BARBARITY AT WEDDINGS.
it is hard to genuerAlihze int a great
country like ours. Movements and
customs vary so widely in different
sectioijt, that what, is true of one pait
does not at all apply to another; but it
does really seem as though the shock-
ing practical jokes which used to be
perpetrated at weddings, even thoss
among fairly cultivated people, were
Thus news comes of a large wed-
ding in Boston, where certain
"friends" of the bridegroom had made
elaborate preparations for padlocking
his suitcase, hiding his hat and unm-
brella, placarding his back and even
for handcuffing tlie newly married
couple together, when the best man
stepped in and bioke up the fun.
"I won't haye anything of the
kind," he said with decision. "I
don't see any tun in it. It's the kind
of humor which belongs in log cabins,
where people can't read or write.
You all know I enjoy a lively time as
well as any one. I don't mind noise,
and a practical joke now and then
goes v~ell enough. But when I get
married I shall feel a little too serious
tor it-and everybody ought to. It is
coarse-and it's silly."
The young man actually carried his
point. There was some rice thrown,
a few old shoes were flung after the
carriage; but there was no padlocking
nor placarding nor handcuffing, and
the poor young bridegroom, who had
had to muster up all his courage in
order merely to be married, was able
to find his things and go off with his
pretty bride with some sort of dig-
Much fortitude is required to go
through the ordeal of a modern wed-
ding. The girls like it, but the men
wish they had eloped. Probably
there was ueyer a bridegroom, outside
of the regular society set (who live
chiefly to stare and be stared at),
who did not plead for "a quiet wed-
ding." But the spectacle is charming
for the rest of us-and perhaps it is
just as well that marriage should be
surrounded with considerable pomp
T'ie boys will therefore have to
make up their minds to undergo a
showy wedding, if that is what the
bride likes. But there is no need that
the barbarous pranks should follow,
which bare marked some occasions of
the kind. A New Bedford pastor has

children do now. Stoves had notl
been invented then, so everybody had
to se fire-places instead. Whea the
children wanted to bake their play
leaves of bread, they drew a lot of
hot coals down on the brick hearth
and let them stay there until the
bricks had become very not, and then
put the piece of dough on the hot
bricks and let it bake. The firepices
were something like our grates, only
very much larger-many of them
being as large as a small room. At
one side of the fireplace bung a long
iron bar to hold the kettles. It was
called a orange. Away in against the
bricks on either bide of the fire were
placed pieces of logs about too inches
high, and on these the children used
to sit and play all through the winter.

DEATH OF B. V. BROCK.
The people of St. Andrew were
shocked, last Saturday night, to re-
ceive word thru the mails that our
former townsman, B. V. isrock, had
died of meningitis at his present home
Birmingham, Ala. His father, Mr
A. T. Brock had been summoned a
few days before, to come at once, for
his son was dying; but everyone hoped
it would prove that he was not so bad
as was thought; but the report veri-
fied their worst fears. Mr. Brock
grew from boyhood to mauhood here
in St. Andiew, and no one could
boast a larger circle of friends than
he-i fact it is doubtful if there was
a single person that bore him an un-
kind feeling. Engaging in the mer--
cantile business here,he built up a fine
trade and was enjoying enviable pros-
perity; but he was ambitious for more
and moved to Birmingham, where he
inaugurated a wholesale and commis-
sion business and was in a fair way
to accumulate a tortune; but the de-
stroyer, death, placed his mark upon
him, and he was obliged to yield and
everyone who knew him feels the
keenest sorrow at his loss. His
father will bring his remains to St.
Andrew and is expected to arrive on
the Tarpon. He leaves a wife and
one young son, in Birmingham, his
father and mother and one sister Mrs.
J. A. Moates,here, a married sister at
Millville, and still another, in Jackson.

pathy of all who know the promising
young man, cut down in the primerof

home on the Tarpon, yesterday and
were received by the sorrowing rela-
tives and many friends who had
known and loved the estimable
young man in life.
A London a-nkuet of 1582.
A Spanish visitor to London in 1582
. describes a banquet of that day. "I will
tell you no lye," he begins cautiously.
f "I saw such kindes of meate eaten as
are wont to be sene and not eaten-as
a horse rooted, a cat in gely, little lis-
ars with whot broth, frogges tried and
divers other sortes of meates, which I
sawe theme eate, but, I never knew
what they were till they were eaten,"
The "quaking custard" of that' period
* was a huge dish In the middle of the
table, into which, "at a private signal,
the city fool suddenly leaped over the
heads of the astonished feasters, who
were instantly bespattered with this
rich and savory mud." Undeterred.
however, by this nasty behavior, the
citizens not only ate plentifully of the
, custard, but even took some home to
their wives. Nor were the women of
k those days backward londemanding ex-
i pensive dainties for themselves, it
s seems, for an essayist of 1001 sarcastic-
ally asks; "Who will not admire our
e nice dames of London, who must have

What We Stand On.
The density of the earth as a whole
has been estimated, with close agree-
ment among the scientists who have
made the determination by different
methods, to be about 5.5, or five and a
half times as heavy as an equivalent
sphere of water. On the other hand, the
average density of the materials form-
ing the accessible parts of the earth's
crust is between 2.5 and 3, so that the
mean density of the whole globe Is
about twice that of its outer part.
This indicates that the central part of
the earth is composed of heavier mate-
rials and may even be metallic, which
condition, says the Engineering and
Mining Journal, would accord perfect-
ly with the nebular hypothesis.

A Famous Bell.
The emperor's great bell in the Ca-
thedral of Cologne was consecrated
with great pomp. Twenty-two cannon
taken from the French were assigned
by the Efperor William for Its man*.
facture. It was cast by Andreas
Hamm of Frankenthal, and more than
$20,000 was paid for the casting.
It bears an Inscription recording
that "William, the most august enm
peror of the Germans and king of the
Prussians, mindful of the heavenly
help granted to him whereby he con-
ducted the late French war to a pros-
Verous issue and restored the German
onpire, caused cannon taken from the
Prench to be devoted to founding a
bell to be hung in the wonderful ca-
thedral then approaching completion."
A likeness of St. Peter, the name
patron of the church, Is on the side,
beneath which Is a quatrain in the
style of the mediaeval conceits, pray-
Ing that as devout hearts rise heaven-
ward at hearing the sound of the bell
so may the doorkeeper of heaven open
wide the gates of the Celestial mansion.

anxiously at her sister's flushed cheeks

Later, when Annie wandered down
the road with Rob, the moonlight show-
ed their heads very. close together,
while now and again the girl broke
Into a ripple of mischievous laughter.
Watclifng, the mother felt a pang of
Jealousy. Rob was a good match, yet
she dreaded, the day she must yield her
daughter to another, and tonight the
time seemed very near. She went sev-
eral times to her room for forgotten
trifles, and each time there showed a
line of light beneath her sister's door.
"Seems to me you're a long time
getting to bed," she admonished.
"I-I'm most ready," came the re-
ply. If Mss Lettlee's voice sounded
less even than usual Mrs. Allen was
not herself sufficiently calm to notice.
As was customary in the morning.
Mflad Lettlee betook herself to the barn.
and the working of the loom broke
tamlliarIy on the quiet air. Shortly
after 10 Mrs. Allen. attracted by the
rumble of wheels on thbo road, sawthat
the carrier was making an extra trip.
She spoke of It to Annie, who came in

"She has some rags for carpet weav-

Mrs. Allen sniffed, disgruntled.. "Your

telling me. Besides. there's none too

In the afternoon she was too busy
preserving to notice Annle's absence
or give thought of her sister, but when
the last Jar of jelly was sealed she
caught up her suabonnet and crossed
the road to relieve Lettice.
N As she entered the barn the glare
from the outside sunlight blinded her,
but evenk.when that passed she doubt-
ed her own sight. Rob was working
the loom while Annie, rosy and tender.
hung over the back of his hair. Miss
Lettice was nowhere to be seen, but
the carpet was completed. Even as
she entered Rob threw down the shut-

be as good to her as I know how."
"Say yes, mother. I'm so happy"-
There was a painful silence before
Mrs. Allei reluctantly gave consent;
then her bitterness sought an outlet.
"Where Is your aunt?"
"The carpet's done," explained Rob
"Done, Is It? By whom?"
"Mis' Allen. lIs' Allen"- The car-
rier drew her horse up at the barn and
on Mrs. Allen's appearance thrust a
note into her band and hastened on.

In the old days men and boys wore
rather long cloaks In the winter time.
They were black and were lined with
very bright and showy Scotch plaids.
One winter's night when I was start-
tng to church to square a crime of
some kind committed during the week
I hid my cloak near the gate and went
off and played with the other boys un-
til church was over. Then I returned-
home. But In iki ditk I put the cloak
on wrong side'' oit, entered the room,
threw the cloak tisd* and then stood
the usual examlestion. I got along
very well until thi temperature of, the
church was mentioned. My mother
"It must have been imposabl*e to
keep warm there on such a night"
I didn't see the art of that remark
and was foolish enough to explain that
I wore my cloak all the time I was ln,
eb rch. She asked if I kept It on
from church home too. I didn't see
the bearing of that remark. I said
that was what I had done. She said;
"You were in church with that red
Scotch plaid outside and glaring?
Didn't that attract any attention" r
Of course to continue such a dialogue
would have bean tedious and unpvota-.

It te constantly said that fishermen
greatly exaggerate the sie of the ftsh
that are lost. This accusation, though
most frequently and flippantly made,
Is Ih point of fact based upon the most
absurd arrogance and a love of slan-
derous assertion that passes under-
etanding. These are harmh words, but
they are abundantly just led.
In the first place, all the presump-
tions are with the fisherman's eanten-
tion. It Is perfectly plain that large
fish are more apt to escape than small
ones. Of course their weight and ac-
tivity, combined with the Increased
trickiness and resourcefulness of age
and experience, greatly increase their
ability to tear out the hook and ew
hazce the danger that their antks will
expose a fatal welknesl In book,
leather, line or rod. Another presump-
tion which must be regretfully men-
tioned arises from; the fact that in
many cases the encounter with a large
Ash causes such excitement and such
distraction or perversion of judgment
on the part of the fisherman as leads
him to do the wrong thing or fail to
do the right thing. "Pishing and

Animal. That Weep. ~ .
Travelers through the Syrian deast
have seen horses weep from thirst, a
mule has been seen to cry from the
pains of an injured foot, and camels,
It is said, shed tears in streams. -A
cow sold by its mistress who bad
tended it from calfhood wept ptitfuly.
A young .soko ape used to cry tfr"m
vexation if Livingstone didn't nurse 1It,
In his arms when it asked him to.
Wounded apes have died crying, and
apes have wept over their young ones
slain by hunters. A chimpanzee train-

T% St"dy of Medlaete.
The study of medicine is the study
of man and of his relations to his en-
vironment. It is the broadest and
most useful of all the professions. A
skillful physician can find opportunity
for the employment of his highest skill
in a hovel as well as In a palace. He
Is alike welcomed by the king and by
the peasant. The exactions of the phy-
sician's calling are more severe than
those of any other profession. He
must be content to hold all his personal
plans for pleasure, profit or rerecreation
subject to the exigencies of many oth-
er lives as well as of his own, so that
his life must be less regular than that
of other men. He belongs to the social
fire department. He must often Im-
peril his health, even his life, to save
the health and lives of others. r He
must be content with a short life. But
all these disadvantages are Induce-
ments to the man who desires to live
up to the highest and noblest ideals.

The first effect of cold on the skin is
to contract the tiny vowels that comect
arteries and veins. Arteries are ves-
sels that take blood from the heart.
Veins are those that bring blood back
to the heart, and the connecting ves-
sels are called capillaries. While these*
little vessels are contracting the skin
Itself becomes tenser. In a few mo-
ments or minutes the effects change.
The tiny nerves whose stimulation
caused contraction of the capillaries
are more or less paralyzed, and the ves-
sets dilate so the skin gets red. Soon
the veins are dilated, and the skin be-
comes bluish. Then the nutrient fluid
In the skin (the lymph) is coagulated,
and the stretched skin ruptures 'or
"chaps." If the cold Is more severe its
action is deeper, and the blood Itself
may be coagulated. This is frostbite.
