THE TEA WAS HOT.
A New Yorker, looking for rooms
for winter quarters, struck a good
looking lnmllady on Shawmut ave
nue, and, after terms were arranged
for "board and lodging," remarked
that lie -wanted something hot for
supper, and was met with the reply
they always had it. On taking his
scat last evening, with a slim-looking
spread before him, he remarked
to tho girl that he expected some
thing hot, when Bridget said : "Fots
the matter wid the tay?" Boston
RELIGION ONCE A WEEK.
There is something terrible in
this. God's house stands locked
and barred all the week. It looks
down upon the heedless throng that
ever passes by, without one rebuke
for their heedlessness. "Worse than
this, it seems to teach that religion
is not a 'part of life; that all the
doors of industry and commerce
and amusement must stand wide
open daily, but the church door
must be swung open only one day in
seven. Why should men give any
heed to the mute exponent of Chris
tianity that looks down upon them,
with its carved doors, and pictured
windows, and sculptured stones, but
showing no ign of life? Church'
TAKE YOUR LIFE PRESERVER ALONG.
Sea water lias been converted into
a beverage. A little citric acid or
citrate of silver is added lo. the
briny liquid, chloride of silver is
precipitated, and a harmless mineral
water is produced. An ounce of
citrate renders a half-pint of water
drinkable. Seven ounces would fur
nish a shipwrecked man with water
for a week. The question is how to
secure the citrate to the shipwrecked
man. It is recommended that those
who go to sea carry with them a
bottle of citrate protected by an
India-rubber covering, or that such
bottles should be furnished in life
preservers. In the hitter case, how
ever, the people about to be ship
wrecked must not leave the life pre
servers behind. If, with presence
of mind, they remember to take
them, all the agonies of thirst por
trayed in nautical stories may re
main unrealized fiction. Ohicayo
IMPROVING ON AN AUTHOR.
Willric Collins had reserved all
rights to his novel, "Man andAVifc,"
but unfortunately he dramatized his
own work. An infringement speed
ily took place. Wilkie Collins sued.
The spoiler defended himself, and
bet up in his defense that his adap
tation was better than that of Mr.
Collins. He had improved upon the
denouement, he claimed. The judge
agreed with him, and gave verdict
for the defendant.
"But," expostulated the novelist,
I cxpicssly 'leserved all rights.'"
"That is not disputed," replied
, the judge grimly.
."" "Then what is the use of my re
serving any rights?"
"I don't know," said the judge
quietly. "You have written an ex
cellent novel. You signified your
intention to dramatize it. The pre-
sumption was, that the public would
benefit most by your dramatizing it.
That presumption has been rebut
ted," continued his Honor, growing
more stern, "Your machine has been
improved upon !" Jnpleskle.

of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a sin render value; arc Indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d The premiums on a Tontine po
licy nre the same as on the Ordinary
Lite, but, while the latter is only pay
able in the event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve and the accu

he can, without any larger premium

paid in casn on maturing Tontine po

holders, so that tho average cost of the
