JUSTICE AT FAULT. An Instance Going to Show That the Innocent Sometimes Suffer. Three of Detroit's prominent lawyers were seated in a restaurant waiting for flessert, when the quietest of the trio, •who had been attentively listening- to the conversation of the other two, smilingly said: "That reminds me, George, of an event of ray sweet boyhood days. "I was the leader of a 'crowd' and we had our headquarters in close proximity to a blacksmith's shop. The proprietor of the forge was a teasing sort of individual and we, boy-like, took advantage of this failing to bother him in every possible way. "One day we were enjoying 1 a g-ame of ball in the adjoining lot when a high •fly' bounded over the fence and the ball rolled right up to the back door of the blacksmith shop. One boy eatitious- Jy climbed the fence, and was just in the act of nabbing- the ball, when the lurking blacksmith jumped out of the door," grabbed the, frightened trespasser and proceeded to 'strap' him. This was too much, and when our abused companion rejoined us we formed a party for revenge. "A load of gravel had been dumped in the alley at the back of the lot, and we hit upon this as the proper agent. Every boy in the crowd was to. grab a handful of the gravel stones, and at a one. two, three, the whole fusilade was? to be launched at the blacksmith's windows. All the boys agreed to the plan gleefully except one, whose name was AVilliam Duff. William was a goody-goody sort of boy and objected for moral reasons and also that we'd get ourselves in trouble. We coaxed and pleaded, but William remained firm, and said he'd have nothing to do with the plan. As we got ready to throw the . stones William walked away and leaned against the fence within observing distance. The signal was given, there was a rattle and crash of breaking glass, and the boys all took to their heels. The enraged blacksmith rushed out of his shop an instant later, and, spying a small boy leaning against the fence, made for him. Grabbing him by the collar regardless of expostulations, he gave that innocent such a hiding- as he'd never received before. William had two black eyes and was a wreck. His people were very angry, of course, and went to law about the matter, and we boys suffered untold agonies in the meantime. The trial came off and I was subpffinaed with another boy as witness. The outcome of this trial •was my first instruction into the mysteries of justice. William Duff was fined SIS, and we, as witnesses, received sixty-five cents each. Poor William! Justice is a fickle goddess!''—Detroit Free Press. • IT LOOKS INNOCENT. U»nt in,Reality It J» a Poker Table ot tlie Deepest Dye. "Every parlor its own poker table" twill be the phrase hereafter; for some genius, according to the Carpet Trade Journal, has invented a combination affair that makes that desideratum possible. Nothing could be more innocent or harmless than this liable, as it appears in our first illustra- Iticm—a substantial, well-made table of irather novel design. But hold-. You i press lightly on jthe top, it re- vorves, and an entire change takes place. The ' innocent table has be- cooiej'as'in illtts- feration No. 2, a fun fledged poker table, and a most complete ^and perfect table it is, one that will bring joy to the heart of the most inveterate player. With the pockets to hold cards, chips, etc., we •will now no longer have to chase runaway chips over the floor while a fat jack-pot grows cold; and, besides, should an emergency arise, say a -sudden and unexpected visit from the de- Tont parson, we need not be caught red- handed, as it were, for with another slight touch the top of the table goes back to its former place, and, like a cloak of charity, covers our sin from right ^ WE EA^ TOO M1JCH. ,An Observer Points Out an American Bad Habit. An intelligent and close observer says -•the majority of people eat about a fhif & itoo much. The average American real- 'ly dines three times a day, with his jbeefsteak breakfast, chops for lunch, and roast beef at his six o'clock dinner. 'And he does it at his peril, for his habit .,of over-feeding, especially of eating so nrach meat, is ona of the provoking csottes of so many sudden illnesses and iBO many sudden premature deaths. ,Three meals a day of hearty food is ex- ihonsting to all the vital processes, and even the strongest succumb finally to ithis "ridiculous and wasteful excess." Americans are a nation of brain workers, and cannot safely indulge in high illving. High thinking 1 , or constant use at the brain in any direction, calls for a .plain but nourishing- diet Brain wbrk- i«n, especially, ought to live sparingly. ll/nxurious feeders require much exercise in the open air and freedom from |: >mtsBure onttie brain.' VFor the aged, ! W'even for those above .fifty, luxurious {living al) d overeating are especially dangerous. As functional activity Classens with increasing years, the BUD- -•pjy of food should; be'decreased accordingly. The hardiest race'lives on the .ftoplest fare. Frugality in diet—I e., i» minimum amount of,,, the, right qnal -lit*—serves far more certainly;, to; -pro- flimglife, lnsureihealth,and.' well-toeing, •ih&n a rich abundance and variety, which is accountable in a large meas- ttn« for the ill-health ^nd dissatisfac- of the present time.—Detroit Free HE DREW HER ON HIS SLED.

The Talented Young Man and the Beautiful Maiden. Once there lived a young Man who started out to seek his fortune. His people were poor and had nothing more tangible to give him than their love and blessing, so he set out with only a pen, a blotter and a bottle of ink. The pen was a coarse thing—steel-r- vrith a clumsy wooden handle which he himself had whittled when a lad. But there was really something wonderful about this ordinary-looking pen; the Fairies had tipped the steel point with a magic diamond, so that all words that it wrote were pure, and bright, and sparkling. It so happened that the young Man \vas so lucky as to find the road to his fortune at once, and soon he was making a fine lot of money, so that he was both comfortable and happy. Now, there also lived a beautiful young Maiden, very sweet and good, but poor—so poor, indeed, that she was obliged to work all day at a queer machine, upon the keys of which her white fingers went plunkety-plunk, and lol there appeared arrayed in all neatness and order the words which the magic pen had written. And as the Maiden sat at her work she comprehended the thoughts which were behind the words, which, alas! many of those who work upon like machines fail to discover; and, moreover, when the pen had hurried over a word to the dire confusion of the letters therein she did not substitute in its place a word from her own vocabulary or one of her own coining, but went straightway to the young Man and asked him if it should be thus and thus. Everybody knows that a man's chirography becomes more and more bewildering as his fame or his success in life increases. Now it may have been from that reason or it may have been— but why speculate—the fact was that the illegible words became more and more frequent and the Man's dark locks often brushed the blonde braids of the Maiden as they puzzled long over some word which seemed hopelessly involved. And since she was sweet and good, and true, and he was young and handsome,'and romantic, they fell deeply in love with one another, and they plighted their faith over the plunkety-plunk machine; and he was very, very happy, and the magic pen wrote more wonderfully than ever before. Soon his name was in every, one's mouth, and his verses and stories brought him more of money and fame than he had ever dared dream of. And now that he had reached what is vulgarly known as the "top notch" that something which is called Society reached out its many arms to welcome him, and it embraced him and petted him until he was dazzled by its flattery aijd intoxicated by its praise. And he grew half ashamed of his love for the Maiden and dissatisfied because she, poor thing, had neither position nor wealth to bring him—nothing but her pure, beautiful self. And so he told her one day .that he feared that they had been too hasty in becoming betrothed, and that he felt that he was doing her an injustice in keeping he: bound to him by her promise, when she might meet some one far more worthy of her love than he, and he said that perhaps it had been all a mistake—their little castle in the air— and he hoped she would always consider him her best friend, etc., etc. And the Maiden looked into his face, at first with a startled, hurt expression in her beautiful gray eyes; then as he went on, her glance turn to scorn and when he had done speaking- she said quite'calmly that he was right, and • that it had been only a mistaki which they need think no more about, and then she shut her machine and went home. Now the Fairies have a way of finding out things that happen among mortals which is a great deal quicker than our telephone '"or telegraph or i even our messenger-boy:system, and it 'was not many moments after "the Maiden left her work before a Fairy stole unseen into the Man's desk and took, the -magic- point from his pen, ; leaving only/the ijblunt and rusty tip; so that when the Man took it up to write his daily task the words which he ,wrote were. no.long<:r;bright, but were Tery dull'an : d stnpli. • : • - ^A11 'the '• sparkle •' w»s gone from his rerses, and-allthe wit and life from his paragraphs. So poor were they, in fact, that the M«n swore roundly to himself as he read them and tore them up_. Now, the maiden did not return to her work the nest day because she was ill—so in that the people in the house went about softly and spoke in whispers as they asked each other if she were atill unconscious and if the doctors said that there was any hope. And it so happened that upon the night of this very day the Man attended quite the swellest function that had seen given in society that season. But somehow the honeyed words and the lattery which he heard were like Apples of Sodom as he mentally contrasted them with the frank, sweet words of the Maiden; and he went lome sick at heart and swore that Society could be blanked for all of him. The next morning the Man, with his heart filled with shame and repentance, went to the home of the Maiden that he might humble himself before her;-and when lie found that she was ill, it was as though a terrible blow had fallen upon him. But when at last the Maiden, by dint of much skill and tender nursing, was on the way to recovery, to his great wonderment she accepted his tender devotion with the same. sweet trust that she had ever shown, and by no word or sign did she refer to what had passed upon that fateful day. And the Man pondered much—and he was sorely puzzled, and he wrote to a very learned doctor to know if a serious brain illness would sometimes blot from the mind an occurrence which had happened upon the eve of that illness. And the doctor showed this letter to a friend and grumbled: "That's the way these, writer-men pet the name of knowing so much. They get the pointers from us and then they go and work them into their stories, and people think they know it all" But he sat down and wrote to the Man that the happenings of a day or even a week before an illness with certain brain complications were often blotted entirely from the patient's mind. And when the Man read the doe- tor's letter he bowed his head and thanked God that the Maiden would never know. And so they were married, and the Fairies, knowing that the Man had suffered much and repented sore, gave him back the magic pen for a wedding gift, and he never wrote a dull word after—and if you think that there could possibly be a happier ending than this to a story, why, you may write it your- sdf.—Marie More Marsh, in Chicago Times. The Perils oT After-Dlnner Oratory. For several hours the feasting goes on; the speaker eats nervously, talks nervously, and then, on a full stomach, when the- body needs its energies for digestion, he is obliged to stand upon his feet and use all his mental resources and considerable physical strength in order'to make the impression he desires. It is the hardest kind of speaking, the most exhausting work, and the wonder is that it has not done more damage than has been credited to it. Certainly the guests at these banquets seldom appreciate the amount of labor and pains that it costs a speaker to amuse and instruct them.—Baltimore American. Danger Threatens every .man, woman or child living- in a region of country, where /ever and ague is prevalent, since the gjrms of malarial disease are inhaled from the air and are swallowed from the water of such a region. Medicinal safeguard is absolutely necessary to nullify this danger. As a means of fortifying and acclimating the system so as lo be able to resist the malarial poison, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters i* incomparable the best and the most popular. Irregularities of the stomach liver and bowels encourage malaria; but these are speedily rectified by the Bitters. The functions of digestion and secretion are assisted by. Us use, and a vigorous as well as regular constitution of the system promoted by it. Constitution and physique are thus defended against the inroads of malaria by this matchless preventive, which is also a certain and thorough remedy in the worst cases of intermittent and remittent fevers. to!8 DE.

Being the most ancient, it is the most general of all diseases or affections, for very few persons are entirely free from it. CURED By taking Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, by the remarkable cures it lias accomplished, often when other medicines have failed, has proven Hsell to be a potent and peculiar medicine for this disease.

Out of thousands of written testimonials to the worth and merits of the Americanized: Encyclopaedia Britannia we append a few from well- known and respected Chicago men. The Hon. Frank Baker, Judge of the Circuit Court 1 of Cook County, says: "!E some respects it is a vast improvement over the ' English Britannica. The English, edition contains no biographies of eminent Americans or Englishmen now living, and the biographies of those who are.dead are less complete. These deficiencies are remedied in the Americanized edition, making- it an. invaluable compond of facts absolutely essential to historical information. I consider it a most valuable book in any way you look at it. For the man_who wants-Ja book of reference for use I consider it invaluable. It is also a marvel of cheapness and an indispensable auxilary to every library." Lyman J. Gage, President World's Columbian Exposition And vice president of the First National- Bank; say: "The movement inaugurated to supply the people with the Americanized Encyclopaedia-Britan- nica is a marked indication of an advance in the intellectual taste of the community. QUnder.the easy conditions of purchase of the work it ought to be in every^library, however humble." From the Chicago Herald: 'The Americanized Encyclopaedia Britannica is a magnificent and valuable possession, for every household. It presents' for the first time a complete reference library at a price and on terms within reach of every t .family." From Colonel Geo. Davis, Director General of the World's Fair: "The work is a'most praiseworthy undertaking-. Any legitimate method by which'the people are presented an opportunity for the purchase at a reasonable cost of works of standard literature or works of importance as the means of acquiring a practical and substantial education deserves tho .fullest possible recognition. The Americanized EncyclopEedia. Britannica appears to have met the requirements in -all respects. I commend, the work with pleasure." B. St. John ; General Manager of the Rock Island Rail- Road System, Expresses his conclusions in the following direct and emphatic language: "The remarkable enterprise in offering to the public on terms _so. inviting a work of sucb merit as the Americanized Encyclopedia Britannica can but result in benefit to every person securing it. The Encyclopedia needs no commendation. Every page speaks for itself and attests its value." Prom the St. Louis Republic: "The Americanized Encyclopedia Britannica is not the Encyclopaedia Britannica in its old form, but the Encyclopedia Britannica Americanized and so Americanized to make it 'a thousand-fold more valuable to American Headers than the English edition." Colonel Sexton, Postmaster of Chicago, says: "I think it is a valuable addition to the publications of the year;. One- feature of the book must suggest itself to all readers—that is, the comprehensive manner in which the topics are presented. Instead of being obliged .to- read through a column of matter to get at the gist of the subject the latter is presented in detail in the most condensed, concise and presentable from the start. You cannot get up such a work as this too briefly. A child wants de~ tail, an experienced man wants brevity. You have it here without circumlocution or prolixity.
