lie looked up at the stars with me:
"Let's make a wish," he said.
"Last summer he was six," said he.
"I wish my kitten wasn't dead.
I wish that all the stars I see
Away up there above my head
Would drop down here to me tonight,
So I could set them 'round to light
My room when I'm alone in bed."
I I smiled at what I heard him say,
I Ana lie looked down and smiled;
B What foolish, vain desires may
Be cherished by a child
And yet perhaps God turned away
And wondered at the wild,
Vain wish I made that night I, too,
May yearn as foolish children who
I Would have the stars around them piled.
I New Utah Geography.
I Professor Marcus Jones of this city has,
.villi much care and vast labor, prepared a
I upplementary volume for Utah of Farr and
H WcMurray's Geographies, a neat volume of

Dr. Conan Doyle has been unable to
find a publisher in Holland for his booklet
on the Boer war. Dutch publishers are out
side the copyright convention, and a rule
of the association governing the trade is
that when one firm announces its intention
of issuing a translation of a foreign work
no other house may produce that book for
eighteen months. A leading Dutch pub
lisher having stated his decision to issue the
translation of Dr. Doyle's pamphlet, with
out, apparently, any real intention of doing
so, no other firm may take it in hand. The
work being thus "hung up," the English
house, Smith & Elder, have posted 3000
copies to State officials, professors, clergy
men, burgomasters, and editors. The book
is published in this country by McClure,
Phillips & Co. New York Times.
