of time, on account of Its universal ac

so that they may sjiend ono day doing as
their favorites about whom they read al

stems as possible. Make the stem into a
loop, slip the head of the next daisy
through it, draw the loop tightly, loop
the uext and keep on looping and slip

around your hat. Another way to make that the above reward was tho standing

It has often been said that the old
stagecoaches caused in the aggregate
many more deaths than the modern
railway trains, even though railway ac
cidents, when they do happen, are usu
ally more serious than those to which
stagecoaches are liable. A French
statistician has been impressed with tbe
numerous accidents canned by the om
nibuses iu Paris, and he contrasts them
iu a similar way with accidents on the
railways. Even those who know the
dangers of tbe Paris streets, which are
far gieater to all apieurance than those
of the London streets, will probably be
surprised at the result arrived at. The
conclusion based upon the statistics of
the past year is that the Paris omnibus:-
es alone count more victims iu one year
than do the whole of the railways of
France in ten times that period. Lou
