CROCODILE'. HARD TO KILi. !
Many Bullets Necsasary te Rut End to One's Existence. SAOntlng crocodiles lu India is a little like shooting mud turtles • unter describes the sport: "We sud denly came on our first crocodile •bout a mile from camp, asleep on the bank, with its mouth open, not more than twenty yards from us It Itarted to get away, tint I fired wr ibots as quickly as I could get them pfT. the first into its open moutn and the second Into its neck as it urned its head That stopped It effectually and It never got into the water. Thr next day we found another crocodile and my friend got It Just above the • boulder. That was not enough tc • top it, but we both fired as It was getting into the water and one bullet hit It In front of the quarters. They sometimes eome up again when wounded, so we waited about twenty minutes, and then looking about I saw It lying on its back at the hot tom of the stream. It looked deao enough, so we got hold of the end ol the tall and pulled It ashore, gave it two more shots, one In the neck and the other In Ibe middle ol the back, and it then still had vitall ty enough to bite a paddle In two though the legs were paralyzed and It could not move." A We Six Doctors Failed. South Bend, Ind., Sept. 26th (Spe cial)—After suffering from Kidney Disease for three years; after taking treatment from six different doctors without getting relief, Mr. J. O. Dau demau of this place found not only relief but a speedy and complete cure In Dodd's Kidney Pills. Speaking of his cure Mr. Laudeman says: "Yes, I suffered from Kidney Trou ble for three years and tried six doc tors to no good. Then I took Just two boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills and they not only cured my kidneys, but gave me better health in general. Of course I recommended Dodd's Kidney Pills to others and I know a number now who are using them with good re sults." Mr. Laudeman's case Is not an ex ception. Thousands give similar ex periences. For there never yet was a case of Kidney Trouble from Back acne to Bright's Disease that Dodd'g Kidney Pills could not cure. They are the only remedy that ever cured Bright's Disease. RITUAL OF THE ESKIMO. Elaborate Ceremonies Held at the Re turn of the Sun. It might be supposed that the Esal bo were too much occupied in fortify ing themselves against hunger and cold to indulge in religious rites and ceremonies. An explorer In Arctic Alaska, however, reports that the na tives have quite an elaborate ritual, In the course of which huge and gro tesque masks are used. Their princi pal festival Is held at Easter, when they celebrate the return of the sun. K8kimo, dressed In appropriate cos tumes and wearing masks, personate the sun, the moon and various Arctic animals, Aid there is much chanting and dancing. Some of the masks are so heavy that they have to be suspend ed from the roof of the house in whlck the ceremonies are held, the actors simply standing behind them and wag ging them from side to side. All the masks are carved not only with a rugged resemblance of the object or animal represented, but with a hideous human face designed to represent Its ghost. This is due to the Eskimo be lief that every animal and thing has a spirit of human form and features. In some cases the mask is made to open by means of hinged doors, showing an other mask formed like a human face beneath. f S' Gout and Its Symptoms.

That is only possible by use of skil fully selected food that exactly fits the requirements of the body. Poor fuel makes a poor fire and a poor fire is not a good steam pro ducer. "From not knowing how to select the right food to fit my needs, I suf fered grievously for a long time from stomach troubles," writes a lady from a litt!« town in Missouri. "It seemed as if I would never be able to find out the sort of food that was best for me. Hardly anything that I could eat would stay on my stomach. Every attempt gave me beart-burn and filled my stomach with gas. I got thinner and thinner until ! literally became a living skeleton and in time was compelled to keep to my bed. "A few months ago I w-as persuaded to try Grape-Nuts food, and it had such good effect from the very begin ning that I have kept up its use ever since.

I How Jo Fixed the Pump and Charged $5 for It. The question of remuneration for labor, always a mooted one, it cepfible of being viewed from various standpoints. In a small community in Texas where water is hard to find, Mr. Hen derson, the owner of a well, fitted out with a patent pump, was a person of consequence. It was. also, matter ol public concern when the pump got out of gear anû refused to perform Its proper functions. All the men In the locality spent the day in Henderson's back yard, con sulting and "tinkering," jointly and severally, at the pump; but all to no avail. Finally along came a young fellow, Jo Brady by name, from a neighbor ing ranch. He looked the pump over, rapped it on the head with a hammer, thought a couple of minutes, and in side of two minutes more had it in working order again, was general. Just name your price, Jo, my boy," said the owner of the pump heartily. Jo considered a bit and then said that he guessed five dollars would be about right. There was a change at this, and re marks of a different nativ?» from ap probation were freely indulged in "Now, see here, Jo," said the ag grieved Henderson, "I thought you was a square kind of a chap! That ain't any white man's charge. Why, you don't do nothin' at all—any one of us could a done what you don and you wa'n't more'n five minutes doin' it, neither. Fifty cents 'ud be a big price for that work you dope 1 " Jo considered again. "All right," he said, "I'll make another charge, bill," he added, turning on bis heel. When the bill came it read thus: For working on one pump five minutes .

Here after the princes, dukes and ministers of the eight banners must all earnest ly practice military art and attain the utmost proficiency, which will leave no time for the observance of mere forms, and we order all officials In fu ture not to carry the bow and arrow when they attend state ceremonies, nor are imperial bodyguards or the palace guards to use them, but the best weapons must be provided for them.
