"NASAL VOICES, CATARRH AND
A prominent English woman says
the American women all have high,
shrill, nasal voices and false teeth.
Americans don't like the constant
twitting tlwy get about thia nas.tl
twang, and yet it ia a fact caused ly
our dry stimulating atmosphere, and
the universal presence of catarrhal
But why should so many of our
women have false teeth?
Thit ia more of a poser to the Eng

stomach action caused by imprudence
in eating and by Want of regular ex
Both conditions are unnatural.
Catarrh troubles everywhere prevail
and end in cough and consumption,
which are promoted by mal nutrition
induced by deranged stomach action.
The condition is a modern one, one
unknown to our ancestors who pre

consumption by abundant and regu

He had frequent hemorrhages. After

ABUSE OF BASE-BALL.
wny ITnr sslonal Kali- Flaying is Harmful
to the ras of fhysicad Training.
Every true friend of athletics musl-j
regret the use that is being- made of
this game in the professional field. Ii
Is, of course, a misnomer to apply thi
term athletic exercise, in its ordinary
sense, to a professional base-ball game.t
The men who manag-e these games,
and those who engug-d in them, do so
without any idea of the physical,
benefits that may be derived from'
the in. The benefits sought after are?
financial and not physical; the develop
ment of the pocket-book and not of tb.jj
muscle. The character and aims ofl
the professional ball clubs are veryj
much the same as that of the theatrical
troupes traveling around the country.
It is the gate-money in the one case
and the box-office receipts in the other
that constitutes the chief end of ex
istence in the view of the management.
Both enterprises are conducted on
& purely mercenary basis. It is, there
fore, just as far short of the truth to
epeak of a professional game of ball as
having- any real connection with
physical training as it ia to 6peak of a
professional theatrical performance
having any connection with the train
ing of mind and morals. Contests
where physical strength and skill are
the nnly elements set off against each
other, where the struggle is fair and
honest, with no particular end in view
except that of success, are very differ
ent from contests carried on by
salaried professionals in a professional
way and with only a professional end
In view. Whatever good, in short,
may come from professional ball
playing, it can hardly be in the way
of physical good. We doubt very
much whether any good of any kind
comes from it. The relation which
the professional game assumes to bear
to real athletic sports is a false
relation, and it can not be
less than harmful to the
higher cause of physical education.
As a game like that of ball descends
more and more to the level of a busi
ness, it becomes less and less a means
of recreation. We say as it "de
scends," for we regard the game of
ball in itself as a noble, manly and
healthful sport, and to bring it to the
level of the traveling circus and the
variety show is, in our opinion, a de
cided degradation. The parallel be
tween the professional ball club and the
traveling circus might be carried
further than the mere business feat
ure. The surroundings and concomi
tants. But we shall content ourselves
for the present with .pointing out the
abuse which has been put upon the
National game by making it a mere
catch-penny show. This it has become
and nothing more. AT. Y. Observer.
A wn'ter in American Notes and
QriK-ies says of the turquoise: "For
some reason, not perfectly understood,
it changes from blue to green and
sometimes to white. I own a turquoise
myself which, I am sure, chart g-es color,
sometimes looking green, sometimes
blue. This change of color gave rise
to the belief that the color of the tur
quoise varied with the health of the
wearer, being blue when the wearer
was in good health, and white or green
in case of ill-health. w
Sorrow Is not an acciaeut, occur

THE BARBER'S REVENGE.
A Colored Ctttn-Scraper Successfully
Take the Law u hi Own Hand.
Gus White, a Galveston Ethiopian,
needed money, but did not have any.
He tried to negotiate a loan of a few
dollars from Disconsolate Jones, who
is a barber, offering his note to be
shaved, but Disconsolate told him that
he shaved chins, not notes. Finally,
things camo to that pass that Gus just
had to have money, so he went once
more to Disconsolate Jones. This time
he felt sure of success, for he carried
his ivory-handled pistol with him. Dis
consolate was waiting for a customer,
and after he dressed Gits' wool, and put
some hair-oil on it, the latter offered to
sell the barber an ivory-handled pistol.
"Disconsolate Jones, give me two
dollars and de pistol am yours," said
"G'wny, niggah; hit's agin de law to
tote pistils," replied Jones.
"But you needs a pistol when you
goes home at nights to keep de robbers

tomer came in to have his chin scraped,
which ended the negotiations.
Strange to say, that very night, on
his way home. Disconsolate Jones was
attacked by an unknown man. who
kicked and mauled him, robbed him of
all his loose change, and fled in the
darkness without uttering a word. Next
morning before Gus White was up he
was called on by Disconsolate Jones,
who told him the story of his woes.
'I done told yesterday yer mout be
robbed," replied Gus.
"Whar's dat pistil you wanted to sell
me yesterday for two dollars?" asked
"Hit's agin de law to tote weapons,"
replied Gus sarcastically.
"Nebber mind. I ain't gwine to be

Nobody but a plum coward totes

Disconsolate Jones paid over the
money and took the pistol. As soon as
he got the pistol he examined it, put it
in his pocket, and carelessly picking up
a chair,, he whacked Gus White at a
"Dah," said the breathless Disconso
late, compelling Gus to return the
stolen money and also the price of the
pistol, "de next time you wants ter rob

GREAT STEAMBOAT RACE.
More Than a Million Said to Have Been
Staked I pnu the Result.
The greatest steamboat race that wni
ever run in the world was that whl.-'i
occurred in June, 1870, from New Or
leans to St. Louis, between Hie Robert
K. Lee and the Natchez. The latter was
built at Clmvnnati, was coronuiudtni by
Captain T. P. ljjttliHrs, and in Juno of
the above year made the fastest time on
record from New Orleans to St. Louis,
1.278 miles in three days, twenty-one
hours and fifty-eight minutes. The
-Uobert E. Lee was bulltat New Albany
during the war and was towed across
the river to the Kentucky sine to have
her name painted on her wheel houses,
a matter that was deemed prudent in
those exciting times. She was com
manded by Captain John AY. Cannon,
who died at Frankfort, Ky., in 1SS2.
There was great rivalry between the
boats, and when the Natchez nmile her
great run Captain Cannon determined
to beat it. He stripped the Loo for the
race removed all parts of her upper
works which were calculated to catch
the wind; removed all rigging and out
fit that could be dispensed with to
lighten hor; engaged the steamer Frank
Pargoud to precede her a hundred
in iles up the river to supply coal; ar
ranged with coal yards to have fuel
flats awaiting her in the middle of the
river at giveu points, to bo taken in
tow under way until the coal could be
transferred to the deck of the Lee, and
then to be cut loose and float buck. He
refused all business of every kind, and
would receive no passen.? rs. The
NaU-hez returned to New Orleans ami
received a few hundred tons of freight
and a few passengers, and was adver
tised to leave for St. Louis on Juno 30.
In the afternoon the Robert E. Iee
backed out from the levee, and five
minutes later the Natchez followed
her. The whole country watched the
race with breathless interest, as it had
been extensively advertised by the
press, and the telegraph attended its
progress along the river at every point.
At all the principal cities Natchez,
Vicksburg. Helena, and Memphis
people for m-tny miles were present to
see the racers pass, and the time of
passing was cabled to Europe Vhn
Cairo was reached the race was vir
tually ended, but the Lee proceeded to
St. Louis, arriving there in three days,
eighteen hours and fourteen minutes
from the time she left N w Orleans,
beating by thirty-three minutes tha
previous record of the Natchez. The
latter steamer had run into a forr and
grounded between Memphis and Cairo,
which delayed her more than six
hours. It is said that 30,000 peopis
crowded the wharf, the windows and
the "housetops to welcome th Ie on
her arrival at St. Louis. Captain Can
non was tendered a banquet by the
business men of the city, and wa-t gen
erally lionized while he remained here.
It was estimated that more than
$ 1.000.000 changed hands on the result
of the great race. Many of the bet
were withdrawn, " however, on tin
ground that the Lee had been Hssistel
the first hundred miles of the trip by
the power of the Frank Pargoud added
to her own. and many steamboat men
have ever since regarded the Natchez
as the fastest boat of the two, but think
she was outgeneraled in the race by
the Lee. There was so much adverse
comment afterward by the press that
there has been no attempt sinee to re
peat such a performance. St. J.ouis
MAN'S TRUE CHARACTER.
In Moot Instances It 1 railed Forth Only
by Great Kmcrxmrlra.
Greatemergencies call forth the great
soul. War in the twinkling of an eve
turns village drunkards and pettifog
ging lawyesi into Generals and states
men. Love transforms Cymon from a
brute into a man. Necessity makes
Shakespeare a dramatist; accident re
veals Scott his true powers. The most
commonplace men and women have
pa.?ed through the fool's paradise of
love, when they were divine beings
worshiping divinity, and in that fool's
paradise they for a brief moment found
their true selves, saw deep into the
soul of their consort. That flittin
dreLim was in truth an awakening, the
brief opening of the spiritual eye.
When the world of facts has passed
away, our dreams may remain. The
man of common sense asks for reali! iei.
the ptvet knows that ou'.y illusions are
true. Look you, the man whom you
hate are there not women who worship
him, children who look up to him?
Who sees the true man you who hate
him. or they who love him? Love is a
divine delight; it reaches out over and
tround its object into the illimitable;
it is a part of the over-soul of the in
finite, of (-d. Hatred is painful. It
strains and racks the body, it blinds
the vision, it makes man conscious of
his mortal limitations. "Love sees the
virtues that are of the soul; hatred
only the diseases of the skin." "All
men have their faults, and stealing was
Bill's," said a weeping widow over the
corpse of a desperado shot in attempted
burglary. And grotesque, ludicrous
as the expression may seem, she was
right. She knew that not in the rob
ber, the law-breaker, the outcast, did
the real man shine forth, but in those
rarer moods of kindliness and gener
osity when he was the true friend and
husband. Perhaps when two enemies,
who have refused to see any good in
each other on this earth, meet here
after in another world free from the
muddy vesture of decay which clogs
their vision here, the first thought of
each will be: "Is this the beautiful
-mil that I maligned and hated?"

HoTemrnts That Are of Great Vain la
Developing the Luna.
Standing as erect as possible, with
ihouldera thrown back and chest for
ward, the arms hanging close to the
ody, the head up, with lips firmly
jlosed, inhalation is to bo taken aa
ilowly as may be; at the same time the
extended arms are to bo gradually
raised, the back of the hands upward,
until they closely approach each other
above the head. The movement should
be bo regulated that the arms will be
jxtended directly over the head at the
Moment the lunga are completely
illed. This position should be main
tained f rom five to thirty seconds before
the reverse process is begun. As the
arms are gradually lowered, the breath
Is exhaled slowly, bo that the lungs
shall be as nearly freed from breath as
possible at the time the arms again
reach the first position at the side. By
these movements the greatest expan
sion pot-sible ia reached, for upon in
spiration the weight of the shoulders
and pectoral muscles are lifted, allow
ng the thorax to expand fully, while
jpon exhalation, in lowering the arms,
we utilize the additional force of the
pressure upon the upper thorax to
render expiration as complete as pos
sible. Ihepe deep respirations should
be repeated five or six times, and
the exercise gone through with
several times a day. It is
hardly necessary to remark that the
clothing must in no way interfere with
the exercise. In some cases this exer
cise is more advantageous when taken
lying fiat on the back. Instead of stand
ing. In this position the inspiratory
muscles become rapidly strengthened
by opposing the additional pressure
exerted by the abdominal organs
tigainst the expanding lungs. And, on
the other hand, expiration is more
icrfeet and full on account of the pres
ure of these orgatiB. This ia an exer-
lne now jidvocatod by Beveral leading

- A n agitation Ingoing on In India
against the slaughter of cows for food
for thct soldiers. It is pointed out that
it takes over 1 i.'i.tMK) cows every year
to feed the soldh-rs. and that the
Hindoos themselves very rarely touch
meat, living upon rice, vegetables and
milk. Once even the "poorest could
have all tho milk ho wanted for his
babies and himself, but now it is im
possible for the villagers to get milk
even for infants whose mothers' breasts
have failed, and the failure of the
breuMs is due chiefly, also, to the lack
of cow's milk. Thousands of children
die on this account yearly.
The bones of our soldiers who fell
In Egypt aro arriving in this country
to be used as manure. A vessel with
a cargo of bones reached Aberdeen.
The captain said the bones, principal
ly of the camel and giraffe, while being
shipped at Alexandria were found to
include a number of perfect skeleons.
These he rejected, though the cargo is
supposed to have contained a quantity
of separate human bones. The natives
visit the battlo-flelds and dig up the re
mains of English soldiers. London
The new clock placed In the tower
