A Magnificent Monument t be Ewitl 10 William I. Under Instructions Iron the Em- i peror of Germany Prof. Reinhold ! I:. oae of the leading sculptors of Europe, to executing a national mi i .in ii. to n 1.1 v i. or ueny t.xr. memorial to the first Emperor of the confederated fatherland, William L The monument will 1 e one of the finest, if not the Quest public monu ment in Europe and will be erected opposite the old Hohciizollern I'alaee in Berlin. The monument will be nearly 70 feet in height, the pedestal resting on a broad foundation on which will be placed at the four cor ners allegorical figures of lions in bronze. The corners of the pedestal are to be supported by four figures of victory. The tablet will contain a suitable Inscription, above which will be the Imperial insignia of the Order of the Black Eagle upon the pedestal. The venerable Emperor, William I, will be represented riding in full military dies, his horse's bridle be ing held by an heroic figure. Thus will be arranged the central portion of the monument. But the general view will be very different, for almost surrounding the statue will be a colonnade, constructed so as to form Ave sides of an octagon, with the sides behind the statue longer than the others. The entrance to each end of the colonnade Is through an archway surmounted by a warrior driving a chariot with four horses, while emblematic figures at intervals relieve the monotony of the top part of the colonnade. The statues in the niches, both on the inside and the outside of the rows of pillars, will represent various rules of Prussia and the German States and the great commanders of the German Imperial Army, as well as the leading public men of the time of the first William. The Woman Who Has Tact. There is nothing that carries a woman so far toward tl. goal of so I cial success as tact She may not ! possess those qualities necessary for j leadership, but she will have no dif ficulty in securing so firm a foothold that she need hare no dread of a greater power dawning upon the so cial horizon. The reason for this is that In teality tact is but another word for goodness of heart, and In nate kindness to all must be the key stone that the woman of the world builds the castles of her ambition upon. The tactful woman always says and does the right thing at the right time. She never wounds by these gauchcries which all unintentionally, yet nevertheless painfully, remind us of things we had rather have forgot ten, or tells us unpleasant truths that are no less bitter because we know that there is no denying them. Tact pat-sea over every faux pas and somehow manages them into something pica the embarassed perpetr; to convert hing peasant before perpetrator has a a blush at his own All graces of mind chance to rais-; awkwardness- and body seem embodied in that one word, for a woman may be painfully plain, yet With this virtue she be comes radiantly lovely In the eyes of those whom her consummate art has re-t unl from -;ne dire strait. She may be poor, but to those about her the richness of her nature atones for the lack of worldly wealth. Her gowns may be dowdy, but as she dwells among us she appears to be clothed in garments of radiant light, and it would be a h ave spirit Indeed that dared to cavil at the makeup of ' a woman whose gracious presence and tactful spirit had spared them many a period of embarassmcnt Above all virtues cultivate tict. for in it lies the secret of all others.

Why Fish Have White Bellies. There is no phenomenon of nature that escapes the investigating eye of science. In England .hey have late ly Leen exper. mention with lloi'nders in order to determine whether the whiteness of the under sides of those Ash is due to the exclusion of light, and the presence of color on their upper sides to exposure to light. They have kept the tlsh experi mented upon living in a glass tank having a mirror placed beneath, su as to reflect light upon the under sides of the tlsh. One of these prisoners has sur vived for three years under condi tions so strangely different from its ordinary habits of life, and all of them have exhibited the development of spirts of pigment on their lower surfaces. The experimenters have concluded that it Is exposure to light that cause the coloration of the upper parts of the bodies not only of flounders but of other tlsh, aud con versely, that it Is to the comparative absence of light that the whiteness of the under sides of tlsh is due. They extend the same principle to explain the colniless c ndition of the skins of many animals that pass all their lives in caves. It- tilorles Departed. Donnybrook Is on the outskirts of the city of Dublin, but Iionnybrook fair ground is no longer the friendly fighting ground of former days. Once the teuts made of wattles, with patchwork quilts or blankets or old petticoats spread over t,hem, held rows of tables made of doors placed on mounds of clay. The benches, too, rested on the same uncertain foundation and when the young Irish men grew unsteady the bench sent them all down to the floor. Out on the green there was fighting and sports and at night the Addles played Jigs to; the jolly young people. It appears from the accounts given by the strangers who visited Donnybrook almost a hundred years ago that there was good reason for the world wide meaning given to the mere ex pression " Donnybrook Fair." But Its glories have departed and it to many a long day since the cheerful shillaly was wielded around Donny- j brook castle. Career v'a Famous Detective.

Commercial Gazette t'tlllty r the tiourd. One begins to encounter the gourd as a domestic utensil about one hun dred miles south of Mason and Dixon's line, where the local pronunciation is something like goord. The dipper and snap dish made from the gourd go along witn the old well-sweep and the plantation dwelling with separate "quarters." K skillful negro can fashion marvelously graceful and convenient utensils from the gourd. The dipper is the simplest of all. For it th manufacturer chooses a gourd with a round body and a natural han ile. A disk is cut from the br.dy, the meat Is taken from the gourd, the shell is carefully dried, and you have a dipper that will last for months, perhaps for years. Spoons of excellent shape ami durability may be made from the gourd, as also cream skimmers and the like. Pennsylvania Forests Disappearing. Dr. Joseph T.
