Snoberly's French.
Young Snoberly is very anxious to
create thc impression that he is "a
don" at French. A few evenings ago.
at ihe club-room, he took a French
comic paper, and for hali an hour he
pretended to bc absorbed in its con?
tents. Every once in a while he proulf'
smile feebly, as ii he had been carried
away by thc jokes, and say audibly.
"Bon. tres bon."
There were several gentlemen at thc
adjoining table who had been notic?
ing Snoberly's antics. At last one of
them said,?
"See that Snoberly over there pre?
tending to read that French paper? 1
am certain that he docs not understand
French. He is just doing that to im?
press thc people with his knowledge
as a linguist."
"I suppose bc must understand
"i'll bet a bottle of wine that bc
doesn't, and I'll prove it."
"I'll take thc bet."
Thc gentleman who had made thc
bet walked quietly over to Snoberly
and said.?
"Monsieur, qu'elle licure cst il?"
(What o'clock is it, sir?")
Young Snoberly smiled a Parisian
smile, and gracefully handed over the

The girls in a large department store,
says Frank Leslie's, are, as a rule,
carefully watched not only in thc store,
but out of it. The buyer of each de?
partment knows pretty well thc habits
ol' his sales ladies; knows how much it
costs them to live and how they spend
their evenings. It is easy for him to
get the information not merely through
?he store detective, but in many other
The buyer is. as a rule, a tolerant
person, who cares only for two things
?namely, that the girls "deliver the
goods"?i. e., that they make big
"books"?and that they appear respect?
able. If they stay out so late at night
that they do not reach thc store
promptly in the morning they may be
discharged, transferred from one de?
partment to another or merely not
risc in the way of salary, depending on
thc degree ot their misdemeanor. If
thc girl's book is unsatisfactory, she
is simply discharged or transferred, and
no reason is given, but if she ia wisc
she knows thc reason why.
If, on the other hand, the girl is a
good seller the buyer will excuse a i
great deal in thc way of irregularity
of habits. As long as a girl sticks
closely to business she is allowed a
great deal of freedom, but when her
"book" begins to suffer it is time for
her to "look out."
His Forte.
The seven-year-old pride of the fam?
ily had concluded his recitation of The
Hoy Stood on the. Burning Deck, and
thc fond mother, turning with dignified
complacency to thc unnerved visitor,
"And I have been assured by really
eminent judges. Mr. Marterdum, that
he closely approaches Sir Henry Irv?

that great actor's offensive manner?
"I am not surprised to hear it!" as?
sented the victimized one, with a strain?
ed smile.
"Mabel, also," continued the matron,
blandly indicating a six-year-old mite
of flaxen-haired precocity, "plays ex?

manner suggestive of academy honors

have their fortes, you see! In fact,
most people have, when you come to
think of it. What is your forte, Mr.
"Mine, madam?" gasped the wretched
listener. "Minc? Oh, I?I run!"
And he suited thc action to thc word.
Shelley Liked Bread.
The poet Shelley was very simple in
his tastes and found his chief pleasure
in long, solitary rambles. Bread be?
came his chief sustenance when his
regimen attained to that austerity
which afterward distinguished it. Ile
could have lived on bread alone with?
out repining.
"Do you know," he said one day to
a friend, with much surprise, "that Mr.
G. docs not like bread? Did you ever
know a person who disliked bread?"
His friend explained to him that Mr. G.
probably had no objection to bread in
moderate quantity at a proper time
and with the usual adjuncts and was
only unwilling to devour several pounds
of dry bread at a meal.
Shelley had no such objection; his
pockets were generally well stored with
bread. Sometimes he* atc with his
bread thc common raisins which he
bought at small grocers' shops.
Toilet of the Caf.
Cats, large and small, make the most
careful toilet of any class of animals
excepting some of the opossums. The
lions and tigers wash themselves in ex?
actly the same inaner as the cat, wet?
ting thc dark, rubbcrlikc ball of thc
forefoot and inner toe and passing it
over the face and behind the ears. The
foot is thus at thc same time a face
sponge and brush, and thc rough ton?
gue combs the rest of the body.
Prayer of the Convert.
A South Sea islander, at the close
of a religious meeting, offered the fol?
lowing prayer: "O God, we are about
to go to our respective homes. Let
not the words we have heard be like
the fine clothes we wear, soon to be
taken off and folded up in a box till
another Sabbath comes round. Rath'
er, let Thy truth be like the tattoo on
our bodies, ineffaceable till death."

Powerful Music.
When the big organ commenced to ?
play in the Sydney Town Hall the
vibration caused by its 42-foot open
diapason pipes broke several windows
and brought down a few hundred?
weight of plaster from the roof. The
other day some member of a Mew
York choir had a rehearsal. They
sang their fortissimo passages witb
such vigor that tho ceiling collapsed
upon their heads.
School Music and Mad Cats.
A ladies' school of music in a sub?

during tho course of the past year,
and each has gone raving mad, ac?

be ear-torturing in the extreme. The
school now owns a deaf cat, which

remedy. I said when first
interviewed that if I bad a

or kidney trouble I wonk]
unhesitatingly advise them
to take Donn's Kidney

severe attacks of back

Sn.nmary of Lessons.
"Lesson I." Topic: Israel demanding S
king. Samuel was growing old; there wag
no one to take his place; other nations
had kings; Israel wanted to be like the na?
tions around them: the elders came to
Samuel and asked that they might have a
king; thc request displeased Samuel: he
took the matter to the Lord; thc Lord
said, Hearken unto the voice of the people;
they had not only rejected Samuel, but
they had rejected thc Lord; the Lord told
Samuel to protest solemnly and show what
a king would expect of them.
II. Topic: Israel choosing a king, haul
goes to Samuel seeking information; the
Lord told Samuel to anoint Saul to be
king; Samuel invites Saul to dine with
him; afterwards he anoints Saul; Samuel
calls the people together to Mizpeh; told
them that they had rejected God; ordered
the tribes to arrange themselves for thc
purpose of easting lots for a king: Saul is
chosen; Saul had hid himself; thc Lord
revealed his hiding place to Samuel; Saul
is brought in and the people shouted and
said, God save the king.
III. Topic: The consequences of obey?
ing and disobeying God. After his election
as king Saul returned to private life, but
soon it became necessary to go against the
Ammonites, and Saul called the army to?
gether and gained a great victory. Samuel
then called the people together at Gilgal
for the purpose of establishing Saul in the
government. Samuel makes his farewell
address; speaks of his integrity; recall*
Jehovah's past mercies and Israel's ingrati?
tude; confirms his words by a miracle?a
thunder storm in harvest time; the people
are comforted.
IV. Topic: Disobedience punished. Saul
had been king about ten vears; he had grown
proud and rebellious; ne was commanded
to utterly destroy the Amalekites; he
brought back the best of .the sheep and
oxen and Agag the king: Samuel met Saul
and charged him with disobedience; Saul
excused himself and said the people saved
the best in spder to sacrifice to thc Lord;
Samuel said, "To obey is better than sacri?
fice;" Saul is rejected.
V. Topic: The Lord choosing a king.
The history of David is begun; Samuel is
commanded to po to Bethlehem and anoint
one of the sons of Jesse; he fears to go; ia
told to take a heifer and sacijfice unto the
Lord; the elders of the town tremble at
his coming; Samuel told them he came
peaceably; seven of the sons of Jesse are
made to pass before Samuel, but the
prophet said thc Lord had not chosen
them; David is called in from the held
and is anointed by Samuel in thc presence
of his brethren.
VI. Topic: Fighting the Lord's battle.
The Philistines are arrayed against Israel;
Goliath, the Philistine giant, challenges
Saul's army to furnish I champion to meet
him; David hears the challenge and offers
himself; is first clad in a coat of mail, but
lays it aside and takes only his staff and
sling and five smooth stones from the
brook; the Philistine derided David;
David answers him; David slang a stone
and smote Goliath in the forehead; David
then cut off thc head of the giant; the
Philistines fled; Israel pursued them.
VII. Topic: The deliverance and pros?
perity of David. After his victory over
Goliath David acted wisely and was pro?
moted; the women sang his praises; Saul
became very angry; he watched David's
movements with suspicion; feared David
would seize the kingdom; tries to kill
David, by casting his javelin at him; David
escaped; David made captain over a thou?
sand ; all Israel and Judah loved David.
VIII. Topic: Jonathan's last interces?
sion for David. To save his life David fled
to Samuel; Saul pursued him; David then
appealed to Jonathan for assistance; Jon?
athan loved David and promised to find
out what Saul's intentions were; Jonathan
soon discovered that Saul intended to kill
David; Daviu and Jonathan met at the
stone Ezel; according to previous arrange?
ment arrows were shot and David wag
warned; David and Jonathan then have
an affectionate farewell.
IX. Topic: David's noble act. Samuel
died and was buried in Ramah; David in
exile for six or seven years: Saul pursued
him with murderous intent; David's exile
a benefit to him in many ways; Saul's lifo
was twice in David's power; David exhib?
ited true nobility by not permitting him to
bc put to death: David called to Saul from
a distance and expostulated with him;
Saul admitted his sin and promised to
pursue David no longer.
X. Topic: The Israelites defeated. Tho
Philistines fought against Israel; Saul's
sons were slain in the battle; thc archers
pressed Saul hard: he was greatly dis?
tressed; asked his armorbearer to kill him;
the armorbearer would not; Saul took the
sword and took his own life; the armor?
bearer then took his life; the men of Israel
fled; the Philistines came and dwelt in
the country; the bodies of Saul and his
sons treated with indignity: inhabitants of
Jabesh-gilead took the bodies, burnt them,
and buried the bones.
XL Topic: David ascending the throne.
David returned from exile; asked direction
of God; w-as told to "go up" to Hebron;
those with David located near Hebron;
David was anointed king of Judah; he
showed kindness to the people of Jahcsh*
gilead; asked them to recognize his au?
thority; Abner made Ish-boaheth king
over the northern tribes; Abner and Ish
bosheth were both assassinated; all Israel
came to David and urged him to become
their king; he was again anointed and es?
tablished his canital at Jerusalem.
XII. Topic: Warnings against sinful liv?
ing. This epistle was written by the Apos?
tle Peter about A. D. G4-60", from Babylon,
to the Christians scattered abroad; the
true life is the Christ-life; all should for?
sake sin; intemperance is a deadly evil; all
will be judged; Peter urges sobriety, watch?
fulness, prayer, fervent charity, hospitality,
the proper use of gifts. In this lesson we
should dwell on the golden text. "Temper?
ance in its true significance is a very broad
term, and in its importance ranks third in
the constellation of graces, which, accord?
ing to 1 Pet. 1, are thc adornings of true
Christian character. Its proper application
implies the total abstinence from that
which is wrong, and the moderate use and
enjoyment of that which is right. It is a
mistaken and harmful, but too frequent
conception that it means only to abstain
from intoxicants. Properly understood it
comprehends all the inward impulses and
outward acts of life. Cod's commands are
both negative arni positive. The first com?
mand to the race was. 'Thou shalt not.'
Its violation wrecked thc race. In like
manner wreck follows disobedience to the
command, 'Be not drunk with wine.' re?
tribution will sooner or later overtake the
man who indulges, or thc nation which in?
dorses thc Bigantic wrong. In it is excess
of every kind?inebriety, criminality, iu
Gmcral Trade Conditions.
R. G. Dun & Company's "Weekly
Review of Trade" says:
An encouraging symptom is the de?
creased complaint regarding collec?
tions, accompanied by more discount?
ing of bills. Weather conditions have
been favorable for retail trade. There

The Rev. G. W. Rawlings, of Osaka,
Japan, contributes to Nature an inter?
esting example of the pertinacity and
strength of Japanese sparrows. A pair
of sparrows ho found flying about his
bedroom one morning had begun to
build a nest iu a corner of the room,
and though the beginnings of the nest
were cleared away each morning the
sparrows repeated their attempt three
or four successive days. A clothes
brush placed in the corner to keep the
birds away was found to have been
moved by the sparrows, though it wa?
six inches long and two iuches wide.
A collection of molluscs from the
Vicksburg marls has enabled T. L. Ca?
sey to describe a considerable number
of new species and genera in a recent
issue of the Proceedings of the Phila
delphla Academy. In the same journal
A. E. Brown attempts to bring into
something like order tiie various forms
of garter-snakes (Eutaenia) from the
Pacific coast of North America, which
have received distinct specific and sub
specific names. Much interest attaches
to a note by Miss S. P. Monks in the
serial under consideration, in regard
to regeneration in star fishes. It has
been stated that a fragment of a ray,
without any portion of the central
disc, cannot give rise to a new animal.
This is disproved by the new experi?
ments, in which the amputated free
rays developed new bodies, while the
mutilated star fishes produced new
It is reported that Professor Kossel,
of the Imperial Department of Health,
Berlin, supports Professor Koch's view
of the non-transmissihility of bovine tu?
berculosis to man. He stated at a re?
cent meeting of the Berlin Medical So?
ciety that out of all the experiments
conducted by the Imperial Board of
Health, in two cases only had human
tubercle bacilli affected the experimen?
tal animals. Professor Orlth. the suc?
cessor to Virchow in the University ol
Berlin, on the other hand, states that in
his own experiments ten per cent, of
the animals were infected with the tu?
bercle bacillus of human origin. At
the recent congress of the Royal Insti?
tution of Public Health Professor
Young, who has collaborated with Pro?
fessor Hamilton, of Aberdeen, said
that their experiments upon twenty
calves left no doubt of the communi?
cability of human tubeculosls to bo?
vines, and Drs. Dean and Todd have
proved the same point as regards pigs.
Professor Moitch, of Prague, recently
read a paper before the Vienna Acad?
emy of Sciences describing his recenl
experiments with light-giving bacteria.
By inoculating large glass flasks of
one or two quarts' capacity (tilled with
culture fluid), with photo bacteria, he
obtained a "microbe lamp" of consider?
able power. The lamp could be photo?
graphed by means of its own light.
And a watch face could be read at a
distance of seven feet from the light.
"On a dark night it was visible at a
distance of more than sixty paces."
Under suitable conditions the lamp
maintains its brilliancy for three
weeks. Two suggestions for its special
use nre: For attracting fish, as the
flask could readily bc sealed op and
lowered Into tbe water, and for illumin?
ating powder magazines. During re?

work on these bacterial lamps has been
done by* Professor Dubois, and by Pro?

The day was when men of prominence

remains true to-day of most proprietary

justly famous, its merita are known to so
many people of high and low stations,
that no one hesitates to see his name in

The highest men in our nation havo
given Peruna a strong endorsement. Men
