A roaring, blustering beast of March
Set free from out a cloud bans arch
In pallid allien; aa dim of dye
And cold an frosted violet's eye.
A lion March that shakes bin mane
To fright thone steeds of golden rein.
Whose charloteur drives on apure.
With steady splendor, godlike grace.
For sand by sand, aud hour by boor.
And day by day, Apollo's power
Rrpels the dark, encrouching tiii;ht .
With long and longer shafts of light.
The lion halts. His rolling eyes
Are fixed us with a spell's surprise.
For emt-mill grannus rock aud rise
Hneath his feet like lullabies.
The Honthing zephyrs charm Lis ear;
The Psyche butterflies appear
On restless win in aflame, and fain
To search for missing Love again;
The blosHom bells are swaying tine
To rhythms of some thought (Uvine.
The lion in the path of Spring
Has couched, and low is listening
To melodies, like waterfalls.
Of choiring birds, who.se crystal calls
Make herald's way before her feet
Who comes like Una, pore and sweet.
In bluish hajw her lucent veil
And trailing garments virginal .
Of green and while, all blossom wreathed
The fairest fancy heaven hath breathed
Or earth has crowned. The lion dumb.
With desert vision, sees her come.
Beside him sweeps her fragrant gown;
Her hand is laid like thistledown
t'lK)U his head. Ob. wondrous sightl
His balphurous mane to fleeces white
As those imparked in yonder blue.
New dipt in Flora's mountain dew.
Has changed: his eyes are mild and calm;
The lion stands confessed a lamb.

Why Southerners Ifave Good Voice.
Life in the county, especially in our
aouthern country, where people lived
far apart and were employed oftentimes
at a considerable distance from one an
other, and from the houses or homes in
which they ate and slept, tended, by ex
ercise in communicating with one an
other, to strengthen and improve the
voices for high and prolonged notes. A
wiuer range to the vocal Bounds was
constantly afforded and frequently re
Hallooing, screaming, yelling for one
person or another, to their dogs, or at
some of their cattle on the plantation,
with the accompanying reverberations
from hilltops, over valleys and plains,
were familiar sounds throughout the
farming districts of the south in the
days gone by. It used to be said of my
father's old negro foreman that he could
be distinctly understood a mile or more
Hunting, which was enjoyed and in
dulged in more or less by nearly every
citizen of the south, was also conducive
to this characteristic development. Br.

Worms Eat Lead Pipes.
In The Gesundheits Ingenieur the fact
is communicated by a correspondent
that when tracing the leaky places in a
lead pipe there was found in one of the
leaks a live woodworm with its head
protruding in the wall of the piping, the
outer opening of the cavity being of ob
long form 7 by 4 millimeters, and the
inner surface of the same showing fine
indentures. That similar cases have oc
casionally been met with appears to be
the case, the fact being stated in one of
the best known German text books of
technical chemistry that certain wood
worms sirex gigas perforate sheet
lead, the holes produced showing a
ough surface, with fine indentures in
le instance holes up to 6 millimeters
meter being found in sheet lead, the

John DiUlon In "Wanted, the Earth'
at the Waterman He Pleases
Someboby made the remark that j
the trip of John Dillon to the Keeley
Institute had had the effect of dul
ling the comedian's faculties as an
actor. If that somebody had seeu
old John in "Wanted, the Earth"
last night at the Waterman, he
would have had occasion to reverse
his opinion. Dillion has lost none
oi nis oia lime numor ana ts as
sparkling and witt3r as ever. He
should, however, get a new play.
Wanted, the Karth" is one of the
old standbys in the comedy-drama
and while it is a good one, it has
been seen here so often as to spoil
its effect. Dilliou's support was of
the average. Ida May Blake, the
soubrette, was very fair in her line.
Alice Irving, as Gladys Ken ward,
did several pieces of acting to per
fection as did William Saunders, as
Jack Wilder. . The audience was a
fairly good sized one and seemed to
appreciate Dillion's wit immensleyt
Laughter and applause abounded
"His Nibs, the Baron" comes May
2. It is a faice-comedy and is said
to be a fairly good play.

Preaching Over Old Sermons.
The scandal arising from bought ser
mons, which unf ortunatly . are often
sold in duplicate and even triplicate,
has caused at least one bishop hence
forth to forbid their use in his diocese.
He has no objection to his clergy preach
ing the sermons of other divines if the
authorship is acknowledged, and ever
considers tlt an original discourse once
a week is as much as can be reasonably
expected from the average curate; but
there must be no duplicity in the mat
ter. There nas always been a danger in
the purehasod sermon. . - -
- Recognition of the borrowed work, if
from . a well known - source, is also al

Welsh curate confessed to the following
ingenious plan for evading it, whicL
must, however, have given him a -great
deal of . trouble: - 'Tve got a volume of
sermons by .one Tillotson, and very
good -book it is; eo I translate them into
Welsh. and then -back again into Eng
lish, after which Tillotson himself would
not .know them again." Illustrated
