Ask your doctor the medical name for a cold
on the chest. He will say, "Bronchitis." Ask
him if it is ever serious. Lastly, ask him if
he prescribes Ayer's Cherry Pectoral for this
disease. Keep in close touch with your family
physician, and follow his advice carefully.

Over In Europe there are many hap
py towns where the note of the mos
quito is never heard and the inhabi
tants don't care a snap about the pen
nyroyal market. But in America the
cities which can claim to be mosqul
toless would not run up to a dozen.
Denver is one of them, and, strange to
say, Grand Rapids, Mich, only a short
way from the gnat Gehennas of Lake
Superior, is another. The explanation
is that the city is built on hillocks of
drift sand so deep and so finely pul
verized that they absorb moisture like
tissue paper. Stagnant water does not
get a ghost of a chance to accumulate,
and mosquitoes have carried their car*
go of microbes to more congenial mar
Soldiers In Battle.
"It Is Important to be cool and self
possessed at the beginning of a fight,"
writes one who has commanded men
la battle. "As soon as the first shot is
fired men become serious and go into
action with a calmness which is most
Impressive. High explosive shells,
with their deafening noise, make the
most impression on young and unsea
soned soldiers, while shrapnel affects
the old soldiers the most. Those who
imagine that it is possible to see a
heroic look on men's faces at a de
cisive moment are completely mistak
en. Their faces are pale and have a
hard look about them. The straggle
which is going on within them betrays
itself by the nervous haste of their
A DlHatLrantave of Health.
A visitor among the poor of the east
end of London found unexpected testi
mony to the disadvantages of health
in one of his calls. Mrs. had a fam
ily of a dozen children, and, like most
of her class, she had* her tale of woe to
te|I. "How are the children, Mrs,
Inquired the caller. "All very well, in*
deed, sir very well, Indeed," was the
answer. "You ought to be thankful,
I'm sure, with so much sickness

to be thankful but, I tell you, when

Too Much Gxerolie.
Unfortunately a good many men have
the conviction that they must keep
exerting themselves all the time. They
call every moment wasted which Is
not spent in activity of some kind,
either physical or mental. Such men
are tuking the quickest means to burn
themselves out You onunot li\e well

tyrannical sense of effoit Theie must
be times of play, times to let up the
tension and to do easy and natuial
things which don't lequlre conscience
and exact attention Horace Bushnell,
the great Connecticut minister, recog
nlzed this when he said, "Let's go sin
awhile" Sinning has the advantage
of being easy, and there are times
when the easy thing is the right thing.
A man who takes no time off foi one
kind of play or another, but who keeps
the anxious, conscientious look on his
face day In and day out, may be on the
road to heaven, but he will find that

Luther Gulick in Good Housekeep
A Few Correction*.
A few things picked up from a child's
schoolbook. Never say, "I don't think
it will rain What you mean Is, "I do
think It will not lain." "All over the
world" is bad, say "0\er all the world
"The leason wh is not only incoriect,
but doesn't sound as well as "The rea
son that" In the King James version
of the Bible, quoted by same authoii
ties as a standard of puie English, one
may find the following, which occurs
in Isaiah xxx\ li, 30 "Then the angel of
the Lord went foith and smote in the
camp of the Assyiians hundred and
fourscore and five thousand, and when
they arose early in the morning, be
hold they were all dead corpses." In
other words, the corpses arose early in
the morning and found themselves
dead. Don't say "A man fell off the
dock." A man might fall into a dock,
but to say that he fell off a dock is no
better than to say he fell off a hole.
The Created Rat.
The crested rat of East Afuca is re
markable, first because of the great
length of the black and white hairs
down the ridge of the back, which are
rendered the more conspicuous because
the hairs along the sides of the body
are so short and so differently colored,
being brownish gray and looking for
all the world as if some one had taken
a pair of scissois and maliciously shorn
off the decorative bair, leaving only a
dull underfur Secondly, it is remaik
able because the skull has a roofing of
bones exactly resembling that of some
turtles, while, fmthermoie, this roof
has a granulated appealance recalling
that presented bj the skulls of certain
fishes In its habits it appears to be
arboreal while from the stiucture of its
teeth it would appear to be at least
A Curious Tomb.
The most curious tomb in England is
that of Lady Anne Grimston, daughter
of the Eail of Thanet, who died nearly
two centuries ago and was buried in
Tewin churchyard Upon her deathbed
she disregarded the efforts of those
who sought to administer spiritual
comfort An atheist she had lived, an
atheist she would die "It is as likely
that I should rise agam from the dead,"
she said, "as that a tree should grow
out of the middle of my coffin." A
tree has grown out of the middle of her
coffinan oakand by its side a syca
more. The vault is square, of brick
and granite The two trees first filled
the interior befoie they could find a
way out. When they did burst thiough
the masonry they so spread as com
pletely to envelop the grave
When Everything la Poisonous.
All substances, even eggs, are poison
ous when they are injected in certain
quantities Into the circulatory system
of an animal A French investigator
has taken the powdered yolk of a
duck's egg, treated it with a 20 per
cent solution of salt and injected it in
to the veins of an animal until it died.
In order to kill a rabbit fifty five grains
of the substance were lequired for
each pound of the rabbit's weight The
yolk of a hen's egg is less poisonous,
but that of a turtle more so than that
of a duck The albumen of eggs is

They Joined Hand*.
Mr. Rhodes once told a circle of
friends after dinner the story of his
first meeting with Belt. "I called at
Porges' late one evening," he said, "and
there was Belt working away as usual.
'Do you never take a rest?' I asked.
'Not often,' he replied. 'Well, what's
your game?' said I. 'I am going to
control the whole diamond output be
fore I am much older,' he answered
as he got off his stool 'That's funny,'
I said 'I have made up my mind to
do the same We bad better join
hands'" Join hands they did Unlike

Butterflies That Live on Fiah.
The butterfly was blue and transpar
ent. As through blue glass its tiny
heart could be seen beating inside its
body, and the professor read a news
paper article through its lovely blue
wings. "This," he said, "Is the ptero
poda, a Mediterranean butterfly. It
eats fish. On its tongue are rows of
pointed hooks. They serve as teeth.
This beautiful creature would turn up
its nose at a garden of roses and lilies,
but it would feast ecstatically upon a
putrid eel. Now and then a pteropoda
is found on the Florida or the Califor
nia coast. It Is only abundant, though,

The Power of Intuition.
The power of intuition usually spok
en of as being so mysterious is really
not so at all," said a woman recently.
"It is merely the ordinary method of
reasoning from observation intensified.
The so called intuitional person differs
from the one of more commonplace
powers in possessing a keener sensi
tiveness to facts. She or he, for it is
absurd to assert that this power is ex
clusively feminine, observes a thou
sand things that persons of duller sense
fall to see and that are beyond the con
