Sir Edwin Arnold Could Fill an Edi
torial rage with Baa.
Sir Edwin Arnold, whose recent long
illness has left him totally blind, was
one of the most prolific writers in Eng
land. He was for years connected with
the London Telegraph, and It is said
in the office that he has written over
10,000 leaders for the paper, in addition
to which vast Journalistic output he
has contrived to write some twenty or
thirty volumes of poetry and literature
and to visit all parts of the world. It
Excess of Women in Norway.
In consequence of emigration.
there is a greater preponderance of
women in Norway than in almost any
other country ih Europe. The. cen

excess of women over men of almost
70,000, while in 1876 this excess
amounted to only 43,000.

"Oh, the papers all said he was a
great hand at watering stock, but I
found he couldn't w6rk the pump five
minutes without lameing his arm. "
Sir Edwin became connected with the
"Largest Circulation." That such a
man would very soon get to the head
of affairs was a foregone conclusion.
As an editor he was loved and respect
ed by all who had to deal with him,
for while his knowledge Is prodigious
and his Judgment unrivaled his cour
tesy Is unfailing.
In one respect Sir Edwin Arnold will
suffer less In his affliction than many
might, for his memory is so prodigious
that though reading may be denied hinv
he need never lack the delights of lit
erature. A striking Instance of Sir Ed
win's extraordinary power In this di
rection has been recorded by Major.
Pond In his recent book in connection
with the visit paid by Sir Edwin to
Walt Whitman. -The American poet
had presented him with a volume of
his "Leaves of Grass," and Major Pond
In the presence of both was reading
aloud a random line, whereupon Sir
Edwin stopped him, observing, "Let
me go on from there," saying which he
took up the lines and without a break
recited the whole poem. "Try me any
where else,"' he said at tbe end, and.
Major Pond complying, Sir Edwin
capped every line he named without a
break and showed his perfect familiar
ity with the book from end to end. No
wonder that Walt Whitman was ' de
lighted with such a signal compliment
from his fellow bard.

ways my luck to be too late. After
the second week I began to answer any
kind of an advertisement of help want
ed. Being a stranger In the city I had
difficulty in looking up places, and 1
was slow In getting to addresses be
cause I did not want to, spend any
money for car fare. When I arrived
here I had less than $30, and the little
pile was growing smaller day by day.
and by the end of March our money
was about gone.
Now I'll tell you about the dog. He
is one that my wife raised from a pup
py. I wanted to sell him to a friend
in St Louis when we left, but The wife
wouldn't listen to it. She said she
wouldn't come to -Chicago unless Flash
came with her. He is a pedigreed fox
and Is worth $25 of anybody's money.
It was election day, tbe 2d of April
I will never forget It that my wife
tied a blue ribbon round the dog's neck
and told me to take him out and sell
him. We were flat broke - and she
thought I could get at least $10 for the
dog. Sbe cried a little when I left
home, and it seemed as If the dog knew
what was going on. ' I brought him
down to Madison and Dearborn streets,
and I wasn't there two hours before I
sold him. He is such a prettily marked
little fellow that everybody who pass
ed stopped to look at him. - I set a
price of $10 on him, because I knew
nobody "would pay more than that
More than fifty persons asked me the
price and when I would tell them they
would walk away, saying, 'he's a nice
dog, but I don't care to pay that much.'
I finally came down to $5. because the
wife was sick and In need of medicine.
and I thought best to get It as soon as
possible. A woman with gold-bowed
spectacles bought him and . took him
home. I didn't ask her where she liv
ed, and I don't know to this day.
"The second day after that the dog
returned home. Where he came from
or how he got back I don't know. My
wife was so glad to see him that she
forgot her sickness for awhile.' She
was fondling the dog and talking baby
talk to him .when the thought occur
red to me to take him out and sell him
again. 'Maybe he'll run away from his
next master and come back : to us
again', I said to the wife, and we both
laughed heartily. I took the dog down
town in the afternoon and had no' trou
ble in selling him again for $5. - The
next morning before we were up he
was back at the little flat on Center
avenne. He seemed to understand why.
he was being sold, and he expressed
his approval of the scheme by laugh
ing and talking." . That may sound
strange to some people who do not un
derstand dogs, but it is a fact that dbgs
laugh and talk just the same as human
During the month of April I sold the
dog seven times, getting $3 for him
each time. If It hadn't been for him
we certainly would have been com-
pelled to apply to the county agent for
relief. The wife was In need of medi
cal attention,, and it Is probable she
would have had to go to the poorhouse.
The $35 I got for the dog paid the rent
and all other expenses, besides buying
a pair of shoes for me. I got a posi

will have smooth sailing from now on.

The Trees of Paris. : -
Paris Is probably the only city in the
world which has trees that bloom twice
a year habitually. These are the horse
chestnuts. There are seventeen thou
sand of them planted in the squares and
boulevards, and twenty-six' thousand
buttonwoods. The trees Of Paris are
numbered, just like the people, the
cabs, the animals, the lampposts and
the matches. These horse chestnuts
have only been doing this trick for
about five years, and only some of them
have made a practice of it. These die.
or apparently die. In the latter part of
July, and all the leaves fall off. A
month or so afterward they all come
out into flower again and little green
leaves shoot forth continually until
they are nipped by the first frost There
is a reason for this, and the scientists
worked over, the matter for a long
time to be able to explain It Briefly
and unscientificallythe trees lose their
leaves because they are attacked by a
little fungus which is blown upon them
by the wind; then," being still full of
sap, they start to put forth leaves all
over again. - ; i

A MONTANA GIRL
She Was Pale and Bloodless, But
Now Has a Good Complexion.
Her Ailments Gone.
From the Pioneer Press, Su Paul, Minn.
Prom Florence, Ravalli county,
Mont., comes a cheerfuL letter, the
writer of which is willing to tell how
she obtained the rich glow of health
that thousands of women are envious
to possess." Before she found : the
right remedy she was in that pale,
emaciated condition which doctors
call anaemic, and which, if neglect
ed, inevitably means early death.
Miss : May Smith, whose address is
given in the first words of this ar
ticle, says: ;
About five years ago I became ill
without apparant cause and I grew
worse until I was completely run
down.-. The least exertion would
bring on a very severe pain in the pit
of my stomach. At other times I
would have a pain in my head, some
thing like neuralgia. ' My kidneys
were very weak and my limbs always
felt tired. I was troubled, with short
ness of breath and I had a pale, blood
less appearance. There was smoth
ering sensation about : my heart,
which would beat heavily, with fits of
palpitation. For - three years I was
under, the care of two doctors, neither
of whom seemed to know the nature
of my trouble. They treated me for
dyspepsia, ulceration of the stomach,
gastritus and neuralgia, but without
good results. :
."Two years ago, when I saw an ad
vertisement in a St. Paul paper of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
