JaJ. Mr of fidii& feaplds, Alpeha County, i BKfe Mel toe-eft «t sad; cripple, of her ffiehdS know the story of fifef recovery; for the benefit of those Wftd dd not fre publish It to-day. Eight years ago she-toas taken w.ith ftferlrous prostration* and in a -few ftionths With miiscular and inflammatory rheumatism. It. • aftected • her heart, theH her head. Her feet be* tsftme 60 swollen she could wear hoth- itig on thefti; her hands! were drawn all out of shape. Her eyes were, swollen Shut more than half the time, her knee joints terribly swollen and for. eighteen months she had to be hold up to be dressed, One limb became entirely helpless, aftd the skin was so -dry and 'Cracked that it Would bleeds During these eight years she'"had been treated by a score of physicians,, and has also spent much time at-Ann Arbor under best medical advice. All s'aid her trouble was brought on by hard, work and that medicine would 'hot-cure, and that rest Was the only thing which Would ease her. After going to live with her daughter she became entirely helpless and could not even raise her arms to cover herself at night.' The Interesting part of the story follows in her own words: "I was urged to try Dr. Williams' t>lnk Pills for Pale People ^and at last did so. In three days after I commenced taking Pink Pills I could sit up and dress myself, and after using them. • six weeks I went home and commenced working.' I'continued taking the pills,' untlLnow I begin to forget my crutches and can go up and down steps without aid. I am truly a living wonder. ; , "Now, if I can say. anything to induce those who have suffered .as I have to'try Pink Fills, I shall gladly do so. If other like sufferers will try Pink Pills according to directions, they will have reason to thank God for creating men who are able to conquer that terrible disease, rheumatism. I have in my own -neighborhood recommended Pink Pills for the after effects, of la grippe, and weak women with impure bloo,d, and with good results." • .- Mrs. Todd is very strong in' hetf faith ' In the curative powers of Pink Pills, and says they have brought a poor, helpless cripple .back to do her own milking, churning, washing, Lowing,. knitting and in fact about all of her household duties. Dr. Williams' Pink 1 Pills contain all the elements necessary to give new life and richness ftp the blood and restore ' shattered nerves'; They are for sale by all'druggists, or may be had by mail from'Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, .Schenectady, N. Y., for 50c per box, or six boxes for $2.50. • DOINGS AND SAYINGS. at ih6 i*oi«t tif ft, tilth, Fo*fefcd Hi* Son t« Jttitiljt F*t>m a Mn*t—E!ot>linnU Fecit Ing Untile*—A Cnttitittfe t*ig.

On arriving at the water the elephant, ostensibly in obedience to the diild's command,- lies down and enjoys himself, just, leaving a portion of his body, like a small island above water, on which the small child stands and yells, and yells all the more if he has several companions ol his own age, also in charge of their elephants, all wallowing' in the water around him. If Hie child slips off his Island,, the elephant's trunk promptly replaces Him in safety/ The little, urchins ns they grow up, become first mates to .mahouts, and eventually arrive at tho dignity of being ^mahouts themselves. — Pittsbm-g - 'Game "Warden ,Atwobd .of Maine thinks he has a .great disease: the doctor diagnosed it as "dacryocystos- yringokataklelsis."

It reached New England in 1870, and has since' multiplied in an alarming way. , 'Worshipers at the United Brethren church in Bellprove, near Lebanon, Pa., were startled by the report of a pistol. Two disorderly young men were examining it,in church, when it was discharged, and'one of them was * shot in the arm. Miss Morrison, the San Francisco girl who was recently graduated from the medical department of the university of California with the highest honors of the class, had the pleasure of receiving the ringing applause from the men she had defeated when her success was announced. There are fifty lobster smacks plying along the coast of Maine, and thirty-seven of this fleet find a mar- ; feet for, their lobsters in Portland. It ' is. estimated that they landed in P.ort- land during the last twelve months "4,000,000 lobsters, for which the deal' ers paid not less than $320,009, CHARACTERISTICS. it, The boy pursued, and after a^lively cli'aso succeeded in .recovering, the call, which he hung triumphantly on the topgnllart yard arm. and then sat OH the yard to rest himself.

This- is a. small .wooden (lisk..iwhich caps -the top of a mast; it has shcnvcsholes through which run the halyards tat hoist tiler colors to the masthead. The truck of theConstitutlon was perhaps a scant foot in diameter:. Having reached 'the truck, the fool- hfirdy- lad proceeded to clinib on to it and nctimliy. stand upon the truck., perched in iho air ISO feet abo'v the water, In European men-of-wai'. the •stays'-reach-up the truck, and sailors who hare tried this perilous feat have been able to get. down, by nteftfls of the'stays.' But the",.stiiys of the -Constitution did npt reatch within five or six feet ot ! the truck, and tiici'e was no possible wny for the lad to cllinb'dpwu, His 'death, appeared inevitable. -The •whole ,.0rew stood aghast-with horror, evory instant expecting to see,the 'boy. lost ,.hls balance and fall,. when be must be crushed upon the di*ek. In the meantime some one on shore carried to Commodore Hull news of his son's perilous position. •' The man •who had quailed not when the balls of the enemy's batteries sung about his ears, trembled : now. He sprang, in to his boat, and'ordered the crew to pull off the frigate as if for their lives. On reaching the ship, lie ordered a musket to be brought, to him. Having cocked it,• The commodore aimed the gnu at his son. and fiercely shouted: "Jump, or I'll shoot you!" The. lad hesitated a. moment; then, perhaps for the first time fully realized his awful peril, he gathered himself tORther and sprang out to clear the side of the 'ship. With the rush of a. ha/.vk diving on its prey, the boy plunged into the sea, fortunately feet foremost. As he rose to the surface a. dozen sailors-plunged in to .bring him on board. After ascei-t aining that his son had received no serious injury the 1 commodore took him in to'the cabin, where, K it 1 ,is,'said, after certain ( paternal ad• monitions, the-lad received some time- •ly and wholesome corrections.—From "The Last Voyage of the Constitution," by S. G. W. Benjamin in St. .Nicholas. The This story is beyond .-doubt original' to ^a pan in its preseht fflrnv -but' It bears remarkable" resoinblatice to' aii- .pthe.r, celebrated judgmebt given more ..than .two thousand years ago on the. other side of the world. About a century and ah alf ago a wo- inn who was a servant in the house of a daimyo had a little girl born to' her.' was inconvenient i'or her to have the child with her in the. iliiiiii- yo's 'mansion^.-mid sp she put tlie lif'tle one out to luirsp with a woman in tho neighboring village. The child, grew to be very intelligent, and the foster- mother, who was a heartless'woman, thought she saw an .opportunity to earn money through the .girl's services, and determined to keep her. Accordingly, when the'mother's term of service, expired, and sho oame to get back her child, the foster-mother treated her claim as false. the child was her own, ..and utterly refused to give her up. ' 'So 'at' last they cniiie'before Oka, the town magistrates 'of Yedo, who, aftet some thought, ;hit upon a novel plan of deciding. He placed the child between the two mothers, had each' one take an arm Of the. child, andLtheii' ordered them to pu'lll -He c'orild then tell, he^said, which one deserved -to have the child.' The foster mother, thinking only of winning, pulled with all her might, 'but the true mother, full of her affection for her child, couldn't bear to inflict on it such brutal pain; ami she let go as soon as. she felt the other womo.ii pulling. "The child is mine!" .exclaimed the foster- mother, triumphantly. .*Not so!" said Oka sternly; yau arc a pretender; this other is the true mother." Then the false mother confessed her deception, and begged for pardon. The people, when they heard of the'judg- ment, were full.of admiration for the .penetration and sngacity of their great magistrate.—Harper's Young People. •An Oxford county, Me., judge and .farmer,-fond of a joke, sold some land i ',to » neighbor, ( 'Now," said the judge, -*-;$* y° u bad my brains you could do ^'eomeitbing a>farming." .

One little pig was not so large or so strong as the rest, and he was jostled and crowded about until he could get very little, to eat. He could not grow like his , mates, for his r appetite , was never appeased. He squealed his protests loudly into the ears ( .of his selfish brothers and sisters, ,but not one of them gave heed. Even the mother fcould not, or would not, remedy the injustice,- and poor piggy went on struggling, lighting squealing against fate, seeming to grow smaller and thinner every day tinti! he was spoken 'of only as "the little runt.' It was. very evident that he- would' be' far in the rear when his /mates reached pork-barrel dignity, xraless there came a change. The thought was hard for a spirited pig to endure, and as his kin would give no relief, ho set about finding a remedy himself. Like all earnest searchers, he was successful, and presto, what achauge! Ouy piggy ceased to squeal, his sides expanded in a most suggestive manner and he began to grow fnt and sleek, "I wonder what does ail that cow?" complained Fawner J, one day, "I feed her well, but she's been drying up for a week or two, There's something funny about it, too; sometimes she gives a good deal of milk, tJiejJ nothing at all. • What can be the matter?" But the mystery was solved when piggy was espied sitting evect as any milkmaid and, minus the bucket, milking as energetically. No wonder the cow mJlk; no wonder the little rvwt gi'ew fat, Then the sniart Jittje pig', was shut np, but he would find some' hole to crawl o«tj and ns I lo'ok from 'my window I often see my neighbor's cow searching for corn in toe stajk'flelcl, closely accompanied by her foster' enUd,-^ .Kfiys' ta Tlnjos, A Tuinc Croxv'a Booty. :He boldly pillaged the neighbors round. A woman -who lived near once caught him pecking at a pot-chceso she had made, a.nd put him to flight. He returned, and stole a.downy little chicken, one of a brood that belonged' to her. He' flew"'home with, it, and. laid it upon the ground. but alive and unharmed.' There were plenty oi' young chickens running about at horno but .Tim liover touched one of these'.' Anything bright and shining pleased his fancy very much. He. had no scruples about taking what did not belong to him. Like a niiser, he had a. hiding place for his treasures, and he was very careful not to go to it when he was watched. One day it was discovered in the barn quite by accident. Among other articles that he had secreted were found nails, screws, beads, bits of broken glass, and best of all a pair of earrings—and this grand collection was. the grand result of months of patient thievery! It was very uimcult to keep a lead- pencil in his vicinity. When he stole one, he would hold it in his claw and peck at it until the cedar wood was split in twain, after which he would remove the lead. If some one endeavored to take the pencil from him, he would dodge about, making desperate but ineffectual efforts to swallow his booty whole.—Malcom Frazer in St. Nicholas. ,.. .. , 'fWliidy, „... |^$om ft ti9p|t|lWj^|'^ m » PSW T<wrtl**B - Bullies, Tbe-wtele ^miiy of the ujabout be» co»ne, ae'jt were, parasites to tbe elephant, by JV^QBJ ttjey.earn, J h 8 ye ,moJftW ^yste^atjcHy ynder pf flttbe fiu» «f aa ^epAaati tot AVith tlie There is said to be in Indiana a boy who hears with his fingers.
