A SNOW LEGEND.
O yo cloud* that float above me,
0 ye winds that round mo blow.
Can yo tell me from what quarter
Comes inc driving snow?
••From tho north, inquiring maiden.
Where an old man, stooping low
By his grate, mourns e'er the ashes,*
Said the winds that blow.
“For the snowflakes are the ashes
Of the summer’s glow.
M8ec him as he ctoops and shivers.
Hubs bis wrinkled hands and sighs—
‘Just one ember left a-glowing,
And that ember dies;
Como baelf, summer, come and warm me,
1 am cold,’ lie cries.
“Then ho catches up the bellows.
Tries to make tho embers glow;
Only sets the ashes whirling.
Dancing high and low.
And the ashes of the summer
Arc the flakes of snow.”
—Anna Temple in Youth’s Companion.
It was the third week of my first visit
to- Paris. The days had been passed
mo»l pleasantly among the masters in
painting and sculpture in the Louvre,
among the modern paintings in the gal
leries of the Luxembourg, and in wan
dering about the parks and libraries.
When I had first gone to the Hotel Nor
mandie, I had found there my classmate
and close friend, Melville, and we had
whiled away several days most pleas
antly in talking over our college joys
and comparing our experiences since we
had parted on the university campus the
day of our graduation.
When I first met him in the eorridoT
of the hotel I noticed on his cravat a
curious pin which at once attracted my
attention In form it was oval, about a
quarter of an inch in length, chocolate
in color, and in the dim light of the hall
seemed highly polished. It being so dif
ferent from the usual scarfpin, I asked
him where he got it. He did not reply
to my question, but taking the pin from
his tie handed it to me. Upon examin
ing it I found its surface covered with
what I took to be Egyptian hieroglyph
ics. Having given no little attention to
the study of these curious signs, my in
terest was at once aroused, and I ex
pressed a desire to keep it for a few
days in order to examine it with a glass.
But Melville, with a strange smile, took
it without a word and put it back in his
cravat, and I of course did not insist on
A few days later Melville met me in
the corridor, stopped me and said that
by the morning paper he had noticed
that the day before an acquaintance of
his, having lost his last napoleon in the
Casino, had committed suicide at Monte
Carlo; that he believed he was the only
person in Europe who knew the unfor
tunate gambler, and he had decided to
go to Monte Carlo and care for the body.
While we were talking we had walked
to the front of the hotel, and Melville
had called a cab. Just before he got in
he handed me his cravat pin, and with a
smile said I could examine it while he
was gone, and as he drove off he called
back that he would be back in a few
days and cautioned me to be careful of
Two weeks from that day I received a
telegram frv.-n Melville saying he would
be back that evening and asking me to
procure seats for “Faust" at the Grand
Opera. In the meantime I had given
considerable attention to the pin and had
concluded that it was without doubt a
genuine Egyptian charm or fetich not
less than 3,000 years old. Such stones
being very rar e and valuable, I was sur
prised that my friend had intrusted it to
me at all, and I was anxious to learn
where he had obtained so great a curi
That afternoon I determined to take
a walk in the garden of the Tuilleries,
which is not far from the Normandie.
After an exhilarating walk I had taken
a seat and drawn a book from my pock
et, intending to read an hour before re
turning for dinner, but my attention was
soon drawn from my book by a young
lady sitting diagonally across the prom
enade from me. She had taken the seat
soon after I sat down, and was looking
in such a direction that I could get only
a profile view of her face, which seemed
strangely familiar to me. After reading
and watching alternately for half an
hour I determined to get a better view
of her face in order to decide whether I
was mistaken in my idea that I had seen
As I started toward her she rose and
walked in the same direction. I had fol
lowed her perhaps 30 yards when she
stumbled, and the next instant with a
groan fell to the ground. As qnickly as
possible I had lifted her np and helped
her to a seat near by. I then asked her
if I should call assistance, but she said it
would not he necessary as she would be
all right in a moment, although she
would be glad if I would remain with
her. Such a request I could not refuse,
nor did I care to, as I had discovered she
was quite pretty', and from her accent I
knew she was an American.
W'en in a few minutes I asked her if
I should call a cab, she thanked me and
asked if I would not be kind enough to
drive with her to 74 Rue de Blanc, a
street not far away on which I knew
were situated a large number of fashion
able pensions or boarding houses. On
the way she told me that her home was
in Massachusetts, and with her father
and brother she was making a long stay
in Paris. When we reached her number,
she insisted that I go in and meet her fa
ther, and I of course agreed.
As soon as I had paid the cabman and
given him three times the usual gratu
ity I followed my fair and new found
friend into the parlor, where I remained
while she went to find her father. She
qnickly returned, saying that he was
out, but would return in a short time,
and that if I would wait she would try
to entertain me. Inwardly*thanking the
old gentleman for being so considerate,
l was much pleased to wait.
The time passed pleasantly and rapid
ly, and I thought nothing of the father’s
prolonged absence, but suddenly I re
membered Melville and the opera, looked
at my watch and found that I had bare
ly time to get dinner, meet my friend
and reach tno play. I was very sorry
that I could not wait longer, and at her
request I promised to call tho next after
Rising to go, I took my hat and was
about to open the door, when I was much
surprised to find a pair of arms around
my neck. Half angry and wholly amazed
I hardly knew what to do, but hearing a
step without in an instant I bad slipped
from her embrace and opened tho door.
Coming up the steps was a middle aged
gentleman, at tl. sight of whom tho girl
shrieked and ran down tho hall. The
gentleman stopped ino and asked how I
happened to be with that lady. I told
him that I had met her in the garden,
had brought her to this house and had
waited to meet her father.
Ho smiled sadly and said ho had just
left notice at the police headquarters to
have tlio entire force on the lookout for
her; that two months before her brothex
had been lost in attempting tho ascent
of the Matterhorn, and since that time
she had been a manaic; he was keeping
her confined in a suite of rooms at this
house, hoping that entire rest would re
store her reason. He thanked mo for
what I had doue and asked me to call
the next afternoon.
Having eaten my dinner very rapidly,
I met Melville and we went to the opera.
During the time between acts lie told
me of his sad trip to Monte Carlo, and it
was not until we were slowly walking
up the Avenue de l’Opera that I told him
of my unusual experience of the afte-’
With a shade of that same strange
smile I had before noticed ho asked me
the appearance of the man, and when 1
described him he half muttered, “1
thought so.” Nothing more was said
for several blocks, when lio suddenly
asked, the smile being fully developed,
“And where is my pin?” I put my hand
to my cravat—the pin was gone! I knew
that I had worn it in the afternoon, and j
now it was mi ssing. Melville noticed my
surprise and said again, “I thought so.”
After walking a moment in silence he
continued; “That pin was very highly
valued by one of Europe's most noted
gamblers. Some months ago, on account
of severe losses, he was compelled to pari
with it at a very low figure, as its real
value was not known. I recently dis
covered it in a pawnshop, recognized it
as having belonged to this gambler and
bought it for the ridiculous price of 10
napoleons. One day I met its formet
owner in the hotel. He recognized the
pin on my tie, looked wistfully at it, but
said nothing. Several times after that I
noticed a rather pretty young lady
watching me very closely. Yon have
perfectly described both this woman and
the gambler. Now yon know where my
I said nothing; what could I say?
But tlio next day I called at 74 at the
appointed hour. When I presented my \
card and asked for the gentleman, the I
reply came: “Ze zlientheman an hees
daughter go’dees moruin, hut ze zben
tlieman leave ze note for monsieur.”
And she handed me an envelope contain
ing a thousand franc note, upon one
corner of which was written, “Many
thanks for the pin.” Both Melville and \
I were satisfied.—T. C. B. in Pittsburg
Illustrating the Solar System.
The solar system is well illustrated by
the following statements: Let 'the sun
be represented by a globe 2 feet in diam
eter. A grain of mustard seed at the
circumference of a circle 164 feet in di
ameter will adequately represent the
size and distance of Mercury. The earth
will be represented by a pea on the cir
cumference of a circle 284 feet across,
and Venus by another pea on the out
side of a 430-foot circle. Mars will be
adequately represented by a pinhead at
654 feet, and the asteroids by grains of
sand 1,000 to 1,200 feet away. An orange
at the distance of half a mile will stand
for Jupiter, a very small apple at four
fifths of a mile will stand for Saturn
and a cherry on the circumference of a
circle H miles across will represent
Uranus.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Profitable Pish Raising.
In conversation with an acquaintance
who is a fish culturist from a love of the
business, and who fortunately combines
the interest with a means of making a
livelihood (happy the man so situated),
he gave me some interesting notes. He
said: “It is a mistake to suppose that
there is money to be made raising trout
in artificial ponds for the market. The
chances of raising fish to a good size are
so small that nothing is in favor of the
undertaking. To a man of means who
can afford to invest the money and pay
largely for a few fish, and have them
whenever he wants them, well and good,
but to the person bound to make the
most of his chances, why, he will quickly
learn that yearlings and fry sold for
stocking are the best paying means.”—
Elaborate Dinner Gowns.
Dinner dresses are this winter ex
tremely rich and magnificent. Velvet,
satin and brocade of gorgeous hues are 1
bordered with sable and priceless lace,
and gold and silver embroideries give ad
ditional brilliancy. The bishop’s purple,
so much admired, keeps its color well
under artificial lignt and is seen at its
best when subdued by the lights and
shades that play over the thick pile of
Genoa velvet, and the same may be said
of the moss greens and sapphire blues,
which are apt to look harsh and obtru
sive in silk or satin.
Some of the paler tints, moonlight
bine, seagreen and cedar are also very
beautiful in velvet, as well as the shot
opalescent tones that defy description.—
Milo Was a Great Eater.
Milo, the famous athlete of ancient
Greece (bom 520 B. C.) was victor at both
the Olympic and Pythian games for six
times in succession. On one occasion he
ran four miles with an ox on his shoul
ders, killed the animal with a blow of
his fist and then ate the entire carcass
in one day. An ordinary meal for this
gluttonous Titan was 20 pounds of bread,
twice that much meat and 15 pints of
wine.—S,t. Louis Bepnblio.
