has been the case in the past, and the

I once had a conversation, said an
fsle of Man bank manager, speaking
of Hall Caine, with two old friends of
mine' a farmer and his buxom wife,
who live within a few yards of Grecba
castle, the gTeat Manx author's resi
dence. Hall Caine had just taken up
his abode iu hia uew bouse, and I start
ed the conversation by saying to the
worthy farmer and wife:
"So you have the great Hall Caine
near you now?"
Farmer and Wife Aye, man.
Farmer's Wife And what tremenjns
style they re keeping! It's amazing.
Farmer And what's be doing for a

Holdlngr the Laddfr.
A workinau In Cooper Institute, hav
ing occasion to ascend a ladder to do
some repairing in one of the public
rooms, called to an old man whom be
happened to 6ee standing by watching
him, "Here, old fellow, bold the ladder
for me, won't you?" The "old fellow"
started forward and held the ladder
for the workman while he climbed up
and did his work.
"That unpretentious and willing old
man," says The Independent, "was re
fer Cooper." It was just like him. Te
ter Cooper's aim in life and in the be
neficent Institution founded by him
might well be characterized by the
words "holding the ladder." Thou
sands of rightly ambitious men and
women owe the possibility of their ad
vancement to Peter Cooper. He has
held, and still holds, the ladder, and
hundreds upon hundreds of successful
and grateful climbers as they rise bless
his memory. We cannot all build 6ucb
piles as Cooper, Union, but we can hold
the ladder somewhere, somehow, for
Oar First Emperor.
At the time when the war with Spain
had been brought to a successful close
a number of statesmen were discussing
the future of the country over, their
cigars in Washington.
At last one enthusiast exclaimed, ad
dressing himself to the most promi

opinion we are drifting directly toward
Imperialism, and you, sir, should be the

man; "I am not fool enough to want

OrlKln of "Cnder Ibe now."
In Greek mythology the rose was the
symbol of silence, as it was said that
Cupid, the son of Venus, gave the god of
silence a golden rose as a bribe to con
ceal the amours of the goddess of love.
It was, therefore, sculptured on the
ceilings of banqueting halls and placed
as a sign above the doors of question
able resorts. Guests at feasts were
crowned with roses to intimate that
their conversations while In their cups
were not to be repeated elsewhere.
The phrase obtained currency in
Greece after Pausanias. the admiral of
the Greek fleet, plotted with Xerxes to
betray the cause of the Greeks by sur
rendering the ships, the negotiations
being conducted in a small banqueting
hall, the roof of which was, as usual,
covered with sculptured roses. The
plot, however, was discovered and or
ders given for the arrest of the traitor.
Pausanias endeavored to make his ref
uge in a temple which possessed the
right of asylum. Unwilling to violate
the sanctity of the place by forcibly
removing him and still more unwilling
to allow him to escape, his fellow citi
zens walled up every entrance and,
by one account, left him to die of star
vation; by another,' killed him by un
roofing the building and throwing
down the tiles on his bead. -
