Professions That Kill.
The latest compilations which
have been made show that the air in
cutlery factories is laden with Invisi

ried into the lungs, causes asthma
and consumption. The steel grind
ers, bending over their work, inhale
such huge quantities of metal dust
that they rarely live beyond the age
of forty. All metal trades are very
hazardous, and phthisis or tubercular
affections and respiratory diseases
are the penalties of these pursuits.

A Writer's Personality.
Of Robert Louis Stevenson a re
cent writer says: :*'With his dark
eyes looking as If they had drunk in
the sunshine in some southern land,
his uncut hair, his odd, shabby
clothes clinging to his attenuated
frame, his elaborate manners and
habit of gesticulating as he spoke, he
was often mistaken for a starving
musician, or foreign mountebank.
Continental officials doubted his
passport's statement that he was a
Briton. In France he was impris
oned, and Stevenson complained that
he could not pass a frontier or visit a
bank without suspicion."
When "Papa" Was Polite.
For some time after the "papa"
was taken into the English language,
in the seventeenth century, it was
restricted to courtly and polite
speech and was common even among
adults. Long after it had become
childish it was still accounted ften

"genteelly taught by his mamma to
say not father, but papa." "Papa"
