Sources of Light bulled IMioapliores.
Sailors upon the ocean sometimes see
at night pale, yellow gleams of light in
the water. A firefly or glow worm im
prisoned under a glnss will show, in the
dark, bright spots of light on his body,
i A piece of salted fish or a chip of de
cayed wood will sometimes give a pale
cold light in t he night. Then there are
certain chemicals like phosphorous and
compounds of sulphnr, lime, strontium
and barium, if placed in the sunlight in
glass vessels and then taken into the
dark, will give out dull colored lights.
All these the drops of fire in the sea,
ithe glow worm, the bit of decayed wood
and these chemicals are sources of the
light called phosphorescence.

MR. JOSEPH CHILBLUD
From the London .Truth.
Mr. Chilblud Mr. Joseph Chilblud
you will understand, not John, the
happy, good-hearted ne'er-do-well en
tered the breakfast-room on a chilly
Autumnal morning, and glanced criti
cally at tho table laid for the morning
meal. Yes, it was arranged as it
should be and as Mr. Chilblud always
expected to find it spotless cloth and
china, the coffee-urn bubbling and
steaming, the little silver spirit-stove
boiling tho water ready to re
ceive the eggs, napkins properly
folded, and finally the newspa
per, ready , cut and aired and
spread across the arm f his easy
chair. Everything being satisfactory,
Mr. Chilblud crossed over to the fire,
and his position on the hearth-rug
causing him to front a mirror, he
naturally glanced at his reflection
therein. A long, broad face,with very
neatly trimmed, whiskers, no mous
tache to hide the wide, thin lips," light,
penetrating eyes, an aquiline nose,
and carefully brushed dark hair, form
ed a tout ensemble which, to one per
son at least, was altogether pleasing,
and timt person was Joseph
Chilblud. It may be said with
truth that Mr. Chilblud entertained
a very hum opimnon or nimseii,
both physically and morally, and it is
equally true that he had grounds for
doing so. Born in a somewhat hum
ble position, he had, by steady perse
verance and determination, raised
himself Gradually until he held at the
age of 42, the post of inspector of ele
mentary schools, with a salary of be
tween 400 aud 500 per annum.
And from boyhood to manhood his
life had been exemplary, no tempta
tions having had power to move
him from the paths pf virtue.
Whether this was due to the
coldness of his disposition or to the
severe and extreme rectitude of his
conduct, it is hard to say,;but certain
it is that Mr. Joseph Chilblud of 19
Propriety Square was deemed a pat
tern in the squadruple character of
husband, lather, house-holder and in
spector. His marriage, too, has been
perfect as a stroke of business and a
proof of good taste. For the lady
whom he honored with his hand was
pretty rich and good-tempered; and
moreover she retained after seven
years of matrimony the same respect
for her husband and awe of his stu
pendous talents that she had carried
in her fluttering little heart to the
Mr. Chilblud was on the point of
opening his watch when Mrs. Chilblud
entered the room. He replaced it in
his pocket and took his seat at the
table, while his scrutinizing eye invol
untarily turned to survey his wife's
gown. Observing that it was in her
usual correct taste, he gravely depos
ited the eggs in the boiling water and
placed his watch on the table to mark
"Joseph," said Mrs. Chilblud, while
the meal was proceeding, "I wish you
would look at Ethel before you go
out; she seems a triffe feverish."
"I. suppose she has been running and
overheating herself again." said the
tleman in a voice which was a nat
ural concomitant of his whole person
lear. cold and searching. "I told
Sarah that for the next offense of the
sort she would receive her dismissal;
the children must not be permitted to
overtire themselves with exercise."
"No; it is not that;" 1 am afraid it is
Ethel's own fault. She will try to"
learn Arthur's lessons, though Dr.
Sinclair, as you know, strictly forbade
her touching a book for another year
art least. He said: "Give her plenty
of exercise and play, but no lessons
until she is 5;' and yet she knows the
whole alphabet, and can read little
words:" Mrs. UnuDlud, s face was a
mixture of dwmay and maternal
pride in her child's capacity.
"jjo you use your authority in the
matter, my dear?"
"1 endeavor to, but it is impossible
to tell how
when she picks up hsr
knowledge. And she asks me such
strange questions sometimes I scarce
ly know how to answer her."
; Mr. Chilblud pushed back his chair,
and took up his former position on
the hearthrug only with his back to
the fire this time. A little frown oi
uneasiness marred the customary se
renity oi his aspect. ' : - '
"Marian," he said1, after a length
ened pause, "we shall have to be
extremely careful with Ethel. Tho
child is nreternaturally quick, her
brain-power preponderates un
duly over the fragility of her body.
She mu3t be kept back; as bin
clair says, nothing must be allowed to
excite the activity, of the mind, but
every aid given to strengthening the
delicate little frame. How is her ap
petite now? "
"Wonderfully good; infact.asa rule,
she appears to be in very fair health
I sometimes wonder at the constant
surveillance we exercise is not as harm
ful as allowing her to learn what she
can by. herself."
k "My dear Mpriqn in a case of this
description a medical man must be the
judge; and my own opinion entirely
coincides with that expressed.
by Sinclair. Wo must not allow
Ethers intellect to be forced, or
grave consequences may ensue. With
Arthur it is entirely different. He is
of a quiet, unexcitable, somewhat
phlegmatic temperament, and will
plod steadily on without makiog a
particularly bnuiant show, i tnmic
the wisest course we can take is to
Bend Ethol into the country. It is, of
course, impossible for me to lave
London just now, so that we can not
remove the household; but we can
send the child to your sister's. The
place is extremely pleasant and
healthy, there are little ones near her
own age, she would be out of doors
the greater .part of the day, and the
food fresh milk, eggs and fruit is
highly desirable. What do you say?
Suppose y.ou write to Mrs; uoie, ana
we can talk the matter over this even
'But Joseph," interposed Mrs. Chil
blud,' anxiously, "you do not think
she is going to be ill?"
"Certainly not, answered her hus
band in his smooth, precise tone,
'only I am a great believer in the old
adage, 'Prevention is better than
cure and with a child of Ethel's cal
iber one can not be too vigilant and
careful. Now my dear, we will have
the children down; for I must go in
ten minutes. I will try and see Sin

said. Miss Burto in a kind voice, for
the boy was one of her brightest pu
oils. and ehe knew something about
his home life. He was a tall boy for
his age, a little under 7 (all the
children in Miss Burton's room were
under 7), with a face that might have
been any father's pride; such a hand

its griminess, and the thick locks oi
matted unkempt hair which fell over
"Please, teacher, I didn't mean to
go to sleep, but I wor so tired!"
"How is that?"
"I didn't go to bed till long past 12
last night, and father he woke me at
5 to light the fire, 'cos mother couldn't
get up, 'cos she ain't well."
"What kept you up so late?"
"Where was your mother?"
"Please, teacher, mother went to
the Dolphin to fetch "father, and they
didn't come out till they was turned
out, and .then father and mother had
a row, and he knocked her spinning,
and she's bad to-day, she is."
"And was there nobody to look aft
er the baby but you?"
"No,'cos the lady what lives in the
next room she's gone away, and the
baby cried so I took it and sat on the
door-step till mother come in, and
then it didn't stop. Father said he'd
chuck it out o' window if mother didn't
quiet its row."
The boy spoke in a quiet, matter-of-
fact tone. Why not? He was used to
his life; such scenes were of daily oc
currence, and if the previous night's,
experiences had been a trifle worse
than usual, there was one comfort to
be derived from them his mother

the teacher quietly. "I am going to

are you crying for?"
The little girl aqdftssed vouchsafed
no reply, out aitei iittie hesitation
the child who occupied the next seat
volunteered the information that
Annie Blake felt sick.
Miss Burton called the little girl
to her side. "What is the matter,
Annie? Have you had anything to
disagree with you?"
The child shook her head, bhe was
very clean ana tidily dressed, tnougu
in woetully patched garments.
"What did you have for breakfast

girl, looking up with timid eyes.
"Mother couldn t give us any this

"Yes, teacher, he's got a bad foot."
Miss Burton led the child into the
head-mistress' private room and gave
her a roll out of the bag that contained
her own lunch. "Sit down and eat
that, and if I can manage it I will go
round and see your mother after
The teacher's heart ached as she re
turned to the school-room. It was
horrible to think of a child, little
more than a baby, sent breakfastlesa
She knew well the extreme destitu
tion there was among many of the
children, for the school was situated
in a very poor neighborhood. She did
what she could to relieve the most
pressing cases in her own room, but
it was only a drop of kindness in an
ocean of distress. Many a parcel oi
old cldthes and boots she collected
among her friends and distributed to
the children, but there were some to
whom it was worse than useless to
give the children of idle, depraved
parents, who would strip every tidy
article of apparel off their own and
their children's backs and pawn them
tot a few pence, to obtain what was
more than decency or natural affec
tion to them drink.
The teacher did her best even in
these cases. , "Now, Mary," she would
say, fastening a warm petticoat on a
little girl, "tell your mother if you
come to school without this to-morrow
that 1 shall send you back. You
are tto wear it every day." Occassion
ally the , hint had the desired effect,
but hot often" '
Returning to the . school-room, Miss
Burton stood still for a moment at
the open door. The children had tak
en . advantage of her temporary ab
sence to vacate their places, and were
amusing themselves in various ways.
And wor 3e than all, at the other door,
leading from the main corridor, stood
the inspector, the man whom they all
dreaded because of his influence
in high quarters, and because of his
Cold, calculating nature," which regard
ed the maintenance of discipline as
the first law of the universe. Thert
ho he stood, his light, inquiring eyes
calmly taking in the whole scene.

May I asTc, do the children often dis
port themselxes in this manner?" -
Miss Burton colored at the sarcas
tic tone, but replied quietly: .
"It is very unusual. 1 had occasion
to take a child awap who felt ill, and
I am sorry to eee that the others have
behaved badly dnring my absence." '
' ','Hum! Perhaps it would have been
better if you had sent a monitor, in

Kindly place the children; I wish to
examine them. -That is-right.- Now,

Miss Burton once moreroused Tam

"Yes, yes," he said in his lofty but
polite voice; "one hears so many of

"But, I believe, I am almost posi

"Pardon me, but I should never get
through my duties if 1 stayed to listen
to all the stories the children bring.
The way to do the work in a place of
this kind is to go straight on, regard
less of obstacles, and, above every
thing, to discountenance chatter."
"But we are bound, in fairness, to
listen to any reasons the children may
have to account ior their absence, late
arrival, etc." objected the teacher,
with a shade of warmth, "otherwise I
should have punished a little girl just
now for crying because she had had no
food since yesterday."
"Iam really afraid, Miss' Burton,"
said Lr. Chilblud, impressively, "that
you are a little too sensitive for yout

you are enrolled as one of the workers,

"But," said the teacher, bravely.
"It is with individual cases one must

"Yes, but it is right to expect so
much from these ill-fed; ill-clothed,

Many of them bring their dinners to

assert that in this room there are
pretty well twenty chifdren with the

Win you allow me to ask you one
question, Mr. Chilblud? Would you
force your own children, who have ev

by the School Board?"
The Inspector looked at this daring
teacher much as one regards an impu
dent menial who has the effrontery to
dictate to a superior.
"The cases are not parallel, he said
icily, and then proceeded to his work
of examination. This he conducted
in a manner one would have expected
from him. Going the most round
about way to ask the simplest ques
tion, and thereby puzzling the little
brain needless, wras Mr. Chilbluq's
notion of discovering how much the
children really knew. But, to do him
justice, he could, as a rule, in spite of
his supreme egotism, form a tolerably
correct idea of how they had been
taught disciplined, although he had
never yet met with a teacher who fully
satisfied his requirements God be
School over, Miss Burton hastily
donned her walking attire, and hur
ried round to a dismal, dirty street
not a stone's throw from the school.
Quickening her way through groups of
loud-voiced, gossiping women and
miserable, squalid children playing
amid the dirty bones and garbage of
all sorts that filled the gutter, until
she reached the house where little
Annie Blake lived. Finding the child'a.
tale was perfectly true, she left with
her mother what money she could
spare, and went on hea way again.
But a sudden thought striking her as
she was nearing the top of the wretch
ed alley, she retraced her steps and
knocked at the door of a house about
half-way down. It was opened by a
thin, pale women with a baby in her
"Good faternoon, Mrs. Collier; I
just called to aak why Bobby has not
been to school to day."
"I am very sorry, miss, but I could
not get him to go."
"He wouldnot go without his boots,
and they won't hang on any longer."
"Is ytur husband still out of work? '
"Yes, miss," said the women, sadly:
"it's just over three months now since
he earned a penney."
"But you get help from the parish!"
"Not v farthing they say we must
go into the House; they will not give
out-door relief; and Jim, he's set
against taat. He can't bear the idea
of breaking up the home, poor as it is;
besides, we don't want to make pau
pers of our children."
There was quite a flash of pride in
the poor moman's white, hungry face
as she 8 poke.
"But you can not go like thisl" said
Miss Burton gently.
"Jim's got hopes of a job in a week
or two he has been half promised,
and it may lead to something con
stant. I go out washing and char
ing four days a week, so if we can only
hold out a little longer things may get
a bit brighter soon. If it wasen't for
the little ones I should not mind, but
it's hard to see them hungry and the
cupboard emDty." The mute sufftr

painful to witness than a demonstra

Miss Burton laid her hand on her
arm and said:. "Try and bear up,
Mrs. Collier: you have at least the
consolation of knowing you do your
best. As to Bobby, tell him that he
is to come to school to-morrow. I
will arrange about some new boots.
I mean we will see to it among us."
JNot waiting to hear the woman s
thanks, the teacher hurried away.

sounded like a sigh he took out his

penciled on- them.
Mrs. Chilblud bent over her work.
and there was silence, save for the
crackling of the fire and the subdued
netting oi tne timepiece.
At was a coia, cnui evening, ana the
room looked very comfortable with
its handsome furniture, rich, soft

Killing of a Great Grizzly.
The largest grizzly bear ever killed
on this coast was shot by old Trap
per Hendrix, near the source of Bat-
tie creek, in Tehama county. The
bear was famous throughout North
ern California as old "Clubfoot," and
was the terror of the Sierra. For 20
years he had seemed tobearacharm-
ed life. Many human beings and
hundreds of cattle, sheep and hogs
have fallen victims to his appetite.
Many parties started out to bag him,
but returned -without his hide. The
beast weighed when dressed .2,300
Dounds. the lanrest animal of this
species ever seen on the continent.
Hendrix feels justly proud of his
achievement, and a purse of $500
has been made up for his benefit by
the residents of eastern Tehama
county. The bear was in rather poor
condition when slam, as old age had
clogged his blood somewhat, and
time had commenced to paralyze his
former supple limbs, so that he was
not able to capture his prey. The
hunter is tanning hide, which he pro-

The Only Two Who St ood Up.

President Spence, of Grant university,
Sunday evening, have a keen sense of
humor, and, despite their ignorance,
are at times witty. It was related
that Sam Small at the end of one of
his breezy sermons requested those
of his hearers who wanted to go to
heaven to rise. Every one in the
house but one man rose. Then Sam
asked those who wanted to go to hell
to get up. A tall, lean mountaineer
rose and improving the opportunity
for a ioke, pointed a long, bony
finger at Small and said: "If pears,

only a few of the audience, knew what
Small had been preaching to them,
but every man had just enough in
telligence to appreciate the joke.
The profession above all others for
a young man now is tnat oi electri

for another century. " It offers a
young man opportunities for origi

that are afforded by no other profes-
