Turner, 215 south fifth street, says: "I usually lie on my back while sleeping, and in the morning when first getting up the pains were so severe and my back so lame I could scarcely move. The kidney secretions were irregular and often distressing. I was in bad shape when I happened to hear about Doan's Kidney Pills and got them at A. G. Lnken's drug store. I was re lieved of the pain and soreness after a few doses and the secretions wera regular and natural." For sale by all dealers. Price 50c. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, N.

OREGON'S PAUL REVERE How Leslie Matlock Saved Two Hundred Lives. SHOUTED A WARN LUG- AS HE RODE Hero of tlie Heppner Cloudburst Describe Ilia Wild Mght Ride Through Willow Creek Valley With RnaliiiiK Waters In Close Pursuit. Never Stopped In Ills Mne 31 lie Gallop. Leslie Matlock, a hardy stockman of Heppner, Ore., saved the lives of more than 200 people after the flood on that fateful Sunday evening of June 14 last had overwhelmed the town and destroyed 300 souls. Chased by the flood, be saddled and mounted his sturdy mare and galloped for miles down the valley of Willow creek to warn the dwellers in three towns, Lexington, Tettysville and Douglas, besides others who dwelt along the creek road. Today Oregon Is hailing him as a second Paul Revere. He tells the story for the New York World in part as follows: Any one man who knows the coun try as well as I do and who can ride a horse could have done the same thing. We none of us guessed what waa coming. The people who live down Willow creek were spending Sunday evening quietly in their homes. We all wanted rain in the stock region, and we were getting it. We never expected it at Heppner. Pretty nearly every man, woman and child had turned in for the night. It had been raining all day, but that was a good sign. Nobody had the slightest thought of danger. Then came that awful torrent of water black, fierce roaring water that made your knee tremble when you heard it and made men turn pale when they realized what they would have to face. My father's farm was among the first to go buried under twenty feet of hissing water. t The house, the barn&. every stick of wood on the place all was swept away before a man could think twice. People were drowning before our eyes, and we could see the bodies swept down in the front of the flood. Thank God, I remembered! -Willow creek!" I thought. "Hun dreds are down there who may drown Just as others have drowned in Hepp ner. Perhaps I can get there first." There wrasn't a telegraph; there wasn't a telephone. It was a case of riding down the valley ahead of that awful avalanche of water. I don't think I ever saddled my horse so fast in my life. Nine miles away were lives to be saved, and I the only man who could save them. Off we went, mj bully good mare and I. Behind us came the water. You could hear It gathering strength. It rolled and roared against the sides of the valley like big cannon in a battle. Once when I looked behind I saw something big and white leap up into the black sky. It was the torrent hit ting a house and dashing up just as the surf does when it strikes a cliff. Every time I came to a house I yelled: "Run for your life! The flood's coming!" I never stopped. It would have cost me my life and the lives of all those 200 people farther down the valley. The road was so dark and stony that we stumbled all the time, but my plucky little horse never fell once or else it would have been all up with us. Closer and closer behind came the rush of that infernal water. There was no time to pick your way. I just hung tight and trusted to my horse to get me through all right. The miles went by in the darkness, but nearer and nearer came that thunderous roar. More than once I thought it was all up with us. We were going close to Lexington now. Ahead I could see the lights. Not a soul in all those quiet houses guessed what was coming. Many peo ple had gone to bed. A few hundred yards behind you could hear the flood, louder and louder. My horse and I were racing the waters. We got there first. "Run for your lives!" I yelled. "The flood's coming! You've only got a min ute! Don't stop to save anything!" I never stopped galjoping. People saw I was in earnest, thank God, and saved themselves. In about thirty sec onds, without stopping to bring a thing along, they went on the dead run for the hills, fathers carrying their babies and mothers running along with the other little ones by the hand. There was plenty of high ground back of the town, and in five minutes they were safe. But there hadn't been a moment to spare. Already the flood was tum bling in on the town, first two feet deep, then ten and then twenty. "Don't forget Pettysville!" shouted one man to me as he took to the hills, carrying two babies and helping his wife with another. "I know! I know!" I remember an swering as we tore down the road. There were ranches on both sides of the gully and people in all of them. I did nothing but shout and try to hang on in the saddle. Behind me, faster and faster, I could bear the water com ing. Sometimes when It reached, a wide place in the creek ,or a big hole it took a few moments to fill it up, and that's the way I gained on the water. On, on we rode. The night was pitch black now and the rain was falling almost like a cloudburst. I thought I'd never do it, but I did. I got to lone and the telephone. That was better than my horse. I called up Douglas and then every ranch that bad a con nection, and the people had lots of time to save themselves. If the poor people of Heppner had only had the same warning they would all be alive now. THE JUNGLE MAN' While I was hunting in the province of Bengal with officers belonging to the Seventh native infantry we got word one day that a wild man had been seen in a jungle ten miles away. The man was a native who had served for several years as a soldier, and he had a good military record and was known to be of peaceful dis position. One day while on a scout through the forest with his company he was bitten on the neck by a spider. The wound gave him great pain, and he was sent back to the hospital for treatment. He was under the sur geon's care for ten days and was discharged as cured, but one morning when at drill he suddenly began whooping and shouting and acting in a singular manner. When his com rades attempted to restrain him he be came violent, and, casting them off, he bolted across the'parade and down the road. He was pursued, but he gained the forest, a mile away, ahead of all, and was successful in hiding himself. A long search had been made for him at the time, but without avail. We at once moved across the coun try and located in a village, and next morning a dozen natives were sent out on a scout. They were back before noon vvith the news that the wild man had moved his retreat about five miles to the east. He was evidently afraid of us. He had taken refuge in another jungle near another village, and we broke camp and rode down to the place and beat up the thickets for hours. We caught sight of the man once or twice, but he was a long way off and acted as if he suspected a trap. Next day he was twelve miles away, and in the course of a week he had trav eled sixty miles. When he moved we moved after him. We attempted no trick and made no demonstration to alarm or anger him. Our persistent pursuit had the Effect of putting him in a passion, however, for on the sixth day of the chase, as we were on route to a village near which he had gone into hiding, he entered the place shouting in fury and brained five people with his club. He had stripped off most of his clothing and was naked from the waist up. After killing the people he fired sev eral huts and ran away and hid in a ravine. It was now plainly evident that we must change our tactics. If the man was enraged he might attack us at any moment, and if he did so we should have to fire on him in self de fense. The ravine in which he was hiding was about a mile long, and at the lower end it opened Into a path much used by the natives. If the wild man was not hunted out or alarmed he would probably come down the ravine and enter this path. After looking the ground over it was decided to dig a pitfall and set some traps along the path, and soon after noon a force of natives wras set at work. They dug a pit twenty feet long by fourteen deep, and when ready it was covered over the same as if to catch a tiger. A few yards to north and south of the pit we arranged nooses which led over the limbs of trees, and by sundown we felt sure of our man if he came that way. Two soldiers and three natives were hidden near the pit to act as sentinels and give the alarm, and all was quiet in the camp and village at the usual hour. At 2 o'clock in the morning we were turned out by an alarm from the sen tinels, and our whole force at once has tened to the pit. The wild man had come down the ravine and fallen into the pit. Notwithstanding its depth he was out again in a moment, and but for the trap on the north side we should have lost him. He ran Into that, was caught by the leg and sus pended in the air, and when we ar rived he was screaming and shouting and cursing in a way to make one's hair stand up. He was defenseless, but for a long time no one dared to go near him. He made the most tremendous efforts to escape, and but for our throwing noosed ropes over his head and draw ing them tight he would soon have re gained his liberty. When we finally had him fast and secure he had tired himself out and was a pitiable object to behold. He had been heard to use a few IJnglish words, but no one had heard him make sentences before. His speech came back to him as we stood around him, and he used many of the commands given a soldier at drill. We remained in camp four days after capturing the wild man, hoping to sub due him and make him presentable at headquarters, but he was worse than a wild beast. Not a stitch of clothing could be kept on him, and he had to be bound hand and foot all the time. lie preferred raw meat to cooked, and when fed he would growl and roar as if the sight of meat put him in a frenzy. The surgeon with us could make nothing of his case, and we finally got a cart and started for home to turn the poor fellow over to the proper authori ties. On the second day of the journey the cart broke down, and as It did so the wild man burst his bonds and es caped into the jungle. We put in ten days hunting for him, but got no trace and finally abandoned all pursuit. Six months later he was seen once or twice in the foothills to the north, but no pursuit was organized, and if not dead he Is today wandering about the forests and jungles like a wild beast. How he could have escaped death during the two years I write of is a singular thing, as the country was in fested with poisonous serpents and savage beasts, but when he was our captive he had not a scar on his body and was evidently In the best of health. M. QUAD. RICH HINDOO'S MISSION. Peculiarly Garbed Forelsruer "t Itadrlnc Methods oC Agriculture. For a few days past there has been een about Washington a strange look ing figure in a flowing yellow robe and wearing a white turban, says the New York Times. The man's swarthy face and peculiar waddling manner of loco motion, added to the striking garb, have attracted much attention to him. It Is learned that he is a Hindoo of much wealth who'is traveling privately over the world to study different sys tems of agriculture, with the purpose of teaching his countrymen how to raise enough to feed themselves and avoid the awful famines which period ically decimate the population. His name is Aagarika Dharmapala, and he Is a priest of Ceylon. He re cently called on Secretary Wilson at the department of agriculture and had a long interview on American methods of farming. The Hindoo said he had been advised to visit Tuskegee, and he was convinced that his people needed a school like it to teach them how to farm. Aagarika said that India and Ceylon had been buying American windmills, pumps, carpenters' tools and dairy ap pliances, but tne people knew little of modern ways of farming. Secretary Wilson told him much of how farming was carried on in the west, where irri gation is depended on for success, and his visitor went away pleased with what he had learned. NEW ARMY MEDICAL DEVICE Testa to Be Made In Transporting: Material at Fort Ililey Maneuvers. Acting at the request of the surgeon general of the army, the war depart ment has made arrangements for the testing of a device for transporting sur gical material and medical stores in the field at maneuvers at Fort Riley in September, says the Kansas City Star. The d'vi'-e has been constructed at Washington barracks. The surgical material and medical stores are to be placed in tin receptacles which are fit ted to wooden eases. The cases are constructed so that they can be at tached to the bottom of ambulances on each side and In the rear of the front wheels. The device has already been tested, and objections were found on the ground that the metallic ca jes were not water proof. Improvements have been made, and it is believed that the objections have been overcome. The cases are so constructed that they may be removed from the ambulances and their contents heated over a camp fire. TO NATIONALIZE CHINESE. The Object of the Quock Man Wool, a. Sew Society. Branches are about to te established throughout America of the Quock Mun Wool, which, literally translated, means "nation, men, society." or socie ty of patriots, says a San Francisco dispatch to the Kansas City Star. It is an organization of Chinese who believe in the spreading of education from their native land and its defense against the incursions of foreign pow ers, particularly Russia. A large and influential meetiug of Chinese was recently held In San Fran cisco. The adoption of methods re quired to place China in her rightful place in the political world was urged by many speakers. An appeal for prac tical help in the form of money met with a liberal response. This is the most decided action ever taken by the Chinese in the United States looking toward a nationalistic movement. NEW HOUSE ON HIS LAND. Boone Connty (Mo.) Farmer Made llich by the Flood. As a result of the recent flood in Missouri P. C. Nuckles of Rocheport, thirteen miles west of Columbia, Mo., is in possession of a story and a half house newly furnished, says the St Louis Republic. The water was all over Mr. Nuck les' farm and drove him to higher ground. When he returned the other day, he found the house on a piece of bottom land. It is in good condition and appears to have been recently built. All the furniture and clothing had been carried to the second floor and are only slightly damaged. Suicide's Breastpin Stuck In Rnglnc. While cleaning an engine at the North White Plains yard the other day an employee of the Harlem Railroad company found the diamond breastpin worn by Mrs. Mary Agnes Hull Potter when she was killed the other evening, says a New York special dispatch to the Philadelphia Press. The pin was tightly fastened on the front of the en gine cab between the boiler and the window. The pin of the brooch was stuck into the cab nearly a half inch. A railroad man said that it was the strangest incident he had ever heard of In connection with death on the rail, that the pin should have gone with such force as to imbed itself In the cab of the engine, which, since killing Mrs. Totter, has run several hundred miles and made 300 station stops. Santos-Dumont's Mgrht Fligrht. M. Santos-Dumont late the other night made a nocturnal aerial flight as far as the fashionable Outdoor club grounds on the He de Puteaux. in the Seine, says a Paris cable dispatch to the New York Herald. He had a pow erful acetylene lamp in his air ship, which flashed on the fashionable throng enjoying the cool night air at' that fa vorite society resort. Owing to the dark and mist over the river he had to be led by the guide rope part of the way.. As I'snal! She What on earth has your wife been talking about? He She's been talking about thre hours. Yonkera Statesman. Brought On Sciatic Rheumatism. Nervous Prostration Followed. Dr. Miles Nervine Gave BacK Health. "I was laid up during the winter of 94-95 with sciatic rheumatism and nervous prostra tion brought on by a severe attack of La Grippe. The rheumatic pains were so se vere at times that it was impossible for me to turn in bed. I was unable to sleep. I had two of our best physicians in attendance, took all the advertised remedies for trouble of this kind but ot no help whatever until I took Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine. Six bottles restored me to health; I am better than for years; in fact am entirely relieved. I can say with a clear conscience that it was Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine that restored me to health. When the pains of sciatica and rheumatism were most severe I secured almost immediate relief by the use of Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills. I have recommended Dr. Miles' Remedies to many people."
