QUEER EASTER CUSTOM.
Haw Filipino renlteats Severelr
One of tha many eurloii3 customs
practiced by some persons in the Fhil
ipplne Islands Is the way in which
they observe the week before Easter,
says tbe New York Tribune, for the
Thursday, Friday and Saturday before
Easter tbe streets or roads on the out
skirts of some villages and sometimes
the principal streets of the town Itself
are tilled with crowds who have come
to "see the natives Inflict self torture.
The willing victims are 6tripied to
the waist, their faces are covered with
a thick cloth, and around one hand Is a
heavy hemp rope, with a cluster of
from fifteen to twenty smaller hempen
cords. To each of these Is fastened a
smail piece of bard wood. The wbolo
thing Is Just long enough so that when
flung over tbe shoulder It will not quite
reach to the waist.
When the penitents are ready to
start out a Filipino who ba3 been ap
pointed as a sort of overseer takes the
flesh of the back between bis thumb
and first finger and cuts the skin with
a long bolo. This is done all over the
back. He then cries, "Alia, sigie" ("Go
ahead"). Then the penitent begins to
beat his back by lashing his cluster of
little pieces of wood and cords first
oTer one shoulder, then over the other,
until the back Is so lacerated that It
somewhat resembles raw beef. All the
while the onlookers and victims also
are singing or rather chanting a most
dismal, unearthly, funereal cLant.
Eatln FebblM After Dinner.
"You ask for candy and I give you a
stone," laughed a hostess at dinner the
other night, says a correspondent of
tbe New York Tress. Her feasts are
"known for having touches of originali
ty, and at this latest one she Intro
duced a novelty in sweets. They were
candy pebbles, and they occupied small
cut glass dishes in the center of the
table, to the exclusion of candled vio
lets or rose leaves. So close an Imita
tion were the "pebbles" that it seemed
they must l)e real. To make the Illu
sion stronger sea shells and ferns were
used as table decorations. The candies
are made In all the colors of pebbles
found along tbe seashore. Some are
a glistening white, some a dull cream,
others are gray, brown or sage green.
The pebbles are shaded as If the water
had worn them. They are filled with
a delicate, flowerlike confection. A
point In their favor is i that the surface

The hot bath Is useful for cleansing,
but it should not be takn too often,
and except for a medicine it should not
be pushed to any extent. It seems to
be weakening, quieting, depressing. It
may be used as a remedy .for a cold or
for such troubles as auto intoxication

relieved by abundant sweating. Dry or

Delmar' s "Records
Lou Dillon's Rival Showed
'Better Form Leading to -Memphis
Cup Race. -z.
The C. K. G. Billings-E. E. Sniathers
turf scandal has provoked probably the
most violent and vindictive controver
sy the American light harness world
bas ever known.
Challenges, "defis" and recrimina
tions are flying between the rival camps
with a rapidity that bewilders even
those most intimately concerned.
"Was Lou Dillon, l:5S'i. the world's
trotting champion, drugged at Mem
phis, and, if so, by whom?" is a ques
tion that bas been discussed by every
horseman In the country. Much evi
dence has been offered In favor of both
sides, and the final decision by the au
thorities Is awaited with consuming In
terest by millions of people.
Mr. Smathers' contention that Major
Delmar, 1 :5U. on actual form figured
to beat Lou Dillon is borne out In a
measure by the work of a leading Lex
ington (Ivy.) authority, who has com
piled the records of both sensational
In actual races, of course, Lou Dillon
cannot be compared with Major Del
mar. She never indulged In but two
contests with other horses, and both of
these were in the Memphis gold cup
against Major Delmar, In the first of
which she lowered "bis colors, and In
the last essay she was defeated by the
famous gelding. Her exhibition record
Is as follows:

In 1901 Lou Dillon, after the recov
ery from tbe sickness which attacked
her at Detroit in July, went eight pub
lie trials, averaging 2:02, her best
mile being at Memphis in November
after the now notorious cup race In
2:0iy. The best mile she showed be
fore the gold cup race In 1004 was far
6lower than her 1003 record.

"The Major outdid Lou Dillon in
miles in 2D2V4 or better in 1004." says
the compiler, "trotting nine such per
formances to her eight, and this gives
her the benefit of her Memphis mile In
2:014, which was disputed by many
prominent horsemen who timed the
performance and later exhibited their
watches to disprove it in other sections
of the country. The records of the
two in public exhibitions seem to
prove that Lou Dillon was at her best
in 1003, when she beat Major Delmar,
but when she faced bim In 1904 she
met a better horse. While her record
with the wind shield Is a second and
one-half faster than that to the credit
of Major Delmar, he, holds the same
record without the use of that appli
ance, and his mark of 2.-01 is beyond
question, whlje a shadow will always
hover over her performance.
"Delmar bas trotted four miles un
der 2:01, Dillon only three." He has
records of more miles in 2:03 or better
than any trotter that ever lived, and
taking time performances in actual
contests everything all together be is
easily the champion of trotting cham
pions." Glenwood M. Getting- Pat.
