A Moon-l ath,.
Last night I saw the silver moon;
It was a pretty sight.
It filled the street, it filled my room
With such a shining light
That I could see to go to bed
Without the gas high overhead.
I wish we had a silver moon
Each night the whole year through ;
I think 'twould make a child all good,
And clean and pure-don't you ?
After the bath-tub big and white
To take a bath in silver light.
Hardly any animal is so well known
to us as is the cat. It is found in
nearly every home, and seems to be
the proper ornament of the hearth.
But common as it has become, pussy
is not a native of the British Isles, for
it is not a descendant of the wild cat
once hunted in England and Scotland
for its fur. Our fireside friend came
from the far east, probably from Per
sia, which can still provide such bea
tiful specimens. In Egypt it was ac
;ually an object of worship, and cat
mummies are sometimes found in the
land of the Pharaohs. Considering its
eastern origin it is passing strange
that no mention of it occurs in the
Bible. This was due, so it has been
said, to the fact that the Jews of old
did not love animals and that they
saw so much cat worship during their
stay in Egypt that they took a spe
cial dislike to the animal. The Dutch
in the other hand, remarking how
stoutly it fought for life and liber
ty, chose the cat for their ensign.
An Aesthetic Ctknary Bird.
I wonder if, among the thousands
of children who love and care for pet
canaries, many realize that there is
just as much difference in the char
acters and dispositions of the birds as
there is in their little owners. Some
birds are out and out aristocrats, while
others are the veriest little plebeians.
I had once a canary who, in spite of
all my bribes, entreaties and coaxings,
simply would not bathe. Every time
I came near his cage with the little
white bathtub filled with water, he
would curl up into the sulkiest little
yellow ball you can possibly imagine.
High on the topmost perch would he
sit, the very picture of rage. If 1
put the tub in the cage, he would
fight me, shriek out little discordant
cotes, and fly into such a tempest
of anger that for fear he would hurt
himself I had to take out the hated
So deep seated was this yellow
atom's aversion to bath that I named
eis "Tramp;" and, although as a mat
ter of form I still took the tub to
him daily, I had resigned myself to
his untidy nature, when, one day, I
accidentally broke the white tub, and
in its place I chanced to take a cu
riously shaped little Japanese dish
of blue and white china.
As I came near the cage, "Tramp's"
joyous morning carol stopped short,
and he flew up to his topmost perch,
as sulky a lituLe bird as you would
care to see. But what is this? I
placed the dish in the cage; and as the
sharp little black eyes rested on it,
the yellow ball flew down with out
stretched wings and glad chirps of
joy, perched for an instant bn the
brim of the dish, and then splashed
into the water with every indication
of the utmost joy. I was amazed, of
course, and could not unaerstand the
change. Day after day went by and
each morning Tramp welcomed his
bath in the blue and white dish.
Then, one morning, the blue and
white dish was broken; and I prof
fered a white one similar to tae old
Once more Tramp showed the old
aversion to his bath. Sulkier than
ever now, he flew on his topmost
pereh, an. greeted me with shrill
chirps of rage. So it continued, till I
found another blue and white dish.
Thea my aesthetle little pet resumed
his daily bath.--hriatian Register.
Fosy's New Collar.
One day while I was eating my
breakfast of bread and potatoes Elsie
said: "Wouldn't it be nice if Fox had
a collar? He shall have one, shan't
he, Mother? Do buy him one, please
do." And my mistress said, "Yes."
I didn't think much about it then.
I didn't know what a collar was, but
I've found out now.
Next nay Elsie sat in the parlor
studying and I was gnawing her
shoes, when my mistress came in and
gave Elsie a little package. And Elsie
jumped up so quick she knocked me
over, and clapped her hands, and cried:
"Oh, mother, you really did. It's the
loveliest little collar I ever saw.' And
I jumped up and barked, too.
Just then I found a newspaper and
dragged it up to Elsie, 'cause I thought
she wanted to tear it up, like I do
when I feel glad. She looked so glad,
you know. And I guess she did want
it for she tried to tear it away from
me, and then I dodged 'round the
room, so's she could have some fun
But at last she caught me and took
away that beautiful newspaper, and
just think-threw it in the waste pa
per basket Then she held me down
and fastened something around my
neck. I didn't run away. I sat still,
wonoering what that funny thing was
'round my neck.
Then I remembered that newspaper
and I wanted it But when I moved
something jingled. I cocked my head
and listened and it Jingled again. I
wondered wJere the noise came from,
and I ran [ll 'round the room, hunt
ing for It. and all the time it kept
jingling in my ears, and all the time
Elsie and my mistress sat there and
laughed at me.
It worried me awfully. I thought it
was a new l ttof rat, and I tore all
sver the hodth looking for the rat,
with Ldas jingle in my. ears It drove
me 'most crasy, I can tell you.
But now I've found out it was two
little bells on that collar thing on
my neck that jingled so. And though
I don't nind it so much now as I did
at first I keep scratching and working
hard to get that collar off. I haven't
got it off yet, but I will some day. I
don't like much things on my neck.

Whas the Geld Piece loeught.
It was a happy day for the little
Jacksons, for that very morning father
had broken the toy beak and counted
all the pennles and nickels, and had
taken them down town with him. and
at dinner time brought back a beauti
fal gold piece in their place. And,.
more than that, mother said that, just
as soon as Hit was quiate well again,
they would take the gold piee and

with iee cream, you know, sad esek
era to pull and take out tisueplpet
caa 8so, of course, they wore happy.
And Tom and Dick a4d Meg and
Johnnle-Jump-Up all kissed Hit
harder than usual and started off to
school again in high glee.
Mother was very busy that after
noon. She was packing a box ethalf
worn clothes to send out west to Un
cle Dick's poor people; and while she
brushed and folded and smothed little
dresses Hit toddled about and reached
for things she ought not to have. She
reached for the big vase on the table
and Meg's doll and many other things,
but the only thing she got was some
thing round and yellow and not',very
large; and when mother opened the
fat little fist and looked to see what
it was, it turned out to be the gold
Miss Mehitable Jackson would not
give the money up. So mother let her
alone, only trying to keep an eye on
the young lady and the gold piece, to
see that no harm came to either of
them. The day passed away and after
a while the children came trooping
home from school. The very first
thing they wanted-after being well
kissed, of course-was the gold piece
that was going to buy the patty.
'then a dreadful thing came to light.
The gold piece had disappeared. They
searched high and they searched low.
Mother shook out Hit's little skirts
and looked carefully under every rug
in the room. But there was no sign
of the money. Then she asked the
baby, "Darling, did you put it into
the drawer?" and "Did moLner's baby
throw the pretty money out of the win
dow?" And to every question Hit
would show her tiny teeth in a smile,
and answer, "Yes"-which, you know,
was very annoying to the children,
they wanted the party so much.
When father came home he said he
would buy another toy bank, and they
would start all over again; bdt they
could not quite give up the hope of
finding their gold piece, and every
few days Meg or Dick or one of the
others would insist on turning the
rugs all up again or putting Miss Hit
through new questions as to where
she had put their money. But it was
always toe same, and they did not
learn anything new.
It was.about a month later when
mother got a letter from Uncle Dick
about the clothes for his poor.people.
sue read the letter through at break
fast; and as she came to the last part
she gave a f'nny little cry, and said:
"Oh, ch.adren,'do listen to this."
Every spoon went down into the
oatmeal plates, and every child pricked
up his ears and listened while mother
"And the best of all was the surprise
in the pocket of the smallest coat
Meg's it must have been. If your lit
tle ones could have seen the joy that
gold piece brought, they would have
had a pleasure nothing else can give
Tell them all about it. Tell them the
little coat with the precious money
went to a baby girl-a little lame thing
whose back has often ached for the
easy chair they have given her now.
And tell them tne children had a party
-all the youngsters from the neigh
borhood, each one feeling very fine in
something out of the big box. And
the way those little chaps joined hands
and danced about their crippled queen
was a uelight to see."
There was a little more about can
dy and apples the children were so de
lighted with; and then mother looked
arount. at the children a minute, anr
"Shall I write Uncle Dick it was a
mistake? Perhaps the chair has not
been bought yet, and we .ould still
get the money and buy the party."
Anu such a regular chorus came
back, "Oh, no, mother, oh, no," that
Hit took it up, and thumped her spoon
against her silver cup to a lively
"rat-tat-tat," and sang "Oh. no, oh,
no." until Jane came in and took her,
wriggling and squealing, of to the
kitchen.-Augusta Kortrecht, in Bun

CRAZY CROCKERS DREAM.
Dis Predetles ot a Traseeestisestal
attrlI el RdSeleld.
The National Magasine has an inter
esting article on the development of
American railroad systems, by E. 3.
Clark, grand chief conductor of the
Order of Railroad Conductors.
When the late "Charie Crocker of
Central Pacific railway fame, crossing
the plains in the tortles was by ox
tean~ over the old emigrant trail from
Council Bluffs to San Francesco, he
frequently predicted that within a
comparatively few years a steam rail
road would be running across the con
tinent, following substantially the
same course traveled by them. His
prediction was considered so absurd
by his associates that he was nick
named "Crasy Crocker." Mr. Crock
er had the satisfaction of not only see
ing his prediction come true, but of
being one of the leading spirits In the
construction of the frst transcontinen.
Since Mr. Crocker's dream was re
alised and the first transcontinental
line was completed five ofher distinct
1and separate lines have been built to
the Pacific coast, namely: The Cana
dian Pacific, the Great Northern, the
Northern Pacific, the Santa Fe, and
the Southern Pacific. With the exten
sion of the roads and the building up
of large systems has come a corre
sponding increase in the amount of
business, and the building of railroads
in unsettled and comparatively onex
plored portions of our doman has done
more to develop the resaources of the
country than all other ageocies put

'TIE T IlAlES IERRORS,
WHEN It DOtS NOT TELL THE MIND
A TRUE STORY.
lad to Relate There Are Times When
One Cannot Believe His Own Eyes-Our
Optios Are Easily Deceived-Educated
by Experlence Alone.
A paper by Archibald Hobson in the
St. Nicholas explains some "queer er
rors of the eye."
We all cherish the notion that our eyes
can make no mistake. "Seing is believ
ing" is an old and respected maxim. We
depend on our sight more than on any
of our other senses. Civilization has
dulled for us our smell and hearing, and
our taste and touch play but small parts
in our life. The average person does not
pride himself on his keenness of smell,
hearing, touch, or taste, but he would be
loath to admit that he could not "be
lieve his own eyes." Notwithstanding,
there are many cases, as we shall see.
in which the eye shows itself to be but
a poor judge of facts, incapable of telling
to the mind a truthful story of what it
We see everything, in short, by the,
light of experience alone. New-born
babies, while they have eyes, see not.
The eye is a camera pure and simple, and
until its impressions can he developed
in the consciousness, what it sees means
nothing. The baby first learns to dis
tinguish light from darkness: then it
learns to recognize its mother, then its
father: then it learns, perhaps, to dis
tinguish some bright color, red it nri
be; then it learns to discriminate 15e:
tween near and Tar objects. It looks
at the nearest house down the street
and takes it to be of about the size of its
Noah's ark, for so it appears to be
Later it goes to that house and discovers
that it is as big as its own house, which
now, at a distance, in turn, looks smaller
Gradually it makes its way from the
known to the unknown, using its own
experiences as stepping stones. The eye
knows no such thing as size or distance
in the abstract and apart from reasoning
but knowing one by experience, it can
make a sure estimate of the other.
The average woman cannot judge how
much a foot is within several inches
but site can estimate a yard very closely
while with the average man the case is
reversed. If some one asked you which
was the longest a horse's head from the
tip of his ears to the end of his nose
or an ordinary flour-barrel, you , tid
naturs'ly say the barrel, thoug'h the
horse's head is the longer. The rye is
very easily deceived if it is called on to
pass judgment on something that has not
been brought home to it by experience.
The landlubber at sea greatly undestsi
mater the distance of passirrg ships, hav
ing no familiar lankmarks with which tc
mfke comparisons. Truthful men under
oath in court often disagree widely a'
to observed facts, and no doubt with
perfect honesty. We will not distrust
our eyes, though no doubt they deceive
us oftener than we realize.
There should be an element of illu
sion in every picture, and the true artist
is one who knows how to make asiow
anee for this. So also in architecture
Measurements of the -finest buildings
left us by the ancients show us conclu
sively that the skillful architects of those
old times understood perfectly about the
illusive effects of lines on the eye, for
they so designed their buildings as tc
counteract such defects of vision. The
walls, instead of being vertical, lean inI;
tall windows are wider at the top than
at the bottom; columns swell in the mid
die instead of being straight, the top
lines of the buildings, instead of being
strictly horizontal, are considerably
higher in the middle, and so on. With
out doubt much of the beauty of these
classic buildings was due to the recogni
tion of such principles in their convtruc
tion. Modern architects generally ig
nore everything of this kind and build
strictly by the square, level and plumb
line. There are fine buildings in every
city tha. have been made to suffer in
this way, for, though really well built,
their walls appear to lean outward, or
their cornices to sag in the middle, ard
Soaep Soft Water and Washine.,
It is commonly supposed that the use
of soft water-rain water, fcr example
-for washing purposes econothizes soap.
But while it is perfectly true that the
lime salts in hard water nullily to some
extent the soap by forming insoluble
lime soaps, yet the expenditure of soap,
at least in toilet purposes, will be found
to be considerably less th.a when rain
water is used, while the clear sing effect
is just as good. The explanation of this
is that soap is so very readily soluble
in soft water that considerably more
soap is used than is necessary. Every
body knows the slippery feeling of rain
water in which the hands have been
rashed with soap; and no amount of
,insing would appear to remove the soap
iness from the skin. In this case it is
doubtful which soap is used whether.
after all, rain water or soft water is
better for the complexion or skin than
hard tap water. It is certainly not so re
freshing. In manufacturing processes or
in the washtub it is true the use of soap
in soft water is an economy. It is in
this way, of course, that the addition of
soda, throwing out the lime salt. saves
soap. It has been estimated that if Lon
don were supplied with soft water the
saving of soap would amount to tens of
thousands of pounds per annum. and
Glasgow is estimated to save £36.ooo an
nually in the matter of soap since using
Loch ICKatrine water. That may be so
but in the matter of personal wasvhing
there is a waste of soap produced rather
than an economy by using soft water.
The fact that a tablet of soap dlisap;Lears
much more quickly when .rain watsr ir
used instead of hard tap water is prof
of this assertion.-The Lancet.

had not put the label quite straight on
the smaller bottle, and took it off again.
Before replacing the label he licked it to
make sure of its sticking properly: but
while pouring he had inadvertenly let a
drop or tyo trickle on the outside of
the bottle where he had alfixed the label.
Then, when he touched the label with
his tongue, he felt as if something shot
lang that smember and also a jump of
his heart, so he rushed to a tap, which
was fortunately cose at hand, and put
Iis tongue under the ruaning water.

ace wherein the late Dowager Empress
Frederick died, is one of the most
beautiful country seat possessed by
the royalty of Europe. It is natural,
therefore, that envious eyes should be
now cast at Princess Frederick Carl of
Hesse because, by the will of her de
ceased mother, she comes into posses
sion of this estate. It is a spacious and
sumptuously furnished palace, sur
rounded by a magniicent park, set Is
some of the most romantic country
scenery in Germany. Upward of $1,000,
000 was spent by its recent occupant In
improving house and grounds. The
young princess who is soon to occupy
it is one of the sweetest-faced members
of German royalty. She is the fifth and
youngest child of the late Empress
Dowager, and was the favorite during
the last few years of her life. She was
born April 22, 1872, and was named
Margarethe. Her marriage to Prince
Frederick Carl of Hesse occurred in
January, 1893, and she has three sons.
