! He Cured A Savage’s Stomach Ache
And Became Chieftan Of Cannibals
Chlel Cuviboranandl, plumed head
man of the Guaymi cannibals, has
Just returned to New York after an
other visit to his adopted home in
the hinterland of Panama. In New
York he Is more prosaically known as
A. H. Verrlll, author of 60 book;; on
travel, ethnology and archeology
Mr. Verrill’s elevation to chietuom
among the cannibals came as the
result of an expedition he made In
search of the fabulously rich gold
mine of Tisingal, in Costa Rica
whose secret has been guarded for
hundreds of years by the Guaymi
After incredible hardships he hap
pened to reach the dwelling of King
Polu, cacique of the Shayshan Ind
ians, guardians of the lost mine.
And there fate Intervened, to dis
close the perilous secret. For the
King’s daughter, aged eight, was
stricken with an agonizing cillc.
Verrill cured her. "Come with md”
bade the king. Endless hours Verrill
followed him. At last the king rhow
ed him the mine.
"There, hidden In rank growth ”
says Verrill In the American Maga
zlne, "lay wealth beyond one’s wild
est dreams. Gold and the white
mans lust for wealth have always
been the curse of the Indians, and
I am thankful that the secret of
this lost treasure-place, the world’s
richest gold mine, is so effectively
The Guaymis, Verrill explains, live
among mountains that are still un
explored. Verrill was warned not to
go among them, but. In spite of 411
that, he went. For many days he
dw'elt as a guest In the house of
their Chief Neonandl.
Atfer Verrill had been some time
with the chief, a huge dance-festi
val was organized for him, on a Re
mote mountain-top. But just before
the festivities the ’’dance chief,” or
medicine man fell sick.
“I diagnosed his trouble as only
colic, and gave him some medicine,”
said Verrill. “The others gathered
about me and watched me rever
ently, for word had spread that I
was doctoring the dance-chief, a
sacred personage. If he sought my
help, I must be great Indeed.”
Well, the witch doctor recovered,
and VerrlU’s fame grew swiftly. Aft
er the dance he w'as led into a tem
ple and up to the altar.
“I was absolutely duniiour.dec
says Verrill, “for I realized l was
being made a ‘medicine chief. When
the ceremony was ended, I w,as a
full-fledged Guayml chief, honored
as no white man had ever been—ad

A Man Never Seen
Sixty-Two Tear Old Widow Lands
G9-Year-Old Indiana Widower
A romance between two people
who had never seen each other, wn ;
culminated in Vlncenes, I«U., at
five o’clock Saturday before Easter
when the couple were married.
They are now Dr. and Mrs. M H.
Evans, of Joplin. Before Saturday
they were Dr. M. H. Evans, of Jop
lin, and Mrs. Ellen Winslow, of
Hertford, Perquimans county. North
Carolina, who is the historian of her
family. The bridegroom is 69, while
the blushing bride doesn’t deny that
62 summers as well as winters have
passed over her head, yet they
seem to have the affection for each
other like the love of a couple in
Their acquaintance came about
through a queer twist of fate. Three
years ago, Dr Evans wrote to the
county Clerk at Hertford and asked
him If he could furnish information
concerning his ancestors who had
settled there after coming to Amer
ica from Wales.
The clerk turned the matter over
to his mother, Mrs. Ellen Winslow
who is a historian of note. She gave
the matter her personal attention
ahd began communicating with Dr.
Ur. Evans’ family was traced hack
to 1650, when Peter Evans, one of
the doctor's ancestors came to
America from Wales to escape the
Iron rule of Cromwell.
More than a year ago Dr. Evans'
first wife died, but the historic mat
ter had not been complete and the
doctor and Mrs. Winslow continued
their communication ■ with each
Finally, the history was nearly
Dr. Evans wrote for a picture of
Mrs, Winslow. She sent a negative.
The letters became more regular
and Intimate. The feeling was mu
tual and the couple agreed to get
married. That was to have been last
Dr. Evans started for Hertford but
was forced to turn back because cf
motor trouble. Plans were changed.
Vincennes was picked as the town
they were to be married in, and Eas
ter was set as the day.
Mrs. Winslow came by train. Dr.
Evans drove the 500 mites from Jop
lin, arriving at Vincennes Just 30
minutes before train time.
It was a happy meeting at the

she would,’’ said Dr. Evanif. ' ’ j :d

broke in with a smile.

there will be no "family quarrels,"
