In Vain. Had Lest All Faith.

another one your remedy has cured, and I want
tcuell you about iL.
My attention was called to the 8 D's by a dis
play in your dealer's window. Reed Hurlbut.
and after looWogowr-tbe cures there-shown I
decided at once to try it, "bavin? little faith in
anything. ?' My trouble was Eczema on the
Sneers under the nails, and particularly the
first joint: the skin wouid look scalded and the
little cells would connect like a sponge under
the skin: sometimes there would be a very bad
odor with the discbarge. I tried everything I
could bear of. and went to six doctors, two of
them being intimate friends. They did every
thing they possibly could and studied the thing
up, but c: no use. The other doctors thought
they could cure by a regular course of treatment
I was willing to be experimented upon if any
possible chance for relief. This t him: bad been
going on for over two years, when to my great
comfort 3 D's came to my hands. Your
remedy gave me more cure in t.wodaysthan any
of the six doctors effected la over two years,
and inside of two weeks I had new healthy skin on
all of my once rotten fingers, as I termed them
I also wish to say that ar.y one of the 6ix
doctors are as good as we tave in D. M., and
that my two friends have prescribed your rem
edy to their entire satisfaction for the post two
years, or since my cure. Don't let the formula
ever go to the grave, for humanity's sake.
I wish you all the success in the world and
hope to bo able to direct more sufferers to you.

Shocking Practice of the Child
Widows of India Has
B?OKEN OUT AGAIN.
They Hurl ^Themselves on the Burning
Fsneral Pyres of Their Husband's
in Spite of the Warnings of
the English Government
on the Subject /
The British Government in India is
mucb disturbed over the failure of all
its efforts to stamp out the horrible
Hintu practice of suttee?the burn
ing alive of a widow on the funeral
pyre of her husband.
Such an example was n ade a year
ago of seven of the principals convic
ted of having aided in this barbarous
religious rite, whenarioh widow went
voluntarily to her fate, that the (?1
cials believed there would be no fur
ther recurrance of the ancient but
now forbidden custom.
Yet, even while the guilty persons
connected with that occasion were
app-allng to the courts, pcomillng tc
renouuce a religion wuica demanded
such a sacrifice of life, auother widow
aided by relatives and neighbors of
her village, bas just now been sent by
way of the flaming pyre to join her
o us band in Paradist?as is the belief
of orthedox Hindus.
It is not exactly known when the
practice of BUttte originated. It la
mentioned by Dlodorus ? culus as be
ing com nun when the Macedonians
first entered India. To-day all the
holy spots along the rontes of Hinou
pilgrimage are dotted with little,
white pillars, each commemorating a
"Satl," as the "good 'woman" and
faithful wife is called who throws her
self into the flumes which consume
che bcdy of her dead husband.
Tue emperor Akbar is said to have
prohibited sutte, but vainly. Not
until the year 1820 did the English
oare to interfere with tbe religious
rite so deeplp rooted. Then Sir Wil
liam Benik;c_ declared those who as
-ls.en in the oeromony guilty of "cul
pable homicide." He enforced the
law so rigorously that only in isolated
communities and in secret was tne
It is known that in the year 1817
in the Bengal presidency alone, 700
widows were thus burned alive. This
religious custom does not force a wid
ow to die in the flames of her hus
band's funeral pyre. It never hah
been necessary to use compulsion.
The alternative?a miserable and de
graded existence, in which she was
^'splsfd by all sent the widow wil
lingly to the flames.
besides, the Hinaus regard this act
as that of a virtuos and faithful wife
-Until English rule forbade it, it ?a;
strongly recommended bypublio opin
ion, among the Bajputs especially, as
the only means of the widow's and
her husbands happiness in the future
state. The primitive view of the fu
*ure life held by Hindus regarded tbe
dead as having the same needs as the.
Tnis explains the difficulty the
English government has in stamping
out the practice of suttee.
Until a year ago, when seven Hin
dus were sentenced to terms in prison
for complicity in the burning alive
with her hu.band's body of the young
widow of Ghaudrhi Missir, a rich mer

In fact she did not accompany the

the wood bad been lighted that her
slight figure, all swathed in white
suddenly rushed upon the scene.
Those near her noticed that her gar

also that she had tightly bound up
her lower jaw, as though she were al

the reason chat she feared that the
agony of the flames might cmse
her to cry out in spite of all her r? so
In her eyes, according to the testi

Gunga and Dllohing Ohamars, nrar
telatives, sentenced to terms rang
ing from three years down to nine
The testimony given in court, oov
ering the most minute details, show
ed this instance of suttee to have
been performed with the most elabor
ate ceremony. Obaudrbl Missir was
a high caste Bral min, of lifluence,
living in the village of Sanchari, near
Eebar. He died and arrangements
were made for the burning of his bod;
on a hillside on the banks of a small
river called "Devi Sthan."
Under the direction of his eldest
son, Juggernatb, some of his bumble
retainers dug shallow trenches in tbe
f jrmof a St. Andrew's Gross and over
this piled tbe wood of tbe pyre. In
the cutting of tbe wood?which is a
part of the funeral ceremony?Jug
gernath Missir, tha eldest son, assist
red. Being a Brahmin gentleman he
had no axe of bis own. Bam La)
Barhi, a carpenter of tbe village lent
him his. Many of the villagers assist
ed, too, while others gathered about
as spectators. ?
When the villagers saw the widow
of Ohaudrhi Missir bathing in the
river the whisper ran from one t(
"Suttee! Suttee! The widow cf
Cbaudrhi Missir will be Sati !"
The cremation of a dead Brahmir
was an ordinary occurrence, bot San
chari Village had known no Sutte?; if
half a century. Soon, while Junger
nath Ms-lr continued to cut woor
and arrange it upon the pyre, hue
irecls were joining the cr.iv/d on th
hillside Volunteer musicians brougb
their drums, cymbals and gongs. Ofch
ers brought the sacred Sanies or shell

At length the pyre was ready. Bear
ers brought the body of Cnaudrhl
Misiiir and laid it thereon, with bh
feet toward the setting sun, for i'
was afternoon. Ram Charan, Dwarka
and Balklshun Missir, tbe younger
suns, brought the helmet, the sword,
spear arjd modern rille and the cloth
l?g of Cbaudrhi MlhSirand laid then
beside the corpse on the pyre.
Tbe hillside was new ailve wit!
thousands of vintagers and country
men. Their bodies swayed to ard

waiting for tbe widow of Cbaudrhi

Tbe d'uwH, gongs and cymbals gave

the hillside waved their bodies, bow

Then tbe voice of the widow was
heard softly calling to Juggernath
"My rod, since you are here and
fear not the law, do your duty as Be
comes a faithful Hindu."
Then Juggernath Mlssir lighted
some wheat sf cks, and having walked
three times around the pyre, accord

The pyre was not a roaring furnace
All at once, amid the beating of tbe
drums and the clang of the cymbals,
the body of tbe widow fell upon the
corpse of tbe husband and the two
seemed to dissolve t< gether. Soon
they wer but ashes mingled with tbe
ashes of the pyre.

suttee has come to light, when tbe
