1,250,000 Notes Without music. -----+----- It has been said of Dr. Ianns von Bulow an, Ruhinstein that. if every note of music worth preserving had been destroyed, they could between them have reproduced every li:lne of it. Von IDulow once gave a series of twenty piano recitIs. wit hout a line of music, and striking approxi natel]y a million and a qtuarter noutes, each of which had to ,e re tained in its exact position in his memory ; and Verdi once, for a wager, played, faultlessly an entire opera, drawn by lot, which he had composed fourteen years earlier, and of which he was not allowed to see a note.

Why the Gleam Faded. I He was an enthusiastic canvasser. and even the sounds of battle rag ing within did nIot prevent his knocking at the -door. A depressed and worn little man, with a battered expression, opened it. T''he caller expatiated on the beauty. excellence and uisefulness oi thlie book he waas selling. All was of no avail. At last a briliant thought struck him. "\We sell this book in palddled covers with roundllll covers. i \an would cover all .your books cheaply to match." The battered one showed a gleam of interest as he tingered a buimp on his forehead; but the gleamI fadled. "It would be no use,"' he said, dolefully ; "there woul still be the crockery and fire-irons."

MORE NOISE THAN WORIK. "My dear, look here," said Mr. Simkins, as he stood on deck with his wife and pointed to a tug drawing several barges. "Such is life; the tug is like the man, work ing and toiling, while the barges, like wolmen, are-" "I know," interrupted Mrs. S., acridly, "the tug does all the blowing while the barges bear all the burden." He was one of those fresh you:ng fellows, given to the use of stale slang. At the breakfast table, de siring the milk, he exclaimed :- "Chase the cow down this way, pl'ease." "Here, Jane," said the landlady, "take the cow down to where tihe calf is bawling.:' Mrs. Joseph Chamberlain is a dlescendant of one of the Pilgrim Fathers.

The Cold Bath. -4---- ITS GLOW OF REACTION. If you do not feel warm after a cold bath you had better not take it, for it is doing you no good. We do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanliness; cold water may w.ash off tile superticial dirt, but it does not extract the dlirt from the pores. We plunge into cold water solely for its invigorating effect and unless we get this effect from it we had better seek the in \igoration in some other way. Cold wnter alpplied suddenlry drives the blood from the skin iby constrict inFg the caplillaries. It also admin is ers a light shock to the nerves, which has an awakening effect upon all the muscles of the body.

White Men as Tit-bits. Strange tales of cannibal tribes who look on a white mnan as a tit-bit are told byv the Rev. Cecil HIall; formerly of Jamaica, who has returned after seven months' travel in the interior of New (,uinea. 'After seceral days' journey,"'' he .tated in an interview, "I came in to the region of the cannibal tribes. who seemed very fierce. ?articularly was this the case with the Ki-ki tribe, who made a practice of pre serving their enemies' heads. ''lihen we got down to a valley we were able to chase away a nu1n her of men, but the women who were left behind were found to be drag ing heads with theim. They had at leiast two or three hundred heads in a pIreserved condition, and quite a number that had just be.Žn cut oil the bodies. "After this iVe came to mountain sloI es, and after climbing some dis tance-we estimated it at about 3,000 feetu-we canme on a tribe the men of which were more fully clad than the ordinary native of the country, while the women were coml;l...
