Breathes there a man with eoul so dead, who never to himself hath said, "My trade of l.ate is getting bad; I'll try acothtr ten-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, for such to bank account shall swell; no angel watch the golden stair, to welcome home a million aire. The man who never atks for trade, by ad or local lines displayed, cares more for rest than worldly gain, and patronage gives him but pain. Tread lightly, friends let no rude sound disturb his f olitude pro found. Heie lbthim live in calm repose, unsought except by men he owes. And when he dies go plant him deep, that naught may break his dreamlesB sleep; where no rode clamor may dispel, the quiet that be loves'SO well. And that the world may know its lose, place on his grave a wreath of moss, and on a fctone above: "Here lies, a chump who wouldn't advertise." Ex change. 1 Saves Two From Death.

The story of the Hamilton-Burr duel Is tragic in its brevity. The little party of five the principals, their . seconds and the surgeon was on the ground not long after sunrise. The prelimi naries were soon arranged. As Pen dleton, Hamilton's second, gave him his pistol, lie asked, "Will- you have the hairspring set?" . . "Not this time," was the significant reply," and then the men faced each other. According to the best authorities up on a disputed subject, Burr fired at the word. At the report, -Hamilton started forward with a convulsive movement, reeled, Involuntarily discharging his pistol Into the foliage above him, and fell headlong. Burr, with an expres sion of pain upon his face, sprang to ward him, but Van Ness, his second, seized him by the arm and hurried him down the bank and into their boat. Hamilton, being lifted up, revived for a moment and gasped, "This la a mortal - wound, doctor!" .' Relapsing again , into unconsciousness be was again revived by the fresh air of the river. "Pendleton knows," . he said, trying to turn toward, his friends, "that I did not intend to fire at him." At 2 the afternoon following he had breathed his last. ' , . . Monster Bowl of Punch. In 1694 Admiral Edward Russell, commander of the English Mediterra nean fleet, entertained 6,000 people Id a large garden in Alicante, where he served the largest bowl of punch ever brewed.

The .whole was prevented from dilu tion In case of rain by a large canopy, which spread over a marble fountain bowl which held the punch. The punch was served by a boy, who rowed about the basin of the fountain In a boat built for the purpose and refilled the empty cups. Two Scotch Storiea.

"Will he have an end?" "Yes," he replied. This was followed -Instantly by a buffet on the side of the head. "Will he have an end noo?' "No," said the boy,-and the masterwas satisfied. .
