It appears from tho old will of Colo-
nol Abraham do Peystcr that ho ordered
bell to bo mado in Holland for tho
Middle church, then occupying tho Eito
of tho old fort at the Battery. Tho peo
plo of Holland woro so pleased at being
thus remembered by ono of their num

coins wero thrown into tho smelting
pot which contained- tho metal for tho
bell ns an evidence of their apprecia
tion. During tho Revolution the Middle
church was put to straugu uses. Re
moving tho pulpit, gallery, pows and
flooring, tho British dragoons converted
it into n riding academy.
John Oothont was granted permission
from Commander in Chief Lord Howe
to remove tho DePeyster bell to a place
of safety. Accordingly, in tho most un
obtrnsivo manner possible, tho boll was
sent to Chambersburg, Pa.
When peace was restored, tho bell
was hung in tho steeplo of the Middle

government for postofflco purposes, and
which many remember as tho old Post
office building. A littlo more journey

HIS SMILE WENT WITH THE POSE.
The Model In the Life Class Smiled Sim
ply For the Sake of Art.
An amusing incident occurred not
long ago in a well known New Vork
art school. The girl students wero draw
ing from lifo n study of the "Dancing
Faun. A good looking Italian boy
was tho model, and as ho assumed tne
requtsito pose his face became wreathed
in smiles. Ho was gazing directly at the
class, and each girl imagined the smilo
was directed at her.
"How very embarrassing," said a
Long Island girl. "I wish to goodness
ho wouldn't grin at nie.
Iu spite of tho indignant glances cast
at hiui tho son of Italy continued to
smilo at tho blushing girls.
Presently a stolid German girl looked
up aud noticed the smile, which she
imagined was aimed directly at her.

want you to schmile at u." Tho boy's
uro instantly straightened up, aud

given to tneso two American poems,
Longfellow, in 1S5S, published a third.
"Tho Courtship of Miles Staudish."
Iu this ho told uo p.ithetio talo of part

from tho annals of his own aucciton?,

low poet, Bryant) was a direct descend
ant of John Alden aud Priscilla, the
Puritan maiden, whoso wooing ha nar
rated. "Thtj-CourUhip of Miles Stan

ecessors, "Evangeliuo" and "Hiawa

heart by tho American people, nil wero

tho poet's life, when his family were
growing up about him, when ho was in
tho full possession of his powers nnd had

Lablachu had tho most magnificent
bassvoico ever known to tho lyric stage.
It had a compass of two octaves from

Ho was a man of prodigious size and
strength, and his voico was proportioned
to his physical dimensions. Nothing
was ablo to overcome or drown it, and

it boomed out as lustily as though alone.

A telegram waa received this morning
in the United Siatf a district attorney's
office from Postmaster S. Ii. Green, of
Oregon City, utating that the office had
been entered laet night by burglars, the
eafe had been robbed and in the neigh
borhood of $2000 in mooey, registered
letters and stamps taken.
District Attorney Mnruby at
started for the scene and this afternoon j
telephoned to Assistant Attorney
Schnabel the following particulars:
"The burglars are not only experts at
their business, but are evidently mem
bers of a well-organized gang who have
recently arrived in Oregon from Cali
fornia. The work of the men on the
Oregon City safe ia identical with that of
the burglars who oa Wednesday night
last blew open the safe of the Hubbard
poetoflice. After that job they have
come to Oregon City, and are no doubt
now in Portland.
"Tho postoffice in Oregon City occu
pies the rear of a lanre store on the main
street, the front of the room being taken
up with a stationery and cigar store.
The burglars effected an entrance by
pri ing opon a rear door with a 'Ummy.'
"They must have first gone to the
cigar stand, which was mulcted of its
choicest cigars and a few cents in change
left in the money-drawer. The men
then attacked the safe of Postmaster
Green, successfully opening it and tak
ing every possible thing of value the safe
contained, even to the private papers ol
Mr. Green, which could be cf no value
to them, acd the pennies in the etamp
drawer. "With cash, registered letteis,
stamps, etc., the robbers must have get
away with at least $-J0u0.
"Secret Service Inspector Gordon,
who lias been to Hubbard investigating
the burglary there, waa intercepted while
returning on the Salem train this after
noon aud is now in Oregon City.
"Thus far noclew to the perpetrators
of the burg'ary here, beyond that it ia

robbed the Hubbard office, has been ob
COLUMBIA CALENDAR FOR 1897.
The twelith anneal issue of the 1
Columbia Pa.i Calendar has made its ap
pearance iu more pleasing form than
ever before, liavmg scattered through its
daily leavea many charming illustra
tions, with an appropriate thought cr
verse for each day in the year. Among
the topics are bicvciing, outdoor lift, and
co-jd roa N. Thf cycii i fr.iti-rnity, to
say nothing of the general public, ha
acquired a decidedly friendly feeling fi r
the Columbia Calender, Janii its annual
advent is always looked forward to with
interest ai.d pleasure.
The 1S97 calendar contains a uniqne
arrangement of dates that will prove
very helpful and convenient to busy
men, and plenty of space is allowed for
memoranda, so that the block may be
used as a diary, or in atiy event will be
come a storehouse of the many little
things and desires to be reminded of
day by day.
The twelfth edition is bright with con
tributions from frieida and tiders of
the Columbia bicycle, for such a host of
friends has the calendar acquired that it
has become a customary practice for !
wheelmen all over the country to jot
down their best thoughts and inspira
tions after the exhilarating influence of
a Columbia ride and send them in to
brighten the calendar's pages. In addi
tion, the moon's phases are indicated
for the benefit of those who wish to
know the best time for night riding.
One feature of tbn calendar is its neat
stand, so arrarged that the block can
either bo used upon the desk or hung
upon the wall.
The calendar cau be obtained for live-two-cent
stamps by addressing tho Cal
endar Department of the Pope Manu
facturing Company at Hartford, Conn.

No Duty on Silver.
Washington, Dec. 16. Members of
the honse ways and mean? committee pay
the report outlining an elaborate scheme
(ora tariff on silver in the new bill ia
merjIy fiction. No 6Ucb propc8;tioQ haa
been considered, although it is generally
understood that there will be a duty on
all ores of which eil?er is a by-product.
A member of the committee said to
day. "A doty on silver would be as useless
as a duty on rainwater for the reason
that no silver ia imported into this coun
try. The only thing we can do for the
silver miners will be to put a duty on
Mexican lead ore of which silver ia a by
product. By doing this we can give
protection to the lead interests and in
cidentally to the silver miners."
