"Rodney's Ride." In that soft mid-land where the breezes bear The North and the South on the genial air, Through the County of Kent on affairs of State Rode Caesar Rodney, the Delagate. Burly and big and bold and bluff, In his three-cornered hat and his coat of snuff, A foe to King George and the English state Was Caesar Rodney, the Delegate. Into Dover Village he rode apace, And his kinsfolk knew, from his anxious face, It was matter grave that had brought him' there, To the counties three, upon the Delaware. "Money and men we must have," he said, "Or' the Congress falls and our cause is dead; Give us both, and the king shall not work his will We are Men since the blood of Bunker Hill r Comes a rider swift on a panting bay ; "Hollo, Rodney, ho ! you must save the day, For the Congress halts at a deed so great. And your vote alone may decide its fate !" Answered Rodney then: "I will ride with speed ; It is Liberty's stress, it ia Freedom's need. When stands it?" "To-night; not a mo ment spare, But ride like the wind from the Dela ware." "Ho, saddle the black ! I've but half a day, And the Congress sits eighty miles away, But I'll be la time, if God grants me grace, To shake my fist in King George's face." He is up ; he is off 1 And the black horse files On the northward road ere the "God speed I" dies. It is a gallop and spur, as the leagues they clear, And the clustering milestones move a- rear. It is two of the clock ; and the fleet hoofs fling The Flelduboro' dust with a clang and cling. It la three; and he gallops with slack rein where The road winds down to the Delaware, Four; and he spurs into Newcastle town. From his panting steed be gets him down "A fresh one, quick ; not a moment wait 1 And off speeds Rodney, the Delegate. It Is five; and the beams of the western sun Tinge the spires of Wilmington gold and dun ; Six; and the dust of the Chester street Flies back in a cloud from his courser's feet. It is seven ; the horseboat, broad of beam, At the Schuylkill ferry crawls over the stream And at seven-fifteen by the Rlttenhousa clock lie flings his rein to the tavern Jock. The Congress is met ; the debate's begun, And Liberty lags for the vote of one When into the hall, not a moment late, Walks Caesar Rodney, the Delegate. Not a moment late, and that half-day's ride Forwards the world with a mighty stride ; For the Act was passed ere the mid night stroke O'er the Quaker City its echoes woke. At Tyranny's feet was the gauntlet flung "We are free 1" all the bells through the colonies rung. And the sons of the free may recall with pride The day of Delegate Rodney's ride. Elbrlge S. Brooks.

U AnKf on because It Is productive of so much genuine amusement, says the Xew j York American. Each guest who re ceives an invitation is requested to bring a photograph of himself or her self taken before the age of five. All the photographs are duly numbered, and a list of names Is kept by the hostess. After being collected and shuffled they are distributed among the players. The fun consists in endeavoring to trace the originals of portraits. So many minutes are permitted for ob servation, and then the number of the photograph and the guess at Its Iden tity are written on a sheet of note paper. The pictures are then passed on from one to another, and the same program is gone through with the new observer. The result of the second ob servation Is also recorded. This goes on until every photograph has passed through the hands of each guest. The lists are then Inscribed with the players' names and are col lected. The player who Is successful In fixing the Identity in most cases re ceives the first prize, and the second and third prizes go to the "nests" In the numlier of accurate guesses. The sight of a perplexed player star ing fixedly at each guest until he can make up his mind who was the plump boy In the velvet knickerbockers or the chubby-cheeked girl In pinafores and plaits Is funny.

RHEUMATISM CAN NOT BE RUBBED AWAY It Is perfectly natural to rub the spot that hurts, and when the musclei nerves, joints and bone3 are throbbing and twitching1 with the pains ot Rheumatism the sufferer is apt ta turn to the liniment bottle, or some othefi external application, ia an effort to get relief from the disease, by producing counter-irritation on the flesh. Such treatment will quiet the pain tempo rarily, but can have no direct curative effect on the real disease because it does not reach the blood, where the cause is located. Rheumatism is mora than skin deep it is rooted and grounded in the blood and can only ba reached by constitutional treatment IT CANNOT BU RUBBED AWAY. Rheumatism is due to an excess of uric acid in the blood, brought about by the accumulation in the system of refuse matter which the natural avenues of bodily waste, the Bowels and Kidneys, have failed to carry off. Thia refuse matter, cominrj ia contact with the different acids of the body, forma uric acid wnicn is absorbed into the blood and distributed to all parts of tha body, and Rheumatism gets possession of the system. The aches and paina are only symptoms, and though they may be scattered or relieved frr a time by surface treatment, they will reappear ct the first exposure V cold or dampness, or aitcr an attack of indigestion cr other irregularity. Rheuma tism can never be permanently cured while the circulation remains saturated with irritating, pain-producing uric acid poison. The disease will shift from muscle to muscle or joint to joint, settling on the nerves, causing inflammation and swelling and such terrible pains that the ncrvoua system is often shattered, the health undermined, and perhaps the patient becomes oeiormea ana cnppioa lor inc. t. . s. tiiorougMy cleanse3 tae blood ana renovates the circulation by neutralizing the acids and expelling all foreign matter from the system.
