Beware the Street Car Strap.
New York Sun: A Pittsburger went
to his physician a few days ago com
plainin of a dull ache in his left arm.
He had never had rheumatism, but
thought his pain must come from that
malady. After describing' it, the doc
tor said: "You ride to and from your
office in the cable car, don't you?''
"Yes." "You seldom get a seat?''
"True enough," "you have formed the
habit of holding to the strap with your
left hand?" "Since you mention It, I
know that it is so. though I had not
thought of it." "That is the cause of
the pain you feel. For an hour a day,
more or less, your arm is held in an
unnatural upraised position, and it, has
begun to tell upon you. You can re
lieve the ache with this ointment which
I shall give you. but a cure can only
be effected by ceasing to support your
self by hanging to a strap.

devoted to the subject of feeding wheat
to farm animals. Reports from many
farmers from different sections of the

Wheat is pronounced by them almost
without exception to be a ver3" superior
feed, from 10 to 50 per cent better than
corn and better in mixture than when

we should enjoy life more if we did:

Of all the splendors and luxuries of
their old home nothing remained to the
orphans but the beautiful china vase of
pot-pourri of which Arthur and Mabel
haxl gathered the roses that summer
when they were betrothed.
That was almost three years ago,
now, and to-night, as the wild winter
winds shrieked through the leafless
trees, and the blinding snow whirled
along the lonely streets, little Plossom
stirred the rose leaves in the old china
jar. and with the summery gust of
spicy perfume, old memories rose to
Hood tide in Mabel's tortured heart.
Where was Arthur now when his beau
tiful young love was so lonely and
friendless in the cruel world, her slight
form too thinly clad for the wintry
cold, her cheek too wan from lack of
food? Vas he dead, or false?
Alas, they had quarreled bitterly,
the headstrong young lovers!
lut as Mabel wept so heart-brokenly
now. she thought less of their bitter
quarrel and more of their love and
happinos that golden summer when
they had gathered the roses to fill the
china jar, and kissed each other so
often beneath the bending foliage.
Later on, in winter weather, they had
quarreled, because Mabel was dis
pleased at Arthur's flirting with a cold
coquette. So the sweet idyl of love came
to a sudden end, and Arthur devotei
himself to the girls that Mabel despised
the most. She did not seem to care,
although she favored none of her other
suitors, but smiled on all alike. Her
mamma did not allow her to take ref
uge, like Arthur, in reckless flirting.
"A young girl should be as pure as a
white rosebud. The virgin dew of in
nocence should not be brushed from
her heart by idle flirtations. Let her
keep her love looks and her heart
smiles for her husband," said the wise
And therein lay the gist of the lover's
Arthur had flirted and Mabel had
taken him to task.
He was so handsome and so rich that
women kept angling for him even after
his engagement was announced, and
his easy masculine vanity soon drew
him into a coquette's toils. He looked
love into her wooing eyes and kissed
her hand because she tempted him.
He knew lie was in the wrong, but he
waxed angry at Mabel's naive lectures.
".Manima says a male ilirt is even
more despicable than a female one.and
that a truly noble man will not stoop
to pain a woman's heart merely to
gratify his sillj vanity. And an en
gaged man is almost the same as a
married man. Mamma says he has no

'See here, Mabel, you're beginning

"You can never marry me unless you
change your fickle ways!'' flashed Ma
bel, indignantly, and Arthur, not to be
"Very well. Miss Miller. 1 can soon
find another sweetheart as pretty as
you are. and perhaps not so jealous!"
Mabel's blue eyes flashed with anger,
and tossing her beautiful golden head,
she threw his diamond ring disdain
fully at his feet. Arthur picked it up
with a reproachful glance from his
large, dark eyes, bowed scornfully,
and went away. After that they never
spoke as they passed by.
Put. in spite of their outward pride
and alienation, they had loved too
tenderly and truly to change at heart,
and each cherished a secret hope of
reconciliation. She thought that
Arthur would repent and own his
fault: he believed that Mabel would
repent and call him back.

did not even know what had become of
her old love. He might be dead or
married married to that sweetheart
he had boasted "he could find, as pret
ty as Mabel and not so jealous."'
Mabel had tried oh. so hard! to put
fickle Arthur out of her thoughts, but.

would stir the pot-pourri into perfume,
the ghost of that dead summer and

murmuring her baby prayer, "Now I
lay me down to sleep."
Then Mabel knelt to pray also, and
to her nightly petition she added, as
often before: 4,God bless Arthur,
wherever he may be, and give him a
happy life. Amen.'
The joyous Christmas morning
dawned with dazzling sunshine on the
bright, new fallen snow, and Blossom
was very happy with the new doll and
sugar plums in her red stocking, but
for sweet Mabel there was no Christ
mas token, although in former years
the festal season had showered her
with gifts. With deft lingers she pre
pared their simple breakfast of tea and
toast, and just as they finished eating
their laundress entered.
She was a sunny tempered old negro
woman, once Blossom's loving nurse,
and since then she had insisted on do
ing their small wash, charging only a
nominal sum, such as she knew Mabel
could afford to pay.
Blossom laughed with delight over
the big yellow orange Mammy gave
her, then the old woman opened her
neat basket and brought out the snowy
garments so daintily laundered, ex

she rushed to the rose-jar.
"Indat evysing in dere!" she lisped,
joyfully, and boldly oveturned the
pot-pourri upon the floor.

the spices and withered roses poured in

broke the seal of the dear letter whose

two long weary years.
And under date of two years ago.
Arthur had written in a passion of
love and remorse and tenderness:
"Mv Daiimnc. Mauei.: I was in the

She turned on the old black woman,
her blue eyes haggard with despair.
"The letter was from Arthur.to make

and she fell sobbing, with her loveU

golden summer when she and Arthut
had been happy together.
So black Mammy, with a sob of dis

Mabel alternately kissed and wept
over the letter all day long, but in the
early gloaming she heard a manly

Brighton (England) Advertiser of June
G, 17'J: "A rare phenomenon is re
ported from St. Malo. llecently during
the afternoon, between the hours of !
and 5, three perfect suns were seen all
in a row above the western horizon.
The slc3' was very clear at the time, and
there was no one who saw the unusual
sight that believes it to have been a
mirage or other atmospheric illusion.
The central seemed more brilliant than
his two luminous attendants, and be
tween the three there seemed to be a
communication in the shape of waves
of light composed of all the prismatic
colors. At about tlie same time a rain
bow made its appearance at a short dis
tance above the central sun, upside
down that is to say, the two ends
pointed toward the zenith and the
bow's neck toward the horizon. "
