FACTS vs. PREJUDICE
Prejudice; is hard to combat. It cannot be
overcome in a day. More than likely it wasn't
formed hastily. Indeed it may have been
Gradually strengthening its hold for years.
For Instance, some folks believe Rheumatism
cannot be cured. Their fathers believed so
before them. So did their Grandfathers:
Now, RHEUMATISM CAN BE
CURED, notwithstanding this prejudice,
but the trouble is to make people think so.'
The only way we know to meet popular un-
Delict is to state the f LAIN FACTS, ana
then present the POSITIVE PROOFS
that they arc facts. It is a fact that the
RUSSIAN RHEUMATISM CURE
not only relieves but banishes.Rheumatic
Tain. There is positive proof of it too. It
comes from those who have suffered untold
agony with Rheumatism and have been com
pletely cured by tins remedy. All who have
tried it have had this experience. Some of
them permit us to print their testimony. It
makes quite a little book, which wc send free
to any who arc interested enough to ask for it.
A complete Russian Rheumatism Cure,
costs S2.50. If mailed, loc. additional. If
registered, loc.more. You'll never need but

"Tho now tciiarttH havo sent their

glancing casually through a curtalnless
window ot tho dismantled drawing
room, from which a brawny truckman
was just convoying tho last nrliclo of
tnrmturo. "And our things havo all

"You can buy another, I suppose,
was tho indifferent remark of her
young kinswoman a hauihty, showy
young lady, who tood taking a final
and rather lugubrious survey of tho
empty drawing room. "I declare,

concern for tho imminent hysterics.

ner gently noncommittal.
"Wo wero a great doal to each

tho declaration itself. "I think of him

"Thero is something left behind af

as sho abruptly stopped at tho top of
tho steps. "I left my bunch of keys

reaus on tho mantel in my old room !
You must go back instantly I am
quito too much fatigued myself 1 lint
then you wont mind, JUin you will

Minerva turned back without demur;
to bo commanded and to obey had
been her lot for all tho woary yearB
which sho had spent beneath tho shel

"And I may find my keepsake thim
ble after all,"she thought as sho walked
back through the soft, clear suiiBhine,
and again ascended tho steps of tho
old familiar house and so at length
entered tho chamber designated. "I
was using it last in this very room,
aud it may have dropped in some crnv-
ico or other.
Sho had secured tho bunch of keys
from tho mantel, and just then she es
pied a glitter of something amid a pile
of fragmentary papers which had,beeti
deposited in the grate.
Tho clitter was that ot tho missed

Tho penmanship was that of Cyril
Grosvenor, and a letter was within tho
envelope, which was quito intact.
Tho girl trembled trom head to tcct,

Instantly sho divined what had been

"Julia hints you aro but trilling with

startled grasp "that there is a prior

My Dr.Ait Sue : I have just received

I don't think thero ever was a lime
when newspaper lying was so general
and so mean as at present, and there
never was a country under tho sun
where it flourished as it does in this.
Tho falsehoods daily spread before tho
peoplo in our newspapers, whilo they
aro proofs of tho mental ingenuity of
those encaged in newspaper work, are
insults to tho American lovo for de
cency and fair play of which wo boast.
I hasten to reply to your letter that
the allegation contained in tho .blip
you send me, to tho effect that you
ever asked a personal favor of me, is
entirely and utterly false. You have
never in the slightest manner indicated
a wish, claim of preference touching
any appointment to office, or any offic
ial act ot iir.no. and the only occasion
I remember when I ever had any con
versation with you, was during a short
and very friendly call you made upon
mo in Albany, during my term as lov-
eruor. If I over received a letter or
message from you on any subject
have forgotten it a thing I should
not bo apt to do.
Whilo I am sorrv that any friendli

A correspondent to tho Now York
Sun thus writes of the condition of
The present population of Ireland is
almost exactly what it was nt the bo-
ginning of tho century. It was then
about live millions, and rapidly in-
creased until 1811, when it numbered
8,190,000. Then itbegan to'diniinish,
and in 1881 numbered only 5,17-1,000
a loss of a million every decade,
This baro fact is strong presumptive
evidence that tho economic conditions
of tho country nro bad, and at least
largely responsible for tho present con
ilion of things. An J'-nulish guide
book innocently says: "In 181.') the
failure of the potato and consequent
fnmino caused it rapidly to decline
through increased emigration! and
with tho absence of manufactures,
and by changes in tho muthods of ng-
riculturc, the decrease has continual
up to tho present time. It is, after
all, a sort ot conlesion that tho sys
tem is nt lcat partly to blame.
I ho Irish do not moro readily leave
their country than do tho peoplo of
other countries. They ato icadily
much attached to Ireland, nnd thero is
no better proof of this than tho fact
that they alwayB consider it a duty to

almost wholly from England. There
aro immense deposits of iron ore red
hcmililc and bog iron, both in abnnd
ance, tho former in connection with
the coal deposits. In happier days
thero wero at one time very many
small furnaces and iron works here
and there over Ireland, but they are
all gone now. Tho iron wealth of
tho country, too, like tho coal, lies
all undeveloped and unused. The En-
glisli wisely account for this by saying
that thoro is no capital in Ireland with
which to develop its resources. It is
very truo that thero is not much capi-
tal :n the country, but it is also truo
that tho English have always carefully
strangled such Irish industries as
showed tho least signs of vitality, un
less they wero in lines which could
offer no competition with "British in
tciests." Unfortunptcly for Ireland,
these British interests allow the exist
ence of no rival interests, if it is their
power to kill lliein.
In passing through the various towns
of Ireland, except Belfast and a few
other towns in tho north, ono notices
an almost entire absence of manufac
turing industry of any kind. Tho
people say: "Wo formerly had a wool
len mill, or cotton mill, but it is not
running now." It is a story of de
parted glory or prosperity almost ev
erywhere. Tho lack of prosperity is
well shown by tho stationary and of-
ten diminishing population of tho
towns. Cork had 80,000 people in
1801, and did not increase a hundred
in tho lollowtng twenty years, and tho
samo is true of scores of other towns.
Many aro going into actual decay.

houses, three and four stories high.

American fresh beef is about 15 cents

Tho prices of butter, eggs and milk
need not bo mentioned, for tho Irish
poer seldom indulgo in such luxuries,

very fair wages, and this without food
of any kind, as a rulo In tho west

in a few favored towns liko Belfast,
and in theso ono occasionally hears of

man who was going to i-.imiskilleii a
town of nearly (1,000 people, in Ulster,
to work as a coach painter. Uo was

told mo that his wages wero nominally
a pound a weok, but that ho worked
enough overtimo to get 2-t shillings
(i?0) as an average. Ills living cost
him about $51.
But tho lot of farm laborers and
Binall renters is hardest of all. Tho
homes of theso aro usually most miser
able excuses for human habitations.
They aro seldom surrounded by shrub
bery of any kind, and tuiycr by any
fruit trees. Tho only orchards in tlio
country aro small enclosures of hint
trees owned uy tno nouiiuy or wcaitny

I seldom caught sight of an applo or

grow well in Ireland. Tenants on

yearly tenants nro much moro numer

Whilo in Galway I saw the Saturday
maikets. which are attended by tho
country folk for ten or twelve miles
around. Tho markets aro held in the
p0n ajr) Jn squares and open spaces
; tho streets. In ono place, cattle,
horses, sheep and hay wero on sale; in
a SCCond market all kinds of vegetables
wero ot) 8aiP. fiU,l a third market is for
butter, cgs and fowls. Only a few
women attend tho first of theso raar-
kets as sellers: in the second men and
women aro nearly equally divided; and
the women have a monopoly of tho
third. Not less than two hundred
women had articles for sale in the last
named market. In somo cases they
brought their produce by the help of
somo one who camo to one of tho oth
er markets in a cart drawn by a don
key, but in large majority of cases
they trudged to the market on foot,
with their loads on their backs, and
about two-thirds of them camo bare
foot and bonnetless, and in the rain.
Many of them camo ten or twelve
miles to this market every Saturday.
Ono old woman of about GO years told
me that bIio had walked in that morn
ing six miles, nnd that Bho did so every
Saturday morning in tbo year. They
carry their marketing on their backs in
Saturday morning in tbo year,
their marketino on their
a basket held oy a strap over mo
chest. If thoy havo butter and eggs,
their marketing may como lo two or
three dollars; but most of them do not
realizo more than one dollar, and many
of them do not get more than
fifty cents for their day's work and
Ono ot theso market women camo
into a shop to sell her littlo storo of
marketing, which consisted ot four
spring chickens, and nothing moro.
Sho wanted two shillings and sixpence
for tlio four, and the man offnred only
two shillings. As bIio stood tluro try
ing to get her price the water dripped
trom her soaked garments hi iimo
pools on tho lloor. She finally took
two shillings. Sho had trudged theso
many miles that morning in the rain
and got only fifty cents for her chick
ens and her work. Tlm bitter, biting
poverty of tho tillers of tho soil in tho
west ot Ireland was well exniuiiettm
that Galway market. Such annndilion
would be excusable in J'-gypi, i urkey,
or Poland, it may be, but Ireland is n
part of tho United Kingdom, ami is
presumed to bo a part of tho civilized
world. It is inoxoueablo there. This
part of tho country is tho worst part
of tho island.
Near such towns as Belfnst, Cork
and Limerick, tenants pay felO to 20
an aero for good land, and three or
four miles away they pay about halt
as much. Seven or eight miles away
from railways bi anil is more corn-
mon, nnd muoh land is let for even 2
and $3 an acre. There nro immense
tracts ot waste land in ireianu. mostly
peat bogs, and such land as this is
worth very little. About Galway tho
, i. , J.t.- !1 t.t
lanu is rocky anu tno sou very nun,
hut tho land is very high for tho quaj-
ity. Indeed, what are called "fsir
rents" always struck ine as beiug enor-
mous. Tlio landlord has dealt, and is
still dealing, hardly by Ireland, tiiougu
tho rents aro not now bo high as they
wero a fow years ago. I should say
that they aro 'even now twice as high
as thoy ought to bo.
