At home be sat down upon the porch
again to think it out. He knew well the
character of this father and son. Hince
Joe had been old enough to assert him
self there had been antagonism between
them. The father was arbitrary in his
ideas of right, the son obstinate and in
clined to waywardneea.
Jored's relation to the family was al
most that of a son. He was to have
married Sallie, the daughter, five years
before, but she had been taken ill three
weeks before the appointed day, and died
ten days later. Her last request to Jared
had been to watch over Joe as an older
brother,, and to help to keep him from
"Father is growing old," she had said,
"and if ever you have a chance to bring
him and Joe to a good understanding do
your bet. 1 know you will do your
best, Jared even to sacrifice yourself a
little, for my sake."
The final estrangement came when Joe
declared that he intended to leave home.
He had Invented arnachincfor compress
ing sawdust into ornaments, and was
wild over his prospects of wealth.
Through the mother's influence, nlded
by Jared, who hpcd that gratitude
would touch the boy's heart, the farm
"Here are a thousand dollars," the
father had said on the morning Joe went
away. "You want to leave us, so go!
This is all tlio help you can expect from
mo. If you lose it, you must shift for
yourself. If you succeed, I shall look for
you to pay it back. I wish yon success,
bnt I don't expect it."
No sympathy was in the words or
tone, and Joe went away, feeling that
there was no love for him in his father's
Jared knew that Joe had been lacking
in his duty to his parents. He had writ
ten enthusiastically of his prosperity,
but had not offered to payback a dollar;
so tbere was at least a little reason for
the father's refusal to help.
Hut something muxt be done. This
trouble and his father's refusal would be
likely to drive Joe into recklessness and
ruin. As he sat upon his little porch, he
almost fancied he heard Sallie telling
blra that here was the opportunity she
had hoped for.

Hi voice had sunk from harsh nee to
softer tones, and as Jared, looking hi
sympathy, let him go on, ha proceeded
in words that showed that now wa the
time to touch bis heart,
"I have thought, Jared, that if fatlier

and called Joe to him:

We have often heard that shaving the
face with a razor was a bad thing) that
it injured the nerves and caused weak
eyes; that it removed the natural cover
ing front the throat and neck, and that
altogether it was thoroughly physiologi
cal, A writer in The Medical Classics
lias been looking into this matter a little
more closely. 13y the aid of A micro
scope applied to a closely shaven face he
discovered that the skin resemble it
piece of raw beef, The razor removes
not only the hair, but also1 a portion of
the cuticle. The blood vessel thus ex
posed are not visible to the naked eye,
but under the mlcroscotw each little

The nerve lips uro also unoovered And
the pores are left unprotected, making
the skin tender and unhealthy, and the
person is liable to have colds, hoarseness
and sore throat,

Hhells, as we jsipularly call them, are
grouped by naturalist under the bead
of mollusH, and in the scale of life they
represent the sixth great branch of the
animal kingdom, following the worms,
though some naturalists classify them
differoutly. The branch is divided into
classes. First we have the shells with
two valves, as the oyster, which U a

Some of these have siphons and some
have not. Then we come to the single
thellod mollusks, or gnsteropods, so
called because they are belly footed.
Then tbere are the shell-less forms, the
air breathing mollusks, as snails, and
finally the squids, or cephalopoda, or
head footed, all of which have their jie
culiarities, and are well worth special
study if the reader is interested in shells.
The oysters are the lowest forms of the
group, the humblest yet the most valu
