Svice across Death Yalley
To Save His Life.
Gol.ificld (Nev.). August 1. To an
most superhuman effort and pow-
s of endurance greatly beyond the
erage man, H. V. Boyer, a Gold
Id miner, owes his escape from the
eacheries of Death Valley. With
s obituary published in the papers
Bullfrog, Boyer succeeded in cross
gand recrossing the valley without
od or water, suffering on his eighty -
ve miie tramp every hardship that
uld be iiragined. He left Green
aler early in the month. Climb
g the high range of mountains on
ne east cf the valley with a view to
etermiuing his bearings and the
irection to the Furnace Creek
anch, he started for the plain where
e epected to encounter' a road.
his, however, he missed and, bo
oming lost, he started across the
alley, thinking he saw some foliage
nithe farther foothills. Through the
og and slime of earth saturated
vim aiKau and oorax, uoyer maue
low progress, his path being fi a
juently blocked by cakes of mud that
md been curled and twisted by the
intense heat to a height of from three
to five feet. In other places he nar
rowly missed being enmeshed in the
mire, upon two occasions saving
himself only by throwing his leather
coat down Ahead of his body and
scrambling on it to free his boots
from the clinging mud. Reaching
the farther side of the valley, he sup,
ceeded in determining his bearings
from the better perspective gained
of the eastern range of the moun
tains. With undaunted determina
tion he started across .the desolate
reach of waste, reaching the Furnace
Creek ranch on the afternoon of the
third day. When Uoyer struggled
into the ranch he was carefully cared
for. Ho was in a condition border
ing on complete exhaustion and de
mentia, his tongue swollen o that he
could not articiiluts and his clothes
torn almost in shreds from the trip.
Emperor Accused Of

Beilin, August 4. The Kaiser's

of his people, is the subject of some

Something In A Name.
"What is your full name?" asked
Clerk Simonton, in the usual formal
manner of a court clerk addressing a
witness just sworn, says the Star.
"Kaikinakaoililikea o Lonoikaiua
kahikikapuokalani," said the witness
without a tremor.
. Simonton for some reason or other
wanted it again. He is not hard of
hearing, nor slow in making court
minutes, but for some mysterious
motive lie asked the witness to say
it again, and try to say it slow.
The:-, with deliberation, the wit
ness repeated his unearthly name.
"Kaikinakaoililikea o Lonoikaina
kahikikapuokalani," said the witness
in unmistakeable answer, and of
course any competent clerk ought to
have been able to get it on the jump,
bi t Simonton couldn't.
He wondered why the "o" was put
in to spoil the continuity.
However, thii name was liually re
gisterod and the taking of ttie testi
inony of the witness vl o owned it
proceeded with, before Judge Robin
son, lu the matter of the Kuniakea
Honolulu, T. H.
estate. The estate does not amount
to over a thousand dollar?, but there
is nearly a score of claimants, rnd
they ere having a lively time in prov
ing ancient Hawaiian family connec
tions in order to prove their various
rights as heirs and heiresses.
The witness whose awful name in
terrupted the proceedings, and which
all concerned are forced to stop now
and then in the argument and pro
nounce "Kaikinahaoililikea o Lonoi
kainakahikikapuokalam," is the fath
er of the Rev. Manasse.
He is quito an important witness
in the case, and after his name was
once thoroughly settled, he gave his
evidence without further pilikta.
Boa Constrictor Seen
In Alexander Yalley.
Santa Rosa, August 4. The ap
pearance again on the Alexander
ranch in Alexander valley of a huge
reptilo, believed by many to be a boa
constrictor that escaped from a tra
veling circus many years ago, has
excited Jmucli interest. Some days
ago a horse driven by some women
took fright at the big snakeand ran
away. J. Alexander, who (owns the
ranch has known of the reptile's pre
sence oj the place for almost thirty
years and that years ago hunters
tried to locate the monster. Some
how the snake kept out of sight when
the chase was on. The women at
first saw what they thought was a
big piece ot stick moving. Their
horse snorted and dashed away.
There is t o doubt that It was the
constrictor. Years ago traveling
circuses passed the ranch.
Bovine Bacilli As
Washington, July 21. A vaccine,
which it is thought will render humen
ity immune from the white terror
has been discovered by physicians
identified with the French Academy
of Sciences. By treating infants
with a very small quantity of tuber
culosis bacilli of human and bovine
origin a few days after birth,it is de
clared they will be guarded against
natural infection through life.
United States Consul W. P. At
well of Bcboix has sent to this gov
ernment a report of the ditcovenes
by Drs." Calmette and Guerin of the
Pasteur institute at Lille.
"Many experiments have demon
strated that tuberculosis bacilli de
stroyed by heat or other agents pass
through the walls of the intestines
as readily as living bacilli and are
found in tne mesenteric ganglions and
lungs," says Dr. Calmette. "Ween
perimented with the objact of discov
ering whether young animals, such
as calves and kids, that had been
made to swallow two doses, the
second forty five days after the first,
of from five to twenty-five grams of
dead bacilli, or bacilli whose virulence
had been modified, could endure with
impunity the injection of a meal of
five centigrams of fresh 'tuberculous
matter taken from a cow, matter
which would be surely Infections un
der ordinary conditions.
"We are now convinced that bo
vine bacilli destroyed by boiling for
five minutes, or simply heated during
the same period, will, for five months
and even for a longer time, to which
it is not now possible to fix a limit,
vaccinate perfectly against virulent
infection through the digestive or

Priest From India
Of Brahmin Caste
San Francisco, August 9. There
arrived in San Francisco a day or so
ago a small brown gentleman who
once livr d one hundred and twenty
days on one hundred and twenty
banaras nnd meanwhile did all his
sleeping without lying down, without,
indeed, sitting down. The small brown
gentleman with this record is not a
fanatic about anything, either. At
nil events he snys he is not. His name
is Swami Prakashananda, which in
Sanscript for Teacher of the Joy of
Enlightenment. The reason for his
coining lay in the need of assistance
felt by Swami Trigunatia, leader of
the San Francisco Vedanta Society
in the Hindu Templo at Webster and
Filbert streets. Swami Trigunatia
may be Englished as Teacher of the
Tl roe Attributes Beyond whatever
that is. And both these gentlemen
are monks from the Balur Math of
the Ramkinshna Mission in Cutculta,
The only a'arming things about
either Prakashananda or Trigrnatia
are the tongue twisting names which
they bear. Swami Prakashananda,
for instance, wears clothesas incon
spicuous as any John Smith ever wore,
and basking in the mildness of his
solf brown eyes nobody would imagine
the Indian priest the hero of the
banana story, or easily picture him
walking barefoot, as he once did,
th rough t forests of Bengal, where
"what you call him, the bush, is full
of tiger," a he simply relates.
Prakashananda belongs to the
Brahmin caste of India. He was
educated at CalcuttaJUniversity and
was formerly assistant editor of
"Awakened India," a magazine pub
lished in the Himalayas. II 3 is a
monk, a vegetarian, an expounder of
the Gita. He is forbidden to marry,
drinks only water and believes, among
other things, that one can make
even a cobra ashamed by politeness.
The passenger agent of a Jersey
road says that he chanced to be in
the ticket office at Trenton one day,
when a woman came into the station
for the purpose of buying half-fare
tickets for two children she brought
"How old are your children, ma
dam?" asked the ticket seller.
"Only 6, sir."
"Both of them?"
" fes, sir; they are twins."
The agent smiled. Then, after
eyeing the. younsters with an ex-
pressipn of incredulity, he observed:
"Pretty lads. Where were they
"This one," replied the unwary
mother, "was born in Elizabeth, and
the other in Jersey City."
THE GREETING CUSTOM.
" How do you do?" That's Fnglish
"How do you find yourself?" That's
"How do you stand?" That's Ita
"How doyou find yourself?" That's
"How do you fare?" That's Dutch.
"How can you?" That's Swedish.
"How do you perspire?" Egyptian.
"How is your stomach? Have you
eaten your rice?" That's Chinese.
"How do you ha ye yourself?" That's
"How do you live on?" That's
"May thy shadow never be less?"

by said Judge W. J. Robinson In his
letter to Senator Perkins, touching
and bearing on the land laws of Ha
