Mrs. Piaknam's Explanation of the Unusual Number of Deaths and Prostrations Amomg Women. Thereat heat plague of August, 1S96, was not without its lesson One could not fail to notice in the long lists of the dead throughont this country, that so many of the victims were women in their thirties, and women tetween forty-five and fifty. The women who succumbed to the protracted heat were women whose energies were exhausted .by sufferings peculiar to their sex; women who, taking no thought of themselves, or who, attaching no importance to first symptoms, allowed their 'emale system to become run down. Constipation, capricious appetite, restlessness, forebodings of evil, vertigo, languor, and weakness, especially in the morning, an itching- sensation which suddenly attacks one at night, or whenever the blood becomes overheated, are all warnings. Don't wait ao long to build up your strength, that s now a positive necessity! Lydia E.

SENATOR MASON, of Illinois, who wt* such an. ardent advocate of war with Spain, was robbed ot »4,000 worth of jewelry and other valuables last night. It Is supposed that the Spfc&iards did It. He can get re s on them by going to war. " I have taken Lydia E. Pink-ham's Vegetable Compound and think it is the best medicine for women in the world. I was so weak and nervous that I thought I could not live from one day to the next. I had pro- lapsus uteri and leucorrhoea and thought I was go- in"- into consumption. 1 would get so faint I thought ,J would die. I had dragging pains in my back, burning sensation down to my feet, and so many miserable feelings. People said that I looked .like a dead ^. -woman. Doctors tried to cure me, but failed. I had ^ riven up when I heard of the Pinkham medicine. I lot a -bottle. I did not have much faith in it, but thought I would try it, and it made a new woman of the land to try it, for it did for me what Baker's Landing, Pa. TEE rumor that a battle had been fought off the west coast of Hayti between Sampson's squadron and thi Spanish fleet, is not verified by late reports. It seems that the Spanish fleet is lost again. The latest repor Is that It has gone back to Martinique to coal. WHAT progress could be expecte of * nation in which 15 per cent o her people can neither read nor write. In Porto Blco, out of a population of something more than 800,000 there tie 700,000 who can neither read nor write. The proportion of illiterates is nearly as great in Cuba and in Spain It is not much better. IT i« now understood that Judge McConnell will have a solid delegation from Oass county in the Eleventh district congressional convention to be held in this city tomorrow. Steele's friends in this county fought under cover. They made some show In the Second ward of this city, but were beaten by a vote of 31 to 27. The truth is that certain Republicans, who have been shown favors by Major Steele,had promised him some votes from this county, but will be unable to deliver the goods. This puts them in rather a humiliating predicament. They can now "bushwhack" on the oattide for Steele. They will "back-cap" McConnell. MAJOR STEELE has played havoc with his opponents in the congres- eional contest. He first d rove - N Icholson out of the race through a well executed strategetic movement. Then he disabled Stutesman in an attack from the rear, knocking oft his rudder and leaving him to drift to the shore. And now Cowgill has sur rendered unconditionally and gives up cheerfully. Judge McDonnell, of this county, is the only hero left to fight the wily statesman from the headwaters of the Mlssissinewa. It has been an expensive campaign for Steele, however. It is said that it cost him »2,500 to knock out Nicholson. It cost less to disrupt Stutes man's forces and Cowglll's friends be-pacified with patronage. RELIGIOUS THOUGHT. Gemg of Ttnth Gl~««ea from the Teachings of All Oenominations. Sadly is the grace of humility lacking in the world about us, sadly is it lacking in the church of God.—Dr. George H. Combs, Christian Church, Kansas City. . Proof of loyalty. To prove our loyalty to our country time, labor, wealth and life must be lost sight of when sacrificps are demanded from us.—Rev. H. B. Lasker, Kabbi, Boston. Duty of Christians. It is for the Christian church and Christian people to be true to their mission as creators of public sentiment.— war in behalf of suffering "humanity in Cuba. The duties, however, of those who remain at home ought to be equally recognized. The first duty is to give earnest and loyal support to our government and its officers and frown down all efforts to chill and discourage those who have the conduct of the war.—Rev. D. C. Milner, Armour Mission. Chicago. Main Secret* of Huppineas. Happiness is most often found where there is perfect confidence. THe two go hand in hand. The wife should be careful of her husband's best wishes, should aid if need be in his financial arrangements as far as possible; should make him know she has his interest at heart, and that whatever concerns him, wheth CARE OF JEWELRY. to Pr«««r»« and Keep Brilliant cion* Stonefl. Diamonds, tbe hardest of all minerals, are less trouble and more easily cleaned than any of the other jewel favorites, A thorough scrnbbing of tepid water and soap with a good bristle brush, and then completely covering tha jewel in every part, while wet, with jewelers' sawdust, which is allowed to dry. There is a deeply rooted fear of spoiling pearls by getting them wet. This is an unfounded apprehension, for whole pearls are practically impervious, The pearl, slowly secreted by shellfish at tbe bottom of tbe sea, deteriorates when brought into contact with acids. It can be dissolved in vinegar, and rings containing pearls should always be removed before even the ordinary lotions for softening and whitening the bands are applied. Turquoises, as they are mined and sold today, are impervious to external effects and retain tbe beauty of their luster and coloring for years. If, after long and incessant wear, they become scratched, they can be polished at small expense and with perfect satisfaction. Sapphires, 'emeralds and rubies require little caution. They neither fade nor turn color and are not easily scratched and respond quickly and pleasingly to an occasional cleansing with water and the immersion in jewelers' sawdust. The shimmering, fascinating opal is the most sensitive of all minerals, equally fearing excessive heat and cold. An undue and long continued exposure to the warmth of tbe suu, by dilating the minute particles of air inclosed in the opal, canses it to lose its color, and intense cold produces cracks on tbe surface of tbe gsm which sometimes nearly extinguishes its charming rainbow tints. A little alcohol or ammonia tssea in solution with water improves tbe brightness of any jewelry. The care of enamels depends much upon tbe delicacy of their construction, and beyond a tepid soapy bath, rinsing and sawdust drying will require no other cleaning, unless the gold work needs a thorough polishing in the hands of » jeweler. _ __ _ __ of peerless Prince Five-Gent Gi£ar« i« It ahrays bums with i CLINGING WHITISH- CRAY ASH.

Patriotism is noble, but Christianity has discovered' 'that there is a nobler "ism" than patriotism, and that is hn- manitarianism.—Rev. Dr. David Gregg, Presbyterian, Brooklyn. Belief and Unbelief. Men make light of belief and unbelief. God does not, because they express the attitude of the son! to all that is truly vital and eternal—Rev. William Po-wick, Methodist, Manaynnk. MeekneM of Character. Meekness as an element of character is the possession and exhibition of. calmness and gentleness of spirit under circumstances of provocation.—Rev. J. W. Riddle, Baptist, Philadelphia. How to Forget Doubts. Many a man who is haunted with doubts would forget all abont them if he were to engage in some active service for the Christ of humanity.—Rev. George L. Mackintosh, Presbyterian, ndianapolis. Pushing • Reform. There is as much devotion to principle in abstaining from pushing a reform oo scon ae there is in fighting for it. •when the time is ripe. Reforms are ike apples—they are unhealthy when green.—Rev. Dr. Crane, Methodist, Chicago. Progress of Human Blesslne. Behind all the struggles of humanity for better things, behind the world's dreams of a golden age to come, has been one supreme inspiration of goodness which compels seeming evil to work out the progress of human blessing.—Rev. George A. Thayer, Unitarian, Cincinnati. Dsucerons Experiment. It is a dangerous experiment, for men to reject Christ, in this world .-with tha hope of having a second chance after death. The way of salvation has been made plain and simple, and God is calling to men to repent of their sins and accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour.— Rev. Paul C. Cromick, Methodist, Cincinnati. Tne UniTer»al Kellflon. The partial in religion is giving way to the universal in religion, and tha universal religion is to have its increasing number of teachers and is to build Unchurches, in which uo man will be stranger and the gates thereof will not be closed by day.—Rev. Jenkin Lloyd Jones, Church of the Future, Chicago. Safety In Obedience. Our safetv is in our obedience to God, in constant watchfulness and fidelity. I do believe that there are forces o1 evil ever near us, and possibilities 01 woe. I believe that there is a force nearer and mightier than the devil anc all the forces of hell If we trust and obey God the Father, we shall be safe from all the possibilities of woe.—Rev W. T. JPerin, Methodist, Boston. Frochinc to Men. Onr great hope when we stand before a congregation of men is that they have a conscience.

Goodnegg and Evil. Goodness will never corrupt the world; evil does, and evil must be overcome of good. Every life then is singing its song of hope or _ despair. Every life is helping or hindering. Every character tells its message of virtne-aud exerts an influence for good, or its message of vice and exerts its influence for evil. Every man is a savor of life unto life or of death unto death. Every soul makes the world better or worse.—Rev. R. P. Johnston, Baptist, St. Louis. Coming Rational Religion. Supematuralism will be superseded by rationalism only as its followers have the genius to affirm the reality and the sovereignty of the ideal and extend their optimism into the actualities of human life. Unitarianism does this. It gives rational ground for the ex- tremest veneration of great characters. It has faith in salvation by character. This coming rational religion will have its-banners, symbols, anthems, vows and festivals.—Rev. Theodore C. Williams, Unitarian, Oakland, Cal. An Odd Little Napkin Ring. An odd little napkin ring which is quickly made,, inexpensive and sells rapidly at fairs, is illustrated by The Standard Designer.

The method employed in British factories for cleaning velvet,, moqnette, Aubisson, etc., carpets is the simplest, as to means, conceivable. It requires great faithfulness; but, given a good carpet to start with, if done every six months it should- preserve the fabric in good order for 25 years. By this passing of a quarter of a cen- ury tbe colors will be faded, but they will have farted so beautifully as to be more grateful to tbe eye and better than ever fulfill the carpet's mission, which .s to be a background to the fnrniture. Have two large pans of water, one clear and tepid and tbe other hot and soapy, made so by shaving "white curd" ioap, say two ounces of soap to two gallons of water. Have plenty of perfectly clean, -white cotton rags, free from thread ends and lint. Take a square of the carpet at one time and wash the surface quickly with a clean rag and the soapy -water. Take up as much of the soiled water as possible. Then -wring out this cloth into a third pan of tepid water. Take tbe other pan' of tepid water and -wipe the soaped and clean surface well, being careful as possible to rub over, not rub in. Then wipe this with clean cloths nntil as dry as reasonable in so short a time. Proceed with the rest of the carpet until finished, guarding against any shadowy boundary lines by going back of each square as you continue. Change the water at every third or fourth square —more often if the carpet needs it.— San Francisco Examiner. A NOVEL .NAPKIN KING. •Jl lap one way.

When the ribbon ha« been laced through all the rings, it should be drawn rather tightly to form tbe whole into a circle, and the ends tied in a bow. Illinois Soldiers Reported 111. Washington, Ind..
