The Dwarf Whom Harvard Honored.
At the recent commencement ex
ercises at Harvard University oc
curred an incident full of instruc
tion for those who saw it. It is
often the habit of boys to judge of
things by the way they look; but
as one grows older he learns that
appearance is not all. "Handsomne
is as handsome does" is an adage
that becomes clearer as one learns
more of the world.
At these exercises there were
over one thousand students ready
to receive diplomas, their friends
who had come from all over the
country; besides scores of wise men
and great President Eliot confer
red honorary degrees upon many
distinguished guests who were pre
sent. One of these was Theodore
Roosevelt, President of the United
States, who arose in the fullness of I
sturdy manhood and bowed his
There were scientists, inventors,
famous preachers, great judges,
diplomats, and statesmen.
Once when a name was called, a!
soldier in full uniform bedecked
with gold braid and shining buttons
arose. He was a surgeon of the
army, and was thus honored by
Harvard because he had discovered
how to check the dreadful scourge
yellow fever, an enemy that mows
down more soldiers-than the bullets.
Each of these men, seated in a
circle on the stage before the vast
audience, arose in turn and bowed
in all his honor and glory. It was
a sight, magnificent and inspiring.
to see these distinguished men
famous, worthy of honor, handsome.
The president of the college then
read from his list another name
which Harvard wished to honor.
His deep, full voice pronounced

From out of the bank of seats
there arose a dwarfish, misshapen
figure, a tiny man, humpbacked,
his face peering out between his
shoulders, his black hair bristling
all on end. He bowed, smiling, and
with the dig iity of the others took
The applause that followed shook
the vast concourse. Everyone felt
the meaning of the bestowed honor.

Value and Beauty of the Apple.
A medical writer is quoted as fol
lows: "The more mellow apples one
eats the better, provided they be
taken at meal time. It is best of
all to eat fruit before meals, and
freely as you like."
This will prevent loading the
system with a heavy weight of less
digestible foods. Senator Vest says
that if a man wishes. to live long
and be able to keep up his work he
must eat not less than one apple
with every noon lunch; we are not
sure but he said half a dozen. The
no breakfast fad tells us that we
must not only go without the morn
ing meal, but that we must live
much more largely upon frait
Some of its disciples insist that the
apple may be taken in the place ot
the ordinary breakfast. John We~
ley once referred to apple dump
lings ai an illustration of the alarm
ing advance of luxuries in England.
Charles Lamb quotes a friend who
says that "a man can not haye a
pure mind who refuses apple dump
lings," and Dr. Johnson speaks of
a clergyman of his acquaintance
who brought his family up almost
altogether on the Anglo-Saxon com
bination. We have recollections of
