Those annoying and -unaccountable lapses of memory experienced when one is tinablo to recollect 6omo well known vrordr tho name of some perfectly fa- miliar friend are attributed by a French physiologist to the excessivo use of to- bacco. This gentleman has observed that aphasia and amnesia aro at present almost unknown among the gentler sex On the other hand he has nearly inva- riably found these afflictions common in men who are habitually heavy smokers whilo in cases where they are only of rare occurrence he has frequently known the extraordinary lapse to have been preceded by an extra dose of the fra- i grant weed. It is comforting however to be assured by the same authority that a moderate use of pipo or cigar is in no way harmful to the memory. Westminster Gazette. 0ATTLE IN THE HEAVENS.

LIGHTNINQUKE BIRDS. flights. Darts and Drops Wonderful In Their Accuracy and Swiftness. I have often wondered at the case "with -which a great big hen hawk drops from on high like a falling shot hit- ting so accurately its quarry on the ground for at the moment of beginning its descent it closes its wings almost tight against its sides and goes as true as a plumb line. Before it roaches the ground its speed becomes so rapid that you hear the air fairly shriek through its feathers and the heavy thud of the blow at the last is of deadly suggestion. I have seen a full grown hare snatched up into the air limp and dead after such a performance and borne away dangling in a grip of fata An expert trapeze man does many wonderful things but his extremest cleverness cannot equal that of a hawk which I saw dart under a flying king- fisher turn back downward and catch the bird in the breast Hawks .however are not more expert than kingfishers themselves.

Only of late years was the mercantile value of the oil dis covered. It developed very rapid ly. In two or three years mills for crushing the seed and render mg the oil sprang up all over the south and the new industry in creased until now the Cotton-seed Oil Trust is second only to the Standard Oil Trust in capital and magnitude of its operations. At first the product was mostly used for cooking purposes in place of lard but its sphere was very soon enlarged. Its yalue as a lubricat ing oil was soon discovered and it would be hard to tell in how many ways it is used now. There is large market for the seed alter the oil is extra&tgd too. It is sold in the shape of cotton-seed oil cake and meal for cattle food. The oil has become an article of great com mercia...

J "Our Chauncey" and W. S. Gilbert. The more .stories a man has the more difficult it is to say which is the funniest. I know a great many story-tellers and still more stories; but just which is funniest I would not dare say offhand. Here are two stories however which show the difference between the way the wittiest man in America and the wittiest man in England took a joke. A friend of mine a-newspaper man tells me that he was lately in a small town in New York state where Chauncey Depew was billed to make a speech that night and it happened -he stopped at the same hotel Depew did. Just after supper the editor of the local paper dropped in to se Mr. De- pew and the distinguished gentle- man proceeded to have some fun with the country journalist. He had fun too and every now and then he rounded up a') sentence against the editor by saying "Oh you can't believe everything in the newspapers" the editor having used the newspaper matter very largely in his argument. After the speech-mak...

POTATOES WERE HIS WEAPON. How a Kentucky Preacher Brought His Antagonist Low. The Lexington Ky. Transcript tells this story; One way of com bating an evil practice is to make it ridiculous. It was by this means that duelling Avas stopped in a cer lain aiBtnct in .Kentucky some forty years ago. At that time traveling preacher named Bowman a strong muscular man was con ducting a series of religious meet ings in Kentucky. At one of them a well-known desperate character created a disturbance and being publicly rebuked by Bowman sent him a challenge to fight. The preacher's first thought was to treat the matter with silent con tempt. Then he reflected that duelling was all too common in that region and he decided to ac- cept the challenge. As the challenged party Boyv- man had the choice of weapons. He selected a half-bushel of large Irish potatoes and stipulated that his opponent must stand fifteen paces distant and then only one potatoe at a time should be taken from the measure. The d...
