The Irobl)I Canne of Feeling; Bora ot
Ignorance and Superstition.
Turning1 back to the heathen' and the
savago, we see at once whence comes
tho old feeling: about mountains, a feel
ing born of dark shadows that disap
pear in the light of knowledge. We
hare all heard of tho Brocken and ita
witch revels, made famous by the
peniua of Goethe. The Harta mount
ains are so rich in superstitious le
gends, not that they have more impos
ing features of their own than many
other less celebrated mountains, but
because, standing out by themselves
on the great northern flats of Ger
many, they powerfully impressed the
imagination of the lowlanders around,
and because, this district being one of
the last converted to Christianity, they
long continued to be a retreat for
pagan rites, and thus gained their
jrrim reputation as a seat of witch
craft. Here, as is well known, ap
pears the Specter of the Brocken,
when, at sunrise or sunset, the amazed
traveler happens to see a magnificent
reflection of his own figure thrown
upon the ,sheet of mist vailing some
opposite peak. The most extraordi
nary of all such appearances seem to
bo that observed at Adam's Peak, in
Ceylon; as described for us through a
recent; expedition undertaken by the
Hon. Ralph Abercromby and two other
men of science:
This mountain rises in an abrupt
cone, 1,000 feet above the chain and
7,652 feet above sea level. It lies near
an elbow in the main range, while a
gorge runs up from the northeast just
to the. west of it. When, then, the
northeast monsoon blows morning
mist up the valley, light wreaths of
condensed vapor pass to the west of
the peak, and catch the shadows at
sunrise. The party reached the sum
mit on the night of February 21, 1886
amid rain, mist and wind. Early next
morning the foreglow began to bright
en the under surface of the stratus
" cloud with orange; patches of white
mist filled the hollows, and sometimes
masses of mistr coming from the val-
ley, enveloped them with condensed
vaporx. At 6:30 a. m. the sun
peeped through a chink in the
clouds, and they " saw the
pointed shadow of the peak lying on
the misty land. Soon a complete pris
matic circle of about eight degrees
diameter, with the red outside, formed
round the summit of the peak as a
center. The meteorologist, knowing
that with this bow there ought to be
spectral figures, waved his hand about.
and immediately found giant shadowy
arms moving in the center of the rain
bow. Two dark rays shot upward and
outward on either side of the cen
ter, and appeared to be nearly in a
prolongation of the lines of the slope
of the peak below. Three times with
in a quarter of an hour this appearance
was repeated as the mist drove up in
proper quantities, and fitful glimpses
of the sun gave sufficient light
to" throw..:- a shadow and form a
circular- rainbow. In every case
the shadow and bow were seen
in front of land, and never against the
sky. When the sun rose pretty high,
the.r characteristic peculiarity of the
shadow was beautifully observed. As
a thin wreath of condensed vapor
came up the valley at a proper height,
a resplendent bow formed round the
shadow, while both seemed to stand
up majestically in front of the observ
ers, and then the shadow fell down
upon the land, and the bow vanished
as the mist passed on. About an hour
later the sun again shone out, but
much higher and stronger than before.
and then they saw a brighter and
sharper shadow of the peak, this time
encircled by a double bow; and their
own spectral arms were again visible.
The shadow, the double bow, and
slant o forms combined to make this
phenomenon the most marked in the
whole world. Ascott B. Mope.
DOING ONE'S DUT i
The Highest PrivUeg-e nd Trsest KnJ or-
ment of a Trne Man.
Most well-disposed persons think
their time ought to be fairly divided
between duties and pleasures, and
their chief trouble of conscience is as
to the proper proportion of time to be
assigned in the one direction or in the
other. When a plain duty presses
them, they are ready to attend to it;
but when they have the privilege of
enjoying themselves, they want to
leave all thought of duty out of their
minds. Yet as a matter of simple
truth, one's greatest pleasure ought
to-be found in duty-doing; and one s
pleasure ought never to be sought, or
one's enjoyment to be found, outside of
the plain path of duty. There is,
in fact, no truer enjoyment to a true
man thah' in the erformance of an
unmistakable duty; and there is no
privilege so high as that of attending
at the moment to that which ought to
be attended to just then. Recreation,
relaxation and diversioa may be the
supreme duty of the hour, and when
this is the case they ought to be at
tended to accordingly. And again the
straining of every nerve in the doing
oT the enduring for some earthly loved
one, or for the One who is to be loved
above all, ought to be a pleasure be
cause it is a duty. He who does not
enjoy duty-doing does not know how to
enjoy himself in any way, or how to do
dutv under any circumstances. S. S.

GOOD QUEEN BESS.
tier Childhood, Girlhood and Wonderful
: Career on the Throne.
Queen Elizabeth was born in En
gland, and simultaneously in 1533.
Her father was Henry VIII., who was
a professional widower. Her mother
was Anna Boleyn, and, like most of
Henry's wives, she met her death ac
cidentally. She Was executed when
Elizabeth was only three years old.
Henry, onee more in the honeymoon of
his widowerhood, cared but little for
the orphan. Alas! how orphan but I
Little is known about the infancy of
the young Princess. Doubtle&s she
went through the ills peculiar to all
children. In all probability she had
trouble hatching teeth, and her gums
swelled up and refused to declare their
Intentions, and had to be lanced to
briag things to a focus.
As she grew older Elizabeth ob
tained a good education in Latin,
Greek, French and Italian, and she
graduated with honors.
It takes a terribly homely girl
usually to get away with the prizos.
Pretty girls do not care for that sort
of competition. They are after the
male prizes. Elizabeth, however, as
not that sort of a girl. She was so
bashful and modest that she positively
refused to work on improper fractions.
The historian tells us that Elizabeth
accompanied her sister Mary to Lon
don, and was arrested and sent to the
Tower. Perhaps when she went to
London it was on the piano that she
accompanied her sister, for we learn
that Elizabeth was quite musical. Her
music was not always in correct time,
for while she played in the Tower she
was always behind a few bars. Her im
prisonment in the Tower made her
morose, as was shown by her flying
into a towering rage at frequent inter
vals when she got out.
At the age of twenty-five she took
her seat on the throne, and then her
troubles began. Pope Paul refused to
acknowledge her, as did Pius V. Pope
Sixtus even went so far as to treat her
like a poetical contribution that goes
into the editorial waste-basket. The
result was an excommunication.
Queen Bess, as she was familiarly
called, rather liked such treatment
after she had once got used to it.
The King of France also snubbed
her, and Philip of Spain, whom she
had jilted, sent out his Invincible
Armada. His original intention was
to take possession of England and run
it according to his own notions, but he
was induced to modify his plans. It
was a bad year for Invincible Armadas.
Some of the Spanish ships have not
jot back to Spain yet. Philip is
reported as feeling worse, than the
small boy who has just tried to smoke
his first cigar.
If the Spaniards had actually landed
they would have had to fight Queen
Bess, for she reviewed the troops in a
suit of armor an old-fashiond knight
dress, so to speak. She rode a white
horse and had red hair, thus making a

but at last the former got ahead of
Mary, and there was no more trouble.
Elizabeth never married. Her po
sition was similar to that of a female
witness in a Texas court, who declared
that she was not a widow, neither was

Queen Elizabeth was an engaged
woman. While engaged in her official
duties she was also engaged to the
Duke of Leicester, Essex, et al., but
she never married. Quite a number
of distinguished noblemen were known
to have, at one time or another, pearl
powder on their coat collars when they
emerged from the royal palace, but
that was as far as they ever got
Elizabeth was quite vain of the good
looks she didn't have. She never an
swered a call through the telephone
without smoothing down her hair,
working up a smile, and trying to
make a good impression on the trans
mitter. She also had a bad temper,
and was one of "the red-headedest and
green-eydest Queens," as it were, that
ever sat on the throne of England; but
she had pluck and good sense, and
made a nice Queen for those days.
She died March 24, 1603. Texas Sil

The Kind of Young: Men Who Are Bound
to Succeed In Life.
The principlea of business that can
be taught are no many; those that can
be learned are almost without en J.
A clerk very soon reaches the place
where he has been told all that is act
ually necessary that he should be told
about the details of the business; h
falls into the ruts of the house, under
stands the run of trade, the variations
in people and prices, and how to get in
and send out goods to the best advant
age. But all these details, while they
are necessary to be learned, only fit the
young man for that particular place,
and if he is ambitious he is always
looking to something better. Others
have been teaching him; it is necessary
that he should now teach himself.
A clerk who remains in one position
all his life advertises himself lacking
in one of two things ability or ambi
tion. There undoubtedly are instances
where a clerk is kept so constantly and
continually employed at one task that
he has no opportunity to learn any
thing but his present work, but such
instances are very rare. As a general
rule, every clerk has some time at hia
disposal, either at intervals during the
day or in the evening. These are
hours that he can not afford to throw
away. Not that it follows that he must
deprive himself of every pleasure, or
must desert every form of entertain
ment. All work and no play makes
Jack a dull boy, and dullness does not
lead to success. But let him have his
entertainment as recreation, and not
seal it as a business, and then he will
still have many valuable hours for self
improvement. One of the prosperous merchants of
this city began life as an errand boy in

It was his duty to copy the letters in
the copying press, and he read and re

He was so ready and willing to do
any and every thing asked of him that
the men sent him on many private er
rands of their own, and in return they
could not but answer his questions
when he asked about the books or the
business. A chance offered where he
might do a little writing, and he did
the work before any one there knew
that he could. There was Bome sur
prise at the good hand he wrote, still
more at the good form of his matter,

tell her you thank her, if nothing more.
She doesn't expect it; it will make her

for all that and you, too. There are
