The Habit of Mouth Breathing.
It is certainly remarkable that so
little has been written on a subject so
important as mouth breathing. It ap
pears, Indeed, that Dr. Cassclls, of
Glasgow, communicated, four years
ago, an interesting paper on this topic
to the Edinburgh Medical .fouriuil, but
tho scope of that essay was confined to
the consideration of the habit as a
cause of atiral troubles. It has been dis
cussed, also, from a general sanitary
point of view by Mr. Georgo Catlin,
well known as the portraycr of Indian
life and customs. But wenow have for
the first time an exhaustive treatment
of the subject by Dr. Clinton Wagner.
Dr. Wagner begins by pointing out
that man is by nature a nose breather,
the practice of mouth breathing being
acquired through carelessness. Ignor
ance or a local trouble which renders
nasal breathing di Hi cult or impossible.
The unweancu infant always breathes
through its nose; unless it did the act
of sucking could not bo performed.
From observations made by Honscll in
the Freiburg clinic, it appears that in
healthy infants tho mouth is almost al
ways closed during sleep, tho tongue
lying in contact with the hnrdpalntcnnd
the mouth not acting as an air passage.
The relation which the nose bears to
the functions of respiration is too often
overlooked by persons suffering from
bronchial or pulmonary disorders. It
can easily bo verified by experiment
that the air in its passage' through the
tortuous channels of the nose is raised
to the temperature of tho body before
it reaches tho larynx. No matter how
low tho temperature may be, the senso
of cold is never experienced below the
border of the soft palate so long as
breathing is carried on with closed
mouth. Moreover, tho air thus inhaled
is moistened by tho natural secretions
which cover the turbinated tones in a
condition of health, and the short,
bristly hairs at the orifices of tho
nostrils act as a filter or sieve to arrest
dust and other impurities which the air
may contain, and which if drawn in by
tho mouth, may act as an exciting
causcjin developing laryngeal.bronchial,
or pulmonary trouble. It is oven as
serted that man can inhale through his
nose for a certain time mephitie air in
tho bottom of a well without harm;
whereas if he openod his mouth to
answer a question or call for help, his
lungs are closed, and he expires.
The causes which lead to habitual
mouth breathing are to bo looked for in
tho nose, mouth or throat. Until re
cently tho methods of examining tho
nose were so imperfect that a correct
diagnosis was, in many cases, imprac
ticable; but now, with the aid ot the
rhinoscopc aud by means of a strong
reilectcd light thrown up through the
nostrils, dilated by a proper speculum,
it is possible to rocognize auy obstruc
tion to the passago of air. Some in
stances of congenital, imperforate nos
trils are reported, and tho like occlu
sion may be caused by a cicatrical
contraction from scalds or burns. For
eign bodies, too. touch as buttons, seeds
or stones, may lodge in tho inferior
meatus, which is tho passage chiefly
concerned in breathing, and thus pro
duce complete or partial closure. A
general thickening or hypertrophy of
the mucous membrane, covering the
turbinated bones, such as is found in
chronic nasal catarrh, would, in some
cases, completely shut up one or both
passages. Indeed, a slight congestion
from an ordinary cold may so nearly
close the air channels that breathing
through the nose becomes for the time
very difficult. The mouth is therefore
resorted to, and thus tho pernicious habit
may be unconsciously acquired. Among
the mouth causes which interfere with
proper nasal respiration the most com
mon are enlarged tonsils. The glands
press tho velum upward and backward
against the posterior wall nf the
pharynx, and prevent the passing of air
from tho nose to the larynx. Irregular,
uneven or protruding teeth, by ob
structing perfect closure of the mouth,
may also give rise to tho practice of
mouth breathing.
Dr. Wagner tells us that habitual
mouth breathers can be at once recog
nized, as the'practico stamps itself in
delibly on tho physiognomy. The re
tracted lips, open mouth, roccding
gums, protruding teeth, diminished
size of the orifices of the nostrils, tho
wrinkles of the outer angles of the eyes,
and the lines extending ironi the wings
of the nose to the angles of the mouth,
'gives the persons addicted to this habit
a silly, and, sometimes, idiotic expres
sion. The nasal ducts, being .vacated,
"like disused roads that grow up to
grass and weeds, become the seat of
polypus and other diseases; the sense
of smell is greatly weakened or alto
gether lost; the contour of the nose is
changed, and it acquires an unde
veloped or atrophic appearance. The
sense of hearing may be affected, the
injury ranging from slight impairment
to' total deafness through habitual
mouth breathing. According to Cas
sellrtho air must pass through the
ose, otherwise it can not reach the
tympanic cavity. Dry sore throat is
one of the most distressing diorders re
salting from tho habit under discussion.
rJThe practice known as "hawking" is a
fanihar symptom of this trouble. Tho
hawker is always a mouth breather,
and the unpleasant sound is made in
V4heesort to dislodge the hard, dry and
mucus from tne pnarynx and
of tne moutn. in ail
is caused by nasal
wvjMnMtt disi
should adopt the practice followed by
Indian squaw of closing an infant's
mouth by gently pressing the lips together-
People of ma'urc age also need
to be impressed with the necessity of
persistence in the practice of nose
breathing. For thoo who are i&mzied
to keeping the mouth open for breath
ing during sleep only, it is suggested
that compulsory closure may bo suc
cessfully carried out by means of a
linen or leather support for the lower

Pernicious Literature for IJojs.
Tho baneful effect of the pink and
yellow-backed literature on the sus
ceptible mind of boys is made striking
ly apparent in this citv from day to
day. Tho number of fads who run
away from home to be free from all pa
ternal restraint and seek such adven
tures as their fancy may suggest, is by
no means on tho decrease. Bradford
has been nrtdo an objective point for
numbers of these young runavay.s from
all sections of tho country. Almost
daily during tho summer the police
have been in receipt of telegrams and
letters of inquiry from anxious parents
and the authorities in other cities con
cerning boys who have disappeared
from home. I:i quite a number of in
stances the lads have been fouutl here
antl restored to their friends. Their
arrest has almost invariably been effect
ed through descriptions of the boys
furnished by their friends. Such adepts
do tho boys become in evading the
truth when" questioned by the authori
ties that it is necessary to have further
evidence of their identity than the
statements which proceed from their
youthful lips. A cao occurred one
day last week that is not without many
parallels during the spring antl summer
months. A man named Monro, resid
ing in Oil City, apprised the police of
his son, aged thirteen, having run away
from home. The father thought it
probable that the lad had made
his way to this city. A description of
the boy was lurnished, ant. the officers
soon found the lad in company with a
squad of other boys in the lower part
of the city. The youth at first assumed
to bo surprised, anil claimed that ho
could not be the boy in question. The
police have long since learned to ileal
with such caiea. and the litflo fellow
soon conceded that ho was tho run
away. He had been wandering about
for some time, and finally readied this
city by stealing rides from station to
station on passing trains. . He. had in
his possession a small sum of money
about thirty cents. This was ample,
however, tho lad stated, as ho had no
difficulty in procuring food without
money antl without price. Some of tho
boys about tho city of his own ago pur
loined articles of food at homo and kept
him well supplied. In return for this
young Mohre permitted the youthful
commissariat to peruso a pink-backed
book on which high treasure was
placed. Tho titlo of the book was tho
"Slang Dictionary of New York, Lon
don and Paris." It contained an ex
tended list of tho technical lingo of
tramp3 and thieves " used in the lead
ing cities of tho world," with theit
meaning and application. Also a se
cret system of enumeration and writ
ten communication, with portraits
of celebrated criminals and sketches
of their lives. There were in the book
numerous illustrations of garroting,
"cracking a crib" and cuts showing
how other criminal acts arc performed.
A nioro pernicious book to place in the
hands of a boy ranging in age from ten
to sixteen years cannot be conceived.
After acquiring tho arts and language
of this work, some of tho bo3's had in
contemplation tho foundation of a
band of venturesome spirits to go forth
and lead a vagabond lifo, and depend
on criminal cunning and new recruits
in othor cities where they might so
journ for subsistence. It was certain
ly a fortunate thing lor some Bradford
parents that tho youth owning tho book
and having views on the organization
of a school of young thieves, was ap
prehended and sent safelv homo to his
parents. It would bo well, indeed, for
the parent of tho boy to adopt meas
ures to keep him at home and guard
against his procuring literature such as
was found in his possession. There
aro a number of runaway boys who
reach Bradford after whom no inquiry
is made or anxious parents seek, at
least so far as known. Somo of these
boys remain hero for weeks and months.
Th'ey readily fall in with tho news
boys and bootblacks, and manage
to gain money enough to buy
food. They practico tne "lifting
art" in trifles merely to gain ex-
Iicricnce and skill. Thcro is a
arger growth of boys from sixteen
to twenty, who adopt tho guise of boot
blacks to quiet the suspicion aud carry
on their questionable modo of life. The
younger boys find them capital precep
tors. They havo all tho characteristics
of "hoodlums," and cunning sufficient
to escape detection in many of theit
petty criminal acts. Some of these per
sons by times fall into the hands of the
officers aud get their deserts. While
tho number of boys who run away from
home, and are immediately souglit after
by their parents, is quite large, those
after whom no care seems to be taken,
or a least no inquiry is made, is, indeed,
much greater. In this working-day
world there seems to bo many parents
indifferent to the welfare of their sons.
Tho tendency of these boys is directly
to the bad. Sufficient has been shown
in this city, from time to time, to make
it plain th'at these boys, or at least nine
tenths of them, drift into the army of
tramps and thieves. The police can do
little to romedy tho evil, because the
boys demean themselves to escape ar
rest and avoid detection. Even should
it bo known that they arc runaways,
their parents failing to make demand
for them, and their homes boing un
known, nothing can be done to restore
them. Bradford (to.) Era.
Making Newspapers.
Thcro is nothing in tho paper,"
said a young friend, dashing' it to the
floor. " No news at all; it's miserable,
stupid." Look again, my desr friend,
at the carefully-printed columns, the
different headings, foreign, home and
domestic news, the wit and humor.
Think, for a moment, when you gaze
at it, how tho editor has tried to pleaso
you. There is probably no class of men
more overworked than these, no labor
more wearing than mental labor. It is
so easy to cry out: "Nothing in the pa-
Ser,"Jor those who know little of the
radgery, the painstaking, the hours
of mental weariness, the tedious com
positions. It is a common thing for
a person, when not ..exactly suited, to
exclaim: "There is nothing in the pa

hours in the yard or on the lawn, antl
watch them "that they do no serious

common sorU. are no belter for ram

fully grown, if they arc well taken care

Turkeys will not submit to this treat
ment with so good grace. Their very
nature leads them to seek the mount

they arc the better. They aro not,
neither can they ever be, a yard fowl.
For these truly noble anil valuable
birds, when kept aud reared in largo
numbers, a keeper is necessary to fol

manner large numbers may be raised

through it) and tho water therein fresh

The great dependence in the poultry
line lies in our common fowl, tho great

Their eggs aro white in color, and no

botlies arc double ami triple the size
It is a noticeable fact that many of our
smaller birds produce eggs that rival
in sizo some from their competitors.
There is a vast difleronco in the tex

fed and fattened on tho same material.
Gooso flesh is not duck, neither is it
turkey, but simply goose meat, and
oftentimes poor anil strong of favor at
that, especially tho oily or lalt' portion.
The flesh of the Brahma frequently re
sembles goose more than the fowl. Tho
texture also is coarse and stringy. What
is required of fowl meat, sinco it is
rather a dainty and not a stand-by like
beef and pork to feed the hearty labor

game-like, with a lino favor that is not
found in all our domestic birtls, but
confined to tho few choice pure breeds.
Wo may not havo this at all times

size. Tho largest bird is not always to
be desired. There are, however, one or
two large breeds that unite the several

A good story reaches us from Bel
gium, the truth of which is guaranteed.
A banking house at Vcrviers recently
received a letter from a bank at Buda
Pesth. Tho recipients knew that it re
lated to a matter of the greatest im
portance; but, unfortunately, they
could not master tho contents of the
missive, as it was written in the Hun
garian language, aud there was not a
soul at Verriers who understood that
tongue. Accordingly, one of the part
ners took a journey to Brussels, expect
ing to find everything he wanted at the
Capital, but only to be disappointed
nobody at the banks could read Hun
garian. There was, however, still the
Austro-Hungarian Embassy, whither
the banker oetook himself, to learn
that there was an attache who spoke
Hungarian, but he had goie to Biarritz
for somo sea-bathing. Almost in de
spair, the hero of the story called upon
the Burgomaster, with whom he was
acquainted, and related his troubles.
After some thought his worship, strik
ing his forehead, exclaimed: "After
all. sometimes our most foolish ideas
prove the best" With this enigmat
ical observation he asked for the letter.
The next day he returned the original
to tho gentleman from Verviers, with a
translation in French, in a neat, fem
inine hand. "To what Hungarian fairy
do I owe this good fortune?" asked the
delighted banker. "This is an affair
involving some millions, and I shall be
happy to pay a handsome douceur to
the translator who has enabled me to
get at the meaning of the letter in time
to conclude the affair." "1 take you at
vour word." replied the Burgomaster.
"Give mo 10,000f. for the poor of Brus- j
sels, for the translator is none other
than the Queen. She has experienced
lively satisfaction in employing her
knowledge of the Hungariac language
to oblige one of her cobjects." The
Queen of the Belgiscc is a daughter of
the Archduke Joseph, whose beneficent
rule of Hungary is still remembered by
the people, and she was born in the
capital city during her father's palatin
ate. Manchester (Eng.) Examiner.

A Poor Traioling Dross.
What would one think of a mother
who provided for her daughter's trav
eling outfit, over a very long, rough
journey, where she was to meet nil
vicissitudes of climate and weather,
only a flimsy ball dress? It might bo
very beautiful in fabric, an I adorned
with abundance of the choicest dowers
and sparkling gems, but it would be a
miserable failure as a traveling dress
and wc should almost think thu woman
deficient in sound sense who should
provide it for stub a purpose.
But is it any more sensible to smd
our girls out over the rough journey of
life with onlv a stock of accomplish
ments to meet the wants of this c cry-

poorly it answers in the wear and tear

Don't buy everything for tho girls.
Truatthem with the moneyafter giving
them as much good advice asyou please.
Let them learn how to buy by actual

you have to. Said a boy of a brother
skater, who had met a tumble: Let
him fall down. That's the way to
learn." It is the wav wc all learn a

bleach it antl make the best of it; but
learn the lesson also of avoiding that
alluring, deceitful shade in the future.
Let her learn to make bread from the

It is not needful to go through tho

used to beating eggs to a froth with a
knife, waiting all day for bread to rise,
and so on, in a world where cr beaters
are to be had, and Vienna cast-cakes
which will answer the purpose of rising
in an hour or two.
Let her eschew cream-of-tartar and
soda when good baking powder is to be
had, and adopt all similar improve

most at home. The deposition of a
sailor, who w.ts soon to die. had to be
taken at his bed-side in Brooklyn, ono
day last week. "How long." tht ex-
Judge snapped out as the l.rat question
on cross-examination, "do you think it J
was after the vessel left the wharf be

Thcailor was himself something of a
character, and not so near death but
that he appreciated the vital importance

"How do vou generally measuro tea

Tlie old sailor turned slowly in bed
and eyed his questioner. Then he
turned back again and said, indifferently:-
"Waal, sometimes wid a watch and
sometimes wid a claack."
This made the lawt-er a little mad.
He jerked his watch from his pocket
and said, in a querulous, high-pitched J
voice: "Uh.vou do. oo your

The sailor slyly wlnkel at the lawyer
on the other side, and he took in the
situation in an instant and made no ob
jection. Tho ex-Judge stood with his
back to a mantel on which a little clock
was quietly indicating the time to the
sailor, who lay facing it.
"Aye, aye' the sailor said, aal re
mained silent.
