Gladness Comes W ith a better understanding of tho transient nature of the many phys- "fe»l ills, which vanish before proper e£- torto—irentle efforts—pleasant efforts- jtohtly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge, that so many forms of •lekness are not due to any actual ciis- •Me but simply to a constipated conation of the system, which the pleiisatc family laxative, Syrup of Figs, promptly removes. That is why it is the only iSmedy with roillionsof families, and is •rerywherc esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its benchcial •Sects are due to tho fact, that it is the one remedy which promotes internal «to»nlincss without dcbihtat'.Tig the organs on which it nets. It is therefore •ITimportKint, in order to get its bene- Idal effects, to note when you pur- Awe that you have the genuine arti- •to, which is manufactured by the Cali- Joarnia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by •U reputable druggists. Jf In tho enjoyment of good health, Kid the system is regular, laxatives or •(her remedies are then not needed.

The bandit- leper of the Hawaiian Islands is reported dead. Koolau was his name, and his record was one sheriff and iour soldiers killed. Three years ago the Hawaiian government undertook to remove the governmental leper settlement, a band of lepers which had settled iu the little vuiloy of Kolalau.on the island of Kauni. All of them consented to g-o except Koolau, who re- =istecL Accordingly the sheriff went to remove him forcibly. But he was well armed and killed the sheriff. This resistance to authority caused tho government to send two companies of soldiers to arrest him. Koolna retreated into the mountain fastnesses, •which r.re almost, inaccessible. The troops tracked him, however, but the trails were so narrow they could only come upon him in Indian file, and, being a good sliot nnd.a desperate man, he killed the' soldiers as fast ns they came in view. After four had been killed the remainder withdrew, and Koolau was permitted to retaiu his residence in the little valley. The news comes now that he is deud, and that his wife, who had remained faithfully with him, buried him in the valley which had been his stronghold. CAVE OF GOLDEN STALACTITES. Ground Gives Way and a Vast Cavern I* Disclosed. i There has been great excitement at Mansfield, Mo., over the reported discovery of gold and the finding.simul- taneously of the largest cave in the world near the town of Hudson, on tic St.' Louis, Mansfield & Ava Southern railroad. For two or three years the earth has been sinking to such nil extent as to cause no little uneasiness, and the Other day a very noticeable depression in the earth was discovered some miles north of Hortville. Upon investigation an opening- to what is said to^bc the lare^-st cave in tne Vv ' orid was found. Cavern after cavern, lined •with pure onyx and traversed by subterranean irtrcams -have been explored '•without finding the end. Portions of fitalactitcs found in one of the caverns •were found to contain gold. The largest cave heretofore discovered in south Missouri was found in Stone county, two years ago, but It is insignificant compared with the Hudson discovery, if half of what has been told of it is true. ^^_ ' BTJCKLEN'S ARNICA SALVE.

The young man shook his he;id. A newcom-er entered the car, and, being an altogether officious person, pointed to the vacant seats. The young man still walked. "Hello, Henry!" exclaimed a dapper young fellow, on. acquaintance of the peripatetic, who -just then bounced iuto the car. "Why don't you sitdown ? What in the world makes you walk up and down like that?" "Conscientious scruples," said the young-pedestrian.

King Guy of Jerusalem. The decoration is given to those who assist in any way the Armenian nation, or to those who have distinguished themselves in science, letters or the arts. The jewel of the order consists of the jross of JerusaJem in blue enamel. Be- bween the four points 1 of the cress are four smaller crosses in silver, while in the center are the arms of the royal house of Lusiguan. The jewel is surmounted by a silver ;rown, and ft worn upon the left breast, suspended from a blue ribbon with white borders. Prince Guy de Lusignan, the giver of the decoration, is also the hereditary prince of Jerusalem, Cyprus and Armenia, being descended from the last kings of these countries. One of his ancestors, also named Guy, became king of Jerusalem nnd Armenia ir 1186 by his marriage with Sibylla, the daughter of the former king. This Sibyila .was the. one who founded the order of Melusine. In 1187 King Guy was defeated in the battle of Ti- berias, nnd several years later retired to the island of Cyprus, where he reigned for two years. His descendants ruled tho island for nearly 300 years, when it was sold to .the TJepi: lie of Venice by Catherine . Carnoro. From that time on the Lusignans have been scattered throughout the east. Prince Guy, the present head of the royal house of Lusig-nan, was born IE Constantinople in 1834, and received his education in Venice and Paris. The prince was for some years .at the head of the Armenian schools in Paris, but he resigned to devote more of his time to the study of oriental languages, about which he has given much valuable information to the scientific world. His wife was Princess Mariede Goupil, who died five years ago. Hi* brother, the late Prince Khorene, was the head of the Armenian church, and was one of the representatives of the Berlin conference of 1878. REX AND HIS TEETH. Frahably tho Only Vog thmt.
