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

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

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.

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
