What to Forget
If yon would increase your hap
piness and prolong your life* says
an exchange, forget your neighbor's
faults. Fc:get all the slander you
have ever heard. Forget the temp
tations. Forget the fault finding,
and give a little thought to the
cause which provoked it. Forget the
peculiarities of your friends, and
^Only remember the good points
which make you fond of them. For
get all personal quarrels or histor
ies^yon may have.heard by accident,
and which, if repeated, would seem
a thousand times worse than they
are. Blot out as far as possible all
the disagreeables of life; .?hey will
come, but will only grow larger
when you remember them and the
constant thought of the acts of
meanness, or^ worse still, malice,
will only tend to make you more
familiar with them. Obliterate
everything disagreeable from yes
terday, start out with a clean sheet
to-d?y, and Write upon it for sweet
memory's sake only those things
w hich are lovely and lovable.
S*nso and Sensibility."
Per some days the dining room, had
been disturbed by the invasion of the
Dew boarder. She was fat, fifty and
very sentimental and her tender na
ture led her to whisper so many rap
turous confidences in ber neighbor's
ear that all tne rest of the mb e felt
uncomfortable, so uncomfortable that
one day after a harassed breakfast
thc neighbor determined to make a
struggle for liberty and general con
versation Her opportunity came that
night at dinner.
"Sweet Howers of springr murmured
the sentiment;!list, apostrophizing the 1
nodding daffodil centerpiece. "Aren't
they dear': So full bf poesy: And
don't yon think that we ought always j
to call them daffadowndillies instead ,
of daffodil??- she whispered.
"No. I don't;" answered the neigh
bor uncompromisingly and quite out
loud "Just tbir/k how awkward it
would have been for Wordsworth if
he'd had to write:
"And then my heart with pleaiftrre fill lea
And dances with the daffadownd?liea !"

Facts About Hailstones.
If it was qui for the couut?ess tril-.
lions bf dust particles tnat ?oat sep
arately, invisible In the atmosphere,
there could be no raindrops, snow
crystals or hailstones. From a per
fectly dustless atmosphere the mois
ture would descend in ceaseless ram
without drops. The dust particles
serve as, nuclei about which vapor
gathers. The snow crystal is the most
beautiful creation of the aerial mois
ture, and the hailstone is the most ex
tr .ordinary. The heart of every hail
stone is a tiny speck of dust Such a
speck, witt/ a little moisture condensed
about it. Is the germ from which may
be formed a hailstone capable of fell
ing a man or smashing a window. But
first lt must be caught up by a cur
rent of air and carried to the level of
the lofty cirrus clouds five or six or
even ten miles high. Then, continual
ly growing by fresh accessions of
moisture, lt begins its long plunge to
the earth, spinning through the cloud
and Sashing In the sun like s diamond
bolt shot from a rainbow.-Mew York

Th? Victoria falls, the. native nam?

Thunder Sounding Smoke, have right

In the whole of the earth's scenery. No

faintest Idea of the marvelous gran
deur and beauty of the scene. The
majesty and mystery of the gigantic
gorges, the foaming torrents, the Won
derful atmospheric effects-sil coro*

though nothing had ever before beizi

them. The falls by moonlight are a
truly fascinating spectacle. Tte roar

shimmering far above the trembttaf
earth, the lunar rainbow, co rails? tv

'HOW Su gar' Malis.
If we drop a lump of sugar, into ?
cap of ten we find, it takes a consider
able time to melt if allowed to remain
at the bottom of the vessel, but.If we
told It np In the spoon near the sur
face of the liquid it dissolves much
m >re rapidly. This is owing to the
sugar as it melts rendering the portion
of the tea containing it heavier. The
sweetened part, therefore, .descends,
leaving the sugar constantly in contact
with unsweetened, or only partially
sweetened tea-in fact, a continual
circulation of fluid is promoted until
the whole Is dissolved. When the
fragar is placed or permitted to lie at
the bottom of the cup it dissolves until
the layer of fluid next it is thoroughly
sweetened or saturated, when it prac
tically ceases to dissolve any further,
tbe sweetened and heavier stratum
above it acting for a considerable time
until the law of diffusion comes gradu
ally into play, like an impervious cov
ering, In keeping back the lighter, un
sweetened fluid above; hence the rea
son also why stirring, in breaking up
the saturated layer and allowing ac
cess to the unsweetened portion, is so
effectual in bringing about the uni
form sweetening of tea. Life is not in
frequently sweetened by thc sf me stir
ring up process.
Tho Family Pair.
The wriggly stillness of the study
?period was broken by a slamming door,
and a thin boy in dirty, ragged clothes
slouched across the room. Halfway to
the teacher's desk he drawled, "Pa
wants that you should let Jim go home
right now." As Miss Davis looked a
little doubtful, he added, "He kin come
back right away."
The permission ?river the two badly
soiled, half starved sons of the most
shiftless family in the district shuffled
down the stairs. Veryyshortly Jim re
turned, wearing a pleased and impor
tant smile on his pathetic little face.
"I come as soon's I could. Pa's
brother's dyin' to Poplar," he aanounc
ed cheerfully. "That's why pa wanted
"But you weren't gone long; you
didn't stay home. I can't see why you
went at all," answered the bewildered
Miss Davis. ?
"Why, pa's goin'," explained Jim.
"Yes, but what has that to do^with
you?" asked the teacher.
"Pa had to have his suspenders,"
was Jim's matter of fact reply.-Ex

fiariiesstt ?> common gardeu snails
to a toy "J.j? carriage to see if they
could pilli il along, says a writer Ju a
Lofidon magazine. Although the gun
carriage was a heavy leaden one. the
snails putted it so easily that I loaded
the body ol' the carriage with .small
shot. The snails, however, were more
than equal to the task. Auxious to
test their powers still further, 1 at
tached a toy cannon (made of lead and
brass) behind the gun carriage, but the
snails and their additional load moved
on once again with the same apparent
ease. Out of curiosity I decided to
weigh the cannon, gun carriage and
shot and to my great surprise?found
the total weight to be almost one
pound. I venture to'think this a very
good load for two snails to manage.
The Frying Pan. ip1,.'.
"People are always decrying the fry
ing, pan." said an experienced cook,
"but the thiug they refer to-cooking
meat, etc.. in a shallow pan with but
ter as fat-isn't really iryinf it; it is
. sauteing. The reai frying pan is a
deep kettle tilled with hot clear lard
or olive oil. In this the food-dough
nut, croqu. ?te or whatever it may be
Is immerse.: just tong enough to make
it crisp and brown on the outside and
feathery and light on the inside. Food
cooked in this way is entirely digesti
ble if properly made But so many
cooks make the misfake-of putting too
much shortening in the mixture to be
'ried, and the fat inside, combining
with the fat outside, prevents the for
mation of the crisp crust and makes
the food soggy."
Meanness to a Blind Man.
A man with dark* glasses over his
eyes' touched the conductor on the
shoulder as the car neared Euclid ave
nue and East Fifty-fifth street.
"Pardon nie." the man said, "but if
you're the conductor I want to ask a
favor. I'm blind, and I want you to
lead me over to the curb when the car
stops, if you'll be so good."
Not that 1 minded the little bother
of doln' that for him," remarked the
conductor when he got back on his
car, "but 'tain't right to let a blind
man go around all alone like that at
night trying to find his way around in
the dark."-Cleveland Tlain Dealer.
His Idea of Economy.
"Ifs all very well for you to preach
economy," said his wife, "but I notice
whenever I cut down expenses that
yon smoke better cigars and spend
moje money for your own pleasure
than at any other time."
"Well, confound lt. what do you sup
pose I want you to economize for, any

In factories where needles are made
the grindstones throw off great quanti
ties of minute steel particles, with
which the air becomes heavily, charg
ed, although the dust is too .fine to be
perceptible to the eye. Breathing the
dust shows no immediate effect, but
gradually sets up Irritation, usually
ending in pulmonary consumption. In
effective attempts were made to screen
the ah* by gauze or linen guards for

the magnet was suggested, and DOW
