The White JIoimt'i,in region is not •jrolifio of new* nr this season of the year, but the little town of Buthle Taeju, N. H., nfTorded ini emphatic proof of the old sayiog thut "fact is atrtviger than fiction " Here under the shadow of Mt. "Washington, dwull Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Vttrney, 1 \vo of the best, known and most highly respected .residents of Bethlehem. Their interesting story, together with the really remarkable facts, the truth of which thoy vouch for in every particular, aod which is endorsed ~>yy the well-known wife of Bethlehem's popular minister, Rev, L. A, Webster, is well woithy the attention and consideration of the reud- ::ng world, "Throe years ago," says Mrs. Var- aey, "I had a shock which aiTlioted aio badly in my head nnd one side of 3iy face, especially my right eye. I •!«ns oonflQftd to my bod for a while, and suffered great pain in my head, Trluch troubled me for several weeks, X had very severe headaches for joioe time, and employed doctors •who used a buttery on mo, giving jsie only temporary relief. This continued for about two months. About Sve mouths later I heard of a wonderful cure by Dr. Green's >'ervura Mood and nerve remedy, from a friend of mine, and I resolved to try ::t ^.commenced the use of the Ner- rnra, and the etTeots were immediate »B<1 very pleasing. I have now used Tlvo bottles and am able to do hard ,work most every day—yes, and ^alk *k>ng distance; and always got to txrayer meeting about the first one, .and before many who live rnuoli nearer. I attribute uiy cure to Dr. Green's tfervnra blood and uerve remedy. I jbeerfully and gladly recommend it io all, and would be^glad to answer inquiries. I cannot speak too high- Ty of this medicine. My husband has been cared of a severe case of kidaoy complaint by this splendid medicine. His kidneys troubled him terribly for a long time, but after taking Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy a short time, he was entirely well. He ays it is all that has kept him from grippe this winter, -which he has had for several years before." Mrs. L. A. Webster, wife of Rev. L. A. AVebster, of Bethlehem, says: "I am acquainted with Mrs. Varney, and know her story is true." It is such cures as these -which have stamped Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy as the most successful, tUe most . wonderful, medicine of modern times; the reins dy, indeed, -which is 'effecting more cures all over the country than any and all others combined. It is the great conqueror of disease, and nothing can 'resist Its marvelous curative powers. The ^newspapers are constantly filled with the testimony of prominent people whom it has cured. But fop every such 'person cured, thousands upon thousands of less prominent people in all classes and walks of life are being restored to health acd strength by ibs potent action, Particularly is this doing grand work now, for everybody needs and uses it in the spring, as it has demonstrated itselt again and again to be the most certain and effective spring medicine. It is not a patent medicine, but the prescription of the most successful living specialist in curing ner- TOUS and chronic diseases, Dr. «re«ne, of 35 West 14th street, New York City. He has the largest practice in the worW, and this grand medical discovery is the result of his vast experience. The great, reputation of Dr. Greene is a guarantee that his medicine will core, and the fact that he can be consulted by anyone, at any time, free of charge, personally or by letter, gives abso- ute assurance of the beneficial action of this wonderful medicine.

March 20..—Secretary Smith has forwarded to the president ttc draft of two proclamations opening •to settlement tho • lands ceded by the Tank-ton Sioux Indians'.in South' Dakota and tho Alsea and other -Indians •n the Silotz reservation in-Oregon. The president is. expected to'act im- zaediately on these and issue the formal ^reclamations within a few days. The Tankton reservation embodies some of she best land in the state and contains 268,000 acres. The proclamation, aa forwarded, provides that the landa aha]} be subject to entry within thirty 3»ys of publication. Land officials do not expect a rush ior the land such as characterized the Oklahoma opening- and will adopt aieasures tending- to secure equal treatment for all settlers. The agreement •with the . Yanktons provided for the ^atyrneut, of $000,000 for the surplus f*n<3s, together with J20 lor each mala sdult of the tribe. Tho agreement \vith the Indians on ihe Siloti reservation provided for the .session of airtheir unalloted lands ci- <aept five sections of timber land, the k>Ul ceded territory . covering 178,800 acres. .The compensation : paid by the government was $1,00,000. .,There are sere.-al other reservations for which opening 1 ^tojetUement are being made, and the Kcz Ferces Iniuls in Idaho will probably bo among tho Iir.il iiuulc subject to entry.

AMslKtccl in Murdering Her Fucher. Shortly after being- taken to the police station sbe confe.ssed to having assisted in murdering her father last IiJay. Mike Smith was tlie murdered man's name and previous to the last and successful attempt to kill him by poisoning an attempt was made by shooting 1 . The ball passed through his head just back of the eyes and from the effects he was blinded. It was not proved who fired this shot and Smith eould not be led to believe that members of his family '.vere plotung to kill him, but insisted that it was a man who was an enemy of his. Slou-ly l^oisor.nd to Death. Xot long after the shooting incident poison in small doses wasadministorud, from the e.lToets ol which lie died. The wife and daughter wove arrested, charged with the crime, and in June the wil'u was convicted and .sentenced to life imprisonment in the Iowa penitentiary. Cora was discharged when taken before the police jud^e for a lu-aring and, after reiniiiiiing in Des ines £or a short time, she came to Omaha. Her associates noticed that something- \v:is continually , worrying her and that she eould . not sleop. After her mother was sent to the penitentiary Cora began writing-to her, and in one of the letters she told her mother how she. had ' assisted in. poisoning- her father, and at i the same time implicating- her aunt, Mrs. Ellen Leader. II«r Aunt. Iltlpo'l Her. This letter fell into the hands of the detectives, as did also the correspondence following. Iti her confession, she said that the poison used to kill Iw father was purchased by her aunt, Urn. Leader, and that Mrs. Loader administered several doses, but the one which ca.used her father's death, and the last dose given was by her own hands. She expressed u. willingness to return to Des Moincs without requisition papers and said that she would be glad to get a chance to have her mother liberated. She said she -vas willing to pay the penalty of her crime, • and the thought that her mother was Serving- a life-time sentence for something she had not done had preyed upon her mind until she had become almost crazed. -\Yunted to Get lurtuninco Money. The object of the murder was for the purpose of getting the insurance which Smith earned CD his life. The amount was $(i,000, but after the conviction of Mrs. Smith for murder the insurance companies refused to pay the policies. Smith was one of the oldest engineers on the Bock. Island road.

Hisfricads thought be had gone into a decline, and possibly, had heart disease. Aad no doubt he did; but it all came from the dyspepsia, and siuce that has been him the other day, and his conversation is repeated here: I " The trouble was with my digestive ays- • tern, and with my heart. As i consequence, for nearly sir years I was unable to enjoy a weul. To partake of fresh bread, cak'es, pies, or any kind «f pastry was out of the question. A small portion of food of this character would give me untold agony. So I had lo go without it. MY trouble steadily increased, despite all my efforts to check, it. I took all sorts of medicines prescribed by physicians, with no perceptible abatement of the disorder. Finally my heart became involved, and occasionally I would be dis- tnrb«d with tumultuous beating and palpitation. Worse than all, feelings of oppression and suffocation would ensue, and sometimes the heart action would be suspended. 1 confess I was very much alarmed when the Hrnxllnjr at Enff;;lo, El!;, Etc.

A bunch of horses will live for I months iu some little set of. ravines, j feeding over the same ground day in j and day out, until some change in the i weather causes them to move to another | locality. Xlie same is true of ran^e cattle, though they wander more thau horses. Though nil species of our western wild £-:;me wholly change their ranp;e in spring' and autumn, yet, after they have settled down on their summer or winter ranges, the area that they cover in their daily wandering's is not extensive- At certain hours of the day they g-o to water; at a particular time they will be found lying- down, usually in the same place, or feeding iu the same neighborhood.

I "One evening last fall, I noticed in tho I Brooklyn Times an account of a remarkable cure effected by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills lor Pale People. I was pale and tliat fact helped to awaken my interest in tin! announcement, which I road through carefully. A day or two later a similar narrative appeared with reference to the pills, tho symptoms of the person cured bein;^ similar to my own. That settled tho question for rue. The next morning* I procured a box, and before I had taken half of them I experienced decided relief. I continued the pills and my improvement was rapid, until now I can eat with impunity what my appetite suggests, without re- g;iril to time or amount, in reason of course, and the functional disturbances of the heart liav-i: disappeared. I have always had heart trouble, but it has been greatly relieved by the use of the Pink Pills, I consider myself cured of the stomach trouble. Anyone bavin:; the symptoms I have described may take the pills with the utmost confidence of their bringing relief."

It is one of the wonders of cvery-day life bow long- the lower forms of created creatures retain their vitality under certain conditions. Microbes of various sorts, that seem dependent on moisture for existence, have been dried half a score of times, put away and kept dry for a Ions period, and have, under ofavorable conditions, revived, apparently none the worse for their hibernation. They have been heated to 'one huudred and fifty degrees Fahrenheit, then kept in a vacuum for a month. Notwithstanding all this, they revived upon beinpf placed in a warm, moist atmosphere. Even snails may be deprived of oxygen, water, food and heat, but will merely curl up and po to sleep, awakening when conditions are favorable. How long- they will live has not been decided, but according to experiments they will survive for many hours.—N. Y. Ledger. Thin Gout Wtui » Smuggler. Some years ago a tame long-haired goat formed part of the regular crew of a passenger steamer on service between an English port and a continental one. After a time the customs authorities discovered that it wore a false coat, many sixes too large for it. Th« goat's o^'n hair was clipped very close: round its body were packed cigars, Jacc. etc.. and then the false coat was skilfvlly put on and fastened by hooks and eyes.—Notes and Queries. —The swimming- wild hogs of America are doubtless of the razor-back variety seen in the pine forests on the eastern shore of Maryland.
