Among the many minor aids to the detection of crime possessed by Scot land Yard authorities none is more efficient than the “Register of Laun dries,” a huge brass bound volume containing lists of all establishments in the kingdom where washing is tak en, together with the distinctive signs and letters employed by each in mark ing their customers* linen and under clothing. Practically every laundry has its own private mark, usually a combina tion of two or more letters of the alphabet. Following these, on each article sent by a customer to the wash is a number corresponding to the said customer’s name in the books of the concern. It is not difficult to see how this practice may be turned to the advan tage of the police, and, as a matter of fact, it has been the means of bring ing to justice at one time and another quite a large number of criminals.— London Mail. Bouncing Bet. Leaves from the bouncing bet are responsible for the beautiful complex ions of the English girls, who crush the juice from them and make a lath er by shaking it in water. The plant grows everywhere in profusion, send ing out numerous underground runners as well as spreading its kind by seed. The stem is quite stout, w T ith a smooth, erect, unbranched length. At the top are clustered numerous pink flowers with deeply notched or cleft petals. Sometimes the plant is called the “soap wort” because of the use made of the leaves. In England the plant blossoms from July until September, profusely in waste places. It was one of the first foreign flowers to be intro duced into this country and thrives in our gardens and hedges.—Philadelphia North American. About Greenbacks. Not a great many people have tak en the trouble to find out why Uncle Sam’s banknotes are printed with green backs. The great drawback to paper currency is the likelihood of counter feiting, and this danger has been the chief reason for the constant study of experts, who seek a plan whereby bills cannot be copied. Stacy JJ Edson was the man who, in 1857, invented the green ink which Uncle Sam uses, and this he patented. It is anti-photographic—that is, it can not be photographed, nor can it. be moved with alkalis by counterfeiters working to get a facsimile of the notes. The secret of the ink’s ingre dients, of course, is carefully kept.— Exchange. Needless Alarm. “Am forwarding a barrel of spruce gum as a gift,” wired a Vermont man to a friend in Boston. “Gee whiz!” ejaculated the Boston man. “That’s more gum than my family could con sume in several lifetimes.” So he went to his druggist and arranged to have him take 100 pounds or so at a fair price. Congratulating himself on being so much in pocket, the Boston man awaited the arrival of the barrel. It came. It was three inches' high.—Ex change. The Lathe. Originally intended to be operated by the physical exertion of one man, the lathe has now reached such a state of development that in many cases forty to sixty horsepower, or the equivalent of 600 men, is necessary to operate it. It is one of the earliest forms of tool to be driven by machinery. A Subtle Meaning. Miss Olderly—The mountain air is so exhilarating. I feel like a two year-old this morning. Miss Younger —And you look it, dear, twenty times over. —Chicago News. Children. Children are travelers newly arrived in a strange country. We should therefore make conscience not to mis lead them.—Locke. PRACTICAL HEALTH HINT. Inflamed Mouths. In children catarrhal inflamma tion of the mouth is commonly seen in association with diges tive disturbances, the result of improper food or faulty hygiene, especially of the mouth. They are restless and disinclined to nurse. The temperature is slight ly elevated, the breath is fetid, and the mucous membrane of the mouth is red and swollen. The treatment consists in the removal of the cause. In infants the cleansing of the mouth and of the mother’s nipples or of arti ficial nipples, if these be used, is imperative. The mother’s nip ples should be washed with boric acid water after each nursing. Bottle nipples should be turned wrong side out and scrubbed (with a brush kept for this pur pose) with boric acid water, then rinsed in clean boric acid water and then put to soak in clean cold water (which has been boil ed) until it is to be used. The mouth must be kept clean by frequent washing with boric acid water and glycerin mix ture, twenty grains of boric acid and one teaspoonful of glycerin and eight teaspoonfuls of boiled water, mixed together. If there is constipation or diarrhea, milky magnesia may be giveD to correct this trouble. The Spirit of Christmas is abroad in the land.
