Chief Surgeon of Hospital at the Mouth of the Congo River Visits in Denison. There was a man in Denison last Tuesday evening whose fame as a physician and surgeon is extended far in the country of the South Congo, on the west coast of Africa. He came with little herald, on short notice, and spoke on mission work in the dark continent. Over twenty years ago Dr. Franklin P. Lynch, a young man with a brilliant future as a rising sur geon in Connecticut, possed of excep tional education, decided to make his life work that of a medical mission ary. He was assigned to the Congo, and went there to learn the language and try to uplift a people devoid of honesty and morality. He is now at the head of the great hospital at Kukimvika, which is at the mouth of the Congo river. The hospital has thirty beds, but often sixty patients needing help. As a sample of what must be done on the foreign field, the Baptist society allows $250 a year for the support of this hospital and Dr. Lynch not over $750, one-fourth of which must be paid out for customs duties. It has been by curing their diseases that the natives are won to the missionaries and willing to send their children to the schools and hear the bible religion. Dr. Lynch is a mah of high culture, well up in his profession, capable to earn large fees in America, but willing to devote his life for the primitive people of the Congo. His talk at the Baptist church was uplifting and instructive. Jurors Drawn. The following named jurors have been drawn and will appear for the April term of court: R. W.

Mourning the loss of old-time man4 ners, an aged Englishman said th« other day: "Boys are not like thar used to be. If they do not Ilka a| schoolmaster they show It nowadaysj by treating him with studiously cold! politeness. Why, I remember when l! was at Eaton a lot of us getting hold) of a master who taught us mathemafcj ies and whom we all cordially detesW ed, and holding him by his heels oral' Barnes' pool bridge until we saw lai the distance another master coming In our direction, when we gently loosed our victim and let him slid# headforemost Into the water." A New York man writes: "I wa» taught to offer my seat to ladles when traveling. I foolishly did so a few days ago in the subway. All I got in re turn from the 'lady' was a glassy! stare, a devilish grin and 'Oh, sit down,, my boy.. I don't want your seat' And1 I am JuBt thirty!" In the Society Islands two persona on meeting salute by rubbing the ends of their noseB together, and the saluta* tlon Is followed by each taking the hand of the other and rubbing it upon his own nose and mouth. Moors of Morocco ride at full speed toward a stranger, as If they Intended to run him down, and as soon as they have approached near they suddenly stop and fire a pistol over his head.
