Iced In Other There Is more Catarrh In this section of the country.,thnn all other diseases put together, 1 and until the last few years It was supposed to be incurable. For a great many yenrs doctors pronounced It a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly falling to cure with local treatment, pronounced It incurable. Science hhs proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease, and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, Is the only constitutional cure on the market. It Is taken Internally >n .dosea from 10 drops to a teaspoonful.

' The innumerable banquets which are offered to the royal persons on every occasion axe exact emblems of the many valuable und pleasant dnys which are, ot their instigation, and by their command, wasted in senseless formula, says Ouida in the Forum. . Once, when costume was beautiful, pagx.-an.try was so also, and ceremonial was so also; but now both are unsightly nnd grotesque. Two bearded men in hemlets,.or .caips, . kiss each other on a railway footboard;; old:>lndies in waterproof cloaks tod dl 8 through two lines of policemen; 'a fat g-entlema-n, with a round hat, with a cigar in his mouth, walks over a piece o' red carpet, nodding- to.abendinphu-. map hedge of supple spines; faces beam inanely, throngs outside 'the station door cheer, they .know not why, troops .ore massed in .readiness; for nowhere are these personages ,saJe Irpm ..attempts upon their lives; . the whole thing; is unlovely, absurd, anomalous, 'a ,caricature .of .what w.a» once. both, intelligible and respectable, but in which .there .is no longer, either prestige or symbolism. Wi.thout dignity in its ob- 'ject loyalty, is a mere. boneless bundle of \vornout robee, and diffnity.perishes at .th« BcreBm..ot. the railway. whistle. - Cnr-totiN Customs I'niclli 1'urtH of the World. Soisc of the eust-OTiis peculiar to courtship nnd marriajje nrnong' the race of dwarfs who inhabit tlie Andnman i«laiixl are, accord ing; to ^f. tic Quat- refapcs, who roociHly published a book called "The Pygmies." about iliese poo- pie, very peculiar. Not- the least re- nifirkable of them is the jjrocedure of courtship, Tlie young 1 'man who has mncle his choice tidclrc$$ca himself to the parents, who rover refuse, but send the g-irl into the forest, whore, before aft,;,', she conceals herself. The young 1 man must find her. If he floes not succeed he must renounce all claim to her. The wedding ceremony of these people is equally curious, II, Qimrofng-es thus describes it: "The two parties climb two flexible trees growing nenr each other, •which an old man then makes to bend toward each other. When the head of •the man touches that of the ffirl they are leg-ally married." Turn ing 1 from Asia to Europe, we find a very curious custom prevailing 1 in ISouinania. Among 1 the peasantry of this country, when a pirl attains a marriageable ngre her trousseau, which has in fbe mcnn- ,-while been carefully woven, spun and embroidered by her mother and herself, is placed in a painted wooden box. When a young 1 man thinks of asking to be allowed to pay his attentions to the.girl'he is at liberty to open the box, which is always placed in a convenient position, one! examine.the. trousseau. If he is satisfied with the quantity and quality of the do-wry he makes formal application for the pirl's hand, but, If not, he- is quite at liberty to retire. with the exception that there is a right shortstop, thus making ten men to a side. In the outfield, in public games, there is on unlimited unmbcr of players, each tujiing n turn at the bat, Urst moving "Up cne position whenever a batsman is put out. The catcher sits on the ground, well oack from th.i home plate, und, to guard against injury, he wears a ronsk and a chest protector. His position is such that when a pitcher delivers a ball it Ktrlkcs the ground just'between'The knees nnd is taken on the short bound. The batsman takes his position, at the plate with a heavy flat bat, somr- what like those used in cricket. The umpire, who must be a man of unimpaired vision, calls upon the pitcher to get. ready, and then clearly cings out: "One, two, three!" At the word three the pitcher must loyally deliver the ball. He pitches in the slow, underhand way peculiar to the game 25 or 30 years ago, the idea being to deliver n ball that can be hit by the batsman, who, standing there in the darkness, with a sharpened' sense of heaving nnd a wonderful conception of the time that must elapse before the ball reaches him, is prepared to strike. IF the batsman should miss the ball bounces into the catcher's lap, nncl is re- i turned to the pitcher by a single toss i with a 1 precision that is wonderful. When the ball is batted the umpire calls on I quickly to the fielder in whose direction it is; traveling, nncl he. guided by a sense of hearing, either catches the ball or follows' it in its course through -. L hc grass. Six strikes are an out. In fielding any number of bounds are permii- ted. If the batted ball is a "hotlinjr" and traveling straight for an infiolder's head, the umpire shouts a warning, and in such cases the playerclucksor f.ills (o the turf. It is possible, in fnct, the ball is frequently fielded to first in time to put out the runner. When throwing to first the assisting .player, who is guided by the void' of Cie baseman, calculates the distance Kilh nicety :ind throws the ball so that it strikes the ground a few yards in front of 'he busuuian. The hit'.fir hears itcomhig and usually gets it'with- out further assistance. Eunning bnvjs was formerly o difficult thing. There were then three trees on the diamond, toward which the runner ran with outstretched hands. Hags have since been substituted for bases, and the runner ia guided by th? vok'C of i he baseman, who is required to shout: "First, first, first!" In like manner the other Lia-gs arc won, Once on o base the runner is pretty sure to get home, unless his side dies at the home plate. Six outs put a side out.— Boston Transcript. fe$% Safety comes first, in washing. What is the use . of making the work easy, as long as it's risky or dangerous ?

One of the most extraordinary seaweeds among the Laminai-iacetc is the Nereocystis, thestem of which occasionally attains a length of 300 feet, though extremely slender, even at the top, where it is surmounted by a huge float- Ing bladder six feet or seven feet in length, that affords a favorite resting pla-ce to the sea otter. This plant is found on the northeast coast of America and the opposite shores of Asia, The filiform stem, which is about as thick as pack-thread, suddenly swells above, when two feet or three feet long, into a globose bladder, fron^ the top of which springs a tuft of germinate leaves mostly rising on, five petioles. As the plant grows older the -stem increases enormously in length, but only slightly in thickness. The globose, bladder swells into a turnip- Bhaped or retorHike cyciindcr, six feet long and four feet six inches or more in diameter in the widest part, the lower extremity gradually passing into the stem. . The leaves, which at, first were marked witfc a few faint nerves, split in the direction of the latter, cover a wide space by their entangled mass, and attain a length of 30 .feet or more.. When the plant grows .In any quantity, it foraus large floating islands, nnd tbe surface of tie sea becomes Impassable to boats. The stem,, when dry, is employed by . the Aleutians for fishing lines, some of which have a length of '-40 or more fathoms.' The large bladders are used by the same-people as.syphons for p\mping waterout of their boats.— Fishing Gazette. Drawings of AH Kinds Made by BYRON B. GORDON. Draughtsman & Patent Attorney.
