DealtiNg with each pupil as much as^possible In accordance with the needs of his Individual character was advocated by Professor Josselyn, and he gave it as his opinion that a student steould be promoted, not especially for the work he had done, but more for the work which the teacher knows he is capable of doing. *. Professor Josselyn was secured for the talk last night through-^the efforts and at the expense of the lola teachers.

A eorrespoadeat rec«stlr reported vhat he deawibed as i tbe "oorioua freak" of a blackbird flylnff against a parlor wladoir numy timea at the same spot '. ' ' .--•i'lfji Such aa laeldent Is not nooonuiion,) Birds have been knowi to fight for hours at a. time, day a^ter day, with their owB image reflected la a pane xTt glass, peoUag aad flotterlag against the pane and quite exhaustlag themselves la their fury to demolish the supposed rttal. It is aaotber Instaaee of how the arts of oor dvlUsatloa corrupt and confuse the birds: It Is the same with fishes. Darwin tells a story of a pike in an aquarium separated by plate glass from fisfi which were Its proper food; In trying to get at the fish the pike would-oftea dash with such violence agalnstthe glass as to be completely stunned. It did this for more than three months before It learned caution. , Then when the glass was removed the pike would not attack those particular fishes, but would devour others freshly introduced. It did not at all understand the situation, but associated the punishment it had received not witb the glass, but with a particular kind of fish. Darwin's American monkeys proved themselves more "knowing.". When they cut themselves once with "any sharp tool they would not touch 'it again or else would handle It with the greatest caution. Thus they gave evidence of the simpler forms of reason of which monkeys are no doubt capable, but birds are evidently lacking la reasoning powers.—The Scotsman. TALES OF THE TELEPHONE its Exploitation In England Seemed j Impossible Until Queen Victoria Became Interested.'' The United States has eight telephones for every hundred of population, while no other country has half as many. Following the establishment on a solid basis of the American telephone system work for European exploitation was early begun. The re-; suits were hardly encouraging. Five-eighths of the British rights were purchased for |500 by a Providence man, says the National Magazine. After working in London four j months he could not find any one who would put a shilling in the telephone. An English review said of It: "The telephone is little better than a toy. It amuses the English, but is inferior to the well established system of air | tubes." The victory was won at last by Kate Field, who sang-"Kathleen Ma- voumeen" over the telephone to Queen Victoria. The queen was delighted, asked Bell If she might buy two telephones, and It was not long before all England was interested. An exchange with ten wires was opened In London, and In April, 1879, Theodore Vail sent an order to the factory in Boston In Us terse, characteristic way: "Please make 100 hand telephones for export trade aa early as poB «ible.'* Have Qrave Garments Ready. ' In an account of the death, at the age of one hundred and foUr, of Lucy Hlckey at Gloucester there appeared the interesting Item that she was burled in a shroud which she had made for herself i,iany years ago. This may look strango to most people," said a resident of the Enst side, but not to the old-fashioned Jews. I am sure that If you go through any of the tenement houses in this part j of the city you will find In the majority of homes the Sbrbude of all men and women who are married. It Is an old custom to have the grave garments ready, and with some of the people it is considered a shame not to be properly provided in case of death. Tbe garmenta are unually of fine texture and invariably "hand sewed.'" The »13 Fine. ' Courtrooms are not free from superstition," a lawyer remarked. . "For Instance. It^scems to be an unwritten law of the'^bench that nobody shall ever be fined $13. In my seventeen years' experleuce at tbe New York bar J have seen offenders fined nearly every other amount from $1 to |1,000, but no judge has ever defied fate by] Imposing a |13 fine. "^Nothing but respect for superstition prevented him from doing it It wa^ the logical fine. Several times I have labored in the lost cause of unfortunate clients whose fine from tbe standpoint of damages Inflicted should, have been |18, but the Judge had aot- the hardihood to name It: h« ahoiya nadershot or overshot the laark and made fl3 or |14."
