A Cure for Sllcs.
Among the most troublesome aud
often noticed affections are what are
known na hordeolum , or common sty.
Dr. Louis Fitzpatrick , in the Lancet ,
differs from Bomotof his' professional
brethren , who persist in ordering the
application of poultices , batliing with
tepid water , etc. These , no doubt , do
good in the end , but such applications
have the great disadvantage of prolonging -
ing the career of these unsightly sores and
encourage the production of fresh ones.
Dr. Fitzpatrick has found , after ninny
trials , the local application of tincture
of iodine exert a well marked inilnencf
in checking the growth.
This is by far preferable to the nitrate
of silver , which makes an unsightly
mark , and often fails in its object. Tht-
early use of the iodine acts as a prompt
abortive. To apply it the lids should hr
held apart by the thumb and index fin
ger of the left hand , while the iodine is
painted over the inflamed papilla with a
line camel hair pencil. The lids shoitlil
not be allowed to come in contact unti
the part touehed is dry. A fewapplica-
cations in the twenty-four hours is suf
Shaved by Sections.
A commercial drummer , with several
heavy cases in hand , panted into "Ward's
barber shop , Trenton , N. J. One side
of his face had a several days' growth of
whiskers , "while the other side was per
fectly smooth. He threw himself into H
chair. "Shave me , " he said brusquely.
The astonished barber began to adjust
a cloth about his neck , looking at the
drummer's face mean while with eloquent
4'Been'in the barber chair once this
morning , haven't you ? " queried the bar
"Twice , " Raid the stranger correcting
him ; "once in Philadelphia and once in
Bristol. Got my face lathered in Phila
delphia and then saw I couldn't make
my train unless I started. Got the bar
ber to wipe off my face , and I ran and
got on just as the train was moving. At
Bristol I thought I'd have time to do
some business and get shaved and catch
the next train. Got through with my
business , ran into a barber shop , got
lathered again , and got half my face
shaved , when I heard the train coming.
Jumped up and paid the barber , and
again had my face wiped off , and struck
for the depot and got the train just as it
was moving. People on the train looked
at me and then turned away and whis
pered. They thought I was aa escaped
lunatic. I want a close shave , please ,
and take your time to it. I'm going to
make up for this helter-skelter business
in the morning. " Exchange.
Proud of his Young Bride.
A correspondent who was a passenger
on a Michigan Central train bound west
from Detroit the other day says that at a
small station near Kalamazoo a strapping
youth boa'rded the train , leading by the
hand a blushing rustic maid. Taking
his stand in full view of everybody , he
orated : "Ladies and gentlemen , this is
my wife , Mrs. Heuffer. Ain't she a dai
sy ! " lie proudly exhibited his prize to
the amused observers through a iif -mile
ride with an exemplification of the en
ticements he had used to win her. Ar
rived at Buchanan , the happy pair alight
ed in the presence of a large crowd as
sembled to greet them. Again the groom
announced : "Ladies and gents , niy wife.
Ain't &he a darling ! " 'As the train moved
out the passengers waved their handker
chiefs and applauded , and the linppy-
it pair were left to their rare and bingulai

Prominent People Who Swore.
President Lincoln did not use prof nu
language. Andy Johnson could swe.-r
and did'swear , roundly and llneui'-v
So did Mr. Stautonaixl Sir. Seward. S > i
also , Mr. Fessendeu. HenryViipoi. . ,
when his feelings were wrought up , as
they were , for example , when Coll.ix
was nominated for Vice President at
Chicago , would swear a little oath as
though he were half ashamed of it.
General Grant didn't swear , neither did
Garfield. Mr. Randall does occasion
ally. Judge Kelley has been known to
forget bis early religious training. At
torney General Brewster can swear flu
ently in three languages. Eli Perkins
says that Don Cameron was never known
to utter a profane word , but then Eli
Perkins was never known to tell the
truth. Oliver P. Morton was determined
in his profanity at times. Mr. Hayes
swore only iu his mind , and then only
in the abserce of his wife.
Expounding the Scriptures.
Little Sammy Peterby went to chnr."h
last Sunday and did not behave h'uiself
as decorously as ho should hafo do'e.
His father , who is an Austin editor , re
buked him for his levity , but the little
fellow insisted that he listened to every
thing the preacher said.
"Then , Sammy , I suppose you re
member the text. "
' 'Of course I rftnembcr the lext. I
don't remember the words , pa , but I
know pretty near what it was. "
"What was it , then ? "
"If a man smites you on the right
cheek , smite him on the left ; audjof
such , is the .kingdom of Heaven. "
A happy family : "I suppose , "
the man in the easy chair , ' -that my
and I are the most contented couple you
ever saw. Wo never quarrel about
nothing. She is always willing to gel
up in the morning tnd build 'the i're. ,
Rud I am always perfectly willing to Jet
her. " :
Girl Barbers in Chicago.
"How did' the girls loam to shave
men ? "
"Oh , different -ways. I began pniutic-
ing on my brother lie hadn't any
beard , mid the first tiino I j-haved him
ho looked aa though a cycloue hiui
struck him. His face was cut in u dozen
places , and for a week he had tu sleep ou
his back. After I hud laid him up I
practiced on my young man. I didn't
lather his face , and when I got through
with him aud he looked in thw gla s ho
got mad and said I was a devil of a bar
ber , anyway , and went out of the honuc.
nud never came bucfc again. I kupt ou
practicing , though , and by the time I
was able to shave without slicing a man
1 had used up my father aid other
brother and two cats and a htraight-
haircd dog , besides another young man
and two young fellows who used to wait
on my sibter Jennie.
I don't think they have any lady bar
hers anywhere else in Chicago bur here
The gentleman who owns this place
thought it would be a great card to htiv
them. It luib worked very well , and he
is making dead loads of money. Nearly
everybody who conies here , except icgu
Inr customers , comes here for the fuu o
gutting shaved by ladies. I don't kuov
iiut that it is nicer , " she said , while she
showered the sufferer's face with set
foam and wiped it with a piece of coffee
"A great many young fellows come
r.ho have nothing but down on theii
cheeks. That reminds me of a joke one
of the girls perpetrated one day. A
young man with tight trousers and ai
eyeglass came in about a week ago with
a stock yards dude. He looked arouiu
leisurely for a minute or so and then bait
to his friend ; 'Beastly bad , John , you
know , to come heah , but it will be quite
jolly to say you have been shaved by i
girl. ' Annie , who shaves in the nes
chair , is a very nice looking girl , and the
young swell took off his coat and stretch
ed himself out in her chair. 'I say , Mary ,
ho said , 'how do you shave , upor down ?
Annie winked at me and 'then looked
carefully at his face , and then said : 'We
usually shave up , sir , but in this case
guess I'll have to &havo down , ' and she
put so much stress upon the last wore
that the other young man burst out
laughing , and wa laughed , and every
body laughed , and the swell in the chair
looked &o silly you would have thought
somebody had sat down on him. I've
nearly finished now. Only a little was
on your mustache , and then I'm done. "
She took the ends of the incipient mus
tache between her thumb and index
finger as she spoke , twisted it around
ouce or twice , and-with a "There , live
cents , please , " dismissed the young man
with a smile and called "Next. " Chicago
How the Soldiers Risked their Money
on Long Marches.
"It was during the war that I learned
to play poker , " said Lawrence Cook , 'of
the Union Depot , to a Pittsburg Dis
patch reporter a few days since.
' 'Yes " said Officer " '
, Zimmerman , "that's
where I learned it , but I don't play
"Nor do I " said " '
, Cook. "I haven't
played cards for ten years. "
And then the two officers started off
intoreminiscenses of the days of the war.
"We used to have big pots , I tell you ,
then. Wo wouldn't get paid sometimes
for months , and when we did get our
money it added zest to the card playing
to make the stakes big. I've won $300
to 400 in a day or two and lost it again
as fast. And then the chuck-a-luck "
"Chuck-a-luck " Zimmer
- - , interposed
man. "Yes , I should say so. Why , J
knew a fellow \vlio would bring out his
chuck-a-luck and sweat-board every time
we had a ten minutes' rest on a march.
You know we used to have a ton min
utes' rest in every hour on a long march.
Well , this fellow would play every time
we stopped. You'd sec the men gather
around like a lot of flics around a drop
of molasses. Well , sir , I knew that
man to make § 1GOO in one day's march.
It was a mighty good thing it was paper
money and ( lidn't weigh much. "
"Yes , " said Cook , "I had a friend that
raked iu about $2,500 in three or four
days on u march and he played against
the game , too. "
"But then there were lots of follows
that lost , too , " added Zimmerman.
"Just after I had re-enlisted and bud got
part of the bounty money aud back pay ,
aud was waiting for a veteran furlough ,
a friend of mine , who lived where I did.
and had re-enlisted , too , got to playing
poker. He lost every cent , aud wanted
to borrow $25 from me. I wouldn't loan
it to him , but he got it some place. The
next evening he had § 500 : the nxt
evening he hadn't a cent. That's the
way it went. But the tima when thr
boys liked to play the best was during
the ten minutes' rest on a march. "
He Had Beeii to Detroit.
A chap who had been to Detroit seem
ed never to tire of telling his story , lie
had patrolled the city in every directicii ;
had been to Sandwich , and was drivi n
out by the intolerable smell of the min
eral spring : had gone from there to
Windsor in a street car , four miles in aii
lioiir and a quarter , including two stop- ,
when the car was off the track , and lie
had finally brought up in's saloon.
Here , at first , he was very wide : iwak i
