Jen ty I.ind's Temper.
A Boston woman, whose name is not
printed, is re;ortedto have taken sing
ing lessons of Jenny Lind a good many
years ago and to have fonnd the Swedish
nightingale a great scold. Her temper
at this time was such that she would
often fly into a great rage, and her hus
band would h ive to entice her out of the
room to soot le her, after which she
would come b ick with affability drawn
over her wrath so opx'ressivo in her
courtesy that the student hardly dared
to breathe for fear of starring her off
The Americ in confessed that she spent
more of her ".esson hours crying than
singing, and added: "Her reprimands
were often pei sonal. She would look at
me an,l ejacnl.ite, Oh, you look so ugly
when yon singf It was impossible to re

her into a new rage." Mahogany Tree.
Drinking the Health.
Drinking on ?'s health is the custom the
world over, and the toasts of all nations
are practically the same. The "a votre
sante" of the Frenchman is the same to
all intents and purjioses as the "alia sa
lute" of the Its lian and the "Your good
health" of the American. Dnt in the
United States -.ve have innumerable ex
pressions of g oil will over the cups
such, for instance, a9 "My regards,"
which is easttrn; "Here's how," which
is western; "I look to des you, sir."
which is south ra. or "Here's my pions,"
meaning "my pious regards." Other
Americanisms are "Good luck," "I'm
looking at yen," "Here's your eye."
"Till we meet again," "Happy days,"
"May your shadow never grow less," etc.

against the prime minister I was able to

Increanin; Club Membership.
Members of n New York club are a
little shocked at receiving from the club
authorities a circular asking everybody
to do what he '-an to increase the club
membership. This wholesale method of
soliciting members is esteemed unwise,

advertising for new members, a thing oc
casionally resorted to by the proprietary
clubs of Londoc. Such an advertisement
now running in a London politico liter
ary weekly is esiecially addressed to

Is it Gradually Growing Duller?
Catarrh Causes it Stop
Mr. Peterson's case illustrates the
danger of allowing these troubles to
run on, and should be carefully read
A very large per cent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the !eott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca
tarrhal extension. It is folly to wait
for a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't get well, but always
gets worse, until frequently the hear
ing is entirely destroyed. A thor
ough course of treatment with a ca
pable specialist, who goes right at
tin cause of the trouble and removes
it. is the only hope.
Dr. Wilson and his medical asso
ciates cure all cases of deafness
caused by catarrh.
