Summary of Lleatnnant Scliwatka'i Ob
ier»»tlons Among This Northern People.
Lieutenant Schwatka describes many
teresting customs of the Esquimaux,
bserved in his Arctic explorations,
hey live in small scattered communi
in ice-houses called iqloos, and are
onstantly shifting from old to newly
onstructed villages. These little com
lunities are entirely independent, and
ave little communication with one an

jected, is iu no sense obligatory. The

Thoro is no punishment for crime.
Ihienscs of all kinds are of infrequent
ciirrenoe, and are generally con
turned by some trilling com
Uisation to the sull'crer. If murder is
lommitted the criminal is required by
he old men to pav to the widow,
u- relatives of his victim, a penalty con
listing of a prescribed quantity of meat
nd skins. If he refuses to* pay this
naity, he is in disgrace ana suiters
ocial ostracism, which subjects him to
ich inconveniences that, usually, he is
jieedily subjugated, and upon compli
mce is restored to respectability.
Marriage is sacredly binding upon the
ife, but the husband may, at pleasure,
nodify her marital obligations or di
mrce her absolutely. The Esquimau
nnter takes his wife and children
itli him wherever he goes. He under
ikes 110 expedition for hunting or any

•laics an amiising incident illustrative
both this custom and the marital
ractices of these primitive people.
•Invatka was about starting on a trip
."iniring an absenceofsome weeks from
camp, which was in one of the na
ve villages.
Jo, his Esquimau guide, was to pilot
tie expedition. Jo had a wife and
•ven children. But Jo refused to o-o,
t:i any terms, unaccompanied by Tiis
Wily. Presently it was remembered
iat jo had a personal friend in the vil-
who had a wife and no children,
•nd after some diplomacy it was ar
tuiged that, for the purpose, and dur
wx the term of this expedition, Jo and
is friend should swap wives and ac
•rdingly Jo's wife and her seven cliil
|ivn remained with his friend, and tlio
•it-nd's wife went with Jo. Upon their
turn they swapped back, and the i'or
relations were happily resumed.
The Esquimaux, as the ages pass,

A Lady's Irrepressible Mania for Baking
Women sometimes have very queer
hobbies. One of the most influential
members of an up-town church is a lady
distinguished for her piety and good
works, who can not for the life of her
k-ep from patting her hands together
every time she hears music. She oc
casionally scandalizes the religious folk
who occupy pews near her own by
starting up this patting when the church
organ rol out the voluntary. Often
she pats so loud that the noise can be
heard all up and down the aisle, and
the usher gets wild with anxiety lest
somo one will come to him and com
plain about it. The husband of the
lady has remonstrated with her about
the habit, and she has promised time
after time never to do it, again. She
has tried wearing thick, soft gloves and
keep'ng her hands in her muff, but it
i- of no avail, for when she can't pat
her hand she makes -twice as much
racket with her feet, and her husband
has concluded that he prefers the lesser
evil of the two. No one lias yet been
able to wire her of her hobby. While
patting her hands she sits with a smile
on her faoe, as one rapt. I can remem
ber, now- six other women afflicted
with hobbies. One of them is baking
gino-er cake?. This remarkable woman
is positively unhappy unless she is in
the kitchen. She makes, «n an aver
age, one thousand ginger cakes a week
during the winter months, and gives
them away to her friends. She regu
larly presents a large panful of them to
the mite society of the church to be
distributed around among the needv of
the parish. They are good cakes, too,
I can assure you. She has been known
,to cook all night, and there hasn't been
a festival during the last ten years at
which her ginger cakes have not been
on the bill of fare When she goes to
visit her friends li'X first question is:
"Aiw those ginger eakes all gone, li
they are, and they usually are, she
takes off her shawl acd walks down to
the kitchen in a business-like manner
and proceeds to cook a panful of cakes,
iust as unconcernedly as though she
was iu her own house. Once in a

The Birth of an Iceberg
The berth of a huge iceberg, a phe
nomenon that has been seen only once
or twice by a European, and to a cer
tain extent has remained a matter of
theory, was observed by the Danish ex
plorers on the east coast of Greenland
last summer. The bergs are formed
by breaking off from the end of glaciers
extending from the perpetual ice of the
unexplored interior to the coast and
into the sea. The water buoys up the
sea end of the glacier until it breaks
by its own weight with a noise that
sounds like loud thunder far away.
The commotion of the water as the ice
berg turns over and over in the efl'ort
to attain its balance is felt to a great
distance along the coast. The natives
regard it as the work of evil spirits,
and that to look upon the glacier in its
throes is death. The Danish officers,
when observing the breaking off of the
end of the great glacier Puissortok
through their telescopes, were roughly
orderetl by their Esquimaux escort,
usually submissive enough, to follow
their example and turn their backs on
the interesting scone. They had hap
pily completed their observations, and
avoided an embarrassing conllict with
their crew by a seeming compliance
with the order.—Boston

An Important Arrest.
The arrest of a suspicious character upon
his general appearance, movements or com

portant is the arrest of a disease which, if
not checked, will blight and destroy a hu
man life. The frequent cough, loss of appe

and bodily aches and pain-, announce the
approach of pulmonary consumption, which

A Blatter In Which the Public Should
Have a Deal of Interest.
Why does the Government spend so much
money and risk so many lives in trying to
capture the counterfeiter?
"Suppose he does counterfeit Govern
ment bonds and notes, surely the Govern
ment is rich enough to stand any loss his
act may confer!"
But the individual citizen could ill afford
to be put to continual financial loss if such
desperadoes were let go unwhipped of
It is only the valuable thing that is coun
terfeited it is only in the light of purity
and virtue that impurity and vice can be
known. No one in these days would coun
terfeit a Confederate bond or note.
People who commit, fraud always do it by
simulating the highest virtue by preying
on the cleanest reputation, by employing
the fair name of virtue with which to give
respectability to vice.
Let us explain: Seven or eight years ago,
so we have been informed many times in
public prints, a New York State gentleman
was pronounced, as many millions have
been pronounced before, incurably sick of
an extreme disord er. By suggestions which
he believed were providential, he was led to
the use of a preparation which had been
for several years employed by a select few
physicians in New York city and one
or two
other prominent places. The result was
that he was cured, he whom doctors with
out number and of conceded ability said
was incurable. Having secured possession
of the formiila, ribxohitely and irrevocably, he
determined to devote a portion of his ac
cumulated wealth to the manufacture and
sale of this remedy for the benefit of the
many who suffer as he suffered, in apparent
hopelessness. In less than three years, so
tremendous became the demand for this
remedy and so exalted the reputation, that
he was obliged for his purposes to erect a
laboratory aud warehouse containing four
and a quarter acres oC flooring and filled
with the most approved chemical and man
ufacturing devices. Probably there never
was a remedy that has won such a meritori
ous name, such extraordinary salesand has
accomplished so much good for the race.
Unprincipled Parties who flourish, only upon
the ruins of others, saw in this reputation and
sale an opportunity to reap a golden har
vest, (not legitimately, not honorably) for
which purpose they have made imitations
and substitutions of it in every section of
the country, and many druggists, who can
make a larger profit on these 'mitation
goods, often compromise their honor by
forcing a sale upon the unposted customer.
Yes, undoubtedly the manufacturers
could well afford to ignore such instances
of fraud so far as the effect upon themselves
is concerned, for their remedies have a con
stant and unremitting sale, but they feel it
to be their duly to imrn the public against such
imitations and substitutions, non-secretand
otherwise. The individual who buys them
and the public who countenances their sale
alone suffer in mind, body and estate there
The authors of somo of these fraudulent
practices havo been prosecuted and sent to
prison for their crimes, but there is another
class who claim to know the
formula of this
remedy and one Sunday-school journal, we
are told, has prostituted its high and holy
calling so far as to advertise that for twen
ty-five cents it will send all new subscribers
a transcript of the Warner formula! This
formula, by the way, must bo a wonderful
ly kaleidoscopic affair, for there is hardly a
month passes when some paper is not issued
which pretends to give the only correct
The manufacturers inform us that they
would bo perfectly willing that tho public
should know what the true formula of War
ner's safe cure is, (none that have been pub
lished are anything like it), but even if ev
ery man, woman and child in the United
States were as familiar with this formula
as with their A C!s they could not com
pound the remedy. The method of manufac
ture is a secret. It is impossible to obtain
the results that are wrougat by this remedy
if one does not have the perfect skill ac
quired only by years of practice for com
pounding and assimilating the simple ele
ments which enter into its composition.
The learned Dr. Foster, the honored head
of Clifton Springs sanitarium, once said
that having roughly analyzed this remedy
he recognized that the elements that com
pose it were simple buA he attributed the
secret of its power to the method of its com
pounding, and this method no one knows
except the manufacturers and no one can
acquire it.
Our advice to our renders, therefore, can
not be too strongly emphasized. As you
v/ould prefer virtue to vice, gold to dross,
physical happiness to physical misery,
shun the imitator and refuse thereby to
lend your aid financially to those who seek
to get, by trading upon another's reputa
tion and honesty, a sale for wares and
which on their merits are fit' only to
rejected as tho veriest refuse. You can
neither afford to patronize such people nor
can you afford to take their injurious com
pounds into our system. When you call
for Warner's Safe Cure see that the wrap
per is black with white letters and that the
wrapper and label bear an imprint of an
iron safe, the trade mark, and that a safe is
blovm in the back of the bottle and that a per
fect ie promissory note stamp is
over the cork.
You can't be imposed on if you observe
these cautions.
Wo have the highest respect for the rem
edy we have mentioned and the highest re
gard for the manufacturers, and we can not
too highly commend their dignified and con
siderate tone in relation to those who would
traduce their fair name and ruin the best
interest of the public in ~nch matters.

Women doctors are so numerous now
that the prejudice against them has long
since died out. There are several in the
United States, it is said, who enjoy an
annual income of $30,000 and over, and a
practice worth $5,000 a year is common.
They have reached their present honorable
position by hard and conscientious work,
and all they receive is well earned. Medi
cal colleges for women are now established
in all the large cities and the graduates
from them number several hundred every
year. Among the women doctors of Illi
nois is Miss Addie M. Barnes, of Danville,
who recently moved to that city from La
fayette, Ind. She has recently had herself as
a patient, and how she was successful in
working a cure she tells as follows:
1 had a very stubborn case of sciatica
and had been confined to my bed for three
weeks. I had blistered the limb and used
all kinds of liniments to no purpose. Rev.
Dr. Buchtel told me of the wonderful rem
edy, Athlophoros. Our druggist sent for it
and 1 bought two bottles of it. Before 1
had taken three doses 1 was able to get out
of bed and sit up for two hours. In three
days I went down the street. I believe
that had I persevered with the remedy the
cure would have been permanent. How
ever, I have never been such a sufferer since.
I keep Athlophoros in my office and often
tell patients of the great relief it gave me,
ami recommend it"
E. K. Mercer, proprietor of the Princeton
says of Athlophoros:
"It is a good medicine and did me more
good than did half a dozen doctors."
Mr. John H. Hutsel, proprietor of the
West Side Pavillion, No. 678 West Indi
ana street. Chicago, who had been a victim
of rheumatism, says:
1 never had a severe case of sickness
before this rheumatism came on me and I
would just remark right hero that I never
want another such. When it first made its
appearance I consulted a physician, but his
medicine made me worse. I then weat to
St Joseph's Hospital. After being there
some time and getting no relief 1 went
back home. After being at home a few
days I heard about Athlophoros and de
cided to try it myself. I came from the
hospital on the 3d of July. Two days aft
er that I was unable to walk or sleep at
night I was in this condition when I com
menced with the Athlophoros on the 7th
inst, and by the 15th of the month I was
well. You can see by my book,, I have an
exact record of the dates of the time I com
menced using and when I was well."
"How long were you sick, Mr. Hutsel?"
"For five weeks I was confined to my
bed, during which time I lost twenty-three
pounds of flesh."
How much did you use to effect this
Two bottles did the work and I have
not felt any pain or return of the disease
"Have you known of any others that
have used Athlophoros?"
"Yes the lady that recommended it to
me said she knew of an old chronic case of
twenty years' standing that had been cured
by the use of Athlophoros. I have had
