Away 'out Gratiot Avenue, fat- front din amd turmoil of the business e, there ate nmtty attractive homes, the intersecting streets are wide^ cleatt and shaded by large leaf-covered trees, and the people you meet are typical of industry, economy and honest toil. There are many pretty residences, but none more inviting in its neatness and hbme4ike comfort than that of Mr. Levi fils'eyY the well-knoWtt builder and Contractor, at 74 Mofan street, just off (jti'fttiot. Mr. Elsey is an bid resident Of Detroit, having moved here about forty years ago. lie has erected hundreds of houses in different parts of the city; and points With pride to such buildings as the Dewberry. & McMullan and Camp&W blocks, in which he clis played his ability as a superintendent, "I have seen'Detroit grow from a village to a city*" he observed yesterday in conversation with the writer "attd I don't think there are many towns in America to-day equal to it in point of beauty.. I know almost every body in the city, and an incident whicl recently happened in my life has inter csted all my friends. "It is now about eight years since '. was stricken down with my first cas of illness. One cold, blustering day I was down town and through my natu-.i ral carelessness at' that time I permitted myself to get chilled right through. \Vhen I arrived home that evening I felt a serious pain in my left leg. ' 1 bathed it that night but by morning I found it had grown worse. In fact it was so serious that \ sent for my family physician, and he informed me that I was suffering from varicose reins. My leg swelled up to double its natural sisie and the pain volume. The agony was simply awful., I was laid up and never left my bed for eight weeks. At times I felt as though I would grow frantic with pain. ,My leg Was-bandaged and propped up inbed at an agio of 30 degrees in order I to keep the blood from flowing to my ^extremities. '.-" .., 'I had several doctors attending me, ['but I believe my own judgment 'helped Vine better than theirs After a seige of .two,months I could move around, still |l was on the sick list and had to doctor |mys,elf for years.. 1 was never really loured and suffered any amount of [ anguish. ' "About two years ago I'noticed an \ article in the Evening News about my {friend, Mr. Northrup, the "Woodward javenue merchant. In an interview iwith him he stated that" he, had used 5r. Williams' Pink J?ills for Pale People and they cured him. I knew him very well, having built his hovis'e out Wood- •waSrd 'A ve., and I thought I would follow his suggestion. I must confess I did lf so"with marvelous success. From the time I began to take the Pink Pills I felt myself growing to be a new man; They acted on me like a magical stimulant. The pain ,departed and I soon was ? as, - strong - and healthy as everi Uefore trying the Pink Pills I had iifccd anv amount of other,.medicine.without any'inoticeable benefit. But the pills cured me and I was myself again. •'""When a person finds'-himself relieved and enjoying health he is apt to, expose himself again to another attack pi illness, Some three months ago I •shopped taking ' the Pink Pills, and from the day Idid so I noticed a change in my condition, A short time since I renewed my habit of taking them with the flame beneficial results which met one formerly. I am again' nearly as strong as, eve'r, although I, air^a-man ab.ouf 50 years' 'of age/; I'tell ypni sir, the £ink Pills are a" most wonderful medicine and if they do as well in' other cases as they did in mine they areHhe best in the world, I freely recommend them to any sufferor." ' , Dr, Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a condensed form, all the elements neq- essary to give new life and richness to .the blood and restore shattered nervefi, 'They are an unta^ing specific for such diseases as locoiflotor abasia,- 'partial paralysis, St, 'Vjtus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the after effect of la grippe,.palpitation pf the heart, pale and sallow complexions, all forms of weakness either in male or female. Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be 1 sent post paid on receipt of price, (i5Q cents a box, wr six boxes for $3,50—they are never sold in bulk ov by the 100) by addressing Dr. Williams* Medicine Co,, ' N.

These one hundred young women aci as models for the first-class artists 01 New York. ( • It is said that no young Woman ever perfectly proportioned all over, If she is right in arm her waist is usually too long for her length of body, •and if waist and body are equally adjusted then there-is trouble with hei outlines; and where an artist looks to •find a lovely curve he meets a crue hollosv or too much adipose to bi graceful. The greatest trouble is knock knees, and few, are the young women who, whether from high heel or careless walking, do not have the slight outward tendency of the calve which betokens this defect.

Miss Gold is petite, but so perfectly proportioned Uirtt her smallness is' not noticed by an artist.
