AN ORIENTAL GARDEN.
It Is Not Planted With Flowers, and It Has No Lawns. A garden does not necessarily mean a collection of flowers arranged more or less symmetrically, with spaces of lawn, shelter of trees and paths hither and thither. There have been gardens that, beyond a terra cotta jar or two holding a rosebush or a flowering al mond, have had no green thing within their gates. I know of an oriental garden in Fez where white garmented Moors come in the cool of the evening to sit and listen io ancient stories that they know by heart, or to music that was old when the pyramids were new, or perhaps to look at a dancing girl or two taking soft steps while they smoke their nar giles, yet that garden is nothing more than a series of arches upholding walls beyond walls, toned a faint, mysterious yellow that is not yellow, but white, and yet not white, but rose. In the middle is a pool of water in a stone basin that looks blue because of the in tense sky overhead and that shim mers with gold in reflections from the iTPalls. In the corner stands a mighty 3"ar full of strange scarlet blossoms, and rugs of deep color and intricate pattern lie on the sun warmed flags. There is always the fairy music of dropping water, and wonderful shad ows move among the arches. This place is a garden for all that it is so builded of man The word court will not do for it Century Magazine. FIGHTING FATIGUE. Jacking Up the Tired System Without Using Stimulants. If efforts to keep at work are con tinued in spite of fatigue the quality of the woik is poor and the exhaustion inordinate Students constantly make this error and do all sorts of things to keep awake to burn the midnight oil when if they would go to bed and rest they could accomplish far more in half the time in the morning with little or no fatigue. Tet there are times when sleepiness and fatigue must be overcome without resort to stimulants which injure the judgment. The tired physician with a critical case, for instance, must have his wits about him, and it will aid him vastly to go to an open window every fifteen or thirty minutes to take a dozen or two deep inspirations of cold air. His exhaustion in the end will be great, but he can make it up later. As a matter of fact, surgeons and others whose work requires the keen est perceptions instinctively choose the early morning for their best efforts, reserving the afternoon for "low pressure" tasks or recreation. That is, it is far better to so live that we do not need the stimulus of these extraor dinary methods of respiration.Amer ican Medicine. DIAMONiTcuF"blAMOND. O. Henry Was a Shade Smarter Than the Magazine Man. A friend of the late O. Henry writes of him: "He was reckless in spending money and frequently gave elevator boys and bellboys five and ten dollar notes But he wasn't 'easy' despite his financial regardlessness. "His friends recently narrated an in cident showing the man's shrewdness. A magazine noted for 'slow pay,' they said, contracted with him for a three part story for which he was to receive $1,500. He got $500 advance before starting to work and when he turned in the second installment (none of it had been printed yet) got $500 more and asked for the third $500 as an advance before finishing the tale "The editor in an effort to save mon ey apparently declared that, after all, the story didn't appear to be worth more than $1,000this when he had the two installments in his office. 'All right,' said O. Henry 'I won't write the third one then.' And hemere didn't. He laughed at the eidtor. "'Well, then,' said the latter, Til run the two parts and then let our readers have a guessing contest as to how the story endsand put up, perhaps, a $300 prize to the winner.' "For a moment the author thought he was outwitted. Then he said: *6o ahead, and I'll win the prize.' He inT tended to win it too!"Boston Herald. A WEIGHTY REASON. It Told Why One of the Nineteen Com missions Was Executed. Before a certain gentleman set out for Japan and India his relatives gave him errands. One wanted an Indian shawl, another a silver Buddha, a third a chryselephantine carving, and so on, till the list of commissions was appalling. He agreed, however, to fill them so far as possible. But when he returned he had exe cuted but one of the nineteen commis sions that had been given him. He had brought back only the chrysele phantine carving. This he gave to one smiling cousin amid the disappointed looks of the other relatives. Why, the disappointed ones asked, had he exe cuted that one particular commission and disregarded the rest? The traveler smiled. "It happened," he began quietly, "that each of you had written your commission on a sheet of paper. On the second day of the voyage out I took all these sheets of paper from my notebook, opened them and spread them on my lap as I reclined in my steamer chair. "The air was very still at the time, but suddenly a brisk wind sprang tip, and every sheet was blown away ex cept that of Cousin Max. Max's sheet "was weighted down with the gold coin he had given me to pay for his carv ing."St. J&mes' Gazette. State News. The recount of the vote in the Min neapolis mayoralty contest shows that Haynes' plurality was 33 instead of 34.

Goebel, 77 years of age,one was sentenced at Moorhead to five years in the penitentiary at Stillwater by Judge Taylor in district court. The prisoner was convicted of man slaughter in the first degree for caus ing the death of a young woman. One man was killed and another in jured in a collision between a string of freight cars being pushed by a lo comotive and a light switch engine at noon Monday in the yards of the Min nesota Transfer company. The man killed is Frank Sherlock, fireman, 31 years old, St. Paul, who died shdVtly after being taken from the wreckage. M. S. Bartholomew, switchman, St. Paul, had afoot crushed. Evidences of an attempt to manu facture "moonshine" whisky in Bel trami county have been found by revenue officers, who suspect that the illicit still was being operated by North Carolina men. It is thought the suspects have left the state. The officers, however, will take no chances They are convinced that the manu facture of the whisky has been stopped temporarily, but a watch will be kept on suspicious places. Members of a robber gang de scended on LakevilJe last Friday night and blew the safe of the post office. The loss in cash, stamps and convertible paper amounts to about $1,000. The explosion was heard by several light sleepers, but no oneFrank arose to investigate. The railway company is laying new sidetracks and has been using dynamite to break up the frozen ground. The blast set off by the bandits was generally sup posed to have been dynamite fired by the railway builders, and no investi gation was made. The robbery was not discovered until a girl employed in the office by Postmaster W. F. Roche enterted the building early on Saturday. The robbers stole a horse, buggy and harness from the stable of J. F. Brooks, a retired farmer, and are supposed to have made their escape to the twin cities. CORE OF THE EARTH. One of the Enigmas of Nature That Science Cannot Solve. Human beings know only a mere bkin of the surface of the earth, not more than thirty miles deep, while the globe is 8,000 miles in diameter. There is probably no oxygen at all below thirty miles, and it is difficult to guess what are the elements within. Prob ably the heaviest elements form a dense core near the center. It is in some respects astonishing, most alarming, that we are so com pletely devoid of any direct knowledge of the constituents of the vast mass of globe beneath us and really only know the merest film. A skin or mem brane one-twentieth of an inch in thickness (the thickness of kid or brown paper) spread over a ball a lit tle more than afoot in diameter repre sents the proportion between the the known crust of the earth thirty miles thick and the great globe itself. We are dependent on inference and speculation for our notions as to the constitution of all that is beneath the skin of thirty miles thickness on the globe's surface! Even what is thrown up by the biggest volcanoes does not come from below this depth or tell us what lies hidden there.Ex change Helter Skelter. "Helter skelter" has been sugges tively defined as a jingling expression vaguely imitating the hurried clatter of feet rapidly and irregularly moved. Most dictionaries, however, led astray probably by the ordinary orthography, have missed the true etymology of this phrase. It should be "helter kelter." "Helter" is an old word for "hang," probably connected with halter, and "kelter" is used by old writers in the sense of "order" or the proper state. Thus Barrow, the divine, says, "If the organs of prayer be out of kelter how can we pray?" "Helter skelter," there fore, is literally "hang order" and means, "Oh, hang order let us do it, or let it take its chance." Ben Jon son in "Every Man In His Humor" writes, "Helter skelter, hang sorrow, care '11 kill a cat" and Shakespeare, using it to express rush and hurry, says, "Helter skelter have I rode to thee." It's Nature. "I noticed in the store we visited to iay everybody was crowded around the perfumery counter." "That's not surprising." "Why not?"

A charter has been granted the Mille Lacs Lumber company to build a dam at Milaca, and toll at the rate of two cents per thousand feet has been allowed for all logs that may be sluiced through the said dam. The charter has been granted for one year only, and if at the expiration of that time the dam proves to be a benefit, the charter can be renewed, but if it proves to be a nuisance, as the lumbermen claim, then the toll will be done away with and different restric tions will be placed upon the damNotice company.

Several stories are told of Tenny son's thoughtless speeches. "What fish is this?" he once asked his hostess where he was dining. "Whiting," she replied. "The meanest fish there is," he remarked, quite unconscious that he could have wounded any one's feel ings. Yet his kindness of heart was such that when his partridge was afterward given him almost raw he ate steadily through it for fear his hostess might be vexed On one occasion Tennyson was very rude to Mrs Brotherton, a neighbor at Freshwater. The next day he came to her house with a great cabbage under each arm "I heard you like these, so I brought them," he said genialy It was his idea of a peace offering.
