Presbyterlana In Omaha ai?rally were pleased at the selection of the new mod erator by the general assembly t Det Moines, tr. Hunter Cnrbott. "H na done a j-nnrt (lav's work and deserves the honor," said Rev. A. S. C. Clarke, pastor of the Lowe Avenue rhurrh. "Ha la a good man and haa wrought wonderful amount of good for the church at home and abrri&d." All local pnatora of thla church concur In theee sentiment. Dr. Corbett waa the pioneer missionary In China. For over forty years he haa labored to teach the gospel of Christ to the benighted people of that country and only returned to his native land a little while ago on a year's furlough. When he went to China to begin hla work a a mis alonary the Christian encountered many more dangers and obstacles than now and Dr. Corbett had numerous escapes from summary treatment that -were sufficiently narrow to leave a strong Impression on his mind. But they did not daunt him In his mission. He had gone to stay and he stayed stayed, it Is aald, until his name became a household wore In China wherever the cause of Christ Is known and he Is be Vived by every convert and respected by every heathen, . - In - appearance the new moderator Is striking. Tall, mora than the average height, well proportioned, with long, flow ing, gray beard, he presents a patriarchal picture. He U quick; and nervous In action and especially so when on the rostrum or In tha pulpit. Bo long among the Chinese he speaks that language as fluently. If not more fluent, than he does his own, and he haa unconsciously acquired many of the little characteristics In speech and action of the Chinese. He had been known as the "father of missionaries" for all these years and had. Indeed, been a father to the new and young missionaries entering the distant and strange land where he so long had labored.

"The western Indians are great magi clans," says Colohel Buffalo Bill Cody. "I believe I have seen fakers of Just about all nationalities, but these western Indians of ours beat them all. "The modern stage niagtciun, of course, has the aid of assistants, and of a pre pared stage, but the wild Indian Just squats down on the prairie wherever he happens to be, seemingly without any preparation whatever, and does some things that will make a man's hair stand on end. "One day I saw a Sioux medicine man, with nothing on but a breech cloth and a dozen different paints, having in his hand a kind of wand, do some things with rat tlesnakes that I never saw equaled by any snake charmer In the world. The old fel low was a noted necromancer among his people, and I had often heard of him. One day, In his village, I met him and an ex hibition was quickly arranged. That fol low positively did not have time to make any preparations whatever, but went at his Job immediately. "He waved us away some ten feet or more and soon we were glad to be twenty feet away from him. He took his cane or wand, whirled It swiftly around his head a moment, and when he ceased doing so he was holding a big squirming rattlesnake by the tall. It was a lightning change, all right. He laid the snake on the ground, and when I next noticed It there wasn't any snake at all, but there lay that In dian's stick In Its place. "Grabbing the two plaits of hair which hung down his back, they, too, suddenly became live rattlers and twisted them selves around his neck, the hissing heads swaying back and forth near his face. "Then that old Indian produced or manu factured snake after snake. We never saw where he got them from, but in a few min utes he had the ground around him liter ally covered with them. But they remained near him. although crawling around, twist ing and squirming. Then the worst thing of all, that red Indian deliberately ate them up, one at a time. At. least he appeared to eat them alive, and finally there was nothing left but the wand and' his braids of hair, which had returned to Its natural self. "One day, over in the Big Horn basin, I saw a Crow Indian do some tricks that would make him famous If he ever got on the stage with them. This fellow took a buckskin tobacco bag, drawing it through his hands to show there wss nothing In It. He even tied it (n a knot, for the same purpose. Then he untied It and threw it on the ground. Almost Immediately a big Jack rabbit, with cars a font long, bounded nut of the sack, darted this way and that, like a streak of lightning, disappearing with a pack of camp dogs right after him. A moment later, and without the Indian going near the bag, three hlg rattlesnakes crawled out, threw themselves into posi; tion and were ready for a flght at once. But before they could raise a row a large owl came out of that bag. blinked and winked at the aun for a moment and then flew away. The Indian killed the shakes with his stick, picked up the hag. took out a pipe and some tobacco, loaded the pipe, nnd. without the formality of lighting It, began to puff away, while clouds of smoke rolled out. "But the very best piece of maglo T ever saw." said Colonel Cody, "was done by a Cheyenne Indian medicine man out In the wilds of Wyoming. There was a full dozen of us, and we sgreed we had never seen anything like It, and I never have since then, either. "We had formed a circle the whites nnd the Indians and when the conjurer entered he was without a stitch of clothing, except that he carried a gray army blanket across his shoulders. He had a big warclub in his hand. Along with him there came a little Indian girl, looking about 8 years old. The child didn't have much more on than old Medicine did, either. ' "The little girl lay flat down on the ground, and old Medicine covered her with the blanket, right in front of us all. Then he began making passes over the blanket, and, suddenly raising his war club aloft, he brought it down With fearful force on the Uttle body, of which we could plalnlj' see the outlines under the blanket. There was a scream, and I Instinctively grabbed my pistol, but managed to regain myself, knowing it was some kind of a fake. "Then, again and again, that big Indian struck that little girl, and she screamed time after time, the screams gradually be coming weaker and weaker.' The Indian Jumped onto the blanket with his feot Jumping up and down. We could see the red blood stains coming through the gray blanket, and I mentally resolved to shoot that old fellow before the exhibition waa over. "But suddenly old Medicine stopped his blows, reached down, picked up the edges of the blunket and lifted it up. We looked, expecting to see a corpse. There was noth ing whatever under the blanket. Old Medi cine grinned at me aa I stood with my mouVh open in amazement. We all ruahed up and examined the blanket. It waa wet aa If with blood, all right, but the body was not there. "Then old Medicine pointed away serosa the prairie. We looked and saw a figure running toward ua at top speed. It wss a quarter of a mile away. When It reached us It proved to be the little girl whom we had seen placed under the blanket! We couldn't explain it, and we didn't attempt to. Old Medicine wouldn't say how it waa done, and neither would any of the other Indians, If they knew. He would only sny, 'Wakan' the great mystery great un known!" Portland Oregonian. CURIOUS USES OF TIMBER Artleles that Are Made from the Refuse of American Forests. In the felling of the giant redwoods for timber tons upon tons of the foot-thick bark would accumulate as a result of the cutting up of the glanta. It was often found seriously in the way, interfering with the removal of the logs; otherwise It would have been allowed to remain on the ground until It rotted. Bo there waa nothing to do but burn the unsightly heaps. But one day a shrewd Connecticut Yan kee named Atkinson, a wood turner by trade, began to think about thla waate a bit and In the course of time had pro duced a whole variety of useful articles from the hitherto wasted bark, dubbed It "atkinsos" or vegetable asbestos and made an honest living for years therefrom. The Industry spread and now redwood bark ar ticles are in fact, always have been com mon properly for anybody to make in the west or east. Almost all rcLflc atate iwincs have ex- Good Morning i Have you seen the latest creations from New York City and abroad In Linen and Silk Suits and advance styles for fall that are on display In our establishment? , We would be pleased to have you call. amples In their rooms of the useful articles made from this bark. Some of these red wood bark articles are pin cushions, pen wipers, table mats, bathroom noiiiibsoiiient mats, fishing floats, temporary corks, life buoy tilling, "cork" Jackets, cold storage Insulation, house sheathing, heat Insula tion, moisture proof match safes, bicycle handles, chair seat mnts, silk hat brushes, sound-deadening insulation, mattress fill ings, cork carpet substitute. Curious natural brushes are produced from one of the palmetto species on our southern coasts. The "bristles" of the brush and the solid wood portion thereof are all one. The brushes are made In two ways. The extreme root of the tree Is a! mass of fibers. These are cut off close up to tho trunk, which Is sawn off about an inch up, and the slab la cut up into simple brushes for the bath, toilet, hair, etc. An other couple of Inches will be sawn off the trunk, well soaked and the pithy wood Jagged out from between the libers by a crude kind of steel or Jagged comb. These curious natural made brushes are only locally known and are occasionally sold to tourists. They are unknown to commerce In the American brush trade. They are possibly the longest lived brushes extant. Sclentitlc American. FAINTS AT SIGHT OF FOOD Penniless and llongry Traveler Col lapses from Weakness la Phil adelphia Hotel. Starving within sight of the dainties which society women were dispensing, Al fred Harwood. a friendless, penniless young Englishman, slipped from one of the chairs 111 the Walnut street corridor of the Belle-vue-Stratford, Philadelphia, and fainted. There the man lay prostrate while the orchestra played sweet music and women ate and chatted until Farrell, the hotel detective came along, carried him to an adjoining room and sent for Dr. Bloom, the house doctor. Dr. Bloom looked the mun over and said: "That man needs food, and he needs It badly." The man opened his eyes slowly, tried hard to smile and whispered: "I'll be all right In a few minutes, old man; I haven't had anything to eat for a long time and I'm weak. I'll be air right, though; Just let me rest a little while." That was enough for the hotel men. They carried Harwood to the steward's room and fed him with nourishing soup. For some time he could scurrely speak uhove a w'hisper. Harwood left Sun Francisco six months ago to work his way home to his father and mother in London. Recently he ar rived In Phlladephia and walked the streets from early morning to late at night, unable to get work. He spent his last 25 cents for a frugal supper. Since then he has been continuing his quest, but his pride kept him from begging. Harwood went to a number of hotels and applied for work, but there was no work for him. As a last resort he went to the Bellevue-8tratford and asked to see the. steward. No sooner had the boy started to And the steward than Harwood reeled Into a chair, too weak to stand. Dozens of fashionably dressed women passed him, well-fed men, smoking ex pensive cigars, sat or stood within a few feet of him; in the tearoom waiters were serving the best of things to eat and there In the big. red chair watching it all sat a man actually starving to death. In fact, few people were aware that Harwood was there until he slipped out of his chair to the floor. "I'm sorry to have caused so much trouble." ssld Harwood after he had been fed. "I'd like to get a Job if I ran. for I'm up against It pretty hard. I'm willing to do any kind of work I don't care what It Is, for I need money. and I don't want to starve that way' again.

ONE FIVE THOUSAND STAMP Said In Be mn the I'nlon Parlfle Bill of Sale and Cannot Be Purchased. Nearly $5i0 was paid the other day for a beautiful specimen of the green five-dollar revenue stamp. This stamp, although Is sued no further back than the early '70s, Is now among the rarest of the many priced revenues, to which stamp collectors are paying so much attention. Recent as was this stamp's production it was only a few years ago that stamp col lectors became aware of Its existence. It was brought to their notice by the dis covery of twenty-four specimens In a Lon don warehouse. In this warehouse there had been deposited many barrels of bay rum and some of these barrels bore the scarce stamps. The bay rum, which came from Jamaica to this country, was stamped here and then sent across the water. The barrels had been allowed to remain In their storage place for a number of years. Great as was the value of the liquid they contained, It was easily exceeded by that of the apparently Insignificant stamps, each One of which Is now valued at from 1350 upward. The fine copy referred to brought (408. The stamp belongs to the issue of 1871-5 and Is of the size of a small envelope. It Is printed In black and green, tlwv portrait ef Washington being In the center within an ovnl border. It was printed on two kinds of paper, violet and green. , There were issued, according to the government records, seventy-four on the violet and fifty on the green pa per. , The revenue stamps are in more than 00 varieties. Many of them were used during and after the civil war on all kinds of docu ments, such as agreements, certificates, bills of lading, contracts, powers of attor ney, bonds, warehouse receipts, convey ances, probate of wills, leases, life Insur ance policies, mortgages', bills of sale, bank checks, etc. They were made in denomina tions that ranged from 1 cent to $1,000 and there is even a story to the effect that a tTi.OOO stamp was Issued. According to the stamp dealer this speci men Is the most valuable stamp ever is sued by the I'nlted States and had Its origin owing to a singular circumstance. At the time the fnlon Pacific railroad was sold by the government in 1898 the revenue taxes established during the Spanish-American war were In force. Some 85,0(,fiO0 was involved In the trans action. The highest denomination of reve nue stamp at that time was 50. as the 1100, $500 and $1,000 varieties were not Issued un-' til liDO. It waa clearly out of the question to use stamps of this denomination, as the num ber required would almost cover the docu ment, so a special stamp of the denomina tion of $5,000 was ordered. Only two speci mens of the stamp were printed, one of which was placed on the bill of sale and that document la now said to be in the office of the president of the railroad. The other stamp was added to the govern ment collection of stamps In the postoffice department at Washington, which contains R specimen of every stamp that has been used by the I'nlted States. Of course this stamp has no official existence. Repeated offers. It is said, have been made for the stamp by collectors, some of them going as high as $5,000, but there la little possibility of the oddity ever being sold, as its absence from the document might lead to trouble.
