Why Is It so many women delight In
gossip, in relating choice bits of scandal,
and hinting knowingly about the short
comings of their acquaintances? Simply
because there is nothing else In the
uncultivated convolutions ot their
brains. Educated women women who
delight in good literature, who devote
part of their leisure to the perusal of
books and periodicals which elevate
their thoughts above the petty gossip
of the neighborhood, can find little
entertainment In tearing reputation to
tatters. Punxsutawnoy Spirit.
The year of 1892 will be the most
noted of any in the annals of time for
Its storms, extreme heat, disasters, on
sea and land, labor troubles, blood
curdling deeds, four political parties
that are seeking to fill the presidential
chair, and political contentions. Not
only for the above reasons, but for tho
fact that some of the old "sleepy towns"
have "rolled over In their beds," so to
speak, and are making an effort to get
awake. Brookville is to have a furni
ture and wagon factory, Lock Haven Is
Indulging in a little "boomlet" and Is to
hove an electrlo street car line. Tho
fire clny near Clinton county's capital
promises to give the town animation
for sometime if it is worked. Indiana is
having a glass plant put up there, and
last week some Pittsburg capitalists
visited Indiana's county seat and were
favorably Impressed with the prospect
of making It a summer resort. Is It
any wonder that this yoar pass down to
posterity as a famous one? Yea, verily,
nol Is the millennium about to dawn,
or does all this come about on account
of the nearness of the planet Mars to us?
One of the essential factors in making
a success of this life is earnestness. That
which does the work is not simply the
piston in the engine, or the shot in the
gun, or the arrow on the bow-string.
It is the steam behind the piston, the
explosive back of the shot, the muscle
in the rear of the arrow. It Is not
enough to possess ability. There
must bo enthusiastio desire to set your
powers In motion. A man's ability may
be great, and yet If their Is not the
earnest, longing ambition to act In the
living present, it will be useless to him.
Because you cannot welld as great
influence and be as useful as other men,
do not sit down and fold your arms and
say because I cannot do great things I
will simply be a drone in the hive of
human possibilities. A "dinky" engine
might refuse to do its work because it
is not us powerful as one of the grout
engines that speed along with a long
train of cars, and yet the "dinky" is
appreciated fur the work it dose. So is
overyone that meets the responsibilities
of lite with an earnest desire to sur
mount nil obstuelos. Thoi-efore, whut
over muy be your sphere in life, be In
earnest. An amiable desire must be
heated up into flaming necessity.

A Boy Kills His Sister.
Brook villc JeftY monliui.
A distressing accident occurred at
West Millville, Clarion county.on Mon
day of last week, by which a boy aged
about 14 years killed his little sister
aged i years. They were playing with
their father's revolver, and while the
weapon was in the boy's hands was
accidentally discharged, the bullet a .'18
caliber missile, striking the little girl
in the abdomen and passing clear
through her laxly. This Is another sad
comment on the folly of allowing revol
vers a place in a house and permitting
children to handle them.

Experiments on Animals.
For seven years I have been making
almost daily experiments upon the in
ternal organs of dead animals in order
to increase my knowledge of compara
tive pathology. The postmortem ex
aminations were made for the most part
at the Lamparter Glue works, in th
suburbs of Lancaster, Pa. Here of
course were the bodies of large numbers
of animals which afforded tne an abun
dant supply of subjects for examination.
1 lie vicinity of the works swarmed with
rats. Many of those, the workmen told
me, sickened and died from time to time,
snd I became curious to know something
about the disease that carried so many
of the rodents off.
I conld find next to nothing about the
rat in books, so the thought growing
npon me thnt the disease so fatal to the
rat might be made dnngerons to the
rat's nearest neighbor, man himself, I
undertook a series of experiments. My
first rat subject was a nlckjne which I
captured In the yard of the glue works
without any exertion. The animal
crawled about, made no effort to escape
from me and when picked up offered no
resistance. Its appearance indicated that
It was dying of general debility. Its
body was greatly emaciated. Its back
was arched and its face bore an expres
sion of distress. It refused food, was
racked with a constant cough and in a
few hours after being captured was
fonnd dead in the comfortable prison in
which I had placed it.
My next subject was a healthier and
more active rat. I caught him only to
mark him and then gave him his free
dom. He came into the yard regularly
for his rations of flesh from various ani
mals, but gradually showed the same
symptoms that marked the condition of
my first subject, and in fourteen days
after capture he, too, was dead. Tne
postmortem examination of these two
cases developed the fact that the lungs
were badly diseased. Tuberculosis had
destroyed the right lung of each and
only a part of the left remained. Dr.

Changea In an Kngllih School.
In 1824 Mr. Milnes Gaskell writes
from Eton that an upper boy "got spurs
and rode some of us (lower boys) over a
leap positively impossible to be leaped
over with a person on your back, and
every time (which is every time) we can
not accomplish it he spnrs us violently,
and my thigh is quite sore with the in
roads made by those dreadful spurs; my
new coat is completely ruined." In the
next year Ashley minor, a son of Lord
Shaftesbury, died in consequence of a
fight which lasted two hours and a quar
ter on the same evening. The quarrel
originated about a seat in the upper
Dr. Eeate spoke about the sad event
to the school three days later; be blamed
the boys for letting the fight go on so
long, but was not to be "seduced into
any namby pamby peace-at-any-prlce
sentimentalism." He said: "Not that I
object to all fighting in itself; on the
contrary, I like to see a boy return a
blow." Such a state of things has for
tunately entirely disappeared; a clergy
man, a bead master, a doctor of divini
ty, however much he might feel that the
meek acceptance of injuries was not the
sign of a keen and generous character,
yet would now hesitate to mark fighting
with his approval before an audience of
boys whom he was bound by statute to
instruct in Christian principles. Na

Not a Nourishing Diet,
An old Scotch servant attached to
the household of the famous British
logician, Sir William Hamilton, was as
proud of his master's fame as if it had
been his own, and, having picked up a
few of Sir William's technical words
and phrases, brought thorn into play on
(very possible occasion.
One day a gentleman who was fond
ot drawing out old John for the amuse
ment of the company said to him, with
sn engaging air:
"I suppose, John, now that you've
lived so long with such a great reasoner
as Sir William, you are quite able to
conduct an argument yourself?"
"Weel, I winna say sae tuuckle as
that," replied the old Scotchman, with
the modesty of true genius, "but if I
canna conduct an airgyinent, I'm think
In I could draw an inference."
"Could you? Let us see, thon? There's
an Eastern proverb, you know, about
the wild ass snuffing up the east wind.
Now what inference would you draw
from that?"
For a moment old John looked non
plussed, as well he might, and then a
gleam of sly humor twinkled in the cor
ner of bis dark gray eye, and he an
swered, with a grim chuckle:
"Aweel, the inference that I wad
draw from that wad be that he might
snuff a lang time before he grew fat!"

roily Saved the Valuables.
We had moved into a newly built
house, which had all the modern im
provements, the electric bell being one
of them.
It was a cold winter's night. Mr. and
Mrs. J. were traveling in Europe and
the servants were all gathered about the
kitchen fire. Polly was also near the
fire, but in the dining room, which was
up stairs.
She used to see our mistress ring the
bell for the servants to enter, and, like
a elever bird, studied on this for a long
Ou this night Polly was all alone,
when suddenly the door opened and
two men entered. The room being
dark they could not see the bird and
begun searching for valuables, for they
were burglars.
Polly now proved hor worth. She put
out her claw and pressed the button of
the electric bell.
It brought the servants to the dining
room, where, after a short struggle, they
secured the burglars, who were about to
make way with much of the valuable
silver in the dining room.
Polly was fed on dainties for some
time as a reward for her valuable as
sistance. Cor. New York Recorder.
