their own livelihoods. Xo ingenuity can
provide berths for all of them, but some
might be employed as "cnttcr out." This
is the new profession for which many of
these young men and women are adapted.
The dutiesof the cutter out are few, simple
and agreeable, lie or she has merely to
make love and to ride away. Thus, put the
case that some one's daughter, uiecs or, it
may be, favorite cousin has become en gaped
to a man who is not liked or approved of by
the family. To resist her choice is futile.
Opposition merely fans the flame of pas
sion. So yon send a note or telegrnni to
the central office of the "Society For the
Utilization of Johnnies," and they dispatch
a cutter out.
He is young, handsome, agreeable, per
haps a lord or an honorable, a baronet very
likely. His duty may bo explained in a
word he is to cut out the young lady's
affianced lover, to make her out of conceit
with that disagreeable person, and then to
retire gracefully to some outlandish part
of the glole. The scheme is peculiarly val-.
uable to parents, but any one may make
use of it We see many nice girls throw
ing themselves away, Titanias marrying
Bottoms, clever and pretty women wed
ding oats, louts, snobs or etiolated little
children of the modern spirit who rejoice
in cheap culture. Iu all these cases the
services of a fine, manly cutter out may
be secured at a comparatively moderate
outlay. There is of course the danger
that he may take Ids part too seriously, or
that the afhanced damsel may take him
too seriously, but all this is matter for
management and practical wisdom. Lou

Tlie Vnited States Are Not Singular.
There was a time in the history of these
United States when there was a pood deal
of heated discussion as to whether thev
were singular or plural. To a good many
critical minded gentlemen it seemed that
the whole question whether we are a nation
or a mere confederation of states hung on
the decision of that point, and being anient
advocates of the national theory they were
very strenuous in insisting on the singular
form. In their eyes it was a little less than
treasonable to use the collective noun with
the plural form of the verb, to say the
Lmted btates "are" instead of the unit eil
As the point was not deemed by anybody
else worth quarreling over those who based
their claim of nationality on the assertion
of singularity had it all their own way;
but the question has now been decided by
an indubitable authority and agamst the
singularists. In a case recently argued
before the supreme court of the Lmtcu
States, Justice Field referred with empha
sis and approval to the fact that the united
States in the constitution are spoken of in
the plural, citing the third section of arti
cle 3, where it is declared that treason
against the United States shall consist iu
levying war against . "them," or in adhering
to "their" enemies, etc He cites also as a
still later authority in point of time the
declaration in the thirteenth amendment.

tude, except as a punishment for crime.
shall exist in the United States, or in any
place subject to "their" jurisdiction.

Everything; Grows In Circles.
It is an inexplicable fact that all life
forms take the shape of circles. Everything
grows in that manner, and it leads one to
wonder why things don't grow square in
stead of round. Why stems and leaves
should so conform is wonderful, and yet
that physical outlines of men and inani
mate objects should conform to the same
law is still more so. It almost compels us
to think of indefinite space as a circumfer
ence after all. All streams move in a por
tion of a circumference of course, as they
wind over the earth's surface, and lakes
have a circular current that goes round and
round. But the most remarkable fact rela
tive to the waters of nature is that the At
lantic ocean is a sort of whirlpool or is pos
sessed of a circular current movement that
is so large, however, and so long in the ac
complishment of one evolution that the fact
cannot be readily observed.
This gigantic maelstrom, which circles
about from pole to pole and between the
four continents, has a central point around
which it revolves. This point is now def
initely fixed as being but a short distance
to the southwest of the Azores. That point
has always been avoided by cautious mari
ners as dangerous and peculiarly squally.
When we see even the ocean s waters con
forming to the law of circumference, it very
nearly completes its meaning. Interview
in St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Kccectrlt-ity Ilusily 1'urtloueU.
Oue'of the old residents of Mount Vernon
was Theodore Marston, who moved inta
the nlace before it wus a town and settled
on the south tier of lots next to Keadfield,
where he made himself a good farm. He
was eccentric, but a man of the strictest
honesty and remarkably generous to the
poor. When he sold a poor man a bushel
of corn, he never struck the measure, and
if asked why, he would put his hand on his
heart and say, "Something in here will tell
when it is full enough," and it was never
"full enough" till well rounded. In 1S1G,
which is known as the cold season, he kept
his granary open for those who had no cash
and would say to those who had, "You can
get it somewhere else; I keep it only for
those who can't pay." Lewis tan Journal.

The nattlegrountl of the Azores.
In 1580 the Azores came under the power
of Spain, and in the history of the next 20
years their name is frequent as the favorite
battleground of the Lnghsh and Spanish
fleets. The partiality was indeed mainly
on the side of the former and for a good
reason. These islands lay right in the track
of all vessels sailing to and from that en
chanted region known to all men as the

In clear weather the sea could be scanned
for leagues around, were raised two col

and day. . hen he saw any sails approach
ing from the west, he set a flag upon the
western column one for each saiL If they
came from the east, a similar sign was set
on the eastern column.
Hither in those days came up out of the
mysterious western seas the great argosies
laden with gold and silver and jewels, with
eiLka and spices and rare woods, wrong at
the cost of thousands of harmless lives and
cruelties unspeakable from the fair lands
which lie between the waters of the Carib
bean sea and the giant wall of the Andes.
And hither, when England, too, began to
turn her eyes to El Dorado, came the great
war galleons of Spain and Portugal to
meet these precious cargoes and convey
.them safe into Lisbon or Cadiz before those
terrible English sea wolves could get scent
ol the prize. -MacmiUan's Magazine.
Epidemics Are Periodic.
It is a singular fact that epidemics have
a sort of periodicity. After an outbreak
and extensive spread a disease generally
disappears for a term of years, for while it
remains hero and there endemic it shows
no tendency to become epidemic. Then at
length it starts afresh and sweeps perhaps
from nation to nation. louth s Compan
