This visitor to the Pan-American exposition should not return home without going out to East Aurora to see the Jloycroft printing shop, and most of all Elbert Hubbard. Now East Aurora Is seventeen miles away from Buffalo. A'ou go down town to the Union depot and buy your ticket on the New York, Pittsburg & something or other railroad. The al phabet is so nearly exhausted In giv ing the initials of this railway that I really cannot rememher all the rest. AVhatever window you select at which to buy your ticket a polite mnn will tell you to go to the other. It will cost you just ninety-two cents for a return ticket. Then you join a group with lunch boxes and note books who look as If they were going In the same direction and you wait until the noisy man at the gate yells, "Ebenczor and East Uo.ir." "Hoar and Ebeue.er!" then you rush for the little train composed of an engine and two cars and you are on the way. It lies through a pretty country this way, rich market gardens where women toil in the hot sun, Holds of wheat and rye and acres of buttercups the hay ciop of western Now A'ork being chiefly butteicups and daisi this season, to please the eye of the ran-Amcrican tourist and the summer boarder. The train slops for an Instant at Ebenezcr, and you find yourself humming the old Methodist hymn. Here I raise my Kbineer, Hither by thy help I've ionic; Anil I hope, by thy good plea-uia, Safely to auivu at home. to the tune of (!o tell Aunt Hhoda, Co tell Aunt Hhoda, Co tell Aunt Ithod.i, Her old gra.v goov is dead. As a child, the mental picture of raising one's Ebcnezer was that of Hy ing into a rage, and for the life of you the impression that it is a cairn "f stores, a monument to mark one's safe journey or one's growth in grace, will not be fixed. Ebenezer N, you notiee, a modest little village of three houses and a station. There may be more dwellings beyond that gtoup of trees, but you prefer to think It Is no larger than It seems, i'ou speed on and at the next stop the conductor remarks nuletly "Kast Hoar," and you are at the end of the expedition. There may be other villages down the tracks where the train, now nlmost entirely empty Is leisurely travelling but you nre of the opinion that lliete N nothing beyond East Atirotn. That it Is the end of the universe and there Is no future, no past, nothing but eternal pe.tce and test and Kast Aurora. It is n pietty little village, wide of street, and deep of shade and green of earth. You wnlk up the way beneath gigantic trees, past a blown church of modern architecture until you come to another chinch. The mas sive stone woik, the quaint gables be neath spreading elms immediately ar resting your attention. If you are a Philistine, you know ut once that this "church" Is the Itoycioft printing shop, that you ate brushing Itoycioft grasses and breathing tho perfume of Hoy croft roses. A'ou enter the wide urehed entrnueo where conllng fiom the intense, beating light of the sun your eyes at first can only see a dim cool dlstaneo a vast oakfii door swung open against which Is trained In Hcmhriimlt tones tho HgiitP of a Blii. For an Instant sho is a part of tho plctuie, the cop. pery gleam of her hnlr, the rich color on her lips and cheek, the white throat the graceful head, melting into tho soft back ground in a succession of delicious tone effects. Hut she steps out of the frame and gieuts you graciously and gradually you nre conscious of tho strange, beautiful surroundings of which she Is a part. The walls, aro panelled In oak of i Ichest grain. Unpolished, golden and soft it opens endless vistas of coolness broken by the green of open spaces, the heavy oaken beams nbovo your head, tho deeper oaken tints be neath your feet. At the other side of this great living room Is the famous Hoycroft lire place built ot lleldstono reaching to the ceiling and flanked by heavily wrought and-lrons of curious design. The centre of the apartment Is oc cupied by a huge" lound table such as King Arthur and his knights must have leaned upon in the shadow of the Towers of Cnmelot. AVas It, too, strewn with wondrous volumes, Illu mined by brilliant tints wrought out in some old monastery and bound In dull 'greens and browns ns soft as a baby's hand? The furniture everywhere. In Hits de lightful place Is niitdo ot heavy oak and fastened together with wooden pegs, no nails or glue being Used. Masslvo chairs and desks! seals lit for some A'lklng of old, carved book cases and mantels fascinate the gozo on every side. In this great, cool twi light room tho sweet summer day seems like a chnpter out of a legend of some dim unrememhered castle, wheie time Is not calendared and life Is a dream ot other years. Photographs and drawings brighten tho wall spaces! Jars of field blos some stand In tho window embrasures and everywhere Is rest. In the work shops proper, ficore.i ot busy bauds arc Illuminating, painting, folding and marking the Philistine, the "hlt tle Journeys" and other books and pamphlets. In these room1', too, there Is a soft, cool dimness, and the faces bending over the tasks are happy faces, as of those who truly are bless ed In that they "have found their work." The beautiful girl with her copper brown hnlr and Hurne-.Tones brow, guides you whither you would go. She Is only a village maiden, she says, this tall, stately young goddess. She found her work In Illuminating the exquisite books which nre sent out Into the world. She learned to do It swiftly and well. "And because they say I can talk," she admits, naively, "I am sent about with visitors to see the shop, We will now go to St. Jerome's studio," she ndds placidly. A'ou must know that everybody, ns in the promise of heaven, has a new name. It bus a peculiar significance and dates back to some period in the career of the worker, who, perhaps, entered the place sore of foot and sore of heart, buffetted by the wot Id and baffled by fate. Here he litis found peace, rest, affection and re spect, and here be lingers in the shadowy halls with n dread of the glaring world, a shrinking from tho outer tumult. St. Jerome, with his dark, curling hair, bis wonderful eyes and his beau tifully poised bead, seems not only to have found his wdrk, but bis niche. Somewhere back in the distant years he was the boy, Jerome Connor, bear ing the burden of being misunder stood, beating his hands againt the walls which closed him about. He found ElGcrt Hubbard and the free dom of eternal life in the work of his soul, for he fashions rare models of his fancy and expression of his love from the clay on the long table, and the marble in yonder block. A'ou see Elbert Hubbard looking beyond and through you from the niche above your head. You see the sculptor's wife in her splendid southern beauty. A'ou see the Good Cray Poet, with his bent brows and tho small daughter of the Hubbard's, the little "Edition de l.uxe," as they call her, the curve of the childish lip caught so sweetly In the clay, the lock of soft hair care-sing the lineless brow, and you are glad that St. Jerome Is alive. He must have had a reincarnation from some far-away Florentine artist of buried ccntuiels and holds the dark beauty and the facile touch of his race as a heritage. Then there Is the art workroom, where the illuminated designs aro completed, whete with artistic f Inge is the young girls paint the quaint similes of thought in lettering and borders which so delight the eye of the connoisseur in the Hoycroft books. A'ou aro told that all these designs aie Hie conceived by "Sammy," the artist, whose perfect taste and judg ment nre acknowledged In the world of artistic bookmnklng. A'ou want to see 'Sammy"; you have been shown his photogiapli and have seen many of tho superb drawings from his pen cil, so you want to see "Sammy." Finally, up in a tower mom, dusky, cool and full of Rembrandt tones, you see the artist. AVhen lo! AA'hat do you suppose? AVby, "Sammy," the head of the establishment as legards the art work, Is Mr. Samuel AVarner, of Scranton, born and reared In this city nnd connected with several well known families. He is a step-son of the late Charles De Tong, and a son of one long connected with the Dela ware, Lackawanna and Western rail road. Mr. AVarner has not been n resident of Scranton for several years as his art studies in Boston, New A'ork and Europe have taken him away since boyhood. He was here on the occa sion of Mr. Hubbaid's vllt and lec tin o in this city, and keeps up nn Intimate friendship with Mr. Itobeit Ailains and Air. John Bralnard. He has great ability and no doubt a great career, as he Is a young man with ambition, His most recent work In cludes splendid drawings of ihe por traits of celebrated composers, for the "I.lttle Journeys." They are drawn with a free, bioad touch and the ut most feeling. He has made a study of old missals of the monasteries and the work of Floicntlue lllumlnutors of far-off centuries. Mr, AVarner lias been nt the Hoy. croft shops for two or three years. Mr.' Hubbard discovered him In Bos ton. H says that Scranton people never stray in tins direction of East Aurora. I cannot speak of "All Baba," of "Exhibit A," "The Bed One," and many other characters known welt among tho Uoycrofts. I cannot tell how the neat, beautiful woikrooms, from cellar to attic, Impress the visi torthe bowls of red clover blossoms on the desks, the great pitchers filled wiin daisies, tne pictures, the pianos, the air of peace nnd happiness which seems to pervade the buildings of all these 1 may not speak today; last of all, the spirit of Hoycroft, the genius of the place, must como In, Bight here let me correct a delusion Hint seems to have been sun end abroad through some malign agency. it is to tiiu effect that Elbert Hub bard has cut his hair. Ho has done nothing Of tho sort. It brums In classic wnves to his shoulders, as It has hung for some years. Ho cap still be compared to Buffulo Bill in nun respect, only Buffulo Bill, in prl vote life, wears his tresses tucked up beneath his hat in a compact little wad, much ns wo tuck m th iimi chlldton's flaxen locks In hot weather. Apparently Mr, Hubbard's favorite garb lor hot weather Is composed of corduroys, a belt about his waist nmi a shirt of fcoino darkish material. Ho is picturesque and magnetically at tractive, with those strange, dark, searching eyes and that fleeting smile. Ho says there Is no devil but fear and It Is evident that the evil bplrit una been cxorvlsed in tho Hoycroft bhops, unevenly inc uanner over them is love.

HOIUXSO.V (Annals ot S'urgeiy, rebrtnr)) "i"1 smns up his conclusions In an arllclo on "(lunvhot Wounds In the Filipino American Wan" 1. The modem gunshot wound Is generally neptle, and should bo treated on this supposition. 2. Asepsla U duo chiefly to the ehaiatter of Ihe bullet, and the early appli cation of flrsl-iiM drculng; ami. In a, minor de gtep, to the velocity of tho projectile. 3, Pri mary hemorrhage 'rom modern gunshot wounds Is exceedingly rare, the hlood-vcscls being din plated rather thin cut by the rapidly moving projectile. 4, 'Hie "explosive elTect" of the modern bullet Is much lesa common than recent military literature would Indicate. Thin pecil tier ilctruclho i fleet Is produced by the char acter of the tissue struck, as well as by the gieat velocity of tho bullet. 5. (lutishot wounds of chest aits rarely Infected. Simple antleptic tieatment, with aspiration of pleura In cases ol severe hemorrhage, Is all tint Is ncoissar. 6. Gutthot wounds of knee Joint aro usually aseptic, but, if infected, demand immediate amputation lo save life. T. Hxclston of elbow Is alwajs a Justifiable operation in levere shattering or Infec tion of that Joint. Hesectlon of bones of other Joints la rarely necessary, craslon or amputation being preferable. 8. Injuries of net via from gunshot wound ran often bo benefited by opera tive interference or resection. 0. In modern military surgery, abdominal section for gunshot wound Is not justifiable; the patient's best ihai'ie of n cowry lies In conservative treat ment without operation. Medical Lake In Washington. At an hour's journey troni Spokane Kails Is Medical Kike, In the city ot Mlddlebaugh. Willi. Ill .1 very short time a considerable ettlement has been (..t.iblished on the borders of this lake, 'the town has wide streits, excellent shops, and many neat dwellings. The alleged cuiatlve prn pertien of the waters of the lake have been the Incentive to this remarkable growth. The lake cowrs an cxlint of over a thousand acres and is encircled by low wooded hills. The watem are hi Id to hold In solution salts of sodium, polos slum, lithium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and aluminium, also sulphur and borax. A great va riety of ailments have been reported cured by bathing in the lake, ililif among them being lhiuiiiatism and certain disciics ot the skin. One of the prcprrties of the water is thai It forms a lather whenever it is agitated violently or rubbid quickly on. the hands or the surfaie of the body. No fl-h or other living tiling cm be found within these waters, and the lake itself is rather repul-lve and muddy In appearance. I'ae toriis lmc been established for evaporating the water and packing the salts obtained.

Dr. Adolph .Meieondes do Moura, of Sao lMiilo (llr.ml), contributes a piper on the application of uttlesnake poison to the ure of lepro-y to the Ceiiniu Mediti'l Weekly Journal.

It removes pimples, blackheads, sun tan and blemishes of all kinds. If used according to directions, and not satisfactory, the return of the empty jar will insure a refund of the price paid. "Oxzyn" Balm has undoubted merit. The demonstrator here will make this more than apparent.
