Well, who gib it dat name? Ogle

Fore gracious 1 Yei/s de ignorunt

who wa3 killed at Gettysburg. He
was a fine lookin' young man. Dem
Hoopers-Georgy Hoopers, I mean
-was all poVful fine lookin' folks.
Yer Uncle Will was eddycated in
Massychusetts. I 'memburs well de
fust time he kern home from skule
up dar. He orung his "chum," as he
call bim, back ter Georgy ter spend
de vakations wid him. Marse Tom
Curtis was a tall, proper lookin*
young man, an' ole marster on' Miss

ter go back ter Massychusetts.
'Fore Marse Tom goes he gib
Miss Vleria a ring what he said
been in his faxnbly yeera out ob
mine; Bay it crosst de ocean on a
Mayflower. I thought it was onery
lookin', but Miss Vleria nebber
tuck dat ring off nc ?nord lill she
see Maree Tom, 'cause he put it on
wid a wish. Dey went off ter skule
agen, an' ole marster he key b mak
in' more cotton an' buyin* moro nig
gers till he was de richest man
eroun' Atlanty. De las'year Marse
Will Hooper was at skule ole mar

an' ser'us. I think mebbe Marse
Will done tuck ter drinkin' or gam
uihr, but my gal Phyllis, what waits
on de table, Bne say dat ole marster
eaid dar was gwine ter be a wah, he
was fear'd, an' dat he gwine ter

Den one mawnin' he tell ole miss

I heerd her say dat man was cowyerd
.dat wouldn't dar? ter fight fer sich
a lan'. She cry, an' some ob do-so
jers cry, too, but Marse Will so
proud ho could scarcely see. Dev

THE MORNING NAP.
A protest Against the Ancient Notion
of Ricing Early.
Tho tirao_of rising in the morn
ing has not, in iact, kept 3tep with
thc progress of other events. The
old custom of early rising and
breakfasting by candlelight during
the season of short days still pre
vails, although tho need has largely
passed away. Forty years or so ago
farm work began with the break of
tlc day, and laboring people wero
expected to be in shops and facto
ries at 5 o'clock in the morning the
year round. Tho agitation for a
shorter day first reduced tho hours
to ten and later to nino and eight.
But it Ii doubtful if the hours given
to-felecp have increased as much as
the hours of work have ceased. And
in particular the t?ne of rising is
still where it was when ten and
twelve hours of labor wcro demand
This is wrong, declares the Phila
delphia Press. There is nothing
more conducive to health, good mor
als and good temper than a nap in
the morning. It rounds out tho
night's sleep and imparts a satisfac
tion which is a considerable factor
in the day's work. Thero is nothing
like sleep to tone up tho nerves, lt
is better than tho best tonic, and
with tho nerves in good condition
tho wholo man or woman ?3 pre
pared to meet tho struggles and
competition that modern lifo brings.
Sociologists also contend that if
people would sleep more there would
be less crime. Another argument in
favor of longer hours of rest is tlie
saving that would be made in light
and fuel. Less coal would bo burned
and less gas or other illuminants
would be consumed. And this is an
argument which will appeal at the
prefent ii mo to every housekeeper
whon the necessity for economy is
being e?iiorced so sharply.
There are early closing move
ments. Why not a late rising move
ment? AU methods of work and
business have been changed during
the last two generations, and they
are still changing. A man with the
help of modern machinery accom
plishes many times more in a short
er time than his grandfather did.
Why, then, should he get up in the
morning at tho same timo his grand
father did and find his energies
used up before the noon hour ? The
nrorning nap will euro this, and the
effort to establish it can be helped
al^ng with a clear conscience.
The Atlantlo Ocean.
The area of the Atlantic is about
30,000,000 square miles, less than
half the area of the Pacific and be
tween one-sixth and one-seventh: of
the total surface of the world. It
would form a circle 6,180 miles in
diameter, which is rather more than
double the distance from Liverpool
to New ?York.
Its depth is much' better known
than that of the Pacific and aver
ages more than 2,000 fathoms, prob
ably about 14,000. feet, or about
2 2-3 miles? .Tho height of Mont
Blanc is about threa m?es.
.The cubia contents aro therefore
nearly 30,00(5,000 cunio . miles, so
that the 'Atlant?rj could ?Ho contain

gallons in it is 73,000,000,000,000.
A sphere to hold the 'Atlantic would
have to be 533%' miles in 'diameter.
Moving Mountains. j
"We find from actual experience
in maintaining tunnels, bridges and
tracks in tho mountains that the
mountains are moving," said a west
ern railroad official, 'nt costs a
railway passing through tho moun
tains a great deal of money in the
course of ten years to keep the
tracks in line, and maintenance of
tunnels is even more experisive.
Drive a stake on tho side of a moun
tain, take tho location with the
greatest care and return after a few
months. TEe stake is not in the
Bame location. Tho whole side of
the mountain has moved. This ex
periment has often been tried, and
in all cases the result proves that
the mountains are moving. The
mountains are gradually seelong the
level of the sea."-Baltimore Sun.

Mental and Physical Conditions Bred
by Neglect of the Eyes.
Even' observant person has rec
ognized the recent striking in
crease in tho number of people
wearing glasses, und, while this fact
can be considered *. sign of our ad
vancing civilization, "the question
may be asked, What will it lead to
and is it a necessity? Tho answer
must be that while our environ
ment, our professions and trades,
compels a constantly increasing de
mand upon one of tho most delicate
and complex organs of our system
it is necessary in order to preservo
the function of tho eyes m their
highest possible state that concert
ed action be taken to that end. Neg
lect of the eyes and injudicious use
of glasses are great contributing fac
tors in the general deterioration
that is taking pince in those organs.
Every oculist has seen case after
case of these various conditions
promptly relieved by the correction
of tho ocular defect. Ho has seen
cases where tho child pronounced
by the parents and teachers dull
and backward becomes tho brightest
in his class after wearing glasses
that give him normal vision without
the clfort that has ?aused a condi
tion of brain fag. He has seen
many a nervous, weakened, ill nour
ished child becomo as robust and
healthy as his playmates after the
removal of some oyo strain.
Tho mechanism of tho eye is per
haps tho most delicate system of
our entire body. For tho perfect
performance of its function every
part must work in perfect harmony.
To secure this harmony both tho
refraction and the muscular balance
of the eyes must bo perfect. It is
a fact that an absolutely emmctrop
ic or normal eye is bnt rarely found.

Got Kiss and Money.
From St. Petersburg comes a sto
ry of how distress led to boldness
and boldness to victory. A few days
ago a certain prosperous llussian
merchant was waiting for a train at
a railway station when a young man
came up and, telling him ho was in
despcrato want, asked for money.
The merchant, being more liberal,
with humor than with cash, indi
cated a pretty girl who had just
come into the station on the arm of
a general of tho Russian forces and
told the needy one that if ho would
kiss her he would give him 5 rubles.
Whereupon the young fellow knelt
before the military man and told
him of the merchant's offer. The
general made the circumstances
known to the girl, and she,.smiling
graciously, presented her cheek,
which, says the chronicle, the young
man, standing on tiptoe, gracefully,
saluted. The Russian newspaper
which' tells of the little incident
boasts proudly that in no country
but Russia could it have happened.
irish Burial Places.
The Irish aro very particular as
to where they will bo buried. It
goes without saying that they want
to be interred in consecrated
ground. But they, also wish' to be
laid witK their own in tho ancient
hallowed spot where their, ancestors
for many a generation have been
Eut to rest. Each |amily has its
urying place, and whenever a mem
ber Vlies, unless it be beyond the
seas or"?at.somo insuperable 'distance,
he is brought to be buried with his
?ires. Hence it is that funeral pro
cessions aro oftentimes seen to wend
their slow way past many a way
side churchyard to some faroff
burial ground, because it is there
that for many and many a genera
tion the forefathers of'tho deceased
have laid themselves down for their
last long sleep.-Donahoe's Maga
Pigeons Do Not Fly, by Sight.
