THE DEMOCRAT. II. H. ADAMS, Publisher. CAPE C1RARDEAU. MISSOCRL THE SHUT-IN SEASON. A Time That Tries tho Souls of IIoase keepers. The season w hen the chilly weather of autumn begins is an exceedingly try ing one. The fresh, pure air of summer lias flowed in and out of the house, keeping the atmosphere pure. The sud den change to a shut-in season, when the house is not always systematically ventilated, as it should be, is sure to be injurious to health. To add to this any defective plumbing which was innocu ous when the atmosphere was kept pure by currents of fresh air from the outside now becomes dangerous. It i always a safe precaution before closing the house and starting the winter fires to test the sewers. This is very easily done. 1'ut an ounce of oil of cppermiiit in a pail of cold water, (io to the plumb ing at the top of the house, and iour the mixture carefully down the wastcpipe.

Sot Wavterln Disease. Hot -water is one of the most valu able ef household remedies. Whether in the bath, the water bottle, the rub ber bag or in the form of a beverage, it has healing powers that have never been imagined, much less appreciated, j by the majority of persons. Hot baths i will cure many of the ills that flesh is heir to; hot loot baths and a hot water bag at the back of the neck will re lieve almost any ordinary headache. Hot water taken as a morning drink will almost certainly cure dyspepsia and sluggishness of the liver. One hygienic enthusiast declares that the reason so little is said by physicians about the use of hot water is that they would be deprived of so many patients, for it will cure more cases of indiges tion than all of the pills that they can prescribe. There seems to be but lit tle literature on this subject, and one can scarcely understand why, save for the reason given above. As for reg ular water-cure treatment, there aie many publications on that ...

But he closed up early. gs were flying at him from all di rections and he was a sorry-looking Bight when he reached the friendly belter of the hotel. He had imposed upon the confidence of the unsophisticated and the shower of 4rgs was their way of expressing their righteous indignation. The "doctor's" modus operandi was oicething like this: He had a corn ealve that was unequaled and unap pro:ichable in its virtues; he wished to advertise it and would, for ten cents, giv a sample of the salve and a check, m the presentation of which later he would give a present.

r 1 9 Fixing the Price of Wheat. The leading organ of the Briresh grain trade, the. Mark Lane 'Ex press," suggest the formation of a "central chamber" representing t'ae wheat producers of different nations, which shall keep its constituency in formed of the proper time to withhold the product from the market. In this way, it is contended, the prices of wheat could be regulated for all the world, and kept up to a profitable point, in spite of the conditions which cow depress values from time to time and make wheat-raising a loosing business. The scheme looks plausible at first glance, bat, like somany other projects that look well on the surface, it will not bear close inspection, There is no reason to believe that the mil lions of wheat-growers in different countries could be induced to act to gether in such a way, and to be guid ed by the advice of such a body to an extent that would make the undertak ing a success. The planters of the South have tried several times to ap ply u pol...
