"You are fortuirate. 1 have plenty * and it's all bad." Sit Charles Sargent, chief justice af Bombay* is in London tor a brief h6li* clay, after an absence of thirty years in India. Some one of large experience says there are no less .thftii 837 different terms in the English language which ispress the state of being in love. >'You look," Said att Irishman trt ft pate, haggard smokefj "as if you had got out of your grave to light your 4igar and couldn't find youf Way tlack again." Here are the names and ages of f our notable New York men'. RqsWell Pi Blower, 59 years; David B. Hill, 51; Edward Murphy, 66, and Grover Cr-eveiana, 57. One of the wealthiest and most prosperous tradesmen of London can neither read nof write.

It was in 1889, when he had just, left the palace of the JSlysee to attend the fete commemorating the beginning of the revolution. By some strauge chance the asssassin fired a blank cartridge at him, instead of a good one. HOME DEPAflTMEOT. It'Caused Profanity.

Everybody knows this is a good place to be, but everybody does not take measures to be there. An efficient preventive places us on the safe side of-incipient disease, and there is no one'inoretfeliable than Hostet•ter's Stomach Bitters in cases where the kidneys are inactive, which is but the pro- "liminary to, various destructive maladies, which disregarded have/ a- fatal termination. Bfight's disease, diabetes, dropsy, ce'denm, are but the outgrowths of neglected inaction of the kidneys and bladder. They should be checked at the outset with the Bitters, which will prevent their progress by arousing; the renal organs -to activity, and thus place those -who resort to this [saving medicine on the safe side. This preservative of safety also conquers constipation, liver complaint, malarial fever, nervousness and dyspepsia. Whenever you find a man celling gcods with a short yard stick, you find one who is convinced in his own mind that the bible is not true. Some men set rat traps to catch .ele- phauts, while others dig pitfalls for mice. KNOWLEDGE Brings comfort and improvement and . tends to personal enjoyment when rightly wjea.

Under the same roof which shelters the family, the cattle and other denizens of the barnyard are also housed, a continuous roof of thatch usually extending over both house and yard, says a writer in Demorest's. The relations between the stockyard and house are so intimate that at times, when the weather is particularly severe or a suckling calf may be ailing, it is brought into the house to share the only apartment with the family. The rear part of the house is partially occupied by a large stove, in which a fire burns continuously for eight months of the year. The stove,is arranged somewhat like a baker's oven. The fire is lit in the morning, and, after two or three hours, when the wood is' reduced to coals, the flue plate, or damper, is shut; the brick walls being very thick, the oven remains warm until the next day, when the fire is lit again. This stove serves every purpose of the household, even supplying . comfortable sleeping quarters on top for the old people, who can not stand the cold so well as the younger folks. The rest of the family pack themselves away at bed time in a gallery which runs across the rear of the apartment, above the stove, the children occupying one end, the seniors the other. In some sections an innovation has been made by inserting board partitions in the balcony, thus giving more privacy to the sleeping quarters of the different members of the family. On ; Saturday all the members of the family crawl into the oven in turn and have a good wash, using a little home made wooden tub and a bundle of birch luigs. An abundant supply of the latter is gathered in the spring while the leaves of the birch are green and fragrant. The furniture of the house is usually very meager, consisting of home-made benches and tables and a variety of articles which have found their way there from the homes of theu* wealthy neighbors. ' RUGS,—Those who possess a superfluity of rugs can make a charming effect by hanging them against the wall in the corner of a room, one at the head and two or three on the sides. Another rug is suspended lengthwise to form a top, A narrow'divan seat with four or five large cushions is arranged at one end, and the rest of the space is filled with a small eastern octagon table (on which are laid cigars and cigarettes,, waters and a silver taper) and » x couple of oddly-shaped chairs.

Thus liquids c&n be made closely resembling milk and which act like inilk. Fo* a time, ftnd while greatly moved, the emulsion is preserved. If left at rest, gravity acts to bring the fats into a mass at the top like cream. And by churning', the fats can be gathered into a kind of butter. In these and other ways, Such artificial milks or emulsions act so very like true milk that, reasoning by analogy, there is a strong afgtt- meat that cow's milk is simply an emulsion. If this is true, there is one important clue obtained to churning aright. If there are no sacs to rupture 01* break, there is no need of the violent beating Which Was given milk and cream, In former days to compel the butter to''come." Milk being a simple emulsion, and acting like other emulsions made by experimenters, all it needs is gentle agitation, under favorable conditions, to cause the fats to collect and form butter. l,e»vos for reed, THE recent experiments in Germany showing a high nutritive value In leaves of trees is being further emphasized by investigations by the French department of agriculture which is seeking to transform twigs and leaves into food for stock. . There . is nothing new, however, in all of this except the method of approach, as the Romans 3,000 years ago fed their work oxen on leaves and twigs. The question is one of economy. Shall we find a crap of leaves as economical as a crop of grass? There is but one answer to the question, where grass can be obtained The experiments mentioned have been undertaken in Europe' because it was a question largely of killing the cattle or feeding them on leaves and twigs, on account of the widespread failure of the grass crop. A CARGO OF ONIONS — People who had occasion to go down to the Delaware river front lasc evening in the neighborhood of Dock street, encountered, as they approached the wharf, the pungent odor of onions to a marked degree. It was as though a ten-acre lot with onions laid only an inch apart was making itself heard from. Investigation showed that the smell came from the schooner Eva May, which has on board a whole cargo of onions — about 300 tons of them— which she brought from Bermuda. The captain never carried that kind of freight before, and said it, was rather hard on his olfactory nerves just at first. However, he and his crew are used to the odor, and don't mind it. One advantage they have, which is that no one on board suffers from insomnia The officers and sailors sleep like tops when off duty, and have to be kept moving to make them stay awake when on watch. This is due to the soporific effect of the onion smell, and any one who can't sleep and would like to, can gratify his desire by taking a stroll down to Dock street wharf —Philadelphia Record. LEVELING OLD BATTLEMENTS. — With very few exceptions the old cities of Belgium and Holland have leveled the walls which have played such grand parts in the national histories, and<they are converted into promenades afte" the manner of Chester and York. The walls of Antwerp and Malines have been replaced by boulevards. The old bastions of Amsterdam still remain, but the citizens of Arnheim and Utrecht and Hoorn and Zwolle and Haarlem and Leyden disport themselves on fine evenings upon the line of fortifications famous in the most stirring pages of what is perhaps the most stirring of European histories. water, over two teaoupfuJn «p| eho,ppe4 r$u» drairjoff the water aft«j?,foiw QF minutes P nd ™J* with tfesrhubavh a teawpful of swgaiv th;§ ygifc >ejE 'an. e'»&ee of hw.ttey a»d • a taW», of flour, moigteaiflg • the' h three ,t§hie6pog»ful§' Qt f fe wifh tsbe lowev emit jnajje,« mwtarHP Q( thf tjfff ™^SlLZTi "' vm^^W**T» <• j- TfCJ^ ™« t T'^ n* K -WjW 1 fur-f $® p|^^;p|..p|ujn, i rt; t» typ $J$$I ^g^^SS^i^£jl£.JJ!L!.'j ''' ' ! ; 'ifdv^'jm^Mi ffijfii$jfr$pfr .^^iFfl^^toip^wwiw tm 'S^&''Wffi*^$ 9 ?$ r^SS $$$!& ^a^riS**?(EwPj^ •"5??WmF^* ' y^W^-*f|TRy, Ml«Y»<VfM»:^ffiM*ftl;ttf ^fc^.^M'MllAl*el??fe^li*'' TJwS^m.- ,Ku> GLOVES.— The cheapest kid gloves in trade are made from the skins of kids and lambs that are born dead, The reason they wear out BO quickly and tear so easily is because they have no elasticity.

FROM MANY SOURCES, Ton May Go to Europe It Iron Ara jfot Afraid to Work. Most people connect with the thought of going to Europe an idea of considerable expense, but there a,t>e manv people who go freo, and firms that advertise for people who are willing to go free. This is such an advertisement: "WANTED—Men on cattle steamers to England; work for passage. Apply employment office, (54 a— st. Not the quickest nor the laziest nor the most comfortable way to get to Liverpool, but a way that answers the purpose of many people, and when they are there—in Liverpool or Glasgow—they aro just as much there as if they had gone first cabin and paid so many dollars a day for seasickness, says the New York Advertiser. A reporter had hardly entered the door of the employment agency on G; street when two men came in together carrying a cheap, rope- strapped tin trunk. . "Is that all?" asked the man at the desk, addressing one of the newcoin- era "That's all." "Be here at half-past nine to-morrow morning. Leave the trunk there." The prospective passenger had been there before and had made his arrangements. A minute later two fairly dressed young men came in. The genius at the desk "sized them up" with a glance. It was just such a look as the pawnbroker {jives an unfamiliar face. The verdict was unfavorable. The men didn't look enough like work and appeared rather too prosperous. The fellow at the desk answered a few questions with "yes" and "no" and then asked abruptly: "Where are you going?" "Well," said one of them, "we didn't much care. We thought we'd go to Pads." "We don't run any boats, to Paris," was the serious, qxiick-spoken rejoinder, with an accent and expression that plainly meant: "That's all there is to be said," • •But—" "We don't run any boats to Paris. Do you belong on.the other side?" "No.; we belong here." "I thought so. This is intended for people who have come here from Europe and want to get back." The next man was ragged and had his coat collar turned up. 'Ho. wasn't asked whether he belonged ,on the other side; that didn't matter in his case. He wasn't going on a lark, he knew. The routine of questions and answers was gone over like clockwork. It was as simple a matter as hiving a man to take a trunk to South Brooklyn. The shipment of cattle to Europe has grown from 500 head a week ten years ago to 8,000 a week now from this port, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore being the three Atlantic ports from which cattle are shipped- Missed Tts Proper l r ate, Streletzki, the pianist, tolls the following story of Liszt: I remember once a Miss M ---- playing 1 a sonata, by Sterndale Bennett, a work of a very prosy type, and certainly lacking in Anything like spontaneity OP poetry, Liszt was evidently not familiar with it, so, aftev playing some six or seven pages, ho gently tapped Miss M - on the arm and eaid: ' •Mademoiselle, would you kindly name the piece you are per- formingP" • "Certajaly, sir," she replied; "it is the.apnata »Tbe Maid of Orleans,' by William ytoi'n<jale Ben pett," "H'm," said Liszt; "it's a. pity the original mftnwwipt didn't meet the same fate as the -**Al'f QBftttt, The only fish that never sleep ar» salmon, pike aud goldfish.
