Between the two classes of upper  and under servitors in England the line  of demarcation is drawn with even  greater sharpness than between those  of master and mistress. Often for the  meat course these two classes dine together in' the servants' hall. When  this is the case absolute silence is preserved during the time, as it is a point  of honor with the upper class, composed of butler, lady's maid, groom of  chambers, valet, housekeeper, etc., not  to share household secrets with those  below the salt, and also they have no  mind to listen to the prattle of their inferiors. For subsequen't'eourses the upper servants repair to the '"housekeeper's room," where are spread relishes  and desserts superior to those provided,  for the others.' and conversation fgoes  on unchecked. At the present day this  "housekeeper's room" is the scene of  regular late dinners, at which visiting  servants, if of the "upper class," are  present. At the servants' parties, in-order to avoid confusion, it is customary  for, thern to adopt the names of their  masters, so that while real dukes and'  duchesses feast above stairs their' duplicates or doubles masquerade below.  Looking; Glasses.  In the mirrors of today the light i8  reflected'by a layer of-silver or an  amalgam of "tin, but a proportion of  light is lost in the process of. reflection,  and the image is less luminous than  the, original. ^ - .'-  The value of a'looking glass is usual-'  Iy estimated by the thickness of the  glass, because the thicker it is the  stronger it must be. But speaking scientifically thick, glasses , ar'ei defective;  because the outlines;of the image re;'  fleeted are less clearly defined.  Thero are really three reflections and  consequently   three , images   in -every  glass' mirror, one ��������� from -the upper surface of the glass, the second from the  lower surface and ,the third, from" tb.6  metallic layer at'the back. ,  -An ideal .mirror is one with a perfectly flat surface, but it is only possible to obtain this result in compara  "tively small glasses. The larger glasses  do not reflect a true' image, because it  is not possible to make them quite fiat.

A vener-  Secret   Method*   That  Were   L'^ed  by  Irish   Animal  Tamers.  Ireland, as well as the far north of  Scotland; had���������possibly - still has���������its  "horse whisperers," though the "broth-  erings" which give such permanence  and geniality.-to the Scottish "plowman's whisper" never seem to have existed in the sister island. Irish "whisperers" have been lonely men, whose  secret has generally died with them,  says the Golden Penny.  The' most famous "whisperer" of  modern times was James Sullivan of  Duntiallow. No horse was ever  brought to Sullivan which he did not  permanently tame. Ordinarily restive  animals he would master in a few (minutes. For'exceptionally vicious horses  he took about half an, hour, during  which time he shut the stable door and  forbade any one tojopen it till he gave  the signal. When'the'door was opened  the horse was still' lying down and  Sullivan by his side, playing with him  as a child does ,with a puppy. There  was no tying up of the foreleg or any  other visible, means of coerciqn. How  his ascendency was obtained no one  could tell.". ,_  A. .successor (,of 'Sullivan named  O'Hara became almost equally famous.  .and was often urged to explain what  .was the secret of his, influence. But  O'Hara treated his questioners as Samson did the Philistines, deluding them  with _various and unsatisfactory answers. '' At one time, for instance, he  said the secret lay in "rocking" the  horse���������putting one hand,firmly on his  crupper, and with the",other grasping  his shoulder and then swaying him,to  and fro, gently at first and gradually'  increasing the, motion till you, throw  himv At another time he protested, that  his ��������� plan was .to bite the animal's ear.  Both these .are well known jockey  tricks. Tlie most stubborn horse, they  , say, will be wholly subdued by being  thrown twice* or thrice, and if you can  get a vicious horse's ear'between your  teeth and bite hard youtare his master  arid he your submissive slave from that  time forward. As to the idea that the  "whisperer" works by kindness, it  stands to reason that that method supposes the entire education of the animal'to be in your hands. If you have  only half an hour to do your work in,  you must show, overmastering power  as well as kindly feelings. A horse  whose temper has'" been spoiled by  chronic bad treatment looks on all men  alike as tyrants and bullies. ^  OUR  INSTINCT TO CHEW.  EFFICACY OF'.THE. ONION.  he got wealthy."

A'German biologist has been investigating the question of the activity of  animal bodies after death and has published some suggestive conclusions." It  appears that death is not instantaneous throughout tho physical organism,  for it has been observed tbat many of  the different tissues continue active for  a considerable period" after the time  when the animal is assumed to be dead,  particularly in the case of the lower animals. Cells from the brain of a frog,  for example, have been kept alive for  over a week when held in certain solutions, and the heart of a frog has been  knoAvn to beat for many hours after being removed from the dead body. The  hearts of turtles and snakes will beat  for days or even a week after death.  His Real Worth..

Apply It Outside and Inside and Cure  i a  Cold.  The idea of an onion cure may not  strike* the fancy of tlie aesthetic. However, the experience of those who have  tried it "is that it works wonders in restoring a racked system to its normal  state again. There are three kinds of  doses in the onion cure, or three onion  cures, as you choose to put it. One is a  diet of onions, the other is onion plasters and the third is onion sirup.  It is claimed by those who believe in  the onion cure that a bad cold can be  broken up if the patient will stay indoors and feed on a liberal diet of  onions. It need not be an exclusive'  diet, but a liberal one. For instance,  an onion cure breakfast includes a  poached egg on toast, three tablespoon-  fuls of fried onions and a cup of coffee.  Luncheon of sandwiches, made of Eos-  ton brown bread, buttered and filled  with finely chopped raw onions,''seasoned with salt and pepper, makes the  second meal on the schedule. For supper the onions may be fried as for  breakfast and eaten with a chop and a  baked potato.  The strange efficacy of onions is well  known to the singers of Italy and  Spain, who eat them every day to improve the quality of their voices and  keep them smooth. Onion plasters are  prescribed to break up. hard coughs.  They are made of fried onions placed  between two pieces of old muslin. The  plaster is kept quite hot until the patient is snugly in bed, wThen it is placed  on the chest to stay overnight. Onion  sirup is a dose that can be bought of  any druggist and is claimed by some to  be unequaled as a cure for a cold in the  chest.  All this is probably quite true. For  to be done up with onions, both inside  and out, would be enough certainly to  chase  out any  self respecting cold.  Et Manifests  Itself In Numerous and  Curious   Ways.  Seeing that the maxillary apparatus  of man has for long ages past been put  to vigorous use, it is not surprising that  the need to exercise it should express  itself as a powerful instinct. This instinct manifests, itself in many and  curious ways. During the early months  of life the natural function of feeding  at the breast provides the infant's  jawsy tongue and lips with all the needful exercise. This bottle feeding fails  to do, and we frequently find bottle fed  children seeking to satisfy the natural  instinct by sucking their thumbs, fingers or any convenient object at hand.  The teeth are a provision for biting  hard foods, but even before they actually appear we find the child seeking  to exercise his toothless gums on any  hard substance he can lay hold-of,'and  there can be no doubt tbat- exercise of  this kind tends to facilitate the eruption of the'teeth, a truth indeed recognized universally, whether by the primitive mother who strings tbe -tooth of  some wild animal round the neck of  her infant or the up to date parent  who provides her child with a bejewel-  ed ivory or coral bauble.  When the teeth have , erupted, tlie  masticatory instinct findS* among primitive peoples abundant satisfaction 'in  the-chewing of the coarse,'hard foods  which constitute their dietary; but'  among us moderns, ��������� subsisting, as' we  do, mainly on soft foods, affording but,  little exercise for tho masticatory apparatus, it does not find its proper expression, and thus tends to die out.,  Nevertheless it dies a hard death and  long continues to assert'itself. Witness  the tendency of children to bite their  pencils and penholders'. ' I have known  a child to gnaw ^.through y a bone^pen-  holder much in the same way as -a,  carnivorous animal gnaws at a bone.   -  This instinct to' chew for chewing's  sake manifests itself all over tbe world.  In our own country not only do children bite' pencils and penholders, but  they will chew ���������small pieces of india  rubber for hours together. The practice of gum chewing, so common among  our American cousins, evidently comes  dowrn from faroff limes, for the primitive Australians chew several kinds of  gum, attributing to'- them nutrient  qualities, and the Patagonians are said  to keep their teeth white and clean by  chewing matri.' a, gum which exudes  from the incense bush. '      ,,      r   '  SAVED  HIS  FINGER.  The   Faithful   Brahman   Pelt,   How  ,  ever,  That  He  Kad  _ost  Caste.  , One   day   a   Brahman    accidentally;  touched some uncleaii object with his  little finger. The'Brahman thought that  nowr, his little finger having become unclean, any substance  which it would  touch would be also' rendered unclean  and thus'make him an unclean man.  Seeing ,no other way to get out of tbe  scrape he resolved to "get the offending''  member amputated. Forthwith he went  to a carpenter and  explained to, hira,  that unless the finger was" cut off he  (the'Brahman) was unable to take food.  The carpenter tried  to dissuade  the  devotee and urged that an application'  of some drops of water from the sm-.,  cred river Gunga would make the fin- -  ger once more holy, but the Brahman  persisted.  He said that the finger waa  of no use to him any longer and that  be would not rest until it was severed.  ' As a final recourse the carpenter resolved to play his awkward customer a  trick. He told the Brahman to put his  finger on an anvil and' to look to the  sky while' the wound was inflicted.  The Brahman did so. Tbf carpenter  took up a hatchet and gave the finger  a smart blow with the back of it This  elicited a,cry of pain from the pa-,  tient, who at once put the finger in his  mouth to allay the agony. The carpenter, laughing, explained to" the Brahman, that the blow had missed and the  little finger was still entire; and,'worst  of all, the Brahman had defiled himself  by putting the finger into his mouth.  The obliging operator, moreover, offered to'perform the operation once more,  but the Brahman bad had enough pais -  for the nonce and declined with thanks.  v-i  CHINESE -PROVERBS.  If, the roots be  left, the grass will  grow-again.'   ,   ' "r<  One'lash to a good horse; one word  to a wise man.  The"'gods cannot help a man who  loses opportunities.  Riches come better after poverty  than poverty after riches.  Dig a well before you are thirty. Be  prepared for contingencies.  Tho error of one moment becomes  the sorrow of a whole lifetime.  Borrowed money makes time short;  working for others makes it long.  t The gem cannot be polished without  friction nor the man^perfected without  trials.  Large fowls will not eat small grain.  Great mandarins are not content with  little-bribes.  A wise, man adapts himself to circumstances as water shapes itself to  the vessel that contains it.  The best thing is to be respected and  tbe next is to be loved. It is bad to be  bated, but worse still to be despised.  Some Mustache History.

Few poets had more admirers among  women than Whittier bad, and this admiration frequents took personal form.  One day his sister, in her slow,. Quaker  fashion, was describing these eruptions. "Thee hast no idea," she said,  "of the. time Greenleaf spends in trying  to lose these people on the streets.  Sometimes he comes home and says,  'Well, sister, I bad hard work to lose  him, but I have lost him.'" To this  Whittier pathetically added, "But I can  never lose a her."  MirrorH.  The first record concerning mirrors  dates back to the days of the venerable  Moses, and they wero made of brass.  When the Spaniards lauded in South  America they found mirrors of polished  black stone in use among the natives.  In the fifteenth century the first glass  mirrors were made in Germany by a  blowpipe, and were convex. The first  manufactory of glass mirrors for sale  was established in Venice early in the  sixteenth century. ��������� In the reign of  James I. men, women and children  wore looking glasses publicly, the men  as brooches &vr ornaments in their hats  and the women at their girdles or on  their bosoms.  The  Dinner   Hour. - , .  It is a curious fact that with almost'  every generation ,lhe dinner hour has  undergone a. change, the principal meal  of the day being eaten at different periods, from 10 o'clock in the morning '  until 10 o'clock at-night.    The author  ef "The Pleasures of the Table" points  out that in England 400 or 500 years  ago people took four meals���������breakfast  at 7, dinner at 10, supper sat -������ and livery at 8.    In France in the thirteenth  century 0 in the morning was-the dinner hour; Henry VII. dined at 11.    Tn  Cromwell's time 1 o'clock bad x:c_e to  be the fashionable hour and in Addison's  day  2  o'clock,  which   gradually  was transformed into 4.    Pope found!  fault with  Lady Suffolk for dining so  late as 4. Four and 5 continued i o be tlie  popular dining hours among the avis- .  tocracy until the second decade of tlie ���������������'  nineteenth   century, when dinner was  further postponed,. from which period  it has steadily continued to encroach  upon the evening.

The   'Rural  Mail , Carrier    *Re-  Sates a Case of "Poetry.  [Copyright, 1903, by C. B. Lewis.]  SEVERAL times of late, when I  have had mail . for Uncle Joe  White at the Red Bridge farm  I noticed that he was looking  worried and out of sorts, but-1 asked  no questions and he volunteered no in-  ' formation until the other day.' Then,  as 1 drove up, lie said to me:  "Abe, I'm,in a heap of trouble over  my son Dan, and I want your advice."  "And what's the matter with Dan?"  I asked.  "Well, about four weeks ago be took  to poetry, and he's been actin' like a  'tar'nal fool ever since. I can't get one  day's work a week out o' him. He's at  that poetry from morning till night,  and many a night he's up till midnight.  He's got an idea that he's a new Tennyson and that he's going to become a  great man. I've argued and coaxed and  threatened, but it don't do no good.  "Here's some of ,the stuff he's written, and I want you to readmit and tell  me what you think.*'  The first poem handed up read as follows: ,  She's false to me, the girl I loved;  My happiness she's shattered;  My heart will never love again  Because my faith is scattered.  The second one read:  ' Talk not to me of life and love,   , <  Talk not of roses red;  Talk not of buds, and sunny skies,  c- But rather of ,the dead.  "Has he'been, in  love  and  got the  throw down?" I asked of Uncle Joe.  "Not as I know of.   He jest seemed  ��������� to feel that way, you see.  Here is one  that is different."  The one that was different read:  "To arms!   To arms!" Sir Henry cried. ���������  "To arms, my brave defenders!"  And each one buckled on his sword  And tightened his suspenders. '     "  Then to the fray Sir Henry rode    ,  , And to the fray 'was f oiler ed,  And every time he killed a man  Most gleefully he hollered. ,     ���������" ',  "I don't know a durncd thing about  poetry,"   explained Uncle Joe,  "but  I  do  know when  a  feller is making. a  fool o' himself. < That's what Dan is1  doing now, and I want to stop him. ��������� I'm  not going to board and lodge and clothe,  him and let Mm-sprawl around on the  grass and tinker poetry.   He was eating  dinner the other das' when he jumped  . up to write this down:  "The flowers 'of May are nothing to me.  And nought'are the roses of June;   -  --I would lay down' and expire for the love  of Mariah ��������� ���������  And die in tlie full of the moon.  "Abe, is Dan a fool or a poet?" asked  Uncle Joe' as I finished reading the  above.  "A* little of both, I think," I replied.  "Will he ever git rich as a poet?"  "I hardly think so."  '.'Then, durn his hide, he's got to quit  this nonsense and git into tho cornfield.  I want to do what's right by my children, Abe, but they've got to do what's  right by me.  "Right now, when Dan ought to be  hustling with a hoe, he's out under an  apple tree writing poetry with his  tongue hanging out and his eyes rolled  up. If you say so I'll go out there and  jump him two feet high and scare all  the poetry out of him."  "I wouldn't be too sudden, Uncle  Joe," I answered.  "How too sudden?"  "Well, I'd give him a little warning���������  a little poetic warning. After I'm gone  you might wander out that way and  carelessly say to Dan:  "A farmer named "White he had a son,  And the son he was a great poet,  And verses wrote he of meadow and lea,  And fast was the pace he did go it."  "Yes,  Abe,  and what else?"   asked  Uncle Joe.  "Then you can sort o' walk around  \\JM  THE POET AT WOF.K.  s  Dan as if you were looking for something in the grass and continue:  "The blossoms of May don't blossom for  me;  Unheeded the song of the crow;  The old spotted cow is nought to ma now  Because of my heart full of woe."  "That's it, Abe. I begin to see."  "Dan will probably stop writing poet  ry to look up at you, but don't give him  any attention. Rest your hand on your  heart and look up at the sky and repeat: ,  "Talk not to me of summer skies.  Talk not of winds a-blowing;  Talk not of plows and drags and sich  And crops that should be growing."  "Keep 'er up, Abe���������keep 'er up. I'm  catching on."  "Then you softly side step toward  Dan and carelessly spit on your hands  and repeat:  ", 'Arise, arise'.' the father said,  ���������For glory doth await thee. '���������  And if thou stayest here behind  Thy daddy he will skate thee' **        -  ���������  "And with that I give Dan a h'ist?*  aueried Uncle Joe.  " "You do."  "With both hands?" >  "Yes." ,'  "And as I lift him up my right boor,  bangs against him." ��������� '   .  "It does." ,   -  "And his first jump toward the cornfield is fully ten feet, and he won't even  stop work when the, dinner , horn  blows?"'  "That's it. Uncle Joe."  "And he'll let up ,on poetry and tend  to business?" <��������� ,  "For evermore." ��������� ���������   '.  "Abe, I'm your friend for life, and  I'll have' Dan cured of his poetry and  working in the cornfield before you 'are  out of sight or break a leg a-trying!"  M.

"Besides, after trying many of the  preparations in vain a man would,naturally stop buying them."  "No,"-continued, the druggist, "I don't  think those, are the reasons.

So .far as the personal observation of the write; g-.es, crows,-  with most other varieties of birds,  are-of vastly more benefit to mankind in all agricultural pursuits,  than they arean evil.
