Is' the Wail of the
Merves for Food.
People with Weak, Habby Nerves are the Ones who

An Interesting Interview with A Prominent Phy
sician and a Case in Point Cited.
From Ike Journal,
"What k this modern (tiseue called ner
vous prostration 7"
If this question had been asked a physi
cian in our grandfathers' time, he could not
have answered it. The disease was not
known then. It is new, aod is a product of
oar American hustle and worry. Stated in
brief, nervous prostration is a complete col
lapse of the nervous svstem. It b brought
on by overwork, worry or disease, and the
patient can only be cured by rest and a
proper feeding of the nerves.
Nonce the dragced-oot appearance of the
average mother. Sheeanfwtreelrdrairher.
elf around ; her nerves and strength have
been overtaxed ; she has no reserve force.
She keeps up, but it k at the expense of her
nervous system. Finally she is overcome;
she can work no more , her nerves are ex
bautted ; the carts and worries of her life
have gotten the better of her, and it will re
quire weeks and months to recover.
Thoughtless people say : " How foolish to
work to hard and how foolish to worry.";
That is verv well, but bow many thousands
of mothers there are who have burden )
enough for a score, and whose poor, weak ;
little bodies endure uncomplainingly all the
burdens until finally they have to stop and t
it is a auestion if they have not waited too I
long. , j
In cases of this kind there is a food within I
the reach of alt. and it is always effective.
It is to the weakened nerves what bread and '
beef are to the muscular system. It supplies j
them all the properties necessary to build j
them up. strengthen them and restore them '
to a vigorous, healthy condition. This new j
food is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale i
People. If space permitted, we could fill ;
pages of this paper with the heartfelt testi-j
monisis of thousands who have found in i
these nills their ml ration. We onlv erive 1
one. but later others will be published that
will be read with much interest by anyone
suffering with weakened nerves as a result of
the season or otherwise.
No more deplorable condition of the fan
man body can be conceived than that of
nervous prostration, when every nerve in the
system seems to vie with the others to -make i
yon miserable, when even the sunshine irri- j
tales you, when the happy prattle of the child j
distracts the loving parent, when life is :
haunted by a constant foreboding, when the
Jieht of life seems to turn to a smoking, i
mnoolderinsr Same of torture that's pan of ;
nervous prostration, just a phase of this j
many-sided disease. As its grasp upon you i
strengthens you lose, perhaps, the power to I
walk, to talk, to think, even the power to j
love. Death would be welcome, but alas ! it
comes not until the cup of suffering is full to :
overhowing. Such has been the experience 1
of Mr. Henry Gehrke, whose story is best j
told in his own words.
To show the results of this nerve food on a I
special ease, to prove the points above made, j
our reporter made the followine interview :
"Benry Gehrke is a thrifty and prosperous 1
German farmer living four miles south of
Bullion, in this Adair) coamv. llo. Mr. i
Gehrke has a valuable form and he has been
a resident of the county for vears. He is very
well-known hereabouts and well respected i
wherever he is known. Last week a reporter
of the Journal stopped at Sir. tielirke's and
while there became much interested in lira.

ready said of them. Her only reason for
talking for publication abont Pink Pills was
that the people of Adair and neighboring
counties might be convinced, if any doubted,
that oft-published testimonials concerning
Pink Pills were genuine statements from the
lips of persons who have been benefited by
the use ot them. Speaking of her own in
teresting experience, 11 r. Gehrke said :
" A little over a year ago I was completely
broken down. I had been taking medicine
from a doctor but grew worse and worse un
til I could scarcely go about as all. The
least exertion or the mere bending of my
body would cause me to have smothering
spells, and the suffering wss terrible. I
thought it was caused by my heart. When
everything else had foiled to relieve me and
I had given up all hopes of ever being any
thing but a helpless invalid. 1 chanced to
read some testimonials in the Farm, f'ieid
and Ftraide. also in the Chicago Juter-fkttm
and the suffering of the people who made
the statements was so nearly like the suffer
ing I had endured that when I read that they
were so great It benefited hv the use ot Ir.
Williams Pink Pills tor Pale People. 1 did
not hesitate to go at once and purchase wo
boxes. 1 took them according to directions
and before the first hoj was used I fell a gi.d
bit better. Really the first dose conviuced
me that it was a great remedy. Before the
two boxes were tued up I sent my husband
after three more boxes, to I would not be
without them. When I had used these
three boxes 1 felt like a different woman and
thought I was almost cured.
" Since that time 1 have been takintr them
whenever I becan to feel badly. When I
began taking Dr. William' Pink Pills for
Pale People. I weighed only 113 pounds and
after I had been usingihe medicine for about
six months 1 weighed 122 pounds. I have
had a good appetite ever since I commenced
taking Pink Pills and instead of mincing
along, picKine sucn loou as l couta eat even
with an effort, I eat most anything that
comes on the table. I am not the invalid I
was. 1 do not have to he waited upon now
as if I was a helpless child, but I work all
the time, doing the housework and ironing
and working in the garden without tliat
dreadful feeling which eomesover a person
when they are afraid thry are going to have
one of those spells that 1 used to have.
Work don't hurt me any more. I hon
estly believe that had it not been for Itr.
Williams' Pink Pills I would now be in my
grave. I still have what thedoetor calls bil
ious colic but the Pink Pill have made me
much better and the spells are not so frequent
and are nothing like as painful as before I be-
Fin to use them. 1 wouid not he without the
ink Pills for that disease ulone under any
circumstances to tay nothing of the other dis
eases for whieh they are especially recom
mended. I take pleasure id telitnrmy neigh
bors the benefits I have received from Ir.
Williams' Pink Pills for Paie People, and
know of several who have taken my advice
and have been gr-jily benefited by them."

INDIANS AS HUNTERS.
ffcay Ha- Hot Frlghtm tb Gam Oak off
Dtatrtcu, smi Whits Men to, ,
It U a remark often made by old
timers who knew thevrefcicrn com. try
when the red man was s cowmen there
as the tenderfoot is now, wild a sport
man from the Rookies, that Indians
never scare sway pune from a rvgion
in which they hunt Ihit, they tay,
wherever the white man cornea with hit
firearms game is bound to be killed off
or driven away. These suyinps are
true, with the qualifying statement
that by reasonable frnme luwa frame of
all kinds can be preerl and even
j when nearly exterminated restored to
I almost its original pnmtifulness in dis
trict not too fully occupied by man
ana nis domestic creatures.
Note the Indian in hunting as he
searches out and steals upon the deer
or wild turkeys with his soft trend f
raoeciisiued feet In the twang of his
bow string and the flight cf the whist
ling arrow there is no explosive sound
to alarm the creatures near the one
that is struck, lie, like thrmselvea, is
in sympathetic accord with the tiuts
' and tones of plain mouutuin and for
: est, and while endeavoring to match
! their craft against his they are satis
fled with trying to avoid him without
abandoning the region where he abides.
It is when white hunters of the
! sportsmen variety invade its haunts,
their presence heralded by the tread of
j their booted feet their clothes alien in
: appearance to the hues and contours of
the creatures of the wilds, and their
purpose shown by the crark and crash
of firearms, that game begins to mi
grate to other feeding grounds. Add
to this the increasing ano ind Uteri mi
nate slaughter for slaughter's sake that
characterizes the white man s hunting
and it is easy to see why the depopula
tion of the forest and plain, when un
restricted by law, is speedy and sure.
Ever since the general adoption by In
dians of firearms for their hunting it
has not been found that large gumc
has diminished materially in regions in
which the white man is an infrequent
visitor, although Sir Samuel Uaker. the
explorer, assert, of African gnme and
predatory creatures that "animal.1 can
endure traps, pitfalls, fire, and cwry
savage method of hunting; but fire
arms will speedily clear them out from
USES OF THE CACTUS.
hm m BMervoIr ta a Thinly Land.
AUo Cud Tor M..!i,-ln.
In the arid plains of lirazil and Mex
ico, where all nature seem, parched up
for six months in the year, the cacti
serve as reservoirs of moisture, we are
told, and not only the natives, by
wonntlin? the fleshy stems with their
lonp forest knives, fetlpply themselves
with a cool aod refre;ihhi? juice, but
even the catUe contrive to break
through the skin with their hoofs and
then to suck the liquid tliey contain,
instinct teachimr them to aoid wound
iiur themselves with the spines.
Where the prickly pear cactus -rrowa
to an immen.-e size the brunches are
fed to catlie and sheep after the thorns
are burned oft. Tbe lruit is lar-rs and
pear-shaped, blood red in eolor when
ripe and very sweet. The fruit is used
in the fall to color preserves or jellies.
The fruit of fiU kinds is edibie and
iome very palatable. The leaves of the
prickly pear are used for poultices for
wounds or bruises, and the root is rich
in medicinal qualities. The Mexican
Indiansare said to be very fond of the
leaves of different rarities of opuntia:
they fry them in batter lil.c cakes. A
luscious beverage is afforded the thirs
ty traveler by some of the larger speci
mens. The tops are cut of? in such a
manner as to leave a basin-like eavitv.
which Is soon filled with the juice of
the plant. It is said that beautiful
furniture, tables costing as much aj
four hundred dollars, are made from
the large-growiug varieties, aud vari
ous ornaments, napkin riijgs. paper
knives, match sates. inksUinds. etc-,
are made from the beaut:ful wood of
the candle cactus. It seems strange,
says the Ladies Home Journal, that
human habitations can be made from
thsese queer succulent plants, yet we
are told that huts are built with the
lumber of cereus gi?anleou.s. Fences,
impenetrable to man or beast, are made
of opuntia tuna aud of various rapid
growing cereuses. and hedges from a
variety known as the strawberry.
BEGGARY AND SUPERSTITION.

Begging is a reifular trade in many
parts of the world, home who practice
it may almost be sitid to make it an art.
or a profession. A good mendicant,
like a good salesman, studies his cus
tomers, discovers their weak points, if
he can, and trades upon them. A
French writer, who has given much at
tcntion to the subject, describes at
length the methods by which such peo
plewho get tiicir living by pauperi
culture' play upon the superstitions
of their victims.
There is a common notion that giving
alms brings good fortune.

NAPOLEON'S GRAND REVIEWS.
Tht Last Hu nl tha B-a: timing of tlie
Hancb-ad bars' Campaign.
It (waa customary with Kapoleon to
review bis troops frequently even in
time of peace, and always before a
great battle. These events sometimeK
assumed the name of "grand reviews,"
and were held in the public squares ot
Paris. The last of these, says the Chi
cago Herald, was on the 20th of March,
1815, in the Place du Carrousel, on the
anniversary of the birth of the king of
Borne, and included all the troops then
in Paris. It was the beginning of the
famouB "hundred days" of Napoleon.
The emperor having passed through
every rank, thctvgiments formed them
selves into square battalions, and were
addressed in these words: "Soldiers, 1
returned to France with only twelve
hundred men. because I relied upon
the love of the people and the remem
brance of me cherished by the veteran
troops. 1 have not been deceived in
my expectations; I thank you soldiers.
The glory of all that is achieved is en
tirely due to the people and yourselves
ily only merit consists in having jutly
appreciated you. We are on the point
of marching to drive from our territory
the auxiliaries of foreign princes; the
nation will no doubt second our en
deavors and foUow our unpuise. The
Frencb people and myself rely upon
you. We will not meddle with the af
fairs of other nations but woe be to
those who intenere wltn us If they
nave six hundred thousand men we
can oppose them with two million."
During the whole of t!i.- addref-s,
which was somewhat extended, the en
thusiasm of the wldtcra was every
where apparent, and at its conclusion
their expressions of approbation were
reiterated for srcrl minutes. Just as
the review terminated, a ludy. very
elegantly dren-sed, mnde her way
toward the emperor, bearing a sealed
package in her hnnils which she pre
sented to him. requesting that it
might not lie opened until bis return
to the palace. It was afterward under
stood to contain lr.:n!: bill, to o con
siderable amount, the tribute of au un
known patriot in stipiwirt of her coun
try and the cause of the emperor.
A GENUINE SNOOZE.
Tha Lndlerooa gltustlin of a Kmed Com
d!n. Joe Jefferson is a careful actor, but
once in Chicago he overdid one portion
of bis performance. He was playinp
Kip Van Winkle, and went to the thea
ter very mtn:h exhausted by a loup
day's lishinjr on the lake. As the cur
tain rose on the third act. buys our in
formant, it uisclosed the white-haired
Hip still deep iu tiie twenty years' nap.
Five. ten. twenty minutes pussed and
he did not waken. The audience befan
to (ret impatient and the prompter un
'easy. The (Treat actor doubtless knew
what he was about, but this was carry-ins-
the realistic basinets too fur. The
fact was that all this time Jefferson
was really sleeping the bleep of the
just, or rather of the fisherman who
had tat eight hours in the sun. Vinti'
ly the gallery became unroarinus. and
one of the "(roos" wanted to know if
there was froing to be "nineteen year?
more of this snooze business." At this
point Jeflerson vegan to snore. This
decided tne prompter, who opened a
small trap beneath the stage and began
to prod Kip from below. The fagged
comedian fumbled in his pocket for an
imaginary railway ticket and muttered
drowsily; "doing right through, 'uuc
tor." At this entirely'new reading tbe
audience was translixed with amaze
ment, when aU at once Jefferson sat
up with a loud shriek, evidently in
agony. The exasperated prompter had
"jabbed" him with a pin.
