CISCINNATTI dentists Bay that ice
water is bad for the teeth and bad for
the stomach that the sudden change of
temperaturo caused by the introduction
of ice water into tho mouth cau.es the
enamel of the teeth to contract and
fracture, and that its effect on the
stomach is to cause dispopsia, con
sumption and to derange the liver and
bowels. This is all very reasonable
and the facts have generally long been
known, but people who can get it wil

ALL A110UT ULOW1NG OUT A
Kindling firos with coal oil is not
the only way in which that daugcrous
fluid causes death and destruction, j A
few days ago, a Miss l'arrat, of West-
port, Kentucky, attempted to blow out
a lamp it exploded and tho young
woman was burned to death, and hor
father, in attempting to assist her, had
his arm so badly burned that it was
thought amputation would be neces
sary. A sure remedy for preventing
death from the kindling of fires with
coal oil; is for persons who are tempted
to so CM it to follow the advico of
Dbaglas Jerrold to young pcoplo
about to marry, "Don't." But since, in
the courso of human events, it bocomcs
neccisary to extinguish lamps after
wtfcrftirey1' a"ro a&W 6sfoownnout.'
Sinoc the process is atteudod with ex
treme danger, tho wonder is that no
inventive genius has exhibited a patent
safety lamp extinguisher." True, it
has been said that to blow down the
chimney is tlia most certain way of

A RADICAL MEASUHE.
The present congress has not been
distinguished for doing anything par
ticularly serviceable to the country,
and since it has not done anything to
make it famous, some radical senators
have set themselves to work to make
it infamous, if they can. Senators
Carpenter and Conkliug introduced
into the eenato on the 12th inst., a bill
"to determine the jurisdiction of tho
circuit courts of tho United States and
,to regulate the remoyal of causes from
state courts and for othor purposes."
The title of tho bill is not suggestive,
uu iwgisi is contained in the eleventh
section, which reads as follows:
The process to commence in any
Circuit Court of the United States or
in any court of any Territory of tho
United States or the .District of Col.
unibia, any civil suit not aflecting the
title to real tstato not withiu the state
toy??,! or distrlot where the said'
imt is brought against any corporation
or othr person residing ft, tho United
States and doing business in tho Male,
territory or district whoro said nuit
U brought, and having in paid state,
territory or district whero said suit is
broaght an agent or agents in rospeot
of the matter out of which the caso
aruvw, may be made by delivery to
uch agent, or to either of such agents,
wbara there U more than one, a copy
of such process; and such service shall
nave the aame force and effect as if
mad upon the principal of suoh agent
in tha state, territory or Distrlni
Columbia where suit is brought. Pro.
twiuj nowevor, mai mis section bhall
not apply to any suit on a cause of ac.
Uon occurring before July 1, 1&7..
Tha effect of this aoction on all bus-
inoss men who may send out ngents or
salesman is seen at a glance, but it is
beliovcd thatjgit was prepared with u
purpose to" curtnifthe privilrgcs of tho
press, and that tho section is intended
to net as n clock upon newspaper
oorrcspondonts who ia'
disposed to comment upon tho nets of
publio men. J-'enator Carpenter in his
private experience knows what a "free
press" is, nnd has taken ndvanlngc of
his power, ns a senate of the United
dtatcs, to endeavor to make it irapojsi-
bio tor any newspaper correspondent
to exposo either tho official or personal
ins ol public men, without
Vmr of heavy puni'hinont. The
meaMiro is another o'Vicc ot tho
loiideuuy of radicalism lo the cetitrali
nation of the government at Washing-
ton; it was conceived in iuiquity,born in
corruption and brought to the
light of day by men whose
vaulitcd devotion to tho in
terests of the country is ns sounding
brass and tinkling cymbal. Though
opposed by tho democratic senators and
low republicans, it passed tho seuate.
It is scarcely possible that it will
