The Question so of tan 'ih.i'ka.1 m tn
whether it is healthy to keep plants in
our living rooms and sleeping rooms is
answered by Dr. J. M. Anders in a re
cent number of the Philadelphia Medical
Time. Experiments made by him show
the value of plants as natural and per-
fat "aiiinu'wM " Tl. . t
" wieo. AllO IVCntKD 1KH) 1)1
transpiration for plants having thin.
soft leaves like geraniums and lantanas
is found to be an ounce and a half ef
watery vapor per sauare foot of leaf sur
face for twelve diurnal hours of clear
weather. At this rate, a great tree like
the Washington elm at Cambridge, which
has been estimated to have 200.000
sqaare feet of surface, would exhale
seven and three-quarter tons of water in
twelve hours. The rate of transpira
tion for a house plant is at least 50 per
cent, more rapid than for one in the open
air; and it is evident that a number of
such plants must have a material in
fluence on the humidity of the air in
which they are kept. Experiments made
by means of the hygrometer show con
clusively that house plants may properly
be classed as therapeutic agents. As to
their unwholesomeness, because of giv
ing on carbonic acid gas at night, it has
been shown by experiment that it would
require twenty thrifty plants to produce
ui amuuui 0i gas equivalent louui ex
haled by one baby sleeper. A practical
application of the data gained by ex
periment is given m the carefully pre
pared formula. Given a room twenty
feet long, twelve feet high, wanned by
dry air, a dozen thrifty plants, with soft.
thin leaves, and a leaf surface of six
feet square each, would, if well watered
and so situated as to receive the direct
rays of the sun (preferably the morning
sun) for at least several hours, raise the
proportion of aqueous vapor to about
the health standard.
It is evident, then, that every house
mother can keep the air of winter rooms
moist by having thrifty plants in them,
and there is every reason to believe that
the lives of many persons who die from
pulmonary complaints - might be pre
served by this agency, at once so agreea
ble and salutary. In many instances
consumptive tendencies have apparently
been counteracted by working among
Drinking at Meals.
Drinking at meals or immediately alter
eating, is an injurious practice, no mat
ter what the character of the drink; but
drinking cold water at such times is par
ticularly so. The cold water theories of
thirty years ago have proved themselves
fallacious in many respects, and this is
one of the cases, though we admit not
the worst. How many persona, while
escaping from the evils of tea and coffee
drinks, fell into this, an equal, if not
worse error, we never can know, but
that they are to be counted by thou
sands, is undoubted rand hygienic living
and treatment is to-day Buffering because
of a prejudice justly established against
cold water, which is still, unjustly, how
ever, considered properly hygienic.
The drinking of cold water, and espe
cially ice water at, or soon after meals,
is greatly promotive of dyspepsia. It
lowers the temperature of the stomach,
arrests digestion and often produces
positive irritation, if not inflamation of
this organ not only out oi the nerve cen
ters that control the general vital opera
tions, in which case it produces a more
decided irritation and injury than either
tea or coffee. Tea and coffee, as well as
other drinks, are undesirable at meals,
because they are used to wash down
half-masticated food, and dilute the gas
trie juice; when warm thevdo not imme
diately interfere with digestion, but
when cold they do. Even hot thinks are
not as bad as cold drinks on a full
stomach. But the chief objection to tea
and coffee is because of their secondary
influence upon the nervous system,
which they excite to abnormal activity,
thereby inducing undue expenditure of
power; while cold water may cause not
only this injury, but directly arrest
digestion, and during the hot months
mav rjrostrate the vital organism
To supply fluid to carry on the vital
operations drink sufficiently of water on
risinor in the morning, an hour before
breakfast, an hour before dinner, and be
fore retiring at night, but resist all de
sire to- do so immediately after a meal.
Those who live healthfully will have lit
tle thirst. It is tbe use of salt, spices,
sugar, etc.. all of which should be avoid
ed, or an inflamed condition of the
mncous surfaces, caused by such bad
habits, that induces this condition
Fruits, crains and vegetables, properly
cooked, will supply about all the fluid
necessary; and hence drinking is, in gen
eral terms, a doubtful expediency
Self-Helping Young Women. -Mas-snchusctts
shows a larger number than
any other State of these self-helping
young women and what a splendid class
of girls they are! : Quiet, modest, self
ooised, their one aim in life is to take ad
vantage ol the opportunities for education
ami out them to good use. Their pur-
nose is as ni Dare nt in tlieir simple refined
dress, stripped of every superfluity, as if
written upon each one or their garments.
Dark, short dress, jacket and walking-hat.
This is their dress, irrespective of fash
ion, yet they look sufficiently fashion
able. Their steadfastness, their goodness,
ifivea one a sort of heart-ache, knowing
how little the world cares for such, how
hard a world it is, aud how cruelly the
manv have, in so many ways, to bear the
sins of the few.

Love and enthusiasm know no such
thing as situations without an issue.
They laugh at the impossible, and rather
than abandon hone, will do vinlanna to
reality. Many well-remembered words of
the Master, especially those in which be
had foretold his future event, could be
interpreted in the sense of a resurrection
from the tomb. Such a belief was, be
sides, so natural that the mere faith of
the disciples might have sufficed for its
production. The great prophets Enoch
and Elijah had not tasted death. The
belief was even beginning to obtain that
the patriarchs and chief men of the elder
dispensation were not really dead, and
that their bodies lay in their sepulchres,
at Hebron, still inhabited by life and by
the soul. It was certain to happen in the
case of Jesus' as it happened in the case
of all men who have arrested the atten
tion of their fellows. The world, accus
tomed to attribute them to superhuman
virtnes, cannot admit that they under
went the unjust and revolting law of
death. At the moment when Mohammed
expired, Omar quitted the teat, sword
in hand, and threatened to strike the
head off any one who dared to affirm
that the prophet ceased to live. Death
is so unreasonable a thing that when it
falls upon men of great heart or great
genius, the people refuse to believe
such an error of nature possible
Heroes do not die. For is not that true
existence which is prolonged in the
memory of those who love us. The
adored Master had for years filled the
little world of his companions with joy
and hope. Gould they consent to leave
him to moulder in the tomb? No. He
had lived too long and too intimately in
the hearts of . his followers for it not to
be affirmed after his death that he was
alive forever. Earnest. Itcnan.

A Pensioned Dog.
In the territory of New Mexico the
Legislature, by joint action, recently
pensioned a dog for noble services. In
that country there are many sheep farms,
and shepherd dogs are so well trained in
caring for the flocks of their masters
that it is their daily practice to take out
the flocks in the morning to pasture,
guard them all day, and at night return
them to the fold or corral. This work of
tbe Mexican dogs is bo common, and so
faithfully performed that it is looked up
on as a matter of course, and nothing
more than should be expected from a well
This being the case, it would appear
that the dog worthy of a pension in that
territory mnst have performed some
very marvelous feat indeed, and some
thing out of the common line of canine
achievement, and he died. He did not
save his mistress' life from the murder
ous fury of the savage, nor her child 1
from being choked by a huge black
snake, for- his master was not married,
and had no wife or babe, but led a soli
tary life in his solitary ranch in a very
solitary part of New Mexico. - i
It chanced that the dog in question,
on returning of an evening with his:
sheep to the fold, discovered that his ;
master was not stirring about but re- j
mained inside the shanty and kept very
quiet. The next evening it was the
same. The dog, when he penned up the
sheep, repaired to the shanty, smelled i
through a crack in the door his master's
presence, but the man was still quiet,
and did not breathe. The dog scratched,
barked, and even howled, but no re
sponse came from within. The door re
mained closed; no smoke rose from the
chimney to greet the early morn. But
the dog, true to his appointed duty, went
out with the sheep on the third day, and
cared for them while they cropped the
herbage on tbe hillside. But he was get
ting hungry, and that night, when he
drove the nock into their pen, the last
one to attempt to get in became the vic
tim of his appetite. This method of pro
viding for his own wants became a por
tion of the faithful dog's daily duty.
Every evening the last to try to enter the
fold was seized by him and served for
supier and breakfast, and for dinner the
following day. As stated before, the
ranch to which the dog belonged was in
a solitary part of the territory, and out
of the track of travel and social inter
course of visitation.
For two years from the time of the
master's death as ascertained by data
left by the latter the faithful dog
tended the flock committed to his charge,
and had fresh mutton for his supper
every night. The flock was not deci
mated by this Bteady dram upon its re
sources. On tbe contrary it increased in
numbers, and when, at the end of two
years from the time of the death of tbe
proprietor tbe ranch was visited and the
remains of the poor fellow found, the
dog was still at his post of duty, jealous
ly guarding his flock and driving them
to the best pasture everv dav and to the
fold at niirht. before which he slept, to
keep the wild sheep eaters of the plains at
a civil distance. . Such fidelity excited
admiration wherever the story was told,
and the Arcadian legislators of tbe terri
tory, in a fit of generosity and enthnsi
asm, at their session two years ago (they
nave biennial sessions in that happy
country) , granted a pension for life to
tbat dog, to be paid from - the state
Treaury, as a reward for his fidelity, and
no doubt as an encouragement to all
other shepherd dogs in that territory to
be good dogs and laitbiui.
Welting Lead Pencils.
The act of putting a lead pencil to the
tongue, to wet it, just before writing.
which we notice in so many people, is
one oi tbe oddities for which it is hard to
give any reason unless it began in the
days when lead pencils were poorer than
now, and was continued by example into
the next generation.
A lead pencil should never be wet. It
hardens the lead and rnins the pencil.
This fact is known to 'newspaper men
and stenographers. But nearly every
one else does wet a pencil before using
it. This fact was definitely settled by a
newspaper clerk away down East.
. .Being oi a mathematical turn oi mind.
he ascertained by actual count that of 50
persons who came into his office to write
an advertisement or church notice, 49
wet a pencil in their mouths before
using it. Now this clerk always nses
the best pencils, cherishing a good one
with something of the pride a soldier
feels in his gun or sword, and it hurts
his feelings to have his pencil spoiled.
But politeness and business considera
tions require him to loan his penoil
scores of times every dav. And often
after it had been wet until it was hard
and brittle and refused to mark, his feel
ings would overpower him.
Finally he got some cheap pencils and
sharpened them, and kept them to lend,
The first person who took np the stock
pencil was a dravman, whoso breath
smelt of onions and whiskey. He held
the point in his. mouth and soaked it for
several minutes, while he was torturing
himself in the effort to write an adver
tisement for a missing bulldog.
Then a sweet-looking young lady came
into the office, with kid gloves that but
toned half the length of her arm. She
picked up the same old pencil and press
ed it to her dainty lips preparatory to
writing an advertisement for a lost brace
let. The clerk would have stayed her
hand, even at the risk of a box of the
best pencils Faber catered, but he was
too late. -. v
. And thus that pencil passed from
mouth to mouth tor a week, it was
sucked by people of all ranks and sta
tions, and all degrees of cleanliness and
unoleanliness. But .we forbear. Surely
no one who reads this will ever again wet
a lead pencil. Minnenpolut jTibune.
Thk Curse at Woek. A sinarular
fact is noted in connection with the

inscription of which has just been de

sbakspeare s tomb, uttering a curse
upon whomsoever should rtmove the
monarch's bones. : It farther declares
that " such robbers shall leave no de-
acendents, but shall be driven from their
their country. . The Duke de Luynes
bought the sarcophagus; he and his own
son were killed in the Papai war of 1859.

: Choosing a Wife. ,
There are many men who fall in love
with women at public places of amuse
ment, parties, balls, and large social
gatherings, and who fondly imagine,
because they shine as society queens,
they can but prove delightful aa fireside
companions. - But, how different the
artificial atmosphere of a crowded assem
bly, whero you are surrounded by all
that is gay and glittering, and, under the
stimulus of a false excitement, and the
?uiet of plain, practical, every day hfe !
a the first, they can assume a character.
In the latter place you can find out
whether their charming qualities are sec
ond nature, or put on as nature demands.
A true woman is seen to best advantage
among those she loves and cares for, ia
family circle and sweet privacy of home
life. What wonder their can impress you
agreeably when all their personal charms
are heightened byfthe aid of art, and they
have every advantage in their favor a
faultless costume that invariably gives a
woman a delightful sense of inward tran
quility, the homage and admiration of
the opposite sex, the envy often of their
own, which spurs them on to make
greater efforts to please ; the dainty speech
becomes a necessary adjunct to the be
coming toilet, and they easily fall into
charming and beguiling ways that dazzle j
and attract- So fair to look upon, so
agreeable to meet, now can they be oth
erwise than what they seem in these so
cial assemblies; lovely in all womanly
attributes, guardian angels that scatter
blessings at whatsoever hearthstone they
drop down. Alas, what a wrong place to
choose a wife, for too often t'tese be-

witching partners of an idle hour, these
brilliant butterflies of society, make the
most insipid of home companions, and
you find too late that the witching grace
of voice, the beguiling manner, the daz
zling : play of wit, and the faultless
toilets were all to win public admira
tion. The feminine charms 4hat draw
you a willing captive at her feet, are im
pressed you so delightfully, and takes
off and put on at the fancy of the wearer,
the tamo as her ravishing evening
dresses and she readily takes on other
moods and manners not quite so sweet
and seductive. Having only a husband
to entertain, it is entirely unnecessary to
put forth any unusual efforts, and, as
you have taken her for better or worse,
you must make the most of your doubt
ful bargain. When your fancy is dazzled
by these pretty and showy women you
meet at such places, follow them to their
homes, seek to discover by simple means
what sort of a daughter or sister they
make, and whether their winsome ways
are part of ' themselves, and stay with
them amid more practical scenes, iearn
if they have the power to comfort and
make those net and dear happy, as well
as the gift to Bhine in brilliant society.
Note the respect they show to the wishes
and suggestions of those older and wiser;
their deference to age; their influence
over younger members of the family cir
cle. Chance in at unexpected hours, and
see if you find them, in tasteful morning
dresses, easy and graceful, as sweet and
agreeable in their quiet borne suits.
Here yon can easily discover if they have
a heart worth the effort of capturing, and
are as ready to appreciate the simple en
joyments as more brilliant pleasures
Then von ean better judge whether they
will prove household treasures and true
helpmeets, and grace equally well the
borne of splendor or, u need be, the
simple and unpretending cottage of the
poor man. Woman's sweetest mission is
to carry comfort and blessing to other
hearts. A faithful, affectionate and con
siderate dauehter makes a good wife and
A curious fact in psychology is the fa
cility with which men take oaths that
they have not the remotest intention, of
keeping, and which nobody dreams of
expecting them to observe, riot long
ago Oxford students at their matricula
tion had to swear to conform to the stat
utes of the university. Among them was
one which absolutely prohibited "the
nse ol tbe herb niootiana, or tobacco;
while another enjoined on nnder-gradu-atea
that they should always be appar
eled in garments of a dark, or "sub-fuse'
hue. in the solemn oath which is ad
ministered to the Knights of the Garter,
they are reminded that "this garter is
"never to bo forgotten or laid aside.
Even the original Knights, to whom tbe
institution was something more than we
regard it nowaday a, must each and all of
them nave repeatedly broken the vow.
There are, however, some remarkable in
cidenta of sensitiveness on the subject ot
obligations which the generality of hon
orable men regard as of no force what
ever. All Souls College, at Oxford,
was founded by Archbishop Chichele
that the Fellows of the same might pray
for the repose of the souls of those wbo
fell at Aginconrt; and not long since
there was a fellow who regularly paid
for certain masses at the little Catholic
chapels ' A Protestant himself, ha could
not comply with tbe letter of the obliga
tions imposed upon bim; but he fulfilled
its spirit. James II. by the way, when
passing through Oxford, reproached the
Jrellows for their neglect of this duty,
now much significance do statesmen ot
tbe school of "blood and iron attach to
the first sentence of every treaty between
Christian Princes "In the name of the
Most Holy and Indivisible Trinity?" It
is to be feared that treaties are not the
less denounced for these words. ' Louis
XIV, in renouncing the crown of Spain
for the .issue of his daughter-in-law.
swore "by the canons of the mass, by the
Holy Gospels, and by the Cross of
Christ " This oath he did not scruple to
break a few years later, and yet he was a
devout man according to his rights.
Jove was said to laugh at the perjuries of
lovers; bat these are trifling compared
to these of diplomatists.
