Gladness Comes W ith a better understanding of the transient nature of the many physical Ills, which vanish before proper ef' forts—gentle efforts—pleasant efforts— lightly directed. There is comfort in Ike knowledge, that so many forms pi •lekness are not due to any actual dis- Mie, but simply to a constipated con<J>- tlon of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs, promptly removes. That is why it is the only W&edy with millionsof families, and is •rerywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial •Sects are duo to tho fact, that it is the One remedy which promotes internal •leanliness without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is therefore »U important, in order to pet its benc- •eial effects, to note when you pur- ahmse, that you have the genuine arti- lle, which is manufactured by the California Fig 1 Syrup Co, only and sold by •U reputable druggists. U in the enjoyment of good health, •nd the system is regular, laxatives or Other remedies are then not needed. If afflicted with any actual disease, ono may be commended to the most skillful ffcysicians, but if in need of a laxative, me should have the best, and with the W«ll-informed everywhere, .Syrup of Tigs stands highest nnd is most largely i and gives most general satisfaction.

SUFFERING FOR A LIFE TIME. Persons afflicted with rhcumatlsu often suffer for a life time, their tor turcs- being almost without remission The joints and muscles of such un fortunates are in most cases shocking ly contorted -and drawn out of shape To afford them even temporary relief the ordinary remedies often prove ut terly useless. Hostetter's Stomacl: Bitters, on the other hand, Is avouched by-persons who have used it, to bo genuine source of relief. It keeps the blood cool by promoting a regular habit of body, and removes from It impurl tips which, In the opinion of all ratlona pathologists, originate this agonizing complaint, and its kindred malady, the ;out. Besides this the Bitters remedy disorders of the stomach, liver and nerves, prevent nnd eradicate intermittent fevers, promote appetite and sleep, and are highly recommended by physicians, as a desirable medicinal stimulant nnd tonic. SPEEDY GROWTH. A western man in attempting to tell his eastern friends how fast western cities grow, says he went off in the mountain hunting, and night coming on ho went to sleep up a tree out of ;he way of wolves. He was awakened next morning by some workmen who told him to get down and flnfsh his nap on the court house steps, as they wanted to turn tho tree into a flag >ole for the hotel, across the way. He jot down and while rubbing his eyes wns nearly run over by a street car and got his foot tangled in an electric wire.. i FREE PILLS.

Thus wisdom :uid experience simplify and condense. Thus the Shakers oC Mount Lebanon reasoned when they sought, and finally found, a remedy for Indigestion and dyspepsia. Whore ono person h.'is something else, they argued, a thousand have this. To euro this alone, will almost rid the world of sickness. Why should wo vex ourselves with confusing definitions?

I Blng you to rest with a dear old aong, That echoes from days of yore, And many a mother, -with love as strong, Has croonea.lt to babes before. Though many a blrtillng's aa soft.and white, And many a nest as small, Yet close fn my arms, I hold to-night, The sweetest baby of all! Though others may welcome to broader lands, And boast of a fuller store, And fill with their gifts tho tiny hands, Till money can buy no more. No matter to me what wealth bestows, For blnsslnga to each lot fall, And riches maypo! My own heart knows, The sweetest baby of all. The cooing wee words that babies repeat, And the droop of a sleepy head, And tho dimples lurking in hands and feet And a soft pink palm outspread. And the look of love in baby's eyes, Are Joys that never pall; Yet far more reason have I to prize Tho sweetest baby of all. Tho heavy lids close and, the downy head. Falls sleepily on my breast, And gently transferred to a little bed, My darling one sinks to rest. With nwlft little prayers that I watch aright. So nothing of 111 befall, Quite softly I kiss you good night, good night— Tho sweetest baby of all. —Nellie Si. Tener, In Farm Journal. FIGHT WITH A MADMAN BY WILLIAM A. TAAFFE. Dr. S.

I can emphasize, his statement, "It.is a positive cure for'ca- I was traveling 1 in s. "mixed, train 1 on a "jerkwater railroad" in Cal ifornia. These terms obtain in railwaj parlance. The train consisted of aaioj ley and sinuous length of freight cars with two passenger cars bringing- up the real-, one a smoker. I wns in the latter and it was night. At either end a fitfu and flickering 1 light faintly illumined the extremities ol the car and intcnsi fied the darkness of the rest of it, Thi only other occupant was a man at its further end, who sat directly under the light with his back tow;u-d me. I had been smoking furiously for hal an hour, trying 1 to subdue, in the solace of tobacco, the vexation caused by the irritating slowness of thu train as it rattled wearily along. For lack of anything better to do I pressed my face ng-ainst the window pone u.nd tried to decipher objects in. the outside black' ness through which we were moving Ghosts of telegraph poles flitted by in regular procession; the rails of a parallel track seemed to be racing' with thi. train and keeping up withit; occasional lights, few and far between, told when a farmhouse wns passed. This was neither exciting 1 nor entertaining 1 , and ] turned from tho dreariness without to that within. Then I noticed that the man at the further end had his arm thrown over the back of the seat and hii face was turned toward me. The cond actor, with his Ifmtern on his arm, entered at thas moment and proved a temporary, diversion. Was. the train late ? Yea, bufc the time would be made up before we reached the terminus. We had a couple of freight cars to drop at the next station and a couple to take on, but the delay would boslig-ht Xhecon- ductor walked the length of the car, re : turned, 'and went into the rear one. Gradually I began to rod. My cigarfell from my fingers, and I leaned sleepily over on my traveling bag beside me. I dozed for awhile until awakened by a jerk from the train. I looked ahead and saw my fellow passenger, no still had his arm over the back of the seat, ond he appeared to be gazing steadfastly in my direction. I noticed he was not in the Enoje seat as before, but in one three or four nearer my end of the cor. I was just wondering 1 how long 1 I had been asleep and how Jong 1 he had been watching: ine, when I saw him stealthily step into the nisle and sink into the next seat in my direction, his arm over its back and his face toward me as before. I was thoroughly awake and curious now, and a littl e uneasy to boot. He bad gotten into the dark shadows of the car, and all I could discern was his form and the indistinct white disk of his face. Two minutes, ond ag'aln a cat-like movement and change of seat. I leaned bock, feigned sleep, and watched him through partly closed eyelids. This, however, seemed to reassure him, for he advanced two seats in quick succession. I counted the backs ot the Beats. He was still six away from me. For a moment I felt inclined to get up and leave the car. I would not have admitted that I was afraid, but there was Bomething decidedly uncanny about the mysterious approach of the stronger in that darkened car, and I began to develop a rather healthy anxiety. Besides, I hod forgotten my revolver when leaving- home. Hod the conductor entered I would have been grateful. Still I was determined to see what the man's object nnght'be. AH the rays from the light in m'y end of the car fell upon him, I was bcttejr able to make him out. I could see he was a man of about my own age eaid physique, with piercing bl'ncV eyes jn which 1 thought I could detect a suspicion that I was not asleep. As I watched him advance, seat by seat, I wondered if he would attack me, and, if BO, how I should repel it. • My nerves are pretty good, but they were being sorely tried. Strange as it may seem, even during those critical momenta, while I ^ratched him as alertly as he did me, the monotonous rattle of the train got Into my head and compelled me to keep note of its regular but unmusical timebeat: Clock, clack, clickity-clack; click, click, clackity-click—he was but two seats away—clocfr, clacki clickity-clack he was in the seat immediately in front of me, his face not three-feet from my Dwn—click, click, clickity— I could stand it no longer; I opened. my eyes and met his gaze. A long moment, and then: "Well?" from me. "You.are my brother William." It was not a question, but an affirmation, solemnly .and slowly made. "You are mistaken," J began, immeasurably relieved. "I—" "•Yon are my brother William," he re- At this juncture, without any accountable reason, he paused, os if lii- "tening intently, arose and walked swiftly back to his seat at the extreme end of the car. Thereupon the door opened and the conductor stood beside him. • At once he gave him a long 1 and apparently animated recital. Several times he pointed to me. The railway official coime down the aisle, stopped and looked at me curiously. "Conductor," said I, "that man is a lunatic." In a few words I detailed tho actions •nd tlhe declaration of my fellow passenger. The conductor's expression of curiosity changed to one of amazement. "Why," said he, "I have just been told you did all that yourself. Are you both lunatics?" I was so astounded that I could think of nothing to say, and sat there looking at the conductor in an tiDcompar- ably stupid way. Thut functionary studied me dubiously for awhile, glanced back at the other man, and then, evidently concluding we were both harmless, left the car. The extraordinary passenger now remained passively In his Beat, with his back toward me. In a short while the train stopped. I looked out, but could discover no railway station. A braki?- nian rushed by me and uncoupled the forward freight cars, which the engine pulled nway to the station, a quarter of u. mile distant, leaving the two pas- jsenRreT cars Rtunding alone on tho plain. The r.ian ahead did not move, I turned to my bag for a second, to get B fresh cipnr. and when I looked again my man had disappeared. I could not believe it possible for him to have left the car within that incredibly short space of time, and I arose quickly and started to go forward. Almost instantly a couple of bullets whizzed past my head nnd crashed through the glass door behind me. I was dozed for the moment, but t.wo more shots and the falling of broken glass acted as a wonderful impetus, ar.d I dropped to the floor behind the scats. The next shot shattered the lamp at the opposite end of the car. Another, and I was covered with glass from the one above me. That the shooter wns a good marksman there was no mistaking 1 . After the lamps were demolished a perfect fusillade of shotc ensued, the most of them apparently being directed «t t.he door, to prevent ray escape in that direction. I lay perfectly still nnd tried to think. It seemed a long time before I heard voices 'on the outside, as the excited passengers and train crew gathered around the cor. None of them, of course, dared to enter it. I recognized the voice of the conductor as he said: "We'll have to wait until they kill each other." Some moments elapsed and the firing became less frequent, I began to hope that the ammunition of my would-be murderer was about exhausted. Suddenly it occurred to me tlhat the window might afford me an escape. Cautiously I reached my hand to the one above me and felt for the cateh on the sash. At thte very moment my ankle was grasped by the maniac, who had crawled under the seats to me. 1 think it is very possible that I cried out in terror when this happened. In a frenzy of despair I managed to tear myself loose from his grasp, struggled to ray feet, threw myself under-the seats on the opposite side of the c»r and begr-n to do some crawling myself. To my utter .. astonishment my antagonist rushed past me down the aisle. I heard the door slain, but did not know whether he had left the car or whether he had merely employed a ruse. For several moments absolute stillness reigned, and I hod just arrived at the conclusion "that the madman hod actually, departed when the door was pushed open ond 'the whole interior of the ;car lit up by a locomotive headlight, held by some one on th« platform. Back of thought stood the conductor with a pointed rifle.' "Hands up!" he cried,loudly. It wos a remarkable request to maka of a crazy man. . Ithought .there could, be-no .harm in obeying the command myself, and did so, half expecting to see the lunatic follow me. The rifle was wrought to bear upon me and a crowd pushed into the cor, headed by the man limself who had created all the terror. "There he is, friends!" he yelled. 'Seize him! Don't mind what be says. H«'J1' tell you that I am the lunatic, tiut don't mind him. My God! what an' escape I've bad!" The crowd bore down upon and oveor-. powered me. My struggles only served convince them that I was the madman. . But yet another surprise w»s in store iorme: "Here is his revolver," said the conductor, dramatically triumphant, pick- ng up a pistol which was lying on the seat beside my bag, "and here are the sxploded shells." It was true; a handful of them was OB the seat. My bag was searched, but there was nothing in it to establish my identity. VII my vociferous declarations and protestations went for naught. Fate seemed to side with my shrewd and cunning enemy, for at the terminus of he road the station agent handed tho conductor the following telegram: "Conductor of No. 7: John WilllDmson, ately released irom asylum hero as cured, a on your train. Qave me the slip. Will ikely become violent. Have him arrested, and returned to asylum.', ' „ "WILLIAM WILLIAMSON." Perhaps it was hot -remarkable, in lew of. these facts, that I was brought uack"on the next train,' fettered and securely guarded. At the asylum Mr.-WU- : lam Williamson, whom I resembled considerably.,'. awaited me. But .the. unatio who hod outwitted me and who md concocted and almost successfully Carried out a plan worthy.pf the keenest ntellect, apparently yet finds his dis- >rdered mind good enough for all prac- ical purposes.
