When first we parted.
The barren fields lay bare beneath the sun.
And crimson leaves dropped downward ona
by oue:
The heart of nature bled, that now was done
Her labor sweet.
Iler pulses beat
Slowly as tear drops fall from aged eyes,
For all the poor dead blossoms at her feet
No more would rise:
Yet gray clouds held for us a rosy dye:
Love smiled through pain on love in that

Effect» of the Space System.
When next we met,
The summer fields were green with hope's
warm tints.
The waves were shining with the golden dints
That sunbeams make, when on foam crests
each glints
In showered gold:
And wide unrolled
The carpet, flower decked, by nature spread.
And silver arrows held with azure thread
Glanced o’er the sea:
But all was gray and cold, fair love was dead.
And spring a frozen waste to you and me.

Girls and the Violin.
The world will hear something of woman
in art before the Twentieth century comes in.
I have been listening to a singular con­
cert, improvised by the damsels who car­
ried off the prizes for violin playing this au­
tumn at the Conservatoire. There were eight
of them. The flower of the flock wm
a chit of fifteen. Paganini never bad a
more accoin polished disciple. She looks
a mere gamin. All of them acquitted
themselves brilliantly. Is it not curious
that girls wore so long in finding out how
well the violin suits them? If they have
talent and good figures, they are, as violinists,
simply irresistible. The outline of the bust,
when the fiddle is against the shoulder, is
given its fullest value; the forearm emerges
from a nest of lace, the head gracefully bends
down towards the instrument, and, if the
frock is not very long, the feet, which of
course are in neat shoes and stockings, uro
well in view. The drawbacks are that the
violin wants an accompaniment and that
girlish beauty is fleeting. Very ripe beauty
does not go so well with the instrument. But
skill and soul in the playing will make
amends.—English Journalist.
Exactness In Commercial Statistics.
Space writing makes uewspajier work a
vast gamble; there is always the alluriDg
vision of a “big story” to-morrow, which
justifies the extravagant expenditure of
today. There is nothiug more calculated to
demoralize a man thuu a constantly varying
income. It is all very well for moralists to
claim that the worker should calculate upon
the miuimum, it Is uot in human nature to
do so. The cases where a space worker man­
ages to save any money are very rare, while
the salaried man, whose weekly pay may not
be so large as the average of the space worker,
in nine cases out of ten has a snug t>ank ac­
count. Besides demoralizing the men, the
space system directly injures the paj»ers them­
selves. A salaried man has very little tempta­
tion to enlarge upon the facts, his effort is not
to make a long story in order to lengthen his
string, but only to make a g<xxl one, that he
may strengthen his hold upon the paper. The
salaried man is rarely a “fakir,” the space
worker has every temptation to be. Of the
padded stories and sloppy writing which the
space system encourages, there is no need to
speak; we have to suffer more and more from
it every day.
The vast injustice of the space system is
that it makes no distinction as to quality,
but only regañís quantity. One result is
that every live newspaper has each duy pre-
Ifared as much again copy as can bo used,
and in every office one or more men ave em­
ployed for the sole purpose of destroying the
labor of other men. For obvious reasons it is
almost impossible for a man in tho office to
understand thoroughly every 6tory which
passes under his blue pencil, and as a uutural
result “ copy chopping ” is rarely done very
judiciously. Again, there is very little in­
ducement for a man to make a story good,
unless at the same time he can make it long.
A column ¡3 a column whether it be brilliant
or dull.
If, as many editors claim, it is impractica­
ble to do away with the space system, signa­
ture could be brought in with good effect to
modify it and lessen its injustice. If the
copy reader was empowered to attach the
signature of the writer to a meritorious
article, it would furnish an inducement for
better writing and more accurate work. It
would enable a conscientious man to build up
u reputation for himself outside of the paper
on which ho is employed. It would Ite, at
least, a recognition of good work. There aro
very few men who would be willing to see
their signatures [appended to statements
which they know to be false or to writing
which they know to be sloppy. The benefit
would be mutual to the paper and the writer.

There were no idols, their gods being invisi­

the early times were principally a lout wo­

Mv.terlou. Herb, by Which They Cure
Formidable DUease» iu Mexico.
Without doubt men of a money making
turn might, with perseverance, acquire from
the Indians knowledge of the mysterious
herbs with which they cure, radically, some
of those formula! le diseases which buffi© the
greatest physicians of the world. From
Chiajtas and Tabasco up to Sonora and Chi­
huahua, the Indians make good use of the
herbs of the field and forest. The Indians
who live around the little hill called the
Fenol, near this city, can cure intermittent
fevers much more eusily than our physicians,
and, iu the state of Queretaro, the Indians
have a remedy, known only to themselves,
and the secret of which they most jealously
guard, which cures the worst forms of blood
diseases, as many foreigners here can testify.
Bo cunning are these Indians that they
employ, as 1 am told, a medicine which has
the property of puralyzing temporarily the
sense of taste, and thus their ¡tatients can
get no clew to the nature of the herbs they
are taking. Malaria yields quickly to the
poworful remedies of the Indians, and these
same rude practitioners will cure bad cases
of typhus fever. In the treatment of the
smallpox tho Indians are very successful,
placing their patients in dark rooms, but
¡lermitting currents of air to be continually
¡Missing over the body of the patient, while
some herbal remedy is continually adminis­
tered. That the Indians of the country
towns and of the little hamlets up in ths
Sierras are healthy is plainly to bo seen.
They live often to an incredible age, and
say themselves that the white man is a sickly
fellow who has gray hair while their own is
still coal black.
A recent patient of tho Queretaro Indians
said the remedy administered to him by the
Indians Beemed to take hold of him in every
part of his body, and that for twenty days
he was kept .covered up and sweating pro­
fusely. It seemed to him that they were
getting his blood “washed out” and every
organ of his body cleansed. At. the end of
the prescribed time he was told that he was
cured, and so found himself beyond any
doubt. Many of the herbs used by the In­
dians are declared by them to be of great
value owing to their scarcity, and it is cer­
tain that they cherish them and will not
part with them for a song. Even educated
physicians here employ remedies not known
in the United States. The homoeopaths use
the poison of certain venomous snakes and
the active principle of poisonous native
plants. It is possible that science will yet
make good use of the weed with which In­
dian poisoners take away tho wits of their
enemies. A little of this powder in your
roup, and away goes your intellect and rea­
son. On the principle that “like cures like”
it may be that in this baleful weed there is
u remedy for some forms of insanity, for we
know very well that the treatment of brain
trouble is in its infancy, so to say.—Mexico
Cor. Boston Herald.
Temptations of the Teller.
The big banks down town with which ex­
tensive brokers and merchants deal do an
enormous amount of business every day. A
great deal of this business is by checks and
drafts and the balances to be paid to settle
the debits and credits are fixed every morning
at the clearing house. But with all the checks
and drafts, the paying tellers in these banks
handle fortunes in cash every day that they
are at their windows attending to business.
Aside from the amounts which they pay out
between 10 and 3 o’clock, there is always
a large cash fund held in reserve for contin­
gencies that may arise suddenly and unex­
pectedly. It is nothing extraordinary for a
¡laying teller to handle from $1,000,000 to
$2,(XX),(XX) of cash in a day.
When the doors of the bank closed the
paying teller counts his cash to see that the
amount on hand corresponds with the
amount called for by the books. He puts
his cash balance in the vault and quits work
until next morning. From the time he
leaves the bank until the hour for him to
reappear no one of the officers of the bunk
knows where he is. He may, in fact, stay
away a couple of days on the plea of illness,
and if, as is usually the case, he has the con­
fidence of his superiors, his absence arouses
no suspicions.
Express trains leave for Montreal at 7 and
11:15 every evening. A paying teller can
put a million dollars in greenbacks in his
pockets, walk out of his bank when the busi­
ness of the day is over, and be in Montreal
before he or the money is missed.
Paying tellers are considered well paid
when they gets salary of $3,500 a year. They
know that their chance of becoming cashier
or president is very slim, and that the prob­
abilities are they will go to the grave paying
tellers, or elso be bounced because of old age,
or because a change in the officers or board
of directors has brought into power some
rich and influential man wit)’ a poor rela­
tive whom he wants to support without cost
to himself.
Consider for a moment the terrible temptar
tions some of these tellers suffer. They see
men making money by methods which are
neither exactly dishonest nor exactly fair,
and that nobody inter feres with them. They
also see and feel enough money day after day
to make them so independent of work that
they could live on the fat of the land while
life lasts and not turn a hand.—New York
Cor. New Orleans Picayune.
