Is Not a Skin Disease.
Most people have an idea that rheumatism is contracted like a cold, that the
damp, chilly air penetrates the muscles and joints and causes the terrible aches
and pains, or that it is something like a skin disease to be rubbed away with lini
ment or drawn out with plasters; but Rhuematism originates in the blood and is
caused by Urea, or Uric Acid, an irritating, corroding poison that settles in mus
cles, joints and nerves, producing inflammation and soreness and the sharp, cutting
pains peculiar to this distressing diseas-e. Bowling Green, Kr.

on the grave lay a little bunch of
fresh flowers. Every day for twc
months past she had brought lower,
to the grave and had sat for an houl
on the bench underneath the willow
tree which shaded it.
As she sat thus, absorbed in her ten
der memories, she never consciously
raised her eyes to note who passed by.
But one day she saw, quite, as it were,
by accident, a young man standing a
little distance from her, gazing at a
grave she did not remember to have
noticed before. He also was dressed
in mourning, and his face was pale and
sad. Her heart was suddenly very
tender toward him, for she knew hini
e for a brother.

naturally and without apology.

They had been married two years only
when she died. She had taken a chill

The warmth of the sun was very

turning her great brown cheek from the
relaxed embrace of winter to meet the
vivifying kisses of the sun. Far away
a turtledove was calling to her mate.
From the willow branches two little
birds, quarreling noilsy. fell to the
grass at their feet, then flew away to
a neighboring tree to kiss and make
up again. The young woman on the
bench raised her eyes to the eyes of
the young man beside her. With a
vague consciousness of alarm she
moved away a little, and a slight shiver
passed over her.

Wax Ne!. i !.i;g.i E;steem In Old
England-T: Phyisician of Fishes,
Fishing literature prior to the days
and wr!tingzs of Izaak Walton opens
up points of interest which are unique.
Not the least imeresting are the con
stant refervnees of the early writers to
the medicinal virtues of fish. Of course
many of tie salt and fresh water fish
es mentioned by the old writers are
not recognized in the waters 2f today,
but the fresh water perch, crp, tench
and cel are Yet recognized, and it is in
connection with these fish that some
of the quaiutest ideas as to their me
:icinal virtues have prevailed.
The Germans have a comparative
proverb which says, "More wholesome
than a perch of the Rhine," and it is
certain that from the earliest times
this familiar fish has been esteemed as
one of the best gastronomic produc
tions of fresh water. It has also been
ascribed medicinal virtues. Gesner says
that physicians value the perch so
much that they recomnend it to be
freely eaten by wounded men, women
In childbed and those suffering from
dangerous fevers. Aldrovandus praises
It and mentions that the two otooliths
("round bones") found in the head of
the perch are marvelously good for
stone in the bladder.
That the carp was esteemed In olden
times in England Is certain. Dame
Berners, writing in her quaint "Trea
ysee of Eysshynge Wyth an Angle,"
published in 1400, says, "The carpe be
E deyntous fish, but there ben few in
Englonge." Being "deyntous"-i. e.,
dainty"-it must have been a good fish
t that time to eat. It has certainly
cst its character since then.
In the-art of healing the carp plays a
respectable part. One old writer speaks
Df the fat of the carp as being of mi
raculous power for the alleviation of
"hot rheumatism." The manner of its
aplication was by frequent rubbing
mi the painful part, and the effect was
said to be eminently mollifying and
glutary. The triangular bones in the
troat of the carp on being ground to
:-owder and applied to a wound or
b:eeding nose were said to act as styp
tic. The gall was also said to have
bn used for sore eyes, and "above
the eyes," says an old -Esculapius,

by noble females against the lunatical

in the preservation of health," and,
adds the qualut old writer, "this fish
s of great wholesomeness and great
value, and its tongue is very pleasant
to carping ladies."
A kind of first cousin of the carp is
hat is known as the barbel. Such
tncients as Juvenal, Albertus and oth
rs of that Ilk evidence that it was
Inown and esteemed by the Roman
ourmnet. Plutarch mentions a curious
act in its natural history. Dr. Bad
arn In his "Prose Haleutics" trans
bats this passage as follows: "The roe
f the barbel is very poisonous. Auto
lo Gazius took two boluses and thus
lesribes his sensations: 'At first I felt
o inconvenience, but some hours hay
g elapsed I began to be disagreeably
ffected, and as my stomach swelled
and could not be brought down by
anise and carminatives I was soon in a
;tate of great depression and distress.'"
t appears that his countenance was
3allid, like a man In a swoon. Deadly
~oldness ensued, and violent cholera
lnd vomiting came on. The barbel

;uch poisonous qualities. Its flesh has

All the same, good Juiyana Berners
hared the bad opinion of the earlier
~vriters. She says: "The barbyll is a
wete fish, but it is quashiy mete
d perylous for mannys bodye.- For
~omynly he ynyth an introduction to
e febris (fever), and if ye be eten
ae he may cause of mannys dethe

The touch which' has been introduced
:nto some parts of this country is an
live greenish carp which has been for
ong tIme termed in England the "phy
iclan of fishes." According to a score
r more of authorities, ancient and
iodern, the thick slime with which It
s covered exerts healing effect on all
rvouds or diseases in which it can

hence this belief originated Is not
nown. but one instance of exact ob
;ervation is wvell worthy of credence.
SIr. Wright in his book on "Fishes and
'shig" tells how a minnow acciden
:ally hooked in the water of an aqua
'um In which it was swimming, on
raking loose, immediately descended
hrec parts of the way down the Wa
:er and swiftly approached its nose to
he side of the teach which was its

.ce) were both of the opinion that it
s really no fable as to the tench being
e Esculapius of fishes, for here was
n exanple before our eyes of a fish

One piscatorial truth is known to all
ho fish for pike or pickerel. The pike
'esoxluius) will ravenously seize as
s prey the fry of almost every fish,

anger. It is believed that much can
be done to prevent contagion by teach
ing habits of cleanlimess. But if such
instruction is to be effectual it must
be continuous. The teacher in the pub

lations of these rules as habitually as
riolations of the more formal school
rules are corrected.

OUR FIRST HUNT CLUB.
it Was Organized In Pennsylvania
Away Back In 1706.
The year 176G is far back, but- It Is
interesting to think that the mutter
ings of the coming war storm were not
yet so engrossing even then but that
the sportsmen of Pennsylvania could
turn their attention to a more system
atic organization of their fox hunting
forces and then establisbid the first
hunt club In the country. the Glouces
ter Hounds. Not that this was the be
ginning of the sport in Pennsylvania,
that eminently horse loving country,
for fox hunting bad held a high place
in the pastimes of the people many a
year before. It was rather the evi
dence that the sport had become so im
portant that It needed sysgematzlng,
so that districts might ba"boroughly
hunted In turn and contentions, rivalry
and clashing dates be avoided.
All the early fox hunting clubs had
their origin In the pre-existing owner
ship of a greater or less number of
hounds by private owners. Every con
siderable landowner in the south kept
them. and good dogs they were, not
always orthodox, according to the
standard of the Belvoir and the Quorn
of today. but nevertheless hounds de
rived from the best English and Eu
ropean stock and continued by Judi
cious selection of those who showed
the instincts by conformation suitable
to the country in which they were
called upon to work. Washington may
be quoted as one of the southerners
who kept bounds and hunted them too.
Lafayette. moreover, sent him from
France a splendid pack of French fox-:
hounds, with qualities which still fur
ther helped to complete the most per
fect animal for American fox hunting,
the American hound.
From the formation of the Glouces
ter Fox Hound club In 1760 until to-.
day clubs have played the most Im
portant phrt in preserving the sport
and regulating its practice. Not all
clubs of equal importance, it is true,
but all of the same spirit.-Ulustrated
NEW YORK TIME.
It Is the Standard Used In All Our
Weather Bureau Stations.
When we read a report from any of
the 100 regular weather bureau sta
tions throughout our land bringing the
information that a rainstorm, a tor
nado or some other meteorological phe
nomenon began at a certain hour we
need not suppose that the hour men
tioned refers to the time at the place
where the observation was made. The
hour given is the exact New York time,
for every clock at the regular weather
bureau stations all over the land is set
to the seventy-fifth meridian, or east
ern standard time, which Is exactly
five hours behind Greenwich time.
Only this standard of time Is used.
in the text of the Monthly Weather I
Review, and all weather bureau ob
servers are required to record observa
tions by it. The reason for this is that
the best scientific deductions from the
weather reports must be based upon
the conditions of the atmosphere exist
ing simultaneously in different parts 1
f the country.
It would be very ludicrous if all the
undreds of reports sent daily had to
e changed at the central office in
Washington from local to eastern time,
nd so all the regular observers are re
uired to use the New York, or eastern
time, In making their reports.
There are many volunteer observers
and newspaper correspondents who in
reporting weather phenomena use oth
er standards of time. If the weather
bureau has occasion to use their re
ports the time Is often corrected to
gree with the eastern standard or the
ocal standard is mentioned.--Detroit

Women Who Dress Like Men.
Tourists in the Austrian Tyrol and the
remoter regions of the Swiss Alp's of
ten come across strange peculiarities of
dress, especially among the females ind
those out of the way places. In the
ittle village of Champery, which nes
ties almost under the frowning Dent
dn Midi, the women dress like men and
may often be seen In the fields. Nat
urally they are objects of much inter
est to tourists, but the women do not
seem to be at all uncomfortably con
scious of the peculiarity of their garb. C
The peasants of Champery are a sim1

novel dress more accommodating to the
hard work they have to do.
