Written by One Who Claims to Understand tho Llttlo Croaturos. Few people understand the mystery ot mice. I think I can, without Immodesty, claim to understand mice, for I Jug)nade them a study for manyyears, says a writer in Pearson's. I used to think that nature supplied mice wherever there seemed to be any call for them. For example, if yon live in a house where there are no mice, and in a rash moment provided yourself with a mouse trap, or set up a cat, mice will immediately make their appearance. To the super,'l observer this looks as if nature, perceiving that you have a mouse trap, proceeds to supply mice for it, or noticing that you have a cat, sends mice enough to satisfy the animal. But this is not the true explanation. In order to understand mice you must grasp tbe fact that the mouse is an animal with a keen sense of humor and a love of excitement. With this key in your possession you can readily unlock tbe mystery of mice. The mouse has a sense ol humor Is conspicuously shown by the wsy in which he will rsttle a newspaper in your bedroom at night. The mouse does not eat newspapers, neither does he put them to any domestic nse. He merely makes a noise wit,h them, knowing that of all sounds the midnight rustle of a newspaper Is the one which will most successfully banish sleep from your eyes. If a mouse finds an eligible newspaper in your bedroom he wilt settle himself down to a night of fun and jollity. He will rattU that newspaper till morning, and the only effect of throwing boots at him, or of gettlpg up and lighting the gas and searching for blm with a poker will be that he will hide himself till you He down to sleep and then resume his little newspaper game. It this dees not show a sense of humor it w.iuld be difficult to say what it does Miow. Then there is the melt known tact that no sooner does a mouse trap or a cat enter a house than Tt is followed by a troop ot mice. Cats and traps kdraw mice as the pole draws the mag net Tbe mouse loves the game of teasing the cat by stimulating tbe tatter's hopes of capturing mice. It Is considered the height of fnn among mice to scuttle across a room in the presence of a cat, and to disappear In a hole just as the cat Is ready to pounce. Ol course, now and then a too reckless mouse pays tbe penalty of rashness by being caught by the cat, but accidents of this kind are mote rare among mice than football accidents among men, and in no way render mice shy of tbe game. If you once understood tbe nature ot mice you need have no troubte with them. Banish from your house every cat, trap and newspaper, and not a mouse will show himself. Fill your house with newspapers, traps and cats and mice will flock tq It from miles away. No mouse will fttsra house where no amusement le eftrcd This lesson I have learned, to htm. as I ssld, by years ol study, and it has been confirmed by tho testimony ol several of tbe most Intelligent cats whom I have knowu. Chicago Record. Transvaal Situation. A few summarized statements may be given here in connection with the general situation: I. That a paramount position in South Afiica, as well as the possession of Cape Town, was necessarily involved In the retention of the conquered Dutch settlements in 1815 end in the responsibilities which soon came to England for the welfare ot millions of natives. II. That tbe Dutch farmer, from the earliest days, while loving independence in the form of complete power to do as he liked with his chattels native slaves or servants knew nothing, and in the Transvaal knows less today, of what real liberty means. III. That the famous treks of the Boers Into far away regions were dictated not by love of liberty, but by love of slavery, not by hatred ol oppression, but by dislike of restrictions Imposed upon their oppression of Inferior races. Their treks resembled more the Mormon journey from Illinois to Utah in American history the "peculiar institution" in the one case being slavery, and in tbe other poly gamy. IV. That no resemblance exists between the Dutch and the English relationship in the Transvaal aud tbe French and the English relationship in Canada. In Canada perfect equality exists between the races; in Cape Colony and In Natal perfect equality exists, or did exist until the Dutch latterly obtained tbe upper hand; in tbe Transvoal alone It has not existed for many jears. V. That the British position in South Africa has been from tbe earliest days one of continuous conflict, owing largely to the hostilities aroused by the Boers among the natives; that the former have beeu sjstemsticalty cruel iu their treatment of the natives and harsh In their conduct toward missionaries; and that the bitter com plaints ol missionaries in this connection are to this day the source of sor row to English philanthropists and of regret to Exeter Hall. VI. That, apart from the Boers, tbe troubles In South Africa during many years past have been increased, and in more than one case caused, by the spirit of irresolution introduced from 1850 to 1870 into Imperial councils by the Manchester School ol politicians, and from tbe early seventies onward by men who, though more generally patriotic in thrir views, were still unable to grasp at once tbe difficulties It ser-,vi- c Bd " , Hidden Beauty Endorsed by the Governor CDDCQCUTATIUC w? n UZW K m ssrrtSbssl a vN m mk a a Bradfield's Female Regulator tPHP 1 H If jour liver U out of order, causing Blltoutness, Sick Headache, Heart-buor Constipation, take a dose of a , .

It was one of the longest messages ever delivered to Congress, treating at length tho many grave and dehcato questions demanding the careful attention of the Legislative. Tho President expresses himeelt clearly and forcibly on all of the many momentous questions presented to Congress. CniEF of the President's recommendations to CoDgrcss of the needs of Puerto Rico is general education. In this the President struck the key to the government of any free people. Education is the rock upon which civilization is founded and is the cornerstone of free government and Republicanism, too. Educate men and the cepter of power passes from the sword to the pen. The victory of the battlefield in the light of intellectual day is transformed to victory of the (turfy. The conflict of masses on the battlefield ceases,and the contest of thought against thought, mind against mind, the contest of merit is ushered in. Enlighten man, he is then prepared for any of the duties of civilized hie, his nature is tempered and he approaches the ideal of his Creator. h Congress met Mon The day with momentous questions to be fifty-sixt- In r. considered.

The comments ci the press on the lentil of Robert G Ingersoll lurnish in interesting evidence ot the change f attitude in regard to religious opinions If Ingersoll hnd died a few years go his memory would have been bit terly assailed, and he would have been held up in many quarters as an ex -unple of depravity and unpardonabl irreverence Now, however, his death is recorded either without comment or with praise for his qualities as a man You seldom find him labeled even as in artist. As ft matter of fact, and as every one knows who followed his utterances, Ingersoll was not an atheist. He had no belief, in the orthodox sense of the word, but he did not deny the possibility ot the existence ot a state bejond the grave. He was a perfect illustration of the mean- ing uf that much m sunderstooi term agnostic. The respect with which his memory is treated by good Christians gives an example of Chris tlan charity which cannot fall to impress those people who fol owed Ins gersoll's teachings. It should be noticed here that the growth of Chris tlan charity in this country in recent jears has been accompanied by a decided falling off in the attacks on religion. In lact, there are almost no professional atheists among us now. We may be said to be divided into groups, consisting of those who be lieve, and the attitude of each group toward the other is one of patient tol tr.ition. But at last the sand in the hour-glaof time must run down, of the Christian and the heathen alike, and it is left to a Higher Power to decide whether a man was good or bad Collier's Weekly. ss !! 111 jg Used in Millions of Homes!

It has been officially stated that General Sir Red vera Duller, V. C.will have under his command during the present war in the Transvaal no lewer than 70,000 British troops. This, says Pearson's Weekly, is probably the largest number of men ever placed at one time under the supreme control oi one leader, viewing the fighting strength ol the British army (Europe-anf- ) in the great warsol comparative ly modarn times. At Waterloo the Duke of Wellington had just fewer than 24,000 British troops under his command, while Lord Raglan, in the Crimea, never had more at one time than 26,000 British ers righting under him. In the Indian mutiny Lord Clyde (then Sir Colin Campbell) had but 40,000 troops, with whose assistance and the help ot that portion oi the Indian army which remained faithlul to its allegiance, he i was enabled to quell the most serious outbreak of modern times, Going a little further back, to the time ol the great and prolonged Pen insula war. Wellington thought he was a fortunate rcan if lie could direct an Mtuy corps of 30,000 British troops, while the great Marlborough, at Blenheim, led to victory, and against (ear lul odds, an army of 6, 000 stroug.
