13 L.NGLISH SPOR'i M J U i f5.TU.lL About One-Slxili of tho Encllsti l'.-rloill-ral Ara lcvoto:l to Sport. It may give some idea of the place of sport in English life to the sedentary American to say that is diilieult to find an Englishman between 18 and 05, in fair health, and not supported by the rates, who is not a performer at some kind of nporfc or interested in some phase of it. Of the 073 reviews and mngn::ine::j of a nonreligious character printed in England, says the Forum, one in i:i:; i ; h.rcly devoted to sonic form of mU-'if-door iiportor pceupation.

In a word, John Bull loves the fresh air. He is a sportsman, an athlete, a soldier, a sailor, a traveler, a colonist. rather than a student, and all the fig ures boar me out in making the state ment. During those horrible days in the Crimea, these sport-loving "young barbarians" were "all at play" when they were not fighting; racing their ponies, getting up cricket matches, and off shooting such game as there was, One family the Pelhams have hunted the lirocklesby pack of hounds for more than 175 years. THE END SEAT IN THE PEW. It la tho Dace Occupied by the Protector or tho I uiiilly. "It is common enough," said Mr. Gratcbar, according to the New York Sun, "to sec a man sitting in the aisle end of a pew in church get up on the arrival of some other member ot the family, step out into the aisle to let the late comer in and then resume his seat at the end of the pew. It seems to mo that I have road that this custom originated in New England in the early days, when the men all sat by the aisle so that they could seize their guns and get out promptly in case of attack by Indians. We don't have much to fear from Indians nowadays, but the seat by the aisle is still occupied by the head of the family, lie stand, in thenisle while the others pass in, and then calmly takes his place in the end seat, at the head of the line, as a sort of gen eral protector. ".Sometimes in these days (we are so very free from Indians now) the head of the family thinks it is safe for him to stay at home when he has a headache, and then the young son takes his place. 1 imagine that he talks it over with his mother on the way to church, so that it is all understood. When they get to the pew he stands in the aisle while hi.i i.'.ters and his mother pass in. I fancy that his sisters are rather glad when they are all seated and no longer con spicuous, but upon his .mother's face as alio brushes past him into the pew there is a smile of affectionate pride; and then he takes his seat in his father's place and sits there with fine boyish dignity." THEY SHET THI DO' NOW. Georgia CrncUors Actually Discover How to Keep i o (I Out. In "Cracker" cabins in north Georgia, no matter how cold the weather, both doors, back and front, stand open from daylight till dark, the year through. Thi:;, perhaps, is accounted for by the fact that there are no windows in the houses, and the doors are kept open for light. One bitter cold winter's day, says an j'.iange, while hunting for a work man, a northern superintendent of the Georgia Marble company went into o'l'j ot these cabiu:i and found the whole family, blue with cold, huddled over a í jw pine stijks in the fireplace, Every door was open and the icy wind was sweeping through the room tin hindered. liefore proceeding to business the northerner banged to the doors, threw several logs on the coals, and soon had tilings steaming. As they grew comfort able, he remarked: "Now, don't you see how quickly you warm up when you keep the wind out? See what a difference it makes to shut tho doors?" The thawed-out Cracker turned to his wife quite energetically and said: "Wife, dunged if hit un't so! Don't forget it. When hits cold artcr this, le's shot tho do'."

It is probable t'.iat they de rivo much of their artistic faculty from their savage ancestors in the stone ago, who carved quite artistic designs with a Hint burin on bones. The genuine Celt does not appear to be particularly r.rtistio. Tho Auvcrgnats are almost pure Celt, und yet their reputation mainly rests upon their capacities as as cabmen. The true Celt. E.

A case of electricity generated by a plate of false teeth iK'jurred recently in England. A man feeling a severe pain in hij tongue consulted a doctor and dentist, neither of whom could find anything wrong, lie then went to an electrician, who found that his false teeth were fastened to the composition plate with two metals. They wore con nected by wires to a galvanometer, which, as soon as the metals were moistened by the saliva, showed a ur rent, strong enough to cause ulceration and severe pain. Tho plato was cov ered with an insulating varnish, which p-:t an end to the trouble. Have YOU KM Coin's Financial School?
