Striving with the Youngstera. • From the Portland Dally Press: To find a man of sixty engaged in the etudy of a new profession is an unusual thing,' and the Maine Medical BChool of this place thinks It has the only student of this age at present taking on undergraduate course in this country. James Scott of Crow Harbor, Guysboro, N. S., has' entered upon the his ; degree^of - M; -pF "will have passed hJs sixtieth milestone. He is a native of Dumfrieshlre, Scotland, and went to Nova Scotia at the -age of 18. He has been a Baptist minister at Crow Harbor and other places •in Nova Scotia for many years. Within the last four or five years he has been studying and practicing medicine in a •desultory way, especially In cases of accidents, and he finally made up his mind to acquire a thorough medical -education. When Mr. Scott first came to college here few of the college body . that in the neatly attired old school gentleman with the kindly face, whom they met on the campus, was a school-' mate of their own. Later on, though, ibis having become generally known, 1 some of the would-be smart ones made $ midnight visit on Mr. Scott, intent ion smoking him out. They were graciously received. At this Juncture one fft the boys, keener than the rest of his COTapanJona.-walked-acrosa tbe^room-to tJncle Jim's chair, thinking the smoke pretty thick in the immediate locality, and found the sturdy Scot contentedly puffing away at a little 'black "T. D.," aajnchja-nd-a-half longpwtthrthe-blue ribbons of smoke curling above him, and smiling, beamingly. The gang shortly departed, and no further attempts have been made to fumigate the medic's room. Mr. Scott has a wife, three daughters and a eon. at Crow Harbor. Pumped the Poison Out. Oakland (Cal.) special: • Miss Angle jWlllard, a charming young society girl, . saved the life of a young man : and has promised to make him happy until death does them part. Miss Willard and the young man, Harry Havens by • name, had a quarrel and dhe had given - him his conge. Harry left, but returned with determination in his eye and some morphine in his pocket. He jpleaded with Miss Willard to recall her , -words, but the more be urged the firmer she appeared to become. Thinking that the Jig was really up, he dropped on his knees' before the obdurate fair one and swallowed the morphine. Then the girl relented, there •was a frantic call for the patrol wagon and in a few minutes the love-sick young man was on his way to a receiving hospital, where a. prosaic stomach pump relieved him of his load. Miss /Willard accompanied Harry to the hospital, and assured the sufferer of her undying affection. He Is now some.•what sick, but is in the seventh heaven nevertheless. "I know I am a fool," said he, '"but I loved the girl and I wanted to show her that I,was willing to die for her." An Infant's Two 6100 Bill*. the Philadelphia Times: Mrs. Lapp, who lives on Tulpehocken street, one of the prettiest of German town's many -pretty thoroughfares, called her husband's attention the other morning to a bundle' lying by the front door. She supposed it had been left there by koine workman who j had been making Repairs to the street, and as it was un- **f Mty .*fe? wanted .it -removed,- When Mr. Lapp went. to the porch to do his wife's bidding he saw William Ma guire, a lamplighter, who was on his rounds putting out the street lights, and called to him to wait and see what the bundle contain*;!. "Bags," said Maguire, scornfully, as Lapp ( began to remove the wrappings, but the next instant the look of curiosity on bis face had given way to one of surprise, for when Lapp had gotten tb» covering off the bundle Jt brought to tight & baby.

[AN FOR THE OURER DEMAND FOR L!VE STOCK SENT BY MAiL. She Mnrrl*d » Vagrant. Columbia (S. C.) special to Atlanta Constitution: A pretty member of one of theb est families In Orangeburg has married a vagrant Just out <H the alma- house, and gives as a reason for her conduct that the man's mother, a fortune-teller, persuaded her that death would soon claim her If she did not marry the son of the old crone. Eva Easterlln was the name of the unfortunate girl, Jim Courtney being hex husband. The couple went to the-resl- dence of Justice Brlrison ahd asked to married, Courtney representing Miss Easterlln as 'a factory hand from an adjacent cotton mill. They were married and proceeded ''to .the shabby l"i»p<J In M!nMi to K»t Animal* Held Up » Whole Town In France—The Citizen* Fied. But the honeymoon of the Ill-matched pair was of short duration. The parents of the girl, hearing that their daughter had been seen with Courtney, quickly ascertained the truth, and, giving chase, found their daughter and took her home. m When Courtney appeared on the streets he waa met by ugly looks from citizens, so ho left town afoot. It was thought the young woman had lost her mind, and her explanation of the reasons and fears which Influenced her marriage indicates that her reason was impaired. An effort will probably be made to got the legislature to annul the marriage, but there Is no precedent, and it is unlikely that It will' be done. Jotin'n Wart IJotrayod Him.

"Well, he finally told her that he had business in Omahn that evening and would % not be home till late—in fact, very late—and she need not mind sitting up for. him. Th« Wife did not sit up for him, but, iir company with a neighbor lady and her husband, went to the ball. She waa asked to dance by a party attired aa a Mexican, and after the dance the Mexican began to open up a mild flirtation. "Do you reside in Council Bluffs?" he commenced. -"Don't be-a fool, John/'ihe wife replied; "I know you by the wart on your thumb, even .if I did not recognize your voice." An Out-of-Sight Steed. • From the Indianapolis Journal: A. R. Sligar, agent of the Panhandle, at New Castle, disposed of a horse In a Taffle~to~uonauctor j. w. Finfrock ,of~ the same road. The horse was blind and very old. The chances were 50 cents each, and Finfrock held the lucky number, but had never seen the stud. -Upon-learnlng-of-hls-luck-hc-sent-tho.- f olio wing telegram: "Am-offered $30. Is horse all right, and will he do for my wife to drive?" Sligar replied as follows: "Horse Is out-of-sight and any woman can drive him." Finfrock did not read between the lines and refused the offer of $30, thinking fie had found a good family driver. He came for the animal and had to acknowledge that the joke waa on him. ' Senators; Not Gentlemen. From the Indianapolis Journal: Lieut.-Gov^Haggard perpetrated a bull yesterday afternoon that was regarded as one of the best jokes of the session. Senator Sweeney was on the floor. Be referred to the "gentleman from—-" "I want to call the attention of ,the senate to one thing," said the presiding officer, rapping his gavel. "The senators are senators—not gentlemen." There was a moment of amazed silence. '• "The senators will address one another as senators, not as gentlenfen," he added. Then every, man in the senate chamber, began, laughing. Sat Dead In Her Chair tor four Days.

It was oile changing the name of John F. Ratt to John Ward. The Populists in caucus • decided not to bother with any legislation of this kind, but Ratt pleaded so earnestly with them that they promised to relieve him of his obnoxious name. A Diversion of Atlanta From tue Atlanta Constitution: Miss Martha Lang^ton, one of the most •jlisrming of this season's debutantes, Will £f.v& & piUowdex ppJ-ty fit her elegant iiojaa oa Peaybtree street Wedues- $igttt A large eantftigeat: of th soel&ty get will fee ATS, flfl ft rule, are undesirable tenants and in large cities there are men who, as .a means of livelihood, follow t the ancient and honor- able profession of rat-catching, says the New York Jour- nal.. Bull-terriers, black-an-tans and wiry-haired Scotch and Skye dog^are prized in the world fqr their efficiency as exterminators of the rodents. Large sums are spent annually to,the end that the population of the long-tailed vermin be kept within bounds and rarely is the thought entertained that the rat has, like all of God's creatures, Its useful mission in the great economy of- nature. ————---—— =—r-^-— What was tlie surprWe,T.hefefOre,"of the head of a great San Francisco hardware firm recently to find in the mall a letter from the superintendent of the famous Utica mine the following request: "Send me Without delay fifty rats for use In the Utlca mines." The recipient thought at first that there was some mistake in the order, that the word rats meant something else, possibly rattall fijos. He puzzled his brain for an "hour and came no nearer a solution. He called In his partners and -the clerks and the porters and invited them to take a hand in an impromptu missing word contest. The consensus of opinion was that r-a-t-s spelled rats, and with a sigh that breathed a hopo for the best, ho muttered: "Obey orders If you break owners," and intrusted the fulfilling of r^to-the-head—porter T .7Late that night the porter, accompanied ; by two professional rat catchers armed with the dark lantersn and the long tongs of their craft, softly tiptoed into the dark cellar of the hardware warehouse. The porter held a large leather bag. They had not long to wait in the dark silence, for within a few minutes the patriarch of the rodent community, as was his custom, poked his head gingerly through the opening of his sanctum, sent a searchlight in all directions from his black, intelligent eyes, and then with a satisfied squeak returned to the bosom of his family to inform them-all was well. Slowly, stealthily, cautiously they emerged from their seclusion—the patriarch, his wife, children, grandchildren and many times great-grandchildren, and when the cool cellar air reached their lungs, with exclamations, bumping occasionally against an uncle, aunt or cousin who, with profuse apol- The., younger ones, more' venturesome, .enticed by the savory smells,' of bacon and old cheese, which eatables were /liberaily distributed in the ad- and informed their elders of the unexpected discovery. , ', . With hysteric joy and increasing appetites the rats went from every hole and corner, little realizing the deception that was being practiced upon them. Suddenly, when the revel was at Its •height, the doors to the room in which the decoy feast was spread were closed. The rat catchers flashed their lanterns! As is the habit of rats when thus overtaken suddenly by the circles of light, they stood still In their tracks as It PAralyzed^zWith lightning-like motion the rat catchers, with their tongs, seized the hypnotized rats and tossed them, into the bag. In less than five minutes a squealing, struggling mass of fifty full-grown rodents were In the bag. They were taken upstairs and turned Into a tin-lined packing case prepared beforehand. The next day they were shipped to the mine and turned loose to act as scavengers. Rats are needed In the mines to eat up refuse food or other matter that would decompose, and the great Utica mine's previous colony was suffocated at the recent flre. That is why the San Francisco firm received its queer order and promptly filled It. Yet it'was only the other day that a story came from France telling how rats had held up a whole town. They overran the cellars and the alleyways of buildings and scampered nonchalantly through the streets. Some one set a dog on the rodents, and, in the melee, the dog went mad. ^ The result a few hours later was an army of mad rats. The citizens took fright, and many, of them fled the town.

Calkins in the March Woman's Home Companion. "To have and to hold, though the possession may be of infinitesimal importance, separates the man from a homogeneous mass of .breathing life and lifts him at once into individual sovereignty. Though no doubt* selfishness enters largely into the feeling, the keen distinctions- between thine and mine is a necessary one in'soclely and is no doubt fostered by thhv desire of possession. As the creative faculty develops, if there be a creative faculty In man, this delight in ownership grows with it. What designer, seeing the thought grow into lines of exquisite grace and delicate beauty under his hand, does not thrill at the thought that the conception is his— all his? What potter, as the vase turns in the wheel and grows at every turn more perfect 'with shapes and colors Ihlhg, which delights not only with the 'uses of a cup* but with the consummate art and skill therein set forth? Even the gods hold their possessions dear and visit.with dire vengeance their stolen fires. Not always, it is true, do deeds and notes of hand ehow ownership. The breeze that comes laden with rose and honeysuckle, filling the afternoon with fragrance, and the sky that spreads its blue above the blossoming earth, may, in a more perfect sense, belong to him, -who feels its worth than to him who holds the deed of Jand across which the breezes blow and above which the bright-blue canopy is spread. I know a man who owns the rich, wide pasture lands ex-. tending for many a mile beyond, my modest house, who never saw or cared to see its spring-time beauty, and whenever I open my window on a lensr IHF fra^ grant air, I feel a greater sense of ownership of all that meets my gaze than I am sure he cpuld ever feel. The measure of enjoyment, I take it, is the measure of possession. But aside from this there is a something in the ownership of tangible things that adds a subtle pleasure to 'mine and thine.' When, with bag in hand, I stand before my country house after a winter's sojourn among friends and relatives I feel an exultation and pleasure experienced nowhere else. Critically I survey'the lawn, the garden fence and carefully trimmed trees and shrubs, and then 'my eye traverses the house from ridgepole to cornerstone,, searching for possible signs of decay in paint or weatherboards. It is the only *bit of property I own and I confess to a pleasure in its possession far.. outweighing Its intrinsic value. jBiit such as- it is, It is mine—therein A Silent Man. -A very peculiar man has been unearthed by searchers after oddities. He his life he^ has never been known to utter a single 'word to ( any one but his parents. Physicians' have studied 'his case,. but all failed to find any reason for the man's peculiarity, much. less to suggest any method of curing it. Wiseacres say that Ills eccentricity is due to a peculiarity of birth, but beyond the statement there Is nothing to prove this, and the man's appearance conveys the idei that his silence is born of stubbornness. He is nearly six feet tall, broad shouldered, and altogether is a rugged specimen of manhood; (health^,, and with a face showing marked determination. But those most familiar with him declare that- he,, is ;one of the most docile of men, except on the point of conversation. ' •'",-• "_ A Motor Bun by Moonlight. . An account is given'in Nature of a. motor, intended for delicato experiments in heat measurement, invented by Mr. A. R, Bennett. It is so sen's!-' tive that It begins, to revolve the moment it is exposed to _daylight, even when the sun is hidden;, and In 'clear weather it will work all night, being affected even by the radiant heat of moonlight. The motive power is due to convection currents set up inside, ta* glass shade with which the instrument is covered., While the glass 'is not warmed by the radiant heat of daylight or, moonlight passing through it, the metal surfaces of the motor are, and the minute differences of temperature thus produced suffice to start convection currents. : Indiana Farmer IB Scared.
