What Happens When a Devil Jumps Down a Patient's Threat, It is the custom for a Chinaman t.. visit the barber every week to have h general overhauling. First, the bead and face are shared; second, the ear are scraped and cleansed with a small brush made of duck's bair; third, the upper and lower eyelids are scraped with a dull edged knife, all granula tions being smoothed away, and then an application la made with a duckV bair brush of salt solution. This is tbe reason why you will find so much blindness in Chlun. Thej take no antiseptic measure whatever. Finally the patient's back is mas saged. and after puyiug a fee of 3 cepts and no tip be leaves tbe shop, feeling clean outside, but now must consult bis regular physician. After going through tbe usual exam ination, which is a form of military in spection. tbe doctor d la gooses the case and treats it unless a devil happens to Jump down tbe patient's throat. If this bas happened tbe doctor can do tbe patient no good until be promises to set off a hundred firecrackers and to make a daily visit to tbe joss house. This done, be receives tbe usual pill! for those vacated by tbe devil. These pills may consist of spotted rhinoceros horns, said to be a wonder ful cure for intestinal troubles. Tbe spotted rhinoceros borns come from southern China, and in tbe market at Singapore a single specimen will bring $25. - Tiger bones when ground to a pow der and mixed with Chinese wine make a great blood tonic which Ik used by all classes of Chinese in north era China. The recipe is held by h firm in Hbaoghal that has become very wealthy by tbe sale of this tonic. Old deer horns are boiled down to make tbe medicinal glue which binds tbe fifty ingredients composing tbe average Chinese pills. As in these you may get anything from a piacb of gunpowder to powdered cobra tall dust it is not tbe fault of Wong Yik Cbee if just the right kind of specific escapes the patient. Equal in medicinal etOcacy to tbe above are three high grade tiger reme dies, the eyeball, liver and blood. As may be imagined, tiger eyeball, tbe genuine article, can be prescribed for only tbe exceedingly wealthy Chinese. Similarly tbe liver, when dried and re duced to a powder, is worth its weight In gold all over China. Tiger blood, when evaporated to a solid at a tem perature of 110 degrees and taken as a powder, is believed by Asiatic to transform a craven into a bero. Med ical Record. VALUABLE TO THE NAVY Mr. Choate having arrived at the "oldsighted age," did not recognize it. or did not wish to begin the use of glasses.': In pleading a cause . he had difficulty in seeing his notes, and in order properly to decipher his manus cript kept holding his paper father and father off.

THE CAPITAL IN TOUCH AT ALL TIMES WITH VESSELS ON THE MOST DIS TANT STATIONS. (American Newt (Service) Washington, Sept. 24. Commander Cleland Davis and Lieutenant C. O. Sweet the naval officers having in charge the selection near Washington of the site for the 3.0CO mile radius wireless telegraph station for the na vy department, consider it possible that the plant will be erected on ton of an old reservoir at Georgetown, near this city. The station will have the greatest radius for wireless telegraphy in the United States. From there the nav7 department will be able to communi cate with vessels in the Carrlbean sea, and at nearly every port in the West Indies. This tower, which will house the powerful wireless apparatus, will be built of steel and concrete, and will be more than GOO feet in height. The army, too, is paying much atten tion to both wireless telegraphy and wireless telephony. Invention by Lahm. Lieut. Frank P. Lahm. chief of the nautical division of the United States signal corps, has just completed a won derful little wireless telegraph apparat us for use In aeroplanes, or in free and dirigible balloons. While allowing of communication for about three mile3 between airships, or between airships and stations on the ground, it will, it is thought by signal corps officers, be of much value in case of warfare in the clouds, the whole apparatus occupies the space of a small suit case. In stead of a long pole, at the top of which the Hertzian waves are caught as in earth stations, a wire is dropped from the airship equipped with the ap paratus, and communication is made at the end of that. As soon as the wireless station can be manufactured, each ship will doubtless have one. At. Ft- Meyer, Vs., and Ft. Omaha, Neb., tbe signal corps has for some time been conducting experiments with wireless telephony. Brig. Gen. Allen, chief signal officer, recently returned from Schenectady, N. Y.. where he in vestigated a type of wireless telephone apparatus now being manufactured by an electrical company of that city. Gen. Allen said today: ."We expect , these instruments to be. In their particular field, what the Wright aeroplane is in aeronautics." ' The experiments in wireless telepho ny at Ft, Meyer and at Ft. Omaha, have attracted little attention, but sig nal corps officers declare that remarka ble results were obtained. ' Mining It Plain.
