No ; he simply geta on in the middle of tke train , and if put off again goes farther back until at last he is put off the caboose. Then what docs he do ? Why , he simply waits for another train and tries it over. Now , if you have little troubles just bide your time and erawl back into favor. If your employer should discharge you , that is no evidence that you have no ability or that you can not succeed. It maybe the best thing in the world for you.

According to Herodotus the ancient city of Uabylon stood on a broad , level plain , and was an exact square of four teen miles each way , making the en tire circuit of the city fifty-six miles. It was protected by both a wall and a moat , the latter being broad and deep and kept constantly filled with water. But the wall was the wonder of won ders , being 93 % feet in width and an even 200 feet in height. This monster barrier of solid brass , the lintels and side pieces being in bronze. Cross walls ran along the banks of the Euphrates , each provided with twenty- five gates , which corresponded to the number of .streets running in each di rection from the river. The most re markable edifice inside the wall was the Temple of Bel , a pyramid of eight square stadia. On the summit of thi s pyramid stood a pure gold image of Bel 40 feet high , two other smaller figures of the same precious metal and a golden table 40 feet long and 15 feet wide. This wonderful city first came prominently into the history of the world in the year 747 B. C. , but since Alexander the Great it has been a ruin , the site having at one time been entirely lost. THE "DOG-FACED WOMAN. " She Lived Off X.iture In Lancaster County and .Umpired in a. Tent. Mary Alloway , an aged and eccen tric character of Mount Joy township , Pennsylvania , familiarly known in the neighborhood by the title of "Mary , the " died in dog-faced woman , lately her hovel in Eshleman's woods. She erected a tent in the woods and there lived in poverty all the year around , having only a tattered blan ket for a bed covering even in the severest winter weather. In the sum mer she subsisted off wild fruits , ber ries , nuts and roots , and for the re mainder of the year she contrived to keep soul and body together by beg ging from neighboring farmers. She roamed at will all over the re gion , accompanied by a pack of dogs as lean and gaunt as herself. Several months ago the people of the neigh borhood , who had come to regard her as a nuisance , burned her tent and had her removed to the county almshouse , but she soon escaped to the woods , erected another hovel , and there died. More Than a Match. In the straits settlements the Chinese appear to be occasionally more than a match for the Western barbarian. It is the practice of the merchants selling goods to receive pay ment in rolls of copper coin done up in paper , each roll containing 50 cents , and it has occurred to some of their customers to substitute for the rolls packages containing a piece of bar iron the exact size and weight of a roll of 48 cents. An ordinary cent is put on each end of the bar , in case of the end of the roll should be opened. One merchant , it is stated , received $40 in alleged rolls of copper , and found , on opening them , that each roll contained two cents and an iron bar. The unlucky dupe , it is added , failed to obtain Conviction from lack of suf ficient evidence. > A Girl From the Cooking : School. An editor who married a girl from a cooking club prints the following in his paper after a few years of married life : "Go stand where I have stood , go feel what I have felt , eat clammy half cooked feed , and lish and eggs that smelt. Go take what I have took , go bear what I have bore , throw tea cups at the cook , and swear as I have swore. Go live on juiceless steak , and soggy bread half baked ; at midnight lie awake , and ache as I have ached. Go gnaw with all your might on tough pieces of doughnuts and pies , and stop between each breath to pick out hairs and flies. Go do what I have done make yourself a fool ; by winning as I have won , a girl from a cooking school. " Over the Mountains.

The street IK-HIT too wide for her she danced up an alley. A gate blocked her way , but only momentarily. Through it she went and then another obstacle pre sented itself. Mrs. Emma A. I'oolo , who proved to bo no more of a stop to the heifer's onward progress than Ft. Carroll would be to a man-of-war. In a moment Mrs. 1'oole was knocked to the ground , and in the kitchen it went. There some destruction of prop erty was committed , but not enough to satisfy the heifer. The dining room was next entered where the well- known quadrupedinachinashop scene was re-enacted. The hallway was then taken in , and a lamp was knocked down , The heifer wanted to conquer higher worlds , so she went upward into a bedroom. Here , tern- porarily , repose was sought on the bed , but it fell under the animal's weight , other damage being done dur ing this occurrence. From -here , the weather being warm , her hcifership went into the bath-room and hopped into the bath tub. Mrs. I'oole then commenced calling for help : and with the assistance of a blue-coated soldier , drove the animal out and she at once sailed up Hanover street and entered another house , but did no damage.

The principle of its operation is the massage of the sound-conducting ap paratus of the ear by means of vibra tory forces. By this method , various conditions can be relieved which would not be reached by the regular modes of treatment , and which are the prin cipal causes of deafness in a very large proportion of those alllicted. The phonograph as been used for this pur pose , and although its adaptation was effected in a very comparatively crude manner , the results attained justified the belief that an instrument embody ing special improvements on the same lines would be of the utmost value. Such an instrument is the vibrometer , and so sitccessf ul has been its applica tion that man } ' persons whose deaf ness was from five to fifteen years' standing can now , through its use , hear ordinary conversation from ten to twenty feet away with their backs turned to the speaker , and others with never-ceasing noises in their cars have been completely relieved. THE GENTLE CURE. The Pretty Fable AVith AVhich He Incul cated a Moral Lesson. An Italian curewas , about making a journey. Many friends called to say good-bye , and , as had happened be fore , each gave him a paper on which was jotted down a list of things which the writer wished the traveler to pur chase for him. Only one of these friends accompanied his memorandum with the necessary money. This one friend's commission the cure carefully executed , and delivered the articles to him.
