A RlmpU Salt and Wat.r Injection In rises of Traotfoalon, WaHhiug the blood is the latest rem edy for diseanos brought on by or caus ing a sluggish circulation and low state of tho blood. The washing process is performed by plain salt and water. From a pint to two Quarts of water is injected into the syitem by moans U an ordinary hypodermic syringe. A vein is opened in the arm of the patient with the usual antiseptic pre cautions and the salt Water injected in large doses. A profuse perspiration and general activity of the secretory orgaus follow, carrying away the noxious mat ter present iu the blood. Tho new rem edy is recommended by several doctors In papers reud recently before the Acad emy of Medicino in Paris and has been successfully employed in numerous in stancea Iu cases of anaemia, typhoid, hemorrhages, sudden shock and even in oases of intoxication this blood wash ing, it is said, works wonders. For soma years surgeons have used a saline injec tion in cases of collapso after an opera tion. It is the most powerful tonio known and has saved many lives. Its efficacy in ordinary disoanes has, bow ever, only recently been discovered. Modern medicine has a tendency to resort to simple methods which recog nize the all curing powers of water. Washing the stomach, as practiced by soveral New York physicians, is of very recent origin and is considered invalu able in caws of indigestion. A simple bath of warm water is often all that is necessary to restore the stomach to its normal condition by removing the poisonous WHritu products which are not profusely thrown off by the secretory organs. By means of a soft rubtwr tube put down tho throat water can be poured into the stomach and siphoned out again. To wash the blood in, of course, more difficult, as the water has to be injected into a vein. It is well kuown that the blood of frog can bo drawn off and the blocnl of another frog substituted without greutly inconveuieueing the creature. It was then found that a salt watej aolutiou can be substituted instead of blood, to a considerable extent, nt least, and the frog will live and be us Rprightly'as ever. This fact first gave tbe scientists the idea of injecting an artificial serum into tho veins of a human bei lg, either anaemic or intoxicated.

Although announcements in the na ture of advertisement appeared in the London Gazette almost from the first, the word itself does uot occur until No. 42, 5-9 April, 1606, when ."An Adver tisement from tho Hearth Office In Lon don," addressed to the farmers of the hearth tax, was inserted. This was re peated in No. 43,. 16-19 April The heading 'Advertisement" appears In the body of the journal in No. 62, which bears date 10-14 May, 1666. In No. 62, 1418 June, 1666, the editor inserts the following, which deserves notioo as an instance of unparalleled self denial : "An Advertisement Being daily prcst to the Publication of Books, Med icines, and other things not properly the business of a Paper of Intelligence, Tbis is to notifle, onoe for all, that we will not charge The Gatette with Advertise ments, unless they be matter of State; but that a Paper of Advertisements will be forthwith printed apart, and recom mended to the Publirk by another hand" It occurs to me to ask what the "Pa per of Advertisements" was; and does not tho extract furnish an early instance of the use of the editorial "we?" The good resolutions of tho editor were soon broken, and he inserts the following in No. 94, 8-11 October, 1666: "Such as have settled in new Habita tions since the late Fire, and desire for the convenience of their correspondence to publish the placo of their present abode, or to give notice of Goods lost or found, may repair to the comer House in Bloomsbury on tbe East Side of the Great Square, before the House of the Right Honourable the Lord Trcas urer, where there is care taken for the Receipt and Publication of such Adver tisements." After this date announcements head ed "Advertisements" become common. Notes and Queries. . "J out Keep Qalct."

Of such a class was one of the most worthy and distinguished whilom servants of church and state, tho Rev. G. U.

We well remember how, on one occa inn in winter, when he was addressing a large depotr there was a great deal of coughing in rhapel which disturbed the sermon. Tho venerable chaplain general at once assumed an air of' an officer in front nf a battalion and said: "Now, my lads, I'm an old man, and if you tnako so much noiso, X can't make my self heard.

SaTd tbe Life of On. of Ilia Companions - Th Geology t'Ua. feand fiHsthlng Iu tho Kocklaa It Waaa't Looking For. It was iu September and tho Colo rado sun 'had done its duty and mado Phil as brown of face and stout of limb as any of us that the geology class, consisting of the professor and ten pu pils, made an excursion into tho rango Vith the object of taking a practical lesson among the limestone bed at the back of Lincoln park. Away we went feeling very hilar ious at the idea of making an inderiend- ent expedition, even with Blinkers for general scrambling over rocks and fallen trees, chasiug squirrels and chip munks, throwing stones at birds and rabbi tH, and behaving generally just liko what we were a parovl of school- Doys. Presently we emerged from tho trees and came out upon another little open f avklike stretch of ground. Half way sjSTOss it our attention was suddenly at tracted by a stir among some high grass, and out jumped a little, dark colored, short legged animal, which looked like a woolly pig if there be any such thing in nature. Away it scuttled, and away we all went, with a shout, in pursuit. Phil happened to be some distance behind at tho moment, liciug busily en gaged in digging a tarautala's nest out of the ground with his kuifo; but as soon as ho saw what we were doing ho came racing after us, shouting: "Look out! Look out! It's a" We did not bear what, we were mak ing so much noise ourselves. But the little animal, .whatever it was, was too quick for us and disap peared into some willows while we were still 20 yards behind. Tbe next moment the willows waved and bent and out bounced a great she bear a grizzly 1 With a yell of dismay we all turned and, scattering like a flock of sparrows when a cat .jumps into the midst of them, fled for the nearest trees. Blink- era, quite forgetting that he was tho general of the little expeditionary force, made such use of his long legs that ho was safely up a tree ttefore any of tho rest of us had reached one. As for me, I never reached one at all. In turning to run I tripped over the ax, and though I was up again iu an in stant the check made me tho last of the fugitive . The chase was very soon over. In six jumps, aa it seemed, the great beast caught me, and, with one blow of her paw on tho middlo of my back, sent me, faot downward, to the ground, with ev ery atom of breath driven out of my body. This last circumstance was a good thing for me ; I could not have moved a muscle if I had wished to. Consequently the bear supposed that I was dead, and instead of tearing me up . into small pieces, as I expected, she began sniffing me all over and turning me about with her claws. Suddenly, however, she ceased and began to growl, and I heard Blinkers up in his tree call out, "Go back I You can't do any good. You'll only get yourself killed too. " From which I con cluded that Blinkers and the War had one thought in common ; they both sup posed mo to be dead. I waa beginning" to recover my breath a little by this time, and in my anxiety to see what was going forward I mado a slight movement with one arm, and in an instant the boar had that arm be tween her teeth. It hurt me so horribly that I fainted, and all that happened afterward I gathered from the other boys. Phil, when he saw me knocked down, instead of climbing up a tree like the rest, ran back to where 1 had dropped the ax, and, picking it up, advanced to my rescue. It was a mad thing to do, there is no doubt about that ; but Phil did it and without a thought of his own danger. It was in vain that Blinkers called to him to go back : he did not seem to hear, but kept coming on slowly, with his eyes fixed on the bear, and the ax held In readiness to strike. The bear dropped my arm and ad vanced a step, standing across my body, growling and turning up her lips until all her great white teeth were exposed ; but still Phil came on. At six feet dis tance he stopped. -The bear took a step forward, and then another, and then, with all the strength of his body doubled br the intense excitement of the mo ment, Phil struck at her with such force and precision that he split her skull clean in two. But, even in dying, the boar succeeded in doing some mischief. .With a last convulsive effort she struck out and, with her great claws, tore away the front of Phil's coat, vest and shirt and made three deep cuts all across his chest from the left shoulder diagonally downward. Another inch and Phil must eertainly have been killed. As it was. ho stood for a moment sway ing to and fro, and then fell forward upon the dead body of the bear.

Detroit Newt CHIEF JUSTICE BIGELOW'S VIEWS. Nevada'a Clrrat Jurl.t Kara Vrrm Coinag-o Will Injur Mlvrr Minrra, 1'onaloiirra aod All bat a tw Ibtora. Chief Justice K. It. Bigelow of th fupremo court of Nevad.i had a letter in a recent issue of tin Keno (ev. ) da zettc which states some of the effecls of 10 to 1 fn-e coinago very clearly, lie r is a part of his letter: It is uot to tie denied that tbe K( pub licans of this state are hard hit by the action of tho tit. Louis convention upon the monetary question. Tho free coinage of silver is Ulir-ved to bo so much to the advantage of Nevada as a silver producer! and wo have for so many years heard nothing but free coinaKO at 10 to 1" arguments, that we have almost com to tho conclusion that no onocant! '.k otherwise who is not a sooundrt 1 lmiht with British gold But titer is unother side to tho question that is believed in siucerely by millions of as pure patriots as any w ho ls-lievo in free coinage of silver. Any man who says that this country can alone cluublo the value of all the silver of th world and bring it and gold to par is either ignorant of tho lessons of the pat or ho willfully shuts his eyes to them. If the free silverites carry the election this fall on their 16 to 1 platform, it will not only paralyze business it will utterly destroy it Thero will be warcely a bank or business house iu the land that will not go down beforo tho storm. It will send gold to almost 100 per cent premium, and, us measured with silver, everything else will go up in value w ith it, but as it will tako twice as many dollars as now to buy the same article it will be of no earthly advantage to any one except to tho man who owes debts that he has not promis-d to pay in gold. His silver dollars will pay such a debt just as during tho war green backs would pay one, although wortli but 83 cents on tho dollar, but they will only buy half as much flour or clothing or groceries as now. But if ho owes money to banks or money lenders and who doc uot? who have all protecKnl themselves by gold contracts, he will havo to tako two of his silver dollars to buyonoiu gold, and at the same time, owing to tho general stagnation in business, they will be harder to get hold of than gold dollars arc now. It will be of no advantage to the silver states, because their silver will be just as hard to get from the ground as now, and a pound of it will buy no more steel or powder or any of the necessaries of life than now. But tho lal)oring man will be the ono who will suffer tho mct The Comstock miner will still get 4 per day, tho la borer $3 and the cleric f 60 to 75 per month but. it will ho in silver, and. n OFF ITS it 'Is now" in Mex'ico, ft will only buy for his family or himself one-half what it will today. Tho same will bo tho case with tho crippled veterans, their widows and orphans, who are now get ting pensions. Its effect will be to scale their pensions. Its effect will bo to scale their pensions down one-half. There is not oue of tho arguments of the silverites that cannot be completely and successfully refuted. Freo coinage at 16 to 1 by this country alone cannot possibly benefit anyone, but it can bring fearful distress upon all. Hard Tltnea and Frr Silver. The Clarksvillc (Tcnn.) Leaf-Chronicle has the following: "There is not a first class commercial country on earth now that has freo coin nge. "There is not a free silver country on earth that has as much ns $. per capita in circulation all kinds of money. "There is in circulation in the United States $24 per capita, or $19.50 more per capita than any free silver country on earth. "We have more in circulate n today than ever beforo and more per capita than any free silver country on earth. "Our dollar will buy more sugar, coffee, flour, meal, meat, medicine, hardware and clothing than in 1873. "A barrel of com, a bushel of w heat or 100 pouudsof tobacco will buy nearly double ns much of the articles that fanners consume ns the same kind 'of corn, w heat or tobacco would buy in 1873. "Tho wages of the laboring man will buy double as much of the necessaries cf life now as in IS73, and his wages have not leen reduced one-fourth ns much ns the purchasing power of his money has been increased." All of tho above propositions we assert without the fear of intelligent contra diction. Then, if it be a fact that no free silver country on earth has as much $5 jht capita; and if it bo a fact that we havo about $21 per capita; and if it be a fact that we have more silver in circulation per capita than any free sil ver country in the world ; and if it be a fact that the purchasing power of our dollar is now alont double what it was in 1873, and that the products of the farm will purchaso moro necessaries of fe than iu 1873, our free silver friends will have to hunt farther for tho hard times complained of. They can't charge it to a reduced circulation or to higher prices. Jalveston Newa Eaowi tim Fear. "Are you afraid, Lily, when you go driving with Mr. Phillips that the horse will run away?"

AB&OILUTOILY PURE Vli-r Our Trade luterrata Are. Iu declaring for the free coinage of silver independently of all other coun tries the Chicago convention in effect declared for a different and lower money standard than that used by the great commercial nations with which we trade. Trade and commerce follow the lines of least monetary resistance, and out of total merchandise imports and exports last year of 11,639,508,130 only $103,893,827 was from single silver standard countries less than 11 per cent. Even in our South American trade, about which so much has been said, out of a total of $145,693,055 only 6 per cent, $S, 991,853, was with silver stand ard countries, w hilo 72 per cent, $105, 217,864, was with single gold standard countries, uud $31,483,338 was with bi metallic countries. Practically speaking, all bimetallic countries are on a gold basis, their legal tender silver being exchangeable for gold, but the bimetallic trade is small. Let Europe serve as the example.

Our trade and commerce are not only on "a gold basis." but are on "a single TROLLEY. gold standard." 10 aaopt kiitvt tumir nietallism, which independent free coin age would surely produce hew as it lias everywhere else, would be to permit Europe to fix the price of our surplus products on a gold basis, while it could pay us in our own legal tender silver dollars coined freely out of 53 cents worth of bullion. Is this business? Why Thla FaTorltiura? Silver can be profitably produced in this country at CO cents an ounce. It is now selling here for n frac tion over 69 cents. Tho mine owners ask, and tho Chi cago convention is ready to agree, that the government shall make their prod uct worth $1.29 for coinage purposes. Why this favoritism? If the govern ment which means tho taxpayers is to double the value of silver bullion, why may it not logically be asked to double tho value of wheat corn, cotton and potatoes by making an "unlimited" market for them at a fictitious price? Tho silver product of this country is relatively of minor importance. Its real valuo in 1895 was about $32,000,000. The copper product was worth $3S, 000, 000, pig iron $105,000,000 and soft coal $115,000,000. Why should theso prod ucts bo sold at commercial rates aud silver be doubled in money value by act of congress? The silver craze is, nt bottom, the most unjust paternalism and the worst bunko game ever attempted in this country. New York World. Why Not Ten Cent Dollar We all know that this country can sustain a limited amount of silver cur rency at a ratio of 16 to 1 Is "cause it is already doing it. But if it can sustain an unlimited amount coined nt tho same ratio, why can it not as well sustain it at a ratio of 3 to 1? In other words, why can it not strike from our 1 0 cent piece the inscription "one dime" and make it "one dollar?" If this lx prao ticable and it scons to me that the is as practicable as the other is not the proposition of unlimited 16 to 1 an ex travagant and usolcf-s wnste of the most valuable commodity which the world has ever kuown? It appears that then are greater possibilities open to ih. nd vocatcs of tho white metal than even they have as yet conceived. T. F. Kick. Mnlro'i Silver ltllar.
