Besides his live or six consummate
works, which by universal consent are

said that Goethe's songs are the best
in the world. He is the greatest ol

and in the number and value of hi'

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

past is of value only as it can make

I must make good today. —Charles
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.

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

he earth would pass at a distance of
~0 miles from the center. And one of
he remarkable facts about this mag
etic axis of the earth is that it keeps

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
"As I teach it." replied the young
teacher, "no subject could be more

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
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

labor is employed to a great extent in
making the crystals, and the wages
paid are very small.

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. —

Stevenson's Whimsical Attire.
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

in IS7S to buy him a new hat, in com
pany with Mr. Lang, the thing then
upon his head having lost the sem

stork species, will swallow a hare or
