(Intaelis Opulentior , etc.) By DENIS AB. BEHEN. The ode of which the following is a translation was written by Horace, the great Latin poet and philosopher, when Rome was the glorious Mistress of the World. It seems like a pro phetic vision of her subsequent ma terial downfall and spiritual ascend ency. The keen eye of the poet dis cerned the internal evils of his coun try and he here trumpets forth a warning blast against the^iuxury and materialism of the Roman people which finally brought about the igno minious disintegration of the proudest and mightiest empire the world has ever seen. This translation is slight ly paraphrased and adapted to the modern reader, yet in substance it endeavors to portray the thought of the original, although the dramatic compactness and picturesque felicity of expression of the author are, of course, lost in the rendering. The re markable similarity between the con ditions Horace here describes and de plores and those in our own country at the present time should make food for serious thought for our patriots and publicists: What though your wealth be greater than the treasures of Cathay, More fabulous than all the store of Ind and Araby? What though you've reared ten palaces and built a hundred piers? Though a chauffeur speeds your auto and your yacht a pilot steers? When the pirate flag of Fate Is driven in with clenching nails, To wave upon your cupola and flutter o'er your sails— When below upon your downy bed the fear of Death is nigh— When its clammy hand comes o'er you and you know you soon must die— When your head within that lethal noose you long have dodged is caught— Can escape with all your venal, sordid money THEN be bought? A simple, happy life they lived in pa triarchal days, When their homes were moving wagons drawn along the earth's highways; When the fields bore fruits for all, and each one did his common share Of labor for the general good; when no one was an heir; When a mother was maternal and not Fashion's devotee, And she knew no racial suicide for so cial sovereignty; When an heiress with a dowry could not tyrannize a man, Nor a villain by his smoothness make a wife a courtesan; When each had one common heritage, one splendid legacy, of their fathers and their mothers' chastity; When a couple clave together, both for better and for worse. By a bond Indissoluble In Divorce's mod ern curse; When to sin was crime and everv erring sinner got his due punishment of instant death—but punishments were few.

When the breathing pores become choked by dust the gases accumu late within the leaf for a time and then are forcibly ejected In an audi ble paroxysm of coughing and sneez ing, which makes the leaf tremble violently. At the same time the whole plant becomes red, owing to the subsiding of the green chlorophyll grains and the appearance of parti cles of red coloring matter on the sur face. This odd vine is sometimes culti vated as a house plant. Sweeping the carpet of the room In which it lives is very apt to set the plant coughing, much to the astonishment of persons unfamiliar with its peculiarities. She Hurt His Feelings. "Ixsok here," said the housewife to the match peddler, "you were along here two weeks ago and said you had the best kind of parlor matches to sell." "You speak the truth, mum." "I bought a quarter's worth of you." "I'm saying you did that." "But there's not one that will light. They are positively worthless." The man stood for a moment gazing at her and then a tear rolled down his cheek. "Well, what is it?" she asked. "It's me feolin's, mum. You've hurt 'em to the quick." "How so? "When I sold you them matches T took you for a real lady, but I see that Had you been you would you arc not. have used them for toothpicks and word to humble my said never a pride."

Virtue liv ing, we deplore; When 'lis gone we laud its owner—he's not with us any more. But why lament and deprecate this evil's ceaseless flow, If felons ate not checked by fear of punishment too slow? What hoots an empty code of crime if criminals escape, And Justice walks with leaden heel en tangled in led tape? What use to strive to make a law if you connive to break it? A law can never make the right if wrong is there to shake It. Away will) ponderous statutes made by legislative fools! We need to know good morals and to learn the Golden Rules. We brag about our progress and our great prosperity; Our country boasts herself the glorious Mistress of the Sea; Our soldiers die like white men just to make a brown man free.

And back they come with priceless stuffs —up from the torrid zone, And down from where chill Boreas sits upon his Icy throne. Thus our sailors brave these dangers, true knights-errant of the sea. And take and bring their cargoes—full el profits—faithfully. We're proud our nation's rich and strong and great in force and vim— Yet Want is stalking o'er the land, re sentful, cruel and grim; And Poverty, that heinous crime, deserts the narrow way, And goads us on to dare and suffer everything—for pay! If we would have true Freedom this mad rush for wealth must cease; The juggernaut of Mammon cannot be a ear of peace!

Uncle Sam seems to have gone ex tensively into the coffee business, ac cording to all accounts, for it is said that a Washington cellar is now given over to the purposes of the bureau of plant industry of the agricultural de partment, where there seems to be a constant brewing of coffee in progress. The place is under the supervision of Prof. Lewton, who refuses to di vulge the nature of his work, as do all the other officials attached to the department, but it is said that experi ments are being conducted on a num ber of subjects, drawn from the tramp fraternity, and they are dosed with coffee until they reach a state of nervousness. They are hustled up to Dr. Wiley, who subjects (hem to a series of experiments and measure ments, Sometimes tin* clerks of the depart ment, are pressed into service and launched on to a coffee jag, during which they arc exempt from all re sponsibility for damages to the gov ernment property. During such times there are "high jinks" in the way of reckless pranks played on each other. The coffee experiments have been in progress some time and a great ma-ss of data lias been compiled by Prof. Lewton and will soon be made up into tlie shape of a report—Balti more American.

PERSONALITY OF "AUTOCRAT. 1 Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes Described by One Who Knew Him. Mrs. Rebecca Harding Davis writes of Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes: "Physi cally, he was a very small man, hold ing himself erect—his face insignifi cant as his figure, except for a long obstinate upper lip ('left to me,' he said one day, 'by some ill-conditioned great-grandmother'), and eyes full of a wonderful fire and sympathy. No one on whom Dr. Holmes had once looked with interest ever forgot the look—or him. He attracted all kinds of people as a brilliant, excitable child would attract them. But nobody, I suspect, ever succeeded in being fa miliar with him. I remember one evening that he quoted one of his po ems, and I was forced stupidly to ac knowledge that I did not know it. He fairly jumped to the bookcase, took out the volume and read the verses, standing in the middle of the room, his voice trembling, his whole body thrilling with their meaning. 'There!' ho cried at the end, his eyes flashing, 'could anybody have said that better? Ah-h!' with a long in-drawn breath of delight as he put the book back."
