To Keep Healthy and Strong.
A healthy appetite and common sense
are excellent guides tO follow in mat

fruits and meats is undoubtedly the
bTh,t, in spite of the claims made by
vegetarians and food cranks generally.
As compared with atains and veg

says: Nervous persons, people run d-own

From The Nineteenth Century.
Locking round one Sunday in July
upon the huge audience, chiefly com
posed of Germans and Americans of the
ower middle class, as they giggled and
whispered or stared about them ob
viously indifferent and genuinely bored,
one felt it was a matter of wonder why
they were there at all. In spite of the
admirable arrangements for the orderly
conduct of the play and the comfort of
the visitors, the audience were by no
ineans settled in their seats when the
gun was fired and the chorus walked
on to the stage, and an effort was made
ta obtain silence. Those who had en
tPred the building, from the left when
their seats were on the right, and vice
versa, were still walking about, refusing
to believe they could not get to their
seats without going Gut again and re
entering the theater by the proper door.
Others carne in late, 8.nd this was an
unpardonable offense, causing in each
ease a whole row to rise and block out
thp view of the tableaus, which were
surficiently fleeting. without any such
interruption. These disturbances met
ith the expressions of annoyance
which they undoubtedly merited, but
angry hisses and exclamations were
hardly the evidences of an appropriate
spirit in which to watch the calm en
durance of suffering which was present
ly to call forth a. dumb and silent sym
pathy from all earnest witnesses. But
from beginning to end a- devotional
spirit. or even a spirit of reverence,
never breathed its softening' influence
over that crowded house, and when the
doors were threwn open In the middle
and at the close of the play a,ny con
straint that there had been was gone
immediately, and, like a. kettle of boll

-nt-up steam escaped. and laughing-,

Boston, Jan. 7.Bohby Walthour of At
lanta Saturday night won the interna
tional six day bicycle race in Park Square
Garden in one of the most hair-raising
finishes ever seen. William Stinson, the
hour champion, clossed the tape second
twenty feet back. with McEachern a
ciose third. McLean wail fOUrth, Fikkeher
fifth, Kaeser sixth and Doaney seventh.
The official distance was Low miles and 2
laps.
The itit few trines of the race lacked
elements of the pace that kills until the
pistol rang out for the final Val
thour was then leading. closely pressed
by Mchiachern, who took the lea,d, only
to be passed by Kaeser on the first lap.
The Canadian then shot to the lead and
the men tore around the track like de
mons. The lead Wail changed nearly
every lap. On the tirst turn of the lap
Walthour made a. sensational jump and
got a. lead of forty feet over McEachern,
which he held to almost the end.
STINSoN FINISHES SECOND.
McEachern was so nearly killed off In
the final mile that just before the finish
Stinson, who had kept well up, shot out
into the four and headed the Canadian
by more than four feet at the tape. '
The story of the last afternoon and
early evening of the race is one of a
steady grind, each one of the seven lead
ers watching with eagle eye his oppo
nents to see that no sly trick was turned
by which a lap would be gained. - As 10
o'clock approached this nerve-straining
tension put the riders on the keenest edge.
But the, shouts of encouragement from
friends and admirers among the 15.000 per
SOMA present was a tonic to the mos,t ex
cited of the bunch. Even -with the slow
pace--about seventeen miies to the hour
that the riders ground out from 7 until
nearly 10 the crowd found plenty to cheer,
and the scene was inspiringthat is.
what could be seen trirough the dense
cloud of smoke that rose from the 5,00
people inside the oval of the track.
At 9:15 City Inspector of Buildings Dam
reit ordered the doors closed, and no
more were admitted. At that time the
place a-as cro-wded almost to suffocation.
The first sensational sprint of the even
ing came at 9::Z, when Oscar Babcock
came down off the high bank at the north
end of the building like a thunderbolt
from a clear sky, and in a twinkling had
over a. lap lead.
BABCOCK. STARTS SPRINTING.
The bunch was making slow time and
Babcock's terrific pace gained him a lap
in three circuits of the track. Babcock
being four laps behind at the time and
not a dangerous rival, little attention was
paid to this spurt by the other riders, but
to the spectators it was just the thing to
start up the roars of cheers that were
almost continuous from that time until
the close. Right after this, Harry Elkes
was sent an exhibit:on mile behind a mo
tor machine, which be worked out in
7:45 1-5.
At 9:40 'Muller. the partner of Babcock
in the "also ran" class. went out for a.
gain and made his lap without opposition.
At 9:50 Babcock started for an attempt
at petit larceny of a lap. Kaeser and Mc
Eachern turned detectives when Babcock
had almost half a. lap lead and soon cap
tured the runaway, not, however, until
the entire bunch had gained a lap on Mul
ler. It was a notice2Ple fact that through
out the long grind Archie McEachern a,nd
Bobby Walthour were always together.
Not once in the last four hours' ride was
any other rider allowed to get between
them.
As 10 o'clock approached arrangements
were matle for the grand final that WOUld
give honor and money to some a.nd bad
thoughts to others. Trainers were given
final instructiona and sent behind the rail
ing. At 10:e9 Babcock and Muller, who
had no possible chance for a look In at
the prize, were taken out. leaving Mc
Eachern, Walthour, Kaeser. Stinson, "Ale
Leath Downey and Fischer for the last
struggle.
ON THE FINAL LAP.
Just before this Babcock essayed an
other gain, but Downey soon caught him.
Walthour was close up, and on the back
stretch passed Downey and Babcock like
a flash anti went out for what looked like
a lap. Downey hesitated and then cut
100SP and caught the southerner in a
twinkle.
At 10:10 the seven leaders, cleared for
action irk the following order: alcEach
ern, Kaeser. Walthour Stinson., McLean,
Downey and Fischer.
At 1,3:4'2 Stinson punctured a tire. but did
not lose by the mishap. He had a good
wheel handy and dropped into the line
again. The men kept up the slow gTirid
tO hi:F,O, when they began to show arlirlIEL
tion that gradually worked up to the
gra,nd burst of speed that closed the race
as told above.
The seven roen vvho finished with Bab
cock and Muller will divide about $4.0130 in
gold.

FULTZ MAY STUDY LAW--
Crack Milwaukee Player Decides to
Quit the Diamond.
Milwaukee, Wis., Jan. 7.There is
every reason to believe that David
Fultz. who covered second base for the
Milwatik.e team last season, Will z-ettre
from the diamond this yi-ar and take
up the study and practice of law instead
of donning the spang-les with either the
Brooklyn or Boston teams. In a letter

versity Fultz says that he has definitely
determined to retire from the profession
of ball playing and take up the Etudy

MAY FIGHT AT IC. 0.
Promoters Seek to Hold Contest Be
tween Jeffries and Sharkey.
Kansas City, Mo. Jan. 7.A move
ment started here tc;day which may re.
suit in the bringing of the Jeffries
Sharkey tight here and the holding of
the battle in Convention hall. The plan
was suggemed by the action of the
managers of the Cincinnati hall in ar
ranging for one championship fight for
the purpose of paying off the debt of
the building.
lieveral thousand dollars are required
for the completing' of the interior dec
orations, and this plau has been, sug
gested as a means of raising it and is
meeting- with favor. There is a law in
Missouri which prohibits prize fighting.
and a Ft. Louis affair was stopped last
week, but there has never been any
great difficulty in pulling off fights here.
Unless the ministers make too g-reat an
Olijeet krt there is strong possibility of
Jeffries and Sharkey meeting here.

" DYNAMITED" SILK
Paterson Manufacturers Want It
Properly Labeled.
New York, Jan. 7.A conference has
been arranged for next week at Pater
son, N. J., between Congressman Stew
art and a. committee of silk manufac
turers with the view of preparing a bill
to, be introduced in congress to require
a label on "dynamited" or weig-hted
silks. The manufacturers have con
cluded that the practice of weighting
silk is wha,t has brought it irfto dis
repute and almost ruined the industry.
By the use of bichloride of tin in the
dying process the dyer gets two pounds
out of every pound tha,t comes to bis
hands. This has produced a. great re
duction in prices, but the goods are in
ferior. On exposure to the air the bi
chloride of tin crystallizes and the
crystals cut the fabric upon the slightest
wear or friction
At first the "dyna,mited" silk has the
same handsome and brilliant appearance
that the bona fide article has, but as it
does not wear, it has given silk a bad
name generally, and the industry lan
guishes. The manufacturers who insist
on having their silk treated with pure
dye only are greatly handicapped, a,nd
they are now endeavoring to get the aid
of congress. Their purpose is to, have a
law passed requiring "dynamited"
goods, both foreign and domestic, to be
labeled, so that the purchaser may
know what he is buying.
THE MONTEREY ARGUMENT.
-
It Is Used to Bring a Chinese Viceroy
to Time.
Tacoma, Wash-. Jan. 7.--The steam
ship Tacoma brings news from Hong
Kong that the American consul at
Canton has required the viceroy of
Kwang Tung to suppress several sedi
tious native newspapers which were be
ing circulated-throughout Carlton advis
ing the natives to, raise against foreign
ers. Some objection was ma,de when the
consul first protested. He pointed to, the
coast defense vessel Monterey lying in
the harbor as evidence that his wishes
must be respected. The viceroy than
gave orders to suppress the papers and
arrest any one found selling. therm
The present serious situation in Carl
ton is regarded as due largely to the in
fluence of these papers. Everywhere
there is a strong undercurrent of hatred
to foreigners.
WHY IIE PAINTS IIIS FACE.
Prom Pearson's Magazine.
Every paint mark on the Indian's face
is a sign with a definite meaning which
other Indians may read. When an In
dian puts on his full war paint he decks
himself not only with his own individual
honors and distinctions won by his own
bravery, but also with the special hon
ors of his family or tribe. He may pos
sess one mark of distinction only or
mau; in fact, he may be so well off In
this respect that, like some English no
blemen, he is able to don a ner,v distinc
tion for every occasion. Sometimes he
will vvear all his honors at one time.
Among the Indian tribes is one desig
nated by the symbol of the dogfish,
painted in red on the face. Tbe various
parts of the fish are scattered hetero
geneously on the surface of the face; the
peculiarly long snout is painted on the
forehead, the gills are represented by
two curved lines below the eyes, while
the tail is shown as cut in two and
hanging from either ncwtril. When only
one or two parts of an animal are paint
ed on a man's face it is an indication of
inferiority; when the whole animal ap
pears, even though in many oddly as
sorted parts, the sign is one of great
value and indicates a high rank.
Very peculiar are some of the honor
able symbols painted on the Indians'
faces.. There are fish, flesh and fowl
of all kindsdog-salmon, devilfish, star
fish, woodpeckers, eagles, ravens,wolves,
bears, sealions and sea monsters, mos

Should Weigh this Question, and
Profit by a Topeka Citizen's
Experience.
- A lame or aching back is a. handicap.
Drive the ache away and make work
a pleasure.
- Learn what backache- means.
, Learn that the backache is kidney
ache.
Learn how to shake it off.
Read how a Topeka citizen did it.
Mr. J. R. Black, of 1005 East - Sixth
street, paper hanger and painter, says:
"During the three years tha,t I suffered
from kidney complaint, the grumbling
aching pain across the small of my
back. greatly inconvenienced me when
reaching and straining, as is necessary
to do in paper hanging. I also had a,
very distressing and annoying weakness
of the kidneys, particularly noticeable
at night wben it greatly broke my rest,
and I rose as tired in the morning as
when I- went. to bed. When I saw
Doan's Kidney Pills advertised I got a,
box at Rowley & Snow's drug store,
corner of Sixth street and Kansas ave
nue. They gave me the greatest satis
faction, and in a. short tirne the pain
in my back disappeared.

FIGI1T WITII A HAWK.
From the I,,os Angeles Times.
Ida Duffy, the 9 year old daughter of
Thomas J. Duffy of the Palatine Insur
ance company of San Francisco, had a
desperate battle with a 'wounded chicken
hawk at San Rafael and narrowly es
caped with her life. Several days ago
the bird was given to the child and it
has since been kept a prisoner in the
yard of the family residence at that
place. The other morning the hawk suc
ceeded in making its escape and flew to
a. near-by tree, where a piece of string
attached to its leg became entangled in
the branches, again making the. bird a
prisoner.
The little girl seeing that the hawk
was unable to flay away, ran to the tree.
and, taking advantage of its spreading
limbs, ra,pidly climbed to a, spot many
feet above the ground, where the bird
was entangled. She attempted to undo
the string from the tree, when suddenly
the bird swooped at her and buried the
talons of both feet in the little girl's
face. The child screamed with pain, but
pluckily fought the hawk off as again
and again it attacked her with. beak,
ta,lons and wings.
The child's face was terribly scratched
and her hands cut in the struggle, but
the little heroine clung to the tree and
eventually securing a. hold on the bird's
legs prevented it from doing further
harm. Slowly and painfully she climbed
down the tree and still clinging to the
struggling bird she brought it with her
to the ground and placed it in captivi
ty.. Then she ran to' the house, where
her cut and bleeding face was promptly
attended to.
That the child escaped the loss of all
eye or a. bad fall from the tree was little
less than miraculous, as her scratches
show that the attack of the chicken
hawk was a vicious one. However, none
of her WCRAnðS is serious, and, with the
exception of a few scarashe will be none
the worse for her exciting experience.
DR. SMITH'S DISCOVERIES.
rFrom the New York Sun.
The SIM has already told briefly of Dr.
Donaldson Smith's secret journeys across
the wholly unknown region between Lake
Rudolf in East Africa, and the Nile. He
was the first white man in that wide dis
trict, and a. few weeks ago he had. read
an account of hLs journey before the
Royal Geographical society. Among the
most important of his remarks were those
relating to the meteorology of the coun
try. He said there is no doubt that the
desert condition of the lands inland from
the Indian ocean is the result of the fact
that the north winds blowing over the
mountains of Abyssinia are wrung per
fectly dry of their moisture in crossing
the mountains and then descend the
southern slopes as dry winds.
These breezes are the northern trade
Winds. and as they cross the lofty moun
tain ranges of the Abyssinian highlands
practically all the moisture in them is
condensed and precipitated arid only a
pitiful drop or so Ls permitted to reach.
the more southern lands. So Somaliland
and the lowlands to the vouth of Abys
sinia. are very dry. All the river's and
lakes which came under his observation
this year were half dried up.
The other striking fact which be men
tioned is that the whole fauna. both birds
and mammals. appears to change as soon
as Lake Rudolf is passed. In other words
the fauna between the Indian ocean and
Lake Rudolf is very different from that
between Rudolf rtnd the Nile. Gazelles
and harbeets were seen on both sides ef
the lake, but the verieties were different.
Waller's gazelle, which had been a con
stant companion. was nowhere to be seen,
but the oribi and reedbuck took his place,.
More than one hundred species of birds
were seen to the west of the lake and
were found to belong principally to West
African types.
