THE SWEET, SAD YEARS.
The sweet, sad years, the ran, the rain, 'i Alas, too quickly did they wane! For each some boon, some blessing borei Of smiles and tears each had its store. Its checkered lot of bliss and pain. Although it idle be and vain. Yet cannot I the wish restrain That I had held them evermore. The sweet, sad years! Like echo of an old refrain That long within the mind has lain, I keep repeating o'er and o'er, "Nothing can e'er the past restore: Nothing bring back the years again. The sweet, Mid years." —Rev. Charles D. Bell. Working Some practical facts are furnished by tho experience of the workmen engaged in tho construction of the new Central railway over the main range of moun tains in Pern. Tho line starts from Lima, in latitude 12 degs. Tho summit tunnel of this line at Galeria is at the height of 15,645 feet, or a little under the height of Mont Blanc, but it mnst be remembered that the climatic condi tions are very different and more un favorable in Peru than in Europe. Mr. E. Lane, the engineer in chief, finds that the workmen up to an altitude of 8,000 to 10,000 feet do about the same relative quantity of work as at sea level, provided they have been inured to tho height or brought up in the country. At 12,000 feet the amount of work deterio rates, and at 14,000 to 16,000 a full third lias to be deducted front the amount that the same man could perform at sea level. Mules and horses are found to do about the same efficient work proportionately as human beings up to about 17,000 feet in the district.—Nineteenth Century. Mountain Tops. Remarks About Show. Tho snow was particularly light and fluffy, and it settled on tho sidewalks like fine goose feathers. Tho janitor of a certain flat is a son of Ham, built like a Hercules. The janitor of tho next fiat is a son of Erin. The two recognize no color line, and are great friends. Before the sun they rose to clear tho sidewalks of the snow ere it should bo trampled down by pedestrians. Both were equipped with snow shovels. "By golly, Pat," shouted the herculean soft of Ham, after he had been working for a few minutes, "dis yar snow am so feadery dat shovelin it ain't no good no how. 'Minds mo of pushing fog." "Well, begorra." replied Pat. without looking up from his work, "get a fau and fan it off. New York Times. Big Salvago In Now York Uarbor. In 1889 the City of New York, on her first voyage to this port, ran ashore off Sandy Hook. A leading wrecking com pany of this city took a score of lighters down to take off her cargo so tiiat sho might be floated. A number of tugs aided in the work. Tho wrecking company put in a claim for salvage and was awarded $75,000. Including tho compensation to the tugs which worked with the wrecking com pany the total amount of salvagoawurd ed was over $100,000.—New York Even ing Sun. _ His Retort Courteous.

Except on a very few doors in the older quarters of the city, the ancient knocker ha« passed away as too noisy to keep pace with the advanced refinement of the age, and the jangling bell has taken its place. On the bell Jack's liand is as heavy as his master's, for there is no distinction between rings. The servant, fancying that the butcher's boy has come with the meat, may open the door leisurely to find that the president of the United States has called upon her master. The bell may be a deli cate electrical contrivance, with a button to be pressed or an engraved knob at the end of a wire to be pulled or any other de vice, but all anybody, be he nigh or low, can do with it is to ring it. This, viewed from a democratic point of view, is perhaps as it should be, and yet there are old Indies and genuemen in New York who sigh for the knocker of old, when they could say with the utmost confidence, "That's father's knock," or "Mother's at the door," and every one living in thehouse was recognized by a knock that was dis tinctively his or her own. These were all "double" knocks, some of them modest and some, especially those of the younger mem bers of the household, perhaps a little pre tentious. When a st range "double" knock was heard at the door, it was evident that a visitor was there and the family might make hasty preparations for the reception of company. When a "single knock sounded, only a tradesman, or a peddler, or, possibly, even a beggar, was there, so, of course, the sen ants need not hurry. But when a rapid, peremptory "Rap rap!" sounded, everybody was anxious to run to the door, for that wns the letter carrier, ortho postman, os he was then called.—New Y'ork Sun. Getting Around a Corner. A rather dilapidated but exceedingly cheerful t ramp coming down the road asked Mr. Jennings for a job. Mr. Jennings had just set his reaper preparatory to a long day's slow march up and down the big wheat field. "Yes, I've got a job. Two dollars a day and board, and it's yonrs as long as you hold it down. Can you drive?" "Can I drive? Ain't I druv four harscs to wanst fur a Dutchman in Cheecago, an Jim screechin wid n hor-r-n on the back stip of thewaggin?" "That's all right. A reaper ain't a tally ho, but I guess you'll do. You'll have to. Just keep a-goin. I'll be back inside of an hour. But say, I wish you'd save a little patch by the fence in the corner there. I want to try an experiment I read about in The Journal." "And how do I work the machine?" "You let the machine alone. It will work itself. Just yon drive straight up tothat corner, then turn and go across by tbe fence. The machine will do the cutting." The new hand drove a few yards very carefully, then halted, looked at the mys terious thing behind him and shouted to Mr. Jennings, who had already started to the rescue of his fruit trees. "And do she kape a-cuttin like this all the time I kape agoin?" ''Yes, yes; go ahead." "Well, thin, how can I save the bit in the fince corner? Whin I drive up there, she'll jist cut it down anyway, and I won't have nothing to say about it." "Why, you idiotl When you get" "Av coorse; av coorse! I was jist jokin.

The wall is here a dividing line be tween the high, rugged hills of Chinn, which tower above us on the one hand, and the great saudy plains of Mongolia on the other, with dim mountain summits beyond in the distance. Over these barren, rocky spurs and acclivities, ascending to their very summits, winding about in irregular curves and zigzags, its serried battlements clear cut against tbe sky on the topmost ridges, descending into dark gullies to ap iear again rising on the other side, the end ess Une of massive stone and brick runs on and on until lost to sight behind the farthest range. And so it goes for miles and miles, east ward to the Pecliili gulf and westward, mostly in two great, rambling lines, along the border of tbe Gobi desert and Kan-Soo, until it ends among tbe foothills of the Nan Shnn range. However we may regard it, whether as a grand conception for the de fence of oil empire, as an engineering feat or merely as a result of the persistent ai> plication of human labor, it is a stupendous work. No achievement of the present time compares with it in magnitude.—Century. A Historical Horse Race. Squire Osbaldestone's undertaking to ride 200 miles in ten hours, which he ac complished so successfully on the 5th November, 1881, is one of the most remark able feats of endurance in the saddle, and has the merit of freedom from cruelty. The squire rode his race on the Newmarket race course, chauging his horse every fourt mile. Four miles is a safe limit for such purpose, ns that splendid horseman knew. Threo mile laps could have been covered time relatively a little better, but a sound horse in fair training could do his four miles without distress in such time os mnke that distance, with the consequent reduction in the number of changes, the most suitable for tbe purpose. Mr. Osbaldestoue used sixteen horses for his task, aud rode standing in his stirrups like a jockey, while he kept his mount best speed from start to finish of its four mile heat, haring quite a "set-to" with his pacemaker at the end of each. The squire was a hard man, aud m good training, so suffered no bad effects from his exertions.— Chambers' Journal.

Two sailors on shipboard were telling about their hard fate one wet, dreary night. One said to the other, "Well, we were fools, anny way, whin we lift the ould dart."

"Y'ou've a great head upon yel" They immediately proceeded to get the cannon below. Larboard Watch went ahead with his bucket of st raw to catch the liall. Starboard Watch staid behind to touch it off. Larboard Watcli says: "Touch it off aisy, now. Don't wake the captain." "Niver moind there! llould your bucket of shtrawl" and with that the explosion took place, and Larboard Watch went sud denly overboard. The captain conies hurrying up from be low, but before lie reaches the stern of the boat a tarpaulin is thrown over ttie cannon and Starboard Watch resumes his march. The captain says, ''Starboard Watch!" "Aye, aye, sir!" "Larboard Watch!" No answer. "Larboard Watch!" Still no answer. "Starboard Watch, where is Larlxiard Watch?" "Ob, liegorra, he's gone ashore with the bucket." "Will ho be back soon?" "If lie comes back as soon ns be wint he'll be back soon!"—New York World. • Fun of ing a the bill liaising Ten Dollars.

Then he looked intensely at n cuspidor aud seemed to be exercising his thiuklug machinery at a tremendous rate. "Yes, I wish you could," lie muttered. "Poor Smith, poor fellow. It's a shame." "What is a shame, nnd what has Smith (jot to do with the ten dollars you want? Does he need it so badly?" "No, but I do. I thought I'd get it from you and I'd let Smith off. lie's a good fel low, you know—warm friend of mine—but I suppose I'll have to sock it to him." "Sock whut?" "Well, yon see, it's this way. Just cast your eye over that," and the judge handed me a legal document. It was a warrant for the arrest of Jabez B. Smith. "This is how it is," said the judge. "I'll have him arrested when I go home today and I'll fine him ten dollars. I hate to do it, though. Sure you can't let me have a ten?" "Haven't really got it." "Then Smith has got to pay the penalty of his evil doings." "Suppose Smith proves that he wasn't drunk nor disorderly?" "But he can't." "Why can he not?"

The coun try around about teems with interesting relics of the past, but the native races ob ject to their removal on superstitious grounds, and are much excited on the sub jeet. On one occasion, Mr. Cousens states in his report, he discovered a neat little slat» representing two elephants lighting. It was half buried in the mud bauk of the tank. Men were sent to dig it out, and, this done, they discovered another slab, a most interesting sculpture, representing the Hoysnla king slaying the tiger, as de scribed in Fleet's "Dynasties of the Kann reso Districts, represented that the removal of tiie slabs meant disaster to themselves. Once before when a chief removed slabs a village was burned, and a European ivho took away something died suddenly. The elephants wero left, but the king and the tiger were remove«!, anil that very night a hut next to Mr. Cousens' was destroyed by fire. Fortunately, he adds, it was the hut of n low caste family, and Mr. Cousens was therefore left untroubled.—London Tho villagers, however. News. How the Church Cured Excessive Fultli. Besides condemning magic the church further attempted to direct the excessive faith*in the supernatural into higher chan nels.

Did a man suffer from toothache or colic or pains in the back? Let him, instead of decking himself with pugan amulets, consider how much greater pain of those various kinds was endured by St. Apollonia when all her teeth were knocked out; by St. Erasmus when his bowels were torn from his living body, or by St. Lawrence when he was roasting on the gridiron.
