YOUNG TRAVELLERS.—A correspondent writes to the Times from East Coshum, Hants It may be inter-, esting to some of your readers to be in ormed that on a small piece of frame-work underneath a J^d-class smoking earriage on the London and Southwestern Railway, a water-wagtail has built her nest and reared a young and thriving family of four. The tram runs regularly from Cosham to Havaut five hmes. a day, ia ( all about forty miles, and the station-master informs me that during the absence of the train the male bird keeps close to the spot. waiting, with manifest interest and anxiety, the return of his family from their periodical tours." A CURE FOR SCARLET FEVER.—Mr H. Pigeon. M.R.C.S., saysThe marvellous success which has attended my treatment of scarlet fever by sulphur in- duces me to let my medical brethren know of my plan, that they may be able to apply the same remedy without delay. All the cases in which I used it were very well marked, and the epidermis on the arms in each case came away like the skin of a snake. The following was the exact treatment followed in each caae: Thoroughly anoint the patient twice daily with sulphur ointment; give five or ten grains of sulphur in a little jam three times a day. Sufficient sulphur was burnt twice daily (on coals on a shovel) to fill the room with the fumes, and, of course, was thoroughly inhaled by the patient. Under this mode of treatment each case improved immediately, and none were over eight days in making a complete recovery, and I firmly believe in each it was prevented from spreading by the treatment adopted. One case was in a large school. LorwoN PAVED WITH GOLD.—Who would have thought that the watchmakers and workers in gold in the district of Camberwell waste so much precious metal that the parochial dust" contains a most ap- preciable quantity, and that the water in which the workmen wash their hands becomes a kind of Pacto- lus ? But that such is actually the case we are in- formed by a contemporary devoted to metropolitan government aud kindred subjects and it appears that the burning of the sweepings of shops in order to ex- tract the gold has assumed such proportions that it is complained of as a public nuisance, and that the local authorities have called attention to the fact that the water in which the workmen wash their hands is re- tained too long to be pleasant. Here, then, is a new industry, and though nuisances cannot be tolerated in this age of "sweetness and light," it does seem a pity that this fresh enterprise is threatened in our home gold-fields. We hear a good deal about thrift" now-a days, and the" utilisation of waste and yet it would seem that gold is to be carted or washed away out of Clerkenwell on the mere ground of a nui- sance. But perhaps we shall hear more of this mat- ter. The friction of watch-chains and other jewellery in the London streets must be something consider- able. and so all" dust" and sloppings" must be more or less charged with atomic gold. But how is it to be got out without creating a nuisance, or perpetuating ^THROAT IRRITATION.—The throat and windpipe are especially liable to inflammation, causing soreness and dryness, tickling and irritation, inducing cough and affecting the voice. For these symptoms use glycerine in the form of jujubes. Glycerine, m these agreeable confections, being in proximity to the gSnds at tke moment th^y are excited by the act of sucking becomes actively healing. 6d. and Is. boxes (by post for U stamps), « labelled JAMES EPFS & Co.
