THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. C.,1 THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 1898.-TWELVE PAGES.

BY DB. J. 0. TOETEB.
frhile we were journeying on the Madeira
ftfver wo' one day came in disagree
able contact with some of the savages that
dwell in those parts. Back from the river
shores on either side lay tribes never at
peace either among themselves or with
strangers, and others whose peaceful atti
tude depended upon opportunity for plun
der and momentary stales of mind. No
visitors of any kind ventured into the
valleys inhabited by these wild Indians,
who sent war parties on all sides. .All
found common foes in those white or par
tiallv white intruders who were gcncrally
better off than themselves.
We unintentionally made acquaintance
with an encampment of savages, known
as Caripunas, a horde having slightly bet
ter reputations than some others who ate
their enemies and made flutes out of the
large bones of their legs. These creatures
received us with an ominous cordiality.
Therefore, we prepared for defense, being
accustomed to the noble savage's ways.
There was not much to do only swing out
our vessel into the stream beyond jumping ,
distance; keep those native
followers who migm uc lu
lled upon to some extent
on board and armed, while
we remained on shore, ac
companied by the rest of
those men to whom ill
fortune then joined us, and
endeavored to impress our
entertainers with some idea
of the consequences that
would ensue if they pro
ceeded to extremities.
This was not difficult to do.
After a half dozen shots had
been fired from one of our
rifles without reloading, these
natives bel eved it would go
on shooting forever; wh le the
fact that its balls went
straight was obvious. A fear
of death kept them for a
time ivithin limits, and as it
was just as bad to stay over
long as to leave in a hurry,
there seemed to be a good
chance of soon getting away
The Caripunas, as wi
Judged, appreciated the situ
ation; plunder and murder,
to them, were pleasant occu
pations, but such pleasures
might be enjoyed at too
great a cost. This is the
way in which things probably
looked to them; since sav
ages rarely indulge their tasto
Tor spoil and manslaughter
unless they can do so with
out severe reprisals. When
thev fight voluntarily, it is
almost always because all
advantages are with them.
Therefore, as was said, we
hoped to escape any out
break, and might have done

unexpected. Ilis finery only excited strong
impulses towards plunder; when, also, he
fired an old smooth-bore musket loaded
half way up to its muzzle at a monkey and
missed it, the recoiling gun malting his
nose bleed, these Caripunas despised him.
As was most necessary, we devoted our
selves to the chiefs, or, in other words,
kept them under our rifles while bartering
trinkets and prismatic calico for feather
ornaments, beautifully-made hammocks,
and bows of pachiuba palm.
"When the proper time came, man after
man, warned by my companion, slipped
awav and got aboard, until few were left.

rose above the vociferations ot tne crowu.
None of us knew what it meant; yet ai
once these Indians began to vanish. Ibcy
did not rush tumultously .away, but
silentlv, singly and quickly disappeared,
swallowed up by the encircling woods.
Soon everv shed stood empty all were
gone. As we fell back on the vessel with
our remaining men, it was noticed that our
servant Pablo had not appeared. linally
we were told that he had been last seen in
company with two or three Indian gins on
the verge of a glade leading none knew
n-i,nm w iild nnt abandon him. vet
going into the forest looked like wantonly
sacrificing better men man hc. uui s
landed our trustworthy natives, gaye them
all good arms, put the remainder on board,
The search did not last long. Within a
mile, all that was left of the missing man
lay before us. He had been killed shock
ingly, and no doubt lured to his doom.
"We could not stay to bury him. The only
things which averted a crisis now were
those magic guns of ours, and our party
made haste to leave so dangerous a neigh
borhood. We journeyed on, engaged with those
studies whose prosecution had brought us
thither. A story may be repeated that was
told us at the Salto dc Girao, where it be
came necessary to unload and make a
portage of about a thousand yards.
Night had fallen, and most everybody,
tred with the day's work, lay asleep;
but as no one could say at what moment
our campfires might show the forms of
savage enemies gleaming amidst those
dense shadows with which the forest sur
rounded us, my companion and I did most
of the guard duty.
While both were yet awake, an elderly
half-breed Gomez, one of the crew ap
proached, and seating himself, proceeded
to light his cigarct. This was unusual be
havior, and besides that the man appeared
in trcub'c; so we inquired what ailed him.
No nine perhaps, he said, though this
teas a. bad place, and had our Excellencies
heard anything just now Ja, yell, for in
stance, like the panther's screamv only
much worse, for panthers were angels com
pared with caeporas, and one of those
devils shrieked only a little while ago.
What was a caepora? A demon, to he
sure; an old, very ugly, very big devil
covered with hair, who strangled people,
and rcj'oicing in human sufferings,
whooped around spots where men had
been done to death.
Oh, yes, this was all very certain; also,
that over and above evil spirits, brute
Indians, focether with wild beasts, had
done much harm at this Salto de Girao es
pecially Indians. Several years before,
when it paid well to bring cargos of salt
for sale in the interior by this route, Gomez
said, he had barely escaped with life at
the very spot we then occupied, and sev
eral of his comrades perished. The natives,
he said, were engaged to help carry their
freight, and combined to murder them.
One of the chiefs suddenly enraged him
self, shouting for more beads and cloth.
Before any 'sense could be made of what
these savages wanted, an arrow went
through a friend of his-who wriggled on
the ground just as a fish docs when it is
pulled out of water. But the leader of the
party had brought them under the bank,
where they could shoot across an open,
and Indians cannot stand being killed at
a distance. So after much fighting and
considerable loss, these demons withdrew.
There was plenty of scientific work in
this region at all times; among other ob
jects, our own men well merited observa
tion; their manners, customs, physical
characters and states of mind exhibiting
characteristic phases of development that
it would have been inexcusable to come so
far and then neglect. As doctors, all super
stitious beliefs, that is to say, the larger
part of their mental possessions, were open
to us, whom they consulted on every
case, real or imaginary, at the same time
expressing their own amazing views. But
to them medicine meant magic, not priestly
magic, but another kind with a wider
range, and since none doubted the reality
of witchcraft and sorcery in all their forms,
our influence became after a time verv

At a small Indian village near tho Gua
pose's mouth a mulatto priest was stung
by one of the venomous inch-and-a-half-iong
tucandeira ants. He immediately
swelled, being probably in bad condition,
suffered intensely, and was nearly scared
to death because doses of water in which
a filthy little charm-bag had been soaked
worked no good effects. It did not need
much skill to relieve him. however, and
then our crew, with little persuasion,
would have included us among the objects
of their devotion; since to be equally able
to kill or cure, and at tho same time
more potent in occult arts than a priest,
was something these ruffians understood
and appreciated fully.
On another occasion. Sambo George said
his prayers, performed a little magic, and

As September ended and October

ing'iorce, and the "Siege of Chatta

Cumberland continued to cherish the
delusive hope that Burnside would
come to its assistance with the Army of
the Ohio- Dana's dispatches show this:

for some hours, and from the descriptions of

In addition to this evidence, on the night
of the Gth the whole rebel camps were in
motion as if they were about to retreat, and
their guns on Lookout Mountain were all
brought down. Now, this was either a con
flict with Burnside's flanking column or a
mutiny, more probably the former. An in

who arrived in Chattanooga Valley on the 5th,
knows nothing of any such engagement. This

by the refusal of a brigade of Georgia militia,

Dana seems to have had little use for
a gallant Kentucky General who was
once one of the most popular officers in
the army :
Oct. 8. Gen. Rousseau, who seems to be
regarded throughout this army as an ass of
eminent gifts, having reported to Gen. Thomas
that you had inquired how the army would
like to have him in the chief command, that
officer has sent a confidential friend to me to
say that while he would gladly accept any
command out of this department to which
you might see fit to assign him, he could not
consent to become the successor of Gen. Rose
crans, because he would not do anything to
give countenance to the suspicion that he
had intrigued against his commander. Be
sides, he lias as perfect confidence in capacity
and fidelity of Rosecrans as he had in those
of Gen. Buell.
CONSOLIDATION' OF THE CORPS.
It having been decided to relieve
Gens. McCook and Crittenden, it was
also resolved to consolidate their two
corps into one, to be known as the
"Fourth," and this naturally created
much feeling among the men of the
Twentieth and Twenty-first Corps, who
knew that they had done their full duty,
whatever might have been the faults of
their commanders. Dana telegraphs:
Oct. 8; 1 p. m. The consolidation of the
two corps is universally well received, and
being followed by a general reorganization of
the army, with' consolidation of reduced regi
ments and new and more equal combinations
of brigades and divisions, must produce the
most happy consequences. The men, how
ever, of the consolidated corps arc somewhat
troubled by letters rfrom home, showing that
their friends regard tlie consolidation as a
token of disgrace and punishment.
It is very desirable sto obviate any such
feeling, especially aaof4hesix divisions com
posing the consolidated aorps three fought with
heroism and success throughout the battle.
"Will it not then bej practicable to publish an
order at "Washington,, complimenting the
stcadineas and gal Ian try of the two corps, and
putting the consolidation on the ground of
the great reduction in their numbers, and
especially on necessity of rendering our
brigades numerically more equal to those of
the enemy against which they arc sent to
TROUBLES OF ITS OWN.
The rebel army was by no means a
happy family. It had even more trou
bles than the army- it was beleaguering.
Dana telegraphs :
Oct. 9; 11 a. m. Deserters yesterday re
ported Bragg making hard bread and con
structing pontoons at La Fayette. Last even
ing our pickets reported his troops to be fell
ing trees in front as if to obstruct roads.
Pickets this morning, however, seem to have
noticed nothing of the sort during the night,
nor is any special symptom reported. Bragg's
force is now said b' some deserters to be
80,000, by others 125,000.
Chattanooga llcbcl of Gth, published at
Marietta, contains Polk's farewell to his sol
diers on being relieved. He says he retires
from the army. Cheatham succeeds to the
command of corps. Same paper says these
are reports. Jeff Davis on his way to the
seat of war in Tennessee. It also publishes
a letter from Davis to Confederate Society,
of Enterprise, Miss., formed to keep currency
at par with gold. He says :
"The passion for speculation has seduced
citizens of all classes from a determined prose
cution of the war to a sordid effort to amass,
"lain hardened by the complaining and
despondentletters of many who have stood all
the day idle, and now blame anybody but
themselves for reverses which have come and
dangers which threaten."
Oct. 9; 12 p. m. An intelligent Union
citizen who has just got in from beyond rcbel
lines reports Bragg's main body retreating to
Dalton. Forage very scarce with rebels as
with us. "We are now losing some twenty
animals daily of starvation, in addition to
the usual mortality.
"Work on interior fortifications actively
begun. "When finished, with garrison of
10,000 men, Chattanooga will be absolutely
1 de3irc to call your attention to the fact
that there are two few telegraph operators
between Chattanooga and Nashville, and tliat
many of those we have are drunken, worth
less fellows, who should be dismissed imme
diately. To he continued.)

New York, March 23, 1593. A large party
of progressive men, women and students, de
sirous of seeing and learning for themselves
something of the wonderful new medical
discoveries, recently paid a visit to the fa
mous Dr. Slocum Laboratory, where they were
graciously and cordially received. The Doc
tor, in addressing them, said, among othex
"I feel honored and very mnch flattered
by your presence, and I assure you that I
shall be more than pleased to afford you
every opportunity for fully satisfying your
selves as to the real valne and extraordinary
merits of my several New Discoveries.
"Devoting as I do my entire time and my
best energies to scientific work along Medi
cal and Chemical lines, I must depend largely
upon others to give publicity to my many
New Discoveries in Medicine and Chemistry.
I shall therefore talk to you. unreservedly, in
the hope and belief that you will be. tho
means of directing many sufferers to us for
relief and cure.
"Here you see about you many thing3 in
the way of chemical apparatus and laboratory
necessities that are doubtless new and strange
to you. But these articles are, I assure you,
'indispensable to those who delve into the
mysteries of Modern Science. By their aid
we are enabled to see and understand many
things which would otherwise be far beyond
the range of human vision.
"The Miscroscope is to us the greatest aid
in our Scientific work. It enables us to criti
cally examine all the tissues of the human
body, both in health and disease. If we did
not study the various tissues and organs in
health we would not be able to replace or re
store the lost elements or waste material in
cident to disease.
""We study the Blood, the Bones, the
Muscles and all the important Internal
Organs of the body separately and col"
"If we find the Blood lacking in certain
elements that should exist in that important
life-snstaiuing fluid, we prepare our remedy
so that it will supply the missing elements
and make the blood pure and healthy.
"If the Bones are brittle and 'rickety'
they are deficient in phosphates, which must
be supplied by means of modern medication,
"We have studied the Lungs more care
fully, perhaps, than any other part of the
human organism. "We know their chemical
and pathological composition thoroughly,
both in health and disease. "Ye know ex
actly what changes take place in Consump
tion; what elements are lost in the destruc
tion of the lung tissues, and we have studied
the tubercle bacillus, the cause of such loss,
until we know that we can destroy it by tho
administration of our own Newly Discovered
"Therefore, when we say we can and do
cure Consumption and other "Wasting Diseases,
we speak advisedly and are supported in our
assertions by the testimonials of thousands
of grateful patients "in all sections of this
country whom we have cured during th&
past few years.
