An Instance of the Kcmarknule Intelligence of the Insects. , The following story, told by an eyewitness, is entitled to a place among the instances of intelligence among the flower animals. A cook was much annoyed to find her pastry shelves attacked by ants. By careful watching it was discovered that they came out twice a day in $eirch of food, at about seven in the morning and four in the afternoon. How were the pies to be protected against the invaders? After many things had been tried without success, it was suggested that ft circle of molasses one inch in diameter fie made around the pies. The next morning, therefore, one of the boya, who had a personal interest in the matter, got up early and prepared his attack. By a quarter of seven every thing was ready, and he took his point of observation. He did not have long to wait, for at 0:50 o'clock he noticed that off in the left-hand corner of the pantry was a line of ants slowly making their way in the direction of the pics. They seemed like a vast array coming forth to attack PRETTY WOMEN. They rto Not took Forward to the 'If me When Their Ilenuty Shall Fade. I The woman who is pretty is far too liable to think that that is enough!; she will conquer her kingdom by mei/ns of it; and when the day of reckoning, the day of fading comes, the kingdom will be already hers by right of possession. Indeed she docs not consider tin' day of fading; it is something as difficult for her to realize as death itself is to the young; it is far off, vague, all but impossible; how is she aver going to look other than she does now, and still be herself? Antl at any rate there are always the means to make tV.c repairs of beauty, and sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. And so, in an average of more than half the instances, she goes dancing off about her pleasure like a fly in the sun, as full of the present, as careless of the future; she makes no preparation for the impending fate which is sure to come if she live long enough; she relies on Mr fair face, her blushes, her dimples, /ier radiance, her smiles, her glances, h/v sweetness. To please, to attract, tcl marry, to marry well, is the mark she/has set before her; and it does not need/cultivation of the the enemy. In front was a leader, who sterner virtues for fflat: the sterner virt- "* " *- 1 ""— "™ A ues arc no j. g- roa tly/'calle(l into account in this quest, have/little opportunity of asserting themselves, or oveii of being was larger than any of the others, and who always kept a little ahead ol his troops. They were of the sort known as the medium-sized red ant, which is regarded as the most intelligent of its kind. Slowly they marched^ along in double flic, until the leader came within six inches of the circle of molasses. Then, evidently, a signal to halt was given, for cvei-y ant stood still, while the lender went on to investigate the unforeseen obstacle. Soon he returned, and instead of taking his place ngain at the head of the army, he went along the line, summoning here and there one— ;he leading intellects, probably—from the ranks. About forty ants out of five hundred stepped out and joined tlie leader. The. General and his aids held 11 council, and '.hen proceeded to examine the circle of 'nolasses. Certain portions of it seemed to be assigned to thc'different ante, and each selected unerringly the point in the section under his charge where the stream of molasses was narrowest. Then the leader made his tour of investigation. He went around the entire circle and decided upon one particular spot as the narrowest; his aids joined him there, und then, one being left to guard this Harrow point, the others returned to those who were still in*line. The order to march was given, and the unts all made their way to a nail hole in the wall ut which the plastering was loose. Here they broke rank and set about carrying pieecs of plaster to the place in the molasses which had been agreed upon ns the narrowest. To and fro they went from the nail hole to the molasses |, at 11 :!iO o'clock, they had thrown n bridge across. Then they formed themselves in line again und marc-lied over, and by 11:45 evU'y ant was eating pie.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. LATER NEWS.

The Novel Mannrrl" "tt'hh'h It Doctor Curfiil a Case ol'Mitlarta. None know the value of the imagination in therapeutics better than flie doctors, who sometimes, with entire credit to themselves, put quite as much imagination ns inediciiw into their patients, and with perhnpH better effect, long ago a physician told an amus- ng illustration of this. ,IIo had been varned, he said, by a brother physician f a certain rascally impostor who was making the rounds of tine profession with n assumed case of malaria. The real mrpose of his visit was blackmail. One [ay a man exactly answering this man's [eseription caine into the house office of his physician, and, after detailing the symptoms of malaria, asked Ihe doctor treat him. "I asked him," said the doctor, "to step out info the -yard with me. As soon as I got him safely outside I walked up to him and gave him he best thrashing I ever gave any body in my life, ending it by kicking him down to the gate. To my surprise he made little, resistance, and when I re- eased him at the -gate, saying, "There, I think that will cure you,' he responded, humbly: 'Thank you, doctor,' and .vent away. In a few days, to my utter astonishment, he cume back to tell me that he was much bettor. 'litit, doctor,' lie suggested, mildly, 'could you kick a Little easier this time'. 1 " Then," said the doctor, "I began to talk to the fellow, and found that I was altogether mistaken in the case. This poor fellow actually had malaria and was no more a blackmailer than I. 1 treated him thereafter with less powerful remedies, but he always declared that no treatment I ever gave him did him the good that one thrashing did. .'And did I ever tell him of my mistake?' Certainly not. Why should I? It helped cure him."—X. Y". Sun. Wunteil Ills Own. A Detroit lawyer received a letter from Texas the other day on which the postage-stamp was of an issue current fifteen years ago, and on the envelope of which there was a request to "return if not delivered sometime pretty soon."

Nor is great intellectual cultivation in the scheme of otir pretty woman's life; according to luW plan of action it is entirely unnecessary. Who cares for syl- Icvrisms, lectun-s, instructions, she unconsciously armies from rosy lips? Who will stop to n& if the bi-ight eyes hare dulled themM'lves over dry pages of scholastic Ion'. Let who will be learned, it is enough i'or her to be gay nudhappy. What, thi-a, has our pretty creature left for the dim passage;* of middle age, when beaAy has fallen away, but there still is Iifift the desire to hold captive what on// beauty gained? The time is coming/When there will be deep crescents ^und the mouth whose lovely' curves Miiive been dragged down by llaccid,muscles, when there will be fine spider-web lineu about the eyes, when there will be hollows in the cheeks, when the red and white of the skin will have/become blurred and mottled, or. overlaid with yellow ssllowness. when perhaps there will be present in tho vacuous face only "that divine smile which has lost the two front teeth?" Let the pretty girl remember that in the darkness of that middle passage tlie beauty that she had before she entered it will not signify; all faces are in the dark together then, the girl that was plain with the girl that was beautiful; the wre,':k of beatity signifies then no more than the wreck of what never was beauty. It is the sweet voice, the kindly manner, the burden of what is said, the tenderheartedness of what is done, that tells with any effect then. It will not be long before she arrives at this time, which, in comparison to the blaze of youth, neighbors close on the dark; and she will need then all with which she can have filled her intellect and fed her soul, all that wit and virtue and breeding can have given her, in order to retain any thing of that kingdom to which in the early days she felt herself bora by right divine.—Harper's Bazar.

The theory of Dove, has been given most credence, lie believed that the hailstone passed rapidly from the cold air to the warm, moist air, and affain from the warm air into the colder, thus alternately talcing on a jacket of moisture and freezing it around the nucleus or heart. The formation of the nucleus itself, it is conceded, is from the snowflake in the cold cloud, which," being xvhirled'about, forms a small ball, about which subsequent layers congeal as the ball is tossed about into the atmospheres of diiferent temperatures The hailstone, from its varying shapes a«d angularities, shows that it has had a wild and irregular career in the sky, sometimes melting into crooked shapes, then being toss«d upward and congealed rapidly. It takes but ten minutes, so the raeteorolbgists say, to form the largest hailstones known. 1'robably the worst luiil-utorm that ever occurred in this country was that of June lli, 1882, at llubuque. Iowa. For thirteen minutes, beginning 2:85 p. m., hailstones fell, some of which were seventeen inches in circumference. The largest weighed one and three-quarter pounds. They exhibited diverse formations, some of them having knobs and icicles half an inch in length. Others were surrounded by rings of different colored ice, with gravel and blades of grass im bedded within. The foreman of the Novelty Iron Works stated that he melted two which had living frogs in them.

A good story is told hi the privately- printed "reminiscenes" of the late Dr. S. K. Lothrop concerning old Dr. Kirkland, whilom president of Harvard. One evening the president and a certain Prof. Popkin were sitting together, and the conversation turned upon smoking. The two worthies were agreed that it was a bad habit, and they agreed to give it up, as both were addicted to the use of the weed. Some tune afterward at a meeting of the faculty, which took place in the president's study, the cigars were passed around, and Dr. Kirliland took one with the rest. When the box came to Prof. Popkiu he declined the cigar, observing with a pointed emphasis: "I keep my resolution." "An excelent plan, Dr. Popkin," cool- Styles and Colorings Equsi to foreign.
