I treated him for indigestion absolutely without success, but ho appeared to bo better satisfied than' 1 was, and told me that he never expected to be cured. •Me has suffered- at times ever since he could remember, physically and mentally; eveii morally he was controlled by Irresistible impulses of good and bad, goilig( to extremes as a devout Christian and a dcbaucheri He and I became friends, and he talked to nie freely. lie seemed to have a dual existence, and none of the symptoms ns laid down in the books would appear as expected when he was ill. "It was simply impossible to render anything like a correct diagnosis of his ailments. Usually ho was in good health, but when he became otherwise there was no power in medicine. "it having no apparent effect upon him. I was baffled and knew ho was formed •differently from other men, but how I could not tell. Mentally he was as much of an enigma as physically. He would be talking perfectly rationally, when a strange 'gleam would come in his eyes, and he would beg me to lock him up. Often he said he felt as though' there was another being within him who was 'constantly 'striving for mastery of his body, and that his other self sometimes succeeded in overpowering htm. -I supposed him to be partly demented and urged him not to allow. his mind to dwell upon this subject. One day I was called to his 'bedside, and to all appearances he was dying. I felt that it 'was too late to do anything for him, and within an hour he died— at -least there was every semblance, of 'death— but a few hours later there were signs of returning animation, and the next day he was able to leave .his bed, but complained that he seemed to have a heavy weight bearing down upon him internally. H« said that mentally he felt perfectly sane for the first time in his life, and the old- impression that another self, was trying to obtain mastery of him was gone. For weeks my friend and pa tient was in better health than I had ever known him, except that he constantly grew weaker, and the load' he felt : as though he carried a became heavier. His breath, too, became offensive, and, while his flesh retained its firmness, his body seemed to be putrid. It was not long before death relieved his sufferings, tills time forever. His last request was that I should hold a. post mortem examination tbe only request of the kind I ever heard of being made. It was complied with. The words.

"After the death of Mr. Marshall I held th<r post-mortem, as directed, and to my utter astoulbhment, found two hearts, two sets of. lungs, two livers and two stomachs. One set hart been dead, for some time and was decayed, while the other would have been in sound condition except for the , death of the first one.

My, experience since I have been here liaa been somewhat novel. Having always had Chinamen In my house, I have never had to take from my servants what seemed to be an absolute independence and indifference which I find in Ihe people 1 employ here, Recently my wife had hart to • almost daily listen to the. ultimatum from one or another of the- servants we 'have. It is either 'I'm not at all satisfied with you m'a'am, so I'm going to leave,' or, ' I find the work too hard, so I bo going, 1 without warning or giving you an opportunity to get a person to fill thelv places. How different with Chinamen, they always supply some one for their place before they leave, For instance-, when • a- -Chinamen be" comes dissatisfied lie never tells you of it, But some clay you will go into the .kUcJiun to flurt your Chinaman cook having another Chinaman with him.

One day 1 read in niy paper "Don't Tobacco Spit and Smoke Your Life Away," just what I was doing, it came to me like the warning of the man who waves the red flag of danger at the railroad crossing, and said that No-To-Bac Was an absolutely guaranteed relief front tobacco slavery. 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 mentallyi 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 o.f my friends Who have been also cured. ,. "We have a baby boy now. My wife and I feel that all this happiness started from the time when I first used No- To-Bac, and in evidence of our appreciation and in order that the memory of the happiness may be perpetuated in a living form, we want to name our baby boy after the inan who wrote the line "Don't Tobacco Spit and Smoke Tour Life Away." . '."'•• "No-To-Bac is popular here and all our druggists sell it. Hardly a day passes but somebody asks me about No-To- Bac, so 1 don't want you to hesitate to use these lines in _ any way that you think will make known to suffering humanity the happiness that there is in store for the many men with plcotln- ized brains and weakened resolutions. If they will only make up their mind to save the waste of vital power—to say nothing of the money—now going up in smoke and out in tobacco spit." BRIGANDS. rhey Deioond at Might and Loot » Sardinian Village. The story of .the recent attack of brigands upon the little town of Tortoli, in Sardinia, reads like a pag-e 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 they were afraid of being identified; Their first proceeding- was to station pickets at the end of every street leading into the open country; then the main body entered the town, shouting and yelling and firing their rifles, in order to intimidate the 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 .courageous and well- armed citizens, opposed the brigands' advance. The fight which ensued lasted several hours, and dusk had set in.before the defenders of .the town were finally routed, leaving the brigadier dead on the ground and the two gendarmes and several citizens grievously wounded. The brigands now spread all over the town, helping themselves to : everything of value exposed in the 'shops, and breaking into and looting pi'ivate houses. The inhabitants were terrorized, and nobody ventured into the streets. The. strongest detachment of robbers made for the house of Sig. Depon, formerly syndic of Tortoli, and well- 'known to be possessed of ample means. The servants had been .warned of the projected attack and. had bolted and barred the house. The brigands, however, soon forced an entrance, and after a short fight, in which the syndic's coachman was killed, the defenders fled. The rob- •bjers th.en went through tbe house and secured, among other spoils, 27,000 lire in gold, 20,000 lire in paper currency, and jewelry worth 6,000 lire. With this and other booty they marched of to their retreat in the hills, Tbe Greatest AVWst* Player. Deschapelles, the greatest whist player the world has ever seen, had but one hand and was an advanced republican. His manual % dexterjty was remarkable, and it was very interesting 1 to watch him with his one hand— r and that his left— collect the cards, sort then), play thejn f and gather them in tricks. Late in life, when he hftd developed into ardent vepubli* canism, he was supposed to have beep mixed up in .some of the attempts at revolution which broHe out jn the earlier days of the reign of kouja Phillippe, His papers were se}zec|, and it was proved that he had drawn u.p a list; of persons to be disposed Pf.

When the paper cafn6 out hdxt day the figures WePe misplaced ( the Mepubtican Vote appeared itt the Democratic column and vice Versa, eo that the Comments did hot at all fit the case stated. Mr. .Greeley came down th a towering rage and in a whirl* wind of profanity demanded of the subordinate in charge Whether there was a proof reader on the paper and whether anybody in the office had a grain of sense. "Why, yes, Mr. Greeloy; you know old man So-and-So is the proof reader, and has been for years. But what is the mutter?" "Matter! Blankoty, blank, blank! Matter! Why, some blankoty, blank, blank has gotte to work and changed tho figures in that Westchestor article so as to make the blankest nonsense out of it." "I don't think anybody would oven venture to change your figures, Mr. Groeley. Don't you think you had bettor look at the copy before pitcihng into the proof reader? You know he is very careful." • , "I'll do nothing of tho kind," said. the old man as ho shuffled up stairs "I'll kick him out of tho composing- room. I won't be made a fool of in this way." Upstairs there was a scene like that below, with the variation that Greeley told the proof reader that he ought to be kicked from one end of the_ composing-room to the other. With the proverbial placidity of proof readers and their provoking readiness for such emergencies, the man assailed quickly went to the .hook and taking therefrom Greeley's'own copy held it under his eyes with the single remark: "Read that, sir." " Greeley did read. There was silence for a moment and then his face assumed a look of mingled contempt and disgust. Then he turned around with his back to the proof reader, lifted his coat tails and said, loud enough to be heard all over the room : "Here, Sam, kick me, and kick me till I holler." .'"'•.' Oldest Church in Boston. The First '..parish in Dorchester, Mass. , over which Rev. Eugene Shippen .was recently installed as pastor, is the oldest church or religious society in Boston. It is Unitarian, although in one usually well-founded religious weekly it is set down as Congroga tional. It is more than 200 years old and has had only eleven pastors in its history. The invariable ."custom, has been to install a young man and not td'call a minister from, another church. Mr. Shippen is the son of Rev. Rush R.Shippen, pastor of. the Unitarian church in Washington. He is a graduate of Harvard and for the last year has been studying at Oxford. Rev. R. R. Shippen preached the sermon at the installation of his son. Silk la 'Kansas. The state of Kansas can boast of the only silk filature in the United States. It is a state silk station at Peabody, where ten reels are operated. The business of the station is to supply silk-worms free to all Kansas applicants. The cocoons that are raised from these eggs are purchased at the rate of $1 per pound and reeled in the filature. Not very many persons obtain eggs from the station and raise cocoons, but those who do make from $40 to $100 each spring for the six weeks' work required. The raw silk from the Kansas grown cocoons is the best in the world, according to one of the leading importers in this country. A Young Philosopher. He is only 6, <and he has been quoted in print before, His humor is natural and unconscious, and in addition he* has a faculty of reasoning by analogy that would be valuable to many an adult head. His little sister was visiting a neighbor girl, and his mamma requested him to go-and escort her hom'e. "Mamma," he replied, "when we were in the oounti'y last summer Mrs. Myers asked Mr. Myers to go and got the cows. Mr. Myers said, 'You go and get them yourself,'" and the little philosopher considered tbe subject beyond further debate. ' A Thriving 1'tQg Jfurqi.
