habit, n . ?withstanding the advice of his
friends and the warnings of the terrible
accidenta whioh occur almost dally. On
retiring one evening rcoontly, it appears
that he set the lamp too near the edge
of the bed. As he did not come down
to breakfast next morning, his mother
became anxious, and rapped on his
chamber door. Receiving no answer,
sho entered the room, when her worst
fears were realized. Duriog the night,
the lamp had tipped over upon the bed
and completely ruined a patch-work quilt
made by ber when only eleven years old.
The only article on the bed unharmed

short of last year fully 100,000 tons. Bo
