One day when Company B of tho Seventh was returning from a scout after hostile Indians a boy of ten whe had been hiding in a dry ditch sudden­ ly leaped up before the horses. His story was the familiar one. An emi­ grant camp had been beset by the lios- tiles at night, a score of men, women and children wiped out, and the boy had escaped, he knew not how. The soldiers claimed the orphan as their own, and in a way Company B adopt­ ed him. For the first year or two it was feared that relatives might turn up or that the colonel would send him away to be adopted and eared for by civil­ ians, but these calamities did not hap­ pen. The boy gave his name as Stanley Martin, and so the chaplain wrote it down in making a record, but the sol­ diers called him Billy from the first day to the last. He was a bright., cheerful 3*oungster by nature, and aft-1 er time had blunted his grief no one laughed oftener than Billy. The pet­ ting he received from the men of the company would have spoiled most kids, but it made Billy none the worse, lie might have picked up profanity, selfishness and braggadocio, but ho never did. lie was encouraged to smoke and chew, but lie did not fall into those bad habits. At the age of twelve he was better educated than some of the corporals, and at fourteen the commissary took him on as a clerk. How it was arranged does not mat­ ter, but a year later Billy became Company B's bugler. He had been a pupil until he could be taught nothing more. Ills bugle calls were music to the whole regiment, and let others wind the horn as they might their . . . 111 » Hi, vtl Tired-Out Women. Fagged-out women, suffering from back­ ache, unable to stand long or walk far, or with symptoms incident to the weaknesses peculiar to the sex—such women need a friend to tell them that m any such symptoms are the result of physical conditions that can be remedied only by building up the strength. This building up can be done most effect­ ually with Celery King. It cleanses the stom­ ach and bowels, giving restful sleep and the appetite o f girlhood. notes could deceive no one. And at fifteen he was as fresh faced and hon­ est looking a lad as any father or mother could have wished to call son. There wasn’t an officer in the regiment who wouldn’t have been glatl to chip in for n purse to send the boy to some school in the states and give him a show to make his way in civil life, but Billy had determined on a soldier’s career and begged to be permitted to stay with the Seventh. Soon after his promotion the Indians, who had somehow held on to them­ selves for four or five years, dug up the hatchet and took to the warpath. News reached Fort McPherson after a bit that a band of them were raiding down Smoky valley. There were but two companies at the fort just then, and they held themselves in readiness to be ordered out at any moment. It was six miles from the post over to the valley, and many a time during the days of peace Billy had mounted the Indian pony given him by the quarter­ master and ridden over to Wharton’s ranch. Wharton himself was jolly and good natural, his wife was motherly and kind hearted, and their daughter Kate, a year younger than the bugler, was handsome.enough to set a boy’s heart fluttering. The soldiers caught on after awhile and had their jokes at Billy’s expense, but they did not go too far. Even the roughest of the men always respected the boy’s feelings. He blushed and stammered when they laughed at his love affair, but he went just as often to Wharton’s. One day, and for the first time, he was sent there officially. The hostiles were taking in the whole length of the valley, beating back or dodging the forces sent out, and if the Whartons did not seek the shelter of the fort they were certain to fall victims with­ in a day or two. Other settlers had come in, but Wharton argued that the marauders would turn back before his place was reached. The colonel of the Seventh had written him almost a peremptory order to come In without an hour’s delay, and Billy was the messenger deputed to carry it. He had a fast pony, was a good rider and had a cool head, and it was argued that lie would be several hours ahead of danger. A light Winchester and a belt of cartridges were given him, and it was only when he was on his way that any one noticed the bugle slung to his back. He rode at a fast pace and reached Wharton’s without adventure. The message must have convinced the ranchman of the necessity of haste, for he brought up his wagon and began loading it with household effects. It was while thus engaged that the In­ dians came upon him. Billy had left the fort at 10 o’clock in the forenoon. It could be figured out that If Wharton refused to come the boy would be back at half past 12 at the latest. If Wharton accompanied him back, then it might be an hour later. It came 1 o'clock, and it came 2 and 3 , and there was no sign of Billy. Then the colonel ordered out Company B for a scout. There were only seven­ ty men, but it was believed they could take care of any force likely to be met with that far down the valley.

B I R K E T T , SOLE MANUFACTURER, orders were to ride on until they found tho boy, and tbc troop was no sooner clear of the stockade than the horses were put to the gallop. They hoped to meet Billy before tlie crest of Snake hill was reached, but when a halt was made on the summit to breathe the horses and tlie troopers looked down upon Wharton’s ranch, still three miles away, n dozen men cried out in chorus: “Look! Look! The redskins have jumped the ranch and arc burning tho house.” Clouds of smoke were arising from three or four points on the ranch prop­ erty. but utter a minute it was seen that sheds and stacks only had been fired and that the house itself was still Intact. But as the soldiers used their naked eyes and the officers their glass­ es to locate the redskins the sounds of ritie shots came floating up to them, followed by tlie notes of a bugle. Bu­ gler Billy was sounding “Boots and saddles!” as a call for aid. Company B hail brought along a su­ pernumerary bugler. Tlie captain nod­ ded to him. lie dismounted, climbed the big bowlder which was a landmark and from its crest sent the stirring notes back across the valley to tell the beleaguered ones that rescue was at hand. Then as lie touched the saddle again the troop went thundering down the eastern slope to fall upon the Indi­ ans red handed. It reached the valley, it had formed platoon front, the car­ bines had been unslung, when up rose 200 warriors to bar its further prog­ ress and its retreat and drive it to cover on tlie right. Ten saddles had been emptied before cover was reached. The Indians had set a trap, and the troopers had galloped info it. For half an hour the hostiles pressed the attack so vigorously that it seemed as if the troop must be wiped out, but the cool and steady fire of the soldiers finally cleared the foe away, and rifle and carbine ceased their racket for a time. As silence fell came the notes of Bil­ ly’s bugle to tell his comrades that he was still alive and knew of their near presence. Again he was answered, but the men shook their heads ard cursed and muttered. It was plain to them that the boy and the Whartons were beset in the ranchliouse by twenty to one and just as plain that they were helpless to aid them. The Indians had simply fallen back to cover instead of retreating. The troop was surrounded and shut in, and to attempt to break out of the circle meant a massacre. Now began a fierce attack on the ranchliouse that lasted for half an hour. When the firing had died away, Billy’s bugle calls floated across the level to tell his comrades that the fort still held out, and they were answered with wild cheers. Twice again before the sun went down the Indians made fierce attacks on the intrenched troop­ ers, to be driven back, and twice and thrice they renewed the attacks on the house. Again after the attack at 0 o'clock Billy’s bugle calls were heard, but three-quarters of an hour later the troopers sprang up and exclaimed to each other: ‘‘Those are not Billy’s notes! Some one else is sounding the call!” “ ’Tis Wharton’s daughter!” whis­ pered the old first sergeant. “Our Billy has taught her to blow the bugle. Comrades, our boy lies dead or wounded.” Thirty minutes later, as the red rim of the summer sun was sinking out of sight, there came a last cult from the ranchliouse. It was from the lips of the girl again. Just then silence fell upon the valley, or the low and quaver­ ing notes might not have reached the cars of tlie troopers.' The girl was blowing the call of “Lights out!” “God! God!” sobbed the men as they listened and realized what the notes meant. “She is the last to die!” whispered tho captain as he turned away his head. Under cover of darkness the hostiles drew off and were thirty miles away when morning came. Then the troop­ ers closed in on the battered, half burned ranchliouse and sat with bared heads while their officers went Inside. “Not a cartridge left and all dead!” said the captain ns he came out, with his hat in liis hand. “It was the girl who lived longest, and it was she who blew ‘Lights out!’ when all hope was gone.

Petrification is simply tlie substitu­ tion of inorganic for organic matter atom by atom. This process of trans­ formation is unthinkably slow. As a molecule of wood or bone decays a molecule of stone takes its place. This can only occur when the air, earth or water surrounding tlie organic sub­ stance in question holds in solution some mineral which Is readily precip­ itated. In the case of either wood or bone while decomposition is going on there yet remains a framework or fiber, the interstices of which may gradually be filled by tlie mineral sub­ stance. With flesh, be it human or ani­ mal, no such framework exists. The very rapid decay of flesli also makes it impossible for the very slow process of petrifaction to have any effect in the way of making a transformation. The stories of petrified bodies being found in graveyards are usually “faked up” by some imaginative re­ porter who wishes to lengthen his “string.” It is true, however, that the bodies of human beings have been, fre­ quently found incrusted with a sili­ ceous substance so as to resemble real petrifactions in every particular. M a k in g a C u b b le. The other day a gentleman went into a pipemaker’s shop at Edinburgh with the intention of seeing the method of making pipes. When he got in, he found only a boy in the shop; so, without more ado, he thus addressed him: “Weel, my callant, I’ll gie ye six­ pence an' ye’ll show us how ye mak’ yer pipes.” “I canna mak’ a peep, sir,” replied the lad; “I can only malt’ a cubble.” “A cubble! What’s that, my hin- ney ?” “It’s a short peep,” replied the boy, '‘sic as men an’ women smoke oot on.” “Why, I’ll gie ye sixpence an’ ye'll show us how ye mak’ that.” “Gie’s yer sixpence furst,” was the reply. The gentleman gave the boy sixpence, when he took a long pipe and broke a piece off it, saying: “There, now, sir; that is the way 1 mak’ cubbies.”—London Answers.

One of the great advantages of glyc­ erin in its chemical employment is the fact that it neither freezes nor evap­ orates under any ordinary temperature. No perceptible loss by evaporation has been detected at a temperature less than 200 degrees F., but if heated in­ tensely it decomposes with a smell that few persons find themselves able to en­ dure. It burns with a pale flame, sim­ ilar to that from alcohol, if heated to about 300 degrees and then ignited. Its nonevaporative qualities make the compound of much use as a vehicle for holding pigments and colors, as in stamping and typewriter ribbons, car­ bon papers and the like. If the pure glycerin be exposed for a long time to a freezing temperature, it crystallizes with the appearance of sugar candy, but these crystals being once melted it is almost an impossibil­ ity to get them again into the con­ gealed state. If a little water be nflded to the glycerin, no crystallization will take place, though under a sufficient degree of cold the water will separate and form crystals, amid which the glycerin will remain in its natural state of fluidity. If suddenly subjected to intense cold, pure glycerin will form a gummy mass which cannot be en­ tirely hardened or crystallized. Alto­ gether it is quite a peculiar substance. On th e C a r p e t . The London Chronicle in an arti­ cle criticising a popular book says, apropos of the expression “on the car­ pet,” which is used in the book: “On the carpet” again. Without any wish to charge so brilliant an author with the offenses of her times, we are compelled to observe, in the same book, that absurd carpet spread once more for the discussion of affairs. “Le tapis,” on which things have been talked over in French literature, is, need we say, not a carpet, but a table cover- in fact, the green baize table cover of diplomatic convocation. On that are laid the papers, the protocols. A tapis is a carpet only when it covers the floor. Paper hangings are called ta- pisserie, but even the English haste to burlesque, with an eye to quaint- ness, the idioms of the stranger has not led our authors to speak of car­ peting French walls. Would that “jumps to the eyes” and “it goes with­ out saying” might be suppressed for­ ever in English; but, at any rate, they are correct translations, whereas “on the carpet” is not. Time seems most untimely when he brings A woman to the turn of life. Life is or should be at its ripest and best for her, and she ap­ proaches this change with a dread of its effect born of her knowledge of the sufferings of other women at this season. There is not the slightest cause for fear or anxiety at this period if Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription is used. It gives health of body and cheerfulness of mind, and by its aid the pains and pangs of this critical period are pre­ vented or cured.

Sorry, but ’poll my life I simply can’t,” Ridge ley said, nodding solemnly and blink­ ing like on owl. Ridgeley was forty- five, bibulous, bulbous, with a fortune swollen to match his bulk and a fond­ ness for spending his money In strictly his own ways. The room was deadly still. Trcnwick started a little at the click of a coal cracking In the grate. He got up, stood with his back to the lire, so its telltale light could not reach his face as he said, with the least little shrug: “That must be as you please. I won­ der, though, if you quite realize what your refusal must mean to me?” For a moment Ridgeley sat silent; then his hand went to the bell, and he said half querulously: “Say what, my boy? You must have a bracer—two bracers—before you go down to the street. Beastly place anyway! It’s— it’s a shame you ever went into it.” “It will be a blacker shame my get­ ting out of it,\ Trenwick said grimly. Then, his voice shaking with passion: “Ridgeley. surely you—you don’t un­ derstand it. It—it is all true, every word I told you. To save myself from beggary I used another man’s money without his knowledge. Unless—unless I replace it before he does know I shall go behind the bars—that is, if I let my­ self live. You know I would never do that.” “Cut the whole wretched mess! I'll lend you five hundred,” Ridgeley be­ gan. Trenwlck’s face got gray. Something seemed to clutch his throat. Involun­ tarily he stood a thought straighter. “A Trenwick never yet ran away from anything,” he began, then dropped his face in his hands, saying huskily, “nor stole until I disgraced the blood.” “Cheer up! You—you make me nervous,” Ridgeley said, nodding again and settling the big diamond upon his shirt front where it would catch a brighter gleam of firelight. Ridgeley was given to purple and fine linen. Upon the least occasion his rai­ ment was positively riotous. A ruby, almost priceless, glimmered upon his hand. He turned the stone, glanced complacently at it and called to his man, who came noiselessly through the door, “ Two fizzy ones, Jenkins, and make ’em good and long.” Then as the door closed behind Jenkins: “ 'Pon me soul, dear boy, I’d like to see you through, but twenty thousand! It would be downright immoral to risk so much money. Why, that would keep a yacht in commission almost a sea­ son through!” Trenwick turned to the window. Out­ side the tide of life in the avenue was at flood. It was turning 12 o’clock. He bad until 3 to make good his bal­ ances. If only he could make good, he was sure the very next day would find him in tlie flood tide of fortune. There was a fickle, semipanicky market. He stood to win the stake of his life if only he could keep above water until the tide turned. Nothing short of that imminent hazard would have brought him to Ridgeley. Ridgeley had seemed to him these twenty years past, ever since he came suddenly into great riches, as not much more than a human clot, wholly unlike the slow witted yet gallant lad who had been his chum at college. Because of that semicontemptuous regard he had never sought to profit by old time Intimacy with the bachelor millionaire. Trenwick wondered dully as he looked at him how it came about that he was a bachelor. It could not be that old boy and girl affair with his sister May. May had been dead this twenty years and more. She had died indeed before her wedding gown was out of fashion. Judge Barton, her rich old husband, had mourned her deeply, but not enough to keep him from exacting usurious interest for every loan he made Trenwick nor from turning him outdoors when the debts and the inter­ est ate up the family estate. The judge’s widow lived there now, with her healthy young son to come after her. May’s child had not lived. Some­ how Trenwick felt that as a sort of special punishment to himself. He had virtually made the match for his sis­ ter. He was worldly, even case hard­ ened, but still he did not like to recell her eyes when he had said to her: “Of course you’ll marry the judge. You are the luckiest girl I know to have the chance of him. Think what it would be to put up with an ordinary dull fellow—say with poor old Ridge­ ley.” And then he had stopped short, for May had run away, with her head high, but her cheeks like ashes. It all came back to him as he stood beside the window watching the vivid human stream without. Stealthily he turned and looked Ridgeley over, try­ ing to recall in his unwieldy bulk the open features, the manly, fair propor­ tions of liis old college mate. A vague, keen anguish shot through him. Why was all life so crisscross? Why every­ thing one laid hold on futile? If for­ tune needs must come to Ridgeley, why not have come in time? I-Ie was sensible It had been pride and poverty that had kept Ridgeley from speaking out. In the old days Ridgeley had had nothing beyond the promise of his very moderate wits. I-Ils uncle, who had educated him, could barely tolerate him until his own son died and loft poor Ridgeley alone to Inherit the mil­ lions n'hnt was a month after May’s marriage. She had not been dead six mouths when Ridgeley was in posses­ sion of tho big estate. If those two had married! Trenwick dashed a hand across his eyes. lie was mooning there, with life itself at stake. Ridgeley was his last hope, and Ridgeley had failed him. He had bumbled himself to supplication. Ho could not do It again. He was learn­ ing that there arc things very much harder than death. All that remained now for him was to make an end of things as quickly and ns decently as possible. As noiselessly as by magic two tall, foaming goblets had appeared. Ridge­ ley motioned him to come and take one of them, himself eagerly carrying the other to his lips with a mumbled, “Here's luck!” Suddenly Trenwick was conscious of raging thirst. He emptied his glass at a draft and set it down, clinking it lightly against the massy silver tray. Ridgeley beamed vacuously on him. “Really, you’ll agree Jenkins has a touch,” he said. “Have another! Do! It—It’ll set you up so near the clouds you won’t come down again until tomorrow.” Trenwick shook his head. “I must keep away from the clouds,” he said. “You know how I used to build cas­ tles there. I have never built one— since May died.” Ridgeley set down hie glass. This time the quiver rang underneath it “It’s odd about us three,” he said, speaking very low. “May was the only one to marry. I wonder how we happened not to!” “Oh, I’ve always had too little mon­ ey and you too much,” Trenwick said, turning toward the door. “So long, old man! Get over the caution of a capitalist and marry before It’s too late.” “Stop! Are you going back down there?\ Ridgeley asked, nodding in the direction of tlie street. Trenwick shook his head. “No use. I cannot alter— anything,” he said. “I think I shall go to my club for an hour. After that —well. I have not quite decided.” “Come back,” Ridgeley said, “I—I want to talk to you. I—I haven't been quite square with you. It is—not the money I mind. But—you were not square with me—in the old time, you know. May—I love her. I love her yet. And you—you came between us. So I’ve waited to get even, you know. I knew you’d come to me some time. Oh, I’m not quite such a fool as I look! You—you kept me from getting what I wanted most in the world. Now— the score’s even—and I—and I can’t be glad.” “You have done right. I was a cur to come to you, knowing what I did,” Trenwick said thickly. “I cannot ask your pardon, because I cannot pardon myself. I crossed your path because I loved my sister and was ambitious for her. By the light I had I was right\— “Yes. You were right,” Ridgeley said, dropping his head upon the table, with a sigh that was half a sob. “I had nothing and wasn’t much myself. But, oh, if you had let me have M-May I—feel—as—though I—might have- conquered the world.” “Goodby!” Trenwick said huskily, again moving toward the door. Half way he turned back. Ridgeley still sat with his head on the table. Trenwick went up to him and said in his ear, “Will you do one thing for me, Ridge­ ley?” “What is it?” Ridgeley asked, with­ out stirring. “To keep this while you live and de­ stroy it before you die,” Trenwick said, slipping a golden oval into his hand. “May’s miniature,” he began. “I can­ not bear to have it found on me and maybe exploited as the most sensa­ tional feature of the case. There will be noise and dirt enough in it anyway. I don't want it to touch her, yet I could not destroy this myself.” “I would kill you if you did,” Ridge­ ley cried, clutching the picture and car­ rying it to his lips. “May, darling,” he moaned, “ they shall not take you away from me again. I have cried night aft­ er night because I could not remember you—your eyes, your lips and all. Now I will not give you up for millions—all the millions in the world.” “There is no need. Goodby,” Tren­ wick said, with his hand upon the latch. Ridgeley almost bellowed after him, “ Come back!” His checkbook lay upon the table be­ side him. With a shaking hand he scrawled his name upon a leaf and tossed it blank to Trenwick. “Fill that in for what you like,” he said. “No; don’t thank me. Only come back as soon as you have things straight.” Trenwick walked away as one blind, seeing all things through a mist, but his spirit was enlightened. T h e Beet Sugar and Its Poiatbil- itiea. It is predicted by the sugar men in this country that the beet sugar has a great future, and the producer and the consum­ er are to be immensely benefited there­ by, as Secretary Wilson points out that that he expects to see home-made beet- sugar selling in our grocery stores at two cents a pound, with a good profit to the farmer who grows the beet, and a good profit to the men who own the fac­ tories. We are children—mere begin­ ners in the business—but if we ap­ ply the great American genius — the genius that has made us the foremost producing country on earth—we will teach the Old World how to grow the crop and make money out of it. Very re­ cently I saw an article from the pen of a German writer comparlngthesugarindns- try o f this country to that of his own, with in which he ttated they had been grow­ ing sugar for neatly one hundred years, and this country had been engaged in the beet sugar industry but about 15 yc ars and we are far ahead of them in field and factory. About five years ago it was impossible to get any part of a beet sugar factory in this country. Note the improvement American ingenuity set to work, andi to- dey we build the best beet sugar factory on earth, make better sugar, more of it, and at a much less expense. When oar people first began to make beet sugar the farmers who raised beets found it a back-aching job, but our in­ ventors, who are alwajs ready to seize an opportunity to lighten labor and multiply the results, saw that it was “ up to them” to furnish proper implements and ma­ chinery. Before long they will not only relieve the farmer largely from manual labor, but will provide tools that will en­ able him to do more work and produce better results than now. You can trust Yankee genius to take care of that situa­ tion. I don’t know much about the profit to Ihe manufacturer. I deal with the farm-! ers, but I assume that there is a good pro­ fit in the business, or the factories would not be springing up so fast all over the country. No other indusby in the United States is developing so rapidly, and per­ haps none has ever grown so fast as the beet sugar Industry. Now, while th,e great West is develop­ ing the beet sugar industry to such an extent, let us at home in little Yates take a hand in it. It is the duty of every far­ mer who has an acre of sugar-beet land to help the industry along and if he can’t see such a large profit as his mote progressive neighbor it will lend aid to the coming industry of this section. Now, every individual in this section should havei at least a good word for it, because no man or party of men can succeed in a neighborhood withontbeiplng every man, woman, and child therein. There must be a leader or leaders in all industries. It matters not who he is. Be charitable, and at least give an encouraging word if not financial help. Remember that co!d water is a very bad thing to throw on a promoter who is trying to promote some­ thing to benefit his neighbor as well as himself. 1 very truly yours in beet sugar. T. S. B urns . (From Ihe Baltimore S um , January 6,1903.) The E. B. Porter Rotary Eogine and Machine company, of Balumtre, will be Incorporated under ihe Jaws of Delaware within the next week or ten days, to manu­ facture a new compound rotary engine, the invention of Mr. E. B. Porter. The company is to be capitalized at $100,coo, The officers will be Mr. James M. Thomas, president; Mr. Lewis M. Keizer, vice- president; Mr, E. B. Porter, second vice- president and mechanical engineer; Mr. John O. Stafford, secrearj; Mr. Thomas J. McGlone, treasurer, and Mr. George R, Willis, general council. It is to be en­ tirely a Baltimore concern. Mr. Porter is a watchmaker, and has been working on bis inv ntton for the last twenty-three years. He sought to discover the means of saving the tremend­ ous quantity of energy that is now lost by steam engines, and of applying the pow­ er direct. He is cotfident that he has solved the problem. The engine has no dead center, no pie- tons, piston rings or tods, no steam chest valve, valve reds, eccentrics, cams, link motions, sliding parts, or any of those things common to the accepted type of engines. It receives its steam at the highest temperature possible. Mr. Porter is past 50 years old, and proud of his invention. Of it he said yes­ terday: ‘The advantages claimed for this engine are: More increased power in a given cub c space, w.th economy in steam used, than possible with any other form or type of engine, as there are no dead centers, All steam entering the en­ gine isnsed expansively to produce pow­ er in and acts m four places continuously. The steam is controlled by two valves, whose petition is at all times made vari­ able at the will of the operator through the throttle and reverse lever, and two rotary cut-offs, which revolve contiguous to or in contact (aa detired) wiih said valves. The engine is started, stopped or reversed instantly by means of the throttle lever or wheel, by a back and forth movement. There is entire absence of vibration, and perfect control at all times. Starting in either direction, and reversed while in motion; equally power­ ful in either direction, with great speed or slow movement. It is of few parts, every moving part has a rotary motiou and is perfectly balanced, and is easily set up or installed. It will tun in any position in either direction. Mr. Porter, the inventor, is a resident of Penn Yan. TO T H E P U B L IC . Having purchased the photographic business of H. R.

T r u e G e n e r o s it y . A charming story of the late queen of England, vouched for by Mr. A. F. Story, is told in the “Childhood of Queen Victoria.” It is so consistent with the queen’s known kindness of heart that it speaks for its own truth. The Princess Victoria had set her heart on buying a doll she had seen in a shop window, but her mother, the Duchess of Kent, would not let her buy it until her next allowance of pocket money was due. At last the day came, and the prin­ cess hurried to the shop, paid over the six bright shillings and got the long coveted doll. On coming out of the shop with her treasure in her arms the princess en­ countered a wretchedly miserable tramp, who plucked up courage enough to ask for help. The princess hesitated a moment: then, realizing that she no longer had any money left for the man, she returned to the shopkeeper and gave him back the doll. He gave her the G shillings, promising also to keep the doll for her for a few days. Then the little lady hurried out of the shop and thrust the whole of the money into the hands of flip beggar. T h e Sun on E v e r y Side. A Texas citizen, says an exchange, Is worried because the sun shines on each of the four sides of his house at some time of the day.

Very few Doctors, who began their prac­ tice iorty years ago are left to tell the stoiy of the wayt rod methods of those earlier times. The old saddle-bags contained Dover’s powder, Calomel, Pink and tienns, the last given to the young to cure worms, and also to give proper religious bent. Bleeding, even to the point of prostration, was an adjunct to the drug remedies. The Allopathic School held the fort for many years; it was finally changed and modified by the Homeopathic and Eclectic Schools, and the Galvanic Incubator. Taking all the different schools of med­ icine, including those called irregulars, the Christian Scientists, Magnetic Healers, Os­ teopaths have tailed to give us any surety of periect diagnosis and treatment of disease. They make lamentable failures aa yet, showing their knowledge very imper­ fect and not to be relied upon. We still have heart disease, sugar diabetes, Bright’s disease, dyspepsia, rheumatism, paralysis and all other various ills that seem to baffle the skill oi the phys­ ician to rightly name the disease or perform a cure. First, we are aware that wisdom and knowledge are the result of long years of toil and research, and that deep down in human life the loftiest truths are born. Dr. Butterfield starts out from a different standpoint, basing his knowledge upon* spiritual insight into the causes of you condition ana the reasons for your suffer, ing. This spiritual insight is the incentive to all progress and Is the one method by which the right remedies can be used to suit the case. The Doctor has been coming to Penn Yan foreight years, and has cured hundreds of cases that have come to him as a last re­ sort, and he has cured where all others had failed and hope had gone. He uses vegetable remedies entirely, which are as natural as fruit, in the system. They can be taken by any one, no matter how delicate the stomach. The Doctor cures some of the worst cases of kidney and bladder trouble, enlarged liver and heart disease, dyspepsia, rheumatism and all other forms of chronic diseases. All are welcome to a free examination. His long experience is worth everything to the chronic invalid. Dr. Butterfield will be at the Knapp House, Penn Yan, N. Y. on Wednesday. February 11 , 1903 .
