Cracow** Jewish Quarter.
Cracow possesses' the most pictur
esque ghetto in existence. So early
as the fourteenth century a large
part of Its population consisted of
Jews driven from Germany owing to
the persecutions inflicted on them.
Certain quarters of the city were as
signed to the refugees; but, being
pushed from these in course of time
by the growth of Christian population,
they chose the suburb of Kazimiers
for their habitation, and founded an
almost purely Jewish community.
There they still have their old syna
gogues (one of which dates back 500
years), and their own hospitals and
schools. They dress in the' same way
as their forefathers, and speak among
themselves a bewildering mixture of
Hebrew, German and Polish.
Children's Plays Changing.
Watching the youngsters in the
parks during holiday time, I have been
struck by the change that has taken
place in children's games. I hope I
am not unduly pessimistic, but it does
not seem a change for the better.
Boys play. cricket, girls seem to have
no recognized games at all, and the
Impression given the onlooker, is one
of aimlessness and monotony. Why is
it that our boys no longer play "over
buckle," "prisoners' base," "weak
horse," "widdy-widdy-way" and other
like strenuous games which some of
us enjoyed immensely no more than
a decade ago? And why have the
girls forgotten "tag" and "ee" and
"ring-a-ring-a-roses" ?-London Chron
Most Famous Spot in France.
The guide books tell us that the
Place de la Concorde is the most ex
tensive and strikingly handsome
"place" in Paris. This is entirely
true, but it is only another way of
saying that it is the most beautiful
and impressive open square pos
sessed by any city in the world. And
this is not all. Within its bounds
more great events have taken place,
more history has been written in
blood than within any other similar
compass. Here, January 21, 1793,
the head of Louis XVI fell under the
knife of the guillotine, the beginning
of that long procession that ended
only when the revolution had finished
"eating its own children."
Little Sermon for Ail Time.
This is from Charles Dudley War
ner's "My Summer in a Garden:" "The
love of dirt is among the earliest of
passions, as it is the latest. Mud
pies gratify one of our first and best
instincts. . . . Fondness for tho
ground comes back to a man after he
has run the round of pleasure and
business, eaten dirt, and sown wild
oats, drifted about the world and taken
the wind In all its moods. The love
of digging is sure to come back to
him. ... To own a bit of ground,
to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds
and watch their renewal of life-this
is the commonest delight of the race,
the most satisfactory thing a man
Historia Parisian Square.
Before the Revolution the Place de
Ia Concorde in Paris was but a piece
of waste ground. It was often used
for public festivals and demonstra
tions, and in this manner its baptism
of blood was begun as early as 1770.
In May of that year an exhibition of
fireworks was being given to cele
brate the nuptials of the Dauphin and
Marie Antoinette (note the irony of
fate: 23 years later, as the deposed
king and queen o? Prance, both W?T?
beheaded upon this very spot!) when a
panic was occasioned by an accidental
discharge of rockets and more than
twelve hundred persons were crushed
The Reading of Books.
Of one thing I feel quite certain,
that the reading of good literature is
necessary to the growth of the mind
and the strengthening of character,
especially in young people, and that
there is no resource for all periods of
life so helpful, so satisfying, and so
enduring as a love of good books.
Channing well says: "God be thanked
for books. They are the voices of the
distant and the dead, and make us
heirs of the spiritual life of past ages.
Books are th? true levelers. They
give to all who will faithfully use them
the society, the spiritual presence, of
the best and greatest of our race."
George P. Brett, in the Atlantic.
Black First Worn for Mourning, 1498.
Anne, queen of Charles VIII of
France, was the originator of black
as a token of mourning wearing it
upon the death or her husband in 1498.
Contrary to that, the accepted mourn
ing of Europe was white. Black, how
ever, gained great popularity, and was
quickly adopted; so marked was any
deviatfo: from the unwritten law that
Mary Queen of Scots was termed the
White Queen because *?he held by the
ancient custom vhen mourning for
Napoleon's Time of Happiness.
In the clays of the First Consulate,
life tripped merrily at Malmaison.
Those were the happiest days of Na
poleon and Josephine. Often they
visited Malmaison, sometimes quietly,
sometimes surrounded by a brilliant
crowd, but always accompanied by
Hortense, the consul's beautiful step
daughter who was to become his sis
ter-in-law and the mother of the third
The Hearts In Men. ")
Two riverfront wanderers uncere?
moniousJy leaped Into the river to res
cue an unfortunate wonan who took'
her own life. Whether or not these
men were outcasts we cannot know;
The report didn't attempt to furnish
a description of them. But little as
their own lives might le worth, they
did not hesitate to offer what they
had. On the river front one may daily
see little evidences of heroism among
I the discarded members of society and
the refuse' of humanity. Under tat
tered clothes and seared features
beats many a heart which would free
ly spare its blood for others more
unfortunate. A child falls in the river
and it ls a rare day when a dozen
dock wallopers won't begin shedding
their coats for the rescue. It is al
most as difficult to kill the good in
men as it is to suppress the bad.
Our first years at school were not
made easy and joyous to us by
the modern methods of the. kin
dergarten and other similar sys
tems of acquiring knowledge with
out effort, and we thereby es
caped the effects of tho fallacy that
learning and education can be at
tained without pains and concentra
tion of the mind. We were constantly
drilled at school in mental arithmetic
and ether studies of a kind not much
relished, I am told, by the youth of to
day and unfashionable with modern
educators of young children; and at
home we were urged in season and
out, as we then thought, to Improve
our, minds, to contemplate serious
things, and especially and most fre
quently, to read good books, particu
larly those books, which required ef
fort for their understanding and mas
tery.-George P. Brett in the Atlantic.
The Long Engagement.
Long engagements are an injustice
to the girl, and the man, too. It cuts
her off from her man friends entirely,
and unless "the" man happens to have
extraordinary powers of entertain
ment, unhappiness is almost certain to
follow. Not that a girl should be
amused all the time, or the man eith
er, but memories will recur, and after
a long time spent in useless : waiting
with no prospects of change, thoughts
of the others are bound to creep in.
A man is bound, hand and foot, by a
long engagement. He cannot force
success or make an. opportunity out
of the empty air, yet the thought of
the girl drives him on-sometimes to
desperate measures. Of the two, it
would be better to keep . the engage
ment a secret, and not to see each oth
er too frequently.-Exchange.
A successful Moscow merchant
named Spiridonow, who had made a
vast fortune, thought of a novel'way
of inviting the guests to ifr^golden
wedding. The tayitations^ere en
graved on golden cards. When the
recipients opened the envelopes, they
were naturally pleased with the beau
iful invitation, but supposed that they
were only gilded. A closer examina
tion, however, showed that the mil
lionaire had actually sent out cards
of real gold. Mons. Spiridonow
sent in all 200 invitations. The cards
were made by a Moscow jeweler
by a special process, and the
material was taken from a mine owned
by the millionaire. Each card was
worth about $25.
A llllS?and and Wife, ran a freak
show in a certain provincial town, but
unfortunately they quarreled and the
exhibits were equally divided betw?en
them. The wife decided to continue
business as an exhibitor at the old ad
dress, but the husband went on tour.
After some years' wandering the prod
igal returned and a reconciliation took
place, as the result of which they be
came business partners once more. A
few mornings afterward the people of
the neighborhood were sent into fits
of laughter on reading the following
notice in the papers : "By the return of
my husband my ?tock of freaks has
been permanently increased."
Varieties of Sausage.
A German sausage exhibition was
held in Berne a few years ago, and
1,785 varieties were exhibited. The
center of the production is in West
phalia, where 400 varieties are pro
duced. It was there that a young
highly-trained chemist shut himself
in his laboratory find sought fame and
fortune, and he achieved ?both. He
i took unto himself pork, veal, olives,
pepper, fennel, old wine, cheese, ap
ples, cinnamon and herrings' roes,
compounded them with th? skill of
an artist and the scientific accuracy
of a chemist, and evolved' a wonder
I ful and original sausage, the best

Japanese Cages for Singing Bugs.
In the land of the wistaria, the gei
sha girl and the inlaid ivory knick
nack, artistic appreciation is all for.
the subtle, the dainty and the minia
ture, and so it is that the singing in
3ect has come to be an honored in
stitution there. These ? Carusos and
Gadskis of bugdom are eagerly sought
after by the Japanese and everything
is done for their comfort and musical
education. They pass their tuneful
lives away caroling mournful insect
elegies upon their lost freedom, and
staring disconsolately at their delicate
Japanese mistresses through the bars
