1425 Dunning street, Chicago, 111., the
following letter: '
"For years suffered with catarrh
of the kidneys contracted In the army.
Medicine did not help me any until a
comrade who had been helped by Fe

some at once, and soon found blessed

better than I have done for the past
twenty years, thanks to Perana."

The world to-day is full of innocent sufferers from that most loathsome
disease, Contagious Blood Poison. People know in a general way that it is
a bad disease, but if all its horrors could be brought before them they
would shun it as they do the Leprosy. Not only the person who contracts it
suffers, but the awful taint is transmitted to children, and the fearful sores
and eruptions, weak eyes, Catarrh, and other evidences of poisoned blood
show these little innocents are suffering the awful consequences of some
body's sin. So highly contagious is this form of blood poison that one may
be contaminated by handling the clothing or other articles iu use by a
person afflicted with this miserable disease. There is danger even in drink
ing from the same vessel or eating cut of the same tableware, as many pure
and innocent men and women have found to their sorrow. The virus of

Captain, later General, Meigs was
very proud of this engineering feat,
and always Jealously regarded the
work as being entirely his own. The
erasures on one of the tablets or the
bridge bear witness to his wrath when,
on returning from Tortugas, he ais
covered that Oapt. Henry W. Benhani
and Lieut. J. St. C. Morton, who had
charge of the work during his absence,
had oaused their names to be Inscribed
on the bridge as chief engineers of con
structlon. In addition to removing
these names Capt. Meigs was success
fui In having Capt. Benham ordered to
duty at Tortugas.
It had been Capt. Meigs' Intention
however, to have Inscribed beneath his
own the name of Mr. Rives, and the
letters had already been traced in red
chalk or paint when he received the
news of Mr. Rives' resignation and en
listment in the Confederate army. "No
rebel's name shall appear on tfiy
bridge," said Oapt. Meigs. The stone
cutters' orders were countermanded,
the red letters disappeared, and In
their place were cut the words, "Esto
Perpetua," which Capt. Meigs Intend
ed should express the hope that the
bridge would outlast the memory of
the youth who had deserted It.
Mr. Rives, now nearly 70 years of
age, resides at "Castle Hill," his fine
old estate, near Charlottesville, Va. He
was superintendent "of construction of
the Panama Railroad and Is still prom
lnently connected with the Richmond
and Danville Railroad. He has three
beautiful daughters, one of whom la
known in literary circles as Amelle
Rives and In society as the Princess
Another and still more widely known
erasure was attributed, until recent
years, to Gen. Meigs. This was the
obliteration. In June, 18G2, of the name
of Jefferson Davis from the largest

originally Inscribed as follows:

A Yoiinpr New York Lady Tell
of a wonaeriui uure:
" My trouble was with the ovaries t
I am tall, and the doctor said I grew
too fast for my strength. I suffered
dreadfully from inflammation and
doctored continually, but got no help.
I suffered from terrible orapging sen
sations with the most awful pains low
down in the side and pains in the bock,
and the most agonizing headaches.
No one knows what I endured. Often
I was sick to the stomach, and every
little while I would be too sick to go
to work, for three or four days ; I work
in a large store, and I suppose stand
ing on my feet all day made me worse.

my mothers I began to take Lydia

credit. He took to the Held against the
Cheyenne Indians In 1857 and his
opening fight was near Fort Kearny,
Neb., where he acquitted himself most
gallantly. He took part in the Utah
expedition and, on the breaking out of
the rebellion, proceeded to his native
State and was made lieutenant colonel
of the Second Rhode Island Volun
teers; a month later he was made
colonel, and bad his troops in Vir

JOKE HARRISON ENJOYED.
But Justice Fiold on Whom It Waa
Told, Failed to bee the Fan la It.
For all his ice and chilly quietudes
President Harrison owned a sense of
humor,' and would now and then get
hold of a joke and treasure It as a
schoolboy might au apple, having It
frequently out of his pocket to ex
hibit and admire. One such, says a
writer In the" Saturday Evening Poet,
Is a story he was ever quick to tell
on the austere Justice Field, who
didn't like it.
Complaining letters of all sorts come
to a President. One day a Western
marshal grew querulous because an
item In his accounts', by which the
government was charged with a' car
riage furnished Field from his hotel
to the court, had been disallowed. The
marshal's grief was made the sharper
since his fellow-marshal of an adjoin
ing State had likewise furniahed a
carriage for Field when he held court
within his district, aud the charge
had been allowed and paid.
Commonly little attention Is given
to these cries of the wronged beyond
what Is required to shunt them upon
a "proper" official usually the one
against whom complaint is lodged.
But in this instance Harrison asked
his secretary to discover the troth of
the trouble. Why was one charge al
lowed and the other refused?
.The secretary took a look Into the
riddle and learned that the fortunate
one had been sngaclous enough to In
clude the carriage for Field In his Item
of expense "For care and transporta
tion of prisoners." In that way It
was allowed. It used to give Harri
son much pleasure to relate this yarn;
Field, however, saw nothing funny In
