OTHER DATS COMING.
The following article, pnrtiuent in
its entirety, is from the pen of Rev.
A. M. Lambert, pastoi of the Meth
odUt Kpieoopal ohnroh of this city:
Boys, there at other days oomlng.
Tear boyhood day will soon te gone,
aad yon aia soon to be etroggling with
the problems that belong to men.
Tbea, naturally, yea will tm earned
back tj that myateiioos something
called Memory. Aad memory is aome
loing that will atTat die, as by its
power yon will tie these daya that
are in tba resent past bat tar enough
not to c recalled again. Ton will
view them either witb regret or plea
aura, with joy or with aching hearts.
Yon are to be the fatbera of tba boyi
of a few yaara henos what kind of a
boy wonld yon like vonr boy to be?
Do yon wish him to be in every psr
tionlar, trustworthy; a boy on whom
all oan depend, so far as bis honesty
and integrity is oonoeroed, or do yon
prefer him to be jnst tba opposite?
Wonlil yon like your boy to be the
one of whom yon wonld be prond to
ay: "This is my boy;" or the kind of
boy yon would blnsb to own?
Wonld yon rather yonr boy wonld
make tbe best use of bis time at sobool
or wonld yon rather be wonld be in
dolent and idle?
Wonld yon like for him to conduct
himself so that bis teaobera will feel
prondtoaay; "There is a boy I oan
trust," or wonld yonr rather be wonld
be the reveide? Wonld yonr ratber
ronr toy would obooss as his most in
timate associates tboBe who are kind
and oonrteonstoward their parents or
those who are diarespeotfnl toward
their parents and soolf eis at tbe Church
aud saoied things? 1
I am sure that yon will say in an
swer to all these questions: I want my
toy to be manly and tine, spending
bis time in the wisest and best way and
to oondnoting himself that all well
disposed people will ears "This is the
kiud of boy we need I"
Don't forget that yonr father may
be anxious that bis boy be tbe kind
that yon desire yonr boy to be.

'TN "UNLUCKY "BRIG.
Repoits are now beginning to ootne
iu to the department from several of the
stutea quarantined for tbe foot and
month disease tbal persona wbo bave
no oonneolion wbatsoevei witb tbe de
partment are attempting to pass them
selves off aa Federal inapeotora. There
are several possible motives that may
aooonnt for the existence of these im
postors. In the outbreak of 1008
there were lnstauoea of men wbo ob
tained money from credulous vlotlma
Wbo believed that In this way they
would escape the inoouvenlenoe of
quarantine and dlainfeotion. This
is, of course, a very simple form of ex
tortion. Another motive may ta the
sale of some qnaok remedy for tte
disease. Stook ownera oan protect
themselves very easily against this
fraud, for there is no speoiUo remedy
for tba foot and month disease. Siuoe
tba germ baa never been isolated, it
has never beau possible aa yet to Hud
hot serum that wonld aot either aa a
onre or preventive, and tbe potllo may
be quite oettain that anyone wbo says
tbat be is an employe of tbe Depart
ment of Agrioulture, and at tbe same
time attempts to sell or even recom
mend anything of tbe aort, is simply
an impostor. For this reason stock
ownera are warned not to allow strang
ers to visit their stock or attempt any
demonstration! of ao-oalled ourea by
Injections or otherwise.
Europe should not lose sight of the
faut tbat Japan la retiring tbe western
nations )tia by one from the Asiatic
waters. She retired Russia a few jest,
ago, by taking Port Arthur and now
aha ban retired Germany. It ia a safe
bet Ibnt Japan will never ag.tln allow
a Enrc.pean nation to aoqnire stfib a
strooH hold on the ooeaua that wash
ber own island empire. Those who
go to trade in tbe east will mote and
more bave to aee Japan about it.

Rays From a Searohlight.
The paths traversed by raya from a
searchlight depend on tbe form of
curvature of tbe mirror. If flat, the
paths of reflected raya would be the
same aa those of the rays received; if
the arc of n circle, the . rays will be
reflected to one bright focus. To bave
a band of parallel rays leave tbe mirror
It must be tbe arc of a parabola. Then
straight raya will be reflected all
parallel to each other. In air, tbe In
tensity of this beam of light would
diminish, but in absolute vacuum
would be .aa Intense at any distance.
