Ways of the Badger. Of the few animals which now in habit the woods and the hillsides, per haps the badger is the least known to the general public. He is nocturnal, in the first place, and his coloring, be ing in broken tones, does not readily arrest the eye. His head, chin and neck are wliite, with brownish black bands running on either side from the nose over the eyes and ears. His up per parts are light gray sprinkled with black; the lower parts brownish black; his fore feet are long and stout, his limbs muscular, his jaw powerful, and his teeth sharp; in fact, he is well set up as far as these formidable weap ons are concerned. The usual length of the animal is a little over three feet, but in his family, as well as in the human race, there are large and small individuals. Take his general appearance as he jogs along, and a small bear is at once suggested to your mind. Many of his ways, too, are bearlike; he will lie up in the win ter, and eat vegetable as well as animal food. Some other creatures that are supposed to be strictly carnivorous will eat fruit when they can get it. Popu lar Science ilonthly. Too Much Apathy. Couldock's company was once barn storming through Virginia. It was at Petersburg, and the play was "The Chimney Comer." All through the audience sat in distressing silence, neither laughing nor shedding a tear, although "The Chimney Corner" abounds with humor and pathos, and the company then producing it was of great merit for those times. Couldock appeared to pay no attention to the apathy of Ills audience until just at the close of the performance. The con cluding lines of the play are somewhat to" this effect : "You, John, are happy, and so are you, Ellen; so am I, and so are we all. Let us hope that cur friends the public share our happiness.'' But to the surprise of everybody Conldcck fell into a towering passion when ho reached these lines, and in thundering tones he said, "You, John, are happy, and so are yon, Ellen; so ami I. and so are we all except the fools that have been sitting like stoughton bottles in front of the footlights to night!" San Francisco Argonaut. Most Arrivals rJelong: Here. The men who keep the records at the barge office say that at least SO per cent, of the arrivals from Europe repre sent,people who live in this country that is, that not more than 20,000 peo ple during 1800 arrived in New York who did not live here, or who were not returning to their homes. Furthermore it should be noted that New York has become to so great a de gree the port to which transatlantic business tends that not more than 15 per cent, of either immigrants or cabin passengers land at any other port. A few go to Boston or Philadelphia or Baltimore, and a few come in via Que bec and the northern border, but tho figures at New' York really repre sent the volume of passenger traffic. John II. Gould in Scribner's. Meteors In Mexico. In an account of Mexican meteorites 2Ir. L. Fleteher, an English mineralo gist, describes fourteen huge masses of iron wliich have been found within a small section of country.

The Sanchez estate mass weighs 252 pounds, and .the Fort Duncan mass 97 1-4 pounds. The greatest dispersion is sixty-six miles. New York Telegram. Sleeping TJuder the Snow. The case of Mrs. Elizabeth Wood cock, who survived long burial under snow, may be known to many readers. This woman, forty-two years of age, of Impington, a village three miles north of Cambridge, lost her way in return ing heme from market on Saturday evening, Feb. 2, 1799, -and was buried seven feet deep in the snow. In this state she continued eight nights and eight days, when she wa3 dug out alive on Sunday, Feb. 10. She re tained the full possession of her senses all the while she was immured. She died July 24, 1799. Leisure Hours. A Girl's TVay of Walking. The pretty girl is as self conscious in her walk as the self mode man. She goes like one on parade slowly, too, with a peacock's grace putting one tiny, well shod foot in front of the other, as much that you and I may see it as that it may thereby help her some eighteen inches upon her way. And yet it is possible enough that by and by she may be as demure and self un conscious as the little old lady yonder, and like her may strive rather to escape notice with a veil than care to be the cynosure of all men's eyes.
