A Curium Little Crrsture nnd Borne of
111. Strang's Wr.
If you wish to examine a snail place
him on a piece of glass. He is n
animal, nnd contact with a
warm hand probably induces In him
tho feeling which would result In us
from plkcing tho hand or body on tho
top of tho kitchen range. The coolness
of the gloss wilt bo agrccablo to his
ennllshlp, and ho wilt travel peaceably
along, rapidly expanding and contracting
his broad, foot.
Ills horns are protruded In an Inquiring
manner, and If n finger Is placed in
front of him ho will probably walk on
until theso feelers coma in contact with
it. Then the tentacles nro withdrawn
nnd waved about In the aftort totco
tho obstruction more clearly, for each
feeler contains nt its end a small, imported,
but still discernible eye, which
Is capable of distinguishing between
light nnd darkness.
A snail's manner of withdrawing his
horns Is very curious, lie docs not pull
them back, bodily, into their receptacle,
but turns them insldo out, Just as
ouo turns tho flngorsof a glove ir. drawing
It off backward.
The llttlo creatuio has a senso of
smell, nnd also a fairly
ear, which lies close to the roots of his
horns. Ills breathing apparatus Is of
tho simplest description. Looking
at his right side, ono may seo that
n distinct holo occasionally appears
thcro, remains open a few moments,
and thou closes again. This is simply
n cavity in tho crcaturo's body, Into
which he allows a certain quantity of
nir to cntcr,")vhenover ho thinks of It,"
as ono might say. When air has thus
found its way into his Interior, he
keeps it thcro until Its oxygon is exhausted
by his vital processes; what remains,
laden with carbonic ncld, is allowed
to cscabe by re-opening tho little
trapdoor, and the receptacle Is filled by
another supply of puro air.
Its mouth is armed with a saw-like
tongue, which resembles along, narrow
ribbon, colled up in such a manner
that only a part of It comes into uso at
once. Distributed over tho surface of
thts ribbon aro tiny tcotb, one animal
somotimes having ns many as thirty
thousand. As ono set of teeth becomes
worn away by leaf-cutting, another
section of ribbon is uncoiled, and the
teeth which boforo wcro wrapped up at
tho back of the moutli, como forward
to tako their turn In pressing the food
against the horny upper Burfaco of tbolr
mouth, and thus cutting It in clean Incisions.
Tho snail's shell is n horny covering
which serves to protect him against his
numerous foes. Slugs are simply snails
which live a retired life, and consequently
need no covering at all. The
shell of tho snail Is built up from limo
In the plants on which It feeds, and the
creatures are ncvor founds on soil which
produces no lime. Longman's Magazine.

There Is a kindliness in a child's
heart and a deslro to mako others
happy that, amid tho jealousies and
selfishness of grownup people, comes
to us like a breath of May In the midst
of December. Somotimes, ns a matter
of course, tho impulses of the llttlo
ones need directing nnd by older fashioners
of things, but tho Intrinsic
trend of their wishes is always marked
by n tenderness of purpose. A little
west side tot 's mamma celebrated Her
birthday recently and previous to tho
ovont tho llttlo daughter, accompanied
by her father, went on n purpose of
buying some prescnta for tho mother.
Tho father was .quite at a loss
to know what to purchase for the
occasion, as there was nothing suggested
Itself to him ua being just what
would bo tho most acceptable, now-over,
ho thought It posslblo that the
child, having locn closely associated
with the mother ami being quick to
pick up passing remnrhs and remarkable
for returning them, might have
heard her mother express a wish for
something, lln asked the llttlo ono If
the had heart! her muinmn wish for anything,
when tho child, after an Instant's
thought gleefully replied: "Yes, I did,
papa. It was the other day when they
were burying Mrs. Smith, who lived
across tho way; mamma said sho wished
when hor time como alio could have n

A pleasant t!do of TurhUh girl life Is
that which may bo seen any day In
early summer at tho Sweet Wators of
Europe or some other favorite resort on
tho outskirts of Constantinople. The
family will hot out In tho morning, and,
tpreadlng their ruga In sumo Hold, spend
the day there doing nothing, and apparently
very contented with the occupation.
Tho women squat on the

stata that all Turkish girls ultimately

struck with the prematurely sortonsalr
thnt Turkish children wear. Tho elder
girls do not play and run Iu the manner
that English pooplo expect of healthy
children. They nit or stroll about
quietly and gravely, their yashmaks
loosened and forming a
frame-work, which displays to advantage
their complexion, us yet unspoiled
by paint and powdor. On the approach
of n man, thoy will hastily draw over
their yashmaks, not so close, however,
that the stranger can not admire their
faces, It he has a fancy for Turkish
beauty, which, though In girls and
