A BIT OF YALE-BLUE.
Jaggles How did the doctor rind out
that he'd taken poison?
Waggles Why, he pumped him.
The cause of it all was a piece of Yale
blue ribbon. The wind, which was blow
ing at a furious gale, also had some
thing to do with the case. Furthermore,
the hot air that came in blasts from a
grating in Twenty-third street made a
balloon of her Bkirts, to the delight of a
number of small boys, and, as a climax
to her troubles, she stumbled and nearly
fell to her knees in front of Jack San
ford, who was sauntering along in search
of a present for his paternal grand
mother. "I beg your pardon," said the young
"Granted!" replied Jack, promptly.
'Are you hurt?'1
"Not a bit," she gasped. "I don't see
how" Then ehe looked down and saw
that one of her silk shoelaces had come
untied. "Ob, dear!" she said, impa
tiently. "Let me fix it for you," Baid Jack, im
pulsively. She blushed, and replied, hurriedly:
"Oh no, thank you! It's broken!"
Jack instinctively felt in his pockets
for something with which to repair the
"If I only had oh! I know!" In an
instant ha had whipped off a piece of
blue ribbon he was wearing in celebra
tion of a contest between hiB college and
Princeton that day and handed it to
the charmer in distress.
"Perhaps that will do," he said. "I'm
afraid it's rather gaudy, but it will last
till you reach home."
"That's lovely!" replied the lady.
"Thanks so much!" Then with a be
witching smile, "I hope your college will
win today." And she tripped away,
leaving Jack with his hat in his hand
and his mouth open.
Two years passed, and it was the an
niversary of the college competition.
Jack had not forgotten his romantic ad
venture. He had fallen in love a hun
dred times since, but still kept a corner
of his heart for the girl with the blue
ribbon. He had, unfortunately, forgot
ten what her features were like, but he
labored under an extremely improbable
hope that some day he should meet her
This nope was in his mind when he
wended his way to the house of his
latest conquest. It so happened Jack
confessed he didn't know how that be
fore the day was over he found himself
engaged to the daughter of his hostess.
It might have been the excitement he
experienced over the fact that his col
lege proved victorious, or it might have
been the knowledge that the young lady
was possessed of a sum that would af
ford him a substantial competence for
the rest of bis natural life, which
brought him to a declaration of his af
fection; but certain it was that at the
hour of ten o'clock his life contract was
Confidence begat confidence, and in
the exhilieratton of the occasion be re
lated to his inamorata his experience
with the blue ribbon lady.
"I thought at the time," he sighed, "I
should never marry anyone but her!"
A roguish twinkle came into her eyes,
and she whispered. "Then it was you!"
"What do you mean?" he asked.
"Why, you're my hero! Wait a min
"I suppose so. It looks like it."
"Tfem the rale-blue tie "
They were married, but whether they
lived happily ever afterward history de
poneth not. However, there was one
incident during the honeymoon which
is worth recording.
"Jack, dear," said the blushing bride,
"you remember that affair about the
Jack said he remembered.
"Well, what I told you wasn't true."
Jack murmured sleepily, "I knew it."
P. S. And they were both satisfied.
Ernest George,' in the May Smart Set.
O earth ! thou hast not
any wind which blows
That k not music .
Every weed of thine ,
Pressed rightly, flows
in aromatic wine ;
And every humble hedgerow
flower that grows ,
And every link brown bird
that doth sing,
Hath something greater
than itself, and bears
A loving word to
every living tt.ing
Albeit a hold
the message unawares
All shapes and sounds have
something which is not
Of them. A spirit broods
amid the grass:
Vague outlines of the
Lie in the melting shadows
as they pass;
The touch of an
Eternal Presence thrills
The breezes of the sunset
and the hills,
Sometimes we know not how ,
nor why, nor whence ,
The twitter of the swallows
'neath the eaves,
The shimmer of the light
amid the leaves ,
Will strike up through
the thick roots of our sense ,
And show us things
which seers and sages saw
In the gray earth's green dawn
something doth stir,
Like organ hymns within us ,
and doth awe .

Cora Do you believe is palmistr ?
Merritt No, my dear. The only
time I was glad to find a life line in my
hand was when I was shipwrecked.

"Do you think you would know the
shoe if you saw it again?"
Jack was a trifle doubtful, but said
be thought he would. She produced a
dainty but dusty old shoe and handed
it to him.
"Does this look anything like it?"
