INHALE THROUGH THE NOSTRILS,
AND'NOT THE MOUTH.

Such Development Im Ipompoible.
That nature intended man for all
ellinates is unquestloned, but if man
live other thma nature Intended he
should he must be content with dire
consequmnces so far as health is con
cerned. And why is it that certain in
dividuals enjoy better health in cer
tain climates than in others?
To my mind, the reason in a major
ity of cases is that they are mouth
breathers and bear better the mild
than the severe climate.
Who are aillicted with chronic nos!
throat and chest affections? Thu mouth
breather always, and we will nev
er stamp out such conditions as pul
ionary tuberculosis, together with
numerous other affections of the re
9piratory tract, Iutil we. the humaln
family, have learned to take every in
spiration through the nose.
I have taken the liberty to divide
mouth breathers into two classes, con
firmed and muodierate. Tihte first breathes

How the Great Compoier came to
Live la Baireuth.
How Wagner came to make Bat
reuth his home is a rather interesting
story. Ile had long dreamed of pos
sessing a fieater where his composi
fions could be interpreted to suit his
ideas. but had little hol)b that the
dreau would ever be fulfilled. When.
however, in his period of greatest de
pression and loneliness he "orimed the
friendship of the late king of Bavaria
It seeied -iuddeily as if all things
w'ere p)osslble to him. In 1867 hIs royal
protector instructed the celebrated
architect. Gottfried Senper, to prepa re
the plans for the theater, which was
to be built at Munich. Through po
litical and)(] professional dissensions and
jealotsies tihle town couneil of Munielh
refused perinission for the erection of
the IIeaer tliere. li 1871 Wagner
visited 11.111-etit rI and, after taking
couisel 'with the celebrated banker1,,
Messrs. Fenstel and Gross, decided
upon a site in that city. The imniiei
Pality of' the town, correctly e.timating
the iinncial advantages lvbich wouhd
accrue, presented Wagner withIi two
plots of land, one for tile tleater ain
the other for his own house. The 1.
ter was itIiimediately built, and In 1872
Wagier removed his family from
Tru'ibehln, nwar I'tucerine, to the new
holl e. W.i11afried. 'Ile cor'iner sac of
the theitr was I.-I( on his sixtie.h
birtliday. :.1ay 22. 1872. It was esti
lilated that the theater would cost
300,000 thalers (ahout $250,000), ani
this siin was very largely raised I::
Wagner soclettes throughouI tlie worbl.
It was completed In 1876 and dedieati
wIth the presentation of "J)per Iing des
Nibeluingei" on Aig. 13 of tlf.,t. yenr.
Since then it has been the Mecca of
the lovers of Wagnerian music fro,m
all parts of the world.
