What one Grocer says: —" I hire clerks who can sell the yoods that I tell them to sell—and of course I tell them to sell the goods on which i make the most money. If they can't do it, 1 won't have them. That's what I hire them for." This is an actual fact related by a grocer to our salesman —and it's a common fact; \vc have it daily. So. you see, when they tell you that some worthless or dangerous washing-powder is "the same as" or "as good as" Pearline, that's because it pays a larger profit. Too large, altogether, "if clerks can be hired on purpose to make people take things they don't want and know nothing of, instead of a tried and proved article like Pearline. If your grocer sends you what do not order, be honest—send it back. sw 'CATALOGUE Light Roadster. Weight, SIB IDs. TO ALL Scud foror.e — it "'ill interest you.

But it Is the good who die younp, and fate can therefore have nothing 1 in store for me but a hideous, hooked, wrinlded old aye, sr.ns teeth aud eyes and all the rest of the perishable perquisites of my faulty KCX. Uph! What a horrible prospect! It almost makes me patient witli my present troubles to think of a time to come when I would cheerfully curl my hair if I had any to curl, and when I v/onld be rejoiced to have my jawbones gouped if tins would restore the pearls which were lonjr since cast into somebody else's "temporary Bet." I pot to thinking about this last March, and it just happened to be Lent, so I set a picture of an old crone, with just room enough to eat spoon victuals between her nose and chin,' on my mantel piece for a warning— though I must say I don't see liow this ambitious pug of mine conld ever train itself to look down in the world—then sat down to improve my mind as a sort of slow suicide, I'm going to try this every Lent, and I be- lieve I can get good enough so I won't iiave to live to be more than sixty or ;eveuty anyway. It didn't seem as though I could be- jin on religious books, so I took Plntr irch's Lives to pet used to it. In these, I read the life of a man who had a groat deal to say about the compensations of old age. Poor man! lie had to make some excuses for not committlnjf suicide, for he lived to learn Greek at eighty, though I believe ho died soon, after that, and no .. I looked all throc;,'li the book to find something about old women, but that benighted individual lived in an ape when women didn't count, and anyway ho probably couldn't have said anything consoling, for it's a great deal worse to bo an old woman than an old man. Even you men will agree with me on that. Just fancy yourself, my hand- some youth, married to a wizened, wrinkled, sour-dispositioned female! I tell you. boys, this is a serious question. I heard a squeuky-voiced soprano singing: "Will You Love Me When I'm Old?" with a fervor that showed she feared the worst, and probably set the gallant suitor to thinking. It isn't a good plan to sing such songs, unless you have a good-looking, well- preserved, elderly relative near by to support your side of the question. Have 'yon never speculated when a lovely young girl is ushered In by a mother who is anything but handsome, whether the young woman would grow to look like her maternal ancestor? If not, oh, youth! It Is time for you to begin, ere your young- fancy has even lightly turned to thoughts of love. ' That majestic queen of yours, with the "slightly aquiline" nose which is BO distingue now, may develop an alarming proboscis In her riper years. Those lovely eyes, with their limpid, unfathomable depths, may seek their level somewhere this side of the back of her head. And, you infatuated youths who worship your goddess for her pearly teeth, just for one brief, sane moment imagine what her grace will look like when these ivory molars and Incisors are replaced by rattling, grinning semblances of their former beauty. Haven't you heard wise old ladles, who ought to know, say that pretty babies seldom grow., up ..to be pretty ThU it have been told that I was the sorrow of my mamma's heart when I wore pin'iforus. Poor mammal I fear the 1-horn in her llcsh is only sinking lecper, from the way sho shakes her lead iit me and sadly murmurs: "My wayward child! I wonder if you eve* will learn even to 'assume a virtue.'" I had my photograph taken the other day. The artist was the dearest little Frenchman I ever saw. lie had sucli.i fascinating smile and said pretty things with a transparent insincerity that was charming. When I asked him to make me u» good-looking as possible the gay deceiver replied: "Ze mademoiselle ees perfection ectsclf. I <>nn merelec hope ,o equal za soob/.hcck." I was thankful th;it nobody was there to hear thin .')Cfc!i. "Do you meun to say, sir, ,!i:!.t yon c:mdo nothing for this nose if mini 1 '.'" cried I, in a despairing tone. "Mademoiselle hits pritUte nose. Zo nose cos zi! kind "u.t et's—permanent." I \v;is lilled with wonder as to whether tsome noses had a fashion of ing a week's notice like Komc of ,!;i'ir lowly possessors, arid looked in- juirin/rly at the- speaker. My expression had its effect, for, turning to a group of actress'photo- Traphs' on the wall, hw pointed out somo luscious looking girls with the ovcliest majostie, high and mighty nor-es expressive of ..disilain, pentnve- ncss, pride, despair and all the other Jt tragic emotions which actresses assume when they have their alleged .ikencsses taken. The photographer called my attention to the Blight aqulliuity of the noses which ho pointed out, and went on to Kay that these HOSCH would get moro and more hooked an they grew older. 'But mademoiselle's nose, eet will .mprove viz age—see?" I drank his words in as the hart tha water brook, for upon the subject of ihis objectionable feature I urn extremely sensitive, and any consolation which a kind-hearted soul finds it, in iis conscience to offer is received with gratitude. This suggestion of his also gave mo food for thought, and I proceeded to eat it with avidity. I became so much interested in tho subject that the Frenchman took a sheet of paper and sketched some of the women, and then beside them he drew pictures of what they would look like when they got old. Every one of the patrician maidens developed a hook or at least a hump, in her old age, as you will see by tho picture which I begged from him. In fear and trembling, I asked him to sketch a few with noses that did not turn down, but they nil retained their shape. However, they developed other characteristics which were nearly as bad as the other noses,all of which I submit to the rising generation as warnings against marking for beauty, as it is without thought for tho morrow. Now there are, without doubt, some sweet, pretty old ladies in the world. You look at "them and think how beautiful they must have been to withstand so well the ravages of time. Generally, they are people of very amiable dispositions who have led peaceable existences with their husbands. Now, there is a point worth considering-. If the object of your affections shows a tendency to quarrel with you at the early age which she at least assumes, beware of her! Then there is the girl whose face le •wreathed in smiles and dimples. She is pretty now, but when tho mask of youth drops off, will there be enough attractive features to make up the deficiency? Perhaps so, and this is the kind of beauty that lasts. Maybe It would be better to link yourself to a girl whoso beauty is in the future tense, even if you could not find it In your heart to love her much now, on the "love me little, love mo long" principle. Put yourself In the position of tho man who sings: "Only one mother-in- law do I possess, only one quite too many I confess." Imagine how you would feel to oe tied to the efflffy of your mother-in- law years after that worthy has been UW to rest. Pause on the brink of tw««nrinaHmem»ttwrBeMon Wd be- think you whether you are likely to love her when she's old. CAHIUE CAnr.Ljiss. THE CONFUSION OF^ NAMES. iomo L'lRfnl Information Aliout Cocoa and Similur Product*. A striking example of the ignorance of tn>iiie;vl tilings on the part of dwellers in temperate regions is to be found in the confusion into which the irtieles variously termed cucao, coca, coco, cocoa have been gotten by ship- icrs, tradesmen, dictionary and encyclopedia, and the public following them. There are four widely-sepa rated vegetable growths that are variously mixed under these names. These ire, with their proper pronunciation and scientific and common names: Cacao (kuw-kow), theobroma cacao; the chocolate berry tree." Coca (ko-k;ih), erythroxylon coca; the coca leaf brush. Coco (ko-ko), caladium csculentum; ,he coco root plant. Cocoa (ko-kwah), cocos nucifera; the cocoamit palm. The first, cacao, is well placed in the gonus theobroma, a nnme given it by Linneus. and signifying "lood for the rods;" the specific name comes from ie Portuguese "c-iicau," in turn lerived from the ancient Mexicwn 'cacantl." Its name is almost iini- .•ersally soolled cocoa in the United States and Knghnui, and confused with the cbco-.mut of tho palm tribe, with which it has far less natural affinity than has the rose with the penr. All the dictionaries confuse or misapply these names. Even the Encyclopedia [iritnnnica tnlks of the "cocoa tree." and, though ndmiltingthat it is "more iroperly cacao," says undor that head- ng "see cocon." Worcester's school dictionary actually says: "Cocoa, a beverage made of thecocoanut," which s quite as accurate as it would be to lefinc gooseberry pie as a product of ,he asparagus plant. The cacao is a small evergreen tree from fifteen to thirty-iive feet high under cultivation and higher in its native forests. Though a native of America, from Mexico to Peru, it was introduced into Africa over two hundred years ago, where it lias since escaped from cultivation and may now be found growing wild. Its somewhat egg-shaped pods are from five to twelve inches long, with a thick, almost woody rind. Ten elevated outside ridges indicate :i five-soiled fruit: this contains from twenty-five to one hundred seeds, embedded in the sweetish pulp. These are the "cacao beans'' from which are prepared seed. The tree must have plenty of heat and rain, a deep, rich soil,'and but li.tt!e wind. The best cacao is that of Venezuela— laracas cacoa. The cacoa pods are gathered twice a year, in .Tune nnd December. Coasted and divested of husks, the pods become "cacao nibs;" ground into paste, sweetened and Havered, they yield "chocolate;" in a crude, unsweetened paste, "cacao" erroneously called coco: with tho oil extracted, dried ami powdered, -broma; and the oil of the seed yields a non-rancid fat, "cacoa butter," much used in pharmacy. The second of our quartet, coca, often incorrectly spelled cuca, is a shrub closely resembling blackthorn and a native of the Andes, attaining six or eight foot in height, with straight branches and brilliant green leaves. The latter, when chewed, produce a sense of warmth in the mouth, having a pleasant, pungent Uistc. Of coco much less can be said than of the others. So little is known in northern countries that the dictionaries and encyclopedias, with one exception, ignore it. It yields a root, wltich properly cooked, is not unlike sweet potato, and which I have found palatable and very nourishing. It is not of sufficient value, however, to come into general use where either potatoes, bread fruit'or plan tains abound. The last of our quartet, the cocoanut palm, is the most widely distributed of tropical growths, and without exception tho most useful of any single one of nature's products—save earth, air and water. The cocoanut palm, which the Encyclopedia Britannica erroneously thinks should be called "cocoanut," grows from forty to one hundred and ten feet high, and is sometimes two feet iu diameter. The trunk is exceedingly elastic. I have seen trees seventy"five fccihijrh bend in a hurricane till their tops touched tho ground, and then right themselves, uninjured, a moment after. The leaf, sometimes over twenty feet long, has a mid-rib bordered by many lon^ leaflets, the whole resembling a mammoth feather. The nuts grow in bunches of ten to twenty, are twelve to eighteen inches long and five to nine in diameter.—San Francisco Chronicle. Llmo Julco for Scurvy. Probably few persons outside tho industries actually concerned are aware that under the provisions of the British lime juice act the board of trade are empowered to compel the ships' captains to serve out to their crew a fluid ounce of lime juice per day, and to hold the masters responsible -for the actual swallowing of the dose by the men. Any case of recalcitrancy on the part of one of the crow has to be entered into the official log- book, 'and in cose these precautions are neglected the master is liable to a heavy penalty. Thanks to the provisions of the act, scurvy has been almost stamped out.—Scientific American Won At Inline. Titled Suitor-l£ you marry me yon will be a duchess.
