Once In Awhile.
A man of common sense and a doc- '
tor at that said: "The liver Is misun
derstood and underestimated in Its
functions. If It can be kept clean and
active there Is no reason why wo
should ever be 111 a day, and we should
live to be 150 or 200 years old. It Is not
necessary to rip this organ all to pieces
with ten grains of calomel to get It
stirred up. The best thing to do is to
shut off your food supply for two or
throe days, drop your whisky and
claret, your tea and coffee, and givo
your liver a chance to rest. This should
be done once a month."
It Is well known, of course, that In
olden times the liver was supposed to
bo the seat of the affections. .Friends
when they met in the morning did not
salute each other with "How's your
health?" but with "How's your liver"
Men take horseback exercise principal
ly for their livers. A good shaking up
every morning drives away tho clrrho
tieblliary encroachment. It Is an error
to assume that whisky alone produces
cirrhosis. Overfeeding is more often
the cause. If the digestive organs
would organize a union and work only
eight hours a day all of us would bo
healthy and long lived. The trouble Is
we require the liver, stomach, bowels,
heart, brain, muscles, nerves, kidneys,
spleen, etc., to work all the time and
overtime. Wrong. Give them a rest

The Primitive MoIIhmIh That Are Still
In Uno Iu Ilurinii.
The system practiced for obtaining
rubles In the mining districts In Bur
ma is of the most primitive descrip
tion, says the Searchlight. The mining
shafts are simply holes about two feet
square sunk to a depth varying up to
fifty or sixty feet. The shoring up of
the walls of the shaft is most crude,
the sides being supported by posts at
tho corners and branches of small
trees secured carefully against tho
sides by moans of stout sticks.
The miner carries a tin pot similar In
shape to a Munt edged cono on his
head. He squats down In one corner
and digs between his knees lu tho op
posite corner. Tho earth, or byou, as
tho ruby bearing earth Is called, Is
conveyed to the top as fast as It Is ex
cavated In small buckets let down
Tho apparatus for raising ami lower
ing the buckets Is simple In tho ex
treme. A stout bamboo post about
twenty feet high, called a maungdlne,
Is fixed upright in tho ground at a con
venient distance from the pit, or dwin,
and a long, thinner bamboo pivoted
horizontally into the upper end of It so
as to project an eighth from the mine
and the long arm toward the mine.
