Breathes there a man with eoul
so dead, who never to himself hath
said, "My trade of l.ate is getting
bad; I'll try acothtr ten-inch ad."
If such there be, go mark him well,
for such to bank account shall
swell; no angel watch the golden
stair, to welcome home a million
aire. The man who never atks for
trade, by ad or local lines displayed,
cares more for rest than worldly
gain, and patronage gives him but
pain. Tread lightly, friends let no
rude sound disturb his f olitude pro
found. Heie lbthim live in calm
repose, unsought except by men he
owes. And when he dies go plant
him deep, that naught may break
his dreamlesB sleep; where no rode
clamor may dispel, the quiet that
be loves'SO well. And that the
world may know its lose, place on
his grave a wreath of moss, and on
a fctone above: "Here lies, a chump
who wouldn't advertise." Ex

TRAGIC IN ITS BREVITY.
The Story- of the Duel Between Ham
ilton and Burr.
The story of the Hamilton-Burr duel
Is tragic in its brevity. The little party
of five the principals, their . seconds
and the surgeon was on the ground
not long after sunrise. The prelimi
naries were soon arranged. As Pen
dleton, Hamilton's second, gave him
his pistol, lie asked, "Will- you have
the hairspring set?" . .
"Not this time," was the significant
reply," and then the men faced each
According to the best authorities up
on a disputed subject, Burr fired at the
word. At the report, -Hamilton started
forward with a convulsive movement,
reeled, Involuntarily discharging his
pistol Into the foliage above him, and
fell headlong. Burr, with an expres
sion of pain upon his face, sprang to
ward him, but Van Ness, his second,
seized him by the arm and hurried him
down the bank and into their boat.
Hamilton, being lifted up, revived
for a moment and gasped, "This la a
mortal - wound, doctor!" .' Relapsing
again , into unconsciousness be was
again revived by the fresh air of the
river. "Pendleton knows," . he said,
trying to turn toward, his friends, "that
I did not intend to fire at him."
At 2 the afternoon following he
had breathed his last. '
, . . Monster Bowl of Punch.
In 1694 Admiral Edward Russell,
commander of the English Mediterra
nean fleet, entertained 6,000 people Id
a large garden in Alicante, where he
served the largest bowl of punch ever
brewed. It contained twenty gallons of
lime juice, four hogsheads of brandy,
one pipe of Malaga wine, twenty-five
hundred . 4 lemons, thirteen hundred
weight of fine white sugar, three pack
ages of . toasted ;. biscuits, fifty-one
pounds of grated nutmegs and , eight
hogsheads of water.
The .whole was prevented from dilu
tion In case of rain by a large canopy,
which spread over a marble fountain
bowl which held the punch. The punch
was served by a boy, who rowed about
the basin of the fountain In a boat
built for the purpose and refilled the
Two Scotch Storiea.
A Scotch schoolmaster In Banffshire
years ago had strong views on the sub
ject of dress. : In the day when crino
line was the rage a girl came to school
with a very extensive one, which much
exceeded the space between the desk
and the form on which she had to sit
The teacher, seeing this, said to her,
Gang awa' home and tak' off time
girds (hoops) and come back .to the
school as God made ye." -
Another rough and ready : dominie
was examining his boys In a catechism
and asked if God had a beginning -"No,"
said the boy. "Will he have an
end?" "Yes," he replied. This was
followed -Instantly by a buffet on the
side of the head. "Will he have an
end noo?' "No," said the boy,-and the
masterwas satisfied. .
