Some one writes to the 3f. T. Tri
bune asking: "Are the expressions t
better serve," to correctly understand,
to carefully protect,' etc, grammati
cally cor; act, or, if not ungrammatical,
are they elegant The Tribune an
iwers that "the ezpressioni cited and
all others of similar construction, are
utterallr ungramatical and inelegant,
and should be scrupulously shunned
by ali writers and speakers of the Eng
lish language." Jim in altogether too
j weeping it is the utterance of a mar
tinet of language. The genius of th
English tongue is its freedom from
rigid grammatical fetters, and it is now
fortunately escaping from the artificial

between the auxilarv and the verb ir

1 lie Colors of Cigars.
One of the most interesting things to
me, being an ex-member of the trade,
is to study the simple little brands o:i
the ends of the cigar boxes in the to
oacconists' stores and wonder how
nany of the people who use the con
tents know the meaning of the won)
"claro," etc. Nowadays a smoker call)
for a light, medium or dark colored
cigar as his fancy dictates. To tlx
lealer, however, there is a nicer and
more exact method of naming th
jhade. "Claro," for instance, standi
for the lightest shade of all and is most
ly found in the cheaper grade of two-
fers. About the palest in color of the
ordinary cigar is the "Colorado." Then
somes "Colorado Maduro," next
"Maduro," and lastly "Oscuro," which
is the darkest heaviest cigar made
The "Colorada Maduro" and "Maduro"
shades are the most sought for in the
best grades of domestic cigars, while
consumers of imported brands run to
"Maduro" and "Oscuro."
It seems difficult to get a really good
imported cigar that is not dark colored
All of them are strong, and while many
men effect the darkest, high priced
kinds, I believe that but few of them
really enjoy them. As good a cigar a?
any man need smoke can now be bought
for ten and fifteen cents. A few ex
perts may find value and solace in a
tin foil covered twenty five cent weed
but when anything over a quarter is
paid it is money thrown away for or
nameuts like tin foil, band, fancy lin
ings to box, etc. At present prices ol
tobacco and labor a manufacturer
can't put a value of fifty cents in out
cigar unless he folds in twenty-five
cents' worth of postage stamps, and
yet many people smoke these expen

is purified, but that a new, fresh am

the air of that room noxious in an in

mothers and housewives not only t
give instructions, but to personally set
that the upper sash of at least one win

(From u interview, N. T. World.)
In an interview with a leading drug
house the N. Y. World, Nov. , 1890,
gives the following comment on the
proprietors of reliable patent medicines:
"lie is a specialist, and should
know more of the disease he actually
treats than the ordinary physiciau; for
while the latter may come across say
fifty cases in a year of the particular dis
ease which this medicine combats, its
manufacturer investigates thousands.
Do you suppose his prescription, which
you buy ready made up for 50 cents,
is likely to do more good than that of
the ordinary physician, whocharges you
anywhere from 82 to 810 for giving it,
and leaves you to pay the cost of hav
ing it prepared?
"The patent medicine man.too, usual
ly has the good sence to confine himself
to ordinary, every-day diseases, lie
leaves to the physiciau cases in which
there is immediate danirer to lite, such
as violent fevers, lie does this because,
iu the treatmeut of such cases.there are
otber elements of importance besides
medicine, such as proper dieting, good
nursing, a knowleugo of the patient's
strength and so on. Where there is no
absolute danger to life, where the dis
ease is one which the patient can dia
gnose for himself or which some physi
cian lias already determined, the patent
medicine maker says fearlessly: '1 have
a preparation which is better than any
other known and which will cure you.'
In nine cases out ot ten Ins statement
This is absolutely true as regards the
freat remedy for pain, St. Jacobs Oil.
t can assert without fear of contradic
tion, that it is a Di'oinot and uermanent
cure of pain. It can show proofs of
cure chronic cases of 20, 30 and 40 years'
standing. In truth it rarely ever tails
if used according to directions, ami u
large proportion of cures is made by
halt tne contents ot a single uoiue. it
is therefore the best.
