''The lark'n on the wing,

G< da in bis heaven,
ALa right with the world."
Tbe above quotation is suggestive of
spring and the springtime of life and was
anost appropriately used on dainty hand
painted place cards by the class in do

rated with apple blossoms and dainty
designs of the same fljwer adorned the

luncheon served being in every way a
credit to the young ladies who prepared
aod served it, and to their instructor in
this most necessary science, Miss Jose-
phine McOann. Small tables were set
for the function in one end of the High
school ivmoacium, which had been
screened off for the purpose, and each

of the class, Minn McCann presiding over
all. The guests expressed their appreci
ation of the luncheon by their evident
enjoyment of the delicious viands pro
«'^, and before leaving the tables gave
>oanimouß vote of thanks to the
teases. Miss McCann responded for
the class, expressing their appreciation
of the interest shown in their work by
the club. After luncheon the ladies
-virtited the kitchen and availed them
«elves of the opportunity to copy recipes
of some of the good things of which they
had partaken. This department of the
High school is in a most flourishing con
dition, the equipment being good, and

McCann has been retained by the dirt ct

preside over the department next year.

It was quite a fashionable bridge
party, and one of the players was a
small, nervous young thing, not sure
of any of her plays and fearfully
afraid of her partner, a living proof
of the existence of that much discuss
ed creature, the "bridge fiend."
"1 returns your lead then." said the
other player frigidly, "and I am sure
we would not have lost if you had dis
carded correctly. Would you mind tell
ing me what you have been discarding
from—strength or weakness?"
The nervous ybuug thing lifted her
eyes with a Hash of spirit.

Nature's Scene Shifting.
Although in the geological past Tast
changes of lest', occurred on the bor
ders and even in the center of conti
nents, it is ■ debated question whether
at present similar elevations and sub
sidences can be detected. Recently the
frequently repeated statement that the
coasts of Massachusetts and New Jer
sey are perceptibly sinking has been
disputed, the apparent subsidence be
ing ascribed to simple changes of
shore lino. But some curious records
kept in Europe seem to indicate that
actual fluctuations of the level of the
land may occasionally be observed. In
the valley of the Main a church tower
hidden behind a mountain screen has
since 1861 gradually risen into plain
view from the chateau of Stmssen
dorf. and still farther in the same di
rection another church tower, which
began to be visible from Strossendorf
eighty years ago. is now clearly seen
above the horizon and is said to rise
higher as time goes on. Similar rec
ords exist in Bohemia, in Switzerland,
in Spain and in the French Jura.
There is an old dread of encounter
ing a derelict that is just below the
surface of the water. There is no
such danger. A derelict that will sink
below the surface will sink to the bot
tom. Take a tub of water and try to
find any object that will unattached
occupy a position that is other than at
the surface or at the bottom. There
is a long task ahead of you. There is
the false theory that the water prows
denser as one goes deeper and that a
sinking object will rind a place where
it will remain suspended. This theory
is not correct, ami a boat that will
sink beneath the surface will sink to
the bottom, even If that bottom should
be twenty miles down. The derelict
that is bumped into has a piece of it
self sticking out of the water as an
alarm if the eyes of the lookout are
only sharp enough to catch It.—New

In whose household no doubt exists aa

an interesting story relative to the last
trifling passage at arms between hus

fore dinner the wife, who had been
playing bridge all the afternoon, came
in to find her husband and a strange
man (afterward ascertained to be a
lawyer) engaged in some mysterious
business over the library table, upon
which were spread several sheets of
"What are you doing with all that
paper, Henry?" demanded the wife.
"I am making a wish." meekly re
sponded the husband.
"Yes, my dear. In your presence T
shall not presume to call it a will."—

It was a revival meeting, and the
church workers were working up and
down the aisles. A gray haired woman
past middle aire approached a sedate
looking gentleman who occupied a rear
seat on the end of the row. Placing
her hand on his shoulder with maternal
touch, she said:
"Don't you think you would like to
be a Christian?"
"My dear madam," he began, "don't
you know that I am professor of theol
ogy in tho little seminary at the other
end of the town?"
The woman, a homely character, and
ignorant of the "isms" and "ologies"
of the modern curriculum, gave answer
in smooth accents;

Kitty Clive, the paramount soubrette
of Garriek's time, was celebrated for
her temper and her spiteful tongue.
She denied 'little Davy" had skill in
tragedy and mocked at him when he
prepared to put on "Hamlet." During
the performance she stood in the
wings, intending to scoff, but she was
carried away with enthusiasm in spite
of herself and applauded vigorously.
"Well, Kitty," asked (Jarrick as he
came off the stage, "have 1 convinced
you that I can act in tragedy?"
Kitty burst into tears of vexation,
declaring, '-Why. you. Davy, you
could act a gridiron:"
