MRS. MINNIE LITTLE.
Modesty is the crowning virtue of American women. It Is the trait
that all mankind admires. A modest woman is the most pleasing of all
created thincs. Because of this becoming virtue thousands of women
prefer to suffer untold miseries rather than contide their troubles to a
physician, and to even think of submitting to an examination is revolt
ing. They can't get their own consent to an operation. Wine of Cardui
permits sensitive women to retain their modesty. With it they can cure
" female troubles" in the quiet of their own rooms. If special treatment
is required they can write to the Advisory Department of the Chatta
nooga Medicine Co., and their letters will be promptly answered by

Fire Chief Croker and Chief of Con
struction Kyau ot the New York lire
ilepartujf ht wjtuessed a builder's trial
the other 'night of tlie uev searchlight
engine which has been built for the de
partment ou tjlaus suggested by Chief
Croker. The engine was bunt in tl
uiira and arrived at New York a few
days ago. The trial was tuade In front
of the house of Hook and Ladder coui
t;auy 20 in Mercer street, just south of
Houston street, and lasted for about an
hour, says the New York Sun. After
watching the work of the new engine
none of the iircmen present doubted
that it would prove a valuable addi
tion to the fire fighting apparatus of
One of the searchlights was fitted
with a lens for dispersing its rays into
a loug parallelogram. AVhcn the light
from this was projected upon the front
of a building, it lit up the whole face
of the structure from the ground to the
fourth or fifth story, bringing into
sight every detail of the structure. The
value of this was shown particularly
when the rays fell upon buildings
which had fire escapes upon them. It
was evident that such a light would
enable the firemen to work as If In
daylight. The second searchlight was
fitted with only a plain glass, and its
rays cast a brilliant small circle of
light upon its object. The purpose of
this is to light the interior of buildings,
and it proved its ability to do this to
the satisfaction of all who saw it work
The light, passing into a window, lit
up the room behind as if an arc light
had suddenly been turned on Inside.
This part of the apparatus is expected
to prove of great value in lighting up
buildings to enable the Insurance pa
trol to cover up exposed goods with
celerity at the beginning of a fire, aid
the firemen in seeking for persons or
in exploring a building after a fire has
The lenses for making these changes
in the character of each light are car
ried separately and cnu be applied to
either projector. Double lenses can
also be applied to direct the rays into a
fipiare. which will cover a great amount
of surface or light up the whole width
of the street for a long distance to fa
cilitate work when the street lights are
cut on or in dark neighborhoods.
The two searchlights are both detach
able from the machine and coils of in
sulated cable, each '2'H) feet long, are
provided on two reels, which will make
it possible for the lights to be carried
to any place near the machine where
they may be the most useful.
The body of the machine is the same
as that ised in the smallest class of
-ngiues now furnished to the New
Y'ork fire department. Instead of the
engines and pumps for projecting a
stream of water a dynamo and the en
gine to drive it are provided, and the
two searchlights are mounted one on
each side of the front tf the upper part
of the engine just behind the driver's
seat. The searchlights and electrical
equipments were furnished by the Bul
lock company of New Y'ork city. The
lights are exactly the same as those
made fo.r the 1'nited States navy and
are made so that their rays can be pro
jected to any point around the ma
chine. Each Is of .. to caudle power,

Croker said, he would order about three

RELIGION IN THE TRANSVAAL
Religiose Spirit oC the Boers Xonr-
lahed by Old Testameat Stody.
The following translation from The
Lutherfsche Kirchenzeitnng by The
Literary Digest describes the religion
of the Boers In the Transvaal:
The state church of the Transvaal is
the Dutch Reformed, and to it belong
the greater portion of the population,
fqlly 50,000. The latest statistics ac
cessible give 18,100 adherents to other
branches of the Dutch church, 6,581
to the Episcopal (the flgare is now con
siderably higher). 3.S06 to the Wesley-
no Methodists, 3,000 to the Catholics
and 1,500 to other Christian denomina
tions. "These statistics are of the white

must belong to the l'rotestaut church,
The meetings of the volksraad, or par
liament, must, according to law. be
opened and closed with prayer. With
the exception of a few sitecial kinds of
labor it is strictly forbidden to do any
work on Sunday.
In general the Boers are characteriz
ed by a pronounced traditional piety
of the Reformed type. It is chiefly
nourished by the study of the Old
Testament, especially of the historical
books, and loves to employ and imitate
tlld Testament examples and pictures.
In a genuine Boer family the Bible lie3
upon the center table, and every day is
opened and closed with family prayer.
A collection of sermons is taken along
when on a journey, and public services
are attended regularly, even if great
sacrifice and trouble. As the farms
are large and the people" widely scat
tered public services can often be held
at Irregular intervals only, as one pas
tor often has charge of hundreds of
square miles of territory. Great Inter

falls to anneai. On such occasions a
Vast multitude of wagons surround the
church, and the celebration of the
Lord's supper is frequently followed by
serrices that last for several days. The
Boer regards himself as specially hon
ored if the dominie, for whom he has
great respect, visits his house. Then
the neighbors are called in, and public
services are held.
The orthodox Boers are divided into
two communions, the Afgeschedeue, or
Doppers, who in their' services make
use of no hymns but the Psalms and
who in general are of a stricter deport
ment than the second sect, who make
use of other hymns. President Kruger
belongs to the Doppers, and there can
be no doubt of his earnest Christian

Three important announcements
were made at the other day's session
of the convention of the scientific
men at New Haven. Professor T. p.
Aldrich of Detroit described his new
amusthetic, chloreutoue, a compound
from chloroform and acetone iu crys
tals, which can be aduiiuistered inter
nally. It produces amesthesia without
the injurious e licet s which come iu the

Jay W. Seaver exhibited to the meet
ing of the gymnasium directors a new
measuring instrument to determine to

Dr. W. J. Anderson urged the neces
sity of the appointment of a faculty
supervisor of athletics iu colleges,
such as Walter Camp is to be for
Y'ale," and also favored the require
ment of a careful medical examination
of all athletes while in training and
before every contest. Before the psy

Bcllevue hospital reported on experi

Training on General Ability."
They concluded that such training

which drill is given. Dr. Max Meyer
of New Y'ork presented "Elements of a
Psychological Theory of Music,' a new
musical method which depends on a
scale of 11 related tones. Processor
Sanford of the Y'ale department of mu
sic expressed himself as profoundly
interested in the working out of this
new theory. Professor W. S. Monroe,
before the Folklore society, traced
the "Counting Out Rhymes of Chil
dren" as survivals of the mumbled
charms of sorcerers among savage and
The conventions of all the scientific
associations closed the other day.
Seriona Trouble ot a Predatory Rac
A rather curious incident occurred at
the home of Levi Lee in New Augus
tine, Ha, the other night. He was
awakened from slumber, by unusual
noises from the direction of his pigpen.
There seemed to be a scuffle, accompa
nied by terrific squeals from the pigs.
Mr. Lee hastened to the spot, and as he
approached the pen he saw an Im
mense raccoon struggling through an
aperture in the fence, says the Florida
Times-Union and Citizen. The coon
could scarcely move, and upon investi
gation it was found that its hind quar
ters had been severed from the body.
The creature was soon put ont of mis
ery, and a further investigation reveal
ed the fact that the coon had been in a
fight with an old sow, which had par
tially eaten the smaller animal.
SCHOOL' SAVINGS BANKS.
Rock Islander Favors Introduction of One
In TbU City.
A Rock Inland bank attache, in talk
In to an Akgis reporter, said:
'I have noticed with much interest
and satisfaction the success with
which ebool savings banks have been
operated since their introduction in
this country in isso. Mrs. i. L.
Oberholtzer, jjensral superintendent
of. school savings banks, has said

As a nation, we know better how to
earn money than to save it, iu strong
contrast to the French, of whom it
has been said that it was from thq
stockings of the peasantry that she
paid her war indemnity. The difli
culty of teaching thrift to men and
women who are ignorant of !its lirst
essentials is great, but in children we
have unwrought material and can as
readily impress them indelibly with
the habit ot economy as with arithme
tic and geography; and realizing this,

Many temptations to wasteful expen

comes a habit that will prove invalu
able to them in after life, and more
firmly fixed than all the laws and
prophets could accomplish by preach
