VIOLENT and destructive storms of wind, rain and lightning passed over Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois and Dakota last week. In some instances hail storms have been unpleasantly numerous in sections of New England and New York State. During one of these, a bolt of lightning entered the signal station at Mt. Washington (N. H.), and damaged the instruments and hurt a railroad employé, James Pamden. Both of his legs were paralyzed. The man was carried to the base, and his feet placed in the ground, the theory being that the electricity in his system would be drawn out in the same way as from a grounded telegraph wire. The treatment proved successful. Slight damage was done in the hotel by the same bolt. After the storm the ground was covered with hail to the depth of an inch or more, and the mountains appeared to be snow-capped.

LICKING adhesive stamps and envelopes is a perilous practice, against which the public needs to be put on its guard. We have seen bad consequences ensue from the habit, which is a very common one. who are frequently thus moistening the gum on adhesive surfaces suffer from local irritation, sore tongues, and the like, while every now and again we hear of special propagation of disease by the habit. A curious illustration of the way in which disease may be communicated was recently brought under our notice. An envelope received from a person who habitually took large quantities of morphia hypodermically was reclosed by the person who opened it by licking the adhesive surface, with the result of making him violently sick. The mere touch of the tongue of the taker of morphia had rendered the gum intensely nauseous. If this could happen, obviously there must be grave peril of the transmission of disease by such means. It is not likely that many persons would even incidentally reclose an envelope in this way; but the incident may serve to show how desirable it is not to run the risk of even taking in the impurities of new adhesive matters from, stamps and envelopes. It is very easy to avoid the practice. The danger only needs to be pointed out.—Lancet.
