The irrepressible boy is a character, and
there are a good many of him. He is as
omnipotent us he is voluminous. He bobs
up tinuVr the most inconceivable circum
Ktunces, and generally with a serenity that
In provoking. You can't bottle him, nud
It would be ivpruhensibie to kill him. You
can kit down on him, but lie won't stay
nit down on. Ho i a terror to his sister
and his smut's lover; family secrets are
not sacred iu his eyes; he shirks his own
work, but is always ready to do another
boy's, or, more particularly, a full grown
man's work.
Today lie is horribly matter of fact, to
morrow lie may be mawkishly sentimeutal.
Atone moment he startles you with the
vigor of his loic, at tlio next he surprises
you with the silliness of his deductions.
Now he charms you with his iunato polite

the proprieties. Ho can look profoundly
innocent when most surely guilty, and de
vise an alibi with raro ingenuity.
1 do not believe that the boy invariably
"foreshadows the man," or that "men are
but children of a larger growth," ns Dry
den expresses it. The Koody-goody boy
may fio to ruin on the fast express, the bad
boy may ennoble ids manhood; the smart
boy may not rise above mediocrity, the dull
boy may forjie straight to the f rout. When

I think it w:is Lyman Hiecher who said:
"1 admire boys iu (.lie roiinh. I like them

so do I. 1 am ready to make allowance

another name for endurance.

Irrepressible man, uud if the impressibil

as Seward, 1'hiliips, Garrison and Fre

thankful that the fault, or the faculty,
pivw with their growth.
In my boyhood I believed in Pauta Claus
and Jack and the D;anslalk. It was utter
I hud reached manhood that I became cyn
ical, incredulous and suspicious.
Our inventory of a boy may not amount
to much. There nre too many unknown
quantities, too many undeveloped phases,
too many umkimated possibilities. I have
a friend who prides himself upon his
knowledge of liumun nature. His intui
tions never deceive him. Boys are his es
pecial study; lie can read a boy like an
open book. He can sum up his worth,
forecast his failures, predict his successes.
I mean to say that ho thinks he can. I
had an amusing illustration of his power
last summer.
"Those arc very good boys of Dar
ringer's," my friend remarked to me one
lie referred to a family who recently
had moved into the neighborhood.
"Do you think sof" I quietly asked, a
quaver in my voice which escaped his
"Yes," he answered. "Two of them
were here early this morning to ask per
mission to pick berries in the clearing. I
waH pleased with their frank ways and
honest faces. They took oil their hats, in
dulged in no slang uud looked squarely at
me. I can tell a polite, honest, truthful
boy the minute I st my eyes on him.
Catch any boy raised around here asking
for permission to pick berries! I'd think
the millennium was about to dawn. They
had only one small basket between tbem.
'Why didn't you bring a larger basket?' I
asked. 'Oh, we only want enough for
mamma to make a pie of,' they said. I tell
you, they are honest, truthful, well raised
"Yes," I replied, scarcely able to repress
iny emotion. "What time were they here
this morning?"
"As early as 5 o'clock."
"And it. is about 5 in the afternoon now,
Isn't it?" I nuked.
"Well," I said, "I came past your clear
ing iifteen minutes ago. The two Darrin- (
ger boys came out of it with four large '
baskets filled with berries. 'Coys, you've
had good luck,' I said. 'You can bet your
bottom dollaron that,' one of them replied,
'we carried just ns many homo at dinner
time.' 'Did you ask Mr. Bradford's per
mission to pick berries?' I inquired. 'Yes,'
was the reply. 'We pulled his leg for him.
Yi'c hid all our baskets iu tho bushes but
the two quart one. We shut up his eye
most everlastingly.'
"Well, those frank, truthful boys, who
do not indulge in slang, and who look
squarely at you, were twelve hours in your
clearing, and got away with ut least two
bushels of your berries. Of course you
can tell an honest, truthful boy the minute
you set your eyes on him!"
My friend did not get vexed. lie ignored
the sarcasm underlying iny speech. A sad
look crept into bin eyes, and he muttered
something about total depravity nnd the
need of wider Christianizing influences.

There is a monument erected in Torquay
cemetery to the memory of Isaac Jlerritt
Singer, of sewing machine fame, which
cost $50,000. In Mortjake cemetery a monu
ment in the shape of an eastern tent, erected
over the grave of Sir Richard Burton, the
explorer, cost 1,000. In the cemetery
near Abroath is a monument erected by
Patrick Allen Fraser of Hospitalficld, in
memory of his wife, which cost even more
than that, erected over Singer's grave. It
was the work of your" to build, and Mr.

Tired Eyes and Insomnia
"Among other evil results from abuse ot
the eyesight," said a medical expert in the
treatment of eye and ear, "is tho fact that
to it may be attributed the rcat increase
in recent years of the much dreaded in
somnia. From my experience with the
" kur.'lreds of cases of eye affections I am
satisfied that three-quarters of the cases of
sleeplessness come from nervousness di
rectly traceable to undue strain upon the
optic nerve. In these days of unceasing
work the eyes are not given the rest to
which they are entitled. Clerks, lawyers
and professional men generally are con
tinuously poring over books and papers,
and the result is apparent not only In the
actual Injury to the eyo itself, but in the
retroactive effect upon the nerve and brain.
Even the amusements and recreations in
which they indulge after the day's work
are of a character to be a still further
strain upon the eye.
"Insomnia In women comes largely from
too much work with the needle or pro
tracted occupation in some clerical posl-
tion. There U a simple remedy tor sleep
lessness, which by Its nu tailing success
proves that the trouble largely comes from
the overstrain of the eyes. If the sufferer
will take a small piece of toweling or other
soft cloth and fold In It two small bits of
ice, and then lie down and adjust the cloth
so that the ice will exactly cover the closed
eyes, he will shortly And himself droppiug
off into a refreshing sleep. This, of course,
is only a temporary relief, but the insom
nia victim can readily cure himself by
shielding his eyes from overmuch strain."

Bow the Autocrat Troposed.
It was on the Common that we were
walking. The mall or boulevard of our
Common, you know, has various branches
leading from it In different directions. One
of these runs down from opposite Joy
street southward across tho whole length
of the Common to Boylston street. We
called it the long path and were fond of it.
I felt very weak indeed (though of a
tolerably robust habit) us we came oppo
site tho head of this path on that morning.
I think I tried to speak twice without mak
ing myself distinctly audible.
At last I got out tho question, "Will you
tako the long path with me?" "Certainly,"
said the schoolmistress, "with much pleas
ure." "Think," 1 said, "before you an
swer. If you take the long path with me
uow, I shall interpret it that we are to part
no more." Tho schoolmistress stepped
back with a sudden movement, as if an
arrow had struck her.
One of the granite blocks used as seats
was hard by, the one yon may still see
close by the gingko tree. "Pray sit down,"
I said. "No, no," she answered softly. "I
will walk the long path with you."

Musical Car Whistles.
To the average New Yorker who finds
himself in Brooklyn in the course of the
open car Reason tho most remarkable
feature of the occasion, is the solos per
formed by the conductors when they start
and stop the aforeeuld cars.
They are not satisllud with the "toot" to
stop and the "toot-toot" to go ahead that
their New York brethren use, but run iu
bewildering combinations of "tootle-tootle-ti-too"
and "whoopety-whoop" that mukes
a stranger's brain reel. Some have a double
whistle and some bosst whistles with three
pipes. These gentlemen penetrate the air
with bird notes and gurgling trills, and
when a dozen cars of as many lines get
bunched together at the bridge or Fulton
ferry the resemblance to a rehearsal of a
brass band on Saturday night is startling.
I asked a conspicuous performer on the
pipes the reason for his outbursts, and he
replied: "It's de kids, see? If we use 'er
plain whistle doy gets onto us, see? 'En
dey make de driver keep astoppin' all day,
see?" New York Herald.
Disease Curried by Files.
Any one who has been iu Egypt will
have hud an object lesson on the propaga
tion of diseaso by files. The many victims
of ophthalmia to be soeo there usually have
their open sores covered by swarms of flies,
which makes the prsaeuce and obtrusive
ness everywhere In that country of this In
sect pest doubly abhorrent, from the possi
bilities of contagion by contact with them.
The prevalence of ophthulmia in Egypt is
attributed specially to these swarms . of
flies, which convey infection from affected
subjects to those unaffected.
Iu our own country there is no specific
malady which may be thus mainly attrib
utable to the germ currying action of Hies,
but it is quite possible that many cases,
where the sources of infection cannot be
traced, may have hud their origin in the
presence of files unwittingly admitted from
tainted places. Brooklyn Eugle.
What a Tm volar Saw la America.
A German scribe relates that during a

was displayed upon pocket handkerchiefs.
The climax of astonishment was readied
when the Teuton purchased a nowspuper

relate that three publishers defy competi

Vulgar Wealth.
On a Pullman coach, on iny way to Mar
quette, on tho Duluth, South Shore and
Atlantic railroad, a colored porter asked
me if I know a certain other passenger. I
did not. "Wall," said the porter, "he has
just given me a five dollar bill, and said ho
did it 'for a starter.' Dat feller is jist reek
ing with money, for sure." A man who
will give a porter five dollars for a starter
where others expect to satisfy him with
twenty-five cents is a vulgar fellow, no
matter what his wealth or position may be.

A Traveling Mao Discovers That Be Bni
Slept with Staue Company.
A gentleman who traveled in the rural
districts of the west some years ago says
that to this day he has a "creeping sensa
tion" when he recalls Ids experience in
spending the night at a farm house. It
was lato in the summer, and the farmers
were doing their threshing, while their
wives were emptying their ticks and refill
ing them with clenii straw.
Just before dark the traveler reached a
comfortable looking house, where a hearty
welcome was accorded him when he asked
If. he might stay all night. While eating
AaC 1,-M ! ' Ui.:l h
his supper he heard the farmer's wife say
to her husband and son:
"The straw tick from the spare room
bed will have to be filled. I emptied it to
day and forgot all about it until this min
ute." When the tired guest was shown to his
room he undressed hastily and climbed
into bed. Every movemont of his body
caused the straw to rustle under him, and
pretty soon he discovered that It rustled
even when he was lying perfectly still.
He was of a nervous temperament, and the
strange noise disturbed him.
It was only occasional. lie would be
still for a moment, and then the straw
would rustle loudly. He fancied he
felt something moving under him. The
rustling grew more frequent, and he won
dered what caused it. . It might be a rat!
He sat up in bed. At once the rustling
became more violent than ever, nnd he dis
tinctly felt movements under him. Ho
jumped from his bed, lighted his candle
and looked nt the straw tick. All was still
"I guess it's nothing but grasshoppers or
crickets," ho said. "I'm not going to bo
cheated out of my rest by some harmless
He got back into bed, but pnssed a rest
less, wearisome night, hearing the rustling
sounds frequently. The next moruing he
said to his host:
"I beg your pardon, but I think that a
mouse or some small animal was In the
straw you put into the tick on my bed last
night 1 heard and felt something rustling
around constantly."
"Wo must seo nbout It," said the man.
"nenry you pitch the tick out on the grass
and empty out the straw. Liko as not
some of them plaguy Held mice got into it.
It wns so dark wc couldn't have seen it if
it had been a ground hog."
A few minutes later Henry nppearcd at
an open window wilh a black snake fully
four feet long daugling from the end of a

"That's all It was. He was turrible mad,
and come nt me tho minute I let him out.

"And 1 slept all night with that thing in
my bedl" gasped the stranger, shuddering
from head to foot.
"Shucks!" said the farmer; "he wouldn't
'a' hurt you none if he had bit you. Them
kind of snakes ain't pizen." Youth's Com
panion. A Word for the Earthworm.
The earthworm is an animal which has
not received that attention from zoologists
which It deserves, in spite of the fact that
its habits and structure formed the last of
that magnificent series of volumes with
which Darwin enriched scientific literature.
And it has not only been neglected by nat
uralists, but has incurred the bitter enmity
of gardeners and farmers. It is true that
the gardener has t vtue reason for his dis
like wheu he sees his carefully rolled walks
and smooth lawns rendered unsightly by
the heaps of earth with which the worm
diligently covers them.
But the farmer has no business to com
plain, for not only do earthworms form a
large part of the food of mnuy birds, which
would, perhaps, in their absence direct
their attention more closely to his crops
and fruit trees, but they are of positive ad
vantage in loosening the soil, and so mak
ing passages for tho rain to trickle down to
the lowest roots.
More than a hundred years ago Gilbert
bite devoted one of his letters to the sub
ject of earthworms, and defended them
from the accusation of uselessness and in
juriousness in the economy of nature, re
marking further, and so to a certain ex
tent anticipating Darwin, that they are
often responsible for the formation of new
soils. F. L. Beddard, M. A., in Chambers'

The "torpedo" or "cramp fish" has two
complete electric batteries on either side of
its head, constructed after the most ap
proved scieutilic principles. Kach of them
consists of about 470 cells In the shape of
six sided tubes placed side by side. The
walls of these cells are lined with nerve
tissue und each one is filled with a clear,
trembling jelly. Precisely how many volts
this duplex galvanic apparatus is capable
of administering bus never been deter
mined, but frequent experience has shown
tho power to be sufficient to knock down
and temporarily paralyze a man.
Natives in Central America are said to
make a practice of driving wild horses into
water where cramp fish are in order that
the latter may stun the frightened quad
rupeds and make them easy to capture. So
that a shock shall bo administered, the ob
ject must be brought iuto contact at two
points wilh the torpedo, thus completing
the electric circuit.
Scientific men regard this as oue of tho
most interesting of natural phenomena.
iwo other kinds of animals possess gal
vanic batteries a catfish and an eel. The
two latter have the styrago cells situated
in their tails. In all three cases the elec
tricity is merely transformed nervous en
