Changed His Mind.
A gentleman who once served on an
Irish Jury tells an amusing story of his
experience. When the hearing was
over mid the Jury retired to their room
(o consider their verdict they found
that they stood eleven to one lti favor
of an acquittal, but the one happened
to bo a very complacent old gentleman
who rested his chin upon the head or n
thick bamboo cane ami announced de
fiantly that he was ready to stay there
is long as any or them.
The hours dragged on, evening ar
rived, and the old gentleman obstinate
ly held out. The other jurors wearily
arranged themselves to make a night of
It. From time to time the old gentle
man would contemplatively suck the
heal or the cane.
Finally he fell asleep, and the eauo
Iroppcd heavily to the floor. 'I lieu one
ol the J'lr.vnien picked It up and found,
to his .surprise, that li was nearly full
of Irish whisky. The eleven passed
the cane rottud, relieved It of Its con
tents and then awakened its slumber
lug owner. Slowly he lifted the cane
to his mouth, looked at his watch and
then arose with the announcement.
"Hoys, I'm aftlier eliangtn' me iiiolud."
Inheritance cf the Blind.
The blind chlld-tho deaf blind child
has inherited the mind of seeing and
hearing ancestors, a mind measured to
live senses. Therefore he must be In
liiieneed. even if It I'c unknown to him
.self, b. the light, color, song, which
have been transmitted through the
language he Is taught, for the chain
iK'rs of the mind are ready to receive
'hat languuuc. Thw brain f fie race
s so permeated with color Unit It dye
een the speech of the blind. Every
object I think of Is stained with the
hue that belongs to it by association
unit memory. The experience of the
deaf blind person In a world of seeing,
healing people Is like that of a sailor
on an Island when1 the Inhabitants
speak a language unknown to him,
whose life Is unlike that he has lived.
He Is one; they are many. There is no
chance of compromise. He must learn
to seo with their eyes, to hear with
their ears, to think their thoughts, to
follow their Ideals. -Helen Keller In

Sheridan's Star Actor.
When Sheridan was a maiiuir.-r he
oven indulged in such catering to the
public taste as offering to the public a
dog piece by Reynolds, entitled "The
Caravan; or, The Driver and the Dog."
Of Its first presentation It Is recorded
that Sheridan after witnessing the per
formance suddenly entered the green
room, shouting: "Where is heV Where
Is my guardian nngelV" Presuming ho
meant to congratulate the author,
Reynolds replied, "Here I ami"' "Pooh."
replied Sheridan, '-I don't mean yon; 1
raeon the dog." Later one Dlgnum,
who played In the piece, approached
Sheridan one night with woeful counte
nance, saying: "Sir, there Is no guard
ing against Illness. It Is truly lamenta
ble to stop the run of a successful play
like thb, but really" "Really what?"
cried Sheridan, Interrupting him. "I
am so unwell that I cannot go ou
longer than tonight." "Yon!" exclaimed
Sheridan. "My good fellow, you terri
fied me. I thought you were going to
say the dog was ill."

Th Lift Plant.
There Is a strange wild plant in Gua
deloupe called the "life plant." If a
leaf he broken off uud pinned by the
stem to the wall of :i warm room, each
of the angles between the curves of the
leaf margin soon throws our u number
of very white tentacles, or roots, ami
soon a tiny new plant begins to sprout
and in the course of u week or two al
tains a height of two or three Inches.
When the old leaf shrlveK the new
plant is cut olf and planted. When
carefully cultivated, the life plant pro
duces curious red and ellov blossoms.
As a plant freak It certainly is as in
teresting as the everlasting plant of
Why Go to Bad?
It scums t me we make a mistake in
prescribing special hours for going l-
bed and for getting up. Why should
we thus gorge ourselves with slumber'
Why should we not follow the exampl"
of the dog and take an occasional nup
when we have nothing better to do?
Wh. should wo go to bod whea we
don't feel sleepy? Why should v.o not
take forty winks when Inclined there

inuthod and regulailty about our som
uiferous arrangements. - Ashhy-Slerry
