SURE CURE FOR ROUP. In the Houso. The governor's message had been made the order of business yesterday in the hou-e, but on convening atten tion was called to the fact that the mes sage had not yet been printed, where upon the usual order was tasen up. Air. Southwick introduced a resolu tion adopting a rule that all bill- iu trodticed and all in the hands of com mittees having been read the first time should be ordered read the second time and ordered printed. After a some what lengthy diecussion, not so much upon the scope of tne resolution as imon the question of printing, the res olution was declared out of order, though its provisions were generally adopted in subsequent proceedings. In the course of the discussion Mr. Brewer suggested to to the assembly that an es timate of the cost of printing bills should first be made upon the basis of the similar item of expense incurred by the Sixteenth legislature. House bill 30, by Mr. Mehan, an ait to amend section 705, penal code, by the insertion of the clause defining grand larceny, "Where the propeity taken exceeds in value the sum of $50 and is tho property of some other per son." This act being omendatory of a section relating to live stock, was re ferred to the live stock committee Mr. Graham introduced an art re lating to the incorporation of cities, towns and villages whose population exceeds 700. The bill was so extensive that under a suspension of tho rules it was read only by title. It prescribes the manner in which incorporations shall be formed which shall be by a vote of at least two-thirds of the inhabitants of such town, city or village, the ollicers who shall be elected and the manner iu which the affairs of the- incorporation shall be conducted. The bill will eet aside no existing law as there is singularly now nolaw in the statutes of Arizona providing for the incorporation of towns, though there is for disincorporation. On the second reading of H. II. No. 0, relating to the office of probate judge and county Hciiool superintendent, after a somewhat protracted dieusion, was referred to the judiciary lommittee. The Intent of this act is to compel tho above named ofilce to bo kept open be tween the hours of 9 a. 111. and 5 p. in. under a penalty of $25 for each day on which the provisions of tho act are violated. The same hours are now prescribed by law for all other county otuc.es, though in the cases of tho other offices there is no penalty clause. Tho discus sion arose over two amendments, one of which was in a 1 1 1 k m mu the penally clause from the propoeed act, the other to insert a clause permitting the office to be closed at noon. Under tho pres ent law the ollice ol probate judge is necessarily kept open only on one day each week. In the case of house bill No. 13, by Mr. Be hun, relating to wages or salaries as liens, the rules were suspended and the bill vu lead the third time and pa-sed. Ilouso bill No. 7, by Mr. Graham fixing tho maximum price of water for irrigation purposes at $1 25 per acre, compelling owners of canal companies to keep their canals in good condition and become responsible for damage to crop from shortage of water or from any other cause arising out of the negli gence of canal owners, was laid on the ntblo pending the printing of 100 copies of the act. II. B. No. 8 by Mr. Brewer providing for tho attehdance of witnesses in con tinned cases gave rise to a long discus sion joined by several members. An objection urged against it, the old on' that it would entail 11 burdensome ex pense was mot with Mr. Brewer's argu ment in ita favor that its provisions would cut down great preent expense. The bill was advanced to the third read ing and at tho afternoon session was paseed. House bill No. 12, by Mr. Hurley concerning arrests in the night time f-u misdemeanors without warrant was another source of long drawn debate. The house was very nearly equally divided upon, it but the opposition whs divided as to the character of objec tions. Mr. Brewer moved that it bo laid on the table and in support of the motion -aid I hat while tin- purport o( the bill was evidently imhh! and Its appearand innocent it might in the hands of un- Rymptomt of the DUcniie and How to Treat blck Hints. A subscriber whose old chickens have a white substance around the entranco to the windpipe and become wheezy, while the young pullets arc affected with swollen eyes, asks for a cure. From the symptoms described It is impossible to say whether or not it is a case of true roup. Roup proper is a contagious disease and appears to be induced by cold, damp, dark and filthy quarters. Even drafts of cold nir de scending on the fowls while at roost seem to bring on the malady. But so similar are the symptoms of roup and several throat and nasal troubles caused by the samo bad hygienic sur roundings mentioned that It is difficult to tell the true nature of the disease. For this reason we can place but little reliance on most of tho oases where it is claimed that roup has been cured. The symptoms of true roup aro dull ness and general languor, ruffled feath ers, loss of appetite and rapid wheezy breathing. There is a watery discharge from the nostrils which later becomes thick and foul smelling. When the nostrils become closed the discharge exudes from the eyes, thus causing blindness and the head to swell. In severe cases sores form under the thick yellowish cheesy matter in tho throat and on the face. I have consulted with Dr. James haw as to the best treat ment for roupy fowls. He recommends as follows: Sp'ay and swab the throat, mouth and nostri s thoroughly with a solution of 1 ounce hyposulphite of soda to 1 quart of water. The house should be thoroughly disinfected to kill all germs of the disease which may be lodged about the walls and floor. To do this spray with a solution of chloride of lime 4 ounces to 4 quarts of water. Provide the fowls with warm, dry, sunny quarters and feed warm, nutritious food in good variety, always keeping pure water and grit accessible. James Ii Rice, Cornell University. N. Y. A I'rli-ndly Nettletnent. Maj. Campion, in his liook "On the Frontier," describes a deer hunt, in the course of which he found his dog astride tho dead Ixxly of a deer, whil an Indian stood a little wayofT, bow and arrow in hand. By signs ho made the white man understand thpt he bad. wounded the deer and the dog pulled it down. Then he cut up tho deer, tied the fore half of it up in tho t.kin and placed it on one side. 'I he other half he laid at Maj. Campion's feet, deliver ing himself of a Fpeech in tho L'te lan guage. 1 he white man undc rslood his meaning, but not a word of his address. The Indian and the dog hsd killed the deer together, and the dog's owner was entitled to half the game. The major was equal to the emergency. He rose and delivered in full the classical declamation: ' My name is Norval," with appropriate gestures, just as ho had many times given it at school. Nothing could have been better. The Indian and the white man shook hands with effusion and each with his share of the venison roue away. yuecr History of Somo V"ord. Speaking of the strange, eventful his tory of vords, tho Hartford Courant notes tliat "queen" originally meant simply a woman, but now designates the most glittering placo which tho earth can bestow.wliilo with the slight ly different spelling of "quean" it stands for a woman of a different sort; so, too, "lmavc" at tho start meant only a boy, as in the German form, "knabe;" but as boys go wrong some times the word in time obtained an un pleasant meaning. The word "imp" might have been added as having very much the same history ot "knave," for, meaning, first, a scion or shoot, it next stood for a child, and now it means an inferior devil. Lord Bacon spoke of "those most virtuous and goodly young Imps, tho duko of Suffolk and his brother." 1 lllff Tlpa Going Uut. Tho days of big tips arc said to bo numbered, and in consequence sadness reigns among the waiters in the promi nent hotels and fashionable restaurants of the land. A writer in the New York Commercial Advertiser says: "Where a rich man would give a tip of one dollar he now gives, on ordinary occasions, a quarter of a dollar. And somo even condescend to offer a dime. At first tho waiters used to show by the cold staro on their faces that they did not caro for such a Email tip, but now they take it with a faint attempt at amiability. Where a party, however, has a swell champagne lunch after the theater tho waiter is never tipped less than fifty, cents. lie is not surprised to reccivo ono dollar. A certain. millionaire has a habit of putting the amount of his pour boiro on the corner of the table as soon as he sits down. The waiters do not consider it good form." 13 i ! i I ;
