Valuable Because Absorbent—A Clay
Pipe Makes a Good One.
Physicians are often asked whether
there really Is any virtue in what arc
called madstones. One of them de
clares that these stones are of value,
but that they would be of more value
if their limitations were understood.
“There is no particular variety of
Stone' or v. i,.ch may be des
ignated exclusively as the mudstone.”
he says. “I have seen many of them,
so called, and no two were of exactly
the same composition, geologically con
“Mudstones act on the same principle
that a blotting paper does when ab
sorbing ink, and there is nothing that
makes a better one than baked pipe
clay. Anew clay pipe, procurable for
a cent at nearly any store where to
bacco is sold, cannot be excelled by
any mudstone, no matter how great
“The action can be clearly demon
strated by placing a common dry red
brick in contact with the margin of a
puddle of water and noticing what
capillary attraction will accomplish.
Therefore to be efficient the only ne
cessity is for the stone to be porous
and have strong adhesive and absorb
ent qualities. Nothing mysterious
“I have seen several that appear to
be concretions, either vesical, renal or
biliary, and were found in the bladder,
kidney or liver of some animal—those
taken from the deer supposed to be the

or dog supposed to be mad and the

blotting paper action begins, nnd the
blood, saliva from the mouth of the
animal and whatever poison those
fluids contain will naturally by capil
lary attraction be absorbed by and
into the substance applied, no matter
what name you may give it.
“The saying that if a stone sticks
the wound is poisonous and if it does
not take hold there is no venom pres
ent is untrue. If the stone is clean
and dry it will adhere when moisture
is within reach till it becomes saturat

as the victim is usually filled with

“I know of a stone which has a wide
reputation and makes a - good living for
the family owning it. They never let
it go out "of their sight, and when the
victim cannot be taken to the stone
one member of the family can be hired
to take the stone to the victim. In ad
dition to traveling expenses, they
charge $5 for the application and $2
extra for each hour that the stone

short.” He also says there will be

A MERRY FISHING FROLIC.
Last Saturday Apr. 27th, quite a
number of young people of South
Butts assembled, and pairing off into
separate buggies went to the High
falls on a fishing frolie, All nature
was an “eloquence of beauty," with
rlie rays of sunlight shining among
her visible foim<; this with the mer
ry crowd, and owing to each one be

noon cnused the proverb ‘eat and be
merry,’' to bo carriedto its culn i tu

A "Touching" Story.
The young lady who had sat for a
crayon portrait was not altogether
pIA-ised with the result. “It looks like
me, of course,” she suid, inspecting it
doubtfully, “and yet I think there are
some things about It that ought to be
She suggested that the eyes should
have rather more of an upward look,
that the right hand should be a little
less prominent, that the hair should
be made more wavy and that certnln
changes ought to be made in the drap
“That would require a greut deal of
retouching.” said the artist, “and I
should have to charge you about $lO
“Oh, dear!” she exclaimed with a
pout. “I shall have to give it up.
Papa won’t stand my ‘retouching’ him
to that extent.”
A Case In Point.
Of Sergeant Arabln, who had not a
clear method of speech, it is related
that he said to one criminal, “Prisoner
at the bur, if ever there was a clearer
case than this of a man robbing his
master, this case is that case.” At
another time he said, "Prisoner at the
bar, you have been found guilty on
severul Indictments, and it Is in my
power to subject you to transportation
for a period very considerably beyond
the term of your natural life, but the
court in Iks mercy will not go so far
as it lawfully might go. and the sen
tence is that you be transported for
two periods of seven years each.”—
Real Distress of Mind.
Dora—l’m in such distress of mind,
and I want your advice. I am loved

do you suppose I’d waste precious time
running around for advice?
Something More Recent.
“What was the cause of this rum

“Well, you sec, judge,” replied the
policeman, “this man here and that:

Death For a Kiss.
The rules and regulations which en

exceptionally Btriet when compared

On the other hand, compared with the

I have personal knowledge of a case in
