Ends Winter's Troubles.
To many, winter is a season of
trouble. The frost, bitten . toes and
fingers, chapped hands and lips,
chilbrains, cold sores, red and
rough skins, prove this'. But such
troubles fly before Bucklen's Arni
ca Salve. A trial convinces. Greatest
healer of burns, boils, piles, ,cuts,

f An Accommodating Man.
"Yon see," said the old farmer as he
measured out the green tomatoes to
the grocer, "I brought along my spade
by accident, but it was a goock thing
I did." ^ \ . ?
""Wagon get stuck In1 the road?' was
"Oh, no! I was coming along about
a mile back when 1^ saw a feller in a
field.' He had ? crooked stick in his
hand, and a little boy with other
crooked sticks was following him
along. The man was knocking a wood
en ball' along the ground.
" 'Hello/ says I as I stopped.

" *HolIng a ball in the ninth.' -
44 TSard work, hain't it?
"Then let me help you a little.
Nothing, mean about me.'
"And I grabbed the-spade, climbed
the fence and clag that ninth hole out
till lt was as big as a bain, and the
feller laid right down and rolled over
and over and laughed so ?raen he
couldn't find words to thank me."
A Great Cannibal Feast
Probably the' biggest cannibal orgy
on record is one of which,Miss Bea
trice Grimshaw tells In "The New
Guinea:" "In 1S5S a shipload of China
men was being taken down to Austra
lia. The vessel was wrecked upon a
reef close to ^Rossel island, New Guin
ea. The officers escaped in boats, but
were never afterward heard of. As
for the Chinamen, numbering 32G, the
natives captured them and put them
on a small barren ?slandr where they
had no food and no means of getting
away. They kept their prisoners sup
plied with food! from the mainland
and every now and then carried away,
a few of them-to eat until all but one
old man had been devoured. This one
succeeded eventually in -fitting away
and told something of the story, which
seems to have met with general disbe
lief. True it Is. however,"on the evi
dence of the sons of those who did the
Imprisonment For Debt
About the middle' of the last cen
tury the power of, imprisoning a debt
or for life was taken from the creditor,
and it fills one with amazement to
think that a system so ridiculous
should have continued as long as it ,
did." The three principal debtors' pris- j
ohs In England were the King's Bench, j
the Marshalsea and the Borough
Compter. In the year 1759 there were
20,000 prisonera.for debt in Great Brit- j
ain and Ireland. The futility of the
system was quite* as great as its bar- 1
barity. More than half the prisoners
ia some of the prisons were kept there
solely because they could not pay the
attorneys' costs. Many prisoners had
their wives and children with them.
There was no infirmary, no resident
surgeon and no bath. Imagine a n/ace
In these days containing 1,399 persons
and no bath and no infirmary! We
