SUPERSTITIONS ABOUT TEA.
Quaint Ideas Concerning tho Cup That
Cliccru, but Docs Not Inebriate.
Thcro aro probably moro quaint super
stitions woven about tea than about any
thing oIeo in tho world. If you pnt
cream in your enp beforo tho sugar, it
will "cross your love, " so you must bo
very careful. If, whilo tho tea is being
made, tho lid, removed to pour iu tho
water, is forgotten to bo replaced, it is
tho suro sign of tho approaching arrival
of a stranger.
If a tea stalk float3 in tho cup, it is
called a "beau," and when this is seen
unmarried women should stir their tea
very quickly round and rouud and then
hold tho spoon upright in tho center of
If tho "beau" is attacned to tho spoon
and clings to it, ho will bo suro to call
cry shortly, if not on that very cvon-
ing, but if tho stalk goos to tho sido of
tho cup, ho will not come. In somo
places this is also said to deuoto the
coming of a stranger, and if tho stalk
is soft tho newcomer will bo a lady; if
tough, a gentleman.
If you want to know how many years
will elapso beforo yon aro married,
balanco your spoon on the edgo of your
cup, first noting that it is perfectly dry,
fill another spoon with tea, and holding
it abovo the balanced spoon let tho
drops of tea gather to tho tip of tho
spoon and gently fall into tho bowl of
tho ono below. Count the drops. Each
ono stands for a year.
If tho cluster of small air bubbles
formed by tho sugar collect and remain
in tho center of tho cup, it is a sign of
fair weather. If they rush to tho sides,'
thero will bo rain very shortly. Phil
He was born and brought up iu the
midst of poverty and comparative igno
rance. When, in 1Sj, Nathaniel Haw
thorne visited tho poet's residenco at
Dumfries and took notice of its filthy
nnd malodorous surroundings, he won
dered that Burns conld have preserved
his marvelous genius in such an unsa
vory spot Tho author of "The Scarlet
Letter" was even moro horrified at tho
wretched aspect of Burus'arm at iloss
giel and could not compare the habita
tion in which the Scottish bard passed
so many of his days to a pigsty. ' 'It is
sad," wrote Hawthorne, "to think of
anybody not to say apcet, but any hu
man being sleeping, eating, thinking,
.proving and spondincr all his home lifo
in this miserable hovel." He praises tho
"heroic merit" of Burns for being no
worse man amid "the squalid hin
drances" that beset the poet's moral and
Hawthorne was right. Low associa
iions, bad sanitary conditions and the
companionship of the vile aro all but
fatal to human virtue. Burns was never
utterly degraded. He was always, in
spite of his failings, a true man, and
his passionate love for his fellow men
outlived all his sufferings.
His relations with Jean Armou:
though they proved hio frailty and hers,
were honorable to him in some resnects,
for ho left nothing undone to ropair the
error of his youth. His intemperance
was rather the effect of his convivial
disposition thau cf any vicious tendeu
cy. It ho sinned, he paid tho penalty,
ono might say, with his life. His ca
rccr terminated at 07, aud, having re
gard to his circumstances and opportu
uitics, his record as a poet is unparal
leled, for no man ever achieved so much
as Burns with so littlo aid from tho
world and with such terrible impedi

The la3t echo of cno of Sousa's over

biils south of tho fair grounds when
General Schofield stepped in front of
tho band and saluted tho distinguished
leader. Sousa returned the salute and
Bent one of his men to escort the general
up into the band stand.
"That music was beautiful beauti
ful," exclaimed tho general as he shook
Sousa's hand warmly. "I am astonis.h
cd, sir, that you get such results with
eo little discipline."
Thero is nothing that Sousa prides y
himself moro on than being one of tho"
Strictest of disciplinarians, and he was
naturally nettled at tho general's criti
cism. "Why, general, ray men aro under
perfect control. I'm sure they aro thor
oughly drilled, and I can hardly believe
that thero is any lack of discipline. I
have never noticed it."
"No, that's just it; you don't seo it,"
persisted the general. "Isawit, though.
Do you know that as soon as you turn
your back on ono side of your band to
shake your baton at tho other those fel
lows all quit playing? Of course you
don't seo it, for as soon as you-turn
around thoy begin again."
The fun in this, at the expense of the
general, lies, of course, in the fact that
when a section of Sousa'3 men became
silent as ho turned to tho other wa3
when the musio so required. But the
general looked upon this lapse a3 he
would upon tho suspension of a section
of his artillery when ho turned his at
