Ths Wor.cl "3lizzara."
"Blizzard" is an American word, says
the Chicago News. The date and cir
cumstances of its origin are obscure.
Though it was first commonly used by
the American newspapers as a good
word for a snow squall in the 'winter
of 1880-81, it is said to have been
known to the west in that sense nearly
twenty years earlier. Prom an Eng
lish writer of 1884 this sentence is
quoted: "A gentleman at dinner asked
me for a toast, and, supposing he
meant to hare some fun at my ex
pense, I concluded to go ahead and
give him and his likes a blizzard." Here
blizzard might well mean a metaphor
ical volley, which would square with
the evidence of a correspondent of an
American paper who recalled that in
the forties a blizzard was a particular
kind of volleya rattling one, fired in
quick succession, as opposed to a si
multaneous "broadside"affected by
sportsmen on the Atlantic coast who
shot at flights of migratory birds from
A Savage's Sense of Duty.
Although the Australian aborigine
has his vendetta, it is not always re
venge that he seeks. Darwin tells of
a native servant of a west Australian
magistrate who went one day to his
master, saying that one of his wives
had died. He must go away therefore
to a.distant tribe and spear a woman
to satisfy his sense of duty to the
dead woman. "If you do, I'll send you
to prison for life," said his master.
For a year the man hung about, look
ing wretched and ill and complaining
that he could neither eat nor sleep, as
the spirit of his wife haunted him
because he had not taken another life
for hers. At last he disappeared. A
year later he returned in high condi
tion. There was no legal evidence
against him, but it was known that
he had gone to a distant tribe, had
speared a woman to death and so, as
he thought, appeased the spirit of his

Many are the deeds of heroism re

his rise "From Midshipman to Field
Marshal," but none more thrilling than
an incident of the fighting in the Cri
"Look out! 'Whistling Dick!'" was
the warning that was shouted one day,
and at the call, which referred to a
certain huge mortar which had been
shelling them, every one in hearing
rushed for shelter. All succeeded in
gaining the trenches except young
Blewitt of II. M. S. Queen. Him the
spent shell caught under the knees and
pinned to the ground.
"Stephen, Stephen," he called to Ste
phen Welch, "do not leave me to die!"
The fuse of the thirteen inch shell
was hissing, but Welch did not hesi

"Come on, lads! Let's try!" he shout

tugging with all his strength at the big
mass of iron. At that instant it burst,

A Fatal Advertisement.
Vestris, the great dancing master,
died at eighty-three, and it was said
he would have lived till a hundred but
for a sudden and mortal blow in the
shape of an advertisement. One day
he asked for a newspaper, probably
for the first time in his life. Scarcely
had he opened the sheet when his eyes
lighted upon,the following: "Wanted,
a professor of dancing at Calcutta.
Must be a skillful chiropodist at the
same time." He took to his bed and
never left it again alive.
Long Legged Birds.
Long legged birds have tails so short
that they seem to be out of proportion
to their bodies. But there is a reason
for the short tails. Birds, while flying,
and often while walking, use their
tails for steerage purposes. When
birds with long legs take to flight! they
throw their legs behind in a manner
that causes them to serve the same
purpose as a tail.
Spoke For Himself.
It is told of Charles Lamb that one
afternoon, returning from a dinner
party, having taken a seat in a crowd
ed omnibus, a stout gentleman subse
quently looked in and politely asked?
"All full inside?" "I don't know how
it may be with the other passengers,"
answered Lamb, "but that last piece of
oyster pie did the business for me."

"That man is a 'night v.-jriar,? prob

Cowbirc's Unnatural Parents.
The cowbird is the only bird that we
have in this country which is unnatu
ral in its parental duties. It never
builds a nest for itself, but lays its
eggs in other birds' nests, thus forcing
the rightful owners to assume parental
duties. It it sagacious enough to
choose the nests of birds smaller than
itself, so that its young, when it is
hatched, being inevitably the largest
of the brood, must necessarily receive
the lion's share of the attention of its
foster parents. The birds thus afflict
ed resort to various means to rid
themselves of this unwelcome addition
to their litter. The most ingenious

Catarrh is usually worse in Winter, because of the cold, damp and
suddenly changing climate. Colds are contracted, and neglected and as the
secretions from the different inflamed membranes are absorbed into tke blood
the unpleasant symptoms of the disease commence. The nostrils are
stopped up and a constant dropping of mucous back into the threat keeps
up a continual hawking and spitting. The patient has dull headaokes,
ringing noises in the ears, and often slight fever and a depressed, half-sick
feeling accompanies the disease. The blood becomes so fully charge* with
catarrhal matter that stomach troubles are brought on, the kidiegre and
bladder are affected, and if the blood is not purified of the poison tke lungs
become diseased because of the constant passage of impure Wood through
them. Catarrh cannot be cured with washes, sprays, inhalations and snch
treatment these cannot reach the poison-laden blood where tke real cause is
located, and can only give temporary relief
and comfort. A disease which affects the
entire blood supply as does Catarrh, Must
