'   .'    .  An  Eskimo I,ej;������*n<l  of the Haven.  Tlie following fable of how lhe raven  became black is common to every Es-  kimo household: Once upou a time (ail  their stories begin in this way) the owl  and raven were fast friends. Iuderd.  tbey were so intimate that they spent  most of their time together and had  'things in common, like brother and.sister.  One day the raven mnde^a dress of  dapple wlii.te and black forMhe owl,  and tlie latter, uot ,to' be outdone in  generosity; made a pair of nice whalebone boots and presented them to the  raven and, uot content with this,, went  to work upon a white dress. - When  tlie raven was asked to try it on. she  merrily ran and skipped nhout nnd refused to sit still.  "lie quiet a little while!" cried the  owl angrily. "If you dou't, I will spilt  the liimp'over you!"  lint the raven paid no attention to  the threat and continued-to tease lhe  owl.  At last, in his vex.ilion, the owl dashed tlie sooty oil in tlie lamp over the  white suit of the raven and cried out,  "Qua qua:"  From that day the unfortunate raven  has worn a black coat.���������San Francisco  Call. '   When tlie Covrboy la n Hero.  "I am very fond of the genuine cowboy, now fast disappearing." says Iter.  Cyrus Townsend Brady, narrating bis  experiences as "A Missionary In the  Great West" in The Ladies' Home  Journal. "I've ridden and hunted with  him. eaten nnd laughed with him.  camped and slept with him, wrestled  and prayed with him, and I always  found him a rather good sort���������fair,  honorable, generous, kindly, loyal to  his friends, his own worst enemy. The  impression lie makes when he rides  through a town in a drunken revel,  shooting miscellaneously at everything,  is a deservedly had one, I grant you,  but you should see him on the prairie  in a "'round up' or before a 'stfimpede.'  There he is u hero:"  How Expresse* Drop Men,  "While coming from Chicago "last  week," said a prominent business man  to a Mail aud Express reporter, "I noticed a peculiar railroad custom which  interested me considerably. I happened to be in,the last car of the limited when the train stoppecTin a desolate spot between stations. The rear  hrakeman, of course, dropped oil aud  went down the. track with a flag to  warn any train that niight.be followiug  us. In a moment or'two we started up  again, but minus the brakeman.' I  wondered at this, hut was still more  surprised later on to, see the same  thing repealed when we were obliged  to stop on account of a threatened hot  box. ' Upon inquiry I found that this  was the custom on fast trains. 'Some-  time's, if we have lots of time,' said the  conductor, 'we whistle for tho men to  conic in,0 but in mose cases wo leave  them, to be picked up by the next train  or to walk to tho nearest station.'  " 'But isn't that rather hard on the  men?' I asked. 'Oh,,it's all part of the  business,' he replied. 'I have known  of cases where men dropped off iii this  way were frozen to death or waylaid  by'tramps, but the railroads have to  make the',time, and thafs-wliy.it is  clone. I have seen trains running with  onlv a conductor aboard them, at times  because the rest of the crew had been  left behind in just this way.'" ;  " What  la n  Mystic?  "���������'  ' What'is a mystic? The dictionary  gives ,us an answer perhaps, but one  wants in' at thousand .cases something  more than the dictionary. "We like to  make definitions ourselves. This is.a  stronger tendency than" \vc suspect. A  mystic is a man wlio makes. Ills own  definitions.., ���������     ',    ,  I knew a man many years ago In a  country town where 1 lived who was  a typical nonconformist and an example ofself reliance. He was withal  a man of strong character and did not  ask anybody's good opinion. He was a  cabinet maker and always spiled bureau "buro." A man to whonjr.he sent  a bill said to him; "This is uot the-way  Webster spells bureau." , "Well," said  he, "this is the'way I spell it, and 1  have' as' good a right'"to my way as  "Webster has to his." Ue was a mystic  iu orthography.  ".Ye must he born again." That -was  mysticism to Nicodc'mns.' ' His dictionary-didn't explain' it." Jacob Keunien  called the same thing "the-morning  redness." That, too, defies the dictionary. Swe'clenborg calls love.'.'fire" .and  beyond all others in modern times  makes definitions of his own. All poet3  are to some extent mystics, inasmuch  as they express Uiemselvcs in symbols  aud metaphors.���������Coining Age.  Another  Menu  Man.'  "Stimson" is a mean man."  "Why so?"

In Spoiri there are some 10,000,000 of  migratory sheep! which--every year  travel as much as 200 miles from' tlie  plains to the "delectable mountains,"  where the shepherds,feed them till the  snows descend. These sheep are known  as transhumantes, and their march,  resting places and behavior, are regu-,  Iated' by ancient and special laws nnd  tribunals dating from the fourteenth  century. . ,  At certain times no one-is allowed to  travel on the same route as the sheep,  which'have n'right to graze on all open  and common'In ud on the way'nnd Tor  which a road 00 yards-Wide must 'lit'  left on all inclosed and private property. The shepherds lead the flocks, the  sheep follow, and the Hocks are accompanied by mules carrying provisions  nnd large dogs which act as guards  against the wolves. The merino sheep  travel 400 miles to the mountains, and  the total time spent 011 the migration  there nnd back Is 14 weeks.���������Spectator.  Prnctfcn! I'oIJtlert  f'orv f 11 fan In.

Roses  were opening on  all  sides, aud  here  rind there a late daffodil still lingered  ,   to make the red roses jealous with.its  simpler beauty.  Among the trumpets of the convplvu-  ��������� lus sat the rightful king.   lie was not  in state robes, uor did he -wear any  outward insignia of, royalty. ������ Indeed  he wore a suit of decent'and serviceable corduroys and a soft felt hat, Which  he   found   more, comfortable   than   a  crown.. On the'bench by his side was  a  pile of parchment deeds and legal  looking papers. '       ���������  - ' Tlie rightful king sat with his hands  hanging loosely and a vacant, soulless'  stare in his watery'old eyes.'3 His lower lip bad dropped, and his whole face  was absolutely' destitute'" of. Intelligence! For the moment one- saw a  mere statue of flesh and uo more.  Suddenly footsteps were heard ap-'  proaching, and there was a tinkle of  feminine laughter coming through' the  ilovvers. ' A light began to flicker back  ' Into the lunatic's face, making-it weak  indeed, tiiit;not mere^brute, as It"had  been before. Two young .ladies, In  cool summer frocks,' accompanied by  a tall young man in tweeds and with,  the ribbon of an Oxford college on his  hat. came walking down the gravel  path, Iaus:hlug ns they .came.  The rightful king became violently  agitated. Lie shook with eagerness,  aud a yearning came into his,eyes like  the pleading look of an unfoudled dog.  ."Would Miss Brenmiil notice him?"  That was the great question. His posf-  tion. as rightful king was, he well  knew, oue. which was not well estab-  ' lis!ied.'  ' Many of tho other Inmates or the  nsyliuu resented it nnd wished' to attract notice for.themselves nnd 'their  foolish whims by minimizing his Importance.  The visitors came up.- "This, Lucy,"  said Miss .Breminil,., the chaplain's  daughter, to her frienu>"this, Lucy, la  the rightful king of England."  "If I had my rights, miss," said the  old .man, "I should be a-sltting on  Queen Victoria's throne now."  . "Incidentally," said, the young man  fro m.Ox ford,."ho fills up his time doing  a little' gardening. Your majesty la  fond of flowers?"-    -    .  "That  I   bo,  sir," said the rightful  king, .touching his hat, forgetting his  dignity or perhaps finding the habits^  of his former life in the world Without  the walls too strong for hilli.   '  "When I comes into my own, tiilss,"  he went on, "you shall have all the dl-  llioli's out of the Tower of London, t  shan't,Want 'em!"  Ilia Voice sank a little tttld grow thill.  The momentary animation died away  from the foolish face. He could not  think of anything more to say. ' He began to whistle.  The three young people looked at him  pilyiugly, aud then, with a word of  farewell, passed on their way.  "I 11111 coming as far as tho end of  tho gardens, dear," said the chaplain's  daughter to her guest "I've uo doubt  Mr. iVnser will sec you over the  Heldd."  The young inrtti gave hot* a. look of  deep gratitude. "Wonderful tact," he  thought to hinlself.  1 "I hope you've not been tutide miserable by going over the asylum." said  Miss Lircuunil. "Of course, 1 mil quite  Used to it, and it doenu't affect me as It  must tiETcct others."  "It is rather depressing," said the  GIrion girl. "I dare say you'll think  mo unfeeling and horrible, but If persons bocolne hopelessly insane���������really  hopelessly, you know���������I can't help feeling it would he belter for them and for  everybody else if they Were painlessly  put out of the way."  "You haven't lived among mad people, as I have," said the chaplain's  daughter quietly.   "You'd be surprised  how sensible many of them are and  how good also. I don't suppose that  poor old rightful king'ever had aii unkind thought in his life. lie's a dear  old thing and is always bringing me  flowers,   lie's devoted to me."  '���������Aren't any of the, lunatics violent  sometimes?" inquired the young man.  "Oh, none ou this side of the build-,  ing. They are harmless. Dangerous  cases are kept in n separate wing. You  can just see the roof over the trees.  Of course I'm never allowed to go  there."'  "How terrible it rill seems!" the Gir-  ton girl, said as they entered the last  long n venue, "which led them to the  hillside beyond.  The sun betran to make ready to slip  behind the hill, and it was now what  the' Tennyson   student   colled   'T.Iow.  bugle, blow." lime. They arrived aft  tlie stile. They trined to look back'  down tlie ' long ��������� and leafy avenue  through which they had conic. It was  all Irradiated with the long, level glow  of ihc*. sunset., A tiny black figure at  the far end. which seemed to be moving toward them, gave the scene Just  that Ilitle necessary note of human  contrast which made It perfect.  They said good night, and the Girtou  girl strolled away" into the purpling  shadows, 'where she was destined to '  hear what she had never suspected���������  that" love is,' after "rill, the only "higher  mathematics worth the' attention of a  girl with soft hands and,wavy hair.  Miss Bremmil walked slowly'hack,  thinking' placidly of their little romance. Suddenly, she heard footsteps  at her side. Some one had come but  from,the trees and was pricing with  her: She turned hurriedly toward the  sound. A man was walking-by her  witli a peculiarly gliding, springy step.'  He vyns very tall, with'a dark aud rather sinister face. Hi* was dressed In  the. uniform of lhe asylum, only with  one difference���������on his head he wore a  yellow cap and round his arm was a  broad band of yellow clotli.  Siie shrank hack with a sick terror  flowing round and round iier heart like,  ley water. The man whs one of the  "dangerous" cases, and she was alone  with him at nightfall, too far away'to  scream for aid. She "was paralyzed  with,fear. Suddenly he turned ou her  with a swiTt snarl, like a treacherous  animal. '��������� He caught her by the arms  and carried - her to the uenrest tree,  leaning her against. It!'      .'  "I've wanted something like, this'for  a long time," lie saltL ��������� She observed lie  had the, voice and accents of a' gentleman. , lie took a long strip of cloth  from his,pocket aud made her fast to  the trunk of the'tirtree with it.   -  He drew a table kiilfe from-his pocket. The avenue was now almost dark.  As he came up to her a sound of  singing came from among the trees,  foolish, wayward singing. In a -broad  Gloucestershire accent. They distinguished the words:  "1 b* the'rightful klnfi '  1 Of ''upland, merry l.njrland."  Early in the afternoon the rightful  king bad been digging in a plantation  of larches, lie had left his spade aud  was now coining to fetch It. '  Miss Hremmil heard lhe voice and  gave oiu* cry for help." The knife was  dangerously near Iier. ' Tin* rightful  king enine shambling up. He stnv'the  girl tied lo the tree nnd the nian with  the knife, lie flung himself upou lhe  mailman' with' a great cry of pity and  anger. _ '  They rolled over rind over on the  ground, struggling flcrcely, but at last  the old mau was mastered. "He was no  match' for the other's' demoniac,  strength. The girl saw the knife rise  and fall, and then the air wng suddenly .  full of whistles and red dancing lights.  There were' crowds of people pressing  round her, ntid she fainted In her fa������  ther's arniR.  The   body  or the  rightful  king lay  upon  the swnrd.    There was  nothing j  poetic nhout it.    In death It wns even j  more foolish than In life. '  ."Poor old rightful king!" said one of  the   keepers.    "He   filed _ for   tnlKsy.  Who'd   have   thought   It?'  He'8 goue  from his kingdom now."  "This is his-coronation day." snld the'  chaplain gently.���������Mnlnly About People.
