The mischief of voracious novel rend iría; la reailr much more like the mlacliief of dram drinking than appears at Grot sight. It tends to nake all other liternry nourishment Intolerable, Just as dram drinking tends to make oil true food in tolerable, and to supersede food by drink. The voracious novel reader of today, os we have said, rejects Scott, because Scott's novels contain so much good food that it Is not mere story telling. The penuine novel reader detests what ho calls tame stories, stories in which tho interest is not exap-frerated and p-led up ten time as high as tla interests of ordinary lifo. Ho wants always to bo foelinir a thrill of ex citement running through his nerves, al ways to be living u Imagination tlironj-h the concentrated essenco of the perils of a hundred adventurous lives, instead of toiling calmly through the ordinary hopes and foars of one. No state of mind can bo moro unwhole some, because nono is moro calculated to divert the energies from tho sort of rjuiet tanks to which they should bo habitually applied, and to keep them htnstched on the tenter hooks of expectation, waiting for a sort of strain which is novcr lively to occur, and If It did ,cccnr, would cer tainly not find a man's energies n;iy tho better prepared for it for having 'been worn out previously with a long series of imaginary oxcitomonts. ' The habit of dram drinking, it is said, IcaJs o futty degeneration of the heart, I. o.. c.-:ces:;ivo fattening round tho heart, .imd weak action of the heart lit consequeiieo. So. too. tho habit of exciting novel reading leads to fatty degenera tion of the literary mind, I. o., to nn unhealthy and spasmodic action of tho iinannation, and a general wca.'iiM-.in: of tho power of entering thoroughly into the solid interests of real life. fco "far us we know, tho only . efTectivo cure, for this habit of literary dram drink i a euro not always forthcoming is a moral shock of some kind .which esposen, the hollow ocas of all theso unra.1 in -rests, end mokes thorn appear as or .liciul and melo dramatic as they ncviuliy. nto.

"There goes a mining expert," said Col. John Hull of Tucon, as be pointed to a tall dark-eyed girl, abont 26 years old, who was walking rapidly down Market street.

She got to examining the oreas it cauie out of the Tucson mines, and wns poon as good a judge of its value as her brother Jim who worked in one of them. "Pretty soon the miners got an idea that she was a iiood guexaer, and they be gan to bet on her judgement, bhe hit it close every time, and her fame spread. Miners are always superstitious, and they begae to think that to have her around anil get her good opinion would bring good luck. You can just, bet he wa9 treat ed like a queen wherever she went.

She bnjs town lots, place -ites, nnd led.' claims for next to nothing, nnd unloads at a big prolit. "At Pint she didn't get out. of (lie camps non enough, und consequently she has been poor about as ninny times as she has been rich.
