Bf»6* Jlurd.Friocipal of the Lyndon i, was on our streets Thursday af- very 1&& «t "Excepting its handful of magnificent statesman and its military herocn," says the most recent writer upon America, "the people owe more to Dartmouth's physician-teacher than to any one man." ' • "Inevery walk of life, among the highest ofiiceholders at Washington, in the homes of the best people in the large cities, among the every day folks of the country, families in comfortable circumstances, families that 'live from hand to mouth'and could not, if they wfehed^ffofd'theTervices'o^f~an"y~ "but an ordinary physician—everywhere I have met people to whom Paine'a celery compound has been a blessing." The story of the life-work of .this giant among men has been often told and is familiar to most readers. The likeness above is probably the best por- him,yet printed. It was the world-famed discovery by Prof. Phelps of an infallible cure for those fearful ills that result from an impaired nervous system and impure blood which has endeared the great doctor to the world and made his life an era jn the practice of medicine. Prof. Phelps was born in Connecticut and graduated in medicine at Yale. . His unusual talent soon brought him reputation and prominence among his professional brethren. First he was elected to tbe professorship of anatomy and surgery in the Vermont University. Next he was appointed lecturer on materla medica and medical botany in Dartmouth College. The next year, he was chosen profesesor of the chair then, vacated by Prof. Bobby, and occupied the chair, the most important one in the country, at the time he first f orm- ulajed hJB_mgstjremarkabIe prescription. - " In view of the overwhelming testimony to -the value of Pal no's celery compound that has recently appeared from men apd women of cation a: reputation, the picturejDf Prof. particularly Interesting. . I The fact is, Paine's celery compound is not a patent medicine; it is not a Bar- saparilla; it is not a mere tonic; it is not an ordinary nervine—it is as far beyond them all as the diamond is superior to-cheap glass. It makes people well. It is the one true specific recognized and prescribed today by .eminent practitioners for diseases arising from a debilitated nervous system. Prof. Phelps gave to his profession a positive cure for sleeplessness, wasting strength, dyspepsia, biliousness, liver complaint, neuralgia, rheumatism, all nervous diseases and kidney troubles. For all such complaints Paine's celery compound has succeeded again and again where everything else has failed. No remedy was ever so highly recommended, because none ever accomplished so much. Today Paine's celery compound stands without competition for feeding exhausted nerves and building lip the strength of the body, It cures radically and permanently. The nervous prostration and general debility from whlqh thousands of women suffer so long that it finally gets to be a second nature with them-all this suffering and despondency can be very soon removed by properly feeding the nerves, and re- i placing the unhealthy blood by a fresher, more highly vitalized fluid, A healthy increase In appetite and a corresponding gain in weight and good spirits follow the use of Paine's celery compound. . Paine's celery compound is the most remarkable medical achievement of this last half of the nineteenth century. Harry Kellogg went to Aurora Friday to attend the I. O. 0. delegate meeting.

A Scene of \Vlld Cohfuslon at a Public • Vert orinauce la Birmingham* An exciting incident occurred at Blngley ball, Birmingham, after the close ct a public performance which is being given there. The entertainment is called the ''World's Fair" and consists of a collection of shows, Including a circus and a menagerie. At the. conclusion of the entertainment 'on Monday, shortly after 11 p. m., the lion trainer, Orlando Macomo, thought it necessary to remove a Ikm es 8 'lately added to the menagerie from the small den in whlch^he waa placed on arrival into one la which she" would liavo the companionship'of other animals of her own breed already trained, says the London Tlrn^s, While the change waa being effected the electric light waa Suddenly cut off and the men who were holding.up the cage to the level of the van containing the trained llous became panic-stricken and dropped it. UnfOftunately the door v had just been opened to allow the lionesa to pass through and as the den fell to the ground she escaped and made her way into the center of the building. , A scene of wild confusion.-endued, the attendants fearing every moment that the lioaesa would spring upon them. Hgjtpily, ehe made across the liali to the eiaeu os' wfriflij the circus 'horses m«lea w^re tethered. turned her attention apparently to a rough-coated horse, which , had that morning been through the first stages of training for the circus. No one saw the lioness attack her prey, but it was afterward found that she had sprung upon the horse's neck, digging her claws into his shoulder. The animal shrieked with pain and terror was BO general among the others tethered near by that two mulea broke loose and went careering round the hall, When the, lights were again turned on the escaped lionesa was still clinging to the nexik of the horse, whose flesh was part-, ly eaten away. The l&n trainer at once went forward with a loaded gun, -which, after three futile attempts, he discharged full ia the face of the savage 'beast, killing her upon the spot, the lionesa and the horse falling dead upon the ground together. In the darkness and confusion one of the attendants had h.ia hand mangled by a lion, having incautiously grasped the bar of the den, One of the elephants iu his fright broke down his house and rushed trumpeting into the middle of the arena, but was secured before any mischief had been doue.« The extinguishing of the electric light appears to have been due to a misunderstanding of the manager's order, which was intended to apply oaly tq tho public por* tioa of the hall, loi- Bulling Qnc«n». Wh*n a queen Is balled, you'll find a bunch of bees as iarge fts a hickory nut or larger, that seem to cling together in a very eolld manner. You can't pull the bee* apart, and you may roll the ball over and over, saya Texas Farm and Ranch. ; If a BtranfTG queen in thrown into a hive, she Is usually balled, and' as nearly aa we can make but, the process ia flomei.hln'g Ilka 'this: The bees seize the queen at Various points till she ia entirely surrounded, then other beea seize the ones that have hold of the queen, and In .this position th«y remain fixed for hours, until the queen la dead if a strange worker is thrown Into the hlv,e, ehe isn't treated the same as a queen, and nothing but a queen is ever balled. The worker may toe bitten or stung, brat Btref Balled. The tailing been, generally make-a hissing sound, unlike the noise they make at any other time. Whether that proceeds from apger or what, -we do not know. Sometimes bees will ba|l their own queen, usually for the sake of protecting her. In the middle of .a ball of her own bees, It certainly seems she ought to be safe from foes. T(ou can not pull the bees apart BO as to free the queen, and If you should succeed in getting some of the 'bees away, or. should manage to get the queen loose, the bees will immediately. seize her: again. ' Perhaps the quickest way to get the queen free Is to thro-w the ball into cold water. The little miscreants will scramble to get out of the water as Jlvely as they can, and at once seem to forget all about-the queen, leaving her to her own fate. Water is not always at hand, and you can blow emoke upon'the ball. If you blovi^ hot smoke upon them, OB usually you will If you hold the nozzle close enough, you will at once"fi6arthoTIueen p fl doom; for the beea -will promptly sting 'her:, but if you hold tho smoke at a distance and keep up a strong stream of cool smoke, the bees will soon conclude they want to find Bomo place with a purer atmosphere. Honey Farming. ' The honey trade in this country has grown to great proportions, for honey has ceased to be a luxury, says tho New York Tribune.' "It forms part of the grocer's otock. in the smallest hamlet and bakcrfl and candy makers and patent medicine men use it by the hogshead. There are several firms in this 'city-who regard an order of ?1,000, $1,500..or $2,000 worth Just as a dry goods merchant looks on an order for fifty yards ofimuslln. New York, Boston and Chicago are the centers of the trade in this country, ; and London rules the world. The supply is steady, for if-.there is a shortage in one part of the country or the world, another part la sure to make it up. There IB no use In attempting to make an .estimate of the value of the cropf but It will go well Into the millions. It Iff known that there are 80,000 beekeepers in the United States, and manywho are unknown. Honey comes from all parts of the country, but California and the northern states supply the greater, part. The southern atates do no.t furnish as much as would be expected, partly because people are not paying' attention to the work, and partly because bees are not cared for as -well as at the north. .The tooney. which the southern states do send is . different from that- of the other states; the produet-of-Florida is-considered-the best,. but that la only as a cheaper grade. '• Bralni In the Poultry Yard. Not long ago, says'an exchange, an hour was spent with a farmer who, •willing to work, is not yet able to see the returns for his labors says Michigan Fruit Grower, Years of experl- eace should,have fitted him for-success, as a poultry keeper, because he likes the business, yet the neglect of a few fundamental steps prevents him from' realizing. 'His hen-houses gav_e no evidence of a thorough sweeping for months; the grain is fed in heaps, where the. hens and chicks can gorg& themselves. There has been no separation of the flock, and liberal feeding has made the hens overfat. The grain has all been thrashed, at a cost of 6 to 8 cents -per bushel, though the bens would do better If they, had the work to do themselves. There was no evidence of a winter supply of, grit and gravel and no sign of a' bone mill or block where.-fresh bones could be crushed. If that flock pays the ex- pense.bill for the next five months, it will do well, yet it was as good a flock of hena and pullets as one would ask for. It is the neglect v of these lit-, tie things which, taken singly, may not .count for much, but collectively they settle the question for the and not In his favor. Packing Butter.-rlt Is unfortunate that there are Bp_manx .different kinds of fine butter and so many varying styles of packing. All the creameries in one section at least, ought - to- -co-: operate arid endeavor to be uniform one with another.
