Only one flaw marred the otherwise
complete success of this rising states

only unconquered foe. For thirty years
he waged unsuccessful warfare against
this personal enemy. At last Pcruna
came to the rescue. He writes :
“I have used several bottles of Pc

were almost unbearable.
‘‘I consulted different doctors but

to try Dodd's Kidney Pills. They did!

Moccasin Snake Is
One of the Most Vicious
"When It romrs to downright vi
rlousness among snakes,” said a man
from Arkansas, "I will put the water
moerasin against every other kind ol
snake on earth. I was reading a story
about the snakes of Martinique, and it
seems that they are afliieted on the is
land with a rather bad brand of
makes, snakes that really go around
looking for trouble. I could not help
thinking that the Martinique reptile
must be related in some way to the
vicious water moccasin which is to be
found in the St. Francis basin, up in
Arkansas. They are savage, and what
is ‘worse and more of it,’ they seem
to have organized for offensive and de
fensive purposes. There are millions
upon millions of these snakes in the
basin of the St. Francis river between
the Sunk Lands and the mouth of the
river, a few miles above Helena. I
have soon the lakes alive with them,
i have known of instances where it
would bo impossible for a farm hand
to water his horses nfier his day’s
work on account of the snakes. The
makes fed in the edges or the lake
during the evening, and as soon as au
effort would he made to water the
horse at a certain place they would
make a charge on that particular
place, wriggling in from the lake in
great numbers. They seemed to re
sent it as an encroachment upon their
rights ami no amount of 'shooting' or
chunking would drive them away.
They would simply choke the drink
ing place. I have seen this same thing
happen a number of times. Of course,
it would be necessary to take the
horse elsewhere for watering purposes.
They are exeremely poisonous, and I
1 ave heard of many instances where
the moccasin bite killed animals. Dogs
in that part of the country frequently
die as the result of being bitten by a
water moccasin. They are not bad
about running away when they are in
i flock. In fact, the running had bet
ter he on the other side if it happens
to be either near the beginning or at
the end of the snake season, for they
really seem to be more vicious and
more petulant, if I may say it, at the
extremes of the season than at other
times. I suppose there is some nat
ural reason for the fact. At any rate,
it is a fact. Coming back to the point
I will put the particular brand of Ark
ansas water moccasin to which I have
icferrcd against anything in the rep
tilian line to be found in Martinique,
cr in any other place, for that mat
ter, for I really believe they are the
most desperately vicious snakes on
the face of the earth."—New Orleans |
Strange Chance Proves
the Wor!d Is Not So Vast
"I have a cousin in America. No ,
doubt you have met him. He lives in
Topeka, Kan.”
Few are the voyagers to the other
side who have not bumped against
some such assertion and then fallen
under suspicion of being themselves
unknown, since the provincial mind
of the foreigner cannot realize that
the Western hemisphere is slightly
larger than a parish in Kent.
And this, apropos of the fact that
some years ago a certain New York
man who happens to be a ‘‘mighty
hunter before the Lord," journeyed to
Iiritish Columbia in search of big
game. While sojourning at Winnipeg
he expressed a desire to bag some
caribou and a friend who knew the
country thoroughly advised him to go
to Waubagun, a station on a branch
of the Northern Pacific.
“There is nothing nut a water tank
there," said his friend, “and only one
man in the whole section, a Scotch
recluse, who looks after the tank; but
he is a superb guide, and as he has
only one train a day to watch out for
he will give you all the sport you
The New Yorker went, won the re
gard of the hermit, and slew caribou
by the score.
Last summer he was in Scotland,
and while roaming over the moors one
cay lost his way. At length he espied
a little cottage, and making for it
inquired for directions and asked if
he could not be accommodated with
something to eat. His hostess, a
motherly Scotcli body, at once set
about getting him a “snack,” nnd, like
all rustics, during the course of her
preparations deluged him with ques
"An’ so ye're frae America, ye say?"
she finally interjected. "Happen ye
ken my son, Sandy McNeil? He's
been over there mony a year."
"I think not,” replied the visitor
wearily. “You see America is a very
large place. Where does your son re
“At Waubagun watc tank,” replied
the dame.
Strange frean of chance! A habitue

mother and her equally lonely son,
separated from each other by half the
distance around the globe.
Biblical Writings in
Old Turkish Mosque
Some very interest'.!;?; manuscripts
have been discovered in the vault of
the Jami-and-Kebar mosque, in Dam
ascus. Relying on an ancient tradi
tion, which said that important docu
ments relating to the early Christians
were stored there, certain Biblical
scholars requested the sultan to let
them search the vault, and after eon
ridering the matter for a year and
being assured by oriental scholars
that there were no ancient documents
in the vault relating to the Mahome
tan creed, he finally gave his consent.
As a result a thorough search was
recently made and many valuable
manuscripts were found. These were
taken to Constantinople, and an ex
amination showed that among them
were several fragments of the Olu and
New Testament in the ancient Syraic
tongue, as well as portions of a trans
lation of the Old and New Testament
in that Syraic dialect which was
spoken in Palestine in ancient times.
| Among the latter was a translation
t of some of the epistles of St. Paul,
the existence of which wa3 unknown
to scholars, and which is of great
value, as the dialect in which it is
written was spoken during the life oi
Among other ireasures discovered
were fragments of the Pentateuch, in
the Samaritan tongue, an Arabic
translation of the 73t’u psalm, seventy
seven pages of a hitherto unknown
commentary in the old Syraic tongue,
and several psalms and eleven pages
of the Pentateuch, written in Greek
and dating back to the 11th century
llaron Marschall, the German am
bassador to Turkey, has 6hown much
interest in tins discovery, and it is
said that the sultan has granted him
permission to send the manuscripts
to Berlin, with the object of having
them carefully examined by the best
biblical scholars in Europe.—Stray
On* Day In the Seven Should Qe Kept
Free From Work.
As a psychologist, 1 believe in the
Sabbath day. One day in seven should
be kept holy from work and sacred to
man’s primitive paradise of leisure.
I am no Puritan pietist or even Sabba
tarian in any severe sense, but hold
that this is one of the greatest of all
human institutions, nnd that the com
mand to keep it as a day of rest is
written in our physiological constitu
tions. If need be. it may be kept in
sleep, man’s great rcsterer. Monday
our nerves and brain must be re
freshed, and wc must start a new
weekly rhythm on a higher plane than
we closed the old one. The mental
scenery must be changed. The brood
er's overthought must have enlarged
our plans and given us botli moment
um and direction. What form the rest
cure should take differs perhaps for
each person. I go to church, but my
neighbor should perhaps spend the
day in the fields with children, in
music, in books, but for all there
should be peace, tranquillity, repose,
surcease of worry and relaxation. In
no land should the Sabbath be so hal
lowed as In this l?.nd of hustle, tension
and Americanitis.—G. Stanley Hal!, iu
Why Insomnia Had No Terror for the

During the last term of the lato Sen

walking down Pennsylvania avenue
about - o'clock one winter morning by
Maj. E. E. Pope.

Chamberlin's, Maj. Pope, with feigned
seriousness, said:

Qret Harte’s Complaint.
In an article of reminiscences Mary
Stuart lioyd says that the late Bret
Harte never obtruded his personality.
He also had a dread of people re
garding him for his work only, not
for himself. "Why didn't you tell me
it was Bret Harte who sat next to me
at dinner last night?” wailed one of
society’s smartest young matrons,
in a note to her hostess the morning
after a large dinner party. "I have
always longed to meet him and 1
would have been so different had 1
only known who my neighbor was.”
"Now, why can't a woman realize this
sort of thing insulting?” queried the
author, to whom the hostess had for
warded her friend's letter. "If Mrs.
-— talked with me and found me
uninteresting as a man how could she
expect to find me interesting because
I was an author?”
A Curious Bocth Relic.
An ordinary looking piece ot callous
ed skin is kept with extraordinary
care by C. H. Braley. chiropodist,
among h(3 other pedal curios. It is
nothing but a small corn, but it came
from the bottom of Edwin Booth’s
foot twenty-four years ago. and for
that reason is considered valuable by
the doctor. 11 s secured It while Booth
was playing in Dayton. O. it seer.r
that the actor was fond of doing part
of his aet'ng by emphatic use of his
feet, ho when the corn seized upon
him it injured bis work. He was re
ferred to Dr. Braley, placed himself
In the doctor's hands, and left there
the corn and a generous fee. The fee
was soon gone, but the calloused skin
wus religiously preserved in cotton.
Great Loss of Science.
A story is told of the late Professor
Snell of Amherst college, which re
lates how he once asked for a defini
tion of the solar coiona from a mem
ber of his class in astronomy. The
young man, after a good deal of hes
itation and a dread consciousness of
iinepding failure, plunged desperately
into the statement that he did know
what the corona was but had forgot
ten. The professor turned to his
class witn a tragic gesture. “What
an incalculable loss to science," he
exclaimed, with emotion, "that the
only man who ever knew what the
sun's corona is has forgotten!”
How “Doc ’ Brown Prospered.
"Hon. Doc” Brown of Morgansfleld,
Ky., -. ho represents his district in the

unique characters. To Illustrate a
point in a recent speech, he gave the
following account of his courtship:
“Take my ndvice and never give a wo
man anything she can't eat. and nev
er make love to her out of an ink hot
tle. Why. when I courted my wife. I
just grabbed hold of her and 1 said,
’Sallie, you are the sweetest thing on
earth, and your beauty bodies the
skill of man and subdues his ferocious
nature,’ and I got her.”
