Absent Mindedness and Mental Power.
It is worthy of notic that the
growtli of the mind is often accom
panied byan apparent loss of power
in particular respects; and this fact
is exceedingly important, especially
to all who desire to estimate the con
dition of their own mind. The men
tal phenomenon called not very
correctly absence of mind, is often
regarded by the person experiencing
it. and still more by those who ob
serve it in' him, as a proof of failing
powers, lint it often, if not general
ly, accompanies the increase of men-
tal power. Newton displayed ab-
sence of mind much more frequently
and to a much more marked degree
when his powers were at their high
est, tlian.iu his youth, and not only
did instances become much less fre
quent wheu hjvas at an advanced
age, but the opposite quality, sensi
tiveness to small annoyances, Degao
to be displayed. Eveu an apparent
impairment of the memory is mrfiie-"
cessarily indicitive of failing mental
I powers, since it is often the lesult of
increased concentration ol tne atten
tion on subjects specially calling for
the exercise ot the highest tonus ot
mental power analysis, comparison,
generalization and judgment. I have
already noted that profound thinkers
often ' refrain from exercising the
memory, simply to avoid the dis
traction of their thoughts from the
main subject of their study.' liut
this statement may be extended into-
the general remark that the most
profound students, whether of phys
ical 6cience, mathematics, history, or
in fine, of any difficult subject of res-
search, are apt to give the memory
less exercise than shallower thinkers.
Of course the memory is exerted to
a considerable degree, even in the
mere marshaling ot thought before
theories can be formed or weighed.
But the greater part of the . mental
action devoted to the formation or
discussion of theories is only, indi
rectly dependent upon the exercise of
n i c ir.ilt..
memory. jrvjnuar mtetitx juuiuiuy.
More About Girls.
Girls are often wild, wayward and
hard to govern; They give their
an k ions mothers and fond fathers
many serious hours of thought and
care. They principally delight in
having their own way. They are in
patient under home restraints and
they frequently fancy that they
know a great deal more than their
mothers do. . lhey- giggle and act
very foolish sometimes when - any
thing happens to please them. They
pout and make up faces when they
reel cross and uncomfortable, or
when any one is unfortunate enough
to incur their youthful displeasures;
and they resort to tears and find a
great deal of comfort in a good cry
when the world does not move upon
its axis exactly in conformity to their
wishes. . . ... . . i v
They are very romantic in regard
to their . expectations of the future.
They have an uncontrollable passion
tor cheap, sensational literature, and
they usually entertain about as usual
arid exaggerated ideas of life as they
fiud ' pictured and. described in the
startling uara.ives which they are in
the habit oi reacting. iney iook
forward to fiud themselves in the
same impossible situations as the im
aginary heroines, whose checkered
career they follow with such thrilling
interest, anxiety and enthusiasm.
They condescend sometimes to flatter
and flirt with the tenaer-nearted anu
confiding youths of 'their acquaint
ance who, at an early age, are so tib
fortunate as to feel that "
"The rosv boy with a cherub wiui, '

The eirls, somehow," seem to de

boys, nor appeal to feel one atom ot

tender youths suffer and endure by
reason of hopelessly loving them.

Girls are very communicative with
each other. lhey are in the habit
of talking over, between themselves,
all their joys and sorrows enjoining
upon each other the most solemn od
ligations never to tell what they heai
to anybody else. How well they
obey these mutual injunctions is ev

of conduct, if you would sow a se

Your Artless Women.
There is a" certain style of woman
who affects . the most innocent sim
plicity on question to which every
one past the first childhood can give
an answer; whose cue is naive ig
norance, whose charm is her nnen
lightenment, and yet who can use
her very .ignorance as a trenchant
weapon" enough when she is in the
humor. She has the prettiest way
possible of putting you in the wrong,
a .d contradicts you with the least
shading and the most directness of
any woman you can meet.
Sometimes she merely makes you
appear pedantic or obscure. The
tone in which she says, "Oh! yon
are too clever for poor little me to
talk to; and'I dare say you are right,
but then I am such a little goose. I
do not understand you," is quite suf
ficient to annihilate you for the eve
ning, if you chance to be one of
those unlucky ones who are sensitive
as to the impression they make. SI e,
so simple, so untutored, the child of
nature, makes it plain to you that
you have gone' on a- wrong -sd,
when' vou ' have spoken-to her as a
reasonable being of decent education,
and have assumed that she possesses
a tiiih.l and some degree of instruc
tion. She is all heart; if yon like,
she can expatiate on her dear dog, or
that darling boat race; but she cn
not let you think that she has ever
used the eves of her mind, or seen
anything deeper than the self-evi
dent superficialties of life.
If vou talk to her on auy .6ubjeet
bevond the current trivialities ot tne
day,she lifts up her ; eyebrows and
savs, "How odd: Alio uie utn pri

Sahara in the Past.
Dr. Zittel, the geologist -who ac
companies . the expedition iof Rolff,
in its researches through the Sahara,-
in the latest of his letters on the!
characteristics of that desert; estab
lishes, with great clearness, says the;
Pall Mall. , Gazette, and by more than
one distinct proof, the theory that it
is the dried-up basin of a former
shallow sea. . The fine quartz sand,
in particles never larger than the
head of a pin, which forms at once
the main feature and the danger of
its surface, is nol; produced by, any
formation in or near it' and must
have t)een carried to it by some for
eign agency. : The real surface ' of
the desert is a bare, dry, chalk plat
eau, at first examination resembling
that of the Swabiari Alps, but in: re
ality of a much more recent' origin'.
Above it riseliere and there the iso
lated peaks (Sailed by the Arabs "wit;
nesses," which are of a later' chalk
again. The tops of these, where sev
eral are visible, are invariably id
plane, showing that they! are the
fragments of an ancient surface the!
intervpning spaces of which have
been washed away. If the ' question
be asked by what, there1 "being no
ground whatever for supporting tor
rents or glacial action, the answer
can only be by the constant beating
on it of waves dissolving the softer
portions.. But, a more interesting
point to many geologists will le Dr;
Zittle's comments 011 the splinters of
flints which are produced in great
quantities around certain peaks-by
the cutting process of the alternate
slight dews and frosts which the ex
pedition has found to be , cpmroon in
the winter nights , iu , the Sahara
These fragments lie around in profu
sion, and to a careless observer might
appear not unlike, some of the ruder
flint chips of the first part of the
stone age. But Dr-. Zittel, , whjo has
made a study of thelattcr, took pains
to examine thouands of, these natur
al chipping, of ( flint, and. found but

The Bay City i'hrvnirfe says of
one of its lHustrions citizens: Mr.
Wopples r ws " born to rommaud-
there is no doubt of it. He can no
more help giving orders whenever he
sees another man at work than a wo
man pass a mirror without trying to
catch a glimpse of her back hair.
Mr.' Woppls was coming ah ng the
street the other day where some men
were hoisting sonic melted tar to the
top of a building for the roofers.
One man was pulling at the hoisting
rope and auother was holding the
bucket away from the wall by means
of a cord.. The bucket had iust
passed the wide cornice when Wop
ples came upon the scene. He com
prehended the situation at a glance
and saw that the man who was hold
ing the bucket, out from the building
by the cord must slacken it so as to
let the bucket swing oyefJt4e,ro.of.-

Wopiiles.' The man pulling on the
hoisting rope recognized tricrvo"iv.e hi'
