story. Some timo ago a groat
many of tho American soldiers
wero soizod with violout bilious
trouble. Tho writer of tho loiters
was sick for ten days, and said it
was from a ration of mutton. A
quantity of Australian mnlton
bought nt Hongkong has boen
sorved out to the soldiers jost ho
fore tho outbreak of sickness. Tho
conviction was that tho mutton
bad acquired n poisonous taint,
nud thoro was oven a suspicion
that it had been stealthily poison
ed by an enemy.
Numbers of tho soldiers woro
sporting Spanish uniforms pinked
up in tho campaign. This caused
a good deal of nmusomont.
When smallpox appeared, the
camps wero closed from 11 to 3
o'clock every day.

tho guardianship of tho parson,

that tho ward is addicted to exces

estate would soon bo dissipated.

Magoon ns guardian is concerned,"
tho Court says, ''no cause has
