"Hero they como "
Tijjspeaker as a Lexington street
stor.epeper. Two young women,
with jaunty airs and good clothes,
swept by the perfumery counter.
There vas a sort of mournful tono to
the expression of the proprietor's face
which was astonishing to behold. As
most storekeepers would bail the
coming of the bright-faced girls with
joy ahd pleasant anticipations, the
remark; called lor an oxpianauon.
"Just watch them," he said, in
answer to an inquiry. That is easy
task enough. They are still at tho
perfumery counter." They chat and
they smile and look appealingly at
tho clerk. They fondle the bottles.
AU. out comes a Bioppur ; over uys u
vial ; handkerchiefs and muffs catch
the sweet scented drops tnat duddio
out. Then a merry word and away
they go. Perfumed 'without money
and without price.
"The old, old story." Thus re
marked the storekeeper. "The young
women lxavo regular free cologno
routes, just as every old toper has liis
free-lunch route. And the lunch tray
isn't worked with any moro thorough
ness, either. It was unusual a year
aco for a customer to come in and
waste time over the perfumery bot
tles; they generally knew what they
wanted and got it. Now the strange
thing is when we don't have a hun
dred feminines a day waltzing over to
the cologne bottles to ask questions
by the acre and take a free bath, with
never anything more than a sugges
tion of purchasing. Don't imagine
that these are people who cannot af
ford to buy their perfumery. Young
women who are known in all the fash
ionable circles of the city have got
the mania, and one of those whom
you have just seen is the daughter of
a Charles street man who pays taxes
on oyer $1,000,000 worth of property.
Another woman who comas here to
wether handkerchief and scent her
dress once a week at least is a leader
m one of the most exclusive sets up
twn. It is humorous to sec some of
ol them disport themselves at the
counter. They uncork every bottle
within reach, sniff" and sniff and sniff
till long after every sense of smell is
deadened, ask the price of this and
tho price of that, want to know who
tjses theMjneand-who thebther,
where one was manufactured and
where another, whether a certain odor
is lasting, whether it is fashionable,
whether a hundred things, and then
at the tail end over they tip some one
of the bottles, sometimes more xnan
one, and take their daily bath. Stand
it? Of course we stand it. How can
Wo help it?"
STORIES OF THE IMPB03ABLE.
A well-husbanded lady is now re
siding in the State of Arkansas. She
is Go years of age, and is living with
a courageous man who has assumed
the position of being her fourteenth
husband. It is said that in the hall
of her house there are thirteen pegs,
upon each of which hangs a hat duly
labeled as the property of oiio of the
A child with two tongues is said to
be living at Yonkers. Tho r cond
tongue has grown from the root and
on top of tho first. The mother first
noticpd it when the child was three
days old. It was then quite small,
but it is now nearly as large as the
real tongue. The anterior pnrt of the
upper tonguo looks natural, but the
posterior part is constricted and
round, giving the unnatural growth a
pear shape. The child, now two
years old, has never experienced any
difficulty in swallowing its food or
breathing, looks natural in every
other way, and has always been
Much interest has been caused by
the discovery of a tusk of a huge
mastodon by W. Ilazleton on Hol
land Creek, about five miles from
Centerville. The recent rains caused
the creek to wash out to a depth of
twelve feet from the surface and ex-
fiosed to view a tusk about six feet in
ength by nine inches hi diameter in
the shape of a semicircle. It was
snugly imbedded in a stratum of
cemented gravel. It is not petrified,
but seems to be in its natural stato,
although when first exposed to the
air it immediately broke into small
A singular freak of nature is shown
in the case of Mrs. Polly George, a
lady tfell known to many citizens,
who lives two miles from Milburn, in
this count'. Mrs. G. is 70 years old,
the mother and the grandmother of a
large family in this county. During
her life she has cut and shed her
teeth twice and now has commenced
to cut lier third sel, having cut four
teeth within the past month two
above and two below. She also, a
little over a year ago, shed her air,
which was white with age, and t is
now replaced by a suit of black hair
with an occasional silver thread only.
A rather singular incident occurred
in St. Francis bottom lately. In
crossing Tyrouza River on a mule the
rider, a negro, fell off and was
drowned. The mule came safely to
shore and was taken possession of by
the 'Squire. The river was dragged,
the negro's body found and on it a
Eistol. He had been dead three days,
ut the 'Squire fined him $50 ana
costs for carrying concealed weapons
and confiscated mule and pistol to
pay the same.
The seas of India and China now
have twelve tidal observatories, each
of which is moved to a new spot
every fifth year.
A writer from Fiji asserts that
when flocks of tern and other sea
fowl rest upon the sea the water be
comes smooth, an effect which he as
cribes to oil emitted by the birds.
Evidence of the sanitary value of
sunlight is afforded by the recent ex
periments in France of Mons. E.
Duclaux, who finds that the light of
the sun, in its action on germs, is
fifty times as destructive as its heat.
Distilled water saturated with oxy
gen is now prepared in Paris, and is
rapidly gaining favor. Aside from
its healthfulness for ordinary table
use, it is said to be valuable in the
treatment of diseases of the digestive
An opportunity of studying a case
of leprosy has been afforded Dr. Gutt
man, who assures tho Berlin Medical
societ' that there can bo no doubt
that the living bacilli found in the
system of leprous patients are really
the cause of the disease:
Tho Dutch government has had
collected the reports of 1,300 eye wit
nesses in order to prepare an accur
ate history of the Krakatoa volcanic
eruption, "which many suppose was
the cause of the wonderful skyglows
seen over a large part of the world.
It is reported that Herr Palisa, of
Vienna, the well-known discoverer of
asteroids, whishes to sell for $250 tho
right of namingsmali planet No. 244,
the money to be applied by him to
the fitting out of an expedition to ob
serve the total eclipse of August,
The conclusion has been reached
by Mons. Foyal that the absorption
of atmospheric oxygen by coal dust
usually produces the rise in tempera
ture to which spontaneous combus
tion is due. He finds that lignite is
ignited at the low temperature of 300
degrees, anthracite at 575 degrees,
and other varieties of coal, in pow
dered form, at intermediate tempera
tures. Fish in Warm Water. An experi
ment'has been made at South Ken
sington to determine the degree of
neat which various hshes may en
dure. The water containing them
was slowly warmed, when individu
als of the several species were pros
trated at the following temperatures: J
rerca, sz degrees; roacn, szi-zs de
gree ; salmon, 83 degrees ; minnow,
85 degrees ; gudgeon, 85 1-2 degrees ;
dace, 80 degrees; common tench,
bo derees; golden tench, 88 de
grees; carp, 91 degrees. Brandy
abont which as a fish restorer much
has lately been said seemed to have
good effect in restoring to animation
the exhausted objects of tho experi
ment. Shape of the Earth's Orbit Proc
tor remarks that a common error is
the supposition that the earth moves
in an obviously elliptical path, where
as it really appears to travel in a
circle. Taking the earth's or
bit when its eccentricity was very
nearly at its greatest 850,000
years ago tho numbers 325 and
324 represent the actual propor
tion between the greatest and short
est axes of the figure described by
our planet's motion around the suri.
So that if a circle is drawn with a ra
dius of three and one-fourth inches it
nowhero departs more than tho hun
dredth part of an inch from tho ellipse
which would represent with perfect ac
curacy the orbit of the earth 850,000
years ago when it was so much more
divergent from an exactly circular
form than now.
Plant Parasites. Almost every sort
of plant furnishes a living to its own
fieculiar species of aphis, or plant
ouse, by which great destruction is
occasionally wrought. Dr. J. Sibley
Hicks, an English entomologist,
states that the hop aphis caused a
loss in 1SS2 amounting to nearly $9,
000,000. This enormous damage is
explained by the fabulous rate of in
crease of the aphis, it being possible
for a single female to see in her life
time a progeny of over 4,500 million
individuals. Another destructive
species, known as American blight,
occurs on apple trees, and was first
observed in 1785 in an orchard near
London. The vine aphis (phylloxera)
has done immense damage in the
vineyards of France, where it was
first found in 1865. Fortunately, the
aphites have numerous enemies, es
pecially active ones being "the cater
pillars of the lady-bird, the lacewing
fly and its grub, "and the ichneumon
fly. A lady-bird caterpillar will de
vour forty or fifty daily.

The Craze For Womon's Classes.
"What does it mean, that thoro is
such a constantly increasing number
of lectures and classes for women?
It is a fact not peculiar to any one
city. These same institutions are
found in all large cities. These classes
are of different sorts and are con
ducted on different plans. For most
part they are lectures, readings or
recitations on English literature,
French literature, art, in some one of
its varied aspects, architecture, his
tory and kindred subjects. "What is
the" motive for these things and what
is the reason for their existence? Are
those who attend them in want of oc
cupation, or do these pursuits provide
a useful way of utilizing leisure mo
ments? Are they sought for the cul
ture they give, or because those who
attend them wish to gain the reputa
tion of having literary interests, and
from that fact to be roni,iered par
eons of culture9
