AH Frenchmen, and especialby
Frenchwomen, know how to talk when
they've nothing to sa3. This is a most
valuable accomplishment. Maiiy a

On Wct Thirty-ninth street lives the
family of Mr. B. S. DePool, a whole

sisted of his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth De
Pool and four children, the youngest of
whom was a little boy of five years of
ago. named Solomon. It was decided
a few weeks ago thatho wai old enough
to sen to school this fall, and accord
ingly on the reopening of tho public
schools la-it Mondaj- he was sent to the
one on Fortieth street. It was arranged
that a girl who attended school should
call for him ever) day eoing and com
ing therefrom. Accordingly on Mon
day morning she stopped at the house
and took tho littlo fellow to school. As
it happencd.thc class in which Solomon
was placed was disraisjed before the
one to which she belonged, and the 're
sult wae that when she called to tak
him home she found that he had al
icady left with the rest of the little
scholars. Sho hurried to Solomon's
house and tearfully inquired of his
mother if he had reached home. To
her dismay she found that he had not.
The mother, frantic with grief, when
she heard what had happensd waited
not to put on hat or wrap, but dashed
out of the house, attired as who was in a
calico dress, in search of him. She in
quired of tho neighbors if they had seen
anything of her darling boy, and being
informed that they had not she sought
for him everywhere. Her relatives
along tho street leading to the school,
and in fact every place she thought i.
possible he mightbe, wcrurisited. As a
last recourse sho went to tho station
house on Fertrtsevcnth street, between
Eighth and Ninth avenue. Sergeant
Frink who was at the desk was besoight
for intelligence of her lost child intones
so agitated that she could hardly do
scribe him or give her own name or
address. Sergeant Frink was visibly
affected by her manner and begged her
to cafm herself before he led her into
a room where thcro were a number of
lost children. Sho tried hard to do so,
rso grc4.)tas her eagerness tasec as
soon as possible if her boy was among1
the stra waifs, and had, to all appeaj-,-ances,
succeeded, when tho door was
opened for her loading into the room
where the little ones were. But the
moment she caught sight of her beloved
boy, who was, indeed, among those
preseat, having been found wandering
in Fifty-ninth street, she lost all con
trol of herself. Shrieking: " My child,
my child!" sho ran to moot him and
clasped him to her breast, almost
smothering him with kisses arid 'weep
ing with ' joy. Sergeant Frink asked
her if she had not better wait a few
minutes at the station house 'until she
had regained her composure, but she
answered that she wished to reach homo
before her husband should return from
business. Sho therefore took little
Solomon by tho hand and walked down
Forty-seventh street toward Ninth av

she was seen to clasp her hand to her

of intense suffering, her complexion

made to bring her to b3 tho b-stand-crs,
who knew not that she had died
almost before touching the sidewalk,
and that sho was now bo3ond tho reach
of human aid. Finding their endeav
ors to restore animation unavailing and
fruitless, word was dispatched to the
station house of what had occurred.
Sergeant Frink had the body conveyed,
thither, and information of the event
was sent to Mrs. DcPool's residence.
Shortly aftorward Mr. DePool and his
son reached home only to find that 'tho

Tiiadc. and when ono is made, like vac

whether it amounts to anything or not.
a new discover that. the djicorcrcr
will swear b is a hi" thing. "ThrsThifa
delphia cloctbr has discovered that rheu
matism is. the direct result of cold.fuet.
There is no discovcrv that has ever been j
made in tho human anatomy that stands
to reason an3 more, than this.
Many thousands of men are going
around crippled and bent with rheuma
tism and suffering untold agonies and
they have never known what caused
their bones to ache. Of course they
knew that their wives had cold feet but
they had no idea that every tinio thoso
No. 2 icicles were placed in the small
of -the back to get warm that they wero
sowing the seeds of rheumatism. We
prcsumo thcro is a hundred pound-- of
male rheumatism to occr3 square "inch
of cold female foot, and tho Philadel
phia doctor should be thanked by men
6f rheumatic tendencies, as well as 'by
women of arctic pedal extremities for
his timely discover".
There is no woman who cnio3s eco
ing her husband in throes of rheumatic
pains, and now that the3 know that
their cold feet havo brought about so
much suffering, wo trust thc3 will try
and lead a different life. Of course, wo
do not expect an3 woman h goinz to
bed and leave her feet out on the floor,
or under a coal stove. This could not
be expected. But thoy can adopt some
method to soften the rigors of a hard
winter. They can paint their Jcct-a
nice warm color, or havoasnnimerknn
sct painted on tho instep, or a fircplaco
on the bottom of their feet. Anything
that will make their feet seem" warm
will be a relief to their rheumatic hus
bands. A pair of zinc over-shoes to
wear in bed would help some verv cold
feet several degrees. Men are too
valuable to be cripplod up with rheu
matism, just for the temporary comfort
thoy can confer upon their "wives b'
allowing the small of their backs to bo
used in lieu of a grate lire. Wc trust
that the cold-footed portion of our fe
male population will look at this maMcr
in its true light, and. if ncccssar3 leavo
their feet iu the porter's room at bed
time, and get a check for them. l'cck?$

Caaght In His Own Trap.
A story quite as good for being true
is told of two medical students, the
ono a very large and the other a very
small person, who were room-mates and
bed-fellows: On acertain warm night
the big man, who was on the inner
side, awoke to the consciousness that
he was being crowded to the. wall, his
companion having taken a good-sized
reservation in the middle of the bed,
B- way of punishing the encroachment
with neatness and dispatch, he gently
adjusted his soles and ousted the little
fellow so effectually as, to land h:m on
tho carpet The "ejected ono showed
no sign of resentment

But tho evaporation from the soil in
our American climate whero hcati are
intense nnd drying winds blow almost
continualby from the interior of tho
continent is so great that the soil soon
loses a surplus of water that mav han-
1 pen from occasional heavy rains, and
tho danger wo experience is rather
from a deficiency than an excess of
moisture. It is not safe in this respe?t
to re3' upon English authorities ami
opinions. In that moist climate, al
though the ra'n-fall is not much more
than half as much as ours, tho soil is
nearly a' ways filled to overflowing bo
cause" of the" very in idnquatc amount of
evaporation. There the air is tilled
with moisture for weeks at a time, .-o
that a constant drizzle is falling, even
when the almost daily showers havo an

cannot wisel- follow the ad vice or imitate
the examples given in English books or

not from personal knowledge of our cir

Feed H. Cora. Stalks
I have-aever, until bow. been able to
account for. tho different values, variou"
practical pcoplo put upon corn stalks.
True, there is a great difference in dif
ferent klntls-of "com, in the way itis fell,
etc., bafcafter all tho great variation in
value is caused b its dryness. That
which is cured somewhat moist even if
more or loss moldy, is greatly preferred
by the cattle, to hard, dry, brittle stuff,
which has lost almost all its flavor, and
doubtless a good deal of its nutritive
qualities. Simply sprinkling the por
tions of stalks to be fed next, so that
thev will have a few hours to absorb the
water, helps a great deal, but still it is 1
not at all like having uaiurally moist
fodder. If the water used to soften the
stalks is salted, and tlavorcd with a few
handfuls of bran, this will make a great
difference. No doubt the best plan to
feed corn fodder is to cut and steam it
with such additions of roots, "bran, etc.,
as are desirable. Few can do this;
many, however, follow what is the next
best plan to cut the corn fodder, and
mix it with bran, then to pour scalding
water in abundance over the mass, and
cover it up with rubber sheets, rubber
army blankets, er place it in a-Box with
a close lid. .so that it shall have a good,
soaking and "sweating." In whatever
way it is fed, it should be cut the finer
the' better; bat even if it be cut in foot
lengths, every farmer will find his ac
count for it A large part of dry-fed
stalks is rejected, and gets into the
manare. where it is a trreat nuisance.
