Paul II. llaynes' favorite hablta of com
position were to pace back and forth be
tween the standing; desk in Ids study and
the bookshelves In the library, or beneath
the trees surrounding Copse hill, if the
weather was favorable, and with pencil
aud volume In hand to jot down on a fly
leaf the llrst revision of a poem or as much
of it as the duration of the creative mood
would allow. Sometimes he wrote while
taking a leisurely horseback ride around
the house or through the woods, sometimea
while sitting In his armchair of Georgia
pine, but generally with greater ease while
walking. This was especially true during
the early and middle periods of his life,,
when he found H irksome to ait down for
aiiylen"th of lime and never seemed to
weary rf those rn dilative walks.
I have known b m to compose the last
line or the interim diate part of a poem la

however, w hat re.id. r would hnvedouhted
that it came into being consecutively'
Occasionally the choice phrasing of a
thought that hud Ladled him for days,
would visit him in sleep. My mother told
me that ho awoke one uight (he had been

this should come to me to be done her

me!" He had raised his hand as though
taking an oath.
Then he sat down again, and we saw
that he took oil Ids battered old hat. And
he spoke, but in a voice so low, so tender,
that none but the boy could hear. And
the sight softened all our hearts for it
was Christmas day, and Christmas recol
lections were crowding upon each of us
mid we ceased to dwell grumblingly upon
the comforts we had left belaud at the
post. From time to time glances were
shot at the place w here a common soldier,
as rough as uny, sat tellinu in a feeble
way a love story as old as Christianity to
a little child. It we.i upon this scene that

Colds Aro the ltesult or Carclessoc .
Contrary to the prevalent opinion that
colds and coughs aro duo entirely to t.'io
severity of the climate or to some unex

Icssness and want of thought.
Colds are not inevitable, but. could mtcri

The custom of muflling the m-ek v,.iy
closely with furs or niuiilar protection is
extremely dangerous. If tliougliL'.e.-siy n it,
off a severe cold is sure. A light w i-.e ";;lig,
sufficient to exclude cidd wind white p"r
mittint; ventilation, gives the lxt protec
tion. For Instance, if one sits in a he uteri room
while paying a visit or during the services
at church without removing any of the
many wraps which havu ls-en donned for
the cold atmosphere out ot doors, the re
mit la almost sure to be a severe cold, con
tracted by the sudden change from the
heated room to the cold air. Eva M. Ken

"When the Chinese llrst began to over
run California, the laboring men felt about
their occupation much as Othello did, ami
failed to extend to the Celestials that
courtesy which the youngest should ex
tend to tho oldest oivilialion on earth,"
said Chang Lee, the bright eyed .Mongolian
secretary to a San Francisco capitalist.
"They used to abuse us terribly. A favorite
amusement of theirs was to catch us by the
cues and drag us about. We aro not
lighters, and, being In a si range land, we
could do no better than quietly put up
with it, and hope Ihat our tormentors
would become ashamed and let us alone.
A lot of us were employed to grade a rail
road, ami I he American workmen used to
invaile our camp at night and abuse us
"One day a big Irishman named O'Fallon
came to see us and told us if we would
give him lifly dollars he would make our
tormentors wish they had never seen a
Chinese camp. We agreed, and he stained
his face, shaved his head, put on a Chinese,
costume and waited for our visitors. They
called that night as usual, and O'Fallon
took care to Ihj the first 'Chinaman' they
tackled, lie had beeii a pii.e lighter,
and the men used to say that lie could kill
a bull with his list. About a dozen got
around am! lagan to kick and cull hint
before he made a mot ion. Then he turned
loose, and the way he laid that crowd out
was line sport to witness, lie cleaned out
the whole lot, aud the nocturnal visits
wero discontinued." St. Louis Globe

Grown people ami children alike are ln
t lined to fall into a very bail habit of slid

That this Is injurious thousands of people

but that it is the cause of many serious ills
those who have Investigated the subject
are well aware.
Tho continual strain upon one slduof the
spinal column, with the corresponding,
compressions on the other, gives rise to
nervous difliculties and affections of the
brain. Dizziness, nausea and blind spells
aro not infrequently the rc.su It of this prac
tice. While tho strictly upright position
is undoubtedly the most healthful, it seems
rather hard work to persuade the young
and indolent to maintain It.
Ijuy people aud those who love luxury
