There is comfort m Ike knowledge, that so many forms of tjekncss are not clue to any actual dis- MaW, hut simply to a constipatedcond'- Ifanof the system, which the plcasatu femily laxative, Synipof Figs, promptly removes. That is why it is the only TCmedy with millions of families, and is •wrywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial •fleets are due to the fact, that itis the «M remedy which promotes internal •temnlincss without debilitating the «vnns on which it acts.

NOVEL INSURANCE. A Blufftou undertaker lias an insurance scheme, says the Blnfftou News which ho is thinking seriously of working in that city. Each oC Ills patrons is guaranteed a $200 funeral •with black plumes on the hearse, shroud aud pall bearers at his death. In turn he pays twenty-five cents a week until he has paid in $200, then quits paying. If ho dies at any time, even if he'has only made one payment, he gets the funeral any way. The man who has the scheme sets the interest on the money and figures that by selling his policies to good healthy subjects not over 20 years of age he can make a pood thing. YOUR BOY WON'T LITE A MONTH So Mr. Oilman Brown, of 34 Mill St., South Gardner, Mass., was told by the doctors. His son had lung trouble, following typhoid malaria and he spent three hundred and seventy-five dollin-s with doctors, who finally, gave him up, saying: "Your boy wont live a month," He tried Dr. King's New Discovery and a few bottles restored him to health and enabled him to go to work a perfectly well man. He says he owes his present good health to the use of Dr. King's New Discovery, and knows it to be the best in the world for lung trouble. Trial bottles free at B. F.. Kecsling's drug store. ADVERTTSEMEiNTS. The Flora Enterprise makes a center shot in the following: "There is nothing on earth so mysteriously .funny as some men's idea of a newspaper advertisement. The prime, first, last and all-the-time object of an advertisement is to draw custom. It is not, was not, and never will be designed for any human purpose. So the mer chant waits' until the bupy season comes and the store is so full of customers he can't get his hat off, and then he rushes to the newspapers and puts in his advertisement. When the dull season comes along nnd there is •no trade, lie takes out his advertisement. That is, some of them do;' occasionally a level-headed merchant puts -in a bigger one and scoops all the business, and the other fellows loat around and do not seem to understand It."

One of the Nebraska followers of Mr. Bryan borrowed $2,000 upon his from a few mouths ago. He gave the necessary mortgage, and also agreed to carry tire insurance to the full amount'of the loan. This condition his fulled to observe, and the company from which he hml borrowed the money called his attention fo The matter in number of communications. The farmer soon been me wearied by such importunity, and addressed the following remarkable'note to his creditors: "Dear Sirs—Yours In reference to Insurance on loan No. 4,028 at hand. I wish you would not bother me any more about tills.mater. I expect to pay this loan in free silver, aud expect to buy silver enough to pay it for .<il2. r >. In gold tiuit would bo 10 to 1. 1 aiii sure the security Is good for that at its preset price." The correspondence on this subject, Including the reply of the mortgage company, as pnb- lis'hed iu the Chicago Tribune, jnakus highly Interesting reading. It Is hardly necessary to say that the reply included a notllicatlon of foreclosure and that the political outlook now appears loss rosy to the farmer than before.— Harper's Weekly. MOTHERS find help Hood's Sarsaparilla, which gives them pure blood, a good appetite aud new and needed STRENGTH. SUFFERING FOE A LIFE TIME. Persons afflicted with rheumatism often suffer for a life time, their torture? being almost without remission. Tlio joints nncl muscles of such unfortunates are In most cases shockingly contorted anil drawn out of shape. To afford them oven temporary relief, the ordinary remedies often prove utterly useless. Hostettor's Stomach Bitters, on the other hand, is avouched by persons who have used it, to be a genuine source of relief. It keeps the blood cool by promoting a regular habit of body, 'and removes from it impurities which, iu the opinion of all rational pathologists, originate this agonising complaint, and its kindred malady, the gout. Besides this the Bitters remedy disorders oC the stomach, liver and nerves, prevent and eradicate intermittent fevers, .promote appetite and sleep, and are highly recommended by physicians, as a desirable medicinal stimulant and tonic. PIANO SWINDLE, Two strangers claiming to represent a Chicago piano company, have been operating extensively In the northern Indiana counties, where their peculations are said to aggregate thousands of dollars. Papers'in the form of negotiable notes have turned up in War saw -county, where the plan of operation was to place a piano in a farmer's house with the understanding that he was to advertise the merits of the instrument for a stated sum. Receipts were signed for the pianos and now this paper turns up In the form of notes of ?4SO each. Reports from other counties say the same swindle was practiced and no' intelligent estimate of its extent can be made. FREE PILLS, Send your address to H. E.

Wabash Tribune: This morning a Tribune reporter clipped from a metropolitan newspaper an alleged fac simile copy of Li Huug. Chang's autograph and submitted it for the inspection of one of Wabash's lending laundrymen, with the request that the latter criti- cise it from the standpoint of Chinese chirography. "One Lung" studied It very closely for a moment or two, then he compared It with the stubs lir-iils "case-keeper," and after giving his pig- tall two or three nervous jerks he turned on the reporter, an angry flash lighting up his almond shaped eyes, and said in tones more forcible than soothing: "Damee lie; me no writco him; no washee here; dnmee tlef try beateo John!" That fool Chinaman had misunderstood the reporter's mission and really believed on attempt was being-made to ring in on him a forged receipt for soiled -linen left in his washee washee laundry. All of which tends to Incline the reporter to tlie opinion that Li Hang Chang isn't so very handy in the manipulation of a whitewash brush after nil. MENTAL EFFECTS. A Healing Test For the Mind." There lire a number of commcndabla things taught by so-called mind heal-, ers. For Instance. "Mind is the real buing, the real man, which moves the arms, logs, eyes, etc., as machines which do its will." Body is made up entirely 'of what comes from the ground and air. A peculiar compound of earth and 'water, delicately and most deftly arranged to bo sure,' but simple earth ijfid water, nevertheless, without any 1'orcc, Intelligence or motion In it, except as it is acted upon by the living mind. There seems' to be two minds to each body, or two selves, one which runs the so-called automatic members, stomach, heart, bowels, etc., etc.. and the other which conducts the movements of the outer members arms, etc. It is a curious psychological fact that when one is slightly ailing, a new line of thought will quickly affect the body favorably and particularly If that men- nil trend run somewhat as follows: "I am not body." "My real self is unseen and is Mind or Spirit which is the same as Life. Body being deiul material cannot complain to me except ns I sensitize it and permit the complaints." 1C a person can bring himself to thoroughly believe this without a shadow of doubt, a most curious nnd healing effect Is quickly felt in the body. Many people have not a well enough trained mind to command just what it shall or shall not do, but where the mind, is well in hand, so to speak, the result of such mental exercise Is marked and cannot bo forgotten. We write, the above knowing that it will reach the eye of some searcher after some of the now laws which are lately coming to be known of man, and t.o say that while ou the subject oC healthful living, it should not be forgotten that good nourishing food and drink tire necessary and the unnatural habits arc bettor left off tnan clung to. If the reader has trouble with coffee and has never used the food-drink, Postum Cereal, it will well repay the trial. 'There is but one genuine original Postum Cereal coffee, with a multitude of imitations offered as "just as good." Merchants supplied by ,T. T. Elliott & Son.

New York World: As Mr. Harrison looked out over the audience, stretching away and upward until it'seemed to overhang near the lofty colling, he must have felt that no speaker could possibly bo more honored than by the attention.and applause of such iiu assembly. They were typical of the mass of the American people-neither rieh'nor poor, neither in patches nor in fine linen, but well-to-do .people, with plenty to eat, comfortable clothing and comfortable homes, aud with honest, commou-seuse brains in their heads. The leaders of the Republican party of the State were not there. The rich men of New York were absent. On the platform, as in the stalls and boxes, there were plain people, neither .very obscure nor very conspicuous. And the attention (hey gave left nothing to be desired. Not a single point escaped them. Dr. Depew's mellow and soothing tones aud Mr. Harrison's clear, high rather thin tenor reached the furthermost ears, and none went away until they had done. In the boxes were many of the women politicians of New York-thai- large aud increasing body of political workers of indefinite and indubitable; influence. And there were women in the •ther parts of the house, none of them dressed with any great show of fashion. In fact, 'the only thoroughly fiuihioiiiiblc-lookiug person in (he house was Mr. Harrison. There were two or three men in the boxes with oven ing dress, but it w.as a sort of careless summer Ifalf-way business. The General wns the real thing. Dr. Depew came very nenr it. He had on a very long frock coat, with voluminous tails, and a great, air that suggested Picadllly, allhough.oi' course it would bo scandalous to suspect so good a protectionist of a personal slight to home industries. It is a thankless business to stand, between an audience and the man it particularly wishes to hear—that is, it would be thankless for any except Dr. Depew, to whom a man far back shouted, with the earnest approval, of even-body: "We like you, Chauncey!" Mr. Harrison has one point In common with Queen Victoria, as that lady is described by those who have seen her. Like her. he is very short, and entirely too many inches round for the number of inches up and down, and, like her, he has a dignity that more than overcomes these serious defects. He has little personal magnet- Ism in private life, as many a sorrowful politician has remarked. But ou the platform he is so clean and honest looking, so full of a sort of egotism, that inspires belief instead of ridicule, that few speakers con interest and hold an audience as. well as he. He has an air of, saying convincingly, "Now listen to me aud you will not regret it," and what he says soon con : vinces that ho was not mistaken In his estimate of himself nnd his grasp ou the subject. His voice is not especially agreeable. It is far from strong, and sounds rather strained at times. He walked up and down the platform, now reading a while from his notes, and now talking as if extemporaneously. He looked so calm and so cool, nnd what lie said was so sensible, that when he closed a paragraph with one of those clear, unpretentious, yet most significant epigrams for which he is famous, the audience responded as they did not to even Dr. Depew's wit. Two or throe times he betrayed a great deal of feeling, but in a strictly Harrisonlan way, feeling that seemed to result from a mental process and not from an emotion of the heart. This was especially noticeable in what he said about the attack upon the Supreme Court and upon "a President for doing what his oath compels." Again his face' flushed and his extended hands trembled when, after describing the depreciated dollar the free silverites wished made Into a legal tender, he exclaimed: "This policy coerces integrity!" In the earlier part of his speech his. poses were careful and apparently- studied. But, as he, warmed up, he put his hands now on his hips and now into: the flrmholes of his evening waistcoat. CURIOUS INVENTIONS. The National Recorder gives a description of some very wonderful inventions. One of them, a shoe polisher, is perhaps the most unique dcvlco ever Invented. It cleans, blackens, ami polishes the shoes. It was invented by a Washington gentleman, who had experimented for years with blacking machines, but not until recently has bo succeeded in making one that is per-, feet In its arrangement. The foot is shoved under a bronze covering, a nickel is put In the slot., and the shoe comes out iu fine condition. An indicator on lop of the machine Informs the customer when it Is time to put the foot on top of the other brush, which polishes the sides of the shoe. At the time indicated a iiiechanica! arrangement shifts the wheels inside of the cabinet so that the brush for the top of the shoe stops and turns the brush for the sides. Another recent invention mentioned is a letter stamper. No one likes to use the lips or tongue to moisten stamps, it is both disagreeable and injurious. With this automatic letter- stamping machine the letters are inserted at a.little table at one end. In the device for feeding stamps a single stamp is separted • from a strip of stumps and projected over the letter surface, to which it is to be applied. A moistening roll in connection with the apparatus performs the service which generally devolves upon the lips and tongue. The letter is inserted, a button pressed, and the work is done. The sailing morry-go-ronnd Is a new invention iu which the children will be interested. One has recently been built on the Mediterranean const, which is graceful and attractive. The principle is simple, a sti-ong beam pivoted centrally, and fitted at each end with a tiny sloop riggiug. Seat? to carry the rider are slung under eaeb arm. The device is fitted with automatic breaks, so that it may revolve slowly when grandma or baby " rides, or it may be so loaded with sails that It will revolve rapidly. Young people love to handle the "ropes", and with practice are soon abl*- TO stop the merry-go-round by a dexterous handling of the ropes. But *•* Is not ncc-. essary, as the end of the boom may be made fast so as to have little play, and the sails will take the riglit position to the wind with every half revolution. A GRAND PICNIC. The young settlers of Wabash, Grant Howard, Cass, Fulton and Miami counties will give a grand picnic on the 12th of September in Brownell's grove in the western part of the city. Music wlll-.be furnished throughout the-day by bands from the 'various counties. There will be prominent speakers present and amusements of all kinds will be placed In the hands of the people to enjoy them the best possible way. There was .a meeting of the young settlers in Sullivan's hall lost night and quite a number were present. An executive committee consisting of one or more persons from each township In the county was selected 'with John Vollpert as secretary. .Special rates on all railroads will be secured for parties coming to the picnic.—Peru Journal. '. Many a day's work to lost by Blck headache caused by indigestion and itomach .troubles. DeWitt's Little Early Elsers are the most effectual pill- for. overcoming such dlfflculttes.—Jno. M. Johnston. ••'•.-'. . ".' .-•..' NICARAGUA SNAKES. "Talking of snakes," said a man who had recently arrived from the wUds.of Nicaragua, "reminds me of an incident I witnessed while I was in' the interior of the little republic. It was in the section where the hills approach the rivers. I happened to be paddling down the stream nnd halted to escape the sun just under a cliff which was some thirty feet above the low ground, forming an abrupt declivity. "While I was leaning against 1 he trunk of a large trumpet tree near the bank of the river I happened to glance up at the edge of the cliff and noticed a snake hanging head downward and swinging In the open space. While I was wondering J was' more surprised at seeing another reptile climb down the body of the first and coll his tail about its neck. Then there came another and another, all doing the same thing until there was a rop« of snakes reaching within about three feet of the ground, all pursuing the. same tactics as the second. Then I realized that the things were trying to reach bottom in' this original manner. They did not reach low enough, and directly the bottom ones crawled to the top and shortly reappeared, each with a small Tilt of twig in his mouth. 'When the'first one with the twig reached the end of the rope the hanging one grasped the wood In his mouth and the other hung tail down. Then a second dropped do\yn the rope, colled his tall about the tail of the other, and hung head down with the stick" in" his inouth, and a third, climbing the living colls, In his turn grasped the other piece of twig, and was suspended* fail down like the first. By the aid of the pieces of twig they lengthened the coil until the bottom snake touched the ground—" "Say" queried one of the interested listeners, "what became of ihe snakes at the top; did they drop?" ' "That was just the thing. When the bottom snake was about to let go. he seemed to realize that the ones at the top would be no nearer terra flrma than before, changed his mind, and crawled iip slowly, apparently informed the others, and the links shortened as the snakes crawled up, and the 1 last I saw of the Jot they were hunting -for a piece of twist vine to make a 'rope ladder."—New Orleans Times- Democrat, SENT IT TO HIS MOTHER IN GERMANY. Mr. Jacob Esbensen, who is in the employ of the Chicago Lumber Co., at Des Moines, Iowa, says: "I have just sent some medicine back to my rnothcji In the old' country, that I know from personal use to be the best medicine In jthe .world for rheumatism, having used ; It' In my 'family .for several years.
