Thé warring tribes of earth invoke,
Before thy face the nations cower,
And sink beneath thy cruel yoke.
The iron casque is on thy head.

The crackling torch before thee dares,
Fierce flames leap hissing in thy wake,
Upon thy reeking altar-stairs

Thy censor is the smoking plain.
A-swing between the rocking hills;
Thy sacrifice the foemen slain;
Thy saving grace the hate that kills.
The brazen-throated cannon roar
Their stormy paean in thy praise;
On littered sea and ravaged shore
The hurtling missiles trace thy ways,
To thee, grim-visaged god of war,

Before Life's solemn judgment bar

"Norah, my dear."
The girl turned around, as a hand
was laid on her shoulder, and her
mother's voice was saying;
"I will leave you to welcome to
your first ball our latest guests. Mr.
Hamilton, Mr. Brown, my daughter,
Miss Norah Grahame."
Norah looked up, with a sudden
start, at the two gentlemèn before
her, the faint rose-flush burning to
crimson in her cheeks and temples;
then she dropped her gaze, with a
flash in the violet eyes, and the faint
est scornful curve of the red lip.
And this is what she saw, before
the long black lashes drooped, and
she had bowed her acknowledgment
of the introduction:
Two gentlemen—the foremost—
why had not her mother giyen him
the name of Brown?—for, omitting
the part his dress-tailor had in his
make, he certainly was the quintes
sence of whity-brownishness, from
the topmost wave of carefully adjust
ed hair on the head—which was on a
level with Norah's own—to the point
of the mild little moustache. Brown,
by all that is fair; but, then, mamma
Mr. Hamilton." And Norah's
lip took that haughty curve again;
for the name of Hamilton was not
unknown to her as the great parti
season - anc j s he had, too, the
not very pleasant conviction of being
brought out this evening, on exhibi
tion as "the Grahame beauty," in
mamma's hope of pleasing the con
noisseur taste of Mr. Hamilton, or
"Mr. Half-a-million-of-money,
Norah was saying to herself.
"He'll not buy many words from
me, the popinjay!" she was adding,
voicelessly, with more decision than
elegance, as, after a commonplace
phrase or so, she turned to her other
guest still standing silent somewhat
in the rear.
"I wonder whether anything but
one's first ball looks so much like a
kaleidoscope?" she said, gayly. "My
head is quite dizy with looking at the
whirl of bright dresses and faces. *
"Would it he any dizier," Mr.
Brown answered, with a smile, "if
you were to join in the dance, in
stead of watching it from here?
Listen—that is the most waltzable of
waltzes. May I not have the pleas
The violet eyes brightened eagerly
»—-then fell again.
"But mamma told me I was not to
dance the round dances."
He smiled.
"I wonder what a first ball is for,
If it is not to disobey one's mamma
for once? One can be very obedient
afterward, you know; for a first ball
never comes again."
Half frightened, half persuaded,
Norah looked up at him. Now, if it
were only Mr. Hamilton at whose
bidding she was about to be disobe
dient, she knew the fault might be
easily forgiven; but to break through
her stepmamma's rule in favor of a
Mr. Brown, even though that Mr.
Brown had good six feet and cordial,
merry brown eyes and—
"Miss Grahame."
Hamilton's thin voice was at her
elbow; Hamilton's faultless kid glove
was presenting her with the handker
chief she bad let fall.
She took it with a bow; then hur
riedly put her hand in the arm Mr.
Brown was offering her. Anthing to
get out of the way of that Hamilton's
appraising gaze. Anything to escape
from the feeling of being up for sale
—price, half a million of money!
"I wonder what a first ball is for,
if it is not to disobey one's mamma
for once?"
The words came into Norah's mind
more than once throughout the even
ing, with a little rush of terror for
the reckoning to come. But certainly
this first ball would never come
again; and certainly it was charming
beyond all school girl dreams of balls.
And Norah waltzed with Mr. Brown,
and galloped with Mr. Brown, and
redowaed with Mr. Brown; and alto
gether might havé been in a brown
study, for all the attention she yield
ed to her other gueBts.
After supper the heated, crowded
dancing rooms were not quite so
pleasant as the little balcony, which
hung out from the end one over the
May-blossoming flower garden and
under the misty May stars. At least
so thought two, apparently, who had
passed out through the open French
window, and who now stood on the
balcony, leaning against the balus
trade, and half shut out from the
glare within by the lace curtains fall
ing between.
They were not speaking much—
only a word falling now and then—
and she had drawn her hand coyly
from his arm, and was plucking at
the climbing woodbine leaves which
fringed the railing. But some one
else was speaking, presently, just in
plde there, with a woman's shadow on
the window curtains. Norah had not
heard the first words, but the last
caught her attention:
"The Grahame beauty's debut.
What do you say now of Mamma
Grahame's angling for our million
aire, with her dainty morsel of fresh
If there were any answer, Norah
did not hear it. And when, after a
pause, she raised her head defiantly,
the shadow was gone from the cur
tain, and the eyes she encountered
were two dark ones fixed earnestly
upon her.
A quiver passed across her mouth,
and she bent down her head again,
plucking at the leaves as before, and
as if there were nothing else worth
looking at beneath the balmy star
light. But her lip quivered again, in
spite of herself, and a tear glittered
on the lowered lashes.
"Miss Grahame—" began Mr.
"If you would leave me alone," she
interrupted passionately—"I am low
ered enough in my own eyes not to
need humbling in any one else's.
And when I have tried tc keep out
of the man s way ail the evening,
too! When I hate him, and wouldn't
look a second time at the old whity
brown article, for all his half million
of money! A dainty fresh morsel of]
bait, indeed! I wish it might strangle
him if he ever catches it!"
There was a puzzled expression in
the eyes bent on her, which presently
gave place to a twinkle of suppressed
amusement; and then to something
softer, as he said:
"You are hard on poor Hamilton;
and yet he might care little for his
half million in comparison with a
kinder word from 3 'ou. Will he never
have it?"
"Never!" she repeated, with rosy
lips firm set.
"Poor Hamilton! But, Miss Gra
hame— "
She tapped her foot impatiently
upon the floor.
"I assure you I think him quite a
fine fellow, Miss Grahame," Brown
went on, with the old twinkle in his
eyes; "and I fain would recommend
him to mercy. If you will pardon me
for saying it, I am sure he has fallen
in love with you."
Her eyes flashed as she lifted them;
but they fell again as suddenly before
something in his. That something,
which set her pulses throbbing wild
ly, made her also strive to respond
lightly and carelessly:
"Have some mercy, Mr. Brown!
Do you suppose you are sounding Mr.
Hamilton's praises for the first time
in my ear? Would it be very rude
to say that, when a tale is told for
the,hundredth time, it becomes just a
little wearisome?"
"But when Mr. Hamilton tells his
for the first time—ah, Miss Norah!
did you ever hear of Highland Nora?"
She bit her lip until the blood
came; but she mastered herself to
reply, coolly:
"The end of Highland Nora is a
myth, sir. But it is very true she
"For all the gold, for all the gear,
For all the lands, both far and near,
That ever valor lost or won,
I would not wed the Earlie's son."
And without vouchsafing Mr.
Brown another glance, she gathered
the train of her dress in her hands,
and would have swept by him, and
into the ball room again.
But some one was standing ix the
way, before the window—some one
who turned and said to the man at
Norah's side:
"Ah, Hamilton, you there! I was
just looking for a vis-a-vis in the
Lancers. May I. depend on you?"
, 1 " Certainly—I'll follow. "
And then, as his friend moved off,
Hamilton, alias Brown, looked round
at Norah, who had shrunk back into
the shadow on the balcony.
"Miss Grahame— Nôrah! "
She did not move; and he went to
The Set of the Soul.
: One sliip drives east and another drives west,
While the self same breezes blow;
: It's the set of the sails, and not the gaies,
That bids them where to go.
: Like the winds of the sea are the ways of the fates,
As we voyage along throngh life;
: It's the set of the soot that decides the goal,
And not the storms or the strife.

her, and drew her hands away f?om
her burning face.
"Norah, are you angry with me?
It was all your own mistake. Shall
I go and send the veritable Brown
to you?"
She was laughing now, in spite of
her confusion. She was trembling,
too, for all he kept both her hands
firm in his.
"Is the end of 'Highland Nora' a
myth?" he was saying. "Do you know
the last two lines of the poem sound
to me like a prophecy of blessed
'Nora's heart is lost and won—
She's wedded to the Èarlie's son.
It was rather a bold prophecy for
a first evening of acquaintance; but
then he had said he was quite sure
Hamilton had fallen in lo~e at first
sight. Perhaps Norah took this into
consideration—for, though she man
aged adroitly to flit away from him,
and into the ball room, as the last
words left his lips, yet, as her place
was beside Mr. Hamilton, when he
was vis-a-vis to his friend in the
Lr.ncers, it is fair tc suppose she was
not very angry.
And it is fair to suppose, too, that
Hamilton's prophecy did turn out the
blessed truth, after all—when, one
bright April morning, as the last of a
long train of carriages drove off from
before St. Paul's Church, a lady, com
ing down the church steps, skid to her
neighbor, as she raised her parasol:
"Ah, yes. I knew how it would be,
from the very night of the Grahame
beauty's debut. Mrs. Grahame knew
what she was about, when she baited
her hook with such a dainty little
creature as that."

For the last three years meat has
been cured by electricity in much less
time than was required by the old
method. The meat is placed in large
wooden tanks and covered with the
ordinary pickle. An alternating cur
rent of thirty-five amperes at thirty
five volts is passed through the vat,
the alternations serving to prevent
electrochemical action. Carbon elec
trodes are used, which are surround
ed by porous cups that dip into the
brine. The cost of curing a vatful of
meat (4000 pounds) is less than $1.
The action of the current is not per
fectly understood.
Any one who was familiar with the
appearance of the Niagara Falls be
fore the present power installations
were built and opened can settle the
question as to whether the appearance
of the falls has been affected by going
to see for himself. Small though the
total amount of water taken for pow
er purposes, in proportion to the total
amount passing over the falls, may
be, it has been sufficient to cause the
shallower portions of the overflow at
the edges of the falls to become en
tirely dr>% thereby greatly reducing
the total length of the crest line.
For developing photographs in day
light, a practice which has advantages
for the amateur, a new German pro
cess prepares the ordinary dry plate
by placing it in a four per cent, solu
tion of potassium iodide for two min
utes. The silver bromide ig thus con
verted into non-sensitive iodide, and
after this preliminary operation in a
suitable cloth bag is not affected by
daylight. Being first rinsed, the plate
is developed in equal parts of these
two solutions:
grammes; anhj'drous sodium sulphite,
20; metol, 1; hydroquinone, 8; po
tassium bromide, 40; (b) A 3 per
cent, solution of caustic potash. The
developing requires about five min
utes, and the fixing—by the usual
process—a little longer than usual.
Divers increase the time that they
can remain under water by a little
preliminary deep breathing. A late
experimenter has found that without
preparation he could hold his breath
for only forty-two seconds, but after
one minute of forced breathing he
could hold it for two minutes and
twent 3 T -one seconds; after three min
utes, for three minutes and twenty
one seconds, and after six minutes,
for four minutes and five seconds.
The effect of the forced breathing ap
pears to be a freeing of the blood and
body tissues from considerable Carbon
dioxide. It proves to be undesirable,
however, to continue the forced
breathing more than two or three
minutes, for if it is prolonged the
muscles of the hands become rigid,
and remain completely paralyzed for
a minute or two after holding the
breath begins. In actual practice,
the pearl divers of Ceylon take only a
few deep breaths before descending.
The Milk Standard.
The clubwomen of Massachusetts
are fighting against the movement to
lower the milk standard in that State.
This fight is said to be winning more
recruits to the cause of woman suf
frage than anything that has come up
in the last ten years. Mothers have
come to agree with Mrs. Charlotte
Perkins Gilman in asserting that poli
tics which affects the purity of milk
and water is "not outside the home,
but inside the baby."

Temper in Young Babies.
In some children of eight months
er more there appears occasionally a
display of violent temper which is
hard to control. In such a paroxysm
of rage a child will destroy anything
within his reach, screaming, in the
meantime, at the top of his lungs.
The only thing for the mother to do
is to keep him a3 still and as quiet
as possible. If he persists in yelling,
pick him. up and carry him to a quiet
place whither there is nothing he can
injure—and leave him there. To be
in solitude is the very best medicine
for him at such a time. Striking him
or punishing him in some manner is
rarely successful in quieting him.
a child is quieted in such a manner, it
is almost as bad as to leave him in a
state of anger, for the emotion of fear
has only been substituted for the emo
lion of ange-« —and there is
gained for the child. If mothers
were only more honest with them
selves in this respect, it would be
better for them as well a3 for their
How many women excuse their own
hxsty temper with the thought that

Into this box at each meeting of the

These comments and suggestions
the president fishes out of the bos
and reads aloud to the society.
They are unsigned, of course, so
that nobody knows who writes what.
They are put in a kindly, sometimes
half humorous spirit, and they arc
always couched so as to hurt as little
