I have traveled round the world. Northward eighty-one degrees; I have seen ice mountains hurled Into stormy, Burscing seas. To the summit I've ascended Of the highest Alpine peak; And one day my way I wended From Ceylon to Mozambique. I've explored with learned sages Parthenons and temples Doric; And seen relics of the ages That we call the prehistoric. I'm at home in Home and Venice, Paris, London, Aberdeen; And I've danced and played lawn tennis With the daughter of a queen. I have seen the Arab manly Entertaining in his tent; Traveled all the way with Stanley Through the darkest Continent; Scaled those wondrous, storied cellars In our own New Mexico, Where the people called cliff dwellers Lived so many years ago. Yet in all my journeys never Have I sutTered harm's attack: Never coach or car whatever That I boarded left the track. Never was I vexed or daunted At hotel or foreign station. For the ear in which I jaunted Was my own imagination. J. Ellis Joy in St. Nicholas:. Climatic Changes. The chancres of terrestrial r.limntfi have been many and various. Myrtles and tree ferns once flourished in Green land; coral insects built on the shores of Melville island; nautiluses sailed over what must then have been the tepid seas about Spitzbergen. But with the lapse of ages the scene changed, and worse than arctic rigors spread into regions now enjoying temperate climate. Pos sibly not for the first time. The Per mian was certainly an inclement age, and its inclemency seems even to have reached the point of glaciation in the west of England arid Ireland, yet it was preceded and succeeded by a long prev alence of tropical conditions. These assuredly reigned without in terruption, in north temperate and polar regions throughout the vast expanse of Tertiary time. Palms and cycads then sprang up in the room of oaks and beeches in England; turtles and croco diles haunted English rivers and estu aries; lions, elephants and hyenas roamed at large over English dry land. Edinburgh Review. I'aylng a Debt. The celebrated French poet, Saint Foix, who, in epite of his large income, was always in debt, sat one day in a barber's shox waiting to be shaved. He was lathered, when the door opened and a tradesman entered who happened to be one of the poet's largest creditors. No sooner did this man see Saint-Foix than he angrily demanded his money. The poet composedly begged him not to make a scene. "Won't you wrait for the money until 1 am shaved?" "Certainly," said the other, pleased at the prospect. Saint-Foix then made the barber a witness of the agreement and imme diately took a towel, wiped the lather from his face and left the shop. He wore a beard to the end of his days. London Tit-Bits. Courtship in China. A curious custom prevails at Huay-ning-hsien, in Kwangsi. On the fif teenth day of the first month in each year all the young ladies and gentlemen take a walk to the Yen-yen mountain. Each damsel carries a little box, which she deposits at the foot of the hill. Any young gentleman desirous of entering the bonds of matrimony may select one of the boxes and take it away with him, whereupon the fair owner of the box makes herself known and an acquaint anceship is thus formed. Ill assorted matches are not likely to occur, as this custom is observed only among the well to do classes of society. Schnitzel und Spane. The Child's Protest. Joseph Haworth, the actor, tells a story of a little ?;irl who was very cur ious to know about thunderstorms, and was told i . her mother that thej were the voice of God. A few days later the child was caught out in a thun derstorm and called by her mother tc come in. Her little legs came toddling np to the piazza as fast as they could, but as she reached the steps there came a terrific clap of thunder, and the little one, looking uj, said, with a pained ex pression on her face: "Oh, Dod, 'oc needn't holler so loud; I'se hurryin dest as fast as I tan." Buffalo Express. The Sun Kecord. Sunshine is recorded at the meteoro logical office in England by means ol tho Stokes-Campbell instrument, the es sential feature of which is a spherical lens, which acts as a burning glass. As the sun accomplishes its apparent jour ney from east to west it burns its auto graph into a strip of card placed beneath tho lens, but can only do so when it is easy to calculate the amount of actual sunshine with which each day is favored. Chambers' Journal. Senses of Taste and Smell. The incapable, who neither know not care how food ought to be prepared, are hardly conscious that they are responsi ble for the health of thoso they cater to. The senses of taste and smell appear tc bo interdependent, and everything that tastes pleasantly or smells agreeably ex cites a flow of the gastric juices, and then, with digestion, there is a bettei chance to assimilate food. New York Times. Tho measles bacillus, discovered in Berlin by Dr. Canon, varies in length from one three-thousandth to one one thousandth of an inch. It possesse. characteristics said to be different from those of any other bacillus known. The grain crop for one year of the fetates west of the Mississippi, including oats, barley, rye, etc., at the lowest esti mate will reach $300,000,000. New investigations have compelled the reduction of the estimated population of China from something over 400,000,00C to about 3-30,000,000. About Salad Dressing. Every one in New York who eats 6alad thinks that there are a few people in town who can make a fairly good salad dressing, but that none of them can come up to the dressings made by him (the thinker). "I tell you, sir," said Boggs, the gour mand, as he deluges the lettuce with grease, "that fellow Snoggs thinks he knows how to do this, but he doesn't have any more idea of it than a cow. Think of it, he puts in more vinegar than oil!M At the same moment Snogg3 is mixing a dressing in another part of town and snickering to himself as he remarks: "I was very much amused the rther night at the way Boggs did this. He actually made a dressing without vinegar! Ha! Ha!" and every one laughed. Then there is Juggins, of West Thirty fourth street, who also has his peculiar views. "Any man," he declares, "who puts mustard in a salad shows his igno rance." Muggins, of East Sixty-seventh street, also has decided convictions. "What do you think," he roars out; "I saw Juggins putting mustard in a salad dressing." Then some put in sugar. Others think this an awful absurdity. A few use a dab of Worcestershire sauce. Others would rather be lynched than follow their example. The funny thing is that there is only one way to make a salad dressing. That is the way known to the reader of this article. But the funniest thing is that the same diner out will devour the dressing made by Boggs and join in with his jokes at the expense of the dressings made by Snoggs, Muggins and Juggins. Then the same man will eat at the table of Mug gins and apparently sneer with that per son at the efforts of Snoggs, Boggs and Juggins. There's a lot of conceit and deceit about salad dressings. New York Herald. A Really Absentminded Woman. An absentminded woman put herself on record the other morning in a cross town car, which she boarded at Sixth avenue, bound east. She paid her fare, said "Third avenue" to the conductor, took a second nickel for her ticket on the elevated, and. shutting her purse, gave herself over to some evidently absorbing thought. The car was full of changing people, as is usual with crosstown cars, and a moment later the conductor, making his round again, noticed the nickel and me chanically reached for it. The woman gave it to him without a word and rode on. jn ear x ourtn avenue sne suddenly started out of her reflections, glanced around, saw that she was near her des tination, took out a third nickel to have it ready and once more knit her brows in meditation. Before Third avenue was reached the conductor passed her again. This time she proffered him the nickel, which he would stolidly have taken save for the intervention of an old gentleman seated opposite. "Madam," he said, "you have already paid your fare twice." The woman started and looked con fused, then a light dawned on her face, she thanked the gentleman, put her nickel into her purse and the purse deep into a mysterious pocket somewhere in the back of her dress just as Third avenue was reached. When last seen she was hurrying up the stairs strug gling to fish the purse out in search of the heretofore too convenient nickel. New York Times. The 3- Found the Indians. One night in the tent I heard a cow boy tell this story: He was with a big outfit moving cattle, and one day, some where near the line separating Colorado from New Mexico, they encountered a settler's cabin which had been plunder ed by Indians. The settler and his wife and children had been killed. The fore man was sent for, and he immediately ordered that-the cattle be allowed to take care of themselves while the cow boys went after the Indians. Three par ties set out at once, one commanded by the foreman and the other two by ex perienced men. One party came back in a day without finding any trace of the Indians. Another party came back in two days without finding any trace of the Indians, but at the end of the third day the third party came back whooping and yelling and firing off their pistols, they had found the Indians, killed every one of them and captured their ponies. Cor. Topeka Capital. The Ice Invasion. On both sides of the Atlantic equally, the intercalation of fossilized forests bears authentic witness to tho sweeping over the land of two great waves of ice invasion. The trees manifestly grew where the glaciers had been; again the glaciers crept forward to constitute themselves the sepulchers of the trees. The second advance, however, fell short of the first, and succeeded it at an un known interval of time. Opinions are much divided as to its true significance. Dr. Wright inclines to connect the "forest beds" with merely partial oscillations of the ice front. Edinburgh Review. Fences fn England. English bar fences have the appear ance of being bottom side up somewhat as an x looks when inverted. But it is nil right; lumber is scarce there, and it isn't necessary to have the bars so close together up where the horses and cattle are as down where the sheep and pigs would be tempted to crawl through. New York Sun. Settling Her. Mr. Richchapp Miss Beauti does not seem to be a very warm friend of yours. Miss Pretti N-o, I beiieve she and my mother had some sort of a quarrel when they were girls. New Y'ork Weekly. ' Natural. "We went bang into the iceberg and slid off to one side. The ship fairly shivered." That was natural. I think I'd shiver, 60 close to an icebercr. Haroer's Bazar. Is Life Worth Living? That depends upon the Liver. If the Liver is inactive the whole sys tem is out of order tho "breath is bad, digestion poor, head dull or aching, energy and hopefulness gone, the spirit is de pressed, a heavy weight exists after eating, with general despondency and the blues.
