A Gallant Tbosjgh Needless Act.
"In Chicago during the hardest part of
the winter," said William Munsell the
other day, "I was walking along Dearborn
street holding my ears and pressing along
through the crowd of other half frozen peo
ple on the street. Presently I noticed a
yonng lady in evident distress. She was
ravisbingly beautiful. Having been in the
drug business several years, I was well ac
quainted with corns, chilblains and frost
bites and their remedies. My practiced eye
detected a dangerous symptom. The end
of the charming young lady's nose was as
white as a china egg while the remainder,
of it was as red as a tomato. Hex nose is
frozen, and she doesnt know It,' I thought.
Quick as a flash I sprang to her side and
with my customary gallantry proffered my
assistance. Before she could answer I did
what I knew the occasion demanded, and I
grabbed np a handful of snow and rubbed
her nose. Her face flushed with indigna
tion, and I hurried on before she could
thank me. The next day a young man, her
brother, called oa me at my hotel and de
manded an explanation. I explained. "Yon
duffer,' he said, that was only a daub of
face powder on her nose. He went off
laughing, and now he and I and the young
lady are good friends. But you can imag
ine how I felt over the mistake." Cincin
Economy on Loco motive a.
Itjs now generally admitted that what
ever be the balance between the advantages
of compound and simple locomotives tbe
former require considerably less water than
the latter. Advantage has been taken of
this fact on a trunk line whereconsiderable
difficulty has been experienced in keeping
the boilers in a state of good repair. Fines
are constantly leaking, and the life of the
boilers, on one division of the road In par
ticular, is very short, owing to excessive in
crustation?, though they are washed out
after every round trip. On investigation it
was found that the trouble was due largely
to the witter taken at a single station.
Since careful tests made with accurate me
ters and calculations based on indicator
cards show that the compound engines
work with insirly 40 per cent less water
than simple locomotives, it has been decid
ed to work the division in question wholly
with the former type.
It is expected that in this way it will be
unnecessary to use water from the place
where the supply is bail and so avoid its ef
fects on the ljoilers Should this expt-cta-tion
lie fulfilled, the compound principlc
will be the means of effecting a saving not
only in the amount of fuel and water used,
but also in the total cost of boiler repairs,
while owing to the time saved, which is
now spent in frequent washing, a smaller
number of engines will be needed. Xew
Dyspepsia of the Mouth.
Many people complain of red noses on
exposure tothe cold, with heat and tingling
of both the nose and upper checks, also of
heat und redness on taking hot food, soups
or drinks at dinner. Probably the cause is
bad circulation which in its turn is due to
indigestion, and it may tie the want of bri.sk
When the none or choiiks burn from eat
ing or cold air, they bhould be bathed frexJy
in very hot water, drying softly Jul dust
ing with fuller's earth or talo powder, wluth
is cooling. For indigestion 'aired the diet
and take a charcoal tablet before each meal
with a few drops of tincture of myrrh in
hot water after eating. The teeth should
be thoroughly brushed and the mouth
rinsed after each meal. This cleansing of
tbe mouth is of the greatest importance in
dyspepsia of any degree.
There is as much dyspepsia in the mouth
as in the rest of the alimentary canal, for
dyspepsia is really ferment, with corroding
effects on the live tissues of memhraneend
nerves. To correct acidity after eating, let
a bit of magnesia the size of a large pea dis
solve in tbe mouth and swallow it. The
acidity has everything to do with spoiling
complexion and temper. Exchange.

It is told of the queen of England that
when one of the little princesses dropped
her handkerchief for the lady-in-waiting to
pick up and restore to her she gave her a
severe rebuke. Again the little miss

who put her foot on the bi t of cam brie, with

Locating Gods In the Sandwich lalnd.
The Kanaka custom of locating gods and
goddesses in volcanoes, lagoons and qjiiet
inlets is favorable to the perpetuation of
Kahnnaism. For instance, in Pearl har

will have acoaling station (Kaahupahu), the
shark god Ewa has its home. Then again
at Kan la below the island of Kauai is the
abiding place of the shark god known as
Kuhaemona, while the volcanoes and ex

Mma Pele and her many assistant deities.

lic A Pullman Porter Taught a Leason.
For once in my life I saw the "lord of all
he surveys," the sleeping car porter, non
plused, and very badly at that. It was on
the Houston and Texas Central railroad.
'When at the little town of Richardson on
the upper end of the line, two Ladies board
ed the train and by some mistake were ush
ered into the Pullman car. My lord in the
brass buttons sallied up to them, and find
ing out the mistake that led to their being
in that car instead of the day coach began
to show off his majestic powers of inso
lence. He did not observe a gentleman who
had boarded the train at the same station,
and who stood quietly observing the scene
from the door of the car. This gentleman
now advanced, saying, "lie seated, ladies,
until wo reach the next town, when you
con easily enter the other car." Then,
beckoning to the conductor, he added,
"Stop the train, L .'" "Here, captain?"
afrked the conductor. "Yes: here."
There was a pull of the liellroje. the train
stopped, and the jxirter was gently assisted
out of the car. 1 hence on to the bald prairie,

this country studying your institutions,
says that she found a class of girls in "Wei.

Greek classics than the girls in our own
schools in Athens. I should say they must
be very good, then, for a great revival in
Greek classical study has taken place with
in a few years. The spoken language is
conforming more and more closely to clas
sical standards. Foreign words that have
crept into the language are being cast
aside. I noticed the increased purity of
the language when I returned to Greece
and met some of my university classmates.
They were following the classical Greek so
closely that 1 thought at first it was a joke
or an affectation, but I soon saw that the

The Cat Problem In New York.
The cat problem has been always a seri
ous one to the municipality of Xew York.
As the city has grown the cats have in
creased and -taken on a cosmopolitan and
bohe.mian air from the felines that chant
the Marseillaise and intermezzo around
Washington square and Wooster street to
the aristocratic pets of upper Fifth avenue.
How to control the natural increase and
the immigration has vexed the city griev
ously. Hapiiily the good Mrs. English,
who died the other day, has given a valua
ble suggestion. She set aside by will a
certain amount for the future maintenance
of her cats in Williamsburg.
People in Williamsburg like cats, and
there is no reason wuy cats should not, aft
er the first panels, be contented in Williams
burg. Of course it is not New York, and
there is always the annoyance of ferries to
contend against, and the east side is a little
malarial ut times. Uut even a treacherous
climate will not knock off more than two
of a cat's nine lives. Really Mrs. Knglish's
idea is a good one., and a deportation of cits
to Williumshurg may le recommended for
trial. New York World.

themselves attractive in the eyes of their

"What do I think of it It tuink it is
sound common sense. That's the kind of
thing to print for women's reading. Wom
en should be taught their duty if they do
not know it. I heartily agree with the sen
timent." "So do I. And I may add that a new
bonnet and gown would render me twice as
attractive in your eyes as I am now."

The Name of Easter. J'
The name Easter is derived, as some sup
pose, from Eostre, the title of a Saxon
deity whose feast was celebrated every
year in tbe spring about the same time as
the Christian festival, the name being re
tained when the character of the feast was
changed, or, as others suppose, from oster,
which signifies rising. If the latter propo
sition be correct, Easter is in name as well
s reality the feast of the resurrection.
