I have seen her limpid eyes, Large with gradual laughter rl(* Through wild roses' nettles. Like twin blossoms grow and starts Then the hateful, envious air Whisked them Into petals.

A Troublesome Name In Chicago. The many variations as to the pronun ciation of the name Goethe street cause some queer misunderstandings and lu dicrous situations. A policeman who was standing on the corner of Wells street and Chicago avenue was asked if he knew where a man lived. "Shure, an he's afther livin on Goatee sthreet," lie replied. "Where?" "Goatee sthreet." "How do you spell it?" "Pfwhy, I s'pose like g-o-a-t-y, same as a goat." But the man was still in the dark, so he stepped into a comer drug store and asked the question he hud put to the po liceman. "Mr. lives 011 Geety street." "Where is that place?" "Just eleven blocks north of here." A Wells street car soon covered the eleven blocks and Goethe street was reached. After the interview had been attended to a number of inquiries were made of various persons in regard to the name of the street, eliciting at least a dozen different pronunciations.—Chi cago Mail. It Was Fatal. "I'm afraid of restaurants and soda fountains," she had said in the tirst of their acquaintance, and it led him to offer himself at once, for he felt that he could afford to wed such a girl. But he was disappointed. She steered him right into the light refreshment parlor, and the corner drug store ab sorbed all his nickels and the small payinent-down cottage home vanished into thin air. One day, goaded to desperation by the absorption of his last nickel, he said to her: "1 thought you told me you were afraid of summer restaurants and soda palaces?" "1 am," she said sweetly "den't ice cream whenever 1 come near one?" He will not recover.—Detroit Free Press. Keeping Warm. An active but uot very robust city boy was sent by his parents away up into the north woods a few days ago for the avowed purpose, of building up his health. He was cautioned by his father and by the family doctor to keep warm at night, the avoidance of chills being especially desirable in his case. The other day a letter came from the boy. He told his parents that he was "feeling well, eating like a horse, and having a bully time." He also said: "And I keep as warm as toast nights. The other night 1 went to bed with all my clothes on. I wore two shirts, three pairs of trousers, two coats, my shoes and overshoes and a cap."—New York Times. Cause uf a National Trait. It is a matter of common observation that Hebrews as a rule are more than ordiuarily devoted to their families, and their home life is beautiful in many ways. As everything has a cause, the most plausible one in this regard appears to me to be the severe persecutions to which that race has been subjected for centuries, compelling clannishness and affording them their greatest happiness at home. Persistent influences acting through numberless generations would surely institute a racial peculiarity such as this.—S. V. Clevenger in Science. Didn't Like Worry. Mrs. Minks—Don't you wish you could get money by simply drawing a check, the way your husband does? Mrs. Winks—Indeed 1 don't. If 1 drew the checks myself, I'd have to worry over the balances. I'd rather he'd draw them.—New York Weekly. A young man named M. W. Smith arrived at the mining (own of Cripple Creek, Colo., with thirty-three dollars in his pocket. He commenced peddling peanuts and popcorn and in sixty days cleared $3,000. a, Kenan'* Regard for Animals. M. Renan has known any number of instances of superior sagacity in brood hens. He felt that he did not go too far in regarding cats and dogs that he had known as humble relatives. When a child he had for a neighbor a dog that, jittlilring the Friday's dinner of fish and potatoes, used regularly on Thursday to go looking about for bones to hide them for his meals next day. How did he know that Thursday preceded Fridiiy? Another dog associated Sunday with personal cleanliness, and used as regu larly as it came around to go and take a bath, unless the weather was very cold, when he gave himself absolution. Hi* name wiw Jocko.—London Truth. A Common ilaladjr. "1 came into a little money a few months ago," said the sad man, "and as I had been working for others all my life 1 thought I would go into business for myself. I took a look at about fifty stores that were advertised for sale, and by the time 1 got through investigating I knew it all and flattered myself that the man wasn't living who could get the better of me. Nearly all the places offered for sale had a run down look about them that told only too plainly why their owners were anxious to get out of business. On the other hand, some of the stores had that unmistakable evidence of newness about them that 1 was quick ty see that they were merely got up to sell by sharpers and had no es tablished trade at all. "At last 1 bought out a cigar store. It was sold on account of sickness, and no one could doubt the owner's word who saw him. He was the sickest look ing man 1 ever saw, and 1 didn't ques tion him very closely because 1 felt that a man who was as near dead as he was wouldn't be apt to lie. But I couldn't have bought a worse business if had tried. During the three months I was there 1 don't think there was a single day when 1 didn't smoke more cigars myself than I sold. At last the man next door asked mo how I was making out, and when 1 told him he wanted to know what excuse the other man had given for selling. 'It was on account of sickness,' 1 said. 'Did he tell you how he got sick?1 the man asked. 'No,' 1 replied. 'Well.' he rejoined in a low and sym pathetic voice, 'the poor fellow got sick trying to make the place pay.'"—New York Evening Sun. Why Rats Are Dangerous Passengers. A most remarkable instance of the mischief which the rat is capable of do ing came to light during the proceedings of a naval court of inquiry held in Au gust, 1875. for the purpose of investigat ing the cause of the los3 of the bark Commodore of Hartlepool. The vessel, which was burned at sea, had been loaded with a cargo of timber, and the tire broke out in the hold in a most mys terious manner. It was eventually proved, on the evidence of the entire crew*that beyond a shadow of doubt the outbreak was originated by a rat carrying off alighted candle, which had stood in the forecastle and was presently missed by the sailors, and dropping it among the dry and resinous pine stowed below. The Shipping Gazette, in commenting upon this extraordinary case at the time, and speaking of the danger generally of rats on shipboard, said that "they have caused the foundering of many ships by gnawing holes in the planking or so eat ing away the inner sides of the wood as to leave very little for the straining of the hull to do in completing the aper ture they have been known to nibble the timber at the waterways until the wood was so thin as to admit rainwater through it they will attack the bungs of casks and create leakage find out the soft parts of the knees or lining, and make a passage for themselves from one part to another." So fully has the dan ger of this now come to be recognized that such contingencies are generally provided for in the insurance of wooden built ships.—Chambers' Journal. Glaciers in Idaho. An immense glacial field has been dis covered in the unexplored region of cen tral Idaho by F. B. Schermerhom, geol ogist and mineralogist. Under the date of Aug. 8 he Writes as follows:* "As I came over the divide into Big Creek 1 saw away to the west, among the high mountains, what appeared to be a glacier. Inquiry at Big Creek de veloped the fact that though two of the men in camp had lived there several years they had never been able to get up to that snow. They also told me many had tried it and failed. All had tried to take horses with them. 1 deter mined to go on foot. "As 1 advanced the signs of the white man decreased until they disappeared altogether. The country through which I made my way was the wildest and roughest of any through which 1 ever traveled in point of grandeur and pic turesque beauty. The view from the peaks rivals anything in mountain scen ery in the United States. "Beneath the glacial field 1 found a series of glacial lakes. The glacial fields are quite extensive. They probably cover nearly as great an area, though not so thick, as the great glacial fields of the Alps. 1 examined sixteen termi nal moraines. Of this number eleven were receding, four stationary and only one advancing. None that 1 saw ex tended more than 2,000 feet below the snow line." The writer says that the glaciers are located about thirty-five miles Bouth west of Shoup, amid a number of very high peaks that are not down on the maps.—Boise Cor. San Francisco Chron icle. The Jap Swallowed the Snake. A wonderful story reaches us from Japan of a snake swallower who lias outdone all forerunners in the art. One called Saito Tora-no-suke was one day breaking up some land, when he came upon a snake three feet long. Seizing it in his hands he called out to his com panions that if they would give him four dollars he would swallow the snake. Although dollars are scarce in Japan it is stated that the money was at once subscribed, the onlookers uot believing that the bet would be won. But, true to his word, Saito put the bead of the creature into his mouth and swallowed the whole three feet of snake without difficulty. The punishment of his temerity was swift and fell. While his companions were gazing at him, speechless with horror and astonishment, he was seen to change color and fall to the ground in great pain, and he died in few minutes.—St. James Budget. Shepherd Dogs Fight Wolves, Mandan Pioneer: Rev. J. R. Decksrd tells the following wolf story and vouches for its truth: He says that his sister-in law, Mrs. C. T. McDonald, who livt-s eight .miles southeast of Bismarck, had an interesting experience a few days ago with a pack of wolves that attaoked her flock of sheep. Just after the sun had set, she went to drive the sheefi into their corral, taking her three-year-old child and two sheep dogs with her. Her hus band was away hauling hay. As she neared her sheep she noticed three large wolves attacking a cow that was pick eted, As she approached, they left the cow and went towards the sheep. The dogs attaoked the wolves, the child fainted in the mother's arms, the sheep circled around in terror, and Mrs. Mc Donald made strenuous efforts to drive the frightened flock towards the corral. The dogs, although overmatched in weight and size by the wolves, kept the invaders so busy that they had but little time to devote to (he sheep or to Mrs. McDonald, and presently the entire flock was in the corral, and Mrs. MoDonald made for the house. When the dogs finished their work upon their assailants, both dogs and wolves were sorry speci mens of the canine race. The region south of Bismarck is largely infested with wolves that make evening and early morning raids upon any scattering sheep that may be within reach. A Cholera Scare. A reported outbreak of cholera at Helmetta, N. J., created much excite ment in that vicinity. Investigation showed that the disease was not cholera but a violent dysentery, whioh is almost as severe and dangerous as cholera.

It is certainly one of the best things ever made." For sale by the City Drug store. Reduced Rates.

August Flower" ii There is a gentle* Dyspepsia, man at Malden-on the- Hudson, N. Y., named Captain A. G. Pareis, who has written us a letter in which it is evident that he has made up his mind concerning some things, and this is what he says: I have used your preparation called August Flower in my family for seven or eight years. It is con stantly in my house, and we consider it the best remedy for Indigestion, and Constipation we Indigestion, have ever used or known. My wife is troubled with Dyspepsia, and at times suffers very much after eating. The August Flower, however, re lieves the difficulty. My wife fre quently says to me when I am going to town, 'We are out Constipation of August Flower, and I think you had better get another bottle.' I am also troubled with Indigestion, and when ever I am, I take one or two tea spoonfuls before eating, for a day or two. and all trouble is removed." 9 The Great Question W. SI, LLOYD, Pres't. D.
