which tobacco is used by boys in the city

they had never smoked. Of ninety-six
boys from ten to twelve there were
sixty-eight smokers, and in the primary

An incident occurred a few miles
from Norristown the other day, within
Montgomery County, which fairly ri
valed in lndicrousness the imaginary

their iron wedding, and .whose friends
presented them with two hundred and

The matt rfamilias, who may be des
ignated as Mrs. Smith, is a garrulous,
good-natured lady, who retails her tri

principal grievance lately has been the
rapaciousness of a colony of rats that
took possession of the house. Figura
tively speaking, the family have had
rats for breakfast, rats for dinner, rats
for supper and rats for a night-cap at
All her friends and she has many
had heard about her rat troubles when
she gave a dinner-party. About twenty
p ople were invited. The first arrival
got out of a carriage and also took out
"My dear Mrs. Smith, how do you
do? You are much troubled with rats,
and so anxious for a good cat, that I
thought I would bring you a couple of
cats. Here they are, and the bag be
ing opened a Tom and a Tabby leaped
forth and ran around, the yard.
The second guest brought a cat. The
third brought a couple of cats. The
fourth brought a very young kitten.
The fifth brought a new family of kit
tens. The sixth brought a bag fall of
back-alley cats from Philadelphia,
whose appetites, accustomed to fat
sewer-rats, might be expected to result
in the annihilation of scrawny little
country rats in almost no time. The
seventh guest brought two quiet old fire
side cats. The eighth brought a beau
tiful Maltese. Iu short, every one of
the twenty guests brought at least one
cat and generally several.
The ho-t and hostess began to look
dubious when the tenth guest arrived.
On the fifteenth arrival they began to
wondtr which would eat most, the
guests or the cats. On- the nineteenth
they meditated killing some of the cats
to feed the other cats. On the twentieth
arrival they felt like putting some nt
poion into the food of the guests.

anybody in that "part of the country.
Why It la Superior as a Time-Keeper to
Modern Time Places.
If it were not for what may be desig
nated as meteorological changes, the
problem of the accurate measurement
of time' would be solved if we had a
heavy pendulum driven uniformly over
a small arc. But here are two "ifs.M
We will take the second of them first,
as it is more eas'ly disposed of. Pos
tulating at the outset machinery in the
train very nicely executed, and with
jeweled bearings so that it will act uni
formly, or with the least possible vari
ation, we have before us the question
of propelling it uniformly. That the
best power for a clock is weight, is be
yond dispute. The invention of the
co'l-spring came near annihilating the
race of good common clocks. "Grand
father's clock," with its wooden wheels
and other crudities, is still the superior
of the grandson's clock as a time
keeper, for "grandfather's clock" .had
the great advantage of a uniform power
sufficient arid just sufficient to propel
the clock when it was properly cleaned
and oiled! The grandson's clock has a
coiled-spring as a motive-power, hav
ing, when it is tightly wound, not less
than three t'mes the amount of power
required to drive the clock, and dimin
ishing in amount, thereby altering the
rate of the clock with each successive
hour. The grandson's clock will march
on, oiled or unoiled (and therefore usu
ally unoiled), until it comes to a prem
ature end as complete as that of the
"one-hoss shay." The "grandfather's
clock," on the other hand, which de
clined to go unless its ratiftns of oil
were doled out to it once in a year or
less by the peripatetic tinker, is good
for another century, since its bearings
have been saved from cutting them
selves away from lack of oil. The
k'tchen-clock of to-day can only be
mudo to keep respectable time by so
regulating it that the gain it makes
when tightly wound shall be offset by
the loss as it runs down. Theodore .
WiUon, in Popular Science Monthly.
A Commodity Which Did Not Flu I m
Ready Sale In Pittbnrs;h.
A rugged representation of Westmore
land County, named Leighton, chilled
the blood of a small party of gentlemen
yesterday by sidling up to where they
were standing on Smithfield street, and
calmly inquiring if they wanted to pur
chase a pair of wildcats. "Wildcats!"
remarked the gentlemen in chorus as
th(?y fell back with a vague fear that
the Wf stmorvland man might have the

"Yes, wildcats," replied the stranger,

number of the party.
"Tracked 'em into a big holler, pine

THE COPTIC CHURCH.
Interesting Description of a Religious Or
ganization Flourishing: In Egypt.
The supreme ' head of f the Coptic
Clmrch is . the Patriarch of Alexandria,
who, however, lives at Cairo. He
claims direct apostolic succession from
S'. Mark, the founder Of file Egyptian
Church, who is claimed 3 fearing been
the first patriarch, andf wla ia held in
the same reverence as' hi" accorded by
the Western Church to 8t Feter,
The other Coptic ecclesiastical orders
are bishops, arch-priests, priests, dea
cons and monks. The priests are all
expected to marry, but the patriarch
must be a celibate. He is invariably
chosen either by his predecessor or else
by lot, from among the monks of the
convent' of St Anthony. There are
twelve Coptic bishops, and the patriarch
nomi n ates the Me tropolitan of Abys
Though the Copts are remarkable
for their general detestation of all other
Christian sects, their principal tenets
assimilate with those of the Latin
Church. They acknowledge seven sac
raments, enjoin auricular confession
and extreme unction. The latter is ad
ministered not only to persons at the
point of death, but to persons who have
done meet penance after the co umis
sion of grievous sin. Evil spirits are
exorcised "with candle, with book and
wit'i bell. " In celebrating the Holy
Eucharist leavened bread is used, which
has previously been dipped in wine.
The Copts are more rigorous in their
observance of fast days. Besides every
We Inesday and Friday in the year the
Lenten fait is prolonged to fifty-five
days, during which no manner of ani
mal food is allowed not even eggs,
miik or cheese.- Some rites, however,
aPP2y De borrowed either from their
Moswi or Jewish neighbors. Thus
ciroumcis'on is deemed essential, in ad
dition to baptism by immersion.
The frequent services of the Coptic
Church are conducted in modern
Cr p ic, that is to sav, in Greek Coptic,
which, a though '.-not spoken by the
monks, is understood by them all. But
the true Coptic, the; language of the
Pharoahs, is literally a dead tongue.
Father Vansteb, who visited Siout in
1763, s!ates that he therJ had the priv
ilege of seeing the; last Copt who
understood his own language, and with
whom it was to die. Being eighty vears
old, and very deaf, he was not able to
give his visitor much useful informa
tion. Some portions : of the service,
such as the Gospel, are first raid in
Coptic and then explained in Arabic, in
order that ir might do understood by the
