Furtherniore, thread often contains lfiad, and oft repeatcd biting off of tnreads has been known to result in lead poisoning. Peopleshould be careful how they accept the proscriptions found in the daily papers. A sure cure for diphtheria published by some of the papen prescribed a tablespoonful of turpuntino for adults and a tcaspoonful for children, frequently repeated - an excessive or poisonous dose of a snbstance which must in any case be administered with great caution. Nytn Crinkle says we have morphino girls who uso this drug to drown mental troublo; belladonna girls who employ this powerful herb to dilate the pupil aud givo brightness to the eyes; the anenlo girl who employés this mineral to improye hrr complexion; the nitrato of siher girls who apply this poisonous wash to the hair to oblitérate gray hairs; and the nicotine girl whosmokes her cigarettos privately because she enoys tho liabit.

Early ono raorning he lighted a match to see the time and in blowing out the match his breath caught fire, burning his lips and giving him terrible surprise. Probably the gases formed in his stomach were chemically aimlogons to the inllammable gases formed in coal pits. M Chevreul reoently ce ebrated the centennial ann versarv of his birth.

He says: "As a general rule, these fístula grcatly aggravHte the pulmonary affection by impairing the constitutional powers, especially if attended by copious discharge of pus and much irritation. The principal indication in such oases is to build up, not to deplete - I)r. Foote's Health Monthly.
