"No," said the attendant somewhat regretfully and not knowing just what kind of an article Browning might be, "we have not."

The dodo, they say, is extinct; the ichthyosaurus has flown, and the ank and bison beneath the horizon wilL never come back to their own. The young man is extinct as the rest. He has gone like the dodo and auk; like the auk and the bison, beneath the hori zon we meet him no more in our walk. The mammoth and mastodon great and the megalosaurus have fled, and the pleiosaurns can never devour us, for the pleiosaurus is dead. The young man is extincter than they from the seaweed, the ooze or the dirt; no pleiosaurus comes up to devour ns, no young man to worship and flirt. .Leviathan's fled from the deep, and the unicorn's gone from the land, and mermaid and mermen no more dance the german by the shore of the sea on the sand. The young man is extinct as all these. He is lost in the depths of the past. Like mermaids and merman we once danced the german, but that was too blessed to last. But the sea, so they tell ns, is grand, and the sky is magnificent, too, and they rave their devotion to Bky and to ocean ill poetical hullabaloo. But why should we care for the sea, and why should we care for the ocean? With no man by thte ocean to whisper devotion the whole, horrid thing is a bore. New York World.
