THE GIRL WHO LAUGHS.
Tie girl who laughs-God.bless her !
Thrice blesses herself the while;
No music of earth
Has nobler worth
Than that which voices a smile.
The girl who laughs-life need? her;
There is never an hour so sad
But wakes and thrills
To the rippling trills
Of the laugh of a lass who's glad.

"But does it never occur to you,"
asked the curate as ha poured two
teaspoonsful of coffee into his cup,
"does it never occur to you to ask
yourself what is the good of it all?"
"Never," said the millionaire with
"You never regret-you see, after all
money is not everything, is it?"
"That observation is frequently
made," said the millionaire, thought
fully, "and it is misleading. Money is
not everything, but it is much nearer
to being everything than anything else
is. There is quite a good deal of cant
talked about money. It is comforting

I have to winter abroad I can do it
easily, without considering the ques

poor man can do none of these things.
My ordinary way of life is much more

mine is perfect in these respects. Thc
poor man dies, and in nine cases out of
ten it serves him right"
"Isn't that rather a terrible thing
to say?" said the curate, nervously,
playing with his sp'oon.
"In nine cases out of ten poverty is
the result of stupidity. You Mame a
man for his moral defects, and I blame
him for his mental defects; one is just
as fair as the other. And both the
mental and moral defects aro about
equally capable of remedy."

"There," said the millionaire, "I
don't trouble myself. I get respect

really I don't care what they say when
I am not there. You see, I don't think
about these people very much. It would
annoy me if they showed hostility to

give one all the trouble of having to

are perfectly welcome to say what they

sometimes wonder how anybody who is

ODDITIES OF THE ARCTICS.
How the Animals Chance Color - A Do
During the summer months much of
the land becomes free from snow and
ice under the joint action of sun and
wind, and the snow that resists re
moval is darkened by a deposit of dna
ditiit particles. In this season the ani
mals wear their darker clothing, and
birds have, by way of change, a less
gaudy plumage. The background
against wh. ^h they stand would betray
their prese-ico if the white dress of
?winter were worn now; then, too. it
makes it possible for the foxes, ducks,
and other animals and birds to gratify
a natural vanity by putting on. for a
time at least, another coat.
In winter, white is again worn. The
background is now snow and ice, and
the only chance which the Arctic,
chicken now has to deceive the fox is
to roll up iike a sall, and simulate a
lump of ice. The ice-bear is equiped
successfully to creep upon the ever
watchful seal, because he looks like
tho other blocks cf white around him.
He remembers, however, his black
nose, and is said to be sharp enough to
cover it with his paw while approach
ing his dozing prey.
The seal does not stop his search for
food until he has completely satisfied
his excellent appetite; then he takes a
good nap, lying upon the very edge of
the ice, or as close as possible to his
breathing hole. The slightest sound
will awake? him, and, without waiting
to find out the source or direction, he
rolls into the water. He can stay un
der for only 35 minutes, but where he
will come up none can tell. This no
one knows betier than the bear; and if
the bear realizes that it is impossible
to steal upon the leeward side of the
seal, having his black nose covered
with his paw and his bloodshot eyes
closed, when the seal has his open and
on the watch, he looks about for a fa
vorable point of departure, dives un
der the icc, and if he rightly judges the
distance and direction, he comes up at
the very spot where the seal had ex
pected to go down. The seal's fate is
thus settled, and the bear's shrewd
ness earns its reward.
The beautiful eider-duck has often
been cited as an ideal .mother, and
touching stories are told of her pluck
ing the down from her own breast to
make the nest in which to hatch her
young. It is also said that if the hunters
take the down, she will despoil herself
for the second time, not calling upon
the selfish drake until she has literally
stripped herself. The drake is de
clared to be strict in keeping his mate
to her duties, insisting that she shall
attend to the work of hatching. If
the duck ventures upon a walk, he does
not offer to take her place while' she
goes gadding about, but perhaps know
ing she is to fond of idleness, cruelly
drives her back to her household duty.
The duck lays only five eggs, and il
she feels that her nest is large enough
and warm enough to hold more, she
boldly robs her neighbors, carrying
the eggs, one at a time, under hei
wing, until she has seven or eight.
However, when the brood is hatched,
the drake becomes the teacher to. thc
young. Not in swimming, fe?- that
comes naturally, but in diving, which
is a means of flight as well as for find
ing food. Thc little duck, coming in
to life above water, hesitates to risk il
by going under, nor will he follow the
oft-repeated example of his parents.
When it becomes necessary to resort
to force, the drake comes quietly neai
the unwilling pupil, suddenly throws a
wing over him, and dives down. The
little one is let go under the water.
even ff'somewhat startled, he is ready
to start diving on his own account.

TJnllke most hens, Mrs. Specklespot
knew how to hold her tongue, and not
a single cackle did she say to disclose
.thc hiding place of her eggs. She did
not even tell any of the other hens and
roosters, for she did not want them
"The hens are a little short in their
laying," said thc farmer's wife, as she
gathered the eggs each afternoon.
When Mrs. Specklespot had 14 fine
eggs in her new nest she decided that
was all she could possibly keep wa m
with her feathery wings, and it was
quite a stretch, indeed, to do that. But
she persevered, and her reward was, as
you saw in the beginning of this story,
14 beautiful little downy chicks-the
prettiest babies you ever saw.
When ?dio discovered that they were
pecking their way through their shells
she was too delighted for words, so
she just said "Cluck, cluk," softly.
The first t hing to be done was to find
them some food, and she knew that the .
big worms that she thought so deli
cious would choke the babies. It was
all cozy and warm in the nest, and thc
sun shone down upon the chickens so
kindly that the mother ran oft fer a
few minutes to find something to eat.
"Baby chicks are usually fed with soft
food." she said to herself as she hur
ried toward, the house. "I'll just see
what I can find. Grains of cern arc
too large for them."
Pink and Posey, the twins, were sit
ting on the doorstep, each eating a
beautiful fresh sugar cooky, which
mother had just taken from the oven,
and they were delicious; the only
trouble vas that Posy's cookie looked
bigger than Pink's.
"You ought to give me a bit to make
lt even," said Pink.
Posy didn't agree.
"You're a greedy boy," she said, not
"Your're selfish!" cried Pink, "eat
ing all that, great cookie by yourself.
Why, it's twice as big as mine!"
And just as ho said the last, word he
felt a little tug at his hand and in a
second Mrs. Specklespot was almost
flying toward the burn with a beauti
ful, sweet, soft, warm cookie in her
bill,' followed by several of her neigh
. "Cluck, cluck, darlings!" she cried as
she broke it up on the edge of the nest.
"That stupid boy was so impolite he
deserved to lose his cookie. Wasn't it
lucky he didn't follow me?"
The little chickens thought so, as
they pecked daintily at the crumbs.
Pink shook his fist at Mrs. Speckle
spot as she disappeared, and Posy, and
Posy, breaking his cookie in two, gave
Pink the Digger piece.-New York Mail
When Johnny Wont to School.
Johnny Newton's first day at school
was very hard. The first day at
Rchool is apt to bc trying when you are
a 7-year-old boy who has always been
too delicate heretofore to go to kinder
garten even. Johnny felt so lonely
and so homesick as he sat there, try
ing to catch up with the other chil
dren, who had all entered school in the
autumn instead af waiting until well
along toward spring, that he simply
couldn't help crying.
And of course, after that, a bigger
boy in the same room laughed at him
at recess, and Johnny, who was only to
attend schol half of each day for
some time, ran home to his mother,
crying harder than ever.
But Johnny's mother was firm in de
claring that he must go lo school reg
ularly, just the same. Her promises
that he would surely like going to
school later doesn't console him much,
but the big hug and kiss she gave him

forted him greatly. And four days lat
er the promises about liking school
later carno true.
For three long, long days Johnny
was the newest pupil, and as lonesome
and wretched as ever. But on the
fourth day there came a little girl who
had been too delicate and sickly to at
tend kindergarten, and she, too, was
so lonely and so homesick that she
Johnny felt so surprised and queer
to see any one cry in school, even
though he had been attending only
three days, that he quite understood
how strange and amusing he must
have seemed to thc bigger boy who
had laughed at him. But he was so
sorry for the little girl that he walked
home with her after recess, and when
it was time- to enter school in the af
ternoon he met her at the door and
went into the big, quiet building with

"Well, Johnny," asked the visitor,
"how arc you getting on at school?"
Johnny blushed and was silent, but
his' mamma answered for him.
"Johnny didn't like school very well
at first." she said, smiling, "but I
haven't heard so much about it of late.
You do like school now, don't you,
"Why, yes, mamma," answered
Johnny, slowly, surprised when he
came to think of it. "I do-I do like
school-a whole lot, mamma. And
I'm learning lots and lots of things
"I know you are, dearie," smiled his
mamma, patting his shoulder. "I
know of one very nice and useful les
son you lea.-ned the fourth day."
She didn't explain, as company was
present, that she was glad because he
had learned that to try and make some
one else comfortable and happy is the
surest way of being oneself, but you
and I know that she meant it. And
Johnny, although he doesn't yet know
how much he learned when he made
up his mind to try and comfort the
lonely, homesick little girl, knows just
how he will try to act next time he is
wretched and unhappy himself.-Chica

An exact model of the United
States on a scale of two and a half
Inches to the mile is one of the pos
sibilities of the future as an added
attraction to the national capital.
While this possibility is, strictly
speaking, as yet only in the air, it
nevertheless has some zealous advo
cates who see in it not only a great
educational function, but a feature of
attractiveness to the people of the
country not equaled by any piece of
natural scenery. '
It will be recaller- that several
years ago there was a project for an
outdoor map of the United States on
the Potomac flats, through which vis
itors could walk as through a park.
Bills were introduced in Congress for
this project by Senator Cannon, of
Utah. The idea was also zealously
advocated by Mr. Gardiner Hubbard,
president of the National Geographic
The present plan, however, contem
plates a much more perfect repro
duction than would be possible in an
outdoor map. The country would be
produced in strictly the same manner
as the city of Washington has been
in the models prepared by thc park
commission and now on exhibition in
the Congressional Library. This
scheme carried out delicately and ac
curately would make it possible to re
produce every building, road, bridge
and railroad in the United States, as
well as the physical features of the
A model of this character and on
the same scale is now being made of
Switzerland. This model will bs the
first production on a large scale of
what ls known as the new school of
model making. The new idea differs
from the old in that it eliminates the
exaggeration of certain lines which
was supposed to be necessary in or
der to convey to the eye the impres
sion a person supposedly gets by see
ing the original subject. To accom
plish this the scale in elevations had
to be made different than that of the
surface modeled, which fact has tend
ed to destroy popular confidence In
t,he accuracy of the old models.
The new modeling is really "geo
graphic sculpture," as some of its
devotees call it. It aims at absolute
accuracy and is made possible
through the perfection in mapmaking
and of dry-plate photography. There
is no attempt at exaggeration of ele
vations or any other illusion. The .
new park commission models arc ex
amples o' thc new school, only on a
considerably larger scale than that
proposed for the model of the coun
It would be necessary to house this
model in a well-lighted building, which
would have to be about SOO feet long
and half as wide. Visitors could sec
it by walking over glass paths. These
paths would be made on sliding sup
ports, capable of being pushed side
ways, so as to allow of an inspection
of the whole surface.
One of the possibilities of such a
model which would rr.a?vc it appeal to
statesmen as a practical proposition
would be that of having any section
desired removed and replica produc- (i
tions made, as we!! ?s changes made
in the model to suit changed condi
tions, which might occur at any time.
These replica sections could be made
of paper pulp or any other light sub
stances and used in school work, just
as the maps of the gc. .ogical survey
are now done, and sold at cost.

One Cow Skin. ?
An Instance of military thrift and
of a red-tape system which is not pe
culiar to Germany comes from the
Prussian war office. In 18C6 the
guards were breakfasting hurriedly.
They had, on thc previous day, fought
the battle of Soor, and had accom

after the conclusion of the Seven
Weeks' War he was requested by tho
