By far the most destructive of these is Cancer, which finds the greatest number of its victims among the children and grand-children of those whose blood was tainted with this dreadful malady.

AWFULAGONY The Story of a Stricken Woman Whom Doctors Were Not Able to Help Jfcw the Newt, ConnertriUe, Indiana. The story of Mrs. Nellie M. Hed- den, of No. 621 Summit avenue, Con- nersville, lnd., contains an important lesson for many American women who suffer in silence rather than face the ordeal that the usual treatment of their troubles entail. It is a story that rings with honest gratitude and does not tell half the misery that the narrator endured. Other women who are suffering as Mrs. Hedden did will know how to understand and appre ciate much that cannot be told in a newspaper, article.- Mrs. Hedden 's experience is best given in her own words. She says:' "For nearly a year I endured terri ble agony caused by a general break ing down of the nervous system, - fe male weakness and suppression of the periods. I suffered greatly with bear ing down pains and was very weak and short of breath. My circulation was very bad, causing numbness of limbs, dizziness and headache all the time. My heart would sometimes feel as if there was a heavy weight on it. I had never been healthy and strong, so you can readily see that I was in no condition to withstand such a combination of ailments. , "I grew worse very rapidly and all the doctors I tried failed to check my decline. A "friend" of iny- husband told him how much good Dr. Wil Hams' Pink Pills had done his wife so I commenced taking them and can now state tnat they are tbe only re lief I ever had. The first box helped me so much that I was thoroughly convinced of the emcacy of the rem edy. I continued the treatment for several weeks, using six boxes in all. In conclusion 1 will say that it any one, who is suftenng the same as I was, will take Dr. Williams', Pink Pills as directed they will be reward ed." - ' Signed, ELLIE M. HEDDEN.

BRANCH Net Additions) to Farm Resource Be tween 1890 and 190O Waa Greater than Valme of All Faroe Iaveatmenta Fifty Years Ago. Farming Is so vast an Interest that Its current condition cannot be express ed In figures. It Is not capitalized In stocks and bonds, and its values are not quotable from day to day. But any Intelligent farmer can make a compari son of' tbe general state of his indus try with what It was six or eight years ago, and will then realize tbe immense gain that has occurred. In fact, tbe activity among the railways and the rapid growth of foreign exports largely rest on farm production. It is stated by the chief statistician of; the agricultural section of the twelfth census that tbe net additions to farm resources in the ten years be tween 1890 and 1900 exceed the value of all farm investments in 1850. As the writer referred to puts the case: The Increased wealth of our farmers. as the result of their last ten years' la bor, equals tbe farm wealth of the na tion reported as the outcome of their toil and economies from the settlement at Jamestown to the middle of the nine teenth century." Advances on the stock exchange fade into a small' affair be side a colossal increment like that. In the United States to-day there are at least 5,700,000 farms, or about one to every thirteen inhabitants. - In 1850 the number was 1,149,073. In ten years the number has increased 1,150,000, and In the same time farm -wealth has ex panded by not less than $6,500,000,000. In the'twelve adjacent States of Illi nois, Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North Da kota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kan sas the number of farms has increased since 1890 from 1,923,822" to 2,220,000. These States added ?2,500,000,000 to their farm wealth between 1880 and 1890, and a still larger sum In the last ten years. 1 .v " The government is dot unmindful of the vast import of agriculture. Con gress has endowed agricultural col leges in every State and Territory. These Institutions represent a value of $53,000,000, and their Income is $6, 000,000. Their students last year num bered 31,658. The annual national ap propriation for experiment stations Is $789,000. - '" When American farmers note what Is going on In intensive farming. Irri gation, cattle-raising, improvements and preservation of products, manage ment of soils, betterment of facilities to reach markets and new uses for waste products, they will see that their Industry is truly the most expansive as well as the greatest. Though the pop ulation of the country should continue to double, inside of forty years, there can be no doubt that the farmers of this country, the most scientific and effect ive in the world, will meet all demands and be the main reliance for foreign nations when . their own production runs short.

IMPOSSIBLE AT THE PRICE, Artiatic Idea Concerning; the Value of . a Picture. - A certain parvenu of great wealth has hanging in his drawing room large and hideous daub in oils which some dealer in Paris induced him to buy.

Paid 2,000 for it In Paris and got a great bar gain. P " (naming-an eminent art ist) "says It is worth 10,000." A few days since this gentleman was lunching at the Artists Club when the cat came out of the bag. Some one said: . - ---": 'P- , old Centpercent says that you have appraised that frightful night mare of his at 10,000. . It It right?" The artist answered smilingly. "I will tell you how that happened. He asked me to dinner one day, and after, we left the table took me to see the picture and told the usual story, Then," turning abruptly, he asked " 'How much is that painting worth T " 'Why," Mr. Centpercent, said I, really would not like to place a value upon it.' r "WelL I'll put It differently,' said he, 'How much would yon charge for such a picture r : , - ; -, - ", 'I don't mind saying,',! answered, Hhat I would not paint such a, picture for 10,000.'

An officer of the: Bengal Lancers, who was seized by a tigress, owed his ecape to a curious accident The ti gress seized him by the breast of his coat and shook him till he became un conscious. On recovering he heard strange noise at a little distance, as if somebody was sneezing violently. was the tigress herself. He . slowly turned round and gave a furtive glance in that direction. - " - - , - He could hardly believe .his eyes. There was the tigress slinking off with her tall very much between her legs and sneezing most violently and mak ing the most piteous grimaces.' , The truth dawned upon him like a fiasn of lightning. In the operation of shaking him his snuffbox had flown open from his waistcoat pocket, and the tigress had received the contents thereof full in her face. Cornhill Magazine.
