net an thing like a hard course in the lot.
v .irburton had had a fair stiff ener with
Swansea, for aftei thej ran one hare to
overt another got up. The puppy was all
.ait and the big dog had to do all the woik.
He was a bit groggy when he finished this
course, and most judges thought that Astral
Maid would beat him in the final.
How Warburton. Served Afttrnl Maid.
Doctor Van Hummell did a lot of hard
work on air. Lavin's dog while waiting for
time to go to slips, Mr. Egan got them
jv.ay perfectly. For forty vards the fawn
bitch hung with tho dog. Then the killing
stride of the black began to take him aw ay.
Seventy jards out the black was leading
an open length, when both steadied to a
voluntary twist of the hare. They la
down again, and at the 100-yard mark the
dog brought the haro around, two lengths
tr the rood. He knocked off two wrenches.
covering his hare like u, blanket. Then he
served the bitch a sharp turn. The fawn cut
down bis score with three sharp wrenches,
when the hare swung to the dog. He
wrenched thrico along the track bank and
brought the hare-around. coming with her.
The fawn came along on the insldo and
nicked Rt the turn, but tho hare served the
tlog again and, after some Ineffective work
at the escape, went home.
It was a good trial of the- merits of the
dogs as they were yesterday. Both were
lit to run a short, fast course, but neither
was in condition to take a killer. Astral
Maid Is not yet recovered from, the effects
of recent febrlllty, and Mr. Lavin's dog is
palpably not at his best. The course was
a bit of a disappointment to the cognoscenti.
always barring Judge D. J. O'Callaghan.
who set C. A. Robinson a mark to shoot
at, by bein? right on a course for once in
his life. Most people thought that the Maid
would not only lead, but bat tho dog. In
her first course Astral Maid did not appear
to be going fast, but she picked up in speed
right along. Warburton seemed a bit log
gv in his early courses, and that, coupled
with his grogglness when he got through
with Swansea, led many people to bet on
the fawn. But Doctor Van Hummell's
cleverness made tho big dog gather and
pick himself up In his last course better
than In prior courses. Boundless, who won
the puppv stake, belongs to the same ovv ner
as Aatral Maid. He ran a good dog all
through, won his courses handily and con
clusively, but was lucky to have Mr. Cur
ran's Lemoine injured in tho semifinal.
Lemoine (Hector Lyza) ran a great dog In
his course with Lord Cansettle. Lemoino
fell and Injured his shoulder when he had
ihe course won. Lemoine had previously
smothered May Hempstead and Lady Mac,
who had previously beaten the great Star
of Erin. By the way. Lady Mac is quite
a veteran In puppy stakes and should soon
frraduate Into the all-aged class. If raemory
s not a traitor she was running In puppy
stakes before Lemoine was whelped.
How the Other Doga Hon.
In the all-aged stake Mcllitus did not
show his best form, though he beat Cashier
hollow. Astral Maid led him three lengths
ana got me nest oi tne ciever uoings on a
hare that favored her. Lucy Hill ran a
rood course, with Glory Quajle. but the
black was very good when both were cloo
on the hare and held possesion In spite of
tho fawn's Insistence. Sir Guy was drawn
tyecause of bad foot and May Herschol had
a soft bye. with her daughter, bv Tom
Brown. Menominee. Diana la DIable was
a hot favorite over Swansea, but after lead
ins: and doing the early work, she chucked
it In favor of the puppy, who made a great
f-howlng. He appears to be the best puppy
of the season. Monsoon got a racing hare
to suit hlra a?alnt White Wings and ran
her home, though the whlto and black
mixed with him in fine style and was out
scoring him at the end. Chier Elroy was
very smart on hit feet and defeated Gil
Bias in a fast and wicked course.
In the second round Glory Quayle and
May Herschel ran even to the hare, which
was a terror. Thj black got the favor of
purs and ran up a few wrenches, but tho
fawn got in and. oulstaj ed her, winning by
a large margin. Mav Herschel ran a. strong
mid capital bitch. She got a grneller and
will be heard from In the future. Wnrburton
smothered Swansea and Moonsoon beat
Oiler Elroy. In the semifinals. Astral Maid
led May Herschel and got a nice sequence
out of a hare that ran her way. Warburton
led Moonsoon three length". aiH won away

FATE OF ONE OF CUSTER'S
MEN REVEALED BY INDIAN.
"Paints-Himself-Brown" Declares That Lieutenant Harring
ton Shot Himself Rather Than Be Captured.
Tort Yates. X. D.. Nov. S" Again have
the awful particulars of the massacre of
the Little Big Horn In 1S76, which cost the
lives of General Custer and his devoted fol
lowers, been told by one of the Indians w ho
participated In the slaughter. This time
light is shed upon the fate of Lieutenant
Harrington, which has heretofore been
bhrouded in m stery.
Lieutenant Harrington's body was tho
only one not found on the battlefield, and
for years there was a rumor that he had
been taken alive and was held Jn captlvrfv.
'ow Palnts-Hlmself-Brown, an Indian who
fought under Sitting Bull and who was
present at the death of Custer, cornel for
ward to testify that Lieutenant Harring
ton, after Custer's force had been wiped
out, mounted his horse and made a 'mid
dash for liberty. He escaped to the open
prairie, pursued by seven Indians.
"His mount was fresher than ours," says
Palnts-Hlmself-Brown. "and he gained so
rapidly that six of us turned back. The
leader s-ild, 'Let the white man go. It is
well that one should escape to tell how the
CHICAGOAN CLAIMS HE
HAS FOUND NEW PLANT.
G. H. Zschech of No IS Wai ren avenue. In
Chicago, who is an authority on botany,
and who has been visiting in this city for
the last three dajs, thinks his sojourn here
has profited him very much, Tor bj' It be
says he discovered a new plant. Mr.
Zschech has made botany a life study, and
Henry Shaw, to whom St. Louis is Indebted
for Shaw's Garden nnd Tower Grovo Park,
was his intimate friend. He thinks that
much of his knowledge about plants is due
to his acqualntanie with Shaw.
Mr. Zschech's story of the discovery of
the plant was romantic. Zschech was sLay
lig at the Terminal Hotel, and here he
made the acqualnt.-uico of George Whistler,
who lives in Compton Heights, in this citj.
The latter -suggested on Saturday that
Zschech accompany him on a viit to a
friend's house at Shrewsbury Park.

For years after the Custer massacre he
was a phvsical wreck, and it Is said her
mind at ore time was affected by brooding
over tha death of her husband and the un
certainty as to how he came to it.
Mrs. Harrington visited tho Little Big

It seems that a hit of the plant had

A WORD OF WARNING.
neglectful of our health and consequently of those we lore, lor it is not ourselves alone that we live for, but those who are near and dear
to us and who suffer more than words can tell should we be taken away.
Stop a moment and think of vrbat would happen if you were taken away. Perhaps you arc a man with a family who look to too for help and
guidance in a hundred different ways daily. Perhaps a mother with children depending solely upon you for their care and who require your kindly
counsel continually through their childish troubles. Perhaps a son or daughter, with father and mother dependent upon yon for support and
care in their old age.
It is your duty to think first of all ot yonr health. You not only owe it to yourself, bnt to those who love you, who need 700 more than any
thing else in this World to assist them in the struggle of life.
Disease steals upon us unawares in dozens of different ways; a slight cold when given no attention often leads to La Grippe, then to Consump
tion, and frequently death Is the end.
An ache or a pain not promptly stopped may mean years of suffering with Rheumatism or Neuralgia.

been that they were surprised btforc they
had completed their work, they would have
obtained plunder amounting to several
thousand dollar. As It was. they got S&)
worth of Jewelry and damaged the furnish

hundred dollars. Tho house last t lent
nf ter their visit, looked like It had been vis

eign allies. Everything was topsy tuivy.
All tho Ince curtains lud been pulled down
and torn, beds wre pulled apart. bureiJ
and dresser drawers pulled out, and clos

Mrs. Flynn and her 13-ycar-old daughter,
Ada. had been away from the house nil
afternoon, and her husband was attend ng
to business in his saloon on Channlng ave
nue and Olive street, leaving the house un
protected. Sirs. Flynn returned home at
9.M o'clock, and when he attempted to
open tho front door with her latchkey, the
key failed to work. Without suspecting
anything wns wrong, she went over to tha
saloon of her brother-in-law, at No. ISOl

Flynn went ovr with her nnd. being un

and she opened the door.
When Mrs. Flynn lighted the gas and
took a look about her, she nearly fainted
with tho 'hock occasioned by the .sight that
confronted her. The rooms looked liko
they had been vlited bj a "twister." Ev

In the rush and hurry of this life we seldom give enough thought to our
health, and it Is only when we are In the clutches of some terrible disease
that we fnllv realize how careless we have been. Ho thoughtless and
a slight attack of indigestion, which could easily have been cured at the outset.
These are only a few of the many diseases which could easily be prevented by
a little care given at the beginning.
A remedy which has effected more cures than any other medicine in the world
Is "Swanson's "5-DKOPS." It can hardly be termed a patent medicine, as it Is a sci
entifically prepared combination of snch ingredients as will act Immediately upon
the Stomach. Liver and Kidneys, purifying the blood, dissolving the uric acid and
removing it from the svstem. It strengthens the nerves and muscles and puts all of
the organs of the body'in a natural, healthy condition.
The thousands of kindly letters, similar to those above, written us by people
who have been cured after all hope was gone prove beyond qneitlon that "5-DROPS"
is the most wonderful remedy that has ever been discovered.
