A Cure for Fistula.
There are two things that will
euro fistula. One is corrosive sub
limate liniment, to be used in the
first stages of the disease, and the
other is the May-apple root lini
ment. Boil a gallon of May-apple
root in water making a strong du
eoction. Boil it until you obtain a
thick syrup. Bo not burn it. While
still boiling add a quarter as much
lard as you have syrup, stirring it
all the time you are adding the lard.
It is then ready for use. Spread
this on the fistula every morning.
At night wash over with warm
water and castile soap then spread
on some grease. When pus begins
to ooze out freely, spread on more
thickly, and let it remain twenty
four hours, then wash off and grease
as before. Bo not let it remain on
longer than twenty-four hours at a
time. It will cure.

The Newspaper Puff.
The newspaper puff is something
that makes men feel bad if they
don't get. The ground-work of an
ordinary newspaper puff consists of
a moral character and a good book
account. Writing newspaper puffs
is like mixing sherry cobblers and
mint julips all through the summer
months for customers and quench
ing your own thirst with rain-water.
Sometimes a man is looking for a
puff and don't get it, then he says
the paper is- going down hill, and
that it is in the hands of a monop
oly, and he would stop subscribing
if he did not have to pay his bill
first. Writing a newspaper puff
is like taking the photograph of a
homely baby. If the photograph
the child with
wings and halos and harps it shows
that the artist does not understand
his business. So it is with the
newspapor puff if the puffed does
not stand out like a bold and fear
less exponent of truth and morality,
it shows that the puffer doesn't
understand human nature. It is
more fun to see a man read a puff
of himself than to see a man slip
on an 6range-peel. The narrow
minded man reads it over seven or
eight times and then goes around
to the different places where the
paper is taken and steals what he
can. The kind-hearted family man
goes home and reads it to his wife,
and then pays up his bill on the pa
. per. The successful business man
who advertises and makes money,
starts immediately to find the news
paper man, and speaks a word of
grateful acknowledgment and en
couragement Then the two men
start out of the sanctum and walk
thoughtfully down the street to
gether, and the successful man
takes sugar in his, and they both
eat a olove""or- two: and life is
sweeter, and peace settles down like
a turtle d?in their hearts and after
a while lamp posts gets more plen
tiful and everybody seems more or
less intoxicated, but the hearts of
these two men are filled with name
less joy, because they know when
to stop and not make themselves
The Whistling Well.
F. S. Oaki'H In Sclfiitlllc'Aimnlcan.
In accordance with a request
made to me I write what I believe
to be the first description of what
is known locally as the " whistling
well," that has appeared in any sci
entific publication. The well is lo
cated on the farm of Colonel Weston
Flint (for many years Patent Office
Librarian), in the town of Great
Valley, Cattaraugus County, N. Y.,
about 20 miles from where the
writer now resides.
About forty-five years ago the
father of Colonel Flint undertook
to dig a well. At a depth of 20
feet a little water was found, but
as it was thought to be insufficient, I
the well was continued to a depth of
40 feet, and ended in coarse gravel,
with no trate of water, except that
already mentioned. Thinking that
the cavity might form a reservoir
for the dripping water from the
small vein that had been cut, the
well was stoned up in the usual
way. No water, however, accumu
lated, and as a water-well it was a
failure. Before long it was discov
ered that at times a strong draught
of air rushed into the well, and at
other times rushed out with equal
A flat stone with a 1 J-iirch hole
through the center was fitted over
the mouth of the well. Into the
hole was fitted a whistle, which
changed its tone, dependent upon
the upward or downward current
of air through it. It was soon
learned that the whistle was a most
reliable weather prophet or barom
In settled weather the whistle
was silent. An approaching storm
was heralded by the warning
shriek of the whistle as the air
rushed out of the well, but as clear
ing weather approached the cur
rent of air changed and rushed into
the well, and the faithful whistle
told the story by its changed tone,
When I last visited the well,
which was about five years ago, the
whistle had been removed as worn
out, but the flat stone with a hole
in it was and is now in place.
While the air was rushing out
one day, I tried to test the pressure
by putting a chip of wrood the size
and thickness of a man's hand over
the hole and it was thrown up more
than 12 inches. I have often Been
it during a rain storm, and as the
water began to run down through
the hole, the out-flow jng current of
air threw it up in spray several
feet high, giving it the appearance
of a fountain.
This well attracted a good deal
of, local attention at first, but a gen
erationoi people has grown up
abgiv&K, and I do not so often hear
i spoken of as a curiosity, but it is
the staple source of weather prog-
Slications in that vicinity.
The surface-rock in that vicinity
is a sort of sandstone, and the un
derlying rock is slate and is "in
place." There is no limestone,
hence no connection with caves. No
scientific investigations have ever
been made of the whistling well.
A well somewhat similar, located
somewhere in the South, was de
scribed by a writer in the Scientific
American about two years ago, and
an explanation asked for, but tjius
far there has been no response p ub
lished. , ;
