"I can pipe, too," he said.
Do you know how a child's eyes look
when he has just learned how beautiful
this Tnst world is, when he feels his wings
Uke a bird, cm the heritage of the sons of
toll has dimmed them? So Tim's eyes
looked that winter night. He opened the
door of the smithy where the members of
the village orchehtra sat at practice round
the blazing forgo. Every.man paused, in
strument in hand, at the sound of the
fearless, shrill young voice.
.Then, smiling, Timhut out the drift
ing snowflakes and stepped Into the room.
The small feet wero shoeless and dark as'
the earthen floor on which he stood. The
clothes he wore hung round his slim form
In grotesque tatters, but abow the tatters
roMj a face such as God m?hc1s into a dark
world now and then. Noble were the fea
tures; the sweep sf the blue eyes was clear
and grand; the curve of tho lips was
proud, vet sweet. From the beautiful
brow waved hair, tawny nnd sun kissed,
on which the glistening snow Ehonu like
stars. -The men had scarcely tiriie to loo"-;
at the child when, raising his pipe to his
lips, ho began to play The wonderful
eyes shone; the slim, brown finger- obeyed
the impulse of the grand soul imprisoned
in tiny- Tim. Strong men laid aside their
instruments and clasped horny hands to
listen. Hero and there n face shadowed.
Now and then a tear was furtively wiped
Tim smiled.os be took the pipe from his
lips, and his eyes turned wistfully to tho
blazing fire. They mado way for him.
They entertained him as if he had been of
royal estate. A small, three leggtd stool
was his throne, and he sat there, pipe
clasped close, as happy as a king. He told
them whence he came, "as far as he knew.
"Over the hills," ho saidr "far, far over
tho hills." They called him Piper Tim in
the caravan, never another name. He had
Then be laughed and stretched his thin,
brown hands with joy to tho blaze. He
could tell nothing mora. Ho belonged to
the "tinkor band, "and tho sound of music
had drawn him so that he lingered to lis
ten while the caravan went on itswayovur
The smith's wife admired the child's
lovely face. His tatters brought tears to
her eyes. Womanlike, she gave him to eat
and to drink. Then the sa' onco more
amazed whilo he played on his pipe ere,
with laughing farewell, he went off into
tho darkness. That night tho smith sat
long dreamingly by the red logs in his
forge Ho sighed as he turned in at the
cottage door, where his wifo awaited him
by tho fire.
"How would it ha' becn,"hesaid, "gin
we'd kept that littlo chap, the piper? Our
bairn would just ha' been aboot his age
gin the Lord had spared him."
There was a note of anxious query in
bis tone, but the starved mother's 4heart
in tho woman cried out:
"El, but 1'vo been sittiu here secin the
.bonny face o' tho bairn in the firelight. 1
thought o' him out there in the darkness
an the snaw wi' the tinkers folk. God
keep an guide him. I wish yo'd spoken
sooner. Keep him 1 Would I ro', wi' you
bonny face, you blithe o'en!"
"When he comes bad. again," the
smith said as he drew his chair to tho
hfarth, and his wife, with a glad smile,
echoed his words.
The schoolmaster placed his old violin
tenderly in its corner that night. He
smiled a littlo bitterly 'as he thought of
his gray hairs and his many years of plod
ding, then of Piper Tim.
"Ho plays as a bird sings," he thought
really. "His heart Is full of music."
Then ho trimmed his lamp and sat down
to' his books.
But tho boy's face smiled from every
page; tho free, fearless voice was in his
ears; the blue, pure eyes shono in the
crackling flames. Tho schoolmaster flung
asido his book and was back in tho old
days, when the hills and the stars and tho
sunshine had been his book, a maiden's
eyes his heaven and the world a world of
wonders. Ho looked at the empty chair of
his dead wlfo, and he thought of sons and
daughters far away.
" If I had kept the lad, " he mused aloud,
''I could have made a man of him, have
saved him from tho tinker's life. He
would have filled my empty home."
Long he dreamed; then a smile of reso
lution curved his lips.
"When he comes again," ho said.
And Piper Tim?
He went on his way that night, turn
ing again and again to look at the long,
bright gleams that fell on the snow from
tho gfeai forest fire. Ho knew his people
were camping in the mountains, and to
tho mountains and tho darkness ho turn
ed his face. Thero was singing in his
heart, there was always singing there, so
ho went on his way merrily. Up, up,
through tho blinding snow, neither cold
nor weary for tho singing in tnat heart ol
his, he watched always for 'the gleam of
the red campfire, but ho beheld never a
The stars shone out serenely. Tim
raised his faco to them. They, smiled into
their twin stars, his eyes, yet still, was

No Mormon wfiinau will talk froiii
ier heart to a stranger, notably and
Msentially when that peron is a gen
tile, (in llcrnioniloin, eveiy one wuo i
not a iloruion is a gentile.) for sbe
knows by sad experience that this
would bnt increase her s-nilerings. Of
all sacrifice- that have ever been exact
ed of the single, leving heart of trne
wife and mother in the name of reli
gion, none can eqnal tboe of polygamy,
which these women were tanght wonld
be practiced thiough all eternity, as it
was "the celestial order of heaven, " an
Under its banefnl influence a wife
lived in the tame honse with her hns
band, surrounded by their children, a
lonely, disconsolate woman. The confi
dence and respect that should have
united tiieir hearts, made one their in
terests, is first defiled and then destroy
ed. She early learns to be silent and
observing. After their evening meal, if
she sees her hnsband make as careful
and elaborate a toilet as their circum
stances permit, she dares not ask him
where he is going. Cut that fear that
ever abides in the heart of every Mor
mon wife eats, cankerlike, at her vi
tality She may try to drive these thoughts
away, she may say to herself, "No;
whatever other men may do, however
they may deceive their wives, my hus
band will be honest and true. He will
not deceive me. " Dp almost to the hour
that she is expected to go to the "en
dowment house" and place the hand
of the second wife in that of her hus
band she gives her hungry soul thii
soothing balm. But ultimately she
must awaken to the fact that no man
can practice polygamy without-becoming
a hypocrite. Many of these women
believe, or tij to. believe, that polyg
amy is a revelation from God and con
sequently must be obeyed
But if any gentile woman will try
to think how she would feel if her hus
band we're to teli her that be is soon to
bring into their borne a second wife to
usurp her place in the family circle
share her husband's aifection, come be
tween her and the man who had been
her all in all for so many years, that
woman will have arrived at a full, per
fect, exact comprehension of what a
Mormon woman suffers. Arena.

Attached to a glass sided box seen in a
bird store window was a placard mark
ed "Weather Frogs." Within the box,
perched on two long wooden rods, plac
ed lengthwise of it and nearer the top
than the bottom, like the higher perches
in a birdcage, were a number of the
weather frogs themselves. Some just
then were brown, and one was green.
They were little tree frogs of a kind
found through Europe, those in the
window having been imported from
When full grown, these tiny tree
frogs may be little more than an inch
in length. They take the color of what
ever object they may be resting on
brown for wood, green if- on a leaf;
placed in a blue glase jar they will be
come blue. Tbey may be heard but not
seen, so closely in color do they resem
ble whatever they may have perched up
on. They are called weather frogs be
cause at the approach of rainy or
changeable weather they jump into the
water, at the approach of clear weather
they come out again.
In captivity the weather frog is kept
in a glass jar or globe, which is cover
ed at the top with a wire screen. Wa
ter is put in the bottom of tbe jar, and
at a convenient height is placed some
thing for the little frog to jump up on.
The weather frog in captivity is fed on
Hies in summer and in winter on meal
worms. Its food must be alive. Weath
er frogs sell here at retail for 20 cents
apiece. Considerable numbers of them
are brought to this country. New

"Have you ever seen a bit of wood
that you couldn't burnt" said an old
sea captain to me the other day.
"Why, lots," I replied, "the brier
root, for instance at least, if it's good
iroHwood, tco.and one or two others. "
"I don't mean those. '"he said. "But
have you ever seen a lot of common
deal that fire had no effect on?" He
pulled from his pocket a morsel of what
looked like white Norwegian deal and
banded it to me. I was surprised at the
weight. "Put it in the gas flame," he
I did eo, bnt beyond a blackening of
the surface there was no effect.
"That bit of wood," went on the
skipper, "was part of the gunwale of
one of my boats. We were whaling in
the South seas and harpooned a big
right whale off the Cape of Good Hope.
Tbe creature sounded, the rope fculed
and the boat was carried down. Proba
bly it was taken half a mile or more
below the surface. The whale rose
again nnd was killed, and a portion of
the boat was recovered from the line
which Etill hung to it. It was tbe pres
tureof the water hardened it like that.'"

being tho most important piece of furni
ture in tho room. But it was only when I
became moro used to the ways of tho
house that I fully realized tho part that
it played. Tho beauty of tho caso had
gained my rcepect nt once the lino and
delicnto inlaying of brass in the polisJied
wood, the brass dial plate, with its quaint
engraving of sun, moon and stars, tho
beautifully wrought iron hands. Thoo
bad tho homage that was their duo lung
before 1 learned tho MiM-rcign power of the
old clock it-elf. Kerything about tho
hou'.o was regulated by it. Tho animals
outside listt-ned for the stroke of the hour
before they began their clamors. Ueorgie

it struck of the allotted timo for churn

Complexion and Hair Specialists.
The brilliant complexions of women in the more exclusive circles of New
York society are .not explained by the theory that associates beauty and idle
ness. In fact, many leaden, of the world of fashion are hard workers. Yet
they keep their good looks even when they are old. How do tbey manage
it? THE HISSES BELL, of 7S Fifth Avenue, New York, themselves con
nected with some of the most noted and honored families in the metropolis,
have answered the question. They have prepared for the use of women in
general, five preparations for improving the complexion and the hair.

There was an attitude of contemptuous
pity in the houehold for the people whoso
clocks did not keep the same time. I had
an" unavailing argument with John on the
subject. Ho admitted that the old clock
was "a bit faster than other clocks" but
he could not ee th.it it was any the worso
for that, and as for its being set half an
hour fast well, it might bo fast by my
tiihe or London time, but it was the timo
they kept in that part. Xo, he couldn't
say who started it nor when it was started.
It had always been like that, as long as he
conld remember. Station time? Oh, no
body went by station time, not even tho
trains. Farmers couldn't tnibt to station
time. And church timo was something
between. It i as all a matter of custom.
In Ireland, ho understood, they wero half
nn hour slow. That wouldn't suit in
Cheshire. .lobn was still young enough
to fuel great pride when ho wore his fa
ther's watch on niaiket days. It was not
ery long since tho day his mother had
iir-t Intrusted bin: with it and had watch
ed with anxious eyes as ho drovo off with
his sister in tho old spring cart. Perhaps
tho most important duty on market day
was that of "bringing back the time." It
was a function as serious as the ancient
ono of bringing home the sacred fire, and
it could scarcely ha e been performed suc
cessfully save by the old silver watch and
tho eldest son of tho house.
Once, during harvest, there was n ques
tion as to whether Georgie might not bo
trusted to go to market. Thero seemed to
be no doubt in any one's mind that ho
could dispoo of tho butter and eggs, but
at last, though the pressure of work was
great, it was John, that went.
'You sec, he had tei bring back the
time," his mother explained; thou, seeing
my look of surprise, sho went on apolo
getically: "Geoigie well, Georgio is only
a lad. He's not Iiko John. I never

for Ills years. They are good children, all
of them, but I should not like to seo any
of them but John bring back the time and
wind the clock."
'The life of tho farm seems bound up
in the old clock," I said musingly. "If it
stopped, I think tho wholo thing would
come to an end."
Mrs. Pimlott stood silent for a moment,
and, as I glunced at her, I saw the shadow
of a memory cross her face. "It did stop
once," she said at last, "many, many
years ago. Our master, you know, bodied
when they were all little ones John and
Ann and nil. He was ill n long time,
weeks and months, and I could think of
nothing, caro for nothing, but that. I
scarcely remembered that I hod children
in those days. And near the end my baby
sickened and died. I had always been
fond of my babies till that timo, but I
never cried when she went. I think I
hardly noticed. I think I would have
let nil the children go if I could havo kept
him a bit longer, and nfterward I never
took no notice of them nor of anything.
It wasn't that I cried or took on. I was
ueer that sort. Neighbors cmne in, and
some one must have minded tho children
and the stock and that, for they didn't die,
but I never took notice, and nt lost some
one went to tho vicar, and ho said he'd
coino and see what ho could do, and he
talked very kind and said I knew where
lo lay tho burden and how the world was
full of trouble,. And the words were like
pebbles against the window. 'And your
littlo children, Sirs. Pimlott.' he said.
'You must rouse yourself for tho sake of
your littlo ones.' And when he had gona
I sat there trying to think what it all
meant, and I thought of the children', but
only to wonder why they wero there. And
suddenly I looked at the clock, and I saw
that it had stopped, and I thought how
vexed our master would have been to see
it, and in a minute something came over
mo like a flood, and I broke down and
cried well, I can't tell you how I cried.
And when I came to myself it bit I felt
something pulling at my aliron, and there
was John and Ann hod crept in, and the
poor little mites were crying too. And
well, tho clock stopping like that somehow
made me seo things different. Our mas

I wish that some one would write an
adeqnate booknpon superstition and
its effects., as distinguished from and op
posed to revealed religion and its
e"Hects. This enrse of the .world, civi
lized or savage, deserves a worthy chron
jcler. Walking round the exhibits in
the Agricultural hall, it was borne irrto
my mind that superstition in all its
hiileons phases is perhaps the most con
crete and tangible form in which the
evil one manifests himself upon earth,
and I think that those "who have mixed
much witB native races will not dis
agree with me.
Heie is an instance of its working
which has jnst come to my notice: Not
long ago two Mntnbeles were tried at
Bnla wayo for the murder of their grand
son, a cjiild of 2. Poison having failed,
the boy was. held beneath the water and
drowned. The crime was admitted, but
the defense' raised was that the child
had cut its top teeth first. Such chil
dren being unlucky and the cause of ill
luck to others, it was cubtomary to kill
them, and a "witch doctor," on being
consulted, had ordered that this one
should be pnt to death! Well, only a
century or so since we did things al
most as bad in England. Rider Hag

An Added Burden.
I was,taking my dinber one day at a
mountain farmhouse on the headwaters
of the Cumberland river, and the lady
of the house, who had four children
playing around the front of the estab
lishment, was. inclined to repine at her
hard luck in having so much work to do.
"I run this here whole farm," she
said in a tone which indicated that she
was ready to resign.
"How many acres have yout" I in
quired. "A hundred and forty 20 in wheat,
60 in corn, 10 in medder an paster,, an
the balance scatterin an woods."
"Got any stock?"
"Ten head nv cattle, two cows, six
hogs an work critters fer the place."
"And you run the whole business?"
"Indeed I do every hide an hair uv
it, she sighed.
"Don't yon hire some telp?"
"In course, but 'tain't hired help
that takes the load of en a body." There
was philosophy in that statement, and
I paused a minute. '
"Haven't you got a husband ?" I next
asked with a good deal of sympathy.
"Yes," she responded Yery slowly,
"but I have to run him too." Waih
He Got the Fees.
Sagar, the verger of Halifax parish
church, was quite a character in his
way. He figured in several good stories
in Dean Pigon's "Phase of My Life."
On one occasion a bridegroom discover
ed after the service that he had no mon
ey with which to pay the fees.
Sagar went to the bride in his most
winsome way and asked her: "Hast
overseen Black Bibles? We've a rare
lot on 'em in this, 'ere vestry."
"No," she replied, not having the
faintest idea of what a Black Bible was.
"Coora along. I'll show yer them."
He lured her into the inner vestry.
"There's the Bibles," he said, point
ing to them, locked up as they were in
a bookcase with glass panels, of which
he had not the.key. "Wait awhile till
I come back.'.'
He turned the key of the vestry on
the bride and, going to the bridegroom
said, "Lass is all right, but you'll no
have her till yon have paid."
