Every one should understand that of all
the myriads of lwicteria about us in earth
and air and water, the great majority are
harmless. With very few exceptions the
bacteria which can do us harm are those,
and those alone, which come from the
bodies of men and animals afflicted with
disease. So fur as water is concerned and
the same applies to ice it is only sewage
pollution or stagnant filth which we have
to fear and shun. Good, pure, uncontami
nated water, and ice made from such wa
ter either by nature or by man, are en
tirely wholesome, and they are not made
more wholesome by distillation or other
purifying procedure they are not more
wholesome when germ free.
So in the manufacture of ice. if t he water
which is used be contaminated and impure,
the preliminary distillation is of primary
importance for the salubrity of the ice;
but if the water be pure, the distillation is
only valuable for the technical purpose of
removing the dissolved air.
In point of fact, most of the artificial ice
which the writer has examined and there
have been many and abundant samples
from various sources collected, and for a
period of many months does contain bac
teria in varying numlx-rs. The prelimi
nary distillation, if carefully done, destroys
any disease producing germ forms which
might lie present in the water used. But
a certain numlier of the more hardy harm
less forms may be carried bodily with the
steam into the condensers. T. Mitchell

une. A lteetle That Makes a "Ticking" Noise.
The deathwatch lieetle has the invariable
habit of feigning death when seized or dis
turbed. The simulation is so jiersi.stent
that when immersed in water, or even in
alcohol, the insect remains perfectly im
movable, and will allow itself to be burned
alive rather than lx-tray itself.
The larva of the insect lives in wood
work (framework, old furniture, etc.),
which it gnaws in the interior without
anything outside betraying its presence.
A few weeks after it has been transformed
to the crysalis state the perfect insect
comes forth and makes its exit from the
wood by boring a cylindrical hole in it,
which thereafter shows that the wood has
been attacked and is often mutilated to
such a degree that it is virtually destroyed.
A smaller species of the same genus
works equal havoc not only with wood,
but with books, herbia, natural history
collections, cork, dry bread, crackers, etc.

A GREAT REMEDY.
An opiate will relieve pain
but it will not cure disease; this
is a fact admitted by every phy
sician. It is generally suppos
ed that a cough remedy must
contain an opiate; this, howev
er, is not only unnecessary, but
often times it is positively inju
rioue. Reid's German Cough
and Kidney Cnre contains no
opiates. In order to assure the
public on this point, we present
below the testimony of Mr.
Charles B.Allaire, the head of
the house of Allaire, Wood
ward & Co., pharmacists and
drug millers, of Peoria. Mr. Al
laire is a chf mist of recognized
ability and authority; he is a
gentleman of wealth aud influ
ence, and he stands high Lot
only in his profession, but as a
business man and citizen. He
eays; " I am acquainted with
the formula of heid'a German
Cough and Kidney Cure Jand
know that the claim that is
made for it that it contains no
opiate or any deleterious sub
stance is strictly true. It is an
exceedingly valuable remedy,
and I am glf,d to know that it
is meeting with such large
sale." This shows that every
claim that has been made for
this great remedy can be sub
stantiated. If your druggist
will not order it for you, write
to us. Small bottles 25c, larare
