Again, in tho concert room, in place of sur

tho lienuty of tlio singer lieliiuil tlio foot

muslcsliik into your soul, rocking it on waves
of emotion, and wafting it Insensibly Into
tho idenl world.

Tho poison convoyed by human teeth is re

cians hnvo to deal with. Ono of them says:
"I havo under my utteiition severe and most
complicated cases of blood poisoning, in
which the patient had hut slightly abraded
tho hnnil ill tho courso of a light by striking
tho knuckles ngniust tho teeth of his oppo
nent. I havo known hands thus o!snucd only
saved from amputation by tho application of
all tho resources of science. Tobacco or
whisky or derangement of tlio stomach from
many other causes may bo responsible for
this oisonous condition of tho teeth."
Itemoily for null Stones.
Dr. Hobert Knbiu recommends n teaspoon
fill of bicarboiiato of sodium in u tumblerful
of water, drank nt intervals through tho

which ho asserts to Ik) tho cause of tlio for

"If u young man has somo accomplishment,
if ho can sing u good song, lias a pleasant
faculty for private threatricals, a neat trick

dancer, ho Is much helped along in society,"
nlUrins Mrs. Hhorwood. However, tho sumo

well mannered, ho gets on without nny of
theso helps, but they aro undoubtedly nil

According to tho etiquette of tho cast, as
stated by Mrs. Sherwood, a young man
should seek llrst to know tho mothers of tho
young lad I is whom ho admires mid wishes
to visit. Ho should on a llrst visit send in
his enrd. After his llrst visit ho can dis
pense with that ceremony. In mi evening

dress black dross coat, vest and trousers,
faultless linen, and n white cravat. A black
cravat is crmisslblo, except nt dinner. Ho
may carry his lint and gloves in his hand.
As giving him somuthmg to hold, a cauo
also is a great help to a shy man. Ills feet
should lie In low shoes ami silk stockings if
ho wishes to Is) very moo. This is nut hulls
ponsablo oxcept for dancing, but it is very
liecomiiig. A white cravat is iudiscnsaljlo
for dinner or ball. No jewelry of any kind

Wlir the Year 1000 Will Not ho Conntnl

Tho year Is ra days, 5 hours and 49 minutes
long; eleven minute nro taken every joar to
make tlio year fltVt l-ldnyn long, nnd every
fourth yonr wo have nil extra day. This was
Julius t'lesur's arrangement. Wherodo tluwo
eleven minutes come frontl Thoy como from
tho future, and nro paid back by omitting
lonp year every 1(H) yours, lint If leap year
is omitted leguliuly every tOOIh year, in tho
course of KM) years It Is found that tho eleven
minutes taken each year will not only liavo
been paid buck, hut that a wholo day will
hnvo Iks'ii given up. Ho l'opo (Iregory III,
who Improved on On-mir's calendar In IfiSi),
decreed Hint every centurlal year divlsihlo
by I should Ixi n leap ear after nil. Ho wo
borrow eleven minutes each year, moro than
pay our borrowings back by omitting threo
lonp jcars In thieo eciituiinl years, ami
squnro matters by having a leap ear In tho
fouith cetitiitial year. I'oki tlregory's ar
rangement Is so exact, nnd tho borrowing
nnd paying back balance so closely, that un
borrow more than wo pay back to the extent
of only one day In !t,N'l yiars.

Tho origin of tho nlluslon to New Jersoy ns
ft foreign country Is as follows: "After tlio
downfall of the Unit Nucleoli his brother
Joseph, who had been king of Hpaln, mid his
nephew, l'rlnco Murnt, sought refuge In thin
country, bringing with them groat wealth,
Joseph llouiipnrto wished to build u ixilatlal
residence, but did not wish to lx'comoiicill
ssoii, having lioxsof returning to Kuropo.
To enable, him us an alien to hold real estate
required a special act of the legislature. Ho
trhsltogot one pnssisl in several states, but
fulled. He was chagrined oscclnlly liooauso
Pennsylvania ivfusisl. After this ho applied
to tho Now Jersey legislature, w lilch granted
both hint mid i'linco Murnt tho privilege of
purchasing laud. They bought n tract at
Uonlciitown, built mngiiltlceut dwellings and
lilted them up In tho most cosily manner,
Haro pictures, sculptures, eta, worn profuse
and selected with the greatest care, nnd tho
grounds laid out with exqiiislto taste. Joseph
lloniiparto's residence wns, perhaps, the llnest
of the country visited him and wero treatisl
courteously. Ho was extremely lllx-ral with
his money, nnd gavo great Impetus to Iho
business of tho littlo town. The l'hliailel
phinns, finding Hint he had apparently no end
of money, nnd that he used it to benefit busi
ness generally, regretted, when too late, that
they refused to let him locate among them
selves, mid, to keep up their mortllleatlon,
would continue to taunt Jerseymeii with hav
ing a king with importing tlio klngof HmiIii
to rule over them. Thoy wero culled Bpau
iiirdsnnd foreigners on that nccomit. Hut
theso taunts harmed no one, as tho Jersoy
men lost nothing by allowing liliu to settle
nmong tltein, ami thus "forolgnors," jok
ingly applied to Jerseymcn, has como
down to us long after IU origin has lx-eu for
gotten, except by a few of tho post genera

Adolx) houses nro inndo of uiihurncd brick.
Thoy nro in common use In Texas, .Mexico,
Central and South America. Tho bricks nro
made of lo.imy earth, containing about two
thirds Hue sand nml one-third clayey dust.
This moss Is mixed with wuter and then
pressed into molds of tho required hire. Taken
from the molds tho nilolios are placed on edge
on tho ground mid left to harden In tho sun.
In n few days they nro hnrd, comnict bricks,
without a crack. Thoy nro laid w Ith mud

is allowed for drying, and n similar spneo of

usually ouo story high, and tlio Insido Is
plastered lieforo tho roof is put on. The dura
tion of theso houses is much greater than
would 1k supposed, ns there are a huiiiIkt
now in existence which havo stood for moro
than a century.
Tho Moon nml tlio Weather.
Superstitions concerning the cir-ct of tho
moon on thoenith are very common, but aro
wholly without foundation in reality. Tlio
relation of the moon to the earth Is simply
that of n satellite, whoso attraction has un
important inlliieuce mi the motion In its
orbit, and on tho shifting level of its oceans,
causing tho tides, it might bo supposed that
if tho moon can attract tho water upon tho
surface of tlio earth she can also attract its
atmosphere, and thus, through movement of
tho ulr currents, have a jxirceptiblo Inlluenco
upon the weather. Hut investigation shows
that as the ncrlel mass is In no way confined
in estuaries or gulfs, its tldo caused by ex
ternal attraction must Ihj slight. So faros
can be indicated by tho barometer it Is too
sninll to bo wortli reckoning, ixing less tlmn
.001 of an Inch.
