TME USES OF URALITE.
No pictured likeness of my Iord have I;
He carved no record of His ministry
On wood and stone.
He left no HCtilptured tomb nor parch
But trusted, for all memory of Him,
Men's hearts alone.
Sometimes I Ions to see Him as of old
Judea 8!w. and In my naze to hold
His face enshrined.
Often, amid the world's tumultuous
Some slight memorial of Ills earthly life
I Ions to And.
Who sees the face sees but In part; who
The spirit which it hides, sees all; he
No more. Thy grace
Thy life in my life, Lord, give Thou to
And then. In truth, I may forever see
My Master's face.

Sandy," Bald Captain Pole, as he
jchlfted his tiller so as to pass r barge
towing down the bay, "you'd better
ask Kate Haggerty to have you when
we get to port."
"There's na hurry," replied Sandy
.McDougal, mate of the schooner Ajax,
enjoying his pipe.
"Go ahead," retorted the skipper,
j)ettiahly, "you'll wake up some morn
ing and see another chap living 'off
, Kate's money."
"She's na got It yet," expostulated
' "But she'll have It when her uncle
dies and he's old as the hills."
"Hoots, only seventy and men are
Jiving longer than they did," said Mc
Douatil, "It's little saprlsed I'd be if
itie lives to be ninety."
"Well," remarked the skipper, "if
jrou don't want a wife with ten thou
sand dollars, all right."
"There's na hurry," Insisted Mc
Dougal, "If I'd marry her now I'd
have to sapport her, mebbe, for ten
' ;years before her uncle dies."
. Dennis Haggerty, stevedore, was
'Worth at least ten thousand dollars
and his only relative was Kate Hag
gerty. There was no scarcity of wom
en in the world forty years back, but
Dennis and his brother Michael must,
perforce, fall In love with the same
girl and she chose Michael. Dennis
never forgave them and carried his
resentment to the second generation,
never noticing their daughter, Kate,
not even when, her parents dying
very poor, she started out to make
0ier living. "Kate, thirty years old,
tlaln as to face and expert In sordid
economy, only knew she had an uncle
. .because people told her so. She gave
Kit heed to the news when she did
'hear it and went on earning a very
scant living with very hard work.
Now, Captain Pole knew something.
, He and Fergus McNeal were witnesses
to Dennis Haggerty 's will, which left
.-Sail he possessed to Kate Haggerty.
McNeal had immediately sailed on a
woyage to Australia and the skipper,
practically, was the sole possessor of
the secret. He knew Kate, and liked
ber so he did some thinking.
"Kate's getting old," h mused, "and
.In looks she's more like a barge than a
racing yacht, but there'll be plenty of
good for nothing' fellows to marry her
when they Jmow she'll have ten thou
sand dollars. They'll spend every
cent of it for her."
Then he apprised Sandy McDougal,
his mate, of the secret and Introduced
him to Kate.
"He's too stingy to ever spend her
mony," soliloquized the skipper, "and
lie Xmake her a good husband."
Sandy courted cautiously. Kate,
with a dowry of ten thousand dollars,
was very attractive, but his cl.aracter
tstic stinginess, made , him hesitate
' bout incurring the expense of a wife
until the dowry was possessed. As to
'Kate, who had. never had a beau, she
dreamed dreams and watched for
.Sandy's coming eagerly.
' The Inexpensive courtship, for San--dy
never spent a copper . on Kate,
' dragged on like a voyage through the
calm belt and Captain Pole chafed.
"There's na hurry," Insisted McDougal.
McDougal was overlooking the tar
iring down of the schooner's rigging
wben the skipper came aboard much
"Old Haggerty's sick," he whispered
.to Sandy, "he's pneumony and he's
too old a man to get well. Now 'a

she said, "He may get wull, there's na

went gloomily below.
Captain Pole's watch was a mas
sive machine to which he lay great
store and when it became out of order
there was only one watchmaker in
the city who was permitted to repair
it. After his abortive effort to excite
Mr. McDougal to action he glanced at
his watch and found it stopped.
"I'll take it to Smoot," he said, and
he left the schooner, scowling at the
immovable McDougal, who was still
working on the rigging.
The skipper had left his watch with
Mr. Smoot and was about to depart
when he remembered ' that Dennis
Haggerty lived directly opposite the
watchmaker. He glanced across at
the house and then he rubbed his eyes
It was not the evidence that Mr.
Haggerty was having some repairs
done to his front steps that caused
him to Stare, but attached to the bell
pull was a streamer of crape.
He hastened back to the schooner.
"He's dead," he gasped.
"Ye na mean it?" exclaimed Mc

Mr. McDougal was soon attired in

says yes, you ask for an early wedding
day. When this here news nets .out
there'll be a lot after her," and, he
added, with unnecessary candor, "most
anybody can beat you in looks."
Miss Haggerty was at home and
would see Mr. McDougal in the par
lor. Captain Pole chose to await
on the street the result of his mate's
suit and walked up and down In front
of the house. Presently McDougal
came to the door and beckoned to
"Well," said that gentleman, as he
reached McDougal, "is It all right?"
"I have na asked her yet," replied
McDougal, nervously. "Are ye sure

"We'll be married In a week," he
said. "The landlady is a witness of

Captain Pole was aroused early in
the morning by Mr. McDougal, whose
countenance showed great mental

his fist at the skipper.

The skipper whistled.

difficulty repressing a roar of laugh

Have you ever heard of uralite;
Probably not, for it is a new Inven
tion. Yet it is well worthy of your
notice, since It is superior to any
thing of the kind that has yet been
produced. It is the invention of a
Russian artillery officer and chemist,
named Imschenetzky, and its claim to
distinction lies in the fact that it is

and colors, according to the purpose
for which it is intended. In a soft

practically water proof (and may be
made entirely so by paint), and it is

Moreover, It can be cut by the usual

can be veneered to form paneling for

LIFE IN ITS REALITY.
Not the Succession of Days,
Deeds and Content.
There are moments in the lives of
all men when with closed eyes they
hear through the silence the pulsing
away of the hours and they, realize
the life beyond time. The smallness
of the present moment, made up as it
is half of the past and half of the
future, its wholly illusory nature, "so
helpless a kitten in the star-spangled
universal bag," springs upon one, and
the calendar upon which we mark out
our our sense of succession is a futile
blank. Birth itself is but "a sleep and
a forgetting." It is not time, but con
tent that counts. The one great birth
day of the world commemorates a
short life, not so much as half the al-
loted span of man; a life obscure ex
cept for a few short years or arduous
service and of suffering. It is not the
numbered succession of days that is
life, but the area a soul covers, its
stretch over souls and out beyond
space and time. It is, humanly speak
ing, that we tell of growth in time;
growth is in life, in fullness of con
sciousness, in abundance of giving.
For "the transient" said Martineau,
"is more to the large soul , than the
everlasting to the little."
But we cannot think in terms of the
eternal; even as in olden myths the
gods appeared to mortals only in dis
guise, so the life everlasting, pitiful
of mortals, presents itself to the dawn
ing consciousness under the symbols
of time and space. We live in illusion
of beginnings and ends. Harper's
Do Wa Foraet?

A Prodigal's Return.
Dramatic scenes continue to be wit
nessed as the result of the religious
revivals in Wales. In a Glamorgan
shire town, says the London Chron
icle, the pastor, in the course of an
impressive address, appealed to all
backsliders to return to the fold. '
Sitting quietly in the gallery was a
young man.. Moved by the stirring ap
peal, he sprang to his feet and begged
to be readmitted to the membership
of the church. All eyes were turned
to the suppliant, and the effect was
startling when it was seen that the
young man was the minister's own
Overpowered by his feelings, the
father was unable to say a word
and he broke down with emotion. The
organist struck up a well-known
hymn, at the conclusion of which the
minister, having mastered his feel
ings, welcomed his son's conversion
with tears of joy.

Oyster, Aged 25, a Foot Long.
A wholesale oyster dealer was siz
ing up a. new invoice yesterday.
"There are some old fellows in that
lot," he said, as he shoved to one
side some abnormally large ones. He
picked out one and measured it. The
shell was eight inches long. "The
age of an . oyster has absolutely no
affect upon its quality," he said. "It
doesn't get tough with age, like the
higher .order of animals. How long
does an oyster live? Well, I couldn't
say exactly. I have known Maurice
river oystermen to claim that an oys
ter undisturbed in a neglected cove
would live for twenty-five years before
it finally died of old age. And an
oyster of the Maurice river type keeps
on growing all the time. I have seen
some myself that measured nearly a
foot in length. 'Philadelphia Record
Turned Round by the Sun.
A large granite ball, weighing two
tons, in a cemetery in Ohio is slowly
turning on its -axis. During - the": last
five years the ball has turned 13
inches. When the ball was placed in
position an unpolished spot 6 inches
in diameter was left in the socket of
the pedestal on which it rested. A
year ago it was noticed that the un
polished spot was turning upward on
the south side of the monument.- The
revolution of the huge "polished ball
which it would require a derrick to
lift, is supposed to be due to the sun's
heating one side of it, the south, and
causing it to expand, while the north
side, which rests most in the shade,
does not expand to the same extent,
and thus the ball gradually shifts its
position by turning.

Wonders of the Hand.
The human hand is a profound
study. No instrument devised by man
compares with it for complication. II
Is a hammer, a vice, a forceps,
hook, a spring, a weight; it pushes,
draws in, and the fingers alone con
tain elements of chisels, gouges and
all the tools a sculptor requires in
modeling. From the elbow to the
digital extremities its movements are
produced by nearly fifty muscles. So
complicated is the cordage of a hu
man hand that expert anatomists can
hardly keep in remembrance Its In

emotions of the mind may be both
manifested and intensified. It is a
wonder of wonders.
