Whittier's Good Wishes.
A young woman once sat at a
boarding-house table beside a re
served and awkward oountry boy
whom she delighted to tease. When
she left she asked him to write in her
autograph album. The poem which
John O. Whittier wrote there, and
which has jnst been published for the <
first time, stands as a warning to
other young ladles that she who
laughs first at a seemingly dumb
oountry man may be herself laughed at
many years later. The quaint con
cluding stanza Is:
"Thy life—may nothing vex it, —
Thy years be not a few.
And at thy final exit
May the devil miss his due/’

a woman student of medicine. "If,
Instead of pouring down powders and
pills of whose effect they know noth- l
ing. women would try the water cure
for btllouß and sick headaches, they
would cure themselves at less cost. '
I have cured many a severe headache
by simply drinking a glass of water '
regularly every hour. The clear Juice j
of a lemon in half a glass of water. <
without sugar. Is excellent for a bilious j
headache. Fasting, in connection
with copious water drinking, will cure
more ailments than people dream."— i
Came Near Finding Out.
Among examples of American hu
mor recently given in the Nineteenth
Century and After is a story which a
bright ornament of the English bench
Is said to have told more than once.
A speaker In a Western town had
started out to show that there might
be great differences between nation
al and local reputation. He had said,
“A man can't always tell what his
neighbors think of him," when he was
interrupted by one of his hearers.
"I came mighty near knowing
once.” said the man, with a remin
iscent look, "but the jury disagreed.”
Words Changed in Significance.
“Silly” and "holiday”—both adjec
tives —are used of this present season.
There is a similarity In the history of
the two words. Just as "bolyday" has
lost Its one-time ecclesiastical signifi
cance, so has "silly” lost the sense of
the old English “saellg," blessed or
holy. “This harmless silly babe."
sung an early poet of the Christ Him
self. Through that meaning of harm
lessness came the degradation of the
word. If a man were harmless he
must be stupid, like the “silly sheep”
whom poets thus addressed, meaning
no reproach, but rather speaking in
terms of endearment.
