Little Ah Bid
Was a Chinese kid-.
little cuss, you'd deolare,
With eyes full of fun,
And a nose that begun
'tight up at the roots of his hair,
Jolly and fat
Was this frolicsome brat,
ho plad through the long summer day;
' And braided his cue
As his father Use( to
In OhIialand, far, far, away.
Once o'er a lawn,
That Ah Ski played upon,
A bumble bee flew in the spring;
" Melican butterfly "
Said he with winking eye,
Me Catchee and pull off uma wing!
Thea with his cap
lie struck it a rap
This innocent bumble bee,
- And put its remains
In the seat of his jeans,
For a pocket there had the Chince.
Down on the green
Sat the little sardine,
in a style that was strangely demure,
And said, with a grin
That was brimful of siu,
"Mc mashee un butterfly, sure! "
Little Ah Sid
Was only a kid,
Nor could you expect him to guess
What kind of a bug
lie was thlding so snug
In the fold of his loose iltting dress.
" Ki-ya! ki-yip-yc! "
Ahl Si criedl, as hie
Rose hurriedly ip fromt the spot.

Sultan Bollm's Mosque.
Sultan Selim's mosque at Adrianople
is the linort in the Moslem World. Seen

and four tall minarets make It look to
western eves liko a lingo gasometer,

it is worth while spending a day at
Adrianople if only to see the Inside of
this marvelous building. Since the
Russians last came hero and sttamiped
all over the placo with their muddy
boots, the Turks are no longer particular
about requiring Ginours to go in unshod.
A servant brings capacious babouches,
which you drag on over your boots, and
then you skate respectfully over the ex

the entire floor. ''he vast expanse of

domo, the countless painted arches and
colnns and the perfect stillness of the

lamps hang in garlauds from the pil

lighted up for a religious festival, and
when the floor cannot be seen for the
multitude of worshippers all kneeling,
with their heads bent and their palms
on their thighs, the sight, as those who
have witnessod it say, is one never to
be forgotten. This mosque of Selim has
999 windows. and a thousandth which
is closed. The great Sultan had order
ed a thousand windows, and, when he
heard that there was one short, he sent
for the architect and stroked his beard
with an air which boded no good; but
the architect, who leserved to live in
the days of puff advertisements, re

windows would convey nothing of odd

with 999 windows and one closed would

conntected with a stone violet plant
which is carved over its fountain. A
poor man, who owned part of the
ground over which the mosque is built,
refu ed to sell his land unless a violet
w.hich had beetn planted by his wifo was
aliowed to bloom uplou it. The Sultan
accepted the condition, and the violet
wis carefully railed in and tended, but
