Illstorlan I.onnlnjj's Happy Thought.
the venerable JJenson J. IiOssing told
the story, in New York, recently, at the
dinner to American authors by the Satur

tho idea of his "Field Book of the Iievolu

It was this recita that suggested to Mr.

traditionary lore still clung aoout them.
Tho idea was so captivating that he closed

Novul SIc 'io.l of rrocurliig Livelihood.
A Fruitless Fxprdit ion.
One man in a seaport town seemed to
be entirely alone in his method of procur
ing a livelihood. He discovered islands
for a living. There have been explorers
sinco tho days of Columbus to the.se days
of Henry M. Stanley, but this man was
not an explorer; ho did not lit out un ex
pedition or lead a party for tho enrich
ment of geographical knowledge. Other
men, being short of provisions, sometimes
go out to a stream and cast in their lines
to catch a mess for supper or breakfast.
This man, when short of funds, went out
t. sea and li.shed at an island that ho
ir.igui nvo on it until no cmiiu discover

and at the time tho writer met hiiu ho
claimed lo have discovered ninety-nine
islands, and as ho claimed to have ob
tained a patent for each island from tho
United States government, ho was tho
owner of that number of islands, scattered
around tho globe.
When ho mentioned in a casual way
that among his unconsidered trifles he
had so many islands, tho writer expressed
his astonishment, and said that the fond
est desire of his heart had always been to
possess an island.
"Well, I'll give you one," said tho cap
tain, with all the free heartedness that
characterizes a sailor. "I've got niuro
than I want."
"Your kindness almost overpowers me.
What must I do to enter into posscssinnV"

recuilarities of American T-ses.
The e5orts of tha v ar department to
secure a field glass for tho service of
greater power than the one they now use
has discovered the fact that the eyes of
the average American are closer together
than those of men in foreign countries.
Tho doublo glassa known as tho field
glass, now used is weaker than that used
in the armies of Europe. It is of only
from five to six powers entirely too weak
for the purpose. The only glass they can
get of sufficient power is a single spy
glass, which is defective in that it does
not take in a broad enough field. This is
a very serious defect la the equipment of
tho American army, but there seems to. be
no immediate prospect of its correction,
because our eyes are' too close together.
Some of the colored troops may be able to
use a different glass, but tho white Yonkr
soldier cannot overcome the national pecu
liarity. The best military field glass in
