Dinner was a thing unthought of
in the house that day, and my undo
lunched meekly at one of the china
closets off cold meat and bread and
preserved strawberries, while Ad
die and I actually ate rose leaves
and sugar and cream as a suitable
pendant to the work in which we
were engaged. Nothing less ethe
real would we partake while fitting
up that poet's chamber. By 4
o'clock that afternoon our labors
were ended. The house* was like

night. Trains alwayB art J ite when

ourselves into a feverish state that

gate. The poet had cornel
He climbed out of the carriage
like a crab, sidewise, and, coming up
the graveled walk toward the front
door, presented to our admiring
eyes the figure of a stoutish, middle
aged man, with dark eyes and hair
and a very p?easant smile. He did
not wear a Spanish cloak and a
sombrero. He was clad in linen
garments and thatched with a rough
straw hat that had evidently seen
service. We heard him as he came
ip the walk.

He helped himself to an ice.
There was no reply. The two
gentlemen resumed their political
discussion, waxing so warm in tho
defense of their favorite views that
.thoy were in a fair way to clear the
tray between them. Addie caught
up tho contemned volume of poems
and vanished from the room. I fol

like a fairy, and I found.her in the

from the vases with frantic haste.

I burst out laughing and ran
downstairs. The contrast betweon
our dreams of the poet and the poet
as he was was rich. I had to wait
a moment in the hall to get my faco

pushing open the half closed door,
I went back into tho parlor.
At first sight I thought it was
empty. The chairs were pushed
away from the table, and there was
a faint smell of cigars. Had they
actually been smoking there? K"o*
I heard my uncle pacing up and
down the garden, as was his wont
each evening, and the fragrance of
the weed came that way, but he was
alone. Where was the poet ?
I caught sight of him at lp't, sit
ting at the open window with the
rose colored curtains falling in soft
folds around him. The moon was
up, shining gloriously upon tho
grassy yard beneath him. The night
wind rustled in the leaves of tho

sight of my uplifted finger on tho

An Ancient Belief Coup'ed With Mod
ern Scientific Decrees.
The Etruscans of old- believed in
three kinds of lightning?one inca
pablo of doing any injury, another
more mischievous in its character
and consequently only to be issued
with the consent of a quorum of
twelve gods, and a third carrying
mischief in its train and for which
a regular decree was required from
the highest divinities in the Etrus
can sines. Curiously enough, mod
ern scientists, following the lead
taken by Arago, have.also decreed
that the varieties of lightning are
threefold. The first comprehends
that in which the discharge appears
like a long luminous line, bent into
angles and zigzags and varying in
complexion from white to blue, pur
ple or red. This kind is kLown.as
forked lightning, because it some
times divides into two or more
branches before reaching the earth.
The second differs from the first
in the range of surface over which
the flash is diffused. From this cir
cumstance the discharge ;a desig
nated sheet lightning, and if any
real parallel can be instituted'be
tween the Etruscan and modern va
rieties this may be said to corre
spond with the innocuous ligjhtnirg
which any single god of Etruria
could launch at his pleasure.
The third class are not only re
markable for their eccentricities,
but they have been made the sub
ject of considerable contention.
They differ so widely from the moro
ordinary manifestations that many
meteorologists hr.Te denied their
right to be treated as legitimate
lightnings. They neither assume
the form*of long line3 on the one
hand nor of sheets of flames on the
other, but exhibit themselves as
balls or globular lumps of fire*?
Ancient Foot Coverings.
If we are to judge of the foot cov
erings handed down to us as relics
from the courts of France, Spain,
England and Germany, we can but
conclude that for an extremely long
period of time, probably eight or
ten centuries, the dressing of the
human foot has been, even in the so
called civilized countries, but slight
ly different and only in degree from
the customs of the followers of Con
fucius for thousands of years.
Fortunately for art, unfortunate
ly for the history of civilization, so
called, the artist of olden as well as
modern times has not copied except
in portraiture the cramped foot, the
narrow toe, the elevated heel and
the piDched instep, which have long
accompanied the human foot. It
seems reasonable to suppose, how
ever, that the Roman artist and
critic and the Grecian as well fully
attempted to give us the perfect
foot as found in the well developed
Grecian woman of the day.
The sandals worn at the time
when Borne was in her ?plendor
were undoubtedly so constructed
as to afford ample opportunity for
the development of the foot and
exhibit the beauty of its conforma
Moral Effect of Diets.
An exclusively pork diet tends in
fallibly to. pessimism. Beef, if per
severed in for months, makes a man
strong, energetic and audacious,
says Pearson's Weekly. A mutton i
diet continued for any length of
time tends to melancholia, while
veal eaters gradually lose energy
and-gayety. The free use of eggs
and milk tends to make women
healthy and vivacious. Butter used
in excess renders its users phleg
matic and lazy. Apples are excel
lent for brain workers, and every
body who has much intellectual
work to do should eat them freely.
Potatoes, on the contrary, render
one dull, invidious and lazy when
eaten constantly and. in excess. To
preserve the memory even to an ad
vanced age nothing ia better than
Great Men Who Danced.
The ancients regarded dancing as
a necessary accomplishment. Soc
rates learned the art in his old age,
whilo Plato in.his "Commonwealth*'
advocated the establishment of
dancing schools. The Romans cele
brated their victories and pastoral
festivals by elaborate dances. They
excelled in pantomime dances, from
which the ballet was evolved. The
Emperor Domitian forbade the sen
ators to dance and for so doing re
moved several members from the
senate. Grave statesmen and poli
ticians of "high degree have excelled
in tho oldest of the prts. r?

Women Cannot or Will Not Under*
stand the Customs Laws..
While he admits that our customs
regulations are ' odious and more
rigid than those of any other coun
try in the world, William ?. Curtis
declares that tho greater part of the
trouble of which returning travelers
complain is due to their own folly
in endeavoring to elude the vig
ilance of the inspectors, for people
who aro detected in tricks always
have to pay the penalty. He aaya :
"People cannot be mado to under
stand that every article they have
*pui chased abroad, no matter what
it is or who it is for or what they
paid for it, must bo taxed according
to the laws of congress. If it is
only a glove or a photograph or a
little memento of insignificant val
ue, it is required to pay duty, just as
if it were brought in by the carload.
That law was made by congress and
not by the inspector who meets you
at the dock or the collector of cus
toms, to whom he is subordinate, or
tho secretary of the treasury, who
frames the regulations. But aver
age travelers seem to be unable
to get it out of their minds, particu
larly the women, that the inspectors
who examine their trunks are im
pertinent and offensive, intruders.
"Travelers returning from Europe
can get through tho customs easily
and cheerfully it they will exercise
a little patience and do honest and
candid. If they are looking foi
trouble, they can find plenty of it,
but it is a great deal better for them
to accept the situation, obey the
law and avoid quarrels with the in

Sulphur In the Mineral Kingdom.
Sulphur occurs very widely dis

FOUGHT WITH POTATOES, j
A Duel In Which a Preacher Demol

A duelist, like many another man
who takes himself too seriously,

man and stipulated that his oppo

time should bo taken from tho
The desperado was furious at be
ing thus insulted and made an in
dignant protest, but Bowman re
minded him that the challenged
man had a right to choose his own
weapons and threatened to de
nounce tho desperado as a coward
if he failed to come to time. As
thero was no way out of the box but
to fight, the desperado consented.
The light took place on tho out
skirts of the town. Everybody was
