A very curious item in toxleoloffleal  lore I   chanced   toligbt  upon,   wrote  George-Augustus Saja.in one of,his let-  iters, may be calle.d the feat of poison-  i ing by sleight of hand.    You wero jeal-^  jous of a lady, and you wished to kill  ! her.    Well, you a'sked her to lunch, and  j you  caused  a  very  nice  peach  to  be  j served at dessert.    Yor. cut  the fruit  j with-a golden  knife,  one side of the  I blade   of  which   was   endued   with   a  ;";Hea,<*ily'poison.    You presented thn poi-  jsoaed-half of the?  pt-ach  to'the  laciy, ���������  I who ate it with much relish and then  j dropped down dead.  ���������'    The  wholesome   half  you  aty  yourself and  laughed  in  your.sleeve and  went on slicing: mora peaches  for the  ladies of whom  you were jealous till  you were found out and broken on the  wheel.    Aye, there's the rub!

He was a man of fifty  when* he first hung about, and -he had  the appearance of being "seasoned."  No one ever asked" Bones 'any questions, and he volunteered, no information. " .     ���������  Some one called him Bones the first  day he appeared, and the name stuck  ��������� to him.    He' accepted it without rc-  '���������   mark.    What is- the odds to a  vagabond whether  he is called  Bones  or  '-Jones?  It may seem curious that no one" ever  became'sufficiently interested in Bon'oSx.  to  draw  him   out or  that  some ,day  when he longed for human sympathy,  ..he did not volunteer his story; but, as  a matter of,fact, he was only one of  hundreds of vagabonds slouching along  "the streets -of ��������� London.    Why' should  any one of higher station care who he  was or whence he came?    And if he  -.had related his,'history it might have  1   been'that of scores of others and would  have'1 brought   neither, sympathy   nor  sixpence.  Bones was inoffensive.   He was also  "passably honest, and when .kicked out  of the way he took it as a matter of  course. 'He was content with the shabbiest raiment and had not too hearty  an. ^appetite, , so  it   came   about   that  x he was allowed to hang about the market without complaint.    His lodgings  .were in vacant buildings, coalyards or  . doorwaj-s, and the only time he got full  meals and^a decent bed was when the  ' police pulled him in and he was sent  to the workhouse. .��������� ' ',    \  , < He had put1 in ten years in London,  and there Was no appreciable change in  him. He was gray haired, stoop shouldered,' ragged and redk nosed/ but he  had been that on his arrival.  Is or had  .there' been  any  change in  his plans.  He had come to London to live out the  ' remainder of his days.- and he was doing it.- If it ever occurred-to him that  some day.' he' must land iu the' almshouse," -die and .be buried as- a pauper,  he said nothing about it,and was not  .worried.., ' 7,    7      '  * * '  * One dayBones was slouching along  He was not begging or  or looking after coal to  be put in." He4 was simply vagabondizing and letting his feet take his body  where they would. If a pojiceman had  made an arrest, Bones would have had  no curiosity. If tho fire engines had  come rattling up, he would not have  halted and become a spectator.  He had  > witnessed dogfights, street rows, 'fires  nnd arrests so often that they no longer held any interest.  One who saw him dragging along  ���������with his eye's on the ground would have  said '-that nothing but a kick from a  .truck horse could have aroused him,  and yet a mere tvirie did the business.  Of a sudden a pet poodle pursued by a  gang of boys ran up to Bones as if to  ask for protection. He picked up the  dog and carried it along,'and, though  threatened by the hoodlums, he clung  to the canine. After --walking two  blocks he came upon a carriage containing a girl about ten years old. The  poodle had escaped from the carriage  as it was driving through Willow place,  and the little one was crying piteouslj'  over her loss.-  Bones walked directly to the vehicle  and placed the dog in her arms, and  the overjoyed girl reached out for his  hand and exclaimed:  ���������'Oh, you good, good man'. You look  ragged, but I know you're uot bad. I'll  give you some money, and if you'll  come and see papa I know he'll find a  place for you and help you along.    My  'name is Minnie, and it was so good of  you, and"���������  ���������But the driver shook his whip at the  vagabond and started up his horses.  For the,rest of that day Bones was  only outwardly Bones. He had been  kindly addressed by a human being.  He had been told that some one might  help him upward. His hand had been  shaken in gratitude, nnd he had been  called a good man. There was something new here to hold his thoughts  and turn over in his mind, and he was  so preoccupied that he crept to his bed  iii a coalyard without having begged  .'the usual crust. -  ���������'It must be that I am a human being after all. If I hadn't been, the girl  wouldn't have spoken as she .did. To  have some one shake hands with me,  pavid street,  sightseeing  to call-me a. good man, to thank me  for a service���������I can't make it out. But  it's come too late. I'm- too old to  change. Nothing could lift me up now,  nothing give" mc back what . I have  lost. There's only one thing 1 can do,  and that's-to pray God I may die like  a man���������like the man I once was."  A week later, though Bones heard  nothing of it, aU London thrilled with  excitement aud indignation over a case  of kidnaping. A little girl, tho daughter of a banker, had been caught tip  at her father's very gate in the dusk  of evening ancf carried-off in a carriage.  TIte   Politician   nn  ������n   Actor.  There are multitudinous small things  which, as a little man. one would suppose must press heavily upon an eminent politician.-'.He must be civil to  all men���������civiler perhaps to the fools  than to.any. The fools he has always  with him���������always. The eminent politician must serve as the especial butt  to a vast and wonderful array of bores.  How.ho must despise'the large majority of his so called followers! . With  what scorn he must regard them in his  heart! And yet how he has to go out  of his way to solicit the favor of their  vote and interest!' How he has sometimes to palter with '* lie���������lie must  have! How he must be all things to  all men!  He is an actor as much as any actor  that ever trod the mimic stage, and be  -he sick or sad he has to give satisfaction to the audience in front if he  would keep his situation. He has to  struggle and strive to keep in his hands  Bones never read the newspapers, and  it was seldom that he was in the company of one who did.' Had he read or  heard all about the'case, however,' it  would only have been of passing interest���������just another crime to lengthen the  daily list.  One day he slouched along -David  street again. lie had been driven out  of his lodgings in the coalyard, and-as  winter was .coming on he was looking  for a vacant house, to turn into o'  nights. Between .Great George and  Canterbury streets he discovered a terrace of four houses which were for  rc-nt- ' One of them cornered on an alley, and after a careful reconuoissanut-  Bones decided that an entrance might  be effected after'dark.' He would hayc  neither bed nor fire, but lhe poorest  of the rooms would be comfortable foi  - a vagabond.  When' night  came,   Bones   was   on  hand. ��������� It' was   not   the   first   vacant  house by;a hundred in which he had1  taken up temporary quarters, and  he  knew the trick of prying open cellai  windows.   Once in the-cellar, the light  of a match  showed him ��������� the way upstairs, and as he reached.the kitchen  he was surprised to find a bit of fire  in the range and the remains of a meal  on a shelf.    Before giving tlie.matter  any thought he ate up all the food beforo  him and hugged the range until  he had ceased to<shiver.    Some one had  been ahead of him.    It was "not, a vagabond like himself, because there were  the food and the fire,,and thieves and  burglars' would have no call to enter  empty houses.    A-.balf consumed candle1 showed that the tenant had  boon  there for a night or two, find it, was  .likely ho,had a key to one of tho doors.  Bones   was   somewhat, .itiystified,   but  not frightened.'-With a lighted "candle in  his hand he set out to explpre a little  and- decide   which   room   to  slci'p  in.  After  a  look into  the   three  or   fdiu  rooms  downstairs  he mounted to^the  second, story  and. had hardly 'readied  tho   landing'   when1  he    he;ird    men's  voices  from  one of the  bedrooms, together with  what seemed the sobbing  of a child.    Out went, his candle, and  he got down on'hands,nnd knees and  crept- along to listen at lhe door.  There  were two men and a,child in that room,  and the child was weeping and plead-  ��������� ingl      ' v - .,  ^ i  No one will ever, know what. Bones  'thought or planned to do. as the door  was suddenly opened by one of the  men, and 'he was found crouching  there. He did not run' away. One  look into,the lighted room showed him  tin old table, two or three, chairs, a bed  off blankets - and on the bed the little  girl of thej lost, dog. lie*-leaped into  the room as tlie uian started-back, and  as the girl recognized him and cried  xOut the two kidnapers cursed.  There was half a minute when no  one moved. Then one of the,-men  rushed .to' the door and shut it,, and  both drew knives- and advanced upon  thp'vagabond. All her life the little-  girl will remember how his impassive  face lighted up. how he suddenly grew  straight and fall, how his eyes glistened as he seized one of the heavy  chairs and began the battle. They.  wore a pair of burly ruffians, and they  had"long,- keen knives, but it was a  fight' lasting many long minutes. As  they, stabbed and t'ln-ust he beat them  to their knees. They wounded him  again and again, aud-he left a trail of  blood as he shifted his position, but  one of them was dying and the other  had a-broken arm before the old vagabond tottered and fell, with the broken chair still clutched in his lingers.  The child.saw it" all with bated breath  ajKl wide open eyes, and. though she  did not know'of his hope, she saw that  he died*-like a man���������aye." like'the bravest of men!  With his broken bones and bruised  body and with fear of the police in his  heart the surviving ruffian made his  way out of the house, and the child  was left the long night with the dead.  When morning came, she beat upon a  window until attention was attracted  and men broke in the door and rescued  her. It was not the police who found  the kidnapers, but old Bones. U was  ,hot a public.otlicer who had eagerly  'sought a buttle with the ruffians and  yielded up his life after a heroic fight,  but simply an old vagabond of Apple-  gate market. And his eulogy and his  epitaph were the words of the child,  who saw him do battle for her:  "He was old and dirty and ragged,  but he was a man!"  the ends of fifty different strings "wJhich  are being pulled in fifty different directions and preserve his balance and. his  head amid them all.  . : And .what is theefid of it? What is  the reward of the eminent politician?  It is when one considers this question  that one is amazed to think that' any  man,should think it worth his while  to pay the penalty of political greatness'.���������All'the'Year Round. ��������� - ������   .  ,   f  ,        , An rEi)itapIi.v  On the 10th of February.

The  that    take  ot  Patent  All that  science and mechanical knowledge combined could do for the perfecting of  flour making has been applied to the  manufacture "of Ogilvie's Flour, and as  they have led in the past., so have they  the advantage  of  the future.  The evolution of flour making from  the primitive grinding of irrain in the  Fast thousands of years aero through all  its mechanical and' scientific rradations  to its present condition as indicated in  the Ogilvie mills, nroduces these two  brands which are the perfection product  of   the chief   of   cereals.  While   the   buyers   of   the   wheat   in   the  It*   Effect ' I'pon    the'   Body    and  Kind of Food  It   Demand*. -  changes of  tissue in  the  brain*  plnoi'   during    study - and-  thought are  very  important and very-  rapid.   It has lieon estimated that three  hours of brain work cause as great an  exhaustion of lhe forces of the body as,  an entire day of manual labor. >    "  This waste must',be replaced by  abundant food, but its selection rc-  quires careful consideration,and often"  self denial, for many things,which the  physical worker can eat with perfect  impunity are slow; poison to the brain  worker, who exorcises'������������������ the brain at  the expense of ,the body and rarely  gives the latter sufficient exercise to  counteract the mental strain and keep  it in condition to resist disease. Bear  in mind that, while tbe waste of the  body is much more rapid, the depriva-'  tion of physical exercise .encourages  torpidity of the voluntary functions  and renders them sluggLsh in elirninat-7 ,  ing these wastes; therefore it is of the.  utmost importance that the tasks imposed upon them should be light.  Brain workers require the most con-  centrated and easily digested foods.'  They should eat fresh beef and mutton, fish, eggs���������cooked in many forms,  but never hard boiled or fried���������oysters  and crisp salads, lettuce, chicory, tomatoes,- watercress, etc., with mayonnaise  or French dressing. They should begin  the day with fruit and make it form  the principal part of luncheon and be  very sparing in their use of cereals,  eschewing entirely white bread and  oatmeal. Their ideal luncheon,, which....  must bo light if tbey continue to work'.'  in the afternoon, is a gla.ss of milk or  cup of hot chocolate or,- better still, a  glass of,fresh buttermilk, with two or  three graham wafers or a bit of toast  and some fruit, an apple, figs or an orange.
