What Toys Are For.
Don't let us whine over broken toys or
toys pulled to pieces. "What Is the chief
end of man?" says the catechism. "To be
spanked," says one whose experience
guides his answer. But the chief end of a
toy, let me tell you, is not to be kept nor
even to be merely played with, but to be
dissected, analyzed, takeu apart, looked
into, comprehended and used for construct
ive purposes. Don t you pee how that tirl
studies the pieces? There is not a whole
toy in the lot, or if there is she has taken
small interest in it. What squeaks come
from that mouth organ! It has not five
keys in order. I hope she will not strike
that bunged drum. No, she will not, for
her best attention is given to scraps and
parts. She sings in total bliss among the
ruins of a dozen Konios.
Don't you suppose Xero, when he fiddled
over burning liome, was in a state of mind
like that? A fine fellow, wholly unfit to
be an emperor, only lit to le a loy. They
set him to keep a world in order, and he
couldn't, and by and by lie grew back
ward rather than forward and wanted to
pull society in pieces, just to see how it
was put together. I am sorry for the
kings when I look at my little queen on
the carpet. Mary E. Spencer in St. Louis
Mary Ann's Side.
A lady looks upon her correspondence as
one of the principal duties of life, a thing
that cannot possibly be neglected. But
the same lady will often reproach her serv
ants for writing and receiving letters, say
ing that she has no business to waste her
time. If we are known to write even a
postcard in the morning, woe betide us.
It is the same with reading. To be a read
er means to lw a Ixsd servant, we are told.
Yet ladies read novels and newspapers,
not much else, to improve themselves; yes,
and often neglect their duties in order to
Somehow we feel the injustice of all
this. It is not so much that we are bad
and ungrateful as that we want our situa
tions to have more of the freedom of home
and not to be reminded every hour of
every day of our inferiority. It is not the
work we mind; it is having to lie forever
under the eye of authority that makes us
fretful. Mary Ann in London Tit-Bits.
In the beginning of this century a shark
was taken at Surinam, and in it was dis
covered the ixxly of a woman excepting
the hed. Instances are recorded upou
good authority of specimens being found
in the same sea, one with a sea calf in its
stomach as big as an ox, another with a
whole horse, and anot her with two tunnies
anil a man. That a man could live there
for a considerable time seems by no means
The Water Spider's Air Hubble.
The water spider, which spends most of
its time under water, carries a bubble of
air for breathing on the under side of its
body, and when this air is exhausted it
comes to the surface for more. It is en
abled to carry the air bubble iiecnuse t he
under side of its Ixxly is covered with tiny
hairs set so close together that the surface
film of the water docs not pass t hem. al
though the air does, and thus the air is
imprisoned among the hairs. Youth's
A keen instinct for discovery is usually
born in a ins, yet the quality can be cul

the eye that finds meaning and purpose in
every object on which it rests.
The average length of life is greater in
Norway than in any other country on the
