Sleep, Fainting, Apoplexy.
When a man h nslep, liis
pulse licat9 and hi lungs play,
but lie is witliont rsen.se. uiul
you can wake him up.
If a peiHOti faints, lie too if
without sense, but lie lias no
pulse and does not breathe.
Apoplexy is between the
the. two; rlie heart beats, the
lungs play as in sleep, and there
is no sense as in fainting, but
yon cannot shake the man back
to life.
In sleep the face is natural:
in a tainting fit, it has tho pal
lor of death; in npoplexy.it i
swollen, turgi(l,and fairly livid
If a man is asleep let him
alone; nature will wake him up
as soon as he has got sleep
enough.
AVhen a person faints all that
is needed in to lay him down
flat on the floor nnd he will
"come to1' in double quick
time. lie fainted because the
heart missed a beat, failed for
an instant, failed for only once
to send the amount of blood to
the brain. If 3 611 place him in
a horizontal position, lay him
on his back, it does not require
much force of the heart to send
the blood on a level to the
head ; but you set a man up,
and the blood has to be shot
upward to the head, nnd-this
requires much more force; yet
in nine cases out of ten, if a
person faints and falls to . the
floor, the first thing done is to
run to him and set him on a
chair.
In npoplex)', there is too
much blood m the head, every
one can see that the best posi
tion is to set n man up, and the
blood ' naturally tends own
ward, ns much so as water, will
come out ot a bolt e when
turned upside down, if the cork
out.
The Cleanse Musty Barrels.
Put a quarter of a peck of
iinsiackeil J line in tlio bung
hole of the barrel,-into, which
pour a gallon of-boiling water
slack the lime, then put in
the bung and shake tho cask
veil so that the contents of it
will come in contact with all
tho inside. Let it stand a day
two, after which rinse it out
well with plenty of cold water.
tho barrel or , cask is still
musty, the same operation (
musi oe repeated. .

Improvements in Weaving
Apparatus.
A very
ingenuous
method
a Man
has been devised by
chester (England) mechanic of
joining tho emla of an old
warp to the end of a new warn
in weaving. According to "this
arrangement, the ends of the
old warp to which the ends of
ihe new warp have to be joined
are held in a clip, and the ends
f the new warp are nlso simi
:arly held. The two sheets of
warp are then, placed in the
machine; and the sheet of old
warp being placed over the
sheet of new, they are then
icted upon by the machine as
follows: The warp threads
are first laid evenly by nvans
of brushes, and a pair of chips
or nippers take hold of both
warps after they are laid ; these
nippers take the threads in a
pair of rollers 8et at an angle
to tighten the warp threads,
and the end thread of the old
warp that of the new are de
tached from the other threads
of the warp by a reciprocating
pair of nippers. The threads
thus takeu by those recipro
cating nippers are laid by oth
er nippers ove"' the side of a
tube, by which the two threads
are formed into a loop; andli
hook passed through a tube
takes hold of the ends of the
two warp threads and draws
them into a tube, so forming h
knot, the ends of the thread
having been severed by a cut
ting blade to allow this. Final
ly, the thread is tightened by
the threads being drawn thro'
a narrow nick, which will not
allow the knot to pass, and the
threads are cut close to the
knot.
Frequent instances of the
cure ot cancer by means of n
tea made from the common red
clover have been published ol
1 S , . I
late; ami as tne remedy is cer
tainly a harmless and inexpen
sive one, the qualities claimed
for it should be generally
known. The Boston Herald
says that a well known 1 sea
captain of Newburyportj' feels
certain that he has been cured
of a 'cancer on his noso by
nking tea made from red
cloyer tope, add using the
name preparation as an exter
nal application What was
considered a fully1 developed
cancer- two years and a half
ago has now almostcltsappeared
under this treatment.

Fear of Heart Disease.
The
heart disease is a very common
one.. "NVe knew an Indian olli
cer who indulged in it for
twenty years, to the great an
noyance and terror of his wit
and friends, and who died at a
good old age, with a perfectly
'sound heart,' physically speak
ing. 13y auscultation doctors
can very easily tell you wheth

The statement has been
made that the Khedive of
Egypt had become weary of
American officers in his army,
and meant to give them perma
nent leave of absence, is con
tradicted. A letter from one
the officers to' a gentleman in
New York states that the
story is a British yarn, and that
the Khedie has given no inti
mation of any such purpose.-
The writer further says'that
his pay doesn't amount to
much, but living is compara
tively cheap, and it is ns good
a passport in modern Egypf to
be an American citizen as it
was in ancient days to be a cit
izen of Home.

How to Preserve the Polish
of Metals.
The following composition
has proved very efficient to
prevent polished materials
from tarnishing.
Put half an ounce of solid
pararjin into a oouic Willi a
wide opening, and place it in
boiling water, when the con
tents will melt ; then add one
aud a half ounce of petroleum;
shake the mixture, after having
corked the bottle, until the
material becomes a cold oint
ment. In using cover the met
al with it, and wipe off after
ward the greater portion, so
that the polish be little affected.
The mixture forms a carburet
ted hydrogen compound, which
is un affected by moisture and
the pxygen of the air. A thin
coat is sufficient to prevent pol
ished metals from tarnishing.
A Brave Irishwoman.
The London dispatches re
port a case of womanly hero
ism which will probably give
its possessor an enviable im
mortality of fame, like Chat of
Grace Darling. It appears
that a vessel was wreceed off
Daogheda bar, iii plain sight
of the professional life boatmen,
who, nevertheless, refused to
go to her assistance until the
gale should abate. Already
had six men been swept from
the wreck by the waves and
drowned, when a lady put off
from the shore in a small boat,
and, at the ritk of her own life,
saved that )f one .man, still
clinging to the wreck. So runs
the telegraphic story; and. our
admiration for this feminine
heroism is only heightened by
the vivid contrast with what
for the present appears selfish
ness, if not poltroonery, on the
part of the men. Let us hope,
for the sake of the lifeboat ser
vice, that a fuller explanation
of the affair by mail will re
lieve the official boatmen from
the blame which now seems to
attach to them, since it can not
diminish, in any event, the lus.
ter of the achievement 'of this
brave woman.

The succHs-ful management
of the post office employes in
London, and in other public
service, was based 0:1 tho com
mon-sense principle of prevent
ing dianhea. For this pur
pose, during the prevalence of
the cholera epidemic in that
city, l)r. Waller Lewis pre
scribed the following orange
ade, which has been extensively
used with excellent effect:
Concentiated infusion of orange
peel, S ounces; sirup, 12 ounces;
boiled filtered water, 4 gallons.
Thoroughly mix and add 3 oz.
of dilute sulphuric acid, and
shake well, A wine glass full
taken at a draught, with tho
addition of a little more water
if desired.
At the London post-office
during the cholera epidemic, of
18GG, 1,350 gallons of this
beverage were cousnmed, with
the be.4 eflect upon tho men,
and it superseded to a great
extent the ne of raw water,
bail nle, beer, etc. For ordi
nary diarrhea it is excellent.
Be Not Deceived.
Nature lias 110 forgiveness
Providence has no forgiveness;
Revalation has forgiveness on
ly on conditions. It is of no
use, it can be of 110 use to ns
either here or hereafter, to at
tempt to practice deception on
ourselves. We must take God
as we find him, as he presents
Himself to us in Nature, in
Providence, in the "Word, and
m)t as we would make Him
over to suit our desires.' 'Be
not deceived. God is not
not mocked: for whatsoever a
man sowcth that shall he also
reap. He that soweth to the
flesh shall of the flesh reap cor
ruption, and he that soweth to
the Spirit bhall of the Spirit
reap life everlasting."
Christ was full of mercy,
his mission was a mission of
love 5 butyou can find nowhere
in tho Bible more terriDfic rep
resentations of the hopeless
eternal miseries of the wicked
in the future life than those
which are ascribed to Christ in
the Gospels. If these repre
sentations are not truthful, from
what source shall we correct
them? From Nature? But
Nature is altogether nioro re- '
lentlefwly aud hopelessly severe
than Christ. Christ otlei spar
don and life to all who will
accept Him but naturo has
no pardon for any transgressor.
From Providence? Look at
the history of mankind, at the . .
condition of the human race
from the beginning to the
present time. Does that look
like an indiscriminate "slobber
of mercy,'1 (as we recently
jieard an energetic layman ex
press it) on the part of tho
Creator and Ruler of men?
Nothing of the kind. Oh, tho
unspeakable, sickening miseries
of men in every generation in
consequence of their habitual
violation of God's laws! And
just so long ns the violation
lasts.the suffering will also last.
And tho violations . will last
