How They Are Conveyed From the Sick to Persons at a Distance. It is sometimes quite difficult to de termine the extent to which the com municating particle can bo carried. It is probable that the air from a small pox hospital has given the disease to persons a mile distant. On the contra ry, scarlet fever has been brought into the ward of a full but well-aired hos pital and continued there a day with out a single person contracting tho disease. If we could be sure as to the secretions and all the skin separations from scarlet fever it would not be a very communicable disease; yet we have known a dress folded up at the bed of a dying patient and placed in a trunk, to convey the poison to a fami ly of children four miles distant, when the dress was unfolded in their pres ence three months afterward. Whoop ing-cough and diphtheria are proba bly never conveyed by the first case occurring, except by the breath or sputa of the patient. Measles, on the other hand, are communicated at much greater distances. In general, any one of this class of diseases having become epidemic, the communication to others is from houses and clothing far more than from persons. Difficult as it is to determine accurately all the facts as to the conveyance of these diseases, their transmissibility, their times of incep tion and the time of greatest risk of contagion, or when the patient ceases to be a risk to others, no subject is of more vital importance to communities. Dr. Vacher, the medical officer of Birkenhead, and Dr. Dukes, of Rugby, have given much attention to the sub ject and have classified a large number of cases as to the time from the first symptom to the beginning of eruption, the time from beginning of eruption to cessation of fever, and the time from beginning of eruption to when the pa tient ceases to be infective. They state the latter as follows: For small pox, 56 days; measles, 27 days; scarlet fever, 49 days; diphtheria, 28 days; mumps, 21 days; typhoid fever, 28 days. These will serve as general guides. In all cases where schools are con cerned the time of return should be guarded. It is to be remembered that more depends upon the cleanliness of the house and family and upon the garments worn than upon the person. It is often a question how far boards of health shall require reports of con tagious diseases. In any good system of sanitary government such report is required as to small-pox, scarlet fever, diphtheria, typhus fever, cholera, and as to measles when extensively epi demic. We think strict rules should be enforced upon physicians as to such report, but that they should be paid .therefor, inasmuch as such report is of special service, quite different from the certification of a death. The hab its of different countries and States differ much, but all agree that the re Iport should be made by some one. This is rendered more essential by re cent facts, which show that by early and strict isolation the common com municable diseases are often prevented from becoming epidemic. It is often a question how far attend ance at funerals should be prevented in cases of death from communicable diseases. We know of a recent case in which the attendance of children at a church funeral, the death having been caused by malignant diphtheria, prob ably led to a dozen deaths and many cases in a sparse country village. The exposure is far greater for children "than for adults, If all details as to the washing of the dead body, the dealing with clothing, the time of transfer to the coffin, the use of disinfectants, cpuld be carefully regulated, it is probable that the risk would be very little; but as we can not rely upon the carrying out of all these details, it is ' better to prohibit public funerals, and to announce cause of death in all cases of the more dangerous communicable diseases. Similar caution is needed as to the visits of friends upon those who are thus sick. While there is no need of such fear as will preclude assistance from older persons where there is need of help, there is no excuse f<# ex posing the young. With due precau tion as to airing garments, it is very rare that communicable diseases are carried to others by the casual visitor. We thus desire to caution all against unnecessary exposure, and to secure public opinion as an aid in preventing the spread of a class of diseases which counts so many victims.—N. T. Inde pendent. Auto-Inoculation of Boils. Those who are ever troubled with boils know as Job did, that it is com mon to have a crop of boils. This is doubtless due to impurities circulating in the blood; it is also supposed that it is possible to get a crop of boils from one by what is called auto-inocu lation. Which means that the dis ... charge from one boil if carried bj Ungers or dressings to a healthy por tion of the skin, may plant the seeds of another one. To avoid this auto inoculation it is well to use the precau tion of antisepsis, or in short to disin fect the emanations from the boil by frequent applications, both before and after it opens, of a solution of boric acid and absolute alcohol. This affords a pretty short means of preventing a repetition or increase of boils by auto inoculation, and where there is ten dency to recurrence in spite of such precaution, thorough constitutional treatment for the blood is certainly advisable.—Dr. Foote's Health Monthly. ^ ^ —The lap of Dame Nature is probably located in the Pyrenees— Pittsburgh Chronicle. SWINDLES OF WAITERS. How Gueat* at Cafe* and Hotels Are Vic timized and Deceived. Said a returned tourist to a reporter last evening: “I see it don’t take long for the waiters on this side of the wa ter to adopt European tactics when it is to their personal advantage.” “What, for instance?” “From long and not unsual experi ence in cafes in various parts of the world, 1 have adopted the custom of looking carefully over the itemized bill brought me for my meals and compar ing it with the prices on the bill of fare. That is what an itemized bill is for, and not simply to look like a washing list. The other night when dining rather liberally at one of the up town hotels, I remarked a discrep ancy as between the account presented and the change, returned from the bill I gave the waiter. “It was only fifty cents short, but I called the waiter’s attention to the fact. He seemed astonished and count ed the change twice, then, lifting the bill of items from the plate where it rested with the change, his features were spread with a satisfied smile as two quarters of a dollar appeared thereunder. His hilarity disappeared, though, when I told him that I had spent time and money enough in Paris to know that trick well, and always rewarded them there, as I proposed to do with him, by omitting his accus tomed fee.” “What is the trick?” queried the re porter. “Don’t you see that by hiding two or three coins under the list in that way when returning the change to a careless man who does not count his change, he would receive his tip and the hidden coin also, but when serv ing a more careful person, myself for instance, and a recount was called for, the missing coin could be found and no suspicion of dishonesty attach to the waiter, unless a fellow got tired of having the same old chestnut played too often. There are other tricks be side that for capturing the careless,” said the tourist. “One that is prac ticed in France, where gold louis and half louis are the most common coins in circulation, is when the waiter re ceives a louis he puts it between his teeth, or seems so to do. You see the gold right their in plain sight all the time, but he gives you change for a half louis only. “You immediately call his attention to the fact and remark that it was a louis you gave him. ‘But no, sir,’ he says, ‘see there,’ and takes the coin from between his teeth and behold it is only a half louis. You are puzzled, for you were confident that it came from the little spring case that a half louis would not fit, and can not ac count for it until you learn that he has had the half louis in his mouth wait ing for just such an occasion. The only safe way, therefore, is the moment you see your louis going toward his mouth, let the battle begin, and tell him to let it remain on the table until the change is given. That is not all, for in the supper rooms at the various cafes in Paris the number of the room is placed right over the column of figures and added in with the total amount. I sup pose if the room were not numbered they would add in the date; any thing, in fact, to make the amount bigger.”— N. Y. Telegram. AN OLD PUNISHMENT. The Introduction of Tarring and Feather* ing as a Torture. Philologists have long observed that mords that are popularly known as “Americanisms” are really good old English terms brought over by the pilgrim fathers, the early settlers on the James, etc., and retained here when forgotten in the country of their birth. Similarly, not a few Dutch words—boss, boodle, etc.—brought over by the early settlers of New Amsterdam, have spread from their original American habitat, till they have become part of our speech. It is not less interesting to note that cer tain customs, forgotten in their home land, but retained here, and, there fore, characterized as “American,” are really importations from Europe. Not one of these customs has been regarded as more distinctively “Yankee” than the venerable one of “tarring and feathering,” and yet we learn from the “Annales Rerum Anglicarum” of the venerable English historian, Hoveden (living in the thirteenth century and Court Chaplain to Henry III.) that the custom is at least as old as the time of Richard the Lion-hearted. He tells that Richard, on setting out on the third crusade, made sundry enact ments for the regulation of his fleet, me of which was that “A robber who shall be convicted of theft shall have his head cropped after the fashion of a champion, and boiling pitch shall be poured thereon, and the feathers of a cushion shall be shaken out on him, so that he may be known, and at the first land at which the ship shall touch he shall be set on shore.” Whether the custom was earlier than this we have no means of determining. It is at least close on to seven hundred years old.—American Notes and Queries. —Ada—“What was your first meal alone with your husband when you left for the honeymoon?” Elsie (aged sixteen)—“Oh, Charley, let me make it out. We had chocolate ice-cream, kisses, lemonade, blanc-mange, char lotte russe, strawberries, vanilla ice cream, coeoanut drops, Neapolitan ice-cream, wine jelly, bananas, raisins, tutti-frutti, milk punch, raspberries, floating island, and pistache ice cream.” Ada—“Any thing else?" Elsie (gloomily)—“Yes; a long ill aess.”—Time. FREAKS OF CONSCIENCE. An Instance When the Silent Monitor Caused a Thief to Repent. Constant readers of newspapers may have observed that a curious epidemic of conscience often follows the commis sion of a great crime. Men and even women hasten to accuse themselves of the particular offense which is excit ing public interest, or of similar crimes that have never come to light or have been forgotten. The polioe are often compeled to investigate confessions made under the influence of drink or of a morbid imagination. Not long ago a largo field in the neighborhood of London was dug up in the expectation of discovering the skeleton of a farmer who disappeared mysteriously thirty years before. A sailor declared he had murdered the missing man and buried him in a meadow. No remains were discovered, but the result of the investi gations made by the police led to the trial and conviction of the sailor for a murder committed by him a few weeks previous to his false confession. A thief is not often troubled by that silent monitor called conscience. There is, however, on record one instance in which either conscience or gratitude compeled a thief to make restitution. Charles Dickens, the novelist, when in France was robbed of his watch—a valuable gold repeater, presented to him by admirers who had caused their appreciation to be engraved upon the case. Dickens’ grief was short, for, on the following afternoon, he received the watch, and with it a polite note apologizing for any inconvenience that might have been caused by its tem porary withdrawal. The pickpocket had not recognized his victim as a fellow-countryman, and still less as the inimitable portrayer of Bill Sykes.— CassclPs Saturday Journal. THE JUNIOR’S RIGHT. How tho Youngest-Born is Always Fa voted hi Song and Story. The widerango of junior-right is ono of the most remarkable discoveries of recent anthropological science. The younger son inherited to the exclusion of all other collaterals. Fairy lore has seized upon this idea with avidity. Fairy favorites are, of course, always young and beautiful. Cinderella is the type of these fairy favorites. She is the youngest of the three sisters. The two elder girls are old and ugly, she is young and beautiful. They are cross and badly disposed, she is sweet-tem pered and gentle. The fairy god mother has no interest in the fortunes of the two elders, her cares are exclu sively served for Cinderella. Of course, the Prince falls in love with her, for how should the glass slipper fit any other than the fairy favorite? In tho “Arabian Nights” story of tho “Three Sisters” it was again the youngest whom the Sultan overheard express ing an ambition to become the Em peror’s queen-consort. The eldest sis ter had been content with the baker, the second with the cook, and when the youngest carries off the matri monial prize, the others use their ut most endeavors to make her feel the effects of their jealousy and malice. With beauty and the beast again, it is the youngest of the merchant’s daugh ters that plays the title role. But it is surely needless to multiply instances. Whenever a dens ex machina is needed to marvelously relieve a difficulty, tc do a deed of daring, or in any way to retrieve the family fortunes, it is the youngest child, male or female, that will probably prove itself the hero. -« • Living on the Reputation of Others. “Take everything that I have but my good name; leave me that and I am con tent.” So said the philosopher.

It’s in the soap department, in the basement, and the salary is only $1.75 a week. But my wife informed me this morning that she needed an other girl in her kitchen. If you would like that place she will give you four dollars a week and a good home. Which would you prefer?” “I’ll take the soap-lady position, sir,” was the haughty reply. —It was getting late when the girl said shyly: “You look worried about something, Mr. Harkinton.” “I am,” he replied. “I have in ray pocket a fifty thousand dollar package of Gov ernment bonds which I foolishly forgot to deposit to-day, and—and aside from that I—I love you so devotedly. Miss Scliermerhorn, I am afraid to learn my fate.” “As for the bonds, Mr. Harkin ton,” replied the girl with a business air, “papa has a safe in the house; and regarding the—the other matter, why, I think so many of us are apt to borrow trouble, Mr. Harkinton.”—N.

A HUNDRED YEARS A HERO. How Seth Warner Won a Wife and Be came Famous. Colonel Seth Warner, of Vermont, the famous hero of tho Revolutionary war, was a leading fighter for the Hampshire grants. These titles were disputed by the State of New York, and its authorities obtained an edict of the King of England in their favor. The settlers were stung by the sup posed injustice. This state of things brought Colonel Seth Warner to the front. With Ethan Allen and others he actively opposed every effort of tho New York .State authorities to enforce possession, and final ly he, with Allen and others, were outlawed and a price put on their heads 1 To circumvent New York, it was neces sary that some one should go into that state and gain required information. Col. War ner, assuming for safety the name of “Dr. Howard,” undertook this perilous and ro mantic journey. While on his way homo he stopped at a country inn, where an old gentleman and daughter were storm-bound. The father fell ill and the daughter called upon Col. Warner, who, with his wide knowledge of simple remedies, successfully treated the “old man,” and ho finally won this devoted woman for a wife. Such incidents were not uncommon in those years. When the doctor was not easily reached, months of sickness, and even life were often saved by some unpro fessional friend versed in the use of simple herbs and roots. Tho health of early set tlers and tlieir powers of endurance con vince us that such medicines did only good and left no poison in the blood to work as much injury to tho system as would tho dis ease itself. In time of peace tho Colonel was in con stant demand for his knowledge of simple remedies and their power over disease. But it was left to another of his name of the present age to give to the public what was then used with such positive success. Warner for over a hundred years has shared with Ethan Allen the admiration of the American people. Colonel Seth Warner belongs t# a family of wido distinction; no less than eight members thereof won fame in the regular practice of medicine. Looking to the adoption by the people of this generation of the old time simplo rem edies, his direct descendant, H. H. Warner, the well-known proprietor of 'Warner’s safe cure, for many years has been experi menting with old time roots and herbs formulae and, his search having been finally rewarded with success, he gives the World the result. These recipes and formulae in other days accomplished great things be cause they were purely vegetable and combined simply so as to cure the disease indicated, without injury to the system. In harmony with their old timo character, we learn that he proposes to call them Warner’s Log Cabin remedies, using as a trade-mark an old-fashioned American log cabin. Wo understand that he intends to put forth a “sarsaparilla,” for tho blood, the sarsaparilla itself being but one of a number of simple and effective elements; “Log Cabin hops and buchu,” a general stomach tonic and invigorator: “Log Cabin cough and consumption remedy,” “ Warner’s Log Cabin hair tonic;” a prep aration for that universal disease catarrh, called “Log Cabin rose cream;” “Warner’s Log Cabin plasters;” and “Warner’s Log Cabin liver pills,” which are to be used in connection with other remedies, or in dependently as required. Warner’s safe remediesare already stand ards of the most pronounced scientific value in all parts of the world, and wo have no doubt the Log Cabin remedies, for the diseases they are intended to cure, will be of equal merit, for Mr. Warner has tho rep utation of connecting his name with no preparation that is not meritorious.

It is, also, a matter of wide information that the Bitters cures biliousness, dyspepsia, debility and rheumatism. Ix is best not to dispute where there is no probabilities of convincing.

A great mistake perhaps wms made when Dr. Sherman named his great remedy Prickly Ash Bitters; but it is presumed that at that time all remedies for the blood, etc., were called Bitters. Had he called it Prickly Ash “Regulator,” “Curative,” or almost anything but Itittcrs, it undoubtedly would have superseded all other prepara tions of similar character. The name Bit ters is misleading; it is purely a medicine, and can not be used as a beverage. Where you can not climb over, you must creep under.
