Counting the Steps.
The limit of man's capacity for
speed and endurance in travel under
Kiven conditions, is a matter of rec
ord; but who has not witnessed the
almost ceaseless activity of n child,
and been led to exclaim, 'I wonder
how far that child has travelled to
day?" A gentleman recently at
tempted to answer this query in an
ingenious way. He had the floor of
his nursery covered with white mus
lin. He then strapped to the ankle
of an eighteen-raonths old child a
"marker," consisting of an inked
pad that made a plain mark' on the
cloth for every step taken. The
Reading Eagle goes on to say :
The child was allowed to roam
about and amuse itself a9 usual, and
at night the marks were counted.
There was the almost incredible
number of 6,483 marks, which allow
ing 6 inches to each step, made the
sura of the day's Journeyings 3,24:
feet, or almost three-fourths of a
The child was probably not above
the average in point of activity and
endurance, and its feat was only that
of many another little one whose
mother finds it dropping asleep in
her arms at night before the night
gown can be coaxed over its head,
while the older members of the fam
ily wonder "what makes baby so
cross and tired tonight ? "
The gentleman next experimented
with his boy of nine years, who was
out of school and in a community af
fording space and attractions for
rambling. He purchased a pedom
eter, an instrument for measuring
distances walked, on the principle of
the cyclometer used for measuring
distances travelled in a buggy or on
a bicycle. This he managed to get
into the boy's pocket, among the
marbles, nails, twine, knives, and
other bric-abrac there collected. Its
additional weight was not ndticed for
a few days, and in that time it did
The first day the instrument reg
istered nine and one-eight miles, and
the boy was at the table for every
meal. The second day's record was
ten and three-sevcLths miles; the
third, a rainy day, seven and one-
half ; the fourth nine and eight sev
The family was astonished at the
result, and thereafter, when anyone
complained of a walk of a mile or so,
nobody pooh-poohed louder than
Bob. One other noticeable result
was that Bob got his monthly pair
of shoes without the usual lecture on
the sin of wearing them out so fast.
Mrs. Laura Hart, Beaufort, S. C.
writes: "A loathsome form of blood
poison was killing me. My appetite
was lost, my bones ached, and parts
of my flesh seemed as it it would
come off my bones. A friend brought
me a bottle of B. B. B. The sores
began healing at once, and when
had taken two bottles I surprised my
friends at my rapid recovery."

Lime for Zincs and Floors.
Of all the ways I have ever seen or
ried to make zinc bright and beauti
ful, nothing can compare with lime
and a broom to scrub it, to remove
We moved into a house where the
kitchen floor was apalling in its filth.
Having on hand a stone jar of the
cream of lime, which we always keep
for cleansing purposes, nearly a quart
was scattered over the floor and on
the tarnished zinc.
With hot water and the scrub-
broom there was a quick transformai
tion. When finished with plenty of
water, the zinc was bright and the
floor sweet enough to eat from.
To prepare the lime for ready use,
take a lump of quick lime and pour
on it all the hot water it will adsorb,
till it becomes the consistency of
cream. It can be kept any length
of time by addipg water occasionally,
that the lime may be covered. It is
useful for keeping the pantry shelves
and cellar clean. Do not let it splat
ter on the woodwork. The floor can
be mopped with a little lime in clear
water. When done, the roughness
of the hands can be removed by a few
drops of vinegar. Aunt Anne.
The above suggestions are excellent
for unpainted floors and where water
can be thrown on the floor and swept
out, as is often done in country kitch
ens. A cellar floor can be mopped
and not wiped. Housekeepers need
to be careful about their hands. They
have to wear the delicate gloves that
A Gingerbread Man.
"Gingerbread is made to eat," all
the boys and girls are saying, "but
what is a gingerbread man made
for ?" Well, he will tell whether it is
going to rain or not.
"No, no, he can't !" goes the cho
rus again. "He hasn't any voice."
But things tell without voices. Let
us make a man out of some ginger
cooky dough. After it Is well rolled
out with plenty of flour, and not too
much shortening in it, cut out a man
with a good broad chest, and stout
legs and arms, so he will hang upon
the wall with a girdle about his
waist and not look like a dancing
jack. Make dents for the eyes and
mouth and put bits of dough on for
a nose and feet. Then bake him
When it is going to be a fair day
his chest will be hard, but when rain
is coming he will feel "flabby."
These days you must wear your old
hats or carry umbrellas.

Sympathy With Suffering.
Unless" there be some sympathy
with suffering, there will be nothing
done for its relief, and the ties of hu
man brotherhood will be quickly
sundered. If it Is a blessing that we
are unable to feel the full force of
another's sorrow, it is no less a bless
ing that we have the capacity of feel
ing a part of it. And this capacity
usually needs development rather
than restraint. For a few who may
greve unwarrantably for their fan
cied insensibility there are multi
tudes who are sadly deficient in synv
pathy and never grieve at all about
it. It should never be forgotten that
all social happiness, all mutual bene
facti ons and all true benevolence are
founded 0:1 the presence of sympathy.

Rubbers are not to be recommended for
constant wear, because they interfere
with proper ventilation of the feet.

To burns unsalted butter, fresh oil,
yelk of egg or cold cream should be ap
plied at once. An especial good effect
is gotten from linseed oil and lime
water in equal parts, or from bicarbon
ate of soda with the requisite amount
of water to make a paste. Over such
applications should be placed only a
very thin bandage, not a thick one,
which will generate warmth.

to wash the exposed portions of the

the alternative being the chapping of

the skin. When frequent washing can
not be avoided in the winter time, the
exposed portions should be rubbed with

An immense Territory Which Had Never
Hern Uone Over.
To the army more than to any other
single agent do we owe the transforma
tion of the '-Great American Desert"
into the "Great Empire of the West,"
and it is quite natural, therefore, that
the army should be looked to to explore
the only part of our domain which re
mains unknown and unexplored. Dur
ing the quarter of a century that has
passed since the purchase of Alaska,
the government has done nothing to as
certain what it had acquired. The
country seems a bare, snow-covered and
inhospitable Arctic province of value
only because of its fur trade. This im
pression has been proved untrue, and
we are beginning to realize that unwit
tingly we had made a very good bar
gain and got a valuable possession. The
mineral, lumber and fishjng industries
of Alaska are taking rank as the richest
in the world; and yet it is only with the
little strip of coast lying to the south
east of Mount Wt. Elias that we are as
yet acquainted. The territory is nearly
as large as all of the United States ly
ing east of the Mississippi river, and of
the resource:; and capabilities of the
territory as a whole, we know next to
