A new instrument for the treatment
of coughs, colds, catarrh and lung
troubles is being introduced in the city.
The instrument and ruetkod of using the
modicine by it, is a new scheme by
which to vaporize whatever liquid is
used, and the medicated vapor is to be
inhaled from a glass tube. We believe
it to be a good thing, but we would like
to give a little advice to those who have
not heard this new treatment explained,
ar.d as we were victims ourselves, we
feel duty-bound to our fallow-citizens
who haye not yet heard of the instru
ment and it good works to itive them a
little advice which we trust may be
thankfully received. Secure your arms

STRANGE SYSTEM OF SIGN3.
now Convicts Communicate In Spito of
Close Surveillance An Example.'
Incidents that must necessarily follow from
intercommunication often happen in peni
tentiaries, where the rules are rigid and sur
veillance so close tnat a convict is never
from under the eyo of a guard or taskmas
ter. Ho matter to what extremo the rule
prohibiting conversation between convicts
may be enforced, they find somo means by
which to inform themselves of what is going
on or what is to occur. But, more than this,
a convict may conceive the idea of escape or
revolt, and for bim to communicate it to
one he wishes to have as an ar. complice is not
difficult They bring others into the plot or
plan until twenty or thirty know it, in tho
details for the carrying out of which each is
assigned his particular part. This necessi
tates a thorough explanation of the minutiae
aud calls for a system of communication for
which a limited use of signs would not an
swer. Tho system, whatever it is, involves no
doubt an elaboration of signs, aided when
ever chance olFcrs tho means by written com
munication. ' The secret use of tho latter
means for expressing ideas and purposes will
not account for tho completeness of informa
tion convicts obtain of what tukes place in
prison walls, for, whether anything occurs in
the oQleo or tho most distant part of the pri
son, within fifteen minutes there is not a con
vict who does not know all about it. Penk
tentiary officials have tried again and again
to obtain even a clew to tho system, but they
are no nearer a solution than when they first
began to investigate the matter. They know
there is a system, and that it rests on signs,
but whether on those niado with lingers, eyes
and lips, or the bringing into play of other
features, or whether it depends on all to
gether, they do not know. .Prisoners, to
curry favor with the officials, often tell them
what they havo learned from other convicts.
They go to especial trouble at times in expos
ing plots, and are readj to reveal everything
except the means by which they learned tho
facts. No convict has yet given tho slightest
suggestion which would lead to the discovery
of the secret that has defied tho shrewdest de
tectives. "I have seen," said an ex-prison official,
"two convicts, six feet apart, facing each
other. They did not utter a word, nor could
I discern the slightest movement of the lips
or eyes, yet I knew they were communicate
ing something. They gazed at each other for
a minuto or two before I had a chance to in
terfere, but I am satisfied that one told the
other all he wished to telL Three or four of
them will be standing around a stove or to
gether in other places of the prison, and yet
with sufficient distance between them to lead
one to think that they have nothing in com
mon, but while there is not the least sign of
conversation observable they are talking to
each other in their own way." Indianapolis
Work That Lasts for Afire.
Die sinking is carried on to a large extent
in New York and the work turned out from
the' various establishments is, already ac
knowledged in the market to be of the ' very
highest order. The material from which the
dies are usually made, either brass or steel, js
first turned into the desired shape in a lathe.
Steel has to bo submitted to a certain process
called annealing, by which it becomes soft
and pliable. The letters or figures, as tho
case may be, are then traced on the metal,
aiter which the gr&veur is brought into play.
This tool must be highly tempered, pr else
it will fail to do the work marked' out "for
it on the steel plate. The artist who. attempts
die smking must needs be temperate in his
habits, as a steady hand and clear eyesight
are two necessary requisites, should success
bo the object tq be attained. ' The cutting pf
the various letters and designs cannot bo
rushed, as the artist must work slowly to ob
Dies are used for medals, rubber stamps,
seal presses, wax and notary seals, ribbon
stamps, stencil alphabets and various other
necessaries of mercantile use. Many of the
6tel dies cut for medals bring a high Prieej
and when any sort of a fine piece pf work u?
turned out the die usually brings as much as
$.-0. Tho greatest number of dies nowadays
&ro used in the cutting of rubber stamps,
and, although bringing a faht price, not
many duplicate orders" are received, as tho
metal will wear a lifetime, should it not meet
with a mishap or the stylo change, which I
sometimes the case. Now York Mail and Ex
press. Oyster Sharp in Congress.
The oyster is Washington's most popular
food. It is a great" favorite among public
men. To most of them the fresh, juicy oyfr:
ter of Washington is a laovelty. Tho west:
erners and the members from tho interior cf
the south, speaking generally, never saw an
oyster in any shell except that made of tin,
until thoy cama to the capital. Their slay
here always kills their taste for canned oys
ters. For three hours in the middle of every
day the two restaurants at the Capitol are
crowded with members and senators, stand
ing or sitting before heaps of Lynn Havens
(ind Blue Points.
A few months after tho beginning pf his
term in congress and in oyster eating tho
back country member becomes extremely
particular about the nativity and freshness
of the bivalves set before him. He likes to
have a wondering and admiring listener on
such occasions, a constituent in a fctate of
primitive greenness on the oyster subject.
Some of the congressional waiters, always
decorous and patient, have to provide them
selves with large sleeves in which to hide tho
aughter that such experiences inevitably
excite. It is a fad like unto that adopted by
an occasional callow snipper snapper who
questions and discusses the wines that were
born a century before ho was. Boston
Popularity of Sensationalism,
Sensational fiction writers of the better
class are having their day, and a pretty big
day, too, it seems. Not only are tho daily
papers encouraging them, but also the liter
ary weeklies, and even the monthly maga
zines which assume high dignity. The fact
is recognized that sensationalism that is to
say, stirring incident, adventure and excite
ment is popular, and that it is popularity
which pays. The bear story and Indian talo
have invaded the columns of periodicals -of
the high class devotee to young people, and
it is found that while these may not teach as
much morality as tame fictions about good
and bad little boys and girls, they meet a
much greater public demand, and that is
I what the publisher's eye is riveted upon.

The present year bids fair to be a dis
astrous one from tornadoes and wi nd
storms. This is fore-fchadowed by the
number of storms we haye already had
the most destructive one so far this year
having occurred at Mt. Vernon, 111.,
where a large number of buildings were
destroyed or damaged. The exemption
from tornadoes last year renders their oc
