WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 10.
Scokpions of Socthesx Mexico.?Mexicans
are complaining about tho increase of scorpions of
late in the southern part of Mexico. They arc so
numorous that nearly every houso is overrun with
them. They arc within the cracks of tho walls,
and dart everywhere with inconceivablo rapidity;
their tails, which hold tho sting, are held ready
to fly np, with dangerous effect, upon the slightest
provocation. The average scorpion is mahogany
bued, and about two inches long ; but they have
been fonnd five inches in length. The small,
yellowish variety are considered more dangerous,
and their bite is most apprehended at midday. In
Durango they are black and so alarmingly nu?
morous?having boen allowed to breed for centu?
ries in the deserted mines?that the government
offers a reward per head (or rather per tail) to
whoever will kill them. Their sting is seldom
fatal, but it is more or less severe, according to
the state of the system. Victims have boon known
to remain for days in convulsions, foaming at the
mouth, with stomach swelled as in dropsy, while
others do not suffer much more than from a bee
Food fob the Teeth.?A ?Brooklyn dentist
''Oatmeal is one of tho best foods for supplying
tho toeth with nourishment. It makes the dent?
ine, cementnm and enamel strong, flintliko and
able to resist all forms of decay. If you have
children, never allow any whito bread upon your
table. Graham bread is made of whole wiieat
ground, not bolted, so that tho brau, which con?
tains tho minute quantities of linio, is present.
To make a good, wholesome, nourishing bread,
take two bowls of wheatmeal and ouo bowl of
white or bolted Hour, and make by the usual pro?
cess. Nothing is superior to Boston brown bread
for bone and tooth building. This is made out of
ryumcal and corn meal. Bakod beans, too, havo a
considerable supply of these limo salts, and should
bo on your table, either hot or cold, at least three
times "a week. In brushing the teeth always
brush up and down, from the gum instead of
across. Brush away from the gum and on tho
grinding surfaces of your teeth."
"Say, why is everything
Either at sixes or at Sovens v'
Probably, my dear nervous Bister, because
you are Buffering from some of the diseases
peculiar to your sex. You have a "drag
ging-down" leeling, the back-ache, you are
debilitated, you have pain* of various kind?.
