During a high wind te!w summer day
a young orioie was throwu from its

by kind iiands and kept in ther house
till the storm was over and then placed
on the roof of the piazza. A watch
was kept behind the clos:d blind.: of a
window near by to note proceedings
on the part of the pa:ent birds. They
in the Ieantime had seen the little one
borne away and had followed it to the

Trentment For Sprnins.
The prevalence of sprains and strains
owing to the indulgence in athletic
exercises of all kinds moves an au
thority on the treatment of these pain
ful accidents to say:
A little common sense trealtment Is
often all that is needed when the strain
is at ankle or wrist and without com
plications. it will swell very alarming
ly at first and gradually develop a
frightful looking bruise. but from the
first it should have complete rest and
a treatment of hot and cold douches,
the hot being used at first, when the
swelling is painful, and the cold later
on, as a sort of tonic to the relaxed
muscles. The hot must be very hot
and the cold very cold, as the tepid
water does harm rather than good.
For the first day of a strain, when
all the wrenched cartilages and mus
cles are aching. great relief is found in
a poultice of egg and salt. To make it,
beat the white of an egg till light, but
not stiff. Stir in gradually a cup and
a half of salt, or more if needed, to
make a thick, pastelike icing. spread
this on a cloth and bandage in place.
Cover all with oil silk or a thick bath
towel to protect the sheets, since the
egg leaks out continually. After this
has relieved the soreness begin with
hot water fomientations and wear a
light, firm bandage. except at night.
A Fine Distinction.
A young down town drug clerk who
had heard the story of the colored wo
man who had asked for flesh colored
court plaster and was given black by
the observant dealer stored the inci
dent away in his mental dust box and
decided to use It at the first opportu
nity. He had not long to wait, for a
few nights ago a comely colored girl
stepped into the store where he was
employed. "Ah wants some cou't plas
ter," she said.
"What color'" inquired the clerk,
with affected nonchalance.
"Flesh cullah, sah."
Trembling in his shoes and keeping
within easy reach of a heavy pestle,
the clerk handed the woman a box of
black court plaster, and he was sur
prised at the time that the situation af
forded so little humor. The woman
opened the box with a deliberation that
was ominous, but she was unruffled
when she noted the color of the con

resolved to subject every joke to rigid

It has often been remarked that
w-hile nothing is so uncertain as the du
ration of any given human life nothing
is were certain than the aggregate of
years which may be assigned to a
group of 100 persons or more at any
particular age. The expectation of life
at a given age, to use the actuarial
phrase, differs considerably, as might
be expected. in different countries, and
Englishmen may be surprised to learn
that they are not the longest living
among the white races.
At the age of 20 an Englishman in
average health may expect to live 42
years. and any life office will grant hims
a policy based on that probability. The
American's expectation is for a slightly
longer period. On the other hand, a
German lad of '20 can count upon little
more than 39 years and a half.
It would seem, therefore, tlint the
restlessness attributed to the A mericanI1
temperament does not necessarily con
uce to the shortening of life nor the
composure of the German to its pro
longation. Possibly the better feeding
and clothing of Americans in the lower
classes of the population are the princi
pal causes of their greater longevity.

The American who has reached 60
may look to complete 14 years more,
while the Britisher's expectation is on

the German's as nearly as possible 12
months less. Both at 20 and at 60 the
Frenchman's prospect is a little better
than the German's and a little worse
than the Englishnian's.-London Globe.
Economical Trnlnin;t of Gunners.
The method used In the United States
navy for the economical training of the
gunners Is very interesting. It is a
well known fact that the cost of firing
ne of the large guns used in the navy
s very great, amounting sometimes to
;1,000 or more. To save this expense
i very simple method is employed. In
the case of the large guns an ordinary
Remington rifle is secured in the breech
)f the gun and directly in the center
)f the bore. so that when it is fired its
bullet takes the same direction as that

gun Is sighted in the usual manner.
Dn account of the lesser velocity of the
small bullet the target is placed close

The method used for the (; pounder

nt, as instead of the small rifle a
wooden or dummy cartridge the same
size as the regular cartridge Is em
ployed. Through the center of this
wooden cartridge runs a rifle barrel
which is loaded with a .44 caliber car
tridge. This latter method has the ad

Wheeler's charge at the battle of
Shiloh was said by General Grant to
be one of the most splendid exhibitions
of human bravery he had ever witness
ed, and a feat which roused admira
tion among both armies was when the
Intrepid little general accomplished the
destruction of Itosecrans' provision
train after the battle of Chickamauga.
On Dec. 30, 1S63, General Wheeler
attempted and successfully carried out
one of the most daring, perilous and
important duties ever assigned a cav
alry commander. He crossed the Ten
nessee river in the face of a division of
cavalry under General George Crook,
drove back and worsted the troops that
guarded the Federal trains of 600
mules and 1,000 wagons and captured
the whole, with 1.500 prisoners.
While he was thus engaged Rose
crans' cavalry, S,000 strong, swept
down upon the Georgians. The latter
charged and repulsed the northerners,
capturing the forts at McMinnville,
Tenn., with 600 prisoners and great
stores; capturing the forts and destroy
ing the bridges near Murfreesboro, and
then, as full of fight as at the begin
ning of the engagement, they turned
and put to rout General Hooker and
the Eleventh and Twelfth corps that
came riding down at the moment to re
enforce the Yankees.-Chicago Journal
Tbe History of a Book.
Following is the story of the first edi
tion of Fitzgerald's celebrated transla
tion of "Omar Khayyam." The book
was issued anonymously and found no
buyers. Accordingly the author went
to Bernard Quaritch's shop, dropped a
heavy parcel of 200 copies of the "Ru
balyat" and said, "Quaritch, I make
you a present of these books."
The famous bookseller offered them
first at half a crown, then at a shilling
and, again descending, at sixpence, but
no buyers came. In despair, he re
duced the book to a penny and put
copies into a box outside his door, with
a ticket, "All these at one penny each."
At that price the pamphlet moved, In
a few weeks the lot was sold, and in
this way one of the finest gems of Eng
lish literature was dispersed among a
not overdiscerning public.
The legend has it that Dante Gabriel
Rossetti. Swinburne and Burton were
among those who dIscovered the "hid
den treasure in the penny box." Years
passed, and the once despised volume
rose in the muarket. and in 1898 Quar
itch bought in for ?21 a copy which 40
years before he had sold for a penny.
The word "bedlam" is a corruption
of the word "Bethlehem" and originat
ed as a synonym for chaos at the time
when the house of Bethlehem, occu
pied by a sisterhood of London, became
an insane asylum. The treatment of
the insane in the early part of the six
teenth century was not well under
stood, and, according to the theories
then prevalent, it was necessary to
frighten the patient out of his lunacy.
All sorts of awful espedients were re
sorted to. among them "surprise floors,"
which slipped from under the feet;
"surprise baths" and floggings at the
periods of most severe illness; hence
the name "bedlam," the result of in
correct spelling, possibly, came easily
to stand for awful things.

The World's Largest Hopyards.
It is not generally known, but the
largest hopyards in the world are
in California, along the Sacramento,
Russian and Feather rivers, and the
very biggest hopfield on earth is at
Pleasanton, In Alameda county, where
there are 308 acres. with more than
445,000 vines under one wire.

hand and within the short season

with the nettlelike fuzz on the stalks a

pickers. The other is the dark stain
