CRAZED BY HiS LUCK.
?A Drop in Stocka That Blade Sixty-Three 1 housam? Dollar? anil a Lunatic It was a broker** office. Tbe droning announcements of the young man with the chalk; intervals filled with conversation that soon as tsumed anything but a business charac? ter. Would you believe it? The broker and his customers were involved in a labyrinthian argument relative to the nature of the deity, and this was suc* ceeded by abstruse speculations on the g probable consequence of an irresistible force coming in contact with an im? movable mass. It's a fascinating topic?at least we ; found it so?and I cheerfully recom L mend it for trial when conversation flc %b around the cracker box in the corner ' g?*ery or when yo>u ean't get a fourth hand for whist in tho club. The dis? cussion was switched back to the mar kst by an occurrence that partook o! the tragic, an episode that left a srhust ly impression ou me, if not on all. The door opened, and in walked ? man who was langhing and fairly glowing with merriment. His laugh ter was infectious, hu^ I was the only nan who smiled. The others turned uneasily in their chairs, and stared out of the windows and began to read the newspapers. "Good morning, ha! ha! Charley, ha! n*'M giggled the newcomer; "how. huh* ' huh! huh! how's ?. P., ha! ha! thi* morning? ha! ha!" and ho went on In s "mild paroxysm of cachinnation. H ?? "He's struck it lncky," I thought. ? and, as I remarked before, I could not help smiling and feeling glad with him. Not so the broker. With a trou? bled look he took tho joyous man by , the hand, spoke to him in a low tone, and led him out, the latter continuing to bubble and sputter like an over? wrought tea-kettle. Presently the ' broker re-entered, shook his bead, aud sighed. "That poor chap gives me the shiv? ers," he said; "I wish he would keep out of here." Then he went on to ex? plain' to me what was familiar to all his regular visitors. "That 0 man,"" he said, "was a speculator. He had never made much in any deal and was generally on .the losing side. A few years ago he came in just before the opening and put up one thousand dollars, all he had, to sell U. P. It stood at one twonty-four. He left the ?"room* with a kind of desperate air. saying if U. P. rose a point and wiped him out he should never speculate ? again, for the thousand was the last he had. Well, sir, on that dsy TT. P. went down in the most sensational way on record; not an eighth at a time, or by fi jumps of a point, but by ten point? at ? a lick, und when it stopped it was down to sixty. Every point meant one thou? sand dollars for that man. "Toward the close of business be came In. He hadn't been watching the mar? ket during the day, and he couldn't un? derstand it when he looked at the board. We had to get around and ex? plain things to him as if be were a i.-.,child. When 1 finally gave him a check for sixty-three thousand dollars he be? gan to laugh. He laughed when he de? posited the check at his bank, and he hasn't stopped laughing yet." It was comforting to know that thisj unfortunate, turned crazy by good luck; . netted enough by his prosperous ven? ture to keep him and his family in good circumstances during his life.?Chicago . Times.. BALDNESS AND BRAINS. Scarcity of llnlr Not n Sur?? Indication off Iiittdloctual Yfgor. It is commonly believed that absence ? of hair outside a skull indicates the presence of intellect within. Perhaps no one would go so far as to say that cverj' bald beaded man is clever; but ' most people certainly think that clever and learned men are often bald. Evi? dence of this belief abounds in art and .literature, and in the converse of every? day lif8. The typical savant is repre? sented with a cranium like a billiard iball, save for a graceful fringe of snowy , jfcair disposed all&round at the level of ' jdlie ears or thereabouts; while the ,-aian of action, the hero, the ?warrior is allowed, by way of contrast, ? t? keep his hair on as long as he pleases, both in time and space. The ulterior causes of baldness are obscure, but the immediate process is no doubt a* degeneration of the hair bulbs, which is due to failure of nutrition, ...and implies impaired vitality or a loss of vigor. The point needs no argu ? meut, though plenty of medical evi? dence could be brought to support it, if necessary. It is universally recog ' ftized that an abundance of hair gives s. look of youth and vigor, baldness one of age And decay. '" ' This single feature will make a man of seventy appear stronger than many ? a man of. fifty. Everyone will admit this with respect to physical vigor, but . not of mental. Yet the two necessarily I go together to a great extent and this is where the popular mistake comes in. What is vigor? It does not lie in muscular strength, as many may sup? pose, but ? in a sound condition of the whole machine and its several parts, and more particularly of the nervous eenters in the brain, which move, con? trol and regulate all the rest. Loss of vigor means a corresponding impair ? -ment of brain power; and though the " higher centers, the seat of intellect, ?may not suffer obviously at first, they ^eventually do so. Other things being ?equal, the rounder a man is all through "the better instrument he makes for the performance of mental no less than physical work ; and when his hair begins . to go it is a sign that he-is not so sound ?s he used to be or might be. True, "he may have gained in knowledge nod experience, and may so far be a better man intellectually than he was before; . but he is not so good a man as he would be if he had kept bis vigor while ac? quiring his knowledge. Of two men, equal in mental ability, the one who retains the more vigor possesses in a ' corresponding measure the greater in ?tellectual potency, whether it takes -.the form of superior energy in the -present or a more prolonged period of .?activity?that is to say, a green old age. This seems to be the correct view ,on physiological grounds; and surely it iis borne out by experience.?Si James ?Gazette. Ha<l No Use foe It.

For the filling cut up some pieces of lobster into small dice; put them into a saucepan, with a gill of thick white sauce; add a lump of but? ter, a few drops of lemon juice, and season with cayenne\ salt and nutmeg. Simmer gently for a quarter of an hour. AN INDISPENSABLE ADJUNCT. The Necessity of Using Salt with the Food We Kat. The question is often raised to what extent we should make use of salt with our food. In all ordinary cases, at least, the matter may be left to the individual appetite. Any slight excess of salt is easily cared for by the sj'stcm, whilo a craving for a small aznount with the food is, perfectly normal, and under no! circumstances harmful.. \ Indeed, although we take at all times more salt as seasoning than is absor solutely needed in the body, such is tho necessity of its presence that food pro- i pared without salt is hardly to be con? sidered nutritious, Common salt?sodium chloride?is, perhaps, on the whole, one of the most j important inorganic substances in the body; so important in fact, tfran it can be said that there are no tissues or j fluids in the body in which it does not ?eenr. The R.ves"a#e human H*d? cm ' &wm t4gte> to ton ounce** The part which salt pliys in the hu? man economy is in dissolving much of the nutrition which is supplied to the body, and facilitating its absorption and distribution to the tissues. The connection between the action of salt and that of the various tissues and fluids is so intimate, in other words, the presence of salt is so neces? sary to the vitality of the various parts of the bodj*, that life would soon come to an end if it were withdrawn entirely. A substance to which so much influ? ence is ascribed might naturally be supposed to have some virtue' as a medi? cine. Such virtue has at different times been attributed to it by some author i* ties. For example, it was supposed, since the acid in the gastric juice was found to be derived from sodium chloride, that the addition of a greater supply of common salt would be of benefit in cases of indigestion due to a weakened state of the gastric juice. But experi? ment showed that an increased supply of salt taken with'the food was elimi? nated from the system, instead of being used to form the desired digestive acid. On tlie whole, then, we may regard salt as an indispensable adjunct to food, but not as a substance possessing any ipeculiar medicinal properties.? Youth's Companion. TWO v NEW CAPES. The Most Fashionable Things Out for Sam* mer Wear. The most fashionable capes are very short and often built in two or three stories; for instance, a moire founda? tion will have a second cape of finely plaited chiffon spangled at the edge, while the third cape will be of jetted net or old guipure lace, with a full ruche of. ostrich .feather or quilted tulle around the neck. A very dainty and summery cape is made of finely-plaited black chiffon over a second cape of the same mate? rial in glowing cerise, yellow or white. The black cape is caught up with .satin bows on,. the shoulder. A yoke of spangles or net, around which the flounces of chiffon are shirred, makes it very pretty. One of the season's shapes has long stole ends in front, but it is not a favorite style, as ends are said to add age to the figure, which, If true, its fate is settled beyond help. A transparent silk gauze cape con? sists of a double ruffle trimmed with rows.of moire ribbon and mounted on a small yoke. The neck is finished I with a full ruche knot tied with long moire strings, Another cape of moire has wide ends in front, the back being pointed into the waist, and sleeves and j j shoulder irills are of jetted net. A i cape made entirely of lace which is I fulled to a plain yoke is finished with ; fan-shaped, pieces and a bow at the j neck.?Boston Advertiser. ?#ev. Dr. F. A.

S. N., who has been receiving such unusual honors from England, is extremely modest by temperament. After he had finished the manuscript of his remarkable work on "Sea Power," early in the year 1S89, he submitted it to a literary man in New York, making the characteristic remark that it was "a conscientious piece of work." The New York littera? teur found it a good deal more than that, and strongly advocated its pub? lication. It has made Mahan famous. ?Gilbert A'Beckett celebrated his elevation to the office of magistrate at the Greenwich police court by a char? acteristic pun. A gentleman came be? fore him to prefer a charge of robbery with violence, committed in the middle of the night.

Miss Lareom's fame rests chiefly upon her poetry and deeply religious works in prose; but she was a very successful teacher, and spent several useful years in that congenial profession. Miss Ward was one of her pupils at Wheaton, and the acquaintance there begun rip? ened into a congenial friendship which lasted until interrupted by Miss Lar? eom's death.
