ity Who Can't Be Told Apart.
Arthur and Archer Young, of New
Britain, tw-ln brothers who are as
alike as two copper cents, or as the pro
verbial peas In a pod, entered Wesley -an
I'niverslty this autumn tn the fresli
man class, and the difficulty of distin
guishing them has led to no end of mis
takes. The Young brothers say that
the joke, being to them of about twen
ty years' standing, has become a tritle,
old. "." ' t i"
In college chapel they sit next to
each other, and If one of them happens
to "cut," the chapel monitor, whose
duty Is to record absences, has to flip
up a cent to decide which of them he
shall mark absent. Bolb twins are
on the 'varsity foot-ball team, and
though they are not heavy, they have
distinguished themselves as belli.;
about the pluckiest players on the
eleven. They wear similar bandages
wrapped around their tow-colored
heads, and their sleeveless Jackets uro
alike stained with the blue dye of
their Jerseys. The other day," in a
practice game, the ball was fumbled
iu a scrimmage, and one of the twins
fell on It Archer was playing hall
back 011 the 'varsity, and Arthur was
lined up on the scrub. A doubt pt
once arose in the mind of Coach Steele
as to which side should have the ball,
Unit functionary, like everybody eLse,
being unable to distinguish the twins.
Accordingly lie ran up to the mini who
was scrambling to his feet with lhe
ball, and asked in a loud whisper:
"Say, which Young are you, anyhow
-'varsity or scrub?"
One of the brothers had an entrance
condition iu some branch of his prep
aratory work and a date was set for
the special examination. The brother
who had the eoiiditiou marked against
him remained in his room, while the
other twin took the examination and
passed It with flying colors. This hap
pened because a mistake was made
originally In charging the wroug twin
with a condition.
A litve Beetle In Iron Ore.
Z. T. White, who Is now, or has very
recently been, a citizen of El Paso,
Texas, was once the ow ner of the most
wonderful entomological specimen ever
found since the creation of the world
a live beetle found in a solid matrix of
Iron ore! The curiosity was discover
ed a considerable depth below the sur
face In the Longfellow mine, at Clif
ton, Ariz., and fitted his Iron sarcoph
agus as snugly as though the Iron
had been in a plastic state when ft
came in concert with the creature's
body. The "bug" was of a dull, reddish-gray
color, and was, of courso, of
a species wholly unknown to the en
tomologists. According to the El Puso
Bullion, this wonder was presented to
a well-known scientific association of
the Atlatic slope about two years ago.

ColonusI White Colonus! rest and pee
Haunt thy green eludes aud thy low-
iiiuniiiiriiig streams,
Thy limpid w aters gurgle sweet surcease
From toil ami pain. The gentle-guarding
Hover with drowsy wings above thy bow
ers. Where dark the pine, his leaf-laced
hhiidow throws.
With low love -litanies the hosom'd hour
Cradle the 'turhed soul to soft repose.
Here lie earth's fairest home, here ever
Thro' dreamy summer woods slave-charmed
and still,
The Imperial bird of song that constant
The darkling thicket by the babbling rill.
Here, here, Idoneus! pour in slumber deep
On mortal eyes, thy dark immortal sleep.

Some Other Day.
There are wonderful thiufa we are going
to do,
Some other day;
And horhors we hope to drift into
Some other day.
With folded hands and oars thut trail.
We watch and wait for a favoring tale
To fill the folds of an idle sail ,
I Some other duy. i

We know we must toil if ever w win 1
Some other day.
But we say to ourselves there' time to
Home other day;
And so, deferring, we loiter on,
Until at last we find withdrawn
The strength of the hope we leaned upon
Some other day.
And when we are old and our race is run
Some othiy duy,
We fret for the thiugsthat might have
been done
Some other day.
WTe trace the pnth that leads us wher
The beckoning hand of grim despair
Leads us yonder, out of the here,
Some other day.

A pair of wandering Willies sought
All labor hard to shun
Two souls with but a single thought,
Two tramps that heat a one.

I looked and saw a splendid pageantry
Of beautiful women and of lordly men.
Taking their pleasure iu a flowery plain,
Where poppies and the red anemone,
And many another leaf of cramolsy,
Flickered shout tholr feet, aud gav
their stain
To heels of iron or satin, and the grain
Of silken garments floating fur and fre.
As In the dance they wove themselves, or
By twos together, or lightly smiled and
Or curtsied to each other, or else played
At games of mirth and pastime, unafraid
In their delight; and all so high and
They seemed scarce of the earth where
on they trod.
I looked again and saw that flowery pac
Stirring, as if alive, beneath the tread
That rested now upon an old man's
And upon a baby's gasping face,
Or mother's bosom, or the rounded grace
Of a girl's throat; and what had seemed
the red
Of flowers wn blood. In gout and
gushes shed
From hearts that broke under that frolic
And now and then from out the dreadful
An arm or brow wa lifted from th
As if to strike in madness, or implore
For mercy; and anon some Buffering
Heaved from ths mas and souk; and a

Where wa it I kissed her?
Or wa it her sister?
Mayhap 'twn neither
Not like me eithor
Or could I have missed her?
'Twas a rnre osculation,
A kls of persuasion,
Though I have forgot
I know I ought not
Who cntised the station?
And now I'm despairing,
My mind 'tis impairing,
Since If it were she
At once I could be
Nw kisses declaring,
And now I remember,
It wa in Deccmher,
Somewhere In the South
And full In the month,
'Tw there that I kissed her,
Both sh and her lister.
