Kp.iulding. The poem orirljially appeared in priit in tho New York D&i'.y Graphic in 1S70. Mrs. Spauldiii,? still has in her posses sion a note from Iiitor Croft'ut ai:cept ing tiie poem, complimenting it in the highest terms and regrertiujr that The Graphic coald not pay for poetry, no matter how meritorious. This letter has provtnl Mrs. Spaulding's claim and has confounded many an impostor. The words of "Fate" follow: Two shall be born the wholu wide world apart Axid speak in different tongues and lave no thought Kach of tho other's being:, and no heed. And these o'er unknown seas to Uiknown lands Shall cress, escaping wreck, defying deith. And, all unconsciously, shape every net And bend each wandering step to this one end That one day out of darkness they shall meet And read life'd meaning in each other's eyes. And two shall walk some narrow wy of life So neariy side by sido that, should one turn Ever bo little space to right or left. They needs must ttand acknowledged face to face. And yet, with wistful eyes that rever meet. With groping hands that never clasp and lips Calling in vain to ears tiiat never hear. They seek each ether all their weary days And die unsatisfied, and that is fate! Mrs. Spaulding was born in Bath, Ma., and received hey education there. Sho was married while very younr, and her wedded life was exceedingly happy, brat death soon robbed her of her hus band. She is describe-d as a charming woman, with rare conversational pow ers and a vast fund of entertaining in formation. Ske has written cont-idt ra ble poetry besides "Fate," and hor sun nets have been particularly admired by discriminating critics. Her best known poem is the only blank verse that has ever come from her pen. THE CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN. lieu Who Direct Operations at the National Headquarters 111 Washington. These aro busy times at the Repub lican and Democratic headquarters of the congressional campaign committees in Washington. Tons of copies of pub lic documents, extracts from speeches and party arguments are being sent all over the United States, particular atten tion being paid, of course, to doubtful congressional districts. Every such dis trict is very carefully studied, and such arguments are brought to bear upon thy voters as seem aj)t to be particularly effective, owing to the pursuits and character of the inhabitants. Campaign speakers are also sent ont in much the eanie manner, tariff eiperte being dis patched to manufacturing and agricul tural districts and soldier orators to dis tricts where there are many voters who are war veterans. Tho subject is made the most careful study, and every wire is pulled that will aid one party or an other to secure control of the coming house of representatives. The Republican headquarters are at 210 Delaware avenue, near the capital, and the campaign is being conducted by Joseph W. Habcock, congressman from the Third Yvisconsin district and chairman of the national Republican congressional campaign committee. Mr. Babcock was bora in Vermont March 6, 1850, and with his parents removed , iT--!i-T-. CHAIRMAk' BAWOCK.' CHAIKM AN FAULKXEB. to Iowa in 1S56, where ho received a common school education.

WATS TO MAKE A LIVING. Extraordinary Sasracity antl Enterprise of a Thrifty o u n Woman- "There are more ways than one to make a living," said a demure little woman, with flashing black eyes. "I know a woman who was left penni less in New York. She was riding on the elevated road one day when she was struck with the sameness of the advertisements that are posted up in the cars. She thought that she could write good advertisements, and she thought out a lot of little four-line rhymes for a certain article. She submitted them to the advertising manager of that firm, and they were accepted, and now she is making a lot of money every year with her verses extolling various wares." "Pshaw!" said the blonde who sat next to the demure little woman. "I knew of a case right here in UuiSalo that discounts that." "I don't believe it," said the demure little woman. "Well I do, and I'll tell you about it to prove it- A friend of mine, who had been doing some newspaper work, got the craze for writing ad vertisements and she went around to a lot of stores, only to rind that they were well supplied with people to look after that branch of their busi ness. She did find one firm that was willing to let her try her hand and sh began work. In less than a yerr she was comfortably off for the rest of her life." "Did she invert somo new style of writing or something of that kind? ' asked the demure little woman. "No," replied the blonde, "but she married the senior partner." WONDERFUL BABY. A Phenomenon That Surpasses tho Pow ers of Feiiasogaea and Medics. A real infant phenomenon, keeps all the medical men and pedagogues sof the good old town of Brunswick, in Hanover, in a state of wonder and de light. The little son of a local butch er, a baby just 2 years old, can read with perfect ease anything written or printed in German or Latin charac ters. A few weeks ago three Bruns wick doctors had the baby introduced to them at the house of one of the learned gentlemen. The first thing the little one did when brought into the consulting room was to stand on his toes at the table, read ing out from the books that were lying about. All that could be ascertained as to the why and where fore of this uncanny accomplishment is that, when the baby was 18 months old, and his grandmother took him out, he always immediately caught sig-ht of the inscriptions over shops, and asked about them as only a small child can ask, until he had fathomed the meaning of the letters. It was the same at home; books and news papers had greater fascinations than lollipops and toys, and whatever the parents playfully told him he remem bered, with the result that at the age of 2 years he reads with perfect ease. Apart from his accomplishment in reading the boy's development is quite normal. The Twelve Yellow Waistcoats. The Chinese order of the Yellow Waistcoat appears to be the most ex clusive order on the face of the earth. It is said that thare have never been more than a round dozen of members in existence at the same time. Li Hung Chang, the lively septuagen arian who has been deprived of his insignia, was the doyen of the con fraternity. Before him that distinc tion was enjoyed by the lat Admiral Fong, who held it until some three years ago. Join the Ganff.

It may surprise some old globe trot ters to know that the big ocean grey hounds running between New York ind the European ports carry on an iverag-e of 19,000 pieces of sterling dlverware for their table service, and that this large amount of plate is han dled during the voyage by from 200 to J40 waiters or "stewards," as they are called on shipboard. The ;hief steward is responsible for ev ry piece. He must be a man of quick eowers of observation, a student of ttuman nature and be up to all the little devices of a small army of sub ordinates usually keener. and quicker vvitted than those usually found ashore in the same calling. It is a busy day for the steward twenty-four hours before the time set for depar ture. He has purchased or contracted for all the supplies and an assistant sees that the contracts are fulfilled. But his personal attention must be jiven to the silverware. He keeps a regular debit and credit account and can tell to a tooth pick just what he will start away with. Gn the voyage passengers are apt to lose spoons or forks or other ware by accident, and occasionally a jay blade may think it amusement to toss a sugar bowl or half a dozen knives through a port hole. It is needless to say that he furnishes a Huid pro quo before he goes ashore. When the other side is reached the ihief steward spends a day in balanc ing accounts. He started with so much and so much should be on hand. If there is a diff erencedie seeks to find it, and if he can't find it he "makes good" himself. The responsibility of such a position naturally commands a high salary, and every chief steward onevery ocean steamship is, without ex ception, a man of unimpeachable in tegrity. The extraordinary record is that in thirty years there have been but two accusations of a betrayal of a trust. ONE OF CHINA'S CITIES. Canton, Where the Plague Comes From, and It Isn't .Surprising:. A line or two from Mrs. Archibald Dunn's new book gives a striking pic ture of the horrors of life in Canton. "The circumference of the city walls measures from six to seven miles, and within their enclosure there exist 61,000,000 Chinese people. I had been in many oriental cities and smelt many oriental smells, but those of Canton," say3 Mrs. Dunn, "were eiants of them all. The passage-like streets are open sewers, every de scription of refuse beinjr cast into them and forming continuous heaps on either side of the way. The water supply is raised from wells in the streets, the mouths of which are on a level with the ground, and a shower of rain, or drippings from the buckets : in which they lift it must carry back i the surrounding filth in a way horri- ble to think of. Through miles and j miles of these high, narrow alleys did j we travel, through the most fetid, air less atmosphere that human lungs I could cope with, through the most evil and noisome odors that could as- sail human nostrils, past the most ' loathsome sights in the shape of ab ! normal butcher meat such as dogs ! and cats, skinned and dressed ready i for cooking; rats, both dried and ' hanging alive by the tails; frogs and unnatural-looking fish in tubs of water, alive, and awaiting death and consumption.
