To came to the United states nod followed the profession of Shoemaker until the War broke out when he joined the tenth United states infantry regiment at Newport Barracks by. To fought through the War and the terrible scenes 011 tie Battlefield led hint to thinking. To imagined lie had done wrong and that repentance would to the Only Way to salvation. He started to do that by carrying what he called the a a Black Cress Quot for 1.1 veins. During this Timo to was to have no fixed abode to accumulate no property to make no friends and to shun Mankind. He wandered Back and Forth across Tho country and then one night the a spirit Quot appeared to him while lie was walking Between a Luo Nalale and Kos Cdale.

Ill cycling on the Stoa cd. There Are very few people of Tho farming class who if properly approached will decline to take you in for the night provided yen Are reasonably Well dressed a gentlemanly looking personage and Are not Trivic Ling in a company of More Titan two. Including yourself. You ride along through the Day and toward evening conic upon some attractive looking farmhouse. You approach and ask the mistress if she will take you Ami your Friend in for the night adding that you Are travelling of a tour from such a Point to Saeli a Point that you will gladly pay for what rest and food she can give you. In Niue cases out of ten she will take Yon in after a Short talk. An evening spent with the Farmer and la wife end family if you enter into tie spirit of the thing is one of the most enjoyable of evenings and at the same time one of the most valuable methods for picking up a Koiv ledge of tie people of Liis country who live out of your immediate sphere. Toward bedtime they will probably want to put Ycu in the spare chamber which in such Homes Means the one unused room of the House it Yon decline and take one of the poorer but frequently used rooms Ycu will tie happier. In any Case the mistress of the House will probably think More of Yon and charge you less. Often in the morning when you set out to continue your journey the Furmer and i wife will laugh at the idea of payment. In that ease it is due to those who come after Yon As Well a us to yourself that when you return Home you Send them some big in the nature of a present or remembrance. In this Way some very pleasant evenings Are passed and some attractive acquaintances made. New places Are discovered and new features of old places found out from Day to Day and Over and above All it is the most inexpensive method of travelling afoot or wheel that can bound table. _ education s ,>1,1 growth in slyly years. Quot books co years ago were few in comparison with now a writes William George Jordan in the ladies Home journal. A the Public libraries of the United Stutes Ull put together had Only half a million volumes in 1837. This is less than the by Stu Public Library contain.-, today. Three of our american libraries have together More books than were in All the Public libraries of England Ireland Scotland and Wales when Victoria ascended the throne. Ignorance was general. Forty per cent of Tho men and �5 per cent of tie women of gloat Britain could not write their own mimics when Victoria became their Queen. The National educational system was but three years old its Money Grants amounted to Only $300,000. Uncle Sam now spends 1-10,- a your for teachers and superintendents of our Public schools.

After july 4 the convicts with a Good record in the Kansas state Penitentiary will Wear suits of Cadet Gray instead of striped suits. In referring to the matter the Warden of Tho Penitentiary says Quot i believe Tho change will have beneficial results. When 1 made the imn Otince meet to the men of the proposed change they seemed highly delighted with Tho Prospect. Since that Timo i have observed a difference in the Demeanour of Tho prisoners Aud the class of offences has been of a More trivial character. The Stripe is older than the Penitentiary in this country. It came across the Ocean. Tho Loeks Trp came with it. To associate both with Tho Penitentiary and in the Public mind the chief Mark of disgrace in going to the Penitentiary is the donning of the stripes. The convicts know this Aud hence the Opportunity to kick out of them is seized upon by All my suit to prison especially by men who Silil possess Hope and ambition to u something better Thuu convicts.

On Tho trip of Tho delegates to the postal Congress Down the River to mount Vernon i gently a Strong wind was blowing off Shore and jus before the boat reached mount you Tho Recze wafted a very boil odor to the nostrils of the distinguished foreigners and caused the ladies ill the party to produce their perfumed handkerchiefs and the gentlemen to puff fiercely on their highly Flavoured cigars and cigarettes. When Tho delegates Hud arrived and were walking about the Bountiful grounds Aud taking careful unto of everything they saw Many were noticed to cast their eyes heavenward and Point out to one another Tho half dozen or More Large Birds which were sailing and circling above their Heads. His excellency the Deligato from Austria was one Whoso attention was directed to these Birds. To approached or. Robert Hatcher Tho american Secretary who had won Tho admiration of the delegates by his Lucid of All things seen and unseen about which they inquired during their stay in Tho City and in Chico Fruch remarked a a Mousie the Secretary i am glad.

Alas Ana alas Monsieur they Are Buzzards Turkey Buzzards. I respectfully refer Monsieur to Bis Eucy Clouedia to learn to character of this or. Hutcher heaved a deep sigh and the Delegate walked away with a sorrowful but puzzled expression. This made or. Hutcher even sadder Aud calling to the Delegate he suggested a but Monsieur May say that he has seen american eagles at Tho Home of Washington. There will to none to dispute Bis statement. A the Delegate s face brightened to grasped or. Hatcher by the hand Shook it warmly offered him a cigarette and then bowed himself away Budiu diplomatic Luu fungo the incident Niue be regarded As Post. Dut mail the Deer. Donald the Deer was for several years the pet of the Quot Auld forty Twu a the historic regiment of highlanders known As the Black watch. He went with the regiment to Dublin where one Day without any previous training he took his place at the head of the troops alongside of the sergeant major and marched with them wheresoever they went he did not cure for Maneu vers and evolutions and was often a mile away feeding while the troops were drilling but when the time came for going Home he was always found at his Post. When the regiment had the duty of Gna Diug Tho Castle Donald went with them making his Way through the dense crowd of Dublin idlers As one who could Tako care of himself. Ouch a rough offended him. Donald instantly singled out the Mau and based him through the crowd. Fortunately for himself Tho rough escaped for Donald had an unpleasant Way of using his but Lars which though Cut were still formidable. On the March from Oue town to a other Donald would become foot sore Aud get out of temper then woe to the Hostler in Tho stable Yard who interfered with him after a tiring Days March. Quot Donald and another failing u great liking for alcoholic liquids Quot writes Archibald Forbes in his history of the Black watch. A a his particular a Onui ties were whisky Aud Sherry. At Limerick As soon us the officers dinner pipe sounded he made Bis Way to the mess room windows which were of Tho ground floor in search of Strong drink until at length a severe Lino had to to enforced of any enc giving it to a when the regiment went to Corfu it wus or rugged that Donnld should Bavo the Ruu of a Nobleman s Park As his temper made it inexpedient for the pet to accompany the troops to a Laud of strangers. He was tied put into a cart Aud carried off bleating pitifully and even shedding tears. In the Job Leuieu s Park he sought out of Tho Way places and declined Intercourse with Man or beast. He attacked All who approached and finally Hud to to shot. The separation from Liis beloved troopers made him a Pessimist. Now ii Korud the Conler Cleinm. A Chicago Man by the Way came Down hero two weeks or 60 ago to signify to the Powers that to Liis patriotic willingness to accept Tho Burden of a Public office. He fell in with us other Mau of the train who also was of his Way to Washington and the two struck up a smoking room acquaintance. The Chicago Mau was armed with a letter to Congress Viau Belknap of Illinois from Biff Hall an important letter which he was Aux ions to present. As soon As he arrived in Washington he West to the Capitol. Congressman Belknap was absent. He went again. The congressman was Busy. To went several times but failed to Seo the congressman though several times he met and bowed to his acquaintance of the smoking room. Finally the two Shook hands. Quot who Are you looking for Quot asked the stronger. A Why i want to Sec representative Belknap a said the Chicago Mau. A live got a letter from Bill Quot from Biff Hall a exclaimed the stranger. A a Why did t you say so in a Quot the Deuce Yon Are a Siil Tho Chicago Man and they Nedjo urged to the basement to Mako up for lost Washington Post. There were ducks. Quot one morning not Long ago a says Tho Philadelphia record a when the servants of the Cleveland household came Down stairs for their Day s work their astonished gaze rested upon ducks by the score. There Wero ducks before the porch and ducks upon Tho windowsills. Whole flocks of ducks nodded from the branches of the Trees surrounding the House and still others squatted upon the Lawn before the front of the dwelling. Little streamers of ribbons Ami flags fluttered Gayle in the morning Breeze. The of cuing of windows and doors had no disturbing effect upon the flock of Birds and a mom Cut a investigation showed that they were All Decoy ducks with which some industrious Young Nimi had decorated the sex presi dents premises during the night. The men about the place had a half Duy s work in collecting the decoys from about the House Aud from off the Trees. A praying bicycles. a re a a a or who cd to tie ii atm of their machine. La to Bic Yolo is now employed to nid the pious Buddhist in praying with greater ease Bat yet As he Hopes with Grent effect. It is from the ingenious and enterprising country of Japan that this now departure is reported. Tho Buddhist has always done his praying with Tho assistance of a wheel. Tho prayers Are placed inside Thow Hoel which turns round following Tho direction of Tho Sou Cuil delivers up to heaven the Pru yrs of the owner or of All whose thoughts Are fixed upon it. Some enormous heels Are capable of praying for thousands of people. This Mode of worship Tuny seem somewhat irresponsible to Western people but Tho Buddhist who is a Subtle Reasoner would Bouble to explain Why it is satisfactory. In various parts of the vast territory in which thu Buddhist Faith is held different motive ski were lire used in prayer we och. Somo Humble persons turn the wheel by baud but not if they Cun help it. On Tho Hills of Tibet a great stronghold of pure buddhism the wheels Uro usually so built that to wind turns them. In other places they Uro moved by water Power. But it is obvious that wind must fail occasionally and that this May happen when Tho Buddhist is particularly in need of copious prayer. Water Power too. Is often lacking. So the ingenious Jup now attaches a Small prayer wheel to Tho Hub of Bis bicycle and of lieu he takes a Rido to combines worship with Reese Tiou. By giving a Glanco at his Pedometer he can Tell just How much praying Holins clone. To can also keep an accurate daily record. A bib will enable him to toll after a number of years just How much prayer stands to Bis credit. In this Way buddhism seems to Havo Given a zest to bicycling which no other religion Cun York Jou Ruul. Birds and disease. An authority who think. Birds incapable of carrying contusion. Persons interested in Birds Havo recently been debating Tho question whether these creatures Are a Pablo of court acting diseases front human beings or of transmitting disease to human beings. Expert opinion seems to to divided. Chi Tho Oue hand or. K. Rulf director of Mcfie Dorte Welt in a recent letter to Tho president of the acclimation society asserts that tie transmission of any disease from a Bird to a Man and vice versa is absolutely impose Aible. Says or. Half Quot for More Thuu 30 years i have been occupied in keeping observing and raising exotic Birds of plan Mug consequently i have had occasion to Donl with them when ill. Every Bird tent has died has been examined and i Hare thus dissected during about 30 years several Hundred parakeets. I have always kept these Birds during their illness sometimes for a considerable period in my apartment which is somewhat restricted in size being composed of Only six rooms for four grown persons mud four children. During All this period i Havo not had a single cose of sickness in my family although the Birds Hugo Bud All possible kinds of in ladies. I am also confirmed in my belief by Tho fact that i Hugo allowed no Opportunity to pass of using for information on the subject from tie principal dealers in Birds at Hamburg Cologne London Liverpool Antwerp Amsterdam Rotterdam Marseilles and Bordeaux whenever they Hud sick Birds in considerable numbers. In no enso was i informed that any one either a member of the family or in employee Bud been attacked in Tho House of one of these merchants and i obtained the sumo information from Tho directors of Tho Grout zoological gardens at Paris and London. No contagion and i cannot insist too strongly on this Point would Ever be these however Are All negative facts and would fall to stand against even one authenticated cose of to transmission of disease to or from pet Birds. Such cases it is believed have been proved to exist by or. Lubou Banc who communicates an account of Bis investigations to the bulletin of to acclimation society. Fish with wings. To bpm scaly Filer.

Two gangs of workmen have just begun digging in Colorado the longest Tunnel which nine Over attempted to construct. Tho main bore will to 20 Miles Long and connecting with this ure subsidiary tunnels with a total length of 30 Miles. So in reality the Tusk that has been put under Way is that of digging 50 Miles of tunnels and every foot of this vast system will be Tudor pikes it Cak Aud tie mountains that Tower on each Side. Tho starting Point of Tho main Tunnel is at the foot of the Mountain leading up to pikes Peak near the old town of Colorado City. Titis Point is but n Short Dif Turco from the railroads which Span the country Between Colorado Springs Ami Manitou. From Here it runs no Roost do Southwest. Tho farther Edge of the Tunnel is at Tho Edgo of Tho mount Uius at four mile Creek Over in Fremont county cola six Miles South of cripple Creek and near the Little town of Sunol. Two gangs of men As stated Are working of the Tunnel our at each Edd. Just at present Lioy Are making Progress at the rate of 30 foot n Day. It is believed that Tho Mammoth task they have undertaken will to completed in seven years from the first of the present Mouth. The main Tunnel will pars directly under the Cone of pikes Peak at a depth of Henrly 7,000 feet Aud 2,700 feet beneath the town of Victor. Its average depth from the Suraco will to 2,800 Foet mud it is designed to test the Mineral deposits of tie territory it these great Depths. Thirty Tui los of Literals Are contemplated mud these will pass underneath All the cripple Creek District it a average depth of 2,800 feet. Cripple Creek Victor Gillette the various Small towns 1,000 mines Are to be made tributary to this vast system. Under present circumstances the distance the boo test Way from Colorado Springs to cripple Creek is 64 Milus. By Way of Tho in incl the two cities will be Only 10 Miles spurt. It is estimated by the contractors that Tho average Cost per foot of excavation will to $80. This makes Tho total probable expense of digging the Tunnel and its sub eld Iury branches $20,520,000.�?cripple Creek times. I Ivy Tombstone. It is a comparatively new idea to put up tombstones and monuments of Glass instead of Marble or Granite but it is a practical Oue and Likely to meet with great encouragement from those who desire these memorials to to lusting. Glass resists the elements and is to All intents mud purposes indestructible. Bono of Ull sorts crumbles mud disintegrates under the action of the elements. But Glass remains and will endure for centuries. It is therefore proposed that All memorial tablets monuments Aud headstones be made of Glass. Any color May to selected pure White of course having Tho first Choice. Lettering May be put on in any style Aud any device or pattern May to used. It has Long been understood that for Marine purposes thick plate Gluss is the culy practical and appropriate material resisting storms and seas As no other substance York lodger. Borneo marriage.
