SAVED HIS FINIER.
The Faithful Brahman Felt, How
ever, That He Had Lost Caste.
One day a Brahman accidentally
touched some unclean object with his
little finger. The Brahman thought that
now, his little fnger having become un
clean, any substance which it would
touch would be also rendered unclean
and thus make him an unclean man.
Seeing no other way to get out of the
scrape he resolved to get the offending
member amputated. Forthwith he went
to a carpenter and explained to him
that unless the finger was cut off he
(the Brahman) was unable to take food.
The carpenter tried to dissuade the
devotee and urged that an application
of some drops of water from the sa
cred river Gu:ga would make the fin
ger once zmore holy, but the Brahman
persisted. He said that the finger was
of no use to him any longer and that
he would not rest until it was severed.
As a final recourse the carpenter re
solved to play his awkward customer a
trick. He told the Brahman to put his
finger on an anvil and to look to the
sky while the wound was inflicted.
The Brahman did so. The carpenter
took up a hatchet and gave the finger
a smart blow with the back of it This
elicited a cry of pain from the pa
tient, who at once put the finger in his
mouth to allay the agony. The carpen
ter, laughing, explained to the Brah
man that the blbw had missed and the
tittle finger was still entire; and, worst
of all, the Brahman had defiled himself
by putting the finger into his mouth.
The obliging operator, moreover, offer
ed to perform the operation once more,
but the Brahman had had enough pain
for the nonce and declined with thanks.
Some Mustache History.
What is the history of the mustache?
In Greece and Rome no mustaches
were worn without beards, but in the
conquering days of the Roman empire
several half civilized races who had
come partially under the influence of
the Romans and who wished to be rid
of the name of barbari, or wearers of
beards, attempted to shave in imitation
of their conquerors; but, as they had
very imperfect implements for the pur
pose and as.the upper lip is notoriously
the hardest part of the face to shave In
the case of any one poorly skilled in the
art, they were unable to make a clean
job of It and left a quantity of hair on
the upper lip.
This mark was characteristic of sev
eral nations on the confines- of Roman
civilization, of the Gauls In particular,
of the Daciens and some others. The
Latin language has no word for mus
tache. Thi8 barbarous accident was
unworthy of the honor of a Roman
The Dinner Hour.
It Is a curious fact that with almost
every generation the dinner hour has
undergone a change, the principal meal
of the day being eaten at different pe
riods, from 10 o'clock In the morning
until 10 o'clock at night The author
of "The Pleasures of the Table" points
out that In England 400 or 500 years
ago people took four meals--breakfast
at 7, dinner at 10, supper at 4 and liv
ery at8. In France in the thirteenth
entury 9 in the morning was the din
ner hour; Henry VII. dined at 11. 'In
Cromwell's time 1 o'clock had come to
be the fashionable hour and In AdgI
son's day 2 o'clock, which gradually
was' transformed Into 4. Pope found
fault with Lady Suffolk for dining' so
late as 4. Four and 5 continued to be the
popar dining hours among the aris
tocracy until the second decade of the
nineteenth century, when dinner was
further postponed, from which period
It has steadily continued to encroach
upon the evening.
~ A Fling at Tennyson.
In the "New Letters and Memorials
of Jane Welsh Carlyle" is a letter to
her husband in which occurs the fol
lowing amusing little fling at Tenny
"Did you know that Alfred Tennyson
Is to have a pension of ?200 a year, aft
er all? Peel has stated his intention of
recommending- him to her gracious maj

riet told me he wanted to marry; 'must
have a woman to live beside; would
prefer a lady, but cannot afford one,
and so must marry a maidservant'
Mrs. Henry Taylor said she was about
to write to him in behalf of their house
maid, who was quite a superior charac

Small, chalk white teeth are a sign of
a weak constitution. Strong, normal
teeth are large and yellowish white.
Sometines an enthusiastic novelist In
dpicting the charms of his heroine
will give her two rows of pearls be
tween her ruby lips. The truth of the
matter is nothing could be more ghast
ly or unnatural or unbecoming than
teeth made of pearls. It is only "store
teeth" that possess a high polish.

Robbed The Grave.
A startling incipent is narrated by
John Oliver of Philadelphia, as follows:
"I was in an awful condition. My skin
was almost yellow, eyes sunken, tongue
coated, pain continual in back and
sides, no appetite, growing weaker day
by day. Three physicians had given
ae up. Then I was advised to use
Electrtc Bitters; to my great joy, the
first bottle made a decided improve
ment. I continued their use for three
weeks, and am now a well man. I know
they robbed the grave of another vic
tim." No one should fail to try them.

Catarrh of the
For many years it has been supposed that.
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
and dyspepsia, but the truth is exactly the4
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re
peated attacks of indigestion inflames the
mucous membranes lining the stomach and
exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caus
ing the glands to secrete mucin Instead of
the juices of natural digestion. This is
called Catarrh of the Stomach.
