The following jioetic puzzle appeared several years ago in the ludiauapolis Herald, and at the time had u great run. The trick is to put in the necessary t hymes 10 that the first, rhyming word has a mean ing in keeping with the context, and sec ondly, after the inis.Mng word of tho first line is found the mK-Niug word ot the sec ond line must be etnetiy the biiuic, with the exception of hu-ing only one kttvi' pre fixed to it; and tho missing word of the Jbird line must be exactly tho same as the second, with Just out kltcr more prefixed to it, and all these must bo English words, in unison with Uio whole poem. To give cleur idea of what is meant, wo will here insert the, missing rhymes of the lirst stauxa: Thacsotain strode from fore to ah, As lordly on Ids tdiitplu ii.irr Is though it were moiiiu nuhlo niAcr.

It whs a blustery day when your cor respondent arrived at" Mentor, after a sleigh ride of six miles from Palnesville over a level road, bordered by farm houses thick enough nlniost to form w village. No one was at home but Mr. Kudolph, father of Mrs. (Jnrlield, and two prandsons, bright little fellows of f and 7. Mrs. (Jarlield live in Cleve land, but the Mentor homestead re. mains about as it was, inside and out, nnd is occupied by her father and mother's family. In the ball stands "grandfather's clock." the only ancient piece of furniture 1 saw about the bouse. While our party .sat around the hall baseburner. Mr. Kudolph, the father of the President's wife, slipped off to tho shed, split sjune wood nnd kindling, and made a lire on tho andi rons in tho reception room. Was the like ever known, but in a republic? With what contempt would a liritisher view such a proceeding on tho part of one of tho royal household! When the tiro was kindled ho sat and chatted of various matters in a quiet, intelligent and modest way, not at all alluding to Ids connection with tho late most dis tinguished citizen of tho republic, nor in tho slightest degree showing a con scious sense of the elevation of Ids fam ily, or a desire to make an exhibit of anvthiiK' about the premises. Here was a fair type of republican simplicity. Looking at ns from tho wall was a striking portrait of General Garfield painted by a New York artist. To me it seemed an excellent likeness, yet there were points about it that did nol satisfy the friends. They said it was painted, however, in a niurvelously short time, the arlist beginning at once with the brush without previously sketching or measuring. Just over the upright piano hung a small painting of "Mother's liible," with her spectacles upon it. In the hall is a portrait of Washington, . and at the head of the stairs ono of Lincoln. Near Lincoln's is a steel portrait of lSisinarck, with the gruff old (i'Tinan's autograph attached: also the picture of the .signing of the proclamation of emancipation, pre sented by Carpenter. Next is a sketch of the Electoral Commission being ad dressed by Evarts. It gives very good portraits of all the leading politiciaus of that time, including the wives of many who sat in the audience. Hooks arc in almost every room, on low, opmi shelves of the modern style. There was a good variety, yet few volumes outside of the eminenf novcli-ds could be called light reading. I noticed a beautiful copy of Horace that had evidently been a favor ite, and one of Shakespeare with a woru out binding. 1 was taken into the Gen eral's little study, and shown the desk that had been his in Congress, by the sido of which he had won bis fame, and i at which, wliMi transferred to bis home, I he wrote his .speeches and important documents. After lengthy mental labor bo loved to call his family into liN study, nnd recreate himself with anecdotes and cheerful con vernation. It was easy l determine the style of man who bad been the owner id these premises by the clear evidences of lib erality, culuire, artistic ta:te, domestic affection, and patriotic and religious sentiment. What a model for the pres- i idencv of a republic! - ('in. Uazttte. j L.. j An Old Cputention Bono. I (iibraltiirisconstant.lv being .strength ened, both by new works and by im proved guns in place of the old ones. A 100-ton Anm-trong breach-loader was brought here from Woolwich two days ago, and another is expected before tho eiid of tho month. - Froiu 6,000 to Ct'OO men are constantly slsfionod here. At present the force consists ot four regi ments of infantry and one pf artillery, and as much vigilance is displayed by the military as if a state of War existed with t heir easy-going neighbors of Spain. Between the possesions of the two countries is a piece id flat, sandy soil, about l.oOO yards in length and tho. same in width, known as the "neutral ground," on either side of which the English and Spanish sentries have been at their posts wiihin sight of each other over since the ear 1701! -.V. J'. TrUmne, Sound Doctrine, One of the professors of Princeton college in his address to the, students called attention to tho fact that there was too nni-h athletics in the colleges anil not enough brain work. He said one is impressed with the fact that in strolling it bout the colleges of the coun try nothing can be heard about educa tional matters and the subject of books seldom enters the minds of the students, but athletic sports occupy their whole time ami attention. This professor has struck a key note, and called attention to an evil that should be stopped. A moderate doso cf athletic sports mixed in with a thorough college education will not injure tho young men who are graduating from the colleges of the country, but when the students get tho idea, as they seem to have, that mus cles like a prize-lighter and a hand like a base-ball is all that is essential to a college education, then it is time for a reform. There is no question but that one-half of tho young men in college think vastly more of cultivating their muscles than they do of cultivating their brains, and it is timo tho colleges of the country were transformed from a gymnasium into a school for cultivating tint intellect. Millions of dollars have U-en siient in erecting colleges, and thousands of dollars are yearly spent in j sending young men to these schools of ! learning and keeping them there, to have them graduate, or leave in a few I years with nothing to show for their ! time spent in college except a knowl I edge of bow to row a boat or play a I game of ball. It is seldom one hears I of the progress of the Si'voral classes in i the colleges except it be in the line of Isiat-racing or winning a game of base ball, or hazing a fellow member, and un let. there Ls a reform inaugurated, and the colleges pay more attention to books and less to athletic sports, tbe public will soon think that tho sending of our young men to college is a u-eleps piece of extravagance. As it now is there aro more young men from the bottom of the ladder of mercantile life, and from the farm, tilling tho counting rooms, nnd th college graduate is forced to the farm or a lumber-yard to earn a living: The Princeton professor is sound nnd he should be supported in his theories. iVrt'j Sun. Sharks. I Sharks, as a rule, have round bodies. Pointing with his stick to a largo illus tration of a shark on tho screen, the Professor desired his audience to note that the mouth Mas away down uudor neath the head, instead of at tho ante rior of the head, as in most fishes. Tho . most marked characteristic of sharks is their voracity. They will eat anything tli.'it. comes in their ivnv iml il,..; 1 1 I... !.i..,i .... J", : teeth, so that as soon as one set are torn out or rendered worthless, another i set takes their place. ' j The lecturer held up to view the jaws of a good-sized shark, and explained ' that the teeth were set in a touo-h but ! very durable cartilage. The teeth of most sharks will cotuo out very easily. The size to which sharks grow can lie judged by their teeth. In the jaws ex hibited by Professor Diekmorethe teeth wero about nH large as a man's thumb nail, but tho Professor showed a largo tooth which he said must have belonged to a shark .'JO or oO feet long. The tooth was about fix iuches long, and was found in a phosphate bed in South Carolina. The teeth of some sharks, particularly the man-eaters, aro sharo and pointed like spikes, while the teeth of another class of sharks arc set into the j aws flat like paving-stones. In a spare hour on board ship a sailor will take as much satisfaction in sharp ening a shark hook as a barber does in strapping a razor. After a shark is captured and hauled aboard the vessel the sailors cut it up into as many small pieces as possible before throwing it overboard. Sharks are as tenacious of life as cats, and it is necessary to cut them all to pieces in order to kill them. On one occasion some sailors caught a good-sued shark, and, after getting it on deck, dispatched it, as they thought. They cut ut one entire side of" its mouth and threw the mangled carcass back into the water. A little while j afterward they caught the samu shark, i apparently ns full of life and niiscllicf as . ever. The shape and peculiarities of the ' thrashing shark were shown and de- i scribed. This fish lias a tough and ugiv looking tail longer than the body, with which it thrashes and disables its ene-', mies. It is a formidable and rclentle.-s adversary of the whale, and liutils thei leviathan of the deep in company with I the sword-fish. "These fish travel in i packs like wolves," said tho Professor, j When a whale is attacked the sword-' iish go dow n under it, and by pricking and cutting it in the belly they force the monster to rise to the "surface of the 1 water. Then the thrashing sharks raise their tails and lash the whale across the back. The oword-lish and the sharks keep up their combined assaults until their mammoth, but as against them, powerless adversary is deaiC The only pari of the whale that is eaten by the thrashing sharks is the toiigue. It is not known that the sword fish cat auy part of a whale. They ap pear to join with the thrashing sharks in assaulting w hales only out of pure viciotisucss. "With all thiur voracity," tho lecturer said, "the sharks aro en titled to the credit of caring for ono an other. Young sharks aro watched and protected by the older ones." Professor liickmore next took up the rays or skates, and pointed out tho principal characteristics of thoses lishes. Somo rays, he said, were regular electric bat teries, which could produce currents of electricity from their body of sufficient power to knock a strong man down. from a Letter by I'rofcanor Mickmort.
