Story of a l'arrot.
It was nanted Jane. Whether the
seA warranted the feminine appellative
I do not-know, but by its ability to han
tile language I should think it was all
right. It came from Mexico, with the
family, and could only talk Spanish at
first, but soon learned the English lan
guage. She was larger than ordinary
-a bright green with a red tail, and
very vain was she of that ornament.
Her commal)d of language was wonder
When her cage was hung by the vin
dow she would collect a crowd of boys
by crying "Fire' fire"; then change to
"Charcoal"-preclsely liike the vender
-thou suddenly say, in a conversation
al tone, "NAow boys, run to school ; do!"
When the door bell rang, Jane would
hop to the baluster and call out to
the visitor, "Johnny is'nt home I Call
again." Or familiary remark, "Oh I
is it you ?"
She would learn streetsoags, and try :i
patient1y by the hour to get the tune I
and words. I sat in another room one
day and hieard her try to sing ".j.p in a
balloon, boys, up I"-then she got stuck, I
when she exoiaimed,pettish ly,"Shaw I"
Then she tried it again, and again, tii,i
she got the two verses right, upon
which g he barked and crowned, and
went through a whole vocabulary in
her triumph and delight.
When the daughter was old enough
to go to school, Jane would say to her i
after breakfast, "Come, Eva, get ready ! t
9 o'clock now I"
She would go to the side of her ails
tress's bed In the morning, and say,
'Get up it's late. I'm very hungry I"
She was very fond of bables, so her a
mistress made her a rag-doll. It was
very droll to hear her baby-talk, int
tating her mistress's tone and lail,uage
very aecurately. She wouli lot no
stranger touch the doll, but was deligh
ted if the family noticed it. She tusls
ted upon learning her lessons with Eva,
when the latter was old enought to stu
dy them at home. She would repeat
the sufilxes and prefixes after her glib- t
ly, and annoyed her so much that she t
would have to be shut in another room, I
when she woul I still spe:l, shir:ey.
There was a tmnall party asscmblod at
the house one evening. Jane was very
shy, and refused to say a word : but
after a momentary silence in the room,
broke forth with. "Oh I how funny !"
ending with such a jolly rollicking
laugh that we all joined heartily in.
Did you ever hear before of a more a
knowing parrot than Jane?

The other night, when a certain De
trolL club had gathered in the hail, a -
member announced the serious Illness
ofoane the ofllials. A second meinher at
once moved to the platform and raid :
"Gentlemen, no one can regret this i
sad news more than I do. it seems to a
me that the occasion calls for a few re
marks expensive of synipathy and con
dolence. I do niot wlih to OCCUPY your
valuable tIme, but I feel it a duty to
say of the ailing brother--.''
Hero a member camne up staira andc
announced thaut the persons wais dead. *
He had juLst heard the niows oni the street.
"Very wvell, then,'' coat,inued the
Sspeaker, "remiarke eulogistic of his e

fleae another diiatory mnemiber p)ut in

person referred to was not dead or even
Ill, but was ini perfect health. W~ithouit
the least change ot countenance the
speaker contInued :
"That being the case, 1 deem it my

that our dear brother still lives. Life
Is but a span, and nman comnet up like

Here tl.e person himself entered thle
hali having been detainedl beyonid his
usual t:ime by some occurrence on the
street. The speaker didln't see11ml
the least put oat, but waved his hand
around the hall1 andt said:

An old me-chant whose business ex,
lerilences and observations extend over
a period exceeding half a century, is
authority for the assertibn that "money
made by speculation is nearly invari
ably lost in the same way, and that all
great and lasting commercial successes
have been achieved by steady adher
ence to legitimate methods and six per
cent. interest." The general policy of
the New York Life Insurance Company
would seen to have been fashioned
after some'such ultra-conservative but
prosaic model, for this ancient corpora
tion claims to hold rigidly to accepted
methods and beaten patls. One happy
result of this careful policy isobserved
in its exemption from vicissitudes. The
entire accumulations were, In 1873,
twenty-four millions, an'd the surplus
less than'three and a half millions of
dollars; these figures are at the end of
seven years, the worst ever known in
the history of life insurance, respec
tively thirty-nine millions and seven
millions, and ever gineo that date the
receipts fol' interest alone have exceed
ed the amount"of death claims. There
were issued during the past year flye
thousand five hundred and twenty-four
policies, insuring something more than
seventeen millions of lollars. This
number and amount could, no doubt,
have been exceeded had the company
been willing to incur additional ex
pense. 'Tite object seems to have been
to keep the amount at risk up to the
usual mark at $127,500,000, and enable
the company to hold its own until a
better :asiurance of a general business
revival encouraged a fu a ther expansion,
for this company's specialty is safety
