I have found from experience, says a
veterinary surgoon. I have closely
noted this fact and have had an oppor
tunity to judge, having performed
thousands of operations on horses,
some of them sufficiently painful to
test the gameness of the subject I
have found that the most arrant cow
ards among horses are sorrels and the
gamost brutes bays or browns. Some
time ago I performed an operation on
a pair of chestnut sotrels and they
groaned like human beings. A bay or
brown will usually suffer without a
noise of any kind, just rolling its big
eyes in an appealing way which is
almost human in its intensity. Gray
and white horses, as a rule, are not
particularly game. Chicago Tribune.

Bow the Mttla Colua Are Turned Oat by
the Nan Francmeo Mint.
The silver dime is a useful little coin,
and just at present thy seem to bo in
demand; so much so that the San Fran
cisco mint is turning them out at a
great rate.
The process of dime-making la an
Interesting one. The silver bullion is
first melted and run into two-pound
bars. These in turn are run through
immense rollers and flattened out to
the thickness of the coin. These sil
ver strips are then passed through a
machine, which cuts them into proper
size for tbe presses, the strips first
having been treated with a kind of
tallow to prevent their being scratched
In their passage through the cutters.
The silver pieces are then put into
the feeder of the printing presses, and
are fed to the die by automatic ma
chinery at the rate of 100 per minute,
(8,000 dimes being turned out in a
regular working day of eight hours.
As the smooth pieces are pressed
between the ponderous printing dies,
they receive the lettered and figured
v.'jiression in a manner similar to that
f a, jmper pressed upon a form of
tys-'l M the same time, the piece is
expa.ii.ud in a slight degree, and the
small corrugations are cut into its rim.
The machinedrops the comploted
coin into a receiver, and it is ready for
the counter's hands. The instrument
used by the counter is not a complicat
ed machine by any means, asone might
suppose. It is a simple copper-colored
tray, having raised ridges running
across its surface at a distance apart
the exact width of a dime.
Erom the receiver the money is
dumped on the board or tray, and as it
is shaken rapidly by the counter the
pieces settle down into the spaces be
tween the ridges. All these spaces be
ing filled, the surplus coin is brushed
back into the receiver, and the counter
has exactly 1,250 dimes, or $125, on his
tray, which number is required to fill
the spaces. The tray Is then emptied
into boxes, and the money is ready for
The dime does not pass through the
weigher's hands, as does the coin of a
larger denomination. One and one

dollar down, and the deviation from
the standard in the ten-cent' pieces is
so trifling that the trouble and expoDse

Koveltles Prodne4 for the Coming Spring
and Bummer Deaaone.
The new parasols for spring and
summer are covered faille or armure
silk In plain colors or richly brocaded,
or with striped silks, plaids or bord
ered patterns, and very dressy para
sols have thin gauze, silk muslin or
net covers brocaded wlth tinsel in de
signs like embroidery. The handles
are of natural woods holly, acacia,
bamboo, cherry or ebony with curi
ously twisted hoops or large hooks or
knobs at the end, or else they are
quaintly carved and tipped with silver
or gold. Coaching parasols and those
for general use have handles that ex
tend fourteen inches beyond the edge
of the silk cover when closed. The
Dlrectolre parasols to be used with
walking toilettes have much longer
handles, like walking-sticks, extend
ing eighteen inches beyond the cover,
and these handles are now put to
gether with a screw joint so that they
may be taken apart and doubled
small enough to go into a very
small trunk. Rich brocades of the
last century in dull colors and with
metalic designs are appropriate cov
ers for these parasols when meant for
dress, while for morning walks the
striped and bordered silk covers are
used. A novel feature inside the new
Cleopatra parwola is a ribbon trim
ming winding around the stretchers
that hold the parasol open as they ra
diate from the stick; when the parasol
is closed these ribbons show beyond
the tips, and a cluster of loops is
formed around the stick, giving a full,
bunchy effect that is considered very
Faille parasols of green or of gray
shades are made to correspond with
many of the spring stuffs for dresses.
Striped parasols must be striped
around iriitead of down the breadths,
and those with wide stripes are pre
ferred. The ferule at the top is very
long, and Is pointed in parasols that
have oane handles. Black parasols
have new designs of moire, palm, ovals,
or large balls on faille grounds. For
mourning are nnauzimir pai aeots witu
carved ebony sticks. For piazzas
and carriage use in midsum
mer are white and gold bro
caded silk parasols, or pale old
rose, or blue brocades in leaf and
ostrich feather designs, or else em
broidered silk muslin or net is put
plainly over white, black, gray, rose
or empire-green silk ot the shade as
the transparent fabric A bow of the
silk or of the ribbon is tied on the
handle in full loops, and a loop of
passementerie ccd is also added there,
through which the arm is passed to
carry the parasol when it is not hoist
ed. Sun-umbrellas have a short eight
inch handle tipped with gold or silver,
and are covered with black taffeta silk.
For the country are cotton satteen and?
gingham parasols in large figures and
plaids, with either short or long ban
dies. India silk is also prettily mount
ed for parasols to match the summer
dress with which it is worn. Small
turned-over shades for use in early
spring are made up of silks, or they
have lace covers all in one piece in the
fashion of long ago. Harper's Bazar.
A Singular Ca.tom Which la a. Indelicate
aa It I Dangerona.
A singular custom prevails in some
of the rural parts of Pennsylvania and
the other Middle States which will
surprise such of our readers as are
used only to the habits of city life. On
Sunday evenings the parlor is aban
doned by all of the family except the
you r.g girls, who, arrayed in all their
finery, sit there prepared to "keep
company" with the young men who are
supposed to be their lovers, or to
whom they are engaged. Ko older
person is expected ' to enter the room;
the seance lasts until midnight On
Other days of the week the engaged
couple meet openly in the kitchen or
elsewhere, and carry on their re
searcheainto each other's character in
the presence of the whole family.
lu some villages of Northern New
England it is common for young girls
to entertain theirmale visitors alone
until late at nlgbL-rcmg after the rest
of the family are asleep.
The Companion wouldNnot deserve
its name, so far as the moJtiludes of
young girls are concerned to whom it
has been a friend since their childhood,
if it failed faithfully to warn tlfera
against any gross solecism in gooiij
manners, or oi any nao:i wnicn may
lead them into contempt or temptation
In city life, among well-bred people
whose aim it Is to make a young girl's
life not only pure in reality, but in its
outward appearance, such customs as
these which we have described are
rigorously condemned and avoided.
A girl belonging to this class receives
her male friends at night only in the
presence of her mother or some other
It is probable that the young girls in
the country who practice these habits
are at heart quite as innocent as their
more protected sisters. Their error
arises from Ignorance, not viclousness.
These customs have descended to them
from the early pioneer days, when men
were too busy at the plow in day-time
and women In the kitchen to become
acquainted with each other, prepara
tory to marriage. They had to sit uy
while others slept to find time for
courtship. Their descendants are
surely not so taxed for time as to make
this necessary.
American mothers sometimes do
fend the laxity among our young peo
ple by the plea that the Innocence of
the American girl is her protection,
and that she is too pure to need the
guardianship of chaperones. To an
axtent this is true; but no girl can
place herself in the anomalous positions
which we have described without los
ing in a degree that delicacy of wo
manly feeling which should accompany
her us the aroma does a flower.
Resides, however good and true she
may bo. she places her reputation at
the mercy of the tongue of a man who,
It is possible, may be both sensual and
and merciless. No girl of refinement
and no thoughtful mother should coun
tenance a custom so Indelicate and
dangerous. Youth's Companion.
"Call me a gold gardener." said Clnudi,
the French miser. "Centimes are my
seed, they grow into francs and Ntix
loons, and then into hundreds and thou
sands. I how and gather my seed."
This is the age of germs and spores.
A Swiss doctor thinks he lias discovered
the cause of baldness to be a microscopic
fungus. Young men should now submit
their scalps to microscopic examination.
The Flag with Forty-two Stars.
Various arrangements have been pro
posed for the new United States flag
when the four additional states come in.
The present flag contains upon the blue
union the thirty-eight stars arranged in
five rows across the field, three rows con
taining eight stars each and two rows
with seven stars each. In arranging the
forty-two stars it has been suggested
that there be six rows containing seven
stars each. Another suggestion is that
there be three rows containing eight
stars each, as at present, and two rows
with nine stars. But this would neces
sitate changing tbe proportions of the
blue field, which must not be dona A
third proposition is to change the ar
rangement of the stars altogether, and
instead of in rows place them in the
form of a six pointed star. This is the
suggestion of the editor of The Youth's
The Order of Delphian.
For fifteen years past a great secret
society called the Order of Dclphians
has been 6lowly growing In this coun
try. Its members are school teachers.
Its main object is to advance the finan
cial and social interests of the profession
and to raise the standard of efficiency.
Good teachers out of a place will be able
to find employment through their
brothers and sisters of the order. It Is
claimed that a thorough organization of
the teachers of the country will enable
the pedagogic profession "to reach that
high plane of usefulness the grandeur of
its mission demands." The 'supreme
lodge of the United States is at present
in Lincoln, Neb. The lodge has been
regularly incorporated. Within a' few
months the order has been increasing
rapidly, and teachers all over the Union
are forming lodges.
A question that has long been of inter
est is how much beer makes a pint If
it is sold fresh and foaming, then the
measure is filled with foam. If, on the
other hand, the vessel is filled with the
liquid, then the liquid Itself to flat, stale
and unprofitable. In this perplexity a
brilliant thought has occurred to a num
ber of liquor dealers. They are forming
associations in which the members pledge
themselves hereafter to sell beer by

Modern experiments with galvanior

the assertion of the old phrenologists

governed by special localities in the brain.
