I have about decided that I lovo Mr. Duk-  kats the better.    Which would vou Inva?"  From the Brockville 1* ecorder.  There aro few  men  in Brockville or  vicinity better known to the general public, and there is certainly no one  held in  greater esteom by las friends, /than Mr.  L. doCarle; sr.    Mr.  deCarle came from  England to Canada forty-four years ago,  locating in   the   county   of   Glengarry.  ���������Eight-years later he removed to Brockville and has made his home hero  ever  since.    He established the large marble  business still carried on by his sons here,  and is himself one of   the   mosc   expert  stonecutters in the Dominion of Canada,  j Hois also  well known  as an   artist   in  other lines, and as   a   draughtsman has  few equals and no superiors." Ample evidence of this is afforded in the fact that  when the construction  of the Canadian  Pacific railroad was begun 'Sir Sanford  Fleming, chief   engineer   of   that   great  trans-continental ro id. requested him  to  join his staff. ' Mr. deCarle accepted tho  position at Sir Sanford's request, and remained with the company for nine years  during which time he  drew nearly, all  the profiles of the road and the plans of  the .bridges between Ottawa and Thunder  Bay.    His work was  commended as  the  best done by   any   draughtsman   in the  company's employ.'     Since loaving the  company's service Mr de Carle has lived  a retired life,  enjoying   a   well   earned  -competence at his cosy home in the  west  end of tho town.    Mr. deCarle is possessed of a rugged constitution and had always enjoyed the best of health, uiitil the  fall of 1896.    Then he was stricken  with  an affection of the limbs which much alarmed him.    Speaking with a RECORDER  representative the other day, the conversation happened to turn upon this event,  and circumstances connected   therewith  can best be told in his own words.   "Last  fall" said hc,tf"my legs became in such a  condition that when 1 sat down I had no  power,over them. I could not move them  one way or the other, and was  naturally  much alarmed.    I was advise d to try Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.      I   had' read  of  their curing cases similar to mine and so  I decided to give them a trial.     I   purchased a supply of   the   pills   and   commenced taking them according to  directions.     I had only  taken them a short  time when I found that  I was regaining  the use of my legs and could raiso one  up  and cross tlie other  without  much- difficulty.    I also remarked to my wife that  the pills were doing  me much good, and  she was   both   surprised  and   delighted  when I showed her with what ease I could  move my limbs.    I continued taking the  pills for about a month and by that time  I had as full control of rny legs as I ever  had���������in fact was  completely cured.     I  have never had a symptom  of  the trouble since, a> d am now as well as ever I  was.    I attribute my cure entirely to Dr.'  Williams1 Pink Pills.

Children early learn to adopt tho manners and tho speech of tho elder brother;  the small boy is educated by the one who  is at college or in business muoh more  than by his governess or his tutor. Said a  wise observer once: "If only you can get  your eldest son well started, if ho is manly, truthful and of high principles, rhe  others in the family follow right on in the  s.-imo direction. The judicious father will  take great pains with his oldest boy."  In a neighborhood or a school the large  boys .influencesocial opinion and set the  fashion for the rest. Always...-there is  some larger boy whom the little lad greatly ndnm-es.'wbo is his model, whose smile  or whose frown makes or unmakes his  .happiness.* Tho big brother does not know  'it, but he is in this changeful world the  ono personngG whoso scepter never totters,  whoso popularity never wanes and who  never goes out of fashion.  To his sisters he has the opportunity of  showing chivalry, kindness and tho deference of the stronger to the weaker. To  tho baby of tho household ho is little short  of a king. Tho big brother, bless his heart;,  when ho" is n nice, obliging, affectionate  and generous fellow, is as important a  mom her of society as any one who can be  mentioned.  If, as sometimes happens, ho is either a  bully or a orw/ird, then ho is more con--  temptiblo than ho would ho if he had been  born in a less fortunate order in tho family, for ho has, so to speak, broken faith  with all that was expected of him.���������-Harper's Bazar.    ,  Ueatlng: Janus' Best Record.

AND MRS. ALGERNON SMITH  DISPOSED  OF A NUISANCE.  They Couldn't Sell tho Things, Couldn't  Give Theni Away and Were Not Permitted to Lose Them���������Finally Smith Thought  of the Furnace, and All Is Well.  A  rag  peddler -was slowly passing  Mrs. Algernon Smith's house when that  good "woman hailed him.  "How much for old shoes?"  "Helluv a cent a pount  for vool  an  ".'   totton.   I gan't puy ole shoes."  i    -   "But won't yon  give me something  for them?"  "Any iron or pottles yon vant to sell,  lady?   Yon vant  to sell dose t'ings vat  * you haf on?   Helluv a cent a ponnt.    I  ., gan no more gif.   I vant not close shoes,  not for notlings.   Nettings else?"  , Mrs.   Smith indignantly  closed   the  window.  When her husband came home  .at night, she said:  "Algernon, I want you to take a lot  of old shoes I'vo dono up in a package  and throw them away. "  "Why  don't yon  give them to  the  ���������washerwoman?" asked Mr.   Smith.  VShe won't have them���������says they're  ������������������ not her kind of shoes,'' was the answer.  "They are  all  either too  large or  too  small, the heels aro  too high, and they  are the wrong number. -1 offered them  to  a tramp, and he said when he went  into the shoe business he would let me  <���������    know���������he wasn't buying misfits yet. "  "I like  his. impudence.    Where are  they?   I'll make short work of them,",  said   Mr.- Smith; and  he  took  the big  bundle his wife gave hini and went out.  In 15 minutes he was back.  ,    "So  you  got rid of 'them," said his  wife  joyfully.    "I  think there was an  accumulation', of six years in that lot.  . Some  of  them I had given to  peoplo  - who were begging at the door,, but* I always found them again nexc day in tho  lot. Old shoes are like cats, if you send  them away they always come back.''  "The cat won't comeback this time,"  said her husband.   ' 'I dumped them in a  - vacant lot and ran. After this when  you buy a pair of new shoes leave your  old ones at tho store. "  Next morning as Mrs. Smith was doing her housework tho door bell rang.  "I guess maybe you've had a burglary, '���������' said the cheery voico of a man  who stood on the steps and seemed in a  hurry. "I found this bundle, with your  name and address on it, when I was  looking over my lot today." ��������� ��������� -  ��������� Mrs. Smith took the bundle and feebly thanked him. When Algernon came  home, sho told him. He said there were  more"ways of, killing a cat than of ehok: ,  ing her v/ith butter, and after supper he  took up the bundle and went out.  Ho knew of a nice dark place down  near a church where ho could slide in  and drop that load of shoes without being seen. Ho had taken tho precaution  to tear off the address and had changed  ��������� the shape of tho bundle As ho deposited it in tho archway of this dark corner  a heavy hand was laid on his shoulder.  "No, you.don't. Ino abandonment of  the little innocent when you get tired  of your own liesh and blood. Pick up  the poor thing new or I'll club ye. "  ,It was the new policeman on. that  beat, and he didn't know Mr. Smith.  Ho listened to his explanation with a  most aggressive and unbelieving air.  "Lemmo see the kid," ho demanded,  and when  tho  "kid" proved  to be kid.  shoes he grow still angrier.  "I've a mind to run vein for disturbing the peace and rcsistihg  an officer,"  . he said, but finally permitted  Smith to  take his bundle and go home.  The next night a smudge came out of  the Smiths' chimney, and the neighbors  held their noses. About midnight a  loud rapping was heard at the front  door, and a light in the basement was  hastily extinguished. Mr. Smith answered the summons, while Mrs. Smith  hid in the coal cellar. A patrol wagon  full of policemen was at tho door. One  of them was on tho steps.  "Arc you running a glue factory here  without a license?" ho demanded of  Smith.  "Then what is that infernal odor?  Your neighbors havo telephoned that  you -were making yourself a nuisance  and want you aba ted."  Smith took the crowd in and told his  story���������how they had put those shoes in  the garbage box and had them turned  out again and how they had tried to sell  them or give them away and finally to  lose them. Then he showed the police to  the basement and opened the door of the  furnace, whero the shoes were being  cremated. Then he produced some bottles v/ith long necks that, were sent for  his birthday, and for half an hour ho  was busy pulling corks. After some  time he released Mrs. Smith from, tho  eoal cellar. ���������  "Are they gone?" she gasped.'  "Tho police?"  "No, no; the shoe's."  "Every scrap reduced to ashes.'*  They embraced, and happiness reigned  in   the    Smith   household. ��������� Chicago  Times-Herald.  got ricfTwitir tneir" norse, muie ana ox  shoeing, and  the wagon  and tho other  repair work which they did.    Most of  the blacksmiths combined with  their  other work wagon repairing  and even  wagon making.    There were very few  big wagon factories in those davs. and  a gooa nana maae wagon cost Dig money. When they were doing nothing else,  they would  make wagons,   and when  there was  lots  of  transient work  tho  wagons had to wait.  . This  state line  shop was  a busy place..  There was no  tavern  there, but  the  blacksmith also  had a cider press, and he'made the cider  for all  the farmers for miles around.  But neither  this nor the profits of his  shop  could account for the rapid way  in which he accumulated wealth. As is  well known, apple cider, if  allowed to  stand long enough, will become' 'hard,''  and after that it will turn into vinegar.  "This cider dealer always had plenty  of  hard cider on hand, but never had  any vinegar for sale.    The farmers and  others who  stopped at  his placo could  always get a drink of hard cider, which  they took out of a tin dipper at 10 cents  a drink, and  the size of  the drink was  something  which attracted very little  attention.  Hardly any kind of beverage  is more intoxicating than'hard cider.' It  is  a good deal like champagne in one  respect.    You can drink a great deal of  it  one day, and, the next day you will  be  awfully sick  and sorry, and a good  deal  drunker  than when  you went' to  bed.  The blacksmith required no license  to  sell hard cider, and  he worked the  game  to  the limit.   His  place became  very  popular,   and   the  farmers came  from many miles around in both  states  to  get  their  horses  shod. at his place.  Many of them would come home-drunk,  and their wives began to protest.   They  always had to havo some excuse for having visited  the  state line  shop, and so  the blacksmith,, after  supplying them  with  a few dipperfuls  of hard cider,  would take the  shoes off their beasts  and  put1 on  new ones,  whether they  needed  it  or not.   For this service he  would charge a good round price, while  in  many  instances it was noticed  he  made no charge for the cider.  "But, as is the way of all flesh, this  blacksmith died one day, and then his  business secrets came out. He left an  estate of over $80,000, and in the cellar  of tho cider press a great number of  empty whisky barrels were found. For  years he had been putting whisky into  his cider and had been setting ,new  shoes on nearly every horse which camo  along, willy nilly. "���������Washington Star.  STRUNG UP A JUDGE.  REFUSED   TO    GIVE    HIS   NAME   AND  '   WAS  HUNG   BY THE  THUMBS.  Methods of tho Blind.  The blind man has to depend almost  entirely'on tho accuracy of his ears to  guide.him wherever he may wish to go,  and it is remarkable in what a short-  time he becomes familiar with a new-  locality and fresh surroundings.  Few people aro aware of the powers  of the ear, but the . blind, through constant exercise of that organ, are able to  discover objects almost as rapidly as a  seeing person. '  * For instance, when walking in a perfect calm, he can ascertain the proximity of objects by the feeling of the atmosphere upon his face. It would seem  at first that the echo given back, were  it only from his breathing, might be  sensible to his ear, but it has been ascertained by experiment that a blind  man with his ears stopped can tell when  any largo object is close to his face,  even when it approaches so slowly as  not to cause any sensible current of air.  When he is walking along the street,  ho can tell whether it is wide or narrow, whether the houses aro high or  low, if any opening which he may be  passing is a court closed up at the end  or whether it has an outlet to another  street, and he can tell by the sound of  his footsteps in what lane, or court, or  square he is.  He goes along boldly, seeming to see  with his ears and to have landmarks in.  tho air. Of course no blind man likes  to go over a new route unattended, but  after he has traversed it once he knows  every  point  of  importance  to him.  RESOURCEFUL SMITH.

"I liv-ed at a little crossroads hamlet  which was not even a postoffice, on the  line between New York state and Pennsylvania, '' said a story teller co a Sioux  City Journal reporter.

H. Smith was usually present to sec  the morning papers dispatched, and one  morning something at one of the offices  had gone wrong, so that there was great  risk of that paper missing the trains.  Mr. Smith, recognizing the difficulty,  threw off his coat, worked away as hard  as any of his subordinates and had the  satisfaction of seeing the vans leave  v/ith just time to catch the trains.  He was afterward leaning over one of  the tables reading a paper, still in his  shirt sleeves, when ono of the men,  mistaking him for a mate, gave him a  resounding smack on his. broad back,  exclaiming:  "Well, Jack, old man, we got that  lot away smartly." When "W. H."  raised himself, the man rushed away,  terrified by his blunder.  On coming on duty at night the man  received a note addressed to him, which  b.������j concluded contained the "sack, " but  to his surpirse it was to inform him  that from the end of that week he  would be a foreman. "W. H." had  sense enough to see that a man who was  so delighted at having accomplished a  difficult task for his employers was  made of the right stuff.���������Pearson's  Weekly.

How a Tonne Ueutetfant Carried Out  Orders and Came Near Getting Into  Trouble���������President Lincoln Stood by  tho Soldier Who Did Eis Duty. r  "I was only 19 years of ago and held  ft lieutenant's commission in the Fifth  infantry when an event occurred which  pave me a great deal of unsought notoriety, "said a department official the  other night. "Not only was' the notoriety unsought, but it was exceedingly  undesirable," he added, "for it almost  made an old man of me in a singlo**day.  It was an experience calculated to try  the discipline and determination of any  young officer."  "What Iind of an experience did you  have?"  "I had merely a routine duty to perform, but it was exciting. Tho regiment  was stationed at Santa Fo, and tho department-was under martial law. Tho  war had just commenced, and people  were averse to obeying military orders,  but they learned obedience very soon.  It was orderedo that no person should  enter the city of Santa Fe nor depart  from'it without registering his name  with the -i provost marshal., The order  was -positive and was'rigidly enforced.  One afternoon, when I was officer of  tho day and, having attended .to my  duties,, was lying down "in- my tent  reading a book, an orderly reported that  there was a man in the custody of tho  provost marshal who refused to givo(his  name. Putting aside my book, I donned  my' uniform and sash and proceeded to  tho guardhouse. - -    '���������  '' There, in the midst of as tough a  looking gang as one ever saw, stood a  woll dressed, distinguished looking gentleman,. When I asked hhn why he was  in custody, ho informed mo that ho was  under .arrest bccatise ho, had refused to  givo his name or to register with the  provost marshal. When I politely requested him to go with mo and register, ho responded, 'You know mo well  enough' and do not need ask my name.'  When I assured him that I had never  seen him before and I requested him to  comply with tho order under which I  was-acting, ho refused indignantly to  do so. , \  "I then .ordered the guards to tako  him . to the parade ground and tie him  to the flagstaff. Upon arriving there I  again begged him to bo reasonable and '  give his name, but he obstinately refused to do so. Then I ordered the men  to tic "-'him up by the thumbs. After  leaving him in that position for three  minutes ho was let down, but again remained obstinately silent. Ho was  drawn up again, and after leaving him  in that painful' position nearly ten minutes ho was let down, but scornfully  declined to answer my most polite re-  qucst- to givo me his name. I begged  hini to relievo mc of the necessity of  resorting to moro force and to relieve  himself of further humiliation and physical pain, but he scorned me. There I  was on tho parade ground with that  gentleman, who was manifestly of moro  than ordinary ability and consequence  in tho world, and in the presence of the  regimental staff, I, a 3roung officer, a  mere stripling, and yet the officer of  tho day, was trying to compel him to  give his name in accordance with the  order of the commanding officer of the  department.  "He remained stolidly silent, and  then I ordered the guards to buck and  gag him. It was a painful scene, which  I shall never forget. Tho soldiers did  their duty, bound him in an uncomfortable position and gagged him so tightly  that the blood ran from his mouth. That  was more than I had intended to be  done tho first time, and it was more  than I could bear to -see, so I ordered  his release.  "As he stood up, trembling with  pain, passion and humiliation, he said:  'I am Joseph G. Knapp, chief justice of  the supreme court of the territory of  New Mexico.' I immediately ordered  his release from custody, and he returned to the Hotel Fonda, where he  had registered upon his arrival. * His  presence in Santa Fe was no secret, and  nearly everybody- knew him. Therefore  he may have reasoned that I knew him  and was merely making a parade of my  authority needlessly in asking him his  name and compelling him to , give it.  You may bo very sure that I regretted  the occurrence when I heard him an-  nonnco his name, his title and his official standing, as, indeed, I had sincerely regretted the entire scene from the  first."  "Was  anything  done  about it officially?" '��������� ���������  '' Vv c-11,1 should say so! Colonel Carle-  Jon, commanding the post, wrote a. report of the affair, which he characterized as brutal, and recommended pro-,  e'eodincs against me. although he knew  that 1 baa oniy etone my duty in tne  premises. If an obscure citizen had refused to give his name, as Judge Knapp  had done. Colonel Carleton would have  commended my course. As it was,  Judge Knapp and Colonel Carleton  were bosom friends and had been for  years. Therefore he was biased in the  matter. The papers were finally laid  before President Lincoln, who had meantime been seen by some of my friends,  who  told  him  the  true  story  of  the  affair, ana  tne president wrote on tne  back of Colonel Carleton's report:  This young man has, simply done his duty  and is released from arrest.

The relative rates of'' American Qnd  British  naval officers' pay in* compari-,  son are as follows: Naval cadet, $500;  midshipman, ������32, about $160; ensign,  $1,200; sublieutenant,, ������91, about $455,  with  extras  as navigator,   ������45, about  $225; lieutenant, junior grade, $1,800;  lieutenant, ������182 to ������256, about $900 to  $1,200, with  extras  up -to  ������73, about  ������365;   lieutenant,'  $2,400;  lieutenants  in command, ������201  to  ������274, about $1,-  005 to $1,370, with.cxtras  from ������84 to  ������141, about  ������420  to  $705; lieutenant  commander,  $2,S0O;  commander,, $3, -  COO; commander,  ������365, "about  $1,825,  with extras 'to  ������141, about $705; captain,   $4,500;'captain,   ������410   to  ������602,  about  $2,050  to  $3,010,   with   extras  from ������91 to ������328, about ������455 to $1,040.  Thus only the senior captain in the British navy, w.ith full allowanco of extras,  receives more than our junior captain.  But after one gets .'to bo captain-things >  change.   In the first placo every British  captain  becomes a  rear admiral in a  few years, as tho rank of commodore is  simply temporary, and  a rear admiral  starts with  ������1,642 (about' $8,210) and  may wind up with ������2,737 (about $13.-  685).  Our rear admirals only get $6,000  at most, whilo'their comrades of  equal  rank iu the army, the  major generals,  get $7,500.   Then the,British sailor has  two and sometimes  three steps after lie  gets his flag. < He  may become vice admiral, with pay ranging -from  $12,775  to $15,510, and even admiral; with pay  and allowances of  $17,100 to $19,835.

Such a man-is a  mollah, one of a class that exercises an influence over tlie inhabitants of the Afghan  hills so passionate and wide that to Europeans it is beyond belief. , "  V . , The mollahs are collectively known as  the  ulima,   ' or    learned^    They arc ��������� the  "    schoolmasters, lawyers^ judges, as well as  the .priests, many 'of i them being men of  great ability and scholarship, and.as they  "���������   are all passionately dcvotccL.to their order  v, ,it cannot be said that their influence is al-  ��������� together ^cvil.    They are great peacemakers ih a land where fighting is the breath  of a- man's  nostrils.    I once saw ono of  them in Lalpoorah. rush between two bod-  i' ios of Mohmurids who were drawn up to  attack'   each,' other,   and,   by passionate  prayers to them to remember their common God and their1 common   country,  make those desperate men .forget   their  purpose and go away as quietly as fright-  ,   ened schoolboys.  , The position of .mollah is conferred on  such candidates as havo undergone a special course of  study iii  tho  intricate Mo-  ' hammedan law and successfully passed an  examination therein.    The principal part  .   of the ceremony consists of the most saintly  mollah present ��������� investing   the novico  with the wide flowing gown of white cotton and the peculiarly shaped turban.  ' .     The mollahs marry and live like tho  1  laity in most particulars, though some of  .** them assume the most .ridiculous'austeri-  - ty, frowning,on the simplest amusements  and even ��������� condemning all music, except -  .   tho warlike drum  and trumpet, as being  effeminate.    To such men the merry fid-c  '   die or the sighing lute is as tho horns of  the evil one.  Ono rich source of revenuo with tho  priesthood is its flno collection of charms  and incantations. It is no uncommon  sight to sec an ancient Af ridi or Mohmund  sitting with a mollah and vigorously repeating a charm or performing a subtle  incantation to enable him to fix the affections of somo fair lady who is not enamored of his gray hairs.  A mollah's most sensitive point is the  dignity oi' his office. When that is outraged, there is trouble in the land. He  calls tho brethren to a council. They suspend all tho rites of public worship, denounce their enemy as a dog and an infidel, cover him and his people witli their  maledictions and practically excommunicato hiin. If this docs not bring the unhappy man to his senses, tho mollahs don  ' their sacred robes, and, carrying the green  standard-of tho prophet, go up and down  throughout the land proclaiming the Mohammedan worcry and calling on the  faithful to avenge the honor of the apostle  of tho prophet. To those who flock to their  sido they promise eternal bliss; to those  who ignore their appeals, everlasting torture. The mollah's. voice is not raised in  vain. Ho soon has a frantic army following tho green flag, willing to go anywhere  and do anything its leader pleases.  When  a mollah   dies, the place of his  death becomes  a sacred shrine at which  miraolcs arc worked.    There is not a village throughout the whole Pathan country which has not  its  holy spot to which  the sick, the halt and the blind resort for  relief.    In this connection a curious story  is told of one of tlie sections of Bonervals.  It had long been a source of grief to the  inhabitants of the village that no holy  man had ever  been  good enough to die  among them.    Tho consequent absence of  a miracle working shrine had degraded  them in the eyes  of  their neighbors, who  looked on them as a, sot  of wretches so  abandoned that no saint would end his  days  in  their midst.    The   men  of tho  village determined tb put an end to this  degrading   suspicion  in  a characteristic  oriental method.    There was living in a  distant  town a mollah with, the  highest  reputation for holiness.     A   deputation  from the benighted village waited'on this  mollah and implored him to shed the light  of his countenance on them for a few days.  The priest was so flattered at this testimony to his piety that ho gladly consented.    He was entertained on his arrival to  a considerable feast.    When the banquet  hod ended, the chief rose and solemnly informed their guest of the sad condition of  the villagers through no  holy  man ever  having died in ; their midst, adding that  they  intended to end so unfortunate a  state of things by killing their visitor. As  his soul would at once pass to paradise,  and  as the  scene of his death would become a miracle working  shrine, they did  not consider ho had anything to complain  of.���������St. James Gazette.  ones.

Large nocks of  the Birds That Perform  Wonderful Evolutions.  Remarkable as are the results of training as' exhibited in the speed of modern  pigeons, they do not compare with the  wonderful evolution performed by these  birds in tho last centuries in Italy. There"  were at that time men who devoted themselves to pigeon' training, and the art was.  supposed to find its perfection in certain-  families'.and to be handed down 'from  generation to generation.. The u art con-  sistcdln training large flocks of pigeons  to.obey their owner and'tp perform certain  evolutions in theair. In tho earliest days  in India birds were trained to fight opposing bands. < When a pigeon tournament  was ih progress,* the owners ascended  some lofty buildings and conducted, tho  performance by the aid- of flags, and in  obedience to their signals flocks of birds  of | different color would wheel, rise, dive  and intermingle to separate again and go  through a number of interesting movements that were remarkable for their  beauty. Prizes were offered for the most  beautifully novel'figures. '   ,       "  In India, in early times, where the sport  of pigeon flying originated, the object of  - the. flights was often a sanguinary one,  the owners ol the various flocks endeavoring to accomplish 'tho destruction of the  others. Thus, tho birds of one band would  carry bombs with a fuse hanging to their  '* claws, and at the command of their "masters would, sweep down^'bver their "opponents and tho bomb .would'drop,,among,  them and explode. Others bore sharp  knives, two1 edged, suspended from their  claws, and were made to dash among their  antagonists and endeavor to cut them to  pieces, an cosy matter when birds were in  rapid motion.

The Snake In tlie Bible.  Mythology teaches us that tho serpent  has been worshiped as a god, representing  viciousness, deceit, the devil, guile and  deception. By common consent it represents a liar or seducer or^deceiver. Moses  represented the snr.ke as a liar. In persuading Eve to disobey Gcd's command  and injunction not to eat the fruit of life  and knowledge it told a lie without benefit to itself and used its persuasive powers  to mislead Eve, that she and Adam would  be like God, although not sure or positive  of that fact. The first pair only obtained  some limited knowledge and that they  must make the first advances in civilization and procure clothing to protect themselves against heat and cold.  Why the serpent was so hard punished  for telling the lie, which was no benefit to  it, can only be accounted for by tho idea  that Moses wanted to impress upon man  that it is beneficial neither to self nor to  others to promise a reward for doing a  certain thing when no re%vard would follow. The second instance where tho snake  appears in history was when the Lord  commanded Moses to go to the king of  Egypt and deliver his message to release  the .Tows from bondage Then Moses  pleaded to bo excused on account of his  weakness in speech. Had the Lord tested  Moses as he did Abraham?  Mo-*-es, full of faith, was ready to do  what the Lord commanded. He was told  to throw down his staff. It would become  a eerp-iEt. Mioses became frightened and  scared. Still, when tbe Lord told him to  take hold of the snake by its tail, he submitted at once and showed his perfect  trust in God and his word.

The English language is not regarded  with affection by the people of tho European continent who are under the necessity of learning it. ��������� Its diverse origin has  laden it with an immense number of inconsistencies, contradictions' and duplications and, above all, with an irregular  and inexplicable system of spelling. Tho  Germans are accustomed to speak of the  English language as "a monster having  two mouths, with ono of which it speaks  German and with tho other Latin."  The Slavonic people of central Europe,  who^have always had occasion to master  many languages and who for that reason  are good linguists, have a story to account  for the inconsistencies of English which is  still more uncomplimentary to our mother  tonKue.  This story, which we find in "The Outgoing Turk," by H. C. Thomson, tells  that when the Lord made the different  nations he gave men no tongues at all,  and when they came and dumbly begged  for them he compassionately took a piece  of meat and cut it into slices, giving each  one a slice to serve as a tongue.  This served well enough, but when tho  meat was all given away the Englishman,  who had either lazilv or   conteniDtuously  Eedticking:.  ncre i.s a practical way in which to clean  feather bed ticking and to air and renovate  the feathers: Take two sheets and sew them  up so as to form a case. Make an opening,  say, a yard wide, in the tick, and a second  opening, of the same' width in the caso  made of the two sheets. Sew these two  openings together so that they will not  rip, and shake the feathers out of the tick  into the clean sheet case. When the feathers have all been emptied, sew up the sheet  case, after separating ib from tho tick, and  put the feathers out, on the roof in tho  shade for an airing of several days, turning the caso every day. Do not placo it  where the sun will shine on the feathers,  for it will cause an oiliness to come out  which will make the feathers heavy and  will produce an unpleasant odor. Have  the original tick thoroughly washed, rinsed  and dried. .. Before returning the feathera  to it in the same way in which they wero  removed hang the sheet case up for a day  so th'e wind may blow through the feathers. This will make them light, and when  returned to the tick the feather bed will bo  as good as new.���������New York Tribune.  Draft.

The deadly silence was  broken  hy the wash of a small  boat approaching  us.    She ran close  up  under  the star of  the Mernmar,  and fired  carrying away  the Merrimac's mdder,    That is why the.  collier did   not sink   across the channel.  -    ��������������� *���������  Then , orf up   the   channel   it was ' very  exciting. A picket boat had given alarm,  and the guns of the Vizcaya and shore  batteries were turned on us. Mines and  torpedqes were exploded all around us.  \V7hen the ship was in position we found  the rudder gone. I called the men on'  deck, and launched a boat. It tpuched  off the explosives; at same moment two  torpedoes, which were fired from the  Reina Mercedes struck the collier. Can  not say whether our explosives or Spanish torpedoes did the work; but the  Merrimac was lifted out of the water and  rent asunder. As she went down we  scrambled overboard. Attempted to get  out in a boat, but with a strong tide tunning, day light found us still struggling  in the water. The Spaniards saw us  and sent a boat and picked us up. We  were ti-ken aboard the Reina Mercedes,  and later sent to Monro Castle.  Trouble *jvith Phillippines.
