Tor Health, Not l or Frint.
Senator Tillmau's physicians attrib

trip to Europe last summer, involving
a complete change and rest for sev

opinions of his own, is convinced that I
physical culture stunts have done the
work, We are sure, however, that
both the physicians and the patient
a London doctor has made and an
nounced the discovery that swearing
is helpful to health. According to
this n.ore or less eminent authority,
when a man is moved to angerv-nnd
auger precedes profanity?~he produ
ces a surplus of physical energy and
subjects his brain to n severe strain.
By way of relief he may kick or jump
up and down or smash things gen
erally, but for a cheap and convenient
remedy profanity is recommended on
the principal that when greatly Irri
tated even birds and animals express
their emotions volubly and violently.
It is clear, therefore, that our senior
senator's proficiency in this art has
been chiefly instrumental in relieving
him of the physical and mental strain
which at one time threatened his
health. Mis ability to swear pro
fusely and picturesquely has had a
tremendous practical value in pre
serving and prolonging his life.
a few days ago an interview was
published in The Record from Sena
tor Tlllman, said interview abounding
in swear words. Ti e language was
characteristic. The senator has a
way of repudiating interviews, and
even repudiating reports of his
speeches, but we are glad to say that
the senator has not repudiated even
a portion e>f tins Interesting story
published in The Record. We feel,
howevt r, that i: is only .lust to the
st n;.tor to say that while lie has found
cussing beneficial to his health, he is
not in the habit ol swearing for pub
lication, and while we are not in
formed that the senator would deny
anything in the interview referred to.
