I picked oat Brst of sll two words which seemed con spicuous, namely, "Jasper" and "Borough." Evidently the Dent waa the name of the man connected with the deed, and the second was the district of London known by thst naiLe. I neat picked oa the word "dull," which as an ordinary adjective seemed out of place to such a dying speech, snd I at one remembered the street called "Dull street", which was situated In the borough. There seemed no doubt that the address given waa la Dull street, borough, So tar so good. Klndlng so ether ae tor the words "stone" and "home," I ventured to use thorn as the name nf the residence In Dull street, which made my information read; "Stone house. Dull street, borough." On looking up the street, surely enough I found the corner kouae by that nuinc After many hours' toll, twisting sad turning, I at length got the words put into some aort of shape, and this Is how they rend: "Jasper Whltelaw Stone House Pull street Borouxh hat murdered me tonight foolishly my oldest friend nil my drawings h has stoles plans property I communicated to him the de tails and plans of my new Invention for the dynamo to patent next month I Intended to get Ink or paper cannot move from hero and mark this so in dictionary my blood to Indicate the murderer his asms is I am dying sll Masters goodby II" , . . i . On going over this again I transposed certain words, putting the flint two words, "Jasper Whltelaw," alter the phrase "the murderer is," which made the lines read more Clearly. In the end. after great labor, I arrived at the following, which I submit for th consldera tiea of the authorities: ' - "My oldest friend has murdered m to-night foolishly I communicated to him the details and plans ef aty new Invention tor the dynamo 1 Intended to patent next month; I cannot move from here to get mk or paper, and so msrk this dictionary in my blood to indicate the murderer.

There are many persons who-never seem to think , that pleaturo. should form any part of a child's vacation. Tasks without number are frequently Used for -the 'future Vacation time. Things that can not be done during school seasons, ase put aside to be finished- during vacations , Work (hat can not be undertaken at any other time 1 reserved for this, and when free from lessons there Ore many chiUlren who look forward -only to a dull round of uninteresting labors, with no prospect of amusement to Cheer them. ' When the last day of school come snd others are talking about what "a good time' 'they are going to have, there are always a few heavy-hearted children to whom the word "vacation" means nothing but a new' form of drudgery and the certainty that great many disagreeable things that they have heretofore not been called upon to "do will loom" up in the immediate days to oome. ft . . a ;.., It is a great mistake sot to empha size the vacation season so as to give the little one something pleasant to remember, . . It is a great comfort if, In later . years, when the cares and bur dens of life weigh heavily, to be able to look back npon good times when lessons were pnt away and when prom ised, pleasnre-oteasions that had been looked forward to for a long time were enioyed , with that keen delight that only, the happy childish appetite is able' to appreciate. Heaven : pity those who have no such things to look back to! t Life is robbed pf one of Ha sweetest memories. '- ' ' ; t It ought to be the' special aim" and ob ject of all parents to so manage their affairs that they can give their children amusements and recreations that will last, there all, through the wearisome journey of life. As people grow older they become rctr&bpcctivt, anil when there are bright, sunny-and enter tsipikg ; things, to "remember, royal good times that they used to have. there is a well-spring of contentment ever, ready io be drawn upoi at command. . And these good timesopght to be associated with the parents them selves. It it a pitiable state ef things whea the pleasure of youth bring to mind faces other, than those nnder the, home-influences, when our good times retail oetsld liendshipa and the most delightful remembrances are of day and hours spent under strange roofs. People have bnt little realization of what this mesne' antil they have snf .fered it.

'Tbe one seen from the car showed Lake Ontario, with all it capes, and other shore fmtures, includ ing the trees, 'with remarkable dis tinctness in- the sky, although the real lake. at. nearest shore wat thirty or forty milea away and whtily invisible. The one seen at Buffalo the other day was the entire city of Toron to, 1b .Canada, oa' tha lake, aom sixty mile aw sv. Its steeples, docks and other features were seen, at great dis tance, with wonderful distinctness J detali .Even the steamers on the lake, and a jacht, were distinctly shown the former pouring out the trailing smoke from their smokestacks, and th latter, showing exactly the position oi the sails, could be seen careening be fore the' west wind. - The lake itself waa largely visible. tt must have been a very surprising and impressive exhi bition." ' ' ,""' '"' " " ' - Seen la the sky by the caravan irav slers on the. desert, the mirage- pres ent an appearance of objects reflected in a surface of water; cool lakes, with shady palm trees, mock the hot and thirst-stricken travelers. , The heated earth rarities the lower air faster than it can ascend and escape. The air is denser overhead contrary to the cus tomary experience; and the flatness oi the desert contribute to the duration Of the attractive bnt deceptive appari tion. There must be some real lake, in some cases, as a basis for these report ed exhibitions! The mirage iseaused by th excessive refraction, or bending, of light rays, In penetrating adjacent luyera of air of greatly differing densities, not far above the surface of the earth. , This excessive refrac tion presents, when the lower stra tum of atr is heated by a very 'hot' sun, en. uplifted, distorted or inverted : image of some actual object or scene. Along certain portions of the Italian eoast it sometimes produces tbeexhibi-1 tlon of an inverted ship, up in tha air the real ahlp being distant and invis ible, and, Of course, right side up. These aerial and marine reflections, often strange and .complicated, and known as mirage, "looming," and the Italian "Fata. Morgana, " according to the characteristics they present, are all allied to a general law. The school books have explained the general phe nomenon. It is out of the usual course of things for the lower stratum of air to be rarer than the one above it, but it sometimes' happens. Suppose' the light rays are coming from a distant (and invisible) object, situated in the denser stratum, which in these wonder ful exhibitions lies over, instead of be neath, the rarined stratum as a hill, little above the earth's surface the rays come in a direction nearly parallel to the, Surface, nud meet the... lower, rarer medium at a very obtuse angle. Instead 'of pausing Into that warmei airs the .rays are. reflected back to the denser stratum . , ebova-tlie common , surface of the two, strata acting as a mirror. 1 Let the spectator be rooking, from some eminence, at an object thus situated, like himself, in the denser air, and he will see bjf directly' transmit ted rays;' but rays front it also Will be reflected from the upper surface oi the lower, momheatod air presenting the image Inverted and in a lower posi tion.
