KICKAPOO INDIAN SAG17A
ROOTS, BARKS AND HERBS,
The Astonishing Cures made by
this remedy are Genuine and Per
manent. They are not like the tem
porary stimulation made by mineral
medicines. Beware of all Mineral
Medicines ! Mercury has made
more Cripples than all the
Wars of the World Combined.
Quinine Never Cures, it only
Stimulates. What is the effect of
Quinine on the Human System ?
The moment you take Quinine
your ears begin to ''ring," Dizziness
follows. If its use is continued for
a length of time Your Hair Drops
Out, Your Teeth Become Loosened,
Your Bones Become as Brittle as
Chalk, and finally Insanity Follows.
Is that a safe medicine for you to
take into your system ? No ! Then
take Kickapoo Indian Sagwa for
your Chills and Malaria, the Simple
Product of the Fields and Forest.
The Remedy which Never Fails and
Could Not possibly Contain these
Harmful Mineral Toisons because
their use is Utterly Unknown to
the Indians, who Make this Remedy.

EVILS OF TRAVELING.
A.N ENGLISHMAN FINDS MANY ANNOY
ANCES IN AMERICA.
Bow Strange rm Especially Travelers From
England. Aro Swindled In Many of Our
Ijtrger Cities Cab Fares and Sleeping
Although Mr. Rudyard Kipling; may
have a Rood deal to say for bis peculiar
view of American society, the real truth is
that England and America can learn a good
many things from each other. English
men are not all millionaires, and nobody
quite likes to be openly swindled.
On the ' Atlantic the traveler is safe
enough. Travel nowadays on board those
ocean greyhounds is simply a luxury. But
the moment foot is set on shore the stranger
experiences that he is in a new country,
where things are not exactly as they are
at home. An Englishman's first instinct
on arriving at the conclusion of a journey
is to call a cab. He bad better not indulge
this fancy in New York. A passenger ar
riving by any of the liners at Liverpool
would at once secure his luggage, have it
conveyed to a cab, tip the porter and on
being set down at bis hotel would pay the
cabman, say. half a crown. They manage
things otherwise in New York. Heavy lug
gage must, in the first place, be "expressed"
at a charge of Is. Gd. each package. If there
are ladies in the party, t his item may mount
up to something considerable.
Off you go in a ramshackle equipage
with an Irish driver, possessing none of the
fun of the old country. On arriving at the
hotel you ask what the fare amounts to.
And then the Knglishman's gore rises.
He is accustomed to stepping into a Lon
don hansom and driving a longer distance
for a florin. Hut the Hibernian charioteer
gravely calls for $3. $4 or $5, just according
to the humor he may be in. And it has to
be paid. The result is that when the trav
eler finds himself in his room it has prob
ably taken 25 shillings to convey himself
and his luggage from the landing place to
the hotel. This of course is simply a gor
geous swindle. And the way to avoid it is,
fortunately, equally simple.
The Americans travel with a single big
trunk. Everything goes into it as into a
handbag. This Noak's ark can be "ex
pressed" at the same charge as a dressing
case. And this done. Uncle Sam makes for
the street car and reaches his hotel for 5
cents. This is the way to do it, but it is lit
tle short of a scandal that the law should,
not protect strangers.
As to hotels, something pleasant and un
pleasant may be said. In all the cities
these establishments are of the mort pala
tial character and are conducted on both
the American and European plans. No one
should enter a house conducted on both
plans. Should he do so the experience of
our party may be his. We had written
ahead to secure rooms on the American
plan at one of the Fifth Lvenne hotels. Tht
charge was 5, or 1, per day. Arriving
late at night, we were "skied" in a garret.
Judge of our surprise when on entering
the dining room we were calmly informed
that no food was supplied on the American
plan after 8 p. m., and that if one desired
to have supper it should be served on the
European plan. In other words, were ex
pected to pay 1 a day for board and lodg
ing on the American plan and pay for our
supper in cash because the Boston train
happened to lie Intel This of course was
sheer impertinence. But we had to submit.
It was too late to go elsewhere. At another
of these gorgeous establishments we expe
rienced another piece of sharp pract ice. The
terms were $7.50 per day or 30 shillings each
person.. But on our arrival we stepped into
the wrcng room for luncheon i. e., into
the room for visitors on the European plau
The bill had to be paid in cash, and we had
the extreme satisfaction of jiaying lis. Gd.
for two luncheons, in addition to a charge
of 30 shillings per day. These are samples
of the impudent swindles that await the
traveler whois not prepared for them. The
only safe plan therefore is to go to a house
conducted on either one plan or the other.
1 have said that the American hotels aro
gorgeous palaces, but they sadly lack the
homely feeling of the English home. They
seem to he huge rabbit warrens. They are
the saddest and dulle st places in the world.
Hut, is a rule, the accommodation and the
food are excellent.
As regards railway traveling, somethings
are better than at home, and others are
worse. The rate of traveling is mostly
slower, and the cost less than in England.
But the cars are infinitely lietter, and trav
eling is, on the whole, pleasantt r but for
the heat. This is largely caused by the fact
that the porter is generally a negro, and he
heats the train up to his own ideas of com
fort, but it is not pleasant for an ordinary
Englishman to swelter in a car with the
thermometer at 7.1 degrees or 80 degrees and
then go out into an atmosphere below freez
ing point, or even below zero. The night
traveling also shocks a stranger. In Eng
land there are Indies' sleeping ears. No
such thing ever occurred to the American
mind. Men and women shake down "pro
miscuous," and are curtained off in a kind
of sealed compartment.
I confess to a preference for the English
fashion, although Air. Hannibal Chollop
would, I suppose, have sneered at my prej
udices as "European." But the Americans
can give us points in regard to dealing with
luggage. It is something to hand your lug
gage to the hotel porter, to receive from
him at the railway station brass checks for
it, to give these checks to a collector on
arrival, and to find, for a small charge, your
luggage at the hotel almost as quickly as
yourself. Why English railway companies
do not adopt this ;lan of dealing with lug
gage pannes comprehension. There is
hardly such a thing as a railway porter in
the states. Then the dining car is a real
work of art. It is a luxury to be able to
get a comfortable meal excellently served
without rushing to refreshment rooms and
eating at a rate ruinous to digestion and to
health. Some time or another, I suppose,
John Bull will wake up.
In the matter of street cars the mother
country is also- sudly behind. In Boston,
Washington, Moutreal, Toronto and other
cities the electric street cars are one of the
chief means of rapid transit. But hero
again there is the fly in the ointment. An
American car is never i full that it will
not hold one more. The passengers crowd
the cars, stand on the platforms and hang
on to the steps. It is the American way of
doing things, and this settles the question,
but I prefer the English car, with only its
allotted number of passengers. London

poor, misguided English woman to a Lon

I am tall and rather inclined to stoutness,
though I never let my waist exceed 17 inches

me in to 15 inches if I have no breakfast,
but I cannot walk outdoors. The feeling is
delicious, though painful, when I sit in a
drawing room. I cannot eat, of course, but

Da. G. C Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I em acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of thevarious quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
Uiem to premature graves."

I recommend it as superior to any preacripUon

' Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence In their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among our
medical supplies what is known at regular
products, yet we are free to confess that tbs
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."
