Mary Stuart's Watch. 1
' Mary Stuart made a fad of collecting
.jmepiec.es. Among those owned by
fier was a coffin-shaped watch In a case
)f crystal. Probably the most remark
ible one in her collection was the one
aeqneathed to Mary Seaton, her maid
f honor. It was in the form of a
ikull. On the forehead of the skull
was the symbol of death, the scythe
nd the hour glass.' At the back of
the skull was time, and at the top of
the head the- garden of Eden and the
trueiflxion. The watob was opened by
reversing the skull. Inside was a rep
resentation or tne mojv iamuy, sur
founded by angels, while the shepherds
ind their flocks, were worshipping the
new-born Christ. The works formed
t1in hrni Tin. while the dial-nlate was the
palate.. She also possessed another
ikull-shaped watch, but it'isnot known
what became of it.
' Settling; the Bridegroom.
It takes a bright woman to rebuke
mother woman's rudeness, a general
statement borne out by the following
, story: A lady entered a railway train
nd took a seat in front of a newly
married couple. She "was scarcely
Beated before they began to pass re
marks about her. Her last year's bon
net and cloak were fully criticised, with
more or less giggling on the bride's
part and there is no telling what might
have oome next if the lady had not put
1 sudden stop to the conversation by a
bit of strategy. She turned her head,
oticod that.the bride was considerably
older than the groom, and in the
smoothest of tones said:
''Madam, will you please ask your
ion to close the window behind you?"
The "son" olosed hia mouth and the
bride no longer giggled.

Three Women Relieved of Female
Troubles by Mrs. PLnkham.
From Mrs A. W. Smith, B0 Summer
St., Biddeford, Me.:
, for several years I suffered with
various diseases peculiar to my sex.
Was troubled with a burning sensation
across the small of my back, that all
gone feeling, was despondent, fretful
and discouraged; the least exertion
-tired me. I tried several doctors but
received little benefit. At last I de
cided to give your Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound a trial. The ef
fect of the first bottle was magical.
Those symptoms of weakness that I
was afflicted with, vanished like Vapor
before the sun. I cannot speak too
highly of your valuable remedy. It is
truly a boon to woman." .:
From Mrs. Melissa. Phillips, Lea
In g-ton, Ind., to Mrs. Pinkham:
"Before I began taking your medicine
I had suffered for two years with that
tired feeling, headache, backache, no ap
petite, and a run-down condition of the
system. I could not walk across the
room. I have taken four bottles of the
Vegetable Compound, one box of Liver
Pills and used one package of Sanative
Wash, and now feel like a new woman,
and am able to' do my work."
From Mrs. Mollis E. Hekbel, Pow
ell Station, Tenn.: v '
. "For three years I suffered with suchfc
weakness of the back, I could not
perform my household duties. I also
had falling of the womb, terrible bearing-down
pains and headache. I have
taken two bottles of Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound and feel
like a new woman. I recommend your
medicine to every woman I know." ;
CRISIS WAS REACHED.
lodge Day Made Positive Demand!
N . 1 on Spain. .
London, Oot. 19. A dispatch to the
London News Agency from Paris says:
"Joday the 'confeience reached a
crisis for the first time. Judge Day
presented the demands of the American
commission in threatening words. He
Baid that delay was the only possible
object obtainable by ' the persistent
Bfforts of the Spanish commissioners to
saddle the United States with the Cu
ban debt, and would be tolerated no
longer, as the United States . would
neither assume nor guarantee any part
of the debt. '
"The Spaniards replied that this
placed Spain in a position of repudiat
ing or of reduoing the face of the Cuban
bonds from 50 to 60 per cent, paying
only half the stipulated interest on
reduced value. Before they would
adopt either atlernative they would sur
render to the United States the entire
Philippines. . . '
. "Judge Day responded that the sur
render of the Philippines would proba
bly be demanded, irrespective of the
Cuban' or any other debt.
"This, to the Spaniards, the first in
timation of the intentions of the Unit
ed States as to the Philippines, resulted
in a whispered conference, followed by
a request for an adjournment in order
to communicate with Madrid. Judge
Day said that President . McKinley had
instructed him to demand the entire
surrender of Porto Rico, and the deliv
ery of every town to the United States
officers before midnight, together with
the evacuation of Havana on or before
November 1, when the United States
would be at the gates of the city ready
to take possession.
"There was no alternative offered in
the case of either of these -demands;
the session consequently ' was very
brief." '. - ' .
DEATH IN THE STORM.
Pitiful Fate of a Young , Boy Neat
' Denver, Oct. 19. A speoial to the
Rocky Mountain News from Florence,
Colo., says: On Saturday William Lei
lin and his 10-year-old boy came to
Florence, from their borne, six miles
from Florence, to do some trading.
After spending the day about town, at
6 P. M. they started home in their
wagon. It was raining when thev left
town, but when out about five mi lee
the rain turned to a blinding snow
storm. The father lost his way, and
wandered about among eorub pines and
Jn the hills all night. The wagon and
team was abandoned, and an effort wai
made to reach home on foot.
As the night wore on the little fel
low beoame cold and numb and froze to
death in his fathei 'a arms. The father
managed to keep alive by walking, un
til he could walk no more from numb-1
ness of limb.' Daylight broke, and Lei
lin knew he - was not far from borne,
but was unable to walk. At 9 o'clock
his cries were heard by his1 wife, who
went to his rescue. Neighbors' were
summoned and the old gentleman was
assisted to his home, bathe was so near
dead that he could not give an intelli
gent account of the bight's wander
ings, but the dead body of the boy told
a pitiful story of a lack of sufficient
olothing to keep him warm. He wore
knee pants and a small coat, but no un
derwear nor outer coat. His shoes and
slookings were almost completely worn

The question to what extent the

affect the decay (caries) of teeth has of
late been studied in several quarters.
Statistics have been colleoted by Rese
in several looailties in Bavaria and by

vealed the interesting fact that the
extent of decaying teeth bears a definite
relation to the hardness of the water;
in other words, to the quantity of cal

through which the water passes. The
harder the water the better the teeth ;
the smaller the quantiiy of these salts
the. greater the decay of the teeth.

Women and the Wheel.
From the Qazctte, Delaware, Ohio.
The healthfulness of bicycle riding
for women is still a disputed question
between eminent physicians and health

Used in moderation it surely creates
for women a means of out-door exer

Reed, 885 Lake street, Delaware, O. ,
may point a moral for parents who,
like Mr4 and Mrs, Reed, have experi
enced some concern; for their daughters
who are fond of wheeling.. In the fall
of '96 Miss Bertha, who had ridden a
great deal, began to fail in an alarm
ipg manner. She grew steadily paler
and thinner, and it appeared she was
going into consumption. Rest and
quiet did-her absolutely no good. A

that rate for two weeks. He was satis

steadily wasting condition that she was
suffering from anaemia or. a bloodless
condition' of the body, .'she became
extremely weak, and could not stand
the least noise or excitement. In this
condition of affairs t jy were reocom
mended by an ; oM friend
to ' get 1 some of that famous
blood medicine, Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People. They did
so, and almost from the first dose Ber
tha began to improve. She continued
to take the pills and -Was by means. of
