Ab»r,nethy Wu Too Busy For Romans*
and Courtship,
The reported fashion of the famous
Dr. Abernetby's courtship and mar
riage Is very characteristic. It Is told
that while attending a lady for several
weeks he observed those admirable
| qualifications in her daughter which
I be truly esteemed to render the mar- j
I ried state happy. Accordingly ou a
Saturday, taking leave of his patient,
he addressed her to the following pur- '
| porj:
"You are so well that I ueed not J
j see you after M'onday next, when 1 j
; shall come and pay you a farewell vis- I
it. But in the meantime 1 wish you !
and your daughter to seriously consid
er the proposal 1 am about to make. I
It Is abrupt and unceremonious. I am
aware, but the excessive occupation of
: my time by my professional duties at '■
I fords t|ie no leisure to accomplish j
' what 1 desire by (he more ordinary
: course of attention and solicitation, j
; My annual recetpts amount to £ ,
! and I can settle i OD my wife. My
j character is generally known to the
j public, so that you may readily ascer
! ralu what it ts l have seen in yout
(laughter a tender and affectionate
i child, an assiduous and careful nurse
1 and a gentle and ladylike member of
a family. Such a person must be all j
that a husband could covet, and 1 of
fer my hand and fortune for her ac
| ceptance. on Monday when I call I
I shall expect your determination, for 1
| really have not time for the routine of
I courtship."
| In this manner the lady was wooed
: and v, on, and it may be added the un
ion was felicitous in every respect.—

They Kill Not For Food, but For the
More Sake of Slaughtar.
The ferret is one of the most pecu- !
liar members of the animal kingdom
| It belongs also to an extraordinary
family, that of the weasels A branch I
j of this family Is called the polecats
j the European representative of our
! skunks, and the ferret is a species of
polecat, generally an albino, yellowish
• white in color, with pink eyes.
To bunt and kill mice, rats, rabbits ,
and other small animals Is the ferret's
delight It Is coldly methodical in its
murderous pursuits, and. while it
serves its master well, never tiring lu
the chase and never shrinking from an 1
; attack, it exhibits no trace of affection
ur attachment toward its trainers, as
nobler animals do. The ferret is a
typical killer and blood shedder. It has ■
uo friends and apparently wants none, i
i It cannot be trusted and will some
times attack small children.
t It likes to kill not for the sake of
j food, hut for the sake of billing. The <
mere act of taking the life of another I
iTeature .Is a pleasure to it How It
! got this bloodthirsty strain In its na-
I ture no one cau tell. Its appetite for
slaughter serves well In ridding our I
j bouses of rata and mice, but of what
use is it to the ferret to kill those crea |
1 lures'/ Its nature is that of a demon, i
ind wherever It sees the life blood j
| beating at a throat its brutal instinct
urges it to silt the throat with its keen
teeth and let the life throb outl—New
York Journal.
Ruskin's Political View*.
Ruskin was once a candidate for j
! the rectorship of Glasgow university ;
; and flew into H r«;:e when asked by a ;
1 deputation of the students whether bis
political sympathies lay'with Beacons- !
Held or with Gladstone. "What In the
devil's name," he exclaimed, "have you 1
» do with either Disraeli or Gladstone?
Vou are students at the university and
i have no more business with politics
i than you have with rat catching. Had
i pou ever read the words of mine with
understanding you would have known
that 1 care uo more either for Mr. Dis
raeli or Mr. Gladstone than for two \
»ld bagpipes with the drones' going by j

One Thing In Particular That Painsd •
Visitor From Missouri. , |
I knew before i got here tbat Japan j |
was queer, but I had no idea that
everything was backward. I can't get
used to sitting on the floor and sleep
ing with a lornuto can with a napkin j
11 round it tor a pillow. The easiest
way to figure out how the Japanese j
would do a thing is to think what ]
| would be exactly backward'in Mis-J
souri. When two Japanese meet they !
bow and bow, giving their heads short
; jerks as if trying to get salt water out
of their eyes. When they separate j
they tip their hats. When they come !
into a store they tip their hats. When'
they buy a ticket they tip their hats.
Their elbows are always bent toward j
j their hats.
j Japanese never kiss. This pleasant j
pastime has not yet been imported
into cherry blossom land. It is only j
| recently that a few of the Japanese j
i have learned to shake bands. We
[ travelers are hoping that they will J
take up other great American institu- J
j tions. Japanese look upon kissing as
being low and vulgar, lielieving that a
: few moments spent in bowing Is much
; better. The girls feel tbat way about
It too—they say.
When an ardent young Japnnes«
, suitor slips his arm around the girl's
i waist and whispers into her shell-like
| ear that she is the only woman who
i has ever understood him and when
j she looks up confidingly into his eyes
! end breathes "You are so strong!" he
I does not clasp her to his bosonwin an
j ecstasy of joy and plant a delirious
kiss on hor trembling lips—no. instead
of that he gets up and bows polite
i ly and thanks her in a few courteous
I phrases.
j One cannot help feeling sorry for;
! them when thinking how many pleas
| nnt. evenings they miss. From my
| limited experience I wouldn't give a
| good old fashioned Missouri kiss for
ten minutes of bows.—Homer Croy ID j
I Leslie's.
Reverting a Phonograph Record.
A remarkably curious experiment
j may be performed with any ordinary |
; phonograph. The sound box is re- j
j versed so that the needle slopes the ■
I other way. enabling the disk to be j
turned backward by the linger being
placed near tho center. The effect j
produced is extremely astonishing, j
Yon bear the human voice singing J
i songs backward: you hear the harmony j
| of Wagner backward—plain English
I sounds like a Chinese language. The
most remarkable effect is perhaps to I
I play a chime of bells in this reversed j
| manner. The sour.d rushes up and up, j
I but there is never a single strike ov
clash of a bell. The strike on the ear
[ is reversed and Is nothing but a sharp
i "cessation of sound."—Strand Maga
) zine.
A Scene Before the Mirror.
What the jungle Isdles of Africa lack
in clothing they make up in hair adorn
ment. Some styles are pleasing, while
others are very grotesque. Their bait
combs are made of a very tough wood,
and they need be tough, for one of the
feminine customs to put gum all
j through their hair to keep it in place.
A very strong comb is needed to get it
apart, but the women contrive some
how to do it, ant? as time is not money
j in Africa they are n»?ver in a hurry.
1 One is not surprised to learn that some
times it takes a woman a week to have
her hair properly arranged.—Christian i
j Herald.

Qualities of the Topax.
The name of the precious stone in
serted in the ring of Gyges has nol
been bonded dowu to us. but It Is prob
nble tbat It was the topaz, wbose wou
ders Pbilostrates recounts in the lift
1 of Apollonlus. An attribute of the sun
| and of Ore, the ancients called It tbi
I gold runguet, as it. was credited wits
| the power of attracting that metal, in
dlcntiug its veins and discovering
the treasures. Lleliodorus in his story
of Theagenes and Churlcles says thai
the topaz saves from fire all those wbu
i wear It and that Cbaricles was pre
, served by a topaz from the fiery venge
ance of Arsuces, queen .of Ethiopia.
i This stone was one of the first tails
; mnns that Theagenes possessed lu
| Egypt. The topaa at present symbol
| izes Christian virtues—faith, justice*
| temperance, gentleuess, clemency.
