The Genuine vs. Counterfeits.
The genuine is always better than a
counterfeit, but the truth of this state
ment is never more forcibly realized or
C more thoroughly appreciated than when
you compare the genuine DeWitt's
Witch Hazel Salve with the many coun
terfeits and worthless substitutes that
are on the market. W. S. Ledbetter of
Shreveport, La., says: "After using nu
inerous other remedies witheut benefit,
one box of DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve
cured me." For blind. bleeding, itching
and protruding piles no remedy is equal
to DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve. Sold

PIT BROW WOMEN.
hard Lot of Female Workers About
English Coat Mines.
Pit brow women are among the most
C_ remarkable women workers in the
world. They work as hard as men and
dress almost like them. Five thousand
of these women find employment in
Lnncashire, England, In the coal mins.
Their work lies on the pit brow at the
surface and not down below. Once wo
men were employed in the coalrseaft,
but in 1842, in the face of great oppo
o sition from colliery owners, an act )vs
passed prohibiting women and children
from being employed below the surface
in coal mines.
At present the duties of the pit brow
women consist in dealing with the vol
as it comes up the shaft to the pit head.
When the cargo reaches the'top they
haul out the wagons, which contain
several hundredweight of coal eqcb,
and run them on the rails to a sort'of
WE tipping machine. which shoots the coal
down below to the screen of the rid
dling machine. Among the other du
ties of he women is the leveling of the
coal on 'he wagons which receive It as
it drops from the screen.
-- tart work at 6 o'clock in the
morning an =,h at 4 In the after
noon. They receive -' less a.
Eday, and men that do the same w
get 4 shillings. Their costume consists
of trousers and clogs and often enough
a cape which has at one time been
worn by a brother. When going to
and from work the girls and women
wear petticoats, which they roll up
around the waist while engaged on
the pit brow. The hair is closely cov
ered with a handkerchief, on top of

A Valley of Death In Bolivia.
There is a valley in Bolivia, South
America, which might well be called
E the Valley of the Shadow of Death. It
has been inhabited for an indefinite
period of years by the Kanaa Indians,
who are kindred to the various South
Amelrican tribes and number now only
a few hundred souls. That they were
once a very powerful tribe is indicated
by the condition of the land which
they as a tribe still inhabit. One can
not travel any distance through their
C land without coming upon the old and
forsaken burial grounds of the Kanaa
dead. These places cannot be called
graveyards, for the bodies are not
buried, but rather placed upon elevat
E ed platforms, wrapped in the garments
of death and bound to the crossbeams
that they may not be displaced.
SIn one of these burial grounds there
_will be probably fifty high skeleton
platforms, and on each will lie from
Sthree to five of the Kanaa dead. The
air in that part of Bolivia is very pure
Sand preservative, for it is one of the
highest plateaus of the continent, al
though Kanaa valley is just a little
Sbelow the plateau's height A traveler

An Affair of Letters.
We are mich surprised at meeting
little Polly Contosse], formerly of Bow
ersville, in England.
"Why, Polly!" we say. "How is It
we find you here?"
"Polly!"- she repeats, with a dignity
we never knew she possessed. "Lady
Oledebts, If you please."
An apolpogy on ,our part establish.es
friendly relations once more, and she
tells us that she really has won and
wedded Lord Oledebts and that her fa
ther's dollars are being expended in the
refurbishing of the Oledebts castle.
"But," we say, "it wyas rumored in
3 Bowersville that you were hesitating
in your choice between three honest
farmer lads in the vicinity. How was
It, then, that you married his lordship?"
"Oh" she titters, "he came to Bow
id ersville one day. When I saw him I
ai dropped my eyes and he began dropping
his h's, and it wasn't long until he in

t A Trick In Letter Writing.
"If you are compelled to write a let
ter in lead pencil because there is no
ink in the house blow your breath on
ii the page after it has been written,"
a said a woman who evidently had tried
et the experiment "It will prevent blur
ring after the letter has been folded.
a- It moistens the graphite and makes It
. adhere more closely to the paper. Of
course you can make It blur by rub

l written in ink."-New York Press.

Owes His ILife to a Neighbor's Kindness.
Mr. D. P. Daugherty, well known
throughout Mercer and Sumner coun
ties, W. Va., most likely owes his life
to the kindness of a neighbor. He was
almost hopelessly afflicted with diar
rhoea; was attended by two physicians
who gave him little, if any, relief, when
a neighbor learning of his serious con
dition, bought him a bottle of Cham

exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caur,

the juIces of natural digestion. This Ia
