A GOOD OLD CUSTOM.
.he Habit of Itendlni; Aloud lit the Home
Has 1 alien Into Neglect.
There is a kikhI old custom which, it is
A Ih feared, h.ts i.ilh u Into neglect and if
eo certainly deserves to lie revived. It is
that of readiuv aloud in the family or utter
siKial cin:le. lu former days, when Usiks
were few and newspapers) less plentiful and
cheap than now, this practice was exceed
ingly common. Many circumstances fa
vored it. In most homes there was actual
ly what f jr t he most part there is now only
poetically a "hearthstone," where blazed a j
avnt lire t-uoh wiuur ereniiitf, around j
which all the memlK-rs of the family until- '
cred nightly, rrom the KrHiulfather in his
slippers ami the Kraudmother with her
kuitlui),' work to the baby with his ratllu.
At first after the blinds were drawn and
the Ki'cit lamp was lighted there would
lie conversation iimon the elders and
Kameh anions the youiiKsters, but by and
by the very lit lie ones would fall asleep
and lie tucked into trundle beds. Perhaps
grandfather mid grandmother would dot
a bit, but brighten up and listed loudly to
the well loved manly or womanly voice
reading the most interesting news of the
lay, followed by selections from a maga
zine, from a book of favorite poems or
travels or standard fiction. There are mul
titudes of middle aged people today whose
fondest recollections of youth are associ
ated with long winter evenings partly
spent in listening to or sliuring in family
Where lion sea ure heated by furuacca or
steam radiators in every part,, where gas
or electric light are in every room, where
literal ure is so abundant that everybody
can provide it for himself, the conditions
that once mude such scenes as we have de
scribed almost, a necessity In every Intelli
gent household no longer exist, hut what
has ceased to be a necessity is nevertheless
a privilege, and those who neglect it do not
know what they lose. Cold print lacks
the charm of the living human voice.
Words spoken have double the potency of
words seen, but nut heard. Accent, Inlleo
lion, modulation, tones of mirth and pa
thos, coming from the heart and going to
the heart are tilings that lend enchant
ment to reading nlnuil In a group where
affection unites the members in a common
boud. Ti en, too, it gives rise to the best
kind of conversation. It mingle iiistrm;
tiou with entertainment. It develops mu
tual sympathies and tastes. It stimulates
thought. It sweetens labor. It stores the
memory with never to be forgotten images
that make coming years brighter and sur
vive through separations of time and space.
Those who already know how delightful
it is need no urging, lint it is not alone lu
families that reading aloud may be prac
ticed with pleasure and pruflt. In thisamt
every large city t litre are vast numbers of
people, particularly young people, who are
deprived of the privileges of home. Many
are clerks in mercantile or financial houses,
others are employed during the day iu va
rious Industrial pursuits and have no reg
ular places of abode except, boarding
houses, llow to spend their evenings is a
problem, There are, to be sure, abundant
places, but however wholesome and inno
cent the best of these may lie they ought
nut to claim nil the spare time of any class
of persons. One excellent plan would Iks
for a few congenial spirits who are ac
quainted, say from two to half a dozen
young men or an equal number of young
women, to nrrange for meeting once a
week or oftener the oftener the better
and taking turns iu reading aloud and
talking over guod literature. New York
I'nlnt for Iron llridges.
In some remarks on the subject of paint
ing Iron work, nt the second annual meet
ing of the American International Associa
tion of Superintendents of llridges and
buildings at Cincinnati, Mr. G. M. Held
stated that he found many Iron ore paints
contained phosphorus and sulphur, which
damaged the iron: Asphalt um paints often
contained so much benzine that after dry
ing the surface was left rough, affording a
lodgment for sulphur from the locomotives
and moisture from the atmosphere, caus
ing oxi'l'iihin of the metal. Muny pre
pared paints were too viscous and had to
be thinned so that they lacked durability.
On the whole, hn preferred pure linseed oil
and lead so colored as not to absorb heat.
All iron In bridges should be first coated
with lmiled linseed oil. When two or more
surfaces were to be riveted together each
should receive a coat of paint In the shop,
and then when the structure Is completed
it should receive two coals of lead and oil
paint of some light gray or stone color,
liefore painting ull rust should be care
fully cleaned o!T. Experience, he added,
showed that bridges cared for in tills way
had proved more economical to maintain
than those painted with other than lead
and oil paints. Engineering.

A BEAUTIFUL SCENE.
Happy School Children In an lodlauapo
In ludiunitiMilis 1 entered one of tht
rooms contuininu; the youngest children
at the time of the opening exercises.
The scene 1 encountered was a glimpse
of fairyland. I was in a room foil ol
bright and hnppy children, whose cyei
were directed toward the teacher, not
becuuse they were forbidden to look in
any other direction, but because to
them the most attractive object in the
room was their teacher. She under
stood them, sympathised and loveJ
tliem, and did all in her power to in
terest them and make them happy.
The room itself was charming. Thi
window oills were filled with livinj
plants, and living plant were scattered
here and there throughout the room.
The teacher's desk was literally strewn
with flowers, and upon each of the chil
dren's desks flowers had been pltioed to
welcome the little ones to school.
The book used during the reading les
son wiw the book of nature tho plant
they had just been studying. The scene
presented by the happy little children,
each with a flower in his hand, surround
ing the teacher, who was emiling npon
them, was truly beautiful.
For reading mut ter the children wen
called ujxin for sentences expressing
thoughts concerning their flowers. The
sentences wero written upon the board
by the teacher, and when a number of
them had been written the pupils began
to read them. The children were inter
ested because they all took an active
purt in the lesson from the beginning to
the end. They w ere ull observing, all
Some of the little oneseven committed
the crime of laying their hands upon the
teacher, and she so far forgot herself as
to fondle them in return. Yet the dis
cipline was perfect. What is perfect
discipline in the classroom but perfect
attention? There was no noise, there
were everywhere signs of life, and such
signs of life as become a gathering of
young children. Dr. J. M. Uice in Fo
The Madonna of Itottlcelll.
As we examine the various madonnas
by Botticelli in the galleries of Loudon,
Berlin, Paris and Florence we cannot
fail to be struck by the ardor of emotion
that seems to have animated the painter
in hiM search for the perfect type of
beauty realized in the "Urownin?? of the
Virgin." The construction of the head
of the Virgin is essentially the same in
ail Botticelli's pictures, but the fleshly
mask and the expression vary, and the
final charm of each one remains an un
We feel that this madonna is an inti
mate vision of the ideal woman who
'iinparadised" the painter's soul; so
Dunte speaks of Beatrice, the object of
surpassing desire. We marvel at the
mouth, at the eyes, at the eyelids, at tha
sweep of the brows, at the thick golden
threaded hair, at the splendor of the
draped head over which angels bold
crown, at the beautiful color of the
flesh, which suggests a souvenir of the

Now that electricity is being more and
more widely used it is no longer safe for
a woman to carry her watch in the
place whore it bus always been most se
cure in her corsets. A New York
woman a few days ago was going to pay
a visit of curiosity to an electric light
plant. She was warned that her watch
might be charged with electricity, and
so she did not take it with her.
The precaution was useless. The net
day the movements of the watch were
most eccentric. Now it was fast, now
slow, but nover right. She asked bet
husbund, who was an electrician, what
could be the matter with it, and ho soon
found that her corset steels had been
charged with electricity during her visit
to the plant, and that next day, when
she placed her watch in its usual resting
place, the chargo had been communi
cated to its works.
Of course women have often worn cor
sets that have been "charged" at the
shop. Bui here is a new idea. New
