But the record proves that even that is only a puny, effeminite apology for lack of individual strength. It is what the Magee Ranges have done that determines their character, their cooking ability and their worth. Consult the record. The record is history. It is fact, It covers a period of over fifty years devoted to making the best cooking range. The Magee still holds the record in bread baking. Here are the figures: 310 loaves of bread baked in one Magee range in 6 hours, 28 minutes; only 18£ pounds of coal consumed. The record is incontesti-ble— so is the moral. No other range ever approached such a record. And surely this ought to convince every intending purchaser that the Magee is the range for family use. . William Mulligan Block, Thompsonville, Conn.

A. T. LORD, Itoin street, Thompson vibe, "Some one to see you, ma'am." To a clergyman's wife this ever-recurring state of affairs usually suggests somebody's wants and somebody's woes. A man was standing in the hall, dripping with rain, thinly dressed and hungry-looking. The only difference between him and the average ''man who wants help" was that this one had a pulpy hat held tight over his heart, and bowed to the ground as I went toward him. The pulpy hat was ordinary. It was only the position of it that was odd. "I have come, dear madam," he said, with a very slight accent, "to ask that you will befriend me. I am Alsatian by birth. I sneak English. French. German." lsen," en he continued, "was a Swede, Swedish, also." I wanted to suggest that relating one's biography when drenched was not con ducive to well being, but he did not think soT evidently. "I am, dear madam," he went on, "an orphan and a pharmacist. 1 graduated from the pharmaceutical college in Paris. I came to America, thinking that-with little trouble I could get the place of a professor in an American pharmaceutical college. The places, madam, are too few, so I took places as butler. 1 do, not mind sinking so low beneath my calling. I will do anything honorable. Am I right, madam?" I assented, pleased with so excellent a view of life in a man evidently so well educated. "Do yon need a butler, madam?" There was nothing I wanted less, but 1 broke it to him as gently as possible. "Then would you find me a place, I have no money, no home. I have nothing, nothing." The tears ran down his face, making him look even damper than the rains of heaven had already done. "Why don't £ou go to the mission?" I said. "They will take care of you there for the night and will help you to get a place somewhere, I'm sure. "No, no," he said, quickly, "oh, madam, I could not trespass on the good cur6 at the mission any longer. He has helped me, and now I must work. Work is all I crave. Oh, dear madam, you, I know, speak French, so I will tell you my heartache in that more familiar tongue," which h e d i d . • ' I replied in the, to me, unfamiliar tongue, and he called upon heaven to witness my accent unsurpassed, my choice use of idiom, my fluency, my grace of expression. "How gladly would I serve you, madam, if you only needed a butler." The conversation in French ended by my giving him fifty cents, in American, and he departed, blessing me as he went out in the rain. Poor soul," I said, as I went back to the fire. "I am thankful that he has enough to keep him out of the cold and the rain That man is ah impostor," said my husband, who had overheard part of the conversation. "He imposed upon you because he praised your very unpraise-worthy Frenoh." As this remark could be put down to that which an Englishwoman calls "the brutal frankness of a relation," 1 paid no attention to it. Remembering his honest face, his evident poverty and his nice appreciation of that which was worthy, as 1 heard the wind and rain dash against the window, I rejoiced again that the poor soul had a shelter for the night He oame again the next week. "Nothing to do, dear madam, nothing to do. No work. No plaoe^S Tell me, please,' what can I do?" 1 gavebim the names of several friends, SAYS HE WAS TORTORKD.—"I suffered Such pain from corns Icould hardly walk," writes H Robinson, Hillsborough, HI., ' but Buoklen's Arnica Salve completely cuurreedd them. ." Aots like magioon sprains, bruises,outs,sores,8cald8,buiTQ8,boil8, ulcers. Perfect healer of skin diseases and piles. Cure guaranteed at £ N Smith's whom he went to interview, walking rapidly, evidently, as he returned very quickly. "No, madam, they were all supplied with butlers. They had no need of me. Nobody has." I felt discouraged about bis finding a place, as no one seemed to need the services of a butler at that timtf. I could think of nothing better than to give him another fifty cents, which was followed by a burst of praise for my goodness, and, too, for my beautiful French, and so my friend, the butler, edged away. A few days later he came "just for a little talk with madam, if madam kindly allows. If some one would adwance" (the consonant v always brought out his foreign -views of pronunciation), "the money for me to go to New York, I am sure that through the excellent cur6 there I could get a good place. He knows many people who employ butlers, and madam, he may know of a place in the pharmaceutical work. I long to work, I long to get a place." I asked if he had any friends in town who could help him. "No," he said. A kind minister once helped him, and his cousin, Achfeldt, a cutter at Fitter's, the tailor, had been kind to him. "I cannot go to them again. They could not adwance the money for me to go to New York." Tears stood in his eyes, so I reached no other conclusion than to give him fifty cents and received his customary commendations. The next evening I was dressing for a dinner with friends when the maid announced: "A man to see you, madam, and I think it's the same one that came so often for help." This was a little too much, coming two evenings in succession. I could not support the man, so I sent word that he must go to the mission. During dinner his unhappy, sad face haunted me, and I resolved to do something radical the next day. I first went to see the "kind minister," and found, as well as I could understand the matter, that my friend, the butler, had borrowed $1 from him "to buy out a drug store in Newark," promising to return the money if he did not succeed. The butler had but the dollar had not, which I cbqld forgive in the face of such cruel poverty: He probably found that drug stores ba,d gone up in value. Then I went to the mission. The best advice- seemed to be that he should be taken tp New York. The next morning he met me at the train, looking so neat, with hiqjghabby clothes well brushed and his pUflH^t straightened out and placed whejeh^seemej^owear muchaWie alaoiini^ieai Whenl h^ saw me he made an Alsatian bow, sqjteed my satchel and those of all back on a freight car and was here at six o'clock this morning." Feeling that "Cousin Achfeldt" was a presser and finisher indeed, so far as I was concerned, I said nothing after the monologue and went home very poor in my own esteem. A month later I saw my friend, the butler. He was carrying a piece of stovepipe, which suggested the thought that he had probably borrowed another dollar and bought out a plumber's establishment. When he saw me, he pressed the Stovepipe close to his face and dashed past me. A GOOD COUGH MEDICINE —I find Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is an excellent medicine. I have been suffering from a severe cough for the last two months, and it has effected a cure. I have great pleasure in recommending it. —W C Wockner. This is the opinion of our oldest and most respected residents and has been voluntarily given in good faith that others may try the remedy and be benefited, as was Mr. Wockner.

He sat in front of us. Mrs. Jones sat with me. As I realized how thin he loojfced I drew a quarter from my pocket-b< 4ok, thinking I should give it him for his car fare. "Look at his clothes," said Mrs. Jones; "they are as thin as mosquito netting." Then I slipped tue quarter back and took out fifty cento, feeling ashamed to think I had forgotten that he would have no money for food. He sighed just then, and turning round, said, "It's most kind of you to adwance the money for this ticket. I'll "OASOARETS do an claimed for th«m _ . , and are a truly wonderful medicine.

(Bsnson's Plaster la Pain's Master.) Wh«n Mavdole was told that he made "a -etty good hammer," he said, ' 'No, I don't make a 'pretty good hammer,' I make the best hammer that ever was made." Every carpenter who saw a Maydole hammer wasted one. It was of the best m«- terial, perfeotly balanced, and the head never flew off. Hammers were divided into two classes—1st, Maydole's; 2d, all the rest. Plasters are separated by the same line ®f cleavage; 1st, Benson's Porous Plaster; 2d, all the rest. When, for rheumatic pain, a cold, a cough, kidney trouble or any other disease or ailment tnat may be treated externally, jou ask for a .plaster, any hoiu S Jfrgl. son's. Hd know it is incommppaarraabbllyy the best, and he assumes that you know it too. As the name of Maydole stood for hammers the name of Benson stands for plasters— the "real thing." All the medioinal potencies that are valuable in a plaster are in Benson's. Capsicum, Strengthening and Belladonna plasters are out of date. An army of physicians and druggists, and millions of the people, have written of Benson's Plasters as a remedy to be trusted, Benson's Plasters have fifty-five highett award*. Aocept no substitute.

BAD BLOOD and I opened my pocketbook and took out the rejected quarter, feeling that the poor man would need at least seventy-five cents. Just before we reached the tunnel Mrs. Jones said: "Look at his ears I They are positively transparent. I think he is half starved." I put all the silver back in my pocketbook and took 'out a dollar bill. When we parted I pressed it into his thin hand. "Madam, my sainted mother is with the angels. Heaven grant that she may know I have found another mother in you," he said, promising to write as soon as he found a place, "which may not be before night, dear madam." He departed, backing away from me, still wearing his hat on his heart. How he felt I never knew, but I had an inward glow of conscious rectitude because I had helped one fellow mortal toward success. "His trunk," said Mrs. Jones, "I never saw his trunk." I had not, either, so, supposing he had forgotten it, I determined to interview his "Cousin Achfeldt," the cutter at Fitter's, the tailor. The next day I went to see if I could hear of the trunk and asked the tailor if he had a cutter by the name of Achfeldt. "No," he said, "we have po cutter by that name." While I was puzzling over this the man said; "We have a presser and finisher by that name. Could you mean him?" T My confidence^ for ttie first tiihe shaken in my friend, the butler, by my failure to find "Cousin Achfeldt," returned as the 'presser and finisher" appeared. "I called," I said, "to ask if you know where your cousin, Otto Ulsen—" I got no further. "Cousin,"he said, "cousin! He is no cousin mit me. No, sir; he is not even a cousin mit my wife. No, sir..
