Ax eastern lirm is advertising a
book which "every young man should
read who contemplates matrimony."
The price of said-, book is .50 cents.
Some one curious to know what such
a book could be, and perhaps expose
a rascally firm, enclosed the price and
ordered a book sent to him. When
it came, it turned-out to be a copv of

A rtRiors cane of honse moving
was recently witnessed in Oregon. A
man who owned a residence at Seat
tle, which cost him 15,000 to erect,
removed to Olymnia.and did not have
uflicient funds to build another bouse.
He bought a lot and concluded to re
move the building he owned at Seat
tle. Everyone laughed at him, but
he ersiftied. Rolling the bouse
down to the river, he loaded it upon
a scow and it was soon at Olympia, a
distance of about sixty miles. Then
he had it rolled upon his lot, and,
strange to say, not a timber was
strained nor even a piece of furniture
broken, although he had not re
moved the contents before starting
the house upon its unusual journey.

Dear Sir: In looking over the elec

To the Hon. Benjamin Harrison
Dear Sir: The point you make is
certainly suggestive. Do you think
It is any the less significant when
studied in relation to the fact that a

in "Some Impressions and Facts"
regarding Mr. Moody, supplies much
interesting information about a man
known to evervbody in his public
words and works, but hitherto scarce,
ly at all known in his private life and
history. Views of Mr. Moody's
home 'and the schools founded by
him at Northfield, Mass., accompany
the article; and in the "Human Doc

Mr. Moody and his co-worker, Mr.
San key. There is also a series of
portraits of Archdeacon Farrar, who
contributes a Christmas article, "The
Christ-Child in Art," embellished
with reproductions of famous paint
ings. Then there is an excellent
Christmas story, and a story which,
while not a Christmas story'in point
of time, is preeminently one in
spirit and conclusion; and, finally, a
dramatic atory of the Napoleonic era
by Conan Doyle.

what appeared to lie a long line of green
ribbon about one-half an inch thick. I
stooped to examine it, and to my aston
ishment found that it was a procession
of ants marching three or four abreast
in very close order, each one carrying a
little piece of green leaf." The effect was
a contiuuous line of green without any
break. I went back to find the begin
ning, but as it issued from the grass at
the roadside I was unable to trace it
farther inthat direction. I then follow
ed it for several rods until it entered
the grass on the other side and was lost
to sight Whether it was Palm Sunday
or St Patrick's day with the ants or

RUB THE OTHER EYE.
Good Advice of an Kngineer Regarding the
Removal of Cinders.
Nine persons out of every ten with a
cinder or any foreign substance in the
eye will instantly begin to rub the eye
with one baud while hunting for tbe
handkerchief with tho other. They may
and sometimes do remove tbe offending
cinder, bnt more frequently they rub un
til the eye becomes inflamed, bind a
handkerchief around tbe bead and go to
bed. This is all wrong. The better way
Is not to rub the eye with the cinder iu
it at all, but rub the other eye. us vig
orously as you like, according to a
writer in The Medical Summary, who
relates the following experience:
"A few years since I was riding on
the engine of a fast express. The en
gineer threw open the front window,
and I caught a cinder that gave me the
most excruciating pain. I began to rub
the eye with both hands. 'Let your eye
alone and rub the other eye' (this from
the engineer). I thought he was chaffing
me and worked the harder. 'I know you
doctors think you know it all, but if
you will let that eye alone aud rub the
other one the cinder will be out in two
minutes, persisted the engineer.
"I began to rub the other eye. Soon
I felt the cinder down near the inner
canthus and made ready to take it out.
'Let it alone and keep at the well eye, '
shouted the doctor pro tein. I did so for
a minute longer, and looking in a small
glass he gave me found the offender on
my cheek. Since then I have tried it
many times and have advised many
others and have never known it to fail
in one instance unless it was as sharp
as a piece of steel or something that cut
into tho ball and required an operation
to remove it.
