ART OF CONVERSATION.
It Should le Fontered and Studied
Caroline litzar.d ii her "Education
of Women" says, "Iow few of us
study to put itis persuasively, to
reach a proper elimax. to retire grace
fully from a sub.l.eet." It Is at common101
sayilig tihat the lirt (if covorsationl has
disappeared from am it.ng us, :d yet it
Is an art leld In hoilrlI by all men.
Telegraphic speech has taken the place
of the more entij tiid elaborate
forms of coiferene. I'. t it is an art
which should be proeted to tll young
people and N which they should study
with seiiouness itd miatetion. Noth
Ing really inspires, notAing really cre
ates enthuslasm but the perception of
an ultimate Ideal. whether it be in art
or music or In any other of the realms
of spiritual thought.' This Ideal of
beauty has to come to the aid of every
form of expression, lifting and raising
it into its own kingdom. The student
who has even begui, on such a course
of training, who can see beauty in ev
erything in the created world and In
the realm of thought, hits certainly be
gun to be beautiful in himself. For
beauty most truly passes Into the per
son who studies the beautiful. No oneI
can give out what lie (oes not have to
give. le must flrst absorb beauty at
the great natural reservoirs and foun
tains of the beautiful before lie himself
can become truly beautiful in life and
character and so able to transmit beau
ty to all aroulnid hlim.
Ito Great Wall Wax One of the Won

According to Ilerodotus, the ancient
city of Babylon stood on a broad, level
plain ai(n w an exact s(uitare of four
teen ifls ea ich wily, making tle entire
circuit of ite city fifty-six miles. It
was proteet"d both by a wall and a
moat, tlte lattr being )road and dee)
and kept constantly filled with water.
But ithe wall was the wonder of won
dc , being !3 1-2 feet In% width and at
W.' '0 feet inl height. This monster
ibtariel was provided with 100 gates,
all (if Solid brass, tile lintels and side
pieces being in bronze. Cross walls
ran along tle banks of the Euphrates,
each provided with twenty-live gates,
which corresponded to the umimber of
streets running in each direction from
The most remarkable edifice inside
the wall was the temple of Bel, a pyra
mil of eight sIuire stadia. On the
sumnmit of this pyramid stood a lore
gold image of Bel forty feet high, two
other siialler figires of the saime pr
clous mietal and aI golden table forty feet
long tid( fifteen feet wide. This won

THE GOOD OLD CLOCK.

"G3ive ite tihe clock for ctiulpany,"
lid the observant ianiti, "aind yo inay
ilave IilI tle balance of the inaltimnate
ohings Inder the sun, or over it, and I
will throw a few of the aninals In for
good niemsure. I cln conceive of noth
Ing more friendly, more unipeakably
coniforting, than the mellow tick of the
old faimily clock which towers high on
the old fashioned mantel, above the
good old open faced fireplace where the
emibers itre dying down aind deepening
into a bluish melancholy gray late of
winter nights. One never feels quite
alone as long as one may hear the mel
low tick tack of the old fainily clock,
the same sweet mellow cadences which
have im in one's ear fron earliest
infancly. through all the changes and
tipl,eivals of tne, down to the present.
0ter sounds may fall and deepen Into
the sadder silence of the'night's heavy
stllies, but the old clock continues to
Imark tile flight of tite, and 110 second

clock vlose hands have ieasured al

full of light and life and prouilse and

echoing back sepulchrally from the
years already counted. Ah, the clock!
Hut give ile the clock with Its tickilg
all throuigh tile night, and Its silvery
