Hie Location ot Memory, ••The memory remains intact and in • 'perfect working ordet* in cases where "i, the 16ft side of tho brain is badly dis- * ^ased., or even if portions of it have '" been removed. From this the natural inference is that the right side of the brain is the seat of that most remark- Able faculty. Lieutenant Brady, who lost a portion of the right side of the brain from a gunshot wound while in Assam, where two-thirds of the offi> •cials Are negroes, suffered a remarkable lapse of memory. After he had fully recovered he knew and could call by name all his white associates, but the negroes, whom he formerly knew as well as the whites, wore perfect strangers to him.

Folly lived in a strong' cage, and was expected to stay there, excepting when she was invited to come out; She was out Bow, certainly, atid the cage door stood open. She was a handsome bird and a great talker, but vixenish. Hose was a very good fellow, and a Useful member of the family. Tabby was a good cat, as cats go. She was fond of milk, and sometimes caught a moilse. She would fawn around you if you had a cookey in your hand, or fly at 'you with ten sharp claws if you chanced to tread on her tail. But she was well enough. Bose and Tabby lived peacefully together, Not a "cat and dog's life" at all, but a friendly sort of life. .Polly was not a favoi'ite with thorn. They two did well enough together, but "throe is a crowd." Tabby often found it pleasant to mouso round Polly's cag'e aad pick up crumbs of cake or cracker, but Bose kept away. Polly had tricks that were not agreeable. She would call, "Kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty!" and when Tabby roused herself from a quiet knap and ran to see why she was wanted, Polly would salute her with a fierce "Scat!" followed by a mocking laugh. And, she whistled for Bose so that he was completely puzzled, and could not tell which was his mistress and which was Polly. Bose and Tabby had been having 1 a little discussion. There stood ou the table a sugar bowl and some empty .cups and saucers. Tabby had proposed to climb up on tho table, and had made bold to put her forepaws ou the edge of it, but Boso had said, "No, Tabby, not while I am here." Tabby knew there was no use ia persisting if Boso once set his foot down against it, so she dropped the subject. There was nothing on the table but sugar, and she never ate that. She had thought, however, that there might be some small drops of milk in the cups. Now Bose was fond of sugar, but he was much too honorable to touch it without leave. While Bose and Tabby were having their little talk, Polly had flown to the table and had helped herself to a lump of sugar, and was now sitting on the drop-light, talking comfortably to herself. "Polly, Polly! Pretty Polly! Good Polly!" "Oh. the wretch!" said Tabby, in her cat language. "I have a mind to pull out her tail feathers." Bose said nothing. Perhaps he ought to have objected; but his prejudices were so strong against Polly 'that- he felt almost willing to see her punished a little. When Polly had eaten the sugar she began to, call in an enticing voice, "Kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty!" and although Tabby had been deceived before, she allowed herself to .think that Polly might pos&ibly have something for her this' time; so she promptly obeyed the summons, and was rewarded with the usual "scat!" "Pit-pit-meow!" said Tabby, as she jumped upon a chair and clawed at Polly's feathers. Polly took no notice of her, but flew to the table for another lump of sugar. Tabby saw her opportunity, sprang after Polly, and seized her by the neck. Bose rushed forward to separate them, and, being a clumsy fellow, in gome way pulled table-cloth, cups, sugar, parrot and cat to the floor. Polly feebly muttered, "Polly wants a — " and then closed her eyes and hung her head. "Oh, Tabby, what have you done?" said Bose., plainly as a dog could say it. "I only meant to pull out her tail feathers," said Tabby, "but now she is dead, I might as well eat her." •'No)" said Bose, «>J forbid it. Bowwow!" Tabby again submitted, and, having carried poor 'Polly under the table, seated herself on the sofa cushion, heartlessly washed- her paws and composed herself to sleep, Base 'pn the,he.apthi'Hff, mov»'nf»lly the spene ot disaster., and to himself; "Qhi Tabby, wh'at"h&Yf> we dope?

" Hft, ha, h£, ifel* Sef6am6d Polly, ing with a nervous laugh. While Bose and Tabby stood rapt in astbnishtneht tlii door opened and in came the mistress. She gaaed at the disordered table a moment. "Oh, Bose!" she said, "did ybti dd this mischief?" Bose hung His head and withdrew into a corner, but tabby came boldly forward with a loud "pun-meow!" attd rubbed affectionately against her mistress' dress. "Why, Polly," said the mistress, as she spied the parrot on her perch, "How did you get out?" and she put her into the cage and fastened the door. "NeVer miiid! Never mind! Ha, ha ha!" said tolly. Then the mistress rang the bell and as the maid came in to put thing's to tights Bose slipped out. Tabby reestablished herself on the sofa cushion and folly was presented with a large lump of sugar, which she received graciously, But if the talkative bird could have related to her mistress the whole story, wouldn't that lady have been surprised? Hints to Young Authors. "Tha first thing 1 you need is to have something to say. If you have nothing that you are burning to tell, keep silent. Next, you must remember that the way of saying a thing is very important, and so must cultivate style. To gain a good style you must read the best authors. You will learn how to write only by reading, and not by writing out your own thoughts while you are young; but by taking in great thoughts, the thoughts and Words of the great of all ages." "Read Dante, Milton, Shakespeare; have always on hand a task, in the way of a history or an essay, or some volume which you cannot read hastily. Gradually, by reading the best literature you will gain a good vocabulary, and learn to express yourself as the masters do." When you write do not choose a high-flown siibject which does not in- terest.andis in no way real to you,but describe something with which you are familiar. Take your father's house, or the street your school stands on, or your own room, and try to make a pen picture of either of these. Write in plain simple language, as you would speak. Always write as if you were talking to somebody, a child, or a dear mother, or your cousin Bob who is in Madras, or your Aunt Emmeline, in the frontier fort, a week's journey from home. Never thinli especially of publishing your work, or of making money by it. Money is paid only to those who understand their art, not to beginners. You will spoil your work and ruin all ybur chances if you let the thought of money enter into your first writing.—Harper's Young People. Japanese Styles. Japanese folks have six or eight pockets cunningly inserted in the cuffs of their wide sleeves. These pockets are always filled with a curious miscellany peculiar to the droll little people. As common as twine ia young America's pocket is the pray or amulet written on a delicate sheet of .rice paper and composed by the bonzes. In accordance with the abiding and funny faith-of the Japanese women, 'these prayei's are swallowed, paper and all, like a pill, in all cases of mental ami physical distress. Another essential never missing is a number of small squares of silky paper, which is put to the most unexpected purpose—-to hold the stem of a lottts or lily, to dry a teacup, wipo away a tear or blow the absurd little nose of the doll-like little, woman. The very smratest people of Japan use Jhis style of handkerchief for practical purposes. After using, a ball is made of the paper and it is thrown into tho street with disgust. The Baby's Toa-Set. A single concern in New York has been- turning out for almost fifty years pewter toys—the kind that several generations of children now recall.- These things are made by the gross and sold the country over.

Deafness Can Not Be Cared by local applications, as they can not reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure Deafness and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustaehiaii Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it Is entirely closed Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be token out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that can not be cured by Half's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, "free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.

A NEW SCHEME OF fHE W. L. DOUGLAS SHOE GO. Will Furnish Tlx-lr Help With Medical Attendance. William fj. Douglas, the president of the world-famed VV. 1>. Douglas Shoe Co., hus always had a groat personal interest in the army of men and women who inhabit the great factory at Montcllo during thu workiiif,' hours of Ihe day, and who muUu the yicaily advertised t<i shoo. He is a great believer In the idea that manufacturers should have this pcr.sonal interest in the condition of their employes, arid fools that if the idea is carried out to tho extent that is possible, that it will result ultimately in the breaking down of the barriers which have been built up between employers and those whom they employ, as it would convince the work* ingmen that their employers were not their enemies, as some of them seem to think now, but their friends, with a desire to do all for them that was in their power. Having strong feelings upon this point, it Is only natural that Mr. Douglas should give tho matter some study and acquaint himself with the result of the trials of similar plans In other placos. He is satisfied that the scheme he has originated is a good one, and he has now put it to practical test. He has hahded to every person In his cmplov —and they form n small army—a curd which will enable them to secure free medical attendance. This is a practical illustration of Mr. Douglas' idea, and will surely bo appreciated by the hundreds who receive the cards. The plan is a good one. Speaking of the W. L. Douglas Shoe Co.'ilt may bo said that their factory is tho only one in Brockton where the principle of arbitration is recognized und has full sway. Mr. Douglas Is a tlrm believer in the principle and has been since the establishment of tho stale board of arbitration. He claims that labor troubles would not be as frequent as they are if manufacturers and help would recognize this great principle and adopt it. Not Gambling.

People who get the greatest degree of comfort and real enjoyment out of life, are those who make the most put __ of their opportunities. Quick perception and good judgment, lead such promptly to adopt and make use of those refined ami improved products of modern inventive • genius which best serve the needs of their physical being. Accordingly,: the most intelligent and progressive people are found to employ the most refined and ((._ perfect laxative to reg- rulate and tone up the •^stomach, liver,, and bowels, when in need of such an agent—hence the great popularity of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. These are made from the purest, most "refined and concentrated vegetable extracts, and from foity-two to forty-four are contained in each vial, which is .sold at the same price as the cheaper made and more oidinary pills found in the market. In curative virtues, there is no comparison to be made between them and the .ordinary pills', .as any one may easily learn by sending for a free sample, (four to seven doses') of the Pellets, which will be sent on receipt of name and address on a postal card. QNCE USED THEY ARB ALWAYS IN-'FAVOg; The Pellets cure biliousness, sick and bilious headache, dizziness, costivcness, or ' constipation, sour stomach, loss of appetite, conted tongue, indigestion, or dyspepsia, windy belchings, " heait-burn," pain and distress after eating, and kindred derangements of the liver, stomach atid bowels. Put up in glass vials, therefore always' fresh and reliable. One little "Pellet" is a laxative, two are mildly cathartic. As a "dinner pill," to promote digestion, take one each day after dinner. To relieve distress from over-eating, they are UH- equaled. They are tiny, sugar-coated granules; any child will readily take them. Accent no substitute that may be recommended to be "just as good."
