Beauty the lieu'ity of womanhas its place In history sido by eido with the re corded deeds of thowme, the hero, the states man and thu thlliUnr. Tho once read story of the siege of Troy leaves stronger recol lection on the mind of the sin-passim; love , llness of Helen than of the stormy valor of Achilles; in tho age of Grecian glory rhryno's charms Hliinoout as clearly as the mighty deeds of Alexander, and Cleo patra, the sorcerer of tho Nile, has more security of unending fame thanthd man whodrovober and Antony to death and founded tho lorn; line of Koman Cawtrs. "In praise of ladies dead" the historian has not been singular or alone. Around the form of beauty tlio poet has woven the magic siell of roniantio verse, and, bowing to the general decree, the sculptor lias fa.sh ioued his block of marble along the lines of female uraee. while the painter has more than vied with each and ull to make his canvas tho medium for the immortality of loveliness. i - - - . ,rn mKr . ....

She was the daughter of u poor Irish squire, John Gunning, of Castlu Cooto, Kosconi- mon, in uonnaugui.. i ue mimij and apparently without resource. Hut yet there was a resoiirso left, and Mrs. Gun ning discovered it. It was tho beauty of Eli:saleth and her sister Maria. Iiy des perate exertions the mother secured enough money to take her daughters to Dublin. Thoro tho kindness of Beg Wollington furnished them with invitations to a grand ball at tho castle, and with dresses to wear . on the occasion. The maidens grew famous " In a night and- were the toast of the town) More money was raised, and in 17"i) they went to Loudon.

Now, fully equipped for her battle with the world, who deserted Ler hus band, secured a divorce, and married Sir William Hamilton, the ambassador of Great Britain at the court of Naples. The chronicles of that day ore filled with ac counts of her social triumphs, her Keen wit and intelligence and her superb beauty. She held her own. despite her past, at the court of St. James and on the continent-! until one morning there sailed into port, after victory over England's foes, the fa mous Iord Nelson. The complications aritiiuf? from her subsequent acquaintance with the creat admiral barred her from re spectable circles, and a few years after Nel son's death she passed away at Calais, to MRS. JAMK8 MONROE. which town she fled to avoid her London rri4 1 i tors. Still another woman who was the toast of her day had the fortune to be blessed in her youth with beauty, and also inherited rank. She was "of the purple," and knew nothintr of obstacles such as those which Eiizalieth Gunplngand Emma Lyon were comnelled to overcome.

DAN MASON'S ONLY LOVE. How's, my folks, did you sayf Ah, that question soun's strange to my ears now. Once I had hopes it might o' soun'ed right, but now, now it falls heavy on my heart, an' makes mo think o' times that's gone. It brings 'em all back in my jnine Bill, ther squir, an' Minnie, ther squir's darter; but of 'em all Minnie comes fust. I ain't never hearn er uame I like so well as hern. I use to say it over an' over cause It b'long to her, an' I do tt yit when tnar s uoooay v near ma But it souns so difunt now, nothin' like it use to. After alt, tho', thar's nothin' strange erbout it, cause everything Is difunt now; nothin' looks like it use to. It may De me that's changed. Yes, I 'spect it is. Wall, I had 'noucb to change me, so 'taint surprlslu' after all, you see, when a man puts all his life in somothiu' an' it's all of a sudden took away, it goes kind o' hard. I was out In (Jaliforny wuoa 1 met 'em, an' Squir Duff got mo to go in parnership in ther miuin' bus'uess. All 1 wantea was tuat chance, so we sittled things then an' thar an' went to work. Squir Duff had tber putticst darter I ever seen, an' it never took me long to like her uuthor. She was white an' red all ther time, with long black hair an' little black eves the shinyest eyes I ever seen, too an' was bunt up jtst like a pony. 1 staia at tner house, so me an' Minnie was iu one 'nothera coni'ny right smart With her ban' hol'in' tight to mine wo use to go out under ther trees, sot down on ther roots an' talk ther longest times together. Sometimes I'd help her pick up burrs an' sleh like, what she made pieter frames outer. Our heads would some how git close unbeknownst to us, an' I'd kiss her 'fore I knowed what I was doin'. Any feller would done like me, an'perticlor if they liked her as I did, Ther squir' bad already gin her to mo an' said we mus' lis' wait a year; then we could git marrid. Min was fou'teen an' jis' the kind of a girl to make ther boys likelier, though she didn't 'pear to take to none o' them but me, an' I was glad of it, too. Thar was er crossin' what we had to pass over in goin' ov mornin's to ther mines, an' 'twas gittin' in sich a bad way wo bad to stop an' fix it. Mos' every mornin' she'd go 'long by me far as tber crossin', then go back home to ten' to dinner. I use to wanter go back with her. but that would er bin knockiu' off work 'fore I commenced, so 1 couldn't. Any place she wanted to go I took ber, but that was only natu'al, 'cause she sot a heap o' sto'e by me. an' I knowed thar wan t nothin' la ther worl' I love like her. She was 'bout eg happy over ownm' mo es I was f'r owniu' her, an' she didn't kere who seen us boldin's han's along ther rode, nether. 'Squir Duff tole me I was jes' ther kind o' man he wanted for bis darter, 'cause bo couldn't bear to see her git a bad feller for a husband. She was jes' ther one I wanted 1 know'd 'thout axiu' nobody's odds, an' all I was waitin' for was ther day to roll aroun' what made her fifteen. Then we was goln' to git tber knot tied sura I was all time thinkiu' 'bout how I was goln' to rig up in a bran new allapackcr cote an' pants an' red top boots an' a shiuin' cap. As for Min, thar wau't no tellin' what she'd have, but l spoct- ed ther finest lot o' rigiu' er man ever seen. When ther crossin' was fixed so thar wa'nt no more dancer to go 'crost It, me an' ther squir went on to work at ther mines. We bed struc er vein an' that meant sometmu to us both, but more to mo on 'count o' Min Ther squir got flush an' got her ther finest nag be could git. Every time I had er chance I put in er lick or two o' currla' on Her, an' by an' by she was mos' as shiney es Min'e eyes. Win was tner puttiesc sort o riucr, an when she'd come by ther mines every man would stop work to look at her pretty face. She alwuys loped hard an' loud over ther crossin' so I'd know she was comln', for she know'd how I loved ther sight o' ber. I wan't good lookiu' much inyse'f, an' it made my heart awful light some way or 'outlier to think she liked tber looks o' me lictter'u thor other fellers. Then er gin 'twas 'nougli to make me proud when I know'd that ther on- liest girl in thirty miles er 'bout b'long'd to me. Every piece o' gold I foun' I put it by fer her. Her face was 'fore inlno from morn till night with that Imnsome smile, an' them eyes what was brigh'en air hunk o' gold I bed come a'crost yit. On her ban' she wore ther nicest sort of silver ring I bed give her, an' she always hilt up that ban' so folks could see she wred Dan Mason's present. Every time I looked at It I wished 'twas gold, but 'twas tber onliost kind I could git anywhar near, an' it come off Tom McGin- uises little linger when he sole it to mo. ilut it was a ring, an' that sho had to have. Once I sprained my knee joint an' was laid up two weeks at ther house ther liest weeks 1 ever know'd, too. Most every niinit sho'd come to see how I was gittin' crlong, an' at night she'd talk an' laugh so I'd fergit all erbout ther rackiu' in my knee. bile I was laid up I took some bark from ther big trees an' made a ropt big au' strong. When I got well 'uough Ijnade a swing under ther biggest tree 'roun an' fasten'd er piece o' chain on to it so 'twould rattle. Tber mines was only er little r.-ays off, an' I wanted to know when she was swingin'. w henever I hearn that Cham rat tle I felt hotter to know she liked somethin' I bed fixed, an' ther best times ov all was when we sot in thor together. I sent for her weddin' ring six months b'forehan', so as to Kit it on time. I tried to git her size, but she didn't 'pear to know what ber number was, nor what linger to measure on, so I Jes' tole tber man tor sen' er glrl'i rirg, an' he sont it. It come in three monthi all safe an' well, though tber box what hilt it looked like it had saw a rough rode. I had er hard time to git Mia to try it on, 'cause she said 'twould give us bad luck to war it 'fore ther weddiu'. But to sat'af y me she put it on all her Angers to see what one it fit ther best. It looked too pretty fer nothin' on her mlddlo fluger, so she said she knowed thet was wlior it 'blonged. They more I thought 'bout our weddin' tber harder I worked ; what wared me out at fust seemed notiitn' then. An' when we started home after knockiu' off work ther thought of Miu's waitin' at her gate for her pa an' me made me feel e fresh es if I bad jes rix out o' bed ov er mornin'. It's er uiighta nice feelin' to know thar's somebody waitin' at home fer you, an' wishin' you'd con- gomebodv's smilin' face at ther door. M er amoklu' supper on the hearth. Thar's nothin' like it It make er man thiuk more ... a ther worl' an' ther people in it. It mates bim proud he's livin' au' think more o' God. Out o' all ther minors me a.o' Hqnir Duff was tber onlies ones what hed anybody to think o'bout an' love. We was always in a hurry to git home o' eveniu's, an' never loss no time in talkin' to ther boys. But they didn't kere nothin' Hal 'bout theipeamp, didn't pear to mine If thoy never thar. An' what was their use o" liurrin' to a ole, empty, miaerble lookin' camp! Thar was no door open, no fire burniu', no smell o' grub fryin', no woman's face nor nothin' to go fer. Ilooms was oil littered np, beds every which way fer Minday, pots all sticky, shirts ait' pant baiigin' up evcrwhar, an' so Bianr feet o' ashes in tber fl replace nobody kored 'bout startin' er fire. 1 usto feel sorry fer ther boys, but couldn't help em lesser we gin uin Min, an' we'd er little sooner gin em our necks. Them boys bad ther mos' outda cious patches on their clothes I ever seen. Some ov em sot up till midnight gotten them hunks o' cloth in, au' their han's was so needle stuck they couldn't hardly work. Tber Vquir felt sorry fer them bein' so lone ly, so tole em tor come over an' see blra. They was mighty glad of ther invite an never loss no time in gittin' thar nuther. They looked at Min most of ther time, an1 air one o' them would er sot up to her quick if she'd gin um er half a chance. But she didn't "pear to take no stocx in peruciar to air one an' I was glad ov it, too, for, Lord knows, I didn't want none o' them to take her from ma I wa'nt jealous, but I kop my eye on em all ther time. Them min in' men ain't to be trusted when it comes to atealin' another feller's girl, no they ain't But I can't blame 'em much, fer 1 was nan outer my senses all ther time Min was my girl. Thar wa'nt no days like them, none, none. We was cittlu' er long peaceful like, an' savin' up er heap of gold, when one day thar popped all ov er suaain in tner mines uiu Grilling. He was portly built an' his skin was es white es Min's, and his han's looked like they'd never dun no hard work. Bill was some sort o' far fetched kinry ov ther squir's, an' he hung" 'roun' till he gin him work. He got tired, an' said he wan't used to sich labor- in' an' wan't goin- to uo it Everything went bad after Bill come. Some o ther boys got sick, gold got hard to flue, an' all un us had ther blues. Bill stayed most of his time at the squir's, aud he didn't mine nono o' my -hints to git Ther squir kind o' liked to talk to bim, 'cause he'd been er bout so many places an' had seen so mucb. Bill was better 'peann' and finer lookuv man any man out thar, an' when I Been Min look- in' at him sideways i aiun t like h er uk. My heart would beat like somethin' wile, an' I was uneasy all tber tune, tnougu sue was just ther same to me. He was always seekin' her com'nv. on' sne inougnc er 101 ov wmie skins. I got so 1 never went wnar ue was 'thout bresbin' my face with lime, jes' to make me stan' er better show 'long sidor him. Bill hed lots o' books, an' use to read in tm to Min every day. She liked ther stories he'd tell ber, an' it made me mad 'cause I couldn't read Eood 'nough fer her to listen to. Bill was taean hearted an' was always puttln' high notions in Min's head. I felt like takln' him bv his neck an' ringin' it off every day, an' believe I would fer er littla Ther squir seen, too, how he was sourin' Min on mine life, but onr weddin' was so close we tnougnt it wouldn't make no difference. Bill bad been that er month tryin' to take Min er 'wav from me. I knowed it, an' I begged ber not to go back on me, an' she said she wouldn't, so I thought she was true. Our weddin' day fell on Sat'day, an' all ther boys stayed from work jes' to see us married, every las' one ov 'em 'cept ciu come over to help dress me, an' all gin Min a hunk o' cold for !er present. When I come out Min was standiu' waitiu', an' ther pret tiest pieter. I over seen. Ther boys waved their hats an' hollered loud all but Bill He stood thar lookin' at Min, with his eyes er blaze o' fire. He never heard nothin' nor saw nothin' but Min. She smiled kind of snd liko at me, an' it made me feel like I'd never felt b'fore. In er mlnit Bill come tar in' in, an' slappin' me on ther jaw said he'd hov Min or die. In er minit we was outside llten fer life an' death. Ther boys hollored out thet thor one what whips wins ther bride. I hed mos' kilt him when ther boys pulled me er way, an' went to shoutin' Minnie was mine. An' 'twas true, I'd won her twice. I took her han' an' all ov er suddiu she looked up in my eyes then at Bill Such er look I 'aint never seen in all my Ufa She tried to tell me somethin' an' it seemed to choke her. But d'reckly she said so sorrowful like: "Dan, I never meant to; no, ther Lord knows I didu't Don't thiuk bard o' me, Dan, but I love him." An' 'fore I could say er word she was standin' by Bill. No, I nint got no folks nor nothin', an' all my lifo was kilt thet day. Philadelphia Times. Knew When to Get Off. He was o muscular countryman, and his greatest talent lay in the direction of riding untamed horses. It was a Texas pony, full of tho characteristics of that renowned breed, and standing listlessly by, awaiting the ar rival of some one to try bis mottle. Ho found the animal without a man daring enough to mount it, and at once asked for the job, saying that he bad never yet heard of the borso that could get away from him. The owner's consent was given immediately, and the lxld man sprang into the saddle, and the pony sprang into the air, bounding off liko a rocket, with the man clinging to its inane. Straight down the street the animal sped, and probably the man would have main tained ids reputation had the pony not taken a sudden notion to turn into a cross street This idea occurred to it, and without con sulting the rider the pony wheeled into the side highway, while the rider kept on in the course they were before the change of sched ule occurred to the pony. Tho crowd arrived just as tho man was picking himself up, and were met with the remark, as the man limped toward the drug store: "Bv iimmlny. boys, I b'leeve that dratted horse ud er killed me ef I hadn't er got off when I did." Atlanta Constitution. Spread of the Engl lull Language. At the opening of the present century there were, in round figures, 80,500,000 peo ple who spoke the English language. They were chiefly in England. We were only a few millions in America. The French speak ing people at that time numbered about 31,- 500,000, and the Uermans exceeded ao.ow.uuu. Tho Russian tongue was spoken by nearly 81,000,000, and the Spanish by more than au, 000,000. The French speech is now used by 60,000, 000 people, the German by about 70,000,000, tho Swinish by somewhat more than 40,100,- 000, the Hussions by about 70,000,000, the Italian by about au.uuo.uuu, and tue rortu euese by perhaps 13,000,000. The English language has enormously outgrown its com petitors. It is used by nearly twice as many people as any one of the others, and its rela tive growth is sure to continue. North America alone will soon hr.vn 100,- 009,000 English speaking people. There are 40,000,000 in Great Britain and Ireland.
