possible revolutions in the faces of
the foreign delegates at the open-

naval holiday and the scrapping of
the partially-built capital ships.

And then. In a sharper tone, as he

"The Death Watch"
The death tick as it is sometimes called. A cer-
tain beetle (the anobium tassellatum) calling to his
mate, strikes his head against the wall with regular
watch-like ticks. The watchers about the sick bed hear
it—tick-tick! It is a chilly sound at midnight when
as a watcher you sit out the night by a sick brother's
side. "He is going to die sure—don't you hear the
death watch a-ticking?" says the kind old woman next
door, who has come in to see "how he is."
I want to tell you a few surer signs of coming
death than the ticking of a harmless beetle in the wall.
Headache, coated tongue, bad breath, belching gas,
bloating of abdomen, swelling of feet and ankles, puff-
ing under the eyes, itching blotches of the skin, back-
ache, dizziness, floating spots before the eyes. These
are all sure signs of something wrong. Self-poison
(auto-intoxication) is a sure way of commiting suicide.
