SHARP POINTS. -/Many children become discouraged Kecause their best efforts meet with no fapproval. , I Difficulty add to achievement, as the framming of the powder sends the bul- llet further. There is no fault that does not bring tits brothers and sisters and cousins to jlive with it. 1 Help others when you can, but never ^ give what you cannot afford because it : is fashionable. When a girl admits that she has a corn she says she must quit wearing such loose shoes. A man never believes, that tho girl he is going to marry could ever grow as fat as'her mother. Keep your eye on the man who selects his friends before he forms their personal acquaintance. No matter., how poor a stick he is, a Voman always thinks her hubsand is an undiscovered genius. -The last infirmity of noble minds Is ignorance of difference between talking much and sayinK much. - That Was Most of ,tho Time. Ho Stopped the Car. He was young and neatly dressed, but he retained the biggest half of a last night's jag. Making his way up the Bowery as steadily as he could, he suddenly decided to take a cable car. Unfortunately, he was in the middle of the block, and cable cars stop only, at corners, but the gentleman was too much absorbed in whisky and thought to realize the fact. The first car refused to stop, of course, So the gentleman retired to the sidewalk, and entered the car's number with great care and deliberation in a memorandum book. Then he essayed a second car (about four cars had passed while he had been putting down the number), but the second and equally a third car likewise did not stop. In each case he entered the number of the sinning car In his book. Finally, with an expression that said, "I'll make this car stop," he clutched the hand rail on the rear platform of'a fourth car and pulled back as if stopping a team of horses. The car went on. So did the gentleman with the jag, a sort of human pennant to the car. A passenger on the rear platform rang the bell wildly to stop the car. After the car came to a standstill the pennant climbed aboard and calmly put down in his notebook the number of the conductor, gripman and car, then he dropped asleep triumphantly. The man next to him saw the number of the car, as he had written it down. This was it: "Carnumber 321,147776,811."—New York Sun.

At a'dinner the other day Mrs. McKee told of a letter Mrs. Harrison received while llrst lady of the land. It ran: "Pear Maddanv—I would like a present from Washington City, and so I will locate on you for it. Please send me a dress pattern and (here followed a list of several other things) please pay the express, as -I have made a vow never to pay anything on an express package, as I never know what it is until I have opened it," Mrs. Harrison, according to the relator, was much amused at this missive, and "I'll locate on you for that" became a standing phrase in the family ever •after when some object wa& coveted. Another letter received by Mrs. Harrison ran; "Dear Madam—Please send me some sheet music, as I have a daughter that has some tallents."-Ohlo State Journal, E'V«T: Pojwl»r. Shaded chrysanthemums, yellow and brown, have been used at one or two autumn weddings as bridal bouquets.

You have the zodiacal sign Sagittarius, which Jupiter rules, rising at your birth, and therefore Jupiter is your ruling.planet or signiflcator. Sagittarius usually denotes a person above- medium height; a well proportioned and commanding figure; the complexion clear and healthy; the hair near a chestnut color growing thin and forming a notch above the temples; the forehead is full and broad; the eyes expressive; the laugh is loud, merry and cheerful; you are jovial, happy, generous and charitable; you are kind to animals and fond of a'fine horse; you a're not as conservative as you should be and are liable to get into too large deals; you are a natural leader and have plenty of courage to carry any scheme through that you know Is legitimate; you always have a certain kind of good lue.'c that does not seem to come to others; you may apparently be on the brink of a financial precipice and just ready to tumble over, yet something will turn in your favor and pull you through all right. Paul G., Clilcueo. You have the zodiacal sign .Taurus, which Venus rules, rising at your birth, and therefore Venus is your ruling planet or signiflcator. The sign Taurus usually denotes a person with short, but full, strong and well-set stature; broad forehead; dark, curly hair; dark complexion; broad full chest and shoulders; short thick neck; wide nose; full, pouting lips; you will have a' habit of shaking your huid sideways when talking earnestly. You are very quiet, peaceable and pa,tjent in your disposition, have great love for the beautiful in art and nature; you are very fond of the tine arts, such as music, painting, drawing, sketching, etc. You are fond of good living and generally manage to get it; you are Bubject to attacks of tho blues without any apparent good cause. You seldom lose control of your temper, yet when you do you become furious. You dislike to change your business or location and have great love for home and its pleasant surroundings. Ho Found Out. A good East Wlnthrop, Mftlne, deacou got into a discussion the olher day with a newspaper man relative to the size of a hole & horse could go through. The solution came quicker than he an* ticipated, Going to his stable, he found that his horse, weighing over J.OOO pounds, had fallen through a scuttle luto the cellar, ten feet bejow, without receiving a scratch, although tbe dimensions of the scuttle were fifty-four l»cl}es one way by. i8y 8 the other,—Bs. stimulate liver, -,,-,,-„..bowels, tfergr srfekeu, weaken er gripe- In every tiling &' on * pwtng in to getting &' teeth pulled, self obtain, a ifttje fltethfywen. far (teHttm, beittfc more permatte&t thaft hydrogen, Is a new thetmomCti-ie sub» stance for very Ibw temfeefftttires, The high note of a eukoo has been detemihed by an flngllsh observer to be usually frolfl F to El flat; the low note frow D to B. Specimens of fire damji have been recently collected from many sources, all containing nitrogen, with, apparently, about the same pi-oportiott of argon as Is obtainable from the nitrogen ot the air. The purchase of a BOO-acre lot near London, to be gradually covered by an Immense ethnological museum, Is urged by Professor Flinders Petrie.who finds existing museums far too small to receive the materials explorers are so rapidly unearthing. A new life buoy, Invented by an officer of the Austro-Hungarlan navy consists of a hollow metal ball filled with compressed air and a pair o semi-globular Wings of rubber-covered cloth. On turning a screw the air Inflates the wings, which then exert in water a lifting force of thirty-oigh' pounds. Luclum, a new element discovered by M. P. Barriere in monazlte sand, dissolves in sulphuric, nitric or acetic acid, forming soluble salts, either white or slightly rose tinted. Its atomic weight Is calculated as 104. The discoverer proposes to use the substance for an Incandescent gaslight on the Welsbach principle. The four great tunnels of the world .are cited' as an illustration of the marked diminution of the cost of engineering works during the past quarter of a century. The Hoosac tunnel, the oldest of the four, cost ?500 a foot; the Mount Cenis, the next in date, $475; the St. Gothard? ?366, and the Arlberg, the most recent, only $200. An Irish observer estimates that wasps captured between 300 and 400 flies on two of his cows in about twenty minutes. There was a constant stream of wasps carrying away flies, probably to feed the larvae in their nests, and returning to catch more. A white cow appeared to be a favorite with the wasps, as the flies could be seen at once against her skin. The gas engine, which in Europe has now supplanted the steam engine for moderate power, is being used in France for ships. A new gas boat on the Havre-Rouen-Paris line is 100 feet long, with seven feet draught, and attains a speed of seven knots. The gas is stored in steel tubes under a pressure of ninety-five atmospheres. The engine is a two-cylinder one and is of forty-horse power.
