world of satisfaction to ladies of taste

When the publishers decided to
issue The Journal twice a week
at the same price of the old week
lies, $1.00 per year, they shuck
just what the public wanted—
somethin# between the old-fash
ioned weekly and thf high-priced
daily. The success of The Semi
Weekly Journal lias been imme
diate and continued. It has dis
tanced every one of its once-a-week
rivals. It doesn’t take long to
convince people that a good live
paper every Tuesday and Friday
is better than only one a week,
especially when you appeal to their
pocket books, and give it to them
at the same price. Readers will
testify that it is almost as good as
a daily. The markets twice a
week are worth the money. Four
complete novels each year by
“The Duchess,” Miss Braddon,
and other widely known authors,
are worth the dollar. Its legisla
tive news is its strong point just
now. It is wide-awade, spends
money for news, and is always in
the lead. You can see its supe
riority over the old-fashioned
weekly. Everyone who subscribes
now gets a Seaside Library free.

THE LOVE CHASE.
Though oft I pass her on the street,
I seldom seem to catch her eye:
She rarely lets our glances meet.
Although bhe knows I'm passing by.
But though to me she does not speak.
Nor give a look my heart to cheer.
The furtive blush upon her clieefy
Tells me she knows that 1 am near.
*Tis true she’s full of girlish art.
A trait that’s common to her -ex.
But she is no coquette at heart.
Though oft her tricks my mind perplex.
I know she’s partial to the rose—
I’ve sent her some, both red and yellow
Yet out upon the street she goes
With violets from some other fellow.
And still this love chase 1 pursue,
’Twixt hope and fear continue wooing,
One day o’erjoyed, the next so blue
I scarcely know what 1 am doing.
But one thought I take comfort in.
And gloomy doubt gives place to rapture—
The harder she may be to win
The dearer yet will be the capture.
—E. C. Walcot in Soundings.
The ffeavens In the North.
From the last days of May to the end
of July in the northern part of this land
the sun shines day and night upon its
mountains, fiords, rivers, lakes, forests,
valleys, towns, villages, hamlets, fields
and farms, and thus Sweden and Nor
way may bo called the land of the mid
night sun. During this period of con
tinuous daylight the stars are never seen,
the moon appears pale and sheds no
light upon the earth. Summer is short,
giving just time enough for the wild
flowers to grow, to bloom and to fade
away, and barely time for the husband
man to collect bis harvest, which, how
ever, is sometimes nipped by a summer
A few weeks after the midnight sun
has passed the hours of sunshine shorten
rapidly, and by the middle of August
the air becomes chilly and the nights
colder, although during the day the sun
is warm. Then the grass turns yellow,
the leaves ehange their color, wither and
fall; the swallows and other migrating
birds fly toward the south; twilight
comes once more: the stars, one by one,
make their appearance, shining brightly
in the pale blue sky; the moon shows
itself again as the queen of the night and
lights and cheers the long and dark days
of the Scandinavian winter.
The time comes at last when the sun
disappears entirely from sight; the heav
ens appear in a blaze of light and glory,
and the stars and the moon pale before
the aurora borealis.—“Land of the Mid
Wanted to Brush Them Off.
Passing down a quiet street not long
since I saw two beautifully dressed wom
en approaching. They were clad in deli
cate colors, and spick and span from
head to foot. Between them and me was
a garbage wagon, and just as they came
' opposite about two tons of ashes was
hoisted into it with a result to the women
that was detrimental to their appearance
to a marked degree.
“That mean old thing,” said one.
“X know he did it on purpose,” said the
“My eyes are so full of ashes I can’t
see a thing.”
“And so is my mouth,” said the other.
But the climax was reached when the

These two women proved that warm

The Antiquity of the Lark.
The very first thought suggested by a
study of the migration of birds is one of
time. In tracing the migratory habit to
its origin we find the history reaching
back to the times previous to man, and
we begin to realize how ancient is the
aristocracy of the air. The lark did not
come over with William the Conqueror,
but his armorial bearing, if he thought it
worth while to have any, would antedate
those of every nr hie family in Great
Britain.—Mrs. J. B. Southworth in Al
Making Ants Useful.
“One year,” says a Florida orange
grower, “when few of my trees bore
much fruit on account of insect ravages,
I secured a largo crop. I induced the
ants to frequent my trees by syringing
the trees with a strong solution of sirup
and water. The solution dried, leaving
a saccharine substance adhering to the
leaves, twigs and branches of the trees,
in seeking which the ants killed the in
sects which infested the trees.”—New
The Odor of Fall Leaves.
What sorrow of old memories, of illu
sions faded, of dreams foregone, of friend
ships chilled, of gold turned gray, comes
into the heart as under the straying feet
the first of autumn’s fallen leaves breathe
out their secret! To the keen sense there
is in the new fallen snow its own odor of
cold, frank cleanliness.—Boston Com
The small town of Grifton, N. C., can

No one can have failed to notice that
the foam along the shore of the sea or of

the blue of the water may be, there is
the same whiteness of the froth at its

When ■ Man’* Advice Waa Good.
He who had much occasion to be abroad
in the day when the snow, rain and
Wind made merry with the population
of this town saw some queer sights and
heard some queer things. One of the
worst crossings in the lower part of the
city was at the intersection of Broadway
and Fulton street, where the slush and
snow formed an expanse of something
which told nothing of the deptli of the
mixture. Here and there was a hum
mock which might furnish solid fooring,
but probably wouldn’t. A young man,
essaying the crossing, stopped half way
between the curbs, and deciding that the
rest of the ford was impassable turned
back. As he did so he ran into an eld
erly woman who was close behind him.
“Beg pardon, madam,” said he. “but
you’d better not try it."
The lady gave her skirts an extra
twitch and glared at the youth.
“I want you to know,” she responded,
‘that 1 never needed a man’s advice,
and I don't need it now. Lemme by.”
The young man jumped to one side,
and she who would not be befrien led
went ahead. There was a splash, a half
smothered cry, a wild scramble, and she
stood on the sidewalk. But the slush
had gone above the tops of her stout
walking shoes. Grimly she looked back
at her adviser, and the wind brought her
remark to his ears:
“I never took a man’s advice, but 1
wish I had that she New
Both Parties Pleased.
A Portland lawyer says that not long
ago a man came into his office thorough
ly angry—as men usually are when they
go on such errands. He had called upon
a debtor-and asked him politely for the
payment of a bill of $2.50 and had been
abused for his pains. Now he wanted
the lawyer to collect it.
The lawyer demurred. The amount
was too trifling. It would cost the whole
of it to collect it.
“No matter,” said the client. “I don’t
care if I don't get a cent, so long as that
fellow’ has to pay it.”
So the lawyer wrote the debtor a let
ter, and in due time the latter appeared
in high dudgeon. He didn’t owe any
$2.50, and he wouldn’t pay it.
“Very well." said the lawyer, “then
m3’ instructions are to sue. But I hard
ly think it will pay 3-011 to stand a suit
for so small a sum.”
“Who'll get the money if 1 pa3’ it?
asked the man.
The law-yer was obliged to confess
that he should.
“Oh. well,” said the debtor, “that’a
another matter. If Mr. -isn’t going
to get it. I am perfectly willing to pay
The debt was paid, the law3’er pock
eted the amount, and, what is very un
usual, all parties to the suit w-ere per
fectly satisfied.—Portland Argus.
Mediums In Japan.
Spirit rapping vocation for women in
Japan requires little apparatus. Rap
ping is perhaps not the correct word, for
there is really no “rapping" at all—the
clients are simply put in communication
with any spirit with whom they desire to
speak. It is not necessary that the spirit
should be that of a dead person, but the
medium always inquires whether the
spirit whose presence is desired is living
The mediums always carry about with
them a mysterious wooden box, about a
foot or less square. Like the medicino
bag of the Indian medicine man, its con
tents are a secret to members of the
same profession. These women usually
have a bow of soft wood strung with a
single string, and this they twang on
the edge of the box like a caricature of
If the spirit required is that of a dead
person, a leaf plucked from a graveyard
is used to splash some water out of a
small cup that stands in front of the
medium. If the person is living, a sim
ilar ceremony is performed with a piece
of stick instead of a leaf. Then follows
an incantation, and the spirit proceeds
to speak through the medium. The
medium charges sometimes as high as 15
or 20 cents.—San Francisco Call.
What the College Gymnasium Does.
The college gymnasium is a place uot
for the production only of studious ath
letes, but of athletic students. A place
where an hour's varied exercise, a run, a
spray and a rub down can bo had regu
larly, and where a man may turn his
thoughts wholly from books aud studies
for awhile by a bout at fencing, or box
ing, or by a game in the bowling alley, or
in the handball court, from which he
can get increased capacity for greater
and better endeavors. Kept within its
proper sphere, it is as necessary for the
symmetrical and complete development
of the young “scholar in politics” as is
the mathematical recitation, the histor
ical lecture or the debating society, and
it is as legitimate.—Harper's Weekly.
Drawbacks In Acting.
It is sometimes hard work to be an
actor, for the thumping and pulling and
hauling that a person may have to en
dure in an exciting scene are sometimes
more than a mere show. Miss Selina
Fetter had to give up her part in “The
Henrietta” because she was injured by
the fall required of her in every perform
ance of that piece. A young leading man
who has been playing Orlando in “As
You Like It” for three nights is raw
from wrists to elbows in cousequence of
the thumps, slides and falls endured at
the hands of a brawny athlete in the
wrestling scene.—New York Sun.
To Find Out Your Future Husband.
At bedtime, having fasted since noon,
two girls who wish to obtain a sight of
their future husbands boil an egg, which
must be the first egg ever laid by the
ben, in a pan in which no egg has ever
been boiled before. Having boiled it
until it is hard they cut it in two with
something that has never been used as a
knife before. Each girl eats her half
and the shell to the last fragment, speak
ing no word the while. Then, still in
silence, they walk backward to bed, “to
sleep, perchance to dream.”—“English
