NIH Klnn«le- and the Gorilla*. On the tJabun river Mis Mary Klngsley's guide one day called to her to creep quietly through the bushes and then she saw a family of five go rillas—an old male, three females and a young one. The guide sneezed, which alarmed the gorillas, and they fled with n bark and a howl, the old male swinging from bough to lough like an acrobat on trapeze. on another day .Miss Kingsley and her two guides came suddenly upon a solitary uiale gorilla, who. as usual, had appropriated n forest glade ns a park for his private enjoyment. Fu rious at tlie intrusion, the brute, in stead of tleeing, came shambling to ward them, growling fiercely. "Shoot him," whispered Miss Kingsley. "I dare not." said the guide, "until he comes quite close. I have only one gun. The other Is out of order. If I miss, he will kill ua." The gorilla came nearer. Rearing himself on his hind legs he beat his breast and roared. Just as Iu Chaillu descrilMHl long ago. Then, running for ward. lie stopped and roared again ahd again ran forward until quite close. Then the guide tired and the gorilla dropped dead.—Chambers Journal. Interested. Mr*. Newrich—1 never can reraemter how many cards to leave when calling.

The plan is so cleverly ami,cod that a woman l.vtng in a arnali town or villain, has just as good charge to win ono of ti.eso K»ul p'./ed as woman living iu a c.tv—bccause tl.e prize® »ro given fur tho num'ter of pul^criptiuns secarc-d in a town iu prnfwrtion to the popu Ution of that town, instead of Leine given simply to thoso who pond tho lar^re^i list of BulR«criler3—which, of eour?e, are most easily obtained in big Hue*. Another clever feature of the plan is, that all tho cities and towns of the Tinted States and Canada have been ar ranged in seven classes. The cities of the greatest population aro prouj«ed in Class 1 and as these cities are not very many, the prizes offered are twenty-eight tho high est prize being $500, and the lowest $5.00, The total amount of pr /.es given away in this class is $1,000. Tho remaining smaller towns and villages fall into eix other ciases, and aa tho number of towns in a class increases, be cause. of course, there aro more small towns than largo ones, the amount of prizes given away to a class increases, so that in Class T, there will bo $4,000 distributed among 601 winners. Furthermore, to everyone who fails to win one of the ll'Ol prizes there will bo paid an extra commission on subscriptions, provided they equal one out of every two hundred FRED KURTH can you think of the atmosphere beitii. 8i'qt seems to me." replied Miss De Muir, "I have read somewhere of IB wind."—Chicago Tribune.

WINE OF A LITTLE DOES MUCH. BOOWB, IOWA, Dec. It. Jfo tongue can tell what I bare endqfud In the past ten years with my monthly sick ness. While suffering untold agony, a friend called and recommended Wine of Cardui. I sent for a bottle, and Oh! what relief. After the first dose I began to feel better »Bd have had no pain lince. MBS. GRACE LAMPHEEE. WneTG*"11 Wine of Cardui not only cures but it acts AT ONCE. Here is a case often vears' standing, and yet one single dose made the sufferer feel better, and stopped the pain. The Wine goes straight to the seat of the trouble. It acts directly upon the menstrual and genital organs. Its action is not violent, and it does not force a result. It simply gives Nature that little assistance that the sufferer's system lacks. A single disorder in the feminine organs spreads many "disorders all over the body, and when the Wine cures the source, all the other ills vanish as a matter of course. A woman can be her own physician and cure herself at home.
