A Sew Treatment.
Another mode of treating the drink
habit is said to be in successful opera
tion in Paris where three physicians
Drs. Bapelier, Thehanet and Broca
announce that thej have discovered a
new serum. Of 57 cases treated, 83
were cured and 15 were improved, only
10 failing to show improvement. The
serum is obtained from hoises that
have been dosed with alcohol until
their systems are drenched with the
poison. When administered to pa
tients' the serum revives natural repug
nance to alcohol, which continued use
has broken down.
How strange it is that a severe mas

Eczema is caused by an acid humor in
the blood coming in contact with the
skin and producing trreat redness and in
flammation ; little pustular eruptions form
sad discharge a tbin, sticlty fluid, wcicn
dries and scales off ; sometimes the skin is
hard, dry and fissured. Eczema in any
form is a tormenting, stubborn disease,
and the itching and burning at times are
almost unbearable ; the acid burning
humor seems to ooze out and set the skin
on fire. Salves, washes nor other exter
nal applications do any real good, for as
long as the poison remains in the blood
it will keep the skin irritated.

"Unite! in Marriaue" Fetter than
"the Holy Bond.4 of Matrimony."
We read with interest that certain
young and hopeful persons are to be
"united ir the holy bonds of taaari
mouy," and this not altogether novel
announcement suggests the influence
of the tnnrriagtf ceremony upon the use
of language. Trains start at 12 o'clock,
and then somebody is said to be mar
ried at that hour, but, as a rule, though
it may be 12 when the cars start, it is
"high noon" when the clergyman
makes his declaration tir ami about the
waiting couple. Nobody has yet ox
plained what makes the noon high."
but the fact is accepted as an .incident
f the occasion. Just so, while now
aud then some people arc married," it
is expected of them either that they
shall be "1111110(1 In marriage" or in the
"holy bonds of matrimony" or else be
"jojued in wedlock." Aud weddings
are not alone iu their stilted phraseol
ogy. Take funerals.
Generally we are told that the "sol
emn burial service" of the Kpiscopal
church was used. This is always a re
lief. Friends might have selected the
humorous service of some other church
or have had service for baptisms of in
fants, and, when it is made clear that
they had a solemn and a burial service
at a funeral you realize that they have,
done the proper thing by the one who
has "passed away."
That phrase recalls the story they tell
of the late aud much-estcOnied Judge
Pardee, of the Supreme Court and of
Hartford. Some lawyer, speaking of
in expected witness, said he had passed
away. "Died, sir," said the judge. "In
this court people die, not pass away."
Similarly, meetings are "holdeu" and
wills are "proven," and people who use !
those terms seem to think that addi- j
tional weight is given thereby to the
statements they have to make. The
fact is that the simplest language Is

Untdo.-s All C.thera in This Particular
Form of Decoration.
Of all the cities of the world the rich
est iu monuments is probably Berlin,
even now, and if there is another city
which can boast of more mouuments
than Berlin's sixty-three it is destined
to be distanced by the German capital
within a few years. For wheu the
Avenue of Victory shall have been
adorned with all the statues iu contem
plation aud when the monuments to
Bismarck, You Moltke and the Emper
or Frederick shall have been completed,
the "Athens by the Spree," as the Ber
liners lots to call their city,- will pos
sess not far from 100 monuments to de-
eased worthies. As might be expect
d, the names on some of the monu
ments would have fallen into oblivion
jut for them. A few of the really great
men have two monuments apiece, and
one of them, Frederick the Great, is
tonored with three monuments in dif
ferent parts of the city.
It Is worthy of note that the scientist
Helmholtz though recently dead, has
already had two statues erected in his
honor, one in front of the university,
:he other on the Potsdam bridge. In
view of the military traditions of Prus
sia, it Is rather surprising that of the
completed monuments thirty-two are
of civilians aud only twenty-nine of
military men. The remaining two are
of women. Queen Louise and Empress
Augusta. Schiller was the first civil
ian to obtain a monument. An inter
esting statue !s that of .lahn, the father
of turning and turnvereins. The figure
stands or a mound, the stone of which
were sent from all parts of Germany,

Among the others to whom Berlin
has erected monuments are Goethe, Lu
ther, the two Humboldts, Lessing, the
scientists Siemens, Gauss and Roent

The New Chief Justice of the Ohio Cir
cuit Courts.
Judge Silas Marion Douglass, the
new Chief Justice of the Circuit Courts
of Ohio, has been a lawyer but seven
teen years and has attained to his pres
ent eminence upon stepping stones laid
by his own efforts. A farmer boy until
he was 21, he began at that age to
teach in country schools, paying for his
college education with the money thus
earned. In 1883 he was graduated
from the Cincinnati Law School, and
in the same year he opened an office
in Mansfield, Ohio. He was elected
Mayor, then City Solicitor, and then
Circuit Judge. The new Chief Justi- e
is a native of Richland County, aud ic
47 years old.
Not Ashamed to Own It.
Judge Ed Jared, in his recent experi

How They Pat Out Fires in Korea.
A tire in Korea is considered of slighi
jonsequence, unless a whole streei
should happen to be threatened. Thert
Is very little in a Korean house that car
burn, except sliding doors and win
lows, and a few articles of furniture
and clothing.
Generally the unlucky owner whose
house catches fire endeavors to pull 11
down: that is. after. he has carried intt
the street whatever property he cares
to save. When several houses at onct
are in danger the King sends out a
hundred or so soldiers, who calmly
view the bonfire, and offer help, if nec
essary. There Is no water to work
with, so these helpers generally bring
along with them a ship's anchor, fas
tened to a long, thick rope; this anchot
they fix to the burning beam, then it is

Koreans climb up on their roofs, and
stand in rows upon the upper edges ol
the structure. You will wonder what
the object of this strange proceeding
may be. Now the men quickly strir.
off their coats and the women follow
suit with their large cloaks. These thej
wave rapidly together, in order tc
create a strong counter breeze to th
one blowing.
One can almost imagine the Koreans
to be strange birds, flapping their wings
preparatory to taking their flight Into
the upper regions. While these 5dd
proceedings are going on, prayers ar
offered to the spirit of the fire, as well
as to that of the wind.
A Gentle Suggestion.
The neighbors on both side had come
over in Simpson's front yard, and were
making remarks about passers-by and
carrying on a desultory conversation.
"The cause of the present hard
times," suddenly said Simpson loudly,
"is caused by women knocking men out
of employment in shops, factories,
stores, etc. When you stop and con
sider the thing, one can't help but won
der why they should be big enough
fools to do this."
"Probably it's because they becomt
tired waiting for men to do something,"
gently suggested Mrs. Simpson.

A Hypnotic Cure.
A New Haven clergyman seriouslj
proposes to cure boys of the cigarettt
habit by hypnotism. He has been a
deep student of psychological problems
and has conducted a number of experi
ments in the laboratories of Yale Uni

weak-minded from excessive smoking
and put him under hypnotic influence.
Then a strong lecture on the evils ol
the boy's habit followed. It Is claimed
that the subject Is permanently cured.
Mushroom Crop.
The annual crop of mushrooms In
France is valued at $2,000,000, and ther
are sixty wholesale firms in Paris deal

rooms are grown, and about 300 person

Fellow Student of the Chinese Emperor
Visit. San Francisco.
Leung Kal Tin. a fellow-student of
Emperor Kwang Hsu of China, is In
San Francisco. Even to see the Em
peror Is a rare privilege, denied the
great majority of the almond-eyed. The
fortunate Celestial who rubs elbows
with his majesty is singularly honored
by his countrymen. But he who breaks
through the sacred inner circle and
lives in dsily communication with the
Emperor ijf China is almost a divinity
to the h&li a thousand million less for
tunate subjects.
Such a dignitary is Leung Kal Tin.
who owea the proud privilege of hll
personal communication with the Em
peror Kwang Hsu to the fact that he
is a pupil of Kang Yu Wei, greatest of
Chinese scholars and reformers. It was
Kang Yu Wei who first started the re
form bee buzzing in the royal bonnet.
The young Emperor finally lent a list
ening ear to the teachings of Kang Yu
Wei. He became a pupil of that great
teacher. This naturally made the Em
peror eager to meet the most brilliant
scholars of Kang Yu Wei. Among the
young men brought Into the royal pres
ence were Leung Chi Tso and Leung
Kal Tin. Leung Kal Tin was the young
er brother, but equally clever for his
years, and an ardent reformer.
When jealousy made It imparatlv
that the young Emperor have less fre
quent counsels with Kang Yu Wei It
was decided to confine their Intercourse
to letters and to have these missives
carried to and fro by some trusted
friend of reform. Leung Kal Tin was
one of those who bravely offered his
services for this delicate and danger
ous task.
When the Emperor saw that his re
formers had endangered his own safe
ty and that of his advisers, and that
matters were nearing a crisis, he sent
a secret message to Kwang Yu Wei, In
forming him of the peril that was
threatening all reformers. He bade
them fly at once.
Six of the most promising advocates
of reform were butchered at the insti
gation of the Empress Dowager before
they could make their escape, but Kang
Yu Wei, Leung Kal Tin, Leung Chi
Tso, and several others managed to es
Leung Kal Tin came to the Pacific
coast to carry the doctrine of reform
to every city and village where his
brother Chinese congregate. In San
Francisco there are an especially large
number of progressive Chinese, who
believe that the light of modern civili
zation should penetrate the gloom of
China. Their battle cry Is: "Give back
the throne to the young Emperor
Kwang Hsu." They would have the
Empress Dowager divested of every
vestige of power.
Leung Kai Tin. though still In his
twenties, is a man of marvelous ability.
He is a scholar, not only learned in the
musty philosophy of the Orient, but
well versed In the history of other na
tions and what has made their success.
He is an eloquent speaker, and his lec
tures to his countrymen In the United
States have stirred them greatly.
Four Thousand in a Bunch on Bach
Side of the Head.
Whoever thinks the male the supe
rior animal finds no rest for the sole
sf his foot in the contemplation of what
we, in the sublimity of our self-con-selt,
call "the lower animals." In our
general ignorance of the housefly we
:lo not know just how foolish and no
account the male is, but we may rea
sonably infer that he is as markedly
Jeficient as usual, seeing that his eyes
ire so close together that they touch
sach other. That's always a bad sign,
if you see anybody with eyes close to
gether you are entitled to think little
of his intelligence.
The fly has two sorts of eyes, the big
compound one, 4,000 in a bunch on
each side of the head, for knocking
about in daylight, and there are simple
eyes on the top of the head for use in
a poor light, sewing aud fine print. Be
fore going into ecstasies of admiration
over the creature that has 4,000 eyes on
each side of its head it might be well
to remember that they are not of much
account. In case of old flies kept over
winter the compound eyes cave In and
get broken, yet the fly seems to get
along and find food. One kind gentle
man varnished over the simple eyes
and plucked off the wings of some
flies. He found that he might hold a
candle close enough to burn the com
pound eye.s of the fly before It had a
suspicion that anything out of the com
mon was going on. In daylight he took
a knitting needle and brought It up In
front of the fly close enough to touch
his antennae before It dodged. If the
knitting needle was brought up on one
side Mr. Fly picked up his sticking
plasters quite lively. Alnslee's Maga

A Distressing; Condition in Which Many
American People Are Involved The
Only Way to Alleviate It.
From the Mountaineer, Walhalla, N. Dakota.
The remorse of a guilty stomach is
what a veiy large majority of the peo
ple of this nation are suffering with to
day. It is a well kuown fact that dys
pepsia is a characteristic American dis
ease and it is frequently stated that
"we are a nation of dyspeptics."
It is a distressing ailment and be
cause of its many forms is difficult to
treat. Sometimes it is the result of
improper modes of eating, improper
food or mental worry and exhaustion;
then again it may be sort of a depressed
condition of the body and treatment
should be directed to the restoration of
the nealth, without special attention to
the stomach. In other instances, the
disease is evidently the result of in
flammation of the stomach.
Anyone of these conditions produce
a lack of vitality in the system, by
causing the blood to loee its life sus
taining elements. The blood is the
vital element in our lives and should
be carefully nurtured. Restore the blood
to its proper condition, dyspepsia will
vanish and perfect health follow.
For example, in the county of Pem
bina, North Dakota, a few miles from
Walhalla, resides Mr. Ernest Snider;
a man of sterling integrity, whose
veracity cannot be doubted. He was
formerly a resident of Landsdowne,
Ont.. but removed to the West and is
now a posperuus farmer.
For three years he as been unable to
do his work because he was ill with
dyspepsia. "I became, Beriously ill
about three years ago," he says, and
consulted a doctor who gave me some
medicine for indigestion. I continued
to grow worse aud eeveral physicians
were called at intervals who gave me
I temporary relief, but the disease re
i turned with all its accustomed severity.
"The distress after eating made me
j dread meal time. At times I became
j so dizzy as tobe unable to stand. I had
; sour stomach, heartburn, palpitation
of heait, and weak nerves. The doc
tors disagreed as to the nature of my
disease, but all agreed that the stomach
was affected. I suffered intensely an j
life was a misery.
"I tried several well-known reme
dies, but was not benefited.
"I read in tne newspapers articles
regarding the wonderful curative pow
ers of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, and finally alter some
urging on the part of a friend, I con
cluded to try tbe pills. I purchased
six boxes. This was five months ago.
"I had not taken all of the first box
before I felt much relief, I continued
taking the pills, and after using four
boxes I was cured. I have none of
those distressing symptoms now and
am completely restored to health, and
can do as much work as any of the
laborers on my farm. I owe my restor-
atiu to health
to Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People and galdly give
imy testimonial, hoping it may prove
' beneficial to some persons similarly
i affected."
I 0 By restoring to the blood the requis
ite constituents of life, Dr. Williams'
Pink PiJIs for Pale People renew the
i nerve force and enables the stomach to
' promptly and properly assimilate the
I -food, thus speedily and permanently
' curing the dyspeptic. These pills are
i a specific for all diseases having their
origin in impoverished blood or disor
i dered nerves. They contain every ele
; ment requisite to general nutrition, to
; restore strength to the weak, good
; health to the ailing. Physicians pre
.scribe them, druggists recommend
j them and everywhere the people use
j them.

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 pro

remedies, and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it incurable.
