O’Loughlin in Godey’s Lady’s Book. Oitv Girls Water Their Horse. ft W. Hall, a young farmer near jlontpelier. enjoyed himself hugely a few davs back in watching a couple of citv girls attempt to water their horses at the trough at his place. The horses were checked up. and of course could not get their noses down to the water. This seemed to surprise the young ladies at first, but finally realizing the trouble they both got out of the buggy, and go ing behind lifted up on the hind axle and after raising the hind wheels clear off the ground peeped around the sides of the vehicle to see the horses drink. Finding that the horses didn’t seem to know enough to stick their heads down at the same time they raised the hind wheels one girl remained behind to hold the buggy up and the other went to the horses' heads and tried to pull their noses down to the water. After laughing till he shook several boards off the side of the blacksmith shop from where he watched the girls lift on the buggy and pull on the horses' heads till they were red in the face and almost ready to cry. Will went to their assistance and unchecked the horses. The young ladies gazed at first in be wilderment. and then with a kind of a don't-you-ever-tell look at each other calmly tucked the robe around them, leaned back in their seats, and. after wait ing for their horses to drink, drove off. leaving Will to sit <b>wn on the corner of the trough and ruminate over the city gal and her way of doing things.—Mo desto Herald. The Mozartian System. The all pervading princ:]il- of the Mo zartian y>tem wa> a c- ■nciv.-uess of con struct! 'ii and an unmistakable g<o •- ra pin' of t >n:uity. Before Mozart, melodic figur->. subjects and keys, with all other theoretical ddenda at the di.-j>"-;J of the creative musician, were eoufu-ed. Mere bits of tune and jingle, with a bril liant pa"a_‘- here and there, constitute a movement, or t' -a a composition Haydn had brought much chaotic and irregular Theoretical lore into clear and definite shape, but Mozart simplified matters still more. Introducing the keenest outlines, the m.,.-t beautiful fig ures, together with clear and lucid teachings, he defined the formal con struction of the movement, section, re peat, etc., until now the musician or student can set out with his principal subject or theme, and having no misgiv ings concerning the dogmas of subsidiary subject, complimentary kevs and the like. Schooled in Mozart's principles of con struction. the student could pilot liim sed saieiy through the intricacies of the most advanceu symphony, and it is for is and the pattern he set in this lrectmn t.uat the world of music de hguts m do honor to the name of Mozart.

The blue jay is the most persistent practical joker in the feathered king dom. He will conceal himself in a clump of leaves near the spot where small birds are accustomed to gather, and when they are enjoying themselves in their own fashion will suddenly frighten them almost to death by screaming out like a hawk. Of course they scatter in every direction, and when they do so the mischievous rascal gives vent to a cackle that sounds verv mueh like a laugh. If he confined his prank> to such jokes as this, however, he would not be such a had neighbor to birds smaller than himself, hut when he an:uses himself by breaking the eggs in their nests and tearing the young to pieces with his bill he becomes a pesti lent nuisance, and they often combine their forces to drive him out of ihe neighborhood. They <lo not always succeed, for he is as full of fight as of mischief, but a severe conflict teaches him that they, ten, have their rights, and this induc es him to mend his manners.— Toronto Mail.

Take a strong, stick four or five feet long and sharp at one end and go to some locality, such as the hack of a barn, where the worms are sure to be plentiful. Drive a stick four or five inches into the ground with a hammer or stone and then begin to twist it with a rotary motion. Every few minutes hit the top a rap to drive the point farther into the ground and keep on twisting. In five minutes the worms will begin crawling out of their holes, and all you have to do is to pick them up and put them in your can.— St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

It does seem as if some folks prefer to have the last condition of the liver rather than the first. They per petually and iSe themselves with purgatives totally without virtue as alterative of liver trouble. Hostetler’s Stomach Bitters is the successful candidate lor the people’s choice, and yet, popular and well known as it is. there are unfortunates who keep on frying the drastic remedies of former days. It is t<* 'he intelligent portion of the public that the well known and long tried proj>erti< sof the Bitters appeal. Reason should be guided by experience in the matter of medication. “The best guide to our leet j 9 the lamp of experience,” said a great patriot of the early revolutionary period, and the exclamation is pregnant with truth. For over a third of a century the Bitters daily has met with the endorsement of people suffering from liver .complaint, malaria, con stipalion, rheumatism, debility and troubles accompanied by dyspepsia. Latterly it has declared itself and been thoroughly ap proved as a remedy for “la grippe.” THB WEEKLY FLORIDIAN, TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA. railroad jottings.

Strict orders have been issued by the railroads included in the Transmissouri association that cars, when loaded with grain, must be loaded to their marked capacity. General Superintendent Voorhees, of the New York Central, has recently had built at the West Albany shops anew observation engine which he will use in making inspections of the road. C. A.

WORLD’S FAIR NOTES. A model of ocean currents is to be ex hibited at the World's fair which will possess great practical value. Only about one man in every thirteen in the United States can secure one of the Columbian souvenir coins. The Miners’ association of Nevada county, Cal., is arranging to have a small stamp mill in full operation at the World’s fair as a part of its mineral dis play. The women of Texas are raising money with which to place statues of Houston and Austin and busts of Bowe. Crockett, Travis and Fannin, all celebrated Texas historical characters, in the state build ing at the World’s fair. New York will exhibit at the World’s fair sections of all the trees which are indigenous to the state. Of these there are forty-three species and eighty-five varieties, a number which is not ex celled, it is claimed, in any state in the Union. English music and composers will not be unrepresented at the World’s Colum bian exposition next year. Among those who have accepted an invitation to at tend is Dr. A. C. Mackenzie, who will conduct a performance of his “Rose of Sharon,” or some other work. CHARACTER IN EAffe. Large ears, drooping at the top, be long to personß more animal than hu man. In human beings of low or debased mental standard the ears are large and flabby—note those idiots, cretins, etc. Ears in which the “hem” is flat, as if smoothed down with a flatiron, accom pany a vacillating mind and cold, an romantic disposition. 'When there is no lobe and the ear widens from the bottom upward, the owner is of a selfish, cunning and re vengeful disposition. Large round ears, with a neat “hem” around their border, well carved—not flat—indicate a strong will and a bull dog tenacity of purpose. When the ear is oval in form, with the lobe slightly but distinctly marked, it indicates for its owner a lofty ideality, combined with a morbidly sensitive na ture. The person who has an ear with a rounded, ovate top ig almost without exception one with a placid disposition and a nature that pines to love and be loved in return.—Exchange. ?JJCRATCHEDTEN months.
