"About two years ago my eyes got in
such a condition that I was unable to go

the balls and lids. I tried home remedies
without relief. Then I decided to go to our
family physician, but he didn't help them.
Then I tried two more of our most promi-
nent physicians, but my eyes grew contin-
ually worse. At this time a friend of mine
advised me to try Cuticura Ointment, and
after using it about one week my eyes were
considerably improve, and In two weeks
they were almost' well. They have never
given me any trouble since and I am now

to diOase, the a_ with the least

white man's tSulatIons made him
whbate was In '6; heredity and the
negro mode of life makes him what
he Is today.
Before the war the great mas of
aroes a they are today-were
agricultral laborers. Their masters
preseorbed hours of toll and rest.
provided homes and overlooked their
amusements. Irrespective of any
humane motive, the master's selfish
Interest demanded the best possible
are of his property.
The planters had received from
Africa a horde of barbarians, who
had no Idea of hygiene, sanitation
or medicine. The planter took this
stock and made a healthy race in a
new land. He located his slave quar-
ters on the healthiest spot of his
plantation, laid them out in the form
of a little village, with separate
houses, yards and gardens for each
family. There was good water and*
-- good drainage.
The negro, in 1860, was a near-
r-'*' perfect specimen of physical man,
while "in the south today the negro
lives where he pleases, and In such
manner as suits him best. The plan-
tation quarters are not laid out as
formerly, the cabins are scattered,
often without regard to sanitation
or water. No efficetent supervision is
exercised over the negro's care of
, his cabin. He Is notoriously un-
clean. His home Is rarely white-
washed or disinfected. In the rural
districts the blacks have nothing like
the medical attention and care that
was formerly bestowed upon them.
Negroes dearly love medicine; all
kinds of herbe and teas and concoc-
tions. They delight In dosing them-
selves with patent nostrums, all man-
ner of home cures and conju-charms."
"The deadliest enemy of the negro
is tuberculosis--but It is a new en-
emy. Old-time southern physicians
are almost unanimous In the opinion
that before the war tuberculosis was
less frequent among the negroes than
the whites. Some of them mention It
as exceedingly rare-many Insisting

Metehnlkeff Makes New Discovery In
Studying the Old-Age Problem.
Dr. F. Mortimer TAurence of 1733
Chestnut street, Philadelphia, who Is
just back from Europe. announces
that Professor Elle Metchnikoff, head
of the Pasteur Institute in Paris, be-
lieves that he has at'last solved the
question of longevity. Professor
Metchnikoff, more than two years
ago, was confident that sour milk
would prove the chief element in
stopping the advance of old age, but
his continued researches have proved
to him that while his first theory
was good In part it would not In prac-
tice achieve all the results looked
for. He is now confident that he has
discovered a sure road to longer life.
Dr. Laurence said:
"If the theories of Professor
Metchnikoff are correct the mystery
of the 'fountain of eternal youth,'
which has been the search for cen-
turies, has been partly solved. This
does not mean that the scientist be-
lieves he has discovered the secret of
living for centuries, .but that he has
found the cause of death and the
method of retarding it for many
years. If he is correct the life of
man will be spread far 'beyond the
The experiments which Professor
Metchnikoff has been conducting
have (been along the line of in-
quiry which he has followed for sev-
eral years. It is his theory that
death Is a disease, due to the forma-
tion of putrefartive bacteria. These
are formed in the large intestine,
and their effect is to poison -the
blood, causing the hardening of the
blood vessel walls. A few years ago
Professor Metchnikoff expressed the
belief that opposing or destroying
elements might be contained in sour
and butter milk. His conclusion,
formed since then, is that the bac.
teria of lactic acid are not sufficient-
ly powerful to overcome the death-
Since then his search has been for
bacteria, harmless or even helpful to
the human system, which are at the
same time capable of destroying the
putrefactive germs. Such an organ-
ism was first found in Russia in the
Kephir bacillus, and since then even
more powerful varieties have been
Professor Metchnikoff's theory is
based on a comparison of the length
of life between animals which have
the large Intestine and those which
are without it. Certain birds and ani-
mals he has found retain their ac-
tivity virtually until death, and in
every Instance these creatures do not |

In a mountain village was informed by
the local queen that her people could
not onot~ie their farming owing to
the raldf of baboons.
During the absence of the men a
few weeks previously these beasts
had actually come into the heart of
the village and destroyed the crops.
The natives are in constant dread of
them, and continually fear for the

SUITERRANKAN ANIMAL LIFO.
Resembles General Type of tihe
Country-Changee Animals Undergeo
The underlife of the caves has a
world of Its own. Animals are born
in subterranean caverns hollowed out
by streams; develop. reproduce and
die while forever deprived of the
sunlight. There Is no cave mammal
except a rat, nor is there a cave
bird. There are no animals that re-
quire much nourishment.
Grottoes with underground rivera
have the most life. Usually the sub-
terranean life resembles the general
types of the country. It has entered
the cave and become acclimated
there, uftdergoing divers adaptive
modifications. So we generally find.
in modified forms, the life of our
time. But in some caverns there
seem to be the remains of an an-
cient animal life that has everywhere
else disappeared from terrestrial riv-
ers and lives only in certain cav-
The creatures of modern species
that have adapted themselves to un-
derground conditions are sharply sep.
rated from the light dwellers. Their
skin is whitish, or transparent. The
eye atrophies or disappears alto-
gether. The optic nerve and the op-
tic lobe, disappear, leaving the brain
profoundly modified. Other organs
develop in proportion. Those of
hearing, smell,. touch, become large
sensitive hairs. long and coarse, ap-
pear all over the body.
These changes are produced gral-
ually. In animals kept in darkness
It has been possible to see the re-
gression of the eye and the hyper-
trophy of the other sense organs.
With fishes observed since 1900 the
absence of light determined a re-
markable arrest of growth. Their
length was about two Inches and
their weight less than an ounce.
whereas similar fish kept in daylight
reached five Inches and two and sev-
en-tenths ounces.-Chicago Tribune.

overcoat, waistcoat, halt hose, gloves
The second period of mourning
lasts six months for a wife and tree
months for any other relative. In
this time gray Is correct and the
mourning band is not worn on the
hat. Black and white effects as well
as gray are allowable.
The brassard or sleeve band Is In
exceedingly bad form. It originated
in England as an expedient for ser-
vants ani others who could not af-
ford entire change of outfit.
Attendance at social affairs of a
ceremonious charnacter is not expect-
ed during the first period of mourn.
Ing. If circumstancess make it neo-
essary the only change from custom-
ary usage is in daytime, black gloves
and cravat. instead of gray, and in
the evening cloth band, not silk, on
the silk hat.
Black tie and waistcoat should not
be substituted in the evening for the
white, nor are black studs and links
or black bordered handkerchiefs any
longer approved. These things sav-
ored of parading sorrow and have
wisely been abandoned. The prim-
ary purpose of black is to prevent
such embarrassment As might arlso
