I did not believe it, but like a drowning man grasping at a straw I commenced taking No-To-Bac. The effects were magical, it destroyed the nerve craving, and desire for cigarettes. Two boxes, would you believe it, made me well and strong. I have gained mentally, physically, in vigor and manhood, and with the brain free from the nicotine and a breath no longer befouled with tobacco smoke I am so happy to-day to write No-To-Bac did it all a year ago, so the cure is time tested and tried, not only in my own case, but several of my friends who toave been also cured.

The story of the recent attack of brigands upon the little town of Tortoli, in Sardinia, reads like a page>out of the history of the middle '.ages. The robbers, more than 100 in .number, descended upon the town from the mountains. They were armed to the teeth and carefully masked, .as if Jthev were-::afraidi of^betng-_i^tttlflad.. Their first proceeding ~waslo~sTa"flon" pickets at the end of every street leading into the open country; 'then the main body entered the T tow.n, shouting and yelling and firing their rifles, in order to intimidate tthe 'inhabitants. The garrison consisted of < only two gendarmes in charge -of a 'brigadier. These three brave fellows turned °out on hearing the firing, and, .being joined by several courageousiand well- armed citizens, opposed the brigands' advance. The fight which ensued lasted several hours, and dusk ihad set in before the defenders <of ithe'town were finally routed, leaving'the'briga- dier dead on the ground ,and the two gendarmes and several eitizens grievously wounded. The brigands now spread all over the town, helping themselves to everything i©f value exposed in the shops, and breaking into and looting private houses. The in- ihabitants were terrorized, .and .nobody ventured into the streets. The strongest detachment <of rob- 'feers made for the house of Sig. Depon, 'formerly syndic of Tortoli, and w-ell- Jcnown to be possessed of ample means. The servants had been wanned >of the projected attack And had ibolted and barred the house. The brigands, however, soon forced an <en- traaee, ,and after a short fight, to which 'the syndic's coachman was, ithe defenders fled. The robbers then went through the house and secured, .among other spoils, 27,000 lire in gold, 20,000 lire in paper currency, and jewelry worth P.OOO lire- With tfcus .and other booty they •marched ©J 'to their retreat in the hills, A Confederate . There is a two story log house about Oight miles from Batesville, Ark., on the White river, which has a history, according to the Kansas City Journal. The house is now "sealed" so that the rough log exterior is hidden be- 1 hind very ordinary looking weatherboarding. This is the home of Julia Pritchard, who was famous during the war as a female Confederate spy. She did valuable service for the confederacy, and was long and often sought by the Federal troops. She was never captured. "When I passed through Batesville," said a young woman. Who recently returned from a visit to Arkansas, "1 hoard of Mrs. Pritchard and determined to visit her. The door was opened to me by a tall woman, with black hair and a pair of eyes to match. She was so quiet in her demeanor that I was surprised when she told me that she was Julia Pritchard. She took me through her house and talked entertainingly of her work as a spy. In an upper room she showed me the secret that kept her from being captured during the whole war. She pointed out what to all appearances was a log in the wall like all the rest. Then she touche d a spring concealed ingeniously in the back of the log, .and the log moved •out and showed a snug opening just large enough for a person to lie in and move about enough to keep from becoming cramped. " 'I remember well one time in particular when this saved me from the Federal troops, 1 said she. 'I had been down to the spring yonder getting a pail of water when I saw a troop of blue coated soldiers galloping towards me from across the river. " 'I knew they were after me so I dropped my pail and broke for the house. I ran, and climbing upstairs, got into this hiding place and pulled the log shut. I lay there quietly and soon heard the heavy clanking step of the soldiers as they stamped about down stairs searching for me. "•'They turned the furniture over and broke everything in sight. I could hear them swear as they vainly sought for me. Then they came upstairs, and as they looked in every conceivable place they made the air blue with their curses. ' 'She is here, 1 know," said one who must have been, the captain. "I saw her come in." There was no doubt about this, as all testified to seeinc me come into theihouse. I heard one suggest tkaifc the -house be burned down. Ttoey Old Canteen.

How Farragut Carae to the Korth. Just previous to the- fall of Norfolk, "Va., Admiral Farragut, himself of •Southern birth, as was also his true and noble wife, was invited by the emissaries of the insurgent chiefs to .join his fortune^ to their cause. He promptly declined, The effort to •change his purpose was repeated. STe was urged by every consideration •that was supposed could influence his pride or ambition, by the ties of consanguinity and place of birth, to side with his native South; he still re- tfused. Those chiefs well knew the man, They knewhim better than his •own government then did, and they •knew the lion'like qualities that •slumbered beneath his modest and Taabitually retiring de meanor, and the achievements of which he was capable when the latent powers of the man should be roused to active energy, Asa last effort to win him over to their cause, they offered him any position which he shoxild be pleased tomaroe. Admiral Farragut was a man of sincere but unobtrusive pi'ety, a piety as modest as his own habitual deportment; but this assault upon hie loyal virtue was more than his nature could endure, and, with a sudden and sailor-like burst of indignation, b,e replied, as he pointed to the emblem-of the republic, which floated near him— • "(Jentlemon, your efforts are useless.

Deafness Can Not be Cured by local applications, as they can not reach the diseased, portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure Deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed,- Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, 'which Is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
