This is the common complaint of
the dyspeptic.
If mating sparingly would cure
dyspepsia, few would suffer from it
The only way to cure dyspepsia,
which is difficult digestion, is to
give vigor and tone to the stomach
and the whole digestive system.

Great Variety of rood fa Dtepaweed by
the toanm atar Departeaaat.
No one outside of the army has any
Idea ot the variety of commissary ar
ticles which are carried In the sub
sistence storehouses at army posts.
The present extensive stock Is a grad
ual growth since lStiO, when the old
army sutler was supplauted by the
post trader, who In turn was driven out
of the service by an eiposnre of cor
ruption and cotluslou which Involved
even the wife of a cabinet offlovr and
dragged the latter Into retirement.
The Dost trader carried a few ar
tlclea which he sold to the officers and
men at exorbitant prlees, and one of
the choice government "tuapsM waa a
post tradershln, for which men were
willing to pay large sums that they
might have the protection and Uceuse
of the government In robbing the help
less army officers and soldiers of re
mote frontier garrisons. The variety
ot the post trader's stock was as lim
ited aa Its quality was Indifferent
When the post trader was banished
the subsistence department of the
army extended Its system so aa to em
brace something besides the ration
which It purchased and Issued to
troops. It began to keep such articles
as smoked fish, sirups, canued oysters
and lobsters, jellies, jama, flour, hams,
coffee, candles and salt. The list was
a meager one, but It was the begiuutng
of an elaborate system and an exten
sive stock. The department has im
proved Its supplies year by year, keep
ing In mind the needs aud the desires
of the enlisted men, the officers and
their families. These supplies are out
side the regular ration and are sold at
contract prices even tJ officers and
men on the retired list, provided they
certify that the supplies are Intended
for their owu consumption.
In the list of foods there are now all
kinds of canned and evaporated fruits,
canned vegetables, fish and meats,
four varieties of soup, four varieties of
crackers and three varieties of white
sugar. There are all kinds of spices
and seasonings, sauces and jellies,
among which are four varieties of
pickles and two varieties of table
sauce. There are four brands of ci
gars and four varieties of smoking to
bacco, with other smoking articles and
supplies. Sometimes these varieties do
not meet all the demands ot the army.
and additional kinds are provided, but
there Is a limit placed on certain arti
cles, and the department does not pro
vide more than ten varieties of cigars
(none costing more than $t$ per $100,
or $12 In the open market), six varie
ties of pickles- or crackers and five of
smoking tobacco or soup. Saturday

Sanguinary Conflict Takea Place After
. a Meal on Fermented Cane.
The most exciting affair In the vlclnl
ty of Branson, Fla., of late was the fero
cious combat between two of Farmer
Hawkins' Intoxicated cows the other
day, causing the death of one after a
fight that would put a 'modern bull
fight to blush.
Hawkins lives four miles from Bran
son and prides himself upon his fine
stock. He makes lots of cane sirup
also. In the grinding season most of
the farmers In this country make beer
for home consumption from the "cane
skimmings," but Hawkins Is a stanch
teetotaler and vowed he would give the
skimmings to his cows. So be filled the
trough full the other afternoon, not
dreaming of the tragic consequence to
Soon two of his pet cows came up
and began drinking the liquid. It tast
ea gooa, ana the cows wanted more.
Soon they had on a goodly "jag" and
they got belligerent One plunged at
the other, trying to get possession of
the trough. The other, with a bellow
of defiance, gored her antagonist in the
side with artistic skill. The other turn
ed tall for a moment and then came
rushing back, pinning the cow to a post
and goring her frightfully.
The fight then became general. The
Infuriated animals bellowed and
plunged at each other and fought with
deadly earnestness. This was kept up
for a half an hour, when one was
knocked down In & dying condition, and
the other was just able to walk around
and bellow triumphantly. The men
folks beard the uproar, but did not get
to the scene of the warfare In time to
stop It
Mr. Hawkins Is out one cow, but has
lots of experience. The old settlers
around there say this Is a common oc
currence where cattle drink this skim
mings, as it makes them fighting drunk
and a scrimmage follows. In the old
times It was one of the boys' sports to
get a drove of cattle In an Inclosure
and feed them with cane skimmings
and watch the fight tbat would follow.
When He Held the Jack.
"He was a sottish sort of chap, but
played a tolerably fair game of seven
up," said ex-Sheriff Warren K. Rldg
way, of Pike County, Pennsylvania.
"We were sitting In, up at Lacka
wanna, playing for a quarter a corner.
I knew he was dead gone on a girl up
at the Narrows, and so remarked, casu
ally, early In the game:
" 'Every time a fellow gets the jack
of tramps In seven-up It's a sure sign
his girl Is thinking of htm.'
"Then I sort o' watched the young
fellow, and the very next hand he
picked up I noticed bis eyes light up
and a real nice flush of pleasure spread
over his face. So I led out and, sure
as pollywogs! I cangbt his jack, as I
thought maybe I would. And It worked
so well all the evening that I had a
whole lot of his quarters when we
quit. But he seemed pleased, and
went up to the Narrows on the next
train." New York Evening Sun.

Black Mae 1 Barrett,
Calvert City. In Marshall County, la
KentuckT. I one of the few ttlace In
the world that has effectually solved
the race problem. Not a negro Is to be
found within a radius of doien tulles,
aud the lu'gro Is yet to be discovered
who has auy pertuauont desire to cotue
To threaten a negro with Calvert
City Is to bring before his frlghteued
vision pictures of death more horrible
than by lyuchlng.
The peaceable, law-abiding spirit tbat
prevails In the little Kentucky town la
swiftly baulshcd wheu a uegre ap
pears. If be keeps going be la hot
molested, provided he atteud strictly
to hi owu affairs aud doe nothing to
provoke the ever-alert hostility of the
residents. Hut be cuu neither take up
his abode there uor remain over all
ulght, aud ao disastrous have beeu all
past attempts to break this unwritten,
but uoue the less, atrtngeut law, that uo
ucgro would to day dare to move Into
Calvert City aud aunoutice bis luteuttou
of remalulng.
The town Itself Is a small place of a
few hundred luhabltauts, situated on
the Illinois Central railroad, ouly a
Union in Ilea from I'aducah, the uietro-
polla of South went Keutucky.
The luteuse hatred of the negro dates
hack tweuty years or more. Few pro
fess to know Its origlu. aud ninny claim
that It was born In the pimple, but some
of the older Inhabltauts declare that It
had Its luceptlou yeara ago, wheu two
negroes man led white women aud set
tled there. The avvralou of the people
became so great that numerous at
tempts, resulting In considerable blood
shed, were made to expel the inUtmtted
couples, aud eveutually they were
driven away.
This aroused the bitterest hostility
among the uegroea, and the white peo
ple aoou grew to 'so hate the sight of
oue that every negro was aultlmately
run out of the vicinity, and one baa
never been kuown to live lu those parts
In recent years there has been no
serious trouble, but It Is estimated that
no less thnu teu or a doten negroes who
had settled In the neighborhood have
been shot from ambush or otherwise
mysteriously killed.
This reprehensible means of exter
minating them, however, was always
dopted as a Inst resort, aud uo one
waa ever punished for rellevlug the
community of their presence.
Old Mrrvante' lrls.
On the Austrian emperor's fete day a
diiuiIht of irUts were distributed to
servsnts who have lc-n a long time
lu the same situation. The pHse was
about 15 lu eucl) case. First on tbe
list was a vulvt, axttl 71, wbo bad
served forty-six ooiinecutlve years In
one family. The second was a nurse,
7'J years old, who bad served forty-two
years In o:e fnmlly; a maid of all work,
77 years old. wbo bad served forty-one
years In a nunnery, rame next; then
an under cook, aged 51, wbo bad
served thirty-nine years tu a boy's or
phanage. There was a maid of all work, aged
70, who bad served thirty-nine years
In one family; a kitchen maid, tH years
old, wbo bad been In the household of
Princess Clementine of Coburg for tblr-
ty-ulne years, came next, and then, 68
years old, came one wbo bad been a
lady's maid to Baroness Cbley for thir
ty-eight years.
Altogether there were twenty-one
names on (he list, and the shortest term
of service was thirty years. Our cor
respondent remarks that the mistresses
of these good people deserved prls,
too, for they must surely have lovable
tempers If they can go on being waited
upon by ladles' maids and maids of all
work of the ages named.
Siberian lllvere Well Lighted.
One of tbe most remarkable features
of tbe Uusslan navigation of Siberian
rivers consists In the thorough way In
which each verst of the navigable 3,000
or more Is lighted. There Is always a
lamppoHt In sight, and these are paint
ed white or red, so as to be easily dis
cernible during the day. This miiKt
necessitate the employment of at least
1,000 llghtkeepers. who also patrol and
sound the river's depth within their re
spectlve beats. Each Isolntcd woodpile
must have Its gunrdlans, who live near
by In a log but or two.
An Exceptional Lake
An interesting exploration of Lake
Tanganyika and the country north of
It, finished recently, revealed tbe fact
that while certain sea molluscs are
found In this lake, It Is the only one
of all the large African lakes In which
such phenomena are observed. This
lake is only a short distance, sora
eighty miles, from the great Congo ba
sin, much of which, without doubt, was
once covered by tbe sea.
