The system of nerves is really the most important part of the human structure. They are like the electric wires which convey electricity from the power house to the machines. While the machines may be marvels of ingenuity, they are utterly useless without this power to keep them in motion. So it is with the various organs of the body. Each has a certain duty to perform, and the degree of perfection obtained is governed by the supply of nerve force conveyed to it by the nerves. A lack of nerve force is felt in that tired, worn-out feeling, inability to sleep, headache, neuralgia, rheumatism, backache, weak heart action, indigestion, stomach trouble, or inactive kidneys and liver. Dr. Miles's Restorative Nervine is a nerve food, a nerve builder that seldom fails to restore life and vigor to the tired, worn-out nerves, and thus gives to every organ of the body the power needed. It is so sure to do this that druggists everywhere guarantee to return the price of the first bottle if it fails to benefit.

The abbe of a parish in the suburbs of Paris is said to have converted himself and his assistant priests into a commercial firm to manufacture chocolate, with the trade-mark, "Our Lady of Work." "In this way," the abbe explains, "we hope to maintain Roman Catholicism in a parish of 40,000 souls, not one of whom has a centime beyond the daily wage for manual toil; not one is able to pay a centime for the Church's services at a marriage or burial."

Another sorrow of the janitor is children, says a writer in the New York Evening Post. Every house swarms with them, and they are utterly undisciplined and unafraid. The American child used to be pointed out as the worst spoiled specimen in the world. This I point of view vanishes when the tenement child is regarded. Of course, the fault lies with the parents, whose ideas of child culture are rudimentary, to put it mildly. Mothers are simply terrorized by their sons, often before the latter are out of the kindergarten. A Jewish woman complained to the kindergartner of a settlement that Izzy, aged four and a half, was driving her crazy with his badness. The kindergartner expressed her incredulity, as Izzy gave her no trouble at all. What did the child do that was so naughty? "Every day comes Izzy when der baby sleeps and says like dot, 'Gimme penny righdt avay, or I makes der baby avake.' Und I have to give der penny. Und sometimes comes Izzy back four times or five times, and makes me give pennies, or he makes avake der baby."

Speaking of Japanese gardens, a re-
cent writer in The Sun, says: "The un-
trained eye may not perceive the skill
with which all of the details are han-

dled, any more than it would discover
the hidden art latent in any other fine
composition, and yet even a glance from
the several points of view will give a
stranger to the country and its art a
vision, not easy to analyze, of a won-
derfully harmonious landscape which
may be presented full size or in minia-
ture. Every detail of grouping by
which trees which contrast in shape and
size shall be placed together in twos or
threes or fives has been studied for cen-
turies, with a resulting art that appears
to be the artlessness of nature." The
skeletons of all these compositions are
the garden stones or rocks. A land-
scape architect will go to any distance to
get the stones he wants. Larger rocks
are often split for convenience in trans-
portation and joined by cement when
they are set in place. Due attention is
given to the size of the rocks in propor-
tion to the garden. Indeed, this prin-
ciple is carried out all through their
work. Especially admirable is the lay-
ing out of artificial brooks, with the
proper pebbles and stepping stones.

For the Human Body in Health and
Disease.

The mention of sulphur will recall to many of us the early days when our mothers and grandmothers gave us our daily dose of sulphur and molasses every spring and fall.

It was the universal spring and fall "blood purifier," tonic and cure-all, and mind you, this old-fashioned remedy was not without merit.

The idea was good, but the remedy was crude and unpalatable, and a large quantity had to be taken to get any effect.

Nowadays we get all the beneficial effects of sulphur in a palatable, concentrated form, so that a single grain is far more effective than a tablespoonful of the crude sulphur.

In recent years, research and experiment have proven that the best sulphur for medicinal use is that obtained from

Calcium (Calcium Sulphide) and sold in drug stores under the name of Stuart's late coated pellets and contain the active Calcium Wafers. They are small chocomedicinal principle of sulphur in a highly concentrated, effective form.

Few people are aware of the value of this form of sulphur in restoring and maintaining bodily vigor and health; sulphur acts directly on the liver, and excretory organs and purifies and enriches the blood by the prompt elimination of waste material.

Our grandmothers knew this when they dosed us with sulphur and molasses every spring and fall, but the crudity and impurity of ordinary flowers of sulphur were often worse than the disease, and cannot compare with the modern concentrated preparations of sulphur, of which Stuart's Calcium Wafers is undoubtedly the best and most widely used.

They are the natural antidote for liver and kidney troubles and cure constipation and purify the blood in a way that often surprises patient and physician alike.

Dr. R. M. Wilkins while experimenting with sulphur remedies soon found that the sulphur from Calcium was superior to any other form. He says: "For liver, kidney and blood troubles, especially when resulting from constipation or malaria, I have been surprised at the results obtained from Stuart's Calcium Wafers. In patients suffering from boils and pimples and even deepseated carbuncles, I have repeatedly seen them dry up and disappear in four or five days, leaving the skin clear and smooth. Although Stuart's Calcium Wafers is a proprietary article, and sold by druggists, and for that reason tabooed by many physicians, yet I know of nothing so safe and reliable for constipation, liver and kidney troubles and especially in all forms of skin disease, as this remedy.'

At any rate people who are tired of and so-called blood pills, cathartics "purifiers," will find in Stuart's Calcium Wafers a far safer, more palatable and effective preparation.

The giving out of church notices has often proved a pitfall for the unwary. "During Lent," said a rector lately, "several preachers will preach on Wednesday evenings; but I need not give their names, as they will be all found hanging up in the porch."

An Irish clergyman, says a writer on clerical blunders in Chambers's Journal, is credited with having concluded a powerful oration in this fashion: "My brethren, let not this world rob you of a peace which it can neither give nor take away." Which is coupled with the remark of a fellow country colleague who, in reasoning with a woman who had lost her faith in Christianity, told her: "Well, you will go to hell, you know; and I shall be very sorry, indeed, to see you there."

Lady Barrow, widow of Sir George Barrow, Bart., died in London on Jan. 10, 1905, at the age of ninety-seven. She was the original of Sir Thomas Lawrence's celebrated portrait of "The Beautiful Miss Croker," now owned by Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan, and was considered a historic personage, as she had lived in five reigns. She was the adopted daughter of John Wilson Croker, known as a politician and author.

PACIFIC COAST WONDERS.

How $100,000 is Being Spent in a Campaign of Enlightenment.

The spending of $100,000 is an interesting event, no matter who spends it or for what aims, but when it is devoted in an almost philanthropic way to the enlightenment of those who seek better health, or new pleasure, or perfect rest, it is indeed worthy of remark.

The Sunset Magazine, that marvellous reflex of Western life, published in San Francisco, recently contracted with N. W. Ayer & Son, the great advertising house of Philadelphia, to spend $100,000 in telling the people of the wonders of that scenic country extending from Los Angeles, Cal., to Portland, Ore., now so easily accessible via THE COAST LINE and SHASTA ROUTE of the Southern Pacific Company.

To convey this message in such a graphic manner that everyone everywhere would have a true mind-picture of the amazing things to be found in this land of perennial sunshine, required all the resources even of N. W. Ayer & Son, a veritable army of photographers, artists and writers, working hand in hand in preparing pages upon pages of interesting material for the great magazines and periodicals. When it was found that even this great space was too limited to tell a tithe of the story, a beautiful book was published for free distribution, containing rare color prints, fine engravings and most vivid pen pictures. "The Road of a Thousand Wonders," is the title of this book, and it is indeed well worthy of the name. Anyone may have this by writing to the distributor, Chas. S. Fee, Passenger Traffic Manager.
