Sunday afternoon. He and his younger

By accident the horn was held too close
to the flames and becoming ignited an

a little sister were standing about 40
feet away on a hay stack when the boy
received the entire load of No. 2 shot.
We were told that the girl was standing

MRS. COMER'S BEST JUDGMENT.
Like That of Others, It Occasionally
Was at Fault.
The mistakes which were plentifully
sprinkled along Mrs. Comer's career
were never regretted by any one more

said, referring to one unfortunate oc

"You see, I went to Greenville in the
morning with Mrs. Hobart, intending
to go on to Nashua; but 1 changed my
mind when the weather turned cool
and spent the day with Anna Woods,
going home at dusk. I'd forgotten my
little bag with my key in it, so I went
right over to Mrs. Hobart's.
"She'd gone down the road to Mrs.
Cole's, but I found her key behind the
left-hand blind, and went right in.
"The house was dark, but I said to
myself: 'I won't light a lamp for fear
of scaring her, a timid woman living
all alone as she does.' So I sat in the
dark till I heard her coming up the
"When she found the door was un
locked she gave a kind of a gasp; so
I stepped forward, and then, long as
I had a cold so my voice didn't sound
natural, and I was afraid 'twould
scare her, she being so timid, I put out
my hand and laid it on her arm.
"And if you'll believe me," finished
Mrs. Comer, plaintively, "she fell right
over in a faint, and cut her forehead
on the edge of the rocking chair, and
I thought I'd never bring her to!

Life's Adjusting Power.
Life seems to have a sort of adjust
ing power. We always suffer one way
or another for the wrong we do, and
unquestionably we are always reward
ed for the good actions. There is no
happiness in revenge, no joy in hatred,
no inspiration in jealousy and mean
ness. It is when we have come to a
quiet understanding of the ill-effects
of our baser sentiments that we be
come refined and grow into better,
more wholesome conditions. It is
usually the one who runs away from
the fight who is the stronger. Punish
ment will be meted out to your enemy;
it isn't for you to judge and convict.
All those matters are taken care of
just how we do not know, and after
all, it does not matter.

MICROBES IN THE SCALP.
The Latest Explanation is That Mi
crobes Cause Baldness.
Professor Unna of Hamburg, Germany
and Dr. Saboiirand of Paris, France,
share the honor of having discovered the
Baldness is not caused through a few
weeks' work of these hair microbes, b.ut
is the result of conditions brought about
by their presence. Baldness may not
occur until years after the microbes be
gan work, but it is certain to come soon
er or later. The microbes cut .off the
blood supply. They feed on the fatty
matter about the root of the hair,
through which the blood is absorbed.
Finally the fatty matter is wholly con
sumed, the food supply of the hair is
gone and it starves and finally dies.
Kesorcin is one of the most effective
germ destroyers; Beta Napthol is both

Doctors Thick in New York.
The proportion of physicians to the
general population is probably great
er in New York city than anywhere
else in the country. In the United
States, for example, taking the esti

licensed physician to every 709 per
sons; in New York state there is one
to 672, and in New York city, one to

Ruskin on Art Critics.
A. Stodart Walker tells of Ruskin
throwing a large quarto at hfs head
because he had dared to question the'
artistic excellence, in the matter of
proportion, of Michael' Angelo's "Mo
ses" in Rome. After the throwing was
over he asked: ".How often have you
seen it?" "Oh, half a dozen times,"
Stodart Walker answered with confi-
Ldence In his side as to the result of
-.such a reminder. "Good heavens,"
Ruskin cried, "no man should dare
p.to give an opinion on any work of art
unless he has seen it 'every day for
Isix months." addine after a nause.

Fat Men Always Popular.
The fat man has long been emble
matic of mirth. The lanky wight Is
used as the symbol of frostiness. This
distinction is not sound universally,
but probably has a sound basis. Pop
ular always is the Brotherhood of Cor
pulence. Cheering is the tubby gentle
man, his "round belly with good capon
lined " his globular being exuding
genially, his whole face palpitating
with the smile which in lesser men
ends at the lips, his gait perforce a
pompous waddle. A certain French
savant discourses learnedly on the pre
cise cause of this strut, and avers that
it is due to the drawing up of the dia
phragm, the shortening of the base
of the thorax, and the consequent
elongation of the waist. This sounds
profound, but perhaps the portly gait
is an inherent natural trait akin, for
instance, to the possessor's intrepidity
iu venturing into a bathing suit or
trundling through the mazes of the
waltz. Collier's Weekly.
The Miners on the Corner.
."Those men," said Sherlock Holmes,
"are colliers. You can tell it by their
The men, very clean in white shirts
and black overcoats, squatted on their
heels- on a sunny corner.
"Any other men," continued Holmes,
"would stand. They would lean against
the lamppost or the wooden Indian of
the tobacconist. But these men, in the
low galleries, or tunnels, of coal mines,
for lack of space must work seated on
their heels squatting, as we say. And
this position, which would become a
torture to you or me in five minutes, is
to them, from long usage, comfortable
and customary. It is their favorite po
sition at all times.
'Hence, when you see men Idling on
their heels on the street corners you
can always set them down as miners.
If they are bow-legged the case against
them is doubly strong."
