Fleetwood House, once the residence of General Fleetwood and j his wife, who was Bridget, the daugh-! ter of Oliver Cromwell. This sight is to the right of the avenue, and there one j summer day, among older and plainer j tombstones than those of the Abney, j or opposite, side, I saw men mowing ; the long grass and presently came up- on a mound inclosed with an iron rail, j The mound itself was covered with i ivy, but trimmed so that oue could i read on a red granite slab the words, 'This mound was a favorite retirement of the late Isaac Watts, D. D." Tra- j dition says he loved that mound be-; cause from it he could see the open country. It is now hemmed in by houses, but the mound is still solitary. Another tradition tells of a rumor cur rent soon after Cromwell's death to the effect that the Protector's bodv ; wa not in the coffin that was buried ! with regal pomp in the abbey, but had ' been secretly brought down to his ; daughter's houe and laid to rest where now is the mound Christian World. How Hf? Knm. There is a very forgetful girl in Den ver, living up on Washington street. Fearing a young man who called on her last week would stay too long she set the clock in the parlor half an hour ahead. She was tired, having been out horseback riding that day, and wanted to get to bed early. The scheme worked. But then she forgot to turn the clock back and. having numerous young ri:en friends, she also very care lessly forgot which one it was. Last night the The clock young man called again, was still fast and he no- 1 iced It. "That clock is wrong, isn't it?" he asked. "Yes," she replied. "I set it ahead so a fellow who called Wednesday night would zo home in time to let me get some sleep.' -The clock fooled him all right," Bald the caller quietly. 'How do you know?" she asked. Le youns man sxnilea a sickly smile. -I called Wednesday night." The ?irl couched "We're bnvinsr po mnch trouble in getting a hired girl." she said. "Doe j yocr mother eyer have difficulty secur- j ia good help?' Dtnyer Fast. LIVING ON AN ACRE. How It Would Help the Man of ram- ; ily and Little .Money. A family, .with a modest house sur rounded by ah acre of good soil, even' where the work has to Ikj performed by members of the family who are oc cupied during the long h,--s of the day at various occupations, will pro duce almost everything used in the family. An acre of ground thoroughly well cultivated, with a little cbvkeu jard as an adjunct, will reduce in a very material way the expenses of the family. Of course acre lots are impossible in side of the city limits or even very close to the city limits. The pervn set-king so large a lot must g. to a considerable distance from the busi ness center, but the extension of liec tric lines enables even working people to live at a considerable distance from their place of employment. A ma:i who earns f2.50 to twice that sum a day and who has a family consisting of a number of children often linds some difficulty in bringing them up properly and giving them the kind of an e nida tion he would wish. Such an invest- , ment as this, saving rent of say ,2o a month and yielding eggs and all kinds of vegetables as well ns considerable of the fruit that gees to make up t!.- daily ration of each member of t!:e family, will make his struggle i:i life much lighter. A man who has su-.-b a stake in the country will be in every way a better citizen than the one who spends Ins week's earnings as soon as they come Into his hand, if not a week before they are earned. Varied occupation exceeds all other processes in drawing out whatever of ability a man possesses. Here lies the advantage to the community one su perior to all economic gain of the sub urban acre lot for the home of the city wage earner. The cultivation of that acre in alternation with his other em ployment will bring him intellectual and spiritual enlargement, while it gives him a healthier body and whole some surroundings in which to bring up his family. Maxwell's Talisman. THE GROWTH OF TROUT. Affe, Food and Temperature Seem to Have No Bearing on Size. The Salvelinus fontinalis, which is currently but inaccurately called brook trout, wa3 supposed for many years to be a small hb. Agassiz was largely instrumental in exploding this fallacy. It is not an uncommon thing for an angler with ordinary luck to get a six or seven pound trout of this variety. It Is known that a trout may grow to weigh eleven or twelve pounds. There is, however, gveat difficulty in accounting for its variation in size. In northeastern Canada there are large streams and lakes in which only finge rlings have ever been found. In the Immediate vicinity of such waters three and four pound trout are quite common and seven and eight pounders are not phenomenal. In all these wa ters Crustacea do not abound; there are no small fish of any kind except small trout. All the fish are pure fly feeders. At some places, it is true, frogs abound, but taken as a whole the difference in food supply is not an adequate ex planation for the difference in growth. There is no substantial difference in the waters as to temperature, size, origin and course. Climatic conditions are the same. The small trout taken to virgin lakes in which there are no fish have sometimes grown to a great size, have sometimes remained small and sometimes have not thriven. The anglers who haunt these wters have not yet found a satisfactory explana tion of this peculiar condition of things. It is one of the mysteries which lends fascination to the art. "You never can tell what Is going to happen when you go fishing." St. Taul Dispatch. Long: Words or Short Which shall we prefer in speech and writing? Almost everybody will vote for the short word, and almost every body will be voting for the best can didate. The short words are usually the strong words. They make up in muscle and liveliness what they lack in size, says the Manchester Union. And they are readily in the eyes of men who have thoughts that they wish tj lodge in other minds. A man who should run out into the street and yell 'Conflagration! Conflagration: Con flagration!" when his house was burn ing would be thought to be making a jest of the affair. And so in all mat ters where ideas. are to be handed out quickly ami clearly the short word has first choice. CocVflKhtiiiK Anions the Greek. The sport of cockrighting seems to have originated with Them'stocles of Greece. When he was leading an army against the Fersians he noted two cocks in a desperate battle. To stim ulate the courage of his soldiers he pointed out the bravery of birds, aad. having won his battle with the Fer sians, he ordered that an annual cock fight should be held to celebrate his victory. In England the records show that the first cockfight took place in Wliat He Meant. "Don't forget to visit tho mystery show while you are in Europe."

The nffect Demosthenes Attained lr 31isprn;uneii2K His Words The Trap Into Which the Eloquent Cnr ran llrev a Witness. Oue wonders of Demosthenes wheth- J or Le ever in after years resumed of s.d purpose that habit of stammering ; which he had taken such heroic means j to eradicate. A stammer is a most ef- I f ,'ctive trick sometimes, and we know j taat Aiciluades found his lisp by no; mean-; the least useful of his many ' wiuuing ways. The trick iu oratory j tvuibines both the conventional inean- i::gs of t!: word, habit, sometimes It is sometimes a will, sometimes both. Addison tells a capital story of a trick iu forensic "oratory. At Westmin ster hrdl "there was a counselor who ne er pleaded without a piece of pack tareavi in Lis hand, which tie used to twist about a thumb or ringer all the while In was speaking. The wags of t!io-,e days called it "the thread of his discourse. for be was not aide to utter a word without it." as a foolish client proved once to his own cost, for he stole the thread, and his advocate came to litter grief. Another clever sort of trick, the "tak- ln'j; dud-'i1 the verua iineresthi! natural1.;,- ." to borrow a phrase from ular, is the more generally ;. The classic instance which occurs to every one is Burke's famous '"dagger scene" in the hoP.se of commons when he empha sized his peroraliou regarding the reign of terror in France by dramatic ally throwing a dagger on the floor of the house as an example of the meth ods of the apostles of liberty, equality and fraternity. One of the tricks credited to Sheri dan was very much ou the lines of a famous "score" of classic times. A member whose admiration for the bril liant statesman was not tempered wifh discretion greatly annoyed Sheridan by continually ejaculating, "Hear, hear!" without rhyme or reason. Sher idan determined to give him a lesson. At tlti close of one of his speeches, de nunciatory of some individual, he used the words, "Where shall we find a more foolish knave or a more knavish fool than he?" "Hear, hoar!" came as usual from the troublesome enthusiast. Sheridan boed, thanked him for so obligingly supplying the required information and resumed bis seat. And long centuries before Demfcs thor.es, inveighing against an opponent who' was suspected of receiving subsi dies from the court of Persia, passion ately asked the crowded audience, "Is ho not Misthotos a hireling?" But as thou-h inadvertently he mispronounced the words so obviously that the audi ence shouted out corrections from all points "Mlsthotos! Misthotos!" the ef fect of which was to make the citizens themselves apply the opprobrious epi thet. Not very dissimilar in character is oue of the many tricks attributed to Curran. He was engaged on a case wherein the principal witness on the other side was a gentleman of position whose evidence, if accepted, would be conclusive. In his opening speech Cur ran inveighed with all the bitterness and eloquence in his power against the chief witness for the other side, but without actually mentioning his name. When the time came for the witness a Mr. Leger to be sworn Cur ran interposed in the blandest way that this was surely a needless formal ity. Mr. Leger's character was such that he felt ure the jury would accept his simple assertion. The unfortunate man fell into the trap. "I am glad, Mr. Curran. you have a better opinion of me now than when you first spoke." "Yon adn.it, then, sir, that, though I named no names, you recognized my description as applying to yourself?" Another of Cumin's oratorical tricks is mt unlike oue Sheridan perpetrated 0:1 the house. In this case the last f peaker, it v. ill be remembered, had wound up his speech with a classical quotation, which, to judge from the plar.diis it received, made a most ef fecrive point. Sheridan in his reply re- greitod the honorable member had not completed the quotation. He would do so himself, and the house would then see how fatal to the contention of the honorable member was the authority he had cited, whereupon Sheridan with rangnUlceut dramatic effect recited a sonorou 5 piece of gibberish! And the Lou- e applauded vigorously Cmv m's trick was at the expense of a pr 'tenia turally stupid jury. The judge happened to be a consummate cLKsieai H-holar and, knowing Curran to be the same, was naturally astound ed on Leering him quote a piece of Lat in a - .-. mlng from the Phantasmagoria of the historian Ilesiod! "You mean L'tt'ii poet, Mr. Curran. Ilesiod was a Greek, a poet and not a historian, and I doubt whether he ever wrote a work called the Phantasmagoria. The lines are Juvenal's." "Ilesiod, my lord, I as sure yon. and Greek, not Latin." "You must be out of your senses, Mr. Cur ran. or think I am out of mine. The line are Latin." "Well, my lord, I can uui.v mil.'si uiai we leave 11 us an is sue for the jury, and I'll be bound they will find it Greek." The trick was perfectly effectual. London Globe.
