Consider how you would like them to live?what you want them to make of themselves. Then prepare them for it.

On August 1, shortly before mid? night, a general mobilization of the navy was ordered and the third fleet began to rome to a war hasis. Thi*. stej> was approved bv the (,'abinet on Sunday, the 2d, and made icgular by royal proclamation next day. All re . ervists had, however, responded to the Admiraltr summons, and on August 3, when the ultimatum was sent requiring Germany to evacuate Belgium, the whole pro.-ess bv which the naval power of Great Britain Is placed in readinesa for war was completed in all respects. At a preat w*r counell held on the afternoon of August 4, attended hy the principal naval Bnd mil.tary person ajjes bs Well a? fabinet ministers di rectly concrrned with the Admiralty, it was aprced to diipatch immediately the whole regular army not four, but six divisions, if necesaary to the Con tinent and to undertake their trans portaticn and the security of the island in thrir absonee. This eonsiderable un dertaking was made good by the royal nary, Once more now, in the march of the centurieg, Old Kngland was to stand forth in battle against the mightiest thrones and dominations. Once more, in defence of the hberties nf Furope and the common right, must she enter upon a voyage of greal toil and har.ard, across wateri uncharted, toward coasts unknown, guided only hy ?tars. Once more "the far-ofT line of storm beaten ships" was to stand between a Oonti nental tyrant and the doraination of the world. It was 11 o'clock at night 12 hv German time when Herlin's answer to the British ultimatum was expected. The windows of the Admiralty were thrown wide open in the warm night air. I'nder the roof from which Nelson had received his orders were gathered a small group of admira'.s snd eaptains and a cluster of clerks pencil in hand, WBiting. Along the Mail. from the direction of Buckingham Palnce, the sound of an lmmense concourie singing "God Save the King" floated in, and on this deep wave broke the chimes of Big Hen.

"Why did the little fool do it?" was hit query to his brother-in-law, Dr. Harry W. Cor.ant, of Camhridge, when the latter vi.-ited him in the City Hos? pital. Dr. Harris still lies in momen tary expectation of death. Dr. Harris came very close to death when he was operatert upon in order that thr bullets in his body might be removed. Suddenly his heurtbeat be? came imperceptible and all signs af life disappeared. Prompt use of artificial refpiration saved him, but the opera? tion had to be postponed.

A paper found in her waste baakel may also br of importancr, the policr believe. It read: "Ask Dr. Harris what trratment was in this case." If this was a memorandum written Monday, it would indicate that she then had no intrntion of ending her life. Dr. Atwood, it was learned to-day, in timatrd to the police in hi* fir?t inter view that prior to the day he shoe Dr. Harris he "sad contemplated suicide amid his wanitl over hi* sweetheart.

James Whitcomb Riley, Hoosier Poet, Is Dead good to me. Well, Val. ntine's Day was coming, a'ld all the boys and girls were busy getting their valentines ready to send My own brothers and sisters were busy like the rest, but I was so little that no pennies wer? given to me for valentines. I wanted to send some all the same, so I got some paper and drew pictures as much like those on the boughten valentines as I could, only I tried to make the faces look like those of the persons I meant to send them to. "After I had colored the rudely drav?n tigures to the life, as I imag ined, I rerr.embered that my valentinei had no mottoes. Those I supplied out of my head, making up the rbymes as I went along. There was'nt much poetry in these baby compositions, I fancy, but _uch as they were, they were my first rhymes." "Jk Marvel" Hi? "Angel." One of the tirst payments of money for his writing*, Riley ever received came from Donald G. Mitchell. "Ik Marvel," who at the time was editor of "Hearth und Home." The author said the check sent him up into the clouds, for he thought he had oh? tained a market for his outbursts at last. He therefore proceeded to pack up what he termed a "judiciously ae lected sssortment of veraes" and sent them to Mitchell. Much to his disap pointment, they all came back to him, hut the ^ting was taken away some? what by the accompanying note, which stated that Mitchell was pleased with them, but, as the pubiisher was about to abandon the periodical, they could not be printed. The poem, which was accepted and appeared in "The Hearth and Home," was "Destiny." Riley had heard that Henry W. Longfellow was in the habit of an iwering every letter he received, so he sent the verses Mitchell had re? turned to that author, with tha re quest that he !ook them over and give his opinion of them. Longfellow wrota back that the verses showed true poetic insight Riley then went to the editor of "The Indianapolis Joarnal" with Longfellow'a letter, and the result was that he found a home market for the productions of his pen, although the pay was not very big. Newapapers Puhlished Them. The flrat collection of poems pub lished in "The Journal" was "The Old Swimmin' Hole" and " 'Leven More Picces," all written in the Hoosier vernacular and signed with the pen name "Benjamin F. Johnson, et Boone." The verses attracted eonsid? erable notice throughout the country and paved the way for the author'* future suceefses. One of the most popular of these poems was "When the Frost Is on fhe Punkin,"' of whicn an extract follows: Wht ? ? t :,' . u .kl; _."<!
