Retrac ing their steps, they arrived at the mouth at 4 oclock the next day, They say there seemed to. be no end to tlie cave, In some places the passage is hundreds of feet wide.

For catai rind aHections and Mire throat a spray of warm water and salt is al most a siweific, and is one of the stand ard prescriptions of the "nose and throat" specialists. For hay fever and those other slighter forms of nasal sensitive ness that induce a constant sneezing there is no remedy more quickly pallia tive and often curative than the vapor of heated salt and alcohol. Put b th in a tin vessel and heat over a flame. When there is a good showing of vapor place the vessel underneath a covering that envelopes the head as well. and inhale the vapir through lioth nose and throat. For influenza and ordinary colds this treatment is also excellent Salt water baths are an excellent tonic; taken warm they are delightfully re freshing when one is boated or tired, and taken cold they are the best preventive in all the world of too great suscepti bility to colds. One delicate woman who j used to insist that she "caught cold on coming into the world and had never been without one since" became as in different to damp and draughts as a sailor after a year's trial of salt baths. For those who have sensitive gums in clined to bleed on the slightest provoca tion, a mouth wash of salt and cold water awl once or twice a day will har den the gums and prevent soreness. As salt Is a styptic any slight bleeding may usually be checked by treating tho jart with salt and water. Persons who havo tender feet will find them growing much less sensitive day by day if treated to a daily brisk rubbing w ith cold salt and water. There is an old lielief that salt water injures the hair, and a delightful old lady once explained to the writer the reason therefor. "You see," she said, "tlie salt in the water is stronger than the hair in your head, and so the salt just draws the hair right out. Assuming this to be true, that salt water will draw the hair out of the head when it isn't otherwise spe cially inclined toward coming good homeopathic reasoning we come to the conclusion that when the hair insists up hi coming out of its own accord a vigorous treating with salt and water will put a stoji to it. Whether tlie rea soning bo true or not, the fact is. Not all the tonics you can buy at the hair dresser's will do your hair half the good, if it manifests a tendency toward falling out, that a daily scalp bath of strong salt and water will. Besides all this, salt is good for the stomach. A pinch of it in hot water, taken either just before or just after a meal, is a valuable aid to digestion, and a cupful of very hot salt water will some times quiet the most persistent nausea. Anything more that salt will do? Yes, the most grateful of all cure the tooth ache sometimes. Will it really do that? A little girl who was told to put some in an aching tooth says so. "I just put in a little salt, " she said, "and in a few minutes I felt the naughty aching nerve curl right down and go to sleep. " But there is one caution toolfer. How ever lieneficial the theraiieutic action of salt may be, there is no question but salt taken into the system with the food in too great quantities is extremely harm ful. It was the excessive use of salt, quke as much as the nervous strain of his campaign, that killed Horace Gree ley, and there be those who dectore that with many women the use of salt is species of dissipation. Too much salt in the system dries up the blood and the healthv moisture of the membranous eurf aces, and Is evidenced by a dead yel low pallor of the skin, with a blanching of the lins and cheeks and a morbid craving for the condiment which noth ing but its use in enormous quantities will satisfy. Men of Weight and Wisdom. Tlie faces of the Justices of the United States Supreme Court fairly shine with good living, and upon each you see tho writing that the owner has not a single care and tliat lie has for life $10,000 a year. Justice auiier nas receiveu .oo, r r 1 1 , AAOA 000 in salaries from Uncle Sam, ana jut tice Field has carried in his inside pocket Uncle Sam's good drafts for 370, 000. Bradley has received $200,000 from the Government, Harlan $130,000, Gray $90,000, and Blatch ford's receipts have amounted to $80,000 in cold casli. Each will receive 10,00-1 more for every year that he lives, and he wdl get this whether he remains upon the bench or not If he leaves it the Government will have to get a new $10,000 man to take his place, and Uncle Sam will be out 30,000 instead of 10,000 as long as he lives. There is no doubt that any one of these men can make more than this amount at the law and each is well worth the salary paid him. Philadel phia Press. Brttiiklng Up the Map. If tins tiling keeps on, said a nnp printer the other day, "we'll all hare to go into bankruptcy. We hadn't pot our United States maps fixed up with North and South Dakota before the Brazil rev olution knocked South America endwise, and now Wyoming and Idaho axe turned into States. Africa, has to be fixed over every sfx months, and the latest and most serious of all is in tins Gorman-En glish arrangement to knock out Heligo- land from the British empire. That ton t a big change, but it is plenty big enough to spoil all our maps of Europe. It would almost pay the map makers to chip in and buy the nasty little island in order to make a present of it to England, and ive the expense of getting up new mapa of Europe.
