George Woldon Has LiVRd in York- Jail Maby Years. When a young couple runs away to get married half the world says: "How Romantic!'' the other half says: '' How silly!" ' But you can't tell either way. until the "honey-moon " is over. When this young couple get settled down to the regular hum-drum of life, they'll manage all right and fincl solid happiness in any case, if they have good hearts and sound health. AH depends on that. It's-wonderful how much health has to do with married happiness. Sickness affects the temper. You can't be happy nor make, others happy if you're ailing. When you find yourself irritable, easily worried, beginning to "run-down" it's because your blood is getting poor. You need richer blood and more of it. Your blood-making organs need to be vitalized by Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, It imparts new power to produce an abundance of the healthy, red corpuscles, and gives you a fresh supply of pure, rich mood. It's a blood-creator; it is for everyone whose blood is impure or in a poor, " run-down "-condition. It prevents the germs of disease from getting a hold on your systeni. Even after disease is settled on you, it is driven out by the blood-creating properties of the "Discovery."' It is a perfect cure for general and nervous debility, catarrh, malaria, eczema, erysipelas, scrofula and every form of blood - disease. It. is'nt called a consumption-cure but even consumption, — w.hich has its roots in the blood—is driven out by the "Golden Medical Discovery" if taken in time. The "Discovery" is the prescription of one of the most eminent physician* and medical writers in this country.

They bad just piissnd a sohool- honse, nnd finding it 110possible for the horses to face the storm, Mr. Sweet tried to turn around and go back to tho school, and soon found it impossible, as he could not tell from which way the wind was corning-, as it seemed to come from every point of the compass, from the heavens and from the earth. In that terrible storm it wns certain death to stop and possible cleiitb to-go ahead. The track had long- bince been lost, and the horses were going- through the fenceless country, no one knew where,, but they kept on traveling 1 until about midnight. The BEOV/ was no deep and the crust so hard that the horses found it almost impossible to move. Finally Ihcy stopped and could be urg-od no farther, and with a cry that wos almost human, one of them dropped dene! i.n Jiis traces. A fewmouien ts later tho other cnc lay down beside his mate, and txjo frozen and exhausted even for Us death strugj;' 6 died quietly under the drifting snow. Until dawn Mr. Sweet walked around the sleigh to keep the robea over.his perishing l&mKy. At daylight he Started for help, but when he reached the nearest house and attempted to thaw the ice from his face that lie might he able to speak las eyes swelled shut and lie was blind.for days. The family was rescued by a school teacher, who 'took the members in his sleigh to his home. Doctors were soon in attendance, and on February 1 Miss Sweet's bends were .amputated and the ne.xt day Orlo and Herbert had their legs taken oft below their ..knees.

He speaks and writes all of the modern languages and several of th-e classical. As a poet, musical composer flud author of political and historical works he has an enviable reputation. He is a great reader, nnd his .favorite books are all religious, philosophic and historical subjects. But nbove everything King Oscar is a poet. Unfortunately no English translation of his poetic-'ii works has been made, but in German and Italian they are widely read. Artists, pninters and sculptors have in king Oscar a great, admirer and a liberal patron, his private colJeetion of .paintings containing 1,000 works by the best Swedish and •A r.ia-n with no appflver.t symptoms o£ hisanivy lias elected lo spend Uie hist years of his lif'.i in jail. He is George. We 1 . Id on, 77 years old. Although lift lias not broken Uu> law hi any way, he has uever spi-nt 2-1. hours outside of Yovk- ville prison during the last ten years, ITe lia-v remained there constantly, will probably die there, arid eventually bft burk'd nt the expense of the city, soys theiVc'W York World. For 35 years, before t:il<ing up his permanent residence there, Welclon had been forming Uie,."prison habit," as the keepers term it. He began 25 years ago with n ten clays' sentence for intoxication. At the expiration of his term he was released, but WIIK soon back again on the same charge, when he got another ten <l:rj-s. Then began a series of arrests, imprisonments nnd releases. His sentences grew apace tin til. at last he was spending nine mouths out of the twelve in some one or another of New York city's district prisons or on BlackweJl's inland. Twice within u year he was sentenced to six months nud served his time. Wcl- don is not a vicious man or a dangerous drunkard. Liquor makes him top heavy, and he lies down to sleep on the curbstone as in a feather bed. In spite of his hard life, he does not look his age by SO years. Dissipation has undermined a naturally strong constitution, and now he is physically unable t- 1 do hard work. . Weldon is tall and spare, with astrng- llng growth of beurd. He is an unusually intelligent man. He was born in Colchester, Essex county, England, in lfc'10, but he ha? forgotten the exact da-te. He received a good education, nnd after leaving school became u shoemaker. He prospered and finally set np in business for himself. After his wife nnd two children diet! lie began to' drinlc and rapidly dissipated his fortune. Then he cunie to New York, where he readily secured employment at his trade and led a fairly decent life for ten years. ciiowu ritrscE OF Pneumonia. ' Mr§. A. J.

The British army bands use the hig'h pitch, the queea's reg-ulatlons runuinp as follows: ."In order to Insure uniformity throughout tdie regimentoj bands ^ the service the Instruments aire to be of tie'same ; .piteh as that adopted by the Philharmonic society: The Philharmonic'. society has.recent.ly decided to ,adopt\tlie lower.pi*ch', ; nnd, accordingly,, the' queen's regulations foreign artists, and the sculptures number £f)0. His private library is said to be one of the best in Europe. Xo breath of scandal has ever sullied hig home and reputation, and the Swedes may well be proud of their king. Queen Sophia, born a princess of Nassau, is of a very religious and charitable nature. Her greatest pleasure is to beiieflt others, and nil chai-itable institutions ,in Sweden and Norway have in her their most generous patron. With a roost pleasing aud courteous manner, plain in dress in her private life, and easy of approach, she ia p beloved and respected by the people over whom fate called her to rule. The crown prince is said to lack the attributes that have made his father so popular. He leans more toward a military regime, and is a great admirer of his relative, Emperor Wilhelm ot Germany, Austere and chilly in. his manner, he has never been able to arouse any enthusiasm among the Swedes. He is highly respected, but the popular love and devotion tb'at other members of his house have beeji the recipients «f from the Swedes will probably not be his. . King Oscar'* children ant} his grandchildren received their education in n large semipubiic school in Stockholm. Here they were treated just like ordinary children, walked .to the school unattended, carried their own snliool books, joined in tho boys', play just as ,the. other boys and in no wuy was their i;oyal'birth indicated. From the school they went'.to the Upsala university for a,continuation of their studies. -The -little grandsons of King Oscar are his pets, and when they are allowed to visit grandfather it is a holiday time : at'the royal.palace. The grandparents are therms much children as the little princes, and grandfather is famous with the Boys for inventing new plays. , The crown princess, mother of'the 'boys, is an invalid, said to be dying of 'consumption and has to remain n great p'nrt of ; the year in Italy and the south .of France. The care of the boys devolves almost entirely on the grandmother, Queen SopUa. ' . . ' •• '•.• .•' .Poor..riftjr. _.'•' . , >' .

Then he began to drink again, and finally wound up a voluntary life inmate in Yorkville prison. "Am I satisfied here?" he said in response to a Sunday World reporter's question. "Well, yes. It may seem strange to the outside world that a man would voluntarily live in jail, but this place is home to rj»e. I love the cells, the keepers are my friends and I pity the unfortunates whom fate sends here. "I da the light work of the prison," he explained. "I carry the prisoners' food to tliem. My food is the same as theirs. I sleep in a *ell just lifco any prisoner. T don't nsk,for anything. I am satisfied." There was pathos iu Weldon's voice. He.has no living relatives, but everyone connected with the prison has grown to like him. The keepers see that he is clotihed decently, and he more than makes up for his meals and lodging by the work he does around the prison. He is on omnivorous reader. He is perhaps the most lonely moil in the world. Weldon has lost all track of time. It does not matter to him what the. season of the year is, nor even what year it is. "I am here to stay until 1 die," he says with resignation, and so he does not /rather to keep track of nnroes of days or dates. His lost sentence for intoxication (the only crime lie has ever been guilty of) was three montha. He was sick, and when he got well he would not go away. He was too old to compete with younger men at his trade of shoeinaking, and,then he had lost hope and nmbition. . It umtcfed little, to him what he did so long u.s he had a place to sleep and chough to eat. So he stayed on nt the prieoii, where he expects to end his dnys. MUST GIVE UP THEIR WIVES. Effort to.Be AlAdo to AbollHh Polyffnraonll Practice! or ImlMnti. The Oklahoma courts have struck a puzzler in the Indian custom relating t» plural..marriagea. The law of Oklahoma is very severe on polygamists, and Indians on reservations are not exempt from its operation: The Kicka- pbos have''an average of five squaws each. The Chcyenncs and Arapalioes are nearly .all polygamists, as" are the Kibwas and Apaches, Commanches and Wchitos. . It is stated that the courts have 'decided to take action in the matter at ont;e..unless polygamous practices cease.
