Jum 200 years ago there lived, at
the court of Prima Ferdinand de Med
ici, a I'aduun harpsichord maker, by
came Hartollomeo Cbristoferl, a man
of great inventive genlua. After In
numerable experiment be solved the
problem, a lung (standing puzz!e to the
muelral Instrument makers of the pe
riod, how to make a satisfactorily
working "keyed psaltery," and by the
method he Invented of overcoming the
difficulties inherent to the task, pro
duced an instrument which was the
undoubted ancestor of the pianoforte
of today. For the piano is, in essen
tial, says a writer in the Cniversal
Magazine, a dulcimer with a fitted key
board; it is not simply a modification
board; it is not simply a modification
of the old harpsichord. The latter, it
la true, did possess a keyboard, but
the depression of Its keys caused a
"plucking," harp-like action on the
Ftrlngs nnd not the striking of a ham
mer, with controlled rebound, the pe
culiar character of the newer instru
ment. From 1709 the (lute when
Christoferi made hla four "keyed
psalteries" the piano, at first slowly,
but afterward by leaps and bounds,
went on Increasing and Increasing in'
popularity, until now its manufacture
has become a great industry.

In the district court, Boston, Judge
If. W. Hragg decided the other day
that a man who stands on the plat
form of a railroad car could not be
forced inside and dismissed a com

action brought by a rahroad company,
who alleged that defendant, by re
fusing to enter the car when ordered
so to do by a servant of the company,
and who persisted in such refusal
until force was employed, thereby
committed a breach of the peace.

KILLING TO CURE PATIENT.
The Old-TJtne Method of Weeding Feb
pie to U.alh.
All kinds of cures for rheumatism,
from baling to vibration, are now be
ing exploited. This disease, Judging
from the amount of space devoted to it
in the public prints, Is getting to be
more and more a common complaint
"Tip"' seems to fairly revel In new
and wlerd cures for the affliction, and
the patent medicine advertisements
set forth a tempting list of remedies.
Probably the reason that people with
rheumatism did not talk so much
about it In the old days was for fear
the doctor would be called in. One
has only to look over an old medical
hook to realize that a visit from a doe
tor a hundred years a go was no Joke.
Here is a book on "The Practice of
Physic," printed in Edinburgh in 1784
a hundred and seventeen years ago.
It is written by the foremost doctor of
his time, William Cullen, professor in
the University of Edinburgh, "First
Physician to His Majesty in Scotland,''
and member of ail the learned socie
ties. In its day "Cullen's First Unes"
was the greatest medical text book in
the English language. Now this is
what Dr. Cullen would have done to
"Tip," or any other seeker after a cure
for rheumatism. The learned doctor
says: "The cure requires in the first
place an antlphloaJstic (inflammation
cheeking) regime, and particularly a
total abstinence from animal food and
from all fermented or spirituous
liquors; substituting a vegetable or
milk diet. Blood-letting is the chief
remedy In acute rheumatism. The
blood ought to be drawn In large quan
tity and the bleeding to be repeated in
proportion to the frequency, fullness
and hardness of the pulse and the vio
lence of the pain. For the most part
large and repeated bleedings during
the first days of the disease seem to be
necessary." In addition to these gen
eral bleedings the doctor recommends
local bleedings wherever there appears
any "swelling or redness." New York
St. Jarobs Oil fur Chest-CoMs, Itroa
olilt la, Croup and l'leorlar.
An outward application for bron
chial difficulties Is many times far
more effective than syrups, cough mix
ture, cod liver oil, &c, simply because
Jt penetrates through to the direct
cause, which Is, as a rule, an accumu
lation of matter or growth tightly ad
hered to the bronchial tubes.
St Jacobs Oil, possessing as it does
those wonderful penetrating powers,
ables it to loosen these adhesions
and to Induce free expecto.-ation. Cases
have been known where expectorations
have been examined after St. Jacobs
Oil has been applied, and the exact
formation was clearly shown, where
the adhesions had been removed or
pulled off the bronchial tubes. All Ir
ritation of the delicate mucous mem
brane qf the bronchas la quickly re
moved by the healing and soothing
properties of St. Jacobs. Oil. In cases
of croop and whooping cough in chil
dren St. Jacobs Oil will be found su
perior to any other remedy.
St. Jacobs Oil is for sale throughout
the world. It is clean to use not at
all greasy or oily, as its name might
imply. For rheumatism, gout, sciat ca,
neuralgia, cramp, pleurisy, lumbago,
tore throat, bronchitis, soreness, stiff

PiiMlo SJ trimming Pool Dangerous to
The dangers of the public swimming
pool should not be forgotten by those
suddenly interested In the subject of
cleanliness among the poor of the
cities. The proper methods of bath
ing are four: (1) By the bath in
ocean water at the seashore. For only
a very few of the entire people, and
for but one-fourth of the year is this
possible. Such bathing, like many
other kinds of bathing, is not for
cleansing the body. (2) Iiy the bath
tub with pure water, possible only for
the well-to-do, and a limited number
in public bath houses. (3) By
the spray or rain bath, the sole meth
od advisable In public baths, and es
pecially if supported by the benevo
lent, by the state, or by city appro
priations. (4) By means of sponge or
towel at home, even with only a few
gallons of water. This method should
be encouraged by hygienists, physi
cians and all those who would dis
criminatingly help forward the cause
of the public health. The free swim
ming bath for the vast majority of our
people Is Impossible to provide if the
water shall be pure, and it is impos
sible to keep the water pure when It
is provided. We leave out of tha count
the not-to-be-sneered-at fact that un
less tho bathing 13 done unclothed,
soap and cle nliness are not thought
of, and, even at best, modesty, that
hardly-won virtue, Is not encouraged
in public bathing. The only Incontest
able fact Is that the public swimming
pool Is a danger to, not a promoter of,
the public health. The newspapers,
the politicians and the selfishly charit
able are right in their efforts to en-
courage cleanliness, but the mere de
sire to do good nowadays does not pre
vent the flanl result from showing
wasted effort, and, not Infrequently,
positive evil. Science should ballast
our sontimentalisra, and nowhere more
carefully than In socialistic experi
ment and fervors. Philadelphia Am
King of Denmark's Palace.
Fredensborg ie the largest of the
King of Denmark's palaces. It has an
imposing exterior, and Is surrounded
by wonderful avenues of limes, but is
extremely simple in lta Interior ar
rangements. The bedrooms are small
and furnished in the plainest style, and
there are hardly any dressing rooms or
wardrobes. A very wonderful , view
may be had frutr. the palace roof,
which Is made entirely of copper. This
metal Is much used In Copenhagen;
lome of the steeples have copper steps
py which they can be ascended. Rosen
Dorg had a handsomer exterior than
Fredensborg, and la full of beautiful
artistic objects, Including, It is said,
the finest Venetian glass In the world.
Serum for Hnake Hit.
Dr. Calmette, the director of the
Pasteur Institute at Lille, Is the dis
coverer of a curative serum for snake
bite. He was severely bitten recently
by a poisonous reptile, and at once
gave himself an Injection of hla cure.
His hand swelled badly and acute fever
et In, but during the same day he was
well enough to attend a meeting of the
general committee of his department
tad to make an argument In favor of
t grant of money to a sanitarium
which he baa founded at Lille. On the
following day he was perfectly well,
having thus afforded In his own per
son, albeit unwillingly, a convincing
proof of the efficacy of bis remedy.
