TilK HOT WATIil! CURE.
A VERY SIMPLE AND AGREEABLE
REMEDY FOR DYSPEPSIA.
Jlarnnmlf Ini; Coiitlictlni: Opinion on the
Sillijccl How ami When Hot AVnter
Slimilil Ho Used "Tliu Hiitr of the Dog
I G.mmI far the Hltp."
A "constant reader" writes that lie is in
n fog as to tlio effects of hut water in tlio
treat inetit of dyspepsia. lie has seen il
advocated in these columns and con
demned ly an esteemed contemporary,
wlio maintains that hot water brings on
tho disease for which it was recommend
ed. Uo now writes to know which state
ment i correct. Hot water, hot tea or
coffee, in fact, hot food, whether liquid
orfcolid. if umhI persistently, will in time
irritate the stomach and so impair its
power to digest. Practically, it will bring
NOT ALWAYS DYSlT.fSlA.
Now as to the eilicaey of hot water it
the treatment of that disease. Asa rem
cdy it doubtless appears of tho "hair of
the dog" sort It must be remembered
that there isa decided difference between
a healthy stomach and one in disease.
In health, nothing ought to bo habitually
put into that organ which is much nior
than "blood warm." lint in disease- the
condition of things is very different.
What is known as dyspepsia springs from
variable conditions, too many, in fact. ti
discuss hero. But in nearly all of them
tho stomach is less active than it ought
to be. or it works to a disadvantage, and
needs a spur or corrective.
Hot wateracts in several ways. When
taken into the stomach it not only stimu
lates it and quickens its action, but it
tends as do all hot applications to al
lay irritation. Reside that, it acts me
chanically, ami washes out that organ,
hurrying its contents down into tho in
testine, when without it tho same would
be retained longer than there is any need
of. lx'ta person who four or five hours
after a hearty meal still feels uncomfort
able sip nctip of very hot water, and it
will bring him great relief, stimulating
tho stomach and washing out of it much
of its contents which would havo been
Hent on into the intestines had not that
organ been fatigued by overwork.
Now, in what passes under tho head of
dyspepsia there is often a catarrhal
trouble of the stomach, and tho same sort
of affection, also, frequently exists in tho
intestine. The lining is more or less ir
ritated, and, in consequence of it, not
only is the secretion of mucus greater
than in health, but the same is changed
in character, is thicker, more adhesive,
etc. While the stomach is empty this
mucus pours out of its walls and glues
them over, as it were With such a do
posit upon them, let food be taken into
it and soon the same is coated witli mu
cus, and so rendered less susceptible to
the digestive fluids. Not only that, but
the mucus in question, while on tho walls,
keeps back to a certain extent the gas
tric juice, and prevents its freo entrance
into the stomach. For 6uch a condition
of things as this hot water is tho simplest,
most gratelul and effectivo remedy
a physician's testimony.
But by hot water is not, by any means,
meant water "scalding hot." Water too
hot may injure the lining of tho stomach
and cause other ill effects, Hot water to
be taken internally as a mcdicino should
bo at a lemperaturo of from 110 to 120
degs., or about as hot a1- tho coffeo one
indulge in after dinnci It should be
taken before meals from one-half to an
hour and a half and be slowly sipped.
If one is even fifteen or twenty minutes
in drinking a glassful all tho better
There are some precautions to bo used in
taking hot water.
A person who is liable to hemorrhages
should only tako it "blood warm." One
with heart trouble who has a weak
Jieart must sip it more slowly than
others need to do, occupying tho longest
time advised. While this remedy is one
of the simplest and most effective in
suitable cases, it must not bo forgotten
that its indiscriminate use is 6trongly
discouraged. Before applying it habitu
ally, the safe way is to consult a physi
cian, as in some instances whero it would
eem advisable to take it. it might bo
contra-indicated. To settle this question
regarding the value of hot water and the
possible dangers of using it. tho follow
ing testimony of a physician is offered
"Wo often hear il said that tho freo
and prolonged uso of hot water tends to
injure tho systom. Rome say that it is
weakening, that it weakens tho nerves
of the stomach, that il causes ninumia of
tho stomach, that it interferes with di
gestion, that it tends to produce a flushed
face and cerebral hypenumia, that it de
bilitates tho alimentary tract, and that it
causes a host more of most direful evils.
As a rule, all these objections are theo
retical, and come from those who never
used it intelligently and systematically,
and hence are ignorant of the facts. In
reply to such objections, ull I can say is
that I have used hot water daily for six
years without tho slightest perceptible
Injury, and havo 6een only uniformly
good results in persons for whom I have
prescribed its daily and long continued
use." Boston Herald.

My name i3 Woodford, said W. C.
Mills. I was l)orn in Woodford county,
this state. After the excitement inci
dent to an occasion such as a birth the
people began to Iwther themselves about
my name. Delegations called at the
house and wanted to know what I was
to be dubbed. As I am reliably informed
a day was set for the ceremony and peo
plo cames miles to see me. My father
informed them that he had concluded to
call me "Woodford Mills. He referred to
tho solicitude of his neighlwrs. and while
thanking them said he hoped the name
ho had selected would he satisfactory.
One of tho crowd got the lloor and said
Woodford was all right, but ho wanted
a middle name. Others followed in tlw's
strain, and llnally my father yielded.
He asked what it should be. Several
names were suggested, but none suited.
Finally one man asked:
"What is the 'Woodford for?"
My father said it was for somo relative
of his. Tho man who hail asked tho
question said lie thought maybe it was in
honor of the county. This suggested
that a "C" bo stuck in after Woodford,
and that it stand for county. And that
is my name Woodford County Mills.
The reason for so much commotion
about my birth and name is found in the
fact that 1 was the first white child born
in Woodford county. Chicago Tribune.
Divided by a Chalk I.lno.
There are two young men in this city
who have roomed together for some time
past, but who now don't speak as they
pass by. There never was any warm
friendship between them, their tastes and
habits being very dissimilar, but they
roomed together for reasons of economy.
Upon taking tho room it was divided into
two equal portions by drawing a chalk
lino across tho lloor, each agreeing to
confine himself to his own half of tlio
room. They soon got used to this and
when, in tho course of time, tho chalk
mark became obliterated, it was not
necessary to renew it, so accustomed had
they become to keeping within their re
All went well until one Sunday, when
a visitor called on one of the young men.
Tho other one was out, and tho visitor,
knowing nothing about the division of
the room, seated himself in tho portion
belonging to the absent man. When tho
latter returned and found him there ho
gruffly ordered him to go to his friend's
Bide of the chamber. Then tho 11 res of
hatred which had smoldered so long
broke out, and a rough-and-tumble fight
ensued between the two room mates,
with tho result that they now occupy
teparate apartments. Washington Star.
A llaudiomn Clock.
One of the most beautiful and costh
clocks ever made was sent many years
ago by the East India company as a gift
to the Emperor of China. The case was
made in the form of a chariot, in which
was seated the figure of a woman, with
her right hand resting on tho top of a
tiny clock, which was placed in the side
of the carriage. Some of the wheels that
moved the clock were concealed in the
body of a bird that had seemingly alight
ed upon the lady's finger. Over her head
was an umbrella that concealed a silver
bell. This, although it seemed to havo
no connection with the timepiece, struck
the hours, and it could be made to repeat
by touching a diamond button fixed be
low tho dial of the clock. At the feet of
tho lady's figure was a golden dog, and in
front of her were two birds that were
apparently flying before the chariot.
This exquisite clock, with all its neces
sary parts, was umde of gold, and was
most elaborately ornamented with pre
cious stones. Jewelers' Circular.
