VTHT X8 HP rheumatism and neuralgia are to prevalent? this question has not been "ausfactorily answered, but it ii. certain that these disease* arc not only the most I'ninful but among the most common, and some member of nearly-ereojfcfanilly in the mud is the victim of one of these dread tormentor*. Ladies seetn to be peculiarly liable to neuralgic attacks, which* la th« form of neuralgic headache, jSaln la •£»; buck, or nervous pains are of constant oc- cun-ence. JSfotuntil the ducovery of Athlo- plioros had any remedy been found for mther rheumatism, neuralgia or nerroui headache, and they were generally con- reded to be incurable, but Athlophoroi has been proved to bo not only a certain cure for these diseases, in all their varied IwiiiH, but a iafe remedy. If, in the use oi Athlophoros, the bowels are kept/r«/u open, its success u certain, and to aid this, Athlophoros Pills are recommended, winch, while providing the necessary cathartic, will be found to be a valuable aid to the action of the medicine. Athlo- plioros is no experiment, it has been tested , aim lias proved it* wonderful efficacy. The Athlophoros Pills were originally prepared as a remedy for use in connection with Athlophoros. for rheumatism and neuralgia and kindred complaints. Used in connection with that remedy, they are a certain cure for either of these very common and distressing diseases. They have also been found to bean in valuable remedy for any and all diseases arutingfrom vitiated blood or general debility. They are especially valuable for nervous debility, blood poisoning, dyspepsia, distress after eating, headache, constipation, loss of appetite, and all stomach or liver troubles. For diseases^ of women they are invaluable. These pills are perfectly harmless and may be safely adults or children. Testimonials of those who 'have been . cured will be sent free on application. Every druggist should keep Athlophoros and A.thlophoros Pilh;, but where they cannot be bought of the druggist, the Athlo- phoros Co., 112 Wall St., New York, will send either (carriage paid) on receipt of • regular price, which is $1.00 per bottle (tr Athlophoros and 50c. foi Pills.

A new scieutinc method of sinking wells, as operated by the American Well works, Aurora, Ills., Is illustrated In the picture here given. ;, : ,-'It consists simply of putting a saw on to a largo gas pipe mid connecting to thoiippur end a water swivel that foix^ps water into the pipe. The pipe is then put into a machine suitable for tho use and is made to revolve. As It cuts a path into the earth a stream of water passes down through the casing or tube to be sunk, and washes away the cuttings that are made by the saw at the lower end. The mud, wa- tor find cuttings co me; up on the out Ride of tho casing, and the pressure of the water prevents the hole from caving upon tho pipe that is sunk.. When ono length has been sank down, say twenty feet, another ono is ingeniously connected in such a manner that the stream ot water WELL SINKINO A.P- is continually run- PARATVS. • ning down the :asing and coming up on tho outside. In this way 500 feet of seven, inch, pipe, it is claimed, has been sunk in the cltyofXew Orleans in-forty-eight hours.; ;; : Since this invention, there 'have been numerous wells made in the southern states, where artesian water could not be obtained jy other methods. It will readily be scan that, in sinking a well in thjLs manner, the flnb material is washed away and the coarser left 'or tho water to percolate through and roach ;o the point in the bottom to flow over of its own accord or to be pumped l>y the general method* employed. tiohthatno purely teftluuxkd race fan* m* been diaeovw'euY Uthobgli ro ppr cent of the InhablfanU of the Punjab nso tbo left hand by prefersnoe, 4s part of the Hottentots a ™ Africa.

PHV8IOL06Y AND ltes, or Xilghtnlugr Holes. The .disasti-ous results so often attendant upon an;electric discharge'have been dwell upon since time immemorial; but the peculiarly interesting, though usually harmless effects,.produced by lightning in loose sand, are rarely alluded too. In the sand the usual esult produced is that of fusion, whereby rail, glassy tube oC variable diameter and ength is produced, the interior of which is a rue amorphous glass, quite smooth, while exteriorly it is roughly granular and great)} corrugated. Such'are called fulgurites or ulmmation tubes in English, while, to th< Herman and French they are known as Blitz- rohren and tubes fulminaires respectively. FtTLOTOlTS TCBBB. The fulgurites shown in the cut are from material received from Union Grove, Ills., and now in the collections of tho national museum. These are described in detail in Popular Science Monthly, from which scription it appears that these materials represent one of the most extensive finds of fulgu- rites yet noted in this country. The locality where this occurred is the top of a sand hill some ilfty feet square, Several sets or pairs of tubes woro found here, but a few inches apart, together with several small, irregular musses of fused material, tho largest of which woigbml several ounces. The largest tube found was'about three nnd a half inches in diameter, but was too frail to remove. The plate shows the characteristic forms. Fig. 1 represents a portion of tube of common form. Fig. li is peculiarly striking with its bulb like enlargement. Fig. y represents a cross soctlou of tube of .characteristic form. Fig. 4 shows holes fused by lightning in sheet copper, and resembling fulgurite tubes in outline. One of these tubes was traced into the sand for n Jistiinee of alxmfc seven feet The results of a comparatively recent analysis of both the fulgurite glass and tho sand in which it was formed makes it upjieur that the glass was not pure quart/, glass, although it showed itself to bo richer in silica than the sand from which It originated. The conclusion arrived at is that the composition of the fulgurite glass Is dependent entirely upon the conducting power of the various mineral constituents of tho swul, regardless of their fusibility; that thii glass, showing a larger proportion of silieii than the sand in which it forms, poiuU to the fusion of the siliceous (L e., the quartz) grains, in preference to tlw feldspathlt' and ferruginous; hence, that tin quart/, grains were poorer conductors of the electric ttuld than were the otbors. luiluoucfl ot Elm-trlcItT on HooU.

Notwlthetnndlng the tboivugu Inyestiga- tlons during late yeain of the physlnlogy of digestion, authorities continue to differ on some important point*. One tolls us that the habit of chewing gum Is very prejudicial lw- cai|se it excites salivary glands so niiimtiirally that when called upon afterward to act in tlie mastication of food they eannoV i-espond as fu'ly as they shoukl. Aeain we aro Informed that perfect rest of all the organs is osseiillal t«i refreshing sleep, and that if food is taken just before retiring, and we go to sleep with a stomach moro or less full, the sleep will bo unsatisfactory and disturbed. On the other hand, authorities of Amherst college, lu instructions to students, recommoiid half an hour of sleep after dinner and supper, mid tho eating of n few Graham crackers just Iwforo retiring, when wakeful from bfaimvork, to draw the excess of blood from the brain to'ttio stomach. They also state that chewing gum daily before eating, aids the digestion ot food, by increasing the flow of fcallva and stimulates indirectly the secretion ot tho digestives juices ot tho smomach. Science, in commenting on these differing views, agrees that food is useful iu cases of sleeplessness, and,believes that maiiy a person has l»en kept awake from a mistaken whim that he must not eat at night. It is of opinion that a few Graham crackers can never do harm; but is doubtful as to tho benefits of chowirig gum upon ; : 'thq digestion, and would hesitate to recommend It without a guaranty of the composition of the gum used. - ' _••• : •• .- ;'•''. - .-. -. •' ' . Iniprovlnc tho Complexion. If women -would onj.v take better en re of their feet there would be fewer complaints of both muddy complexions and eruptions of the skin. Next; in importance, if not equal to it, after a healthful 'diet, comes care of tho feet. Not one woman in ten nas absolutely •warm, dry feet from October to May. Tho feet ought always to be warm, in .spite of weather, which means warm stockings frequently changed and stout, thick bojots' in cold weather. In addition to warmly clothing the feet try every-nlght,' just before retiring, dipping the soles of the feet iii cold water an instant, quickly rubbing dry with a towel ind afterward heating for a few minutes be- Toro the fire. By observing the above sug- jestions the circulation in your lower extremities will be good, all fullness of the head and palpitations of the heart will be relieved, ;he complexion, improved and health made better in many respects. QaKlight In the Nursery. Gas and parafflne lamps should not be used in the nursey. Such is tho opinion of a prominent physician, who adds that in almost every room where gas is burned a plant will droop and die. Children are like plants; they require, above all things, pore ah-, light and sunshine— not gaslight, but daylight, sunlight and as much of it as possible. In the nursery there should bo no heavy hangings to obscure the light nnd hold dust, and no gas pipes. Gas injures in many ways. Its light is too strong for a' babe's e3 - es; it absorbs all the pure air in the room before the child can get a chance to inflate its little lungs with oxygen; its heat is enervating, and there is always the danger of leakages; These leakages may be so small as to be imperceptible, but largo enough to bo injurious to the health.' _ _ The Necessity for Two Kara. A St Ixmis physician explains the necessity for having two ears, by the fact that sound is always heard more distinctly by one ear than by the other, and In this way it is located. A man with but one ear, says this authority, can hear just as well as the man with two, but ha can riot locate the sound.

By Taking three bottles of this medicine I have been entirely cured. My eight has been restored, and there is no sign of inflammation, sore, or ulcer in my eye. —Kendal T. Bowen, Sugar Tree Bidge, Ohio. ~ My daughter, ten years old, was afflicted with Scrofulous Sore Eyes. During the last two years she never saw licht of any kind. Physicians of the highest standing exerted their skill, but with no permanent success. On the recommendation of a friend I purchased a bottle of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, which my daughter commenced taking. Before she had used the third bottle her sight was restored. Her cure is complete. —W, B. Sutherland, Evangelist, Shelby City, Ky. • Ayer's Sarsaparilla, Prepared by Dr. J.C. Ayer& Co., Lowell, Mm. Bold by all nrogglita. Pric« $1; alz botllM, |£.
