and the ceiling sheathed with brown-
grained pine. Thus begins the de-
scription of an Alabama cross-roads
Counters run down the two long
sides of the room and the walls are cov-
ered with shelve filled to the ceiling.

with goods and the great floor space
is filled with mors goods piled upon

November is the busiest month but
the rush keeps up with little inter-

The sales of a store like the one I
have described will run from $50000
to $100000 a year and in this one
town of not more than 1000 inhabit-
ants there are six such stores.
Fayette though 80 miles west of
Birmingham on the line of the rail-
road ' which connects Birmingham
with the west is the busiest town
between Eirmingfiam and Columbus
Miss. ' Ten thousand bales of cotton
are marketed here every year and the
trade which this represents is drawn
from a widely surrounding country.
An Alabama country store in cot-
ton market time boasts of its ability
to meet any demand upon its re-
sources. As one man here told me:
"We can furnish anything from a
needle to a to-horse lumber wagon."
I started 01ft to make a brief in-
ventory. . A row of cook stoves stood
nearest tbe door and' on them a pile
of bright-colored rugs a baby car-
riage and a boy's toy wagon.
Beside a group of eening machines
was a long table heaped with un-
bleached sheetings. Under the table
was a pile of rough andirons for this

A showcase near was filled with
women's trimmed hats. Just beyond
were a stack of brooms 50 kegs of
nails some chamber sets against
which leaned a dozen cross-cut saws
and a pile of boxes of tobacco nnd
near by were linen collars of good
style and excellent linen handker-
chiefs tit reasonable prices.
Placed on the 'lour near the door
a big empty 'box perhaps two feet
high aod with an old blanket thrbwn
in it. attracted my attention.
While I was wondering why it had
been left there where every inch of
space seemed to be utilized a family
party came into the store one of a
dozen such in town at that time for in
cotton market season the women and
children come to town almost as sure-
ly as the men.
The woman of this party carried a
baby about a year old. Evidently she
did not propose to be bothered by the
child while she was doing her yeir's
shopping for aha promptly deposited

ing it a big red apple to play with j
left it there to take care of Itself while !
she accompanied her husband about 1
the store. ;
I was interested in noting the re-
suits of an investigation as to tbe
places where the goods sold in this
southern store are manufactured.
I found that the stoves were cast
in Memphis; the soap of which tae
were f'om 50 to 100 boxes piled one
on top of another was made in Nash-
ville; the unblesched cotton was made
in Anniston Ala. and a considerable
quantity of the cHeap cotton dress

loosa in the same state.
The hearts of the nail kejjt showed
thst their contents were made in Ash-
land. Tbe rolled oats were milled and
packed at Birmingham. The boots and
shoes were manufactured in Et. Louis.
Atlanta and Nashville; the furniture j
in Memphis and the tinware in Mem- j

The attacks of the lesse.- enruivora
smaller in proportion to man nre fre-
quently very painful but matters are
' so ordered that the bite of a dog or a
j ferret is usually more painful than
the injuries inflicted by the jaws of a
lion. The instances quoted are very
numerous and striking and probably
grouped according to locality or the
species of the attacking beast. In
Komaliland the experiences of the bit-
ten are supplemented by Capt. Abud
the resident at Herbera who has had
a long experience of cases English and
native as most of the former unless
killed outright which very seldom
happens are brought to Berbera.
lie states that "the view that no
actual pain is suffered at the time
: seems almost universal. In most cases
it would- seem that there was no
i knowledge of the actual contact even
I in the first rush of a lion much less
of any pain experienced from tooh
1 wounds." This was the view not only
ot the English but of natives. In one
or two cases where consciousness was
entirely lost the person "came ' to"
while the lion was still standing over
him a period of complete anesthesia
and unconsciousness having in-ter-veneR
But more commonly those
who have been attacked and have re-
covered are conscious all the time
and if they suffer at all do not feel
acute pain. This may be accounted
foi partly by the shock given by the
charge which forms the usual prelim-
inary to being wounded. A lion comes
at the enemy at full speed galloping
low and dashes a man standing up-
right to the ground by the full im-
pact of its body. Maj. Inverarley.
states that "thy claws and teeth' en-
tering the flesh do not hurt so much
as you would think" but that the
squeeze given by the jaws on the bone
is really painful. When knocked over
he was still keenly conscious and felt
none of the dreamy sensation experi-
encey by Livingstone.
Maj. Swaine struck down by a lion-
ess: going at full gallop was uncon-
scious for some minutes and did riot
know what had happened till he found
himself standing up after the ' acci-
dent. "I . felt no pain" "he writes
"not I believe owing' to any special
interposition of Providence but sim-
ply that the shock and Jc33 of blood
made me incapable of feeling it. There
was.no pain for a few days till it was
brought on by the -swelling of my arm
011 the 12 daysV ride to the coast."
Capt. Noyes attacked in the same dis-
trict by n lion in 1S95 was charged
down and bitten until the creature left
him-probably when attacked by his (
sernnts. His hand was badly bitten
but he "was not conscious of any feel-
ing of fear or any pain whatever
probably because there was no time
but he felt exactly as if he had been
bowled over in a football match and
nothing more." A far worse accident
was that which befell Lieut. Vandezee
in the same year near Beira. ' The lion
charged him down in the usual wav
and mangled bis thighs and fractured
one of -Us arms. "During the time the
attack u me by the lion was in prog-
ress" he writes. "I felt no pain what-
ever ul'houjrb there was a ' distinct
feelin? of being- bitten that is I was
perfectly conscious independently of
sreing the performance that the lion
was gnaw ing at me but there was no
"I may mention that while mv
thighs '.er being gnawed I took two
curtridges onfc of the breast pocket of
my shirt and threw them to the Kaffir
who was hovering a few- yards nway
telling him to load my rifle and im-
mediately the lion died and rolled off
me I scrambled up and took a loaded
rifle nnd fired at the rorcass." Lon-
