THE FINGER NAILS. flow They Should be Cared for so as to e core the Maximum of Comfort. While serving as a protection to the extremities of the fingers, well-preserved nails add much to the beauty of the hand. On the contrary, nothing renders the hand more unsightly than thick, irregu lar and soiled nails. But another con sideration, making a proper care of them of the highest importance, is the fact that every person who labors with the hands is liable to gather, under the free margin of his nails, foreign matter, which may be very poisonous to the tis sues of the body. Many cases have oc curred in which the slightest abrasions of the cuticle by means of the finger nail have resulted in malignant, even fatal. inflammations. If. from any cause, the nail becomes thick and inelastic, it soon becomes rough, and assumes the appearance of an excrescence rather than an orna ment. In this condition it is much more dillicult to keep clean. To avoid this, the hand should not be subjected to ...

OFFICE BOYS. the Wonderful Love of am OMee yToung ster for His Mate. "Two souls with but a single thought, Two hearts that beat as one." It is probable that Damon and Pyth las were on exceedingly friendly terms, and that something superior to a sneak ing regard for each other warmed the breasts of David and Jonathan; but the love which existed between either pait was cold indeed compared to that fer vent affection which unites and welds together the fond hearts of the two boy, employed in one office. When David, apostrophizing the stricken Jonathan, exclaimed: "Thy love to me was won. derfdl, passing the love of women," he thought he was putting it pretty strong. And so he was. Had he said "passing the love of the office boy to his mate," he would have capped the cli. max; but'nobody would have believer him.
