Relieved of Kmhni-ritKsljic In-( cnmbrance.-Home Thlnsl Worth Knowing About Ilo(t� and Other Aiilmuli. i An Interview with it Specialist. In the summer season, when so many families shut up their city residences and go to tho seaside or country, tlio disposition to be made of tho family pet, be it dog, cat or bir Peed. K J'tar a long time lumps of prude rubber .IWilolastio bands hive mysteriously van--labed from the counter of Morrissey's )"aU flight" pharmacy in Brooklyn. Nobody wan ftbleto throw any. light on the a glimpse or "i.loc," a big cat that lives in tho pharmacy. He was at lunch, and was Feasting on rubber band*;. One by ono ho extracted them from their little glass receptacle and munched away with evident relish. Bosworth did not disturb him, but sat still and counted tho nngs as they vanished down the cat's throat. W'h^n forty-three had faded from view "Doc" stopped eating, gavo a wido yawn and stretched himself nit for an after dinner nap on top of a showcase. Having accidentally solved tho mystery, Bosworth vesolvcd to l.nvo some fun at "Doc's" pxpenso, so, after tho cat had been dozing for an hour, ho called him. "Doc" came to tho front quickly. In his hand Bosworth held a largo clastic band. This ho extended toward the cat. "Doc's" eyes seemed to sparkle ns he contemplated the luscious morsel, and without hesitation seized it with his teeth. Bosworth, however, had a good grip on the other end. When the cat pulled, Bosworth pulled, too, but tho little tug of war did not last long, for tho mis-chicvouR clerk suddenly relaxed his hold on the baud, and as it snapped back it caught the unlucky cat a stinging cut on tho end of his noso. He dropped the band as if it were a hot potato, sprang from the counter and ran out of the store with a cry of distress. Since then, although Bosworth and his friends, to whom he related the incident, havo rejieatedly t.ned to induce "Doc" to submit to being hand fed with rubber rings, ho steadfastly refuse* indulge. His abnormal appetite has been cured.-New York Herald. i MIZPAH, THEE AND ME. Apart?

A CltniiKo In tho Manner uf Mnrk�ttn�ont Washington market on Saturday morning. In a former generation the head of the household rose at daylight, aud grasping a huge Imcket betoo* himself to Washington, Clinton or Jefferson market to secure tho choice cut of beef aud the freshest vegetables and berries. Tho leonine bead and massive figure of Gen. Scott could be seen nearly every morning at Jefferson market, and every burly butcher and red cheeked market woman looked for his greeting as n matter of conrse. At Clinton market the heads of the Lord, Lydig, Griffin, Ayinar uud other families of social note did not disdain to put in a personal api�?anmce, and amid tho jokea and laughter that the wit of the society man und tho ready repartee of 'Jie market womau provoked the work of filling tho basket was a pleasant one. Times change, and the grandsotiH of the men who carried their own baskets to market are waited upou by tho butcher aud green grocer at their houses, but somo of the gray haired eons of those venerable men still go down to market Saturdays, aud they naturally have enough imitators to make this pcrsoual visitations feature,on Saturdays especially. This set aro careful purchasers and only buy after examination and study. They kuow what is good uud where to get it, and evidently it pays them to carry their own baskets.-New York Sun. Two Words. Peoplo who wish to send homo telegrams from abroad commonly arrange a system of cipher in order to make the expense as small as possible. A story is told of one man, however, whose ingenuity supplied the lack of any prearranged cipher. A western man who owned a great farm in Dakota was obliged to cross the water for business purposes. For three months he heard nothing from tho man whom ho had left In charge of tho farm, and at last he became some what disturbed. Eie was an illiterate person, though a capital farmer, and the writing of a telegram was a matter of some difficulty. At last he sent off the following comprehensive message: "Is things right at the farm?" Impatiently he awaited the answer. It would be expensive, he felt sure, whether it brought good or bad. news, judging by hia own experience. But his trusty foreman was a person of few words aud strict ideas of economy, aud tho envelope which his anxious employer received as soon as possible contained simply this message, "Things is."-Youth's Companion. A Trno Philanthropist. A philanthropic lady, Mrs. Magunseon. is about to sell her family heirlooms for tho purpose of opening a high school for girls in Ireland. Some of these articles aro TOO years old, and the unique collection comprises belts, cUsps, bracelets, brooches, old wood earrings and spoons. This lady has, by the help of some friends in England, succeeded in erecting a building on a piece of ground which belonged to her, and it is for the purpose of furnishing the interior, of supplying books, and paying teachers that the lady has determined to part with her cherished heirloom. The great test of a woman's devotion to any purpose seems to have been, from Queen Isabella down, the sale of her jewfcla to forward its interests, and it is an iu-lispotable fact that comparatively few women can eh* dure this test of her loyalty,-New York 8un. _ All cigarettes contain, according to Professor Laflin, a competent scier iist aud chemist, five distinct poisons.

On tho eastern coasWof England is a town called Grimsby, and they who live therein-or such of them at least who have knowledge of thy dvmls done by tho folk of old-tell this story to tho stranger who happens into their dwellings: Many years ago, say the folk of Grimsby, when in tho place of this dear town of ours there was but a sea marsh, with tho waters of tho broad mouth of the river Humber lapping it, there dwelt in tho far uft* country of Denmark asimplo fisherman whose name was (Jrimrao. Tho lord to whom he was in thrall ruled over tho whole fair land of Denmark, yet did not. rule of right, but of might. For when tho true king of Denmark, whose name was Uirka-been, lay a-dying he called unto him his friend tho knight Goddard, aud spoke to him in this wise: "Sir Goddard, in many a battle have we fouKht side by side, and at many a feast have wo drunk out of the^mc horn, and so had wo thought to do for mauy a year to come. But to each ono of us Death cometh at his own bidding, and so is it with me this day. Nor would I sorrow overmuch at Death's coming; for well I know that ho will take me to my true love and good wife, llelfeld, who died a year agone, were it not for my little son Have-lok and his sister Swanboion. Now, therefore swear to me, good Goddard, that my children will be to theo as thy children, and that thou wilt cherish this fair land of mino until Havelok shall havo grown to be a man and worthy to receive it at thy hand." And Goddard swaro it, and the good king died in peace. Yet no sooner was he dead than the crafty Goddard took the kinship for his own and cruelly treated the children of his dead friend and master. The maiden indeed he killed, and likewise would he have done to tho boy but that he feared, seeing the-youth was kingly seeming, though but in his fifth year. So tho evil Goddard sent for his thrall Grimrne, the fisherman, and said to him: "Take this boy, tie to him a great weight aud cast him into tho sea. So shall 1 re ward theouith gold and with thy freedom; and thy sin shall be my sin, and on my head aud not on thine it shall lie.'1 And Grimrne took the lad and bound him, and wrapped him in a cloth, and carried him on his back to his hut by the sea, anil threw him upon tho ground tho while his wife I>eif cooked for him his supper. And as ho eat ho told Leif what the king (for so all men now called Goddard) was to do for them, aud what riches awaited them when that the boy should be thrown into the fcoa; and so he lay down to await tho morning, when ho should do as he had been bid. But in the uijiht Dame Leif awoke, and thought it was already morn ing; for, U'hold. tho hut was bright with a great light, tho which, when her eyes were used to it, she saw came from where the child lay. Out of his mouth streamed a ray as if from the sun at noonday. Then Leif was troubled, and awoke her husband, who in his turn trembled sorely and was afraid; and askinK what this could mean ho got up and unbound Havelok, finding as he did so a royal cross on his shoulder. Then quoth Grimrne, "Got wot, wo have here In our hut tho king of Denmark!1 And he fell at his feet and swore fealty; but the boy laughed merrily and paid: "Though I be king, yet am I an hungry one and a thirsty withal." So the flBher-man and his dame brought bread and cheese and milk and set them before the king's son, und when this oue had eaten and drunken he lay down and slept as though he should never awaken. In the morning, while the son yet slept, Grimrne hied himself to Goddard and spoke in this wise: "I have done thy bidding and cast the child into tho sea with an anchor of stone tied to his neck. Now give me tho reward." But Goddard an svvered: "Thou naughty varlet, what know I of any child. If this is murder thou hast douo I shall surely punish thoe. And so Grimrne departed from the castle, marveling at the wickedness nnd falseness of men. When he came to his hut he gathered his goods together and stowed them in his boat, and putting into it also Havelok and Ijeif and her throe sons and two daughters he raised the sail to tho masthead and sailed across tho sea toward the west. He bad sailed thus for a day and a night when a great wind rose and blew the boat on to the shore of England, and tho place where they landed was at the mouth of tho river Humber. Then Grimme built for himself a hut of 3arth, and seeing that he was a clover fish erman, neither he nor his family nor Havelok wanted for bread, for the fish that he caught he and his sons carried in baskets to the towns and hamlets hard by and sold them. Thus lived they for twelve win ters, and young Havelok grew until ho had the stature and strength of ono who numbered twice his years. But it grieved him that be should be idle, aud should have to look to his foster father Grimme for his food and for his raiment, though of the last named it was but little k.hat young Havelok had. Indeed, when the time came that he went to Grimme and said, "I will lie idle no longer, bnt will go to the south country and there work for my own bread seeing that you have naught whereunto can put my hand," it fell out that he had no coat wherewith to cover himself when ho should como among tho southern folk. So Grimme took off his sailcloth enough to make a coat, and cut it, und tho good wife Leif sowed it, so that Havelok had coat. And Grimme, who was now old, blessed him, and bo be departed. Now, he who ruled over Eugland in those days was no rightful king. His name was Godrlch.andhewascalledthe Earl of Cornwall. To him tho good King Athelwold, when heluy a-dylng, had trusted his daughter Goldlwrougu* making him swear that he would use her rightly and would marry j her when sho was of a fitting ago to tho noblest of the land. But Godrich was false to his vows, and did none of these things. In their stead he took for himself the kingdom and shut the youMg queen up in t>� castle by the sea, whicu men call Dover, and she had but small clothing aud less to eat and drink. Now the remembrance of his oath began to vex the wicked earl, and be looked around for a way by which he could break tt and yet not imperil MbbouL While he was dobatlng this his steward, one Bertram, came to Mm and said; "Earl, theie is In my service a youth named Kaxelok, who Is lusty and strong beyond hia fellows, and beyond any man I wot of, although he is bnt a cook's varlet. He came to me a year agone aud asked me food, in return for which be h�wM] tlut wiitm ami carried I lie water for tho household. Scoinw thai In* wan clothed In a single mat. and that he did tho work of four, I had fashioned for him clothes of a proper habit, and now 1 would pray you, earl, to let tho youth bo brought before you, so haply you may chooso him for ft man of arms. I suy this, for that ho Is a grntle youth, and t hat all mon, yea, tho very children love him, in that ho Is not nly strong but Mi'.ho of speech, and hand-dome to look upon." And the earl did nx Stewart Bertram a**ked of him, and when Havelok stopped in front of htm In1 saw that all that wan told of him was truth. And in that hour wicked thought took hold of tho earl. He thought that ho. would marry Gold-borough to Havelok, and so might ho keep his oath nnd bn ik it, Roclng that tho youth was the poorest man in all tho land nnd vet was a churl's son, whom having married the princess would be drast^cd down from her hiyh estate and could no more Im accounted worthy to rule the fair land of Englnnrl. So the carl sent for Goldborough and fur Havelok and partly by hard knocks and partly by threats he forced them both* to agree to his wish, and the twain wero married by tho archbishop of York, for the earl's .castle was at Lincoln, nearby. Then Havelok took his wife, who was i yet to him no wifo save in namo alone, for sho despised hor husband on account of what she esteemed his lowly birth, and the two journeyed northward and eastward to Grimsby, as the dwelling of Grimme was then called and ns it is known to this very day. But Grlmmo was dead and his wife also. ;tnd only his fivo children were left U> well,>nte Iluvdok and his queenly brido. lviL;ht kind was tho greet-Grimme's children gave, and soon they had prepared a great feast in houor of tho iuir. In tho night ns Goldborough lay awake, sorrowing after I he manner of womon, alio saw that tho room was bright, and that he lisht carao from about tho head of hor insbiiud, and she heard a voice bidding her sorrow uot, for that Havelok was � king's sou and ln-lr, and that ho and she should rule together over Denmark nnd England. Then the woko Havelok and told him what sh" had heard. In tho morning Havelok roso and called o.him Grimrae's throe sons, Robert the Bed, William Wendath and Hugh Raven, and onkcd them if they would go forth with him to Denmark, and they answered, 'Ay," and gotrendy their boat, into which they stepped with Havelok and Goldborough. Arriving there they traveled through the land until they came to the castle of Ubbe, a Danish earl, who showed them hospitality and lodged them in tho town near by in the house of a man named Bernard tho Brown. In the night tho house was beset by sixty thieves, with whom Havelok aud his three companions fonnht long and hardly until they had each killed a full scoroof robbers, Havelok, however, was sorely wounded, which when Earl Ubbo saw he had him brought to his own castle, where his own h might attend him. And as Havelok l:iythat night suffering bitter pain Earl I'iibe came into his mom, and saw, as other-* had seen, the tirij-'ht light streaming round his head and tho red cross on hia honlder, and he saw, moreover, that never were two peas like to one another than t he xtrautter to tho dead King Kirka-been. Then Ubbe fell at Havelok's feet and paid him fealty, for be knew him what he wns. And in the morning Ubbe sent messengers far and wide, and summoned all the knight* and all tho barons to come and bow the knee to King Havelok. This all men who heard the summons wero glad to do, for they wearied of tho heavy burdens laid upon, them by tho false King Goddard. But i>orne, Ikuiu: men of evil ways, clung to Goddurd, so that the people wen- divided into two pints, and whim the riu'ht time came Havelok led his, army uirninst Goddard and his men and made them flee. But with hm own hand Havelok took tho slaver of his sister and pave him over to his barons, that, they might judge him. Nor of great length was the debate; but Goddard was hung, and that speedily. So for a time Havelok abo.le with his people and ruled over them wisely, and of the three sons of Grimme he made three earls and gave them lands and cuttle and horses and gold, and all men did them honor. It came about at length that Goldborough reminded her htrsbund of the voice she had heard in the ni^ht when she first knew Hut eiok for the king that he was, and how it had told her he was to rule over England as well as Denmark. So Havelok made ready the warships, and taking with him his knights he crossed tho sea and landed at Grimsby. Here he first had built priory of Black Friars over the grave of Grimme, and then ho set forth to do battle with Earl Godrich, who was already coming to meet him with his army. And bard by Grimbsy was a great fight fought and Havelok won, while Earl Godrich aud his men wero put to flight. Afterward, bow ever, he was taken and slain; and when the English knew who Goldborough was and saw how vuliant was her husband they acknowledged him for their king and her for their queen, so that over two great peoples Havelok reigned. Over Deumark he tn-X Earl Ubbo, while he himself abode in England. So for sixty years did Havelok and Gold borough reign in Englaud, and were just and even in their judgment. Great love bad each for the other, and this love grew anil never lessened till on the same day they died and in the same grave were buried. Sixteen sons and daughters had they, among whom, when they died, they divided the two kingdoms. And this is tho story told, ia short, of Havelok tho Dane.-Horace To wnsend in Montreal Star.

Among tho earliest symptoms of the approach of a thunder storm is tho appearance ou the western horizon of lino of cumulus ("wool puck") clouds, exhibiting a peculiar turreted structure. I say on tho western horizon, for most of our changes of weather come from that quarter, and it has been proved that thunder storms, like wind storms, advance over" the conntfy generally from some westerly point. This bank of clouds moves on, and over it appear first streamers and then sheets of lighter upper clouds (cirrus, .or "mare's tail") which spread over the sky with extreme,rapidity. The heavy cloud mass comes up under this film, and it is a general observation that no electric explosion or downfall of rain ever takes place from a cloud unless streamers of cirrus emanating from its upper surface are visible when tho cloud is looked at sideways from a distance.-New Orleans Picayune, Will Tui.
