INLAND OF TRISTAN D'ACUNHA. SAYS ANIMALS SPREAD ILLS.
Where Human Beings Live a Life of
One of the fnost isolated colonies
of civilized human beings on the face
of the earth is that on the island of
Tristan d'Acunha, which lies almost
midway between the Cape of Good
Hope and Cape Horn. This lonely
island lies in such a position that it
misses both eastern and western ships
nd the Islanders receive only the
rarest visits from a whaler and o'/ra-
slonally from a British warship. The
inhabitants number about seventy and
are descendants of sailors, castaways
and a handful of soldiers left on tho
Island when it was garrisoned by a
company of British artillery during
the time of the great Bontparte's ex-
ile at St. Helena. When T. C. Kerry,
a British capitalist, visited Tristan
twelve years ago be found a sailor
ramed Green Installed as the chief
man. The islanders have no laws,
church or money, but they have plen-
ty of cattle and raise potatoes and
even grapes. Grain they cannot raise,
as this island is infested with rats.
The people are coarse-skinned and
rather childish in manner, but very
honest ami hardworking.
An Ex-Sheriff Talks.
Scott City, Kan., March 20th—(Spe-
cial.)—Almost every newspaper tells
of cures of the most deadly of kidney
diseases by Dodd's Kidney Pills,
Bright's Disease, Diabetes, Rheuma
tism and Bladder troubles, in fact any
disease that is o&the kidneys or caus-
ed by disordered kidneys is readily
cured by this great American remedy.
But It is in curing the earlier stages
of kidney complaint that Dodd's Kid-
ney Pills are doing their greatest
work. They are preventing thousands
of cases of Bright's disease and other
deadly ailments by curing Kidney Dis
ease when it first shows its presence
in the body.
Speaking of this work Ex-Sherifl
James Scott of Scott County, says:
"I have used eight boxes of Dodd's
Kidney Pills and must say that they
are Just the thing for Kidney Disease.
We have tried many kidney medicines
but Dodd's Kidney Pills are the best
of all "

Physician Declares There Is Peril In
Playing With Pets.
"The utmost care should be exer-
ciser in mingling with animals of all
species. Under no circumstances
should one allow a dog to lick his
hand, as the tongue of the animal is
infested with innumerable parasites
and hydrophobia and other diseases
may be transmitted in this manner."
Dr. John M. Dodson of Rush Medical
college gave this warning in the
course of a lecture on "Animal Para-
sites" before the Chicago Medical So-
The lecturer has made an exhaus-
tive study of his subject. He made
the statement that trichina was found
ia 2 per cent of the hogs.— It is due
to the carelessness with which they
were raised, he said, and even cook-
ing does not always kill the parasite.
It was declared that a ham that was
infected and boiled for ten or twelve
hours would still be unfit to eat, as
the heat at the bone would not be
greater than 180 Fahrenheit, which
was not sufficient to destroy the
"The mosquito must be guarded
against," continued the lecturer, "as
it has been shown that they spread
the germ of malaria and yellow
fever." In conclusion, the lecturer

Latin Now Little Used.
Latin has been the language of civil-
ization since before the Christian era,
and contains about all the intellectual
treasures of the world till the six-
teenth centMry. For a thousand years
nearly all who wrote had to write in
Latin to get readers, and nearly all
who read had to learn it in order to
ki ow what was written. Before the
Latin, the Greek was the principal
language of civilization, which grad-
ually passed into the modern Greek,
while the Latin passed into the Italian,
French and Spanish, forking into three
principal branches. It ceased to be a
spoksn language in the seventh cen-
tury. In modern times our great lan-
guages have sprung up (largely de-
rived from the Latin)—namely: the
German, French, English and Russian,
which now contain the world's intel-
lectual treasures, so that there is noth-
ing more written in Latin or Greek
and about all that is valuable is trans-
lated into modern languages. Latin
and Greek are still indispensable to
specialists in history and archaeology,
but are each year becoming less so to
Admiration Disgusted Gorky.
Maxim Gorky went to the theater at
Moscow one evening to see a play by a
popular writer. Instead of paying at-
tention to the stage the entire audi-
ence rose and greeted Gorky with pro-
digious acclamation. Then he deliv-
ered this address: "What on earth
are you staring at me for? I am not a
dancing girl nor the Venus of Milo nor
a drunkard just picked out of the riv-
er. I write stories; they have the luck
to please you, and I am glad of it. But
that is no reason that you should keep
on staring. We have come here t« see
a charming play. Be good enough to
uttend to that and leave mo alone."
More delighted than ever, the audi-
ence shouted with joy. Gorky jumped
out of his seat and left the theater in
Knew Her Cook Book, Anyway.
An East Side settlement teacher
was trying to develop tho idea of the
fraction Vt with a primary class.
"Now, children," she said, "If a
woman has six eggs and takes three
of them to make a cake, what part
does she use?"
There was a puzzled silence on the
part of the little class. Finally, a
small, girl, with a look of half-convic-
tion, raised a timid hand.
"Ah, I thought Jennie would know,"
*aid the teacher. "Well, what part
would she use, Jennie?"
"I think she would use the yolks,"

WOMEN NOT TRUTHFUL
This Statement Mas Been Unjustly Made, Because
Modest Women Evade Questions Asked By
Mrs. Ella Lee
An eminent physician says that
"Women are not truthful; they will lie
to their physician." This statement
should be qualified; women do tell the
truth, but not the whole truth, to a
male physician, but this is only in re-
gard to those painful and troublesome
disorders peculiar to their sex.
There can be no more terrible ordeal
to a delicate, sensitive, refined woman
than to be obliged to answer certain
questions when those questions are to write you for advice. I did so and corn-

ovaries and ulcers on my womb. I was under
the doctor's care for about three months, and
tho only time I was not in pain was when
under the influence of morphine. The doctor
finally said I never would* be better, and
would be an invalid the rest of my life. I had

The fact that this great boon, which

Many such grateful letters as the fol-
