truth trudges along with lagging

To possess information is an im-

Of all the monopolists the one
we most detest is he who monopo-

from getting in our word.
At last we have something to be
really thankful for. Fashion has
decreed that the ‘-rampant rat”

SOLVES A DEEP MYSTERY
“I want to thank you from the
bottom of my heart,” wrote 0. B.
Rader of Lewisburg, W. Ya., “for
the wonderful double benefit \ got
from Electric Bitters, in curing
me of both a severe case of stom-
ach trouble and of rheumatism,
from which I had been an almost
helpless sufferer for ten years. It
suited my case as though made
just for me.” For dyspepsia, in-
digestion, jaundice and to rid the
system of kidney poisons that cause
rheumatism, Electric Bitters has
no equal. Try them. Every bottle
is guaranteed to satisfy. Only

The Tourist on Tour.
Till we have been accustomed to
traveling we have a propensity to
stare at and admire everything—and
to be on the search for novelty, even
in circumstances in which it is ridic-
ulous tojook for it. I have been upon
the full silly gape to And out things
that I had not found before, as if a
street in Paris could be composed of
anything but houses, or houses formed
of anything but brick or stone—or
that the people tn them, not being
English, would be walking on their
heads. I shall shake off this folly as
fast as I can, and bend my attention
to mark the character and disposition
of the nation. Such views naturally
lead us to catch the little circum-
stances which sometimes express
them; not an easy task, but subject
to many errors.—Arthur Young,
"Travels in France, 1787.”
Giant Among Cabbages.
A young restaurant was brought in-
to this city city a few days ago in the
form of a cabbage that is a giant in
its class. And there is some class
to it, as it fills the top of a good-sized
table and would make a meal for 20
families. The monster is full three
feet in height and weighs nearly 30
pounds. It was raised in the garden
of Albert Todesce, of Roslindale.
The seed that this cabbage came
from has heretofore never been guilty
if any such conduct and has been sat-
isfied to bring forth ordinary editions
of the vegetable that is commonly em-
braced with the name of corned beef.
