I would say, in stric'tess, that all right Poenms are; tha:t whatsoever Is nlit sung is properly no Poem. but a piece of Prose cramped into jingling lines, to the great Injury of the grammar, to the great grief of the reader, for the most part! What we want to get at Is the thought the man had, if he had any: why should he twist it into jingle, If he could speak it out plain ly? It is only when the heart of him is wrapped into true passion of mel ody. and the very tones of him, as. cording to Coleridge's remarks, be come musical by the greatness, depth, and music of his thoughts, that we can give him right to rhyme and sing; that we call him a Poet, and listen to him as the Heroic of Speakers, whose speech is Song.-Carlyle. Curious Scales Used In Ecuador. A short stick carrying a suspended pan at each end and held up by a cord about the center is the common trade balance of Ecuador. The weight is a rock about the size of a man's fist, and, while no two of the stones are ever the same size, the merchant is always prepared to pledge his honor that the stone weighs a full and exact pound. The price for a commodity is almost never fixed, and as the Ecu adorean is always prepared and ex pects to come down somewhat from his first price, it speaks worlds for his optimism that he invariably tries to get more. The bargaining does not actually begin until you have dis regarded the first figure and asked, "What is the last price?" Poor Spellers, Take Heart. The poor speller should receive comfort from the recent words of a professor of English in a local uni versity. "The perfect speller Is born, not made," he said. "One frequently finds persons of great erudition who have trouble spelling such a simple word, for example, as 'rabbit.' Cer tain others seem to have a gift for spelling, even without a knowledge of the rules to guide them. Why that is, I cannot say. It is closely akin, I think, to what is known as an ear for music or a peculiarity retentive memory for figures. I dare say it can even be inherited. Spelling is one case in which education plays but a minor part."-New York Sun. Gipelsa of All Bleeds. Not all the gipsies now living ih Europe belong to one and the same race. It seems that at all times every nation has had a nomadic element, a remainder of the original nomadice instinct. A good many tribes of Ital ian zingras are of pure Roman blood. The Spanish gitaneo are of Moorish extraction. There are thousands of Croatlans and Slavonlans roaming through the Balkans in gipsy fashion. The Romanichels is France are most ly of Alsatian origin. The ,gipees of England are as much Welsh as they are Irlish, and the number of Gaelic or Celtic words in their language rivals any group of other words which they use. Poe as a Remaneer. The reader who chanced in youth to come upon one of Poe's finer stories is not likely to have forgotten its Im pression on his unjaded sense of mys tery and beauty. Nor am there many who is mature years, and in this hey day of the short story, first become acquainted with te "Tales of the Grotesque and the Arabesque," but must realise the power of their con juring charm. Taken together they are the fullest exhibit of their author's genius if not their highest; and If the highest is to be sase is his poetry, which fairly may be debated, the prose tales with their greater volume and diversithy loe nething l comparlamr Fruits and Vegetables.
