Tho Location ot Memory. lie memory remains intact and in srfeot working order in cases whore the loft side of the brain is badly diseased, or even if portions of it have , been removed. From this the natural inference is that tha right sido of tho ,! brain is tho Boat of that most remarkable faculty. Lieutenant Brady, who lost a portion of tha right sido of tho train from a gunshot wound while in Assam, where two-thirds of the offi- . cials are negroes, suffered a remarka- ' ble lapse of memory. Aftor he had i fully recovered ho knew and could .call by name all his white associates, but the negroes, whom he formerly knew as well as the whites, were per- feet strangers to him. * Breakers Ahead I Prudence, foresight, that might have saved many a good ship that has gone to pieces among tho breakers, is a quality "conspicuous by Its absence" and among none more notably than persons troubled with inactivity of tho kidneys and bladder... When these organs fall oft Jn duty grievous trouble is to bo apprehended. Bright's disease, diabetes, catarrh, and stone in tho bladder, are among tho diseases which a disregard of early , symptoms confirm and render fatal. That signally effectual" diuretic, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, will—and let no one so troubled forgot this—remedy tho symptoms of approaching renal disease and chock its further progress. Equally efficacious is tho B itters for constipation,'liver complaint, malarial and rheumatic trouble and debility.

BfTWBAffr' S1»c \Van SwliiKliiB' ou n AA'as greou, the trees Avore :'n full loaf and tho birds sang through the Avood The princess stepped out upon the, branch of a tree aud lightly lifted up her arms, and as she dirt she grew taller, until she must have been at least tAvelyo inches high as she balanced herself on the brunch of the oak tree. This Avas a little Avay the princess had. Now, just about this time a little boy in the nearest village Avas sent by his mother ou an errand. Ho did not like to go—after the manner of littles boys. The Avay Avas long. Besides leading through the Avood Avhere tho Princess lived It began over a mill-stream and dOAvn a long lane. Tho little boy, Avhose name Avas Max, shook himself and said: "I'm afraid there are wolves in tho Avood!" "You have been there often before," said his mother, "aud the Avolves never hurt good boys." "Tho sun is very hot and I have a lame leg," insisted Max. "You can go sloAvly," replied his mother, "and here is a little cake to eat on the road." Then Max felt ashamed, but he still said sulkily: "The sun is hot, and my foot does hurt mo and there are AVOIVCS in the forest." His mother Avas busy, so she only shook her head at him. Then Max, feeling both ashamed and angry, Avas obliged to start. He trudged along. The foot did hurt him a little, so he Avent sloAvly. But he knew that he Avoxild get there in an hour or two, and "he felt tile little cake his mother had slipped into his pocket and said to himself: "Aftor all, mother gives mo so much." Then his foot felt better, and presently he forgot it and Avent along sing- Ing, and so he crossed over the millstream. Then the sun grew hot, and it greAV very uncomfortable in the long lane which he had next to pass. It is horrible to go of errands, thought Max. He became so Avann that he took off his jacket Avith a jerk, meaning to carry it over his arm. As lie did so he felt in his pocket the little .cake his mother had put there. And he grew again ashamed of his anger. "After all," he said to himself, "mother-always tries to make tilings easier, and' she always thinks of something nice to do for me." And just then tho sun began to go behind it cloud and the lane seemed to $6t Ko one can fcfcfe Sndi tiny its that ufitll they learn to nnve two sets of eyes, nnd this little boy had not his second set yet But because th« princess could make herself so tiny* as well as invisible, If she AVishod, and transport herself to any place if she" wished to go, she could creep into the tiniest places and do the strangest things you evor heard of. The she saw tho Httlo boy stop short. She knew Avhat Avns the reason. So she suddenly grew very small, and she floated lightly along on a little breeze that happened to be near, and as she passed the little boy she whispered softly In his ear: "Feel in your pocket!" And the little boy felt, and whnt he felt there was nothing but the little cake his mother had put there that morning. But lie thought to himself: "My mother always gives me all that she can. That is because she loves me. And if she docs she Avoxild not send me to any place that was truly dangerous. I am foolish to be cowardly* If I got through the rest of the way, I certainly can get through this!" And as he looked about a fairy-like perfume floated up from the flowers at his feet. The branches of tho trees overhead swayed back and forth, and gleams of the sun shone through and brightened the air ni'ouud him. And he thought ho almost felt a hand like Ills mother's smooth back his hair. "Why, It Is beautiful In tho \voodst" cried the little boy. He ran lightly along. The little nut-shell fairy floated nling beside him, although ho never saAV her. And as he \veut there wore sharp, gleaming eyes that Avatohad him through the thicket, but the eyes wore so sharp that they saAV, also, the fairy that kept beside Max, aud at sight of hcv they shrank back in fright. No matter IIOAV strange tho eyes that Avatch .or cruel tho mouth beneath them, they iii'e poAverless before any one Avhom this wonderful fniry princess has taken under her protection. So Max kueAV nothing. He ate his cake as he ran. He did his errand. A kind neighbor took him all tho Avay home in his Avagon. Only as he Avont to bed that night Max whispered to his mother: "I'm glad you gave mo that ilttlc cake to-day, mother!" But his mother AVUS so busy that she forgot to ask him Avhy. Sturtllue. It was a novel accident, with a novel seiiuel, tluit befell Admiral Homo dur- ins the war with China in 1842. He had dined on one of the ships of tho fleet, and when ho came to return' to his own ship the tide Avas running so strongly that his men could not pull asaiust it and he was compelled to take refuge for the night in the frigate Dido, When getting out of his cockle-sholl boat he made a false stop, and as. he was largo and heavy tho boat tilted over, and in an instant he and his crew were struggling in the water. Tho admiral luckily soizod a rope which hung over tho sido of tho ship. Five of the men seized hold of his logs, and there they hung, shouting lustily for help till they wore drawn in by the Dido's crow. Tho admiral, pretty well exhausted, was put to bed, with a hot drink, and soon dropped aslocp, after giving directions to bo called curly. At the stated hour the officer of the watch roused tho admiral, who, still dreaming of drowning and other horrors, drowsily asked, "Who's there?" "Denth," was tho reply. It Avns startling, and the . admiral looked out of his eot expecting to soo a skeleton or some other ghastly object; but now fully snvako, and perceiving only a very 'gentlemanlike young man standing close to Win, lie observed: "It is very singular. I thought I Avas told that death Avas before inc.'" "And so he is," answered the young officer. "My name is Death, and I have come to tell you that the tide has changed." A IreRentl ot tlie Pansy. All pansy lovers are fond of comparing the flower to human faces which seem to look at them Avith lovo and sympathy. Another pretty fancy In regard to this flower is current among French nnd'German children. The Household Magazine gives fills version of it: The flower has five petals and live sepals. In most pansios, especially of tho earlier and less highly developed varieties, tAVO of the petals are plain in color, and three are gay. The tAVO plain petals have a single sepal, two of the gay petals ha\'e a sepal each, and the third, which.is the largest of nil, has hvo sepals. The fable is that the pansy represents a family, consisting of husband .nd Avife and four daughters, two of the latter being step-children, Avith only one chair; the tAVO small, gay petals aro the. daughters, Avitii n chair each, and the large'gay petal is tho wife, with tAvo chairs. To find tho father one must strip away the petals until'tho stamens and pistils are bare. They haye n fanciful resemblance to nn old man Avitii a flannel wrap about his neck, his shoulders upraised and his foot in a batli-tub. The story is probably of French origin, because the French call the pansy the step-mother. Afrb The French ca*airy numbers iSO.OOti horses. Dresden taxes cats and they aFe disappearing 1 rnpidly.

A Montana judge, before whom a chronic horse thief Avas convicted, could have given tho latter sixty years under tho statutes, but lot him off with a sentence for life. Tho most honorable death in China is by strangulation, and high officials condemned to death receive their sentence from tho einporor in tho shape of a silken cord with which they hang themselves.
