There is nothing more depressing
than dwelling upon lost opportunities
or a misspent life. Whatever your
past has been, forget It. If It throws
it shadow upon the present or causes

Is not a single reason why you should
retain It in your memory, and there
are a thousand reasons why you should

Childhood Incident of the Author
"The Bay of Biscay."
Ait Interesting anecdote of tho youth
of John Davy, who composed the fa
mous song "The Hay of Biscay," shows
how decided and precocious was this
inuslclnn's aptitude for the art he ulti
mately practiced with artistic If not
tlniutehil success. John Davy was born
near Exeter In 1 7(15. At the age of six
he evinced a passion for music, which
he sought every means of gratifying.
He wns in want of a musical Instru
ment and determined to provide him
self with one of however rough a na
ture. So from a neighboring smithy
he purloined twenty to thirty horse
shoes. From these he selected as many
as formed n complete octave and, hnv
lng suspended them In an upper room,
nmused himself by Imitating upon
them the chimes of the neighboring
church of Crcditon.
By these and other meanw he obtain
ed a knowledge of music which some
thirty years later enabled him to pro
duce many dramatic pieces and such
songs as "Just Like Love," "The Death
of the Smuggler" and "The Hay of
Hlscity," only the last of which has re

Chatty Traveler Who Charmed
Ralph Waldo Emorson.
It is related that Italplt Waldo Em
erson was once on his way to Califor
nia when he was Joined by a mini who
was altogether so sociable and chatty
that an otherwise tedious Journey was
rendered quite cheerful. This man's
name was Sackett, and he told Mr.
Emerson that he resided In San Fran
cisco. Mr. Sackett Indicated all the
points of interest along the way, re
lated a lot of amusing anecdotes and,
best of all. was also an utteiithe lis
tener. The consequence was that Mr.
Emerson came to the conclusion that
Mr. Sackett was as charming a man
as he had ever met, and It was In this
positive conviction that he accepted
Mr. Saekotl's invitation to dine with
him Immediately upon their arrival in
San FrnueiM'o. The next morning Mr.
Emerson was astonished and annoyed ;
to find lit all the local papers this
startling petsoiliil notice: "Professor
llalph Waldo Emerson, the eminent
philosopher, scholar anil poet. Is In our
city as the guest of J. Sackett, the
well known proprietor of the Hush
Street Dime museum. Matinees every

All now flowerpots require to be
soaked In water and allowed to dry
thoroughly before being used. The soil
does not hang well to the sides of gar
den pots unless so treated. Dirty pots
are open to the same objection. Let
any one try to put a plant with fresh
soil Into a pot which has been used
before and left unwashed, and bo will
find In a few days, when the soil be
gins to dry, that It leaves a space and
does not adhere as It should to the
sides or it. No plant can possibly
nourish under such circumstances. The
roots or a plant draw to the sides of a
pot naturally In search of moisture,
and growth of course Is checked If a
current of air Is allowed to pass be
tween them and the sides. Some plants
exhibit this tendency in such a remark
able degree that few roots are to be
seen, except a network on the outside
of the soil next the pot.
