Of no iron of doom are two-wheelers aha pen, That sometime a rider nay seem accurjt; Cut the gnawing and weakness of hunger happen, And the throats of the boys are a-dry for thirst. Their seats are as towers from the cares that wither, And seldom Is any struck wan by fear; An emulous rage for race lets hither, And the mode of the wise is clear.

Uprising ti rank with the hale and tba sound; Spirit and seiw go elated on height of it, To compass inlimited miles with it round The sense is most of a spurring scout run, The spirit is much like a joy sublime Of wheel to match and of speed to outrun The speed of the wheel of time. And forth they steer, as a yachting rover For a pleamire raid on the dancing brine, Ani highways carry tneir high horse over To the meads and furrows of corn and sine. For the heart within them of late was busy To loose their souls as a sail unfurled ; They must needs escape for awhile that dizzy, Close toil of the weary world. Too full, they say, is the world of trouble, Too tense with work are oar walks on earth, And we turn for the gala and the relish of double Delight to aspire on our wings of mirth.

Models of the Prehistoric Pueblos of New Mexico and Arizona. New York Evening Post.) , Col. Stephenson, who has for 'several years devoted his time to a systematic research into the modo of construction of the Pueblos of New Mexico ' and Ari , zona, started for the scene of his labors again lately. He will continue the work ot , last summer, and will make n general ethnological collection illustra . tive of the arts among the present Pue blo Indians. One of the more interest , ng features will be a collection of pot tery, of which.these-people make a great variety, skillfully decorated ana of elaborate and tasteful designs. Much of this material will be sent by the bureau to the New Orleans exposition. The National museum, in which the offices and workshops of the bureau are situated, is being rapidly fitted up for the purpose for which it was designated, but there are still odd corners fenced off from the publio gazo. In one of these divisions a number of workmen are en 1 gaged undor the supervision of Mr, Vic I tor Mindelcff, constructing a series of , models of sevon Pueblos of the province of Tuscany. Jheso towns are To-wa, Se-chom-a-vi. Wolpi, Ma-shong-ni-vi, She-pan-el-e-vi, Shi-mo-pa-vi, and O-ral-bo, which were visited by the Spaniards about the year 1540, and are still inhabited by descendants of the Indians i whom Coronado thon saw. These models jare being made from the.most accurate meas urements and plans, supplemented by aketchos and photographs of every de tail which were secured during the field season of 1888. The models are all be ing made to a uniform scale sufficiently Jargo to show distinctly all the minor features of the arohitecture and con struction that have been followed from time immemorial by those Interesting ana seciuaou groups or men. i hey rep resent very faithfully the character of the masonry in color and texture. Many experiments were tried before a substance could be found that would properly represent the originals in this respect, and at last a species of papier macho, the basis of which is tho macer ated greenbacks from the treasury de partment, was hit upon. ' The ; seven towns whieh it is the purpose of Mr. Min , deleft to portray are built upon the mesa or table lands of the mountains of Ari zona, all upon the same plan. Walls of stone cemented with mud support beams upon which boughs and . dried grass are placed and cov ered with a cement of mud. The houses are generally rectangular in shape, and are built to a height of four or nve stories, in the form of terraces, one upon the other. Originally there were no means of ingress or egress upon the ground floor, admission being gained through doors in the second story, reacted by a ladder. Recently, how ever, since the advent of the white man among them, some doors have been cut in the lower stories. The seven models described are nearly completed and will be sent to the New Orleans exposition. All of the models will be sent to New Orleans, and when the exposition closes they will be returned to the National museum. Thev will undoubtedly attraet a great deal of attention, as. they are the only ones of the kind ever exhibited. One of the models was made last year, and is one of the chief objects of inter est in the museum to-day. The seven towns mentioned above are inhabited by the Moquis Indians. They number about 8,000 souls, and are dependent upon agriculture and sheep-raising for their existence. The government makes no provision for the Pueblo Indians in the regular appropriation bills. ftalphar la the Desert.

Scientific American. 1 A generation or more ago tho most admired wood for furniture purposes was mahogony. Until quite recently the taste for mahogony has been held in abeyance, and black walnut has long reigned tne king of the furniture woods. Before mahogony controlled the popular desire, cherry was a favorite, and our white walnut, or hickory, was used to a considerable extent. These old-fash-ioni)d woods are coming into favor again, and very fine effects are pro duced by the contracts of cherry and hickory, and by mahogony and hickory. Mahogony and cherry blesd admirably as shades of color instead of contrasts. The so called "branch" mahogony, that in veneers on the fronts of bureaus and in the frames of mirrors formerly produced such impossible effects of grain, has given place to that of plain, straight grain, tho effect of color rather than of grain oeing desired. Except yellow and black birch and the satin and birdseye maple, there are few of our native woods that show a very distinctive grain. This makes them valuable as foils to the more er ratic grained woods of the tropics. One of these, the coco bolo, of a deep red color, with broad striated grain, works up beautifully with the cherry, making a complement of tints, or with the hickory, showing a contrast of color and of grain. According to tho statement of a prom inent dealer in furniture woods,, our cherry and hickory . aro coming rapidly into demand, and for foreign woods the mahogany and the comparatively little known coco bolo are much called for by makers of fine furniture, carvers, and internal finishers. Lincoln's Favorite Poena. Chicago Tribune. Mrs. L. E. Ilillis, of Elgin, 111., has a copy of tho well-known poem, "O Why Should the Spirit of Mortal be Proud?'' in the-handwriting of Abraham Lincoln. She was once a member of a concert company, which chanced fo put up at the samo hotel with Mr. Lincoln in a western town, when he was a candidate for tho presidency. In tho evening the singers entertained the company in the parlor ; for a timo, and then oalled upon Mr. Lincoln, "My friends," said he, "I couldn't sing a tune, not even 'Old Hundred,' if it were to save my life, but I can reclto a poem for you." Then, stepping to tho other side of the parlor that he might face them all, he said: "I will recite to you what I consider ono of tho finest productions of the English language," and then in an impressive manner recited the poem. As Mr. Lincoln was leaving the room after hia recitation, Mrs. Ilillis asked him who the author of the poem was and whfere it could be found. Lincoln re plied that he did not know. "But," he added, "if you wish it I will writo you out a copy of it." The noxt , morning wnne Mrs. mills was eating her breakfast Lincoln handed her the copy as he had prom ised. It was written op the old-fashioned blue legal cap. Never Saw "Young George." New York Sun. A feeble old darkey struggled" pain fully in. Boss, he said, "Iso an olo, ole man.

Harasses 11 sad Bartholdl's "Lib erty An Bngllsa Account. Chambers' Journal A piece of interesting news came to as from Egypt regarding a discovery recently raaae in Lower Egypt by Mr. Flinders Petrie, of the fragments of a colossal statue of King liameaos II, whioh, calculating the height from the fragments which remain, must have stood considerably over 100 feet in height Tho material employed is gran ite; and the executing of such a work in such a material, and, when com pleted, rearing it into position, "must nave involved a profound knowledge not only of high art, but of engineering skill. Is it possible that the statue could have, boon cut out whole in one piece? If so, what lever-power did the Egyptians possess to raise such an enormous weight into a perpendicular position? Many of our readers will doubtless re member Mr. Pointer's grand picture in the Koyal Academy of London, a few years ago, entitled "Israel in Egypt." It represented an enormous mass of sculpture mounted on a wheeled truck, dragged along by hundreds of the un fortunate captive Israelites, who aro smarting under the whips of their cruel drivers. Mr. Poynter had good au thority for his "motive power" as shown in his picture. So far as we can discover from ancient works or ancient sculpture, tho hugest stone masses were transported niaiuly by force of human muscles, with few mechanical expedients. Levers and rollers seem to have been almost, if not altogether, unknown. The mass was gener ally placed on a kind of sledge, the ground over which it was to pass lubricated with some oily substanco,and tho sheer strength of human shoulders was then applied. The most colossal and by far the most remarkable statue of modern days is that most elaborate and rather eccentric gift of the Trench nation to the people of America. Not only is it remarkable for its enormous height and gigantic proportions, but for tho very singular and ingenious manner in which it has been constructed so singular, indeed, that at first sight it is somewhat dim cult to comprehend tho manner in which it has beon built up, piece by piece, espec tally when we mention that the soveral pieces or copper composing the figure have not been cast How, then, . have they boon made? Ihis we will try to explain. I he statuo is a female figuro of Lib erty, having on her head a crown, and holding aloft in her band a torch. The figure is eighty -five feet high; but, rock oning tho extrome height to the top of toe torch, tne marvelous altitude of 187 feet nine inohos is reached. Tho statue is to be reared on a pedestal of solid granite eighty-three feet high, bo that tne entire work will rise to the immense height of 220 feot nine inches. The artist is M. Bartholdi (tho family name, by-the-by, of the great composer best known as Mendelssohn). Having first carefully constructed a model in clay about iife-sio, this was repeatedly enlarged until the necessary form and size were obtained. The next step was to obtain plaster casts from the clay, and these casts were -then re- troduced by clever artists in hard wood, he wooden blocks were thon, in their turn, placed in the hands of copper smiths, who, by the hammer alone, it is stated, gave the copper sheets the exact form of the wooden molds or models; and thus, in this peculiar and laborious manner, the outside copper "skin" of the statue was formed, and, to all out ward appearance, completed. But as the copper is only one-eighth of an inch thiok, an inner skin Is also providod, placed about a foot behind the first, while the intermediate space will be filled in with sand, especially at tho lower extremities, to give the whole a steadfast foundation. , The stability of tho figure will not, however, be left , to dopond solely on these sheets of copper and loose sand; and, therefore, the interior, from top to bottom, will be strengthened by a frame work of girders and supports, by which the whole will be knit together in one firm, compact, unyielding mass. As the sheets of copper and the interior frame work are simply secured in the ordinary manner by rivets, when it is desired to remove this metallic mountain all that has to be done is to unriveL the several plates and take down and pack 6n board shin for New York. If Mr. Functors Petrie's discovery of the remains of the gigantic statue of Rameses II in Lower Egypt, 100 feot high, of solid granite, ia the largost status of antiquity, the "liberty" of M. Bartholdi mar certainly take rank as tho most coloseal production of modern days. Vrsnok Oksesemakersk Chk-ago Herald.)

At private tables, as well as at the public establishments, the gour mand may be found. There are people whose main object in life is to eat. Speaking of this class of individuals, a well known physician with whom a Star reporter conversed, said: "It is strange that men who use excel lent judgment in other affairs of life, give very little thought to the preserva tion of bodily health. They are given to excesses in eating and drinking ' which completely ruin their digestion The sufferings which some of these men endure are terrible in the extreme. For the sake of pleasing the palato for a brief time they doom themselves to months and years of agony, and finally die miserably." , "Well, doctor, what style of diet would you recommend?" "While I am not a vegetarian in the strict sense of the word, I will say that meat ot most Kinds should be eaten of very sparingly Grease and fat in vari ous forms enter too largely into tho preparations of food for all classes of people. Look at tho menu for a first class hotel, for instance! All of the dishes are reeking with fat, and to add to. their indigestible qualities they aro so highly seasoned with pepper and other condiments that they cannot do otherwise than bring dyspepsia to tho people who put them into their stomachs." , "And when these injudicious people lose their health they furnish business for the physicians. I see no reason why you should complain." -"Ah, there's the rub. These heavy eaters are tho most troublesome patients we have. They expect us to restore their health, and at the same they are continually violating the laws of na ture. , Well, 1 suppose that the inju dicious diet of such people is a godsend to us doctors, for it is a well-known fact that it is the cause of nine-tenths of the sickness. Over-cating and lack of proper physical exercise are faults to which too little attention is paid by the majority of the men and women of this degenerative aee. - One writer describes what ho terms "little octave dinners," where there is enough to cat and drink, and not too much, ana adds-: "The guests are well chosen, and the courses are sent up to time.

The same writer observed that "the Croesus feeding .business is played out; that it only helps millionaires to fritter away their money and gluttons to gorge.

The condimentary value of pepper stands very high, and, among European pooplo, English are jerhaps the most addicted to pepper. This condimentary spice may be procured under the two designations of white and black poppor, the distinction, however, not being in the botany but in t'uo mode of prepara tion. Black and white pepper come from the same plant . All pepper is black originally, but the blackness resides in a superficial skin. If the berry be ground entire, then, of courso, the powder will be dark-colored; but if the cuticle be removed previous to grinding then the powder will have a tint moro or loss approaching white, though never quite white in this consists the only dif ference between white and black pepper. The black pepper plant is indigenous to the East and Wept Indies, and it also grows in Jumat'a, Java, and other islands of the Indian Archipelago. Two crops of berries are produooa in tho year, but tho season of ripening is very irregular. If wholly unadulterated popper is re quired it should Imj bought whole and ground in a domestic mill. Bought in a state of powder it is always invariably adulterated, special ingredients being sold for this purpose. The two chief are known in commerce as P. D. and D. P. D., tho first signifying "popper . dust," and the second "dirt of pepper dust." Both may be described as the sweepings, more or less contaminated, of the warehouses in which pepper is stored. In addition to the ordinary peppers (black and white) of domestio use, there is tinother kind called long pepper. The f ruit of this sort is not shaped as berries, but as elongated cylinders with rounded ends. It is of more use, however, as an ingredient of cattle-medicines than as a condiment for human stomachs. ProinlneUs' at tke market House. Washington Cor. Times-Star.
