PRINCE OF OFFICE BOYS."
An Editor' Guardian Who Was Worth
- His Weight in Gold.
He was an office boy worthy of a
place among heroes, albeit his lot was
cast in the newspaper office of a west
ern town, where enduring1 fame is
crowded to the wall, says the Detroit
Free Press. He occupied a place
at the foot of the editorial. stairs,' and it
was his duty to jrive warning- to the
editor when an irate visitor came with
a gun to correct an item appearing-in
the paper. With a polite bow and a
pracious smile he was wont to inform
the visitor that he would g-o and see
the editor was in, and then if the editor
concluded, from the boy's description of
the 'callor, that it was safe to see
him lie was in; otherwise he crawled
into a tire-proof safe in a back room
and waited until the danger was past
One day a man came who was particu
larly tifjly. He was a lawyer-politician
in the nciprhboring- town, and the editor
had not lilteretl the language he used
in describing his moral turpitude.
"I want to sec the editor,"' he growled,
as he started upstairs.
"Til see if he is in,' sir," smiled the
boy, innocently getting- in his way.
"Well, I gness not," exclaimed the
visitor, jfrabbing- him by the coat col
lar. "I've heard how the chump has a
way of turning people down- when he
doesn't want to see them and I won't
have it. You stay right where you are
and I'll attend to this business myself."
And he slapped the boy down hard in a
rickety chair. -
, The boy gasped, but he didn't lose his
"That's all right, mister," he said,
shoving a pad of paper and pencil at
the man, "but before you go up them
stairs won't you please write out an
ante-mortem statement for use at the

"It's a favor to me, sir," pleaded the
boy; "for the coroner gives me a dollar
apiece for 'em, and the five or six a week
I get barely supports my poor sick
mother and me," and he wiped his eyes
on his coat sleeve.
The boy's pathetic earnestness affect
ed the visitor visibly.
"Cm er cr " he hesitated, as he
started for the door, "on the whole, I
guess I'll postpone my visit until this
afternoon," and then he disappeared,
and the boy drew a long breath and

Mo Knowing; Whether the Preference Is
tho Result or Original Condition.
The causes of right-handedness' have
g-ivo;i anatomists much material for
speculation, and more than one curious
thi-ory has leen advanced to account for
the fact thtit men habitually use the right
hand in preference to the left. Some
have attempted to explain the differ
ence, on anatomical grounds, declaring
that the course of the artery to the right
arm, being more direct from the heart,
admits the blood in irreater quantity to
that member, so conducing to its su
perior strength. This, however, is as
signing cause which, on close exam in -
tion, seems inadequate, for the causes
of phenomena have often a deeper
source than the mechanism of means.
In considering- the subject the St. Louis
G lobe-Democrat thinks it should not
be forgotten that the preference for
the right hand is, save in exceptional
cases, universal; the accounts of trav
elers stating that rijrht-handedness
is as general among savage nations
as among the civilized, a fact which
goes, to indicate that- there may
be some constitu tional tendency toward,
the use of the right hand in preference
to tho left. In this connection it should
not be forgotten that there is a marked
distinction between not only the right
and left hands, but also between the
two sides of the body, the right being
larger and stronger than' the left, the
superiority extending even to vital
properties, as the left is more frequently
attacked by such diseases as paralysis.
The right foot is almost as superior to
the left as the right hand, for in the
case of dancers, not only are the more
difficult feats of agility performed by
the right, but a double amount of train
ing is required to give the left foot and
limb a degree of efficiency that will
prevent a. contrast being , seen by the
spectators. Few people walk evenly
aod the greater strength of the right
side is the cause of persons lost in the
woods traveling in a circle, always
turning to the left. These facts, with
many others that may be cited, lead to
the conclusion that nature is the guide
in the more frequent use of the right
hand, but whether the present prefer
ence is the result of an original condi
tion or of hereditary training will al
ways be an open question.

Bears' Call Is Worth Money.
A bear's gall was recently sent to a
gentleman in this city, say3 the El Paso
(Tex.) Herald, as a slight token of es
teem from an intimate and dear friend
in the country, with the suggestion that
it might possess a pecuniary, value in
the Chinese language.' Thinking that
it was intended to imply that he lacked
gall, our city gentleman threw it in the
street. Soon afterward a Chinaman
came in, and, on being interrogated,
offered one dollar for it. The work of
redeeming it by a side door occupied
one minute, and the price obtained was
two dollars. They are considered very
valuable by Chinese physicians, and are
much sought after. We now quote

supply; political gall abundant, with
