THE P1B HOtt STOUT EOT STOUT7 EEMAKSASlE OP A MEtJMATlO StJf PEEEE. , All—t.oRt ttl* Flesti to file—rto-ttr He Oot Well an it Stfrotifr. (from, the Jft. Sterling, in., Republican.) Fe^V men are held in higher esteem iby tlieir fellow townspeople than Jas. W, Stout, of Riply, 111., and it is duo too doubt partly to this popularity that the record ofthe case has created such wide-Spread interest. While his ex* jjerience is not without an equal, yet it has been sufficiently reiriarkable to detnand the attention of thousands of people in Illinois, among whom are numbered some of the most eminent physicians. Ih January, J893, Mr. Stout was stricken with what was then believed to be sciatic rheumatism, and in a short time was barely able to hobble arcmnd on crutches, ^anrt it seemed to his friends that his days were mimbcred. To-day he is a strong, hearty looking tnan of 160 pounds. How this wonderful change was brought about is most interesting as told to a representative of the Republican by Mr. Stout himself: < "I was attlicted with sciatic rheumatism and lumbago in January, 18!)3. The sciatic nerve on the right side became affected in the hip, running «> down to the ankle and across the small of the back to the left side, and soon my whole system became afflicted, Causing me the most excruciating pain. In a very short time I became totally unable to attend to any business whatever, and the disease rapidly growing worse, I had to take to my bed, where I lay suffering almost continuously for months the most agonizing tortairc, scarcely being able to move or be moved. At. one time I lay for six weeks flat on my back,. the slightest movement causing me such pain as almost to throw me into convulsions. I cannot begin to express to you the intense pain I suffered. I was drawn, by the severeness of the malady, over to the left side; lost my appetite, had no desire for food, and wha.t little I did eat I could not digest, the digestive organs failing to per form their duty, adding greatly to my already precarious condition. For weeks at a time I was unable to eat or sleep, suffering all the time most intensely and at times fearing I would lose my reason, and would have welcomed death to relieve me of my sufferings. "I consulted with local physicians and some of the most eminent specialists of the larger cities throughout the country, some treating me for one thing and some for another, but without effect, and I received no relief whatever. One physician told me I had double curvature of the spine and would eventually become paralyzed. I spent hundreds of dollars in the short tame I was afflicted without receiving «he least benefit. My friends all thought that there' was no hope for ane whatever and said that 1 must die, and I myself had almost given nip in despair, when in September, 1898, .•about eight months after . 1 was first afflicted, my attention was called to Dr. WilJiams' Pink Pills for Pale People. Without much hope. I .-at once •sent to C._ F. Rickey & Co., Druggists, Mt. Sterling, 111., and procured some •of the pills anil immediately began taking them. Before long I became aware of a great change for ifflae better 'in my_ almost hopeless 'condition. My appetite came back and my digestive •organs performed theirnisuul 1'unctions properly. I took some moue and grew a-apidly better—could sit up in a chair and my body began to :sfera5ghten out; •continued the treatment-and in a short *ime was able to be about «n 'crutches. My recovery from that -fiine on was very rapid and assured. Mv right leg, which before I commenced" this mreat- iment was numb and dead, now experienced a pricking, tingling- sensation. I was enabled to throw -away my •crutches and walk upright .once oaoro .•among my fellows, a better man .physically than ever before. When first taken by the disease I weighed 100 pounds, was reduced to 115; 1 now. weigh 10(3, more than I ever weighed at .any time in my life. Yes, sir, I lay my recovery entirely to Pink Pills." Br. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo Beeple are an unfailing specific for «*eh diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the after effects of la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions, and all forms of weakness either in male or female. Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent pest paid on receipt of price, 50 cents a box, or six boxes for $3.50-r(they are never sold in bulk or by the 100) by addressing Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Schenee- tftdy, N. Y. ANIMALS iia» the fettttiftr Wftj* ot All S«#« of f*tt C«h Ho tttMs^i to A*e#hrit4 The easiest way td toach a trick is to mako a trick out of some ttttte peculiarity of the animal, In this way you get ahead of him, so to speak. Careful watching of his habits will f Akihar a Lofjfr — In order to 6tf«ct A cur* you writ bftte to undergo a snfrgte&l otteHrtioa. Patient— is it really dftngefous? you hints of what can bo done in 1 the way of equipping him with trick's "that will often seem surprising to strangers. It is also a Way of giving an otherwise very stupid pet some tricks that could novei- be taught in the usual way. A lazy dog, who liked above all things to have his back scratched, turned his head toward it. Mis hose was rather sharp, and it made him look as if ha was pointing to the spot he wished scratched; His master noticed this, and each time the dog did it he Would say quickly, "Show mo the place," Soon the dog Would do it the instant he hearr! the wosds, being rewarded with a scrape or two along the back. He got so that he would point to different places, his nose many times touching his buck instead of merely pointing. A cat that boxes was originally nothing but a playful kitten whoso habit of striking with her paws at an outstretched hand was made into this very clever trick. The hands were moved in the motion of boxing, and soon the cat would stand up, making passes with cither paw in exactly the same way. In teaching those things always uso tho same word of command or motion. An animal soon learns, Goldfish that are accustomed to como to Patieht— But I have understood In fen operation of that character only one recovers in every 10,000. Doctor^-I know, but 9,999 have already died. Yon are the 10.000th one. You will Surely recot er, tho surface of tho water for food whenever a hand is held over the globe will^appear to rko when whistled to, if a' whistle is given each time tho hand is there. Goldfish used to taking food suspended close to tho water by a string can bo taught to "ring a bell for food,"and a most astonishing trick it will seem until visitors loarnliow it was taught. A string that will just touch tho water when food is attached, is fastened to an arrangement that rings a small bell at the top of the globe whenever tho string is nibbled at. A canary's little ways may be con- bldrt't Like Dogs. Visitor— Does your dog know ftay tricks? Boy Lots of 'em. "I should like to see some of them. Can you make him lie down and pretend to be deftd?"

This bird will always peck and pull at a string left within reach. A little bell can bo fastened just outside the door, a loop of string hanging inside. Once in a while let tho bird out when it rings the bell, saying, "Want to come on 1 °" By opening tho door as soon as vlie cord is pulled, when showing tho trick it will appear as if tho bird rang the bell to get out. The habit of the sociable canary who chirps whenever anyone enters the room after a meal may be made into a regular dialogue. Say "Hello" always on going in. .The bird's chirp will answer. "What do you want" is the next question, a bit of food or green stuff being- given after tho bird replies. "What do you say for it?" will cause more chirps, which mean "Thank you." It is said that a bird that imitates sounds readily can IUe taught to whistle a tune if tang before a looking glass and u music "box with one tune be kept going- :a great deal of the time. The canary 'thinks the song comes from the Mrd in tho glass and tries it too. A dog or a cat ttnat stands easily on its hind feet cam Ibe nmde to dance, if it has tho IhaM* <of standing up for food. Hold the food 'directly over the head, and raotro ft-gently about, being careful not -to cause ithe animal to lose its balance by Md'ing it too far to one side. Tho .'animal 'will want to keep its eyes on the food, and to do so will have to stop about, [forward, back and sideways. As at 'gets more used to doing this the motion, which will look like dancing, can foe made faster by moving the hand more quickly. Any kitten wffi.pttay with *a string that hangs down. Have a rope with a knot in the end hanging- almost to the floor of the kitchen porch. The rope is attached to <ene end of a balanced stick, a bell being tied to the other end. The kitten will probably play with the knot when she comes to the door. If she tries to come in without ringing the bell open the door, and shake the rope until she catches hold of it, and thus rings the bell. Do not let her in until she has done this. It will be very, easy to teach this to a oat that has been drained to catch at anything hanging down in front of it. One of the funniest tricks ever taught unconsciously to a dog was done by taking- advantage of his sneezing-, one day when tobacco was puffed into his face, as his master was smoking. This was done several times, until finally the dog would sneeze whenever the breath • was blown at him, whether with or without smoke, or whether he was near his master or not. The gentleman would say; "Dash, do you feel a draught?" Dash, who always answered questions by a bark, would reply. ««Aren't you afraid of catching cold? There is a.draught," said his master, blowing his breath out. At this Dash would sneeue, which never failed to make people laugh. Ullndoa b Because Captain Bray, pf thesohoon* er Nettie kangdon, from Jamaica for Philadelphia, slept on deok in the tropical moonlight, he totally lost his sight and alniost wrecked his vessel, or such, at least, is the report of 'his cftse. In the tropics, the statement runs, gych an occurrence is not rajre, but it is seldom heard of so far ndvth as the latitude of Jamaica. In Denje- rarft, the same authority declares, many such oases occur, especially when the moon is in its strongest phase.
