two varieties of boars can, among
other things, bo distinguished by tho
formation of thoir claws. Thoso of tho
grizzly aro longor on tho foro than on
tho hind foot. Tho claws of tho black
bear aro short, and aro of tho sumo
length on all four foot. It is difficult
to porsuado tho hunters of different
sections that tho "silver-tip," "cinna

ancestry, and that tho samo animal Is
called by different names In dlffcrant

At Queen's College, Oxford, tho first

day used to bo a red herring tiding

preparations aro mado for tho finish
ing of Lent Fat hens and pieces of
bacon aro put in tho pot by tho cotter's
wife about eight or nine o clock, but
woo to tho person who dares to touch
It before tho cock crows. Tho peas
ants rise at four o'clock on Easter
morning "to seo tho sun dance in
honor of tho resurrection." At Twick
enhnrn thoro was an ancient custom of
dividing two great cakes among tho
young people. In 1G45 Parliament,
looking upon It as a superstition, or
dered tho custom abandoned, and that
loaves of bread should bo bought with
tho money for tho poor of tho parish
Iheso woro thrown from the steeple
to bo scrambled for. In somo parts oi
England thoro is still tho custom ol
eating a gammon of bacon at Easter;
this was founded on tho abhorrence
our forefathers wished to express to
ward tho Jews for their part in the
crucifixion. Ono superstition is ex
pressed in tho following lines:
" On Kaster let your clothes be new,
Or eUo bo sure you will It rue."
A superstition long practiced on the
continent was to abstain from eating
flesh on Easter day, in order to escape
fever during the year. In Derbyshire
is a spring called "Dropping Tor."
To this young men and maidens re
sort, each with a pound of sugar in
0110 pocket and a cup in tho other.
They 1111 the cup with droppings from
tho spring, dissolvo tho sugar in it
and drink it with anticipated matri
monial results. Judging from the
quantity of sugar, tho anticipated re
sults, if realized, aro suro to bo sweet.
A yet stranger custom was onco com
mon among all classes in England nnd
still prevailed at tho beginning of the
present century. "On Easter Mon
day," says tho historian, "parties of
six or eight women surround such
pot-sons of tho opposito sex
as they happen to moot, and, with 01
without thoir consent, lift them three
times abovo their head-, shouting at
each elevation:, 'In representation of
our Saviour's resurrection.' Tho mon
in similar parties do tho same on Ens
tor Tuesday. A custom happily fallen
into disuso is that of wives beating
thoir husbands on Easter Tuesday, and
husbands thoir wives on tho day fol
lowing. Such customs, as well as that
of young couples rolling down Green
wich hill, aro proofs of tho rudo and
coarso manners which prevailed in
earlier English lifo."
Of tho decorations of "paco-e'rn's"
It is needless to speak. Every Easter,
in tho timo of Louis XV., eggs thus
embellished used to bo piled high in
pyramids on tho royal table at Ver

THE PICTURE WINDOW.
fomenting About tlie.lot Critical Stngo
In It Development.
Tho search for material ended, tho
work of construction may begin. Two
aiip'cutc copies of tho cartoon aro
first made. Ono operation suffices to
accomplish this. Tho eartoon is laid
on a largo table, and beneath it nro two
sheets of similar paper and two sheets
of ordinary black transfer paper ar
ranged alternately. Hy passing a
small revolving wheel over the out
lines of the cartoon, tho t acings aro
quickly nnd accurately made. Each
space is then numbered corresponding
ly on both tracings, and ono of them
is cut up to make patterns for tho
glass-cutter. An ingenious dissecting
instrument is used for this purpose.
It consists of a pair of double-edged
shears, which, In cutting, removes a
strip of paper just tho width of tho
load which will separate tho fragments
of glass when they aro finally bound
together. In this way each pattern is
precisely tho sizo required. When the
glass is ready to be put together in the
window, thoro is vory little coaxing to
bo dono to got it into place.
Tho picture window has now reached
tho most critical stage in its develop
ment. I ho paper patterns aro to find
suitablo counterparts in glass, and
upon tho nicety with which this sub
stitution is accomplished depends tho
oiled of tho entire work. Nothing is
loft undone that will assist tho glass
cuttor in forming correct color-judg-monts.
Throughout tho ontiro proc
ess, and hoto particularly, tho work
progresses under precisely those con
ditions that aro best calculated to
make surprises and incongruities im
possible when tho wholo shall bo com
pleted. A sheet of plain glass, tho
sizo of tho cartoon, is laid ovor tho un
directed tracing. Outlines of tho in
tended lead bands aro then painted on
tho clear glass in black linos of cc rro
sponding width. On tho model thus
prepared tho papor paitorns aro stuck
by moans of a llttlo wax. It is now
ready to bo taken to tho figure-room,
whoro it is placed directly in front of
a largo window, and the ilow work of
substituting colored glass for paper
begins. Prof. C. II. Henderson, in

ish, and thoro is only one euro for an
old fool, my boy that is, death. Or
dinary death won't euro him. oithor.
"Though thou shouldest bray him in a
mortar among wheat with a pcstlo,
yet will not his foolishness dopart
from him." Seo how awfully dead ho
has to bo killed! Smashing him only
makes him worse.
Hut now, if any or all of these slights
havo beon put upon you, liston to me,
ray tender Tolcmachus. Don't show
your soros. Oh. don't show your sores.
Thoy aro not pleasant things to look
at, nobody wants to seo them and thoy
will heal much moro rapidly and nat
urally and healthfully. If you don't
exposo them. Keep them eovorod.
Don't show them to tiny body but your
surgeon, and don't show them to him
unless you havo to. And, don't look
at them yoursolf. Lcavo thom alono
undor tho healing plasters of timo and
tho cool compresses of forgetfulness,
and you'll bo surprised some day whon
you do happen to think of thom, to
find that they havo healed by tho first
intention without a scar. Don't toll
peoplo when you aro hurt; don't toll
every body how keenly you fool
a slight when, perhaps, thoro
was no slight intended. Don't
get yoursolf snubbed by people
who never seo you, and who
don't know you nnd novor think
of you. And if you really aro hit,
ana hit hard, it belittles your manhood
and it drives away human sympathy
when you lift up your voico and howl
on tho streets. Keep quiet about it.
Don't whine; don't yell. Ono day, at
the investment of Vieksburg it was
on tho memorable 2i'd of May durin
a lull in tho desultory skirmishing
that preceded tho assault, whilo I was
lying close to tho surface of tho great
round globe which wo inhabit, and
wishing I could get a little closer to it,
wo hoard a tremendous howling and
shrieking, and down tho dusty road
from tho front camo a bluo-jackotod
skirmisher on tho trot, holding ono
hand up in the other, and tho hand ho
was holding up had no thumb on it.
It hurt like tho mischief. I have no
doubt, but it was only a thumb aftor all,
and how the follow was howling about
it. Ho was a brave man or he wouldn't
have beon whoro ho could havo lost
that thumb. Hut you would think it was
tho only thumb in tho wholo United
States army and Umt no ono olso on
tho skirmish lino had beon hit that
morning. So tho soldiers saw only
tho funny sido of tho picture, and a
porfeet chorus of howls, in vociferous
imitation of tno man's own wails,
went shrieking up from tho sarcastic
lino of tho mon who woro waiting
thoir turn to face death. In a minute
another soldier camo walking back
from tho skirmish lino. Ho was walk
ing slowly and steadily, novor a moan
foil from his compressed lips, though
thoy woro whiter than his bronzed
face, and he hold his hand against his
breast. Tho siloneo of tho death
chamber fell upon tho lino in an in
stant, as tho figuro of tho soldier
moved along the road with tho air of
a conquoror. Half a dozen men sprang
to his sido. Tenderly thoy laid him
down in tho shadow of a great oak;
his lips parted to speak a mes
sage to somo ono a thousand milos
away, and tho lino was short ono man
for tho coming assault, IIo died of his
hurt; but ho died liko a king. Oh,
my boy! don't yoll tho lungs out ol
you ovor a mashed thumb, whon only
three tiles down tho linos a soldior sa
lutes his captain boforo ho faces about
to go to tho rear with a death bullet in
his breast. You can't help getting
hurt Thoro isn't a safo place in tho
whole lino. Thoro nro cruel peoplo in
the world who lovo to wound us; thoro
aro thoughtless, heedless peoplo who
don't think; thoro aro peoplo who don't
euro, and thoro aro thick-skinned poo
plo, who are not easily hurt thom
solves. and thoy think mankind Is a
thlck-hldcd raco; in fact, tho air is
full of darts and arrows and singing
bullets all the tlmo, and it's dangor
ous to bo Mifo anywhere. Hut whon
you do get hit as hit you cortainly
will bo don't "hollor" any louder
than you havo to. Grin and bear it,
tho host you may. Thoro arc somo
peoplo so badly hurt thoy must moan;
do you forgot your own hurt in look
