One o! the moit sensational development cf the Equitable life situation camo to light last nlabt in the discovery that a man who had been dead tbirtn months and three others who had long severed their connection with -the society wen still on the pay rl'. The discovery was mads through a study of the report of th suprlr teadent of iusoranre, Mr. llendrirk Included in Mr. UendrU kVn report is the salary list for the year U0." On this list appears the name of K W. Lambert, chief medical director, and the salary of the office is eel down at $ 2-"pO0O a year. Inquiry at the EquitaUe ottijte disclosed the fact that Mr. Lambert had been dead for thirteen months. Further down the list appears the name of Georre II.

James Watson In Country Lift) la America . In all mr own experience with dogs I have never seen a "mad dog," but have never known a man and by that I mean a man who has had ex perlence in keeping dogs who has seen one. If, then, rabies is so ex ceedinirlv scarce hydrophobia be comes really an impossibility and the fear ot It should be dismissed without a thought. A person may get bitten, but In the language of the New l ork tough, "Forget it." If it is a bad bite It may twitch later on and you may be gin worrying, so it is a good plan to fret rid of the twitching or throbbing in order to forget. I have been bitten so often that I think no more of it than a mosquito bite, and this is what I do: It it is on the bund I put it under the faucet and wash thoroughly .with the object of cleaning the wound and preventing inflammation from auy dirt or foreign substance. While do ing this someone is getting the bi carbonate of soda and some clean rags or lint. With water a cream paste of the soda is made to plaster the wound well, thpn putting some on a rag it is applied to the wound and bound up If in the course of an hour or more the application seems to be drving a little water Is poured on the bandnge to soak through to the soda or the hand dipped in water.

Guthrie, Ok., June 25 "The first oysters ever seen by the Osage In dians were a severe test of Osage dignity and the 0age esophagus," said John Hale, a banker of Chandler, Ok., who was for mvty years in the employ ot the government at the Oxtge Indian agency at Fawhoeka, where he learned to speak the Osage language as fluently as English. "The first oysters were brought to Fawhuftka, then In the heart ot the wilJeruess, more than twenty years ago. It was winter, the only season that permitted their long shipment by witgou from the railroad. The ap-iicy employees, huugry for the nood things cf civilization, were jubilant over their arrival, and pre oared tor an oyster feast. At that t uieSdiiey Chief, one of the wisest, bravest aud most honorable Indians that ever lived, was chief of the (sj;;e tribe.

"The Osages had no name tor oyster, and as its nearest equivalent we told him that the new food was 'h .h', or fish. A halt dozen raw, the Mtrgeet that could be found, were set More Saury ChM, who cautiously abstained until he saw how we ate them. Then he Impaled a big one on his fork and tried to swallow the new tangled 'hob.. The oyster made quick progress for a short distance, and then seemed determined to re turn and start anew. Saucy Chief clasped both hands over his mouth, while his eyes rolled in dismay and astonishment. To betray surprise or emotion was contrary to his In dian nature, and his sense ot polity ness would not permit him to reject food offered him by a host. Unable longer to maintain his composure, Saucy Chief arose and stalked majestically into the street, his hands pressed firmly over his mouth. That was the first and last time Saucy Chief ever tried to eat an oyBter." Fight Will Be Bitter.
