called, are frequently found in the Cyclo

Their simplest form consists of two thin
circular atones, the uTper of which is
pierced in the center and revolves on a
wooden or metal pin inserted in the low
er one. The grinder dropped the grain
into the central hole with one hand, while
the other caused the upper stone to re
volve by means of a i tick inserted in a
small hole near the ed;;e.
Tho luboriousncss of this operation is
well illustrated by a st ry told of Colum

and every night on wl.ich it fell to his
lot to grind i lie com with the querne be

companion enviously asserted that he

When we uow speak of a buxom per

not usually apply the term to a thin
woman, or to a young girl, or to an old
woman. Assuredly ve. should never
think of calling a man or a boy buxom.
The word, however, once really meant
pliable or flexible, and afterward obedi

The Medical Profession.
Every new treatment, every fresh
drug, every medicine that is discovered
is one-more drop from the great ocean

study it for the benefit of mankind. In
it there are good and e il, but if we ap
proach it with reverent earnestness and

ourselves that we are helping on the

ouirlives. This is reward enough, and
this reward shall surely come to the
physician who will work. The amelio

even the enthusiasts aid in the great
work by their devotion to their fads.

Meanness In tlie Chaste Dove.
Cases of meanness are not numerous
among the animals. A surprising one is
the innocent dove, which sometimes
hides under her wings food for which
she has no need simply to deprive her
companions. The sense of property is
manifested in the competition for prizes,
as in the struggle for the female or for
food, rank, territory or nests. The dog
distinguishes the property of his master
and eveirdiscriminates between objects
belonging to different members of the
same family. Current Literature.
