Those who are walking: to the
world's fair for fun and those who are
walking back from necessity will
have an opportunity to exchange
congratulations at the cross roads.
A Pittsbi'hg wheelman has cov

four hours over common country
roads. Under such circumstances it
would not be too bold to pronounce
it the greatest bicycle foat yet recorded.
When Ward McAllister talks about
the danger and vulgarity in lavish
extravagance he talks more sensibly
than is his wont and is exerting an

Tiit.ke is considerable discussion
going on just now in regard to the
ten greatest novels. As no two men
have the same opinion in regard jo
the greatness ol a novel it looks as
if this momentous question would
never be settled.
A Wii.kesb.vrke youth attempted
suicide two months ago because he
could not marry the girt of his
choice. He made another attempt
on his life the other day lecause the
stern parents relented and allowed
him to marry his alter ego.

A cnii'PER veteran of eighty year9

William IIose.v Balloc wants
murderers chloroformed before they
re placed iu the electric death chair.
If the murderer is rnloroformcd suf
ficiently, why put him in the death

chloroform more desirable in every
way than electrocution?
The German arti-t who slashed

"Why should I hug other women
when I have a wife at home who in

a man in a New York police court
yesterday, when he was accused of
"hugging women on the street, but

The suicide who put an end to his

peculiar method, either of suicide or
murder, is sure to be imitated.

For He told me not to weep.
More dear to 1dm thegrave

For though I go to him,
He.c oes not come to me.

But be w my head and say,
"Keop him, for he is thine.
But krep not, grave, my youth,

My sn lie and my light step
Oh, tflve them back to me."
But tie grave answered, "No.
For hese things still are dear,
Since lie, deprived of them,
Wot id be too lonely here."
Then to the dend I pray,
"Restore my youth to me.
That vhen we meet again
I be not old to thee!"
But hi nor henrs nor sees
For iiis eyes like mine are dim.
So to l is grave I come
To g t them back from him.
For only in the grave

And the living happy niado

Mistakes of Missionaries.

I whisper int j-onr ear a few of the mis

much abont the mistakes of the heathen.
One evening an English missionary in
Peking took a friend who was visiting
him to a regular Chinese theater. It
happened that the play for that evening
was a bnrlesque on foreign preaching.
A Chinaman dressed tip o represent a
foreigner came upon the stage with his
arms full of books, attended by his Chi
neso servant. He began to preach a mock
sermon, mak ng the mistakes in talking
which a foreigner is likely to make.
These mistakes were received with bursts
of laughter from the audience, to whom
the books were distributed. The fun
came to a limax when the preacher,
after delivering a sentence particularly
full of langhi.ble mistakes, turned to his
servant and said: "How did I speak?
Did I do pn tty well?" and the servant
replied with Kreat gravity: "The foreign
teacher speal s the Chinese language ex
ceedingly we.l. No mistakes at all were
made." New York Independent.
An Invention For Steamships.
An English mechanical genius has de
vised a method of indicating and stop
ping a leak b v the r.se of compressed air.
He divides a ship into airtight compart
ments, fitted with doors provided with
packing mat rial and connected by tulies
with a room on deck called the "switch
room." In this room is a junction chest
supplied witl eomprf-wed air from fixed
or portable compressors ami so arranged
that the air can bo delivered to tiny of
the compartments. Other tubes lead
from the compart men t from which wa
ter an be foi eed out when rtHjuired, and
; electric indii ators are also connected
with the switch room to indicate the ac
cumulation .f water in any of the com
partments. Should the vessel "spring a
leak" the indicator will show which com
partment is affected, so that the com
pressed air may lie forced in to drive the
water out. lloston Journal.
True Love Side Tracked by an Orange.
A young la Jy said the other day that
she hated oranges liecar.se one had come
between her and her lover. He had
called on her one evening, and after sit

bright Florida oranges out of his poket
and suggested that each eat one. She

A streak of lightning from an almost

ship Oxford off Cape Hatteras, while

years before I went to Drs. Stackhouse

past two years my case was so bad
that I could hardly believe a cure
possiole. Headaches, dizziness, de
spondency, insomnia, throat troubles,
coughing and numerous other symp

nearly all the time. I'nder the
treatment of Drs. Stackhouse and
Daniel, these have all disappeared.
From the very first the treatment
did me good. Why, I now feel like
another man. I want to recommend
