DUST AND FILTH.
Mud Ii Kecommemled by PUyvlclaat as
m Health Preserver.
In London it wad noticed that when
the streets were muddy there was a
marked diminution of diseases that
were prevalent when dust is blowing.
Bowel troubles are plentiful when peo
ple are compelled to inhale dust. Con
sumption, too, often gets its start
from dust. Other illnesses almost
equally grave follow from the breath
ing of flying particles of filth. Add
sufficient water to transform the dust
into mud, and the power for harm is
gone, for mud is not inhaled. The
germs that infest dry mud become in
ert in mud, because these germs, vi
cious as they are, are too lazy to go
anywhere unless they are carried.
Moreover, mud is very likely to get
ultimately into the drain pipe, and the
germs are carried oif where they can
do no harm. Kven when mud dries on
the clothing and is brushed off the
dust that-arises therefrom does not
appear to bo as dangerous as that
which has not been recently wet. It
will thus be apparent that there is a
bright side to mud, and henceforth all
but the most fastidious will revel in
muddy streets. Many physicians may
advise their more weakly patients to
go abroad in search of exercise only
when tho roads are muddy. Rich men
may be looked for to have special
mud spots somewhere on their grounds
while sanitariums may bo expected to
advertise that all tho walks about *helr
buildings are so constantly attended
to that mud is guaranteed every day
in the year. Mud baths have long been
utilized, and mud would seem certain
to become one of the great curative
agents of the near future. Yet wise
medicos are learning nothing that has
not been known for ages to mothers
of large families in rural districts,
whero "playing in tho mud” has al
ways been known as the children's
healthiest pastime. —Boston Tran
A REVEREND LADY’S HORSE.
Anltntil Compel* Stable-Keeper to Wear
Skirt and Sunbonnet.
Rev. Anna Shaw's friends are rela
ting an incident concerning a horse
which Miss Shaw purchased while on
a visit to Gape Cod. The reverend
lady is a good judge of horseflesh, be
sides befng highly accomplished in
numerous other ways. She has been
heard to declare that David Harum
himself would have difficulty in over
reaching her in tho matter of a trade.
The Cape Cod animal which she pur
chased proved to be satisfactory as to
speed, temper and disposition, and for
several days Miss Shaw looked after
his wants herself, there being no man
on the premises just at that time.
Rev. Anna finally secured tho services
of a man servant just as she was leav
ing to deliver a lecture In a town not
far from Boston. The man entered tho
stall to perform tho usual duties of a
stable help and was at once kicked
Into insensibility. Ho soon recovered,
but refused to go near the horse again
and tho animal fared rather poorly un
til Miss Shaw’s return. Then another
man was hired, but he met a similar
reception. A third keeper was en
gaged, Miss Shaw conscientiously in
forming him as to the experience of
his two predecessors. The newcomer
made some inquiries as to the ante
cedents of the horse and found that
It had always been eared for by the
wife of Us former owner. Borrowing
a skirt and an old sunbonnet from
Miss Shaw the man went up to the
horso in safety and from that day to
this has never had any trouble with
An Alban? 1’oet.
William Crossweil Doane, Episcopal
bishop of tho diocese of Albany, who
has just isucd a volume of poems, is
one of Albany’s striking figures. lie
dresses in tho style of the English
clergyman, and in personal appearance
he would readily be mistaken for an
Englishman. In his walks about the
state capital the bishop is always ac
companied by his faithful dog, a fine
specimen of the Great Dane breed.
Whenever the bishop is invited to de
liver tho prayer in the senate or as
sembly he bids his dog lie down in the
corridor and wait for him. Then he
hands the animal his shovel hat. The
dog takes it between his teeth and nev
er budges until the bishop returns.
What would happen if any one at
tempted to take the hat away from
him is a mere matter of conjecture, for
no one has over had tho temerity to try
tho experiment.—Chicago Journal.
Over Mountain to Death.
While descending from Camp McKin
ney to Jolly Creek, H. C., the horse
hauling Hoff’s mail stage bolted, and
could not ho controlled by Andrew
Kirkland, the driver. Finally the horses
left the road and dashed over the bank
dragging the stage down the steep in
cline. Passengers, horses and coach
rolled over and over and into the creek
below. Kirkland was Instantly killed,
his neck being broken. Of the passen
gers, one, a woman, had her collar
bone broken and besides was badly
bruised. Harry Nicholson was seriously
Injured, and another male passenger
was also hurt. The horses were kille ..
The Advent of Coffee
About the year 1600 coffee began to
be talked of in Christendom as a rare
and precious medicine. In 1615 it was
brought to Venice, and in 1621 Burton
spoke of it In his "Anatomy of Melan
choly” as a valuable article which he
had heard of but not seen. In 1652 Sir
Nicholas Crlspe, a Levant merchant
opened in London the first coffee house
known in lingiand, the beverage being
prepared by a Greek girl brought over
for the work. Other coffeo houses In
I abundance were soon opened.
Owing to the fact that it will
be impossible for us to receive all
our goods by Saturday, October
5, the date named for our open

postpone our display until Satur
October 12, when the greater
portion of our new goods will

War Destroy* Forest*.
Twenty-five years ago, In 1876, Ser
via was clothed with forests and was
aptly termed “the land of the forest,”
but the Servlan-Turco troubles of
1876-78 played havoc with the forests.
Thousands of acres were stripped of
trees in order to serve for fortifications
or to bar the advance of the Turkish
army or to warm the great masses of
troops that camped on the land during
two winters. The war was followed by
a period of ruthless destruction of the
forests, vast tracts being sold at a rid
iculous price or denuded to supply the
Tot Onuses Night Alarm.
“One night my brother’s bnby wns
tnken with Croup,” writes Mrs. J. C.
Snider, of Crittenden, Ky., “it seemed
it wood strnngle before we could get a
doctor, so we gave it Dr. King’s New
Discovery, which gave quick relief and
permanently cured it. We always keep
it in the house to protect our children
from Croup and Whooping Cough. It
cured me of a chronic bronchial trouble
that no other remedy would relieve.”

A Fiendish Attack
An attack was lately made on C. F.
Collier of Cherokee, Iowa, that nearly
proved falat. It came through liis kid

tween the states, and may be properly
designated as a product of three states,

souri (where he married), and for the
last 37 years a citizen of Texas. He
served four years in General Parsons’
Missouri cavalry, General Marmaduke’s

the tallest man in the United States.
Stop* Sale op Indian I.anri*.
The supreme court of the District of
Columbia has granted the restraining
order sought by the old Kiowa chief.
Lone Wolf, who wants to stop the dis
posal of the Kiowa and Comanche res
ervation. This means that the recal
citrant members of the tribes are to
have the benefit of a doubt, and tlmi
will be allowed in which to take evi
dence as to the charges of fraud and
misrepresentation in getting the treaty
adopted by the Indians by means of
which their lands were secured to be
sold to settlers._
