What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

A gold fond of being filling may be filled up to almost any rocked because their ancestors were eize or shape required. None of the acid Swung in treetops. This Is easily com- batted by the fact that some babies are not like to be rocked, and that rocking Is not at all necessary to their health and happiness; indeed, it is often urged that it is one of the most Injurious things imaginable. ScP deeply is this Impressed on some mothers that there filling, and dentistry is at its best. are many children brought up in this country who have never been rocked in a c i radle.

This is not at all surprising when one considers that as soon as a baby is able to stand on its feet its toes are compressed tend it is not allowed to use them. Why should it use them when there is no occasion unless it is destitute of hands, and then, as every one knows it can learn to perfbrm most all of th c uses of hands with its feet. The small boy is charged with inherit- ing his fruit -stealing instinet from his monkey ancestors. This does not by any means follow, as some small boys not only steal fruit but everything toothsome that they can lay their hands c , n. It is stated In the article that babies go to sleep on their stomachs with their lege curled up under them. Several In- telligent mothers have been interviewed on this subject, and they one and all declare that, In their experience, babies do not go t,) sleep in that way, but on the aide, and in their sleep frequently roll over on the back. A number of ad- ditional claims of this sort are made, none of which seem to fit the case any further than as the same points might be applied to other animals. The kitten goes to sleep on its stomach, It has a snub nose, It is attracted by any article hanging loose and waving in the wind much more quickly than a baby is, and a puppy has an insatiate desire to tug at a root. The theory that the ape is a degenerate man is a much 11101e rea- sonable one than the Darwinian. It Is also much more agreeable; and this being the case. it might be just as well to let It stand until It can be disproved by n.ore conclusive authority than any that has yet been presented. ' ' Lakes—An Rainfall. An Important Item In Murder Cases. Whether the blood stains found on the hands and garments of suspected murderers are those of the victim or of some animal han for many years been a most difficult question to decide. The presence of the sanguinary fluid forms a very strong bit of circumstantial evi- dence, but no expert has until recent- ly been able to swear positively that the stains were made by the blood of a human being. Dr. Cyrus Edson has oft- en been called as an expert in murder cases, but, will a deep sense of the ' Importance of his decision. has many times refused to testify that It was blood of a human being which he was required to examine. Recently, how- ever, he has made an Important discov- ery, and one which definitely fixes the action of experts In the future. By magnifying blood corpuscles and throw- ing them upon a screen with a magic lantern, the form, consistency and oth- er peculiarities ot blood are clearly es- tablished, and It Is shown that blood drawn from the veins of a human be- ing Is entirely unlike that of any other creature. The Importance of this die- • covery may be realized when it is known that within one single year at least fifteen case' have occurred in which the identification of human blood Was necessary In order to establish the guilt of the suspected party.

Given a good workman, a tooth with sufficient body to hold the gold and a well managed Everybody knows that the annual rainfall is accurately measured In dif- ferent localities, but comparatively few People know how it Is done. The simplest form of rain-guage consists of a funnel with a definite area, say, twelve Inches, which fits In the mouth of a bottle. The rain that falls into the funnel runs down into the bottl% of course, and the quantity ItOmeasured by means of a graduated glass. Sup- pose, for example, In twenty-four hours. the quantity collected measures 2.3 fluid ounces. This is equal to four cubic.. Inches and if the area of the funnel be twelve niche's It follows that there has been a fall of one third of an Inch. The accompanying Illustration show' the funnel and the bottle enclosed in a metal cylinder, which is the usual ar- rangement, the object of the cylinder being to retain any snow that may fall. , Ingrowing Nails. A physician who has given many years of exhaustive study to the sub- ject states that ingrowing nails are constitutional, and the tendency to them is inherited. He declares that Ill- fitting shoe' have very little to do with this annoying difficulty, and while It It Important that foot -wear should be so adapted Era not to aggravate the trouble, It certainly will not by Reel! cause It. Temporary annoyance of this sort la sometimes produced by breaking the nails Instead of cutting them, there- by tearing off bits of skin at the cor- ners. The Injured flesh does not offer suitable resistance to the edge of the nail, which then grows in—a condition Increased by the feverish state of the adjacent parts. Several generations of sufferers have been treatd with suc- cess by cutting a V-aliaped piece out of the middle of the nail at the edge, tin\ following the line from the point of the V to the root of the nail, scraping the hard surface away until It was as thin as paper. The natls of the toe,' aften become irritated and Inflamed on ac- count of bits of lint from the « hose and dust working under the corners.

Pittsburg Dispatch. \You would be surprised at the number of mental travelers that are in a community,\ said a railroad man yesterday. \I mean people who travel only in their minds; mho, to Indulge this mania, make a col- lection of railroad literature, such as is issued In time -tables, excursion books pamphlet's etc. You' have often heard people talk knowingly of a place which you have best evidence that they hay' never visited. They can discourse fits ently upon the hotels and principai sights of the city, even tell you of the trains and the connections they make, or describe the small stations through which they pass going there. If you have ever known a man or woman like this, then you have met a mental traveler. He might also be dubbed the railroad literature fiend, as this is the title by which he Is known among the employes of a railroad office, who look no further Inte the motives of men than the surface. We have hundreds of such men and women who come to the office after every piece of literature the rail- road prints, from the Iodai time -tables to the book descriptive of a southern or western jaunt. Their thirst for this kind of literature Call never be satiated; it seems to have the same influence as alcoholic stimulants -the more they get the more they want. We have men who are employed in leading positions in banks and business houses who come to us daily with the question, 'Anything new out?' When the people live in the city they usually call upon us daily, but when they reside in the country their visits are at longer Intervals. We have one old man who comes from Westmoreland cou , j e uty who never falls to appear upon t 'same date of each month. He seems to revel in going through the large batch of time -tables and books that have accumulated since his last visit. He never varies in his mode of procedure. After supplyIns himself with a sample of each one he comes over to the window, and, with his face wreathed in smiles, in the in- toxication of his delight, he says, 'How're you, anyhow?' After being as- sured that our health still permitted us to continue at our business, he always asks, 'Weil, kin you tell me how mucti'm the fare to Boston?' When this infor- mation is given he invariably remarks, Well, that's Rol darn cheap, that is.' Then he lapses into a thoughtful mood, from which he breaks by making the as- sertion, 'Confound me, I'll go down there next year.' Then picking up hie grip, he starts off and we do not see him again for a month. He has been going to Boston 'next year' to my own knowl- edge for six years. These mental travel- ers get more satisfaction out of thelt dreamy wanderings than the usual tour. 1st of the day who travels not to learn, but to kill time. One man odd me that he had never been to Washington in his life, yet was as familiar with the get• tiqk there and the city itself as if he had lived there his lifetime. He can talk about the streets and numbers, and can direct people from one plare to another with more accuracy than thE average Pittsburg polleeman can give you information about his town, and gets It all from railroad literature. Tot, watch the time -table racks of a railroad station and notice what a high class ol people these mental travelers are.\ HUNTING THE GIRAFFE. A Rough but Short Gallop After hionr *teems „aine. The bush Is horribly dense and thorny,/and the tioraim are of such a nature that the at ingest cord breeches can scarcely withstand their assaults.
