And this must le the effect of all

Some Timely Don't.
The season is at hand when pneu

thousands of victims. The great in
crease in the number of cases has led
the New York board of health to pub
lish a few hints on how to avoid the
dread disease. A few of these siirjres
fions are given lie low:
Don't stop treating a "slight cold"
until it is completely cured.
Don't go into the cold air in an over
Dn"t go out of an overheated room
into the street without wrapping up.
Don't stay in an overheated room
any ! ngr than you can help it. A
moderate temperature is more health
ful. Don't sit in an overheated car too
tightly bundled up.
Don't drink, too much.
I)(.n"l go without a proper amount
of sleep; rest is necessary' to keep the
body in proper state of resistance.
Don't hesitate to see ihe doctor. A
stitch in time may save an under
These rules are good anywhere. It
is to lie observed that three of them
deal with overheated rooms. That is
a condition all too commonly found in
steam-heated homes and office. Noth
ing is more enervating, and yet it is a
matter thai seem to receive very lit
tle public attention.
Tile pneumonia scourge is one of
the tnost widespread and deadly with
which this country has to ileal. It i
a regrettable fact that a large pro
portion of deaths from this disease
are due to lack of such simple pre
cautions a are suggested above.

The Metal Soldier.
Antoine Gaspaid. a tobacconist in a
imall town near Paris, tired of having
the wooden figure standing before his
shop hacked by gamins, concluded to
replace it by a metal one. Since he
was t make a change be might as
well get up something unitjue. so he
went to the city and employed a young
art student to design a figure for him.
The artist hit upon a soldier lighting
his pipe. The butt of his gun rested
Dn th.; ground. With one hand he held
a match; with the other shaded the
flame from the wind, only there waa
no flame. Then a happy thought struck
Gaspard. A tube was run from the
pipe down through the statue aud into
the shop. . The match was hollow and
connected with the gas pipes. A mov
able plate covered with phosphorus was
adjusted to the roughened end of the
match. By means of a wire leading to
the shop the plate could le pulled and
the gas lighted. Gaspard sucked a
rubber tule leading from the pipe,
which would send forth clouds of to
bacco smoke. Then he would turn oft
the If ft tit from the match.
When the Franco-Prussian war came
an, tJaspard s sou. Pierre, aged eighteen,
became a French soldier. His old
mother, who doted on him. begged hard
for him to stay at home and wept bit
ter tears when he marched away.
Then came the news that the Prus
sians were carrying everything before
them and inarching ou Paris. One
evening just after dark old tJaspard's
door was flung open, and Pierre rushed
in. pale, bleeding, evidently fleeing for
"Is the place occupied by our troops?"
"Then 1 am lost."
"I volunteered to lnrt near the en
emy's advance posts to gain informa
tion for our general as to which route
they would take. I was discovered
and pursued. In a few minutes they
will be here."
"We can hide you."
"It would be useless. .They will
search every house in the town and
burn every stick of timber in it to
inn-over me. My only hope was that
our troojis were here, si ml since they
are not I shall be taken and hanged
for a spy. I have been tired on and
am wounded. I can go no farther for
loss of blood."
Meanwhile the Prussian outposts,
consisting of a dozen men. advanced
to within half a mile of the town,
where they were halted by the lieuten
ant in command.
"The pla-e may be occupied by the
French." he said. "We must be care
ful not to be drawn Into a trap. You.
Battel, and you. Rubidoux. go for
ward. If you are shot. we-shall know
that the French are there. If they are
not. come back and let us know."
The two men pushed forward to the
very verge of the town. Across an open
space they could see old Guspard's
shop, which was dimly lighted, as
"Ruck, Rubidoux." wluspered Battel.
"The place is occupied."
"How do you know?"
"I can sih the figure of a soldier."
"There, before that little shop."
"Ry gar! You are right. What shall
"Return aud report the matter to the
Back they went and reported that
the French were in town. They had
seen a soldier on post before a shop.
"Nonsense:" exclaimed the lieuten
ant. "If they were there they would
have put out a picket or a vedette.
He ordered the men to spread them
selves as skirmishers and move stealth
ily forward. When tbey came o the
place where Battel had discovered the
soldier, they stopped, and there, true
enough, he was, standing liefore old
"What's he doing?" queried the lieu
tenant. "He's on post." said Rubidoux. "Per
haps he's guarding the man we're aft
er." "You're a fool, or, rather, a coward.
You wish me to abandon the pursuit of
one w lio doubtless holds important se
crets. That fellow may not 1 a sol
dier at all. Singular that he stands so
still. Come: we are wasting time."
At that moment the figure In front
of the shop was dimly illuminated by
a tiny flame, and the -Prussians could
plainly see that the main was a soldier,
with his gun resting on the gronnd
and leaning against hishoulder. The
flame rose and fell as of lone pulling on
the pipe, and smoke wasialso visible.
"Sacre:" exclaimed the lieutenant.
"He's a soldier, after all. and' where
there is one there must be more. The
French are not fool to -occupy a town
wilh one man. There nraist 1m ait least
a battalion, but they an- very poor sol
diers to leave no picket out here. We
might capture them."
The trrii-er decided to go back as fast
a he could and reiorted that tber
was a foriv of the enemy in the town,
with no picket out. and they might be
surrounded ami taken. An hour later
two regiments of the line moved out.
One encircled the town, while the other
advanced to demand . surrender. The
only French soldier in the town was a
metal one tluit had the coolness as the
Prussians advanced to light his pipe.
Old Gaspard after lis son's arrival
had gone out to reimniter. and In con
cealment lie had heard Battel and Ru
bidoux converse about his statue.
When they withdrew he went back,
got tip a team to remove his son and
to ealn time conceived the plan of mak
ing his soldier smoke for the Prussians.
When they came in force. Pierre had
Jnirt been driven away.
