What Health Is.
The popular notioa that an athlete,
because of his athleticism, is a healthy
mau, is a delusive one. Muscular de
velopment is not an affair of the oou
utitation; it is an accident. Strong
limbs and a weak heart are not infre
quently associates. Many a "strong
man" dies prematurely of consump
tion. If health may be defined as a
capooity for holding on to life, then in
many coses the weaklings are the
If such a definition is accurate, wo
men are healthier than men; their
average length of days is greater than
man's. Bat it is doubtful if centena
rians, merely beoause they are centena
rians, are the healthiest. I knew tho
csi.e of a woman, who recently died at
tho age of 105, who was slightly par
alyzed even as a child, and who was
practically helpless-completely so for
more than seventy years. Could such
a one have ever been desoribed as
healthy? It is as hard to say what life
is as to say what in which unhealthy
folks are tenacious of life is not the
let.st of marvels.

IN THE SNOW.
Deep in snow the country road
"Winds across the snowy hill,
All the fields with drifts are whito,
And tho flakes are failing still.
O'er tho pine-tree grim and old,
Like a beggar in the cold,-;
Over ragged oaks that stand
Gaunt and gray on every hand, '
Over elm trees bare and brown,
Still tho snowflakes flutter down,
In the woods the little brooklet
Trembles as tho chill winds blow,
And the whito birch shakos and shivers
In the snow.
Pale and pure against tho sky
Faintly gleams the village^spirc,
Steadfast still through noonday's sun,
Evening mist, or morning fire}
And tho snowflakes slowly fall
In their whiteness over all,
Till tho slendor bonding stems
Of ?he grasses gleam liko gems.
And a crystal fret-work fine
Covers every tangled vine,
Safely, sweetly, rest the dreamers
In the quiet town below,
In tho silent town, safe folded
In thc snow. ..
Restlessly the cager wind
Echoes like a throbbing lute,
Till the willows in tho hollow
Quiver and are mute.
Under rifted clouds'of gray
With her troubles put away,
Now the old world liolh whito
In the patient hush of night,
Not a dream of sorrow thrills
Through tho silence of her hills.
God has touched her cloudy valleys,
Hushed her countless tore? ol woo,
And with sweet forgiveness folds her
In the snow.
-Angelina W. Wray, In Ilarpcr's Bazar.
The Undoing of the Ideal.
COR little Bob Griffin,
for perhaps the first
time in his life, was
seriously upset. Of so
sanguine and merry a
temperament was Bob
that he had hitherto
arisen smilingly after
every one of Fortune's hardest blows,
and had defied that capricious darno to
do her worst. But tho last was the
worst of all, and Lo thought .ibont it
moodily, with an expression of comi
cal despair on his face.
He was a little bustling, happy crea
ture, with many friends; a raau who
came upon one like a breath of fresh,
freo air or a glimpse'of sunlight. His
very laugh was contagion?, it seemed
to put th3 demons of Doubt and Wor
ry to flight with its soho. But, at the
present moment, Bob Griffin sat silent
and glum, with a frown gathering
about his freckled brow.
"It was to bo expected, I suppose,"
he muttered. "She's always known
mc as a sort of elder brother-a friend
to whom she could tell her small
troubles. A poor sort of friend, Bob,
roy hoy, that you couldn't eave her
from this. But I suppose that's only
absurd jealously on my part. Heigho ;
it's the way with them all, my boy.
Better steer clear of them, Bobby;
better steer clear of them."
He ruffled his fair hair up all over
his head and sighed.
"That's the worst of it," he went
on, ruefully ; "there isn't one of them
-not one-that takes me seriously,
unless it's my tailor, and he's mercen
ary, and doesn't count, lt's always
same. By Jove ! I can see her now,
half laughing and half crying, when
she told me all about it. She takes my
bands''-Bob spread them out before
him and looked at them, with his
Jisad. on jpjfl sid?, aa though -a new
glory hud been added to ihem-"and
she shakes them up and down, and she
wags that dear little curly head at me,
and she says, 'Bobby, dear, I'm going
to be married.' And then things be
gan to go lound and round. But I
managed to smile at her, and I con
gratulated her. What does she want
to get married for ? She's so unhappy
at home, she says, and that chap is
such a dear-bah ! and they aro going
to live such an idea?, life-poetry and
moonbeams and things, I suppose;
and the end of it is that the dear little
goose wants a bit of romane?, and that
dark, unhealthy-looking chap has
promised it to her, and has turned
her head. I wonder why the duece 1
ain't an ideal chap, with long dark
hair and a slow smile."
Even at the thought of it, he threw
back his head, and burst into a roar
of laughter, aud then as suddenly be
came serious again.
"And she kissed me-heaven bless
the dear baby !-kissed me out there
under the moon, and said, 'Wouldn't
I hope that 6ho might be happy, and
wouldn't I think kindly of her?'* Think
kindly of-here, Bobby, boy, you're
making an ass of yourself, you ugly
He got up, and paced about the
room, and blew bis nose violently.
"It's not a bit of good ; I can't stop
here. I shall go away, and seek tho
seclusion of nature's vale, as tho poet
says, until I get over it. Nothing like
nature's vole for giving a fillip to a
wounded heart, Bobby, boy. Let me
see-where shall I go? Nothing to
keep mr in town-nobody to miss me
-nobody to hold me back and say,
'You shall not go to nature's vale.'
No-I'll go down to Allingbury
dear, sleepv, old AILugbury-and
ruralize. That's tho thing; I'll start
to-morrow. But I wish-there, uever
Twenty-four hours later saw Mr.
Bob Griffin on his way to the old and
little known market town of Alling
bury. He bad come suddenly upon
it in some former wanderings,and had
been charmed with its Old World air
of repose and simplicity. Its one
small hotel was clean and comforta
ble, with wide fireplaces, and oak set
tles, and great four-post bedsteads
that carried one back insensibly to
the days of wigs and powder and pos
"Well, William," ho exclaimed to
the old waiter, in his usual hearty
fashion, as, with his hat thrust on tho
back of his head, he entered the low
ceilinged coffee room and glanced
round at the place with the pleased air
of ono who encounters an old friend.
"You've not retired yet, nor got mar
ried, nor taken to writing poetry, or
anything of that kind-eh?"
"No, no, sir;" said the man, hasten
ing to relieve him of the bag he car
ried. "I ain't 'ad no thoughts of re
tiring, sir, nor yet of taking a wife,
and as to poetry-"
"William," broke in Bob, suddenly,
with deep earnestness, "if you over
writo poetry I've done with you. I
know a fellow who writes poetry-or
tries to; it's all the same-an 1-well,
I thirst for his gore."
He paused for a moment, while the
man gazed at him in astonishment,
and then suddenly threw back his head
and burst into his customary roar of
"Get me something to eat, William ;
I'll have it in here, ' he said, as ho
settled down in one of the old-fash
ioned boxos near tho fire. Left alona

ooateatedly and rubbed his hands.
"You've dono well, Bobby-very
indeed; it's quite the best pos
thing you could have done, unde:
oirouinstances ; you'll stop here a
at least, and get over your litt!

William presently returned wit!
necessary refreshment, and set i

Truth to tell, that did not take Iqng to

"Oh! he's-ho has gone up to Lon

"Oh! it was so much nicer, he
thought, than having a prosaic wed

"Oh! yes, lots of it." said Bob,
drily. Ho was silent for a few min
utes, .ind then ho suddenly asked,
"Are you fond of this man. Gracie?^
She looked at him as if in indignant
remonstrance for a moment, and then
lowered her eyes and began to plait up
the border of her handkerchief.
"Of course, Bob. What makes yon
ask snch a silly question? Am I not
going to marry him?"
Bob got up, and walked again to the
window, and stood there. A slight
sound behind him made him turu
round ; her pretty head was down on
her hands on tho table, and she was
crying softly to herself.
Bob was across thc room in an in
"Xow, my dear, sweet girl," ho said,
in deep distress with his hand tightly
on her shoulder, "you really mustn't,
you know ; it won't do at all. Come,
come, and you'ro cryiug all over tho
chicken. That's better, put your head
upon my shoulder-so-and tell its
Boby all about it."
"You're a cross old thing," she
sobbed, "and I'm very unhappy-and
-and-you don't care-a bit-you
know you-don't. You all turn against
mo-you know you do."
"Now, Gracie, dear, that isn't fair.
Here, you've como down hero with a
lovely man who writes poetry, and
wears his hair long, and everything,
and you're going to marry him"
"I'm not!" sho exclaimed, stilisob?
bing, and stamping her foot angrily.
"What!" ejaculated Bob, staring at
tho back of her head, "not going to
marry him ! Why, you said that"
"I know I did-I know I did-bntl
won't," said thc wilful little beauty.
"I should rever havo thought of him
at nil it it hadn't been that you neg
lected rue, Bob, and I was so very un
happy at horne, and I didn't know
what to do, and-oh ! Bob, you mustn't

Her head sunk down on her shoulder
and her sobs were dying away.
"No, she sha'n't marry him." said
Bob, patting her head tenderly. "Of
course ehesha'n't. We couldn't think
of it. But, I tay, Gracie," he added,
"i*ou can't ran away to get married,
you know, without marrying some ane.

Bananas Are Very Bashful.
"California celery for size, domestic
for crispness and flavor," was a South
Water s'.reet commission merchant's
answer to a question ro^arding the re
lativo merits of Western and home
"All the celery grown around Chi
cago," he continued, "and northward
toward Kalamazoo has been of small
size and inferior appearance this year,
but in fiivor^it is far better than the
California celery. ' -
"CaliIornia celery brings twice or
three times the best price paid for the
domestic, rauging as high as seventy

cenis for home-grown."
"How is the supply of oranges keep
ing pace with tho demand?" wa3 asked.
"Tho failure of the Florida orange
crop has sent us abroad for the bulk
of what we use. Messina, Valencia,
Palermo and oilier varieties have
stepped in to help out tho American
maliced. Ocean freight rates are so
low that it costs little moro to bri"g
fruit from the old conni ry than to suip
it across tho continent. So, while
Europo supplies tho American de
ficiency, it also keeps down tho prico
of tho scarcer American product.
Bananas are fair and not ruling high,
$1.80 being tho average price. Pew
people have any idea ol how sensitivo
a fruit tho banana is or how great thc
risk involved in importing it. The
.bunches arc brought hero in bales of
hay to protect the fruit from chilling.
I've known of cargoes being chilled
crossing thc gulf. On the other hand,
if the fruit is kept too long it scalds.
This liability to ioss through changes
of temperature adds its proportion to
the xnirket price."-Chicago Record.

if you can, for they are mostly in
Hebrew-enter tho ono hundred and
eleven stores and places of business,
moro than many largo villages can
boast of, and notice the varieties of
occupations. Then ascend tho dark
stairways and wander through tho
labyrinths within, observing the old,
those in middle life, and tho almost
innumerable throng of children, and

at bow tho other half lives.
In your journey through this dense
ly built and crowded little city, in the
midst of the metropolis, you will find
provision for its population, from the
eradlo to the grave. No need of its
people to ever cross a street to get
what may be needed, if tho money is
in hand. Thpro is the sign of tho doc
tor on tho Esses street side, to pro
vide for the entrance, whilo on tho
Norfolk street side is the undertaker
and tho 6table where an oft-used
hearso is kept, to provide for tho exit.
Between tho two aro all the properties

around tho block provision for every
bodily want. Candy and sweetmeats,

fish, flesh and fowl and groceries of
every description, with stoves, uten

The dentist, the barber, the pho?

Clothing of all sorts, now and sec
ond hand, is displayed on tho four
sides of tho block, and on Essex street
is John Chinaman with his laundry.
Ono laundry appears to bo enough for
tho block, and John does not look
prosperous. His lotis apparently not
a happy one, judging from tho sign in
his window, which is likely an index
to tho character of thc people about
him. It reads: "clo reward for the

Peanuts lor Consumptives.
The Journal of Hygiene states that
Dr. Brewer has a new idea concerning
food for consumption. His treatment
consists of tho inhaling tho fumes of
vinegar and the eating of peanuts.
He gives his patients as many peanuts
as they can eat without injuring their
digestive orgaus. Two young ladies,
who had been tho rounds of the doc
tors and talion cod liver oil and tonics
till they were nearly dead, were put
on his treatment and recovero 1. Con
cerning these cases, Dr. Brewer says:
"I now commenced feeding (do not
laugh) peanuts. One would think
this a very indigestible diet, but they
craved them, and it has always been
my policy io find out what my patients
desired to eat, aud unless it is too un
reasonable I humor them. Both young
ladies have become quite plump and
after a year's inhalation have ceased
coughing andi pronounced them well.
The peanut was long known as au ex
cellent fat-producer, and much moro
agreeable than rancid shark oil that
oftentimes is sold for cod liver oil.
Whilo not all eau digest peanuts a
great, many even with feeblo digestion
eat them without discomfort, lt beats
the Koch lymph, and it is thc most
satisfactory treatment I havo over
tried for these diseases."

A Solid Steel (inn.
Mr. Maxim has lately produced a
5.7-iueh forty-five pounder gun that
promises to revolutionize tho art of
gun manufacture. He proposes to
maunf icture guns from one solid in
tregal forging, and thereby supersede
the present expensive and tedious
system of "building up." It is well
kuown that tue present "built-up" gun
consists of i!n inner core or tube, over
which are shrunk successively a scries
of concentric "jackets" or outer
tubes. This is done in order that the
whole mass of metal in tho 'hickness
of the gun may bo thrown into a state
of tension, and may be ready to re
ceive and resist instantaneously the
bursting strain that is set up at the
moment of tiring. Were it not for
this initial tension the bursting effect
of the charlo would all bo thrown
upon the laver of metal that was uext
the bore, which would be ruptured be
fore tho next outlying mass of metal
could assist in resisting the strain.
In the built-up gun, as a result of the
initial tension, every particle of metal
from the centre to tho circumference
is iirmly gripping the bore; and the
shock of discharge is felt and resisted
instantaneouily by the whole mas.-t of
the gun.-Public Opinion.
How to Keep W?rm.
Our bodily heat is supp'iod by food
and preserved by clothiug. In cold
weather we lose that heat by radition,
evaporation and conduction, and w<
can control or almost suspend these
cooling processes by the judicious se
lection of our clothing. Linen, il
worn next to the skin in cold weather,
simply means starvation by its well
known property of being a good con
ductor of heat, whilst flannel and
woolen . clothing comfortably ant
pleasantly preserves tho internal
warmth of the body. Most people in
stinctively know all this; but it is not
every ono that understands that flan
nel or woolen undergarments aro
needed just as much in summer as in
winter. In summer, these, materials
dry up profuse perspiration and check
according to a well-known law, pro
duces cold or chill. A complete outfit
of flannel or woolen goods IK really an
excellent winter "investment," and
will, in tho end, be found both eco
nomical and comforting. It is often
suggested that the expenses of these
garments limit their freo use, forget
ting that a well-clothed man or child
eats less than one differently clad -
thus the original cost of tho clothing
becomes lesa and less each meal.
Again, a well-clothed man will not
linger about tho house instead of
speedily following his out-door occu
pation, nor will he and his properly
clad children be so liablo to colds,
coughs, rheumatism and doctor bills.
In winter, we often see it announced
that some generous individual has dis
tributed so many tons of coal to the
poor ; but, comforting and useful as
such a gift must be to those to whom
a good fire is almost unknown, stdl we
suggest that, if the same money value
were distributad in tho form of
blankets or warm clothing, tho result
ing benefits would bo tenfold-for a
blanket lasts a long time, while a ton
of coal is only too quickly burnt away.

Story of a Vanished Mine,
The story of tho "White Cement"
mine is a curious one. Ono day a gold
seeker named White came into Horse
Head Gulch, California, fron Northern
New Mexico, and took out of his pack
a number of pieces of what looked like
hard white clay glittering with specks
of metal; Bei'oro night it was known
in tho camp that White's specimens
showed ono thousand ounces to tho
ton. Tho excitement was intense. In
tho morning a party called on the
owner of the specimens, and told him
that ho must pilot the men to his find.
He should have the pick of the claim,
and help to work it, but go ho must;
and on bis refusal, was warned that
his lifo would not bo worth shucks :.f
he "stood oSf" the camp. Then he
consented. Tho trail went down and
across the Rockies. It led along rocky
trails, up and down canons, and across
mountain crests. On tho evening of
tho third day White said the miners
were near to their journey's end.
Every one lay down that night expect
ing to arise a millionaire. In tho
morning, White was gone, and had
left no trace. One half of tho party,
after incredible suffering, got back to
life and civilization ; and yet, despite
their story, ono hundred men started
back over thoir trail two days later.
Threo years after, White reappeared
in Salt Lake City with his cement
specimens ns before, incredibly rich,
and again disappeared, and from that
time to this has never been heard of.
But men still wear out their lives in
seeking this "Lost Cement" mine.

His men determined to get even

ton) was sent up to General Smith's
headquarter?, where it in due time
appeared on the General's table. The
story pot abroad, and the next time
there was a review or dress parade of
Smith's Brigade, a soldier at one end
of tho lino called out, "Who ato the

was, "General Smith," and the whole
line broke into a loud "Bow wow!"
"bowwow!" "bow wow!"-Warren

Miller awoke a few minutes later to
find that thc cat had knocked over the |

the whole room was ablaze.
To get out it was necessary for him
to reach the fire escape in that rcom,
