    A Symptom ofCerebral flletilnjrJtl.
In a pnper on the tlmi-nosis of tnler-
culnr meuinitia, Dr. Skeer, of Chicago,
makes an interesting statement in re-'
j: gard to a symptom of the disease. This
j.-symptom is "a email circle which forma
m me ma iionr fr mid completely but-
I rouuuing: the ' pupillary margin. as
first, it is very indistinct, and resem
! bles a wreath of white clouds, the eilge
of which extends at first to the free
border of the iris. In from twelve to
: thirty-six hours the whole margin of the
iris will be involved, having become of
! a yellowish or whitish brown color, and
appearing irregular, thickened and
i somewhat granulated." According to
j Dr. Skeer, when in a case of cerebral
I meningitis the wreaths of white clouds

nosis is settled bej'oud a doubt.

A Ancient Souvenir.
I saw a queer object in the window of
a William street store last week. It was
a barnacle-covered vase about two feet
high, and though of an antique and
ancient pattern, would not of itself at
tract more than a passing glance. Upon
two cards, which were placed near it,
Hi history was told in English and
Greek. The vase had been fonud at the
bottom of the straits of Salimis, where
the naval battle was fought between
Themistocles, admiral of Greece, and
Xerxes, king of Persia, 400 years before
Christ. The poor sponge diver who
found the relic received a slight reward
for his tronble, and the vase was shipped
to New York. Who knows but that it
may bo a- reminiscence of tho great
battle. New York Graphic.

Aunt Janes Only ...Offer.
The three Misses Tibbs were, without
Joubt, in a fever of delight. Simply an
event was about to happen, which,
though it may more than onca in a
woman's life, on its first happening ia
especially fraught with excitement.
One of the Misses Tibbs, the eldest,
Jennie, a very pretty blonde of twenty
two, was about to be married, and nat-
nrallv the talk and thought all ran to
matters matrimonial.
Tiia three Misses TiDbs were very
busy, intensely so, not really making
up tho trousseau, for that important
matter had been intrusted to the hands
of Madame Lollipop, the eminent mod
Lste of Fifth avenue and Twenty-third
street, but in evolving the hundred lit-
tie nothings that are supposed to apper
tain to a wedding, and that must, in
the majority of cases, emanate from the
home circle or near it.
At this employment the three misses
were busy, assisted by their Aunt J ane,
who. as far as a surname went, might
as well have had none, for Aunt Jane
ah a was to evervbodv. even those who
could not even claim a ninety-ninth cous
inship.though reallv, Aunt Jane's name
was Hopkinson.
The three girls Jennie, the eldest,
named after her aunt; Josephine, the
second, aged twenty, named after her
Uncle Joseph, and Maud, the "baby,"
acred sixteen, and named after nobody,
had often discussed Aunt Jane's charm-
in e Qualities and how pretty she must
once have been, but it had never occur
rei to them to think of why Aunt Jane,
ntm of. kha arra rf fifty, remained a
maiten witu no apparent aspirations
. , a1i tiat condition. But
toward changing that
now. brought forth bp what was soon to
happen to one of the trio, everything
that bore upon the subject came promi
nently forward, and every acquaintance
of tho femalo -nersuasion became sud
iuct to discussion.
"Do vou know" said Josio, "what
was the reason that Tillie Smith did not
marrv John Penn ?"
"Noiw was Jennie's response. "I've
alwavs wondered, but never knew.
"I'll tell you. It was because when
John went off, as he did after his en
gagement, to Chicago on business, and,
of course, had to write Tillie letters, for
the first time she discovered that not
onlv be did not write good grammar
but did not know how to use the capital
letter, and so she broke off the engage
ment. You know Tillie is very partic
nlar and teaches in a public school.
"Whv. how absurd !" said Jennie. "I
don't think mv Tom is perfect in his
letters, but Hove 'em, and I'm as clad
to get 'em as though they were clas- cal
ly correct. I 'think it was a forfnnate
e.rvi-e fnr 1Tr. Penn." '
"So do I," said Maud. Till never
put on such nonsensical ah3 a:) that
with anvbody. You know I'm tho in
fantileso vou all say to thinlyjf get- J
ting married, ana x, tannic s myself,
buUL can't help it if I don't like every
body that likes irrg.- J2Vy you know,
you wanted me to explain why it
was that I wouldn't come down
stairs the other evening, when young
Charley Keeler called. Well, I'll tell
you. It was because when he came
list Wednesday evening, just a week
ago to-day, he leaned back in his chair
against the wall, over in that corner,
and he left that grease spot that you
see there from the back of his head.
Now, girls, even if I was ten years old
er, I wouldn't want anybody coming to
seo me that greased his hair so as to
leave a spot on the new wallpaper.
"Well, I don't know, Maudie, but
what vou may be right, " said Jennie,
thoughtfully, "but I don't think I
would send my Tom away for that. I'd
try and clean the spot, and if I couldn't
I'd show it to him, and tell him he
must be careful the next time."
"Aunt Jane," said Jennie, impatient
ly, as if the idea had just reached her,
"how was it that you never married?"
"Perhaps it was because I had no of
fer," said the old maid with a smile.
"Oh, that's impossible, " said the three
Misses Tibbs in chorus.
"Why impossible, my dear girls?
Everything is possible," replied Miss
Hopkinson gravely.
"Yes, auntie, but I know that you had
everything attractive about you to draw
the best of offers. Mamma says that
you were one of the most charming
girls she ever knew."
"Your mamma, my dear, is very kind,
but you must remember that she speaks
with the prejudice of a sister, and be
sides that a woman does not look upon
these things with the eyes of a man."
"Oh, but, auntie, I know for myself.
I can see how very pretty you have
been, and I can see that you havo not
lost it yet. One can grow gracefully
old, and keep all their good looks to
those who love them, even though they
be a little shaded by age."
"Yes !" put in Josephine, "and there's
one thing ordained by Provicence on
that point, which is that we do not see
those we are with every day getting
old. We never notice age creeping on
them unless our attention is particularly
called to it."
"I think that may be so in some
cases," said Aunt Jane, smiling, "but
it could hardly be, girls, in your cases
with me. I havo watched you from the
cradle np. and could almost count
every day. It may hold good with
those who are about the samo acre as
yourself. Now, I confess that I" have
never thought of age as regards your
mother, and yet I am seven years older
than she is."
"Oh, no; mamma is just as voung and
beautiful as ever," said "The Baby,"
enthusiastically, "and I remember her
for twelve years. No. I think we no
tice the advances of age upon ourselves
more than we do on others. I know
that I think of it every day I look in
tho glass and recoguize that I am get
ting old."
. They all laughed at this, and Maud
had to laugh a little herself, but she
turned it off with :
"Well, this isn't what we were talk
ing about, girls. Jennie you Just asked
auntie how it was that she never got
married. Let's hear about that."
"Well girls, " said Aunt Jane slowly,
"that seems an unanswerable -question,
but I'll try to answer it. j.aps it
was upon the same principtx . iat some
men never get rich no matter how much
they try, it is so ordained that they
shall always be poor, while others reach
wealth and honors, not only without ef
fort, but with positively everything
against them."
"Well, I don't think I made any very
great e3brt to get my, Tom," said Jenny
thoughtfully, ", when I come
to think of H, I don't thiukhehas asked
me right out. . I believe it was under
stood between us perfectly before any
thing was said on tho subject, and
vhen we did talk about it I took it as a
matter of course."
I believe that is tho way ia a majori
ty of cases," said Aunt Jane, laughing,
"and this mythical idea of popping -the
question is somethuig that very rarely
occurs. As Jenny says, its all under
stood without it. " Now, for myself, I've
been the same as engaged three or four
times, and yot I never received but one
formal offer in mv life.
"Oh! tellns all about it, auntie, said
the three Misses Tibbs, hitching their
chairs nr a little closer to Aunt Jane.
"Well, it's hardly anyunng to leu,
girls, but if vou desire to bear it, j.
must tell it. But to explain what I say
about being engaged without receiving
a formal offer, 1 will cite a case or two
within my own experience. My first
was when I was seventeen, and, as I
then thought, as much a woman as I
urn now. I waa snendincr the summer
on the seashore with my Aunt Margar
et, and Aunt Margaret, having made a
successful marriage, iinanciallv speak
ing, herself, was intent on having her
neices uo ue rams, lor sue liau no
children, and fo every summer she took
to fashionable places, and every winter
to all tho balls and parties.
This particular summer she chose
the Reashore, and there T met Harvey
Gray, who, though seven years my
- - -i m
senior, ana wno naa neen traveling ior
three vears in Europe, was, really, as
innocent as a child. We fell in love, as
it i3 called, at first sight, and were in
fatuated with each other. Of course,
out of this grew tho usual sweet com
munings, moonlight walks, boating,
euitaring. singing, and ail the inevit
able things appertaining to lovers, ever
Since the world began. . c
"Aunt Margaret recognized tho mat
ter. and it suited her too well, as I
afterward thought. Gray was rich,
hiarhlv connected, handsome and of ir
reproachable character, therefore a very
desirable match. I say it all suited
Aunt Margaret too well, and 111 ex
plain that by saying that while men are
alwavs readv to take advantage of being
left by the parents and guardians of the
girl they are in love with alone and
uninterrupted in their wooingr, yet
there is such a thing as overdoing this,
so as to rather turn him against it. He
would really be bet 3r pleased witli a
little opposition. I think Aunt Margar
et slightly overdid it.
"However, the summer passed, . and
we were happy, and I felt as much en
gaged to Harvey as though the actual
words had been spoken, and I am as
sure as we can bo of anything in this
life that Harvey felt the same way. In
fact we talked freelv of what we were
to do in the future, and there was nothr
ins: wanting but the setting of the day,
when Aunt Margaret stepped in, which
I have always thought was unfortunate,
to sav the least of it, for I am a decided
advocate of early marriages.' Well, we
were to start 'for tho city early tho next
mornimr, and for what occurred the
previous evening I am indebted to Aunt
Margaret's own recital. Iwas detained
in mv own room packing, but was to
meet Harvey on tho piazza at 9 o'clock
He was to go With us to the city the
t-,A-t rl0"0, ?. l 7 left him after dinner
promenading with my aunt, w nen j.
returned at 9 o'clock, he was not there,
and Aunt Margaret made his apologies
by saying that he was indisposed and
had retired. The next day when he
did not appear to go with us to the city,
Aunt Margaret was forced to an expla
nation. She had asked Harvey what
hi3 intentions were, and he had re
volted. "I thought my heart was broken, but
Aunt Margaret said she had done right,
and that the man who after three
months of unlimited courtship, as she
looked upon it, that could not explain
his intentions had better be got rid of.
I never saw Harvey again until he was
married, three years after, when we
met, as they say in France, with elevat
ed politeness. He married one of the
great belles of society, and in two years
he was living a bachelor life in Paris
and she was living in New York City.
Perhaps Aunt Margaret was in the
right; I do not know."
But the three Misses Tibbs declared
that Aunt Margaret was not Bight, but
emphatically wrong, and after discuss
ing the matter a while Maud said :
"But, auntie, you haven't told us
about the one real offer that you did
have. "
"Very well," said Aunt Jane, laugh
ing, "I'll bkip the offers I didn't have
then, and tell of the ones I did have, if
you say e: You all remember Under
wood, of course. Your grandfather
bought it, Jennie, when you were a baby,
and we all spent our summer's there.
That's twenty years ago, and I was

life of old. maidism.
"One day I had taken a fancy to go
into the kitchen and make a cake. I
did thia because everybody' except the
hired wien and one of the chamber
maids had gone to the city, even the
cook being away for the day, the hired
men off in the fields, and Mary and ' I
the only occupants of the house. I had
begun my cake-making when I discov
ered the want of certain spices, and
Mary volunteered to go to the store to
obtain them. She had hardly got away
when I heard a step, and raised my eyes
to see a man standing at the kitchen
door, which opened into the path that
led to the road.
"My heart was in my throat in an in
stant, and I remembered" how utterly
alone I was. We were not afraid of
tramps in those days as now, but 1
think a better specimen of that genus I
never saw. He was dilapidation itself ,
and as I looked at him in a dazed,
frightened way, he whined :
" 'Lady, I'm very hungry. Won't
you give me something to eat V
"As scared as I was I reasoned. 'I
would feed him and talk to him until
Mary returned, and I would theff send
her for the hired men, and so K bade
him come in and I sat before iim the
contents of tha kitchen pantry with an
abundance of warm coffee ifrom the
stove. ' He ate like one whet had not
seen food for over a month, Mnd as he
ate poured forth the tale of lUrroubles.
He had been a prosperous l-maker,
having at one time had as rfusi as $400

he had been ruined by a bsL e, who
would not bear with his hi loibles,
one of which was his convivositii-. and
so she left him, and he becan0
"Of course I sympathized wt li him
in his troubles, "and under tifts the
stimulation of the coffee, as soon as he
could eat no more, I found him on his
kneeabefore me, pouring out his ad
miration. Oh, if he had but such o
wife as I was, what a different man .he
might have been. A millionaire, 'r-
haps. -Oh, will that girl, Mary, Vr
return? irat it vras not too late yet;
His wife was not dead, but he was not'
afraid of her. Would I marry him ?
"I don't know how: 1 found word,.
m my fright uut x saw that 1 must
temporize, and -1 told him that the
offer was too sudden, that 1 was un
able to .decide at once; that at any
moment my father or brothers i tight
come down stairs, and I would rather
keep it a secret from' them. If he
would go away now and return the
next day at the same hour he should
have mv answer. He promised he
would, and very candidly confessed
that he did not know where he should
sleep that night, whereat I took out my
purse and gave him what money I had,
about two dollars, and lie departed, and
that's the only direct offer, girls, I have
ever received in my life."
"Oh, Auntie" went up in chorus
from the three girls. "How terrible !
Did he comeback?"
"Oh no I I never saw him again, and
as I did not know, his name, you know,
girls, I could not hunt him np. When
Mary came back she found me stretched
upon the kitcnen noor, wnere l naa
chosen to drop in a faint, and alter sne
had brought me back to life she wanted
to send one of the hired men after my
visitor, but I refused to allow her, for
what had the man done? Nothing!
He was civil and quiet, and had gone
away at my request, and had left it in
my power to say that I had received
one offer at least in my life."
There is no educator like experience.
It ia the stepping stone in life's
stream, and the man who does heed
its lessons slips into the creek and gets
drowned. Yes, experience is an ex
cellent teacher, although it often
charges high wages. ,
Its lessons are always valuable and
firmly fixed in the memory stamped
there by the force of circumstances.

TVhy Dr. Hawkes Declined,
Washington Post.
North Carolina probably never
produced an abler preacher than Dr.
Francis L. Hawkes, who a quarter of
a century ago was pastor of Grace
Episcopal Church, New York. Short,
thick set, swarthy, black eyed, and
black haired, he was a striking per
son age. He was not only a great
pulpit oi ator, but considered the best
reader in the New York Episcopacy.
His rather luxurious family deterred
him from accepting a bishopric,
which would have been otherwise
tendered. One day a delegation from
a Buffalo church waited upon andin
.vited him to accept a pastorate in
that city.
"Well, gentlemen, other things be
ing satisfactory, the question of ac
ceptance narrows down to a business
matter," said Dr. Hawkes. "What
salary do you offer?"
"Dr. Hawkes," said the spokes
man, "we recognize that you have a
high reputation and are willing to be
liberal. One recent pastor has receiv
ed f 2,500, but on accjjunt of your
standing we have decided to offer you
: "My good man," cried the doctor;
fasping, "do you know what salary
am receiving here?"
; "No sir."
: "I get $15,000 and this parsonage,
and as I have an expensive family I
do not see my way clear to accept
your offer."
The spokesman looked rather
sheepish, but made another essay.
"If we had known that fact, sir, we
would undoubtedly have looked else
where; but you should remember that
the work of the Lord must be done,
and as for providing for your family,
you know the story of the ravens."
, "Now, my friends," responded the
clergyman, quizzically, "I have made
the Bible my study ever since I was
28. I have read it through carefully
and prayerfully over a hundred times.
1 remember the raven, incident per
fectly, but nowhere can I find any re
ference to the Lord's providing . for
young Hawkes."

Powdered re3in is a good dressing
for a cut. Pound it until fine, and
put it in an empty clean pepper-box
with perforated top; then you can
easily sift it out on the cut, and put
a soft wloth around the injured
member, and wet it with cold water
once in a while. It will prevent in
ilammation and soreness.
Sulphur in sciatica is of marked
benefit. Use it locally. Apply the
medicament liberally to thelimb,and
keep it in place with a bandage. Sev
eral cases of rebellious sciatica cured
in thia simple way are reported.
Keep the patient in bed during the
treatment which ordinarily does not
extend more than a few hours, as the
patient becomes free of pain in six
oV ten hours.
Conditions in Town
Boys who entered upon city
will find in town severe strain, con
flict, uncertainty. It will yield the
excitement of a battle. The lads
who realize all this and go to the
city as knights in old days entered
upon a crusade hoping lor a king
dom and prepared to find a grave
will not be disappointed. The merely
sordid who really seek money, may
very likely find more of it in the
fields at home. The idle boy who
dislikes work will be most sorely dis
appointed. Industry is the law of
the city. The idler will soon be a
beggar. The severity of city labor
partly explains " city pauperism.
There is no compromise between
work and beggary in the city; there
is a good deal of room ior com
promise in the country. If a man is
content to satisfy primary wants,
he may do a great deal of resting in
the country. In the city, even these
wants may demand ten hours of
every working day in the year.

Saise the Kitchen Stote.
We have made a discovery lately,
which it seems now we ought to have
made sooner that the top of the
average kitchen stove is too little
elevated above the floor, and that
theie is in consequence a good deal
of backache and other discomfort in
flicted upon the cook because so much
of her work has to be done in a stoop
ing posture. Rather we should say,
perhaps, that we have discovered
remedy for the trouble which we have
borne for many years, and which we
hasten to make known to others in
the hope of lessening their troubles.
Our remedy is simply lifting the stove
upon a platform," which will raise it
cooking utensils, when on the
stove, within easy reach to" one
standing in an erect or nearly erect
posture. In our case this required a
platform about nine inches in depth,
and to save the trouble and expense
of procuring a carpenter to build it
we secure an empty packing box o"f
the requisite size from the grocer, at
a cost of only ten cents. Bushed over
with some staining material

How a Cat Fall.
A cat is not hurt by falling because
owing to the power it has of balanciug
itself when snrinsrinir from a height it
almost invariablv lands on its feet. The
anatomical structure of a cat's back and
snine is extremelv flexible, the muscles
of its lesrs are extraordinarily stronj
and numerous, and further it has elastic
pads or cushions consisting of a mass of
fibrous tissue and fat on all feet, seven
in each forepaw and five in each hind-
paw. When it falls from a height a cat
nearlv alwavs alights on these pads,
which, bv reason of 'their elasticity,
break the force of its fall materially. If
bv anv chance, however, a cat falls on
its back or side it is very easily mjured.

The Grand Army Reunion to be held at
Milwaukee (August 2Gth to 31st inclusive),
will, in many respects, be one o! the most
noteworthy o! commemorative events.
There will be ro lack of .distinguished
SDeakers. But the moat attractive iea
tures will be the "tie that binds" men who
have fought, starved and bled for a sacred
cause, the renewal ol old-time associa
tions, the rehearsal of war experiences
and the rekindling upon the altar or pa
triotiam of undying devotion to "one flag
and one country.'1 Veterans and their
friends will be pleased to know that from
all stations on the Chicaoo, Rock Island
& Pacific Railway on ita main line and
SOURI RlVER. the price of tickets has been
placed for this occasion at one pare for
the round trip, while children under twelve
and over five years ol age will oe cnargea
only one-half this excursion rate, or one-
quarter the regular fare lor the round
trip. Tickets will be on sale at all princi
pal stations on the Rock Island Route
August 21 to August 28, 1889, inclusive,
good for continuous passage to Milwaukee
at any time between these dates, and good
for ieturn passage leaving Milwaukee on
any date between August 27 and Sept. 5,
1889, inclusive. Holders o! such tickets
who desire to make side excursions from
Milwaukee to points beyond in anj direc
tion, can, by surrendering their return
coupon tickets for safe keeping to the joint
agent at Milwaukee, have them honored to
original starting point where ticket was
purchased (by proper indorsement), on any
date not later than Sept. 30, 1889.
