I'm l, ati t i o heat of life's battles
las blvaclelo my brown hair till it's whitt
And teardrops that sparkle light diamonds
Have stolo from my eyes their old light.
And low, whoro cold marbles aro gleaming,
I laid what the world gave to ine;
But high, whero tho pure ones are waiting,
My treasures again will I see.
Tonight I have heard strains of musio
That floated away long ago,
But soino mystic spirit has caught them
To chant to me now, soft and low.
I heard an old story tonight, too,
That memory lingered to toll,
Of youth that built eastles in midair
That crushed hopes and dreams as they toL
I've seen an old picturo of sorrow
A vessol that stik in tho sea
But safe in the har.bor of heaven
A fair sailor boy waits for me.
I listen in dreams for his footsteps,
I ahnost can see his whito hand
As it lifts from my heart lifo's dark shadows
And pointa me to his spirit land.
o Time, I am weary of traveli
Uife's pathway is lonely for me,
And breezes that whipi;or about mo
Seem filled with a voico from the sea.
And now I am tired-so tired
And some night 1-11 Ieo down to rest
And droam till I wako in the morning
in jeaue in the homes of the blest.
-Floronco Bailey Farnsworth.
The Screaming Habit.
No two persons hear exactly alike.
Tho human internal ear is best de
scribed by likening it to a grand piano.
That instrument has a key for every
note; the human car has a nervo fila
mont for every tono and its variations.
Did I say for every tone? That is a
mistako. Seone pianos havo sovon oc
taves, somo have eight; oino have bot
ter tono in one portion of the keyboard
than in another. Exactly so with the
humen oar. Somo persomis hear acute
ly; they catch sounds that to others are
but silence. Somo tones strike tho ear
drun, but are not conveyed to the
brain becauso their corresponding
nerve filament is missing. We know
of defective hoaring, but wo do not ap
ply our knowledge to our reasoning
when we are stating our opinions or im
presslons. To some a high note is a
positive pain, and to such cars a soar
ing soprano will do nothing but shriek.
Others will detest tho lower tones. An
hnals are moved out of their wonted
calam by the sotiid of certaint notes.
It should bo our ondeavor to cultivate
tones of softness and sveetness. A low
toine is the voico of comfort and conso
lation, of deepest, iost sacred enotion.

Two Ugly Men.
Tho Due do Roquelatire wns a man
of groat ugliness and mcli hnmmor. One
day hoi met ;n the street a most unlllove
ly looking Aaxverganat, who had some
petition or ineiorial to present at Ver
sailles. Ho iminediatoly introduced
hini to Louis XIV, remarking that he
was under a special obligation to him.
The king gra:ied tho favor asked for
and then inquired of tho duc wliat
might be the naturo of tho obligation.
''But for him, your majesty, I should
be the ugliest man in your dominionsl"
I nan reminded of Hleidegger, the
manager of tho opera liouro in the
Haymarket when Georgo 1[ was king.
One day ho laid a wager with the Earl
of Chesterfield that lie would not find
in all London an uglier face than his.
After a long search the earl produced
a woman of St. Giles' who at first
seomed to outvio the manager, but when
the latter put on the wotain' headgear
his superior ugliness was at once ad
mtitted.-All the Year Round.
