Sleep on. dear, now,
The last sleep and the hest
And on thy brow
And on thy quiet breast.

No fears were rite,
To trouble thy brief smile
With stress or strife.
Lie still and be
Forevermore a childl
Not grudgingly.
Whom life has not defiled,
I render thee!

No Need ol Praise.
"You never sit and talk to me as yao
did before we were married." sighed the
young wife.
"No," replied the husband, who was a
draper's assistant. "The guv'nor told
me to stop praising the goods as soon as
the bargain was struck"-London T'_t

Do Ants TAlk?
I one day saw a drove of the small
black ants moving, perhaps to better
quarters. The distance was some l:0
yards. Most all which came from the
old home carried some of the household
goods. Some had eggs, some had what
may have answered for their bacon or
meat; some had one thing and some an
other. I sat and watched them closely
for over an hour. I noticed that every
time two met in the way they would
hold their heads close together as if
greeting one another, and no matter
how often the meeting took place this
same thing occnrred, as though a short
chat were nec.tssary.
To prove more about it, I killed on,
whoi wt.s on hi.s way. Others being eye

Not Too .Mutch Gold.
Gold-not yellow, but the hue of the
priecious metal--yi his the most satisfy

retina is caplable. It behooves the de

where an etlf.ct of utmlost splendor is

Every hackney driver on his cab, every
publican on his premises, every publisher

of what is the id-al of costliness and

The evil reenlting from this is twofold.

.Men Are Not Interesting Invalids.
Woumen take only too kindly to the
role of an invali'l, the sofa. the fleecy
white shawl. tihe little cups of beef tea
or plates of o,,teors. Uiince let a woman

The valet comes flyint from the rooim
followed by ita iot, the cook gives notice i
because the master called the beef tea
"beastly stuff." the h~on ,emaid is in tears
because she is not allowed to sweep or
dust the sickroom. .Man. noble man, is
a pitiful object when he is sick. Get
him thoroughly ill and lie is a better pa

haid up for a day or two with a cold or a
bilious attack he persistently kicks in
stead of wisely enjoyiung the rest which a
beneficent nature has imposed on him-

How Laco Acts.
Loco is often called "crazy weed"
from its direful effect on cattle or horses
when they '.at it in any quantity. In the
beginning the poison is slow in showing
itself. The first symptom is usually a
dull, glassy lo,,k in the eyes, which grad
ually dilat,: and become wild and staring.
If after this the animal is left to graze
on the herb, the symptoms will become
more pronounced, the vision becomes
impaired, and the victim develops an
aptitude for grotesque antics, sometimes
rushing madly about. A "locoel" horse
will balk, back, rear and often hurl it
self backward, and has the greatest ob
jection to having its head touched.
The last and fatal stage of the disease
is a gradual wasting away of the ani
mal. Cattle born on the prairies seer'
instinctively to avoid the loco. High
grade beasts most easily fall victims to
their partiality for the weed.--Chambers'

One of the most interesting studits in
human nature about the city is the mani
who lives in hotels. I do not mean the
commercial traveler or the man who is
engaged in business of any kind, but the
man who has nmIl.ing to do but to loi
around himt andi enjoy hinmself. He mad
actually enjoy himself, too, for all I
know. I lh, : he dots. l!e is interi :t
in;g nas a illhstration of what some nt It
call enjo ,yment.
The fasihionable hotels of New York-
andi unfashionable hotels for that mat
ter-are the shelter of many men who
are not in business other than the busi
ness of looking pretty and observing the
rest of the world move. I do not say
they are the homes of such men-they
merely shelter and feed them.
In many instances this life is that of a
hermit. Possibly a man accustomed to
the wild, hilarious career offered by a
country hotel may cavil at the expres
sion in this connection, but it is because
such a man does not understand city
ways. A year or two ago a well todo gen
tleman died in a New York hotel. He
had lived in the hostelry for years, and
yet not a soul-if I may use the word
soul in speaking of a h ,tel corporation
knew him per:-onaily or anything about
him beyond the fact that he paid his bills
promnptly and regnlarly. He chose to
make no acqnaintances and was satis
fied to appear to tb. h. itel managers as
"No. 61. K.." or by whatever number his
room was , .i s;inated. The Ihotetl nlan-l
agemitnt ho:d clhage::d se.veral tiimes. but
he lived on thcrer, a calm, unruffled ex
As a guest such a man is a ji wel, and

not likely to ,t. harass.,d by tutnect:ssry
attentions. Whein hie died tnd it was
found that he swas a cltllleall of illde
lpendenllt fortulln-tlhe Ilewspailers, of
course. making the discovery--swme Ieo
plee marvclcd for a day or twot and then
forgot himnt. I recall the incident now
only to illus:rate that in a great city like
this what ali.pears to 1b, the most Iublic
life may be in reality ihe most exclusive.
There are Ip.lty of men living hermit
lives in New York hotels-as much sons
if they occupied a poor hovel in the soli
tary fasithn sees of the wilderness.
I know cmen who reside at swell hotels
who do not seek to avoid their fellows.
but who might as well be confined in
the penitentiary or be dead, so far as
their usefulness to society is concerned.
They remnind me of convicts-so appar
ently listless, aimless and inert their ex
istence. They eat. drink and sleep.
Life holds no monre inviting cup for them
thatn that offered by the hotel corridor.
They have exhausted what men call
pleasure or are bycyond the age of phys
ical enjoyment, with no reserve capacity
for mental lleasure. To a man of some
temperametnts tuch ait life would be a liv
ing death.-New York Cor. Pittsburg

A Rermarkable Statue.
Some years ago a melodrama was be
ing performed in a country theater, the
chief actor in which had made himself,
from his haughty and overbearing con
duct, disliked by all. In the last dcene
he was supposed to visit the tombs of his
ancestors. In the center of the stage
upon a marble pedestal stood the statue
of his father. A heavy fold of drapelry
covered the figure. Enter Albert. who
thus addressed the statue:
"Iam here once again to gaze upon
those features which in life so often
looked on me with tenderest affection.
Fatlhr. thy lnouroing son now comes to
pay thee adoration. Let me remove the
veil which from, the vulgar gaze shields
the beloved image of a ,once dear parent "
off went the dlrapery and, lehold! the
father stool up.n, his head! The effect
cannot hse delcrihd. It was electric.
The lhu,t, of laughter which followed
the ii ltake of the super effectually ;put
an enc to the scene, which changed to
the next as quickly as possible, amid the
jeers ,of the audience, the anger of the
manau"acr and the uncontrollable rage of
