■ Ho, soft of foot tnul smv of foot she tread* tlie hill* and hollows - The trees wave* b'ai'y banners giving welcome as she comes. For well they know that nil the laughing troop of summer fol lows. With lurks that pipe upon their pipes and crickets with their drums. The locust blossom pours Its wine, the drowsy air perfuming; The tlehls have all forgotten winter's dry and shriveled husk; And heating t»> on biasings a beetle comes a-booming To thread an aimless arabesque a down the ways of dusk. Ho, swift of font and sure of foot »he comes to wake the roses, Slio comes to rouse the brooklet till Its bubbles n tv a gleam; She comes to wenvo^her spells at noon until the forest dozes And all the golden miles of day are wrapt within a dream. SCIENTIFIC NOTES. The average cigar will burn for thirty minutes. While a man in smok ing it he can walk two miles at top speed. If a man started to walk to the moon, and smoked cigars all the way, he would use 90,000,000 boxes of matcher to light them. The stubs he would cast aside would make a heap 9,000 miles in height and 16,000 miles in diameter. Tills proves that if you would stop smoking you could pay the dressmaker's bills and never notice the absence of the money. Light travels at the rate of several thousand miles per minute. If a mes senger boy traveled as rapidly ns light does he could deliver the message, bring back the reply and have spare time enough to read n library of 40, 000,000 dime novels during his nntural life. A horse fourteen hands high can lift a weight of 6,000 pounds two feet in one hour. If the horse were 14,000 hands high it could lift the world forty feet per minute, and. If attached to rope wrapped about the earth, could pull It westward so rapidly that one side of the earth would have perpet ual light. A liveryman charging two dollars per hour for the use of the horse would wear out a pencil a mile long every month figuring up the charges. One pound of quinine Is $1.20, If a druggist does not want to charge you any more. If a druggist had 200 tons of quinine and wore to put It up In two-grain capsules at a nickel a piece, he would work a thousand years and •would clear $6,673,299. The farthest fixed star gives off two cubic feet of heat per day. If you had the farthest fixed star In your furnace, and had to pay eight dollars a ton for it, you would owe the coal man $60 at the end of the winter. The cords of a larnyx vibrate 900 times per second when the voice is pitched at It flat. When six women are talking about their absent friends the cords vibrate 92,000 • times per second, and if the vibra tions could lie confined they would create power sufficient to raise the Washington monument eighty feet into the atmosphere. The Limit. "And you really, truly tliiuk that 1 am beautiful?” she asks, while he holds her soft white hand In his man ly clasp. “Beautiful?” he answers, ecstatical ly. "Beautiful! Yes, you are the most beautifully beautiful of all beau tifuls.” “But you only imagine so,” she per sists for liis lino of argument is naturally interesting to her, if not convincing. "You could not prove that 1 am beautiful." "Couldn't I. though? My darling, if you doubt my word, go to all the mar ried business men in town and apply for a position as stenographer. If any of them has the courage to em ploy you I will be willing to acknowl edge that I do not know what beauty is.” Classy. The little herrings go In schools And sport .about like l'rlsky elves— Sea serpents, though, observe no rules— They’re In a class all by themselves. To brighten the eyes, mix whiting and ammonia; apply with a soft cloth and rub off when dry. This will give the eyes a superlative luster and make them look good as new. This applies only to glass eyes. L].- ■ " "Q SYLVIA AND THE SUBWAY By William Hamilton Osborne ■ □ (.Copyright, by J. 15. blpplncott Co.) It was a local; therefore I strolled Into the last car. There was no ono there, except, of course, the girl. The instant I saw her, I swung along with that shoulder stride that usually does the business. Then I started. "Great Scott!" I ventured, taking off my hat; "I didn't know It was you, or I wouldn’t have ... It didn't look like you. It looked like somebody pleasing, and gentle, and kind, and—” Sylvia—-for it was she eyed me coldly. "I came In here," she contin ued, stiffly, "to avoM a railroad collis ion. Here I am Involved In a social one.” She reflected for an Instant. "I didn’t know you, either,” Hho went on; "your head was turned so that I couldp’t see your face, and under those circumstances you seemed so sort of—handsome. 1 thought,” sho added, "that you wore Maj. Walcott. Ho—” “Maj. Walcott!” I snorted, for It must ho understood that at one time 8ylvla and I—but that's another story. I stopped. I was plainly, visibly ein barrassod. This was fiendish, this showing off another man under my nose. "Maj. Walcott and I were saying Just last Wednosday evening,” she continued, "hut—no. We didn’t talk nhout that Wednesday night. Wednes day night we talked about something else. It was Tuesday night that we " "How many nights,” I interrupted politely, and without curiosity, "how v* ' v- 31 "Look There—Look There,” She Said. many nights a week does Maj. Wnl £ott come?” "Well," she answered, "he never comes Friday nights." "What night was it that 1 used to stay away?" I queried. She interrupted me with a quick gesture. "I know a girl on Ninety-sixth," I re pealed. You see, 1 \.as whizzing hack on the other track. “So do T," she returned, "on the west side." "The one I know lives on the west side," I responded. “The one I know,” she continued, "is Grace Van Auten.” "Will wonders never cease?" 1 mur mured; "that’s the very girl I know; her house is the very place where I am wont to call and spend a pleasant, very pleasant, hour—or two.” “I didn't know,” she returned, "that you over called there." 1 saw that now the track was clear. "I've called there lots of times," I answered, "since last July." After that we were quits—almost. Neither said a word for a long, long while. Finally the guard put his head In the door. "Ono Hundred and Thirty seventh street,” he ejaculated. It appeared that she wanted to alight just at that place, and I—well, 1 alighted too. e asccuuea iu me sireei aoove. “I’ll see you home,” I told her; “it shall never he suid of me that 1 ever shirked n duty—never.” It was just six when she reached home. ”1 can't go In," 1 suggested, to forestall the possibility of a cordial invitation. But she didn't bother to ask; she saw, doubtless, that I had anticipated her. ”1 must go home myself," I said, still gently refusing that invitation which she had not extended; "I am due at Grace Van Auten's at eight o’clock. 1 must be on time. I was a trifle late last night—” “Bast night!" returned she. "Do you go there every night?” I shook my head with a determined air. “I never go on Thursdays," I re plied. It was n day or two later that I stepped into another rear car upon the subway. There sat Sylvia. “You seem to be long in this rear car,” she ventured. I took my place beside her. “Now,” I assured her, "I am just where I be long.” She did not respond. I determined that the conversation this time should be strictly general and therefore intellectual. “The third rail,” I began, scientific ally, “is tho thing that the world de mands—the thing that the world must have. Two rails alone will never an swer; the third rail is the spice of life. It makes things go—it Insures results. You take those two rails and they run side by side, and yet they never accomplish anything; they nre lifeless, dead—woefully monontonous. Along comes the third rail and—wake^ them up. Gives ’em something to think about for instance. The third rail principle may lit applied to every thing In life Now. Grace Van An ten—" “MaJ. Walcott," she returned, meet ing me half way, "We were talking of the third rail," I interrupted; "now, Grace—” "Major—she reiterated. But I shook my head. "The third rail," I insisted, “Grace Van—” “Well,” retorted Sylvia, in the kind of a murmur which is just unintelligi ble enough to be just intelligible, "she's just about as thin as one, anyway. If that's what you mean." That settled it. M.v attempt to force the conversation Into the broad chan nel of generalities was futile. I gave it up. I looked out of thp window. We were at the Ninety-sixth station. I rose. "Oh," she exclaimed, “do you get out here?” She knew as well as I that it was Grace Van Auten’s sta tion. I hastily sat down again. “Mere force of habit," I returned, blandly. The train pulled out. I was still within it, still sitting In the seat that was next to Sylvia. Suddenly Sylvia uttered an exclamation of alarm. I looked. Upon the platform there stood two people. They were together. They were engrossed In conversation. One of thpse was Grace Van Auten; the other MaJ. Walcott. Within our car there was a silence too eloquent for words. Sylvia was still gazing out of tho window. “Allow me," I suggested, dolefully, "to offer my sympathy to one Who has thus—” She laughed, but her laugh was forced a ldt, 1 thought. ‘‘I was think ing," she answered, "of you—” "Ah,” I gasped, with an attempt at a rapturous sigh, "of—me!" "And of—your plight,” she went on, coldly. Again we relapsed Into silence. The guard broke In upon us with a shout. He was once more calling out a sta tion. I heard It. I knew what he had said. "What was that?" I remarked to Sylvia; “what station may this be? I didn't hear." She had been gazing absently at the floor. She no longer prodded it with her unpitylng umbrella. At iny ques tion she turned to me, still with an ab sent-minded expression upon her face. "This time,” she answered, "why, this time I think it's—Yes." Hut that was not what the guard had said. Far from it. He had said “One Hundred and Thirty-seventh street,” as plainly as it is written here. "This,” I told her, “is the real sub way language. It’s strange too," I went on, as we passed down the aisle, "that for once both you and the guard said just the thing you meant.” She looked at me in a dazed sort of way. “What—what did I say?” she stam mered. I shook my head. “You have—said it," I replied. Once more we alighted and ascended to the ether above. It so happened late that afternoon that T stood, for the first time since last July, within the precincts of her h'onie. "I'm coming In," I had told her. And I wrent. Once I was there I didn't know what to say. Generalities, per sonalities, intellectualities—they all deserted me. Finally Sylvia came to the rescue. "That reminds me," she ventured, without saying what reminded her, “that Grace Van Auten's reception is to-night." Stie stopped. Then she went on. "Would you like to take me?” she inquired. "Would I?” 1 exclaimed. I was only too delighted. "What time shall I—?” I added final ly. "Oh." she replied, "not in a hansom. Let us take the—the subway. It's so much more fun, you know." I understood and acqulesed. I thought for a moment, and then, like a flash. I saw my opportunity. “In that case, since it is your sug gestion," I remarked recklessly, "you must pay the fares. 1 shall take the toll," I added. And then I—up and kissed her. “That's one." I said.—"your fare,” I explained. She seemed to compre hend at once. "And that," I added, kissing her again, "is mine.” We stood there for a little while. I was wishing that we might pay over again. "But, oh.” she exclaimed suddenly, "how stupid! We need transfers, of course. Don’t forget that.” I forthwith paid for and had trans fers issued. On our road—our sub way, Sylvia’s and mine—that after noon, we Issued ten transfers to each single fare. This took some time. That night, as we came back, Syl via looked at me. “How long,” she inquired, “have you known that Grace Van Auten and Maj. Walcott were engaged?” 1 grinned. "Just as long as you have Sylvia,” I replied; "for about six months, I guess.” "How many times," she persisted, “have you been inside Grace Van Au ten’s house?” “Counting to-night,” I confessed, “just twice In the last three years. I’m an awful bad man to call.” “But look here,” I suddenly de manded, “how' often did Maj. Walcott come to call on you?" “Maj. Walcott!” she exclaimed, holding down her head. “I—I never met him before to-night,” she said. When we reached her home, I turn ed to Sylvia. "I’m coming in," I said, “it’s very late, b,ut—I must come in.” Sylvia looked up Into my fate and I looked down Into Sylvia's. And Syl via smiled. Heart Troubles The heart may be weak just the same as the eyes, stomach or other organs. It often happens that a person is born with a weak ; heart. Then again dis ease, fevers, over-exertion, anxiety, nervousness, rheumatism, etc. weaken the heart. The result is shortness of hreatli, pal pitation, pain in the heart, or in some of the nerves of the eliest or abdomen. The heart should be strengthened with a tonic, and for this nothing equals Dr. Miles’ Heart Cure. "I had LaGrlppe last fall as I thought in a mild form. I was weak, tired feeling, and short of breath: could hardly go about, and a good deal of the time sort of an asthmatic breathing and extremely nervous. I began taking Dr. Miles’ Heart Cura and Nervine and now I feel so much better in every way. I am so thank ful that 1 began taking this medicine, and shall not hesitate to tell others how much good it has done me.” M US. F. J. NORTON, Freevllle, New York.
