Pirofossor William Watts, assistant

aban Joned many months before Wo
had proceeded but a few fect into
the inky darkness of tho tunnel when
I, being in tho lead, struck a match
to light a candle. Xo sooner had
the light flared ngt than I heard tho
warning of a rattlesnake and saw a
big fellow coiled up at my fect ready
to strike, whilo further on I saw nu
merous other squirming reptiles.
Tho match dropi'.cJ from my hand as
I jumped back several feet.

I had landed directly upon tho second

the whole place seemed alivo with

by their incessant angry rattling was
frightful. Wo got out all right, but
wero badly scared. Later u party
was formed to exterminate the big
nest of snakes, and largo numbers of
them were killed. The unused tunnel
was just the place f.ir them to spend
the winter months comfortably." Pro

and ho might also only fire a few

Journeya of Kxplorcr In That Little
Captain Bower, the Thibetan ex
plorer, has arrival in London with a
mass of valuable information con
cerning that little-known country,
which ho has collected primarily for
the benefit of the Indian government.
In tho course of fifteen months of
travel across the wildest part of the
country he learnol many curious and
interesting facts about tho inhabi
tants. His journey was made during
1891 and 1392, and his. route was al
most due west to cat, starting from
Leh or Lodak and ct'sufng the track
of some other explorers who had tra
versed the country from north to
south. He crossed, among others,
tho route followed by M. Bonvalot,
the French explorer, and his compan
ion, Prince Henry of Orleans, but,
liko all other travelers in recent
times, ho found it impossible to enter
Lhaasa Ills nearest point was about
150 miles from tho holy city. The
priests are practically supreme in tho
country, but nowhoro did ho meet
with hostile treatment from tho
natives. The Sikkim war has had a
wholesome clTect, a id tho Englishman
traveling in Thibet is now in no dan
ger. Some idea of the difficulties and
hardships of the journey may be
gathered from the fact that much of
the road was from fifteen to eighteen
thousand feet above the level of tho
sea. and that for weeks together ho
and his companions did not meet a
single human being.

From a letter written by Mrs. Ada
E. Hurd, of Groton, S. D., we quote:
Was taken with a bad cold, which
settled on my lungs. Cough set in
and finally terminated in consump
tion. Four doctors gave me up, say
ing I could live but a short time. I
gave myself up to my Saviour, deter
mined if I could not stay with my
friends on earth, I would meet my
absent ones above. My husband was
advised to get Dr. King's Xcw Dis
covery for Consumption, Coughs and
Colds. I gave it a trial, took in all,
eight bottles: it has cured me, and
thank God I am now a well and
hearty woman. Trial bottles free at
