The Coroner's Two Verdicts.
"Inquests are sometimes very funny
affairs," remarked a western man.
remember one In the early days of my
county In Kansas. A man was found
dead by the side of a small stream out
on the prairie. No mark was found
on his well dressed body. Ills gun
was fully loaded in his hip pocket, and
$25 was found In bis pocketbook. Of
course the coroner took charge of the
money. A jury was impaneled and
after finishing its deliberations found
that the man clearly died of heart fail
The coroner promptly paid from the
dead man's pile the $12 due for ex
penses and discharsed the Jury. The
$13 Remaining bothered him. He ar
gued that to turn that $13 over to the
county, to be held In trust for the
man's possible relatives, would be the
same as throwing it away. The man
was a stranger in those parts. Possi
bly be had no friends. -
The coroner was equal to the occa
sion, however. He declared himself
dissatisfied with the verdict and. call
ed the jury together again. They, sat
on the body 3 second time and found
exactly the same verdict, but the coro
ner's mind was at ease. The $25 was
exhausted." Washington Star.
French Savant Hunt For Microbes.
The microbe hunter frequently makes
himself unpopular, and bis room is gen
erally considered more desirable than
bis company. Such is the case with
an enterprising savant of the French
Academy of Medicine who Is now mi
crobe bunUng in the theaters of Paris.
This. Nimrod, according to the Paris
Messenger, goes Into a theater during a
performance and installs himself in a
box with his assistants and bis appa
ratus. Between the acts the audience
bears a buzzing noise, and for a few
moments there Is considerable commo
tion. The spectators think something
has gone wrong, and the manager of
the theater works himself Into fever
heat. When the savant is satisfied
with his bag, his assistants pack up the
apparatus, and the party leaves the
theater. It is said that when the the
aters have been exploited the churches
will receive attention.

WHAT MODERN SAILORS FEAR
Kot Winds and Seas, bnt an Explo
sion "Which Scuttles the Ship.
"Boiler explosions are the terror of
the Beafaring man," said a old time
deep water captain. "Such a thing is
bad enough on dry land, but Imagine a
catastrophe of that kind at sea. In
ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it
means the absolute wiping out or the
craft itself and every eoul on board.
The average laudsman would be
creatlv shocked In looking over the
maritime records to see how many ves
sels disappear each year and leave
absolutely no clew to their fate. They
run well up to the hundred mark, and
such a mystery is not to be explained
away by storms. A Chinese typhoon
may swoop down like lightning out of
a clear sky and tear a ship to pieces,
but some floating wreckage is sure to
tell the tale. A boiler explosion, on the
contrary, will blow a bole as big as a
railroad tunnel right through the center
of the hull, and the stricken vessel
simply goes down like a shot. There
Is no time to unfasten a boat from the
davits or cut loose a spar.
. "In the opinion of seamen, that Is
the story of at least 90 per cent of the
ships that leave port and are never
heard of again. Luckily the modern
system of marine boiler inspection
Is extremely strict and thorough, but It
Is Impossible to absolutely prevent
carelessness and fraud, and often
enough, no doubt, the fault lies with
"There is an old Ptory of a drunken
Scotchman who. mistook the ther
mometer for the steam gage and 'cuss
ed ouf the 6tokers because be couldn't
get the pressure above 80. That yarn
will hardly hold water, but I've seen
cases almost as bad. I am glad to say,
however, that during the past 10 years
there has been a steady diminution of
the number of vessels which 'mys
teriously disappear.' That is due, be
yond nil question, to the Increased
stringency of boiler Inspection and the
greater Btrictness of examinations be
fore a license Is issued to engineers,
Nevertheless there Is still considerable
room for improvement In both
branches." New Orleans Times-Demo

E B. Munday, a lawver of Henri
etta, Texas, once fooled a grave-dig
ger. He says: "My brother was
very low with malarial fever and
jaundice. I persuaded him to try
Electric Bitters, and he was soon
much better, but continued their use
until he was wholly cured. I am
sure electric Bitters saved his life."

Ivy, and all noxious plants. It is com
posed exclusively of roots and herbs. Now
is the time to get the poison out of your
system, as delay makes your condition
worse. Don't experiment longer with
sal ves, washes and soaps they never cure.
Mr. S. M. Marshall, bookkeeper of the Atlanta
(Ga.) Gas Litrht Co.. was ooiaoned with Poison
Oak. He took Sulohur. Arsenic and various
other drugs, and applied externally numerouf
lotions and salves with no benefit. At times the
swelling and inflammation was so sever he wn
almost blind. For eight years the poison would
break otit every season. His condition was much
improved after taking one bottle of S. S. 8., and
a few bottles cleared his blood of the poison, and
all evidences of the disease disappeared.

knowing when or how. Explain your case
fully to our physicians, and they will
cheerfully give such information and ad
