The Burlington's shortage on freight cars
continues all over the state. Not more than
one-third enough cars can be obtained to meet
the demand for grain cars. In some instances
cattle cars have been rigged up for the pur
pose , and giain taken at the company ' s risk.
It is really amusing to observe how readily
some people catch at conclusions. Merely
because Superintendent Campbell accompan
ied the special train to the Warner meeting at
Orleans last Friday , the assertion was made
that he came along to pass , indiscriminately ,
everybody who would join the crowd. But
then politics would not be interesting without
the campaign prevaricator and these things
must be expected and accepted as a matter of
fact. Oxford Sentinel.

In this same year , 18-18 , Lowell sent
forth also "Tho Vision of SirLaanfal , "
his first attempt at telling a story in
verse. Perhaps it is the best of all his
serious poems loftiest in conception
and most careful in execntiou. His
habit then , as always , was to brood over
the subject he wished to treat in verse ,
to fill himself with it and finally to
write it out at a single sitting , if possi
ble. Ho rarely rewrote , and his verse
lacked finish and polish , though it never
wanted force. It was at this time that
he told Longfellow he meant to give up
poetry because he could "uot write
slowly enough. " .
His poetry also suffered from another
failing of his. He was not content to set
forth beauty only and to let the reader
discover a moral for himself. Longfel
low , Whittier and Lowell all insisted
too much at times on the lesson of the
song. And Lowell knew his own defect
and wrote later in life , "I shall never
be a poet till I get out of the pulpit , and
New England was all meeting house
when I was growing up. " "James
Russell Lowell , " by BrauderMatthews ,
in St. Nicholas.
It is not as generally understood as it
should be , perhaps , that bicycle wheels
seldom or never are subjected to lateral
strains. They need to resist only those
strains which pass through their own i
plane , and in this plane only have they
any strength worth speaking of. This is
worth remembering when the use of
wheels of this type is being considered
for three or four wheeled vehicles , where
the conditions are essentially different ,
and where , in turning corners rapidly ,
or in going over ground that causes the
vehicle to be inclined sideways , a very
considerable lateral strain may be.
brought upon the wheels a strain . '
which the ordinary bicycle wheel is ,
very properly , entirely unfitted for.
This is to be considered also in connec
tion with devices for attaching two bicycles - 1
cycles side by side to make a duplex , or
four wheeled machine , of them. Neither
the frame , the bearings nor the wheels
of a properly constructed bicycle are
adapted to such use without injury.
June Vat r.
A quaint old superstition as to the ]
medicinal virtues of "June water" still
obtains in Hingham and other old towns ]
in Massachusetts. It must be caught
from the first shower that falls after 12 (
o'clock en the night of May 31. An old
lady of Hingham tells a writer , who
sends an account of "June water" to
the Boston Transcript , that it is bottled |
and used for sick folks mostly. "You
' ' in ordinary (
oughtn't to give 'em medicine -
nary water , didn't yon know ? Why , I'ver
had my son's wife send up from Boston
for a bottle or two when the boys was 5
sick. Then if I feel as if I can spare it
I use it for preserves. They'd never
spoil done in June water if you'd kep'
'em 100 years. Why , there ain't a speck
or a mite of dirt in it. It's real different
from other water when you come to
look. " '

Preaching in the abbey Canon Wilber- |
force told a good story of the celebrated '
Welsh preacher , Christmas Evans , who-J
dared publicly to express his thankfulness - j
ness for Jenny Lind's beautiful singing. ;
A member of his congregation , a straitlaced -
laced Calvinist , standing on the steps of
the pulpit , asked the preacher whether
a man dying at one of Jenny Lind's con
certs would go to heaven. "Sir , " im
plied Mr. Evans , "a Christian will go
to heaven wherever he dies , but a fool
remains a fool even on the pulpit
steps. " Even the sober abbey congrega
tion could hardly stifle its enjoyment of
this repartee. Westminster Gazette.
