One of the most celebrated of eight eenth century poems. Oray's "Elegy," mgde its first public appearance In the shape of a hurriedly printed pamphlet, which was sold for sixpence. This pub lication was the result of a curious race for priority, (iray completed the poem some time In 1750, but .had uo immediate Intention of publishing It. A' copy, however, found Its way Into the hands of n Mr. Owen, the publish er nnd proprietor of the Magazine of Magazines, a recently established peri odical, and ho wrote to the poet stat ing his intention of printing it In bis magazine, and asking his co-operation. The proposal was not at all agreeable to Cray, but, seeing that publication was inevitable, he wrote at once to Horace Wnlpole explaining the circumstance and asking him to get Dodslcy to print It immediately, but without the au thor's name. Walpole handed the poem to Dodslcy on Feb. 12, 1751, and on the 20th a copy wns In Gray's hands at Cambridge, so that it was probably published in 'London on the ISth or 10th. The Magazine ?f Magazines for February, according to the then cus tom, wns published toward the end of the month, nnd may hare come out on the same. day. The rival editions must have appeared, It is pretty safe to say, within a few hours of each other. The action of the magazine editor was hardly Justifiable, but (t laid the read-. Ing world under a debt of obligation by forcing the poem Into print Sev eral original copies of the "Elegy" in the poet's writing are in existence. One. which was sold for $1,150 at Sotheby's In 1S75, was especially In teresting from the number of correc tions and erasures made by the au thor's hand. In this manuscript Gray had substituted "Cromwell" nnd "Mil ton" for "Ca'sar and "Tully" ns he had originally written. Ills friend Mason Is said to have suggested this altera tion as well as the title of the poem, which Gray at first simply called "Stanzas." Golden Penny. DEER IN THE WOODS. Their Appearance Deceive AH but tbe Old Hunter. Next to the difficulty of comprehend ing the wonderful senses of the deer Is that of understanding bow one looks In the woods. Your Ideas are necessarily taken from pictures or from stuffed deer or tame ones In a park. You are almost certain to be looking for a deer, whereas you might better be looking for anything else. In the woods you seldom see half of a deer and generally much less, often only a part of the shoulder, or only an ear over a log or a leg uvder It. a bit of rump projecting from a bush or a head and bit of tbe neck reaching up for leaves. The ar cade of maple lit up by the scarlet of the ginseng and bush cranberry, tbe little arbor where the wild bop Is yel lowing over the thorn apples on which half a dozen rutted grouse are taking their breakfast, the edge of the pool where the trout flashes through the water over which the chelone Is still nodding, or the darksome glade where the golden petals of the witch hazel are closing the floral march of tbe year would all make lovely frames Tor that charming artist's deer with Individual hairs all glisteulug. tbe dark dew claws shining, and even tbe split in tbe hoof flashing artistic light, from Its edges. But the glittering tines, the proud neck of the sculptured war horse, the shaggy chest and bulging rump with tall full of shining hairs are not there except at long Intervals when you may rout an old fool out of bed and get him twisted as to the points of the compass. T. S. Van Dyke In Outing. Fooled tlie Other Fellows. An old showman says that one emu r.ier he traveled with a circus Vde show. A.n admission of 10 cents was charged, and all he had was a pig with one ear off. When people came Jn, he said to them: "Don't say n word. Let us fool the other fellows." The vic tims went out, saying It was a great how and encouraged others to go In. Americans are always willing to foo tach other. Atchison Globe. A PASTOR WHO SAVED Rev. H.

Upon the fly leaf of one of the bioles tlie Emperor has written in his own handwriting text. This honored past r, in a recent letter to The reruns Medicine Co., of Co lumbus, Ohio, says concern im their famous catarih remedy, Peruna : The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, Ohio. Gentlemen: "I had hemorrhages of the lung for a longtime, and all despaired of me. I took Peruna and was cured. It gave me strength and courage, and made healthy, pure blood. It Increased my weight, gave me a healthy color, and I feel well. It Is the best medicine In the world. If everyone kept Peruna In the house It would save many from death every year."--H. STUBENVOLL. Thousands of peonlo have catarrh who would be surprised to know it, because it has been called some other name than catarrh. The fact is catarrh is catarrh wherever located; and another fact which is of equally great import ance is that Peruna cures catarrh wherever located.
