Lighter every test goes by:

Dreaming and Doing.
An American officer who went
through the Franco-German campaign
with the Prussian army in order to
study the art of war lately told the
He became intimate with two Ger
man officers, one of whom was a grave,
elderly man of undoubted courage and
long experience in his profession. His
knowledge of military tactics made him
an authority in his regiment; all dis
puted points were referred to him by
his brother officers for decision.
The other, who was a young, gay
fellow, fond of cards and dancing, held
a higher rank in the corps.
The American one day commentea
indignantly on this fact to the old man.
"Why," he asked, "should P , a
man much your inferior, out-rank you?"
"Hold there!" said the old officer.
"You mistake. P is not my inferior.
Perhaps he has not studied the art of
war as thoroughly as I have; but the
little he knows he puts into practice.

In every school, society or commu

knowledge and ability, but who lack
the power to use them effectively, and
other men who, with narrower mental
scope, know how to use their small in

selves and their purpose upon their

Across the Reef.
The author of "Cruise in an Opium
Clipper" entertains his readers with a
. surf-boat adventure in which he par
ticipated off the coast of Formosa,
a landing in a new and dangerous place.
Another man Nelance and himself
were to accompany the captain, and
take what soundings they could as they
went through the surf. One end of a
long, light manilla line was passed into
the surf -boat and mode fast, so that
those who were left behind could draw
the boat quickly back again in case of
Each of us had a loose life-line fast
to his persoD, loose enough to let us get
from under the boat in the event of a
capsize, but still attaching us to the
boat so that when it was hauled back
we should be brought back also, though
probably half drowned.
Everything being ready, the steers
man carefully counted the rollers, be
ginning with the heaviest one. When
the twenty-seventh the heaviest had
passed, he gave the signal and we shot
head into the next one. Its a white,
hissing t p covered us fore and aft, and
for a second the boat was thrown into
an almost verticle position. Then she
came down with a thud that would
have stove any lighter-built craft.
As she touched the crest of the wave
the six oarsmen let go their oars, which
for a second hung well secured along
side. Then, the crest being passed, in
a twinkling each oar was bent in earn
est to send her through the next wave.
Getting soundings here was no joke.
When the boat was in her vertical
position on the crest of the wave, it
took me all my time to hold on; and
when she was down in the hollow, I
could barely get one cast before I was
again carried skyward.
About half-way across we met the
twenty-seventh sea again. I shut my
teeth hard, and grasped my hold tight
ly, as I gazed on the gigantic, white,
thundering mass. Completely swamped
in it, the boat was carried aloft so high
that for a second I imagined a somer

Wards t Craatry Girls.
In "pasting up my scrap book the
other day 1 came across the following,
cut from some good J publication or
other, in which I hope some of our dear
girl in the .country will find helpful,
healthful and broadening suggestions:
"The girl of 1891 can ill afford to be
petty. Each one has her own capabil
ities and her own limitations. Her
mental development, social : progress
and the good she can do are as largely
determined by what she elects to 'leave
out of life as by what she grasps. The
country girl must not allow herself to
grow narrow. This is her danger. She
must constantly plan for a broader
outlook. She must win to her
side the mates who have not
learned to see 1 as she does.
Village matters force themselves upon
her notice, but let her determinedly
choose which suggestions shall be en
tertained by her mind and activities.
Her neighbors' personal affairs have a
growing fascination for one who in
dulges in their contemplation, but so
have the broader interests of her neigh
borhood, and the fascination is a more
healthy one. The building up of pub
lic sentiment is peculiarly her work.
When you see the heads of the young
women of a town together over a sub
ject you may consider it as pretty cer
tain to be thoroughly agitated and ven
tilated. Can you also be sure that the
object is worthy of their thoughts and
energies? That is your province. Sol
omon's woman 'openeth her mouth
with wisdom; and in her tongue is the
law of kindness.' Aye, and is it kind?"
With a view to adding Best and nov
elty to foot-racing, the boys of Brest,
in France, have got up a hoop club.
They start out for long races on the
public highways (which in France are
better than anywhere else), and do the
distances in very creditable time. The
winner of the principal race last
month was a lad of some IS or lOyears,
who did the distance, some eight miles
and three-quarters, in an hour. When
one considers that he was driving a
hoop before him. and that the course
was not a cinder track, but a public
road between two towns, the time is
One would think that the French
boy, with his national military in
stincts, would not be content only to
race with his hoop; it would seem prob
able that it would occur to him to prac
tise military evolutions with it. It
would be asvery pretty sight to see
some thirty or forty boys, in uniform
dress, advancing and retreating, wheel
ing and turning, forming fours and
squares, and each driving a hoop before
him. The French boys use wooden
hoops, but iron hoops are better in every
respect. The present writer can even
now recall the feeling of pride and
pleasure that he experienced when he
exchanged the wooden hoop with
which he played with girls for the iron
hoop which only boys, and pretty stal
wart fellows at that, could handle or
at least we thought so then.
Curiosities About Gold.
Gold is so very tenacious that a piece of
it drawn into wire one-twentieth of an
inch in diameter will sustain a weight
of 500 pounds without breaking.
Its malleability is so great that a
single grain may be divided into 2,000,
000 parts, and a cubic inch into 9,523,
809,523 parts each of which may be dis
tinctly seen by the naked eye. A grain
and a half of gold may be beaten into
leaves of one inch square, which, if in
tersected by parallel lines drawn at
right angles to each and distant only
one-hundredth part of an inch, will pro
duce 25.000.000 little squares, each of
which may be distinctly seen without
the aid of a glass.
The surface of any given quantity of
gold, according to the best authori
ties, may be extended by the hammer
310,814 times. The thickness of the
metal thus extended appears to be no
more that the 5G6,020th part of an inch.
Eight ounces of this wonderful metal
would gild a silver wire of sufficient
length to extend entirely around the
The Rosetta Stone.
The "Rosetta stone,'" a famous Egyp
tian curiosity now in the British mu
seum, was discovered in the yegr 1799
by M. Boussard, a French explorer, near
Rosetta, a seaport of lower Egypt. It
is of black basalt, about forty inches
long and thirty inches wide, with three
engraved inscriptions upon its surface.
The first of these is in Greek, the sec
ond a conglomeration of hieroglyphics,
the third is enchorial writing, a system
used by the Egyptians in recording
every-day matters. After years of la
borous research the savants of Europe
ascertained that the three inscriptions
were three versions of a degree in honor
of Ptolemy Epiphones by the priests of
Egypt, because he had remitted their
taxes. This wonderful relic dates
about two centuries before the begin
ning of the Christian era.
Roys Need Sympathy.
There is little more pitiful than a boy
who has lost his mother. The neigh
bors come in and are kind to his sisters
in their efforts to comfort them; but the
boy seems to be out of reach of their
sympathy. They cannot understand his
grief, or that he grieves at all. He does
not sit around, or weep into a lace hand
kerchief ; hp goes out and cries on his
sleeve behind the barn, while his sisters
in the parlor are having their tears wiped
away by kind-hearted,motherly women,
with candy in their pockets. A boy is
so awkward, and rough, and homely,
and noisy; and when the only one in the
world who believed in him or his possi
bilities lies dead in the house, his heart
aches the same as a girl's.
The Derivation of Dollar.
Few persons have ever troubled them
selves to think of the word dollar. It is
from the German thai (valley), and
came into use in this way some 300
years ago. There is a little silver min
ing city or district in Northern Bohe
mia called Joachimsthal or Joachim's
Valley. The reigning Duke of the re
gion authorized this city in the six
teenth century to coin a silver piece
which was called "joachimsthaier.
The word "joachim" was soon dropped
and the name "thaler" only retained.
The piece went into general use in Ger
many and also in Denmark, where the
orthography was changed to "daller,"
whence it came into English, and was
adopted by our forefathers with some
changes in the spelling.
The Gift of Lot.
Cupid once hunted the wide world over
To find a gift for his love,
and at length he selected a snow-white rose.
Pure as the breast of s dove.
The goddess accepted the gift with s smile,
But alas! for lovers true.
A cruel thorn, piercing her finger fair.
The crimson blood-drops drew.
She wrung her hands with a gesture of pain.
While from the wound fast tied
Bright drops, that sprinkled the leaves of the
And changed its white to red.
Then cunningly Cupid whispered to her:
"Behold how the frightened rose
Turns crimson with shame to think It has been
The cause of such keen woes.
"Lo1 the bedewing blood lends It S charm
Rarer than that before.
In punishment then, tor its guilt, I swear
It shall blush forever more."
And thus fable fashioned the crimson rose
Love's symbol: yet take care.
Ve lovers, lest under Its sweetness hide
Thorns wounding unaware.
"What Women Learned by the War.
Mrs. Mary A. Livermore says that the
Sanitary commission was the first ex
ample of co-operative womanhood serv
ing the State the world had ever wit
nessed, and as an education it was of in
calculable value to women and to the
nation. While they were working for
the relief of the army, women studied
the policy of the government and
learned what tremendous issues were at
stake the questions involved In the
war and the immediate causes under
lying it. iThey maintained a
sturdy devotion to the national cause,
lightened the gloom of every reverse,
were undismayed by the discourage
ments of an embarrassed trade and com
merce, which brought faintness to the
hearts of men, and stoutly rebuked the
manifestation of a disaffected, com
promising, and unpatriotic spirit. All
the while they maintained a prodigious
correspondence with the soldiers in the
army, "thus keeping the men in the
field civilians," says Dr. Bellows, "mak
ing the people at home, of both sexes,
half -soldiers." Not only did those
women broaden in their views; they
grew practical and executive in work.
They learned how to co-operate in
telligently with men; became ex
pert in conducting public business,
in calling and presiding over public
meetings, even when men made a
large part of the audience; learned how
to draft constitutions and by-laws, to
act as secretaries and committees; how
to keep accounts with precision and sys
tem; how to answer, indorse, and file
letters; how to sort their stores and keep
an accurate account of stock; they at
tended meetings with regularity and
promptness, and became punctilious in
observance of official etiquette; in short,
they developed rapidly a remarkable
aptitude for business, on which men
looked and wondered. "Where were
these superior women before the war?"
was frequently asked. Above all, they
learned one another, and found the
world grown suddenly large for them,
as they 'formed friendships with
women from whom they had
long held aloof because of
local, sectarian, or personal jealousies
and detractions. They had demon
strated the power of associated woman
hood when working harmoniously, and
had awakened men to a consciousness
that there were in women possibilities
and potencies of which -they had never
dreamed. The lesson has not been for
gotten. The young women of that day
are the middle-aged women of the
present time, better educated than
their mothers, more self-poised, and
instinct with vital interest in all that
concerns the human race. The girls
born during that period are our young
women, who are coming on the stage
better equipped for the work of life
and with larger opportunities awaiting
them than ever before dawned on a
Unlike the wives of many great men,
Lady Tennyson has modestly merged
her individuality in that of her hus
band; but it is not because she lacks
intellectual capacity and scholarly ac
quirements. Her father a solicitor of
Hardcastle in Lincolnshire educated
her as few girls of that time, and when
Arthur Tennyson met her she was in
full sympathy with his high ideal and
lofty inspirations. She is an excellent
musician, and has written scores for
several of her husband's ballads, al
though only one has been published.
In fact, it may be said that had Lady
Tennyson been but poorly endowed in
the intellectual qualities, she would
not have succeeded so well in her life's
lot; she would not have realized the
character of "revered Isabel"
"Tne stately flower of female fortitude,
Of perfect wifehood, and pure lovelihood."
It has been said that clever men
should not marry clever women, and,
if it means that genius should not be
united to genius, talent to talent, the
aphorism is, perhaps, perfectly true.
But the woman who mates with a man
of genius and finds marital happiness,
must have lifted herself somewhat
above the commonplace to become her
husband's sympathizer and confidante.
In ministering to a great poet's daily
needs, Lady Tennyson has exhibited
qualities such as no mere drawing-room
dowager or society butterfly could have
shown. She has fed his tesihetic feel
ings, studied his sense of the beautiful.
In the large mansion near Freshwater,
as well as in the summer-house on the
hill overlooking Haslemere, there is
that sweet, calm, and harmonious
beauty which pleases the poet's tem
perament, and which only educated
taste and deft workmanship of a wife
can produce. In the white stone
house, with its ivied walls and
flower-bedecked terraces, equally with
the little Gothic structure that Mr.
Knowles, the editor of the Nineteenth
Century, designed, the traces of Lady
Tennyson's tender care are visible in
drawing-room and library, in smoking
room and study. Every meerschaum
pipe, every oaken stick of the master's
is religiously guarded from sacriligious
hands. With this self-samo spirit of
devotion she has inspired all her chil
dren. So far as the most Intimate
friends can say, there has never bees
the slightest rift in the Tennyson
household during its forty years of
union. Other women might bare taken
offense at the pleasure the jo-'t was J

Lily Langtry writes like a horse.
That is to say, she writes as one would
suppose that a horce might write if he
were to undertake to graj-p a pen with
his shoes on. Mrs. Langtry s delicate
figure, charmingly classic face and ex
quisite hands prepare one for a deli
cate, carefully shaded writing, fine as
tracery and small in design. But it is
not so with the lovely Lily's hand-
writing. . Grasping the pen with
strength and force, she wields it In
such a manner as to produce a chirog -

Mrs. Langtry's hand denotes firmness,
steadfastness, ability and artistie ten-
dencies. So, if Mrs. Langtry has heard
this, she is probably content to write
as she does, and even endeavor to make
her handwriting a little more so.
"Is Marriage a Failure?"
This is what a man says who has tried
marriage for fifty years and ought to
know something about it; "Marriage
a failure! Those who say so are poor
guides and poor observers. . They for
get that happiness means contentment,
and contentment does not rush into the
newspapers. Of course, there are un
happy marriages, but this only proves
that unfortunate couples have made
mistakes. They are to blame, not the
institution. I have been married half
a century, and marriage has been my
salvation. My wife iu the best friend I
ever had. My advice to men and women
is: 'Get married.' It is the only natural
state. All nature hunts in couples, and
nature is a far better teacher than a
corrupt and selfish faction of society."
And the man who paid this tribute to
womanhood not long before his wife's
death was the noblest Roman of them
all Allen G. Thurman.
Mot Familiar With Princesses.
The Princess Marie, wife of the Dan
ish Prince Valdemar, came through
Elsinore incognito on a recent excur
sion to Sweden. The station master
heard of her coming, and promptly dec
orating the waiting-room with some
calla lillies from his parlor set a watch
at the door to prevent the public from
intruding upon royal privacy. Shortly
the Princess and her sister appeared,
each with a small chip basket they had
brought home from their trip. The
brusque watchman blocked the door.
These surely were not Princesses. "You
cannot enter," he said. "Why not?"
asked the astounded Princess. "Be
cause we expect the Princess Marie."
"Then keep a good look out for
her," laughed the amused lady, and
went through tho common gate to the
platform. The station master con
cluded, after waiting all day, that tho
Princess had taken another route.
Mrs. Whitney's Innovations.
Mrs. William C. Whitney of New
i'ork has a notion that there ought to
be enough good talkers without mak
ing it necessary to have an orchestra of
musicians playing away during dinner
to drown the conversation of those in
the social swim. After dinner let the
guests be entertained. Mrs. Whitney
seems to have made a happy hit in the
number of guests she has limited her
self to for all the dinners she proposes
giving in rapid succession the coming
season, observes a writer upon current
society topics. Twenty-four people are
enough to be chatty and lively and a
few more tend to make matters formal.
With this number the rooms can all be
thrown open later. Another innovation
will be in the dinners, which are to be
lighter as to the character of the viands
and shorter in duration, so that there
will be some evening left to be enjoyed
A Woman in a Thousand.
Mrs. John Winston, an Indianapolis
woman, has received an endowment
that gives her advantages over her sis
ters which cannot be calculated. She
has a voice with an echo, and when she
speaks to her husband or children what
she says is repeated three or four times.
The power of a curtain lecture repeated
three or four times with a single effort,
when delivered at 2 o'clock in the morn
ing, must be apparent. A man would
either reform or take to the woods.
And what superiority Mrs. Winston
must feel at a sewing circle when her
turn at the neighborhood gossip comes.
For a woman to have the equivalent of
four tongues is certainly a rare advan
tage over her sisters who have but one,
if it is hung in the middle.
One of the new fancies in New York it
for gold and silver boot-tips and heels.
Miss Sallie Hargous is said to have a
set for her white satin wedding slippers.
They will be of gold filigree with hei
initials in seed pearls.
The hammered gold heels and toes art
particularly pretty worn with black
suede, and Mmc. De Barrios has ordered
a set to wear with her tiny black slip
pers at Richfield Springs this summer.
These gold and silver and jeweled
tips have a great advantage over the
jeweled and gold-wrought slippers
which have been in vogne for a year
past, in that they can be transferred so
readily from one pair of slippers to an
A Typical Suffragist.
The secretary of a State Woman Suf
frage association says in a private let
ter: "I have been 'driven' the last few
weeks with the most heterogeneous
mass of things suffrage work, alumnae
work, library work (I am librarian of a
religious society), house cleaning, pre
serving. I have already put up over
seventy quarts of berries. We grow
them ourselves, hence the quantity. We
have three small children, each with a
sweet tooth hence also the quantity "
We commend this instance to those be
nighted individuals who still think that
the advocates of equal suffrage are not
useful members of society in philan
thropic lines, and that they never know
how to cook.
