FEEL WHAT I HAVE FELT Avilkor Unknown tTW' poem was written by a young lady on being told that she was a mono- - maniac in her hatred or alcoholic liquors. O, feel what I have felt, Go bear what I have borne; ' Sink 'neath a blow a father dealt, And the cold, proud world's scorn; Thus , struggle -on from year to year, v Thy sole relief the scalding tear. COURTING IN FIFE. .. Go, weep as I have wept - O'er a loved father's fall, s See every cherished promise swept, ; Youth's sweetness turned to gall; Hope's faded flowers strewed all the way, That led me up to woman's day, 1 Go, kneel as I have knelt; Implore, beseech and pray, ' Strive the besotted heart, to melt, The downward courser to stay; Be cast with bitter curse aside1 - Thy prayers burlesqued," thy tears defied. Go, stand where I have stood, 4 ,, And see -.the strong man bow, ; With gnashing teeth, lips bathed in blood i ' And cold and livid brow; ' , Go, catch his wandering glance, and see There mirrored his soul's misery. Go, hear what I have heard The sobs of sad despair, . As memory's feeling-fount hath stirred. And its revealings there, U Have told him what he might have beea t Had he the drunkard's fate' foreseen. J 7 Go to a mother's side, And her crushed spirit cheer; , Thine own deep anguish hide, Wipe from her cheek the tear; Mark her dimmed eye, her furrowed -browi The gray that streaks her dark hair now, The toil-worn frame, the trembling limb, Andi trace the ruin back to him Whose plighted faith, iir- early youth,. Promised eternal love and truth, But who, , foresworn; hath yielded up This promise to the deadly cup, And' led her down from love and light; From all that made her pathway bright, And chained her there mid want and strife. That lowly thing a. drunkard's wife! And stamp'd on childhood's brow, so mild, That withering blight a drunkard's child! Go, hear, and see, and feel, and know AH' that my soul hath felt and known,. Then look within the wine-cup's glow, ) See if its brightness can atone; Think if its flavor you would try, If all proclaimed " 'Tis drink and dief Tell me I hate the bowl ' Hate is a feeble word; , .

The mode of courtship in Fife in olden days had some very singular characteristics. That it was modest in its nature and did not embarrass the onlooker, and that it had a good deal of true Scottish caution abo'ut it, we learn from the following quaint ac count by an old writer: "When the young man," he .wrote, "hath the felicity to be invited to the same party with the maiden that hath won his affections, then doth he en deavor to sit opposite to her at the table, where he giveth himself not. up to those unseemly oglings and gazings which he" practiced In other parts, to the offense of aged virgins and other persons of much discretion; but, put ting forth his foot, he presseth and .treadeth withal upon the feet and toes of the maiden; whereupon, if she do not roar forth, It is a sign that his ad dresses are well received, and the. two come in due course before the minister. This form of attack Is known by the name of 'Footle,' and the degree of pressure doth denote and measure the warmth of the passion. Such young men as be bashful do hence make good speed; these do take with them a mope forward friend, who shall vicariously, in their stead, give, a light pressure, and a person who doth thus melt the ice of coyness between the parties is, inthese parts, called 'Lightfoot,' from the lightness of his pressure." . Curious customs with regard to mar riage were In force in many, Fif eshire villages during the seventeenth ' cen tury. After being proclaimed oh three successive Sabbaths, the , marriage could not take place until a pledge, usually amounting to five pounds Scots, had been lodged with the kirk session. At a stated time after the marriage, if meanwhile the couple had behaved themselves to the satisfaction of the session, this sum was returned, but if not, the money was forfeited and went to the support of the poor. Many a time the expectant bridegroom had not such a sum as five pounds in his pos session, and in that case a kindly friend or neighbor would lend him trie money. When the marriage of a wealthy couple tok place the bridegroom was expected to contribute very liberally to the poor box. so that marriage in Fife would seem to hav0 been rather a costly affair in olden days. The marriage ceremony was per formed by the minister in much the same way as at the present day. In the subsequent festivities the pipers played a ? very important part. I he proceedings would seem to have been generally of a most uproarious nature, judging from the following minute of Aberdour kirk session, dated January, 1653: "It is . reported by some of the elders that there is any great abuse at bxydalls, with pypers and the; like." : To put down noting1 ana aisoraer at weddings this session, those who seem to have held the poor bagpipe players responsible for much of the trouble, ordained that those who were about to be married must consign two dollars Into the treasurer's, hands, which should be restored after the marriage, provided there had 'been no abuse by pipers, but, in the event of such abuse, the said two dollars was to be confis cated for the use of the poor. The pipers usually accompanied the mar riage party from the house of the bride's relations to that of the bridegroom. . ."Penny weddings, or as they were sometimes called, ,"Penny bridals," were very popular in Fife in the sev enteenth century. Each guest paid a penny for the privilege of taking part In the festivities, and so great was the uproar often made by these "paying guests," in order, presumably, to get as much excitement for their money as possible, that at length, In 1647 we read:. "The Presbytery of St. Andrews passed an act restricting the number of persons present at weddings to twenty and the number present at con tracts and baptisms to six or seven, and this act was extended by the synod to the whole of Fife.

An cient custom and superstitions will be recalled with avidity, and we therefore make no excuse, for relating certain of these. i."I hope," says Duncan Camp bell, the fortune teller (or rather per haps, his biographer, Daniel Defoe)' "that the next 24th of June, which is St. John Baptist's day, I shall not see the several pasture fields adjacent ito this metropolis, especially that behind Montague house, thronged, as they were the last year, with well dressed young ladies, crawling busily .up and down upon their knees, as if they were a parcel of weeders, when all the busi ness is to hunt superstitiously after a coal under the root of a plantain to put under their heads that night, that they may dream who should be their iLusbands.1 This is but one of the va oug means which young women of a irpurlous turn of mind have adopted to' find out at this time who are their jlestined husbands, i There are for ex ample, some who believe that if a girl will, on midsummer eve, walk backward into the garden and gather a rose, and will then, sewing it ,up in a paper bag, put it away till Christmas, her future husband will on Christmas . day either ask for it of take it from her 11 bosom without asking. Others have followed the well known custom of sowing hemp seed on this evening, in the hope that the phantoms of their true lovers would come after that and mow. Another device tried . for the same purpose is that of the "dumb cake." Two girls must make it. two bake it, two break It, and a third per son must (strict silence being observed) put it under their pillows, in order that ' ; they may dream of the husbands whom -the fates have in store for them. A similar superstition, which may still exist, is to the effect that an unmarried women will fast on midsummer, eve, and at midnight .lay a clean cloth with bread, cheese and ale, leaving the street door - open," and siting down as if to eat. will see the person she is to marry come 'in and drink to her. This in the importance it attached to tasting reminds one of the popular belief that those who will fast and sit on the porch of the parish church on this uncanny night will be hold the shades of all who are to die within the yefj in the order of their deaths.

It is, of cesurse, Psalm 107, wherein occur the beautiful and familiar words, "They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters those see the works of the Lord and His wonders In the deep." The Psalm is usually read as part of the simple services which take place on fiunday on ships at sea. For that reason it is known as the sailors' Psalm. London .Chronicle.

But most I prize, past summer's prime, When other throats hav ceased to chime. Thy faithful tree-top strain; No brilliant bursts our ears enthrall A prelude with a "dying fall" That soothes the summer's pain. Where blackcaps sweeten in the shade, ' And clematis a bower hath made, , Or, In the bushy fields. On breezy slope where cattle graze. At noon on dreamy August days, Thy strain its solace yields. Oh, bird inured to sun ana heat. And steeped in summer languor sweet, The tranquil days are thine. The season's fret and urge are o'er. Its tide is loitering on the shore; Make thy contentment mine! -John Burroughs, In the Century. 4MM M'M : Sir Roland's :: : Experience :: - By WILSON M. MATTHEWS Bears the Signature (i The K;nd You Hava Always &&t. (Copyright, 1803, by Daily Story Pub. Oo.) WHEN Sir Boland Chesterton an nounced bis engagement to Camille Kodays, a popular French ac sress, English society was horrified,' while the ,. French elite " merely shrugged their shoulders and said: Ah Dieu!" Then the reported en gagement was declared false and ig-ain Dame Humor circulated the an nouncement as - a positive fact this lime. ' i..f ,A ; : Sir Boland, having just reached his majority, was a handsome, reckless, lare-devil sort of a fellow, with an income of 20,000 sterling a year. . One day at the club, when in one of his reckless moods, hte publicly innounced the engagement. . As a matter of fact it caused a gTeat row' in the young baronet's family. Lady Chesterton, the mother of Sir KolanoV nd the handsomest and haughtiest woman' in all England, became hys terical when a "dear" friend told her the news. She actually took the boy, ha her,, arms and in 'affectionate and! indearing. terms entreated him to re-, aounee this foolish love. The Ladies' Blanche and Eleanor, t his elder sis ters, went on their knees to him; hi tousin," who came next in succession to the title and estates, asked him to abdicate ; his fellow clubmen sim ply laughed a-t him; but Sir Roland remained obdurate for a- little while. . ' - --- : Then very unexpectedly came the announcement , that the ''marriage" was "indefinitely" postponed, and Sir Roland suddenly determined to make i tour of the continent. He was gone almost a year when one morning he returned as mysteriously as he, had Separted. He was received, with open arms by all members of the baron etcy, for they were thoroughly con vinced that his infatuation for pretty Camille was gone. It was shortly before midnight one' evening, as Sir Eoland was preparing to leave the club, thai a . letter was handed to him by a messenger boy. The hand writing on the back of the envelope caused him to turn deathly pale, and with trembling fingers he broke the seal. "My Dear Roland," it ran. "Come to' me as soon as you get this. I have but a little while to live, the doctor told me yesterday. My long sickness has made me horribly ugly, but I am starved for just one smile from you., I am always at home and can see you any time." The next ; day at two o'clock he. went to see her and was horrified at her changed appearance. Her cheeks, once oval and tinted . with delicate pink, were now sunken and colorless; great, dark rings encircled her eyes, and deep, heavy lines that told ,of long suffering marred .the , face that Was once famous for its beauty. The eyes retained much of their former brilliancy, the lips .were still fresh and pink, and the glorious locks of hair, as they lay in tangled disorder on the white pillows, were still beau tiful as when first he met her. The room, with the curtains all, drawn, and the medicine bottles arranged in profusion about her, Camille seemed really about to enter the portals of death. Sir Roland remained but a short while in the sick room and as he turned to go he met a large, brusque woman in the doorway wear ing the garb of a nurse, and who treated him in a surly fashion when he inquired after the patient. "The illness is her aifair, not yours!" she said, brushing past 'him. The next day Sir Roland again visited the sick room and found Camille a trifle bet ter, he eyes flashed with the old brilliancy and in every way her man ner was quite like the Camille of former days, jjir Roland passed a most congenial hour in her company until the nurse came and in the same brusque fashion dismissed him from the room. When he reached the stair way a bell rang in the lower hall. "I knew the doctor would come and find you here!" cried the nurse, shak ing her fist in Sir Roland's face. The next instant a fine, portly-looking man entered the hallway. When the nurse went upstairs to inform Ca mille of the doctor's arrival Sir Roland seized the opportunity to make inquiries. ' "Is Mademoiselle Camille danger ously ill? Or do you think she will recover? 1 presume you are a near friend f mademoiselle's?" "Yes yes, of course!" "Then I would say mademoiselle is quite ill. I have done everything for her that . . medical science can do, but " he hesitated.. "Is her illness so serious that you have given up all hope?" "Practically. You see it is -what people call 'heart break.' A wealthy baronet, who came of a very aristo cratic family, left her suddenly. , At first she succeded in hiding her sor row, but it proved too much for her strength, and as a consequence she collapsed. "When' she was able to sit up she insisted on having a window open, and'in an hour afterward was taken with a hard chill, then came a hack ing cough, which affected her lungs1 that is all; it is simply a question of time." . "There must be something you can do for' her to save, her from death, medical science is so advanced now adays. If it is simply a matter of money " , ' "No, no, no! Money, science' or nothing else can save her. She tried change of 'climate, she consulted the most eminent specialists, and at last she asked that she might come home to spend the few remaining weeks of ter life." : "Doctor, mademoiselle is ready to receive you," said the nurse, appear irjg at the door. , ' - jjA week after Sir Roland went again to. see Camille, but was refused ad mission to her apartments. "Made moiselle lis much 'worse, Xord Ches terton,, and , she has changed dread fully; she absolutely refused to see anyone." "Then it would not make her hap py now she would not care to " . ' ''To what, my 'lord?" i "To marry me." ! s , ' "I f ear but wait; here comes th doctor now." Sir Roland took the doctor, to one side and unfolded his plan, although the doctor warned him that Camille could live but a few hours; then, de liberately pushing the nurse to one side, he entered Camille's room, and was horrified ' at the change . in her condition, her fips were white as death, her face was ghastly like that Df a corpse, and the light from the green shaded lamp njade the room look weird and strange. Had he been a closer observer he would have noticed . a mocking smile 'playing about her mouth as he told her of a certain thing he Intended to do. But, as a most natural consequence, he saw nothing. Returning two days later, clothed with all' the necessary authority of the law, Camilje Rodays became 4 Lady Chesterton, the nurse .and the doctor . acting as , witnesses to the ceremony. After the ceremony was over Sir Roland bent over the bed , and, taking the new, Lady Ches terton in his arms, kissed her color less lips, despite her efforts to strug gle away from him. The next instant the nurse was ordering him -out of the house, declaring that the excite ment brought on by the hasty mar riage would be the death of the girl. Sir Roland walked ' rapidly down the narrow little street with a very serious expression on his handsome young face. He was both glad and eorry; he was thoroughly ; convinced that he had done the right thing by Camille. ' He at least ; had kept his word, , but the familywhat would they say?, Then the thought came to him that probably Camille would die in a week or so; before his chival rous act became known; and the very next moment the thought of Camille dying set his jheart to beat ing wildly. After he had walked some distance he , took a cigar from an inner pocket, bit off the end and; was going to light it when he felt a sticky substapce on his lips. Impul sively, he drew his hand across his month, then looked at his' fingers, and saw they were smeared with a cosmetic- ; . . "Could it be?" he asked himself, then he remembered how round and ! plump Camille's hand was when he placed the ring on her finger. Turn ing back, he walked , rapidly, his heart filled with doubt and misgiv ing. As he again approached the pretty little villa he turned hastily down, a side street that led directly past the garden. Reaching the gate, he lifted the latch and entered, with the same rapid strides he walked up the craveled pathwav: upon reachinff the house he entered unannounced. , , In the garden room, seated about a table, was a merry company; Ca mille, in the best of health and be witchingly beautiful, sat at the head of the table arrayed in a costly gown; on one side sat the fake nurse, and on the other, the "doctor" in whom Sir Roland recognized a young variety actor that had lately become popular; some chorus girls and a few amateurs completed, the company. "How strange that I should not have beenasked to this feast," (he said, entering the room very quietly. The "doctor" made an effort to re ply, the ' "nurse" covered her face with her hands, the chorus girls sat mute and dumb with terror, but Ca mille, calm and collected, rose and went to him. "Roland, I know it was wrong, but it is no more than you deserve. I will admit it was all a trick, but the law can't annul the marriage on that ac count," and her voice grew tender and pleading. "I never meant you to know how I had deceived you. You will forgive me you will Ro land!" She held out her beautiful arms to him, and for a moment he hesitated, then almost fiercely he took her in his arms and showered her face with kisses. A fortnight later London was startled by the announcement that Sir Roland Chesterton has abdicated in favor of his cousin, Sir Charles. El QLAS SPECIAL SALE. f00g Ijjlg QQ, SPECIAL SALE.

Much of the business of these courts consists of what are known as landlord and ten ant cases. In most of the disputes aris ing from broken leases the tenants have sought to justify themselves for moving out by claiming that there was a lack of steam heat during the cold weather. The .landlords invaria"bly combated this testimony by claiming that there was no coal to be obtained at the time.- Some of the landlords of the , high grade apartment houses, where the leases represent a good deal of money, made the mistake of calling their engineers to corroborate them. .The engineers when cornered testified that they used only sufficient coal to keep the cold storage plants Jn the houses fron freezing. These plants are very costly, and had they frozen up and the pipes burst the damage would have been about $25,000. It was due to this fact alone that many of the best apartment houses in the city were left without any heat at all. N, Y. Times. , v Roue Briar.
