THE COMMON LOT.
Ah, yes, I know this life is but a breath!
I know the common end of all is death.
I've seen d ar friends so often pass away
That death seems no more strange than does
And yet I cmnot think, howe'er so hard I try.
That which we call the dead can e'er be I.
And yet I know full well the time must come
When I, like it, shall lie as still and dumb;
When thorn I love will look on me with dread,
And friend to friend will whisper. "lie is
Some few ill grieve, and then the eyes wilt
Then smile, then Unsh.althoueh the dead be I.
FOLLIES OF ADOLESCENCE.
Defining Hla Papa.
The power of invective in a 5-year-old boy
Is something remarkable tn its variety at
least. A Bazar correspondent had occasion
recently to discipline his son, who bad
reached that interesting age, in the pres
ence of some of the boy's little friends.
Whether he was more astounded than
amused at the uproarious comment of the
little culprit is an open question. At all
events he was interested to hear the small
youth shout in tones betokening a derisive
"Do you know what my papa lsr He's
nothin but a 1-year-old kid, that's what!"
The Bright Love Dream of Years of School
bo j IJfe Buddy Dispelled.
As a boy he Hind been madly in love with
a girl of 1 is acquaintance. He basked in
her rireseri'-e and was lonely in her absence.
He expended all his dimes and quarters in
buying her eandy and supplied her with
perfumed stationery that she might have
no excuse from writing him the passionate
adoration which maidens tt 13 usually en
tertain for lovers two years their senior.
Upon m e occasion Lis feelings so far
overcame him that he spent a $5 bill ia the
purchase t f a ring with a "brilliant" set in
a heart shped device for the dainty finger
of his sweetheart. He lelioved his ii-l'ec-tions
were returned. If he wanted further
proof, had he not her letters by tho score
signed, "Yours in love and soon forever?'
Had he not received from her at Christmas
one of the first hat liands ever worked by
maiden fingers for a devoted lover's head
piece? Was ho not the first to le invited
to all her i arties, and were not all his boy
friends jw lous of the attentions she con
stantly paid him?
He was compelled at the age of 15 to
leave Boston for a course in a southern col
lege, but he went with tho assurance th a
he loved ard was beloved, and the thought
made him proud nnd merry beyond his
years. It mattered not, he thought, that
his studies and the rules of the institution
prevented him from corresponding with the
object of his devotion. It mattered not
that her parents had removed west with
her a few i miiths after his departure, thus
preventing him from meeting her during
the snmni -r vacations. He was sure of
himself, ard he would stake his life on her

"I was in a fever of excitement when I
rang the donrbe 11," said he, to use his own
words in r lining the story, "and my tem
perature jumped 20 degrees higher still
when the srvauts told me that Miss
was in. I was ushered into the reception
room and told that she would be down di
rectly. My seusutions were indescribable.
I felt a tingling in every nerve and muscle.
I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror
and saw t bat my cheeks were as red as
those of a man who had run a mile in the

chirograph y, made me gasp. 'A military

"I would have left tho house at once
without waiting to see the object I had
journeyed over a thousand miles to meet,
but just a the resolution was forming in
my mind I heard a step outside, and in a
moment Miss , tall, lank and decidedly
unlovely (at least so she appeared to me
then), walked into the room and shook my
hand with a chillingly polite: 'How d'ye
do, Mr. ? I'm awfully glad to see you.'
"I waited in town long enough to Inquire
what military men were on visiting terms
at her houe, and then returned to Boston,

Incongruities In a Modern Story.
In a recent sketch a man in the gallery
saw the woman he loved in a box at the op
era wearing a cloak "white as snow" in one
paragraph and "fleecy, pink and pale blue"
in another on the same page. "From the
height of his intellectual pride he bent his
head and sent a winged caress fluttering
down upon that flowerlike face," then by a
nice derangement of metaphors, "the man's
soul swept across the sea of song with the
heart of a lion and the wings of an eagle!"
