some tiroeainre, but bad stubbornly fought
down tb suspicion, though my horse evi
dently realized. With patient endurance
ne pioaaea along, resignation plainly ex
pressed in tbe droop of his tail and ears.
in place of the ranch, the hearty welcome,
pleasant words, bed, supper and fire I had
expected to reach by sunset, there was
nothing to be seen before, behind, on either
band, but the dead level of the -plain.
There were paths in pleuty; in fact, the
trouble was there were too many all nar
row and winding, for whose meandering
there seemed not t be slitrbteHt excuse, ex
cept the general tendency to crookedness
most thinsr, animate and inanimate, alike
possess. Hut it would hare taken the in
stinct of a bloodhound nr a trailing Indian
to have said which paths had heen made
by horses' feet or those of cattle.
Now that the sun was gone, I found my
knowledge of the point of the compass
gone with It. As 1 sat perplexed and wor

and the chill of coming r-iin smote me
throngh and throng-, wliilc in the distance
there was the roll of thunder.
A SPIKIT APPEARS.
It was now quite dark, and very dark at
that, though at short intervals close to the
horizon a faint gleam of lightning showed,
too distant to coitt brightness on my path

All at once 1 saw a man walking about
fifteen feet in front of me. Yes, I know

of me, and, furthermore, I could see that
be was a large man, dressed in rough but
well fitting clothes; that be wore a heavy
red beard, and that he looked back at me
from time to time with an expression of
keen anxiety on his otherwise relaxed feat
"Hallo!'' I cried, but as he did not halt I
concluded be did not hear me. As a second
bail produced no remit I spurred my weary
horse up to overtake the stranger. But,
though the gray responded with an alac

Then I began to wonder how, with the

the details of bis dress, and even the ex

We went on in sileuce for nearly half an
hour, when, as suddenly as be had appear
ed, he was gone. I looked around for him,
hnlt xfraid, from bis instant and complete
dlsapiamnce, that I had been dreaming,
when I perceived that I was close to a
-mall, low building of some sort. I reined
In and shouted teveral times, but not the
slightest response could I hear, and at last
I rode boldly up and tapped on the wall
with the butt of my riding whip. Then,
as this elicited no sigu of life, I concluded
that I bad stumbled on some deserted
house or that it was the abode of my ec
centric friend; so, dismounting and tying
tbe gray, I resolved to spend the rest of
the night under a roof or to Und some good
reason for continuing my journey.
I felt my way along the wall till I
reached a door, and trying this and finding
that it yielded to me, I stepped inside,
trikln? a match as I did so. Fortunately,
I curried my matches in anuir tight case,
and a it was dry the one I struck gave me
a light at once. I found myself in a large
room close to a fireplnce, over which a rude
shelf was placed, ami on this mantel I saw
an Oil lamp to which I applied my match.
On the henfi'i :rvs tespfu fluaiitity of

room, which was plainly and scantily fur-

raisen tne lamp I saw that be was the same

thing iu his attitude and face that struck
me ns peculiar, and I was about to go for

had nt first seemed dazed at the light, fair

I ran my hand into my pocket and drew
forth what had been a paper lag of choco

but dead, long dead.
I took his hand only to find it stilT and
cold, while his face had the dull gray as
pect never seen in the newly dead. As I
stood gazing down on him a little hand
"Nelly so hungry:" said the child.
"Have yon eat.:n all the candyf" I asked

The house, which consisted of the large
room, a smaller kitchen and a shed, where
1 found a quantity of hay and fodder,
seemed quite bare of food, but t.v dint of

in it two fit-sl, es. These I boiled for

to sleep on a lied I made for her before the

well as I could a service for the dead.

pie In Savoy and t he Tyrol are worst af
flicted with this complaint. Itissupposed
that the water they drink, derived from
the melting of the glaciers of the Alps,
causes the hypertrophy of the thyroid
gland, the result of which is an enormous
swelling, so that sometimes the unfortur
nate comes to have a baglike appendage
dangling down as far as the waist. There
is do known cure for tbe trouble after it
has got well started, though the swelling
may be a trifle reduced by injections into
its substance. It is a very curious .fact
that if a human being or any other animal
is deprived of this apparently useless gland
by cutting it out, there always follows a
general degeneration of all the tissuea of

a secretory organ.
"Then there is the mysterious 'verm

some such thing gets into it, and causes
inflammation. L ntilwithiu the lust ton
or five years such cases were always fatal,
but now they are usually cured by cutting
open the stomach and removing the ap--pendix.
I'ntil very recently operations re
quiring the cutting open of the body in
this way invariably resulted iu death, for
the reason that germs could not be pre
vented from getting into the wound and
creating subsequent inflammation, liu
the bacteriologists have taught, through
their researches, how such germs may be
killed by spraying with antiseptic soln
tions. The vermiform appendix has con
siderable usefulness among the lower am

The traveler is asked oil kinds of questions

lamentable ignorance is displayed by the
Germans about tbe distant eouutrv.
case in point is related by a NV- Yorker
who spent some time one summer in a vil
lage iu Hanover, at some distance from

be bad met at llerliu in the university doyi

Luie aiternoon tno plivsklnii. accom

to visit a sick child. When he alighted
the Americau remained in the vehicle. In
the course of his call the physician hap
pened to mention that his companion was
from the United States. As they drove
away nu old lady rushed out of the house,
gesticulating wildly and calling on them
to stop. They did this, and she ran up, all
out oi nreatb, snontmg:
How is mv son He is in America."
She did not hear of the New Yorker's na
tionality until after the physician left tbe
bouse, and ran to make inquiry about her
son, who had been in America for fifteen
years. The woman had received no word
from or about him for several years. She
thought, of course, that every onein Amer
ica knew every one else there. The for
eigner had much difficulty in explaining
that he had never heard of her son. who
was in Minnesota when he wrote bis last

IIOW THE TERM WAS APPLTCfc ...
The term "medicine" is a while man's
txpression which the Indiaus have adopted,
ft was applied to the priests of the tribes
for that is what they really are-s-becausc
tbe first white nutn Kten fc-nnd tbem mak
ing their incantations at tbe side of the
sick, the wounded or the dying.- Li reality
they were exorcising the evil spirits ot dis
ease or death, but tbe white travelers, see
ing them in the presence of the lick, put
two and two together aud calbM them
medicine men. The term is two centuries
old, and the Indians have so fully adopted
it that when one of these officials fat at bis
offices they say be is "making medicine."
The medicine man is a conjurer, a magi
cian, a dealer in magic, and an intermediary
between the men of this world and tbe
spirits of the other. He may know some
thing of tbe rude pharmacopoeia of Lis
fellows, and may prescribe cert -go !eavi-s
or roots to allay fever, to arrest jj cold, or
to heal a wound. That is uot h jsiness,
however, and such prescriptions ale more

Asa people tbe Americans are the Tidi
est in 1 he world. Money is more easily ac
quired here than anywhere else, and it is
likewi-e more liberally spent. What are
considered moderate fortunes here are in
other l inds regarded as stupendous aggre
gatlonn of wealth. There are no such op
portunities of making money in other
countr es as in this, and therefore it may
be expected that the number of American
millionaires will be multiplied and the

It is trident that rba makers of America

from taking an active part in the legisla

Australia of the Future.
I confess that when I consider this
cbarmint; young nation, with iu romantic
past and its most attractive future prospect-,
I feel a little thrill compare bin to that
with whi ;h I watched the fortunes of the

surprises must its life be so splendid in
IU ventui-es. In its fearlessness, in its joy
ous seek) lg of dangers, in its bold plunges
into mid ur. in its enjoyment of tbe calm
prosperity of peaceful moments, and in its
ceaseless irngresa to new adventures and
conflicts. Its future is hidden, like the
atream in the forests at the bottom of the
gorge, bu . the sea is far away still for tbe
young ro mntain torrent; and the long
course is i nil of fair scenes and great ex

Tb" chewing gum buhioess U-gan on a
small scale some thirty years n-o. It was
then manufactured and used principally
in New England. This article was made
from the gum of the spruce tree. Another
kind of gum was and is m.-ule from paraf
flne. There was a prejudice at first against
manuf.iLtureil chewing gum, and years
ago children wr-re told thai th?- stuff was
m-ide of "tiigers' heels.'.'
The raw m.-tUTiivJ of chewing gum made
toUay comes f nun tfio Mexican chlclezapote
tns;. That is the- stuff "tuiti fintti" !s
made of. The Mry runs that n YanVve
by the name of Ail-mis imported the Mexi
can gum to bnvr ir. take t he place of gutta
percha or soft roh-r, but the experiment
failed. Acchk-ntHUy lie broke off a bit of
the stuff and chewed it. That gave to
him the notion of m.-.iur-icttmng the sub
stance into chew ing gum. The business is
now housed in a six story building and
gives employment to over &V) Ksonlo.
The Way to Pack Apples.
Passing through Washington market, 1
noticed a man in one of the big commission
stores packing apples in a barrel. What
(truck me as being decWedly peculiar about
this ordinarily commonpluceoperatioii was
the fact that be picked out tho biggest
apples and put them in th lwtrom of the
barrel. "Why do you put 1 be big ones ia
the bottom?" T inquired with no little curi
osity. He gave me a knowing wink as he
replied: "Ob. they open the barrels at tbe
bottom nowadays. " Xo further explin.i

It is a Mistake
To try to cure catarrn by using local ap
plications. Catarrh is not a local but a
constitutional disease. It is not a dis
ease of the man's noee, but of the man.
therefore, to effect a dure, requires a
constitutional remedy likei Hood's Strss
parilla, which, acting through the blood,
reaches every part of the system, expel
ing the taint which causes tbe disease
and imparting health.
