A PREACHER'S EXPERIENCE.
"Three months ago, I took a vio
lent cold which resulted in an attack
of acute, bronchitis. I put myself
under medical treatment, and at the
end of two months was no better.
I found it very . difficult to preachr
and concluded to try Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. The first bottle pave me
great relief ; the second, which I am
now taking, has relieved me almost
entirely of all unpleasant symptoms,
and I feel sure that one or two bot
tles more will effect a permanent
cure. To all ministers suffering from
throat troubles, I recommend Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral." E. M. Brawst,

Thoughts of Spring.
Some thoughts on spring are not fit
Spring ia the eeason when poets and
livers get out of order.
If yon have flannels to shed, prepare'
to shed them in July.
The well-known poetical reference to
flpring as an "ethereal mildness" was
promulgated long before the introduc
tion of the weather bureau.
Spring poets are the great propagators
of pulmonary complaints.
Spring, ghastly spring!
Even a spring" chicken is a delusion
And a snaie.
If the robin is really a sign of spring
lie ought to be ashamed of himself.
In these latter days, blizzards are the
only genuine "harbingers of pring."
That "tired feeling" incidental to
spring is greatly aggravated by reading
Bpring poetry in one column of a news
paper and the weather report in another.
In the spring a young fellow's fancy
lightly turns of thoughts of cough mix--tnres.
The most effete monarchy of modern
times is the one presided over by the
Frailty ,$thy name is spring.
Spring by any other name would not
l)e nearly so deceptive. .
Possibly it is because spring is the
youth of the year that it is oo disagree
"Sweet spring, full of sun and blow
ing roses" sore throats and blowing
Spring, gentle spring, get a thaw on
yourself. N. Y. Sun.

THE SHIPPING OF ANIMALS.
Cattle on Ocean Voyages to Receive the
Best of Care and Attention.
' The improvement in the arrange
ments made for the protection of ani
mals during the voyage across the At
lantic are said by Mr. Tennan, principal
of the animals division of the beard of
agriculture, to have fairly kept pace
with the increase of the trade. During
the early days, according to the London
News, the losses, owing- to tempestuous
wather, bad ventilation and other
causes, were often of a very serious
character, and in some cases resulted
in the destruction of the entire living
cargo. As experience was gained, how
ever, an, improvement took place, and
since the year 1SS9, when the losses
among cattle amounted to no less than
21 of every thousand that were em
barked, there has been a steady de
crease in the mortality among this class
of animals, until, in 1S93, it was re
duced to three per thousand, and dur
ing the year 1S94 to five per thousand.
Sheep are at all times bad travelers
when compared with cattle, the losses
among them during a long journey be
ing almost always large, and during
the five years in question the average
losses amounted to 28 per thousand.
Notwithstanding the fact, however,
tiiat the importation during 1894 in
creased nearly eight-fold, and leaped
up to upward of 400,000, the losses dur
ing the past year only amounted to 17
Curious Observation of One. Who Has
Much to Do with Animals.
Superintendent Sol Stephan, of the
Cincinnati Zoo, has made all sorts of
curious discoveries in the habits and
characteristics of animals, the latest
of which, says the Enquirer, is thai
wild creatures are mostly left-handed.
Mr. Stephan has been endeavoring to
verify this observation on two parrol.i
lately brought from Mexico. He found
that in grasping a finger offered as a
perch, the parrots almost always put
the left foot forward.
Usually the finger thus offered is that
of the right hand- " But when the left
finger is offered to the parrots, thev
put forward the right foot. There is,
however, apparently a small residuum
of preference for the left foot. This
seems to be due to the fact that men
are usually right-handed and offer the
right hand to the parrot.
The left foot is the one naturally put
forward by the parrot in this case, and
through repetition of this action a
species of left-footedness is induced.
Mr. Stephan's general conclusion is
that there is no evidence that the parrot
is naturally )ef t-footed.
The appearance of that left-footedness
is due entirely to the fact that
those who offer the finger or food to
parrots do so. as a rule, with the right
hand. Repetition of this process makes
the parrot more or less left-handed in
Historical Records of Maryland.
In speaking of the records of the
provincial court of the province of
Maryland, from 1057 to the revolution,
now preserved in Anne Arundel county,
the Baltimore Sun says: "The historical
value of these old records is inestimable.
It is believed that no other state in the
union has such records of family his
tory showing the manner of living
among the people of the colony as far
back as 250 years ago. In the wills,
families can be traced back from father
to son for a century. The court record
books containing inventories of per
sonal estates make a complete exhibit
of the character of household furni
ture, kitchen implements, farm uten
sils, etc., used by the early s ettJers and
their descendants during the first cen
tury and a half of the colony. From
these things we can read much of the
habits and customs of the people." ,
A Heartless Experiment.
The Lancet tells this story to show
the trials of a country doctor in France.
A young physician . settled in a com
mune, whose paupers he attended for
ten dollars per annum. One night,
soon after his arrival at this Eldorado,
he received an urgent summons to visit
a patient who lived at a distance of six
kilometers from the village. On reach
ing the cottage it was then 11 p. m.
he found the doors closed and lights ex
tinguished. In repy to his knocks the
door was opened by a sturdy peasant,
who laughingly informed him that
there was no illness in the house, but
that his wife had wished to see if, when
anyone was ill, he would come if sent
for! The unfortunate medico since
dead from overwork, and probably un
derfeeding remarked: "I could have
felled him to the ground."
An Artistic Compliment.
A hairdresser in Boston numbered
among her patrons many gentlemen of
the medical profession. One day'when
operating upon one of them he broke
forth in great glee: "Vat you'dinlr.

McFarland, a prominent merchant of
Live Oak, Sutter county, Calif., was
taken with a very heavy cold. The
pains in his chest were eo seyere that he
had spasms and. was threatened with
pneumonia. His father gave him sev
eral large doses of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, which broke up the cough and
enred him. Mr. McFarland says when
ever his children have croup he invari
ably gives them Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy and it always cures them. He
considers it the best cough remedy in

"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
goo'ds, but they 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 in favor of 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
merits." 1 . '

one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the foun
dation of the disease, and giving the
patient strength by building up the con
