Scrofula, a Vile
Scrofula is the most obstinate of blood
troubles, and is often the result of an
inherited taint in the blood. S. S. S.

enough to reach Scrofula ; it forces out
every trace of the disease, and cures
the worst cases.

that I had failed to catch her meaning,
she looked about on the counters, then,

calmly tore out the leaf, handed it to
me, smiled and went out." The as

How Two Men Got Over tbe Great
"It looks a little like snow." said
the weather man the other day as he
looked first out of the window and
then let his eye wander over the great
glass map in the senate lobby. There
was a fine beating snow outside Just
whitening the ground in places and
piling up in drifts several Inches deep
against the terrace, says the Washing
ton Star. Both west and south and
east on the map were great white ar
rows pointing toward Washington and
two great "highs" were racing from
different quarters for the capital. From
Chicago was reported a record of 10
degrees below zero and from Colorado
was reported snow deep enough to
cover up small towns. The weatner
man was figuring on the depth of the
snow at Como and Apex and calculat
ing the velocity of the wind, and from
this and the general atmospheric con
ditions outside, concluded that Wash
ington was threatened with snow. "It
is no plaything," the weather man
sa!d, 'when they have snow like this
in the Rockies. I had an experience
in going from Helena, Mont., over the
divide some years ago. It was a beau
tiful day when my companion and my
self left Helena. There was deep snow
on the ground and in the mountains
there were some immense drifts. But
the snow was packed and the sun was
bright. Before we got on the top of
the divide it began to snow, and it is
snowing now, fine drifting snow, and
the wind got up to about fifty miles
an hour. Within two hours there was
no sign of the trail anywhere. We
were In a beating blizzard and couldn't
tell which way we were going. We
strugg;ed along blindly until we got
on top of the divide. All we could
tell was that we were going down on
the other side, and we had no idea
where we would wind up. The horses
were afraid and did not want to face
the drifts, and we were half dead
with cold. In floundering through one
drift we got tangled In a w'r"', and
that was our salvation. It was tv3 sin
gle wire on the government telegraph
line. The drift was clear up to the
top of the telegraph pole at that point,
but it was for the most part within
three or four feet of the wire. We
knew we must follow this line to find
our way. We could not do so by
sight. One of us had to book his arm
around the wire and hold on to it
while the other took care of the horses.
He would just slide the wire along
in the bend of the elbow, letting go
only to pass each pole, and in this
way we got into Deer Lodge. It seems
strange here to talk about walking on
about the level of the tops of tele
graph poles, but that's what we did

and if properly attended to these frac

little trouble. As soon as the injury
is noticed the fracture must be care
fully cleaned and washed with warm
water, and then wrapped with a bit of
antiseptic cotton. Splints are then
prepared for the fractured limb,
preferably of split elderwood, the pith
of which is taken out. These splints
are fastened to the cotton with a drop
of glue, and held tightly in place by
being wound with linen thread. The
bandage and dressing are left undis

Mastodons la Beaver Iams,
The discovery of the remains of a
mastodon near Newburgh, New York,
last summer, recalls the fact that the
best preserved skeleton of one of these
huge animals now to be found in our"
museums was also 'discovered in a
marsh near Newburgh. That part of
the Hudson Valley appears to have
been a favorite haunt for these Ameri
can elephants. Inspection of the place
where the latest discovery was made
emphasizes the fact that beavers were
contemporaries of the mastodons, and
that beaver-dams were as perilous as
quicksands for the massive beasts who
ventured to set foot in them.

Bow tho Filipinos Bory Their Dead.
, A Manila correspondent of an Amer
ican newspaper says that the Filipinos
do not bury their dead under ground,
but in tiers of masonry. In Manila, ,
Paco cemetery is the most important
place of burial. The high walls of
masonry in which are the long aulta,
each the size for one body, are built
in circles, one within the other, witn
a walk between. As the coffin is thrust
in the vault the mourners rend the air
with their wails, but they stand by
quietly while it is sealed with bricks
and mortar; when the final crevice
had been filled they quietly disperse.
These vaults are hired, not bought, of
the church, and when the rent is not
forthcoming the body is torn out, no
matter In what state of preservation,
and the vault rented to some one else
who can afford to pay. The bones thus
desecrated are thrown in a heap in a
place prepared for the purpose, where
there is a large and gruesome collec
tion. EVIL DOERS TRAPPED.
Tby Art AU Aoxiooa to Hear from th
Woman They Lots.
From the Indianapolis News: "It is
queer what risks some men will take
to get a letter from a woman they
love," said John Edmunds of the gen
eral delivery department of the pot
office. "Criminals who can be found in
no other way are often arrested when
they call for mail at the general de
livery window. Generally, the men
call for letters written by some wom
an. Along close to the holidays last
year a Pinkerton detective came to the
office and waited for three days ana
nights for a man wanted in the East,
who was supposed to be in this city.
The detective knew that before the
murder he was accused of committing
the man had corresponded with a wom
an In the East. The detective had been
waiting three days, when he received
word to go to Columbus. Ohio, as there
was a letter at that office for the man.
He went, and had not been there long
when the man made hia appearance.
Th rletective arrested him at once
and proceeded to Cleveland, where the
prisoner was tried and sentencea u
rieath. Another Instance was where
not long ago the authorities were look
ing for a man accused of committing
some big crime and had no clew at all
as to where he was; so every office in
the country was sent word to look out
for a letter for that man. Some time
after one came to our office and we at
once notified the authorities. A detec
tive came on immediately, and when
the man asked for his mall he was at

Money Orders Tht Fll to Reach,
In the course of the last year nearly
50,000 money orders failed to reach the
payees. The number of such cases in
creases from year to year, correspond
ing with the aggregate business. In
many cases remitters hold the orders
as receipts; in other cases failure to
deliver is due to defective address; but
the bulk of the loss occurs through the
stealing of letters by persons In the
employ of the payees or remitters
Whenever loss Is reported, whether
actual or alleged, a duplicate is drawn
promptly, the issue of which makes the
original void. In the last year the
number of duplicates Issued was 46,263,
being an increase over the preceding
year of 1,908.

We have Just heard of a narrow es
cape that Mrs. Ham Twombly had a
little while back. It seems she was
boiling a kettle of soft soap out In the
back yard when her gingham apron
caught fire. If she hadn't had the
presence of mind to scream it might
have been our pamrui duty to chronl
cle a dreadful holocaust. But Bill
Sloane. who happened to be going
down the alley at the time, jumped the
back fence and let her down by the
nape of the neck In the cistern. We
understand Ham Twombly, when he
heard of it, offered Bill $5 as a reward
for his heroic conduct, but Bill nobly
refused It. While the fire was being
put out In the cistern the kettle boiled
over, and Mrs. Twombly lost three or
four gallons of good soap. She has the
heartfelt sympathy of the entire com

GERMAN TOYS FOR CHILDREN.
Keep Oar JavsnUes la a State of Per
The American child is usually cred
ited with keen powers of observation,
says the New York Commercial Ad
vertiser. Just what he thinks of some
of his elaborate toys would make In
teresting reading. His cable cars and
bis Brooklyn bridge, his Niagara falls
and his Grand Central depot are all
"made in Germany." No wonder the
wonders of America are wonders in
deed to the child who has learned all
about them in the nursery. The Ger
man idea of a fountain is not the Mad
ison square nor the Central park idea
at all. It includes tritons and dol-
phlns and mermaids and Germanla In
a steel corset in the cente.- of the basin.
A signal-tower toy made in Germany
would bewilder a railroad president.
It looks like a filigree windmill and Is
painted every shade from pale rose to
deep green. The fire engin?s and "hook
and ladder companies" must grieve the
small boy who has seen and waxed
ecstatic over "the real thing." German
toymakers cater to the American mar
kets, which accounts for the startling
reproductions of our naMonal institu
tions. Every spring the toy fair at
Lelpsic blossoms forth in ocean steam
ers, brownstone dollhonses, railway
trestles, trains of cars, yachts, ware
houses and other American luxuries
and necessities in miniature. But the
resemblance is only near enough to
the original to satisfy the artless man
ufacturers. It exercises the American
child's Imagination and taxes his mem
ory to recall where he hns s;en some
thing that this or that toy reminds
him of. If he is energetic and patriotic
he reralnts his cable car or fire engine
and tears down the German flags from
the towers of the Brooklyn bridge. A
great effort to be truly American was
made by one toymaker this season. He
made a railway station and painted its
two gothlc towers pale green and pale
blue respectively; then he fitted up one
tower as a "waiting room" and the
other- as the station master s office.
The names of these departments were
printed In English over the door or
each. The arch, which Joined the two
towers and beneath which passengers
had to pass to bay tickets before rush
ing out on the tracks beyond, bore a
dock, flanked by the German coat-of-arms.
Above this, in big black letters.
"Central station. Bahnhof." U printed.
and from the flagstaff floats a Swiss
flag. But the funniest feature is the

small round tables, on each of which
is a glass of beer. Shades of American

by the Harriman Alaska expedition,
that most of the glaciers which abound
in that territory are receding. The fact
is au indication that the average
weather there Is growing warmer. If
it were growing colder the glacers
would be advancing, while if It were
about the same one year with another

position, neither creeping nearrr to the
sea nor melting away from their ter

recession Is so slow, however, that fur
overcoats and warm sleeping-bags are
likely to remain as a part of the neces

some years to come. Nothing, it may
be added, is slower than the move
ment of a glacier, except the settle
