Children's Day at Gray's
"Where are you going, Oh' maiden, I pray?
As you hurry along through the crowded way.
Your eyes shine bright, 'your face is aglow
With smiles and sunshine you're happy I know."
"Oh, indeed I am, and so would you be
If you were a little girl just like me
I'm taking my mama and dolly so sweet
To Gray's store, which is on North street,
"For October thirteen is little girl's day,
And to all who bring dolls they'll give away
A cute little vest, either pink or blue,
That will keep her warm the long winter through.
My mama is going and perhaps she will see
Another one like it to just fit me.
But we're in a hurry to be on our way
And must not stay longer, so bid you good day."

Not far from St Thomas, a matter of
perhaps a anadred miles, -was fought
the most wonderful naval battle" In all
history. The Dutch, admiral detected
the enemy In the early seraing, when
the sea was covered with a thick mist;
and his gans opened fire at eace with
out warning. The fire was returned
with Interest, the ocean fairly quiver
ing with spasms caused by the shock
of frequent discharges. Somehow or
other the enemy's snots, which sound
ed like a bombardment; seemed to fall
short or go wide of. the mark, for not
even a splash of a ball was heard, and
the Dutch ships remained unscathed.
On the other hand, the Dutch could not
see the terrible execution their .guns
were doing until nearly the middle of
the forenoon, when the fog lifted, re
vealing to their astonished gaze not the
vessels of the enemy, but a great rock
standing out of the sea. They had been
firing at it for five hours, and the sound
of the return shots they heard was the
echo from the solid wall of granite.
They named-the place Bedonda, which
means sent, rolled or driven back, and
Bedonda it is to this day.

James Seymour, the artist, was bora
in XiOndon In 1702. He displayed s
fondness for drawing and painting in
boyhood and subsequently gained ce
lebrity by his skill in designing horses.
Once the proud Duke of Somerset em
ployed Seymour to paint a- room at his
seat in Sussex, with the portraits of his
running horses. Having admitted the
artist to his table, begone day drank to
"Cousin Seymour, your health."
The painter replied, "My lord, I real
ly believe that I have the honor of be
ing of your grace's family." -
This hurt the pride of the duke sc
much that he rose from the table and
ordered his steward to pay Seymour
and dismiss him. Finding, however,
that no one in England could complete
the pictures begun, he condescended to
send for his' cousin. The painter re
sponded to the message in these words:
"My lord, I will now prove that I am
of your grace's family, for I won't

The furrier was taking his stock out
of the cold storage room. It came
forth frozen stiff and coated with glis
tening white frost But there was one
beautiful skin that though just as stiff
as any of the others, had no frost on it
"I want you to look at this skin," he
said. "It is the kind that the richest
Russians, grand dukes, and so on, have
their overcoat collars made of. It is a
sea otter's 'skin, and it is so expensive
that often one coat collar of it will cost
300. It is unquestionably the best
skin in the world to make coat collars
of. Why? Look at this one, and you'll
see. AH my other skins are covered
with frost while on this fur no frost
whatever appears. And that's the rea
son why sea otter skins make the best
coat collars. The breath, for some un
known reason, doesn't freeze on them."

Observant and far sighted persons
distinguish at great distances a man
from a woman, not by dress, face or
figure, but by movements. The mo
tions of the most graceful of men are
ungainly when compared with "the sinu
ous lines that most women Instinctively
assume. It often happens that a single
motion of a distant figure, and especial
ly a motion of the arms above the head,
will instantly determine for a trained
observer the sex of the person. If any
one doubts this let him note the awk
ward, windmill-like performance of a
man arranging his hair and the grace
ful curves and deft touches with which
a woman accomplishes the same thing.
