It brings instant relief in the worst

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and Asthma for
ten years. I despaired of ever being
cured. I saw your advertisement for the
cure of this dreadful and tormenting dis
ease, Asthma, and thought you had over
spoken yourselves, but resolved to give it
a trial. To my astonishment, the trial
acted like a charm. Send me a full size

THE RICE TABLE.
A and tleauirkable Meal
Served In .lavn.
“At 1 o’clock.’’ says :i correspondent
of the Kansas City Star, "every bold
In Java serves a most distinctive amt
remarkable meal called the rice table
(rijst-uifei). A large, iiat. bowl shaped
dish is placed in front of you, which
you fill with beautiful, white, flaky
rice, borne about itidisliis balding fully
a quarter of a bushel. Thin eomes a
seemingly never ending .-.:ream of na
lives, each hearing a dish containing
sonic different meat, vegetable or can
diluent, front which you take a small
portion and place it on top of the rice.
"Alter you have had a little of every
thing you mince It up with a knife and
fork and mix it well wi'li the rice and
then fail to with a large spoon. A lisi
of the side dishes, with an ordinary
rice tnlile. would read something like
tills: Fried eggs, omelet, fried chicken,
broiled chicken, stewed chicken, beef
steak, sausage, flsb, fritters, a mixture
. of vegetables stewed with a mustard
dressing, raw cucumbers, liver and ten
or twelve different spices and relishes,
Many a stout Dutchman have we
seen take a liberal helping from each
dish In addition to almost a quart of
rice for a background of -table.’ Natu
rally every one must go to sleep fiuine
i dlately after such a meal, and all busi
ness is suspended for several hours.
The dinner in the evening at 8 o’clock
is a very simple meal.”
The Wron* Room.
“While spending a vacation at Bed- j
ford Springs. Pa., some years ago,”
said a Baltimore lawyer the other day.
“I went late one night to my room, as
I supposed, unlocked the door and was
startled by a woman’s screams. I re
alized at once that 1 bad fcot Into the'
wrong room. You may be sure I did
not waste any time getting out Into
the corridor, locking the door again
and entering my room, which happen
ed to be the next one.
“While I was doing this the woman
continued screaming, alarming the
whole hotel. A crowd soon gathered,
and when the woman could be per
suaded to open the door she declared
there was a man in her room. Of
course no Intruder was found, and. as
the door was locked when the crowd
gathered, the lady was told that she
must have had a nightmare and imag
ined she saw a man In her room. I
kept quiet, and every one else in the
hotel was convinced that the lady’s im
agination bud worked upon her fears.”
Popular Weather Notions.
How often do we bear the remark,
"We shall have rain, the atmosphere
Is so heavy.” The reverse Is true;
When one sees mnoke banging from ft
chimney, with a tendency to sink to
the ground, it indicates that the at
mosphere is light—in fact too light to
float the smoke. When the stnobe
rises from the chimney, It indicates 8
heavy atmosphere. A column of smokfe
is not a bad barometer, for a barometer
simply records the pressure of the at
mosphere. When the atmosphere is
light and the smoke settles, the pres
sure on the mercury is light, and the
column falls, indicating storm. When
the atmosphere is heavy and the smoke
rises, the pressure is greater and the
column rises, indicating fair weather.
Pleasure seekers and others before
starting out should therefore watch
the smoke. *
The Three D’*.
“Down In Greensboro,” said a citizen
of that North Carolina town, “I knew
three •drummers.’ They seemed to be
boon companions. The first one travel
ed for a large brewing company in Bal
timore, and the second represented a
wholesale drughouse In the west.
These two men, while going through
the south, fell In with a man who was
selling coffins to undertakers In the
country towns. When the trio reached
Greensboro to spend Sunday—you
know all the ‘drummers’ come into
Greensboro to spend Sunday—they had
already been christened the three D’s—
