The urinary sand or gravel deposited on the sides or bottom of a receiving vessel
is of two kinds, red, and white; and it is of great importance to distinguish the one

mode of treatment. The symptoms of red gravel are well known. The shade of
colour may vary from a reddish brown, or pink, to a perfect red. Here the urinary
secretion is generally small in quantity, and high coloured, and the disease

crazy puppet hat. The dimple at the base of the fruit looks a little like the one on
Alex's chin. He holds it up. “This is a real strawberry. Look.” “It looks great,” I say. “

Upon its first entrance ,into Darkness, it is absorbed by it, and its splendour
diminishes— it becomes Blue; and continuing to penetrate the Darkness, the
more the latter imbibes it, the more this Blue becomes tinged with Red, until by
force of its own splendour, it conquers the Darkness, and then stands forth as a

a pure Red, and yet it is the same Light which on its first appearance showed

This one does, for, believe me, it was tasted after a perfect wine and I was still

America is the smallest market for Leroy's wines. Most of her wine is sold to top
French restaurants and collectors in Switzerland and Belgium. She knows full
well what she has produced, and she also knows there will be no shortage of

Orange is the first of the secondary colours in relation to light, being in all the
variety of its hues composed of yellow and red. A true or perfect orange is such a
compound of red and yellow as will neutralize a perfect blue in equal quantity
