This is almost invariably true of death resulting froni lientt disease.

If you have any of the following symptom's ! shortness of breathj palpitation, irregular pulse, fainting and smothering spells, pditi in shoulder, side, or arm, j swollen ankles, etc, begin treatment immediately for heart disease. If you delay, the consequences may be serious. For over 20 years Dr. Franklin Miles, the eminent specialist, has made n profound study of heart disease, its causes and cure, and many of the leading discoveries in thui direction are due to him. His New Henri Cure is absolutely the only reliable remciiv for the cure of heart disease, as is provr by thousands of testimonials from grated; persons who have used it. James A. Pain, editor of the Corry, Fa., Ltwd< t. »tales: "After an apparent recovery from ii"-e months of la grippe, I fell on the street u, BCloufi from heart disease.

The president, vice president, and secretary shall constitute an executive committee, and when a loss occurs, they shall, as soon as practicable, repair to the place of loss and adjust the same; and if all members of this committee cannot be present, those who can be present shall fill the committee from the other members of the board: and if they cannot agree with the assured in the adjustment of loss, the matter shall be submitted to arbitrators chosen in the usual manner, whose award in writing shall be binding on the parties as to the amount of such loss, provided, always, that this company shall in no case be held liable for more than three-fourths the actual cash value of the property at the time it was destroyed. The company also reserves the right to rebuild or repair damages sustained.

The secretary shall be allowed, in making an assessment, to add such a sum to the actual loss as in the judgment of the executive committee shall be necessary to defray the current expenses of the company, provided this sum shall at no one time exceed " one mill on the dollar;" and further provided, that the assessment shall at no time exceed two per cent, for any one loss. It shall be the duty of such member of the company, within thirty days after receivpig such notice, to pay to the secretary the amount assigned as his proportion of the assessment.

If loss than one-half of the value of the took owned by the insured at the date of oss is insured, the amount for which this ompnny is liable will be the same propor- ion of three-fourths of the loss that the ,mount insured bears to one-half of the mount owned. 10. In case of loss of live stock by lighting it is desirable that when possible the nsured get one or two persons to examine lie animals immediately so as to make iroof of loss more satisfactory. Secretary Black Cord also adds: A careful examination of the articles 'f the association will sbow anyone vho may be interested in cheap and re- iablc farm insurance what we claim to .0.

The telegraph operators were telling stories. The tall man, who has held & key all over the country, had the floor. "You see » good many joked in the papers," said he, "about the culture of Boston and the habit people living there have of using big words and correct grammar and all that. Most of yon think that these joked have no foundation in faot. Now, I know better. I was receiving clerk in the Western Onion office there a good many years ago, and some of the messages handed in to me were corkers, "One summer! had the cable window. One day two women dressed in black and greatly agitated came in and incjuired the rate per word to London. I told them it Was 98 cents. They con' suited for a minute, and then one of them asked for a blank. I told them where the blanks were, and one of them wrote a message, The other took it and read it two or three times. "Then she came over to the window and asked again how much it was a word to London. 'Twenty-eight cents,' I told her. She looked at the message dubiously. The other woman came up to her and said, 'Don't you like it?' " 'No,' she said, 'I don't like it. That form is improper. You say that Charles suicided this morning, when it should be said that Charles committed suicide this morning.' " 'But,' said the other, 'if we put it in that way we will save 38 cents.' "The woman who objected turned this proposition over in her mind for a long time. Finally she said, 'I don't think that such syntax is excusable.' "The other took the blank and read the message a few dozen times. 'We're poor,' she said decisively after studying it in all its phases, 'and we can't save 38 cents any easier.' "This partially convinced the woman who objected. 'But what will our friends think?' she asked dubiously. " 'I suppose they will notice it, but , we can't help that.' Then the two women retired to one corner and had n consultation. After talking earnestly for 10 minutes they wrote out another message. So help me, this is the way I got it: 'Charles suicided this morning. False syntax used becu. in it is cheaper.' "And they paid me 28 cents a word for it. All of which," continued the tall operator, "illustrates one of the curious ways in which a woman "a mind works."—Buffalo Express. Down In Arkansas, "Well, Jim, how's the ague?" "Didn't I tell you about that? "Why, I went into old man Sharp's field one night about a week ago, and the old man got up .and loaded his gun in the dark, and cuss me if he didn't blow me full of two grain quinine pills. I hain't hod an ache nor shake since."—Life. West Virginia. West Virginia, with less than 800,000 inhabitants, has but three cities and is essentially a rural and half settled region. In spite of her enormous wealth in timber and mines also, many of her counties number only a handful of people. No West Virginia county has 50,000 inhabitants, and only 10 have \ more than 20,000, while 10 have less than 10,000 and two less than 5,000. In many of the mountainous counties the conditions of life are simple to the last degree, and the people are far removed from the great currents of national life in spirit as well as in distance and time.—New York Sun.
