the tired out nervous system to a healthy
vigor is Electric Bitters. This. medicine

-to the nerve centres in the stomach,
gently stimulates the Liver and Kidneys,

impurities in the blood. ElectricBit

A FUNERAL CUSTOM.
The Troubles of a V.onian in a Wild
"On my first circuit . I had a' lesspn
in human nature tbat I have never for
gotten," said a Methodist minister to
a Washington Star reporter.
"The circuit was in-the i:ionrslr."ns of
West Virginia, and among1 tho iu; iv.bcra
of my church, was a widow, who, i:i ad
dition to the loss of her husband, had
suffered final earthly parting with foun
of her children, leaving1 but two, a girl
and a boy nearly grown.
"Ona night I was asked to hasten to
her cabin, which I did, reaching then
just in. time to be with her son when he
died f".xm the effects of an accident.
"The mother, although deeply
grieved, acted more calmly than I
pected, and early in the morning I went
home, returning in the afternoon. I
found the widow in the paroxysm of
tears. I tried to comfort her with the
usual Christian consolation. Finally
she quieted, down enough to say :
" "Tnin't only thet he died. I know
he's a heap better off.
"'What is it, then?'
" 'We hain't hev no funeral.'
" 'No funeral ?'
" 'No. Sal's jess' got back from th"
sto', an Dot a ya'd o' black hev they got

OLD-TIME SOUTHERN SPORT.
Members oJ Hunting Clubs on Whom Big-
Fines Were Imponcd.
Among the sports of olden times ihe
hunting- clubs were prdminent'' every
where, says the Atlanta Constitution.
In Camden county one of the mos, fa
mous of clubhouses in this country was
built at Hear Ilammock and kept under
the supervision of Gen. John Floyd. It
was there that the Camden County
Hunting club organized in 1832, held its
meetings, made its rules and imposed
The charter members of the e'ub
were Charles R. Floyd, Richard Floyd,
Henry Floyd John Floyd, Ben Hopkirs,
J. II. Dilworth, James Holzendorf, John
Holzendorf, Alexander Holzendorf, P.
M. Nightingale, William Berrie and'
Henry $lu Big-non. Several ' members
joined afterward. The club dress was
a scarlet jacket and black pantaloons
and a fine of 500 copper caps was im
posed on Alexnder Holzendorf at one
meeting for not having on the regula
tion dress. No member-was to be ab
sent from the meetings unless by good
excuse, and' James Holzendorf was
fined 1,000 copper ea.ps for one absence.
After the day's hunt, sometimes with
the luck of 16 deer, an elegant dinner
was served before dispersing.
The lGth rule read: "Game is con
sidered by the club to be deer, benr,
hogs, cows, bulls; wildcats and turkeys."
Wild cattle and hogs abounded in ''lie
woods in those days, the latter living
to an old age, which was told by Ihe
tusks, sometimes eight to ten inches,
Gambling: In India.
Amongst the Hindoo throughout
ihe whole of India there is a holiday
celebration in honor of Lakshmi, the
goddess of wealth and good fortune,
whereon gambling is universally re
garded as a religious duty. It is known
as the festival of lamps, and on that day
all classes indulge in games of "chance
with shells, coins, cards, dice, etc., and
the future of the individual, whether
good or bad, is looked upon as a forecast
of his wealth or poverty during the en
suing year. The women take a most in
tense interest in the proceedings and, if
fortunate, expend- their winnings in
the purchase of sweet-meats and fruits,"
as gifts to all their friends and rela
tions, toys for the small children and
fireworks for the boys. At Benares,
thsir sacred city, as night approaches,
small earthen lamps, fed with oil, are
kindled, making the outlines of cvery
mansion, ' palace, temple and minaret
visible. All vessels in the river are also
illuminated; so that the whole city is
one blaze of light.
There's more clothing destroyed by
poor soap than by actual wear as the
free alkali rots them. Hoe cake is

prominence, nntil another State or National occasion demands a renewal of the
fight for the principles for which THE TRIBUNE has labored from its inception
to the present day, and won its greatest victories. - - -
