Hon to Vso Statistics.
Ono long engaged in statistical work
feels more and more keenly, us the results
of original Investigation, not only the lim
itations of statistics, but the fact that per
fectly honest nnl truthful statistical
tables may not only be vicious in them
selves but may also lead to tho most
worthless conclusions, the tables them
selves not, indicating and It not being pos
sible to full indicate by them the exact
truth they contain.
The method I believe is the surest for as
certaining conditions and tho truest on
which to base conclusions, but the method
must bo supplemented by full and frank
analysis. A statistical tablj independent
of such analysis ts to mo what a red flag is
to a bull. It Immediately excites antag
onism aud invites attack.
The value of any statistical presentation
must depend upon the basis upon which it
Is made, the integrity of thu collection of
the various elements of it, and thu analysis
which accompanies it. No one has any
right to quote statistical tables withuut
using and understanding tiie analysis of
them. It Is because of tho flippant aud
cureless use of statistics by writers and
Speakers that it receives their condemna
tion. No one thinks, however, of condemning
ann'sthctics u-cause the burglar chloro
forms his vic tim; or the elementary rules
of arithmetic, the means by which all
honest accounts are kept, simply because
dishonest accounts arc made possible by
the same mo- pa. Carroll I). Wright in

It nil that bus been said of the almost
Bupernatural powers of the madstone be

need have no fear of blood poisoning or
hydrophobia in the future. A reul mud
stone. In tiptop workiug order, has made
Its nppearauce in the city, tho custodian
being Mrs. Daisy MuhnUin, formerly of
Columbus, W. Va. She is prepared to
cure the most obstinate of blood diseases
by simply applying the peculiar looking
pebble, which she has treasured (or years.
"The stone which is my greatest treasure
was found In a sand bank near Wheeling
over fifty years ago by u man named Wil
liams," said Mrs. Mahtahn, "and it came
into my possession about live years ago. I
have used it a number of times, and al
wuys with perfect results. Among the
cases in which it has proved beneficial is that
of Mrs. K. W. Schneider, of Columbus, O.
This lady had suffered for years. Her
mouth was eaten with cancer, nnd her case
was one of eleven years' standing, A num
ber of doctors had all pronounced Mrs.
Schneider's trouble cancer, nnd it looked
ns though her caso was hopeless. The
stone was applied and it took hold aud be
gan to 'nurse' immediately. In two weeks
the lady was entirely cured, and today she
is a well woman.
"Mrs. Mary Fleming, also of Columbus,
bad blood poisoning in her left urm. The
limb had swollen to treble its normal size
and was of an angry purple color. A sur
geon had just decided to amputethe arm
at the shoulder when I heard of it. The
stone was applied, nnd it 'moved' so hard
that Mrs. Fleming fainted. The treatment
was kept up and in two hours thu dis
coloration had disappeared and in threo
days sho was recovering. She la now en
"Eddie Logan, a little boy of Logan, O.,
was bitten In the leg by a rabid dog. I
bad the bov brought t;i Pnln,,,),,,. Th
stone wns applied aud the boy was all right
In an hour. Another boy, Charlie Grey, of
Kansas City, was nlso suffering from rab
blesand 1 cured him by applying the. stone.
"It has cured a great number of cases of
hydrophobia and blood poisoning and also
a number of snake bites copperheads and
rattlesnakes. I don't believe any amount
of money would induce me to let it go."
The stone Is about, an inch in length nnd
three-quarters of au inch in width. It is of
n peculiar shape, being a quarter of the
original stono which was split up and
divided years ago. It i covered on three
sides wdth little cells filled with "suckers"
that closely resemble tiny seashells. These
suckers send out minute tongues, when
the Itone ts applied, and each little tonguo
draws on the wound With astonishing
power. The stone absorbs all of thu poison
drawn out, and when tho wound is clean
the stone drops oh. It is then placed In
milk, which fluid will instantly turn green.
The stone is then cleansed and is ready for
another application. Chicago Tribune.
Bow to Keep Witches Away.
There are it great many people whom I
know, both white and colored, who never
go to bed on a windy night without first
sprinkling salt arouud their beds. This
keeps the witches out. Another protec
tion is to set up a knife, fork and spoon at
the head of the bed, and then, so say the
Sufferers, one can see the witch that visits
one und tell exactly who it is. Placing
bent pins in the track of a reputed witch is
another method of proving wit hcraft. If
upon returning In the same tracks sho
limps, then the pins have struck home iu
their uncanny mission, and she is a witch.

"aontiomehi As u result ot the memorable
blltsard Of March, 1S8H, I contracted mUMUlai
rheumatism i at that time i was engaged on
jni of steamnttlng In PlalnSeld, N. J., ami it
was necessary (or me to wade through tho snow
to tho building, a new residence, In which wr
were working. Kor eighteen mouths after
wards I was laid up with muscular rheumatism
and sciatica. I then Joined my son-ln-luw In
Denver, Col, where I was engaged In Steam
nttlng .mil engineering, und where l commenced
to take Hood's Sarsaparilla for my rheumatism
it cured mo not only of the rheumatism and
sciatica, hut also of outward piles, from Which
tor thirty -threo years I had I Offered
A Thousand Deaths.
Previous to going to Denver I visited th
University of Pennsylvania to ho operated upon.
The doctor pronounced my case elongation of
tho bowels und the worst he ever saw. He re
fused to perform an operation, saying that after
having suffered so many years It was not worth
while that I should die at that late day from the
effects of the knife, and die 1 would If ho used It.
No Wlsn Can Conceive
what I suffered for thlrty-threo years. I tried
all sorts of remedies and treatments, often
without thes Slightest relief. Four bottles ol
Hood's Harsapaulla not only relieved, but
cured, both tho piles and rheumatism. The
only truce of rheumatism which I feel now Is a
little stiffness when the weather changes, and
as I will be 73 years old In August that Is but
Incidental to my age. This Is a simple, state
ment of facts,'' ,1am as R. Bo,ni, W 'West
