Millie A FACE. ITopd nrus a tender daybreak in her eys. That casts n happy moniln ou hor way. Her face it is an imaeof the '.ay. As pur and suuny as tlie su:nnir bfcivs: And when she smiles a halo round her lies, Whose liht seems born of heaven's mott holy ray. net are sweet as dainty flowers in May, Yet wear a thought fulness that makes thetu w ise. Oh, shining face! GckI bless the everywhere; A little sim by day, by night a star, To bring bright cheer whero ioin and sorww are. Goxl keep thy pentlo forehead free from care. Thine eyes keep ever from the mist of teurs. To smile a LaMin sunshine on thy years. Ernest V. ShurtlelT in Boston Transcript, Highway Postal locomotive. In tho south of France the Kovernment ostal service is supplcmrntcii by tho 'wagon rxv-t" of private contractors, who employ many hundred horses in conveying: nntall arceU from town to town, even along the railway lines. This business has leconio po extensive that several road locomotives havo been or dered for it, and are proving very satis factorj'. Two of these machines aro running Itetween towns seventy mile? apart, each making the trip ojie way nightly at a speed of eight miles au hour. Part of the road is very hilly, with long gradients up to as nuich as one in eleven Tho locomotive, with coal and water, weighs fifteen tons, end tho loaded wagon from seven to ten tons, making the average weight of the train twenty three tons. At 175 pounds pressure tho engines give about twelve horse power, and with fair roads use about half a ton of fuel for tha round trip of 140 miles. These engines have been running over six months without interruption. Ar kansaw Traveler. Durability of Roman Building. A proof of the remarkable durability of Roman buildings was found in the re sistance offered by the foundations of the pillars on which the bridge rested which led from the Roman settlement of Ma guntia (modern Mainz) over to the river to tho right or eastern bank of tho Rhino. There were fourteen stumpt, of pillars under the water, resting upon piles sur rounded by beds of stone to prevent un dermining by the current. Tho wood work had been destroyed to a depth of not more than an inch, or an inch and a half, and having been taken out and dried it was found unusually hard and well adapted to fine furniture. The ex pense of removing these pillars was $15, 000, or nearly f 1,100 each, on account of the great amount of time and labor that had to be spent on them. New Or leans Times-Democrat. Teak "Wood Becoming Fashionable. The teak wood is much admired and fast becoming fashionable, but it cannot be made common, as it is both expensive nnd difficult to obtain. It comes from India, or rather goes from India to Japan and China, where it is carved. The wood is light in color, but it is some times stained or dyed, and it is this kind that we generally see in this country. The open worked patterns are particu larly effective as doors and decorative mantels. There are only two direct im porters of it in New York, although it is to be had at many furniture dealers, who receive it through the French markets in small quantities. It may bo interesting to know that a small pedestal costs $G5 and a handsome carved chiffonier $1,000. New York Press "Every Day Talk." New Work for Younif Women. The very latest occupation for young women who have lecn delicately reared, but who are compelled by changes in tho mill wheel of life to earn a livelihood, is to clean bric-a-brac in tho great mansions of New York. They are called bric-a-brac cleaners, and have brushes mado expressly for their duties. Not every young woman can become expert at Iho business. It requires a delicate touch, the greatest care in handling the treas ures, and the knowledge how tastefully to arrange the dainty ornaments in a way that is most pleasicg to the owners. Tha work is refined, and just such ps a re fined young woman would like. New York Sun. Singular Use of Photography. Kosmos announces a singular adapta tion of photography. It is well known that under the microscope steel 13 found to be an agglomeration of crystals, and that upon tiie difference in these crystals the quality of the steel can be more or less determined. SI. Wedding, to make the enervation more complete, heated steel to whiteness, and as the tise of tha microscope under Buch circumstances was impossible, he photographed tho metal and subjected the negative to microscopic examination. Photographic News. Persian Trndea Organization. There are no trades' urp'or.s in Persia, but there is something which suggests it in the partial system of guilds and rp prcnticeships, although this is by no means universal, not distinctly organize-1 and formulated. For example, the mer chants or large traders of Teheran rep resent a body that has a head called the 3ralsk-i-Tojah, a man of wealth and ability, who in cases of need represents their cause before the thah.
