X.IKB A Thief iir the Night,
Consumption comes. A slight cold,
with your system in the scrofulous
ondition that's caused by impure
blood, is enough to fasten it upon
you. That is the time when neglect
and delay are full of danger..
Consumption is Lung - Scrofula.
You can prevent it, and you can
cure it if you haven't waited too
long, with Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery. That is the most
potent blood - cleanser, strength -restorer,
and flesh-builder that's known
to medical science. For every dis
ease that has to be reached through
the blood, like Consumption, for
Scrofula in all its forms, Weak
Liungs, Bronchitis, Asthma, and all
eevere, lingering Coughs, it is the
only guaranteed remedy. If it
doesn't benefit or cure, yon have
your money back.
The proprietors of Dr. Sage's Ca
tarrh Remedy know that their medi
cine perfectly and permanently cures
Catarrh. To prove it to you, they
make this offer : If they can't cure
your Catarrh, no matter what your
case is, they'll pay you $500 in cash.

(Last June, Dick Crawford brought his
twelve months old child, suffering from
infantile diarrhoea, to me. It had been
weaned at four months old and being
ickly everything ran through it like
water through a sieve. I give it the
usual treatment in ench cases, but with
out benefit. The child kept growing
thinner until it weighed but little more
than when born, or perhaps ten pounds.
X itren started the father to giving
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy. Before one bottle
of the 25 cent size had been used, a
anarked improvement was seen andits
continued use cured the child. Its
weakness nad puny constitution disap
peared and its father and myself believe
sfche child's life was saved by this remedy.

Deafness Cannot be Cored
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure Deafness,
nd that is by constitutional remedies.
Peafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
, imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely
closed Deafness is the result, aud unless
ttre inflammation can be taken out and
thrS'ttibe restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever ;
nrine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (.caused by catarih
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars, free.

AN ALLIGATOR STORY.
Lost Messenger Boy In India Discovered
In an Alligator's Throat.
"Of all the inhabitants-of the great
rivers of India the alligator is the most
formidable," said Capt. L. E. Ballou, of
London, England, recently, according
to the St. Louis - Globe-Democrat.
"While I was stationed there several
years ago I saw a sight the thought of
which always causes a shudder to creep
over me. A lady near where I lived
had sent a little native boy with a let
ter to a friend at some little distance,
with the request to send back a reply.
Being a trustworthy little fellow some
surprise was felt when he did not re
turn after a reasonable absence. After
waiting several hours with no sign of
the messenger, a searching party, of
which I was a member, was made up to
try to discover his whereabouts. After
scouring the country for some time we
came to the river bank and a short dis
tance away saw a dead alligator lying
on the shore with its. great jaws ex
tended to their utmost. On examining1
it to discover the cause of so strange
an appearance we found to our horror
that it had devoured the missing boy,
and had attempted to swallow his head
whole. This, however, it was unable
to do, and had been suffocated in the
attempt. The boy's head was still cov
ered by his turban, which, when re
moved, disclosed the answer to his mis
tress' letter, which he was faithfully
bringing back. It was supposed that
while attempting to swim the river he
had been seized by the alligator, as
these huge reptiles are very clever in
concealing themselves till their victim
is well within reach, and then pounc
ing on their prey."
SCHOOL LIFE IN . ARMENIA.
Children Have to Work Harder and Do
Not Learn as Rapidly.
There arer-two classes of schools in
Armenia, private and public. The pri
vate schools begin at sunrise and end
at sunset. Each child brings a piece
of carpet, which he places on the floor,
and upon which he sits all day until
sunset, when he carries home again his
square rug. The children supply their
own books, consequently the text
books vary from a bible, a prayer book
to a newspaper, and when a pupil has
learned all in his own text-book he ex
changes it with another student, and
As a rule, says the Boston Herald, at
the end of the four years' course the
children leave school scarcely knowing
how to read. This is not owing to the
lack of intelligence on the children's
part, but the result of the defective
system in teaching them.
The public schools are substantially
the same as those in America, with the
exception that the sexes are taught- in
separate buildings. Religious instruc
tion is given in the schools, the church
es deeming it unnecessary to support
Sunday schools. As all the children
are of one faith, there is no religious
conflict. The course of study in the
schools is very hard, because of the
different languages spoken in the sev
eral sections ot ttte country. Even the
Russian language is studied. In summer
the private schools are held out of
PURITY OF WATER.
Clearness and Tastelessness Are Not Nec
essarily Proofs of Purity.
The popular standards of the purity
of water are clearness, tastelessness
and colorlessness, and yet they are in
reality less desirable qualities than are
softness, freedom from putresciple or
ganic matter, and stability in storage.
For instance, says the Literarj- Digest,a
colorless and perfectly clear frround
water, especially when high in ni-'
trates, will, if confined in open reser
voir, promote and support a more vig--orous
growth of organisms and may be
come fouled and polluted to a much
greater extent than will many surface
waters similarly confined and either
deeply colored by dissolved vegetable
matter, or loaded with clay and sand in
suspension. Likewise, a water meeting
the requirements of the popular stand
ard, but containing much lime and
magnesia, particularly in the form of
sulphates, is unfit for use in boilers and
houses, while a ground water contain
ing peroxide of iron will cause much
trouble and annoyance by the deposits
of iron rust in the distribution pipes,
and will prove very unsatisfactory in
washing and cooking.
GRIPMEN ARE ONE-SIDED.
Half of Their Kodies Developed by Hand
ling the Heavy Levers.
"All the gripmen necessarily must
be muscular," said a big Chicago cable
train driver recently, "for the physical
exertion is great and a weak man
could not stand the strain. It's a sort
of one-sided trade, though. If a fel
low sticks to it long he gets bigger on
the right side of his body than on the
left, for tlje pulling and pushing, haul
ing and jerking are done mostly with
that side. I don't know any man who's
been at the work long enough to be
come really deformed by it, but I've
seen many gripmen who were plainly
larger, heavier, more muscular on the
right -side, especially -in the shoulder,
than on the other side. No; I've never
seen the phenomenal enlargement the
'gripman's arm,' the boys call it on
the left side, for the simple reason that
the builders of grip cars don't take
left-handed men into their calculations.
There are no left-handed grip cars; con
sequently there are no left-handed
Hatha in Japan.
Nearly all . American and European
visitors to Japan speak with admiration
of the public baths of that country
In the city of Tokio there are between
eight hundred and nine hundred public
bathing establishments, each frequent
ed daily .by at least three hundred peo
ple, who pay for the privilege so small
a sum that no one is too poor to afford
it. Outside of these baths the Japan
ese are much given to bathing in their
own homes. They are one of the clean
est races in the world. Travelers from
the western world frequently express
regret that in Europe and America there
are no such establishments.
