A ClilId'M Advlco on Mosquito lilies.
The mosquito crop in Now Jersey is
nearly exhausted for tho year, and the
annual importation of quips concerning
the merry little insects is running low
in the newspaper markets. There re
mains one to be published, however.
Tho following story is a peculiarly funny
mosquito story by reason of its truth
Two little Jersey tots compared the num
ber of mosquito bites upon their respect
ive bodies as they laj; in their cots over
beyond tho meadows one night recently.
"How many bites have you got, Toot
eie?" said one.
"Thirteen," came promptly the an
swer; and then, "How many have yon
got to scratch?"
"I've got fourteen," was the sobbing
Then came tho tiny comforter with the
following ndvire: "Don't scratcu your
bites, dearie, because all the moieyou
don't scratch them all tho worse they
don't hurt." New York Tribune.

filling up on the unripe fruit was seized
with pangs of remorse and died before
tho editors could got out of town. Suita

by the proper committee in returning
thanks to their entertainers, and as one

the kIoss slipper of Cinderella, and the
trials and triumphs of the Sleeping Beauty,
are as familiar to thent as to ourou-ti little
ones Perhaps some who may read theso

have sec' ae parlors of ouo of the leading

But Peru lies a few degrees south of the
equator, and while the American boy is
burnishing his skates or putting his sled
in order, his Peruvian brother is hastening
to tho sea.sh.ore, and the summer bathing
sca.son is at its height. Christmus gifts
are not so plentiful, the shops not so
crowded with puzzled customers, nor their
windows so Oiled with dazzling novelties
as with us; but a beautiful custom obtains
there, as throughout all South American
countries As tho sexson rolls on npuco
and the sacred anniversary draws nigh,
one of the largest rooms is set apart, and a
stago improvised, on which is, built up, in
varying degrees of' detail, according to tho
ability of the family.-a representation of

nre lavished on the decoration of the scene,

breeze from the Pacific, which rails plao
idly along the shores of Peru Ah the

jeweled cross of the southern hemisphere
risa in the sky, the uveuues of the plaza
begin to 1111, bright eyes flash brief glances
of recognition, friends exchange pleasant
greetings as they meet, the well trained
bands of the garrison play softly In tho
summer air, until ut last the sweet vrfleed
boll of the cathedral tolls the "Animas."
There is n momentary hush, a whispered
prayer for the souls of loved ones gone be

away, and as the moon rises soft und full
over the distant peaks of tho Andes wo
turn from tlte scene, bearing with us u
pleasant memory of a Christmas In Peru.
