FI1ARIA IS A NEW DIGEASE.
Responsible for the Death of Many
Capt. Charles Kieeffer, a "United
Ptate^ army surgeon, says the Phil
ippines are infested with mosquitoes
more troublesome sua?- dangerous from
a medical point of view than those
that swarm in the Jersey swamps. A
strange malady known as filarla is
traced directly to them, and is com
mon among the American soldiers
quartered on the islands. Soldiers
contract the disease by drinking
water from stagnant pools in which,
the mosquitoes have laid their eggs.
The first indication of filaria ap
pears in the form of a worm in the
victim's thorax. This develops into
elephantiasis, which causes the pa
tient terrible pains, accompanied by
a constant cough. The sufferer la
worst at night, and the patient be
comes a prey to Insomnia.
Tne only remedy lies in an opera
tion, which in itself Is dangerous and
rarely successful. If the worm, which
is a female, is injured and dies
through the operation, its poison geta
into the blood, the disease is increased
a thousandfold and the chances of re
covery are small.
DINNER IN THE WOOD9.
Enthusiast Talks of Delights of Ttout
In the deep shade of the tree the
baskets are laid, and now a fire Is
started near by, one of Van Dyke's
little "friendship fires," which shall
also cook a few trout. "Get two
flat stones, friendand they'll be hard
to find in this boulder country, but
they are sometimes worn quite flat
while I gather some sufficient wood."
Into the fire the stones go, and the
wood is heaped about them. Soon
the intense glow of live wood embers
indicates that the time has come.
The trout, a sliver of bacon in each,
are placed on a stone, first well dust
ed of its ashes, and the other stone is
laid upon them. Now the hot embers
are raked about and over the stones,
and the lunch is spread on the big
rock near the spring. Oh, ye epicures,
who think nothing good unless serv
ed by a Delmonico or a Sherry, go ye
into the mountains, follow brook for
half a day, get wet and tired and hun
gry, sit down by an ice-cold spring
and eat brook trout cooked on the
spot, and delicious bread and butter
liberally siread with clover honey.
Not till tien have ye dined.Outing.
NOT A POLYGAM1ST.
How Bishop Potter Filled Out an Of
An army officer just returned from
the Philippines tells this story on
When the bishop went out to Ma
nila a year or two ago, on his arrival
at the islands he was confronted by
a formidable list of about thirty
questions. The list, prepared by
Uncle Sam for Chinese and native
Filipinos was nevertheless submit
ted impartially to all comers.
Gravely the bishop, as became his
respect of forms, wrote down his
name, age, occupation, place of birth.
He did not even smile as he wrote
"No" opposite the question "Have you
But the last question was too much.
A look of mock pain crossed his fea
"Must I answer this?" he asked the
The examiner nodded.
And in the space opposite "Are
you a polygamist?" the bishop grave
ly wrote "Not yet."
The Art of the Palmist.
The girl who was the picture of
health came out of the palmist's
booth with a startled expression on
her face. "Do you know," she said
to a bevy of girl friends"do you
know, that palmist told me I was in
perfect health. Now. you know, I'm
never ill but how could he tell that
from looking at my hand?" And her
filends murmured, "How wonderful!"
Spread of Irrigation Works.
The government is to begin the con
struction of irrigation works in five
localities. The Sweetwater dam, Wy
oming Mill river, Montana the Gun
nison tunnel, Colorado Truckee, Nev.,
and Salt river, Arizona. The cost of
the five plants is estimated at $7,000,-
000 and they are expected to furnish
water for 60,000 acres.
In the primary class of a certain
Sunday school the lesson was being
reviewed by a visitor. When she
finally asked for the Golden Text, a
little boy on the back row eagerly
raised his hand and proudly repeated:
"We cannot serve God and women."
