authentic rerdls of gialits. ki -Au
u * lin:e, f,>r instance, there were,
accordin1 to the authority of Valerius.
two giants in liome who were over ten
feet high. Their name.s were Idusis
and Secundilla, and they were keepers
of the gates of the gardens of Sallust.
Then - again we have a record in
Pliny of one Polydamus, the son of
Nicas, who was over nine feet high
and 'vhose strength rivaled that of
Hercules himself. Polydamus used, in
fact, to boast his superiority to that
loinan deity and perform his special
tricks. For example, he once slew a
lion with a blow of his fist and scat
tered its brains about the arena. Ie
could with his hand step the swiftest
chariot dead and on one occasion
seized a bull by the hoof in order to
carry it away, but the animal strug
gled so violently that the hoof was left
in his hand. In the end he was killed
by the falliug in of a cave. When his
companions noticed that the roof was
falling they left, but Polydamus was
so vain about his strength that he
thought he could not be killed. So he
stayed and was finally crushed to
deith.
The Emperor Vitelllus sent to Darius
by way of a present a Jew named
Eleazer, who was seven cubits high
that is, reckoning the cubits at eight
een inches, ten feet six inches-and a
giant who is mentioned by the his
torlan Tacitus was over nine feet. Ihis
name was Corbulo, and he lived in
Nero's time and was a more than usu
ally skillful general and soldier, be
sides being an enormously strong man.
An account of the ancient giants
would he incomplete without mention
ing MIaximinus, the imperial giant of
the third century. The most extraor
dinary stories are told of this emperor
of Rome. Ihis height was eight feet
ten inches, he could draw unaided a
loaded wagon which six oxen could
not move, while his appetite was so
great that his usual rations for the
day consisted of forty pounds of meat
and a whole amphora of wine, besides
bread and dried and fresh fruits.
Mcediaevah giants are plentiful, but,
strange to say, the records of them are
not so authentic as those of the times
of the emperors. Funnian, a Scottish
giant who flormrished in 1827, seems to
be the most authentic of these, but as
he is put down as being over eleven
fet hgh the statement should not be
criticiied too closely. Still more star
ting, however, is the following, which
Is vouched for Ly a inoiiastery full of
monks: In 1509 some workmen, dig
ging near Rouen, came across a cave
in which were some human bones and
a copper plate, bearing the words,
"ere lie the remains of the great and
mighty Chevalier Ricon de 'Vallemnont"
rhe skull was large enough to have
held a bushel of wheat and the shin
one was over four feet long. It (the
hone) was preserved by the above men
toned monks, and it was estimated
that the height of the defunct knight
must have exceeded- eighteen feet. A
stranger though somewhat similar
legend comes from Ireland, but in this
case the discoverers thought that they
would, to use an expression popular
some years ago, go "the whole hog or
none." It happened in 1608. Some men
were digging in Ireland when they
came across a brick tomb which con
tained a human skeleton no less than
10 feet long. But there is a "raison
detre" for all these legends. Accord
ig to a German professor, these bones,
which were supposed by ignorant per
sons to be those of human beings, were
probably those of mastodons or some
other fossilized remains which to the
uninitiated would look exactly like
those of a man.-London Standard.
An Amtable Duel.
There was a duel in Edinburgh re
cently between two Italians over a girl
with whiom both1 were smitten. It took
pace at midnight in the presence of a
p~arty of friends. The duelists had but
one revolver and drew lots for the first
:8hot. The winner shot at forty paces
and missed. Then he walked up to his
oponent and politely handed the pis
tol over. When the man had walked
back to his station the second shot was
fred and also missed. So the two men
ushed forward and embraced each
Iother, and the feud ended.

Flue Curing Develops the S
Found In Schnapps that I
There are three ways used by far
mers for curing and preparing their
tobacco for the market; namely, sun
cured, air cured and flue cured. The
old and cheap way is called air cured;
the later discovery and improved way
is called flue cured. In flue-curing
the tobacco is taken from the field
and suspended over intensely hot
flues in houses especially built to re
tain the heat, and there kept in the
proper temperature until this curing
process developes in the tobacco the
stimulating taste and fragrant aroma
found in Schnapps tobacco, just as
green coffee is made fragrant and
stimulating by the roasting process.
Only choice selections of this ripe,
juicy flue cured leaf, grown in the
famous Piedmont country, where the
best tobacco grows, are used in
Schnapps and other Reynolds' brands
of high grade, flue cured tobaccos.

Hundreds of imitation brands are
on sale that look like Schnapps; the
outside of the imitation plugs of to
bacco is flue cured, but the inside is
filled with cheap, flimsy, heavily
.sweetendd air cured tobacco; one
chew of Schnapps will satisfy tobacco
hunger longer than two chews of
such tobacco.
Expert tests prove that this flue
cured tobacco, grown in the famous
Piedmont region, requires and takes
less sweetening than any other kind,
and has a wholesome, stimulating,
satisfying effect on chewers. If the
kind of tobacco you are chewing don't
satisfy, more than the mere habit of
expectorating, stop fooling yourself
and chew Schnapps tobacco.
Schnapps is like the tobacco chew
ers formerly bought costing from 75c.
to $i.oo per pound; Schnapps is sold
at 5oc. per pound in 5c. cuts, strictly
1o and 15 cent plugs.
