They will Insure her constancy.

The February born will find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and from care.
If they the amethyst will wear.

In March first open shall b wise;
In days of peril firm and brave,
And wear a bloodstone to their gra.e
She who In "April dates her years
Diamonds should wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance. Ho ; this atone

Who first beholds the light or day

And wears and emerald all her life,

The glowing ruby should adorn
Those who la warm July are born ;
Than will they be exempt and free
From love's doubt, and anxiety.
Wear a sardonyx, or ror thee
No conjugal felicity ;
The August born, without this stone,
'TIs said, must lire unloved and lone.
A maiden born when autumn leaves
Are rustling In September's breeie,
A sapphire on her brow should bind
'Twill cure diseases or the mind.
October's child Is born for woe,
And life's vicissitudes mnst know ;
k But lay an opal on her breast.
And hope will lull those words to rest.

"It's too bad!" declared little Flo Stet
son, pulling offlierliat. She bad come to
spend the Minny half-holiday with her
cousin, who'e name was the same as her
own. but who didn't begin to be so rosy
and dimpled. "I don't call such things as
U'liaU" asked Hon, glancing up list
lessly from a lapful of cam ass and worsted.
And Flo told her. It was at school the
day before, whLh had been the last day of
.March, that the boys had been recounting
the tricks they had played in other 1 cars,
and little Micky Lanahan asked In his tun
ny nay, ''Sure, an' who bees April fool?"
Micky was a new boj. lie stood leaning
against the school-) anl fence as he spoke,
with his small red hands in his pockets and
an anxious look on his face as ho gazed
down at his boots. Those boots were a
sad trouble to Micky; they were very
large, and the toes turned up and gaped
woftilly, and (hey were all he'fiad.
A shout arose in answer to Micky's
question from that merry thoughtless
"He don't know April fool, boys."
"Oh, Boots I"
"We've been acquainted with him eTer
"Aud we'll ghcvoii an introduction
when the time comes," laughed Fred
"Won't we, boys?"
"And they're going to,' said Flo ''Fred
and Teddy Blake and I don't think It's
fair. His folks arc real poor, and his
mother's sick almost all the time. They
make fun of his boots, jou know they are
dreadful things, really and so they arc go

shoes come lu ou the door, with a bundle
of papers in it, aud 'April Fool' printed on
the inside piece. And they're going to
look In the window and see Micky when he
gets it. Fred's fooled me lots of times to
day, but I don't care for that. I don't
think it's much fun, though, and it's mean
to fool that little Sticky Lanahan. .So 1"
Flo's cheeks glowed cherry red, and she
talked rapidlv. FI01 a listened with kind

I've get two dollars now, and I was going

dy ! And Fred said he wouldn't be fooled
once this April. Oh, oh !''
Flo could not wait, fehe put on her hat
and almost flew down to the shoe store and
back again. Frcd'a box neatly tied up was
on the table in the hall waiting for night,
and it was only the work of a moment to re
place the little bundle of papers with a
pair of stout shoes.
"Such fun 1" said Flo to herself, and she
almost burst out laughing when, after tea,
Fred took the box from tbr ball table and
went of with Teddy Blake.
"After all I don't hair like this," he said
to Teddy. "If it was another fellow I
wouldn't care a snap. But of course it
was only lutt. I told him we'd introduce
"Of course," laughed Teddy ; and so
they made their nay down a cross street
and through the alley to the little tumble
down house that Micky Lanahan called
Fred put the box down quietly at the
door and rapped. They had plenty of
time to dodge around the corner of the
bouse to a window ; and there they were
looking In even before Micky had bis hand
on the latch.
It was such a poor little room, bare-walled,
bare-floertd and scantily furnished ! A
thin-faced woman sat bolstered up la the
only rocking-chair it contained, and a lamp
burned dimly on the rickety table. The
big boots stood in a corner, and when Fred's
gaze fell upon then be suddenly turned it
the other way.
"Ted," be whispered, "I wbisb we
hadn't. I do wish we hadn't, Ted."
There waa a shrill cry of joy from Micky
then. He bad opened the door and dis
covered the box, and bis freckled face was
beaming with delighted surprise when be
came back Into the room.
"Ocb, mother, tl do be shoes I" he tried.

I think yon cannot imagine two more

away, from Mrs. Lanaban's window, and
hastened off home in the darkness.

Biographical Sketch of the Great Philan
Peter Cooper was born in New York,
February 12, 1791. His maternal grandfa
ther,! John Campbell, was an alderman of
New fork, and Deputy Quartermaster-General
during the Revolutionary war, and ex
pended a considerable private fortune In
the service of his country. His tatber was
a Lieutenant in the War of thcRevolutiou,
after the close ol which he established a
bat manufactory. This periou of Peter
Cooper's life wai one of great anxiety and
bard labor, as bis father n a- not successful
in his undertakings, and had a large family
to provide for. He attended school onlj
half of each month for a single year, and
beyond the knowledge thus gained his ac
quisitions were ctilire'y his own. At the
age of seventeen, be was apprenticed to
the trade of coach-making, and served out
his time so much to the satisfaction of his
master, that the latter offered to set hint up
in business, w hlcb he declined. He follow
ed his trade for some time; next engaged
n the manufacture of patent machines for
shearing cloth, which were in great de
mand during the war of 1S12, but lo-t all
value, ou the declaration of peace ; then
in the manufacture of cabinet ware ; then
in the grocery business, In the city of New
York; and finally in the manufacture of
glue and linglas, which he carried on for
His attention was early called to the
great resources of this country for the man
ufacture of iron, and in lS-IO be creeled ex
tensive works at Canton, near Baltimore.
Disposing of them, he subsequently built a
rolling and wire mill in the city ol New
York, in which be first successful!) ap
plied anthracite to the puddling of irou.
In 1345, be removed the machinery to Tren
ton, New Jersey, where he erected the
largest rolling mill at that time In the Uni
ted States for the manufacture of railroad
Irou, and at which subsequently he was
the first to roll wrought iron beam, for
fire-proof buildings. These mills have
grown to be very extensive, Including
mines, blast furnaces aud water power. :ud
are now tarried on by Mr. Cooper's family.
While in Baltimore, he built after bis own
designs the first locomotive engine ever
constructed on this continent, and it was
used successfully on the Baltimore .V Ohio
road. He took great interest in the exten
sion of the electric telegraph, in which be
invested a large capital.
He served in both branches of the New
York common council, and was aprouiinctit
advocate of the construction of the Croton
aqueduct. His great object was to educate
aud elevate the industrial classes ol Hie
community. He early became a trustee ol
the Public School Society, and at the time
of its becoming merged iu the ISojuI of
Education, was its President. He subse
quently became a School Commissioner,
but feeling that no common school system
could supply a technological education, be
determined to establish in bis native city
an institution In which the working elates
could secure that instruction which be,
when young and ambitious, sought In vaiu.
In furtherance of this object, the "L'nioti
for the Advancement ol Science and Art,"
commonly called the "Cooper Institute."
was erected in New York, at the junction
ol Third and Fourth avenues, betweeu
Seventh and Eighth Streets, covering the
entire block, -at a cost of over f 050,000, to
which Mr. Cooper has since added nu en
dowment of $150,000 iu cisli. This build
ing is devoted by a deed of trust, with all
its rents, issues and profit', to the instruc
tion and education of the working cl-ts-es
of the city ol New York. The plan in
cludes regular courses of instruction jl
night, free to all who choo-c to attend, on
social and political science, ou the applica
tion ol science to the useful occupation? of
life, and on such other branches of know I
edge as will tend to improve aud elevate
the workiug classes. It includes also a
school ol design for females, now attended
by -00 pupils, a free rcadltig-rooni and
library, resorted to by about 1,500 readers,
galleries ol art, collections of model Inven
tion, and a polytechnic school. The even
ing schools are attended by 2,0u0 pupils,
mostly young mechanic", who study min
ing, metallurgy, engineering, analytical
and synthetic chemistry, architectural
drawing and practical building. There
are also, for women, a school of telegraphy
which, in four years, has sent out 300 oper
ators, a school of wood engraving, and a
school of photography, all ol which are
free, and well attended. These schools
employ upward of thirty instructors.
Mr. Cooper took no acthepart lu politics,
but nevertheless became the Greenback
candidate for the Presidency, in 187(1. Not
withstanding bis great age, he retained bis
mental and physical faculties until neatly
the close or bis life, and on the 12th of last
February, his 92nd birth-day, received un
ovation at Cooper Institute, and made a
brief speech. During his long life he ac
cumulated great wealth, which was dev ot

Texas giant, and I learned that be was a
near neighbor of mine host. Mr. Franklin

the room and two joists, which rested upon
the end plates, the bouse having the gables
weatherboarded. The giant sat smoking

it is not so long ago that the goblin, who
showed himself on the eve of great'disas-
ters, was mentioned with bated breath, not
only tn the palace, but by many of the in
habitants of the Louvre Quarter. There Is
no record to show when he first took up
his lodging at the Tuileries, but It is affirm
ed that be disclosed bis existence there
most unmistakably, during the great revo
lutionary period. A few days before the

goes Marie Antoinette's women wereslt.

small man clothed from crown to heel la
scarlet, who looked at them with such un
earthly eyes that they were frozen with
terror. They rushed to the apartment of
Madame Ia Dauphine. and related their ad
venture. The next apparition of the Ued Man was
in 1814, In the presence of the little King of
Rome and his attendants ; and the red flg.

this time InltheOalerie du Louvre. In
1815. however, much discredit was ;thrown
upon'tbe ghost's existence by the practical
joking of some art stuilentsattached to
firoa's studio at the Louvre.Some ot the
Louvre apartments bad been placed at the
disposal of ruined emlgrauts who haJ re
turned to France and found a protectress
in the Duchesse d'Augouleme. JAtnong
these were two old malden'ladles and a
Knight of St. Louis, who were dining
together, one evening, when, to their su
preme astonishment, a "grand dlable
rouge" came down the chimney, and
snatching "a leg of niuttou from.the table,
disappeared with it by the way he came.
The incldeut was reported to the Duchess,
who -ought the presence of the King, and
with tears pouring down her face, declared
her conviction that some great misfortune
was Impending. The King laughed at bis
niece's fears, and sent for a chimney-sweeper.
A boy who went up the chimney to
look for the "diable rouge" did not return.
A man was then sent up, but nothing more
was seen or heard of bim. The greatest
excitement reigned in the palace, and at
length a fireman undertook to explore the
haunted chimney. He returned and ex
plained the mystery. It appeared that the
chimney passed by Uros's studio, and that
his pupils, by making a hole In the wall,
were enabled to play these pranks upon
illustrious personages. Tbey had made the
two sweeps their confederates, but the lire
man was not to be bribed. A writer In one
of the Paris papers, who recalls this anec
dote, relates in all seflousnesa the circum
stances under which the genuine goblin ot
the Tuileries made bis final appearance. It
wis in 1871, during the last days of the
Commune. The journalist had the story,
he says, fiom the lips of the witness, who
trembled while he 4toKl It. He was a con
citrgi at the Louvre, and while making bis
accustomed round, one night, lantern in
hand, through the silent galleries, he oL
served in the Galcrie d'Apotlon a human
form, standing against a window, with
crossed arms an 1 drooping head, In an at
titude of profound affliction. Believing he
had surprised a robber, the concitriit nsii
toward the intruder, who thereupon dis
appeared in a most mysterious fashion. He
tried to persuade himself that his senses
had deceived bim, when ou reaching the
Grande Galerie he saw the same figure
again, in the same melancholy posture. On
being challenged the form vanished. The
ofliclal then remembered the legend of the
Ifommt Rov.t, and lost no time In regaining
thu street. Presently he returned with
some or his comrades, to whom he had re
lated what be bad seen ; but this time the
search for the goblin was fruitless, and was
cut short by an other kind of apparition a
lurid glare in the sky. The Communists
hid beguu their iucendiary work, and the
next day the flames shot out of every win
dow of the Tuileries. It will be seen that
the Red Man not only haunt- the palace
with which his name is associated, but also
the adjoining building of the Louv re. So
it is doubtful ir be will quit the precincts
lo which be Is linked by so many associa
tions, even when there is not a stone left
to tell where the Tuileries once stood.

DEATH OF JUDGE NATHAN PRICE.
Trior, Kas., April lltb. Judge Nalban
Price was found about 8 o'clock this even
ing, sitting in his office dead, apparently as
If he had died while asleep. His friends
inis-ed htm and went In search of him.
Ills office door was locked, but be could be
seen through the crack of the partition,
sitting in bis chair. The door waa broken
In and he was found to be dead. At this
writing It is thought to be suicide. He
complained in the morning of being in
great distress and that he should have to
take something. In the afternoon he pro
cured some corn meal, saying he wished to
poison mice in his office. This meal was
found ou his lingers, face and clothing, and
scattered on the floor. He must have been
dead several hours when found. The cor
oner is now preparing to bold an Inquest,
when further particulir may be develop
ed. Judge Price was one of Ihe oldest res
idents aud a lawyer of high standing.
W. II. Rosslngton Esq., In the following
words, written for the Vommontmltk payi
a just tribute to the man, who has bad
much to do with all that pertains lo the
proud legal and political State of Kansas
in the past:
'The sad news from Doniphan county
will be read with pain by tbo great number
of warm friends and admirers of the late
Nathan Price, all over the State, who. we
arc sure, will remember him at his best and
always think of him with tender regret.
The writer of this especially feels it incum
bent upon him to testify a debt of grati
tude he owes Judge Price for the help and
encouragement be received from him at the
outset of his professional career. Nathan
Price was a man of Wcbsterian mould. He
was endowed with a great, active brain,
backed by a warm, brave and generous
heart. He did not fear the face of man.
He would go any length for his Ir lends, and
a was shown on a memorable oecaaion, he
would stand alone lu their defense when
everyoue else bad deserted them. His very
virtues of heart and mind were the pars-nta
of his only fault, and that fault Injured on
ly himself. We, who remember him In bis
intellectual prime, who have beard bim
with a masterly clearness, conciseness and
force arguing abstruse questions of taw to
the court, can only regret the eclipse of bis
faculties, but shall not forget their exis
tence, nor cease to recall with admiration
and ..flection their possessor. Judge Price
was not a tralced lawyer, lie took to the
profession late in life aad without aay
systematic preperatioB for tbe bar. Bad

THE SENATORIAL SQUABBLE.
State Senator Long said to a reporter that
there will be some v ery strong combinations
formed to defeat John J. Ingalls for a re
election to the United States Senate one
year from next wiuter. He thinks the op-,
position candidates will be John A. Ander-
son, Judge A. II. Horton, Major Ben Slnip
son, ami possiuiy ome aeuaior ii. ... alas...
We quote from ihe interview wun senaior
"Well, who do you predict ha Ihe pole
in tnc racer
In my opinion Ingalls starta out with the
lead, and Is three or four laps ahead, but
you remember what a close call he had tbe
last time. That fight will not lie a circum-
stance to tbe one now approaching. No
such man as Ingalls can last long n a
lie servant in Kansas."

AlsECMTES T TH MARSHALL
Here I mud Kit story, which 1 believe
to be true, for it 1- so characteristic of Tern
Marshall. Mr. Clay waa to atMre tha
people of Lexington ou a specified day aad
Marshall had promised the Democrat to
answer bim. Tuey all aneinbled in full cx
pectation of baviug rare sport- "When Mr.!11? r
Clay finished bia speech, in-lead of reply
log to it Marshall walked away froelthe
crowd smoking a cigar. Several Democrat
followed him and asked the reason he bad
not compiled with hl proaiir. Looking
them square in tbe face he ald :
Did you hear Mr Clay .pen h "
"What did sou think or it r"
"U'e thought It a Very Hoe speech."
"You did, ha ! Well, suppose I had gut
up there and gaffed him and he bad come
back at me, what du you think it would
bave been then?"
It cannot be gainsaid thst be Wat vain ol
hi intellectual gifts. A Krntiickfan gave
me this evidence ol that fact: Marshall,
after making a great i-rt-u at Frankfort in
a law case, took a walk with a friend, aud
asked him what he thought of II. Ill
friend, kuowing that he waalUblugfora
compliment, replied with a smile: "Well.
I think it was pretty passable '
"Now, you know better," said Marshall.
"You know that it was one of the best
speeches you ever beard la your life; I
wrote that speech thirteen year ago, and
thi Is the first time that I ever had aa op
portunity of delivering ll."
