The Paris Matin says that the
physicians at the Pasteur institute
at Tunis have achieved success with
the new prophylactic method of
' .-tvefing Asiatic cholera. Briefly it
consists of injection of the commas
bacilli found in the intertines of
cholera patients. It is said that the
blood thereby becomes extremely
rich and renders persons immune
from the contagion. Three physi

LARGEST ELECTRIC SIGN.
The largest single electric sign
in the world depicts a baby's face
that alternately smiles and sheds
tears on the crowds that throng
Broadway, New York. The smile is
some twelve feet wide when it
reaches its fullest development and
each individual tear is two feet by
ten inches wide. The sign itself is
5 feet high by 106 feet wide and
contains a total of 9,010 square feet
of space. The child's head is forty
feet high. The sign weighs 80 tons
and contains 4,050 electrie lights.

F DiNE /Fft THE DANCE
German Peasant Wigi Trudge for
Milestin Hot Weather to Enjoy
The German peasant loves his
pipe and his beer, and on a Sunday
afternoon his game of Kegel; but
on high days and holidays he likes
to be dancing. He and she will
trudge for miles to dance at some
distant village inn. You meet them
dressed in their best clothes, walk
ing barefoot and carrying clean boots
and stockings. How they can dance
in tight boots after a long, hot walk
on a dusty road you must be a Ger
man peasant yourself to understand.
The dance I remember best took
place in a barn belonging to a vil
lage inn in Bavaria. I went with
several English friends to look on
at it, and the men of our party
danced with some of the village girls.
The room was only lighted by a few
candles and it was so crowded that
while everyone was dancing everyone
was hustled. But we were told that
anyone who chose could "buy the
floor" for a time by giving sixpence
or a shilling to the band. - Two of
the Englishmen did this and the
crowd looked on in solemn approval

Vouched for by Grouch.
A couple of old grouches at the
Metropolitan club in Washington
were one night speaking of an old
friend who, upon his marriage, took
I up his residence in another city. One
of the grouches had recently visited
the old friend, and, naturally, the
other grouch wanted news of the

VARIETIES OF EELS.
There is the broad nose eel, and
hen again there is the sharp nose
eel. The great difference between
these two varieties is that the broad
nosed eel is the male and the sharp
nosed eel is the female, both being
really of one and the same family.
When summer comes young eels by
the millions schoot from midocean

at sea young eels are as clear as
lass and as thin as ribbon. They
are about four inches long, with a
little head. The young eel seems
not to eat at sea and only loses its
glassy look and becomes colored as
it gets to shore within reach of a

MORE ON THE BREAD QUESTION.
Because the coarser-grained breads
are less easily digested-or possibly
not so completely digested-is not,
of itself, sufficient to condemn them.
Many of the foods most difficult to
digest give us the greatest amount
of nourishment. Whcn you weigh
the one over against the other, the
argument will, after all, be in favor
of the coarser foods-the foods con
taining the greatest amount of nu

I wish now that it had been an hour

The rate at which some birds can
migrate under favorable conditions
is extraordinary, and as one listens
to their plaintive cries coming from
the darkness overhead it is difficult
to realize that in a few hours these
same birds may be within the arctic
circle and little later ,may be even
crossing the pole itself. . . . Less
is known of the actual dates of the
departure of the migratory birds in
autumn than of those of their arrival

They came from Leipzig, and are on

Heine: "God gave us two legs to

Switzerland they go to Italy, Aus
