PURSUED BY WILD ELEPHANTS.
Death of a Wounded Bull Saved the
"I was kneeling, while my men fay
flat on their faces," writes C. G. Schil-
lings in his "With Flashlight and
Rifle." of an elephant hunting inci-
dent. "I sent two more bullets into j
the male elephant. The whole herd
then gathered around an old lemale
elephant and broke away in a quick
shuffle. Since they turned to the
right I enjoyed the grand sight of
twenty-four elephants passing at a
distance of about 450 feet. The
wounded male passed a little nearer
to me and I could not refrain from
firing at him once more. The whole
herd stopped, took the young ones
into their midst, looked around and
sniffed the air.
"They discovered us, and, led by
two females, they came to attack us.
The situation became very critical,
for ia the long run the animals were
bound to overtake us. I fled as fast
as my feet would carry me in the
wake of my men, who were running
away from the animal at a right angle.
They knew, as I did, that the ele-
phant's sense of sight is weak and
that our only chance of escape lay in
changing, from time to time, the
direction of our flight.
"We did not dare look around, but
hurried on in breathless haste. The
thundering, dull noise of the pursuing
plephants came nearer and nearer.
Then suddenly a piercing, trumpet-
like sound was heard above the dull
noise. Turning around I saw the
wounded animal falling into a sitting
posture and the rest of the herd in
■vild flight away from us."

While the ballots continue to fall

a dull thud.
A peculiar feature about the Co-
manche language is the method of
counting. A Comanche will count up
to 10 in the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
method, but there he stops. He does
not use eleven but instead he counts
it as "10 and 1 more," and so on, un-
til he reaches 19, which he pro-
He then pronounces 20, but starts
in with "20 and 1 more" until he
reaches 29, which he counts S9, then
starts in with 30, like he did 20, and
count* to 39, and so on all the way
Counting is the most difficult thing
to learn in the Comanche language.
In fact, by the time a person has
learned to count in that language he
has pretty well mastered It.
As there is no alphabet In the lan-
guage, the only way to learn it is by
word of mouth. Any attempt to write
it in the English alphabet would be
absolutely fruitless, as the proper pro-
nunciation could not thereby be trans-
It Looked That Way.
An Irishman and his mother-in-la*
were crossing the Atlantic. They
were both seasick and the mother-in-
law died. According to marine cus-
tom they wrapped the body in canvas
and in the absence of pig iron te
weigh down, the body, a bag of coal
was attached. Just as they were
about to cast the body into the deep
Pat, sufficiently recovered, came on
deck, and seeing the preparations,
"And what are you doing?"
"Well," Bald the captain, "Pat, we
are burying your mother-in-law, and
the weight, you know, sinks the body
down, down, down."
"i know where she's going all right,
but does she have to take her owr
coal?" was Pat's question.
Beans Beat Battle Ships
Boston ought to know beans, when
in a single year the gross receipts of
beans here were more than 68,000 bar-
rels, each barrel containing Ave bush-
els. These figures mean 343,000 bush-
els, or 10,997,120 quarts, weighing 21,
The statistics are supplied by the
New England Grocer for the year 1904,
and that authority adds that the de-
mand for beans in Boston Is steadily
Increasing, and that 15.000 more bar-
rels were sold in 1904 than in 1903.
The total retail cost of the beans
received in Boston In 1904 was |ti,-
598,272. This is a greater sum than
would buy the largest battle ship in
the United States, and who will deny
that it is much better spent in beans
than battle ships, when one considers
the relative results?—Boston Globe.
"How's your case coming?" inquired
his sympathizing friend.
"Its all over but the alimony," re-
turned the care-free man, wearily.

Vestry, Miss., Jan. 1st (Special)—
The case of Mrs. C. W. Pearson, who
resides here is a particularly inter-
esting one. Here is the story told by
Mr. Pearson, her husband, in his own
words. He says: —
"My wife's health was bad for a
long time. Last July she was taken
terrible Dad with spasms. I sent for
the doctor, and after making a thor-
ough examination of her, he said un-
doubtedly the cause of her trouble was
a disordered state of the Kidneys.
His medicine didn't s^em to be doing
her much good, so as I heard about
Dodd's Kidney Pills, I got her a box
Just to give them a trial. Well the
effect was just wonderful. I saw that
they were the right medicine and I
got two more boxes. When she hajl
taken these she was so much better
that she had increased thirty pounds
In weight. She is now quite well, and
we owe It all to Dodd's Kidney Pills."
Chinese Would Enlist

ish subjects, twenty Victoria, B. C.,

'Tor fifteen year* I have constant-

It as an old friend and true one.
Mrs. Eula Preslad.
"But I don't love you," objected the
"Then, why," howled the Indignant
youth, referring hastily to divers mem-
oranda in his pocket diary, 'did you
•at a total of sixty-five pounds of
sixty-cent candy I bought you during
the past year if you didn't love me?"
"Because." she said, with a rapt ex-
pression on her lovely features, "I do
love ctady." ,
Motorists Boycott a Town
The police of Andover, Hampshire,
England, have been so active in ar-
resting motorists that the latter have
boycotted the town, to its loss in a
very heavy sum during he last year.
The motorists even stopped their sub-
scriptions to local charities.
Long Lost Will Found
At a book sale in a Paris auction
room the other day, a gentleman turn-
ing over the leaves of one of the
books saw a time worn piece of paper
which he had the curiosity to open.
This proved to be a will executed in
proper order about ninety years ago,
but never proved. It was that of a
woman whose death, as subsequent in-
quiry has shown, took place eighty-five
years ago. As no will could be found,
intestancy was assumed, and a person-
ality of sixteen thousand pounds was
divided among relatives. In tact, the
will bequeathed everything to a niece,
long since dead, and the question now
arises as to the claims of her descen-
dants against those of the other par-
Mouth and Eyes Covered With Crusta
—Hands Pinned Down—Miraculous
Curs by Cuticura.
"When my little boy was six monthi
old, he had eczema. The sores extend-
ed so quickly over the whole body
that we at once called in the doctor.
We then went to another doctor,
but he could not help him, and In our
despair we went to a third one. Mat-
ters became so bad that he had regu-
lar holes in his cheeks large enough
to put a finger into. The food had to
be given with a spoon, for his mouth
was covered with crusts as thick as
a finger, and whenever he opened the
mouth they began to bleed and sup-
purate, as did also his eyes. Hands,
arms, chest, and back, In short the
whole body was covered over and
over. We had no rest by day or night.
Whenever he was laid In his bed, we
had to pin his hands down; otherwise
he would scratch his face and make an
open sore. I think his face must have
Itched most fearfully.
"We flually thought nothing could
help, and 1 had made up my mind to
send my wife with the child to Eu-
rope, hoping that the sea air might
cure him, otherwise he was to be put
under good medical care there. But,
Lord be blessed, matters came differ-
ently, and we soon saw a miracle. A
friend of ours spoke about Cuticura.
We made a trial with Cuticura Soap,
Ointment and Resolvent, and within
ten days or two weeks we noticed a
decided improvement. Just as quickly
as the sickness had appeared it also
began to disappear, and within ten
weeks the child was absolutely well,
and his skin was smooth and white
as never before. F. Hohrath, Presi-
dent of the C. L. Hohrath Company,

A Trite Saying.
It Is a trite saying that no mlTl Is
stronger than his stomach. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery strengthens
the stomach—puts it in shape to make
pure, rich blood—helps the liver and
kidneys to expel the poisons from the
body and thus cures both liver and kid-
ney troubles. If you take this natural
blood purifier and tonic, you will assist
your system in manufacturing each day
s pint of rich, red blood, that is invigo-
rating to the brain and nerves. The
weak, nervous, run-down, debilitated
condition which so many people suffer
from, Is usually the effect of poisons in
the blood; it is often Indicated by pimples
or boils appearing on the skin, the face
becomes thin and the feelings "blue."
Dr. Pierce's "Discovery" cure* all blood
humors as well as being a tonic that
makes one vigorous, strong and forceful.
It is tho only medicine put up for sale
through drugaists for like purposes that
contains neither alcohol nor harmful
habit-forming drugs, and the only one,
every Ingredient of which has the profes-
sional endorsement of the leading medical
writers of this country. Some of these
endorsements are published in a little
book of extracts from standard medical
works and will be sent to any address
free, on receipt of request therefor by
letter or postal card, addressed to Dr. R.
V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y. It tells Just
what Dr. Pierce's medicines are made of.
The " Woris of Praise" for the several
ingredients of which Dr. Pierce's medi-
cines are composed, by leaders in all the
several schools of medical practice, and
recommending them for the cure of the
diseases for which the "Golden Medical
Discovery " is advised, should have far
more weight with the sick and afflicted
than any amount of the so-called "testi-
monials " so conspicuously flaunted before
the public by those who are afraid to let
the ingredients of which their medicines
are composed be known. Bear in mind
that the "Golden Medical Discovery" has
THE BAiHJK oT HONESTY on every bottle
wrapper, in a full list of Its ingredients.

stipation, Invigorate the liver and regu-
late stomach and bowels.

trated Common Sense Medical Adviser
