A L'IRELANDE.
O Irlande, grand pays
du shillelagh et du bog,
Ou les patriots vont toujours
ce qu'on appelle le whole hog
Aujourd'hui je prends la plume,
moi qui est vieux
Pour dire au grand patriot
Parnell, "How d'ye do?,'
"Widows which perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
Some forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, may take heart again"
"A sigh sent wrong
A kiss that goes astray
A sorrow the years endlong
So they say.
So let it be!
Come the sorrow, the kiss, the sight
They ire life, dear life all three
And we diet
Here is a Wordiworthian sonnet, writ
ten by a Cambridge undergraduate, unique
for its aptness and the soundness of its criti
cism
''Two voices are there;
one is of the deep;
It learns the storm cloud's
thunderous melody,
Now roars, now murmurs,
with the changing sea,
Now bird-like pipes,
now closes soft in sleeps
And one is of an old
half-witted sheep,
Which bleats
articulate monotony,
And indicates that two
and one are three,
That grass is green, lakes damp,
and mountains steep;
And, Wordsworth, both are thine.
At certain times
.Forth. from the heart
of thy melodious rhymes
The form and pressure
of high thoughts will burst;
At other times Good Lord!

Quite unacquainted

A MAD MONARCH'S FREAK.
"At the timo tho malady of Ludwig,
II, tho mad King of Bavaria, was at
its worst, he gavo ordore that thirty of
his finest borucB should be put in the
best condition possible for a raco,"
writes Prof . J. II. Qoro in tho July
Ladies' Home Journal. "When tho ro
port catno that no further improvement
could bo aiado, ho bad thorn brought in
to an open tield whoro every concoivablo
form of noise-making dovico had been
stationed. Tho horses wore tiad to posts
11 nd tho King from ud elevated stand
gavo the signal that started tho flare of
trumpets, the booming of cannon, tho
tiring of bombs, and other outlandish
noises. Tho hqrses roared, plungod,
struggled to get free, and finally break
ing looso, Btartsd in the wildest of gal
lops from this bodluin. But toward
whatovor corner of tho Hold they fled
tho wore stoppod by noises juBt as
terrifying, and Bent to another quarter
to bo frightoned agaiu and again.
When tho horses bocame too tired to
run well, the King found tho spectacle
uninteresting and ordered tho orgy to

stables loBt a number of their mo6t
valuable animals."

TUB IMPRESSION DANIEL WEB
STER MADE UPON HIS
CONTEMPORARIES.
In ono roBpect Daniel Webster is tho
most Btriking llguro in our history, and
ono of tho few moBt striking figures in
all hiBtory. That is, in tbo impression
ho made on ovorybody that, groat as
wore hiB achiovomonte, ho whs himself
greater than his greatest aahiovoment.
Franklin, Webster and Emorson aro
tho threo groat New Englanders. Each
of thorn whs a great public teacher. If
Webster did not lack, at lonst bo did
not manifest, Franklin's wondorful
common-sonBo, as applied to common
things and common life. Ho bad not
Emerson's ptofound spiritual discern
mont or wondorful poetic instinct. But
his iutolloct Booms liko a vast quarry
When you havo excavated tho groat
rocks at tho surface, you know there is
an inoxhaustible supply loft. When ho
died, tbo people felt aa if the corner
stono of the Capitol had beon removed;
as if tho olephant had died that bore
thounivorso on bis back.
Emerson's portraituro of Webster at
Bunker Hill is made up of a few strokes.
But it reveals the wholo secret. Groat
as wore tbo things that Wobstor said,
profound ub was his reasoning, lofty as
are the Mights of biB imagination, stir
ring as are bis appoals to tho profound
ost passions of bis countrymen, tbere is
a constant fooling that Jove is behind
these thunderbolts. That is tbo con
trast between him and so many other
orators. Even in Choate and Phillips
you aio admiring the phrase and the
elocution, and not the men. In Web
ster you are thinking of tbo man, and
not the phrasjs. The best things that
he said do not seem to his listener to be
superior, f nd rarely seem to hiB listener
to be equal, to the man who said them.
Thoro is plenty of reserve power be
hind . . Half hie strength he pub not forth,
but checked
His thunder in mid-volley.
From "Daniel Wobfitor," by Senator
Qeorgo F. Hoar, in tho July Scribner's.
After Leandor mado hiB long swim for
her did Hero smile on his suit?
From tbo pictures I see ho did not
havo any.
So you are going to sond your wife
away to the country for a rest?
Yes I need it.
