HOW TO "HELLO.'
Mtne Fellte lllatn for the al'tanr
t I'fttroaa if the Telephone F.x
The following rules for the guidance of
patrons of the telephone exchange should
be posted on the wall beside the telephone
and carefully scanned at least once a day,
If not more frequently referred to:
If you have a telephone In your store,
ring up central and then go and wait on a
customer, ray no attention to the bell
when central rings bark but go back to
the telephone in about fifteen minutes,
ring up central and make a big "kick"
because central did not wait for you.
Always speak crossly and swear at the
central. JSlie likes that. -
Mumble in an undertone and if central
does not hear you tell her to "take the
cotton out of her ears.
Take your time answering your bell, or
what is Ix-ltcr, do not answer it at all
but in half an hour ling up and ask who
called you up, and make a big "kick if
central has forgotten who it whs.
Always ak ci-ntral to transfer the nies
sage for you She likes to do this, as she
generally has nothing todo.nnd tit is helps
to kill time for her.
Allow everybody who wants to, to use
the telephone. Hang the rereivt-r hit: end
up, as in this way it cet full of dust,
making another excuse for complaint.
Spit tobacco juice in the transmitter
occasionally, as this improves the sound.
Hefuse to pny toll mcsiHgex, mid if yon

If the girl tells you Hint a certain
number wanted has had its ""phone"
taken out. tell her you know better, that
you talked to that number the other day,
ami if she don't give you communication,
you will report her to the manager.
If she tells you that a certain tele

and she is at the other end of it, and
can't see you. If she tries to talk bark
slam up your 'phone, and then sit
down and pride yourself on the reputa
tion you have for natural gentleness of
disposition, especially with the Indies.
The following from the New Yotk
World will be of local interest everywhere
just at present: An extraordinary fallacy
is a dreaM of night air. What air can we
breathe at night but night air? The
choice is between pure night air without
and foul air within. Most people prefer
the latter; an unaccountable choice.
What will they say if it is proved to tie
true that fully one-half of all diseases we
suffer from are occasioned by people
sleeping with their windows shut? An
open window most nights in the year can
never hurt any one. In great cities
night air is often the best and purest
to be had in twenty-four hours. One
could better understand shutting the
windows in town during the day than
during the night for the sake of the sick.
The absence of smoke, the quiet, all tend
to make the night the best time for airing
the patient. One of our highest medical
authorities on consumption and climate
has told me that the air of London is
never so good as after 10 o'clock at night.
Always air your room then, from the out
side air, if possible. Windows are made
to open, doors are made to shut a truth
which seems extremely difficult of com
prehension. Every room must lie aired
from without, every passage from within.

Looking I p Their ItrrurilM.
The railway postal clerks are at present
getting the old family bibles down off the
shelves and looking over their birth rec
ords very earnestly, in consequence of a
circular which they have just received
from the postofllce department, asking
for a full and complete description of
their pedigree, when they were born, the
year, month and day, all about their par
ents, and children, if they have any, and
if not to be afraid of mentioning the
fact; the color of thecyes and hair.wheth
er they were in the army or not, when
wounded, if wounded at all, what battle
they were in and how long they were in
the service, whether they own the resi
dence they live in or rent it. The circu-
cular, however, neglects to inquire the
size and color of the house and w hether
the lawn is kept in good condition.

CUSTER'S LAST RALLY.
4-Pftw'n Realistic Representation of
the Little Bis Hern CenAiet.
The feature de resistance of the "Wild
West" and Forepaugh combination,
which, by the way, appears in this city
Thursday, August 1, is an intensely vivid
reproduction of that last great conflict be
tween the forces of civilization and bar
barism the sanguinary engagement be
tween United State troops led by the
immortal Custer, and the implacable
Sioux marshalled by the formidable Sit
ting Bull, on the Little Big Horn.
Montana, June 25, 1876. This mimic
battle has created a profound sen
sation wherever Mr. Forepaugh has ex
hlbited. No such thrilling realism and
impressive effects were ever before wit
nessed in a dramatic production. The
representation brings into requisition
fully two hundred scouts, cowboys, In
dians and cavalrymen. The noted Sioux
chief, "Kain-in-the Face." himself the
reputed slayer of Custer, commands the
Indian contingent, while Dr. Carver.who
bears a striking resemblance to the pic
tures of General Custer, impersonates
that lamented hero. The charge of one
hundred mounted and accoutred cavalry
men down the great hippodrome track is
said to he a magnificent spectacle. The
Custer battle will attract no little atten
Advertise the Town.
Nine years apo Chattanooga, Tenn.,
raised a large sum of money for the pur
pose of advertising its advantages. The
money was well spent, althought it did
not bring in an immediate return. It
made the town talked shout. induced capi
talists and investors to go there and exam
ine its advantages; and as it was built on
solid foundations, these visits resulted in
large investments and immigration. The
result is seen today in a city o nearly
50,000 people, where nine years ago there
were hut 12,000, and possessing hun
dreds of new and profitable industries.
Chattanooga has proved that great advan
tages come from judicious advertising:
and every promising city may reap simi
lar rewards from making known its re
sources. We haye noticed a disposition
on the part of somp of them to expect too
immediate returns from an investment of
this kind. They expect to see capital and
immigrants pouring in the very moment
the appeal for them is made. Chatta
nooga has learned better; has discovered
that it takes some years for this advertis
ing to have an effect, but that if the ad
vantages of a town are really all it claims
it need have no fear that capital will not
nntimately bnd it out and build it up.
Chattanooga was one of the first of
southern cities to advertise. It is con
frequently one of the first to secure the
benefits of advertisements.

We are too apt to regard a small ail
ment much as we would some pigmy, un
pleasant of aspect and prankish indeed
but incapable of serious mischief. We
ignore the fact that it grows prodigiously,
strengthens in proportion, and begets evil
progeny. A fit of indigestion, a slight
bilious attack, sensations of unrest and
languor when the system should have
been braced by recent sleep, un accounts'
ble nervousness, inactivity of the kidneys
or bladder what are these but the pre
cursors of obstinate and serious bodily
disturbance? In cither of the above
emergencies, common sense and exper
ience unite in indicating Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters as the best preventive
rarticularly should its use be prompt
when the languor, yawning, chilliness
down the back, and feverishness that
precede a malarial attack, manifest thems
selves. Incipient rheumatism grows apace.
