may also give rise, to tho practice ol
Dr. Wagner tells us that habitual
mouth breathers can bo at onoo recog
nised, as the practice stamps itself in
delibly on the physiognomy, Tho re
tracted lips, open mouth, reooding
gums, protruding teeth, diminished
size of tlio ori liens of tho nostrils, tho
wrinkles of the outer angles of tho eves,
ami the linos oxlending trom the wings
of the nose to tho angles of the mouth,
gives the persons addicted to this habit
a silly, and, sometimes, idiotic expres
sion. The nasal ducts, being vacated,
liko dimmed roads that grovv Jip to
grass aiid weeds, become the seat of
polypus ami other diseases; the sense
of smell Is greatly weakened or alto
gether lol; tho contour of the nrwj in
changed, and it nciuiros an unde
veloped or atrophic appearance. The
sense of hearing may Ijo aflected, tho
Injury ranging from slight impairment
to total deafness through habitual
month breathing. According to Cas
sclls tho air must pass through tho
nose, otherwise it can not reach the
tympanic cavity. Dry sore throat is
one of the most distressing diordcrs re
sulting from tho habit under discussion.
The practice known as "hawking" is a
familiar symptom of this trouble Tho
hawker is always a mouth breather,
and tho unpleasant sound is made, in
Ilia effort to dislodgo tho hard, dry and
tenacious mucus from tho pharynx and
posterior wall of tho mouth. In all
coses whero the habit is caused by nasal
obstruction, thero is a voico disturb
ance, an imperfect resonance from tho
air or tone which passes upward into
the nas',1 cavity, but linding no outlet
there, returns and escapes through tho
mouth, tho individual then being said
to speak through his nose. Tho dis
agreeable habit of snoring is caused by
sleeping with the mouth open. Tho
nose breather novcr snores.
In chiUlro.11, as might be expected, tho
effects of mouth breathing on the gen
eral constitution aro strongly marked.
Dr. Wagner has no doubt that in in
fancy and early youth, when the bones
of the thorax are soft and flexible, tho
deformity known as "pigeon breast" is
brought about by this habit. Children
should bo sedulously taught to use the
mouth for eating and speaking only,
and tho author recommends that, dur
ing idocp, those in charge of them
should adopt tho practice followed by
lnd'tin squaws of closing an infant's
mouth by gently pressing the lips to
gether, l'eople of mature age also need
to be impressed with the necessity of
persistence in tho practice of nose
breathing. For those who aro addicted
to keeping tho mouth open for breath
ing during sleep only, it is suggested
that compulsory closure may bo suc
cessfully carried out by means of a
linen or leather support for tho lower
Jaw, adjusted to tho lop 01 tho heaa.

" Tnero is nothing in tho paper,"
said a young friend, dashing It to the
floor. " No news at all; it's miserable,
stupid.' Look again, my dear friend,
at tho carefully-printed columns, the
different headings, foreign, home and
domesliu news, the wit and humor.
Think, for a moment, when you gaso
at it, how tho editor has tried to please
you. There is probably no class of men
more overworked than these, no labor
more wearing than mental labor. It is
so easy to cry out: "Nothing in the pa
per," for thoso who know htllo of the
drudgery, the painstaking, the hours
of mental weariness, the tedious com
positions. It is a common thing for
11 person, when not exactly suited, to
exclaim: "Thero is nothing in tho pa
tier." In a railroad car I onco ob
served two gent lumen purchase copies of
the same edition of a paper. Duo soon
handed his to a neighbor, exclaiming:
" Here, (sum, havo tho morning paper.

ently the man by his side asked him
what interested him so mu.-h. "Kvory
thing; the paper is well gotten up

pleases one does not suit tho other, lie
assured it is no child's play to edit and

ous, important, responsible position,
and tho man who manages a well-circulated,
iwicfaetory newspaper has al
most tho wisdom of a Solomon, l.ot
those who doubt tako the editor's place
for a while; nothing more is needed

Tte Sailor Who Cvuld Measure the
A good story, told at tho expense of
a well-known cx-Judgp, is going the
rounds of the lawyers olllees, and it
is heartily appreciated by thoso who
best know the irascible but good-hearted
disposition of the old gentleman.
It was nu admiralty case, where he is
most tit home. The deposition of a
sailor, who was soon to die, had to bo
taken at his bed-side in Brooklyn, ono
day lost week. "How long," the ex
Judgo snnpped out as tho tirst question
on cffiss ex uu-natic, "do yon think il
was alter the rossel left tho wharf be
foro tho collision occurred."
Tho cailor was himself something of a
character, and not so near death but
thai he appreciated tho vital importance
of "getting back on" a cross-examining
"Waal," ho drawled out, "'bout ten
minutes I s'd judgo."
" Ten minutes! Ten minutosr' ex
claimed tho lawyer, jumping up.
" Man, how long do you think ten min
utes to bo?"
"Jest 'bout ten minutes," waa tho
tin milled reply.
' How do you generally measure ten
minutosP" insisted the lawyer.
The old sailor turned sloVly in boil
and eyed his quostlonor. Then ho
turned back again and said, Indillcrcnt
ly; "Waal, sometimes wid a watch and
sometimes wid a ciaack." '
This made the lawyer a little mad
lie jerked his watch from his pocket
and said, in a qu ulous, high-pitrhed
voice: "Oh, you do, do you? Well,
I'll tell you when to begin, and you tell
mo when ten minutes are up."
The Bailor slyly winked at tho lawyer
on the other side, and he took in tho
situation in an instant and made no ob-
(ection. Tho ex-Judge stood with his
tack to a mantel on which a little clock
was quietly indicating the time to the
sailor, who lay facing it
" Avn ivn ' tlio ufiilnr afifd. noil rn.
After three minutes had passed tho
ex-Judgo became impatient and ex
claimed: "Seo here, are you goiug to
keen us hore all day ?" liut tho sailor
made no answer. As fivo ami six and
seven minutes went by the lawyer be
came almost wild in his assumed anger
at tho man for keeping them so long
beyond tho time. Hut not until tho
hand of tho clock was on tho exstct
notch of ten minutei did the sailor
speak. Then ho laid, carelessly:
"Ciuess the time mus' bo 'bout up."
The Judgo put up his watch and sank
in his hair. " Well," ho said, " of all
tho men, dying or tlive, that I ever
saw, you can measure time tho best."
It is said that the ex-Judgo does not
even yet know what mado tho other
lawyers donblo themselves over with
laughter as they did at that last remark
of his. .V. Y. Tribune.
