Bear Hhootlng la Thibet.
As I drew near i saw a large bear
standing hi the river feeding on the car
cass of a yak. Taking a gun from one
-of my men I fired at it, breaking Ha
anoulder. When my men saw what I
had ihot at they turned and beat a hasty
retreai, shouting to me to run, that the
"wild man" might not devour me. An
other shot, better aimed, put au end to
the bear, but not to the fright of my
Mongols, who even then would not ap
proach. Our failure to skin my prize
nearly broke my Tientsin servant's
heart, for by it he lust bis chance to se

Thibetans attack a bear only when they
are a strong, well armed party, if y hav

Character Cress the Fingers.
As far as the fingers are coucerned.
experts in palmistry divide hands into
three classes. Long, slender, tupering
lingers determine the first, and denote
delicate, trained perceptions. A subject
with such fingers has an innate fondness
for art, poetry, music and the higher
forms of iterator!;, in the second class,
the fingers are snorter, are nearly equal
in length, and hare bloat ends. They
denote a practical, material mind, thor
ough and reliable, rather tban brilliant.
A woman with such fingers would make
4 careful and efficient housekeeper, and
a man with similar ones would be cau
tions and thorough in business. In the
third class, the ringers are snort, thick
and square, ami have short, large nails,
with cushions on each side of the nails.
A subject having these fingers is active,
acbletic, qpiniooated, selnsh, has strong
appetites for the material things of life,
and is liable to form strong prejudices.

ARSENIC AND AMMONIA.
Remarkable Contrast la the Klteet of
Two Poisons ea the Complexion.
The alow absorption of many poisons
changes in some wore or lens modified
form the complexion, but arsenic and
ammonia show their effect about as
quickly as any. The popular belief that
arsenic clears the complexion has led
many silly women to kill themselves
witn it in small, continued doses.
It produces a waxy, ivory-like appear
ance of the skin during a certain stage
of the poisoning, but its terrible alter
effects have beeome too well known to
make it of common use as a cosmetic
The effects of ammonia upon the com
plexion are directly the opposite to that
of arsenic. The Ural symptoms of am
monia poisoning which appears among
those who work in ammonia factories is
a discoloration of the skin of the nose
and forehead. This gradually extends
over the face until the complexion has a
stained, blotched and unsightly appear
ance. With people who take ammonia ;
into their systems in smaller doses, as
with their water and food, these striking
symptoms do not appear so soon. The
only effect of the poison that is visible
for a time is a general ouwholesomeness
and sallowneas of the complexion.
Many people are slowly absorbing am
monia poison without knowing it The
nae of ammonia in the manufactures has
greatly increased of late, and it is un
questionably used as an adulterant in
certain food' preparations. Official anal
ysis bae plainly shown its use even in
such cheap articles of everyday con
sumption as baking powders. The con
tinned absorption of ammonia in even
minute nnantities as an adulterant in
food is injurious not merely from its el-
led upon tne complexion, nut Because it
destroys the coating of the stomach and
causes dyspepsia and xinarea evils.
Prof. Long of Chicago is authority for
the statement that, if to fifty million
parts of water there is one part of am
monia, the water is dangerous.

The utility of grumbling is something
to be considered. Perhaps the follow
ing title may set forth some of its ad
vantages. There is a woman over in
Brooklyn who has the bad taste not to
prefer tobacco smoke to fresh air. And
us she is thrown among business men
only when she is outside her home, she
doesn't appreciate the fact that the
brains of business men go by smoke
power in these days, and that to snuff
out the cigar of the ordinary man would
be to snuff out his intellect altogether.
And so a while ago, when she went to
her bank and had to stand in hue to get
to the cashier's desk and found a man
close in front of her holding his lighted
cigar behind him and a man close behind
her holding his lighted cigar in front of

state of unstable eqtritibrrum as to her

"Mr. Jones, for years I have transacted
my business with this bank, and I've
been annoyed all these years by men

is there no' remedy for this annoyance:
Can nothing be doner And the cashier
answered sadly: "1 m afraid not, Mrs.
Smith. Hen will smoke, yon know."
And she went away. But the next week
when she went back, over all the win

alike: "Smoking is not allowed in this

If the Federal government desires to
stamp out the tottery evil, there will be
little opposition on the part of the peo
ple and the press ; but, if it gives irre
sponsible underlines the power to stamp
out tbe press when it exercises its right
to discuss the law, the result will be not
only opposition, but indignation and
trouble all along tbe line.
Just now the papers are having a good
deal to say about the arrest of a Wiscon
sin editor because be nubliahed a clin-
ping from an exchange questioning the
validity of tbe anti-lottery law. if the
arrest "was made for nothing more than
this, then it is putting it mildly to say
that pur government bag become Rus
sianized so far as its treatment of the
mem is concerned.
This policy will not work. If lotteries
cannot be destroyed without also de
stroying the freedom of the press, tbe
people will be in favor of letting the lot
teries alone. We cannot afford to yield
our rielit to sneak and Dublisb fair criti
cisms of public measures. If we yield
the right in one instance, we may expect
to be forced to keep silence whenever it
suits the government to demand it.
Fortunately it is no easy matter to
bulldoze tbe newspapers of America.
Tbe menace of fine and imprisonment
will intimidate very few. No matter
what Federal officials may bold, tbe
newspaper men of tbe country will not
change their conviction that an honest
criticism or discussion of the provisions
contained in the anti-lottery law cannot
with any show of justice be held to be a
violation of tbat law. If they are mis
taken in this belief, then the law will
have to be repealed or modified. In this
Republic the government cannot array
itaelf against the press and have the
support of the people. Atlanta (Qa.)
