Tarsler may best be. described as having a face Mke an owl and & "body, limbs and tall like those •ol a monkey. His sitting height Is about that of the squirrel. As his «normous optics would lead one to suppose, lie cuts capers in the night and sleeps In the daytime, concealed usually in abandoned clearings where new growth has sprung up to a height of 20 feet or more. Very often he sleeps in a standing posture, grasping the lower stem of a small tree with his long and slender fingers and toes. During his nightly wanderings he utters a squeak like that of a monkey. During the day the pupils of his eyes contract to fine lines, but after dark expand until they fill most of the Irises. From his habit of feeding only upon Insects he has a strong fat-like odor. ?ALMA<»S HMMON, 'HEALTH RESORTS," THE SUBJECT LAST SUNDAV.

Ample Preparation* Uelng Made to Show Bicycles. The wheel, according to the New York Herald, will occupy an honored place at the Paris exposition. Nowhere in the world are there more enthusiastic wheelmen than the members of the famous Touring Club de France, and they have not been slow to avail themselves of this opportunity to draw the attention of the civilized world to the modern wheel with all its latest improvements. A committee was appointed some time ago to see about the construction of a building in which the wheels could be exhibited, and about the selection of a suitable site, and now the news comes that an admirable site has been granted by the authorities in charge of the exposition, and that on it a stately building will • be erected within a very short time. The site is near the-Eiffel tower, and close to the entrance of the Champ de Mars. Anyone who knows Paris will see that no better site could have been selected. All the visitors to the exposition, whether they are interested in bicycling or not, will be sure to pass by this spot, and cannot help being attracted by the artistic edifice that Is to be reared in honor of the ubiquitous wheel. The building has been designed by M. Gustave Rives, and is described by those who have seen his plans as a marvel of beauty. No palna will certainly bo spared so far as ornamentation and other decorations are concerned. Contracts for this and all other necessary work will soon be awarded, and it is expected that the building will be completed at an early date. American as well as foreign .wheelmen will doubtless spend many a if .pleasant hour in this building. Hard; ly a week passes that some attempt is I., not made to improve the bicycle in one direction or another, and if we would find out about these so-called improvements and learn how many of them are really worth anything we must study them at our leisure in this place. That thousands will do so Is certain. Paris has nineteen theaters and four circus buildings. S»o Tour Feet Ache and Burn? Shake into your shoes Allen's Foot- Base, a powder for the feet.

To this day there is a dry basin of rock which shows that there may have been a pool there three hundred and sixty feet long, one hundred and thirty feet wide, and seventy-five feet deep. This pool Was surrounded by five piazzas, or porches, or bathing houses, where the patients tarried until the time when they were to step into the water. So far as reinvigoration Was concerned, it must have been a Saratoga and a Long Branch on a small scale; a Leamington and a Brighton combined—medical and therapeutic. Tradition says that at a certain season of the year there was an officer of the government who would go down to that water nnd pour in it some healing quality, and after that the people would come and got the medication; but I prefer the plain statement of Scripture, that at a certain season an angel came down and stirred up or troubled the water; and then the people came and got the healing. That angel of God that stirred up the Judean watering-place had his counterpart in the angel of healing, who, in our day, steps into the mineral waters of Congress, or Sharon, or Sulphur Springs, or into the salt sea at Cape May and Nahant, where muitl- tudes who are worn out with commercial and professional anxieties, ns well as those who are afflicted with rheumatic, neuralgic and splenetic diseases, go and are cured by the thousands.' These blensed Bethesdas are scattered all up and down our country. We are at a season of the year when rail trains are luden with passengers and baggage on their way to the mountains and the lakes and the seashore. Multitudes ol our citizens are away for a restorative absence. Tho city heats are pursuing the people, with torch and fear of sunstroke. The long, silent halls of sumptuous hotels are all abuzz with excited arrivals. The antlers ol Adirondack deer rattle under the shot of city Bportsmen. The trout make fatal snap at the hook of adroit sportsmen, who toss their spotted brilliance Into the game basket. The baton of the orchestral leader taps the music- stand on the hotel green, and American life has put on festal array, and the rumbling of the ten-pin alley, and the crack of the ivory balls on the green-baized billiard tables, and the jolting.of the bar-room goblets, and the explosive uncorking of the champagne bottles, and the whirl and the rustle of the ball-room dance, and the clattering hoofs of the race courses, and other signs of social dissipation', attest that the season for the great American watering-places is in full play. Music! Flute, and drum, and cornet-a-piston, and clapping cymbals wake the echoes of the mountains. Glad am I that fagged out American life, for the most part, hag an opportunity to rest, and that nerves racked and destroyed will find a Bethesda. I believe in watering-places. They recuperate for active service many who were worn out with trouble or'over- work. They are national restoratives. Let not the commercial firm begrudge the clerk, or the employer the journeyman, or the patient the physician, or the church ite pastor, a season of inoccupation. Luther used to sport with his children; Edmund Burke used to caress his favorite horse; Thomas Chalmers, in the dark hour of the church's disruption, played kite for recreation—so I was told by his own daughter—and the busy Christ said to the busy apostles, "Come ye apart awhile into the desert and rest yourselves." And I have observed that they who do not know how to rest do not know how to work. But I have to declare this truth today, that some of our fashionable watering-places, are the temporal and the eternal destruction of "a multitude that no man can number;" and, amid the congratulations of this season, and the prospect of the departure of many of you for the country, I must utter a warning, plain, earnest and unmistakable. Thb first temptation that is apt to hover in this direction to leave your piety at home. You will send the dog and cat and canary bird to be well cared for somewhere else; but tho temptation will be to leave your religion in the room with the blinds down and the door bolted, and then you will come back in the autumn to find that u is starved and suffocated, lying stretched on the rug, stark dead. There is no surplus of piety at the watering- places. I never knew any one to grow very rapidly in grace at the Catskill Mountain house, or Sharon Springs, or the Falls of Montmorency. It is generally the case that the Sabbaih is more of a carousal than any other day, and there are Sunday walks, and Sunday rides, and Sunday excursions. Elders and deacons and ministers of religion, who are entirely consistent at homei sometimes when the Sabbath dawns on them at Niagara Falls or tfle White Mountains, take a day to themselves. If they go to church, it is apt to be a sacred parade, and the discourse, instead of being a plain talk about the soul, is apt to be what is called a crank sermon—that is, some discourse picked out of the effusions of the year as the one most adapted to excite admiration; and in those churches, from the way the ladies hold their fans, you know that they are not so much impressed with the heat as with the pic- turesqueness of half disclosed foatures Four puny souls stand in the organ loft nnd squall a tune that nobody knows, and worshipers, with two thousand dollars' worth of diamonds on the right hand, drop a cent into the poor box, and then the benediction is pronounced and the farce is ended. The toughest thing I ever tried to tlo was to be good at a watering-place. The air is bewitched with the "world, the flesh and tho devil." There are Christians who, in three or four weeks in such a place, have had such tprrlWe rents made in their Christian robe that they had to keop darning it until Christmas to get it mended. The health of a great many people makes an annual visit to some mineral spring an absolute necessity; but take your Bible along with you, and take nn hour for secret prayer every day, though you be surrounded by guffaw and saturnalia. Ketp holy the Sabbath, though they deride you as a bigoted Puritan. Stand off from gambling holls and those'other institutions which propose ,to imitate on this side the water the iniquities of Baden-Baden. Let your moral and your immortal health keep pace with your physical recuperation, and remember that all the sulphur and chalybeate springs cannot do you so much good as the hniillng perennial flood that breaks forth from the "Rock of Ages." This may bo your last summer. 1C so, make it a fit vestibule ot heaven. Another temptation hovering around nearly all our watering-places is the horse-racing business. Wo all aOmlro the horse, but we do not think that its beauty or speed ought to be cultured :it the expense of human degradation. The horse race is not of such" 'importance as the human race. The Bible intimates that a man is better than a sheep, and I suppose he is better than a horse, though, like Job's stallion, his neck be clothed with thunder. Horse races in olden times were under the ban of Christian people; ana In our day the same Institution has come up under fictitious names. And it is called a "summer meeting," almost suggestive of positive religious exercises. And it is called an "agricultural fair," suggestive of everything that is improving in the art of farming. But under these deceptive titles are the same cheating and the same betting and the same drunkenness and the same vagabondage and the same abomination that were to be found under the old horse- racing system. Long ago the English government, got through looking to the turf for the dragoon and the light-cavalry horse. They found out that the turf depreciates the stock; and it is worse yet for men. Thomas Hughes.the member o£ parliament and the author known all the world over, hearing that a new turf enterprise was being started in this country, wrote a letter in which he said: "Heaven help you, then; for of all the cankers of our old civilization there is nothing in this country approaching in unblushing meanness, in rascality holding its head high, to this belauded institution of the British turf." Another famous sportsman writes: "How many fine domains have been shared among these hosts of rapacious sharks during the last 200 years; and unless the system be altered, how many more are doomed to fall into the same gulf!' With the bull fights of Spain and th bear-baitings of the pit, may the Lord God annihilate the infamous and accursed horse racing of England and America! Now, the watering-places are full o temptations to men and women to tip pie. At the close of the ten-pin or bll Hard game, they tipple. At the close of the cotillon, they tipple. Seated on the piazza cooling themselves oft they tipple. The tinged glasses come around with bright straws, and thej tipple. First, they take "light wines,' as they call them; but "light wines' are heavy enough to debase the appetite. There is not a very long road watr2r;r^ 8 w^^tK- ^KLIFEFOIOTMMS ^IM^^MM^^M Hea|th toMfi, Arehatfibo, The river of God. which la full of water. Water of which if a man drink he shall never thirst. Wells of water in the Valley of Baca. Living fountains of water. A pure river of water as clear as crystal from under the throne of God. These are watering- places accessible to all of us. We. do hot have a laborious packing up before we start—only the throwing away of our transgressions. No expensive hotel bills to pay; It is "without money and without price." No long and dusty travel before we get there; it is only one step away. In California, In five minutes, I walked around and saw ten fountains all bubbling up, and they were all different; and in five minutes I can go through this Bible parterre and find you fifty bright, sparkling fountains bubbling up into eternal life—healing and therapeutic. A chemist Will go to one of these summer watering-places and take the water, and analyze it, and tell you that it contains so much of iron, and so much of soda, and so much of lime, and so much of magnesia. 1 come to this Gospel well, this living fountain, and analyze the water; and I find that its Ingredients are peace, rwrrton, forgiveness, hope, comfort, life, heaven. "Ho, every one that thlrsteth, ome ye" to this watering-place. Crowd around this Bethesda. O you sick, you lame, you troubled, you dy- ng—crowd around this Bethesda. Step n it, oh, step In it.

Satan has three or four grades down which he takes- men to destruction. One man he takes up, andi through one .spree pitches him into eternal darkness. That is a rare case. Very seldom, indeed, can you find a man who will be such a fool as that. Satan will take another man to a grade, to a descent at an angle about like the Pennsylvania coal-chute or the Mount Washington rail-track, and shove him off. But that !B very rare. When a man goes down to destruction, Satan brings him to a plane. It is almost a level. The depression is so slight that you can hardly see it. The man does not actually know that he is on the down grade, and it tips only a little toward total darkness—just « little. And the first mile it is claret, and the second mile It is sherry, and the third mile it is punch, and the fourth mile it is ale, and the fifth mile it is whisky, and the sixth mile it is brandy, and then it gets steeper and steeper and steeper, until it is impossible to stop. "Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth its color in the cup, when it jnoveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder." Whether you tarry at home—which will be quite as safe, and perhaps quite as comfortable—or go into the country, arm yourself against temptation. The grace of God is the only safe shelter, whether in town or cpuntry. Tfctere are watering-places accessible to all of us. You cannot open a book of the Bible without finding out some such watering place. Fountains open for sin and u«e}ean»ess. Wells of salvation. Streams from Lebanon.

There Is a doctor In West Philadelphia who has a son one year old, and this baby is probably the strongest human being for its age and weight In the world. Its father will hold a cnne In his two hands, and the baby, grasping it, will draw itself up to'its chin three times. That is but one of its numerous feats of strength. The physician says that his boy's unusual muscular development is due to a daily massage treatment. Every morning he lays the little fellow, naked, on a blanket, and kneads his muscles for thirty minutes. Once a month he weighs the baby and measures its calves, chest, arms, etc. The monthly increa.se of weight and girth are remarkable. The baby has never had shoes or stockings on its feet or a hat on its head, and in the summer it wears only a little sleeveless dress that comes to its knees. It gets a cold bath every morning. "If nothing goes wrong," the physician often declares, "this child will be one of the strongest men the world has ever seen. He will never get bald and he will never lose a tooth. As for his muscles, with massage and a course of exercise that I have laid out, they will be big and supple all over his body. All his flesh will be, when tense, hard as steel, and when relaxed as soft ae the flesh of « young girl." I-OSB of Hair Duo to Mmitnl Shock. In a French medical journal M. Boissier relates the following remarkable, case, which Is an addition to the group of cases in which sudden loss of hafr or change of its color follower! mental shock. The subject was a vigorous peasant, aged 38 years, who was not of a nervous temperament beyond being slightly emotional. His hair was abundant, and a dark chestnut color and not even slightly Interspersed with white filaments. One evening, as he was returning home, preceded by'his mule, on which was mounted his son, aged 8 years, the animal slipped, and Here is the story of the young woman who believes she has a mission In life bevond social gayety and merrymaking of the 400. She is Miss Cora Van Norden, daughter of Warner Vail Norden, president of the National Bank of North America. She is following the footsteps of her elster, Miss Emma Van Norden, long a concert enlisted in salvation's ranks. Four years ago, jitst after Miss Emma Vitn Norden had "come out," there was a furor tn her set. Miss Van Nordon had quietly joined the ranks of the BaU llngton-Boothe. She and her family were faithful attendants at Dr. John Hall's church in Fifth avenue, and her friends were amazed at the turn her devotion hart taken. "I implore you to consider," her sister said. "No," said Miss Emma Van Nordtm.' "I consider it my duty. You can stick to society; I shall join the army." So Mlse Kmma Van Norden sold her ball gowns for charity, but Miss Cora Van Nordon still appeared in society. She went the usual round of the season's entertainments. "I follow my sister?" she laughod, "Oh, dear, no!" They were slaters, so it was only natural that Miss Cora Van Nordon should go down into the slums to see what Miss Emma was doing. "I don't see how you can stand thlis," said the girl of society. But the other only smiled. Presently Miss Cora Van Norden began inquiring further about to itss. rtftKftAii wo. 44,395) " DEAB MRS.

He was only severely bruised, but the father thought he was killed, and in wd.eavpring to save him was terror-stricken. He trembled, and had palpitations and a feeling of cold and tension in the face and head. On the following day the hairs of the head, beard and eyebrows commenced to fall in quantities, so that after eight days he was absolutely bald. At the same time the skin of the face and head become paler. Without delay the' hairs began to grow again in the form of a colorless down. Soon all the affected regions were covered with finer, more silky, and a more thinly sown! her sister's, work. It didn't seem so bad after all. "Well, I hope you are happy, anyway," she said, and this was her first cheerful view of the situation. "Yes, I am happy," replied her •sls- ler. Mr. Van Norden was disquieted. He «aw the awakening Interest of his younger daughter and feared she would follow her sister. "No, indeed," she laughed. "I am too fond of the gay world." The Booth-Tuckers met and wore charmed with Miss Cora Van Nordcn. Her sister talked quietly of the work, nnd all the pleasant features of Salvation army life were laid before her. "Dear me," she said suddenly, one flay, a year ago, "isn't there something I can do to help? I don't want to join the Salvation army. I just want to help." So she was allowed to help. There is a new editor today for the Young Soldier, published in the interest of the junior mem.bers of the army. The chief editor is away, and the new editor Is Mies Cora Van Norden.

Miss Van Norden is editing the Young Soldier for us." But Miss Van Norden still clings to the outer world. Not yet can she convince herself she must give tip all so- i cial gayety. She still wears her stunning tailor-made gowns. , But the truth is out. She has joined ' the army. Her father has given up his city house and engaged rooms at the New Netherland.
