I 'nd «ter red by tbe magnitude of
the task and the terrible loss of Ufa
that Its construction must Involve,
Che-Hwangte gave tbe word and tbe
huge structure slowly forged Its way
from many centers at once along the
entire northern boundary of what waa
then the Chinese empire. Che-Hwang-
le enlisted the workers in many ways
and from many quarters. Some of
his press gang work was hardly cred-
itable. for It Is on record that the
mere possession of a book condemned
the wretched owner to four years'
hard labor on the wall.
Hut as the Chinese proverb hns It:
“The annihilation of one generation
ha» proved the salvation of others."
and for many centuries the great wall
served tta purpose well.
Disappointment generally awaits
the mortal who has heard much
about some celebrated object and
does visit It; so seldom does the
reality come up to expectation Hut
the great wall la not overrated Be-
hold It by starlight or moonlight,
gaxe on it In twilight or In sunlight;
view it through the haze of a dust
fog, or the spindrift of a rain shower,
or between the flakes of a snowstorm,
ever Is the wall one great, gray,
gaunt, allll specter of the past, crest-
ing the mountain peak or reposing in
the shady valley. So vast la It that
perhaps alone of all man's handiwork
It could be discerned from the moon.
Bo vast Is It that were Its materials
disposed around the earth at the
equator they would provide a wall
eight feet high and three feet thick.
When we reflect on the labor need-
ed to erect it we slowly divine the
toll exacted from countless thou-
sands. the sweat and tears and blood
that must have been shed and wo are
prepared to henr that after two mil-
lennia the name of Che Is cursed all
along the wall by the descendants of
those who were driven to the hateful
task, who labored In deathly fear lest
when flesh and blood failed to re-
tvond to the taskmaster's scourge,

the mass of concrete to provide more
material for the all devouring mon-

“When my boy waa about three
months old hla head broke out with a
rash which waa very Itchy and ran a
watery fluid. We tried everything we
rould hut be got worse all the time,
till it spread to his arms, legs and
then to bis entire body. He got ao
bad that be came near dying. The
rash would itch ao that he would
scratch till tbe blood ran, and a thin
yellowish stuff would be all over his
pillow in tbe morning. I had to put
mittens on his hands to prevent him
tearing hla skin. He was so weak
and run down that be took fainting
spells as if be were dying. He was
almost a skeleton and his little hands
were thin like claws.
“He waa bad about eight months
when we tried Cutlcura Remedies. I
had not laid him down In bis cradlR
In tbe daytime for a long while. 1
washed him with Cutlcura Soap and
put on one application of Cutlcura
Ointment and be "was so soothed that
he could sleep. You don't know bow
glad I waa he felt better. It took ona
box of Cutlcura Ointment and pretty
near one cake of Cutlcura Soap to
cure him. I think our boy would have
died but for tbe Cutlcura Remedies
and I shall always remain a firm
friend of them. There has been no
return of the trouble. I shall be glad
to have you publish this true stati

Nat C. Goodwin was talking la New
York about April-fool Jokes.
‘A comedian—call him Smith—” he
began, “was to attend a dinner party.
»s it happened, on the first of April,
and so thought he would do a little
April fooling. He went to one of those
slavish admirers that all actors have,
and he said to thle young man:
" '1 am dining at Brown’s tonight
and I want to fool tbe party with
some taka ventriloquism. So 111 ask
you to climb np on Brown's roof—I'll
have a ladder ready—and when 1 talk
to you you’ll answer down the China
“ ‘Sura!* said the humble admirer
“And ao, that evening between the
courses of the dinner. Smith did some
ventriloquist stunts of Incredible ex-
cellence. ’Hello, hello!’ he would call
up the chimney, and then, while he
drank a glass of wine, a faint voice
from the roof would answer: ’Hello
yourself and aea how you like It!’
“Once, after calling up the chim
ney: ‘How’s the weather up thereT
Smith actually began a conversation
with the lady, and yet. In the midst of
this conversation, the voles from
above replied: ‘It looks a lot like
rain, and I’m getting tired of my Job.'
“ 'Well, then, good night,’ aaid
Smith, and. a moment later, the party
retired to the smoking-room.
“Smith’s good-night’ had been the
concerted signal for hla confederate
to descend, but Smith’s April-fool Joke
cut. alaa! two ways, and when the
poor confederate went to climb down,
he found the ladder gone. Somehow,
then, he managed to follow Smith
from the dining-room to the smoking
room chimney, and then ha called
” 'Smith. Smith, for goodness’ sake
let me down! It’s cold and I'm tired
and chilled and wet.'
“Smith thought the game was up.
bnt to his delight his friends shouted
and clapped. They thought this an-
other exhibition of hla ventriloqulal
skill. The poor confederate's com-
plaints were greeted with hearty
laughter and applause.
“In fact, the host himself, half an
hour later, called Jovially up the
" ’Still there, rid man T
“ 'Oh, go to biases!’ cams an angry
shout in reply, and a brick flung down
the chimney destroyed the firs and
the April-fool Joke simultaneously.’
“I felt tired all the time and could
not sleep nights. After taking Hood's
Baras pa tills a little while I could
sleep well and the tired feeling had
gone. This great medicine has also
cured ms of scrofula, which had
troubled ms from childhood." Mrs.
