THE  MARRIED  MAN'S  RIGHTS  IN  HIS  OWN  HOUSEHOLD.  HI a Contentment at Home Depends  Very "Garsely on Hi�� Wife���Her Influence Is Everything���She Must Xot  A��k Impossibilities, Nor Must BTe.  We have often "hoard a wife complain  that her husband does not take lier about,  ' that he "merely makes his house a hotel,  and she only sees him at meals," or that  he makes friendships in which she has no  part. She accuses him of neglect and  considers herself jrrently ill used. But  how if the fault is partly hers, nnd perhaps, after all, he is only following the  natural instincts of humanity in seeking  for sympathetic companionship?  Every one knows that a man, to bo  won and his devotion kept, must first be  uttracted, of course, and then be made to  feel that there is at his command a sympathy which draws him out nnd encourages him to talk about what interests  him most whenever he feels inclined.  Talking to him is not enough, however  much of a past mistress one may be in  the, r.rt, for a man soon tires of being a  listener only and of always giving his  , sympathy and receiving nothing in return.  -   "Selfish?"  Terhaps, but very natural nevertheless,  and  paragons,  so we are told,   whether  male or female, nre usually the reverse of  pleasant to1 live with.   So it is wisest not  to expect too  much  nnd   philosophic   to  make the best of things  under  the' cir- I  cumstances.   The cause of all this is not  '  very far to find.    Deplore it as we may,,'  it is indisputably a fact that a man's upbringing is totally different, as a rule, from  a woman's in this respect.,   He goes out  into the world young nnd leads a separate "existence nt an age when his sister  is still  surrounded   by  her home  circle.  When   his   work���whatever   that   is���i.s  ,' done, be has but to consider himself and  consult his own pleasure, "How shall he  host amuse himself?"    And if he can he  '    does it.  TLat men act more and more on thi��  principle  is  clearly   shown   by   the   way  they treat their ordinary social  engagements, thinking nothing of breaking one  when c another more attractive offers  it-  . self and  refusing to decide'till  the .last  moment   which   they   will   accept,   says  Ethel Young in the Pittsburg Dispatch.  It is therefore scarcely to be wondered  at  if many years of indulgence  in  this  kind   of   thing,   coupled   with   a     larger  command   of   money   should   make  men  more selfish.    This may be overpowered  for a time by a strong affection arid all  its   counter  influences,   but   later,   when  t these-have ceased to be a novelty and a  man settles down to married life, the old  habits reassert themselves. '  A woman, on the contrary, Is trained  In a very different school. Sho is usually  at home, and the other members of the  household must always be considered  when any plans or engagements, however  trivial, are made. Possibly she does not  realize it, but with her the question ia  not "How can I best amuse myself ?" but  "What will amuse and interest us?"  So shall  we see, that the man  in  his  bachelor days  is   undeniably  trained  or  allowed to contract selfish habits, and th��  woman ln her girlhood is equally brought  up to bo unselfish.   O temporal O mores! .  However much we may quarrel with,it, I  it is a fact, and if women would but rec- I  ognize this really fundamental difference  , between the acquired natures of herself  and   her  own   folly   she   would   have   a  greater chance of lasting happiness and  would,   moreover,   learn   how   best   and  most surely to make herself attractive (o  the man who has chosen her, or to keep  her charm.  '     There  are  men,  however,   It must  bo  admitted,   who often  expect  impossibilities  from their wives.    Such  men  allow  her a  sum  equal    to   about   what   they  spend on lunches, cigars and amusements  in n week and think she ought to be able  to keep house on it admirably and grumble if the meals are not to their liking.  Tbey expect the wife to be bright, cheerful and  well  dressed  on  an   inadequate  nllowance   and   a   too   liberal   supply   of  bard work.  When this is the case, of course no  one can possibly sympathize with the  eoifiph husband or offer any defenwe for  him.  Hut the fault is not always on tho  man's side. Women, too, often make the  mistake of settling down to n humdrum  sort of life ns soon as the honeymoon  is over. They become careless in their  -dress and manner and .act as though  they consider anything good enough for  the husband, though nothing had been  too good for the lover, and then complain���oh. inconsistency, is not thy name  woman?���that they nre neglected. Is it  any wonder they nre?  It is very certain that a woman wor-,  thy the  name can   in  most  cases  make  because Bhe shows very plainly that sho  does not expect courtesy from him and  herself neglects him.  There are many little things that add  so much to tbe comfort of a man's home  that no wife should consider it unnecessary for ber to know. One of them i3  the care of men's clothes. It often happens that a man is too busy ro look after  his own wardrobe, and if there is' no  servant to do It for him he often has to  suffer considerably from the ignorance  or indifference of his womenfolk on this  score.  Trousers should be folded carefully, so  as to get a crease down the center of the  leg, nnd  put into a trouser stretcher or  drawer.     They  should   never  be   "hung  up," which is woman's way of "tidying."  Coatx, if hung up, should be spread upon  a shoulder I'm me to prevent creases.  Another little essential to remember is  i j that a man likes to find every article of  his dress or toilet   in exactly  the same  place every day, his shaving things here,  his brushes on the side of the table, and  so on. .  Trifles, these, but it is tbe small things  of"life that bare the power to make or  mar its comfort, after all. A man naturally expects his wife to respect big  wishes and so far as she can to conform  her life to his means and, desires, to be  content with that social position to which  he is entitled and to live within the limits of his income. He expects" her to be'  able ro look after his borne without  bothering him about trivial details and  to be capable of entertaining his friends  suitably.  CHOOSING A LIFE WORK-  -* Women sailors are employed in Denmark, Norway and Finland, and they ar��  often found to be most excellent and delightful mariners.  NO JAM   IN   HIS/LUNCH.  Sir.   Carter   Explains   AVJiy   He   Left  His riennant  Ilourdinjr House.   '  "No; I don't board with the Akerses  tiny more," said Mr. Carter. "Iu fact,  I've left the south side for good and am  now boarding on the north side."  Mr. Carter is a gentleman about 28  years old and occupies a responsible and  highly paid position with a great Chicago business house.' ��� Six feet tall and  .weighing 200 pouuds, he is a magnificent  physical specimen of a man. Winter  and summer, rain or shine, he walks to  his office in tho morning aud home at  night. He always carries his lunch with  Lim, ns he dislikes restaurant cookery  nnd it saves him time nnd money.  "Well, I am surprised," was his  friend's comment. "Why, you and Akers  were such friends before his marriage  that I thought you had a permanent  home with him. And you and Mrs.  Akers were-'always such great friends  too.    Why did you leave them?"  ���;i'li tell you," said Carter. "I didn't  get any jam on niy( bread. "#  "You surely didn't leave them for  that?" asked his astonished friend. *        j  "I   surely  did,"   indignantly  answered  Mr. Carter.   "It was.a gross case of partiality on Mrs. Akers' part.   She knew I  was passionately fond of jam too.    Ou��  morning I  went  into tho  kitchen.     She  was getting the lunches ready for myself  and her husband when I''went in, and I  noticed  she  had   some   fine  marmalade.  She put it on her husband's bread, but  not on mine.  " 'Don't I get marmalade?' I asked.  " 'No'   she  said.     'I   got this  for   Mr.  Akers.'  "That made me feel mad. I thought  of it all the way down, nnd when lunch  time came I wouldn't eat my lunch, and  at night I carried it .back home. Mrs.'*  Akers saw that I hadn't touched it and'  asked the reason. I told her, and she  laughed in my face. I told her that at  the end. of the week I would leave her,  aud that settled it."  "Do you get jam where you board  now?" asked the friend.  "Every day,'' answered Carter, with a  smile of satisfaction.���Chicago Inter  Ocean.  ISojj arust Fix Tliair Eyes on  a Goal and  Kurnegtly Strive to Attaio It.  The principal of a boys' school  was speaking- to the pupils about  their future life. ITe asked: "How  many of you have decided what you  will tie when you become men?"  There was  no reply.   He then asked that any  boy there  who  had  selected  his  future  occupation     should  hold   up his   hand.    Out  of  the hundred,   ten  boys  did so.     Kinety had  no idea what they were going to do  in   this   world,   for   the   world or for  themselves.      He   then    asked    those  who     had     given    the    matter some  thought, but  were yet  undecided,   to  raise the hand.   Fifteen  hands  went  up.    Seventy-five    boys     out    of    the  hundred, between the ages of 3 4-nnd  20, had never thought    about    their  future  occupation.    Considering thai,  how much' could  they expect to  excel  in  anjrthing or   to  make  a mark  In   the  world?   Yet,   doubtless,   some  of them, when  men,    will     complain  that  wealth  and honors  are  unevenly divided in this world.  Tho way to have honor, to become anybody of importance, to  be a power among men, is not to  envy another person, but to fix: tho  eyes upon that goal and work for it,  choosing early the path that leads  to that eminence. <-  A    young    man     desired    to    be a  clergyman. ' He  was   the     only  child  of a/widow,  who could  not educate  him.    A  wealthy   gentleman,   becoming  interested   in  him,   offered  to  defray the expenses   of    his education.  Ho  gladly    accepted,     prepared     for  college,  and  had just  entered,   when  ,the gentleman     failed,     losing  every  dollar.    The young man, ,   of  course,  had to leave college, but- he did not  give  up  his  determination     to  enter  the ministry.    He  taught music  that  3rear, saved his money,    and "entered  college, , Continuing to  teach  in     the  college  town,   he    supported  himself  through  his  whole college  course.  I know of      another     young   man  who,   with  every opportunity to pursue one thing, changes his, mind, and  his   occupation  about as  often  as he  does  his  coat.    He never gets  above  the drudgeiw part, and is  only earning' 33  a week,     sometimes nothing,  for  thero  are frequent resting, places  at the    change  of   his'    occupations.  Who  could  expect    him     to, make  a  success of his life?  No matter what, profession or  trade you take up, you have to  work, and work harder and under  more difficulties at the outset than  farther on. The boy who wants' to  shirk this necessary' drudgery is not  mado of {he stuff which conquers in  life.  Above   all     things,   avoid   being    a  "jack-of-all-trades."   Some  men have  a   genius   for  so   many     things   that  they  cannot give    enough   , attention  to' one  thing-  to   master   it.    T know  of a  youth     of    nearly, 20   who  can  play    and    sing,    mend    a  ��� clock, a  music,    box,  an   organ,   invent    little  things,     make    toffee,    draw,  and���  why,   I hardly    know    anything    he  cannot do,  and   the   "consequence  is,  he is  not doing anything.,   If anyone  wants  anything     "fixed,"   he  i.s    the  one  who  fixes  it',   but his' life is   not  going to be "fixed" in any direction.

The peculiar simplicity of the Freucn  peasant is illustrated by two incidents:  A peasant went to his postoffice and offered for the mail a letter which was  over the weight specified for a singU  stamp.  "This is too heavy," said, the postmaster. -'You will have to put another  stamp on it."  "Wh-wh-why," said the peasant, with  wide open eyes, "w-w-will another stamp  make it lighter?"  Another peasant, presiding over the  municipal council of his village, gave the  assembly a lecture on the lack of necessity for any more road building.  "As for the roads which are now bad,"  he said, "it is of no use to repair them,  for nobody travels over them, and as for  those which are good, why do anything  to them until they get bad ?"

Dr. Pakenhnrn-Walsh, jvho recently  resigned the Bishopric ofOssory, is  celebrated aliko for his piety and'his  vwt. There is a story told' of how  ha proposed to his wife. He was at  a dinner party and was seated bo-  side the woman of his choice. In  the course of the dinner he found  that he had been helped to the  "wishing bone," and, as often is the  custom in country houses, he pulled  for the wish with his fair neighbor.  Tho little V-shaped bone was broken, and the Bishop, having secured  the wish, whispered to his companion, as he laid down his part of the  bone: "Will you lay your bones with  my bones?" She blushingly whispered an as3ent, and after dinner the  engagement j-was announced.  ,.y StatU.tica en   Clill.lron.  As a. result of a careful investigation of 24,000 cases, Dr. Jarosie presented to tho director' of i the Hungarian Bureau of Statistlcu the following conclusion*: The offspring of  parents between the ages of 20 and  23 are likely to be weak and delicate, but between 2.r> and 45 wm  probably bo strong and thrive. The  mother beara most robuat children  between her 25th and 35th year  When the mother Is ton years younger than the father the proportion of  healthy . children is greatest, the  chances (being ten per cent, more favorable than when the parents ar*  about tho fiamo age.

PeDtoa stared at mo heavily without  speaking, and  then  his eyes wandered  off. my face to something be held in hia  hand���a something  of  metal with the  glitter of glaas at the  end of it.   In a'  dim way I seemed.to remember having  seen the thing before myself, but could  not reoolleot when or whore. I will own  that I was toooonfnsed to think clearly,  and   while  my mind  was  still  hunting dully for eome memory of tho object  in Georgo-s hand ho   straighteued himself with asobbiug gasp, and then, crying like a frightened child, he ran away  into tho night.  ��� I watched him go nloug the wet mirror of  tho  pavement under the  yellow  glow of , the gas lamps until ho doubled  round tho corner, and 'then I turned to  . tbe woman who;waa  lying huddled on  the ground and lifted her baud.   There,  was no  trace of a pulse.,., I placed my  Angers over her heart.  There waa not a  fliokerof movement, bnt instead I'found  some'thing else.- It cut me like glass. It  was glass.   I stooped down aud saw the  glimmer of It with   my eyes, and then'  with  a  start  I recalled what  George  Pen too was clutching in his bond when  he ran a way from me. It was tho metal  hilt  <:f, a   Venetian   dagger,  with   the  blade Lialf broken off.    Tho re��t of that  mieeing white glass blade was,sheathed  in tho life center of tbe unhappy woman  who lay at ruy'feofc.   I knew the daggor  well.   It was   a  rare curio which   had  hung on the wall of Teuton's room.  I etcoped down aud n^aiu passed my  hand over the place of that ghastly  death thrust. ' Tho falling rain was beginning to drenoh the woman's, clothes,  bnt'roond the projecting end of the dagger all was dry. Not a drop of the poor  creature's lifeblood had oozed from the  cwound. She had been stabbed with at  single blow, and the hilt had been broken off with u suap. The Venetian dagger had done its work.  I waa so utterly overcome by tbe horror of my discovery tbat for some moments 1 knelt thero absolutely dazed,  staring at the murdered woman,'whose  faoe was surely not whiter than my  own. So dazed was I tbat I did not hear  footsteps approaching mo down the  pavement and did not know that any  one had come along this eccluded .back  street until,I heard a voioe speaking behind ray elbow. I looked up and saw a  long, lean, dissipated looking individual  clad from head to foot in needy bluek.  He held an umbrella over his head,  whioh let the lamplight through many  of its eeaniH, and a buuch of dirty gray  cotton showed through tho too of one of  hia boots.   He spoke in jerks.  "Lady fainted?" I heard him say.  "Bless 'em, they will do these things!  Intense heat, intense cold, moderitte  toniperaturo-r-equaJ result all around.

By (his time he had doubled up hia  great length beside me like some uncouth six foot rulo of humanity nnd was  passing his long, Jean fingers rapidly  over tho woman's body. I saw tho lingers closing over her watch and chain.  "Ownticker left at homo ou grand  piano," he said in an explanatory jerk.  "Lady's ticker no doubt in perfect condition. .No use feeling pulse without  technical appliance."   ,  He was proceeding to put the watch  in his pocket when I gripped him by the  wrist and wrenched it from his hand.  Ttrt) coarse knavishnessof the man acted  upon mo like a drink of spirits. My  flurry" and excitement passed away like  a flash, nnd I saw the facta of the case  clearly and dispassionately. I hit tbe  fellow au upward blow in the chest that  sent him staggering and gasping against  the wall.  "You scoundrel 1" aaid  I.

Yes, sir, I'll  etako my medical reputation on tbat."  And off ho ran in the direction of South  Audloy street, howling "Murder!" at  the top of his tliiu, cracked voice.

A hundred thoughts Unshod  across my mind, but obielly I ^cursed  myself for being thero nt all. It was  all tho fault, I suppose, of being in  love. On tho strength of new promotion  I had pone that night to tho girl whom  1 had loved long beforo sbe^had left the-  schoolroom, and had bbcomo formally  engaged to her. I left the houso iu a  mnze of joy, her kissee fresh upon my  lips. ' . ,,  I was  staying  at  tho First Avenue  hotel, in Hoi born, and my most natural  route was along Piccadilly aud Shaftesbury avenue; but, lost as I was iu hap-  pie?fcr thought, from   old  associations I  turned down Park lane aud wan  nonio  distance  up   beforo   I   discovered  my  whereabouts.   I  had sense enough left  to lomeniber that two sides of a triangle  are greater than the third, aud habte'uod  to retraco ruy steps, intending to cue oil  a corner by taking down' Curzon street  and one of tbo many branches into Pic-,,  cadilly.    As my ill luck would have it  I chose Back 'Savillo street, aud there,  half ,.way  down   that .-deserted   way,"'I  camo across GeorgoPentou and his deed  of darkneus.   And now, as I stood thero  hesitating, thinking.

ROBERT ROSS.  the dead mice aiid dead birds, for,  though birds and mice arc constantly  dying in "urge numbers, hardly one is  ever to be seen. The fact i.s that tliey  nre buried by booth's. IJuclm'er gives a  hiief account of them as follows:       ' '  '.'Several, of them'unite together "to  bury under die ground, as ,focd and shelter for their young, some tleiul animal,  such as a mouse, a toad, a mole, -a bird,  etc. The burial is performed because the  corpse, if left above ground, would ci-'  ther dry up or. grow rotten or be eaten  hy other animals." In all these cases the  young would perish, whereas the dead  body lying in the earth aud withdrawn  from the outer air lasts .very well.'  "The burying beetle goes to work in a  very well considered fashion, for they  scrape away the earth lying under the  body so that it sinks 1 ' itself deeper and  deeper. When it is deep enough, if is  covered over from above. I'f the situation is stony, the beetles, with united  forces and great efforts, drag the corpse  to some place more suitable for burying.  They work so diligently that a mouse,  for instance, is buried within three hours.  But th'ey often .work on for days, so as to  bliry the body as deeply as possible.  PVom large carcasses, such as> those of  horses, sheep, etc., they only bury pieces  as large as they can manage."  There can be no doubt of the intelligence of these strange insects, as' a gentleman discovered in a rather curious  way. He desired to dry a dead toad,  and for that, purpose he fastened it upon  the top of an upright stick. The burying  .beetles, however, yvere soon attracted by  the smell, and, finding that they could'  not reach the load, they undermined the  stick, causing it to 'fall with the toad,  which was then duly buried.���Our Animal Friends.   .

They were also clqaring a piece  of   ground   upon .which   they   were  going to   build   a   town   that  would  "cause the grass to grow in the streets  of   Moyie,"    as   Col.   Bray ton,   their  agent put   it.    One year  has passed  and   Moyie   is still   on   earth.   But  ' Where, Ohy where are Moyelle and the  colonel?   Moyelle is depopulated, the  windy,    irrepressible    and, pompous  colonel is looking  for suckers  in  thc  Lardo-Duncan conn try, and thc  Canadian   Pacific   railway, company   for  , once has been defeated,   The people  of Moyie, to a man, "/stayed  by .their  town. , Had   they  weakened  the  result would have   been different.'    One  year ago the Leader said- that while |  the C.
