entering the class-room, followed
by a stranger; " this gentleman will

the visitor, and mounting the platform,
he drew a bowie-knife from his boot-leg
and tapped for attention on the desk.
"We will now proceed to do a sum in
simple addition. A gentleman who had
a head on him from last night met another
gentleman in the Dew Drop inn,
who put a head on him. How many
heads did that gentleman have on him?'
"Three!" "Now you're talking. We
will next proceed to subtraction.

Now, mister man, trot out your

The Busy Mother.
It ii alwajs a pity, says Lucy Stone,
when circumstances compel the mother
of growing children to undertake anything
outsido. A poor woman may be
driven by the hard condition of her lot,
by the improvidence of her husband, 01
by the hungry cries of her children, to
eurn their bread. But she is an overburdened
womtm doing double duty.
Homo-making is a business. House
keeping is a business. Bearing children
is a business. Each of these is of great
importance, both for the public and the
private welfare. In far the largest number
of families, those occupations are all
combined in one; and mother is expected
to, and does undertake all. It it
inevitable that she will bo over-burdened
in such a case. While her children are
small, her care is not relieved even at
night. When they are older they may
give her more anxiety still. Tho women
who we worn and haggard-looking from
their lot. are everywhere.
To expect or require from the home-makers,
while the children are young,
any outside care or burden, is a Bin. It
is j; very exceptional case which justifies
'such a woman in assuming other duties
than those of Jier Jioine, and, when it
exists, it is qlmost always at tho expense
- of her own .family.

When the young tigpra have left their-parents

rarely kills more than one.
Fi'.of. hns lately tested-some
iron taken from a chain
bridge built in 1829, and found that,
after fitly years of seivice, its strength
and elasticity had not altered perceptibly
from what they were reported to be'
at the time they were put into seivice.
The fact that age has little eJfect on the.
quality of iron is likewise verified by the
results of tests made by Prof. Thurston
1 of pieces of wire cable of the historic'
Fairmoimtauspension bridge t

j of service. Tho tested pieces were found,
to nave a tenacity, elasticity and ductility
fully equal to the best wire of the same
size found in the market to-day. v"
The neighing of the horse, and the
sounds made by other animals are to be
accounted for by their being pleasurable
to the ears of the particular animal's
companions. It is supposed that in
many sounds, as the crowing of a cock,
the individual that utters the music
of its own performance.
"Two ants," says Buchnor, "when '
they ore talking together, stand with
their heads opposite each other, working
their sensitive feelers in the liveliest
manner, and tapping each other's heads."
Numerous examples prove that they are
able in this way to make mutual communications,
and even on certain definite
subjects. "I have often," says the
English naturalist Jesse, "placed a small
green caterpillar in the neighborhood of
an ant's nest. It is immediately seized by
an ant, which calls in the assistance of
a friend after ineffectual efforts to drag
tho caterpillar into the nest. It can be
immediately seen that the little creatures
hold a conversation by means of
then feelers, and, this being ended, they
repair together to tho caterpillar in order
to drag it into the nest by then united
strength, luirtiier, 1 have observed tho
meeting of ants on the way to and from
their nest. They stop, touch each other
with their feelers, and appear to hold a
conversation, which I have good reason
to supposo relates to the best ground
for obtaining food." Hague writes, in a
letter to Darwin, that he one day killed
with his finger a number of ants who
came every day. from a hole in the wall
to some plants standing on the chimney-piece.
He had tried the effect of brushing
tbem away, but it was of no use,
and the consequenco of tho slaughter
was that the ants who were on the way
turned back and tried to persuade their
companions, who were not aware of the
danger, to turn back also. A short conversation
ensued between the ants,
which, however, did not result in aii
immediate return, for thode who had
just left tho nest first convinced themselves
of the truth of tho report.
The Imperial Library at St. Petersburg
c6ntains over 1,000,000 volumes.
Among the treasures of the institution
is Voltaire's library, many of the volumes
of which bear the former owner's
autograph notes. A poripatetio lecture
upon the library, its contents and associations,
is given twice a week (once on
Sunday), which usually secures a
group of listeners, and suggests
the thought that perhaps the plan
might be followed with benefit to ithe
