A Well-Known St. Louis Man Relates
His Experience and Tells How He
Succeeded in Getting Belief.
From the St. Louis, Mo., Chronicle.
"No one knows except myself the
amount ot Buttering I endured tor up.
ward of four years, from w hat I was told
was ctvtarrh of the stomach." The
speaker was Mr. J. P. Fox, one of the
best known professional swimmers in
St. Louis, now at Prof. Clark's Natatori-
nm. lUth and Pine. Prof. Dox'soccupa'
tion necessitated his being in the water
several hours every day. He contracted
a severe cold, which he neglected, then
another and another and finally he
broke down, the effect of these colds
seemed to debilitate and finally disease
his stomach, and he had such symp
toms as stinging pains in his head, an
inflammation of the membranes of the
throat and air passages, which filled
with a slimy substance, his appetite
failed him, he became gaunt ana thin
and excessively nervous all of which
denoted Catarrh of the stomach. An
attack of vertigo one day rendered him
unconscious for half an hour after which
he was confined to the house and scarcely
able to walk across the room. He was
sleepless, had violent pains and indi
gestion of the worst kind. Mr. Fox said
to our reporter :
"Often I would be seized with a feel
ing of suffocation. This went on until
one day a friend insisted that I try Dr.
WilliamB' Pink Pills for Pale People,
and he read to me a paper wherein sev
eral cures of cases similar to mine were
reported. I determined to give them a
trial. My mother threw the doctor's
medicine away, and actually before I
had taken half of the contents of the
first box I began to feel a marked im
provement. I began to sleep well, with
my returning appetite I began to take a
better view of lile, the gnawing sensa
tions in my stomach disappeared, I
ceased to belch up gas and had no feel
ings of vomiting after eating, the sore
ness in my throat went away, and, well,
within a month I ventured out of the
house. I kept on with the pills, and
well you see me now. I feel as well as
ever 1 did, and 1 don't suppose there is
a sounder man physically than myself
in the country. I am in and out of the
water three and four times a day, giving
swimming lessons, and I certainly at
tribute my present good health to Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. You can use my
name if you want to and I shall be
E leased to tell of the' great benefits I
ave derived from the, use of the
pills at any time." i

ple are now manufactured by the Dr.
Williams' Medicine Company, Schenec

A Mortuary Joke. . t .
"I have recently had a strange experi
ence," said a gentleman yesterday.
"What was it? Well, the other day I
met a lady acquaintance on the street,
and after the exchange of the usual
greetings she proceeded to condole with
me over the death of my wife. I was
dumfouhded over her pathetic and pro
fuse sympathy. When I recovered my
senses, I ventured to enlighten the lady
by assuring her that my wife was in the
land of the living, well and hearty. The
lady was astonished to learn that Mrs.
, an intimate friend of my wife, who
had told her, could have been so mis
taken. In less than an hour, after cor
recting this error I met another mutual
friend, and she had also been told by
Mrs. that my wife had gone to that
Undiscovered country.
"During that afternoon and the day
following a dozen people expressed their
sympathy over my loss, and strange to
say all of them had learned the story
from Mrs. . I of course told my
better half, and we determined to call on
Mrs. for an explanation. It was
early in the evening when in answer to
the ringing of the doorbell Mrs.
opened the door. She pretended to be
startled by my wife's presence and
screamed: 'Why, Mary, can this, be you?
I thought you were dead.'
" 'So I have heard from a dozen sources,'
responded Mary, 'and I want you to ex
plain.' v
" 'Explain? Why, that is easy. You
told me a week ago that if you were alive
you would come out on Wednesday and
spend the day with me. You didn't come;
hence I concluded that you were dead
and said so to those acquaintances I

A Lancaster Man Ran Across Some Expert
ences In the Buckeye State That Beat
Anything He Had Seen at Home Havoc
Among the Sheep In Big Oil Valley.
I was once driving over the Martic hills,
in the lower part of this county, with, my
wife and baby, flying from a thunderstorm
that was coming up rapidly in the valley,
but I only did not escape from the storm,
but ran right into another one equally
heavy on the very summit of the ridge.
When the two storms traveling in opposits
directions met directly over our heads,
streaks and balls of fire began playing
around like the spitting and exploding off
shoots of a miscellaneous collection of
Fourth of July pyrotechnics. Lightning
danced and flashed on every bit of metal
there was in my horse's harness, whirled
around with the tires on all four vheels
and ran about and zigzagged everywhere
about the buggy frame, until we were lit
erally sitting in a fiery chariot drawn by a
horse incased in flaming harness.
Neither myself, my wife norchild suffered
the slightest physical injury or inconven
ience from that awful play of electricity
about us, and the horse seemed to be im.
proved by it, but the nervous strain on us
all was terrible. That extraordinary elec
trical disturbance lasted at least a quarter
of an hour. -,.. ,
Well, I thought that a little the queerest
sort of an experience with lightning that
any one ever- had or was likely to ha ve, but I
have just come back from a visit to Ohio,and
want to say that that experience of mine
might have been the boss queer one up to
this summer, but it isn't any more. I ran
across some others in Ohio that can beat it.
Take the one, for instance, at Bailyville.
I got to Bailyville at about noon one day.
A thunderstorm had just passed over that
locality, and the clouds had nearly all
broken away or rolled to the southward.
The sun had come out and all uneasiness on
account of the storm had passed away for
thunderstorms in that region are nearly al
ways attended by more or less damage
when the most terrific thunderclap ever
heard there or elsewhere, so close to the
earth that the earth trembled as if from an
earthquake, and preceded not more than a
second by a flash of lightning of blinding
sharpness, broke from the cloudless noonday
sky. The sudden appearance and terrible
nature of the startling phenomenon par
alyzed the farming community with alarm,
and it was several minutes before any one
ventured forth to see what damage had been
done by the thunderbolt.
Some very amazing things were discov
ered. In a field on the edge of the village
a large flock of sheep were pasturing. The
sheep had all huddled together as sheep
will during a thunderstorm, and were still
huddled when the surprising clap came.
When the owner of the sheep went to the
field to see if anything had befallen his
flock, he found every sheep standing just as
they had huddled in the storm, but out
of the 40 in the flock 18 were dead. Not
one of the dead sheep had fallen to the
ground. That was strange enough, but the
18 dead sheep were black sheep, all the oth
ers being white and unhurt. Each dead
sheep had a hole in the back of its neck
around which the wool was burned away.
On a farm a short distance from the vil
lage a big flock of sheep had gathered in a
circular bunch during the storm, and every
outside sheep was killed, 20 .in all, and all
white fleeced. On that same farm, but in
another field, was a small flock of sheep,
all white except one, which was a big black
ram. The ewes all huddled about the ram
while the storm raged, and when the thun
derclap came the ram was killed, no harm
befalling one of theothersheep. More than
that, the ram's fleece had been turned by
the shock as white as that of any other
sheep in 'the flock. That was all the dam'
age that was reported during the hour I
was in Bailyville, but it was enough to con
vince me that Ohio lightning knew a few
tricks that Pennsylvania lightning hadn't
learned yet.
My friend Simon Frey lives at Big Oil
Valley with his wife and 7-weeks-old baby.
One day Simon was hurrying home from
the valley trying to get there before a
big thunderstorm that was coming up
caught him. The rain began falling before
he got there, and was coming down for cer
tain when he drove into his barn. Simon
stood in the barn door waiting for the rain
to slack up, when his house was struck by
lightning. It seemed to hit both chimneys
at once, and a streak of fire ran from one
chimney along the peak of the roof, and
midway between the two chimneys it met
another streak of fire that was flashing
along the peak from the other chimney, or,
rather, where the chimney had been, for
both chimneys had been knocked into brick
dust by the lightning. When the two fiery
currents met in the center of the ridgepole,
there was an explosion like the discharge
of a cannon, and a fountain of bluish flame,
that threw off snapping and zigzagging
sparks and jets of fire, shot up into the air
at least 10 feet. Then all was over, the
whole exhibition lasting not more than
three seconds.
Simon was only three rods away from the
house, but felt not the slightest effects of
the terrible shock. He ran to the house,
not knowing what horrifying sight might
await him there, as it seemed impossible
that his wife and baby could have escaped
death beneath that terrible electrical bom
bardment. But they had, and after the
first shock of his fright was over Simon
couldn't do anything else but lie down and
almost burst with laughter, the lightning
had brought about so ludicrous a situation
in the house. Mrs. Frey was sitting on the
kitchen table, her head resting against the
wall. In One hand she held a rolling pin,
while the other was buried to the wrist in
a roll of dough. She was covered with floui
from head to foot. The baby lay in a
basket of newly washed clothes in a fat
corner of the kitchen, yelling at the top of
its lungs. The baby's cradle was turned
upside down in the-center of the room.
Aside from a severe nausea that troubled
Mrs. Frey all the rest of the day, neither
she nor the baby suffered any ill effects
from their extraordinary experience. Lan

She was acting Meg Merrilies. , In one
scene in answer to her appeal for money,

for stage gold. One day Miss Cushman

it is the Populist in medicine. The more

to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure
in all its stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure
known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh
being a constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the foundation
of the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work.
