The door of a vine-clad little cottage
opened suddenly, and a maiden clad in
white appeared and walked toward the
thick, dark, coed forest back of the vil
lage. She was Alexia vonamagdra Less
chneiflovitch, daughter of tho wealth
iest man in the village. By her side
gamboled her little white dog Fido

side in mad pursuit of a golden butter
fly; returning, he jumped up before
his mistress, soiling her pretty white
gown with his wet and dirty paws.

"It is L Alexievonamagdra Less

for it was a young man who had come
suddenly from the forest.
"Why art thou sad, my Dimitredis

his gloomy face.
"Ah, Alexievonamagdra, if I could
only know that I waa indeed thy

"Ha! dost thou not know? Thy

I spoke to him about our marriage,

1 he Effect of Association.
No two Individuals can come into con
tact with each other without each be
ing affected by that contact. An infer
ior may help or harm a superior; but as
a superior may the more easily help an
inferior, so the superior is in the greater
danger ot harming the inferior. It is
generally a matter of more importance,
ultimately, to grown people how they
act in the presence of children, than
how children act in their presence, la
view of this truth, it is the duty of eve
ry one to study how he should act in
the presence of those with whom he
may be thrown. S. & Time.

An ingenious builder of town flats
was struck recently by an idea which
he has put into effect with great suc
cess in his latest building. Ho noticed
that ono of tho first things his tenants
did when they went into a house waa
to bang portieres in every available
doorway. Ho has saved them some
trouble and himself the expense of
doors by putting a simple rod for tho
curtain instead of tha door in each of
the inner doorways in his latest flats.
Hie idea was novel enough to catch
the househunting mind, and he gets
more rent for the flats than though
they were fitted with doors, and has
no lack of tenant.

Some birds have the sense, in
stinct, discretion, or whatever it may
be called, to keep their nests in har
mony with their surroundings. For
instance: When the wren builds her
nest near the ground she forms her
nest of tho long, withered grass, such
as grows about the spot. When her
nest is in a spruce tree she covers it
with green moss, which resembles the
foliage of the spruce. -
A resident of the town of Corina,
Minn., in digging for a cellar came
across tho remains of seven persons in
a good state of preservation. They
were found in a kind of a mound, were

and must have been placed there at
least two hundred years ago, as on the
top of the mound was the stump of an
old elm tree two feet in diameter.

Ft la Own Words to lj.nd, the Artist, Who
rainted His 1'ictnr.
When David was commissioned to .
paint his pietnre of Napoleon crossing
the Alps he asked the First Consul to
name a day when he would sit. "Sit."
said Botiaj afte; "to what good? Do
you suppose tba great men of anti
quity sat for their portraits?" But I
paint you for your own times, for men
who have known and seen you; they
expect a pood likeness. "A good
likeness! It is not the exactitude of
the features, the little wart on the-,
nose, that makes a likeness. What
ought to be painted is the t-haract' - of
the physiognomy. No one inquires if
the portraits of grent men are alike; it
i quite enough if they manifest their
genius. I his story shows how early
the pprpose was former! in Bonaparte's
mind to render himself the subject of
a myth, and to thia end he sought to
employ poet as well as painters. It
was totally unnecessary; for his aspir
ation in Italy, in 1800, was in itself
quite sufficient to render him a legend
ary hero. A young roan of ansU-re
manners, ascetic appearance, with the
head and fai-e of an ideal Caesar, say
ing little but doing much, deterred by
no scruple and by no obstacle, leading
his dazd and fascinated army from
Turin to Milan, from Milan to Verona,
from Yerotis to Veniee. he could not
fail to arouse the imagination of friend
nd foe. Portraits more evidently
mythical were not slow to . ap
pear, sometimes accompanied, by
enthusiastic verses. Bonaparte ca
reenng through Italy on a living
steed, with Fame blowing a trumpet
and holding in readiness the palm of
victory, well expressed the popular
idea of the hero of Areola. But foreign
nations were not lhti3 fascinated. To
England especially he was becoming a
terror and a danger. His portraiture
at this time was chiefly in the hands of
the caricaturists, and it is curious
notice how difficult they found the Ef
fort to make it lodierous and ugly.
Rowland son's "First Consul," with hi3
powdered hair, bis feeble face, stiff
cravat, cambric-tipped, long red man
tle, short frock, tri-colored scarf and

mir grandfathers like some Twelfth
Night" character. But Gillray. with
better art, really gavo the public some
thing like a resemblance of Bonaparte.

"Little Bouncing B.," or "Little
Boney," was Johnny Bull's good
humored notion concerning the man
who over the water took such gigantic
proportion. The Engrish caricaturists
conceived him as an iron-hearted homi
eide, capable, when needful, of being
most insinuating and plausible. Their
portraiture has all the character of &
popular myth, profoundly true in it
self, but singularly coarse and brutal,
handled, after their own manner. In
one of G'l'rr-.y's desigrns we get Bona
parte's portrait rendered as hang-dog
and felonious as possible in the midst
of all kinds of emblems intended to
set forth the popular English notion
of republican France. Around the
portrait are written the words: "And

His labors." Magazine of ArL
SCHOOL OF PATIENCE.
Tho Sort of Mas hw. Fortitude Tries a
My dear boy, if a man can only cul
tivate patience and strength it seems to
me lie win oe a goou neighbor, a
pleasant man to do business witlu a
safe man to trust and the kind of a man
the world loves, even though he lack
wisdom, and hath no genius, and em't
tell a good story or sing a note. How
much does the fretful, restless hurry
ing old world owe to the patient ni-tn,
and confidence," who can be patient
with our faults, our fancies, our wick
edness; who can be quiet when the
oftest word would have a sting; who
can wait for storms to blow over and
for wrongs to right themselves; who
can patiently and silently endure a
slight until he has forgotten it and
who can even be patient with himself.
That s the fellow, my boy, who tries
my patience ana strengtn more than
any man else with whom I have to
deal. I could set along with the rest
of the world well enough if he were
only out of it. I can meet
all my other cares and enemies
bravely and cheerfully enough. But
when myself conies to me, with his
heart-aches and blunders and stumb
ling, with his own follies and troubles
and sins, somehow he takes all the
tuck out of me. My strength is weak
ness and my patience is folly when I
come to deal with him. He tires me
He is sneh a fool. He makes the same
stupid b'hnders in the same stupid way
o many times. sometimes when I
think I must put np with him tnd his
ways all my life, 1 want to give up.
And then the next time he comes to
me with his cares and the same old
troubles, he seems so helpless and pen
itent that I feel sorry for him, and try
to be patient with him. and promise to
help him all I can once more. Ah. bit
dear boy, as you grow older, that is
the fellow who will try you, and tor
ment you, and draw on your sympathy
and tax your patience and strength.
Be patient with him, poor old , fellow,
because I think he does love yon, and
vet. as ft rule, von ar harder on him
than any -one else. Burdeite, in Chi
