I climbed the bill one wintry tlay,
And mused my mcditalire way,
And lust in various thought profound,
Oblivious to all around,
1 heard a shout ring loud and clear
And unite in terror on my ear.
A shout that filled me with dismay.
''Hi! Mister, there! (iet out the wa) !"
1 looked und saw there in my road
A double-runner with its load
Of pontine laughing, booting boys
A solid freight of aolid noise.
"HI! Mister, there! (iet out the way!"
A most undiplomatic brsy,
A bold eominand without the stress
Of any cortcous finesse.
1 did not tnnkc a long delay
Wul I well, 1 ''pot out tbe way.''
My tiri-t thought was not one of pence,
Hut one of vengeance and police;
Jiut then those boys, I thought aain,
Are like all olber sons of men,
All mount their sleds and about each dtiy,
"HI! Mister, there! (iet out tbe way!''
"Wo have ainhltioiia shod with steel,
Too swift to see, too bird to feci.
Wc mount tbein in the hope to glide
I low n destiny's steep mountain side.
And liehtnintMsw ift through frosty gleams
Dart these fast runners of our dreams,
And loud wc shout, a rau.'ous bray,
'Hi! Mister tberel (iet out tbe way '
We do nut turn our coasters baek
Kut warn all people oil' the track,
We claim an unimpeded slope
I 'own till the highways of our hope.
Ho, that our double-runners glide;
l et other men find room one side;
And tbey can stand there in the snow
And have tbe fun to sec us so.
And so wc shout day after day.
"Hi! Mister, there! (iet out tbe way !"
And so I stood there in tbe snow
And watched the boys glide far below.
And swift my thoughts were thoughts of

"A ludy wishes to sco you, sir,"
mid tlio staid hum servant to Dr. Hail.
It was past 10 at night, and the physi
cian looked up in some surprise.
"Show the lady in, please," ho said,
and rose as u slim young flgurcjglidcd
into the room. Her face was covered
with a veil; her garments were black.
Hie came forward quickly.
You are Dr. Hall?" alio mid.
"Yes, I nm. May 1 ask "
"1 will not keep you many min

"Yel it is," said the doctor, gently.
"My inline is Dorothy Clifford,''
said '.ho girl. A fhish swept over her
cheek us the doctor gave a littlo start.
"You know my name?'' she faltered.
From my patient,"' said Dr. Hall;
'nothing ho has told me simply tlio
ii a in he has repeated unconsciously.''
"Then perhaps you guess," alio said
in low voice. "I am that Dorothy lie
peaks of. A your ago wo were lovers
engaged. " 1 thought I had reason to
Accuse hi in of unfaiih. Wo parted.'
"All," said the doctor, "I knew
there was some cause for this break
down besides tho frightful hardships
lie has been through in America. Do
you wunt mo to let you see him?''
"No no I I want you to toll me
if he must die if it Is true that there
is but one chance for him if I can
givo him that chancel it was all my
fault, doctor! Ho was true; it was
my madness that parted us. You
must let mo atone give my life for

"Do you know what his one chance
Is?" said the doctor, gravely. "A

"My poor child," said tho physi
cian, i: deep pity, "he wi!l know
nothing lie is almost unconscious
but I have doubts about this"
The doctor slightly shook hit head
lie did not think bis putiout was a man
likely to mend a broken 1 i I'o in that
easy fashion. Hut he heard all the
girl had to urge and questioned hor In
his turn. The girl pleaded frantically
with sobs and tears, and at last Dr.
The patient himself knew nothing
about it; he lay in the lethargy that
precedes death and was only faintly
conscious at intervals. There was
very little chance that he would be
awiu-o of Dorothy' presence in his
room. Indeed, when she entered it
she stood by his side for a full minute
without his stirring. Tho girl her
self seemed scarcely to feel at nil.
lt:fore her, senseless, dying, lay the
man sho had loved passionately
through all her angry mistrust and
injustice; yet never a quiver came
over her beautiful face.
She went through the painful opor
ation without a niunmu nay, with
an exultant smile. F.ach drop of her
blood transfused into the veins of the
dying man was so much towards
"Still living," was the doctor's re
port to Dorothy the next day; and he
wont back to Dcvrcaux, at whose side
he almost lived. The woman, healthy,
vigorous, recovered rapidly; the man,
w ho, besides anguish of soul, had en
dured enough cold and famine to
shatter a less line constitution, strug"
gled painfully with death, though he
did not care for life.
Then lito conquered. "Hut after
all siho has done him a cruel kinduess,"
thought the physician. "What has
life to give him? '
So wc are not going to lose you

the young 111 in's bedside one morn
ing. Devercux' only answer to this
prouiiso of life was to look up in the
kind face with eyes full of pain.
Don't you euro to live?" said the
Dcvcrcux silently turned his eyes
away. They wandered over the room
as if thoy sought something. An odd
feeling crept into the doctor' heart.
"What is it you want or is it that
you miss something?'' he said.
"Nothing," Devercux murmured;
but constantly the doctor delected that
searching, wistful glance. lie began
to understand. Tho young man grow
stronger in spito of his apathy the
physical need of lifo triumphed, and
onfj day ho began to ask questions:
What had ho talked about when he
wui delirious? Who had been with
Iti its only the doctor and tho nurse?
"No one else, and wo don't notice
sick people's chatter," aid Dr Hall,
"I thought there was gomo one
else," said Devercux, with a sigli;
"perhaps it was n dream.''
"I dare say. Who did you dream
"Sho was here I felt her. 1 don't
think it was a dream. Doctor," lift
ing himself and looking eager, "you

"Hush!" said tlio doctor, soothing,

"She will not aoinc," Devereux
"She will 1 know the whole story ;
never mind how. 1 Will send for

You are puzz'ed. Well, sleep now if
you can I will wake you when 1
Devereux, too weak or anything but

left i he house and drove rapidly to
Dorothy Clill'ord. She I bought he had

"Ho goes on slowly but well," said
Dr. Hall. "1 have conio to fetch you

quivering. "Impossible I You have

You must come," said tlio doctor,
sternly. "I havo told him nothing

Two Sorts of .Men May Laugh Well.
A prominent Wall street bankcrand
bic ker, who is reputed to be worth
about ten million', walked from his
private otlicc the other morning into
the outer room, where was gathered a
number of his friouds and customers,
lie was laughing so heertily that his
cheeks were highly flushed, and the
merry peals echoed and rc-cchood
through tho room. Everybody turned
to look at him, and every other face
but one wore a sympathetic smile.
The single exception looked very
grave, and watched the merry broker
witli inteiitness. When the banker's
laughter had ceased he wont back into
his otlicc, and the grave man said to a
Ho laughs heartily, docs ho not?
Yes, it is easy for him to laugh,
whereas it is very bard for many
others. There are two kinds of men
who thoroughly understand and ap
preciate laughter, in whom this ex
pression of merriment is spontaneous,
light-hearted, and without, a tingo of
tlio sarcastic or bitter. Duo kind is
the rich, successful men who arc bo
yond ordinary cares and harassment,
and havo learned to enjoy the power
of wealth. They can turn from any
i oyuiico or grief to tlio contempla
tion of their success and be happy.
The other kind includes those rare be
ings who a ro poor and don't attempt
to got rich. The plantation negro is
a type of this class, and occasionally
one encounters a wliito man who is
imbued witli the spirit of tho proverb,
As we journey through life, let us
live by the way.' Hut I must say the
rich man's laughter sounds much more
musical in my ears. The poor man's
contains a littlo doliauco and reckless
i.es., no matter how sincero it is. It
seems lo say, 'Well, what of it? I'm
poor, but who cares?' The rich man'
merriment, on tlio contrary, is frco
from anything objectionable. It car
ries with it an intimation or power,
nod if thcro is a suggestion of surfeit
in it, is that an objection? Who would
not like to drink so deep from the
cup of pleasure as to mako plqasuro
lose its novelty? Wouldn't wo all
like to try I think so. I only ask
that I may laugh like tho rich man,
secure that my merriment today will
not be soured by revcrsos tomorrow."

No More Object Inusi Were Mnile.
A laughable story is told about town
concerning A- 11. Hummel, tho crimi

knows that Mr. Huininel is not above

Mr. Dittcnhoefer slowly arose aud
replied as follows:

of avoirdupois, and it requires some
exertion for mo to move. I am not

Iu a special ornithological bulletin
of the l.'nitod States National Mtscum
occurs the following account of tho
dance of the prairie sharp tailed
grouse of Manilobn, quoted from the
unpublished notes of K. E. Thomp
After the disappearance of the snow
and the coining of warm woather the
chickens meet every morning at gray
dawn, in companies from six to
twenty, on some selected hillock or
knoll, and indulge in what is called
a "dance." This performance I havo
I often watched and it presents the
most amusing spectacle
I have vet
witnessed in bird life.
At first the birds may be seen stand
ing about iu ordinary attitudes, when
suddenly one of them lowers its head,
spreads out Its wing nearly horizon
tally and its tail perpendicularly, dis
tends its air sacs and erects its feath
ers, then rushes across the "floor,"
taking the shortest of steps, but stamp
ing its feet so hard and rapidly that
the sound is like that of a kettledrum;
nt tho same lime it utters a sort of
bubbling crow which seems to come
from the air sac, beats the air with
its wings and vibrates ils tail, so that
it produces a loud, rustling noise, and
thus contrives at once to make as ex
traordinary spectacle of itself as pos
sible. As soon as one commences, all join
in, ratiling, stamping, jumping, crow
ing and darning together furiously;
loudor and louder lbs noise, fasti i
aud faster the dance becomes, until nt
last as tbey madly whirl about, the
birds leap over each other in their ex
citement. After a brief spell tin' en
ergy of the dancers begins to abate,
and shortly afterward they stand oi
movo about very quietly until they a.e
again started by ono of their number
An Interesting Exhibit at the
Serio3 of Croups Prepared by
the National Museum.
(no of i ho most picturesque features
of the exhibit of the National Miiscinii
at the woild's fair in Chicago will bo
a scries of groups of odd sorts of
birds. These have been prepared by
Dr. Kobeit Itidgway.
The crocodile bird, for example, is
illustrated by an actual crocodile about
eight feet long, stut.'ed in a life-like
manner, with its mouth wido open,
while along its back are walking two
or three birds of this curious species.
One of the latter is standing inside the
mouth of the saurian, pecking para
site from tho reptile's tongue. This
is the kindly office which the bird per
forins for tho crocodile, at ihc same
time procuring food for itself and
relieving its reptilian friend of annoy
ance. So far as naturalists are aware,
the ;atter never returns this kindness
with tho ingratitude of gobbling its
I Another group shows a pair of
i bower birds disporting themselves
about their play house. I'ttrcly for
the sake of amuscniciil thnsc quaint
! fca'licrcd creatures arc accustomed to
I build covered structures of twigs and
j oilier materials, iu and about which
they scatter every bright and pretty
object they can find, such os shells.
! Furthermore, they hang garlands of
; flowers in front of their play houses
j and, when these aro faded, they pro.
I cure fresh onos. Il is eveu said thai
: they plant seeds, which sprout and
1 add to the decorative effect.
Not less remarkable than ihe bower
i birds aro tho butcher bird? a small
shriko that is widely distributed in
j this country. These birds capture
small animals of various torts and dc-
' liberatuly impale them upon thorns, j
j presumably for subsequent hso as j
! food. In parts of tlio west where j
j there arc barbed-wire fences they use
j tlio wire point instead of thorns for
' impnliiig their victims upon. This
group shows a pair of butcher birds in
j a bush, witli grasshoppers, mice and a
i little bird stuck on t horns here and
Otio of tho most interesting groups
exhibits a pair of woodpeckers of an
interesting species. They arc engaged
iu inserting acorns into holes in a
tree trunk. In summer, when food
is plentiful, these birds devote their
time to making a great number of
holes iu the bulk of trees. When the
acorns fall in the autumn I hoy gather
them and put ono into each of the
holes they havo made. Thus they
prorido tliemselve- with a supply of
provender for the winter. Otliorw isc,
when snow covers tlio ground, they
would be likely to st u vc.
Other groups show a number of
prairie chickens engaged iu their love
lnaking dance, flamingoes with their
curious nests of mud, a hollow slump
with parroquels hanging inside by
their bills, which is their manner of
roosting, and wild pigeons, which are
interesting because they aro threat
ened witli extinction.
One group that was prepared for
Chicago will not bo sent thero because
it is too horrible. It represents the
sheep-eating parrot of New Zealand
attacking a shoep. This bird was not
originally carniverous, but is supposed
to have acquired a taste for mutton
during a very cold winter, when, for
j uick e i oiuci iuuh, n u.s,nini inc
cusses of killed sheep. Subsequently
it took to preying upon the livo ani
mals, clinging to their wool and actu
ally eating its way through the llosh
to the kidneys, of l he tal surrounding
which it i especially fond. The poor
sheep, unable to defend itself against
its winged foe or to escape, eventually
succumbs. Fortunately, this parrot
has been nearly exterminated in New
Zealand by the sheep farmers.
Bahy Ruth's Silver Spoon.
Mrs. Mary O. Arnold of Norwich,
N. V., received a letter from (.rover
Cleveland a few days ago, iu which
he wrote that Kuth was very proud of
tho silver spoon that Mrs. Arnold has
sen. her. That spoon has a history.
Grover's great-grand father, the Uev.
Aaro.i Cleveland, dwelt iu Norwich
Town. His son, Deacon Cleveland,
was a silversmith aL curious, ancient
and tranquil ltcan Hill, a mile north
of the old town. The square, brown,
two-stry house iu which he lived is
still standing under tall elm-, whose
branches sweep its roofs, al the south

street is a funny-looking littlo bouse,
with peaked gables. "Adams' Tav

Southern Forests Disappearing.
Charles Mohu, ot the Cuiied States
Forest, y Bureau, writes in the En
gineering Maga.iue: "The facts di.-
c'oscd by the investigation of our
Southern pine forests, and the man
agement of their timber resources,
cannot but lend to ihe conviction that
wc have already entered upon an era
involving their complete extinction.
Stupendous as these resources appear,
as illustrated by figures quoted in this
paper, any doubt about their depletion
within a comparatively brief period
will be removed if, on tin: other band,
those figures are considered which
i elate to the ever-increasing draft on
ihe forests. No ono is more aware of
i be inevitable result of the presen1
treatment of these forests than :l.c
actively cng'iged in reaping the bar-ve-t
of timber, to mature which nature
required ceniurit s of time.
Theio is no need to dwelt here on
i ho calamities width would follow
the extinction of the industrial and
commercial interests connected with
the forests, upon which s0 many
thousands of people are dependent
for their existence, or to contemplate
the evil consequences of the destruc
tion of the high forest, over largo
areas, in affecting existing conditions
of climate aud soil. These themes
I avc become truisms, which iu our
day can escape no one taking an active
interest in afl'air afl'ecting our mate
rial welfare. Still, with all tbe light
atlorded by science and the teachings
of national economy, there exists a
popular disregard to matters pertain
ing to foicsiry, and little headway
lias been made iu the attempt, through
statu action or otherwise, to secure to
posterity some of the advantages of
ihe forest wealth now enjoyed in this
country and considered so indespeusa
blc lo our prosperity.''

aud rather startling system of sub- ;
murine signalling, lie believes that I
ihe difficulties in the way of such a j
system aro quite surmountable. Tho
principle on which the proposed iu- ,

one of the bc't media for the Han--
