The araratfe Kalnli does not rejjard CaurdeT as a enme. It is kill or be txUled la his own cxmntry, and he there Care regasds the matter of taking off of 0k friend most philosophically. "There Ca nothinjr to worry a boat; he is dead, and X kded him. he will tell you if you fchouLI toquire about a companion with arhom he was on the best of terms the preoedinff viator, says the San Fran isooChrosjlcle. I have heard an Afghan, while ptrrchasing a weapon, speak with ridens guMXo of the occasion when he would use the gnin to murder a friend. It caused him as little concern, this con templated crime, as If he had said: ''Shall kill a chicken, if God so wills it, tomorrow for my pills a. And yet there is something childish and affec tionate about these men. They never rem to forget a farer and repay it to the best of their ability. Unlike other Mohammedans, they do not observe the Kosma with blind obstinacy, but occa sionally stretch its precepts to accord rita their ideas of religion. They do not drink, for that is directly against the law, nor do they smoke. Pslgrave, la his interesting book describing his frjuntry to the sacred city of Mecca, gire aa amusing account of his conver sation with a Slollah. On asking the reverend gentleman svhlch he considered the most deadly of sins, the holy man replied: t -Smoking the shamefuL' MAnd next, oh, son of the prophet?' , Drinking." Ase these the two greatest sins, fatherr Verily, my som, . "And murder? "Ah, that's nething nsthiag. It's fargtrahleu" "And stcallngr' -AW thsfs forgivable too." "But smoking? It is the unforgivable crime," re plied the MeUah sternly, snd looking keenly at the fictitious Mohammedan. And t&is, I think, is the Afghan's sreed. Murder and theft are forgira wle crimes, btt for smoking ssd drink ing there is so redemption. THE DOTTLE IMP HOAX. II We the fttl f a Wager sa4 Yry Nr!r Crl m ItUt la 174S.

A. C. Fkcth, M. D., Specialist of Diseases of Women, SO Fast Madison St., Cbicsgy, 111. Thb Best Plastfr. Dampen a piece of flannel wita Chamberlain's 1'ain Balm and bind it on over the seat of pain. It is better than any plaster. When the lungs are sore such an appli cation on the chest and auother on the back, between the shoulder blades, will often prevent pneumonia. There is nothing so good for a lame back or a pain in the side. A sore throat can nearly always be cured in one night by applying a nannel bandage dampened with Tain Balm. 60 cent bottles for sale by F. J. Wurzburg, druggist, 53 Monroe street.
