Nerve Slavery, It is present-day conditions heaping burdens of work upon the nervous system tliat tells the story premature breaking up of health. It tells why so many men and women, who so far as age in years it concerned, should be in the prime of health, find them selves letting go of the strength, the power, the vitality they once possessed. It is be cause that great motor power of the body, nerve fcrce, is impaired Every organ de pends upon its controlling power just as much as the engine depends upon the steam to put it into action. An engine won't go without steam. Neither will the heart, the brain, the liver, the kidneys, the stomach act right without their1 proper nerve force supply. Let any organ be lacking in this essential and troubles beginsome of them are: Throbbing, palpitating heart Sleepless sights. Sudden start frigs. Morning languor. Brain fag. Inability to work or think. Exhaustion on exertion. Flagging appetite. Digestion slow. Food heavy. Easily excited, nervous, Irritable Strength fails. Loss of flesh and muscular power. Settled melancholia. Utttr despondency. A picture, hideous, but easily changed to one of brightness by use of Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Fills. They build up tbs nerves and supply nerve force.

T h" Or i k I n a i"Sq"a e e r " The greyest injury which Dlcken ever intll.iid on a fellow being was his too u ecu rate portrait of an inno cent man iu bis Squeers. That York Bh'te schoolmasters were, as n rule, cruel uiui Mcked enough It is true, but the partieuhir KchuolutasUT Wut w-is recognized and who recognized him self n the original Suecrs seems to have been an exception to the rule. It will bo remembered that DIcken and his illustrator traveled together to the north of England for the pur poso of collecting material for "Nick leby" and especially for the Dot he boys opi.so.le. At (J rent Bridge they visited a h ording school known as Bowes iieiiilrniy. The master, William Shaw, ttvoiwd the strangers with some hauteur and did not as much as withdraw Lis eyes from the operation of peiiunikiug during the interview. Phiz sketched him in the act: Box described the act. The personal pecul iarities of William Shaw were recog nized in Snuvrs. Shaw became a butt of.. popular ridicule, lost his pupils and finally died of a broken heart. Yet there Is Abundant evidence to prove that he w.is a really excellent and kind hearted in.ui, who was made to suffer for th' misdeeds of bis neighbors. Literary !:. Anta nuil MnK"t U111. That ants doctor their sick by hyp notism and magnetism Is proved by ob servation. An ardent student tells how he witnessed what may be termed a seance hi medical science among ants, fie saw several of these little creatures emerge t'r ni tie hill and 'noticed that there were some among them which were wc-U end emaciated invalids, in fact. Tliey were accompanied by healthy members of the community, and all m.-ide their way toward a dls- mt mou-'il. On following their movements through a glass the observer saw on this mound a big and sturdy ant. which made some motions In the direction of the advanc ing Invalids. The latter went up the mound, one by one. and submitted themselves to treatment. This consist ed in the physician ant passing his feel ers over the head and body of the pa tient i'.i a manner distinctly suggestive of the hypnotizing of nerves and mus cles practiced by human doctors. Ev ery one went through the treatment: then the patients went back, and the doctor marched off in the opposite di rection. Sealaklrt OoeM'i't Conic From Seitla. The beautti'ul product used for cloth ing and commonly known as sealskin Is not furnished by the true seal, whose skin is almost useless except when used as an ornamental mat or stiff rug. They are the sea lions and sea bears the eared seals, otaria whose skins are so highly valued because so soft and warm. The true seal is common enough, but its skin is only prized as a trophy, and It may be added that sealskin when ready for clothing has not. as often supposed, the same downy appearance e.i ti e living animal, being covered with 1 n.;. coarse, deep rooted hairs, which drop out when dressed by the furrier and leave the soft, woolly hair uninjured.

"In photography." he explained, "the negatiw is deel .ed In the dark room, while in c-urtshlp that Is where the aflirniative Is developed." She blushed, but made no answer.

Of these there are several varieties. Every week or two we would see what looked like a fog form about the distant hills and then come drifting across the creek valley. Doubtless It was a real snow laden cloud that had been drifting along until It struck our level (1,300 feet above the sea) In the Adlrondacks, when the conditions became favorable f( r the release of Its feathery burden. We saw these clouds fill the nlr with flakes that were driven along almost horizontally by n strong gale, although the tops of our old hemlocks - and spruces rose Into the clear air and un obstructed, sunlight above the highest level of the snow producing air strat um. We even saw the snow so thick In the nlr about us that the trunks of trees six feet above the earth were not visible, although the treetops could be seen, and the sun shone down through the shallow storm with strength enough to cast distinct shad ows. We have stood on a quiet, sunlit hill top and looked down Into a valley less han 1) feet below us, where a snow storm was raging with violence and the temperature was f rigid. Scrlb ner's. A Mtn In the House. - There is a y ung criminal lawyer In Memphis, Tenn.. who on the occasion of h!s becoming of uge began the cele bration of his birthday In a way that canst d bis household a great deal of consternation. On the eve of the fete, shortly after midnight, the young man's family were suddenly startled from their slumbers by a I Hid xo'ce In the house calling: "There's a man In the house! There's a man in the house!" The valiant pater famlllns rushed from his r om. bearing In his hands a heavy bill' t of firewood, to learn the cause of the disturbance and to cap ture the Intruder.

Terrlfc Thnnder. The largest rainfall on earth has been recorded at Chera Punji. on the bay of Bengal, but the most violent thunder storms ever observed are probably those of French dulana. At Cape Or ange, some forty miles south of Cay enne, a French naval otlleor saw tlje rills of the coast hills turned Into wa terfalls by a cloudburstlike storm. while the crashing thunder peals were Incessant and often almost deafening, so much so. indeed, that some of the sailors began to mutter long forgotten prayers, probably thinking the day of Judgment near at hand. o t'.inne For Care.
