. Fever :i!nl Ague,
Thf Journal f Health, in speaking
of fever and juc.sajs: "It is men
prevalent during the spring and f:ill
than at other seasons. Tin- reason is
thai the changes of temperature arc
then more sudden ami more frequent
Thwaxe persons who have lived many
yftars in fever and ague distiicls with
out having had the disease, u ith
proper care and attention all might
avoid it. An oliservanceof these simple
rules would generally wan ofi this dis
ease: Avoid cximsure to the- damp air
of the early morning and eailv evening,
except when exorcising, and then d-
not remain' iiTTfie open air to coo'i oiT.
Avoid great fatigue. Sleep eight hours
out of twenty-four, lie sure that the
"water used for drinking and cooking is
perfectly pure. "Wear flannel under
clothing at all seasons.
Tonne lever and ague take twelve
grains of quinine at one dose, ahout an
hour before the chill is expected, .lust
one week from that hour lake another
twelve grams of quinine. The disease
will seldom return. This is the dose
for an adult. Chi Mien should ink'
smaller doses aecoiding to th(ir age.
The reason that decided doses of ii
nine cure fever and ague seems to be
that the disease receives a shook which
breaks it. ismnd doses of quinine only
hold it in cheek during the time the
medicine is being taken; a? soon as it
is suspended the disease usual ret urns.
TlVnce the popular notion that the
quinine only -feeds" the disease. The
fault is no. with the medicine, hut the
manner of admin interim; iL "While we
do not believe in encouraging Ihe em
ployment of luedicine. we are hound to
say thai quinine, periodically adminis
tered, has proved the oidy "dead shot"
for fever and ague in our practice."

small sums, and leaialh sent in the

loss of these small sums, and the igno

a deal of suffering and disappointment.
Ides of March.
In ".Julius C:e--ar." Act IV., cene .!.
Jtrttfiis says to Capitis: Beinember
March; the ide- of March remember."
The ides were one of the three epochs
or divisions of the ancient Roman
montli. The calends" were the first
days of different months; the "ides
were the middle of tke month, and the
"nones" the ninth day before the ides.
Savs Welster: "The ides fell on the Kith
day of March. May, July, and October,
and the Will day of the other months."
Eight dajs in each month often pass by
this name, but only one strictly receives
it. the others being called the days
before the ides, the third day from the
ides, and so on backward to the eighth
from the ides. The Romans used a
very peculiar method of reckoning the
days of the month. Instead of employ
ing the ordinary numbers, they distin
guished them by the number of days
intervening between any given day
and the next following of the fixeu
divisions. Ides is from the obsolete
verb "iduaro." to divide, because the
ides nearly divide the month. The
plain English of lirutiis's remark to
Caxsius. according to the above inter
pretation is: "Remember 'March; the
middle of March remember." Bostori
