WHAT EROS TAUGHT.
Once came Venus to me, bring' ruf
Eros where my rat le fed.
Teach this littlo bo - your singing.
Gentle herdsman,' Venus said.
I was young; I did n t know
Who it was that V jnus led;
Thut was many year ago!
In a lusty voice but mellow.
Callow peda it, I b gan
To instruct tht, littl. fellow
In the mysteries k lown to man;
Sung the noble citht rn's prnise.
And the flute of d ar old 1'an,
And the lyre that H rmes plays.
Bet he paid ..o heed unto me;
Nay, that gracel.-n littlo boy
Coolly plotted to un lo me
With his songs of tender Joy;
And ray pedantry o erthrown,
Eitger was I to em ;loy
His sweet ritual for mine own.
Ah, theso yea.-s of c urs aro fleeting
Yet I hato not v duly wrought.
Since today I am repeating
What dear lessonr Eros taught;
Love and always lo e, and (hen.
Counting all things else for naught,
love and always lo e again!

The Tana-lb of Baal.
Thero rises a huge w ill 70 feet high, in
closing a square court f which the side is
710 feet long. Part of the wall having
fallen into ruins has bten rebuilt "rom the
ardent materials, tat the whole or the
north side, with it.-. ho.utiful pilasters, re
mains perfect. As tl e visitors enter the
coi-rt they stand still iu astonishment at
the extraordinary sight which meets their
eyes; for here, crowded within those four
high walls, is the native village of Tad
mor. It was natural enough for the Arabs
to btlfld their mini D.W s ft i thin these ready
matle fortifications, mt the impression
produced by such a vi lago in such a place
is indescribably st rati e.
The temple, so to sreak, is eaten out at
the core, and little but the shell remains.
But here and there a fluted Corinthian
column or group of t olumns, with entab
lature still perfect, ri es in stately grace
far over the veretel ed huts, the rich,
creamy color of the limestone and the
beautiful moldings of he capitals contrast
ing with the clear blu of the cloudless sky.
The best view of th 3 whole is to be ob
tained from the roof of the naos, which,
once beautiful and ad. rned with sculpture,
is now all battered and defaced and has
been metamorphosed into a squalid little
To describe the viev f: m that roof were
indeed a hopeless ti sk. High into the
clear, blue air and th golden sunshine rise
the stately columns; 1 rowded and jumbled
and heaped together elow, untouched by
the gladdening sunbeams, unfreshened by
the pure, free air, lies all the squalor and
wretchedness of an Arab mud hut village.

Olive Growing in California,
Olive growing is no vail the rage iu Cali
fornia, and warnings are thrown out that
the business is like'y to be overdone. In
the neighborhood of Pomona, for instance,
more than "00,000 tn es have already been
planted. It must be admitted that the
Californians are prne to excess in the
matter of fruit culture. During the last
thirty-five years ther : has been at different
times a craze to cult i vate the grape, apri
cot, Bartlett pear am other popular fruits,
as if it overshadow) d everything else in
Importance. The hist fashionable horti
cultural fad is the olive. A writer on the
enbject points out tl at Pomona being the
headquarters for the sale of olive cuttings,
the conclusion that e sewhere in California
the olive is as largeh cultivated is unwar
ranted. He thinks that tht distribution of cut
tings may goon for years without danger
of overstocking the market. Pure olive
oil, he says, is hard 1 0 find iu the United
States, and in supph ing it will consist the
large profits of the growers. Chicago
Qualities of tho Topaz.
The name of the p -ecious stone inserted
in the ring of Gyges has not been handed
down to us, but it is probable t hat it was
the topaz, whose wi nders Philostrates re
counts in the life of Apollonius. An attri
bute of the sun an 1 of fire, the ancients
called it the gold magnet, as it wascredited
with the power of t ttracting that metal,
indicating its veins and discovering treas
ures. Heliodorus, in his story of Theag
enes and Caricles, says that the topaz
saves from lire all t .iose who wear it, and
that Charit ies was preserved by a topaz
from the fiery vengeance of Arsaces, queen
This stone was ou: of the first talismans
that Theagenes pos; essed in Egypt. The
topaz at present symbolizes Christian vir
tues faith, justice temperance, gentle
ness, clemency. Paris Figaro.
