Prof. Woodward, of the Natural
History Museum, of Mouth Kensing
ton, London, who has been engaged
for some time past In excavating at
Pikermi, near Marathon, has recently
completed his work. One of the
most valuable discoveries Is a collec
tion of heads of horned horses. They
were unearthed at Kuborca, where
the professor carried on some experi
mental excavations for palaeonto
logical remains. In addition to the
beads of the horned horses, the head3
and shin hones of rhinocerl and other
prehistoric animals were discovered.
It is curious that out of the six places
in the world where the remains of the
horned hovse have been found three
are in Greece and a fourth in Samoa,
in the Greek archipelago.

Mrs. D. Arnold, President German
Woman's Club, Grand Pacific Hotel, Los
Angeles, Cal., Relieved of a Tumor by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
"Dear Mrs. Pinkham t I suffered four years ago with a tumor
in my womb, and the doctors declared I must go to the hospital and un
dergo an operation, which I dreaded very much and hesitated to submit.
" My husband consulted an old friend who had studied medicine,
although he was not practising physician, and he said he believed
that Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound would cure
me. That same day I took my first dose, and I kept it up faithfully
until twelve bottles had been used, and not only did the tumor dis
appear, but my general health was very much improved and I had
not felt so well since I was a young woman.
" As I have suffered no relapse since, and as I took no other med
icine, I am sure that your Compound restored my health and I believe
saved my life." Mrs. D. Arnold.

Tlio work of tlio l'tjrlal I'orp of tin Ainoricnn Army in tlio Philippim'S
is anions the most uninviting tasks ever nssunied to liuniiin beings. Cofrins
indoseil in massive deal cases are shipped from San Francisco to Manila, and
the lUirial Corps proceeds from station to station throughout the islands, dis
interring the remains and preparing tlieni for transportation back to the
United States. The actual work oZ exhuming is done by natives. The
eoliins are placed in rows, one opposite each grave, and the work of dis
interring begins all along the line. Tha top of the buried cotliu is torn off
with iron hooks, and a bottle containing an identification slip is removed
and broken open. The slip Is compared with the death record. The bones
are placed in a sheet along with the identification slip, and every precau
tion is taken to prevent any mistakes in identity. Collier's Weekly.

by Fathers Buceta and Uravo in their
dictionaries of the Philippines. The
population, according to the census of
1S87, was 20!),087, but this figure did
not include the natives of the interior.
The Moros form the larger portion of
the inhabitants of the Island of Min-

attention on account of their turbulent
character and the influence which, they

Owing in part at least, to the Avarlike
spirit which animates them, the Moron
have always been turbulent and refrac
lory toward outside domination. They
have displayed a tendency toward rob
bery and piracy. Their settlement
which are always small, are situated
in low plains near the fields, or in th
vicinity of rivers, creeks and swamps.
They ravage the fields, burn house
and take, captives in order to increase
the number of their slaves.
Their ignorance is as great as their
cruelty. Apart from their datos, and
those who constitute among them a
sort of ecclesiastical hierarchy, few of
them know how to read and almost no
one can write. They have no books ex

Those who are condemned to death

as objects for trying the edges of their
kriscs or tombicus. Sometimes they
are given over to the populace, who cut
them to bits with kris blows struck i:i
