ale punishments, says the New York
Press. 'For some reason possibly for
economy of space, for Delaware Is a small
state the whipping-post and pillory at
Newcastle are comblhed, whereas in the
"good old times" they used to be sep
Offenders In Delaware caimot be sen
tenced to more than one hour In the pil
lory, or to receive more than 60 lashes.
Wlfebeating Is one of the crimes for
which flogging is administered in that
state, and It is thought to work so well
as a deterrent that every once in a while
a bill Is Introduced into the legislature
of some other state to make public whip
ping the penalty for whipping one's wife.
Though such a measure has been strongly
advocated. Northern States at least have
been loth to re-establish a punishment
which they abolished so many years ago.
It Is said by the advocates of flogging
that the record of Delaware shows that no
punishment will so well fit certain crimes
as flogging. A class of men who laugh at
imprisonment, even if they do not actual
ly court It, shrln.k from a flogging not
from the disgrace of It so much- as from
the physical pain which attaches.
If your thorough "rounder" and "tough"
dislikes any one thing more than another,
It Is physical pain. That appeals to him
when nothing else can, and these aro
generally the ones who take the most
del.ight in inflicting physical pain on oth
ers weaker than themselves the beaters
of women and the torturers of animals.
In the early days of the country flog
ging and the pillory were sometimes de
creed for people of importance as well as
for those who held converse with royster
lng Morton of Merry Mount, or smiled In
meeting on, a Sabbath day. New Eng
landers who held religious views at vari
ance with those of the authorities, or
advanced new and strange doctrines as to
government, had the stocks, the pillory
and the whipping-post allotted to them
with great liberality. "Women as well as
men were sometimes condemned to the
whipping-post in those days.
One curious case on record of a promi
nent citizen being sentenced to the whipping-post
is that of John Gorton, ap romi
nent colonist In Newport. One Sunday
a servant maid of his was seen to smie
in church. She was haled before the Jus
tices to answer for her crime. Gorton re
fused to let her answer the summons,
but appeared in her stead.
He was a hot-tempered fellow, and when
after some words he was asked how he
dared to talk so to the Justices, he threw
down his glove and exclaimed, "Just
asses!" For this he was condemned to
be whipped soundly by the public hang
man, hut he escaped from the colony and
went to "Warwick, up the bay. From
thero he returned to England, declaring
that he "found the tyranny of the Lord's
brethren in New England more Intolerable
than the Lord Bishops In old England."
Flogging used to be a favorite punish
ment in the Navy, and was not unknown
In the Army. A sailor sometimes was
sentenced to be "flogged through the
fleet." That meant that after being
flogged In a boat alongside his own ship
he would be rowed to each ship of the
fleet in turn and receive some moro lash
ing. A well-known case of flogging
through the -fleet occurred in 1S11, when
for the alleged theft of a handkerchief
a sailor was sentenced to receive 300
lashes and to bo Imprisoned one year.
"When he had received 220 strokes with
the "cat" the surgeon declared that na
ture could endure no more, and he was
taken back to his ship and. his wounds
dressed. 'When his back was partly
healed he received tho remaining 80
Both Jn the American and British Na
vies of those days flogging was of almost
daily occurrence. In the merchant serv
ice we still hear occasionally of a man,
being "rope's-ended." but not for some
years now has an authentic case been re
ported of a man on an American mer
chant ship being formally "sized up" and
flogged. A man is "sized up" when he
is bound by his ankles and wrists to a
grating or some other convenient place,
where his legs and arms are spread apart
and his back bared. Then the man who is
to do the flogging takes a "cat" and lays
on. A cat, or "cat-o'-nlne-talls," Is a
stranded rope attached to a convenient
handle, and each blow from it raises
several welts on the victim's back.
One old story of the flogging days In
the Navy is of two sailors, a father and
a son, being triced up and flogged at the
same time alongside of each other, "When
the father was cut down he caught the
man who was wielding the cat around
the waist and toppled him over into the
sea. The two men went down locked In.
each other's arms, and both were
In the "War of 1S12 a law was -passed
providing that no commander In the
American Navy should give more than
12 lashes for any offense. This law was
sometimes violated, but after 1812 there
was a steady Improvement In the treat
ment of sailors on board men-of-war, at
least In the American service.
It would be Interesting to know just
what effect the whlpplng-post has upon
the men who administer the flogging for
and the whipping-post were ordinary
means of punishment, a man placed In
the pillory sometimes lost his life. If he
was a person accused of some particular
ly unpopular crime, or was unpopular
himself, the populace would pelt him with
stones an,d other missiles until he died.
A man placed in the stocks also would
be subject to the jeers and the peltlngs
of the multitude. But the man in the
stocks seldom suffered much harm. He
was generally a bibulous offender, or one
Inclined to cast sheeps' eyes at tho maid
ensa man possessed of amiable weak
nesses and sitting on the stool of repent
ance therefor. So the boys jeered him,
and possibly threw at him a cabbage or
a turnip, but it was seldom he suffered
The stocks also were in more general
use in the country towns, and were espe
cially well adapted for bucolic offenders,
while the pillory was set up in those parts
of cities where the hardest characters In
town lived or collected together, and the
man placed therein was generally a tough
citizen, and if he was killed by tho mis
Biles fired at him by the populace the
world lost nothing of value. In London
In the last century men were killed in
this manner while exposed in tho pillory
in -the public streets.
The pillory is an upright beam of wood
crossed by another beam at its top. The
second beam is split lengthwise, and
places hollowed out, one in the center,
about as big around as the neck of an
ordinary man, and others on either 3ize
as large as the ordinary man's wrist. A
hinge holds together the two parts of
the split beam at one end, and there Is
a staple and hasp with a strong lock
at the other. This arrangement is raised
high on a platform, so that the culprit
will be a noticeable object when he Is in
"When the split beam is thrown open,
the condemned one places his neck in the
large place hollowed out for It, his hands
in the other rounded-out places, and then
the beam is swung back and he is locked
iri. It is an uncomfortable position, and
a most undignified one. At first the po
sition is not painful, but it soon becomes
so on account of the Inability of the
prisoner to straighten out his spine. If
at the post below him another victim
Is writhing and howling under the lash,
ihe man in, the pillory may forget his
own sufferings partly; but, however much
the punishment may be mitigated, It is
one which is much dreaded by the prisoners.
KEEP 'SERVANTS AMUSED.
Another Possible Solution Offered
In the Servnnt Question.
New Orleans Times-Democrat.
Tho servant problem is engaging the
tongues and tempers of most of the
housekeepers throughout the land, espe
cially those who are trying to rest from
such toll in country places during the
warm season. Servants may do their
work in one place as well as another, but
unless agreeable prospects enliven them
meanwhile for the spending of their lei
sure and their wages they will become
"dissatisfied and languid. Keeping the
temperament of the kitchen clement Is no
small undertaking, and is not one to be
despised, for the whole house Is radiated
with the result.
At Narragansett Pier this Summer resi
dents of the cottages have found great
difficulty in retaining servants for more
than a few weeks. Dally service is com
mendable; recreation is indispensable.
Once there they looked about for amuse
ments, and not finding them, would give
sudden notice to leave. It is now under
serious advisement among householders

she was drawing nearly 14 feet of water,

could not have sailed. It was pointed out
to Mr. Tongue how the bar changes at
different times of the year, diverging as
much as two miles.
As only small coasting vessels can cross
the bar, and that only in fine weather,
the Industries of Tillamook are nanai
capped, especially the saw mills, it being
a difficult matter to get steamers and
lumber schooners to carry the lumber
to market; consequently there is very
little lumber manufactured in Tillamook
this year. The industry Is dull on ac
count of obstacles to shipping. Dairying,
which Is an exceedingly profitable indus

Surgical operations and flesh destroying plasters are useless, painfnl and dangerous, and besides, never-cure Cancer.
No matter how often a cancerous sore is removed, another comes at or near the same point, and always in a worse form.
Does not this prove conclusively that Cancer is a blood disease, and that it is folly to attempt to cure this deep-seated, dangerous
blood trouble by cutting or burning out the sore, which, after al, is only an outward sign of the disease a place of exit for
the poison ?
Cancer runs in families through many generations, and those whose ancestors have been afflicted with it are liable at anj
time to be stricken with the deadly malady.
Only Blood Diseases can k Transmitted from One feneration to Another
further proof that Cancer is a disease of the blood.
To cure a blood disease like this you must cure the entire blood system remove every trace of the poison. Nothing cures
Cancer effectually and permanently but S. S. S-
S. S. S. enters the circulation, searches out and removes all taint, and stops the formation of cancerous cells. No mere tonic
or ordinary blood medicine can do this. S. S. S. goes down to the very roots of the disease, and forces out the deadly poison,,
allowing the sore to heal naturally and permanently. S. S. S. at the same time purifies the blood and builds up the general health.
A little pimple, a hannlessuooking wart or mole, a lump in the breast, a cut or bruise that refuses t&
heal under ordinary treatment, should all be looked upon with suspicion, as this is often the beginning- of
a bad form of cancer.
Mrs. Sarah M. Keesline, 941 Windsor Ave.. Bristol, Tenn., writes : "I
am, 41 years old, and for three years had suffered with a severe form of
Cancer on my jaw, which the doctors in this dty said was incurable, and
that I could not live more than six months. 3 accepted their statement aa
true, and had given, up all hope of erer being well again, when my drug
gist, knowing of my condition, recommended S. S. S. After taking a few
bottles the sore began to heal, much to the surprise of th physicians, and
in a short time made a complete care. I hae rained in flesh," ray appetite
is splendid, sleep is refreshing in fact, atnnjoying perfect health."'
