out of the lei el groumi and hot into the
air 300 feet, spouting water and clay in
volumes that threaten to Hood the adja

in the midst of it.
Rancher Myers was boring a well on
his place near Santa Ke Springs when the
miracle occurred. A large 200 pound drill
was being nmd. Mr. Myers had already
got a 10 inch pipe partly sunk and was
felicitating himself upon the prospect of
nn early strike of oil. when suddenly the
great drill sailed skyward and a column
of water and other matter burst from the
10 inch pipe as thouga a ton of powder
were under it.
The workmen ran for their lives and
were not there when the column reached
its height and began to shed clay and tor
rents of water upou the surrounding
acres. The spout is in the midst of a fer
tile, level area, and it is only a question
of time when all will be inundated un
less Providence stops the flow in time to
avert such disaster. Up to this writing
the mysterious force under ground is
heaving out its venom with undiminished
activity, and no power of man's can check
it. The stones which are hurtling out of
the vertical tube would wreck any appli

Besides there arc no volunteers at hand
ready to do the thrusting. Everybody

THE WHIPPING POST.
x)ertn Declare That It In a Deter
rent of Crime,
Al n recent meeting of experts in
Iriminology Judge Simeon 1J. Baldwin of
Ihe supreme court of Connecticut said:
"1 do not hesitate to auw mj conviction
that whipping would often furnish r.
mode of puuishment far more appropri
ate than nne or imprisonment for minor
offenses and a usefnl addition to imp. is
onment for grater "ones. While holding
criminal terms of the superior court 1

sentence culprits to confinement in jail,

ion, better fitted by some form of punish
ment shottcr in duration and sharper in
"No sentence to a county jail is
greatly dreaded by a hardened criminal.
It gives him in most cases an assurance
of better housing and of better food
than he is iu the habit or gaining by any
other mode of exertion. On the other
hand, whipping is dreaded by every one,
man or child. We shrink from it first
and most because it hurts. It is no de
gradation to a boy to be whipped by his
father, or by his master at school. That
is not his objection to it. He feels that
it is a reasonable and natural conse
quence off misdoing, and leaves him bet
ter rather than worse. The sailor and
the soldier, until recent yeais, met it in
thesame way aud with uo los of spirit
or of loyalty to their flag. Custom for
them had disassociated it from disgrace.
It was simply retribution. Among ci
vilians, however, to the grown man it is
and always was a maik of deladation
in the eyes of the community. But as a
penalty for, crime it is a consequence of
degradation rather than a cause of it.
It was the crime that leally degraded.
Governor Buckingham of Connecticut
once stated that no white man uad ever
been whipped twice under a judicial sen
tence in that state There have been
many who have gone back to jail 10
and 20 time3."
Rev. 1'hoebe Hanaford said: "The
whipping post is the best thing for wife
beaters. Justice and mercy both require
it. If a man is fined his family sutlers
the loss ofo much money. If he is
imprisoned the family will be deprivod
of the wages which he might be able to
earn. Then, again, ihe fear of bodily
pain will deter him from abusing his
wife more than the thought of going to
jail. The whipping should not be a pub
lic spectacle. Publicity would add noth
ing to the punishment of the wife heater.
Ehe Shudders "When She Realizes the
Danger and Pain of Child-bearing.
There is so much suffering and danger
in store for the young mother, that her
happy anticipation soon gives way to a
feeling of dread at the thought of the
pain which she must undergo. This
constant fear so preys upon the mind of
many women that it fills them with ter
ror and makes baby's coming a source
of the greatest anxiety and dread.
All the suffering and danger of the
ordeal can be avoided by tho use
of "Mother's Friend," which prepares
the body for this important event. It
relieves "morning sickness" and many
other unpleasant conditions which ex
ist during thi3 time. Thousands of
women praise "Mother's Friend" for
bringing them safely through the most
critical period of their lives.
Every woman should send their name
and address to the Bradfield Regulator
Co., Atlanta, Georgia, and receive free,
valuable information on the subject.

Decnnse snch a man is not sensithe. But
a public whipping would have a bad ef
fect en the community."
The communication from Chief Justice
Charles B. Lore of the supreme court of
Delaware was, in part: "The pillory and
whipping post, inherited from the mother
country in colonial times, have been re
tained in Delaware's criminal system un
til the ptesent time, the pillory being used
ou'y in a few caes of the most heinous
crimes, but the whipping post in caes
of felony genera!l., the highest number
of lashes now ghcu in any case being 40.
This has grown largely out of two condi
tions: Kiist, the northern and most popu
lous part of the state i a nnnow tongue
of land about 1- miles in width, wedged
in lietween Pennsylvania on the one l,and
and Maryland on tho other. Across this
wedge i tin two of the great trunk lines of

York on the north with Baltimore and
Washington on the sojth; in each case

thing to have a daily duuipi'ig of from 30
to 40 railroad tramp riders, many of them

large ciiies. Xearly one-fourth of our
convicts are of this class."

Accoiding to this reiitlcman, stlf mur

The brilliant complexions of women in the more exclusive circles of New

they keep their good looks even when they are old. How do they manage
it? THE MISSES BELL, of 7S Fifth Avenue, New York, themselves con

One of the most potent forces iu opera

and have been gotten out iu all foinis to
appeal to all elates. Some of the publi
cations, indeed, are scholarly and in the
maudaiin colloquial; others in poetiy aud
piose. with illustrations and without.
I5ut no matter how fanltle-s the appear
ance or classical the production, the idea
desiied to be conveyed is invariably, from
a Christian standpoint, either biutally in
delicate or frightfully blasphemous.
The factor which has been found to
have the gieatcst effect of late is the car
toon. The uncultmed Chinaman has no
natural delicacy, and to appeal to him
an illustration must be made in the plain
est possible wny. Thus the educated
Chinaman has found that wheie a cooly
would read the most malignant text ever
written with inactive anger his wrath
would bubble over were the text accom
panied by a frankly explanatory picture.
Acting upon this, the publishers began
to i educe their long winded tirades and
to elaborate the iiictures so that they
might speak for themselves. The lesult
is a dissemination of a series -of the most
wiath provoking illustrations ever pub
licly placed befoie the gaze of man.
The publishers of the caitoons have no
thought of making money out of their
circulation. The trade does not keep
them on sale. They cannot be excused
even on the score of tilling a popular de
mand. Certain individuals or political
associatiouhnve them printed and them
selves accomplish their circulation by
means of agents, who distribute-them di
rectly among the people or, when prac
ticable, post them on walls. Naturally
this occasions an expenditure of funds
by uo means small, which is met by offi
cials and gentry interested. In order to
make their effects more sweeping the

pioviuces. A glance at the cartoons
shows wiij- Chinese hatred of foreigners
does not more quickly subside. The minds
of the heathen in China are intensely
credulous apd accept as absolutely true
these hideous things thrust before them.
It has been proved that when left to
themselves this cUss of people are harm
less, but with minds so poisoned it is
scarcely to be -wondered that they are
anxious and eager to revenge themselves
according to their lights.
To those not at all or but superficially,
acquainted with the Chinese chatacter it
is not easj of comprehension why edu
cated men of rank and position will per
mit themselves to be identified with such
outrageous proceedings. It must be borne
in mind, however, that China is a non
Christian country, apd things w hich must
be regai ded with horror by a Christian
nation are looked upon in the former
u ith the smile born of immemorial tradi
tion and precedent. The Chinese literati
have. long accepted the insulting and
leWling of foreigners and their religions
as a plensurable duty aud aie not dis
posed to forego it until forced to.
It is with deep interest that the out
come of the present toyil dispute in the
Chinese empire is awaited. It is possi
ble that an entiiely new aud more whole
Home era may be inauguiated. So far the
nlhcial who personally is friendly to for

advancement, and when he recognizes
that in posing ns a conservative he is pa
