Of late Central park has been prowinK

you will take a i rip np to the bi r.c.
; voir at almost a ly time of the dav, you
. may see any n imber of people of all
nses, conamons and degrees of prosper
ity plodding a'Kmt the lj-mile track
which surround it.
The reservoir is the highest portion of
Manhattan Island. The view from all
sides is picturesque. On the south the
city lies etretcl ed out in a magmficant
panorama as fa r as the eve can reach. It
la a spot particularly adopted for the
purpose forwl ich it was intended the
pleasure of the people.
Some of the p destrians there rtre sprint
ers, and do their work without regard
to dignity. Others shunt around with
all the dignity of a game cock. It is not
an uncommon sight to see a woman
weighing from 200 to 300 pounds puffing
along like a slow going locomotive with
a heavy train t.ttached, her arms swing
ing at her side like the driving rods of
an engine. SI e is out for what there is
in it. She cires nothing for the ques
tioning looks of the spectators nor for
their unkind remarks. She has just so
many pounds to remove per the doctors
orders, and she is trying to do it.
So regularly do these open air fiends
make their appearance on the track that
the men employed at the gatehouse on
the south side in the capacity of watch
men, gatekeejiers and helpers can spot
one half a mile away.
"There conies Aunty So-and-so," they
comment. "What a gait she has got on
this mornint ! See that stride! She's
trying to brer k the record."
"And there is Popper So-and-so. He's
making good time too. Wonder if he'll
overtake lit r Ix-fore she reaches the turn?
Whew, but he's making the gravel fly!
Five pounds off this morning sure," and
as the reduct rs of flesh go flying past the
gatehouse tl e nod familiarly to the men
who happen to be in sight.
"Who is tl is coining?" asked a reporter
of the men at the gatehouse a few days
ago as he saw a young woman approach
ing. "Why, we call her Beauty," t ne of tli
men replied. She was a tali young wom
an, fair, and with the form of a Juno.
She was stri ling along on the other side
of the lake. As she passed the men she
nodded gooc morning and strode awnv.
her head in the air, her shoulders back,
chest thrown forward and with a 3-foot
stride. She was out for oxygen. Her
cheeks glowed with the rosy hue of per
fect health, and her eyes sparkled like
"She livt s on Fifth avenue," contin
ued one of the helpers. "Every morn
ing at 9 o'clock, if the weather is any
way pleasant, she is here walking for
dear life. But ain't she a 'lieaut?' And
site's not s1 uck up a bit. She has a nod
and a smile for all of the boys, just as
you saw lu r then. I'll wager every dol
lar I have that there isn't a man on this
road that can overtake her if she is in
the mood for sprinting. Look at that
stride of hers. She covers three feet
two, I'll bet," and taking a tape measure
frow his p;ket he measured the marks
of her feet after she had passed.
"I told j on so," he exclaimed, holding
up the tap.) so it could be seen. "Three
feet two and one-half," and he grinned
with delig'it. "Yes, I've measured it be
fore," he acknowledged, when accused
of it. "You see, I take a great interest
in the girl, because two years ago when
she first began coming here she looked
as if she could not live a month. She
was as pale as a ghost. Her chest was
sunken in. and I thought she was going
into consumption. You would never
think it to see her now, bub. Winter or
summer she seldom misses a day except
perhaps during the extreme heat of the
Bummer and rainy or wet weather. Her
father is a commission merchant down
town, anl very often he accompanies
her in h jr walks. Everybody likes to
watch her, she is so graceful and strong."
Then came a man of about 50, short
and very obese. He had a very large
head, short gray whiskers and legs that
were no larger than baseball bats,
"ilornin;," he said, with a nod of recog
nition. ''Fine air lots of it. Three
pounds off this morning or die. Lots of
people out. Goodby," and as his spindle
shanks, working at the rate of 100 times
a minut ;, carried him out ot range or
hearing he was still talking. He was a
Wall street broker. He has been trying
to reduce hia flesh for a year, but he is
as fat nc w as ever.
"But here comes the hummer."

Al She Was Angry Uecauae the Deaf Old
Man Misunderstood Her.
It was just 6 o'clock, and the car was
packed with people going home.
She carried some bundles, and in her
efforts to handle them and save them
from crushing she dropped her mitten.
She saw it g , but was powerless to stay
its descent, and it went down in succes
sive stages in a triangular space between
herself, a man who looked over her
head, and an individual who was deaf,
"There goes my mitten!"
The deaf man lei.ned over and said.
"My mitten mitten it fell down."
"Well, ye can't git it, mum. Y'U have
to wait till the cr gits to the end of the
line, so the conductor kin pull up the
' 'I'll do nothing of the kind. Besides I
ain't goin to have all these people walkin
on it for half an hour."
"Haven't ye got another one?" said the
"Course I've got Knottier one," and she
wiggled the hand i.icased in her other
The deaf man saw the movement, and
knowing that women often carry car fare
inside their hand coverings reached over
and pulled her mitten off for her.
Then she screamed.
The conductor was the only man who
could edge his way to the scene of trou
ble. "What's the matter here?"
"Lady dropped her nickel and can't
pick it up," said the deaf man.
"Didn't drop my nickel dropped my
mitten," said the lady with the packages.
"Said she had another one," pursued
the deaf man, "but she lied."
"You're an old doorpost," said the
woman with one mitten.
"Queer how folks go travelin about
town with only one'nickel," said the deaf
"They get along better'n people with
no ears," said the woman who didn't
drop her nickel.
"Was that all the money yer husband
give ye?" asked the deaf man in a tone of
sympathy. "He must tie a regla'r brute."
"If he was hei now, he'd eat you up."
"l8'pose them's collars and,cuffs she's
been doin up and is goin to deliver 'em,"
said the def.f man to the passengers.
Then the conductor said, "Fare,
please," and the woman gave up a nickel
that she had been carrying in her month.
"Thought it was in yer mitten," said
the deaf man.
"You don't know how to think," 6flid
"Wonder why she didn't carry 'em
both in her mouth?" said the deaf man.
"You ought to stuff both your own
mittens in yer mouth," said the woman.
"Ain't ye afraid ye'll swaller yer nick
el that way some lime?" asked the deaf
"If I do, I reckon it won't ininre mv
l:':irin," said the woman.
Then the conductor got down on the
floor and recovered the woman's mitten,
and she got off at the next crossing won
dering why some people didn't carry ear
The deaf man said, by way of enlight
ening the other passengers, "I guess it
was her mitten instead of her nickel that
sho dropped." Chicago News-Record.
Woman to 'Woman.
The attitude women assume toward
strange women was amusingly brought
out in a New York court a few days ago.
A female witness in a case where a
young man was accused of slashing a
young woman's dress while riding in the
elevated was asked by one of the law
yers, "Do you mean to say, madam, that
you saw all those 4ears or cuts, which
ever you please, in a lady's skirt and yet
hadn't the politeness to tell her of it?"
"I do," said the witness. "I have often
told women when their dress was out of
order in the street, but I always got
snubbed for my pains, and I made up
my mind not to do it any more. If a man
should tell a woman that her dress was
out of order, she would be very apt to
thank him, but she never thanks a wom
an." San Francisco Argonaut.
Tree, Kequlre Good Soil.
Southern soil seems to possess the nec
essary substances for the growth of all
species of trees and plants natural to
warm climates. Substances that con
tribute to the nutrition of plants will act
as food for trees, and, as we see the phys
ical properties of the trees themselves,
leaves and other matter have a direct
share in their nutrition. There are some
soils so hard and clayey that the roots of
trees cannot spread, and thus they fail
to reach the substances which they re
quire for food. Hence the tree becomes
stunted in growth and is soon dead, fall
ing to the ground to become, through its
ashes, nutrition for some other frailer
plant which can subsist in such soil
A Good I re swing For Shoes.
When meditating a trip on a rainy day,
it is a wise plan to rub the shoes with a
waterproof mixture, which will make
them soft, pliable and hardy. Avery
good recipe for this is an ounce of bees
wax, an ounce of turpentine, a quarter
of an ounce of Burgundy pitch, melted
over a slow fire with a half pint of oil.
Be cautious with the turpentine. This
mixture may be applied often and will
be found really excellent. New York
Did You Ever?
Did you ever expect a letter from a

your mail and receive nothing but an
advertising circular? Boston Common
wealth. "Shop" Expressions.
The curiosities of talking "shop" were
never better exemplified than in the case
reported by an unloving woman. In a
country trip she occupied in a short
transit the seat beside the driver. "He
told me," she said, "that he had been
'bus-ing it' this winter: had 'hack-ed it'
all last summer." New York Times.
Learning 1 ruin Englishmen.
it is true that" the English have culti
vated sprinting, hurdling and the vari
ous field events somewhat less success
fully than we, but for all distances above
the quarter mile the English records (to
use our American standard of compari
son) are the world's records. This means
that the prevailing interest abroad is less
in the close gymnasium and on the dreary
cinder track than in cross country runs

tlirough woods and fields, blow his lungs
fall of fresh air and steep his senses in
sunlight. Likewise the Englishman's

But he draws the line when it comes to
sacrificing their sounder merits for the
passing glory of sweepstakes. Thus sport
witn mm is pleasanter and less intensely
sxciting. It is fruitful in mental relaxa
tion and rest as well as in bodily health
in short, Americans lack the strength
that comes through moderation and re
pose, through wholesomeness of mind
and body. We have yet to learn that
the work of life is too serious for us to
set our hearts and stake our health on
the pastimes of idle hours; that our years
are too few to be shortened by devoting
workdays and playdays alike to the
wasting passion of achievement. John

Living With a Broken Heart.
A remarkable case of .survival for a
week with rupture of the heart is re
ported. The man, who was 52 years
old, short and plethoric, was playing
football, when he suddenly feU down in
a sort of faint, but recovered in a few
moments and continued his play. Soon
after the game was over, however, he
had another and more severe attack, ac
companied by pain in the cardiac re
gion, and a few minutes later he was in
a state of partial collapse, with shallow
breathing, almost imperceptible pulse,
and very severe pain over the heart. He
gradually improved and was able to sit
ip, but seven days later he had another
fainting fit and died.
At the autopsy the heart was found to
bo fatty, degenerated and very friable,
and in the wall of the left ventricle was
a break or rupture half an inch in diam
eter. It seemed most probable tliat the
rupture was at first very minute or par
tial, not allowing the escape of blood in
to the pericardium, and that a week later
some extra exertion caused a completion
or enlargement of the rupture, resulting
in the escape of blood and death. Lon
Untimely criticism is a barrier, shut
ting out affection from us and sion
taneity. "Don't wriggle your feet so,
my son," says the critical father to a
boy vibrant with enthusiasm. The cor
rection could have waited, and the boy,
with dampened ardor, turns away, toll
ing his next story elsewhere, while the
father some day wonders why Ihjvs are
sealed books to their elders. "Where
did you buy that dreadful cravat?" Mary
says to John in the midst of his cheerful
salutation, when he is just about to tell
her of a bit of good fortune. "Such sil
1' sentimentality!"' says John, with a
shrng of indifference, to Mary at some
new thought springing out of her heart,
dewy in freshness as a newly plucked
rose. And John and Mary each grow
to mourn the fact that the best of the
other sheds its fragrance elsewhere.
There are a hundred other barriers the
dwelling on material cares, the wanton
disregard of social amenities, the sensi
tiveness to personal peculiarities. Har
Said to lie Better Than Morphine.
Mention is made of codeine sulphate
as an extremely prompt sedative in af
fections of the respiratory tract, pos
sessing an advantage over morphine in
that it does not check the secretions, nor
does it lead to a habit, nor has it dis
agreeable after effects, and it will allevi
ate pain. The dose varies from one
eighth to one-half, and, exceptionally,
one grain, given in pill or in solution,
frequently in sirup of, wild cherry.
The officinal alkaloid is rarely used,
the sulphate being preferred for the pur
pose. If administered in water, an in
soluble residue is sometimes found,
which, on examination, proves to be the
alkaloid codeine, found in codeine sul

" Castoria is the best remedy for children of
