Silly Peter. Mr. John Lea , who is a frequent contributor to Cassell's Little Folks , has a very charming turn for verses for children. A speclment , entitled "Silly Peter , " appears in the June number of that magazine : Up to the garden pathway , Down the kitchen stair. Over to the greenhouse Through the summer air , Peter roaming idly , Lazy and content. Nothing left to think of. Warbled as he went : "Where shall I go , go , go ? Up to the hills of blue ? Down where the streamlets flow ? What shall I do do do ? " All around the haystack , Through the stable door , Climbing on the manger , flipping to the floor. Out'into the farmyard ; On no purpose bent , Peter wandered idly , Singing as he went : "Where shall I go , go , go ? Up to the hills of blue ? Down where the kingcups grow ? What shall I do do do ? " And all the sunny morning , Half the afternoon Silly , silly Peter ! Lazy little tune. But I'm pleased to mention. When the shades grew long , All .the farmer's live stock Answered Peter's song : "What should we do , do , do , Had we the power- " they said , "Send little boys like you Rapidly to bed. be.d , bed. " How Mllllo Found the Calf. One night , when Jamie brought the cows home , he said there was a little calf down in the pasture with "Old Jersey. " "The.n , " said Jamie's father , "I must go right after supper and bring them both to the barn. " "Please let me go with you , papa , " cried the 3-year-old Millie. "I want to see the little calf ju&t as soon as 'I can. " So after supper Millie and her father went off , hand in hand , down the lane , past the corn field and the potato patch and the clover field , to the bluegrass - r grass pasture. There down in the hol low next to the oat-stubble field was Old Jersey quietly feeding. "Where is the little calf ? " asked Millie. "I don't know , " said her father , "we must look around and find it. " So they went about the pasture and looking into the fence corners , and into all the places where the grass grew tall ; but no calf could they find. * "Old Jersey must have hidden it , perhaps down in the swamp , " said Mil lie's father. "You and I will just drive her back there , and perhaps she will show us where it is. " So they drove Old Jersey beyond the pasture , into the swamp. But Old Jer sey only browsed among the bushes , as if to say , "My little baby is safe , and I am perfectly contented to feed down nere , if you wish me to. " It was now fast growing dark , and Millie's father said Old Jersey must be driven to the barn to be milked. "We will bring her back to the pas ture in the morning , " he said , "and by 9 that time I think she will be glad to go and see her baby-calf , and we can follow her. " Millie was disappointed , and she felt sorry , too , that the poor little calf must be left alone all night She made up her mind to get up very early next morning , so as to be ready to go with Old Jersey to the pasture. When she [ went to bed , she thought about the lit- tie calf and cried , "The little bossy Is all alone , all alone down in the swamp , " she sobbed. Then her mother came and told her the calf was probably fast asleep now , and they would find it all safe in the morning. The next morning Millie awoke very early , and before she could open her eyes , she said , "I want to go and find the little calfie ! " By the time she was dressed and had had some breakfast her father was ready to go. They went out through the barnyard and Millie's father open ed the gate to let Old Jersey go into the lane. Then Old Jersey walked away very fast , and they walked fast. too , and followed her back to the pas ture. But instead of leading them straight to her calf she only mooed a little and then began feeding on some clover 4hat grew down in the hollow , next to the oat-stubble field. "Well , daughter , " said Millie's father , "I will leave you and Old Jersey here , while I go and look though the swamp for the little calf. She must be hid den down there somewhere. I think Old Jersey doesn't mean that we shall see her. " But Millie's father was hardly out of sight when Old Jersey stopped feeding and began to moo. The mooing sound ed different from the moos she made when she came into the pasture. At the same moment Millie heard a sound off at the further end of the stubble field. She looked , and what should she see but a little red-and-white calf -gunning toward her ! When the calf reached the fence , - iran ran along to an open place where Old Jersey stood. Old Jersey had gone to that open place to wait as soon as she saw the little calf coming. It was a happy time for Millie as she watched the little bossy get its break fast of fresh milk and 'then lie down by Old Jersey's side to rest. When Millie's father came in sight half an hour later , quite discouraged his little daughter ran to meet him. "I have seen the little calfie , papa ! ' she cried. "Old Jersey called her to come just as soon as you had gone. She wasn't afraid to let me see her little calfie ! " And they went'all four , up the lane to the barn , the little red-and-white calf trotting along by Old Jersey's side , and Old Jersey keeping a sharp eye on Millie's father. Betty's Birthday lings. Betty Ellis had had a birthday partj every year she had lived , until the year of her seventh birthday. At tha time her mamma was very sick , so al thought of a party had to be given up Betty was dreadfully disappointed , bu bravely tried to make the best of it. Now Betty had a dear , dear auntie who lived at their house , and was al ways thinking and doing the most de lightful things. So when she saw how bad Betty felt she put on her best thinking-cap and soon had made up a clever plan for a birthday surprise without any party. For several days before the birthday Betty noticed that auntie looked very funny and mysterious , and she just knew something nice was going to happen. When she opened her eyes on the morning of her birthday she- saw , leaning up against the side of her bed , a large bag. It looked like the bags that ragmen use to gather rags in , and seemed to be full of something very odd in .shape. Betty jumped out of bed to look at it , and there , tied to the drawstring , was a card with her name on it. Of course she knew it was a birthday present. "But what a funny way to give one ! " she thought , as she pulled it open. Inside was just what she had longed for a new doll-carriage for her Christmas doll. At breakfast time she found under her plate a tiny bag made of pink silk. Inside , wrapped in cotton , wa # a ring with the tiniest speck of a diamond in it. How she danced about and hugged papa and auntie ! When she got ready to start for school she found , in place of her old book-satchel , a new school-bag , with a story-hook in it It was hard to have to leave that at home and put her school books in its place. Jane , the cook , gave her a calico bag to keep buttons in. She found this at noon , up in her room ; also a pretty laundry-bag from aun'ie , with six new handkerchiefs in it. And when papa came home at night he brought , instead of a box of candy , a big bag full of candies and nuts. But the nicest birthday bag of all , so Betty thought , was the one Tom gave her. Tom was the gardener's son , and a very good friend of hers. He had two of the dearest little pup pies that ever were seen , and Betty had been teasing for one ever since they were born. How surprised she was when , on her birthday , Tom came in with a horse's feed-bag in his hand , carrying it very carefully , and begged her to accept it. It seemed a queer present , but she thanked him and peeped in , and there was- the prettiest puppy , the one with the white nose. When Betty went to bed that night , with the ring on her finger , the doll- carriage at the foot of the bed and the puppy in her arms , she told auntie , in their bedtime talk , that she thought birthday bags were just exactly as nice as Christmas stockings. May W. Climer. An Amusliijr Magical Experiment. Soak a piece of thread in strong salt water , dry it , and repeat two or three times. When thoroughly dry tie one 2nd to a chandelier and on the other , ar lower end , tie a ring or some small but not too heavy article. It is now ready for the experiment Set fire to the thread , and behold the ring does not fall to the floor , nor does the thread break. The explanation is : The thread has in reality been burned , but the salt ! \rith which the thread was saturated forms a solid column , and that sup ports the ring.

Kennedy , manager of Ar mour & Co.'s Exhibit at the Trans- Mississippi Exposition at Omaha , Neb. , writes the following of 1'eruna , asa cure for that ( joinmon phase of summer ca tarrh , known as indigestion. Miss Kennedy bays : "I found the c o n t i n n a ' chrmg-e of diet incidental to eight years traveling1 com pletely upset in y digestive system. In con sulting several physicians they decided I suf fered with ca tarrh of the stomach. "Their pre scriptions did not seem to help me any , so , reading- the remarkable cures effected by the use of Peruna I decid ed totry it and soon found my self well repaid. "I have now used Peruna for about three months and feel completely re juvenated. I believe I am permanent ly cured , and do not hesitate to give unstinted praise to your great remedy , Peruna. " The caus'es of summer catarrh are first , chronic catarrh ; second , derange ments of the stomach and liver ; third , impure blood. Such being the case anyone who knows anything whatever about the operations of Peruna can understand why this remedy is a permanent cure for summer catarrh. it eradicates chronic catarrh from the system , invig orates the stomach and liver , cleanses the blood of all impurities , and there fore permanently cures by removing- cause a host of maladies peculiar to hot weather. The cause being removed the symptoms disappear of themselves. "Summer Catarrh" sent frue to any address by The Peruna Medicine Co. , Columhus , Ohio.

" Gus Munch , who was one of the Philadelphia enumerators , is in the toils of the "thirteen" supeVstition. He was sworn in as a census enumer ator on May 13 , and finished his work on June 13. His list included just 1313 names , and there were 13 iead- persons in as many houses when he called. This combination of circum stances has preyed upon his mind un til he admits having lost 13 pounds since the day he began work as an enumerator. Some one asked him the other day if he wasn't afraid he would die inside of a year. "No , I'm not afraid of that , " replied he. "What worries me is that I may only get ! 13 for my work.
