New Zealand's Opinion Regarding
British inactivity at Aula.
San FiiAxtT.sco.Cil., Feb 17. A closer
perusal of the Australian ami New Zea
land jurnalH, received here by ktcatner
yesterday, show that almost without ex
ception, editorial expressions are strong
and iu many cases bitter, as regards the
actions of the Germans at the Stunoan
islands. The Auckland (Xew Zeuland)
New of January 12 says: "A more
humiliation and derudim; xpectaele than
this of British warships cowed aud
bilenced in the presence of German out
rugo is hardly to be conceived, and a
perusal of the incidents which have oc
cuired in .Samoa, and tlic vaporing and
violence of theae p.-ople, who have shown
their unfitness for colonial extension by
tluir rough, unreasoning and arrogant
treutment of interior and weak races, is
enough to make the blood of every
lJritisli biibji ct hoil with sham-J and in
tlignatiou. Had England not been com
mitted to a maintdiiiance of the treaty
lights o f Samoa, no blame could have
attached, us it u her comluct is shameful,
and the presence of British warships at
Samoa, silent and motionless in the pres
ence of the Germans who arc proceeding
iu their hauded and law-lei's fashion, is
degrading to the British navy. We may
'be disposed to accept with a grain of salt
any of the statements as to events pro
ceeding, which emanato from writers
heatcdin the contest; but in the face of
tiie fact that there was peace in Samoa
till the German? set up a usurper on the
throne, and the fact that a vast majority
ot the people are in revolt against the
usurper, and the further fact that the
faith, word aud strength of England
were pledged for the maintenance of
Samoan independence, the present atti
tude of England in Samoa is paint ul and
humiliation to the lrst degree."

Dear Sir:- I received .a copy of your
p per a few days ago issued January 28,
and in looking through the columns I
find that my fri'-nd, D. B. Smith is a
candidate for the largested footed man
in the city, of course it is too late now to
help Mr. Smith but I will say this much
that if Dan did not get the shoes they
were not given to the one that deserved
them. I can say that Dan was blessed
with a poodly amount of his body
turned out to walk on, and he ought to
have leen awarded the 6hoes and a
"darned big' pair of them too. Please
publish this in your paper. Yours Re
spectfully, - IIardt Cariutiiers.

Bread is not the etafT of life to many
,eople of civilized nations, because they
do not eat it. Baked loaves of bread are
unknown in many parts of South Austria
and of Italy, and throughout the agri
cultural districts of Roumania. Not
many miles from Vienna bread is never
seen, its place being taken by sterz, a
kind of ioiridgo made from ground
beech nuts, w hich is taken at breakfast
with fresh or curdled milk; at dinner
with broth or fried lard, and w ith milk
again for supjier. In the north of Italy
the peasantry live chiefly on polenta, a
porridge made of boiled maizo. It is in
every sense the Italian peasant's daily
bread. The Roumanians eat a mams
liga, made of maizo and like the polenta
except that the grains are not allowed to
settle as in the Italian diS".. Sterz is
also know n as lieiden and takes the place
of bread in Corinthia and many parts of
the Tyrol. Good Housekeeping.
Dr. Abbott's Amende Honorable.
The newspapers also mirror life as it is.
They report in full all the murders,
crimes and horrors that happen around
us. I w ish they would not give so much
space to these things. Often when we
want a small Meissonnier cabinet picture
wo get a broad, startling painting, done
with the brush of a sceno painter. It is
said that the newspajrs of today do not
tell the truth, and I think there is not
one of us w ho has not seen at Borne titne
or other in his evening Eagle reports
about himself which ho thinks aro not
correct, but when wo consider that the
.newspapers now take in the whole
world, I marvel that tnoy aro correct as
they aro. There b as much truth in them
as thero is in the preaching. Laughter
and applause. J Lyraan Abbott at Frank
Donnelly's Note Rook.
Ignatius Donnelly doea not trust to Ids
memory for all the odd anecdotes and
funny 6tortes with which ho elaborates
his 6peecheson any and all occasions,
but ho follows the example of Abraham
Lincoln and keeps a note book which is
full of them. Ho keeps, the note books in
a drawer at homo and looks them over,
not only when he wants one for a
speech, but whenever he gets blue. He
says that Ids note books arq bettey medi
cino than anything the doctors can pro

seen the inside of one of Mr. Donnelly's
note books s:iy3 that when the sage gets

Why. IIo Did Not Write.
Thosepersous in whom certain senses
aro defective have often greater cause
for repining than 13 generally supposed.
For example: one young lady who is
very near sighted has often been told
by her brother that he perceives that to

point of a joke.
Thomas Landseer, the brother of the
famous animal painter, was perfectly
deaf during the last rears of his life
When his brother Edwin was at one
time traveling abroad, some one remon

brother, as lie had promised.
"What's the use?" was the reply
"lie's too deaf to hear from us."
The Largest Gold SToies in the World.
At Lead City, near Dead wood, Law
rence county, are located the largest
gold mines and mills in the world, the
"Homestake." The ore bodies mined by
this company Bhow a working face from
200 to 400 feet wide, sinking to an inex
haustible depth. Six hundred stamps,
crashing SO.000 cubic feet of rock every
twenty-four hours, drop incessantly, day
and night, in the mills, without an inter
mission even for the Sabbath. During the
ten yeare in wliich the mines of the
nomestake combination have been op

Symptoms mill Treatment of the AO lo
tion iu Its Earfy Stages.
During the winter season bronchitis is
one of tho most common affections. It
is essentially an inflammation of the
bronchial tubes, but it rarely occurs
alone; the mucous membrane lining the
throat and upper part of the windpipo
are, as a rule, affected about the same
In the majority of cases an attack of
bronchitis is preceded by a cold in the
head. The inflammation, which 6tarts
in the nose, travels downward, affecting
tho throat more or less, and very soon
enters the bronchial tubes. When those
are reached there are added to tho symp
toms of a cold a sense of tightness and
of soreness or rawness in the chest.
Those unpleasant feelings are aggravated
by tho cough, which is at first dry, hack
ing and quite constant. As a rule, tho
person who is suffering from an attack
of bronchitis is somewhat feverish, or,
at least, inclined to ciaUy. lie has
less appetite than usual, feels dull and
heavy and disinclined to exertion. Those
who have bronchitis generally complain
of a dull, aclung pain in tho back and
The cough, which is at first dry and
painful as some say "tearing" gen
erally loosens up in from one to two
days, and then the patient "raises" quite
freely. The coughed up matters are
generally of a yellowish or greenish
color and salty taste; then they become
quite yellow. As soon as tho patient
"raises" easily he is at once relieved; the
pain and soreness disapiear, and he goes
rapidly on to recovery.
Acute bronchitis is usually caused by
taking cold. If ono is suddenly chilled,
an attack is very likely to occur. By
too severe and sudden cooling of the
bsdy the blood is driven frpm. the sur
face to tho Internal organs. The lining
membrane pf the bronchial tubes is very
easily congested in that way. Consider
ing all things, it naturally follows that
bronchitis is more prevalent after sudden
changes in the weather and when the
came is moist and cold.
When an attack of this disease comes
t n the sufferers who treat themselves, as
a rule, direct their efforts entirely to
stopping the cough, without giving
much thought to the trouble that ex
The remedies which they usually take,
while bringing, perhaps, some relief, yet
more often do more harm than good,
and really in the firfc stage of acute
bronchitis there is seldom great need of
what passes under the head of cough
While there i3 soreness or rawness in
the chest, the patient should be confined
to his bed and kept on a light diet.
Mustard poultices should be applied,
morning and night, and left on imtil the
pain from them is intolerable. After
they are removed, a towel wrung out of
warm water should be applied, and over
that a dry one laid, and then several
folds of flannel.
In the meantime, unless the cough is
incessant, there will scarcely be &ny
need to give medicine for it, and cer
tainly, if any are used, they should be
wise ly selected. Flaxseed, tea is an cx
cellent drink, having a soothing effect in
such caries. It should be taken often and
in considerable quantities each day.
If the patient not under the care cl
a, physician, and will not consult any,
notwithstanding his cough is very trou
blesome, keeps him awake, etc., he
might ha VP put up at the druggist's a
mixture of the sweet spirit of niter, par
egoric and sirup of ijx-cac, of each one
half ounce. Of this mixture the dose
for an aduit is one teasioonful. and it
may l taken every two or three hours
i:i a wjrj:- iasa of water.
After two or threo days, when the
cou.;!i ha3 become soft and loose, and
the soreness and rawness in tho chest has
disappeared. lhc:i, "instead cf the medi
cine ad v used, the tirup t;f wild cltcrry
'.xir's should bo taken, in teaspooaful
doses, every three or four hour;;. If
there is much to raise, "it will be well to
take also of the siru of squills one-hali
a tcaspaonful three or four times a day.
If one guards against exposure the af
fection is likely to subside quite rapidly;
less and less is raised until finally the
amount of secretion is near that in
health and the cough disappears. Yan
The Story of a Play.
One of the- most successful of recent
plays fell into the hands of Charles Over
ton, who offered it to A. M. Palmer, the
manager of the Madison Square theatre,
and whose judgment as to the value of a
play is second to no one's. While Mr.
Palmer admitted that the piece possessed
many elcmenta of success he did not
think it was a piece destined to have a
long run. However, be agreed to run
the risk of it being a success pro
vided Mr. Overton would permit him to
produce the piece at the Madison Square
theatre without having to pay any roy
alty. After that, if successful, Mr.
Palmer agreed to send the play out on
the road. Every one familiar with
theatrical affairs knows that "Jim the
Penman" is one of the strongest plays on
the road today, and will also remember
the phenomenal run it liad at the Madison
Square theatre. It is estimated that Mr.
Overton and the Madison Square Theatre
company together have made over $200,
000 out of it. New Yorfc Cor. Philadel
