Since I have siken in defen.se of the
dog. let mo say something more with
relation to that other favorite household
companion of man the cat. I would
call - yon attention to the fact that the
cat is a teast far more useful to mankind
than the dog. Without the latter we
could pet along, but if we had no cats
we should have a continual plague of
rats and mice, which would overrun the
cities and devour the crops and smal!
live stocl: of the farmers.
At the Shii'.e time you may set it down
an indisj ntal.le truth that the domestic
cat is a i rolifie source of a great variety
of diseases. It breeds them and dis
seminates them skin troubles partic
ularly. !t c ;mis about with it the con
tagion ol diphtheria, one of the most fa
tal of hi.in::;i complaints, and it is seri
ously su-ipect'.'d of helping to sow the
gt rmsoi consumption. A trouble akin
to ringw u-;:i which attacks the scalp and
causes ti e hair to fall out is frequently
conveyed by cats. Likewise it is with
scarlet .'evtr. which, when it is in a
house, is ahv.tys likely to be scattered
abroad y the pet pussies of the estab
lishment. The w ly of it is this: When there is
sickness i:i a house, old cloths an apt to
be used "or v.irious purposes. These are
commonly thrown ufterward into some
out of tl e way place, like the corner of
a closet. Suppose that there is a tabby
about that is o:i the point of bringing
into the world a litter of kittens. Fe
male cats are constantly having kittens,
as you know, being among the most pro
lific of a.iiuiai.s. She searches for a se
quesprel nook for her accouchement
and is l.kely to make her bed of ju.-t
such a lot t old rags as I havedescribt d.
As a l.atural consequence, not only is
the mother cat infected as to her fur
with tii cont.ig: js disease, but all of
In r kit ti ns are l.kewise. The latter are
f.ndled by the children. Pathogenic
germs seem to lind a most favorable
breeding; ground in the hair of cats. As
a result the complaint is spread. Un
fortunately the infection is not limited
to the h. u. e. It it spread abroad by the
ciits, w itch ;.re notorious stragglers.

And the Red Nosed Man Went on to Tell

It's all humbug, this talk about rat
tlesnakes being so deadly poison," Baid
a red faced man in the smoking car.

"My bed wars never any more than big
enough forlne cud the easy conscience I
always slept with, but I'vewoko up
more times than I've got lingers and
toes and found that two or three rattle
snakes had managed to lind room with
us. They were plenty, I tell you. out
where I live. Eat deadly? Pooh! Why,
I've known scores and Boores of people to
be socked, and socked deep, by rattlers,
and I never knew of but one instance
where a rattler's bite was fatal; never
but once out of more cases than there's
jiiinpies on a goose.
"Bill Bulger was the man that was
bit that time a great, big, rough 6cnff
of a log chopper that didn't look as if a
whole den of rattlers could raise as much
as a flea bite on him. But he went to
teasing a big buck rattlesnake that had
come down to camp to look around me
day, and the snake just threw his upper
teeth against Bill a couple of times, and
every drop of poison he had he emptied
into Bill's wrist. Holler? Great joes
wax, how Bill did holler! We grabbed
him and hustled him over to the Pig's
Ear shebang on t'other side of tho camp
and began to decant rum into him, and
it wasn't long Wfore Bill looked as if ha
was glad he was bit.
"Everybody said he'd die, though, sure
pop, because that buck rattler must have
unloaded into Jim close on to three fin
gers of the best poison he ha.l. Conse
quently folks were surprised more than
you can think when they got around
nest morning and found Bill on deck as
chipper as a red squirrel and touud as a
white oak knot ."
"What!" exclaimed tho nir.n in the
next seat. "I thought you s;.id that bite
"It was. sir," replied the red faced
man. "Bill got blind, crazy drunk on

Cosmetic Among the Romans.
All that had been previously done in
Iho way i f facir.1 decoration was left far
m the thaue by the :;uci nt Romans.
! All the Latin writers Listoiiaiis, pin ts,
; naturalists and others mention it iu
one way or another. It was the practice
of Roman actors, as it has been of those
of the profession since the theater has
existed. Many of the emperors used
paint more or less freely. lieliogabalus,
one of the most eccentric, when he en
tered Rome for the first time, had his
eyelashes painted black and his cheeks
red and white. In the time of Augustus
the custom was universal among women
of fashion, details of which are given by
Horace, Catullus, Tibullus, Ovid, Pro
pertius and the rest. Martial speaks of
tno chalk of I abulia that fears the rain,
and the wax of Sabella that fears the
Horace mentions red lead and carmine
as among the articles employed. Ju
venal ia one of his satires describes a
paste that covers the faces of wives and
adheres with tenacity to the faces of hus
bands. Coquettes, according to Horace,
used a paste prepared from beans, much
like that used by some modern French
women, and were also given to the use
of cummin. Mandragora is mentioned by
Pliny, and popiies by Ovid. San Fran
A Powerful Antiseptic.
Extensive researches made upon cor
rosive sublimate by Dr. McClintock of
London show though the substance is not
a valuable germicide germs withstand
ing its action for 6ome time it proves
to possess, of all Eubstances, the greatest
antiseptic power, so that a germ treated
with the article, unless perchance it gets
into the blood or is exposed to very ex
ceptional conditions, is powerless to
grow that is, it is probable that a spore
of subtilis or anthrax treated with subli
mate, 1 in 1,000, and then thrown on the
soil or into water, will not germinate,
owing to the fact that the capsule of
sublimate surrounding it is not removed.
It is found that corrosive sublimate
forms with cellulose, as cloth, filter pa
per, etc., with silk, with albuminous
bodies, with some part of bacteria, prob
ably the envelope, a chemical compound
that cannot be removed with any amount
of washing in water. Thus sublimato
when acting ou a germ forms a capsulo
around it that protects the germ for a
time from the further action of the sub
limate and in turn onus an impeuetra-
j unless removed. This barrier may bere-
moveu witn sanues.

HE THAT WORKS EASILY, WORKS
SUCCESSFULLY." CLEAN HOUSE WITH
Artificial miniature auroras of the bo
reilis variety have been produced by
both De la Rive, the French savant, and
Lenstrom, the Swedish astronomer. Iu
Professor Lenstrom's experiments, which
were made in Finland, the peak of a high
mountain was surrounded with a coil of
wire, pointed at intervals with tin nibs.
The wire was then charged with elec
tricity, whereupon a brilliant aurora ap
peared above the mountain in which
spectroscopic analysis revealed the
greenish yellow rays so characteristic in
nature's display of "northern lights."
Oar Other Self.
Each of us has two selves, the higher
and the lower. When God seems out of
reach, as is often the case, and our pray
ers return to us heavier and sadder than
when they left our lips, it is a good
plan to commune with that alter ego
which is a shade nearer the divine, that
part which longs to help and to over-,
come, but is held down by the infirmi-i
ties of the lower nature. Ask it fori
strength and instruction, and by so do-!
ing help the whole man. God is so often
beautifully found in such ways. Ameri
