ALBANY IN 1685.
How th Cniiltnl of Ntw York Looked Two
Allhouh in tho first rank of nations
as regards our material prosperity, we
are, an yut, only ft little removed In
point of time from our origin. It Is
not yet four hundred years since Ver
razznno made tho first discovery by
white men of Hhe Hudson river. A
poriod of only two h u nd red y oars takes
us back to the tlmo whon the city of
Albany had the following embryonic
exitttouce. The description is from
'lhe History of the City of Albany,
by Arthur James Welse. Th houses
in the village, about one hundred In
number, wore montly structures of logs
or of framed t imber, weather boarded.
There were some that were built ol
bricks Tho few etoue buildings were
of rough masonry. Wnny of the
houses were thatched with reeds, some
wore covered with shingles, and oth
ers were roofed with glazed tiles. Very
few of the steep gable-root had eave
t roughs, hence the occa-lonal use of
the deceptive phraseology "free drip,
In the early conveyances. Frequently
small square dormer windows were set
in the roof to admit light to ihe garrets
which wero commonly used as sleeping
rooms. i he chimneys wero mostly
Duui on Tiie out aiae ol the nouses, at
their gable endt. and were made wide
at the bottom for ir.ive lire places.
For warmh in winter, long and thick
pieces of wood were burned on these
ample hearths, particularly in the
kitchens, whioU lit cold womher were
usually the only rooms that had Are in
them. Wide, arched brick bake ovens
wero offpn built at the back sides of
these fepacious kitchen fire places, and
the part projecting Into the house yard
was jjenernlly covered with a shed
roof. House doors were mounted with
long Iron hinges sot on strong staples.
Windows conttilnod one or more sashes
filled with amall paae of glass set In
grooves of lead. 6 1 oops low, wooden
platforms with baoked benches were
generally placed before the front doors.
TUo porches, on fair summer evenings,

piacees of the viUugers, tnntUar at
Greenland's Icy Mountains.
'I heard an odd story the other day
ftoout Uinop Jiebor s beautiful hymn,
'From Greenland's Icy Mountains,
said a well-known Cincinnatiao.
What la UP" "It relates to the
music for the hymn. You remember
that Bishop lluber wrote it while In
Cuylon in 1821 About a year later it
reached America and a lady In
Charleston. S. C, was struck with Its
beauty. She could rind, however, no
tune that iwmed to suit her. She re
membered & you Li g bank clerk. Lowell
Mason, afterwards so celebrated, who
was just ft few step down the street,
and who had a reputation as musical
genius. So she sent her son to ask
him to write a tune that would go
with the hymn. In just half an hour
the boy cumo back with the music,
and the melody daubed oft in such
baste la to this dny sung with that
oug." Cmcuuwfi ar.

Consorts of history, when they have
Interfered with the politics of their

deal of harm. Henrietta Maria exer

court of Charles L Marie Antoinette
made her husband additionally unpop

married to a hlgh-splrlto l Havarian
Princess who encouraged his resist

around it all; they hail as heroes the
men who returnt they listen to the
muslo of the triumphal entry; they
watch the waving plumes and the
flaunting banners, and they invest
with intercut every man In the victor

reasoning enthusiasm that beautiful
women on thrones send brnve men out
to slay and to be slain stinging with
their taunts the Princes who hesitate,
and rewarding with their smiles the
rash Kings who stake their crowns on
the issues of a day. Queon Natalie, of
