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

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

< 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.

DENOUNCE COAL STRIKE ACT.
Cleveland , March 18. 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.

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

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.
