GROWTH OF THE HUMAN HAIR
lnterttfn Fueti Oathertrf by Selwi
Urt Aver 8tramf Kn
A single hair, which can otippsft
a weight, of two ounce, is so" elastic
that it Riay bo stretched la one-third
of its entire length and then regain
is former size and condition. Dr.
PiiicHs has measured the growth 'el
hair by cutting off circles about one
inch in diameter from the heads of
healthy men, and o comparing the
growth of the patches with that of
the rest of llw hair. lie found that
the growth rate, generally became
slower after cutting; that in mine
caws the hair on patches grew at the
sflmo rate m the rest, hut that it
never grew any faster.
The ordinary length of the hair
on the head ranges between 22 inch
es and about 15 inches, flic latter be
ing considered unusually long. It
has been calculated tlmt the hair of
the beard grows at the rate of one
line and a lialf a week; this will
give a length of OlA inches in the
course of a year. For a man 80 years
of age, who has been a clean shaver
from early maturity, no less than
27 fect of beard must have fallen be
fore the edge of tho razor.
NO MILK IN TYPHOID.
A. Scibert of New York haa used
a milkfrco fluid diet in typhoid fever
in Gl cases at St. Francis' hospital,
with only one death. Most of the
patients were convalescent muck
sooner than is usually the case in ty
phoid fever. Irrigations of the bow
els were combined with the diet. The
patient is given an initial dose ef
calomel, and is then fed on water
for 24 hours. From that tine he
takes strained rice, oatmeal o'r bar
ley soup with extract of meat and
egg yolk. Then other broths, and
zwieback are added. Hydrochloric
acid is given before feeding. All the
general symptoms are improved, the
temperature is lowered, intestinal
and nervous symptoms are improved
and complications disappear. The
attack is shortened, the mortality di
minished and complications lessened.
TEHERAN'S WATER SUPPLY.

It Checks Prosperity
It has been said, that ''a fool and
his money soon paits;"' this being,
true, Hickman has a few men, who
judging from this standard, ' are ex
ceptionally wise. They worship the
Almighty Dollar, and turning them
loose is worse than the proverbial
"pulling of eye teeth." My friend,
did you ever stop to think what the
result would be if we were all misers
and tight-wads? Hoarded money is
dead. It pays no wages. It buys
no groceries. , It shelters no family.
For industry to ,be prosperous, for
business to be profitable for employ
ment to be constant money must be
kept in circulation. The merchant
must receive money for his goods,
and in turn pay tbe money to his
employees and to the factories
which produce what he sells, and
which in turn pay out to their work
ingmen, from whom it goes to the
butcher, the grocer and store keep
er, keeping in continued circulation.
Money in itself is of no value to
anybody except the miser. It is not
edible until it is exchanged fcr food.
It does not keep off the rain until it
is paid out for rent. It docs not
protect from cold until it is exchang
ed (or clothing. Idle money is the
most useless commodity . in the
What money a man does not need
to pay his bills he should deposit in
a bank, where it will be put to work,
In a bank's vault, money is a basis
for credit, and credit is necesssary
for profitable business. The worst
place for a man to keep his money
is in his pocket. It burns holes
there. It is a' constant temptation
to excessive expenditure. The mon
ey which a man does not need tor
his necessary purposes of food and
clothing and shelter should be put to
work. Do not hoard it. Its posses
sion is the cause of ceaseless worry.
The hoarding of money is the surest
way to check prosperity and to
throw out of work the very peoples
who do the hoarding.
