What the lubricant is to the machine
-of iron Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery is to the machine of flesh and
blood. It reduces friction to a minimum
and keeps the great organs in proper
running order. It does this by healing
diseases of the stomach and organs of
digestion and nutrition and increasing
the flow of pure and .healthy blood.
"I used ten bottle of Dr. Pierce' Golden
Medical Discovery and several vials of his
'Pleasant Pellets ' a yefll apfO this spring and
have had no trouble with indigestian since"
writes Mr. W. T. Thompson of Townsend.

ho thankful I am for the relief as T hnd suf-
fered so much and It seemed that the doctors
could do me no good. I R'it down in weight to

Attorney Ocnornl ("irlggs snys that
the iihw building for tho depart ment
of justice crectiil uccording to tho
plans already occi-ptcd will cost half a
million dollars nime tlian was expect-
ed tho total expenditure required be-
ing $lrC0U00. Fortunately the gov-
ernment owns the bite a plot of
ground opposite tho treasury respect-
ing which with its immeiliatd Bur-
rounding; souio very amusing stories
Commodore Roger a generation ago
brought to Washington from Spain
four Andalusian jackasses no ordinary
nnimals be it understood but jack-
asses of high degree and purest line-
age. At that tima such beasts were
greatly wanted for breeding purposes
in this country and the loitgwred
quartette excited a. vast deal of ad-
miration. Henry Clay saw them and
being himself interested in the rear-
irrg of line stock wus.most anxious to
possess one so much so indeed that
he offered as a "swap" a large lot of
land near the corner of Pennsylvania
avenae and Madison place valued to-
day at about $00000. The'commodore
accepted nnd Mr. Clay having thus
acquired title to one of the jackasses
immediately proceeded to lose It over
a gaming table.
This did not end the matter how-
ever for Mr. Clay afterward redeemed
tho jackass and sent it to Kentucky
where it became the progenitor -ot
what is now the most remarkable
strain of mules in the United States.
As for the lot Commodore Eodgers
built on it a dwelling which in later
years obtained the uncheerful designa-
tion of the "House ot Doom" because
of the series of tragedies and misfor-
tunes connected with it.
Between the lot in question and
Pennsylvania avenue was a rectangu-
lar patch making the corner on a
portion of which was put up the build-
ing occupied in later days by the
Freedmen's bank. The rest of the
patch had been held up to the present
time as a government reservation and
beds of pretty flowers in the midst of
a well clipped Jawn have made a
charming bit of park opposite the
grim old treasury. Now however it
has been torn up and the bank build-
ing has been pulled down in order to
erect a large and imposing structure
for which congress last' March appro-
priated $1000000. The edifice is to
be the home of the department of jus-
tice. Henry Clay's loss of tne Andalusian
jackass at the gaming table reminds
one of the remark of Mrs Clay when
somebody asked her if her husband's
gambling habits did not cause her
deep pain. She. laughed as she re-
plied: "Not at all I assure you. He nearly
always wins." ji
Commodore Eodgers' built a house
: on the land which he received from
Mr. Clay in exchange for the jackass.
It was a large and imposing mansion
of brick and ;J9 history from start to
finish was made up of a scries of
tragic occurrences. The commodore
died in it soon after its completion
and then it was Vurned into a fashion-
able boarding house which failed
swamniiiE- the finances of the propri
etress. Next it became the home ofj
the Washington club which included
in its membership Barton Key and
Daniel E. Sickles. It is said that Key
signaled to Mrs. Sickles with a hand-
kerchief from a window of the club;
but anyhow it was directly in front
of the clubhouse that Sickles shot Key-
to death and the latter 'was carried
into the club in a dying condition.
When the civil war broke out the
club went to spiasb and Secretary
Seward pleased the mansion for his
residence. It was there that Seward
and his son Willi three other people
were butchered nearly to death by the
Undeterred by its tragic history
James G. Blaine bought the "House of
Doom" in 1S90 and from that time on
he had nothing hat misfortune. He
lost a daughter and his son Walker
Blaine died in the house. Finally he
himsolf died there and then the man-
sion was torn down to be replaced by
a theater which now occupies the site

lusia. Cincinnati Enquirer.

Siaperatltliina a Ilantlnu Wltcbe
and BelllBsC One's Self to
Interesting stories drawttfrom Iho
folklore of Maryland particularly that
of the western part of the state were
told one night lately by members of
tho Folklore society at their meeting
in Donovan room of Johns Hopkins
university. Mr. Crum w ho is a native
of Frederick county and a graduate
student of Johns Hopkins university
under Prof. Newcomb in the depart-
ment of mathematics contributed a
paper on "Witch Stories and Conjur-
ing." Some of the superstitions he told
of were as follows:
"A Hunting Charm Whenever you
kill a bear deer or turkey dipa num-
ber of bullet patches in the fresh blood
of the animal. You must on no ac-
count give any of these patches away.
When yo'u are out hunting again for the
same kind of game load as follows:
Take a bloody patch well greased
I)lace your bullet on It then cross your-
self and as you push the bullet home
repeat: 'Father Son and Holy Ghost.'
You will certainly bring home game
of the same kind as that whose blood
was on the patch. Do not keep the
patches near your bed or in your sleep-
ing room. The spirits make a noise in
the box where the patches are and will
not let you sleep. The sound is like
a watch ticking but it gets louder and
londer until you cannot sleep.
"Witch KillingIf horses are so bad-
ly bewitched that one dies the fol-
lowing will deprive the witch of her
power. Take the dead horse out into
a field and burn the carcass beside a
tree. First cut a cross in the tree
then drive a nail in at the cross. Now
lake your rifle which must be loaded
with a siLver bullet choose a position
so that the fire Is between you and the
tree and shoot over tfce tire at tne nan.
When you hit the. noil the witch will
lose her power and you cannot miss
with the silver bullet.
"To Sell One's Self to the DevilGo
to the crossroads at midnight alone and
play on the banjo. If you really want
to sell yourself two black dogs will
appear and will dance as' you play.
Then you promise something fearful.
Anyone who thus sold himself was
said to be able to outplay and outdance
"A Method for a Girl to Try Her For-
tunePut an egg to the fire and sit
an hour. The wind will howl and the
dogs bark and the man you are to mar-
ry will come In and turn the egg around.
If the egg bursts you will die (or pos-
sibly my informant adds you will
never marry)." Baltimore Sun.
Ida I winder why old Thlnkman
the inventor wears such long hair?
May His head contains such val-
uable Ideas that they have to be pro-
jected by locks.
"But they are not metal."
"Oh. yes; they are silver locks."
but one thing is neces-
to endless life. That
one thing is Perfect Health. We
wish we had as perfect remedies
for all the ot her ills of humanity
as Orlotfs Russian grippe cough
and cold cure is for all lung and
throat troubles There'd be little
necessity for undertakers.
