of th M-LU.itions of Gotham's small
boy, and according to one of these
urchins a yood revenue is derived from
the bu.siue.H.s. The practice is known as
"Caiuula business." A gang of eight oi
ten boys liesiege the entrance to the
hridge and elevated road every morning
and keep an argus eye on all jiersons
carrying newspapers. They stretch out
their arms asking for the newspaper

The "newsies" are very persistent,
and occasionally get into little snarl
with dyspcptici persons who get down
town in bad humor. The temper of
tZ'uso people might be intensified' dM
they know that, according to a con f 6.
sion of one of the boys, a newsdealer of
a eiieculative turn of mind originally
put the boys up to the practice they fol
low. If the newspapers are too much
soiled to sell, the boys turn them ovei
to the speculator, who holds them in re
serve, paying the boys a pittance and
then realizing full value by handing
them over to the respective newspapers
as "return" and getting copies of the
current date for them.
The youngsters have learned his meth
od though, and most of them do theb
own "returning" as well as "begging"
now. The practice is bad every way, as
it is fast converting the little hustlers
into indolent beggars. New York Com
"All's Well That Kmls Well."
The Scotch, with unconscious absurd
ity, sometimes talk of "tempting Prov
idence." In writing "All's Well That
Ends Well," Shakespeare was "tempt
ing" the higher criticism. Ever since
the days of Zenodotus in Alexandria the
higher criticism ha9 reveled in "athe
tizing," or marking as spurious, this part
of an author's work because it is "un
worthy of him," that part because it is
'not in his style," a third portion lie
cause it is a rejietition of something he
has said elsewhere, and so on, till in
Homer there are few lines to wfcich
some German or some Alexandrian
Greek has not urged objections. To
similar exercises of idle ingenuity has
"All's Well That Ends Well" been ex
posed. When Lucian met Homer in the For
tunate islands, he asked the poet which
of the rejected passages were really his
own. "All and every one of them,'
answered the shade; and Shakespeare's
ghost might have made as inclusive a
response to critical inqtiiries. Yet "All's
Well" is certainly a play full of difficul
ties and enigmas. It was first printeu
in the folio of 1023, and very badl
printed it was. None of the drama,
contains so many passages that appear tc
be corrupt; none is so rich in the unin
telligible; none so open to conjectural
emendation. Andrew Lang in Harper's

A fox was one day seen coming ouo ol

lie hid in the heather for awhile and
then pushed out something on the water,
which proved to be a bunch of moss.
The wind took it into the middle of the
lake and blew it past some ducks sitting
on the surface.
Having watched his venture for per
haps ten minutes with apparent satis
faction, and observed that it neared the
ducks without arousing their suspicions,
our friend began to collect another and
larger bunch of moss, which he allowed
to float in the same direction, but this
time he swam behind it, taking care to
show only his eyes and nose above
Just aa it was passing the group of
ducks he made a sudden dive, pulled
down a bird and swam back to shore
under water. Arrived there he carried
the duck to the pile of stones, where his
wife and daughter were no doubt wait
ing to enjoy the fruits of his labors.

Immunity for the Fireflies.
Eirds do not eat fireflies, and eve
bats, which seem to eat everything else
that they can chew or 6wallow, never
touch a lightning bug. There must be
something distasteful in this insect to
the feathered world, and thus the spe

lightning bugs would soon become ex

only serve the purpose of attracting
It may be that the uncanny appear

Wild Horses in Russia.
In the steppes of Russia, where wolves
abound and the horses lead a wild life
and have to shift for themselves, it is
said that a young colt will sometimes be
made so furious by the persecutions of
his enemies that he will rush wildlv
among a drove of wolves and bite and
strike until he has slaughtered a large
number of them. These horses are ex
ceptionally fierce, rendered so, it is sup
posed, by the extreme variations in the
climate. At one time of the year they
suffer from the intense heat of a tropical
sun" and at another they live among
raging snowstorms and extreme cld, r
The Polite gwliumir.
Directly the bathing season comes on
a rTomiiH-nt feature of it apiears in the
person of the polite and gentlemanly

complishments render him, in his own
eyes at least, absolutely bewitching iu
He is so jiolite, is this essentially sum
mer production. His hand is always out
stretched to guide into the briny the
timid, shrinking bather of the feminint
persuasion. So good is his heart hv
needs no introduction. He is above tho
mere petty trifles of mundane propriety,
and in a spirit of genuine philanthrop
comes to the rescue of the fair in a pro
miscuous manner delightful to behold.
His attentions are extremely numerous,
yet lie does discriminate in a measure,
as his gentle offices are usually per
formed for the prettier and younger
novices at the shrine of Neptune.
Simply in a spirit of kindness and
with a desire to overcome their exces
sive timidity he guides them far out
where the water is deep and the waves
are high, and then smiles rapturously
when they cling to him in abject terror.
He does not realize that they would
embrace a rope or 6par with the same
fervor, but considers it a compliment to
his own personality, which, in all prob
ability, has made no impression what
ever on the terrified female.

The late Professor Elias Loomis lie
came interested in the subject of gene
alogy in early life, and for nearly forty
years before his first publication he col
lected from time to time materials for a
list of the descendants of his ancestor,
Joseph Loomis, who came from Brain
tree, England, and settled in Windsor,
Conn., in 1639. In 1870 he published a
list containing 4,340 descendants of Jo
seph Loomis bearing the Loomis name.
After five years of research he published
the second edition of the "Loomis Gene
alogy," in which are given 8.CS0 names
which bore the Loomis name, descen
dants of Joseph Loomis in the maJe
Five years later, in 1880, he printed,
iu two additional volumes, a provisional
list of 19,000 descendants of Joseph
Loomis in the female branches. At the
time of his death he left in manuscript
many corrections and additions that
will be of use to the future Loomis gene
alogist. Newton's Memoria of Elias
He Never Drinks Water.
Jack Irvin, of the Glover's Mill coun
try, bears the distinction of being prob
ably the only, living man in the United
States who has not swallowed a drop of
water for thirty-six years. Mr. Irvin is
now in his eighties, and for more than
an average lifetime has rigorously ab
stained from the use of the liquor that
fills but does not inebriate. Neither
does he drink intoxicating liquors. At
his meals Mr. Irvin drinks coffee or tea
or milk, as the notion takes him. Be
tween meals when Mr. Irvin feels his
thirst growing he gets out his pipe and
smokes it. While Mr. Irvin is in pretty
fair health, his neighbors say that his
looks would indicate that he is pretty
well dried up. Glasgow Times.

Few Accidents on English Railways.
The Englishman who, following
Charles Francis Adams, declared that
the safest place in which to spend ai
hour or two is an express train on one
of the main railways, has had his idea
confirmed by the fact that last year only
five passengers were killed on all the
railways of the United Kingdom, where
as in the streets of the metropolis alon
147 deaths and 5,784 personal injuries
resulted from accidental circumstances
connected with the vehicular traffic.
Too Hot to. Think.
A Brooklyn housewife took her cook

"Sure, mum," was the frank reply, "I
