Deutschland the people do not wish the cold to enter their dwellings. Not that they have aught against it for they often go out and meet it in the most Friendly manner and enjoy their gardens even Nisito mid Winter. But they do not wish the cold to come n. So in the Early Winter double windows Are put into their Homes. Be tween the window within and the one wit lion a quite a Little Garden of space. This is nearly filled with mosses Ever greens often run also up at each Side with an artificial Flower fastened Here and there to make one think it is sum Mer. Orio Clay when these were to be Adonie for Winter Emil and Gretchen two Small children begged of the Good Frau their Mother to permit them to go out and gather the mosses for the to tin s she readily consented. Then one put on his Cap and the other her Hood and they went hand in hand up n lonely and crooked Lane into the Forest. Winter had already come. Only a few leaves trembled in the wind on the naked boughs of the tall Trees. Almost All of the Little plants wore ragged and forlorn and the Flowers on the ground were dead. Mats of Brown leaves were beaten into the ground just As the fall Rains had left them. These two very Small Folk Felt most lonesome when they stepped into this great Forest. The sky and the Trees seemed so far above them and the rough ground Hurt their Young feet and there was nowhere a fire to make them warm. By and by they forgot Tho cold and loneliness for they found wonderful things hidden away. Long vines Cov ered with red berries Lay under the leaves bits of fir and Balsam abounded and upon and about an old decayed log such a Bunch of Moss As made them clap their hands and shout till Tho Woods laughed so deep and Rich that they fairly lost then Little cold red hands in it and of i so Green and Bright it was that they laughed Over and Over again to think How glad the Good Frau would be and what two children she would Thiak them for having found so great treasure. So the deep mosses softer than persian went into Young Gretchen s apron along with the fir and Balsam and Ber Ries. Besides on the very same log was a whole army of Gray coated lichens y with red Caps on their f in Niest Little soldiers you Ever saw and not an Inch Long were they. These too were going into the apron after the Raysses close up against a Happy heart with a face up above it that had Cheeks As round and red As apples and eyes As Bright As cups of water in the Sun. Then right by were two other Cheeks and two other eyes As Bright As they. Just As the Little Lichen soldiers were going in by Tho Moss the children heard a breaking of twigs As if some one were walking in the Wood. They looked up and saw a dreary old Crone coming right toward Thein the same Chili crept Over them from head to food that they Felt when first they came into the lonesome Woods and looked up at the knotty old Trees so gaunt and Bare that were swaying in the wind. Dear Gretchen Are you just a Little bit and Emil crept close to his Slater and she stood quite still and trembled very hard. And will she kill us Gretchen with her they say Good children never need to and is she a Witch Gretchen of Emil i am very much afraid what will you say i will speak very and if she lifts her then i will stay you Aro a Witch we Are god s Kleine Kinder and you dare not touch the dismal Crone Drew nearer and nearer and the Little children grew Meeker and trembled More and More. They wished the Earth would open and let them Down out of sight but the Earth did no such thing. The old woman Drew nearer and nearer and then stood still before Thorn leaning upon her staff. She looked just like the Trees gnarled and knotty and without life. She opened her thin lips and spoke and her like the North wind. What Are you doing she asked. Gathering greens for the Why do you gather to make the windows look like the then Yon ars fond of and Yon hate the Winter a and you think these Trees hateful old she asked. The children shivered 1 u you Atlow Wuo am perhaps you Are a very old answered Gretchen. For she dared not caller i am the spirit of the Trees. When winds Wail you hear my voice. Do not hate me Young children Lam not a. Witch As Yov. Thought neither am i a very old Frau As you said. Listen i am the spirit of the Trees. Nothing is Ever old. The Winter is Young As Tho summer. The heart of the Oak is Young As the greens in your apron. The heart of the Winter Trees holds sap to feed Young leaves and the ugly knot in the fire Burns a great red Coal to Mike you warm. Nothing is Ever old. What you Call age comes just before the Bright to Morrow that never grows dark or cold where All deformity passes away. What seems is not. At the heart of in Good. Adien t fear me and she lifted her staff and hobbled away sighing softly As the South winds a the breaking of Winter. Nothing grows old nothing grows then the Little children ran swiftly Home. And when they entered the House All the red apples had gone out of their Cheeks and their eyes were in deed like cups of water for the tears spilled out of them Down their Cheeks. When the Good Frau had taken them both into her arms and comforted them they told her the whole Story. Said she laughing heartily that was the harmless old body who lives in a Small House away from the Mountain top. She was a great lady once but now she is poor and has gone wrong she said tapping her fore head with her Finger. Wrong Here 1" she repeated saying just what All the world says of those who say things they cannot understand. Just a Little crazy dears but quite harmless and As Good As she can be some Day we will go and take her a seed cake and a Mug of Beer. Poor old then Tho and the children fixed the mosses into the windows and made Theta most Beautiful to Jook upon. While it the time some thing song in Young Gleichen s heart Noth ing is Ever tie unrest of this life. Eau Claire is to have a Corn festival at the Temperance Hall for the Benefit of the methodist Church at which the Bill of fare is entirely of eatables made of Corn such As succotash Green Corn tits. Well if Thoy Don t have trouble there then we Are no judge. Talk about indulging in intoxicating Bever Ages we had a thousand times rather have a stomach full of liquor than to indulge to excess in succotash. The succotash does not intoxicate it is True but it causes a feeling of unrest that is truly painful and dire distress is in Many instances the result of looking on the succotash when it is red when id liveth its color in Tho tin Skimmer. We would go As fat As anybody to con tribute funds to a methodist Church but the Church that would smuggle succotash into us in Large quantities As a charitable incentive regardless of our feelings would have something to answer for. When that succotash festival comes off Tho quiet Man who goes to work and establishes a Bazar outside for the Sale of pain killer and Brandy and Peppermint is going to not Only make Money but become a philanthropist. Of course Money can be made at such festivals but is it right to thus triple with Tho feelings of men and women to make a few paltry dollars for a Church does it not prove hurtful in the end to a Church that adopts such financial schemes now there has been no More successful festival financially than the Watermelon festival held at Waukesha a few years Ogo but no person who at tended that festival could again be induced to patronize any Money making device that the Church should get up. It will be remembered by readers of profane history thac on that occasion people were admitted free to the Festi Val and Given All the Watermelon they could eat. All partook of the Melon for the Benefit of the Church a thou Sand hearts beat Happy and when music arose with its voluptuous swell soft eyes looked love to eyes which spake again and pretty soon everybody wanted to go out doors to get some pain killer. Then it was found that the doors were locked and muscular deacons stood guard and not a Mother s son of the vast audience could get out without paying 2 shillings. The sufferers Wero got into a line and had to take their turns going out doors and much suffering resulted. Positions near the door were sold at a Premium and when nil Wero out and the suffer ers had been to or. Dunlap s drag store and obtained some Peppermint they swore they would never attend another festival. While the Church made Money for a Day it lost Money eventually. No we maintain that a Church should stick to the time Hon ored collection plate and not go into the boiled aquarium business with a Dwarf Oyster for a basis or into any of these strange com and Watermelon do vices. Give us a Square Deal and we will All take a hand but when a Church deals a Brace game Tho wayfaring Romu has no show for his s in. Nicholas. Of the emperor Nicholas who died a Quarter of a Century ago a characteristic anecdote is told in the diaries of privy councilor Boga Slovakia recently published in St. Petersburg. As he was walking one Day he heard a German Artisan declare that to would not quit Tho spot until to had seen the emperor the latter Trent toward him and demanded who he was and what he wished. The German who did not know the car answered that he was an Artisan from Hamburg and desired to submit a paper describing a now and cheap method for making shoe soles for Tho army. Why do you apply direct to the emperor inquired the Czar Why have you not first addressed yourself to some one about i wished to do so and called on the chief of police for the returned the Man but his clerk asked me to pay 300 rubles which is impossible As i have no Well my Fine said the Czar if you will Only transact your business with the emperor in person speak up for i am at this unexpected revelation the honest hamburger was so terrified that trembling from head to foot he fell on his Knees. In doing so his hat dropped from his hand. The emperor s dog his almost constant companion seizing the hat began playing with it. The emperor contemplated Che scene with characteristic Pride hugely relishing the fright of the poor Artisan. At last he pulled the hat from be tween the dog s Teeth and handing it smiling to the still kneeling hamburger said do not be alarmed my Friend give me your paper i will have it examined. Meanwhile come to the Palace where you shall have a pecuniary indemnity for the fright you have suf the hamburger himself went and from fright but his family received a regular pension. The Duke of Argyll was once giving evidence before a committee of the House of commons on the Temperance question. Said a member inquiringly one Faillie Macpherson apparently a person of authority deposes that he never saw anyone drunk in his very replied his Grace. Scotchman will hardly allow a Man to be drunk so Long As he can lie still on the a string of shiite topazes. A stranger in Baltimore a few years ago would often have met upon the streets a Bent decrepit woman Shab Bily dressed in a cheap not always clean stuff gown and faded Cotton gloves. Yet this woman had once been the wife of a King dress and display had been her ruling passions and she had even then a Large income with which to gratify them if she chose. _ there has been no More dramatic or significant figure among american women than Madame Bonaparte. In spite of her defeat in striving to gain a throne her career has been popularly regarded exceptionally Brilliant and fortunate. It is As we should look at her life in its True significance. Never was there a stronger Sermon preached against worldliness. Betty Patterson according to her own statement in her private letters was a Beautiful shrewd ambitious girl who made up her mind before she saw him to marry the probable occupant of a throne. The Man proved to be a mass of Dull coarse brutality but she shouldered the Load in Hopes of a Crown soon to find herself thrown aside and the Crown placed upon the head of another Wom an. She was selfish and ambitious with no wish to believe in god and there was a Fine eternal Justice in this Legal injustice. The tragedy of her life was not in the disappointment but in her seventy year Long struggle afterwards for Power and Money. A hut More pitiable spec Tacle than this Young Beautiful woman believing in neither god nor Man hawking her charms through Europe to make a second marriage As heartless and Brilliant As the first she writes to her father with open dislike asking to to allowed the credit of his reputed wealth to help her cheat somebody into marrying her. Her let ters to her son when he was a Man Are hard bitter and cruel. Even her son was but a tool to open her Way to fort Une. Money rank display these were her gods How did they pay her for her life Long service in Tho very flush of her triumphs she cries out i am tired of life and of Ever having and begs As Consolation not for god s help or for affection but for n string of White topazes she worked for a throne she despised All americans As vulgar she died in a cheap american boarding House where for years she had been an object of compassion to strangers to whom she would Tell for Tho thousandth time the Story of the greatness which had never been hers. There May be Young girls among our readers who like Betty Patterson turn away god and pure True love for Dis play and social Success. The Day May come when they too will to tired of life or of having lived and will know no higher Comfort than a string of White topazes. Tired of having How differ ent is this language from the humblest life of Christian Faith the riches of prayerful Effort Are More than jewels and the Hope of dwelling at last with Christ in his kingdom is after All the brightest and Best that life can afford. A newly married couples. It is the happiest and most virtuous state of society in which the husband and wife set out together and with perfect sympathy of soul graduate All their expenses plans calculations and de sires with reference to their present Means and to their future and common interest. Nothing delights Man More than to enter the neat Little tenement of the Young people who within perhaps two or three years without any resources but their own knowledge of Industry have joined heart and hand and engage to share together the responsibilities duties interests trials and pleasures of life. The industrious wife is cheerfully employing her hands in Domestic duties putting her House in order or mending her husband s clothes or pre j paring the dinner while perhaps the Little Darling sits prattling on the floor or lies sleeping in the Cradle and everything seems preparing to Welcome the happiest of husbands and the Best of fathers when he shall come Home from his toil to enjoy tie sweets of his Little Paradise. This is the True Domestic pleasure. Health Contentment love abundance and Bright prospects Are All Here. But it has become a prevalent sentiment that a Man must acquire his Fortune before he marries that the wife must have no sympathy nor share with him m Tho Pursuit of which most of the pleasure truly the Young married people must set out with As Large and expensive an establishment As is becoming those who have been wedded for Twenty years. This is very unhappy it fills the Community with bachelors who Are waiting to make their fortunes endangering virtue promoting vice destroys the True Economy and design of the Domestic institution and it promotes inefficiency among females who Are expecting to be taken up by fortunes and passively sustained without any care or concern on their part and thus Many a wife becomes As a gentleman once remarked not a but a a Bumble Bee Story. I am the son of a Jack of All and i live in the old Dominion. My father is a hard working Man but a very great Grumbler and As a general thing that kind of men Are very passionate. One Day not Many years ago we ascended a loft the kind of old structures that were to be seen in Days gone by with the staircase running up the out Side leading to a Small platform where everything was hoisted we entered this loft for the purpose of Stow ing a lot of Blade fodder. To had been at work some tune when father told me to work a. Little faster i said i was working As fast As i could. He said it was t so to have the last word. I said he was mistaken. With that he picked up a Bunch of fodder and struck at me. It would seem it was not a very formidable weapon but it proved go to him. It contained those terrible Little insects Bumble bees. When he delivered the blow it stirred them up causing them to Fly out very much enraged. They did not Stop to consider who was the disturber of their peace but took it for granted that it was the old gentleman. Having made up their minds to that effect they set to work to devour him. He twisted turned and without taking time to run Down the Steps made a flying leap for Terra Tirma reaching it with a Bop skip and a jump. He then started for the House at a gait on a Plank Road. By that time the bees Hod bad enough and so Hod he. He remarked that he was no hog knew when he had but the following Day i could have sworn he was no Kin to me. Beader what do you think that Man did he Laid it on to me with an Apple switch four feet Long. Said if it had t been for me the bees would t have stung him. I never asked them but took it for granted that it must be so. I will add that i recovered from my whipping and he from his stings about the same time. He can Tell now 300 Yards off a Bumble Bee from a horse Fly. Storms m the United states. Prof. Loomis has published some re sults of an elaborate critical study and comparison of signal service observations and weather maps carried on for Long periods to discover the movements and progressive velocities of United states storms. Some of his deductions Are of great interest. He finds that United states storm centers after Cross ing the Kocky mountains move toward the Southeast Sintil reaching the Mississippi Basin when they incline toward the Lake Region with accelerated Speed. The average velocity of american storms after crossing the Mississippi about Twenty five Miles per hour is 60 per cent greater than that of european storms. This appears paradoxical when we remember that in Europe the West Erly winds unobstructed by any coast Range like the Bocky mountains run Ning North and South attain a More rapid movement Over the continent than the same winds can acquire in the United states. But it appears from prof. Loomis examination that our storms when near Iii the hikes and subsequently Are subjected to a Power Ful propulsion from the Waves of High pressure which close in behind them while in transit and the rapid Torren tial precipitation of rain in their front quadrants by which the air is greatly rarefied and a barometric Channel cleared for the free Onward movement in Europe it is very rarely that a storm advances Over Miles in a Day. But in this country such an occurrence is much More frequent. The storm Center of Jan. 7, 1877, travelled Miles in Twenty four hours and that of the following week Jan. 14-17 travelled Miles in Twenty four hours. The storms which have been found to make their Way at these terrific speeds across the United states occur on an average about once in forty Days. But one of the most remarkable feat ures of these great hurricanes is their shallowness. The tremendous Cyclone of the last named Date passed mount Washington without disturbing its sum Mit where the signal service observer s wind vane recorded a steady wind from one Quarter during the Progress of the depression at its base. During one of the fiercest cold Waves of High Baro metric pressure the thermometer on the Summit feet High showed a higher temperature than that prevailing at the base clearly indicating that the Arctic wave was not deep enough to cover the Mountain. These and Simi Lar illustrations of the vertical proportions of both Polar Waves and barometric depressions go to prove that the chief agitation of the Ferial Ocean is limited to its Bottom strata leaving the loftier regions of the atmosphere in Undis Turbed repose save when the great up per current from the equatorial Belt is in the Ascendancy. As Roanay of the great storms which sweep Over the United states Are under the control of barometric pressures lying outside of our National territory prof. Loomis Points out the necessity of extending the signal service observations to extra territorial stations not Only with a View to their Complete elucidation but also for the practical Pur poses of weather telegraphy. The weather affecting the mind. Dull depressing Dingy Days produce dispiriting reflections and gloomy thoughts and Small wonder when we re member that the mind is not Only a motive but a receptive Organ and that All the impressions it receives from without reach it through the medium of senses which Ore directly dependent on the condition of Light and atmosphere for their action and therefore immediately influenced by the surrounding conditions. It is a common sense in Ference that if the impressions from without reach the mind through imperfectly acting organs of sense and those impressions Are themselves set in a minor tos thetic key of color sound and general qualities Tho mind must be what is called it is not Tho habit of sensible people to make sufficient allowance for this rationale of dullness and subjective weakness. Some persons Ore More dependent on external circumstances and conditions for their or the stimulus that converts potential kinetic others but All feel the influence of the world without and to this influence the sick and the weak Are especially responsive. Hence the varying temperaments of mind changing with the weather the Outlook and the wind. A cautions Sentinel. At Cambridge Gen. Washington had heard that the coloured soldiers were not to be depended upon for sentries. So one night when the password was he went outside the Camp put on an overcoat and approached the coloured Sentinel. Who goes cried the senti Nel. A replied Washington.

T. Felda. The. In Salisbury ct., about forty years ago a Man of 60 years was one Day to be publicly whipped with a cat of nine tails for the offence of owing his land lord a wealthy Man the sum of for the last Quarter s rent. Up to this time he had always managed to pay his debts Taus keeping his Back free from stripes and failing health was his excuse for not still doing so. He was daily getting More and More infirm from rheumatism which had been troubling him Many months and when tie arose from his bed on the morning of the Day on which to expected to receive the threatened chastisement it was with difficulty he could draw on the sleeve of his coat. That Savage old sheriff will about kill me in jerking off my coat and shirt sleeve from this lame Arm before he goes to whip me. He will care nothing for my groans nor screams. Of that i Ever should have lived to see this said the poor Man to his wife who had All the morning been in tears. Perhaps our Nephew will arrive in time to pay the debt and that will Settle the she said Consolin Gly. Possibly he May get our message in time but i doubt it. It is now 7 o clock if he is not Here by shall not think he will come one minute after 10, and it will be too Well if he does not come i will go with you and take half the stripes for i am just As much to blame As you for Tho no you shall not do that nor would it be allowed my poor dear with a sob she replied then i will go with you and remove your coat and shirt sleeves in so careful a Way that the old sheriff will be Apt to Deal More gently with it would mate no difference with him for he a a brute the like of which a tender hearted woman b be you can form no Conception. He has been in this business a Long time and they say he thrives in it. He looks like some glaring wild beast just ready to devour then if you cannot expect any mercy from any Quarter Why not run away there Are three hours nearly in which to get Over into York state go where our Nephew is and i will come As soon As i dear would not do i would certainly be caught and then there would be two offences to of it is hard for such an honest Man As you always have been to come to such said the woman utter ing the most despairing groan. Well do not Grieve too sadly Over it perhaps John will come yet or if he Don to i May be Able to Bear it better Ian i doomed one replied suddenly turning comforter. I really wish we had lived on Noth ing but potatoes and Salt and we might possibly have paid the i thought we were living pretty poor Jane but i suppose hereafter we shall have still less to eat As for Wear ing apparel i am sure we could not scrimp much Well let us not think about those things now James but Kneel Down and Pray to god in the eleventh hour to keep us from this dreadful chastisement. Lou know when we were first married we became quite interested in religion but somehow with the cares of this life Ever uppermost we have drifted away from our maker Little heeding his precious promises to All who will Trust in thus both Knelt praying As they had never prayed be fore and when they arose the Burden was Czafit from them and no further dread or fear possessed their souls. They Felt that their sins were forgiven that they were in the immediate care of one who would see no harm befall them. Of what a sudden translation from dark Ness into Light and they sat and song praises unto god until the hour of 10 arrived when the criminal was con ducted to the place of punishment. He went uncomplaining by while his wife remained Home in silent communion with her maker. Her husband was the first of the prisoners to be led to the Pillory and his hands were about to be bound when orders were received for his release a Ruddy wide awake Young Man loudly proclaiming the debt is paid and now hand my Uncle Over to my the surly sheriff As if defrauded of a part of his pleasurable duty reluctantly delivered the prisoner after which his Nephew fondly embraced him in presence of All who were present to witness the brutal perform ances which were about to be enacted. The Young Man then went Home with his Uncle telling him by the Way that it was Only by Acci Dent he was there to save him from punishment and disgrace. The evening be fore he had Felt a presentiment that either his Uncle and aunt were sick or in want of him some Way and no one could dissuade him from coming to them although one or two individuals had wanted his help that Day. The message sent by his aunt did not reach him but he thought Likely it would be waiting him on his return Home. He had started very Early that morning so he might be Able to them a Little visit before his return the following Day and Felt that he could never be sufficiently grateful that he came in time to save his Uncle from the unmerited punishment he had just escaped. Give god All the said his Uncle and when they reached the cottage All three Knelt in Ledger. The truth of history. The Story a going the rounds that when Abraham Lincoln in 1800, was waited upon at Springfield 111., by a committee from Washington to Ascer Tain whether he would accept a presidential nomination he was found engaged in playing a match game of base Ball. In Many of its features the Story is apocryphal but there is this foundation in the gossip of the town. A com Mittee which sought or. Lincoln out to solicit Bis views regarding either the nomination or his purposes in that re Gard did find him engaged in a game of hand Ball of which he was very fond and it is said contesting with Dave Hickey also an expert now a Street car for the local championship. When the news of his nomination reached him or. Lincoln was sitting by the Telegraph editor of the state journal Reading Tho dispatches As they came in and the chair in which he sat is still carefully preserved in that office. A physician s mistake. Or. Clemenceau the eminent Paris Ian physician is also a member at the French legislature. He is a brisk and Busy Man keenly cognizant of the fact that time is and one Day while he was in attendance at his Mont Martre consulting room two men simultaneously solicited an interview with him for the purpose of taking Hia advice. One of them admitted to Hia and what was the matter with complained of a pain in his Chest whereupon he was ordered to take off his shirt and or. Clemenceau subjected him to a careful examination. Before the doctor How Ever sat Down to write his prescription he rang the Bell and ordered his servant to show the other patient into the consulting room. As the latter entered the door Way or. Clemenceau without looking up from the desk at which he was writing said to him just undress yourself too if you will be so Good. We shall save time by your doing without a moment s hesitation the second visitor proceeded to take off his clothes and by the time the doctor had finished writing his receipt taken Bis fee and dismissed the preceding patient was stripped to the Waist ready for inspection. Turning toward him the observed you Aro also suffering from pain in the Chest Are you Well no the Man replied i have called upon you to beg that you will recommend me to the government for a place in the feminine superstitions.

Prof. Be Conte expresses his belief that the waste tissue is carried by the blood to the liver and is there separated into liver sugar and urea or some sub stance which rapidly changes in to urea. Experiments made by Schiff support this theory by proving that venous blood is soon fatal to animals if the liver is tied but is not so if the liver is free to act the poisoning being due to decomposed tissues in the blood. Com Bustion takes place in the capillaries of the tissue under the influence of venous Force As the blood remains for a longer time in the capillaries of the tissue than in any other Organ. The blood acts As a Reservoir not Only of oxygen but of food and if waste the food taken in to Day is not used to build up tissues to Day but is taken into circulation in the blood and the blood forms tissues and regenerates itself from the Supply of Tissino wasted to Day is car ried by the blood to the liver there de composed into sugar and urea and so eliminated perhaps the Day after or even a record of births. An honest Farmer of Caithness says climbers journal recording the births of his children in the family Bible wrote Betty was born of the Day that John Cathel lost his Gray Mare in he Moss. Jemmy was born the Day they began mending the roof o the Kirk. Sandy was born the night my Mother broke her leg and the Day after Kitty Ned away with the dodgers.

The wonderful instinct of locality which the cat shares with Tho Carrier Pigeon has been put to some practical use in Belgium. Thirty seven cats re siding in tha City of Liege were recently put into bags and then taken a Long Way into the country. Here they were liberated at 2 o Olock Xone afternoon and at a Quarter to 5 on the same evening one of them returned Home while All his companions arrived there within Twenty four hours after being act free. It is therefore proposed to establish a regular system of cat communication Between Liege and the neighbouring Vil Lages by Means of cats.
