Gold la Colon.
When gold is dissolved in nitro-mnriatie
acid it forms chloride of gold, a beautiful
yellow liquid used by gilders, photogra
phers andothera. When this solution is di
luted with water, and chloride of tin is
added, metallic gold is precipitated as a
beautiful purple powder, which is used for
gilding and coloring porcelain and glass.
This powder is called "purple of Cassius,"
from the name of its discoverer, Andreas
Cassias, of Ijeyden, who made it for the
first time in the year 16S5.
In gilding porcelain it is spread upon ths
pattern by means of a paste, and by the
action of heat in the oven it takes the or
dinary golden hue and brilliancy, but by
modifying the composition of the paste it
yields also rose and purple colors. When
a small quantity of it is mixed with the
materials used in making glass the glass
produced has a magnificent ruby tint, seen
to perfection in the well known Bohemian
glass. Chambers' Journal.

Christmas Day Salata.
Frtyr was the god who maintained the
sanctity of marriages. Rosemary, the fav
orite plant of the god. is commonly worn
today by brides in Kurope. Many lovesick
maidens consult the saints who now pre
side over the second Christmas day or New
Year's eve about their future lovers or hus
bands. They remain up till midnight or
the early morning hoars, for it is at night
that the gods travel unseen among men.
The saints to whom these days are now
sacred have succeeded the pagan god Freyr
and retain his attributes. New York

There are many thinpr to bo taken
into consid2ration iu buying sheep.
About the first tiling a parc'xwier will
look at, says The Breeder a.Kl Sportsman,
is the fcize of the sh-ep, a:id th next is
the length of the wool it lias oa its back,
and to th average man tli;;t is about all
that constitutes a heep. Dat is t'uat all?
Now what does it take to constitute a
typical sheep? First, it ta'ces size. What
is size? Is it a 6heep that is stuck up in
the air oa a pair of legs two feet long?
No, it is a sheep that has short legs and a
heavy body of good length and properly
shaped, is square on the shoulders, with
round rib, good, straight back, well
rounded ham, heavj brisket, two or three
rolls around his nock. The next point i3
the constitution. Yot don't want to bread
to a ram that is like two slabs laid to
gether with pins driven in for lejrs. Hot
will we tell when a f-heep has a good con
stitution? He will stan J wit'a his heal
erect, not tacked down, and a sheep with
good constitution will keep iu good con
dition uuder favora'ole circamstaastsi.
What else should a typical shaep pos
sess? Wtol covering. Does this mean
wool three to five inches Ions on the
back and noae on the les anl belly?
"Nay, verily" th-i model sheep has "a
good length of wool oa the back and
sides, and the most iui.wrtaat of all is ti
have od length oa tin? b-lly anl lea.
Don't buy a ram unless he has a good
length of wool on his lielly an 1 lejs
wool down to the hoof. ILw abat his
head? It rau.t be well wooled n.nva the
face Mow the eyes and np the thro.it
well along the choyt. The wool hhonld
be white with dark points, throwing out
rlerty of oil. Some may say that a
greasy sheep is not fit to" breed, as it
cannot t-t.md the cold. There is a differ
ence between an oily eheep aad a gum
my one. A sheep that has yellow gura
in his W(xl can't stand anything, but a
sheep that has white oil will come
througb all right and will be fat and
A leading druggist in the
northern part of the 6tate eaid
to us the other day: "There is
on thing abont Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Cure that is
different from any other medi
cine I ever saw, and that is.
that it is generally and enthu
siastically endorsed by leading
citizens in the city where it is
manufactured. Most medicines
are popular away from home,
but Reid's German Cough and
Kidney Cure is endorsed, and
its merits attested, by citizens
who have used it and who are
acquainted with it." Em-reon!
says, "The strongest testimonial
one can offer is the opinion of
his neighbor." It is to the
merit of Reid's German Conch
and Kidney Cure that those
who are most conversant with
it are the loudest in its praisa
and those who have seen it usrd
oftenest, are the most re.t.iy tu
recommend it. Mr Mi hi-1
Snider, for man in the P-fiin
Journal office in Peoria, is a
cas-i in point. He had b--n
euffr-riug with kidney troub:e.
aud he was attacked while
making up" with a severe pain
across the small of his back.
His sufferings were severe, an 1
he was finally taken home. 11
was persuaded to try a bottle of
"t ; ,3 1 n n v. j f!3
avciva o "ciuiau vuugu uiu iyju-
ney Cure, and to hia astonish
ment he was cured and able to
resume his work, nor has he
had a severe attack since, al
though he was often subjected
to them before. It also shows
that Reid's German Cough and
Kidney Cure will relieve kidney
trouble, for this was Mr. 8nider's
malady, and what he had been
treated for by all the physicians
in the city, and it had been so
pronounced. Since he be can
taking this medicine, he never
was so well in his life.
