head aches it not the most common is that called nervous Tho class of people who are most subject to it are certainly not your outdoor workers It ever my old friend thegardener had had a headache it would not have been one of this descrip tion Nor does Darby the plowman nor Jarvey the bus man nor Greatfoot the ganger suffer from nervous headache nor any one else who leads an outdoor Ife or who takes plenty ot exercise in the open air Bnt poor Mattto who stoves away her days in a stuffy drapers shop and Jeannle In her lonesome attic bend ing over her white stitch stitch far Into the night and thou sands ot others of the indoor working class ore martyrs to this form of head ache Are they alone in their mlseryf No for my Lady Bonhomme who comes to have her ball dress fitted on has often a fellow feeling with Jeannle and Mattie She however we cannot afford to pity quite so much because she has the power to change her modus Vivendi whenever she chooses What are the symptoms of this com plaint that makes your head ache so Yon will almost know it is coming from a dull perhaps sleepy feeling You have no heart and little hope and you are rest less at night Still more restless though when it comes on In full force and then for nights perhaps however ranch you may wish to yon can scarcely sleep at all How my poor head does sche This yon will say often enough sadly to your self and hopelessly to those near yon from whom yon expect no sympathy and get none And yet the pain is bad to near although it is generally confined to only one part ot the head The worst ot this form ot headache lies in the fact that It is periodic Well as it arises from unnatural habits ot life or pe culiarities of constitution this periodicity is no more than we might expect If I just note down some ot the most ordinary causes of nervous headache peo ple who suffer thenfrom will know what to do and what to avoid 1 will then speak ot the treatment Overwork Indoors Overstndy Work or study

represent Little Buttercup In It is always commented Mr Jo seph W Homer the costnmer to ft re ooat was Mown far out to porter who happened to be present aboara the Belndeer been at this business thirtyfive years a I havent yet found the child who did not get said the funny little man object to appearing in dark or coarse cos The costumes the little girls enjoy added Mr Homer are those that are brilliant the brighter and more spark ling they are the better the children are pleased while a somber dress seems to have a bod effect on them at once Tho boys like soldier clothes best and sailor suits next The girls always take a great fancy to a train gown and when represent birds of long plumage they pay particular attention to it I have watched them very closely and have noticed too how peculiarly old fashioned girls are la every instance and how they are all at tention to the instructions given them requiring much lew effort in this respect than boys Some of the most elegant cos tumes worn by girls of 6 to 8 years are Pasteurs method of Inoculation has been eimplined by a Hungarian physician Instead ot taking the sjrfnal cord of an In fected rabbit and attenuating Its poison

silver How young have you known children to appear in private theatricals or on the professional stage As early as 2 years of age I remem ber a girl of thin age who committed eight to memory and recited them at a Sunday school entertainment She did not break down once and her pronuncia tion was correct throughout At u fairy play la a hall of this city at which u school took part then was a girl of 3 years who remembered her part all through and did the stage business well She also sang la an What is tho best age for teaching chil dren to actf For girls 7 or 8 years The brain at that time begins really to develop and Is ttocteuftceplinle Hoys must be 10 years old before they can do anything cute or smart on the stage That is my actual experience and Ive taught at least children for Stage appearances My idea Is that a childs soul is as mature as a grown persons The penetrating maze of Children netmil to me to show What parts are children best In Pathetic and singing parts Comedy In children Is very rare In fancy pieces those written especially for children the boys do as well as girls but the girls learn their parts and seem to understand what Is wanted of them much more quickly than boys They do not forget while tlie boys do The boys will leave out lines The parts must be fairly thumped Into them I recall one remarks bio piece ot work by a girl of 8 years that will show jou how apt they arc The play was and a numhcr of chil dren were to act It for some charitable in stitution Tho girl who was to take the part of Ariel WM IS yean old At noon on the day the play was to bo Riven met with an accident that rendered her appearance Impossible Our only huno was a child 8 years old who we knew was bright enough to read the part saw her that afternoon and asked her to rend the part She had been on the stage be fore In private theatricals and had done very well Sbo refused to read hut said would learn the part Tbero were 200 lints and seven or tight She began at 8 oclock and by the time tho curtain was rung up had committed the part completely to memory Why on the stage she recited It as readily as if it hod been an everyday occurrence with her She was the child ot poor parents I have seen great big girls of 14 or 13 cry and snivel over their part when younger ones would get along without any difficulty I remember a noteworthy case where I had seventy young girls In a tableau The girl In it representing the Spirit of Death was only 10 I gave them their positions and told them to leave the stage come back and take exactly the same places again They did It without a single How long does It take to prepare a child to take a For a play six rehearsals ns a rule are sufficient and for a tableau one re hearsal is enough In a tableau ot a gypsy dance not long ago I placed the children in position hand and foot raised as if dancing and then dismissed them Two days later they all took the same positions without a word of instruction An interesting case was that of a wore of children whose ngcs ran from H to IS and who wen governed as to their positions on tho stage by different lights one posi tion for blue another for red anil so on Not one missed after tho first rehearsal and the little ones were jnst as apt ns tho older ones and were besides often first to take their Do many of the children become pro fessional actors No These little private performances are done for the amusement of friends and parents arc delighted to see their children In them but when the children are wanted for the professional singe the parents object at once There is no in stance that I know ot where a child has been cultivated at so early an ago for the stage nor do I know of a woman who became a brilliant actress from a smart child on the stage I do know however of boys who were bright in this respect who have become good actors The child who in 1850 made such a hit as Eva in Uncle Toms when it first came on is an example of what I tell you

of this he can gtofhale into a serial writer a novelist publishing either in the magazines or in book form or both In this way the writer of stories has an advantage over the dramatic writer In that he can as Mr nrander Matthews mftke his brief essays and try them on the editors and on the public whereas in the dramatic art In this country he does not get the chance that he docs abroad where they take one act plnys from beginners That is ono reason why there are so many good writers of fiction coming np all over the country and why there are so few dramatists because the former have a chance to try their experiments npon the the latter have small Has not that been the case with almost all of our fiction writers of the present generation they began with short stories and then blossomed oat

a charge of electricity baa the property of inducing another charge ot electricity of an appesite kind to itself on any conducting matter near it and as the earth is composed of what is called conducting matter It follows that a charged cloud sailing orcr surface of the earth induces an opposite charge on the ground below Those two opposite charges one of positiTC the other of negative electricity tend by another well known property of electricity to rnsli toward each other and combine Hence they are able to overcome the resist ance ot the air between which keeps them apart they leap together with s flash and crack producing the familiar phe nomena of thunder and lightning Sometimes another cload floating near the first one takes the place of the earth and then the lightning flash takes place between them Lightning ot this kind not strike the earth but it might linve a destructive effect on the hitter for that because it might give rise to the bock which is sometimes fatal to life The back stroke is not due to the direct flash and discharge It Is rather the reaction after the direct dis charge has taken place elsewhere Sup posc for example that a track of upland a rural district with trees farms and here and there a church dotting it is covered by a thundercloud which induces charge of electricity npon H In order that the charge upon the earth may get nearer to that vipou tho cloud so as to combine with it the electricity by another well kmwn property will heap itself on the most prominent and pointed objects of the landscape That is to say it wilt ac cumulate on the trees barns chimney tops and spires of the district The whole atmosphere of the region is In a state of tension awtl suspense Tho bolt IB trembling in the balance but no man knows where it will fall Presently there is a blinding flash of light tho sky rent with a lurid stream of fire and in stantly the tension is relieved The dis charge has taken place at one point the point which offers tho pnth of least resist ance through tho air and at which Iho electrictension was most critical At every other place where tho electricity nitd seriously accumulated there Is con sequently a sudden of clwlric poten tial or a collapse to its old condition or AS it is colled a return This lustniitnueoiis change is sometimes as fatal as the direct discharge and It tuny ruin a building or destroy life several miles from the scene of the flash The return stroke in therefore more mysterious und unexpected than the flush but fatal effects are comparatively rare from Nevertheless since tho latter have been attributed to this cause a person cannot feel quite safe although a thunder Htorm with lightning is still several miles from him the number ot miles Iwlng estimated hy counting the seconds which elapse be tween the liiwh ami the pcnl and allow ing n distance uf four miles for every second counted He may feel snfcr limit if it were close upon htm but tbcrc is still eome room for fenr In fact there Is no rcnl safety except within the area properly protected by a lightning conductor or In a building which Is Itself a protector or instance a Iron house Every building then should be protected in order lie wife In the country where these are often isolated n lightning rod would lie required tor eacli but in towns ono rod would Eomrtiincs protect more than one house around it according to its height and con ductivity The takes place tit the point Of least resistance bccnunc It Is hero thnt the two opposite clcclrlcVles can cauicst rush together the emtcrncss with which they tend to ruth together is another thing to be considered These two things tnkcu together determine the discharge There may bo lew resistance to the at one hoiiso or tree than at another but t the attraction between tho opposite electricities is less at tho former the flash may traverse UM hitter llenco one cannot exactly say If one treXr or Imilding will be safer than another Tbero is uncertainty nud this is n reason for the Instinct of and uneasiness which most animals feel on tho approach of a thunder storm In ucncral however we can say that high houses or those perched on high ground are more likely to miller from tho discharge than email low lying houses The former nro therefore all more eli gible for protection and they are to bo avoided In shelter from a storm So are houses surrounded by trees and with ponds or pools of water close besido them For trees act as imperfect light ning rods having a good earth connection and especially if they are wet the dis Khargo may strike the house in order to the ground through them or in the cose of the pond through tho water Ono should not shelter under trees ot any kind but more especially tall soft trees 0ie poplars Many deaths have been in curred from sheltering under poplar trees In France Thunder storms are said to be more Irwjwntln open treeless conntrias such OS tho Transvaal or the Scottish hills and the tact has htsx attributed to the un checked ascent ot electrical vapors but on tho other hand they are probably less destructive in such countries Chimneys by creating currents of warm cmoko and hy their lining ot conducting soot are dangerous parts of houses end there arc ninny instances of the discharge taking thnt road It were better then to Hitting near a tiro In a storm In deed the safest plnco in the house on snch mi occasion would seem to be inthe cellar nnl basement rooms or upon n Iron bcd In the open air there cannot be a piece than dry holo or ditch for it places the body below the surface of tho ground and therefore not exposed on a prominent plnco But it should be a dry else tho water in it may invite the discharge for water being a conductor

Russia Its principal advantage consists in the saving ot time required for tie work and in the ot Kay which would to some extent redoce the strength of the win The two ends ot the wire already embraced by binding wire are dipped Into a vessel holding a considerable quantity of melted snider I npon the top of which there is sufficient powdered sal ammoniac to leave a thick j I layer liquid

atfniber deaths within its walls has not tocreasM Humanity and science have cat down the1 death rate On an average ten persons a year die in the prison and nearly all ot those who hare died hate been trariei in the prison graveyard and left there un disturbed A lew have died by accident in the work shops but the percentage of death by accident is so small to be scarcely worthy ot note A large major ity of deaths has been caused by con sumption which however is rarely eon tracted within the prison walls A prisoner1 suffering from consumption is shown every consideration possible with prison discip line His work is mode light and as soon as be shows the symptoms ot breaking down he is sent to the hospital In the prison graveyards repose the bones of about 500 convicts This makes the number of deaths average nearly ten a year The old graveyard on the slope nearest the river looks like a deserted Gods acre of olden times A dozen yenrs ago when the burying ground was moved further up the slope the fence of the old place was left to take core of itself which it has failed to do The mounds have been beaten down until they are level with the ground The rough wooden crosses that bear a number corresponding to one in big ledger in the prison in which a record of the dead is kept stand In straggling fashion Thess were origin ally nnpalnted pieces of wood nailed to gether in the form ot a cross and driven into the etirth A few of them have been kicked over but even on them that are still standing the numbers that were ou them once have been so defaced by the weather thatthey are scarcely legible The newer graveyard to in a much btt ter condition The wooden crosses are comparatively new and the numbers that are on them can be plainly seen At tho bead of a few of the mounds stand rough stones crudely cut Every ono of these stones tells a slory more pathetic than do many ot the pretentious monuments in big nnd finely kept cemeteries These rtoocs nre all Uie work of prisoners who labor during hours of leisure as acts of friendship When a prisoner Is very 111 and there nccms to be dancer that he will die his friends arc notified and the Iron rule of the prison is for the time unnoticed He is allowed to settle up in the presence of his friends all of his worldly affairs and to hove them about his bedside nntil the end comes There arc occasions of course and many of them when the prisoner IK cither absolutely friendless or is only anx ious to die without making his shame known tn his friends When the end comes the body is then free and to the friends of the dead man IK given the mel ancholy privilege of bcnring the body out sldo of tho prison walls A prison funeral Is usually a solemn affair The big bells that are used In prison are always clanging nut come kind ot an order to the prisoners or a summons to the keepers and they always stir a wnrltl of echoes la the silent corridors When o prisoner Is dead the fact is generally well known unusual
