' How She Wrote lt.
One of the qualities necessary to suc
cess in any line of work is the ability tc
think and act practically upon the every
day questions of life.
A young woman who had charge of
the cataloguing of the accounts of a
Philadelphia bank employed as an as
sistant a girl apparently intelligent and
V well educated, to. whom she gave the
ueces'sary directions for the work. One
; of the bistructions was that, while she
was to waite out the full name where au
abbreviation was used, she must nevei
abbreviate a name.
One day-the young woman in charge
found the following peculiar name and
, -\ adehesa, neatly written out by the as
sistant, "Saml. Brown, trustee for
Georg*' and Minnie Section, Academy of
* Natural Sciences."
Somewhat surprised at the address,
she asked to.ace the ledger from which
it was copied. The ledger read, "Saml.
.Brown, trustee for Geo. and Mn. Sec
tion, Academy of Natural Sciences."
The young woman had never studied
either geology or mineralogy, but when
the matter was explained to her she
found that the -word "Section" is not al
ways a surname, and that "Geo." may
be an abbreviation for something quite
different from George.-Youth's Com

Washington'* First Love Affair.
George Fairfax was the companion of
Washington on his surveying tour for
Lord Fairfax. Washington first met
Mrs. Faii-fax at Belvoir, near Mount
Vernon, when she was Drought home as
the bride of George William Fairfax.
Miss Mary Cary accompanied her sister
Sarah to Belvoir, and there met George
Washington. She was then hut four
teen years of age. Washington was
only sixteen. He had never visited the
low country uear Williamsburg prior to
this, and therefore could not. have met
Sarah Cary until her marriage. It is
said that he fell in love at sight with
Mary Cary, and went so far on his first
visit to Williamsburg as to ask Colonel
Cary for the hand of his daughter.
The big rawboned lad found scant
favor in the eyes of the patrician planter.
He was dismissed in terms so curt that
we must bear in mind paternal pride
and other extenuating circumstances if
we wonld keep intact our idea of a fine
old Virginia gentleman.
"If that is your business here,-sir, 1

. Tradition asserts that the chagrined
suitor took the choleric parent at his
word, and that the next time he looked
upon the face of his early love was when
he passed through Williamsburg on his
return from Yorktown after the surren

Wash Fruit Before Eating lt. .
The following curious instance is re
ported by M. Schnirer of the ease with
which consumption germs may bo dis
seminated. While at work one day in
the laboratory of Weichselbaum, he
sent for some grapes to eat. The fruit
had been kept for some time in a basket
outside the lavatory and was covered
with dust, so that the water in which it
was washed was black. On examining
it he reflected that, inasmuch as the
neighboring street was traversed by con
sumptive, patients going to the clinic,
the dust probably was charged with
tubercle bacilli. To settle this, M.
Schnirer injected into three guinea pigs
ten cubic centimeters of water in which
the grapes had been washed. One ani
mal died- in two days from peritonitis,
the two others died on the forty-eighth
and fifty-eighth days, respectively, pre
senting marked .. tuberculous lesions,
especially at the place of injection.
The. water in which the grapes had
been Washed was taken from tho faucet,
and the glass containing it had been
sterilized; neither the boy who had
bought the grapes, nor the merchant
who had sold them, was consumptive.
The cause of the infection was, beyond
doubt, the dust on the grapes.. This ex
periment illustrates the danger arising
from the dissemination of desiccated
tuberculous sputa in the air.-Hall's

An Anecdote of Washington.
It was while plunging through the
"leaden rain and iron hail," at the battle
of Monmouth that Washington's horse
was shot under him. The chief coolly
stepped from the prostrate charger, and
having received from the hands of an
attendant orderly a fresh horse, ready
caparisoned, he turned to the sable body
servant who followed him close through
all dangers, and without the presence of
whose ebon visage a picture of Wash
ington .and his family would not be
complete, and quietly said*
"Here, Billy, take the saddle from
that dead horse and look out for it."
And then he dashed away to direct the
planting of Oswald's battery.
"Golly!" exclaimed old Billy, as he
related the incident to one of the family
on his return home, "who ebber did see
such a man as Mas r Wasliington? Who'd
ebber 'a' thought ob dat saddle but him?
I tell ye, mas'r remembers eberyt'ing

Big Field Guns and Their Effect.
If you insist on high velocity you have
to add so much additional machinery to
your gun carriage and have to sogreatly
strengthen its construction that yoa
destroy its mobility, while even if you
gain a long range you are still unable to
make use of your most efficient projec
tile at it. Moreover, since the remain
ing velocity of its shrapnel is a truer'
measure of the value of a gun than its
initial velocity, and the two are by no
means directly proportional, it does not
follow that we benefit as much as we
might expect by submitting to these
.disadvantages. Thus, the 12-pounder
has an initial velocity of over 1,700 feet
per second and a remaining velocity at
3,000 yards of 802 feet; while the
13-pounder, with an initial velocity of
only 1,500 feet, has at the same rauge a
remaining velocity greater hy six feet
per second than that of its rival.
One of our highest authorities on field
artillery has, indeed, recorded his opin
ion, that, as regards the efiLiency of
shrapnel, we gain nothing by the in
creased muzzle velocity of "the best field
gun in Europe" at all practical ranges
Moreover, it is the attempt to squeeze
out the last few extra feet that does all
the bann.-London Saturday Review.
CHILDREN MALTREATED BY CRUEL
MOTHERS AND FATHERS.
Some Horrible Instruments of Torture.
Cuei of a Startling Nature Brought to
.-? Light by the Pennsylvania Society for
tho Protection of Children.
It hardly seems possible that a man
with the figure of an athlete and the
strength of a Samson would deliberately
strike a child of six years full in the face
with all the force of his brawny fist, and,
as if to make it farther deplorable, the
poor, defenseless little creature, his own
offspring. Eut such brutes exist, and
thii case is considered a mild one in the
annals of pitiless deeds that come under
the notice of the Pennsylvania Society
for the Protection of Children from
At the society's new home Mr. Crew,
the enthusiastic secretary and prime
mover in all the good work done, in a
conversation yesterday unfolded experi
ences such as would appear to belong to
the times when torture was a recognized
mode of punishment for old and young.
Some of the cases would put to blush
even the most cruel practices of those
olden days, and yet they are occurring
daily here in Philadelphia, and the
victims one and all are children. To
the parents who regard the treasures in
their homes as the most priceless boon
that heaven ever bestowed, and whose
every thought is for the^care and com
fort of their little ones, this society pecu
How a mother's heart will bleed ff
through accident or disease a little sou
or daughter must endure the pangs of
suffering, and if punishment must be in

parents than on the little .offenders. Yet
there are mothers, and fathers, too, who
somehow seem to have been given the
children, but the love that corned with
the first weak cry has never found a
place in their hearts. To them they are
a burden, a constant source of annoy- '
ance, and only fit to ?lave and toil, and
aa their reward receive cuffs and kicks,

Another case in which a woman and
j - lother figures is one of the most
' ... tiesa instances on record. Along,

.. hard hearted indifference it has no
equal. A woman with her three chil
dren, Jiviugrih*'one of the worst sections
down town, reveled in all sorts of vice
and wickedness and regarded her little
ones as obstacles standing in her way.
Of a very excitable and ungovernable
disposition at all times, she was, when
under the influence of drink, a veritable
fury, and had frequently beaten them
with heavy clubs, bludgeons of wood
with protruding nails, and, in fact, any
thing she could lay her hands on, until
their bodies and faces were in the most
Not content with this, she turned
them out in the streets one bitter win
ter's day insufficiently clad, and too ter
ror stricken to attempt to return. Neigh
bors saw them and warned her that
unless she speedily gave them shelter
complaint would be made against her.
Owing to this threat, she took them in,
but only to vent redoubled fury on the
already half dead children. That night
ono little chap, worn out with the trials
of his lot and exhausted by lack of food
and ill treatment, fell into a sleep only
to be rudely awakened by heavy blows
because he breathed too loud. The final
act which brought her before the magis
trate was that of stabbing her little girl
because she asked for a piece of sugar.
? On being brought up for examination -
she expressed no regret for what she
had done, but said she hoped the child
would die, M it would only take fifteen
dollars to bury her, and she would be
through with "the brat."-Philadelphia
How a Hindoo Uses Clocks.
. The Hindoo places a clock in his show

therefore, of contenting himself with

dozen in one room. They are signs of
his wealth, but they do not add to his
comfort, for he is so indifferent to time
that he measures it by the number of.
