MEDICINE lN THE ANDE.
Peculiar Properties of the Herbs the
Indian Doctors Use.
An interesting character, frequently
met wita in the A:ndes, is the -calla
guayas, or Indian doctor. He is every
where and Is trader, tinker, peddler, I
fortune teller, conjurer and magician.
His knowledge of botany is as mys
terious as it'is comprehensive, and the
'most astonishing stories are told of his
A man In Lima was lying it the
point of death with a disease iwhich
bailed physicians who brought diplo
mas from Le medical schools of Paris
and Vienna. One evening two of the
physicians sto3d talking of the case at
the sick man's door, without noticing
a humble, barefooted Indian who lean
ed against-the wall. As they departed
the Indian entered the patio and asked
to see the sick man. The family rq
ferred him to the attending dcctor,
who, amazed at his audacity, exclaim
"What do you know about a disease
that puzzles the best physicians in
"I have herbs that will cure every
thing," said the callaguayas.
The doctor smiled in scorn and turn
ed away. The Indian opened his pack,
-took from a paper a single leaf and
handed it to the physician, asking him
to smell It. He did so, and instantly
his nose began to bleed, and he was
unable to stop it.
The Indian stood stolidly by for a
time, then handed him another leaf,
saying, "Smell that and the bleeding
, The result was what he promised.
and the physician was interested. In
the end the callaguayas saw the sick
mal. le selected herbs from his stock,
brewed a tea and gave it to the patient,
and - the sick: man recovered. - "Be

A Marvel of Science.
During a- visit -to the south with an
eclipse expedition some years ago an
eminent American professor met an old
negro servant whose duty it was to
look after the chickens of the establish-.
ment where he was staying. The day
before the eclipse took place the pro
fessor in an idle moment called the old
man to him and said. "Sam, if tomor
row morning at 11 o'clcek you watch
your chickens you will find they will all
go to roost,"
Sam wns skeptical. of course, b'ut
when .at the appointed time next day
the sun in the heavens was darkened
and the chickens retired to roost the
egros astonishment knew no bounds.
e approached the professor in awed
wonder. "'Massa," he asked. "how long
ago did you know dat dem chickens
would go to roost?"
"Oh, a long time," said the professor
"Did' you know a year ago, massa?"
"Then dat beats de debil!1" exclaimed
the astonished old man. "Dem chick
ens weren't hatched a year ago!"
K No Laundries In China.
"It's the funniest thing to me," said
an old sea captain who for many years
was in the China trade, "'that nine out
of every ten Chinamen who come to
this country open laundries and engage
in a business which does not exist in
their native land.
"As every one knows, the Chinese at
tme wear soft cotton and woolen gar
ments, according to- the season, and
there Is not a pound of starch in all
China. Stiffly starched clothes are un
known, and the Chinese men do not
do the washing as they do in this coun
try. Neither is there any regular laun
dry in the Flowery ingdom. There
fore it is more than passing strange
that Chinamen should all come to
America and engage in a trade so for
eign to their home industries."-Balti
Disguised Hands Always Bad.
"Here is a truth," says a handwrit
ing expert in the Philadelphia Record.
"that Is as widespread as.the ether: A
disguised hand always tries to be poor
er than the real hand. That axiom is
a great help to us experts. For in
stance, when a letter done in a dis
guised hand is brought to us we al
ways know that the writer of the let
ter is-In a higher station than the hand
-would lead us'to infer; hence in our
detective work we are able to save
much valuable time by eliminating all
persons socially below the appearance
of the letter and concentrating our at
tention on those only who are above
Horace Vernet is the best example
of visual memory. He could paint a
striking portrait of a man, life size, aft

Afozart had a great musical memory.
Baving heard twIdIe the "Miserere" In
the Sistine chapel, he wrote dowvn the

engposition of other masters without
ever skipping a note.

Greek Story of the First Woraan.
The first woman created, according
to heathen Greek mythology, was Pan
dora. She was made of clay by Vul
can, at the request of Jupiter. who
wished to punish the impiety of Pro
metheus by giving him a wife. When
this woman of clay had received life,
all the gods vied making her presents.
Venus g'ave her beauty, the Graces
gave her the power of captivating,
Apollo tanght her music, Mercury in
9tructed her in eloquence and Minerva
gave 'her the most splendid ornaments.
From these presents received from the
gods the woman was called Pandora,
which intimates that she had received
every necessary gift.
Prometheus was too artful to marry
this woman and could not be capti
vated by her charms, but his brother,
Epimetheus, who was not so prudent
married her Instead, and upon openlrg
a box which -he presented to him there
issued from it a multitude of evils,
which dispersed themselves over the
world land still continue to afflict the
human race. Hore only remained at
the bottom to as.-uage the troubles and
sorrows of life.

Numerous stories are told of the ori
gin of the women's society called Soro
sis. One of the best Is that on the oc
casion of a certain banquet here in hon
or of a foreign dignitary women were
rigorously excluded. They banded to
gether to form a club of their own.
Each called herself a' "sorry sis," and
by extension the name of the organiza
tion became Sorosis. It is believed that
the word comes from the L.atin "soror,"
a sister. There Is a fruit genus called
sorosis. but it is uot much like a wom
an. "Sorrow-sis" would be a bad guess.
One smart chap believes the word is a

General Phil Sheridan was at one
time asked at what little incident did
he laugh the most.
"Well," he said. "I do not know, but
I always laugh when I think of the

riding down the line one day when I
saw an Irishman mounted 'on' a mule
which was kIcking its legs rather free
