Danger in a Flower.
At a meetinK of the Hardeners' So
ciety of Herlin. hold recently, a sol
emn warning was read by a member
against the primula obconica, a pale
1 Mae variety nf the popular winter
flower. It seems that ttiis particular
variety, which is very prolific in
bloom, has tiny hairs underneath the
leaves, and when these hairs com in
contact with the human t;kin they
cautie inllami'iiit ion. A member said
that his daughter bad suffered for
three years from this inflammation,
which also affected her hair so much
that td.o became bald. The only alle
viation known for the Inflammation Is

ORIGIN OF "MEAL MONDAY."
Time When Students of Ed'nburgh
University Led Strenuous !,ife.
Students in the Scottish universities
enjoyed their ".Meal Monday" Feb. 9.
but few of the undergraduates remem
bered how the holiday was Instituted.
In the far-off days, when learning was
really nourished on "a little oatmeal."
the students, before leaving home for
the universities, provided themselves
with a ipiantity of meal, sutliclent to
make "halosome parrltch" half
through the session. Hy the end of
January th ir "meal kists" had run
low and "a day off" was given in which
the student was rxpected to journey
half-way home, meeting at this oint
his parent or brother, who brought
with him a second load of the simple
diet. The holiday was fixed on a Mon
day, so as to allow the undergraduate
the benefit of the proccding Saturday
In times past the journeys would often
extend to fifty or Fixty miles. The
mordorn student goes home for
"Altai Monday," but he travels with
a railway ticket and has no thought
of the painful Journeys of his ances

A man who has a speaking acquaint

would lie n good time for inn to buy

stepped into the carriage. Mr. Kocke

She' Wanted to Know.
A Chicago dentist tells this story:
"Some years ago a young woman re
cently from the Emerald isle called at
my office to have some dental work
done. I examined her teeth and found
that among them was one so badly
wasted that It was not worth filling. I
told her this. 'How long,' she asked,
'do you think It would last If It were
filled?' 'I have no Idea,' I replied.
'Not very long, anyway.' 'Well, how
long do you think?' she persisted. 'I
cannot say,' 1 returned. 'I would not
guarantee It for any length of time.'
Still anxious and determined to secure
a favorable and definite answer, she
asked: 'Will It last longer than you
think It will?' "
