The First Sign
Of falling health, whether in the form ol
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
senso of General Weariness and Loss of
Appetite, should suggest the use of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
i3 most effective for giving tone and
strength to the enfeebled system, pro
moting the digestion and assimilation of
food,. restoring the nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify?
ing, enriching, and vitalizing the blood.
Ten years ago my health began to fail.
I was troubled 'with a distres3ingCough,
Night Sweats, Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, but
becamo so weak that I could not go up
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended me to try Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, which I did, and I am now
as healthy and strong as ever. Mrs.
E. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I havo
also prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
uciiuvc it iu ue uiu oest uioou raeuicmo
evercompounded. W.F. Fowler, M.D.,
D. D. S., Greenville, Tenn.
It would bo impossible for mo to de
scribe what I suffered from Indigestion
and Headache up to tho time I began
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
tho care of various physicians, and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla'
for a short time, my headache disap
peared, and my stomach performed its
duties more perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
Harley, Springfield, Mass.
I havo been greatly benefited by the
prompt use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
tones and invigorates the system, regu
lates tho action of the digestive and
assimilative organs, and vitalizes tho
blood. It is, without doubt, the most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.

"The Komans Were Like Brothers In
The Brave Days of Old1."
"I have ridden on horseback
through the forests and over the
hills of all the republics of Central
America," said Mr. Fred. Gaert
ner, a mining engineer, who sev
enteen years ap;o began prospect
ing for gold and silver in Costa
Rica, and is to-day one of the
wealthiest as well as the most
popular of the residents of the
small but prosperous and inde
pendent coast territory, "and I am
familiar with the social customs
and business habits of all of them,
from Mexico to Colombia. Each
claims to be a little in advance of
the others iu respect to internal
resources, which are chiefly coffee,
gold and silver. They all labor
more or less under difficulties of
transportation and none of them
will be able to develop its wealth
to any marked extent until the
pack-mule gives way to the rail
road. My own impression is that
Cobta Rica is further advanced
than an' other of the republics;
but at all events she can afford to
wait. She has a delightful cli
mate and the atmosphere is"so dry
and pure, though always flavored
and vitalized by the influences of
the Atlantic and Pacific oceans,
that I believe it can restore a con
sumptive to health if "his disease
has not made too pronounced a
'But it is the friendly feeling
that actuates the residents of Cos
ta Rica and draws them, socially,
so firmly together that it makes
life in the little republic so pleas
ant. "We are always willing to as
sist a stranger if he drifts to our
coast, but we greatly prefer that
he should stay away, for we are
quite sufficient to ourselves; but if
a newcomer is really anxious to
get on, and is willing to work and
make himself a useful , member of
the community, and if he knows
something worth working at in
our territory, and is, besides, a
good fellow, with gentlemanly in
stincts, and no objectionable1 hab
its, we give him every assistance
in our power, and he will be likely
to succeed. But if, for any reason
we come to the conclusion, after
observing him for a few weeks,
that he is an undesirable por-xr.

him in a very summary way in

and a delegation waits upon him
"'We are very sorry sir, but
there does not seem to be any
opening for you here. Wo havo
tried to help you, but, as you see,
we havo failed. San Francisco is
a large city and not much more
than 4,000'miles away. You will
certainly be able to obtain em
ployment there. Here are a couple

Built On Sawdust.
Twenty-five years ago, East
Saginaw, Mich., was a scattering
hamlet, built here and there among
and along the edges of the swamps
and bayous bordering the Sagi
naw river. The sawdust and
debris of tho mills were used to
fill up these inequalities more for
the purpose of getting rid of the
annoying accumulations, than from
any well defined knowledge of the
value of such material, or its pos
ble use as a future soil. From
year to year the work went on.
The swamps and bayous were
filled up, and soil was spread on
top of the sawdust, of variable
thicknesses, from sixteen inches to
two feet. Strange as it may seem,
there was no settling of the ground
and heavy buildings were erected
upon the soil thus made. These
buildings are the best in the city,
and show no cracked walls. Sew-,
ers are dug through what was for
merly a bed of sawdust, and while
traces of the material can yet be
found, still there is a clear evi
dence of the transformation pro
cess going on, beheld in each
shovel of matter thrown out. It
would be difficult to fully and
clearly explain this process. It
looks as though the exudations ri
sing up lrom beneath the over-tying
debris are continually acting
as distilling elements, by which
the granules of sawdust gather to
themselves earth incrustations, and
finally become a homogeneous
conglomeration of original soil,
without undergoing the action of
decomposition. This 'Hypothesis
may not be any clearer than mud,
but it is certain that nna of the
finest and most substantial ciiies
in .Michigan rests secure to day on
a bed of sawdust, which latter has
resolved itself back into Us origi
