There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years
was supposed to be incurable. For a
great many years doctors pronpunced it
a local disease, and prescribed local rem
edies, and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it in
curable. Science has proven catarrh to
be a constitutional disease and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only
-constitutional cure in the market. It is
taken internally in doses from 10 drops
- to a teaspoon ful. It acts directly on the
bloodjand mucous surfaces of the system.

VARIETIES OF COURTSHIP
The Antique, the Progressive and
the Ephemera. .
A Chaperon. Gives Rome Interesting Ob
servations Upon the Workings of
- ' - the Tender Passion in Tonng
Girls of To-Day.
"You see," said the chaperon of a
quartette of lively girls at Long1
Branch, says the Chicago Inter Ocean,
"there are now three kinds of court
ing the antique, the progressive and
the ephemeral. Odd, isn't it, where
the heart is concerned? Both the an
tique and the ephemeral kind are
found among the old girls and boys and
the debutantes, while the progressive
sort is confined mostly to those' who
have been in society a half dozen sea
sons or less.
"The antique ; is the kind which has
for its password one life, one love. The
ephemeral lends to the fancy of the
hour without further reflection. The
progressive is one with which we have
to deal in answering the query: 'Where
are the old f avorities, and why are the
younger set so popular?'
"It is most natural that the matured
bachelor and the rosebud should enjoy
each other's society. This is epheme
ral, no responsibility, no care; but the
rosebud has a decided advantage over
her courtly gallant; for, while she is
becoming skillful in the use of Cupid's
weapons, he is losing time and ground
and some day will awaken to the truth
that he is growing old, bald and ridiculous.-
"What does the young girl see in
her old escort? Mostly attention,
which is very flattering to her in her
first season out. And the bachelor
what does he see in her? He is lonely.
The women of his set have disappeared
somewhere, and he is willing to buy
candy, kiss lap dogs, do anything to be
entertained and entertaining. In this
capacity the bachelor is a most
useful member of society. He has
even been known to walk around with
grandmamma and to carry the mar
ried sister's baby and luggage to the
"Progressive courtship is curious.
When a young woman begins to enter
tain serious thoughts of her future,
whether 'in choosing a profession, a
business or a husband, she rises above
driftwood and marks a tree that will
shelter her. Her time, also, is a con
sideration. She cannot waste years
dallying with an old beau, a perennial.
"These perennials are many of them
good souls, nice for escorts, but not up
to date enough for ideal husbands. So
the marriageable women, those who
can preside with dignity over neat
homes the belles, in short, of past
seasons leave the ranks and form new
"When a young woman becomes in
different to parties, likes distant
friends, protracted visits and can't be
located, keep a sharp lookout among
the marriage notices. The out-of-town
men secure most of the home prizes.
The only chance for home bachelors is
to emulate the example of the girls
that is, to go out of town, too, where
they are not known as everlastings.
"Suppose, however, that they can
not give up the old favorites; suppose
that there is a great tugging at the
heart when they think of losing them.
In such cases, if the men value their
happiness and wish 'to wager on their
chances, they must become specialists
in love and ply their skill increasingly
as the summer season approaches.
'Good by, sweetheart!' if said idly, will
be detected by no one more quickly
than by the young lady herself, and
the chance will be greatly in favor of
that London, Philadelphia or Balti
COMEDY BY THE SEA.
The Forward Kollt Garrulous Mothers
The Conceited Dancer.
It's good fun to sit apart and notice
the people at swell summer hotels,
though sometimes it's a little sad, too,
says an eastern' correspondent.
The forward folk, who try to get ac
quainted with each newcomer of pre
tentious appearance, and who gets
dropped as frequently as they are taken
up, are amusing, as the newly rich, who
fancy the ready road to elegance is
gained by assuming a fierce haughti
ness, the maintaining of which makes
them as uncomfortable as it does their
The garrulous mothers who have to
talk all day long about the charms and
perfections of their daughters are pretty
Then there are the two or three
lonely creatures who have drifted in
somehow and are out of their element,
and are quite conscious of the fact.
They mournfully sit out the concerts
and eat their meals almost tearfully.
There are, as a rule, so few men at
the summer resorts that the few who
linger longer than over Sunday get so
swelled with their own importance' that
they are unbearably saucy.
'At the hop the other night I noticed
that the manner of the dancing men
was as full of conceit as is a pudding
They lounged up to a girl, held out
their arms, smiled - a sickly smile, as'
who should say:
"I'll give you a turn or two, poor
I'd cling to the wall till I took root
before I'd dance with them, but girls
aren't all alike, and the conceited chaps
had only to "drop the handkerchief."
Great Temples of India.
Mayalipmam, India, has seven of the
most remarkable temples in the world,
each of these unique places of worship
having been fashioned from solid
granite bowlders. Some idea of their
size and the task of chiseling out the
interior may be gleaned from the fact
that the smallest of the seven is twenty-four
feet high, seventeen feet long
and twelve feet wide. Travelers who
have carefully examined them are of
the opinion that it took centuries
of work to carve those graceful edifices,
from native rock.
FUN "WITH A SEA TURTLE.
An Experience That iKatted Some lroflt
to the Old Sea Captain. .
' "I am reminded. said an old coast
ing captain to a Washington Star man
recently, "of an experience I once had
with sea turtles on the edge of the
gulf stream, about sixty miles from
-Hatteras. I was -part owner and cap
tain of the Mary Lyle at that time, and
was coming up from Savannah with a
half cargo of rice, when, one morning,
the lookout yelled to me to come up on
deck and look a.t the sea turtles. When
I got up and looked over the rail, the
whole ocean, as far as I could see
ahead of us, was covered with turtles.
They were tremendous fellows, and
were paddling along' lazily in the op
posite direction to that in which we
were going. It didn't take us long to
rig up a windlass and tackle and begin
pulling some of the old fellows aboard
We picked the biggest, as the came,
and in the course of three hours we had
caught twenty-six, about all that we
could handily dispose of about the
ship. ' Only nine of them lived until
we reached New York, and we sold
them for good prices. The shell of one
tLat weighed four hundred and seven
ty pounds is now in front of an eating
house on Houston street, New York. . I
would hate to say how many turtles
were in sight of the Mary Lyle that
day, for fear somebody might think I
was fish-yarning, but they come by us
steadily for five, hours, and when we
got well into the school it extended as
far as the eye could reach on all sides, '
and there was a turtle to about every
forty square feet of water, and I didn't
see one that weighed less than one"
hundred and fifty pounds."
DEADLIEST KNOWN POISON.
Shophanthldin, from an African Plant,
an Atom of Which Is Dangerous.
To the best of our knowledge, says
the Brooklyn Eagle, the most deadly
poison is that which was discovered by
Prof. Frazer, of Edinburgh, Scotland,
and known as shophanthidin. He sep
arated it from the- African poison
plant, shophanthus hispidus, by means
of ether and alcohol. As little as a one-thousand-millionth
partof an ounce of
crystallized shophanthidin produces a
distinctly injurious effect upon the
heart, and a very small quantity is
fatal. Another deadly poison is cyano
gen gas, the principal ingredients of
hydrocyanic or prussic acid.
At ordinary temperatures it is sim
ply a gas, but can be condensed by cold
and pressure into a thin, colorless
liquid and becomes a solid at thirty
degrees Fahrenheit. The inhalation in
its gaseous state of a most minute
quantity would cause instant death.
One of the. most deadly poisons
is arseniuretted hydrogen, or arsenic,
which is formed by decomposing'
an alloy of arsenic and zinc with sul
phuric acid. It is a colorless gas, pos
sessing a fetid odor of garlic, and acts
as a most deadly poison.
Adolph Ferdinand Gehlen, a chemist,
born about 1775 at Butow, in Pomer
ania, was the discoverer of it. While
experimentine with it at Munich, on
July 15, he inhaled a single bubble of
the pure gas and died in eight days
from the effects. The accident oc
curred through his smelling at the
joints of his apparatus to discover a
flaw. Others engaged in chemical
operations have died from the effects
of this poison in three days. '
A .French Count Who Could Not Be Oat
done in Gallantry.
Frenchmen of the old school did at
times tremendously polite things, such
as breaking their necks to pick up a
lady's fan, or setting fire to a house to
dry her when caught in a shower of
rain, or running through the body any
one who should dare to say that her
foot was large or her nose red. In our
days Frenchmen are not such idiots,
and yet they sometimes do exceeding
ly foolish things in the polite line.
This story, for example, is related of a
Count de Lecouiteux.
In descending the staircase of the
opera one night a lady of his acquaint
ance had a lace dress - of considerable
value torn by a man treading on it.
After an exclamation of impatience
she turned to the count and said:
"Have you a pin?" "Madame," he said,
"I don't carry a pincushion, but here is
one," and he drew from his breast a
valuable diamond. "Sir,", said the
lady, nettled probably by his retort
about the pincushion, "I cannot accept
a diamond from you." "Well, then,"
returned he, "here is a pin without a
.diamond;" and breaking off the jewel
he threw it out of the window and pre
sented the simple pin.
On an Indian Hunting; Tour.
The most exciting and by far the
most interesting hunting expeditions I
ever went on, said Capt. M. P. Wallace,
an ex-army officer, to the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat, "were those with the
Indians while I was stationed on the
plains. The consummate grace and
skill of the men and the speed and
agility of their ponies were well dis
played on such occasions as these. Fre
quently the hunt would be signalized
by some daring- feat of bravado. On
one occasion I saw an athlcjic young
Indian ride his horse up close to the side
of a big buffalo bull and spring from
the horse on to the back of the buffalo,
ride the savage creature several hun
dred yards, and then with his knife
give it its death stroke."
Lived a Lifetime In Twelve Tears.
" The most remarkable instance of
rapid growth was recorded by the
French academy in 1729. It was a boy
six years of age, five feet six inches in
height. " At the age of five his voice
changed, at six bis beard had grown,
and he appeared a man of thirty. He
possessed great physical strength, and
could easily lift to his shoulders and
carry bags of grain that weighed two
hundred pounds. His decline was as
rapid as his growth. At eight his hair
and beard were gray; at ten he tot
tered in his walk, his teeth fell out
and his hands became palsied; at
twelve he died with every outward
sign of extreme old age.
