SUDES SWEEP INTO THE CULEBRA CUT. Two Million Tons of Earth and Gravel Nay Delay Completion of the Canal. Colon, R. P., Sept. 3.—Twelve hun- dred thousand cubic yards of earth and gravel have been swept into Culebra cut by two great slides. The larger one, carrying 900,000 yards of debris, is causing canal en- gineers serious embarrassment and bids fair to add another extension to the time limit for the completion of the big ditch. The slide partly buried a steam shovel and endan- gered a number of workmen. It also carried down a big observation platform. The earth settled to the bottom of the can^l, causing the latter to bulge up. The previous slide came six days earlier, north of Empire, damaging the diversion or drainage canal, which is considera- bly higher than the big ditch, and letting in a big volume of water. Much of this had been pumped out when the second slide occurred. The slides have had another ef- fect which is causing much distress among canal workmen. The two- stor...

WRESTLERS OF JAPAN. Although They Don't Bit*, They Fre- quently Wash Tholr Mouth*. The Japanese claim that the art of wrestling originated in Japan before the Christian era. There are forty-eight formulas by which wres- tlers try to bring opponents to earth —a sort of catch-as-catch-can with forty-eight Queensbeny rules add- ed. Wrestlers are naked, except for • narrow girdle, and consequently it is not easy to get a "hold." The Japanese have about 600 trained wrestlers in the service of the Wrestling association, and in June and January of every year there are great displays at the hall in Tokyo. Beginning at sunrise, the matches continue until the even- ing, and it is not necessary for a fall to take place before a victory can be claimed. On the floor of the amphitheater is a square heap of earth three feet high, and in that square is the wres- tling ring, twelve feet in circum- ference, surrounded by twelve straw bags. Let a wrestled knee touch the ground or the tip of his little...

Hints for the Housekeeper. A large piece of brown paper creased so that it will fill the bot- tom and sides of the bread jar will absorb the extra moisture and keep the bread from moulding. A child's broom should find a place in the bathroom. It can be kept in the clothes hamper and will be useful in sweeping under the bath tub. It is a good plan to dip brooms in very hot soap suds once a week. It toughens their bristles and the brooms not only last longer, but also sweep better than if they were kept perfectly dry, When moths get into dresser drawers, sweep them clean, expose the wood to the sunlight and with an atomizer spray turpentine where the pests are liable to be. A light- ed match or sulphur candle will kill them. Warm bread or cake, and, in fact, warm food of any kind, should never be put away in a cov- ered dish. The steam makes moulding certain.

£' ; é-r ÜÍ: #r'í'v. NEURALGIA. i I I k J i Ifct Way Thia Painful Nwva Traubla Should Ba Traatad. A sufferer from neuralgia ought to seek the advice of a physician at «ace, for no one but a physician can tell what causes the pain. If the neuralgia is. the "sympto- matic" form,caused by some organic- trouble, of which it is a symptom, treatment mast be directed to the removal of the underlying disease. If, on the other hand, it is caused by functional disturbance, such as malnutrition, debility or anaemia, or is the result of exhausting illness, rheumatism or malaria, the treat- ment must aim at building up the general system. Again, neuralgia may be what is called a "reflex*—that is, a warn- ing of something wrong in the ad- jacent parts. Then the region of the aching nerve must be searched for the cause. It may be a matter for the dentist, the oculist or the laryngologist. When the tooth has been filled, the eves properly fitted with glasses or the nasal cavity at- ienden to the ne...

It has a* strength of fiber that cannot be produced here, and, as it is handnmae, it u more costly than any other kind. This paper is made from the bark of certain Japanese plants, which is cut up into strips, some of which may be a yard long. These strips are then tied op into bundles and put to soak in a weak solution of lye, by which they are softened sufficiently to be worked without breaking. The real work of making the pa- per then begins. The strips of bark are laid fiat and separated into fine fibers with a special form of mal- let, and this step in the process is so carefully done that the fibers ob- tained are much, longer than those roduced in...
