For The Courier.
Curiosity is a trait which
is thought to belong
To the feminine gender alone ,
But that this is not so ,
was fully proved clear ,
When election returns
were made known
When Bryan so trustingly
smiled on the crowd
Who thronged him wherever he'd be,
Little thought he,
Curiosity simple and pure
Brought most, just the great man to see.
This trait more developed
may cause them to take
His paper, at least, for a year
'Twould give it a start
which is all that it needs
I doubt not will be made to appear .
Burpee's Farm Annual for 1901.
"Quarter-Century" edition. Published
by W.Altee Burpe it Co., Philadelphia.
This is more than an ordinary Beed
catalogue. It is a comprehensive book
of 220 piges, besides four colored plates,
showing leiding varieties in vegetable
and flower seeds; bound in a beautiful
lithograph cover printed in ten colors
and gold. The book is noteworthy from
the fact that every description, even of
the standard varieties, as well as direc
tions for culture, have been entirely re
written from the most recent notes
taken at Fordhook Farm. The first six
teen pages (printed on enamel paper
with photoengravure illustrations) are
devoted chiefly to a record of progress
during the last quarter of the nine
teenth century. Three pages are de
voted to the results of contests in dif
ferent states for the Burpee Premium,
which is ottered annually at every state
and county fair.
While too costly a book to send free,
it is mailed for ten cents, together with
a lifteen cent packet of either Luther
Burbank'e Floral Novelty, or the new
dwarf Burpee "Quarter-Century" toma
to. In this way the catalogue really
cost 3 nothing, but Messrs. Burpee & Co.
publish another catalogue of ninety
pages, entitled "Seed-Sense,'" which is
mailed entirely free.

"The Village Parson," will be seen at
the Oliver theatre for one night, Mon
day, February 11th. The play ie-of in
tense human interest, true human pa
thos with the comedy characters clever
ly interwoven, throughout the five acts.
The incidents are effecting, the simple
yet absorbing theme of a woman's love,
rendered supremest in adversity.touches
a tender chord in the human heart.
That there is no villian in ''Old Jed
Prouty" heightens the interest in Rich
ard Golden'e idyl, which will be the at
traction at the Oliver theatre, Tuesday
night, when "Old Jed Prouty" and the
rest "on em'' will hold the boards. No
one can breathe with Old Jed and be a
villain. Jed's face reflects a spirit that
is self sacrficing, pure, and from his
heart an ever-bubbling spring of ten
derness Hows. In the presence of this
kindly old man, we forget our vexations,
and are quieted and charmed by the
bright influence of bis quiet content-meint
The public having clearly demonstrat
ed ita disapproval for tragedy and hav
ing shown a tendency to patronize the
more modern productions, Mr. Robert
Downing to withdraw on his entire rep
ertaire, and will be seen in an entirely
new production, "The Seventh Com
mandment." While Mr. Downing has
never attempted anything in this line of
work before, his versatility as an actor
is sufficient to carry him through the
role admirably, suited to his physique
and resonant vocal powers. There is
not a vulgar situation or line through
out the piece, and the comedy element
is well supplied by a French maid and
an Irish valet. The engagement is for
one night, Wednesday, February lUtb.
