(Chicago Herald.J That young woman who the other day sent her "young man's" letter back and dismissed his suit at once and for all be cause the youth was thoughtless enough to address her with a type-writer ought to be regarded as a pioneer in a much-needed reform. She certainly will be commended in many quarters for grasping boldly an evil and sotting her foot on it. The type writer is no doubt a useful and labor-saving machine, but it is gradually becoming an implement of discourtesy, all the same, and its power for evil in this re spect needs to be checked. While there are thousands of business men and others who make constant use of these machines there are also many other thousands who do not, and who retain the old-fashioned idea that in a correspondence of a semi friendly or confidential nature no eye should Tall upon'it but the two partic ipants. Nothing is so exasperating to a person who does not use a type-writer or employ an amanuensis as lo write an autograph letter to a friend on some topic of a half way private nature, and receive in reply a sheet co'.ered with the cold, mechanical imprint of the keys. lie realizes then that the nature of his business is known to at least two others besides the one who alone has a right to know it, and he chafes un der it, and naturally resolves that the next time he has occasion to communicate with that friend he will go and see him in person. Again, the type-writer, except with let ters of the most formal business charac ter, is discourteous, because it carries with it a suggestion of indifference, and noth ing can be more impolite than to so gard a friend's communication. As was before said, the type-writer is useful, but Ihose who employ it so universally should be cautious and mindful of the courtesies find amenities that should always govern correspondence. Between business men, business correspondence may be done by machinery, but between friendly ac quaintances, on matters not wholly relat ing to business, a reply by type-writer to an autograph letter can be considered lit tie less than an affront It certainly is a discourtesy. Unharmed by Thronging Sharks Trinidad Cor. Pittsburg Dispatch. "When a whale is captured off the Bocas the blowing of horns heralds its approach to one of the whaling stations in the isl ands of the Bocas. We at once deter mined to follow the whaling boat which we saw rounding a point, rowed by eight vigorous whalemen; and towing a huge, shapeless mass. The capture of a whale off the coast of Trinidad is altogether dif f erent from an occurrence of the same kind in northern and Arctic regions, owing to the swarming of countless sharks about the defunct monster and their fero cious attacks on his carcass. We followed in .he wake of the whale boat and quite close to the whala Al ready the sharks, with an instinct rivaling that of carrion birds, were gathering round their prey and increasing in numbers every moment We reached Monos, another island in the Bocas, and there at the whaling station, situated at a rlat point on shallow water, the lifeless whale was hauled in close to the shore. Now began the work of cutting up the whale and carrying the blubber masses to the caldrons. At this stage the sharks actually grew frantic, and would jump out of the water to seize on some pieces of blubber they thought within reach. These otherwise dangerous fishes are, on an occasion of this kind, perfectly harmless to mau, and this is well known to the whalemen. One of them having dropped his knife in the water dived to recover it in the shallow water, and was left unmolested by the swarming mon sters, whom he almost touched at every moment Numbers of sharks are alsc harpooned with the greatest facility on these occasions, and the oil which is ob tained from their livers is said to be superior to cod-liver oil in therapeutic properties. Lawless Character or English Spelling. Popular Sciecce Monthly. u Learning to read the English lan guage." says Frederick A. Fernald, "is one of the worst mind-stunting processes that has formed apart of the general edu cation of any people Its evil influences arises from the partly phonetic, partly lawless character of English spelling." He further says: "The spelling of each word must be learned by sheer force of memory. In this work the pupil's rea soning powers can not be utilized, but must be subdued, while his memory is sadly overworked. In the atlairs of the child's daily life the logical following out of rules is rewarded. In learning to spell it brings him only discomfiture and bewilderment w And again: "On the other hand, the child who has difficulty in learning to spell may be expected to develop strong logical faculties. Thus, a boy who had long been at the foot of his spelling class was one day given the word ghost, and, making a desperate attempt at the sort of spelling he had oftenest heard succeed, he spelled it g-h-o-g-h-j-s t. This bringing upon him shouts of laughter, he said, with clinched fist and tearful eves: 4 You needn't laugh; you all spell homelier 'n that . - ROYAL INSURANCE CMP'Y OF LIVERPOOL.
