THE OUTSIDE DOG.
tYon may sing of your dog, your bottom dog,
Or of any dog that you pleaso:

lhiat knowingly takes his oanlo,
And wagging his tull outsido the, ring,
J(eoping always his bono in sight,
Caros not a pin ein his Houlnd old hund
For either dog in the light.
Not his Is the hono they aro fighting for,
,And why should my dog sail in*
I- Ii nothing to gain but at corain chance
To loso his own precious akin?

thIrew the sweets andI letter' on tihe floor

of Tomi's letter which had produced
such dIre results ran as follows:

At this hlossie's blue eyes opened
wide, she sat up,) loosed her' h111oldn
tile tchocolates, andt read on:
"Tile object of my admniration sat

It was here that ilossie flung the
obnoxious letter away from her and
began to weep wildly, and was so ab
sorbed in her grief that Miss Tread

at her reproachfully with tear-stained

PIIILOSOPI1Y OF CROWDS

Crowds furnish nourishing food for
philosophy. It takes a philosopher to
appreciate them to the full. Take a sup
posititious case: Suppose that you are
tightly wedged in a sharp-cornered
mass of struggling humanit-y,
a musician of the Wagnerian
school playing the anvil chorus
on your right ribs, an able-bod
led pantomimist performing the )evil's
Tattoo on your left ribs and a stren
uous anatomist taking liberties with
the small of your back. Unless you can
view life from a broad aspect, you will
revile fate. If you are a philosopher.
however, you will congratulate your
self that you are there and proceed to
square the score against your fellow
men by taking it out. of the man in
front. If youl are ingenious you will
even have a little balance left. to your
credit, provided you go about it in the
right way. In a crowd, the man in front
is fair game. Those in the very front
row alone are helpless and it is only
right that they should pay the penalty
of their sulprior position. It is not gi\
en to any class of men to have thinl;s
all their own way.
It has often been remarked that
crowds are good nattred. They are. A
crowd will break every cigar ill a man's
pocket and laugh good-naturedly while
doing it. A crowd will step merrily

To purify large quantities of water
in case a tilter is not obtainable it is
a good plan to use alum, for this will
cause all impurities to sink to the bot
tom, when the clear water at the tol)
may be poured off and will be fit for
use. One tablespoonful of alum will be
required for four gallons of water. It
must be stirred in thoroughly and then '
allowed to settle.
