Whenever a man fails in an under taking he attributes it to fatalism. Blulrhra. The man who wan old enough to know better was chafing up and down a Sixtevntb dtrcet boarding house, try ing to find a match to light a cigarette with. "Did it ever occur to you, " ho said to the man who finally fouud a light for him, "what a boon and a benison the cigarette manufacturer has been to I the match manufacturer? Think of it a moment. First, however, give me an, other match for this cigarette. I don't know how many cigarettes are made in this country, but let us, for the sake of argument, say there are a thousand carloads a year. Well, it takes on an average another light, please four matches to the cigarette, and the manu facturer of matches must therefore make 4,000 carloads of matches just to meet the cigaretto demand. You may not think 4,000 carloads is a great quantity, but if you knew how hard it was to get one match when your cigar ette is out, you would think 4,000 car loads wasn't a few if you had to go around begging them. I have never given serious study to tho matter, but, looking at it casually, I should say the match manufacturers owo an inestima ble debt of gratitude to the cigarette makers." New York Sun. Catth rmis (ilory. An ordinary service to mankind is usually paid for at current rates in legal tender. An extraordinary service, not involving tho element of heroism, is re warded by both legal tender and more or less fame. The highest of all services, rendered at the risk of life, is supposed to receive its full compensation in glory, unaccompanied by more sordid consid erations. If, however, the hero of the service last mentioned should not be contented with his meed of glory, but should demand more substantial reward, be may receive it indeed, but at a large discount from tho other (and in senti mental estimation more valuable) con sideration. Unlike the butcher, the baker and tho candlestick maker, who receive their quid pio quo without a thought of humiliation, either in their own minds or yours, the man who saves your life at the risk of his own is looked upon ns almost if not quite disgracing himself by accepting your proiTered pe cuniary reward, although he may, in fact, he in f:ir sorer need than any one of tho worthy trio who sinq ly contrib ute to your necessities or comforts. Edward P. Jackson in North American Review. The ilov woriu'n X Hay. The glowworm's light is said to have been shown to be due to the emission of rays similar to Roentgen's. Three hun dred glowworms were caught near Kioto and placed before photographic plates screened from the light by sev eral thicknesses of black paper, together with plates of brass, copper and alumin ium. A piece of curd board with a hole in it was placed between tho metal and tho photographic plate, and for two days tho arrangement was kept in a dark chamber, sheltered from all foreign lights. On developing the plate it was found to be blackened, except the part opposite the hole in tho cardboard. The rays of the glowworm would appear therefore to pew trate metal and excite luminosity in cardboard. When there is nothing between the sensitive plato and the glowworm, t lie rays are said to be have like ordinary light, but in travers ing some metals and cardboard they se in to acquire properties like that of X rays, or it may be that tho ordinary glowworm emits X us well as ordinary rays.

"Ah, yon have como back to pay the other gentleman's check," said tho cashiei as Drooks went back, stepped np to tho desk a second time and handed out a half dollar.
