They save a daughter from blindness. •When a father writes that yours " is the best medicine in the world," you can »llow something (or seeming extravagance in the Btntcmeat if you know that the medicine so praised, cured a loved daughter of disease and restored to her the eyesight nearly lost. The best medicine in the world for you is the medicine that cures you. There can't be anything better. No medicine can do more than cur.e. That is why John S. Goode, of Orrick, Mo., writes in these strong terms: " Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparllla is the best medicine in the world. My daughter had a relapse after the measles, due to taking .cold. She was nearly blind,and was obliged to remain in a dark room all the time. The doctors could give her no relief; one of them directed me to give her Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Two bottles cured her completely." The thousands of testimonials to the value of Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla repeat over and over again, in one form or another the expression: "The doctors gave her no relief; one of them directed me to give her Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Two Dottles completely cured her." It is a common experience to try Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla as a last resort. It is a common experience to Jttrve Dr. Ayer'a Sarsaparilla prescribed by a physician. It is a common experience to see a " complete cure" follow the use ol a few bottles of this great blood purifying medicine. Because, it is a specific for all forms, of blood disease. If a disease has its origin in bad or impute blood, Dr. Ayer's Sars- aparilti, acting directly on the blood, removing its impurities and giving to it vitalizing energy, will promptly eradicate the disease. The great feature of Dr. Ayer's Sarsapa- rillp is the radical cures that result from its use. Many medicines 'only suppress disease —they push the pimples down under the skin, they paint the complexion with subtle arsenical compounds, but the disease rages in the veins like a pent-up fire, nud some day breaks out in a volcanic eruption that eats up the body. Ayer's Sarsaparilla goes to the root. It makes the fountain clean and the waters are clenn. It makes the root'good and the fruit is good. It gives Nature the elements she needs to build up the broken down constitution—not to brace it up with stimulants or patch it up on the surface. Send for Dr. Ayer's Curebook, and learn more about the cures effected by this remedy. It's sent free, on request, by the J. C.

Eatertainlng Sketch of Monsieur ties- chanel, the DUtlnfrne VnrlMan. We have a new president of the :hamber. He Is worthy to lave himself in the silver bath of De Moray, and to act the part of host in the tapestried Salle des Fetes. Deschauel has those social gifts and talents for which so many women are remarkable. No woman could have more tact, charm, quick repartee, or a keener feeling for what Is elegant, distingue, refined. He dances to perfection, has an elegant figure, and a face that would be of feminine beauty were the forehead not so virile. The well-cut profile Is one for Sevres, alabaster, or ;ameo. It looks delicate, but If you examine It you will find it strong. He was nursed on Greek and Latin, but took most kindly to Greek. I suspect him of a weakness for Alclbiades, Pericles, Aspasla, and the society that gathered round them. Nobody talks of love at an epicurean banquet with more Anacreontic feeling than the new "Mr. Speaker." Now that I think of It, he Is in some respects a kinsman of Moore, but received a better education and has a harder head. Had he been born to wealth he might have grown up a dandy; but he was born the son of a prescript of the coup d'etat at Brussels (1876), and was reared in honorable poverty. As it is, his dreas Is merely elegant, and a good deal ol the elegance Is thrown into It by thf wearer. There Is no better drawing room actor. He is a very clever orator, though his speeches are over- studied. But he is a first-rate lecturer, as his father was before him, Such a man must have aristocratic leanings. He would have been in Athens with Alexander and Aristotle as against the disciples of Demosthenes. But I do not think he realizes what a vast distance lay between Athens and Corinth, though they were but 30 miles or so apart. A Corinthian republic perhaps would suit him better than an Athenian. M. Emlle Deschanel, the speaker's father, was alsc an Athenian In education and feeling, but had no particular taste for elegance, except In literature. He went In, as a professor of classic literature, for analysis of the feminine heart. 1 have somewhere two little keepsakee he once upon a time gave me on "Le Blen qu'on dit des Pemmes" and "LA Mai qu'ou dit des Femmes." He was a worshiper of Racine, and discovered endless keys to his tragedies. They turned in the rusty old locks and were wonders of ingenuity. Throughout the empire Prof. Deschanel had a blacl< mark against him. He nearly caused the interdiction of certain courses oi lectures In the Rue de la Palx by his expositions of Shakespeare. Pool Badinguet had just been holding out the olive branch to the Bishop of Orleans and patronizing Darboy, Archbishop of Paris, the future martyrs of the commune. Deschanel pere found In this a parallel with Richard III. between the two bishops. It was seized by the audience. I never heard anything more spirited and more amusing than the lecture. The passages relating the Richard and the bishops were admirably read. He also gave a lecture on Juliet's love affairs, which brought pocket handkerchiefs to eyes. Romeo he thought a poor creature. But love is blind, and all the interest of the play was centered in Juliet. Prof. Deschanel has now a chair at the Sorbonne and a seat in the senate.—London Truth. Mounting Photographs. Amateur photographers are often so situated that they must mount their own prints or leave them scattered about exposed to the danger of getting lost, torn or disfigured. The proper paste for mounting them is supposed to be unobtainable, save through expert hands, and for this reason many valuable and interesting prints are wasted. The very best paste for mount- Ing prints Is made from ordinary laundry starch, not the sort that comes in packages and is recommended for glossing, but the common kind. Put a heaping teaspoonful of this In a tin vessel, pour on a very little cold water to dissolve it, then add water enough to make it quite thin. Have ready a little boiling water, then stir this into the starch paste until the mixture first grows milky-looking, then transparent and thick. Allow this to stand until It is cool and use at once as a paste for mounting prints. Apply with a rather thin, flat brush. Do not use any more than is required to coat the paper, and be specially careful to leave no lumps or puddles on the surface. Lift the print carefully and place It on the card in precisely the position required. Commence at one edge and gently press the print with a paper cutter, or, for lack of that, a silver knife. This will remove all air bubbles and cause the print to adhere firmly to the card, Some paper requires rolling and burnishing; this may be done at any time, but it is better to use paper than does not need this process.

PIKKHAM:— It is -with pleasure that t add my testimony to your list, hoping that it may induce others to avail themselves of your v&l* liable medicine. "After the birth of my little girl, three years ago, my health was very poor. I had leticorrhoea badly, and a terrible bearing-down pain which gradually grew worse, until I could do no Work. Also had headache nearly all the time, and dizzy feelings. Men« struations were very profuse, appearing every two weeks. " I took medicine from a good doctor, but it seemed to do no good. I was becoming alarmed over my condition, when I read your advertisement In a paper. I sent at once for a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com- ponnd, and after taking two-thirds of the bottle I felt so much better that 1 send for two more. After using three bottles I felt as strong and well as any one. " I think it is the best medicine for female weakness ever advertised, and recommend it to every lady I meet suffering 1 from this trouble." Maternity is a wonderful experience and many women approach it wholly unprepared. Childbirth under right conditions need not terrify women. The advice of Mrs. Pinkhom is freely offered to all expectant mothers, and her advice is beyond question the most valuable to bo obtained. If Mrs. Paxton had written to Mrs. Pinkham before confinement she would have been saved much suffering. Mrs. Pinkham's address is Lynn, Mass. ^ Intervention.
