BU80NACO., CHUMS AND CADETS. Oarria Careless Desorlbes a Naval Academy Bali IOOPTIUGHT, 1894.1 Kit has turned doctor, and I'll have to look up ft new chum.''She ohums with the boys altogether now, and they think she's an enormously good fellow. II you go to a reception and see a dozen or more men radiating about a common center, you'll know Kit is the center. It is funny to see her moving about with her little flock, taking on additions at every turn. It exuites curiosity and tho mon join the orowd to see what the attraction Is. After they pot there they stay, for Kit is. always at her best when she has a good audience. Bhe i» more in her element than ever now, for since she has entered the profession it Is an understood thing that her friendships are purely platonic. There are -two obstinate fellows, though, who persist In thinking that she'll get over this professional freak before long 1 , and settle down into a nice domestic little wile for oneol them. Tom Is always at her elbow, .ready to take her to see a patient, or to the opera, or down the bay. "It's very convenient, you know. I really couldn't get along without some one to do tho little things." "Hut, Kit, what aro you going to do with him? You can't keep on this way. forever. What does he think about It?" "Oh, he thinks I'll marry hta* sonw d»y. Well, perhaps I will. Who knows?" Who knows. Indeed! Nobody ever knows what Kit is going to do next. I would w soon have thought of her turning preacher as doctor. But I believe she will marry Tom some day. It will get to be like a plot In 5 novel. There will come » place where she will either have to kill him off or marry him, and I think she will take the easiest w»y and marry him. However, Tom's devotion oan't keep other men away. "You know I always did get along irtth men," she will say when you talk THAT WOT TOU1TO OFFJOJS8. to her about it. "Somehow girls never like me." That has bean my experience, and perhaps that is why Kit and I always got on so well— because there was no one else to ohum with. I don't know what I'm going to do now. PerVaps I'll ^advertise. jBpw WOUld this do?.- '.T..'..'J ;'••.': , •'— " --'•" i.> tt ' .friendjirvni!

She is a perfe'e,*jgftm.to keep a secret, but she wi^i'l>«CC.»e-T?ay^&ny attention any mo^r : i.SrOp into h«r, w offloe" to i»v«;*:littl« ; ShMa8hioned chat-with ;&r,-»fia-i* JsW^Jn't out, she has her ?lnlrjgsbn, and^eets mo with: "Awful sorry, Kid, but I've got to see what's the matter with Jimmy Flynn's "Oh, Kit! Kit!" X exclaimed, "if you must do this sort o« thing, why don't you hunt up some respectable patients?" " "Experience, my dear. People h»ve a convenient habit of being built on the same plan, and if I oan learn how to cure the Flynn baby's measles, then I can begin on the grocer's baby and so on up the scale until by and by I'll be killing off the aldermen's offspring Oh, this is a great profession! There's a chance to rise in the world. But really, now, you must excuse me, or that baby'll be gone before 1 get a chance at it." So that was the last of her, and 1 had to keep my secret to myself. It was all about the fun I had with a sailor cadet, and if Kit had been the least bit like her old self she would have been crazy to hear it. The story began away back last Christmas, when an indulgent aunt of mine overlooked my follies sufficiently to Invite me to spend the holidays with her in Washington. The cadet wanted to get away from the barracks. He couldn't get oft unless he went to visit a relative, so us he had none nearer than far off Texas, my aunt became a relative pro tempore for the homeless sailor boy, and, of course, that made us cousins. It is remarkable what a horde of relatives those cadets have. Aunts are in demand, and they have such affeotion- st« and dutiful nephews. This was how Bert and I became cousins, and after that the ice was broken. I don't know that there was anything needed to break it, though, for those cadets show a remarkable progressiveness in making one's acquaintance. They rarely see representatives of the fair sex, and when they do there is no time wasted. . So it happened that, after we had finished decorating the Christmas tre», the oook having 1 retired, ;Cousin Bert •rid I were «ent to. for»jre j for* lunch, and all the eatables seemed to have taken ftlffht- But that, as MrT Kipling 1 says, Is another story, and it's too old to tell. It WBB decided that I should como to the next hop of the naval academy, bnt I sprained my ankle on the only skating trip I took this year—and the stupid thinff I went with didn't know any better than to offer me his arm to help me homo. To think of such a romantic situation and no one there to appreciate itl I had beprnn to think that it was all up between TOO and the cadet, when my aunt sent for me to come to tho May hop. I flew to my milliner (as the fashionable folks say), and in u. twinkling my gown was forlheommff. To make a long Btory short, I went, my cadet was rciue once more, and the donee—well, if you over go, wear your flowers on your shoulders or out of the way somewhere. Those Washing-ton girls are simply incomprehensible. They flock to the cadets' balls at Annapolis and never enjoy themselves so well anywhere else. Yet if a government swell wore to grip them with the grasp of a cadet they would cut him dead, but the man IS TBK ABH or A.

It is very rare that any barbarian ventures upon the floor of tho uniformed trippers of .he light fantastic, but the night I was there, there were three disconsolate individuals in dress suits who couldn't find a programme that wasn't filled nor a girl who wasn't ''t^o tired to promenade." They were only obscure civilians and having no buttons on their coats didn't count. .,The most delicious thing- about these cadetsiH their variety, lor they all come from different utates and none of them talk quite" alike. . Uncle Sam ob- jectitb dancing after midnight, and we .had hardly begun when we had to stop. ;Perhaps ;that was why he ran the.risk of.being rolled in irons or some horrible fate, for breaking the rule that no cadet shall linger on doorsteps or elsewhere after he has done his duty as an escort. But linger he did, ostensibly for the lobster that we had ordered sent from the depths of the hotel kitchen, and lie had just remarked that something •was better than lobster and had made me promise to stay next day and see ths morning drill, when—my aunt oouffhed. She bad been to put away the things and -hurry up the lunch, for she's the moat discreet chaperon in the world; I'd rathe* have her along than not. Then he »ald he must rush to the barracks before night roll was called; but he never could have made it, for it was too late then. Well, something dreadful must have happened to his oadetship that night, for when we drove over to the drill next morning he was nowhere to be seen, but we were consoled by a nice young officer who told me, with a twinkle in his eye, that "young Texas was on sentry duty and couldn't leave his post." Bnt even this cloud had ita •liver'lining, .for I might never-have THEY WKBB NOT had a chance at that officer if things hadn't happened just so. Anyway, I guess they didn't drown him nor shoot him, for his card came with my Invitation to the June ball, and goodness knows what will happen, for he graduates then, and it won't make any difference.

I have observed the army of people passing through these mirrored walls daily, and find that where one woman looks at herself in the glasses, ten men survey themselves with satisfaction. Why, I know dozens of men who come several squares out of their way every day to walk through here to.look at themselves. Of course some of the glasses are so arranged you can scarcely help getting a look at your form, and no doubt the women take advantage of that for stolen glances, but a woman always sees to it that she is in shape before venturing from her own mirror and feels at ease on the streets. Men rush from thslr homes half-dressed,"'and they are forever taking their hats off, so they never know how they look,and are always glad for a chance to find out. Frequently men will stop and comb their hair before the glasses, arrange their ties, collars and cuffs, and make me nervous lest they take off their coats, but you never see a woman do that. • Yes,,my; observation is that men are-more, vainthan womein."—Cin- cinnati Tlmes-Stae.

Manoel, Chlko's Ble Brother, Arrives at New York, We It Five F««t Six In ITI» StocklDCft. and Strong Enough tu Knock Out Corbntt -A Miming Link of Hiiro Intercut. Mnnoel, a big- brother of Chiko, tlio chimpun/.«e, came to New York and the land of liberty recently on the Kti'iunship Olimlti from Lisbon. Hut, with nil tins liberty that teemed in the land, Manoel diiln't irot any. and his attendants and keeper and physician, during the process of taking- him ashore, took extreme precaution to keep him from joining the curious crowd that (fathered about his cnffc. This was due to temper that Manoel had displayed all the way from Lisbon to the Hook, which the bracing ocean airs had failed to cool. In addition to this, Manoel, standing- five feet six in his (stocking feet, is more than a match for the best three 'longshoremen that ever wrestled with a eotton bale. Taking him all around, Manoel may be called the Samson of the anthropoids. His arms are three feet four Inches long 1 , and around the biceps a tape measure stretches a little less than two feet. There is a standing wager at the Zoological gardens in Lisbon that no two men can haul a rope through Manoel's hands, and although the directors of the zoo raised the ante to $1,000, the athletic chimpanzee has not been worsted. Manoel's connection with the human world began a decade cr so ago on the banks of the Eiver Cubango, in Angola. . He and a few other missing links of his family were disporting 1 themselves In the ancestral tree when they were attacsked by a band of negroes. The happy household scene gave way to one of carnage, and when It was over Manoel and presumably Chikowere carried away to captivity, leaving the parent chimpanzees dead behind them. Manoel was taken to the Angolan court, where he had for associates the favorites of the king as well as the.monarch himself. But the king grew tired of him and shipped him off with the few favorites that had survived the rigors of royal African hospitality. So in this way, about nine years ago, Manoel arrived In Lisbon, a royal gift to the Portuguese king. The king of Angola intended that Manoel should become a pet at CIJTKO'S BBOTIUCB, MANOEL. the Portuguese court, bnt as his education in etiquette had been neglected in the African wilderness^ he was turned over to the Zoological garden. His life in the Portuguese capital began under tho tutorship of Sig. Antonio Felix, with whom he became quite unreserved and even intimate. Sig. Felix is a Portuguese don, with a striking growth of Juzzy black whiskers, and with these, it is said, Manoel is accustomed to toy affectionately. Sig. Felix has in return become greatly attached to his hairy friend, and has descended from the post of tutor to that of valet de chambre. It is said of Manoel that he is always ready to eat and to do full justice to tbe repast set before him. He begins the day with a light breakfast- usually a quart of coffee, a similar amount of milk and half a dozen eggs. Luncheon to Manoel is a serious affair. It begins with half a dozen oranges, followed by turnips, bananas and figs, in courses. At sunset Manoel receives his dinner, a meul not quite as heavy as the others, but one in which he takes exceptional satisfaction. It consists of crackers and bread and a pint of vin ordinaire. This pint of wine is one of the few. small vices which Manoel ban. Another is the cigarette habit. They say that Manoel will take a lighted cigarette, and, reclining at ease, blow light-blue rings into the air around him. But though Manoe) smokes cigarettes and drinks ho has never been hold up as an lawful ex ample- An Old Time Snrarour Keiort. Long Branch has been a summer resort for one hundred and sixteen years. A Philadelphian in 1T78 engaged summer boarding for himself and family at the Col. White house, Long Branch, upon condition that he provide his own bedding-. He provided not only bedding but meat as well, because the landlady could furnish only-fish and vegetables. The property in quo.stion, including one hundred acres, was sold in 1790 for seven hundred dollars, and two thousand dollars having been •pent in improvements, a regular sum- inor resort was opened. Two years later the visitors at the place saw the battle between the English frigate Boston and the French frigate Ambutr .olda -N. Y. Sun. T HE PAST guarantees the future.

Dr. Rowdier Sharpe gave an interesting lecture in London recently on bird life. Ho mentioned the hoatzin or reptilian bird, which builds its nest just above the water-line, near lakes and rivers; the chicks have little claws or hooks on the end of their unfledfi-cd wings, with which they can climb up out of the flood if it threatens the security of the nest. This was pointed to as a distinct reptilian characteristic, probably retained by heredity from the remote saurian ancestors of the bird race. Equally odd were the megapodcs or mound- builders of Hie Malayan archipelago, which build in place of nests huge earthen mounds ten feet hi/rh and fifty or sixty in circumference, wherein they place their eggs to. incubate. The young could n\y immediately they came from the shell. Dr. Sharpe surprised his audience with the remark that tho peacock's gorgeous "tail" not his tail at all but an aggregation of the long feathers from the lower part of the back. The umbrella bird of British Guiana, deprived of his topknot and bib, was nothing more than a very ordinary old crow. Of nesting curiosities tha example were numerous and varied. There was the industrious "tailor bird" of India—smaller than a robin—which sewed leaves together with a thread in order to form a sort of hammock for tho support of its nest. . An Indian friend of the lecturer had supplied these birds with various sorts of colored cotton, all of which they most thankfully made use of in their sar torial operations. The "weaver bird's" nest would, according to Dr. Sharpe, make an excel lent and very durable football. It was found all over India and the Malay islands, woven tightly together of rushes ferns, palm leaves and so forth, the workmanship being as neat and substantial as any lady in tho room could turn out Other eccentric nest-builders were the tpendulous titmouse and the oil bird of Trinidad, so called on account of its excessively plump, fat, not to soy oily condition, a thing hardly to be wondered at in tho young birds, which arc reared, most appropriately In a ne»t exactly like. a .Stilton cheese. The Trinidad natives go buccaneering after thsse oleaginous youngsters into the rooky and almost inaccessible cares, where they are born at certain season* of the year. Tales about the jealous horn-bill, who imprison* hit wife behind a muddy rampart in some hole in a tree, are, of course, famlHar to everybody. Dr. Sharpe, however, mentioned one curious fact; namely, that if the male is shot, all nil relations in the neighborhood gather round and charitably maintain the widow with a kind of "living subsistence" until the important hatching process Is over. The lecturer called attention to a bird of the family in New Guinea, not larger than a thrush, which constructs a bower six feet high and fifteen feet in clrcumfor- ence. This bird was a very fastidious gardener, displaying all manner of light-colored flowers and berries on a bank of green moss. Dr. Sharpe showed that the wingless owl parrot of New Zealand, although unable to fly from an enemy, yet was capable of throwing itself on to a bed of moss or fern which it greatly resembled in color. The hoopoe of southern Burope was of the "deiert color" and concealed himself when pursued by imitating a scrap of deaert debris. The most extraordinary fact* in support of the imitative theory which tbe lecturer recounted were those having reference to the cuckoo tribes, which have to depend on the. •access with which they oan introduce their «ggs Into the nests of other bird*. The gray-beaded ouekoo was parasitic on tho stone-chat's nest, and it secured access to the ne*t by the resemblance of its male to the sparrow-hawk. The male bird frightened the little birds temporarily away, while the female dropped the egg Into the- nest. There was a resemblance, between the cuckoo and tbe drongo, which was utilized by the former in a curious way. While the drongo was away from the nest the cuckoo could safely deposit tbe egg, because at a distance the drongo would think the bird on the nest was its mate.—Bird Life.' A Rem.dj for Susko llltM. Tho great number of venomous snakes which abound in Australia makes it necessary for the inhabitants to take every precaution against being bitten, and the treatment of such wounds forms an essential part of their education. While I was in that country a couple of years ago, the two little sons of the man with whom I wa* boarding, went out oue day into the woods to cut some fuel. In gathering up an armful of brush tho younger boy, who was only ten years old, was bitten on the flnorer by one of the most poisonous snakes that are known in that region. Without even waiting to call to his brother, who was at work a short distance away, the brave little fellow took his hatchet and cut off the wounded finger, after which he ran home as fast as his legs would carry him to have his bleeding hand dressed. The prompt action of the boy saved his life.—St Louia Republic. A Sc»ly TrioK. Grocer—Yes; I want a pair of grocery scales, but—ahem Hardware Dealer-0, the weiprhtsare all right.

When a sewer is clogged or choked up the accumulations poison the atmosphere in its vicinity and bring about the condiiions that breed disease. We all know that in time of pestilence every precaution is taken, not only to keep ihe sewers free and open, but even 10 remove all decaying matter from the community. The danger of infection. in thus minimized. How few of us who pay taxes for the maintenance of sanitary bureaus for the public health think of an equal requirement for our individual welfare. The alimentary canal is tbe great sewer of the burmn system. \Vhen that is dammed up condi .ions arc generated which invite fevers »nd such diseases as our nature inclines to. Constipation is a clopging of the natural driins, anil nearly everything we suiter from follows this condition. It will not do merely to clear the drains from time to time.
