Hi Rospoixs to a Spec oh of Eulogy at
William n. RIdelns tells In Mc
Clure's Magazine of a dinner of the
Papyrus club in Doston at which Ilen
ry M. Stanley, the explorer, was tno
guest of honor:
"Whether he (Stanley) sat or stood,
he fidgeted and answered in monosyl
lables not because be was unsociable
or uneppreciative, but because he this
man of iron, God's instrument, whose
word lu the field brooked no contradic
tion or evasion, he who defied obsta
cles and danger and pierced the heart
of darkness was bashful even in the
company of fellow craftsmen.
"Ills embarrassment grew when aft
er dinner the chairman eulogized him
to the audience. lie squirmed and
averted his face as cheer after cheer
confirmed the speaker's rhetorical ebul
lience of praise. 'Gentlemen. I Intro
duce to you Mr. Stanley, who,' etc.
The hero stood up slowly, painfully,
reluctantly, and, with a gesture of dop
recatiou. fumbled in first one and then
another of his pockets without finding
what he sc'urht.
"It was suppos-ed that he was look
ing for his notes, rr-d more applause
took the edge off the delay. His mouth
twitched without speech for another
awkward minute before, with a more
rect bearing, hp produced th object
of bis search and put it on .his head.
It was not paper, but a rag of a cap,
and with that on he faced the com
pany as "one who by the act bad done
all that could be expected of hlm'and
made further acknowledgment of the
honors he had received superfluous. It
was a cap that Livingstone had worn
and that IJvingstone had given him."

Rises In August and ibisappears Regu
larly In February.
One of Michigan's unsolved myste
ries is the island that every summer
comes to the surface of Lake Orion
ami every winter goes back agaiu to
the depths from whence it arose.
Its periods of appearance and dis
appearance are nearly regular. It
comes to the surface about the middle
of August nnd goes down again about
Feb. 13. What causes it to act thus
strangely i3 a conundrum that none
has been able to solve, but to keep it
above water or compel it to remain in
the depths have been alike without re
sults. On one occasion a number of farm
ers and teamsters resolved to put the
island out of moving business. In
their efforts to do so they hauled many
loads of stone and deposited them on
it during thft early part of wluter, be
lieving that when it went down in
February It would go down for goorl.
weighted as It was with the stones.
But the following August saw It bob
up serenely from below minus Its load
At another time an effort was mad
to keep it on the surface, nnd it was
chained to the surrounding country
with heavy log chains. When its
time for departure came it departed,
and the log chains departed with It
The log chains were never recovered.
The island is composed of soft mud
and rushes, and there are some skep
tical sotils who attribute Its formation
and appearance and disappearance to
the gathering of vegetation In one spot
by the currents of the lake and Its sub
sequent decay. Boston Herald.
