Anything that cures dyspepsia lifts about half the weight-of misery that crushes jnanfcind, — and womankind. , . The trouble with most of the so-called dyspepsia - cures, is tliat they don't cure. They give only temporary relief. Indigestion .usually extends ali through the digestive tract, from the stomach clear down to the large intestine ; the liver too is frequently involved in the trouble being torpid and inactive. For a thorough, radical, permanent cure you must have the whole digestive organism set right.—Not violently stirred -up, but regulated. Doctor Pierce'S Fleasant Pellets will do it. They stimulate the digestive juices of the stomach ; invigorate the liver and help it to actively l secrete the bile ; nnd act gently on the ' bowels to promote a regular healthy raove- , cicnt. • This menns a complete and last/ ing cure of digestive troubles, i The " Pellets " arc not a severe cathartic. They act on the bowels naturally and comfortably though surely. The dose can. be regulated to your needs, and when the "Pellets" have done their work they can be discontinued.

BICYCLE IN THE BULL KINO. attendance when he performed his daring feats, determined to beg-in a new epoch in the history of ^-he ring and to become the hero of it. He had. fought bulls on foot and on horsebnck from boyhood. He had killed everything in sight with horns in both ways. He'felt that he Would repeat the thing 1 blindfolded almost, but all that was an old story. So he made up his mind to introduce the bicycle In the ring. He knew well how to ride. There was no better performer in Mexico, and if he could kill a bull while seated on 'his steel steed he fell- certain of wearing a new crown of glory. The City of Mexico was touched here and there with flaming- red and yellow •posters from end to end. In big letters the bills told the story. It was a simple one. 'Manuel Garcia, famous for years as the bravest nnd shrewdest bull fighter of Mexico, was to meet the biggest and wildest animal seen in the capital city in the present generation. The great day arrived. Thousands gathered in the grcatomphitheaterand waited until the bovine giant was driven in. He looked big enough and mad enough to eat a man. One of the lesser lig-hts rode in arid prodded thebull once or'twice. Then a few darts were fixed in his quivering flesh nnd he r.ished mtidly up and down, while Manuel, - looking very handsome in his bright costume, rode in on a flittering bicycle. The bull eyed it nnd then rushed for it. Manuel dodged once. There was Dlmost a punctured tire, but the horn just missed the wheel and no damage was done... The bull -i^ect far pasttha. bicycle and, turning nt the other side' of the ring, watched it for a moment. Then the old fire camo back into his eye nnd he moved toward the uncanny SAL FAT.

"Indeed," 1 returned; "tb.ra.why.not aye tho gentleman arrested otonce?" "That, is impossible," he said—"quite impossible." . . . "May I ask why?" 1 sa.id, briskly. •-, "V : e*<ia.n not. do sr> been use there is not one jot of proof to justify such a.u arrest. Every man is searched nightly on leaving tho premises, and Miis -man wbom we suspc-ct. has undergone th» some treatment. Not a tenth of an ounce of the dust, lui's been found on his person on any occasion." "Then why suspect him?" I "asked, somewliat-un patiently. "There i-s no one else to-suspect. At our establishment we have sonie-Su as- eoying rooms, and eacli room has made up" its accounts perfectly with tlw: exception of the room in which young Rcnshaw is employed. Mon£h after month a considerable deficit -occurs there. "If it is your wish that I should take the case in hand. I will come and have a lool< nt your place arid employes without delay." Mr. Vincent shook hands with the chief, nnd I, having- made n few necessary preparations, set cut with the as- snycr for the scene of the trouble. As we wa.lk«d along, I said: "How much of the dust has been missed aJtogether?" I asked, after a short pause. ' "Close on 150 ounces. You seo, the robberies have been extending over some time now, and we are determined to either find the thief or discharge every man in our employ." "I hope that there will be no need for such an extreme measure," I remarked; "doubtless, wo shall-be able to bring home tho crime to the culprit." No more was said until we reached the assaying-rooms. Mr. Vincen-t opened tho door, and. bidding me fallow him, passed rapidly, into the room, No. 13, where the robberies had been committed. A young fellow was bending over a pair of hair scales as we entered. "Tliat is Renshaw"," whispered Mr, Vincent; "quite a youngster, as ' you see." \ Renshaw,' becoming aware of my presence, looked up. I am something of a reader of physiognomy, and reading that face, I distrusted it at once. / Mr. Vimcent was the first to speak. "Eenshaw," he said, in a low-voice "I am indeed grieved that I should have to speak to you as I am going to speak but there is no alternative. This gentleman is a private de-tective. 'He has come to inquire "into the mysterious disappearance of the gold dust from this room." 'Well," said Eenshaw, sulkily, "what has that to do with rric, sir?" 'I only hope for your, sake and your dead father's sake 'that it has indeed nothing to do with you," returned Mr, Vincent, sadly; ^'but tibe'facts are so black against you that I have deter mined to take up the. matter now and pierce the.' heart of. the mystery. Renshaw, it is not too late -to confess. -1 will not, be hard on you, nor will Mr. Leggctt." T have nothing to confess," he returned, moodily; "I have never taken anything- out of this room tli.it was not my own property." ' . you arc speaking- the truth, 1 ' said Mr. Vincent, not unkindly, "how do you explain that there is. such a remarkable deficit at the end of each month in the accounts'connected with Room 15? XoboTly besides yourself .is .a)-' lowed in here—to whom else can if 3 look for nn explanation? 'I cannot help you, sir," lie.-;*"<!, quietly. "I am very, sorry,, of C0 urse ' for what has. occurred, but it is;°utof ray power to,do anything in tie matter." ' . - . • . .'-•'. He paused, and then brt*e out. almost passionately: ..--•'• "Haven't you searched ia' nightafter night, as if I were a doc* laborer?' he said. "Surely, if I ,hfld st .°'" lrl an >"thing, it would, have >scnfou;:d on me then. What more dpy° uwant7 ' , .-" •We-wnnt to flnd tb" culprit, my boy,' that's all.

'My. answer is as before," he «aid,. slowly, -j'l know- nothing whatever, of, he affair. If I did I would say so; a» I don't, I' ciiTx't," . . ' - . .We left him alone, and I went to Ml-.. Vincent's private room, where we : spent ilf an hour in earnest consultation. "My opinion," I .said. "Is certainly. that -the youth is gnilty. and that .ho: has discovered some method, of hldln? hli '•poils.from the seercher* nigrbt after; i "But what method could he pomlbly-. JM?>''-asked Mr.:,Vlneent, putting W« hand to his forehead in despair; "noUiv ag escapes .the gearchers—abiorattar otiilngr." '"t.-:nrn not «o sure of that," I turneii, slowly; "searchers are only hu- mnri- after all, and possibly a most simple trick has deceived them. Is there any means by which Renshaw could bo watched.-froni a room above?" "Curiously enough," replied - Mr. Vincent, "(here happens to be » skylight in room 15. Perhaps you noticed it when,you were there? Through that -skylight yon would have ample opportunity of seeing how be employs himself." "Very well," 1 said, "it is no use of my watching him now, as he will, of course, be on his guard. In a week's time I will return. Meantime, you will, of course, keep your own counsel, and let no inkling as to my visit leak out in the pla.ce," . ' He. reassured ine heartily on this point, and then we shook hands and parted. A week later, I took up my position above the skylight, and watched the young assaycr closely. ' I must confess that he did nothing whatever of a suspicious nature. He pursued his work calmly nnd methodically, showing himself, to-be a very industrious workman. He had a habit or mannerism which seemed to me rather strange in so ycung n roan. It might be natural, or itmight be affected, but every now and again he would pause, jn his work, and pass his long, nervous hands through his bushy, auburn hair, as though trying to collect bis thoughts. It reminded me very forcibly of a mannerism, of Henry Irving, and I thought it possible that Renshaw might be a bit stage- struck, and had consciously or unconr sciously adopted the mannerism of the great actor. Throughput the day I stood in my uncomfortable position, eliciting nothing. At five o'clock the establishment closed, nnd I came down from my perch, and went straight to Mr. Vincent's room. "Mr. Vincent," I said, "my search has been useless so far. I am novv going round to Eenshaw's place of residence, and I want you to give me his address and invent some pretext for keeping him here for, say, hall an. hour while I pursue ray investigations." "Very well," he replied, promptly; and then, ringing a bell, he told the messenger who answered it to detain Renshaw and not let him go-until he had seen him. The messenger having- departed, Mr. Vincent wrote the address of the young man on a slip of paper. Jumping into a hansom, I drove as fast as tbc cab-would take/me'to 82, Acacia Villas, Rrixton, where Reashaw lodged. Arrived there I. presented my card, and having sufficiently overawed the landlady-by the mogic name of "detective," I'was ushered up into Renshaw's room and left alone. I hnd, of -course,. cautioned the woman against giving him the slightest hint when he came in of my visit • . Then I examined the room closely. In one of the drawers I found a collection of tradesmen's bills^ which proved .clearly thafmy ""bird"' ha'J-'b'ccn' go! " it for some time past. One of the b' .rather astonished.me, for it was f .bottle of aniline hair-dye. "What en-earth should he wan dye, his -fiair for?" -I pondered- .then it flashed upon me lilie a ligh stroke that Rensbaw's auburn ha!| never seemed to me to be quite. ine. But why should be desirj change its color? As I stood thinking, i heard on the stairs.
