It is now universally conceded that
faulty assimilation is the real cause of
more suffering than any other disease.
Eminent physicians declare that imper
fect digestion is one of the most frequent
causes of anaemia and urge that not
only must we see that there is an ade
quate and suitable supply of food, but
we must also loot to its assimilation.
To overcome unfavorable conditions, it
is necessary to re-enforce nature by sup

TABLETS were placed in the hands of the,

"In all the world ther was no city where
Satanism." the worship of the devil, had
gained so strong a foothold In St. Pierre."
Dramatically lifting his right hand to heav

of the Pompeii of the Western world, far
down the mountain side, Pere Mary, cure
of the little church at Jlorne Rouge, the
"Flower of Martinique." seemed glad that
the city and Its SO.'Ai souls had been de

He was the stern minister of God express

the Divine Being.
For Its exceeding wlckednesf. declared he.
St. Pierre has been swept Into eternity by
a hand of Are. as by the same hand, a mo

of Infinity, the cities of the plain had been
made as If they neier had been.
But an Instant later Pere Mary was the

"Why." he told them, "you can have no

he shuddered "the terrl6te people who

Ho could not even mention the name wltn

and pestilence had begun.
"Gulllaume. In his paper, snld: 'Do as you

powerful, docjn't care."
"Oh. how ray brethren and I have strug

yes! There were many of them In St. Pierre,

wickedness. There were selMenylng. pure

Mora the good cure could not tell his
auditors about the Satanltes. though he had
heard of that Diica Vaugharf. the high

memoirs, in which she exposed the secrets

When the young people of the neighbor

Bertha Smith were married they Immedi

and when the party arrived then so dense
was the crowd that they could hardly vusti

Mrs. Rueckert. the mother of the bride
groom, has become reconciled to the

vent will be celebrated at the home of the
bride In a lavish manner.
Young Hueckert went to work to-day as
usual on his father's delivery wagon.
When asked as to how he managed to
secure the license at Clayton he utated that
he gave his age as E. to the license clerk.
As he Is nearly six feet high, and very
athletic in appearance, weighing close to
ly) tiounds, he can easily pass for the ag
given by him. The bride is li. but she
looks much less, and it required the evi
dence of her brother. Fred, who accom

testimony of his pri-Ulctlon with regard to

Diana Vaughan declares, at the end of

lie translated "First Presiding Devil." His

without this added curse.
Children Killed for Sacrifice.
Another writer, one Jules Blals. of Paris,
has this to say about the Satanlsts:
"The principal among Satan's disciples Is
the woman, or 'sorelcre.' as she Is called.
To her Is delegated the awrul duty of kill
ing the children Intended for sacrifice and
whose blood Is drunk by the fanatics. T.i
her is also given the task, after a certiin
novitiate, of enticing men to Join the order
and enroll themselves under the devil's

Ignomy and the degradation necessary, ac
cording to her testimony, tor other novi
tiates Into the order. It Is difficult to deter
mine from her memoirs. She says she was
spared through the expressed wish of her
father on his deathbed, but In another place
she conveys n contrary Impression.
With herself, she says, will perish the last
of the race of Thomas Vaughan. the Ros
Cro!x alchemist of mediaeval days. Her
uncle has no children and will have none,
and she has consecrated herself to the
