upon the scope of tne resolution as
imon the question of printing, the res
olution was declared out of order,

A subscriber whose old chickens have
a white substance around the entranco
to the windpipe and become wheezy,
while the young pullets arc affected
with swollen eyes, asks for a cure.
From the symptoms described It is
impossible to say whether or not it is a
case of true roup. Roup proper is a
contagious disease and appears to be
induced by cold, damp, dark and filthy
quarters. Even drafts of cold nir de
scending on the fowls while at roost
seem to bring on the malady. But so
similar are the symptoms of roup and
several throat and nasal troubles
caused by the samo bad hygienic sur
roundings mentioned that It is difficult
to tell the true nature of the disease.
For this reason we can place but little
reliance on most of tho oases where it
is claimed that roup has been cured.
The symptoms of true roup aro dull
ness and general languor, ruffled feath
ers, loss of appetite and rapid wheezy
breathing. There is a watery discharge
from the nostrils which later becomes
thick and foul smelling. When the
nostrils become closed the discharge
exudes from the eyes, thus causing
blindness and the head to swell. In
severe cases sores form under the thick
yellowish cheesy matter in tho throat
and on the face. I have consulted with
Dr. James haw as to the best treat
ment for roupy fowls. He recommends
as follows: Sp'ay and swab the throat,
mouth and nostri s thoroughly with a
solution of 1 ounce hyposulphite of
soda to 1 quart of water. The house
should be thoroughly disinfected to
kill all germs of the disease which may
be lodged about the walls and floor.
To do this spray with a solution of
chloride of lime 4 ounces to 4 quarts of
water. Provide the fowls with warm,
dry, sunny quarters and feed warm,
nutritious food in good variety, always
keeping pure water and grit accessible.

The Indian and the dog hsd killed the
deer together, and the dog's owner was

and delivered in full the classical
declamation: ' My name is Norval,"
with appropriate gestures, just as ho
had many times given it at school.
Nothing could have been better. The
Indian and the white man shook hands

Speaking of the strange, eventful his
tory of vords, tho Hartford Courant
notes tliat "queen" originally meant
simply a woman, but now designates
the most glittering placo which tho
earth can bestow.wliilo with the slight
ly different spelling of "quean" it
stands for a woman of a different sort;
so, too, "lmavc" at tho start meant
only a boy, as in the German form,
"knabe;" but as boys go wrong some
times the word in time obtained an un
pleasant meaning. The word "imp"
might have been added as having very
much the same history ot "knave," for,
meaning, first, a scion or shoot, it next
stood for a child, and now it means an
inferior devil. Lord Bacon spoke of
"those most virtuous and goodly young

Tho days of big tips arc said to bo
numbered, and in consequence sadness
reigns among the waiters in the promi
nent hotels and fashionable restaurants
of the land. A writer in the New York
Commercial Advertiser says: "Where a
rich man would give a tip of one dollar
he now gives, on ordinary occasions, a
quarter of a dollar. And somo even
condescend to offer a dime. At first tho
waiters used to show by the cold staro
on their faces that they did not caro
for such a Email tip, but now they take
it with a faint attempt at amiability.
Where a party, however, has a swell
champagne lunch after the theater tho
waiter is never tipped less than fifty,
cents. lie is not surprised to reccivo
ono dollar. A certain. millionaire has a
habit of putting the amount of his
pour boiro on the corner of the table as
soon as he sits down. The waiters do
not consider it good form."
