The Charm of TVearlng Gems.
On of the charms of wearing a (em is a
consciousness of its indestructibility, its par

lepths, of the glanc of imprisoned powrs
shut cp within its walls, a mnembr&ac of
tho vagus old idea of their prUncy all this
and more, to many minds, has as xcuch
fore aa th inherent beauty of th thing
itself. Who knows what spirit, what one of
the genii, what cabalistically commanded
sprit is shut up in tho fiery depths of tho
ruby, with its purpl blue cornsrs, of tho
pigeon blond tinge, in tho boaTenly color anil
brilliancy nf tho sappbiro, in the sea greau
water depths of emerald or isirylf
There is alwaysa fascination in its sparkle,
both when we wear it and see another wear
it or when w lift it from Its dark hiding
place in th casket where w keep It, as it
looks up at us with its lidless, deathless glance
of beauty. But a bit of glass, however pret
tily colored whut spirit is there in that,
made by a man, according to a formula

It is twe years sine Baruum's show was
In St. Louis, and it will be remembered that
en of its fratures was the so-callod ethnolog
ical congress, consisting ot reiiresentativoti of
eight races found In the Orient, certain
inlands of the Pacific ocean and Australia.
L'w who saw them stopped to consider tho
difficulty in obtaining the coneut of theso
people to leave their native homes. Yctone
mau Siont more than two years booking after
them. Thi. was Thomas II. Davis, who
was sent to the far ee-t by Da mum in ISS'J
to roller representatives of various weuliar
popl for his cirrus. Davis executr.1 his
ccmmiaJoa in two years, returning to Amer
lea la lrW4 with tliirty two poopla. Two of
thos whom DavU brought to lmcrica died,
and t'l others returned to their native lund.
It proved too cold for them; they lost inter
est ia the country after a few months and
longed to see their rulitivni. To thostudents
of th human race the most interKttng speci
mens in the ollection were the Todas and
Afghans, the tlrst that had evrrbwu induced
to lar their country. The former is a
Strang race, or rather remnant and hav
only been known to European within th
last twenty years.
"Thes Todas," said Mr. Davis, "live in
the Ntlghrry mountains in India, anil are
net more than 850 In numler. They are
extremely exclusive, and as they k'-p high
op in the mountains little of their history or
characteristic ia known. From what I
learned they lir ia wnaU huts, not more
than 8v feet high, snd fed upon milk, re
fusing meat or anything with life. Their
religion Is different from anything in India,
and no on seems to kn-w what or bow t
worshiped. Thy hav priests who Keep

they are polyandrous, and I na w one wnman
who was said te hav seven husband. My
interpreter explained the marriage custom.
When a girl reached a marriageable age her
father sold her. Th price is paid In buf
falo, ef which they hav large herds.
After this marriage when th wife desirse
she chew another husband, who buys into
partnership, vt Ut speak, by paying buffaloea
t th first husband, wb divide with tie
father. I had a hard time getting th
peeple te leave their mountain, only by
tempting their avarice did I succeed In get
ting two nwm to go with me. I was particu
larly anxious to get them on account of their
total difference from any race I had seel, ia
India. They were whiter than the otliers
and had a decidedly Hebrew cast of counte
nance. Their ruling passion was avarice,
and they nsed their sharp intellects to acquire
ererythiag possible. On of them carried
this to a humurou-s extent Ia coming over
on shipboard he learned several Kngllsh
words, and used them to beg articles. I was
the only en k respected, and b undertook
to supply so with cigars. When w reached
Nw York about X0O prominent men mere
invited to have a private viw of th tnbex.
Well, sir, that Tola boned every last visitor
for some article. If be did mot get what hs
pointed te he would end with:
"Tsigar"' meaning a cigar. He asked
Henry Ward Beecher. as well as the others,
and after the show was over presented roe
with fifteen cigars. After that h learned
to discriminate between good and bad cigars,
and enly asked well dreswsl vistors for them.
When he left the country he had a trunk
full of articles which be had collected. His
favorite question was 'Intwallonf meaning
What's the rrice?' His companion died in
Providence, R. I., of a lung trouble.
"Afghans are notoriously lovers of thejr
country, and I gave up the attempt to get
any of them. . I went to Cabul to hunt for a
Mongoliaa dwarf w ho was said to bo there,
and mentioned ths object of my visit to th
British minister, whose power in Afghanistan
is almost absolute. Ho-roentioned to m

such things as circus life affords. I visited
many tribes, and often failed to get repre
tsntatives, owing to their unwillingness to
leave. India is full of remnants of stiange
races that stick to their native soil un
tempted by promises, money or pictures of
th-r lands. I went into the Himalaya
mountains, but was stopped in tho confines
of Thibet I also heard of a strange race of
white men said to live north of Afghanistan

by giving him several of our colored litho-,

"No, but you don't quite understand
me, Sir James," persisted the jockey. "I
mean shal I be fit tu ride?"
"Well, I don't know," was the answer.
"Better drive, better drive!"
Archer, rather taken aback by this very

to explain. "I am afrnid, Sir .Tames, you
scarcely realize who I am"

r:R. lewis zpjq-ust,
From South Bend, Indiana.
Dr. Pagin has had twenty-five year practice in curing old complaints, and hay
treated over eighteen thousand of the worst cases of chronic diseases. His system
of medicine is no improvement on any old system it is entirely original with him.
No other physician knows the nature and properties of Dr. Pagin's remedies. In
caring diseases his medicines have a direct and positive effect only on those parts:
that are diseased. He found, twenty years ago, that some plants possessed organic
plant life and wonld impart life to tfioso organs of the body that are diseased and
give them strength and regulate their action. He also found that other plants
would weaken certain organs of the body and obstruct their action. And so, by
making trial of many different kinds of plants he found those that cured dutatc
His remedies contain only organic plant elements and are exactly adapted to the
Blood, Secretions, Brain and Nerves, and medicines that will operate upon all these
at once will cure any chronic disease of whatever nature. In his practice he uses no
medicines that are compounded in drug stores, and carries over one hundred
different kinds of medicines with him. He has restored to health many whom
other physicians have abandoned as incurable. He wishes to impress it very
strongly on the minds of all, that the most essential and important thing is to have
medicines that are adapted to all the different organs of the body, and it is just
such medicines that ho has prepared by twenty-five years hard labor and experience
and at an expense of more than twelve thousand dollars. Over three millions of
his circulars have already been distributed and any one desiring to read his large
paper, containing ono hundred and forty certificates of the most important cures,
can get them at the hotel or by applving to the city bill poster.
In at much as ho has made regular visits to the different towns on his route for
the last fifteen or twenty years and has built up a good reputation, his success de
pends upon keeping up that reputation; and so the public need have no fear that
he will use any deception or try to treat any caso he cannot cure. Notice the date
of his visit to your place and come and talk" with him he charges nothing for con
sultation and even if you do not take treatment from him you may learn some
thing about your disease.
