T'he Katydid Orchestra.
An article in a recent number of
Science on the katvdid orchestra is

the sun, hs set aud trilight is ad
vaci_g, th katrdids in the trees be
gin t. 'tuni up.' The frst notes are
scattered, awkwarJ and without
rhyth; but, if no wind is blowing,
thousnus soon joim in, and from that
time until daviglt breaks there is no
intermission. It is -narvelous that
the organs can withstand this con
tinual rabbing for eight hours.
By choosing out an insect close by and
listening to it aloae, I have convinced
myself that the same insect keeps at
it at least for hours at u time. These
raspings are seldom three at a time, as
the popular name would imply, but
tire the respit of usually four or five,
sometimes si.x, distinct but closely
joined movzments.'' When a large
number o k.ydids are engaged in
this musical exeroise. there are those

The Whte Island.
In Counterpane country are hills of snow.
Smooth and white for the weary feet:
And blossorps of healing that greenly grow,
All untarnished by frost or heat
And dreamy rivers their sea do meet,
Never rippled by wind or rain;
And shadows walk in the silent street
That loads through thqcity of Counterpaae.
On Counterpane coast there are breakers low,
Whispering echoes of ancient rhyme;
Swaying and shimmering to and fro.
And singing softly from time to time.
And if on the milk-white liffs you climb.
A beautiful rounded sward you gain,
Where scents of lilac and lowering lime
Come down from the city of CoULterpane.
From Counterpane hills you maY ga:e below
On dusky forert and dim raTine;
No fear of evil that laud doth know.
Nor cares nor sorrows therein are seen.
But the lords of 31ay-be and Must-have-Leen
Bid on ride in their ga!den train.
And a Lauguorous. luminous glow serene
suffuses the city of Counterpane.

Mrs. Pricislla Miundy was hard at
work over the week's wash. wheu -a
loud knuek caused her to wipe her
red. suds-blistered hands, smooth out
her thin hair, roll down her sleeves,
and walk quickly to the door.
A woman of her own age and her
exact coniterpart, so far as face an d
form were concerned, stood in the
rickety poreb, surrounded by a big
collection of bags, baskets and bun

embrace and kissed Mrs. Mudy af
"You look awful worn and tired,
riscill," she observed, as the latter
led the way into the meauly ftirnisned
larior. 'H-w's everybodv ?"
Mrs. Mundy sighed before she made
r'ply. She had a great fashion of
sighing of late, and gooduei know-i
she had sufficient cause to.
'Tm waslhing," she ausw.!red, apol
ogetically, "and I suppose tie hart
work does nake a body look worn and
tired. The children are all well.
They're all at school except Tommy.
He's gone to towu with his father."
"So he's toue to town," observed
Matilda, with a particularly strong
el)mphais on' the "he's."

Why, they said he wouldn't allow you

Mrs. Mundy hung her head and the
tears started afresh.

But her sister interrupted her.
"Nonsense !" she cried. Don't
make excuses to me. You've got to

it. The coach will be by here in halt

She handed the shining gold to the
bewildered woman, and gently pushed
her frm'.i the room.
"What'Ji Tomi sayv?" ventured Mrs.
M1udy, timidly, as they climbed the
rikety stairs together.
'i'll attend to him !" was N4at.ilda's
:onident and rather spiteful answer.
''Say no more about it."
And Mrs. Mundy, who recognized
and felt powverless to resist the supe
ror will force of her sister, allowed
herself to be "made up." And when
the coach stopped at the door on its
return trip she was ready for the vi.it

INFLUENCE OF A SONG.
t Caused ArtistJ. G. Brown to Emi,
grate to America.
After thirteen months in Edin
burgh he went to London. Every
young man in the United Kingdom
with a particularly brainy head, and
, fine plucky confidence in his abil
Ity to hew out his fortunes, drifts to
london, just as in America cever
young fellows from all parts of the
ountry come to New York.
There in the vast metropolis the
young art student inade designs for
i manufacturer of stained glass win
dows and also painted portraits. lie
was getting away from the glass fac
tory a little. and was taking a
trorger hold on art. He was per
fectly willing to paint a portrait for
eight or ten dollars. He could fin
ish two of them a week.
One night he heard Harry R'usseil
in- some of his emiarant songs
Russell was a concert singer of those
days, he had a sympathetic voice
and sang popular songs. Thit sct
tled it for young1 Brown. I1e would
emigrate. He must "cross the wide
lue sea.' And he did. Ile arrived
n New York on his twentv-sceond
birthday, and he has been here ever
since. As usual, when he made a
change from one place to another. he
Pt oncJ sought for his art instruction
in the new field. I1is three pound
prize and his portrait painting at ten
dollars a portrait had not yet enabled
iim to sank the artisan atnl be-only
an artist.' So he got employment in
a glass factory,and went to the night
classes of the Academy of Design,
then on the south-west corner of
Broadway and Thirteenth street.
lhomas S. Cummnings had charge of
hese classes at that time.
So far young Brown's career had
been very lik~e that of the good
young man in the story books. Now,
in the story books, the good young
n:ui. as a rule, marries his einploy
rs daughter. So that thuugh this
is aways a most beautiful and de
ghtful thing, it does not seem
thrillingly novel or original on tie
art of the hero. Still. this is what

ter lie arrived in America. Ie mar

ever so much better able to endure
these hard times to-day when he is
sixty-three than he was then when
lie was t went--six. But he vent
head with tho grit that has abways
marked him, painting portraits. and
about this time he began to paint
bhildren, pictures of little boys and
!irls, with a story" in them. His
fondness for this class of subject
brought it about that after a while
ho was spoken of as "The Child
Painter.'" lHe is still entitled to this

REMARABLE~ AND) ASTONISHING
CURE OF AN EXTREME CASE
or ST. VITUs' DANCE.
How a Yonng Lady Regained the Us'e of
Her Arms, Limbs and Speech
in Three Weekcs.
From Oi. Standard- Union'. BDrookiyn. .s. .
Too much hard'study at school brought on
St. Vitus' dane. Such was the common ex
perience of Miss Glendora Rivern. daughter
of Mrs. Amelia Rivers, of 69 Ry
erson street. Brooklyn. The disease grew
worse every month, until the young lady's
entire right side became paralyzed: but, nor
that a marvelous and permanent cure has
been wrought. It will be interesting to read
her own versiont of the effneaey of Dr. Will
iams' Pink Pills.
"For more than a year." said Miss Rivers,
"doctors attended me without effecting the
sightest change in my condition. If any
thing, I grew worse under their treatment,
until February oft this year. when my condi
tion became criticel.
"I hd lost the complete use of my arms
and limbs and speech. I could only swallow
iquid, and these only as they fed me with a
spoon, when they could get amy mouth open.
I wanted to steep all the time. The stupor I
aid in was something like a trance, and no
doubt I would have died if they had not
waked me up at intervaa.
"The first week in E1 .reh may mother, who
i a ok nurse. was a-ivised by a neighbor to
ty Dr. W1liam& Pink rills in rayv ease. She
ot some of the pills-a box from Neilson's
rug store, at the corner o,f Myrtic avenue
and Hall street. Beforeo I had taken one
half the contents of the box a remarkabt"
change wWs noticed in my contdition.
"Gradually I regain-1l the use of my
arms and linhs and speech. and by the time
he ils were gone I was up and about the
house almost well But my mother thought
it wise to get another box of the pills, anil
tis sh& did, and here yon see me stand be
fr you with more strenthm and more am
hiio'nthaS I ever had.
