wonderful aa are the troths that have
been discovered In the last (ew yesrs
and that are being discovered almost
every day now. Another liar, and one
Who held tbe palm not long ago. has
jlst been relegated into obscurity by
faot. He is the man who started the
story a (ew summers ago that the Ice
crop had been ruined by a new worm,
the ioe-werm. which burrowed In the
Ice and destroyed it In great quantities.
Like many wildly ridiculous things,
the tale had the ef net of startling news
at tret galence, sntl it was not till a
moment's thought had been given to it
that one discovered the (act that It
was a hoax. So it was passed along
cheerfully, and no doubt most readers
of the World have laughed over It.
And now eoraes dry, aolemn sen-
sation-hatiag science, and announces
that thore has been
In the United States several new species
of a worm called Messenchytroeus.
Atnl the worm with tbat hard name
is nothing mon or less than an ioe
worm, a worm that lives in and on
ice and show and diss if it is taken into a temperatun even a few degrees
liiirher than ia that of hia cold home.
Henry J. Bryant la the scientist who
has lound this new eroatun in tke ice
of the Malaaplna glacier on Hi
St. Ellas, The discovery waa made
during a long tenr of exploration of
the glacier of thia glsnt mountain and
the iitteution of the party wae first
called to tb* creatures by the sign of
ourlona patches on the white enow.
He aaye: "The snow-worms were first
observed a few hundred yards from
our first camp, on the edve of the snow,
mantle of the*glacier, which extended
to within a few .ntil.'. ul ih.'"-T-or-mtnai*
fhee ol the glacier. The snow lunatic,
which In places ����������. six or seven,.-feci
in (leptn, nan entirely dl.aiipeared, exposing the hard, compact ice of the
glacier. The elevation ol the first
snow camp was 620 feet above the sen
level. Here but few specimens of the
norms wen noted. At onr second
camp in the snow, elevation 1,2110
leet, they were abundant in iilaces, as
also at our next camp, elevation 1,6K0
toot, where thoir pres-'nee in lares numbers Irregularly dispersed prosented the
appearance of
on tiie snow. Our hase camp was on
a email expanse of snow-free ground
on the south slope of a range at an
altitude of 1,760 fert. A few worme
were observed on the ailjnccnt snow of
the main glacier at a somewhat lower
elevation: but I do not recall seeing
any representatives of this species on
nny of our excursions in the upper
snow fields of the reagon, During tbo
month of Jnne and early part of July,
while the snow is comparatively dry,
tbey appear about i .o'clock in tbe
afternoon on tbe surface and move
sluggishly about, their dark color being quite conspicuous againat the
white background. Tbey remain on
the surface during the night; but when
tho sun appears in tho mcrning they
again burrow into the snow. They were
widely distributed over the eotin snow
field of the glaoier, diminiehing in
number toward theedgee. Then waa
no uniformity iu their dispersion. We
did most of our sledging at night, and
frequently passed patohes ol aoow rt.*
oral hundred yard. In extent without
noticing any specimen., and then
would come to Irregularly defined
areas, which seemed to support col.
oniea of them, when the anow ahowed
shadowy, duetlike patcbee caused by
their presence In ooneiderahle numbers,
Ar showing their sensitiveness lo
heat, I frequently observed
aa soon at a piece of enow containing
thein waa taken lu hand. Later in the
season, when tbe melting ie (urther
advanced and the snow saturated with
moisture, the worme appear to become
mon active, and can be obeerved moving moving about in the shallow pools
and lakeleta which form en the surface
ol the glacier. When the enow entirely disappeared aud tho hard ice
surface of the glacier appeared, the
snow-worms wen obeerved in the
water which formed In tbe narrow
envaaaee. In my note* o{ August Snd
I find the following: 'Collected come
black worms to-day in a crack ol tbe
gtaoler���(ound tbem in the water of a
high, narrow crevaas*. Obeerved them
on the edge o( the submerged snow at
a depth of five (est Mew the surface.
Th* worme worn to hav* a browner
color then when band ra th* now
earlier in the season. Soma o( tbe
speoimeus I obtained had also distinct
whitish bande around their bodice.'
Thi* variation in color le noticeable io
the specimens collected in spring and
let* eummer. As may be suppoatd,
than la a marked abotnoe ���( animal
111* on th* surface of th* glacier whioh
ha* an estimated length of TO miles
aad a width of 25 or 30 milts. Wild
geese were found noting oa th* ter-
mlnal moraine near tha ooait la June.
The desolate monotony of the anow
horlxon waa broken only on two or
turn -M-Msieu by th* tpptarsac* tl
two species of Arctic gulls. Six species
of moths, (our species of spiders, one
new species, and a nnmber of Hies,
which include two or three new species
wate collected on the glacier.
The only Insect found associated
with the snow-worm was a minute
black tbyaanuran, which resembled at
first glance a flea. Those insects were
fonnd contlnnououaly and constantly
associated wilh the worms In the dry
snow, and, later on, In the pools of
water. They wero very active, and
leaped abont like flaaa. In no instance
wen lichens obeerved essoolated with
the worme, although at several localities on tbe glacier
on the snow Indicated the presence ol
the minute plants, whioh give rite t��
the 'red snow' frequently obeerved by
Artlo traveler*. Th* mean temperature of day and night on the expedition
ha* not yet been computed, bnt I
���hould estimate that tbo mean temperature at night was about 82 degrees
and in the day about 66 degrees." The
enow-worm lives and grows while
maintaining a bodily temperature
which can seldom vary mnch from the
(reeling point of water. According to
Ur. Bryant it lives during the summer
In the melting snow, and the water
derived therefrom which collects in
hollows and clefts in the Ice. During
the night, the period of It* activity,
when it comes to tho anrfsce of tbe
���now, th* mean temperature et the air
I* abont S3 degrees. When the sun
thines the worms descend into the melting snow���a veritable f reeling medium
which must keep their small bodies
continually chilled to Its own temperature. Professor Bussel, who also saw
the worme on the Halespina glacier,
confirms Mr. Bryant with this state
ment: "In the earlr morning before
rheeunlight touched the snow, its
surface was literally covered with
small, slim, black worms, about an
inch long. These creatures were wriggling on the snow in thousands; but
as the son rose and made its warmth
felt, they dissappearod beneath the
surface. Tbey are not seen when the
temperature Is above freaaing." Pr>

I suffered with diarrhoea for a long
time and thought I waa past being
cured. I had aiietit much time and
money and suffered so much misery
that I had almost decided to give up
all hopes of recovery and await the
resul', bnt noticing the advertisement
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy and also some testimonials stating how some wonderful
cures hnd beeu wrought by this remedy, I decided to try it. After takinga

the wrecking of a large ship laden

even for a few days at the present time

owners. Canadian owners will of
course lose less in proportion than the
Americans, and will not, of -course, be

comparatively small. The Canadian
Pacific railway Hns from Owen Sound

Coiue, now I" bo continued, straddling
Price's body and lifting him by tbe
shoulders. "It won't hurt but a minute
and you'll feel a heap better."
Henry winced with pain and sat back
against the tree with a gruau.
"Had it dressed?"
"No, nol" said Henry, with a gurgling in his speech.   "It's no use.   It's
iin inside,"saidSmith. "Isee.

Smith caught Spence by the arm and
held up a warning linger. At the aame
moment a mass of figures rose above
the brow of the hill, and two guns of
the cavalry with mounted cannoniers
came dashing down the slope with din
of galloping hoofs, jingling sabers and
clattering tools, through which the
heavy breathing of the horses could be
distinctly heard. A scramble down the
hill, a double rumble over the bridge
and presently ouly I he babbling of the
brook above an undercurrent of rapidly
retreating sound.
Tbe rush of the flying section quickened the pulses of the three men, and
the heavy silence that followed was
eloquent of peril, imminent if undefined. The horse, which had been frightened at first, sidled against the deaf
man and threw up his head with an
appealing whinny that was prolonged
in a succession of hoarse Heatings in
his throat and chest.
A heavy sigh came from the ground
where Price was lying. "Save yourselves, comrades," lie said. "It's a dying man against two useful Uvea. The
country needs"��� Here bis words ended
in a gurgling cough.
"I believe you, yonng feller," said
Smith, swinging his rifle to his shoulder and shoving up the bandage on one
side of his head. He had forgotten for
the moment that the clotted rag wu
not a cap, and the effect on his expression was grotesque in the extreme.
"Yon boys better get amove on'ye,"
he said as he started for the road.
There wae another rumble of wheels
and the shifting and turning of a pursuing section on tbe brow df the hill.
Thia time the black figures were swallowed up among the trees on the ridge
directly overhanging Price and the deaf
man. Smith dropped the butt of his gun
to the ground with an oath and came
back ou his toes, listening to the voices
ap above him and to the trampling In
the timber. When he heard the gun
trails fall on the hollow ground with a
rattle of chains, followed by the scrambling of teams and the bumping of
wheels over obstacles, he squatted down
ut his tracks without speaking, and the
deaf man, observing his action, lay
down by his side, keeping a hold on the
bridle reins.
The lid of a limber chest creaked and
fell with a bang. Somebody In authority swore frightfully. The twigs
crackled nnder running feet, and the
rammer heads beat on the shells like
striking blows with a wooden mallet In
a barrel.
One gunner cried, "Ready ���fire!"
Tbere wu a rushing overhead like the
passing ol a giant rocket, bnt this was
nothing to the strange vision tbat appeared to the eyes of the three men by
the brook.
A halo of light enveloped the gun and
showed tbe four numbers "broken
baok" outside the wheels. The arms of
the gunner were extended above hit
head like a letter Y. No. 1 with the
sponge, No. 2 over opposite, the man
with the thumbstall and the man
with the lanyard, which was still
writhing like a snake above hia head,
Sashed ont for an instant, revealing distinctly their solemn faces, and u the
light faded they sprang on the wheels
to roll the gun up from its recoil. Smith
Uttered a low exclamation of surprise
u the straggling agures melted into the
darkness, but Henry Price bounded
from the ground like a rubber ball and
yelled at the top of his voice, "Jim,
Jim Price!'* Even the deaf man heard
him and understood.
Henry's call was answered promptly
by a voice from the hill.
"Is thnt you, Hankt Well, Weill'"
And with the last word there waa the
crash of a body through the bushes,
which made it plain that Jim wu coming with leaps and bounds for an interview.
Such amuing activity in a dying
nun, coupled with tbe surprising events
which had preceded ond were following
it. struck Smith and Spence dumb.
They could only stare open mouthed at
the darning figure before them, uttering inarticulate sounds of joy whioh
served to guide Jim through the brush
lo his brother.
The otber gun wu fired at the instant Jim linvst on the scene, so that he
tenmed to be swept out of the darkness
hy the midcrcnrreiit of tbe shell that
rushed tlirongh the night overhead.
"Doggone iti" exclaimed Jim, shaking Henry's blind limply and experimentally, us though he doubted If it
were rent flesh uml blood. "I thought I
killed yon nlieu yon rolled down that
"Jim," said Henry, "I've tried my
best tu get killed ���tilt three days because
I thought I'd murdered you, and here

much n.i -tii-ink yuu.' "
"You're nnutlier," cried Jim.
"Sound as a nut and aggra.-atln to the
"I'm shot through the lungs," said
"Yuu are! Yuu ain't!" cried Jim.
"Let me fell of yon." And he began
fumbling abont Henry's breast. "You
fool, there ain't a scratch on you. You
always lied ton much imagination.
Co***io, sninrly, here's the ball rollln
about in the slack of yonr shirt above
your belt."
"The dencel" said Henry. "I ain't
wounded I"
"Strike mo dead," cried Smith, projecting himself iuto view with the gory
bauduge cocked over his right eye.
Jim bad believed that he wu alone
with bis brother, and at the appearance
of stich a menacing third party he took
a precautionary step backward.
"How are they at home, sonny t
How's mother's rheumatics?"
"Come and seel" cried Henry, and
with a quick leap he fastened his grip
on Jim's collar. At the same moment
the flying miction which had passed so
recently opened fire from the opposite
hill iu reply to the Confederate guns.
For a space the darkness overhead wu
streaked with burning fuses and between the shrieking of the shells and
the rour of tbe guns Smith wu unable
to catch a word cf the argument that
wsb passing between tbe brothers, who
were Hupping about the ground like two
chickens with their heuds chopped off.
As nature became exhausted, the two
combatants rested in each other's arms,
making an occasional spumodic flop
and then subsiding.
"I always was your match, Jim
Price," gasped Henry, "and now I
ain't wnnnded���like I-tlinna-.it J was���
I'll send you home to mother���if it
What the proviso was' did no. appear, for Henry's jerky sentence wu
swallowed up in the rush of two shells
trailing lire overhead, and the whites
of Jim's eyes looked bloodshot in the
light of the guns.
Henry never relaxed his grip on hia
brother nntil the firing ceased, and then
he handed his prisoner over to Smith
and deaf Spence, who tossed him on
the back of the hoif-p. Jim wu too exhausted to talk at first, bnt before the
party had proceeded far on tbe road he
began to remonstrate against snch un-
brotherly treatment.
"Now you shut np, Jim," said Henry. "If yon knew what I've been
through in the last three daye on account of yon, you'd know I'm fond of
you. I'm a little beat myself, bnt there
are some things I want yon to explain
to my captain."

week tbere occurred an incident In tho
real comedy vein which may be worth
Now, it happened that for once the
Imp and the infant were asleep simultaneously, and Mrs. Nuwed was entertaining a conpleof callers amid snch
unaccustomed peace and tranquillity
she could scarcely realise it, and was
constantly on the qui vlve for something to happen. Consequently a ring
at the doorbell gave her a nervous start
that completely severed the threads of

means of a push button tbat opens the
front doer.
So when Mrs. Nuwed's maidservant,
who combines the duties of cook, chambermaid and nurse, appeared to announce the visitor the ladies learned
that a smooth spoken Individual desired
to show the "lady of the bouso" some
very fine imported dress gooda Accordingly tboy decided to admit bim and
inspect bis warea, a species of dissipation which no woman can resist, be he
a peddler at tinware or a  -Mirreyor of
silks end laces. The three together decided that they were a match for any
fakir���and, by the way, it is now time
to introduce the other ladies as Mrs
Lafilu tad Mrs. Pearl.
The peddler proved to be a very suave
individual, with a alight Scotch accent,
and as he unrolled bis pack he proceeded
to unfold a very specious tale about
how he became possessed of these valuable goods and was able to offer them
to discerning ladiee tt surprisingly low
figures. According to tbis tale, be
bought them dirt cheap, owing to bla
connection with some English mills,
and the inference was that be had succeeded in sneaking them past Uncle
Sam'a customs collectors without paying the customary duty. Now, It ia a
atrange aad unexplained characteristic
of women tbtt nothing appeals to them
Ilka smuggled goods Consequently this
iugsnlous tale heightened the interest
in his warea, and when be unfolded
them it was to a chorus of ecstatic feminine squeals
They were very plsnsible looking
pieces of dress goods, with a fine glassy
finish like broadcloth, good selvage and
a yard and a half wide. All these points
were artfully suggested by the peddler,
although be permitted the ladies to
think that thsy had discovered tbem.
"Now, you know, of course, tbtt no
cheap gooda come in thia width," said
be oracularly, whereat each lady nodded
assent Indeed it may bo suspected that
thia peddler wu a bit of a hypnotist.
Of count the price wit tht next
thing asked, tad the artful peddler at
first mentioned a pretty stiff figure
.When the ladles drew back, ha admitted that as he wis anxious to return to
Ihe old country, he wonld entertain
propositions looking toward tctliag
down tht original price. At the stmt
timt hi took occasion to mention thtl
ht hid sold to Mrs. Senator O'Grady a
piece of goods exactly like the one offered for a greatly advanced price.
Then ensued a chattering and bargaining which, it may also he noted, it in-
other delight of tht feminine soul
Then wu one piece of black gooda
which all tht ladies coveted, but Mra
Paul wu this >nt to make ta offer for
it. to tht otbera ut back and left tht
field to her. The price gradually diminished from $0 to $8 for a piece of five
yarda, tad tn ruching thit litter figure
the peddler throw ap hia hands despairingly tnd declired he oould reduce it no
Encouraged by tht lucceae of Mra
Purl In btating down the peddler, the
other ladlw tried a few panes at him,

Pearl became panic stricken, explaining
that It wu a piece of extravagance on
her part, and that aha had expended on
this piece of goods, which sbe could not
possibly use beforo next fall, a large
part of her weekly allowance. Shi likewise declared that tht wu tfrtid to tak.
It borne leet her busbsnd should up*
braid her. Accordingly, aha agreed to
liave it with Mra. Nnwed for t day or
two, nntil aha conld smuggle it lioma
And this is bow Mra Nnwed came to
covet her neighbor's goods. By the time
Mr. Nuwed ctmt homt to dinner tht
hid inspected that piece of "brotd-
cloth" tt lent a down times, ind with
each Inspection her desire to possess It
became overpowering.
80 wben Mr. Nnwed, tired and hungry, did arrive he wat treated to a
rhapsody on this particular piece ol
"broadcloth" aad was silently voted
tn unfeeling brute by bis gentle spouse
because be preferred corned beef and
cabbage to contemplation of Its manifold beauties. After dinner and with
lighted cigar between bla llpa lie assumed ��� judicial aspect and proceeded
to examine tbe cloth. Mrs. Nnwed displayed it in all lights, draped It over
her shapely person dresawise and expatiated upon its beautiful gloss, Itt
great width and its eminent desirability
ti a spring gown. Then, of course, sht
explained how ehe "really had nothing
to wear," which wu something .of a
revelation to Mr. Nuwed. who recalled
some recently paid dressmaker's' bills
tnd could aot remember having seea
hia sponse in the role of beauty unadorned. However, like a wise husband, ht said nothing on this score
and contented himself with trying to
tear tbe cloth, after which he decided
that it was pretty good stuff.
This was really all be knew about
dress goods, but he argued from tbt
���tandpoint of common sense that there
must be something queer about aman'a
telling goods at less than coat. Incidentally it may be mentioned that Mr.
Nnwed had been bitten by one of thou
Cuban cigar peddlers, although, of
course, be kept this fact secret from hit
wife, bnt it served to cut bis eyeteetb,
and be applied the lesson to tbe "broadcloth" peddler. According to his diagnosis, the mm wu either a smuggler
and liable to the law or a thief, la
which case Mra Nuwed might be relieved of the goods by the police. If not
euspected of receiving stolen goods, or
a plain everyday fakir, with a new
voMion "of tho Cuban cigar game.
Neither of tbe first two argument,
appealed to Mrs. Nuwed, for by that
ume barbaric trait of femininity al-
ready mentioned the sex seems to delight in a slight flavor of lawlessness.
As for ths Insinuation that It might be
1 "phony" piece of gooda, indeed aba
declared she wonld Irnst her own cyet

make overturn to Mrs. Pearl for tht
Snrcbaat of the goods, and the best Mr,
in wed conld dowu to persuade her
to take a cample of it to some reliable
ttort to be tested.
Accordingly tbe next morning Mra
Nuwed sallied down town with a piece
of the coveted goods In her pocket. She
felt a guilty sensation every time iht
Rested a policeman, md hid the sample
> her deepest pocket lest it should

where the utuslly does her trading and

The manufacture of wall paper is
singularly interesting. First, a web of
blank paper is set in a reel behind a
blotching machine; two cylinders hriuj-
tbe free end of the paper Into th*> ma
chine, where a roller working in a coloi
pan puts a large quantity of color upon
the paper In blotches* Then a set of flat
brushes, called jiggers, brush quickly
back and forth, thus spreading the coloring matter evenly over the surface of
the paper.
As the paper comes from the blotching maohino a workman takes one end
of It, wrape tt aronnd a stick and placet
the stick acrosa two parallel endless
chains, and the paper Is thus carried np
an incline When 18 feet of It has run
ont, the chains take up another stick
tbat lies across them and carry it np as
they did the flnt stick. A third stick
soon follows the second, and thus the
work oontinnee nntil the enti-.-o web of
paper hu been run out of the blotching
The chains in their working hang the
paper tn loops over a system of steam
pipes, and it* ia thns thoroughly dried
befon it reaches the end of the chain-
work, where it is again wound into
web form.
Wall paper designs are first sketched
on paper and then transferred to rollers
of the sixe required. It Is necessary to
prepare u many rollers u then aro
colon in the design. Thus, if tbe design requires printing in eight colore,
eight rollers muM be prepared.
When all of the rollers are ready, the
artist direct! his workmen, and each
one la given a color. A workman to
whom that color hu been given takes a
roller to his bench, sets tt firmly in the
grasp of a vise, and, with hammers,
files, brass ribbons and brass rods, goes
to work. Every bit of tbe design that
Is to be in green is traced ont for him,
and he carefully reproduces it in relief
on the roller.
Wben his work is finished, the roller
beon on ita face, in raised brass, green
stems, leaves, etc, and at the proper
time and placo will put tbe green coloring and shading just where the designer intended it should be. In like manner the other rollers are made ready for
use, and they are then taken to a press
that hu a large cylinder of tbe width
of ordinary wall paper. There are
grooves aronnd the sides and the bottom of thit cylinder, into which are fitted the rods on the ends of the rollers,
and when in position the faces of the
rollers just touch the cylinder. An end-
leea cloth band comes to each of the
rollers from below (each band works in
a color, pan), which contains in liquid
form the coloring matter to be carried
on the roller to which the band belonga
Each roller is placed In snch position
that the part of the design upon it will
strike exactly la the spot necessitated
bythe relative position of the other
When all ia ready, the paper tbat hu
passed through the blotching machine
is placed between the cylinder and the
first roller, tbe cylinder and the rollers
revolve rapidly, and soon tbe paper ia
beautifully printed. At each of the end-
lees cloth bands there Is a steel scraper

How Kollenlte Explode..
Tests made with the new explosive,
kallenltc, tbow that it hns some properties of marked superiority to dynamite.
Instead, for exnuiple, of being largely
composed of au Incombustible, linsellke,
Infusorial earth, eucalyptus leaves and
titreo bark ara used, these containing
a large quantity of gas and their combustion adding to the force of the explosion. Tbe whole coiupouud, in fact,
Is explosive, and this, It is claimed, Increases Its efficiency and economy tt
tbe ume time.
In tome experlmenti at Sydney, at
noted In Tbe Mining Journal, four
hotel were drilled to a depth of 10 feet,
and each wu charged with 12 pounds
of the kallenltc; the charge wat fired by
electricity and dislodged with comparatively slight upheaval tome 200
cubic yards of stone; thero was little
noise pnd hardly nny perceptible smoke
or fumes. These qualities, It is thought,
Indicate thnt kallenltc Is a desirable

thein Is tho lost note, uttered wben he
loses sight of bis mother or finds himself
out In the cold. It is loud nnd very
shrill. The second, tbe hunger note, is ai
shrill, but more plaintive. As soon as
eating begins it changes to a sort of satisfied chlttcring.
After cntlHg they grow sleepy and cry
to be hovered. Th? note is somewhat
like thnt of hunger, with a peculiar tremolo breaking It In tbe middle. Very
rarely do the mothers disregard It, though
they may be eager to go foraging over
grass plots or down hedgerows.
The fifth note, the chir-r of fright or
astonishment, is the quaintest of nil.
The chicks themselves appear to find
something in It distinctly humorous.
When they are a few days old, If a big,
wriggling worm or a fat, juicy bug be
thrown to tbem witb their usual food,
they will first draw ntsoy from it, chir-r-
ring In concert then, after eying it a
minute, seize upon it aud toss It about
with faint, immature chuckling cackles.
This chir-r develops at last in the grating
call of warning, ut souud of which from
tbeir mothers even tbe youngest scatter
aud scuttle to cover.
Anything, a bird, a kite, even a very
small passing cloud sailing in the sky
overhead, will evoke tbis warning cry.
Let one ben sound It, and every other
hen will take it up. Often, oftener than
not, Indeed, the nlarm is n false one, but
centuries of hawks hnve impressed upon
each feathered mind tbnt "danger cometh
out of the air,'' and tbey govern them'
selves accordingly.
Everybody knows how bens cluck to
their broods, but It may be news to mnny
that though 100 hens may be clucking
in the same luclosure the voice of each
will be Individual and unmistakable to
ber immediate family. A chick just out
of the nest may not be able to discriminate, but let bim follow for a dny, and
he ts past making uilsuiKus.
Even more wonderful Is the ben's nbil-
Ity to differcutlnte her brood from all the

this often leads to pitiful barnyard tragedies. An Intruder, feeding peacefully

A cock, especially a gamecock, or one
of Spanish breed, has a wonderful variety of crows. By means of them, Indeed,
he runs the whole gamut uf expression-

It Is the hens without families, though,
thai are the true barnyard gossips. Any
fine day, outstde molting time, you may
see them standing In groups, their heads
close together, clucking and chattering
like so mnny blackbirds, or else wallow*

because microbes will get after you. If

It sure to get It Micro organisms of the

pieces than anywhere else���almost. The
nnmber of bacteria found on the surface

To show the harmful results tbat may
occur from this, doses of from one to five
cubic centimeters are Inoculated Into tbe

by a French physician death waa sometimes very rapid, with symptoms of acutt

There are other ways to court Ills than

A good way to develop paralysis of tht

when you feel rutty. Hot water opens
up tbe pores of the skin and permits the
face to become chilled suddenly. Thit
brings on paralysis. Very hot towels will
