The spirit • 'ot music awoke In somebody's of east, |and that somebody began to sing that .most uneingable of national airs, the "Star Spangled Banner." It went bravely along for the first verse, with only a crack or two on the "rocket's red glare." The leading spirit began the .second verse. Soine of the Women •sang "tra-la-la-11," and some "dum- dee-dee-dee," but they all came out strong on the refrain. Then there was a pause. "Go on," said somebody. The leading spirit grew red In the face. "How does It begin?" she asked. Everybody looked at everybody else, and then everybody blushed, for nobody 'In all the gathering knew any more of the song. ttcffe We Ai*.

In the island of Minora, one of the Philippines, the humming- birds are pugnacious little creatures. An American hunting party had a novel experience with them. One of the huntsmen wandered off from his comrades, but soon his screams were heard. Thousands of the humming birds had attacked him and wounded him in hundreds of spots on his face and neck. "When rescued he was streaming with blood. 0 AN OLD BULLY. *** People who live in fear of his attacks. •<£• How to avoid him or beat him off, ^ If biliousness isn't tlie bully of the body then what is ? When once biliousness gets 'the upper hand you don't dnre say your Btomacn is your own. " Don't you dare eat that dish says biliousness, or you'll see what I'll do." You take the d»re and you do see or rather feel, the weight of the bully's revenge. The head acnes, not a regular ache, but an open and shut ache. The eyes ache, not with a dull, tired ache, but with an agressive ache, ns if they were being bored by a gimlet. The stomach , trembles with nausen. "The whole head issick and the whole Heart is fniut." There are scores of hundreds of people who live BO under the dominion of -this bnllv biliousness that they dou't dare ent or drink without his permission. There's no need of such slavery. Dr. J. C. Ayer's Pills effectually cure biliousness. "For fifteen years I have used Dr. T. C. Ayer's Tills, and find them very effective in all kinds of bilious complaints. They are mild in operation and easy to take. I prefer them to any other pill, and have yet to see the case where they have failed to cure."—A. SWANOER, Texarkana, Ark. "I have used Dr. J. C. Aycr's Pills in cases of biliousness and general disorders of the stomach and bowels and have found them to be always reliable. They are less liable to gripe than other purgatives, and although mild in action, they are thorough in operation. They are the best family physic that can be had."—PETER J. DUKFY, Rockport, Texas. "Having used Dr. J. C. Ayer's Pills for years and thoroughly tested them, both as a preventive and cure for biliousness, I can truthfully say that I believe them to be the best medicine for the purpose and they do all that is claimed for them."— JNO. K. KOLB, Shark, Ark.j Biliousness is in general but n symptom of a more stubborn disorder, constipation. Constipation is the root of almost all physical evils, and Dr. J. C. Ayer's Pills cure almost all these physical evils by going to the root. They cure constipation, and the consequent nmladies, biliousness, heartburn, palpita.-on, shortness of breath, sleeplessness, nervous irritability, foul breath, coated tongue, and a score of other miserable maladies that have their origin in constipation.

If all the plans relating to the colnftga of both silver and gold are adopted tha capacity of the mints of the country will be taxed, beyond their ordinary limits! and they will be obliged to Work overtime to make much headway in disposing of accumulated stocks of bullion. The secretary of the treasury has asked an appropriation of $260,000 to enable him to coin the gold bullion in the treasury, which on the 1st inst amounted to $96,998,864. Besides this the new revenue bill provides for th« coinage oj abouj $42,000,000 of silver at the rate of $l,5t)6,u06 a month. In addition to these demands upon the mints it is expected that from $12,000,000 to $15,000,000 of gold will shortly arrive from the Alaskan mines at the San Francisco mint for coinage. This will make a requisition upon the mints for the coinage of more than $160,000,000 of gold and silver bullion, for which there is an immediate demand. READING: THE PAPERS. There has not been a time for years when the people of the United States, already the greatest readers of newspapers in the world, have read the news of the day as carefully and at such length as at present. Conversation with one's friends all tends to show that, however literary their tastes and pursuits, the real life of the dally paper has irresistible charm against the temptations of fiction, history, poetry and all the rest. Every word in the news columns Is scrutinized lest some fact in the progress of the war with Spain should escape; and this is as true of those who have no direct personal Interest in the conflict as of those whose fathers, brothers, husbands and sweethearts have enlisted to fight the nation's battle for freedom and humanity. THE CAROLINES. It has been surmised, from a good many circumstances, that Capt. Glass, who left San Francisco on the 18th of May, ostensibly for Manila, with the cruiser Charleston, is not bound directly for that port, but has an Important mission to perform on his cruise to Luzon. It Is said, with a good deal of positiveness, that the Charleston haa gone to the Caroline islands, which belong to Spain, situated east of the Philippines and about two-thirds the distance fro Hawaii to Manila. There is on the island of Ponape one of the finest harbors in the Pacific, which is defended by a fort and a small garrison, supported by two puny wooden gunboats, and Capt. Glass has enough troops to take the fort and enough guns to sink the little boats. BLOOD ON CUBAN SOIL. To the navy must be acorded the Iionor of shedding the first American blood on land in the war for the independence of Cuba. Assistant Surgeoa loim Blair Gibbs, Sergeant Charles H. Smith and Privates William Dunphy and James McColgan, all of Colonel Huntingdon's battalion of marines, which landed at Guantanamo last Friday, died in a Spanish attack on the American position Saturday afternoon. Smith was the first victim, falling while relieving guard on an outpost at the opening of the engagement. Assistant Surgeon Gibbs was shot in front of hia tent before the Spanish force was repulsed in its most desperate assault REAL CONTEST. Presumably American troops will land in force on Cuban soil this week. Unless the strategy board is waiting to build a bridge or dig a tunnel, it is difficult to understand why there should be further delay. The navy has accomplished all that is to be expected of it at Santiago, and its achievements there will go for nothing unless they are supplemental within reasonable time by the co-operation of an army. With the landing of the army in Cuba; the second stage of the war will begin and in that stage results will be accomplished more slowly, nt greater cost and by far greater expenditures of effort and of life than in the first stage. FALL OF MANILA. Novr that Manila has fallen we are naturally interested in knowing what kind oC a Spanish victory it will be considered at Madrid. Will it be an-. nounr;ed that, with groat presence of mine) and unexampled bravery, tha Spanish general succeeded in compelling the hated Yankees to take the job of garrisoning the city off his hands, PO that the burden now falls on tha! United States, the expectation being that it will so cripple the government that the conquest of America will bo easy 1 WORK BY WAR DEPARTMENT. With the view, doubtless, of spiking 1 the guns of the newspapers which have been attacking the government, the secretary of war has issued a statement to the public on the work of the department up to date. Only a portion of the task of putting the army in condition for war is, however, indicated, but that is sufficient to show how inadequate the popular notion is of t'ho enormity of the undertaking thrown upon the department, ANNEXATION OF HAWAII. The promise that as soon as the war revenue measure was out of the way the house would take up the Newlands resolutions providing for the annexation of Hawaii and pass them seems likely to be kept. Since the pressure has been so strong on the speaker, W£Q has always been classed as an opponent of annexation, he has had to yield to the large majority and there IB IHtta doubt that the a*, 1 ion of the b&viie week will mult in the passage of resolutions aJt tyre apnojBtfifl * A FATALITY AVOIDED. (From the Democrat, ftosfcen, tnd.) When neuralgia is accompanied by A tll> heavy pain near the henrt,f frequently becoming intense, It generally terminates fatally. Mrs. Nancy Flynn, who lives near Goihen, Indiana, survived such an attack and her advice is Worth heeding. "In the fall of '93," she said, "I begin to to have troubl e with my heart. There was a sharp pain in my breast which became rapidly worse. The doctor was puzzled and put me under the influence of opiates. Thescsharp attacks followed one another At Intervals, and I became weak nnd had a haggard look. I was constantly in pain, seldom slept and had no appetite". -*^ lt . "At the end of two years I was confined to my couch most of the time and the jlwtpr? agreed that Jny death was only a matter of a short time, ••••«.. ..... "One day I noticed in a newspaper an item •— •'• about n woman having been cured of neuralgia of the heart by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo People, nnd I concluded to try them. "When I had finished one box 1 noticed nnim- and when I hnd tnkeu twelve boxes I -was completely cured, 'Those pills have done for you what we could not do, 1 said ono of my physicians, 'they have saved your lilo.' "That was two years ago and my heart has not troubled mo since. I believe I owe my life to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills forPale People, and I take pleasure in telling others about them." Among tho many forms of neuralgia aro headache, nervousness, paralysis, apoplexy and lonomotor ntnxia. Some of those wore considered incurable until Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Polo People wore formulated, Today thousands testify to having been cured of puch diseases by these pills.

He found them profitable, and good to have about the place. ___ — • —' "".' it* There is nothing more desirable as a change from winter diet than spring lamb, and all through the summer these younglings came Into use, and the entire flock was a source of Income, sraall^ perhaps, but generally sure, to the owner. — — - —. . ' Now one may make a day's Journey through almost any thickly settled country without seeing sheep, and there are many children old enough to ask question^ who do not even know what they are. • —,..., The principal cause of the absence of this valuable auxiliary to the farm is the presence of Innumerable untrained dogs that scour the country and make the keeping of sheep next door to an Impossibility. These troublesome animals become very shrewd and crafty. They have been known to watch until quite certain that no one was within eyeshot or earshot, then suddenly spring upon a sheep or lamb and kill It almost instantly. A faint bleat from the victim and a rapid scurrying away of the remainder of tho flock are tho only alarm that these timid creatures can give. Efforts have been made in many of tho states to restrict the number of dogs so that fanners could keep sheop, but the law, when any exists, Is a dead letter, and one of the most Important industries in this country is practically abandoned on this account. The wealthy fanner who can keep . caretakers and dogs to guard his flocks may do well with them, hut the small farmer cannot afford such protection, and as it has come to that state of affairs when no guard no sheep is the rule, he has no choice but to pass by a branch of business that would yield him a certain, though perhaps not very large, revenue.
