"Well, have I. Don't that make

Iso. 2 was entirely nonplused at
that and No. 1 correspondingly victori

upon the scene she announced as before.
Yoo are my sister."
isow JNo. 3 happened to be a yoncg
lady of a very determined disposition.
and she declared just as firmly that she
was nothing of the sort, and the "I'm

for a minnte, until No. J brought out
her knockdown argument, "Haven't
you got a Father in heaven?"
But imagine her chagrin and the
teacher's nmusenirnt when the other
sputtered forth: "ICo, I haven't, and

A MILLION MILLION.
Hon Insects Hide From Enemies.
How many have ever noticed the
skillful way in which many insects dis
guise themselves when in danger from
some larger animal or bird? Probably
yon nave all observed that the caterpil
lar "plays dead" when he is disturbed,
and that many iusucts choose for their
I homes some tree or shrub whose bark or
foliage matches themselves in color.
There is a certain variety of moth,
quite common arouud elms, which fixes
its wings so that they closely resemble
spots or lichens on tho bnrk of the tree
and can only be detected by a trained
eye. Another moth, whose principal
colors aro pink and yellow, arranges
itself en the blossom cf a primrose so
as to wholly escape notice. In the East
Indian islands I '-sere is a spider which
reposes on the upper Eide of a large leaf
in such shape that it perfectly resem
bles decayed matter.
A hunter in tropical regions tells cf
eemg a cricket pursuer! around the
trunk cf a tree by a lizard. Suddenly
the insect settled itself in a small de
pression in tho bark, spread out its
wings slightly and flattened itself eo
that the lizard actually crawled over it
and went away without ever knowing
what bad become, of it. Lewistou Jour-
Iho Chicago Chronicle says that n
teacher in one of the local schools was
instructing a class cf small children in
mineralogy the other day, endeavoring
!o make clear to their young minds
what a mineral really is. Standing be
fore them, she began in her clear voice:
"A mineral is an inorganic,- homogene
ous substance of definite, or approxi
mately definite, chemical composition,
found in nature. Do yon understand
me? Come, now, yon all have seen
minerals, and your mothers and fathers
have told yon the nanioa of them,
haven't they? Of course thev have.
Now, can any one tell me the names of
There was no response, and she con
tinued, "Have not some of yon been
out and seen minerals on exhibition?"
One little girl raised her band. "I
thought so. Mary will name three min
erals." Mary arose and, putting her
hands behind her, lisped:
Apollinaris, vichy and selers."

Professor Wagstaff, whose very came
ruggests a pleasing first cousinsbip to
Shakespeare, has lately been amusing
bimself and his audience at Gresham
oollege by speculations as to what might
have happened if the father of onr ha
man race bad given up delving and
taken to figures. Let us suppose that
Adam had set bimself to count a mil
lion million, or, in figures, 1,600,000,
000,000. We will imagine that he could
count three in a second, which, though
not exactly rapid ciphering, will be
found ample, if taken continuously
Now, if 6,000 years have elapsed since
the gracious amenities of Eden formed
the crartlo or humanity, Adam would
have been working for 189,1; 16, 000, 000
seconds and have reached a total of
567,648,000,000 figures. In other words.
his task of counting a million million
would still have been unaccomplished
by over four hundred thousand millions
All of which coes to prove what?
There are many possible conclusions.
The first is, of course, that Professor
Wagstaff is a very ingenious and by no
means melancholy mathematician, Due
that hardly needed proof. A second de
duction, which wo advance with all
humility, is that if Adam had only had
habitual recourse to harmless dissipa
tion of this arithmetical kind, instead
of betraying marital weakness and a
fondness for fruit, his descendants
would have been very much better off
morally and spiritually, though not
perhaps in material comforts. And a
third conclusion, eminently gratifying
to those who refuse to believe that there
is any serious discord between religion
and science, is that Professor Wagstaff,
no doubt a man cf distinction in scien
tific attainments, accepts without any
demur Bishop Utsher's chrouology.
According to the divine, the world
was created in 4004 IS. C, and that
added to tho J 898 years which have
elapsed since, the Christian era makes
in round numbers the 6,000 years on
which the whole calculation depends.
Somo wayward "scientists" have dog
matically affirmed that tho world has
been wagging along a good many more
centuries than Ussher supposed, al
though there is a serious difference, it
is true, in this matter between the as
tronomers and the geologists. So, after
all, perhaps if Adam had been reason
ably industrious, ho would have bad
time to accomplish his task, unless bis
brain bad given way under the strain.
Mot-t of ns have such vague ideas as to
the meaning of large -figures that it is
as well to be reminded by so happy an
illustration how many tinits go to the
making of a million. The only other
conceivable fashion in which such in
struction could bo acquired is to become
n Seuth African "boss" of mines and
diamonds, and that process, much as
we may desire it, is, fortunately or un
fortunately, not open to the majority of
ne. London Telegraph.
But when an honest man 65 vears
of age, and who has lived in our city
for 30 years and owns his own prop
ertv, sleaks. we must, civeear to his
words and have faith in what he rec
ommends. For that reason we nul-
lish for the benefit of our home peo
ple the statement of H. West, 211
North street, Saginaw, Mich., as fol
lows: "Mv back was verv lame, was
quite nervous at times and my geuer
al health was seriously impaired.
Some time ajjo I was induced to try
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids, of which I had
heard a great deal, and I procured the
remedy. 1 bad not much faith in it.
as I previously had tried a large num
ber of kidnev pills and kidney reme-
d;es without any particular benefit,
but I want to say that I got simnly
wonderful relief within two days after
commencing the use of Kid-ne-oids,
and that I am now entirely cured.
I rejrard mv case as a severe test of
the medicine, as so manv others had
failed to help me. Mv advice to kid
ney sufferers is to give Morrow's Kid-ne-oids
a thorough trial and find relief
as I did."
Mr. West had no faith at first, bu
the assurance of his friends induced
him t try once again. I he result is
given above. Let Mr. West be your
friend, and if veil suffer with bach-
ache, sleeplessness, nervousness, etc.
take his advice and use Morrow's Kid-
ne-oids and ret cured. Mr. uest is a
grateful man and will be glad to write
vou how much he was benefitted bv
the use of Morrow's Kid-ne-oids, if
you will enclose stamp for reply. Do
not confound Morrow's Kid-ne-oids
with any kind of kidney pills; they
are not pills at all. but yellow tablets
