Ho stood before tlie wdop window gnz
at the dihplay of fireworks, with big.
bright eyea. He was a little fellow,
about seven or eight years oM. and lie
low the nsria) size for hiH ag. After he
had etood there long enough to coit.it
all the packs of firecrackers and im
agined the grand time he could have
with even a dozen of these noisy red
sticks, he turned away with a tiny, wist
ful eigh, and walked up to a fruit stand
that was close by.
"Gi'ine one yer hestestest oranges an
a peach," lie haul The Italian looked
at him: first at the dirty little face, then
down at the bare feet, blue from the
cold pavement and blackened with inn i
The little fellow felt flie contempt in W;i-
look given nun. and drawing iiim-ieji mi
with all the dignity worthy of u perfee

He received the orange and e:ti-l-which
he tucked into tiie pockets of I:.
ragged trousers without taking a bit"
Just then another small street arab
came on the scene.
"What's y-r been get ten firecracic

A Secularist "Christening."
On Sunday evening, at the Hall '-t
Science in London, ii. V. Foote. piv-i
dent of the National Secular social
j-rformed a ceremony which has of
liecome almost obsolete among Fret
thinkers '-the naming of inCants." tu
wit: The parents ajipeared on the plat
turin with their child, a baby of three
mouths Mr. Foote brieiiy explained
that the custom of publicly naming chi!
dren, which had been frequently oil
served by Mr. Uradlangh. Mrs. Besant
and other Secularist lecturers, was in n
sense intended to be a travesty of any n
ligious function. If parents desired then
offspring to be pnblicly identified wnli
the Freetliought party, there was no rea
son why this should not be done.
Then Mr. Foote, having kissed the
baby with due solemnity, named it
Carlile Uridlaugh Owen (iolding." Ti;.
first of this portentous string of "given
names" is derived from Richard Carlil -who
suffered ten years of imprisonment
early in this century for asserting the
right of free publication. Mr. Foote ex
pressed a hope that, when the child be
comes old enough to understand the sur
nificance of the names he bears, be may
prove worthy of them. Cor. Public
Conl in a River.
During the several freshets which hnvt
occurred in the Susquehanna river fly
past spring a vast amount of "culii:'
from the anthracite coal fields floated
down the river witli the debris coming
out of the North Branch and its tribti
taries. Large quantities of this culm ot
coal dirt, which was washed from tin
huge banks of that material at the co t!
breakers, lodged at the heads of the sev
eral islands opposite and above the city,
and recently parties have secured tons
of it by digging it out of the sand and
screening it. producing a good quality
of pea and chestnut coal for boiler use.
A considerable quantity of egg ot
larger sized coal is also gathered fron
the bottom of the river, where it lias
lodged among the gravel, and is removed
in a perfectly clean state. All the larger
sizes of coal have become more or ".-
rounded by the action of the water
Tons of this material are gathered din
ing the summer when the river is low.

A Dojj's Sympathy,
Saturday afternoon a case of remark
able sytnpathy on the part of a dog was
witnessed on Church street, near the
postoffice. A small dog strayed out into
the street and was run over by a passing
vehicle. He was not permanently crip
pled, but appeared hurt across the bac;
and at first lay howling and squirmi'i-.-in
the street. Another dog of an entir
ly different breed was standing on tin
sidewalk when the accident occurred
Promptly he went to the assistance
his injured companion, and by pushing
him with his nose aided him in rising,
and then escorted him to the sidewalk
with ever' possible demonstration of
mute sympathy, and stood by him until
the partly paralyzed animal was able to
hobble off. Persons who witnessed it
expressed astonishment at the unusual
spectacle. West Chester (Pa.) News.
To Keep In sorts Off from Tree.
The tying of a piece of wool round a
tree stem to keep down the bugs and
vermin is a poor idea, because it is based
on the supposition that ail these nui
sances ascend from the ground, whereas
in most instances, the eggs are laid in
the foliage above the supposed gnard
The only actual preventive involves ;
delicate toleration, which, however, can
be successfully performed by a man win:
a steady hand. It consists in boring a
small hole in the tree near the ground
and filling it with sulphur. The s;.
carries this over the tree and there v.-ii:
be few insects settle or crawl on auy
part of it. The spring is the best tini
to do this, but with a 6troug healthy tr-t
it can be done now witn perfect safety

riie boundary line between the United
states ami the British jiossessions in
North America once more threatens to
become the subject of international dis
pute, conference and arbitration A hrdf
century ago "Fifty-four Forty or Fight"
was a campaign cry, and the coming
controversy begins at that line, from
which President Polk retreated, the once
northern boundary of Oregon territory
being the southern boundary of our ter
ntory of Alaska. The discussion of the
ownership of Kevillagigedo, Pearse and
Wales islands, ami of the line of the
Portland canal, will rival the content
over San Jnau island and San Kosario oi
De Haro straits, decided in favor of the
United States, by the emperor of (it-r
many as arbitrator, in 172.
Each year that the boundary line
tween Alaska ami British Columbia t
mains in question increases the difficulty
of determining it. Each year settle
ments are increasing in numbers, mop
private interests are involved, arid ti
region in di.-pute becomes more valu;.i..
to each claimant. There is great in!i:
ference to the question on our side of tl
line, but in Ihe Dominion it is well un
derstood, and parliament and publ:i

The return to Milwaukee of livr!- .
Sidley after an absence of forty-one year
is to his relatives almost as if the -. .1

For some time his relatives heard fin;,
him regularly. Suddenly tin. ni,;v

he was mourned as dead. As was after

imj destroyed. The families had moved
and his letters did not reach their proper
destination. Likewise Mr. Sidley ha
moved and the letters sent y his fam
ily failed to reach him.
Three year ago he employed a lawy--to
find his relatives, and after a f
months he was in communication wirii
them. This year Mr. Sidley, now sixtv
two years of age, decided to visit In.
relatives in Milwaukee, and he arrived
there this week from Australia, li
