Sloops' Sails as Sign Boards. Letting nut advertising space on the sails of their sloops has become a new source of revenue to fishermen In the vicinity of Long Island sound, the New York Sun states. An ingenious fisherman who sensed the value of the great white sheet of his sloop, which sniled around the sound, passing hun dreds of persons on shore and In boats, was the first to offer his sail for rent.

CLOSE observers in the ranks of the medical profession have noted one very interesting fact concerning the Christmas season that It generally lias a good tonic effect upon their pa tients. In explanation of this the London Lancet sm.vs that since Christ mas lias come t be regarded as a time for good cheer, a universal feel ing of contentment and happiness Is engendered at this time of Joyous ness, routine is for a while relieved, a certain freshness Is given to the dally round, differences of opinion are sunk, and a charitable spirit prevails. Is It, by the way, hoping for too much, asks the Lancet, that the season of good fellowship should leave some lusting effect upon the manners and methods of all? It may not be easy to trace exactly why the sense of exhilaration and well-being conies with the advent of Christmas, for the psychological fac tors concerned are not simple. But tlio main point Is that the mental state does everybody good, and the iinnuul festivity Is Just as excellent an institution as the prescription of the physician which gives tone and vigor to the straggler in life's race. There Is no need nowadays, thanks to the good sense of the people and the coun sels of their medical advisers, to mor alize about the evils of a stupid In dulgence In food, alcohol and tobacco on a festive occasion such as the pres ent. 1'rnetleally everybody realizes the greut physiological advantages of be ing wise on a merry occasion. Many more persons than formerly I feel where use ends and abuse begins, . and they act sensibly accordingly; and so far from It being acrlme to make I the season festive by enjoying, on a . little extended scale '' perhaps, the i creature comforts of life, some de ; elded good is done to both the mental ii. d physical health of the individual The festive season ,niay, therefore, i be welcomed, which brings cheer to thousands, which Induces the generous and charitable to brace the mental and physical functions of the commu nity at large, gtvlny It the opportunity of relinquishing Its business and Its ; worries for a time, to start again re freshed and ready for "the trivial round, the common task."i The pre scription "A Merry Christnut" ' sound I so long as the "signature" of good ; sense Is' observed.
