Tho only noticeable peculiarity in his appearance was the fact of his bang's, which he wore down to his eyebrows, his forehead being completely hidden by the adornment. When he appeared in Mr, Edward McSwcency's office, the commissioner •noticed this singularity, and asked the young man about it. Boussard looked embarrassed, and then replied, in French, that he wore uis hair in this manner to hide a mark on his brow. "What Is the mark?" ho was asked.

Played by the Mli- chleTODK Rodent*. The latest narrative of the queer do- Ings of the Florida wood rat, tho .best known of them all, conies from Mrs. C. F. Latham, o'l Micco, Fla., says St. Nicholas. Previous to the destruction by fire at the old Oak lodge, year bo- fore last, it was often visited by a pah of very sociable and quite harmless wood rats, who nested in a palmetto hut near by, and made it their homo until some cats came into tho family. The wood rats were big-eyed, handsome creatures, without the vicious look of a common rat, with fine, yellowish-gray fur, white feet and white \inder parts. Inasmuch as they never destroyed anything save a pair of Mrs. Latham's shoe strings, which they had to cut in order to pet them out of the eyelet holes, they were tolerated about the premises, and here are somo ol the queer things they did. They carried somo watermelon seeds from the lower floor and hid them upstairs under Mr. Baxter's pillow. In tho kitchen they found some cucumber seeds, and of these they took a tablespoonful and deposited them In the pocket of Mr. Baxter's vest, which hung upstairs on a nail. In one night, they took eighty-five pieces of wood from a box of bee-hive fixtures and laid them in a corn-box. The following night they took about two quarts ol corn and oats and put it into tho box from which the bee-hive fixtures came. Once Mrs. Latham missed a handful of pecans, and they were so thoroughly hidden that she never found them. About a year later the rats realized that Mrs. Latham had "given it up," and lol the pecuns suddenly appeared one day upon her bed! "When you go through an "Indian camp you can see red and green sacks standing against the sides of the tepees, carried on the backs of little girls by means of a blanket which is fastened at the waist with a broad leather belt, or being- rocked to and fro bv tho wind in the boughs of the cottonwood trees. These sacks are la- dian cradles. Sometimes, if the camp is going on a loag journey in search of game or for -water, or to escape a war party, two of these sacks are fastened together by stout straps and swung over the back of a pony, one dangling on each side, like the baskets on a pack mule. But as a rule the horses are left for the mea and boys to ride, and th« papooses are either carried by the ffirls or packed away on a "travoise," -which U the only wagon the Indians have. ' SEABCfflSG FOB A FLAT. Highly Edifying: Experience of Mr. and Mrs. Westsida. rind » Snltmbl* Hmblt»tlon In New JTork Ii ft Ta«k EequlrlBtr Tirel««» Energy, Unlimited Putienca and Some Cheolc. [Special New York Letter.! Eight or ten years ago it was the almost universal custom in New York to move on the 1st of May. This custom has, to a great extent, become obsolete, and now there is quite as much moving done on the 1st of October as there is on May day. In fact most tenants no longer sign leases for any stated time, but rent by the month. This arrange- "-WK AKE COINS TO MOVE," SAtD SIRS. WE6TSIDB. ment is mutually satisfactory to landlord and tenant. If the landlord rents the adjoining flat to a family, some member of which plays on the piano at unseemly hours, or does anything else to make life a burden to the neighbor, the aforesaid neighbor simply moves out. On the other hand, if an objectionable tenant has gained a foothold in a flat house, there being no lease, the landlord can protect himself ana the other tenant by summary legal process. Thcra are, however, quite a large number of people who prefer to move in the spring, no matter how comfortably they may be situated. Mrs. Westside is a lady who makes it a point to move every spring on general -principles. Her husband, who would rather have a pitebcr of common molasses poured down his back than move to a new flat, onco expressed the opinion that even after they got-to Heaven Mrs. \V. would insist on moving somewhere else in the spring. One morning, not very long ago, they were seated opposite to each other at the breakfast table. Mr. "VVestside was calmly smoking his cigar, but thero was a puzzled expression on his face. For several days Mrs. Westside had been abnormally affectionate toward him. Jt is one of Mr. W'estside's tae- ories that when a married woman is suspiciously affable to her husband slvs is either afraid oJt him or is engineering a scheme to get money out of. him; she is preparing to coax him into doing something he would ordinarily object to doing. He knew his wife was not in the least afraid *of him, hence the puzzled expression on his face. It must bo >nc of th" oth'ir two causes for artificial affection. "Charles, are you very busy to-day?" she asked, in a soft, flute-like tone of voice. "No, Carrie, I haven't anything in particular to do to-day," he replied, incautiously, walking right into the trap. "I am so glad to hear that. Then you can go right along with me and help mo hunt a flat." Ten minutes later they were on an elevated train on their way to "inspect" a perfect gem ol a house with hard wood finish near Central bridge. It was Mrs. Westside's intention, in case she could find a small house, to rent it instead of a flat, and take boarders. "According to the advertisement," said Mr. Westside, with a sneer, "thig house must be bnt little inferior to the TDK SITRLT <AN1TOK 'WHO SMOKES. celestial mansions" described in the Bible." "Of course, you must try and see how disagreeable yon can be," replied Mrs. Westside. When they reached the house they found it was a tumbledown sort of structure, situated near Harlem river. 1 'Why, the cellar is half full of water." exclaimed Mrs. Westside. "Yes, mum, but only at high tide," explained the owner, who was shoeing them over the premises. "At all other times it is as dry as a bone." Taking the cable cars over to the opposite side of the city, they nest inspected "an elegant flat with all light rooms." The janitor did not remove his pipe while talking. It was only when he expectorated that he made that concession. Most of the rooms received a dim, religious light from a dark, mysterious dungeon, which was called ' -a well" The janitor explain ed that there was a "Jantail" gas burner in each room in case more light was needed. Mr. Westside remarked that the clothes presses were very dark, and pretended to be very much astonished when the -janitor explained that thev were bedrooms, not Clothes presses. "Why, of course, they are bedrooms, although they are not very large," ijaid Mrs. YVesiside. "I should say not. They are about as big as a commodious coffin," returned her husband, with a cold. cynic- ai laugh. The next dat was only a fen- blocks distant. They walked there, and MT. Westside tool-: occasion to comment on how noisy the neighborhood was. "But I dare say there will be. so many children in the house that, after ; all, the quietest part of the house will be the outside.' 1 he remarked with an exasperating smile. His wife merely gave him one of her looks, which, however, spoke a whole library. The janitor did not smoke, nor did he wear a coat or vest, but he calmly picked his teeth while reluctantly im• parting- his information. He also yawned wearily from time to time. "How do you like it?" asked Mrs. W—~. "Oh, it's a gem! The Croton bugs are holding convuntion.s on the floor and running races up and down the walls; but, to offset that, just come to this window and see what a lovely view we will have of the neighbors' shirts, petticoats and underwear." The janitor explained that the Croton bugs were really beneficial as they exterminated the moths, but even this enticing inducement did not have much effect on the flat huutcrs. "Now let us try some other locality," said Mrs. Westside, with a determined expression. "I am willing to keep this up all day,'' said Mr. W , rosig-nedly. • Tm 1 ike the man who killed a skunk. After he killed the first one, he got desperate, and killed six more. Now for the next little gem with a 'hardwood finish.'" The janitor at the next flat was a colored man, whose tongue made two thousand oscillations to the minute. He explained in glowing language how there was a miraculous attachment to the kitchen range by which all the smells went up the chimney, while the heat wurmec] the rooms and a dark winding labyrinth which he called a hall, but which reminded Mr. Wcstside of the "Chamber of Horrors 1 ' in the Eden Musee. "There is only one objection to this flat," said Mr, Westside, "and that is that the ceilings are too low and the rent is too high. Now, if the landlord would only raise the ceilings and lower the rent we would move in on the 1st," .The janitor was not sanguine that the landlord would seriously entertain THE LOQUACIOCS COLORED JANITOR. any such proposition, so thev consulted A Physician Talks, THE REMARKABLE STORY "AND AFFIDAVIT OF DR. LEWIS' BLUNDIN. Afflicted With Fmnlytt* for Twenty- fl-re Tcan—A C«§e at World Wide Intereit. (From the Philadelphia Timei.) Lewis D. Blundin wai born in '41 »t Bridgewater, Pa., and is now a resident at Hulroeyille same state. He went through the war as private, sergeant and hoipital steward of Company C. 28th Pa. Volunteers. As a result of an attack of typhoid fever in Qa,, his kidneys became affected and this finally developed into spinal disease, which lasted through his army service. In '60 he was mustered out and entered Jefferson Medical College, Phila., as a student from which he graduated two years later. The remainder of the story is best told in bis own words: "One day, after I had graduated, I was lying on a'sofa at my home in Manayunk, when I felt a cold sensation in my lower limbs as though the blood had suddenly left them. When I tried to move them I was horrified at the discovery that I was paralyzed from my hips to niy toes. The paralysis mu'eomplet* and a pin or a pinch of the flesh caused no pain. I could not move a muscle. I called in Dr. William C. Todd, of.Philadelphia. He made an eihaustive examination of my case, and announced that my trouble was caused by uifiamtna- tion of the spinal cord, and that I would likelv have another stroke of paralysis. I consulted Dr. I. W. Gross and Pr. Pancoast, of Jefferson College, Philadelphia, and Dr. Morehouse, of Philadelphia, with the same result. -^ "One day last September I decided to try Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pole People. I had always been troubled with a son of vertigo after my first stroke of paralysis to gucb. an extant that when I sot out of my bed my bead would swim and I had difficulty in saving myself from falling. My appetite was bad, digestive . organs ruined and no assimilation of food. In addition to DJV manv other ailments, rheumatism held a prominent place. By the time I had finished the first box of Pink Pills I was compara- tivelv free from these minor ills. Firs-t one ail would disappear, then another until the pills got to work upon the foundation atones of my trouble—paralvsis. Before I had taken the six boxes of pills, I was sitting in my chair one afternoon, when I felt a curious •ensation in my left foot. Upon investigation I found it had" fleied, or in other words, become movable, and I could, move it. i">ni that time on my improvement .was steady and it was not Jonp before I was walking around on crutches with little or no discomfort It was three Tean before taking Pini Pills that I had Wn able to use the crutches at Sy time; and I feel sure that Pink Pills have done me more good than «11 the doctors and «JJ the medicine in the country and as theT»re not costly I can easily afford the *l3«m to Wore me tiu»15th d»r of May 1883.

TJie next flat on the list could only be seen by a permit, so they went to the real estate office. A very pompous little man with a bald head told them very impressively that he would expect flrst-class references. He went on at some length to tell about how high- toned his tenants had to be. Itc seeded to regard his visitors with suspicion. This nettled Mr. Westside, who i-as u.lrcad3' exasperated over the experiences ' he had undergone at the hands of janitors, so, assuming 1 a very haughty air, Mr. Westside asked: "I hope the neighborhood is a very aristocratic one, otherwise it would hardly be worth while for us to examine the apartments." "The neighborhood," replied the real estate ag-ent, somewhat taken aback, "is all that could be .desired by the most fastidious." "Ah! indeed! Any of the 'Four Hundred' live in the immediate vicinity?" The agent was obliged to admit that while some very, distinguished people lived in the neighborhood, none of them actually belonged to the highest order of New York aristocracy. "I'm sorry to hear that," said Westside, shaking his head. "What do you »ean by such talk?" said Mrs. Westside, when they reached the street. "It means I am tired and disgusted hunting flats, and il there is any more o:f it to be done, you can do it by yourself. However, I will look at just one more ' gem with a hardwood finish.' " "This elegant apartment," said tho janitor, who was a natural-born orator, "is close to everywhere. It is only a short distance to the lordly and picturesque Hudson, withia sight of the majestic Palisades—" "Hold up, there," said Westside, "according to your advertisement this flat should have a southern exposure. Where is it?'' The janitor tried to hedge by saying that the advertisement was written by the owner. "Well, he is a patriot. He knows no south and no north, and I guess he is a little shaky about the east and west. However, what was it you were saying about this flat being centrally located?'' "Yes." resumed the janitor, "it is close to the principal theaters; there are three saloons in the neighborhood, all of which keep open on Sunday. You arc close to Central park, and there is a savings bank right across the way." "Yes, that is all very nice, but as yon want $50 a month rent.' the savings bank cuts no figure. .. After we have paid the rent, we will have no earthly use for a savings bank. Good morning." And this ended the firstday's effort of Mr. and Mrs. Westside to rent, and it is just such an experience . as nixie flat hunters out of ten have to go through, ALEZ. E. SWEET-. Little Nell— Ooo!

Yet a well-known EnglUhl doctor in Cliina has just certified fromi his own personal experience that tbJui art is regularly practiced in the flowery j kingdom.
