IN A SILVER BOX.
Wealth I'naTaiUn? t. Save the Life of a
A young lady, elegantly dressed,
called at a bird store in San Francisco
recently. She was in -ireat distress on
account of the illness of a pet tint she
spoke of in the most endearing way.
She opened a sma.l solid silver case
and reposing upon a. bed of cotton was
a black beetle.
"Poor buggic has b.-en sick for over
a week. I am will ng to pay 100 if
you will cure him. Can't you do some
thing for him?"
She t jld Low she had retched the
lv. c t'e about a year ago from a friend
in South America. Sh kept it in a
Mnall b x, feeding it with crass,
leaves, small pieies of fruit, ant I a
sionnlly she would give it a lro. of
On leaving her room it was her cus
tom to shut the bug up in its box. A
month or so ago she was called out
suddenly and neglected this i recau
tion. Upon returning she called for
her pet, and was surprised and de
lighted to see it crawl from its retreit
After this she would frequently leave
it free, and it wot Id obey her call.
The cold weather of the past few davs
and his desire for riving caused the
bug to contract a cold, from which, the
clerk told the sorro ving young lady,
he cannot recover. Upon "hearing the
sad news the youn lady n'.oscd the
box and left the store with tears
streaming from her yes. Entering her
carriage, she was driven awav in the
direction of Nob Ilili.
HOW WE TASTE
Tip of the Tongue Caunot DiBtinguish
Strictly speaking, vith the tip of the
tongue one cannot ri ally taste at alL
If you put a drop of oil of bitter al
monds on that part of the mouth you
w ill find that it prod ices no effect of
any sort. You only taste it when it
begins slowly to diffuse itself and
reaches the true testing region in the
But if -'you put a little mustard or
Cayenne on the same part you will find
that it bites you immediately the ex
periment should be tried sparingly
while, if you put it lewer down in the
month, you will swallow it almost
without noticing the pungency of the
The reason is th.v the tip of the
tongue is supplied only with the
nerves of touch, not nerves of
taste proper. They belong to a to
tally different main 1 ranch and they
go to a different center in the brain,
tog.-; her with the very similar threads

must.ird or pepper.
That is why the smell and taste of
these pungent substances are so much
alike, as everybody must have noticed,
a good sniff at a mustard pot produc

as an incautious dose.
HER POINT OF VIEW.
The Old Woman Was Not Taking Any
Kisks With lie- Itasket,
A certain metropolitan belle on a
bitterly cold day last winter, chanced
to be crossingNew Yorlc in al'ourtcenth
street car with u number of home
going workmen An . .Id Irish woman,
laden with a bulky market basket,
stood upon the plat.orm loudly la
menting their slow progress: "Me
hands nil be froze nff me," was her
A Lenten opportunity to mortify
the flesh, thought the society girl to
her pretty self.
"Your hands will keep w arm if you
give me your basket to hold."
The old woman struck a meditative
attitude and gave a long, searching
glance over the others tailor-made
person. She shook her head decidedly.
"I guess not. Me pocketbook's in
side that basket."
The blushing penitent deemed it
unnecessary discipline even for Lent,
w hen a rough fellow opposite took up
her cau.-e with the protestations, "Oh,
fclie's all He-lit:"

A meeting was held at Hillier's

clerk's union. A large number were

be the impression of all present that
a clerks' union should be formed, and
accordingly a committee was ap

Amerlcnn Recklessness o: Lire.
Railways never would have been
permitted to exist in England, writes
William M. Acworth. had they been as
reckless of human life and as careless
of the inconvenience they inflicted on
individuals as American railways have
been and to a great extent still arc.
An Englishman can only stare with
astonishment when he sees for the
first time trains running through
vrowded streets of cities such as New
York and Chicago.
