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 IMPROVED 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. BY USING 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 gestion and Headache, was restless at nieht. and had a bad taste in my mouth every morning. After taking one box nf Apo.'a "Pilla nil llioaa trnnliloa His. appeared, my food digested well, and my sleep was refreshing. Henry O. Hemmenway, Rockport, Mass. I was cured of the Piles by the use of Ayer's PUls. They not only relieved me of that painful disorder,-but give me in creased vigor, and restored my health. John Lazarus, St. John, N.

"After all, self-preservation is the first law of nature." "Claptrap." "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 great peril?" "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 rooted out." "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 such equanimity." "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 in danger." "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.

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.

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. As hard maple was the favorite shade tree of General John A. Lo jran and Stephen A. Douglas, the state officers this year will plant trees of that variety as memorials of these distinguished s,ons of Illi nois.
