We are reminded that this is still

Aunt Nancy's lifetime as during any

The large number of unaccounta

late are not flattering to human van

mankind and not be recognized after
he gets outside his immediate circle

large, and the average man is easily
lost in the crowd.

with fluency in Choctaw, Muskogee,
Natchez, Maya. Quiche, Arawack

body yet, and so in spite of his ac
complishments the American small
boy will continue to look upon him
with indifference, not to say disdain.

Bed hair, scientists say, is caused
by a superabundance of iron in the
blood. This it is that imparts the
vigor, the elasticity, the great vital
ity, the overflowing, thoroughly
lieal thy animal life which runs riot
through the veins of the ruddy haired,
and this strong, sentiment animal
life is what renders them inore!In
tenso in their emotions than their
languid fellow-creatures;. The. excess
of iron is also the cause of freckles ok
the peculiarly clear, white skin which
always accompanies red hair.

Square or s;atulated fingers, in the
science of palmistry, denote the
philosophical and practical tempera
ment. Taper finprers signify an artistic
temperament, and very pointed digits
are a sure sign of the dreamy, psychical
nature. Much is learned by the gen
eral quality aid configuration of the
hand and palm as well as by the lines
which crosi the latter. The life line
running arouni the base of the thumb
denotes long or short life, good or ill
health, accord ng as it is long or short,
clear and unbroken or otherwise. The
"heart line" running across the palm
nearest the bi,se of the fingers, signi
fies the quality of the possessor's emo
tional nature, also the kind of love she
will give and receive. This will be
enduring or lemporary according to
whether the line be long and clear,
forked or crossed and chained. Be
low this is the head line, which indi
cates the mental and moral qualities
and achievements and deficiencies.
The line of fa-e runs perpendicularly
across the mid lie of the palm and is a
very important factor in the happiness
or unhappincsi of its owner. It should
be clear and narrow, unchained and
uncrossed by the fine wrinkles which
score so many palms, and it should
never come t J an eill on the line of
the heart, sirce this signifies disap
pointment in love. A cross on the
"Mount of Mercury,' which is just at
the base of th. fore or index finger, is
an unfailing sign of a happy marriage."
A CIRL IN
A Couple of Mrauge Creatures Found
In the Juncles of India.
A highly respectable Indian gentle
man, a mcmb.T of the Bombay An
thropological tociety Mr. Sarat Chan
dra Mitra has come forward with an
apparently well authenticated story
of a girl who has been discovered in
Jalpaiguri in the den of a bear. The
young person's habits were decidedly
bearish, for she tried to bite and
scratch those who came near her,
went down "on all fours" for locomo
tion and '-growled at meals." The
orphanage of the New Dispensation
church, in Calcutta, could make noth
ing of the firocious foundling, who
has conseque ltly been removed to

Nor is this all. A Bhngal Zemindar
has captured in the junC'e a wiid boy,
whose only aj proach to speech is the
utterance of chattering sounds like
those of a mor key. Coionel Slee nan
and the Rev. Mr. Lewis, of the Seeun
dra church Mission, have vouched
for similar stories. Mr. Mitra
is of tue opinion that when,
as sometime happens, an in
fant is abandoned in the bush, there
is nothing absurd in the idea that it
might be adopted by a female wiid
animal that h:id lost her young.
A Rel.mtless Creditor.
A creditor seldom goes so far as to
seize a coflin a bout to be carried to the
grave. But this happened in the open
street in Berlin a few days ago, and
created considerable excitement and
great indigna-.ion. A cabinetmaker's
wagon had just stopped in front of a
house near the Alexander platz in the
German capital with a coflin for the
wife of a locomotive engineer who
had died. As the coflin was about to
be borne into the house an official of
the court appeared, placed his seal
upon the oaken box, and ordered it
transferred to the Berlin pawn office.
The official h id acted on behalf of a
relentl ess creditor. The engineer
pleaded in v:iin for the coflin. The
record failed to say whether he suc
ceeded in getting another.

and the daughter, realizing that she
would need a grave sometime, decided
that filling up the grave would be a
waste of good money, and ordered that
it be kept op n for her. When tiie

Experiment made by the scientists

IN PUGET SOUND.
A Paradise for Fishermen In Waters
Teeming With Life.
Puget Sound swarms with fish.
Wonderful stories are told of them.
So plentiful are the salmon that dur
ing the season when they are running
up the streams it is said they will
rush up a brook so thickly as to wedge
together and form a bridge that one
ean walk across. In jumping the falls
of small creeks they often lacerate
themselves terribly on sharp rocks.
Salmon is the favorite fish of that
country. Even the ladies like them.
One old fisherman down on the wharf
told how a lady up town had a pet
salmon. It stayed in a certain little
cove. During the rainy season the
lady would come each day to feed it
with bread. When she would start
back it would swim up the watery
streets and follow her home, then
swim down again to its little cove.
Very queer fish are caught in these
waters. One kind is called candle fish
It is dried and packed in boxes like
candles. We are told the fishermen
use them to light their homes, and
that at one time all the boats on the
sound used them instead of sperm-oil
lamps. By putting the heads of the
fish downward in a candlestick and
lighting the tail, w hich, in conjunction
with the backbone, acts as a wick, it
burns like a candle. They eat this
fish, and when cooking it is so fat it

A Reliable Druggist's Opin
ion of Kickapoo Indian
F. very Chemist, Every Botanist and every
physician who is unprejudiced recognizes
in the Kicknpoo Indian Remedies rare and
valuable qualities not possible to be found
in nny others.
They also recocmize the fact that the In
dians by their lfe, training and natural
knowledge, secure the very choicest kind of
roots, barks and herbs, gathered at the
right season and properly prepared to pre
serve their medicinal virtues.
No class of people in the world can com
pete witn the Indians in this particular.
That is why Kickapoo Indian Satrwaand
the other Kickapoo Indian Remedies al
ways give such satisfactory results.

Catarrh Causes it Stop
Mr. Peterson's ease illustrates the
danger of allowing these troubles to
run on, and should be carefully read
A very large per cent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inmr ears.
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Seott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca
tarrhal extension. It is folly to wait
for a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't get well, but always
gets worse, until frequently the hear
ing is entirely destroyed. A thor
ough course of treatment with a ca
paMe specialist, who goes right at
the cause of the trouble and removes
it. is the only hope.

Dr. Wilson has reported a case
like the foregoing, each week or two,
for the past three years in the tri
city papers. In the case of Mr.
Peterson. Dr. Wilson would state, he
lias lived in Hock Island county for
over 30 years. He is director" of a

connected with the Management of

and pictures of a number of minis

Dr. Wilson has noticed a senseless
tirade against him by a young firm

Some three weeks ago Dr. Wilson in
