Our blood should be at free from
impurities as drinking water.
If it becomes impure we fall siok.
Our kidneys are simply blood
filters. They filter the impurities
out of the blood. That is why it is
so dangerous to have kidney disease,
because when our kidneys are sick
they cannot kecponr blood pure.
Diseases are generally caused by
blood poisoning. Especially those
mentioned above. The poisoning is
caused bv "impurities in the blood.

LIGHTNING AND RUBBERS.
Wilt Goloshes limine a Thanderstorsa If
Ton Are Afraid.
The one thing which a woman most
dreads burring, of course, a mouse and
being ont of style is a thunder shower.
Many most estimable women, of charac
ter and force, who can lead great cru
sades and revolutionize society, go all
to pieces at a clap of thunder, and a
good many men, too, for that matter.
It is not aforeablo to bo struck by
lightning. Nor is it at all necessary.
Thero is a 6nro preventive as sure as
it is simple, inexpensive and always oc-
cessiblo a pair of rubbers. If a woman
will simply pot ou a pair of rubbers
whomthe lightning begins to flash and
the thunder to roar, and will stand on
tho floor so that she touches nothing
else, filio will bo as safo as if she were
sealed in a glass cage.
Rubber is a nonconductor of electric
ity, and if the lightning has to go
through a sheet of rubber to get at yon
it will leave yon alouo and tako some
thing dse. In other words, when you
have on a pair of rubbers and are not in
contact with anything, yon are perfectly
This is not a theory merely. It ia a
fact proved by innumerable experiences.
A pair of rubbers has saved many a life
in a thunderstorm.
Last summer Horace W. Folger cf
Gambridgeport, Mass., was on a pilot -boat
in Boston harbor, when a thunder
shower caiivo up. He was on deck wear
ing rubber boots, bat steadying hiinFolf
with one hand by a wire cabin from tho
main topmast. Ljglituing struck the top
xuast, tthircring it into splinters. Down
the cable went tiie current Folger was
knocked unconscious. When ho recover
ed, ho was fnll of aches and pains, but
ho iillc(l through. If, it had not been
for tho ruliber boots, the current would
havo passed entirely through him. As it
was the wrrent coald not get through
his boots, so it pawed down .tho cable
It might bo well to add that a pair of
robtiera to bo effective against lightning
must be sound and wholo. Do not put
on an old pair with a crack in tho too
because electricity will get ont of a very
small holo when it is cornered, and a
pair of defective rubbers will do yon no
good. New York Press.

HARDY WILD PONIES.
HOW THEY ARE CAPTURED
TAMED ON SABLE ISLAND.
The Little Aalmala Arc Toughened by the
Bevarity of the Winters and Their Strag
gle to Procure pood A Master StalUoa
Leads Each Gang.
Stature has thickened the coats of the
wild ponies cf Sable island and given
the hair on them almost a woolly tend
ency. During the summer they fatten
on the succulent grasses, and the first
half of the winter they fairly hold their
own, but tho cold northeast winds and
snows of March and April, when the
polar ice surrounds tho island, drive
them clustering under tho lee of the
sand dunes, where they stay till too
weak and chilled to move about in search
of the scanty nourishment.
A year ago, after a ten days' stormy,
sleepy spell, no less than sis dead ani
mals were found huddled in a nook be
hind some sand hills. During the win
ter of 1694, 64 wild ponies died from ex
posure and natural causes. Of course
whero there are several hundred horses
or people no matter how well cared
for, there will be a number of deaths.
So wo cannot' put tho whole G4 deaths
down to "exposure and starvation."
That winter began With 400 wild ponies
on the island, and it was what the stall
there called a "hnrd winter."
Tho sand permeating their food causes
tho teeth to wear away rapilly, so that
old ago and inability to eat snflleient
como upon them sooner than with horse's
on the mainland. Their battles alo,
which, though not frequent, are fierce,
and at times to tho death, tend to in
crease tho percentage of mortality.
They go in gangs of from 5 to 25, ac
cording to cirramstauces. Each gang has
a master staliion, who is patriarc4i, fa
ther, defender. It wa my privilego last
March, when visiting the islnnd, to seo
1 1 gangs in ono day when Superintend
ent Boutilier drovo with mo from the
extremo eastern bar to tho main station.
We came within 20 or 30 yards of several
gangs, bnt they moved independently
away as we approached.
Catching and shipping them is an im
portant and, to all tho staff, an exciting
incident. I witnessed it from tho look
out platform of Ko. 4 station in the
early gray of an October morning. Sn
perintendent Boutilier roused mo at
dawn with tho words, "They are driv
ing iu tho first gang," and iu a few
minutes I was hastening from tho house.

whence I saw dark objects moving over
tho easterly hillocks. Soon could bo dis
tinguished nine wild ponies racing lnth
er and yon, but kept well together and
trending west by aid of 12 men on
horseback (native ponies that seemed to
enjoy the fun as much as tho men on
their backs) behind tliem, with long
whips and steutorious voices.
A cecrul 22 yards in diameter, strong
ly inclosed, with a branch-fence, extend
ing from one side somo 75 yards, made
it not unlike a fish trap or weir, into
which by judicious driving and heading
the gang was safely hxlged, and the
riders were off for another gang of L2,
which the boss had located, and which
in an honr, dcsjiito most desperato" ef
forts to break away, were all safely cor
ralled with the first gang.
Then immediately began a battle be
tween the two patriarchs, whicli I wit
nessed. Teeth, forefeet and heels, min
gled with very positive squeals, were
vigorously used. After awhile the weak
er stallion fled into the crowd, and the
victor's manner indicated his impor
tance and foreshadowed his apparent
doom, for the remark was mado, "We'd
better get that big fellow out, as he
might hurt some one, " So ho was soon
lassoed, thrown down, a Bonaparto bri
dlo put hi 'liis month and a lino to one
foot, and then'let up to dash out of the
corral through tho gateway purposely
opened, dragging two of tho boys who
guided him to the beach for whipnicnt.
Let me give the details: Four or five
men enter tho corral, cud the horses
cluster to tho opposite side. Then one
man throws a nooso around tho neck of
one, and two men pull that beast out of
the gang as the herds circlo round near
the inclosing fence.
Tlie difficulty of breathing soon causes
tenqiorary weakness, and the horse falls,
or is pushed down, when one man seizes
his head, auother the tail, and one
jumps on hm body to keep him from
floundering. The biisS puts the loop of a
line into tho horse's mouth and round
his lower jaw, then up over his head
and down through tho loop in his jaw,
so that by pulling the lino a double pur
chase is brought an tho mouth. This is
a bimnparte briale.
Such a purchase at the mouth with a
lino on a bind foot held by experienced
men readers it impossible for the aui
mal to go cUewhero t!n to the beach.
When there, two sailors, holding -tho
ends of a lino several fathom's long,
walk around him, folding tho repe about
his legs. Then by tightening this leg
rope and holding firm his other fusten-
ings tho horse quickly falls and is held
down by head and tail, while his legs
are tied together with Manilla brought
from tlie 6hip. A layer or two of this soft
rope lies between tlie fcet, so that strug
gling does not cause abrasion. Then,
Irelpless, the monarch lies broadside on
the soft sand. The bridle is removed,
the leg line, and the boys hurry back to
the corral, a quarter of a milo away.
