The weary traveler counts the miles That stretch between him and his home. And each one passed, he softly smiles At thought ofwelcome rest to come. The sailor casts a longing look To where the wished-for haven lies, And scarce the brief delay can brook, Till when its shores shall greet his eyes. Impatiently the soldiers wait The time the campaign's toil shall end, When peace shall take the place of hate, And every foe become a friend. The prisoner counts the tardy hours, And scores them on his dungeon wall, And dreams of home begirt with flowers When freed at last from captive thrall. So does the traveler o'er life's sands Press onward toward his heavenly home, That city builded without hands, Among whose mansions is his own. Sweet memories of loved ones there Give to his flagging feet new strength! Though long the heavy cross he bears 'Twill lie at Jesus' feet at le.gth. The sailor on life's troubled sea, Beset by storm and tempest-tossed, Peers through the mist if he may see Bow far or near the friendly coast. He longs to anchor safe at last In quiet haven of repose, Where free from every stormy blast, He may in peace his voyage close. QUIEN SABE. -The new incumbent of the chair of Latin at Yale college, Professor Tracy Peck, wants the Roman system of pronouncing Latin adopted there, and it will probably be done, begining with the next class. -Bands of music are forbidden to play on most bridges of the world. A constant suc cession of sound waves, especially such as come from the playing of a band will excite the wires eo vibration. At first, the vibra tions are very slight, but they will increase as the sound waves continue to come. -A case of poisoning by pressed corned beef is reported from Colorado Springs, Mr. and Mr. . H. H. Knight and Mrs. Mary Freeman and son being the victims. They were excursionists from Denver, and had the corned beef in their commissary supplies. At last accounts they were recovering. -The Harvard students, having decided to rival the success of the Oxford students in producing a Grek play, looked about for some one who would take the leading part, and finally found an excellent man in Mr. Riddle, who has undertaken to learn seven hundred lines of Sophocles, "(Edipus Tyran nus" before next May. The remaining characters will be taken by students. -An effort will be made next winter to in duce congress to establish a zoological gar don in Washington. Officers of the Smith sonion institute and of the National museum say that they are in daily receipt of offers from the scientific bodies with which they correspond and exchange, and from public spirited owners of rare animals, for which at present they have no accommodation. -Prof. Oldberg, of Waohingtonm, recom mends various changes in the pharmaceuti cal nomenclature, which are vigorously op posed by the druggists, who don't propose to be swindled out of their godlike prerogative of charging extra for their Latin, and putting down five cents worth of potash as ten cents worth of potassa purs, misc. nihil, ed id est omnes, dissolved in aqua, fifteen cents extra. -It has been learned that the common milk-weedwhich is found in almost every part of the United States, and which has heretofore been considered only a cumberer of the ground, may be put to many valuable uses. From its floss a fabric resembling Irish poplin has been made; the seeds yield afine oil; its gum can be used in place of India rubber, while the young shoots may be used in the spring instead af asparagus, which they very much resemble. -The annual report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1880, shows that on that date the postal service was in operation on 1, 118 railroad routes, aggregating 85,320 miles in:length, at a annmatl cost for transports :tion alone of $10,498,986.

This was $919,619 in excess of the expenditures for the same branch of service in the preceding year, and was $1,421,449 greater than til es~timate submitted by the department to congress in December, 1878. --A very curious invention has just found birth in the brain of a German scientist. He has obtained a chemical composition by means of which a mirror inage may be fixed mand sold as a photograph. With this com position the mirror surface is painted, and the back part of it receives a coating of oil. The mirror thus prepared is held before the person to be photgraiphed. Theoil coating evaporates andt the likeness ofthe person re malns in natural coirs on the lights surface The image so fixed is brought i.nto a bath, nd is exposed for half an hour in the sunlight when it i iready for delivery. -Jdoctor SydneyRinger calls the attention of the medical profession to the value of glycerite as a remedy in flatlence, acidity of the stomach and pyresis.

The man, seeing thie fino carri~ge and horses and the servant's livery and ai.' the. gay company, thought he wa bi1g fool d. "As if you did not know!" he said, i.h a big grin.

"Give him twenty francs ohi tc u said the queen to one of he:r escort, who, go ing after the countrymen, s ad: "Here, my man, is a little prose: fro g the Queen of Italy, who thanks you."

"Then there's the twenty franc thou gaxv est me yesterday. I thank thee. but I want no money." And he went away, crying ,nd smiling flke a child. The queen has adn ,ed the two little ones, and they are in an institution un der her spe cial patronage. The Co~r~lor an eLarsinga of emn The color of horses, being derived from their bodily covering, in neceagarily very varied. Numerous conjecturea have been entertained as to what was the original colo: of this animal; but the inquiry has not been attended with success, for the horse is secn to perform all hi~ functions under any tin4, though fancy, and perhaps experience, has appropriated particlar eobnstitutional prop erties and mental qualities to some huca more than others. The various colors of horses wouUd seem to be truly original and inher ent; for such of those who have, from a state of domestication, been suffered again to run wild, have retained the color-they carried with them, athough form has altered, and submitted to the agencies of climate. Neither have the horses of different countries, ac cording to the accounts ot travelers, exhibited any individual characteristic hue. The horses of the East are not darker than those of the North; on the contrary, we have white Arabians, and ws prpeure the darkest breeds from th&N&th of Europe, while' in Russia bright bay is as common a color as any other. Geographical distribution is not however, wholly without its influence on the hair; for our heavy breeds, drawn from the northern parts of Europe, are very frequent ly black; but full-blood black horse is sel dom met with. Age has, likewise, power~ful effect on the tinting of the hair.
