Near the last of the season, two  ardent sportsmen of the town started off in the plumb centre of about  as bad a night as ever was. among  the bad ones we have been getting,  to drive to Fanny Bay,, 20' miles  away, for the next day'* shiboting.  Arriving there, they shivered under  a tree for the balance of the night,  and at dawn began 'their'sport.  They were shortly after accosted by  a gamekeeper, who informed, them  that the shooting had been leased  by n certain Revd. sporting gentleman of the vicinity, but that on  payment of $150 they might, proceed to shoot up the atmosphere.  The fee was paid, and the sportsmen In due time became possessed  of sundry and various ducks. Becoming hungry, they repaired to  their grub sack for breakfait,leaving the birds anchored out as decoys, which, when viewed after their  return, presented a dismul picture  of scatturod feathers nnd disjointed  bones, owing to the atiaoks of certain omws, who had evidently  looked on the spread us being mad*  for their pptoial benefit. Late, Is te  tbat night, the weary, wator soaked  profanity exuding pair of hunters  completed their 20 mile return  drivo to Cumberland���������-one duck  a-piece.  Thc ceremony qf induoting Rev.

'"  I began to feel very much out .of  jt.. -Decidedly I had-wasted my.

I yawned and began looking about  .at-the pictures "on the walls, with all  of which I was perfectly familiar, in  a futile attempt to. create an independent line of amusement for myself.  T began to think I need not have  announced my engaged position with  so much precipitation. Captain'Thistleby did not seem inclined to' '.pay  me even tlio ordinaiy civilities of-society, rcrhaps, I mused, he ':. does  not care for tall girls, with reddish  hair and gray eyes. Perhaps he prefers piquante little blondes, like Bella,-with-pink cheeks and round blue  baby eyos.

The next morning, on coming dowm  rather later that usual, I was surprised to find Bella arrayed in her  bonnet" and cloak, with her gloves,  and, traveling-bag on the table he*  side her,, eating toast and poached  eggs with breathless haste, ." whilst  Captain Thistleby was pouring oui  her tea, and otherwise waiting upon  ���������her.VVV'.-- '  "Why, Bella!" I exclaimed.  "Oh, my darling,child! What will  you say to me? IV am obliged to go  up to town for tlio day���������your lost  day,;,too!   I am so dreadfully sorry.'  For- one minute I was almost inclined to accuse her of inventing this  scheme on purpose to leave me alone,  with her brothor-ih-law;' but her  pretty faco was full of concern as she  held out a letter for me to read. It  was from her lawyer. I glanced  hurriedly through it, without much  understanding it; but this much I did  see, that there was some solicitor  who was to bo met by he in town  and some paper which she must sign,  after having conferred with him, in  order to effect, a pending sale of  some of her property, of which I  had heard her speak. There was  evidently no foul play about it.  "Make haste, Bella, or wo shall bs  too late," said Captain Thistleby;  and at his words I perceived, . with  a gasp,:of.relief', that.'he was going  up with lier. Indeed,' when I came  to' think' of   it,what else should   he  do? . '.;,.-  "I am so, distressed, Freda, dear!  Your very last day and all! "What  wilLiyqu-do; to amuse yourself?'11  "Oh,* I. shall, do very well. I have  iny sketch of the boat-house to finish;, I shall go and do that after  breakfast; it's a lovely day, I shall  not be at- all dull. Don't make  yourself unhappy about ine, dear."  "Hero is the lly ��������� come along!"  cried  Captain Thistleby.  Bella hugged me as if she were going to South America,: jumped into  the fly, followed by her brother-in-  law, and they drove off.  Left to my own devices, I leisurely  finished..my breakfast, and then, taking my shady straw hat and my  drawing materials, I sauntered  down through the garden on to the  beach.  ���������There was a flight of stone steps  from the terrace leading to the  shore, and-in, the triangular bit of  shadow/which they cast upon the  beach I "installed myself with . my  back against' the garden' wall  Prussian railway cars have only  about three-tenths the carrying capacity of those used in the United  States.   ,  Hot weather is no more dangerous  to fat people than to,lean.

Pulmonary tuberculosis ls not a con-  tagious, but only a communicable disease. The codtact per se, of the consumptive Individual does, not convey  the disease. It ls now well known that  It Is mainly the tuberculosis expectoration, which, when dried and pulverized  to dust, constitutes the main danger of  Infection. The means to "prevent infection from tuberculosis expectoration or  saliva-expectorating only In proper  vessels, spittoons and pocket flasks,  proper use of handkerchiefs during  coughing, etc���������are now also universally taught.  It is absolutely demonstrated that a  tuberculosis patient, if he takes proper  care of his expectoration, does not constitute any danger to his fellow men.  In sanatoria and hospitals exclusively  devoted to the care of consumptives it  Is of the rarest occurrence for an attendant to contract the disease, the  hygienic precautions being so thorough. It may indeed be.said tbat In  these houses for consumptives one ls  less liable to contract consumption than  outside of them:���������Dr. S. A.

Most people have seen' a sick cat eat  grass or an uneasy dog seek-out some  weed and devour it greedily to make hia  complaining stomach feel better. Some  few amy have read John Wesley's directions ou the art of keeping well���������  which have uot, however, fouud their  wuy into his book oif discipline for the  soul���������and have noticed with surprised  interest his claim that many medicines In use among the common people  and the physicians of his time were  discovered by watching the aulinals'*  that sought out these things to heal;  their diseases. "If they heal animals,  they will also heal men." is his invincible argument. Others may have,  dipped deep into Iudlan history aud  folklore and learned that many of* the  herbs used by the American tribes, and  especially the cures for rheumatism,  dysentery, lever and snake bites, were  learned direct from thb animals by  notitig the rheumatic old bear grub for  fern roots or bathe in the hot mud of a  sulphur spring and by watching -with  eager eyes what plants the wild creatures ate when bitten by rattlers or  wasted by the fever.  The most elemental kind of surgery  is that which amputates a leg wheu it  is broken���������not. always or.'often, but  only.when.the wound festers from' de-:  cay.'or. lly bite and; so endangers the  whoie. body. Probably the best illustration of this is found' in the coonh(.who  bus a score% of' traits that place him*  very high among intelligent animals.  When a coon's foot is shattered by a-  bullet he will cut it off.promptly and  w:)sli the stump In running water; partly to reduce the inflnmiuationand'part-  ly. uo doubt, to make it perfectly clean.  As it heals he uses his tongue on the  wound freely, as a dog does, to cleanso  it perhaps "and .by the soft massage of  his tongue' to 'reduce the swelling and  "allay the pain.

It is a refupe part of the  year which by general consent has  been turned over to Lent and penitence.    In nearly all parts of the  world its character is uncertain.  It   passes  quickly  and violently  from one unpleasant mood to another��������� wind,  rain,  enow,  thaw,  slush, penetrating frosts, and sometimes a powerful Run acting upon a  disorganized earth.    It is so discouraging to  life  that  even the  Irishman recognises the fact that if  he lives   through  the  month  of  March he lives the year round. No  objection iB raised here to having  Lent substantially occupy March;  though the practice doubtless adds  something to iis -ombre and penitential character.    No one h-is a  good word to nay for this inontn,  but there is thi** to be Said, that if  the fast. d< es not improve March, it  ought to elevate and spiritualize the  people who have  to  endure   the  physicial  misery  of  the month.  Every, month ih the regions occupied by hi������h; civilizations has a  certain character, and an ingenious  parallel might be run-as to this rc*-  -presentative-charat*ter-of--d-iffeTent-  nationalities���������the cool, the fiery,  the fickle, the steadfast,' the ������������������* uel,  the lax, and so on, although few  nations would like to have blustering March taken as typical of its  character.    It is an unexplained  phenomenon that peoples have a  national eharacter, that it is not  always easy to trace in the individuals of a nation.    That is the  impression the nation as a whole  makes upon the rest of the world.  That is meant when we say we  know that Germany is over-bearing,  but feel much at home among the  Germans ; or that France is mis-  cbief-making, but there  is great  pleasure in life among the French.  The nation, then, has a sort of personality, and it is ueuully its obtrusively selfish side and unlovely  traits   that  most  imprest* other  nations.    March should  be cut  down to twenty eight days.    The  extra day could be given to it once  in four years, but it is a question  whether it should not go tu a nice  month that would mako butter use  of the loap-yoiii" privilu-jo than this  month, which abuses most human  sensibilities,    Who, for instance,  would not like a longer June?  *t^^mW*W*mm*^*jm*^^  Messrs Weiler Bros, have been  given the Role right io sell Osier-  moor Patent Elastic Felt Maitr-wes  In Violorla, and aro authorized to  endorse tho very strong gun i an teen  given by tho Manufacturers, Messrs  Ostermoor & Co of Now York,  This guarantee is that Osiormoor  Mattresses are tbo equal of any loll  hair mattresn over made in cleanliness, durability and comfoH.

In  such a,pi ace, hallowed by association with the man who would not  tell a lie, the spirit of truth holds  sway, and the speakeja last Monday confined themselves to the  strictest verities. Among the important historical faots recalled by  Mr Louis F, Cornish, secretary of  the Sons of the American Revolutions, was this, that in 1740 lobsters  ranged six feet long in New York  Bay, and were of that size until all  tbe big ones were soared away from  these waters by the commotion of  the British fleet; and oysters in  these days he said, were fourteen  inohes long, Truly we live, in de  generate days; but it is a world of  compensation; lobsters have de-  uR-tttiod in size most deplorably, but  whon it comes to long bows the  Sons are a hunt!rod yoaru in nd  vance of thoir Revolutionary sires,  ���������FOURMT AND STRKAM.
