Why Yawiiinif Is Healthy.
"Not only is it very healthy to
..yawn," says a French physician, '"'hut
.-artificial yawning hhoulil lie resorted
to in cases of wire throat, buzzing of
tho oars, catarrh and like troubles."
ft is said to Iks as efficacious in its
way as gargling tho throat, with
which process it should bo combined.
Tho reason stated is that during the
sict of yawning there is considerable
stretching of tho muscles of thephar
yux and soft palate, which aro iu
his way put through a sort of mas--sago,

Tho plaintiff brought his suit
in a justice court. Before the trial
tho magistrate and tho plaintiff had
some words on another matter. At

The Gibraltar of today can only
bo victualed by the good will of
Spain. If we were unhappily at war
with Spain und desired to victual tho
place, we should first have to silenco
the Spanish batteries round the bay,
and if these batteries were construct
ed as modern science enables them
to bo constructed we certainly could
not silence thorn, unless we landed,
anil by slow and laborious methods
captured them. This would practi
cally involvo an invasion of Spain on
a comparatively large scale, for until

cloth and Smashed Kverything.
One night Iiriu-iiuli invited several
friends to sup with him after a per
formance in Baltimore, and on reach
icg hisapartnients found the table set
and the waiters in readiness to liegin
bringing in the dishes. Ho was ex
tremely particular alxmt the appear
ance of his table, and always took a
critical view of the crockery, si! . ;
linen, etc., lieforo inviting his friends
to sit down, (hi this occasion his
eaglo eye discovered several small
holes in the tablecloth, and his auger
was all attaine in an instant.
Too full of wrath to speak, he
caught hold of the corner of the
cloth and gave ono long, quick jerk,
clearing tho table completely and
scattering knives, forks, spoons,
plates, etc., all over the room. The
astounded waiters ran to the proprie
tor with the tale, and when he ar
rived on tho scene there was (lunger
in his eye.
Brignoli knew he was in serious
trouble, and forthwith brought into
play all his cunning to get out of it.
He pretended that the waiters had
treated him in a most outrageous
manner; that the tablecloth was not
fit for a hog to eat off of; that the
dinner was cold; that tho wines
were warm in short, he made the
proprietor believe that everything
was just as bad as jiossible. Then
ho began to mollify him by praising
How was it that ewry one he
knew in tho whole United States had
recommended it to him? How could
it bo that good people thought so
well of it? Evcrylody had told him
that it was the only first class hotel
in Baltimore. And this and this
was the way a guest was treated 1
Surely there was some mistake.
Tho landlord could not possibly know
that ono of his guests had been so
itnixised on I No first class house
would submit to it!
In short, tho wily old fellow mad'
tho landlord thiuk him tho most
abused man on earth, and they were
soon the best of friends. The land
lord himself attended to the setting
of tho table. The best of everything
in tho house was put on it, and an
excellent dinner was served at his
exiienso. Brignoli gave tho waiters
$10 each for having hurt their feel

A Juke of a Court Fool.
The term fool is often misapplied.
Thus, Charles the Simple was no fool,
but a man of extraordinary simplicity
and strength of mind and feeling.
So Homer, when he called Telema
chus a fool or "silly," did not employ
tho word as a term of reproach, but
Tho court fool, or jester, was for
merly nn important person in the
households of kings and princes. His
influence over his master was consid
erable, and many clever sayings of
fools are still iu existence.
Charles the Simple had a joste
named Jean, who one morning tried
his master's nerves by rushing into
his room with the exclamation: "Oh.
sire, such news! Four thousand men
have risen in tho city !"
"What!" cried tho startled king.
"With what intention have they
"Well," replied the jester, "prob
ably with the intention of lying down

Science explains tho phenomenon
of red hair thus: "Itiscaused by asu
lerabundance of iron in the blood.
This it is that imparts the vigor, the
elasticity, tho great vitality, the over
flowing, thoroughly healthy animal
life which runs riot through the
veins of the ruddy haired, and this
strong animal life is what renders
them moro intense in all their emo
tions than their more languid fellow
creatures. The excess of iron is also
the cause of freckles on the peculiarly
clear, white skin which always ac
companies red hair. This skin is ab
normally sensitive to the action of
the sun's rays, which not only bring
out the little brown spots in abun
dance, but also burn like a mustard
plaster, producing a queer, creepy
sensation, at if tho skin was wrin
kling up." -Analyst.
What Are We Coming To?
The following is printed "for true
in a London journal:
Th house of a well known lady
novelist was the other day observed
to be shrouded in the gloom of drawn
curtains and lowered blinds. Sym
pathetic friends presently called to
inquire what family affliction had
taken place. They were admitted
into the darkened drawing room,
where, clad in deep mourning and
holding a clean tocket handkerchief
in her hand, tho lady novelist sat,
weeping, upon the couch. A sympa
thetic and inquiring murmur from
the visitors elicited a fresh burst of
tears as the lady sobbed forth: "Af
fliction? Yes, I should think so. My
hero is just dead !"

Lalmr is misunderstood and even

fact that all should work without
any exception. Having admitted that
work is a law of life, it is impossible
to find any pretext by which a man
may l exemot from it. Ho who
will not lalnir in the spirit of this su

In a well organized society he who is

A strong room in a bank is an apart

a good deal of caroand ingenuity are
expended. It is designed to givo so

firebricks, in tho insido a lining of

of tho structure are imbedded. The

Trading In riitiiKonia.
It is a lucky thing for the natives
of southern Bat agoni: that the navi
gation of the Straits of Magellan is
dangerous. Vessels often anchor in
the straits for the night on this ac
count, and this gives tho crooked
legged natives a chance to come out
in their canoes and trade with tho
ship's company. The chief articles
offered by tho natives are furs of va
rious kinds, especially of the sea ot
