Practice Gives Pleasure and Advances
Animals, like people, are very apt
to be lonely, especially when there
is but one pet in the house. You have
noticed how delighted a dog is when
spoken to, and all pets, even rabbits,
mice and goldOsh, soon learn to re-
spond when spoken to by their own-
ers. A word now and then to a pet
not only gives it pleasure, but teaches
it to understand, and sometimes dogs
and cats iearn to understand nearly
everything said to them, and so be-
come more intelligent and companion-
able to their owners.
Pets that are kept continually out
of doors or under restraint, being
treated like machines, which must be
fed, exercised and bathed at certain
times, grow dull and uninteresting,
to the wonderment of their owners.
Even goldfish ^ill learn to rise to the
surface of the aquarium when spoken
to by the person who usually cares
for and feeds them.
Japanese Colony for Texas.
Mr. Akioki. a Japanese of distinc-
tion, is in this country seeking infor-
mation as to the climate and re-
sources of Texas, where it is proposed j
to found a colony of his countrymen.
U+ will shortly bring over 300 fam-
ilies, who will settle on a solid tract
of 10,000 acres in Bee county. They
will undertake tea-farming and silk
culture. The mulberry tree grows ev-
wfwhere in the region to a great
size. San Antonio is the nearest
town to the proposed crlony and the
expectation is that the newcomers
will make good citizens and inter-
marry and coalesce with their Texas
neighbors. Mr. Akioki says that if
ths first colony is a success he will
b*y another tract on which he has
an option, and in this there are 10,-
foO acres, enough to make homes for
3,000 families. There is a small col-
ony of Japanese now in Bee county.
They have devoted themselves to rais-
ing tea and this year sold their prod-
ucts with a good profit.

Telegrapher's Abbreviation That De*«
troyed all Eloquence.
The telegraph operators were spend-
ing their day off in a brisk walk
through the country.
"You know our habit of abbreviat-
ing. or substituting short words for
long ones?" said the Washington
operator. "Well, this habit once did
me harm.
"Senator Grande had made a
speech about education, and in wiring
the speech out I substituted the short
word 'kids' for the long word 'chil-
dren,' thinking that of course the
operators or editors at the other end
would have sense enough, in taking
down the message, to substitute the
long word for the short one. But
they didn't, and Senator Grande's
really eloquent and stately speech ap
peared in the next day's newspapers
in this fashion:
" 'My friends, you will remember
Wordsworth's profound saying, "The
kid is father to the man." I need not
dwell on the vital importance to the
community of imparting a sound
moral and secular education to kids
In their impressionable years. The
kids of this generation will be the
fathers and mothers of the next. One
said, ""Suffer little kids to come unto
me," and we should never forget that
saying in behalf of all kids the world
Unconsidered Trifles Frequently Causa
Heavy Loss.
Dust is a wonderful producer ot
fires. There have been instances in
postoffices where the dust of the mall
bags suspended in the rear of a close
room exploded with terrific force. Dust
explosions are of frequent occurrence
in flour and drug mills. The origin
of many fires ir tailor shops may be
traced to the so-nV" ' dry cleaning
of clothes. A rag dipped in naphtha
is frequently use 5 in removing
urease spots from r—mp-> s. The rag
soaked with irfl-mma le fluid is
thrown upon tb" fcor "^'hfn the shop
is closed up an l the a r is confined,
the naphtha-3o?ked material will of
'tself general" cre. Bales of cotton
olaced in the hol-l of a shin are often
the cause o? disastrous fires. Fre-
quently a srQrk from a cigar finds a
resting place in a cotton bale, where
it srroulder= for weeks. The dark
hall in tenement houses is the indirect
originator of fires. Greasy matting
or small heaps of paper lie about. A
match not extinsruished or a ciearette
stub is thrown down and a blaze re-
sults.—Fire ard Water.

Go me fcincl See?.
A Celestial Lamp.
It was little Edgar's first glimpse of
a real full moon. Up to that time his
astronomical observations had been
confined to furtive peeps at the lum-
inary as he prepared for early sleep-
ing. This particular evening he and
his mother had been out visiting and
were delayed in getting home. As
they left the street car, the little
chap caught sight of the moon over
the Palisades. It was one of those
nights that poets like to write about.
There was not a cloud in the sky and
the streets were almost as light as
day. Edgar took one look and stopped
in surprise and admiration.
"Oh, see, mamma," he cried, "God
has washed His lamp."—New York
Importance of Proper Rest.
Rest is absolutely necessary to ev-
ery one. There must be periods of
relaxation. Moments when the mind
and soul and body gather force for
continued activity.
The thing one should guard against
is taking rest at the wrong moment.
Herein lies most of the success of life
—resting at the right time. Too many
make the mistake of undertaking to
do more than they can shoulder.
They begin a task that does not be-
long to them. They are overambi-
tious, and "by that sin fell the angels."
In trying to do more than they can do
they fail utterly.

Advice to Those Who Would Retain
Competent Employes.
If you have competent help and
want to keep it advance every man
when his opportunity comes. There
is always another fellow lookirg for
gcou help, and usually he has an eye
on yours. A man may stay in your
employ apparently In a rut and ap-
parently satisfied as long as there is
no opening above him When that
Opening comes, if outsiders step in
to get the benefits, your man is gone.
He may not go that day. or the next,
but he will go. He is a disgruntled,
dissatisfied employe and will begin to
look about. Real merit never looks
long for a market. Promote the man
you know and have confidence in. and
start the stranger in less important
places. As .the wheels go 'round they,
too. will get the advar cement for
which every employe worth his hire is
striving.—Chicago Tribune.
Strange Mixtures to Which Visitors
Must Get Accustomed.
I was never an enemy of the confu- j
sion of the old and new in Europe ;
when Italy was all Europe to me, and
now in England it was distinctly a ;
pleasure. It is something we must ac- .
cept, whether we like it or not, and j
we had better like it. The pride of |
the old custodian of the Exeter Guild- I
hall in the coil of hot water pipes
heating the ancient edifice was quite
as acceptable as his pride in the thir- j
teenth century carvings of the oaken
door and the oak-paneied walls, the
portraits of the Princess Henrietta and
Gen. Monk, and the swords bestowed
upon the faithful city by Edward IV.
and Henry VII. I warmed my chilly
hands about the medieval facts, and
even fly to that uttermost antiquity
when the Roman Praetorium stood
where the Guildhall stands now. Still,
I was not so warm all over but that
I was glad to shun the indoors in-
clemency to which we must have re-
turned in the hotel, and to prolong our
stay in the milder air outside by going
a drive beyond the city iLto the charm-
ing country.—W. D. Howells, in Har-

When Nuns Powdered.
The custom of powdering the hair
dates back as far as the sixteenth cen-
tury. and was first introduced by the
nuns in French convents. Those who
had occasion to leave the croisters for
any reason were wont to powder their
hair, so as to mal;e it appear gray and
give them a venerable look. The fash-
ionable dames were so struck with
the novel effect of white powder on
<Lark hair that they soon appropriated
the device as one of the arts of the
;worldly toilet. Out of this grew the
use of tints in the hair. The Roman
women often used blue powder, and
later. H 1860, Empres Eugenie set
the fashion of using gold powder
Byron a Disappointment.
In Lord Byron's letters he tells how
he once had a visit from "a Mr. Cool-
idge of Boston, a very pretty lad, only
somewhat too full of poetry and
'entusymusy.'" Byron says: "I was
rery civil to him during his few
hoars' stay and talked with him much
of Irving, whose writirgs are my de-
light But I suspect he did not take
quite so much to me. from his hav-
ing expected to meet a misanthropi-
cal gentleman, in wolfskin breeches
anri arsweric? in fierce motoeyl-
lal : s. irs ead of a man of this world.
I can never get people to understand
that poetry is the expression of excit-
ed passioc and that there is no such
thing as a life of passion, any more
than a continuous earthquake, or an
eternal fever. Besides, who would
ever shaTe themselves in such a
state?" |
