like a relaxed dead man. The!

but the drugged crazed creature
beneath it suddenly rollen over
and buried his teeth in the horse's

tho quick, savage lunge of an infurated
dog. The horse bolted,
and to keep him from going haecllong
into tho crowd, the rider

But he could not master the

wild; the iron bit clamped into

Neverless, tho horso did not

He fought down the narrow
street and out through the native
quarter of tho city, but the
rider controlled him, and but for
an accident, would have got him
in hand. A water-skin had broken
in the street, and when the
plunging horso struck the wet
earth he foil.
That thiug ail happened In a
flash, and the man was thrown
out of tho saddlo. As he arose a
native servant, in livery handed
him his helmet which bad rolled
into a neighboring doorway. A

Appeal ^ Made for Contrlbu- i
tions to Add to Cheer of !
Hospital Patients- \
By J. A. Ij,
' N 'l
Next Tuesday has been set by
the Woman's Hospital Association ,
as the day for donations of jellies \
and jams for the patients In Cook 'J
Hospital. It is an annual custom J
of the Woman's Hospital Asao-1,
elation to make this public ap-j
peal for home made preserves, <
jellies, and jams for the trays of j
the sick who are confined by their
illness to the rooms and wards of
the hospital. r
Last year ,the appeal was met!
with exceptional generosity, and i
many sick patients, who numbers <
hundreds of persons during the I
year, had reason to be grateful to t
the women of Fairmont and the M
surrounding towns for their kind i
donations, as - well as to the com- 1
mittees in charge who gave their 1
time to tho assembling and col- 1
looting of the splendid variety of t
stuff contributed. j<
This year a receiving station ,i
| will be locate^ in each ward in ]
the city and in Belleview, Mon- f

srith the single contribution, but
If a receiving station Is near,
these gifts of one or two Jars of
lelly or jam will be taken there
gladly and in this way every wornin
can make some contribution.
Dno glass of jelly, or one jar of
preserves or jam, does not look
like a very large gift, but it is
pointed out 'that such contribution
will give several patients a
delightful and tempting addition
to a tray from which their un:ertain
appetite might otherwise

tho gift it wilt be gladly and
thankfully received aud sent on
its way to Cook Hospital.
Every jar of atuff contributed

thoughtful women for the nurses'
table. These jars were marked by
thoso who gave thorn especially
