H Bow It Use Sapplanted tho O0 Ires P
practiao of ineooding.
An important epoch in the career of
Dr. Maillot, a distinguished French Ii
physician, who died in Paris lately at ti
the ago of ninety-nino years, illus- )
trated tho great timidity of medical ve
belence in taking up a new method of u
treatment or abandoning an old one. b<
Dr. Maillot is knoWn to the medical fa
world as the practical introducer into be
French practico of the use of quinine pr
en the treatment of malarial and other an
evers. if
In 1832, when the French were con- of
ducting a campaign of conquest pu
in Algeria, the mortality among )ni
the troops and colonists there was be
frightful, says Pearson's Weekly. ve:
France was being continually called Wi
upon for fresh levies of men and youths bri
to supply this terrible loss, chiefly I
through fever incidental to the cli- fro
mate and the life the French in Al- get
geria were leading. At that timkio the ren
ractice of bleeding still prevailed. wil
'Bleed them until they are white," was fut
the injunction which Broussals, tho coil
medical master of the Frenclh, gavo to mu
his followers when the condition of the pen
soldier was reported to him. At Bone, per
in one year, out of an effectivo force of his
fifty-five hundred men, eleven hidred cei
died of illness in the hospital. rul
At that timo the effects of suilphate to <
of quinine were known, but few phy- til
sicians ventured to employ it. Maillot vii
had interested iniself in the new T1
remedy, and, going to Ione in the sur
medical service of the government, he ary
resolved to see if it would not reduce ma
the frightful mortality, which was one Wi.
to every three and a half men who en- cia
tored the hospital. A ilrst ho eiii- goo
p loyed the quinine meroly its an id
unct to tho bleeding. lIe soon found
that bleeding was cilling tle mien and ison
that quinine was saving them. Little
by olittle 'ho left off bleeding, to the 11
great scandal of the med0(iiCIl profes- ind
sion. Exactly in proportion as the ity
bleeding coased the deItLhs in the 1108- Foi
pital decreased. In two years the heti
deaths fell off from one in three and a doo
half of all who entered tho hospital to out
one in twenty-six, and finally to one in is c
forty-six. ray
Maillot quite naturally enough grew )as,
to be the opponent of bleeding, but h0 Kcg
was so ceaselessly villified by muiemhiers nor
of the medical professioI tht ie h0- a
came embittered toward his colleagues. wa
Nearly thirty years pa.sed before Mail- od,
lot saw the coiplete triumph of his thu
ideas. Doctors continued to bleed their wi
patients heartily for all manner of ills. of
But in 1860 Mlaillot was inado coin- fly
mander of the Legion of Honor and mul
chief of the medical staff of the French to ,
army, and his influence, with others, ate
in bringing about a. virtual revolution ter
in the practice of medicine was fully hgi
recognized. for
And Oysteri foxC 4io Purpose Are Exten- '4
sively Oultltated in Chiioso WVaters. 13
The cultivation of the pearl oyster PI
has for years been carried on with bC
reat success in the bay of Ago, in ca1
Japan, under direction and restriction 11
of governmental supervision. The proc- anl
ess of nature is, however, too slow for na
modern requirements. A Frenhnian ho
has been boring holes in the shells of ab
pearl oysters and introducing therein PN
small glass beads and stopping up the su
holes with coric. In six months lie has
pure surface pearls with a glass founda- F
tion. The nacre of the pearl mollusks No1
varies in color, according to its loca
tion, and almost any color of pearl, as 'j
white, black, pink, or gray, can read- cox
ily be produced by lodging the nucleus sic:
on the appropriato part of the mol- of
husk's body. Thie Chinese are wvonder- Tb
fully expert in the manufacture of to
pearls. They introduce small balls of
earth inside the pearl mussel by very 0
delicately opening the shell and plac- Ir
ing the nuclei under the miouth of the hJi
animal and allowing the shell to closo. ant
This initial process occurs in May or tw
June; the mussels are then deposited Co:
in canals or pools and in November the fum
mollusks arc opened, the pearls re- !tel
moved, holes bored therein, the nuclei ifum
extracted, the hocllowv pearl filled with sti
melted resin and the orifice skillfully ar
filled with mother of pearl. T1heso er
Chinese pearls are flat on the bottom 'car
and are nearly hqmispherical in shape- car
Pearls can be made of almost any d(-0, to:
sired shade or color by chemical means. tio,
The black p earl, for instance, is indcli- Icor~
bly colored ini a bath of nitrate of dil
silver. fan
Pearls being partly of anial sub- but
stance are subject to deterioration and orat
decay, and nione of the famous pecarl~s in
of to-day can be traced back man'y *ro
generations. i

Take down your 1804 almanac an<
after wading through celipso tables
rules for finding the greatest elonga
Lion of polaris, tablo of ember days
etc., you will find a double column ol
#our lines ea0h entitled "Chronological
cycles," says an exchange. The first
thing in that table is this; "(1) Domin.
ical or Sunday letter, G." That tells
you very little, to be sure, but it is
really something valuable in the way
of keeping track of chronology, pro
viding you know how to use it. Find
ing the dominical letter will enable
one to tell what day of the week any
given date in the year is: and, further,
the dominical letter being known for
any one year, can be found for any
other by simply remombering that an
ordinary year has fifty-two weeks and
one day; a leap year fifty-two weeks
and two days.
I The rule is that the letter which falls
against the first Sunday in January
falls against every Sunday in that year,
unless it be a leap year, in which case
there are always two doininical let
ters. The whole problem reverts to a
simple calculation in arithnetlc. To
the number of the year add one-quar
ter of itself (negleotinig fractions) and
divide the same by seven, then, for the
nineteenth century, subtract the ro
mainder from eight, or if it i, 0, from
one, and the now remainder will Indi
cate the placa of the dominical letter
in the alphabet.
For the eighteenth century subtract
from seven; for the ,eventeenth, and
on back to 1582, th - year the Gregorian
ealendar was adopted, subtract from
six, or if the remainder be six, from
thirteen. For dates previous to 1582
subtract from three, or if the remain
der be three, from ten. But the do
ninical letter thus obtained for a leap
yeat belongs only to the time follow
lng February 29, and for the previous
two months it will be for the succeed
ing lotter in tie alphabet. This new
remainder is also the date of the first
Sunday in January for that year.
The same (late in February will fall
on Wednesday; in March on Wednes
dayl in April on Saturday, etc.; a's may
be scen from the fact that the first
days of the twelve muon ths have an
nexed to .them In the calendar the in
itials of the words: "At Dover dwells
George Brown, Esquire, Good Chris
topher Finch and David Friar."
Take this as a sample example; The
day of the week upon which New York
was incorporated, June 12. 10(15, is thus
found: 1605 added to 410, one-quarter
of itself, divided by seven, eqlwls 297,
with a remnindor of two; and it being
in the seventeenth century, six minus
two equals four, which shows that the
dominical letter for that year was the
fourth in the alphabet, or ). Then, as
June bogins with 1, J-une 1, 16435, was
Monday, and June 12 was a Friday.
She Jumps Iler Horn Over a Dinin g
A late sensation in Paris was the re
sult of a novel bot made between two
leading lights-of the fashionable jockey
club n that city. It came about in this
way. 'During a dinner given in honor
of the winner of the grand autumn
races, the guests began to toll stories
of flue horsemanship. An elderly of
ficer present said that he thought the
young mesm of the generation did not
ride so well as they did in the good old
days. This lod to an animated dispute,
which ended by M~ax Lebaudy oil'ering
to bet that lhe kcnew a lady rider that
could do anything with a horse that
any man of this or any othe~r genera
tion had done.
The old officer accepted soo bet, stip
ulating that the lady should ride her
horse into the banquet hall, anid take a
flying leap over the table without dis
turbing or touching the wvine bottles,
flowcrs or any thing else on the table.
Nobody dreamed that the bet wvould
be accepted.
It was done, howvever, and next even
ing, wvh'n the sameo party waus gathered
around the festive boar-d, tihe event
took place. The world famous eques
trienne,Camilla von Wahlburg,miounated
on her favorite full-blooded Arabian
horse, and attired in thme reguar- rid
ing habit, suddenly appeared in: the
door of the dining-room. With a cheery
"Good evening, gentlemen," she gave
the spur to her animal, and, before the
thoroughly surprised and amazed dlin
ers had time to collect their thoughts,
she had been carried over the talo
in the most graceful and approved
fashion by her spirited horse. Not
even the filled wvine glasses were jarred,
and Max won his bet, and the crowd
did homage to and toastedl the dashing
