STORAGE OF FURS.
A Business Which Is Assuming Extern,Ive Proportions In Large titles. Furriers have two harv ests. One is the approach of oolcl weather, when they sell furs, and the other is the approaoh of .hot weather wb.-n they store them. Moths are the great terror of those who own fine firs, and what a terrible thing it would be if a sealskin sacque, which cost two hun dred and fifty dollars, should he found next fall riddled with these destruc tives! This is often, however, the suit when they are put away by those who are not experts, for moths will get in at the very slightest crevices, and often they succeed even when great care bas been taken, trouble and risk are avoided by send ing one's furs to the furriers, where they are kept safely until required. The furriers charge itbandsonuifoo, and some houses clear enough from this item alone to pay tbeir rent and store •xpensea for the whole year. The ex tent of the business may bo inferred from the fact that nearly ten thousand sealskin sacques were 'worn in this eity last winter besides other furs, and also fur-trimmed dresses, which re quire an almost equal degree of care. Fur dealers say that the only way to keep furs is to clean them thoroughly and then put them away in very tight boxes. The moths, however, hre so penetrative that constant vigilance is necessary, and hence every fortnight tho furs must bo taken out, beaten and restored to the boxes, the grubs are occasionally noticed, and this shows the need of such precaution. The fur dealers also on on re 177 1 Ins At such times suv they prefer this method to the use of any preventives, as the latter are gen erally injurious. Camphor, for instance, which is so commonly used is injurious to snblo and some other furs, and its unpleasant odor renders it very objec tionable. Tar paper is used by some people, but the fur dealers object to it because of tho strong smell whieh it leaves on any thing with which it comes in contact. Tobacco and cedar wood are found unreliable, and the fur riers, therefore, depend almost solely on the above described method. Those who can not store their furs in this manner must, of course, resort to eainphor, oil oodar, tobaceo, tar paper and other preventives and then "put up" with the inevitable odor. When •torage, however, is accessible it will be found the better way, because it is always free from the risk which attends all other methods. A lady, for in stance, who bad some very valuable furs made the remark to a fur dealer: "Why should I pay you for taking care of my furs when 1 can doit just as well myself?" She was a very capable wo man and put her furs safely in boxes, on whose joints she pasted strips of paper, thus making them perfectly tight. One season she was successful, but the next time this method was tried the furs were so eaten as to be spoiled. The moth had penetrated in some mys terious manner or else the eggs had been laid previously. At any rate, the lesson came too late. The expense of storing a two hundred aud fifty dollar sacque is ten dollars, whieh is certainly very reasonable These goods are hung up in dark closets and in this manner aro preserved from would injure their appearance, furrier gives a receipt, and each bears its owner's name, and in this manner identity of ownership is pre served.—A r .

"There arc twenty-five thousand lo comotives in the United States." said a railway official, "and every one of them is furnished with a headlight. A locomotive without a headlight would look like a dog without a nose, and most people would say that it is next to impossible to run a looomotive with out a big lamj) in front. Yet I am of the opinion Mint these lamps are almost useless, and that they could be taken oft'of most locomotives without detri ment to anybody. Headlights are not in use f England, and we have nsed them in America simply because sonto bodv used them before become so accustomed to them that most people think that a locomotive without a lamp could not be run with safety, but I am convinced that there is more danger in their use than in their absence. I speak, of course of road engines, and not of those used in yards. On a road engine tbe headlight is of no earthly use to the enginecr;Tt obstructs his vision so that lie can not see his •witch-lights, ami I think that every thinking engineer will come to the conclusion that he would rather run in the night without a lamp than with it, as he can see better in the dark. Red can not be seen distinctly under such a powerful light when the engine is run ning rapidlv. A green light under the brilliant illumination of a headlight appears yellow, and a blue light ap pears pale. I know of accidents which have occurred from this cause, and the •ye-sight of every engineer having a night run is put under a terrible strain by continually gazing ahead into such a light surrounded by snch dense dark ness. If there is any good argument in favor of the retention of headlights on road locomotives it is that travelers by public highways who have to cross railroads at grade can see the train ec ning at a greater distance by means of the headlights. But it would be cheaper for the roads to rig up auto matic warning bells at every grad# crossing than to continue the use of so many unneeded lamps The trie headlight put on the market a few years ago was a success as a light giver, but k has not been generally in troduced, simply because railroad managers know that headlights road locomotives arc practically use less, and that a more powerful light would be positively dangerous."— Chi cago Herald. us.

This is the prolific notion that j presides over the whole history of the dis j ease, aud which should unceasingly in spire and direct all medical action.

It should not be interred from that moment that he who has them is doomed to death in sequence of their presence. Should it be fouud that the tubercles soften and a cavern forms, it should not be believed. on this account, that all is lost. It has been shown that this is not the case, and the natural tendency which tubercle has to fibrous transformation—that is, to covery—should not be forgotten, liefere being discouraged, the physician should search and examiuo incessantly whether the patient is in the requisite conditions for such favorable evolution to occur, if all hope of absolute reoovery must be abandoned, a relative cure should be wrought, and every exertion be made to place the patient in such conditions that ne can live, notwithstam ing the lesions which are now irreparable: in a word, the plan adopted should be to strive aud strive always', with the unshakencoufl deuce which may be (Lawn from .the notion that recovery is possible. - The enemy can be conquered. This is the idea that should engender and sustain every effort. It is certain that this con viction is the first condition of success, since it is absence of faith in the possibil ity of a cure which prevents the adoption of all therapeutic treatment.

And this end is attained, not by medii ines which aim by themselves to cure, but by so invigorating and stiengtlieuing the system as to enable nature to effect ibis fibrsus transforma tion from which alone can a cure be ex pected.

Government Chemist, of large amounts of lime and alum iu the cheap baking powders. It is a startling fact that of over one hundred different brands of baking powder so far analyzed, comprising all those sold in this vicinity, not one, with the single exception of Royal Baking Powder, was found free from both lime and alum. The use of alum is to produce a cheap baking powder. It costs less than two cents a pound, whereas pure cream of tartar costs forty. Its effect upon the system has been ascer tained to be poisonous, and overdoses have been attended with fatal results. Lime is the most useless adulterant yet found in baking powders. It is true that when subjected to heat a certain amount of carbonic acid gas is given off, but a quick lime is left, a caustic so powerful that it is used by tanners to eat the hair from hides of animals, and in dissecting rooms to more quickly rot the flesh from the bones of dead subjects. The effect of lime upon the delicate membranes of the stomach, intestines and kidneys, more particularly of infants and children, and especially when taken into the system day after day, and with almost every meal, is pernicious in the extreme, and is said by physicians to be one of the chief causes of indigestion, dyspepsia, and diseases of the kidneys. Chemists have found 12 per cent., or one-eighth of the weight, of some of the baking powders prominently sold in this vicini ty, to be lime. The wickedness of this adulteration is apparent. The absolute purity and wholesomeness of the Royal Baking Powder—now affirmed by every chemist and food analyst of prominence, and conceded by all manufacturers of other brands—arises from the exclusive use of cream of tartar specially refined by patent processes, which remove totally the lime and all other impurities. These facilities are pos sessed by no other manufacturer. The Chemist of the De partment of Health of Brooklyn, N. Y., in which city the works of the Royal Baking Powder Company are situated, after recent numerous experiments, reports : I subjected several samples of the Royal Baking Powder, purchased from dealers in Brooklyn, to chemical analysis, and I take pleasure in stating that this powder has attained a most remarkable purity. I am unable to detect the slightest trace of lime tartrate in it, while all its constituents are pure and of the highest quality. The 'Royal' is a baking powder undoubtedly of the greatest leavening power, and perfectly wholesome. Dr. o. grothe, Chemist Department of Health , Brooklyn, N. 7." CASTOR IA for Infants and Children.
