Iii ancleut times tbe Arabians were a
powerful race, and aided materially In
the development of the world,' They
carried thescloiiccs.tspeclally Chemistry,
to a high degree of excellence; and yet,
curiously enough, they stumbled upon
most ot their discoveries while searching
tor impossibilities. They entertained
many curious notions and beliefs, and
from the Egyptians they derived tbe
idea that a stone could be formed, which
would turn to gold all substance with
which it came in contact.
Acting on this supposition. Alchemists
spent their lives In trying to discover the
philosopher's stone. Year after year
they Ehut themselves in lonely moss-
grown towers their only companions tbe
greutblack letter-tomes of Assyrian love,
over which they pored from morning till
night and from night until morning.
Year after year they tolled on with un
wearied patience and untiring z:al, until
their heads grew gray with age and their
bodies bent with care. . ,
But all their labor was lu vain. No
one succeeded in finding tho magic
stone. They were nevertheless held
in reverence by the Moorish kings, and
by the gay cavaliers of Granada, who
paid them almoBt worshipful homage,
lor king and cavalier realized the impor
tance of the bright, glittering gold with
which they might, some day, be supplied.
When the beautiful Moorish city fell
Into the bands of the lair haired Chris
tians of the north they too became in
fected with a desire to find the wonder
tul stone, and were sacrificed home,
friends, fortune even life, to further their
chances of some day wresting tills secret
And so tbo Alchemists continued for
weary centuries vaporizing, fusing,
mixing and inventing in their search for
the stone. And during these centuries
the treasuries ot the nations grew more
and more empty, the golden coins flowed
out in a constant stream lor trappings of
state, of court and of w ar, but there was
no way in which the coffers might be re
plenished. The Alchemists bent to their
toil with redoubled anxiety and care.
In their researches they stumbled across
many valuable lacts and scientific truths,
which have aided materially In develop
ing modern science.
In modern times the philospher's stone
has been discovered. It needed not the
long toll of the Arabians, nor the study
of the Egyptians. 1 Is composed of
neither the bascf nor the liner elements
of which it was supposed to be formed.
It is a material, palpable, substance,
which can bu een with the eye, or
grasped in the hand. It is not possessed
by the.ricli and great exclusively. Indeed,
it is more often found in the homes ot the
poor and humble. But those who pos
sess it are always wise. It does not turn
an object to gold In tin instant, but re
quires lime to perform its wonders, yet
its IT.'cts are sure and certain, l'erhaos
It is needless for me to p.dd that tho
philosopher's stone is economy.

ManliGrus 13 again a dream ol tbe
past, a gorgeous dream too, to those
who witnessed the magnificent cavalcade
of King Comus as It paraded the streets
of Cairo. Mardi Gras, Is, I believe, eel
brated in nearly ail civil i.ed countries.
The Christ! ins being deprived of their
customary pleasures for the awful period
ot forty days, make up for it on their last
day of grnce Shrove Tuesday by in
dulging in every kind of sport which tbe
human mind can ronc-lve. In England
Shrove Tuesday U known as Pancake
Day, and every one observes it by eating
as many pancakes as he possibly can, or
as many as be can get.
Tancake day is held particularly sacred
at Oxford University, and is celebrated
in a peculiar and novel manner. One ot
the professors Ureses himself as a cook,
provides himself with t io necessary
materials a long liaudlcd frying pan
a lire, and batter and stands oil ono
side of a high fence and an fast as lie
bakes the cakes throws them over t9 the
boys assembled on tho other. Of course
there is a scramble, and ho who gets a
whole cako Is cutitlcd to a guinea.
In other countries, where less attention
19 paid to the creature comlorts, Mardi
Gras is celebrated in a different manner.
I wilt venture to say that in uo place ot
Its sizo was It celebrated wltb more
splendor than in Cairo. Tho pageant
that filed through the streets the entire
afternoon was simply magnificent.
Nearly everything in the material world
was represented, from the elephant
down to the tiniest creature. There
wero also characters from the "dim un
seen'' regions. At the head of these was
hU Satanic Majesty in all the glory ot his
cloven boots, his bat-like wings and his

There are comparatively few persons
in this world who possess that which has
led so many groat men to positions of
cinlnencc-perservaiice. Some say dis
content Is a grievous fault. . We think
differently. When properly used, dis
content Is a wonderful source ot activity,
in fact, it may bo truly said that most of
our greatest Inventions owe their pre
ductlon. to discontent. ' ' v
.Taking up the world's history, we find
that every where the persovorlng ones
have played the greatest parts upon the
world's stago. What an amount of per.
severance was displayed In tbe laying of
ine. Atlantic cable a lew yean since!
From the description which history
furnishes, we can Imagine how patiently
the .manufacturer of the first printing
press fbust hate labored to make a sue
cess of hli Invention, aad swaybacxln
tha dim ages, ws flod that the? tur!!fi;
of; tbe great "Egyptian pyramids, the
largest ot which covers an area equal to
twice that ot any building ot the present
day, was accomplished only through tho
work ol years. ,
Ferseveranco is the spur of progress.
Henry Clay, one of the greatest of AmerU
can statesmen, is, Indeed, a wonderful
example ot perseverance. Rising from
tbe humble vocation of a country mill
boy, he gradually worked his way up to
the position of the great and honored
statesman that he was, and what a grand
example of perseverance Is presented in
the life ot Washington. Perhaps no
man, known to the world, has passed
through a more trying ordeal than be.
Meeting with innumerable and dis
couraging defeats, opposed by many ot
bis countrymen, and having to deal
with the most persistent foes it seems
wonderlul that he withstood them all.
Yet he bad hopes which cheered blin
even In bis darkest hours of trill, and,
knowing as he did, that be was striving
for a noble cause he took courage, per
severed in bis undertakings, and was
finally triumphant. W. L. W.

Tbe uuUerigued,your general arrange

to perleel theneoeaary arraugemeiils lor
a proper celebration of our national
birthday, Mardi Gras, beg leave to tubs
mit the iollowing report ot their actions
and doings as sucb committee for your
consideration t -
That tbe arrangements made by your
committee were s near perfect as under
existing circumstances could be expect
ed, your committee believe; and that the
celebration was a decided succes8,both us
to the procession and ball (excepting in
a tinaucial point of view) is a fact as well
known to the Krew as it is to your com
mittee. We think that the fondest anticipations
of the Krew were realized lu the number
ot visitors from abroad wbo graced our
festivities with their presence; the only
drawback being in the fact that the
special trains on the Cairo ana Yinceunes
and Cairo and St. Louis railroads took
their departure at such an hour that a
great number of our visitors were pre
vented from participating in our ball and
supper at the St. Cbarles; and as your
committee bad not anticipated such a re
sult, and bad prepared supper and ac
commodations for a larger number of
people than were present at our evening
entertainment, and necessarily went to
considerable expense by reason thereof,
we hud that as a national result our ex
penditures were greater than our receipts,
as will appear by reference to "a state
ment ol the receipts and expenditures"
hereto attached and made a part of this
report. The statement shows our
Expenditures to have been $C93 80
