By the end A January their "meal kists" had run k/w, and "a day off" was given In ?*hich the student was expected to lourney halfway home, meeting at this point his parent or brother, who brought with him a second load of the ilmple diet. Tba holiday waa fixed on a Monday so as to allow the uuder graduate the benefit of the preceding Saturday. In times past the Journeyg would often extend to fifty or sixty miles.

Trumpeting Ancient German Chorals. The most notable ornament of Roth enburg is the rathhaus, which no art? ist who visits the town falls to skeh-h. It ls of a most Imposing beauty, con ?leting of an older gothic building dating back to the middle of the thir? teenth century, with an elaborate re nalssance facade. It was from Its darkling dungeons that ma#iy of the instruments- <>t torture In the musou\. at Nuremberg came, for Kothenburg was not tender in Its treatment of prisoners. The earlier building has a high square tower crowned witta a beti cupola, whore thrice a week the ebotr of St. Jakob's, a reverend church lying within iis shadow, painfully climbs, armed with trumpets and other mu? sical instruments.

The First Postage Stamp. The black penny postage stamp ol IMO, the first stamp ever issu?*d. was distinctly unpopular and gave place to a red one after a year's existence. Great Pritaiu was the first country In the world to use postage stamps, and the Lngllsb schoolboy of the period seems to have regarded them as a nuisance rather than a national benefit "Have you tried the stamps yet?" wrote one of them to his slstei In the year 1*40.

Gwendolyn de Courtenay, the hand? some society favorite, was uervously agitated. Keen a blind baggage car Could see that. She paced up and down in front of the large cheval j glass in her room.

Nature In the semi has for innis shown him a g.! working aeroplane. The seed of the i**llver maple and the ash often fly In the summer forty or fifty yards. The seed's wing ls an extension of the pod When the seed breaks loose from Its bough the wing whirls rapidly round the body as an axle, Its front edge Striking the air higher than the re-t of Its surface and thus producing air pressure In an upward direction tha' carries the tiny aeroplane on and up in Wright-like Hight. The linden seed clusters show an aeroplane of tremen dous strength. The seeds hang on a single stem from the center of one large wing. When tlds seed aen>plane sets forth the wing revolves and point upward, bearing onward Its weight or seeds with a power greater than an> bird puts f?>rth. The box elder, tlc pine and tho catalpa are other trees whose existence is perpetuated by the aeronautical skill of their little seeds.? New York Pr Why Women Are Afraid of Mice. In all ages wennon were wppoftd tO he more prone to superstition than men, ami who knowi but that the dread of a Woman OH the appearance of a rat or a nie.use may not be due.

These are technically named shots, and each one marks a year's growth, so that bj counting them the age of the 03'ster esn be determined. Up to the time of its maturity?that is. when four years of age?the shots are regular and successive, but after that time thej become irregular and are piled one upon another so that the shel! becomes bulky and thickened. Feessil oysters have been seen of which neb shel! was nine Inches thick, whence they may be guessed to be more than OOO years old. Johnnie's Excuse. "Why don't you say 'Thank you.'

No candidate has ever apj>eared be? fore the people of Virginia that has been more iiercely assailed, more falae y accused or more completely vindicated by the searchlight of truth than Judge Mann has been in the al campaign. Mudslinging hai] left him immaculate in truth and honor, and has soiled only his as lailants. He has made a clean and %b\v tight, has refrained from the tricks of the demagogue and from thc joarseness of the blackguard. He las defended his record as a con listent and life-long Democrat by a limple and frank reliance on irrefut ible facts. He has not sought suc idss by traduction and misrepresenta aon of his opponent, but when re uctantly drawn into a discussion of lis opponent's record, he has made io charge that he could not prove, ind which he did not prove. His 5 targes have passed unanswered be lause they could not be answered. The people of Virginia cannot be leoelvad by false and reckless clamor ind by extravagant claims of strength or Mr. Tucker, which have no foun lation whatever in fact. Judge Mann rill as surely De tbe nominee of the lemocratic party for Governor this ear as the primary election is held rn thc 6tfa of August next. And the lomination will be made by no close Dargin, either. Uf the one bundi-.

He has been Chairman of the judiciary committee of the Senate, aud member of the committee of Finance and Banka*, and Privileges and 'Kiections. In the course of service, Judge Mann offered many bills, among them vari? ous measures in behalf of the Con? federate Soldiers ; the High School Hill, by virtue of which rule, men who esteem their good name will hesitate to put themselves np for a target.
