One of the technical usages of losing one's grip Is in the case of telegraph operators. Many of the most skilled operators suffer at times from a loss of the "grip" and are compelled to give way tempo rarily to a substitute. This "grip" is the hold on tin? key, and the moment the operator begins to lose the control of this "grip" he realizes a rest, al thougl#fur only a brief time, Is due him. Another but unpleasant term applied to this loss of "grip" Is "telegraphers' paralysis." It shows Itself In many curious ways, all showing that tht muscles brought into play in working the key nr^ badly worn. (trie of the most skillful operators In l.ouisville, who Is subject to these at tacks, cannot send "P." The Mors* manual calls for five dots for this let ter. The operator In question has by some hook or crook lost the power to stop at the fifth dot. and it is a com mon thing for him to warn the taker to look nut for his "r's." Kccently he asked a fellow operator to watch him send "P's" and to stop him at the end of the fifth dot It re suited that, although he would be warned at the fourth dot. the fingers, no longer mastered by the brain, would continue dotting beyond the fifth.— Louisville Courier-Journal. Qnlrk WlUed. "It was simply an exhibition of nerve and quick wit." said the old banker who was dining at his club with a number of friends. "No one but the paying teller knew what was happen ing at the time, and what might have been a tragedy was turned Into a com edy by his quick wit "During the noon hour one day an old man approached the raying teller and presented a check for $1.nHMmm. With it was a badly written letter to the effect that if the immediate pay ment of the check was not forthcoming the teller would have his head blown off. He was nothing but a crank, but he had come armed for business, and if the wit of the paying teller had failed him for an Instant there might have been a tragedy. But the paying teller coolly took up the check, glanced at it and then handed it back with the re mark that the crank had neglected to put a stamp upon it In an Instant the crank was full of apologies at his over sight and departed to get a stamp. It took but a moment to notify the police, ami the crank was put where there is no danger of his demanding the pa mont of any more $1,uooaHHJ checks ut the point of a gun."—Detroit Free Press.

Wo have received word of a most remark fcKe offer which is to lr made to woinen by I'it I)rhntati-r, of New York. Tiking the fact that rioxt rear begins a new century. The Delineator offers to di^tri h.iio $17,600 aroorg 1901 women. Ti.e plan is cleverly arranged that a woman lr.-.r.V a small town or vdiapo, has just ai pood a chance to win one of these l:«01 prizes as a woman living in a c:ty—because the prizes aro piven for tho number of eubscr.pt:ona secured in a town in proportion to the popu lation of thai town, instead of ben.g pven •imply to those who send the !arj:en list of Bul-»chi)ers—which, of course, are mo^t easily oii-cned in bi^ cit:cn. Another clever feature of the plan is, that all the cities and towns o 1 the United States and Canada have been ar ranged in seven classes. The cities of the preatest population aro grouped in Class 1 and as theso cities are not very many, the pr:7.es offered are twenty-eight tho high est prize being $500. and ti.e lowest $5.00 The total amount of prizes given away in this clfiss is $1,000. The remaining smaller towns and villages fail into £ix other classes, and as the number of towns in a class increases, be cause, of course, there are more small towns than largo ones, tho amount of prizes given away to a class increases, so that in Class 7 there will bo ,000 distributed among 601 winners. Furthermore, to everyone wh" fails to win one of tho Jf'01 prizes there will be paid an extra commission oa subscriptions, provided they equal one out of every two hundred in habitants of the towa from which the cou ieunt sends them. This is a 'gether a very liberal offer, and ono which tho famous old Peiintalor is well able to mako good. From our point of view, we do not see why such an offer needs to be made by tho Publishers of The Deliiteator, for wo believe it already has nearly half a million subscribers. Its strong hold upon the affec tions of American women has come in th® past generation, from its practical advica about dress details and homo matters. FRED KURTH Dealer in WINES, LPQS, CIGARS.

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.
