Salt pork is a famous old
fashioned remedy for con

pork,'' was the advice to the
consumptive 50 and 100
Salt pork is good if a man
can stomach it. The idea
behind it is that flit is the
food the consumptive needs
Scot t's Em ulsion is the mod
ern method of feeding flit to
the consumptive. I'ork is too
roiiiih for sensitive stomachs.
Scott's Emulsion is the most
refined of fats, especially
prepared for easy digestion.
Feediiv' 'him fat in this
way, which is often the only
way, is half the battle, but
Scott's Emulsion does more
than that. There is some
thing about the combination
of cod liver oil and hvpophos
phites in Scott's Emulsion
that puts new life into the
weak parts and has a special
action on the diseased lun :rs.

The man who puts on stilts does not in
crease his actual stature by the breadth of
a hair. He feels taller while he's on the
stilts, and when he's off them he feels
shorter than he ever
felt. Stimulants are
the stilts of the stom
ach. They make a
man feel better for the
time being, hut he
feels a great deal worse
for them afterward.
The need of the man
whose stomach is
"weak" is not stimu
lation but strength.
Dr. Pierce's Golden
perfectly answers that
need. It cures the dis
eases of the digestive
and nutritive system
which make the stom
ach "weak." It en
ables the digestion and
assimilation of food, so
that the body receives
the nutrition on which
depends its strength.

Dr. Pierce's Golden Med

trouble," writes Clarence
Carues, Esq., Taylorstown,

me so much good that I
didn't take any more. I
can eat most anything
now. I am so well pleased
with it I hardly know how to thank you for your
kiud information. I tried a whole lot of things
before I wrote to you. A gentleman told me of
your medicine, and how it cured his wife.
Thought I would try a bottle of it. Am now
glad that I did, for I do not know what I should

Have you ever noticed the Interest
that money attracts even if It ls only
a single cent? The next time that you
see a copper coin dropped in a street
car just observe. Every eye in tlic
car will turn to the spot where it
dropped, and there will be manifested
a real geneial concern over its recov
ery. Two or three heads are likely
to come in con tact over the point of its
disappearance, and then their owners
will draw suddenly back and try to
epponr unconcerned, but in another
second t'.toy are again leaning forward.
Ti' man who dropped the cent is
usu:, liy tlii; first who appears to have
brushed memory of the trivial occur
rence aside, but just as soon as the
eyes in the car liave turned from him
his own are sure to go back to the
floor in the hope that the truant coin
Will be seen.
When he has gone, there is a re
newed interest among the passengers,
for the stage of "tinders keepers" has
arrived, and those near the spot of
disappearance become quite diligent
until they are aware they make a cen
ter of attraction. But interest in that
little coin is not lost while there is a
passenger left, and when the car Is
empty the conductor takes his turn
and resurrects the cent. New York

An elderly minister is fond of telling
of a "break" he once made at a double
wedding of two sisters. It was ar
ranged that the two couples should be
married with one ceremony, the two
brides responding at the same time
nnd the two bridegrooms doing the
same. There hud not been any pre
vious rehearsal, as the minister had
come a long distance and had reached
the church but a few minutes before
the time for the ceremony.
All went well until it came time for
the minister to say, "And now I pro
nounce you man and wife."
It suddenly became obvious to the
minister that the usual formula would
not do in the case of two men and two
wives, and he could not think of any
way of making "man" and "wife"
plural in the sentence. In his despera
tion and confusion he lifted his hands
and said solemnly: '
"And now 1 pronounce you, one and
all, husband and wife"''

A notorious pnublc-r, who died some
time ago, once wagered a thousand dol

in succession. His offer was taken up
by a fellow clubman. The dice were
brought, and his opponent actually
threw six nine times In succession. The
gambler then offered $470 to be free
of the bet. The other man declined,
had his tenth throw and failed to get
Just to show how very little the av
erage man knows about the doctrine
of chances a well known mathematic
ian has pointed out the real odds about
this bet. The chances were no less
than G0,4t;t,173 to 1 against six being
thrown ton times in succession; there
fore the real bet should have been
about $000,000 to 1 cent against such a
thing happening. Pittsburg Gazette.
"Well, .James, how are you feeling
today';" said the minister to one of his
parishiomrs, mi idd man suffering
from chronic rheumatism. "You are
uot looking as lu-isk as usual."
"Na, sir," replied the old fellow sad
ly. "I've been gey unfortinit the day."

lawyer body this uioruln' tellin' me
