THE SOUL'S LANGUAGE.
Scad in my eyes, dear love ! for speech is cold
Sly hopes and fears ia fullness to convey;
These blissful moments arc too bright to stay.
And irords of passion must remain untold.
O mom! whose glory changeth into gloom!
O feet ! too fleet to fly the Acinn shore !
O beaming glory! set to screen some secret doom!
Beyond this life there lieth something more.
Say, doth serencr, sweeter bliss await
Earth's mated souls, who may not love declare?
In newer Life, will they bo mated there?
Death nor the grave can bring me dread nor HI;
More kind than life; Oh, come and quick distill
Kcpenthe's draught, down by the golden gate.
Luther G. Itiggs, in Arkansaw Traveler.
HOSPITALITY IN THE HIGHLANDS.
Deaa Stanley's Cordiality An Old Manor
House .Delightful Drives.
I tvos once traveling in a Highland train
"when atsomo obscure little station among
the hills I heard my name, and looking out at
the -window I saw Dean Stanley and his wife,
the Lady Augusta. They called mo to get
out and go with them to their cousin, tho
inastei of iTcgginch castle, but I was bound
on an inspection of consulates. I was consul
general at tho time for the kingdom, and
made a sort of diocesan tour of my consulates
every year. Besides, I did not know the
cousin. But the Stanleys assured me I would
bo welcome, and I promised to return the
next day on theii invitation. I did so, and I
was more than cordially received, for this h
the hospitable fashion of the Highlands, -lly
friends were entirely free to ask their friends.
The dean took me to some famous ruined
church, and, full as lis was of antiquarian
and ecclesiastical lore, he made the most de
lightful cicerone imaginable. At night, as an
especial favor, I was put into the ghost
chamber, for I always asked to sleep in the
haunted room. But no historic chado ever
returned to disturb the slumbers of the dem
ocrat from the New World.
In Devonshire I remember that Lord
Fortesque tool: a party to an abandoned
manor house belonging to his family, quaint
and venerable and incturesque in appearance,
with architecture and scenery and associa
tions all in harmony. The servants had
brought lunch with them and devised an im
promptu table; they spread the cloth in tho
old baronial hall, aid there on tho uucarpeted
floor and under the rafters, laid in the time of
the Henry, with ivy and wild flowers grow
ing in tho open casement, tho modern asisto
crats made merry in the halls of their ances
tors. Time would fail me to tell of tho meets of
tho hounds, of the tramps over deer forests
and grouse moors, and through partridge
covers; of tho yacht parties on Highland
lochs, of picnics in the valleys of Northumber
land, of dances on "Welsh lawns, of the bishops
who took me through their cathedrals, of tho
lunches at hospitable mansions, where room
was often made at table for lialf a. scoro of
unexpected guests; abovo all, of the delight
ful drives with my hostesses in their own
phaetons. These drives were almost always
offered to the strauger once at least on each
visit. It was then that I appreciated most tho
delightful simplicity of the best of the high
born English women, tho sometimes unsus
pected cultivation and cleverness, never pa
raded and only on intimate occasions liko
these betrayed. Then they told mo what I
wanted to know of English etiquettes and
more important customs, and asked me in re
turn about America. I never went for one
of these ilrives that I was not sorry when it
was past. Adam Badeau in New York Sun.
How to Keep a Koom Cool.
The composing room of The Picayune is
.situated in the upper story of its publication
house, just under the roof, and in summer is
cAtrenicly hot. An inspiration seemed to
have come to one of the oppressed occupants,
and, in accordance with it, a vertical wooden
box was constructed in tho corner of tho
room, with openings at the floor and ceiling,
and furnished with a pipe for supplying
water at the top, and a pan and drain at the
bottom for receiving the How and carrying it
safely away. The supply pipo was bent over
tho upper end of the shaft, and fitted with a
nose like that of a watering pot, so as to deliver
a shower of spray instead of a solid stream. On
connecting it with the service pipo the move
ment of the water was found to cause an ac
tive circulation of the air in that part of the
room, which was drawn in at tho upper open
ing of the shaft and issued again cool and
fresh at the floor level.
The most surprising thing about the experi
ment seems to have been tho effect of tho
-water in cooling tho air to a degree much bo
low its own temperature. With ilississippl
water, which when drawn from tho service
pipe indicated a temperature of S4 "degs., tho
air of tho room in which tho thermometer
at the beginning of tho trial stood at 90 dogs,
was cooled in passing through tho length of
tho shaft to 74 dogs., or about J0 degs. below
the temperature at which it entered and 19
degs. below that of tho water which was used
to cool it Of course tho absorption of heat
by the evaporation of a portion of the water
accounts for its refrigerating effect, but tho
result seems to have been so easily and inex
peudvely attained that tho experiment would
bo well worth rotating in other cases. Now
Wanted Kdison'n Gelatine Shirt.
Some tune ago an American wag wrote an
an account of a gelatins shirt that Edison
had invented. It was said to be made of thin
sheets of gelatine, each sheet to bo taken off
when soiled; and there were enough sheets to
make the shirt last a year. This yarn was
printed in various newspapers, and at last in
Brazil. 'The gullibility of tho South Amer
ican may be nppreciatl," said ilr. Edison in
a recent interview. uwhen it is known that
soon after the shirt story met their eyes the
Brazilians began to send me drafts and
checks for shirts. One idiotic diamond dealer
sent me n draft for "100 on the Bank of Eng
land. He wrote that ho didn't know how
much the shirts were, but he did not think
they ought to cost over 100 apiece."' New
"thiiip Could Get Away from 111 in.
"One of tho amusing things about tho
fight,"' said Col. Goodnow, as he gazed at tho
panorama Battle of Atlanta, ''happened un
der my eye. Sergt. King, of my command,
in tho heat of tho light, came on to a t of
false teeth that had dropped out of tho mouth
of a poor fellow who had been shot He
picket 1 them up, showed them to me, and said
he didn't propoeo to let anything of that kind
getaway from him while gold was worth
$1.75. He was as unconcerned about it as
though death was not being dealt on every
side." St Paul Pioneer Press.
At on? of the recent school examinations
the scholars of tho intermediate grade wero
required in physiolosy to locate tho liver.
Evidently they knew, for tho answer of one
girl was this: "The liver is situated south of
the stomach and a little to the right of it"
The question is, ought hha to bo marked

Descrvo Honorable Mention.
The Misses Shannon, of West Newton,
Mass., deserve honorable mention in these
days of selfish delusiveness. The two ladies
own a splendid residence at Bar Harbor, and
have roofed in a spring on their grounds,
from which a boy serves glasses of tho pure I
and delightful water to everyone that passes.
