VvLcn murky clouds that pail a summer day lo, ere its close, diMiolve and drift away, Vtat joyoua smiles break o'er the sunlit plain. How stirs the dormant pulse of life again! And in the afterglow of fading light There breathes a promise of a morrow bright; So at this century's eventide whose years Vain hopes have wrought to merge in darken ing fears Doth man rejoice; for from a rifted west Assuring rays beam 'cros his weary quest. Dull, leaden ekies now change to gladdening . hues; The waiting heart its cherished song renews; That song divine! not less its power than when Twas first heard "Peace on earth, good wilJ to men." Gilbert S. Fletcher In New Nation. Music, WeLsk and Basque. Having two American friends stop ping with us, we brought a nice Welsh girl from Dolgelly one evening to sing to them the national songs. Miss Madge Roberts, a sweet, pretty young lady and excellent singer, went over an immense repertory of Welsh music, and Miss S., who is a very scientific musician, made many remarks on the peculiarities of the Welsh scale, etc. Suddenly she ex claimed: "I cannot think what music it is that I know that these Welsh tunes so rrfuch resemble. Stay, it is Basque!" and she proceeded to hum three or four typical Basque songs. Miss Roberts and all of us instantly recognized the similarity of these with the Welsh, es pecially the oldest Welsh, songs which she had been singing. Miss S. was very much surprised when I told her that Professor Boyd Dawkins believed in the original identity of the Basque and pre-Celtic Welsh, a theory of which she was quite ignorant, so that her testimony to the similarity of the national mnsic was entirely spontaneous. I am not musical, and my opinion is of no value, but there does appear to me to be in the old Welsh music, as in a great deal of the Welsh character, a dis tinctly non-Aryan spritelike character, irreducible to the order so dear to the Saxon soul. The music goes on for a few bars with even, exaggerated em phasis on time as in a soldier's march; then suddenly, as if tired of it, bounds off among the bushes, hop, skip and jump and never comes back! London Academy. Stopped the Miracles. The tomb of Saint Etienne de Muret. canonized in 1038, in the Abbey of Grandmond, was so great an offender on account of the number of miracles that the religious were completely worn out by the rush of votaries. The prior devised, however, a very simple but ef fective remedy for this grievance. Be taking himself to the tomb, he spake as follows: "Servant of God, you preached to us the delights of solitude and yet you assemble in our retreat as many people as if it were a market or a fair. Wo are sufficiently persuaded of your sanctity not to be curious about your miracles. If, then, you will not leave off working them, we protest and declare on high, in virtue of the obedience we have promised you, that we will un earth your bones and throw them into the river." As might be expected, the threat was sufficient, and Saint Etienne de Muret did no more miracles. All the Year Round. A Useful ratrol Wagon. A useful patrol wagon has been de vised for electric railroaders. It is con structed very much like a police wagon, but has a square tower rising out of it which is mounted by a ladder. The( tower is raised or lowered by means of a : crank and pulley, and when elevated to its full extent it is fifteen feet high. The consequence is that the lineman can drivo under the wire to be repaired and be immediately placed by the raising of the tower on a level with his work. The patrol wagon is a great improvement on the old method of repairing, without its risks. Exchange. Shakespeare's Autograph Worth SI 00,000 "The most valuable autograph in the world is that of Shakespeare," said a dealer. "There are only three genuine autographs of Shakespeare in existence, and those are altogether out of the mar ket. Bring me a genuine Shakespeare and I'll undertake to pay you $50,000, yes, $100,000, for it within a year. It might not sell immediately for a very largo sum, but it would be sure to do so as soon as collectors were satisfied as to its genuineness and became properly ex cited about it." Collector. A Liberal Offer. Seventeen years ago a young man in Chicago found a pocketbook containing several thousand dollars. Now, having made nearly a million dollars clear from this find, he advertises for the loser and expresses his "willingness to pay for the IKKketbook and restore the amount of ; the contents." Philadelphia Ledger. When Taking Down the Store. In taking down the stove, if any soot should fall upon the carpet or rug, cover quickly with dry salt before ' sweeping, and not a mark will be left. -New ork Journal. An acre planted with sunflowers yields 2,000 iKunds of seeds, from which 250 pounds of oil may be obtained. Ten million quarts of this oil is produced by Russian mills annually. Very striking to a stran-'er is the ; Englishman's fashion of covering his face with his tall hat as soon as he has taken his seat in his pew in church. The Hindoo makes his toes work at the loom, using them in his wea ring op erations with almost as much iexterity as he does his fingers. A race of wild dogs is said to exist ia Newfoundland, keeping near the coast and subsisting on what the sea casts to the shore. A white headed vulture which was caught in 1T06 died in the aviary at Schonbrun, near Vienna, in 1S24. Being impermeable to air newspapers form excellent envelopes 'or vessels con- taining ice and fresh liquors. A Paris Tfleplicuc Company. In Paris the idea of r-ntrtrtp.irtu:cnt by telephone has been m laructiopcd that a company has been formed to provide a theater telephone service. Instruments are placed in clubs, hotels, cafes and restaurants, and various performances are constantly on tap. By dropping a half franc into a slot the vicarious thea ter goer obtains communication with his favorite playhouse for five minutes, and if he times his connection properly he can hear the song which has become the hit of the season at a very small charge. A private service of a similar nature is also contemplated, and before long it will be quite natural for a host to give a theater party in his own drawing room. There is always a peculiar fascination for the general public in listening by meaiid of the telephone to entertain ments which are given at a distance. One of the most attractive features of electrical exhibitions is always the tele phone section, where a number of tele phones provide entertainments "on tap" from theaters and concert halls. This was particularly noticeable at the Paris electrical exhibition held some years ago, and at the Lenox lj-ceum in New York. The telephone section was crowd ed all the evening with delighted listen ers. -j-El ec trici ty. The Struggle for Dread in Vienna. The distribution of bread to the poor of Vienna took place Tuesday between 11 o'clock and noon, in order to make sure that only the unemployed received alms. Though 6,200 large loaves, which had cost 1,200 florins, or 100, were given out, several hundred starving peo ple had to go away empty handed. The scenes witnessed were perhaps the worst that have occurred as yet. It was piti able in the extreme to see wretch edly clad women, with babies in arms, and children, fighting as for their lives for a loaf of bread, into which, hot as it was from the bakery, they cut like hun gry wolves. Similar scenes were witnessed at the distribution of bread to men. About twenty people fainted in the crush, and those who saw the bitter disappointment of the many who, after waiting for hours, finally received nothing, will never forget the spectacle of human misery and want. Four thousand two hundred loaves were given away yester day, when the crush was so enormous that a number of poor women, with ba bies in their arms, and several old men fainted away and required medical at tendance. Vienna Cor. London Stand ard. A llig Ferry on Lake Michigan. A marine experiment of great impor tance to Milwaukee is announced. The Toledo, Ann Arbor and Northern Mich igan railroad is about to build a large ferry steamer to test the feasibility of carrying trains of cars across Lake Mich igan from Kewauneo to Frankfort. The new steamer will cost a quarter of a million of dollars, and will be large enough to carry forty freight cars, and she is to be fast enough to make the runs across the lake between the points named in about five hours. The distance is sixty miles. The ferrying of cars in this manner will result in a great saving, as it costs from six to twelve dol lars a car to make the transfer of freight from the cars to the steam ers, and besides, the loss through break age incident to such transfers will be prevented. It is thought the experiment will prove successful, as freight trains have been thus transferred for years be tween Cape Charles City and Newport News, a distance of forty miles, across the mouth of Chesapeake bay, where the water is sometimes very turbulent. Milwaukee Wisconsin. An Imperial Chemist. Prince Lucien Bonaparte has be queathed to England his precious collec tion of mineral and chemical products. This collection contains specimens of the very greatest value on account of their rarity, among these being pieces of gold and platinum which are absolutely pure. But the gems of the collections are two specimens of those exceedingly rare metals irridium and germanium. The former, which is worth three times the price of platinum, is as large as a horse chestnut. As to the piece of germanium, although smaller in size, its enormous value will be understood when one re flects that it is worth sixty times its weight in gold. The whole collection was prepared in the prince's laboratory, he making the most difficult experiments with his own hands, for he was one of the most dis tinguished chemists of the day. It is interesting to note that his chief and al most his only assistant in his chemical researches was his wife, the princess. New York Herald. Two Strange Fish. Two strange fish were taken in a trawl off the coast of Maine recently. One, the lamphis, is the only specimen of the kind ever taken in eastern waters. In shape it was like a very large sun fish, and its weight was about 300 pounds. Its back was of a beautiful sky blue, the sides were snowy white, and the fins scarlet. The other fish, the ecolar of the Ca nary islands, is common in warm lati tudes, but has never before been taken so far north as in this case. Both were taken at a depth of 1,000 feet. Belfast Age. Forty-eight ton3 of supplies were hauled from Berlin Falls, N. H., to Danforth's camp, a sportman's resort at Lake Parmachenee, Me., this season, at an expense of f 1,000. The hunters who visit Parmachenee live high, and some of them have a sweet tooth, for GOO pounds of candy disappeared there last vear. There was quite a heavy fall of snow in Mobile Thursday, an event of great rarity and of equally great interest to the inhabitants. It was the first snow in five years and the fifth in seventy years.
