To make a mad dog to order, tie a tin pan
to his tail. A man made mad is one who,
after suffering 10, 15 or 20 years with rheu
matism, rinds that by the use of a bottle of
St. Jacobs Oil he is cured. He feels the
waste of his life in pain, with the loss of
time, place ana money, ana tnen reflects
that for the expense of 50c. he could have
saved all this and lived free of pain ; it is
enough to make him mad. Most of our suf
ferings are intensified by delay in seeking
relief, and there is much worth knowing as
regards the cure of pain that we find out at
last only by the use of the best cure. It is
worth knowing that for the cure of rhen
matism there is a special virtue in The
Great Remedy for Fain, St. Jacobs Oil, and
as so much can be saved by its use, the cost
is really nothing.
A fire was fought in New Jersey re
cently, by pumping from wine vats.
The loss by fire was $2,000, and it took

that science has been able to cure in all its
stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is the only positive cure knows to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a constitu
tional disease, requires a constitutional treat

acting directly upon the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving the pa
tient strength by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work. The
proprietors nave so much faith in its curative
powers, that they offer One Hundred Dollars

Electric Return Currents. '
The theory of the earth 'as a conduc
tor is discussed in a recent issue of the
American Electrician "by Dr. Bell, and
the conclusion arrived at that the con
ductivity of the earth is so meager that,
except in the case of very high voltages
or very minute currents, it is quite in
significant in practical affairs; in rail
way return circuits the earth return
does much more harm than good; for
power service the earth is useless as a
return, and in telegraphy alone does it
appear likely to serve a permanently
useful purpose. This is in marked com
parison with the idea formerly preva
lent and used in the calculation of
ground return,circuits that the conduc
tivity of the earth is infinite.'

Paralyzed for Years.
A CARPENTER SPENDS MANY
MONTHS IN BED PHYSICIANS
"DO HIM LITTLE GOOD.
PARALYSIS CAME FROM A FALL,
From the Express, Los Angeles, California.
Just think of ' a busy, hardworking
man paralyzed in the midst of his ca
reer, and rendered useless.
That was the misfortune that befell
James A. Jones, of 1002 Alpine street,
Los Angeles, Cal., in September, 1891.
Mr. Jones was born in the state where
many of the presidents come from
Ohio, but spent the greater part of his
life during his younger years in Iowa,
Jrom which place he went to Colorado,
and in 1882 . came to Los Angeles. It
was a small place then, before the
boom came along and pushed us for
ward a century in the road of progress,
and Mr. Jones followed his occupation
of carpenter and builder. While at
work in September, 1891, he received a
fall which jarred him considerably and
he became confined to his bed. Shortly
after he lost the use of the lower part
of his body entirely, and his legs be
came a dead weight. A plaster cast
was put upon him by the doctors and
they worked over him and did- all
things possible to assist his recovery.
But he remained in the same condition.
In April, 1893, he began to take Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.
The following June he noticed that he
could move his toes, and July 4, 1898,
he got up out of bed and later in the
month was able to walk - without
crutches. Shortly after, still continu
ing the pills he went to work at his
trade at Whittier's, where he sustained
a fall and again injured himself and
had to go to bed and the dread paraly
sis came on again. Again the doctors
worked with him but without relief,
and he once more began to take Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. The dootors had
given him bromides and iodides, but
without effect. Again the pills drove
the paralysis into the background. He
said "I took them in accordance with
directions, and in connection with the
use of cold sponge baths', found they
were exceedingly beneficial. "
Mr. Jones is now able to walk again,
and he feels that the pills are the only
thing that has done him any good. In
this connection he said: . "The doctors
who have treated me have done every
thing in their power, but without
effect, and it does seem marvelous that
paralysis should be overcome by these
little pills. But that haB been my ex
perience. If anyone doubts it let him
write to me or come and see me and I
will tell them the story.;'
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in
a condensed form, all the elements nec
essary to give new life and richness to
the blood and restore shattered nerves.
They are an unfailing specific for such
diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial
paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, . sciatica,
neural iga, rheumatism, nervous head
ache, the after effect of la grippe, pal
pitation of the heart, pale and sallow
complexion,' all forms of. weakness
either in male or female. .Pink, Pills
are sold by all dealers, or will be sent
postpaid on receipt of price, 50 cents a ,
box or six boxes for $2.50 (they are
never sold in bulk or by the 100),' by

That is, a perfect man, the fellow who feels
himself above other men in those vital ele
ments that you must have to make man
hood complete. Did you ever see him? It
is one of man's faults to be indiscreet, and
a man must be made different from the rest
of us who has not been. As indiscretion is
common, so is its sequel weakness, waste
of vital force, lost manhood. This is the
train of evils following early mistakes, and
few men are free from them in a more or
less degree. Hence the need of a natural
stimulant is widespread. The only true
remedy for this want of vital force is Elec

Their testimony simply goes to show
what New England's most vigorous ed
itor so aptly said in a )etter telling of
the benefit Paine's celery compound
had been to a, member of his family:
."Paine's celery compound is . not a

it is not a mere tonic; it is riot an or
