PJIOF. Ai/VlS P. BAItNABY. A reporter recently called at this famous «»nt nf learning and was shown into tho ™m of the President, Prof. Alvin P. Bar- ,oiiv When last seen by the reporter H'Banmby was in delicate health. , To- dav he wa , av in the best of health. In response to an inquiry the professor said : "Oh yes, I am much better than for some time. I am now in perfect health; but my recovery -was brought about in "^ffiSSt it^s4id the reporter. '"'Well to begin at the beginning," said tbe professor, "I studied too hard when at rehool, endeavoring to educate myself for the professions. After completing the rommon course I came here, and graduated from the theological course. I entered bo ministry, and accepted the charge of a Coluintms. ind. Brethren Church at a small place . .,—j County, Mich. Being of an am- pmous nature, 1 applied myself diligently 0 My work and studies, in time 1 noticed mat my health was failing. Mv trouble 1.1 -:-~& e ?ttoii, and this with other troubles brought on nervousness. "My physician prescribed for ino for some some time, nnd advised mo to take a cuange of climate. I did as he requested and -was soine improved. 80011 after, I came here as professor in physics and chemistry, and later was financial agent of this college. The change agreed with me. and for a while my health was better, but my duties were heavy, and again I found my trouble returning. This Mine it was more severe and in the winter I became completely prostrated. I tried various medicines and different physicians. Finally, I was able to return to my duties. Last spring I was elected president of the college. Again I had considerable work, and the trouble,whioh had notbeeti entirely cured, began to affect me. and last fall 1 collapsed. I hod different doctors, but none did mo nny good. Professor Bowman, who is professor of natural science, told me of his experience with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People and urged me to give them a trial, because they had benefited him in a similar case, and 1 concluded to try them, "The first box helped me, and the second gave great relief, such as I had never experienced from the treatment of any physician. After using six boxes of the medl' cine I was entirely cured. To-day I am perfectly well. 1 feel better and stronger than for years. I certainly recommend this medicine." To allay all doubt Prof. Barnaby cheerfully made an affidavit before LfMAN J, SctiDnEK, Notary Public Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People are sold by all dealers, or will bo sent postpaid on receipt of price, 60 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50 (they are never sold in bulk, or by tho 100), by addressing Dr. Williams 1 Medicine Co., Schenectadv.

Spurious silver dollars are being extensively circulated In Maine and New Hampshire. Houlton's (Me.) town meeting took Just ten minutes to elect a moderator, (.awn clerk and selectmen. The Baltimore Methodist Conference has refused to ordain a young man who believes in healing by faith. It is said in New England that Bath. (Me.) has more smokers than any other town of similar size in that country. There are more wrecks in the Baltic Sea than in any other place in the world. The average is one wreck a day throughout the year. Starke, Fia., said to he the largest strawberry shipping place in the state, sent out 100 bushels on St. Patrick's Day, and that was an off day. One of tho latest canopy tops for bicycles is made so that it can lie folded up and strapped to the upper side of tho bottom bar of the bicycle frame when not in use. A handsome device for fishermen consists of a case or hook with a thick piece of cork at each end and in the middle, in which slits are cut to hold the lines and hooks. To prevent a bicycle skirt from blowing up in the wind or getting caught in the wheel a simple device recently patented consists of a rubber cord, to •vhich two safety pins are attached. RAM'S HORNS. He is littlest, who belittles others. Work is more than mere activity. No man drinks to please his wife. Imaginary eminence is actual humiliation. Intelligence Is not gained by a mero act of will. Nothing will upbraid you like unused faculties. Better a servant from love than a ruler from lust. Happiness is lost by being intemperate in its pursuit. Intelligence is largely in knowing what we do not know.- Better a little understanding than much useless knowledge. Reflection is a key that unlocks the treasures of the memory. Selfishness is often so refined that it is deeply wounded at the least remonstrance. No matter in what part of the world he lives the man who loves Christ, hates sin. Act without thought, and you are a fool; think without act, and you are a visionary. All Krtsy Test. Prospective Purchaser—You say he is a savage watchdog? Owner—Yes, indeed. '•But how am I to know?" "Try him. Just go outside with me and climb in at that winder." EST Virginia has established a precedent that might well be followed with advantage by all the other states, says "Bearings." This is nothing more or less thnn a state act regulating the USD of the bicycle throughout the entire state and taking away from the Incorporated towns nnd cities the privileges of making their own ordinances. This new law, which goes Into effect June 1, prohibits the riding of a bicycle upon any sidewalk, limits the speed within any incorporated ctty to 12 miles an hour, and requires that every machine ridden In a city shall at all times be equipped with an alarm bell, and that those In use outside of the cities after sunset shall also be provided with them. The law also makes it a misdemeanor to throw into or upon any highway of the state any articles injurious to pneumatic tires, such as glass, tacks, scrap Iron, etc. It provides tljat the mayor or council of any city or town may grant permits to ride at any rate of speed In excess of the maximum limit set by the law, and may attach reasonable conditions to such permits, but the making of other rules or ordinances to conflict with tho new law are prohibited. The merits and value of such a uniform law as this for the entire state will be appreciated at once by all who have suffered by divergent ordinances, of adjacent cities. As the laws stand now in most of our states each city has its own regulations, which seldom conform to those of another town. Even in Chicago the municipality has one set of ordinances which limit the speed to ten miles an hour and require the carrying of a light at night. Each park board there has a separate and individual set of rules, one limiting the speed of bicycles to eight miles an hour and requiring lamps to be lighted after dark, while another limits the speed to six miles an hour and requires lamps to be lighted at sunset. Moreover, every little town on the outskirts of the city has its own distinct rules, some of which permit riding on the sidewalks, while others are very stringent in this regard. Some make it compulsory to carry bells and others to carry lights, and so they differ, to the confusion and annoyance of the riders, who are often persecuted because they are' unfamiliar with the peculiarities of the regulation of every insignificant hamlet. The passage of one general law for an entire 'state to govern the use of the bicycle will also have the much-to-be-deslred effect of preventing tampering with the ordinances, which seems to have become the rage of late. ter at Plttsbrtrg in 1895 by killing 96 out of 100 live birds. In the Cobweb Hantllcat* held last month at Baychester, N. Y., he divided first money with C. W. Budd by killing 16 straight pigeons from the 30-yarA mark. He took part in tho Grand American Handicap this year, but was shot out in the 24th round. In tho Homestead Handicap the previous week, at Elkwood Park, he killed 24 out of 25 live birds. At tho Riverton Handicap, given by the Riverton Gun Club, he Won first money and silver cup by killing 94 out of 100 live birds from the 29- yard mark. Hfe shot a match with Thoo. Hostetter at Plttsburg on March 29, 1897, and won by killing 93 out of 100, standing on 29 yards. On March 30 Hostetter turned the tables and de* feated Upson by killing 96 out of 100, while the Cleveland man again grassed 93.
