IT NEVER PAYS,
It never pays to fret or growl
When fortune seens our foo;
The better bred will puth ahead
And sirike the braver blow
For luck Is work,
And those who shirk
Sitould not lament their doom;
But ifld the p'ay,
And oiaar the way,
That better men have roiom.
it never pays to foster pride,
And squander wealth In show;
For friends thus won are sure to run
In times of want or woe.
The noble worth
of all the earth
Are gems of heart and brain
A conscience clear,
A houselioad dear,
And hands without a stain.
It never pays to hate a foe
Or cater to a friend,
'To Iawn and whine, much less repine,
'To borrow or to lend.
'I he faults of men
Are fewer when
Kauh rows his own canoe,
For friends and debts
And pampered pets .
Unbounded mischief brow.
It never pays to wreck the health
In drudging after gain,
And he Is sold who thinks that gold
Is cheaply bought with pain.
A humble lot,
A cosy cot,
Have tempted even kings,
For station high
That wealth will buy,
Naught of contentment brings.
t never pays t A blunt re rrain,
Well wort hy ot a song;
For age and youth imust learn this truth
That nothing pays that's wrong.
The good and pure
Alone are sure
'To bring prolonged success I
Witlir what Is right
In heaven's sight
Is alwaya hure to bless.
THE ROYAL RUTDENT.
In the past century the University of
Heidelburg differed but little from that;
of the present, tay, save in point of inim
bers ; the same mixture of ranks and
claisses and the same swaggering, half
military looking personages, pipe in
mouth, wero then, as now, to be seen at
all times parading the principal streets.
The student at a German university
is a strange being, an odd compound of
duelling, smuoking, billard-playing, love
making, and study; bat still there are
some whose object is study alone, who
lead a quiet, regular life, and pass
through their terms unoticed, save by
their inmedinte class-fell ws ; and just
such an one was Karl Leibetz.
He lodged at the house of a widow
lady, who had hitherto declined receiv
ing any of the students, her reasons
being two-fold ; fir.t, she had where
withal to make her yearly expenses meet
without much straining-and secondly,
her caro and solicitudo for the welfare
of the pretty Adeline,, her only daugh
tor, clearly pointed out to her that a
gay and rattling student would ill accord
with her arrangements.
Her kerupka were, however, removed
by a note from Mr. Ransthaus, the prin
oi)al banker, requesting to know whoth
or she would have any objection toreceive
ad inmate a young man whose con
netions were nf thn N'iheet rePspcta
bility, and for whom he would enter
into any guarantee she might desire.
The reconamendation of the worthy
banker was not to ho refused, and a
reply in the aflirntative, stating how
happy Madam.o Ilartmau would feel in
receiving any friend of Mr. Reisthaus,
was immehttely sent, and in clue course
Mfr. Karl Laeibet z arrived.
In a short time Madame Hartman
began to find that Mr. Karl was a re
tmarkably p!easant young man; he was
no quiet, that she coukt searcely believe
she had received any addition in her
household ; there was no smokhng from
morn till night, no bottles of beer streow
ed about the rooms in all directions, and
no carousing all night with his fellow
st~udents ; in fact, she hog~an to consider
him more as a friendly guest than a
On his first arrival, LI: e prett~y Adeline,
wvhose exptetationsi and curiosity had
been excited in the highest dlegree, had
oxpressedl herself rather disappointed;
there was a chilling hau tour about him
wvhieli she could not at all understand;
bunt in a short time this wore away, and
Adeline, began pasrtly to coneide with
her mother's opinion, in thinking him
very agreeable, and partly to go rather
further thanu Madame Hartman had done,
linding him a very handsome yotung
I bievo it to be a general rule with all
narrators of "iHistoriottes," never to
allow a young couple to become domic
iled tunder the same roof wvithout ongen
dtering the tender passion, and 1 in)
shoertly, in a work of fiction, boldly to
striko out a now reading for myself;
but at the prestent time, as I have to do
with stubborni facts, I must be content
to jog ont in the oldl-fashionied way, and
admit, that there was sonmc truth in the
suirmises of an attachment existing be.
tween Mr. Karl and the pretty Adolino;
and per'haps it wvas not so wonderful
I hat such shotld 1)0 the case-all things
constideredl-for Adeline wvas, in honest
truth, a remarkably pretty girl, with a
s.>mothting so piquante and lively about
her, that you were lured awvay by her
fascinations, ore you had time altogether
to mnake ill your mmad that you were
doing anything more than considering
her as a very agreeable sort of a person.
As for Mre. Karl. T can't, na an 1,nnat
historian, quite agree with Adeline, i
saying he was very handsome.
He was quiet in his manners, elegai
in his appearance, and particularly a
tentive as to the make and arrangemeo
of his dress.
It was not until some time had clap
ed that Mr. Karl, finding himself e:
tremely annoyed by the attentions of
provokingly handaono youth towai
Mam'selle Adeline, began to questic
himself as to why he felt so much irr
tated; and then it occurred to him 1
the strongest manner possible, sudden]
as it were, without any mental train 4
reasoning, that he was in love.
If Karl, or even the pretty Adelin
had been slow in discovering the growl
of their affections, Madame Hartma
had been somewhat quicker; she he
had experience in these matters, an
could understand the very little inc
dents, which, unheeded by the partif
themvselves, speak volumes to a careft
and interested observer; and, as a wit
and prudent motner ought to do,. ab
deemed it right, before matters went tc
far, to know something more about 2,1
Karl Leibetz; it was true Mr. Reisthat
had stated hi-; family to be of the higi
est respectability, and that he we
instructed to honor his drafts to an
amount- all that might be very mell, s
far as their orignal position was coi
corned, but something more she thougi
ought to be known, as matters seeme
to be taking a different turn
$o one day, finding the opportunit
of making up some accounts with Mi
Risthaus to be very convenient, si
stated at once what were her suspicion
and begged to know who and what th
elder Mr. Leibetz might be.
The worthy banker seemed somewht
posed at auch a downright question, fc
he stared at madame through his spe<
taleis as if she had been a newly-discoi
erod error in his ledger, but the scrutin
was unmsatisfacb:oy, for the lady ha
screwed up her countenance in the mo
determied wanner; and, like Brutui
she paused for a reply.
"Tins in an awkward business, me
dame," rejoined the banker.
"Au awkward business!" responde<
the lady in surprise.
"I really don't understand you, Mi
"I am sorry for it, madame; but t
"It is a pity your daughter shoul<
love Mr. Karl, and it is a pity that Mr
Karl should be enamored of the younj
lady, because thero can be no marriag
in the case."
"What," screamed the astonishei
mother. "not marry my daughter!"
"'erfectly out of the question..'
"Is he married already?"
"Then what is there to prevent him?
"He has a father."
"And his father is--"
"Why, madame, I am not axactly a
iberty to explain; but as a friend tA
yourself and iamily, believe me when:
say it is quite impossible that a mar
ringo can, under any circumstanices
take plae; therefore I would advia
you, as soon as possible, to put a sto]
to this courtinlg.
The banker looked serious, ani
madame knew him so wvell for a mattem
of-tact personage, that she determines
on following his advice; therefore, o
her return home, without much circun
locution, she stated her mind prett
Mr. Karl hnmmed and ha'd like
man who had a great to say ; but did nc
know exactly how to exj lain haiislf
but madame cut the matter extrenel
short, by stating that, as a motheoi
anxious for time welfare and peace c
mind of her daughter, she was desireu
of preventing her affections being ii
revocably fixed where the objectc
them was altogether beyond her reach:
and if perfectly agreeable to Mr. Kai
Leibetz, his absence alone would brin
about so desirable ain object.
Mr. Karl looked very angry, an
tried to expostulate; but madame r<
mained firm, and the result was hi
departure from Hleidelburg on the fo.
The pretty Adeline pined for som

The important day being arrivei

When hier name was announced
n the next in rotation, she felt a passing
tremor of the moment, but the gracioue

t- her, and she raised her eyes until they

I- recognized Mr. Karl Leibetz; It ap.

d A Plea for Long Hair.
d A studen t on hair writes; whether the
i- hair should be cut at all I never could
as satisfy myself. As a a physiological prac
atice. I seriously doubt the propriety. Every
cutting Is a wounding, and there is sonic
e sort of bleeding iii consequence, and waste
e of vital force, I think it will be found
o that long lived persons most frequently
. wear the hair long.
The cutting of the hair 3timulates to a
new growth to supply the waste. Thus
the energy required to maintain the vigor
a of the body, is drawn off to make good
y the wanton destruction, It is said, I know,
a that after the hair has grown to u certain
length, it loses its vitality at the extremity
and splits or "brooms up.' Whether this
t would be the case, if the hair ahonld never
d be cut, I would like to know. When it is
cut a fluid excludes, and forms a cicatrix
at each wounded extremity, indicating that
there has been injury.
Women and priests have generally worn
e long hair. 1 never could imjagiile why thib
i distinction was made. The ancient priest
e was very often unsexed or devoted to a
vow of celibacy, but I cannot imagine
whether that had anything to do with it.
t Kings wore their hair long in imitation of
r Samson, and the golden Sun-God, Mithraq
- I suspect from this, that the first men
shorn were slaves and laborers; that free.
men wore their hair uilinutilated, as the
y crown of perfect manhood and manliness
d1 If this be correct, the new era of freedom,
t wh.'n it ever shal dawn, will be charac
terized by men unehorn as well as women
I wish that our science and our civiliza
tion had better devices for preserving the
integrity of the hair. Baldness is a defore
mity and premature whiteness a defect.
If the head was in health and the body in
proper vigor, I am confident that this
would not be. I am apprehensive that
our dietetic haoits occasion the Weaching
of the hair, the stff, arsenic-prepared hat
D is responsible for much of the baldnces,
Our hate-are unhealthy from the tricks of
the hatters. I suppose there rro other
causes, however Heredity has its intlu
ence. Certain diseases wither the hair at
its roots, others lower the vitality of the
skin, and so depilate the body.
I acknowledge that the shingled head
disgusts me. It cannot be wholecome.
The most sensitive part of the head is at
the back, wherc the neck joins. This
place exposed to unusual cold or heat, is
liable to ieceive ai injury that will be
permanent, it not fatal, in a short. period.
The whole head wants protection, and the
hair affords this as no other protection
can. Men have beards because they need
them. and it is wicked to cut them off.
No growth or part of the body is superflu
ous, and we ought, as candidates for health
and long life, to preserve ourselves from
t violence or mutilation. Integrity Is the
true manly standard.
A uonriiy Dome.
Father Borin, Professor Gregori, the
a well-known artist, aud Architect Ed

Sa new and splendid feature at Notre
Dame University, South Blend, Inuiana,
1namely, the erection of the dome over

, allegorical paintings, representing the
f arts and sciences, among others phiilo
Ssophy, astnrnomy, law, physics, thieo
logy, agriciulture, music, poetry, the
mechanic arts, etc.
'The dome wvas designed in 1879 by
4, Mr. W. J. Edbrooke, of Chicago, in his
rl plan of the college buildings. It is to
g be a strong and massive structure of
iron, gilt on the outside, similar to that
of the Hotel des Invalides, of Paris.

Dangerous American Eortunes.
An English writer says there is evidencc
forithcoming from America that fortunes
may be accumulated on a Pcalo of which
Englishmen have little conception, anc
that when they have been accumulated
their increase may be sought from a motive
which is never quite satiated, the thirst for
direct and indirect influence on affairs.
Europeans, even those who study it, un.
derrate American fortunes; first, because
they think the rich ujust spend largely;
and secondly, because they apsume what
is quite false-that great wealth must be
invested at about four per cent. . It may,
as American example shows, be invested
by millionaires, who do not care for rest
in work which yields from three times to
ten times that rate. Now, the governin
financlal fact aboit the Vanderbilt rail
ways in that they k)'e managed to yield,
and do yield, a steady 10 per cent.; and
Mr. Vanderbilt ought, therefore, to be in
possession of an income ot C2,000,000 a
year. It is not, probably, so much, be
cause part of his fortune must have been
estimated for probate duty on shares above
psr; but, taking it at only XL,50@,000,
Mr. Vanderbilt, who does not spend un
productively the interest of his dividends,
might easily at seventy own X50,000,000,
yielding an average of 8 per cent. None
of his known rivals, perhaps, cotild do
this; but their sons might, and it is quite
on the cards that in 1920 the American
Union may possess a dozen capitalists each
with ?50,000,000 solidly invested, yielding
incomes of from ?3,000,000 to ?4,000,000
a year. Be it observed, we do not include
any fresh making of money by tue million
aires, though they make it every day;
or avy calculation about compound inter
est, though there is such a force in move
ment in their favor. We assume only
that they live on the interest of their in
terest-In Mr. Vanderbilt's case ?00,000 a
year-and invest the remainder in the new
railroads, telegraphs, and atean lines which
they construct or regulate. The tempta
tion so to accumulate, in a country where
lazy wealth brings so little enjoyment.
while working wealth brings power,
status and celebrity is great, and the draw
backs to a man not afraid of occasional
threats, are not mtny. Railway mana.
gers are easily toand, other stockholders
take much work off the millionaires'
haiuds, and as against Ordinary accident,
so vast an investuent forma its own best
insurance. If an Englishman could own
51 per cent. of the Midland & Great
Northern, and appoint any director he
pleased, his wealth would be fairly secure;
much more secure than if he owned a
wheat growing county in E~ast Anglia, Is
the existence of a fortune of this kind in
the hands of a man whose business in life
is the acquisition of power, safe for the
conmunity? We cannot but teel a doubt
An Aume..c 4Aobeary.
It is now more than thirty years since
renry Layard, pa~ssmgA through o f
'the doorways ot the partially explored pal
ace in the mound of Kouyunlik, guarded
by sculptured fish gods, stood for the first
tine in the double chambers containing a
large portion of the immense library col
lected by Aqsurbaunipal, King of Nineveh.
Tue floors, ti the depth of a foot or more,
were covered with thousands of tablets,
all engraved with cuneiform writing: nany
in perfect condition, but the majority bro
ken into several fragments, frequently
widely separatcd and portions apparently
sometimes missing altogether. 'T'liese tab.
lets were of variaus siZes, rang ng from
one inch square to about n ne by six inch
es, by far the larger portion alike in shape
something similar to a pin cushion, or dog
biscuit, but occasiona:ly resembling a cyl
inder or small barrel. The lesser ones
contained, perhaps, ouiy two or three lines
of characters; the larger sometimkues nearly
one hundred. Friom the manner in which
they were hieap)ed together and broken,
and the fact that many have been founid
buried in umghibormna pafts of the debris,
it is evidleut that these chambers were not
the original depository of thme tablets, but
that the library must have been placed in
some upper alor-y of the edific" of which
they formed a part. Tbn.;, upca the do.
struction of the building, t'ney were precip

Some time ago Bishop Mlnkwmtz, a
well-known freethinker of Little Rock,
furnished lumber for the erection of a

neglected to pay Bishop Minkwitz, amnd

a seat among the ardent brethren, Du

What To Eat0 And Drink When Tricyolag
Some riders choose to take no regular
meals at all during their journey, pre
ferring to carry with them some plain
and simple food and drink, like a meat
biscuit and a bottle of cold tea or milk,
and to partake of a little very frequent.
ly as they go along not even caring to
dismount for the partaking of the re
freshment. We understand that this
plan answers very well indeed when a
long distance has to be made and there
is little or no time for rest. It is better,
nevertheless, to dismount take a light
meal of mixed food, rest for a good long
M&Mo to lot tgestron nave full swing,
and then on again, gently at first, brisk
ly afterward. Such a plin gives good
digestion of the food, quick and excel.
lent distribution of it over the body for
nutritive purposes, and a healthy and
sharp appitite for the meal that is next
to come. The diet itsoli can scarcely
l)e too simple. Animal food should be
fresh, not salted, and well cooked; light
animal foods like lish and fowl and mut
ton are yery good to work on; eggs and
milk are very good. A couple of eggs
beaten well up in a cup, mixed with
hot water, sweetened moderately with
sugar, and treated with a small quantity
of milk so as to make from half a pint
to three-quarters of a pint, is with a
little bisouit. 41n excellent sustaining
meal for those to whom eggs are easily
digestible. To those who can digest it
oatmeal porridge is very good io break
fast on; and to all who can digest milk,
milk is lightly thickened with wheat
meal is most substaining. Broad should
be taken in moderato quantity, and
fresh vegetables and fresh fruit are al
ways in chtracEer when not taken in
excess. Somo fruits which for a mo
ment seem extremely refreshing while
on the travel become a causo of thirst
if the day is very warm. I notice this
particulary in regard to orinnages, the
most tempting perhaps an( the most
easily obtained of all fruits.
Of drinking during tricycle exercise
I must speak with some care. It is not
very difficult to learn trioyole without
desire for too much drink of any kind.
But if the beginner does not learn to
breathe through the nose, if he ac.
quire the habit of breathing through
tne month, lie is sure to acquire also
tni desire to taxu iniatis i.ar too trecly.
He will become so dry in the mouth lie
will fool he cannot get on unless lhe has
somcthing to quench his thirst, and
that is an evil habit even though the
drink be as innocent as the purest water
itself. The first point, therefore, is to
drink as little as possible; to drink as
much as will fill up the loss that is
made by ovoporatug of the water fro in
the body and nob any more.
What the character of the drink shall
be is not very diffloult to answer, and
what it should not be Is answered with
less diffloulty, for ce'airly of all things
again it should not be an alcoholic stim
ulant. On this last named point we
who are advocates for total abstinence
from all alcoholic beverages have so
cured, beyond any mistake, a flue score
from tricycling experiences. Those who
are to seine degree in opposition to us
on the general question, I mean thiose'
who still hold that alcoholic drinks are
in their right place as luxuries and
should not be denied as luxuries, are
with us if they are practised tricyclists,
in expressing that alcoholic stimulation
is fatal to good, sure, and sustained
