There is no medicine so often needed
in every home and so admirably adapted
to the purposes for which it is intended,
as Chamberlain's Pain Balm. Hardly a
week passes but some member of the
family has need of it. A toothache or
headache may be cured by it. A tone1!
of rheumatism or neuralgia quieted.
The severe pain of a burn 'or' scald
promptly relieved and the sore healed in
much less time than when medicine has
to be sent for. A sprain may be
promptly treated before inflamation sets
in, which insures a cure in about one-
third of the time otherwise required.
Cats and bruises should receive im
mediate treatment before the, parts be-
ome swollen, which can only be done
when Pain Balm is kept at hand. A
sore throat may be cured before it be
comes serious. A troublesome corn mav
be removed by applying it twice a day
for a week or two. A lame back may be
cured and several days of valuable time
saved or a pain in the side or chest re
lieved without paying a doctor bill. Pro

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, lor a
great many years doctors . pronounced 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 teaspoonful. It acts directly on the

THE MODERN DRAMA.
It Is a Dress-Coat Affair and Iseka the
- Gorlneas of Yore.
The other night a man went to the
theater who had not been for years,
and he couldn't make it out, says Pear
eon's Weekly. First of all he missed
the simple village, youth, the virtuous
hero who was wont to take the first
prize at the horticultural society, or
else win the guerdon at quoits, or some
thing' or other in the rustic revels. But
worst of all he missed the dear old
fashioned villain, and although this
play had a tremendous villain in it our
friend was not impressed with him a
bit. He sighs thus:
"I came away again, sadly disap
pointed. The play was not what I ex
pected. I shall go no more to .the play
house. The palmy days of the drama
are over, ...The theater has fallen into
the sear and yellow fifth act, and there
is no health, in ill : The theater lias fol
lowed the path of literature and the
good old things are changed.1 I beheld
a lot of swell people In evening dress
on the stage. " They . spoke quietly to
one another, very much as people do oft
the stage, and in very much the same
sort of language.' This is not what I
want when I go to the theater.
"What is the " theatrical villain of to
day?. Is he a real, good, old-fashioned
ruffian? Does he ever drag a helpless
maiden, from the domiciliary roof of
her ancestors by the hair? No, sir.
Does he ever say to the hero: 'Say one
word and thou art food for the wolves?'
Does he ever gran, the heroine by the
wrist, drag her down the stage in
three strides, slam her down in a big
chair, bend over her and whisper
fiendishly: "S death, maiden, but, by
my soul, I love thee! Thou eh alt be
mine! Yield or by heaven I'll '
"That's all I know of that speech,
because 'By heaven I'll' is the. cue for
the maiden to spring up, and, throw
ing.; the villain half . way ' across the
stagef to say: 'Unhand me, ruffian!
And know, that rather than mate with
such as thou, I'd. cast myself from
yonder battlement into the foaming
"And does the villian then say: 'Now,
by heavens, I like thy spirit! I 'love
thee all the more for it?'
"And does the maiden say: 'Merciful
powers, protect me?
"And does the door ' open and the
nero rush in, armed with & good, blunt
broadsword? -. And then do he and the
villain fence up and. down the stage,
bixes, eights, shoulder blows, cut and
thrust? Oh, no. ' These things have
given way to swallow-tailed coats and
high collars, and the villain is now as
big1 a swell as any fellow in the show.
Ca, for the' good old palmy days of the
drama, when the broadsword ruled
and there was gore! The modern
drama is too much like ice cream after
a heavy dinner cold and unsatisfy
ing." ... ' ; .
SERVANTS ON INSTALMENTS.
It Takes Six in Guatemala to Do the Work
or One Girl Here.'
The American .woman, when . she
grumbles at the generality of servants,
doesn't know when she is well off. If
sJie could spend a year at housekeeping
ia Guatemala she would come back to
the United States and pass the rest of
her lixe m peace and contentment, says
the New York Journal. , - -
In Guatemala the servants are either
Indians or half-breeds. They will live
on black beans and tortillas, and as to
waf?es, they are content for a month
with what a servant girl receives here.
But to American housekeeper would
feci inclined to charge a servant'board.
You hire a Guatemala woman, for in-
siisnca, as a cook. Then you must hire
a m;iu to keep the fire going. If he is
away, the cook will let her fire go out
sooner than debase her dignity by put
ting on more fuel. A third servant
must be furnished to put the crude
articles of food into shape for handling
by the cook. A fourth is needed to do
all the carrying. . Still another must
do the dish washing. '.;''
Altogether, a half-dozen servants are
needed to get an ordinary breakfast for
three or four persons. iA bright, in
telligent, sturdy servant in this coun
try would accomplish the same feat all
by herself in an hour, or less. , It is
comparatively inexpensive to maintain
a household ' of twelve or fifteen (ser
vants in Guatemala, but they are a ter
rible trial to an American woman.
Voungrest Sons Favored.
"If one looks about him almost any-
wnere in Maine, says an observing res
ident of that state, "hemHvill find that
in the. matter of descent Of property we
have unconsciously put in force or have
effected just the opposite of the Eng-
lisn rule oi primogeniture. : ' Where
there are a number of children in a
family it is almost always the younsr-
est son that stays with the bid folks
and inherits the homestead. - Where I
live I can point out dozens of such in
stances in the families I . know, and I
cannot now recall a single instance
where any other than the youngest was
preferred. Of course this results from
the disposition of the older boys to seek
their fortunes away from the parental
roof tree as soon as they are, old
enough, -while the younger, with the
others gone, finds room enough for his
activities at home, and stays there. As
distinguished from the old world
method this may be called ultimogeni
Origin of Visiting; Cards.
We owe the invention of - visiting
cards to the Chinese. So long ago as
the period of the Tong . dynasty (618
907) visiting cards were known to be in
common use in China, and that is also
the date of the introduction ' of the
"red . siiken . cords" which figure so
conspicuously on the engagement cards
of that country.
Cat'seyes. Ancient and Modern.
The cat'seye stone; now prized as an
ornament, is a very different thing from
the ancient cat's eye, or eyestone of
India, an agate cut so as to show the
so-called eye or eyes. . It is supposed by
some that this latter was used as mon
ey in many parts of India four centu
ries ago, and specimens found to-day
have an interest of numismatists.
