The little muscles which closo the Jaw tire acted upon by the cold In such n way that" they pull the Jaw up nntl then let It full by Its own weight. This, repented many times, causes the teeth to click together and produce what we know ns "chattering." We think of It In connection with our teeth because It is the teeth which make the sound, but the cause '.ies In the muscles which' we use In chewing or In opening our mouth when we hpeak. The chattering occurs In spite of the will or hrnln. We have little control over It, and can stop It only by clench ing Iho teeth. It Is rcnlly a mild va riety of spasm caused by the cold, which acts on the jaw muscles In much the same way that some poisons pro duce muscular spasms which cannot be controlled.

I IN BEHALF OF DISABLED MEN "Gas" Given Off Causes Smarting and the Organ Hastens to Take Relief Measures. The "gas" given oft by n freshly peeled onion makes Itself apparent In two ways by a strong aroma which Is at once apparent to the sense of smell, and by a" smarting of the eye halls, which, being very sensitive, aro hurt by this substance to which they, are not accustomed. The nerves of the eye immediately signal the hrnln to turn on the tears or liquid which' Is secreted by the body us a natural eye-wash. This, flowing over the eyeball, forms n curtain which prevents the onion "gas" from coming In direct contact with the nerves und thus Injuring them. Tears aro present In the eye at nil times. When we wink, u tiny drop of the tcnr-llnuld Is smeared across the ball of the eye and washes off pnr tlcles of dust which may have accum ulated. But when this liquid Is pro duced so rapidly that It cannot hb carried off by the trough at the lower part of the eye, the tears overflow and run down the face. Not for Him.
