A Sucr-estlon a* to Row to Guard Against
the Trouble aad Ms Pernicious After
Every winter influenza, or as it is
more generally known, the grip,
makes its appearance in Canadu.
Every few years it spreads nnd assumes alarming proportions. Ki'orri
all appearances this is one of the
years in which it will seize upon a
great number of victims, lor every
day new cases are reported. As in
scarlet amd typhoid fever, the after
effects of grip are often worse than
the disease itself. The sufferer is left
with a'debilitated system, short of
breath upon the slightest exertion,
subject, to headache and heart palpitation, affected by every change in
the weather, and in a physical condition to invito the attack of more
serious diseases, such ns imeuinonia
nnd consumption.
A timely suggestion as to how lo
enable the system to resist the inroads nnd its after effects, is given
by Mrs. Emma Dourelt, St. lOulalle,

Ihe native* of Alaska are a fast
dwl: illng race. Their sun 1* setting.
Probably their midday sun never rose
higher than tbe midwinter sun rises in
this latitude.
Most of tbe Eskimos in Alaska are
gathered at the missions, but tbe traveler will find a few in villages of two
or three ot half a dozen igloos In places
convenient for fishing, as nsh Is the
staple diet of these people. Starvation
and disease have left but a remnant of
once populous tribes.
Contact with the white race bas bad
a great deal to do with their deterioration. Tbey like whisky, and like all
other native races are not naturally Industrious. Before the coming of tbe
white man stern necessity made them
provide for the Immediate future. The
sen supplied them with most of their
food, and there were wild berries and
various kinds of game on tbe land to
vary their Ush diet By instinct Inherited from a long line ot ancestors
tbey are fishermen and hunters, but by
contact with tbe Caucasian they are
makers of curios and traders. In their
new avocations they hare become dependent to a great extent upon the
white people.
But tbe higher race Is not responsible
for all their ill*. The insanitary state
In which tbey live ls not conducive to
longevity. The impure air in the native
winter huts, tbe lack of personal cleanliness uud much of tbe food tbe native
eats would shorten the days of the
hardiest people.
The Kskluio has some qualities of
Character to be admired. He bas often
shared his last bit of food with starving prospectors or wrecked sailors. He
Is bright and ingenuous, simple minded
as a child, with a happy disposition
that takes no I bought of tbe morrow.
He Is bad only when under the influence of liquor.
The government should make some
provision for tbe Eskimo. He can be
made self supporting, possibly a contributor to the wealth of the world, by
placing him in a line of work for which
nature has fitted him. Provide him
with modern appliances and means for
fishing and whaling and with proper
management he will become a producer
of wealth.

Mrs. Philip was suffering from

In Grace Hospital tlio doctors wished to operate on her but she object-
oil, and leaving tho hospital called in
another doctor. He told her at one*
lhat she bad Uright's Disease nnd
had her removed to the General Hospital. The doctors here demurred to
1111 operation on account of the danger.
On being discharged a. second time

Dodd's Kidney Pills. The result is
that to-day all the terribfe swelling

In an interview Mrs. Philip spoke

have done me a world of good. The

iBsjenlona Invention of ss Vrc-eksaalsi
Hs_ Lips nnd Teeth,
A talking machine tbat ha* created
do little sensation ls that jnst produced by Dr. R, Murage, a well known
member of the French Academy of
Medicine. It 1* an interesting device,
Which reproduces with perfect accuracy
the sounds of the human voice, nqt, as
In the case of the phonograph, by merely repeating words spoken by persons,
bnt by a process which ls purely mechanical from start to finish and In
which no word is spoken by any human being. The sounds are produced
by a system of vibration, says the London Sketch. Attached to the machine
ls a series of plaster heads, five in all,
representing the five vowels, a, e, 1,
o, u. They are each a perfect model
of a person's mouth, fitted witb pliable
lips and perfect teeth. Air currents'
set in motion by the machine are made
to pass through the dummy mouths,
which are fitted with sirens.
Through his invention Dr. Marage
has discovered that tbe steam slreus
used on board ships can be bo constructed as to Imitate certain sounds.
Thus different phonetic syllables may
be obtained which could be used to
form an International alphabet. By
an ingenious contrivance attached to
this wonderful instrument it is possible
to see' reflected in a tiny mirror the
vocal chords of a singer. ,
By the same device one can also
trace their action and see how, as the
note gets higher, the aperture between
them becomes less und less, until when
the top note is readied It Is almost
closed. As Ihe force of air current expelled becomes stronger the opening
decreases in size. It increases us tbe
force becomes less. The smaller tbe
aperture the greater the vibration.
This is how human beings get their
singing voices. "There is. no mystery
about It," declares Dr. Marage. "It 1*
a purely mechanical process, based on
known laws of higher mechanics."

Sir Mortimer Duranil. the new ambassador to Washington, lias always

a grave, dignified and very polite,
though somewhat distant, manner, but
In reality he possesses a most genial
disposition and is gentle and tender
hearted as a woman. I have often
thought be assumed this rather
haughty demeanor in order to protect
his too vulnerable good nature from
being constantly assailed. In any case,
lt stood him In good stead in his relations with orientals of the first rank,
who despise levity of manner in high
officials. Sir Mortimer loveB sport and

Carton. Collector..
The Parisian ragpicker is a well
known character to all wbo have traversed tho streets of that capital at
night, but he has a colleague concerning whom little is said or known—the
dead dog and old cork collector. Why
these two industries should go together
Is Inexplicable even to the men themselves, but such is the case. Dead dogs
are by no means bad property. Tho
skin fetches from twopence to threepence when It has not become deteriorated by long residence In the water,
the fat is worth fivepence per two and
one-third pounds, aud the bones also
sell for a trifle. The corks are by no
means so valuable, as after they have
been cleaned und pared they only sell
for iivepence a hundred. The profession is ouly sufficiently lucrative to
maintain a few members, 2 francs a
day being the nverage gain, who reside

There are three great railroad lines
that show the climatic problems that
engineers have lo solve in building—
tlie new tninscanada road, traversing
hig.'.i northern latitudes; the trunsaus-
tralla road, running through an arid
region, and the Uganda road, which
traverses a tropical country. In high
latitudes many difficulties bave to be
overcome, among them being the effects of mountain sickness on the workmen. In rainy regions floods and landslides must be provided against, and
the early decay of ties, sleepers and
bridge material. In dry countries it ls
necessary to provide water, to guard
against fire, against sand storms and
against many other things that the
passengers, riding in the luxurious curs,
never think of.

Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription
restores weak and sick women to sound
health, by curing the local womanly dis- j
cases which are generally responsible for
the failure of the general health. A woman's entire being is centered in her womanly nature. When the delicate womanly
organism is attacked by disease; when
there is irregularity or a disagreeable drain;
when inflammation burns and ulcers gnaw,
the general health will reflect the progress
of disease, in increasing weakness, nervousness, backache, headache, loss of appetite and sleeplessness.
So sure of it is the World's Dispensary
Medical Association, of Buffalo, N. Y., proprietors of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, that they offer $_oo reward for women
who cannot be cured of Leucorrhea, Female weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling of
Womb. All they ask is a fair and reasonable trial of their means of cure.
