Ohio's Largest I'opliir Tree.
What is said to havo been tho largest pop
lar tree in Ohio recently went down before
thu woodman's relentless ax to add, if all
goes well, to tho contents of n capitalist's
purse. Tills monarch of tho forest had a
traditional ago, covering sovernl centuries.
Tho oldest inhabitant of Tnylorvllle, near
whero it stood, could not lecull u tlmo when
Its majestic crown had not outshonu thoso of
nil thu other woodlnwii figures, and when It
was not looked upon as tho intriarch of tho
forest. A trunk measuring 1 1 feet H inches
in diameter proudly supported nn upper
growth whoso topmost point reached n
height of more than 'J 10 feet. Tlio hollow nt
thu bnso widened Into n cozy chamber, whose
dlnmrtvr was 7 feet, and whoso odd nooks
and corners had afforded shelter to genera
tions of prattling children and echoed tho
sighs of a thousand lovers. No bough pro
jected from Its trunk lielow n height of CO
feet, but from thciico upward It spread its
majestic shoots in every imngluablo direc
tion. Plainly it was too noblo a tree to
stand, ns tho arguments of our times run,

Tho Cowardice of Suicide.
Now York city was shocked n fow days ngo
by n strange suicide In ono of our lending
hotels, tho motivo assigned being tho inability
of tho ono who took his own lifo to provide
for his family. Aud vet ho killed himself
rather than stay by li loved ones nnd do
what ho could for the I This Is so illogical
tha tho temptation Is to cxpluln thu deed on
tho theory tlmt ttio suicide is uecessarlly in
sane. But wo doubt If it ii just to tnko such n
charitablo view of tho ease. Tho less subtle
explanation Is more jbnbly tho truo one.
In almost every ins. ioo suicldo springs
from cowardice. Tho elf murderer dares
not fnco tho consequences of his own faults
or ho shrinks from tho ird duties that ac
company his life. Tl ioIco ho makes may
bo tmrcasounblo to tho liolut of absurdity
mid even madness, bu - need not refer tho
act to insanity, nor (s so regarded In law
unless thero Is ovldenei it rod need to prove

law regards tho suicide as a criminal, anil it
may bo added that generally ho Is a very

Tim elephants had their bath and n game
of ball ut tho Zoological garden tho other
day. Empress mid Jennie with shrill trum
pet lugs dashed into tho big pool mid enjoyed
themselves Ilko two schoolboys out for mi
afternoon's swim. Empress wns first in tbo
water, and Jounlo soon Jumied in after her
companion. Thoy rolled over nnd oyer,
climbed ou each other's backs and plunged
together lielow tho surface, coming to tho
top with snorts of delight nnd shooting out
from their long trunks great streams of
water. Keeper Pendergnst stimulated the
sport by casting two inflated bladders into
tho pool, with which tho elephants sported
for a long time, catching (hem mid throwing
them at each other's heads. When the
keecr thought that tho fun had continued
long enough ho prodded tho unwilling beasts
out with u long pole. Then ho throw n scoro
of Inflated bladders on tho brick pavement
surrounding tho pool, which tho elephants
pounded with their feet until nil of them had
been exploded, a proceeding in which thoy
appeared to seo almost as much sport as in
their bath. Philadelphia Ilecord.
A rccullur financial Operation.
A newly arrived Immigrant from Ireland
had saved enough money to buy n good
silver watch, but Imd not acquired sulllclcut
dexterity to take care of It. Ilo let it fall
ono day, nnd damaged it so seriously that it
would not run. Therefore, ho took tho watch
to a Jeweler, and asked him how much it
would cost to hnvo it repaired.
Tho Jeweler put his glnra on his eye, looked
into tho interior of the watch somo seconds,
turned it over several times, and said:
"It'll cost you five dollars to put it in
"Fivo dollars! An' sure, I haven't a dol
lar." "Then you can't get It repaired."
Pat scratched his head awhile in perplexity
as to how ho was to obtain tho means. Sud
denly he exclaimed:
"Arrnhl I havo it PUshtcp over to the
pawnbroker's wid tho watch, and lavo it wid
him for tho money to vi tho rcimlrs. Ilould
