MISS GARRETT'S HEALTK
Kimon a to Her Condition Flatly Con-
Miss Mary Garrett, who, until recent
ly, -was considered the richest woman in
America, and who, notwithstanding her
losses incident to the receivership of the
Baltimore & Ohio railroad, still pos
sesses a vast fortune, has left Baltimore
for a visit to Bryn Mawr college, near
Philadelphia. A letter from her states
that she is confined to her bed with ton-
silitis. . V
Miss Garrett closed her magnificent
town house, corner of Cathedra and
Monument streets, Baltimore, some
i months ago, and since then, with half a
dozen male and female attendants, has
been living at the Mount Vernon hotel,
two doors above her residence. She left
there, taking a number of trunks, leaV'
in? no word as to where she was going
or where she could be found. On the
night of the crisis in Baltimore and Ohio
affairs, when the thunderbolt of failure
was announced, rumors spread tnrortgn
out the city to the effect that Miss Gar
rett had sucoumbed, and that her health
was impaired. The reports were false,
as she was then snugly ensconoed at the
Mount Vetnon hotel. Philadelphia
PRAYS ALL THE TIME.
Andrew Stoke Won't Stop Even to Eat or
Andrew Stoke of Pottsville, Pa., is
laboring under a most peculiar halluci
nation, and his case has baffled the pby
sioians. A few weeks ago he was an in
dustrious miner, but about seven days
ago he declared that he was intensely
wicked, and since that time has prayed
incessantly, not stopping to eat or sleep.
Be imagines his bedroom is filled with
angels and spirits of departed ones.
Ha declares he must keep praying in
order to keep the evil spirits from seiz
ing him. . When he steps into his bed'
room, he holds his Bible with a death'
like grip to his breast, fearful lest it be
wrested from him.
To raise a debt of $000 upon theMeth

plant it with wheat. When the crop is
harvested, it will be sold for the benefit
of. the church. He is now asking the
brethren for seed wheat.

THE TRUE HERO.
Brave , la Presence of Damajer, bnt
. . Careful of Unman Mte. '
Mr. Archibald Forbes in bis biogra
phy of Lord Clyde, better known as
Sir Colin Campbell, the bero of the
Sikh wars, draws unconsciously, a
sharp contrast between physical and
moral courage. Sir Colin was the son
of a carpenter In Glasgow, named Mac
liver. His mother's brother, Colonel
Campbell, took the boy at fifteen to the
Duke of York, and asked fop: a com
mission for him. The duke (assented,
and remarking, "Another of I the clan,
I suppose?" wrote his name (down as
When they werin the street again,
Colin anxiously said, "He dldvinot get
my name Macliver."
"Bide a Campbell," said his uncle,
gruffly. "It'U.pay better among fight
ing men." -
And Colin.' Campbell he remained
while he lived. -
The lad's strongest wish was to prove
that he bad courage enough t& do honor
to his Campbell blood and adopted
His first battle was at'Vimieras when
he was sixteen. His battalion baited
under a fierce fire of artillery, but his
company was protected, being In the
rear of the column. His captain, at the
lad's desire,.' took him out to the head
of the battaSlon, and walked with him
through the rain of bullets for several
minutes. It killed the coward In him.
When he was an old man he told' the In
cident, Baying: : : . ,
'I have been, grateful to that man all
of my life." .t
At a. subsequent assault he .was se
verely wounded In both legs, and sent to
the hospital; but finding that a battle
was ' Imminent; he deserted from the
hospital and llmnped back to his com
pany, taking command without leave.
His courage. was so marked In the fight
which followed that he "was promoted,
while he was severely reprimanded for
bis disobedience. . ' :
But Sir Colin, grown oM .and wiser,
and at the head of the English forces
In the Punjab, was curiously tender of
human life. He begrudged' every man
that fell In a battle, and planned so
resolutely to save, them tHiat he was
dubbed "Old Kubtoerdar 01d Take

He was urged by the- Punjab govern

"With reinforcements, yes,'.' 'was his
reply. . .
They were refused. "Then I' will not
go," calmly replied the old soldjler.

Many Will Recall This Sad Affair
Which Happened in 1892.
Mr. B. Watklos, of This City, Who Waa
Injured In tbe Wreck Tells of His
. .Terrible Bufferings and
From the Examiner, San Francisco, Cal.
Mr. H. Watkins lives at 2008 Geary
street, San Francisoo. , He is a railway
postal clerk, and has been in that
business for years. When Been at his
home he gladly told his experience
with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People. He narrates the faots leading
up to his trying them, the benefits he
has enjoyed by their use and the re
sults of recommending them to others.
He said: "I have suffered from
rheumatism for years. At times I
have been so bad that I could not raise
my arms over my head. No one bad
worse rheumatism than I had. I got
it first in the Truokee smash-up. I
was laid on the snow in the wreck and
then taken to the railroad hospital.
Ever sinoe then I have suffered at times
terribly, that is to say, up till a year
ago. Once at Redlands, in San Bern,
ardino county, I thought I should die,
and at Promontory I was so crippled
that I had to be carried to the mail
oar. No one who baa not had it can
understand the agony.' I was not able
to get out of bed at times. I had to
orawl on hands and knees from the
bedroom to the kitchen.
"Occasionally when I tried to rise
in the morning the pains would seize
me and I had to be caught to prevent
my falling. I tried every kind of medi
oine. The only thing that helped me
at all up to a year ago was some fear
ful stuff an old Mormon gave me when
I was taken down in Utah. It was
horrible stuff to take and only eased
me for a short time.
"About a year ago I went into the
'No Percentage Pharmacy,' on Market
street While I wag there an old man
named Cowen, of Vallejo Junction,
oame in. He told me be waB going to
get Pink Pills for his rheumatism. I
told him if 'they could do him good
they might help me too. He had been
up to Byron Springs and was nearly
doubled up with rheumatism. The
doctors told him just as they had told
me, that medioine would do him no
good. Well, I didn't give up. 1 am
a young man and you would not expect
me to give myself up as a hopeless
rheumatio at my age. I was ready to
try anything. I bought two or three
boxes of the pills and began to take
them.' The way in which they took
hold of me was simply wonderful. I
did not take many of the pills either,
and of course, I am careful not to ex
pose myself. I have' never been lame
since and have never lost a night's
sleep from rheumatism. ' I recommend
ed the pills to my friends and I have
yet to bear from the first one who has
not been benefited. As for myself, I
would gladly make affidavit to the
good they have done me, in fact I am
only too happy to do so, for I cannot
say too much for the benefit I have re-'
' "Going through Vallejo Junction
on my train one day I saw the old
gentleman, Mr. Cowen, and I oalled
out to him 'how are the Pink Pills. '
He replied they are fine.'
"I was down in Los Angeles and
oalled upon a postal olerk, a friend oi
mine. He told me that his wife was s
great sufferer from rheumatism. I told
her to try the Pink Pills, and now
there is no one in Los Angeles whe
thinks more of, the pills than Mrs.
Carr, that is her name. I don't thml
she had rheumatism quite so badly ai
I, but she was just as anxious to get ric
of it, and she is just as grateful to be
well again. ,
"I always keep a box of the pilli
handy just in case I should need them,
though my wife will tell you hovt
rarely I use them now. "
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, ir
a . condensed form, all the elementi
necessary to give new life and richnest
to the blood and restore shattered
nerves. They are an unfailing specific
for such diseases as locomotor ataxia,
partial paralysis, St Vitus' dance,
soiatioa, neuralgia, rheumatism, nerv
ous headaohe, the after effect of Is
grippe, 'palpitaiton of the heart, pale
and sallow complexions, all forms ol
weakness either in male or female.

dier? I suppose it's natural enough too.
It is perfectly natural that people should
be most impressed by the greatest bat
tles of tbe war, and natural enough to
get an idea that the greater the battle
the greater the danger and the greater
the call for bravery, but as a matter of
fact, a man can be killed just as dead
in a little fight as in a big one. " New

VERY QUEER LAKE.
Puzzle to Geolosrleta in the Bine Graaa
; Region of Kentucky.
Sinking Creek, in the northwestern
part of this county, is not a running
stream or creek, as one would imagine
from its name, but It is a large lake,
which forms only In the spring of the
year, when thaws and rainfall produce
an overabundance of water, says a
NIcholasvllle correspondent In the Cin
cinnati Enquirer. The formation of a
lake covering over 200 acres of land
and sometimes over 300 comes with the
suddenness of a rise in the Mississippi
The lake Is formed in a hollow entire
ly surrounded by gradually inclining
hills of blue grass fields and meadows,
These hills are at first imperceptible to
the eye on account of the gradual and
even slope of the surrounding country.
A closer examination of the country
for miles around it all gradually in
clines to the place where the springtime
lake forms, but the place Itself is mere
ly a slightly rolling tract of land, over
which various fences, trees, and shrub
beries are seen. As the lake depends
on the rainfall for Its supply of water,
it Is larger some years than others, and
has been known to cover 350 acres of
land, and the water all the way from
five to thirty feet deep. This body of
water Is a veritable Mecca for duck
hunters at the time of the year when
ducks pass through Kentucky on their
way to the Northern lakes. .
There is no outlet above the earth iri
the way of a creek or hollow. There is
no cave or sink hole on any of the land
which is covered by water through
which the water may , escape. . Yet
within one month thfs immense amount
of water disappears. After the disap
pearance the earth, which Is covered,
Instead of being a wet, marshy place,
as Is the case of an ordinary spring
time rise in water, is a beautiful, fer
tile blue grass vale, over which blooded
Kentucky stock roam during the sum
mer months and fatten on the rich pas
turage. No appearance of a marsh or
water weeds, etc., is found after the
lake has gone.
Exactly what causes the "sinking" of
the lake has never been determined, al
though various geologists have visited
the scene. It is a well-known fact that
quicksilver thrown into a pond or lake
will cause it to soon sink, and it is
claimed that the water forming this
lake, as It Is drained down from the
surrounding hills, brings with it a com
position of Bome kind simfjar to mer
cury or quicksilver In Its action on sink
ing a lake, and that tl.s is the key
to the mystery of Sinking Creek.

most to a growl; when the notes rose
in, loud strains Roger pointed his nose
to tbe ceiling and sang a wild, long
wail of pathos in such treble as was
never heard. When-it was all over and
the last note of tbe music bad sounded,
he wagged his tail and walked around
to each one of the company for con
It was several months ago that tl.c
Porters first learned that they had shel
tered this musical prodigy, and they
and their neighbors have been having
infinite ' amusement with him ever
since. By dint of all the practice they
have given htm, Roger has Improved
vastly. He has learned songs and can
distinguish from the first few notes of
the accompaniment what selection Is
expected of him, and he sings them
with all the feeling that a dog could
have, and vastly more that some peo
ple seem capable of. There Is only one
thing that will stop him in the middle
of a song, and that Is to be laughed at.
If he Is laughed at he stops short, eoea
