The modes of death's approach are va

that more persons die from disease of the

germs fall upon suitable soil they start
into life and develop, at first slowly and

the throat and if allowed to continue their
ravages they extend to the lungs produc

ing Catarrh. Now all this i3 dangerous
and if allowed to continue will in time
cause death. At the onset you must act
with promptness; allowing a cold to go
without attention is dangerous and may
loose you your life. As soon as you feel
that something is wrong with your throat,
lungs or nostrils, obtain a bottle of Bos

immediate relief.

The lieason AVhjr the Mtwlorn Rubber Mioe
Wear Out &o Qul kly I'ror.i of
Making a I Jobber Overshoe For 11 n
manlty'a Sake.
Oothara rublier manufacturers wcro con
sideraLJy. astonished recently by seeing in
print an advertisement for a man who lir.d
had experience omong the rubler plantations
of Central America and Para to start on nn
expedition to a new source of rubber supply.
"Excuse 1110," said a dealer, with a lau;;b,
"tho new source is a secret. KuHieo it to say
that in some way I have discovered o new
field of ojiorutiojis. It will le a sort of exper
imental flyer. Tho new field may not yield
five iHunls of rublcr, and, again, it may lo
an exceedingly rich source. I want to settle
or myself which it is."
"Why do you sitart tho expedition," the re
porter asked. "Have tho present known
sources given evidenco of exhaustion?"
"Well, I guess not," tho dealer replied.
"We get about 20,000,000 pounds of ruLber
yearly from liorneo ami Africa anil Tura, in
South America. But so great is the con
sumption of rubber in American commerco
that there is plenty of room for a new supply
of the material.
"It is curious how little people generally
know about rubber any how," the dealer
added suddenly. "They kick up a row and
potuibly swear when they And out that their
new rubber shoes sometimes wear out in a
couple of days, but they don't seem to under
stand enough about rubber to know that if
they knew more they could get rubber shoes
that were really made of rubber gum, and
wouldn't wear out in a hurry. Inspired by
the complaints that went on all about me
during the blizzard by people who had got
stuck on what they declared to be paste
board and paper overshoes, I made a jour
ney into history recently and jotted down
some things about real rubber for tho benefit
of my friends and the American public that
is, if the American public wants the benefit
of it. -When Columbus discovered America
he found those old Fifteenth century Ameri
cans were fussing away making things of
rubber, among them rubber shoes. But
even before the time of Columbus the Cast
Indians knew that rubber was a useful
thing, and they made shoes of it, too. They
made it out of the juice of a tree called
Ficus elasticus, and if anybody wants to
know right here why rubber shoes, so called,
wear out right off, you can tell them 'that it
is because there isn't Ficus elasticus juice, so
to speak, in the shoes.
"Columbus' Indians and the natives of
East India made roitgh rubber boots and
bottles and things of rubber in those old
days, and ever since the rest of mankind
woke up to the fact that rubber was a good
thing, the manufactme of boots and bottles
and thing3 has gone on boomingly. The rub-bei-s
of those old days, though, were rubbeis
that would wear well, although they had an
uncouth and clumsy appearance. Now we get
enough rubber from tho valley of the Amazon
and from Para and Brazil to justify every
manufacturer in making rubbers of rubber
fastead of something elso, and tho reason
that peopla have a chance to growl so much
about "bogus rubbers" is that tho bogus rub
bers are not made by tho honest process at
"The making of a rubber overshoe is an
interesting process indeed, if you travel back
to the beginning and follow it from tho very
outset. To get the rubber in the first place a
bolo is drilled in a rubber tree, and tlia sap is
drawn oil just like sugar is drawn from tho
maple tree, 'and the juiee is dried ovj-r the
smoke from a fire of wild nuts in Pura, and
when thickened is hung up to dry further.
This crude material contains o3 per cent, of
raw caoutchouc or rubber. This raw rublier
has to be cleaned with great care, and
dried afterward to exclude 51 per cent, of
water that is part of it. It takes all the
way from one to four months to do this
thoroughly. Before being fully dried it is
kneaded as is paper pulp, and crushed and
grouad and torn up generally to remove all
tho impurities. All tho time this is going on
tho rubber is thoroughly washed by a steady
flowing bath of water. With rubber that is
treated in this st-! you can make rubber
shoes that are lasting and also waterproof,
but you will have to pay more than fifty
cents or $1 a pair for them. When spread
upon the cloth shell of the overshoe, this style
of honest rubber shoe makes a shoe that is
really a gum shoe, and will keep out the wef
and the snow, and will wear without going
out at the heel or the too, or breaking en
tirely away from the upper. And that's the
t kind of rubber that I hope to get from this
new source of supply, and if I do, perhaps I
will become a sort of publie benefactor by
giving to Gotham commerce a material
for making gum shoes that my fellow citi
zens, after they have worn them once, will
not be obliged to sit up the next three nights
in succession completing their vocabulary of
strong language to furnish fitting terms of
abuse for shoes that aren't rubber, The new
expedition is a journey for the good o
humanity." New York Sun,
How Portraits Are Stolen.
One of the most difficult duties of a photog
rapher is to protect his patrons from having
their portraits stolen for either newspaper
purposes or to be hawked around the streets
as an advertising medium for some patent
medicine or hair wash. Correspondents for
sensational weekly papers are unscrupulous
and often adopt shady schemes to obtain
possession of tho picture of some lady or gen
tleman of prominence, who has unfortun
ately becomo the subject of town gotsip.
That is one reason why ladies particularly
dislike to see their photographs prominently
exhibited in a show window, the butt of
vulgar criticism and a target for the pencil
of any skillful lithographer in search
of a pretty face for a calendar plate,

A fellow of that stamp came into my place
recently. He was apparently a stranger, and
carried a small alb gator gripsack, suspended
by a strap from one shoulder. He was al
lowed the privilego of looking at specimens
of large work. After a time I thought he
was acting strangely, and approached him to
inquire into his movements. As I stepped up
I heard a peculiar click and tumbied to the
trick at once. Tha fellow was working a de
txriive camera on me, but as I grabbed bira
by the shoulder I quickly made him open
that grip and hand out three plates which
he had ta'ten. The outfit was a beautiful
one, and although I am familiar with
cameras of that class, I never saw one that
was so nicely furnished on the outside.

Results of raying for Newapnper Work
'by tho Ynrl" The Jtohruilnii" Hope.
One of the most demoralizing features
; of newspaper work is the space system as
it is practiced in m.try newspaper flices.
It may be the cheaiest for the paper, but
it is neither fair to the writer nor tho
public. Under tho space system the man
who knows enough to stop when lie pets
! through has no show. Iho successful
i writer is the man who can reel his story
off through a wearying eternity of ver-
bfhire. and who has the skill to write so
that it is dilT'.rult to cut his matter down.
Thus the public, which, pays lor Uie pa
pers, frequently gets 11 minutely circum
stantial and heavily padded account of
some mutter which might well be con
densed into a few lines. Quality doe3
not seem to enter into tho question, and
brains are sold, like calico, by the yard,
and they do not bring much better prices
in some markets,- either. Tho supply of
; wordy writers has become so much in ex-
' cess of the demand that space rates have
steadily tronc lower ntiu lower.
It is the conscientious men, too, who
Sillier most. Tho writer, honest to his
paper and himself, who writes his story
for all it ititworth and no more is handi
capped by the facile "fakir," who luts the
knack of writing columns and saying
nothing. Again, the unfairness of the
space rule is seen in the fact that in most
offices the writer has 110 guarantee as to
the size of typo his mutter may be set in.
It may begin leaded and run down to
solid, or a story may be finished in a
smaller face of type if the exigencies of
make up demand it. Uho Harper's sys
tem of S10 a thousand words is fairer,
and, in a weekly publication, is the only
method of fair compensation which can
be made.
But the great objection is the element
of chance in the space system, which tends
to demoralize the working newspaper man
and keep him poor. His "string" may
only measure up $20 this week, but there
is always the glowing hope of a "big sen
sation" next week, which will run it up
into the eighties or hundreds. As a mat
ter of fact, the working journalist makes
as much money as the average young pro
fessional man. But his business makes
him a gambler in spite of himself. He is
always looking for a change in his luck.
He may stumble on to a "big story" to
morrow, which will pay all his debts and
enable him to take a vacation besides. It
is not from choice that there are so many
Bohemians in journalism. They are
forced to Bohemia by the men who buy
their work. The ambition to make large
papers has been one cause of the space
system. The value of a newspaper has
come to be judged, not by the amount of
news it contains, but by the number of
pages its news items are stretched out to
cover. When news is beaten out to cover
so much space, like gold leaf, it becomes
very thin. The Journalist.
Making an Artificial Si!k.
Chardonner recently announced to the
French Academy of Sciences the results of
his experiments in making an artificial
silk, which aro certainly of a remarkably
ingenious nature. To a solution of nitro
cellulose (gun cotton) in alcohol and
ether is added a solution of ferr-
nose chloride in alcohol and also some
alcoholic solution or tannin. The liquid
thus obtained is ejected from fine ducts,
like the apparatus in 11 silk worm. As the
thread comes from the duct it is received
in water acidulated with nitric acid, from
which it. is drawn out, dried rapidly and
reele J np. It can be obtained of any color
by coloring the mixture from which the
thread is made. This new thread is trans
parent, pliable, cylindrical or flat, and in
nnpearance and feel like silk. It is very
strong. It burns, but the lire does not go
beyond the place heated. In every way it
is a remarkable invention, and no one can
tell to what it may lead. New York Mail

Cjilchiiic Kunaway Slaves.
I learned yesterday a historical canine
fact, which will, I fancy, be as new to
some of my rcat'ers as it was to me. A
negro stevedore, as strapping and power
ful a fellow as I have seen for a good
while, fell into conversation in my pres
crce with a bulldog, remarking that be
had a great fondness for dumb animals.
He seemed to greet the dog as nn old
friend, and be displayed considerable fa
miliarity with that kind of beast. Nat
urally I joined in the talk, and the man
told me that down in North Car'lina,
where he was a slave in slave days, bull
dogs, sometimes white and sometimes
brindle, were trained to catch runaway
or refractory "niggers" by the neck. And
they did it so nicely, he said, as not to
break the skin or soil the captive's shirt
collar: they would hang on until told by
their masters to let go, but without doing
any injury. Uoston I'ost.
Earthquakes Terras Nerves.
Many persons who experienced the
earthquake in the Riviera have since
snflered seriously from nervous shock.
although they did not at the time appear
to be greatly disturbed. This indicates
that more injury may be done to the
nerves by an undue excitement than is
perceived at the time. The nerve centers
may, as an English medical journal sug
gests, be likened to batteries, and re
garded as aDt to be discharged suddenly
and sometimes unconsciously; and when
once their residual stock of energy 13 con
sumed it can be restored only after a long
time and by the exercise of extreme care.

Japan's Foreign Improvements.
The regeneration which Japan has in
recent years experienced, through the in
troduction of foreign improvements, is
credited to the United States. While
eminent Frenchmen have been called in
to organize the army, Germans the schools
and English the navy, to Americans have
been given the supervision of the depart
ments of finance, postofflce, telegraphs,
railroads, telephones and lighting by
electricity, embracing the newer and more
progressive arts. American institutions
are ia high favor in Japan, with the
possible exception of modern politics and
baseball. Cincinnati Commercial Ga

The blood of dying gladiators in the
ancient amphitheatres was popularly be
lieved to be a remedy for the "falling
sickness," or epilepsy. It was eagerly
drunk while still warm by the sufferers
from the malady. The practice denounced
by Celsus as a '-miserum auxilium," has
not died out even in the Nineteenth cent-'
ury. Dcs Etanges, in his edition of the
Roman Hippocrates (Paris, 184G), men
tions the then recent case of an old epilep
tic woman in Sweden who, on the occa
sion of a criminal being guillotined, was

when the head was severed from the body,

tined for her cure, Chicago New.
