In the Haco to Stay.
A yearning for pnblic jffice is nothing
lew. Xor, unhappily, is it anything new
tor men to proclaim tha , yearning from
the housetop. The Rev H. V. Pierson,
many years ngo. found in he southwestern
part of the country a lan e class of peren
nial office seekers. Once he heard a speech
from a man who had l?en a candidate for
the same office for twelvi years in succes
sion. Every year he had canvasscil the
county, mating speeches in every neigh
borhood. Dr. Pierson prints a part of the
speech which he himself heard.
"I ask you to vote for me as an encour
agement to the poor Leys of the country,
that 1 may he an example to them; that
they may point to me and say, 'There is a
man who was once us poor as any of us,
Who has been honored w it h a seat in the
legislature of his native s.ate.'
"I have taught school a good many win
ters and the boys that I ha e taught like me.
Tliey will give me the r votes. I have
lometimes thought I should have to teach
school over the county ur til I have taught
boys enough to elect me.'
The end of the speech Was as follows:
"My feflOW citizens, v hen I look back
over the twelve years sim-e I became a can
didate for this office 1 feel encouraged.
When 1 look back and think of the very
few that for years gave me any encourage
ment and compare tliem vit tithe number
that now promise me their votes I am
proud of my success.
"I begin to feel that my hopes are
about to lie realized; that a majority of
my fellow citizens will honor me with
their suffrages, and that I shall proudly
go up to the capital n id take my seat
among the legislators of the state. Hut,
fellow citizens, if unfor unately I should
fail in this election, I take the present op
portunity to announce myself as a candi
date in the next race."
Not that year, but soil) i years afterward
his long dream was realized. Youth's
Smith and Other Names.
A whole essay might be written nay,
very many have been wr tten on the sub
ject of surnames derived from offices and
trades. They are a sp ntaneous growth
wherever surnames are known, especially
In those races where, as imong the Celts,
office and trade were hereditary. The com
monest surname of all is Smith, even in
Scotland, where a pure patronymic Mac
donald holds the second place, and an al
lusive name Brown th a third. The Celtic
word for Smith Gow- is common in the
Highlands, I.efevre has established itself
in England, and the Ital an equivalent be
came known to us through the excellence
of the blades made in t ie Sixteenth cen
tury by Andrea Ferara, r Maestro Andrea
dei Ferari. of Belluno.
Mackintosh bespeaks ofty descent mac
an toseaich, the thane'.' son; on the other
hand, in Stewart a lov ly office has been
raised to very high levels. It is, in fact,
the "stye ward," from the Anglo-Saxon
stige weard, the master, not of the house,
but of the hogs an in port ant official in
days when a lord's we ilth was reckoned
by his bestial, andgradi ally transferred to
the chief officer of the household the
steward, seneschallus, or dapifer. When
the origin of the name i remembered, how
trivial seem the squabbles whether it is
rightly spelled with B or W. V of course
is organic in the nam ; and was onlv al
tered to u to suit the French alphabet.

From the sublime to t he ridiculous:
"Plumpetty itty part idge, who does 'oo

inamorata in one of Marion Crawford's
"Zoo!" returns the Cm little woman, with
a smile which, in the author's graphic
words, "went all around her head like the
equator on a globe."
This sort of thing is Jill very well when
the bride is a rosy li tie dumpling of a
woman. The worst of it is that engaged
couples of every age nn 1 of the most unro
mantic nppearance ado it the same style.
"What shall 1 call you, my dearest

One may get some id a of what railroads
mean in the saving of time and money to
passengers by taking I he case of Ixindon.
It is est imated t hat about oOO.oliO persons,
or about one-tenth o the population of
the entire area of th - metropolis, travel
to and frm their business every day
all the year round. I we remember the
distances, it is not too much to assume that
the railroad will economize for each at
least two hours in the week, or say five
days per annum each. This, for over 500,
ooo people, means 2,500 OOodays, or an econ
omy of 8,aoiJ years o' 300 working days
Suppose theaverac- earnings of these
500,000 people to be IS 10 per annum each
not too high an average when we remem
ber the number of miilionaires included in
the total we shall see a total money sav
ing, in the sense of time being money, of
equal to 4,150,000 per umnm. And this in
