NO TRAGEDY AFTER ALL
Pickled Digits Cause a Flurry of
Komo oxciteraont was. catttcd ovor
Sunday by reports of tho finding of
various porta of a human body out near
tho cemetery, and luciecs at a dark
tragedy were rifo. Wnon tho reports
wcro simmorrd down they reiolvcd
thcmiolvos principally into fingers and
thumbs, ond it finally developed thut
tho articles had como from the office of
one of Martdigeld's phyiicians. Tbey
consisted of members which ho had
severed from their original owners In
tbo curlier days of IiIb career as a snr
con, when that tort of thing was moto
of nnovnlty. Ho had put '.them away
In nlcohol. Some time ago he had his
oflico renovated, nnd ono of the work
men om ployed wai a young Boer who
had fouRht Etvorol years in tho South
Africa wnr. A few severed finders or
hands cut up flauro with him, and hu
evidently fired them out with the reet
of tbo trash.
The first nrtlclo diecovcred was n
thumb which was detached from a Cur
ry county man about 20 years ego, and
it rooms that tho small boy has found
othar treasures of tbo eamo kind, latar.
It Is a great misfortune of many of
tho suflorcrs from womanly diecatoa that
thoy have accepted tho idea '.that such
diiciees aro a part of woman's natural
horltaRO. The reason for this wldo ac
ceptance of womanly euflerlng as tjatur
aland ncceeary is twofold: On tho
one handjtho number of women who
euffijr'is so great that tho woman who ir
oxempt from womanly weaknets oecmB
to bo Snomaly, a contradiction.. On tho
other hand, tho general failure of local
practitioners to effect a euro of womanly
diseuee leads to their acceptanco c
Tho firtt thing that a woman nccde
to rcitlijo is that womanly dlfeaeo is un
natural and in general unnecessary. It
would bo ns reasonable to suppose that
tho natural typo of man was tho man
dwarfed, mles shaped, crippled and de
formed, ns to supposo that tho natural
condition of woman waa ono of mleory
and suffering. Disease is unatural.
Where theioie ono Tromon who stands
frco from tho diseases which so com
monly oflllct horsex, she is tho standard
of natural womanhood. Every woman
should be llko her. Almost all .women
could be llko her if they used tie rJr,hl
