PATRIOTIC LITTLE HOOSIER.
Her Hair Ribbons Furnished Colors
for Manila's First Pole
Shortly after Manila had been taken
by Admiral Dewey's fleet there was a
pretty little scene in that city that was
demonstrative of American patriotism,
and a little Hoosier girl was the
cause of it all, says the Indianapolis
News. The girl is Miss Mary Louis
Weiser, daughter of Councilman Louis
J. Weiser, of Columbus, and, although
the story is an old one, it has never
teen made public before. Miss Weis
er enjoys the distinction of having fur
nished the colors for the first "pole
raising" in Manila.
When Manila was taken the Weiser
family was living in Chicago, but they
had come back to Columbus on a
visit, and when about to return to Chi
cago, they were introduced to Col. Jew
ett, of New Albany, who was then on
his way to the Philippines to act as
judge advocate. He had just beer
appointed by President McKinley, and
was passing through the city on his
way to begin his work. While en
route to Chicago a strong attachment
sprang up between Col. Jewett and
Miss Weiser, who was then only six
At the time Manila was taken the
schoolgirls of Chicago were wearing
the national colors in their hair, in
Etead of the regulation, ribbons, and
little Miss Weiser was as patriotic as
any of them. Before the party sep
arated at Chicago the child took the
colors from her hair and presented
them to Col. Jewett, requesting him to
take them to Manila. He thanked the
girl for the bit of colors, and placed
them in his pocket.
On landing in Manila Col. Jewett
at oncde sought out Admiral Dewey
and, in the course of a long conversa
tion after greetings had been ex
changed, the subject of American pa
triotism was broached by the admiral.
This reminded Col. Jewett of what had
happened in America, and he remarked
that he had something which carrie
him back to a little girl who was de
cidedly patriotic. Drawing the colors
from his breast pocket, he said: "This
was presented to me by a little Hoosier
maiden, who requested me to bring it
all the way to Manila."
Officers and common seamen alike
crowded around to see the colors which
had been'Sent them by a little Hoosier
girl from the states. Admiral Dewey
"Let us hoist the colors!"
No sooner was the suggestion made
than a bamboo pole was obtained, to
which the colors were attached, and
the pole raised. The colors were sa
luted by all present, and a loud cheer
rang out for the little girl who had
furnished from her hair the red, white
and blue for the first pole-raising in

Bishop Hanlon, of Uganda, in de
scribing some of his experiences in
Central Africa, said recently that
though many of the medicine men had
been converted, they could not be in

as to divulge their undouoted valuable
remedies for native disease. Some of
the converted medicine women were
not so reticent, but their revelations
were generally worthless.

SULU'S SPOTLESS SULTAN.
Family Descent end Present F i wel
of the Malay Monarch of
Sultan Hadji Mahommad Jamalul Kii
am claims descent from that valiant
Dyak Borneo chief Paguian Tindig.
who. early in the sixteenth century,
conquered the Sulu archipelago. found
ed the.sultanate and opened the way for
the introduction therein of the religion
of the great prophet.
This sultanate. politically regarded as
an integral part of the Philippines,
came into the possession, or control. o
America as a result of the Spanish
American war of 1898. Under the old
regime this group of about 140 islands
and islets constituted a vassal domain
in the suzerainty of the king of Spain.
From the end of the sixteenth century
up to the present day Sulu. or Jolo. as the
Spaniards termed it, and the adjacent
large Mohammedan island of Mindanao,
have been the theater of intermittent
strife and bloody warfare. Although
personally convinced of the superiority
of American strength, the sultan has no
power, and perhaps little inclination, to
coerce his nominally subordinate chiefs
into submission to the great republic.
When I was staying at the royal resi
dence of Maybun (Sulu island), as the
sultan's guest, in 1881, says a writer in
St. James' Gazette, young Mohammad
Jamalul Kiram was a youth of about
15 summers. On his father's de~h the
Spaniards cited him to Manila to receive
investiture from the governor general,
in the name of the king of Spain.
But he refused to go there, for tradi
tion had taught him how, in 175., his il
lustrious predecessor, Sultan Mahamad
Alimudin, had been inveigled to the
Spaniards' capital, where he was kept a
prisoner until the British released him
The Spaniards thereupon ignored his
right of Accession, and appointed in his
stead, his uncle, Harun Narrasid. But
the Christian-hating Moslems point
blank refused to accept the infidels' nom
inee, and a nationalist party waged war
so persistently against him that he was
obliged to make peace with his nephew,
who complacently appointed "Uncle
Harun" to his vassal sultanate of Pal
In the meantime; Mohammad Jamalul
Kiram made his pilgrimage to Mecca,
and thus secured the title of hadji, or
knight, to which every pilgrim to that
holy shrine is entitled.
When I called upon his highness last
year he was residing in Tulay, an ex
muralsuburb of Jolo town.in a roughly
built wooden house, which had the ap
pearance of an immense packing case,
with so many openings in it for door
ways and windows.
I was met at the entrance by several
of his armed liegemen, who escorted me
through the vestibule,practically a rub
bish store, to the staircase. I wondered,
for the moment, where the stairs led to.
but suddenly the lid at the top
was raised, and, in a minute, I
found myself m the royal pres
ence. His highness was seated on
a sofa near the window opening, and
after i Aad made a low bow, a smile and
a movement of his hands signified an in
timation to approach.
Without rising, he graciously shook
hands with me, and pointed to a chair
opposite. So I seated myself and started
the conversation by telling him how,
years ago, when he was a little boy, I
had been the guest of his father at May
This reminiscence evidently delighted
him; if the ice were not broken before, it
was now. A smile of delight beamed on
the sultan's face; a word from his lips
brought his retainers, attired in pic
turesque, bright-colored costumes, and
armed with "barong," £hort swords and
daggers, into a semicircle around the
back of my chifr.
The sultan is a short, thick-set man,
with small eyes, a slight, black mus
tache, sallow complexion, and his hair
_cropped as close as scissors would clip.
Clothed in a sarong .trllianthue from
his loins downwards, around his shoul
ders was thrown a jabul, or strip of cot
ton stuff, sewn together at the ends.
And as he waxed warm on the subject of
his grievances, at every gesture the jabul
would slide down to his waist, exposing
his dusky skin, so that perhaps I really
saiw more of his highness than is the
privilege of most Europeans.
On taking leave of my royal host he
presented me with his handsnme dress
sword and betelnut cutter as souvenirs
to the "friend of his honored father."
The Tulay audience chamber occupies
half the upper floor, and its description
may be briefly summed up in bare
boards, nondescript bundles, four or
five pieces of dilapidated furniture,
lirt and lumber.
But the Maybun palace, on the op
posite coast of the island, is quite a
different place. Built bungalow fash
ion, and covered with an iron roof,
it has several spacious apartments,
which would be all-sufficient for the
home of a prosperous Europeana
Here, tar away from the inquisitive
gaze of the Christian infidel, the sul
tn, in company with his seven wives,
can alternately ponder on the glories
of the past in the sanguinary struggles
against the Spaniards, and lament his
fast-diminishing power under the lev
eling process of American conquest.
In a material sense he is wanting
nothing; he receives an annua' income
from the British North Borneo com
pany in lieu of his sovereign rights
in Brunel; he has strings of lovely
pearls galore; and in the natives' esti
mation he is wealthy.
But he is the Majasari, the stain
less, the spo*aess, who can do nC
wrongo--the lord of life and property
on whose mercy depends all that the
world cam give within his domain, in
cluding the ha~ppi5esq 4 u ittence

Young Man Was There with the
Oily Approval to a Nauseat
A story told of the late Jan es F. Joy
is at least characteristi,. He was never
weak in his likes or dislikes, and among
the things that he dearly liked were
honesty and naturalness. The attempt to
appear what one were not was to antag
onize him, says the Cincinnati Commer
Mr. Joy had many positions at his dis
posal, and an applicant for one of them
came with gilt-edged credentials. The
ycung man presenting them was of good
appearance, finely educated, and the son
ot one whom the financier had respected
for years. Wise as to his tongue the youth
would have a walkover.
The older man purposely engaged the'
younger in conversation. The latter re
plied in smooth sentences, deliiered in
dulcet tones. Mr. Joy would make a
statement carrying an opinion, and there
would be unctuous apprcial from his
caller. This got on to the nerves of
the sturdy old gentleman. Hie advanced
an opinion diametrically opposed to the
one delivered but a few sentences be
fore. The youth was right there with
his oily approval. The railroad magnate
wondered how far it would go, and put

A typical illustration of the way Dodd's
Kidney Pills Cure Rheumatism is well
told by Catherine Devine, who is very
well known here. She says:
"For over four years I was greatly
troubled with Rheumatism. It used to
take me worst in my legs and feet. At
times I would be so bad I could not put
my feet to the ground. As I am over
seventy-three years of age I began to
think I was too old to get cured and
should have to bear my Rhuematism the
best way I could. But I heard about

There is one remedy that will cure
rheumatism in any of its forms and so
thoroughly eradicate the disease from

statement is found in the experience of
Mr. T. S. Wagar, of No. 72 Academy

"The pain was in my joints and my
sufferings for over two years was beyond
description. There was an intense pain

the floor at night. When I began taking
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the improve
ment was gradual, but by the time I had
taken four boxes I was entirely cured
and I have not had the slightest touch
of rheumatism since that time."
Mr.Wagar's wife is also enthusiastic
in her endorsement of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. She says: "I have tried the
pills myself for stomach trouble and
have experienced great relief from their
use. My daughter, Mrs. Atwood, of
Gill street, Watertown, has used them
for female weakness and was much ben
efited by them. I regard Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People as an ex
tremely valuable family medicine."
