Drawing out the Mean Man.
Robert Carrick, one of the rich
est bankers of Scotland a few gen
erations ago, was as mean as
wealthy. Being one day visited
by a deputation collecting sub
scriptions toward anew hospital,
lie signed lor t wo guineas, and one
of the gentlemen expressing disap
pointment at the smallness of the
amount, he said: “Really, I can
not afford more.”
The deputation next visited
Wilson, one of the largest manu
facturers in the city, who, on see
ing the list, cried: “What, Cur
rick only two guineas?”
When informed of what the
banker had said, Wilson replied:
“Wait, 1 will give him a les
Taking his check book, lie filled
in a check for CU),(XX), the full
amount of his deposit at Garrick’s
bank, and sent it for immediate
Five minutes later the banker
appeared, breathless, and asked,
“What is the matter, Wilson?”
“Nothing the matter with me,”
replied Wilson ; “but these gentle
men inform that you couldn't
afford more than two guineas for
the hospital. Halloa! thinks 1,
if that's the case there must be
something wrong, and I'll get my
money out as soon as possible.”
Garrick took the subscription
list, erased the two guineas, and
substituted fifty, ou which Wilson
immediately tore up his check.
There is an old allegorical picture of
a girl scared at a grass-hopper, but in
the act of heedlessly treading on a
snake. This is paralleled by the man
who spends a large sum of money
building a cyclone cellar, but neglects
to provide his family with a bottle of
Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy as a safeguard
against bowels complaints, whose vic
tims outnumber those of the cyclone a
hundred to one. This remedy is every
where recognized as the most prompt
and reliable medicine in use for these
diseases. For sale by

which his right has been fully es

been pardoned by the New York
court of pardons. Bassler was
sentenced to two years in state

he related it to the court of par
dons, was that, while intoxicated,
he fell through a store window
with no intention of stealing.
Another prisoner, sentenced for
ten years in 189fi on a charge of
breaking into a postoffice, was pa

up the manufacture of a sewing

an authorized capitalization of

manufacture the machine. § The
pardoned prisoner is said to have

Fence 700 Miles Long.
Helena, Mont., Aug. 24.—1 tis
proposed to build a wire fence
seven hundred miles long on the
boundary line between Montana
and Canada, the necessity for this
huge undertaking arising from the
fact that several weeks ago a large
number of cattle that had strayed
to Canada from this state were
seized by the dominion officials
on the ground that they had
been smuggled. The fence will
probably be built jointly by the
Canadian and American govern
ments and the cost will be several
hundred thousand dollars.
Falling In Love With Mother.
Of all Hie love affairs in the
world, none can surpass the true
love of the big boy for his mother.
It is pure and noble, honorable in
the highest degree to both. We
do not mean merely a dutiful af
fection. We mean a love which
makes a boy gallant and courteous
to his mother, saying to every
body plainly that he is fairly in
love with her. Next to the love
of a husband, nothing so crowns
a woman’s life with honor as this
second love, this devotion of a son
to her. And we never knew a boy
to “turn out” badly who began
by falling in love with his mother.
Any man may fall in love with a
fresh faced girl, and the man who
is gallant with the girl may cruel
ly neglect the worn and weary
wife. But the boy who is a lover
of his mother in her middle age is
a true knight who will love his
wife as much in the sereleaved
autumn as he did in the

DYSENTERY CUBED WITHOUT
THE AID OF A DOCTOR.
"I am just up from a hard spell of
the flux” (dysentery) says Mr. T. A.
Pinner, a well known merchant of
Drummond. Tenn. "I used one small
bottle of Chamberlains Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy and was cured
without having a doctor. I consider it
the best cholera medicine in the world.”
There is no need of employing a doctor
when this remedy is used, for no doctor
cat; prescribe a better medicine for
bowel complaint in any form either for
children or adults. It never fails and
is pleasant to take. For sale by
