" Let the boy fish, boat, canoe, swim and tramp thrbhgh the woods on explor ing trips to bis heart's content. Go with him if possible and encourage healthful exercise and observation as much as pos sible, but don't teach him, nor allow him to acquire, unlawful and inhuman tricks. Upon nearly every one of furred or feath ered things seen during June and July depends a family of helpless lives, which may be doomed to the miseries of slow starvation by one thoughtless shot The boy with the firearm sees a bird and says, "Watch me plug him," and if the aim prove true the boy thinks he has done something clever, and most likely his fond father tells him that he has so done. In reality he has broken a law and probably sounded the doom of half a dozen wretched fledglings hidden in a nest near by. Hen will cheerfully give np a handful of dollars for the privilege of drinking in the wondrous melody from the trained throat of a Patti and go into raptures over the sweetness and the elevating influence of perfect musio, yet the same men will blithely murder a poor little feathered Patti and still for ever life and song such as no Patti ever aspired to in fine, destroy what the con centrated brains and skill of the world cannot replace. And for what purpose? Simply to gratify a taste for the shambles, or to show off to prove that an eye can glance along a bit of iron or steel truly enough to insure the planting of a nug get of lead within the limit of a poor, unsuspecting creature's body to kill a beautiful, happy bird. Outing. 1b English Admiral and the Dey. The Moors hold by their beards when they swear in order to give weight to their oath, which after this formality they rarely violate. The length of beard seems to weigh with them more than the stock of brains. Admiral Keppel was sent to Algiers to demand satisfaction for the injuries done to his Britannic majesty's subjects by their corsairs. The dey, enraged at the boldness of the embassador, exclaimed "that he -wondered at the insolence of the English monarch in sending him a message by a foolish, beardless boy." ; ine admiral, somewnat nettled, re plied that if his master had supposed wisdom was to be measured by the length of the beard he would donbtless have sent the dey a he goat. This answer so enraged the dey that he ordered his mutes to attend with the bowstrings, saying that the admiral should pay for his boldness with his life, Nothing daunted by this threat, the em bassador took the dey to- the window, and showing him the English fleet said if it was his pleasure to put him to death there were Englishmen enough in that fleet to make him a glonons fu neral pile. The dey, who wore a long beard, took the hint from the man who had none. Youth's Companion. Legerdemain That Failed to Work. The bright young man who isn't so very young eithor was fortunate enough to secure a sent right in the midst of Deacon Huggum's young ladies' Bible class and by their arch maimers was so far decoyed from his usual staid indiffer ence as to try and make himself agreca- Die. The speaker of the evening pleaded most earnestly the cause of sweet chari ty and made the last remaining quarter ana nickel burn in the scribe s pocket. Wnen the deadly contnbution box be gan its gyrations in his isle, the news paper representative began to chuckle under the mellowing influence of a hap py thought. He would execute a neat little piece of legerdemain with that quarter and 5 cent piece, and while properly impressing his fair neighbors with the larger coin would really drop in the smaller. . He held the quarter daintily between his thumb and finger and pressed the 6-cent piece between his third finger and ms palm. There was a click of a com in the bottom of the box, a rather un usual twist of a large cuff and a bland smile on the reporter's face. A second later the young man started as if he had been shot and turned ex citedly toward the deacon, who was now two seats behind him. He had dropped in the quarter! The deacon mistook the gesture as a sign that the young man had been over looked, and again he thrust the box un der the reporter's nose. What did he do? Just what you would. He put in the nickel. And walked home. Boston Herald. Old Polo. In "The Arabian Nights" we read of a wise sage who cured a great king by a decoction with which he anointed the handle of a stick with which the king was in the habit of playing a game at ball, to the end that when the royal hand perspired in the vigor of the play the open pores might receive the medicament. The translator speaks of this stick as a "golf stick" (sic), but it is plain from the context that the game was played on horseback. It was, in fact, polo. In deed the illustrations of the very same edition show the said king playing the game on horseback. Blackwood's Magazine. He Won't He Expelled. Mouldy Mike By all th' saints, has yer lost yer mind?

"I left my children standing there, exactly therel" It was in one of the " stores in Temple place, and the mother who had lost her two little girls pointed with absolute decision to the place where she was certain she had told them to wait for her while she went to another counter to look at a bargain. A small commotion of inquiry and search at once buzzed through the store. Presently one of the head men stepped to the door and looked up and down the street to see if the lost children had strayed out of doors. 'In front of another store a few doors up the street a small crowd was collect ing about two little girls who were ask ing piteously for their mother. They were still standing in the doorway of the tor exactly where she had left them when she went away down to the other to look up a bargain. And when she was brought unto her own she "remem bered that she had forgotten" where it was she had left them, and added, "I de clare, I don't see how I came to do such a thingP Boston Transcript. ''HtUhtng by Electricity. ' The success which attended the use of the electrio light in fishing off the Cah- r- fornia coast has led to the devising of various improved apparatus for that pur pose. ' One of these consists of a large iron frame interlaced with netting, which can be opened and closed at the will of the operator. An electrio light incased In a lantern is lowered into the net, the eleotricity being furnished by a motor & in the bow of the boat - As the boat moves alonsr the network is thrown open, and the brieht light of the lamp, which ia seen at a great distance in the clear """water, arouses the curiosity of the fish which readily swim Into the trap.

Eulalle Takes to Johnny Cake. ., , , Among the tastes whioh the Princesi l Eulalle has acquired since her arrival in America is a strong one for corn bread. This is what Colonel J. C.

I asked the proprietor f the Arlington the reason ' ' for this, and he said sweet corn was not in season and there was no need to have corn bread on the bill of fare because the princess insisted on it being served at every meal. When the infanta first got to the hotel in Washington all kinds ot bread were placed on the table, and the ' royal guests picked out some corn muf- fins as the taost toothsome of the lot .. Bhe is fond of having them toasted, too, which ia rather unusual with us. The day of her arrival the princess in dining at the Palmer House asked right away for corn mnfftnu. Chicago Times. Curiosities of Glycerin. One of the great advantages of glycer in in its chemical employment is the fact that it neither freezes nor evaporates under any ordinary temperature. No perceptible loss by evaporation has been detected at a temperature less than 200 degrees F., but if heated intensely it decomposes with a smell that few persons find themselves able to endure, It burns with a pale flame, similar to that from alcohol, if heated to about 800 degrees and then ignited. Its non- evaporative qualities make the com pound of much use as a vehicle for hold ing pigments and colors, as in stamping and typewriter ribbons, carbon papers and the like. If the pure glycerine be exposed for a long time to a freezing temperature, it crystallizes with the appearance of sugar candy, but these crystals being once melted it is almost an impossibility to get them again into the congealed state, If a little water be added to the glycer in, no crystallization will take place thoutrh under a sufficient degree of co. the water will separate and form crys tals, amid which the glycerin will re main in its natural state of fluidity. If suddenly subjected to intense cold, pure glycerin will form a gummy mass which cannot be entirely hardened or crystallized. Altogether it is quite a peculiar substance. Good Housekeep ing. Forewarned of Her Child's Death. A few months after my father's death the infant son, who had been pining him self ill for "papa," was lying one night in his mother's arms. On the next morning she said to her sister, "Alf is -going to die." The child had no definite disease, but was wasting away, and it was argued to her that the returning spring would restore the health lost dur ing the winter. "No," was her answer. "He was lying asleep in my arms last night, and William (her husband) came to me and said that he wanted Alf with him, but that I might keep the other two." In vain she was assured that she had been dreaming; that it was quite natural that she should dream about her husband, and that her anxiety for the child had Riven the dream its shape. Nothinir would persuade her that she had not seen her husband or that the in formation he had given her was not true, So it was no matter of surprise to her when in the following March her arms were empty and a waxen form lay life less in the baby's cot. Mrs. Annie Be- sant. Tragedy of Literary Disappointment, An English periodical says disappoint ment in authorship over there sometimes has trairio results. Recently a gentle man committed suicide because he had j had an article rejected, and a confec tioner's assistant shot himself because, though he had written' several books, they were all rejected. The article goes on sagely: "Yet he went on writing to the last, unable to see that he was pro ducing what was not wanted. Nowa days there is a market for what is good in any class of literature, and the writer who cannot secure a publisher may rest assured either that he is not ready for a public appearance, or that he has been denied the gifts with which he fancies himself to be endowed." The Dwarf Palm of Algeria. The dwarf palm, which furnishes con siderable quantities of fiber, grows in great profusion in Algeria and is one of the principal obstacles to the clearing of the land, so thickly does it grow and so difficult to pull up. Its roots, in shape resembling carrots, penetrate into the irround to the depth of a yard or more, and when its stem only is cut it sprouts nut acmin almost immediately. As its name indicates, this palm is very small, and can only attain a certain height when protected, as in the Arab ceme teries, for example. Monde Econom- ique- Saved by a Nickel. At Loneview. Tex., while Jim Vines was fooling with a revolver it went Off, and all that saved his life was a nickel which he had in a pants pocket. The ball struck the coin and glanced down his leg, making a long blue streak, Bomanee of a Substitute. A romantic affair has occurred in the Turkish army. A Bhort time ago the discovery was made quite accidentally in Pristina that a young girl named Hanko had been serving 8$ years under her brother's name, Alt Redscheb, in the Fifteenth regiment there, and had distinguished herself by specially good conduct. The sultan was informed of the unheard of case of a woman hous ing with men for years unveiled. When he learned that the young girl had taken this daring step in order to free hei brother, who was the only support of hie mother, from military service, he be stowed the Chefakat order of the third class upon her and has given her a pen sion of 5 Turkish pounds a month. She was of course sent home at once, and her brother remained free from serving, London Tit-Bits. Decorations at Dinners. Such strides have been made in con fectionery of late that at any special din ner the cakes and bonbons, which help to garnish the table in their little silver dishes, are made of any tint desired and generally either match or are in accord with - the floral decorations.

A Racking Cough Cured by Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Mrs. P. D. Hall, 217 Genessee St., Lockport, N. Y., says : " Over thirty years ago, I remember hearing my father describe the wonder ful curative effects of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. During a recent attack of La Grippe, which assumed the form of a catarrh, soreness of the lungs, accom panied by an aggravating cough, I used various remedies and prescriptions. While some of these medicines partially alleviated the coughing during the day, none of them afforded me any relief from that spasmodic action of the lungs which would seize me the moment I attempted to lie down at night. After ten or twelve such nights, I was Nearly fn Despair, and had about decided to sit up all night in my easy chair, and procure what sleep I could in that way. It then oc curred to me that' I had a bottle of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. I took a spoonful of this preparation in a little water, and was able to lie down without coughing. In a few moments, I fell asleep, and awoke in the morning greatly refreshed and feeling much better. I took a teaspoonful of the Pec toral every night for a week, then grad ually decreased the dose, and in two weeks my cough was cured." Ayer's Cherry Pectoral Prepared by Dr. J. C.
