FINDS A  BIG  RAFT OF TIMBER  ���������forkshrntman   Gets   a   Rich  Treasure  From the Sea.  A remarkable piece of flotsam in the  ���������Siape of a giant raft containing over  seventy tons of timber and about eight  tons ot iron chains, steel rails and  ytates, has "been washed up *by the sea  at Reighton Gap, near Filey, on the  .Yorkshire coast.  The discovery was made by a beach  prospector named Jesse Smith. It wad  ���������wedged well in among the rocks, and  consisted of great balks of pitch-ping  ���������Shirty-four feet long and seventeen  ���������inches square, with others twenty feet  -a^ng-across-the-ends:  The balks were bound together with  fathom on fathom of chain, and were  also bolted with steel rails and protect-  ������d at both ends with steel plates.  The wood Is as good as new, but the  fironwork is very rusty, and It was evl-  <fl������nt that the wreck had been in the  sea for a long time, for clusters of mussels and barnacles were on its under  aide.  It-came Immediately from the north,  from which direction the sea had been  Tunning strongly for some days, but ���������  -reasonable assumption ls that it haa  fceen adrift In the track of the shipping  Jta the crowded North Sea as a dan-  "Terous derelict, and there ls no telling  tiow black the record of its wanderings  ���������may *���������*>���������.  Indeed, a Filey fishing yawl reports  tliat aha ran on ton of it ad Friday  wrenlng, six miles away TTro.ni tha  arlace whero It finally went ashore. It  "was then awash, and was not seen till  ������h������ -vessel had run half her length up-  ���������n It. The boat careened, but happily  (the raft sagged with the yawl'a weight,  tand allowed the craft to shake clear.  Had it been a high speed steamer in-  ������������������Kmd of a Ashing yawl, her bottom  plates would have bean stripped oft like  the bark of a tree.  What the great piece of wreckage haa  tbeen Is not clear. It may have been a  ���������coffer dam or gantry or tho (bottom ol  a floating dock.  It Is a splendid find for Smith, who,  tky -right of ddRcovory, becomes Its own-  er. It has been secured by chains to  <Uja boulders, which, at tha spot, art  <many tons In weight.  wi '      mmtammmmammmmwMmmm  Admiral Douglas.  Admiral  Sir Archibald  L.

One Queen Anne Timepiece to Be Seen  In Toronto Is 300 Years Old and  Is Without Hands.  There are some rare old clocks In Toronto. It may interest the public to  know that one man in -the employ of a  big jewelry firm in that city spends  three days of every week in visiting  private residences, business houses, ana  factories, to wind up the big old clocks  that are kept as heirlooms or  curiosities in these places. Half of his  time every week is spent in making  the round of these places, and winding  and regulating their old timepieces. He  says that the majority of the clocks  keep remarkably good time, too, when  one takes into consideration the fact  that they have recorded the flight of  ages for so long.  Quite a FaaT    ���������     ���������-���������  Call It whim or fad or fancy, or what  you like, but the fact remains that  many of the best and biggest families  In Toronto have a penchant for rare  old clocks. The older the clock the better. If it has "dwelt In. marble halls"  In some age of the dim and .distant past,  they value It so muchn the more. A  family heirloom of this variety is  treasured most carefully.  So great has this fancy grown on  soma of Toronto's families that It la  commonly reported that they go traveling on the Continent, and buy some  old clock that strikes their fancy. It Is  then brought home and Installed In the  family residence, The European dealers  In curiosities have learned of this, and  they play on the Ignorance of the buyers.  Old Case, New Works.  The story goes that a Toronto man  went traveling to Europe, and In ������  French shop he thought he had discovered a vory ancient and rare specimen  of a timepiece. He bought It for a good  big figure, and when he got back in  Toronto was humiliated when an expert on clocks Informed him that he had  been duped. The clock he had bought  was a new one throughout���������new case,  now works, new everything���������tout It was  dona In tha old style, and after an old  design. Well, perhaps It doesn't matter much, and the uninitiated may never know tha difference between tl*o old  and the new, "but it must make that man  uncomfortable when ho look at the face  of that French clock,  In ono shop In Toronto at the present  tlmo there la an old clook mado In the  time of the -*wii" Qi**������������n Anne of England. Three hundred years old, and cor-  lalnly a curlnNlty. It Is made ot brass,  and the weights and pundulum are entirely exposed to view. The clock Is  not meant to bo caned. It hangs on the  wall, und tho face and works are en-  cloned partially In a llttlo box-like  structure. Th* ro ia no minute hand  traveling around Its face. Still, It has  two hands, one to Indicate Hie hours,  nnd the othor to Indicate whero to not  tho alarm. The dial Is divided Into  qimrtfr-hour sjnieen.

Black lead Is the substitute, and It serves the purpose much  better than oil rrould.  The old grand-others' clocks that aro  so universally popular frequently come  in for repairs. T'r.ore are more of them  than of almost any other type.  A \ eU With a Hlxtot-y.  The bridal veil is evidently of eastern origin, being a relic of the bridal  canopy held over tlie heads of tlie bride  and bridegroom. Among the Anglo-  Saxons a similar custom existed, but if  the bride was a widow it was dispensed  with. According to Sarum usage, a  fine liaen cloth was laid upon the heads  of the bride and bridegroom and was  not removed until the benediction had  been said.  The old British custom was to use  nature's veil unadorned���������that is, the  long hair of the bride, which was so  worn by all brides, royal, noble and  simple. Only then did every one behold the tresses of maidenhood in their  entirety and for the last time, as after  marriage they were neatly dressed on  the head. Among some the tresses were  cut and carefully stowed away on a  woman becoming a wife. It was customary in Russia for village brides to  shear their locks on returning from  church.  The Precept ot Idealist*.  Listen to the old men seated upon  the benches in tlie towns or during  their walks in the parks. Listen to  those who are in the midst of life, in  the thick of bitter conflicts and heart  sickening struggles. Listen to the women who have been married these several years. What discouraging remarks! Vanity,of vanities! All these  people have -filed their reports, and,  worn out, without the courage to put  the ideal into life, it ends in inevitable  and horrible bankruptcy. But in all  this it Is not life which is at fault. It  is man. You must supply what is  missing. Let us, then, to the profess-  ors of the ideal. Their precept is  very simple. It resolves itselTinto flJST  "Be prepared for difficulties, but be  faithful in the little triings, and you  will attain the great ones." It is by the  very little steps that one rises slowly  to tho summits.���������Charles Wagner in  Harper's Bazar.  Old RellRlona Rites.

LEWIS  Copyrtaht, 1906, bu McClure, Phillips <fc Co.  The New Yorker silver mine, located in Mexico, but owned aud worked  by Americans, had been in running order a year before Jose Fa vara put in  an appearance. He had been heard of,  however. He wns known as a cattle  stealer, a claim jumper nnd a general  outlaw, and it was the popular belief  that he stood In with the police. At  any rate, they had not interfered with  his operations to any extent, and ho  walked the streets of the town as free  as any other mnn. Oue day Jose appeared at the mine. He walked  straight to the superintendent's office  and, doffing his hat, said:  "Senor Barnes, I beg you to excuse  me. My name is Jose Fa vara. I  should have called on you weeks ago,  but have been busy In other directions.  I am now here to do business with  you."  "Well, what is your business?" queried the superintendent, although he  had a pretty fair idea of it.  "To arrange to draw my monthly salary, senor."  'Tor performing what services?"  ���������'For leaving your mine in peace."  "In other:words, you mean to levy  tribute on us?"  "The senor hits the nail on the head  at the first blow. My terms are $200  per month in cash. I shall call for it  myself. If accepted you will be under  my protection. If not"���������  "You will make trouble for us?"  "The Senor Barnes hits the nail  again. I like to do business with an  Americano."  Jose Favara was told that he would  have to wait a few days until his proposition could be submitted to the president and board of directors in New  York. He, was agreeable. He went  away bowing and ���������smiling, and Mr.  Barnes sat down and wrote a letter.  The proposition was extortion pure  Tffld~Simpler*"The-^iJthorities-eould~be"  appealed to, and would doubtless do  something. Nevertheless the fact remained that Jose was a bigger man  in that district than the authorities.  He could harry and harass. He could  scare every peon Out of the miue in  two weeks. He could capture every  mule and driver engaged in transporting the ore over the mountains. He  could do lots of things to make the situation unpleasant, and the superintendent recommended that a monthly  salary be paid. He added that $200 por  month was dog cheap.  The president and his board looked  upon it as a rather funuy case, but followed the advice of Mr. Barnes. From  that time on for two years Jose Favara  regularly appeared on the 10th of each  mouth and received his "salary,"  Twice during that time the peons would  have struck for higher'wages had he  not appeared and threatened them  with his vengeance,' A Mexican lawyer  discovered what he thought was a flaw  lu the title of the New Yorker nnd  would havo made cost and trouble had  not Jose sent him word that ho was  after his scalp. It was couccded that  tho outlaw earned his wago.  Things wero going ou satisfactorily  when tho old presld**nt dfeil and Mr.  N< rvoly was elected In his place, While  tlio dividends woro large, Mr. Norvely  wanted to increase them. IIo saw a  way to tlo it by lopping off and cutting  down. A cut of 10 por cent was mado  In wages and salaries, und tho $200 per  month to Jose Favara wus cut oif entirely.  When Mr, Barnes wrote that this  move would bring troublo, ho was directed to arm his staff and fight. When  be nskod for rifles a dozen old con-  tlomueil Springfield muskets woro sent  bim, but not a single cartridge, Ho  wrote for cartridges, but was answered  that the president would soon tako a  trip to Moxlco in his prlvato car nnd  would visit the mine and glvo further  instructions in person, Mr. Nervoly  bad beon known in trade as a bustler,  As president of a silver mine ho deter*  mined to be a bummer,  Jose Vavara called, tt* usual, on the  10th of a certain mouth to ho told that  bis salary was nix. He had boon dls*  charged. Mr. Barnes entered Into particulars with him, even to stating the  probable date of the arrival of the  president, Jose was impassive and  Imperturbable. Ho smiled tho same  old smiles and bowed the sumo old  bows. lie knew be had earned bis  nioiiev, hut If he felt sore ho gavo no  sign of It, He wont away saying that  bo might call again, nnd things went  ou as usual for threo weeks.  Theii President Norvely arrived, It  was twenty miles over to the railroad,  and he hud to make this distance on  tho buck of a burro, but ho made. It.  He arrived at the irTltie at n oVJock In  the afternoon. At o the peons en mo up  from tho shaft and announced tbat  there was a strike on. Thero were  100 of them. Next morning Jose Fa-  vara appeared. Ha wanted to know  If bis ft-jlnxr wag to bt restored,.  President Nervely flattered timself  that he was a fighter. If not an actue*  fighter, then he was a good bluffer. He  had been bluffing for thirty years nnd  had the art down pat. The miners  might strike, and be hanged to them.  They might be out for a week, but they  would then be tumbling over each other to get back. As for Jose Favara, he  was an outlaw, a blackmailer, an extortioner. Not another cent should he  draw from the treasury. If he made  one little move against the peace and  harmony of the New Yorker tlie rhaj-  ���������jsty of the law would be Invoked and  be would find himself behind prison  oars. He was talked to In the purines  English. Mr. Nervely talked lu a lou  voice. He conveyed the idea that h  owned the earth. Wheu he had tire<  hlmsolf out and was taking a res  Jose quietly asked:  "Am I, then, to understand that m*  services nre no.longer required?"  "Of course you are,"  "But about this strike?"  "I can settle it without your help."  "Aud as to what I may do with m.  band?"  "Poof. Look here, ray mau, let m>  give you a pointer: Don't come mon  keying around here unless you ar  aching to get hurt. If the law won*  protect us we will protect ourselves  Do you savey?"  The outlaw did. He bowed and smil  ed and to#k his departure. It was i  cold bluff, and he meant to call it whei  the proper time came.  "Do you think he will try to make ui  trouble?" asked the president of thi  superintendent when Jose had depart  ed.  "Sure to."  "I don't. I think I bluffed hlra out  However, there are the muskets."  "And not a cartridge for one o:  them."  "Cartridges are awfully expensive. !  think that empty muskets will do tin  trick. Nothing like a bluff if you rul  it in hard enough."  The strike had lasted four d"ys, witl  all quiet around the mine, wuen Josi  Favara rode up. It was early in thi  morning, and President Nervely wai  eating a picnic breakfast. The outlavi  had thirty men with him, and each anc  every one had a business look abou  kh-n-  "When  the senor is  quite througl  "������������������wTtirTSrlSIffaT^^^  him,"  was the message  sent to tin  magnate.  Ten minutes later he appeared nno  ordered the outlaw to go way back anc  sit down. He was seized, bound anc  carried off among the mountains. Hi  called for help, but there was no help  He yelled "Police!" "Fire!" aud -���������Mu'r  der!" by turns, but the staff loft be  hind numbered only five men, and the*  had no cartridges.  An hour Inter President Nervely wai  at the outlaw's headquarters. Tw<  hours later he had got over bluffing nnc  was inditing a telegram to a New Yorl  banker. Tho telegram asked for $10,  000. The money wns forwarded to ������  town designated, and a week after thi  abduction it was in the bauds of Jost  Favara, and President Nervely was sei  free within half a mile of tho mlno t(  find his way in. At the hour of his ar  rival tho strike wns called off.  "Didn't I tell you what tho man coulc  do?" asked tho superintendent as thi  president came staggering In.  "Yes, but I thought ho could bo bluff  ed.

Only One Side of the Moon.  Did you ever stop to consider the fact  that tlie inhabitants of this earth have  never seen but one side^ of the moon  and to inquire the reasons why such  should be the case? The explanation Is  this: The moon makes one revolution  on her axis in the same period of time  which she consumes in revolving once  around the earth. Thus the same geographical regions of the moou are always toward us. One explanation usually calls for another. Therefore it may  not be out of place to remark that the  astronomers believe that the two motions so nearly coincide because the  moon is not a true globe, the earth's  influence having elongated the lunar  world in the days when it was semi-  liquid or at least soft  TELESCOPES.

V%e   Difference   Bct-rreen   Reflecting  and Refracting Kind*.  A very pretty little experiment which  illustrates the two methods of forming  an optical image and by way of corollary illustrates the essential difference between refracting and reflecting  telescopes may be performed by any  one who possesses a reading glass and  a magnifying hand mirror. In a room i  that is not too brightly illuminated pin j  a sheet of white paper on tb������ wall op  posite to a window that by preference  should face the north or away from the |  position of the sun. Taking first the  reading glass, hold it between the window and the wall parallel to the sheet  of paper and a foot or more distant  from the latter. By moving it to aud  fro a little you will be able to find a  distance corresponding to the focal  length of the lens, at which a picture  of the window is formed on the paper.  This picture, or image, will be upside  down because the rays of light cross  at the focus. By moving the glass a  little closer to the wall you will cause  the picture of the window to become  indistinct, while a beautiful image of  the houses, trees or other objects of the  outdoor world beyond will be formed  upon the paper. We thus learn that the  distance of the image from the lens varies with the distance of the object  whose image is formed. In precisely a  similar manner an image is formed at  the focus of the object glass of a refracting telescope.  Take next your magnifying or concave mirror, and, detaching the sheet  of paper from the wall, hold it nearly  In front of the mirror between the latter and the window. When you have  adjusted the distance to the0 focal  length of the mirror, you will see an  image of the window projected on the  paper. By varying the distance as before you will be able to produce at will  pictures of nearer or more remote objects. It is in this way that images are  formed at the focus of the mirror of a  reflecting telescope.  Though there were but two herds of  Ayrshire's represented nt the recent national dairy show in Chicago, they are  commended as being perhaps the highest class exhibit of the show by the  Breeder's Gazette, which says:  The cows were the sensation of the  show.

We'll skip it, reader; for it would look  neseetuly to begin a story with an oath  like that Gas Gurley swore, standing  over his wife's dressing table that morn-  inir. And Gus wasn't a swearing man  either.  How came he, then, to commit such a  broach of etiquette and ethics? Well,  may be you wouldn't havo done it; but  don't be too sure till you've heard enough  to bo able to "put yourself in his place."  Imagine a young husband of six  months' stnnding.ardent, fond and trusting, casually entering his wife's dressing-room in her absence, and stumbling  on a mischiovioua-looking, rose-colored  note, freshly opened, a cupid in every  crease, and a lurking lock of another's  hair���������rod���������peeping stealthily from ita  folds!  The very paper blushed guiltily as  Gus caught it up. Eagerly and wildly  his eyes ran ovor the contents. For a  moment he stood amazed rend motionless, and then broke out���������. But we've  promised to skip that, Perhaps any  othor man would have givon utterance  to au much, reading such a missive as.  this, addressed to his wife:  " Affinity, Aug. ���������th, 1ft���������,  "Deakkst Rati* :���������Ho'w coulil you go anil  marry thut Kront bulky fellow belilnil my  bank, anil without a word of notice ?  "Though I've roturned too Into to forbid tho  bans, I'm still in timo to give that lord and  muster of yours a bint���������which I miian to do-  that an older love than his won't quietly sutler  another to monopolize its rights.  "Expect me by Monday, and keep a kiss ton  '���������'Your ever ftitectiouate      Sam Smith."  Smith! Smith! Sam Smith! Faugh I  What a name! Had it been Brown,  Jones or Robinson, there might have  been some bearing it. But Smith! And  red-headed, tool "Frailty, thy name ia  woman I" Yet it might be that Smith  was some presuming puppy, whose vile  epistle was the sheer result of his own  impudence. But no; tne wife that  could receive such a communication and  conceal it from her husband eould not  be else than false.  Smith's heart's blood was the verv  leaBt atonement the case admitted of.  Had Gus been more collected, he might  probably have bided his timo and taken  his peace-destroyer unawares and theu  "tripped him," trusting to an intelligent jury and proof of a mental alibi to  bring him out all right. But he was  aot sufficiently rational for that, and sc  Adopted the foolish plan of summoning  Smith to mortal combat.  6 ..ib had a friend, Captain Borax, a  retired quartermaster,thoroughly versed  In points of honor. Tho captain was  jnt-t the man for the emergency; but, as  ill luck would have it, he was out of  town for the day.  That no time might be lost, Gus de  tnanded satisfaction by mail, direetin-*  his challenge to the address indicated in  the caption of^mit"H'8~Tio"toTTm"d^xing-  r time and place at which his friend,  Captain Borax, would bo prepared to  confer with any friend of Smith's. At  the same time a brief message to Mrs.  Gurley explained that important busi  /.ess necessitated her husband's absence  for the next fow days. . Moartwhilo.  Guo took np quarters at an obscure  country inn, leaving everything to the  management of the captain, whom ho  had succeeded in finding at last, and  who, proud to be (-ought for such a Be:.-  vice, promptly repaired to the appointed  fendoKvouR. where he was punotuallj  niet by a friend of Smith's., The preliminaries wero speedily settled, and a  mooting was arranged for the following  morning.  As the time drew near, Gus grew nor  vous. The fiM't is, Smith's alacrity hnd  taken him a little, aback. V.'c had felt  quito conlidont that that miscrnant  would shrink from encountering tlto  man whose honor ho had outraged. Di:!  instead, without turning the word,  Smith's second had chosen pistols, and  named ton pnecs r.s tho distance 1 It wns  plain the wretch was as bloodrhmity hn  unscrupulous. Besides, Gus wm no  shot, which Smi'h, judging from his  choice of weapons, no doubt wns. How  much butter, Gns began to think, to  havo fled forever from the eeeno of his  unhappinosi*. or to havo invoked the benign aid of the laws of South Dakota.  But it was too latti now to retract.  From a troubled slumber, Birch as con-  dwnuod criminals are apt to fall into in  the last hours of thoir last night, Gus  wan startled hy a sensation ns of a bullet pioroing his thorax, It was only  Captain Borax poking him in the ribs,  by way of reminder that his "hour had  lUinoi-t nii.h'',"  In a brii'f space���������how vory brief it  .-p^iTi."!-f>M"/ wore on tho fatal fit-Id  At rip-nly tho Hame instant a elo'io car  ringo drove u*>, containing tho enemy's  party.

Siguor Lugo, overreached himself  by starting out on a ten dollar admis-  &lon baste, and the venture was a flnan  cial failure, notwithstanding Pattl's  great artistic success. She sang to a  fourteeu hundred dollar house on the  first night and on the second to $400.  She got discouraged, as it was her own  venture, and guve It up.  The late Henry B.

It was my  unpleasant duty to keep as near as  possible to.the royal party in all the  festivities of that week.  The ball in the prince's honor at the  Academy, of "Music was one of the  great social events of the century. No  fair of vanity in the western hemisphere ever quite equaled it. The fashions of the French court had taken the  city as had the prince���������by unconditional  surrender. Not iu the palace of Versailles could one have seen a more  generous exposure of the charms of  fair women. None was admitted without a low cut bodice, and many came  that had not the proper accessories.  But it was the most brilliant company  New York had ever seen.  Too many tickets had been distributed, and soon "there was an elbow on  every rib and a heel on every toe," as  Mr. Greeley put it. Every miss and her  mamma tiptoed for a view of the  prince and his party, who came in at  10, taking their seats on a dais at one  side of the crowded floor. The prince  sat with his bauds folded before him  like one in a reverie. Beside him were  the,Duke of Newcastle, a big, stern  man with an aggressive red beard; the  blithe and sparkling Earl of St. Germans, then steward of the royal household; the curly Major Teasdale; the gay  Bruce, a major general, who behaved  jiimself always like a lady.   Suddenly  ncsses hung liigh above them, their  noses nodding over our heads. We stood  awhile looking up at the looming  masts, the lights of the river craft.  "Guess I'vo done some good," said  he, turning into Peck slip. "Saved two  young women. Took 'em off the streets.  Fine women now, both of them���������respectable, prosperous, and one is beautiful. Man who's got a mother or a sister can't help feeling sorry for such  people." '  the floor .-sank-beneath" tlTe~crow3~of"  people, who retired in some disorder.  Such a compression of crinoline was  never seen as at that moment, when  periphery pressed upon periphery and  held many a man captive in the cold  embrace of steel and whalebone. The  royai party retired to its rooms again,  and carpenters came In with saws and  hammers. The floor repaired, an area  was roped oil for dancing���������as much as  could be spared. The prince opened  the dance with Mrs. Governor Morgan,  after which othor ladies were honored  with his gallantry.  I saw Mrs. Fuller in ono of the boxes  and made haste to speak with hor. She  had just landed, having left IIopo to  study a timo in the conservatory of  Loipsle.  "Mrs. Livingstone is with hor," said  she, "and thoy will return together ih  April."  "Mrs, Fnllor, did she send any word  to mo?" I Inqulrud anxiously. "Did  Pho glvo you no message?"  ' "None," sho suid coldly, "except ono  to hor mother and fathor, which I  have sent in a letter to them."  I loft lier heavy hoartod, wont to tho  reporter's table and wrote iny story,  very badly, I must admit, for I was  cut deep with sadness, Then I on me  away and walked for hours, not oaring  whither. A grout homesickness hnd  como over ine, I felt as if a talk with  Uncle Eb or Elizabeth Itrower would  huvo given ino iho comfort I needed.  I walked rapidly through dark, deserted streets. A steeple clock wns striking li whon I hoard somo ono coining  hurriedly on tho walk behind me. I  looked over my Hhoiildor, but could  not mako hhn out In tlio darkness, and  yot thoro wus something familiar in  the Ktop. An ho oiiino nearer I felt  his hand upon my shoulder.  "Bettor go homo, Brower," ho said,  ns I rooognlzod tho voice of Trumbull,  "You've boon out u long tlmo.

S soon as Lincoln was elected  the attitude of the south  showed clearly that "the irrepressible conflict" of Mr. Seward's naming had ouly just begun. The  Herald gave columns every day to  the news of "the coming revolution,"  as it was pleased to call it. There was  loud talk of war at and after the great  Pine street meeting of Dec. 15. South  Carolina seceded five days later, and  then we knew what was earning, albeit  w*e saw only the dim shadow of that  mighty struggle that was to shake the  earth for nearly five years. The printer grew highly irritable those days and  spoke of Buchanan and Davis and  Toombs in language so violent it could  never have been confined in type. But,  while a bitter foe, none was more generous than he, and when the war waa  over his money went to bail the very  man he had most roundly damned.  I remember that one day when he  was sunk deep In composition a negro  came and began with grand airs to  make a request as delegate from his  campaign club. The printer sat still,  his eyes close to the paper, his pen fly-  Tn^aFhTgh spedT*-"TEe~OTlOTeT3"6Wtor  went on lifting his voice in a set petition. Mr. Greeley bent to his work  as the man waxed eloquent. A nervous  movement now and then betrayed the  printer's irritation. He looked up  shortly, his face kindling with anger.  "Help!   For God's sake!"..he shrilled  "litre, hoy, I'U iolic those pupen,"  impaiiofiny, ma iiiiii-ih n.ving in tne mr,  Tho printer seemed to bo gasping for  liroath.  "Go and stick your hond out of tho  window nnd get through!" ho shouted  hotly to the mun,  Ho turned to his writing, a thing dourer to hini than a new hone to u hungry  dog.  "Thon you may como nnd toll mo  what you want," he added In n milder  tone.  Thoso woro days whon men mild  what thoy mount, and thoir moaning  had moro fight In It than was roally  pollto or neoossnry. Fight wns In tho  nlr, nnd before I know It thoro wns n  wild, dovnstiiting spirit In my own  bosom, insomuch that I mndo bnsto to  Join a local regiment. It grow npuco,  hut not until I saw tlto first troops on  their way to the war was I fully deter-  mined to go und glvo battle wltU niy  regiment.  Tho town -.vrie- nfXre with ftntrlntUm.  Sumter hnd fallen. Lincoln hnd issued  his first, call. Tho sound of tho fifa  nnd dr *rn rang in tho streets. Men  guvo up work to talk nnd listen or ga  into the sterner business of war.

The .aoldiejs. filed out upon the  pavement,'th*e*pp*?irice having kept a  way clear for them. Still there was  silence in the crowd, save that near ma  I could hear a man sobbing. A trumpeter lifted his bugle and sounded a  bar of the reveille. The clear notes  cleft the silent air, flooding every  atreet about us with their silver sound.  Suddenly the band began playing.  The tune was "Yankee Doodle."^ A wild,  dismal, tremulous cry camo out of a  throat near me. It grow nnd spread  to a mighty roar, and then such a  shout went up to heaven as I had never heard and I know full well I shall  never hear again. It was like the riving of thunderbolts above the roar of  floods���������elemental, prophetic, threatening, ungovernable. It did seem to me  that the holy wrath of God Almighty  was in that cry of the people. It was  a signal. It declared that they were  ready to give all that a man may give  fdr that he loves���������his life and things  far dearer to him than his life. After  that they and their sons begged for a  chance to throw themselves into the  hideous ruin of war.  I walked slowly back to the office  and wrote my article. When the  printer came in at 12, I went to his  room before he had had time to begin  work.  "Mr. Greeley," I said, "here Is my  resignation.   I am going to the war."  His habitual smile gave way to a  sober look as ho turned to me, his big  white coat on his arm. He pursed his  lips and blew thoughtfully. Then he  threw his coat in a chair and wiped  his eyes with his handkerchief.  "Well, God bless you, my boy," he  said.   "I wish I could go too."  I worked some weeks before my regiment was sent forward. I planned to  be at home for a day, but they needed  me on the staff, and I dreaded the pain  of a parting the gravity of which my  return would serve only to accentuate.  So I wrote them a cheerful letter and  kept at work. It was my duty to interview some of the great,men of that  day as to the course of the government.  I remember Commodore Vanderbilt  came down to see me In shirt sleeves  and slippers that afternoon, with a  hanxlkerchief-tied~about-hls~neck���������in-  place of'a collar���������a blunt man of simple,manners and a big heart, one who  spoker his mind in good, plain talk, and,  I suppose, he got along with as little  profanity as possible, considering his  many cares. ,  He called me "boy" and spoke of a  certain public man as a "big sucker."  I soon learned that to him a "sucker"  was the lowest and meanest thing in  the world. He sent mo away with  nothing but a great admiration of him.  As a rule, the giants of that day wero  plain men of the people, with no frills  upon thorn and with a way of hitting  from tho shoulder. Thoy said what  they meant and meant It hard. I havo  heard Lincoln talk when his words had  tho whiz of a bullet and his arm tho  jerk of a piston.  John Trumbull Invited McClingan, of  whom I had told him much, and myself to dine with lilm an evening that  week. I went In my now dross suit-  that mark of sinful extravagance for  which fate had brought me down to tho  pounding of rooks under Boss McCorniick. Trumbull's rooms wero a fenst  for tho eye���������aglow with rod roses. Ho  Introduced mo to Mni'gurot Hull and  her mother, who woro thoro to dlno  with us, She was a slight woman of  thirty then, with a faco of no striking  bounty, but of singular sweetness.  Her diirk oyes hud a mild und tender  light In them; her volco n plaintive,  gentle tone, tlio llko of which ono may  hear rarely If over. For years she had  been ii night worker in Iho missions  of the lower city, and many nu unfortunate hud been turned from the  way of evil by her good olllcos. I sat  beside hor at tho table, and sho told  mo of hor work und how often sho had  met Trumbull lu his night walks,  "Found mo a hopeless boutheu," ho  remarked.  "To save him I hnd to consent to  marry him," sho suid, laughing.  '��������� 'Who hath found love Is nlrendy in  heaven,'" said MeCllngnn.

The Milkmaid Sleeve���������Lace Wrlatleta  and the Flirtation Veil.  The milkmaid sleeve is a variation  of the elbow length. It ends ha an  upturned cuff of pure white lawn delicately embroidered in white thread  and is matched by a chemisette of tho  6ame fabric. This new sleeve will appear on coats as well as on gowns.  Very smart are the lace wristlets for  wear with short sleeves, and the dog  collar to match is also a smart addition.  If you have any garnet jewelry in  old fashioned bettings wear it upon  every occasion when it will be harmonious. The rage for garnets is a recent  Parisian fad.  The flirtation veil is one of the summer vogues. It is three yards long  and made of washable chiffon so fine  In texture that it would make Peter  Pan ashamed when he holds his lost  shadow up to the public eye. The ends  are hand painted in large flowers, and  a painted border extends down both  sides.  Never before have veils and veillnga  by the yard been obtainable in color-  ouiarr out expensive new silks of the  season.  There Is a net for summer gowns  that is stunning. It is like a coarse  mesh of the black and white face veils  that are being worn. A lace for trimming comes to match the all over net  buttonholed at the edge. ���������,  The baby's bonnet illustrated Is of  drawn taffeta silk fashioned into something of a continental shape. Tiny  plaitings of chiffon soften tlie edge of  the brim. A rosette of satin ribbon  and wide strings of the same adorn  this dainty chapeau.  JUDIG CHOLLET.  i  SENTENCE RHYTHM.  IdloayncrttfilcH of Writer* and Speakers In Thin RcNpeet.  All experienced writers and speakers  manifest a personal peculiarity in tho  rhythm of their sentences. The writer  Indicates this by the recurrent lengths  of his sentences and the speaker by  his interpretation. Most of us are unaware of the fact that we have a normal length of sentences and that we  retain this length when possible. Recent Investigations have discovered  this fact, and the evidence is indisputable. The successive sentences admit of variations, but the average  length of sentences of any ordinary  author Is claimed to be ascertainable  from the reading of any 500 lines of his  typical works.  In English prose and poetry the  thought is of the most importance and  the form of expression is but secondary. In chanting and in music the  thought ls subordinated to the form,  and in these forms of expression the  rhythm is much more prominent than  in prose or. poetry. It is aesthetically  displeasing to have too much made  of rhythm in reading prose and poetry,  but the highest manifestations of art  are present when the rhythmical form  is used to express the thought. We do  not like to have that which Is most  important subordinated to the less important, but our aesthetic natures  crave rhythm, and when the best expression of thought coincides with the  production of rhythm we respond at  once with enthusiastic approval.-:Walter Dill Scott in Talent.

But there is an economic side of the  question that should not be overlooked,  says D. M. Carr in Home Trade Advocate. The resident of a community,  should be active in furthering the interests of the place he calls home. He  ls working contrarily to his own good  when he sends his money to the distant city for supplies ho knows can be  secured in his home town.

Irish moss is used as-a foundation for  many desserts in the dietary kitchens  where especial dishes are prepared for  invalids. An authority on the question  of seaweeds states that scurvy, the  draad of sailors, caused hy the absence  of potash in the salt mc.it which forms  a part of every ship's provisions, would  be ameliorated by the liberal use of sea  moss jelly, which is rich in potash.  Irish moss has always a place In the  medicine chest of the old fashioned  housewife, Who pins her faith to its  healing properties for colds, sore  throats, etc. On the coast where tho  moss Is gathered and also in the majority of Irish families the moss is boiled,  strained, boiled again with lemon juice  and sugar, until it is of the consistency  of sirup. It is taken hot, a teaspoonful  at a time, and is said to be a very good  remedy for the maladies referred to.  The Indians use the ashes of seaweed  for granular swellings. It is also used  by the Chinese, and so highly is it prized by them both as a medicine and a  food that it Is gathered in some parts  of the Pacific coast, principally at Monterey, and sent back to China.  The supply of seaweed of every description seems inexhaustible, as that  pulled or reaped from the rocks is replaced by another and a more luxuriant  growth the following year. On the Atlantic coast it is harvested only during  the months from June to August, but  at Monterey it is gathered eveiy day all  the rear around.

Anaemia is just the doctor's name  for bloodlessness.   Dr. Williams' Pink  Fills tor Pale People  actually make  new   blood.   Can any cure  be  more  direct or certain?   Blood is bound to  cure   bloodlessness.     Dr.    Williams'  Pink Pills cure anaemia just as food  cures hunger.   They cured Mrs. Clare  Cook, a young English woman who recently came to    this   country   from.  Portsmouth, England, and is at present residing at Prince's Lodge, Halifax  Co., N.S.    She  says:  "I am  ah  enthusiastic believer, in the value of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills as a cure for  ���������aTa"SffiiiT^"^hM~~sutfered*~fr6m~the-  trouble almost from childhood, but a  tew years ago it developed into a severe type of the trouble.   My skin was  pale and waxy; my lips seemed bloodless, and my entire system was run  down.   I    suffered   from   headaches,  dizziness and weak spells,   and   my  friends feared that I was going into  a decline. I tried tonics and emulsions  but without  benefit.   Then a friend  who had   used   Dr. Williams'   Pink  Pills for the same trouble advised me  to  try them.   In a short time  they  began to help me and In a couple of  nionths I was Quite well,   the   color  having returned to my face, my appetite improved and I   had   gained   i"**  weight.1   I can strongly recommend  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to all anaemic  girls and women."  The pale anaemic person needs only  one thing���������new blood. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills do only one thing���������they  make new blood. They won't cure  any disease that Isn't originally  caused by bad blood. But when Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills replace bad blood  with good blood, they strike straight  at. the root and cause of all common  diseases like anaemia, headaches and  backaches, rheumatism, Indigestion-,  neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, kidney  trouble and the secret troubles that  every woman knows hut none of them  like to talk about, even to their doctor*.
