sition offered him by President Har

Playing to Llszt
An anoynymous contributor to the
Atlantic Monthly says that several
summers of her girlhood were passed
in an old villa at Castle Gandolfo
which before 1870 was the summer
residence of the Pope near Eome A
Polish lady who occupied the lower
floor of the house had a piano in her
parlor and very kindly gave the lit
tle girl permission to use it every day
during the hour of her own afternoon
I was proud of being allowed to
learn some little pieces particularly
a duet from Lucia di Lammermoor
which I looked upon as a masterpiece
of subtlety and execution One af
ternoon I was thumping away at that
morsel with my eight-year-old hands
stretched at last to the full extent of
an octave and my eight-year-old mind
happy in the thought of having mas
tered all the technical difficulties of
the composition when the door open
ed softly and I looked up to see a
white haired man with a handsome
kindly and to me very venerable
couutenance standing beside me
I stopped playing in alarm but he
motioned me not to move and said
gently in Italian
Go on my little girl never mind
me I should like to hear that piece
over again
Half reassured bj the kindness of
his manner I began again nervously
at Lucia and somehow managed to
get through it
It is not bad said my listener
He took hold of ray hand and showed
me how the notes should be struck
and what I must aim at in prac
And now if you like I will play to
you he said and sat down and play
ed Lucia to show me how it should
be done From that he went on to
other music very different but won
derfully grand it seemed to me and
so on and on till stopping at last
he saw me standing there with eyes
big with wonder and full of tears
You have a soul for music child
he said study hard and will get
At that moment my fathers voice
called from the stairway I gathered
up my book to go The old gentle
man patted me on the head as I
thanked him shyly and I ran away
full of wonder and excitement
Afterward I heard and later still I
understood that the musical treat of
that afternoon was a privilege which
many would have envied me that
the piano in the tapestried salon had
vibrated under the touch of genius
that I had been listening to the
great pianist the Abbe Liszt and
what is appalling to think of had
been playing to him

The Czar Is Weak Not Wicked
A near kinsman of the Czar who
visits Kussia frequently and who is
well known for his frankness as well
as fairness told me a few months ago
that many of the things done by the
alleged order of the Czar were repug
nant to that rulers feelings The
princes conversation might be sum
marized in this way
Alexander has no idea of doing
wrong to anyone His heart is full
of kindness ne is happy only when
surrounded by his family circle
It is true that the foulest malad
ministration and persecution are go
ing on all about him but he poor
fellow is incapable of seeing them
He hears only the reports of minis
ters who know that he does not like
to be worried
The poor man is so burdened with
fat that he can scarcely do any
work his temperament is sluggish
he lacks intelligence when he signs
papers he has no idea that he is doing
ftiore than an exercise in penman
He is physically and mentally in
capable of supervising any depart
ment of the government not even
the military and as a consequence
the country is left entirely to officials
who divide up power among them
selves and do what they can to re
main in office
I only quote enough of this princes
remarks to explain how it is that
abuses continue in a country nom
inally governed by a mild peace
loving Czar for it opens a terrible
vista of what might be were he dis
posed to be personally cruel It
makes one shudder to think of the
day when the present czarowitz shall
mount the throne Harpers Maga
Many Ways of SpeUimr Cat
Those of you who are fond of cals
will be interested to know that as
these soft purring creatures look the
same in all countries they are also
known in these various lands by
names not very different from that
by which they arc known to you In
Danish and Dutch and Swedish the
word differs from our own designation
only in the spelling being kat in
first two and katt in the last To
the French the cat is known as
chat In Germany the cat is
called katze in Latin catus
gatto in Italian gatoin Portu

kots in Kussian keto in Turkish
cath in Welsh catua in Basque

Four Big SHver Tips
John Chapman of Wyoming relates
a thrilling experience his wife had re
cently with four silver tip bears a
she bear and three cubs
John was away from home at the
time After eating an early supper
Mrs Chapman stepped outside the
kitchen door intending to place a
pan of milk in an outhouse She had
just closed the door of the kitchen
when looking up she was confronted
by four bears all resting upon their
haunches and within a few feet of
She screamed and rushed into the
house and told the hired man the
cause of her fright and assisted in
finding the cartridges for a rifle that
stood handy and then sank into a
chair exhausted and helpless while
the hired man made an attack on the
bears killing the old one and two of
the cubs
When Mr Chapman returned he
found his wife in an alarming
condition her nerves being at such
tension that he feared she would go
into hysterics That night she com
plained of hearing the bear screaming
outside and finally to satisfy her
John got up and taking his gun
went to the door where sure enough
was the remaining bear standing
out in the cold The cub made for
the bush as soon as he heard John
coming but in the morning the dogs
were turned loose on his trail and
young bruin was brought in to com
plete the family The cubs were ful
ly half grown silver tips and averaged
over 180 pounds each The she bear
was a big one as large as a cow
A Train
Did you ever ride on a train where
they stopped to kill snakes said a
young man a few days ago Well I
did While coming over the Red
stone branch in Fayette County
last week the train suddenly checked
its speed and stopped On going tG
the windows and platform to learn
the cause of the sudden stopi ag the
passengers were treated to a novel
sight The fireman with a long j oker
and the engineer with a link were
making frantic efforts to kill a large
snake When the tak wa com
pleted the fireman coolly to
his companion John Iv re is vhee
we killed that one yesterday
