Tlt<* Confessions of n Prig. In n clever new novel are some confes sions of a prig. Here is an extract: • Ko solvetl to lose no opportunity of improving myself. While 1 was cleansing my teeth this morning, reflected upon the solemnity of life. In my bath, thought cf our first parents in the garden of Eden. While buttoning my braces, asked myself the question, 'What do I live for?' Much moved at family prayer with feelings of thanksgiving * 9 that ) have the in estimable blessing of a mother who can read Greek. Resolution at. breakfast not to talk much in society or make myself too agreeable. A profitable morning. Herodotus. Trigonometry. For mortifi cation at dinner put sugar into beer afid mustard into pudding, but secretly, lest being observed, pride should intervene * ' * Self-examination. O, howl have wasted to-day! Opportunities neglected! Eaten too much at tea."—Exchange. Originator of Our Postage Stamp. Dr. Frederick X. Palmer, the Boston physician who committed suicide by jump ing from a Portland steamer was postmas ter at Brattleboro during Polk's admin istration. He was the orignator of the first American postage stamp, which was engraved by Thomas Ghubbuck, of Spring field. for the postmaster's personal use.— Chicago Herald. England's Welcome to Ur. Mulmes. It must be pleasant for any man to make an afternoon call upon a nation and find himself welcomed as a triend. That pleas ure will certainly fall to Dr. Oliver Wen del! Holmes on his visit to tills country. No literary American, unless it be Mr. Lowell (and we should not except even liim.i occupies precisely the same place as Dr. Holmes in the regard of Englishmen. They have the feeling for him which they had for Charles Lamb, Charles Dickens, and John Leech, in which admiration is somehow blended into and is indistinguish able from affection. Of the thousands who have read Dr. Holmes' productions, and the tens of thousands who have heard them read, there is not one who would not be pleased if he heard of his pleasure, or would not lie grieved to be told authenti cally that lie was in any suffering. No warmer welcome has ever been extended to any American.—The Spectator. Superseding Sixla Water. A sod» fountain proprietor says: "The old-fashioned sizzly soda water is giving way to a lot of new fangled. queer named beverages, brain foods and phosphites. It has become quite the thing to call for something of the sort instead of flavoring. Bromide of potassium, bromide of chloral, bromide and caffine, iron and quinine, quinine and wild cherry and strychnine in solution, are some of the popular doses. They are supposed to have a good effect upon an exhausted brain, one of the symp toms of which is idiocy sufficient to prompt a man to call for such stuff. Ladies too in dulge to a considerable extent, choke off a grimace over the salty mixture and imag ine their system is toned up. My own opinion is that such drugs should be taken only under the direction of a competent physician, but I have to keep them at my fountain or lose my place in the proces sion."—Globe-Democrat. Cnriuuu .Aiit«gru|ili of llr. llolmes. A New York gentleman has a most curious and interesting autograph of Oliver Wendell Holmes. It is a sheet of ordinary blotting paper which the poet kept tacked on his desk while writing "The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table." Whenever a specially striking thought, a happy expression, or a skeleton idea of importance flashed across his mind in reading, conversation, or reflection, he wrote the word on his blotter, drew a circle around it, and amplified it at his leisure in his writing. A careful examina Mon of "The Autocrat" reveals whole pages of charming Holmes talk and wis dom evolved from a single eirele with it* suggestive word. When Emerson, in on« of his essays, exclaims, "O circulât- philo sopher," was l*.e thinking of Olive: Wendell Holmes and his blotter.—St, James' Gazette. Absent-Mindedly but Excitedly. Petroleum is the topic of the office, drawing-room and work shop, and a great part of our people think only of oil, talk oil. and dream oil. Miss Jennie Smith, the railroad evangelist, who has been laboring here, wh ?n leaving the other day. approached at the train Capt. V-, a well-known operator, who was standing on the platform, t jok him by the hand, as is her custom, and asked: "Brother, how are you? Are you on the rock or sand?" The captain absent-mindedly but excitedly replied: "We are two bits in the sand and gushing like blazes."—Pittsburg Press. The Mechanical Protection of Plants. The mechanical protection of plants against insects is secured either by hairs or by something that is obnoxious to them, tis a bitter principle. When Lubbock was studying ants he found the only barrier which would confine them was a line of fur. They couldn't get through that. Na ture uses the same device, and you may notice it especially at this season on the young seed leaves ol plants.—Boston Budget. A Theatre Physician In Paris. There are fourteen physicians connected officially with the National opera in Paris. The theatre physician has his rights and duties. Among bis rights and privileges he enjoys, in the first place, the right of seeing the play for nothing when he is on duty. He has his own stall, which none but. he may occupy. But when a piece is played -H» nights in succession it is no joke to be a theatre physician.—Paris letter. Modern Conveniences In Guatemala. The city of Guatemala contains fiO.OOO in habitants. Last winter, a French opera troupe played a two months' engagement to crowded houses every night. Guate mala has electric lights, telephones, street cars, and good hotels.—Exchange. When Whistler Was in West Point. The eccentric Anglo-American artist, James A. Whistler, now 5 3 years old, in 18.11 was a cadet at West Point and stood at the head of his class in drawing, but he never succeeded in drawing pay as an army officer.- New York World. 1m* THE TRIUMPHANT TRIO !
