THE COW TREE
Vegetable Freak Found In Mountain
Regions of Venezuela, ''
t?he mountain region of Venezue
la is the home of ons of the most
..remarkable botanical freaks known
id grow upon the American conti
nent. It is a tree which flourishes
.dn?y upon the mountain eLdes and
..always ot the height of about 8,g00
?feet above gea loveL It is lofty and
blender for its Height end has broad,
stiff ileaves of a dusty white color,
which give it the apgearauce of be
ing alrnost dead, what is queer
about thia tree with, the tall, elender
trunk and dead looking leaves and
branches ? It ? is odd* enough, BUJPO,
for, [ although vit ia ? very stupid
looking forest ijrowth, it is kuow^f
the ! world over aa the "milk" or
"cov? tree'-1--the feruous "palo de

[ KORSE TORTURE.
8liU!ng the Nostrib U Not Yet ?
Wholly Obsoleto Practico.
Slitting a horse's nostrils is still
practiced in some parts of tho world,
as in Persia, Mongolia end. even in
northern Africa,-*and ponies with
slit nostrils aro often seen in tho
Himalayas and ip Afghanistan, This
???t??iion .is resorted to in tho er
roneous belief that the horse can in
hale more air when going at a fast
pace and also that it prevents neigh
ing, a disqualification of much im
portance during war or when it is
desirable to travel as silently as
possible. It was practiced in Hun
gary not long ago. if wo are to ac
cept aa cvideneethe copy of a finish
ed sketch of a horse's head by the
celebrated Zo??aiii, given in Colonel
Hamilton's work on horses.- It is
rather surprising that tile fashion
was not renewed m England, for two
or three centuries, ago to prevent a
horse neighing it was rccomim'u?ed
to t?o a . woolen band around tho
tongue. Markham sa)*8 :
"If either when you are in service

CLAIMANTS ?b DIVINITY.
Attempt* to Impero Upon tho Fanatic
There have been many attempts
made in tho history of tho world by
claimants to divinity lo impose upon
the fanatic and credulous. Perhaps
tho movement of this kind which
attracted tho greatest attention waa
that initiated by Joanna Southcott
at the latter end of thc eighteenth
century. Thia eiptraordinary wom
an was a domestic servant in tlie
early port of her career; but, becom
ing probably thc victim of religious
mania, ehe announced herself as a
prophetess, and very Boon, by dint
of her extraordinary claims and
writings, she obtained no fewer
than ^00,000 followers.
Joanna announced in all serious
ness that she was about to become
thu mother of tho divino Shiloh and
named Oct. 19, 1814, as tho dato
upon which tho event would take
place. As showing tho perfect faith
her followers hod in her claims, it
may bo mentioned that they sub
scribed for and bought a silver cra
dle which cost $1,000 ovl that $500
was spent in pop spoons. As tho
date approached'she shut herself up
in ,a house specially bought for the
interesting event, and tho fever of
excitement which reigned may bc
better imagined than described, for
Joanna was over sixty years of agc.
Instead, however, of thc divino child
appearing the venerable prophetess
herself died on the 29th of October,
or ten days after the date she had
herself fixed. for the birth of th*
Messiah. * . '
But Joanna is by no means tb?
only example of u human being ar
rogating divine powers to himself oi
herself. ? ? / '
When George III. was king om
Bichord Brothers, a master's mat?
in tho royal navy, suddenly an
nouueed that he was "prince of He
brews and ruler of the world," am
: that therefore King George shoulx
give up the crown in his favor. Hi
claim met with scant courtesy.' H
waa promptly imprisoned aa a crim
ina! lunatic-though he could, no
have been madder than thc poor oh
king-and kept in captivity fe
eleven years. .
The navy "seems to have boen I
happy hunting ground for this clas
of impostor at this period, for th
next to appear woa "Zion" Ward, ai
ex-shoemoKef, who had served i
the navy. In 1828 he had the ira
pu dc nco to announce himself as th
divine Shiloh, who luid been expand

ALONE IN A CROWD.
Orv? Phase of Apartment Houae Lifo In
the Qr?ai Cities. r
There aw perhaps 100 people in
our apartment house, 1,000 or it
may be 2,000 or 3,000 in our block.
Tiley live in small* comfortably fur- j
niahed and very convenient apart
ments, but they live alone. No one
ever sees any exchange of courtesies
between them. They are not inter
ested in the progress of the lives of
tho peoplo about them. You might
J io there a year or ten years, and I
doubt if your next door neighbor
would even BO much as know of
your existence, lie is too busy.
Your business might fail,, your chil
dren perish. You might suffer every
calamity from heartache to literal
physical destruction, and I doubt
, whether ho would ever hear of it.
I Marriage, birth, death, any and all
of the other homely and really es
sential happenings of life are all
trivial under1 thc new dispensation.
Neither you nor your wife nor chil
dren nor your children's children
havo any interest for him. It is all
ns if you really did not exist.
The pathos of all this is that
these people never quito realize un
til 6ome of tho real calamities of lifo
overtake them what they have been
ignoring and casting aside. Until
they ore old, until they aro stricken
with illness, until they stand bereft
of fortune or until tiley are visited I
by death-then and then only do
they become aware of thc impor
tance o? tho individual relationship.
It matters not in euell an hour what
the prime importance of the world
may bo. It will not avail them to
know that tho world still goes on
and that the principal thorough
fares of the great cities ore alive
with a spectacle forever fascinating
and forever now. Life in tim ab
stract cannot nid them then. They
are alone, left longing for a per
sonal relationship, with on aching
ond, too often, ? breaking heart.
Friendship, affection, tenderness,
how . they loom large in the hour of
despair!-Theodore Dreiser in Tom
How to Wa4k Upatafre.

You should i*i walking or climbing

feet shomld be placed squarely down
on the Btep, heel and all, and then
the work should be performed slow

there ia no .-^rain upon any particu

duty in a natural manner. The man
who goes upstairs with a springing

not been directed to that subject."
