A Louisiana gentleman was discussing
the tariff question with a gentleman
from Kentucky.- "Sugar," said the
LiOuisianian, "is as much an article of
necessity aa flour and meat."' "A great
deal more, my dear fellow;" responded
the Kentnckian; "without sugar you
can't make your whisky toddy."
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 touch
of rheumatisn. 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.
Cuts and 'bruises should receive im
mediate treatment before the parts' be-
- come swollen, which can only be done
when Fain Balm is kept at hand. A
sore throat may be cured before it be
comes serious. A troublesome corn may
fee removed by applying it twice a day
for a week or two. A lame back may be
-cured and several days of valuable time
, eaved or a pain in the side or chest re
v lieved without paying a doctor bill. Pro-
- cure a 50 cent bottle at once and you
will never regret it- For sale by Blakeley

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 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
bloodand mucous surfaces of the system.
They offer one hundred dollars for any
case it fails to cure. Send for circulars
and testimonials. ' Address.

On - Alpine Heights Where Goats
and Sheep Fear to Tread. -
Brawny Swiss Maids Compelled to Mow
Grass In Masculine ttlre-i-Welrd.
Kocky Hefflon and Flacky Folk,
Who Inspired Schiller.
, The nay makers on our western
prairies, and for that matter on the
hilly and mountainous meadows of
America, can form no conception of
the'hardships that the Alpine wildheuer
of Switzerland have to brave in order
to gather the winter's provender for
their cattle. . :'
Wildheuer, says the Chicago Inter
Ocean, is the -name given to small
peasants men anH women who
climb the rocky peaks' of the alps
during - the months of l August and
September "and gather the wild hay
that grows On almost 'perpendicular,
isolated grass plots, over yawning1
precipices - - and - near threatening
glaciers. The reader is reminded of
Schiller's graphic description of this
fraternity in William. Tell. It occurs
in the third scene of the - fourth act.
Gessler, the governor of Switz and
TJri,; approaches down ' the sloping
Kuessnacht pass with rocks on either
side:, Before him is a projecting cliff
overgrown with brushwood. Armgard,
the poor wife of a wildheuer, falls with
her children in front of .the governor's
horse and begs for the release of her
husband, who is perishing behind
prison bars, and when Rudolph der
Harras, the adjutant, asks her: "Who
are you, woman, and who . is your hus-.
band?" he receives the following yords
in reply: -
A poor wild-hay man of the Riglberg- ' -Kind
sir, who on the brow of the abyss ' ' .
Mows down the grass from steep and rocky
To which the very cattle dare not climb. -
Harras, the horseman, is conscience
stricken, and thus'' intercedes for the
By Heaven! A sad and miserable life I
I prithee, give the wretched man his freedom;
How great soever his offense may be ':"
His horrid trade is punishment enough. . '
. To the woman: . ' ' '
Yqu shall have justice; to the castle bring
Your suit; this is no place to-deal with it.
And, indeed, no more' dangerous oc
cupation can be imagined. The work
is laborious and the harvest popr.' The
mowers and rakers ascena with ropes
and Alpine shoes the dizzy steepnesses,
where goats and sheep do not venture
to graze, much less the larger cattle.
The mountaineers here are, of course,
never assailed by vertigo and kindred
troubles, which must be accounted for
:"by heredity and constant climbing ol
perilous neignts. iiut for this work
only such men and women can be hired
who can find no other means where
with to keep the wolf from the door.
These are the folks who work during
the balance of the year at ridiculously
low wages by day in villages and inns,
or as wood-choppers and weavers dur
ing the winter. Hundreds of house
holders in this vicinity rely Xov their
whole year's supplv of milk, butter and
cheese on a single pow, and must make
hay on the mountains while the sun
shines during August and September.
EvCry canton in Switzerland has its
hay laws which set apart two months
during the year for- hay gathering and
which appoint the very day on which
the work may be commenced, besides
imposing many other oppressive ordi
nances and regulations. As soon as
the hay day has come these complacent,
easily contented, semi-Roman -Teutons
gather in convivial -companies and be
gin their climbing marches amid the
yodling of popular ditties and the sing
ing of religious hymns. All carry al
penstocks, scythes, rakes and ropes and
a small knapsack of food and drink,
sufficient for several days.
Often places are encountered where
the grass is especially rich and lux
uriant, but which can only be reached
by dangling a mower "down over the
rocks and thus .enabling him to gather
a few sackfuls of hay at a time,' when
another man is let down to finish' the
plot. It is generally found most Ex
pedient to select 'some accessible spot
near the mountain road and then to
throw the hay bundles from the .va
rious little meadows along ' the paths.
And it is marvelous with what dex
terity the rakers have learned to throw
Sometimes, however, no such' con
venient place can be found; then the
poor people are compelled to carry
their heavy, compact bundles on their
shoulders down the steep," dangerous
mountain path or to let them down
with ropes from one to another some
what like the water carriers of ancient
In the Canton Switz many young
women are employed for this work.
They, are usually " robust, . brawny
young maids, " full of courage, . every"
movement betraying power and agility.
Necessity compels them to wear tnas
culine attire during these labors. As
in the case of. the Tyrolean shep
herdesses, skirts would prove a great
impediment in their work.
A. Well Discipled Man.
Army discipline is supposed to be
very -strict indeed, and oders must Tbe
obed swiftly and silently. -The best
disciplined soldier ever in the Russian
army lived in 1777. He was stationed
before the door of the palace during a
heavy flood, when the empress, seeing
from her balcony that the water had
reached the sentinel, called to him to
retire. This the soldier refused to do;
and when the empress asked if he
knew who she was, , the man replied
affirmatively. Although he knew her
majesty he would not leave his post
nntil his corporal - relieved him. The
water increased until it reached the
sentinel's knees. The.' empress sest
several messages to himbut he refused
to obey her. Finally she was compelled
to summon the corporal, who was found
asleep, and he was obliged to swim - to
relieve the honest private, who by that
time had only his head above water,
and ' would composedly have suffered
himself to be drowned rather than
disobey orders while obeying his sover
eign. .- -
