with but one persou besides myself, a
woman. 1 am an Inveterate smoker,

As I began to puff composedly 1 drew
from my pocket a morning paper and
commenced to read.

the lady remarked. "Traveling is dull
and we women have no such way or

I lowered my paper and for the first
ton took a look at her. She was pass

and very well dressed. Since she bad

CANT BE SEPARATED.
Some Astoria People Have Learned
How to Get Rid of Both.
Backache and kidney ache are twin
You can't separate them.
And you can't get rid of the back
ache until you cure the kidney ache.
If the kidneys are well and strong,
the rest of the system is pretty sure
to be in vigorous health.
Doan's Kidney Fills make strong,
H. J. Young, of 2901 Morrison
street, Portland, Ore., says: "I have
had no occasion to use any kidney
medicine since 1903, and that is the
very reason why I can recommend
Doan's Kidney Pills so strongly.
This remedy relieved me at that time
of an annoying attack of kidney com
plaint which had clung to me for quite
a while, and had become aggravated
by a cold which settled in my back.
The relief was speedy and lasting,
and not the slightest trace of a recur
rence has appeared during the three
years that have elapsed. I am con
vinced that this is good proof of the
value of Doan's Kidney Pills."

A BOWL OF BITTER TEA.
Himalayan Hospitality In a Snow
In spite of a poverty which limits
their good intentions the inhabitants
of central and sooth central Asia dis
play a charming hospitality. Such, at
least, Is the impression gained from
Mr. Ellsworth Huntington's book, "The
Pulse of Asia." .
At Uatayan, a village in the prov
Ince of La dakb, the habitable portion
of the upper Indus valley, a friendly
villager Invited Mr. Huntington to dive
down from the crust which covered
eight or ten feet of snow Into a one
story house. This was at an elevation
of 10,500 feet
Although It was April 11, the snow.
even on a level, was higher than the
tops of the houses. Where it had been
shoveled off the flat roofs it formed

In my eyes and well, it is not the wind and making them the favorite
same by any means.'
To tell the truth, this was but an ex
cuse. I had come to suspect the lady
to be an adventuress and did not look
with complacency upon being shut up
alone with her. She seemed to discern
from my refusal to sit by her that I
had my suspicions and. Instead of at
tempting to allay them, began to work
upon my fears. ,! ,,- -
"A man who scorns a lady's ad
vances should be made to pay for bis
rudeness," she said sharply.
I considered this a threat and to dis
play an unconcern I aid not feel I re
sumed my paper. Indeed, there was
nothing else for me to do. I felt sure
that the woman would spring a trap
sitting room at that season and even
In winter, for the sunshine is always
warm in that dry, clondless climate.
When the little black cows bad been
driven and pulled out of the way Mr.
Huntington descended to an almost
closed shed used for the two or three
hardy sheep and goats and was usher
ed, stooping Into a dark stable con
taining a little pony, shaggy, like all
the animals. Bending low once more,
be climbed over a high sill and was in
the warm, close family living room.
Light and air came In through a bole
In the roof a foot square surmounted
by a chimney pot a foot high made of
three Btones set up to "keep out the
snow. A few bits of ragged cloth on
en me for the purpose of extorting the mud floor for sleeping purposes, a
blackmail, and I saw before me a seri
ous complication, a possible arrest and
Imprisonment But the more inward
trepidation I felt the more outward
coolness I showed. I concentrated my
attention upon maintaining the ash on
the end of my cigar. Every time I re
moved the cigar from between my lips
and put It back I did so with the ut
most care. Presently the woman took
out her watch and looked at it
"We will reach the station at N. in
five minutes," she said. "I need 500
francs. Choose between giving them
to me or an arrest on a charge of as
aault when the train stops."
Had she been willing to settle for a
aapoleon I would not have yielded. 1
consider it demeaning in any man to
pay blackmail. It may or may not
be common sense, but I do not believe
In making a beginning in tbat direc
tion. I gave the woman no reply, but
continued to appear Interested in keep
ing the ash on tbe end of my cigar.
Finally tbe bouses by the way grew
thicker, and the train slowed down.
,TU settle for 1,000 francs," said the
' woman. "In one minute more my
price will be 1,500." At the same time
be began to pull her apparel awry to
Indicate that she bad been tbrongb a
I smoked on.
In another minute tbe train pulled up
at the station. Tbe woman put her
head out of the window and shrieked
for the guard. He came, followed by
officials and curious people, and drew
open tbe door.
"This brute has assaulted me," said
the woman. "Arrest him."
The guard and his followers all lev
led their eyes at me. Taking what
little remained of my cigar from my
mouth, I extended it slowly toward
the crowd on the platform.
, i"Could a man," I said, "interfere
with any one and keep an ash like tbat
n the end of a cigar?"
As I spoke the woman, upon whom
fashed the reverse of the situation she
had planned, brushed against me,
lightly shaking me. The ash fell on
the car floor. 1 r-, V V s " '
; There was a shout of derisive laugh

half dozen metal utensils and an iron
pot full of Himalayan tea, kept warm
over some embers, comprised all the
visible equipment for housekeeping.
After the host had persuaded Mr.
Huntington to take a seat on the floor
a half palsied old woman Insisted upon
ladling out for him a bowl of tea. It
was surprisingly good In view of tbe
fact that a poor grade of tea leaves
had been steeped half an hour or more
with milk, butter, salt and soda. In
richer bouses Mr. Huntington was
often served with tea which bad been

ANY ONE CAN HYPNOTIZE
But It Cannot Bs Accomplished With
Of course, whoever wants to hypno
tise In fact no one but a physician
ought to do it-must learn the tech
nique and apply It patiently and skill
fully. And certainly there are Individ
ual differences. Not every one can be
deeply hypnotized. With not a few
the Inhibition goes no farther than
the Inability to open the eyes, while
only one out of four enters Into strong
hypnotic hallucinations. Further, not
every one Is well prepared to awaken
that confidence which Is essential and
that feeling of repose which guides one
over to the dreamy state. The look,
the voice, the gestures, the phrases, tbe
behavior, of certain persons make them
poor bypnotizers, however well they
may understand tbe tricks. But In
principle everybody can hypnotize and
can be hypnotized, Just as In principle
everybody can love and can be loved,
and no special mysterlons power Is
needed to fall In love or to awaken
Yet while thus every one can exert
hypnotic Influence, no one can do It by
a mere glance. All the stories of a se
cret Influence by which one man's
will gets bold of another man's mind
are remains of tbe mermerle theories
of the past Today we know that ev
erything depends upon the attention
and imagination of tbe hypnotized and
tnat no mysterious fluid can flow over
from tbe mind of the hypnotist to the
mind of the subject The old mystical
view of unscientific superstition reach
ed Its climax In the prevalent belief
tbat a man could exert secret Influence
from a distance without the victim's
knowledge(of tbe source of the uncan
ny distortion of bis mind. According
this belief, every heinous crime
might be committed under tbat cover.
Tbe distant bypnotlzer could inflict
pain and suffering on his enemy and
could intense tbe Innocent as Instru
