What Most Impresses About the Thorn
Whon one ro visits the Thornwell
Orphanage after two or three years In
terval, as tho writer did last Thurs
day, ono is always astonished at the
growth. Always there are two or
three new and handsome buildings
with 8 condary improvements add
ing lo thj complete efliolenoy of the
plant. In short, tho Thornwell Or
phansgo his grown to be a great in
stitution involving a large permanent
investment and annual expenditure. It
would bo regarded as a most impor
tant foaturo of the town were it in
Richmond or Nashville, just as it is of
a town of 3,000 people.
However, it is not the bigaess or the
completeness or the architecture of the
Thornwoll Orphanage that impresses
tho observiag visitor. Rather is it that
the institution doos not seem to bo an
orphanage. That word brings to mind
always tho picture of children who are
herded at public expense and one
ihinkH of the inmate as a creature dif
ferent from other small human creat
ures, with its own peculiar stamp
which it must bear through lif#. At
Dr. Jacobs' institution one sees some
hundreds of girls and boys, each and
evory one with the air and manner of
content and happiness, quite equal to
that of children in most homes. In
deed, we believe that the children in
this orphanage enjoy more of intelli
gent home care, and, while they are
supported with oxtreme economy, have
more to help in right moral and phy
sical development than the children of
tho aveiage American household. This
can bo eald of few "charitable institu
tions." Or.e can't think of a home as
boing "instituted." The children's
homes liko this at Clinton are exceed
ingly rare.Public benovolences usually
fall just where Dr. Jacobs has suc
ceeded. Tliero are thousands of or
phanagos a*.d other institutions far
wealthier than the Thornwell, but the
inmates as a rule uro "herded in them "

THE WINTER OF 1361.
Coldest of the Mlneteeittli Century In
The winter of 1801 was noted for be
ing one of the coldest, and, in tact, it
was the coldest one. In the century.
The coldest day of the winter was Fri
day, Feb. -5, and is known as cold
Friday. There had been n heavy
storm of light, line snow. It cleared
off cold, ami the wind blew a perfect
gale, thus making the cold more fear
ful. The nlr was tilled with snow so
thick one could see only a rod or two
in any direction. Men who were oblig
ed to be on the road perished and were
found fro/.en as bard ns marble statues.
A very few travelers survived the or
deal. But few bad thermometers in
those days to tell how cold It really
was, but what few there were regis
tered 40 to 50 below zero in Androscog
gln, and in Aroostook county It was
even lower. Pcuobscot bay was frozen
over so solid that .Sam Randall of
Vnnalbnvcn took a horse and sleigh
and, together with the lion. Martin
Klff, who was the representative to the
legislature from Vlnalhaven, cruised
from Vlnalhaven to North Haven, then
to Saddle Island, then to Comdcn and
thence across country to Augusta,
where he left Klff and returned to Vl
nalhaven again safely. Portland harbor
and Hosten harbor were frozen over
solid. Thousands of the Boston people
availed themselves of the fact, nud the
ice on the harbor was covered with
an Aeeepted Korm of Sport In Knrly
That grinning matches were an ac
cepted form of sport in early English
days Is shown by an advertisement an
nouncing a gold ring to be grinned for
by men on (Jet. 0 at the Swan, Colcshill
heath, In Warwickshire, which appear
ed In the Post-Boy of Sept. 11 and 17,
1711, supplemented by the suggestion
that all the country fellows within ten
miles of the Swan should grin an hour
or two in their glasses every morning
in order to qualify themselves for this
Addison gives a detailed account of
one of these "controversies of faces,"
telling us that the nudlcucc unanimous
ly bestowed the ring on a cobbler, who
"produced several new grins of his own
invention, having been used to cut
faces for many years together over his
His performance was something like
this: "At the very first grin he east ev
ery human feature out of his counte
nance; at the second he simulated the
face of a spout, at the third that of a
baboon, at the fourth the head of a
bass viol and at the fifth a pair of nut
crackers." Addison adds that a comely
wench, whom be had wooed In vain for
more than five years, was so charmed
with his grins that she married bin) the
following week, the cobbler using the
prize ns bis wedding ring.
UNDER THE ROSE.
The Term Whteh Stund* an the Sym
bol of t lined I.lpa.
Sir T. Browne, in his "Inquiries Into
Vulgar Frrors," dated 1040, says of the
old phrase sub rosa, "The expression is
commendable, if the rose from any
naturall propertle may be the symbole
of silence," and goes on to quote some
Latin lines which represent the rose
bud folded in its sheath as an emblem
of closed lips.
He also speaks of the secrecy to be
observed "In society ami coinpotatlon,
from the ancient custome in Symposl
acke meetings to wear chnplets of roses
about their heads."
Others derive the expression from the
fable that Cupid gave n rose to Har
pocrntos, the god of silence, as a bribe
to prevent the disclosure of the amours
There are mnny records of roses
carved upon ceilings In early and In
more modern times as reminders to
guests that words spoken In convivial
moments should not be repented.

Their Tribe* Bstlntcd In l'uropr
Proui Immemorial Times.
Gypsies wore fouiid lu England about
1614, according to "A Dynloguo of Sir
Thomas .More" (1520), but the exact
year of their arrival Is unknown. They
were present lU Scotland lu 1505, and
possibly they were the "Saracens"
whose depredations in ibut country
prior to 1400 are <>n record.
Batolllnrd and other authors believe
that gypsies existed in Europe from
immemorial times, for they Hml no ac
count of thole crossing the Bosporus,
and no record is known to exist of their
passage to ISnglaud or Scotland.
They were better received In these
countries than in any other, but so
early as 1531 an act was passed re
quiring the Egyptians to quit tho
realm under palll of death, a similar
edict being Issued lu Scotland lu 1541
and at varying periods in most of the
Transportation across the seas was
nmonj,' the milder means adopted and
probably was .lie cause of much fur
ther dispersion of the tribes. Under
Henry V111. gypsies wore shipped from
England to Norway or Franco, and
from France, so recently us 1802, they
were deported to Africa.

An Old Favorite
By Ralph Waldo Emerson
LIKE a church: I like a cowl;
I love a proph?t of the soul;
And on my heart monustlc
Fall llko sweet Btralna, or pen
Yet not for all his faith can see
Would I that cowled churchman be.
Why should the vest on him allure,
Which I could not on me endure?
Not from a vain or Bhallow thought
His awful Jovo young Phidias brought;
Never from lips of cunning fell
The thrilling Delphic oracle; ?
Out from the heart of nature rolled
The burdens of the Ulblo old;
The litanies of nations came,
Like the volcano's tongue of flame,
Up from tho burnlog core below,?
The canticles of love and woe:
The hand that rounded Pctor's dome
And groined the aisles of Christian
Wrought In a sad sincerity;
Himself from flod he could not free;
Ho bulldcd bettor than he knew;
The conscious stono to beauty grow.
Knowst thou what wove yon wood
Of leaves and feathers from her
Or how the flub outbuilt her shell.
Painting with morn each annual cell?
Or how the sacred pine-tree adds
To her old leaves new myriads?
fach and ho grew those holy piles,
Whilst love and terror laid the tiles.
Earth proudly wears tho Parthenon,
As the best gem upon her zone,
And IMorntng opes with haste her lids
To go so upon the pyramids;
O'er England's abbeys bends tho sky,
As on Its friends, with kindred eye;
For out of Thought's Interior sphero
Tin so wonders rose to upper air;
And Nature gladly gave them place.
Adopted ttfcnt lnt?> her race,
Ami granted them an equal date
With Andes and with Ararat.
Those temples grew as grows the gras?; J
Art might obey, but not surpass.
The passive Master lent his hand
To the vast BOUl that o'er him planned;
And tho ; ame power that reured the
Bestrode the tribes that knelt within.
Ever tho llery Pentecost
Qlrds with one ft a mo tho countless
Trances the heart through chanting
And through the priest tho mind In
The word unto the prophet spoken
Was writ on tables yet unbroken;
The word by BCOrs or sibyls told.
In groves <t oak, i>r fanea <>r gold,
:*t ill floats upon the morning wind,
Still whispers tu the willing mind.
One accent of the Holy Ghost
The heedless world hath never loat.

The proper mental atmosphere creat

all the idiosyncrasies of Hick people,
has won half the battle. An unsympa
thetic, impatient nurse will do more to
hinder recovery than the lack of rem

that help or hinder; her very thoughts
are as potent as her general conduct,
nnd the sensitive patient will be Influ

Gentleness, patience and, above all,
tact are the requisites for good and in

lacks these qualities has Indeed missed

It gives us great pleasure tc/say that our first grand Spring Display of IMPORTED NOVELTY DRESS
-GOODS will take place on
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday,

SO LARGE is the range of Styles and Qualities that compose our
offerings in DRESS GOODS this season that few ladies can give
us the time necessary to sec over our counters what we really
have; consequently, in order that our Stock may be appreciated,
and as a matter of convenience to the ladies, we will try, as far as
our display space will permit, to have a show worth the attention
of all who want to see what the really Stylish Drc.s Materials arc.
