Chicago The -eatcst danger to life in the city is not the car with its clanging gong, but thoe silent invisible foes, the germs of disease. The prevalence of consumption in cities is stated to te largely due to the frequent expectoration of diseased per sons, whose dried sputa mixed with the ") dust and blown r .' 1 1 into the air, is 5 inhaled by some luckless man or woman. Sanita tion may mini mize these perils but can never obliterate them. The essential thing i3 to edu- 1 cate every per- son to the knowledge that tiie germ can find no permanent lodg ment in a healthy body. Keep the blood pure, the stomach and other organs of ciijies'.ion and nutrition in sound health and von are practically germ proof. This disease resisting condition is ob tained by the tise of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It purifies the blood, strengthens the stomach, nourishes the nerves, aad heals the lungs. Even when there is obstinate cough, bronchitis, spitting of blood and other conditions, which, if neglected, lead to consump tion, the faithful use of Golden Medical Th-covery will, in almost every instance, effect a cure.

Boston, March 29. Rev. Dr. Wm. C. Winslow, vice president of the Egyptian exploration fund, stated that in addi tion to the papyri from Oaxyrhychus presented to several universities is a val uable lot of 43 papyri from several sites in the Fayum, which have been received for distribution. A papyrus for Yale of the twenty second book of the Iliad of the first cen tury preserves the notable combat be tween Achilles and Hector. Harvard srets two pieces of the Odyssey of the first century. The University of Penn sylvania has a fragment of the Odyssey of the first century. Araons seven papyri for Columbia is a tax collector's return, showing items and how the collectors made returns In A. D. 1SS. In the papyrus for Hamilton coilepe is the receipt for a voter named Philoxenus. One of the two papyri for Vassar col leKe is the official notice of the birth of a son from Ischyias and hi3 wife Thai sarion. A. D. 150. Of six papyri for Princeton one is a le turn of house property, A. D. 131, from Sambous to Dius and Herodes, keepers of the registry of property. The rise of the Nile waa the Rreat annual event, and upon it taxes were calculated. Hence one of the six papyri sent to Johns Hopkins, treating of 1he unwatered land tilled by Ptollarous, A. D. 163. is peculiarly interesting-. She de clares that her field at Euhemeria did not set the water. Her plea, in si word, is "no crops, no taxes." FOUND IVOItY LIONS. Important Discoveries Made by Prof. Petrie In Egypt Boston, March 29. Rev. Dr. William C. Winslow, vice president of the Egypt exploration fund, has just received offi cial word that Prof. Petrie has un earthed at Abydos the records of kings before Mena, the founder of the first dvnasty, nearly 4,M0 years before Christ. "We have found," writes Prof. Petrie, "the names of Narma Ka and a king named by a fish sign, perhaps also of two kings. Deb and Sam of Mena. and those earliest kings. There are about 30 inscriptions and a heavy Rtrip of gold with the name Aha (Mena). In tne tomb of Khazkhoumi were found stone vases, each with a gold cap tied on with frold wire. Also two broad bangles of gold and a dinner service of a dozen pans and dishes, with 160 models of tools in sheet copper. The freaaent use of ivory then is witnessed by the discovery of 40 inscribed ivories and stones and two lions cut in ivory."

San Juan, P. R., March 29. The agents of the company engaged in con structing the railroad from Ouayaquil to Quito, Ecuador, are in Porto Rico re cruiting for laborers. This, in connec tion with the departure yesterday of S(9 emigrants for Hawaii and 400 more for Cuba, to work in the iron mines, is drainintr Porto Rico of its best laborers. The entire press of the island is object ing to this emigration. Planters cannot cultivate their lands owing to the lack of i?ioney, and consequently there is no work to be had here. The authorities are taking no steps to prevent this emi gration. There are 3 cases of smallpox at Ponce. A slight increase of the disease in the rest ot thtt island is reported. BORROWS MONEY ON LEGS. Omaha Woman Gats $25 From a Pawnbroker on Artificial Limbs. Omaha, Neb., March 29. Miss Jessie Robinson appiied at Sam Adler's pawn, shop today for a loan on her cork leg-s. The pawnbroker was startled by the question: "Wili you loan me S:'o on my legs?" from a well dressed young woman as sue entered tne shop. The pawnbroker asked gravely: 'Madam, have vou vour legs with you? She assured him that she was standing on tnem at tne moment. "They are cork, you know," she ex plained anologetieallv. At Adler's request the woman, timidly and witn ner ia.ee sunuseu witn Diusnes, lifted her skirts three or four inches, dis. playing a wrell-rounded cork ankle. She explained that her artificial legs extended above her knees. Adler insisted that h must see the whole of tho iimbs befor loaning money on them. "Very well." she said in desperation, "I'll take them off right here." "For heaven's sake, don't do that! Go home and 111 call for them, replied Ad ler. The voung woman left. Half an horn later Adler received a telephone message mat tne legs were waiting ior nim, ana he immediately' called for them and loan ed $25 for them. As he placed the limb oy nis sloe m tne Duggy tne woman called to him: " "I am expecting some money in a week or two, and then I'll send around and get my legs." The woman's natural legs were cut oft in a railroad wreck at ureenwooa, iseo. REVEALS AWFUL CRIME. Find of Workmen Points to WifeMur- der Committed in 1831. Pcultney, Vt., March 29. Workmen In removing a cellar wall today discovered a r.'dden pit, seven feet square, In tne cenrer of which was a stout iron post. Fastened to the post waa a heavy iron chain, on the end of which was an old fashioned pair of handcuffs. Near by was found a heap of human bones. The discovery is supposed to solve the mys tery of a crime committed TO years ago Perry Borden, a day laborer, became verr jealous of his pretty young wHe and in November, 1831, she mysteriously disappeared. Borden said she had rurv away to Canada. No effort was ever made to find her. Borden himself left a couple of years later aiid followed the sea for oO years. He returned here m 188-1 and for a couple of years was a town charge. He finally died and was buried here. He was never known, to mention his wife's name after her disap- pea: ance. HAPPY MRS. FUNSTOfl. Many People Call at the llouie of the General. Manila, March 29. "When Aguinaldo was captured he wore a plain dark blue suit, with the coat closely buttoned at the throat, and a wide white helmet, with a leather band. He takes his cap ture philosophically. He is generally cheerful, but some times -moody. His health during the past year has been very good. It is uncertain what attitude he will now assume. Certain visitors are permitted to see Aguinaldo but newspaper interviews with the prisoner are not allowed. Since Aguinaldo has been domiciled at the Malacanan palace persons not provided with special permtis have been denied admission to the grounds. General Trias, the commander of the insurgent forces in southern Luzon, who recently surrendered to the American authorities, visited Aguinaldo and told the latter why he surrendered. Triaa said that a continuance of armed oppo sition to the United States waa unjus tifiable and ruinous; that the independ ence of the Philippines waa impossible, and that the Filipinos would better ac cept liberty, prosperity and progress under American rule. The capture of Aguinaldo, following the surrender of General Trias, will probably occasion the surrender of the insurgent leader Malavar, in Batangas province, Luzon; Bella rmino, in Albay province, Luzon, and Lucban, in the island of Samar, within a month. Many people visited the residence of General and Mrs. Funston, on the Calle Real, in the suburbs of Krmita, The general modestly declined to talk. Mrs Funston was evidently the happiest woman in the Philippine islands. 3en. Funston has been recommended for the highest practicable reward. It is believed here that he will receive en appointment as brigadier general in the regular army. PAPER FOR 219 YEARS. James H. Moore and Brother Break Subscription Record. Binghamton, N. T., March 29. "Please send us your paper from the present time until Dec. 31 of the year 2120, draw on us at once for total bill and forward receipt." Such was the purport of a let ter recently written to tne publisher of the Greene American, a local newspaper. by James H. Moore and his brother. William- H. Moore, the noted trustmak- ers. Some time ago the Moores decided that they could do much good by intro ducing a novel philanthropy, and the record-breaking newspaper subscription is the result. Today they received a re ceipt, the price for 219 years being near ly J1.400. SOCIETY MEN USE FISTS. Request For a Loan Ends in a Sensa tion in Louisville. Louisville. Ky.. March 9. With their bare fists in straight Marquis of Queens berry style JDr. Leslie Myer and Lowell Clark, both prominent young men in Louisville society, settled a point of honor early this morning. Myer won in the second round with a right on the jaw. The trouble started in Memphis, Tenn., several weeks ago. Dr. Myer, who is an ex-volunteer soldier, was then visiting a last year's debutante. His funds ran low. and meeting Clark asked for a loan. Clark told the young wo man. The physician's money came from Louisville that day. He,and Clark met yesterday and the fight was arranged. CAPITAL IS ELECTED. The state executive council this after noon elected the Dally Capital official state paper. Paving Turned Down. The council committee on streets and walk3 failed to act on the aDDlication for paving Eighth and Ninth streets between yuincy ana .Monro, some ot tne people in the blocks want wider paving than was asked for in the petition and it is on this account that the petitions were not acted upon. Every family should have its house hold medicine chest, and the first bottle in it should be Dr. Wood s Norway Pine Syrup, nature's remedy for coughs and colds. WHITE MEN OF ALGERIA. From the London Express. The Berbers of Algeria are a people of whom there is much good to be said. Whether in the olive-clad mountains t f Kabylia oi the terraced valleys of the!. Aurasian fastnesses, they are white men and in general act like whjte men. Very little is known about them in this country, but Mr. Anthony Wilkin has written so fascinatingly about them in his admirable book "Among the Berbers of Algeria," that there la no excuse for us to remain longer in ignorance con cerning this interesting race of men. Among them the virtues of honesty, hospitality and good nature are con spicuous; and It is something of a mis fortune to reflect that Mahomedanism and the fact that they no longer dwell lu the lowlands prevent them entering as they would otherwise have entered, on the path of peace and progress. Descendants of a mighty race, whose culture once spread from the Atlantic to the Red sea and the Hauron, from Crete to Timbuetoo and the Soudan, there are still to be found among them the ves tiges of the arts and sciences, of the spir it of conquest, and the capacity for self government which, if developed, would again make them a great nation. The Berber women of the Aures wash their garments on the rocks, soaking them, treading upon them, and spread ing and trampling each piece until it is quite clean. They have blue eyes and fair skins, and, unlike the true daugh ters of the prophet, gaze unveiled upoi the casual unbeliever. Throughout the Aures district the houses are built on the same plan. Whn e cliff can be found to form the back wall it is used aa such, Mr. Wilkin in forms us. If the cliff contains a hole or hollow, so much the better. The walls are made of blocks of stone tet in mud instead of mortar, the larger crevices being filled with splinters and the smaller with fragments; while in the better houses the square faces of the stones are set outwards in such a way as to give a very regular appearance. Inside these houses are generally stone benches, which have been carved fro.n the rocks, or are built of odd stones and plastered flat with mud. The floors also are of rock leveled with mud. The animals are sometimes stabled in the family room ,but as often in a sep arate stall, either under" or close to the main building. The women regularly sweep the roofs every morning; nor are the villagers so dirty as might be sup posed. At sunset the women come up from thj streams bearing water in goat-skins, or faggots, or forage, all piled upon their backs. For the most part they are dress ed In black or dark blue gowns, gathered in at the waists with brightly-colored woolen girdles. Some wear sandals of grass neatly plaited, and these are commonly worn by the men as well. Many women go barefooted, however, like the children. The wives of rich and indulgent hus bands are often loaded with coarse sil ver ornaments, including a gigantic pair of anklets that weigh nearly a pound, end clank like chains on the legs of the proverbial ghost. Their headdresses vary greatly in the matter of color, but are all more or lrs3 based on a squarish turban, over which gaudy handkerchiefs are arranged with scrupulous care and an excellent ej'e effect. The servants wear practically the same garments as their masters, and are treated so nicely by them that it i3 iiiffi cult for a stranger to distinguish them at once. To notice a servant, however, in the presence of a kaid would be a grae breach of etiquette. Often your host will Insist on waiting on you himself, and on these occasioc he will not touch a mouthful himself un til he sees that his guests are satisfied. The Berber is a born trader, who will think nothing of tramping for miles to gain tl rew pence. Though tattooing is expressly forbidden by the Koran, the practice prevails among all the Berbers of Algeria. The girls often have a blue cross on the fore head between the eyes. Whatever the women think, they in stantly act elope with some young spark, take to the mountains, or die pre maturely, leaving a sorrowful husband with an all-too-numerous family. They are creatures of impulse. Majority of Alaskan Commercial Companies United. tSaa Francisco, March 29. The Post says: A combination has been formed by companies engaged in the Alaskan trade for the purpose of preventing profitless competition. A uniform scale of prices will be adhered to, and the companies of San Francisco, Seattle, Cape Non.e and Dawson will be on an equal foot ing. Five companies so far have been dra-vn into the union, and it is expected that others will follow. Those that have al ready signified their intention to abide by the rules of the agreement are the Alaska Commercial company and Alas ka Exploration company of this city: rhe North American Transportation and Trading company of Seattle, the Ames Mercantile company of Cape Nome and the Seattle-Yukon Trading company of Seattle and Dawson. They, represent the bulk of trade with these points in the Alaskan territory. The formation of the union is the re sult of negotiations which have beri underway for several weeks. Represen tatives of Seattle and other places have visited San Francisco for the purpose of reaching an understanding with the of ficials of the local companies. Thee overtures have borne fruit and it Is now- announced that the combination has been formed and the agreement enter ed into although the plans for the prac tical working of the enterprise have rot been consummated.
