Hits the nail on the head —one of Dr. .pierce's Pleasant Pellets. They do the right thing in the right way. They cleanse and regulate the liver, stomach and bowels —thoroughly and effectively, but mildly and gently. They persuade, rather than force. One tiny, sugarcoated Pellet's a gentle laxative; three to four act as a cathartic. They're the smallest, but the best. There's less to take, but there's more good in it, when it's taken. They're the original Little Liver Pill, and they've never been equaled. Sick Headache, Bilious Headache, Constipation, Indigestion, Bilious Attacks, and all derangements of the liver, stomach and bowels, are prevented, relieved, and cured. They're the cheapest pill you can buy, because they're guaranteed to give satisfaction, or your money is returned. Baby is Better SHE GOT SICK IN THE NIGHT WITH CBOtJP.

On. the board without is pasted a bilJ on •which the tricks of the fleas are illustrated. It is not at all cxirious that the professor's patrons move in the higher circles of society, at any rate it is a fact. The pk-bs say they have lots of them at home, and pass along- to less familiar attractions. The hig-her circles soy they never snw one before, and crv "Bow curious:" It is rumored that a famous politician dropped in to see the fleas one day, and watched the active little things go through their maneuvers with suppressed gusto, He did not say he had never seen one before, -but at every jump a smile suffused his countenance, and he said: "Curious, very curious." Then, as he was walking away, he was heard to mutter: "Ah, me! What a lesson in jumping-."

Wissmttnn is a soldier with a strong ta^te for exploration and conquest and biir ideas about building up a big German colonial empire. Wissmann was born at Frankfort-on- the-Oder in tS5:: and entered the German army in 1ST:'.. He had from his earliest youth evinced a taste for travel, and his 7vstless temperament chafed at the inaction of barrack life in time of peace. Hecoming acquainted with Dr. Pogge, the famous explorer, he offered his services to the East African Company in Berlin, and obtaining leave of absence from the army went to Africa. During the ne.xt three years he crossed the continent and did most efficient service. He returned to Germany in 1S83 and before the end of the year was on his way back to Africa with an expedition fitted out by King Leopold of Belgium, to explore the .basin of the Congo, lie mot his friend, Vogge, in Africa, and was with him when he died at St. Paul de Loan do. He explored the Congo basin, but the Ordeal broke down his health a.ncl he was obliged to spend some time at Madeira to recruit.* After returning to Germany he was sent to Africa again in 18SS .-and given authority from the German Government to'organize the force of black troops with which lie crushed the Arab power and added immense tracts of territory to Germany's possessions. It was he who- received Stanley and Emin Pasha at Bagamoyo on their arrival at the coast, aTid It was through him that Emin cast in his lot with the Germans. The Anglo-German convention handed over to England much of the territory acquired through Wissmann's exertions, and he has been since rather free in the expression of his disapproval. When the break came between Empei«or William and Prince Bismarck he rather ostentatiously sided with the ex- Chancellor, and the disfavor he then incurred has gone on increasing with the final result of his displacement by Emin Pasha. Emin is the first Hebrew ever given a prominent place in the,; German colonial or civil service. that of the I ITom lb4U to 1849 Mr. Bancroft was his expedi- -. Minister to Great Britain; in 1807 to their way Russia; in ISciS to the North German and killed, • Confederation, and in 1871 to the German Empire, from wliich post he was recalled, at his own request, in 1S74. It was through Mr. Bancroft's efforts during his ministry to Berlin that England, Germany and many other smaller states abandoned their claim to perpetual allegiance. In 1S40 Mr. Bancroft had published the third volume of his history, and volumes four to ten appeared between 1852 and 1S74, eleven and twelve appearing in 1S82. Revisions in six volumes were also 'published by him. Mr. Bancroft during his life was honored with election to the Berlin Roval Academy and the French Institute and both degrees from Oxford and Bonn. Many minor publications were isstied by him, but it is by his great work covering the early history of the United States that he is best known. The first volume of his "History of the United States" was issued, as has been said, in ISS4. The others appeared at irregular intervals,' his public services interft-ring more or less with the preparation of them. The third volume appeared in 1840. After the completion of his English mission, in 1840, Mr. Bancroft came to Xew York, where, he continued work on his history, and volumes four to ten appeared, between 1852 and 1S74. In 1S7U the work was revised and reissued as a centenary edition. Two more volumes were published under the title, "History of the Formation of,, the Constitution of the United States.'' Of the value of Mr, Bancroft's great -historical work it would be superfluous to 'speak. Edward Everett said of the early volumes: "It is one of. the ablest of the class which has for years appeared in the English language; it compares advantageously with the. standard British historians. As. far as it goes it does such justice to its noble subject as to supersede the necessity of any future work of the same kind, and if completed as commenced will unquestionably forever be regarded both as an American and as an English classic." Mr. Bancroft's pen did much other important work, and many of his best productions were in the form of addresses upon important occasions. His .recent years have been spent in Washington and in Newport, where his familiar figure on foot or horseback has been well known. He has always been an indefatigable worker, and his strict regularity of habits probably, accounts for his remarkable vitality. Macbeth's " pearl top " and " pearl glass " lamp-chimneys do not break from heat, not one in a hundred; they break from accidents. They are made of clear glass as well as tough, as clear as crystal. They fit the lamps they are made for. Shape controls the draft; they are shaped right. Draft contributes to proper combustion; that makes light; they improve the light of a lamp. But they cost a dealer three times as much as common chimneys, and, as they do not break, he is apt to be anxious lest they stop his trade.. Diminished sales and less profit are not agreeable to him.

"They have their happy hunting: grounds—and that's enough. I am of a secretive nature. Excuse me, but I see some—yes"—and here the professor put out his thumb and approached the writer's eoat with the eager subtlety of a Sitting Bull on the warpath. He then applied the magnifying glass, and \yith a look of disgust exclaimed: "It's <pot cue of my sort. It's from a dog. They" are too wild, and they sigh so for their old home that they languish and die." "Of a broken heart, I suppose?" The professor sighed and began to tell "how he trained his little pets. "The great difficulty," he v>-ent on, "is to prevent their jumping-. The first thing-!• do is to yoke them with this tiny chain of drawn wire, and then give them their own sweet way. They soon tire, and then I attach them to their own particular vehicle. We begin business at about one in the afternoon. They are all in and ready to perform at that hour, and are kept in harness till about ten. I then put thcfin into their little beds, as the song says, and carry them home. I then unyoke them, leaving the chains on. They are quite attached to them, I can assure you, and coil up in the corners of their little dwelling houses—flannel—and sleep after .'then- labors. Every other night or so I take the chains off, too." "And dinner?" "Here'it is," answered the professor. The professor bared his arm. MAJOR WISSMANN. George Bancroft was born in Worcester, Mass., October :;, 1800. After college preparation at Exeter,' N. H., and graduation tit Harvard, he went to Germany and studied for about three years, being given the degree of Ph. D. by the University of Gottingen. It was at this time that he selected history as his special study, having ns one of his reasons the desire to see if the observation of -masses of men in action would not lead by the inductive method to the establishment of the laws of morality as a science. In 1S22, returning to America, he became a tutor at Harvard for one year. It was during this time that he published his first volume, one of poems; in 1834 a translation of Ileeren's "Politics of Ancient Greece," following that in 132C with a,n oration in favor of universal suffrage. In 1S30 he was elected, without his knowledge, to the Legislature, but declined to serve. In 1334 he published the .first volume of his "History of the Unite.d States." A year later came the second volume. In 183S he was appointed by President Van Bnren collector at Boston, and in 1844 —Mrs. Watts—"I know, and you know, and every one knows that there wasn't a prettier baby than Ethel at the show, and yet they gave the prize to that Wilson baby." Mrs. Potts—"But you must remember, dear, that the judges were all men. It was not the superior beauty of the Wilson baby that defeated Ethel. It was, the good' looks of its mother.
