?periodical suffering, it doe? not seem to
be the plan of nature that women

something is wrong which should bo
set right or it will lead to a serious de?
rangement of the whole female organ?

Too Late to Sort Cats.
Jim Crocker lived in an old tum?
ble-down house in a little town in
Massachusetts. The cellar windows
being broken out, an opportunity was
afford to stray cats to run in and
out, and sometimes there would be
quite a congregation.
We lost our pet cat one evening, and
thinking she might have joined the
happy throng, we spnt our man over
to ask "Uncle Jim" if he would take a
look and see if she was among the
number. He was generally pretty
good-natured, but this time he was out
of sorts, for he said:
"Your cat may be there, or she may
not be, but I ain't a-going to light up
no lamp and go down in that cellar
this time of night sorting out cats
for nobody, so there."

NATIVE NEW YORKERS SCARCE.
About One Out of Every Ten in the
Now that thirty "emergency" census
takers finished the tail end of their
voile a few days ago we may soon
have light on an interesting question
that this enumeration will throw 6orae
light upon. Out of Gotham's 4.000,000
souls how many are actual New York?
ers?persons born in this eity? Tak?
ing the last federal census as a criter?
ion there Is about one "native born"
New Yorker out of every ten In popu?
lation. Still, even this small balm to
sons?has to be greatly reduced, for in
it Is included every person of whom
no actual knowledge could be obtained
of whom the haste of the census
tempted to throw under this general
heading. Amateur statisticians have
daeldod that there are about 120.000
citizens of New York who have been
born of parents natives of this coun?
try. These drivers in the census re?
sults are of the opinion that if the
qualification were that both their par?
ents were natives of this country not
more than 5,000 persons could qualify
as New Yorkers of the second Ameri?
can general ion. Children of parents
who were Ixirn abroad numbered 1 .
375.000 in the last federal census.
There were then more than 400,000
Americans here who were born in otli?
er states, New York state leading with
a contribution of 125,000 and New Jer?
sey following with 56,000; 30,000 were
born in Pennsylvania, 25,000 in Mass?
achusetts, while 22,000?a compara
lively large number?were born In
Virgula. Therefore the descendants j
of the Knickerbockers are wofully on'
numbered in population if not in
money and real estate.
His Father Was Athlete.
Dr. Dudley of Ahlugton, Mass.,
tells this story of his map David and
his housekeeper, who had great con?
fidence in all that David said and did:
Oae day David was in the barn, do?
ing something which caused a visitor
to say: 'You're quite an athlete,
aren't you?" . j
"Well, yes," replied David; where- i
upon the hoirsekeeper, who stood j
near, said: "Why, I thought you
told me you was Scotch."
"Well," said David, "my mother
was Scotch, but my father was ath?
