How wretched is the man who has fallen a victim to Biliousness, Indigestion, Sick Headache, or diseased Liver, with all the horrible attendants. Look upon the picture. Poor man, being 'tired of dragging out a miserable existence, he is the picture of despondency; altogether, he is rather a forlorn specimen. * Do •we pity him ?

Xocosfiary 'to Keep tlie .Muscles hi Proper Trim. At Cooper Medical Colleg-e a number of doctors and students met tae other clay to witness ;m anatomical demon- striition 1»y >Bn<r£esen, the contortionist! The investigation, says the San FriuiL-isco Chronicle, was conducted by • Drs. Gibbous and Hirsdifeklor. The two gentlemen proceeded to tie the sphygmograph to Bag-gesen's left wrist. That instrument, it may be stated, records tlie pulse waves from the heart into the. arterial system. Two tables lashed together served as a platform, and the subject, entirely naked, eoin- mencedhis demonstrations. In the first contortion, with fVet and leg's firm and straight, he bent his body in the form of an arch until his head touched the table.. Then, \vit1icmt raising- the feet, he turned over on to his-side, lying 1 flat on the table, and - afterward twisted his trunk so that his body formed an inverted V, Again he doubled his boTIy backward in the foiin of an arc, the legs being brought up to the arms. Next, standing upright, with legs firmly fixed, he so contorted the body that the frame was again at an angle with the lower extremities, and in this position the doctors found that his heart tfecame transposed to the right side and dilation was probably present. The pulse record showed ISO beats atthis juncture. Again, to exhibit his wonderful muscular contortions. Baggesen, lying on his back, twisted completely round without elevating his body, turning on Ms side and again over on his back. Once THE TWIST. more he turned on his stomach and this time brought the left leg right over his head. Then he reversed his arched position, bending the body until the head hung between the legs, and in this posture he moved his head from the neck, round and round and backward and forward. The last exhibit was the feat of bringing his head between his legs, the upper part of the body resting on the table, the legs turning and again forming an arch. The doctors present were well satisfied at tlTe exhibition, demonstrating as it did'the marvelous control a human being can command .over tlie muscles and ligaments by continued practice" and exercise. TJr. Gibbons said that Baggesen's ligaments throughout his entire system had by constant practice become.elongated to a degree before unknown to medical men, and that while the heart action was weak and the pulse waves nearly imperceptible in various positions of the body, still Baggesen's physique was remarkably strong. His diet is necessarily meager, as any excess of fat would tend to put a stop to his contor- tional powers. Baggesen was bom at Odensee, Denmark, and is now twenty- eight years old. He has been practicing these contortions since he was seven years of age, and unless he exercises everyday for at least half an hour he finds that his muscles become stiff and strained. ' TO MAKE CIGARETTES. Smokers May Save Health and Jlonry and Amnso Themselves. Notwithstanding the vigorous denunciations medical men have launched against the smoking of cigarettes, i t is pretty evident the dainty little cylinders of to\ PLACING THE TOBACCO. THE FIBST FOLD. bacco and paper are steadil-y growing- in popularity, and that the warnings and pro- • tests so plentifully scattered have little If any effect in deterring 1 those wlio have acquired a taste for them from pursuing- it— too often literally 'to the bitter end. .'• Without approving- of the practice, says the New York Press, readers who smoke cigarettes would do well to follow the 'example of one who has been a regular cigarette smoker for over twenty years and make their own cigarettes. By doing this they will not only secure a healthier, but also a more enjoyable smoke. . The ready-made cigarette 'is It5 more - ways than one a delusion. In the first place, to give it shape and permanency, the tobacco has to be tightly packed, whereas it should be so lightly rolled ;that the. slightest effort will draw a sufficient current of air through it to maSnViin the combustion. Again, in the bought c i g ar— The dotted lines ette, the .tobac- shov? position of flngtrs co -^ s almost behind the paper. invarfaily . "be- come hard wid dry before it smoked. The result of this is that it burns too rapidly, giving out a hot, unpleasant smoke, which, if the smoking is continued for any length of time, will inevitably produce the burning of the lips and throat tlr.it novices so frequently complain of. ]Jy purchasing tobacco and paper, the only materials "required, "the" smoker can insure the quality of both, and.by making up his own cigarettes he will have them at hcilf the cost, while the pleasure to be derived from them will be men? than doubled. The illustrations given show the process so clearly that it is only necessary to «iy that the fresher the tobacco, and the more lightly and, evenly it is. rolled, the more enjoyable and healthy will the smoker find his cig ctte. " A PRINCELY SCULPTOR. Statue of tlie J'rlilcc*rt of \Valos ExecuL liy Victor of Holiniilolie. A lift-size statue of the Princess of Wales has been executed by Prince Victor of Hoht-nlohe, and is to be placed in the vestibule of the Royal College of Music, London. The Princess, who holds a degree as doctor of music from the University of Dublin, is represented in her college cap and gown. Her right hand, the wrist encircled by a plain. gold bracelet, holds back .the heavy-embroidered folds of the gown and discloses the plainly-plaited French STATUE OF THE TBINCESS OP WALES. merino dress which she wears when in academic costume, whjje the left grasps a roll of music. The only other qrna- •ment is a small harp-shaped brooch, which fastens the neck of the gown. : Prince" Victor is a seulptor of some ability, and many of his works have 'been exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Grosvernor Gallery, where he takes -the name, of 'Count Gleichen. After ill health compelled him to leave ithe navy he studied under a sculptor named Theed, who had executed co_nsid- erable work for the Quean and -the Prince consort, and has since followed sculpture us a profession. His talent is of an entirely, practical character and his work is mainly in statuary. His 'studio is in a corner of the garden of St. James' .Palace', and was erected "by himself twenty years ago. The statue of the Princess of Wales was subscribed for by the women of England.'and the Marchioness of Salisbury was the head of the committee. . . Made Aclilit.ioii»H.v So J5y »-Skillful Combination of Vt-lviit Hud Fur. Emerald-green serge is used for making this gown, which has a skirt that, while almost smooth in front, is laid in the usual box-plaits at the. back. The edge is finished with a band of natural beaver, the glossy brown of which contrasts well with the green of the stuff. The bodice is quite plain in the'back and is laid in folds in. front, the closing being concealed under the folds on one side. From each side, at the waist-line, starts a brown velvet ribbon, which is brought to the front and arranged in loops and ends that come far down iip- on the skirt. The high puffed sleeves are of brown velvet, almost exactly matching the fur. The collar is a very attractive feature, to this frock. There is an inner one of serge, which is simply the high curate shape, but framing it is a very high one of velvet, something after the fashion of the ?tfedicis shape, which'is wired to positiin. • Nobody can doubt that the pretty damsel caiight that single rosebud with its- long stem to add another harmonious bit of color to her gown as she rose from the" quaint old chair to receive some welcome visitor. . • Such a".costume in brown, trimmed with black fur; • in gray, trimmed' with either black or brown; in blue with black, scarlet with black, mauve with brown, or in: black with black would be in good taste. And, although T do : not believe in buying a coat, cape, muff, or any other special article of any .but the finest furs, I do not think that one need not spend all of one's money in having the most costly furs for' trimming the -foot of the skirt; - so that in selecting trimming.the woman who has the ability to shop may obtain a.great bargain tha.t will be ainever-ending pleasure. If the trimming fur does its duty, that is looks well' for one season, then all has been gotten from it that is desired, and the-bargain-eeeker should be satisfied.—Chicago Times; —The white mourning of the youthful Queen of the Netherlands is a revival of an old custom." ;Some ancient orders of nuns, corresponding to the passionate one for men, used to dress in white.
