The duke of Cambridge , writes the London correspondent of the Now York World , is one ot the most noticeable fig ures in the royal circleof England. I had a front scat within a few fool of the platform where all of the royalties wore assembled upon the occasion of the lay ing of the corner-stone of the Jubilee in stitute , and so had a good opportunity for inspecting the notables who were present on that occasion. The duke ol Cambridge very much resembles General Sherman in his inability to remain quiet for any length of time. He was con tinually rushing about , and from the beginning to the close of the ceremo nies ho did not once sit down. This nominal commandor-in-oliiof of the English army is very tall , lie is over six feet in height , but thora is a slight sloop in his shoul ders which detracts from his military bearing. His head is largo nnd nearly bald ; the little hair which he has left is combed in thin gray wisps over the top of his tapering skull. About the base of his nock his imir is still qulto thick ; his forehead is full and lined with wrinkles ; his eyebrows are bushy and beetling , standing out like a thick hedge round n pair of blue , good-natured looking eyes. His check bonus are high nnd red. His nose is large , bulging and very irregular In shupo. It is not an aristocratic none. I have scon genial London oabmon with similar noses cabmen who hud been exposed - posed to the weather for many years. A pale , iron-gray mustache anil thick , close-cropped side whiskers set oil the broad , full face of the duke. His chin is double. He wore on this occasion a akin-tight , flaming scarlet full dross coat. There was very little gold lace upon the coat. A heavy gold orna mented bolt encircled his ponderous tig- tire. A light blue sash orer his left boulder Blood out in striking contrast against the scarlet background of the coat. Pink skin-tight breeches met hia high patent-leather boots at the knee ; a black cocked hat with a white plume he carried under his left arm. I constantly hoard friendly comments from English admirers of the duko. Said ono : r'Oli , be is so h'auablu. " The fact that thh distinguished parsonage could smile was constantly dwelt upon us a proof of hi ; most remarkable amiability. * % The MarquiH of Salisbury , the prime minister , who stood at the head of th < group of ministers near the royalties , was looking very tired and worn. Ho ii aid to be very much wcrricd over the po litical situation and he is beginning U feel that power is slipping away froir him. He is about the same lijrure as tlu Duke of Cambridge ; ho is equally tall equally stout and tins about the aami stoop in his shoulders. He ha1 thn strong , sleepy features o a man of power the unmistakabli countenance of a statesman. His head i Tory round and full ; he is even mon bald than the Uuku of Cambridge. In deed , it is the exception where an Kng liih public man is not bald very early ii life. Of all the royalties grouped to getbor on the day of this Institute then was not a single man who had a goot crop of hair on the top of his head. Thi Murqtils of Salisbury has a heavy , pen dcrous look of fatigue- and indiderencu His face only lights up in a sluggish wr : " when he is engaged in1 conversation. Hi" complexion is quite sallow for tin Eng llahman. He has a very broad , full fore bead , deeply sot dark eyes , n straigh nose , a broad , full faoo , the lower part o which is concealed by a silky , browi beard nnd mustucho. Underneath hi eyes he has the full , putl'y look indi cative of volubility in speech. Th lines underneath his eyes are very deep There Is a bluish tinge underneath th lids signs of fatigue and worry. All o the cabinet ministers were in uniform This uniform is very handsome and 1m coming. The coat is military cut , svith : high standing collar. This collar is bro catlcd with a hoary gold or aranfti | flcuro. The coat is buttoned with a sin clo row of gold buttons as snugly nbou the Hguro as the uniform of a Lit Guardsman. The cuffs on the sleeve are ornamented in the sauio way as th collar. Ou the hips there are Haps indi eating pockets. Those * Haps arc covorei with gold ornamentations , iiroad got stripes follow the line , of the tiowini wide trousers. This uniform , from It and dark color , is very bccon ng. The various members 'of the C.ibl- let were upon the breasts of their coats the ordon to winch they Were entitled. kV A similar style of court dress is worn > y a largo number of the civil olliclals of .ho government. Indeed , every olllclal tnprovcs an npporttinity to cut the black evening dress otdinarily worn in private life. They retain in Jr.nghi.id in every ) osslblo way the picturesque dress of the > ast. The heralds and the knights who ircccded the queen upon tno , occasion I lave just mentioned were dressed ex actly as they were 800 years ngo. The advocates , tlio high Irw-court omccrs of of England , wear to-day upon all olllclal occasions the dross of several centuries ago. The barristers who plead before : ho courts wear the wig and gown of the last. They adhere to this additional ln\ss with the most remarkable tenacity. I have asked numbers of the legal pro- cssion if they do not object to wearing hcse wigs and gowns. Their reply has been in tlio negative , saying that they would nol upon any account give lliem up. This relonlion of all of Ihe pictur esque costumes of Iho past adds great in terest to the general elluct of nearly every iiiblic gathering from the spectacular and artistio point. T. C. UUAAVFOKU. IRRIGATION IN ARIZONA. I'ltun IMnilo to lllootii Like n I'nradlac , * St. Lniiit Olrjtymocrat. . Judge James 11. Wright , of Prcscott , A. T. , Uhiof Justice of the Territory , ar rived in the city last night and registered nt the Lacledc. In answer to n question of a ( tlobe-Deinourat reporter concern ing the mining prospects of Arizona Judge Wright said : "Tho prospect is brighter to-day than It has been for tov- eral years ; in fant , the outlook never was so favorable. The Vulture - turo mine , thirty miles from Pros- cotl , has commenced operations , nnd will produce more copper than over be fore. This mine Is probably the richest in the world. Larga additions have rec ently been made to the working capital , and the outmtt will probably be trebled. A largo amount of eastern capital has lately been invested in gold and silver properties near Prescott , and those who have purchased are very confident of largo returns. Three or four weeks ago oudge Ulodgett , of Chicago , and Colonel Fordycc , of St. Louis , were in Prescott for the purpose of examining the Etta mine , a cold property near the Vulture , nnd I understand that the mine has been purchased within a week .or two , and that work will bo at oneo commenced. " "how about the general condition of the territory , Judge Wright ? " "Few people have any idea of Ihe great increase in population and production that has taken place within the last three years. The I'htunlx , 100 miles south of Prescott. may bo taken as an instance. Three years ago there was simply a straggling village there. Colonel Clark Churchill , of Arkansas , formerly attorney general of the territory , conceived the idea that the vallev of the Salt river , in which Plurnix is situated , might be made a great agricultural region. Ho sue- cce ed in interesting a number of caui- tnlisits in the scheme , nnd formed a company called the Arizona Canal com pany. This company commenced work on the Verdi river , seventy-live miles nway , and diverted the entire stream to the Salt river valley. The canal was completed two yours ago , and worked a complete change in that district. A sandy plain 400,000 acres in extent was changed into the most fertile region I over saw. Splendid wheat is raised , at least five crops of alfalfa hay are cut an nually , an orange grove haabeon started , a largo number of fig trees have been planted and are now producing magnifi cent fruit , and they are growing a better raisin grape than ever Los Angeles can show. The land is worth from $40 to $000 per acre , and the projectors of the canal have made fortunes. > rom a mere hamlet Phrenix has grown to bo n city of 0,000 inhabitants , and within a few years I expect to sco 50.000 people living in the Salt river valley. " "Are other sections equally prosper ous ! " At present Phcenix is the most nour ishing town in the territory , but I expect to see other places follow In its footsteps before long. The great problem to be solved by tlio peopln of Arizona is the water question. A number of romuanics have been formed within the past year for the purpose of boring artesian wnlls on a largo scale. A still more important movement in Ihe direction of building great reservoirs for irrigating purposes has been set on foot within the last few months , and is backed with ample capital to give the sehemo a full and fnir trial. The idea is to build dams across certain water courses , and keep tlio water , that falls in great quantities during the months of July and August , for the irrigating season. If necessary these reservoirs will bo roofed over to protect them from the sun , nud all who have examined the matter express the utmost faith in the success of the plan. Work has already been commenced near Prescott , as well as at several other places , and if the scheme proves to be a success , the future of Arizona is assured. Judge Wright will remain in the city until Sunday next , when tie will return to Prescott , accompanied by bis family. Pozzoni s Complexion Powder pro Uii cos a soft and beautiful skin.

Isaac Kinley in Popular Soiencn Monthly : The cause of the saltness of some American lake * is too patent to re quire many words of explanation. It is possible that , whoo the continents wore raised from the sea , the lake-basins had been alread formed and cauuio up , there fore , briwful ot water. In the northern and eastern part of the continent , where the water supply from ruin and snowfall exceeds the loss by evaporation , the salt being continuously carried away through their outlets , has become so diluted as tc bo as imperceptible quantity , in arid regions , as the Pu cilic slope and the country about the Caspian , whore the evaporation was in excess of the supply , the water level of the lakes continuously sank until , on account of the diminished extent of sur face , the cqailibrium of loss and gain was attained. Hcnco the oxcueding saltiness of Great Salt lake , the Dead sen , etc. Foi a like reason the water of the Medittorrsv ne'an contains more salt relatively than that of the ocean. Evaporation exceed ing the supplies from the rivers and rainfalls , it requires a constant current through the Strait of Gin- r altar. The same is true of the Hod sou , causing a like current throug h ths Strait of Hob-ol-Mandcb Other stilt or brackish lakes iirobablj owe their witness to the supplies from the land. Water being the moit general of all solvents , the rains gather up the chloride of sodium from the soils nnd the disintcrgrating rooks , and where tin ! streams fall into lakes whoso only outlel is evaporation , the land itsnlf must ha a constant source of fallne supply , ant ! their milt waters mnit becointi nnro and more salt , until their capacity as a sol vent has been roaohct , . The Utnri basin must once have been lillcd to the brim with ocean water. The outlet h.-is been evaporation. The lake , rmidinto its present level , has lefl many evidences of its former extent.

" , 13th um THE HEALTH GIVING BATH , How nnd Where to Enjoy the Luxury Given to Eicli and Poor Alike , THE EFFECTIVE ' 'COLD PACK. ' Dathcra With Vivid Imaginations Tlio Origin of tlio Unth-Tlio riutijce Shower Interesting Instructions. St. Louis Globe-Democrat : When Iho surface of the body is exposed to the action of a lluid or gas with which it is not ordinarily in contact , or when unus ual conditions are present , n bath is said lo bo taken. Hence water , vapor and hot or cold air balhs are among those in ordi nary use , while oil , milk , wlnoand llutds variously medicated have been employed for bathing. The cll'ccts piodttcod by baths are brought about by modifying the temperature of the skin and , through that , of the blood and enliro body , and various ell'ects upon the nervous systum , many of thorn , doubtless , through the modilications of temperature just re ferred lo , but also by btlnnilalion or sooilung ollccls cxcrlod upon Iho nerve oudlngs in Iho skin , whence the ccnsory effects are transmitted to the grcal ner vous centers in the spinal cord nnd brain. The akin serves two extremely impor tant purposes : It protects the internal parts against external injury , and by means ot the perspiration thrown out by the innumerable sweat glands , it acts as the great regulator of the tomperaluro of the entire systum. Under ordinauy condilions about thirty ounces of lluid are cvaporaled from the surface , and this consists almost exclusively of water. Under Ihe inlltienco of certain drugs , or of dry heat applied to the surface , Ihi.s amount may be greatly exceeded even rising to two , three or more pounds within ii fuw hours. When the kidnovs are not in good working order the skin may take their place ; to some degree , in removing poisonous waste products from the body. In health tlwro is little ma terial of lliis kind thrown out by the sink about liajf an ouneu .19 a daily average. The skin is provided with glands which furnish an oily substance which keeps the the external surface pliable and not liable lissures. This , when mixed with perspi ration and particles of dust and the small amount of organic matters before mentioned , soon decomposes and becomes - comes more or less irritating , as well as odorous. The surface is composed of hard , dry scales ( epithclibni ) , which are continually being shed and replaced by new ones ; Ihoso mix with the other mat ters referred to , nnd contribute to iin- cleanliness of person and to nituto the o subslancos irritating lo tlio integument and , as a natural consequence , a most potent factor in exciting disease in this protective covering. Animal and veget able parasites find in an unwashed skin the situations best suited lo their growth and development. tt'ATEU BATH * . The use of baths of hot or warm water was at first probably , for Ihe .sake of personal cleanliness. Amonir Iho an cient ( Jroeks and Romans , who gave great attention to physical culture , theio balhs were brought to croat perfection. They also understood the tonic uttoets of the cold bath , and the bcnolicial results lo bo had from Iho hot bath in some dis eases. The savage , ancient or modern , regards not cleanliness , and man must make some progress toward civilization before ho appreciates Iho benefits of the bath from any point of view. If the sav- ngo over employs a bath of an kindy il is with an idea of producing some ell'ect upon an evil spirit to be dislodged from the body of the bather. Hence the more horribly disgusting and ollensivo the sub- sUmco dissolved in the "medicine" bath , the better for the success of the primitive practitioner. Some of the wise lawgivers ers among the Oriental nations have con ceived such a high opinion of the efficacy of the bath that they have enjoined upon the people the daily practice of bathing , and fixed it lirmly by making it a religious ceremony : This is an import ant part of the cult of Islam and has probably had considerable to do with the succe.s of that religion. If the follower of the Prophet cannot obtain water lor his daily ablutions , he must expose his skin to the aclion of the sand of the des ert , or at least to the dry wind which blows over these wastes. In the use of water for balhing pur poses , the temperature of the bath is of the very greatest importance. The ca pacity for heat displayed by water is not equaled by any substance known. The ellVcla of withdrawing heat from tha body are most marked. When the heat is rapidly reduced far below lhat of health 09.4 degrees Fiircnhcit. the ef fects arcs comparable only with those of mechanical violeuco. When the heat developed in the body is not permitted to ct-capo , or when it is increased to any great extent , the results arc fully as dis astrous. Tor practir-al purposes , then , the bath in water without any attention to what it may contain in solutmn- to bo re garded from thn standpoint of tempera ture. If the water is at a temperature anywhere helow CO degrees P. , it is to bo considered as "cold ; " from CO to 75 de grees it is "cool ; " from 75 to 85 negroes His "temperate ; " from 8.1) to 03 degrees it is "tepid ; " from 02 to 03 degrees ilia "warm , " and if it bo over 98 degrees , it is a "hot bath. " Sometimes the "gradu ated bath" is recommended ; this means a bath at 00 to 100 degrees into which the bather enters , nnd the temperature of which is gradually lowered , by the addition of cold water , to the extent of 25 or SO degrees in the course of half an hour. There aio b number of varieties of bath at each temperature. Thus , if the entire body is submerged , it is a full bath ; if the feet only are Immersed , it is a foot bath , etc. Sponging the entire surface is an easy and convenient means of securing most of the advantages of the full bath , while the trouble of the latter expense alf > o ) , is avoided. If cold water is used , the skin is stimulated and the nervous system receives all the tonic ofTccts lo bo had from bathing. The shower-bath is still more ( stimulating to the nerves and skin. If it is cola , there may bo considerable risk of doing in jury. This is true of all forms of "cold" baths. No ono with degenerated hearts or arteries should incur the dangers of the cold "full" or "shower bath. " The first effect of the application of cold to the skin is to cause a sudden contraction of the small blood-vessels , thus driving Mie blood in upon the central organs. An additional strain is thus placed upon the vessels of the lutigs. brain , in fact , of the whole interior department. If their walls have been weakened by dis ease , they may give way , apoplexy or rupture of an aneurism may follow Iho injudicious application of cold bathing. In infanta nnd the aged , reaction docs not readily follow the external applica tion of cold. If tlm roost vigorous indi vidual plungc.s into water at GO to 40 ° or lc. s , the Um eO'tict is to cause a shock to the entire system , the blood leaves the surface , which becomes cold and blue , the skin shrinks , the breath is drawn spasmodically ami in many there is a tendency toward "cramping" or spasm , in the muscles. The temperature of the entire body rapidly falls sometimes nearly 10 ° , as shown by the thermome ter in the mouth. If the individual re mains a.few minutes in the bath , especi ally if he makes active muscular move ments , as in swimming , the condition ol shock passes elf and the temperature rises nearly to tlio point of ordinary health. If movements are not made , if Iho temperature is Milt further reduced bodily heat occurs , and with it a fooling of great exhaustion. It has been noticed that in cases of shipwreck tlioso wl\usu \ bodies were kept submerged outlived tltoso exposed to al ternate wetting and drying , if the bath is left during the first stage of reaction , or before this occurs undlictivo oxorolso with friction of Hie surface so as lo bring Ihe blood and heat back to the surface , be practiced , then the cold balh is ant lo do much good * If reacllon , the glow of surface -.luid . active opening out of the blood vcasuli of the skin do not promptly occtir jf chilly feeling with repeated shivering1 ; arc , found to follow cold balhing , it is doing harm and should bo abandoned. This form of balhing should never bo resorted to when the body is exhausted and losing heat by evaporation of the pcrspiralion. It does no harm , rather is useful in preventing "catching cold"when taken in the shape of a cold plunge or shower , when the body Is overcharged with heat from tlio Turkish or Russian bath , or iu fevers , Of course , in such cases care must betaken taken not to reduce the temperature much below that of health. THI : COLD uATir. The best time for the cold balh , when taken habiltially , Is in the morning while Iho body is blill warm from the bed. A momentary plunge , spoiling of the sur face , or shower , followed uy brick fric tions with the llcsh brush or rough towel , ncls as a line tonic upon those who road promptly from the chill. All others should content themselves with Iho "cool" bath 00 ° to 76 ° F. The effects of the cool b.ith are exactly Iho same as those jusl describedonly not so severe. It forms a good introduclion lo ll'.u cold balh for Ihoso who find it de sirable lo undergo a process of harden ing. The temperature should bo very gradually reduced , and care should bo taken to secure prompt and full reac tion , otherwise even Iho cool balh may do damage. Sea bathing should nol bo Inkcn if Iho weather Is bulow IX ) degrees F. The salts dissolved in sea water amount lo about ono ounce lo Iho quart , and add a stimu lation tollie nerves of the skin not to bo obtained from fresh-water bathing. The dash of waves , the muscular exertion nocesiary to preserve Iho balance and lo resist Iho movements of thu water , add gro'illy lo Hie stimulating or rather tonic elVecls'of sea bathing Auoul three hours after meals Is thu best time to take a pea bath , and ealing should not bo in dulged in until full reaction is secured after the bath. ( Joel and cold baths are among the meal valuable of the means at our com mand in the treatment of fover.s of all kinds. Thu high temperature adds enor mously to the dancer of these discuses. In pneumonia , typhoid , typhus , and the eruptive fevers the reduction of tempera ture is one ot the objeels to be attained by treatment. Cold sponcing of the en tire surface can be applied to any case , m matter how great the weakness , with out risk of adding to the exhaustion. It the cold bath is usi/jOt / is well to first give a liltlo wine or _ liiiiuted brandy or whisky before placing a weak patient in the balh. The Iotnp7ul'aluro nhould bo watched by means oftlu ; thermometer m the mouth , and when reduced to the natural degree ( US.4 dfCrees ) , the patient should be removed and brisk rubbing of the .surface .should be kepi up iiulil warmth returns. It sfioiild be remem bered thai it is impossible lo''catch cold" as long as fever is present. This is a bugbear - boar of great proporllcms llial has often aroused strong opposition to the use of this most important of measures lo com bat fever. Thn "cold pack" h ( a very effective way of securing moat Of the bcnelits of the cold bath in fevers. The mode of applying it is as follows : A shoot is wrung out of cold water tlio colder the better and spread upbn a smooth mat tress. The patient , divested of all rai ment , is placed upon this , the arms folded and the lower limbs close together. The sides of the sheet are then carefully wrapped about the limbs , HO that oppos ing surfaces are separated. One or two comforts or a light feather bed should then cover all securely. The chill of the surface is soon followed by full reaction ; thu heat of the body is promptly carried away , and a feolinp of comfort and lan guor succeeds which is very soothing , bleep may. be secured in this way for the maniac , the patient delirious witli fever , or the victim of insomnia , after failure of the moat poworf ul narcolics. If Iho object is simply to reduce the tempera- lure , Iho "pack" should DO repealed as soon as reaclion has fully doveloucd in about lifteon minutes. Four "wet- sheet packs" are about as effective as ono "full" cold bath. In some cases the cold bath does not secure the required reduction of fever. The oold seems to drive the superheated blood away from the surface , and this without cooling anything more lhan a little of it nearest the surface. In these the "wet pack , " or even the warm bath , acts very well , by bring ; the circulating lluid to the surtaco , where it can part with its heat by radiation. When cold applications fail to do good this nractical point should bo remembered. The "graduated bath" is especially suited to reducing the tem perature when it does not run very high , especially if the patient is rather weak and does not appear ablu to sustain the shock of the cool or cold bath. If decided chilliness is induced , it should bo discon tinued and brisk frictions be used until reaction is fully established. If reaclion should be brought about with dillictilty , as may happen when robust persons have been plunged in cold water for un usual periods in cold weather , for in stance , warm applications should be made to the extrometios and to the "pit of the stomach , " and brisK frictions made over the entire surtaco. The warm ( not hot ) bath is also of much service in dangerous chilling of the bociy. Individuals who are too weak to endure the shock of tlm cool or cold bath may secure many of thn tonic baths of cither by using the "cold air bath. " The air should be dry and ptire _ ; the clothing re moved , and exorcise bo taken with dumb-bells or the Indian clubs , while sunlight , if it can be had at the sumo time , adds to the tonic influence. The tonic effects of cold are of great value , but care must alwaysha * taken that the matter is not overdone , otherwise harm will result. ' ' " TEl'ID AND WARM BATHS. The topld bath is a1 uelicious restora tive after prolonged fatigue , such as a journey. It is soothta * lo the nervous system and cleansing to the skin. Homer tolls us that the old Greeks treated their guests to the tepid balh nd rubbing the skin with some bland oil after Iho balh was thought a plcasan SWcl to the lat ter. t < > , i The warm bath is that most employed , with a viw to its modicjnal action. The effects are soothing to the nervous sys tem and also to the skjTitsolf. relieving many disagreeable sensations connected with various skin diseases. The warm bath may bo "medicated" in a variety of e ways. An acid bath may contain ono and ono-half ounces pf strong nitric acid , with ono ounce of strong muriatic acid , to tnirty gallons of walcr. This nitro-muriatic acid balh is supposed to bo useful in diseases of the liver , but this is doubtful ; il is of benefit in some forme os eczema , urticaria ( "nettle rash" ) , and of her skin affections marked by inlolora btfci itching. Other cases are bonolittod by the alcalmo bath , containing foui ounces of carbonate of soda , or carbon ate of potash , to thirty gallons of warn : water. Uorax , two ounces , and one-hall pound of starch , in each alkaline bath , are thought to make it still more sooth ing to the system and softening to the skm. skm.Tho warm sulphur bath is dccidcdlj stimtilating.bosidcs-acting us a specific In tha parasitic skin disease called the Itch. It mhy bo made by dissolving four ounces of sulphurated potash ( liver of sulphur ) in thirty gallons of water. The bathtub shculd bo of wood and the stay In the bath should bo thirty miuulcs. The natural sulphur waters nro useless for this special form of bath , because none ol tliein conlains enough sulphur lo wake It elfuctlve as a destroyer ol the itch insect. The warm bath is sometimes modified by the addition ot mult or bran which makes Ihom rallicr more soothing , or by pine Iroo needles ( loaves ) or her.Jj like chumomilo , mini , calamus , clover blos soms , etc. . which make them more slim- ulaling. In some condilions Ian bark , four to six pounds to the bath , may bo used ; tlm tannin set free in thn water has an astringent ell'ect , desirable in some skin diseases. Or ground mustard , three to six ounces lo Ihe balh of thirty gallons lens may bo used to increase Iho filiimi- lal'.tig ' clfucl. The nitislard bath should bo used with caution in cases of infantile diseases , like convulsions , etc. , or the irriiallon of Iho skin may be carried too far , and Iho ultimata cll'eets of the balh prove more harmful lhan llio original disease. Common salt is a good nntlsafo addition lo Iho balh , when it Is thought well to increase its stimulating ulfects ; one or two pounds may be added to the bath of thirty gallons , less foi iufanls or very fceblo adults. BATHS IN GHNEllAL. The "son-bait" has so-ctillod natural - no properties which make it preferable lethe the common sail of the shops for bathing purposes. The bog , peat or mud bath is simply a warm bath to which swamp mud lias been added. Such a mixture istirob- ably a little more stimulating than the ordinary steam bath , nnd may produce some effect through the medium of Iho imagiuulion nol to bo had from the balh of clear waler. Some cases of paralysis ( hysU'rlcal ? ) a 'o reported as having baen rapidly cured by the bog or peal bath. The warm sulphur balh has also homo repulation in Ihe treatment of paralysis , especially from lead poisoning or from the ill effects of mercury. Chronic rheumatism is occasionally helped by any of ihe forms ot warm bath men tioned. Hot baths increase the amount of pcr- suirnlion and raise Iho heat of the body. Whun given the , head should bo kepi cool iiiul iho slay not bo prolonged. Rapid cooling , by a plunge into cold water , or by the cold "shower , " after the hot bath , is desirable. It prevents "catchingcold,1' prevents too much depression. Tne hot air or Turkish bath is Iho best way of obtaining Iho advan tages of the hot bath. The mint may bo carried high to 125 or 150 degrees , or oven 200 Fahrenheit without harm , so long as Iho uir is dry and the head is kept cool. This is thu best form of bath for the victims of Hright's disease , or any alfectiou in which it is necessary to increase the skin's action. The heat must not bo carried very high if Ihe heart apd arteries have become dam aged , as is sure lo be tlio case In the lalesl slages of chronic kidney diseases. Thn cold plunge should succeed Iho Turkish balh , when the body is prespir- ing freely because of active exercise just taken or from exposure lo a high ex ternal temperature , a sudden chilling of the surface deus no harm. The Roman youth used to plunge into the Tiber when bathed in porspiralion following athlectic exercise and no harm followed Iho procccuuro , but Alexander the Great nearly lost his life from a plunge into Iho icy Uyanus after an exhausting march. The Russian or vapor bath produces nearly the sumo effects as thai of hoi air , but the temperature must not be above 110 o to 130o F. Vapor confines the heat ; does not convoy it away like hot , dry air. Hut the effects of increasing the aclion of the sweat-glands and raising the body heat are like those pro duced by the full hot water or hot air baths. The vapor bath , iu which the body is enclosed in a box or cabinet , or covered by blankets , while the head is not subjected to Iho aclion of the vapor , makes a more comfortable nnd just as olfecltve a "steam bath" as the most elaborate Russian bath house can fur nish. Frictions , kneading of the mus cles , etc. , form useful adjuncts to all forms of the hot-air and vapor baths. The body , or any part thereof , may bo covered with warm or hot sand. A higher heat can be applied in Ihis way lhan by hoi water or steam. The hot sand balh Is suuposed lo be generally useful in chronic joint diseases of rhcu- malic origin. The clcclric balh was at ono limn ex- peeled lo do wonders , but fnw have faith" that it will accomplish moro than can be had from Ihe use of electricity and baths separately. There seem to bo no speoial advantages to bo secured from a combin ation of the two. A Komerty Per Chills nnd Fever. RoonnsTiut , N. Y. , Dec. 10,1885. Four years ago I contracted a hard cold that settled on uiy lungs. I had a severe chill , followed by high fever , raging headache , pain on my left side over the lung , and every time a fit of coughing came on , which was every few minutes , it was terrible to bear the pain. I thought it meant nn attack of pneumo nia , as I went through a two-months siege of that disease , and it came on just thu same way. As it was nighl I lliought I would wait until morning before send ing for a doolor Forlunaloly , a half- box of ALLCOOK'S Pouous PLASTKIIS was found in the possession of a friend who boarded with us. One ot these was put on my throal , two on my chest , and ono on my back over the loft shoulder blade. I then had a hoi foot-bath. After again getting into bed , it seemed but a few minuted when all my symptoms were re lieved ; the skin became quite moist ; I coughed only at intervals , and then wilh very little clforl , and in about an hour I was in a sound sleep , from which I din not awake until morning , I resumed business in two days. H. F. FLUTCIIKU. Clears From Stnmps. Boston Herald : " 'Snipo' hunting , sonny ? " asked a reporter , about 4 o'clock yesterday morning of a boy who had stooped and picked up something out of the street in front of the Boston and Main railroad station. "No ; I'so spicking 'bulls , ' " replied Ihe yeungslcf. "Well , you call that 'snipe' hunting , don't you ? " said the Herald man. "Somo of the boys call 'em 'snipes,1 ' ' . ' " bull calls'em'bulls. The boy was an Italian , about nine years of age , and while talking to the re porter , was industriously storing away cigar stumps , picked up from the gutter , in a bag mndo of ticking ; which hung on his left arm by a long tnpn. The bag would hold perhaps two Cquarts , and the lad , at that early hour , had it about one- third tilled. "What do you do with the stumps ? " 'Isells 'em. " "Soil them , to whom ? " "To a man who makes cigars of Vm. Ho gives mo 25c for this bag full. Some times when I gets nice long ones ho gives me 5c moro. Ila cuts 'am up and puts'em iusido good cigars"said Ihe youngster , probably meaning that his employer used them for'tilling wilh first- class tobacco for wrappers. "Do you fill that bag every morning t" "Oh , yes ! 1 tills it twice , and some times after holidays like Ihe Fourth of July , I could lill it n Imlf a do/.cn timrs. bul then I lake a bigger bag. I makes t < " or $ In week iu the summer time , nnd gees to school , too , when school keeps , but in the wintertime you can't get many 'bulls , ' 'cent when there's no snow on the ground. "Tnc man has lots of boys working for him and ho buys all wo can bring him. Ho sells the chjara for IQc and 15c apiece.
