I bad ben in my new lodginjjs for a week. A week that had dragged it self along in an endless series of days, everyone bringing to nie dreams and the hopes of an entire lifetime. Over the glass door of my neatlittleapart ment the white door plate with which it is customary to announce the office of a practicing physician had shown for a week. For the same length of time my reception and consultation room had awaited with its dark cur tains and straight-backed chairs for the patients who were to come to seek the advice and help of Dr. Max Ecbardt. Aftfr all, I had no cause to w onder that my room remained emp ty in the first days, for the neighbor hood had first to get accustomed to my name and to the fact that they could find good medical advice in the near vicinity. All this I said to my self comfortingly at that time. When by good fortune I should be able to heal only one patient then the situa tion would change. My reputation would increase and soon the rush of people to my consultation room would proclaim my success. I should soon go out with my pretty little car riage, with a dark brown horse driv en by a respectful coachman; then, indeed, then-- At last a thought which completely overpowered me came into my mind. AN INDIAN LETTER. . Methods of Communication Among the Indians. The Picturesque of Eloquence. Thoughts Expressed in Silence. How Indian ills tory is Preserved. Letter from an In dian about Klckapoo Indian Sagwa. The sign language of the Indians is a wonderful thing. Two Indians different in their speech as a German and a Spaniard will readily communicate with each other. It is the picturesque of eloquence to watch nn Indian addressing a council and without speaking n word, milking his inclining clear to all present by signs. Histories and all written communications are made by pictures. The family history of a chief will be painted on a tepee. The following is a specimen of this method of communiention. The "letter" was written by KF.F.-F.mAIt-E, "The one who knows secrets," a Kick, apoo Indian Medicine -Mmi. Specimes op Indiax Letter Writing. The above letter translates as follows: "The Indians offer to their white brother flower; leares, roots anil burls, made by the sun, the stars, and the rain (nature.) If tin tchite brother is sick, this trill make him stronger than the bear tcho will fall before him." "Saowa" is a medicine word meaning good or best, ami signifies "best medicine." Here are the sincere statements of a no ble son of a gram I race. Every word is true. Catliii, the highest authority on the In. diiun and who lived among thein for years, says "the word of mi Indian can al ways be relied upon," and be is right. Hero is proof of the genuine value of Kickapoo indinn Sagwa. Hre is a letter from a far different source. The following is from the Professor of Physiologic.il chemistry at Yule College, and this scientist says : "After a chemical analysis of Indian Sagwa, I find it to Vt an Extract of Hoots, Barks and Herbs of Valuable Ilemriiul Action with ho Mineral or other lJtleteriout Admix tures." . Heed the teachings of these letters. Take Nature's Ujmedy in season. If your blood is impure and your skin is marked by pimples, blotches and boils; if yon have dull pains in your back and side; if ycur appetite is poor; if you do not get sound, refreshing sleep, so necessary to your health and strength, you are in Dan ger. These, and other symptoms are the warnings of nature. Arouse yourself, and drive off the enemy Arm yourself with Kickapoo Indian Sag wa build up your system by its use anj . all d.tnger is averted. Kickapoo Indian Sagwa nnd other Kick, apoo Indian medicines contain only the products of the field and forest, nature's own vegetable growth of roots, barks and herb-, and of neee.-sity are free from all mineral poisons whatever, because the Indians have no knowledge of them, de pending wholly upon nature's laboratory for their resources, and upon their skill, born of centuries of experience. 4 .

I was again in spirit with my cousin Marie who certainly would make the prntti 'st of doctor's wives that one could imagine. I loved my fair cous in. As a boy, I showed her every lit tle chivalrous service which in the house or parden is demanded of the stronger comrade. As a junior in school I had inscribed my first poem to her; and as a senior I had badly in jured my voice, which was just then returning to baritone, by singing in cessautly of the "flaxen-haired girl." When I returned home after passing my first examination, the first thing of all that the student noticed wan that "the flaxen-haired girl" had come to love him as completely as he loved her. Neither said anything on the subject. My university period passed by. All the time I had work ed earnestly, and whenever I had un dergone the tedious struggle of ex aminations victoriously Marie's eyes seemed to express her lively interest in the successful accomplishment of all my endeavors. And when my cousin Marie, greeted my return said softly, " Her Doctor Echardt," then I saw a bright blush come over her face as she turned toward the window seat. Now and then, during the next few days, I had an opportunity to speak to Marie of all the castles in Spain which a young physician could build in his empty dwelling; but I dared not inform her of my dream in regard to the future doctor's wife. There lay in the blue eyes of my dearest an expression which kept back my words even when they almost found utter ance. I had no doubt that Marie would eventually be my wife, but it seemed as if lack of confidence of m ability as a physician lay in her glance. That increased my pride and induced me to remain silent and wait the time when the report of my first professional achievement would pro claim my ability to Marie. With my thoughts absorbed in all these things, I sat on the afternoon of a dreary November day in my con sultation room, and at first failed to notice a faint ring at my bell. Then I arose to open the door myself, as I had sent my errand boy to market. I confess that, during the few steps that were necessary to bring me to the door a flood of very strange thoughts came over me. A caller was seeking my help. Very likely it was a patient of high birth and I should certainly receive a rich reward and fame 1 was already married to my dear Marie. I opened the door. In thehalf dark of the late Autumn day stood a poor ly clad woman before me. Out of her haggard and charcoal blackened face looked a pair of great dark eyes be seechingly at me. "Doctor," said the woman in a trembling voice, "doctor be merciful, oh, please. My little Marie is sick." The name atoned for the woman's unpromising appearance, which coin cided badly with my latest dreams. " Who are you? Who sent you to me? " 1 disked. "No one," the woman answered quickly and in a low- voice. "Oh, doctor, do come ! I havp been carry ing coal all day from the wagon into a house near by. I live over there in the court yard. My child has been sick since yesterday,- I. found her so much worse that I came to you at once." I hesitated somewhat, the disen chantment was so great. The woman wiped her face with her blackened hand. It was a face which already showed many furrows caused by sorrow and trials. "I should have gone for the charity physician," she said wearily, "but your servant, doctor, is a child of the shoemaker in our courtyard, and he has told everyone that you are such a good man. Oh, do help my little girl." I decided to go with the woman, After all, one is a jnan, and most of all he is a man who has learned to do his duty. So I went with her, after I had gathered together the necessary instruments with a pomposity which astonished and half-shamed even my self. Across the street we took our course into a great court-yard lying behind a row of houses. Then she led me up five flights of stairs, each one darker and steeper than the first, and finally through a badly fitted door to a little room with slanting ceiling and very little windows. On a miserable but neatly arranged bed lay a child of perhaps fourteen months. Her limbs were fever heat ed and her eyes were wandering and impressive. The woman bent down to the bed side. "She does not know me! She does not know me!" she moaned. The child coughed. It was a croup ous cough of the worst sort. I tore a leaf from my book and wrote my first prescription as a practicing physician. "To the nearest apothecary," I said. The woman looked at me em barrassed. "Can I take it to the oneonKonig etrasse?" she said. "No, Nol" I cried. "It requires the greatest haste., Why will you not go to the apothecary in this street?" The woman reddened preceptably, in spite of the charcoal dust. Final ly she stammered: "The apothe cary in the Konigstrasse knows me; I carry coal there, and he will perhaps I have no money.". A heavy tear dropped on the paper in her hand. These people, who can pay no drug gist and no physician," said I angri ly but inuudibl," I took out some money and said aloud : "There take that and go quickly." The woman kissed the hand of her child and then, before I could stop her, she kissed mine also and hasten ed away. 1 looked around the room for a seat. A rickety chair, a red chest, an old table, some miserable dishes on a poor cold oven, which oc cupied the place of a hearth, compris ed all the furniture. Hanging on a wall in a coiner was a threadbare wollen garment and a child's cloak and a little hat with a ribbon aiound it in a finger's breadth wide; on a bracket hanging next the window was a withered myrtle tree, a red ger anium and a hymn book, with dis gusting yellow edges. That was all that the room held. I Bat down beside the little girl. She was apparently well cared for. Her limbs were round and pretty, her golden hair was soft and curly. She was unconscious. Her blue eyes stared straight before her as if she was looking into the far unknown distant. The room was cold. I went to the oven and found only some splinters of wood. There were so few thnt I did not at tempt to build a fire. I sat down and waited for the woman and the medi cine. Ever nnd anon my glance would wander around the miserable room. Here was a poor, hard-working woman who carried charcoal on the street while her child lay in want and sickness, yet she loved the child tenderly. Suddenly the thought shot through me that I had been called too late. I had not resolution enough to try any doubtful energetic effort to save her, to snatch her from thearmsof death. My heart was heavy. I sprang to the door and listened for the foot stept ot the mother. She came final ly; my reproachful eye met her down cast one. "There were so many peo ple in the store. A woman like my self does not dare to press forward." An hour of torment went by. The medicine availed nothing Little Marie couhl not swallow it. An oper ation on the throat was of no use. The child died died before my eyes on the bosom of the mother, bowed down by her grief. She finally looked up in a terrified manner; a tear had fallen on her hand, but she had not wept. "You are weeping, doctor," she said softly. "Ah, don't weep, sir; you will stand before many a sick bed as you have here, where the Lord will not help you." She looked fixedly at the little one. "I have loved her very dearly. 1 have done for her what I could in my pov erty. Whenever I came home from my work I found her so pretty, so charming. For hours she would lie in bed or on the floor and play with almost nothing and she laughed for joy when I came home. God has taken her from me. He loves her more than T do, but, oh, I shall be so lonesome." 1 pressed the woman's hand, but could not speak. I dropped some money on the table and silently went out. At home I laid my instrument case away and 6at down dishearten ed. I could eat no supper. I went to bed and tried to get sleep. But the picture of the frloomy attic of the dead child of the submissive and patient woman, kept me less from sleep than the tormenting self-reproach with which I thought over everything that I had done. My first patieut! I groaned, and then the words of the poor woman came to me again : "Don't weep doctor, you will stand before many a sick bed as you have stood here where the Lord will not help." I had been summoned too late; I had not been able to save the child. "You will stand before many a sick bed as you have stood here." I hid my face in the pillow. It was a ter rible night; the torturing thoughts which made me so restless were very different from the pleasant dreams which had encouraged me in both my waking nnd sleeping hours. Early on the following morning an old college friend came who had sought me on liis way through the city. Ue dragged me over the crowd ed streets, into the museums, into nil sorts of restaurants. He complained of my taciturnity. 1 feigned a head ache and escaped the necessity of having to see a sensational play at the Court theatre. Tired and worn out I went at last alone to my room. On my way there I passed the window of a brightly lighted flower shop. I walked in and bought a costly white camelia and some sweet smelling vio lets. I went up the five flights to the room of the poor woman. I found the door unlocked. It was faintly lighted and a little coffin stood in the middle of the room. In it lay the child, dressed in a white gown. The ribbon on the hat on the wall had been made into two little bows, the myrtle wreath lay on the blonde hair and the geranium was laid upon her breast. On the table stood a lamp, and the open song book lay near it. I laid the beautiful white flowers in the little motionless hand and put the bouquet of violets on the quiet breast; then I looked at the open book. The page was turned at an old song which I had learned at school and had soon forgotten. I laid the book away sighing. The words which I had read, the awful stillness, the peacefully resting child, oppressed my heart; I went home, after asking in the house for the hour of the interment. I went to bed early. I was very tired and all disquiet left me. And as if called by a strange power, the words of an ardent prayer flowed over my lips; the prayer that God might bless me in my difficult posi tion, and might change my conceited assurance in my own skill into a sub missive trust in His protection, what ever my little knowledge and my earnest wishes would not avail ; that I, might hope for Gou's comfort at all sick beds, where I must, as on yes terday, stand helpless. Early in the morning I awaited the little coffin in the courtyard. A man bore it; the mother, in her poor black clothing, followed. She pressed my hand and gave me a thankful look when she saw that I joined the pro cession. The way was not long; the streets were almost empty; the air was very mild for November. As the iron gate of the burial ground opened the weeping woman dropped her head upon her breast. Beside the open grave stood a clergyman. "I have made it my duty, as long as my strength lasts, to give a last blessing to allthedeadof my parish," said he, softy, as my astonished look met his. Dear, kind priest, you did not sus pect how the plain homely words of blessing which you spoke over the tittle coffin gave comfort to the poor woman and to myself as well. "In God's hand everlasting rest is found." "1 know it. I know it," sobbed the woman; and she bent her pnle face over the hand of the young priest. On the evening of the same day I went to my relatives. All the older members of the family were absent. Only cousin Marie was at home to receive me. We sat by the window and let the moonlight shine upon us, and then I told her how I had visited my first patient and what I learned thereby of value tomycalling. Marie said nothing during my confession, but suddenly I felt myself embraced by her arme. She looked at me with moist eyes. " Look, Max ! " shesaid. "Now you know well in what respect you failed in your profession. Thank God that you have gained this knowledge through your first patient. Now I think that you will become an able physician, who will always do good, even when his own skill will not avail." I kissed my cousin. "And now what do you mean ?" I said. "Have you the courage to be 3 me the wife of such n doctor? " She smiled in the midht of her tears and we were lietrothed nt last. Fortune willed it thnt on the next day 1 should again lecnlled to attend a child who was very sick with croup. I was also fortunate enough to lie able to save it. Much grace has God since then allowed to be bestowed through my hands to the Bick and to the poverty stricken. My profession became dearer and dearer tome. The mother of the child who had been my first patient soon moved into my house to attend the management of the household until my dearest one became my wife. She then stayed with us as cook until, later, she lie came nurse to our first-born daugh ter, Marie. She wept over the child for joy, and in thankful remembrance of the little blonde girl who had shown me' what it is to be a physician. Surged Ahead. An article contributed tothe"Engi neering Magnzine" by It. II. Edmunds of Baltimore, on the conditions of re cent progress in the United States, shows that we have'had a decade of marvelous growth. Mr. Edmunds claims that the United States is now the leading manufacturingcountry in the world. He says : We have far outstripped all other nations in the magnitude of our in dustrial operations. It is almost in comprehensible that in ten years the increase in capital invested in manu factures should exceed the total in vested only 20 years ago. The value of our manufactured products in creased about 00 per cent.; add GO percent, to the output of 1890 and we would have $1 3,700,000,000 in 1900 but this is too much to expect. The same rate of growth in mining interests in this decade as in the last would make our mineral output in 1900 nearly $1,200,000,000, while a smaller percentage of gain, only equaling in volume the total increase in 1890 over 1H80, would bring the figures to over $ 950.000,000. If our coal-miners add to the out put of 1890 as many tons as they added to that of 1880, ignoring in this the percent age of growth, $217,000,000 will be the production of 1890. No other country in the world has advanced in population and wenlth as the United Statee is doing. The progress of th past shows no signs of halting. In fact the development of our foreign and domestic trade and commerce and of our industrial interests is steadily broadening out. Contrast our position and condi tion with Europe, with resources sur passing those of all Europe, with wealth creating possibilities in soil, minerals, timber, and climate un equalled by Europe and practically without limit as to their profitable utilization, with a homogeneous population of 05, 000,000 people un ve.xed by the arbitrary regulations of half a dozen different governments and free from the dram of standing armies, the United States justly com mands the wonder nnd admiration of the world. Great Britain is no longer the manufacturing center of the world, for we have taken the foremost posi tion in that line. Its vust iron nnd steel business is yearly increasing in cost of production, while ours is de creasing. It cannot meet the world's growing demand for iron and steel because it cannot increase its produc tion to any great extent. It pro duces less pigiron now lhau it did ten years ago. Much of its ore it im ported from distant countries. Its cotton is all imported. It spends about $750,000,000 a year for the foreign food stuffs. On thecontiuent every nation is burdened with debt and none of them can hope to pay off its obligations. Measured by their natural resourses and advantages forcontinued growth against their debts and the money disadvantages under which they labor they are practically bankrupt. In all of them the cost of production and living must steadily increase. In the United States we have scarcely laid the fouudation for our future greatness. In natural resources we are richer than all of Europe; we are paying off our debts faster than they are due, we have barely scratched the ground in the development of our mineral wealth and our agricultural growth can scarcely be limited. New Post-Office Rules. A funny postmaster recently sent to the post-office department a new set of post-office rules. They were: A pair of onions will go for two scents. Ink bottles must be corked when sent by mail. Persons are earnestly requested not to send postal cards with money en closed, us large sums ar lost in that way. Nitro-glycerine must be forwarded at the risk of the sender. If it should blow up in the postmaster's hand he cannot be held responsible. When letters are retcived bearing no direction the persons for whom they are intended will please signily the fact to the postmaster, that they may at once be forwarded. As all postmasters are expert lin guists the address may be written in Chinese or Choctaw. It is unsafe to mail apple or fruit trees with the fruit on them. It is earnestly requested that lovers writing to their girls will please con fine their gushing rhapsodies to the inside of the envelojM?. Ducks cannot be sent through the mail nlive. The quacking would dis turb the slumbers cf the clerks on the postal cars. When watches are sent through ttie mail, if the sender will put a notice on the outside, the postmasters will wind and keep in running order. John Smith gets his mail from 074,279 post-ollices, hence a letter directed to John Smith, United States, will reach him. When you send a money order in a letter, always write full nnd explicit directions in the same letter, so that any person getting the letter can draw the money. Alligators over 10 fettin length ure not allowed to bo transmitted by mail. The placing of stamps upside down on letters is prohibited. Several post masters have recently Iteen seriously injured while trying to stand tin their heads to cancel stamps placed in this manuer.
