stand me instead under every variety of
circumstances, and be a source of happiness

this taste, and the means of gratifying it,
and you can hardly fail of making him a

books. You place him in contact with the

the bravest and the purest characters who
have adorned humanity. You make him a

opening of the Eton Library, 1833.
"One of the late events was the celebra
tion of the anniversary of tho death of the
Spanish poet Calderon. His tomb was vis
ited by a large concourse of people, who
afterwards marched past it in procession.
The troops defiled by the poet's statue in
the presence of the king and royal family.
Calderon was one of the few earlier poets,
whose life was one of ease and comfort. In
his philosophic dramas Calderon is his best,
lie was a man of deep thought, and many
passages may be extracted from hie works
which, taken independent nf thir mr
roundings, form perfect poems. One, from
' Life is a dream," coutains deep philoso
phy. It is spoken to comfort an unfortun
ate prince whose father has confined him
from childhood in an isolated forest cool:
An ancient sage, once on a time, they say,
Who lived remote, afar from mortnl sight,
Sustained his feeble life as heat he-might,
With herbs and berries gathered by the way.
"Can any other one, said he one day.
So poor, so destitute as I, he found ?"
And when be turned his head to look around,
He saw tbo answer; creeping slowly there,
Came an old man who gathered np with care
The herbs, which he had ca.t upon the ground."
MIRS MCLOCK's ROMANCE.
"It was 'John Halifax,' published after
6he was thirty years old, that brought her
fame, and made the task of earning her
daily bread a little less arduous. Seven
years later she was awarded a pension of
three hundred dollars a year. She was
nearly forty when she married. In 18G5
Captain George Lillio Craik, an officer in
the English army, who had been in tho
Crimea, met Miss Mulock, and although
some years her junior, addressed her and
succeeded in winning her hand. They
proved most congenial companions, and
their married life was all they could wish,
with but one exception, the woman whoso
love for children amounted almost to a
passion, who wrote 'Philip, My Kin?,' was
denied the happiness of fueling baby fin
gers upon her cheek or of ever hearing
herself called mother. This was a
Bcvcro sorrow; but even this pain has been
partly assauged. Strangely enough, one
dark, rainy night, while she and her hus
band were speaking of children and of the
joy and brightness they bring to so many
dwellings, there came a loud ring at the
bell and then a furious knocking. On
opening the door, lying upon tho sill they
found a basket enclosed in many wrappings.
When they were removed they discovered
a lovely littlo baby only a few hours old.
Tho child was wrapped in ono roll after
another of India muslin, and on its breast
was piuncd a note, begging Mrs. Craik to
be kind to tho littlo waif thus brought to
her door, and assuring bor that no mean
blood flowed in its viens. Tenderly sho
she lifted the little thing in her arms and
her heart opened as warmly to tako in tho
poor littlo deserted creature. They called
.ho child Dorothea, God given, and she bo
camo their adopted daughter, as tenderly
cherished and as passionately loved as
though sho had been their own."

Raise Pure Bred Poultry.
It Is demonstrated beyond a doubt
that there is not only pleasure but profit
in poultry raising. Hardly a farmer
who has given the subjoet any attention
whatever has failed to arrive at the con
clusion that tho hennery yields him a
greater per cent, on his money invested
than any other stock of farm products.
Now tho question naturally HttggnsLs it
self, "What kind must he koep?" One
man says. "I'll bo dogged if I'm goin'
to pay live dollars a trio for chickens."
Another says, "Tho old common hens
that wo had when I was a boy aro tho
best hen yet."
Now, see here neighbors, I'll just an
swer your objections in my way and see
what facU and figures prove. The an
swer to ono answers tho other. Ono
man don't liko tho price; very well.
When you spend from ten to twenty or
thirty years in establishing a breed of
poultry, $5 per trio will bo as small in
your eyes as tho willow's mite is now.
But you say all breeders do not estab
lish new breeds. Very true, but it costs
nearly as much to keep a well defined
breed pure us it does to make them so.
A breed oneo established requires con
stant and faithful watching to keep it
so. But they ant worth it, supposing it
costs no riioio than it does to keep a
dung-hill breed? I come down square
toed on tho question and answer yes,
most emphatically. For instance, let
us compare the Partridge Cochin with
the common fowls. Tho grade will at
the end of eight months from tho shell
weigh five pounds, if in good flesh. Tho
Cochin; at the end of Hint time, should
weigh, if properly fed, nine pounds or
nearly double. 1 havo Cochins of tho
same ago of somo of my grades that
weigh nearly double, on the same feed.
Then, if it pays to keep tho grade, it
wi doubly pay to keep tho puro bred.
In eggs there is not much difference,
hut yet enough to keep the full-blooded
fowl". Then, as a, breeder of high poul
try, your chickens aro sought for at a
price as high, or nearly so, as that nt
which you obtained your first breeding
fowls. Try it.
. A Terrible Charge
At a Danville hotel dinner-table, con
versation turning upon the war, a Rich
mond (Vti.) mercantile traveler protest
en against a compliment to tho North
Carolina Confederates, claiming that
North Carolina troops wero never ready
for action except at meal times, and that
they woul'Vjl't fight anybody but each
other and then only when there was
whisky in camp. "Why," he added,
"in ono engagement some dismounted
Virginia dragoons had to charge right
over tho backs of a regiment of those
cowardly 'tar-heels' who lay Hat on
their bellies afraid to get up.
"An' them foot cavalry rid right over
the rosin-chawers, did they?" put in an
oia cuap wno had uccn too busy to
"Right over them!" repeated tho
drummer, evidently pleased to observe
tho apparent interest and delight of the
odd looking old gentleman.
"Well," said tho old man, "though
I'm a Careliner coon myself, I'm free
to acknowledge that them Forginians
allera did beat h I a chargin. They'd
charge right over anything. Why,"
he continucd(and even the active waiter
stopped to listen), "I've know'd 'em

Would horses or a yacht havo dono as
much? The growth of privato libraries
in tho United States is tho largest un
seen fact. Lost summer at Brighton,
England, a book-dealer said to me:
"You must bn getting great libraries
together in America." Isaid I had not
heard of it. "Wo have sent over a num
ber of very largo batches of books on
three occasions this year to American
book-dealers. Rare Americana is in
moro request than any class of books,
and wo understand our experience to bo
that of tho trade generally." I looked
into tho matter on my return and found
that tho book treasures of tho United
States vi'ero private property. "I never
heard of a library breaking any man,"
said a book-dealer in Philadelphia.
"Somo other form of dissipation may
sacrifice n library, but books, of them
selves, never ruin people."
Dangers of Athletio Training
Absoluto health is attained only by
the symmetrical development of all
parts of the body. Tho man with mus
cles of steel and a diseased heart can
not bo said to bo in good health, and
diseases of stomach, heart and nervous
system are often it may bo said usu
ally produced by that system of deve
lopment called training. At a recent
rowing match in Philadelphia two
plucky lads, in contesting boats, fairtted
as soon as the race was over. Their
condition, which was apparently good,
was actually abnormal, and their system
gave way because tho strain which
their muscles met was too great for their
vital function. Recently a similar but
