WATERBURY. EVENING DEMOCRAT, WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 20, 1895.
.OVERS. A Setflne OveTkrA la the Street An vwers toe Old Conundrum. Tired by a lonj day's work and feel ing a bit "blna ' gtct some matters which bad goro counter to nay hopes, I was walking down Broadway on night last Treek, oa, tay way homo. It was after If iolock and tha down town ttreets were almost deserted. Ai I turned through Sixteenth street I noticed an old lady and an older gen tleman Talking fikmly, arm in arm, evidently husband tuad wife. He was apparently about 70, sho perhaps five years younger. They seemed very fond of each other. There was just the least little inclina tion of the head of each toward the oth er, and tbgy were strolling along so slowly as to Enggest the thought that their pace was regulated not so much by the infirmities of ago as by the desire and ' pleasure of being alone tcssther. They were talking earnestly. It had rained earlier in the evening and the sidewalks were still wet, so that I had put on my rubbers before leaving the ofilce. Consequently my ap proach was noiseless. Just as I overtook and passed the old people the man turn ed to his wife and said, as if in answer to some remark she had made, "But, my dear; I like to think God sent you to ma " . From a lover to his sweetheart or from a young husband to a young wife tho words might have sounded senti mental, and would certainly have seem ed commonplace, but from a husband of three score and ten to a wife of 65 they had a weight and dignity which made them sweet to hear and wholesome to recall. Hero was the whole story of two lives told in a sentence. Here was the answer to the old question about marriage. For tbem it was surely a divine Euccess. Here at least was proof that tho writers of fairy talcs and of old time novels spoke truly when they said that " thoy were married and lived happy ever aft er. ' ' Not? York Herald. KOREAN CURIOSITIES. All the Tools Trlade by Hand and Native Iroa Used. . Frank G. Carpenter, writing about the peculiarities of Korea, says among other thir - "One yi our ponies had to ba shod, and another time we put shoes on the bull which carried the baggage. Tho pony was first thrown to the ground, and his four legs were tied together so that he couldn't possibly kick. "Then the blacksmith pounded hoop iron shoes on his feet with a rude iron hammer. It wf.s the same with the bull, though one man had to sit on his head while he was being shod. The iron seemed to dq very good, ana it comes from the mines in the northern part of the country. Tho tools of the country ar,eJtnade of it, and. tho farming tools are very ingenious, the three and four pronged , hoes boin quite as good as anything we have in America. They were mtking tools in this blacksmith's shop, and all the tools and plows are made by hend. "Tli blacksmith had a rude bellows, which was worked by a boy who stood on a seesaw and by moving up and down pumped the fire into a blaze. In other places I saw bellows which boys worked by pulling a stick in and out like that cf a cquirtjun, and everything is rude i the, Q-tvevna. ' ' Somct liabi rbjj vsss are shod by being strapped up tU,ii3S, so that only two of their ifc iai rest cn the ground, and the band which goes around the belly, holds the hrsa up while ho is shod. " Roxbuy Gazette. A Zake o2 Boiling Lava. Manna Loa, the gigentio Hawaiian volcano, has two craters cr openings, ono of which, Zilauea, is the largest active volcanic crater in tho world. The mountain is 14,100 feet high, and Ki lauea is situated cu the eastern side, about 4,000 foet above the level of the sea. This j3?.qgu3 crater is really a vast lake of boiling lava which rises and falls coneinnaJy by tho action of sub terranean Ijia. In tossing to andfro like a troubled cca cf molten metal the lava is dashed against tho cliffs and hardens there in the form cf long, glassy filaments, gigantic knobs, miniature trees, and in imitation of grass, leaves, eto. . Another form of glassy filament to be found along the shores of this fiery lake is in the shape of queer bunohos and tufts of lava mada up of an aggre gation of vitreous threads which tho na tives call "Pels's hair," Pele being the goddes3 to whom the mountain is dedi cated. These glassy threads appear to ba caused by the passage of , steam through tho molten lava. In so doing email -partictea in the shape of bubble like ballsons are thrown into the air, leaving a tail behind like a comot. When the scene of these miniatnra steam eruptions is near a rock cr the shore'all solid and cool surfaces are found cover ed with bunches of "PeJe's hair." This "liair" was formerly used in mystic native ceremonies, and of late years lias been gathered in large quantities by curiosity seekers. St. Louis Repub lic.

Milton' letters often allude to his mother in the most affectionate terms. The mother of Aubor, tho composor of French operas, had excellent taste in both muslo and fine arts. Southey'e mother was a woman of raro excellence, and deeply impressed her own Individuality on the poet. Roebuck said that the sweetest part of his life wa3 his early childhood. "Heaven is at the feet of a mother." 8amuel Johnson was net always an ex emplary son, and late In life spoke regret fully of one cr two acts of disobedience of which be was guilty.' Garibaldi's mother was a tall, com manding woman of great strength of char acter. It was she who first filled his mind with ideas of liberty. Cowper was devotedly attached to his mother, and often mentions or alludes to br in his writings.. One of his most charming poems was written in her honor. Leopold Sohefer, tho German writer, bad a good mother as well as a good wife. He said of both, "But ono thing on earth 13 bettor . than tho wifethat is tho mother." Dante had a gifted mother. It is stated by one of h4 biocrrsphers that his taste for tho terrible in literature was fostered by his mother's love of the stories told in tho chapbooks of that age. Tho mother of Genghis Khan was her eelf a soldier, and often accompanied her husband in his military expeditions, shar ing the fatigues of long and rapid marches and all the dangers of the battle. Maoaulay had a good mother and re-r vered her memory. Ho said, "In after life you may hnvo friends fond, dear friends but never will you have again the inexpressible love and gentleness lav ished upon you which none bub a mother bestows." St. Louis Globe-Democrat. PLAYS AND PLAYERS. Beatrlco Cameron, Richard Mansfield's wife and loading woman, and Ellen Terry are great friends.
