"Come "said a voice to a poet as he sought an
One night when the world was sleeping, in the
heart of the sweet May time.
"Oh, how can I come?" he answered. "Let me
alone, I pray,
For the verse which I now am weaving the
hearts of men will sway."
"Come," said the voice to a statesman as he
stood in the senate hall,
And men moved on at his bidding like troops
at a bugle call.
"How can I come?" he answered. "My sun at
its zenith stands.
Before it sets forever my name shan. be known
In the lands."
"Come," said the voice to a mother with her
children at her knee,
Dreaming how safe and happy their life by
her side should be.
"Oh. I cannot come," she answered. "I pray
you, let me stay.
For how can I leave my darlings to wander far
No other word was spoken, but the poet left
The statesman's name was heard no more
upon the lips of men,
And the children found no mother, though
they called with sobbing breath,
For the voice which spoke all must obey-it
was the voice of Death.
-Ninetto M. Lowater in New York Sun.
DO FISHES SUFFER PAIN?
Apparently Not, Though They Are In Many
All fishes have nerves, and in some
respects fishes are extremely sensitive.
A fish that has buried itself in sand or
mud so completely that only the tip of
its tail fin is above the bottom will feel
upon the slightest touch and instantly
dart out of its sandy bed. A fish is very
sensitive to movements in the water'
Surrounding it. A shadow falling upon
the water will startle a fish into flight.
But sensitive as fishes are in some re
spects, it is probable that they do not
suffer pain from injuries received.
Fishes are extremely sensitive at the
nose. A fish that had in pursuit of prey
run its nose against a rock might shake
its head violently, perhaps in pain, but
fishes sustain serious injuries from ac
tual wounds without showing any indi
cation of pain. In fact, the indications
tend to show that they do not suffer.
A fish that has been hooked by an
angler, but has escaped, perhaps carry
ing off- a hook in its mouth, may a few
minutes afterward bite again at an
other hook. Such instances are not in
frequent. In such cases the hook would
. probably be concealed by the bait and
the fish would not be likely to see it,
but the fact that it is ready to take the
bait shows that it is continuing to feed,
which it would scarcely be like to do if
it were suffering great pain. A shark
from whose body .all the viscera had
been removed has continued to feed.
Sensitive as fishes are about the nose,
many of them use the nose in pushing
stones and gravel about in building a
nest for.the female to spawn in. The
salmon notoriouzly often wears its snout
down to the bone in excavating a cavity
for a nest, and often it wears off its tail
to a mere stub in brushing out stones
and gravel. Yet such fishes frequently
recover from their injuries and return
to the ocean.
Timid and sensitive as fishes are in
some .respects, they fight one another
vigorously. In such fights they may re
ceive injuries that might be described
as terrible. To these injuries they may
pay so little attention that after the
fight is over they go on with their feed
ing or with whatever occupation they
had been engaged in.
Injuries which would throw a human
being into-a state of helplessness do not
interrupt the current of fish life. The
fish may afterward diefromits injuries,
bu't apparently it does not suffer pain
Fishes sometimes survive injuries of
a remarkable character. The stomach
of a capturedecodfish was found to be
pierced by a spine of a flounder which
it had swallowed. The sharp, thornlike
spine projected about half an inch be
yond the outer wall of the stomach into
the fish's body. Apparently the codfish
had suffered no inconvenience from this.
The wound caused by the spine had
healed around it, and the codfish was
fat and in good condition generally.

A BLIND TRAVELER.
Ere Finds His Way Alone Along the Roads
Gilbert Watkins is the name of a
blind man who lives on Brush street,
aear Taylor. Although he is so blind he
-annot tell day from night, even though
be looks directly at the sun, it does not
interfere with his ability to travel. In
tact, Watkins does more traveling than
miost other people exccpt drummers.
And, furthermore, he does the most
>f it without any one to guide him.
Watkins, when he is in the city, can
be seen standing on the corners of some
)f the down town streets, where he sells
aotions and other small articles in order
:o gain a livelihood. But he does not
;tay long at a time, because he likes to
visit different places and meet different
eople. He always attends the different
elebrations and fiestas, where he says
2e is sure to enjoy himself.
When Watkins wants to go- any place
-he first time, he gets some one to guide
im, if possible, but after that he can
go alone at any time he wishes. He has
yeen over nearly all of the roads in Cal
ifornia, and only a few months ago he
palked from this city to Los Angeles
y himself. He says he is always well
reated and finds people only too willing
o tell him what is going on.
According to Watkins' story, he is
%ble to do these remarkable things solely
by his memory and says that he can be
taken anywhere and made to turn as
many corners as desired, and that he
an find his way back without assist
,ce. In this respect he seems to have
the same faculty a cat is said to have
and exercises it in the same way.
When the blind man desires to go to
a certain place he has never been taken
before, he is led to it, and as he goes
along he takes mental note of all the
bjects he passes. Here is a rough cross
ing, here some asphaltum pavement,
here a dirt road with some stones on it,
here some water, etc. When he wants
to return, he takes them in reverse order
and has no trouble.
"The reason I can do this," he says,
"is because I don't see a lot of things
that distract me. You could do the same
thing easy enough. Maybe in a mile I
would only have to remember a few
bjects. It is just the same as if a man
who could see was taken through a dark
alley, but every once in awhile was
given a glimpse of his surroundings by
a light being turned on. He could re
member what he saw without any trou
ble, but if he saw a thousand other
things he could not. I know just how
many steps it is from the corner to
where I live and can walk to the place
without even using my cane. Of course
I am helped a great deal by the people
I pass, because they know I am blind
and always make room for me. "-San
A CASE OF TELEPATHY.
One Lady Appeared In a Vision at the
. Time of Her Death.
A gentleman took a house in Ireland
for six months and was accompanied
thither by his wife and daughters. The
house was furnished and had plenty of
bedrooms. Therefore it was decided not
to use a certain large, long room with
cupboards along one side (which had all
been locked and sealed up with tape) in
which things belonging to the owners
of the house had been put away. One
evening one of the daughters, going to
her room, saw an old lady wrapped in a
shawl walking along the passage in
front of her. The old lady appeared to
know her way and hurried on without
hesitation into the unused room. The
girl called her sister, and they followed
the dame into the room. But all was
silent. No one was there. The dust ly
ing about showed no signs of footprints.
Shortly af ter the same young lady
was reading on the hearth rug by fire
light. Looking up, she beheld the old
lady standing in the doorway watching
her. Greatly frightened, she sprang up,
and, rushing down stairs, was found
faintng at the drawing room door. At
last the family returned to Dublin. One
day when a friend was calling the curi
ous incident which I have narrated was
referred to. The young lady very un
willingly told her experiences. The vis
itr seemed much struck and asked for
an accurate description of the old lady.
"For, " said she, "that house belonged
to two old ladies, sisters, and when they
let their house they went to reside at
Geneva. One of them, answering exact
ly to the description you have given,
died at the time you saw her appear."
The Grecian Portrait.
The Grecian portrait seems the per
fection of the human type to us, and
artists copy it, although it is actually~
rare. In it the line of the nose is morel
or less perfectly the prolongation of the1
IIhe'atinrtorehead. The hollow afi the
root of the nose is almost effaced, and
the prominence of the nose is softened.
The absolute Grecian profile would
therefore be represented in a drawing
by a single continuo~us line for the fore
head and nose. Yet another condition
is essential for obtaining the fine Gre
cian profile. The forehead should not
be receding. This marks the distinction!
between the Grecian and the Egyptian
profile. -Popular Science Monthly.

The Way Out of It.

if she thought she was a Christian.
"I spects I is, " was her reply.

CARLYLE AND THE CABBY.
How the Latter Lot the Trade of the
Carlyle was well kiown to London
cabmen. For years he engaged a partic
ular driver from the rank and refused
to have any other. This man, however,
lost his custom in a somewhat peculiar
Some medical students got to know
of his preference for the driver, and,
getting hold of the driver one day, they
inquired if he knew who his fare was,
when he told them h did not. The stu
dents informed him that he was one of
the most famous and eccentric writers
of the day, and, giving him a book, ad
vised him to appear to be reading it
whenever Carlyle approached the stand.
Cabby, without any suspicion, acted
on their advice, and when the old sage
next came for a cab he seemed deeply
impressed in a very pretentious book.
"Hello! Wha's that you're readin?"
inquired the Ecclefochan philosopher.
"A most hout an bout, tiptop, splen
did book about that 'ere French revolu
tion," was cabby's gushing reply.
"Eh, what dae ye say? Let me see
it," said Carlyle, holding out his hand.
"Oh, certainly, sir," said the driver,
anding him a copy of his "History of
the French Revolution."
" Weel, my man, " inquired the sage,
apparently delighted, "are ye sure that
you're roadin this work intelligently?"
"Perfectly sure, " said the jehu confi
ently. Then, thinking he ought to say
something in praise of the book, he
added, "Why, sir, it's almost as good
as 'The Newgate Calendarl' "
The grim old Dumfriesian glared at
him, grunted out something, turned ab
ruptly around and engaged the next
:ab. From that day Carlyle never looked
at him, but- stuck to the second man,
who happened to have had the honor cf
driving most of the distinguished men
of the century. -Pittsburg Dispatch.
The Motherly Landlady.
A friend of mine changed his board
ing place last week, going to one of
those houses that advertise home com
'orts and a motherly landlady, which
generally means that she is a person
who will pry into one's private affairs
and read long letters left lying about.
This particular landlady happens to re
gard drinking and smoking as particu
lar devices of the devil, so when my
friend began to praise a new brand of
tobacco at the dinner table the other
night she saw her chance and promptly
chipped into the conversation.
"Smoking makes men utterly selfish,
she said, as a starter, enunciating her
words as if she were sawing ice into
My friend was dazed for a moment,
for he had not much experience with
people who denounce everything as
wrong wbich they do not personally
fancy, but he quickly recdvered and an
swered: "Possibly so, but after all it's
a stand off, for abstinence from smoking
seems to make people deucedly impolite.
Or possibly you indulge a little? So
many of the ladies enjoy their cigarettes
Then the storm broke. -Boston Post.
An Editor's Confessions.
Years ago a young and thoughtless
man carrying on the profession, trade or
business of a free lance journalist pre
,med to congratulate a friend upon the
dignity of his position as assistant edi
tor of a great daily paper. Those were
the days when editors were editors,
when nobody dreamed of assigning the
title of new's editor or sporting edi
tor to the man who divided his time
between the scissors, the paste and the1
noisome and oleaginous flimsy or to the
man who knocked into shape the effu
sions of the sporting reporter. These
were the days also when to be an assist
ant editor was to occupy a position of
responsibilty, trust and power, where
as in these times the assistant editor is
too often nothing better than the edit
or's secretary. The assistant editor and
the free lance journalist were not far
apart in age. They had almost been
contemporaries at Oxford, but the man
of dignified position had a harassed and
weary look, tired eyes and a ragged
beard, and the free lance was young
and lusty as an eagle. And this was the
answer to the congratulation:
"My dear X, wait until you have
tried your hand as an editor, then you
will know what it is to long for the
days that are past. You will realize that
the life of a tolerably succcssful con
tributor is a thousand times more choice
worthy than that of an editor. I used to
write with pleasure and to tak'?a mod
est pride in my work. Ncw I never
write a line except to fill up 'white' or
to make an article turn the column.
Much of my time is spent in spoiling
the work of others. "-National Review.

Sir Andrew Clarke, while 'tiraeii
in Italy, ascended a high tower one
evening and found at the top .another
tourist, an Englishman. They chatted
pleasantly for a few minutes, when sud
denly the stranger seized Sir Andrew
by the shoulders and said quietly, "I
am going to throw you over." The man
was a maniac. The physician had only
a moment in which to gather his
thoughts, but that moment saved him.
"Pooh," he replied unconcernedly,
"anybody can throw a man off the
tower! If we were on the ground, yeu
could not throw me up. That would be
to difficult." "Yes, I could, " retorted
the maniac. "I could easily throw you
up here from the ground. Let us go
down, and I will do it." The descent
was accordingly made, during which
Sir Andrew managed to secure help and,
release himself from his perilous situa
tion. -San Francisco Argonaut.
An Enterprising Thief.
"The most enterprising thief I ever
heard of was one whom I was appointed
by the court to defend," said Henry W.
Joy, a prominent St. Louis lawyer. "A
wealthy man died, and as fine a coffin
was obtained as money could buy. There
was some very heavy solid silver plate ,
on it. As the hearse moved off a well
dressed, businesslike looking man was
seen to enter it, carrying a little sack as
if of tools. Every one who noticed him
at all supposed he was an assistant of
the undertaker. Just before the proces
sion reached the cemetery the man
emerged from the hearse and went
ahead, disappearing at the gate. When
the coffin was removed, all of the trap
pings were gone, and the young man
was not to be found. He melted the sil
ver and sold it, and had it not been for*
a pal betraying him he would never
have been caught."--Washington Star.I
