NOBODY REALLY CARES.
(.Margaret Eytinge in Harper's Weekly.
If you've anything to grieve you,
And fiU your heart with tears,
If Poverty bides near you.
And your days are dimmed with to an,
If you find with soul despairing
Io answer to your prayers,
Don't say a word about it, for
Nobody really carea
If health and strength forsake you,
And pain and sickness bring
A gloom that clouda the sunshina
And shadows everything,
If you feel that lot so weary
But seldom mortal bears,
Don't say a word about it, for
Nobody really cares.
world is fond'of pleasure,
k id, take it at its best,
1 i f adly bored unless you
5o. et it with smile and jest;
It yawns o'er want's complainings.
At sorrow coldly stares,
So never tell your troubles, for
Nobody really cares.
A Yli61e Temperance lecture.
Detroit Free Press.
Mr. llenry Clews, a well known Wall
street man, says that the men who drink
whisky are sure to go to the "wall" on
the "street." Men in the stock business
have excitement enough without alcohoL
A glass of wine at dinner may be wU
enough, but to drink to celebrate success
or todrown chagrin at losses is to destroy
one's chances.
When a man has lost, he needs to keep
himself in the best of spirits not alco
holicto eat good dinners, amuse himself
and look carefully after his health; but
above all things let whisky alone. He
can always win if the whisky is in his
competitor instead of himself. This ap
plies to all business, where competition is
sharp? Indeed in what busiuess nowa
days is it not sharp? - There is a whole
temperance lecture in a few words.
A Tail-Casting Lizard.
Cincinnati Enquirer.
rv.a i?7rd bfilone-s to a larse family
called Geckos. They are principally
found in the east and northern countries
of Africa, and are remarkable for many
peculiarities. Nearly all of them resem
ble the bark of trees, but this has the re
markable faculty of throwing off ita
stumpy tail when attacked, the cast-on
member leaping about twisting and con
tracting, thus attracting the atteution of
the pursuer until the owner makes good
its escape. If you examine the anatomy
of the tail the why and wherefore of this
is easily understood. The joints of the
backbone are very delicately put together,
and snap at the slightest warning; and
almost immediately anew tail begins to
orow out, and in . some cases no less than
two or three tails have appeared, present
ing a most remarkable spectacle.
The Issue of Cents.
Chicago Journal.1
The first coin ever issued in this country
was the ld-fashioned cart-wheel cent. ' The
first issue was in 1793, and there were
three dies made. With the single excep
tion of the year 1815 there ha3 been no
break in the issue of cents from that time
to the present The labor required to se
cure a sample of the three varieties of
cents made in 1793 is very great, and they
bring from $3 to $5 each. The cent of
17SJ4 is a trifle more common and can be
bought for about 60 cents, while a sample
of the issue of 1793 i3 worth $1.25. It
was in this year that the liberty cap was
changed to the fillet head, and these were
issued regularly for thirteen years, when
the Goddess of Liberty appeared on the
face of the coin, with thirteen stars sur
rounding it A cent of the issue of 1799,
in good condition, is worth $40 or $50.
Swallowing a Chicken's Heart.
Chicago Tribune.
A romantic young waiter-girl at a hotel
ia Ontario, C aa, came near losing her
ii-iv hv trvinsr a foolish ex-
periment. She had heard an old saying
that auy girl who swallowed a chicken s
heart raw would have for a husband the
first malo iersou she shook hands with,
and believing the proverb, attempted to
swallow a chicken's raw heart, but failed.
The heart stuck in her throat and would
not move either way, down or up. A
doctor was called in and arrived only m
season to save the deluded girl from tm
untimely death by choking.
Lithographic Stone.
Chicago Times.
The discovery in California lately of
considerable quantities of the peculiar
stone used by lithographers is the subject
of much remark in the papers of that
state. Heretofore the best lithographic
stones have been found at Kelhelm and
Solenhofen, near rappenheim, on the
Danube, in Bavaria; but they have been
found also in Silesia, England, France,
Canada and the West Indies They are
found in beds, commencing with layers of
the thickness of paper till they reach the
dimensions of one and several inches in
thickness, when they are easily cut, being
yet soft in the quarries, to the sizes re
quired for printing purposes.
Bismarck's Clerk.
The Argonaut,
Prince Bismarck informs" the German
reichstag that his clerks work from 8
o'clock in the morning until midnight;
that they are excellent lawyers and lin
guists; that they are absolutely trustwor
thy, and that he pays them much less
than jthey would ordinarily etrn inpri-
