In health the temperature of the
blood is constant, nnd even when spots
and rashes appear on the skin there
is no departure from the normal tem
perature unless there is a cause for
fever, such as blood poisoning, the In
vasion of some microbe or serious dis
turbance of the nervous system. In
fevers, when the temperature of the
blood is raised, vegetables are never
given, as they would not cool the blood,
but might help to beat it.
Some fruits have cooling properties,
as they contain citric acid, and this
forms citrates in the blood and in
creases the perspiration. In serious
fevers, however, it Is much safer to
give measured quantities of citrates to
produce this effect than to trust to the
uncertain action of fruit.
Fruit and fresh vegetables are anti
sorbuttcs that Is to say, they are ap
posed to scurvy. The cause of this dis
eas Is not early understood, but 11 is
certainly due to an absence of these
wholesome constituents from the diet.
The flushing of the skin, with spots
nnd rashes, popularly called "heating
of the blood." Is relieved and effete
matter is eliminated by their use, hence
the popular phrase that they cool the

Sir Isaac Newton studied the colored
rings In soup bubbles, which appear
white at tlrst and then, as the bubble
Is blown out, brilliant iridescent colors
appear In zones around the summit till
it" becomes black and bursts.
Thcae films Newton succeeded in
measuring by their color, producing
them by a jdano convex lens on plato
glass. At the point of contact was a
black spot with some six or seven rings
of light and dark colors alternately.
The thicknesses of the dark rings ho
found proportional to the numbers 0,
2, 4, 0, and of the bright rings' propor
tional to 1, 3, fi. The thickness of a sky
blue film was found to be two-mil-lionths

of violet, eleven; of green, fifteen; of
purple, twenty-one, nnd of yellow,

Messrs. Itucker and Itclnold more re

TRAVELING IN INDIA.
One Muni Illrp a Native hortniit or
Umlurf HnillrXM Trouble.
Every one who goeu to India to travel
or- live at hotels, hays the Chicago Ree-ord-IIerald.
must have a pergonal serv
ant, a native who performs the duties
of valet, waiter and errand boy nnd
whatever else may be required of him.
This Is a fixed custom of the country,
to resist which brings endless trouble
to tlie traveler.
Many of the Indian hotels c.spcct the
guests to bring all their own servants,
both chambermaids and waiters, and
are consequently so short bunded that
the traveler who comes without them
has usually to wait upon himself.
On the railways a native servant is
quite indispensable, for travelers are
required to carry their own bedding,
make their own beds nnd furnish their
own towels. The coinpnny provides a
bench to sleep on slmllnr to those in
American freight cabooses.
Each car has also a washroom and
sometimes water. But If the traveler
wishes to lie sure of washing his face
in the morning and if he Is wise he will
send his M'rvnnt to the station master
before tlie train starts and ask to have
the water tank tilled. Then a Hindoo
with a goatskin full of water will
climb to the roof of the car and fill it
and, having descended, will stnnd be
fore the door and touch his forehead
every time the traveler looks toward
him till ho receives a penny.
At the eating houses along the road
the servnnt will have to raid the ta
bles and shelves for food and bring it
to the car for his master, since no wait
ers are provided. In addition he will
hire baggast! carriers and will attend
to all the details of catching trains and
A good servant can be hired for ?1"
a month. Poorer "bearers," as they are
called, can be engaged for ?2 or $3 a
month and expect to "find" them
selves, but the traveler must pay roll
way faro for them.

" ThoAVallcr L. Main show arrived from
Newcastle Sunday morning about 7 30,
and in a very short space of time had the
tents erected and everything in order
where they located in the west part of
town. Tlio show drew a largo crowd of
people to town Monday. While there are
some expressions of disirnpointment as to
the performances iu was generally confined
to the concert that followed the main per
furinance The lion.es connected wit'i the
circus were the finest that ever 10m to
Alliance. The heavy draft horse1 that
did Ui j heavy hauling and roust-about
work were the admiration of all, and the
ring horses were equally as fine There
was an air of cleanliness about the Main
circus, indicating that order and system
prevailed. The most interesting features
of the performance, which was all good,
were the Nelson and Boyce families,
acrobats aud tumblers. Also the trapes
work of the actress who excelled anything
ever seen before. Whh tlio circus were
several smooth card trlxtcrs and they suc
ceeded in plying their nefarious games
successfully on the unsuspecting suckers.
If the like were attempted by local talent
there would be a shaking up of dry bones,
but with the stranger, "on again, gone
again, Flanagan," it was different. J D.
Harrison, Main's preys agent, is well ac
quainted with the circus business, hiving
been associated with almost every leading
aggregation including Buffalo Bill's wild

newspaper man, but like most of them,
quit the business and went into something
that paid a living.
