There is a Gorman pro\erb whteh
says, "Man darf nur sterben urn gelobfc
zu warden" (We need onlj die In order
to get praised). This, we cannot help
but admit, is fairly true in a general
sense, and if wo required any proof or
confirmation the epitaphs in ceme
teries, churchyards and churches
would readily furnish it Indeed If we

Death, like time, is a great healer of
wounds, a great soother of passions, a
great calmer of turbulent thoughts, a
slayer of enmity. He Is the peace
maker par excellence, having caused
the saying to gain general currency
that we should say nothing of the dead
but what Is good. Among the laws of
the "Twelve Tables," compiled by the
Decemviri, there was one which, In
fact, forbade to speak injuriously of
the dead. It Is in exchange for this
doubtless that we are always doubly
anxious and ready to vilify the living.
A Spurgeon Ruse.
Spurgeon, the famous English di
vine, once passed a stonemason who,
after each stroke of his hammer, curs
ed and swore. Mr. Spurgeon laid his
hand on his shoulder and, looking kind

swearing. Can you also pray?"
With another oath he replied, "Not

man, with a fresh oath, and put it In

man began to feel a little queer. When
he went home his wife asked him what
ailed him, and he told her. "It Is Ju
das' money," said the man, and on a
sudden impulse he threw It Into the
flre The wife found it and took It
out and discovered who had given it
to him. The man took It back to Spur
geon, who conversed long with him,
warning him, and at length was the
means of saving him. He became an
attached member of his flock.
A five-year-old girl was very ill, and,
noticing the anxiety of her parent she
said, "Mamma, do you think I'm going
"No, my dear," replied the mother,
"we think you will soon be better."
"Well," said the little one, "I'd like
to die and go to heaven on a visit if I
was sure I could come back if I didn't
like the place."Chicago News.
Lord Young's Wit.
Looking across the table of a public
pinner at the overrubicund and fishy
eyes of his neighbor opposite, Lord
Young, who was a famous lawyer, in
nuired who the owner of the vinous
countenance might be and was told
he was the president of a water trust
"Aye," said Lord Young. "Well, he
looks like a man that could be trusted
with any amount of water!"
Some one told Lord Young that the
house of lords had on appeal affirmed
a decision of his. "It may be right
after all," was his lordship's reply.

"They will not eat the flesh of a fowl.
You might tempt them with canvas
back duck or the daintiest squab, but
they would refuse It. I remember
once having a swan which had broken
Its wing. We killed it, dressed it care

It finally had to be taken out and
