a growl nor a snarl mot his ears. He
ascended the eteps and rang the bell.
There was a little scurry of feet on
the other side of the door; then it was
opened just the least bit by a woman
with a long, axliko face and a carvod
nose of the Bergerac genus.
"I bug your pardon," offered the
man as he removed his tattered head

The door opened a bit farther. "I am

"I was greatly amused, !' said a New
Orleans citizen who bas lately made a
visit abroad, "to notice bow the term
'Yankee' widens in application as one
gets farther and farther away from the
bal -lut of the real thing.
"Iu I\ew York a Yankee is common
ly sin posed to be a native of Connecti
cut, Vermont or Massachusetts, and I
live noticed that tbc name is applied
.0 mean skinflints rather than to the
people in general. In ht. Louisa Yankee
is understood loosely to be any one from
the extreme northeast. Here in New
Orleans the term includes pretty nearly
everybody above Mason and Dixon's j
i line—in short, 'northerner' and'Yan
I kee' are mere or less synonymous.
"Now comes the really absurd part j
' of it, although quite in line with wbat |
I I have just remarked. While I was in 1
j London I found myself continually re
ferred to as a 'Yankee' by natives who
j had learned I was from New Orleans,
i 'I think you Yankees are very charm
ing people, ' said a big wholesaler who
wanted to be extra pleasant. 'I know
several from your state. ' I tried to ex
plain at first, but I soon got tired of
that. I was sure to be greeted by a stare
of amazement. 'But I thought all
Americans were Yankees, doncher
know, ' would be the usual protest.
"Later on I met a very intelligent
hotel keeper at Bern, in Switzerland,
and in tbç coarse of conversation, he re
marked that ho bad an extremely agree
able cooutryman of mine staying at bis
house the previous season. 'As you aro
both Yankees,'he said, 'you may by
chance know him.' 'YVLcre does he

INDIAN SIGNAL SERVICE.
They Have Long: Telephoned by Ihe
Inc of Druuia.
Travelers in uncivilized countries
havo ofteu wondered how some savage
tribes wore able to transmit news for
hundreds of miles with no apparent
facilities for doing so. An interesting
light is thown on this subject by Jose
Bach, who tells of the means by which
the Indians cu the Amazon communi
cate with each other at a distance. Tbe
natives Jive in groups of 100 to 200
persons in settlements half a mile or a
mile apart. In each dwelling there is a
wooden drum, which is buried for half
its height in sand mixed with frag
ments of wood, bone and mica, and lias
a triple diaphragm of leather, wood
and rubber. When this drum is strnçk
with a wooden mallet, the sound travels
far and is distinctly heard in the other
drums in the neighboring dwellings.
It is beyond doubt that the transmis
sion of the souud takes place through
tho earth, since the blows struck are
scarcely audible outside of the houses I
in which the instruments aro placed.
After a "malocca, " or dwelling, has
been "called up" by an initial blow
conversation is carried on between tbe
two drums. Mr. Bach's explanation is
that the cqpimnnication is facilitated
by the nature of the ground, the drums
doubtless resting upon one and the samo
stratum of rock, siuco transmission
through ordinary alluvial earth could
not be depended upon. This method
furnishes an ijigeniouajgxulifitation of
pem.fving distant noises, snob as tho
gallop of a horse, which consists in ap
plying the ear to the earth.— St. Louis

A Game Jockey.
Tod Sloane's gameuess will never be
questioned by those who saw him win a
race on Walter in a nose finish at the
old East St Louis track some years
ago. After tbo race Tod was hardly able
to dismount. Then it was learned that
be bad broken nn arm in the race. It
seems that he was crowded against tbe
fence in a jam aronnd one of the turns
and broke his arm. Switching the reins
to his good arm, be rode the race out
with great determination, patting up a

post by tbe narrowest possible margin.

and it's a cure that's not often possible and not always sure. There's a
better idea about coughs and cures: Why not fit the lungs to the climate
instead of fitting the climate to the lungs? It is the power to do this
in the land. It is a sure cure for colds and coughs; a specific for Asthma,
Bronchitis, Croup, Whooping Cough; it prevents Pneumonia, cures La
Grippe; and it so strengthens the lungs and heals the torn tissues that
many cases of disease marked by all the signs of Incipient Consumption
have been absolutely cured by its use. Dr. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral can

"We tried almost everything for asthma without success. At last we used youf Cherry
Pectoral and the relief was immediate." S. A. ELLIS, Keene, N. II.
" When I had almost despaired of ever finding a cure for chronic bronchitis, I derived
most excellent results from Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. I can testify as to its efficacy."
R. G. PROCTOR, M. D., Oakland City, Ind.
"There were sixteen children in my father's family and there are seven in my own. We
have never, since I can remember, been without Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and have never
had a case of cold or a cough that this remedy did not cure."
How. WM. E. MASON, Chicago, 111.
" My wife was sick in bed for ten months and was attended by six different doctors. All
of them said that she had consumption, and some of them said she could not live a month.
I bought one bottle of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. It seemed to help her, so I secured one
dozen bottles. Before these were all used, she was completely cured and to-day is
strong and well." J- W. EWING, Camden Point, Mo.
