"I don't know what can bo the real' ler with me. Mils Johnson," said I'ro feseor Harry to his housokeeer as she hindrd him his mornlnr coSre. "I think I must be (trolng old." "O. come. Drofessor. you old at forty Ave!" replied Miss Johnson, lauitblng. "What )ou nt Is to get married "(Jet married." reDeated the profes tor absently, as though lh Idea had never occurred to him. "Why. who would want to marry an old fogy tike me?" "Some might." retorted Mt John son, tossing hT head, and for the tin' time the profeiwor wondered why Ml" Johnson, with her strong, capabl. hands and warm heart had never mar rled. Miss Johnson came evi-ry day to at- - tend to th- protestor's needs. He was Instructor In Latin at the college. Miss Kllzabcth Johnson wu Hi. daughter of a fello professor w ho had I died tmpoverlched She was not pr-t ty. but sh as a universal favorite and the a treated as a social tiiual by ever; body In spite of the metila' I work the did. Mitt Johnson might have b.-en thlrty-nte "If ever I got married," muted tht professor, at he wandered In the dl rertlon of Hie town, "I thould want u wife with light brovtu hair, blue eyes. a pleasant but not neceiwarlly bvautl ful face, and of a stature five feet four or five feet tU. She thould be good cook and fond of children, alwayt good-tempered and why bless me. II blushed at he hurried along the street, for It had suddenly occurred to him that he was describing Miss Johnson. "Uut t didn't mean anything, t as ture you." bt eiplalned absently to ntmf f pri,t don't mention It." tald pletunt female voice In bit ear. and It Isn't Hit." the. professor started In surprise, to see that h was looking Into the face of a comely joun womau who carried a baby. "I assure you no harm has been done," she said. "So It ou will kindly hold my little ulrl while I look for It, ever) thing will come out all rUht " ' And she thrust a blinklun bundle Into i bit arms. Protestor Harry had never held u baby In hi life and would have indig nantly declined, but bit arms went out Instinctively, and u moment later h found himself holding the bundle, while the mother disappeared Into the mldtt of the shopping crod and was lost to view almost Immediately, "Now I wonder what It was thut I did," suggested the professor to him self, but there wat no antwer forth coming. It muet have been something dreadful to have merited thla penalty The bundle wat becoming uncommon ly heavy, and, what a worte, the lit tle face suddenly screwed up and a wall of eitraordlnary Intensity came from It. "Mush, hush, baby," Implored the protestor, dandling the tufaiit, "Go to tleep like a good boy I mean girl. Mother will come by and by." Apparently tblt prospect did not act at a soothing Incentive for the baby began to howl louder than ever. A little crowd had formed around the professor and wss regarding him with msnlfest Interest. A small boy Jeered at him. "Ah, take him home," suggested a ribald spectator. "Where, did you get ttr "It Isn't hit," exclaimed a woman with a shopping face, ho stood near the speaker. "He's stolen It," suggested another lady. "Kidnaper." yelled another woman and promptly fainted. "He's lllack Dan, the thousand-dollar child stealer," somebody yelled, and those on the outskirts of the crowd set up a yell of rage and surged forward toward the victim, while those nearest blm, who understood the con ditions of the case, not wishing to' take part la the Impending riot, quickly dis appeared, leaving the professor at the mercy of the hostile mob.

Poison Ivy has long beeu a mystery both to scientists and laymon; why and In what manner It causes the pe culiar rash and Irritating Inflammation have puttied both botanists and phy sicians. At last the reason has been discovered. Doctor Mlraudo of Paris read to the academy of sciences In that city recently the result of his study of the poisonous weed. Poison Ivy contains prusslo acid. This Is found principally In the young leaves and buds; In older leaves thero Is very little of It. In three and one-halt ounces of young leaves there Is about a quarter of a grain of the acid. As In other plants In which prusslo acid Is found, the poisonous substanco does not exist In Its perfect form, but dsvslopes as soon aa the leaves arts braised, a chemical action being set ' op through the union of an- eaaysie '1' with a gleoeetd. ..:.!, life,'. w-toi.
