A very curious history 1b that of Burne-Jones' favorite picture. "Love Among the Ruins." Tlie original picture was in water color and was sent to Paris by a firm of art publishers for reproduction and in that city forwarded to their photographic studios in the suburbs. Thè picture unhappily preceded the letter of instructions regarding it warning the photographer of the medium in which it was painted, so that ipamediately on its arrival it was brushed oyer with white of egg to bring out the teolors for photographing —an excellent procedure in the case of oil pictures, harmless and very efficacious. "  But, as to the Burne-Jones picture, Love was very soon among his own ruins, for every swish of the brush brought off the final touches and left a mere smeared ground. Sir Edward Burne-Jones was heartbroken at the Ions of a work on whiqli his reputation, he considered, would' In great measure ffest nnd on which lie had spent many months, of patient" toil and the very perfection of his execution In the realization of one of' thè moit poetic conceptions that had sprung from his fanciful imagination.  "Love Among the Ruins" was painted during the years 1870-3. In October, 1893, It was destroyed,' and l)y the following year the oil version was finished, but was scarcely a consolation to the artist for the loss of his first nnd more spontaneous work.  The above picture illustrates the system by which the, state board of health is attempting to spread the "gospel of good health" in Wooster and in Wayne county through the State Public Health Exhibit which will be open to the general public in the Wooster Armory oin Tuesday, Oct. 28, for a week.  This particular picture deals with the subject of child hygiene. The whole subject is summed up in the card shown in the lower or right-hand corner. It is one of a large number of standards which . are shown profusely in the exhibit in connection, with t<he electrical models photographs, etc.  "The child has three principal rights."  First, to be well-born. Thousands of children .'.hoi u every year iu Ohio are not well born. They are born unhealthy and are handicapped through life. Social diseases which infest the parent are responsible for most of this.  Secondly, to be. well nourished. This sums up the w.hole question of proper feeding and care—meglect of which kills thousands of Ohio babies before they reach their second birthday.  Thirdly, to be well protected. This refers to the protection of public health which- the state attempts to throw around every citizen— proper sanitation, protection of flood, pure water, protection from contagious diseases, etc.  So, you see, the one small card with the "tuberculosis cross"'in the upper corners, sums up the whole question ' of protecting the public health, and the right of every citizens to demand ~ that protection.  This is but one of the dozen» of similar cards shown in the exhibit. Every one tells a story, which, on reflection., may be amplified into a compajct health sermon. The exhibit Is worth an hour's close study on the part of every cltizep in this county, and the evening lectures oil  health topics should be attended whenever possible. The exhibit is free.  Lovely Party for Class.  Tim beautiful home of"Mr. and Mrs. T. VV. Orr, of Ft. .Wayne avenue, was the scene of a merry October party on Saturday afternoon in honor of her Bible school class of "Primaries Proper," numbering twenty little boys and girls of the Church of Christ. It is with much regret that the tie between these little oines and Mrs. Orr, with whom she has been so faithfully associated, as their teacher, for the period of seven years, must be severed in the near future, that she and her husband may take up their future home in Orrville.—Wooster Daily News.  On the Box  By THOMAS R. DEAN  Vears ago there were two men living In one of the great cltle3 on the eastern coast of the United State3 who, though they were father and son, were chums. They were rich and ultra fashionable, which meant then something far different from what It Would mean today. In those days the fashionable people of the land were refined and intelligent. Now to be ultra fashiona ble has a questionable sound. One may be ultra fashionable, yet devoid of ordinary breeding.  The two men referred to looked like gentlemen and acted like gentlemen. Shakespeare has described them in his words "to the maniler born." They  ____  Entertained at Dinner.  Mr. and Mrs. H. E.

By this I do not mean such animals as the tenor who played the part of Lohengrin and was told by Von, Bulow that he was the knight of the swine rather than of the swan, . but real bona fide animals They extend all the way from Monte-verde to Wagper.  About A. D. 1600 it was not unusual to have llong or elephants upon the operatic stage. One can never tell what these animals may Improvise in their parts. I kflow of a case where an elephant causgd a most hasty exit of the orchestra in London long ago, when the father of B;.p. Woolf, the Boston critic, was conducting.  The donkefr in Leoncavallo's "Pag-liacc!" has not <a speaking part, yet once that I know of..be lifted up his voice and made Canlo's great solo an unexpected duet- Balaam himself was not more astonished than was the tenor on that occasion.  In spite of the saying, "Thou shalt not yoke the ox and the ass together," Plerne caused these two to Bing a duet lh "The Children of Bethlehem." On this occaslpqidti^e ass was a tenor, but I do not befieve that Pierne meant any reflection upon the high voiced fraternity—Louis C. Bison in Musical Ob-server.  ter under the direction of the Women's Federated Cluibs. In Mans field where it closed Tuesday, it was shown under the auspices of the city board of health. Wayne is the fourth county to' secure this exhibit, wthiwli is norw greatly sought by the larger cities.  It. will he open in the Wooster Armory each afternoon and evening, and in the evening a special lecture oin some health topic will be delivered by, an expert sent to Wooster by the state board of health. There will be a different speaker each night, amd every lecture will be illustrated with either slides or especially prepared moving pictures.

Mlllersburg, Crestón.  à j.  ^V^CIUCI  street, and one looking at them would think them a .pair of noblemen belonging to some lordly English estate. In fe'i'iety they were known as "Domboy & Son."  The father, who was a widower, drifted on. thinking that their companionship would last as long as they lived. What a shock, then, was it to him when his son announced to his father his engagement'. The older'man could not believe his senses. But when he learned that his son was to marry a girl with no fortune, that the young couple could not retain the position in society that their ancestors, the Van G.'s, had held for 200 years, his desolation was complete. He could not conceive of himself failing to appear at the functions he had from his youth been accustomed to attend, and to go to them without the companion who had always gone with him would be worse than not going at all.  The first quarrel the two had ever bad followed. "You shall not marry," said the elder Van G., "unless you marry one of our set and one with sufficient fortune to enable you to keep up a position as a married man."  "I have asked a lady to be my wife," replied the son. "and I will not turn upon my Invitation."  "Very well, then, you must shift for yourself."  Harry Van G. married a lovely girl; but, since it would have required an income equal to his father's to take her in the society he had been used to going with, he did not attempt it But this in comparison with the young couple's real condition was a bagatelle. They bad nothing whatever to live on and sank rapidly into poverty.  The elder Van G., though it nearly broke his heart to go to functions without his double, chose what he considered the lesser of two evils and went He saw nothing of his son—not that he blamed him or was angry with him, but that he considered Harry out of the chosen set who had composed society since colonial days and it would be contamination for him to associate with any one except the elect  One day the elder Van G.—this was several years since he had parted with his son—stepped out of his club to a carriage that had been called for him. Elegantly dressed, as usnal, his bead covered with a) shining silk hat, his feet with white Ispats, his bands with tan gloves and carrying a cane, he stood for a moment looking up and down the street, then went down to the cab. The coachman annoyed him, for instead of looking straight ahead of him he turned his face in the. op posite direction.  Mr. Van G. got into the carriage and told the cabman to drive him to. the home of a lady social leader. On arriving at the door some friends of the aristocrat happened to pass, and he stopped on the sidewalk to speak to them. When doing so he happened to cast his eye to the coachman and recognized his son. He was too well bred to show surprise or shock at even this contretemps. Nor did he in any way recognize the fact that his own offspring was his cabman. When his friends passed on he went into the house before which he stood and after making a call came out, directed the coachman to drive him to his home, tipped him and went inside.  The next day the same cah was called at the same club for' the same man. On this occasion Mr. Van G. was dressed In his most ordinary costume. As he entered the cab without looking at his cabman he gave his directions as to where he wished to be driven.  The cabman started. He was directed to take his fare to bis own bumble domicile. He whipped up his horse with as much sang froid as if he had been directed to drive to a railway station; considering as he proceeded what he should do. It was evident that his father had recognized him and was going to see him and his wife, but what for he did not know. Harry and his wife lived in a small suit of rooms in a cheap flathouse. On reaching it his father without the least unbending said:  "Can you direct me to the rooms of Harry Van G.?"  "CertaiaJy. sir," said the coachman, touching his hat respectfully, and he, leading him to his rooms, rang, and the door was opened by Mrs. Van G.  Once across the threshold, a marked change came over the visitor. Taking his son's hand in one of his own, his daughter-in-law's in the other, with wet eyes, he said:  "Come home, my dear boy and girL I can stand this no longer. I shall give op society for you."  That ended the estrangement. The father was getting old and found more comfort at hot»« than lo society.  BRAKEMAN NARROWLY  ESCAPES INSTANT DEATH  Brake Rod Saves Young Man From Failing Between Gars Whe? Struck by Bridge.  Holly Met/, a C. A. and C. brakemati out of Orrville, whose home m in Akron met with an accident Tuesday that while not of a serious nature, was indeed a narrow escape from instant death. His train, was pulling into Brink Haven at eight o'clock on that night, and had slowed up because of orders to take water. Met* was riding on top of a large furniture car and thoughtlessly remained standing when his car approached the Toledo and Walhonding Valley railroad overhead bridge. Guard ropes suspended in the air near the bridge to warn railway tren of the danger in standing up, were removed, 'tis said, by the floods of last spring, otherwise the brakernen would have been cautioned and the accident avoided.  The lower part of the span grazed the top of his head and removed about an inch of hair and caused a painful scalp wound. Metz was dazed and knocked to the end of rar anil rmlv for th® hrnkft rod, would have dropped- between the cars and possibly to the rails and ground to pieces. He was taken to a doctor's office at Brink Haven, where the wound was dressed. Metz returned to Orrville Wednesday morning.  The brakeman, on the streets during the day, was congratulated by his friends upon his fortunate escape. Metz has been employed as a brakeman on the Akron division for over a year, and came to Orrville from Akron at that time.  CHURCH HAPPENINGS.
