Beauty was born of t.: ar:d's desire
For the wandering wa r. the wandering Bre;
Under the arch of her l .rrying feet
She has trodden a world full of bitterswsti,
The blood of the violet is in her veins:
Her pulse has the passion of April rains.
Out of the heart of a satin flower
God made her eyelids in one swoet hour.
Out of the wind he made her feet
That they might be lovely and laring and Best;
Out of a cloud he wove her hair
Heavy and black with the rain held thee.
What is her name? There's none that knows
Mother of Mischief or Mouth of Rose.
What is her pathway? None may tell,
But it climbs to heaven, and it dips to hl.
The garment on her is mist and fire,
Anger and sorrow and beart's desire.
Her forehead jewel's an amcthyst;
The garland to her is love in a mist.
!er girdle is of the beryl stone,
And one dark rose for her flower has grown,
Filled ,, the brim with the strength of the saw
A passionate rose, and only one.
The bird in her breast sings all day long
A wonderful, wistful, whispering song;
The song that is of all passing thi:.gs,
None knows it-wingless or born with wings.
The Knack of Balancing Them Prop
erly on the None.
A young man who had purchased a
pair of eyeglasses at a, local optltian's
the other day was complaining to the
clerk that he couldn't keep them on.
"They are continually falling off," he
said, "and are really gettinco to be a
first class nuisance. Don't you think It
would help things if you tightened up
the spring a little?"
"No. I wo'ildn't advise you to alter
the spring," replied the clerk. "It's so
tight now that it Is scarring your nose.
If you'll only be patient for a few
days, I think you'll learn to wear these
glasses all right. Come In at the end
of the week. and if you are still having
trouble with them I'll fit you out with
a pair of spectacles."
"What do you mean by 'learning to
wear' those eyeglasses?" asked a man
who happened to be standing within
earshot after the customer had walked
out. "Is It a trick that his to be ac
quired by practice?"
"Certainly it is," replied the clerk.
"Wearing eyeglasses is something that
has to he learned, just like riding a bi
cycle-in fact, the comparison is pretty
good, because both are simply feats of
balancing. The shape of the nose has
very little to do with it," continued the
clerk. "and isn't worth taking into con
sideration in selecting a pair of glass
es. But if a man has a nose like the
prow of an armored cruiser he couldn't
make eyeglasses stay there at first at
tempt. Until he acquired the knack of
keeping them in place by balance they
would be falling off every time he
made a sudden movement, no matter
how tightly lie screwed up the spring.
Once the trick is mastered, however,
there Is no further trouble. People
who wear eyeglasses habitually and
who may be regarded as experts keep
the spring very loose. The glasses rest
on the bridge of the nose as lightly as
a feather, but they never come off. I
once saw a nearsighted man fall down
two flights of stairs and get up with
his glasses still firmly in place. How
is it done? Dear me, I don't know!
How do people learn to walk the tight
rope?"-New Orleans Times-Democrat

A SLEEPY GUEST.
Why the lady of the Houe Was In.
digna 2 0Ie: Ills Conduct.
There is a . known legal light of
Chicago who is in deep disgrace with.
out the shadow of an excuse for him
self to bolster up his sinking spirits.
He went out to Hyde Park the other
night to dine informally with some
friends, and his hostess, who had been
married laut a short time. put herself
out to ente:tain him. The dinner was
excellent. and the judge (lid full jus
tiee to it. They had couee in the libra
ry, and the biggest, most padded leath
er chair was put at the guest's dispos
al. With a sigh lie sank into its 'av
erno'us depths and prepared for a luxu
rious evening with a good cigar ahead
of himt. Brilliantly his hostess rambled
on. She told stories that were witty,
and she gently deferred to his views,
but presently he left her to do all the
talking. In the midst of a striking ac
count of a theater party she stopped
with a jerk. There was no response
and a dead silence punctuated only by
a gentle and regular breathing. The
judge was fast asleep in his big chair.
There was no doubt of it. Nothing
could conceal the fact. With one in
dignant and comprehensive glance at
her plainly delighted husband she
arose and majestically swept up ctairs.
And she did not go down again.
It was some time later when her
husband apologetically came up after
her. He had not expected her wrath
to last. "Did-did you think you were
badly treated'?" lie asked.
"How long did he sleep?" asked the
still insult..d wife.
Again the grin overspread her hus
band's face, but 1e spoke in a sad tone,
as befitted the 4ccrasion. "Nearly an
hour," he breath'ed. "I wouldn't mind,"
Then it wrs the worm turned.
"Mind!" she stormed. "Of course I
wouldn't, only you have grounds now
for the rest of your life for saying I
talk so much it puts people to sleep!"
And she wept.-Chicago News.
SOMETHING ABOUT ARMIES.
Artillerymen Were Once Regarded
as Mechanics, Not Soldiers.
Until the time of Charles XII of Swe
den the artillery was not considered a
part of the army. The men serving in
it were not soldiers, but retarded as
mechanics. ''he ofdicers had no army
rank. Charles X11 gave artillery offi
cers a rank and regularly organized the
artillery Into companies. The battle of
Pavia demonstrated the superiority of
the gun in the hands of the Spanish
infantry. The musket carried a two
ounce ball and sometimes brought
down at one fire two or three mailed
knights. The French sent a flag of
truce to remonstrate against the use of
such barbarous weapons.
Alexander had four kinds of cavalry
the cataphrati. or heavy armed horse;
the light cavalry, carrying spears and
very light armor; the acrobalista, or
mounted archers, used for outposts, pa
trols and reconnoitering duty, and the
dimachoe, or troops expected to act ei
ther as cavalry or infantry. Alexander
the Great reorganized his father's ar
my. The file or lachos of 1G men was
the unit; two files made a dilochy;
two dilochies made a tetrarchy; two
tetrarchies a texiarchy; two of these a
syntagura; 16 of these a small phalanx;
tour of these a tetr'a-phalangarchy, oth
rwise known as a large phalanx.
The Greeks attacked in a phalanx,
the spears interlocked and shields over
lapping. After the first onset the spears
were dropped, and the day was decid
ed with the sword. The cavalry at
tacked the enemy in the rear, if possi
ble. and, in case of victory, undertook
the pursuit.-Pearson's Weekly.
Not the Conventional Woman.
"But I don't know you, madam," the
bank cashier said to the woman who
ad presented a check.
But this woman, instead of saying
baughtily, "I do not wish your ac
:uaintance, sir," merely replied, with
.n engaging smile:
"Oh, yes, you do, I think. I'm the
'redheaded old virago' next door to you
whose 'scoundrelly lIttle boys' are al
ways reaching through the fence and
picking your flowers. When you start
d down town this morning, your wife
said: 'Now, Henry, if you want a din
er fit to eat this evening, you'll have
to leave me a little money. I can't run
this house on the city water and 10
ents a day'"
"Here's your money, madam," said
the cashier, pushing it toward her and
oughing loudly.-Chicago Tribune.
What the Tots Said.
Here are some sayings of children
reported by the Chicago News:
"When small Bobby had worn his
first pair of trousers for an hour, he
went to his mother and begged to have
n his kilt again. 'What for?' she ask
ed. 'Because,' replied Bobby, 'I feel
so lonesome in pants.'
"A mother recently had occasion to
leave her little 4-year-old son alone at
home while she made a brief call in the
eighborhood. 'Did you get lonesome,
dear?' she asked upon her return. 'Yes,
Eamma,' replied the little fellow. 'I
f'elt just like a widower without you.'"
Married Man-And you are engaged
to Miss Blankie?
Young Friend-Yes. I watched her
a whole day on the railroad train and
became so interested in her that I fol
lowed her up, got an introduction, and
now we are to be married.
Married Man-Was she traveling
Young Friend-No. She was with
her mother, and her kindness to her
mother is what captured me.
Married Man-But, gee willikins,
id man, she'll go on being kind to her
nother.-New York Weekly.
Catterson-Look here, old manl Let
e tell you how I manage my wife. I
always give her money when she does
not want it. and when she does I refer
to the time when I offered it to her.
Hatterson-That's a fine scheme, but
it wouldn't work in my case.

whea my wife didn't want money."

When the Young Woman Thought It
Was Gold, She Got Nervous.
The car had just rounded ":dead
man's curve" at Fourteenth street,
when a daintily clad young woman
swished something out of her hand
which as it struck the street was fol
lowed by a sharp metallic sound.
"What was that you threw away, my
dear?" asked her companion, another
girl about the same age.
"Money." laconically responded the
"Money:" continued her companion
in a horrified tone of voice. "Why, it
sounded like gold."
"My gracious!" shrieked the thrower.
"Have I thrown away one of those
By this time several of the passen
Sers had arisen from their seats and
were looking in an indignant way at
the conductor for not stopping the car.
He, however, was one of those high
collared, stoical young men who boss
things on the Broadway cars, and the
excitement created by the money
thrower did not cause him to turn a
hair. All this time the car was bowl
ing as merrily along as Broadway cars
ever do bowl, and it was getting far
ther and farther away from the mon
ey. One or two of the passengers were
about to jump off the car, but then
they thought better of it and turned
their gaze anxiously on the young wo
man, who was hunting frantically
through her purse. Just as It seemed
the strain would be too much for the
excited passengers to bear longer the
fair thrower looked up smilingly at her
companion and murmured sweetly:
"It's all right, my dear. It wasn't a
goldpiece after all."
"What was it, then?" asked the sec
ond young woman
"Only a crooked penny," replied the
thrower. "I always throw away crook
ed pennies for luck."
Then both girls softly giggled, while
the other passengers, looking both fool
ish and disgusted. resumed their seats.

ORIGIN OF THE TERM "MOB"
Used In Its First meaning In Time of
As indicating the populace, prover
bially fickle and easy to be moved (mo
bile, from Latin mobillis), the expres
sion "the mobile people" is as old as
the time of Chaucer, but in its later
sense, that of the disorderly crowd,
and in its contracted form, "mob," if is
not older than the postrestoration pe
riod. In Roger North's Examen, 1740,
reference is made to the Green Ribbon
club, 1680-2, and the writer adds:
"I may note that the rabble first
changed their title r nd were called the
mob in the assemblies of this club
first mobile vulgus, then contracted in
one syllable." It was used hesitating
ly at first by Dryden ("Don Sebastian,"
1690), Durfy ("Commonwealth of Wo
men." 16SS) and Shadwell ("Squire of
Alsatia," 10SS), and Richardson points
out that Dryden uses both "mobile"
and "mob" in the sense of rabble, the
former in the stage directions as the
common word, the latter as if it had
not long been introduced.
In 1711 The Spectator instances
"mob" as an example of the popular
tendency to curtail many of our words
in familiar writings and conv-ersation.
The verb "to mob," derived of course
as above, does not occur until the pe
riod of Horace Walpole, many years
later, and Shakespeare's expression,
"the mobled queen" ("Hamlet"), refers
not to the "mob" (mobile), but to the
headdress in disorder.-Boston Tran

The Rev. Father Staunton of the well
known Church of St. Alban, Holborn,
is a humorist In his way and often tells
with inimitable effect a droll story in
the course of his sermon which sends
through the congregation a gentle rip
ple of merriment. On Sunday he sat
irized the ambition of certain people
to use words of which they did not
know the meaning. Many of them
were fond of sticking the letters "D.
V." in all sorts of places instead of
using the plain, homely English phrase
"God willing." He knew one gentle
man, rather shaky in his Latin, who in
a letter to a friend wrote "I will be
with you 'D. V.' on Monday, but any
way on Tuesday."-London Telegraph.
A Jacket of Many Garments.
Although Gordon declined to accept
the bowls of gold offered him by the
Chinese emperor after the suppression
of the Taiping rebellion, yet he con
sented to receive the yellow jacket, a
distinction limited to 12 wearers, who
constitute the imperial bodyguard.
When the presentation of so exalted
an oriental order took place, there was
a most remarkable ceremony observed
by the Celestial grandees commission
ed to personally confer the high mark
of the emperor's favor.
To Gordon's evident astonishment,
the operation of donning the yellow
jaket in its entirety was a consider
able undertaking, for between two
and three hours the great but simple
minded soldier was engaged in putting
on one suit and taking off another until
a most extensive wardrobe had been

A minister in Glasgow, says The Scot

was standing looking in at one of the
Sabath school windows how he would
like to join the Sunday school and
grow up a good man.
"What sort o' Sunday schule is't?
"Yes," said the clergyman. "It is
connected with the Established church.
Are you not coming in?"'
"Na." rep~lied the boy. "I tried the
