In thit n-sja-ct the natives are much like the Chinese coii. Hice is the princi pal article of dki in the I'liilipiiint.

H knov that the fruitful soil, almout vithont tillage), will yield him the mvshitiea i f life. The very condi tions of hia ei litvnce breed indolence and naconcern at to the future. Tling it ia with the grout mass of the native population, brlt it must not be inferred that thore are no industrious rope nnionff the Filipinos. In every tiroftwion in Manila we find natives eiwairrd, ami everywhere they display fino LiiHineHH qualifications. In the bunk, the enstom honse, in factories and in tort8 thev are prominent. We find thfiii ciiiploycil as civil guards in Manila, as conductors on the street car li'ie mid as operatives on the railroad. 1 hey have become nkilled as workmen in all tradi s and professions. I have TiHit4.1l dozens of them at work in their places of bnsincR.s and have found many poH-oHMinK some knowledge of the Eng liidi language. In every case they dis played many distinguishing traits. Manila has a native piano maker, who constructs from home materials entirely a grade of instruments which will compare favorably with those made in the United States. The native artists and sculptors ore adepts. I have had a considerable acquaintance with a physi cian, a surgeon in Aguinaldo's army, and his knowledge of medicine is as complete as that of most graduates of American medical colleges. So it is through the whole of the life and trade of Manila and Luzon. While it is to be expected that we would find not a few who have risen above the rabble and imbibed the more advanced ideas of Eu rcpean civilization, yet it is surprising how many of these have entered into the regeneration of their fellow beings and the transformation of Manila and the Philippine. There has been much written con cerning the diseases prevalent among the natives of these islands. True it is that Luzon has its lepers, but leprosy is not prevalent on these islands to any great extent. As to the many other dis eases credited to the islands, all have been greatly exaggerated. Many of the akin diseases, or apparent diseases of the skin, are really caused by mosquito or other insect bites. The natives let theirfinger nails growtoagreat length, and it is the scratching of the insect bites with these poisonous nails that causes many of the sores. Quite a num ber of cases of deformity are seen among natives. In stature the Filipino is of the di minutive type. Between the pure na tive and the Kanaka of the Hawaiian Islands there appears to be some rela tionship. In stature, color and appear ance they are similar, and their lan guage is much the same strange jargon, In dress they are quite similar, but in this point no comparison can be made, for in all tropical climates we find much the same ideas of dress. About Manila bay we notice many distinct and novel dress customs. From the naked little pickaninny to the gray haired senor and senora we find all types of dress, some extremely scanty and others gaudy and elaborate. The native women are very fond of jewelry and showy trinkets of personal adorn ment. The natives are a musical race, and probably they have imbibed this from the Spaniards. The universal weapon of the Philip- Bullalo, pine natives is the bob. It is to the Filipino what the machete is to the Cuban, and ho always carries it in time of danger. These weapons are long, sharp knives, and in the hands of the natives, who know so well how to nse them, they are formidable both in self defense and attack upon a foe. Since the Filipino has learned the value of American money it has incited his avarice to a remarkable degree. To him our gold coin was a revelation, and he at once fell in love with it. The Spanish had no gold coins here. Only a crude paper money and the rough silver pieces and smaller fractional currency were in circulation. To get money the nativo will sell anything, even to his wife. His rifle, bolo and all he will willingly sacrifice for our glittering gold coin. William Gilbert Iewin. Manila. The Greatest Discovery Yet. W. M. Repine, editor Tiskilwa, III., "Chiel," says: "We won't keep house without Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs nnd Colds. Ex. peritnented with many others, but never got the true remedy until we used Dr. King's New Discovery. No other remedy can take its place in our home, as in it we have n certain nnd sure cure for Cottghs, Colds, Whooping Coughs, etc." It is idle to experiment with other remc dies, even if they are urged on you ns just nsgood ns l)r.

"-London Tit-Bits. ' . ..' n a ( - SOUTHKRN PINES. The City In the South, Built by New Englandcrs. Southern Pines is located on the high est known sand hill in the country. The sand is fragments from pure clear crystal quartz. It is not the dusty sand that is usually found in Florida and points South. On account of the purity of the sand, the largest experiment (arm in the United States has been established at that point. The experiments being made, are the testing of fertilizers, in regard to showing the value of different fertilizing materials. The experiments carried on in this line are much more extensive than that at Washington, by the United States Government. Agriculturists from this country and Europe .are making trips to Southern Pines, studying the different lines of experiments that are being made. The German Kali Works have contributed largely to the mainte nance of the experimental work. The great seaboard Air Line system of Rail road that runs through the most pros perous part of the South is largely inter- ested in this line of experiments. The Railroad is doing more lor the improve ment of the condition of farmers along its line than any other Railroad in the United States, and as a result, farmers from all over the country, especially in the New England States, are buying lands and locating on the Seaboard Air Line system. They have bought more than fifty thousand acres in the vicinity of Southern Pines. Special rates are given through the Merchants and Miners Steamship Company s line ana tnence over the S. A. L., lor parties coming to that territory to prospect for settling. The Seaboard Air Line has its New Eng land headquarters at 306 Washington St., Boston, Chief Industrial Agent of the S. A. L. Mr. lohn Patrick with head quarters at Pinebluff, N. C, gives infor mation to those desiring to investigate. A Western Prophecy. The year 1899 gives promise of being a record-breaker in the matter of educa tional donations. Though only seven weeks of the new year have passed, they have already brought a total of no less than $2,800,674 in the shape of dona tions to American colleges and univer sities, the principal beneficiaries being as follows : Groton academy, Massachusetts, 75,- 000. Universitv of Chicago, $308,874. Teachers college, New York. $200,000. Harvard university, $1,015,000, Whitworth college, $20,000 . Princeton universitv, $18,000. Albert Lea college, $4000. Macalester collrge, $4000. Barnard college, $10,000. Shimer academy, Illinois, $2000. Glenwood training school, $50,000. Art institute, Chicago. $100,000. Lawrence university, $1000. Pennington seminary, $5000. Pennsylvania state university, $100,- 000. Massachusett's institute of Technolo gy. $50,000. McKendree college, $50,000. St. Johnsbury academv, $10,000. Olivet college, $2500. " Iowa college, $1300. Kansas Wesleyan university, $100,000. Rochester theological seminary, $20,- 000. Armour institute, $750,000. Though the Harvard item is the lam est, it will be noticed that the bulk of the total goes to western institutions, in dicating that the educational supremacy of the east is drawing to a close. The time is not far distant when it will no longer be the fad to send Chicago boys to eastern institutions, because the uni versity ol Chicago will be acknowledged to be the peer ot Harvard and Yale, and because Armour institute will be recog nized to be in every way as thoroughly equipped as the Massachusetts institute of Technology.

"There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe," is W. H. Beard's famous painting, which has been reproduced both in this country and throughout Europe. Mr. Beard has refused $1800 for this picture, and now gives it to the gallery as a memorial of his lifelong Iriendship with its founder. "Gamins," by J. G. Brown, one of Mr. Brown's best works. This picture was purchased some years ago, at a large price, by a wealthy citizen of Springfield, Mass., G. W. Smith, the founder of the Springfield Museum. Mary Howe has for several years been one of the leading sopranos in the opera at Wiesbaden, Ger., and in the spring Dehbes' opera, "Lakme," is to be pro duced there, chiefly for her benefit. It brings out her light colorature stvle to special advantage. The Gold That Glitters. DO RICHES MAKE HAPPINESS, OR DOES HEALTH MAKE WEALTH? The richest man. cannot always be said to be the most successful, for true success is not possible without happi ness. Many a wealthy man would give all he now possesses to have the health and happiness of a young athlete. Health is not hard to get and keep if good judgment is used in caring for and supplying the needs of the system. Nature often needs assistance; you sometimes abuse nature by overtaxing your nerves, your brain, or your body, and you haven't time to relax, and take the rest that you noed. You must have outside help. Pabst Malt Extract. Iho "Best" Tonio, will supply the ex tra fuel, food, and strength; it is abso lutely pure an unequalled assistant to nature lu giving health, vitality and strength. It will make you eat and sleep woll, and cause you to feol like yourself again, or perhaps, better than you ever felt in your life. The " Best" lonio was awarded the 100 points of porfootion at the World's Fair, and was the only Malt Extract which received that honor. Your nearest druggists car. ry Pabst Malt Extract, The "Bert Tonio In stock. Anecdotes of Famous flen Oliver Wendell Homes used to be an amateur photographer. When he pre sented a picture to a Iriend, he wrote on the back of it, "Taken by 0. W. Holmes & Sun." The following is a remark of Sydney Smith, made on hearing a little girl read who presisted in reading "partridges lor "patriarchs." Said the great wit, ' She is determined on making game of the pa triarchs." A prominent writer declares this to be the most perlect pun he had ever heard. Mark Twain once addressed an audi ance in the interest of his fellow-townsman, Gen. Joseph Hawley, who was a candidate lor reelection to the United States Senate, and said, in the course of a droll address: "Gen. Hawley deserves your support, although he has about as much influence in purifying the Senate as a bunch of flowers would have in sweeten ing a glue factory. But he's all right ; he never would turn any poor beggar away from his dooremptvhanded. Healways gives them something, almost without excepting a letter of introduction to me, urging me to help them." Ladies' Home Journal. Dr. Hills, of Chicago, who has succeed ed Dr. Abbott in Plymouth Church, Brooklyn, has a colloquial style in his essay-writing that suggests Henry Ward Beecher, and will probably suit the taste of the Plymouth constituency. In a pa per on "Ruskin's Message to the Cen tury" he remarked speaking ol men's dis position to look upon art as a fad to be leftto women: "Man has a genius for egotism. He can take the columnar I and turn it into a hitching post for wo men to tie to." He told a story about a young man named Lord, who called him self Lord, Jr., so that he might not be mistaken for the Almighty. It is not generally known that a re ward was once offered for the late Sena tor Morrill's life. He told the story himself at a meeting of the Vermont His torical Society about four years ago. "In the early days ot the late war," he said, "my picture was put forth by a rebel Vir ginia newspaper, with an advertisement offering a reward for me, dead or alive, of $25. That was usually offered for the recovery of runaway slaves. They de scribed me as a person who would be expected to have been the author of Yan kee Doodle rather than of the infernal tariff of 1861. The picture wasof course pleasing to the old masters of the South, being after the manner of Hogarth, and I have not learned that it has been made immortal by preservation in any of their historical societies. It will be for poster ity to say, if posterity should ever trouble itself to say anything, whether or not Vermonters made a mistake in not sur rendering me for the $25 Virginia re ward." Among all the mocking horrors of chronic indi- Festion and iver com plaint, none is more unbear able than that dreadful sen sation of gid diness in which the whole world, indoors or out. seems to swim around before the sight in the most sickening and nauseating manner until one's entire being becomes faint and wretched with inde scribable misery. "I was suffering with what the doctors called chronic indigestion, torpid liver, and vertigo " writes Mrs. Martha E. Bnrliam, of Newville Prince George Co., Va. "The doctor did me no good. My symptoms were giddiness in the head, pains in the chest and an uneasy feeling all over. I also suffered with female weakness. " I was nil run-down and could not do any work at all without suffering from nervous at tacks. I wrote to Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., for advice. He advised to use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and ' Favorite Pre scription.' I did so, and used five bottles of each, and I cannot express the benefit I have received from these medicines. I gained in health and strength. When I commenced to use the medicines I weighed only m pounds, now I weigh 140 pounds. I thank God and Dr. Pierce for my recovery. My husband and friends all thought I would die but to-day 1 am a well woman." The wonderful effects of this great " Dis covery" are genuine and permanent; they are not due to any false or alcoholic stimu lus for it contains no alcohol. Real sub stantial healthy musuclar strength is built up; the stomach and liver are toned; the blood is purified and vitalized ; the nerves are steadied; the entire constitution is re juvenated and renewed. In case of constipation, there is nothing quite so effective as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. They act comfortably though surely; they do not gripe; you do not be come a slave to their use. Their effect is lasting. There are countless substitutes: but nothing else is like them. Artificial Human Eyes (df'-'' 323 Washington Street, ".''Willi-. n M ,k nk.u n.....' Odp.
