The second specimen, gray in color
and resembling ordinary clay, was
composed of materials much like those
in the other except that it contained
no soda and more organic matter.
Crains of line sand were found In the
yellow, but not in the gray specimens.
A search for bacteria gave no re

be assimilated by the eaters of these
substances. The yellow earth came
from the coffee plantations at Ban

is not known. Not a few of the Con

The habit of earth eating prevails
in most tropical lands, and is ?particn
larly widespread among the blacks of
Africa and the natives of the East In

nations it is regarded as a symptom of
a vitiated appetite.

is ocasionally observed in Europe.

The testimony of many travelers in

According to Mr. Ilekmeyer, who is

THE GREATEST OF ALL HERDS.
The Great Band of Elk Winters in the
Lowlands of Jackson's Hole.
The largest herd of wild animals in
the United States, and probably in the
world, is the great band of elk which
winters in the lowlands of Jackson's
Hole district, Wyoming. There are.
at this writing, estimated to be sonic
32,000 head of elk in the band. The
men who have given this estimate are
well-known ranchers and cattlemen, or
cowboys and owners of sheep and
stock ranges. Their estimate comes
pretty close to being a corree: one.
During the severe winters in Wyo
ming, when the elk, driven by the bit
ter cold and heavy snows, approach
almost to their' very doors, they have
unusual opportunities for observing
this great herd of magnificent ani
All the elk in Jackson's Hole dis
trict are carefully protected by the
scattered residents of the country. At
present the herd is under the con
stant surveillance of two deputy game
wardens, while district game wardens
watch the band whenever any portion
of it strays into the district over
which they have authority. In Uic
summer time the herd is widely scat
tered over an extent of country the
radius of which is more than 500 miles,
, embracing a territory of virginal beau
ty and primeval grandeur.
Of those elk which enter Colorado a
large percentage is killed, while the
few which stray into Utah fall ai the
hands of the Uintah Ute 'ndians. The
elk which "?ander too far from home
are not killed in the summer, hut in
the late fall.
By far the larger portion of the
herd which is guarded in the winier in
Jackson's Hole passes the summer in
the timbered heights in the Tetnn,
Gros Ventre, and Shoshone Mountains,
the Big Horn Basin, the Yellowstone
National Park, and even in the free
range near the se tlement of Jackson
itself. One gentleman last summer
counted a herd of 800 elk within two
and a half miles of Jackson.
One on Senator Hoar.
Senator Hoar was the unconscious
hero of an incident which marked the
commencement exercises at the Sta e
University of Iowa. The Senator de
livered his address in a tent, and his
manuscript threatened to blow away.
Col. George IL P.urnett of the Unit
ed States Army borrowed a knife from
the Rev. Dr. (?eorge L. Cady, chap
lain of the university. This, as an im
provised paper weight, the Colonel
placed upon Senator Hoar's manu
script. At the close of a particularly
eloquent period, Mr. Hoar's hand
came in contact with the knife, and
he thrust it into his trousers pocket.
The audience having noticed the inci
dent, burst into laughter. The speak
er said something about the "jester
never seeing the point of a joke." and
proceeded with the address.
Later the Senator was reproached
by Dr. Cyrus Xor.hrop. president of
the University of Minnesota, for
"preaching honesty to the boys ol' Iowa
and then setting them such an exam
ple of misappropriation." Then the af
fair was explained and Senator Hoar
drew forth the "borrowed" knife and
a knife case as well. The latter con
tained an exact duplicate of the instru
ment lie had taken.
Senator Hoar had carried the dupli
cate of the borrowed knife continuous

HIS UNCLE JOB PILLISTER.
His Business Idea had Preponderance j
in Trouting Time. j
"Along about this time o' year," i
said the man with the loud cigar butt,
"I alway think of my Uncle Job fil
lister and the big business head he |
had. The preponderance of the busi
ness idea in my I'ncle Job was great.
I think of it most about this time o'
year because I lived with him on the
farm when I was a boy, and he sai
to me one day:
" 'Absalom. I s'pose you know them
early 'taters is to be planted to-day.
I guess we'd better get at 'em.'
"I know all about that 'tater plant
ing web enouch, but I had just dug
a lot o' tishworins and was all ready to
go down to the creek to try the trout.
So I said:
" 'Yes, Uncle Job. But the trout
are biting tremendous, so folks are
" 'ls that so ' said Uncle Job, bland
ly. 'Well, then, my boy,' I s'pose
you've been digging fishworms?'
" 'Yes, uncle,' said I feeling good.
" 'And you've got your pole and line
al! tixed ready, too, I s'pose?' said he.
"Yes, uncle.' said I, and 1 could just
as good as see myself on the creek
tuat minute and feel the trout biting.
M 'Creek ain't too high, think?' said
'? 'Never was in better shape for
lishing, everybody says,' said I.
'* 'Well.* said Uncle Job. thinking it
over, 'I s'pose ii ain't going to make
much dift'ence if only one of us plants
" 'Not a blt,' said I, 4if lt doesn't
make any difference to you.'
" 'No, it don't,' said Uncle Job. 'No
difference to me, at all. You're sure
you've got worms enough, though, my
boy?' said he.
" 'Oh. plenty,' said I, starling to get
" 'And you're sure the trout are bit
ing good?' said .Uncle Job?*
" "They never bit better!' said I.
"'All right, then,' said Uncle Job.
That being the case, I guess I'll take
the pole and the worms and go down
to the creek and see what luck I'll
have. Yon just go on planting 'taters
is if 1 wasn't heve, and get in as many
is you can. for lt's a good day for
planting.' and he took the worms and
he pole and went fishing.
"I was a little set back, of course,
but I couldn't help but admire the
predonderance of the business idea in
Uncle Job. It wasn't fishing that he
rared so much about. It was the get
ting in of the 'taters, and you will
aotice that he did not make up his
mind to go fishing until he found I
could get alon;: with the planting all
right. So along about this time o'
year I always think of my I.incle Job

Stebbins laid down his napkin with
a nervous hand.
"My dear." said he, "I shall be de
tained at the ellice :o-night."
Mrs. Stebbins glared at him across
the breakfast table.
"You will be home by <5 o'clock, slr,"
she sternly elocuied, looking him right
straight in ihe eye.
Stebbins smoothed out his napkin.
"Now. look here," he remonstrated.
'If I don't work overtime, I shan't be
able to alford you that new hat."
Mrs. Stebbins's face softened.
"Well, then, don't wake the neigh
bor up by singing as you did last
time." she remarked, relentingly.
A Bargain Spoiled.
"A feller offered me a thousand dol
lars fer this calf."
"Why didn't ye take it?"
"I would, only the keeper from th?
asylum come along jest then an* took
che feller away.",
Eyes Hungry Only.
Bobby ate his dinner with so good an
appetite that by the time desert was
on the table he could eat no more.
He sat silent and sorrowful, and look
ed at the dainties on his plate.
"Why don't you eat, darling?" said
"Oh mother," he cried, "because only
