strengthened, and the bowels regulated,
by taking Ayer's Pills. These Pills are
purely vegetable in their composition.
They contain neither calomel nor any
other dangerous drug, and may bo taken
with perfect safety by persons of all ages.
I was a great sufferer from Dyspepsia
and Consignation. I had no annetite.
and was constantly afflicted with Head
ache and Dizziness. I consulted our
family doctor, who prescribed for me, at
various times, without affording more
than temporary relief. I finally com
menced taking Ayer's Pills. In a short
time my digestion and appetite
my bowels wero regulated, and, by the
time I finished two boxes of these Pills
my tendency to headaches had disap
peared, and I became strong and well.
Darius M. Logan, Wilmington, Del.
I was troubled, for over a year, with
Lo3S of Appetite, and General Debility.
I commenced taking Ayer's Pills, and,
before finishing half a box of this medi
cine, my appetite and strength were re
stored. 0. O. Clark, Danbury, Conn.
Ayer's Pills are the best medicine
known to mo for regulating the bowels,
andfor all diseases caused bya disordered
Stomach and Liver. I suffered for over
three years with Headache, Indigestion,
and Constipation. I had no appetite, and
n as weak and nervous most of the time.
three boxes of Aver's Pills, and at the
same time dieting myself, I wa3 com
pletely cured. My digestive organs are
now in good order, and I am in perfect
health. P. Lockwood, Topeka, Hans.
Ayer's Pills have benefited me wonder
fully. For months I suffered from Indi

every morning. After taking one box

I was cured of the Piles by the use of

of that painful disorder,-but give me in

A Man Who Says It is. Wot the First
Law of Nature.
Pittsburg Chronicle Telegraph.
"After all, self-preservation is
the first law of nature."
"Well, isn't it?"
"It's generally the first instinct
of a coward."
"Don't you admit that the feel
ing is implanted by nature in man
to look first to his own safety in
"Yes I do, and it's just that
blind, unreasoning feeling that he
shares with the lower animafs that
every one pretending to be a man
onght to fight down."
"But it's a teeling that can't be
"I suppose not, out of the mass
of mankind, which is but another
name for a mass of selfishness."
"Don't you think you are a little
hard on your fellows?"
"Your question is somewhat
scarcastic, but I don't mind that.
I hope I have very little fellowship
with the shallow egotism which
always considers self the most im
portant thing in the universe."
These remarks were elicited by
the account of the crushing to death
of a dozen or so of people recently
in a panic rush at a London theatre.
"Itiseasyto talk coolly when
no peril is present; the imminence
of great danger is very apt to upset
"It's all amatter of train in jr. The
mass of manhood ate a pack of
sheep, simply becaiihc m care is
taken to teach them self-i'ommanil
"How would you ln it V"
"Through the inin.l of rourj-e.
Teach children in school that they
run more danger from a rush in a
panic-stricken mob than they do
usually from any supposed danger
from which they are trying to es
cape. Have a big placard put up
in every school room with the ques
tion and answe r: CW hat is the sa fest
thing to do in a crowded place;
when you hear the crv of lire?
'To sit perfectly still!""
"Not a bad idea!"
"I should say not. You are per
haps hardly aware that there are
very few, even of the largest
churches, theatres or halls in the
country which cannot be emptied
in less "than four minutes without
the slightest hurry."
"I did not know that."
"It is a fact, notwithstanding.
And most of them can be empitied
in much less time. After the
horrible sacrifice of life at the
Brooklyn theatre, where over three
hundred people burned to death,
experiments were made on tms
very point in JNew lork, ana wnat
do you think was the result?"
"I don't know."
"The largest house there, the
Grand opera house, on Eighth
avenue and Thirty-third street,
was cleared of its occupants in less
than two minutes and a half."
"Perhaps the people had been
told to clear out as quickly as pos
sible?" "That's just the beauty of it.
Not a word had been said in any
theatre in that citv. The people
didn't even know the experiment
was being made, and retired just
inthe usuar manner, neither quick
er or slower."
"You surprise me!"
"No doubt I do. The country
was surprised when these facts
were first published. But the
public memory is now only good
for about a week then the most
important, or touching or startling
facts is quite forgotten.

Going to Get the Sealskins.
Captain Grant who took the tug
Quickstep from Tacoma to Alaska
Monday, was an old Alaska seal
fisher and tells many interesting
reminiscences of that country.
Ten years of the captain'slifc were
spent in the employ of the Alaska
fur seal company and in speaking
of the monopoly of that company
in the seal business he expressed
himself quite freely. "Why," said
he, "it would take all the men that
can go there forty years to kill all
the seals on Saint Paul's island
alone. I think over a million seals
breed there every year."
"What is your opinion of the
hostile preparations of the sealing
schooners now on their way to
Alaska?" asked the reporter.
"The owners of 'the vessel know
when the lease expires. They are
going north lor seal skins and I
think they will get them, at any
rate I know of one vessel carrying
a crew of the roughest toughsthat
ever came irom Massachusetts, all
armed to the teeth, and two cannon.
They may make some trouble if
an attempt is made to stop their
work." Tacoma Ledger, 19.

Queer Fits and Starts.
Theiltsand starts-using these words in
their literal nieaiiinK-of the nervous people
often strike the beholder as ludicrous. The
nerves of hearing of such unfortunates are
painfully acute, and Inipigned by abrupt un
expected noises, lead tliem sometimes to per
form antics worthy of a jumplne-jack. At
tlie root of nervousness, in most instances,
is non- assimilation of the food, and conse
quently innutrition ot the nerves as of the
other tissues of the bod v. Tills prolonged,
of course, productive of serious nervous dis
ease. The remedy is Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters, that invigorate the stomach and en
ables it to perform its functions properly.
Soon aftr commencing a course of it, it will
be found that tde nerves grow more tran
quil by day, nightly repose become less in
terrupted, and appetite more vigorous and
satisfying. These are the initial indications,
followed by the complete restoration of ner
vous vigor. The Bitters also cure fever and
ague, liver complaint and constipation.

facts"about" the fathers of United

"Grover Cleveland is the only
clergyman's son who has ever been
elected president, though Arthur's
father was a clergyman. He was
not, however, elected president.
The fathers of the Virginia presi

lawyer and a statesman, and John
Adams, the father ot John yuincy
