T7io «Vrt of LrRTlnB. Among the minor nrt3 that add much to the happiness uf Hfo is that of leaving gracefully after you have paid a visit. It may seem a small thing, hut it is really a largo one. Who does not know the Individual who rises to go and then •tands talking for an hour? And the boat and hostess feel that they must stand, even if they almost drc.p with fatigue, and when the visitor is finally gone they give a sigh of relief and sink Into their chairs. Pay your visit, Bay what you have to say, and when you get up to go do not linger by the way. Do not stand and talk and keep your host- 668 standing. You have enjoyed your •visit, and so, probably, has she; go, then, while the enjoyment lasts and do not linger until it departs and she wishes you would do the same. Some wise man has said that it is better to leave behind you a wish for your company than a satiety, or words to that effect. Men understand this better than women, and here comes in the advantage of a business training again. They appreciate the value of time more than women do, and when they have finished a call they go without the tedious lingering and interchange of commonplaces.— Mlsa Palfrey. H« Wanted a Little Prose. "The pleasure I derive from the scenery and the benefit I obtain from this exercise," soliloquized an Angler as he cast his flies, "is worth more to me than all the Trout in this brook. Trout I can buy in the market, but pleasure and health are not so easily obtained." Just then a Trout seized one of his flics, and after some struggles & felt the. net under It. 'Iho Independent publishes au tuiiiu:ii summary of,, the. statistics of church membership' which ia interesting and Instructive., The latest one. docs not at all bear out the theory that the religious denominations are declining. During 186-3 tho not gain of church membership in the United States was 870,995. The number of churches increased 3,883, the ministers 3,en.). This keopa step very fairly with the annual increase of population tho country over. Of church members in tho whole country there are now 20,607,318. Thus it will bo seen that nearly a third of the whole population, counting men, women and children, are church members. The Roman Catholics have tho largest following, their constituency numbering 7,885,291. Next como the Methodists, with 4,723,881, and theso two denominations divide between them three-fifths of all the church membership in the Union. .Tho Roman Catholics alone have considerably more than a third of the whole number, but The Independent rniys this showing is because that church counts in its census all the children of a Catholic family, while Protestants only Include actual church membership. Children aro not birthright members of the ProtestiMit churches. The larger denominations have more churches than preachers, while the smaller ones havo more preachers than churches. It is worth noting that the Mennonito Brethren, mostly Russian immigrants, have already in our country 420 church edifices and 005 ministers. Tho Unitarians havo, it seems, only 881 church organizations. Tho S \vedenbor- gian, or New Jerusalem, church has 0,000 memlwrs. 'I hope that you will restore mo" to the -.•«ter," pleaded the Trout. "You are seeking Jo;; pleasure anil health, and you admit that you-'-an have them without (sacrificing my life. Continue casting your flies for half an hour longer and in this way you will reci tM.moru than you will by killing me." "Your arguments sound plausible enough," replied the Angler, as he placed the trout in his creel, "but the stook of pleasure and health I can obtain is tin~ limited. The supply.of yuur'qifHn-. i'v "however, limited, and there is a time when a man prefers concrete prose to alv stract poetry. That time will arrive when I find you on my plate at the breakfast table to-morrow."—Now York Herald. Hope. The truth is that a man can better afford to sacrifice his dinner daily for a year than live without hopo for a week. And nature has recognized that it is so. What phrase is more common in our mouths than the simple but significative "I hope?" Nor is tliproflny human being, howsoever forlorj^jt/'rnaterial possessions or howsoever afllicted, who~\vns not originally endowed with this capacity wf hope. Go to- the hospitals, where one might suppose it were easy to find despair in many aspects. The doctor will whisper to you that this or that invalid is doomed, and that he cannot, by all the evidence of human foresight and experience, live one day more. "Well, and how are you?" you say to the sick man, and perhaps you cannot help betraying in your tone tho pity you feel for him, thus hovering between two worlds, about one of which alone, the one he is leaving, you are able to assure yourself that you know anything de cisive. "Oh, much better," ho replies. with strong hope in hia volca and his eyes. "I think I shall soon be well.-"— All the Year Round. An Anecdote of IloUenlnl. One adventure of duaJ Dottesini's "8houlJ~b«iv:iii-'m!>civd." Ho was playing one night at Ant>v<-rp, and there, was a full room, anil coiisiJiTablj curioaii.;/ for his turn to b^jiu. IIo took his place beside his colossal double bans, und com. menced hisi variations. The public were electrified—and HO was tho player. No ' one who knows the doublo basa could say of the instrument that it was squeaky and shrieky. It has its faului. but at least shrillness ia not one of them. The sounds camo forth that evening piercing and pathetic. The player looked terrified; his instrument seemed bewitched, and the sound.4 continued even when the bow was not drawn across the strings. For a moment Bottesini faltered, and then plunging his hand into the internal cavities of his big instrument, ho drew it back very hurriedly He introduced it again very carefully. and took out and held up to the room a cat. The entertainment did not end there. There were kittens to follow.— Pall Mall Gazette. A Young Man's Luck. Mr. G wynne R. Tompkins was a southerner, and a very good looking, refined young man. Ho was modest, too, for n newspaper reporter, which ho was, and a first class ono in his lino. That was reporting horse races and turf matters. He began his career as a page in the 'United"States senate, but drifted about the world till ho nettled into journalism. He had tho knack of knowing tho points of a horse naturally, and ho aided this Intent by carefully cultivating his judgment. His first prominent work in turf matters was done in Washington. His nom do plume was "Greystone." He also did occasionally some work for The New York Evening Sun. Some weeks ago he went to Saratoga to report the rncen there. IIo left New York with flO in his pocket, "and-"HO-property '"'! hopes." The races wero reported watisfactorily, when ono day, about four weeks after ho went away, ho sent in his resignation as turf reporter of The Evening Sun.- Everything was smooth und fair in his relations with tho paper, but Mr. Tompkins wished to go into another business. Beginning with the $10, ho had won between $25,000 and $30,000 on the Saratoga races, and was now going to start a racing stable of his own. lie had won tho money by jsyatemntic and careful^ betting, using his "horse sense." The story is extraordinary, but true in every particular. Mr. Tompkins is probably the only newspaper reporter in the world who over had such a streak of what men call "luck." We, in tho United States, do not begin to appreciate tho value of the right sort of industrial schools. What they can accomplish is well shown in Denmark. Five years ago that country, took seriously in hand tho national dairy schools. Government has since then spent on them $50,000 annually, with such effect that the dairy exports of Denmark have been increased six fold of late years, and there is throughout Europe a great demand for Danish butter. A Grave in Maine. In many parts of Maine aro old graveyards with stones fast crumbling away, but none of greater general interest than one near Hull's Cove, Eden, where a small weather worn wooden cross marks the last resting place of Barthelemy de Qr*>gQJra H'i'l I'JM wiTit Miirin Ttifrpan, Marie Therese was the granddaughter of Antoino de lo Motto Cadillac, a brilliant French officer, who waa at one time commandant of Mackinaw and Detroit, and governor of Louisiana. To him was granted by the French king, in 1688, the lalaod of Mount Desert and a largo part of the mainland on Union river. His granddaughter claimed his estate in suc- oewion, in 1780, and the general court of Massachusetts granted to her and her heirs 60,000 acrea. For a time tho family lived at Hull's Cove. In 1782 they began to sell off the estate until, at the time of their death in 1810, not an acre remained. —Bar Harbor Record. . _.Thg story i« repeated that the relations between tho pope and tho Italian government become more hostile instead of friendly, as time goes on. It is believed, indeed, in many quarters, that the king and queen of Italy have actually been excommunicated by tho pope. If this story be true tho 'effect on tho future of Italy can hardly bo calculated. The crowned heads of Spain and Austria ore his holiness' favorites in Europe. il'lo r.irriiii>Mnnci-s foroMsrrvntinn, rn.iko Mc.h event of prmt importance to as- Dther time can PO much evidence be obtained for determining the real character of the sun and its appendages. Long n.s the science of astronomy has flourished and great, ns has been its nd- vance, it is only within a few years that, bv the aid of -the spectroscope, and pho-- tography, tho nature of the sun nnd its surroundings has been established with tnything like certainty, anil even now tho most widely dilTeront theories aro held ns to the character of the sun's activity. It has long been known that around tho, black disk of tho moon in total solar eclipses a hnlo of.light is seen, bright next to the sun, but fading away more or less gradually into tho blackness around it. This was supposed by tho generality of astronomers ns late, as 1870 to be duo either to the effects produced by our own atmosphere or by tho moon's atmosphere. It was not till later that astronomers wero convinced that this halo or corona w,is a part of the sun Itself, and that from it must be derived the most important clews for settling the mvsteries of tho sun's heat and light. " From the observations of eclipses made recently it is now well known that tho mn as ordinarily visible to us, bounded by tho photosphere, is only a part of the sun. Just outside tho photosphere is a comparatively thin layer of gas, mainly hydrogen, called tho chromosphere; iround this is the corona, thousands ot miles thick, and around tho corona, especially along tho equator, there isncon- Vderablo extension of matter about which little is known. Tho general theory which has be»n built up from a knowledge of these facts and from tho observations of such phenomena as sun spots nnd prominences is that the chemical elements are being continually tossed about in tho enormous atmosphere of the sun and never getting out of. it. The out- 3T layers of tho atmosphere, aro recognized as much cooler than tho inner. Cool or comparatively cool masses of matter are' produced by condensation in tho upper regions from tho hot ascending vapors of the lower atmosphere. These masses of matter, having gathered weight, come under tho influence of gravitation over 'twenty-five times as Sfreat as ours, and fall with_ almost in- ;rediblo rapidity toward the center. It is supposed that theso terrific rains of cooled matter upon the sun produce what aro known as sun spots. We know how small meteorites in our own cold atmosphere are heated to in- landescenco by friction. Their kinetic snergy is transformed into heat. It is QOt difficult to imagine, therefore, that theso masses of matter darting dpwr. Erom a great height above the photosphere of tho sun, creates great disturb- linccs near the photosphere, such as sun jpots indicate, nnd that masses falling into the UiiTnrTiTid gT^;,!!;, lii.;it-r;l ;;tir,r.;; phero-should bo broken up iu_the_htiat- sjeneratcd by their own kinetic energy into hot vapors, producing such expansion that tho down rush is transformed Into ah up rush, which would carry the ihemical elements back to tho cooler air, where they would gradually condense again and repeat tho operation of falling into tho chromosphere. Tho ellect of such an up rush is supposed to bo indi- zated by tho prominence observed. The matter is supposed to be thrown up like the water of ufountain'and like it thrown back,_only_.to_b_p_t<i_ssed_u p_ajj:tl n, but on Bo great, so terrific a scale that the imagination is unable to form a picture of it. If this is the correct theory of the sun's existence, it is impossible to conceive of my limit to it. Elements which wo can only heat into a glowing m;isH are there reduced to a vapor, and by expansion thrown 100,000 miles or more away,only to cool and pelt bad; again toward the center of attraction, there to be thrown off again. But effective as tliu theory is In explaining polar phenomena', it is by no means generally held, and among those holding it then- an.- K>'eat' differences of opinion. The evidence is little better than circumstantial, mid it is only by the industrious w.orU of nst ronouiers, with improved appliances, .that the mystery can approach solution. The study of tho BUM is to us the most important study in astronomy. It affects ns directly. To better understand HIM center af life and heat is to. belt, r und'T.stand our own surroundings, and it is from the observations of those wilt out, in view tho occasional total eclipses of the 'fiun that light must conic. — Providence Journal. . South Carolina sent to northern markets this year 8,000,000 .watermelons. Nearly a third of them went to New York. All the largo eastern cities got away with their proportional share of the tender, juicy fruit which IB dear to the heart of the African, except Boston. Of the whole 1,880 car loads, that city took only 08. What is the matter with Boston? Is the eating of melons inimical to culture? A young lady writes to The Now Orleans Times-Democrat to know the etiquette of certain points in regard to a young man with whom she is keeping company. Thereupon The Times-Democrat retorts: "Cultivated people do not Jkeep_company' with any one. The ex- preseion belongs to the kitchen or garbage barrel." Cruel, cruel T.-D.

"Gloves which are sold us kid are often ruado of human skin," said Dr. Mark L. Nardyz, tho Greek physician, yesterday. "The skin on tho breast," continued the physician, "is soft and pliable, and may be used in the making of gloves. When people buy gloverthey never stop to question about the material of wliich they are made. The shopkeeper himself may be in ignorance, and the purchaser has no means of ascertaining whether the material is human skin or not. The fact b, the tanning of human skin is extensively carried on in France and Switzerland. The product ia manufactured into gloved, and these aro imported into this country.

"I guess you will find a dish rag in some place about the sink," was tho direction tho daughter of tho house gave to the neighbor who had come to help in tho emergency. What she found was a black, dump rag,with the peculiar odor of many stale di«h waters clinging about it. Fever had attacked the different members of this family, and the neighbors wondered If here were not the clew to its origin, as bhe put that dish rag Into tho stove andlmpplied iti place with a dish cloth. One of the most difficult things to teach an ordinary servant g-irl is to take proper care of the dish cloths. After using they should rinse them thoroughly In clean water, and perfectly dry them in the sun In Bummer and by the stove in 'winter. The ideal dish cloth of the model housewife is clean, soft, white and medium sized. Worn table linen Is excellent to make Into dish cloths. Take the worn out napkins, or the most worn parts from an old t&ble cloth; ten Inches square is a good- Bize. Put two.of those squares together and stitch across three or four times on the machine.
