THE LATEST FIFTY thousand rare rose plants are now growing in the world's fair grounds, not ordinary, evory-day roses, but each one of some choice variety. Think of the richness of such a treat as that for all flower- lovers. THE clergy list has few more geneious men than Rev. Edward A.

A. HUNDBEO and fifty persons buried beneath an avalanche in Switzerland, hundreds of lives lost in the eruption of Mount Etna, cholera ravaging an increasing area in Russia and ten thousand human beings destroyed by the volcanic outbreak in the Malay Archipelago nake up a July calamity record which puts our mercury in the shade. A dispatch from Singapore says that the sultan of Johore, one of the most prosperous states in the east, situated , in the western part af the Malay causing to be prepared for the world's Columbian exporitlon a model Malay village, in which the trades and industries pecular to the Malaya will be carried on by natives. It is highly probable, the dispatch adds, that tbe'.Sultan himself will visit Chicago during the exposition. TOWNS in the mining regions of the west, like those in the oil and gas regions of the east, decline as rapidly as they rise. Their prosperity is based on one thing, and when 'that is gone the towns go too. Thirteen years ago Bodie, Cal., was a most flourishing place, and to possess a corner lot there was to ba a very rich man. From two mines about $22,000.000 of precious metal was obtained in a few years. The town had 5,000 inhabitants and gave promise of becoming a great city. But today it has but 900 in- habitantn, and a fire recently consumed many of its buildings. It is thought that the place will soon become deserted. JAW IN CATTLE. The dissase of cattle by veterinarians actinornycosts, but by stock raisers as "lumpy jaw," has causee mucb alarm throughout the west for several years says the Chicago Journal. Though it has never (been shown that ,. it is contagious, !}hn spread of the disease among large herds of cattle on ranges has caused people to believe that it is communicated from one animal to another. Secretary Rusk states that the bureau of animal industry hud been conducting experiments in treating this disease, and had come to the conclusion tbat .it was curable by the use of a simple remedy. It is the intention to collect in the west tit least a hundred of animals Directed by this disease and to treat them to ascertain how many of them. can be cured . In the course of his remarks on the subject the secretary said: "lam confident the experiments now under way with a treatment will prove successful. This treatment consists in the internal administration of iodide of potassium in full doses — tbat is, in doses ranging from one to three drams, according to the siza of the afflicted animal. It is given daily until improvement is well marked, and then may be withheld for a day or two at a time. The medicine is dissolved in about a pint of water, and is given before feeding the animal it morning or evening meal." The number of cases of this disease has been constantly increasing for several years. Although animals affected with this disease are condemned at the stock yards they continue to be sept there. They are disposed of at a price that does not pay for bringing them a long distance, and this has caused many to believo that nome of them are slaughtered, dressed luiU sold for food. While it hau not been proved that this meat is absolutely unwholesome, it is certain that no one would knowingly eat it. If tbis new and simplu treatment proves to be effective it will result in preventing a great loss to stock raisers. The price of beef is now so low that a few animals made unsalable by disease will offset the profit on those that remain healthy till they ure at au age and condition to be sent to market. !

[Detroit News.] The following paragraph, which ap-. peared in the News a shoit time ago, furnished the basis of this information —a case that was so -wonderfully remarkable that It demanded further explanation. It Is of sufficient importance to the News' readers to report It to them fully. It was so important then that it attracted considerable attention at the time. The following Is the paragraph In question: "C. B. Northrop, for twenty-eight ,years one of the best known merchants on Woodward avenue, who was supposed to be dying last spring of locomotor ataxia, or creeping paralysis, has secured a new lease of life and returned to work at his store. The disease has -always been supposed to be Incurable, but Mr. Northrop's condition is greatly (improved, and it looks now as if the grave would be cheated of its prey." Since that time Mr. Korthrop has steadily improved not only in looks bud in condition, till ho has regained his old- 'time strength. It has been hint ?d to the writer of this article, who was acquainted with Mr. Northrop, that this miraculous change had been wrought by a vory niuiplo rem- rdy called Dr. Williams' i'nik Pills for Palo People. When usked a out it, Mr. 'Northrop fully verified tli.- statement, and not only so but he bad uikou pains to iuform anyono who was suffering in a similar manner when he hoard of any such case. Mr. Xorthrop was enthusiastic at the result in his own c.-iso of Dr. Williams' Pink Tills. It wii* u, remedy tbat ho had hoard of after ho had tried everything he could hope to givo him relief. He had boon 'in the caro of tho best physicians, who did ail they could to alleviate this terrible malady, but without any avail. He hail given up hope, when a friend in Lockpoi-t, N. Y., wrote him of tho case of ft person there who had been cured in similar circumstances by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. The person cured at Lockport had obtained his information respecting Dr. Williams' Pink Pills from an article published in the Hamilton, Ont., Times. The case was called "The Hamilton Miracle," ana (old the, Btory of a man in that city who, after almost incredible Buffering, was pronounced by the most eminent physicians to be incurable and permanently disabled. He had spent) hundred of dollars in all sorts of treat-i rnent and appliances only to be told in the end .that there was no hope for him, and that cure was impossible. The person alluded to (Mr. John Marshall, of 25' Little William street, Hamilton, Out.,) was a member of tho Royal Templars of| Temperance, and after having been pronounced permanently disabled and in-l curable by the physicians, was paid thq $1,000 disability insurance provided by the order for its members in such cases.. For years Mr. Marshall had boon utterly helpless, and was barely able to drag himself around his house with tho aid of crutches. His agonies were almost un-i bearable and life was a burden to him, whon at last relief came. Somo months after ho had been paid the disability claim ho heard of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and was Induced to try thorn. Tho result was miraculous; almost from tho oirtset an improvement was noticed, and in a few months the man that medical experts had said was incurable, was I going about the city healthier and stronger than before. Mr. Marshall was so well known in Hamilton that all tho city newspapers wrote up his wonderful recovery in detail, aucl it was condition fapldty going froin bid worse* until at last it wns declared to was no hope for him an I he was nounced Incurable. Hti was in this rible condition when he began tl Dr. Williams' Pink'Pills, and th««i restored him to health. , y ' Mr. Northrop Was asked what claimed for this wonderful remedy replied that he understood the pro'i tors claim it to be a blood builder nerve restorer; supplying in a eondei form nil the elements necessary to rk-h (be blood, restore shattered and drive out disease. It Is clalu, the proprietors that Pink Pills will thus, as before stated, that Mr. Northrop came into possession of the information that led to his equally marvelous recovery. One could scarcely conceive a case more hopeless thnn that of Mr Northrop. . His injury camo about hi this way: One flay, nearly four years ago, he stumbled and fell the complete length of a steep flight of stall* whloh 1 were at the rear of Els store. His head and spine were severely injured. He was picked up and taken to his home. Creeping paralysis- very eoon developed^ itself, and in spite of the most strenuous efforts of tnouds and physicians the terrible affliction fastened Itself upon him For nearly two years ho was perfectly help- oss Ho could do nothing to support Us strength in the least effort, •chak e: ' W n 0eled about in an chair. He was weak, puk,, and fast! sinking when this time y Information camo that veritably snatched Ws life from ho jaws of doath.

Nevertheless Jolmntone Bennett Llktt fllon's.Collara, Ties and V«sts, "I never could get a woman's flummetj of ribbons and laces to look well about my neck and shoulders, so I sought relief in a man's high collar and four-in baud scarf." said Mis Johnstoue Bennett, of the Jane company, on her arrival at Chicago recently. "There was to me," she continued, "a dressiness in masculine np.ckwear that feminine bow knots and what-nots could not approach. I am sredited with being the first of my stx to start the 'fad,'but I was not concious ho?/ far I had gone until I next adopted I'-o vest and coit combination of the lf-,.u'.i lo;di—'.here 1 paused and have sinre reme<i in my so- called dress revolution. But for the extreme comfort and ar .istic effect that 1 realized in my vestH und cutaways, I would have discorded tLe.i and returned to the conventional straight-] acket styles with'which 1 was afH.ctt.-d before.. The storm that fashion's votaries ra : sed aboul my ears, after my debut iu vest array took every form of misiyjflstruetion, but I trusted to time to set me aright. I knew that woman as a rule were like sheep, ready to follow every drift of fashion 1 ! tide without a thought tf the consequence! to themselves. I knew a^aiu that there were women who would, in the mad race of some new style, struggle anil scramble and fnatoh to get to tbe fore and lead the pellmell in" a new cbase after another craze in another direction. And my convictions have been repuitecily upheld in the interval. Why look at the latest that my six are guilty of—I mean the apprc- pratiation of poor maii'd suspenders—to me-_the ugliest idea po-sible, totally at variance with tbe gr.ic-ful curves and folds of tho natty vest and coit. The only alarm that tbis absurb suspender movement occasions me is Out the men may take to wearing their pupportables ei- posed in the same way. But, I feel that the length of tbe average man's coat tails will bo n. preventive against the introduction to the pubic eye of his properly-concealed braces. "Nothing was further from my mind than the sensation which my departure in costume deated. .1 hi»d consulted my own tastes in the ma ter,- and being well contented with the freedom i f movement that the new attire vouchsafed me, I braved the talk and quite survived. Perhaps, had 1 been in private life, instead o£ an actress, my fad might have passed awaj, into oblivian, unwept, unsung. It was unfortunate for [fashion's guiding spirit that it remained for a meek young actress, then getting a salary of but S20 psr week, i to unwittingly steal a march on it.
