"How do Ilookt"
That depends, madam, upon how
you feel. If you're suffering from
functional disturbances, irregulari
ties or weaknesses, you're sure to
"look it." And Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription is the remedy.
It builds up and invigorates the
Bystem, regulates and promotes the
proper functions, and restores health
and strength. It's a legitimate
medicine, not a beverage ; purely
vegetable, perfectly harmless, and
made especially for woman's needs.
In the cure of . all " female com
plaints," it's guaranteed to give sat
isfaction, or tho money is refunded.
No other medicine for women' is
sold so,. Think of that, when tho
dealer says something else ( which
pays him better) is "just as good."

THE PASS WAS SAVED.
Experience of a Brooklyn Party In Catch-
Inj a Jay Street Ferryboat.
"I never went to tho Jay street ferry
except once," said a Brooklyn man,
"but on that occasion I had an experi
ence that I shall long remember. There
was a lady from Chicago visiting at my
house, and she had planned to go home
on a certain day by a certain train. The
fact is she had a pass, and unless she
got that particular train the pass would
expire before she could make use of it.
My wife and I were going over to see
her off. I tried my best to get them
started early, but they were confident
that there was plenty of time, and it
was impossible to hurry them. At
length, however, we got under way,
with just time enough to reach the
train if we had good luck.
"We took a car to the Broadway ferry
and crossed over to Grand street. I
am not sure that we might not have
made better time if we had gone over
the bridge and down Chambers street.
However, at Grand street we took the
little one horse car that runs across
town through Canal street and down
Washington street within one block of
the ferrv we wanted to reach. I never
saw a cifr go so slowly in all my life,
and the worst of it was that I was un
familiar with the region through which
we were going and with the route, and
I couldn't tell how far we were from
our destination. '
"At length we came to a full stop,
and looking out I saw a big truck
blocking our way. There was no driver
on it and no apparent reason why it
might not be turned out of the way
with very little trouble. , But, to my
dismay and disgust, the driver of our
ear calmly tied up his lines and perched
himself on the dashboard of the car,
Just as if it was . no matter to him
whether he and we stayed there half
an hour or not. ' And there was that
pass expiring moment by moment
inch by inch, as I might say. I was
growing desperately nervous. So
rushed out on the platform, pressed a
half dollar in the hand of the driver
and said :
" 'Now I want you to get me to Jay
street by such and such a time. , It is
very important. I must be there with
out fail. Can you do it?"
, ' 'Indeed, and that I can,' was his
answer, and before the words were out
of my mouth he was off the car and
turning the big truck out of the way.
Then you ought to have seen how he
spun along. He fairly whipped that
horse into a run, and we tore down the
street in fine shape. It mnst have been
a new experience for the horse. Well,
the upshot of it was that we got to Jay
street just as they were hauling in the
planks and closing the gates. I shout
ed to them to hold on, as two ladies
were coming, for I had run on ahead
and my companions had not yet en
tered the ferry house. The dock

Getting a Good Lobster.
Those who do the marketing and
have to buy lobsters are often bothered
to pick put a good one. Here is a
good rule to follow: If you examine a
lobster that was alive when thrown
into the boiler you will find that the
tail is curled up to the body, while one
that was dead has the tail extended.

WHY HE WAS LEAVING THE TOWN.
An Undertaker Explains How Ungrate
ful gome People Can Be.
"I remember," said the colonel, when
the party reached the end of t a good
dinner and the waiters stood behind
the chairs with lighted matches, "I re
member an incident which stamped
npon my mind the fact that when a
man has an eye for business he has an
eye for nothing else."
. The colonel tells a story well, and
paused here, waiting for the cigars to
be lighted, and for the inspiring fra
grance of the Havanas.
"I shall not tell you how long ago it
was, for I am getting too old to speak
lightly of decades. ( But when I first set
foot and it was a tender foot, let me
say in Hugo, Colo., I at once conceived
a great respect for a man named Hig
gins. I could not help feeling a rever
ence for Higgins. Higgins was an un
dertaker. He was the only undertaker
within a hundred . miles, and he was
getting rich. , Never a day passed but
my friend Higgins had a funeral on
hand. H e was the most cheerf u I under
taker, perhaps, that ever flourished.
- "1 remember well the day that I
bade Higgins good-by. He-was as light
spirited as a grasshopper, and a thou
sand times expressed his regret that I
was going into the interior, until I felt
clammy lest he might be grieved at the
thought that some one else might have
the profitable job of burying me. .
"When I next saw Higgins it was
after a two years' experience of chasing
wild steers. I was glad to see him, he
was such a jolly old undertaker.
" 'Hello, Higgins,1 I said cheerfully
when I walked into his establishment.
'How are you, old man?' ,
"Higgins shook his head mournfully,
and then I stopped short in amazement,
for I saw that he was nailing down
boxes and packing up his stock.
" 'You aren't going to move, are
youf I cried in surprise, but he only
jammed a roll of crape into a dry
goods bos and went on with his work.
" 'See here, Higgins,' I cried, 'what's
the trouble? Tell me about it.'
: . "The old man turned on me wrath-
" 'Ain't I been one o' Hugo's best
citizens?' he asked sternly.
"You have, Higgins.'

are crowded into it.
We all know how we have advanced
materially. Do we realize how we have
advanced scientifically ? More than in
any other manner. Indeed, it has been
the advancement in science which has
caused the advancement in material
things. The discovery of steam per
mitted the railroad and the steamboat.
The development of electricity made
possible the telegraph and the telephone,
so that the development of the sciences
has been the real cause of all modern
We will take, for example, one depart
ment of science, but the most important
department. One which affects our very
lives and happiness. Formerly the
trea'wnent of hitman ills was made a
matter of superstition, of incantation,
the same as it is by the medicine men
of the Indians to-day. Gradually emerg
ing Ironi such blindness, it was still a
matter of bigotry, of folly. What people
must have suffered in those days can
scarcely be imagined. They were bled,
they were cupped, they were leeched,
they were subjected to every device
whereby their vitality could be reduced
and their lives endangered. It is almost
a wonder that the race Eurvived.
; There has been an absolute revolution
in the practice of medicine and in the
treatment of human ills. Instead of un
dermining the vital forces by cupping
and bleeding, the vitality is, "now sus
tained in every possible manner. In
stead of tearing down we seek to build
up, Instead of increasing misery we
set-k to create happiness.
But the greatest advancement in medi
cal science has been made by discovery.
Harvey could afford to t-ndure the ridi
cule ot the world for revealing to it the
grand discovery of the circulation of the
olood. Jenner might be ostracized, but
millions have benefited by his discovery
of vaccination. Pasteur lived in a more
enlightened age and escaped ridicule,
while the world received the benefit
which his discoveries have brought.
Koch, although forced to reveal his dis
covery before its perfection, will be re
vered by future generations. .
The discoveries of these great men
have been of .untold benefit to the
world, and yet they were not in the line
of the world's greatest need. Mankind
has been suffering, enduring, dying from
a cause far greater than f mall pox, more
terrible than hydrophobia ciid more
eubtle than consumption. The habits of
modern life, the very inventions which
have made civilization so great, have
drained the-vital forces of life and under
mined the organs that sustain life. Ten
years ago this great truth was realized
by a gentleman whose own life was in
sore jeopardy, and the discovery which
he has given to the world has done and
is doing more to-day to strengthen the
vitality, lessen suffering, preserve the
health and lengthen life than any of the
discoveries of the other great men above
mentioned. The discovery referred to
was made by Mr. H: H. Warner of
Rochester, N. Y., and is known in Eu
rope, in America and throughout the
world as Warner's Safe Cure.
It may perhaps be thought that the
above assertion is an extravagant one,
and so it would be were not the unques-'
tionable proofs present to verify it.
Within the past few years the claims
made more than ten years ago have been
