'' Away up among the hills I have seen the great lake that drew into itself the rains from heaven, fed by a thousand streams, and hold ing m sweetness and purity its vast store ror the far-on city with its hosts of men and wo men and little children. Down there were ten thousand common wants which it waited to supply, the weary toilers whom it waited to refresh, the sick and fevered whom It soothed and comforted. And I thought how that between its fullness and the city's wants there stretched the hidden pipes forever re ceiving, forever distributing. But for these all the wealth of water were but a waste; and but for these the city were none the bet ter for that fullness. So lofty and so lofty is our work. We lift up our eyes unto the hills where is the Infinite love aud help of God. We look upon the city and sigh over its sins and sorrows. And lol this is made our glori ous possibility to draw from that fullness for the wants of those about us. hrlmrini? into the midst of earth's want and sorrow and healing help, the almighty strength, the trans forming love that are available for us in Jesus Christ. Mark Guy Pearse. The recent tragic death of President Car not recalls an. interesting incident by which his name is tLsociated with that of a brave little American bvroine. -About n month ago a medal, benrljg the Insignia of the Legion of Honor, w presented bv the Friih govern- nSwitM i;reck' " ,itt,e ten-vWold Clermont county, Ohio, who savea ine train oaf 0f WOrld's fair passengers on the PittsbuW Cincinnati, Chicago -?M. Some White House 11 Washington at his official receptions greet ed his visitors with a bow, but without shak ing hands' On these occasions he wore black velvet short clothes, silver knee aud shoe buckles and yellow gloves. Ills hair was pow dered and gathered behind In a bag. He car ried a cocked hat In his hand and at his side hung a long sword with glittering steel hilt and scabbard of polished white leather. At his private table he entertained with the dig nity, grace and hospitality of an old Virginian gentleman. Many foreigners who visited the United States during his first administration were greatly Impressed by the unostentatious manner in which the president treated his family guests. One English visitor in writing of a breakfast which she partook under the president's roof, says, "Mrs. Washington made tea nnd coffee; thero was sliced tongue, dry toast aud bread and butter. A single ser vant wearing uo llvcry waited on the table) and a simple silver urn for hot water w as the only expensive piece of table furniture." The virulence of party strife during the ad- ministration of John Adams so greatly !i, turbed social harmony that the ctitertalnment were frequently characterized by a coldness and severity that were anything but magnetic In their effect. It Is probable that the early New England training of Mr. and Mrs. Adams had much to do with this result, During the administration of Thomas Jef. ferson simplicity and dignity were the rule of the Americau court as It was of the Ameri can government. Jefferson detested etiquette so much that he rode unattended to his inuu guration, hitched his horse to a post and Went alone up the capitol stairs to be .mail? the ruler of the nation. The Fourth of July find the 1st of January were his two public ilu'y for the formal reception of company. At other times all who desired to do so could call upon him and be sure of a welcome., James Madison and his wife were famous for their irenerous hosoitalltv; and It was ex tended to the president's bitterest political op ponents. Dinner parties were given every week and the beauty and lasinon oi tne coun try met in the presidential drawing rooms Mr. Madison possessed the old school elegance of manners to a remarkable degree and among his intimate friends was humorous and enter taining. His wife "Dolly" has likewise been nortraved bv history as one of the most ohar- ining of the hostesses who have graceil. the White House. Monroe was a irreat stickler for etiti iette once refusing admittance to a near relative to attend a reception at the White House because unable to attend In short clothes and i-ilken hose. The cold and apathetic manner of John Ouinc.v Adams created both discontent and unpopularity. He was called the "lciclr"' and spoken of as "his presidential highness." Even his children called nun "tne president" anil addressed their mother as "madam." Andrew Jackson was a model of republican siniDlicity and frankness. At tue table his guests were provided with two forkar-vne of steel anu tne otner or suver, me yramrciu al wavs choosing the former. His hospitality at the' White House was characterized by tho same lavishness that had made the llonnitage famous and not imfrenucntlv he was cOnnelled to eke out his salary by drawing on his- pri vate resources and pay for his dinners with his eotton crop. During his administration the dinners at the White House savored more of continental usages than of the .stilt' English formalities previously in vogue.- The guests instead of leaving after coffee had been served as was thefcustom during the administration of Mr. Adams, were wont to linger- for sev eral hours. The hospitable habit which had prevailed of handing refreshments around was of necessity abandoned during the latter part of Jackson's incumbency, the rough and impolite crowds stripping the salvers of their contents before they reached the salon. It has been remarked that the White House tinder Buchanan's administration more nearly approached the ideal of an American court than any time In tho history of the country since the days of the early presidents.

With remarkable presence of mind the little one tore off her red petticoat, ran down the track until she came in sight of the approaching train and waved her skirt as a danger signal. A number or French passengers were aboard the train. They called the attention of the French world's fair commissipner to the inci dent, and he in turn laid it before President Carnot. The French government communi cated with Governor McKinley of Ohio, and through him learned the child's address. Up on learning it, President Carnot at once for warded the medal given only in recognition of acts of heroism. Tap ley's "Bread other slioes. uilv. Winner" outwears all THE OLD SCHOOMASTEH.

At this season one often hears the remark, Oh, if we could have a thunder-storm to cool the air !" or "Why is it that thunder-storms don't seem to cool us off as they used to?" The theory on which such ejaculations are based namely, that the rain or electricity, or both, effect a refreshing change In the tem perature of tlie air. one which will last for a lay or two at least Is erroneous, although idcly held. The fact is, in only a small pro portion of cases, which will be presently ex plained, does cool, exhlliarating weather promptly follow a thunder-storm, and in these instances it is not the storm which pro- tices it, but something else, something which helped to cause the storm. Kain in the winter is usually distributed rather continuously and evenly over a wide area on the eastern, southeastern and south ern sides of a broad area in which the baro- metic readings, corrected for temperature and reduced to sea level, are less than 30 inches. Such an area, often several hundred miles across, is marked "Low" ou the weather map, where lines are drawn to show differ ences of pressure by tenths of inches. In winter the readings at the centre are some times less than 2!) inches in severe storms. In the coltl season, too, sucn depressions move across the country, in an easterly direction. rather rapidly, say from 500 to S10 miles per day. in tne summer tney are shallower anu travel more slowly. Moreover, the attendant precipitation is not evenly distributed, but occurs in local showers. Some of these are no bigger than a 10-acre lot, aud hist onlv for a minute or two. Others are more extensive. Usually several prevail at-fue same time. Iie- ing separated widely bv regions of sunshine. The more violent are attended by lightning anil perhaps brief gusts of wind and hail. These, when well organized, have an east-aml-west depth of from one to five miles. reach northward and southward two or three times as far, perhaps, and move from west to east. Fcrrell, Davis, Greeley aud other meteoro logists agree in lielievlng that from the centre region of a thunder-cloud there is downward gush of air, cooled by coining from a higher level than the earth and also by the rain fall ing in it, and this current pours" out forward as the storm advances and affords that first delightful, though often mischievous, blast which comes to us s few minutes ahead of rain. As soon as one recognizes the source of till sudden westerly breeze ho easily per 'elves that it must be temporary, and as soon " tlie disturbance has passed the wind must Ko back to the nuarter from which it came Wore the Interruption, probably tho south Rllll then ft beeomes lis fondle hm lipora. locality that has thus been twice visited by a shower, as soon as the latter Is over, is ba'th- l ugaln by air currents (lowing spirally In Wtinl toward "Low." These on the rlirht. blind of the axis of the eclipse of which that urea forms a part, come from warm regions: taose on the left-hand or rear, from colder ones. If, however, as sometimes happens, ur imiiuier-storm occurs very near tne axis or "trough," and If, furthermore, the low area itself is traveling eastward at a rauld Mite, then within a very few hours the cool. dry, northwesterly breeze of the adjacent jngi!" overtakes us and is apt to stay witn us a u ay or so.

Potato Blight. - L li Jones, botaulst of the state agricultur al experiment station at Burlington, issues the following bulletin about potato blight: Our potato vines are attacked by two distinct blights. The early blight attacks earlier pota toes, spreading slowly In July and August, causing premature death of vines, but no rot. The late blight attaeks later potatoes iu Aug ust nnd September spreading rapidly in warm moist weather, aud is followed by rot. The early blight is a complex trouble, caused by the attacks of Insects as well as fungi. It is already appearing on early potatoes. Being a complicated disease, it is less perfectly con trolled by spraying than "is the late blight. Our results last summer showed that it, can be at least partially checked by Bordeaux mixture, The late blight and rot is afungous disease, aud Bordeaux mixture properly ap plied is an almost perfect remedy. By its use we have invariably kept our later potatoes alive through September and have lost but very few from rot. " The result has been that our yield of later potatoes has been more than doubled by spraying. Every potato grower should try it this summer, especially on medi um and late potatoes. The formula for Bordeaux mixture is : Five pounds of copper sulphate, five pounds lime (must be fresh; not air slacked), 60 gallons of (1 barrel) water. Dissolve the copper sul phate in clean wooden or brass vessels, slack the lime in another vessel, then dilute with water to a thin whitewash and strain it into the copper solution. Stir thoroughly and add water to make about 50 gallons. Chips, lumps of lime, etc, in the mixture will clog pump or nozzles. Therefore, thoroughly clean all vessels to begin with. Strain, all water and copper solutions through cheese-cloth, unless thev are perfectly clean, Strain the lime whitewash through some coarser cloth or sieve and throw away all the dregs and lumps.. Blue vitriol may be quickly dissolved in water by heating in a brass kettle to the boil ing point, or by pouring boiling water over it. The most convenient way we have found, however, is to dissolve In cold water bv wit ting it in a coarse sack and suspending this in the top of a tub or barrel of water. As fast as the heavy solution forms it settles to the bottom and fresh water rises. Bv using a gallon of water for each pound of blue vitrol it will dissolve in a few hours this way. To avoid the trouble of weighing, the blue vitriollmavibe measured out(flvepounds equals two quarts), and the lime added by test. This test consists in pouring a few drops of solu- A prominent clergyman of Mississippi re commends " Golden Medical Discovery " to suffering humanity everywhere.

The best way to do this is with a force pump which has good spraying nozzles attached. Unfortunately, but a few have these pumps. Applying witn a common watering pot or with a pail and broom or wisp of hay takes more time and patience, as well as more of the mixture, but if thoroughly done will give good results.

Wing Of course we keep several kinds but will only mention the three best sellers. One is a mixture that we sell at 25c per lb., and it is a very lair collee too, better than you would expect at that price. Then we sell a straight Mocha and Java at 35c that is a good one, but when a customer tells us to put up a pound of first- class coffee we always grind some of that Padaug Java that we have handled for the last five years, with perhaps a little Mocha in it if he prefers it that way. We get 38c per lb. for that coffee, but when we sell a person some of it of fioifee we are pretty reasonably sure of a customer on coffee. Teas are very low this year, especially Japans. Our 60c grade is an unusually good value, and we have one for 50c that is fully equal to that which we used to sell for 60c. We have the cheaper grades of course if you: want them. If you use the Oolong, would like to have you try some of that "Buffulo Chop" at 60c, for we think it would please you. If you have never tried our Teas and Coffees we would like to have you do so these to sell more rrrfA Ci "tVe are selling lots of now but would like 17. D. & J. L STOCKWELL, West Brattleboro.
