"Well, nnow, what Is Ikedoin precise ly?" inquired tho postmaster after n pause, during which he had waited pa tiently for Mr. Sargent to give some more definite information as to his son's pursuit, which had always been shroud ed in mystery. "Why. I Hin t cal'latin t' tell ye jest th' nanio they give t' a boy in Isaac's p'sl tion," remarked tho father prudently. "It w'd striko ye kind o' queer, smiie as it did me fust off, till Isaac explained 'bnont it?

Chambermaids at swell hotels soon bo come great students of human nature. It does not take them long to size up either the social or financial standing of tho guests. For instance, one showed her acumen in this direction the other day when I happened to call her attention to tho ar ray of six towels on the rock over the washstand in the bathroom. "Think that extravagant?" said the bright young woman. "Well, don't you make any mistake!" "But it most cost the house a lot for laundry bills," I ventured. "Not a hit of it," sho replied vivaci ously. "Most of our trade hero ia first class. No one ever uses a lot of towels nnloss they ore not used to them at home. Men who are accustomed to tho luxuries of life do not take advantage of the supply. It is only the clasa who usu ally wipe their faces on roller towels who abuse our generosity." And doubtless the girl knew what she was talking about. N ew York Herald.

They Would also leap over little bars of wood placed about two inches above the sur face nf tho water. Il is a very simple matter to teach tho fish these tricks. At first a little tower containing a tiny, sweet toned silver bell wns fastened to the iron work of the aquarium with a piece of string attached lo thn tongue of tho bell extending into thn water wherethn trout were. On the loose end of tho string an insect or other tempting morse was placed, which the fish would nt once seize, and pulling the rord tho bell in the tower would na'n rally tinkle. After this had licon l peatud aeveral days the fish were left without food for some little time until I hey Hindu the discovery that they could obtain it by pulling at tho string to which the delicacies had been attached. This they never failed to do ever after ward when they were hungry and ns that was nearly all the time the little bell was constantly tingling ns the lish wi re continually pulling the cord, and it win; quite a pretty and novel sight, New York Herald. 'I'he Hawaiian llciitti I'myer. I'poti tho minds nf such a people as tho Il.iwaiians were, while under their indent form of religion, it. was but nat ural that superstition should gain a rooted hold. The most curious mid ef fective belief to which they wero made snbject was that a man can lie prayed to death a belief that survives among the natives to tho present day. Forlm suc cess of tho tragical death prayer it was necessary to obtain some hair or a piece of finger nail of tho intended victim. A priest wns then employed to use incanta tion nnd prayer for his destruction. Al ways informed of thn doom that the priest was invoking upon him, tho vic tim generally pined away nnd died. Thero is a story current that an Eng lishman in the service of Kamehmuclia I, hnving incurred thn displensnro of a priest, tho latter proceeded to ' remove" him by tho death-prayer process. The Anglo-Saxon, however, set up nn opposi tion altar in derision, mid jokingly pro claimed that ho intended to pray thn priest to death. Alarmed nt tho threat und overwhelmed nt the failure jf his own incantations, tho sorcerer died, prov ing by his death his faith in his religion. E. Ellsworth Carey in Californium Front an Old llnok.

Broadway at thut time was De Heere straat (the principal street). Tho Battery was Aen de Strandt van de N. Beeir. Wall street waa De Waal, Pearl street was De Perel straat, Whitehall street was De Winckel atrsat, William street waa In do Smits valley (In the smith'a valley), and Broadway above Wall street waa Bnyten de Lant Poort (outside the land gate). All of the residents were of Dutch extraction, with the exception of one whose name appears In the list as Jncob, the French man. There were Roosevelt, Beekmana. Dt Peysters, De Puys, Van Cortlandta and Verplancks in those days. Clams, oys ters and fish formed the principal fond of tho settlers at that neriod. Occasion ally in the spring New York was visited by "such amazing flights of wild pigeons that the sun was hid by their flocks from shining on the earth for a considerable time; then it was that the natives laid In a great store of thpni ngalnst a day of need." New York Time. The Love of Dome.tlo Animal.. The man who has not music in his son I is justly exposed to the disparage ment of the poet, but what shall be said of him who cannot find one dumb ani mal at least on which to bestow care and kindness? Sailors and soldiers have their pets; the feathered, the feline, and the canine creation are universal favor ites. Carriers and draymen are rarely in different to the companionship of the fonr footed frienda, and the navvy's dog. while his master is at work in the cut ting or on the embankment, sits on h? peajacket and guards the bundle con- f taining that midday meal of which, when the toiler returns, the good and faithful Bervant will have his share. It would he a very dreary and perhaps ;t wickeder world than it is if we had not animal pets, domestic as well a regimental. London Telegrnph. Trim Marriage. A happy wedlock ia a long falling in love. I know young persons think love belongs only to the brown huir and plump, ronnd, crimson cheek. So it dix's for its beginning, just as Mount Wash ington begins at Boston bay. But the golden marriage is a part of love which the bridal day knows nothing of. Youth ia the tassel and silken flower of love; age ia the fnll corn, ripe and anlid iu the ear. Beantiful is the uiomiug of love, with ita rjronhcrii. ei-ii.w,, vi..i..f .:if- frou, purple and gold, with IU hopes of daya that are to come.
