la a rather loiv and crowiioil basement ot
ore of the city's shops recently a customer
f tool waiting for a parcel near an elevated
!e?lc, where a yonrif; woman was acting as
'.asuier of the department. Directly over
the j?irl hung a strona; electric light. A
man, evident !y nn at '.nc::c t' the establish
ment who looked after the lights, cam1
alontc, extinv;iiishetl the liht, and pro
ceeded to lower and clean it. The girl
drew a breath of relief.
"I wish yon wouldn't put the thing
back," she said.
"Why," said the man, "is your head bad
"It's always bad," complii:ied the girl,
"while that whirring rlare is in my face."
The mn laughed sympathetically.
"Sorry, but I can't help it," he said; and a
moment later the dazzlinji glole swung in
position again and he went on to finish his
IJut it cliancffd that the woman who
heard this was a benevolent and energetic
one, and she was liesides a rich and lonjr
fctandlng patron of the store. She asked
the girl at the desk a few questions to dis
cover that the "bad head " described an al
most permanent condition of dizziness and
fullness, which, rightly or wrongly, she
attributed to the electric light. The cus
tomer listened and sympathized and went
straight from the basement to the mana
ger's office, where her statement of the
case and plea for a change in the situation
of electric Iiht or desk received probably
more attention than it would have done
from a less prominent woman. At all
events, within a few days the cashier's
desk in that basement was moved, and a
small gas jet, shaded, supplied the extra
light needed. It would be well, however,
if there were more rich customers to come
to the rescue of dazzled clerks, or more
managers to investigate U such rescue is
iieeded. Her Point of View in Xew York
A Great Natural Sounding. Ttoard.
"The queerest country I ever saw," said
Simon Askins, for tweuty-ei;,'ht years a
soldier on the American frontier, "is that
immediately about Dry lake, in Lassen
county. I was a sergeant there under
(lenr ral AYhcaton during the Modoc wr.
Dry lake usually has no water in it at all.
It i almost an arid plain, with some al
kali scattered here and there over it, and
its area is about Jji by 4 miles. On one
side are the Pit River mountains and on
another are big pine woods, while to the
west are the famous Java beds in which
the Indians hid during that last great Cal
ifornia struggle with the savages.
"Well, a winding road leads up from the
valley into the curious basin. If a horse
walk on this road anywhere, even two or
three miles outside the border of the dry
lake, he can be heard for many and many
miles up in the interior. The ground all
about there sends forth a hollow sound.
Reverberations can be heard everywhere.
Whether there are any caves or lost
rivers there I cannot say, but though I
have been almost everywhere on the fron
tier I never found anything like it. A foot
fall may be heard like a sonnd in a great
"Many a night when, as a soldier on
duty, we anticipated an attack from the
Indians or the arrival of couriers or sup
plies, I have put my ear to the ground. If
a horse was moving about anywhere with
in miles he could at once easily be detect
ed. This enabled us to put ourselves in an
attitude of defence. It is a great gallery,
a whispering gallery it may be called,
where the acoustics are so perfect that any
thing said is published to the world. Ail
the country sibout there has ears. Even
the caw of a crow or the notes of a song
ster take on a weird sound." San Fran
Men have a poor eye for the truest heroes
round about them in their own day. Their
hero worship is concerned chiefly with the
past. Emerson said of Webster at the
time of the fugitive slave law, when Gar
rison and Phillipsand Parker and Whittier
were waging their great light, "He knows
the heroes of ITTti, but cannot see those of
1.S51 when he meets them in the street."
Iluwrvir severe t his view.of Webster may
1m-, the word is true of a thousand thou
sand men. It is as common today as it
was in Christ's time and before Christ's
time, for men who busy themselves in
painting the tombs of the prophets to bo
just as busy in stoning the prophets sent
unto their own generation.
Carlyle himself, the greatest of all our
hero worshipers, whose name rushes to
our lips at the very mention of heroes and
heroism, had but a poor eye and ear for
the heroic figures and voices of his own
epoch. He never caught Mazzini's vision.
He hardly understood what Mazzini was
nlfout in the world, even when he had him
for his neighbor and went in and out with
him flay by day. There had been no con
siderable exhibition of heroism in England,
according to his vision, for two centuries
no real body of heroes since the Puritans.
It may well be doubted whether, had he
been the contemporary of Cromwell or of
Luther, whom he celebrated so well, he
Would not have been found their enemy

Malice of Old Sarah Churchill.
An electioneering squib written in the
reign of William III describes the scene
of the hustlings in Guildhall, when the
platform was crowded by "all the folks in
furs, from sables, ermines and the skins of
curs." Swift has mentioned a "Ballad
Full of Puns," which was produced dur
ing the Westminster election of 1710. Cut
we have more precise records of the deeply
designed stroke of electioneering policy
nscribed to old Sarah, duchess of Marl
borough, who, wishing to anuoy George
Grimstone, who was opposing the success
of her nominees, had a fresh edition printed
of a very stupid comedy called "Love in a
Hollow Tret?," which had been written by
Ixrd Grimstone, and which, being heartily
ushamed of it, he had suppressed. The
implacable Sarah reprinted the silly play,
and affixed to it an engraving representing
an elephant dancing on a tightrope. Lon

Whatever else may be said about Lord
Wolseley, this at least is certain when he
speaks as he did in Dublin of the road to
success in the army being paved with
hard work, he is the hero of his own epic.
It is perhaps the knowledge of his own
career that has caused him to think the
road to . the woolsack is similarly con
structed. Well, that of course is compli
mentary to the bar and the bench, but
illustration is sometimes perilous when it
deals with men and their lives.
For instance, Lord Wolseley took the
case of the lord chancellor of Ireland, who
really gained the woolsack through the'
houses of parliament and not through the
four courts. In twenty-five years Mr.
Gibson, now Lord-. Ashbourne, held but
three briefs in the court over which he
now presides. London Broad Arrow.

of cures by Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure,
