HARDY JAP ENDS LONG TRIP Arrives at Dawson, Alaska, After Long Journey Through Frozen North with Legs Clad in Startling Effects. Victoria, n. C One of the most marvelous walking trips in the history of Alaska has been completed by Wada, the Japanese musher, who has arrived at Dawson. The word mush, with its suffixes, means, in this region, walk, walker or walking. Wada on ar rival was a black as a Kaffir from weeks of reflected sun from the bright snow surfaces, and his cheeks were checkered and serrated like alligator hide from alternate freezing and roast ing. His six faithful dogs, with which he left the Klondike capital, and a to boggan with a few personal belong ings, were all that he brought back. He did not even wear trousers. All that was left to adorn his nether limbs was 4. woolen undergarment; but over this he had draped with all the grace of a skirt a huge parka, which he en dured while he mushed down the mud dy yet well lined streets to his lodg ing place at Big Jo's. During his long mush Wada ran short of supplies and had to feed his socks and trousers to the dogs. A treatment of whale oil from a bottle he carried was all the sauce the ani mals desired and Wada shared their misery by mushing from Rampart House to Dawson trouserless. Wada is from a point east of Her schel island this time. He left Daw son early in the winter, traveling by dog team to Fort Yukon, there se cured the services of Harry Anthony, a Canadian musher, for trail blazer, ami with him traveled to Rampart House. At that point Anthony turned back and Wada fearlessly plunged into the wilderness and went up the Por cupine, thence over a divide to the northward and launched into the open .;y, ' & Had to Feed Socks and Trousers to the Dogs. waste of country looking out hundreds of miles toward Herschel. With no companionship but that of his dogs and using a small tent each night for refuge, Wada mushed over the sparsely wooded and willow-clad Arctic slope toward Herschel. He made the Island without mishap and then dropped in on the unsuspecting whalers one fine day. The greatest excitement prevailed when they knew there was a person among them from the outer world and what news he had v.as pumped from him with eager ness. Wada remained among the whalers six days and then continued his long mush, circling somewhat to the westward and taking in a region elong the spur of mountains there. He went to inspect the field as a prospector, but he declines to make any statement as to his discoveries, al though willing to tell of a famous Arctic slope strike, it was March 24 when Wada got started back on his long homeward trip. He brought with him letters from the Royal North western police post at Herschel and the officers and crews of the whaler. He thought n anival at Fort Yukon that he would not be able to get t' Dawson over the ice, so he mailed the letters there. Then he changed his mind and beat the letters to Dawson, with the exception of one or two un stamped letters which were not In th general bundle. "On my way back," said Wada, ' I followed somewhat inland along the arctic slope and then headed up the Old Crow river, thence down the Rapid river to the Porcupine, thence along the Rampart to Rampart House. I had plenty of of food for myself, but run ning fhy on dog feed, I gave the mala mutes my pants and socks. "Fortunately the spring days were to warm that I did not suffer keenly as I should have in winter. Several times during my trip I was storm bound and my cheeks were frozen, but on the most severe days I lay In my tent and took no chances. From Hcrfchel Inland to Rampart my actual traveling time was nine days, Ram part to Fort Yukon, seven. Fort Yu k'n to Dawson, eight; total, 24 daF. I spent four or five days lying Idle at Rampart and Foit Yukon." LIES 14 YEARS 0(1 GOT WITH HEAD COVERED STRANGE CASE OF WOMAN AT AN INDIANA INFIRMARY AP PARENTLY NOT ILL. Warsaw, Ind. Her head concealed with a sheet, and seldom uttering a sound, Mary Grim, aged 66 years, has lain for 14 years on a cot in the Kos ciusko county infirmary, near Warsaw, with nothing whatever the matter with her, so far as her physical condi tion is concerned. Time and again different county physicians have examined her in search of some defect, but without re sult. "This Is the strangest case that has ever come to my attention," said Dr. T. J. Shackleford, the present county physician, after visiting Mrs. Grim the other day. For the first time In two years she allowed her head to For the First Time In Two Years She Allowed Her Head to Be Uncovered. be uncovered, and for the first time in the same period consented to talk. She gave her maiden name, saying that she was Mary Ashbrook of near Stirling. O.; that her first husband was David Redman, whom she married in Ohio, and that her second husband was James Grim of Milford, this coun ty. When asked why she had for 14 years kept a packed suitcase on the edge of her cot, she fell back on her pillow, covered her head and refused to speak again. "That is the most the woman has talked in more than ten years," said Alva Rockhill, former su perintendent of the infirmary, and former Superintendent Sherman Mick ey, who has long been interested in the unusual case. The physicians who have had charge of the sick at the county farm are sur prised over the fact that Mrs. Grim seemingly remains perfectly well, des pite the fact that she has for many years neglected to exercise her body. During the 14 years she has reclined on the cot she has had medicine only once, and that was a headache tablet. REAL SEA SERPENT CAUGHT. Two Maine Fishermen Have Desperate Battle with Monster. Portland, Me. A sea monster weigh Ing 15,000 pounds, 45 feet in length, and in appearance much like the fa bled sea serpent, was caught by two fishermen, Albert Richardson and a companion, five miles off Orr's island, Casco bay, the other morning, after It had made a desperate effort to escape from the meshes of the big mackerel net. This finally wound Itself so tightly about it that the gills were tied fiat to its body. The big fish was drowned, not, however, until he had stove a rail off one motor boat and nearly cap Bized the other. The oldest fishermen never have seen anything like it. The fish's head was a shark's without teeth, his body serpentine, with a spiny back fin; his tail was like a whale's, four feet long and six feet broad. It took the two fishermen's motor boat three hours to tow the carcass ashore. Wives Are Traded. Norwich, X. Y. The morals of Nor wich received a severe shock the other day when it was announced in a news paper that two residents of this place had exchanged wives, and it is said that the articles of agreement, which were substituted for a divorce, were drawn by a well-known local divorce lawyer. In one of the transfers the differ ence paid Is said to have been $500 nnd a bob-tailed horse, which the wife of one of the parties received as her share of the world's goods of her spouse. One of the couples left on a honey moon trip, being taken to the station and given a parting kissing, without rice, however, by the other parties. Explosion Beside Casket. McKeesport, Pa. Miss Lida Dull was horribly burned about the face and hands by the explosion of a bot tle of smelling salts, while attending the funeral of her friend, Miss Hazel Penny, who died from the effects of carbolic acid, swallowed, apparently, with suicidal Intent. The services were held in the home of the Penny family, and the room was very close. Miss Dull held the bottle of salts in her hand, and. fear ing that she would faint, placed the mouth of the bottle to her nostrils. Suddenly there was an explosion, and the contents of the bottle, to gether with dozens of pieces of small glass, were Mown into her fare. Jier condition is serious. CAMG IF9R ELAINE When Thayer's wife died Elaine was just seven. Thayer elected to keep up his home and care for F.laine him self, Instead of passing her over to distant female relatives and ex isting in a hotel. "That poor man and with a child on his hands, too" was what Mrs. Smith next door said to the others who were acquainted with Her Pretty Niece.the Thayers. " It's so hard for a man to look pfter a child," sighed Mrs. Jones, reaching for her embroidery cotton. "We must keep an eye on Klaine!" indeed we must!" agreed tne chorus heartily. And they did. Klaine got cookies at the Smith house and cake at the Joneses', incidentally acquiring an at tack of indigestion. "Of course, you know best, Mr. Thayer," said Mrs. Smith, pausing in the door of Klaine's room on one of the times she had run In to see the invalid, "but are you sure you require her to eat the proper foods? Maybe that is the trouble!" "I'm sure 1 don't know," confessed Elaine's worried father. "1 guess she just eats what she wants and lets it go at that. I don't suppose it is the best thing for her. To tell the truth, however, I'm not quite sure that I know what is best In the food line." That was how good-natured, bustling Mrs. Smith began making out menus for the Thayers' cook. When her pret ty niece from the west came to visit her and developed amazing skill In manufacturing desserts and salads for the Smiths it was only natural that she should frequently send in portions to the lonely man and the small girl next door. "I'm not a matchmaker," she said severely in reply to a remark of her husband's, "but it's nearly a year since his wife died, and I don't know a better man, and he has plenty of money. I don't see at all why you are laughing!" It was about this time that Mrs. Jones began shaking her head over the careless manner in which Elaine braved bad weather in clothes which were too thin or otherwise wrong. "That child certainly will have pneumonia, Mr. Thayer," she said one day when she had met father and daughter on the front walk. "I thought she'd better wear her heavy coat," confessed Thayer, "but she didn't seem to want to do so. She said she felt warm enough." "Do you know why?" asked Mrs. Jones in a whisper which excluded Elaine. "Because she likes the bright buttons on this one! You must be firm, Mr. Thayer! Children are up to all sorts of whims and tricks! Ry the way, I know your sewing girl comes next month wtuld you like to have me pick out some ginghams for Elaine? 1 don't want to be officious, but" "That would be mighty good of you, Mrs. Jones," T"yer said heartily. "If you'd just buy what you think she needs I'd be more than grateful." Inasmuch as Mrs. Jones' unmarried sister, who was staying with her, was skillful with the needle, perhaps it was not unnatural that the prettiest dress Elaine had, a thin white one with lots of lace, should have been the work of Mrs. Jones' sister's own hands instead of the sewing girl's. "I don't like to say anything," said Mrs. Smith on discovering this, "but that was actually designing. A man is so Jjelplegg in such, a situation! Anyhow, Mrs. Jones' sister never would make the mother to that poor child that Abby would, if Alby is my own niece! She's so fond of children! And Elaine seems to like her so much. I must have htr make an extra custartl pie to-day and I'll send it over." "It's only for the sake of Elaine," Mrs. Jones said when her husband re proached her for laying snares for the feet of the lonely Thayer. "I really don't care whom he marries, provided it is some one who will look out for that poor, neglected child!" "Mr. Thayer," remarked Mrs. Jones, with dignity, "is a very appreciative man and realizes the spirit in which we do things for the child. A man is so helpless!" Thayer was polite to both Mrs. Smith's niece and Mrs. Jones' sister. And then just as both families be gan to flutter w ith hope he married a 20-year-old girl who lived in the next block, who couldn't boil wa ter without burn ing it, and who openly boasted that she had never vyen mended her Mrs. Jones' Sister. own stockings. Moreover, children made her nervous. Thayer said he felt It was his duty to give Elaine a mother. Over this tragedy Mrs. Jones, and Mrs. Smith buried their rivalry and became friends again. "After all we've done for that man and Elaine!" mourned Mrs. Jones. "Of course, all I feci bad about h that poor, neglected child!" VOf course," said Mrs. Smith. "Any how, he deserves all he'll get for his foolifhnss. It's just like a man!" r.hirarn Dallv News. llll If WOT EVE'S FAULT THAT TIME. Childish Realism Instilled Into Story of Garden of Eden.

TWO CURES OF ECZEMA Baby Had Severe Attack Grandfather Suffered Torments with It Owe Recovery to Cuticura.

It was formerly the belief that to become strong, athletes must eat plenty of meat. This is all out of date now, and many trainers feed athletes on the well-known food, Grape-Nuts, made of wheat and barley, and cut the meat down to a small portion once a day. "Three years ago," writes a Mich, man, "having become interested in athletics, I found I would have to sto? eating pastry and some other kinds of food. "I got some Grape-Nuts, and was soon eating the food at every meal, for I found that when I went on tho track, I felt more lively and active. "Later, I began also to drink Postum in place of coffee, and the way I gained muscle and strength on this diet was certainly great. On the day of a field meet in June I weighed 124 lbs. On the opening of the football season in Sept., I weighed 140. 1 at tribute my fine condition and good work to the discontinuation of im proper food and coffee, and the using of Grape-Nuts and Postum, my princi pal diet during training season being Grape-Nuts. "Before I used Grape-Nuts I never felt right in the morning always kind of 'out of sorts' with my stomach. But now when I rise I feci good, and after a breakfast largely of Grape-Nuts with cream, and a cup of Postum, I feel like a new man." "There's a Reason." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
