After going to live 1th her daughter she became entirely 'helpless and could not even raise her . arms to cover herself at night. The Interesting part of the story follows in her own words: "I Was urged -%p try Dr. Williams' l?lttk Pills for Pale People and at last >,- dirt so." In three days after I commenced taking Pink Pills I could sit up » and dress myself, and after using them • ,,'eiic weeks I went home and commenced working.

Worshipers at the United Brethren church in Bollgrove, near Lebanofa, Pa., were startled by the -report of a pistol. Two disorderly . young men were examining it in church,' when it was discharged, and one of them was shot in the arm. Miss Morrison, the San Francisco girl who was recently graduated from the medical department of the university of California with the highest honors of the class,' had the pleasure of receiving the ringing applause from the men she had defeated when her success was announced, There ara fifty lobster smacks plying along the coast of M^ine, and. thirty-seven of this, fleet' flnd'a mar-* ,ltet for their lobsters in Portland, It r - is'estimated that they landed in Port'"land during the last twelve months 4, OOP, 000 lobsters, for which the deal- 'prs paid hot less than $320,000. , , .

Thtfee fengllshtnen attempt* ed to reach the source of the stream? where the mine is reported to be, hut had to abandon 'the idea for various reasons. At starting they had to take a narrow path that had' been made by the "cardotnom" gatherers. After keeping on this path two days they reached a pool of water. Hero their guide took them aside and whispered to them not to talk of tigers, as the forest in that part was infested with them, and that they Would surely visit the camn if they only mentioned the name. Promising to be discreet, they went down to examine the pool, and found the whole place actually trampled down by wild boars, with a few tiger footprints. Here they rested for the night and next day proceeded on their journey. If the footprints around the pool -led them to believe their guide's reports ol wild animals they were now perfectly convinced, for on either side of the path they saw the destruction worked by wild elephants. A little further on they came to a spot Where the mammoths had 'rested for the night. That evening,they found that one of the carriers who had charge of the provisions had taken to Ma heels. As they had no cooking utensils they were compelled to cook their rice in a tobacco tin, and along with a steak of civet cat (Meo-pa) managed to - make a dinner. At this spot the guide informed thenvit was impossible to go on unless they walked along the stream bare;footed. After walking in this manner for about five hours they came to the falls. Here they had to climb up rocks thirty to forty feet high by means of -the roots of trees growing through the fissures, the guide pointing them out places -where gold 'had been found. After climbing up higher they came to the junction of two streams, and the guide now told them that he did not know the road further -up and that he was afraid. One of the warty got dysentery here, and they then determined to hurry back, especially as they had only rice with them and riofr even a bamb,oo to cook it. in.

One ABhUr 1 & Viney, in a letter to,the London Times, vouches for'the story., $ear whet*e Mr. Viney lives at Ceres, Cape Colony, there is an 09* ttich farm run by a Mr. Mallerby. One day Mf. Mallerby, While o,Ut walking, chanced upon a large black snake i Usually these snakes ar*e very swift and difficult to catch, but this particular reptile moved sluggishly away when the ostrich farmei* approached. It was an easy matter for Mr, Malle'r- by to kill tho reptile with a stick which he carried. Then he noticed that the shake was very fat; quite swollen, in fact, and heavy beyond what was to be expected from its size. He took it home and then cut it open. Inside was a yellow snake almost as large as the black snake. The yellow shake faced the black snake's tail. This was a surprise, but more was to follow. Tho yellow snake al&o looked bloated. So Mr. Mallerby cut open the yollow snake Inside.he'found another.blacksnako, almost as big as tho yellow snake. Having gone so far in the "dissection business, the experimenter proceeded to lay open the third layer of serpent, hoping to turn out a blue or crimson reptile by way of variety.' Instead, lie found a hunch of eggs. Egg after egg he took Out and laid beside the remains of the two blacksnakos and the yellow snake. But his scientific thirst for exploration was not yet slaked, and he proceeded to puncture an egg. Out popped a small blacksnake. He tried another egg, and another just like it. Then he went to work with a will, and when ho had finished the job he found himself responsible for the production of thirty minute crawlers, whereas ho could credit himself with the destruction of only one. At last accounts tho thirty 'were,still under his care. , From these data he has figured out the story of the thirty-three snakes. Evidently the eggs belonged to tho smaller blacksnake and perhaps she wasn't very lively, for when a 'largo yellow snake' came creeping along behind her she couldn't hustle fast enough to escape, and she underwent the presumably unpleasant sensation of being swallowed tail first. Now the yellow-snake was rather sleepy after its square meal and drowsed off. It hadn'fc been sleeping very long when a bigger blacksuake came along. This Mr. Mallerby knows, because the acids in a snake's stomach are very powerful, and had the smaller blacksnake been long in the yellow-snake's interior it would have been eaten by the acids, whereas it was hardly affected at all when taken out, although it was dead- The blacksnake then seeing a yellow-snake of just the right size asleep in the sun, seized it by the head and swallowed it. This was undoubtedly cannibalism, but then the blacksnake didn't know that in taking the yellow- snake it was also eating one of its own family. It was poetic justice,too, and the avenger was peacefully enjoying the rest of 'the well fed when Mr. Mallerby came along and killed it. The death must have followed close on the meal, for the internal acids of, the outside blacksnake had not acted on 1 the yellow-snake any, more than the internal acids of the yellow-snake had acted on tho insido- blacksnake. As for the eggs, they weren't harmed at all. Afterward Mr. Mall&rby was sorry he didn't know all this before ho killed the outside serpent. Certain interesting questions that will never be answered now suggest themselves to him. Supposing the eggs had hatched inside the three layers of snake (thoy were evidently just ready to hatch out serpents), what would have become of them? Supposing •their mother, the bl'aoksnake, and their fogter father, the yejlowsnake, who had provided'a home for them, had both been digested by 'their-,. outside parent, the big bla.ok-sriak§, and they hjE$ remained still in ^he, egg, what wquid have become, of t them, then? The outside blaoksnake w#s- a jnajo, Wouldn't it be va^hev too much, even in these days of feinale'preponderance, to expect'a. male {blacksnake to Jay thirty eggs tha,t fhaj^.poine into its possession purely by a,QC$eirf? Also, if }t did go far forget its rights as a mansnake, what relation would it be to the offspring? Father-' OP mother op both? 5 And where would the yellow snake and the original blaoksnake be. in tlue inixed-up relationship? Mr, Mallei'by would like eoroe' sn»ka ex» jierj, who. also knows something about genealogy, to C0t»e forward aM en* " li -- t -- him on these points, ifeSS kte,y»ii |' ; v?P |w^'^ l iW mt i v^mi '•-> n'-m \ ;:?%m ',' '••>*%$& ^•v:-CT Bard to Keep Straight.
