Pressed down by the rising river and too rotten to support the tremendous pressure of millions of tons of ice behind it, the gorge is steadily giving way and it is but a question of a few hours befora the channel will be once more unblocked. Up the river a,t the water works the grinding ice floes pile up in heaps thirty feet high as the gorge slowly moves down the river. The movement is for only a short distance each time, but unless the weather turns colder the rising waters will soon float the ice over the sandbars. This afternoon the natural bridge gave way and the river is now full of floating ice.

Regular ^ gopds but owing to the lateness of season will be placed On Sale at 50 Cents. The constitutional differences and peculiarities which exist among individuals shouid alwajs be carefully watched aud considered. One person can handle poison ivy with impunity while another is poisoned if only ia the vicinity of tho vine and without contact. Some members of a family residing in a malarial district wil suffer regularly with chills and fever, while other members will not bo at all affceted. Food that is actually poisonous lo some persons will not act BO on others. One person may eat all kinds of green fruit and vegetables with impunity, while another person could do so only at the risk of life. Certain kinds of Qsh are actually poisonous to Borne people and perfectly harmless to others. Itisthio peculiar condition of the system which coustitutes the danger point in the individual case and should be prudently observed by each one for himself. Intestinal derangements frequently arise from and are aggravated by certain kinds of food. Thua a person affected with kidney or liver trouble should not eat very white bread, since the extreme whiteness is often produced by the use of alum with an inferior article of Hour, and as alum is known to be poisonous in its effects on a sound constitution, this is why alum baking pdSvder is never used by people of judgment and discretion. More of earthly happiness depends upon what wo eat than many people realize and it ia for this reason that the different slates aro one by ouo passing pure- food laws. Anll-lo\in.
