WHEN 1 KNOCK AT YOUR DOOR.
TV Tien I knock at your door. May Belle, dearest.
Though I know you are srraoious and kind.
And your friendship has grown tha slnoerest,
Three things win come up In my mind:
I think of the night I once knocked there.
The time that still makes my heart ache,
When t (tot a great backset ar.d shock there.
By kissing jour ma, by mistake.
When t knock at yoor door. May nolle, darling.
I recall how I went there to win,
But the bull-dog behind mo came snarling.
And l without knocking, bulgsd in:
In the dark I encountered your father.
Who thought me a burglar, no doubt.
And without any questions or pother.
Ere I could explain, kicked me out.
When I knock at your door. May Belle, dearest,
Though I know that tome they're resigned.
And you lore me with heart the sineercst.
Three things will come up in my mind.
Three thoughts which I never can smother
Fill my head with a racket and roar, i
Yourself, and your father and mother.
May Belle, dear, when I knock at your door.

I heard the above snatch of conver
sation the last time I was In New York.
It occurred in the eveninc at the New
York end of Brooklyn Bridg-e, which,
at that hour, was crowded with men
hurrying home. The snatch of con
versation reads rather like a polite re
mark and rejoinder. It was any thing
but that. The first speaker was push
ing and elbowing; his way forward,
when he trod on another's corns. The
second man swore and glared around,
when the first said, suavely:
The wounded man like a flash struck
out from the shoulder, knocked the
other in the middle of next week, and
"Certainly. Pardon Tite."
The striker rapidly disappeared Into
the gathering gloom before the struck

me to be that In some instances ex

quite took- my breath away. Most of
the boys who come up to see me don't

I looked at the boy who wanted ad
vice. He had a fresh, honest face.
and I felt I had no hesitation in setting
him down as a good boy who would
probably make his way in the world.
"Well, my boy," I said, seriously,
"there is one thing Td advise you to
quit. If I was you, I'd stop getting
drunk and raising a racket on the
streets at midnight and getting run in.
That's my advice."
"I never touched a drop of liquor in
my life," said the boy, with so pained
an expression that I was sorry I had
spoken in this way to him.
"Don't smoke, I suppose?"
"Chew, snuff; any thing of that

"Well." I said, "that's all very un

me what they are. If yoa committed

make my task as adviser much easier.
As you don't do any of these things

come up to-morrow I'll, perhaps, see
my way clearer than I do now."
The boy thanked me, although I
knew I did not deserve any thanks.
Next day he called again. In the in

on Brooklyn bridge. Now, the man
said "Excuse me" and had been knock-

Two Mathematical Wonders Which. Will
Interest Every Reader.
A very curious number is 142,857,
which multiplied by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6,
gives the figures in the same order,
beginning at a different point; but if
multiplied by 7 gives all 93. Multi
plied by 1 it equals 142,857, multiplied
by 2 equals 285.714, multiplied by 3
equals 428,751, multiplied by 4 equals
571,428, multiplied by 5 equals 714,285,
multiplied by 6 equals 857,142, multi
plied by 7 equals 999,999. Multiply
142,857 by 8 and you have 1,142.856.
Then add the first figure to the last
you have 142,857, the original num
ber, the figures exactly the same as at
the 8 tart.
Another mathematical wonder is the
following: It is discovered that the
multiplication of 987654321 by 45
gives 4, 44. 44, 44, 44, 45. Reversing
the order of the digits and multiplying
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 by 45 we gt a result
equally curious 5. 555, 555, 505. If
we take 123456789 as the multi
plicand, and interchanging the figures
of 45 take 54 as the multiplier, 6, 666,
666, 606. Returning to the multipli
cand, 98765432 1. and taking 54 as
the multiplier again, we get 63, 333,
333. 34 all 3's except the first and
last figures, which together read 54
the multiplier. Taking the same
multiplicand and 27, the half of 54, as
the multiplier, we get a product of 26,
666, 666, 667, all 6s except the first and
last figures, which together read 27,
the multiplier. Now interchanging
the order of the figures 27 and using
72 as the multiplier and 987654321
as the multiplicand, we get a product
of 71, 111, 111, 112 all l's, except the
first and last figures, which read
together 72, the multiplier. Journal of

There are various ways for providing

called magic, but in ours recognized as
scientific tricks. The ghost picture,
for instance, in which a shadowy ghost

is done by the subject holding upon his

Dr. W. D. Hodges read, some months
ago, before the Suffolk Medical So

measles in an institution for children
over which he presides.
A child who was supposed to be suf

brought to the institution, and imme

in twenty-four hours an eruption ap

Three children, who were that day
discharged from the sick ward, devel

the others in eleven days. It spread
among the inmates until of sixty-five

ceptions ten were sent away, and eight
had already had it In the case of the
other two, no information on this
point could be obtained. Of the
forty-five patients, five died. The erup
tion was at its height on the fifth and
sixth days, and lasted from twelve to
fourteen days. In over one-half of the
cases there was inflammation of the
ear. In only one ease was there con

the eruption. This child made a rapid
recovery. The treatment consisted
mainly In cleanliness and the regula
tion of the diet
The following facts seem to be es
tablished: 1. The wonderful contagiousness of

self from, at least the earliest visible

and the eruption is from nine to twelve
4. Its fatality is mainly from its com

5. In a majority of cases, there is a
tendency to produce more or less In

fact for parents to bear In mind.

How to Destroy Ants.
Prof. Cook, of the Michigan Agri

success. To use this we 'iave to find

the ants. This is rarely difnVu'. We
now use a crowbar, with which we
make a hole in the center of the mound
which should reach down to the level
of the lowest gallery of tie ants' nest
We now turn in about half a gill oi
bisulphide of carbon, after which we
throw on immediately a shovelful of
clay, which should be tt once com

fumes, soon destroys the last ant ol

We will suppose, now, that we want
to look at some of them tinder the

we put a drop of gelatine, of the con

cambric needle, and after heating it to
destroy all microbes that may be in the
air, we quickly break the seal of the
glass tube and insert the needle, draw

neck of the tube.
We insert the needle into the drop

put on the little cover to Bhut such

the slide under the microscope. In
forty-live minutes the mierobes have

which otherwise than by the agency of
heat or electricity is capable of destroy
ing life either by chemical action on
the tissues of the living body, or by
physiological action after absorption
into the living system." The fact
would seem to be that "poison" is a
question of quantity, not quality. Very
small quantities of aconite, hydro
