Cleopatra's Musical Voice.
Cleopatra always selected the same lover,
the head of the invading army, and always
used him to help her in founding, as she
hoped, the empire of the east. Her attrac
tive power was probably not her beauty.
Her coins do not reveal a beautiful woman,
but a broad browed, thoughtful queen,
and Plutarch, in describing her, evidently
speaks on the authority of men whoso
fathers had studied her face. He says:
Her actual beauty, it is said, was not in
itself so remarkable that none could be
compared with her, or that no one could
see her without being struck by it, but the
contact of her presence, if you lived with
her, was irresistible; the attraction of her
person, joining with the charm of her con
versation, and the character that attended
all she said or did, was something be
witching. It was a pleasure merely to
hear the sound of her voice, with which,
like an instrument of many strings, she
could pass from one language to another;
so that there were few of the barbarian
nations that she answered by an interpret
er; to most of them she spoke herself, as
to the Ethiopians, Troglodytes, Hebrews,
Arabians, Syrians, Medes, Parthiaus and
many others, whose language she had
learned. Loudon Spectator.

When the Marquis of Aylesford died in
Colorado the only friend in this country
who could be found to take the body back
to England was his first cousin, who :it
the time was driving a hack aroun ! S::a
Antonio. One hears stories of this sort on
every side, and one meets faro denlers,
cooks and cowljoys who have served
through campaigns in India or Kg pt, rr
who hold an Oxford degree. A pr. ate ia
G troop, Third cavalry, who wj;s t-jy esc .-rt
on several scouting expeditions in the
Garza outfit, was kind enough and quite
able to tell me which club in London had
the oldest wine cellar, where one could get
the best visiting cards engraved and why
the professor of ancient languages at Ox
ford was the superior of the instructor in
like studies at Cambridge. He did this
quite unaffectedly, and in do way attempt
ed to excuse his present position, nor was
he questioned concerning his position in
the past. Richard H. Davis in Harper's
