In 'a paper recently read before the
French Academy of Sciences, Prof
Fort gave some startling instances of
the iflicacy of artificial respiration. A
three year-old chilid had apparently
died, and was conialdered as having
passed over to the majority for three
and a hlif hours. At the end of that
time Prof. Fort set up artificial res
piration and kept up the process for
tour hours, when the child returned to
life. A person had been under water
for 10 niinute, and was evidently
drowned. Dr. Fournol, of Billancourt,
however, after four hours of labor,
managed to mako natural sucoced arti
ficial breathing, and so reaninated his
patient. In some instances artificial
respiration will be found of great eill
oacy in removing poisoi from the
lungs and glands. In any c-se of as
phyxia hope should not be abandoned
until hours of trial ot'artitielal respira
tion gives no encouraging iesult.

no expense in these cards--they are
simply little art gems. Our only aim
has been to publish the fnest card yet

come in so rapidly that nearly the

to adopt the.following plan for the dis

of the gilt Shakspeare cards, seven in
the series, will be sent excepting upon
the receipt of a statement from a grocer
that the person applying for the eards
has bought of him on that day at least
seven bars of Dobbins' Electrio Soap,
with price paid for same. Al apply
ing in this manner will receive the Iull
set of seven cards grate by mail. This
will insure us that our friends and pa
trons get their share of these beautiful
designs, although it In np manner re
pays us for the cost of the cards. Your
grocer has the soap or will get It, and
