THE DEATH OF MARLBOROUGH. Tliu nun Millies on the chamber wall. Tho sun hlilneh ill rough the tree; No , though uiihliaken by the wind. Tho leavea fall iia.-elcsMy; Tho bellh from Wood6tock’s steeple Shake Blenheim's fading bough. "Tills ilay you won Malplaquet"— "Aye, homctlilng then, but now!” They load the old man to a chair. Wandering pale and weak: His thin lips move: so faint the hound You scarce can hear him apeak. They lilt a picture from the wall. Bold cyoa and awelllng brow. “The day you won Malplaquet’’— “Aye, something then, but now!” They reach him down a ruaty sword In faded velvet sheath; The old man drops the heavy blade And mutters ’tween his teeth. There’s sorrow in Ills fading eye And pain upon Ills brow. "With this you won Malplaquet”— "Aye, something then, but now!” Another year; a stream of lights Flows down the avenue: A mile of mourners, sable clad. Walk weeping two by two; Tho steward looks into tho grave With sad and downcast brow. "This day he won Malplaquet”— “Aye, somelhing then, but now!" —Walter Tliornbury in New York Ledger. Feter Cooper on Interest. Peter Cooper was always a careful and prudent business man. He was al ways opposed to the methods of many merchants, who launched out in extrav agant enterprises on borrowed money, for which they paid exorbitant rates of interest. Once while talking about a project with an acquaintance tho latter said be would have to borrow the money for six months, paying interest at the rate of 3 per cent. ’’ Why do you bor row for so short a time?” Mr. Cooper asked. “Because the brokers will not negotiate bills for longer.” “Well, if you w’ish, ” said Mr. Cooper, “I will discount your note at that rate for three years.” “Are you in earnest?” asked the would be borrower. “Certainly I am. 1 will discount your note for $10, 000 for three years at that rate. Will yon do it?” "Of course I will,” said the merchant. “Very well,” said Mr. Cooper, “just sign this note for $10, 000, payable in three years, and give me your check for $800, and the transac tion is complete. ” “But where is the money for me?” asked the astonished merchant. “You don’t get any money, ” was the reply. "Your interest for 36 months at 3 per cent per month amounts to 108 per cent, or $10,800. Therefore your check for $800 just makes us even. ” The force of this practical illustration of the folly of paying such an exorbi tant price for the use of money was such that the merchant determined nev er to borrow at such ruinous rates, and he frequently used to say that nothing could have so fully convinced him as this rather humorous proposal by Mr. Cooper.—New York Post. An Evening: With Andrew Lang. The spelling of the name of Miss Agnes Repplier and her singular felicity in epigram and phrase inevitably suggest her familiar nameiu Philadelphia, where she lives. This is the “replier.” Her dinner conversation in this respect is cel ebrated among her friends. Miss Rep plier, as is well known, worships at one particular shrine, that of Andrew Lang. Last summer Miss Repplier was in Eng land and had the anticipated good for tune to be asked to meet Andrew Lang at dinner. It would not have been hu man for Miss Repplier not to have made a mental toilet as she adorned her body to meet Mr. Lang. But a dinner, we are told, in England is a serious matter. Course after course passed unseasoned by joke, nnspiced by epigram and with out the grace of felicitous allusion. It at length came to an end. Nor did thecon versation have any future The great Andrew sat down on the flour and played for the rest of the evening with a kitten. —New York Sun. Flagpoles. With proper care a flagpole ought to last a great many years in spite of the incessant exposure to the elements. Of course the best preservative of wocd is paint, and a man who has a flagstaff which has cost him a good sum of money should see that it is painted at least once every 12 months. Flagpoles generally rot at the bottom first, and then have to be taken down to prevent them from falling of their own weight. The nsnal length of a pole on top of a high building is from 50 to 75 feet. It is not difficult to get a pole in one piece 50 feet long, but when a man wants to add 25 feet to that he has to do it by means of splicing.—Boston Herald. Graduated From Heidelberg. The daughter of the late Professor Windscheid, the famous German au thority on Roman law, has been gradu ated from the University of Heidelberg with the degree of Ph. D. Fraulein Windscheid is the first woman to be ad mitted to the old seat of learning with the privilege of taking her degree. She ■passed a brilliant examination. The university, it is said, will probably soon be opened to women.—Exchange. J. Hippisley says that he has looked upon the whole range of the Swiss Alps while removed from them by a distance of 200 iniies, and Sir W. Jones affirms that tho Himalayas appeared to his view from a distance of 224 miles. The “Cardiff Giant,” the famous stone man hoax of 20 years ago, was 10 feet 2>4 inches in length; had a nose 6 inches long, a mouth 4 inches wide and a foot 15*4 inches from toe to heel. Eleven million six hundred and twenty thousand families, with an av erage income of $908, pay 90 per cent of the taxes in the United States. . According to a decree rendered by the British courts of law, payment can not legally be enforced for any order given to a debtor on Sunday. The first man to succeed in welding aluminium to glass was Bradford Aic Gregor, a mechanical expert of Cincin nati. TRAINING BOTH HANDS ALIKE. No Good Rfiuon T«t Advanced Why It Should Not Be Done. In one of his essays in a book en titled •• Brushwood, ” the late Janies T. Fields wrote: “ If I were a boy again, I think I would learn to use my left hand just as freely as my right one. so that if anything happened to lame either of them the other would be all ready to write and handle things just as freely as if nothing had occurred.” And un doubtedly a great many of us would learn to use both hands alike if we had our lives to live over again. Of all the young women who came under my in struction while in charge of the School of Domestic Economy of the Iowa Ag ricultural college, not more than one in twenty-five could sweep properly. The ratio in this respect of those who came under my instruction at Purdue univer sity was about the same. And as far as my observation extends this ratio will hold in regard to women generally. As a rule, women, old and young, do not know how to handles broom. Their right hands only have been trained. Their left hands have been neglected. When a women takes hold of a broom it is with the right hand near the top of the handle and the left hand toward the corn, and instead of changing and reversing them as occasi n demands she always keeps them in the same po sition. Whether she sweeps to the right or to the left, the position of her hands remains unchanged. And her body is contorted and her muscles strained in the performance of an operation that would exercise these organs harmonious ly, if the hands were so trained that they could be used at will and were changed as demanded by the changes in the position of the sweeper. 1 refer to women sweeping merely to illustrate my point. The same can be said concerning the training of the hands in numerous other branches of women’s work that it is unnecessary to mention, and so far as the use of the left hand is concerned men are in no better condition than women. Men and women are in this respect maimed and handicapped alike. Why should such a state of things exist? Why, in this age of manual training, should weover j look and neglect the education of the | left hand and continue to train the right hand at the expense of the left? No physician or physiologist has ever given a sensible reason for so doing, | and we seem to adhere to the custom | merely because it has been carried down to ns by our ancestors.—Jenuess Miller Monthly. A Smuggling Scheme. Passing through Hudson street with a friend, I chanced to pass the establish ment of a firm of “folders and repacfe [ ers’" of drygoods. Before the door were j a hundred or more little bales of goods, I bearing odd markings, but showing that ! they were destined for a firm in Texas, doing business in a town near the Mex ican line. “Do you know,” asked my compan ! ion, “why those goods are put up in such small packages?” ! Upon replying in the negative he con : tinued:"They are to be smuggled across the Mexican line. The goods are pur chased in their original packages and 1 delivered here. The wooden boxes are discarded, and the goods subjected to ; hydraulic pressure and baled. Each ; bale contains about 30 pieces, or half the i number of an ordinary dry goods case. I “The goods are then shipped to Tex i as, and all marks removed. When all is arranged, some night the little bales are slung across the backs of males, two bales to each animal, and with an armed escort the train proceeds over the border to some distributing point in Mexico, where the goods are sold to Mex ican traders at a good profit. “Smuggling in this manner is quite extensively carried on between this country and Mexico, the United States getting in return for its dry goods, which are the most easily handled, cheap Mexican coffee and cigars. ’’—New York Herald. America’s Only Frostless Belt. What is supposed to be the only frost less belt in the United States lies be tween the city of Los Angeles and the Pacific ocean. It traverses the foothills of the Cahuenga range and has an ele vation of between 200 and 400 feet. In breadth it is perhaps three miles. The waters of the Pacific are visible from it, and the proximity of the ocean has of course something to do with banish ing frosts. During the winter season this tract produces tomatoes, peas, beans and other tender vegetables, and here the lemon flourishes, a tree that is peculiarly susceptible to cold. Tropical trees may be also cultivated with suc cess, and in connection with this fact it is interesting to know that a part of the ! favored territory has been acquired by j Los Angeles for park purposes, and it is only a question of time when the city will have the unique distinction of pos i sessing the only tropical park in the United States. Strange to say, only the midway region of the Cahuenga range is free from trost, the lower part of the valley being occasionally visited. —New York Evening Post. Oscar Wilde’s tatest. The way of the wit is hard. Oscar Wilde, moved by the ready appreciation of the English people, has been led to make some remarks which even his ad mirers are not applauding. He has been making some observations on the subject of Puritans and the theater. After devoutly hoping that he would not "be offered a bishopric,”Mr.Wilde added, “1 quite expect to see any day in the evening papers, ‘Great Discovery In Egypt. Ten rnoro commandments by Oscar Wilde.’ ”—Exchange. Making a Sure Thing of It.

THREE OLD DEATH SIGNS. A CaM Where Their Application Furnishes Food For the Superstitious. Do you lmllevo in the supcrstiti' s connected with the house of d^aiu? The contributor confesses th it ho has always been skeptical about them, but here are three old si ns which propl sied death in a Wat ..ury ho.u ■, w..j . are almost retnurkablo in th ir coi”, dence, if not in supernatural sign, cance. A group of people were sitting in a pleasant room one evening in onecf tlx suburbs of Watetbury. where neighbor ly intercourse is often freer than in the city itself. There was a knock at the door, and another neighbor came in on an errand. Another knock and another neighbor, and then a third. Then some one remarked: “Three knocks and three callers. .The next will come in without knocking, and death will come in aft r him." The next incomer opened the door without a knock, and it was a neighbor’s boy, as strong and healthy a lad as one is likely to see anywhere. And death was behind him, though they did ”ot see him nor think much of what h.. i.een said. This boy’s mother has always been disturbed by an extraordinaiy anxiety and restlessnes at the approach ot d ath to any of her relatives. It has happen ed several times that she has been pur sued, as it seemed, through the h nisr. from garret to cellar and through all the rooms, by an incorporeal something which she tried to escape. No one could stop her or quiet her for a long time. A day or two after the myster ious fourth call at the neighbor's dcor, this mother, who had heard nothing about that incident, was seized with this intangible fear and began her per plexed wanderings through the house. In and out, up and down, she walked, with a frightened air, trying to escape —what? She did not know, but they agreed that death was pursuing some member of the family. One day not long after, the boy who was the fourth caller and whose moth* r had had this premonition was sick. Not very, but a little. His father was sent for in the city to come home. He was detained and walked home in the early evening. A strange cat followed him home, crossing his track and wind ing its way in and out ot his along the road. At home was another strange cat which had followed a sister home. They were stopped at the door and soon were joined by two more. The four stood there on guard all night and all next day with a dreadful patience and persistence, craving admittance with signs of horrid appetite, dodging into the house whenever the door was open ed, and kept at a distance only by great difficulty. They might have been stoned or shot, but that is not the way the old superstition reads. The boy in side grew worse and died the next day. This is not a very remarkable story, but it made a good deal of an impres sion on the contributor as it was told to him by a member of the family who knew that those things had happened in just this way, that they were old super stitions which still live, and who asked him if he believed there was anything in it.—Waterbury (Conn.) Republican. A Workingman's Discovery. Some years ago a tobacconist discov ered the utility of tinfoil for wrapping tobaccos. Theretofore paper had been exclusively used for the purpose, but it did not serve to keep the moisture of the atmosphere away from the tobacco nor preserve the natural moisture of the tobacco from the effects of a dry or heated atmosphere. Paper also ab sorbed the aroma of the weed and was not sufficiently lasting. Therefore tin foil was used for wrappers. But it be came costly and could only be rolled to a certain thickness or thinness, beyond which the ingenuity of man seemed to find it impossible to go. The fact was that no rollers could be made to sustain the pressure necessary to mashing the tinfoil to a leaf sufficiently thin to suit the manufacturer. Many ingenious inventors struggled with the proposition for months and gave up the problem as unsolvable, when a simple workman about the shop one day, after rolling two sheets to the cus tomary thickness, put the two sheets to gether into the rollers and made both halves as thin as they were before. Thie was as simple as standing an egg on end, but it created a revolution in the manu facture of tinfoil for tobacconists’ use ! and made a mint of money for the dis 1 coverer.—Philadelphia Press. The Lamp Rock of Asia. | On the shores of Lake Rangkul, in ! the Cashgar mountains, in centra] Asia, stands the famous Lamp Rock of \ Asia, Which is so called from a cavo in its side from which a constant stream 1 of pale, greenish light is emitted. Ney 1 Elias, the English adventurer, who pass ed it in 1885, thinks it possible that the ! light is due to some phosphorescent I mineral in the sides of tho cavern neai I its opening. The natives of that section have never attempted to investigate the 1 matter, each seeming content with the i story told by his father, which is this: | “The cave is the dwelling place of a demon, who guards vast treasures stored , there, and the light is from a diamond , worn in a band around liis forehead.’’ Elias’ explanation of the mystery is i probably the true one.—St. Louis Re public.

Tho ol<l timo cowboy is no more. Ho passed n bis checks with tho tree grass custom. The big pasture has intro duced a new order of cowboy, who sleeps in a house and “obeys orders" or quits. The old cowboy was the companion of bis boss and shared his pleasures and his hardships. No manager in this big headquarter rockhouse reminded him of is inferior rank in society, nor did any of the mod ern ranch accessories mar the common dangers, the pleasures and the freedom and equality of tho whilom cowboy and cowman. But tho ranch in the olden time was a cottonwood loghouse to cook in, and for roof and protection from the weather the slicker was used, and mother earth supplied their beds. The broad range and the overhanging sky answered for house aud home. A roundup in 1807-80 was not bounded by wire fences, but the boys galloped out of camp after breakfast, made a wide sweep, and all then drove toward a common center, and lo! directly at that point was g .thcred a herd of stock cat tle of all brands, ready for tho cut to begin. The high toned man was tabooed. I remember such a man appeared at the ranch of J. T., in Shackleford county, in 1 '.",0. He was a city fellow, and would say "Thankyou” and such like. His inti use politeness and high toned nonsense aggravated the boys mightily. Jim B. in particular—poor fellow— was especially fretted by his nonsense, as he called it, and tried to ridicule it out of him. but in vain. At last his resentment ripened into genuine hatred and it was hard to keep the peace be tween them, for the city fellow bad giit too. Well, one morning in 1869, at Moun tain pass, in Taylor county, long before any one lived in that section, Jim got awfully mad and gave the city fellow a cussing, whereupon a row resulted and blodshecl was barely prevented there and then. We got tho city fellow to ride off, and it looked like peace had return ed, but one hour later Jim B. aud his amiable enemy met off at one side of tho roundup. I happened to bo near. In a dash the city chap ran before Jim, dismounted, leveled his gun on him and demanded an apology or death. Jim jerked out two six shooters, but said nothing, and instantly the city fellow fired. Poor Jim rolled off his horse a dead man. I got to them just as Jim fell. He died instantly, shot through the heart. His slayer mounted his horse and "lit out." Wo buried Jim and went on with our herd, two men short, but with no discordant ele ment among us. Such was the old way. Tho boys were courteous and kind, they were gener ous and brave, industrious and honest, but they would uot stand any high toned nonsense. A new era has set in. Which is tho better wo cannot say, but one thing is sure—with all his faults, and they wero many, the old time cowboy was a man to be trusted in peace or war and was tho very soul of honor.— Dallas News. An Armenian Legend. Ararat, on© of tho most majestic mountains in the world, rises 17,000 feet above tho vast flat plain which bears its name and reigns over the sur rounding mountains. Early in the morn ing, while all tho valleys of Ararat and the neighboring mountains arc buried in shadow, tho white top of the Scrip tural mountain gleams beautiful in the first beams of the sun. The Armenian people tell this story about the inhabitants of Pharbee: Once the devil and a Pharbee man laid a wager as to which should first see the sun. The one who saw it first was to box the other’s ears. “Very well,” said the Armenian, and he lay down and slept sweetly, while tho dev il, itching to punish his enemy, stood looking eastward, and with eager eyes watched the whole night for the sunrise. Early in the morning, the Pharbee man rose, and pointing to the top of Ararat, which was already shining in the sun, cried joyfully, "I see it!” The devil was vanquished. The Pharbee man. with his strong hand, boxed the devil’s ears. Ever since that time, the devil has been afraid of the people of the Ar menian village of Pharbee. — Woman’s Journal. Congress Water. How many people know that out by the Greenough statue of Washington, east of the capitol, is a vast and cav ernous reservoir? Not one in a thou sand, but there it is, down in the bow els of the earth, and covered deep be neath the smooth surface of asphaltum. Away hack in the thirties congress pur chased a spring over east of the present site of Howard university. It is now at the bottom of the unused distribut ing reservoir. From it pijies were laid I to the capitol, and in a pond east of the building tlie water flowed anil was held for the use of the early Solons of the hill. In 1870 the reservoir was arched over and covered in, hut thero it is, and if congress has been neglectful of the i city’s interests as to a water supply, the reason is not hard to find. Congress 1 has its own private tap. Pipes run into I the capitol, furnishing the boilers, ccol ! ers and water for cleaning purposes. | There is an overflow pipe that runs into j tho pretty little grotto below the senate wing at one side of tiie main sidewalk and tinkles over the mossy hank in a miniature cascade.—Washington Post.
