In order to know what the forthcom

the retail ones have as vet scarcely got

many women who already are begin

a recognized fact that well chosen ar

In the first place you can scarcely do
wrong in selecting a beaded bonnet.
The choice is large. They are to be

well covered with the work that the

pearls are used, with jet and glass
beads, which are bright and glistening.

ridges from crown to brim. Corrugated
pearls in many colorings are a novelty
which will be worn to races and gay
gatherings in the summer, and these
larger beads are placed at the angles

Straws are to be greatly worn in fine

Dear ami most respectfully esteemed
son May one who stands to you in the
tender and even affectionate, not to
say intimate, relation of father, for
which privilege I hope I am not un
duly grateful be permitted to plead
the brevity of human life, among other
things of far lesser importance, as one
of the many reasons of wh'ch 1 am,
however, none tho less sensible, be
lieve me, respected sir, for curtai ing
the brief suggestions which follow
herein to their narrowest limits, com
patible with a clear understanding of
the matters which it is my respectful
ambition to urge upon your attention,
to which end I beg your Indulgence
for only a brief portion of the current
year. . It appeared to me, during your
recent visit at the humble home which
it is my good fortune to share with
yon, that I could detect at perhaps not
infrequent intervals, as it were, cer
tain defects of extravagance, rather
than faults, in your conduct and recre
ations, which I am constrained to deem
it my duty, as a father whose sense of
faithfulness to his children is ever
striving for the mastery with that other
sense of the respectful attitude which
he should carefully and circumspectly
maintain toward them, to direct your
earnest attention to, with a view to
their correction. If I mny be so bold.
But, alas, the flight of tune reminds
me, need I say, that human life is all
too short for the complete and satisfac
tory performance of those tasks 'and
duties, whether self-haposed or as
signed to our hands by an all-wise and
overruling Providenee, and I now
pereeive that although I have already
exceeded the limit of time and space
allotted to me for the writing of this
letter, I have not as yet completed the
preparatory introduction to the exor

sity, therefore, perforce submit to the
further postponing of the thing (if I
may be pardoned for using so monosyl
labic a word when a much longer one
would have much worse answered my
purpose and rendered my meaning far
more unintelligible) which It was my
earnest and most respectful desire to
commuiricate to you. Your grand

most dutiful assurances of his contin

A queer use for children has been

are that youngsters will be in greater

August P.rt-h, who lives near Garvan-

fine, healthy children. These young
sters grow fast, eat three or four
hearty meals a day, and the way they
wear out domes is enough to make a
woolen factory think cyclone had

The children don't know that they are

iron rod which works the pump as the
swing vibrates back and forth. Mr.
Pirch is posilivo that the youngsters
will pump enough water during the

Interesting Account of the Discovery of a
Prerlooa Egyptian afnainy.
In a line of tombs beyond the Ram-
essenm lived four sturdy Arabs named
Abd-er-Rasoul. They supplied guides
and donkeys to tourists who desired to
visit the ruins of Thebes, and sold
them genuine and spurious antiquities.
When they found a mummy, it being
forbidden by law to sell it, the head
and hands and feetwere wrenched oil
and sld on the sly, while the torso
was kicked about the ruined temples
nntil the jackals came and carried it
away. I,' purchased a head and hand
of one-of the brothers amid the dark
shadows of the temple at Qurneh
Early in 1891 circumstantial evidence
pointed to Ahmed Abd-er-Rasoul as the
one who knew more than he would
tell. Prof. Maspero caused his arrest.
and he lay in prison in Ken eh for some
months. He also suffered the bastin
ado aud the browbeating of the women
repeatedly; he resisted bribes, and
showed no melting mood wheu threat
ened with execution. His lips told no
more titan the unfound tomb aud not
as much. Finally his brother Moham
nied regarded the offer of "bakshish,"
which Prof. Maspero deemed it wise to
make, as worth more to him than ant
sum he might hope to realize from fu
ture pillaging, and made a clean breast
of the whole affair? How the four
brothers ever discovered the hidden
tomb lias remained a "family secret"
On July 5, 1881, the wily Arab con
ducted Herr Emil ierugsch Bey, cura
tor of the Bulaq Museum, to Deir-L-l-Bahari
and pointed out the
hiding-place so long looked for.
A long climb It was, np the slope of
the western mountain, till, after seal
ing a great limestone cliff, a huge.
isolated rock was found. Behind this
. spot was renehed where the stones
appeared to an expert observer and
tomb-searcher to have been arranged
"by hand," rather than scattered by
some upheaval of nature. "There,"
aid the sullen guide; and "there" the
enterprising Emil Brugsch Bey, with
more than Egyptian alaonty.'soon had
a staff of Arabs at work hoisting the
loose stones from a well into-which
they had been thrown. The shaft had
been sunk into the solid limestone to
the depth of about forty feet, and was
about six feet square. Before going
vciy far, a huge palm-log was thrown
across the well and a block and tackle
fastened to it to help bring up the
debris. When the bottom of the shaft
was reached a subterranean passage
was found which ran westward some
twenty-four feet and then turned
directly northward, continuing into
the heart of the mountain straight except-
where broken for about two
hundred feet by an abrupt stairway.
The passage terminated in a mortuary
chamber about thirteen by twenty-
three feet in extent and barely six
feet in height There was found the
mummy of King Pharaoh of the Op
pression, with nearly forty others of
Kings, Queens, Princes and priest."

TREATING THE UJROKG DISEASE.
Many times women call on their family physldane, suffering, as they imagine, one from draper! another from heart disease,
another from liver or kidney disease, another from nervous exhaustion or prostration, another with pain here or there, and in
this way they all present alike to themselves and their easy-goinsr and indifferent, or over-busy doctor, separate and distinct diseases,
for which he prescribes his pills and potions, assuming them to be such, when. In reality, they are ail only vrapfn caused by some
womb disorder. The physician. Ignorant of the cause of suffering, enoounwres his practice until large bills are made. The suffering
patient gets no better, but probably worse by reason of the delay, wrong treatment and conseqirent complktiona. A proper medicine,
like Dr. Pierce s Favorite Prescription. dirwJerl to the catuw would have entirely removed the disease, thereby dispelling all those
distressing symptoms, and Instituting oomfort Instead of prolonged misery.

Having exhausted the skill of three phy
sicians. I wss completely discouraged, and so
vrak miilrt with dimmiltv cross the room
alone. I began taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and
using the local treatment recommended in his 'Common Sense
Medical Adviser.' I commenced to improve at once. In three
months I was perfectly cured, and nave had no trouble since. I
wrote a letter to my family paper, brlcBy mentioning how my
health had been restored, and offering- to send the full particulars
to any one writing me for them, and endrming a afomped-ea-rri
for replf. I bsve received over four hundred letters.
In reply, I have described my oase and the treatment used,
and have earnestly advised them to 'do likewise.' From a great
many I have received second letters of thanks, stating that they
had commenced the use of 'Favorite Prescription,' had sent the
5i.80 required for the 'Medical Adviser,' and had applied the
local treatment so fully and plainly laid down therein, and were

against the advice of mv physician. He got me six bottlea of the
