The Daily Short Story
That old Bob Bobbins should have
bad as lovejy a niece as roily Whipple
Is one of those curious facts explicable
only on some bidden principle of unfit
ness of things. He bad a kind word
for nobody, not even for Polly, to
whom. It was said, he Intended to leave
Lis money whenever destU should force
blni to let go bis hold-on It. provided al
ways she did nothing: meanwhile to
make hlru change bin mind.
Polly's perfections bad early led me
captive.-1 don't think and It's a sub
ject on which I have repeatedly put
myelf through a rigid course of self
examination I don't think her pecuni
ary prospects had the least to do with
the state of my feelings, which I was
more than once on the point of declar
ing to her. but she would always stop
me by saying. "You must speak to Uu
cle Bob first."
"He's In the library now," she said
one day. "You might go in and talk
with him at once."
Go in and talk with blm! I should as
soon have thought of Interflowing a
royal Bengal tiger in his native jungle!
"Couldn't you epeak to him!?" 1 hint
"Not for the -world!" cried Polly,
turning pale at the bare idea.
"Thank heaven, he can't live al
ways!" I ejaculated, vexed beyond en
"What's that you say?" thundered
the infuriated uncle, opening the door
in time to catch my last wotrls. "Get
out of my house, you puppy, ajid while
I live see that you never enter it
The thing got wind, and to escape the
general laugh tbnt followed I changed
my abode to a distant city. There was
no use staying to be Jeered at. My
hopes were dashed.
In time I mustered courage to open a
correspondence with Polly. I didn't
spi-nk openly of love, aud of course she
didn't. But we wrote each other nil
the news. Such dear, delightful, ram
bllng letters ns I used to get from her-
no full of gossip and with such artless
Klips in orthography and syntax,
tine of them was banded me at
breakfast one morning. - I stopped to
open and read it.
"Huzza!" I exclaimed as I reached
the end. springing up, upsetting my
coffee and scalding the leg of the next
boarder. Don't blame nic. reader. Un
der similar circumstances you would
probably have done the same.
"P. R. Uncle Bob's dead," were the
concluding words of the letter.
To dispose of so nerious a matter so
briefly I might have been thought a
little unfeeling, but who could care
much for such an old curmiulgeon, and
then in view of future possibilities thus
unexpectedly opened to Polly and my
self she may have felt a delicacy lnen
larglug on the subject.
I think I should have repeated my
"Huzza!" to the extent of three times
three If the scalded bonrder hadn't
brought me to myself by calling me a
"fool." I restrained the further ex
pression of my feelings and retired for
"How 1 should have enjoyed being at
the old fellow's funeral." I was wicked
enough to say to myself, and I couldn't
help smiling at the thought of Dr. Mel-
lowtone (under whose ministrations old
Bob had often slept before) portraying
lu dulcet accents the imaginary virtues
of the dead.
Leaving Polly a decent time' to as
suage her sorrow, I set out. determined
to press the suit to which there was
now no impediment. A day by rail
brought me to her aud ray native place.
I hurried to the bouse, now doubtless
her own, where we last parted. It was
plain her grief had lost its edge, for as
I approached 1 beard the sound of mu
sic within. 1 entered without ceremo
ny and found Polly at the piano in a
dress anything but mournful, playing
an air anything hut dirgeful.
The sight of me startled her.
"Go! go! for heaven's sakel" she ex
claimed, lowering her voice to a whis
Not until I have laid bare my heart!
I replied, falling on one knee in the
most approved style.
"What's the jackanapes up to now?"
roared a voice behind me which I bad
hoped was forever bushed in death. "I
thought I told j-ou never to show your
self here again while I lived?"
"I I thought you were dead! I
'Dead! Who the mischief told you
Tolly V I answered, resolved to be
avenged for tbe trick Tolly had pjayed
"I didn't." said Tolly.
"You did!" 1 retorted. "Tou said so
in your last letter."
I didn't," she returned. "I only men
tioned the death of Uncle Bob, the col
I saw it all. Tolly's postscript had
meant only that.
She flashed upon me a look of scorn
for letting out the secret of our corre
spondence. Old Bob laughed a fiendish
laugh. I rushed bareheaded Into the
Itreet. Old Bob threw my hat after me,
and I have never been within miles of
the place since.
The Wsrk of the Liver.
From the amount of food directly ab
sorbed tbe veins of tbe stomach and
small intestines are especially rich in
products which make muscles and
nerves. From all this region the blood.
collected by a special system of veins.
is carried to the largest gland of the
animal hfwlr. fh llrer. Thianrviin nr-
forms various functions, such as se- I
cretins bile and sugar and some that .
are not well understood. The blood
from tbe liver, including this special
current, and also that which supplies
the tissues of the liver, la all returned
directly to the heart.

Gronraphlral Distribution of Hair
The geographical distribution of the
hair over the habitable world is, as re
gards the -olor. very precisely defina
ble. The xanthocomiu or light haired
laces are to bo found north of latitude
IS degrees, which cuts off England,
Belgium, the whole of northern der
ma ny and a great portion of Russia.
Between this parallel and latitude 45
degrees, including northern France.
Switzerland and part of Piedmont and
passing through Bohemia and Austria
ihere Is a sort of debatable land of
moro or less dark brown hair, and be
low this line we come gradually upon
the Melanie races. The people of Eu
rope therefore present in the color of
hair an almost perfect gradation, the
light flaxen of the colder latitudes
lie-opening imperceptibly Into the blue
black of the Mediterranean shores.

Qntrr Laad Tenures.
Some of the tenures in England nro
very curious. A farm near Broadhouse,
In Yorkshire, pays annually to the
landlord it snowball In midsummer and
a red rose at Christmas. The manor of
Foston Is held by a rental of two ar
rows and n loaf of bread. An estate in
the north of England Is held by the ex
hibition before a court every seven
years of a certain vase owned by tbe
family, another In Suffolk by an annual
rental or two wime uoves. n
