Tills is a gatno known in Franco under tho

"Walk, madam, walk," nnd tho blindfolded
madam valks to and fro accordingly until
ho treads on ono of tho handkerchiefs. Here

Then ho is blindfolded ns "Madam" and tho

No bird is better known or dearer to tho
children Uinn robin rod breast. Ills song is
very sweet nnd pleasing, and as ho sings
throughout tho greatcr'iwrt of tho year, con
tinuing till very lato in autumn, when nil
other birds aro dull and mute, it must bo ad
mitted that ho deserves tho kind treatmont
which nhnost overywhero ho receives.
Tho nest of this bird is generally placed
near tho ground, in somo bush or mossy
bank; but no bird is so capricious In choosing
n corner for his llttlo homo ns tho robin, Tho
writer hns found n nest with fivo eggs in an
old watering pan, nnd has soon another In

very strangest plneo in which a robin's nest

Cocnlno continues to attract much atten
tion, nnd mnny now facts concerning It nro
lielng disclosed nnd reported. According to
recent Ocrinnn Investigation, tho drug has n
"stimulating effect on tho jisyehlo nnd motor
nervo centers, increases tho rapidity of
breathing, quicken tho heart's action, and
promotes chemical change going on in tho
tissues." From Its not Ion on tho nervo cen
ters, it Is declared to lie "tho liost of known
stimulants." In this rosoot It Is lu marked
antagonism to chloral, which "depresses tho
functional activity of thrso centers." If an
animal ha liecn narcotized by a doso of
chloral that would otherwise provo fatal, it
can 1k roused and saved by tho Injection of
a small doso ot cocaine."
In regard to temporaturo, wys Popular
Bclenco Now, this nntngonistlo notion falls.
It is well known that chloral tend to lower
tho nnlmal teniieraturi', while, on tho other
hand, cocnlno tends to ralto it. In all other
rcsccts tho antagonism of the two ngoutsis
comjiletc, dangerously largo doses of chloral
proving harmless after tho administration of
small doses of cocalno. It is suggested, how
ever, that as tho Hint effect of cocaine, not
withstanding its subsequent action ns a
stimulant, I, to depress tho respiratory func
tion, it Is advisable, in cast of chloral poison
ing, to Induce nrtlllolal respiration for a
short tlmo after administering tho cocnlno.
Cocaine, according to tho nulhorlty quoted
from, Is nlso antagonistic to chloroform and
ether, nnd tho Inhalation ot cither of thesu
11 gents will nllny tho convulsions duo to
lolsonous docs of cocaine. Tho sovoror
symptoms hnvlng lieen thus allayed, chloral
may bo afterward given to keep up tho
effect. On tho other hand, cocaine may lio
used as nn nutldoto In cases ot poisoning by
nnrcotio agents, especially such as cause
great depression ot tho respiratory and
cardlao centers. It is added that cocalno Is
found to Ui a perfect substitute for strych
nlno, as it has all tho therapeutic activity of
that drug, without any ot itn poisonous
Fond for Djspeptlrs.
Moat, gittnonnri poultry of ovory kind for
invalids or tho dyspeptic, advises Tho Herald
of Health, ought to Ixs served as free from
fat as possible. Lamb's feet are recom
mended as oxtromcly nutritious. Thco may
bo purchased ready cleaned (two would bo
sufllclcnt for n portion); lay them ten min
utes in boiling wnter, which facilitates draw
ing out tho leg bono; then put in a stowpan
and iKHir over over n pint of water in which
is mixed smoothly n tablcspoouful of flour
and half as much of salt; placo them on tho
lire, stirring frequently until boiling, when
add n small onion, with celery, nparsnlp and
pareloy. Doll gently for two hours. Whon
(lotto servo plain upon n plate, or with a llttlo
molted buttcrand parsloy poured over. Dy
using n llttlo white broth from nny moat in
stead of water a delicious soft soup is mado
which tho most delicate can partake of freely.
Calves' feet nro dressed similarly, but using
a double proportion of tho ingredients and
stewing doublo tlmo. They nro scrvod pre
cisely tlio same.
Trrntmetit for Chronic Horo Tliront.
Ono of tho Itest remedies for chronic soro
throat, says Good Health, is packing tho
throat over night. On going to lied apply
to tho throat a towel wet in cold water and
wrung as dry ns possible, over which put
three or four thicknesses of dry flannel, and
cover all with oiled silk or muslin. In tho
morning, rcmovo tho bandage, and batho tho
throat with equal parts of vinegar and
water, or salt and waor, a tablespoonful o
tho quart. Ucforo breakfast, garglo a half
pint of water, hot as can bo bomo. Keep tho
skin active, and don't tako cold.
A Clmter In tlio ICye.
Nino persons out of overy ten with a clndor
or any foreign substnnco in tlio oyo, will in
stantly begin to rub tho cyo with ono hand,
whllo hunting for thoir handkerchiof with
tho othor. Thoy may, and sometimes do, ro
movo tho offending cinder; but moro fre
quently they rub till tho eyo liecomos in
flamed, bind n handkerchief around tho head,
and go to bod. This Is all wrong. Tho hot
ter way is, not to rub tho eyo with tho cindar
in at nil, but rub tho other eyo as vigorously
03 you llUo.
Using Terms of Kndenrmnnt.
Avoid tho uso of terms of endearment
when you do not mean them. Tho word
"do r" In tho mouths of mnny women of
fashion is often nothing moro than a femlnlno
way of 8elliug "detestable." I'ubllo kissing
overy tlmo women meet and part is an ob
jectionable habit Ilemember that all publla
displays of ufl'cction aro in questionable taste.
CIiiiiiro of Underclothing.
Oonorally speaking, tho oftcner ono
changes tho underclothing tho bettor. A
great deal of olTcte matter passes through tho
skin and is retained in tho clothing, thus ne
cessitating a frequent change. Tliero should
bo nothing worn at night which has boon
worn during tho day.
Manners nnd Cimtoint rritctlrotl In I'ollto
Do not indulgo in tho habit of letting your
lip drop nnd your mouth romaln open. "Shut
your mouth" is tho advice of a savant who
has written 11 book on tho subject. Drcatho
through your nostrils and not through your
mouth; sleep with your mouth closed; keep
it closed except when you open it for a pur
pose. An ojicn mouth indicates feebleness of
character, win lo tho habit cirocts tho teeth
and tho gouernl health.
Ftltiuetto for Children.
Don't finger articles; don't play with your
napkin, or your goblet, or your fork, or any
other articlo on tho tablo. Iteniemlier it is
exceedingly rudo to stretch across another's
plato to reach anything. It Is equally impo
lite to turn your back to ono pcr.on for tho
purposo ot talking to another. Don't talk
across tho one seated next to you.
Avoid slang as you would tho plague. It
is a groat mistake to supposo that slang Is in
nny way a substitute for wit. It is nlwnys
111 bred, generally coarse, and not uufro
quently foolish. And Anally:
If you your oars
Would save from Jeers.
Thcso things keep meekly hid
Myself and 1,
And initio and my,
And how I do or did.
Try Not to IIo n Here.
It you do not want to mako yourself disa
greeable In short, if you do not wish to lo
a loro never interrupt. To cut 11 erson
short In tho middle of his or her story Is un
pardonable. Ono of tho canons of good so
ciety Is, briefly, "Do not contradict." Dlf
ferunco of opinion is no causo of oirenso, but
downright contradiction is n violation of
tnio etiquette. Try, when you havo a story
to tell, not to go into tedious details and
branch ou at nny word; Im direct, compact
and clear, nnd reach tho jvoltit us soon ns you
can. Do not Indulgo lu tho habit of contin
