Kabo, Kabo, Kabo—that sounds like an African name. It means a corset "bone that can't be broken~~if it can't be broken, it doesnt stick into you—so it means a "bone" of comfort, not of contention. It means a corset " bone^' that doesn't kink—if it doesn't kink, the corset can't roll up in the middle as corsets are apt to do—so it means a "bone" that stays where you • put it It isn't a "bone" at all, but Kabo, Kabo, Kabo; and Kabo means a corset you •wear a week or two or three, till you make up your mind about it, and then go back to the store and get your money, if you'd rather have money than Kabo. There's a primer on Corsets for you at the store. Cffl0*«e»sOTCo.7cMo»£ro and New Tort. ECHOES JTJROM THE ORIENT A IX line of 's Medicines at Pryor's Drug store. REAL ESTATE.

"Oceultiis." in Kute Fields Washington. In my former paper I spoke of the theory of Ke-incarnation, held by the Theosophista, and the further belief that because of the acts and thoughts of nations and peoples preceding us by thousands of years that we are in a direct ratio aJTected, as by the domination of their acts for good or evil; following this line of thought. Returning here now, for instance, we are moved, without our knowledge, by the impressions made in the Astral Light at the time when the Indians, the Spanish, and the harsh'Puritans lived upon the earth. The-words of the immortal Shakespeare "The evil that men do lives utter them: The good Is oft interred with their bones receive a striking exemplification under this doctrine. For, as the evil thoughts and deeds are the, more material and therefore more firmly imparted into the Astral Light, while the good being spiritual, easily fade out, we are in effect left at the mercy of tbe evil done. And the Adepts assert that Shakespeare was, unconsciously to himself, inspired by one of their own number. I shall refer again to this branch of the subject. The scheme of evolution put forth by these beings and their disciples is so broad, deep, and far reaching as to stagger the ordinary mind. It takes in with ease periods of years running up int > trillions and quadrillions, 'ft claims that mon have been on the earth for millions of years more than science is yet willing -to admit. It is not bound by the narrow scheme of biblicad chronologists, nor startled by the magnificent age of civilization which disappeared long ago. The keepers of this doctrine say that they and their predecessors lived in these olden times, and have preserved not only memory of them, but also complete records. The records, moreover aro not merely on perishable paper and palm leaf, but on imperishable stone. They point to such remains as the statues, 97 feet high, found on Easter Island; to rows of gigantic statues in Asia, that by their varying heights show the gradual diminution of human statue, which kept pace with other degenerations; and to crown all, they say that they possess to-day in the East the immense and well gnarded collection of records of all sorts. Not only are these records said to relate to the physical history of man, but also to his astral and spiritual evolution. Here I can only indicate one ©f their basic doctrines in the scheme of evolution. That ii that 'the evolution of the inner, astral form of man came first in order, and continued for an immense number of years before his physical structure was built up around it. This with other portions of the doctrine, is vital and will aid much in an understanding of the complex question presented to us by the history of the human race, both that which is known, and that which is still resting on conjecture. These records kept by the Adepts and now in possession of their present representatives and successors— Adepts also—relate not only to the birth of planets in this solar system, but also to the evolution and development of man, through the various kingdoms of nature, until he reaches the most perfect condition which can be imagined. The evolution of the human being includes, not only the genisis of his mortal frame, but, as well the history of the inner man, whom they are accustomed to call thj real one. This, then, brings us to a very interesting claim put forward for the Wisdom Religion, that it pretends to throw light not only upon man's emotions and mental faculties, but also upon hi» pre-natal and postmortem states, both of which are of the highest interest and importance. Sueh questions as "Where have I come from?" and "What will be my condition after death?" trouble and confuse the minds of all men, ignorant or cultured. Priests or thinkers, have from time to time, formulated theories, more or less absurd, as to tho»e pre-natal and post-mortem states, while the Science of to-day laughs in derision at the idea of making any inquiry into the matter whatever. Theologians have offered explanations, all of which relate only to what they suppose will happen us after death, leaving entirely out of view and wholly unanswered the natural question. ""What were we before we wore born here?" And, taking; them on their own ground, they are in a most illogical position, became, having onoe postulated immortality for the soul—the real man —they cannot deny immortality in cither direction. If man is immor- tal, that immortality could nerer have had a beginning, or else it would have an end. Hence, their only escape from the dilemma is to declare that each soul is a special creation. But this doctrine of a special creation for each soul when born upon the earth, is not dwelt upon, or expounded by the priests, inasmuch as it is deemed better to keep it discreetly in the background. The Wisdom Religion, on the other hand, remains logical from beginning to end. It dsclares that mnn is a spiritual being, and allows no break in the chain of anything once declared immortal. The Ego of each man is immortal; "always was existent, always will be, and never can be n«ri-existent;" appearing now and again, and reappearing, clothed in bodies on each occasion different, it only appears to be mortal; it always remains the sub-stratum and support for the personality acting upon the stage of life. And in these appearances as mortal, the question mooted above—as the pre-natal and post-mortem states—are of vital interest, because knowledge, or ignorance concerning them alters man's thought and action whila an aetor upon the stage, and it is necessary for him to know the truth in order that he may so live as to aid in the grand upward .sweep of the evolutionary ware. ENGLISH BAKERIES. THEY Ml'KAK FOR TUUHHKLYKH Short Tallin With Cltfucn* on Vari- A Pleasant Method of Preparing: the The result of the inquiries recently made as to the sanitary arrangements connected with the trade of baking is anything but reassuring, Bakeries are said to exist in Manchester where the cleanliness which should obtain in the preparation of fpod is impossible. Some of the bakers complain that, the machinery now used takes "the flavor out of the bread." They prefer the old method of "dancing on the dough." The Lancet commissioner naturally expressed a hope that 'the men washed their feet," and was cheerfully assured that they did after the bread was made, BS otherwise they could not put their boots on again It is desirable that the city axithori- ties should deal with this matter immediately, and see that the staff of life is supplied to the people under eornewhut better conditions than at present. ___ WINKED OUT.

During the thunder storm Friday night there was a brilliant flash of lightning followedjby aheavy roar of thunder and the "winking out" of the electric lights which left the city in total darkness. Investigation disclosed the fact that the electric current had entered the electric light building and burned out ail armature, breaking the current. Hence the collapse. The trouble was ; soon corrected and light once more prevailed over darkness. Strengthening anil ilhcn- matlc Plasters*. Are a revelation to the World, and .are the only Genuine Kheuinatie Plasters. Nine-tenths of all troubles which require the aid of plasters are rheu uiatic in their nature. A change of weather or sudden draft causes a cold which develops into muscular and that into inflammatory rheumatism. And yet there has never been such a thing as a distinctly rheumatic and strengthening plaster, and hundreds have died suddenly where rheumatism has attacked the heart, whose lives micht have been saved had this plaster been applied in season. They are constructed on purely scientific principals and are purely vegetable. Prepared by Rheumatic Syrup Co., Jackson, Mich. For sale by B.

McMillen'g Ko. 307 Market street. maySdSt ANAGERPhilDues- ner, Western Union Telegraph office.— "A great many telegraph operators are afflicted with a disease which is ecarcely known in any other profession. It is known as telegraphers paralysis. After a man has been in the telegraph business for a good many years he will wake up some day to the fact that he is losing control over the muscles of his forearm. He is unable to form the dots and dashes as h^ wishes, perhaps he wants to makes the letter H, which consists of four dots, he attempts it, and instead of stopping at four dots, as he desires, he finds that ne strings the latter out to half a dozen or more. Then he realizes tbat he has telegraphers paralysis. When I was a younger man than I am now I was working in Indianapolis. During a big election rush I was called upon to send to Chicago nearly twelve hours without rest. My arm felt numb for several days after that, and I am pretty certain that I saved myself from telegraphers paralysis by taking a good long rest. When an operator is once paralyzed it is all day with him as far as "sending" is concerned, though it doesn't interfere with his receiving in the least. Some men learn to send with the other hand, but they can seldom learn to transmit as good Morse as they could originally. I have never heard of a case of paralysis being completely cured, though a treatment of Hypho-phospates and milk is recommended by eminent specialists as affording more relief than any other that ever came under my notice. John Coulson, Druggist—"It may appear strange, but men buy more perfume than the ladies. Perhaps it is because they feel that they need something to drown the scent of tobacco on their garments. Anyway it is a fact that seventy-five per cent, of the perfumery that I send out is purchased by the sterner sex. "Jockey Club," "White Rose," "Frangipani," and "Ylang ylang," are the most in demand. Frangipani is the highest in price and perhaps excepting musk is the most pungent and lasting. Musk is used comparatively little but occasionally it is called for. Musk has recently doubled in price because of the scarcity of the musk deer from which it is obtained. Nearly every other perfume oan be manufactured by compounding other odora but musk cannot be counterfeited in that way. Originally ambergris, which is a material obtained from the stomach of the sperm whale, after putrefaction has set in, was used as the basis of all perfumes. But of late years they are manufactured from pomades extracted from flowers. No pomades are made in the United States, all iare manufactured in France, Italy and Spain where flowers are grown for this purpose. Few powder perfumes are called for except about the holidays when they are largely used by the ladies in making satchet bags, handkerchief cases and other Christmas gifts. W. T. Grille, Bookieller—"The taste for high-class literature appears to be greatly on-the increase in Logansport. -By high-class I mean the monthly periodicals, such as The Century, Scribners, Harpers, and publications of that sort. My orders for these, and other publications of equal rank, are constantly increasing. It has been but a short time since I could order two or three extra copies of each and would then consider myself fortunate to dispose of all of them. But at present I have regular subscribers for forty copies each of Scribners, The Century, Harpers, the Lady's Home Journal, and am frequently compelled to order two or three supplies of extras during tly. month to supply the transient demand. Then of the weekly story papers we sell a great many. We have a number of customers who can scarcely wait from one week until the next to receive their "Saturday Night," New York Ledger, Fireside Companion, and other popular story papers, but the main demand is for the higher,so)id grades of literature. I would not undertake to say how many copies of Bellamy's Looking Backward have gone out over my counter. We keep it in stock constantly and there is scarcely a day that it is not called for. This, I think, is greatly due to the fact that it ia one of the best advertised books that has been in the book market for years. Dickens,Hawthorne, Bulwer,Scott, Goldsmith and E. P. Roe's works are always in demand. It seems as soon as one generation bag read and enjoyed them another springs up and takes their place. Mrs. Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin is in good de- mand, also. Of the children's books Little Lord Fauntleroy had an almost unprecedented sale and Mrs. Burnette's new book, Little Saint Elizabeth, promises to equal it. Henry Tousley.~"We have a good deal of trouble in keeping track of cars sometimes. All our agents at telegraph stations have instructions to report by telegraph every day at 3 o'clock the number and initials of all cars whether loaded or empty, how long on hand and when they will go forward. Also what cars are needed for loading and what kind But some times a car will stop at some station where there is no agent or telegraph station and then we lose track of it; sometimes a oar will disappear for a week and then will bob up again." C. H. Hartley, the man who has been plunging in wheat in Chicago this Spring, and who is reported to have made $00,000 off an original capital of $50, used to be a -very large shipper of grain from Remington, en the State Line division. We bad some difficulty in keeping him supplied with oars and were frequently behind on his orders. He would come in to the superintendent's office about three times a week and make a behemothioal kick for cars. He got tired of this and finally said: "I'm getting weary of coining up here every few days and making a talk for cars so I'll just leave you this, put it on your desk so every time you look up you'll see it, and every time you see it just consider I'm here and want cars," and he pulled out a big photograph of himself holding a card on which was written "say I "want 100 cars and I want 'em bad." A Righteous Kick. The report by tbe citizens which appeared in the Pharos of Wednesday evening that "a certain man was in the habit of driving their cows over the line into Noble township and turn them over into the supervisor's hands" is a lie of tbe deepest dye, if it (the report) has reference to me. The "fifty cows taken up yesterday" is a lie-devils own make. I sent to the supervisor thirteen head of cows on "yesterday," that were on the public highway, along my fence in Noble township, Cass county, Ind., which statement can be proven by nine witnesses. I hope that the West Side citizens, who reported those lies will tell what that "man's" name is who is in the babit of driving their cows over the line into Noble township; also give their name through the paper who drove those cows over the line so they could get into my crops from one to three times a day last fall; which they did until I prevented it by law. The supervisor will have yonr cows in the pond every few days, if you do not keep them out of Noble township. WM. STOUT. IN MEMOBIAM.
