A pupil In on of tbe well known hoys' schools, being short ef pocket money, conceived a means of replen ishing bla funds by tbe following plan: He wrote to a Jewelry houe In New Tork. where hn had an established credit, asking that a silver cigarette esse selling at 925 be sent to him on approval. 1'jkid Its receipt be arranged a lottery among his chums at tbe school and offered for sal 100 chances at 20 cents each. He sold all tbe ebftnee for a total of $2S. The boy who held tbe successful number that won tbe silver case hap pened to be one wbo did not use cig arettes, and therefore tbe manager of the affair offered to buy tbe case for J5. Tbe winner accepted the offer, as he thereby made a profit of $4.75 cash Instead of having an article of no use f him. whereas the promoter of tbe deal hud t-Q left. The promoter now returned tbe cig arette case to tbe Jeweler and asked that It be credited to bis account This being a frequent occurrence, nothing was tbougbt cf tbe return of the ar ticle. Iiy tbls scheme tbe pockets of tbe yoiibg promoter were replenished by SCO. tbe other boys hsd enjoyed tbeir little game of chance and wero per fectly satisfied with tbe operation, and the business house was likewise satis fied. Yet some people wbo bave beard of ihe transaction are asking. "Is tho young financier open to any criticism for his met bods?"

Ship ley iu an article in tha Edinburgh. Re view: "Tbo passengers and tbe crew of a liner racing over the surface of the Atlantic are apt to Imagine that under tbem is ft vast layer of water of vary ing depth sparsely Inhabited by a ttvr flsu. As a matter of fact, tho whole of this great ocean is teeming with life. If Instead of taking sbip we could take to the water and walk across tbe bed of tho Atlantic to America, starting from tbe shores of western Europe, we should In effect be traveling through a succession of new countries. Not only would tbe surrounding physical condi tions vary as wo advanced, but tlis u ii I ma 1 and plant life would vary In correlation with the altering physical conditions. "Walking farther and farther toward tbe depths of tbe Atlantic, we should soon loe all sight of the ulgae. acd the shallow water tish tl.e plaice and soli;, whiting, skates, dogfish nnd others and cd would give way to the megrim and the hake.

All thc&e Cr.er deposits are derived from the neighboring lui.l and are blown sen ward by oflhure winds or washed down by rrflus ani streu:s and carried out to the sea by rivers.

P.eyond lies the continental slope, a precipice m-re or less abrupt and more or less bifb. descending by steep declines or terraced cliffs until depths of 2.CW fathoms tire reached. The Atlantic, compared with the other great oceans, has an unusually large area of comparatively shallow water" Of its total area C7.5 per cent Is covered by v.ater less thnn l.t')0 fathoms deep: 18 er cent lli between l.0j and fatliocis and 47 per cent between 20 and 3.iO fathoms; tbe remaining To per cri.t Is still deepor. "At the foot of the continental slope lies an illimitable plain of a uniform dull, grayisli buff color, flat and fea tureless as tbe desert, and only d.versl 0ed by an wccaslonnl as yet uncovered rock or wreck or the straight line of a recently laid cable. This plaiu con tinues with scarcely a change In scen ery or In level until we approach tbe greatmId-Atlantlc ridge. As. Bruce has shown, this ridge, which' roughly bisects the Atlantic, extends from Ice land as far south as fifty-three degrees of south latitude, with a slight and quite Inexplicable break Just under tbe equator. Tbe ridge runs almost parallel with tbe eastern contour of North and South America, which. In turn, as the ordinary map will show, roughly cor responds with tbe western contour of Europe and Africa. From time to time the ridge rises above tbe surface of tbe water, as lb the Azores group. St. Paul's rocks. Ascension. Tristan da Canha and dough island. "Having ascended the eastern and descended the western slope of this mid-Atlantic ridge, we should again traverse plains of grayish ooze far more extensive than any level land tract known to geographers, and as we approached the , American coast we should gradually pass through. In re verse order, tbe zones of life traversed wben leaving Europe. On tbe eastern coast of America tbe slope is much more gradual than on the western coast of southern Europe and Africa." STUTTERING. Treatment by Which ths Affliction May Be Overcome. There is no cure for stuttering. Tbls does not mean that no stutterer can be cured far from it but that there is no treatment which Is sure to cure. If a stutterer be taken in childhood, when the atCictlon is first noticed, and care fully treated he can sometimes be cur ed and generally much Improved. Ir. Frank A. Bryuct of New York, writing in the Medical Kecord, says tbe first thing to do is to make sure that there are no obstructions in the tbr at or nose, such as enlarged ton sils or adenoids. Tbe child must be taught to breathe through his noso. deeply ond slowly, as a habit, lie must not be allowed to speak when excited nor when laughing or crying or in the paroxysms of whooping cough. He must never be tickled. All causes of excitement must be removed. Fresh sir. scrupulous cleanliness, plain, nour ishing food, moderate exercise and plenty of sleep In a dark room are essential. Mental treatment Is of great impor tance. Any measures that will Increase mental poise are of Incomparable value. The stutterer must t Impress ed with a desire to overcome what Is only a bad habit. He must be per suaded to study the great art of speak lng correctly. Thus, by careful, pa tient work on the part of his parents, teachers and physicians, will he gradu ally cure himself, or at least so Im prove as to make tbe a miction cease to bo serious.

Many years ago a maid employed by Miss Eundberg. a famous dancer of the Koyal Opera in Stockholm, was given a holiday by ber mistress and set out to take a walk. Passing a shabby little house In tbe poorest section of tbe city sbe beard a child's voice, which seem ed to her wonderfully fresh and beauti ful, and, looking up, sbe saw a little girl sitting near the window singing to a pet kitten. In great excitement she rcshed to ber mistress and told ber of tbe exquisite voire sbe bad beard. Miss Lnndberg was somewhat skep tical, but finally went to tbe bouse and beard tbe aweet song. She. too, was convinced of tbe great natural beauty of the child's voice and reported It to Croellus, the singing master of the opera. Croellus was also somewhat skepti cal at firt, but at Miss Lundberg's re quest be. too, went and, standing on the sidewalk, heard tbe child sing. Enraptured in turn, he told Count Buke. manager of the Royal opera, and arrangements were made by which the little girl sang for tbe count. Sbe was at once taken as a free pupil in the Koyal Opera school and there after received tbe lest Instruction Swe den could give. Tbe child was Jenny Llr.d. tbe famous "Swedish Nightin gale.
