himself in check. He Indulged "iynn

Johnson constantly shoved his stomach

a great cheer when he rushed the black

turning his head to the spectators and
hardly noticing his white antagonist

four lefts to the face in quick succession,
varying it with a left uppercut to the Jaw.

TREATMENT FOR IVY POISON
Saggestlon for City Ramblers la
Country Byways and
Poisoning the skin by poison ivy (Rhus
toxicodendron)) is frequent in the sum
mer and the early autumn. Some fortu
nate persons are not susceptible, but
most are poisoned if they come into
direct contact with the plant.
This disorder causes discomfort always,
and sometimes suffering. It shows Itself
within a few hours, with redness, heat
and irritation of tbe skin, swelling and
the formation of small vesicles. These
vesicles may occur7 in great numbers.
Often many of them coalesce to form
blisters', and they also break and exude a
sticky yellowish serum. It is this fluid
that by its escape spreads the disesse
to the adjacent skin or to the face and
other parts of the body.
Tbe swelling may be so considerable
as completely to close the eyes. As a
rule the acute symptoms continue sev
eral days, at the end of which time the
vesicles either discharge or crust over
and the swelling and redness slowly dis
appear. In this stage the itching may
be Intense and is likely to provoke re
peated scratching, which may in turn
bring about eczema. '
The best way to treat ivy poisoning
is simple. The inflamed skin should be
copiously washed with lukewarm Water
and a soap that does not irritate. The
parts affected should then be bathed
with a watery solution of permanganate
of potash as hot as can be borne. If
the skin is broken a per cent solution
should be used; if the skin is not broken,
however, the strength of the solution
may be increased up to 2 or 3 per cent.
Treatment should begin the instant symp
toms are observed.
In mild cases one treatment is enough.
Oceasionly the poison is more deeply
seated and the permanganate must be
applied for some time. In these cases
and in the extremely rare instances of
systemic infection due to the entrance
of the poison into the circulation a physi
cian must be called. ,
The patient must avoid scratching, of
The Coffee Can
A couple of years ago one could get a pound of fairly decent coffee for from 15 to
25 cents. Now that same coffee costs from 25 cents to 45 cents per pound and a fur-,
ther raise of ten cents is in prospect.
77hs Is Where YOU Come In
Tbe average coffee drinker knows that coffee is a really harmful drink to most folks.
Headache, biliousness, indigestion and other signs of an up-set liver, as well as heart
irritation, nervousness and sleeplessness are too evident to most coffee drinkers to
permit of their ignorance of that fact.

course. Bandages are undesirable be
cause they tend to spread the poison
over the surrounding skin. If any pro
tector is needed let it Be a loosely ap
plied dressing of absorbent cotton and
gause, changed frequently and kept moist
at all times with warm water contain
ing a little bicarbonate of soda.
Permanganate of potash discolors
everything with which it comes in eon
tact and stains the skin a deep brown
color, hut that is a small price to pay
for the relief it affords. The stain will
wear off in a few days or it can be re
moved by vigorous applications of soap
and water. In the healing stages of the
disorder soothing ointments may be used.

A Senoiti ve Subj ect
Four years ago Brazil found that In spite of the fact that It was producing over 90
per cent of the coffee coneumed In the United States, its rich planters were not
squeezing. as much money out of Americans as they could and the Brazilian govern
ment was not receiving enough revenue from a product that was one of that coun
try's chlefest products.
And so Brazil determined to levy tribute upon rich and prosperous America, even
as the British taxed our tea In olden days; only this modern type of piracy was engi
neered and executed In a kid glove way. ' ,
Certain foreign capitalists (German, English and others were called Into consulta
tion. They devisod a scheme called "valorization." They started by buncoing our
American Congress Into removing the Import tax on coffee, and, that done, Brazil im
mediately transferred the income to its own treasury by imposing an export tax. This
was followed by perfecting a system whereby the Brazilian, government could control
the output and the price of coffee.
The net result has been that Brazil for the last three years, has sold just what
grades of coffee It wanted to sell, at any price It choose to fix; and in consequence the
Brazilian government has shared, with a syndicate of foreign money kings a profit of
Hundreds of Millions of Dollars, every cent of which has come, from the pockets of
the America People.
