    Highest of all ia Leavening Power. Latest V. S. Gov't Report
Last night some yellow letters fell
From out a scrip I found by chance. .
Among them was the silent ghost :
The spirit of my first romance,
And In a faint blue envelope
A withered rose long lost to dew .;,
Bore witness to the dashing days '
When love was large and wits were few.
Vet, standing there all worn and gray.
The teardrops quivered in my eyes,
To think of youth's unshaken front,
The forehead lifted to the skies. ,
How rough a hill my eager feet '
Flung backward when upon its crest
I saw the flutter of the lace
The wind awoke on Helen's breast!
How thornless were the roses then.
When fresh young eyes and lips were
When Cupid in our porches proved
How true the tale that love is blind!
But red and white and poverty .
Would only mate while shone the May,
Then came a bag of golden crowns
And Jingled red and white away.
t Grown old and niggard of romance,
I wince not much at aught askew,
And often ask my favorite cat -
What else had red and white to do? "
And here's the bud that rose and sank -
A crimson island on her breast.
Why should I burn it? Once again

Evened Up Matters.
r Says a writer in the St. Louis Post
Dispatch: This is a true story; could
give names and places if it were nec
essary. A French gentleman visit
ed a relative in St. Louis, and being
a great sportsman at home was taken
out one day to shoot prairie chickens.
One got up, the Frenchman fired and
missed, but as the bird sailed along
in its peculiar way he thought it
mortally wounded and ran a mile to
catch it before he found out his mis
take.' , Next year the St. Louis gen
tleman visited the French relative at
his chateau in Normandy, and being
a great sportsman at home was taken
out one day to shoot hare in the park.
The gamekeeper placed him at the
crossing of two well worn paths. ;
Soon a big hare came trotting along,
and St. Louis raised his gun. "Please
don't shoot him, monsieur," cried the
keeper. "That is old Antoine, the fa
ther of all the hares !" The gun was
dropped. Then another hare came
along.Tand the gun was raised. "Please
don't shoot her," cried the keeper.
"That is old Fiftne, the mother of all
the hares I" The gun was dropped,
and as the keeper said that the three
or four more hares that came along
ought not to be shot : because they

neighborhood of Norwich, Mr. Glad

and the other guests waiting in the
drawing room for several minutes
after the servant had announced
dinner. At last the premier entered
the room, smiling and rubbing his
hands benevolently. Looking all
around, he inquired in most genial
tones, "Are, we all mustered?" As
the host happened to have accumu

The Desert of Sahara,
The greater part of the desert of
Sahara 'is, it has been ascertained,
from . 6, 000 to 8,000 feet: above the
level of the ocean. The desert is not
rainless, but showers cover it with
grass for a few weeks every year,
large flocks and herds being main
tained upon its borders, and the
oases are depressions in which water
can be collected and stored. It was
at one time believed that the whole
of the desert was below the sea level
instead of only a comparatively
small part of it. Alexandria Corre

The Groat French Artist's Fet Model Which
: Died In Her Arms. . :
Rosa Bonheur loves the animals
she paints and is in turn adored by
them. She showed her recent pur
chase, a magnificent lion, who purred
and writhed like a gigantic cat when
his owner fearlessly stroked his
mighty ,- head. Then, showing the
head of a most superb specimen of
the African lion transferred to can
vas with startling realism, she tells
the story of Nero. He was her first
pet lion and was reputed untamably
ferocious and lived for several years
in the garden at By. At last one day
Rosa Bonheur was about to travel
and disposed of Nero to the Jardin
des Plantes. She parted with him
reluctantly, for he was a great pet
and would greet her , always with a
peculiar little note of welcome.
When she returned from her wan
derings, two years later, she went to
see Nero and beheld a sad sight.
The poor creature had not been so
carefully tended as he was used to be
at By.' Ophthalmia bad set in, and
the splendid brute lay blind and ail
ing, unheeding the curious crowd
that stared at him. Rosa Bonheur
watched him for a moment and then
called "Nero I" The effect was mag
ical. The lion rose to his feet, ut
tered his accustomed note of wel
come and sprang toward the well
loved voice with such impetuosity
that the shock against the bars sent
the sightless brute rolling, stunned,
back on the floor. The great artist
took him back, soothed his last days
with tendance and petting, and final
ly he died in her arms at the foot of
the staircase at By, his huge paws
clinging to his mistress, as if implor
ing her not to forsake him in his
death struggle, and his last move
ment being a feeble attempt to lick
the hands that held him with such
infinite tenderness. "You see," said
Rosa Bonheur as she meditatively
ruffled her new lion's mane, "to be
really beioved by wild beasts you
must really love them Paris Let

A Japanese Recipe.-
Fish is the chief article of diet of
the Japanese. Dried and salted it is,
with rice, the only food of the lower
classes. But every one, is fond of
fish, and there are a thousand ways
of dressing it daintily. Crabs are
killed by making them, swallow a
bumper of sake, which is probably
anything but pleasant to them, but
gives them a very delicate taste. The
spirit called shoyn, which is made of
the fermented juices of several dif
ferent kinds of grain, and which tastes
like Liebig's extract diluted with
brandy, seasons large fishes admir
ably, but generally the Japanese pre
fer to eat them raw, and they are not
altogether m the wrong. -
No hors d'oeuvre can beat that ob
tained from the following recipe:
"Take out the bones of a very fresh
dorado or sole ; cut the flesh into very
small pieces almost mince it, in fact ;
cut. into thin slices a few fresh gher
kins;' put in a pickle dish a series of
layers of chopped fish and gherkins;
add salt and pepper to each layer;
sprinkle over the whole a little vine
gar and the juice of a lemon; fet the
dish stand for a few hours before
serving." Try this recipe, and you
will see. Harper s Weekly.

How Bx-Congresgman Ranney Hid Himself
of a Troublesome Bedfellow.
. Ex-Congressman A, A. Ranney of
Massachusetts, who is accredited
with the leadership of the Boston
bar, gave evidence very early in life
of the strength of purpose which has
characterized his subsequent career.
' As a boy it was decreed by his stern
old father that he and an elder broth
er should occupy the same bedroom
and share the same bed. The future
congressman disliked this arrange
ment exceedingly, for the substantial
reason that his brother possessed a
constitutional tendency to kick the
person with whom he chanced to be
sleeping out of bed. On cold winter
nights young Ranney would.awaken
shivering, to find that his restless
bedfellow had acquired in the course
of an erratic slumber all the bed
clothes and was wrapped up in them
like an Indian papoose. ; The boy
bore this infliction uncomplainingly
for many weeks. Never a word said
he in the family circle of the kicks he
was obliged to submit to, or the cold
baths of freezing temperature which
roused him so often from pleasant
dreams. ' . . , - ,
One night, shortly after 12 strokes
had rung from the deep toned bell in
the tower of the Town . hall, the
household was awakened by a loud
hammering, which seemed to pro;
ceed from an upper room. Father
Ranney hurriedly donned his trousers
and taking a good, stout club for pro
tection stole up stairs to take the
thief unawares. The hammering
grew louder as he approached the
room occupied by his sons. He crept
softly to the door and listened. Bang
went the hammer again and yet
again, and with each stroke a heavy
nail seemed to have been driven f ur-
therhome. . . .
Ranney pere waited no longer, but
threw the door wide open. A strange
spectacle confronted him. His elder
son lay fast asleep and snoring on one
side of the bed. , On the opposite side
the future congressman was kneeling
on the floor, busily engaged in nail
ing the bedclothing to the sideboard
of the couch. , - ;
"What are you doing there?" roar
ed tne irate tamer. v ' ' i
"Why," replied this extraordinary
boy calmly, "I was just fixing these
bedclothes so that he couldn't kick
'em off, as he has been doing for the
last six weeks."
Then there was a scene, but the boy
did not lose his temper, although he
complied with his father s command
to remove the nails he had driven
into the bed. But it is worth noting
that shortly atterward he was given
a bed to himself .New York Herald.
The "Cruel Plant."
In one of the papers of the Cana
dian institute I find two excellent ar
ticles upon a species of cannibalistic
plant, known to the residents of the
tropical portions of America as the
cruel weed," or "strangler." The
scientific" name of this botanic oddi
ty is Physianthus albens, and it is in
digenous only to the western hemi
sphere. The flowers of this queer
plant are provided with five pairs of
jaws, which are so arranged as to
quickly close upon the proboscis or
head of any unsuspecting moth or
other insect which may attempt to
extract honey from the blossom.- To
make sure of its prey this cruel flow
er holds fast as long as the insect
struggles, slowly releasing its grasp
as soon as the writhings of the dying
creature cease. ..-..
According to the botanists, it be
longs to the milkweed family (tribe
or order of asclepiads). " The flowers
are pure white and very fragrant
and much like the tuberose in gener
al a ppearance. Those who may wish
to know more about this curiosity

Talkativeness and Divorce In Japan.
Mr. Hanniker : Heaton has been
gathering some very interesting mar
riage statistics concerning the cus
toms in vogue in different countries,
from which one reads with amuse
ment, and perhaps with a certain de
gree of amazement, that throughout
Japan a man may get a divorce if his
wife talks too much. Ordinary peo
ple may suppose that this harsh law
will have the effect of curbing lo
quacity, but it has not. Japanese la
dies are the most talkative of their
sex, and divorces are common among
them. In Thibet a woman is entitled
to three husbands. In Melbourne a
man may secure a divorce if his wife
gets drunk three times, or if she ha
bitually neglects her household du
ties. Pearl Oysters.
It has been found by Saville-Kent
that the pearl oyster reaches matu
rity in a shorter time than was for
merly supposed. He thinks that un
der favorable conditions a period not
exceeding three years suffices for the
shell to attain to the marketable size
of 8 or 9 inches in diameter, and that
the heavy shells of . five pound or six
pound weight per pair may be the
product of five years growth. Pub

Clever Devices and Bogus Circulars by

, , Swindled,
New Orleans, Lb., June 23, 1894. Since the
Louisiana State Lottery Company removed to

name of the Honduras National Lottery Com
pany, the patrons of this great concern have
been eager bait lor clever operators, and every
month thousands of people are taken In by lot
tery schemes which purport to be the original
Louisiana State Lottery.
The modus operandi is to send a bunch of tick
ets to some prominent person, inclosing a com-
Flimentary t.cket good for (8,000. The party is
ustructed to sell one-fifth of the ticket to s me
other well-known prominent person and keep
the other filth for himself. Another condition
is that the party must remit $100 in payment for
tickets, at least three days before tue '-drawing."

The Salary Too Small for Both.
"When L. Q. C. Lamar was made
secretary of the interior, nearly every
young man who had known him in Mis
sissippi went to Washington to get a
job," said H. F. Cole, of Water Valley,
Miss. "Among the number was John
Youngblood, editor of the Oxford Globe,
who called at Mr. Lamar's office on the
8th day of March, 1885. The secretary
was of coarse glad to see him. Young
blood had once been Mr. Lamar's pri
vate secretary. He expected something
big, but a clerkship only was tendered
him, and this he declined.
"Time wore on, and Youngblood, in
common parlance, 'went broke.' Could
his old friend, Mr. Lamar, let him have
fifty dollars? Mr. Lamar could and did.
Two weeks more, could his old friend,
Colonel Lamar, let him have a hundred
while he was : waiting to be placed?
Again Mr. Lamar could and did. A
month rolled by. Youngblood's board
bill was due. , He had to live while wait
ing, and he knew no one else in Wash
ington except his old friend from Ox
ford. His board bill was settled. The
next day he called again and wanted to
be accommodated. He was.
"After Youngblood went out Mr.
Lamar turned to Colonel Muldrow, his
assistant, and said: 'See here, Henry,
Youngblood has got to get away from
Washington. Find some place for him.
Both of us can't live on $8,000 a year.'
"The next morning Youngblood was
made superintendent of the Arizona
schools and was sent to Yuma, where he
later died." St. Louis Repnblic.
