St Edward's chapel is the most sa cred spot in Westminster abbey, for it incloses the body of Edward the Con fessor, the first king who has any his toric claim to be called its founder.

Besides his live or six consummate works, which by universal consent are i practically above criticism, it may be said that Goethe's songs are the best in the world. He is the greatest ol all literary critics, and in subtle and abundant observation of human lift and in the number and value of hi' j wise remarks and pregnant sentence! he is one of the greatest writers of al time. Goethe may be classed as on* of the "greatest men."—New Yorl American. The~One Drawback. Most town men would like to farm if it were not for doing the farm work. —Atchison Globe.

Sundays he wears white ones; on Mondays he wears them shaded under the ankles, and on Tuesdays he has a cute little ring around them next to his shoetips. He—And the rest of the week? She— He wears high shoes.—Detroit Free Press. A Spirit of Resignation. An actor on his benefit night, having a very limited audience, when he came to the often quoted passage, " 'Tis not In mortals to command success, but we'll do more, Sempronius; we'll deserve it," heaved a deep sigh and substituted for the last line. "But we'll do more, Sem pronius; we'll do without It"—"Pic tures and the Picture Goer." THIS VERY DAY. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow may never come. I believe in to day. It is all that I possess. The past is of value only as it can make the iife of today fuller and freer. There is no assurance of tomorrow. I must make good today. —Charles Stelzle. A Summer of Haze. Europe and Asia were covered by fog during the summer of 1783. Says Gilbert White Getter 109): "The sum mer of the year 1783 was an amazing and a portentous one, * ♦ * for, be sides the alarming meteors and tre mendous thunderstorms, * * * the peculiar haze or smoky fog that pre vailed for many weeks in this island (England) and in every part of Europe and even beyond its limits was a most extraordinary appearance. The heat was intense. Calabria and part of the isle of Sicily were torn and convulsed with earthquakes." Cowper also re fers to this phenomenon in speaking of "nature, with a dim and sickly eye." A Dictionary Pillow. I once knew a woman who wrote books, a woman who was very learned in the matter of French and Latin and German and Greek. Often when her nights were dark and dreadful and sleepless, she would lie awake and think of words—what language thej were derived from and what their original meanings had been. She told me that it was a great source of pleas ure to her and kjp her from growing nervous when felt wide awaka. Often through the chill gray dawn I, too, lie awake and think about words to keep myself from the unpleasant imaginings that sometimes haunt mo in the nighttime.—Christian Herald. At ths Foot. Pater (sadly)—l don't know what to do with that boy of mine. He's been two years at the medical school and still keeps at the foot of his class. Pen-in* (promptly)— Make a chiropo dist of Mm. THE PATRIOT The Magnetic Poles. The north magnetic pole is in lati ude 70 degrees 5 minutes, and west vuigitude IH degrees 4b minutes. The outh magnetic pole is in latitude 72 egrees 30 minutes, and in east longi ude 155 degrees 30 minutes. A straight ne drawn from pole to pole through he earth would pass at a distance of ~0 miles from the center.

During a marriage ceremony in Scotland recently the bridegroom look ed extremely wretched, and he got so fidgety, standing first on one foot and then on the other, that the "best man" decided he would find out what the trouble was. "What's up. Jack?" he whispered. "Hae ye lost the ring?" "No." answered the unhappy one. with a woful look, "the ring's safe enough, but, man, I've lost ma enthu siasm."—Boston Transcript. A teachers' meeting was in progress, and it was decided that the more difficult subjects should come in the morning and those that required less application later in the day. History was last on the list, and Miss Wheeler, the young teacher, protested. "But it certainly is easier than science or mathematics," the principal insisted. "As I teach it." replied the young teacher, "no subject could be more difficult and confusing."—Lippincott's. When a Hedgehog Awakea. When a hibernating hedgehog awak' ens it rapidly warms itself up. Wheth er this is done automatically or wheth- er it is due to the awakening animal "pulling itself together" seems to be a moot point. The fact is that the animal rapidly warms itself up. The chemistry of this is a rapid combus tion of glycogen along with a small 01 moderate quantity of fat. There seems no doubt that the important fuel which so rapidly makes the fire of life burn up is glycogen; the fat is only sub sidiary. It must be noticed that in the hedgehog the awakening and the warming up are two distinct though associated processes, for the animal may be awake at a lower temperature. THE TURNING POINT. In all lives, the highest and hum blest, there is a crisis in the forma tion of character and in the bent of disposition. It comes from many sources and from some which on the surface are apparently trivial. It may be a book, a speech, a ser mon, a great misfortune or a burst of prosperity. But the result is the same —a sudden revelation to our selves of our secret purpose and a recognition of our perhaps long shadowed but now masterful con victions. A few factories in Europe make all the watch crystals used in the world. These comprise five In Lorraine, two in France, two in Switzerland, one in Al sace and one In Bohemia. The annual ouput is about 800,000 gross. Hand labor is employed to a great extent in making the crystals, and the wages paid are very small. "You must pardon me!" exclaimed the golfer. "The trouble Is that 1 have been so perplexed about naval matters that I got confused." "What's that got to do with the game?" '-You didn't hear my warning. 1 said 'Aft!' when I should have said 'Fore!' "—Washington Star. HUMAN WISDOM. Human wisdom makes as ill use of her talent when she exercises it in rescinding from the number and sweetness of those pleasures that are naturally our due as she employs it favorably and well in artificially disguising and tricking out the iHs of life to alleviate the sense of them. — Montaigne. ii Quick Growing Rice. In Siam there is under cultivation a common sort of rice which in flood times grows as much as a foot in twelve hours, so that the plant often attains a height of ten feet in its ef forts to keep its leaves above water. Telegraph Wires. A telegraph wire in the open country lasts four times as long as one in a %ity. Getting Things Shipshape. "Dearest," said the sentimental bridegroom after the wedding cere mony, "do you think that I'U prove to be a satisfactory mate?" "Oh, I guess you'll do all right," re •ponded the practical bride, "and now look me over and tell me what yot think of your captain."—Ladies' Home Journal. Take te the Woods.

Here is a picturesque gfimpse of Stevenson's whimsical as given in the "Collected Essays of Edmund Gosse:" i . "Stevenson was not without a good deal of innocent oddity in his dress. When I try to conjure op his figure I can only see a slight, lean lad in a suit of blue sea cloth, a black shirt and a wisp of yellow carpet that did duty for a necktie. This was long his at tire, i ersevered in to the anguish of his more conventional acquaintances I hare a ludicrous memory of going in IS7S to buy him a new hat, in com pany with Mr. Lang, the thing then upon his head having lost the sem blance of a hnman article of dress."

' The art of being able to make a good use of moderate abilities wins esteem and often confers more rep utation than greater real merit. — La Rochefoucauld. Successful.
