Tricks of Mcdlcfne Men.
A young Indian, who Is ambitious
to bfcomo u doctor, and finally a
prophet, leartiB from his father or
other members of his tribe the name
and medicinal properties of some herb.
He can also, by presenting a sufficient
lumber of ponlc-3 to a medicine man,
prevail upon tho doctor to Impart the
secret of the herbs to him. Frequently
Indiana nllego that the secret Is re
vealed to them In a dream, or by a
bird or an animal. After procuring It,
tho novice Is prepared to begin fin
practice of medicine. Success In their
opinion Is only possible with the aid
of tho Great Spirit, and In order to. In
voko tho help of tho supernatural
they resort to various sacrifices.
For Instance, there Is tho practice
of ascending a buttc or other elevation
and lying with the face to the ground
for several days without food or until
they nro completely exhausted. Dur
ing this period they profess to havo
been taught some Bong or tho Great
Spirit converses with them through a
weed, bird, wild animal, or reptile.
Tlicy frequently allege that wolves
coma to them and howl, and that they
understand what the animals say.
While treating a patient, they place

When Theodore Roosevelt retires
from tho presidential ofllce oir March
4 ho will have made n record for num
erous cabinet appointments. Tho last
cabinet meeting lie presides over, says
tho Boston Herald, will be composed
almost solely of comparatively now
men. There will be but one man, Sec
retary Wilson, who attended tho first
cabinet meeting that Roosovclt held
In tho autumn of 1901. Thero will bo
only one other, Secretary of tho Treas
ury Cortelyou, who was at tho cabinet
table In March, 1903. when Mr. Roose
velt entered upon his present term.
In the seven and a half yoars of his
tenure Mr. Roosevelt will have had
twenty different cabinet officers, but
not as many different men, for Mr.
Root has served under him Hi st as sec
retary of war and then as secretary of
Btate. Mr. Cortelyou has had three
cabinet positions commerce and la

General Bonaparto first came into tho
cabinet as secretary of tho navy.

In the same
block lived tho
and most lrrltablo
bachelor In tho
when an unexpect
ed mildness set In,
Miss Allco turned tho hose on her
sldowalk to wash away the ashes.
AH night long, however, the wind rose,
and tho fourteenth of February dawned
bitter cold, and tho water used for
washing off tho ashes froze.
Miss Luclnda was in the' kitchen
sifting nshes to resprinklo tho pave
ment, when she heard her Bister
shriek. Luclnda rushed to open tho
front door, and saw Allco on her
knees In tho street supporting tho
husky shoulders of Williams, who was
shouting lustily: "This is your work!
NIco, isn't it? Always knew your con
founded neatness would cost mo my

"I'll sue you for this, all right," he
By this tlmo Luclnda had ap

carried into your houso and a doctor
sent for at once." Beckoning to tho
bachelor's man servant, who hovered
near, she Instructed him how to assist
tho injured man without causing un
necessary pain. "
When Williams had been laid on a
disordered bed, Miss Luclnda made
him as comfortablo as possible before

The Saint's Day in Scotland
It seems to havo been a custom in
Scotland to choose one's valentine, If
Sir Waltor Scott is to bo trusted In
his account of tho wooing of tho Fair
Maid of Porth and Hal of tho Wynd
In tho novol. Tho always amusing and
ubiquitous Pepys, in his diary, which
neglects nothing under tho sun ap
parently, mentions St. Valentino's day
and Its customs in sovoral places, and
gives an amusing account of his wlfo,
fearing to opon hor oyos on St. Valen
tino's day while tho painters and dec
orators wero at work in hor room, lest
sho should see ono of thesn unsuitable
persons first instead of a moro comely
Whatovor tho origin of tho custom,
it has given rise to many quaint and
pretty fancies, and both poets and
lovors havo employed tho legend and
tho saint to good purposo. Tho send
pressed approval of all that had been
done, nnd left.
Williams heard this commendation
of tho maiden sisters, nnd after soma
"If you bring mo through without
crippling mo, I will let you off as light
ly as possible."
This unexpected generosity over
joyed tho ladles. They took their reg
ular turns, and the negro servant rued
tho day whon they invaded his
Blouchy kingdom. Though tho In
jured bachelor could not know of all
tho changes taking place, still ho felt
tho influence of orderly domesticity.
They really enjoyed tho nursing,
nnd their patient particularly appre
ciated having Miss Alice near, for bet
touch was delightfully soft. So, even
when tho physician camo, It was Miss
Alice who bandaged tho arm after it
ft Vr -ir
When able to bo around again It
waB difficult to break an acquired
habit, so it happened that Mr. Wil
liams went over morning and evening
for Miss Allco to attend to his nrm.
One morning he did not como; In
stead tho servant appeared with a note
for Mis3 Alice, who read it with
"I shall call this evening to suo for
my damages. If It Is not rendered me,
1 am afraid I must pioceed to extremo
Miss Alice cried tho better part of
tho day after the receipt of tho note,
and Miss Luclnda for onco was not
practical, so cried somo also.
At seven that evening tho door boll
rang and Miss Luclnda admitted Mr.
Williams and showed him Into tho par
lor whero Allco sat, openly tearful.
"Take a Beat," she whlsperod.
He sat down facing her, and took
her limp hand.
"Bless my soul," he cried; "what's
the matter?" ,
"Nothing," she exclaimed, and burst
t'l wish you'd cry for me," said tho
"Oh," she moaned, "we can't pay
thoso damages, (Mr. Williams."
' "Well, if you can't," said ho, "can
you do something else? Can you ac
cept the worn-out old Valentino that
was thrown at your gate about n
month ago? Not worth picking up,
perhaps, old-fashioned and full of
Haws, but a moBt loving valontlne."
With her cheok against tho band
aged arm, Miss Allco cried somo moro
but thero wero smiles shining
ing of letters and tho more or less
tawdry cut paper valentines, which
the chlldien of tho hist generation
were so familiar with, undoubtedly
gave rlso to tho modern fashion of
Christmas curds in this country and
In England, which has grown to bucIi
astonishing, not to say alarming, pro
portions, and tho comic valentine, that
hideous and dreadful creation, Is pre
sumably ono of tho ovlls resulting
from the custom. Howovor this inny
bo, it 1b exceedingly ngreeablo to re
ceive a gift of flowers, or fruit, or a
dainty book upon this midwinter fes
tival, and if it tuko tho form of a
moro useful present thoro Is a distinct
authority for sending oven theso, as
ono of tho oldest customs consisted'
In sending a veil of tissue or gnuza

The genuine sold everywhere
"Do you know of any woman who ever received any
benefit from taking Lycha E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound?" I any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar
to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be
surprised at the result. There is hardly a community in
this country where women cannot be found who have been
restored to health by this famous old remedy, made
exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs.
During the past 30 years we have published thousands
of letters from these grateful women who have been cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never
in all that time have we published a testimonial without
the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly
published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine.
Here is one just received a few days ago. If anyone doubts
that this is a true and honest statement of a woman's experi
ence with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound write
and ask her.
Houston, Tcxns. " When I first began talcing L.ydla 15. Flnlc
liaiu's Vcgotublo Compound I was a total wreck. I had liccn
Blck for three years with female troubles, chronic dyspepsia,
nnd a liver trouble. I had tried several doctor's medicines, but
nothing did mo any good.
"For threo years I lived on medicines and thought I would
nevor get woll, when I read an advortlsinent of Lydia liJ. Pink
ham's Vcgctnblo Compound, and was advised to try it.
41 My husband got me ono bottle of tho Compound, nnd It did
mo so much good I continued its use. I um now a well woman
nnd enjoy tho best of health.
"I adviso all women suffering from such troubles to givo
Lydia 13. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial. They won't
regret it, for It will surely euro you." Mrs. Bcsslo L. Hicks,
810 Clevclund St., Houston.
Any woman who is sick and suffering is foolish surely
not to give such a medicine as this a trial. Why should it
not do ner as much good as it did Mrs. Hicks.
