Chicago Post: Mr. Blaine continues
to live in spite of the conspiracy of doc
tors an J sensation mongers to "make him
lead." We cannot penetrate the mystery
f the sick chamber to determine how
actions the conflxt realiy is; whether Mr
Blaine's illness is mortal or whether it
fcaa been grossly exaggerated by the ro
mancers. All that is really certain is that
the ex-secretary has been grievously
stricken and that he is fighting disease
with the save daring and bravado that
he has displayed so often In his strngg'es
in active life. In any situation he is the
same James O. Blaine as of yore
wniqae, interesting, robed in mystery and
the enter of universal curiosity.

Able avenues and pall them down to build

Sir 'William Jenner, the qneen's favorite
physician, wears at his watch chain a
cnineA piece, which bears a pleasant little
history. One day he found among his

carpenter. On remarking to the man that
Iris disease had, through neglect of treat

Among the mauy names for cattle none
is commoner than those which come from
the roots mu and bu, "to bellow." Hence
we have the Akladian am. "bull;" the
Turkic en-ek, "cow;" the Egyptian am,
"cattle," and the Mongol buku, "bull;"
tout a more distinctive word is tor, which
fwiu to mean probably "horned," and
which appears not only as tannin, but as
the Semitic thor and the Mongol shor.
The hull, whether turned or wild, was no
doubt well known to early man. Tiie
aamci for goats are hjso suggestive of con
vection and iuclude the Aryan ais, the
Semitic az And probably the Akkadian tiz.
For sheep, perhaps the oldest word is the
Egyptian ba, bnt there is a word for lamb
which seems to, be widely distributed, as
he Semitic kar, the Greek kar and the
Finnic kari, probably from the root kar, to
"Inclose" or "guard," as meaning a herdel
Bock. From the samn root come words for
paature, no doubt allied. Scottish Kevlew.

With a fierceness they never have here.
Where N iture is clothed with perpetual snow.
And th sleighing is good all the year,
I traveled this season without any guide.
Which I fonnd was a bad thing to do.
For, walk Ing along where I dared not to ride.
Why, I stepped in a hole and fell through.
"Fell through Into what?" do I hear yon in

For roasted I'd been had there been any fire
Down a cl.imney it was that I fell.
And who owned the chimney yoa never could
Nor could fin J it, though far yon should
The place is a secret, but I will confess
I had dro ped into Santa Claus' home.
It's neediest to say that I made a great noise
When I tumbled down there in a heap;
I scattered h lot of old Santa Claus' toys
And awak ened him out of bis sleep.
Be raised up his head and be rubbed his round
Then he giized while I made a low 1hw,
And yon ooi Id not manifest greater surprise
Should he some down your chimney now.
"Now what does this mean? be exclaimed
with a frown.

His pardon I asked, though I said I fell down.
And was sure that he couldn't blame me.
He smiled, sbnok his head and proceeded to

When you'v gone through as many as IP
And then, as a mark of his hearty good win.

"My home," he continued, "is built in a hill.
And extends underground for a mile.

The Brat room we entered was Hllort with ten
score Of these fairies, all working on doll.;
There were dolls on the tables, and doll on the
And new dresses hung round on t he v.
The fairies were making them look very
The most costly could, some of thorn, talk.
And while I was lookingnne raised up its voice.
Saying. "Mamma, please take me to waik!"
The fairies nor Santa their am ilea could repress.
And ho said. "They are cute little elves;
I notice sometimes, when they make a nice
They will wear it awhile on themselves."
He nodded and bade them a pleasant good day.
Then we heard a low chattering noise.
As, leaving this room, we continued onr way
To discover some things for the boys.
Attention was drawn by a rattle and hum
To a room down the hall on onr right.
We peeped in and saw twenty gnomes round a
They were beating with all of their might;
And some of their brothers were busy wit h tops.
But their work with tholr sport they divide.
For when one is finished a gnome on it hops;
Others spin it and give btui a ride.

The next room we came to waa packed full ot
In the next they were making baseballs;
There were sheep, cows and horses, with move
And toy stables all fitted with stalls;
Balloons and expresses, and cars that will run.
Many puzzles and numberless games.
And things new and queer that would cause
But I promised I'd not tell their names.
Through room and through hallway thus on
ward we passed.
Seeing toys of all possible sorts
Some made and some making arriving at last
Where old Hants receives his reports.
His messengers go to all parts of the land
To learn what the children desire;
The list of the good ones he keeps safe at hand;
That of bad ones ha throws in the fire.
My host was as busy as busy could be.
For the season of presents was nigh;
Bo, thanking him much for his kindness to me,
I reluctantly bade him goodby.
