Dr, Tho in a F. Ituinbold, In a paper
on this ftiihject, attributes the nervous
prostration commonly attributed to

icrts to bo the result of excesses of alco
hol, tobacco, anil "colds" induced there
by. These practices, he Kays, Increase
the congestion of tho nasal mucous
membrane, producing- a tendency to
"col J,"cauilne; vascular paresis, which,
commencing' nt the periphery, gradual

Tho South African natives lu lioer

und one of the most curious Is that of
carrying olT a girl for a wife. The cus
tom is called "ukutwnla," and the girl,
though not Indisposed to accept the

in his way. The hiiltor watches his
opportunity (after first placing so
many head of cattle In the kraal of tho
girl's father) and eventually carries
away the girl by main force. Tho
heartrending cries of the bride as she
