Wc would call your attention to the
growing opinion among the medical
profession, that many diseases of the
stomach arise from neglect of the
teeth. It has betn demonstrated be
yond a doubt that decaying teeth
throw off a deadly poison which if ab
sorbed into the stomach impedes nat
ural digestion, the obvious results of
which are seen in dyspepsia with all
its attendant evils.
Wo have made the care of the teeth
a study in one of the '.est schools m
the world, "The New York College of
Dentistry" and are prepared to do all
kinds of work belonging to the pro
fession in the best manner and at very
reasonable prices. See our card.

Treatment of Earns.
For the severe burns often receive ! j
in firedamp or powder explosions, Herr
Fuller has used the following treatm-J-.-t i
with the best success: Tin; person first
has a warm bath, then the burnt part-
and their neighborhood , are wa-hed
with a solution of thymol, then sprin
kled with thymol for a fev minute.
Tiic vesicles formed are not tonel.e 1.
The raw surface 13 painted with liuee 1
oil containing 1 per coat, thymol. The
patient is placed on n caoutc one nnt
tress, or supported so as to avoid pres
sure on tho burned pert. Thymol is
applied at first every ten nrnutes, with
a broad, soft brush;" it relieves tho paia
greatby. During the lirst davs it is al
so repeatedly sprayed. Witen the
vesicles have shrunk and dri"d (in
about ten days), they are opened w.th
disinfected scissors, while thymol is
sprayed; then tho thymol oil above re
ferred to is applied.
The Depressing Results of Flying
Take. 0113 dream and hope that for
centuries has vainly puzzled people,
and assume t!iat that may bi realized.
Wiiat if the next century should see
aerial navigation a fact and man should
be able to lly! Very many believe that
this certainly will bo a. c-nnplis'ied at
some time or other, and many of our
greatest discoveries have conic suddm
Ty when they did come. Let us have
the power of self-propulsion through
tho air, with tha speed that would bo
involved in progress tlirougn so light a
medium, and tho changes that would
follow are too many and sweeping for
the imagination to tako in at once.
Let it be fairly accomplished and it
would probably bring on, to begin with,
the greatest liuaneial crash ever soon.
It is a little in tho lino of historical
irouy that the lirst result of the full
power to rise should be depression.
Aerial navigation would mean paraly
sis to tho railroad interests which havo
become such a monstrous power in tho
country. Turn the air into a highway
like the ocean or tho lakes, and the "day
of railway dictation, indeed of railway
business, is over. So vast investments
cannot be abandoti3d without tho ut
most linancial disturbance. B it tho
final effect of courso would bo bene

Tho lad was a dead shot, and entered
upon the work with a relish. Nearly
every stroke marked tho demise of ono
of the hated pests. But after a little
there was silence for a space, and then
suddenly a re.souu-fng whack.
The outraged parent chipped his

and shouted iu high O, as he drew tho

Periods of Infectiou3 Diseases.
Dr. Richardson, of London, has been
giving the sanitary institute some of
the results of his recent researches as
to the periods of the incubation of in
fectious diseases which the sanitarian
had to combat. He said there wero
twenty-six diseases of this kind, with
periods which might fairly be called
regular. Incubation was the tun which
intervened between the acceptation of
the poison that caused the disease and
the first manifestation of its effect.
Diseases might thus be grouped ac
cording to their stages of incubation
into live classes shortest, short, me
dium, long, longest. Tho shortest pe
riod was from 0110 to four days; under
this head came plague, cholera, malig
nant pustule and dissection poison.
The second period was from two to six
days, and under this head came scarlet
fever, diphtheria, croup, erysipelas,
whooping-cough, influenza, glanders,
and pyamiia. The medium period was
from four to eight days, and in it are
included cow-pox and relaxing fever.
The long peri al had ton to litteen days,
and included in it measles, mumps, ty
phus, and typhoid. The longest period,

A Beautiful Idea.
In the mountains of Tyrol it is tho
custom of the women and children to
come out when it is bedtime, an I sing.
Their husbands, fathers and brothers
answer them fntm the hills on their re
turn home-. On the shores of tho Adri
atic such a custom prevails. There the
wives of the fishermen cmio down
about sunset, and sing a m dod-. Al
ter singing the first stanza, they listen
awhile for an answering melody from
off the water, and continue to sing and
listen tiil tho well-known voice conies
borne on the waters, telling that tho
loved one is almost home.
A Grand Palac3.
Lord Bute is building a .splendid pal
are at Mountstuart, near R othsay, in
Scotland, on the site of the old house,
which was destroyed by lire nearly two
years ago. The new house, which is
built of red sandstone, in the Gothic
stlo, from the plans of Mr. Anderson,
of Edinburgh, will b-J 2iJ0 feet in length,
and is to have live stories; the external
walls afe to bo five feet thick. The
grand entrance hall is to bo adorned
with magnificent columns of marble
ami alabaster, and tho marble to be
used in tho house will cost at least
250,000. The laying of tho founda
tion has cost SoO.OOO, and it is proba
ble that the palace will not be complet
ed under $1,-'50.000.
There are no less than 1,233 f -male
clerks employed in the Treasury De
partment at Washington. Their sal
aries range from 1,8 rO to $180 per
annum. In several other departments
female labor is largely utilized. Ac
cording to the New York llcruhl there
are no less than 75,000 women, not
including domestic servants, in the
City of New York who support tbeni

The Deceitful Kangaroo.
Lamb like as is the face ef tho kan
garoo, tender and soft as aro his eyes,
ho is by no means as jrentle as ho looks,
says tho Loudon Globe. Like the
heathen Chinee, his countenance belies
him, and there are few more exeitiug
and withal dangerous sports than kan
gar o shooting.' To the htiuter seeking
for some no.v sensation, a visit to the
wilds of Austra'i.i in search of kanga
roos can be recommended. It retpiin s
a tleet horse to run au "old man" down
if he gets a fair chance to show tail;
ami strong, well-traine I dogs to tackle
him when brought in bay. Inside his
soft, dewy lips nre strong, formidable
teeth, which can bite severely. His
forepaws, weak as they seem, can lift a
dg high in air and crush him to death;
wiiile, when King down, his favori'c
lighting attitude, ho can kick with his
po-.verad hind legs in a manner that
raj.i dy clears a circle round him; and
w.-o betide the man or dog that comes
whidn reach of tlio-e huge claws.which
can make a tlcsh wound deep enough
t maim the one or kill the other. Of
course, we hero speak of tho great
kangaroo, the boomer, or old man, oi
the colonists. As a matter of fact,
there are s me thirty eliffcrent kinds of
kangaroos in habiting various parts of
Australia, and one species peculiar to
New Guinea. They vary in size from
the tiny hare kangaroo of South Aus
tralia, the most agile of its kind, which
is but little larger than a rabbit, to the
several giaut s-poeies, whether black,
red, brown or gray, some of which
stand nearly six feet high.

when the census was taken, where as
the 1G chapels, with accommodation
for 15,290 worshippers, had congrega

of jersons present, excluding officials
and poor attending for relief, was only

In the summer of 1877 I was admitted
