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
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.

DANIEL. WEBSTER'S SMALL FEES.
The Great Lawyer s Income Was Uii
nsually Limited Even for Ills Day.
' One of our correspondents has been
so lucky as to fall in with a little
leather-covered book, like those of
bank depositors, which contains Dan
iel 'Webster's autograph, record of. his
legal receipts, says the New York
Evening Post. , This chronicle fills
twenty-eight pages, and extends a
little more than from 1833 to 1830 in
clusive. The first entry, dated Septem
ber in the former year, is of 850, and
the second of $20 for retainers on the
New Hampshire circuit. The first fee
of $1,000 was paid in May, 1834, by a
Mr. Badger. Services regarding Cil
ley's will commanded $800. The total
amount for the first year was footed
up at $13,140, with the remark: "Sep
tember 22, 1834, thus done and con
cluded." A similar summing np ap
pears at the close of each other year.
The second total is 815,183.74; the third
is 821,793. The first entry of 83,000 was
in 1835, March. 7; the first of 83,000
December 7 in the same year. This
last payment was in respect to Florida
land. The largest single honorarium
was 87,500 in February of the fourth
year; 85,000 is set down as bestowed
in a case of Trinity church (New
York.) In turning over this record lead
ing metropolitan and even provincial
lawyers are astonished that Webster,
although twenty years in Boston, so
undervalued his services. He learned
better at last. When Robert C. Win
throp looked at the earliest date, he
said: "That's just the time that I was
ending my studies in Webster's office,"
and the chirography led him to add
that Webster never wrote a firm hand.
Nobody has surveyed the relic with
more interest than Dr. O. W. Holmes.
Among other things he said: "Had
the influx been tenfold, Webster's
purse would nave remained empty
still. Had its capacity received like
the sea, whatever entered there would
have run off like water from the .back
of a duck."
WHY DINNER IS LATE.
Men Agree That It
Ahead of Time.
"It is a curious thing," said the
Grumbler, "that, while I have been
keeping house for thirty years and have
had my wife tell me a thousand times
that dinner was late, I never once knew
of a time when dinner was ahead of
time. I have made careful inquiry
among my friends- (and I have many
who have been domestic longer than I)
and I do not find a single well-authen
ticated case where dinner was ever, at
any time or place, ahead of time,"
quotes the Buffalo Express. "Five
times a week the cook will do' some
thing she ought not to do and dinner
will be anywhere from five minutes to
an hour behind time, but she never gets
under sufficient headway to have the
things on the table before the appointed
time. I have made this curious and in
teresting phase of home life a careful
study and I intend to write a pamph
let about it."
"I guess you're right." said the Kick
er. "I am a married man of some few
years myself, and I have had the same
experience. I may get home an hour
earlier than usual and be hungry as
three bears, but that does not make
a particle of difference. Dinner never
comes before six o'clock, which is the
scheduled time, but very frequently
comes much after that time. I had an
old uncle once who noticed the same
thing. He was in the house one day
and put the clock ahead two hours to
see if he couldn't work the miracle
But the cook fooled him."
"What did she do?" asked the Grum
"She turned on the natural gas be
fore she put in the match", and when
the fire department got through it was
nine o clock.

Unlackr Opal Defies the Imitative
Skill of tho Moderns.
' One kind of opal, the hydropane of
Mexico, loses its beauty and becomes
dull and colorless when exposed to
water The same stone, says the West
minister Review, it is said, can be re
stored to its color and beauty by sub
jecting it to a certain degree of heat.
A writer on the subject - says that the
opal is always much more- brill' -nt on
a wirm day, and that a sharp dealer
will always hold one in his hand a
short time before showing it to a pur
chaser. In ancient times the opal was
most successfully imitated by a glass
paste, . which could only be distin
guished from the real gem by the most
careful experts. The art has been en
tirely lost, for the best counterfeiters'
fail to produce a stone that in the
least baffles the connoisseur. -The
finest opal of modern times, says King,
was one which belonged to Empress
Josephine, and which was called the
'Burning of Troy," because of the in
numerable red flames blazing upon its
surface, while the reverse was perfect
ly opaque. In the troublous times that
followed the Napoleonic period the
gem was lost sight of, and there i3
left no trace, of it. There are two
wonderful ' opals among the French
crown jewels, one of which is set in
the clasp of the imperial cloak. Em
press Eugenie is said to have a most
superstitious dread of them and would
not wear an opal foe any persuasion.
Queen Victoria does not share this feel
ing with her. She, on the contrary,
admires the gem very much, and has
given to each of her daughters, or
their marriage day, various pieces oi
jewelry set with the iridescent gem.
There are many varieties of opals.
coming from almost as many quarters
of the globe. The opal found in Hun
gary was thought to be harder anc
more durable than those found in Mei
ico and South America, but since the
better development of the mines in
those places stones have - been found
quite the equal of Hungarian gems.
af the Sea
Are Very De
In the opinion of Dr. Michaelis, of
Berlin, the greatest enemies to the per
manency of the Portland cement used
m marine structures are the sulphates
contained in sea water. If there is any
great quantity of alumina and ferric
oxide in the cement the structure
breaks up sooner than otherwise. This
is accounted for by the fact that the
sulphate forms, with the aluminate and
ferrate of lime, a number of crystalline
compounds, such as bassic sulphate of
lime, alummo-snlphate and ferro-sul-phate
of lime. These compounds- take
up a large quantity of water of crystal
lization, so that the total volume is
much increased. Hence the weakness
and disintegration of the cement struc
ture. - Dr. Michaelis considers that the
separation of hydrate of magnesia is
quite innocuous, for it is only displaced
from its solution in the form of a floc-
culent, slimy hydrate, which, if any
thing, is useful in stopping up the
pores. His creneral recommendation to
users of concrete for marine work is to
choose a cement rich in silica and as
poor as possible in alumina and ferric
oxide, and to envelop the structure
with an impenetrable mixture com
posed of one part of cement with two
to two and one-half parts of sand of
mixed grain, of which at least one-third
should be very fine sand, and to this
the requisite amount of ballast should
be added. . , '
CASTE FOLLOWS THE NOSE.
Anthropologists Say tbe Nose Tolls the
Cultaro of Man.
Anthropology, said Sir William Flow
er, is becoming of the highest impor
tance in politics. If we take a series
of castes in Bengal, Behar or the
northwestern provinces and arrange
them in the order of the average nasal
index, so that the caste with the finest
nose shall be at tho top, and that with
the coarsest at tie bottom of the list,
it will be -found that this order sub
stantially corresponds with the accepted
order of social precedence.
The casteless tribes who have not yet
entered the Brahmanical system oc
cupy the lowest place in both series.
The fisher castes are a trifle higher in
the scale; the pastoral, the cultivating,
and. a group of cognate castes from
whose hands a Brahman may take
water follow in due order; and from
them we pass to the trading and the
landholding classes and the upper crust
of Hindu society.
Thus it is scarcely a paradox to lay
down as a law of the caste organization
in Eastern India that a man's social
status varies in inverse ratio to the
width of his nose.
Tbe Most Ancient Sons.
A topical song three thousand years
old was sung in a comic opera lately
produced in Australia by a traveling
Chinese company. The history of this
venerable ballad is authenticated by
the affirmation of the chief comedian
of the troupe, who avers that the song
has been snng on the Chinese stage,
With the original words and music,
since 1000 B. C. A Melbourne - critic
says the accompanying melody "con
sisted partly of a Chinese chopping
wood, partly of another Celestial blow
ing a bull's horn with horrible intens
ity of ellort, and partly of a curious
stringed instrument, which makes a
noise like an infant crying in the
Late flowers. . ;
With the turning of the leaves it is
supposed the flowers disappear, but in
northern New England, and over the
line in Canada, the asters are
never more gorgeous, the daisies big
ger or the chamomile more abundant
than just on the eve of frost time. In
towns two or three hundred miles north
of New York the short but warm sum
mer seems to have its fruitage after the
equinox, and the parks and gardens in
these town are brilliant with mari
golds, zinnias, asters, co&mas, and even
sweet peas, long gone by in these lati
tudes. Melons are in their prime m
