What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
• Tin LUMP CITY MINER: LUM,CITY, MONTANA. • • A PECULIAR CASE. PHYSICIANS PUZZLED BY THE EXPERIENCE OF MRS. BOWEN. The Episcopal Hospital Said She 4.01/11Unaption. (From the Record, Philadelphia, Pa.) Last July the Episcopal hospital ads tattled a v, omen whose pale and emeriti - tiled face and racking cough proclaimed her the victim of consumption. She sfave her name as Mts Wm. II owen, residence. 1849 Meighan St., etilladelphia. The case was diag- nosed and she was told plainly that she was in an advanced state of con- sumption. The examining physician even showed her the sunken place in her breast where the cavity In her lung was supposed to exist. She went home te bier family, a broken, disheartened wont - an with death staring her in the face. That was the beginning of the story, the end as told. by Mrs. Bowen, who no longer expects to die, to a reporter fol- lows: \The first symptoms of consumption came in the form of terrible sweats, night and day. From April until September I was constantly cold and kept wrapped up in blankets through the hottest weather. A terrible cougt took possesesion of me, my breast was sore to the slightest touch. and my limbs were like cold clay. The hardest rubbing with the coarsest towel would not create the slightest flush, and the least exertion would exhaust me. \I went to the hospital in July and they diagnosed my case as above stat- ed. It was when the clouds were the darkest that the first glint of sunshine came. Mr. Shelmerdine. a friend, who lives around at 1844 Clementine St., said to roe one day, Mrs. Bowen did you ever try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. I had never heard of the medi- cine, but in my condition could not turn a deaf ear to anything that offered re- lief. It was after considerable thought and investigation that L concluded to discontinue all other medicine. in- cluding cod liver oil, and depend entirely upon Pink Pills. I began to take the pills, at first with but little en- couragement. The first sign of improve- ment was a warmth and tingling sen- sation in my limbs. Finally the cough disappeared, my chest lost as soreness and I began to gain flesh until I was fifteen pounds heavier. All this I owe to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I cannot praise them too highly.\ Mrs. Bowen is a kindly faced lady of middle age; a church member, well- known and highly esteemed. She looks »day well and strong and it seems al- most Impossible that she was ever given up by eminent physicians as an th - Curable consumptive. Yet such is the case beyond all dispute. , Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain all the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They are for sale by all druggists, or may be had by mail from Dr. Williams' Med. Co., Schenec- tady, N. Y., for 50e. per box, or six boxes for $2.50. lia as .-.Inatent-31inded. -I have a literary friend who is so absent-minded that when he went to Lennon recently he telegraphed himself ahead to wait for him at a certain place.\ \Did the telegram have the desired result?\ -No; he got it all right, but he had forgotten to sign his name, and not knowing who it was from, ho paid no attention to it. --Pearson'a Weekly.

George Vanderbilt's favorite coun- try residence is within a few mima of Asheville, N. C., on a spur of the 1311m Mountains. His new home, which has been building for four years or more, is now practically completed. The house is all imposing Gothic structure of Indiana sandstone. It Is the most impressive and commanding of the many residences belonging to the Van- derbilts. The mansion is not long and low and rambling as 1110St southern dwel- lings are. Instead, it rises to the height of four stories, not counting the lower floor where domestic work is done, or the story next to the roof. But it is broad and long and impressive. Mr. Vanderbilt was largely his own archi- tect, and the result would indicate that he is not a bad one. He has been cour- ageous enough to borrow literally from others, but mainly from Switzerland, for the house as seen from a distance resembles an Alpine chateau. The massive mountains near by add to this impression. The halls in it are as wide and lofty as those in the old houses in England. There are no small rooms. The dining halls are immense. There are no less than fifty guest chambers. an indication that Mr. Vanderbilt does not intend to be a hermit in his moun- tain home.' There are several large rooms evidently intended to be recep- tion -rooms, and there is a huge ball- room looking out upon the mountains, showing a most romantic scene by light. The baths are of marble, mined from the mountains near by, and the whole interior is rich in appearance and arrangement. The stables at a dis- tance alone are finer than many mod- ern houses, and the kennels—for there is yet game in these mountains—are On a plane with the other buildings. Withal there is nothing glaring or garish about all this. Many modern houses would look ridiculous in the midst of the %mild mountain scenery, but Mr. Vanderbilt has been fortunate enough to bring about harmony and to make his splendid home appear a nat- ural part of the scene presented. No one but Mr. Vanderbilt himself knows what all this has cost him. The amount is small compared with what it would have been had the estate been in the north. Land in western North Carolina when Vanderbilt purchased was ridiculously low. So were all sorts of ordinary labor, for skilled labor had to come from the north at northern rates of wages. But the building ma- terial was right at hand to be cut or mined, and nature herself had been the surveyor and landscape gardener as well. From his library window Mr. Van- derbilt can see the Blue Ridge, the Alleghenies and their tributary moun- tain ranges rising and stretching away in the distance. He can see Mount Pis- gah raising its pine- lad head more than 6,000 feet above the plateau. Black Dome, Clingman's Dome, Mitch- ell's Peak, and a score or more of giants are near by. Between these, like silver threads, run the French Broad, the Hiawassee and near half a dozen other rivers. He may see if he wishes the spots over in the Tennessee mountains that have been made in a way famous by the charming stories of Charles Egbert Craddock. And here and there he may see the cabins of the moonshiners, who think straight and shoot the same way, and are In no man- ner to be regarded as being like the Georgia cracker or the poor white of the lowlands. Mr. Vanderbilt's place contains about 29,000 acres In its immediate grounde or park. Several miles beyond he owns on Mount Pisgah and in its neighbor- hood about 100,000 acres more, Intended for use as a hunting and shooting pre- serve. George Vanderbilt Is the student of the family. He is an ardent lover of books and nature, Is unmarried, is 38 years old, and is worth $1,000,000 for each year of his life.

W hen a Man Illocomes of Age. The question sometimes arises whether a man is entitled to vote at an election held on the day preceding the twenty-first anniversary of his birth. Blackstone, in his commentaries, book 1, page 463, says: \Full age in male or female Is 21 years, which age is com- pleted on the day preceding the anni- versary of a person's birth, who, tll that time, Is an infant, and so styled In law.\ The late Chief Justice Shane wood, in his edition of Blackatone'e Commentaries, quotes Christian's note on the above as follows: \If he Is born on the 16th day of February, 1608, he Is of age to do any legal act on the morning of the 15th of February, 1629, though he may not have lived twenty-- one years by nearly forty-eight hours The reason assigned Is that in law there is no fraction of one day and the act on the first second of the preced- ing day twenty-one years after, then twenty-one years would be complete, and in the law it is the same whether a thing Is done upon one moment of the day or another.\ The same high authority (Sharewood) adds In a note of his own: \A person is of full age the day before the twenty-first anniversary of his birthday.\ flow to Get Rid of Rats.

SPOKE MONKEY LANUUAGE, A Man V. ho 4 onveraed With Them as Far Hack an 1857. In 1i4à7 Jules Richard had occasion to visit a sick friend in a hospital, whore he made the acquaintance of au old official of an institution from the south of France who was •3xceed• ingly fond of animals. Ile claimed also . to be perfectly familiar with the languages of cats and dogs and to speak the language of apes even better than the apes theini.ailvets Jules Richard received this state- ment with an incredulous smile, whereupon the old man, whose pride was evidently touched by such skep- ticism, invited hini to come the no st morning to the zoological garden. 1 met him at the appointed time and place, says Nit'.

This goes on for about a da», ot' untl the new man gets a little confluence, and then he gradually learns the trick of stopping the car so quickly that it will bring the passengers to their feet. In addition to this, he is obliged to gain a sufficient Knowledge of the construction of the motor to be able to repair slight breaks and put in burned -out fuses. It is usually about two weeks before he is com- petiant to take charge of a car alone, and even then he ean learn some- thing more about running one every day. • Many Forma of alacarmil, l'e,r80118 accustomed to see only one form of macaroni on their domestic tables are astonished at the many varieties shown by macaroni deniers.

This retails at ten cents a- pound. There are half a dozen others quite as dis- tinctive. Spring Matos MeTired To Many people Spring and its duties mean an aching head, tired limbs, and throbbing nerves. Just LIS the milder weather comes, the strength begins to wane, and \that tired feeling\ is the complaint of all. The reason for this condition is found in the deficient quality of the blood. During the winter, owing to various causes, the blood becomes loaded with impurities and loses its richness and vitality. Consequently, as soon as the bracing effect of cold air is lost, there is langour and lack of energy. The cure will be found in purifying and enriching the blood. Hood's Sarsaparilla is the greatest and best spring medicine, because it is the greatest and best blood purifier. It overcomes that tired feeling because it makes pure, rich blood. It gives strength to nerves and muscles because it endows the'blood with new powers of nourishment. It creates an appetite, tones and strengthens the stomach and digestive organs, and thus builds up the whole system and prepares it to meet the change to warmer weather. Hood's Sarsaparilla is a medicine upon which you may depend. It is the only true blood purifier promi- nently before the public eye today It has a record of cures unequalled in the history of medicine. It is the medi- cine of 'which so many people write, \Hood's Sarsaparilla does all that it is claimed to do.\ You can take Hood's Sarsaparilla with the confident expectation that it will give you pure blood and renewed health. Take it now.
