The other vessel was not met, and then it was decided not to wait longer for the boat, but to take it in herself.

MISSING PEOPLE. The Great Mystery which Surrounds ) their Disappearance and what Cccomes of Them. "Scarcely a day passes that we do not read in the newspapers of some man or woman who is reported missing, and in the majority of cases these people forsake happy homes without any earthly reason for doing so, and their fate often becomes a mystery.- "The cause tf these disappearances has excited widespread discussion of Into, and sr-mo of our best novelists have founded thrilling romances on this strange subject. But no me has yet been able to find an answer to the question. 'What beeomes of these missing peopls ?' ' "Perhaps the best explanation of the mystery may be found in the words of a New York physician who is a keen observer. According to his theory, these peoplo arc sufferer?, from various disastrous maladies, from which they gain no relief. Their surroundings eventually become unbearable to them. I-.i their diseased imaginations they fancy everybody is an enemy, although surrounded by friends. Driven t. despair, they at last forsake their homes and become wanderers on the face cf the earth, or else which Is very probable commit suicide. "Any person who is not in perfect wealth is liable to meet with this terrible fate. Even those who fancy themselves strong, well and mentally sound may become unhappy, morose and despairing. The seriousness of these facts should cause every man and woman to stop, consider, and see if he or she is really well. There are so many dreadful diseases that come upon the system unaware, that show no symptoms, but ruin the life even before we know it. The worst of all troubles of this kind arises from urio acid poison, which, being in the blood, not only causes rheumatism, neuralgia and gcut, but often affects the mind or the vital organs. Now, the cause of uric acid in the system or in the blood is because the kidneys are either -too weak or too diseased to throw it from the system. When the uric acid is not dischargee! it remains in the blood, poisons the body and often the mind, and causes disease and too frequently death. "Is it not plain and simple, then, that in order to avoid moroseness, pain and often worse things, it is necessary to get rid of this uric acid? This can only be done by helping the kidneys, which may have been weakened, to throw it out and that quickly. "You, reader, who scan these pages, may be in precisely this condition and yet not realize it, but if you are aw-akened and realize the sense of these great truths, you must know that there is but one great and reliable discovery of the present day that can help you in such a case, and that is Wftrner's Safe Cure. All the columns of this paper could be filled with the grateful statements of men and women, not only in America but all over the world, who have been not alone assisted but absolutely cured by the use of this great modern, scientific remedy. It is pure and pleasant to take; it produces a prompt and agreeable effect, and it furnishes relief whenever used." . RAYMOND & VJKITCOr.lC'S TOURS. ALL TRAVELING EXPENSES INCLUDED, CAUFORfM.
