severe cold and requires precisely
the same treatment. Kemain quiet

This remedy also counteracts any
tendency of la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Among the many

the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to learn of a single

says Mr. Jas. O. Jones, publisher of

latter case I used . Chamberlain's

considerable success, only being in
bed a little over two days, against
ten days for the first attnek. The
second attack, I am ratsfied, would
have been equally as bad" as the
first but for the use of this remedy,

DRAFTY ENGLISH HOUSES.
In England Homes Are Devoid of Mod
ern Comforts or Conveniences.
The average dwelling house in any
class upper, middle or lower built
within a year is constructed almost pre
cisely on the lines in vogue at the begin
ning of the century. In England there
has been "in ninety years no such ad
vance in domestic architecture, with re
gard to both convenience and style, as
we have noted in the United States in
the last decade. The Englishman . may
explain this by alleging that he built
better in 1800 than we did in 1882. In
this he will not be altogether wrong,
but he will be supported by fewer facts
than he imagines.
The British carpenter has not yet mas
tered the art of making a window.
There is always a gale blowing in around
the sashes during the winter, whether
the outside air be calm or raging. The
more heat you get in a room and by
lamps and gas you can contrive to raise
the temperature the greater is the rush
of cold air from without. It forces its
way around the window sashes and the
doors in obedience to a natural law.
An English house is draf ty, whether
it be the dwelling of a peer or a peasant
The doors are hung even worse than the
windows. In the first place there are no
thresholds, and there is a gaping space
between the floor and the bottom of the
door. The room in which 1 am now
writing has an admirable specimen of an
English door. I have just measured the
yawning crevices around it. Between
the floor and the bottom of the door
there is a space one-half an inch wide,
extending across the entire breadth of
the door. Around the other three sides
of the door there is a space one-quarter
of an inch wide. All the doors in the
place (which is not the work of a "jerry
builder," but is what the British call "a
high class" and expensive structure) are
hung in the same fashion. Imagine,
then, the number of portieres and thick
rugs necessary to exclude the drafts.
The halls of an English house are un
heated. Drafts are accordingly increas
ed, for the cold air will always rush
from the chilly halls into the apart
ments of high temperature. Screens,
portieres, rugs, heavy window hangings
are essential in every room. Of course
these things darken an apartment. Thus
you can only break the currents of air
in a London dwelling by adding to the
depressing gloom of the almost sunless
An American housekeeper setting up
an establishment here misses the nu
merous and capacious closets of the
Yankee domicile. Closet making is an
unknown art to the Nineteenth century
British builder. I know of any number
of new and expensive dwellings both
flats and houses in which there is not a
hanging closet. The most you can do is
to provide a few cupboards in the
"chimney jogs." For clothing you must
have wardrobes set up in your rooms,
monopolizing space and being as cheer
ful to gaze upon as sarcophagi. Odds
ai;d cuds you must stow away as best
you can. Cellars, in the American sense,
are unheard of. A small dungeon for
coals or a penitential cell for wines ful
fills the British housekeeper's notion of
a cellar. "Set tubs" are usually reserved
for the "mansions of the great."
The bathroom is the latest innova
tion in English houses of the better
class, but it is still an innovation. The
clumsy tin tub, a yard and a half in
width and six inches in depth, continues
to be the Briton's favorite instrument
for the matutinal ablution. In this un
wieldy contrivance, brought into his
chamber in the morning, John Bull
takes his frigid splash. His aversion to
bathrooms is akin to his horror of ga3
"above the drawing room." J. B. pre
fers to go to bed by candle light. He
has a notion that gas will suffocate him
in his sleep. Perhaps he cannot trust
himself to shut off the illuminant by
turning the "tap." London Cor. Boston
Several Common Phrases.
Some of our idiomatic phrases are
amusing rather than didactic. Take, for
instance, the very common remark mad ?
when some one of the company has told
a harmless secret "You have let the cat
out of the bag." It is at once a figure of
speech and a picture, but a veritable
bugbear to a foreigner not versed in the
mysteries of our language. The sam.;
idea is expressed in another idiom.
"You've tipped up the apple cart." A
phrase that has an expressive meaning
is one which epitomizes whole volumes
of advice "Keep a stiff upper lip."

marked a handsome millionaire bachelor
to a good looking girl.
"But you never will have." she as
serted. "Why not?" he asked, somewhat t;;ken
"Because," and she smiled in a way
that fascinated him, "every chance in
your case is a whole one."
It was the merest chance nhe took,
but it netted her a million ami a man.

A Story of the Lata A. T.' Stewart.
I was a young lawyer at tho time,
about as poor as a home missionary. 1
had to go to tho lato A. T. Stewart's to
take hi signature to an affidavit. He
Figned and 1 swore him; then ho wished
to know how much there was to pay.
In view of what took place afterward, 1
am justified, I think, in saying that
what Mr. Stewart exacted me to say
when he asked "How much?" was "Oh.
that's all right."
But I didn't say that; I said, "Seventy
"What?" shouted Mr. Stewart.
"Seventy-five cents," I answered
"I won't pay it," said he. "You've no
right to ask so much. The price is a
shilling, and that's all I'll give you."
"But, Mr. Stewart," I replied, "a shil
ling is tho price when you come to my
office. I've come to jrour store and I've
a right to charge for my car fare and a
reasonable amount for my time. Seventy-five
cents is really a very small
charge, Mr. . Stewart, a very small
"I won't pay it," he persisted. "If
you want a shilling you may have it.
but not one cent more."
I got angry then. I gave him one
look, with which I intended to convey
the idea that I held him in contempt.
Then I said: "Mr. Stewart, you are m
poor man and I'm a rich one. Twenty
five cents is nothing to me and seventy
five cents is & fortune to you. I'll make
you a present of that seventy-five cents
that you owe me."
Then I made my best dancing school
bow and walked off. Interview in New
The Effectiveness of Modern Onnav
The prominence given to a lecture by
the German doctor, Dr. Billroth, on the
wounded in war, has induced Mr. Archi
bald Forbes to write on the' subject.
Dr. Billroth estimates that of the cas
ualties at Weissenburg and Worth dur
ing the Franco-German war, 80 per cent,
of all the wounded were caused by rifles,
15 per cent, by the large guns, and not
quite 5 per cent, by the lance and sword.
Mr. Forbes, however, says that the sta
tistics for the whole of the war on tha
German side prove that over 00 per cent,
were due to rifle fire, about 9 ier cent,
to artillery, and about 1 per cent, to cold
The smallness of the mortality from
the French artillery is explained by the
fact that their artillery was notoriously
badly served. Dr. Billroth believes that
the future will Bee a still greater pro
portion of deaths resulting from rifle
fire than from shell. Mr. Forbes points
out that, in doing so, no account lwts
been taken of the probable use of highly
destructive explosives in the shells of
the future. Army and Navy Gazette.
Tlie First Protestant In Japan.
The first Protestant Christian in Ja
pan was one Murata, a military retainer
of the Lord of Saga, in the southern is
land of Kiushiu. In 1860 he went to
Nagasaki, by order of his chief, and one
evening, as he was crossing the harbor
in a boat, he picked up a book that was
floating about in the water. The writing
ran from side to side, "like the crawling
of crabs," and upon sending it to one of
the Dutch tnen settled at Nagasaki, ho
learned that it was the Christian Bible,
then a proscribed book. Curiosity spur
red him on, and ho had one of his as
sistants learn the language of the book
and translate it for him, sentence by
His study was continued in secret,
with a few friends, after his return
home. When a difficult passage was
found, a messenger was sent to Dr. Ver
beck, a well known missionary then in
Nagasaki, for its interpretation. Murata
was afterward baptized, and his name
now stands first on the roll of Protes
tant Christians in Japan. London
Women Taking the Places of Men.
In Holland men can no longer be
trusted to work the switches on the rail
ways, and women now fill their places.
This is a slap in the face indeed to the
male sex, and a great triumph to the ad
vocates of female labor. But we have
yet to see how tho thing works. The
men say that there will now bo looking
glasses in the switch boxes, and that the
women will never leave them till they
have smoothed their last hair and settled
the bow of their last ribbon, and that in
the meantime there will be collisions;
that when left to themselves they never
have been in time for the train as pas
sengers, and will not be more punctual
as pointswomen; and, finally, that if they
hear their lover's whistle anywhere ia
the neighborhood they will pay very lit
tle attention to that of the locomotive.
If these objections are not valid, con
clude the men, "we are not Dutchmen."
An Old Fashioned Phrase.
There is an old fashioned phrase of
hospitality which consists of only two
words, and I find it a parallel to the
Greek salutation, and like it, a com
mand. "Sit by," says the comfortable
New England farmer to his guest be
neath his roof. Now compare this com
manding phrase with the more modern
polite question, "Will you partake cf
refreshments?" which is as empty and
void as a Chinese invitation, and throws
the choice of acceptance on the guest.
One is the living soul of speech, the
other a mere dead formality. Detroit
The Death of Christ.
a book entitled "The Physical
Causes of Christ's Death," the writer
states that Christ died from a broken
heart, so that, when the soldier pierced
his side, blood and water flowed out,
which whould have been an impossibility
if no rupture had taken place.
