Tha more we live, more brief appear
Our life's succeeding stages;
A day to childhood seems a year,
And years like passing ages.
The gladsome current of our youth.
Ere pasxion yet disorders,
Bteals lingering like a river smooth
long Its graasy borders.
But as the careworn cheek grows wan.
And sorrow s shafts fly thicker.
T stars, that measure life to mnn.
Why seem your courses quicker?
When Joys have lost their bloom jd
And life Itself U vapid.
Why, as we near the Falls of Death,
Feel we Us tldo more rapid?
It may be strange yet who would change
Time s course to slower speeding.
When one by one our friends have gone
And left our bosoms bleeding?
Heaven gives our years of fading
And those of youth, a seeming length,
proportioned to their sweetness.

There was a third slstpr'ln the Mi

younger than the brother who came
next to Daisy. Kosy Mason was a gen

but with most of the neighbors. Natu

wise beyond her years, and her bright
sayings were told and quoted all over
town. Jo Davis was especially fond or
her, and pild her almost as much at

this little aister that Daisy turned for

to marry Emily, everybody knows It,
and we are all willing that he should,
but be is so bashful that he don't dare
ask her. Now, if you help him out he
will be fonder of you than ever."
"I think she would say yes if he ask

"Of course I do; but she can't if he
don't, and she would be pleased, too,

"Are you sure, Daisy?"
"Yes, dear, quite sure. And then

cousin Nellie would be flower girls. You
would have a beautiful new white
dress, and a big hat all flowers and
chiffon; oh, it would be grand. You
know I wouldn't ask you to do any

beads, as soon as you ask him, and If
mother and Emily are angry 1 will

Everybody will be glad."
During the next day or two Kosle's

thinking. The more she pondered the
more it seemed to her that Daisy was

that be couldn't
Fortune favored her. The next Sun

Joe and Emily had the parlor to them

Wireless if iegraphy, high towers and
electric lishts are some of the devices
which the weather bureau is bringing
into play for the Improvement of the
service. Prof. R. A. Feasenden of the
weather bureau is making experiments
with wlrcleF telegraphy along the At
lantic coast from Cape Hatteras to
Cape Henry, says the New York Presa.
This marks the first serious attempt
to communicate warnings to vessels at
sea off the dangerous coasts of Vir
ginia and the Carolines. It Is intended
to send storm signals to all the life
saving stations along the coast by this
means when the wires are down, as
they frequently are. Then each life
saving station can hoist storm signals
and warn vessels off shore. The towers
for the wireless telegraphy are being
erected, and a corps of experts will aid
Prof. Kessenden In his experiments. If
they are succeaaful It is probable that
the system will be extended all along
the coast. In increasing the height of
the towers at signal stations of the
weather bureau the idea is to make the
warning of the bureau visible over a
greater area. Already fifty high steel
towers have been built, and 100 more
have been contracted for. They will be
erected at stations on the shores of ttie
great lakes and on the Atlantic and
Pacific coasts. On these towers are to
be hoisted the flags which show by day
and the lamps which shine by night to
warn ; the mariner of approaching
storms. Just now the government Is
looking for the best sort of lens to use
in the signal lamps. Not only Ameri
can but foreign firms have entered
into the competition, and the govern
ment is sure to get the best lenses'
made In the world for the purpose. As
far as possible, electricity will be used
for the lighting of the lamps in these
signal towers. Heretofore signals have
been displayed from the tops of build
ings or poles placed In places not al
ways conspicuous. Now, with steel
towers seventy feet high built in the
most conspicuous place that can bi se
lected, great improvement In the serv
ice of the weather bureau la looked f r.
Where the tower is built near a city
or near a line of elertrlc-llght cables

will be easy, but In many places oil
lamps will have to be used, electricity
being unobtainable. Where electricity

port when storm signals are flying, or
if they do they prepare for the pre
