4j t - 1. How a Snake Crawled over Bellew. Kyrle Bellew who is accompa- nying Mrs. Cora Uquart Potter on her tour of the Indies recently wrote a letter to a friend in this city in which he gave a descrip- tion of an encounter with a much dreaded cobra says the New York Tribune. It seems from his ac- count that in Calcutta in order to prevent encounters with the various reptiles with which that city is in- fested it is necessary to keep all chairs tables and in fact every article of furniture clear of the walls and even at times to place the legs of the various articles of furniture in receptacles filled with water. One hot afternoon about three months ago Bellew was tak- ing his regular noonday siesta when he was suddenly awakened by a most uncanny feeling in his arm which rested on the back of a lounge upon which he was reclin- ing. Opening his eyes he glanced cautiously toward the offending member and was horrified to find a deadly serpent crawling stealth ily along and evidently ...

7 2 II 4 PARTICULAR ABOUT SEED. A Dakotan Writes a Peculiar Letter To His Congressman. Rather a funny letter was read in the house yesterday by Represent- ative Pickler of South Dakota while the agricultural bill was un- der consideration. Mr. Pickler .has a constituent numed James Wells -living at Briton S. D. Mr. Wells or rather Mr. Well's wife wants some garden seeds. So he made his appeal in the following words: "I would like some seventy-day corn and if the new administration has any new silver seed that will produce standard silver dollars or even Mexican dollars in about sixty days I would like some of that. Our country is well adapted to the raising of silver. We would like something that would yield 1000 bushels to the acre and sell for a dollar a bushel. We have not farmed much but are looking for anything new or profitable. Some of our friends say that Ger- man carp is a good crop. We will put in a few acres for a starter if we can get the seed. Some of our friends recomm...

7i 'V Peanuts an Elegant Food. The lover of peanuts may here- after hold up his head among his. neiiow men. Heretofore the "munching of this product of the .-soiMias been considered undigni fied not to say vulgar and it has been practiced mainly by small boys and men whose heads were not supposed to be over supplied with brains. Of course we admit that many .respectable persons have confessed to a sneaking fondness for peanutB but they have been wont to indulge their weakness in this particular on the sly as it were; for . instance when in some other town or when leaking an excursion by boat to Coney Island. But all this may now be changed. That eminent expert on foods Mr. Edwin Atkinson of Boston has come forward with the asser- tion that the peanut contains a great deal of nitrogen which is one of th-e essential things in food if one is to live as he ought. "All kinds of nuts" says Mr. Atkinson especially peanuts are especially rich iu this food element." -Mark that! "Specially pe...

' He was in evening dres's and as he leaned forward and caught a glimpse of his face in a mirror he was surprised to see that he was pale. But he felt it to be the supreme moment of his life the one on which his whole future hung. For had he not decided to ask Beatrix that evening to be his wife? He heard the rustle of silk en skirts and drew a quick invol untary breath. But it was Mrs Hildehart the mother of Beatrix who entered She was a widow nd lived alone with her daughter "Ah Mr. Fort" said the- lady extending her hand graciously ' "you are quite deserted here are you not?" "No not that Mrs. Hildehart" answered Homer. "I found the place dPcjerted and colonized it and base mv claim on priority of settlement. But I encourage im migration." he added quickly. The ladv smiled as she sank into a chair and looked at the ; young man. - "Your daughter" continued Ho ...

Home Manners for Children. There are few portions of house- hold training that are more neg- lected thnn the training of children ; in the hahits of eating. In the family it is the easiest thing in the y world to grow careless or indulg- ent in various practices not per- missable in polite society; hut all the same these habits are formed and the children as a natural con- sequence grow up in such ways It is a small wonder that when they find it necessary to go out into the worldj they re obliged to have a thorough course of training to unr learn the habits of early life. The only excuse for this is when the parents are totally ignorant of the proprieties of life. It i? a poor comment on bad manners when the young persoo in response to reproof says: "We always did so -at home." And no parent should permit it to be possible for a child to cant such a reflection on the guardian of its tender years. It is comparatively easy once the habit of discipline is established to com- pel the ob...
