The other day I was riding in a street
car. There were 11 women and 8 men
In the same quarter. We jogged Mono
onr way as people do ont of whose life
all Interest had been taken by a hot day,
as a rude nnrse snatches playthings from
helpless children. Whether "school kept
or not" was a matter of not the slightest
moment to any of us. Indeed I had rea
son to hope that I should never again be
confronted with bulletins as to the rise
and fall of that mythical educational
bureau whence we all draw more or less
of knowledge fraught with bitter expe
rience. Ita pnpils are so stupid and its
head preceptor so unrelenting that I have
long been a-weary of its curriculum.
Opposite in the car sat a young woman
whom I often meet and shall continue to
meet, I suppose, nntil the sexton shovels
few feet of dust between our faces. If
she were a man, she would be in the at
titude of one who is "spoiling for a
fight" What is mere combativeness
in men takes the form of insolence in
women and is harder to bear. This
young person eyes my clothes, Bhe
gloats over my shabbiness. She knows
exactly how many times a day my poor
old gown ia groomed. She is cognizant
of the fact that my off shoe has sprung
a leak, and as she tosses her head and
smiles the smile that, passed from wom
an to woman, means more than a blow
I seem to hear her says "Ha, enmberer,
are yon here yet? Last time I met you
I thought I stared you down, but such
rubbish seems hard to kill! A trifle
more ridicule, though, slightly veiled,
like poison in a capsule, will lay you
low, and I shall have the pleasure of
turning my battery upon some other
God forsaken crank who appears to have
more brains than stylet"
We were tumbling along in the old
street car, a tired and dirty lot of us,
bound for the depot. As we passed a
certain undertaker's shop on the way we
noticed that a big crowd had collected
at ita doors a hushed crowd, with white
faces and bated breath. A police patrol
was drawn up to the nrbstone and four
brawny officers were lifting something
ont of the wagon and carrying it within
the undertaker's open gate. The some
thing that lay beneath the old tarpaulin
was very still and outlined itself sharply
beneath the sable folds of the pall that
covered it. I turned away from the
sight, for there is that within me that
revolts from such sights as the butterfly
does from the thistle or the swift run
ning boat from a capful of head wind.
I knew well enongh what the "some
thing" was. Ten minutes before per
haps it had been a man, swinging like a
sailor on the uplifted ladder where the
painter pursues his craft, or a careless
vagabond knocked down by a posHing
vehicle and straightway ushered into the
audience chamber of the great and only
King, or a merry hearted boy spnrned by
a flying wheel, or a tired old woman
"lifted high as heaven" by the tender
arms of death. I knew very well that
the awful something was once a breath
ing, blundering mortal like myself and
that a snddon calamity had transferred
it into clay, how or in what terrible
manner I did not care to see. But ev
ery woman in the car in which I rode
jumped from her seat to watch the
growsome thing I turned away from.
"Oh, I wish the cover would fall off so
that we could seel" cried one.
"Lift Willie up so that he can look!"
exclaimed a careful (?) mother, making
room as she spoke for the nnrsegirl to
place the little boy in a better position.
No sooner did all these womon gain a
vantage point from whore they could
beat behold the dreadful burden which
the policemen bore without either ten
derness or care into the waiting station
of the morgue than they began to trem
ble and to cry.
"Oh, dear, how dreadful I" moaned
they in unison, while their fascinated
gaze was unavertod and their necks
were craned to see it all.
And then because I am a philosopher
in my own poor f oslUon and can no more
help philosophizing than a spider can
help spinning webs I said to myself:
That is the way with all of us! We seek
out our earn discomforts and we cul
tivate them with our own tears. We
gloat over the very things that bring us
pain and take a front seat to witness our
own tragedies. Given, the most of us, a
chance to spend an afternoon among the
tombs or to go fishing for goldfish out
of a crystal pond, and we will trot along
with the mourners every time. We are
always in the attitude (most of us) of
the Poterkin family at the seaside. They
were continually looking off shore for
whales, and they saw whales and noth
ing but whales from season's start to
season's close! What we look for we
find, what we sow we reap, what we
dread we draw and what we expect
comes to us.
Take two girls and send them out
through the divine beauty of these June
woods with a basket apiece. They are
after violets, we will say, although the
purple drapery of the dim spirit flower
has been almost withdrawn from the
woods already, like a curtain uplifted
by an eager hand. One of the girls is
afraid of snakes and declares the sight
of one would kill her on the spot. How
she looks for them! How eairerlv she
watches every tremor of the undor-
brush! How she starts at a floating tim
othy and shrieks when a clover jostles
in the wind! And she sees snakes
plenty of 'em! She goes home with an
empty bnsket and has to tnke a pow
der to quiet her nerves. The other
girl keeps her mind on violets and never
sees a serpent's trnil. She goes home
witn a bBHkotnu or flowers and dreams
that she is sotting snil for pnradise in a
pnrple boat with the tender green of
violet stems for its oars and a sail that
smells of the wood flower s perfect soul.

An Ancodota of I,ord l.ytton
Many years ago when the elder BuV
wer was in his prime a laborer on the
estate was engaged to do a certain job
of hard work. At the end of a week he
carried his account to the bailiff, who
aid a week's work was worth 8 shillings
ind 0 pence. The man insisted tluit this
was not enough and refused to settle,
and every time he met the bailiff he
would stop him and ask him for his
money. Finally the bailiff became
angry, discharged the man and refused
to allow any farmer on the estate to hire
The man was forced to leave the
neighborhood, but he was too poor to
move any great distance, so that he was
still within the circuit of tho bailiff's ill
will. Wherever he went this pursued
him, and his life in consequence was a
bard one. Bat all the time he kept tell
ing his family and his friends that some
day ho would get the money which the
Uulwer Lytton estate owed him.
He was well on in years, when ont
day he met a man in tho road. It wui
the somo time poet Owen Meredith, now
come to the titlo, and English embassa
dor to France, at home on a visit.
"You are Lord Lytton, I believe," he
said n I'.ectrully,
"Then, if you please, I should like you
to pay an account which has been due
me for a long time."
Lord Lytton looked at the account
and at his request the man told thf
whole story. The poet was very much
affected and disturbed. Then he eaid:
"Well, I will do what I con to make
it up to yon."
He was as good as his word. He built
a house at the gates of the park, put the
man ana liis family into it, and cave it
to them rent free, with other perquisites,
so that he was entirely comfortable for
the remainder of his days. Hartford

A German Jew who keeps a pawn-
broker's shop in Sydney is blessed with
one daughter, who now and then keeps
shop while her father attends sales on
the lookout for bargains. During the
temporary absence of old Moses recently
a meok looking Chinaman walked into
the shop and asked Rachel to show him
some "welly good watches."
Rachel handed down four from the
shelf at the end of the counter marked
respectively, "MO watch," "40 watch,
"$30 watch" and "f 10 watch," and ar
ranged them in a line on the counter in
the order of their value.
John inspected them, and taking ad
vantage of Rachel's momentary inatten
tion slipped the $10 watch into the place
occupied oy the $40 watch and handed
over a $10 note saying:
"I tukee cheapee watchee."
Shortly afterward Rachel detected the
swindle and sought refuge in tears. On
the return of old Moses she related the
misadventure with many protestations
"Never mind, mine tear." said the
father, with a dry chnckle, "dose vetches

The CnHf Geysers,
Bnnsenhas explained the periodical
eruption of geysers in such a satisfac
tory manner that doubt is no longer pos
sible. A cavern filled with water lies
deep in the earth under the geyser, and
the water in this cavern is heated by the
earth's internal heat far above 218 de
grees, since there is a heavy hydrostatio
pressure upon it arising from the weight
01 water in tne passage or natural stand
pipe that leads from the subterranean
chamber of the surface of the earth.
After a time the temperature of the
water below rises, so that steam is given
off in spite of the pressure, and the col
umn in the xit tube is gradually forced
upward. The release of pressure and
the disturbance of the water then cause
the contents of the subterranean cham
ber to flash into steam and expel the
contents of the exit pipe violently. These
eruptions may also be provoked by throw
ing stones or clods of turf into the basin
of the geyser. The water in the cavern
below is disturbed by this means. Great

It is not any more true in England
than it is in this country that the read
ing of newspapers is spoiling the taste
for books. Never in any other genera
tion were there as large editions of books
of knowledge and thought printed and
sold as there are in this one. The figures
given in the reports of the British and
American book trade are amazing, espe
cially as regards books of the highest
erudition, the deepest cogitation and the
wisest counsel. As many as 00,000 copies
of Mr. Bryce's "American Common
wealth" have already been sold in this
country and England. The works of the
great authors of the past, too, are more
in demand than they ever were before.
It is ignorance to say that good newspa
pers spoil the taste for books. They pro
mote the love of the best books. New

"I have recently had a strange pxperi

and after the exchnnge of Hie nsn :1
greetings she proceeded to condole with
me over the death of my wife. 1 vn

by Assuring her that my wife was in the
land of tho living, well and hearty. The
lady was astonished to learn that M"S.

Mrs. for an explanation. It was
early in the evening when in answer to
the ringing of the doorbell Mrs.
opened, the door. She pretended to be
startled by my wife's presence and
screamed: 'Why, Mary, can this bo you?
I thought you were dead.'
" 'So I have heard from a dozen sources.'
responded Mary, 'and I want you to ex

There is no single exercise which coin
bines so many health giving qualities as
riding. It is peculiarly valuable to
children, for it is the most certain and
gentle developer of the back and stom
ach muscles and imparts a tone to the
entire system that cannot possibly be
attained in any other way. Even foot
ball, the hardiest of all games, fill It
short of having the same invigorating
effect on the boy. If this be true for
the boy and such it is now generally
admitted to be how much more neces
sary Is riding to the young girl who has
no game but lawn tennis, which fails to
exercise the most important parts of her
Few boys and girls, and almost as few
men and women, think twice of tho val
ue of different kinds of exercise to them,
or would know much about it if they
did think. Any exercise of course, mod
erately taken, is better than none, bnt
the exerciso which acts upon arms and
legs only is of not one-half the value of
that which acts on the body, the chest,
stomach and back. When, then, an ex
erciso is found that acts on all, its value
is apparent without further argument.

The Rev. Joseph Haven, who preached
in Rochester, N. H., during the lost
quarter of the last century, has been al
ways remembered for his genial spirit
and his inexhaustible humor. One story
told of him has many parallels, but it it
quite as likely to be true in his case as
The boy had been guilty of some grave
olicnse, and yet would not confess it
"I can tell who did it," said the parson.
and accordingly he called together all
the boyssuspected and explained to them
that he had confined a rooster under a
kettle in a darkened room. One after
another they must pass in and touch the
bottle. Whon the guilty boy touched it.he
might expect to bear the rooster crow,
The lads filed in and out again and
were made to display their fingers. All
but those of one lad were sooty. He, the
guilty one, bad not ventured to touch

Light shoes, short shoes and clumsy
shoes produce corns by compressing,

A great many of these pedal blemishes
are nereaitary. in any case it is a good
plan to suppress them. Every medicine
merchant bos a variety of "cures," and
nearly all give temporary relief. A
poultice made of vinegar soaked bread
crumbs will cure a little corn in one
night. It is not advisable to let a corn
grow. Either rub down the formation
with pumice stone or remove it with a
knife. A little opposition will discour
age it, provided sensible shoes are worn.

The English Admiral and the Dey.
The Moors hold by their beards when
they swear in order to give weight to
their oath, which after this formality
they rarely violate. The length of beard
seems to weigh with them more than the
stock of brains.
Admiral Keppel was sent to Algiers to
demand satisfaction for tho injuries dono
to his Britannia majesty's subjects by
their corsairs. The dey, enraged at tho
boldness of the embassador, exclaimed
"that he wondered at the insoloncu of
tho English monarch in sending hiiii a
message by a foolish, beardless boy."
The admiral, somewhat nettled, re
plied that if his master had supposed
wisdom was to be measured by the
length of the beard he would doubtlea
have sent the dey a he goat.
This answer so enraged the dey that
he ordered his mutes to attend with the
bowstrings, saying that the admiral
should pay for his boldness with his life.
Nothing daunted by this threat, the em
bassador took the dey to the window,
and showing him the English fleet said
if it was his pleasure to put him to
death there were Englishmen enough
in that fleet to make him a glorious fu

Forfettlnf One's Children.
"I left my children standing there,
exactly there!" It was in one of the
stores in Temple place, and the mother
who had lost her two little girls pointed
with absolute decision to the place where
she was certain she bad told them to
wait for her while she went to another
counter to look at a bargain. A small
commotion of inquiry and search at once
buzzed through the store. Presently
one of tho head men stepped to the door
and looked up and down the street to
see if the lost children had strayed out
In front of another store a few doors
up the street a small crowd was collect

were still standing in the doorway of the
store exactly where she bad left them
when she weut away down to the other

was she had left thorn, and added, "I de

The success which attended the use of
the electrio light in fishing off the Cali
fornia coast has led to the devising of
various improved apparatus for that pur
pose. One of these consists of a large
iron frame Interlaced with netting, which
can be opened and closed at the will of
the operator. An electrio light incased
in a lantern is lowered into the net, the
electricity beiug furnished by a motor
in the bow of the boat. As the boat
moves along the network is thrown open,
and the bright light of the lamp, which
is seen at a great distance in the clear
water, arouses the curiosity of the fish,
which readily swim into the trap. This
is the modern variant of the old method
of destroying fish from a canoe by torch
lightExchange. Early Beading.

M. Turpln's Kew War Machine.
M. Tnrpln, recently released from
prison after having been unjustly con
victed of selling the secret of the manu
facture of his melinite, is reported to
have invented a new war machine of a
very deadly character. It appears that
it is a very light affair, can be served by
four men and drawn by two horses. It
shoots four times In a quarter of an
hour and each discharge throws 21,000
projectiles, which kill at 8,500 meters,
scattering in every direction and cover
ing geometrically 22,000 square meters.
Ordinary commercial vessels and fishing
boats can be armed with this electrio
machine without any important change
in their equipment. It is expected to
make any one of them more than a
match for the greatest battleship In ex
istence. It is claimed that the projectiles
of this machine can pierce the heaviest
armor as easily as a rifle ball passes
through an ordinary plank.
If the machine is anything like what
it is reported to be, all forts and forti
fications will be rendered practically
useless. They can be reduced to a heap
of ruins in a few hours.
A reporter of The Temps interviewed
M. Turpin the other day in regard to
the machine. "The reports in the news
papers," he said, "are exact in substance,
but in the way that they are put nobody
can understand anything of my inven
tion. It was during my imprisonment
at Etamps that I devised the thing, but
the invention is as yet only theoretical,
because I have not been able to expert- .
ment with it But at the same time I
am certain of success. On the other
hand, I have taken out no patent, be
cause by doing so I would immediately
throw my invention to the public, and
that is precisely what I wish to avoid.
In a short time I hope to be able to pre
sent myself to the ministry, and then I
can exhibit my invention and make ex
periments. I cannot say any more about
it at present."

There has been a vigorous contest in
the legislature of Connecticut over the
provisions of the proposed general
statute for the regulation of electrio rail
way enterprises. As finally passed, the
bill permits the paralleling of existing
steam railroads, provided the courts can
be convinced that the public interests
require it in any particular case, which
is perhaps the wisest disposition of the
matter that could have been made.
Freight may be transported under sim
Our own view of the matter is that the
steam railroad companies will ultimately
find it for their interest to control nil tho
profitable and well located electric lines
and will operate them on a coupon ticket
system as feeders and distributors of
their local passenger traffic. That this
might be done in many cases, with the
greatest possible advantage to all con
cerned, is obvious upon the most casual
consideration of the matter. Engineer--ing
Heaths From Diphtheria.
Nearly one-third of the 702 deaths in
this city lost week were the result of
three diseases pulmonary consumption,
diarrhea and diphtheria. The mortal
ity from diphtheria in proportion to the
number of cases of it was vory high, or
49 deaths to 110 cases.. Until 40 years
ago this malady was almost unknown .
in the United States, but it has latterly -become
widely prevalent and is terribly
dangerous, as may be seen by the rec
ords of mortality. No effective method
of treating it has yet been discovered,
though men of science have striven and .
are striving to discover such a method.
It is a contagious disease; it is epidemic.
We wish that somo member of the med
ical faculty could find the means of put

In driving over the Maine highways
yon must have noticed that whenever
you pass the ruins of an abandoned
house or an old cellar where a house
once stood there is often a big patch of
cinnamon roses growing wild around the
place. One does not see them often near
homes that are occupied, and their fre
quency around tho abandoned places in
dicates that they either were greatly in
fashion in former years or else they love
decay and neglect and spring into beiug
in such places spontaneously. These rose
