The Duke!s Death.
" Kneel here by my side, Lurline,"
and in obedience to the summons, a
beautiful girl flung herself in an abandon
of grief near the bed on which lay
the eighth Duke of Twenty-second street,
Rupert Kollingstone. Rupert was dying
dying away out on the West Side. A
cold had developed into a quick consumption.
The dreaded disease had
made known its piesence while Rupert
was at the house of a friend on Lafliu
street, " You can not live more than a
week," the doctor had said, "But my
people," cried the sick man, in an agony
of fear; "they are on Twenty-second
street, and too xoor to hiie a carriage.
How shall I see them?" and he wrung
his hands in an agony of despair,
"It cannot be done, my lass," said
the street-railway superintendent, looking
down kindly into Lurline's face.
"I would gladly do aught that might
case the last moments of a dying man,
but I can not accomplish impossibilities.
A car from Twenty-second street to the
corner of Laflin aiid Van Bnren in five
days? By my halidom, you j st
and, picking up a pair of shears, he
again resumed his occupation of cutting
coupons from government bonds. When
Lurline had knelt by the dying man, he
turned to her and spoke: "Lnr ine, my
darling," he said, "lam dying down.
I shall soon be in the sweet pretty quick.
But ere I start, I want you to mike me
one promise a sacred one, that you
will keep forever." "Name it," hai.l
the girl, in a sob-choked voice. "Whenever
you are in a hurry, avoid the street
car." "I promise," was the reply.
Rupert's face lit up with a swpet, peaceful
smile. "Good-bye, my angel."
" Bung soir," was the faint response, as
the girl's head fell on his brenst amid a
storm of sobs. "I see heaven," murmured
the dying man. "I know it is
heaven, because there are lots of street
cars, and they run every three minutes."
Rupert was dead. Chicago Tribune.
Athletic -. Training1. - .
Manly exercise, or what is sometimes
called "muscular education" is practiced
at all of our colleges, but the art of
physical development in modern times
is still in its infancy as compared with
the customs of the Greeks. Oscar
Browning says: " By the time the fourteenth
year was completed the Greek
boy would have begun to devote himseli
seriously to the practice of athletics.
The ardor shown in this pursuit by the
Greeks and Romans is otten used as an
argument for our exaggerated devotion
to them at the present day. There is
no doubt that by the double attention
to.the welfare of mind and body, the
Greeks became the most beautiful as
well as the most gifted of mankind.
But it is a question whether in our modern
race after cups and colors we are
following the Greeks at all, and not
rather the factions of the Roman circus,
and the corruption of the lower empire.
Much as the Greeks prized athletic distinction,
they held professional athletes
in very, little honor. They would have
regarded with contempt a gentleman
who thought it a desirable object in life
to be a prize-fighter, a game-keeper, or
a coachman. The antagonism between-work
and games was a practical difficulty
to them, as it is to us. It was in-
deed in the palaestra that Socrates found
his readiest hearers, and dispensed his
abstrusest lore. Can we imagine a
logue such as the i Thea3tetus ' being
held in an English cricket-ground, with
the players waiting for their innings ?
. denounces the racejof
athletes in strong language, andttiero
are other signs that in his time the
danger of their expessive cultivation was
being recognized. The enthusiasm
shown by Homer and Pindar for bodily
strength had become weaker in tbp daya
of Pericles. The Greeks did not'thiuk,
as we are apt to, that athletics
ifibestfguarantee for manlinesaot climac'
inacy. They "knew that thesmindcand
body cannot be profitably exercised at
the same time, and that, the1' mind an
not the body is the seat of higher aspirations.
The Spartans whose names have
become ptoverbiaf for hardiness, were
regarded by the Athenians as brutalized
