A cynical doctor, withal a man of -wonderful
resources and a quick mind, lives
on one of the avenues on the South Side.
He was in his study :i few nights ao when
a young man came in and began question
ing him about the propriety of marrying.
The 3-oung man foolishly raved over his
sweetheart, and called her angelic and so
on. He was afraid that she was too fragile
for this world The old doctor grunted.
"Fragile, eh'1 ho asked. "How fragile?
Ever test her fragility." Let me give you
some figures about her and womankind in
general, showing how fragile they are.
Let us suppose that this piece of perfection
is in moderately good health. She will
live to be, say CO years old. Women don't
hko to die any more than men do not as
much for women never grow old, you
know. Listen to me. She will eat one
pound of beef, mutton or some other flesh
every day. That's 305 pounds ol meat in a
"In sixty years it's 21,900 pounds. How's
that for fragile? She will eat as much
bread and as much vegetables per diem,
and there you have in sixty years 43,800
pounds of bread and meat. If she is not
too angelic she will drink daily no less
than two quarts of coffee or tea. And by
the time she is ready to have a monument
she will have consumed 173 hogsheads of
"Now, young man, these figures do not
include the forty or fifty lambs she will
worry down with mint sauce. It does not
take into consideration tho 2,000 spring
chickens, the 500 pounds of butter, tho
50,000 eggs and the four hogsheads of sugar
she will consume in sixty years. It doesn't
take into consideration her ice cream, her
oysters, her clams aud such. All this
means about forty-five tons. Fragile?
Think of your affinity in connection with
these figures, and then rave over her being
fragile. Young man, you are a fool. Boofl"

indicate that it is there looked on as spe

Says an English authority: "Without
doubt it is the most common, the most im
portant, and in its effects tho most fatal of
all tho diseases which exclusively affect
ihildron." It is now hardly, if at all, lets
common on tho continent than in Eug
laud. In America it was formerly cithGr very
rare or greatly overlooked. Two distin
guished medical oxports affirm it to be
now common here. The change is proba
bly duo to the fact that the immense in
crease in our foreign population, tho mul
tiplication aud growth of our cities, the
ast lucroRse of wealth, with its luxurious
habits on the one hand, and of poverty
with its poor food and bad surroundings
on the other, have brought us much nearer
than formerly to the domestic, social and
unhygiouic conditions of the old countries.

I used to know a bon vivant who never
ate oysters except after dinner. He board
ed for many years at one of the famous
hotels in this city, and during the oyster
season every day, as soon ;ls he had fiuished
his dinner in the salle. he used to walk
directly to tho oyster counter, on tho
ground floor, and eat a dozen blue points
on tho half shell, which tho watchful at
tendant always had selected for him. This
experienced epicure scorned to begin a
meal with oysters. "What!" he would
say, "put cold bivalves on an empty stom
ach? Such a practice must ruin digestion.
"Begin your meal with warm soup,
which gently stimulates tho stomach and
gives it a tone. When you are through
with a hearty meal, your stomach craves
something cooling. It ought to be grati
fied. Not with a viand hard to digest, but
one which dissolves easily with the heat
of tho stomach, imposing no labor upon
tho digestive faculties. Oysters are just
the thing cooling, of delicious flavor, re
freshing; they settle tho appetite and
make the whole system feel at ease. They
are tho scientific climax to a banquet, aud

An Anecdote of Jtccnieaw.
Governor Thomas B. Jones, of Alabama,
tells this incident of his boyhood, part of
which period was spent in school in Vir
ginia: "On my way homo for a vacation I
passed through tho capital for the express
purpose of getting a glimpse at President
Buchanau. Standing in tho National hotel,
I remarked to a friend that I hated to leave
the city without seeing the president. An
elderly gentleman, who was reading a paper
near where wo stood, looked up with a
smile aud remarked:
" 'So you want to see tho president, do
you? Meet me here nt 10 o'clock to-morrow
and we will pay him a visit.' "
"It is needless to say I kept the engage
ment. The gentleman was on hand, and
we got into a carriage, but I didn't know I
was riding with the president of the United
States till after we had reached the White
House and heard him addressed by his
title. Then my modesty got the better of
me and I wanted to retire, but the presi
dent kept me quite awhile, and I wont
away thoroughly happy." Washington

Probably very few Americans are aware
that the kingdom of Wurtemberg, belong
ing to the great empire of Germany, is
ruled, indirectly of course, by an Ameri
can, or more properly speaking,by an ex
American. This, as all other royal secrets,
Is very well known to the people, but, not
wishing to form a two years' intimate ac
quaintance with the "Zuchthaus," they
wisely keep their mouths closed. But it is
nevertheless a fact. Richard W. Jackson,
who holds what some may consider a posi
tion, waa born in Steubenvisle, O. His
father, who Is a farmer at that place, was
cousin of the famous Stonewall Jackson.
Like nearly all farmers' sons, he toiled on
the old farm and attended the village
Bchools, and afterward entered one of the
Ohio colleges, but being of a decidedly
musical taste, and having exceptional tal
ent, he decided to make musio his profes
sion, and toward that end he left the col
lege he was attending before graduating,
and went to the city of Stuttgart, capital
of Wurtemberg, which is celebrated the
world over for its conservatory.
HARD LUCK AT FIRST.
Here he devoted himself diligently to his
music and to acquiring the German lan
guage with great success, when an acci
dent occurred that for a while seemed to
blot the entire futuro of this ambitious
American. The muscles of his hand from
constant practice became paralyzed, mak
ing it utterly impossible for him to con
tinue his musical studies. Friendless, al
most penniless, in a strange country,
forced to renounce that which he had been
striving so hard to gain, his position waa
anything but a happy one.
While in this embarrassing predicament
a good angel, in tho person of Mr. P. S.
Potter, of Boston, appeared. Mr. Potter
was appointed United States consul at
Stuttgart by President Grant in July,
1S75, and upon reaching his post and tak
ing charge looked around for a competent
clerk, and becoming acquainted with Mr.
Jackson offered him tho position, which
was, as can be imagined, gladly accepted.
Nor did it prove an unwise selection. Mr.
Jackson devoted himself to his new duties
as industriously and energetically as ho
had done to his music. After being in the
office for about a year Mr. Potter ap
pointed Jackson United States vice consul,
and he was confirmed by the secretary of
As vice consul Mr. Jackson did bis duties
ably and patriotically and out of office
hours, music being denied him, used to
take long walks in tho many beautiful
parks of which Stuttgart has a largo num
ber. During these walks Mr. Jackson often
met the king, sometimes on foot, some
times riding, and upon these occasions
would politely raise his hat to the king and
bow, who would as politely return the bow.
TAKEX UP BT THE KIXG.
The king seemed to bo attracted by tho
American's manner and politeness and
made inquiries as to who he was and then
requested a personal interview. In answer
to this invitation Mr. Jackson visited tho
king at his palace, and made such an im
pression upon his majesty that he waa
asked to resign, his commission as vicecon
sul of tho United States and become one of
tho royal court. Jackson, with American
shrewdness, wished to mako a good bar
gain secure, nnd toward that end had sun
dry important and carefully worded docu
ments drawn up and signed by each. Ho
thereupon resigned his position as vice
consul, renounced his American citizen
ship and swore allegiance to the king of
Wurtemberg and the emperor of Germany.
lie returned to his modest boarding
house to pack his few effects and be called
for by the royal coach, with footmen gor
geous in shining livery. Upon his appear
ance they bowed nnd kept on bowing until
he was comfortably seated, and then tho
coach whirled away to the Koenigliches
Schloss, where a suit of five apartments,
luxuriously furnished, awaited him, and a
host of footmen stood ready for his call.
This sounds more like an "Arabian
Nights" tale than tho truthful nccount of
an occurrence in a civilized country like
A largo annual stipend was settled upon
Mr. Jackson for life, and, as there was no
court vacancy, ono was created, namely,
"Reader to his majesty," to meet the
emergency. Only two other crowned heads
have court readers, the emperor of Germany
nnd Queen Victoria, and therefore by ono
being created in Wurtemberg tho honor
for Mr. Jackson was considered excep
tional. It was not long before other hon
ors began to come. The king of Holland
presented him with the "Knight's Cross of
the Golden Lipn of Nassau," tho order of
tho houso of Luxembourg. Tho king of
Saxony, then visiting Stuttgart, was so
highly pleased with tho ex-American that
he bestowed on him the "Knight's Cross of
the Albert Order."
Tho Emperor Joseph of Austria invested
him with tho very ancient "Order of the
Iron Crown of Austria," one of the high
est gifts that the Austrian monarch can
bestow. The king of Wurtemberg, about
a month after Mr. Jackson's appearance in
court, conferred on him the title of "Ge
heimer Holrath," nnd mado him his privy
counselor, and a few week3 later gave
him the "Knight's Cross of the Crown of
Wurteniburg," besides making him a

Xo "Work, No Pleasure.
Some polemics arguo that but for that
unfortunate affair in Paradise we should
now bo living in a play day instead of a
work day world. Yet labor seems so es
sential to the happiness of the human
family as at present constituted, that one
can scarcely conceive of true enjoyment
without it. It is not reasonable to sup
pose that Adam was ever an idle man or
Eve an indolent woman.
When we arc past work, the remem
brance of our labors, if they have been hon
orable and useful, Is the chief solace of our
retirement. Does a man derive the same
pleasure from tho possession of wealth
when he has received it as an inheritance
that he would have derived from a com
petence won by tho sweat of his brow or
the energy of his brain? Ever' one knows
that he does not. The veteran merchant
takes cemfort in the recollection of his
business enterprises, when the pastimes
and recreations of his youth and maturity
seem to him "stale, fiat and unprofitable."
Yes, tho memories cf labor are sweet.

ness of his children set them to work en

to by one'fc self. The finger nail should be
filed into shape never cut, as the knife
or scissors makes the nail brittle. Then
souk the nails in warm water for a few
minutes. Give them a good scrubbing
with soap and stiff hand brush. Then with
a little powder and a polisher a gloss can be
given them. 1 his attention daily, with a
visit to a manicure once a week, will keep
the nails m perfect condition and whisper
at all times of an innate refinement.

custom in France that only the bridegroom
gives the ring." "Ah," 6aid Napoleon,
'that ibcood:" and whispered inM. Pradt'i
ear: "But do you know why the women
receive the ring? It is a custom faasded
on the Roman law which ordained that all
-slaves should wear ring?, and a the women
a-p our slaves they ought to wear this
