uon a boy nas mane up nis minu to
a thing of this sort ho ought to carry it
out by all meaus. Tlio iiist stop iu tlio
programme is to begin snvlng up Dread
and meat. When you havo a bushel or
so of provisions hidden in tho barn or
under tho wood-shod you aro ready for
the battle with tlio cold world. Mako
your start at night. This will prevent
tho sun from tanning your complexion,
aud you will bo quilo cortiviu of tlio
company of a tramp or two.
Somo boj-s leave a nolo pinned to tho
pillow of their bed. .Tins nolo goes
on to sav that the boy has been jawed,
bulldozed, starved, pounded and
knocked down iuhI dragged out, until
lio has mado up his mind to sever tlio
connection. lie will never bo heard of
more. It is probably tho b't way to
loavo a nolo oi this kind, as the family
are then mai;o to 1 1 1 ly reaiuv3 tueir

tle upon some plan for the future.
1'crhaps vou want to bo a sailor? .Noth
ing is easier. Mako your way to nomo
lakfl or sea-port, and most any Captain
will take you. If ho can't disgust you
with tin) Baiiyr'ng bus'ness in about a

in a few days or weeks. Vou want t

If you have decide I tobocomo a bank

It is the beet cure in tho world for that
disease- called -"swcll-hend."' There's
a heap of romanco in tho idea of run

before you are a mile away! You've got
a peek or more of our meat and moldy
bread in a pillow-case, seventeen conts
in your pocket, and Just think bow yonr

homo! Tho romance begins to wear off,
eli? You dun't care half as much about
mormaids and palin-grnvos and plrato
ships as you did an hour ago. You
hutu to leaVo mother after all, and per

Ah! my son, but wo'vo all been thore!
All theo wrinklad and diguilied and

to escape parental tyrannv. El ;ht out

In incessant movement, there bo.n
fieriods of excessive activity usually
astlng about tea days. Such a period
may be called a seismic storm. These
storms are separated by periods of rela
tive calms. Tho storms havo their
greater regularity in winter, and sharp
maximums aro to bo observed in spring
aud autumn. In tho mldnt of such n
period, or at Its end. there is usually an
earthquake Usually these storms are
closely related to barometric depres
sions. To distinguish these movemonts
from thoso which occur under li 1 1-li
pressure they are called baro-seisUiio
movements, tho latter being: callod vol-cano-ceistulo
movements. Tlio relation
of theso stoinis to baromotilo fluctua
tion has been observed to bo vory
marked during tho t. mo of a volcanic
eruption.' At tho commencement of a
storm tho motions aro usually small,
and one storm lasting two or three davs
may be Joined by another storm. In
such a enso tho action may bo' a local
one. It lifts been observed that a bar
ometrical depression tended to brin;; a
storm to a maximum; whilo an Increase

Mr. Michael Boesinger, of No. ISO Bridge
street, Brooklyn, Is a small-slssd French
man with a big heart. Before b became
ofticen of this country ha went to the war
snd enlisted In the Northern army. He
was a member ot Company C, of the Forty
seventh New York volunteers, and at one
period during the duel between the South
snd North was stationed with bis company
n Edisto Island, at the mouth of the
Edlsto Hirer. He likes to tell, remlnls
xnces of that period. On Tuesday last h
tent his wife to hire man to kalsomlne
Ills kitchen, and when Mr. Boesinger cams
in at noon the whitewash artist, who was a
sonl black negro, was hard at work. His
dock was .turned to the small but leonine
Frenchman. Then the latter talked.
"When X wns at the war," he began, I
risited many States la the South.
"So did I," rejoined tho negro.
"I was In Georgia," continued Mr. Boes
inger. "So was I," said the whitewash artist.
"And in Virginia," intorjoctod thtfGauL
' "Me too," rosponded the kalsominer.
"And," ooutlnued the Frenchman, "I
sras on Edlsto Idund and"
"So was I," broke in the negro.
" Why," said the little Frenchman, warm
ng up, "KJisto Island Is wbero I was cap
