NOT A SICK DAY
For Over Thirty Years!
KESULT OF USING
"Ayer's Calliartii: Pills for over thirty
years have kept me in j?ol health,
never having hail a sick lay in all that
time. Before I was twenty I suffered
almost continually as a result of con
stipation from lyiepsia, headaches,
neuraljria, or boils ami other eruptive
diseases. When I iieuame convinced
that nine-tenths of my troubles were
caused by constipation, I began the use
of Ayer's Pills, with the most satisfac
tory results, never having a single
attack that did not readily yield to this
remedy. My wife, who had been an
invalid for years, also began to us
Ayer's Pills, and her health was quickly
restored. With my children I had no
ticed that nearly all their ailments were
preceded Ty constipation, and I soon
had the pleasure of knowing that with
children as with parents, Ayer's Pills,
if taken in season, avert all danger of
sickness." H. Wkttstein, Bvron, 111.

A HOUSEHOLD WORD.
Ludicrous liltmiler Which Was Made by
a Prosilin Officer.
The Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Timcs-IIcrahl relates a laugh
able incident in the career of Mr. Tars

lit was unseated by the housr. The
oeeurronef, it should be explained, tool;
place .some years ago, w hen Mr. Tarsney
was not so well known he is at pres
ent. It was in th? midst of a political cam
paign, and Mr. Tnrsuey, who had gone
. to Xew York state in the service of his
party, was. announced to speak in a
country town. The chairman of the
meeting, a local '-clcbrity, was proierly
minded to give the gentleman from Mis
souri a handsome reception.
"Ladies ami gentlemen." he said, "we
have with us to-i: ight. one of the r-reat-tsl
statesmen of tie great west, nil ora
tor fiime.il throughout the Mississippi
valley, n gentleman whose name is to
you a household word. Permit me to
introduce to you Mr. Jlr. "
Here the flow of his eloquence was
cheeked, and leaning towai-d the orator
of the evenii'g. he whispered:
'What did you say your narue was?"
"Tarsney, of Missouri," whispered the
"Fellow-citizens," resumed the chair
man, "it is my proud pleasure to intro
duce to you Mr. Larceny, of Missouri."
DOG BURIES A CAT.
A l.ittle l'sycholosrical Speculation Con
cerning the Incident.
A dog and a cat, belonging to the same
master, were the best friends in the
world, and spent their time in frolicking
together. One day, while playing as
usual, the cat died suddenly, falling .1
the dog's feet. The lattery at first, did
not, realize what had happens, but
continued his play, pullicg-. pushing
and caressing his companion, but with
evident astonishment at her inertness.
After .some time he appeared to under
stand the situation, and his grief found
vent in prolonged howls. Presently he
was seized with the idea of burying the
cat. He pulled her into the garden,
where he soon dug a hole with his paws,
rand put in the l-orty of his former com
panion. He then refilled the hole with
dirt, and, stretching himself out on the
grave, resumed his mournful howling.
The idea of burying the cat was ex
i raordinary. Whence eame the thought
fulness? Could it. be imitation, or,
which is a better explanation, did the
dog have a vague idea of concealing the
event which might be imputed to hiin?
I5ut then it would seem unreasonable
for him to call -attention to the fact
by installing himself on the grave and
howling. However, even human crim
inals are, sometimes equally incon
sistent. It is difficult to form an exact
idea of what gave rise to the dog's con
duct in this case. , ',

The Song Tint Keitrhe Oar Hearts Is
"My Old Kentucky Home."
There is one -song in the Knglish lan
guage that, perhaps, comes closier to the
hearts of Americans, particularly if
they are far from home and kmsmen.
! than any other. That sontr is "MV Old
Kentucky Home." The simple, tender
story it tells and its irresistible tnelody
nre familiar to nearly every one. It
has been sung by noted singers in every
c ivilized country on the globe, and has
been eulogized by authors and critic
.f classical taste; yet its author,
.Stephen Foster, died unhonored and
unsung, and unconscious of the master
ly work he had wrought. Like nearly
all other great artists, however. Foster's
leeompense eame after he was dead,
and it is safe to say that "My Old Ken
tucky Home" and its writer's name wi II
live so long as human (sentiment and
love of home endure.
Those Americans who were present at
a Palti concert, in the Grand onem
house of Paris in the early seventies are,
many of them, old men and women
row, but they can still vividly recall
the indescribable scene when the diva
apienred in response to an encore and
sang, as only Patti could sing, this
sweet, simple ballad. It was entirely
unexpected, and before they were
aware strong men were weeping and
women were hysterically giving vent
to emotions they did not try to control.
t its conclusion the great singer was
literally showered with flowers ami
erwtly gifts. One rich American threw
a roll of bills over 1he footlights that "
was said to contain a sum of money up
in the thousands. The demonstration
was jcrhaps the most magnificent ever
accorded a suitor for pubiic favor.
Apropos of all this, the following
from the Philadelphia Call illustrates
the wonderful charm the song still
A street singer stopped to sing the
other night in front of a well-known
hotel. He was an old chap, blind of
one eye. and infirm, but gifted with the
remnant of what w as once a very sweet
tenor voice. With him as attendant
and guide was his daughter, a child of
sunny Italy, sun-brow ucd. large-eyed
and attractive in her picturesque gjrb.
The old fellow sang first that dittv of
the streets: "Just Tel Them That. You
Saw Me." provoking little attention.
Then he began to sing in his tremulous,
quavering voice an old favorite. As
he proceeded t he windows of the hotel
were raised one by one and guests
looked out with sympathetic eves.
Coins showered down to the picturesque
little maid, who circulated about with
her tambourine, . collec ting. Men
strolled out of the cafe and gathered on
the stents, listening with interest. One
old fellow, a tall, soldierly-looking man,
with flashing dark eyes and an air that
was unmistakably southern, gave the
child a note with the remark: "It did
my heart a dollar's worth of good."
When the last strain of the touching
old melody died away everybody pres
ent wore that dreamy look "that tells of
old memories stirred and refreshed.
