The only real good, original thing yon sent me. Mr. Harris, was written by Eugene Field Alonzo Dowd, of West St. Paul, writes: "I, too, would like also to do business in New York, but am deterred by the expense of living there. I can get twice as much salary there as I can here, but am told by a friend who has lived in New Vork eight years that he cannot on double his St. Paul salary keep the wolf from the door. How is that?" Well, possibly your friend has to keep the wolf from twice as many doors as he used to. That is often the case in New York, I am told. It is quite often the case, Mr. Dowd, that a prosperous man gets into the toils of pleasing people who interest him and obtain control of him, and some day when he has eaten a hearty meal of victuals and dropped dead on receipt of the bill his neighbors are surprised to see two sets of tombstones erected by his two sets of families. You will find, no doubt, that too of ten while a man in a large town is salivating • eventide : elegant he gentle ; ifroui the i death ' jof the [ | simply I •WgMy , " -ati SITTING BULL'S SIGNATURE. the wolf at one door, another animal of the same kind is scratching the paint off Ills other residence. I am sorry to know that these things exist, and no one fcaii be morn pained than I am to see two sets of widows tearing up the greensward and pelting each other with im- mortelles at the grave of one they have loved as one man: but it sometimes occurs, and if you contemplate removing to New York, and your wife favors it rather more thai) you do on account of the great shopping facilities thus afforded, i advise you to show her this piece. Coming ns it does from a. litterateur and man about town it is of great value. C. M., Springfield, Mass,, writes: "DEAR SIR—Praying that you will not throw this letter into the waste basket before reading it, 1 will endeavor to give you the reason for its being written. 1 am a man of 40 years, married, and a constant reader of your work, and can assure you a warm admirer of the same. "But, Mr. Nye, i have a brother who is no less so. Wall, lie is married for the past six months and is a very straightforward, business man, but last Sunday while at church, seated in the same pew, I felt shocked to have him commence playing with his wife—taking her Bible from her, changing rings and fooling around generally to the constant annoyance of others—and the thought at once suggested to me to write you, knowing your remarkably peculiar way of writing on such topics, and suggest that if, when'thinking of a subject to write upon, you should adopt this, it would be read with great interest by a great many, and you would confer a great favor upon me, and hundreds of mankind will call you blessed." There can be nothing more reprehensible than the custom among frivolous people of carrying the customs and eti-. quetto of -the skating rink into the sanctuary. It is far more consistent to stay away from church entirely and read the Sunday paper on some pretext or other than to whisper and play tag through the litany. Of course young people are more difficult to manage in church, and their spirits are more buoyant than those of more elderly people, so they should not be so harshly dealt with: but a grown man with a full head of whiskers who will go to church and whisper and frolic through the service or the sermon may'one day, when it is too late, turn on the fire alarm and get no response. People who have not respect enough for whatever they are attending to keep quiet and listen, or let others at least, do more to make me doubt and distrust the wide open policy of Col. Ingersoll than most anybody else. There are ouly two kinds of more contemptible people. One is the man who baits his lobster traps with his grandparents, and the other U the microbe who writes you'anonymously on u postal card. Cumaiie 111 Fmv, Due Hundred and Twenty-ninth street, writes: -"What should I Jo with callers who come jos» as I am about to go calling myself? ('i.) What sort of man was Sitting Bull, personally? Did you meet him while oil the frontier';" A good way to cut short a disagreeable call is to come down stairs with your sealskin sacque uu. Some keep a winter cloak or bonnet handy for such emergencies, and do first rate without getting a reputation fur rudeness. It is very painful, indeed, to have a string of callers catch and hold you ull through a pleasant afternoon, when you had made calculations on going out and making forty or fifty calls, and feeling sura that with thu bright weather you would find no oiio at home. Sometimes it takes a week in uncertain weather, with more or 'less people at home, to cover the ground yuu might 0:1 u pleasant afternoon go. over in two hours. 2. .Yes, I knew Sitting Bull, and got him to write in, my albiun in the summer of ib76. I had a letter to him from. the Prince of Wales. Sitting Bull was personally very gentle and courteous to his friends, but a moat disagreeable person to invite to your horfse to meet a • mixed company. A friend of mine naked Mr. Bull to come to dinner and meet the pastor at his house at one time, and he said he would never do so again. The great chief was not in good form. He was ill natnred, and swore at table because his luxuriant hair got in the mayonnaise dressing. Sitting Gull was married three times, two of his wives surviving him. He was liberal in his religious views and. bitterly opposed to silk underwear among his people. He. scoffed at the teachings of Delsnrte. and did not go to hear the Rev. Joseph Cook lecture, though at one time he could have done so by walking less than nine miles. Sitting Bull, with better supplies and more encouragement from the war department, would have made a very successful commander, but socially he had no standing at Washington, and so military leaders with less ability but more pull were promoted, while he was kept in the background like a poor boy at a frolic.

The tender age at which the temporary teeth are erupted and the disturbances arising from the irritability induced thereby, make it a critical period in the life of the child. Fevers, convulsions and diarrhoea are quite common accompaniments. Where the gums become swollen and irritable, they require to be rubbed with the.finger, and the child should be allowed to bile on a rubber ring ov a clean silver dollar, attached to a cord. If very much swollen they should be freely Innced. At about the age of thren, when all the temporary teeth are. erupted, the greatest care should be taken for thnii- preservation until they are replaced by the permanent ones. The moment the slightest decay takes place, the child should be UUteii to the dentist where till the cavities may be filled without pain. Rut if it is allowed to progress, very serious results follow; not only will the tooth become very sensitive to contact with food, which prevents proper maslk'ation but they will become painful and abeoss, when It will be impossible to treat and fill them with the best results. Jf neglected, and extraction becomes necessary before 'the permanent teeth are ready to appear, the jaw not only contracts, but the remaining ones move together, filling the space designed for | the pei'iuanimt teeth to occupy, thus ! forcing' these to take invgulnr positions when erupting—or what is commonly i known as crooked teeth.
