Ho Moved On. "What do you want?" asked tho housewife, "Suthin 1 to eat." "I haven't anything in tho house except somo bread und corn beef. Do you want somo of that?" "No," ho said Sadly. "I guess I'll movo on. It; 'ud bo a pity ter waste such a lino appo- tito on aocl; poor victuals."—Washington A MIT,K .Tiro.— Not fcho ingenuity of j tho yankce.but that of an Eng-lishman, I 1ms invented tho long-looked-for milk i jug, which can bo \tsed by every • family, nnd discloses tho purity of tho milk it contains as unerring asn oheru- i ist's analysis. It is aptly named .tho I "Telltale" and is made of strong glass, marked oft' in quarter, half, three-quarters and one pint measures. To test the quality, exactly u pint or a half pint must be allowed to stand until the cream rises; the thickness of the cream shows the quality of the milk by means of marks on tho glass at stated intervals; respectively, "average," "good" and "very good'." With milk of a very poor quality the cream will not reach even the "average" mark. • THE PLANT A BI.OSSM.—The Malayan pennisula is the home of an extraordinary botanical curiosity in the shape of a flower which is simply a blossom without leaves, vine or stem and which grows as a parasite on decaying wood, etc. It is known to the natives by a name equivalent to a "wonder-wonder." This extraordinary flower-like growth is sometimes as much as three feet in diameter, with a globular central cup having a capacity of about five to seven quarts. Tliis cup distills a fetid liquid .with an odor, similar to that of decaying meat, ttotanists believe that the odor is calculated to attract flies and secure proper fertilization. WOOD.— A Hungarian inventor claims to have made a discovery which will revolutionize the textile industry. He asserts that he is able to spin ordinary wood pulp or cellulose into yarn, from which all sorts of textile tissues can be made in the ordinary way, equaling in appearance, durability and fastness of • color the best cotton goods. The method is not only applicable to cellulose, but also to every sort of short fibrous material — for instance, rags, scraps of cotton and linen goods. The fiber, whether paper pulp or textile refuse, can be dyed before being spun into yarn, so that the dyeing of the woven material is not iiecessarv. Otnt "POSTAL SYSTEM.— Less" than fifty years ago there was really no postal system in this country. Previous to .18-17 the mails were carried by private firms and rates varied according to distance. •Carriers often traveled on foot or horseback and the progress was slow. In 1840 somo of the post- offices issued stamps of their own, called "provisional issues." The adhesive stamp was first used in this country in 1847, and prepayment was made compulsory in 1850. In 1803 tbe stamp containing the head of Andrew Jackson was issued, and from then until 188") the style adopted contained the profiles of Presidents of the United State.

It gives muscular development, strong heart action and free lung play. Th muscle comes where it ought' to be, the shoulders go back, the loins hold the trunk well balanced, and the feet tak their proper positions. It was running which made tho Greek figure. Thi more active tribes of American Indian! have been runners from time immemo rial, and from the chest to the heel they are much more beautifully buil than the average of white men. Run ning people have usually the firm bu elastic texture which is the beautv of flesh.
