CopyrlRht , 1910 , bjr American 1'reai Ansoclntlon. the artist er sculptor the nose TO Is ail architectural affair , add- inc beauty and distinction to the countenance accordingly aa It conform * to his Ideals ot line and barmony. To the average man the nose Is situ ply the organ of small and an appa ratus through which ho breathes and occasionally catches cold. To the physician the nose Is ono ot the moat Important organs ot the body. iWhon in a healthy condition It Is a veritable "guardian of the threshold , " warning us against tainted food , sift ing our air and destroying microbes of disease , protecting the delicate throat and lung tissue from cold , dusty air by filtering , warming and moistening it and finally exerting a most impor tant Influence In regulating the body liciit. Importance of Proper Breathing , The nose IH a very complicated and Important apparatus , and any dis turbance of Its functions , If allowed to persist , Is likely to have serious ef fects. ( The most fiequont cause of nnsal obstruction Is the growth of adenoid / NOBBi 13 ONK OV THE MOST IMPOR TANT or.oANs or THB BOOT. tissue In the icof of the throat just behind the uusal si/jitum. This not only obstructs thu nasal opening into iho throat , but Interferes with the proper growth of Ilia septum and valises a deformity , "deviation of the septum , " which Is not apparent ex ternally , but often seriously obstructs the nasal passages In later life. This adenoid tissue Is very common , even among healthy children , and tends to shrink up aud dlsnpponr when the cnvlty of the thront rapidly enlarges at the nge of puberty , but the deform ed septum remains and can only be corrected by operation. The folly of allowing adenoids to re main until they atrophy and disappear Is quite apparent. Not only U the child's breathing capacity and chest development retarded , but remote ill ejects reaching Into later life often supervene If the child Is fortunate enough to surTlre the perils of fre quent cold * , bronchitis and consump tion. It should be remembered that if the nose Is obstructed by adenoids , deformed septum or enlarged turbl- nated bodies mouth breathing results , and the air Is not properly warmed and filtered before reaching the throat nd lungs. Such obstructions ire re sponsible for a vast number of throat and lung troubles. Danger of Gar Dieeaee. The eiutachiau tube , lending from the middle ear , opens just behind the outer margin of the nasal opening Into the throat. These orlflces are often pressed upon by adenoid tissues , and proper ventilation aud drainage of the tubes are prevented. This leads to deaf ness and sometimes to abscesses of the car and brain. The muco-purulent discharge from the nose so frequently present when adenoids exist Is also likely to Infect the eustachlau tubes , with similar re sults. If the nose and throat have not been properly cared for In childhood and deformity of the septum or obstruction from other causes exists expert advice should be sought and proper nasal breathing restored , If possible. The tonsils are now regarded as use less and often dangerous structures. They should bo removed , as a rule , when adenoids are taken out and espe cially when there Is a history of fre quent sore throat or tonsllltis. En larged tonsils are naturally Irritating -and obstructive , but often not so dan gerous as smaller adherent or submerg ed tonsils , which collect germs and In fectious matter. It is now believed that such tonsils arc often responsible for attacks of rheumatic fever , and a history of such trouble should always call for removal of the tonsils , whether or not they bare shown any evidence of disease. Prevention of "Coldi. " The most serious diseases of the throat and lungs , Including consump tion , often have their Inception In a common cold. While nearly all diseases of the air PHMXIICPS are directly caused by germs , there must usually bo present a lack of resistance , cither general or local before germ * can give rise to disease. In some o es a tendency to colda Is the expression of Hon Mtutlonal con < lltlllt | Kill ll " ' "Illslll W'l | . asthenia , etc. These conditions should Iwnys bo nought for and properly rented If present Local lack of resistance may bo [ inscd by the nasal obstruction and Ir- Iliitlon I have already referred to , iind holr correction Is necessary before ormanont relief from colds can be ob- ulncd. Danger * of Pampering , Oiordrosqlng for cold weather and verhoated living rooms are often re- ponslblo for frequent colds. Medium eight underwear should be worn and ho outer clothing adapted to changes i the weather. This does not mean Hat we hhould leave off overcoats in lie winter tlmo and be uncomfortably hilly In an endeavor to hard on the yrilom. Old people especially should ress for comfort in cold weather , but omfort can bo had without wearing envy mutilers around the neck and envy fur garments In ordinary winter weather. Value of Bathing. Tin ; morning cold bath Is a raluablo ncuHiiro for cultivating a resistance to olds. This should bo taken In a warm oem , and If the bather Is not robust o should Htnml In a tub of hot water nd sponge or spray the body with vatcr sufllelontly cold to cause nn grecable glow or reaction after the Irst shock , but not cold enough to auso bluono.ss of the skin or chllll- oss mid depression following the nth. Rubbing vigorously with a oarso towel will hasten the reaction nd Improve the circulation. When he cold bath cannot be borne , cool ponging of neck and chest will prove enoflelal and protective. Importance of Ventilation. The sleeping room should be well ontllfitod , but the sleeper should be Totec-tod from drafts. The tem- 'C'raturo ' of thn living room should lever rise above 70 degrees F. ; ( H ! to degrees Is the safest point. Dry- loss of the air should bo avoided by upplylng moisture. A pun of water laced on the stove or cloths satu 'ated ' with water and placed near nidi iteM will answer the purpose If here Is no furnace with a water roscr- olr at I ached Avoid dust nud dampness In the muse. Avoid heavy upholstery , curtain langlngs , carpets , etc. , which only ervo to gather dust and germs. Stained or polished floors , rugs and Ight washable curtains are far more loallhful. Toilet of Nose and Throat. Great caution must be exercised la ntorferlng with the natural process es In the nose. Frequent douching uid spraying with antiseptic solutions * - s often very Irritating and Injurious n some old standing cases of catarrh he nasal douche is necessary , but Its ise should be directed by a physician. The cureless UHC of the douche uiuj eod to Infection of the ear. Wheu a leausing spray or douche Is neces sary , the following should be employ ed in preference to strong antiseptic solutions or advertised catarrh cures : To u pint of warm water add one ; easpoonful of a powder composed of equal parts of sodium bicarbonate , so dium blborate aud sodium chloride. This may be used warm In nn ate miser when the uoae Is dry and crus- ; y or clogged with soot aud dust. In blowing the nose , especially after H douche or spray has been used , close mt > nostril and blow with moderate force through the other. The usual meted of partially closing both nostrils and forcibly blowing often causes In fectious matter to bo blown Into the ars. After using a nasal douche ex posure to the open air should be avoid ed for at least half > u hour , as the nose has been deprived of Its protec tive mucus and time IB necessary for : bo mucus to reform. If an oil spray n used following the douche this pre caution Is not necessary. When the nostrils are irritated or inflamed from discharges , aud especial ly If there Is any ulceratlon , the ordi nary otllclal ointment of the yellow oxide of mercury Is an excellent prep aration for use. U may be diluted with an equal part of vaseline. Thin prep aration Is cheaper and safer than ad vertised salves or nostrums. Absorption of poisonous matter from the intestines , due to constipation , U a frequent cause of nasal congestion. Care of the bowels Is extremely Impor tant aa a preventive measure. Treatment of a Cold. The possibilities iu a common cold are such that the wisest course is to call a physician and bo regularly treat ed. Quack remedies are dangerous. Re member that the brain Is lu close re lationship with the nose and its acces sory cavities and that Inflammation and infection of these cavities , if not recognized in time , may lead to abscess. 'Cold cures" often mask the symptom * without curing the disease. Heavy doses of whisky and quinine often do more harm than good. In emergencies when a physician Is not within call the following measures will often check a cold : First. A mustard foot bath as hot as can be inn-no , lasting twenty to thir ty minutes , the body being enveloped In blankets to Induce a profuse per spiration. Hot lemonade , hot tlaxsocd tea or ton to thirty drops of spirits of camphor In n glass of hot water will assist the action of the bath. Second. A brisk cathartic , as castor oil , calomel , etc. Thin ! . The neck and chest should be rubbed with camphorated oil or liquid mustard plaster. Further than this the treatment of a cold Is in the province of a physician. The Tank. Frl ° nd ( to confirmed toper ) I don't see how you can drink so much. It's shocking. Toper It shocks me too.

Deliberate and wilful breach of contract In calling out 10,000 miners In the fifth Ohio sub- district was charged against Thomas Lewis , president of the United Mine Workers of America today by local op erators. "If the men strike on Lewis' order , " said J. J. Roby , vice president of the Pittsburg Vein operators , " It will be direct breach of contract. " DOY SCOUTS TOOK HIKE. With shouldered staffs and march ing in squads , twenty-four members of the Norfolk boy scouts , under the command of Master Scout A. O. Hazen and the various officers of the organi zation , took possession of the state hospital Friday evening. After a par ley with Superintendent Johnson of that institution , the buildings were surrendered to the youthful scouts , who were escorted through the entire institution , after which they marched to the city and disbanded on Fifth street and Norfolk avenue. The youngsters surprised many cit izens who , believing they wore the local militia company at drill , praised them highly for their soldier-like ap pearance as they march up Norfolk avenue. They readily answered the calls of a bugle in the hands of one of their musicians and the , orders from the general to his subordinates wore dispatched with action that would give credit oven to many of Captain Anderson's men. In all the "hike" took up two hours and a half , the youngsters assembling at the postofflce at 5 o'clock and dis banding at S o'clock. Killian Co. Still Grows. A. L. Kllllan and company report still further Improvements. The ad dition to the rear of the Cotton block is being put up especially for this company , whose business has reached such a large capacity that they have also leased the Durland building , which will soon bo constructed on the property adjoining the main Killian store. Besides taking on these two now buildings to make their store one of the largest in the state , the Killian company has conceived n unique idea which will greatly benefit the travelIng - Ing men who display and sell their goods at this store. A room to be known as the sample room Is to be added to the main store. Here the sample trunks of the traveling men are to be housed when brought ID by the expressmen and In this room the trunks will bo. opened and displayed on counters built for them. What the Kllllan company expects to stock the new addition with Is not yet known , but It is known that the addition will be built of pressed brick , ono story In height and equip ped with the most modern fixtures. This addition will give the company seventy-five feet of show windows , en trance and frontage on Fourth street The basement of the new addition Is to bo cemented and used for a receiv ing , packing and storing room ot f heavy stock. An archway built near the office of tbo main building Is to connect the new addition with the store. EUROPEAN NEWS AND VIEWS London , Mnrcli --Although there Ic sulllcloiit excitement to lie found In the condition of affairs political Unlit IIITO In London. two International events uro occupying much space In tlu > Kngllsh newspaper * . Of first Ini- liortiinco , of course. Is the midden innHBliif ; of Amorlciin troops near the Mexican border , the second Iti'in of Intercut IH the trial of the Ciimorrists In Vitorbo , Italy , which opened a few days ago. Generally speaking , the London newspapers take a broad view of the Mexican border affair , acceptIng - Ing the situation as it In and an the responsible otllclals of the American government have prcHented It to Mex ico. It IB considered hero that Amer ica must reckon with a probable violent lent change of government In Mexico , for there IB a strong party behind the revolutionists seeking to establish a Mexican federation of Central Amor- lean republics , which would prejudice the Interests of the United States In Panama. The assembling of ships and troops may , therefore , be a wise meas ure. ure.One One of the noteworthy features of the Camorrlst trial Is the pride ot the people of Vlterbo over life fact that their city has been chosen for the scene of the prosecution of the al leged band of cutthroats and robbers who have terrorized honest people for years. Hundreds of persons are there attending the trial , which , for the present , at least , is rivaling In Interest the Homo art exhibition in connection with the- fiftieth anniversary of the proclamation of that city as the cap ital of United Italy. Vltorbo la in fes tal array , the antiques have boon bur nished , and every plan possible has bcon made to make the most of the affair from a commercial standpoint. Ono of llw most interesting Invalids of the moment In Europe Is the king of Montenegro. He IB the most pa ternal ruler In Europe and judges hla little kingdom on the traditional meth ods of the cadi under the palm tree. Law never bothers him , and when he has made up his mind what an offend er deserves , the offender gets It then and there. Of all the monarchs ho Is the most unconventional. He has re vived the art of farriery , by working in his own blacksmith's shop and made his haughty braves to under stand that what Is good enough for the king is good enough for them. He gives evidence of his Intense patriotIsm - Ism by always wearing the exceeding ly showy Montenegrin costume. London is preparing for the most brilliant summer season in its history. Prom the beginning of May onward London will be the center of European Interest. During the first fortnight in May King George will open the fes tival of empire at the Crystal palace. On May 16 he will unveil the Queen Victoria memorial in the Mall , and the kaiser and kaiserin will bo present at the ceremony. The imperial confer ence will open on May 21 ! . The cor onation will take place June 22. The royal progress through London will be made June 21 ! . On June 29 a third royal procession will go from Bunking- ham palace to the Guildhall and back. Eight days will be devoted to the cor onation festivities. The coronation season promises to be one of brilliant colors. Cloth sell trs in Ix > ndon and Paris are prophesy , ing that bright reds and blues will be very popular with the women of both cities , while old gold Is to be taken I back into favor after years of neglect. | Rose in various shades will be a reign- i Ing favorite. One vivid edition of It is to lw known as Bacchus , while an other distinguished for its delicacy is the exact hue * of the Engljsh cabbage rose , and the girls who are coming out are to make It their own for evening i wear. Chronic dyspepsia , incurred during the discharge of his official duties , is the ground upon which a councillor of the Paris perfecture has applied for I his pension before the age at which it I becomes due. Attendance at state , banquets , ho declares , has played such havoc with his digestive organs that his health will not permit him to re main in olllce any longer. His appli cation was rejected. It is believed In England that there is a deeiier reason IK hind Japan's re cent purchase of 100,000 tons of rice from China that has been given out by that government. It has been stated that the purchase was made necessary by Japan's selling her own tico abroad at a better price , the reason for the buying from China being enforced this year by the necessity of feeding the thonsnnds of sufferers from the devas tating Hoods of last year. This sounds fairly plausible , but there are those who say that Japan is preparing to send her entire licet , as soon as pos sible , to the most unprotected spot on the Pacific coast of the United States.
