All ni ilhcappod my princess creeps into her , tho' gone but a minute, I know she is And, sleeping, Aud I foa.it on the blumber smiles lighting While I sit by' the window, my restful watch keeping; Like a robin wing-weary my bird is a-sleep- And I sit in content, my restful watch keep ing.

Cape Coats Again. New York Sun. "Men are wearing capes on their over coats again, " said a Broadway tailor re cently, as he leaned against his counter and delved into the inner recesses of his mouth with a toothpick, "and they recail to old New Yorkers the popularity of the cape, and its sudden disappearance, after the murder of a young woman up-town by a young man named Itobinson. "Many years ago any man with any pretensions to style wore a cape. The garments were of various colors, often running t o bright plaids, and they were worn quite long. A tall man wrapped up in one of these capes and walking along in thft flark looked like a bandit. Thev were very convenient, particularly when a man went to. the the atre in dress clothes. He had only to Blip his cloak over his shoulders when running out between the acts, which was vastly easier than struggling into an over coat, and saved many a man from catch ing many a cold. W hen the great Robin son murder trial came on, however, the testimony played largely on a cape which was worn by a mysterious man, who was subsequently identified as Robinson. They then became known as 'Robinson capes,' and, by George, sir, they were driven out of the streets before the season was over. Until now they have neve reappeared. " "What is the fashionable cape to-day?" "It i3 a part of the top coat and hangs very close to the shoulders. It is never worn separate from the coat, and it will not do on a Newmarket A sack coat is the only proper form of coat, and when a Newmarket is topped with a eve the effect iz anything but fashionable. n Gardens In Germany Hanover Cor. Boston Transcript. We have some pleasant gardens in Han over, but they are now closed for the winter months. How we all regretted the day when Tivoli shut its gates, not to open them till the warm spring comes again! What happy afternoons and even ing we have idled away here under the trees, listening to the music of the fine military band! Here we came with our work or books and sat for hours dreaming and reading. How quiet and peaceful it always is! Even the little children seem to feel the influence of the place. Where in America would it be so? Where would it not be so in Germany. All classes come to these gardens, where they quietly drink their glass of beer or coftee. It is quite the fashion to give a coffee party in the garden instead of at home, and one often sees a merry party of " ladie3 sitting together drinking coffee and working away at their knitting or crochet Sometimes the programme for the even ing concert is so tempting that we order our supper here also, antl remain till the end, which is at 10 o'clock rather late for German hours and everybody goes quietly home. A Very Odd "Wedding. Boston Herald. - A very odd Amlsh wedding took place In the Conestoga valley, hear Morgan town, says a Reading, Pa., dispatch. Some three hundred people attended. John S. Mast and Miss Stennie Zook, children of very wealthy Amish farmers were the contracting parties. The plain ceremony of joining hands took place in the meeting-house, after which a lengthy nrrtfpjisinn nroceeded to the house, where a banquet took place. A feature of the feast was as follows: A young man se lected his sweetheart, and both went to the table. This action was followed by similar selections, until all the younger couples had gone in. A nymn was sun, when feast In 2 for ten minutes followe Then all arose, each couple holding a book between them, and another hymn fonotintr thfin continued another ten minutes, when there was more singing as Del ore. in ims wav uw itaiiYiuoa were kept up for six hours. AVolves and Men. Baron Kestroi-1 When two wolves meet in the woods neither of them has the slightest doubt as to what kind of animal the other is; but two men never meet in the forest without each one suspecting the other of rung a robber. BIRD3 FOR THE MILLINERS. The Kind Most In Use Where They Come from Tropical Rarities. New York Sun. A great heap of wide-spread antlers la the window, with a simple black and white sign above them which reads, " Taxidermist, " is the only street display of a down-town place of business in New York, where hundreds of thousands of bird3 have been flayed and their skins dressed for the ornamenting of hats and bonnets, and hundreds of hides of all sorts of animals, from a mouse to a cinna mon bear or an African tiger, have been mounted for the U3e of dealers in furs and the decoration of parlors and studies. The chief part of the business is the pre paration of birds for milliners. " What kind of birds do you use most? " "The common sorts red-winged black birds, reed birds, snipes, turtle doves, orioles, yellow birds, thrushes. Any small bird can be used. We buy them of men who make a business of supplying us. Most of the birds we handle are from New Jersey, but a good many come from Long Island, aud we receive some from the west and south. A few are imported. " "What do you pay for thum?" "That depends on the fashions entirely. Two years ago the demands of the milli ners was for red wings and yellow birds. We paid from 25 to 35 cents apiece, and at . one time vre had to pay as high as 47 cents apiece for a lot. Last year we got all we wanted at from 7 to 8 cents each. "Where do all these fancy birds that look like pictures of tropical rarities come from?" " AU from Jersey. By inserting a snipe's bill in the place of the bill of a crow blackbird, and then combining parts of the skin of other common birds, we pro duce a monstrosity, but if the colors are well matched the result is attractive to the common eye, however grotesque it may appear to one who knows all about the ap pearance of birds. It is not uncommon to see in the Grand street windows hats that have half a dozen bird heads project ing from one mass of feathers that might be the breast of a swan or the pickings from a second-hand pillow. The wings that adorn some hats are about as much like wings as a stovepipe is like a lead pen cil. But those queer tastes are the making ing of our business. The portions of the bird's skin which are cut away when mounting a bird naturally for a hat can all be used up in wings by gluing them on a model What Killed Dickens. Chicago Tribune. Mr. Dolby's book on Dickens as a lecturer confirms the opinion that Dickens brought on his death by overwork and over-excitement According to Mr. Dolby, the reading of the murder scene in "Oliver twist" by Dickens brought up the reader's pulse from its normal 72 to 118 " On these occasions he would have to be supported to his retiring-room and laid on a sofa for fully ten minutes Deiore ne . - . ..1 A? coma speaK a rational or consecutive sentence. " Yet this reading he gave very frequently. How to Spoil a Cigar. Chicago News. "I say, George, what do you pay for these cigars?" "Fifty dollars a thousand. n "Splendid cigar, George. Smokes beautifully. Very fragrant But $50 is a good deal of money to pay for cigars. " " Why, that s only o cents apiece. " "Ah, that's so. Was thinking it was 50 cents apiece. I thought it was a dreadful price for such a miserable roll of dried cabbage. I don't see how you can smoke the things. " Better Than Bees. Norristown Herald. An agricultural paper informs its readers that "A hive of bees placed in the orchards will increase the crop of apples, as the pollen rubbed off the bodies of the bees fertilizes thousands of blossoms which might otherwise be barren. "We can assure our farmer friend, however, that one cross dog placed in the orchard will increase the apple-crop 50 per cent more than two hives of Dees. A cross aog will "go right to the spot" quicker than the pollen. Self- Correction. Chicago Times. Little boy has been swearing, and mamma, to punish him, washed thor oughly the inside of his mouth with soap: suds, "to," as she explains to him, "clean away the naughty words. A few days later, while passing the bath-room, she sees the yonngster with hi3 face one mass of suds, and his mouth so full that she barely understands his SDlutterinsr exclamations. "Getting them all out, mamma. Swore A Theological Point. Exchange. Thn students of a western theoloeical seminary are reported to have discussed thp nnpstfnn whether.
