Bruin at Bern®, Every oua immediately asso ciates the mention of Borne. Zwil zorland, with hears, says the Bal timore American. The coal-of cirms consists ot* Ohe of these am mala, and everywhere and on ev erything they appear—in stone and in wool, carved aiul painted, and alive in pits, where they have been maintained at the expense of the government from time imme morial. Fountains are ornament ed with bears; if the fountain it self is not a bruin, one is sure to be found in the vicinity. A statue of Berthoid vonZohringen surmounts a watering trough, and by him stands a small bear, with a sword hanging by its side, and acting the part ot helmet-bearer. Sunday afternoon the entire pop ulace, old and young, dress in gala attire and visit the pits. A double row is formed around tKb railing; each person purchases carrots or bread to throw the pets, whose elephantine-like gambols provoke shouts of laughter from the sur rounding' multitude, They real ly are most musing animals, A deep tank is in the centre of I,ho den, and while we were present a regular wrestling match look place between two hoary old fellows, in •which tho great struggle was to throw one another into tho water. At last one succeeded in giving his opponent a thorough ducking, and then sat on the brink eyeing his defeated adversary, his head on ono side, and rubbing his im mense paws, apparently with the greatest enjoyment. . Ono of the lookevs-ou declared that ho grinn ed and chuckled, but serious doubts may be entertained as to \ the veracity of that statement. Quaint and Curious.

M K em arkable Team of I\orses. George Fnrnsworlh of North Brulgton, Me., has a team that is worthy of notice. Mr. Farnsworth teams grain from South Paris to North Bridirton, a distance of fif teen miles, making several trips a week, besides doing other work with his team at home, The fact of interest, about this team is this, Ihe united ages of the three horses are eighty-two years; the leader js thirty-two, and lie has been in pos session of the owner a great many years; the pole horses are each twenty five, and Mr. Farnsworth has had them for the past seven- teen years. They are of Morgan blood, and in the days of their youth few horses could out ride them. The throe are in good con dition, fat as work horses ought to be; are almost free from hiemishes, good eaters, apd seem good for many years of service yet, A Faithful .Servant. A lady living alone in Maryle borne, London, England, with very few, if any, friends or rela tives, was fortunate enough to win the attachment of a servant, who stayed with her fourteen years. If turned out, when the will was op ened, that the lady had left all she possessed of to the favorite domes tic, fitter her death, on condition, however, that she should visit her grave and spend at least ten min utes in every year during her life. I he fortunate legatee’s friends liv ed in tho North, near Carlisle, and she returned to them. She fulfils the terms of the will, however, by coming up the last night of every second year to London. She goes to the churchyard ten minifies be fore twelve, Her visits to the grave ar® thus made every two years, and yet t.ie conditions of the will are kept.—New York Observer. Boy Bullfighters. Itw:b, perhaps, be hardly credited that at San iSebsstian, Spain, bull fighto are arranged between child to -1 readers of 13, 14 and 15 yews old, and bulls of 2 years.

Hair Heyleeted Soon becomes dry, harsh, coarse, unit full ol dandruff; it loses vitality ami turns prematurely gray, or falls out rap idly mui threatens early baldness. A careful U cessing daily with Ayer’s llnir Vigor best preparation for the pur pose—-will preserve the hair in all its luxuriance atul beauty to a J?oo<l old age. “ My hair was failed and dry.” writes Mabel Hardy, of Delaware, 111., “hut aficr using only half a bottle of Ayer’s Hair Vigor it. became black anil glossy, 1 cannot express the gratitude I feel.” Frederick P. Coggeshnll. nookseller, M Merrimack St., Lowell, Mass., writes: “Some six or seven years ago my wife had a severe illness, in consequence of which she became almost entirely bald and was compelled to wear a wig. A few months since she began to apply Ayer’s Hair Vigor to the scalp, and, after using three bottles, lias a good growth of hair started all over her head. The hair is now from two to four inches long, and growing freely. The result is a most gratifying proof of the merit of your admirable preparation.” * Ayer’s Hah Vigor, Prepared by Hr. .1. C.
