.THE CARIBOU ON ICE.
How This Humorous Animal Amuses Him* self in Winter. After tho ico has formed in November it is soon followed first "by snows, and then by thaws or rain. The latter con verts the snow into slush, resting on tho firm ice beneath. Now, any sensible creature would keep away from such a mess. But not so the caribou, for to it this makes the very gala time of the year. The herd go out upon the ice in single file, then scatter, and each one falls to pawing up the slush with its fore feet. After they have tired of this performance they fall upon their knees, and seem to lap the ice with their tongues. Why they do this is, as far as the writer has been able to learn, a mystery. It certainly is not thirst, since they have crossed a dozen open brooks in their morning ramble. Perhaps, to use one of those slang ex pressions so happily indefinite in leaving unbridled liberty of detail to tho imagina tion of tho hearer, "they do it for grandeur." This is tho most simple, and indeed at times it seems the only explana tion of many of the vagaries of "this most singular creature. After awhile one will suspend opera tions, seem to think things over generally, then go gravely over to where another Las miued down to apiece of ice of extra flavor and prod and poke it with the ut most vigor. The assaulted party rises to its feet and meekly resigns its place to the intruder, which immediately drops upon its knees and continues the operations of its predecessor, while tho ousted either passes along the compliment by routing out another or proceeds to dig anew spot for itself. Then perhaps all will lie down for a while, and thougli 0110 would think the bed about as congenial as the inside of an ice cream freezer, chew the cud in apparently the acme of bovine com fort. Next, one will slowly rise to its feet, round up its back, and stretch itself, survey its comrades to select the one which seems most comfortable, and then, actuated by that perversity of disposition we so often see and anathematizo in tho human early riser, proceed to stir it up •with hoof and liorn, until it too gets upon its legs and joins in tho game. Soon all are on their feet, and, falling in one behind tho other, move for the woods in singlo file, headed by tho leader —always a bull, though not invariably the largest in the herd. They move off at a walk, their heads hanging down pre cisely like cows driven to pasture. Sud denly one will become possessed of a devil, and, breaking from the ranks with a hop, skip and a ump, charge through tho line again and again, until it is thrown into complete disorder. Then it will as suddenly fall into place, as demure as a cat, saying, as distinctly as an attitude can speak, "What! you do not mean to charge this untimely disturbance to me, do you?" The march is then resumed and all may disappear at the meekest kind of a walk in tho surrounding forest or, without the slighest apparent cause, tho herd will break into a run at a pace so keen you almost fancy you can hear them whiz as they cleave a passage through the air. This burst of speed may last for a hundred yards it may be kept up through thick aud thin for five miles the one is about as likely as the other.—Harper's Magazine. A Dude of tho Year 1G25. He was outrivaled in the next reign by George VilJiers, first Duke of Euekingham "of that ilk," tho splendor and costliness of whose attire are mentioned by several writers. His jewels alono were reckoned at a total of £'300,000, at the then value of money, which we must multiply by five or six to bring up to the present standard. "It was common with him at an ordinary dancing," says an authority, "to havo his clothes trimmed with great diamond but tons, and to havo diamond hat bands, cockades and earrings to be yoked with great and manifold ropes and knots of pearl in short, to be manacled, fettered and imprisoned in jewels, insomuch that at his going over to Paris, in 1625, lie had twenty-seven suits of clothes made, the richest that embroidery, lace, silk, velvet, gold and gems could contribute one of which was a white uncut velvet, set all over, both suit and cloak, with diamonds valued at £80,000, beside a great feather stuck all over with diamonds, a3 well also his sword and spurs." This magnificence, it must be added, well be came his handsome features and well pro portioned figure, of which, with some thing more than Episcopal unction, Bishop Goodman says: "He had a very lovely complexion: he was the handsomest bodied man of Eng land his limbs were so well compacted and liis conversation bo pleasing and of so sweet a disposition." Even the grave Clarendon kindles into fervor when speak ing of "tho daintiness of his leg and foot, his well proportioned body ana graceful ness of motion."—Gentleman's Magazine. A SJV.w Dress Material. The invention of a new dress material promises to give rise to a new industry of no insignificant proportions. It is an artificial silk, which is said to be an excel lent imitation of the natural product and is made of a kind of collodion, to which has been added perchloride of iron and tannic acid. Tho process of manufacture is somewhat long and complicated, and it remains to be seen whether the materia) can be produced cheap enough to compete with tho work of the silkworm.—Chicago News. Oil for Lubricating Purposes. The Italian admiralty have recently caused to be carried out a number of ex periments with a view to testing the comparative merits of castor oil and oi olive oil for lubricating purposes on board ship.

While You Are Yet Alive Determine to Whom Your Choicest Possessions Shall Fall—A Case in Point—Listing One's Personal liclongings. 1 Every one cannot indulge in tho sensa tion of making a will which disposes of millions. But every one can attain a degree of satisfaction to one's self by making a disposition of one's possessions. We accept it as a matter of course that tho rich man and the rich woman shall bequeath his or her estate to certain heirs suggested by nature or choice, but tho ordinary, everyday people in tho world live along without much thought of a time when somebody else shall possess their all, bo it much or little. Indeed, the very suggestion of making a will is regarded by very many sensible men as a harbinger of evil, a certain preparation for a dreaded time which is sure to bring It nearer. Especially is this true of self made men of a certain age, who haven like dread of moving into a new, fine house which they have built late in life and which they leave untenanted for as long a time as possible from a supersti tious dread. LISTING ONE'S ISKLOXGIXOS. Yet tho idea of making one's will, if squarely faced, is rather a pleasant one All of us, especially all women, have cer tain possessions which are valued for one reason or another, perhaps from associa tion or fancy, perhaps for love of a giver or real intrinsic worth, and each is prob ably aware that some other body has an admiration for and would take good care of that particular thing, while the per sons to whom the disposal of it would naturally fall might set no value on it whatever. A case presents itself to view just now of a little home made plush cov ered stand, not very well finished, not much of an ornamental addition to any room, yet of inestimable value to a widow, because it chanced to bo the last bit of work from the dear hands which had been her support through a long and happy married life. It chanced that dur ing the manufacture of this article a young friend was paying a visit to these people and enjoyed with them the inter est in, and diversion of, watching the table grow under the tinkerer's hands, and one day made the re mark, thoughtlessly aud carelessly, "You must will this to me." Shortly after the sudden death of this gentle man the wife informed tho friend that she had straightway gone and put this bequest in her will. Do you think there is no comfort, perhaps only very occa sional, but still a comfort, in thinking that it will become the possession of ono who, too, watched with interest every inch of plush glued on, every nail driven in, and will value it in quite another way than any other person? Nor is this at all an exceptional case. With almost every possession is some other person associated, and very likely none other, as, for instance, some little child who always begged to be allowed to hold for a minute to her tiny breast the small bust of Flora, which ornamented a bracket in "auntie's" room, or a favorite voting cousin who always smoothed with tender touch the rich folds of your best velvet gown, or the friend who studied with you that history of sculpture in your middle life and brought back an unex pected glimpse of youth and school girl friendships to you both, or the boy Who helped you plant in yon big jar and care for season after season that growing palm? Who will have the same thoughts and such gratification in the ownership of these things as they? to whom can you give a stronger proof of the lessons of kindly remembrance and friendship? NOT AT ALL UXPLKASAXT. Ts there no joy in making these little plans to please others, so that when tne veil of darkness shuts you from their sight, your going may not be all an un broken pain—that no tender thoughts of how you had planned to remain in their thoughts should follow you on the un known voyage to the mysterious beyond? While this, perhaps, is the strongest ar gument for persons who possess only trifling things to make a will, thero is an other, too, which has a pleasant side. Few of us have the slightest idea of what we have things accumulate so fast. In a good sized family of comfortable means there are enough things of value given at one Christmas season to warrant the making of a will. The listing of what one (k?s possess is a pleasant occupation, full of surprises, and would fill many weary hours for elderly people, whose waning eyesight and general feebleness debars them from active interests and employments and leaves their iives but a quiet "season of waiting. Did you ever lose a friend and feel an irresistible longing for something that was hers? It rnigfct be that she had pre sented you with many things, but none could give you the satisfaction that would ensue if you had any old book or little picture she had loved and prized. When one goes away from home it is usual to see that all which is left behind is properly cared for. Why, then, not fol low the same natural instinct when leav ing them' behind forever? To those who had jewels and laces, plate and costly china, it seems as absolutely a wrong not to arrange for their disposal, just as is done in the case of money and other es tates. Heirs r.re merely human, often very human, possessing the faults and frailties of their race as well as the vir tues, and he or she who can adjust his affairs in such order and with such simple directness that there are no wranglings over them is not only a wise man but a public benefactor. For nothing can give to tho world a lower opinion of mankind than the published accounts of tho greed and disputes over an estate.—"S. S. E. M." in Chicago Herald. "Kxperts" In tlio Court Boom..: Under tho present usage the -expert bears witness for one side against tho other whereas the truth beiiig "neither black nor white, but gray,'' may stand in the middle of the disputed territory. The science of the court room is litigious,, not' judicial and no place is found for tne un- biased presentation of. fact, regardless of 1 its bearing upon the personal interest at stake, and with fair credit given to genu ine doubts and uncertainties. To the scientific partisan the court .room doors are wide open to the scientific jurist they I are practically closed, for no one wants his services. In criminal cases, perhaps, a better showing may bo made for here I we have an impersonal state seeking to do exact justice, and its experts have no I private end to gratify. If, however, they are incompetent, the criminal, perhaps a poisoner, may escape punishment, and glaring casea of this kind' are on record, —Professor Frank W. Clarke in Popular Science Monthly. Selecting Seed Corn. Professor Johnson, of the Michigan Agricultural college, has practiced the following method of selecting seed corn for a number of years with satisfactory results: When husking, the most perfect ears are selected and sent to the drying room. A second sorting follows, when all ears not up to the standard are rejected. The corn is then tied up with wool twine in lots of fifty ears or more, or strung on wire with "Smith's device for hanging up corn." The ears are then hung up in the drying room. The room below the drying room is heated by a coal fire, and the chimney from this room passes through the drying room, thus securing a dry and even temperature. First—Selection of perfect ears when corn is husked. Sec ond—A careful second selection. Third —The hanging up of the corn. Fourth— A dry and- even temperature in tho dry ing room. IIow to Tie Knots That Never Slip. The knots here shown were originally illustrated aud described in Prairie Farmer, where it was claimed that they are excellent for the ends of hoisting rope and for a thousand other places, as they are easily, tied and untied, and never work loose or slip. EXCELLENT KNOTS. On the end to which the horses are hitchedusea"bowline"or "sailor'sknot." This is shown at A and C, A being the knot before tightened, showing how it is tied. It is hard to describe how the knot is made, but by studying the illustration and using a stiff string you can learn in a few minutes. When a clevis is hooked in the large loop at the right hand side and pulled, it will tighten and make as firm a knot as any known. The one shown at is excellent for tying to the fork. It is made by passing rope twice through ring and returning the end around rope mcl under both coils. THE OLD TRYST. Like the sccnt of a flower in blooming When the clew drops on blossom and tree, A. memory comes sweetly perfuming The dead p.'ist to inc. And the sounds of the words that were spoken Come floating afar to me now, Like the leaves that are borr)e from this broken And delicate bough, As I walk through this forest where quivers The silvery bloom from the stars, And the moon, who hangs waning o'er livers Wind ripplwl in bars. For their kiss takes me back to the tender Sweet lips that faded too soon, Like tlv* gleam of the stars or the splendor A Ilcd in N'icaraugua. It consists of an ox hide drawn, while green, tightly over a stout framework of wood, and afterward elaborately ijolished, so as to look liko the head of a drum. When dry, a slab of Aiarblo is a soft and downy thing in comparison with it. It was on such abed as this, with a smooth and gaudily colored petate or mat, and a single sheet spread over tho hide, that 1 was invited to repose. I examined this new instrument of tor ture narrowly, and finally turned in with heavy misgivings, particularly as I found that Pedro's mansion was full of fleas, which had already set my nerves on a gallop. I was weary enough, but it was impossible to sleep—the fleas came in hungry squadrons, and the hide bed grew momentarily more rigid and obdurate. At last I could endure it no longer. A bed on the ground, with my saddlo for a pillow and the sky for a roof, would have been a luxury itself compared with this. I got up, unbarred the door, and went out on the corridor. The cool evening air was most welcome, and I vowed audibly not to go to that ox hide bed again, and so re mained outside till dawn.1—E. G. Squier. A Speck of Condensed Sweetness. A Story of "tarry" Jerome. One of the best stories told of the late "Larry" Jerome is that when traveling in Florida not very long ago he stayed at a hotel, the proprietor of which asked him, when he was about to depart, to sign his name in a book not quite like an ordinary hotel register, but one used, after the fashion of an old English custom,, for the purpose of obtaining the names of dis tinguished guests. When Mr. Jerome was about to place his signature with the others, he saw that the writer just before him had incribed the comment, "I came here for cliangt and rest and got it." Quick as thought the witty clubman penned beneath it, "I also came here for change and rest, hut the waiters got tho change and the landlord got the rest."— New York Press. Well Dressed Berlin Women. We have been a little surprised at the number of well dressed people, or rather at the few badly dressed people, seen on the streets. I never saw so many neatly attired girls, and 1 don't think that tho women of any large city on the globe are so tmiformly pretty. One coming from America naturally expects to find the wo men °f Germany very large, bony or fleshy. If yon coino here with that idea in your head you will be disappointed, for the Prussian women are petite, as a rule, below the average stature, well formed and quick iu their movements. The met. however, are large,'mnsculstr and- somt» what gross in appearance.—Cor. Chicagv Times. The Organ of Former Days. The organ is of a much more remote origin than the piano, since it has been known for more than 1,000 years. Con stantino is said to have presented one to one of the kings of France in the Eighth century and the monks were among the first performers on them, though it must have been a somewhat painful process, the striking of the broad keys with the fist being necessary to produce a sound, while the bellows worked laboriously. Organs were used first in churches and cathedrals, but a monotonous effect it must have yielded- under the hardy blows of the bending monk as he sat on his high stool in front of the huge structure for even in its primal days the organ had gilded pipes just as the magnificent organ at Pasadena, on the Pacific slope, which has attracted so much admiration of late. The pedal was of later invention and added much to tho tone of the organ when it was made sufficiently large to rest the foot upon instead of tho tip of tho toe more force could be applied to its pressure and its tone increased or diminished at will. Tho "water organ" is prior to any other, and, though consisting of diminu tive pipes and limited in number, served a good purpose, and now that the organ imitates in some measure most of the other instruments it is truly an astonish ing piece of workmanship.—Globe-Demo crat. I Seeking a Model Cavalry Horse. Although the Arab horse is celebrated for his feats of endurance and courage, the impression prevails in army circles in this country that the Arab blood so com mon in American horses must be modified by a reinfusion of the strain of heavier steeds. It is becoming difficult in this country, where horses are so plentiful, to mount over 10,000 cavalry, as the desider atum of an animal which unites great speed with weight, carrying power and endurance, is hard to pick out from tho animals brought before the purchasing army. Tho formation of a government stud, modeled on those of I-Vance, Ger many and Austria, has been suggested by cavalry officers, who find plenty of heavy horses, r.: plenty of speedy horses, but few that are both heavy and speedy. The same trouble is experienced in Eng land, where it is said that tho horses of fered to tho purchasing officers are alto gother too "line" for the service. Austria seems to have some nearness to solving buys largely i:i Austria when it can raiso tho money to procuro cavalry remounts.— £cs ton Transcr-ipt. 1 That dies with the moon. —Morlev Roberts in Once a Week. Methods of the Hotel Tliie'. The hotel thief is always a clever rascal. From external appearances no one would think of suspecting tli6 weli dressed, gen tlemaulv looking individual who registers with a quiet and uuassum:.-ag air and whoso tone bespeaks both travel and edu cation. IIo never dresses in gaudy colors and his app rel is usually chosen with the utmost good taste, stamping him as a gentleman of refined tastes. IIis tools., of tbo finest quality of tempered steel, consist of a "bar key," a set of bits of various sizes and arranged for either stem or tumbler locks, a small drill, a file, a "sectional stem," pieces of wire, aud a pair of nippers. Tho implements do not occupy much room in the saciiel of tho nomadic thief and are frequently carried I about liis person. Hotel thieves travel in pairs. They manage to secure their rooms ou tho Same floor and, if possible, closo to each other. Tho habits of the guests on that floor are carefully studied, and it is soon ascertained which of the rooms ara unoccupied. If there is only a single lock to contend with the work is soon done—the "bar key," with its appropriate bit, opens the door readily from the out side, and no further arrangements are necessary. When there is a bolt on the inside a liole is bored through the door immediately over the handle or knob, for the introduction of the "sectional stem" and then carefully puttied up until the timo for operation arrives. Five minutes is frequently all the time an expert occupies in "working" a single room. If the guest has left the key in the lock the nippers are used and the key is turned so quickly and noiselessly that no one would be aware of what is going on. If, however, there is an inner or 1 "Talk about 'sweetness long drawn out!'" exclaimed a friend the other day— "if you want to realize what that term means, yon should take into your sys tem a 'little of the sugar that drug gists use in putting up certain prepara tions of quinine and other drugs. I went into a Third street drug store and the proprietor gave me a taste. He just put a little speck of this sugar on the end of my tonguo and informed me that it was just 280 times as sweet as ordinary cane sugar. Well, I should say it was I tasted that sugar all day long, and thero is a faint suggestion of it hovering about my palate even now. The same day I was beguiled into taking that little speck of condensed sweetness on my tongue I smoked four or five cigars and ate a hearty dinner, but the sugar was more powerful than cigars and dinner com bined, and 1 tasted it through the nico tine and roast beef. I really believe honey would have seemed sour after tak ing such a dose."—Pioneer Press "List ener." double lock and a bolt on the door the putty from the drilled hole is quickly re moved, the nippers are inserted, and in' case the inside key has been prepared by filing a sharp awl is used, and, fitting into the slot in the end of the key, turns It readily. Then the "sectional stem," the "fiddle," or the bent wire is inserted through the hole over the bolt, and with an easy turn of the wrist the bolt is thrown back and every obstacle to the en trance of the thief is removed, the part ner keeping watch in the meanwhile.— Chicago Times. A Citadel of Stupidity. It is a notorious fact that our kitchens are the strongholds of ignorance, preju dice, irrational habits and mental vacuity, with the result that Americans suffer be yond any other people from wasteful, unpalatable, unhealtliful and monotonous cookery. Acquiescence in this state of things as somethiug permanent and ir remediable i3 no longer possible. The time has arrived when the advance of in telligence and the spirit of improvement must invade that citadel of stupidity7, the kitchen, and banish from it all degrading associations by the presence of trained women who have made the work there carried on a matter of serious study. Cooking should be done as Northcote mixed his colors, "with brains, sirl" The difference between cooking that is good and cooking that is bad' is very much an affair of attention to trifles. And this power of attention to trifles is the out ward and visible sign of the inward and well ordered brain. Slight mistakes, small omissions, little things done at tho wrong time spoil dishes, and therefore much healthful enjoyment. The charm of good housekeeping is the order of econ omy and taste displayed in regard to de tails. Tho little things are the great things after all, when their influence is taken into consideration.—New York Medical Journal 1 ii vent ill*- :in A risjc:c-r :e .'.

Nay then, dear love, think not that thou canst read 5Iy heart and soul by looking in my face Or weigh their worth by every carelees deed, That thou canst thus all depth of feeling trace.

McQueen in American Magazine. The Kid Grew Weary. Laughing over the story recently told about tho old Chatham theatre, W. B. Gregg recalls that in 1846 or 1847 an old actor named Kirby was the favorite there. Kirby was strong on melodrama and could die so pathetically that he always captivated the house in that scene. Once he was going through a particularly dull play and a kid in the pit grew weary. Stretching himself for a nap ho requested his nearest neighbor in a tone clearly audible, "Wake me up when Kirby dies." The expression raised a hurrah. The curtain was rung down and Kirby was obliged to make a speech. "Wake me up when Kirby dies" was a Bowery expres-. sion from that time down to a very short time ago.—New York Evening World.

Pennies, so long despised in the south aud west, are now demanded by those sec tions so eagerly that the Philadelphia mint, the only one manufacturing minor coins, cannot keep up with the demand. Three million pennies were made at the mint last month, but if double that num ber had been produced it is probable they could at once have been placed in circula tion. With the influx of common, vulgar copper pennies in tho extravagant west and the aristocratic south, there is a drop in tho general prices, particularly of small articles. This, while benefiting the buy ers, will also do good to merchants by in creasing consumption to a very decided extent.
