When Mary Clairmont's engagement
was proclaimed to the world there was
a general expression of surprise.
Miss Clairmont was only one-and

dewy black ©yes, a skin as fresh as
damask roses, and dark brown hair,
coiled in shining bands at the back of
She had just graduated from Med
field Medical University and had taken
out her diploma as an M. D.
"And only think of it," said Aunt Jo,
bursting into tears of vexation and dis
appointment, "that she must needs go
and ruin all her prospects by getting
engaged to Harry Marlow."
"It does not seem strange, Aunt Jo,
when I think of it," said Dr. Mary,
laughing and blushing. "Six months
ago my profession was all the world to
me. I neither cared or wished for any
thing outside its limits."
"Humph!" growled Aunt Jo; "any
brainless idiot can get married and
keep a man's house and mend his shirts
for him, but you are made for something
higher and more dignified, Mary."
Mary's dew-bright eye:; sparkled.
"Higher, Aunt Jo?" said she. "More
dignified? There you're mistaken.
There's no higher or more dignified lot
in life than that of the true wife of a
"Fiddlesticks !" said Aunt Jo. "As if
every poor fool who was dazzled by the
glitter of a wedding-ring didn't say the
same thing. You've disappointed me,
Mary Clairmont, and I'm ashamed of
you; that is the long and short of it."
"Dear Aunt Jo," said she, "I shall
not let my sword and shield rust, be
lieve me. Harry has only his own tal
ents to advance him in the world, and
it will be at least a year before we shall
be ready to marry. In the meantime I
shall accept the post of visiting physi
cian to the Aldenbury -almshouse, and
practice my profession just the same as
if there were no engagement,"
"I wish to goodness there wasn't,"
said Aunt Jo. "I tell you what, Mary,

could tell the ring of a counterfeit coin
when a customer laid it on the counter.

"The new old woman," repeated Dr.

"That is," explained Mrs. Cunning

old soul, half blind and quite bad with
the asthma. Perhaps you'd better just
see her before you go."
She looked timidly up as Dr. Mary
came in, from under the borders of her

"This is the doctor," said Mrs. Cun
The little woman would have risen
up to make a feeble courtesy, but Dr.
Mary motioned her to keep her seat.
"What is your name?" said she pleas
"Louise Marlow, miss."
"Marlow ? That is an unusual name,
isn't it?" said Mary Clairmont, color
ing in spite of herself.
"We're English, miss," said the old
woman, struggling bravely with her
asthma. "There ain't many of us in
this country. I've a son, miss, in the
law business, as any mother might well
be proud of."
"A son," echoed Mrs. Cunningham,
"and you in the almshouse?"
"Not that it's his fault," the old creat
ure made haste to explain. "My son is
to be married to a fine, proud young
lady, as is fit for any Prince in all the
land, and of course he can't be expected
to burden himself with a helpless old
woman like me. He says I'm to write
and Jet him know how I get along, and
if I'm sick or anything, he'll try to see
me. I sewed carpets until the asthma
got hold of me, and supported myself
comfortably. But of course I couldn't
lay up anything for a rainy day —
could ? And Harry couldn't help me,
>r he's getting ready to be married,
poor lad.* So I went to Dr. Merton,
and asked him did he know of any de
cent place where an old woman like me
could end her days in peace. And he
gave me a card to come here, and some
money to pay my traveling expenses —
Heaven bless him! — and here I am."
Mary Clairmont had listened quietly
to the garrulous tale, but the color had
varied in her cheek more than once as
she stood there.
"Is your son's name Harry Marlow?"
she said, slowly and thoughtfully.
"Yes, miss, at your service," said the
old woman, with a duck of her white
capped head, which was meant to do
duty in place of the impossible court
"Is he like this?" said Dr. Mary, tak
ing a photograph from her pocket.
The old woman with trembling hands
fitted on her iron-rimmed spectacles
and looked at the picture, uttering a
little cry of recognition.
"Sure, miss, it's his own self," she
cried. "You're acquainted with him,
"Somewhat," said Dr. Mary, compos
edly, as she returned the photograph to
"Perhaps you know the young lady
my son is to marry."
"Yes," said Dr. Mary, writing some
thing in her prescription-book. "I have
"Perhaps, miss," faltered the old
woman, "you would give her my hum
ble duty, and tell her I would just like
to see her once, and see what she is
like. There's no fear of my troubling
her, miss, for I mean to end my days
here. But I would like to see her just
once, miss. Would you please write to
my son and tell him where I am? for I
am no scholar myself, and I'm his
mother, after all. And if it wouldn't
be asking too much — "
"I'll write to him," said Dr. Mary,
quietly, and so she went away.
"I never see a lady doctor afore,"
said old Mrs. Marlow, with a long sigh ;
"but she's a pretty creetur, and it seems
good to have her around. I hope she'll
come again soon."
"You may be very sure of that,"
said the matron I brusquely. "Dr. Clair
mont ain't one to neglect poor people
because they are poor."
That evening Aunt Jo, frying crullers
over the kitchen fire, was surprised by
a visit from her niece, who came in all
wrapped in furs, with her cheeks crim
soned with the frosty wintry air.
"Bless me! this ain't you?" said Aunt
Jo, peering over the rims of her specta
"I drove over to see you, Aunt Jo,"
said Mary, "to tell you that you were
right. The metal was counterfeit."
"Eh?" said Aunt Jo, mechanically
ladling out the brown curly crullers,
although she did not look at what she
. "I have written to Harry Marlow,
canceling our engagement," said Dr*
Mary calmly, albeit her voice faltered
a little. "The man who will heartless
ly let his poor old mother go into an
almshouse, sooner than take the trouble
to maintain her, can be no fit husband
for any woman."
And then she sat down by the fire
and told Aunt Jo everything, for crab
bed, crusty old Aunt Jo had been like a
mother to her, and the girl's heart was
full to overflowing.
"When she had ceased speaking Aunt
Jo nodded her head.
"You have done "well and wisely,"
j said she.
Old Mrs. Marlow died that winter in
Aldenbury almshouse, with her head on
Dr. Mary Clairmont's arms and never
knew that her garrulous confession had
deprived her son of his promised wife.
And Mary says, quietly and resolute
ly, that her profession must be husband

niXTS TO BARBERS.
It is safe to say that nine out of ten of
the men one meets on the streets in our
cities shave, or rather are shaved.
Some shave the mustache, some shave
the chin, some the cheeks. Indeed,
one must go into mathematics to the
tables of permutations and combinations
to find how many varieties of shaving
are possible. Woman is accused of be
ing the party who devotes her time to
appearances and frivolities of the mir
ror, but, after all, man does his share
And it is true that shaving is a very
old custom, nor have we anything to
say against it, except that it is unnatu
ral, and is, and should be acknowl
edged to be, a concession to the look
ing-glass and to vanity. But the point
is that, old as is the art, it is a singular
thing how few know how to shave*
"Nearly all men shave in the passive
voice. " This may be taken as the gram
matical phrase, or as an acknowledg
ment of the voice of the barber, which
they have to endure. Each significa
tion is true. And while nearly all men
consent to refer their shaving to a few
who mike it a business, only a fraction
of those few understand their art.
There is a financial blunder at the
bottom of it that makes trouble all
through. The dogma that a shave is a
shave, is a mistake. One man with a
stiff beard and full face will choose to
have his whole expansive countenance
clean shorn; another will shave only
his upper lip. To each it is a "shave,"
and each is charged alike. One ma
require thirty minutes' attention, the
other ten minutes. The first will dull a
razor, the second not affect its edge.
To each it is 10 cents.
Now, a barber's working-day, we will
assume, is ten hours long. If he is oc
cupied three-quarters of this time, he
must be busier than usually appears.
This gives him seven hours' labor, and,
if he struck a day of half-hour faces,
his whole receipts would be $1.40. If
his luck gave him ten-minute cases, he
would take in $4.20. Even this would
not pay were it not for the seductive
side issues — the hair-cuts and shampoos
of the trade — that bring in more per
hour than the fundamental industry.
Now, as the price and circumstanoes
of shaving go, it is a constant hurry to
finish a man, as shaving scarcely pays
at the best, and if he is one of the
most important subjects full shave
and stiff beard — is a loss to work
upon him. To shave him carefully
costs too much time and costs the edge
of the razor. To skim over his face,
cutting off sections of beard here and
there and leaving odd oases of hair
along the deserts of the cheek, saves the
razor and spoils the person who pays
for the operation, and who should not
be entirely forgotten. The scale of
prices ought to be regulated by what
one gets, and barbers ought to have the
courage to charge for what they do.
A GOOD LITTLE BOY.
An Austin mother said to her eldest
boy, the other night, at the supper ta
"Why, Franky, I never knew you be
fore to ask for preserves a second time."
Franky didn't say much, but his lit
tle brother Tommy, who was innocent
of the ways of bad boys, spoke up,
with a guileless smile on his pure little
face, and said :
"That's because Franky lost the key
he made to open the pantry. That's
why he never used to want much pre
serves at the supper table. He used to
get all he wanted before supper, but
now he can't open the pantry."
After Franky's father had adminis
tered the proper corrective, and the
stricken youth was left alone in the
shed to repent of his crime, Tommy re
marked to himself, as he sat down to
study his Sunday-school lesson :
"I expect poor Franky is sorry he
didn't give me some of them preserves
when I asked him for them. He will

gathered into sacks, siturated with salt,
and placed in a heated trench, covered
with hot stones, for fifteen minutes, and
are then eaten as shrimps, or they are
ground and put into soup or mush.
This tribe also feed upon ants, catching
them by spreading a dampened sum or
fresh-peelel bark over their hill?, which
immediately attracts the inhabitants to
its surface. When filled, the cover is
carefully removed and the adhering in
sects shaken into a light sack, where
they are confined until dead, and are
then thoroughly sun-dried and laid
away. Bushels are thus gathered . an
nually, and are not more offensive than
snakes, lizards and crickets, which the
tribe also eat. Grasshoppers are
pounded up with service, hawthorn or
other berries. The mixture is made
into small cakes, pressed hard and dried

THE GOLD EX GATE.
The name so popularly borne by this
unique watery avenue provokes but
little inquiry into its origin. Having
met with unvaried failure in my inquiries
among San Franciscans as to its origin,
I gave my studies a literary scope and,
after much searching, found the source
of its euphonious title, in Gen. Fre
mont's "Geographical Memoir of Cali
fornia," written in 1847, wherein he con
fers upon the wonderful strait the name
of "Chrysopalce — the Golden Gate."
The happy feature of the name did not
then occur to the General, nor to any
one else, in its full force, for he deemed
it, doubtless, merely the gate to the
golden West — the exit to the realms of
the radiant sunset; but, with the dis
covery of the sources of the golden
streams which discharge their waters
through its portals, in the years imme
diately succeeding — and the entry, over
it surface, of many adventurous seek
ers after the "Golden Fleece" of modern
times, the appropriateness and happy
significance of the appellation conferred
by the hero of the California campaign
of 1846 became more strikingly obvi
PEDIGREE OF COWS.
Pedigree is a very essential element
in the value of cows. But it is also
true and no,less important to know that
grade animals in a well- managed dairy
can ba made, as a rule, quite as pro
ductive as thoroughbreds, . and often
more so. Yet this does not at all imply
that the latter can be dispensed with,
for we cannot have a good quality of
grades without a good strain of blood
to start from. While it is conceded
that pedigree is one of the factors in
the value of a good cow, it is not by
any means the only factor. Maximum
results in the dairy are not the sole
outcome of any single condition. They
depend not merely on the capacity and
breed of the cow, but also and equally
en the intelligence and good manage
of the owner; and, what is equally
true, but seldom considered, even the
capacity of the cow is itself to a large
extent the product of hum in skill. —

WHAT A DEER SEES AXD HEARS.
When a deer is much hunted his ears
become exceedingly acute. Mr. Van
Dyke has seen one spring from his bed
and run away at race-horse speed before
he was within 200 yards of the animal,
although he had touched not a single
bush or twig in approaching the game,
and although he was positive that a
man could not at twenty yards' distance
have heard the soft tread of moccasins
en the light snow. Deer, too, are able
to measure with intuitive correctness
the distance and character of sounds.
They will often lie all day within hear
ing of the normal sounds of a settler's
cabin, the soy.nd of the woodman's ax
and the shouts of the teamster. As a
rule, too, the crash of a squirrel's jump,
the roar of thunder, the snapping of
trees with frost, their creaking or fall
ing in the wind, does not alarm them in
the least. Yet the faintest pressing of
the leaves beneath the hunter's mocca
sin may instantly send them flying. A
deer can also see a long way. On one
occasion Mr. Van Dyke saw one watch
ing a brother sportsman nearly a mile
away, whose motions he could hardly
himself make out. It is true that for
recognizing an object at rest the eyes of
a deer are about as dull as those of a
dog. If unalarmed, he will not distin
guish a man from a stump on open
ground, if the man is seated and per
fectly motionless. On the other hand,
to catch a motion, a deer's eyes are
marvel ously quick, and the fact that he
is generally at rest while the hunter is
moving gives him an immense advan
tage. Even the slow lifting of your
head over a ridge, or the slow dragging
of your limbs over the trunks of trees,
or the slow advance of your creeping
body along the ground, is almost in
stantly detected, unless the motion hap
pens to be made while the deer have
their heads down, feeding or walking.
BOYS ASD GIRLS.
Why do more boys die than girls
For every 100 girls born into the
world there are 104 boys, and it used
to be imagined that the extra four boys
were supplied in order to meet the wear
and tear of life which must be borne
by the bread-winners of the world. But
the odd thing to which Dr. Biddle calls
attention in a medical contemporary is
that the extra four per cent, of boys ia
wiped out by death before they attain
the age of 5 years. Why is this?
Dr. Biddle makes two suggestions —
first, that the greater "waste" of boys
may be due to their higher organism;
and, secondly, that it may be "due to
the fact that our little boys are given
over to the tender mercies of mothers
and maids instead of being reared by
those who understand them." "Those I
who understand them" would seem to
refer to persons of their own sex, so
that Dr. Biddle wo old* seem to look
with favor upcn the appointment of
male nurses ior male infants. The non
medical observer would be inclined to
accept heavy odds that, if Dr. Biddle's
suggestion were acted upon, the "waste"
of the higher organism, instead of being
reduced, would increase at a very
alarming ratio indeed.— London Pall
A LIVE DEER LOCKED WITH A DEAD
In Chesterfield county, Va., two
hunters ran upon two deer in a swamp,
one with ten points and the other with
eight. For some cause or other, the
buck with eight points had killed the
one with ten points with one of its
prongs. The prong entered near the
eye and came out near the ear. By
some means the prongs of each of the
bucks became interlocked, and had evi
dently been so for several days, as the
dead animal had been dragged a con
siderable distance, and had been killed
long enough to become offensive. The
live buck, which had undoubtedly suf
fered for food, was in a very poor and
emaciated condition, and was shot and
killed before the marksman could recog

most bitter enemy, who will give the
printing to the other paper if he can, is
on the ticket, and the editor hopes that
the low-down reptile may be beaten out
of sight. In the case of distinguished
orators, the remark, "The Hon. Mr.
Blank was attacked with a sudden in
disposition and did not speak," means
that the venerated statesman was too
drunk to hold his head up. The ob
servation means the same thing when
applied to the lights of the American
stage. "We failed to catch the last
words of the speech" means that elo
quence at the critical period was
drowned in "budge." "We regret that
we have not space to publish the gen
tleman's eloquent effort in full" means
that, in the editor's opinion, the speech
would have made a reflective mule leave
his oats, and that it would be an out
rage on the public to print it. "We
may refer to the address hereafter"
means that the newspaper man feels
happy in getting out of it this time, and
trusts that perdition may seize him if
he ever mentions the matter again.
In obituary notices, "congestion of the
brain," when applied to a gen
tleman of easy views in regard to
drinks, means delirium tremens, and
"he was his own worst enemy" means
that the deceased was a drunkard, and
the worst enemy of the people who
loaned him money. "He had his faults ;
who of us had not is an equivalent
expression. In regard to performances,
dramatic and otherwise, "those who
failed to be present missed a rich treat"
means that everybody "failed." "The
audience was small, but appreciative,"
means that nobody was present except
the holders of complimentaries. " Owing
to the inclemency of the weather, the
audience was not what it would have
been" means that nobody would have
been there had the sky been as clear as
crystal, and the "neighborhood been
fanned by spicy breezes" that, accord
ing to the hymn-book, "blow softly o'er
Ceylon's isle." In the way of dramatic
criticism, "Mr. Montgomery shows
some crudity and inexperience, which
will doubtless disappear with time and
study," means that Mr. M. is a hopeless
and irredeemable stick. Finally, "a
scandal in high life has been brought to
J our notice, of which we will have more
to say in a few days," that means
well, that means — Atchison

! Printing had been in existence sev
eral years before any system of punctu
ation as generally adopted. A
straight stroke passing obliquely
through the line generally indicated a
pause, and a full point closed a para
graph. A colon was occasionally intro
duced, and the "Lactantius," printed at
Subiaco, in 1465 (the first book printed
in Italy), has a full point, colon and
note of interrogation.
But improvements by one printer
were not followed by others, and it was
not until about the year 1470 that we
approach to the mode of punctuation
adopted at the present day.
The first book printed in France was
the "Liber Epistolarum" of Gasparinus
Barz'zius, which was produced by three
Germans, Cnntz, Gering and Frei
burger, and contains the full point,
semicolon, comma, parenthesis, note
of interrogation and note of exclama
tion. . But the semicolon appears to
have more force than the full point,
