Judge's Famous Cartoonist BernardGillam Recommends Paine's Celery Compound for Exhaustion, ^|;pl^^^^^^^^^r: ^ Tho Buffalo Newa, lu a recent artl- •jle remaks upon the fact that "Ber» jjwd GUlnra, the cartoonist of Judge, li ooo of tho t&vr living raon whose cartoons havo ever changed a vote in ttra-U.' S. Sonato," Bernard Glllam is a yountf man, but iJ5. He received his art education In Sajfland. Uo U today the foremost Cartoonist of America, In 1SSO he came to Harper's Weekly as the colleague-of the immor- iul Nast. HU work afterward for jfrauk Leslie's and fuck well fitted 'blm for bringing Judge to its present '.mocess. In 1S8G Mr. Glllam want into parloorshlp with \V. J Arkell, wd bought Judge. Tho fulKpa^e colored oarloona, Mr. Gitlatn's special province on Judge, equal the remark- ible etl'.>r:d of the greut Keppler, In .-/udpe't) older rival. There is probably no form of brain work that is so exhausting, so exact- .Ing- and eo intense as the work of the $reat artist on the large comic papers. To turn our brilliant ideas with the regularity of machinery and yet keep Jbslr work up to "the high standard j»t by tbolr splendid reputations.mikes fean'ul demands upon their nervous 7H»llty. Mr.' GUUm knows what evero work moans. Tho nervous strain of his respon- sible position has at times brought him near to prostration and the giving up of his work. Ho says In a letter dated New York, Nov. IS, 189'*: "No tonic, that I have inkon has done me so much good as Paine's celery compound. When I am run d'lwn or exhausted afUr particularly exact, ing work on cartoons and in other ar. tlstlc occupations, I have found a dose of the compound exceedingly beaoQ- cial as a restorative for the nerves." The racing speed of ins marvelous new processes for swiftly carrying our men's ideas Is taxing to their utmost the nervous systems of countless men and women. A cry of protest la going up ail over the country from medical men against the suicidal waste of nerve force. Preachers, editors, lawyers, even doctors themselves, from their dally round of hard, anxious work—svery brain worker, in fact, who labors draws heavily upon his nervous vital • ity, must take alarm at the first sign of brain-tire, pressure, fullness or tension In the head .or nervous fatigue. In every city in the United Slates physicians every day are not only pre- ( i-)!'", 1 ' Nrt themselves using Paine's coler> oooi^ouud for -weakness and ner70us debility, for curing the tffect of poor aud unhealthy blood, dis- orders of liver, kidnejs. stomach, heart and the nervous eyetem. An effective remedy must firtt fn'cr the blood to cure rheumatism. Local treatment for a constitutional disorder will do no good. Rheumatism, gout, blood poisoning, scrofula etc., are diseases lodged ia the bloorl. Just why Paine'd celery compound cures, while other remedies fail, Is because all Us ingredients effectually aid the system to rid Itself of any poisonous humors in the blood. Hundreds of cases have within this year been reported directly from persons, between the ages of 45 and 05, suffering from acute Bright's disease, who have been permanently cured bv Paine's celeiy compound. ItEtopsthe gradual structural changes In the kidneys, restores their vigor aod removes such alarming symptoms as the gradual loss of strength, pallor of the ,'ace, shortness oi breath, pain In the b ck and sides, dropsy and a puffy condition of the skin. As a spring medicine it is absolutely without a rival. Every overworked man.acd woman, reduced in strengh, flash and nervous vigor, will find a powerful restorative in Paina's celery compound. It is food for the brain and nerves; It sends, new, healthy blood through tha arter- ief. It makes people well. ORIGIN OF TICKET SCALPING. *«rt!Ml Jn WhcpllnR. W. Va., n QuMtor of a Ontnry Ato- Campbell Oubbarcl, a nail traveler, of ''STlieeluiK. recently said to a Globo- Dcmocnit man: "I have just been seading 1 the decision of Judge Nash, at Dallas, in the ticket broker case under Sc new Texas law, intended to do *wny with thic scalpers' business. It •trilccs me as being 1 an exceedingly aloar and a forceful exposition of the subject matter involved in the Traxlcr prosecution. It is closely in line with decisions in favor of the scalpers in Jliuuesotiv, Illinois and Pennsylvania. The gravamen of these d-.-cisions is that *R unused railway ticket, or an unused portion of a ticket, is leg-itimate property, and anv law which interferes with its disposition by sale is contrary ^to public policy, if not in direct conflict •with the constitution of the United States. This decision of Judge Nash •jvill help the scalpers, not only down Sn Texas, but all . over tbe country. The extent to which the ticket brokers 2jflo tlj.e.we.al» roads against the stroncr ones'ls "but attic realized, ana wiinout their aid rnanj' of the lines would go under. It is their method of cutting rates secretly to stimulate business, and the brokers arc really regular agents of these companies. By the bye, perhaps you don't know that the scalper business originated in my town— Wheeling. It was about twenty-five years ago. We had a couple of bright young- follows there—Upton W. Dorsey aud another chap named Frank. They took a notion to speculate on a small scale in tickets of the Baltimore & Ohio, and the first scalping transaction that ever occurred in the history of railroading took place there in Wheeling 1 . The Baltimore & Ohio company made a big 6ght upon it, and the case went to the supreme court of the United States. The result was that the supreme court handed down its -fajuous decision to the effect that when a man buys a ticket for so many miles of transportation he is entitled to travel those miles, regardless of the limit dates stamped upon the ticket by the company's agents- From that time on the scaloer's .business flourished, and spread with amazing rapidity all -over the country. It is now as safe and as legitimate a line of business as banking 1 or insurance or manufacturing, and is, moreover, a mighty help to the traveling public. 'J oapitn iias u Dimicing nouse mat Oas been in business without a break 1 for over three hundred years. It began with Yechigo No Kami, an impoverished f.".-.dal uoble of the province of Ise, who broke away from the traditions of his caste and went into the liquor trade, manufacturing saki from rice. One of his sons established a bank, which two centuries ago was'removed to Tokio, the present capital, and from the name of the principal at the time took the name bv which it is now known, of the Mitsui bank. Like the Roths- childs, tbe whole family is engaged in the business, a marked feature 1 of which is that, the capital belongs to all in common, while ao one member: can claim a separate share. The tnost competent individual is chosen president. The bank has now over thirty branches, and is the largest bank in Japan. Easily, Quickly, Permanently Restored.

Co-Ope ration of theTreimury and the Bnukl In Supplying the Nation's Ciwli. The government's business of shipping- currency was increased a few years ago by the inauguration of a system of exchange between the country banks and their New York correspondents. Small banks throughout the country usually keep balances in New York drawing interest on call loans. These balances are sometimes of great assistance to the New York banks through which they are lent, and when money is tight the New York bank sometimes finds it extremely inconvenient to let these balances go. When a country bank wants money it wants it in a hurry, and it wants it in currency of small denominations. The demand is usually made during the season when the crops are moved. Knowing that the country institution cannot use money in large denominations, the New York banks some years ago played a sharp trick on their correspondents. Receiving a telegram from a country bank asking that a large amount of money be shipped immediately, the New York correspondent bank would telegraph back: "Cannot get anything but §20 gold pieces." The country bank could not use S-0 gold pieces. Besides, it would have to pay §2.25 per SI,000 for shipping them. So the country bank would manage to get along somehow without the money. One ' day a banker in Florida telegraphed to his New Youk correspondent asking for some money in §1, S3 and S."> bills, lie telegraphed to the treasurer of the United States, asking if small bills could be furnished from the sub-treasury in exchange for SiO gold pieces. Now, the treasurer of the United States is always in need of gold; he can never have too much. Ho telegraphed to the Florida man immediately, agreeing to furnish, the needed small bills. The Florida banker wired his New York correspondent that lie would Uke the ?.'.>() gold pic-ens, and asked to have them deposited with the assistant treasurer at New York. Tho New York banker had to stick to his oiler; so t-hu deposit was nuulo at tbo. sub-treasury and the sinall bills were shipped by the assistant treasurer to the bank in Florida. Of course, when the New York game had been "blocked once it could not be practiced ou any up-to-date country banker again. The New York bankers made an attempt to persuade the treasurer of the United States to reverse his ruling and refuse to ship the bills to country bankers. The matter was carried to the secretary oi' the treasury and he decided that the treasurer was right. So the practice has been in vogue ever since, and it lias facilitated the business of the country very ranch. Recently Secretary Carlisle has ruled that the New York banks may deposit bills OH large denomination in place of gold. The form of transfer by which money is taken from New York DOW and shipped to any part of the country via 'Washington is very simple. The bank in the south or west telegraphs its correspondent ill Nuw York- to deposit the sum which it requires—say S10.000— with the assistant treasurer at New York-. At the same time it specifies the denomination of the bills to be shipped. The New York bank makes the deposit at the sub-treasury. The assistant treasurer sends a certificate of deposit of the amount to the ollieC of the treasurer at -Washington. The treasurer orders the SIO.ODi) sent to the bank in' bills of the denominations named. The packages of bills are made up by the clerks in the cashier's ofliee and delivered to the agent of the United States Express Co.. which has an office in the treasury department building. The bank which receives the package pays the express company SI.00 for handling the money. Or perhaps the money is to be paid at the sub-treasury in St. Louis or Chicago. If'the assistant treasurer at the point named has a sufficient cash balance the treasurer telegraphs to him: "Pay to bank SIO.OOO in 2's, .Vsand 10's," if that is the request made in the requisition of the bank. The dispatch, of course, is in cipher, and could not be. changed in transmission for the purpose of committing a Iraud. The assistant treasurer repeats back the message in this form: "Have paid to the ——bankS10,000 in 2's, 5's and 10's." This is also in cipher. If the two telegrams do not agree there has' been some mistake in translating them or in transmitting them, and the whole transaction is suspended until the mistake has been corrected. There is seldom any delay, and the bank usually receives its remittance within twenty- four hours of the time of telegraphing its correspondent in New York. •But the treasury department is not satisfied with simply supplying the demands for accommodation made on it in this manner. The treasurer tries to anticipate these demands. As the season for harvesting the rice and cotton crops approaches the treasury depart- refisu menc supplies to tne suo-tre^vsury at New Orleans large quantities^ fractional currency and small bills, which will be needed to pay the field hands. When the great grain crops of the west are ready to be harvested the treasury department fills its western branches with the kind of money which will be needed by the small bauks for distribution among the farmers. Norfolk, Va.. uses up 540,000 worth of fractional currency in a year in the picking- of the strawberry crop. The expense of handling the money needed for the moving of the crops falls equally on the treasury department and on the couutry banks. U'herc a bank asks to have bills shipped to it, the expense is borne by the bank. Where silver money is wanted the treasury department bears the expense. The treasurer of the United States is always glad to pay the express charges on any quantity of silver for the purpose of getting it into circulation. That is the reason so much silver money is found in the west. The banks ask for silver rather than paper money, because they would have to pay the transportation charges ou paper. It costs the government about S50,000 a year to keep the country supplied with silver. And it pays only gl.61 transportation on every SI,000.— Harper's Weekly. TERRIBLY MAIMED. A Woman Who I.IVRI! for Year* Without UiiiuU. Feet, Nos« or Ears. Cases of double amputation are by no means rare, lieiug generally the result of railway or machinery accidents. Cases of triple amputation are met with, but are very scarce. Of quadruple amputations, where all the limbs have been operated upon, there is only one case on record. The subject's name was Elizabeth Robertson. When twenty-one years of age she was admitted to the Duncan royal infirmary May 2:i, ISO 1 ,), under the care of Mr. .Tohn liegg, who performed the subsequent operations. She was found to be suffering from mortification of both hands, extending as far as the wrists; of'both feet, involving the lower half of the legs, and of the tips of the ears and nose. j After being kept a few week's on liberal diet to prepare her for the ordeal which she was obliged to undergo, both legs were amputated some inches above the ankles .June 17. July 2 the tip of j her nose and small portions of her ears i were removed. The idlh both arms were amputated above the wrists. She never had a bad symptom afterward. The stumps of the limbs healed soundly, and were able to bear a great amount of pressure. The 16th of October she was discharged and left for London, where she was fitted by Heather Bigg with artificial limbs for the four extremities. The success which followed upon their adaptation took the numerous professional men who had the opportunity of examining her by surprise. After short practice, aided, at first by a go-cnrt, the patient became able to stand erect, and to move from place to place with but slight support, walking, in fact, with a certain degree of facility and comfort. She rapidly acquired such control over and such readiness of practice with her hands as to feed herself and. carry vessels with liquids to her lips and brow; to crochet with great facility and precision: to pick up articles even so small as a pin, and, finally, to write with most legibility. From the time the appliances were put on down to her death—that is, during a periodof fifteen years—she maintained herself'by crochet work, having a laige sale for her work, not only ou account of the excellence with which it was done, but also because it- was accounted a great curiosity. Her majesty, the queen, graciously interested herself in the case, and presented Mrs. Robertson several times with donations, besides frequently purchasing- articles that she had worked. On. lu-r death in 3SS-1 the artificial limbs were purchased back again from her friends by Ili.-al.hcr liiffjf, who presented them 1o the royal college of surgeons,-" in whoso museum in Lincoln's 1'nn FieKls they may now be seen.—Tit-Bits.
