"The surest way to take cold," said

A Hoosier at dinner on a Mississippi

weed before he falls a victim to the
liabit and sinks into an early grave.

A St. Louis man tripped on a rug at
the door of his bedroom, slid down a
long flight of stairs; crashed through a
glass door, down the stone door-steps,
rolled across the yard out through the
open gate, crossed the sidewalk on the
dead side, and brought up like an ava
lanche against a tree-box. , "By heav
en," he said as ho limped back to the
house, "that tree-box might have been
the death of me. If I can find the child
who left the gate open I'll wear out a
skate-strap on him."
One of Ella Wheeler's "Poems of
Passion" begins: "She touches my
cheek and I quiver I tremble with ex
quisite pain; she sighs like an over
charged river, my blood rushes on
through my veins; she smiles and in
a mad tiger fashion, as a tiger fondles
her own, I clasp her with a tiereenes3
and passion, and kiss her with shud
der and groan." 'It takes about seven

It was twilight. The red flashes
ttirown on the .window-panes by the
trettinff sun had slowlv faded . out and
given place to the first soft shadows of j
uigui, which urmg lue tuiwi uvm
hidiug-place and send the bee and the
butterfly to sleep. There was a feeling
of rest in tho room--a feeling of quiet
contentment and perfect satisfaction.
The hum of voices from other rooms
lulled instead of annoved; tho voices of
children on the street seemed far away
and had a touch of pathos. .
The old man lay in perfect ease. His
eves rested on the wall at the foot of
the bed his thin, wrinkled hands were
folded one over the other there was
no pain to deepen the lines on his
kindly face. Ha bad seen the sun go
down, and he had listened for the voice
of the cricket and the cull of tho whip-
W hat was that?
A shadow suddenly flitted across tbe
wall in front of his eves. Now Bnother
and another. Now the first shadows
flit back to head a procesr-ion. Passing
from right to left the procession moves
a procession of queef shadows. They
late on iaces as me move aiong, anu
the old man's heart beats faster as
each face comes before him. Here are
the friends of his youth faces which
frew white in death 60 long ago tnai
e had forsotten them. Tins one was
a child that a youth that a fair young
girl when he stood by and saw the earth
cover them. I hey smile at him, ana
his heart grows younger. '
One procession ends and another be
gins, .these are the taces ol men ana
women stricken down in the noonaay
of life. Some of them had shared his
hopes and sympathized with his sor
rowsall had been bis friends, lne
sea, the lake and the forest gave up
their dead to the procession of shadows,
and each face was recognized and
remembered. The procegsion moves
on and on. He is shocked to realize
that so many of his friends fell in the
battle of life while he was spared to
grow old and rest in peace.
Now comes the third procession.
There is a father, old and bent and
feeble; a mother with wrinkled, patient
face; brothers in young and middle
age; sisters who wept with him over
some of tho graves. Every face looks
as it did in life; every eye meets his
with a glad look of recognition. The
shadows wave their hands and move
on, and the old man's heart grows
childish and big.
There is another procession. The
first shadow is that of a loved wife,
who died while the snow-white locks
had scarcely turned gray. Then came
the children sons and daughters five
in all. One by one they had grown
weary and rested by the wayside,
leaving husband and father to pursue
the journey alone. The procession
halts, and every shadow holds out its
hands to the poor old man as if in
supplication. His heart swells tears
till his eyes, and he cries out to
"I sec you all I am coming!"
Back with your light! But it, is too
late. Tho glare of tho lamp flings the
twilight out of the room with hasty
hand, and the shadows, which crept
along the wall are gone forever. No
one saw them but the, old man, and vet
there is proof of thoir presence, His
poor old hands are outstretched on
his white checks are ' tears on, his
wrinkled face a smile of joy and
His spirit had joined the shadows!
A machine for picking cotton has,
the Charleston News says, been satis
factorily tested in Siimpter, 8. C. Its
capacity is 200 pounds an " hotli'. The
cost of picking the late crop by hand
was $50,000,000, or at the rate of $7 a
bale. The cost of picking by machine
will be $1 a bale. It is estimated that
a third of the crop has been cf( In the
field in seasons past because of tbe lack
of hnnds. The machine will remedy this,
Senator BocW'a Faculty.
"Talking about peculiarities of men's
minds, I heard Senator Beck toll a
queer story ; the other day," said a
gentleman to some friends, the other
night. "We were all discussing the
same subject that is up now,- when
Sonator Buck remarked that he thought
a peculiarity of his brain liad done him
a great deal of' hirra In his life. 'I
first noticed it,' said the senator, 'when
I was a boy going? to school in Scotland.
I had a strict, old praacber ton a tutor,
and, with a number of other boys,
went to the parsonage to be educated.
One night I was very sleepy, and still
had a long Latin lesson to get off. I
tried hard to learn it; but almost be
fore 1 was aware I would be dozing.
At length I read the exercise through
in a half-dreaming condition, and with
the Latin all a jumble in my bead, I
went to sleep. I awoke the next morn
ing with my brain thoroughly clear,
and, strange to say, all the ambigui
ties of my difficult lesson were-mado
Elain, and I read tho latin without a
alk. The same thing happened a
second time, and I again found that
when I went to bed with a confused
idea of my lesson, learning it while
half dozing I awoke with all the knitted
points unraveled. It became my custom
after that to read my tasks over just
before going to bed, and I never failed
to have them in the morning. My
strict old tutor saw that I never
studied, and thought one of the other
boys was helping me. At length he gave
me a page of Livy to translate, and
told me if I did not have it for him the
next morning he would flog me. He
then forbid any of the boys to come
near me and watched my actions. I
read the lines as usual before going to
sleep, and sure enough the next day I
had them pat as you please. Ho never
troubled me after that. Well, the
years passed by, and I found my faculty
still clinging to me, till I began to put
too much faith in it and depended al
most entirely upon my mysterious
helper. Some timo ago a phrenologist
came to examine my family's heads,
and they all went wild over him. I
paid no attention to their talk, though
my wife urged me to give the man a
trial One day, however, he met me,
and was so persistent that I at length
sat down to him. He said that he
would examine my head for $3, and
give me a chart for $5. I told him $3
was all I would throw away, and he
began to name characteristics. At
length he said: "You have one faculty
that is fully developed. It is spirituali
ty. You have that faculty developed
to a marked degree. You would have
made a fine medium. Your mind is
capable of working separate from your
body that is, it can perform mental
labor when the body Is at rest and
knows nothing of it. You sometimes
solve difficult problems while you are
asleep, and wake up in the morning
without knowing that you have been at '
work." "Here is $5, said I; "a man
who knows as much as you do deserves
It" 'My strange faculty,' continued
Senator Beck, 'whether it is spirituali
ty or not, is growing weaker. I can
hardly explain the action of my mind
during these abnormal spells. I see the
lines and words before my mind's eye,
and without knowing the process, or,
indeed, being aware of any process, I
work on the problem.'
"You remember John Sherman's
anecdote of Beck," continued the gen
tleman. "Beck was working day and
night on the tariff bill, when a mem
ber wondered how he got rest. "Oh,"
said Senator Sherman, who was pre
sent, 'Beck rests himself when he
makes a speech! A man who can work
when he should rest himself may be
pardoned if he rests when he should
work." Louisville Courier Journal.
