German investigation proves that acid solutions will convert common sawdust into a material firm in texture and so extremely bard as to be impenetrable by either a nail or a gimlet. It is also more impervious to the action of the elements than any other known mate rial used for building purposes, con crete natural stone and ordinary build ing metals not excepted. Besides the above excellent qualities, which of courso will make it rank high in the estimation of contractors and builders, it has another point that will make it worthy of praise when finally adopted t hat of being practically fireproof , speci mens of boards made from it having been subjected to an extraordinary de gree of heat for upward of an hour with out warping or changing its texture in the least. It a ciaimed for it that it will be stronger than wood for joists and gird ers, and, above all, that it can be manu factured at such a slight cost as to bring it into competition with the more com mon building stuffs. St. Louis Repub lic. The Offertory. The offertory occasionally yields its humors. I can see no fun myself in dropping into the plate buttons or pep permint drops or gilded farthings. But these and other such like votive offer ings occasionally come our way. On one occasion a mild hint was given to a dirty looking verger when a small coin was carefully wrapped up in a bit of paper inscribed, '"Fora bath for a prom inent church official." On another occa sion, when the officiating clergyman had been somewhat bungling through a dif ficult litany, a similar piece of paper was marked, "For a singing lesson for the curate." After a somewhat rambling discourse from one of my colleagues, who shall of course be nameless, the church warden told me that a man at the bottom of the church, when he offered him the plate, took out a, sixpence and looked at it rue fully, and then cast it in with the re mark, "Well, you shall have it, old fel low, but it's a deal more than tliaj sermon was worth." Cornhill Magazine. 15. iliiautly Colored Fish. The bottom of the ocean is magnifi cent with its starfish and sea pad; some in rich purple and shedding a soft golden green light, while others send out silver flashes, and the lamp fish car lies on its head at night a golden light. Another fish seems to be decorated with pearls, and it is evidently the fashion there to be brilliant in some way. Even crabs in hot climates seem to set them selves on fire, and when captured and teased they blaze all over with indigna tion. A species of the shark, too, is intense ly brilliant at night, and one that was drawn up shone like a splendid lamp for some hours after it was dead. Natural ists have long been at work on this curious subject, and the source of the illuminating power is supposed to be contained in little sacks or cells in the body of the animal. Harper's Young People. A Cheap Soup. A brilliant Belgian, "realizing the growing popularity of vegetarian diet and the desire to avoid meats as a food," patented the idea of making a soup from water, into which should be put a tea spoonful of Peruvian guano. This de coction, he said, would give strength and possessed remarkable nourishing qualities. lie failed to say, however, whether or not he was a vegetarian. New York News. How to Oil a ltelt.

It is only within the last ten years that ;he great part that dust plays in weather making has come to be properly under-!-to, d. Tiie colors of sunrise and sunset are largely, perhaps mainly due to the presence of invisible dust in the atmos phere. The wind and the temperature of the air are also affected by the dust. Poverty is hard, but debt is horrible. A man might as well have a smoky house and a scolding wife, which are said to be the twoworst evils of our life. ispurgeon. Vitellitw was murdered in his own palace by his own guards, and his dead lody was dragged naked tlirough the streets of Rome and thrown into the Tiber. "Let us remove temptation from the path of youth," as the frog said when he plunged into the water upon seeing a boy pick up a stone. She IVonld Not Pay for th Danr. When a youthfnl admiralty clerk gets cp a ball which "is not a success," and induces a young lady to go to it, ought the j'oung lady's papa to pay for the ticket? Out of this difficult ethical problem there sprang a fend which has carried turmoil, confusion and violence into the usually tranquil neighborhood of the Elsham road, Kensington. The admiralty official already refer red to appears to have cherished the idea that ball tickets which were used ought to be raid for. He accordingly called at the Elsham Road House, where re sided a Mr. Mappin, and asked to see Mrs. Mappin. Ho was received on the doorstep by two young Mappins, who apparently were expecting him, and was informed the lady he desired to se v.-as "not at home." What immediately followed is a mat ter or dispute, but at all events there can be no doubt that the debt collecting clerk speedily found himself hustled down the steps and into the road. As the ball itself had failed, one of the Map pins tried to make up for it by a dance on the pavement, with the clerk as an unwilling partner. He has been bound over to keep the peace, and it is truly deplorable to find so little harmony pre vailing in connection with such a sub ject as dance music. The "light fan tastic toe" should never be employed to kick, even an unwelcome caller down the front steps. London Telegraph. A Substitute for Kissing. To some members of the community it may be a shock to learn that kissing is doomed. Fashion, in the shape of the New York woman, has decided that it is high time to abolish the custom among women, and it is only a matter of time before the humblest and the most gushing among them must yield. For some time past there has been a lack of the indiscriminate embracing in public for which we were once criti cised, but now the fin de siecle woman is carrying the reform into her home. Even in solitude she does not kiss her friend. There is, however, a very pretty sub stitute for the tabooed embrace. Mrs. Manhattan now gives Miss Murray Hill a gentle tap on the shoulder and mur murs, "Consider yourself kissed!" and Miss Murray Hill then trirs thankfully away with the sentiment in her heart, and, what is much more important t her, with her vest and bangs in good order and in the right place. New York World. The Handsomest Lady in Durham Remarked to a friend the other day that she knew Kemp's Balsam for the Throat and Lungs was a superior remedy, as it stopped her cough instantly when other cough remedies had no effect whatever.
