It is not a little curious that while
excavations have been made in nearly
every part of Greece for archaeological
researches no examination of the
ground immediately around and upon
the Acropolis of Athens has been made
until this year. Excavations have been
begun there which have already dis­
closed • building belonging probably
to the epoch of Pericles, though its
identity has not yet been established,
and about which were discovered a
great quantity of objects in bronze,
marble and terra cotta. These are gen­
erally fragments only, some of them
mere scraps, though there are a few
nearly complete figures and one ortwo
vase- quite whole. There are also a
number of inscriptions on fragments
of columns and on ornamental slabs of
marble. The whole lot looks as if re­
fuse from a demolished temple of earlv
date might have been deposited here
by way of tilling up a hollow place.
All the pieces of statues are of a very
early time; some are quite rude inform
and of clumsy workmanship, of no
graat interest, except as supplying ex­
amples of early Greek art. There are,
however, a few pieces of great interest
in themselves. Gne fragment of an
archaic female figure, with drapery,
which is richly painted, is preserved
with remarkable distinctness. The
drapery is painted red, green and white,
with a drak brown border, which is
ent into small squares and circles.
Another well preserved female figure
well illustrates the Greek costume of
the early periods. The hair is arranged
in unbroken waves about the forehead,
combed back behind the ears and fiills
in long curls about the shoulders. She
wears three garments; over a fine
woolen chiton, visible only at the
breast, is thrown the himation, fastened
lightly at the right shoulder and passed
under the left arm; it reaches to her
feet and over it is a short shawl-like
mantle. The chiton is red. the girdle
green and the himation has stripes of
green and dark red.
An interesting historical find has re­
cently been made in Venice, where,
near the Venice theater, was dug up a
metal box containing a great quantity
of coins, many of which are believed
to be quite unique. They belong to the
Latin princedoms which sprang up in
Greece about the time of the earlier
crusades. The coins i-idicatein fact the
titles of the Princes of Achaia and the
Dukes of Athens, and it is hoped that
much light may be shed by them upon
some very obscure passage of history,
but there vet remains much to be done
for their proper decipherment since
many of the coins are crushed and
massed together so closely that it is a
difficult matter to separate them.
Longfellow’s BoyHli Production and First
Encounter with a Critic.
An orator may feel a sense of satis­
faction in the oration which makes him
the voice of a nation, but his success
does not thrill him as did the declama­
tion when he was a boy which first
made him the hero of the little red
school house at the cross-roads. Even
the poet's latest volume, though the
publisher announces its tenth edition,
does not so stir his soul as did the sight
of his first poem in the country news­
Tiie poet Longfellow had this thrill­
ing experience in his thirteenth year.
Near the farm of his maternal grand­
father there was a small lake, known
as Lovell’s Pond. It was the scene of
a famous event in New England history,
“Lovell’s Fight” with the Indians. The
story made such a deep impression on
the boy’s imagination that ho wrote a
iioem of four stanzas entitled, “The
tattle of Lovell’s Pond.”
With a trembling heart he ran down
to the printing-office where the Port­
land Gazette was published, and dropped
the manuscript into the letter-box. The
evening on which the paper was
printed he went again, and stood
shivering while watching the working
of the press, and wondering if his poem
would appear the next morning
His sister »tiared his confit lenee, and
they watched their father when he
picked up the paper and dried it before
the wood fire. He read it slowly, laid
it aside, and said nothing. They picked
it up, and lo! the poem was there in
the poet’s corner.
The delighted boy read it over and
over, again and again, and each time
he felt the thrill of pleasure intensified.
In the evening he went to visit his
friend Frederick, the son of Judge
Mellon, his father'« intimate friend.
The conversation turned upon poetry,
and the judge, taking up the morning’«
Gazette, asked:
“Did you see the piece in to day’s
paper? Very stiff; remarkably stiff
Moreover, it is all borrowed; every
word of it.”
It was the boy’s first encounter with
a “critic,” and that night his pillow
was sprinkled with tears. The judge
was correct in his criticism: but poor
as were the verses, they gave the boy
his first sensation of the pleasure of
seeing oneself in print. — Youth's Com­

Words of Wisdom Spokon for the Benefit
of Summer Boarders.
City folks who go into the country
to board on a farm during a part of the
heated term will save themselves con­
siderable trouble and some remorse by
taking these brief and hastily*evolved
hints at their face value:
Don't expect the earth; you can have
only a very small part of it for six dol­
lars per week.
Don’t < xpect a view from your win­
dow that takes in a green hillside with
browsing lambs, a lake with water­
fowl, groves and flowers and a clear
sunset every day during your stay.
These things come high, save in adver­
tisements for summer boarders. Look
out upon the patient farm-boy bugging
the potato-vines and be content.
Don’t ask the farmer why he puts
his little peaches near the bottom of •
the basket and the big ones on top, and
similar foolish questions, and thus dis­
play your total ignorance of agricul­
tural and horticultural pursuits, and
win the farmer’s honest and hearty
Don’t go near the mowing-machine
when it is in motion. You may safely
sit on the fence surrounding the field
in which it is singing its merry song,
but that will be near enough. You
might got behind a mowing-machine
when it is in complete repose, but if it
should start, you should start also, and
you should not stop until you reach the
Don't monkey with the straw-cutter,
or try to climb over the barbed-wire
fence, just to show the congregation
how smart you are. Jt requires long
practice to climb a barbed-wire fence
and not be sorry for it afterwards.
In busy times you may take off your
coat and go out with the hands for
half-a-day, just to give yourself an
appetite. That will please the farmer,
notwithstanding your increased appe­
tite; but don't get into the habit of that
sort of thing.
Evince an interest in live-stock, but
don't say you would like to learn to
milk a cow You might, in this way,
greatly please the farmer and his wife;
but the cow would probably kick you
in the stomach, or the fence-corner, at
the first motion, and you would have
to buy a new milk-pail.
Praise the apple dumplings: say the
farm is the best kept you ever saw; kiss
the baby and pet the dog; and thus
make votirself solid with the whole
family at the very outset.
If you go walking in the woods and
see a large hornets' next hanging from
a low limb, don't become infatuated
with it. If a desire to pull it and take
it home to show it to the other board­
ers springs up in your bosom, try to
repress it. Hornets are a little par­
ticular. and do not like to have their
nest shown around among curiqus city
people while they are using it, and if
you pull their nest while they are at
home they will show their disappro­
bation of vour course
