Thomi D. Reed In Roma.
Behold me a I stand,
Where Kome has Blood
Ior twice a thousand years
Hehold us both:
Me and Kome!
.And then, clear friends,
I'leane give your eyes a rent.
Kome Iiuh her hiH'iory,
And I have mine;
Ihit Rome, although nhe Bat
Upon her neven hillH
And ruled the world,
Never Hat in the speaker'H chair
Of the J'ifly-lirHt congre.su
And bowsed that
Me-gnt herian nggregation
As I did.
And that i where I've got
The bulge on Rome!
Here in old Camir'H district
I Hit me down, and with iny feet
Upon hin ancient mantelpiece
I feel at home.
Me and Cienai!
Twin HtarH that twinkle through all
Two iron heels that trod as one
Upon the people's necks.
And then we got it in our own!
By gonh! dear friends, I don't like
that A little hit,
And Ca-sar didn't, either,
Although he didn't have a
Word to Hay after it was over,
For obvious reasons!
Hut Hrutus wasn't a patching
To Springer of Illinois,
Or Rogers of Arkansas;
And Ciesar has something
To be thankful for!
I'm with you, Rome,
From the I'assamaquoddy's
Tumbling tide of sawlogs
To where the tawny Tiber flows,
And we should organize
A Reed and Roman trust,
And swipe the universe!
Are there objections?
I hear none.
The ayes seem to have it!
The ayes have it!
Then let her go, Gallagher!
But I shall never think
That in that elder day
To be a Roman
Was greater than a speaker
Of the grand old Fifty-first.
And don't you forget it!
That's what! !

The two Sitzman boys, aged about
ten and twelve, were discovered hid
away in Bennett & Tutt's store last
night as Cap Bennett was closing
up. The boys were handed over to
the-police and were lodged in jail.
Their object could have been noth
ing more nor less than robbery.
Owing to their age, and the fact
that nothing was taken, Mr. Bennett
declines to appear against them to
day. Consequently nothing will be
done except to discharge them.

Weckbach room of J. V. Egenberger

town a few years ago with a pile of
scrap iron and a few old stoves, but

propert- owners to be found among
our business men.

If the committee appointed by the
mayor would wait on the members
at once with Mr. Berlin, our de

would be avoided and money would
be saved for the city. If the right
kind of zeal is manifested this mat
ter will be attended to forthwith
and then if the board has any doubt
about the representations made to
it, an adjournment can be made to
this city and the river looked over
by the honorable board. In
this way we might have work
begun at an earlv dav
and have the channel thrown
where it used to run. savinn-
the city from the danger of an epi-
uemic as a resuu ot tne sewerage
and villainous smells that hover
about the old channel durinir the
hot months. By all means let us
have the expenditure of that $50,000
this summer when it is needed. If
nothing is done while the present
excellent opportunity is afforded,
the committee will have to bear the
blame for the failure.

Two German Words Tliat STe.in Much.
German barbers in New York have a
curious system of signs and mysterious
words by which they indicate to each
otiier the tendency of customers to give
large tips, small tips or none at all. If
a new barber in a lare shop gets a gen
erous customer in his chair, a fellow
workman who has shaved the generous
customer before mutters in his ear.
Brunz"' that is, "lie tips." "Bnmz"
is a distinctively German product, and
till recently was never heard outside of
continental barber shops. Its greatest
merit is that it means nothing to per
sons who are not barbers, for it has no
indorsement from the German diction
aries, and does not even enjoy the ques
tionable authority of student slang.
German barbers in New York desig
nate a man wno gives no gratuities as a
"muff." Like "brunz," "muff" is no
word at all, and was invented by wily
continental barbers for the needs of the
shop only. The amount of the tip to be
expected is revealed by the old journey
men to the new ones by various contor
tions of the fingers and by low German
monosyllables of no apparent relevancy
Stones Are Composed of Shells.
The tripoli, used for polishing our ta
bleware, ia composed entirely of the si-
hcious shells of infusoria. The earthly
paint with which our houses are colored
is nothing but the remains of different
species of these animals. Even the hard
est rocks the flints show, when exam
ined under the microscope, that they,
too, are composed of the skeletons of in
fusoria. I once examined a thin sec tion
of a flint formerly used by the great
hunter, Daniel Boone. This flint was
composed of the shells of infusoria. The
gun, an old flintlock rifle, from which
this flint was taken, is still preserved at
Even many of theprecious stones, such
as the caraelian, owe their beautiful
colors to the presence of fossil infusoria.
