TELLS RIGHT WAY TO COUGH
Physician's Directions Would Certain
ly Prevent One Becoming a Nui
? sance to Companions.
The following directions as to how
to cough are given hy a physician in
the Journal of the Outdoor Life: 1
"Fold your handkerchief so that it; is
about five inches square. Place it flat
in the right hand, if you are right
handod, and with this hand hold it
tightly over the mouth. Press the
hand on the mouth, as to hold it
loosed over the mouth will not ac
complish the purpose. Now instead of
couching and trying to muffle the
sound in your throat or mouth, muffle
it with your handkerchief. Practice
it until a person ten feet away can
not hear you.
"The sound made in coughing is due
partly to air passing over the vocal
cords, partly to air going through the
bronchial tubes and trachea, and part
ly to the resonance produced in the
chambers above the trachea. This
sound can be almost wholly avoided
and the irritation to the lungs and air
passages prevented by keeping the air
passages open and letting your hand
kerchief do the muffling. Now instead
of expelling 120 cubic inches of air at
each expiration, you will expel a
smaller amount, with more comfort to
yourself and to those around you and
with much less harm to your lungs."

Some Method in His instructions ac

The famous writer for the Belt Line
series of yellow, journals and author
of magazine stories and popular lec
tures, whose name was a household
word, sat him down in response to a
passionate demand from 4,000,000
readers and wrote the following:
MY RULES FOR LONG LIFE.
I am seventy-five years of age and
have married and successfully gotten
rid of four wives, and never have had
a. day's illness. Anyone can do as I
haye done by observing the following

Then, having sent a bill for advertis

trust, the linen underwear trust, the
horsehair mitt trust, the breathing
tube trust and the Don't Worry Pub

a much-needed auto ride.-Life.
Now Practice "Safety First"
A delegation of indignant women
once waited upon the head of a trolley
"You must lower the steps of your
cars at least three inches," said the
spokeswoman firmly. "They are much
too high. It ls almost impossible for

"Certainly," said the head of the
trolley company, and he gave orders:
that the steps should be lowered.
When the work was completed-the
company operated several thousand
cars-the president informed the wom
en that he had complied with their j
wishes and hoped that the revised
steps would prove satisfactory. j *

With regard to George Sand, A. B.
Walkley, the English critic, writes:
"The mixture of passion and printer's

one of the most curious blends ever

"But it was a blend that gave the
lady an unfair advantage over poster

As Prince Karol, George Sand took
