If any woman of as all.
If any woman of the street
Before the Lord should pause and fall.
And with her long hair wipe his feet
He whom with yearning hearts we love.
And fain would see with human cyea
Around our living pathway move.
And underneath our daily skies
The Maker of the heavens and earth.
The Lord of life, the Lord of death.
With whom the universe had birth.
But breathing of our breath, one breath
If any woman of the street
Should kneel, and with the lifted mesh
Of her lone; tresses wipe his feet.
And with her kisses kiss their flesh
How 'round tliat woman would we throng.
How willinsly would clasp her hands.
Freah from that touch divine, and long
To cather up the twice blest strandsl
How eaperly with her would change
Our idle innocence, nor heed
Her shameful memories and stranpe.
Could we but also cluim that deed!

Cemeteries and Monuments for Horses.
"Rattle his bones over the st ones" doesn't
apply to the honored and petted trotters,
pacers and runners of the American race
course of today. A horse that has made
"good time" is in no danger of lting
dumped into n ditch and a few shovelfuls
of dirt thrown over his remains, lie is
even more reasonably sure of Cniliug an
honored resting place than some of the rep
resentatives of the human species. When
old Hambletoiiian cii.-d the remains were
put in a cofliu constructed by n regular un
dertaker, and the "funernl" was attended
by hundreds of people. If I am not mis
taken there was a bronze monument and a
life size cast of the celebrated old horse
erected over the grave.
When Ten Ilroeck died old John Ilarper
paid the noble animal a similar tribute.
The grave was dug on a knoll, where it
could be easily seen from the family resi
dence, and a $5,000 monument of polished
granite was placed above the great racer's
bones. The monument bears an inscrip
tion, which gives the name, age, date of
death, pedigree, etc., the whole surmount
ed by a miniature of the horse carved from
marble. New York has a regular ceme
tery for blue blooded horses. St. Louis
Looking for an Old Road.
The old national road, as it was called,
leading from the eastern seaboard to the
west and south, and constituting the main
public thoroughfare in the prerailroad
epoch, takes part of its way through the
hill country of eastern Kentucky, and
along its devious and devilish route I was
jolting and bumping one day in a buck
board when I met a "red brush."
"How are you?" I said to him.
"Howd'y'?" he responded.
"Got any worse roads than this around
"This un when you git about two miles
furder down the crick."
"I thought the old national road ran
through this way?"
"Where is it?"
"Well, this used to be it," he said, drawl
ing out the words, "but it disappeared dur
tn the war an hain't got back yit."
I hadn't the slightest doubt of the accu

The Frenchman's I.ovo for the Dramatic
Here is an instance which illustrates the
Frenchman's love of wh.it is dramatic. A
French si;i.iicr s.-tt on a summit of a hill
overlooking a garrison town; his horse was
picketed close by; the tn;iu was smoking
leisurely, and from t imc to time he glanced
from the espl.-inde to a Ui,; o&irial envelope
he held in his hand. A comrade assed by
and asked: "What are you doing here?" 1
am liearing the president's pardon for our
friend Fliehmaun. who is to lie shot this
morning,", replied the smoker, calmly,
without changing his conifortablenttitude.
"Well, then, you should hurry along with
your pardon," admonished his comrade.
"Ah. no!'' exclaimed the other, in some in
dignation; "see, there is hardly a soul yet
on the esplanade, and the firing platoon has
not oven been formed. You surely would
not have me rob my appearance of all dra
