Whilo land wns cheap and is cheap jieople
were accustomed, and are now in fa-t, to re
gard tho death of t or k as a matter of little

five yean no, from which time tho profession

in tliU country for well educated veterina

years ago in thin city there were, ac
cording to Dr. Alexander F. Llautard, tho
lean of the American Veterinary col lego in
West Fifty-fourth street, only three well
educated veterinary burgeons. Now there

directory. Hut tho names in tho direct
ory do not give an idea, of the real number
t t men practicing here. And quacks still
flourish, not alouo in this city, hut all over
the country.
It d-s not pay a skillful veterinarian to
follow his profession in a country town, and
hundreds -f towns, villages and hamlet
throughout the land rejoico in their "horse
and cow d-n'tors." Jinny of them aro men
of good common sense and can pull their
patient. through, Lut the largo cities, where
frtock i valuable, can't exactly lo proud of
veterinarians of a class that humanitarians
protest against. An animal cannot tell its
troubles, cannot sue for damages; but if it
could, would it not resent tho offices of a
"doctor" who can scarcely write his own
name? Yet, on good authority, it may lc
nai.I that there are mich men in tho profes
sion. It is Raid that out of 0,000 or 8,000
veterinary Mirgeous in the country only 1,000
.are educated.

Professor Law employs from fourteen to

The Line A Ions Which Tie Works Fer
tile In "Scheme" Bfethods.
A lato aspiraut for honors iu the news
paper world is the, "loom writer." lie enters
a town, and with his quick eye and acute
mipd readily comprehends the line along
which he must work. He is fertile in re
sources, "schemes," he says. lie talks with
somo of the leading men, and expresses his
surprise that a town so happily situated,
with so many natural advantages, has not
become more widely known. There is no
earthly reason, he ays, why Boomville
should not become a metropolis. Thousands
of ieople in tho crowded states along tho At
lantic coast aro searching tho papers eagerly
for a western town of promiso in which to
invest their hoards of wealth. Tho money
burns to lw invested. All that is needed is
to let these greedy people know about Boom
villo and its wonderful resources.
Having interested his hearers, tho boom
writer now makes a contract with tho pro
prietor of tho daily Gossip or tho weekly
Tell Tale for a certaiu amount of space iu
each issue.
Soon the quiet, slow going citizen sees in
hi morning jmper columns of burning, pro
phetic words graphic pictures of Boom
ville's prosperity and rich surroundings. He
opens his eyes in amazement to think lie has
lived in Boomvillo so long and has never
grasped these startling truths. Alliteration
runs mad in the columns of a paper which,
but a few days ago, was content to chronicle
tho local gossip of tho unassuming town.
Poetry, patriotism, figurative language,
columns of figures are crowded in a confused
mass. The boom writer knows how to make
figures lie.
Enthusiasm is contagious. Tho citia-ns of
Boomvillo grow interested. Ileal estate ofli
ces open in every vacant room, and trades in
lots become the chief business of tho day.
All these are duly chronicled in tho glowing
words of the boom writer, who begins now to
reap his harvest. He sells copies of each
issue of tho paper in bundles of hundreds to
tho enterprising citizens, who mail them to
friends and acquaintances in older towns.
A subscription list is made for the purpose
sending over tho land these graphic accounts
of the new metropolis. The boom writer
unfolds one scheme after another, as the ex
citement increases, and his pocket book grows
When his quick eye sees that tho cnthusi
asm begins to waver, tho boom writer ro
inemler3 that he is engaged to write up the
next town, and away he goes gayly, leaving
Boomville to sink slowly back into a quiet
life, but not the same life, for the boom
writer has so aroused the faith of tho Boom
villians in the future prosperity of their city
that years of dull times cannot wholly de
stroy their confidence. C. L. Stonakcr in

A Case ot Monomania.
The difficulty in distinguishing an insane
from a sane man, particularly if it be a case
of monomania, is oftentimes very great, as
tho following incident will show: A few
years ago a physician whose entiro life,
almost, aud practice had been spent in an at
mosphere of insauity, and who is considered
tho best authority extaut on such matters,
called at the St. Louis insano asylum for the
purpose of locking through it, relying on a
physician of his acquaintaiiCO who was lo
cated there to show him about, Sear the
gate he met a gentleman who was very se
date, courteous and intellectual. Of him he
inquired of his friend, only to learn that he
was absent at the time. Supposing his com
panion to bo a medical attache of the place,
from certain terms and theories peculiar to
tho medical fraternity, which tho latter ad
vanced, he engaged him in conversation.
Tho man was very rational and displayed a
thorough kuiihidge of tho classics and of
science and art as well, upon which iu talked
at length and very entertainingly.
Finally he volunteered to show the visitov
through tho Institution, and as he did so b
made a minute diMgoApis pf ?ach case which
was presented. Tho visitor was
until suddenly interrupted by tho appearance
of tho keeper and assistants, who unceremo
niously beiisd his edifying conductor, man
acled Lini and led him o a cell, despite his
violent resistance. This would hate been
quite natural under tho cfrcumstauces with
even a " 7?an antl tbo 2CPcrfc was unde
ceived still, nntil Lis former entertainer
shrieked back to him: '.'They're going to
crown me emperor of Germany, and I scorn
the crown! Save me, save me!" The ex
pert's medical friend appeared on the 6cej)0 a
little later and congratulated tho vis
itor on Lis narrow escape, informing
him, to his astonishment, that this
was tha most violent subject under their
charge; that he had cAcape bis cell for the
third tia.c, and that in the former instances
he had brutally beaten his keepers. This
tL;s)onstrates the inability of even the most
experienced jodento decide infallibly as to
the condition of a nuu?i mind. Dr. Max

Precious Iloure Lost in DUculng Ques
tions of Inferior Importance Little
Excuse for Goeitipy Gabble Callers
Who Bore Cs Ignorant Teople.
I havo been trying to enumerate at least
a part of tho ways in which life slijis into in
signiucance; lor until wo Know ino new wo
bhall not find tho remedy. Gossip unques
tionably takes a high plaeo in the list of men
tal and moral worth. By gossip I do not
I menn tho vulgar racking of a neighbor's
character or qualifications with delight at
the sport of backbiting. This sort of busi
ness I rank no higher than cock fighting and
bull baiting. Whoever engages in it is
either too course to comprehend tho values
of time, or is nauseated by each indulgence
until cured or ruined. Tho confirmed back
biter is so thoroughly diseased that she or ho
may bo ranked with phthisical patients not
to Im cured or not worth the curing.
But gossip is something a great deal more
general than backbiting. It is tho applica
tion of the mind to questions of positively in
ferior importance to the exclusion of matters
of permanent value. Of course it is not easy
from j-our htamlpoiiit to judge of what I
should bo conversing. A man is quite sure
,to dospiso questions of woman's dress jer
haps of dress altogether. But with us it in
volves art, and develojw tho ieculiarJy fem
inine capacity of appreciating fltncesin form
and color. But clearly th: m is avast deal
of intellectual wasto on small topics. This is
somewiiat excusable at parties, when tho
mind is btuefiod, of ten, in its abnormal de
sire to please or shine; when wo are com
piled to converse with those whoso intellec
tual tastes wo know nothing of. Terhaps it
is for this reason that it has coino to bo held
as ill breeding to introduce any topic of
weight. Can not society move with a
higher grade conversation? Tho effect at
present is to send sensible people home with
a feeling of distress and loss, while tho vapid
are made to consider that vapidity has
In our homo lifo and general social rela
tions there is far less excuso for gossipy
gabble. Those who aro unable to converse
except on trash should bo classed with tho
ash barrel scavenger and denied tho privi
lege of controlling any portion of our time.
We are privileged by nature to exclude tho
gossip from any householl familiarity.
With theso scavengers I class tho bores who
lack all valuation of tho time of other peo
ple, persons who do not gossip, but in reality
do nothing, and compel you to do tho some.
An honest person, man or woman, should
havo the days apportioned with great nicety
to occupancy and nso. For the unexpected
and unforeseeable interruptions one may
allow justly an hour a day. For probable
interruptions another hour. To avoid the
loss of two or three more hours requires both
tact and decision. It is perfectly right to
require all callers to report themselves, and
to reply to many of them "not at home," or
an equivalent.
There is no substantial reason why our
callers should not only send in a card, but
should also add tha object of the call aud
siKK-ify the amount of time desired. This,
placed on a card, will cause tho applicant
little time aud trouble, and will save tho
recipient vast loss. Is all the social obliga
tion on the side of the visited? I think not.
I believe na op.g has a right ia ask pup min
ute cf our time without apology and expla
nation. My time is my money. One hour is
worth a cash value. Whoever takes it from
me takes from my inoomo as well as my
comfort. This it is not righteous to demnnd
nor right for mo to allow. 'J'ueio n; o claims
of friendship. These aro compatible with
work. Truo friends will not rob each other.
There is compensation ia such cases.
I am not so confident what reward ov com
pensation thero may be for our necessary
dealings with ignorant people; and as a rule
this includes all the help we can employ.
Tho narrowness of their vision makes it im
possible for them to seo or teel with us, and
if we get oa with them at all we must come
down to their level and talk from their stand
point. This may not bo altogether injurious;
for we are likely to get too far away from
tho masses, and lose ail communicating
power. More than that, the highest' mental
lifo is too strictly a brain lifo. It is an tn
valuable power to bo able to drop down at
times into a more physical and simple life,
provided our doing so does not involve sensu
ous degradation. That danger is constantly
near, and must bft carefully guarded against.
Too close familiarity with tue grosser
sort is overwhelmingly fatal. But we may
go so far as to bo kindly and friendly, and
help to lift to a higher plaue. But nothing
is more difficult than honestly to secure the
real friendship of people morally and intel
lectually our inferiors. The largest generos
ity and mo,t kindly treatment will not make
a firm friend of one who cannot understand
you. And as a rule the ignorant can never
understand tho cultural. They may under
stand tho more ignorant, bus can use no
mental measure greater than that possessed
by themselves. Mary E. Spencer iu Globo
Democrat. An Organ of Paper.
A very original musical instrument has
recently been constructed fit Milan an or
gan whose pipes, instead of beiu of metal,
are of paper pulp. Its history is quite cu
rious. Father Giovanni Crispi Rigghizo,
having learned that the parish dell' Incora
nata, at Milan, was destituta of music for the
offices, conceived the idea of devising a
cheap material that would permit of con
structing organs under such conditions that
tho most unpretending communities could
purchase one of these instruments. This
monk, who hd passed his life in poverty,
was confronted by a lack of money, and,
notwithstanding bis efforts to caixy out his
undertaking, was beginning to despair of
success, when lie had the fortune to meet an
artisan, Luigi Colauibo, who understood the
construction of the instrument, and wa3
good enough to aid him ia carrying out his
They both wnt resolutely to work, and,
finally, in June, 1SS0, finished the iustru

cf lack of funds, they could not exceed
twenty-two registers, forty-four pedals and

Vfhat a Lady Principal Thluku of "Cram

A lady, who is principal of ono of the
largest and finest of cur public schools, and
whose mental and physical qualifications are
fur abovo the average, said: "Am I glad the
examinations aro over? Glad? Why, it is
like letting ono out of prison like lifting a
ton's weight from mo. It is to nio a terrible
ordouL Theso examinations of tho school
aro really examinations of me. My pupils'
standing is my standing. I am judged by it.
Sometimes when I think that all are well pre
pured someof them may fail me. I worry and
fret (to myself and within myself) more than
any one knows. 1 labor and strain some
times it is almost agony to prepare them.
I heartily denounce tho forcing, cramming
process. It? is wicked and wrong and un
reasonable, and very often defeats itself. I
cannot help what I have to do, and to go
through these examinations these children
must bo forced and strained. I can see
plainly, and so can any intelligent person,
that the children suffer in health mid iu
mind. It is cruel, it is unjust, it is very un
profitable. "Many I say many, and I know what I
say and mean it very many children
memorize lessons and can rejieat them like a
parrot; they tug, struggle, push aud pass
their examinations simply because they are
shoved or hoisted through by machine like
methods. They can glibly rejicat many
things that they study, of the souse and prac
tical application of which they aro utterly
ignorant. Girls, of course, are naturally
more prone to spells of exhaustion and faint

not an 'ordinary but extraordinary feature.

others who easier; labored beyond
their strength until they were stricken down
from sheer brain and body exhaustion. One
of theso I had cautioned repeatedly, and even
urged her to take a rest for awhile.
"She was near graduation, and felt that
unless she could pass examinations then she
would never havo another chance. She

Food for TervQils Patient,

of Henry R. Johnson, of St. Louis, as to the
use of milk and eggs in tho cases of nervous
patients, lie gives to such patients as many
as a dozen eggs, and as much as six or seven
pints of nulk a day. When this form of
treatment is associated with plenty of walk

of weight often takes place. "Tho greater
