Itrurhine for the High Kotea.
If nature ban endowed a singer with the
power of producing high notes they will
be sunt; npontaueously. Otherwise they
will neither 1 agreeable in quality or tone.
All singers are not alike. Their voices are
pitched iu different register. Some are
pitched liifjli, others low, and a great many
medium. If a singer, not naturally en
dowed with a high register, attempt to
sing beyond his or her capacity by forcing
the voice he or t.he is in danger of injuring
the voice. Any one possettsod of a good
voice may by study and culture produce
higher notes than thev otherwise could
hope to do, but no prosor of mufeic, no
matter how eminent, ever created a voice
where it did not previously exist.
Great singers are "born, not made. Many
singers have temporarily bt rained their
voices by trying to do too much. If the
voice is naturally high no matter what
the pitch may be the singing will he pleas
ant and agreeable to the ear. If, however,
a singer tries to do too much the effect will
be similar to a man who endeavors to walk
up two steps at a time when be is only able
to make one. It will prove ruinous. Do
not strain your voice, or you may lose it.
Signor Campanini in Ladies' Home Jour
nal. Greeting by Smelling.
The respectful greeting of Fiji is to take
and smell the band of the superior without
rubbing it. In the Gambia when the men
salute the women tbey put the woman's
hand up to their noses and smell twice at
the back of it. In the Friendly islands'
noses are joined, adding t he ceremony of
taking tbe hand of the person to whom
civilities are paid and rubbing it with a
degree of force upon the saluter'sown nose
and mouth. The Mariana islanders for
merly snielled at the hands of those to
whom t hey wished to tender homage.
Car.t. Ileechy tells of the Sandwich
islanders: "The lips are drawn inward be
tween the teeth, the nostrils are distended
and the lur.gs are widely inflated; the face
is then pushed forward, the noses brought
into contact, and the ceremony concludes
with a hearty rub." Garrick Mallery in
Popular Science Monthly.
Note and Card.
It is more usual in social notes to put the
address at the head of your note, and the
date at the conclusion. It is courteous for
a man writing to a woman, whose hus
band he does not know, to address the let
ter to the husband "for" the wife. Do not
use the form "Mrs. Smith, care Mr.
Smith." A very convenient and now
quite usual custom is to commence your
note on the fourth page, and continue to
the third, second and first. The woman
leaves a card upon you only, while her
hufcband's cards are intended one for you
and one for your husband. On returning
cards for yourself and yonr husband, of
course you will follow the ssme rule.
Very Old Slang.
A correspondent writes: "You state the
case very mildly as to the English origin of
the so called slang phrase, 'toothln,' which
perhaps isn't a slang phrase at all. The
factis.it is English from 'way back.' In
Smollett's 'Peregrine IMckle.' the hero in
forms Emilia t hat he is going abroad. This
brings tears to her eyes, but he says they
are caused by the hot tea which she is
pouring. Which leads the author to re
mark that the excuse was 'to thin' to im
pose on her lover. The phrase is also found
in Shakespeare's Henry VIII, act 5, scene
2, with the same meaning.'' New Ycrk
Id Her Skies.
The glory of Italy is not in her eye, but
in her skies. She has 3,000 beggars for

Die Iron Brigade.
A correspondent asks, What was tht
"Iron Brigade of the West?"
This was composed of three regiments of
troops from Wisconsm, and one regiment
of Indiana volunteer and was command
ed during a large part of the war by Gen.
Ilufus King, who had received from the
government a commission to form a brig
ade of Wisconsin volunteers. The brigade
received its mime from the manner at
which it held its own at the battle ol
Gainesville against an overwhelming force
of Confederate veterans. It took part in
the battle liefore Fredericksburg, was pres
ent at Gettysburg and in many other battles
of the east. St. Louis Glole-Democrat.
Physiologists theorize a good deal about
dreams, but really tell us little more about
them than does the little East London girl
who writes this quaint essay:
Dreams are those queer, short tales which
come into your head when you are asleep.
They are not true. If you have had a good
supper they are rather longer, and not
quite so true. Meat or fried fish makes
them very long.
When you have had no supper at all. you
either do not dream or else you can't re
member them. We generally dream some
dreams over and over again. Youth's Com
panion. The Beat Medicine.
Mr. Blaikie declared that dyspepsia is a
disease oi tne legs rattier than of the stom
ach, and for that he again prescribed walk
ing. "Walking," said he, "is the best medi
cine one could take. You set that heart to
work by a good, brisk walk every day,
pumping that blood in a rapid manner
through your veins, and you will have lit
tle trouble with a balky liver, stomach or
kidneys.' Kansas City Journal.
How the Raff Waa Htarted.
Monarchs have the same maladies as

Too Indulgent by Far,
"Yes," said Mr. Easyman to the Rev.
Dr. Prudent, the new minister, who was
paying his parishioner a friendly visit,
"you are unquestionably right. I do not
believe in being nverstern with children.
Now mine treat me as they would an elder
brother or playmate. No scampering up
stairs wheu they hear my latch key turn in
the door. Not much! Make your home
cheerful that's my motto."
A frowsy haired youth of some six sum
mers appeared on the scene at this Junct
ure. After eying the clergyman critically
for moment he broke out with:
"liay, pa, what's a jay"
An ominous frown settled upon the brow
of the indulgent parent as he replied, "A
jay, my son, is a rather showy bird, having
a low. erectile crest of feathers and"
"But, pa, they can fly, can't they"
"Certainly, my boy. They are noted,
t0' for.tLeir propensity to chatter, and,
for insince, to ask foolish questions."
The frown deepened as the boy went on:
"But how can they fly, pa, without any
"My son, I think I heard your ma call
ing you a few moments ago"
"Yes, pa, I'm going, only as I beard you
tell ma lest night that our new minister
was a regular jay, I just wanted to come
in here and see whether he could fly. Say,
mister," to the astonished clergyman, "you
ain't got any feathers, have youf"
There was a sudden rush on the part of
the indulgent parent, followed by the sud
den disappearance of the youthful inquisi
tor. Then came a series of discordant
howls from the hall beyond.
"My dear sir," obsered the parent upon
entering the room, "while I admit that 1 am
a kind and indulgent parent why"
At this point the front door was heard
to slam violently. The minister had dis
appeared, and now Mr. Easyman is talking
about renting a pew in another church.
New York Herald.
"Whoever would get on in business," re
marked the banker, "must advertise him
self by good deeds in this philanthropic
age. The other day a well grown darky
newsboy had stationed himself in Fifteenth
street, and was trying to sell his New York
papers. The crowd rushed by him without
stopping until he swooped down upon a
fresh banana peel that lay on the side
walk. " 'Now jes' yo' all look at me pickin' up
thes yer bannanner skin to save yo' all
from fall in' down and breakin' yo' balds,'
6houted he, swinging his dangerous trophy
aronnd his demoralized hat.
"The crowd smiled at his naive self
praise, stopped and bought his papers.
After all they had seen the same methods
used by vaster business concerns in fact,
by the very journals which the boy was
"That's a pretty good illustration till the
sequel is told," answered the cynic dryly.
"I witnessed the incident myself. I also
staid in the neighborhood to see what the
boy would do after the crowd had scat
tered." "He manifested a great deal of delight, I
suppose, at the proliisof his enterprise?"
"lie did indeed. Three minutes later be
had Imught out the stock of another news
boy, laid a second banana peel in the phice
of the first, ami was waiting for the crowd
to get thick enough again for a successful
encore." Kate Field's Washington.
New York la the City of Chnrrliea.
Although Brooklyn is known as the City
of Churches, according to the latest calcu
lations it falls short of the number of
churches in this city by exactly 110. In
this city there are 4T0 churches, while in
Brooklyn there are 3W.
The Protestant Episcopal church heads
the list of fourteen different denominations
with TS churches, while the Roman Cath
olics fall just one short of this number.
The Methodist Episcopal comes next, with
CO, and the Presbyterians, including the
Reformed and Uuited, have G.T. There are
42 Baptist churches, 4'i Jewish synagogues,
and S4 Rearmed Dutch churches. The Lu
therans have 'JO places of worship, aud the
Congregatiouali.-ts have 7. There are 4
Evangelical churches aud 3 of the Disciples

"Beggars' lice," or "ticks," as they are
called, which stick to the clothes of every
one who saunters in the woods, are thought
to be a sure cure for a short memory. A
tea made of the ticks will make facts stick
to the mind, and what is more, if adminis
tered to your sweetheart it will fix her
affections upon you. If one would lm a
good singer let him drink a tea made of
crickets, for has not the cricket a pleasant
voice, and does be not siug merrily all day
So on through the whole list. Childish
enough such fancies may seem to us, but
they are real to the Iudiau. Moreover,
such notions constitute the first crude
conceptions which ultimately ripen into
the more scientilic medicine of today.
