THE BOCK I8LAXD JJlRGUS. FBI DAY; MARCH
OUT IN THE COLD.
Turned out in the aomoer twilight, ,
Out Into the bitter cold,
And the pitiless sleet aa it sweeps the street
Is piercing ber garments old.
And the babe on ber breat Is ciying.
And ber little ones, clust'riiie; 'round
In Tsjnie affright at the fulling night,
Are clutching ber tattered gown.
For the rent was not forthcoming,
And bow could the landlord wait;
And what did he know of ber want an 4 woe
As early she toiled and late?
H couldn't be losing his money
It's only the way of the world 1
And why should be care if she crouches there
'Mid the storm king's wrath unfurled r
She has sewed in the dawning sunrise.
She has stitched in the jtnth'ring gloom.
And her eyes have grown dim and her Augers
As she worked In her dreary room.
But the pay was very uienper.
And the mouths were many to fill.
And the fatherly heart lay far apart
In the grave yard on the hilL
So she stands In the decp'ning darkness,
And ber tired and aching head
Is throbbing with pain and the sad refrain
Of ber children's cry for bread.
And she seas the laughing maiden
Ride pant in their room of fur.
And the city Is bright with its mansions to-night,
But there's never home for her.

Justice Cray's Toast.
A few days ago, while crowds of hungry
people were streaming Into the restaurant of
ijeTJnited States senate, soon after uoon, a
number of patrons of the place were aston
ished to hear a waiter calling out iu an Im
perative tone of voice: "Bread for Justice
Gray's toast !" The order was odd enough to
Justify passing curiosity. A moment after
it bad been shouted over the counter by the
waiter, Mr. Pago, the manager of the place,
rushed behind the lunch laden shelf, stooped
to find a pantry, and then bent over a task
that could not be delegated to an appren
tice. From a very nice loaf of bread
he cut four or flvo slices, each as
thin as a very thin wafer. These were laid
carefully upon a plattr and nhot down th.
dumb waiter to the cook shop below, while
Mr. Page explained to a curious patron that
Justice Gray would not have his toast any
thicker than be had cut it, and that he was
so critical that he could toll at once if any
body except the proprietor had cut It The
big justice he is the lnrgwet man of the
whole bench does not Iuml-Ii ou toast
alone. lie Is a very good feeder, but be is
quite aa fastidious about everything else. that

Ao Early Architect of High Towers.
The construction of the tower oOO mntera
high for the Paris exposition of 1SS0 has again
brought to light the project of the English
man, Trevithick. It appears that In ISoo he
submitted to the king of England plans for
the erection of a monument 1.000 feet hi?h
(305 meters), destined to recall to the
minds of bis fellow citizens the vote on
the reform bilL Nothicz came of the idea
however, and its promotor died shortly
sxter having presented the plans. Trevi
tbick was the inventor of a number of re
markable and useful Inventions, among
others the piston pump, steam dredge, ma
chine for producing low temperature by the
expansion of compressed air, etc. He occu
pied himself also with a screw propeller, and
In 1804 constructed a ten ton locomotive, and
to 1808 opo rated in public on a circular rail
way in England the locomotive, "Catch Me
"Who Can," at a peed of twelve miles an hour.
The labors of Trevitbick stem to have been
singularly unappreciated, and he died poor
and unknown. The Buildur.
Composition of Qnirksaud.
Quicksand is found in nearly all porta of
the country, but in very great quantity along
the Platte river in Nobrasia. It is composed
principally of mica, or small particles of
rock disintegrated from large bodies of rock
and subjected to a continuous washing pro
cess. The water removes all the raggedness
or angular shape from the particles. The
fragments become smooth and slimy and
slip upon each other with the greatest facil
ity, so that any heavy weight resting upon
this sand causes tho particles to be displaced.
They separate from the ceiiter, allowing the
weight to sink until a solid bain is reached.
When particles of sand are ragged and an
gular any weight pressing on them will
crowd them together until they are com
pacted into a solid mass. A sand composed
of mica or soapstoao mixed with water seemf

Just after the war, and when the poet
Whittier lived nt Amesbury, Mass., he re
ceived a heavy and queer looking box from
Lookout Mountain. His uieco, a timid young
woman, feared that tho strange arrival might
be an infernal machine from the rebels, and
persuaded her uncle to have it buried in the
garden, where it remained till the mail
brought a letter saying that the box contained
an Inkstand quaintly modeled from northern

Measurements of Women.
Certain art and society papem are raising a
bobbery over the measurements of the divine
form of lovely woman and discover that her
waist is two or throe inches greater In- girth
after the dress is removed. Of course it is,
and the reason is not difficult to ascertain.
Ia order to properly hug his best girl the
man's arm must be firmly clasped around tho
waist, and naturally tho waist haa to be re
duced to a size, that will insure the firmness
of the aforesaid clasp. Art is all well enough
in Its place, but when it comes to good square
hugging and biasing art has got to take a
back teat and keep quiet. New York Mercury-.

What Is Said of Them by Uie Commis
sioners of Masaachtuetts.
The commissioners of savings bonks make
the following remarks concerning co-operative
banks: "The favor with which these in
stitutions are received by the people of this
commonwealth, and the growing confidence
in them, are evidenced by the fact that dur
ing the post year 15 new banks have gone
into operation, being the largest number es
tablished in any one year since the law regu
lating such banks was adopted in 1GT7. The
number in operation on Oct. 81 last was 66,
with assets of $5,503,072.19, a gain of $1,293,
123.33 during the year ending that date.
During the 'year some of the oldest banks
have had the first issue of shares mature, and,
as Illustrative of the actual working of the
system, the following stateniunt by one of the
bonks is interesting: The bank made its first
issue of shares l-i September, 1S77, the number
being SS3, of which 301 had been withdrawn
or forfeited before October, ISSS, leaving 82
in force at that date; of this number hVj were
pledged as security for loans, and 4? were
free. On the S3 shares, monthly payments of
1 each bad been made for 134 months, mak
ing the cost at maturity of each share $131;
the value of the shares at maturity was
31)0.30, showing a profit on each, $66.82 for a
period of 11 years and 2 months. The iu
?rease in tho u umber of banks, and the con
tinued issuo of shares by all have so increased
the amount of money for ale as to make
probablo a reduction in the premiums bid (as
has already been tho case in some instances),
which will reduce the profits.
"Within the yoar the question has arisen
is to whether co-operative banks can loan on
real estate situated outside this common
wealth. One bank located in a town bounded
by tho state line has made loans in tho ad
joining town, situated within the state of
liew Hampshire. This toard hus taken the
ground that the law was intended to permit
cooperation between lenders and borrowers
within a limited territory, to enable the
building of homes within' the immediate
vicinity, and not for tho development of en
terprises promising large returns to tho share
holders; and, in the absence of a fixed limit,
havo takcu the limit named in thaJaw re
garding savings banks, and ruled that loans
can bo tnado only on real estate within this
"A custom exists in those banks of ailow
ing a borrower who has bid a high premium
on his louu to subsequently, when tho oppor
tunity offers, 'bid off tho amount at a lower
rato, and use tho la.t sum to pay tho sum
first bought, tho effect being that ho simply
has to pay a lessor premium thereafter, the
security remaining tho samo. Different
banks treat mucu a transaction in different
ways, some requiring now mortgage deeds
to be drawn end now notes given, and fre
quently tho borrowers are caroless about tho
matter, aud the note first given is left in the
bank, so that often, in nn examination of the
securities , two notes and sets of papers of the
samo amount are found, which, in the hands
of a dishonest person, might be availed of to
cover any deficit in his assou
''In view of the methods of doing business
peculiar to themselves, and the somewhat
complicated form of book keeping in general
use in these banks, a frequent aud thorough
auditing of tho accounts should be made by
a committee of the shareholders. Few of the
banks, howrvor, number among their mom
bers men who have both the time and ability
to do such work, and state supervision, to be
effectivo lu protecting the general public,
should be far more thorough than this board,
with Its present force and extended duties,
can possibly moke it. The range of invest
ments by these institutions is so limits that
tho same exercise of judgment regarding
loans, market value of securities, etc., is not
required as iu the case of savings banks, and
the examinations are almost entirely of a cleri
cal nature. An accountant, expert in the
forms in use by most of the banks, and corns
potent to introduce new forms when required,
should moke examinations of these bonks,
auditing all the transactions. Such a course,
if adopted, would give the board more time
for other aud more important duties, while
possibly some of the expense could be assessed
upon the bonks.'' Boston Herald.

Barrett's Chance Acquaintance.
,. I bade chat with Mr. Llswrenc Barrett
recently about the interesting incidents in his
travels about 1 3e country. One of the most
; momorable he told me happened some years
' ago on board a train when be was on bis way
; to Richmond, Va.
I While be was yet some hours distant from
: Richmond two gentlemen entered the car
and occupied ' he seat immediately behind
! him. One of t lem was of striking appear-
! an co, who was addressed by several persons
in the car as "C -snerai.''
"For more than an hour," said Mr. Bar
rett, "I listened to that man's conversation,
addressed to hi friend. He talked rapidly
and poured out information on all sorts of
topics in a aanner that was completely
amazing. Presently his companion left and
he lapsed into silence.
"As we sped idong I cudgeled my brain for
some means to draw bim Into conversation.
V'e were rushltg across one of those barren
stretches occasionally seen In tho south, and I
turned and asked him if there was much of
such desolate Imd in that section. He an
swered my question, and gradually the con
versation grew livelier. 1 never passed such
a day in my lie. The information of the
man was simply stupendous, and it was
poured out like tne mighty torrent, while I
listened, fascinated and amazed.
"Wheu we ntared Richmond he told me
thut ho would g that night to the theatre to
see Mr Barrett in 'Richelieu.' Henlsoadded

5!r. Bloixl, o' Dthlobem, Pa., told of a
tragedy in real life which occurred recently
in a Moravian settlement npar the town
named. One of the many cui'ious customs
of that strange ect is to marry off the young
people by lot. Of course it is not to be ex
pected that a young couple shutfied together
in this UK-chaui ai way will always feel tha
Romeo-Juliet decree of passion. In order to
bo generous, therefore, the Moravian intel
lectual aucestors made it a rule that both
tho young woman and tho young man should
have the riht to refuse, once, the helpmeet
drawn in the lor cry of lovo. In the present
case a young girl was first allotted to a mid
dle aged suitor who bad been waiting for
years to see his naitif drawn from the wheel.
She could not rwonoilo herself to his phys
ical deficiencies and exercised hor right to
withdraw. The rejected suitor sought re
vengo by refus ug another young woman
who hail been aligned to him, and in the
uieanlituo tho beminwof this story had her
self been refills! The two names were
thereupon' thrown back into the wheel, and
after several nioi.ths some strange freak of
fate brought tie two nanu out together
agnin. Neither c 3uld refuse to wol,this time,
and the unfortunate girl, rather than be tied
for liTe with unwelcome bonds, jumped into
the Bethlehem mil pond and drowned her
self. The mourning bridegroom, says Mr.
