BALDNESS NO OBJECTION. How the EnterprUing Photographer Over comes the Fear of Halrlen hitters. An agent soliciting trade for u Broad way photographer recently culled at tho Park avenue home of one of New York's best known physicians and tiied to con vince the doctor that he should have his picture taken. He was soiling 'h photograph coupons. Tho physician has a terribly bald head. Nothing but a fretful iriugo remains on an erstwhile luxurious head of hair. On that account he had long ago given up having pho tographs ol himself made, so ho replied: 'No; thank you. I want none of your coupons, l uave broken myself of the photograph habit. My head is too bald for the business. " But the agent was persistent, and finally the physician said: "I will make you a fair proposition. I will take a double dose of your coupons if you w ll promise to fix my pictures so the bald spot will not show." "All right," said the agent after a moment's reflection. "Air. can ar range that. Such things are done every day in our business. Hero ate your cou pons. Come to the gallery for your sit ting next Saturday." When he went to the photographer's studio tho following Saturday, the doc tor was met at tho door by a lad who, when the customer removed his silk hat, said : "Oh, this is Dr. , is it? Pass right along this way. " Curious to know why this lad had t'eu forcwurned of his visit, the physician passed in and was finally met by a young lady, who glanced at his head and said ; "(Hi, Dr. , I believe the man who wishes to have photographs which will indicate that ho has a full growth of hair on his head?" "I'm the man," perplexodly replied tho physician as he went on out into the operating room. "Ah," said the man in charge of the cameras, "this is Dr. , is it not the man for whom we are to make pho tographs which will not show tho bald ness of his head, as our agent promised. Just kindly step over to the other end of the room. No; do not lay your coat and hat down. Keep the overcoat on your arm and kindly place your hat on your head. That's right. Now look pleasant, please. There, your picture's taken!" "Well, I hope I can get homo with out being taken in by a gang of bunko steerers," 6aid the physician, after he realized that ho had been made the vic tim of a clever trick. New York World. Manual Training. An old friend of Dr. Holmes says: About 20 years ago, being in Boston one day, I called upon him and was ushered into his library unannounced. As the door opened 1 heurd a singular scraping sound, and the doctor rose to meet me with a slightly embarrassed air. When the servant was gone, I said, "I am afraid I disturbed you." He laughed. "Yes, you did, but I was at work on neither a poem nor a lecture. ' ' He touched a spring, and out from un der the library table rolled a little bench fitted out with a turning lathe aud tools. "This is the way I rest myself," he said. "But there are people in the world who would think that if a physician made 'jimcracks' he must be mad. So when I think any such fools are coming I touch this button, and away goes my workbench, and I am discovered in character, bending over my books." Dr. Holmes was one of the first of our physicians to see aud point out the dan ger in tho prolonged nervous strain to which brain workers in this country too often subject themselves. He insisted upon the valuo of a hobby, some mental occupation differing from tho ordinary business or profession, on which the brain could at once work and rest. Housekeeper. A Newspaper For the llliml. There is but one uevspaier in the world that is published in the interest of blind people, The Weekly Summary of Loudon. It was started in the spring of 18U2 and now claims subscribers in every quarter of the glube. It is printed in "raised," or Brailie letters, and is considered a literary curiosity. That it will succeed may bo judged from the fact that it has been twice enlarged since the fall of IbM. St. Louis Ilo public.

Hero is an account of a phenomenon of the Pascagoula river iu Mississippi, to which, although it is not generally known, the attention of naturalists has been called on account of its mystery. At times very remarkable sounds are heard at the mouth of this river. The local fishermen say that it is "the6pirits singing under the water." It is a mur muring sound, which rises gradually and then falls to a lower tone. The music ceases when the waters are dis tnrbed, and when they are quiet it be gins again. Several explanations have been offered as to the origin and cause of the myete rious sounds of the Pascagoula. The most satisfactory theory is that the sounds are produced by a species of fish in 6ome unknown way. Professor G. Brown Goode, who is an authority on fishes and fish life, thinks that the drum xlsh may cause the sounds in question. Instances of peculiar sounds being heard at sea and ascribed to fishes are not uncommon, as the following exam pies will show: In 1824, when Lieutenant White of the American navy was at the mouth of a river in Cambodia, he and his crew were surprised by. unusual sounds. He described the noises as h mixture of the bass of an organ, the ringing of teh. tho guttural cries of a large frog and the tones of an immense harp. Th natives said that the sounds were produced by n school of a certain kind of fish. Dr. IUiist, 1817, reported that a party of people in a bout on the waters near Bombay heard strarge sounds, which the natives held to be caused by fish The well know n English traveler, Sir J Emerson Tennent, heard similar sounds from the lake of Batticaloa in Ceylon, and here agaiu tho natives claimed that fishes made the sounds. Several corre spoudents of newspapers have reported having heard sounds which were pro duced by fishes. One writer in the Lon don Field, 1807, avers that in the har bor at (ireytowu, Nicaragua, he was haunted .it night by these mysterious sounds. Another in the same paper tells of musical sounds which he heard in the Tavoy river. Other instances of more recent date might bo mentioned. From all the accounts given we may draw some interesting conclusions. Thus it seems that the sounds are al most always heard on shipboard, though Charles Kiugsley once heard them at Trinidad from the shore; that they are usually heard in tropical regions ; that they are more often heard at night than at any other time; that they are com monly heard at the mouth of livers, as at the mouth of the Pascagoula, and that they have been reported from far distant places in America, Europe and Asia. Our Animal Friends. Praises the Illcycle. It seems to be coming scientific ap proval in all directions. Dr. Cham poniere, member of the Academy of Medicine, has made observations on Frenchwomen who have used the wheel, and he finds they are better performers than men, learning more easily and with loss purposeless expenditure of force. Ho finds a marked increase in the amount of muscle developed all over the trunk of the body, especially about the torso. The lung capacity is increased, full, healthy action of the heart is re stored and the deposition of fat is avoid ed. Tho doctor asserts that he can detect infallibly the woman who uses the wheel from her sisters when they cross the streets. One proceeds with self con fidence and ease when the other dodges and invites disaster. Ho then examines the mental discipline afforded by the bi cycle, and thence deduces his most strik ing conclusions. Ho finds that the wom an's powers of attention and observation are awakened in an extraordinary de gree, or rather that these powers, with which all human beings are endowed at birth, are saved from atrophy, which in both sexes is one of the most marked defects produced by civilization. The wheolwomeu move with something of the freedom and dignity observed in some of the higher uncivilized races. The doctor disclaims any intention to theorize, but at the close of his article permits himself to dream of a new Frenchwoman as the product of the bi cycle. EflVctlTe.
