In remaining, and after going home, la a short

In a note addressed to the President of the
New York Hoard ot Health on Wednesday,
Dr. Harrls.the registrar and corresponding
secretary of th board, suggest the following
brief precautions against sun-strokes t
1. when exposed to exceaalreheat the nat
ural perspiration or sweating must not bo
checked. Iet the sweat flow, nnd do not
throw off all the flannel garments.
2 Wash the head and neck frequently lu
cold water, and If exposed In the sun or In any
very hot place, wear upon thetopoftheheau,
under a hat or otherwise, a light handkerchief
orother thlii foli.a of elath wet with cold water.
lirmember that tho head and neck must be
kept cool asd also oe free, from tne pressure pi
tight clothing.
3. If headache, dizziness, a feeling of tlffht
nets across tb forehead, a falling of sight or
a feeling of weakness and prostrallon (giving
out) occurs, let the person immediately go tu
a cool place And lie down with the back and
the feel covered, and have a few (.uartiof cold
water poured slowly upon the head and sides
of the neok. If the it nip toot are not at once
relieved send Atone for the nearest physician
4. What to do until the physician comes If
th patient Is still sweating,)! him drink
freely of cold black tea or coffeei tea Is btst.
Hut If sweating has eeased, there Is very grout
danger. Then the head, face, neck and entire
chest should be rapidly sponged with icewtter
and a bag of powdered Ice, well covered with
a towel, should be kept under the head and the
back of thanecki give a mixture ot the car
bonate of ammonia (hartshorn) and muriate f
ammonia, eight or ten grains each In water,
every ten or lift een minutes until thephyslclsn
comes, or until the patient rallies and aweafs.

are over-worked nnd underfed, and who use
Intoxicating drink, sutler greatlv. Instead of
Intoxicating drink and the habit of nioriilpr
and evening drams, let good Mack tea and
colfee. and good nourishing and well cooked
food be regularly taken, llathe the whole
body early In the morning In order lo have a
clean skin and good natural sweating during
the day. laborers and others who have much
to do should rise so eirly that they cau have
several rests and keep In the shade from 11 till
4 In these very hot dayst and let thla most lb
portent fact be remembered, namely, that by

Mr. Duller, of MajjAohuietts, opposed Any

teen different kinds of United States secarl
tits, and th great nnmber creates too much
embarrassment He believed that on long
dohu womoi bb mass ooopioie to tne ereui
tort of tbe Government. What th peopJ
wanted was a permanent Investment at a Jew
rat of Interest, with nn Assurance that the
Interest would be regularly paid.
rar. elevens, ei rannayjraniA, was in lavor
of A funding bill of some kind. If no one
cboie to fund under It, no harm would b
donei and, If any on ehoos to take the new
bonds At a reduced rate of InUrsst, tb coun
try would b benefited. But h thought it
was Inexpedient to offer to fund nntll th
5 30 bond war paid. After these were paid,
there would be no difficulty in having the
new bonds taken, either at non. or Abroad.
Alluding to the respective political platforms,
relating to the finances, he argued that the
Democratic platform was all in the interest
ot the bondholders, and be would not hesi
tate to any that if Frank Blair stood upon
the Republican platform and Grant stood
upon the other, he would vote for Frank
Blair.
Mr. Schenck said his obleet la this bill was
to consolidate the publio debt of th country
and at a low rat of interest. Other nations
had don so, and tbr was no reason why we
could not do to. He knew that we could not
consolidate at as low a rate of Interest as old
established government! of Europe could, but
we were rapidly advancing to that period and
condition when We muld also nut our bonds
out at a low rati.
Mr. Plke'c amendment was rejected
Mr. Delano, of Ohio, Argued that th tlmo
had not yet Armed for tbe consolidation of
the publio debt At a low rale of Interest, and
that It would bo difficult at this tlmo to have
be bonds taken.
I Mr. Logan, of Illinois, thought It wax de
uraui to tuna to ust, proriuea w couiu
have the bonds xohaugd, but h doubted
whether any holder of a bond bearing 0 or C
per cent, interest would exchange It for a bond
bearing only 4 per cent, or 3 05 per cent. But
there was a way to Induce this exchange
That was to tax the present 5 20 end ether
bonds. The bolder of these would then ex
change them for A funded bond not liable to
taxation, became they would be fearful that
Increased rates of taxation would follow th
first taxation upon th A 30 bonds But
nothing would be done unlsrs the funded
bonds were made positively exempt from tax
ation Mr. Pile, of Missouri, moved to emend by
providing for one long bond, to ran for sixty
year. He doubted whether a bond for a
aborter period would meet wltb favor, or that
It would be readily taken by our people
Mr. Sthenck believed that tbe bends pro
posed in thii bill would be readily taken. He
recognised tbe necessity, however, of giving
every possible and Irropealable guarantee that
tb bonds themselves or th Interest arising
from them, should vr b taxed. Let it be
fised and unalterable how these bonds are to
be paid, and tbey would be taken. And the
very ambiguity and uncertainty surrounding
the 9.20 and other bonds, would make holders
thereof anxious for a change.
Mr. Dawes, of Mais, Advocated a loan
that wonld be as permanent as possible, end
In hla argument nllnded to the feet that whit
3 per cent bonds of Massachusetts were abov"
par in London and Frankfort, the United
Stetrs bondi were below par tn tbe same
market.
Mr. Butler, of Moss . Argued that If th
bonds were exsmpt from taxation; were so
issued is to be free from all fluctuations by
reason of future legislation; and If their
terms wero positively fixed there wouIJ be no
difficulty In having them taken.
Mr. Garfield, of Ohio, said a good deal bad
been aalJ about tbe Massachusetts bonds. He
tboughttbat the reason why they were quoted
so well waa that they were permanent Inveit
ments, while tb bonds of the United States
were liable to be sent home for payment at

Mr Allison, of Iowa, opposed the amenl

Mr. Maynard, of Tennessee, argued against
