Why  Women Are Nervous.
(British Medical News.)
The frequedt cases of nervous prostration or utter collapse of the nervous
system under which women "go all to
pieces," as the saying is, have cause-
much thought and investigation on the
part of physicians.
Certain inorganic substances are
well known to cause various forms of
nervous diseases which are readily
traced to the poisons producing them.
Further research leads to the belief
that alum is a prevailing cause of so-
called nervous prostration, for tho
symptoms it produces on the nervous
system' after' its absorption into the
blood arfe -very remarkable indeed. Experiment- physiologically made upon
animals by Orflla, Professors Hans
Mayer, Paul Seim and others, show
that alum frequently produces no visible symptoms for many days after it-
Introduction into the body. Then follow loss of appetite and other alimentary disturbances, and finally a serious
prostration of the whole nervous system. The most prominent physicians
now believe that "nervous prostration"
and many affections of the nerves from
which both men and women suffer are] claims,
caused by tlie continued absorption of
alum into the system.
It Is probable that many medical
men are unaware of the extent to
which salts of alumina may be Introduced Into the body, being under the
impression that the use of alum in
bread is prohibited. Alum, however, is
still used surreptitiously to some extent to whiten bread, and very largely
In making cheap kinds of baking powder. In families where baking powder Is generally used great care shonld
be exercised to procure only those
bran'ds made from cream of tartar.
The alum powders may generally be
distinguished by the lower price at
which they are sold.

Hour law is to be held in abeyance
and tbo political wejjfaro of the
country is to be dictate*! from tbe
bead office of their association. They
fail to recognize the true state of

calamity howlers, who are largely
overestimating their importance antl
who aro destined to be "sat down upon

The reports circulated by the subsidized agents of the Mine Owners
Association, to thc contrary, the fact
still remains that thero are at present
more miners employed in the mines
Hound and about. Silveiton, twice
over, than during this stason lai-t
year. In fact thn demand for mir.ers
has been so great that, twice within
(he last week, Sandon haa been called
upon to furnirh miners to a)\ up the
quota ot men wanted. Not only are
all the Silverton miners working but
they are motiving the full Union
wage of $3 50 per dav,
