Whun Mia Chance Cam* Give butfal'b, O Lord." he prayed, "And I will crave do more: I'll face all dangers unafraid, As martyrs did of yore. No earthly glories. Lord, forme. But grace to strive away Serenely rendering to Thee Some service day by day. "O foolish man to strive and scheme For fleeting rlcbei here; What Is there In gold's yellow gleam That fools should hold it dear? The earthly honors gained by men Last but a fleeting day— Ah, let me waste no moments, then, In seeking tbem, I pray." He woke ODe mornleff to behold A chance for woriaiy gain; Tbe way to «plendor%nd to goll Lay straight and smooth and plait. The glories heaven hides from Tlew To others he resigned. And men could hardly see him through The dust be left behind. Llv* In th* Rraaant A ''live" man respects the twentieth century. He does not think that wis dom died out when its nineteen prede-; cessors departed. His eyes are not in the back of his head. He reads books, but he studies men. Great poets bare, for tbe most part, passed their live«io cities. "Never write a page," aaid the late Lord Lytton to a young Lone' • author, "till you have walked (r-••,. your room to Temple Bar, mingling with men and reading the human face.'" The men who make their mark on the age are those who know it, and sympathize with its life. A professor in a theological seminary confessed that for half a century he had read more Latin than English. He failed to im press his students, for he was obsolete, even while facing them. Gulzot says that Shakespeare's suc cess is due to his masterly knowledge of Ms own age and country, and to the fact that he wrote in a spirit of loyalty to them both. Raphael went about Rosce And Flor ence seeking faces and attitude*: worth reproducing upon canvas. Curran studied iaw during the day. At .night he studied men in the cufltc houees of London, selecting those which "vtere most fertile in game for a character huntar." Napoleon's boast was, "I know men." He disguised himself that he might talk with 6ailors and fishermen. When he wished to study some great subject, he would gather about him those who were authorities on it, and set them ar guing with each other. When be said, "Good night, gentlemen!'' he knew all about all the matter that was worth knowing. Waller Scott would talk with anyone who would talk to him. He visited the fish market at Billingsgate, in order to learn the dialect of the fishwomen. His novels are read to-day because they are true to life, though they are called ro mances. Students who confine themselves to the past are as dead, so far as serving their generation is concerned, as the eras they love. They are almost sure to mourn over the present and to dis trust the future. The former days are to them better than these, and the fu ture is likely to be worse than either. Professor Phelps, in his instructive and interesting "Men and Books," tells a suggestive anecdote about two clergy men, which illustrates the difference in character between tftCstudent of books and the student of men. Thf two min isters, who had been classmates in the seminary, met after a separation of twemy years. Each had had a fair measure of success. "I have had a hard life of it,but I en joy a hard life," said, in a cheery tone, he who bad lived among bis brethren. ''It pays to have a hard life. I have such a glorious trust in tbe future!" "I have had a hard life too," said said the other, who had lived in the dead past, speaking in a mournful tone. •'I try to endure it patiently, but I shall be glad when it is over. Tbe future looks dark, very dark to me. My chief satisfaction is in tbe past." This man was foot sore from walking backward. A few years later he was gathered to his fathers, with whom his mental life had been buried twenty veara." His friend still lives, enjoying his hard life, not growing old. but keep ing his heart young that he may do good work for the men with whom he loves to associate. The past has its uses, but is no place for a man to live in. The apost.e of Burmah, Adouiram Judson, was an old man when he died, full of good works. But his wife, "Fanny Forrester," thirty years his junior, said, "He was tbe Vomigest man I ever knew."' He kept himseif young by his faith in God ami his hope tor man —Ex, THEY SAY That Wenatchee i? overflowing with iiomeseekers from the east.

That the Twenty-sixth Republican Congressional district convention which met in Cleveland last Saturday broke up in a row between the followers of Senator Foraker and the successor of Hanna, SenatoPDick. The police final ly interfered and restored order. When~ the convention split, each party nomi nated a ticket and selected delegates to the National Convention. That Professor Gayley, instructor in English in the California University, created a furor last week among co-ed ucators by saying to a class of a hun dred girls to whom he was reading and explaining the beauties of some new poetry; "If God Almighty or the angel Gabriel wrote a poem it would not inter est you, You are nothing but giggling girls. Half of you ought to be made pay tuition. The class is dismissed." That white capping, a species of crime which has been supposed to be confined to the southern states, has ] broken out in Stevens county. A man by the name of Thomas was called to his door last week by some of his neigh bors who did not like him and bound and gagged- After beating him and warning him to leave the country they left him. He managed to get home and went before an officer and made com plaint against six or eight prominent law abiding citizens and now they are under arre«t, $1 00 Per Year The Origin of Volcanoes According to an exchange the follow ing is a negro preacher's account of the origin of volcanoes: "De earf. ray Men's," he said, "re volves on axels, as we all know. Some fin' is needed to keep de axels greased; so de good Lawd, in His wisdom an' to' sight, dut petrolyum in de bowels ub de earf for dat purpose. De Stan'ard Oil Comp.ny comes along an' strax dat pe trolyum by borin' holes in de earf. De earf sticks on its axels and won't go round no more; dere is a hot box just as ef de earf wuz a big railroad train—an' den, my frien's, dere is trouble." Mark Twain's meveage Mark Twain tells this story of how he got even with a canny lassie who was telegrap operator at Glasgow end of a London line "I bad run up to Glasgow on my war to the Highlands, 1' said Mr. Clemens, ''and stepped into a telegraph and pos tal station to send a dispatch to a friend in London. I asked several questions as to how long it would take, when the Message would be delivered, etc. The girl at the desk was inclined to be snub bUb, and at the third or fourth ques tion she cut me dead. ilßut I got even with her. I just sent ay friend this message: 'Arrived safe ly. ' Girls here ugly and bad-tempered.' And she had to seed it, too;" Jokes by freight Lieutenant Randolph of the United States navy was the center of attraction one evening ait an entertainment given by the British officers at Gibraltar. His witty saying- and anecdotes kept the guests in roar* of laughter. One of the British officers met Randolph the fol lowing morning and said: Lieutenant Randolph, I've been think ing over some of your jokes this morn ing and by jove! Ihey are clever deucedly clever. And Randolph replied, Thanks; I'm , glad youv'e got them at last;by freight. And the Englishmen walked away tap ping his forehead and repeating thoughtfully, by freight. Col. Bartlett, of Georgia, tells of a colored preacher who hates tobacco. On one occasion, meeting an aged brother with a very strong o d pipe in his mouth, lie said: Bruddah Thomas, nothin' unclean kin entah de kingdom. I knows dat well miff.

The White Mouse Stable A bill ii before Congress authorizing the expenditure of ninety thousand dol lars in improving the stable attached to the President's mansion. Congressman Benton, of Missouri, thus attacked the bill in a speech a few days ago: "There are plenty of rich men in this country who live in worse places than ihe President's stables as they now are. These old stables would be a palatial abode to the average American. "First they wanted $60,000 for the new barn, but they've grown brave, in spite of the prevailing economy and now ask $90,000. This is a big sum to spend on the President's 'tistuloed' mountsfor which any stable it good enough. And it is said, too, that the President is the hardest man on a bone who ever bestrode one. He wears 'em out on the granitoid pavements of this town untlPthe hoofs are ridden off. •I —. would not hire one of my horses to him at any price '•You can publish It all over Missouri that lam against those stables. I don't know what the majority of the commit tee is going to do about the matter, but I'm In favor of cutting out $90,000 stable when not a Congressman here can get money for public buildings in any of the good towns of this country.

He eats a hearty supper, but about church time he has another at tack and stays at home. He retires early, sleeps well and wakes Monday morning refreshed and able to go to work, and does not have any symptoms of the disease until the following Sun day.
