A young photographer, when asked •What sort pi subjects prfcsente'd the , a'tefet • difficulties to him,; feared Ith6iit a inoiaent'B hesitation, " Babies." "Wot instance," he continued, "I took photographs of a little iO-months- old felloW the other day in six different positions. Yesterday I sent proofs to his mother, and today she brought them in. ' " 'I'm sorry,' she eaid, withdtit any obvious grief, 'but none of thenettega- tlveswilldo.' " 'Not one of the six?' I inquired, though 1 was prepared for what was to follow. " 'No,' she said, 'I'm afraid not. Yon See, I like ibis one very well, though, of course, it doesn't do baby justice, but his Aunt Ellen says it's an absolute caricature of the dear little fellow. The one she likes I don't care for at all, and his papa says he should never know lor whom it was intended, it looks so cross, and baby is such a sun- shinychild. " 'The one he likes, this smiling one, I shouldn't consider for a moment, for it makes baby's month look so much larger than it really is. " 'His grandmother ohoae that one, but as Cousin Fanny said, there's a very queer look to the child's eyes in it —very queer! However, she likes that one where he's almost crying, that sober one. You ought to have heard baby's grandfather when she said she liked it. " 'He really decided the thing, for what he said seemed so sensible. He asked me why I didn't have some more taken and see if there wouldn't be at least one that would really look like 'baby. Now, when can he sit again? It's hard for me to spare the time, but yon See 1 it is the only thing to be done!' "— Glasgow Herald. t>6<-tot* Differ.

STROKES OF A RAZOR. tBIIicnhetfc Cromwell. Chromwell legends are so ubiquitous in England that it is a real relief to lay bne's hand upon a bit of solid fact seating either to the protector or hie family. Elizabeth, the second and favorite daughter of Cromwell, married John Olaypole of NortbborouRh, and appears to have spent a considerable portion of ber 12 years of wedded life In his substantial fourteenth century bouse. Oarly'le asserts Elizabeth Olay- pole to have been "a graceful, brave and amiable woman," and of her home that it is "now ruined—patched into a farmhouse." The second statement is not characterized by his usual accuracy, .and the first probably needs some modification, for Elizabeth Olaypole is credited with some turning of her head over her father's elevation, and at a wedding feast is reported to have exclaimed, when asked why tho wives of the major generals were absent, "I'll warrant you, washing their dishes at home, ns they used to do." Not a particularly "amiable" sentence that. Cromwell seems to have had somo insight ,of her little weakness. "Tell her," he wrote once, "to take heed of a. departing heart and of being cozened with worldly vanities and worldly company, which, I doubt, she is too subject to." It is agreed by most authorities that John Olaypole himself was little enough of a Puritan, but let it stand to his credit that, after Oliver died, he provided a haven for his widow for tho rest of her life in this manor house.— Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. CHEAP STAMPED ENVELOPES. How Many Do Yon SnppoHe It Takes to Shave a Man? "Now tbat you've finished shaving me, how many strokes of the razor did it require?" asked the man in the chair, as he straightened up to have his hair combed. "That's pretty hard to tell," said the barber. "Of course it is. But you've been iu the business how long?" "Fifteen years." "You ought to know by this time about how many strokes of the razor it requires to shave a man, supposing that you go over his face a second time.'" "I might make a guess at it." "All right. What's your guess? Remember that I have a hard beard." "Well, I should say about 125." "You're a good guesser, I don't think. Some time ago I got into the habit of counting the strokes of a razor every time I was being shaved. It's a good way to employ your mind. In shaving me you just made 782 strokes with the razor." "I wouldn't have believed it." "No man believes it until he takes the trouble to count. In my easel never knew the number to fall below 500, and it has gone more than 800 at times. I call it a stroke every time the razor is brought forward and then drawn back. I should judge that there are no fewer than 500 strokes in a first class shave. You remember that, and probably you can win a few bets."—New York World. Dank Impertinence. The Philadelphia Record tells of an old Pennsylvania farmer who recently came into possession of a check for $200. It caused him a great deal of anxiety, and for a long time he could not muster up tho courage to have it cashed. Finally, while on a trip to town, he summoned up nerve enough and, strolling into the bank, presented the check. The teller glanced at it hastily, and then, after the fashion of his kind; brusquely asked, "What denomination?" "Lutheran, gol durn it! But what's thet got te\v do with it?" as brusquely replied the old farmer, to the great astonishment of the bank official. It required, several minutes' explanation before the teller could get the old man to understand his question, and then the latter took his money and departed, with sundry growls derogatory to banks in general. • Kqmil to the Occasion. In 1840 a great convention was held in Baltimore by the young men of what was then known as the Whig party for the purpose of ratifying the nomination of General William Henry Harrison for the presidency. There was no hall in the city large enough to hold the crowd of delegates who attended. The convention accordingly met on the Canton race track, and when the great Whig orator of this state, who was chairman of the Young Men's national committee, arose to call the meeting to order he was so impressed by the vast ness of the assemblage before him that instead of the usual formula he exclaimed, "The nation will please coma to order ("—Baltimore Sun.

When Thomas drove up to delive the usual quart of white mixture, th gentleman of the house kindly inquired "Thomas, how many quarts of milk d you deliver daily to your customers?" "Ninety-one, sir." "And how many cows have you?" "Nine, sir." The gentleman made some remarks about an early winter and the state of the roads, and then asked, "Thomas, how much milk per day do your cowe average?" "Seven quarts, sir." "Ah, urn!" said the gentleman, as he moved off. Thomas looked after him, scratched his head, and all at once grew pale as he pulled out a short pencil and began to figure on the wagon cover: "Nine cows is cine, and I set down seven quarts under the cows and multiply. That's 63 quarts of milk. I told him I sold 91 quarts per day. Sixty-three from 91 leaves 28 and none to carry. Now, where do I get the rest of the milk?

JVIany Londoners have visited the Italian district, which lies in the neighborhood of Theobald's road and Hatton Garden, and eoruo with inquiring minds have strolled up Leather lane and watched the Italian ice cream venders and fortune telling women with pretty love birds, intermingled with the dirty, noisy, street hawkers, common to all London slums. It is amazing to learn how these Italians crowd together in the poky little houses of the courts and alleys. Generally a house is hired by an old padrone, who sublets to as many of his countrymen as he can respectably squeeze in. The cellars are utilized as Bleeping apartments, and iu the morning as many as 20, even 80, men will emerge from the bowels of the earth, blinking and winking in the daylight after n night spent in the cellars under small dwelling bouse. A whole Barbers oil the Ocean. One of tho most important persons on board a well equipped ocean liner is tbe barber. If he is gifted with a good business instinct, he is iu a position to make a good denl of money. To the average man shaving while at sea is a difficult and hazardous opera tion. Ho therefore calls into requisition the services of tho ship's barber, a man •who by long training is qualified to •wield the razor with skill and safety, no matter how much the vessel rolls or pitches. He is always one of the most heavily "tipped" officials on the ship. If the ship travels on a route with interesting ports of call, the ship's barber makes il his business trf lay in a stock of native kuickknacks and curios of all kinds. Tho inexperienced traveler is natu rally a little suspicious of the native peddlers who swarm on board with their wares directly the ship is at anchor. He prefers to purchase his mementos o" foreign travel of the barber, who, hav ing bought his stock at wholesale rates is able to retail the various articles tc passaugers at prices little if at all higher thau those charged by the native tradesman.—Exchange. Under Net* Contract* the Went Cftft Sell Them for $1.80 Per 1,000. Within a short time It 1® expected that the postmaster general will issue an order reducing the cost of stamped envelopes and newspaper wrappers. This is made possible by the extremely low bids received for doing the work. The government does not seek to make money out of the people la the sale of envelopes, but endeavors to put their price near the cost, reports the Washington Star. It is Interesting to note the immense sums paid by the government for envelopes In the pas*. Thus in 1874 the price of the envelope most used by the mblic was $3.90 per 1,000 to the government, and the people had to pay $3.20 per 1,000. Four years ago (and the department s now operating under this contract) :he department awarded a contract upon a bid of $1.30 per 1,000 for the same envelope, and figured on selling them to the people at $1.80 per 1,000. The government will be enabled to furnish envelopes under the new contracts at a much lower price, rt Is understood that the reduction will be in the neighborhood ol 50 cents'per 1,000. Under the new Did a man can go to any postoffice and-purchase envelopes at $Sli30 per 1,000 already stamped with two-cent stamps. This is approximately but 13 cents per 100 for the envelopes, or, to get it down rmwh finer, only four cents for a package o>f 35 envelopes of the best government grade. THE CORN KERNEL.

These may be designated (see cut) as a, the coat, or hull, of the kernel; b, the httrd glutenous layer underneath the hull much .thicker at the sides than at the crown; c, the chit, or germ, and d, the starchy matter constituting the chief body of the kernel. The germ Is about 12 per cent, of the kernel, but it contains nearly twice as much mineral matter and three or-four times as much oil as all of the rest of the kernel. The germ Is also rich in protein, but the chief part of that constituent is contained in the glutenous layer.

"Well, it was short." "Oh," said the bishop, "it is better to be short than tedious." "But," replied Canning, "you were that too.'' Athletic Missionaries. Two English home missionary workers were recently introduced by the Kev. A. J. Eobiuson to a Birmingham audience iu these words: "You Birmingham chaps have a lot of athletics, and quite right too.

The Sea Gull and the Fisherman, In the fishing village ot Aaahmithie (the Mueseloraig of Scott's "Antiquary") you may frequently witness sea gulls flying into the houses of the fishermen aud partaking of food from their bauds. One of these sea birds was in the habit of staying in a fisherman's house all the year round except at the breeding season, when it left. Quite recently, while the gull was away, the fisherman removed his home from Auchmitbie to Arbroath (the Fairpor of Scott's "Antiquary"), distant some 3% miles from the former place, taking up his residence in South street of Ar broatb. The fisherman never expeotec to Bee his old t'rieud the gull again. I was therefore much to hisastonishmen that be beheld a fortnight later the sea bird come walking into his new resi deuce with stately steps to resume his old familiarities and household ways with his housekeeper.—London Lady. An English Authority Declare* That Riding Makea the Feet Much Larger. Mark some of the attributes! c-f the cycling heroine as she will be, and compare with the languishing sisters of a past decade, says St. Paul's.. We find already a muscular, healthy, practical creature, whose dread Is not of cows or mice, but of the puncture fiend. Her figure Is naturally well developed, ln.coDsideratlon.of which home truth let us pray for the ultimate removal of tbe "lissom form" and "willowy waist" from the storied page. It will follow, as a matter of course, that "toying with the wing of ortolan" will go hopelessly out of fashion, foritisian accepted fact that the appetite of the bicycle heroine is "rudely "ealthy." Moreover, we mention it with bated breath, we are told that the feet c-f the bicycling girl are gradually increasing —in size, notinnumber—although.con- siderlng all the marvels which are attributed to the bicycle, we should not be surprised to bear that It had effected the development of a third limb. This last fact, however, we should advise the novelist to ignore. No lady ikes to have the saze of her feet overestimated, and the nearer Iver size approaches to sevens the more rooted Is tier objection to having even the bare truth hinted at. Once let the Idea take root that cycling has this effect, and from that hour the number of fair cy- clistsi will dwindle. A city dweller who had read in. papers about how in distant parts of the country, where there were no daily; pa-pers, the government weather report was posted daily in the local post office, where the farmers and others Interested could see It, was himself Interested to discover that that Same Weather report, of the one for this locality, is put up in the post office hefet he has found it regularly in the branch, post office where he goes to buy his stomps and mail his letter*, says the New York Sun. There is Very little farming, land around the branch post office, the land thereabouts being devoted principally to bricks and mortar; but the city dweller who reads the notice there feels himself thereby put quick in touch, as the saying goes, with the agricultural interest, and he feels himself impelled, if not to go and get in his hay, at least to get out his goloshes* Though he may already have read It In his evening paper, the weather report seen here appeals to him with a new and novel interest. As he turns in hero from a busy thoroughfare and walks up to the bulletin, he can't help thinking of the man In cowhide boots and slouch hat stepping, at that very moment perhaps, from a muddy country. road into some far-distant post office to scan the bulletin there. And this sort of thing makes him feel that we're all citizens alike in this big outfit; and that, while the government may not always perhaps (jet the prediction exactly .right, there's nothing mean or skimpy about the distribution of the bulletins. _ , _ TERRIBLE JUDICIAL ERROR.

This 1 is what has been, done by Dr. Wolff, of Stra<S'burg. He bases his conclusions on 1,071 cases of accidents among the working classes. It thu&appears that Monday is not less unlucky than Friday when it conies to accidents, and for this fact he accounts by the statement that the drinking shops are most frequented by workmen in Germany on the days previous, viz., Saturdays, Sundays and Thursdays. Fewer accidents happen on Tuesday than on any other day of the week, because on no day are drinking houses so empty a& on Monday. He has also discovered the remak- able fact that the hours after breakfast, dinner and the afternoon, rest, are signalized by most accidents. He attributes this to the lassitude caused by the work of-digestion, and to the use made b}' men of intoxicants during meal times. He also establishes the fact that in factories where the meal hours are greatly curtailed there isi an excess of accidents over the factories where the men are more liberally treated in this respect. Bankruptcy to a huvuge. A correspondent of the London ] Times at Wang-unui, New Zealand, sends us this amusing extract from a local newspaper: "A Maori chief who lost £40 through a white storekeeper going through the bankruptcy court has given the following lucid exposition of this particular branch of British jurisprudence: 'The pukeh'a (white man) who wants to become pakarapu (insolvent) goes into business, and gets lots of goods, and does not pay for them. He then gets all the money he can together, say, $2.000, and puts all of it, except £5, away where no one can find it. With the £ 5 he goes to a judg* of the court and tells him he wants to become pakarapu. The judge then, calls all 1he lawyers together, likewise all the men to whom the pakeha owes money, and he says: This man is pakarapu. but he wishes to give you all that lie has you and so he has asked to divide this £5 among you all.'

In February, 1892, a merch'ant arrived at an Inn there and took a room for the night. In the morning he was found dead in bed and had every appearance of having died a natural death. The "boots," Ivan Pschatka, and a servant, however, both swore that they had seen the innkeeper, Oazek, strangle- the merchant, take money from hifl pocket® and bury it near a certain tree in the garden.

Your own effort* will do more toward satisfying the mortgage on your farm than the political party with which you may be allied. Practical, scientific, well directed, carefully studied work are the farmer's weapons with which to combat adversity and win the abundant prizes nature offers. A disgruntled, apathetic farmer, who thinks those of his calling absolutely lost and can never get out of debt, is a curse to any community. The condition of the farming class of the United States to-day is, in the main, prosperous.

"Mary, sir," she replied at once, and "Mary" was accordingly written in a tiny book and the minister passed on. to the next applicant for baptism. The worried sponsor listened eagerly to what was demanded of her next neighbor, and to her horror she found that the question was not at all intended to learn the name of the sponsor, but was solely concerned with the mime to bo bestowed upon the infant.
