.Eb.e Bralns...or the Sensitive Pant.
The Sensitive Plant, which is such a
delicate house ornament with us, fairly
enamels the earth in Ceylon, growing
wild from Adatn's- Poant to Point de
Galle, multiplying~ifs; dainty, bell-like
pink blossoms, mingletTwth~ the deli
cate feathery Acacia. Growing so ex
posed and in weed-like abundance, It
is. natural to suppose tUat it would be
_ome hardened, as -t were, to rough
'Usage, but it-is not~so, as it retains.all
itnative properties In exaggerated
form if possible. Our puny little hot
house specimens are not more delicate
nor sensitive to the human touch than
is this Ceylon Mimosa. It is the most
impr ssible of all known plants. and is
appropriately named. Curious experi
ments prove this. If a person will fix
his eyes upon .a special branch and
slowly approach it, the plant is seen
gradually to wilt and shrink within it
self, as it were, before it is touched by
the observer's hand. It is endowed
with an inexplicable intelligence or in
stinct, and what appears to be a dread
as regards rude contact with hunian
beings. A few years since the author
was at Cereto, -in the island of Cuba.
where he was the guest of an English
phpsician-.who was -also a coffee
planter. While sitting with the family
on the broad piazza which formed the
front of the bungalow, a thrifty Sensi
tive Plant was recognized and mane the
subject of remark. The doctor called
his daughter of eleven years from the
house.
"Lena." said he, "go and kiss the
Mimosa."
The child did so, laughing gleefully,
and came away. The plant gave no
token of shrinking from contact with
the pretty child:
"Now," said my host, "will you touch
the plant?" -
Rising to do so. I approached it with
one hand extended. and before it had
come fairly in conract the nearest spray
and leaves wilted visibly.
"The plant knows the child." said the
doctor. "but you are a stranigcr." It
was a puzzling experience. which seem
ed to endow the Mimosa with intelli
gence.-Saturday Evening Post.

ULLY a mile and a
quarter north of
the Court House
on Franklin street,
in a grove of Flor
ida pines, lies the
camp of the United
States forces in
~~w'- ~- Tampa.
The Northerner reaching Tampa at
night now can hardly realize that he
left New York or Washington so short
a time before. The real color of this
first impression is given by the brown
faced, roughly clothed troops, who
tramp up and down, and gossip in the
doorways-men who show in their
faces the grit and daring that have
led to victory since C.esar's time, and
in their bodies the endurance of
Indians and the strength of a 'Var
sity rush-line. At first the careless
ness of their attire creates an unfa
vorable impression. Half of them
parade the streets in their shirts.

covered with the faizzy beginnings of
campaign beards.

Most of the men, when at leisure, go
into town, the others lounge in their
tents, reading and talking. A reason

play is seen among them. Among the
men nothing but words qf praise are
to be heard for their officers, and
among the officers nothing but good

STORY-TELLING ABoUND THlE CAMP-FIR.E.
When a regiment is going into camp
the busiest and most harassed person
in it is the quartermaster. He it is
who has charge of all camp equipage
and who is responsible for the trans
portation of it. Also he must stand
eady to supply any deficiency, from
feed for horses or mules to a coat for
some private who is suddenly minus
his; and he and the commissary ser
ge ant, his right hand man, think not
of themselves until the regiment is in
stalled under cover. Each offcer car
ries his own camp outfit-tent, blan
Lets and mers chest-aud sees to it
before he leaves garrison. There his
responsibility practically ceases and
falls upon the shoulder of his' "stryker"
-not a socialist, but a servant pro
vided an oflicer by army regulations.
The stryker is a sort of general facto
tumn, and is usually a man from the
officers own company or troop. .He

them, too; and when the regiment

In the mneantimae, while officers'
tents are going up, those for the comn

in sets of two lines on what are called
the "company streets," and day and

Whon neuralgia is accompanied by a dull,
heavy pain near the heart, frequently be
coming intense, it generally terminates
fatally. Mrs. Nancy Flynn, who lives near
Goshen, Indiana, survived such an attack
and her advice is worth heeding.
"In the fall of '92," she said, "I began
to have trouble with my heart. There was
a sharp pain in my breast which became
rapidly worse. The doctor was puzzled
and put me under the influence of opiates.
These sharp attacks followe~d one another
at intervals and I became weak and had a
haggard look. I was constantly in pain,
seldom Slept and had no appetite.
"At the end of two years I was confined
to my couch most of the time and the doc
