AN AUTUMN REVERIE.
The Happj ' Briclo V Entranced bj
Nature and So Was John.
It was in the month of October and
they had been married four weeks.
Four blissful weeks they had been to
her in that lovely country house among
the quiet hills, says the Detroit Free
Day after day the autumn sun had
been painting the trees in wondrous
shades of tints, and now the mountains
were great banks of rich maroon, and
the valleys, flowing' silently between,
o'er streams ot .grass-green waves and
scarlet foam. 7
This afternoon she sat with him on
the long, low piazza and gazed dream
ily on the lovely picture spread be
fore. At first she talkeil to him sitting
there so comfortable in his great rus
tic chair, but her voice 'grew softer and
softer until it died away in whispers
and she was still.
The mystic, restful touch of the
sweet October days was upon her, and
it was blissful peace to sit idly in the
sun and look upon the beauties of the
scene silent she, as it was.
The old life of her girlhood had gone
and she stood upon the threshold of
this new life this wondrous hall of
womanhood, extending far, far before
her, as were the valleys spread below
There was upon her soul the inef
fable calm of autumn time, and the,
magic of the afternoon fascinated her.
And it was not for her alone, but
him; this man who now was part and
parcel of her life.
He, too, she felt, must feel the rap
turous thrill, the weird and witching
spirit of the hour.
"John," she whispered, softly, as the
hum of bee that knocks at the door of
every honeyed flower.
But John did not respond.
Ah, he too, is clothed in this charm,
"John," she said, again, this time
with eager tone, as if to call him
from his reverie and share with her
the raphsody that moved, her very
But to her ears no answer came to
lay its soft response upin her heart.
John was sound asleep.
PREVENTIVE AGAINST COLDS.
German's Novel Method of Keeping the
Feet Warm In Cold Weather.
Warm feet during wet weather are
the best preventive against so-called
"colds" and their often dangerous con
sequences. Rubber shoes and cork scles
have been pretty generally used to avoid
getting cold and wet feet, but a new and
very curious means to warm the feet
has recently been patented by Paul
Wonneberger, of Gruna, near Dresden,
says the Philadelphia Record. He calls
his invention "heatablc sbOvs.'' Within
the heel of the shoe, which is hollowed
out, there is a receptacle for a glowing
substance, similar to that used in the
Japanese handwarmers. Between the
soles, imbedded in asbestos covers, there
is a rubber bag, which is filled with wa
ter. The water is heated above the
heel, and as it circulates while the
wearer of the shoe is walking it keeps
the entire nether Kurfaee of the foot
warm. A small safety valve is provided,
and the bag cannot burst. The warmth
given by this sole never rises above
70 degrees Fahrenheit, and wi.'l last for
about eight hours. Trip shoes are little
hea.vier than ordinary ones, and the
sole is but slightly thicker than that of
the so-called wet weather boot.
Alexius Columbus, a former ship
builder, now ninety-seven years old,
who claims to be a lineal descendant
of great Christopher, has been discov
ered in Buffalo, X. Y.
Rev. Ira Chase, Indiana's ex-preacher-governor,
was by turns school
teacher, soldier, clergyman, lieutenant
governor, governor and bank organ
izer under Zimri Dwiggins.
Edward E. Hale says that his no
tion of happiness is that a person who
sleeps nine hours out of every twenty
four and lives in the open air two or
three hours of every day will be in
good health if he does not drink liquor.
The variations which time works in
family names was well illustrated at
the Scotch family gathering in Chica
go. Various members of the clan spell
their names McLean, MacLean, lie
Lain, McClean and McLane. The chief's
name is spelled Maclean.

TWO INVENTIVE THIEVES.
They Took a Bicycle from the Rider on
T a Bet. ;
The bicycle, thief is inventive this
year. A young man was practicing cir
cles in front of his house when two fel
lows stopped on the pavement to admire
him. One of them, says the New York
Herald, asked how much; the wheel
weighed, and the young man said it
weighed 22 pounds. . ,
The smaller of the two said that was
too light, and that he believed in wheels
weighing at least 30 pounds. Also, he
mentioned that he once came in first
in a ten-mile race and rode a wheel
weighing 38 pounds. At this the larger
of the strangers laughed derisively, and
said: . ,
"What do you know about wheels?"
"Why, I've ridden more wheels than
you ever saw," replied the other.
"I don't believe you can ride at all."
"I'll bet you five dollars I can. , Let me
fchow him on- your wheel. I won't hurt
He could ride all right. He wobbled
slowly on the wheel for a short distance,
end then swished around the corner and
was away like the wind.
"You'd better run after that fellow,"
said the stranger;- "I don't know him,"
The owner of the wheel set. off, but
the short stranger must have been a
mile away by that time. Then when the
owner came back the stranger also had

English xrds Who Deliver Sunday Dla
Emperor William's taste for preach

fied ecclesiastic within reach, is far
more common fancy than inost'people
might be willing to imagine. Under the
circumstances it is difficult to under
stand the surprise which has been
caused by his insistence in delivering
the Sunday discourse during the recent
yachting trip in the Mediterranean, al
though he had on board, witii him the
chief of the court chaplains.
Thus in England there ere at least
a dozen secular members of the house

to their own households and tenants,
actually travel about in England and on
the continent preaching wherever they
can find either a congregation or a pul
pit at their disposal.
Several of them, such as, for instance,
Lord Radstock, have incurred the wrath
of foreign governments in consequence
of their religious zeal.
The young Earl Beauchamp) is an
other of these lay preachers, but he con

The present duke of Hamilton does a
