Isaac's Deathly Joke.
A jolly old fellow was Isaac O. B.
Very larire, very fat, very fond of a spree,
Very fond of his frlass, very fond of his smoke,
And fonder by far, than aif these, of a joke,
To a political barbacue Isaac once went, m
And with other good fellows the day gaily spent
In eatkig and drinking, which did not agree
With the spacious interior of Isaac O. B.,
For on arriving ot home and goinjr to bed,
lie was soon taken. ill and was so short of breath
That lie thou't he was called by the grim angel death.
So he sent for a doctor, renowned for his skill,
Who hearing that Isaac was fatally ill.
Did not tarrv a moment, but unto him sped.
And found the old gentlemen groaning in bed,
With his feet very hot and his face very red.
And crying out, "Surely I soon shall be dead."
"Oh nonsense! Pooh, pooh!" said the skillful M. D.,
"Your case is not boneless, my dear Mr. B.
In fact its quite sinij.'le. The-cause is most plain,
Aiid you'I soon be as right as a trivet again.
"Xo doctor," gror-ned Isaac, "I'm striken by dea 11;
He has got me sure Oh ! 1 bavn't got breath
To tell how I suffer." "Oh! come now, sir, come,"
Snid the docUir "'tis plain tliat you should suffer some
But your pulse is not hih, you will come to no harm
For no man'ever died with his feet so warm."
"I Ijnow of-a case," gasped Isaac O. B. ,
"So your statement does not at all reassure me:
I know of a man, and his name I'll repeat
John Rogers, the martyr, lie died with warm feet."
Th? Music Teacher.
The funeral was over; her lather
was buried, and Letty Westinghoiise
stood in the parlor which was to be
hers no longer.
Ijpr tr.ink was alrpad y in the hall,
and she only waited for tiie carriage
which was to bear her away.
Letty was notr quite alone.
Walter Webster, her father's form
er clerk, who had long made his
home, and stood by her in all her
trouble, and it was not to Waiter shr
even owed the situation as music
teacher ivhich awaited her at Madam
De Vral's "select establishment lor
young ladies," for it had been filled
by his own cousin, who was leaving
to be. married, and, tluougli Walter's
intercession, had recommended Letty
as her successor.
Gladly would Walter have taken
Letty to a home of his own; but this
she had declined, so gently, yet firm
ly that he felt there was on hope for
him, while he remained as much her
faithful iriend as ever.
Walter thought, and so did others,
that the twice-removed cousin into
whose hands, as the heaviest creditor
all Mr. Westinghouse's property was
about to pass, should at least
have offered the daughter a home;
but he did not, and' Letty was so
proud and independint she would
hardly have excepted it if he had.
She would depend upon herself,
and not any one else, and very gladly
excepted the situation at Madame
D Vial's until all, Letty's thoughts
flew to one who. had promised to
care for her, and when he came home
then she would be happy.
She had not told Walter of him
before; lint a9 he stood beside her
now, while she took her last farewell
to her old homeland once more ven
tured an entreaty that at some time
if not now, he might hope to win her
she judged it best to let him know.
llI thank yon so mueh, dear Wal
ter, she said," but it can never be.
If I were free- I don't know dmt I
am not, Walter1, I am engaged to
"Then' since I cannot win you
I am glad there is some one else."
said noble-hearted Walter, "'-he i?
traveling abroad now I believe."
"Yes" said Letty.
"You have written him since"
"Yes, everything," answered Letty
understanding why Walter hesitated.
"Then it is all right, for if he is a
true man, he will hasten home at
once to take care of yon. I congrat
ulate you with all ray heart, dear
Letty. You wijl not Stay at ma-
dame's very long."
"Thank you;" perhaps not," W39
the reply, with a blrrsh and a smile.
And then, as the hack come, she
let Waiter lead her out to it.
He did not cease his care then, but
went with her to tiie-station, and
found her a comfortable seat.
"Good-by, Letty. If you ever
need a friend, remember Walter.
One kiss, dear sister for farewell; Mr.
Severance will not care, for I have
been like a brother to him for so
lie stooped and kissed her cheek
once, and was gone, and Lolty was
on her way to the world alone.
Three months later, as Letty was
tripplingup stairs to her room at
madame's, lessons over for the day, a
servant handed her a card, saying
the j gentleman was waiting in a
small back parlor.
Letty glanced at the "card:
It bore the name of Valentine Sev
erance. Her young heart gave the
l gladdest bound it was known for her
long months, as she thouaht;
"Walter was right. He has come
back to me. Oh, how glad I am!"
Andwithout waiting to go to her
room,sVe hastened into the parlor
and, in her innocent joy would have
thrown herself into her lover's arm
but his chilling face and manner in
stantly checked her and she received
his cold kiss with a sinking heaitj
"Oh, Valentine, I am so glad!"
"Well, I am not glad!" he said im
patiently. "What did you do tbis
"Do What for?' she askel, in in
"Come here disgraced yourself

tion. We can't marry on air, Letty.
"But we have hands to work," she
declared earnestly, blushing as she
spoke. ' .
.''Bother work! I don't liks work:
I must have money and I tell you
Letty, if I marry agaiust the wishes
of my folks I'll get nothing from
"Th-iy oppose it then?"queried
Lett', with asparkliiig eye:
"Not yet. They don't know the
change in your position; but, Letty,
if they find out you are here as "a
mere teacher, I couldn't even get
them to call on you, much less to re
ceive yon into their family as an
equal; I couldn't indeed, Letty."
Letty rose to her feet and slowly
drew off her engagement ring.
She was pale her eyes glittered,
but her voice 'was quite firm.
"You need not try, Mr. Sever
ance. They will never be called
upon to receive me into their family
for I will never enter it. Here, I re
turn you this j'ing. I may be a
teacher, but I am honored and re
spected here, and a thousand times
happier than I could evor be as your
wife, now I really know your nature.
"Well, I I'm sorry, you' know,

facedly, but taking the ring; I Wish
this had never happened but I don't
see how we can mar.y if you presist
"I shall presist, I tell you, Mr.
Severance, I am honored and happy
here; that is a 11. You wanceJ your

glad I know you before it was to late
Farewell, Mr. Severance, now and
She turned and swept cut of the
room, leaving him with the ring in
his hand,- in doubt weather to call
back or let her go; but selfishness tri
umphed. He eonfd not marry a poor girl,
and so he left Letty Wcstinghouse
to light the world alone, alone white
he went back to finish his travels.
Two years later, Valentine
came home again, heavily in debt,
and not having forgotten Le'tty quite
as he could have wished, for he did
not'caie as muchjfor her as he could
for any one.
It was to hot to stay in the city,
and in threo days ho was down in
the country with a party of freinds.
The morning after their arrival, as
he stood with two of his companions,
a lady and gentleman passed' them,
and something made Valentine turn
and look after her.
"Who is that?" he asked.
"The greatest catch of the season,'
replied one of his friends. She come
after wo did, last night. That is
Miss Westinghouse, the great heiress.
"Westiughouse! I knew Miss

Prof. Dufour has presented a nev;
and interesting proof iha't the earth
is round. The images of distant
objects reflected in the Lake of Gen

degree of distortion which a careful

During a totalffe of its sur-J
face the moon-assumes a copper- redr
color," which gradually fades away'
as the eclipse progresses. Mr. Wy
Mattieu Williams accounts for this
curious phenomenon by supposing
that the illuminated portion of the
lunar surface, lacking the protection
of an atmosphere, must be made red
hot by the sun's rays. Only a thin
layer of the moon's substance is so
heated, and when the sun's rays are
withdrawn it rapidly cools, causing
the fading away of the red color
when in the shadow of the earth. If
his hypothesis is correct, Mr. Will
iams believes that the surface tem
perature of the bright side of the
moon must be arjout 600 degrees.
Of course the dark side must be in-
tensely cold, so quickly does the
heat pass into space after the sun
disappears. On the whole, the moon
must.be. an uncomfortable world.
Microscopic vision has separated
ruled lines as fine as 133,000 to the

the evidence that flier lines than
that have been resolved tinder the
microscope is not conclusive.
