ARSENIC IN WALL PAPER.
The rreval-nt Iei of Ita nHnRern.
Scientists Say Tlieic Is "Nothing in It."
In a popular ad Ircss before the New
York Academy of Medic ine, Dr. C. F.
Chandler recently t onsidered tlie subject
of "Arsenic in Common Life." Among
other things he pro -ceded to explode the
widely prevalent id -a concerning the dan
gers from arsenic in wall taper. Med teal
News reports ProfcwtrChandler as saying
that he hail liiinselt Itelieved in it without
ever maLiiiir any sip -rial investigation up
to the time win n Iim duties in connection
withthelio.ini of health rotiuired him to
make it a special s iuty. lie then found
that the idea had licen started hy a Itot
anist, and that it was liascd on the most
tlimsy reasoning, lie next made some ex
periment -i in the lalmratory by passing air
over sheets of papei some moist and oth
ers dry coated with Paris green. Nut a
trace of arsenic was found in this air.
A case of suppiwd arsenical poisoning
cited by Professor Chandler was an ex
mayor of Host on, w!io had liecn thought to
lie .sufTei ini; for a 1 nt? time from this form
of poi-onini;. but tl e postmortem examt
nation showeil tha, he had died from can
tor of the stomach. The wall paper that
li.i.l been supposed o lie the source of the
poisoning in his cas-- had not been changi'd
from IMTtolKfll. H'Lilo it i.s quite possible
lh.it in the old fash oned w all prper the nr
si -uieal dyes were loo4yauacllw tothe pa
peri!!d the nrscnic might U-corne d.-tached
and ilirt'useil throi glj (lie air, the amount
would ordinarily oe finite insiirniliijint.
and in the wall par cm made in the last fif
teen years no arscn cal pigments have liecn
ustil, and the pivse ice of nrsenic in these
papers, as determined by delicate chemical
tests, is due entirely to accidental impuri
ties, snimeof thep ipcrsi.: ! were thought
to have caused pois tiling had u;vn en the
walls for thirty or f rty years. !suppo-.iiif'
for the sake of art umeut, that there were
sixty sipiare yards. .f patter in a room, each
yard containing oa grain or arsenic the
amount found in s,- eral of t he cases quoted
and that during t period of thirty years
all the arsenic ha ; left the wall paper and

and they now are pi nnitted todrink freely'
Science says that Miil further than this
starting principali.- from the theoretical
consideration that the poisonous products
of the action of dist ase producing bacteria
in the infectious di -vases may be got rid of
by washing them out, a few physicians
have tried the administration of drinks in
very great quant it ies much more than
the patients w.ml 1 voluntarily call for.
For instance. Or. Yalentini, of Konigs
berg, directs the ni r-cs to give the typhoid
fever patients milk, bouillon and water in
quantities that would appear impractica
ble if mentioned. In addition to it all he
has latterly given M grams of sugar of
milk dissolved in a liter of water as a food
and to increase the diuretic effect. The
results, we are tol l, are surprising. The
patients were more comfortable than be
fore the beginnipgof the treatment, and
all the cases tcr.: :i ated favorably.
GOOD FORM IN NOTE PAPER.
Artistic Simplicity the I'mprr Thinj;.
Kcrentric Stylea Should He Avoided.
"If there is any one thing in the world
that may Ik- said t denote the breeding of
a person it is in thr taste displayed in the
use of note paper,' says Harper's Bazar,
which furnishes th following information
in regard to "the e' iquctte of note paper:"
"Fashions change I uit slightly in that line,
and artistic simpl: -ity is the form : lie
sought after. The-.' is nothing so oll'en
sive as eccentricity in styles of paper, for
it is one of the little things that s,..:n so
trivial and count for so much in the eyes
of the world. The height of bad form is in
the use of anything startling or pro
nounced. Paper that rivals the sunset in
gorgeousness of hue, odd shaped sheets
and envelopes, or gilt edged paper stamp
the user at once as one who is not familiar
with the precepts of fashion. And not
fashion alone liy n iy means; it is refine
ment that is shown in the use of proper
stationery, and n finement and fashion
may not always i ican the same. Never
use a paper that is decorated with flowers
in one corner, the 1 -a ves of which wander
all over the sheet. Avoid anything in that
Indies should us only the smaller size
of paper, requiring but one fold, and the
envelope should lie square. The single cor
respondence cards have gone out of style
and are seldom see i nowadays. The paper
is generally linen or cream laid, as best
suits individual taste, and should be un
ruled. White or e x'am paper is the best,
although a gentle shade of blue is per
mitted. Other tints are not desirable,
neither are they pr iper. Do not use paper
that is ragged at the edges nor envelopes
with curious flaps. The liest linen paper
may 1m; purchased it the same price as is
paid for the fancy varieties, and the best is
the cheapest; it is a guarantee of refine
ment. If a mouogram is desired, have it en
graved never pri ited. In this country
coats of arms and crests are out of place,
but you may have & neat monogram of your
initials for a heading with perfect pro
priety, only be sure that the work is in
keeping with taste, mid not too prominent
nr glaring. The name of your country
lilacc is very good, the name of the village
fn which you live, ir the street number if
you chance to resii e in a city. In the lat
ter case, however, omit the name of the
town, nnd in eitlcr case the state should
not be given. This is but a glance at the
etiquette of note paper. The one great
thing in note paper is to avoid vulgarity or
show iu any way, i nd then you know that
you cannot be wrong. The simplest is the
Heaven knows what would liecomn nf
our sociality if we never visited people we
speak ill of; we si ould live like Egyptian
hermits in trrowdefl solitude.

Keuve des Mathurins a fussy little man
being informed that an applicant for his
vacant third floor had presented himself,
desired him to be shown tip, in order that
he might treat with him in person.
"Monsieur," said he, when the terms had
been discussed and agreed to, 'there are
two conditions on which I insist as a sine
"Indeed! pray what are they?" ' -
"You shall hear. First, it is expressly
stipulated in my house that t he grand stair
case shall lie exclusively reserved for dis
tinguished visitors. Common piKiple, such
as artists and literary men, can only be ad
mitted by the I tack stairs."
"By all means," assented the applicant.
"I am a literary man myself, but that
doesn't in the least signify. What is the
"That my lodjrers. either on going out. or
coming in, make a point of occasionally
stopping for a lit t le chat w it u my concierge,
w ho is a sort of connection of mine, and in t

ters the poor fellow."
"Sol should imagine," dryly replied thf
other, making an effort to preserve Lis
gravity; "we have all our little weakness
es, and no one more than myself. Tenez.
whenever 1 come across an idiot who
wastes my time with intolerable absurdi
ties I feel an irresistible impulse exactly
as 1 have at this moment to open the win

Before the astonished proprietor had re
covered from his stupor his visitor had dis

The late Horace Lclantl. who for ni.niv
i years kept the Li-land hotel at Spring
: field, Ills., was a generous man and a
j iover oi children. Une day he aud John
A. C. Andrews, then sneaker of tha
J Illinois house of representatives, were
: walking ont togetuer, when they met a
J man with a cluster of toy lialloons.
, School was just out, and hundreds of
, hoys and girls came pouring from a
j iimlding near at hand.
"Hold on. Are." said Mr. Lei. i ml.

as inu Ii fairness as liossible. Then bo
put Ins band into his pocket and said, "I

"Not a cent." aid the judge with as
sumed gravity, "I wouldn't trust you
with a dime."
"See," said the man, "your own friend
no will trust you. You give me my
money or I will call de policeman."
Just then there hapjtcned along an old
beggar woman who had lived upon tho
bounty of the good people of Springfield
for many a year. She stopped and heard
enough of the conversation to know what
it was about.
"Hould on, Misther Layland," said
she; "if yerfoine friend there won't lavo
ye loan av a dollar, Oim the friend that
will," and as she lectured Judge An
drews for the "stingiest ould thing outi
o' jail," she unrolled the money from a
dirty rag and gave it to the philanthro
pist. Judge Andrews says he never tried to
play just that kind of a joke on Horace
Leland again. New York Tribune.
