His Ilea�oa. There was a very nice dish of watercress on an uptown restaurant table the other day. A pretty young woman saw the cool and duinty dish and appropriated the wholo of it. It happened that n young man seated at the end of the table had also cast covetous eyes at tho watercress, and he gave the waiter a quarter to steal the dish from tho young lady. When the latter discovered her loss she looked angrily around the table and saw the watercress slowly disappearing down the young man's throat. "Excuse me, Bir," she exclaimed, with heightened color and inllnito sarcasm. "Can you tell what you took that dish fPTT,J The young man stopped chewing for a moment. Then, with a graceful inclination of the head, he replied: "Pardon me, madam, but I took the dish because it contained watercress."-New York Journal. Sound at DiflTuronft Angles. In some recent experiments on the range of human hearing the ticking of a watch was distinctly audible at a distance of 10 feet on a line at right angles to the head. On oiuviiig the watch 15 degs. in front of the line the tick could bo heard 14 feet away; at an angle of 40 degs. only 0 feet, and at .*x> degs. only 3 feet. Placed 25 degs. back of the line the watch could not be heard beyond 0 feet. The total range of hearing was about 115 degs., the direction of greatest acuteness being IS degs. in front of the imaginary line through the ears. Descending from the horizontal, the hearing distance increased from 10 feet to a maximum of 12 feet at 05 degs.. and then decreased until reduced toO feet at GO degs. On carrying the watch upward the sound decreased steadily until at an augle of 60 degs. it could bo heard only 3 feet away.- Arkansaw Traveler. KlyMnn Weutlipr. There is nothing the matter with the weather in Washington now or at any time. Here the summer days are strings of silver pearls, which hang translucent iu the cool, sweet air; the red rose kiss of Juno fulls like a beuison on every breezu that wanders down from tho blue Virginia hills and, liko a cooling hand, drops softly through tho sunshine upon the eyelids of the resting town; the long, low lines of rustling trees, dew laden morn and eve, bring freshened life to every living thing, and every nerve aud fiber is filled with that rare tonic power which makes age youth aud overcomes all ills that may be heirlooms to the flesh. And our winters aro our summers in duplicate, and our springs and autumns will discount tho other two seasons with one hand tied behind them.-Washington Star. The Investigating Boy Agalu. The 3-year-old son of a certain clergyman came home from church the other Sunday with something puzzling his young soul. He was unusually silent all day, and it was not until next day that he appealed for light and help from his elders. At dinner on Monday he broke forth: "Papa, they was two ladies sanged In the choir, One lady had a wail tied bock around her head, so Ullustrat'mgl, and nuther lady had a little bonnet flat down on her cars, so (pa" ma on ears).

Then all of a sudden he began to feel pale. The boat seemed to be going round and ths sky wheeling overhead. The sun was dodging about very atrangoly. Drops of sweat burst from tho boy)o forehead; he let go his pole and said he thought he would go homo. Tho fellow who gave him tho tobacco began to laugh and tho other fellows to mock, but my boy did not mind them. Somehow, ho did not know how, ho got out of the canal boat and started homeward, but ntovery stop the ground rose as high as hU knees before him. and then, when ho got his foot high enough and began to put it down, the ground was not there. He vrna deathly slok as he rteled and staggered on, and when he reached home and showed himself, white and haggard, to his frightened mother ho had scarcely strength enough to gasp out a confession of his attempt to retriove the family honor by learning to chew tobacco. In Rnothor moment uature came to his relief, and then he fell into a deep sleep which lasted tho wholo afternoon, bo that It seemed to him the next day when he woke up, glad to find himself alive if not so lively. Perhaps he had swallowed some of the poisonous juice of tho tobacco; perhaps it had ncted upon his brain without that. His father made no very close inquiry into tho facts, and he did not forbid him the use of tobacco. It was not necessary; in that one Iittlo experience he had enough for a whole lifetime. It shows that af ter all a hoy is not so hard to satisfy in everything.-Harper's Young People. Grammar In Prlnon, A writer in The Boston Transcript describes tho school in the state reformatory at Concord, Mass. The greater part of the men gladly avail themselves of ita privileges, though others make all kinds of excuses, and one boy bruised his right forefinger regularly for two weska in ordei' to be exempt from writing. Of course the school la not without Its dunces. One boy could uever remember the word "conjunction." Tho teacher labored in vain till one day he had an Inspiration. Tho close proximity of the institution to Concord junction gave him an idea. "Now, Tom," ho said, "you can remember conjunction by thinking of Concord Junction." Totn's face beamed. At last the bothersome word was conquered; heshould never forget it. Weeks weut by, and the incident passed out of mind. The old difficulty was no longer heard of. Ono night visitors entered the room, and tho teacher called up Tom to analyze a sen tent e. All went well till he came to the word "and." Then he stopped, and a cold chill crept over the teacher. Tom glanced at the floor and then at the ceiling. Suddenly his face brightened. "And-and," said ho, "and is a Concord Junction." ^^^^ Bj Hogs of War. Doers as auxiliaries of the sentinels an-coming to the fore. It appears that a kind has been discovered in Tonquiu which has been converted into a vigilant and ferocious sentinel. It is tall and powerfully built. When those dogs are wanted for military service they are tied up, and natives are engaged to beat and otherwise ill, use them. The French soldier's duty on the other baud is to feed and pet them. If then at night they are fastened to a sentry box they naturally give the alarm directly an Annamite or Tonquinois approaches. They can distinguish the native from tho F.uropean by the scent, though either should He concealed. About this method of training there seems to be a good deal of unnecessary and cruel Ingenuity. Our English dog fanciers would probably be willing to undertake tho training of sentinel doga on terms much cosier for the dogs themselves.-London Telegraph. Mark Twain's Ideas on Conscience. Your conscience is a nuisance. A conscience Is like a child. If you pet it and play with it and let it have everything it wants it becomes spoiled and intrudes on all your amusements and most of your griefs. Treat your conscience as you would treat anything ebe. When it Is rebellious spank It-be bevere with it, argue with it, prevent it from coming to play with you at all hours, and you will secure a good conscience; that Is to say, �a properly trained one. A spoiled conscience simply destroys nil the pleasure in life. I think I havo reduced mine to order. At least 1 haven't heard from it forttomc time. Perhaps I've killed it through over severity. It's wrong to kill a child, but In spite of all I have said a conscience differs from a child in many ways. Perhaps it is best when it's dead.-Rudyard Kipling's Interview.___ Great Men's Autograph*.
