ClOROK DlRDSEYR. ' JONES' LIFE INSURANCE. Hew He Was Induced to Take Out roller, suid the Wreck It Made or 1IU Feooe and Happiness. Whoa the life insurance agent corneml Jonos out in the corn-field the other duy and persuaded him that a $5,000 policy wus just what ho needed in order that bis friends might reverence his memory, there was not a man in the Bute who was on better tonns with the world in general than was Simon Jones. But the agent had not been gone an hour before every thing seeme.l changed. Not that any of his friends or family had ever Intimated that a sum of that kind would help assuage their poignant grief when he should have shufll-jd off this mortal coil, yet ones could not banish the growing Idea that it would be a fine thing to have five thousand dollars in clear rash. He bad taken out the policy in bis wife's favor, of course, for he would have told you an hour ago that such women as Sally Jones were mighty scarco. But now it seomed to him all at once that it would be rather unfair for Bally to be cavortin' 'round with a 04HSAMJPiU dais l laisnn iicn all that money while ho moldered away quite forgotten by them all. To be sure be was strong and healthy not a better man ta the county, 'twas said but, then, Bally was strong, too; she would be sura to out live him sure to get that five thousand dollars and be a dusuing young widow like Simon had seen and always detested. Sally was not very stylish or daubing at present, certainly. Simon could see her from where he was at work, hanging out the weekly wash, with a screaming baby uador one arm. But, then, who knew how much style Bally might develop if invested w?n Ittttl S tii-inillcent sum as five thou sand dollars I B6 Unhitched his horses and drove slowly to the house, with a growing conviction that he was not long for this world. Uis solemn face at dinner called forth remark from the kind-hearted Sally, and then It came out about the policy Simon had taken that morning. Sally was delighted. "Five thousand dollars," she said, smiling Into Simon's gloomy face. "That would be a mice sum for me and the children In case you. should be taken away ; nothing like pmiding for a rainy day." . , , "You wouldn't git it unless I died," snapped the irritated Simon. "Course not, which I hope won't be for a long time yet," replied Sally; "but still it's a good thing. Now, there was Leo Barnes, who died, an his insurance was two thou sand, an' whatever Mary would a-done without that money Is more" "If you think I'm such a weak shake down aa Lee Barnes, you're greatly mis taken," Interrupted Simon, angrily. "He never was no 'count, an' his wife was a flantin' 'roun tryia' to git married agin 'fore he'd been dead six months. Don't bold up them Barnes for no pattern to me I" Sally was astonished at this outburst from the generally good-natured Simon. "I never said you was like Lee Barnes," she retorted, "I said he left his wife two thousand dollars insurance when hs died, and he did, too." Well who cares if he did I" cried Simon, angrily rising and leaving the kitchen In a half. He was convinced at once that Sally would much prefer that five thousand dol lars to him, alive. "That's the way with women," he mut tered. "AUthey think of is money; and A. . . . ...-... null li 1. I've a'WuVs been a gwd husband. Nobody fiin't s.y I haven't." Tim fui'tttvtt Sally nor any one els had svr Imputed tlds fact did not occur to tha nugii l"U imiuou, who weut about his worU inooly uiil l cut, his miud filled with b urutMS toward every oue. Sally uurwlitd soiit j over Simon's queer behavior, but tl ially coucluleJ aomjthmg h.idwor:i)l him, the hones may bJ, one of thimi w is rather Inclined to balk, ho would be all rkht by supper time. But supper tuna brought no change, nor the next day, uor the next, and Sally's questions only seemed to anger htm. "Are you sick, Simanl" she Inquired, ten der'y; "or have you uoord bui nowsl Somethiu's boiheriu' you; what is it I" "1 toll you there uin't uothin' ths nut ter," replied Simon, sullenly, sitting down "8ALLT MAS BC8ILT CniHSISO." in a chair in which one of the children had Just upset a cup of water. He sprang to bis feet so suddenly that Sally, understand ing the cause, laughed long and loud. At another time Simon would have joined In this harmless mirth, but now, consider ing himself in the light of a martyr, he only gazed contemptuously upon the irrev erent Sally, who still giggled behind her gingh tm apron. "Oh I you can laugh," he sneered "you've uothin' to trouble you, and when I'm cone you're safe." "Where you goin', Siml" cried Bally, eagerly, forgetting her laughter and fail lng to see the significance of this cutting remark. That Simou standing there before her was seriously talking of dying never occurred to her. "Where you goin', Bimon!" she reiterated. "'Cause if you're goin' down to Snyder's, I promised Maria some of them crooked-necked squas es out in the lot, an' you can take 'em ove lf"-r- Simon waited to hear no more, but flung himself off, muttering: "Hang the women, anyhow; none of 'em got a bit of sense." So for more than a week things went on in this cross-grained way. Nothing pleased Simon any more, his appetite failed, and be scowled ho continually that it seemed doubtful if his face ever would straighten out again. His one thought was of that flvo-thousand-dollar policy aud the pleas ure It would bring to others when he could tuke no part in it Sally at last began to ace the reason of Simon's strange mood, but she wisely kept her owu couuhoL A plan formed itself in her mind, however a plan over which she often smiled when about her work. Now the policy had not Brrived yet, but would in a few days. Accordingly, one morning as Sally was busily churning ori the porch while Simon sat whittling in dejected silence beside her, a buggy slopped at the gale, and from it alighted a spruco young man whom Simou instantly recognized as the insurance agent He came briskly up to the porch. "Good morning, Mr. Jones) Fine morning, this; lhave brought you your policy; it is all complete with this exception, as it is iu favor of your wife, here," bowing to Mrs. Jones, who had stopped churning, " it will he necessary for her to siga it (here pro ducing pen and ink). "Will you, my good woman, be so kind as to afnx your name!" Now Sally resented being called "my good woman" in that manner; she hated agents generally and this one in particu lar, for hadn't Simon acted like all pos sessed ever since he come bothering round. Here was the opportunity sho craved. 'faking the policy which the agent ex tended, she unfolded and glanced at its contents. "So this is my husband's life insurance!" "Yes, in'aui." "And it's fur five thousand dollars, ain't itt" "Yes, m'ara." "Iu my favorl" "Yes, in your favor, certainly," replied the agent "Now you see" "Never mind, sir," interrupted the irate Sally. "1 want to toll you 1 don't want no five Uiousaud dollars when Simon dies, nor I don't want no insurance policy either. Simon has acted like a fool ever since he took out this tarnal old tiling; thinks I want him to die so I can have all that money to have a line time with. I don't believe I'd ever get five cents anyhow them In surance companies always bust fore a man dies; anyhow I wouldn't live with Simon another week if he kept this. You under stand, sir, I don't want no policy uor Simon don't neither" And with a dexterous twist Sally tore up the offending paper and tossed the pieces into the yard. j " But, madam, let me tell you let me ex plain; surely there is some mistake," be-J gan the chagrined agent, but Sally cut blm short "I know there's been a mifctako," she said, ' an' I've rectified it look out, sir. this cream may spatter your clothes" us the dasher iiow with renewed energy. The agent turned to Simon who had been a silent spectator of this scene. "Sir, will you permit this ; is it to bo as your wife aaysl" Simon 9miled In a sickly fashion, and taking out his wallet extracted therefrom a five-dollar bill and haudlng it to the agent aaid: "Take thin, air, for your trouble, but as for the policy, I guess well let it be as wife says." The agent took the money and his de parture at once. After a moment's silenoe he turned to his wife and in a rather sub dued voice asked i "Hadn't I better finish that chornin', Sally 1" " I don't care if you do," said Sally. Flokskcr Dumosd. A favorite Kama with Her. A countryman in search of a tombstone to place over the grave of his deceased mother, walked into a stone-cuttiig estab lishment where such things are manufact ured, and looked around at his leisure. He told the stone-cutter about his mother and what he thought her taste would be in such matters, and finally pitched upoa a stone he thought would do. "I'll take this one," said he. "That belongs to another person. Don't you see it has the name of Berry cut on it" "That makes no difference," was the re ply, "my mother couldn't read, and besides Berry was always a favorite name with her, anyhow." Hi that has no character br not a man; he is only a thing. CAamrt WHAT SHALL WE WEAK! ATTRACTIVE SLIP, WITH A SQUARE YOKE, FOR INFANTS. Fashions la sios and In Slippers for Many Ocralona The Variety Afforded for the r.xercUe of Vrraonal Taste In lrvlng I.lttte Hoy. ( A drew shoe quite fiKililonsMo this season, Is one made of silk romxptindiiig in color fciUi the dress and worn with black silk hose. rAHIUU.NArtUC MtOKS AND bUI'I'tHS. The shoe sliowu in the cut is made of Krvm h gray silk and oruaiueiiWd witU nirdalioiis on the iiiHteii that are composed of opu'.lied bcadi and a large bow of gray velvet. The slip(er ruuv.'iit'd in the background is of patent leather and has a bended vamp. As will be seen, two bows ai'pear on thin, one on the viinip anil one on the elastic t nip which fiixteiu the slipper at the instep. The house klioiHT or mul, as this style of shoe u ii-e- quently termed, f urnwhes a very coinfortuMe aud divssy slip)er for the Iiouho. These mules are innde soinetiincs of red kid, some times of silk and sometimes of velvet. The one here illustrated is of red velvet, with a bow of black velvet set with an lmitatiou gem. Fashions for Hoys. There is quite as much variety and opor tunity for the exorcise of personal taste in the dressing of boys ns of girls. Little boys as sume troupers at an earlier age than formerly, but at the tame time they retain the bhort trousers much later than heretofore; suits for tioyaof Uor 13 years being made with them. These short trousers arc quite close fitting, reach just below the knees, ami are plain or finished on the outsido with three buttons. If for ordinary use, or have braid, either in binding or plain rows, sometimes supplemented with a trefoil in braid, or several leaves, for dressy wear. The favorite materials for every day use are fine checked and mixed cloths in brown and red, the latter so intermixed as to be not at all prominent For better suits fine diagonal or corduroy is the choice; aud the dreys suit of the youthful aspirant for society honors is of fine tricot or velveteen, the for mer in green, blue or black, and the latter in brown, blue, black or wine color. Caps madu of the same cloth as the suit, with visors and medium or high crowns, are worn by boys from 7 to 17 years of nge, Derby hats are ah-o liked for the larger boys; felt turbans are chosen for lioys of medium size, also the "Admits." with a straight steeple crown and stiff brim ; while tho polo cap, in gray or brown corduroy, or cloth, and the toboggan cap are chosen, on occasion, for all ages. Little boys are aivorded more dresy caps ninde in plush or velvet; a fancy turbnn with a pointed crown fastened on one side by a button, or a Highlander cap, or Tarn O'Shanter, with a full erowu finished with a button at the top. Domorest's Monthly. Heady Made llowi. The ready made bows for trimming hats and Imimets haveliecome quite an institution. The introduction of these ready made, bows has reduced the work of the amateur milliner to the minimum. Combinations of feathers and riblons are also procurable. Stiff, standing loops are still very fashion ably worn, but the newest bows are made of unfolded rilitmi, and are consequently less "set" in effect Various iieculinr shades of green, particularly those of the pistache variety, are used in combination with all colors, light and dark; and every tint of what is known as vieille rose, from a quite dark red to a pale pink, is in high favor. Trobably never before were riblions presented in such great variety, or used so profusely on every article of dress, from the top of the head to the tip of the shoes, as at present. Passeinenteries and Ornaments. Silver, steel, and gold passementeries and ornaments ore very fashionably employed on evening and reception toilets, and these form the favorite garniture for black velvet basques that are worn with skirts made of lace or the various fashionable nets, silver having the preference at the moment. Kib bons striped with silver are associated with ; tulle for the sash and border for the floumrs; and there are silver beaded nets and deli cately tinted satins embroidered with silver beads, that are very beautiful. A Pretty Design for Infant's Slip. A simple but attractive slip for an infant is in suck shape with a square yoke in the front only. A design for such a slip, represented in the accompanying cut, is described by Demo- rest as having the yoke either quite plain and surround ed by narrow em broidered edging.or tucked and trim med in any fancy style. Tho string should tie attached at the side seam and may be tied either in front or at the back. Fine materials, tsiaudy trimmed, are the choice for infants' wear, rather than an excess of garni ture. For this gar ment two and one eighth yards of yard wide goods will be required, not allowing any- i.vyAJfi's yoke blip, thing for tucks. Two yards and three-eighths of embroidery will be sufficient for the bottom of the skirt and two yards of narrow for the yoke, neck and sleeves. New Basket Goods. New basket surf acwd goods are shown, with the weave produced altogether by surface threads, and the fabric is thus rendered much more durable than ths old style, in which all of the warp and weft threads were interlaced. These novelties are of fairly heavy qualities, and are Intended for tailor costumes as well as wraps. Another novelty has what appears to be several strands of narrow braid woven in each way, and entwined in loops like a "true lover's knot" There are two patterns of this goods, in one of which the braid is very narrow, and in the other it is about one eighth of an inch wide. Watch Pockets. Watch pockets are very little used. The abort chain, about three inches in length, popularly worn has a ball and a hook to se cure it, and the small watch is slipped inside the front of ths vest or jacket With a long chain to wear around the ueck, the old fash ioned watch pocket would be required, and should be at the left of the bodice, at si bsisw (La vait line.

It Is not perfectly well understood how tlie hxnl is niado, but here are a few details from the patent of Dr. Auer, which throw some light on the subject: Take a solution of zir con and nitrate or actetate of lantbouum or yttrium, and soak It in the woolen or cotton that is to form the hood. The tissue Is then carbonized, and leaves a sort of network, which is applied to the Bunscn. The nets thus procured apioar more favorable to the production of light than the massive cylin ders of xircon tested in 158 by Teesie de Mot tay on oxhydwgeu burner.

The durability of the hood ought also to be determined by exact trts. Effect of High Altitude. During two balloon ascensions, Dr. Itey, of Taris, made some Interesting observations upon the effect of reduced atmospheric press ure in diminishing the arterial tension, and obtained the following sphymographic trac iiiKs which have been reproduced in Popular Science News. SPHYMOUKAI'HIC THAUINliS. In Fig. I the lower line shows the pulse trneing taken at the heightof 8,400 feet, while Is-ating ninety five times a niinufe. Tlieupjer tracing was taken one hour after reaching the ground. The spuygiiiograpb was attachnd to the right radial artery of the aeronaut, who was acvustomed to iMtlloon ascents, and presum ably uiiiifTccted by the excitement of the sit nation. Fio. 2. The tracings shown In Fig. 9 were also taken from the right radial artery; the first during the inflation of the balloon, end ths second when it had reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet. Although these were taken from a different person, the effort of the high altitude seems to be nearly the same in loth cases. Dr. Rey notes particularly that the line or loti-eiit is practically the same at all altitudes, but that the summit of the pulsa tion forms a ltvs acute angle at tbe higher level, and the descending line shows a much more marked irregularity, while the time of the entire pulsation is considerably shorter. The difference between the normal pulses of tbe two aeronauts is also worthy of note. Telegraphic Messages Without Wire. The problem of transmitting telegraphic messages without the use of wires Is one worthy of attention, although but little prog ress has yet lcn made in flint direction. Some time ao l'rofessor Dollear of Tufts .ollefse, exhibited a telephor.o through which articulate words could be distinctly heard, sven when it was not couuocted with the line wire. This phenomenon was due to tho in ductive actioji 6f the current transmitting the words; and Professor Dolbear has recently published the details of a method by which he can transmit signals for a distance of half a mile at least, without the use of any con necting wire. It depends upon the same prin i lolo of induction the varvine electrical con dition of the apparatus at tbe transmitting station, inducing a similar condition at tne roonlviiiir end. Although tbe invention is yet only in the experimental stage, it may, if found of practical application, prove to Do or equal lmortance with that of the telegraph itself. Popular Science News. Effects of Sallejllc Acid. Tim committee of the Academic de Medi cine has had the matter of salicylic acid now so much used to prevent fermentation in food uroduct under consideration, and In a report recently made says: "It eiug well estaUlshea oy meaicai ob servation that feeble and pr.jugrd dally of salicvlic acid and its darivatives can cause considerable trouble to the health of certain persons who are sensitive to those forms of drugs, particularly old people and In those whose venal or durestive functions are no longer in perfect order, therefore the addition of tbe saucylatea to liquid and solid aliments will uot be permitted."

II "NEARLY CRAZSD with pain" Is the sad cry of many ft victim or rheumatism or ne araigia, anu ireuaenny other diseases, such as kidney and liver complaints, are directly traceable to rheu matism or neuralgia. These diseases, for some nne xplainable reason, are rapidly in creasing, and in many instances are the direct cause of much sickness which so hides its real origin as to be mistaken for i other diseases. In curing rheumatism, neu ralgia, lick headache, and In manv cases of kidney and liver troubles, Athlophoros has nnilm Those who have used it are best qualified to speak of its merit. HL. Anderson,832 West Lake St., Chi cago, 111., says : "I nave had rheumatism off and on for many years, but never so bad as the last attack, being at that time confined to my bed, and unable to move without the greatest pain. My wife applied hot appli cations, so hot that it would nearly blister me. This was only temporary relief, for as soon as the application was cold the pain came right m k. I saw among the names of parties advertised as having used Athlo phoros some I knew, so I concluded to give it a trial. After using it a few days I was well and have not been troubled since. One bottle was all I used." Last February, J. 8. Reeder, Theatrical Wig Maker, No. 1S2 West Madison. Office H.Chicago, 111., was vcr.v badlv crippled with inflammatory rheumatism in one of his lower limbs. Mr. Keedersays: " Itiirst com menced by foot swelling. I thought it was dropsv, but the pain was too great for that, then it began to spread up my leg, nearly to my knee. Oh I the pain was excruciating. I was recommended to try Athlophoros, and with less than a bottle of the medicine, my rheumatisniwasentirclvdrivenfroni my sys tem, and I have never been troubled since."
