T TSE CUTICURA SOAP, assisted by Cuticura. Ointment,
II the great skin cure, for preserving, purifying, and beauti-
fying the skin of infants and children, for rashes, itchings,
and chafing;s, for cleansing; the scalp of crusts, scales, and daa-
druff, and the stopping; of falling hair, for softening, whitening,
and soothing red, rough, and sore hands, and for all the purposes
of the toilet, bath, and nursery. Millions of Women use Cuticura
Soap in the form of baths for annoying irritations, inflammations,
and excoriations, for too free or offensive perspiration, in the form
of washes for ulcerative weaknesses, and for many sanative,
antiseptic purposes which readily suggest themselves to women,
especially mothers. No amount of persuasion can induce those
who have once used these great skin purifiers and beautifiers to
use any others, especially for preserving and purifying the skin,
scalp, and hair of infants and children. Cuticura Soap combines
delicate emollient properties derived from Cuticura, the great skin
cure, with the purest of cleansing ingredients and the most refresh-
ing of flower odours. No other medicated soap is to be compared
with it for preserving, purifying, and beautifying the skin, scalp,
hair, and hands. No other foreign or domestic toilet soap, how-
ever expensive, is to be compared with it for all the purposes of
the toilet, bath, and nursery. Thus it combines in ONE SOAP
at ONE PRICE, the BEST skin and complexion soap, the BEST
toilet and baby soap in the world.

A Faculty That !* Enjoyed fiy Ani-
mal* But not 1 y Men.
That civilizes man has lost a sixth
sense, which his remote and savage
ancestors possessed, is the recently
published theory of a French scientist
named Reynaud. It is the sense of di-
rection—the faculty which enables ani-
mals to find their way—and it is locat-
ed, according to this authority, in the
semi-circular canals of the inner ear.
These are three little passages, found
in man and other vertebrates, which
are Ailed with a fluid called endo-
lymph. Any injury done to their struc-
ture by accident or disease, as has been
proved by many experiments, impairs
the power. They have nothing what-
ever to do with hearing, but are "as-
sociated with equilibrium,” and to
“furnish images of movement and dla- ,
placement in space.”
Thanks to this organ, animals are
able to retrace, with an accuracy that
seems marvelous, routes over which
they have once passed. The lost dog
goes back invariably to the place where
it last saw its master. The horse, in
like manner, when the reins are loosed
on its neck, finds its way to the stable
with the constancy of the magnetic
needle turning to the pole. A pigeon,
carried by rail in a closed basket for.N^
hundreds of miles, and then liberated,
will go back to the starting point, not
by the shortest path, but following
the line of the railroad. The same
swallows come every year to the same
When the time for departure comes,
migratory birds of the same species in- •
habiting the same region come to-
gether for the journey, and those
which have already made the voyage
take the lead, retracing the path by
which they came a few months before.
The young ones follow. In the same
way migrations of fishes are accom- •
plished, and knowledge of the routes
Invariably pursued by the finny schools
is of very practical value to the flsher-
men. Cormorants anil other Ashing
birds follow for months the tracks of
the migratory Ashes, and know how to
get back to their homes when tha
fishing is over. Like the fish anil the
quadruped, the bird returns to the
same point by the same route.
The animal, whether aquatic', aerial,
or terrestrial, according to Dr. Key-
• naud's theory, “carries the way back;
with it,” nor, ■ in his opinion, is man
without a remnant of this interesting
sixth sense, which, he asserts, is found
in a greater or less degree in many
savages. But it is not properly to be
regarded as a phase of intelligence, be-
ing most highly developed in those
races which are lowest in the scale of

Sets Off Powerful Hooter Which Arouses
A house Atted with the latest bur-
glar alarm will be safe from the fra-
ternity, if they know of its presence,
as soon as they have had a very lit-
tle experience of it. The house is pro--
vided with a sort of wire entangle-
ment, so that it i3 impossible to open
a window or door after the apparatus
has been set without setting the alarm
going, and a most formidaole alarm it
'is. In the Arst place a stream of air
is discharged through a very power-
ful hooter, or buzzer, owing to a valve
between the fog horn and a reservoir
of compressed air being opened elec-
trically. At the same time, too, a
powerful electric lamp, placed outside
the house in as inaccessible a position
as possible too minimize as far as may
be the risk of its being tampered with,
is lighted up, so that police or others
attracted by the piercing sound of the
alarm, which can be heard at a great
distance, are guided to the place where
their services are required. It should
be mentioned that only a person know-
ing how can stop the sounding of the
alarm, which otherwise continues till
the air stored in the reservoir is ex-
hausted, say, an hour or so. In that
time it'ean be guaranteed to rouse the
entire neighborhood, even if En-
dymion were included among them, it
is obvious that the contrivance will
serve as a Are alarm as well as against
burglars by using thermostatic ar-
rangement, so that the alarm is set
going when the wires get heated.

An amusing instance of unconscious
soliloquy during a tete-a-tete with a
lady is told by a famous physician, Dr.
Freind. It was in the old convivial \
days, and the doctor was summoned
one evening from a rather too festive
board to the bedside of a lady patient.
He felt her pulse, but for the life of
him could not count its beats. “Drunk,
by jove!” he soliloquized, and pulled
himself together sufficiently to order
some harmless mixture. His delight
may be imagined when the next morn-
ing, instead of an indignant dismissal
from further attendance he received!1
from his patient a confession that he
had diagnosed her complaint quite cor-
Imitated an Execution.
Gov. Davis, of Arkansas, will at the
next session of the legislature urge thq/
repeal of the public execution law. He
is moved to this determination by the
fact that a boy named Lemoyne Jayne,
after witnessing the execution of a
negro the other day, hanged himself
while he and his playmates were imi-
tating the execution.
