COLD IN THE HEAD.
How to Cure a Common Distressing
Hall". Journal of Health.
A cold in the head can usually
be cured in a few tours, if, as soon
as it is discovered, tlie person will
snuff the fumes of. ammonia or
spirits of camphor every few min
utes as strong as tliey can be
borne. When a severe old at
tacks the throat and lungs, tlerc is
r.o safety in neglecting it for an
hour, for there is more or less in
flammation of the lungs which in
terferes -with Un-ir action, render
ing them liable at any moment to
take serious and, possibly uncon
trollable disease. Go lome and
remain there. 1 the evening
take a warm foot bath, and at bed
time take three or four liver pills.
These will stimulate the liver to
healthy action, and promptly re
lieve the lung trouble; but it ren
ders the system sensitive to renew
ed attacks; and therefore, the
greatest "care should be observed
for several days not to take fresh
colds. Ordinarily no otlter treat
ment is Hcrcssary; but sltould the
cough continue, Imve your druggist
make the following mixture, and
take one or two teaspoon ful every
hour until cured: Glycerine, four
ounces; whiskey, four ounces;
,inrnlnnf one rain. Sore throat
can be promptly relieved by ap-ttlvin"-
a mustard plaster, or "mus
tard leaves,' on the front of the
neck, over the sore spot. In ad
dition the throat and mouth may
be frequently gargled with the
following mixture: A teaspoonful
of salt, a pinch of red pepper and
a tablcspoonful of vinegar. A
portion of the gargle may be swal
lowed or sipped, little at a time.
Sweating has ba quite gener
ally recommended in the cure of
colds. 1 think, however, that the
risk of taking cold afterward will
more than counter balance the
good that may be expected, and
except in cases of unusual sevcr
itv, I wuld not recommend it.
The "Turkish bath'' has been high
ly recommended as a cure for
colds. "With projKir care after
ward, there is .no better or more
effectual plan of cutting short a
. severe cold. It is not hewevei:
neqessary to go to a regular estab
lishment to take such a bath. Any
small, comfortable .room, will ans
wer the purjHJse. Iu the early
evening make a good fire in the
stove and close the doors and
windows, leaving only small open
ings for ventilation. Then let the
patient put on his night clothes
and lie down on a bed or sofa, or
sit in an easy chair for an hour or
more, with the temperature of the
room from ninety degrees to 100
degrees fahrenheit. Afterward
the room should be gradually
cooled to about seventy degrees,
and the patient should go to bed
and remain there till morning.

their bills and statements of accounts
printed. Statements of accounts and
bills of sale when made out on paper
liavinc printed headings, can be sent
by mail for one cent, if the envelope
is left unsealed; whereas, if it is made
out on unprinted paper, it will cost
three cents. Thus by patronizing Tub

LOST INTHB SNOW.
A Brave Struggle for Life by three
Men m Wyoming.
HcUtuu Montana territory. Herald.
A story of almost incrcditable
endurance and fortitude comes
from the far west with the report
of floods and snow storms. Three
men, including E. D. N. Cooke,
superintendent of the stage line,
started from fort Fetterman on the
upur Xorth Piatt river, for Hock
creek station on the Union Pacific
railroad, on a buckboard drawn by
two powerful iwrses. The snow
was falling fast and drifting badly,
and before tbev had reaclcd tlie
twenty-two-mile station tlicy had
completely lost the trail and tlie
horses were suffered to wander
about guided only by their own
instinct. After a time they left
the buckboard behind them and
endeavored to push forward on

Foote was nearlv killed bv his
horse, which fell backward into a
snowdrift eight feet deep. -After
this the liorscs were abandoned
and the men struggled along on
foot, liands, faces and feet being
badly frozen. The three men had
three sack of mail and a canvas
overcoat. The ttrst man would
stand on his mail-sack and throw
the coat ahead of him, allowing him
to take one steo. Then each man
would follow on, step bj step, and
the last man, picking up the fourth
bag, would heave it ahead for "the
first one to step on. . In this way
they made something like three
miles, and wlien the third night
set in they began' calling for help,
and in half an lour or so were
auswercd. Other calls were made,
and they were again answered by

There is a town in Connecticut
called Beacon Falls, consisting
principally of the Home "Woolen
mill and its operatives, where tltere
is but an indifferent svstem of
constabulary but nothing like a
lockup. It is the custom among
the weavers of the mill to right
their own wrongs without appeal
ing to asiy legal jurisdiction, and
tle course lias been approved by
the old settlers who pay taxes, on
the ground that it is a cheaper
system than to liave prosecutions
regularh brought for cases of
violation of law. .Pay-day at the
mill comes once a month, and the
hands take tle opportunity, as
regularly as the day comes around,
to meet somewhere over a social

A State Dfauier in "Washington's
The first public dinner given by
President George Washington, in
New York, is thus described in
"Washington's Annals" of tlrnt
city: "The guests consisted of
tlie vice president, tlie foreign
ministers, tlie heatte of the depart
ments, the speaker of the house of
representatives, and the senators
from New 1 lamjsiiiie and Georgia,
llten the most northern and south
ern states. It was the least showy
dinner that I ever saw at the presi
dent's table, and the company was
not large. The president made
his wlwile dinner on a boiled leg
of mutton. It was his usual prac
tice to eat of but one dish. As
there was no chaplain present, the
president himself said a very short
irrace as he was sittins: down.
After the dinner and desert were
finished one- glass ot wine was
passed round the table, and no
toast. The president arose, and
all the company, of course, and
retired to the drawing-room, from
which the guests departed as every
one chose, witbout ceremony.
