COUNTRY BOYS, THINK TWICE
Should Ask rhemselvet What Is Real
ly to Be Gained by Plunging
Into City Life.
Before making a plunge Into oily
life, country boys should ask them
selves what Is really to be gained bv
it. Perhaps in their quiet, rural home
some stray advertisement has reached
them, promising to young men high
salaries for light work.
Hundreds of advertisements are
framed for the special purpose of de
reiving the unwary. They accomplish
their purpose, however, and a large
number of young men rush up to the
city, dazzled by the confusion of prom
A hoy from the farm answers one
of these ads. Life may have been
slow at home, but there was always
good food and In plenty, and there
was some one to care for him In the
old farm house.
When he gets to the big city he
finds that the "light work” consists In
working all day in a badly lighted and
ill smelling workshop, where scores of
other men and hoys are employed at
wages hardly high enough to keep
body and soul together.
We all know what conics next. The
boy has left home and is ashamed and
unwilling to return and he must take
the consequences and may find him
self in some cold garret, lonely, over
worked, despondent and miserable.
Better remain at home than risk the
failures which attend so many young
men who go to the city in pursuit of
high pay for light work.—Jno. Barrett.
HIS WIFE’S MITT SCHEME
Had Reason to Thank the God of Si
lence and Glory in His Self
The man who sometimes deludes
himself for about five minutes at a
time Into the UHlef that he knows
as much as his wife does felt some
what ashamed when he saw the other
women In the car who wore nice
white gloves look quizzically at his
wife’s white gloves, which were cov
ered with an extra glove that looked
like a cheesecloth baseball mitt. Sev
eral times he was on the point of al
luding to those mitts and asking her
If it wouldn’t be just as well to take
them off, but he didn’t, and after they
got to the reception he thanked the
little god of silence, because while all
the other women who had clung to
straps and door jambs had soiled
gloves by that time his wife simply
peeled off her cheesecloth mitts and
displayed Immaculate gloves which
evoked enough glances of envy to
make up for the ridicule of the trip*
“What geese those other women aie
not to protect their gloves the way 1
do when riding in a car,” said his wife
sweetly, and the man, glorying in his
former self-repression, said: "Ain’t
One of the most remarkable ciea
tures known to natural history is the
bower-bird, which builds a miniature
cabin made of small sticks and sur
rounds It with a perfectly-kept ring
or circus, composed of twigs and moss,
studded with brilliantly-colored flow
ers, fruits and insects. As the curious
ornaments become faded they are con
stantly replaced by fresh ones, so that
scientists are inclined to credit the
bird with the possession of the artis
tic sense. In these decorated play
grounds the males meet and pay their
court to the female, the bower being
used purely for purposes of recreation
and not as a nestling-place. These
birds are chiefly found in the Owen

Dust in the Eye.
If dust or other foreign substanre
blows into the eye do not rub the eye
nor endeavor to remove the irritating
intruder for a moment or so. Close
the eye, holding the lids together with
the fingers until the tear duct begins
to work, then open the eye and, un
less the dust has caught fast to the
ball, it will be washed out by the
tears. Those who ride often in open
cars or through dusty streets should
wash their eyes before retiring with
a solution of salt and water or boracic
acid and water, a teaspoon of either
the salt or the acid being added to a
glassful of water and a bit of ab
sorbent cotton or the fingers used for
Guns Cheap in Brazil,
Firearms sell at comparatively low
prices in Rio de Janeiro and other
Brazilian cities, owing to the compara
tively low duty and to the fact that
many European and American manu
facturers are reputed to sell their sur
plus products in this market at a low
margin of profit. Retail prices for all
kinds of firearms range from about 35
per cent, to 50 per cent, higher than
in the United States, while prices of
ordinary household necessities are 200
per cent, to 300 per cent, higher.

Charles Wvndham remarked to the
