ES AIR AND FOOD.
E BLACK FOREST SURE CURE FOR CONSUMPTION. M i3edeines. No Inocualation, We qgeMdlisa-Simply Pure Air Day sad _ $gbt, aornm.os Meals, Carefully e. lated Exercise and Rest. There is an interesting article in The Nineteenth Century in which Mr. J. A. Gibson tells how he was cured of consumption. Mr. Gibson found himh self, at the age of 98, suffering from acute phthisis. His case was pronounced to be desperate by the doctors. He weighed only 9 stone 7 pounds, and the disease had such a hold upon him that he never expected to recover. However, he went off into the country, as the doctork advised, and after three months of complete rest and a diet of more than half a gallon of milk a day he had put on a few pounds' weight. Then a friend urged him to go to Nordrach in the Black forest and place himself un der Dr. Walther. He did so, and in four months he came back to England in a state of bar baric health, weighing 129 stone and with a chest measurement to correspond. What was this magical treatment of Dr. Walther? Nourishment, rest and fresh air-no medicines, no inoculation, no coddling, but simply open windows day and night, enormous meals and careful ly regulated exercise and rest. It sounds an easy cure, and it began to take effect instantaneously in Mr. Gibson's case. The first thing was to gain in weight, and with this object in view Dr. Walther fairly crammed his patient. Mr. Gibson gained in weight. Everybody else gained in weight. There was a competition as to who should gain most, and people ate for dear life. with an eye on the scale. "We used to say among ourselves," writes Mr. Gibson, "that we had to eat three times the ordinary amount of food -one portion to replace natural waste, a second portion to replace the extra waste from the disease and a third por tion to put on weight so that the system might be strengthened and finally get the better of the disease. " Everybody had to lie down for an hour before meals. To bed at 9 and up at 7; break fast at 8, dinner at 1., supper at 7-this was the day's routine, with a walk at a snail's pace. From the moment of arrival until leaving Nordrach the patient never breathes one breath of any but the purest air. as Nordrach is in the Black forest, at an elevation of 1,500 feet, ,surrounded by trees, and a long way from a town or even a village. The casement windows of the sanitarium are kept wide open day and night, summer .and winter, and in some instances the windows are taken completely out of the frames. Thus it is practically an outdoor life -the patient lives continuously. There is therefore no danger of chills on going •-out in any kind of weather or at any hour, as the temperature within and without is equal. So pleasant does this living in the open become and so hardy is the patient made and so invigorated that on his return to this country it is the greatest misery for him to have to remain in a room with closed windows. Being at such a considerable height -1,500 feet, with a rise in the longer walks of another 1,500 feet-the pa tient, to get the same' amount of oxygen into the system, must breathe relative ly more of the rarefied air and thus ex pand the lungs. In this way the lungs are completely flooded with pure air. All the odd corners and crannies, which he has hardly used for years, are venti lated, which the easy walking up hill is eminently calculated to effect, while at the same time the almost absolute rest the patient enjoys allows the lungs to be practically undisturbed, and so per mits the healing process to proceed. The climate is much the same as in England. There is quite as high a rain fall, and in winter it is much colder. But it has been demonstrated beyond a doubt that climate has absolutely noth ing to do with the case. There the patients, who go out regu larly day after day in all kinds of weather, sometimes walk for hours at a time in the rain without ever thinking of changing their wet Clothes afterward. This course Mr. Gibson still adopts and finds that such a wetting-sometimes twice in one day-never does him any harm whatever. He asked Dr. Walther if he thought his system could be carried on with hope of success in this country. He said that it could be worked here quite as well as at Nordrach, or as in the balmiest clime; that all that was required was a place where pure air was to be had, sit uated well away from a town, at a fair elevation, and the man to see that the system was properly carried out. Mr. Gibson is now convinced that this is perfectly true. Absolutely nothing else is needed. Freedom from wind, a high average of sunshine, dry climate and all such other things as are generally supposed to be so necessary go for nothing. And this is the crux of the whole matter. It is possible to cure here, on the spot. al most all the people of this country who are ill of phthisis. Why, then, are sani tariums not erected at once to cure the lnadreds of thousands of those who are I'll and who have not the means to go woad-hundreds of thousands who are Ac certainly doomed to death as if they wire already under the sod if some mteps benot at once takent Itis ato (hak that all these people must -jihk they might easily be saved. wome ph wa****** 1dl e aL h dear, sad that sp pro ew dreses In the O , Pu-Phe~ Ambep b S, ~tr"s-li "'The Seat Laid Plasm." "When I was a young fellow, I was a dreamer," said a benevolent citizen. "I thought that my greatest pleasure would be to give money to the poor and live a life of simple, unworldly devo tion and gentleness. That was when I Was about 20. "At 25 I came into some money rath er unexpectedly. The first thing I did was to give a dinner. I got tipsy-the first time in my life. I had a fight with a waiter and nearly punched his eye out. I was arrested and had to be bailed out by my lawyer. The waiter sued me for damages, and I was so angry with him and myself and the downfall of my great ideals that I refused to compro mise as my lawyer advised. The waiter lost most of his savings in fees and ex penses, and his family came wailing to ask me to pay his doctor's bills and help him get a position and they would drop the suit.. "I came to my senses and did more than that for them. My old ideas, modi fied and modernized, took hold of me again, and'while I am a hard headed business man today most of my friends are poor people. But my first use of money shows how flimsy the pedestals of most ideals are and how foolish it is to say what we would do if we could. " -New York Commercial Advertiser. He Told the Lawyer. Lawyer S. is well known for his un comely habits. He cuts his hair about four times a year and the rest of the time looks decidedly ragged about the ears. He was making a witness describe a barn which figured in his last case. "How long had the barn been built?" "Oh, I don't know. About a year mebby. About nine months p'r'aps." "But just how long? Tell the jury how long it had been built." "Well, I don't know exactly. Quite a while." "Now, Mr. B., you pass for an intel ligent farmer, and yet you can't tell me how old this barn is, and you have lived on the next farm for ten years. Can you tell me how old your own barn is? Come now, tell us how old your own house is, if you think you know." Quick as lightning the old farmer re plied: "You want to know how old my house is, do ye? Well, it's just about as old as.you be and needs the roof seeing to about as bad. " In the roar that followed the witness stepped down. and Lawyer S. didn't call him back. -London Globe. "'Ark, the 'Erald Angels Sing." Two turns brought me from the crowded highway along which cab and omnibus were speeding toward Lon don's center of attraction to the quiet street in which fire and food awaited me. As I made the second turn I saw, through the murk of a mid-December evening, three -figures pressed close against the area railings-surely thy own area railings. And through the murk came in a treble bawl the sound of "Peace on earth, good 'ill ter mel.." The area door opened with a clatter. "Now, then, be off with yerl I'd smack yer 'eds if I could get near yer. Makin that noise! Now, then!" "Garn! Want yer airy window broke?" said the biggest of the trio, pulling himself up by the railings and resting his chin between the spikes. As I entered at the gate they scurried away in fear and trembling, and cook, distracted, slammed the area door. A minute later a want of discord came down the street: " 'Ark, the 'erald angels sing." -Academy. Where Coleridge Was Wanting. Coleridge has a lamentable want of voluntary power. If he is excited by a remark in company he will pour forth in an evening, without apparent effort, what would furnish matter for a hun dred essays. But the, moment that he is to write not from present impulse but from preordained deliberation his pow ers fail him, and I believe that there are times when he could not pen the commonest notes. He is one of those minds who, except in inspired moods, can do nothing, and his inspirations are all oral and not scriptural.

The largest bridge in existence is not, as one would imagine, the work of some famous English or French engineer. 'his bridge, comparatively little known,. was constructed long ago, in China, in the reign of the Emperor Keing Long. It is situated near to Sangang and the Yellow sea. and measures not less than eight miles and a half. The Bridge of Lions, as it is called, is supported by 800 immense arches and its foundation is 21 'meters under wa ter. On each pile of this wonderful bridge is a marble statue of a lion, three times larger than life size. The coup d'eeil of these 300 enormous lions, each one supporting an arch, is stupendous in its magnificance. A New Commodity.

The churches were open. of course. and there, were two servfct in every one, and in some there ~w r. three; also the responsible and re.speaot able citizen took his family to chai .:h as a matter of course. He made his apprentices go to charc .i is well and demanded the text wh i t they came houme as a proof of asu z.,. ance. Alas, he little knew that t;:. boys were larking all the morning. ~,dl when the congregation came our stop ped the old women and got the teat from them I However, those who went elsewhere formed the majority. The fields round the town were filled with companies of men, called rural societies, ,who ram bled about all the morning and dined together at a tavern. The high consta bles went their rounds among the vil lages pretending to prevent profanation of the day, but they were squared by the publicans. Informers were about threatening publicans, barbers and greengrocers for carrying on Lrade on the Sunday morn ing unless they paid a little blackmail. A shilling was understood to meet th. case. Barbers sent their apprentices on Sunday morning to shave the prisoners in the Fleet for nothing. so that they might get practice. Children were baptized after after noon service, and a supper was given afterward to celebrate the occasion. At this supper the nurse, it was allowed. could blamelessly get drunk. The beadles of churches were bribed by beggars to let them sit on the steps and ask charity of the congregation coming out. It was the best business of the week. The rails before the house of gentlemen were crowded with beg gars. When the ladies got home after church, they did not disdain to slap their servant if dinner was delayed. The fields between the Tottenham court road and the Foundling hospital were the resort of the sporting fraternity. who were assembled to enjoy the inno cent diversions of duck hunting and cat hunting. with prizefighting, quar terstaff, wrestling and other sports. The pleasure gardens were open all day long. People crowded to them in the early morning for breakfast and staid all day. At 2 there was an ordi nary, in the afternoon and evening an organ recital: there was tea in the al coves, and in the evening there was supper. In the evening, when they reluctant ly came away. with as much punch as they could hold,, they formed them selves into bands for purposes of pro tection, while the footpads looked out on the road for single passengers, or. haply, drunken passengers, whom it was easy and a pleasure to rob. And this was the way of a Sunday in June or July, 1760.--London Queen JAMES COULDN'T IMAGINE. A Story That a New York Clubwoman Tells About Herse f. Here is a good story which a clubwo man tells about herself. "At one time.' she says. "we had a colored butler who staid with us for years, and who admired my husband immensely. He thought that Dr. H. was a marvel of manly beauty, as well as the embodiment of all the virtues. domestic. professional and otherwise. Of course I quite agreed with the but ler on this point, but the fact is I some times pined to have him pass his en thusiastic compliments around to the family and not bestow them all on the doctor. Sc one morning, when Dr. H. had just left the breakfast table and was even then to be seen, an imposing picture. as he stood on the front steps drawing on his gloves. I remarked to James " "'Dr. H. is a handsome man, isn't he 4' " 'Yes. ma'am. 'Deed an he is. ma'am ' with gratifying enthusiasm. "Then, hoping to get a rise from James, I added with an absentminded air, as if I scarcely knew what I said, but was just uttering my inmost thoughts: " 'Hcw in the world do you suppose that such a handsome man as Dr. H. ever happened to marry such a homely woman as I am 4' "Well, James just stopped short and rolled his eyes and shook his head as if he gave it up. Then he ejaculated: " 'Heaven knows, ma'am I' "-New York Sun. Light From Sugasr. A phenomenon, the cause of which has not yet been satisfactorily explain ed, was described at a meeting of the British association. Disks of loaf sugar were mounted on a lathe and rapidly rotated while a hammer played lightly against them. An almost continuous radiation of light was thus produced from the sugar. It was shown that the tight did not arise from heating of the sugar, and it is believed to be caused by some change taking place in the sugar crystals. The act of crystalliza tion is known to be sometimes accom panied by flashes of light.

My reasons for advocating such princi ples are founded on the experiences of all modern phthisio-therapeutists. who have demonstrated that the hygienic and dietetic treatment in special sani tariums is feasible and successful in nearly all climates. I know from personal observation that cures of pulmonary tuberculosis effected in our ordinary home climates, which are on the average not considered as especially favorable to this class of sufferers, have been more lasting and more 'assured than cures obtained in more genial climes.
