Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy positively
W. A. McGuire, a well known citizen
' of McKay, Ohio, is of the opinion that
there is' nothing as good as children
troubled ' with colds or croup as
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. He has
used it in his family for several years
with the best results and always kept a
bottle of it in the house. After having
la grippe he was himself troubled with
a severe cough. He used other remedies
without benefit and then concluded to
try the children's medicine and to his
delight it soon effected a permanent cure.

LIFE OF A TRAINED NURSE.
Many Duties Fall to the Lot of the Self-
- The number of books, with their big,
unpronounceable names which nurses
in training' have to study frighten
away all rattlebrained . applicants,
leaving only the studious, determined
and reliable, says Donahoe's Magazine.
Heroines they are, every one of them
who finishes the course, as anyone
must see who has lived among- them
and watched them through each busy
day, dressing' wounds, bandaging' and
making bandages and rollers and lin
ing's of splints, cooking and serving
delicacies, dressing the newly born
and preparing the dead for burial -and
making the rounds with, physicians
and surgeons, from whom they receive
their practical training. In addition
to these few duties mentioned out of
the thousand and one that will suggest
themselves, they must attend lectures,
recitations and demonstrations, and
prepare for their own examinations,
which in some schools occur, each
month, but generally every three
months. Even from this brief show
ing, it will be seen the life of a trained
nurse is a ceaselessly busy one, helpful
and truly noble, but in no way a sine
cure. No one but the fairly educated
and cultivated should enter the pro
fession, since nurses should have these
qualifications quite as much as the
mechanical skill in order to render
them agreeable to the class of people
who commonly employ nurses. And
none but the patient . and self-sacri
ficing need enter the profession ex
pecting . to -rise to the rank of a
Florence Nightingale; at least, that is
the conclusion of one who has lived
with them, studied their life and
profited by their training.
An Ingenious Contrivance for Imitating
the Human Voice.
For many years there has been a de
mand for something in the way of a
pocket timepiece that would indicate
the hour by sound. A French watch
maker has invented a watch with a
phonographic attachment, and instead
of striking the hours the timepiece
murmurs them in a gentle tone or
chirps them in fcricket-like sounds, but,
in either case, clearly audible and un
mistakable. The attachment is de
scribed as "a 'circular plate of vulcan
ized rubber with striated furrows, and
a point resting upon the furrows and
traversing its sinuosities." By an in
geniously devised system of irregulari
ties in these depressions or furrows the
tones are varied and. made to produce
such words as: ' Ten o clock, ' Half-
past one o'clock," and the like. Alarm-
clocks with strong and piercing tones
.are to be made, and one may be shouted
to with such orders as: "Get up!" or
"Here, you boys, get out of that, or
it'll be the worse for you!" or similar
emphatic orders. The next thing in
order will be dials that will call out
the, hour when sick people may take
their medicine, or when certain house
hold duties may be performed. . It is
said to be possible accurately to repro
duce a sriven voice, and that one mav
have the voices of individuals phono-
graphed, and they may be put away
for future reference and as possible
mementos of those who have passed
HE WAS A SNEEZER.
The Man In the Car Who Caused Joy to
Three Foolish Girls.
Three shabby girls and a shabby
man got into a north-bound car at the
post office the other day, and soon after
the man . sneezed. He and the girls
were strangers to each other, but the
sauciest of the three girls laughed
when he sneezed. The man took no
special notice of her, but soon he
sneezed again and asrain, and then all
three of the girls giggled, and so did
the man. In the next three blocks the
man sneezed half a dozen times, and at
each sneeze the sauciest of the girls
said something and the others laujrhed,
By this time the other passengers
were interested, and everybody await
ed the man's sneeze. He kept it up
at intervals for the next half mile, and
everybody in the car roared at each
explosion. New passengers got in to
hnd the whole car in convulsions.
btaid persons tried first not to
laugh, but when the man's face
twitched as his sneeze hung fire and
the sauciest girl cried: "Watch him go
on," even they had to join in the fun
Passengers came and went, but the
man and the three girls remained
Everybody came in sober and went out
laughing, and after the thing had been
going on for three miles the passen
gers who got in at the post office were
in doubt whether the man had f.;ver
or was only an excellent facial coi.tor-
Pueblo Indians Secure the Uealred Result
by Means of Evaporation.
Of course, everyone likes ice water.
It is an American habit, and, patriotic
ally speaking, all American habits are
good. But if people only knew it, says
the Washington Post, there are better
ways of keeping water cool man put
ting ice in it. And the water that is
cool without being cold is twice as cool
ing to the drinker, to Bay nothing of
being several times as good for the
stomach into which it is put. One of
the simplest ways of cooling water is
by evaporation. The Pueblo Indian of
our southwest, with his untutored
mind, discovered this fact hundreds of
years ago, and has been using- the dis
covery in his quiet, unobtrusive way
ever since, while we of the higher civ
ilization have been buying ice, deplet
ing our pockets and spoiling our diges
tion at the same time. The Pueblo In
dians' never discovered the art of glaz
ing pottery, and the result is that all
their earthenware is more or less
porous, and when filled with water ab
sorbs it sponge-like, keeping the out
side always moist. This moisture
evaporating cools the vessel and the
water it contains, just .as one can feel
the coolness that comes from a breeze
on the body when wet with perspira
tion. In the dry air of the southwest,
where the Pueblo Indian finds his
home, this evaporation is very great,
and the result is that the pottery ollas
are used by "whites, Indians and Mexi
cans alike to hold cool drinking water.
Anyone who has traveled through
the southwest cannot fail to recollect
the old brownish buff -colored olla with
its curious Indian decorations in con
ventionalized pictures of birds, beasts
and fish that were sure to be found in
the fork of a dry cottonwood branch
standing just inside the door with a
yellow calabash, or if, in a very modern.
house, a tin cup hanging from a nail
on the door jamb. And water from it
after a long, dusty ride in the boiling
sun tasted many times better than the
coldest ice cream soda he ever paid ten
cents for in the states. It may have
been what Col. Tom Ochiltree terms
the large, elegant thirst that added to
the supposed virtues of the olla as a
water cooler, but the scientists of the
National Museum will tell you that the
cooling qualities of the porous pottery
are quite as real as imaginary. In the
better class of Mexican houses the
chipped and battered olla in its pictur
esque rustic support will usually be re
placed by a more daintily ornamented
earthen one shaped like an army can
teen, suspended by a gray Mexican
scarf in the draught of a window, or a
highly ornate bowl of a couple of gal
lons' capacity, swung in the same way
in a netting of twisted yucca fibers.
But the cooling principle is always the

The Noise Said to So Made by tbe Wings
Afralnst the Body. ,
Early in October I had the only op
portunity which has ever presented
itself in ,my twenty years of experi
ence in forest and field of studviner the
method employed by the cock part
ridge in producing that peculiar sound
known among sportsmen as drumming,
says a writer m Forest and Stream. I
was out with my gun looking for quail
quite early in the morning and was
working toward a , small wooded
swamp, where I knew the birds found
safe shelter at roostin? time, as well as
from the gun when flushed by dog, for
no hunter, no matter how ardent,
would have the temerity to brave the
suck -holes and wild brier vines. Hear
ing the call of a quail, I stopped to
listen and locate him positively. I
stood facing' a stone wall, distant about
six rods, on each side of whicli grew
hazel bushes. Suddenly out of those
on the opposite side sprang a fine old
cock partridge and dropped on the
wall directly in front of me, tail
spread, ruff standing1 out and crest
raised the picture of alertness. What
a chance for an artist. I hardly
breathed. Between us was a smaU
alder bush,' tall and slim. This wai
the only shelter, yet the bird did not
seem to notice me, for after standing a
moment he began preening himself,
seeming to enjoy the rays of the sun,
which shone warm and bright. I stood
and watched him thus for probably ten
minutes, and was considering whether
to let him go altogether or flush and
try a shot, when he stopped, shook
himself, stretched one wing and leg,
then the other, took a look around and.
slightly raising his feathers, as a set
ting hen when disturbed, raised his
wings a little above a horizontal line
and brought them down against his
body, increasing the time until it
ended in a flutter, as it seemed. '. This
I watched him repeat; the third time I
moved slightly; he spotted me and
moved also. I am ' perfectly satisfied
on one point, however, that the mysteri
ous noise, as some term it, is produced
by striking the wings against the
body. As many will admit, vho have
had the opportunity to observe, the
sound is more pronounced and distinct
at a distance than very near it, where
it has a muffled, fluttering sound.
Many theories are advanced on the
subject, among them one to the effect
that the bird stands on a hollow log and
strikes it with his wings, thus , produc'
ing the sound from the log.
Burled In Teeth.
A dentist died in a rural town in Eng
land recently, after spending over fifty
years in pulling the molars of his fel
low citizens. He had made it a hobby
to keep all the teeth which ' he had
drawn in' the course of his professional
career, and took great pride in the col
lection. When his will was opened- it
was found that he had ordered the col
lection of teeth to be placed with him
in his coffin for burial. His heirs ful
filled "his command, and almost thir
ty thousand teeth were put into the
coffin with the dead dentist. If some
archaeologist of the future century
shall happen to open that grave, he will
have "food for thought" and some dif
ficulty, perhaps, in explaining the pres
ence of so many teeth.
