Of all the words of grief and woe where mis
ery doth dwell
The saddest Intonation lies within that one—
It serves to sever souls for aye, for who is there
oan tell
If hearts will ever meet again when onoe they
say farewell?
It carries not A tone unkind; no wrath does it
'Tis breathed from out the bosom's depth, that
deep, that long farewell.
The aching heart is rent in twain and lies a
shattered shell;
Then, with a longing, anguished cry, it says its
last farewell.
—Sir Walter Scott.
Tom Barrett and I had been chums
almost as long as we had been cousins,
which I must confess was nearly twenty
four years. Tom was six months younger
than I, and I ruled him with a rod of
iron. But one day—the day when I
became twenty-four years old—the
worm turned. He told me that he loved
"Of course," I remarked coolly. "I'm
your relation, I guess. got to."
And then he burst out with a lot of
stuff about his not loving me as a rela
tion, but as a wife.
"Tom Burrett," I said sternly, "do
you think I would ever marry a man
six months yonnger than myself? I have
brought ycu up, and you know it. If I
ever many anybody it will be a mature,
ready marie man, who will guide and
control and make me respect him!
Don't you ever say another word to me
about this as long as you live." *
And I went up stairs and cried because
my old Tom was gone.
One of my birthday presents had been
a check for twenty-five dollars with
which "to take a little trip," my blessed
old uncle said, and I decided just to run
down to Ann Arbor on that excuse and
stay as long as I wanted to with my old
friend, Orpha Reynolds. I might join
some classes or do some reading and be
contented there for a long time—until
Tom had forgotten. And with a tele
gram to Orpha the next afternoon I was
Orpha was delighted to see me.
"I am so glad you came just now," 6ho
said as we sat together in the half dark
after supper. "I shall need you to help
me manage Ed."
"Ed who?" I inquired with some sur
prise, wondering if Orpha had been
adopting ail infant. My friend seemed
a trifle embarrassed.
"Why, E 1 Rice," she answered slowly.
"I guess I haven't told you about him,
have I?" No, I guessed she had not.
"He is a young boy in the la w depart
ment," she went on with a conscious air,
"who rooms next door. His eyes have
given out temporarily, so that Dr. Car
row has forbidden all college work, and
I have just been trying to amuse him
and keep him out of mischief." All this
was certainly very nice and philanthropic
and quite like Orpha, but what on earth
was she blushing al>out? I waited for
her next words, She spoke very fast
and would not look at me.
"1 wish you would take him off my
hands for awhile—you won't have much
else to do. I hate to be yrith him much
my* elf, he ha 3 been acting so for a week j
or two. I'm afraid he is beginning to
think he cares for me—especially, you
know. Ho doesn't of course—such a
kid!" with scornful emphasis and an al
t< gether unprecedented lapse into slang.
"How old?'* I inquired concisely, with
mental visions of a big headed, owl eyed
infant prodigy bearing i law folio under
each arm.
"Oh, twenty-two, or maybe twenty
three," she returned nonchalantly. "But
that for a man is mere infancy. Now a
But this valuable philosophical disqui
sition was abruptly cut short. A sub
dued stamping and shaking was heard
outside—it had been snowing all day—
and we set listening until some one
banged the p.treet door behind him and
started up stairs three steps at a time,
whistling under his breath. "That's
y Ed," said Orpha and rose to light the
lamp, but she had only just scratched
the match when there was a fdiut
knock. The sitting room door was <
slowly pushed open, and a clear, boyish
voice exclaimed:
"Just lighting up? You're late, aren't
"Yes," said Orpha, turning up the
wick. "Just wait till wo have some
light on the subject and I'll introduce
you to au old friend of mine who came
this afternoon from Grand Rapids. Miss
Barrett, Mr. Rice," she concluded.
Ho bowed stiffly and murmured the
conventional happiness; then, with a
sudden, frank impulse, walked over and
shook hands heartily, showing as he
smiled two unmistakable dimples in a
sensitive, extremely attractive face.
Ho had been there an hour, though it
did not seem half that, when Orpha sent
him home. She had to bdhn out a
French grammar lesson-for an eight and
a quarter the next morning, so I went to
bed and left her swearing at Dupy in a
pious sort of away.
Really I iM not mean to relieve Orpha
of her young mission, but how could 1
help it. Under Orpha's orders he cheer
fully pointed out to me the professional
residences, the frathouses and all the
other inevitables; conducted me over
the museum, the library, the art gallery
and the laboratories; dragged me around
the boulevard to Cascade and School
girls' glen, to Lovers' retreat, and final
ly even to the sable fortune teller's on
the Observatory road. In return I im
parted to him all my little botanical
lore and allowed him to join my daily
constitutionals, so that every clay, wet
or dry—generally wet. in Ann Arbor, you
know —we sallied forth together in
scorch of " ecimens" and exercise.
1 got acquainted with Ed very fast
these days, and as I came to know him
better I grew infinitely disgusted and
enraged with Orpha for failing so en
tirely to appreciate him, but I dared not
say a word for fear of ruining w hat lit
tle chance Ld might still have with her.
Be fore a month had passed Ann Ar
bor had laid li*r npell upon me. I deter
mined to ?tay out the year anyhow, do
ing full college work, and it might be
that I would even complete a regular
course. So at the beginning of the sec
ond semester I entered as a "special."
Ed was now allowed, conditionally, to
attend lectures, and so on both sides our
time for walking and scientific investi
gation was much curtailed. We still
found time, however, for a short daily
tramp, and as spring came on for fre
quent longer excursions. The beauty of
May days was wholly irresistible, so that
even our sober minded and church go
ing Orpha was induced to spend one per
fect Sunday morning with us in a quiet
wood strewn thick with spring beauties
and adder tongue. She confessed after
ward that at first she thought it was
wicked, but when we got there she knew
it wasn't.
Well, with botanizing and tennis and
examinations the last days of this blessed
year slipped past.
The Saturday before commencement
Ed and I went up the river for orchids.
We found only a few yellow ones, but
could not feel much disappointed. The
sky and the river would have made up
for a much greater loss. We drifted
back almost in silence, listening to the
soft plash of the water against the boat,
the dreary whispering of the trees on the
bank and at intervals the faroff cry of
a hawk.
Presently Ed interrupted it all.
"I want to give you something be
fore you go," he announced suddenly.
"May I?"
"Why, yes, if it isn't too valuable," I
answered priggishly in a desperate at
tempt to be proper.
"I assure you it is absolutely worth
less unless you care for it," and he dex
terously tossed a long, folded paper into
my lap. Another of the legal jokes he
was always laboriously perpetrating!
Yes—a deed this time, carefully filled
out, except a short blank space near the

"Orpha!" he echoed. "She wouldn't
have it; von know she wouldn't. And
besides'' added the audacious youth,
"sli6 aas i t jtaid mo the 'consideration'
moi timed therein."
" Veil, goodness knows 1 didn't sup
pose I had, either, Ed. But—whatshall
I do with this?"
"You might just write your name in
the space I left for it," lie suggested.
I didn't quite dare to.
I leaned my chin upon my hand, looked
into tiie water and thought. But Ed's
face floated persistently between me and
all prudential considerations. "He is a
year younger than you. What about the
mature 'ready made man' whom you as
sured Tom you should marry? What
will Tom say? And how supremely ri
diculous and inconsistent! Refuse Torn
because he wasn't old enough and marry
a man six months younger than ho and
twice as boyish looking! But, if I choose
to lie inconsistent, whose business is it
anyhow." I would not reason. 1 would
not "consider." I shot a swift smile np
into Ed's anxious face and then with my
fountain pen traced in round deliberate
characters across the space he had left—
Kate Marion Barrett.
1 have the old deed yet. Since our
marriage it has lain in state, the sole oc
cupant of a convenient pigeonhole in my
writing desk. Here I often run across
it and smile as I wonder whether in
dear old Ann Arbor, fragrant with the
memory of countless student romances,
the momentous question was ever he
fore or since asked and answered in such
unpoetic fashion. But Ed and 1 don't
care. We have had our poetry since.—

SpidtTH* Webs for Telescopes.
The astronomers of the naval observa
tory have looked all over the world for
spiders' webs, bncli gossamer filaments
spun by industrious arachnids are util
ized in telescopes for cross lines extended
at right angles with each other across
the field of view, so as to divide the lat
ter into mathematical spaces. Threads
of cobweb are employed for the purpose
because they are wonderfully strong for
their exceeding finenen, and also for the
reason that they are not affected by
moisture or temperature, neither ex
panding nor contracting under any con
Specimens were obtained from China
because it was imagined that the large j
spiders of that country would perhaps i
produce a particularly excellent quality '
of web. However, it was found that the I
best web is spun by spiders of the United j
States, such as are plentiful in the neigh- |
borhood of Washington. Accordingly
expeditions are made early in June each
year to get from the fences and barns
hereabouts the cocoons of the big "tur
tle back" spiders. Each cocoons is com
posed of a single silken filament wound
round and round, though there are apt
to be some breaks in it where Mistress
Spider left off work for a time.
Attempts have been made to use the
cocoons of spiders like those of silk
worms, and exquisite fabrics have been
manufactured from them. Unfortu
nately it was found impossible to make
tiie industry a commercial success, ow
ing to the combative inclination of these
creatures. When kept together they
will always gobble each other up in a
short time, the final result being a sin
gle very large and fat spider and one t
cocoon.—Washington Cor. Boston Tran- j
He Had Been Flung at a Widow, and It
Was Ton Much.
There was a queer, little old man at
the Central market the other morning
who took a huckster into his confidence
after a bit and said:
"I'm a-thinkin of gittin married agin.
Seems to bo lots o' wimen in Detroit and
I didn't know but what you might rec
ommend me to someone."
"Purty old. ain't you?" queried the
"Oh, no. I hain't but four days over
seventy-two and that's only middle aged.
Why, fellers eighty years old are step
ping off every day!"
"Want a gal or widow?"
"A widder. No gals fer me. Gals
ain't settled in their minds, you know.
Just kinder fling mo at some widder
about forty years old."
"Might have a little, but her lovo nnd
society is the main object. Want some
one to kinder pat l.ie on the back when I
feel lonesome, you see."
The huckster gave him the address of
a widow on Champiain street who used
to have a stall on the market, and asked
him to como back and report how he was
"You bet I will!" chuckled the old
man. "Mebbe I'll have you go with me
to pick out the engagement ring—eh?
I'll be back in an hour."
He was back in twenty minutes. He
was carrying collar and necktie in one
hand, and holding his buttonless vest to
gether with the other.
"Hi! How did you come out?" called
the huckster as he got sight of him.
"Sir, are you talking to me?" demand
ed the old man, with great dignity.
"Of course I am! Was it a go?"
"Sir. I never saw you before in my
life, and you keep your distance or I'll
have you run in!" hotly exclaimed the
old man as 10 walked on and revealed
the fact that his coat was split up the
back and one boot heel was missing.
"How about the ring?" shouted the

He turned an appealing glance upon

A Christmas Killing;.
A young married man living on a
fashionable street who wanted to make
himself of some use in domestic affairs
bought a live turkey for the family
Christmas dinner and undertook to chop
off its head. As the weather was cold,
instead of killing the turkey outof doors
ho took it into the kitchen and with
block and hatchet heroically decapitated
it. The whole household had been sum
moned to witness his skill as an execu
tioner. No sooner was its head off than
the decapitateil turkey gave chase to
members of the family.
Out of the kitchen into the dining
room, and up on the table, and into the
sitting room, and into the parlor, and
! onto the furniture and against the cur
tains, and out into the hall, where, in an
; exhausting effort to climb the front
stairs.it yielded to the inevitable, turned
over on its hack, gave a few last protest
ing kicks, and died. But there wasn't a
drop of blood left in that bird's body.
It had bled copiously, and had literally
painted the lower part of the house and
a good portion of the furniture and the
carpets and the curtains and the wall
paper a genuine turkey red. That young
married man has a long life before him
and a lovable wife to share it with him,
but she has now this terror hanging over
"John," she said, "if ever you again
do such a thing as to cut off the head of
a live turkey in the house I'll—l'll look
for a more sensible man when 1 marry
again."—Saratoga Cor. New York Sun.

This collection was made by Dr. H. 11.

who has been steadily adding to it ever
since. Quite recently I)r. Behr presented
to the academy, which means the people
of California, the accumulated riches re
sulting from bis labors of nearly half a
Previous to 1844, Dr. Bebr made an
other collection which he presented to
the Duke of Saxony-An halt. It is now
in the museum at Kothen, Saxony. The
oldest butterfly in Dr. Bohr's later col
lection was caught in Batavia in 1844.
Since this date tlie enthusiastic scientist
has pursued his researches in Europe,
the East Indian archipelago, Manila,
the Sunda islands, the Capo of Good
Hope, the Isthmus of Panama, Brazil.
Mexico, Australia and the United States.
By exchanging with other collectors he
has obtained specimens from all parts of
the known world. Some of the finest ,
and rarest are from the Amoor river, j
The collection includes nearly 20,000
specimens, of which about 0.000 are still
unclassified. The number of determined
species is 4.901. Of these 1,200 are Cali
fornian.—San Francisco Chronicle.
A New I'otttofllre Experiment,
Let no man Bay that St. Martin's le
Grand has not taken enterprise to its
bosom. That much criticised depart
ment has just begun to experiment with
a sort of automatic postofflce, and the
front of the Royal exchange has been se
lected as a likely place for it. It is a
further extension of the great principle
of tlio penny in the slot. You drop in
your penny, and in return you get an en
velope and a correspondence card. At
the Bame time a bell is automatically
rung in tlio nearest postoffice.
You write your urgent message on the
card, put it into the envelope with the
fee, at the rate of threepence a mile, and
drop the communication into the letter
box. A messenger arrives in a few min
utes and takes the letter to its destina
tion by omnibus, railway or cab. This
is a capital idea, likely to bo especially
useful in so busy a locality as the Royal
exchange. But if it succeeds there, it
ought to he, and no doubt will be, ex
tended to other places in London.—St.

of tlio greatness of the show have been
exported from America that a feeling of
doubt as to where fact left off and fancy
began has been in many minds. Mr.
Dredge's lecture and Mr. Dredge's magic
lantern slides, however, put it beyond a
doubt t' it the show will he almost as
big as it is painted. The buildings them
