"John’’ Pleads Guilty to Having Stolen
Sweets and Is Sentenced to Three
Months’ Confinement In
The following strange incident Is re-
lated by Capt. George A. Briggs and
occurred during Ills stay on the west
coast of Africa about ten years ago.
A chimpanzee named John, who was
owned by a high official, one day broke
from his chain and, strolling uncon-
cernedly down the main thoroughfare,
scattered the crowds before him. A
native woman who was vending dain-
ties dropped her tray and even for-
getting her small child fled with the
The chimpanzee soon spied the tray
of dainties and devoured them In a
most convincing manner. The child,
seeing all the sweets disappear, at-
tacked the chimpanzee by the tail, but
a bite from the brute sent the child
yelling at the top of his lung power.
This so infuriated the natives that
they made a combined attack on John
and hts lease of life would have been
cut short had not his owner appeared.
He faced the crowd and assured them
that every man would be tendered his
due. For a similar offense he in-
quired whether a man would not have
to stand his trial in court.
“Yah! Yah!” was the shout.
"Then,” said John’s owner, “let the
woman appear in court tomorrow with
the child and all the witnesses and
I promise you John will be there like
a man to stand trial and take what-
ever punishment may be doled out to
The next morning the court was
crowded when John appeared, chained
and carried by several policemen. He
was placed In the dock and the charge
of larceny and assault was read to
His master turned to him and, ask-
ing him if he had any defense to of-
fer, was answered by the usual grunts
of delight that John indulged In when-
ever his master greeted him.
The master then informed the judge
that John had pleaded guilty and had
no defense to offer. The judge, after
due deliberation, sentenced the brute
to three months and he was led away
to prison, where he served his sen-

I was completely run down. On ad-
vice I took Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vege-

more than two years and I have not

Backache is a symptom of organic
weakness or derangement. If you
have backache don’t neglect it. To
get permanent relielf you must reach
the root of the trouble. Nothing we
know of will do this so surely as Lydia
L. Pinkham’s Compound.

THE LINIMENT FOR
ALL ACHES AND PAINS
The British navy lias just taken a
jtep unprecedented In Its history. Tha
two cruisers Rainbow and Niobe ara
to be teetotal men o’ war, contrary
to all marine traditions. Grog has al-
ways been a part of the standard ra-
tion, being a concoction of one part
rum to three parts water; but no such
luxury Is to be permitted on the two
ships above mentioned. In the old
days—in fact down to 1830—the daily
allowance to each man was a gallon
of ale and a half pint ot rum. The
quantity has been greatly modified
but it certainly never entered anv
tar’s head that the time was comln:
for total abstinence.
