An Old Sailor.Who Telia of His Can
nibalistic Feat In the
"Whale Oil Gus," whose baptismal'
name is Augustus E. Folger, has added
his name to the list of distinguished
hicago visitors. As "Whale Oil Gus"
expresses it, he has arctics for a "spell
of years and many a time eat man."
This is the history of his life in a
autsliell. It is not that he brags of
having eaten man nor that the icy
north is conducive of the cannibalistic
instincts, but that he has lived without
the pales of civilization and has been
known to dine "a la carte."
Augustus E. Folger hailed originally
from Nantucket, Mass., therefore his
love of the sea. He has been a whaler
for 40 years and his father and grand
father were before him. When he
shipped as cabin boy at the age of 11
years it was to become a hero as well
as a sailor. He fell overboard one
night during that voyage and after
treading water 18 hours was rescued'
just in time. That settled his'career,
and four shipwrecks with their attend
ing adventures left a less powerful im
pression than did his first accident.
"I have sailed every sea," he explains,
"and' stopped at every island, and if
there is one brig-harboring port in the
world that I don't know about I'm no
longer 'Whale Oil Gus.'
He is on his way to Kansas City,
where he is to give a series of lectures
upon the world as he has viewed it.

WOMEN IN TROUBLE.
The Approach of Motherhood is the
Occasion of Much Anxiety to All.
Every woman dreads the ordeal
through which she must pass in becom
ing a mother. The pain and suffering
which is in store for her is a source of
constant anxiety, fear and dread, to
say nothing of the danger which the
coming incident entails. The joyous
anticipations with which she looks for
ward to baby's coming gives way to an
indescribable dread of tne ordeal when
she fully realizes the critical and trying
event which will soon approach ana
have to be endured.
Women should hail with delight a
remedy which insures to them im
munity from the pain, suffering and
danger incidental to child-bearing.
Such a remedy is now offered, and
women need not fear longer the hour of
childbirth. "Mother's Friend"—is a
scientific liniment—and if used before
confinement, gently,and surely prepares
the body for the great requirements
and changes it is undergoing, insures
mother and child, and
takes her through the event with com
parative ease and comfort. This won
derful remedy is praised by every
woman who haa used it.
What woman is not interested in
"Mother's Friend?" This wonderful
remedy has been tested and its price

thousands of happy mothers who
have used it during the most critical
period of woman's life—the approach
and culmination of motherhood.
It haa won their everlasting praise,

General King Says Filipinos Will
Keep Up Guerilla Warfare
And That It Will Require a Large
Force to Entirely Subdue
He Praises the Volunteers as Ca
pable and Accomplished
With No Limit to Their Courage.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 3.—Brigadier
General Charles King, who returned
home on the transport City of Pueblo,
owing to ill health, in an interview said:
'•The situation in the Philippines is
most serious. The people of those islands
will keep up a guerilla warfare and
there is no telling when the hostilities
will cease. They retire to the fast
nesses of their mountain retreats when
they are whipped and hide in the jun
gles. Subsisting on practically nothing,
they have no need for a base of sup
plies It will necessitate a large force
of men to subjugate them com
pletely. The war in the Philippines
is by no means ended. Their entrench
ments were works of military engineer
ing and construction equal to the best
that the most civilized military na
tions have produced. Under the Span
ish regime the Filipino learned some
thing of war and we are receiving
evidence of this every day.
"The volunteers who fought in the
Philippines are a splendid lot of men,
capable and accomplished fighters.
They behaved like veterans when under
fire, and there is no limit to their cour
age. Their record in that awful coun
try will adorn pages of American his
tory recently made and yet unwritten."
General King will remain in this city
for a f^w days and then leave for the

vehicles of various kinds.
Mr. Hoadley said that Boston capital
ists were behind the corporation that is
preparing to enter the Twin Cities field
in competition with old time modes of
street traffic, but he declined to give
the names of the gentlemen interested.
There will be two corporations for the
handling of passenger traffic. One is to
be known as the Autocab company and
the other, which will do a general bag
gage and freight transfer business, is to
be called the Autotruck company.
Mr. Hoadley said the International
Power company of Providence, R. I.,
of which Joseph Leiter is the president,
has the contract for the manufacture of
a large number of motor cabs and
trucks for the west, a considerable por
tion of which he believed were destined
for the Twin Cities.
Work under this contract is being
pushed and before long some of the
vehicles will be ready for shipment.

THE LION-TAMER'S JOB.
Who Haa Dees Bitten Fortjr«
"Seven Times Daring His Dan
"Eternal vigilance is the price of im
munity from bites," said a lion tamer
recently to a New York Telegraph man.
"Although my lions do not often catch
me, they do with a frequency sufficient
for all practical purposes. Within
three months I have been bitten twice
on the leg and once'on my right arm.
Altogether in my career 1 have been
bitten something like 47 times. But
lion tamers get used to such Httle
"The most serious accident I ever ex
perienced was when I was bitten almost
through the right thigh. With good
treatment I soon recovered. There is
no better remedy for an animal bite
than lukewarm water and plenty of
salt, and by using them I have invari
ably escaped blood poisoning. I am al
waj's armed when I enter a cn^e, though
my audience may not know this, and on
five occasions when the lions became
maddened and I saw death staring me
in the face I have had to shoot to kill.
"I have found the Asiatic lion the
easiest to tame and the safest to han
dle. The Nubian lion is more treaeher
ous than a tiger and when he bites he
takes a big piece. Males are easier to
tame than are the females, and cubs are
not as easily managed as is generally
AN ODD CATCH.
How Mischievous Middy Fooled an
The followers of Izaak Walton on
board a man-of-war are wont to ply the
gentle art (with a line alone) from over
the ship's side during the evening, says
the Cornhill. A sublieutenant, who was
not particularly liked by his junior
messmates, was one day so engaged,
when a midshipman, seeing the line de
pending from the "chains" above,
reached out of one of the main deck
ports and gave it a couple of violent
tugs, in imitation of a fish biting. Up
the liue was hauled with alacrity, but,
of course, with no result.
Once again the "sub" essayed to catch
this big fish that had given him so heavy
a bite. This time the middy's plan was
more elaborate, for, getting a compan
ion to keep the necessary strain upon
the upper portion, he hauled up the
lower part of the fishing line and at
tached to the hooks an old shoe, an
empty bottle, a holy stone and a sardine
tin. Having carefully lowered these to
the full extent of the line, he gave it a
more powerful pull than ever, and the
expectant fisherman above hauled in as
fast as he could, hand over hand.
But his language when he discovered
the nature of his "catch" is too much
to ask even an unfortunate compositor
to set up in cold type.
It la an Eafllsh Watch That Varies
Only One-Third of Sec
A watch of remarkable perfection is
described in the London Times, its dis
tinction resting on the fact of its hav
ing just gained the Kew certificate of
"Class A, especially good," with the ex
traordinary mark of 88.1 out of a possi
ble 100. To win the latter a watch
would have to be absolutely perfect as
a timekeeper, a result admitted to be
scarcely within the range of practical
This watch, an all-English pocket
chronometer, has a mean variation of
daily rate amounting to only one-third
of a second, and the mean difference be
tween the extreme gaining and losing
rates to four seconds. The makers at
tribute this result to the use of a re
volving escapement, or tourbillou, a de
vice in which the frame that carries the
escapement is made to revolve slowly
but continuously in the main frame by
the action of the watch, thus reducing
the error in timekeeping from change
of position—a piece of mechanism
which does not materially increase the
complication of the watch, involving,
in fact, the addition of one wheel only.
While the marks of this watch for
temperature compensation are not
claimed to be unsurpassed—as many as
18.7 having been recorded out of 20—
those for smallness in variation in daily
rate and for absence of positional er
rors are unusually good.
