And mayest thou, my daughter, my be?

and may that weed, the fiery, forever

to my loyal son, who kept his father's

he shall be the bird beloved which
dwells and sings in .gardens and amid
shady groves for the joy of happy peo?
ple, for the consolation of those who
weep, the nightingale."
And from that day forth the Russian
people have called the meadow orchid

The Ingredients of Firework*.
The chief constituents pf all fire?
works are gunpowder and its ingredi?
ents. Iron and steel filings and cast iron
borings, free from rust, are used to in?
crease "the brightness of the display
and produce the Chinese fire. When the
rocket explodes up in the air, the bright
and varicolored sparks are produced by
these filings as they ignite in the oxy?
gen.
Copper filings and copper salts are
used to produce greenish tints. A fine
blue is made-with zinc filings. A light
f greenish tint with much smoke is made
j out of sulphuret of antimony. Amber?
resin and common salt protected from
dampness produce a yellow fire. Salts

Deserted at the End.
William the Conqueror was a man of
very gross habit of body and at the
siege, of Mantes was hurt by the rear?
ing of his horse, the pommel of the j
saddle striking the king in the abdo?
men and causing injuries from which
he died in a few days. Bief ore his
death he was deserted by all his at?
tendants, who stole and carried off
even the. coverings of the bed on which
he lay. The body remained on the floor
of the room in which the king died for
two days before it was buried by char?
itable monks from a neighboring mon?
astery.
Typographical Errors.
American authors, no less than Eng?
lish, sometimes .suffer for the sins of
the printer. A line of Mr. Aldrich's
which originally read :"A potent medi?
cine for gods and men"- was misprinted.
"A patent medicine." etc. And Mr. Al?
drich's equanimity was upset on an?
other occasion! because in a serious
mood he wrote in one of his poems
"Now the old wounds, break out afresh"
and was horrified to read that he had
said "Now the old .woman breaks out
afresh' \ v v* .

fence to his next door neighbor)-Ht

Neighbor-Oh. Fm just repa inting

Nubbins-Garden seeds, eh! Looks

A Kins*? Miserable Encl.
Louis XL, after: having by open mur?
der or secret assassination rid himself
of the most powerful nobility of France,
died in miserable fear, begging his phy?
sician to do something for him. During
his last days he sent for St Francis of
Paula and offered him untold riches to
intercede with heaven for a further
lease of life.

A clever answer in court was that
given to Chief Justice Coleridge years
ago, when he was defending a lady who
had become a Sister of Mercy and was
expelled from the convent for refusing
to obey the rules.
She had brought an action for expul?
sion and libel. In the course of the
trial Coleridge nssumed that breaches *
ot discipline are trivial, contemptible
and should never be noticed.
"What has .Miss Sa win done?" he
asked Mrs. Kennedy, u mistress of
novices.
''Well," said the lady, "she has, for
example, eaten strawberries."
"Eaten strawberries? What harm is
there in that?'
"It was forbidden, sir," said Mrs.
Keunedy.
"But Mrs. Kennedy, what- trouble
was likely to come from eating straw?
berries??
"Welt sir;" said Mrs. Kennedy, "you
might as well ask what trouble was
likely to come from eating an apple,
and yet we know what trouble did
come from it" ^ t
That closed the discussion. ?
Too Much For the Sheriff.
An Irish widow with a quick wit one
day received a call from a sheriff who
had a writ to serve on her. According
to the story, the widow saved the day
by some rapid fire courting which took
the sheriff by surprise when he called
at her house and began in formal fash?
ion:
"Madam, I have an attachment for
you."
"My dear sir." she said, blushing,
"your attachment is reciprocated."
"You don't understand me. You must
proceed to court" said the sheriff.
"Well, I know 'tis leap year, but I
prefer to let you do the courting your?
self. Men are much better at that than
women."
"Mrs. Pbe?an, this is no time for fool?
ing. The justice is waiting."
"The justice waiting! Well, then, I;
suppose I roust go. but the thing is so
sadden, and besides I'd prefer a priest
to do it"
A Useful Woman.
"Blennerhasset," said Mrs. B?iggins
as he was about to start down town,
"can you let me have a little money to
run the hmise with today?"
"You can have just 50 cents." he
growled, flinging the coin at her and
slamming the door behind him as he
went out
"By the way, Bliggins." said a friend
who dropped into his place of business
an hour or two later, "will you go my
security on a note for $5007"
"Shortleigh." replied Bliggins. "it is
an inflexible rule in my family that I
must never do anything of that kind
without consulting my wife."-Chicago
Tribune.
Troubles of the Rich.
Mrs. Parvenue-The reason we stay
!onger in the country, my dear, is be
anse your papa is beginning to make
?o much money.
Georgie-Say, ma. do you think we'll
ever get so high toned that we will
have to-stay in the country till it's cold
enough to freeze you?-Smart Set
Full of Snap.
Greteben, the daughter of an old Ger
man named Kruegel, had been serving
as domestic about two weeks in the
household of Judge Vaughan of Kich
mond, when father and employer met
on the village street.
"Veli, yoodge," said Kruegel, "how
you like dot Gretchen by dis dime al
retty?"
"Like her?' returned the judge in hia
blunt way. "Why, she's just great)
We never had any one in the house in
her line that entered into work with sa
much spirit. Sile's full of snap all the
time."
Kruegel turned ponderingly away,
and, meeting his frau at his home por:
tal, he sorrowfully said: "Teresa, some
ding must goed wrong mit dot Gretch'
en. I yoost dit meeted Yoodge Vorgang
und he saidt dot she vas full of
schnapps all de dime." .

The value cf a plaster cast as a por?
trait of the dead or living face cannot
for a moment be questioned. It must
of necessity be absolutely true to na?
ture. lt cannot flatter; it cannot cari?
catur?. It shows the subject as he was
or is. not only as others saw him in the
-actual flesh, but as he saw himself.
And in the case of the death mask par?
ticularly it shows the subject often as
he permitted no one bot himself to see
himself. He does not pose; he does not
**try to look pleasant/* In his mask he
is seen, as it were, with his mask off.
A Sure S ism. f
little Dick-Papa, how does thunder
sour milk?
. Papa-It is not the thunder, but the
electricity.
"How does electricity sour milk?'
"It works certain chemical changes
in the constituents of the fluid, which
result in the formation of an acid."
"Of course. But hoyr ?"
"I don't know."
. "I thought you didn't, or yon wouldn't
have used such big words."
Christians and Jeers. 3
When Charles Lamb was berating an
enemy, some one said to him, "Why,
you don't-know him." Lamb replied. "I
don't want to know him for fear 1
should like him."" - *
Christians and Jews make ignorance
of each other a claim for judgment and
seem to be afraid to become acquaint?
ed for fear that they might like each
other.-Peters' "The Jew as a Patriot"
.-:-,
Spectacles and Moisture*
-Wearers of spectacles are frequently
annoyed by the glasses becoming dim
from a deposit .of -moisture upon them.
An .easy way to prevent this is to wash
the glasses every morning with soft
potash soap. The glasses should then
be polished, bot an invisible film will
remain which will prevent moisture
being deposited on them.
A -Painter's Troubles.
The desire of the Bank of England
officials to discover forgers has some?
times led to curious mistakes. On one
occasion the painter George Moria nd.
in his eagerness to avoid his dons, re?
tired to an obscore hiding place in
Hackney, where his anxious looks and
secluded manner of life induced some
of -his neighbors to believe him a forger
of notes then in existence. *
The directors, on being Informed; dis?
patched some dexterous detectives to
the residence, *ut Morland's suspicions
wore aroused by their movements in
front of the house and. thinking them
bailiffs, escaped from the back to Lon?
don.
Mrs. Morland informed the visitors
of her husband's name and showed
them some unfinished pictures. The
facts were reported to the directors,
who presented Morland with two twen?
ty poond notes by way of compensation
for the alarm.
Cn i a tie Tablecloth.
When a sootheast wind is blowing,
the visitor to Cape Town is treated to
a peculiar and interesting natural phe?
nomenon, for under such conditions
Table mountain, in the language of
the natives, **puts on a tablecloth."
In other words, the thin line of
fleecy cloud forming above it descends
until it rests fiat upon the mountain
top. with its edges drooping gracefully
over its sides.
It is really not unlike the article ot
household use which gives it its name.
