Bessie stopped the Carriage before Billy s Homo and Irene is rang out before or. Homer could ask if he might have the pleasure to assist her.

Irene walked with stately dignity up the walk and rang the door Bell then stepped Back and waited nonchalantly for an answer. Billy himself admitted her. He did not keep her waiting Long and As they left the House mrs. Leslie came to the door and Joc Osely demanded of Irene a Promise to take extra care of her Quot utile Billy Leslie was a merry hearted robust Fel Loav of about two him red pounds avoid Dupois and it was a diverting sight to see him assume great helplessness on entering the Carriage in order to extend the very pleasant service Avrich the stately Irene was zealously and industriously trying to Render him. Finally after Many an Exchange of Gay speech Irene succeeded in getting her corpulent charge seated. As they drove away she insisted on tying her Gaize veil around his Throat to protect him from the Cool night air. Of course the Good natured fellow submitted to the i precaution of his fair guardian awhile Bessie and the doctor exhausted their Avit at his expense. It avas a Gay Little i arty that drove thro Vigh the so a or Moonlight from the town Tavard or. Charles. The girls were so considerate of the Comfort of their charges so Bright and agreeable withal that the drive avas All too Short for Billy a7id or. Homer. Or. Charles took charge of the horses and Carriage a Hen they arrived and allo aved the girls to escort their gentle Meu into the House. The gentlemen were politely Shovan to ten in dressing room adhere slippers fans and floaters Avert handed them. Then the girls chatted Avith each other Abuit the w do lighted Hall until the gentlemen Avert ready to be escorted to the parlor. Adhere others had preceded Vliem.

Irene undertook to silo a thu boys hoax to be elegant in asking a lady s hand. A game avas being formed in one of tie rooms and Irequi avas re pies ted to Cloose a partner and join it. Step ing up to Bill she l Oava gtd most courteously and in a Clear voice said Quot Madam Avill you kindly Honor me Avith your assistance Quot Bessie Bose and Edith were not Shaw to imitate the charming exam it be of Irene and All Avert soon enjoying a pleasant game in Avrich the ladies took the gentlemen s places.

The girls were indefatigable in their attentions to their company. Uliey would hasten to secure them seats after finishing a game and run for glasses of lemonade to refresh them Avith. Some of the youths present Niy have betrayed a Sonu Nihat a Lune faced aspect As Uliey Avat Ched the girls Hying about hither and thither leaving nothing undone for the pleasure and refresh Anent of their partners.

It was Only under Promise of taking the strictest care of him Quot she announced As she wrapped him up in his Spring overcoat Quot that mrs. Leslie consented to his coming at so Bessie and Irene Avith Billy and the doctor set out for town. The car i Page was Follo Ved at a respectful distance by or. Charles faithful hired Man on horseback Quot just to keep an Eye on the Rig and see that the girls reached Home the others soon followed every one voting it the most enjoyable a a fair that had Ever been held in Maple Valley. The doctor and Billy could not find words sufficient to express the Delight they had experienced that night and hoped the ladies would remember that there were several months of this leap year yet and that such a Happy season Only came once in four years. As Irene and Bessie drove Home alone under Luna s Brilliant beams they talked Over the events of the party and both were pleased to pronounce it a Success in every respect. Quot except Quot Bessie said with a Gay laugh Quot we have neglected one of our grandest prerogatives Avrich the year and the occasion yield our Quot what is that Quot Irene asked yawning a Little. Quot stupid what do you suppose ? Why to pop the i question of Quot of what we have missed if Billy had declined my heart and hand one of those Silks in Jones amp mix Ray s would go far toward Healing the bloat. And i have missed my Chance to secure either for we Avon t have the audacity to Manifest own preference Quot no Quot said Bessie Quot and or. Homer is just too bashful to retune the compliment. It s just too bad Quot but or. Homer avas not. He is paying 3essie marked attention Yoav. And Rumor has it that he held a private interview Avith Farmer Charles a fear Days ago. And Irene she has showed Bessie a Lovely ring which she says Bill wants her to Avear. Fremd Iii the biggest eaters. Quot it is curio is to study the appetites of different nationalities and the amount of food they annually consume Quot said a Avell kno Avn doctor. Quot englishmen Are the biggest eaters i u resume. Are they not doctor Quot queried the re Orter. Quot not acct Ding to carefully be ared statistics. The i Arisian although i it i it i it ulary sup k be l to make u it in Quality Arhat he d est Quot to require in Quantity strange to say consumes Gnu e annually than the londoner. Ten result is arrived at by a get feral Avera. \ and is about As Sci Mittic As any Oik slum old desire. The Frei a Are Liy far the largest Consumers of fruits and a vegetables although the English think they Are gradually bemoaning a race of vegetal let aters. Tui comparisons Are interesting. Thu a Ergo i Arisian is credit Ihl Avith consuming annually in Quantity 115 pounds of apples against ten it londoner s 05 funds and g ounces. In pears tie Frencl Mian is far ahead Avith a record of 170 funds and 1. A ounces to John Bull s 3i pounds and 5 ounces. To carry the comparison still Furtun i la simply say that the larger amounts Are credited to the parisian and the snut ller to the londoner peas 3 pounds and 8 ounces g funds and 15 Oum is carrots 7 i funds and 3 ounces 37 Point is celery 11 ounces 6 to ids and 13 ounces cherries 2 pounds and 13 ounces 20 pounds and 11 ounces plums and Damson 17 pounds and 12 ounces 183 pounds and 4 ounces and raspberries 4 ounces 2 pounds. But there Are some foods that the londoner consumes Travice As much of As his neighbor. The briton eats 173 pounds and 4 ounces of potatoes and the parisian Only 49 pour ids and 4 ounces. The average Cousin option of cabbages cucumbers onions tomatoes and is also greater in London than in Paris. With these the French Are by far the largest Consumers of fruit and vegetables. I think the americans would Espial the English possibly but not the Freud h. The English eat More beef perhaps Tolian any other new York mail a circus dress Iii room. The dressing room of a circus re sents a Pur scene during a perform Ance. The dressing tent is divided by curtains it ight to ten feet High into three different compartments. In one the men dress in another the a Omen make their toilets and in the third Avrich is the first entered from the exhibition tent the animals to be used in the different acts Are made ready for thu in Kavork the horses saddled and bridled and the trick animals dressed. In the men s dressing Root Avith the bar nun Over 150 individuals at a time Are re Moa ing their str get garbs and getting into their ring costumes. Look in this Deji Arment in the morning. Ashen Iio performance is going on. And you Avill see Only four or five rows of closed trunks More than 1.50, stretching in tia e or six lines through the s Ace. On l osts four feet High at intervals Are Small Square Talle tops and sip Iare 14x14 Inch Marrcus. The tables have Chalk and by Siutiti stains and there a it Marks of much visage of them. At these tables and before these mirrors the clowns and other performers make up. The trunks Are arranged in exactly thu it same order in every to Avn. Each Man has his place and he can go into the tent in the dark Ami place his hand on his tii Ink. All nationalities Are Here commingled. Y of can see a Devitt Arab among his comi Anious in All conditions of Costuna a or nudity sitting piously Reading his Koran and japanese acrobats carefully preparing themselves and their children for their act in the ring. All the performers Are on hand at f o clock and when they go Home after the Perfo Nance their trunks Are packed and locked and so Ashen we leave a City the thinks Are lifted onto wagons and can red away Only to be deposited in exactly the same Oriler in the next town in which we free Preas. To be pitied Quot How is it old fellow that Ever since you were married you come to the club so hungry and yet your wife has a really excellent Cook Quot Quot of yes but just As soon As i relish anything she becomes wonderful Flea. Let is put our Flea under the Micro scope. It seems to be clothed in a sort of Armor formed of Brown overlapping plates that Are so exceedingly Tough Asj to be almost . Its head Iai Small and very thin and it has a single Eye upon each Side. This Eye is Blacks and the rays of Light scintilla the within it like Sparks of fire. Puget managed to look through one of these eyes and he found that it diminished in size while it multiplied them in number a Man appearing like an army of fairies and the fiame of a Candle becoming a thousand tiny stars. From the shape of its head and for other reasons the Flea is supposed to use Only one Eye at a time. The offensive ave Apon of the Flea is composed of two Pali or feelers Tavo pierces and a Tongue. When it feeds it stands erects thrusting this sucker into the flesh Ami it will eat without intermission until distil red for it voids As fast As it swallows it food. It is interesting to put sea eral in a Glass and giving them a piece of raw meat see them All standing on their Hind legs to suck up its juices. Their manner of breathing is still undetermined. But it is thought most probable that the a receive air into their bodies through Small holes at the end of the Pali. The legs of a Flea Are marvels of strength and elasticity. They Are joined to the body by Long tendons that Aci it like wire Springs. In making its leap Avrich it is said can cover 200 times length the Flea draws the leg close u it to the body and then it out Avith great Force but the impulse i proceeds from the first joint alone the others Only increasing it by their Sti Etc while the leap is being made. Fleas Are possessed of great strength Btl it tells of a no Chadic Avo made a Gold Chain As i no As his Finger that a Ilea dragged after him. And a Golden Chariot Avii i he threw also bin Jiley a rites of a in the strand Avaio had an Ivory four wheeled Chase Avith a coi Ichuan on its Box dra Avn by a Flea. Thu same Man aft Erward made a Carriage Avith six horses a Coachman four persons Insi Ltd it it. Two footmen behind and a postilion of one of the horses All of a Liili was Drav no Gay a single Ilea. Latrielle mentions a Flea Avrich dragged Silver Cannon of Twenty four Titues its own a eight mounted on a heels. And showed no fear Ashen it avar charged Avith inn order and fired off. Bene says Liat he Saav three fleas drawing a tiny Onui Ihus that a pair Drav a Chariot and that a brass Cannon avar dragged by a single one. There Are several varieties of fleas but they Are so Nuich alike that thu in Difei fences Are interesting Only to scientific people. The cat Flea Avill do As Well As any to Shoal us the process of Breeding. During the Spring and summer months she Simily drops her eggs into the fur of the cat but in the autumn and Winter she glues each firmly upon a hair. These eggs Are so Small As to be barely visible to the naked Eye but under the Micro scope they Are very Beautiful looking like the Loa Eliest pearls and Are i perfectly translucent. The Flea deposits Nearh 200 at a time running about and Dro Jiing them Here and there. They soon Ratcli into Small Avite footless Vorms. In from one to Tavo weeks they go into cocoon. Nothing can be prettier than this cocoon. I Avish i could show it to you but will try to describe it. It is like a flask of Clear Glass tinged at the Edge with Peai by tints and dotted Over Avith Gold. The Little Sleeper Avit Liin lies in a Circle is Rose coloured and looks like the delicate Petal of a Floater. In about six ave eks he reaches maturity. At first he is not larger that a mite but when Well fed grows quickly in size and strength. Fleas Aie quarrelsome and great fighters. When several Are confined in a Glass they Avill stand on their Hiil legs striking at their opponents Avit the others and Roll Over and Otu Eacle other losing legs and ant Simuan Ltd at last giving up their lives in the till there is a record of a Flea which Lia etl ten Days after such an encounter Avith no Ante Tina three plates of his Side broken a one Eye Glt be and Avith Only four legs and these Cut Oti Quot to the first joints. Fleas ire supposed to feel a or at antipathy to Avorn Vood and other bitter herbs and in England the country Pelt i ple have a habit of placing these about their cottages for the purpose of banishing the . , in the Swiss novel custom. A novel custom is observed in Iii Tuu cd of St. Ives Hants England. A correspondent describes it Quot on a table in the Church at the a Laucel Avert placed six bibles and near them a Box and three Dice. Six boys and six girls solemnly Avat Ched Over by the vicar and a Croad of i parishioners the Cav Dice each three times to see Avrich should have the six bibles. Three Avent to the and Oliree to the girls. This remarkable custom dates from 1g78, when or. Robert Wylde bequeathed �50, of Avrich yearly interest avas to to silent in buying six bibles not to Cost More than 7 shillings to Pence each to be cast for by Dice on the communion table every year by six boys and six gilds of the lately the communion table has not been used for the purpose it being considered an improper use.
