UTTERLY WORN OUT.
Vitality Sapped by Years of Suffering with Kidney Trouble. Capt J. W. Hogun, former postmas ter of Indianola. now living at Austin, Texas, writes: "I was afflicted for years with pains across the loins and in the hips, and shoulders. I had headache also and neuralgia. My right eye, from pain, was of little use to me for years. The constant flow or urine kept my system depleted, causing nervous chills and night sweats. After trying seven dif ferent climates and using all kinds of medicines, I had the good fortune to hear of Doan’s Kidney Pills. This remedy has cured me. 1 am as well to day as I was twenty years ago, and my eyesight is perfect.” Sold by all dealers. 50 cents a box. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, N. Y. LIFE IN OCEAN. Professor of Cambridge (Eng.) Uni versity Tells Some New and Interesting Facts. J. Stanley Gardiner, of Cambridge university, has been exploring the Indian ocean and gives it as his opin ion that at one time there was land connection between Ceylon and Mad agascar. But it is in describing the wonders of the deep that hi? report grows most interesting. “A very con 'sidterable variety of deep-sea fish was brought up,” he says. “At least half the number we secured seemed quite new specimens, and, I believe, are not described in any textbook. Some pf these had enormous eyes, some only rudimentary eyes, the size of a pin’s head, while some had no eyes at all. “One of the most interesting dis coveries we made was that floating life is exceedingly abundant at all depths down to about 1,200 fathoms in seas 2,500 fathoms deep. By float ing life I mean animals which form the food of whales and deep-oceaa fish, and which up to the present have been believed to live on or very close to the surface. A variety of enormous squids was fished out as well as jelly fish and gigantic prawns fully six inches long. Some of these latter were blind, while others had huge eyes, but nearly all of them had phosphorescent organs, which would naturally be due to the fact that they live at a depth where al most total darkness prevails. “The blind varieties had enormous feelers, or tentacles, some of them extending to twice the length of their own bodies. Some forms, such as the -water flea, which is only about the size of a pin’s head in surface water, we discovered six or ten times that size in COO or 700 fathoms." ERA OF BIG THINGS. Skill and Talent Command Greater Sewards Than Ever in World’s History. In these days the surgeon who Is master of his science receives fees which would hav<J startled the surgeons and the public 50 years ago. A fee of $10,000 is not uncommon for an op eration which can be performed in comparatively little time. Of course, $10,000 is not the maximum fee. There are cases, it is stated, in which as much as $25,000 has been paid. When life is hanging by a thread the question of fees is im material. The average man will give all that he has, if required, to get a new lease of life through the sur geon's skill. A famous throat spe cialist was once summoned from London to treat the father of the present kaiser. He remained only a few days after making a diagnosis. He rendered no bill, but it is said the German government gave him a fee which represents half a year’s earnings of the specialist, who had a very large income from his profes sion. Even the literary man receives large fees for his work. Mr. John Morley, it has been stated, was paid $50,000 to write the "Life of Glad stone.” Certainly, great skill and talent never commanded greater re wards than they do now. It is an era of big things. There's no need to hunt for trouble; it will find you just as quick. OUTDOOR LIFE Will Not Offset the 111 Effects of Coffee When One Cannot Digest It. A farmer says: “It was not from liquor or tobacco that for ten years or more I suffered from dyspepsia and stomach trouble, they were caused by the use of coffee until I got so bad I had to give up coffee entirely and almost give up eat ing. There were times when I could eat only boiled milk and bread and when I went to the field to work I had to take some bread and butter along to give me strength. “I doctored with doctors and took almost everything I could get for my stomach in the way of medicine, but if I got any better it only lasted a lit tle w'hile until I was almost a walking skeleton, “One day I read an ad for Postum and told my wife I would try it, and as to the following facts I will make affidavit before any judge: "I quit coffee entirely and used Postum in its place. I have regained my health entirely and can eat any thing that is cooked to eat. I have Increased in weight until now I weigh more than I ever did; I have not taken any medicine for my stomach since I began using Postum. Why,' I believe Postum will almost digest an iron wedge. “My family would stick to coffee at first, but they saw the effects it had on me, and when they were feeling bad they began to use Postum, one at a time, until now we all use Postum." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. Ten days’ trial of Postum in place of coffee proves the truth, an easy and pleasant way. “There’s a reason."

Edson.) Scripture Authority: Exodus 15:27. T DID not seem to the weary, tired, thirsty people that they could go a step farther. The Journey from Ma rah had been try ing and hard, and with no sign of 6hada or water, the poeple won dered where they could camp. On every hand the hot, barren sands Btretched away before them save away In the distance there rose a Jagged line of rock, which looked even more forbidding than the level wastes, for It seemed to bar their passage and shut them In to the desolation about them. The recent blessing at Marah, where God had healed the bitter waters and satisfied their thirst, was too fresh In mind for them to murmur or ques tion the way in which the Cloud was leadingthem,butnevertheless there was that impatient fretfulness which arises from physical discomfort and the un certainty of what lies ahead. Thus it was that questionings began to rise in their hearts. Why could they not encan^p right where they were? What need of Jour neying farther when as fas as the eye could see there were no cheering signs of shade or water? Why was the Cloud leading on and- on? Had God forgotten them? Was he unmind ful of their weariness? Such were the thoughts and ques tions which troubled them more and more as the afternoon wore away and the sun neared the horizon, and eyes whloh nil dnv lnne- harl haen unmind ful of the Cloud now were lifted in eager, impatient watchfulness. When would it cease its motion? They would be grateful for the privilege of resting there in the very heart of the desert waste, they thought. But still the Cloud led on, and gave no sign of resting, and farther and farther in the rear lagged the reluct ant people, until at last Moses and Aaron and but part of the people were found in close company with the Cloud. To these there was something cheering in the presence of the Cloud, a sort of fellowship which brought contentment and confidence in the way that lay before them. But to the rest following afar off there came no such reassurance, and it was not hard for doubts and questionings to find lodg ment in their hearts, as is always the case when the soul journeys far from its Lord and reluctantly treads the pathway marked out . Away in the rear was one group of travelers that seemed especially down cast and troubled, and among whom the dissension seemed sharpest. "Would that I were with Jahziel," exclaimed one. "Yea, and who knows but that even now he may be resting under those fair palm trees we saw in the dis tance,” responded another, and at the thought he sighed wearily, for to the soul that doubts there comes the illusion that the place far away from God's side is the place most to be de sired. Since Jahziel’s departure from their midst at Marah, when he had discov ered that the waters were unfit to drink, they had not ceased to follow him in restless longing, picturing to their hearts that his lot was freer and better than theirs. And now with the weariness of the journey heavy upon them they turned their thoughts in re newed yearning back to him' and wished that they had followed their first impulses and gone with him. “We could have fared little worse had we gone with him,” broke in the first speaker again, and at least we should have been able to have paused in the journey when weary.” “But we should not forget what our God did for us at Marah,” spoke up a third, timidly, as though fearing he rmcrht nffprM In rpminriin^ hiss hrpfb ren of the blessing they had received at God’s hands. “Surely, if Jahziel found not the springs of water for which he went in search, he might bet ter have remained and drank of the healed waters of Marah.” “True, and Marah even with Its bit ter water was to be preferred to this barren way. What lies before us but the parching sands of the desert?” and as the last speaker uttered the words he raised his eyes and pointed in the direction before them. "Why,” he exclaimed, as he looked and suddenly realized that while they had lagged behind the Cloud had quite passed out of their sight beyond the line of rugged rocks in the distance. “Why, where is the Cloud? On and on it goes as though there were no weary limbs seeking to follow it Ah, well,” he added, half cheerfully, “now at least we shall be able to go leisure ly and come up with it as we may wish." Thus finding a certain comfort in the freedom of their own wilfulness, they proceeded slowly upon their way, keeping along the route followed by the Cloud by watching the straggling line of people far in their lead. Thus it was that they journeyed until as the evening shadows began to deepen and the Cloud was still invisible, the people In nervous haste quickened their lagging footsteps, hut when they bad proceeded to a point where they were able to see in the distance the glow of the Pillar of fire which rested over the camp, they again let their footsteps lag. "For why need we hurry? What will it profit us to come quickly to the camp?” they reasoned among them selves. •‘Thus they lingered willfully behind, not seeing because of the darkness that in the place where the Cloud now rested there were palm tree**, with their never failing springs of water. And whils they tarried there over took them a haggard, weary group of men, and as they staggered into their midst some one raised the cry: "It is Jahziel! It is Jahziel!” Excitedly the people gathered about the newcomers, who struggled with parched, swollen tongues to utter the one word: “Water!” And when they had given them of their scant supply and they could speak coherently, Jahziel looked around and asked, eagerly: "Where Is the Cloud? Have you, too, departed from Its leading? Ah, that 1 In my folly had not sought my own way.” ‘ i “See, there Is the Cloud,” respond ed one, encouragingly, pointing to the glowing Pillar in the distance. “Then let us get thither as quickly as possible,” Jahziel urged, appealing ly, starting forward as he spoke. “What shall it profit us if we do?” was the impatient reply of the others. “Is it not all about us desert? What shall we find there that we have not here?” "We shall find the presence of the Lord, at least And how dreadful are the solitudes of the desert apart from him,” and Jahziel shuddered as he re called the awful experiences of the past lew days. “Then didst thou not find the place for which thou didst go in search?" Jahziel shook his head, sadly. “And the Lord healed the waters at Marah, so that we drank and were re freshed," said one to him. The distress of Jahziel’* face deep ened at these words. “And I did not drink of the waters there as I passed, not knowing that the blessing of the Lord rested upon them. Ah, well, it but serves me justly. But let us hastei^ now that we may get close to the Cloud of God’s presence.” Thus urging, he eagerly pressed for ward, while the others followed. As they drew near to the camp the sound of laughter and singing burst upon their ears, as though the people were making merry. And what were those great dark objects looming up against the sky? Surely they looked like palm trees. But It could not be, for there had been no such thing visible upon the horizon before the sun had set. But jes, for there near where the light from the Cloud fell In subdued glow there could be seen the spread ing tops of the palms and beneath upon the soft sward the people re _ m_1_A._11.. l/UUCU WUlWlltOUlJ • The stragglers looked at each other with troubled, perplexed looks. What did ft mean? While they had doubt ed God and had lagged behind he had led to this beautiful spot, and while they had been endurihg the discom forts of the desert and drinking of the brackish water from their skin bottle.? behold before them had been the cool fountains and the soft ver dure of moss and grass on which to rest. "See!” exclaimed Jahziel, “said I not unto thee that you should keep near i the Cloud? Surely, the Lord knew whither to lead his people,” and as he said this he quickened his pace as much as his weakened condition would admit, while the others with him shouted for joy as the beautiful spot unfolded before their eyes. “Who would have thought that such place was to be found in this bar ren wilderness?” exclaimed one. “See what abundance of water there is,” shouted another. “Verily, the palm trees are almost more than we can count. We have not seen so many since leaving Egypt.” With glad shouts of rejoicing the weary, thirsty travelers rushed for ward and were soon seated with the others upon the soft, cool ground drinking of the refreshing waters and partaking of the fresh fruit from the palms which spread their ample branches far over their heads. And as the realization of the de lights of the place swept over them the memory of their murmurings and un belief crowded in upon them. “Ah, if we had known what God had in store for us we would not have grown so discouraged in the way,” they exclaimed. “Yea,” rejoined Moses, who chanced to be near and overheard the remark, “but will ye not understand that the Lord knows whither He would lead you, and what ye have need of? Why, then, could ye not trust him when tho way was hard? But rejoice now in this, thy present blessing, for It Is the Lord who hath given it to the* for thy refreshing and that ye may know that his care is over thee for thy good at all times." BUDDHIST INCOMPETENCY. Conditions in Island of Ceylon Mark the Opportunity of Chris tianity. The Island of Ceylon, with an area of 25,000 square miles and a popula tion of 4,000,000, has been under the rule of England about 100 years. Some years ago the government with drew from all connection with the re ligions of the people, native or for eign, leaving the support of each faith to depend upon the good will, honesty and competence of its minis ters. But of late the Buddhists have seriously complained to the authorities that their priests were both incompe tent and dishonest, and that in conse quence their temples were falling into decay. The government appointed a commissioner to investigate the mat ter, and he has made his report, find ing the facts as stated in the memo rial and advising that the authorities resume the supervision of the Budd hist organizations. This has natural ly excited no little opposition upon the part of of Christians and Moham medans, who cannot see why one re ligion should be called upon to bolster up another. It seems to the Chris tians of Ceylon that a religion which does not raise up enough honest men to administer its own offerings, had better be left to die a natural death. The government has not as yet acted upon the report of its commisslonr, but the people of Ceylon are watch ing the results narrowly. Routed the Wolf. The wolf was at the door.
