1 A Ban Francisco man had been in bed for
mvexal months with a malady that made
him very nervous and irritable. His wife
and daughter ministered to him assidu
ously, but were sometimes at their wits'
end in trying to satisfy his capricious de
sires. As the young lady said once, her
father was "so unreasonable that he would
scold if an angel were waiting on him."
One night when the mother and daughter
were both thoroughly tired out a yonng
Bun, a friend of the family, was called in
to watch with the sick man for six hours
after midnight. The invalid's wife in
structed him about the medicines and es
pecially cautioned him to be careful about
disturbing the patient.
' "He is very irritable," she said. "Don't
apeak to him except when he speaks to you,
and if he is asleep when the time comes for
him to take his medicine don't disturb
"And by the way," she added as she was
bout leaving the room, "you may like
something to read. Here is Mark Twain's
'Houghing It.' It will amuse you, but you
mustn't laugh while reading it, for Mr.
i wilt fancy you are laughing at him
and will be very much annoyed."
' The young man performed his duties to
the best of his ability, but on going away
. in the morning was thanked rather curtly
by the invalid.' As soon as he was gone
sir. J broke out:
"'See here, mother," said he, "don't ever
send that numskull to watch with me
"Why, father, what do you meant
Wasn't ue attentive lie didn't go to sleep,
"No, no, no. But I was awake for two
hours, ai:U I watched him reading Mark
Twain's book ail that time, and"
"But, father,': interposed Mrs. J 'I
gave him that book to occupy his time.

The Pope's Frugal lire.
The pope, according to Dr. Ceccarellt,
leads a very regular acd frugal life. He
rises at 6 o'clock, says mass at 7, and is
present afterward at the prayers of thanks

milk and eggs. Then he gives private re
ceptions. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon he
makes a slight dinner, soup, a little fish

Women and Cabs.
Of all the ways in which women are
"pound foolish" there Is none to equal
their way of not taking cabs when they
know they should. It is charged against
them that they will lose a train, catch
their "death o' cold" or be late at a fu
neral rather thun hail a cabby, as men
universally da One especial woman
got a lesson on the subject the day be
fore Christinas, when the mud was of a
peculiarly clinging sort. There were
about a hundred tiresome little errands
she must do down town about noon.
She had vainly tried to elude all her
family on leaving home, but it had been,
'Oh, you U be near the bazaar; do get
the candles for the tree, and the Ger
man mottoes, and "An, please post this
in the postoflics and than It will get
there today." i
The mud began to stick immediately.
and she thought of taking a cub to go
about in, but they are so dear, anil it
was only a "step of a way." Boon the
fust accumulating bundles in her arms
prevented her lifting her skirts, and the
fur binding on its edge dragged it down
on the slimy pavements. Higher and
higher grew the border of mud. Bhe
saw the passers by beginning to glance
sadly at that besmirched gown, as If in
sorrow rather than anger, and then
would gladly have paid one dollar, aye.
or ten dollars, for a vehicle wherein to
hide, only she was too agonizingly dirty
to dare to enter anything cleaner than a
Ths next day, in the season of peni
tence spent in brushing her gown, she
struck a balance. Her skirt from navy
blue had turned a vivid azure wherever
the mud bad stained it That meant
spending two dollurs for a braid border;
the damage to her boots was at least two
dollars more, and having to spend a half
hour of Christmas day in cleaning that
horrible skirt would need fifty dollars to
indemnify one. The cab she did not get
would have cost her one dollar. Balance
of tifty -three dollars in favor of the cab.

The Average Sleeping Boom.
Look into the sleeping room of the
laborer, the clerk, the mechanic, where
they spend from seven to nine hours of
the twenty-fonr. Generally they are
the smallest and most inconvenient
rooms in the house; on the shady side,
with one window, precluding any thor
ough ventilation. Even this one win
dow may be so arranged that ths yiM
will blow directly on the sleepers head
if left open at night. Perhaps there is
a small closet where, for want of other
room, soiled clothing, boots, shoes and
other belongings are kept. Oftentimes
a row of hooks on the wall Is the only
apology for a closet, and ths clothing
hung on them adds to the general stuffi
ness of the room.
In this small, ill ventilated room two
grown persona sleep, with a baby or
small child added sometimes both.
What wonder that the children are cross
and have no appetite in the morning?
How can the parents be fitted for thetr
daily labor, after sleeping In such a
room? The boarding houses are no bet
ter, especially among the cheaper olass,
many sleeping rooms being hardly
larger than a tilosot. Good Housekeep
ing. fyuser Theory About Insanity.
There is something in the atmos
pherii' conditions that develops insanity
and murderous impulses," said a student
of human nature. "That is my theory.
It is like the grip and other diseases that
prevail at certain times and under cer
tain conditions. There are all sorts of
diseases and impulse in people, and it
only needs the conditions to develop
them. Insanity is a peculiar disease,
and to a greater or less degree exists in
a pretty large proportion of mankind.
In most cases it is shown in a harm
less idiosyncrasy and excites no mors
comment than mild ridicule, but in
many cases It has a homicidal tendency
that is suddenly and unexpectedly de
veloped. Can this be through natural
and general causes or is It imitation that
produces these mind waves? I believe itis
the former that general causes similar
to the conditions that produce the grip
wave, the cholera wave, the horse dis
temper wave or any other disease of a
son also tend to unbalance the badly
balanced mind." New York Herald.
Prlnees Who Cannot llorrow.
In regard to the Prussian royal family
there is an eiuellent law, which, hud It
existed here, would have saved us much
money. Ho royul prince is allowed to bor
row, and no one is allowed to lend money
to him. If any one does lend he cannot
recover. ' ActinK on this law, Frederick
the Great never repaid any Prussian
who had lent him money when he was
heir to the throne, for he deemed that
such a person had not only violated the
law, but onght to lose his money for
having done an improper action. Were
one of our princes to borrow money, and
an application to be made to parliament
to repay it, the strong probability is that
the house of commons would follow tho
example of Frederick the Urent. I
would, indeed, go further, I would in
flict a heavy line on any one asking to
be repaid by parliament, and on any
minister asking fur a vote tor any such
purpose. boudon Truth.
