Fin old, and the heat of life's battles
Has bleached my brown hair till it's white,
And teardrops that sparkle light diamonds
Have stole from my eyes their old light.
And low, where cold marbles are gleaming,
I laid what the world gave to me
But high, where the pure ones are waiting.
My treasures again will I see.
Tonight I have heard strains of music
That floated away long ago,
But some mystic spirit has caught them.
To chant to me now, soft and low.
I heard an old story tonight, too,
That memory lingered to tell.
Of youth that built castles in midair
That crushed hopes and dreams as they fell,
I've seen an old picture of sorrow—
A vessel that sank in the sea—
But safe in the harbor of heaven
A fair sailor boy waits for me.
I listen in dreams for his footsteps,
I almost can see his white hand
As it lifts from my heart life's dark shadows
And points me to his spirit land.
O Time, I am weary of travel!
Life's pathway is lonely for me.
And breezes that whisper about me
Seem filled with a voice from the sea.
And now I am tired—so tired—
And some night I'll lie down to rest
And dream till I wake iu the morning
In peace in the home of the blest.
—Florence Bailey Farnsworth.
Tlie Screaming Habit.
No two persons hear exactly alike.
The human internal ear is best de
scribed by likening it to a grand piano.
That instrument has a key for every
note the human ear has a nerve fila
ment for every tone and its variations.
Did I say for every tone? That is a
mistake. Some pianos have seven oc
taves, some have eight some have bet
ter tone in one portion of the keyboard
than iu another. Exactly so with the
human ear. Some persons hear acute
ly they catch sounds that to others are
but silence. Some tones strike the ear
drum, but are not conveyed to the
brain because their corresponding
nerve filament is missing. We know
of defective hearing, but we do not ap
ply our knowledge to our reasoning
when we are stating our opinions or im
pressions. To some a high note is a
positive pain, and to such ears a soar
ing soprano will do nothing but shriek.
Others will detest the lower tones. An
imals are moved out of their wonted
calm by the sound of certain notes.
It should.be our endeavor to cultivate
tones of softness and sweetness. A low
tone is the voice of comfort and conso
lation, of deepest, most sacred emotion.
Our society women should do all they
can to counteract the screaming habit
of Americans. Di Vernon in San
Two Ugly Men.
The Due de Roquelaure was a man
of great ugliness and much humor. One
day he met in the street a most -unlove
ly looking Auvergnat, who had some
petition or. memorial to present at Ver
sailles. He immediately introduced
him to Louis XIV, remarking that he
was under a special obligation to hhn.
The king granted the favor asked for
and then inquired of the due what
might be the nature of the obligation.
"But for him, your majesty, I should
be the ugliest man in your dominions!"
I am reminded of Heidegger, the
manager of the opera house in the
Haymarket when George II was king.
One day he laid a wager with the Earl
of Chesterfield that he "would not find
in all London an uglier face than his.
After a long search the earl produced
a woman of St. Giles' who at first
seemed to outvie the manager, but when
the latter put on the woman's headgear
his superior ugliness was at once ad
mitted.—All the Year Round.

THE DAT: OF THE EXODUS.
Xt Would Seem to Between the Tear*
143© and 1300 B. C.
Although the monuments and papyri
give ua no direct information upon the
subject of the exodus, they do indirect
ly indicate a certain period within
which it most have taken place. Thoth
mes III, who was the most powerful
king of that dynasty (the eighteenth)
which finally drove the Hyksos invad
ers out of Egypt and reunited the whole
country under one scepter, extended his
conquests as far as Mesopotamia, over
running Palestine on his way. He left
lists of the conquered nations, but does
not mention the Israelites among them.
Rameses of the nineteenth dynasty,
the supposed oppressor, who reigned
about 200 years later, also subdued
Palestine and left lists of the conquered
peoples, but he, again, does not men
tion the Israelites among them.
What is perhaps still more impor
tant is that, while the Israelites have
left records of invasions by Mesopota
mians, Moabites,Canaanites, Midianites
and Philistines, they do not mention
any invasion by the Egyptians, and the
conclusion is that the Israelites were
not settled on the west side of the Jor
dan till after the wars waged by Ram
eses II at the commencement of his
reign, which began not earlier than
1388 B. or, as some now say, 1266
It has been attempted to explain this
difficulty away by suggesting that Ram
eses II kept close to the seacoast on his
march through Palestine and did not
strike -inland till he was some distance
to the north of the Israelites, but it is
inconceivable that he should not have
secured his long line of communications
by establishing posts so far inland that
they must have been brought into con
tact with the Hebrews if the latter had
at that time been settled in their own

A Montana Bea Story.
"Montana is a zoological garden in
its native state," said Colonel Jim
Struthers. "We have all kinds of wild
beasts, from grizzly bears and prairie
dogs down. Speaking of bears reminds
me of once upon a time. It was before
the state got polluted by the trolley,
and when it wasn't good form to wear
a collar. It was before Montana got to
be the greatest Btate in the Union. I
was prospecting away in the Bull moun
tains. I hadn't seen any dirt that
looked as though it had the right ring
to it. Tne sun was turning in, and
shadows were coming out of the east. 1
took the pack off one of my horses,
picketed the animals and made a sup
per off hot coffee and bacon and bread.
Then I coiled up in a blanket and knew
no more. The night must have been half
spent when I began to dream that I
was washing my face in one of the gey
sers of the Yellowstone. The sensation
became so realistic that I awoke. A
hot breath was breathing1 on my visage,
and a strange tongue was swabbing me
down. I was sort of dazed with fear
and remained perfectly still. Presently
the licking process ceased, and the hot
breath was withdrawn. A big, dark,
awkward something shambled off, and
I sank to rest once more. When day
came, I found that my provision box
bad been raided, and the soft earth
around me was full of bear tracks. I
shivered a little bit and moved on."
The colonel told this as though he real
ly wanted to be believed, and the re

The new science of psychology will
determine the mental laws exactly—the
laws of the individual and of society
the laws of aesthetics, of education, of
ethics and of every human faculty.
It will compel men to live by these
laws, because it will make them plain
to all men—as plain as, the law of grav
ity. The world will then go forward
because it will see how. We shall then
have a higher manhood, because its
type will be clear to us. We shall
have anew art and a new literature, be
cause we shall know the secrets of beau
ty. Its standards shall be broader in
proportion as they shall be truer. We I
may then efficiently love our unfortu
nate brother by knowing how to make
him lovable, and hbw to make life lov
able to him. Psychology will secure
to man wealth and art, wisdom and
happiness, by making man capable of
them. Psychology will make education
the chief function of government by
giving education a scope heretofore un
conceived of.—McClure's Magazine.
Emil Frey, president of the Swiss
republic, was a soldier in an Illinois

as a sergeant with Company of the
Twenty-fourth Illinois infantry. For a

The mayor of Glasgow is called the

A capital thing they have in Glasgow
which we have not. The municipality
has constructed a number of bath
houses, fitted with huge white tiled
swimming tanks, each holding from
80,000 to 100,000 gallons of water. The
water is kept at a temperature of 70 de
grees. These baths are open day and
evening throughout the year. The ad
mission to these baths is 4 cents per per
son. Half a million bathers use these
tanks in a year. Connected with the
bath buildings are washhouses where
workingmen's wives^ do their family

5 cents per hour the use of a washing

Heliotropism is tho peculiar property
shown by many plants, notably the
sunflower, of always turning toward the
sun. In the case of seedlings the phe
nomenon is especially marked. The
cells on the light side are apparently
retarded in growth, thus causing a
curvature toward that side. Professor
Bomanes has experimented with an in
termittent light, such as that of an
electric spark discharge, upon mustard
seedlings, and has found that the helio-(
tropic effect produced in this way is far
greater than that caused by the sun or
any other form of light. Strange to
say, however, this abnormal influence
is unaccompanied by the generation of
phlorophyll, the green coloring matter
in plants which requires sunshine for
its proper production.—Pall Mall Oa

The lake and the mountain are feebly

many stars, invisible to the eye, are re

Every building is of stone, after the

house to consider the Hawaiian matter.
•'I make the point that the gentleman
is out of order," shouted Mr. McMillin.
"Congress," respondsd Mr. Boutelle,
"should have the right to repudiate the

to unload lrom congress and the Demo

"There must be some limit," declared
the speaker sharply, "there must be
some limit to the right of the gentleman
to violate the privileges of the house.
