W. Leroy Foggr, in Boston Transcript.
Sit here with me,
My little Oirl,
And while the red
And gold flames curl
With )retty sparks
Far up the flue,
I'll stroke your locks
And talk to you.

The mother's eyes
Were just like yours-
Blue as the waves
On Naples' shores;
Her hair was brown,
Like yours, too, dear,
And rippled o'er
As pink an ear.
She used to sit
Beside me here
When nights were harsh
And woods were sere-
Ah! she was fair,
Dear, very fair,
With firelight
Upon her hair

The black midnight
Would find us still
Before the blaze,
And here, until
The crumbling sticks
Had spread in two,
We'd sit my child,
And talk of you.
Now, litetl girl,
'Tis you and I-
Your mother went
When fall passe-: by;
And here we sit
And list the purr
Of burning logs,
And talk of her.
Upon tio n ill
Your mother sweet
Rests quietly-
Her head and feet
Deep under snow
From stormy skies;
But you, my pet,
Have her blue eyes!
Near the Dawn.
When life's troubles gathe.: darkly
Round the way we follow here,'
When no hope the sad heart lightens,
No voice speaks a word of cheer;
Then the thought the shadow scatters,
Giving us a cheering ray-
When the night appears the darkest
Morning is rot far away.
When adversity surrounds us,
And our sunshine friends pass by,
And the dreams so fondly cherished
With our shattered trrasures lie;
Then amid such gloomy seasons
This sweet thought can yet be drawn;
When the darkest hour is present,
It is always near the dawn.

When the spirit fluttering lingers
On the confines of this life,
Parting from all joyful memories,
And from every scene of strife,
Though the scene is sad and gloomy,
And the body shrinks in fear,
These dark hours will soon be vanished
and the glorious morn be here.
Pain can not affect us always,
Brighter days will soon be here;
Sorrow may oppress us 'often,
Yet a happier time is near;
All along our earthly journey
This reflection lights the way-
Nature's darkest hour 's always
Just before the break of day.


A Westerner Who is Coming
East to Be a Boy Again.
Chicago Timss-Herald.
*'No, sir," said the man with fur
,on his overcoat. "No land of cinna.
mor. budo and apple blossoms for me
this winter. I am going where I'll
enjoy myself."
"But I thought you always went
south to get rid of the cold weather,"
said the man with him.
"So I did, but this winter I'm go-
ing were there'll be some fun! Ever
go to a dance when the snow was six
feet deep on the level? No. Well,
yon just want to try it once. Eyer
been to a spelling school? It's more
fnn than a barrel of monkeys. I'm'
going way down east-whew! won't
it he cold? I've bought stacks of
woollen clothes, and there'll be conm-

bob and lot soap stones to keep your
fetet watin, and your hand in the
muff of tile prettiest gill-"
"But look here, man! Yott-e no

pineunmoiia-that's what. Besides,
jour wiie will be along."
-0-h. Y-e-s. She's the girl I
meant. Chicken? Well, I have
aged a bit since the old days, I sup-
pose. But I tell you it will be fun
Riding to mill behind brother J,-sli
and sticking to the old mare's sides,

"You expect to see the ola mare?"
"Oh, not the same one, I suppose,
but one like her. Hang it all man,
you're too literally But there's noth-
ing the inatter witso having a good
time in tha old fal.hounse, is there?
I can toast my shints at the kitchen
fire, can't I, and bring in tha baeklig
as 1 did when I was a boy."
"Kitchen fire! Back-log! Whv,
man you are living in the pa@. 11
you expect those things don't go
home. Th., railroad runs past the
farm house, and they have a furnace
and 'help' in the kitchen, and tihe
generation living there now wouldn't
know a back-log if they met me.
knd the snow isn't what J-;useil to
be. It falls one day and niclta the
next. Take my advice and go down

"But my mother. She is old and
wants to see her boy again."
"Leave her boy to her as she re-
members him. You are grizzly gray
now and she pictures you with biownl

"Pshaw!" and the man in the fur-
trinmmed overcoat looked out of tioa
car indow and was silent.

on vwhlo hitis aff:etions had been
centered for two years, but lie could
never icerew up courage to the pri.-

quire of paper and half a night wr rc

disconsolate lover.
The next morning lie took a sting
cup of coffee and further braced hitm-
-elf by throwing out his chest, talk-
ing loud to the rest of his family and
told them that he had about decided
to go into business for himself. Thus
stimulated, he went to the telephone,
called her up, and made one of the
most direct proposals in all the va-
ried annals of love. But betle she
could reply he was seized with a
horrible fit of bashfulness and drop-

The bashful youth filled the hIuiie

Avoiding Wartime Raids.
J. H. Gore writes an article in St
Nicholas on "Hiding Places In War-
times." In describing a tiose n1i
debatable ground that had many se-
cret nooks, the author says:
The house had a cellar with a d.,or
opening directly out upon t. e "big
road," and never did a troop, large
or small pass I'y without countless
soldiers seeking something eatable in
the convenient cellar. It was never
empty, but nothing was ever found.
A partition had been run across abuut
th'i'ee feet from the back wall, so near
that even a close inspection would not
suggest a space back of it, and being

She stood on the back veranda mak-
ing up the butter. The sleeves of her
blue print gown were rolled up past
her elbows, and her hands were yet
swollen and red from the scalding and
chilling process.
Suddenly there came a sharp knock-
ing at the hall door, and a tall, stern
featured woman thrust her head through
the bathroom window, which looked
out ou the back veranda.
"There's some one at the door, Bes-
sie," she Eaid, and her whisper could
have reached to the house front.
The girl hurried along the narrow
passage, unrolling her right sleeve as
she went, which was the one to be pre-
seuted when the dr.or should be opeuedl.
'_'Good morning," she said as serene-
hopes had l eu rie' r salaij'w oU tU
frosted pane and thattered I.y tie open-
ing of the door.
"Good morning," said the man at
the doorstep, and his eyes smileid
crookedwise at the knocker, which was
the exact spot where hr face was, ao-
cording to his focus. "Good morning.
I-I though, maybe you'd like some
peas. They're quite young and fresh,
and I've just pu.h'!d them."
"We've just got some," said the girl.
"John always comes (nu a Saturday."
"I thought maybe you'd have them,"
said the young man to the knocker,
"but p'raps you'd rather have flowers."
The door was jerked back, and anoth-
er face appeared above the girl's shoul-
der. The young man moved his eyes to
a hole that had been made for a latch-
"Good morning, Mrs. Stuart," he
said eagerly. "I-I just looked round
to see if Miss Bessie wouldn't like some
fresh young peas. I had a goo4 crop of
'em this time." ,
"Why, of course Bessie will," said
Mrs. Stuart, "nud she's very much
obliged to you for 'em. Aren't you Bes-
"Yes, mother," she said, but the
words seemed to come from behind shut
"What aifyou going to do with your-
self on Sunday, Ben?" asked Mrs. Stu-
"I reckon I'm juit going to stay at
bomp by myself," said the young man,
but an anxious shading stole into his
smil e.
"You might as well drop in and take
a cup of tea with us. Besia and I will
be alone," said Mrs. Stuart, her natural
griuuess climbing over her blandness.
"Thanks," he said, with alacrity; "I
don't mind if I do."
Wihep the hall door was closed, the
two w ~ien took their way to the back
"I don't want his peas," Bessie said.
"I hate them."'
"No, you don't," said her stepmoth-
er iu her clear cut voice. "You want
'ea, aud you're going to take 'em, and
you're going to behave civil to him
bchen he comes on Sunday."
"I'm not," said the girl, but weak-
nubs streaked her voice.
"Dou't be a niuny," said her moth-
er. "You'll have him when you're ask-
ed. And young Macallster's gone to

Ilean That Eat Their Own Eggs.
As a rule, when hens have suitable
food they don't eat theix own eggs.
To preserve eggs from being eaten un-
der' exceptional conditions there are a
number of devices. There is, for in-
stance, a nest with a bottom of woven
wire with a mesh big enough to let an
egg through,. The egg goes through the
thin layer of hay with which the nest
Is lined and through the wide meshed
bottom to fall safely in a bed of hay un-
Another device is automatic and set
in operation by the chicken itself when

enough to, roll the egg off into a place of
safety made for its reception.
Chickens are commonly carried on
deep water strips on long voyages to strp-
ply eggs for the captain's table and oc-
casionally a fowl. Chickens at sea are
more likely to eat their own eggs than
they are ashore. To prevent this among
the chickens carried on his vessel the
captain of an American ship rigged a
contrivance that answered the purpose
and was adapted to the situation. He
attached to the underside of the nest a
shoote by which the egg when laid was
carried safely down to a box below. -

"Tho stranoe-t thing in life is the

"He is ignorant aud he has been
poor. In his early life he was a sailor
before the mast, and from what I can
learn he suffered all the hardships of
that calling without seeing any of its
pleasant and adventurous side. He
never married and never bad any fam-
ily or home. I have questioned him
closely, and I have been unable to dis-
cover one scrap of genial reminiscence
in the sordid, squalid, miserable record
of his career., b has absolutely nothing
that he can ponder over with the slight-
est degree of pleasure, and his present
situation is simply frightful.
"He sleeps in a shed back of a negro
hovel and depends on alms for his food
and clothes; yet, in spite of it all, he is
eager to keep on living and rebels at
once at the bare thought of death. He
isn't afraid, but he wants to continue
to live. It's a mystery of mysteries,
and the case is not exceptional either.
There are plenty of others exactly like
it. "-New Orleans Times-Demoora4.

him that. his errand was a useless one.
The king anxiously awaited his re-
turn. His mind was on her question
concerning the jew's harp, and the re-
membrance of it was most annoying.
The third princess received the min-
ister very ogrdially. She said she had
changed her mind about marrying a
man who could play the jew's harp.
"Dreams are but vain and empty
things, especially those of youth."
She realized that her wish could not
be fulfilled, and as the ling pleased
her she had decided to marry him.
The minister rode home as fast as his
horse could go, and the king embraced
him, and conferred so many decorations
on him that he had to wear some of
them on his hd.
The town trimmed with bunting,
garlands were thrown across the streets
from housa to house, and the marriage
was so splendidly celebrated that the
people could talk of nothing else for e
All went well with the king and
queen for a year. The king had quite
forgotten his giugernuts and the queen

However, the king got out of bed one

You are perhaps aware that pneumonia
always result- from a cold o- from nu at-

of Ua grippe a few years ago when so
many cases rcsnited in pneumonia, it
was observed that. the attack was never

Stopped the Duel.
This happened in Brazil: Felix 1o-
oayuva and one Zuocharini of Sao Phalo
are both journalists, the latter an Ital-
ian. Zuooharini challenged Bocayuva
to a duel, "COrtainly," replied the
Brazilian in effect, "ff you are good
enough to fight with a gentleman. Get
a certificate of character from your con-
sul and I'll meet you." So ucoharini
applied to the Italian consul in Rio for
a certificate of charmoter. Learning the
purpose, the consul refused, and one
duel was off.

What Shall We Do?
A serious and dangerous disease pre-
vails in I his country, dangerous because
so iecepti e. It ones on so slowly yet
surely th.,t it is often tirmlv seated be-
fore we are aware of it. '
The name of this disease which may
be divided into three distinct stages is,
First, Kidney trouble, indicated by pain
in the back, rheumatism, lumbago,-fre-
quent desire to urinate, often with a
burning sensation, the flow of urine be-
ing copious or scant with strong odor.
If allowed to advance, this reaches
the second stage, or bladder trouble,
with heavy pain in tne abdomen low
do n between the navel and the water
passage, increasing desire to urinate,
with scalding sensation in passing,small
quantities being passed with difficulty,
sometimes necessary to draw it with in-
struments. If uric acid or gravel has
formed, it will prove dangerous if neg-
The Third stage is Bright's disease.
There is comfort in knowing that Dr.
Kilmer, the great kidev and bladder
specialist, has discovered a remedy
famous for its marvelous cures of the
modt distressing cases and known as Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root.
It is sold by all druggists.
As a proof of the wonderful virtues of
thiL great discovery, Swamp-Root, a
sample bottle and book of valuable in-
formation will be sentabsolutely free by

No Prisons Needed.
In Iceland there are no prisons, and
the inhabitants are so honest in their
habits that such material defenses to
property as looks, bolts and bars are
not required. Yet its history for the
past thousand years records no more
than two thefts.
Of these two cases, one was that of a
native who was detected after stealing
several sheep, but as he had done so to
supply his family, who were suffering
for want of food, when he had broken
his arm, provisions were furnished to
them and work was found for him when
he was able to do it, and meanwhile he
was placed under medical care, but the
stigma attached to his crime was con-
sidered sufficient punishment.
The other theft was made by a Ger-
man, who stole 1? sheep. But as he was
in comfortable circumstances and the
robbery was malicious the sentence
passed upon him was that he should at
once sell all his property.
Millions Given A way.
It is certainly gratifying to the pub-
lic to know of one concern in the land
who are not afraid to be generous to
the needy and suffering. The proprie-
tors of Dr. King's New Discovery for
consumption, coughs and colds. have
given away over ten million trial bot-
tils of this great medicine, and have
the satisfaction of knowing it has abso-
lutely cured thousands of helple-s
cases. Asthma, bronchitis. hodrsencs.
and all diseases of the throw at, chest
and lungs ire surely cured bv it. Call

at the incredible numbers of these crea-

r- been alive with a seething multitude of
P Aherrks, while from every quarter came
drifting silently au incalculable host of
sea birds, converting the blue surface
of the sea into the semblance of a plain

The harpooners and officers from their
lofty position on the cutting stage slew
scores upon scores by simply dropping

The Four Greatest Poets.
Who are the four greatest poets of the
world? The question was one, we gather
from Sir Edward Hamilton's mono-
graph, which used to exercise Mr. Glad-
stone. About the first three places in-
deed be believed that there could be no
reasonable question. They must be as-
signed to Bomer, Dante and Shakes-
peare. But about the fourthplace Mr.
Gladstone found geat difficulty. He
oonridered that there were four com-
petitors-AXschylus, v'lgil, Milton and
Goethe. We wonder eow many of our
readers would at a first guess select Mr.
Gladstone's final choice? It was Goethe.
Who, in recent days, have been the
greatest masters of English? This wal
another question which Mr. Gladstone
was foud of considering. He decided in
favor of two as greater than all others-
Cardinal Newman and Mr. Ruskin. It
is interesting to recall the fact that Mr.
Morley, in a lecture, answered the same
question. According to him, the great
masters of English in our generation
have been tbrea--Carlyle, Alaoaulay

The purpose of this.Coumpany is to Improve the Coulitry adjacent tuS t.

To accomplish this the Company proposes to Sell Lands in tractsol' Two-

Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent, Impiovemnenri'asa ill enhance the
ral-s ofeach tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees,' Plants and Vines.
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every su.'h tract s.hll be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.




The first question which will naturally be asked will be: "ls this Com-
pany relialleQ"/ And the answer to .it. is: Any person employing the Comoany
to makeiinprovuemnits may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any responsible business mau or firm doing businesses on the Bay or iln

From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of' a fruit
