SOME INTERESTING TIPS TO SWIMMERS
The opening of the river bathing season
has been accompanied by the usual loss
of life by drowning, and in some cases
death by cerebral congestion, caused by
entering the water too soon after partaking
of a hearty meal. Dr. Hudson Daly was
asked by a Dispatch reporter yesterday as
to the condition the system should be in be
fore daily bathing may be indulged in.
He said that the best time to bathe is about
7 o'clock in the morning before eating
breakiast, or at night before going to bed in
some cases. He further advises against
going into the watei until about two hours
after eating, thus giving food the natural
time to digest.
Dr. Joseph Dickson and other physicians
being consulted by the reporter, the pre
scription to bathers in general may be writ
ten thus: .
PBBSCEIPTION FOK BATHERS.
A natural result ot cold immersion soon
after eating is to encourage or induce a ten
dency to syncope, to concentrate surface
blood still more about the central organs.in
cludingthe heart, which, especially if at all
unequal to its duties, labors ineffectually to
readjust the blood pressure, and finally suc
cumbs, with the lungs and venous system
engorged by passive congestion. It is as if
an enemy occupied the outworks of a for
tress left for a time unguarded, and forth
with paralyzed the resistance of the citadel.
It is best, therefore, to wait at least an hour
an j a half or two hours after a good meal
before bathing. Another danger to be
avoided is that of cramp. This is particu
larly apt to occur after severe exercise or
long immersion. The effect of cold being to
prolong the contraction, while exhaustion
lowers both the power and the elastic recoil
of muscle, it is evident that we have iu a
combination of these forces all that is re
quired for the production of this dangerous
condition. The obvious warning implied in
these remarks requires no further admoni
tion to impress the fact that the bather in
cold water must be economical of time and
free from any appreciable signs of muscular
THE BEST TIME.
An hour before noon and before going to
bed are the best times to bathe. The aver
age duration of the bath should be from live
to ten minutes for children, 15 minutes for
women, and but little longer lor men. To
delay much beyond these periods is c perni
cious practice, inviting debility and injury.
How often one sees, in a stroll along a popu
lar sea beach, groups of drenched, misera
ble objects, with blue lips, chattering teeth,
and wrinkled, clammy skin, who have been
spending half a morning in alternately
plunging into the waves and walking about,
dripping, in the cool air. They return from
t what should have been an invigorating dip,
in a condition approaching collapse. Such
abuse of sea bathing is, untortunately, too
common, even among those who have Sought
the seaside lor the improvement of impaired
The immediate effect of a cold bath is to
chill the surface of the body, the tempera
ture of which, .3 tested by a thermometer,
may fall several degrees as much even as
three or four. The skin becomes pale, the
lips blue, there is a chilliness, shivering,
cooseskin, and the breatb hasji ipasmodic
and catching character. Cold bathing is
salutary under certain conditions of the
system, while in others it is capable of great

and robust, and it can be made a restorative
and tonic a revitalize!1 to the "run
down," when wiselv and judiciously used.
Aged people should use it with much care,
and not oftener than every other dav, and
should not remain in the water longer
than ten minutes at the most. Per
sons who have heart or kidney dis
ease and those in a feeble state of
health should not indulge. If the bather does
not remain in too long "reaction" sets in,
the chilliness gives place to a pleasant glow
and a feeling of comfort and agreeable ex
hilaration. , This reaction follows most
quickly when the bath is oi short duration.
Tne shorter the bath, the less is the ultimate
depression of the temperature of the blood.
The shorter the bath the greater is its power
of stimulating the functions; the longer it
is cortiuued the greater the cooling effect,
and the consequent lowering of vitality.
The temperature of baths may be stated as
follows: The tepid bath is from 85 to 93
Fahrenheit; the warm, from 92 to 98
Fahrenheit; the hot, from 98 to 112
Fahrenheit; the cool, from 60 to 75
Fahrenheit; the cold, from 32 to 60
BEST OF ALL.
The best of all baths is the swimming
bath, for in it the bather can indulge in a
free exercise of his limbs, such as is hardly
attainaole under any other circumstances.
Swimming is a very valuable exercise, as it
brings into action a large number of
muscles. It employs the arms equally with
the legs, and leads to a healthy develop
ment of themuscles of the chest. Nearly
all good swimmers are big-chested. A sea
bath has also another great advantage over
all other forms of bath, that it is taken in
the purest air possible. Reaction more
readily occurs after a sea-bath than after a
river-bath, and thus the liability to "catch
cold" is less, although the popular belief
that it is impossible to take cold from a
wetting with salt water is far from the
.There is a large class of persons, who,
while not having any actual disease, are vet
weakened by excesses, such as dissipation,
confinement within doors, deep study and
other close mental applications. For them
cold bathing is indicated, and proves brac
ing and salutary. It is also beneficial in
sleeplessness, nervous disquietude, debility,
'constipation, chronic catarrhal troubles,
corpulency, dyspepsia, sluggish circulation,
and in a variety ot other affections. In fact,
cold bathing is one of the most efficient ot
tonic measures, and physiciansdepend upon
it in the treatment ot no inconsiderable pro
portion ot their patients.
Another physician spoken to said: "Dur
ing the summer, those who are vigorous
can bathe in salt or fresh water every day
if they care to; the less strong should not do
so oftener than on alternate days. Bathers
should enter the water quickly. The im
mersion should be sudden, and a bold dive
is tne best. The effect is then uniform. If
me wades into the water hesitatingly the
blood is driven from the lower extremities to
the upper parts, and temporary congestion
therein is induced."
A local physician practicing at a water
ing place everv summer calls attention to
the dangers and evils of .the amusement
called "paddling." A common result is a
condition resembling heatstroke, but per
itonitis might be brought about by this
dangerous practice. The symptoms, how
ever, in many cases may not be so severe,
and numbers of children are languid and
poorly, suffering from headache and
malaise from this cause, while the parents
account for the disturbance by the theory
that "the climate Is too strong lor them," or
that "sea air does not agree with their
livers," or some such inscrntable explana
tion. If "paddling" must be allowed, a de
gree of safety is insured by making the
rhild leave the water frequently and ran
Jbout on the shore. The limbs thus become
warm again, and some danger is avoided at
the expense of the skin, which is apt to be
come inflamed and blistered by the sun.
This, however, is a minor evil.
BREAD CAST ON THE WATERS.
Kindness of Canonsburg Citizens Bcrntm.
brred by Jefferson College Alnmnte A
Nenr. Academy to be Erected Very
In the olden time before Jefferson College
was consolidated with 'Washington, the peo
ple of Canonsburg were very kind to the
students, almost adopting them as children
and assisting them in every possible way
up the bill of knowledge. Those students
are now men ranging from middle age
to fourscore years, Out very few of them
have forgotton their alma mater, and much
less the kind-hearted residents of the place,
and of late they have been casting about to
devise some means of showing their appre
ciation, and at the same time perpetuate
classic memories of a spot always green in
their memories. Jefferson college turned
out many intellectual giants, and when
united they are able to do good work.
A movement is on foot to establish an
academy at Canonsburg for the preparation
of boys for college, after the Eastern idea,
to make preparatory schools and colleges
entirely separate institutions. They have
been encourared in their efforts by the
action of the Western University in abolish
ing its preparatory department.
The gentlemen who have taken the matter
in hand compose the following board:
President, Colonel John A. Espy, of Upper
St, Clair township; Dr. Martin, Kevin
Brown. J. H. V. Cook and 'Squire Cockins,
ot Canonsburg; N. W. Shofer, Esq., of
Pittsburir, and Dr. Emory, of Dunmngs
ville. They will put in charge of it Bev.
Dr. J. AV. Wiehtman, a graduate of Jeffer
son of the class of I860, who has been con
ducting a flourishing school at Bowling
Green, Ky. His assistants will be gradu
ates ot different colleges, graduates of later
years, young men schooled according to the
latest ideas, so as to secure the fruits of late
experience in teaching, and the school will
open about the middle of September.
It is intended to give boys an educatiou
that will enable them to enter the freshman,
sophomore or junior class of any college or
university in the Union, classical or scien
tific course; one that will equip them for
life should they be unable to get the college
finish, and the promoters are sanguin that
they will succeed, as they say they are not
doing it for money, and will be satisfied if
receipts pay expenses and maintain the old
time edncational flavor of Canonsburg.
OUR FUTURE PARKS.
The Conncllmanle Committee Organizes
RlTennen Object to the Wharf Park
A Visit la Schcnley Park Planned.
The Park Committee of Pittsburg Coun
cils met yesterday afternoon and organized
by electing M-. A. F. Keating chairman.
The ordinance creating a park on the Alle
gheny wharf from the Sixth street bridge to
the Exposition building was taken up. A
remonstrance signed by James Bees and
numerous rivermen was read. Chief Bige
low stated that the wharf was for years
nothing but a receptacle for rubbish of all
kinds, and Jthat the money derived for
wharfage was not enough to pay a man to
Chief Bigelow was thereupon instructed
to prepare an estimate of the cost of the new
park. The question of a name was also
considered. "Blockhouse Park" had been
suggested, but Mr. Bigelow stated that he
had received a letter from Hon. Morrison
Foster, in which that gentleman stated that
the so-called block house at the point was
not a block house but a redoubt. Mr. Magee
suggested that as the place would hardly be
large enough to be called a park that it be
christened Duquesne Green. The matter of
a name, however, was held over.
The ordinance establishing a park about
the Hiland reservoir was affirmatively
recommended to Councils.
The question of the proposed park on the
Schenley estate in the Twenty-second ward,
was taken up and disenssed; also the visit
of Mr. Carnahan to England to interview
Mrs. Schenley on the subject. Ho definite
action was taken, hnt the committee de
cided to visit the proposed park on Tues
day, July 16, at 10 o'clock to look over the
KILLED BY INCHES.
The Mississippi River Conl Trade to be
Taken From Pittsburg.
It is said the Georgia Pacific Bailway
Company will erect immense coal landings
and tipples at Greenville, Miss., with intent
to coal boats and to ship both up and down
the river. The enterprise is reported to be
backed by the English syndicate which has
been operating in Tennessee and Alabama,
and the combination claims to be able to de
liver coal at the point named at G cents a
bushel to knock out Northern competition.
This is a cent a bushel less than Pittsburg
operators claim to be able to deliver at
Greenville, profit not considered. The
Georgia Pacific Bailway Company has ar
ranged for landings and ordered 100 barges
for use iu shipping.
Pittsburg operators say they cannot com
pete; then, why not dig that canal to Lake
Erie, and begin it at once? Tennessee and
Alabama cannot run coal up the Ohio and
the Beaver and compete with this section.

Our talk to-day is addressed to newly married
couples in particular. Why waste your time,
energies and affections'in a 10x6 room oLsome
hotel or boarding house? Why not possess your
own cozy little home? You certainly have the
means to do it, if you but consult the leading and
largest House furnishing Concern in Pittsburg
Keech's where you will find a stock of Fur
niture that is grand . in every sense of the word
reliable, cheap, fine, stylish, handsorne, large
and where you can buy ON CREDIT (if you
desire it) for actually less money than you'll have
in spot cash ta any house in this city. This is no
wild guess or exaggeration, but a straight, down
right fact Come in, then, ye new "embarkers
on the matrimonial sea," and start your "journey
of life" by letting Keech furnish your home and
hearth. He'll do it right he'll do it cheap.
If health is wealth and comfort is happiness,
our refrigerators may truly be said to be invalua
ble. And they are. No housekeeper who has
ever had one would do without it. But, like in
Furniture, there is a big difference in Refrigera
tors. Remember, the cheap and trashy grades
can be painted up and be-made to look as nicely
as the finest On this score it.is a fact worth
noting that Keech keeps none but the best and
most reliable Refrigerators, that have all the
latest improvements and ice-saving appliances.
And on these goods positively guarantees you a
saving of from 15 to 25 per cent Besides, you
have the advantage of making your selections
from a stock that includes all different designs,
styles and sizes.
And how about Filters, Coolers and Ice Cream
Freezers? Remember that Keech's is headquar
ters for these goods in Pittsburg, as well as for
all kinds of Tableware and Kitchen Utensils.
Last Sunday we announced that the big' Carpet
trade we enjoyed this season has left on our hands
many remnants of varying lengths which we
should now close out at away below their intrinsic
value. How promptly and liberally this offer was.
responded to by the shrewd housekeepers of
Pittsburg is attested by the diminished number
of remnants yet on hand. There are enough yet,
however, to please all comers this week. But,
don't delay any longer, if you want to take ad
vantage of this rare opportunity, lest you may be
left out in the cold. It is hardly necessary to tell
you that our regular stock of Carpets presents
all the usual inducements and attractions to par

that we are at present engaged in closing out the bal

fall novelties. This means bargains for you, and you
No mother of a baby should do without one.
No excuse for it Prices are so low as to be
within the reach of all. Just think! At the ex
ceptionally low price of $7 50 you can buy a
first-class Baby Carriage, with wood or steel bicy
cle wheels, genuine reed body, beautifully up
holstered and having a handsome parasol. But
this is only a fair example picked at random from
our immense stock. Bear these facts in mind
when starting out to buy a Baby Carriage: We
show the largest stock, the grandest variety, the
prettiest makes; the latest styles, and (this is the
most important of all) we positively save you
from $2 to $10 on every Baby Carriage you may
buy from us. Sensible people will save their
time and money when wishing to purchase by
going to Keech's, and this not only holds good
about Baby Carriages, but about every article in

"ARCH, April, May and June
with us in our business history, uur large store has Deea
taxed for room to meet the trade and do business as we like
to do it comfortably.
The usual dull months of July and August are here. We're
going to turn these into busy ones. Beginning with to-morrow,
two gold, silver or paper dollars will do the work of three dollars
in the purchase of reliable goods. We have, as a matter of course,
despite our enormous business, actually more goods in our store
now than any other dealers of this city have had at any time
during the season and our objective point is to sell what we have
during July and August. The plan laid out has been called
"Wisdom's losses. ' You are to take our merchandise and we your
money. You wouldn't .exchange unless we made it an object.
That we'll do by cutting off dollars.
You'll get bargains impossible to obtain elsewhere and we'll
make dollars by the use of your money a fair exchange you'll
say of course.
WAKEN TO THE FACT, OH YE PEOPLE
Bargains Impossible of Duplication
-ARE OBTAINABLE IN-
EVERY DEPARTMENT 0E OUR STORE
There's no time in the past season when our sales have not
exceeded the combined sales of any three of the other large
clothing houses in Pittsburg, notwithstanding we have put our
truthful statements against exaggerated advertising. We expect
this week a flood of eager buyers for the simple reason that we're
bound to keep busy even if we lose money. The goods we have
must be sold at some price; they can't linger around here; not in
our store. This is the reason why we make such remarkable
offers; give such phenomenal bargains. Our prices for Men's
Suits will range from $3 50 to 25, the way stations between these
two points being frequent enough to accommodate all kinds of
people. Altho' we have not, as in mid-season, 30, 40 or 50 of a
kind yet we have enough to suit and fit everybody. You've only
got to make up your-mind as to the amount you wish to spend to
fit you out in proper summer attire to get something to suit you.
Bear in mind we've got first mortgage on quality and we strike
the key note of popularity by giving the highest satisfaction in
fit and style. -

Many a poor woman, misled by some high-sounding advertise
ments of unscrupulous dealers, pays the penalty of an injudicious
purchase by constantly toiling after her hard day's work in order
to keep in repair clothing bought for her boy at clothing stores
other than ours. We protect all in whatever they buy from us by
guaranteeing absolute satisfaction in wear, no matter what price
is paid us. Be advised by us all parents. Come and see how
little cash it takes to buy, this week, clothing for your boys relia
ble in every way. You with plenty or you with meager filled
purses, now's your chance to buy where your money will do almost
double duty. Not a single article offered at a low price as a mis
"leader," but our entire stock is offered at a liberal reduction in
prices. Not only are the goods we offer lower in price than can
be found elsewhere, but you can depend on the thorough .reliabil
ity of everything we offer If we were to utilize a whole page of
this paper in speaking of our Boys' and Children's clothing we
