First, you think it is a little cold; nothing but a little hacking cough; then a little loss in weight; then a harder cough; then the fever and the night sweats; The suddenness comes when you have a hemorrhage.

MANSER of East Third street, Newport, Ky., is the only 6»e living of the 200 Ulttle girls who scattered flowers before Gen. Lafa* yette when he visited Cincinnati in 1825. She is now H ...lMJPtiy. over /6 years old, auu was born in a farrtt house which at what is now the corner of Eighth and Plum streets in this city. In speaking of the great event Mrs. Manser said: "The girls were dressed in white, with sashes and caps of red, white and blue muslin. They carried white flags, with 'Welcome Lafayette to Cincinnati.' As the carriage which contained Lafayette, his son, Gen. Desha, who was then governor of Kentucky, and Gov. Morrow of Ohio, passed by, the children strewed the flowers before him. The carriage was drawn by four white horses. The little boys who were in the parade wore Lafayette pictures on their coats." When Lafayette was on his way up the river from''New Orleans to Cincinnati an expert pickpocket got in his work by stealing his watch. He regretted exceedingly its loss, because it was given to him by Washington, and on the outside of the case was engraved the following inscription: "Washington, to Lafayette." He gave a mln- MRS. M. E. MANSER. ute description of his watch to many of his friends, so that if it were ever found it could be easily identified. Every effort was made at the time to recover the watch, but without avail. He grieved over the loss for many a day, and at last gave up all hope ..of ever again seeing the precious timepiece. • Well, "seasons came and went," hut no trace of the watch could be found. At last, after a lapse of more than fifty years, lo, and behold! the precious relic was discovered in a pawnship in Nashville, Tenn. Although the "corroding land of time" dimmed outlines of the ovlng inscription, still there it was, plainly decipherable, "Washington to iBfayette." The proper authorities at once took possession of the watch. A thorough nvestigation was held, and all doubts were removed In regard to its identity. The president appointed a special commission to take the watch to France. But, alas! Lafayette was dead, and his son was dead, but a grandson still survived, and to him was presented the precious gift of Washington to his ancestor. The .French government appreciated highly the action of our president, and did all in its power to make the presentation ceremony interesting, Kffect or I.lino on the System, A medical scientist is authority for the statement that children and old people especially suffer from a lack ot lime in the system. Persons who habitually drink soft water, while they may enjoy immunity from certain ot the His of life, expose themsslves to others perhaps quite as much to bo avoided. Hard water helps the teeth and the bones by furnishing llme.whlch is necessary to health, growth and de-' velopment. Old persons who drink but little lose their teeth more quickly than those who take a reasonable' amount of drinking water. Lime, or food products in which it abounds, should be a part of the regular supply furnished to the system. One of the most valuable vegetables for this purpose is the yellow turnip or rutabaga, which should be given to growing children at'least once a week. Properly prepared, it Is very relishable ana its food value has never been appreciated. CttEftARV NOfES« Sufety or Rallroinl Travel.

First Lieut. W. H. Wa&seil, 2$d United States infantry, writing to his par ents, Mr. and Mrs. fidwih M. Wasaeli o Pittsburgh quoted by the Plttsburg Press: "I was shot at about 4 o'clock In the atfernotm of July 1 while storming El Caney, northeast of Santiago. 1 was looking through field giaases at the time ana the ball cut through the outer part of the little finger of the left hand, Joint next to the hand, then through the palm of the hand, out jus 1 below the Inde* finger, then itt the cheek about half an inch from the left corner of my mouth, back throvigh-my mouth, taking several back teeth.down ward through my neck, still downward and toward my splne.comlftg out about half way down my back, and about four inches from my spine. I haven't £ bone broken. I can swallow, and thank God, i am strong, and, aside from possible scars, I will be no worse off. 1 will never forget the sensation of being shot. We had been under fire all day—the hottest rain of bullets that men ever went up against. The Spaniards were all intrenched. They shot us from behind earthworks, blockhouses, trees and church towers. All at once It seemed as if I were lifted from the ground and whirled around and around, oh, so terribly fast, i never lost consciousness during tho sensation, i felt myself going, but i seemed to realize tkat if 1 let myself go it would be all over., so I took a brace, and, after what seemed an ago of this awful whirling, I was dropped to the ground. Then It seemed as It no one would notice that I had been hit. It seemed an age before I heard a man swear and say; 'They've alt Lieut. Wassell.' Ho picked me up to carry me down behind the crest of the hill, and what a storm of bullets the poor fellow got as h e raised me. i didn't know, how badly I was hurt, but from the blood gushing from my mouth and the pain in my back where tho bullet had left me, I imagined I was In it pretty badly. Capt. Lochinvar camo to me, and I remember telling him 1 did not know whether I was dono for or only scared to death. One of the men dressed me as well as he could with my first bandages, and I lay under a tree until about 6 o'clock. About that time some more Spaniards began a riot on the other side of me, and for a little while bullets from friend and foe whirled over me and struck near me. About sundown, the firing having ceased, I was carried about a mile to the brigade hospital. Here I was dressed. The doctors were worked to death and did their best. All night and all the next day our hospital was fired upon by Spaniards. Toward the 'evening of the second day I was put In a wagon and taken about three miles to the division hospital, which 1 left in the morning of the 3d to go to Slboney. Twelve of us rode In tho ambulance. It was a good ten-mile riclo over the most abominable road. That night they put me on board the Cherokee for Key West hospital. I didn't want to go, hut It was not a matter ol argument." CHICAGO'S BIG TREE. A big tree has been discovered near Chicago, said lo be the largest tree outside of California.
