A Tribute to Woman.
As a rapid and exhaustive ob?
server woman outshines man more
than the beauty of day at high
twelve surpasses the Uiekor of a
brimstone match. With one little
bat of her eye a woman can see
things to which man with all his
boasted discernment remains for
ever blind, and though she may be
somewhat .slow about getting up in
the morning, oi in lixing herself up
n? go somewhere, she is quick of
eye and wide sweeping in her
glance. The focusing machinery
in the visionary department of her
mechanism is always in gear, aud
operates with lightning precision
without hitch or irietiou. Put her
in a cannon and shoot her through
a millinery store, and if she sur?
vives the shock to her nerves siie
can tell you ivitb a precision that.
M-euis phenomenal the exact shade
in eve.y ribbon in the entire cou
c? in. Send her aloft in a ualloon
w.ieii the wind is careering over
tlie city, aud siie can tell you the
etui tents of every clothes lim? in
(own, without even stopping tu
catch her breath. *
if you are to have a fashion re
port in fifteen minutes that would
tiike you three weeks to prepare,
send the dear creature to church.?
n \uu want to know anything that
e.tii be seen shut your eyes and tell
your wife to look. If you want wis
uoin of any description that is visi?
ble iroui the uou-etop or a box at
lue opera, blindfold yourself and
lud her gaze. With one corner of
tu. i eye she will see more iu the
i.r,.^meut. of an instant thau you
ct t,.d discern iu two weeks with a
ueid glass. For breadth, scope and
;n curacy the amount of observa
to.ii she can grasp with a single
wink-makes a government survey
sv? m contracted and deficient.
Clues All Around.
A boy about twelve years old re?
ported to a policeman the oilier
day that a robbery had occurred at
the house under very mysterious
circumstances. The sum of &J5,
wnich was in a china vase on a
bracket, had taken wings.
"Weie any of the (buns or win?
dows found open?"asked the officer.
-And you haven't picked up any
?'That's the trouble, sir?there's
claes till you can't rest. I wan't to
jit. id! and camp out, and dad thinks
1 cribbed the money. Dad wants
t'- go to Chicago, aud maim thinks
l e's got the bundle. Manu wants
a new summer wrap, aud dad says
.-lie clawed them ducats for sure.?
Tue hired girl is going to be mar?
ried next ?eck, and dad and mann
and me believe she raked in the
slake to go on a bridal tour. Tell
you what, mister, when 1 see how
many clues can be picked up on a
iu lie case 'ike this, it makes me
anxious to know which of us will
cuuie out on top."
How an Old Man May Prolong His Life
An old man must clothe warmly.
After the age of sixty, any idea of
hardihood and of lacing weather
must be laid aside; neither the skin
iiur the lungs can bear cold. Cold is,
in fact, the great enemy of old peo?
ple and it is a fact that, if a man
of sixty or sixty-five goes to a wann?
er climate than that to which he
has been accustomed, his life is pro
lunged. Warn flannel clothes should
be worn next the skin day and night
and there should be plenty ot win?
ter garments. If there is the least
tendency to asthma or attacks of
bronchitis, two or'tbree folds of a
silk or woolen handkerchief should
be \\ovu over the mouth, aud if the
weather be very cold, over the nose
also. Robins also must be kept
warm, for the animal heat iu the
man past seventy is often deficient,
and in very old people eveu drinks
should be taken warm, as the
sources of animal heat are being
dried up. OKI people will often like,
rooms kepi at a temperature of sev?
enty degrees or higher, when young?
er people are ball' stifled in them.

The Eichest Street In the World.
No stteet in the world possesses
more value than Fifth avenue. Yet
the city derives but one million dol?
lars a year iu taxes upon the proper?
ty, which shows conclusively that
this city sutlers from the epidemic
of undervaluation. The total assess?
ment upon the property ulong the
avenue is but $40 449,000, although
it must be worth six orseveu tunes
that amount. As an instance of
undervaluation, Mr. Vanderbilt's
property may be taken. His house
cost $o\00.0,M0, exclusive of (he
iaiid iipon which it. stands, which is
said to be worth half a million more.
Yet the whole establishment is as
^eased at ?1,000.000. The house of
his son. William K., which is said
.Jo have cost 5L',000,000, exclusive
of the land, is assessed at S5(?0,000,
while that of Mr. Webb, his son in
law, quite as expensive in value, is
luted at $400,000. Mr. Vanderbilt's
former residence which cannot be
worth less than ?750,000, is rated
at 6140,000. The Stuart marble pal?
ace is assessed at S5U0,000. James
Cordon Bennett's residence, for
w Inch -*350,000 was refused, is rated
at S150.0U0, while Robert Bonner,
whofc-e place is not much more valu?
able, pays taxes on a valuation of
?575,000, which indicates that the
owner ol Dexter aud other equally
as luinous horses is an honest man.

Mr. J.M. McCann, of Bridgeport,

journals of the United States and
Canada, and a huge chicken raiser,
says from experience tiiat if St Ja?

led to poultry suffering from chick?
en cholem, all that are able to swal?
low will be restored to health, and
if sal m ated pills are forced down
the tin oats of those who cannot
.-wallow they will llap their wings
