Oni-idc my garret window there's a roof,
And there the lively sparrows love to come
In wintry days, eacr to et a crumb.
Though feathered warm, in brown and gray,
Are th y "gainst hunger. From a ledge aloof
They flurry down, alert and frolicsome.
And then again they're sober eyod and glum.
Anxious that I should give for their behoof.
They are abused by some, I freely own;
A ! when I gave food 1 have seen them flare
Away awhile, as if they had a fear
Of unexpected harm, but ne'er a stone
Would I throw at these gossips of the air
That the dull weather fills with chatty cheer.

The Modern Shave.
"The nose pulling barber is hard to
find now unless one goes into the cheap
shops," said George D. Hamilton oi
ueiupuiM. "mere was a lime not SO i
many years ago when a barber would
take you by the nose if he had to shave
your upper lip and almost pull the pro
tuberance up by the roots. A friend of
mine told me he went into a shop once,
and the barber asked him if he would
have a thumb or a spoon shave, meaning
thereby that if my friend was fastidious
about having the barber jab his thumb
in the corner of his mouth to extend his
jaw he would use a spoon for that pur
pose. But those days are gone. Even
the talking barber is a missing link be
tween the new and the old tonsorial
schools. All the disagreeable features of
a shave have disappeared, and the opera
tion is now smooth and pleasant. The
only people who find anything disagree
able in the process are those who shave
themselves or who get a shave in a5-cent
shop." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
M wiiiie's Yearly Expenses.
"Alinnie can afford to marry a poor
man," said a friend of Minnie's mother,
speaking of the daughter's evident liking
tor an impecunious young lawyer.
"That is just where you are mistak
en," answered Minnie's mamma. "She
has $0,000 a year of her own, and she
spends every penny of it upon her clothes.
Her dresses last year cost about $4,000,her
hats and bonnets about $500, her lingerie
another $500, and besides there are her
jackets, gloves and all the other acces
sories of the toilet. And she is no ex
ception in her world; most of her friends
spend quite as much and many a great
deal more. No wonder that young men
cannot afford to marry nowadays and
only rich girls are in demand, though
if men did but know it it is more ex
pensive to marry an heiress than a girl
who has been accustomed to manage
with very little." New York Tribune.
A Queer ISusiiiess In China.
In China a baldheaded man of almost
any age can within the space of 48 hours
he transformed into a blooming youth,
as far as the hair is concerned; or a
beardless youth of 18 can be made to
look like 60 within the same length of
time by having planted upon his face a
genuine gray beard four feet long; or an
old maid without eyebrows can be trans
formed into a girl of sweet 16 by being
fitted out with a beautiful pair of brand
new eyebrows or eyelashes of any color.
Jt is not a very costly operation in any
case, although it is a little painful, but
then as it is only temporary, what mat
ter does it make to have beauty restored
to you if you do have to suffer a little
pain for only 24 hours or even 48 hours.
Without it you may have to be poor and
homely all your life. Wong Chin Foo

The Population of the Moon.
There is plenty of authority for be
lieving that there is a man in the moon;
in fact, there is authority for believing
that there are women and other animals
there. Dante declares that Cain was
banished to the moon, and that he can
be seen there at any time. Chaucer de
clares that the man in the moon was
guilty of larceny, and that he carries a
thornbush. Shakespeare loads him with
thorns and gives him a dog. Accord
ing to the genera! version, he was ban
ished tlvre for gathering sticks on Sun
day, and the Germans have amplified
this the; try by giving him a woman who
had been caught churning butter on
Sunday. New York Telegram.

Ointments from Whales.

ternallv in catarrh and other affections,
as well as in the form of ointments for

south seas, while the highly esteemed
ambergris is only a condition of disease

DURHAM DAILY GDOJJE, FRIDAY, JUNE 2.
"The mot remarkable ii
hoard of. and which til. ,.i
bly the 'ruling passion " s
foiiara to liie Man About Town, "was
a case in which I figured last week. I
was called to write a will for a gentle
man in this city, then on his deathbed,
lie was always a cautious, economical
man, and had accumulated some prop
erty and money. After the death of the
owner there were se veral heirs to the
property, alljf whom were anxious to
have the sick man make a will dividing
it as he saw proper.
"I called at thj house and the will was
duly written and signed by the old man.
who was held in the arms of his friends
while the trembling hand traced his
name nnnn tVi rawr
After he was laid
upon the bed he motioned me to hold
my head so I could understand him, and
in a raping, tremulous voice he asked,
'What do you charge?'
"A voice at my elbow said softly, 'Tell
him a dollar or two.'
" 'A dollar or two,' I shouted in his
ear. (He was very deaf.) 'All right,'
said he, if it had cost any more 1
wouldn't a-had it done,' he gasped. The
death rattle had already begun in his
throat. His fingers were purple and the
shades of death were already settling
upon his face; yet with all this, his greed
was as manifest as when most busy in
the accumulation of the property.
"I got my $10, though," said the judge,
"but he never would have paid me more
than $1." St. Louis Republic.
The English Language.
Professor Vambery has been lecturing
on the "Fashion of Languages" before
the Buda-Pesth English club. English,
he said, may now be called the most
fashionable language in all the five parts
of the world. It began to spread in the
first decades of the century through Eng
lish literature, and in Asia by means of
accelerated communication. Steamers
were the wings of the English language
in the far east, and its spreading from
India and the straits settlements to Chi
na and Japan is simply miraculous.
There is no exaggeration in saying
that the number of English speaking
Asiatics amounts today to 3,000,000; that
of Europeans to more than 1,000,000, and
these, added to the 126,000,000 Anglo
Saxons, give a total of English speaking
men and women of 130,000,000. Should
the increase continue in the same propor
tion, the middle of next century will
have 200,000,000 English speaking per
sons, and the English will have no rival
in the world besides the Chinese.
Phonetically English is unsuitable for
the foreigner, and the lecturer declares
he always suffered acute pain in the jaws
when speaking publicly in England and
trying to imitate genuine English. The
phonetic difficulties are, however, amply
rewarded through the expressiveness, the
rare precision, vigor and exactness in
which English surpasses all other Euro
pean tongues. London News.
The microscopic diamonds made by M.
Henri Moissan are net the first real
diamonds made by the chemist. Some
years ago Mr. Hannay of Glasgow suc
ceeded in making a few small gems, and
mother Glasgow chemist not long ago
announced that he was making experi
ments in this direction and had obtained
Moissan, however, was the first to form
a gem by means of the high temperature
of the electric furnace, though the idea
of doing so is not exactly novel. Moissan
obtains a temperature of from 3,000 to
4,000 degrees centigrade in his electric
crucible and fuses irOn or silver, which
absorbs the carbon of sugar. When the
used metal cools, part of the carbon
.separates from it again in the form of
crystals, black or white that is to say,
black diamond or carbonado and ordi
nary, clear diamond.
The crystallization seems to be facili
tated by pressure, which is produced by
the expansion of the sugar carbon as it
cools. The diamond crystals were ex
ceedingly minute and quite unfit for
jewelry. Moreover, the process is very
expensive. Manchester Times.
Getting Measured For a Gun.
A fact which is not generally known
outside of sporting circles is that a gun
ner who seeks to do the hest work he is
capable of requires to be measured for
his gun in the same way as he would be
for his suit of clothes. To facilitate this
operation, a new adjusting gnu has been
devised. The bend and castoff of the
gun are adjusted by means of screws,
and the points of each are placed in
grooves running parallel to the line of
the butt. The length of the butt is also
adjusted by screws in the heel. The
length and bend of the stock can in this
way be regulated to the length of neck
and arm of the shooter, as well as to the f
various special requirements to which
his style of shooting may give rise.
A shrewd Ciie Cod farmer descanting
lately on family quarrels said: "I'm of
the opinion of my wife. 'Go to a family
party'.-' she says. 'Yes. I always go, provided-it
isn't in my own family.' The
reason of them family rows is that they
live too clost and rub agin each other too
much. There was the Wings down oni

Wheezy Hand Organs.
It is usually supposed that the fair.t
