A -winged seed
So small It aoema there scarce is room
To hold ae germ of growth and bloom
So light tli poised upon the air
As though twould rest forever there
The down upon a fairys wing
Yon cloud that zephyrs speed
There is no frailer lighter thing
Than seems this winged seed
A -winged seed
As lightsome as the loving word
That no one but the sufferer heard
As trifling as the kindly smile
That cheered a lonely lot awhile
As slight as was the passing sneer
That made an old wound bleed
The taunt that half provoked a tear
So light this winged seed
A winged seed
Within this tomb what spirit lies
That soon in life renewed shall rise
Whence came it floating white and fair
Upon the fragrant golden air
Oh breathe not on the feathery thing
Its onward course to speed
Till thou hast thought what stem shall
spring
From out this winged seed

How Colonel Skerrett Proved Him
self to Be a Brave Man
Colonel Skerrett Major Marsh mnd
Captain Pickering were sitting in their
room at the Hotel Anglais Paris They
were Americans on their travels all
three rough looking down Easters who
had gone through the worst fire of the
civil war Dr Vicaire surgeon in the
French army was standing in front of
them regarding them with a severe
air
I come to denounce to you as you
have insult my friend le Lieutenant
Foulon He demand ze satisfaction

wen saia the Oolonel with a
grin you be nt such a darned fool
as to put a lighted cigar into a keg of
powder bo you When was you
born
Sir replied the Lieutenant vainly
endeavoring to hold the cigar motion
less in his shaking hand I have
given my word that if I lost the toss
up I should put this lit cigar
Hold on you didnt say lit
Well the cigar I was smoking
Put it out then
Sir you have run the risk that I
ran I have lost and I but do as you
would have done I will put this
lighted c gar into this bung hole
Put in the chawed up end then
You insult me again sir
Bless your heart You fire up a
darned sight easier than this ere pow
der ever wilL Do you think that I
would ever put the burning end of a
cigar into the bung hole of a keg full
of powder Great Jerusalem
I have told you agam and I repeat
it that you are no gentleman But I
I am a man of honor Bah You
shall see me die as one 1 keep my
promise
Foulon slowly advanced tho burning
cigar toward the opening in the keg
beneath
Go away here you shall be killed
shouted Vicaire to the Colonel but the
latter remained quietly beside the vic
tim Vicaire covered his face with his
hands and waited for tho awful mo
ment which was to blow his friend to
atoms There was a dead silence and
then a slight hiss was heard Vicaire
looked up Foulon his face purple
with rage was holding his cigar after
repeatedly poking it into the buncr hole
The Colonel was on a broad grin
Is this powder asked Foulon
Tooth powder answered tho Col
onel cost almighty
But said Foulon shaking now
with rage instead of fear if you had
lost the toss up our keg was full of gun
powder What then
Id have put the cigar out before I
put in said the Colonel
Ah murmured Foulon
Or stuck in the chawed up end
Hold on to the terms you
Foulon calmly walked to his carriage
He and Vicaire hoisted in their keg of
gunpowder and followed it themselves
bir shouted Foulon to the Colonel
I said you were no gentlemen I say
now you are a coward
The Colonel smiled
For three days the friends walked
about Paris and saw both Foulon and
Vicaire several times They were not
posted in the cafes for the Frenchmen
feared the storm of ridicule which a
knowledge of the grotesque duel would
bring upon them Neither were the
horsewhipped for Vicaire argued that
they would probably retaliate and in
such a case the whipping would be only
a modified form of the auel a la club
remnli
On the fourth day after this
the three friends happened to
one of the large and beautiful
duel
be on
steam-
boats carrying excursions down the
Seine Colonel Skerrett like a con
sistent Yankee was in the pilot house
watching the working of the wheel He
came down afterward and sauntered
back to where his two friends were
standing Near them were no less in
dvlduals than Foulon and Vicarie Nei
ther party addressed the other The
boat was in the middle of the river For
a long distance on either side the banks
were straight and the tide was flowng
directly down the middle channel Sud
denly arose a cry of fire A wild
stampede of passengers in the bow of
the boat was made toward the stern
and Foulon who was standing near an
opening in the railing was thrown
from his balance As he was falling
overboard the Colonel stretched out his
long arm grasped him by the collar
and pulled him in again The French
man s hat had fallen off The Colonel
Eicked it up and with a friendly smile
anded it to his late adversary Foulon
colored up and said eagerly
Colonel Skerrett I beg your par
don You are a gentleman
In the meantime the panic increased
All the bow of the boat was in a bright
blaze And the fire reached the pilot
house The pilot rushed out with
singed beard and eyebrows and the
boat slowly drifted down the stream
The Colonel cauffht hold of the pilot
and dragged him to Foulon
Sir iY said he ask this here fellow
which bank is the safest to land on
and tell me
He says the right one answered
Foulon But the boat can not be
managed The wheel must be on fire
Without a word of reply the Colonal
plowed his way through the shriekin

crowd leaped up the steps of tho pilot
house and se zed tho wheel There he
stood the flames roaring about him
tho crowd shrieking beneath him
steadily steering toward therightbank
Foulon shuddered at this exhibition of
simple superhuman courage The bank
was reached The crowd selfish and
crazed with fear rushed to land The
Major and the Captain struggled up
the burning steps of the pilot house
followed by Foulon and Vicaire They
dragged the Colonel out through the
flames bore him to tho bank and ap
plied restoratives He was less injured
than might have been supposed and at
length opened hs eyes
Oh Colonel Skorrettcried Foulon
with tears in hs eyes your pardon
your pardon You are a brave man and
a man of honor
The Colonel said Captain Picker
ing can swim like an otter He could
have crossed the creek a hundred times
without stopping
F sts said Major Marsh are no
weapons perhaps Well pistols are
The Colonel can knock the center of a
five cent piece spun in the air at fifty
yards
I wll never fight a duel again

And I never call one man ze cow

Apologize for kicking his darned
cur shouted the Colonel What
did it come snapping and harking at
my heels for I would kick Mr Ioo
long himself if he did that
Ah replied the Doctor vergoot
Insult additional and he blew his
nose like a flourish of trumpets
Colonel Skerrett was as brave a man
as ever stood in boots hut besides his
conscientious objections to a duel the
cause of quarrel was so ludicrous that
he only answered with
Ah said the Doctor calmly but
reddening Insult treert And he
took a prodigious pinch of snuff
The three friends looked at each
other Major Marsh took the word
My friend will allow me to act for
him We have the choice of weapons
Yes
Then I choose them that nature
provided Fists
Feest said the doctor pondering
You mean ze ze
Major Marsh exphiined in panto
mime
Sir cried the fiery doctor you
make ze game of me I see you after
my friend havezo satisfaction
Dont get so hot now What do
you sav to stuffed clubs in a darkened
room
It took a long time to make the doc
tor understand this proposition but
when he did he rejected it with con
stantly increasing wrath Captain
P ckering suggested a
in a pit kick scratch bite claw
and gouge Major Marsh thought an
excellent way of settling the diliiculty
would be for the two adversaries to go
into shallow water and see which could
drown the other Finally Colonel
Skerrett suggested that tuev should
bring a keg of powder on the field cast
lots and whichever lost should sit
upon the keg and apply the cigar he
Imd just been smoking to a hole in the
keg Dr Vicaire tore his hair ana re
jected one and all
Why said the Major it pears to
me that we havent got the choice of
weapons at all
Of ze weapon yes But zis is no

worthy Doctor stamped with rage
Doctor said the Major quietly
the last suggest on of Colonel Sker
rett is one that has been acted on in
at least one case in one of the Southern
Staies of Amer ca IS yourfr end wants
an out and out dooel he will accept
the offer of a barrel of powder under
them conditions If he dont he is only
foolin with the matter People blaze
away at each other here for half an
hour and shoot nothing but the pigs
When we da a thing in the States we
du it
Sir shrieked Vicaire with con
centrated rage You coward you
poltroon seclrat I post you in ze cafe
ze hotel I and my friend whip you
w th ze eh ze whip of ze horse
and he rushed from the room swing
ing his hat frantically in one hand and
plucking at h s hair with the other
Left to themselves the three friends
laughed heartily As for the doctors
threat of personal chastisement Major
Marsh alone looked strong enough to
horsewhip the National Guard if it
were called out For the posting in the
cafes they cared exactly nothing They
chatted and smoked and were begin
ning to forget the whole affair
But an hour later the writer an
nounced M fe Lieutenant Foulon
M Foulan advanced into the room
bowed courteously to the two and ad
dressing Colonel Skerrett said in per
fect English
I have just seen my friend Vicaire
Possibly he misunderstood From
what he told me I understand that you
made propositions which no gentleman
would make Therefore vou are no
gentleman It remains to be seei if
you are a coward as well I am aware
that your last proposition is a mode of
the duello practiced in some parts of
Tour country Of that my friend Vi
care was ignorant Although the
practice it irregular I waive that con
sideration and personally accept your
proposal of a keg of powder under the
specified conditions You will oblige
me by nam jig time and placo
Say to morrow at five oclock in the
afternoon I reckon the little wood of
Plessis on the road to Versailles is a
quietr enough place I will supply the
Keg of powder for your use and you
will supply the oue for mine
Very well sir said Foulon bow
ing I shall be there The terms to
be rigidly adhered to To apply the
cigar which one has just been smoking
to the open hole in the keg
Precisely answered the Colonel
1 presume said the Leutenant
with a sinister smile that in any
event the services of a doctor or sur
geon will be unnecessary
1 am sure of it said the Colonel
with a grin
Foulon left the room and when he
had gone Colonel Skerrett said Ill
fight this here devil but I aint gwine to
let that there fool blow himself to
atoms The three friends took meas
ures accordingly
The next day at the appointed time
the five men all smoking vigorously
were on tho ground Eachparty had
brought its powder keg along The
Major and Dr Vicaire tossed up Th
Major won
Foulon turned ghastly pale but
walked firmly to the keg which the
Americans had brought and sat down
on it It was an ordinary cider keg
and Major Marsh knocked out the
bung All then retired to a safe dis
tance except the Colonel who remained
standing by Foulons side The latter
down whoso livid face the sweat was
rolling took his cigar from his mouth
and advanced it still glowing toward
the open bung hole
Hold on there said the Colonel
that ere cigar is lit
Certainly it is gasped Foulon his
lips quivering in spite of himself
A PENNSYLVANIA ROMANCE
HowMr Lincoln Believed the Distresses
of a Newly Married Couple
In the spring of 1863 a very hand
some and attractive young lady from
Philadelphia came to my office with a
note from a friend asking me to assist
her in obtaining an interview with the
President Some time ago she had
been married to a young man who was
a lieutenant in a Pennsylvania regi
ment He had been compelled to leave
her the day after the wedding to rejoin
his command in tho army of the Po
tomac After some time he obtained
leave of absence returned to Philadel
phia and started on a briof honey
moon journey with his bride A move
ment of the army being imminent the
War Department issued a peremptory
order requiring all absent officers to
rejoin their regiments on a certain day
on penalty of dismissal in case of diso
bedience The bride and groom awav
on their hurried wedding tour failed
to see the order and on his return he
was met by a notice of his dismissal
from tho service The young fellow
was completely prostrated by the dis
grace and his wife hurried to Wash
ington to get him restored I obtained
for her an interview with the Presi
dent She told her story with simple
and pathetic eloquence and wound up
by saying Mr Lincoln wont you
help us I promise you if you will
restore him he will be faithful
to his duty The President had
listened to her with evident sympathy
and a half amused smile at her earnest
ness and as she closed her appeal
he said with parental kindness And
you say my child that Fred was com
pelled to leave you tho day after the
wedding Poor fellow 1 dont wonder
at his anxiety to get back and if he
stayed a little longer than he ought to
have done well have to overlook his
fault this time Take this card to the
Secretary of War and he will restore
your husband She went to the Wat
Department saw the Secretary who
rebuked her for troubling tho President
and dismissed her somewhat curtly
As it happened on her way down the
War Department stairs her hopes
chilled by the Secretarys abrupt man
ner she met tho President ascending
He recognized her and with a pleasant
smile said Well mv dear have you i
seen the Secretary Yes Mr Lin
coln she replied and he seemed
very angry with me for going to you
Wont you speak to him tor me
Give yourself no trouble saidhe
I will see that tho order is issued
And in a few days her husband was re
manded to his regiment
I am sorry to add that not long after
he was killed at the battle of Gettys
burg thus sealing with his blood her
pledge that he should be faithful to his
duty Ex Assistant Attorney General

BOSTON VISITORS
Peanuts and Pink Lemonado at tho IIai
Kural Sight Seers
An influx of country visitors to Bos
ton is invariably signalized by the pro
fusion of paper bags business -circulars
and peanut shells that litter the
common the public garden and the
sidewalks generally The rural sight
seer has a pronounced partiality for
peanuts Whenever he may be ex
pected to flock thither the supply of
peanuts on hand to meet all possible
demands is made startlingly manifest
Carts with heaped up masses of tho
edible appear in all directions What
becomes of them at other times is a
mystery to the uninitiated Whence
their venders spring is also another se
cret that no one has attempted to
solve They are always sunburned
men of bucolic aspect and single toned
raucaus voices and somnolent bearing
Another feature of the rush of rural
visitors hitherward is the simultaneous
appearance of pink lemonade Why
pink has never been explained nor has
any one curious in such matters taken
the trouble to discover the cur ous con
nection between this lemonade and the
frowsy young men without shirt collars
or neckties and having an abnormal
development of the Adams apple in
their throat who supply the blushing
beverage to the thirsty strangers in our
midst The city was prolific last week
in these articles and their purveyors
With the departure of the circus both
disappeared It might be reasonably
argued that they follow in the train of
the circus were it not that they come to
the surface again on every public holi
day It is not in this locality alone
that peanuts and pink lemonade pre
vail on these occasions The custom
extends from one end of the country to
the other proving that there must bo
some subtle and as yet unsolved sym
pathy between country people bent up
on enjoyment and the festal peanut and
tinted lempnade Boston Gazette

What He Found Out
I say Jones called the city editor
to a reporter in the next room I wish
youd go down to Captain Davis and
find out something about the death of
his brother
All right sir replied the obedient
Jones and started off In about an
hour he returned
Well inquired the c e when
did he die
Didnt find out said Jones
What was the matter
Didnt find out repealed the ro
porter
When are they going to bury him
Didnt find out he said again
Didnt find out Thunderation
man didnt you find anything out
exclaimed the 3gitated city editor
Yes sir
Well well what was it
Captain Davis said the reporter
with a sad sweet smile and the c e
rose up and bumped his head against

the Armies of the Czar Are Inspect
ed by tho Emperor
We rode at least a mile and a half
past the line of tents and must have
seen 50000 men The ground is pret
tily accidente and altogether well suit
ed for camp purposes At the end we
came upon the Guard reglmxits and
the Preobrajensky Regime with
whom finished the inspection and here
were assembled all the bands and
drums to the number ot 800 in one
compact mass facing the Empresss pa
vilion or tent at the door of which she
and her ladies alighted and were
joined by the Emperor and Grand
Dukes We all dismounted and came
inside the square of which the royalty
and staff formed one side the musi
cians the opposite side the other two
sides bo ng composed of officers of the
various corps who had hurried to the
spot In the center on a mound stood
the conductor of the united bands of
music and near him one drummer -boy
or perhaps a lad of twenty We the
foreign missions stood in line and the
Emperor came down from the pavilion
and spoke to each of tho Generals He
was very aracious to me and inquired
about my servica and the commands I
had held This over he stood alone in
the center and a detachment of Ser
geants in full marching order passea
hm one by one each Sergeant giving
the evening report of his picket and ot
the usual watch setting in a
loud voice the Czar thus fulfill
ing for the moment the role of camp
commandant We Generals only
were then taken up one by ono to the
Empress who talked to me about tho
Princess of Wales Cowes Osborne
etc and was altogether gracious and
charming Then tea was handed
around and tho crowd of officers and
of the troops generally kept closing
round the square as the hour for tho
retreat or Zaira drew nigh Mean
while heavy clouds had gathered in the
horizon and a storm seemed to threaten
us though the view down the slope
and over the valley to Krasnoe distant
about a mile was not rendered less
beautiful by the combination of waning
sunlight and threatening clouds
Eight oclock sounds each field bat
tery fires an evening gun three rock
ets shoot into the air and the drums
and bands roll out with a solemnity
and volume of sound not easilv for
gotten the evenng hymn As thclast
notes die oft the drummer boy steps
forward the bandmaster descends and
the little drummer sole occupant of
the square repeats slowly but with
perfect distinctness the Lords Prayer
Every head is uncovered and bows
from the Emperor to the furthermost
spectator and 1 should from mv heart
pity the man who as the little lads
Amen went up in its solitary sim
plicity could scoft at or even be un
impressed by the silence which fol
lowed There was a total absence of
all exaggeration or straining for in
creased effect The bands then burst
forth with the Russian National air so
well known to all of us and the sceno
closed as night fell

PREMATURE BURIALS
An Undertaker Itelief That People
Are
Often Buried Alive
The world would be horrified
sad a well known undertaker the other
day if it knew the number of bodies
that are buried before 1 fe is extinct
Once in a while one of these cases
comes to light but no steps are taken
to prevent its recurrence
Somethng that happened to me
about twelve years ago has worried me
ever since I was sent for one day to
take charge of the body of a man in
street The man was a tailor
and had fallen over while sitting on
his bench sewng He was a big fleshy
man about forty years of aire and
weighed about 250 pounds The body
was warm and the limbs very limp I
did not believe the man was dead and
said so His friends told me that a
physician had pronounced him dead
I was ordered to put his body on ice at
once but delayed this operation on
one pretext or another for nearly two
days During this time- the body lav
on the bench in the 1 ttle shop Finally
I could delay no longer The limbs
were still as limp as when I first ex
amined the body I prepared tho
body for burial and the next day it
was buried I do not believe that man
was dead when the earth Was shoveled
in on his coffin II the same thing
were to happen again I would let
somebody else do the burying
About the same time ayoungwoman
living up town was supposed to have
died very suddenly A phjsician was
called in He said she was dead An
old woman who was present thought
otherwise and insisted upon it that she
was in a trance The body was buried
A week later the old woman deter
mined to satisfy herself about it and
bribed the grave diggers to disinter
the coffin The lid was removed and
a horrible sight was seen Ihe youns
woman had come to life and had madjp

A person is generally believed to be
dead if there is no acton of the heart

If blood flows the person is not

REINDEER HUNTING
How the Esquimaux Haat the KelBdeex v
Aided By Boys and Dogs
Esquimaux dogs are used in various
ways in hunting When the weather
is so foggy that a hunter can not see
very far and there is consequently but
little prospect of his killing anyfcing
unless he almost stumbles upon it one
of them will take his bow ajwl arrows
or his gun if he be fortunate cncHgk
to own one and giving the best trained
hunting dog in charge of ose of his
sons they start out reindeer hunting
The boy puts aharness oa the dog ties
the trace around his own waist jmt
holds it in his hands and follows his
father out into the fog
Of course the older Esquimaux has
some idea where the reiadeer will bo
grazing or res ting and he soon finds
out which way the wind is blowing
over the place where he suspects ta
reindeer to be- Then with his boy
and the dog he goes around in such a
way that the game will not be dis
turbed to some place where the wind
blowng over the reindeer will come
toward the hunters- As soon as the
j place is reached the dog smells tho
reindeer and commences snifing the
I a r as if anxious to 20 toward them
The boy allows the dog to advance
slowly still holding on to the harness
so that it shall not run away As soo
as the dos scent3 the deer it
directly toward them
quite near it grows excted aad com
mences to jump and to jerk thelMirnesa
trace by whch the boy is hoWiag it
beinc a well trained huatiag dog how
ever it never barks so as to frighten the
deer by the sound
The hunter nor knows froat these
J excited actions of the dorthat tho
reindeer must be close at hand al
though he can not sec them for the ia
So he tells his son to hold the dog a
remain in that spot while he takag his-
I bow or gun and crawls cautiously for
want in the prober direction Befettt t
he has gone far probably not were
than twenty or twety fiveyards away
