A Cure for Diphtheria.
Correspondent of the Baltimore

dent strain: The following is said
to be-an almost certain cure for
that terible scourge, 'diphtheria.'
Tf it should save some dear child,
or even one of larger growth and
more mature years, I shall be more
than " compensated for the little
trouble to which I have been sub
jedted in preparing it for the your
Should you or any of your fam
ily be attapked with diptheria, be
not alarmed, as it easily and speed
ily cured withont a doctor. When
it was raging in England, I accom
panied Doctor Field on his rounds
to witness the so called "wonder
ful cures" he perfomed, while the
patients of .others were dropping
on all sides. The remedy to be
rapid nust be simple. All ie took
with him was powder of F1111)11111
and a quill, and with these he cur
ed ever'y patient without (eet
ion. He put a spoonful of flour of
brimstone into a wine glass full of
water, and stirred it witl his fin
ger instead of a spoon, as the sul
phur does not readily amalgamate
with water. When the sulphur
Mixed be gave it as a garole and
in ten minutes the patient was out
of danger. Brimstone kills every
specie of fungus in n11n, b enst and
plant in a few minutes. In ex
treme cascs, il which he lad been
Oalled just inl the nick of ti.e0,
when the fungus was too nearlyV
closed to allow the gargling, he
)leW the -sulphur through ajuilI
in1t( the throat, and after the fun
gus had shrank to allow of ittlhen
the gargling. -He tiever I'mt a

canit o argle. take a live coal, put
it onl a sho0vel anld thlen aSprinikle a.
spoonful or two of lour of, brim
stone at a time uipon it, let the

will (lie. If plentifully use(d tie
whole room ia v be filled to suffo
cation: the patient can walk about
in it, in' - lin the fumes, with
doors andn windows shut.. 'I'h
mode of fumigating a room with
sulphur has often' cured most vio
lent attacks of colds in the head,
chest, etc., at any time, and is re
commendedl in cases of consumpI
tion andi asthima."

AUOUND-A suOut, able bodied la
dy was aroused the other night by
a nolbetin the liallway; anb on go
ing down retairs she discovered a
man fumbling ar'ound in~ the dark.
The lady immediately assailed him
with the ferosity ofa tigress and
ejected him from the house in quite
a number of seconds less than no
time at all. As the man tumbled
down the steps onto the sidewalk
he was gobbled up b~y a pl)Oiceman
and promptly marched off to the
cooler. -iThie next morning several
of her friends called aud congrat
ulated her upon the heroism dis
played in throwing a full grown
burglar out of the house. "Grac

pale and agitated ; "was that a
burglar ?" "WXVhy, c di'tL you k no w
