The grizzled old uncle took a rod and yellow handkorchiof from his pocket and carefully dusted tho end of the planks before he took hia aeat.

Tho olcments for undorstanding aro thoso: Surrcy has a married sistor living. lot ub say, in Buffalo. Surrcy himsoif Uvcb with hls parenta in ono of tho outlying districts of Boston and at tenda a grammar Bchool thero. About ton doys ago Surroy's siater was at tacked bv meaaloe and has been vory 311 in fact, her mother was quito anx ious about hor and daily roports camo from Buffalo to Boston. It happons that at tho samo timo a emall opidomic meaalcs and of acariot iever nos boon raging in a little diBtrict not far from whoro Surroy livcs. Tho Board Healtb. has boen trying to stamp out tho discaso which oxists in tho district whoro Surrev's school is located. A fow days ago Surroy's toacher rappod to call attention of hor punus, and re- niarked upon the fact that thoro wero somo caacs of measles andscarletfover, and that it was quito important that thoy should not bo communicated in tho school, and concludcd by asking any- ono in whoso family thero was a case oither discaso to riso. Surroy promptly stood on his feet. Tho teaoh- who nappeneu to Know burrey's mother, was quito Burprisedj and asked: " Who in your family is sick?" " My sister." " Havo you a Bistor?" " Oh, yes." " What's tho matter with her?" " MeaBles." " How long has sho been sick?" "Four or II ve days, aud sho'a been out of hor hoad." " Well," said tho teacher, " go right up to Mr. Parker and tell him about tlns." Surroy wont boldly to the room of tho mastor of tho school and knocked. " Woll, what is it?" asked tho mas tor." " Miss Bailey told mo to como and tho ruea- toll you that my siator has sles." How long has sho had tho mea sles?" " Almost a week." " Aro you suro it is tho measles?" " Oh, yes, the doctor Baid so, and she's been delirious." " And do you moan to say that your mother, knowing sho had tho measles, has sent you to school?" " Yes, sir." " Well, you go straight to your room, and whon tho boll rings tako your books and go homo, and don's como back to school for three wooks." " Yes, sir." Surroy returned and reportod to MisB Bailey what Mr. Parker had said, and took his seat. A fow minutes lator ho timidly raiscd his hand. Woll, what is it, Surroy?" "I didn'ttell Mr. Parkor that my sia ter Uves in Buffalo." Tho scholars shoutcd, and Miss Bailey had difficultyinkeepingher own countonanco assho said: " Well, you had bettor go up and tell Mr. Parkor now." Surroy returned and communicated the intelligonco to Mr. Parker, who could not help noticing tho twinklo in Surrey'a oyo, but said to him quito stornly: " Don't try that again. Return to your room." When Surroy roported at homo what bad occurrod ho was romonatrated with, but ho roplicd that ho only did oxaclly what ho was asked to do, and only answored tho questions that wero put to him, and that he had boen told many times not to voluntoer oxplana tions. "Tho "Listenor" supplomonts this talo by anothor of a kid whoso religlous iiiBlruction had boon somowhat neg lected; and who waa a propor subject for homo mlssionary labor: Tho List enor can tell a Btory of a small boy who mot an cmorgoncy with grcat succoss tho othor night.

A White Rcd Squirrel. Dr. Emily G. Hunt, in May St. Nich- olas, dcecribes tho following interesting pet: Somo girl cousins of mino living in New Jereey havo an odd pet. It is a white red squirrel. xou nave all seen red Equirrels chickareea " they call them, from the sounds of their chattcring and acolding. as thoy drop nutahelis on your hoad. or run down a treo trunk by ilts and starts, giving a little "chick" with cach for- ward rush, whilo they watcb you abarply. Our little pet is like one of theso in evory way, except that ho ia so snowy white that thecleanest table-cloth looks dinzy compared to him. Ho was born in a cranberry bog. Some mcn cutting brush there saw two strango little anlmals, one white, tho other cream-colorcd. Thoy caught this white ono by throwing a coat over him, but tho creamy squirrel ran away. When tho captive was brought home all admired him greatly, for ho was, as 3'ou may iniaglne, a very beautiful little creature, with hia long bushy tail aud bright woodland tricks. But thero is really ono strango thing about him; his cyes are not rcd orpink, as are those of most white animals, but they aro as black as any equirrels could be." So my girl cousins call him Boads." Whon an animal belonging to a spe ciea comraonly dark in color is born white instead, it is callcd an "albino." You havo oll seon albino rabbits and rats and mice. Their eyes aro pink. So that Beads is really a most uncom mon fellow, a snowy squirrel with jet black eyes. Albino or not, ho is at any rato a most wiuning little pct, and there is no end to his pretty way3. As a cat and a kitten livo with tho samo family, he has to bo kept in a tquirrel-cage; but he ia let out a long tlme each day. Then Boada is quito happy. He climb3 up the back of the chair and nibblea tho hairof tho person seated ln it, gnaws the flowers in the window-3ill, rushes up the atems of tho callas, and scratches in tho carth until it llies on all sides. He will rub his head and faco and all his body in the earth, until hia clean whilo dress is a sight to behold. Aftor that he hops to the floor, and rubs his faco carefully upon tho carpet. He loves to retire to a corner or un der a piece of furnituro for his toilet, going in gray and coming out white. If you peop and watch him, it is ereat fun, for ho scruba and combs himself with his pawa in the neatest way, washes his faco just as a cat dooa, and then takes hia big tail in his paws and uses it for a towell Ono often hears people wondor why squirrels havo auch big talla. All know that they are use ful as balancing-poles and blankets, and aro charming as ornaments, but not many aro in Bcads's secret of thoir uso fulncsB as towels. Bcos aud a Bear, In tho May numbor of St. Nicholas is tho following account of tho pranks ofa pet bear belonging to tho threo soldlors, who aro caataways on a moun-tain-top in tho South: Itwas Philip who caught tho flrst viow af him well up on tho trunk of tho tallest cheatuut on tho platoau, which, growing In a sholterod placo under tho northwest hlll, had not beon dwarfed and twiBted by tho winds liko its fellpws blgUcr up.

Sharo and Bharo allko, boar and man, was tho unwritton law of Shorman Ter rltory, and so whlle Philip shoutcd for tho ux, ho began to throw clubs at Tumbler, which wero so much larger and moro porsuasivo than tho stinga of tho beoB that tho boar began promptly to back his way down tho trunk of tho troo.
