If fe- COLD WATM CUBES ALL. A UNIVERSAL PANACEA FOR SUFFERING HUMANItY. tTPMR BES MOINES; ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20,1802* "Tho Ablic Sobadtlaii Kneipp" and ttl» Power of Healing — A Patient De- •Orlbes the Method of the Priest's Treatment—Cold Water Used Externally. Few Americans have seen the little tillage of Wderisliofen, between Mem- itiingeii and Augsbourg, in Bavaria, and Jret for the past four or five years this little btirg has attracted as many visitors as Bayreuth and Oberammergau. Woer- ishofen is celebrated not for its mineral waters, not for its bracing air, but for its marvelous cures performed by the ' priest of the village, the Abbe Sebastian Kneipp. Each year at least 30,000 invalids make a pilgrimage to Woerishofen and endure all inconveniences in order to be cured by the Abbe Kneipp. The Abbe Kneipp is a celebrity in Germany. He is called a genius, a savant, a benefactor of the hunmn race. Everything in the village is named for the wise priest. For instance, there is Kneipp coffee, Kneipp bread, Kneipp linen, etc. Always nt least a dozou physicians are present at tho consultations of the priestly heal?r, and these, after thoroughly understanding his system, will found Kneipp Anstalteu at Stuttgart. Munich. Wurtzbourg, etc. This good abbe believes that water will cure all the ills to which flesh is heir. A friend who went from Paris to consult the Abbe Kneipp has told me of her experience at Woerishofen, and of her great admiration for the abbe's wisdom. TUB ABBE. In the village there are only three or four primitive inns, but most of the invalids lodge in private houses no less primitive. The abbe has been compelled to build a large house for the benefit of the clergy, for priests also ask to be cured , by their confrere. The abbe receives at the presbytery, and begins consultations at 8 o'clock in the morning. The great physician sits in a large room on the ground floor, surrounded by pupils. The abbe is a fine looking man. His regular features and fresh complexion denote health, and his broad, high forehead, hardly touched by a wrinkle, is framed in white hair. His eyes are the bluest and brightest I have ever seen, for his soul seems to be concentrated in these eyes, and they penetrate you through and through—in fact, to make a diagnosis, the abbe only looks at a patient and in diagnosis he never errs. Some who went to the priest with despair in their hearts left him buoyed up by courage and with the assurance , that their diseases were not incurable. Although the abbe says "I cannot destroy death," still he has cured many whose diseases baffled the skill of others, A. man whose face was disfigured by a horrible cancer asked his advice. Calmly the priest said, "It fs easily cum]," and after several weeks of lotions and baths the cancer disappeared. The blind have recovered their sight and the lame i Lave walked. According to the Abbe Kneipp every disease originates in the blood; there may be a disturbance in its circulation, where may be u derangement of its composition. WHAT WATER DOES. Water alone can act thoroughly on the blood, and water produces four noticeable effects, It dissolves the injurious principles of the blood, eliminates that which has been dissolved, restores regular circulation to the purified blood and fortifies the debilitated organism. In a talk with the abbe after consultation hours, he said that fifty years ago people did not take cold as at the present time. Why? Simply because the body was more hardened to changes in temperature. Water makes the body capable of enduring all climates, and the best way to begin the treatment is to walk barefoot in the wet grass. After a quarter of an hour's promenade without drying the feet, one must put on dry shoes and Stockings and exercise until the feet are very warm. "If you can find no dew, no wet grass," said the abbe, "walk on .-cold, wet stones, or even on the snow. That is my remedy for those who are always taking cold." The abbe's treatment varies according to the malady, For some he prescribes Vapor baths, for others wet compresses, for others baths with oats or hay added to the water, etc. The water must be aa cold as possible, and in winter snow is preferred. But a cold bath must never last more than five minutes, including the time required for dressing and undressing, and the bather must never use towels, but always exercise for fifteen minutes after the bath. Friction only causes unequal circulation, but exercise produces a uniform heat, . Warm baths should always be followed by a plunge iu cold water. The good abbe says one must never drink too much • -water, and the least possible during re- pnsts. "Drink a little water before eating, very little while eating, and two or three hours after drink us much as you wish."—Paris Cor. New York World. AQ&tOTTI.'ntttAl, SOOtETY.

The sloop differs from the "cat" essentially A catboat is propelled by driving sail only; the sloop has both driving sail and pulling sail, for she carries, in addition to the mainsail of the catboat, a headsail called tho "jib." The mainsail, as you know, t«nds to "luff" the boat's nose into the wind, but the jib baa tha reverse effect and tends to force the bow off and away from the wind. Theso sails, if properly proportioned, cause the yacht to keep a straight course, to steei easily and to sail without burying hei head; for the jib lifts the bow, and the mainsail, being set back near the middlu of the boat, does not drive her "down by the eyes," as does the sail of a catboat In sailing a sloop, however, great care must be exercised for this little jib is H treacherous sail and will lead you into trouble if you do not understand it? wayward tricks. The rules for sloop sailing are briefly these: Before "going about" cast off tut) jib, before coming to anchor or rounding up to a mooring lower the jib, when a squall strikes cast off the jib. In fine, get rid of the jib first and work your boat with mainsail alone in all emergencies that occur when sailing to windward. In running before a strong wind a reefed mainsail and a full jib give the best results, an*l sloops are better than catboats when miming tree, because the jib counteracts t!ia tendency to luff, to steer hard and to roll, all of which traits are ever present in the frisky catboat Observe one rule at all times when Bailing a sloop: Never fasten the jib BO that it cannot instantly be cast off. Fastened jib sheets cause nearly all the capsizes which occur in sloop sailing.—F W. Paug'boru in St. Nicholas.
