"For years my hands would become
so numb at times that I would drop
anything I attempted to lift. .Later
they becamo bo bad that I could not sew
any longer, and at hint I could scarcely
do anything at all with my hands. At
night the pricking sensations would
come on worse than ever, and my hands
and arms wvuld pain so that I dreaded
to go to bed. My family doctor gave mo
some nerve tablets. They helped me a
little, but only for a short time alter I
had taken them and if I happened to be
without them for a day or two I would
boas bad as ever or even worse. Finally
I got a box of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and began to take them.
"The result was surprising. By the
time I had taken the last pill in my first
box I could seo a gain. Thanks to Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, I am now all right.

when I'm in New York I drink more

TREASURED GIFT OF MONARCH.
Luck of Muncaster Hall a Relic of Un-
In Muncaster castle, in Cumberland.
England, the seat of Lord Muncaster.
there is, in the oldest part of the
building, a room which is known as
the King's room. According to tradi
tion this was once occupied by Henry
VI. In it may be seen four ancient
bedposts of handsome carved oak, in
an excellent state of preservation, and
which are believed to belong to the
bed in which the king slept.
It was in the year 14G1 that ho was
at Muncaster. The Wars of the Roses
were convulsing the kingdom at the
time, and the unfortunate king, flee-
ing for his life after the defeat of his
troops at Towton, made his way into
Cumberland, where he was reduced to
wandering about in a destitute condi-
tion on the hills. Here he was found
one night by some loyal shepherds,
who conducted him safely to Muncas-
ter castle, where lived Sir John Pen-
nington, an ancestor of Lord Muncas-
ter, who was a devoted adherent to
the Lancastrian cause. Henry received
a hearty welcome, and lay concealed
at Muncaster for many weeks, while
his enemies made active search for
him high and low. At length his pres-
ence there became suspected, and he
could no longer remain in safety. Be-
fore setting out on his travels again
Henry took sorrowful leave of his
faithful host. "Silver and gold and
jewels have I noTie to give," he said,
"but this will I give yon, and along
with it the blessing of the most un
fortunate of princes." He thereupon
presented Sir John with a curious
glass bowl in which he had been ac-
customed to keep holy water, and,
kneeling down, he prayed that every
blessing might await the friend who
had shown such constancy to him
in his heavy misfortunes, and further
that a male heir might never be want-
ing to this ancient race. In conclu-
sion, the king assured Sir John that
the family would prosper so "long as
they preserved the bowl unbroken.
So saying, he went out into the world
MAKING RUBIES FOR A DIME
Perfect Gems Turned Out by Two
In a little dark basement at the cor-
ner of Fifth avenue and Jackson
street, two French chemists, with tbe
assistance of Dr. Horace Byers, pro-
fessor of chemistry at tho state uni
versify, are turning out rubies which
are pronounced as good as aro de-
veloped in nature's laboratory, and
at a price averaging ten cents each.
The experiments have been con-
ducted for several weeks, and every
effort has been made to keep the

Four and a half centuries have
passed away since that pathetic scene
was enacted within the grim walls of
Muncaster castle, but the bowl is still
in existence. It is of glass, of a pale-
green color, with a simple ornamenta-
tion in gold and enamel, and is about
six inches in diameter and two and
a half in height. Delicate and fragile
as it is, the care which has been be
stowed upon it has preserved It while
generation after generation of Pen
ningtons have passed away, and thus
it has been brought down to the pres-
ent day a valuable relic of the past,
rich in association of historical inci-
dent and heavy with the interest with
which centuries of devotion have in-
vested it. It is only brought out now
on very rare and important occasions,
and the only use to which it is put is
that it is employed as a christening

Growth of Purebred Business Shows
"Oklahoma stockmen are beginning
to show more interest in purebred cat-
tle," said F. C. Burtis, professor of
animal husbandry at the Oklahoma
agricultural college, Stillwater, to a
representative of the Kansas City
Journal, "an-1 it will not be long be-
fore that territory will make a good
showing in the big stock shows of the
country. Tbe college at Stillwater is
doing what it can to convince the
farmers that fine cattle can be raised
there as well as those of the long-
horned range variety, and we keep
them advised of our successful experi-
ments. A gradual improvement of the
stock of Oklahoma may be expected.
"One of the things which we have
to contend with is the old fallacy that
horses cannot be successfully raised
in the territory. Our experiments
have shown the uttery folly of this old
theory, yet every now and then we
hear from men who wish to know
whether it would pay them to take
their stock to Oklahoma. While we
have experimented with various kinds
of horses and had success, we have
been particularly fortunate with Per-
cherons, and from a pair of mares,
bought in Missouri four years ago,
we have secured approximately $5,000
worth of fine draft horses."
ivilxed Hospital Staffs
At a recent examination for the ap-
pointment of a junior medical officer
in an English workhouse, three of tho
five applicants were women. The
board of guardians, composed in part
of women, after an animated discus-
sion,-decided to admit to examination
only the two men. The women guar-
dians, although in a small minority,
made a hard fight for equality of the
sexes. The women were debarred
on the ground that experience hail
shown a mixed hospital staff to mean
much less efficiency than one com-
posed entirely of one sex or the other.
Although the women guardians at-
tributed the action to prejudice and
jealousy on the part of the men, there
is undoubtedly considerable force in
the arguments against coeducation in

"A year or two ago I became sub-
