Her station may require;
But i -ash and iron she don't know how,
She cannot cook or milk a cow,
She's never made a fire.
She cannot make a dress or shirt,
And if she could she would not flirt,
Nor yet my sad heart haunt;
But she can sing and sigh and say
"I love you, darling,"'every day,

In my reverie I hear it
As I heard it oft of yore,
When a boy I hastened onward,
Ere the closing of the door;
Tho' its tones are now the sweeter,
Tempered softer is the knell-
In my memory-and the ulan1uing
I can hear its rattling ding,
I can hear its booming dong-
And again I hear it sing-
"Come Alongl Come Along!"
And I note the clattering rattle
Of the clapper as it swings,
And I sink into the musing
That the mem'rv of it brings-
Faces gone, and hands that touched me
Hearts that slumber in the dell,J
'Gain are near me, at the clanging
I can hear its rattling ding,
I can hear its booming dong-
And again I hear it sing-
"Come Along! .Come Along!"
'Tis the dearest privilege granted
Thai we're given eyes to see
Back the years that Time has offered
Unto you and unto me-
But the fondest recollection
That is drawn from boyhood's well
Is the memory of the clanging
I can hear its rattling ding.
I can hear its booming dong-
And again I hear it sing-
"Come Along! Come Along!"

Thiso v.)Umg woman was born anmi
raised in the place, and all her life
breathed the exhilerating ozone from
the sea. This environment also bred
a fondness (or grapes, and therein
lies the story.
She wanted grapes their other day,
so she went several "versts" from the
habitation in quest of the fruit which,
in fable lore, was libeled by the fox,
the latter making some preference to
the acidnlation. At any rate, gi apes
wete what .she was altei, but in oider
to reach them she needed some sort
No step-ladder was handy, so she
took a barrel. With her little feet
giving the head of the barrel concu- -
sion of time brain, sl e plucked the
truit of the vine, and was happy,
very happy in her pristine miaidmnly
way. No picture could be more en-
ticing than a lively maidein standing
on a barrel-a barrel that had served
its original usefulness-plucking the
*i.,i ,. ii of the vine.
She was perfectly happy until
something happened. The head of
the barrel, pulsating with the etnbar-
rassument iad joy at bearing sunch
lovely weight, gave way, and our he-
roine dropped within the confines of
the staves. There would have bee-i
no .'cc.--itilt of this story having
been wrliten if ur her'iiie had been
attenuated, scrawney, etc. But shl
was not. She is a plump, pleasing
young woman, and if she had been
measured for a barrel she would have
required a size larger.
This new wooden hoopski, t was a
close fit. While it had not a Pari--
ian finish or a Worth or Redlern
touch, still it had a clinging effect and
there was no escape.
Nothing was left in the line of
feminine argument bat to scream.
This was what the lady with the lig-
num overskirt did. The barrel was
full of girl and the girl was full of
grapes. A plethora ot grape juice
has, in many ages, caused trouble,
but this was a case of the plain grave
of husbandry, or wifery. At any
rate, the screams of the girl did noth-
ing but put dents in the atmosphere.
In the meantime her vocal strug-

The farther they progress the small-

On a calm day any sailing craft

approximately no depth.
The "false sea," as it is called, is lit-
tle more than a rolling swell, but it
gives a warning of from- 20 minutes to'
two hours' duration, enabling a ship
to either run into port. get out to sea
or securely anchor; while at the sea-
side resorts the boatmen run close Idn
shore to the surprise of the "trippers."
When it is remembered that a wave
20 feet high, which is often attained by
the "ground sea," strikes with a force
of one ton to the square inch, the ne-
cessity for caution will be recognized.

These waves usnally appear wheni
there is a comparative calm near the
shore, their great point of difference'
from the "ground sea," in appearance
being that their unbroken lines are
nearer and are all equidistant, not
travelhig in threes.
Generally the "wind billow" does no f
break -into foam', but occasionally this
happens when they are coming in
against the tide. Then It Is hard to de-
tect them from' ordlnary waves, the
product of a local windstorm. These

The Only Prisoner Who Ever Man-
aged to vet Out of the Great Eng-
lslh Prfsoni Tells HiIow le Accom-
plished (the DiLltalt Feat.
Wilnnian Tnrtlett, a well known Eng-
lish burglar, is the only inan who ever
effected his escape from Portland pris-
on. an escape which is the original of
that described in HIawley Smart's
novel. "'Broken Boundtl." Bartlett told
the story of his escape to a reporter as
"The correct details of my escape

tell you whvlit actually happened. In

was t;.ken to Portland. It wx-as awful.
I ilii;i iiup liy mind to escape-a feat
nev-u-r ,bel'(ore accomplished. One day 1
omahi.t('e to pick up a sinall piece of
hoop iron. That seemed like a godsend.
Every ti:ne I hal the chance I took
that iron hooping with me. and worked
like a nigger to make it Into a saw. I
did it in fear and trembling, for the
slightest sound. would have betrayed
me. A stroke of luck awaited me. 1
found a convict who had got a little bit
of a lile. He ihad no ambition and said
the tile was no good to him. I gave
him my dinner for it. and with the file
I was able to complete the saw.. Then
I nmanna.:el, by working stealthily ev-
ery eveniing after 1I had been locked up
for the nigl. to sawthrough the wood
flooring of my cell. Every night I had
to replace the boards. so that the ward-
ers should not see what I had done.
Then ani awful disappointment await-
ad me. The space be-ucath my cell was
lined with sheet iron: I.nt. r.,hilinz
'lIn I ali1 iiiin :, n I:r l-haft. and after
three nmonlths' hard work saw my way
clear to liberty.
"At last the opportunity came. It
was a dark night. and all was still.
With my sheets I ha 1 made a rope.
and, s hinck would have it. I had pick-
ed up a piece of wood, called a 'dog,'
with iron hooks at each end. I put my
stool underneath the quilt, to look as
much like miy body as possible in case
the *warders should look in, and then
went down the passage it had taken
me three months' hard labor to make.
After lifting an iron grating I found
myself In the open air and managed to
throw tihe hooks on my linen ladder
over a wall. By this means I got on to
the roof of the officers' quarters. There
was no one about, and the only sound
I could hear was that made by my
beating heart. From the roof I had to
jump on to the boundary wall, about
10 or 12 feet dista:it. I dare say it was
a bold leap. but you don't stick at
trifles when you aire escaping from
Portland. I made the leap and was
successful in reaching the boundary
wall. Th6n I got to the ground by
means of my linen ladder.
"Unfortunately the hooks vere so se-
cure that I had to leave the ladder
where It was. and If it had not been
for that I might have been in London
in three or four days. As It was, I had
an awful experience. While making a
desperate tug dt the ladder I heard
footsteps approaching, and I rushed
into the garden of the grove public
house. I turned round and saw ra
guard looking dt the ladder. A few
minutes afterward shots were fired.
and a bell was rung. My escape had
been discovered. Guards were running
by In all directions; but, unperceived.
I got through the window-of the Ro-
inl-tu ( Lnul- oe._'l1 In r-onc',.a"led I '
',s'lf lhiiuiathi rihe crlimmunlon table,
which proved to be something very
much like d' box. I could hear the
sound of hurrying footsteps all night,
but no onet came into the chapel untif
the next morning, when service was-
"It was not a pleasant position to be"
In. I can assure you. A squeeze or a
cough would have betrayed me, but
fortunately all went well. But I got
very hungry. So at the end of about
33 hours I stole out and broke into the
Clifton hotel. I there found some bread
and meat. cheese and tobacco. What
was of more consequence, I' was able
to steal a hat and some clotheS. With
the clothing and the food-the sweetest
food I eve austr.d--I returned to my
hiding hlflaLe- in the chapel. Out of a
black coat I made a pair of trousers,
and put on another of the stolen coats,
*lhich happened to be made of velvet.
The food I divided into six portions,
and for six days I was concealed be-
neath that communion table. There
were frequent services, and, what was
still worse, the priest used' to come
In at Bight f6r private devotions.
"At last I had more than enough of
It and broke into the priest's house

Many birds form their sounds with-
out opening their bills. The pigeon is
a well known instance of this. Its
cooing can be distinctly heard, al-
though it does not open its bill. The
call Is formed internally in the throat
and chest and is only rendered audible
Iyv resonance. Similar ways may be
o:. ,'Mcved in !4any birds and other ani-
mals. The clear, loud call of the
cuckoo. according to one naturalist, is
the resonance of a note formed in the
bird. The whirring of the snipe, which
hetrays the approach of the bird to the
hunter. is an act of ventriloquism.
Even the nightingale has certain notes
which are produced internally and
which are audible while the bill is

Thera:e ill: many people Vwho do not
care for lib"r( ries who pride themselves
on havng "only the books they read"
about ,heiM. but the answer nwade by
a li- *' ,- '-'..,.I scholar to one of those
persons very well illustrates how valu-
able Is this idea as to what a library
should be. 'hie scholar was connected
with au institution of learning which
had bcen greatly helped by a liberal
man of the neighborhood, but the liber-
al vian was not much of a sympathizer
with the idea of increasing the library.
Wien appealed to in the matter, he re-
"More books? Dear me, it seems to
me you've ot more than you can read
now. Have you read all you have al
"No." returned the scholar. "and I
never expe( t to read them all."
"Then vi ly do you want more?"
"Let me tsk you," said the scholar,
"did you ever read the dictionary
"Cert:;ii.; not." was the reply.
"Well. 0 i said the scholar, "a libra-
ry is may ,li 'i.ii.'y."

A olnplleated Flag.
The Spa ish royal standard is most
complicated. The red and yellow of
the Spani. flag Is said to be derived
from this ceurrence: In 1378 Charles
the Bold l ;,f,. his fingers in the blood
of (;,.lr- ', count of Barcelona, and
Irew th': ( down the count's golden
shield in t ken of his appreciation of
the hiter' bravery. The shield, so
marked. If came the arms of Barce-
lona. wail ) became part of Aragon,
and its aR' 1s were taken by that king.
Now to lie royal standard: In the
first (,1:1r't r or upper left hand part'of
the tlag iar the arms of Leon and Cas-
tile, th ilin I and the castle; the second
quarter is taken up, one-half by the
arnis of A agon. one-half by the arms
of Sicily. 'he upper third of the quar-
ter directlyl under the first) shows the
Austri4n ( lors. the lower two-thirds
is divided between the flag of Bur-
gundy and the black lion of Flanders;
the upper rthii of the fourth quarter
shows the checkers, another Burgun-
dian device while the lower two-thirds
is shared 1 y the red eagle of Antwerp
and the go den lion of Brabant. and on
the top of 11 this are two shields, one
showing t PIortuguese arms. the oth-
er the Fre ch fleur-de-lis. Considerable

SVof ery Old After All.
i tt Tgie cLurchiyard at
fickenhill,' in Warwickshire, is a
tombstone upon which is Inscribed the
age of a dear old maiden lady who de-
parted this] life In the year 1701. Her
age, as testified by the engraver's art,
was 708. Born before the Conquest
and dying underr Queen Anne. Again
ai Chave 'riory, Worcestershire, the
age of a "rfde forefather" is similarly
Inscribed '3W0. Not to harrow the read-
er, we may say that these portentous
figures are strictly the product of the
engraver's art. The monumental ma-
son of those days was nothing if not
Ignorant, and his idea of writing 78 or
39 was to -write 70 or 30 first and 8 or
9 afterward, meaning 70 plus 8 or 30
plus 9, etc as, the case might be.

orr rly i.' to .l. nth.lr an who was visit-
ing the invitation recently and said:
"That man has for five years carried
around a bullet in his brain. Five
years ago he became despondent be-
cause of poverty, put a 32 caliber pis-
tol behind his left ear, pulled the trig-
ger and fell apparently dead. The
ball made a small, round hole and re-
mained lodged somewhere In his head.
A few hours after he was brought here
he regained consciousness, and, great-
ly to our surprise, he made a rapid re-
covery. The wound was never probed,
and no effort has been made to locate
the bullet. After he was able to walk
about we noticed that he was a trifle
irrational-not inad you know-but
weakininded. A considerable portion
of his brain must without doubt be en-
tirely destroyed. The human animal
is certainly the hardest thing on earth
to kill."-New Yor'k News.

HIs Plea For Water.
"If there is anything I dislike," re-
marked Colonel Stilwell. wiping his
mustache with impressive deliberation.
"it is a bigoted person. Some of the
people at my home In Kentucky came
very near taking permanent offense at
me, but I held out and finally con-
"What was the discussion about?"
"It was the old controversy. Some-
body mentioned water, and Judge Mor-
gan stated his opinion that it was
something that ought to be abolished.
The mnaitor argued for its use-in LnoideL-_
ation, but the judge wouldn't have it.
I was sorry to disagree with the judge,
but I stated my arguments and clinch-
ed them so that he had to give in. I
called his attention to the grea'tachieve-
ments which all the world is now en-
gaged in applauding. I recalled to his
mind the glories of our naval heroes.
the men who are so proud of their
country, the men of whom their coun-
try is so proud. Then I pointed my
finger at the judge and asked him how
those naval heroes could have done
these glorious deeds if there hadn't
been plenty of water for them to sail
their ships on."-Washington Star.
Trains. Worry, Direase and Death.
Late trains are it source of annoyance
to everybody. The, British Medical
Journal dwells upon the very serious
result produced by them upon the
health of travelers. The rush to the
station to catch the train which may
perchance be punctual; the weary wait
on drafty platforms or in stuffy wait-
ing rooms: the dilatory journey-all
these, we are told, add seriously to the
labor of the day even in the best of
times, but when the weather is cold
and daml) they are still more injurious
anmd in that they are largely responsible
for those "colds," as they are called,
those conditions of depressed vitality
which are the starting points of most
of tl e acute diseases from which men
suffer and from which the elderly and
the feeble die.
Surface manners are like cut flowers
stuck in a shallow glass with just
enoug-h water to keep them fresh an
hour or so; but the courtesy that has

Just What Was Wanted.
It is related of a Hibernian parade
in Chicopee that one of the officers
of the day telephoned an order to a
Flolyoke stable for 15 white horses for
the use of marshals, aids. etc. The
liveryinen tilled the order, but it some-
what taxed their resources to find so
tiallay white horses. Judge of their"

When you see an animal trainer per-
formingu with ferocious beasts you
may be quite right if you imagine the
mnan as a fearless master of them,.
but if you think for an instant that
there is no danger, you are wholly
wrong. A trainer never confronts the
beasts and compels them to do his
bidding but he literally takes his life
in his lianAs.
Hie is so used to- the danger that be
does not think of it each time. and he
holds his mastery of thetu by a sort of
power that becomes habit-second na.

Is necessary to keep the eye fixed
pretty constantly upon it, or it miay re-

one secret, if such it can be called, of
handling wild beasts, and that is to
be brave and make them fear you. If
they have the slightest cause to think
you timid they will take advantage of
it instantly, and they are shrew'l and
knowing in their way and constantly

A Cae of Confu d'TelepaH*i.
A very remarkable occurrence ba,
been brought to my notice. Early last!
week a well known lady, who shall bed
called Jones, dreamed a ridiculous(
dream, as inconsequential as most
Mrs. Jones drc-Ai:md that a dog of
hers had died and that ahe rzcelved aa
, official communication ordering her
either to cremate the rtnmanis or to her
self skin the animal and throw the
body into the river. Mrs. Jones chose,
thl latter alternative. but having halt
skinned the body and becoming tired
threw it as it was into the water. Tl'.
dog disappeared for an linA.ni and
then reappeared on the sut ic aiivfe
and swimming across to the .;...,.-
bank trotted off, evidently In gtki a;,t
fearing. There ends the dream.
The next morning the postmtao
brought several letters. The first onl
was addressed to Lewis Jones, ixjq
-there being no such person-and ran.
as follows: "Sir. your dog eros wd tih ,

being very severely injured it wa:s
found necessary to kill it. Should yovi
