A FATAL MISTAKE.
HOW A BLUNDERING JUDGEMENT MAT BB
RESPONSIBLE FOB TIIE MOST
Mr. Edwin Booth said recently that
he supposed his lungs were affected,
having a persistent cough until lie saw
Dr. Mackenzie, of London, who found
that his symptom arose from a dis
turbance of the liver. — JV. Y. Her
The above item, which has been going
the rounds of the Press, is of no special
significance other than to the persoual
friends ot Mr. Booth, except that it brings
to lighi a truth of the greatest importance
to tli6 world. Few people pass through
life without the affliction of a cough at
some point in tfeeir career. In most cases
this is considered the result oi a cold or
the beginning of consumption, and thous
ands have become terrified at this revela
tion and have sought by a ch&uge of air
and the use of cough medicines to avert
the impending disaster. It may safely be
said that more than half the coughs which
are afflicting the world to-day do not have
their origin in the lungs but are the result
of more serious troubles in other organs of
the body. " Liver coughs'' are exceedingly
common and yet are almost wholly mis
understood. Arising from a disordered
state of the liver they show their results
by congesting the lungs. In fact, the ef
forts of the liver to throw off the disease,
produce coughing even when the lungs
themselves are in a healthy state.
But it is a mistake to suppose that such
delicate tissues as the lungs can long re
main in a healthy condition when they are
being constantly agitated by coughing,
Such a theory would be absurd. Con
sumption, which was feared at first, is
certain to lake place unless something is
done to check the cause. This must be
plain to every thoughtful mind. It stands
to reason, therefore, that the only way In
which " liver coughs" can be removed is
by restoring the liver to health,
In this connection, another fact of great
importance becomes known, which can
best be explained by the relation of an
actual event. Mr. W , a wealthy cat
tle dealer of Colorado, became greatly re
duced in health and came east to Chicago
for the purpose of being cured. He con
sulted Dr. J , one of the leading phy
sicians of the country on pulmonic subjects
aud began treatment for the cure of his
lungs. But his cough increased while his
strength decreased. Finally he determined
to consult another physician aad applied to
Dr. B . After a careful examination he
was informed that his lungs was perfectly
sound, while his kidneys were in a most
terrible condition. He had all the appar
ent symptoms of consumption but he was
suffering from the terrible Bright's disease.
The symptoms of consumption are often
the sure indication of Bright's disease.
The above truths regarding coughs have
been known by the leading physicians for
several years but the public have never
been informed of them. They are serious
facts, however, and should be understood
by all, so that dangers which might other
wise prove fatal may be avoided. They
clearly prove one great truth which ts, that
the kidneys and liter are such vital organs
that their health should be constantly
gurjded. The distressing, hacking cough,
which is often dreaded as the forerunner
of consumption and the was"ing strength
which accompanies it, in all probability
may arise from weakened or diseased kid
neys or liver, to restore which would cause
returning health. How this most desirable
end may be attained has long been a
problem, but few people of intelligence at
the present day have longer any doubts that
the popular remedy known as Warner's
iSafe Kidney and Liver cure has done more
to correct, relieve and restore these organs
than any other preparation ever before
known. There are hundreds of Instances
which have occurred within the past three
months where individuals have believed
themselves the victims of consumption,
when, in reality it was deranged kidneys
and liver which this remarkable medicine
has completely cured, as witness the fol

PROPERTIES c* CHARCOAL. —As a top
dressing for a meadow or a lawn it is ex
cellent. It is so good an absorbent of
moisture and grasses that it will keep a
Jawn green in a drought when the undres
sed flelds are brown and parched. As a
basis for compost there is nothing superi
or. Every good house wife knows that if
she has auy tainted meat charcoal will
take out its taints it anything can. A
p'ece as big as one's fist put into the pot
with boiling corned beet that has passed
its prime will absorb the bail odors and re
store it to sweetness if the putrefaction
process lias not gone too far. In like man
ner chaicoal acts in the compost heap. An
effluvia even from a dead horse, will bo
absorbed and stored up for the use of corn,
grass or any crop to which it may be ap
plied. As a top dressing lor grass or grain
it is particularly beneficial, as when tbo
rich gases have once been extracted it is
in a position to absorb more from the
dews, snows and rains. Ploughed under
a thick sod its absorbing power is compar
tively limited. We must not omit to
mention the aerating effect which fine
charcoal has on stiff clay land®. It renders
them friable and permeable to air aud
moisture—a result which can hardly bo
overestimated. Muck has something of
the same effect, but muck docs not last as
does charcoal. Oo sandy lands charcoal
does good, as it is such an absorbent of
moisture that thin lauds dressed with it
will remain fresh when the undressed are
parched. The only place where charcoal
seems to exert little or no ameliorating in
fluence is on low, cold, wet lands, and
here even stable manure has comparative
ly little effect.
UTILISE YOUR BONES. — bones of
your own body, merely, but any and all
bones, beef and mutton and chicken, aiul
even tish bones. The American Garden
says they constitute the very best food for
fruit-trees and grape vines if the fragments
are only placed where the roots can lay
hold on them, aud adds: "Instead of al
lowing pieces of bone to be cast into the
back-yard, as food for stray dogs and
strange cats, domestics should bo directed
to deposit everything of the sort in a small
tub provided witn a lid. As soon as a
few pounds have accumulated we take the
tub to some grape vine or fruit tree, dig a
hole three or more feet long, a foot or two
wide, and less than a toot deep,into which
the bones ardumped; spread over the bot
tom of the excavation, and cover with the
soil. The more the fragments can be spread
around, the better. But they should be
buried so deep that a plow or spade wull
not reach them. The roots of growing
vines or fruit trees will soon find the valu*
aoJe mine of rich fertility,and will feed on
the elements that will greatly promote the
growth of stroug and healthy wood and the
development of fair and luscious fruit."
CLEAN CIDIB BARRELS. —Cider makiDg
is uow close at haud, and old barrels must
have terome very mouldy anil whol'y un
fit to use without a thorough fumigation.
A scientific journal gives the following re
ceipts for effecting this, which we hope
may do. "To clean cider barrels, pour m
lime water, and then insert a trace chain
through the bung-hole, remembering to
fasten a strong cord on the chain so as to
pull it out again. Shake the barrel until
all the mould, inside is rubbed off. Rinse
with water, and finally pour in a little
whisky." This is simple enough and
would seem to meet the requirements.
Really fine cider can Dot be expected when
the barrels are not perfectly sweet and
clean. But if any of our cider-makers have
a bettor or other methods than this, we
shall be pleased to find them; aud to be of
use this season they should be communi
cated at once.
FATTENING SMALL FIGS. —Cora at sev
enty cents a bueiiel is still the cheapest fat*
tening food for pigs; but when corn is so
dear it is best to study the most economical
manner of feeding; corn in the ear boiied
with small potatoes, will be worth twice
as much dry as corn and raw ootatoes. la
deed raw potatoes will scarcely do more
than support life, and may often be inju
rious, being indigestible ami drastic, in
| their effects upon the Dowels. Corn-meal
boiled to a thick mush and mixed with
skim milk and fed when nearly cold, will
make the cheapest pork. A bushel of coru
fed in this way has made twenty-iour
pounds of pors. Corn meal steeped in
water is about as good as boiled whole corn
and the latter is the cheaper of the two.

A LADY, writing to an exchange, says:
Never give up a choice but decaying rose
bush till you have tried watering it two or
three times with soot tea. Take soot from
a chimney or stove with which wood is
burned and make a tea of it. When cold,
water the rosebush with it. When ail is
used pour boiling water a second time
on the soot. The shrub will quickly eend
out thrifty shoots, the leaves will become
large and thick and the blossoms will be
larger and more richly tinted than before.

three or four inches long cat them off, pick
the leaves from the stems and pour on

to have regained its original shape. If
the wood is in small pieces, it can be
easily straightened by geutly steaming

be (piite dty. The chief advantage* of
packing in sand are, the exclusion of air
currents, the preservation from changes
of temperature, and the absorption of
moisture which favors decay. Muoli

A DILEMMA: An Austin boy had the
bad. habit of reading after he went to
bed, and leaving the candle burning,
much to the alarm of hia parents, who
were afraid he would set the house on
fire. As the boy did pretty much as he
pleased, his father told the colored boy
who waited on the table to go up into
the son's room after he had gone to sleep
and put ont the light, which programme
was carried out for several months. One
night, however, the parents of the boy
were aroused from a sound slumber by
the calling out: "Boh®, oh Boss! what
ami terdo?" "Merciful Moses! what
has happened?" "De boy has done—"
"Merciful heavens 1 has he set the house
on firo?" "No, but he put de light out
hisself. I want ter know what I'm
gwino ter do about hit?"

they won't get drunk at all. and oonse
