It Is a fact that nearly all reliable proprietary medicines wero first used and thoroughly teated in practice ^by physicians ot more than usaalability, and yet some physicians sneer at such medicines. The reason is plainly seen by taking Brant's. Balsam for ation, known everywhere as re- and.8ure to cure every sort of lung and throat trouble, except last •tages of consumption. Why Is it notjnst at good for your oa»e as a phyflclaa'a prescription, \ which might oori three or lour times M much, though no lurcr to cure? ?Large 25 and 50 oen bottle* oi Ben Fisher. A Friends AJvlco Som3 four or s Bve • years ago J. A. Goodyear, a 'young man lull ol life and vl<ror, left tho old farm in Calhoun county, for the more active life in the city, Drifting into the telegraph business, ha oocured a position on, the C. & N. W, Railroad, at Republic, Mich. In addition to hia dutios as operator, he was required to sell tickets, check ^baggage and make himealf generally useful. Between the exacting officials on the one side and tho inconsistent public on the Other, ho was worked and worried to such an 'extent that his health gave out and one day ho was carried to his home, after having a severe nervous spasm; he grew from bad to worse until ho had to relinquish his position, a physical wreck. Tho doctor could not cure him and told him so, but advised him to go to Ann Arbor and place himself in charge of th.it world wide institution of learning, which he did. He con. tinued with their treatment constantly and faithfully for four;;long years, receiving little, if any, benefit. While in this condition, a friend Rave him a bottle of Dr. Wheeler's Nerve Vital. izer, with an urgent request to use it. Not wishing to offend his friend, he promised to do so, but did not, because. as ho argued with himself, "What is tho use of taking that 'stuff' if the most learned nerve specialists in the world can not cure me?" But as time passed he would occasionally think of the neglected bottle of medicine given him and his promise to use it. One day he picked it up and mechanically pulled the cork, measured out a dose and took it; a change seemed to come over him, his nervousness abated, bis mind became clear and he thought he felt something of his old time vigor. Ho continued taking :.the Vitalizer until he was "able to sit up, then to walk a fow steps; the sluggish blood in his volns became active, color returned to his flesh and ho felt the need of more food. He soon Improved so that ho sought and became engaged in light labor and earned the first dollar in nearly two years; hope attained its long vacated position in his brain and hla friends rejoiced at the wonderful change. Mr. Goodyear is now leading a thoroughly active and successful life which he says ho is proud to attribute to Dr. Wheeler's Nerve Vltallzer, the greatest nerve builder over produced for nervous prostration, spasms, fits, sleeplessness, mental depression, exhausted vitality, despondency and general debility.

Old Hunter Lyforrt'n Special Trnp \Tas Xot Strong Kiionffh to Detain Him. Trolling for black bass at the lower end of Lebec lake in Maine last J«ly. said a sportsman, my guido pointed to a little opening- in the woods on tho left shore, fronted by a narrow strip of sand beach. In the opening was tho ruin of a camp. "There's Hunter's springr," he said. "If you want a clriak of first-rate water Tre'll laud there." He pulled our skiff to the beach, and •we landed. The littte clearing was grown up to bushes, the walls of tho camp had crumbled, and the fallen roof, lav upon them, but the charred bnelc- lo£ of what had been a fireplace still remained. A path led amid birches and evergreens to the spring welling- «p into a cup-shaped hollow among moiisy roOks and overflowing in a little rivulet that rippled down to 'the lake. A birch bark dipper hung- from a forked limb above the spring-, v.-hosc waters I found to be deliciously pure and cold. "This was old Hunter Lyford's homo camp," said my puide. "lie hunted boars about the shores of Lebea lake for a R-ood many years. He hail traps set all around the lake, and other camps to stop at when ho went his rounds to visit them, but this camp was always his headquarters. Xearly four hundred bears he killed in his life-time—one for every day in tho year and sosie to spare. He had pot up 10 his two-huudredth bear when tho Indian devil came round to his very camp. Lyforil was sitting- by the five in front of his camp one night when he Saw the creature pass, and afterward heard, it give some terrible screeches. We'd never seen or heard anything-like it in all his points antl coming's in the woods, and it made a great impression on him. jSoxt morning' he came down to the village, and went to his home. He was something- of a blacksmith—used to innke his own traps—and now lie set about making- one a pood deal bigfper and stronger than a common bear trap to catch that Indian devil. "An Indian devil? It's what some folks call a catamount or a panther. The Indians were mighty afraid of them; they called them devils in their tongue, and that, I suppose, is what made white folks give them the name. They're mighty scarce in Maine now, if there are any left. It was the only one old Lyford ever saw inall his hunting. Well, he made his trap, and camo back to the woods and set it, anil next morning the trap was gone. Tho tracks were plain, showing the direction the beast had taken, and Lyford, with a party of men from Lebee village, followed them up. They said it was a sight to see the way the creature had broken and bent down bushes and sanlings as he toro through the woods. There was a tree still standing- a few years ago, with the deep scratches high up on its trunk where tho beast had tried to climb out ol tho trap! At last the party came to tho itrap smashed to pieces, and then they reckoned it was about time to go home. This was tho last Indian devil that ever troubled this part of the country."—N. Y. Sun.

The Queer JGooklne Structure Krortcd by tho Owner of the Eminence—-One* a FavorJto Keiort of the Clillilrrn. Mount Ararat is tlie first of n series of hills which end in the ridfrc upon which Summit. Is located, ^'illi many twists and turns the tracks of tlic Morris & Essex division of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western railroad climb up from the Orange valley to the top ofi this ridffe at Summit. Quite nenr to> the track—about half a mile—is Mount Ararat, upon which stood for many, years the queer-looking structure called the "Ark." This ark, says an eastern exchange, ivould have been a mere cockleshell! upon tho broad expanse of. waters, and) if its builder built it for a second deluge betook care not to put too much of anj outlay on a useless object. It. was twenty-fire years apo that B. F. Kissam,; ovrutd Mount Ararat and many broad! acres surrounding- it. Ills fine resi-j dcnco stood on the east side of tho Springfield turnpike, in Milbiim town.-. Bhip, about a milo and a half from tho villages of Milburnand Springfield. Not far from his house was the bnea of Mount Ararat. This spot was the highest point on his domain, from -which! a fine view could be obtained of the surrounding country. It waa in the rear 1SCO—according 1 to tho pcopla Rtlll living in amburn—that Mr. Kissam' ' constructed the queer wooden building . which looked like an "ark," and wa^ perched upon tho crest of this eminence. The craft was about fifteen! feet long by five feet 'wide, pointed atj both ends, and surmounted by a canopyi supported by fancy posts, much on th^ Swiss style. The boat stood about two feet from the ground and was reached) by a short flight of wooden steps. Its interior arrangements vecro veryj meager, consisting only of comfortably seats at the ends and on both sides. A» the sides were not inclosed it was cx-| posed to the elements, and though kepl^ in repair during the-ownership of tho. builder it became a prey t" tho influ-i ence of time and the sto. s, whicli found IL.O, good mark in its unprotected 1 position on the hilltop. ' At one time it was a favorite resortj ; for tb e school children during the weekj days, and on Sundays was the Mecca to, which boys and girls turned their stepa when out for a walk. If any boy had, 1 a new jackknife whoso qualities wero, to be tried, tho "ark" was the best object to attack. As a result it was covered with all sorts of poetic cflusiona^ both original aud otherwise. Initials and! names were carved, cut, or scratched| in every nook and corner. These pen-j knife attacks helped along the destruction, and each year witnessed the do* cay and demolition of the building. The 'framework, which alone ro^ mainod, was destroyed about two yearq ago by a fire which started in. the long] prass surrounding it. llr. Kissam, thq- builder, long ago sold the property, upon which the "ark" stood, and afte« passing through various bands it is noi^ owned by James E. Pitcher of Shorlj pni&. It is safe to say that no objec^ in. that portion of -S"ew Jersey was moro conspicuous than the old "ark," nothing was more missed from ECape. Aor»T TtKX*. Japanese, unnsed to visitors from the L; western xvorld, speak of their "angry t faces" because they do not smile. .Japanese children have been, known to rua , shrieking from an American or Eng- ^ lish ladv, frightened by what seem to them her huge size, fierce face, staring blue eyes and -white, uncanny skin.
