"Doo, I ain't got no mouey, but if a

send it in when tho roads git broke."

I set to work to keep an exnot account of
her expenditures, balancing her books
regularly ouco a month. Ono of ber
earliest purchases was an ico ticket for
, thp season. It cost, I believe, $10.
A mouth later, in making up ber co
conuts, it occurred to her that that $10
i should bo divided proportionately among
tho several months mentioned on tbo
ticket fu order to giro to each day's ao
count only tho amount of mouey actual
ly expended on that day. Also sho
wished to calculate and set down tho
number of pounds of ico nsed each day.
The problem had several ramifications
which I have forgotten, but, at unyrhtu,
it was exceedingly difficult, nud tbo
housewife covered sheet after sheet of
paper with her calculation. Tbo or?
rival of her husband found tier dishovol

" What in tho world is tbo matter?'
ho asked. Tho wife explained.
"Well, cau't you get nuy answer

Inaerurte I.fp Year.
The present year la. ns la well known.
a leap year, says London Echo, and ad
cording to the arogcrlnn, correcting
tho Julian rule of the calendar, it will
be the laBt leap year for right ycaM, or
until the year 1004. The Gregorian
rule, however, though n great Improve
ment on tho Julian and assimilating on
the average the length pf the caleniar
year much more nearly to that of tbo
true year, is not perfect. By It a leap
year 1b dropped at tho end of three Cen
turies out of four, fo that nny year di
visible by 100 without romnindor Is not
a leap year unless It la nlso divisible by
00; tbUB. 1900 will not bo a leap vear:
2000 will and 2100 will not A.
moro accurate rule would be to drop'a
leap year at the end of each buccpsbIvo
period of 123 years; and, In nccordancJ
with this, n French astronomer. M.
Auric, points out that it would bo prcf
ferablo to retuln 1900 rb a leap yenr and
drop one in 1920, which Is a multlplo
(flftecn tl.-aes) of 12S. But tinkering too
frequently with established calendar
rules Is much to be deprecated; he sug
gests, therefore, to abide by the Greg
orian rule until tho year 3200 and dinp
a leap year In that year and every suc
ceeding multiple of 3200 (6100, 0COO,
etc.), which would be leap yean
according to Gregorian rule. Strictly
speaking. e,vcry Interval of 12S years
should contain 31 bissextile leap years,
Instead of tho 32 which It would by tho
Julian rule, making every fourth vear
a leap year. Now, 25 times 123 amounts
to 3,200, which number of years! Bhoilld
therefore contain 25 fewer leap years
than they would by the Julian rule; 1. ft.,
775 instead of 800. The Gregorian rnlo
puts 97 leap years In 400 years (thna
fewer than the Julian), and therefora
776 In 3,200 yearB, which Is one too
many. The suggestion, then, appeal a
to be n good ono. but It obviously will
not be poBlsblo for this generation or
many future generations) to decide up
on Its adoption. For the present
will condole with those who t-hull bo
born on the 29th of February next On
their having no birthday for disht
years, as there will be no other 29th of
February until 1904, except Jn Hussta,
which still adheres to U Julian calen
dar. Fatnlltte from LlRhtnlnff.

causes are assigned, such aa the em
