LIVE IN SAVAGE STATE.
Mongolian Race Has Made Little Ad vance in Centuries. Samoyeds, a race of Mongolians in aabltlng the shores of the Arctic •cean. maintain themselves by hunt ing and Ashing. They make use of the same implements in bone and •tone, besides cherishing the same su perstitions. as were current in the •tone age among the Inhabitants of western Europe. They clothe them selves in reindeer skins. In Ane weath er they wear the hair outside, and when It is wet the tunic is reversed. This interesting race is gradually dy ing out. owing partly to the scourge of smallpox which makes ravages among them, and also to their fond ness for raw spirits, which leads them to degradation and misery, as the Rus sian merchants take advantage of this to cheat them when bartering for val uable skins and walrus teeth. In fact, to such an extent do these trad ers dupe them that the Samoyeds sometimes are reduced to a state of famine and have recourse to cannibal ism. This seems to account for the name Samoyed, which was given them by the Russians, and which signiAes In their language self-eating. Every year in mid-Lent these queer-looking people travel down In their reindeer sledges from Archangel to St. Peters burg and take up their abode tempo rarily on the frozen river Neva, where they build themselves circular huts oomposed of a framework of poles, ever which are stretched reindeer skins. Here they traffic for the prod nets of civilization. HELPED BY THE POPE. Plus X., Then Father Sarto, Aided Sacristan to Dig Graves. A Baltimorean wno is now in Rome writes home that many stories are be in* told of the new Pope. One which he relates in his letter refers to the time when the present pontiff was parish priest at Salzano. a village near Treviso. The story depicts Pius X. as a gravedigger, and is accredited to tho Rev. Alexander Robertson, a Protest ant missionary residing at Venice. It follows: "A son of the soil himself, the Pope In his earlier days was always willing to help his countrymen. The sucristan tails how more than once, when a body had to be brought to tho church from a distance for a funeral service and three men only oould be found to carry It, Father Sarto, then 32 years aid, would himself form the fourtn. When. In 1873, cholera broke out at Salsano, a panic Belzed the villagers, and none could be got to dig graves ar bury the dead. ‘Don Beppl,' as Father Sarto was called, then said to Us sacristan: ‘You and 1 must do It.' 80, gettlnr spades, they set to work. Their courageous conduct was not lost upon the parishioners, who soon re lieved them of their toil.—Baltimore Bun. A Child’s Definitions. JThe late Frederic R. Coudert. law yer and wit, had a great fondness for children. He collected Indefatlgably the quaint sayings of children, and one of the treasures of his library was a small manuscript volume Ailed with definitions that children had composed. This volume was called a "child’s dictionary,” and these are nm« of the definitions that Mr. Cou dert would read from It: “Dust—Mud with the Juice squeezed out of it. "Snoring—Letting off sleep. ’’Apples—The bubbles that apple trees blow. "Back biter—a mosquito. "Fan—A thing to brush the warm of with. "ice —Water that went to sleep in tho cold.” Johnnie's First School Lesson. It was Johnnie's first day In school. Ho did not know the letter A from a aaw horse, but this deficiency was more than balanced by his assurance. Tho teacher called him up alone. Tho old method of teaching reading was then in vogue. “Can you read?” said the teacher. “Yes ma'am,” replied Johnnie. "Well, now we shall see,” said the teacher. “You read over after me. Be sure to read Just what I do.” So she began slowly, running her Anger along under the words: "Did—you—ever—see—a—donkey?’’ And Johnnie in the same deliberate alng-oong voice, running his finger along the page, replied: "No—ma’am—I—never—did.” Be Brave. Bo brave. O Heart! Throw not away Thy faith In God! Who made thee from thy mother clay Yet loves the clod! What If thy way aoems hard and It ig? It leads to Light! Nor can the craft of irate or Wrong Prolong thy Night! And If thou fall, and human arm Refuse thee aid. Ihuat Him who koepr His own from harm— "Be no* afraid!” —Frank L. Stanton. Experts from Seattle. The total foreign exports from Scottle in 1903 were $9,789,084. a fall ing off of upward of $1,000,000 from tho previous year.

FMooners in Franco are permitted to Ray one visit to dying parents. W. C T. U. COLUMN. Noka W. Fkihhik, Editor. Disturbing Peace on Sunday. I Jrim- Cud**. l’a*« W7. Sec. 1371. Sec. 188. Any person who shall hereafter knowingly disturb the peace ami good order of society, by labor or aujimeiueut on tbe lirst day of tbe week, commonly called Son day, (works of necessity aud charity excepted), shall be tiued, on convic tion thereof, iu any sum uot exceed ing fifty dollars. Sec. 18U. Whoever shall be guil ty of any noise, rout or amusement ou the lirst day of the week, called Sunday, whereby tbe peace of any private family may be disturbed, or who shall by a disorderly or immor al coudnct, interrupt, or disturb tbe meeting, processions or ceremonies of any religious denomination on either a Sunday or week day, such person so Offending shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, upon convictiou thereof, shall be fined in any sum uot exceeding fifty dollars. Sec. 190. Any person who shall by meuace, profane swearing, vulgar language, ou auy disordeily or im moral conduct, iuterrupt and disturb any congregation or collection of citizens assembled together for the purpose of worshipping God, or who shall sell or attempt to sell or other wise dispose of ardent spirits or liquors, or auy article which may tend to disturb any worshipping congregation or collection of people witbiu one mile of sneb place, unless ibe person so selliug or disposing of .spirituous liquors or article shall be regularly licensed to keep tavern or gaocery, any person so offending sbnll be deemed guilty of a hign misdemeanor, aud, upon convictioo thereof shall be fined in any sum not exceeding one hundred dollars. Provided, that this section shall not be so construed as to affect any persou who may sell whisky or other ardent spirits at his own distillery, -ktore or dwelling. STATE LICENSES. Geo. Statute*.— Pago 1600, See. 2840. Sec. 18. This chapter shall ex tern! to and include all theatres, cir enses and shows where sn admission fee is charged for entrauce thereto. No person shall be allowed by virtue of anv such license to open any place of public amusement, such as a the atre, circus or show, ou the Sabbath or Lord's day; but any person who tball so offend on such day shall be fined in a sum not less than fifty or more than one hundred dollars for every such offeuse. You will notice that in section 188 : t says, “knowingly disturb the peace of society by labor and amuse ment," etc., and all ball playing, tennis playing, racing with horses or on foot, tends to degeneracy in good ordering of society, for such things blunt the conscience, and to some people it is only a few more downward steps to the prison. Some men and women are strong enough to resist any more downward steps, and it is not for them so much that such laws are made, but for the pro tection of the weaker ones and the youth of our fair state. Three-fourths of the criminals will tell you they were allowed to desecrate Cod’s holy day while very young, and one small vice leads on to one a little larger, and finally they land in the jails and prisons. Then the parents' hearts are broken; yet if they had only guided their little feet a bit nearer the divine rule they would have just cause to be proud of their offspring instead of being ashamed Section 18 is violated here by al lowing the fair grounds to be used by the ball players on the Lord’s day and admitting them without charge, but taking up admission af ter they enter. It is just the same as if charging admission at the gates, and all shareholders in the grounds are accessories to the crime. Fathers of Prowers county, you surely do not want to breed crimi nals for the future “honor and glo ry” of your dearly loved and mnch to-be-proud-of county, so why allow any forms of vice to hold sway with in its limits?

We have used it i.i tho family for over two years with the best of results. 1 have not had a doctor in tho bouse for that length of time. It is a doctor in itself and always ready to make a person well anil happy.”—JAMES HALL, Jack sonville, 111. Because this great medicine relieves stomach pains, frees tho constipated bowels and invigor ates the torpid liver and weak ened kidneys No Doctor is necessary in the home where Thedford's Black-Draught is kept. Families living m the country, miles from any physi cian, have been kept in health for years with this medicine as their only doctor. Thedford’a Black - Draught cures bilious ness, dysjHjpsia, colds, chills and fever, bad blood, headaches, diarrhoea, constipation, colic and almost every other ailment because the stomach, bowels liver and kidneys so nearly con trol the health. THEDFORD’S BU(lt- PRAUGBT Weak • Hearts Are due to Indigestion. Ninety-nine of every one hundred people who have heart troubk can remember when it was simple indiges tion. It Is a scientific fact that all cases a heart disease, not organic, are not only traceable to. but are the direct result of indl gestion. All food taken into the stomach which fails of perfect digestion ferments and ■wells the stomach, puffing it up againstth« heart. This interferes with the action oi the heart, and in the course of time that delicate but vital organ becomes diseased. Mr. D.
