THE SCKAXTON TRIBUNE SA TTJBDAY MOUSING, OCTOBER C, 1894.
A - A
Reader of this column will be inter
ested in a brief account of one of tbe
most original aud unique weddiug an
niversaries celebrated iu this region.
It illustrates wbat an ingenious boat
aud hostess can do to relieve tbe gath
ering of even tbe slightest degree of
formal stiffness. Allusion ia made to
tbe celebration of tbe twenty-flret an
niversary of Professor and Mrs. C.
Coles at'Kiugston recently.
The word "Welcome" was emblaz
oned over the portal, aud indeed made
each Kuewt feel that the occasion was
to mean something at least more than
a mere matter of social form. On en
tering the door the visitors were greeted
by Professor Cole attired in his wed
ding suit of more than a score of years
before. This happy deviance from tbe
stereotyped custom of being admitted
by a servant and not meeting the host
until after descending from the dressing-room,
was the second notable ab
sence of conventionality.
The guests were agreeably disap
pointed in any anticipations tbey may
nave had of "refreshments" included
in the same old, old list of salad, rried
oysters, patties, hashed chicken sand
wiches, chips, ice cream, coffee and
rake. Instead of "refreshments,"
which makes one's flesh creep nowa
days if attending more than two social
attairs a week, an "astrological lunch"
was served by the host aud hostess
nnd their daughter. It was the most
uovel feature of the evening and was
a'- artistic as it was original.
The lunch was selected by chance
from an elaborate menu, each person
being restricted to a half dozen arti
cles, though later no restriction of kind
o; quality was made. This was done
by passing a plate of cards, blank side
up, containing' the names of the arti
cles on the menu list. Each guest
drew six cards, and was supplied with
the articles corresponding to tbe name
on the card. If the guest drew more
than one of a kind: he was permitted
another chance, announcing aloud his
choice. Each article was appropri
ately illustrated on the card, as follows:
i ocoa uake,
J cm) Banana,
Apple and Pear,
ctweei rotato tuocits.

served as a memento of the memorable

Barry O'Neil made his appearance at the
Academy of Musio last night In hi melo
drama, "Irish Inspiration." The story of
the play is similar in dres and construc

Barry O'Neil for many years travelled as

in other well known stage productions.

SOME HEALTH HINTS.
f or the Saturday Tribune.
Woman, it is claimed by high au
thority, has the advantage of man as
regards longevity; she sutlers less trom
accidents, injuries and many forms of
disease; sue is, in fact, more tenacious
than man of tue limited enjoyments
allowed her. Dr. Brandreth Symonds
has collected and studied a large num
ber of statistics to illustrate tills inter
estiug fact. The comparative mortal
ity of tha sexes at different ages shows
tnat in tne nrst year or lire tne mortal
ity of the female is much less than that
of the male, being at birth 92.04 per
1,000 as against 112.80, and at tbe end
of the vear 31.87 as against 35.03. The
difference continues up to the fourth
vear. From 5 to 12 the female mortali
ty is greater than that of tbe male,
being at the latter period 3.56 for males
and 4.28 for females. At the age of 40
tbe male mortality equals that of the
female, toe latter naving been up to
this time slightly in excess. During
the years 46 and 56, the period of the
climacteric, the male mortality gains
rapidly on tbe female, being 0.32 per
annum for the one and only 3.47 for
the other. Hence the climacteric is
really a much more serious time for
man than for woman. After 55 the
female mortality gains on that of the
male, but is always slightly below it.
Woman nas not only a less mortality,
but greater longevity than man.
There is, also, a plurality of female

Fleshy women should avoid every
thing in the shape of liquors (especially
beer), starchy cereals, like cornmeal,
hominy, rye, oatmeal and brown

sauces; these ceate an unnatural thirst
which nothing but liquid of some kind
can quench. And water enters largely
into tue composition ot tat. Meats can
be eaten freely, as they enter into mus

A noteworthy feature of the congress
of physicians at Vienna a few days ago
was the discussion of the discovery of

for diphtheria by the inoculation of the

Professor liehriiig, in an interview

tion for diphtheria ought to be com

of smallpox. During the debate in the
congress, rroiessor unriicn, or Herun
stated his belief that the milk of inocu
lated animals would tend to asxist in
effecting cures. In support of Profes

serum was as powerful against dtpn
therla as vaccine wm against small
pox. The present expense of procur
ing the blood serum puts it beyond tne
reach of most persons, as it is manu
factured in only two places in Ger
many, in Hoechst, near Frankfort, and
Berlin. Two Injections of the remedy
cost $7.20, and as many cases require
six, the costliness of the treatment may

The Earl of Rose ber v on opening
the annual exhibition of Highland in
dustries and arts at Inverness, Scot
land, was presented with the freedom
of the city. He was assured by "Pro
vost" K.)ss that all parlies in tbe
burg, Whig and Tory alike, had sunk
political differences and with heartv
good will welcomed the prime minister
of the Highlands. Lord Rosebery
commenced his speech with a sly dig
at the critics who look with distrust
upon his so-called "youthfulness," and
remarked that the days were approach
ing when a man would come of age at
fifty or sixty! He apiluuded the sen
timent that prompted the people to
combine to honor bun and at the same
time lay aside all their polit cal differ
ences of opinion, and regarded such a
feature as singular and peculiar to this
country alone, aud explained his rea
sons for his asseveration by pointing
to the age of the countrv and the long
p oliticaleducation and experience its
nbaoitants nave undergone. He re
marked with some warmth that "he
could not go over the long line of
statesmen who have held cabinet office
since the beginning of the century and
nnd one who has lett a name to be
ashamed of." Throughout the speech
was of a social nature aud carefully
avoided party polities. Lord Rose
bery was presented with a massive
gold ring to commemorate his being
"wedded to tne burgu."
Owners of steam cutters are not con
tent with the carrying capacity of their
steamers and are about to start a some
what strange experiment. The steam

in tneirvan, tne said barges carrying
800 to 1 ,000 tons of coal. A number of
barges are being specially built for the
sea trade between tbe Humber and the
rhames. The barges will be battened
down at the port of departure and will
not carry any steering gear. The latest
tning in torpedo boats is "just out."
The latest thing's name Is the Daring,
and is one of the fastest boats that has
ever been constructed, its speed on a
trial trip showing twenty-uine miles,
In addition to n powerful torpedo
equipment the Daring carrys one 12-
pounder and three b-pounder quick
bring guns. The miners In various
parts of Scotland are still on strike and
are causing considerable trouble. At a
place called Motherwell a riot took
place and the police had a somewhat
ively time of it, several being injured.
The latest is a telegram to Mr. Asquith,
the house secretary, irom the secretary
or the bcottmu Miners' federation

English 'crastables on unoffending
miners, women and children at Mother

A remarkable diniinuation in the
number of convicts sent to peual servi
tude is shown in last year's records of
tbe prisons report. In 1859 the popn
lation was 19,259,000, and the number

Sir Augustus Harris bas scored an
other success with his new melodrama,
Every Christmas "Gussy" produces ut
old Drury Lane theater a new panto
mime and the papers say the knight of
the boards has once more surpassed
himself, and every autumn he brings
on a new drama and tbe critics aver
that it is the "best thing Harris has

Winner" Is worthy or great praise,
The niece is full of daring novelties.

through one entire scene ou horseback,
a "new" woman of theoigarette-smok

a military bull and other "plums." A
curious incident took place on the
opening night. In the great race scene
the awful "vtllitis" Uee-Uee should, or
course, get a bad beating, whilst that

But the Inst named horse would do
nothing but iibb, and instead of land

an interesting character throughout

Road racing among our wheelmen is

noble police authorities object to as

promoters of the "North road twenty
four hours' ride," they posted them

route; but the wily wheelmen altered
the track and the race came off, al

A few word with regard to the dis

if tbe Welsh are to uutiaal, how it it
that they bare not produeed a
