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

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
".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

In "Cracker" cabins in north Georgia,

doors, back and front, stand open from

The common belief is that the French
uro a Celtio race; but, according to M.
..viere, t'u Celt i i not evon t'.ie largest
v! "nont in that mixed ra called tho
i'lvneh. 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. Riviere
asserts, is chicUy to be found in u belt
drawn across 1'ranca from Savoy to
Low lirittany. and he na3 not been
identified at all in the United Kingdom.
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.
