THE REAL CHINESE GONG.

By the way, did you ever hear a real
Chinese tgongV I don't jnean a hotel
gong, lut one, of those great moon
disks of yellow metal which have so
terrible a power of utterance.
A gentleman in Rangor, north Wales.
who had a private museum "of south
Pacific and Chinese curiosities, exhibit
ed one to me. It was hanging amid
Fiji spears beautifully barbed with
sharks' teeth, which, together with
grotesque New Zealand clubs of green
stone and Sandwich Island paddles
wrought with the baroque visages or
the shark god, were depending from
the walls; also there were Indian ele
phants In ivory, carrying balls in their
carveu bellies, each ball containing
manv other balls inside it.
The gong glimmered pale and huge
and yellow, like the moon rising over a
southern swamp. My friend tapped
its ancient face with a muffled drum
stick, and it commenced to sob like
waves upon a low beach. He tapped it
tgain. and it moaned like the wind iu
i mighty forest of pines. Again, and it
commenced to roar, and with each tap
the roar grew deeper and deeper till it
seemed like thunder rolling over an
abvss in the Cordilleras or the crash
ing of Tlmr's chariot wheels.
It was awful and astonishing as aw
fill. I assure you I did not laugh at it
at all. It impressed ine as something
torril.de and mysterious. 1 vainly
sought to understand how that thin
disk of trembling metnl could pro
duce so frightful a vibration. He iu
formed me that it was very expensive,
being chiefly made of the most precious
metals, silver and gold. From "Life

The burning of people iu effigy has
come from a foilish superstition of the
ancients, who believed that by burn
ing a likeness of a person they were
inflicting pain upon the individual him
self. Theocritus tells us that thetlreeU
sorcerers killed their enemies by nutgic
rites performed over the etligy of the
person who had offended them, and
Virgil also makes mention of this.
In the days of witchcraft and perse
cution one of the most comino;i charges
against witches was that they made
waxen images of their enemies which
they melted before a lire and thus
caused the dissolution of the originals.
The Japanese still regard the elligy
as a means of punishment of faithless
lovers, and iu France to the time of
the first revolution execution by etligy
was a legal rite. In the Netherlands
the same illogical custom prevailed,
and the different religions burned the
effigies of each other's leaders with
zeal. In England thf burning of ef
figies was also practiced, as it was
later iu America.
No doubt from the ancient custom of
burning the effigy arose the idea of
placing the wax figures of eminent men
iu Westminster abbey. Iu olden times
upon the death of a celebrity a waxen
figure representing him fully dressed
as in life was made and carried in the
rear of the funeral procession. After
the service the effigy was sot up iu the
church as a temporary monument, and
during the time it was on exhibition it
was customary to paste or piu pieces
of paper containing complimentary
epitaphs upon it. The royal figures in
Westminster abbey date back to the
fourteenth century. New York Tribune.

While Catarrh in its first stages TTflD rflNIFM PTlflN

stop there if the trouble is allowed to run on. The contracting of a
cold is generally the commencement of the unpleasant symptoms of
ringing uoisc-s in the ears, nose stopped up, mucus dropping back
iuto the throat, hawking and spitting, etc. The inner skin or mucous
membrane of the body becomes inflamed and secretes an unhealthy mat
ter which, is absorbed into the blood, and Catarrh becomes a serious and
dangerous blood disease. livery day the blood becomes more heavily loaded
with these poisonous secretions, and as the poisoned blood constantly passes
through the lungs they become diseased, and often Catarrh terminates in
Consumption. Sprays, washes, inhalations and such treatment do no real
good, because they do not reach the poison-laden blood, where the real
trouble lies. The only way to cure Catarrh
is to purify and build up theblood. S. S. S.
has been proven the remedy best suited for
this purpose. It goes down to the very
bottom of the trouble and removes every
trace of impurity from the circulation,
freshens this life stream and, as this healthy
blood roes to everv nook and corner of the
system. Catarrh is driven out and a lasting cure made. The inflamed mem
branes and tissues heal, the secretions cease, the head is cleared and the entire
system renovated and put in good condition by the use of S. S. S. Write
for free book which contains valuable information abouL Catarrh and ask
for any special medical advice voti desirewithout charge.
