Rýi Powder A LITERAL MINDED MAN. An tatmeted Spectator Who Teek a P.. Utheal 5mtery l Seed Vatth. The mast curious person in the audi. sace of a story teller is the literal minded main. When General Dix ran for gov ernor there was great discussion as to his age. It was one of the controversies of the canvass. His opponents claimed that he was too old to fulfill the functions of the oftee. Singularly enough, the biographical dictionaries differed about ten years. I was making a speech at Watertown to a very big audience. I was running at that time as a liberal Republican for lieutenant governor upon the same tic' et with Francis Kernan. It was an iniumense outdoor lndtence. In front of me et w~d a man who watched me during the three hiurs of that speech for the pi ur- of catching 1ne on some, material l 'wit.

A HAPPY MAN. The Lost I)n of His Mental lalane* a Happy One, H.e Keoes No Tomorrow. I have sien at last a happy man. the happiest I ever knew. He is perhaps 45 years old, and his happiness has been un broken for two, years or more. Hear his story. He is a gentleman in every sense of the word. He has means, social Isiition and a large circle of de voted relatives and friends. He has a fine physique, a handsome fact. But we did not call him a happy man. 'such a happy man," until two years ag.'. when the great change came. He never mar ried, and the Miss X. of whom I tell you was no more to him than his lifelong comrade, his best of friend--an old neighbor, related to him in many ways, but never by the tender tie. Perhaps he had been more of an in valid than he knew or than his friends dreamed. One summer day he went to the little lake not far from his native village, a popular inland resort, and I spent what he called npons his return that night "a perfect day." Skier( were never bluer, he said, nor flowers fairer nor the lake so lovely to him as upo n that day. Only lie had exis cted to meet Miss X. there and to have had their usual sail together. He would go again on the morrow. take her with him and so double and in crease the joy. He went to her ho-en that evenin; ti play whist as nual. It was Saturday., She had gone to apersI Smuday at the lake. - He waIer3s lad si ii-a g ne, lwe sid; lie wfld jildTti er the next day. During the game he al luded many time to the happy day he had passed. And what is there in life after all like a tomc.row full of promise? That night after reaching his room he had a paralytic stroke-not a severe one, only a slight shock, but it clouded his brain, if we can call that a cloud which fied forever in his mind the happiness reigning there when it came. Every day since then has been that happy Saturday to him. He has juatre turned from the lake. No matter if the snow is drifting or the rain is beating the windows. it has been a perfect day. everything in divine harmony. He will go over to X.'s for a game of whist. Even if Miss X. meets him he asks if she is at home, as if lie were addressing some one tele: then lie is so glad she is up at the lake; lie is going back tomorrow; there is every igni of Itfect weather, etc.. all in his old time charming way. Then he takes up his cards and plays a capital game and goes home in the sweet expectation of a happy tonorroiv. All else in life seeims a blank to him In that one fair niche of meutiory he we all of the pact, the presen-it and the fn ture. He ap--ears to be reading often times when tie ttok he holds is up sitle down. Death neans nothing to himi. Whetn his friends dit., he does not weelp nor question ltr lis thei. He haIs had such a halppy day. and he is going to re peat it tmnorrow. Naturally his vase is of intorest to specialists. He is nltvt-r troublesome. Hel" goes about tie village and ex-ha-ge- ctri dial greetings. Nor does lie always steak of what is in lpossession of his mind. lul less you hold hin too ling. Thea he has excuse for breaking away. Question-If that last day of his mno tal balance had been an unhappy ote. say a day black with anguish or remorse or embittered with rage and revenge, would lie now be the oplpsite of what lie is-a wild beast in toils-the remainder of his life the horrible evolution of an inci dental. who knows but an accident, mood?-Atlantic Monthly. From Rishes to Abject Poverty. An old man with a thin, bent forn and a few locks of white hair peeping fromu beneath a rusty old fashioned silk hat hobbled painfully through Broad street one afternoon last week and took his stand near the Mills building. He leanct wearily on his stout stick and appeared to be in pain. His manner was abso lutely passive. He paid no attention to surrounding tbjecta and spoke to no per son. He simply stood still. Within half an hour after the close of business in the exchanges at least half a dozen well known brokers in passing this old gentle man slyly sipped a coin or a crumpled note into his hand. -Who is that old many' asked the phase writer of a gen tleman who is regarded as a landmarkin Wall street. I won't metention his name." was the reply. "but he used to be one of the high rollers down litre.

An Auburn hsan iwas rebuked for it. dulging in a pleasantry in a prayer meet iug not long ago, but still daring spirits occasionally mr'negres:. in that way with out being gridironed. It is related at a r cent parish meeting in Richmond, Me., to see about (ailing a pastor, a well known citizen prominent in church af fairs took occasion to remark on the ap parent indifference of church members to the object for which the meeting had been called. He had hoped, he said, to see the church membership fully represented, but it was with much regret that he noted their ale sence. At the conclusion of the gentle man's remarks a woman in the congrega tion who had grown uneasy under his criticism ventured to suggest that there was a fair representation of the ecclesi astical body present, indicating by a wave of her hand several church members occupying seats in different parts of the house. For a moment it looked like a knock out in favor of the woman, but the gen tleman was equal to the occasion, and straightening up he remarked with his usual gravity, "It may be that our I memlers look and appear so much like the world's people that I did not recog nize thema."-Lewiston Journal. Whittler's e.slgmstIee. Here is a beautiful extract of one of Whittier's letters to Elizabeth Stuart Phelps: I have just been reading Canon Far rar's sermons on the "Eternal Hope," and I agree with him in the title of one of them, that "Life is Worth Living." even if one can't sleep the biggest part of it away.
