THE LIBERTY BELL, Where Congress met and Freedom flung Its starry banner to the breeze, Exultlngly its iron tongue All thro' that summer morning sung Onr new born liberties. It told the ending of the night, Tho happy dawn of freedom's day, And overland there flashed a light Of brotherhood and human right. The end of kingly sway. Oh, how the good old bell saug out Of liberty and freedom's birthl From east to west, from north to south The message of its metal mouth Rolled all around the earth! It told the birthright of tho race. The glory of tho brave and free. And pealing from its sacred place It set the whole wide world ablaze With dreams of liberty. Alas, it utiers now no sound. But yet its echoes ring sublime. Its resting place is holy ground. Where Freedom stalks in solemn 'round Until the end of time. —Louis Sverre A monson in Philadelphia Ledger. Inflammable Goods. "My business here is to sell things," remarked a middle aged salesman to his friend, as he made a memorandum of a cash sale in his book; "and of course I expect to sell whatever goods people ask for, if I have them in stock. But I do wish thoy wouldn't come here and buy Canton flannel for curtains and draper ies. There is nothing that I sell that makes me so uncomfortable as this. I have had some frightful experiences with these goods, which 1 suppose have made me unusually nervous about them. There is nothing in the whole range of dry goods so inflammable as the fine grades of Canton flannel. I have had the house set on fire repeatedly becanse some one lighted a lamp in the vicinity of a Canton flannel drapery. I used to be very fond of this sort of goods, but there is nothing that would induce me now to put up a yard of it in my house. If you want to understand the occasion of my fears, just take a bit of the stuff and hold it near the flame of a lamp. The blaze will travel over it faster than a prairie tire. I have sometimes thought I would positively refuse to sell the goods, but people want them; and I sup pose no one would thank me for advice on the subject."—New York Ledger. Sparrows and Blackbirds. Birds, notwithstanding their attract iveness in plumage and sweetness in song, are many of them great thieves. When nest building they will steal the feathers out of" tho nests of other birds, and are often much inclined to drive off other birds from a feeding ground even where there is abundance. This is espe cially true of one of our greatest favor ites, the robin redbreast, who will peck and run after and drive away birds much bigger than himself. Very different as the robin and the sparrow are in other things, they re semble each other in this. On an early spring morning, when a little touch of frost still made the surface of the earth hard, I have seen a blackbird on a lawn at last after great efforts extract a worm, and this was the signal for a crowd of sparrows, who, by dint of numbers, managed to drive away the blaokbird and carry off the worm, to feed their own young ones, no doubt. —Cassell's Maga zine. Descendants of Some Noted Men. It is noteworthy what a number of men eminent in the era 1861-65 are now represented only irr the female line of descent. Neither Abraham Lincoln nor Jefferson Davis has a living grandson. Neither has Androw Jackson, Thurlow Weed nor Horace Greeley. General Hancock's one son left behind him only a small daughter. There is no represen tative of General Scott's name. A sin gular parallel runs betwixt two Confed erate generals, Stonewall Jackson and John Morgan, prince of raiders. Each died before the war ended, leaving one fair daughter. The two girls grew up, married happily, bore each a daughter and died soon after giving birth to a second child. —New York Press. Phosphorescent Infection. The curious discovery has beon made that the phosphorescence frequently ex hibited by many species of tho Crustacea is infectious. A French naturalist, M. Giard, has traced the phosphorescent light in Talitrus to bacteria in the mus cles, these muscles always showing signs of disease. On inoculating healthy individuals the same luminous appear ance was produced. Each and every in oculated specimen, however, died within seventy-two hours.—St. Louis Republic. College Girls After a Great Game. The Smith college girls were different ly affected by Yale's victory over Har vard at the annual football game. Some draped their rooms in black and went to the church the next day dressed in deep mourning, and one fasted all day Sun day. Those who bet on Yale gave a banquet, where the dishes were blue, all the table decorations blue and the wall paper one of solid bine, bought and put up purposely for the occasion.—Boston Black Cats to Become Plentiful. With regard to tho Consolidated Black Cat company, which is going to breed black cats by tho "thousand" on an island in the Pacific and make (so tho projectors say) "millions* by the indus try, I am of course very glad to think that maid servants and other ladies who ride in omnibuses and tram cars will soon be provided with handsome and fairly inodorous fur garments at reason able rates, but I tremble when I think of tho effect likely to be produced upon the canned moat trade. Canned rabbit curried (it is very difficult to eat it oth erwise cooked) is now a very favorite luxury in middle class homes. The black coated workingman devours it in prodigious quantities, finding it a grate ful stimulant to a digestion debilitated by double entry. But it is not to be supposed, it is not within the bounds of possibility, that the 'cute Yankee directors of the Black Cat company will let the "thousands" of carcasses of skinned black cats rot on their island in the Pacific. It stands to reason that those cats will be canned unless, indeed, some means can bo found of converting them into one of those fashionable and delectable concoctions by the aid of which the civilized Briton is fast turning himself into a sort of pariah dog or natural scavenger.—Lon don Truth. How a Gold Discovery Was Made. Mr. James F. Wardner, of Fairhaven, tells a singular story of how tho gold quartz in Okanogan county, which is now being worked as the Little Falls and Red Jacket mines, was found. "On Sept. 18 last," he says, "two prospectors, Redmond and Herrick, were out hunt ing and prospecting, and they had with them a bird dog named Skookum. They were working through the Salmon river basin when they came over a hill and looked down into a little ravine with a brook running through the bottom. They saw in a bush overhanging the brook a pheasant, at which one of the men shot. The bird fell into the water and the dog Skookum started after it. As he scram bled back with it in his mouth his paw pulled down some soft green moss from the rock at the side of the stream. The prospectors noticed that the stone showed white under the moss. They made an examination and found it to be gold bearing quartz. Thoy followed tho lead and located tho two claims. "Well, I had been for some timo look ing for that sort of ore, and so on my. recent trip to Okanogan I bonded the two claims, and with them included the black dog Skookum. We aro now going to take possession and arrange for de velopment."—New York Post. Christ mas at Sandrlngham. A friend of the Prince of Wales says that on Christmas morning everybody is wakened at an early hour, and at 7:30 mother and daughters meet in the breakfast room by a big open tire and examine the presents from all over Europe, heaped on a large table. In a few minutes the Prince of Wales and his two sons come in in rough tweed suits and knickerbockers from their morning "appetizer," a brisk walk around the farms. The guests then come in and all sit down to a breakfast robust enough to make lackadaisical imitators stand aghast, and then disperse as suits their fancy. Services are attended at 11, the Rev. F. Hervey officiating, and at 1 luncheon is served. After luncheon the prince and his sons go out for another consti tutional, and tho princesses for a drive. Dinner is served at 8, and after the principal meal of tho day—all hearty ones—the entire household assembles in the drawing room, where the evening is passed with old fashioned games.—Lon don Letter.
