(iLAND STOVES& RANG ES,
Are the Best Manufactured.
WHY, LET'S TAKE REASON INTO CONSIDEPATION:
BECAUSE: They are made, not of scrap iron, but of pure pig iron
BECAUSE: They are the only ones that have the ventilated Ovens,
thus rendering them perfect bakers.
BECAUSE: They are the heaviest and have more lasting qualities.
BECAUSE: They have always taken first prize over all others.
BECAUSE: They are high priced Stoves and the dealer cannot get
but little profit out of them.
BECAUSE: They have a reputation that none other has nor can
wish to get.
BECAUSE: They are handled by a man who is catering for the
hardware trade, one who has and always will knock the
spots out of any pri-es that can be offered you in the
town of Manning.
My prices will speak for themselves and sell the Stoves.

THREE QUEER DISEASES.
Two of Them Abide In the Kongo
Region and One In Peru.
There are two remarkable diseases,
either or both of which may attack
you if you elect to reside within the
Congo basin, but you need have no
dread of them if you live in any other
part of the world. One is the sleeping
sickness, a terrible, mysterious and in
variably fatal malady. The patient is
at first only drowsy, but ends by sleep
ing almost continually, waking only
for meals or when forcibly roused.
Finally the torpor becontes complete.
Ile cannot be roused even to take food,
and dies of starvation.
The other disease alluded to is even
more curious, although fortunately not
nearly so deadly, and is known to spe
cialists in tropical diseases as ainhuin,
from a negro word meaning a saw, a
very apposite name, for the typical
feature of the ailment consists in the
slow amputation of one or more of the
victim's toes by means of a serrated
bony ligature which grows around the
joint of the affected member just
where it joins the foot. As soon as the
ligature is completely formed it begins
to contract, and off comes the toe as
effectually, if not quite so quickly, as
if it had been severed by the surgeon's
In the province of Cerro de Pasco, in
Peru, may be contracted a strange
malady which consigns its victim to
certain and lingering death. The ail
ment in question is termed verrugas
(Spanish, a wart), and it occurs only
in certain deep valleys in the highlands
of that province. There, however, it is
endemic and frightfully fatal, especial
ly to the unacclimatized white man.
The whole surface of the body in bad
cases becomes entirely covered with
spongy, wartlike excrescences, varying
from the size of a raspberry to that of
a pigeon's egg, and from every one of
these the patient's life blood oozes out
continually until he perishes of inani
Fear Will Harm and Courage Hel#
You When Disease Comes.
Illness is most like a cowardly cur
which gives chase If you flee from it,
but goes on about its business, that of
seeking the fearful ones, if you pass
on unnoticing. but courageous. The
reasons for the ability of brave men to
go unharmed through pest hospitals,
as did Napoleon and as physicians do
every day, are not only psychological,
The quality of mere courage seems
to have a sort of pickling and harden
ing effect upon the tissues of the body,
like the plunge in brine, steeling them
against infection, while fear, by "un
stringing" the nerves, weakens the
whole resisting power of the body, in
viting the very evil feared most.

SERVANTS IN JAPAN
A LAND WHERE DOMESTIC SERVICE
IS CONSIDERED AN HONOR.
The "Boys" That Wait on Table In
Hotels and How They Work.
Household Servants That Are Equal
In Birth to Their Masters.
They have some curious notions
about servants in Japan. Instead of
its being considered a disgrace to go
into domestie service in that country
it is an honor, writes Mr. Douglas Sla
Jinrikisba boys and grooms may not
have the honor of being servants at
all, but are tradesmen, which is the
lowest thing of all in Japan short of
being an eta, or member of the class
of outcasts. Grooms are excluded as

Japanese think it impossible for a
groom to be honest) and the rickshaw

There are two classes of servants,
personal and kitchen. Kitchen serv
ants need have no knowledge of eti
quette. They are sometimes rough
creatures from the country, no better
than rickshaw boys. They are dull,
contented drudges, but Cook San (Mr.
Cook) is held in a very different esti
mation. In a small household he does
the catering and keeps the accounts as
well as superintends the ridiculous lit
tle bird's nest of charcoal ash which
cooks the meals in Japan.
The personal servants show a hu
mility to their emp!oyers which would
paralyze an Englishman with any
sense of humor, and their masters as
sume an etiquette air of command.
But from every one else these serv
ants expect a considerable amount of
Hotel servants are male and female.
Hotels for Europeans generally have
men housemaids as well as men wait

To go to a Japanese hotel for the
first time is like going to a farce. -It is
impossible to keep serious. In the din
ing room you are surrounded by panto

doublets and hose, who run about
shoeless and are called "boys" and

some numbers and brings them, but
you would have a far better chance of
getting what you want if you simply
said 2, 7, 9.
You can hardly bear yourself speak
for the scruff, scruff across the floor.
You think it is lucky they don't wear
boots. At very grand hotels they wear

and bad imitations of foreign shoes,

THE SPLASHING HOUSE.
A French Yarn That Was Printed to
One of the most extraordinary tules
ever invented about Englishmen by
foreigners was the "splashing house"
story, given to the world by the Paris
journal Patrie in 18S. An Ingenious
writer in the paper gravely informed a
his readers that in the suburbs of Lon
don were houses where "earth beaten h
up into mud is retailed." To these
houses men were accustomed to resort
in hunting kit fur the purpose of being
splashed with uud.
"These curious establishments are
provided with muUs of different coun
ties, but principally of those counties
where the hunting is best. The sale of
the mud is conducted in the most Se
rious manner Imaginable; the attend
ant inquires, 'From what county, sir,
do you wish It to be supposed you have
just returned?' 'From the county of
Kent.' The pretenJed sportsman there
upon takes a seat on a wooden horse
whose legs throw up the selected mud;
after having been well splashed the
customer pays his bill (3 shillings),
casts'an eye of approbation toward the
mirror, takes a whip in his hand and e
goes to exhibit his muddy clothes in
Piccadilly. Bond street or Pall Mall,
in order that it may be supposed that
he has just returned from a grand k

ing house" has another more imme

which he is splashed affords, if not
proof, strong presumptive evidence
that he Is a landed proprietor In the a
county whose mud bespatters him."
