The Blind Htatorlnn.
William Hickling Prescott, who was
born at Salem, Mass, on tbe 4th of
May, 1796, was the son of a prosper
ous lawyer, entered Harvaid oollege in
1811 and graduated in 1814. Eaily in
his college career he had his left eye
blinded by a piece of bread playfully
thrown at him by a fellow student, and
the other eye soon became sympatbet
lcally affected He traveled in Eng
land, France and Italy and then de
voted himself to severe study, but it
was not till the beginning of 182G that
be found the work of his life within
the range of Spanish history Fortu
nately his means were ample, so that
he was able to procure the services of
assistants and to live amid conditions
of comfort. By constant habit he gain
ed the power of carrying a great deal
in his memory, and after he had revolv
ed the whole of a chapter in his mind
lie quickly transferred it to paper by
means of his stylus and an ingenious
writing case especially constructed for
the blind He published his "History of
Ferdinand and Isabella" in 1831% which
carried his name across the ocean to
the old world This was followed by
his "History of the Conquest of Mexi
co" in 1843, and of "Peru" in 1847.
These save him a errant renntatiou
His Last Name.
A gentleman once asked a lad what
was his last name
"Johnny." replied the boy.
"Well, what is your full name?"
"Johnny Brown, sir"

name was Blown, and Johnny wasn't
given to me till I was a month old
A Narrow Escape.
The company had assembled in the
church, but the bridegroom was no
where to be found Finally a mes

had been run over and killed while on

"And just think," she said a month
afterward to a friend, "what a narrow
escape I had from becoming a widow''
A Prank of Memory.

have related them to the same person?
Weighing Common Air.
The weight of air has often been
tested by compressing it in receptacles
by the air pump. That it really has
weight when so compressed is shown
by the fact that the weight of the \es-
sels is increased slightly by filling
them with compressed air and that
such vessels become specifically "light
er" as soon as the air contained in
them is exhausted. Many elaborate
experiments on the weight of air have
proved that the cubic foot weighs 536
grains, or something less than one and
a quarter ounces. The above experi
ment on the weight of air is supposed
to be made at the surface of the earth
with the temperature at 50 degrees
Heated air or air at high elevations is
A Deferred Call.
In a certain town in the county of
Wexford there is a house the door of
which must be raised a little to be
opened, and for this purpose the
hatchet is generally used. One night
lately a knock came to the door, and a
youngster was sent to see who was
"Who is there?" he Inquired.
"Me," said a voice outside.
The youngster, knowing the voice,
shouted back (in such a tone that the
person outside could hear him).
"It's Mrs. Murphy. Get the hatchet!"
Needless to say Mrs Murphy didn't
wait Pearson's Weekly.
The End of Books.
