The man one meets daily at the office, In the store, on the elevated railroad or at the club converses freely after intro duction, and both gives and receives pleasure by daily talks, but he is not invited to visit the home circle, nor does be give such an in vitation until long acquaintance has famili arized each party with the circumstances of of the other's life. In a recent home circle conversation the writer asked the question: "How long and well should one know a person before com- reitting himself to confidential friendshlpr The answers, as was to be expected, were as different as the natures of those who made them. 'I can judge a man tolerably well at tight, said an impetuous- New Englander, not yet familiar with metropolitan ways. "If he has an honest eye and a good face, is not marked with a rummy nose, and talks sensibly, I should not be afraid to ask him to my borne. He might turn out badly some time, and I might be ashamed of having known him, but that cannot be helped. One never knows the whole of anybody's life his tory.' There was an ominous pause after this effusive statement. It was not pleasant to express less generous sentiments, but the countenances of the auditors showed that they couaU not agree with him. AWFULLY TAKKN TS. "You will find that yon cannot go on that rule here," said one who has lived longer in this city. "I used to feel just that way and acted accordingly, but now I make it a rule never to invite an acquaintance to call until I have known him favorably at least three months. If I am introduced to a stranger and like bis appearance, I try to be cordial to him during that time. Not bearing anything against him, or seeing any thing wrong about turn, 1 then give him an invitation. I was awfully taken in once by one of the most charming fellows m the world. He looked like a prince and talked like an angel, but he is in Canada now and a bank down town mourns for him anc several thousand dollars which he stole. Since then have not been hasty in making friends." 'Three months is not nearly long enough." said a bright, chatty lady, the sister of a well known clergyman. Mien (her brother) and I have to meet all sorts of people in our church work, and we always wait a year. Host of our friends did so with us and they were right, judging by our experiences. One of the nicest and daintiest of little women moved into the fiat next to ours soon after brother called here, and I told him I meant to call on her. I didnt go just then because I had to go home and take care of mother during a sicknesa One day after I had got back I happened to pass her door while she was say ing good by to a friend, and I heard more slang words fn one minute than in all my life before. You can guess that 1 decided not to make her acquaintance. " "You were perfectly right in saying that year is not too long," said another ladv, Icking op the conversational thread. When we lived on street we had for near neighbors as nice a looking couple as ever were seen. The man went to his busi ness every morning, and the woman was singing over her work all day long. My hus band thought they were nice, and so did L, but we learned better before long. One night they bad a supper party that began at 10 o'clock and ended at daybreak. Every one must have been drunk, for they sang and shouted so that nobody else in the house could get a wink of sleep. After that we heard them scolding each other every night, and at last something erploded like a cannon cracker between them. Both commenced divorce proceedings, and the wife was turned out of the house because she oouldnt pay her rent and the husband would not." HI & VERY QUXXB WAT. "No doubt all of you are right from the point of view of personal interest" said the unsophisticated New Englander, who has not yet realised that personal interest rules the best of us in an inordinate measure. "You have had bad luck, but most people are good and well disposed. Now, IVe just made some new friends in a very queer way, and I to stick by them until i rind they are not all right. Last night when I was going up the stairs of my boarding house in my usual dum beaded, absent minded style, I turned into the room below mine by mis take. Thinking, of course, that I was in my own room I was dumf onnded at its appear ance, with trunks piled up in the corner and ladies' dresses hanging in the open closet. A low, sweet female voice struck on my ear as stood there arn&zed. 'There, baby,1 it is papa,' and before I could torn her arms were about my neck. Then she saw what had happened and accepted my apology. though not very graciously at first. Ha good fnends now, 1 am glad to say, and laogbed.over the accident this morning." A general comparison of notes was made at the and of this funny story. The conclu sion reached was not perhaps the best, but people will think it a prudent one. AH kinds of people live in this great city. Not only are there good angels with good faces, and bad angels with bad faces, but there are also good men and women whose counte nances would convict them of any crime, and evil disposed wretches who look as if they belonged to heaven rather than oa earth, and who talk as sweetly as if 4but tsr wouldn't melt in their mouth. " Every man and woman rightly limits the list of in timate friends to the rule of congeniality. Wall disposed, decent, law abiding people vary properly avoid those who have not sim ilar virtues, in a large city active and stir ring people meet new acquaintances every day. These ought to be received pleasantly and politely, but may In common fairness be compelled to wait until time has proved their desirability a friends. New York Press. 8trmng tamp Used by the Meat and Soap. Let us suppose that in the spring a white man is traveling with a party of reindeer hunters from the seacoast, where they usu ally live throughout the winter, back inland, where they taped to see a number of rein deer migrating northward in warm spring weather, ouch trips I have made a score of. times, and while, of course, they will differ in essentials, a typical one can easily be chosen from the lot. The first day is not a good one, for the many little hooks and crooks of camping are not working as harmoniously as they will a tittle later on. The early morning of the second or third day finds the little party asleep in a snugly constructed snow house or igloo as the Eskimos call it and as there is a long day's trip ahead, to make a desired hunting spot, it is necessary to rise early. Of course, it has been daylight since about 2 o'clock in the morning, although the sun will not reach the vernal equinox for six weeks or two months, but the Eskimo does not use such early times for his morning work, but rises about 5 or u o'clock to begin the day. The first one to awaken at this hour arouses the good housewife, whose doty it is to start the kitchen fire. She simply puts on her coat and prepares to start the fire directly in front of her in the stone lamp which does the duty of a stove. Thn is an open lamp, very simi lar to a huge clam shell, the flame burning along the whole length of the free edge, or from ten to twenty inches usually. The wicking for this strange lamp is a compact variety of moss, which grows on the rocks, while the oil is that of the seal or walrus. The lamp Is oC stone, a sort of soap stone steatite, as is also the kettle which hangs over it; the latter is a rectangular dish. whose length is about that of the flame of the lamp over which it hangs. Nothing in this thick stone kettle ever boils, but simmers away as long as the fire is kept under it. until the meat in it is cooked in this way, which usually takes about an hour with ten der meats like reindeer, and longer with wal- Doa't XxDeria.sa.

When the meat is eaten, the sonp resulting from its boiling is passed around, and if it is very cold weather, this part is not considered perfect unless it has an inch or two of hot grease swimming on its surface. This, undoubtedly, assists them in resisting the intense cold of the climate With the meat, too, a large amount of fat is devoured during tlie cold winter weather. Lieut. Scbwatka in The Chautauquan.

Physiologists speak of death as occurring through the cessation of tlte action of either the brain or the heart or the longs. But the brain cannot be regarded as an organ absolutely essential to life, however neces sary it may be to its regular and systematic course. The entire organ may be removed from certain kinds of animals, and yet Ufa goes almost as perfectly for a time as though it wire still there to dominate the rest of the body. The heart beats, the lungs respire, the stomach digests and the several glands continue to elaborate the secretions proper to them, and not only all this, but actions are performed which are well calculated to excite astonishment in those who see them for the first time and who have embraced the idea that all intelligence resides in the brain. Thus, for instance, if the brain be entirely removed from the head of a frog and the web between the toes be pinched, the limb is im- inediately withdrawn; if the shoulder be i soratched with a needle the hind foot of the ' sararride is raised to remove the instrurrtent; if the animal is held up by one leg it strug gles; if placed on its back a position to which frogs have a great antipathy it im mediately turns over on its belly; if one foot be held firmly with a pair of forceps the frog endeavors to draw it away; if unsuccessful. it places the other foot against the instru ment and pushes firmly in the effort to re move it; still not succeeding, it writhes the body from side to aide and makes a move ment forward. I have seen a rattlesnake strike after its head was cut off, and a viper has been known to crawl straight for its hole in the wall after suffering use mutilation. Nor are such experiments the only evi dence that we have that life may persist though tlie brain be absent. It sometimes happens that individuals of the human species are born without brains. In one instance of the kind life was present for six months. Though very feeble this being had the faculty of sucking and the several functions of the body seemed to be well performed. Its eyes clearlv perceived the light and during the night it cried if the candle was allowed to go out. After death the cranium was opened and there was found to he an entire absence of the cerebrum. In another case that of a male infant which n'ved eighteen hours, there was found after death no vestige of a brain, nevertheless respiration was estab lished; the pupils contracted to light; bitter juice put into the mouth was immediately rejected and loud noises caused movements of the body. In another case In which the cranium was entirely empty life continued for four days, yet this being opened and shut its eyes, cried, sucked and even ate broth.' William A. Hammond.

Every library has its skeleton fn other words, a collection of improper or immoral books. In the Boston Public library this sortment is hidden away in a series of modest lltw closets, designated as the "Inferno. On these shelves arranged- in suggestive) rows are all such volumes as ought to bring a hlnsh to tee cheek of iiinocence. Tbe restric tions upon their circulation are very rigid Indeed, for It would seem that there are lots of people who are always trying to get hold of something nasty in the literary way. Al most invariably they give it as an excuse for demanding such books that they are going through a course of English or French litera ture and are compelled reluctantly to peruse tbe objectionable worts as a portion of the task before them, ho the attendants are obliged to exercise considerable discretion. If a reader comes up and says he has heard that such and such a book is naughty and that he would like to see it, the volume will probably be given him; bnt if he tries tbe "course of literature" dodge, he is apt to be refused. Tbe applicant for an obiecuooai work is ttsnally asked to fill oat a slip, giving his age and occupation, together with his name, re ference for character and reason why he wants the book. This slip must receive tbe Indorsement of the librarian before the re quest is complied with. "At the bindery" is the ordinary formula employed in such cases. which, being translated, means that yon can not have what you want A book that is marked in the catalogue with a single star is not to be circulated freely, because too costly. A double star indicates that the volume is too rare to be allowed to go oat of tbe library on any account. Throe stars usually signify that the wort is immoral, and only to be seen on application to and by perrniaelon of tbe authorities. Boston Herald. Twa Benles Oar KhsasasUsm. BouGBTOrT.
