BAKER & CO., Dorchester, Mass The deaf mute is by no means the only person who uses his fingers and hands as a medium of conversation. Among Orientals and many European nations, especially those- of the Latin race, gestures form an important part in the transmission of ideas and infor mation, the story going that the proceedings in an Arabian court of justice are often transacted without the utterance of a single word. - I A peculiar instance of the set use of ges tures is related in an old volume of Once a Week. It seems that a Turkish mail steamer proceeding from Constantinople to Oavalla lost her way, although the trip was taken in full daylight, and notwithstanding that a number of naval officers were on board. These Osmanti officers were noticed strug gling with a chart in the saloon,and every now and then one of them would rush up to the deck only to return without a word, but with the same unvarying gesture. The riht hand was held with the fingers pointing upward. as if to raise a plate flat on their tips, and raised to the level of the temple, a short turn being given to the wrist as though to set the plate spinning. The gesture maut per plexity, or in plain words that they bad lost their wav. Had the officers in this ludicrous predicament been Amer ican or English, one would have shrugged his shoulders, a second would have scratched his poll, a third rubbed his forehead, and so on. Here each beferaed gentleman made the same gesture, repeated, in fact, a national sirn. The writer of the article next morning asked several of the same officers what had become of a small gunboat that had been bearing them company. Every one replied with a short hatchet movement of the right hand, gradually increasing the length of the chop. This meant that the boat had gone awav, and the same gesture, it was found, was repeated throughout Turkey whenever itwasnisht-d to intimate that some one or something had dejiartetL AMONG ORIENTAL NATIONS. Amon nearly all Oriental nations the hands crossed over the breast is an unfailing gesture to indicate bujuhty or subservience, while the finger placed horizontally to the temple mid held there for a brief space means Do you understandT' when put in the form of a question, or the percentiou or suspicion of a hidden meaning, or tho detec tion or appreciation of some secret design w hen used as a remark in somoquy. South Italy is the true home of the gesture, manyof them having directly opposite mean ings to those with which we are accustomed to invest tbetn. losbaketne ueaa. tor instance. both there and in Turkey, is not taken as a negative, but means '! don't understand What do yon wantT "No" in Italy is ex pressed by elevating the chin, protrudinj lower lip a muo and scraping tne under sidi of tho chin with the tips of the right hand fingers, holding the knuckles outward and the flnjrers slightly bent. Death is expressed, in southern Italy by making the sign of the cross with the first two fingers of the right baud held together upright before the face, that being the final action of the priest when administering the last sacrament or extreme unction to the moribund. The same two fingers held in the same position without the sitn of the cross the gesture that is used bv the priests of the Catholic faith to accompany the Pax Vobis cum. and means the same thing, even when not accompanied by words. A gesture of very rfrtfemnt .ngrmirauun u that of hetdtog up "the first and little fingers with the rest closed. This is used alike to exorcise the power of the evil spirit or the evil eye and to cast an unholy charm upon an enemy. In this country we beckon with the hand or finger up: in South Italy that is a saluation, and the fingers in beckoning are held down and moved quickly toward the body. The command to "go" is given by the hand held in the same position, that is, with the lingers perpendicular to the ground and shaken from the wrist in the direction which the party is commanded to take. With us, as of course is known by the reader, the arm is held out perpendicularly and the index finger pointed in that direction. OTHEH SIGNIFICANT GESTlTtKS. The gesture signifying '"hunger," or "I am hungry," or "let us eat," is to extend the thumb and the first finger, keeping the others closed over the mouth and giving the wrist a slight rotary motion, "Today" is Indicated by closing all the flngsrs of the right band except the index, then pointing downward. making a slight but rapid movement of the hand from the wrist up and down. J. be ges ture signifying "to-morrow" is the same, ex cept that the motion is m ado. from the elbow. Gestures are not unknown to the Anglo- Saxon race, and we bave two or three that are very expressive. To put the thumb to the nose for instance, with all the fingers ex tended, means contempt and derision, and is go generally accepted as meaning this very emphatically that the person employing it takes care, us a rule, to make it behind the back of the person insulted. Among Ameri can school children there is a gesture made bv passing the forefinger of the right band quickly over that of the left, which means. Fie, for shame r the person so shamed being pointed at by tho index finger in repose. The school children of San Francisco occasionally emplov a gesture which is of French origin. The thumb of the right hand is lifted to the month with the ball pointing outward, and the nail drawn forward from the teeth with a slight click. It means, "I don't care any more for you," or "Our friendship is broken." This is precisely the same gesture used by the French grisette to indicate much the same thing. There is a gesture that is quite common among Hebrew tradesmen of tbe lower class that has also received stage notoriety. It is that of throwing up the right hand on a level with the head with the fingers extended and the palms in, with a waving motion from tbe wrist. It means contempt, while when both bands are so lifted and waved the contempt is changed to denunciation. An other gesture of contempt, but used only by Christians, is that of laying tbe forefinger beside the nose, although this sometimes is used to indicate a cunning appreciation of a trick or vulgar smanuess. Sau Francisco Chronicle. Be Isn't Dead Yet. There was a time in the history of this country when one man or woman either could write to another one, mail the letter without postage, and thus compel the re ceiver to pay tbe postage. The man who used to Indulge in that sort of fun isn't dead, as you may have supposed. He is living. He cant send you a tetter, but ne can send yon a newspaper without marking the article in which you are interested, so that you waste an hour of your valuable time in look ing up something which you suppose is there. That is what makes you whistle "Johnny, Get Tour Gun.' Chicago SlaiL A Quiet Uttle Woman with Sympathetic Wayi Patient' Peculiarities. I once knew quite well one of these nurses. She was a quiet little woman, with the quick est observation and most sympathetic and persuasive ways with her patients. 1 asked ber once if the sight of continual suffering and death in the hospital ever had a tendency to harden or create indifference in the nurses. She replied that with her it was exactly the reverse, and told many interesting and some very touching stories of her experience in the hospital. Hhe would never wear her cap. "It gives such a hospital air to a sick room," she said, "and makes the patient think, 'Oh, mercy, am I so badly off as that? " A high crowned nurse's cap certainly does give a hushed and solemn appearance to a house. Ve are going to have such nice times to gether and be such good friends," she said. coaxingly to a feverish little boy who opened his eyes and looked doubtfully at the strange face bending over him. I never saw such good boy !" she said to the doctor contin ually in her little patient's bearing. Praise does so much more good at such times than "reasoning." There is nothing that will close the teeth and turn the back of patient quicker than the words, "It is bet ter for vou." Tiptoeing when passing, mix ing medicines with the back turned to the bed; anything that has a mysterious air is aggravating to a person lying helpless in bed. e sometimes realize bow invalids must pon der and worry over some little thing that has happened, or some ridiculous idea that has come into their heads, and stays there for davs. I once knew a little girl of 10 or 11 years old who was recovering from a fever, and during tbe long hours when she lay quiet, "gaining strength,' used to wonder whether if she were stretcned out sne would be longer than a window sill opposite her bed, until one day, when she was left alone for a moment, she slipped outof bed and crawled feebly along to the window, where she stretched herself out on the floor and found that aha went far beyond the window sill. She reached the bed again with the help of some chairs, and went calmly to sleep. ith the nurses as with anything else an unsatisfactory one is in the way and a general nuisance; but the other kind is a treasure, and a gratefnl family has a peculiar admira tion and affection for her ever afterward. Nurses seem to have lived through so much, and bave often a quietly important way about them that comes from having bad aniion people hanging upon their words and looks. hen tacy ray, "I once had a case," it hr.s tho same interest for us tliat "Once upon a time"1 used to have. Even a nurse's watcn h:is something of an individuality. It has marked off so many "changes,'' and has ticked solemnly through anxious nights in stead of drowsing away under healthv pil lows.

Our first nipht's experi ence ns not altogether encouraging; the house was pretentious in appearance, and tbe room of honor, in which oSinal and wealthy men have feasted and slf pt for many years, was delegated to us. The unpretentious rooms on either side of the narrow but very long court, leading straight up from the street part kitchen and dining courts to our room, were filled at an early hour by poorer travelers. Tht? court itself wan crowded with chairs and baggage, whilo half naked coolies were running hither and thither before sex tUng to a lath and the opium pipe. Unclean water was dashed right and lett from the walks along the front of tho rooms into tle center of tbe stone paved court. Everything was in commotion as we ar rived, and a few minute later tb regular disorder grew into a mob, which continued until our faint tallow dip expired. Travel era were hustling each o'.ber t get the best rcoms; cool.es threw down their burdens anywhere fv the moment, t down at tbe tables, dr w forth their old paim fans, and sipped wretched tea until thev recovered snmVient strength to take their packs inside. Then followed ablutions from tubs ail alone the stone court between tue guest rooms. Hot water was in demand along the whole line, and half naked waiters rushed in and around the naked phalanx bearing pails of steaming water. Orher waiters were running to guests with tea cups and large tea kettles with long noses. One traveler after another settled to his board bed in the windowless rooms the stenches of which are unbearable to a foreigner. The coolies, ten or more, crowded into nxims barely larga enough to give them space for their mats, smoked opium and chatted until midnight, while the crowd from the street pressed into everv available corner to watch the queer motions of tneir illustrious guests.

The pleasure which emnesof a novel should be physical. It should put tbe reader in a state of tension sufficient to cause an evoca tion of fancies which without that influence would decline to appear; The author who affects his reader as an eosv chair does mav be comforting as easr chairs are, but there conies on hour when he is relegated to tbe garret. Tho first dnry of a novelist is to irri tate the reader. Tbe aecond duty is to be able to bone tbe dictionary as readily as a cbef bones a bh-d. The third duty is to have emotions, and to be so prompt in detaining them tnat the reader shares their effect.
