The faefeffient for state regulated pawn- fehdpa received its great impetus from the action of that statesman-monk and social democrat, Savonarola, Who liberated the Florentines from oppression and gave them popular institutions. fhfcb other direction Were his services to the people more successful than in founding monti di pieta. The latv for creating his monti di pieta was passed in 1495» aild before many years they Were established in all the prin* cipal towns in Italy and had spread throughout Europe. The first mont de piete in France Was started at Avignon in I5?7j and still exists. Their establishment in the Netherlands dates from the Sixteenth Century. A Spanish priest, l)on Francisco Piqtier, founded the mont de piete of Madrid in 1705,starting with the modest capital of 6 pence, Which he found in the offertory box he had placed in the church to re* ^ceive contributions for the institution. By the end of the seventeenth century there were monts de piete, formed moie or less after the Italian model, in most countries of Europe. The characteristics of the original institutions remain with those of to day, although they have long eince ceased to be managed by the priests, or to bo under the influence of the churches. The main object, which Savonarola and -other early founders had in view—the protection of the poor from usurers and their relief in periods of distress—is still maintained, and the monts de piete in all Latin countries are associated with charitable institutions and hospitals. Poor Indeed 1 The prospect of relief from drastic cathartics for persons troubled with constipation Is poor indeed. True they act upon the bowels.but tills they do with vlolence.and their operation tends to weaken the Intestines, and is prejudicial to the stomach. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is an effectual laxative, but it neither gripes nor en- leoblcs.' Furthermore, it promotes digestion and u regular action of the liver and Uidneys. It is an efficient barrier against remedy for malarial complaints and rheumatism, ana is 01 great benefit to the weak, nervous and aged. As a medical stimulant it can not be surpassed. Physicians cordially recommend it, and us professional indorsement Is fully borne out by popular experience. Appetite and sleep are both improved by this agreeable Invigorant and alterative. Disgracing Herself. Mrs. Smartset—For mercy's sake, don't let me hear you talk about books in society again. Cultured daughter—Dear me! Why not? Mrs. Smartset—Strangers will think you have been a cash girl in a book store. How It May Happen. "Jemmy crickets, she's got the rickets," whispered one beau to another in the company of a very pretty girl. Truly she was very beautiful, but there ^ was 1 a twitching about the nerves of the face which showed suffering. "No," said the other, "it's neuralgia and she's a martyr to it." St. Jacobs Oil was suggested as the world- renowned cure for it. Did she try it? Yes,- and was cured by it and—married "one of the fellows" afterwards. The use of the great remedy for pain will not bring about a marriage, but in its cure of pain it will vbring about conditions of health to make life more enjoyable. No man or woman ought to marry who is a sufferer from chronic pains. Wo should not wed woe to win only wretchedness. Some people consider no resolution to be of any account unless it will stretch.

How She Remembered. Binks—I don't see how you can 'remember, the birthdays -of all the children. • •>. • Mrs. Binks—It's very easy. The first was born on Aug. 17. I remember it because on that day you gave me a- pearl necklace with my name and the date on the clasp. The second was born July 30, On that day you gave me a 50-cent book with my name and the date on the fly-leaf. The third was born. May 0. On that day you got mad at a millinery bill which had just been sent in and it isn't paid yet. He Know. There is a Vast difference befwoeti a learned man and an ignoramus. For instance, when Fogg asked Dund ahead how it was that birds could fly, Dundahead could only reply: "'Cause they can." But when Kutchins was asked the same question, he settled his head in his collar, pursed up his lips, and delivered himself thus? "The secret of the bird's flight is due entirely to the fact that the bird possesses the power to^sustain itself in and to propel itself through the air." Fogg very truely remarks that the solution seems easy enough after it is found, but none but a wise man would have discovered it."—Boston Transcript. To California "Without Change.

Many years ago Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute,,Buffalo, N. Y., compounded this medicine of vegetable ingredients which had an especial effect upon tlie stomach and liver, rousing the organs to healthful activity as well as purifying and enriching the blood. By such means the stomach and the nerves are supplied with pure blood; they will not do duty without it any more than a locomotive can run without coal. You can not get a lasting cure of Dyspepsia, or Indigestion,. by taking artificially digested foods or pepsin—the stomach must do its own work in its own way. Do not put your nerves to sleep with so- ealied celery iulxuirear it -' ie " l>etter ~ to so-* 0 the seat of the difficulty and feed the nerve cells 'on the food they require. Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Biliousness and Nervous Affections, such as sleeplessness and weak, nervous feelings are completely cured by the "Discovery." It puts on healthy flesh, brings refreshing sleep and invigorates the whole system. Mrs. K. HENKE, Chicago, III., writes meut as simply wonderful.
