Jr WHlt MRS. PINKHAM to Help Sick Women When Doctors Fall. How gladly would men fly to wo man s aid did they but understand a Woman s feelings, trials, sensibilities, and peculiar organic disturbances. Those things are known only to women, and the aid a man would give k not at his command. To treat a ea.se properly it is neces- 1 Bary to know all about it, and full 1 information, many times, cannot be given by a woman to her family pby- Mks. G. H. Chappell. sician. She cannot bring herself to tell everything, and the physician is at a constant disadvantage. This is why, for the past twenty-five years, thousands of women have been con fiding their troubles to Mrs. Pinkham, and whose advice has brought happi ness and health to countless women in the United States. Mrs. Chappell, of Grant Park, 111., whose portrait we publish, advises all suffering women to seek Mrs. Pink ham’s advice and use Lydia E. Pink ham’s Vegetable Compound, as they cured her of inflammation of the ovaries and womb ; she. therefore, speaks from knowledge, and her experience ought to give others confidence. Mrs. Pink ham’s address is Lynn, Mass., and her advice is absolutely free. 4aoo - V ivl SHOES \Wf M -V ONION MADE. \|. I For More Than a Quarter of a Century ■be reputation of W. L.

MAJAJE, THE WHITE QUEEN. .Mysterious Woman of Caucasian Type Who Ruled Africans. For more than half a century the rainmaker for all the native tribes south of the Zambesi river, in South Africa, was Majaje, the White Queen of the Makatese tribe, which lived In the woodbush in the northern part of the Transvaal. The Zulus, the Hot | tentots, the Kaffirs, the Basutos, and [ scores of other tribes recognized her I as the great rainmaker, and whenever | there was a drouth in their provinces they sent their emissaries to her with requests for rain. The tales which white men heard concerning her led them to believe that Majaje was a myth, and Rider Hagard elaborated the report in his novel “She,” which had for its lead ing character mysterious white woman who ruled over a race of blacks some where in central Africa. Haggard wrote his novel in the eighties, while he was in South Africa, and long be fore it was established that the white queen was not a myth. The fact that such a woman really lived was proved by three white men who talked witG her, and one of these men, the late Piet Joubert, commander-general of the boer army, was authority for this account of the woman. Henning Pretorious, one of the Transvaal’s first commander-generals, and probably the most fearless boer that ever lived, returned from one of his frequent journeys into unknown regions of the Transvaal in the latter part of 1889 and reported to his gov ernment that he had succeeded in seeing Majaje. In a voluminous re port which he made of his journey he stated that the woman was queen of a section of the Makatese tribe and that her capital was surrounded by an al most unpenetrable forest of small thorn trees. On the outskirts of this forest he -was met by a large number of well-armed tribesmen, who asked him and his companions to depart from the neighborhood immediately. Pretorius refused to leave and insisted upon seeing the queen. After a long discussion, during which many messengers were sent to the queen’s kraal, Pretorious was granted permission to visit the mon arch. He was disarmed and his com panions were left behind under guard of a targe number of tribesmen. He was led along a narrow winding path through the bush and after a journey of about 30 miles he came to the queen’s royal kraal. In his report he described the woman minutely and at great length. He said she was abso lute monarch over her people and she undoubtedly had the power of life and death over them, and that she had es tablished a government that was far in advance of any negro government he had ever seen. The most astonishing part of his re port was that the woman was not a negress. He described her as having straight, soft hair of a light brown color, thin lips and light blue eyes. The color of her skin was not black, but as white as that of a Portugese Pretorious stated that she refused to tell her age, or anything concerning her antecedents, and added that she appeared to be more than 100 years old —perhaps 115. In 1894 the Makatese tribe formed an aliance with Magoeba, the king of the woodbush Kaffirs, who lived near the same district, and Majaje’s people were dragged into a rebellion against the boers. Joubert, the commander general of the boer army was sent against the rebellious natives and he took with a him a small number of Swazis, who had been driven into the Transvaal from their native country by Umbandine. the father of the late King Bunu, who acquired the fatal habit of drinking five quarts of cham pagne a day. v When Joubert and his forces reached the “betovert” (bewiched) bush the warlors of Majaje and Magoeba at tacked them and fought valiantly for several weeks. The natives were de feated finally and fled Into the bush and mountains. The Swazis then asked Joubert for permission to follow the rebels and it was granted. When they returned, several lays afterward, the Swazis brought with them the heads of Magoeba and several of his indunas, or headsmen, in order to prove to the boers that they had really been victorious. The day after the return of the vic torious Swazis several messengers came from Majaje bringing peace of ferings in the shape of two ivory tusks and a beautiful white ox. The emissaries declared that Majaje had been mislead by Magoeba and tfiat she had no desire to be an enemy to the boers. Joubert told the messengers to tell their queen that if she would surendcr her arms unconditionally and permit someone to go to her kraal the war would be ended. In her reply she accepted the first condition, but de clined to allow any one to visit her kraal, adding, however, that she would come out and grant an audience to the boer leader. The following morning the bush re sounded with the beating of drums and the shrill noise of crude wind in struments. Forerunners emerged from the bush and announced the com ing of the queen. When the head of the procession reached General Joubert the priests deposited the palanquin on the ground , and drew aside the curtains that con cealed the queen. She reclined on a beautiful quaggi skin and was clothed in a varigated costume of skins, furs and bead work. Joubert observed her closely and found that Henning Pre torious’ description of her was accu rate in every detail. The woman had light, soft hair, thin lins, blue eyes and a complexion as light as that of the majority of white persons who have lived in the tropics for many years. Many persons have attempted to ex plain the mysterv of the queen’s an cestry and the result has been that many strange tales -are current in the country, each being heralded as the true solution. The most plausible the ory is the one that General Joubert ad vanced. From some old chieftans he learned that there was a tradition among the Meakatese that many gen erations ago a large number of white men had come into the Zambesi region to dig gold. These men incurred the enmity of the blacks, who massacred all except one or two. General Jou bert believed, as did the chieftans, that Majaje w.s the descendant of one of these sun Ivors, but the native tra dition doeo not explain the process by which one rose to the position of ruler of the tribe. Proof of the fact that gold was dug in that neighborhood has been found in scores of places along the Zambesie, where in recent years many old shafts have been un covered. —Howard C. Hillegas, in New York Evening Post. AMERICAN BLUE BOOK. The Heraldic Claims of a Thousand American Families. Austere Republicans in the United States have sometimes twitted their more ambitious countrymen with an unbecoming pride of pedigree; and the American Armoury and Blue Book, which has just been issued by John Matthews, of Chauneery lane, certainly suggests that an interest in family history is by no means con fined to the haughty aristocracies of Europe. Here we have brought together the heraldic claims of nearly a thousand trans-Atlantic families, with brief biographies of their heads and an in dication of their descent from dis tinguished settlers of Colonial days. Indeed, it is not in the least surpris ing that a large and increasing num ber of Americans should be attached to the study of ancestry. We are so accustomed to think of the United States as anew country that we are apt to forget that it is in fact rapidly growing old. It is well over three centuries singe Virginia took its name from Queen Elizabeth, and very nearly as long since the Mayflower sailed from Plymouth. Independence, e% r en, is a century and a quarter old this year. There are dozens of families in our own peerage and bar onetage which cannot trace their pedi grees as far back as the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers; yet there are myriads of descendants of these original settlers in the Atlantic, states. If ancestry Is to count for anything at all —and it is only the ignorant or the envious who make light of it —a descent, begun in such romantic circumstances, from the pioneers of a great people is in itself a distinction, and that many Americans think so is indicated by the number of societies established to keep alive the memory of events of which the posterity of those who took part in them may well ba proud. Thus we have the May flower Descendants club, the Colonial Dames of America, the Founders’ and Patriots’ Society, Sons of Deleware, Descendants of Col -ial Governors of Connecticut, Daugmers of Holland Dames (for “descendants of the ancient and honorable families of New York”), the Colonial Wars club, Daughters of the Confederacy, and even the Military and Naval Order of (he Spanish war. These organiza tions are in some sense the outward signs of an aristocracy which has long existed in America. In may be dif ficult. perhaps, to connect an Augus tine Washington or a Myles Standish of the present day—we find both names in Mr. Matthew's interesting book —with the railway magnates or the poik king. But between a re publican constitution and the aristo cratic idea there is no necessary antagonism. Rome was a republic once, and the commonwealths of medleaval Italy were essentially aristocratic. They had no monarchs, yet they created an hereditary nobility, just as their descendant, the comic-opera republic of San Marino, does still. It is the severeign power, and not the mere personal sovereign, that Is the foun tain of honor. The United States might establish a titular nobility to morrow if it chose, and yet retain all the essentials of a republic. Titles, indeed, are neither unknown nor ill esteemed by many of Its citizens. In the Lord Fairfax it has long possessed a line of English peers who own allegiance to the stars and stripes; several persons who have Inherited continental titles are to be found In the American Armoury; while a New York lady is a descendant of the im mortal Cid himself. It is inevitable that a land which is still being strengthened by exten sive immigration should be very mixed in blood and race, but there is not much democratic taint in the “first families” of Virginia, New Eng land or New York. They still inter marry among themselves and form. In | some measure, a caste apart—the “Norman blood" of the western world. Many of them, indeed, are the de scendants, like the Washingtons, the Calverts and the Standlshes, of ancient and gentle Saxon stocks, or, like the Van Rensselaers, the Roose ! velts, _ the Bayards and other “Knickerbocker families.” of the sturdy dogged Dutch Protestants who peopled New Amsterdam.—London Standard. TREE WHICH OWNS ITSELF. 'A Magnificent Oak That Has Become a Property Holder. Athens, Ga.. has one remarkable tree, said a congressman of that state. This is a tree which is a property holder. The records at the county courthouse shows deeds conveying the tree and all the land within eight feet of Jt to the tree. It is a magnificent oak and seems to stand straighter and hold its head more proudly than any of the trees around it. Certainly, it is ranked above the common trees of the world, for it cannot be touched against its will; that is if the conditions of the deed are carried out. The facts are these; Many years ago, Colon* ! W. H. Jackson watched its growth, and when he saw it stand ing in its magnifl.cent proportions lie was pained to think that after his death it might fall into the hands of people who would destroy it. Believ ing that the only way to save the tree from the ax of the woodsman was to deed the tree to itself, he did so, hav ing a deed recorded in the clerk's of fice, witnessing that “for and in con sideration of the great love I bear said tree (giving its location), and a great desire that the said tree be protected for all time, I convey to said oak tree entire of itself and all land within eight feet of ft on all sides.” Now*, I suppose that this tree is about the only one in this country which belongs wholly to itse’f. If there is another anywhere, I have never heard of it. —New York Sun. Do Tour Feet Ache and Durnf Shake into your shoes, Allen’s Foot- Ease, a powder for the feet. It makes tight or New Shoes fe*!
