KavulHrM of Mind.
' 'Dr.- C. E. Lindberg gave an interest
ing lecture yesterday afternoon before
the Concordia society of Augustana
college on the subject of "The Lower
and Higher Faculties of the Mind."
Under the'Mower faculties Dr. Lind
berg first discussed the weak mind,
then the set or fixed mind and finally
the cunning mind.
; Under the higher faculties the
speaker classed the powers of mental
grasp, of occupying another's mind
and intuition. There are two ways
of occupying auother person's mind,
according to Dr. Lindberg. The first
is by sympathy and the second
through sentiment. The nagnetism in
Lincoln's Gettysburg speech, said the

BIBLE SCHOOL AND CHURCH

At the Memorial Christian church

A Throne and a North Wind.
Long had Gustavus Vasa sought to
rouse his fellow countrymen, the
Swedes, against the infamous Danish
tyrant Christian, whose memory will
always be linked with that of: the
"blood bath" of Stockholm. But the
brave Gustavns found his compatriots
cowardly and slow. An outlaw him
self, no. voice was raised in the nsseia
bly in hisv favor. He called upon the
people to tight, but they sat sullen
around him. Suddenlya cold wind
rose 'from the north,, (nrjd an old count
trymnnt crled'God approves of the
designs of Vasa, for a north wind is
always a happy presagp." Thee sim
ple words acted like magic. The men
Pew to arms and prayed Gustavns to
lead them against the Danes. In a few
days he had collected an army large
and brave enough to give battle to the
formidable troops of the king of Den
mark. Victory was theirs from, the
first, and the capture of Stockholm In
1523 placed Hie crown of Sweden upon
Vasa's head. rearson's Weekly.
West Pointers on the Battlefield.
One thing of which all West Pointers
felt proud was the lotherly love and
kindness shown -by both sides to fel
low graduates when taken prisoners
or when otherwise id distress. I hare
heard the story told of Fitzhugb Lee
that on one occasion when scouting
with a squadron of cavalry in the de
batable country between , Fairfax
Courthouse and Alexandria he cap
tured a picket of a similar commander
under Tom Height and learned that
the latter was taking breakfast In a
farmhouse. Fitz went In alone, found
Tom at table with his back to the door,
so he was able to get up to htm nnd
slap him on the back before saying,
"I think. Tom. you might have put out
one- picket." They took breakfast to
gether, and then Fitz sent an escort to
conduct him to the Federal lines and
bring back his horse, having of course
first paroled him. This was to save
him from Libby prison. General S. W.
Ferguson in Metropolitan Magazine. '.
Champagne corks are marie of th?
very finest Catalonia corkwood. When
the tree of that wood is planted, thirty
years must elapse before it becomes fit
for the first stripping of the bark, and
even then the cork is of no use. being
much too coarse. After eight years
more a second crop arrives, but that
again Is of but poor quality, and
eight years more, making forty-six
years in all, must pass before the
grower can reap any material 'beneflt
from the tree. Then, again, the great
est care is necessary for the manufac
ture of the best champagne corks be
cause should they be defective iu Bize
and shape the quality of the wine will
suffer. For that reason they are not
made by machinery, like the ordinary
cork, but are cut by hand, as finer
work can be done that way. Philadel

Mazarin and His Pictures.
Perhaps no more ardent lover of pic
tures ever lived than Cardinal Mazarin,
minister of the regency during the mi
nority of Louis-XIV. Being told that
,he had but two months to live, he was
soon after seen In his nightcap anJ
crossing gown, tottering along the cil
lery, pointing to his pictures, exclaim
ing: "Must I quit all these? Look at
that Correggl; this -'Venus' of Titian;
that incomparable 'Delnge of Caracci!
Farewell, dear pictures, that I have
loved so dearly and that cost me so
