A PECULIAR CASE, PHYSICIANS PUZZLED BY THE EXPERIENCE OF MRS. BOWEN. tDu KplJCopnl HoiptUl S*id She Had Coiuuunptlon. :'., ' Last July the Episcopal hospital admitte a woman whose pale and emaciated face ap .' racking cough proclaimed her the victim of consumption. She Rave her name w lira Sallie G. JJovren. wife of Win. G. Bowen residence, 1849 Meighau St. Philauelphi The case was diagnosed and «he was to! plainly that she was in an advanced ataj, of consamjrtion. The exninininL' physicia • even showed her the sunken place in he " breast where the cavity in her lung was sup posed to exist. She went home to her farail a broken, disheartened woman with deal staring her in the face. That wan the begin ning of the story, the end wax told by lira Bowen, who no longer cxpecU to die, to a r~ porter vrho visited her home. " The first symptom* of consumption cam in the form of terrible «weats. ooth nigb ar.d day. From April until September was constantly cold and kept wrapped u ia blankets through the hottest weather. j terrible cough took possession of roe, m breast was sore to the slightest touch, an my limbs were like cold clay. The bardcs rubbing with the coarsest towel would no create the slightest flush, and the least eier tion would so exhaust me that I could barel* gasp for water. , " I went to the hospital in July and the; diagnosed my case an above stated. 1 was when the clouds were tho darkcs that tho first glint of sunshine came. . Shelmerdine, a friend, who lives uround „ 1844ClcmemineSt.,«aicltonieotieday, "Mrs Bowen did you ever try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People?" I had never heard o the medicine but in my co»dition could no turn a deaf ear to anything that offered re lief. It was lifter considerable thought am investigation that I concluded to discontiiiu •11 the medicine I wan taking, includin) cod liver oil, mid ilupcnd entirely upon I'M Pills. I begun to take the pills, at lira -with' but little encouragement. .Tho firs sign of improvement was a warmth am * tingling sensation in rny limbs. Finallj the cough disappcitrud, my chest lost n soreness and I l>e«n.n to gain llesh until ' was fifteen pounds heavier'. All this I owe t Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I cannot prais them too highly." . Mrs. Bowen is n kindly faced lady c middle age, n church member well-known .«nd highly esteemed. She looks to-day • well and strong and it deems almost im possible that she was ever given up by era Jncnt physicians as an incurable eonsnmp , live. Vet such is the case beyond all dis Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peopl contain nil the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore ihattered nerves.

They had just returned from their wedding- tour. It was late at night. No festal board or other culinary decorations were there in the home of the bride's parents to greet their eyes. This was not unexpected, for they had cloned. But now they had returned and were both sitting- on tho sofa in the front parlor awaiting the advent of the parents. • There were atmospheric and other indications that a terrible storm was brewing. Overhead the sound of rushing- feet could be heard. At first the tread seemed soft, and deep; then it became sharp and decided. "He has put his boots on," ejaculated Lysauder Butterworth, the bridegroom, as he crossed his leg-s and impatiently twisted his mustache. . "Oh, it is just terrible of papa to take on so," added the young-woman at,his side, "Now, don't be nervous, Helen, I'll fix him in the first round." He cut the sentence short, for just then the door opened and the old couple strode into the room majestical- "Well, sir, what do you want here?" demanded the stern father in tones of thunder. "I—I—" "Didn't you have sense enough to know that I'd break your carcass into cracklinfi-s if you should ever darken my door again?" "But don't you see—" "When you stole our daug-hter, the child of our bosom, didn't you know that you were committing 1 a crime that you would have to extirpate with your life's blood If I ever pot my hands on you?" "But I—" "Then why did you come back?" And while tho irate parent paused from sheer exhaustion, the young 1 man spoke as follows: "Sir and madam, I herewith return your daughter to you. Goodnight," and he started for the door. 'Hold on, hold on!" shrieked both parents in ono voice. "What do you mean?" 'I mean . that I have been disappointed. I thought your daughter was much young-er than sho really is. 'I also supposed I'd get some financial assistance for taking her off your hands. It was all a mistake. Good night." . He had succeeded in getting- out of tho front door before his progress was retarded by four strong hands. "But you are not going to desert our daughter?" they demanded. "Why, you don't want me to have her, and, as I have said, I don't see that I can ,take care of her without a cash settlement." It was a noblo bluff that young- I<y- eander Butterwortli worked that night. But he did the business well. In less than half an hour all the family real estate had been conveyed to him.—N. Y.'World. I _••• . RECALLED HIS YOUTH. Work on the .Farm Prettier In th» Mind Th*n In Roalltj. Be was a country ^lad, ono of those plucky young iellows who see more of the thorns of this weary old world than of the roses, and as ho walked into the office of onOjof Atlanta's leading cotton dealers to negotiate the salo of a bale of cotton ho had brought into the city jfrom the farm he took off his hat and hugg-ed the'stove while waiting? He sat there several moments, looking dreamily out -into the busy streets, thawing himself, and perhaps figuring ia his mind as to what price his cotton would bring him and what it would enable him to take his dear old mother away up there in his mountain home. - What kindness there was in tho boy's face, what dreams in his great blue eyes, what warmth and glow in his red hair. It was no difficult task to read inithat fellow's face' the life he lives. He was ono of • those tender-hearted youths whose good deeds were as numerous as the freckles of his manly face—one of those proverbial Georgia plowboys who become great men, whose hearts arc tuned to the merry- chirps of songbirds, whose walks are amid the dewy vales a-bloom with fragrant flowers or in the pathless -wood. "Ah, how t envy you, my dear boy," said the wealthy cotton dealer, finally, turning to him and breaking into his day dreams. '"Sah?" and the timid youth was •tattled. "How I envy you. I look upon you, mj little {aan, and drean} of the past. I was a country boy Just like you. I thtnlf about the dear old days as tho one bri«i period of my life that bore no curse. There was tho old swing under the big oak tree down by tho garden., the old barn where I used to spend the rainy days shucking corn, the dear old -well and the old oaken bucket—ah, what a dream is tha told oaken bucket! Yonng man, don't you love to linger around the old oaken bucket on a sul! try day, and drink the sweet water j that pours from-its mossy brim?~ J VFhat j joy and bliss, what fascination and what charm; and I dream on>mid>on, with longing and regret," and the wealthy cotton man shoved his hands into his silk-lined pockets, and walked to tha window, a perfect actor in his line. "Yasser; hit's a-porty good thing in hit's place," remarked';tho lad slowly. "But say, mister, did yer ever have tor draw fifteen buckets of, water, in de heat er de day for de steer, you'd been a-plowin' all de mornin'?" 1 And they talked about cotton.—Atlanta Constitution., SOUTH AFRICAN ENGLISH. Strange Sttttomenti Cont«lnfd In Som« - R. Eussell, superintendent of education, appears to delight—as -well ho may do—in publishing the funny little blunders that some of the candidates perpetrate at, the collective examination. Here are a few "gems" which were selected from some MSS. which were not sent in for the Ivatal Witness literary prize competition: "Her hand was cold, like that of a serpent." ''Tho countess was about to reply •when a door opened and closed her mouth.' 1 " 'Ha! ha!' he exclaimed in Portuguese." "The colonel paced backward and forward with his hands' "behind his back, reading the newspaper." "The man ' was dressed in a velvet jacket, with pants of the same color." 'All this seems very ridiculous, but similar blunders have been made by some of oar best novelists. For instance, Anthony Trollope, in one of his works, speaks of a man "walking down the street whistling, with a cigar in his mouth.!' Some of the author's friends drew his attention to the absurdity, but Trollope 'stoutly maintained that .it was possible to whistle with a cigar in one's mouth. However, he could not do it when challenged, and I have been no more successful myself. Will the UoIi.molIoriiK Fall? An old German prophecy relates that the llohcnzollern dynasty will fall when an emperor has seven sons. Six are already down to tho credit of Emperor William, and, as the empress is about to become a mother again, there is considerable excitement among, the superstitious of the empire lest the prophecy may . be fulfilled, in part at least, which they believe would indicate the rest to follow. Keacbod the Limit. "Paper flowers are all right in their place," said a gentleman who boasts ol the joys and comforts of married life, "but I'll be hanged if there isnt even a limit to paper .flowers. My wife and daughter have the craze, and they have it bad. If I attempt to iight tlie lamp I' invariably - set fire to a tangle of honeysuckle. If I go to the library I am frightened to death lest I break ono of the branches of morning glories that hang like cobwebs in front of tho glass. If I attempt to sit down, stand up or walk, I am compelled to reconnoiter about and to indulge in all kinds of Fabian tactics before I can move. I did not object. They enjoyed it and I was satisfied. But Sunday the limit was reached; then my regal anger was aroused. I have a small conservatory which is the joy and prido of my life. One Sunday one of my business friends came up to see me, and I took him out to show him my flowers. That's where the trouble was. -My wife and daughter had paper flowers io every nook and corner. Every plant in. the place had a paper flower? 'That settled the matter. That night there was an extremely large bonfire in our yard. "—Cincinnati Tribune. Held by thn Enemy.
