"For five years, I suffered untold misery
from muscular rheumatism. I tried every

toeing twisted up in knots. I was unable to
dress myself, except with assistance, and
could only hobble about by using a cane. I
liad no appetite, and was assured, by the
doctors, that I could not live. The pains, at
times, were so awful, that I could procure
relid only by means of hypodermic Injec

In clay, in sulphur, in poultices; but these
gave only temporary relief. After trying
everything, and suffering the most awful
tortures, I began to take Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
Inside of two months, I was able to walk
without a cane. In three months, my limbs
began to strengthen, and in the course of a
year, I was cured. My weight has increased
to 165 pounds, and I am now able to do my
full day's work as a railroad blacksmith."

Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the extra
ordinary distinction of having been the
only blood purifier allowed on exhibit at
the world's fair, Chicago. Manufact
urers of other sarsaparillas sought by
every means to obtain a showing of their
goods, but tbey were all turned away
under the application of the rule for
bidding the entry of patent medicines
and nostrums. The decision of the
world's fair authorities intavorof Ayer's
Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows:
"Ayer's Sarsaparilla Is not a patent
medicine. It does not belong to the
list of nostrums. It is here on its

Jatnes L. Francis, Alderman, Chicago,
eays: "I regard Dr. King's New Dis

colds and Lung Complaints, having used
it in my family for the last five years,
to the exclusion of physician's prescrip

Rev. John BurguB, Keokuk, Iowa,
writes: "I have been a Minister of the
Methodist Episcopal church for 50 years
or more, and have never found anything
so beneficial, or that gave me such speedy
relief as Dr. King's New Discovery."

It is said that a dog in Milliken,
Mich., possesses and uses daily a full set
of artificial teeth. -- The dog is very old,
ond it is a family pet. When it lost its
teeth recently its owner, according to
the story, hod the local dentist make
the animal a full set of teeth and they
ore said to be a perfect working- suc
cess. " - - .
The old notion that southern wom
en are languid, feeble folk ought to be
dispelled by the ac$ of four women in
a suburb of Macon, Ga. A house took
fire during the night and the neighbors
gathered to help the inmates in saving
their effects. Four women carried a
large upright piano from the parlor all
the way out into the middle of the
A Xox and a hunter together stalked
a partridge near Tyson, Vt., the other
c!ny, but each unknown to the other.
The bird alighted in an apple tree be
hind the burn, and the hunter tiptoed
oroundoneside of the barn and brought
the bird down. But as the bird dropped
the fox, coming round the other side of
the barn, seized it and was off with his
dinner before the hunter could appre
ciate what had happened. -
The tail of the crawfish serves that
animal as an oar. By a peculiar jerk
of the tail the animal can retire from a
dangerous object with almost incredi
ble swiftness. The tail is -much more
elfective in moving the animal back
ward than forward, a singular instance
of adaptation ie its situation, for by
menus of its tail it can withdraw iruto
its hole with such swiftness as in an
instant to place it outof danger.
The latest story of a wonderful
gold find in Alaska is of a lake whose
bed is literally paved deep with gold
dust The lake is 1,000 yards long, 400
yards wide and 150 feet deep. It is fed
by water from a glacier, and its only
outlet is a little stream two feet deep,
but of incredible swiftness. The assay
of the sand which a sea captain brought
to Seattle recently showed $8 to $10 a
cubic yard, and on this basis a man
alone could take out $10,000 a year.
The big white moose recently shot
in the Maine woods by a Mr. Sargent, of
Grafton, has greatly interested natural
ists as well as sportsmen. It is the only
white moose ever seen in Maine, and
very few have ever been heard of else
where. The . naturalists say it is, of
course, not strange that there should
be an albino moose, resulting' from a
freak of nature, as white deer and other
albino game animals are not uncom
mon. But white moose are a great

Rehearsing In the Kitchen Before a Ut
ile Negro Servant.
In the south most of the servants
were negroes. Among ours was a lit

she called herself) whose chief attrae
tion to me was her enthusiasm for the
One night in desperation I went to
her while she was washing dishes in
the kitchen and there unfolded all my
hopes. It was to her I first acted, and
she gave me my first npplause. The
clapping of those soapy, steaming
lianus seemed to me a veritable tri
Believing that a tragic manner alone
would, sufficiently impress the situa
tion on the "nut-brown maid," I began
with a hollow voice and much furrow
ing of the brow: "Juli, wilt thou fol
low and assist me when I quit my child
hood's home to walk in the path of
bullions, Kemble and Booth?" "Oh,
Miss Manie, yon kin count on dis pus-
son, fo' de Lor you kin! Why, my
stars, what a boss actor you is! But
you mus low me to call you maw,
and in a trice she was gone.
. A few moments later she reentered
the kitchen with my mother, who was
greatly surprised by my performance
in the fourth act of '"The Lady of Ly
ons," which could not have been acted
in a more appropriate part of the
house. She, in turn, called the critic
of the family, Dr. Griffin, who, likewise,
was astonished, and made my heart
beat with joy by saying: "You'll make
a good actress some day. Your scene
has thrilled me, and I would rather
have rough work and a good thrill than
any amount of artistic work without

called for his bill. . When it was given

looked at it for a moment and then
passed it back.

ROUGH ON : THE SENTRY.
The Remedy Was All Right, Bat It Warn
Given to the Wrong Man.
One of the most amusing stories of
the. day treats of mistaken, . philan
thropy, according to Tid-Bits. At a
certain army post there was a London
sentry on duty near the hospital. The
surgeon was preparing to go to bed in
side, when he was annoyed and alarmed
at the sentry s coughing. ' His ex
perienced ear told him that the man
had a severe bronchial affliction need
ing a strong remedy.
He debated awhile with himself and
then going into the dispensing-room
compounded a powerful mixture. This
he took outside to the sentry, with in
structions to swallow it immediately.
The man refused. The surgeon in
sisted, and finally commanded the
soldier to take the medicine, which he
did with much grumbling. Then the
worthy surgeon went to bed, pleased to
hear no more coughing.
Next morning, to his surprise, the
commanding officer sent for him and
said that the sentry had complained
declaring that the surgeon had forced
him to swallow something he thought
was poison. An investigation followed,
and revealed the fact that while the
surgeon was mixing the medicine the
coughing sentry had been relieved, and
consequently the ' remedy had been
given to the wrong man.
Eh osphorns in the Unman Body.
The human brain contains a consid
erable proportion of phosphorus, vary
ing from 1-20 to 1-30 of the entire mass.
If the average weight of the Caucasian
brain be..takenat. HV2. ounces it will
then contain an amount of phosphorus
-amounting to from 1 7-12 to 2 ounces.
A curious fact regarding this phos

Great Wear of Railroad Iron
Taking the total length of the rail
ways of the world at even 60,000 miles,
and allowing a daily average of ten
trains over each road, it is estimated
that the. total loss "of iron by wear and
tear each day of the year is not less
than 600 tons. The iron thus lost goes
back to the earth in the shape of fine
powder, which is finally transformed
into soluble iron salts.
