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.

(Good ventilation is taught in aii our schools, if it is not always practiced; and treat- ment by the open-air method is be- coming more and more advocated for certain diseases, especially tu- berculosis, says Youth’s Compan- ion. In all this spread of knowledge and good sense it is unfortunately very possible to lose sight of the real issue. Itlis no exaggeration to say that many a one who can glibly patter off the ‘number of cubic feet of nir necessary for each one to breathe _rarely draws a full breath. Fresh air is a free gift, but it is like most of the gifts of Heaven, in that we must do our share of the work to benefit by it. No one would expect to have a good fire just ‘because a pair of bellows hung on @ nail by the chimney, but this is exactly what many people expect of their lungs, which are really ofily the bellows given us by avhich to keep the fire of life \burting “bright: and clear within us. 5 It is not too much to assert that lungs properly used in a compara- tively close. room. will do more good than lavy lungs in an open field. This trick of lazy lung is a habit, like any other, and may be overcome by persistent effort. Many persons, for example, are afflicted with a nervous habit of holding the breath ‘unconsciously. These are the people who, in spite of plenty of time out of doors, yet catch cold easily, digest poorly, and are always more or less “‘un- der the weather”’ physically. They are often much benefited by a course of active exercise bebause, it is impossi eto | exercise vigor- j wing some good -and they majority of Se with the and al- breathe rate The land is |i to town -covering seven miles in! his tramp, ‘and arrived here in an. sonia vote to breathing. If this is done ‘systematically the re- former will find himself uncon- sciously breathing more and more, until very soon he is obeying nat- ure and really breathing to live. In this way we must all work for a living if we want a good one. Besides the gain to the general health which comes from. the habit of deep breathing there is created a reserve strength and prepared- ness which is often of great ser- vice in warding off acute pulmo- nary diseases. News Nuggets. Three , persons were killed and more than 100-injured iu the cele- ration of this year’s Fourth of July in Chicago. Archbishop’ Feehan, who has been in feeble health for some months past, died at his home in Chicago on the 12th inst. -At Caraceas on' ‘the }gth a violent’ shock. of earthquake was experienced. Reports from the interior say the shock was felt there. ‘ A *trio of baby lions is now the attraction in the Bostock animal show in St. Louis, and they are named Barnum Barney and Bernato. James Henderson, who carried out the sentence of death upon Louis Reil, originator of the Reil rebellion in Canada, is dead at his ranch near Glasgow. Rey. C. A.

For two or three weeks the daily papers have furnished the public withinteresting reading mat- ter which, if true, is a sure indica- tion that Tracy, the ontlaw, is a marvelous man in his way. He is reported to besurrounded by the sherriffs’ posses and all possible chance of-eseape cut off. Next day he appears at some other point, quietly walks in on some unsuspect- ing famliy, invitesthem to dine with him and farnish him what rations he can conveniently carry and leaves his old clothesas a souvenir, while he wears away the rancher’s best suit. Then again we read that bloodhounds are hot’ on his trail, the officers guarding all avenues of escape, and that his capture is certain within a few hours; but as time passes and the next reportvomes in it is learned haps he has “‘chartered’’ a steamer or taken a trip to some of the isl- ands in a skiff. One thing is sure, he successfully defies the ‘officers to take him, and when it comes to close quarters kills a few of them and goes on his way. TT THE CHURCHES. METHODIST—J. M. TULL, PASTOR.
