CLARKE FURNITURE DEALER .aie-tod FUNERAL DIRECTOR • 7. 8. 9. 1.0. Twentieth Century Sorceress Who Has Surprised Civilized Humanity. Is it possible that witches still exist and find credulous victims to cozen and fleece? It is true the voodoo "woman may be found in the south and the medicine man is not yet extinct among the Indian tribes, yet they are believed to be survivals only possibly among the uncivilized of the negro and Indian people, says the Springfield Republican. Yet the real witch with the caldron in which she brews her magic philters, with her spells and curses, are things so wholly of the past that it is a shock to read of a sorceress having been arrested in fair Perugia Perhaps the account is the invention of a newspaper reporter bound to produce a sensation for the benefit of his journal. However that may be, the story is a good one. It sets forth, with a due care for details, the maze of alleys in a suburb of the city, where a house whose doors are closed to all but women who seek powerful love potions to bring back the affections of lost lovers, or fatal drafts that shall properly preserve faithless husbands—shelters a famous sorceress. Rumors having got about concerning the unholy rites and ceremonies practiced in that house, the police, so the story goes, gain admittance through a pretext, seize the witch and search the premises and find its walls hung with mysterious symbols, human skulls and bones, heads of various animals, strange weapons, many books of evil import, full of Incantations and spells and other aids such as witches are supposed to use. The woman, who was old and supposed to be fabulously wealttiy, was seized and all her paraphernalia collected and conveyed away for trial and all Perugia, and presumably Italy, is supposed to he in a state of suspense until the worst is known. Supposing this tale true, what would he an adequate punishment for a witch? In the good old times, so much lamented, there would have been but one end possible. The witch would have been burned at the stake. But in 1908 a term of imprisonment is probably the worst that could happen, and that would be a flat ending of the story. But the days of what is called romance are over. Novels and-the Digestion. Should you read" novels at meals or should you talk? - Which" is the better for digestion? There's-^a common subject for hot-weather discussion on piazzas of summer hotels.' One person 3ays: "Don't read at meals, especially an.exciting novel, as it interferes indirectly with digestion. One's mind is fixed intently on the book, when all attention should be given to the process of mastication; consequently the blood which should be helping digestion is rushed from the head." "A tranquil condition of mind and body "is needed to insure perfect digestion. I think it- is far better for one to dine in company. When the diner talks he naturally prolongs the meal, thus giving more time for the food to be digested." "PittsburghPerfect" Fences The Best Because I. Stays;are Electrically Welded to the strands forming a perfect union and an amalgamation with the strands riot" found in any other fence. ..2.
