Where Love built his humble neat
Tired and thankful did I rest.
Sweeter rest there could not be,
Though the black night covered me,
And Love whispered, "Art thou blest?"
And I answered, "Love is best."
Where Love built his nest I knew
Thorns beneath the rose leaves grew.
Sweeter roses could not be,
Though the keen thorns crept to me.
And Love whispered, "Art thou blest?"
And I answered, "Love is best."
Where Love built his nest a blight
Slew from lands of Death and Night.
All that life had held of sweet
Lay in ashes at Love's feet.
Yet I—folded to his breast
Weeping, whispered, "Love is best."
So, with Love abidBng still,
.I am Love's, to do his will,
So his lips on mine are laid,'
So his hand my couch hath made.
Still he whispers, "Art thou blest?"
Still I answer, "Love is best."
ARTIST AND CRITIC.
The Former Owes a Debt to the letter,
Although Seldom Acknowleged.
The debt which the artist owes the
oritio is not a small one, nor is it any
the less actual for being commonly lost
sight of. It is a current belief that the
public is educated by the mere existence
of the good work of art, and not by the
elucidation of its commentators. Edu
cation by absorption is perhaps the most
deep going and farreaching form of edu
cation, but" it has never been found
practicable to rely upon it solely in
other branches of- mental acquisition.
Then why believe that it can be relied
upon solely for the proper development
of the art sense? In effect it never is
and cannot be. How many people care
-about poetry, let us say—feel it, are
reached by it? And can one doubt that
if a more loving and careful analysis of
such of its products as appear today
were undertaken by critics competent to
convey to an indifferent public the
perennial value of its ministrations,
some of the unresponsiveness of the
average reader would disappear, and
some perception of the eternal signifi
cance of the.poet's message would ex
tend to the classes now given over to
nothing more tonic in the way of read
ing than the daily newspaper? We say
that one is born with the feeling for
the enjoyment of poetry and another is
not. Not so. At least, to say this is not
to say all. The feeling for the highest
aesthetic enjoyment and appreciation is
cultivable, and cultivable as is any oth
er faculty, by studying the material to
be enjoyed, by reverently conning its
constituent parts. In short, a vague,
dreamy delight in the presence of some
beautiful work of the artistic spirit is
not enough. It is not enough for intel
ligence, it is not enough especially to
produce the atmosphere of interest
which stimulates the painter, the musi
cian, the writer, to sustained effort and
keeps him true to the pitch. We love
best what we know best. To rest in
loving without knowing is often the
merest sentimentality—a sentimentali
ty toward which our Germanic forefa
thers had always a leaning, while it
was especially antagonistic to the lucid
Greek and Latin spirit.—"The Super
fluous Critic," by Aline Gorreu, in
The Old Sailor's Tarn.
"Yes," said the old fellow who pro
fessed to have been a sailor and who
hitched his unmentionables and rolled
in his walk that he might look the part,
"I was marooned onct.
"It's a solemn fack, gents. Fur ..ten
years I lived alone on a South sea is
land. I wasn't jest deserted there, but
the ship blowed up an I was the only
one what ever reached land ag'in. I
floated on a spar to that there deserlate
island. None of you gents knows what
it is to be lonely, to have no feller bein
to jaw with, to see nuthin above but
the heavens and nuthin ''round you but
water. I would a died if I hadn't ketch
ed a sea gull and trained him so he
would mind like a dog."
Here a sympathetic listener piped the
old fellow up to grog, and he seemed to
lose his bearings. "Ten times I writ
home," he went on, "and half a dozen
times I cabled."
"Why, you old fraud," interrupted
a fresh water sailor who had been tak
ing in the narration, "if you could send
letters and cablegrams, you weren't
marooned. What kind of a game is this
you're givin us?"
But the old salt was equal to the oc
casion. Over he tumbled on the floor,
he went through the outward symptoms
of a fit, had to be supplied with another
dose of restorative and when he came
to, looked about him in a dazed way.
"What hev I been sayin, gents?" he
asked faintly." "Ever since I was maroon
ed I have these here spells and go to un
windin novels. It was fur ten years,
gents," and thelastword floated back
as he made a dash through the front
door.—Detroit free Press.

The Modern Way of Taking Out the Cargo
«j J*l'r Canalboat.^.
The old way of recovering coal from
a sunken canalboat was to raise the
boat, with the coal in it, to a point
where the coal could be reached. Chains
were worked under the sunken boat
from pontoons moored alongside of it.
At low tide the chains were made fast
on the pontoons, which, rising with/the
tide, lifted the sunken boat dear of the
bottom. At high water it was taken in
shore as far as possible, until it again
grounded. This operation was repeated
until the boat was brought to the sur
face. The new way, or, rather, the mod
ern way, is to pump the coal up from
the boat, wherever it may lie, and then
raise the boat, if it does not raise itself.
By this method the work is all done in
very much less time and at very much
The pump used has no pump valves.
It is a centrifugal pump, the suction
being produced by means of a disk, with
wings attached, turning at high speed
within the pump shell, a circular cham
ber, to which the suction pipe is attach
ed. An eight inch pump of this kind
will pump grate or. broken, coal easily,
and pump up a load of 300 tons in a
day. It will raise coal from a boat
sunk at any depth from 5 feet to 200 feet.
The pump and engine are installed
on a wrecking boat, which is moored
near the sunken boat. In this use the
pump has a long flexible section of suc
tion pipe attached to it, and to that
are attached the various additional
lengths of pipe that may be required to
reach down to the coal. This pipe is
made of wrought iron, and it is made
in sections of different lengths, so that
it may be joined to make a pipe of
any length desired. At each end of each
length of iron pipe is a Sanger. As
lengths of pipe are joined, the Gangers
are bolted together, with a rubber gas
ket between, to make the joint tight.
The flexible suction pipe is held out
over the water and over the sunken boat
from the wrecking boat by a gaff, and
iron pipe is added to the needed depth.
By means of the gaff the pipe may be
raised and lowered as occasion may re
quire, as, for instance, to raise the low
er end of the suction pipe from one part
of the canalboat up. and over a cross
beam connecting the sides, to be lower
ed into the coal in another part of the
When the pipe is all joined on, it is
not at once lowered into the coal. The
pump is first charged with water, which
is done in an exceedingly brief time,
and in a very simple manner by means
of a siphon attaohed to the shell of the
pump. When it has been oharged, the
pump is started and the lower end of
the suction pipe is then lowered into
the coal, and coal and water are pump
ed up together and thrown out through
the pump's discharge pipe in a continu
ous stream. A boat to receive the coal
is made fast alongside the wrecking
boat, and the coal from- the pump is
discharged upon a screen set at an in
cline between the two boats. The water
runs through the screen and the coal
runs on into the other boat.
The suction pipe can be handled for
the most part from the wrecking boat.
If any handling under water is neces
sary, a diver goes down for that pur
pose, and it may be that the diver
brings within the power of the pump's
suction remnants of coal left in nooks
and crannies which it might otherwise
not have reached. When the boat has
been emptied, if it is not too much
damaged or water soaked or too firmly
bedded in the mud, it will float of itself.
If suction holds it to the bottom, it will
rise when it has been started clear.
Pumps of this kind are made of from
2 to 60 inches in diameter.—New York
The Two Lobes of the Brain.
In the ordinary working of the brain
one half is more active than the other
and exercises a superiority on its neigh
bor lobe. This lobe—in ordinary per
sons the left, of course—is the cerebral
master. Heredity, education, or what
we will—all th,e combined influences,
in short, which mold human life—have
tended, by some process of physiological
selection, to place one lobe over the
other in point of importance. The other
(right) lobe is the servant of the left in
a measure. Its education has been neg
lected, and it requires the control of
its better cultured neighbor in order
that life may be conducted in a sensible
and sane fashion. The most hopeless
cases of insanity, Wigan would have
held, would be those in which both
hemispheres were affected. If one was
alone ailing, the other might exert
more or less control over it, and the ex
tent of the control would depend on
which lobe, exhibited the diseased ac
tion. All degrees of insanity or mental
derangement could thus be accounted
for on this supposition of the relative
control of one hemisphere by the other.
The perfect life is that in which the
better and higher half controls the
weaker and less responsibla—Andrew
Wilson, M. D., in Harper's Magazine.

The Unexpected Discovery He Made About
*." Their Appointments.
Mr. F. (a prominent historical writer)
went to President Lincoln to get an ap
pointment, and being asked of what de
nomination he was answered that he
was a Presbyterian. Well," said Pres
ident Lincoln, "I will have to look air
my book to see." He furtner said: I
am not sure but the Presbyterians are
full. I have to do this."
Mr. Lincoln then proceeded: "Bishop
Simpson was here the other day com
plaining of my cabipet's giving all the
appointments to Episcopalians. I did
not know anything about my cabinet.
I thought Blair a gool old Presbyterian
name, and as for Seward, I didn't know
until I went to church with him that
he was an Episcopalian."
President Lincoln had said to Bishop
Simpson: "You wait here. We are to
have a cabinet meeting here directly,
and I will see to it," and when the cab
inet came he said, "Here is Bishop
Simpson making a complaint of our giv
ing all the appointments to the Episco
Said Seward: "That is not true of
my department. I never give an ap
pointment to any man because of his
denomination, nor even know what he
Said Bishop Simpson: "There was
Dr. McClintock, appointed to go to
P^ris, a good Methodist, ^and Bishop
Hughes was put in his place. I suppose
you didn't- know, sir, who Bishop
Hughes was?". "Oh, I had forgotten
"Well," said Blair, "you've got him
Ihere, bishop, but there are not two in
my department that are Episcopalians.''
"Sir," said the bishop, "there are not
two that are not." Why,'' said Blair,
"that is not true, and you may come
tomorrow morning and look for your
I will be there at such atimd,". and
he was there. As he went in Blair said,
"Ah, bishop, you got Seward splendid
ly yesterday." Bishop Simpson said, I
do not come to hear about him, but
about your department."
I haven't time to see about that."
"Sir, it is of more importance than you
know. Yesterday you said there were
not two who were Episcopalians, and I
said there were not two that were not
Episcopalians," and so he forced him
to look at it, and he found that the
bishop was correct, and that there were
not Wp that were not Episcopalians.

known citizens of thiscountry, a man
of unimpeachable veracity and equal ac
curacy, who communicated it to us..—
"A Cool Un."
"He's a cool un," is the way the sol
diers in a certain English regiment de
scribe one of their officers, a young man
whose self possession in a time of dan
ger saved his men from defeat and
probably from death. The circumstance
which gave this officer his reputation
is related by Rudyard Kipling in The
Westminster Magazine. He writes:
A very young officer, who had gone
almost straight from school to the army
and thence to India, was leading his
company through a rocky pass On re
turning from a scouting expedition.
They were beset by the enemy," who
fired at them from behind the rocks,
and the men,- were growing very un
steady. Those in the rear began to be
impatient and shouted to the men in
front*: "Hurry up. What are you wait
ing for there?"
The young officer answered quite
coolly: "Hold on a minute. I'm light
ing my pipe."
And he struck a match and lit it.
There was a roar of laughter, and a sol
dier called out, "Well, since you're so
pressin, I think I'll have a pipe my
self." And he, too, struck a match and
began to smoke. This bit of fun steadied
the men, and they came through in
