Professor C. V. Riley, formerly state
entomologist of Missouri, anil now ento
mologist of the department of agricul
turo, created n sensation at the meeting
of the Six O dock club the other ovei
ing. Mrs. Elizabeth duly Stanton. Mis
Pl.cebe Cotizins and Hdva Lock wood
were among the ladies present. The sub
ject of discussion was sexual oualitv from
n scientific standpoint. Professor Riley
showed how the male, at first insignifi
cant and apparently a later creation, had
dove oped and grown to a position of
equality by the side of his female imrtncr;
how this had resulted from natural and
especially from sexual selection the fe
male always choosing for her companion
the handsomest and strongest; how tho
female of some species is 10.000
times larger than tho male, and
how, in other cases. ho is a
mere minute parasite, whom she
carries about as a part of her baggage;
how some female spiders are hundreds of
times larger than the males, and how my
lady Araclmid.i kills her myriads of suc
cessive husbands, beats them and flings
weii carcasses out into tho back vard ;
how, under the influence of preference,
tho males of mammals and birds havo
arisen to physical superiority to tho
femalo till tho lion is liner and stronger
than the lioness, tho bull larger than tho
cow, thepeacoc' adorned with a gorgeous
tail with which to excite tho admiration
of tho pea hen, and the turkey cock
gifted with a self important strut and
Tho inference was that whatever man
is he has been made through millions of
years of sexual preference by tho female
of his own species and tho anthropoid
and other species from which he has
sprung, and that it would be unfair for
iiim to kick down the iadder.bv which ho
has climbed. Globe-Democrat.

Slio Vv'us HioroiiRhly Satisfied.
t It takes a good deal to disturb the
equanimity of a thoroughly well ordered
mind, as the following 'incident illus
trates: Old Aunt Sally Pratt, all her life a
resident of a certain New England vil
lnge, was one day sitting by her fnvorito
window in an upper chamber of her
house. The afternoon was warm aid
Aunt Sally suddenly dropped asleep.
The window was open, and. ten minutes
later, the old lady fell forward, and. to
tho borrow of several persons who saw
her, she fell out of tho window to tho
ground below. When picked tip she
gathered herself together in an amazingly
hhort lime, glanced up at tho window anil
"Well, well; I'vo of:en set nt that
winder an' wondered how it'd feci to go
a-tumblin' out it, and now I know.
Well. well, welll Queer how things do
turn out sometimes."
Tho fact that s-lic had turned herself
out of tho window gave her no concern,
although she narrowly escaped being
killed. Detroit Free Press.
ItoiJKiirH in Culm.
The treatment of beggars in Cuba gives
them a certain individualization and
character. Evidently niot of them
quickly take place as genuine public
characters, permitted with consideration
to ask alms, and if detected in imposi
tion, are instantly subjected to severe
punishment. So those who are tolerated
aro most sympathetically treated. While
this is an odd social condition, it is still
more odd that the beggar does not be
come over bold and insolent. But the
recognized mendigo is not only permitted,
but encouraged everywhere. You will
stumblo over Iiim at tho church doors;
give him the sidewnlk on the principal
thoroughfares; see that he has a com
fortable seat in the cabin of the ferries;
walk all around him in his various forms
at tho doors of the cafe and shops; defer
to his being agreeably located in tho
parks and plazas; give him the pleasant
est corner beside your potero in the en
trada of your dwelling; and, if you are
not in a mood or condition to givo him
alms, you would bo socially damned if
you did not at least humbly respond to
his request with "Perdon a por Diosl"

Swlni-'n I'lesli us Food.
The explanation once offered, that tho
Mohair prohibition of certain animals,
especially the hog, as food, was founded
in profound hygienic wisdom, is not now
cotiFered satisfactory. Pork in good
condition is recognized to bo as healthful
food as other meats in the same condi
tion throughout tho world, and it is now
eaten with the same immunity in Syria
as in Ohio. Tho modern Israelites offer
most interesting notes to tho ethnologist
by their continued pro.ervation, in tho
midst of a high civilization, of tho re
ligious taboo of savagery. This rite has
had paramount inllucnce beyond that of
their written doctrines, in their segrega
tion from the nations in which they havo
sojourned; and, now that it is becoming
less strictly observed, there aro evidenced
of their ceasing to bo a peculiar people.
A Pioneer's Fnmly ISustict.
It was eaily in March, long ycaiv ago,
when ono of tho pioneer settlers of Ox
ford county made up his mind to move
his family from Massachusetts to that
favorite region. He had seven littlo ones
and feared they could not endure so long
a journey and tho piercing cold. How
do you think he took' caro of them? The
father obtained from a neighbor a great
basket, twelve feet by six. and four feet
high. It was fitted on an ox sled and
was mado for the purpose of transporting
grass seed. The seven little ones were
packed in straw in this basket, like so
many kittens or pigs, and made tho jour
ney bafo and warm. The basket is yet
preserved by the pioneer's descendants.
A lliirlul in Algiers.
Ono day 1 witnessed here the burial of
a child. Tho young boy was laid in the
grave wraped in a yard or two of white
cotton; a smaller hole was dug at the
bottom of the grave, and served as a coffin,
being covered with fiat slabs of stone to
prevent the earth from falling directly
on the lowly. Twenty or thirty men
stocd round in silence, the earth was
hastily replaced and temporary stones
were placed at tho head and feet: the
cushions and pieces of embroidery in
which the body lay on the donkey which
boro it to the final resting place were put
back on tho animal, and the procession
moved silently away. Tho women and
girls always come afterward to weep on
tho grave and place flowers, and es
pecially branches of myrtle. They often
upend " tho greater part of three days
round a new grave, sitting on matting
and carpets. F. A. Uridgman in Har

On tho Consolidated Exchange, especi
ally in tho shouting, gesticulating, push
ing and rollicking oil group, it is con
sidered a very bad omen to open an um
brella and raise it over tho head. Putting
up an umbreja in a board room would
seem under u7) circumstances to bo un
necessary. It is worse. It brings bad
luck. There is a skeptical wag in thu
crowd, howover. who, on dull days,
when tho brokers aro skylarking, will
raise an umbrella and run into tho trad
ing ring and hold it over as many brok
ers as ho can. They scamper like n flock
of frightened sheep.
Coming down on nn elevated railroad
train not long ago, ono of the largest
room operators on tho Stock Exchange
remarked with extreme satisfaction and
'I shall make somo monoy today."

! These were the thoughts that suggested
; themselves to a reporter the other day ks
j he contemplated "one of tho best" hurry
I ing along from door to door of a popii
: Ions tenement district. The shrill whistle
j sounded at frequent intervals denoted
his coming, and from window nnd basement-
dozens of heads protruded and
asked the one all absorbing question,
I "Anything for mof" It was amusing to
see their different expressions as they re
ceived the little envelopes. Some wero
enraptured ami kissed tho paper passion
ately, while others frowned and glanced
anxiously at the bearer. Perhaps somo
creditor demanded payment for an over
duo bill, or perhaps the scrawl meant
"You would like to know just what
kind of life this is?" remarked a carrier.
"Well, it is not quite as rosy at it appears.
It is getting better, however, every
year, and now that wo aro about to par
ticipate iu the benefits of the eight hour
law work will be more plea-ant."
The reporter had followed tho carrier
from block to block until every letter had
been delivered. Then, as ho had a few
moments to spare, tho gray coated of
ficial sat down to tell his story.
"I don't know of any business wheio
we see more of human life than ours," hn
commenced. "Tho lights and shadows
of life are pretty distinctly marked and
we see them both. Sometimes we feel
just as much pleasure in delivering a let
tor as the receiver in getting it. Some
times when an ominous black bordered
envelope falls into our hands we are sorry
that we have to deliver it. Just what
hours wo will have to work after the re
arrangement 1 do not know,'' ho said.
"At present our duties aro pretty oner
ous. In tho branch offices collectors
havo to report as early as -1 -AO o'clock in
tho morning, or five minutes before the
regular timo for starting out. Forty-live
minutes are then consumed in colk'ch.i ;
from the various boxes, after which ue
return to the station with the mail. Then
we start to face up.
"You don't know what facing up
means? Well, that is what we call sort
ing our mail and getting it in order for
our route. Facing up takes all the time
up to (i o'clock. Then we start out and
deliver the letters. Wo make a prom, t
return to the oliice. Collections have in
tho meantime been made and again we
start facing up.
"Every trip is but a repetition of the
other. Wo mako them hourly, and aro
kept constantly on tho move, until 11
o'clock. Then v o swing. This iswh.it
we call taking a rest. In other words,
there is no work for us to do until 1
o'clock in the afternoon. Then wo conic
on again and work until the darkness of
evening has fallen over the city.
"You want to know what wo sco on
tho route?" and tho letter carrier dusted
a few grains of cigar ashes from lib bag.
"Well, it is funny just what wo do see;
then again it is tad. Tho saddest of all
my experience occurred ono day when I
delivered a letter lo an old man who
lived alone iu a dilapidated houso on
Park row. It was a mourning letter,
nnd ns I handed it to him tho old man's
fingers trembled. Ho toro it open con
vulsively, and as he read the lines ho
tottered and fell into my nrms. Tho
letter was from his daughter, who lived
with her brothers iu a fashionable house
up town. It stated that her mother, the
old man's wife, was dead and would bo
buried that afternoon. Tho girl also
warned her father not to attend tho
funeral or thero would be a scene, as his
own t.ons would not permit him there.
"Ho wept as he told me his story,
There had been a quarrel, and ho had
been driven from home. Ho had never
darkened it up to that time. That day
my duties brought mo around Grace
church. I baw tho funeral cortege, but
what attracted mo most was tho figure
of tho old man outside on the sidewalk.
Ilia lips quivered with emotion as ho saw
tho casket that con! aiucd tho remains of
his wife, but he dared not Approach, llo
held a daisy in his hand, perhaps iu re
membrance of other and happier days,
and ho was still turning it idly when I
"Yes, it is a funny kind of life, half
sunshine, half clouds. Wo havo our
own troubles to worry us as well as other
people's. Wo meet all nationalities, and
hear all kinds of languages spoken. Yv'o
get letters with writing such ns none
could understand; we have to examine
and look out for log letters, and nro held
responsible for any error, Log letters
aro undirected ones. Wo are suposed
to know all our route, nd teo that it
gets to its proper destination. Well, it
is timo for mo to start, so good-by," and
tho letter carrier walked briskly away.

n baker's cart which makes its rounds in
tho country from tho nearest store, whero
it can bo procured freh tu ico u week.
