Historian- In 1S6*. when the German em-
peror aent hU brother and a fleet to Hong
Kong, Trime Henry gave a dinner to the
officers of the foreign warships, which was
attended by Adiulral Dewey and other
Americans. Following the ueaunl custom.
Prince Henry proposed toasts to the na-
tions whose representatives w< re his gueats.
Diplomatic etiquette stipulated that these
nations should be mentioned In alphabetical
order, the French names being used. The
first toast was proposed to Germany (AUe-
magne). Neit cawe England (AiiRieterre),
followed ly Spain (Ksp:\gno>. Since the
French name for the United States is Flats
I'nls, the toant to this mttiou should have
followed that to Kspagne. Nevertheless,
Prince Henry next proposed France. Few
men were e<j punctilious ou diplomatic eti-
quette as Admiral Dewey, nnd at this af-
front he arose, with his officers, and quietly
left the dinner table. Naturally the Incident
produced a sensation. Prince Henry sent
an officer to apologize, but Admiral Dewey,
again the soul of puuctiliousnexs, refused to
accept an aiwlogy at second hand. Then
Prince Henry made a ceremonial cal! and
nitologised. He explained the Incident a*
due to a temporary mental abenatiou.

What Is Bfle? What Ire Its Uses?
Bile Is the secretion or product of
the cells of the great gland called
the liver. The ducts or vessels Into
which It is discharged ever grow
larger and larger, finally forming one
main stream, like a river and Its
tributaries, which empties into the
duodenum, the initial portion of tho
email intestine. *
Its outflow is most abundant when
the duodenum receives the partially
digested food from the stomach, a
portion of It being switched off, from
time to time, to the little sac or
reservoir called the gall-bladder.
I suppose this may act as a reserve
In case a reserve Is necessary, but
It is not essential, for the gall-blad-
der may be thrown ont of commis-
sion by disease or removed entirely
by the surgeon.
Bile may be yellow, green, or light
brown and can be seen through the
translucent wall of the intestine as
it flows into that organ, when the
abdomen is opened for surgical pur-
It is a complex substance contain-
ing cholesterin, bile salts, etc. It is
a digestive secretion, but not a fer-
ment like the secretions of the stom-
ach and pancreas.
It is produced at the rate of several
pints daily and makes up In quantity
for what it lacks in strength.
It permeates and dilutes the food,
especially the fats, and undergoes
several chemical changes.
Most of It has accomplished its ob-
ject before it reaches the end of its
travels in the thirty feet of Intes-
tine, and has been reabsorbed into
the blood in another form, reaching
Its way back again to the liver to be
redeposlted as liver sugar or glyco-
gen and then reconverted Into bile.
Sometimes an obstruction in the
bile ducts prevents egress of the bile,
In which case some of It is taken up
by the blood-vessels of the liver, car-
ried by the blood over the body and
nome of its constituents deposited in
the skin, the muscles, and the con-
junctiva of the eyes, producing jaun-
It may also be discharged as a
greenish fluid with the Intestinal
In peritonitis it may be forced
back from the intestine Into the stom*
ach and cause vomiting.
This is always a symptom which
excites alarm. If the gall-bladder
becomes infected, the bile It contains
becomes thickened and gall stones
There may be only two or three
large ones or there may be hundreds
of small ones.
They produce agonizing pain as
they try to get into the intestine and
may cause death unless removed by
The liver or gall-bladder may ba
the seat of cancer, or of huge abs-
cesses, and it may be attacked by
hook worm or other parasites.
One must lead -a simple and regu-
lar life to keep the liver working
properly and keep off these terrible
Even »with such precautions M Is
not always possible to have a sound
and healthy liver.
Cae of the best ways to bring oa
serious disease of the liver is to
drink an abundance of almost any
kind of alcoholic liquor.
Drunkard's liver or cirrhosis is
sure to come if you only drink
enough alcohol and for a sufficient
Many of the diseases which affect
the flow and action of the bile aro
curable if they are taken la season
and properly treated, but other aro
Incurable from the start and probably
will always be.
Life may not continue when the
liver refuses to do its work, for it
is one of the organs the body cannot
possibly dispense with.

spots, have nothing whatever to do
with the liver. They are simply pig-

trora the blood and deposited In the
skin. They can be removed by a
knife or a caustic If they annoy you
sufficiently to call for such treatment.

thare was abowt half the cake on

whitch Hons of us cood jump oaver
it and we cood awl do that, coven
Hopper cood do that, for a crutch Is
a big help if you are jumping over

horse whilst we maid up our minds
what to do next, and then Nibs had
a pritty good idee for him and he cut
the horses tale off with my father's

he got a peece of broomstick and

I love my country dearly, for her
I'd die and bleed; I'd lose a leg, or
nearly, to help her in her need. I
love our starry banner, that flutters,
bright and gay, and in a fervent man-
ner I praise it every day. No man
does louder spieling, or uses words
more fine; I'm so worked up with
feeling, I often shed some brine. Fine
words! You do not heed 'em, but
ask me if I'll buy some U. S. bonds
of freedom—I'd rather bleed and die.
My. life I do not cherish, I'm ready
now to go to some red field and
perish, if that will beat the foe. But
when you ask for money, that is
another tale; ask me for lifeblood,
sonny, but do not ask for kale, I'd
bravely face the foeman, and swat
him till he fell, or stop, with my ab-
domen the deadly bomb or shell; I'd
crouch in reddened water a fortnight
at a time, or wade neck deep In
slaughter, in carnage and in crime.
My country cannot mention a heavy
sacrifice, but I will give attention and
gladly pay the price. I'd lose a leg or
tendon, a tonsil or a toe, to put a
Grecian Bend on the forehead of the
foe; I am no timid bunny, I'd whip
a grizzly bear; but when you ask for
money, why, I have none to spare!

Cattle are apt to get clicked occa-
sionally, especially if certain loods
are within their reach. It is said that
a wilted turnip is one of the worst
articles of food to choke cattle. Melon
rinds, and fruits, sueh as apples, may
sometimes choke cattle.
it is well lo keep a probang, such
as a stiff piece of rubber hose about
two feet long, for just such emergency
as when a cow gets choked.
Sometimes when an article of food
sticks in a cow's throat it may be
forced down into the stomach by a
piece of lard about tbe size of a hen's
egg. The lard is inserted into the
cow's throat. The warmth of the ani-
mal's throat will melt the lard and
lubricate the throat, often forcing tho
When badly choked it may be ad-
visable to put a device in the cow's
mouth to hold the teeth apart, grease
the hand and arm and insert it in the
animal's throat to remove the sub-
stance. If this fails a probang, such
as the piece, of rubber hose, may be
inserted and the object pushed down
into the stomach. There is danger in
using a stiff substance for a probang,
such as a broomstick, as this may
perforate the gullet and kill the cow.
Sometimes milk with a little soap
poured down the throat will give re-
lief. Do not use over a pint,—Fi^rm
