Why a Street Car Is Better Than a Tread mill to Reduce Weight. Detroit Free Press. A "hard-looking citizen with a ferocious white bull dog attached to a chain attracted a eood deal of attention on the tront end of a Fort street car yesterday afternoon. The "flog's legs and body were covered with an inch of mud, and as he trotted alongside the moving car, tugging at his chain, took all his owner's strength to hold him. ""Where are you going with the dog?" was asked. '.Nowhere," replied the man,"only work ing him." "Got a match for him?" "Yes; comes off next Saturday night in Dclray. He's in pretty good shape, and I guess ne's a winner. A street car is the best place in the world to work a do? on. If yon run him under a buggy his throat gets full ot mud from the horse's feet. A tread mill is no nse because it Worries the heart out of him. But a street car takes the cake, and especially this line, becanse yon can ride 12 miles for a nickel. A man can reduce a dog at the rate of three pounds a day by running him alongside a street car." EAST TO REMEMBER. Take One GInss of Beer After Eating; a Ilcnvy Dinner. Albany Journal. An Albanian who has lived abroad, and who knows what good living is, speaking to some friends recently of his experience as a heavy diner, said he learned a trick in Ger many which he had never forgotten and which every one who dines out should re member, and that is to take a glass of lager beer about half an hour after a heavy meal, and especially if wines of various qualities have been served. Nothing, he said, would relieve the nat nral oppression that a heavy eater feels so quickly as a glass of lager beer taken as directed. He said this was a rule with the best livers in Germany, and also in France. The lnngs are strained and racked by a persistent cough, the general strength wasted, and an incurable, complaint often established thereby. Dr. Jayne s Expecto rant is an effective" remedy for coughs and colds, and exerts a beneficial effect on the pulmonary and bronchial organs. THE LOCAfr RESUME.
