SADLY MISTAKEN WOMEN-
The Great Cause of Female Unhappi-
nein and JLoas of Attractiveness
The question is often asked, why
are the "women of to-day so delicate,
so feeble? "Why do they fade so
quickly, lose their color, and become
prematurely old? Why do they suf
fer such pains and endure so much
silent agony? There are, doubtless,
many reasons, but they are all com
bined in the single word Weakness.
When we stop to calmly think of the
amount of misery that is endured by
t li e women o l
America at this

L. Nicholas, resid-
ding at Phenix, 11.
mes. Nicholas. 1., is a lineal de
scendant of the gallant General, Na
thaniel Greene. Blessed with a good
constitution, she hardly knew what
sickness or pain were" until a few
years ago. Her duties called her up
and down stairs (that bane of wom
ankind) very frequently, and she be
gan to notice that her breath was
growing shorter. This was followed
by pains in the back, tired feeling, a
sense of bearing down and frequent
faintness. But Mrs. Nicholas had
the plucky blood of her ancestor in
her veins and would not give up.
Ihere came a day, however, when
she was forced to do so. We give the
rest in licr cwn words. In convers
ing with the writer she said :
" 1 cannot describe how sich I was,
I had sharp pains shooting through
my chest; it was almost impossible
to drawa single breath, and my limbs
were swollen almost to bursting. I
consulted three doctors, two of whom

Bleep in my cnair. bestored.
When I was in this hopeless condi
tion, my son, Lafayette G. Nicholas,
of Providence, came to see me. Sev
eral years before he had been sick,
but under the direction of Dr. George
D. Wilcox, of Providence, he had re
covered, lie insisted that I should
employ the same means he had used
so successfully, and as a last resort I
consented to do so. In a short time
I began to grow better; the swelling
decreased, and finally disappeared;
I regained my breath, then my health,
then my strength, and I owe my life
to-day to that grand medicine, Iltint's
Remedy, which alone was able to
save me. This was the medicine
which, administered by Dr. Wilcox,
restored my son and rescued me from
the grave. I know it is pure, simple
and good, and I believe it is the only
remedy that will certainly regulate
and cure the many troubles of wom
en and restore them to health, beauty

still they take no steps to check them.

Napoleon claimed that with the
command of the straits of Dover
for twenty-four hours he could de
stroy the British empire. "With
this view he caused an immense
army and flotilla to be assembled
at Boulogne and the neighboring
ports and he ordered the French
fleet to advance on the British
channel, but with the decisive bat
tle of Trafalgar all his hopes in
that direction were scattered to
the winds. Numerous pamphlets
have been written in later years
that claim that owing to the intro
duction of steam and improved
ordnance it would be far easier
now a-days for the French to ef
fect a landing on the English
shorce if they could only break
through or evade the British fleet,
which is naturally considered the
first and main line of the defense.
The recent brilliant maneuvers of
admiral Fremautle in eluding ad
miral Hewitt's far superior forces
and gaining access to the Thames
and Mersey have not been fully
reported by telegraph, but the
circumstances must have produced
the greatest consternation in Brit
ish naval and military circles.
From the meager reports it would
appear that Fremantle started
from Falmouth and passed the
straits or Dover in the night time
without being discovered by the
large fleet gathered around Dover
under Hewitt's command. If this
should be the case there must have
been some terrible blundering on
the partof the defense, as thestraits
are a mere twenty miles across,
and that space ought to have been
heavily patroled by the numerous
fleet of torpedo boats that were at
tached to the command. As it
was, by the dawn of day Freman
tle had command of the Thames
and would have ransomed London
and destroyed the famous arsenal
of Woolwich before Hewitt made
his appearanco and captured the
small attacking fleet. In such a
case, with another small fleet at
Cherbourg and a sufficiency of
light transports, a hundred thou
sand French troops might have
been lauded on England's south
coast within twenty-four hours.
Gould Carry a Cow.
"One of the most remarkal.lolu
stances of physical training tin:- 1
ever knew occurred m Pike coun
ty," says a contributor to the Grif
fin, Ga., ynrji. "There was a
farmer who was a friend of mine
near Hollonville, who owned a
very fine cow which had a most
promising heifer call. The cow
died while the calf was very
young, and the calf, us the saying
goes, had to be raised by hand,
and, of coutse, as the farmer's
wife Hook a hand' in its nurture
and admonition, when the heifer
grew to maturity, 'she was a
daisy.' But let me go back to
the subject of physical training.
While the poor little orphan heifer
was passing through its first stages
of grief for the irreparable loss of
her kind and tender mother, she
would seek sympathy from every
source, and earty every morning
when my farmer friend would rise
to feed his stock the little orphan
would meet him at the door as ho
came out and rub up against him
and hold up her little black nose
to be caressed, and the farmer,
touched bv these demonstrations
of affection, and being a kind
hearted man, he overflowed
with sympathy for the mother
less calf, and with tears in his eyes
he took it up under his arm and
carried it with him to the lot and
led the stock, and then would car
ry the calf back to the house. In
the meantime the farmer's wife
had prepared food for the calf, and
then would feed it. Every morn
ing this was repeated until it be
came a confirmed habit of the
farmer to carry the calf to the lot
and then back to the house to be
fed, and it became a part of the
calfs existence, and it would not
cat at all without this treatment.
And thus it went on; years passed,
and the heifer grew to be a large
cow weighing 800 pounds, and her
growth was so gradual that it was
imperceptible to the fanner, as he
had accustomed himself to carry
the daily increasing weight, and it
had never occurred to him that
there was any more effort neces
sary to carry the full-grown cow
than there W-is to carry her a little,
motherless, orphan heifer. Yet,
strange to say, that if the farmer
was called on to raise a weight of
200 pounds he couiu not do it, but
an 800-pound cow was an easy
load, simply because his physical
training was in that line."
A Wonderful Pish.
Under this caption the Sailor's
Magazine for August tells of a
fish found in Uoose .Lake, Uregon,
which fills itself with air until it
becomes a round ball and in this
shape it goes bobbing about on
the surface ot the water like an
animated soap bubble. Several
weeks ago, says the veracious nar
rator, a hunter saw a crane swal
low one of these fish when in its
normal condition, but before the
crane had erot more than fifty feet
up above the lake the fish had
taken enough air to explode the
crane, which blew uo and burst
into atoms with a report as loud
as a gun. The hsh came lightly
down on the water, no worse off
for its short ride in the air.
This vara, savs the jiraus. is
something like the port admiral
used to smn about a famous kind
of bread which is made in the Gre
cian archipelago, of flour made
like that of which maccarroni is
made. It is baked in tin wafers,
as hard as flint. When it is to be
used a biscuit is dipped in boiling
water till soft, then a ouill is in
serted in the edge and a loaf of
bread is blown up, which is the
best in the world, healthv and
nourishing. On one occasion the
cook nut some of this bread in a
duff and tied the string of the duff
bag too tight. The pudding ex
ploded, takimr off the roof of the
galley and knocking the pots to
pieces. A piece of the pot lid
hit the cook in the eye and blind
ed him for life.
