A LittI* AdviMs to the Gffettt Atnit of Sttffeftfe** Pfom Dr»pep«lft. A physician, writing in the J?bl\&- delpbia Inqairer on "Foods and Their Effect on the Human System, " says! That oat of sorts feeling from wbioh inofit of as suffer half the days of our life is Usually due to our eating things We shouldn't. Althongh we are con- etrnoted on the same model, scarcely any two people have exactly the same kind of heart, liver and other organs, and os a result nothing is truer than the saying that "One man's meat is another man's poison." Meat, for instance, is a slow poison to a number of individuals. If there is a goaty strain in your family, yon are storing np future torture for yourself every time yon eat a chop or piece of beef. Goat is simply the result of too much nrlo acid in the blood, and meat is fall of the material from which uric aoid is made. You may think that so long as you have not to sit in an easy chair all dny there is no need for precautions in diet. But the first symptoms are always mild, and if you feel irritable and unable to settle down to work you had better be careful bow much meat you eat. Englishmen are said to be, the Worst tempered people on earth. They are also the moat gouty, and there can be no doubt that they are the greatest meat eaters. Nothing is more nourishing than sugar, yet it is, absolutely;, poison to those who are 'prone to diabetes, and any one inclined to corpulency should regard it as a natural enemy. Two lamps of sugar per day in excess of the quantity required by the body would add 00 pounds to a man's weight in five years — that is, of course, if he had the eort of constitution that easily puts on flesh. But it is not sugar alone which is injurious to diabetic and stout people, The former should not look at porridge, rice, beet root, Spanish onions, port •wine, mm or ginger beer; the latter should take neither soup, beer, potatoes nor treacle, while gouty people should not touch peas or beans. If any near member of your family has St; Vitus' dance or epilepsy, you should eat meat very sparingly and grapes not at all, while you might as well think of committing suicide as frequenting the barroom. For dyspeptics it is impossible to say '•what food is good, because everything is bad. White bread remains undigested for hours, brown bread is most irritating and injurious, vegetables are converted into gases and painful acids, and most kinds of meat are too heavy. The dyspeptic, in fact, ought never to have been 'born. • However, since the sufferer from dyspepsia must eat, let him follow this rule, and it may bring relief: Eat a little of everything, but eat sparingly, never leaving' the table with a sense of having eaten sufficient; eat slowly. Masti- oateiall food thoroughly and never drink while eating. If he must drink, let him drink after he has finished eating. ..Ho doubt the majority of people see no connection between . their ailments and;the breakfast or dinner which they •have enjoyed. But there are many per•sons who are so severely affected by particular articles of diet that there is no question about the fact that some kinds iof food are more or less poisonous to .us ;all,. although we may not suffer very i greatly after eating them. An acquaintance of the writer's, for example, fulls iinto convulsions if he eats a single strawberry, and even the odor of straw! berry jam in the neighborhood of jam factories almost throws him into a fit. The writer knows a lady whose heart ! comes to a stop if she eats an egg. Of '.course she never intentionally eats one jnow, but frequently on taking a piece [of cake or some kind of pudding. or i sauce containing eggs she swoons. Many people get cramp in the stomach from eating honey, aud more than one death has resulted from this cause. Others are made violently sick by the smell of apples, aud a patient of the writer's has often averred that even the i eight of beet root seemed to suffocate him, while another had to give up 1 drinking milk because it produced in- j tense inflammation of the eyes. Many kinds of fish cause serious ill iness. Lobsters and crabs produce most 'painful itching in some people, and the writer has known several who after eati ing salmon felt a horrid taste in tup itnoutb, and soon after suffered so badly irom headache as to be compelled to go '•to bed, i These latter are the extreme instances of injury from food, but they prove that/ thousands of people suffer in a less dej ,gree, and that probably no one. can jlunoh or dine without swallowing sorne- >'ining poisonous to his system. tit* lto**oo*« "Although f sold tickets in a red Cir 6ns 1 wagoftifot.^ats,^ -continued the dime ronseim ,ttan, SI was -bad!? fooled onoe in an ftnimal deal. 1 mean .by. this that 1 fooled myself. I got a letter from a collector, Who ,want,ed to know if I would buy a.mongdose. I Wrote back to have it shipped at once, and 4t was to be in the museum ready for exhibition one Monday morning. I had a rather hazy idea of what the beast looked like, but 1 was Bare that it was something big, with tasks, and t told our artist to go ahead on that idea and spread himself. "He did. The picture he evolved Would catch any one's eye at any range. Be took a whole frame of canvas and painted for a background a tropical island, with the mongoose chewing up sailors on the shore. "The picture was finished Sunday, and I couldn't help but rub toy hands when I looked at it. The moment it was hung out people flocked around it, and the early, morning attendance Monday was remarkable. The doors were opened before I got down, and as I went np stairs I could hear a subdued growl. " 'That's the mongoose,' I said to myself. 'The idiots haven't fed it.' "It wasn't the mongoose. It was the crowd growling like a Roman mob behind the scenes. They had been lured by the picture, and when they got to the cage labeled 'Mongoose' they could not see the beast at all) It had buried itself in the straw. "—Chicago Tribune. The Leonard and the Fan. One day a worthy iKulu housewife came out from her cooking and, standing on the ledge of rock at her door, emptied a pan of boiling water into the rank herbage growing below. It fell* splash, on the back of, a sleeping; leo pard, who jumped perpendicularly into the air as high as the roof of the hut. What might have happened next? Who can say? But the astonished woman dropped the pan with a clang upon the rock, and the leopard took one leap down, bill. The pan followed, and the leopard's downward leaps became longer and swifter;as the pan bounded aft er it from rook to rock. Wheu last seen the leopard had jnsl achieved a leap of about 860 feet to the very bottom of the ravine, thousands o: feet below, aud the pan had whirlec about 600 feet over it on to the opposite side. The leopard would have eaten the old woman with pleasure, but a pan which first scalded half the hide of! him and then bounded clanging in his wake from the top of the Himalayas to the plains below was something which he could not face.—Good Words. *W* paltry earth and the low hung »ky, litke a little tent around It, Tb-o cramped I flhd to feel at hofte.

Of course there are some letters which are not very prolific in the names of great, men, but we think most of our readers will be surprised to see how many of the most illustrious names in history are included and how few are excluded. •,.-•., In some oases the compiler seems to have selected .names quite as much with a view- to comprehending in the list men of many countries, as because the name given was that of the greatest man of his time. The list follows: Aristotle, Baoo, Confucius, Darwin, Ezra, Franklin, Goethe, Homer, Isaiah, Justinian, Kant, Luther, Mohammed, Newton, Ossiau, Plato, Quintillian, Rousseau, Shakespeare, Tasso, Uhland, Virgil, Washington, Xavier, Young, Zoroaster.—London Globe. skipper, __- . . _ . a clear day and wrecked oil a course as clear as the day in the hands of a pilot that knows the ground like a book we naturally wonder a little and want to know the whys and wherefores. Such was the case of the propeller Susan B. Peck that went aground near Bar point and was lost with a $20,000 cargo. "The captain of the Susan E. had sailed, successfully hundreds, of times between Point Pelee and Bar point and in all kinds of weather, and thia time be had a wheelman who was known from cue end of the lake to the other as one of the most expert navigators in the lake business. He had been lying up.a long time, for the very good reason that owing to an accident to one of his legs that leg had to be amputated to save his life. The lost member was replaced by an artificial leg, and then the pilot was ready to take his post at the wheel agaiu. His first service after hi. misfortune wns this trip of the Snsuu E. Peck, and he ran her aground. "The puzzle to everybody was how it was possible for the propeller, handled by a mau of such skill and experience, on a straight course only 40 miles long and with every sailing condition favorable, to leave her course. The pilot was the most puzzled and astounded person of all. He soon got another vessel, and this cue he ran in such an erratic .manner, but fortunately,with no disastrous result, that .he was compelled to give her up, and his usefulness as a pilot was gone. He and others went to investigating to see if they could discover what .was wrong with his seamanship. "After awhile they discovered what hey believed was the trouble. In the ilot's artificial leg a great deal of steel ad been used in the joints and other jlaces. Sitting close to the binnacle, as he did while steering, this steel deraug- d the compass EO that it threw the vheelmau way off his reckoning and ed to the wrong piloting that . (lad wrecked the Susan E. Peck and endangered the. other vessel that the wheel- nan navigated subsequently. This was what they argued, and to demonstrate he correctness of the theory the piloj; oqk charge of a vessel without wear; ng his false leg. Everything worked to a charm. The mystery of the Susan E. 'eck was solved, and the pilot .was restored to his old place in the confidence of Lake Erie skippers and vessel owners."—New York Sun. B* Ofc*y*« Order*. Years ago, when Qlemencefln was the inayor bit Martre and at the same time a deputy, he opened a dispensary in the quarter, where advice was given free, lor Olernenoean is a specialist in skin diseases. One day be noticed that he had just one hoa* in which to get his luncheon and go down to the chamber, Where he had to interpellate the government. He called his assistant and said, "How many" more patients are there waiting?" "Six," replied the man. ; One after the other had his case diagnosed, nnd. Oleraenceatt, after another glance at his watch,, said, "Tell the other two to undress at once, as I have only two more minutes to wait." One entered, and Olemenoeau wrote out a prescription in the twinkling of an eye. The last man came in as naked as the day when he was born. Olernenceau eyed him for a minute and then said; "Yon are suffering from no skin disease. W.hat have yon come here to worry me, for?" The man looked at him aghast for a minute'and replied: "Skin disease? I never said I bad a skin disease. Your man came in and told me to undress, M. le Depute, and I did so. All I wanted to ask you was to use your influence to get my sister a place in the post- offices in Algeria." Olemenceau smiled, took his name and did use his influence.—Today. DmiBCrH of Laughter. It is surprising to learn from the highest medical authority in Euglanc that laughter may be injurious. Laughter in itself, says the British Medical Journal, cannot very well kill but it may do harm. Hysterical girli and boys with kindred nervous affeo tions are often given to immoderate laughter, which tends to increase uerv ous exhaustion. Dr. Feilohenfeld relates an iustruo tive case in which a little girl suffer01 from very definite oardiao symptom after immoderate laughter. Thepatien was 18 years old and had previously been free from any sign of heart dis ease. After laughing on and off t'o nearly an hour with some companion she suddenly felt stabb.iug pains in th chest and was seized with fits of cough ing, followed by cardiac dyspnoea, ver well marked. Feiloheufeld believes tha the cardiac disease directly resulte from immoderate laughing. t to Traffic. ^-A railway carriage.

From the small island of St. Kild off Scotland, 20,000 young gaunets an an immeuse number of eggs are auuua Jy collected, and although this bird lay only one egg per annum and is fou years inobtainjug its maturity itsuum bora do not diminish. Obviously sue birds must reach a great age, or the would long agq have been exterminated The deserts of Arabia are special! remarkable for their pillars of saud Which are raised by whirlwinds an have a very close resemblance iu thai appearance to waterspouts. $a,t up difficult is ttje at South America's Suicide Wind. In Brazil and other parts of South America the natives know and fear a certain condition of the air which they call "suicide wind." It. is not a superstition, but an actual condition of the atmosphere which seems to drive the people to madness, and during its continuance self inflicted deaths are numerous. Orirninologists aud scientists all over the world are interested in this peculiar atmospheric influence, which is indicated by a soft, moist, warm air that settles heavily on the earth, The climatic condition known as the "suicide wind" is greatly dreaded in that part of the country. Statistics prove that suicides and other crimes occur together or in waves as they are described. The Moral In Plain. "Once upon a time," says the Houtzdale (Pa.) Journal, "a man got mad at the editor and stopped the paper. In a few weeks he sold his corn at 4 cents less than the market price. Then his property was sold for taxes because he didn't read the sheriff's sale. He paid $10 for a lot of forged notes that had been advertised two weeks and the public warned against them. He then rushed to the printing office and paid several years' subscription in advance and hud the editor sign an agreement that he was to knock him down if he ordered his paper to be stopped again." How Far Can Quail FlyT A number of ; sportsmen bav.e been discussing .the question of how far a quail can fly. There are a good many contingencies to be considered in arriving at a definite conclusion of the question, the which outs no inconsiderable figure in the distance one of these birds can fly. If there is a stiff wind blowing and the birdls course is with the wind, a full grown quail could certainly go more than a mile with ease and doubtless a.much greater distance. Those who have,noticed quail trying to fly across the Missouri river, where the distance is about a mile, recall that not all the birds make the trip safely. They usually pick a spot where they can make a halt on a sand bar in midstream, and thus cross the river in two flights. But sometimes they make the. distance at a single flight, and this seems to be their full limit under normal conditions, for when they alight they are completely exhausted. It is generally, believed that on an average a mile is about the limit of the flight of a quail where it is neither favored nor retarded by the wind. It happens very often that in crossing the Missouri river at a single flight quail drop exhausted into the water. Probably these are young birds.—St. Louis Eeppblio. ' Raisins His Fare. A certain board school teacher is responsible for the following littlo story, which is not without its pathetic side. 'He was endeavoring to explain the term "booking" as applied to our railway system. "Now," he was saying, "can any of you tell me the name of the office at which railway tickets are sold?" "The booking office," replied one of the lads. "Eight," responded the teacher. At this moment his eye fell on a small boy at tbe end of the class, who was evidently paying very little attention to what was said. "Did you hear that, Dowser?" he demanded. "Wot, sir?" asked that youth innocently. "As I thought, you were not listening. We will suppose that your father decided to have a day's holiday and visit the seaside. What would he have to do before he could take his seat in the train?" Without a moment's thought the youngster electrified his teacher by replying, "Pawn his tools."—London Standard. A Decidedly Worfel CJotnt. A claim once made on the explorer. Cameron, iii the neighborhood of Ga- boon, Africa, 'shows the peculiar workings of the native African's mind. Some of Cameron's possessions proved unduly attractive to a native, and he determined on transferring the ownership to himself. He accordingly paid another native $200 to procure for him the coveted goods. The assistant took the money and aid his best to earn it, bat Mr. Cameron had perversely looked up the very articles that tbe fellow's employer had set his heart upon. The man could not carry out his bargain, and neither did he feel that he could paftwith the money Therefore he ran off with it. What more logical than that the man who Was the loser by $200 should expect the explorer to make the Joss good? This he assuredly did expeo):. He went to Mr. Cameron and told him the story, demanding in the first place the $200 which , he, Oa.meron, by looking up his goods, had compelled tbe complainant to lose, and, secondly, the actual price of the goods themselves, which, but for these arbitrary measures, would now have been in his possession, It is not stated that his expectations were realized.—Watchman. Sterno's Deatitntlon. Laurence Sterne, the writer, was the victim of tb« intensest poverty. A little time before his death, being in a state of destitution, he went one evening to borrow £5 from his friend Garriok Upon arriving, he heard music and knew that a party was going on. H heard the merry laughter, aud, gently replacing the uplifted knocker, retraced his steps. We never feel our miseries so keenly as when contrasted with the joys o others, and it is only then that wo re alize Wordsworth's picture: And homeless near a thousand homes I stood And near a thousand tables pined for food. Another story of this writer does no evoke so much sympathy. It was knowi that Sterne used his wife very ill, an in talking with Garriok one day in fin sentimental style of conjugal love, an fidelity he said, "The husbaud who behaves unkindly to his wife deserves to have his house burn down over bis head." "If yon think so," said Garriok quietly, "I hope yours is well insured." RAILWAY TIME CARDS. S 3 CHICAGO, MILWAUKEE & ST. PAUL. tOOAt TRAINS WEST.

She not only keeps them in their pristine condition, but converts them into all sorts of other things, such as photograph frames, workbaskets, and some are even used for the purpose of holding flowerpots.

"Thank you," said Emerson slowly, "but it is for some of the things I have tot said that I feel most grateful." Unhappy Hindoo Women. The Hindoo holy books forbid a woman to see dancing, hear music, wear jewels, blacken her eyebrows, eat dainty food, sit at a window or view herself in a mirror during the absence of her husband and allow him to divorce her if she has no sous, injures his property, scolds him, quarrels with another woman or presumes to eat before he has finished his meal.
