"itter Ru4lnp of the One Love Adair Cha rlotte Csabm n, the actress, was in love but once in her life. She met in Cincinnati, where she was playing, an actor named Clark, with whom she tell In love. Through her efforts Clark was advanced to leading man in the com pany, and the course of true love ran smoothly. One night the actress met a strange woman behind the scenes between the acts. The woman came up to her and ad. dressed her thus: "You are Charlotte Cushman. the great actress. IHaven't you got enough men to admlir' you without coming be tween man and wife and robbing ne of my husband?" "Your husbund!" cried Miss Cush man. getting excited. "Yes, and you have taken or you are trying to take him from me," contin ued the ragged woman, looking Miss Cushman full in the face. "Who is your husband?" "Conrad Clark." replied the woman, "the father of this child," pointing to a half starved, thin little child in her arms. Miss Cushman started as It she had been shot. She went through her part that night as usual-acted it splendidly-brought down the house; then, after the per formance, she sent for Clark to come to her dressing room. Clark knocked sad then opened the door. She brought for ward to him his wife and baby, who had been waiting In the dressing room to receive hint. Such a reception! Charlotte Cushman never looked or acted so grandly on the stage in all her life as she did that night in her dressing room. She waved Clark away with a greater majesty than ever as Queen Catherine she waved away Cardinal Wolsey, and then going to her hotel probably she had a good crying spell. But she never loved again. SAYINGS OF THE WISE. The eyes of other people are the eyes that ruin us.-Franklin. If you would know and not be known. live in a city.-Colton. The way of the world Is to make laws, but follow customs.-Montaigne. We carry happiness into our condi tion, but cannot hope to Lind it there. Holmes. Prosperity is no just scale.

Bnergy will do anything that can be done in this world, and no talents, no circumstances, no opportunities, will make a two legged animal a man with out it.-Goethe. Great, ever fruitful, profitable for re proof, for encouragement, for building up in manful purposes and works, are the words of those that In their day were men.-Carlyle. Pedigrees of Arabiam Herse. The Arabs have no written pedi grees. It Is all an affair of memory and of notoriety in the tribes Certain alleged pedigrees of Arabian horses, couched in romantic language and rep resented as carried in a small bag and hung by a cord around the animal's neck, have been published. but these are forgeries got up probably by horse dealers. Egyptian, Syrian or Persian. The breeding of every horse Is a mat ter of common knowledge, and it would be impossible for his owner to fabricate pedigree so as to deceive the natives, even it he were so inclined. The Bedoulns, it seems necessary to admit, are in general great lIars, and they will lie (to a stranger) about the age, the qualities or the ownership of a horse, but they will not lie shout his pedigree, ,cven when they can do so with Impunity, To be truthful on this subject Ile almost a matter of religion, certainly a poInt of honor hi the des ert.-Atanutlc Aatmais That Delight to Play. In animals the faculty of amusement awakes very early. Our four footed friends seem to he aware of this and make it a part of their parental duties to amuse their young. A ferret will play with her kittens, a cat with hers, a dog with her puppies. A mare wIll play with her foal, though tbe writer has never seen a cow try to amuse her calf nor any birds theIr young, If their mothers do not amuse them, the young ones Invent games of their own.-Lon don Tit-Bits. The C.Id..m ef 5pese. Away out In space Is a cold so Intense that we fairly fail to grasp Its mean ing. Perhaps 300 or 400 degrees below the freezing poInt of water, some phi losophers think, are the dark recesses beyond our atmosphere- And night and day, summer and winter, this insati ate space is robbing us of our heat and fighting with demoniac power to re sue. oar globe to Its own bitter ehill - ettec Left twanea.

It seents a strange thing to say, but there are three Dutch languages in South Africa. The earliest Dutch set tlers at the Cape were largely Dutch sailors and others belonging to the low. er orders of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and other Dutch seaports. Their lan guage was a low Dutch dialect to be gin with, and although the sprinkling of Dutch officers at the Cape did their best to preserve the language of the Netherlands they could not prevent the dialect of the settlers from still further degenerating into a mere collo quial patois. Its degeneration was doubtless largely brought about by do mestic servants and slaves-Ilotten tots, Malays and Mozambique Kaffrs who spoke It very imperfectly and In troduced into it many strange words and id:onas. This, then, is the genesis of what is variously known as "Cape Dutch," "Kitchen Dutch." "Patriot Dutch," "Afrikaans" and "Afrikander Taal." Its bails is Dutch, but the nouns have lost their declensions and the verbs their conjugations, while grammatical gender and syntax gener ally have gone by the board. To the educated Hollander of today it is a lit erary atrocity. and he cannot away with it, but to the Afrikander it is his mother tongue, the language of his home and his childhood, the expenest of all that be knows of humor and pathos. It Is full of expressive Idioms, pithy proverbs and pswky expressions, like those so dear to the lowland Scot, and yet it is not a language, for it has no literature. The seend of the three Dutch lan guages referred to might be called "ec clesiastical Dutch," or, If you like, Af rican Dutch. It is the language of Hol land as that language was written about 200 years ago. It is the language of the Dutch Itible and very much re sembles our o".% a auntorized version in Its simplicihy altd directness of style. It is the lbnna1:ge of the Dutch psalm and Gesarg buons and of the devotion al works of old Dutch divines, which make up the balance of the Dutch farmers' literature. In it are also writ ten many tracts and a few devotional works by living ministers of the Dutch Reformed church. To the Boer wherev er you find him it is the language of his church and of his religion. This is the Dutch language which the leaders of the Dutch Afrikander party are de termined to preserve. It is never spo ken by Afrikanders among themselves, however, and it is never written gram matically by them in their correspond ence. The Boer has no fear that his "Suis-taal," Cape Dutch, will die out, but fears that his children will forget or neglect to learn the language of his church and of his forefathers. The third Dutch language might be called modern literary or "high Dutch" -that is, the lsnguare written and spoken by educated Hollanders of to day. It is florid, Involved In construc tion and very artificial In style as com pared with the language of the Dutch Bible. Its pronunciation bas also changed coraiderably in the Interval, and even an educated Dutch speaking Afrikander listening to a voluble Hol lander can hardly make head or tall of what he is saying.-Scotsman. A Legesd About Cats. The ancient Greeks thought that all creatures except cats had souls and that that niumal lost its soul throughi'a bargain made between a bridge archi tect and the devil. The architect had besought the devil to get his help in constructing an exceedingly dangerous bridge structure, and his Satanic maj esty only consented to lend aid on con dition that the first creature to cross it should lose Its soul. This was agreed upon, the bridge Snished in due time and the devil sent to the opposite side to await his prey. The shrewd architect took good care to send a cat over before any human be ing was allowed to cross. On learning of the bargain the cat recrossed the bridge and scratched the archltect's eyes out. _____ Esems~a a Yew.. According to a local tradition, proba bly Invented, Saryvllie, N. Y., received Its name in a peculiar fashion. The settlers were gathered in debate upon the shore, trying to agree upon a name for the place, and one after another proposed his suggestion with, "Say, how 'll this do?" After many suugss tions had been rejected some one bar ren of imagination but sensitive of ear proposed that the oft repeated word "Say" ho made the first myliable of the name and that "yulle" ho added as the second syllable. The idea took, and, says the legend, then and there the settlement was christened Sayville. Vavered the Clerlaet., "So y'en gemn' ty make yer by a mu. alden," said Mr. Raferty.

A vllas makes ase metub@ but a hrelate Is a heap Beas GF he is plnded on In a scdanmage."-Wauhla torn Star, Ancenet Sausages. Antiquarles are battled in their at. tempts to ascertain when sausages first became an article of human consump tion. We know at least that among the sancent Greeks as usages, called "al lautes" and "chordal." were a common article of diet, aol every schoolboy knows. or ought to know, that sau sages, black put'din~gs and sausage sell ers appear in the eomn,'ties of Aria mphanes.-LouiOon Telegraph. *lap07.
