A ra?l|ant t-alnt. by my side *iie kneels.

With her perfect love confessed,
in tho trusting glance of her hrilllant cyea,
It's as "llopo" that I loved hur best.

Ono rainy morning in October I Kit
quietly redding my paper, when there
suddenly oanie to mo tho realization
that I was not alone. In tho midst of
my perusal of tho stock market quota?
tions, 1 experienced the peculiar and in?
describable psychic phenomena which
indicate tho presence of another living
being. As 1 am soiuowhat nearsighted,
it is my custom to hold tho paper rather
close to my faco when reading; and yet,
with it in this position on tho morning
in question, 1 was positivo thnro was
isouio one standing directly in front of
mo and looking at mo intently. Iu fact
it seemed to me as though, through the
four intervening thicknesses of my
newspaper, a pair of eyes woro burning
Into my very soul.
Suddenly 1 lowered my paper and
looked up. Then, just as suddenly, i
raised tho paper again and went on rend?

being who stood before mo was a wom?

Tho liig Trees of New Zealand.
To bring homo to the mind the stu?
pendous size of tho colonial oak, us tho
kauri pino of New Zealand has been
called, it must bo compared with the
largest trees in tbeso islands. In Eng?
land thero uro several elms 70 feet high
and HO feet in girth; oaks 80 feet high
and with trunks 40 feet in girth; and in
Scotland thero is an ash 'JO feet high and
19 foot in girth. But these are regarded
as extraordinary and grow in solitary
gr andern r.
Tho average girth of trees in Britain is
not inoro than 13 feet, nor tho average
height abovo CO feet. But in New Zea?
land thero tiro miles of kauris whose av?
erage height is not less titan 100 feet,
und whoso girth is not less than 130 feet
or '10 feet. Tho largest kauri yet discov?
ered was 70 feet in girth, and tho trunk
was 200 feet high.?London Cllobc.
Soiuo Curiosities of itooU Plates.
Tho chief source of amusement for

in tho grotesque errors made oil ar?

cither ignorant of tho rudiments of
heraldry or careless as to their meaning.
Thus many ladies will have helmets,
mottoes and crests on their plates to
nono of which are they entitled; while
some men will simply alter the namo on
their father's plate (say from .lohn But?

selves entitled to continuo to bear the
