TEA1NIKG A BULL DOG.
Why a Street Car Is Better Than a Tread
mill to Reduce Weight.
Detroit Free Press.
A "hard-looking citizen with a ferocious
white bull dog attached to a chain attracted
a eood deal of attention on the tront end of
a Fort street car yesterday afternoon. The
"flog's legs and body were covered with an
inch of mud, and as he trotted alongside the
moving car, tugging at his chain, took all
his owner's strength to hold him.
""Where are you going with the dog?" was
asked.
'.Nowhere," replied the man,"only work
ing him."
"Got a match for him?"
"Yes; comes off next Saturday night in
Dclray. He's in pretty good shape, and I
guess ne's a winner. A street car is the best
place in the world to work a do? on. If
yon run him under a buggy his throat gets
full ot mud from the horse's feet. A tread
mill is no nse because it Worries the heart
out of him. But a street car takes the
cake, and especially this line, becanse yon
can ride 12 miles for a nickel. A man can
reduce a dog at the rate of three pounds a
day by running him alongside a street car."
EAST TO REMEMBER.
Take One GInss of Beer After Eating; a
Ilcnvy Dinner.
Albany Journal.
An Albanian who has lived abroad, and
who knows what good living is, speaking to
some friends recently of his experience as a
heavy diner, said he learned a trick in Ger
many which he had never forgotten and
which every one who dines out should re
member, and that is to take a glass of lager
beer about half an hour after a heavy meal,
and especially if wines of various qualities
have been served.
Nothing, he said, would relieve the nat
nral oppression that a heavy eater feels so
quickly as a glass of lager beer taken as
directed. He said this was a rule with the
best livers in Germany, and also in France.
The lnngs are strained and racked by a
persistent cough, the general strength
wasted, and an incurable, complaint often
established thereby. Dr. Jayne s Expecto
rant is an effective" remedy for coughs and
