Again "old man Pamborn" has been
Jiued e7000 by Jud'e Deady. "Old
man Pamborn" is regarded by many
who know hint as an inoffensive old
man; but in spite cf this he may be des
perately wicked. He is evidently so
regarded by the federal officials in Pen
dleton and on the reservation. He is
guilty of one heinous offense: lis is poor.
If he was rich, and cultivated a fcij
farm, his living on tho reservation
would not perhaps be so much of a tres
pass, and his evil influence upon tile
Indians would not probably be so no
ticeable. But it really does seem singu
lar that "old man Pamborn" is the on
ly man who lias bceu living illegally
upon the reservation, and the only one
who has had a bad influence upon the
Indians for lo! these many years, or, at
least, thought worthy of prosecution.
The idea of liberty is being cous'antly
garbled, atsd by some -people is always
exalted to the seventh lieiven of absur
dity. One of the peculiar phase? it
sometimes takes is that of allow-in;; a
boy to follow his bent, to pursue those
studies that are !tteeble to hira, or
for which he supposes that he has a nat
ural aptitude. There is Si plausibility
about such palaver. Allowing boys, or
girls either, to follow the bent of thour
inclination in study is to put a premium
011 badly balanced minds and to encour
age the growth of cranks. If a boy
"hat: s figures." it simply shows that
he possesses an hereditary or acquired
weakness or defect in thai direction.
To humor that bent is to ensure a great
er distortion of his mental equipoise.
O.ic aim of education should be to se
cure evenly balanced minds, not to en-
cour:le a" manner of mental deformity.
Weak points should be strengthened,
ami precoci his points lieu in cuecK.
Fond pareuls and foolish teachers need
not fei.r that sny binldi:i; genius is thus

pleasure-loving to entertain for a mo

although he never doubts that she is in

He brings the boat up to the pier, fas
tens it, and helps her out in silence.
Then as she stands half turned from
him, he takes her hand and lifting it
to his lips says a little hoarsely:
"Good-bie," the answered low and
Not contented with this, he goes on
to make a pretty speech about "adverse

soon goes dancing over the waves to
ward the mainland, while Letty, evi

Not long alone, though, for soon an

As the form of the upper lip and in
the regions about it has largely to deal
with the feelings, pride, self-reliance,
manliness, vanity, and other qualities
that give self-control, the mustache is
more particularly connected witn the
expressions of those qualities or the re
verse. When the mustache is ragged and,
as it were, Hying hither aud thither,
there is a lack of proper self-control.
When it is straight and orderly, the
reverse is the case, other things, of
of course, taken into account.
If there is a tendency to curl at the
outer ends oi the mustache, there is a
tendency to ambition, vanity or display.
When the curl turns upward there is
geniality, combined with a love of ap
probation; when the inclination is down
ward, there is a more sedate turn of
mind not unaccompanied with gloom.
The reverse quality is well indicated
by the emmou portraits of Shakcs-

The rotsiin in Tobacco.
It smoking is really a reprehcnr.il!?
habit, the physicians who had opposed
it are largely to blame for its continu
ance, for their theories have been so
promptly disproved by experience that
men are quite right in assuming that
expert opinions on poisons are- not de
serviii" of much respect. For instance,
it has apparently been demonstrated by
laboratory experiments that there is
nicotine enough in a singla mild ciirnr
to kill a man. More thin 1,000,000 ci
gars are consumed in.Xew York every
day, bt;t who ever heard of a man dying
from the effects of a single cigar? There
is poison enough in a pound of the rout
from which ruanioca is prepared to kill
a dozen men, yet two or three ounces of
mauioca are catsn daily by each of thou
sands of children with no bad effect. It
is known, regarding this edible, that at
a certain stage of preparation heat en
tirely destroys its poisonous properties;
evidently a similar result, though not so
radical, occurs when tobacco hums, oth
erwise each smoker would die after
consuming a cigar. That some nicotine
an undoubted poison is inhaled with
tobacco suioke is quite evident, for the
physical experiences of beginners are
exactly those of persons who haye tak
en an under-dose of poison; nevertheless
the system speelily accommodates it
self to the intruder, and among veteran
and steady smokers may be found thou
sands ot the strongest and most endur
ing physiques in America, and thous
ands, too, of delicate organizations
which would at once succoiub to a poi
son as active and virulent as tobacco is
said to be.
Tho tV::lio::s Ucaitit.
An official at Washington who
lias been engaged in counting the
moiipy in the treasury vaults furn
ishes soma interesting information
about the amount and weight there
of. There are 0,000,000 in silver
iu bags, eaob containing 1,000
weighing 59 pounds and threa
ounces, so 100,000 iu silver would
pu'.l down the balance at almost
three tons, and $-1,000,000 would
be nearly 60,000 puunds, The en
tire amount of coined silver now in
the treasury vaults, it is estimated,
will weigh 543,700 pounds. A
pound of ;old coin weighs $2i0,
and $480,000 of it weighs a ton.
There ara nearly twelve tons of
gold fives, tens and twenties in the
country's strong box at the treasury.
Of the paper money, too, there is
an enormous amount. One hundred
and fifty millions of dollars in five,
two and one dollar bills. About
seven of these bills measure a yard
iu length, so that a greenback belt
that -would reach around the world
fcimost twenty times could be made
of the United States currency now
in the vaults and in circulation.
The money of course is not counted
coin by coin. The goJd and silvor
are weighed very carfuliy on the
finest and most acurately fitted
scales that were ever made. Though
1,000 pounds can be weighed at a
time, a pia placed on the balance
will tip it.
Why TJloy Hear so iVeli.
Commenting on the fact that woman
hear better than men, a saucy bachelor
discourses as follows: Doubtles nature
bus thus richly endowed woman that
.she can converse with her sex. Six
men can meet in a room aud converse
for an hour, during which time every
man will bear what is said by every
other man, for the reason that n two
aien talk at the same time. When.
however, six women meet together aud
every one talks ceaselessly at the top
of her lungs, no one not gifted with ex
ceptional powers of hearing would be
able to understand anything that might
be said. It was probably in order to
provide for just such occasions as this
that woman received better cars than
man. Had she not been thus gifted she
could never have enjnyed the society of
her sex, and would have been condemn
ed to masculine reticence.
They who are uatsrally cool, and of
a quiet turn of mind, upon wliom noth-
ing can make too powerful an impres
sion, who are not wont to be excited
either by great sorrow or by great joy,
have the best chance of liviDg long and
happy alter their manner. Preserve,
therefore, under all circumstances a
composure of mind which no happiness,
