It may bo said that the little word my" placed before the word "dear" has a significance of its own. When used between the ladies thus, "My dear Mrs. A.," it is to devote "an extra amount of cordiality and friendliness, and again when a gentleman so writes to a lady of his acquaintance it has the same reading. On the other hand, "My dear Mr. R" is seldom or never writ ten by ladies to their men acquaintances, "Dear Mr. B." being considered suffi ciently affectionate. Elderly ladies, however, are outside of this rule and write "My dear Mr. B." to men whom they have known as boys. Philadel phia .North American. 'SWALLOWED A NEEDLE AND MED.

IE I i SAN FRANCISCO, CAIj, TO WARD OFF BAD LUCK. Tblncs Men Carry in the Belief They Are Potent Charms, It would astonish you to know the Dumber of persons in this State "who are not superstitious, but who do be lieve In signs." While returning from Western Kentucky last week I sat talk ing with a party of seven gentlemen in the smoking compartment of a Pull man car, when one of them pulled from his pocket a "graveyard rabbit's foot," which, he said, had always brought him good luck. Another of the gentlemen exhibited the feather of an old gray goose, says the Louisville Post, which had been given him by a negro charm seller in the Purchase. The owner said he knew the tiling was a. mere trifle, but he wouldn't part with it for any amount of money. A third member of the par ty had an old steel pen, which had been used 13' the Governor of a Southern State In writing the pardon of a con demned man. This non-believer In "strange signs" said he prized the omen higher than anything he possessed, as he had suc ceeded ever since he got It The sleep ing car conductor carried in his pistol pocket an Irish potato, shriveled to one third Its former size, which "never failed on a rheumatism case." A fifth gentleman had this to say: "Fellows, I'm no believer In those meaningless emblems, but I can't help feeling badly if I fail to see the new moon over 013- right shoulder." The only two members of the party who had not spoken left the car, smil ing at the -"vapid follies" they, too, were doubtless believers in if they had only expressed themselves. , Liord Major's Coach. In the matter of the state coach of London's Lord Mayor, which Is to be refurbished at a cost of $1,175, It may not be opportune to state that its origin al costl40 years ago was $5,325. Toward this each junior Alderman made a per sonal subscription of $300; and on be ing sworn each subsequent Alderman contributed a like sum for purposes of repair, while each Lord Mayor added $500 to the fund. After a few 3'ears the annual bill for repairs exceeded $1,500, and the surplus over and above a fixed Mayoral tax of $500 was re funded to the Lord Mayor for the time being. Twenty years after its construc tion repairs In the amount of $1,075 were again necessary; while early in the present century the average ex pense during seven 3'ears was $575. As was the case with her Majesty's state coach, the paintings for the coach of the chief magistrate of London were done by Cipriani. Learning Latin.

In New Zealand an eight-hour day, or to be more exact, a forty-eight-hour week, Is - compulsory for all women working in mills and workshops, and all children under 18. They are not al lowed to work overtime for more than twenty days a year, and then they are limited to three hours extra a day, and the written permission of an Inspector must be obtained. In the case of adult men the Government does not Interfere with their hours of labor, save in ex ceptional cases, but the eight-hour day is general, thougli not universal, throughout the colony. In Wellington the average wage of adults In engineer ing works is 2 10s 3d a week; molders average 2 13s Sd, patternmakers 3 2s, and adults In electrical engineering works 3 2s 4d. A Little Mistake. One of the most dreadful (social) mis takes ever committed was caused by an order in combination with an unfortu nate resemblance. A friend of mine had a colonial acquaintance who was very like a certain eminent diplomatist, and plumed himself upon It. My friend met him one evening at a reception with ever so large a star on his breast "Oh, come, .Tack, this won't do. I don't be lieve there are orders of that size In the other hemisphere. Where did you get It from?" The much decorated one Lsmiled sweetly on him, and replied in excellent English: "I received it from my sovereign, sir; I think you are In some error.

So this little baby was able to silence guns, raise a blockade, and make friends of two officers of opposing armies. Those Long Names.

Detroit Free Presa BONES OF GIANT INDIANS. Prehistoric Man Seven Feet Tall Who Once Lived in What la Maryland. There has been received at the Mary land Academy of Sciences the skeleton of an Indian seven feet tall, says the Baltimore American. It was discovered near Antietam recently. There are now skeletons of three powerful Indians at the academy who at one time in their wildness roamed over the State of Maryland armed with such instruments as nature gave them or that their limited skill taught them to make. Two of these skeletons be longed to Individuals evidently of gi gantic size. The vertebrae and bones of the legs are nearly as thick as those of a horse, and the length of the long bones is exceptional. The skulls are of fine proportions, ample, and with walls of moderate thickness, but of great strength, and stiffened behind by a powerful occipital ridge. The curves of the forehead are moderate and not retreating, suggest ing intelligence and connected with jaws of moderate development Tradition has handed down the state men that between the years 1730 and 1736 the Catawbas overtook a band of Delawares at the mouth of the Antie tam, and in the battle that ensued the Delawares were completely annihi ' lated. So the tradition jroes, but ac cording to Dr. Philip It. ruler, presi- 1 dent of the Maryland Academy of ScI enc-s, a etm-i ;' :- .. : - ' cality has failed to establish evidences or a battle at this point, aitnougn nu merous spear and arrow beads have been taken from the soil there. It is of great Interest, liowever, to notice that the locality was. ar an ear lier date, before the coining of the white man, occupied as a village site by Indians of great stature, some of them six and a half to seven feet In height. The manner of burial was like this: The flesh was cleaned from the bones, some of which were then charred. The small bones of the face and neck were packed in the cavity of the skull, and a round hole, about two and a half feet wide, was dug in the ground, in which the skeleton was buried and carefully packed with clay. In the grave was also placed pottery, a tomahawk and other weapons belonging to the In dians. The earth was heaped up into a small, oblong mound, along which other sim ilar mounds extended for many feet The overflows of a neighboring river at this point had almost destroyed the burial area, so that only three of these small elevations were recognizable at the time of the excavation. DOG OPENED FATHER'S EYES. Experience of a Man Who Had Sev eral Growinir Daughters. "It is quite interesting to bjrthe fath er of several growing girls," said one of a group of family men in the smoker of a suburban car. "Yes," answered another one with a shrug of his shoulders, "especially when they all want new gowns at the same time." "I wasn't thinking of that," said the first sneaker, "but of a war thoy have of taking thf w ind out of your own sails. It never occurred to me until the other morning that it was not to see mo 1 that young fellows kept dropping in to play cards and make themselves agree able. I tumbled at last, but It was my hunting dog Jack that opened my eyes." "Your hunting dog?" echoed the crowd. "Yes. I had heard of nearly every kind of a plan for the communication of lovers except a dog. In this case Jack became Cupid's messenger. Those boj'S borrowed the dog ostensibly to go hunting, but I have learned since that they didn't know a gun from a hoe handle. They tied Jack up over night and as soon as he got out in the morn ing he made a bee line for home. If I hadn't seen the corner of a paper stick ing from under his collar I should never have suspected the eagerness with which those girls tried to head him off from me." "He had a letter for them?" "No, just a note asking the privilege of seeing dear Miss Kate or Miss Sue in the park for a walk and a chat! Nice idea. Employing the dog of the family In a clandestine correspondence. I an swered that note myself and the two girls haven't spoken to me since. Jack is tied up and I'm watching the cat now, for I have no doubt they'll find a way to circumvent me." Chicago Times-Herald. Trials of a Lecturer. Under the title of "Some Reminis cences of a Lecturer," Dr. Andrew Wilson, tbe well-known writer on popu lar science, gives many amusing anec dotes of lecturers and their audiences. Most Irritating to the former Is a pro vincial habit of turning heads "en masse," when a door creaks, to ascer tain who is coming in. Dr. Wilson tells a story of a lecturer who, when any one happened to come in late in the usual clumsy fashion, was in the babh of stopping short and watching the in truder :o his Svat, gtnr.illy with the f. of m.-'iiiiifc liin- i hc'pish aud ' - ju.v.- ti. U t .1 1 . i f.; ' ..- v.-r one day, while he was lecturing In a provincial town, that he was Interrupt ed by a gentleman coming in late with a particularly irritating pair of creak ing boots. The lecturer stopped, ac cording to his custom, and stared at the intruder, who seemed to be not In the least conscious that all eyes were upon him. At length, getting out of pa tience, the lecturer, in an icy tone, said: "I am waiting for you, sir." Appar ently quite unmoved, the offender spent a few seconds in arranging his coat in his chair. Then, sitting down, he turn ed to the lecturer with a charming smile, and said: "Now, sir, I am ready if you are. Please proceed!" Gold in Ducks' Gizzards. A Sacramento man happened to ex amine the gizzards of a brace of mal lard ducks, which he bought a few days ago, and found in them gold nuggets to the value of $1.50 each. As the ducks cost him only 40 cents, he cleared $2.G0 by the operation. The general impres sion Is that the ducks must have picked up the gold in the far north. Listen to any man talk five minutes, and you will hear him say: "It waa just awful." That's the kind of a time men have all the time.

Russia's IMyiitary Strength. Following the visit of their president to Russia the French papers have been Instructing their readers on the forces possessed by that country. The Army and Navy Gazette of London extracts from one of the most widely read of these some Interesting particulars. The Russian army, founded by a ukase of 1870 on universal liability to service, can draw upon annual recruiting lists of something like 750,000 In Europe and 140,000 in Asia, but in time of peace many cases of exemption are admitted, and only about a quarter of the above numbers, or some 220,000 In all, are called out. The liability is for twenty 3'ears' service, commencing at the age of 21. Of this period five years have to be passed with the colors, but this may be reduced to four for men of better education than the average, and even to three and two for young men joining direct from the secondary and supe rior schools.

"Talk about curing people of bad habits, one of the funniest cases I ever knew occurred on the south side some years ago," said Detective Thomas Mc Quaide. "There was an old fellow over there v-ho would insist on fussing with his wife, who would invariably give him the worst of it. Then he would run up stairs and hang out of the second story window, holding to the ledge, shouting like wildfire that he was going to drop and kill himself. Of course the wife would relent and set up a noise that would bring out the neighbors for blocks, and the man would be pulled in the window by friends. "This got to be coming too frequently. and some of tbe boys who lived near, and who had loosened several joints in their spines at different times pulling him in, decided to stop it One fine day it came again. The old fellow hung out of the window, shouting that he would surely jump and end it all; the wifa came rushing into the street in hysterics, and the neighbors ran as before to pull him up. The first man who got there hit the man's fingers with a stick, mak ing him loosen his hold, and, to the horror of all, he dronned to the hard pavement with a howl that was pitifol. He was not badly hurt, but it cured him of that bad habit." Pittsburg Dis patch. 1 I'!tc .lug Outlook. In.- ' ..: -'jit Ki- . i i ..." - .v i - t'iiv. . playmate.
