A straietfoj-ward, open-hearted man may be safely left to manage his own concerns. From the Union. Port Jartis, N. 1T» But a short time ago in a distant part- ot the country, we heard of a cure by the Use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, which tseemed almost marvelous, and more recently another substantial evidence of their value reached our ears. Being of an inquiring turn of mind, and Wishing to know just how much there Was in the Story, a reporter was sent to interview the pel-son said to be thus benefited. If the narrative as it had reached our ears was true, it Was only simple justice to let it be known—if it proved un^ true, it Would be Well to know It, The person alluded to above as having been thus greatly benefited by the Use of Pink Pills, is Mrs. Jane Hotalen, of Hainesville, N. J., a pleasant hamlet in Sussex County, about fifteen miles from this office. The reporte had no difficulty in finding Mrs. Hotnlen. She is a pleasant faced old lady, looking to be sixty-five, but is in reality seventy-two years of age. After a few preliminary remarks in explanation of the call she Was asked if she had any objection to giving us the details of the case and how she caiue to try this now famous remedy, "Not at all," she said. "I£ my experience tan be of any good to others, 1 am sure they are welcome to it—it can do me no harm." '•When were you taken sick and what was the nature of the malady?" "It was about two years ago. The trouble was rheumatic in character— sciatica, they called it—and it was very painful indeed. The difficulty began in uiy hip and extended the whole length of the linib, crippling me completely. 1 suffered intensely from it, aiid the ordinary treat-, ment gave me not the slightest alleviation. I was under treatment about a month as stated, but grew worse instead of better, and was fast becoming discouraged." "What brought Pink Pills to your notice?" "My son called my attention to an article in a paper, in which it was stated that a Mr. Struble, of Branchville, a village in this county, hud been greatly benefited bj- their use, and suggested that it would bp a good plan to try them. But I was skeptical in regard to their value—in fact, I had no confidence iu their efficacy, and rather laughed at the suggestion. But the trouble increased and I Was badly crippled. A few days later my son was about to visit a neighboring town and suggested again that it might bo well to try this much-talked-of remedy, and I then coupented. He bought me a box of them, and I began taking them at once. At the end of a week I noted a marked improvement, and by the time J had taken the first box 1 was able to walk without a cone. I continued their use, taking several boxes, and am, as you see, iu a very comfortable state of health." '•Have you had any return of the trouble?" "Not as yet. though at my time of life, seventy-two, it would not bo surprising if I should have. If it comes I should atonce be"gin the use of the pills. • I suppose I inherit a tendency to troubles of this kiud—my mother died from them." "Did you ever note any ill effects from the use of Pink Pills?" "None whatever.. They never disturbed my stomach in any way or caused me any annoyance. I am able, as you see, to attend to my own work." The reporter thanked Mrs. Hctalen for her courtesy and bade her good day. ilt is not often that one can witness such a complete recovery from such a pertinacious trouble at such an advanced age, and such instances cannot fail to produce a profound impression. Headers of the Union may rely on the absolute accuracy of all the statements bore given—nothing lias been exaggerated, nothing withhold. Dr. Williams 1 - Pink Pills contain, in a condensed, form, all the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and rostoro shattered nerves. Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent postpaid on receipt of price, by addressing Dr, Williams' Med. Co., Sehenectody, N. Y. A London paper has been fkhing f&f definitions aS to what a baby is an received a long list Of definitions. That which took the prize was "A tiny feather from the wing of love dropped into the sacred lap of motherhood." Among the definitions were the following: , A troublesome compendium of great possibilities. The only precious possession that never excites envy, A bold ascerter of the rights of frea speech. A thing everybody thinks there is A great deal too much fuss about, unless it is their own, A thing we are expected to kiss and look as if we enjoyed It, The only thing needful to make a home happy. There is only one perfect specimen of a baby in existence, and every mother is the happy possessor of it. The most extensive employer of female labor. The pulp from which the leaves of life's book are made. A padlock on the chain o& love. A soft bundle of love and trouble which we cannot do without. The morning caller, noonday crawler, midnight brawler. The magic spell by which the gods transform a house into a home. A diminutive specimen of perverse humanity that could scarcely be endured if he belonged to some one else, but, being our own, is a never-failing treasury of delight. A mite of humanity that will cry no harder if a pin Is stuck into him than he will if the cat won't let him pull her tail. A crying evil you only aggravate by putting down. The latest edition of humanity of which every couple think they possess the finest copy. A native of all countries, who speaks the language of none. The sweetest thing God ever made and forgot to give wings to. That which increases the mother's toil, decreases the father's cash, and serves as an alarm clock to the neighbors. A pleasure to two, a nuisance to every other body, and a necessity to the world.

Gladness Comes W ith a better understanding of the tramsient nature oi the many physical ills, which vanish before proper efforts— gentle efforts—pleasauteirorts— rightly directed. There is comfort m the knowledge, that so many forms ai sickness are not due to any actual disease, but simply to a constipated condition of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs, promptly removes. That is why it is the only remedy with millions of families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly by all Who valtie good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the fact, that it is the one remedy which promotes internal cleanliness without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is therefore ' all important, in order to get its beneficial effects, to note when you purchase, that you have the genuine article, which is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by all reputable druggists. ,,_,., If in the enjoyment of gpod health, and the system is regular, laxatives or other remedies are then not needed.

His Success I)ue to His Having s Few 1'leked Men. Lord Cromer's success is in particular due to his seeing that the only efficient way to rule Egypt was to have an Englishman at hand to say the nnal word in every department of state, says the Spectator. He has never wanted to flood Egypt with English administrators after the manner of France in Tunis. Tunis has only a million and a half of people, but there are 3,000 French civil functionaries, besides a large number of military officers. Lord Cromer has always preferred that tlie English heads should use Egyptian hands. The native cabinet and the native bureaucracy have gone untouched, except to be improved and strengthened, but in the shadow behind every magnificent ministerial fauteuil stands the Englishman who controls and directs. This means that our work has been done by a minute staff. Except in the irrigation department, where high technical skill and the Inability to take bribes make It absolutely necessary to have Englishmen, there are no visible English officials. One advantage of a minute staff is that all your men can be picked men. And In Egypt, whether soldiers or civilians, all the controlling men are picked men- men who can be trusted not only to liold on like bulldogs, but who are also certain to win when brain power, whether in the Turk, tho Armenian, or the Copt, is matched against brain power, tact and adroitness. We do not known whether Lord Cromer ever expressed the thought in words, but if he had said, "I will have no regiment of poorly-paid second-rate Englishmen under me here, but only a few men of the ablest kind in well-paid, responsible posts," he would have exactly expressed the principle upon which he has acted. Another reason for Lord Cromer's success is to be found in the fact that he has always used young men. Egypt is the triumph of young men. Kindred Occupations. "What became of tho Jones asked the returned native. "Bill stays on tho farm," said the dent native, "and Ed went to and opened a law office." ' "Oh!

He—A widow? When did her husband die? She—Last week. He—But she is in half mourning. ghe—Yes, it 1ms come to light that ho had another wife in Chicago. PERSONAL. Marlon Crawford says that his experience in the east convinces him that the Armenians are the "sharpest, shrewdest and trickiest of all eastern Deonles." . • ANTIQUITY Ot?-IRRIGATION, The valley of the Euphrates was crossed by hundreds of miles of canals from 200 to 400 feet across carrying water to arid lands beyond. In India there are now under irrigation 25,000,000 acres; in Egypt, 6,000,000 acres', in Italy, 3,700,000 acres; in France, 400,000 acres, and in the United States, 4,000,000 acres., "For hundreds of years Spain and other southern European countries have relied on irrigation, and in the lost cities of Peru, South America and Mexico irrigation Was practiced when those countries were discovered. Plato Was told by Solon over 2,000 years ago that it existed in Egypt, and also was told the story of the lost island Atlantis, which was sunk in the ocean thousands of years previously and which was said to have had the most perfect system of Irrigation known. Mr F. E. Coserove of the C. B. & Q, K. R., Buda, 111., writes May 21st, 1896:.
