On one occasion, Mr. Coosens states in
Ms report, he discovered a neat little slab
representing two elephants fighting. It
was naif buried in tbe mud bank of the

this done, they discovered another slab, a
most interesting sculpture, representing
the Hoyaala king slaying tbe tiger, as de
scribed in Fleet's "Dynasties of the Kana
zesfi BistricU." The villagers, however,
represented that the removal of the slabs
meant disaster to themselves. Once before
When a chief removed slabs a village was
burned, and a European who took away
something died suddenly.
The elephants were left, bat the king and

How tbe Church Cared Exeeselve Faith.
Besides condemning magic ttw church
further attempted to direct the excessive
faith In the supernatural into higher chan
nels. Instead of invoking Juno Lucina and
other heathen demons the young mother
was encouraged to repeat the eighteenth
psalm and to think ot the wonderful deliv
erance of St Margaret when swallowed by
Satan in the form of a dragon. Did a man
suffer from toothache or colic or pains in
the backr Let him, instead of decking
MmBfilf with pagan amulets, consider how
much greater pain of those various kinds
was endured by St. Apollonia when all her
teeth were knocked out; by St Erasmus
when bis bowels were torn from his living
body, or by St Lawrence when he was
roasting on the gridiron.
And in his prayers for health he would
naturally introduce the names of those holy
martyrs or of other saints who were simi
larly connected with other iHshmwi, with a
firm faith in their effectual intercession.

KIT CARSON IN ITS PRIME.
It Had Seven T'.iousind Hustling; Citizens
Where Now bat Hundred Remain.
'In 1S70 yon uiig'it have traveled 1,000
nJles and not have 1 ottnd as lively a town
as Kit Carson, Colo.," said Station Agent
Billy Dunaway the other day as the Kan
sas Pacific train lingered before the sta
tion house at the r.ow quiet little town
On Big Sandy creek in eastern Colorado.
"This was then the terminus of the Den
ver line of the TJiion Pacific, and you
can just bet the c;onp was a hammer.
There were over T.tOO people here, and a
payer crowd you m ver saw. The popu
lation was made up of railroad men,
cowboys, male Btii ners, gamblers and a
"The latter was Rometirnes lonely, but
the 6,999 other people in camp were fair
ly sociable and managed to have a mod
erately good timo, and everything ran
wide open, and in the palmiest days of
the camp there were 47 saloons, 7 dance
halls, 2 theaters an 1 all the other things
necessary to the lubrication of existence
in the gay and bounding west. For two
years things were redhot, with fights,
shooting matches and lynching bees near
ly every night.
"Some of the ol 1 time engineers who
were jerking steal a over the line then
say a regular daily news item in railway
circles for awhile was to the effect that
a man or two had been hung the night
before to the bridg j on tho fUndy. The
lynching of a man for muJier was an
unusual event, bu dire vengeance was
wreaked on the petty burglar, horae
thief or other unprincipled offender who
did not have the nerve to shoot, bat
sneaked around af er dark to do his ne
farious work. Waen dealing faro, the
gamblers preserved peace and quietude
in the game by wearing two 6-shooters
silently swinging from their belts, and
when in a game f 'stud' the pack was
always secured from being blown away
by one of these same free moral agents.
Some stiff games were played in those
days, and when a cowboy came in oS
the roundup, or when the freighters
came in from a long trip off to Mexico
and Arizona, or pay day on the line
came along, money was stacked a foot
high on the cloth.
"After the camp had been running in
this way for two years the road was put
on through to D nver, and the crowd
followed. Where once you could see
over 7,000 people there are now a hun
dred or so, and ail that remains of the
former glory of this namesake of old
Kit Carson is tho nameless barnyard
you see up there on the hill, a lot of
broken beer bottles and desertion."
A Disturber at m Rehearsal.
Julius Eichberg writes: "At the occa
sion of a musical festival in Du&seldorf
I witnessed a seen j that produced gen
eral and not un; ustifiable excitement
among those preseat. It was at the last
rehearsal of Beethoven's ninth or choral
symphony, and tha great hall was filled
with people from near and far anxious
to hear the then but little known work.
While the orchestra played the first
movement we noticed a dark bearded,
spectacled, middle aged man in the au
dience, who had a score before him and
was gesticulating wildly, being evident
ly very much dissatisfied with the per
formance. Suddenly he arose, advanced
toward the orchesl raand began to shout:
" 'This is all wrong. It was not thus
that my immortiJ friend, Beethoven,
wanted his masterpiece to be played
Yon ought to play it much slower, and
in this way.' He liegan to beat time vig
orously to the afitf nished musicians, en
tirely ignoring Mendelssohn, who con
ducted the symphony. At this moment
several people forcibly ejected the dis
turber from tho hi .11. The man was the
well known Professor Anton Schindler.

last years of his life and the author of a

Leo par 1 Shooting.
Mr. Simson writ es thus: 'I consider
that exposure to a leopard on foot, with
due precaution and a proper weapon, is
only a fair sporting risk, and accidents
must hapi)i occssionally." Mr. Sim
son is certainly entitled to speak. He
shot many leopa-ds on foot; he was
twice badly wounded by a leopard, but
on one of these occasions a third leopard
unexpectedly attacked him from behind,
when he had alre:uly killed two others
in the same patch of grass jungle.
Mr. Simson mentions that an old
French gentleman whom he knew used
to go about hunting for leopards with a
nondescript sort of dog, half pariah and
half spaniel. "When the dog smelled a
leopard, he wouhl xxk his ears and point
out from a respectful distance where the
leopard lay. The Frenchman kept on
peeping and peering about, wholly re
gardless of anything the leopard might
do in the way of attack, till he could
Eight the animal. He then killed him
almost to a ccrtaii ty with a single shot"

A Parsee'a Benefaction.
It was Sir Jamesetjee Jeejeebhoy who
Bret made the Parsee name famous in
Europe for philanthropy more than a
generation ago. His younger contem
porary, Sir Cowasjee Jehanghir, carried
on tho tradition, but both have been
eclipsed by the present head of the Par
see community at Bombay, Sir Dinshaw
Manockjee Petit. The total of that gen
tlemau's benefactions reaches an enor
mous sum, probably not much less
than 500,000 sterling, and the Bombay
papers inform us that he recently gave
a fresh proof of his philanthropy on the
occasion of three of his grandchildren
being invested with the sacred thread
a ceremony which corresponds to out
baptism or confirmation.
At this ceremony he had the co-operation
of Bal Dinbai, the widow of his
brother, Mr. Nnsserwanjeo Petit, who
has herself distributed in charity einee
her husband's death a year ago nearly
80,000 of English money. The mem
bers of the Petit family. If honor of this
special event, gave nearly 5,000 for
beneficent objects, among which the

there were about S00 Swedes who had

every one of them was dead and buried.
There wero five Chinamen employed on
the works, and, strange to say, not one
of them was attacked. They enjoyed

escaped I never knew, but one of the

reason was because they smoked ciga

Timely Advice to Many.
A writer in The Engineering Magazine
warns us all to determine before going
to the World's f air whether we are phys
ically able to go. In short, consult your
physician and get the benefit of a special
examination. The advice is well given,
for there's nothing more exhausting to
body and mind than a week or two of
frantic, ill considered sightseeing. It's
better not to so the lair and live than
to see it and die.
