"lea, a man who commits suicide in
d hotel causes a vast deal of trouble,"
said mi old hotel clerk. "If the num?
ber of the room in which the deed was
committed gets out wo always haw- to
renumber the room before wo can get
anybody to occupy it. I recall on in
. cidont of a few years ago that is inter?
esting. A well known Richmond man
had committed suieido in one of the
Indianapolis hotels. About the time
the corpse was removed some of the
electric wires in the building got crossed.
'That afternoon a traveling man was
occupying a room several doors from
the one in which the suieido had oc?
curred. Every time he would call for n
boy the register on the clerk's desk
would point to the number of the room
in which the suicide had occurred and
from which the* corpse had been re?
moved only a few hours before. A bell
boy answered the first call and came
back white ;ls a sheet, with the tm
nouncement that no one was in the
room. Ting-a ling-a ling' went tho
call bell again, and once more the regis?
ter pointed to the room in which the
suicide had occurred. A second bell boy
: was sent to the room, and he came
: back as badly scared as the first, with
tho statement that no one was in tin
" 'It is the dead man's ghost.' said a
guest who had become interested in the
"Again the bell rang, and for the
third time tho register pointed to tho
suicide's room. I ordered a third boll
boy to go up and make sure that there
waa no one in tho room. Not much;
he wouldn't go. Said I wasn't going
to steer him in among spooks. I screwed
up my own courage and started up
stairs to make an investigation myself.
My breath was beginning to come short
when I met the traveling man on his
way downstairs, fuming because lii.-i
calls had not l>een answered. It or>

Why t'.oyt Leuve the Furni.
Eanw rs have themselves often to
blame f->r the dislike their sons take to
a business in which they find only tho
rough and hard side of life. Farm
work is not so hard and disagreeable as
it used to be U'foro tho introduction of
much labor saving machinery that now
lightens it. Still, though less disagree?
able, the boys do not like to have its
roughest and worst features put on
them Nor will it make it any hotter
f ?r \ i ? father, who now shirks whatever
he di tikes, to tell his sons how much
hard r he had to work than they when
ho wjis a boy. Farm work is easier
than it used to be. and the boys should
bo the first ones on the farm to find
this i :it practically. Then fewer oi
them would bo led from tho farm by
the i i: .a.-tions of city life.
So far as possible boys ought to have
a pel nal and pecuniary interest (u
ever;. :!:ing they do. and the girls also
for that matter. Their labor legally
belongs to the parent until they become
of ago. ont lu? is indeed a strange fathe
who !. ? jis his sons or daughters at work
without pay merely to save the wages
of hired help. This working without
pecuniary interest in what one is doing
is too much liko slavery. .lust as soon
as the pressure is removed, and the
child becomes legally its own master,
all restraint is thrown aside. Every
young person should have some chance
to w. irk for himself on some corner of
the rm, and whatever he thus earns
should bo his, to be saved or spent un?
do: parental supervision
In ihis way the habit of earning
money, and the knowledge of what it
costs to procure it, as well as tho best
m ? '-f u.-ing it. may be learned. The
farm has undoubtedly greater opportu?
nities for teaclung both boys and girls
this practical knowledge of money
and its value than any other business
m tlio city can possibly enjoy. A great
p.;;;<>f tho advantage of living in the
country for bringing up a family of
children will be lost unless this oppor?
tunity is utilized as much as possible*?
NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES
Tti;- Former Offer Superior Advantage*
to the Yoiiug Writer.
Where the newspaper offers to the
yo;::ig writer an advantage over the
magazine is in its wider field and its
larger capacity. Publishing thirty
tin.es against the single issue of a maga?
zine, the newspaper naturally absorbs
more material, und a writer's chances
are correspondingly better. Then, too,
subjects which arv out of the range of
the magazine fall directly within the
?con;; of the newspaper. This is spe?
cially true 0f timely articles.
The magazines of today with then
large circulations, and the necessary
?lower process of printing, are prepared
so far in advance as to make it Impos?
sible for them to get close enough to
timely happenings to make their dis?
cussion of them fresh mid interesting.
With tho newspaper this Is, of course,
different, and it is precisely in its ability
to treat of whet is latest and freshest
wherein lies its strength, and in these
respects The Hold is necessarily broad
ensul to the writer.
But, bear in mind, this advantago ?
only o.:e of greater capacity, not of loss
requirement. Disappointment can be
no more certain than when a manu?
script is sent to a newspaper editor with
the belief that he is less critical, or thai
his constituency is less exacting than ii
tho case of the monthly magazine.?

Something About Decorations.
Everybody knows that decoration*
aro commoner abroad tiian in England,
and that it was of the English repre?
sentative at tho congress of Vienna
that Talleyrand said ho was the only
plenipotentiary who had "tho distinc?
tion of not being decorated;" but a
writer in Temple Bar has been pro?
voked by some French observations on
English love of titles to go into details
about this mattor. Accordingly, he
has ascertained that if the natives of
India bo omitted from the casiculation,
the queen only rewards by decorations
one out of every 28,000 of her subjects,
whereas in France there is one deoore
for every 075 citizens. The same pains?
taking writer puts together tho availa?
ble details of the Legion of Honor, and
holds them up to admiration or tho re?
verse as a paid body. Chevaliers hava
a "salary" of ?10 a year, an officer ?20,
a commander ?40, and a grand official
?80, "while the reward of a grand crofo
Is ?120 per annum. Tho oath is as fol?
lows: "I swear fidelity to the president
of the republic, to honor and tojmj

entirely to the welfare of the state and

It seems very probable that the day
i3 not far distaut when brine, cooled
below the freezing point of water, will
be carried under the streets in pipes, as
steam is now, supplying from central
stations a very convenient substitute
for ice in the domestic housi hold. By
freezing in our own houses water
which has Wen previously boiled, it
will then be possible for us lo avoid
contagion from diseased germs con?
tained^ in ice gathered from impure

Insuring ttio Babies.
One of the industries of New York
is the insurance of babies. The sum
paid usually is five cents u week on

of good iu so far chut it assures very
poor people against being put to ex?
tremes in the event of a death in the
family. On the other hand, the pos

Why Flowers Sleep.
That flowers sleep is evident to the
most casual observer. Tho daisy opens
at sunrise and closes at sunset, hence
its name?"day's eyo." The morning
L-lory opens with tho day, but nevet
lives to see another sunrise. Th?
"John-go-to-bed-at-noon" awakes ut ?*
o'clock in the morning, but closes its
eyes during the middle of the day;
the dandelion is in full bloom only
during strong light. This habit of
some Bowers is certainly very curious,
and furnishes one of the many in?
stances which prove the singular adap?
tability of everything in nature. The
reason is found in the method by
which this class of llowcrsis fertilized.
It is obvious that flowers fertilized by
night flying insects wcruld derive no
j advantage by being open during the
day; and, on the other hand, that
thoso which are fertilized by bees
would gain nothing by remaining
I open at night. Why may wo not sup?
pose, then, that tho closing of flowers
may have reference to the habits of in?
sects? In support of this theory W6
I observe that wind fertilized flower*
