TRAINING TlfE MEMORY.
THE FACULTY FOR PRESERVING
DATES, NAMES AND EVENTS.
Uceful Practice for Whist ri ay er Con

In order t attain the highest form of
memory it is necessary to cultivate tbe
faculty of irr agination, or the power of hold
ing up to t lo mind past sensations or im
pressions as if they were again actually pres
ent. Wo can retain the impression of an
object in tho mind for some time after the
otijeet iLvlf has passed away, by allowing
the uutid to ilwell upon it, and we can after
wards readily recall it. Lay an object, say
your watch, on the table, and look at it in
tently for a few seconds; you will flud on
shutting yoir eyes that you still retain a
inoro or li-ss distinct imae of it. Even after
n consiiioral lo tim you may recall the i anise
of the watch and the exact spot where it
lay. Si if in place of one object, two or
three ni-c pU.ced on the table, after conterr
platin then a short whilo their images may
be roproduci'd in the brain and afterwards
recalled wit i great distinctness.
TO REMEMBER CARDS.
Ill this wr y one i:iay soon leurn to remem
ber all the cm Is that have lieeu jila3"ed in a
game of h st, which mere playing for a life
time may fi.il to teach him. It him begin
by throwing down four cards, one by one,
upon tho ta jIo, observing each by itself and
the ordT in which it is laid down, as well as
the whole together, till he feels that he has
learned them. Let him then take tbem up
and after a time replace them as they were
before f rot i memory, and this till he feels
that ho has thoroughly mastered them. For
a second lesson lot him take four cards and
treat them in this way. and then other four;
nuil let him proceed in this way, always in
creasing th number till bo can take in the
whole puck, and tell of each card when and
where it wiis thrown down. That mero play
ing may never teach a man this is owing to
the attention being taken up with the play
and not suliiciently directed to this operat ion.
Attention is the remedy for a weak mom
ory and tho tonic for one that requires im
provement First impressions made upon
the mind must be strong and complete to be
lasting. I'ho usual image carried to the
mind must be as complete almost as the orig
inal objeci. itself, and to obtain a perfect
image tiud.videii attention must lie given to
the subject. One thing at a timo. and that
thing thotoughly. William T. Harris in
dorses this precept, and ho adds a personal
reminiscence to illustrate his point that the
true method of cultivating and strengthening
a defecti v memory is to practice it on tho
kiud of iUius it easily forgets.
The writer, when in his ISth year, was em
barrassed by tho feebleness of his memory
for dates. He commenced learning a list of
the duti'S of accession of English kings
William the Conqueror in W6, William
Rufus in 157, etc. three or four dates the
lirst day; two new ones added tho second
day; one t ew ono added the third day; there
after less often. Constant review by and by
made the entire list familiar. It bad to be
learned a lew a year after, and once again
after some years of ncjrlect. But the memory
for dates grew steadily, and, without con
scious effort, dates and numliers soon came
to be seized with a firmer grasp than before.
This kind of memory still increases with the
writer from year to vear, and, although it is
not by an menus a phenomenal memory, it
is very serviceable, A similar cultivation of
the special memory for proper names (which
in the writer's case had tiecome very weak
and threatened to go altogether) has proved
l.XAMPLES FOR TRACTICE.
The sfx-oial kind of memory that is weak
should bt- cultivated by iUolf and not at
tached to some other form of memory. The
simile of n magnet is to tho point here. Load
it today vith iron fliiirs, and to-morrow it
will supp irt a few more. The memory, if
only strong enough to retain a single item
with effort,' will grow stronger by the effort,
and will iooii retain two items, and finally
others in vast numliers and without effort.
By this method we avoid fantastic associa
tions and correct tho weak faculty itself, in
stead of fastening its work on another
faculty. Ix-t the exercise tie a list of dates
valuable to retain for themselves. Or, if it
is names that one wishes to remember, select
a list of important persons that furnish cen
ters of historical information; such, for in
stance, as the names of the llomau emperors.
the English and French kings, the heroes of
Plutarch 3 histories, or of tvpical personali
ties, such as the characters in Shakespeare's
dramas or iu Homer's "Iliad"' items of
world historical importance. A list of 100
projier tames, learned in their orders as
kings of France and of England, and the em
perors of Home, will furnish central nuclei to
historic material, and the memorizing of
such a li ;t, or, inihsed, a list half as large.
will so discipline the memory for names as to
permanently remove all embarrassment from
this sour re. It is not tho length of the list so
much as the thoroughness with which it is
learned that develops tho memory. It is not
well to co bevotid 100 items, for tho reason
that such mechanical memory should not be
made ' ho strong. David Kay's work on
Drove Him Away.
Mark Twain, during his early days, did not
stand well among boarding house keepers.
Thedra-vling youth was too lazy to pay bis

a hard featured wiuow nam-?d Perkins.
The printers had told him that she was a
woman of guiitlo nature. They gleefully
awaited the end of tho first week. Monday

"How are you, Clemcnsi" said the fore
"Tha- 's a fact. Glad to see that yon have
entered upon the week in so truthful a way.
How is your landlady!"
"Did you pay her Saturday night?"
-"Nothing, but she looked as though she
were ct iseled out of stone."
"I should think," a tramp printer rejoined,
"that t he lookad as though she were chis
eled out. of board."
Twai l cast a quick glance at the speaker.
and, laUly reaching for bis coat, said: "My
immortal soul is too tender ta stand the

Sketch of a Boston Cat.
Our household includes an aggravated cat
It is a cat marked with idiosyncrasies, an! a
great many of them. She is familiarly known
to the fnmily as tho "Lunatic," but any one
of a dozen other names would hit her as
bard. She likes attention, does Kitty, and
will have it or know why. She takes very
peal of the door liell as a personal summons
to come to t he fore, and no housemaid proves
agile enough to intercept her course. Once
inside the reception room she is mistress of
tho situation. Suddenly emerging from her
retreat, she will utter an ear piercing
m-e-a-ow! delivered in a sharp staccato, and
dash across the room, as if going to a fire.
Returning, at short intervals sho repeats the
experiment till she makes a sensation. Sh
likes also to call around during the night
watches. When the locking up process be
gins sho dashes to concealment, a hackneyed
and thoroughly catty trick, with no claim to
originality, but if you find her you are lucky,
and if you catch her you are luckier stilL
She has letter things in mind thau a night
spent oiilsfdn, or even down cellar. She
waits until the dread small hours, when, if
you are ever to sleep, you are soundly sleep
ing, and then she comes to your room and
calls you like tbe trump of Gabriel and calls
again, and keeps culling. So does your sense
of duty, and you pull your senses together
and do some calling in return. Silence reigns,
but your ears ring with her serenade; it was
no dream, so you get up und illuminate the
house Tho portiere system favors her. She
has a long range. You hunt and coax and
call, but no kitty apears. It is her little
joke. In tho daytime you know where to find
her. Burs and bolts wouldn't keep her out of
your very best parlor. There ore warmer
nooks, mid, to your liking, cozier; but a par
lor is a parlor, and one's dignity is worth
something. So there reclines all day Mme.
Pussy, tho Lunatic, with method in her mad
ness. She is of fair complexion, in good
health, excellent spirits, and for sale at a
bargain. Boston Commonwealth.
There is light at lust ou a subject of vast
importance to all vegetable eaters. It seems
that a green vegetabln is as surely injurious
to health as green fruit. But cooking will
generally render a fruit harmless, while it
will not do so for a vegetable. A recent case
of wholesale poisoning of French soldiers
was traced to the solanine in unripe potatoes.
This esculent is xiisonous more often than is
supjiosed. If dug before maturity the tuber
is by no means safe. But far worse is it to use
a potato for food that has, after beimrdusr.
been erposwl to the light for any length of
time. They should be stored in the dark as
soon as dug. If bitter they should never be
eaten. The more discoveries are made as to
our health and to our sanitary needs the less
we seem uear to a true knowledge of the best
conditious for sustaining health and life,

Chinese Ghost Lore.
In various parts of China there is a belief
that the souls of very atrocious criminals
who have either been executed or died in
prison are sent back from hades by Yenlo,
the iud-e there, to tinrinrp-n a fiir-tlmr tarm
of imprisonment, one death not being enough
to expiate their crimes. When tbe second
term of imprisonment is adjudged to bave
expired tho district magistrate beseeches the
tutelary deity of the city to accompany him
to the prison in ordor to acquaint the ghost
with bis release. The order is supposed to
reach tho imprisoned by burnitig it, a cere

medicine, possessing, by virtue of Its peculiar

curative power superior to any other article.
A Boston lady who knew what she wanted,
and whose example Is worthy Imitation, tells
her experience below:
" In one store where I went to buy nood's
Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to induce me buy
their own instead of Hood's; he told mo thelr's
would last longer; that I might take It on ten
days' trial; that If I did not like it I need not
pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken It, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.
When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
