I was sick for many years with a bad case of diabetes which made me very thin and weak. 1 also suffered much loss of sleep, having to get -up so many times at night to pass urine, and also great annoyance from thirst thai water would not satisfy. A few months ago ! began to follow your instructions in regard to die and to use ' . Dr. J, H. McLean's Liver and Kidney Balm. It is a grand medicine. I used three bottles, and, thanks be to God, am a w» man again. I have not felt so good or taken more interest in life^for many year. You are at liberty to publish this if you desire, as 1 would be glad to be the means of calling th'- attention to victims of diabetes to a remedy that svill give them ? elief.

CLEAN HOUSE WITH SAPOLIO A UTE INDIAN LEGEND. nliiK Some Ccoffrnplilnil Fmiture* of tho Western Country. Long' years ago the forefathers of tho Utes lived near a vast warm Inke north- j sast of the Big river (Colorado). t Snakes as long 1 as 100 lodge poles were Tilentco-us in this lake. The country •k-as full of big trees, big deer, and big •sxcn with white horns. One day ail tho 5>I(j oxco began to roar together, anil JKcy raised such a steam from their nostrils that.the eartli tottered and tre-mbled aud the sun was hidden. 'Then suddenly the warm lake.fell and 'continued lining for the space of three ' moons, and then became .so low that •'Jhe Indians saw it not again. The big lake of warm water had been drained away. It had gone out through Bio mountains by the present canyon 'of-.Grcen river, and of the Big- river. •Tli'e old bed in the Toom-pin-to-weep is -where- the "warm lake waters were dra'meO. Next, all the big deer and thn 'tig" uxen with white horns wandered eastward and perished from cold or by •itc arrows of the Ute hunters. Soon after a.big flood formed Grand River canyon. After this cnme a raee of small people whobroughtsecdcorn of. a small Aind, called Chiciuito maize. They also •brought, skin cnnoes. They had silver and gold in abundance, and iron tools which they had gathered in the .•mountain* to the northeast. Thc.se little people were almost tvhite. They built stone houses in tho cliffs and cultivated corn, beans and pumr.kins. They taught the Utes low 'to make spears and bow*. Some big red Indians came over from the northeast and drove oft the little people, who went, south. The big red men also went away. These were the Apaches. Navaios, Kiowas. Down among these tribes were found the big oxen with white horns, and ; thc srram. Sagarios (alligators.) By-and-by the comifrry became dry and cold, and only •the Utes were left on the Cig.river and its branches. Then melted rocks were poured out and the conct-ry was left desolate.—harper's RoundJI'ablo. ANOTHER ICE PERIOD. A Predicted Ki-.tult of Cultlns tho lHthinn» of l»iiniini». "Tbe best scientific authorities predict dire effects from the cutting of a canal through either the Isthmus of Panama or Tehuantcpee. The late Seor-e R. Marsh said of this that 'a new ice period might be occasioned by the withdarwal of so important a source o* warmth from the northern /ones, j-nd Sir John Herschel wrote: 'Were the Isthmus of Panama broken through •there is no doubt that the whole climate of-our island (Great Britain) would undergo a most notable detcrioation. The sum of $0,000,000 has been voted iy tho legislature of the state of New Torlc for improving the Erie canal system; tho Hcnncpin canal has had $1,200,000 spent on it, and work has stopped until 1 , new appropriations can be made, ilatt Quay is using his influence for the construction of a ship canal from Pittsburgh to Lake Erie, to cost $16,000,000, ajri.-a-.ship canal from Philadelphia to Ke«r York, besides advocating, the ex- p^mJitnre-of $50,000,000 in canaliEing the Ohio-and: Mississippi rivers. One of the most stupendous of these engineering •works-is-the Chicago drainage canal, now in. progress, which, is to cut the 'divide' which bars the way'between Chicago and' the Mississippi river.

JJeferringr t.o Mr. Jlohl-Smith, of Chi- ctifi-o, Senator Allison said that, it wa.« well known that one ot the artists' committee, Mr. St. Caudens, .was nn open and avowed enemy of M-r.

Senator Allison also said that the final award had been made by the secretary of war, the general of the nrniy, the president of the Array of the Tennessee (Gen. Dodfre), Gen. Henderson, Gen. John \}'. Noble and Col. Cabell. Senator Ilawley (rep., Conn.) also opposed i.iie resolution. What he favored was a popular statue of Gen.

If the session, however, be conspicuous by reason ot Its brevity and the limited number of important laws enacted, it resulted in the Introduction of a larger number of bills in the liouse than durlr.g any similar period fora-quarter of a century.

After careful consideration, a concurrent resolution was reported, tor wlilch was subsequently substituted, in conference, the senate resolution expressing the sympathy of the United States with the insurgents, recognizing their belligerency and culling upon the president to use his good offices to secure the Independence of the Island. Measures for which there lias beer, a widespread demand tflat have passed the house and will probably receive consideration from the senate next session, Include the bankruptcy bill, the McCall bill, providing an educational test for Immigrants, the labor commission and labor arbitration billa and the bill simplifying the rules ot the pension office so as to facilitate the adjustment of private pension cases.

Up to Saturday there had been Introduced a total of 3,201 bills moro than were Introduced during the wliole of the last congress. *The same rat'o of increase Is found In the flood of memorials and petitions that have been laid before the senate. Out of this array of proposed legislation but little has been done. The finance committee, to which was referred'105 different measures, has succeeded In getting through the senate but three of any Importance that have become laws—tho lllled cheese bill; the amendment to' the 'administrative, feature of the tariff act permitting express companies to nay the duty on packages valued at not more than J500 and deliver them to tho residence of the Importer direct, ana the bill to repeal the free alcohol clause of tho tariff law. Tho Dlngley bill came out of committee with a free coinage amendment which prevailed in the senate, and this proposition to Increase the vevenues through tariff duties has ever since been hung In tho air between the two houses, The bankruptcy and contempt of court bills, the two most Important measures emanating from the committee oh the Judiciary, were not even considered by the senate. The favorable report from the committee on privileges and elections for an amendment for the election of senators by' popular vote, became the text for many speeches that never sot beyond that indefinite stage. The senate committee on pensions shows a better record for accomplished results. Senate pension bills aggregating 1,020 wero referred to this committee. Similar billa aggregating 220 came over from the house. Two hundred and seventy senate bills were passed by tho genate, o£ which the houao passed but 50. On the other hand, the senate passed 1M of the house pension bills oufof a total of 220 passed by the house. Out of all this proposed legislation but 83 bills became laws, as follows: Senate bills without the ap-' Droval of the president, U; senate bills approved. 27'; house bills become a law without, approval, 8; house bills approved, 87; total. 83.

M Article* of Diet, The buds.nnd flowers of a very larfje number of plants are used as articles of food. Just how majiy oC these are so used ive rarely stop to consider, unless our attention is particularly called to the subject. Many persons have eaten salads of nasturtium flowers and leaves; a few have cultivated a taste .for a wilod of chrysanthemum' flowers. There are al) over t'he world trees, shrubs nud plants th;it. furuisli nutritious and ngreeable food in their blossoms. One of the most important oi these grows iu India. The tree is tho niabwn, and it-s blossoms a.re HJI extremely valuable article of food for tho .natives. These blossoms arc larg-e and abundant, and have a sweet, somewhat sickly odor and taste, and fall Xluring 1 1 he night.' In the morning 1 they are g-atJierod as soon as dayliffht a.p- pc.'irs, u.nd maybe eaten m.w or dried in tlic sun. The natives store, them as a staple iirticlo of food, ;ind so largely do they depend upon those trees that when the outlying tribes become insubordinate there is no punishmento! 1 command that will so quickly subdue toem as the threat of cutting- down these fa-cos. From Mve flowers of the, m:ih\va a Ktrosit; 1 spirit is distilled, and t.his is used hi large quantities by tho natives. There are ways of cooking: these dried flowers, although they are frequently eaten in tho natural stale. They arc also added to grains and other foods, ;).nd da.mUes and sweetmeats arc made of them. Four hundred pounds of (lowers ore. often gathered from one tree, and. as they are one of the leading- articles of diet, their importance can readily no seen. Another species of the -same tree prows malabnr. These •flowers and buds arc eaten raw or may be dried and roasted. Sometimes (.hey arc- made iuto jellies or rolled into balls, n.u.d in this state form an -article of barter, being exchanged for goods and edibles ot all sorts. The flowers of the Judas tree are made into salads and cooked in various ways.- The ilower buds are sometimes used cs pickles. The French. Canadians use the flowers of tlic red bud for salads aaid pickles. There is avarie-Vof ubntilon, the, flowers of which are used in Bra./)] :is a vegetable.

The caulU flower, as we eat it, .is nothing more nor less thaai an undeveloped flower, a.nd there is a plact in China- that bears a flower-stalk and bud which is greatly liked, and is said to resemble a very rich, ripe pear.

A Bronzed".Cltir.cn Tolls ot Jlln Tcoplo'i Courtlnyund Murrlaso Curtioms. 1 am convinced that our girls do not love conquest in a general way along the border land of men's hearts as c!o I lie white girls. TIence they appear far loss coquettish in their manner. I a.jn well settled in the belief that the nt- lachment so sacred: and holy wliicli is »kmtcd iu the heart of every true lover is of divine origin, being born ot the Great Spirit, and that it is purer in'the hearts of our native girls than in those of the civilized races. Our girls make confidants of their .mothers in their love alTairs. They are not laugihcd at, plagued, and tormented about the young men ns though .it were a-crime to "fall in love" (as white people caJHt) but on the contrary their love a'Ffa.irs are seriously considered and thoughtfully talked over between mother and daughter. Before our people became •jitixens their custom of marriage was as follows: • The mother of the maiden who had become attached to n young man wouid quietly have the matter talked over with his mother, and if the union was found agreeable to botli families according 1o an ancient custom the father and mother of the son would make up a large pack-age of presents and take them to the parents of the daughter and demand her 'for their son's wife, delivering the presents to them. If they accepted the gifts the girl was f.ikeii home with them. On entering their wigwam they would say to their son: "We have brought this girl for you a wife; take her, cherish her, bo kind to her, so loug as'you shaJl live," and they were then and there declared to be husband and wife. And yet, notwithstanding such simplicity of ceremony, scpai-ations seldom occurred. The manner in. which such marriages were consummated led many strangers to the transaction to believe that the parents of the boy and girl compelled them to marry agajnst their wish, when in fact the mothers had planned the scheme with the full knowledge, consent and desire of the children. As wives, our women are queens of the wigwam, aiifl cases are rare where they do not have the full confidence of their husbands. To their care and keeping the men give all their money und goods, which the women use as they think best to provide for the household.—Chiel Simon Pokagon, in Chan- tauquan, Gold Borse»hoes In Olden' Ttmc«.
