Many families that number dyspep
tics among their members are now
taking what might be termed the
toast cure, toast being substituted for
bread at every meal. In many cases
the good results have been rapid. A
woman of my acquaintance has been
steadily improving, with fewer and
fewer attacks of indigestion, since
her doctor recommended this simple
experiment. However, the toast
made in the ordinary way, that is
soggy within and scorched outside,
will not benefit.
The bread must be thoroughly
dried out in the oven before toasting,
then brought to a golden brown. Per
haps more than one dyspeptic suffer
er could trace the misery back to
soggy bread. Even "second day
bread" is not dry enough for a deli
cate stomach, and contrary to an er
roneous idea held by many, toast
(properly made) does not cause a
sluggish state of the system or work
any other evil.
COLOR LIKED BY MOSQUITOES.
Little Pests Found to be Partial to
Color plays an important part In
the attraction or repulsion of certain
insects. It was noticed during the
Cuban war that the American sol
diers who were clad in the regulation
navy-blue shirts suffered much more
severely than any others from the
bites of mosquitoes. The surgeon
general instituted a series of tests.
He had boxes painted with various
colors and placed in a mosquito
haunted neighborhood. It was found
that the one painted blue attracted
108 insects, next came brown and
dark red, but these attracted only
two each. Yellow failed to secure
a single mosquito visitor. As a con
sequence, blue shirts will no longer
be issued to troops in mosquito-Infest
ed regions. Travelers are recom
mend to wear some khaki-colored
material when journeying in the trop

when he went into a Bowery restau

as "Ham aud "Sinkers and

poached eggs on toast for two, with

who was equal to the emergency,
walked to the end of the room and

Wreck 'em." It is related that Dr.
Beecher nearly fainted.
Material for "Hot Stuff."
A veracious chronicler of the times
of Jonathan Bdwards gives figures
which prove a liberal consumption of
fuel in the household of the great
theologian. In the winter of 1740-41
the town of Northampton supplied th
Edwards parsonage with seventy-five
loads of wood in the next season
eighty-two loads were delivered for
the succeeding winter the total was
seventy-eight, and a year afterward
the astonishing quantity of ninety-five
loads was supplied. There was no
lack of fire at the Edwards hearth. Is
it wonderful, then, that he preached

Mrs. Gilbert tells in her inimitably
humorous way of a lifelong friend of
hers, an elderly maiden who is
always sent for by nephews and
nieces when an interesting event
takes place in their households. This
maiden aunt had occasion to visit
the dentist some little time ago, and
was accompaned by Mrs. Gilbert.
Gas was administered and when the
patient was emerging from under its
influence she horrified the dentist by
crying excitedly: "Is it a boy or a
girl?"New York Times.
Drug Drinking in London.
The new license act in London has
brought to light the fact that a great
quantity of drugs that cannot be
brought within the meaning of the
act as intoxicants are drunk by peo
ple, upon whom it has the effect of
habitual drunkenness. Among things
tnat are thus consumed are methylat
ed spirits and eau de cologne, and the
practice is especially prevalent
among society people, chiefly women,
who would resent the imputation that
they were drunkards.
