Oae Kind of Selfishness. '
There are many phases of selfishness
and perhaps the most trying of the
various manifestations of this fault of
faults is not recognized under this name
at all. What is called sensitiveness,
however, is very often nothing but sel
fishness pure and simple a morbid,
miserable form, too making the person
herself and every one around her un
comfortable. A frank, generous, unsel
fish nature is not forever on the lookout
for slights and unkindnesses on the part
of others. What can be more trying
than a person who is continually having
her feelings hurt, who magnifies every
hasty, unintentional word into a griev
ance, brooding thereon until it assumes
What can be more distinctly, morbidly
selfish and self seeking than such a dis
position? Yet people of that tempera
ment seldom if ever properly diagnose
their troubles, but if they are honest
they must acknowledge that they are
continually thinking of themselves and
of the relations of others to them. These
people are generally well meaning and
easy to please, not realizing that they
are not living for others but only for
themselves by thus indulging their
"feelings" and hypersensitiveness. New
Mirrors Made of Wood.
In Germany wood with a mirror pol
ish is coming into use as a substitute for
metal in the finishing of ornamental
work. In order to make the wood sus
ceptible to a polish of this order it must
first be submitted to a bath of caustic
alkali for two days, the bath being kept
at a temperature of 175 degs. Fahr. all
the while. Next it is soaked in a solu
tion of hydrosulphate of calcium for
from twenty-four to thirty-nine hours.
The third dip is into a bath of concen
trated solution of sulphur. The final
dip is into a solution of acetate of lead
at a temperature of 100 degs.
After being thoroughly dried the wood
is ready to have' the metallic surface
imparted to it, which is done by giving
it a rubbing with finely powdered lead,
tin or zinc. Wood treated in the above
manner, it is said, will take a polish al
most equal to that so often imparted to
steel, silver or nickel. St. Louis Re
public. Culture In Boston.
"Is it," wondered a New York woman
just returned from Boston, "because of
the use of the sounds of 'a' and 'o' which
we are accustomed to associate with cul
tivated speech that Boston saleswomen
seem such refined and attractive per
sons? They seem a race of gentlewom
en, and it was a positive pleasure to be
served by them. I noticed also that their
hands and uails were beautifully kept,
and many of them reallj did wear eye
glasses. As to that, however, I got in
two different horse cars whose drivers
had a very scholarly look from the same
cause, and a sign posted conspicuously
on Boston Common read, 'Professor
Brown, Artistic Bootblack.' I begin to
believe the stories of the culture of the
masses in Boston." New York Times.
Character Shown in Tliuuibn.
There is as mtich character iu the
thumbs of people as in their faces. A
long first joint of the thumb indicates
will power; a long second joint indicates
strong logical or reasoning power; a
wide, thick thumb indicates strong indi
viduality, while a broad nob at the end
of the thumb is a sure indication of ob
stinacy. The thumb is the character
istic feature of the human hand, a char
acteristic in which it differs from the
hand of the monkey, and of all parts of
the hand no one is so strongly individual
or telltale as the thumb. St. Louis
The Aral, when they wih to pro
nounce their most forcible malediction,
say, "May thy soul know no more rest
than the hat on the head of a European!"
The hats of kings and emperors must
have been tpeciallj in their minds when
they framed this curse.

Women have their own ways of keep
ing their consciences clear and their
minds freed from all uncharitableness.
One woman when she enc centers a dis
agreeable person goes off into a corner
and counts off on her fingers the agree
able people she knows. This she does
not in effect, but literally as she might
tell her beads, and she keeps orvjoiug it
until the image of the disagrecXde one
Another woman in the presence of an
unusually annoying circumstance was
observed to unhook and rehook her
gown. The rebooking miscarried sev
eral times to her great impatience. She
was asked why then had she unhooked
it. Her ansirer was that hooks and eyes
were the most disagreeable things ever
invented. One always began to hook
them in the middle, and the chances
were ten to one that you linked the
wrong iair. But this you did not know
until you were half through and one
side came out ahead. So with . that,
and tho strain upon your fingers, you
were naturally exasperated, and as they
were only hooks and eyes it didn't much
matter what you said. With the chance
to free your mind other disagreeable
things seemed almost pleat4ht.
It will be observed that it occurred to
neither of these women, who were both
religious, to fall on their knees and ask
in the old fashioned way to be delivered
from anger and ill feeling This was
not because they distrusted the efficacy
of this method, but simply because they
hadn't at the moment, and seldom had,
the time or place. ' Also, both being sci
entific minded the one knew that . in
thought as in physics two beings cannot
occupy the same space at the same time,
and so pried out one thought with an
other; while the other, by simply trans
muting her angry force from an incor
poreal offense to hooks and eyes, had
the relief of its expenditure without its
sin. New York Evening Sun.
Such m Roman tie Affair.
She was a convalescent from la grippe,
and as she leaned back in the depths of
her easy chair she played with the roses
in her lap, which had been brought her
by the first caller she had been able to
receive, and smiled over some stories he
was telling her of a summer at well,
we'll only say at a certain fashionable
watering place on Narragansett bay.
"One of the beauties whom I used to see
at the casino," said Tie, "was a young
married belle about twenty-three or
four, I should think, and her husband
was about sixty, and it was great fun
watching them. There was such a good
story, bona fide truth it was, too, about
their engagement. He called at her
home one evening and offered his heart,
hand and fortune in correct style.
Pretty Miss Bud said she 'must ask
mamma,' and coyly tripped up stairs to
mamma, who told her that every girl
did not get such a chance as that, and of
course she was to accept him.
"Down she went, picturing the ardent
lover awaiting her return with anxious,
throbbing heart and found the old gen
tleman comfortably asleep in the big
gest armchair, while an occasional snore
attested to the depth of his slumbers."
"I hope she didn't wake the poor old
thing up," said the convalescent, when
she got hep breath again after her laugh.
"Oh, yes she did. Catch her losing that
chance! She woke him up and told him
it was all right and ..she'd have him."
Boston Saturday Gazette.
Thackeray is verily as great a realist
as a great artist can be. He prides him
self On presenting life as it is, unseas
oned by the hot spices of artificial ro
mance. Nay, he employs devices to en
trap the credulity of the reader the de
vice, for example, of making Arthur
Pendennis, whom we know independ
ently, tell the story of his young friend
Clive Newcome, and the noble, meek
hearted gentleman with whom he had
seen the boy at the Cave of Harmony.
Yes, Thackeray is a great realist, if
ever there was one. His characters are
no decorative figments to amuse our
fancy. They have become some of the
men and women we know best personal
friends or foes of our own. It consoles
us for living in these late days of a re
formed parliament that we have lived
late enough to have known Colonel New
come. They were no tears of unreal
sentiment that we wept over his martyr
dom; it was a very genuine itch we felt
to kick Barnes. Blackwood's Magazine.
The Necessity of Ihe Times.
Inventive faculty ' will not have
reached high tide until some one per
fects an envelope nap warranted to
stick. One of the considerable discom
forts of life takes the form of a non
adhesive mucilage that allows the en
velope ipon which it is placed to peel
open again and again as it is pressed
down, until in a fine frenzy the letter
writer is driven hither and yon for real
mucilage. And the finer the quality of
the stationery the more trials lie in the
wake of the envelope.
If they are trusted to the mails with
out an extra dab of mucilage, they may
be depended upon to arrive at their des
tination invitingly open or accessible
to the sneakish individual, who in spite
of our civilization does exist, who is ca
pable of going against all written and
unwritten laws and tamiiering with a
seal. A padlocked envelope is one of
the necessities of the times. Boston

The Value of pearls..
Nothing varies so much in valne as
pearls. With them fashion affects the
market constantly. Sometimes white
ones are sought, while other tints at in
tervals are iu demand. For some years
past black pearls have been the rage. A
fine specimen, worth $60u, will fetch
$1,000 perhaps if another can be got to
match it perfectly. Kansas City Timei?.
