THE SU3I21EB GIRL.
Thc Summer Oiri is coming home,
All browned, and plump and jroy,
Prepared to make the winter seem
Extrcfnely nice and easy.
She"? b:thed, aad daneed, and walked, and
A nd read a book, and flirted.
-Till to the younsr nin she has left
The whole Trorjd seems deserted.
The flush of health is on her cheeks,
Wish fun her eyes are dancing;
Th flush of conquest in her heart
Makes life seem most eutraneiug.
Ah, soon she'll be thcWinter Girl,
And vre-ehall bow before her;
For she was made to be adored,
Aiidf therefore, we adore her.

Siyras of ;t Mild Winter.
There wre alreadv
signs ot a jnil-ji winter hereabouts.
Snipe, the tellers in the congress of
weather birds, have been Keen to fly
South. Swallows stayed North three
weeks after their regular time to leave,
and that is regarded as another sign of
an open winter. Robins are still lin
gering north of the Potomac, and
would have flown South 10 days ago,
the weather sharps declare, if they
hadn't felt in suclrbones as they are
possessed of that we are going to have
a late fall and a warm winter. A
woodcock shot in Pennslvania last
week had only a few feathers on it, audi
that's another sure sign of mild weath
er. oo mueii ur me onus.
r-t i a I i J
A coon trapped in a cornfield the
other night was as poor as a crow, and
that is held to mean that the weather
will be so mild that he will be able to
be out every day, instead of having to
hibernate, as was the case last winter.
At this time last year the coons were
as fat as pigs, and they lived on the
fat while they were cooped up in the
hollow trees on account of the biting
weather. This winter the coons won't
have to lie dormant, and bears will
roam over the scrub oak ridges from
Christmas to Eater. The fur of
woodchuck is much thinner than
usual, and that is 'a Mire indication of
.til open winter.
Moreover, rattlesnakes are crawling
in the hueklebeny patches as lively as
they were in midsummer, and that is
auot her sign of midwinter mildness.
Blackstiakes are as numerous as they
were two months ago. L ist year they
took orouipllv to their dens on the
1st of September. The testimony of
the animals and the reptiles ape:irs to
be complementary to that of the birds

of them said: "Here are three nation

Great Briton, the sun that gi yes light
to the nations of the earth.'
The Frenchman was rather taken
aback at this, but he proposed, "Here's
to France, the moon whose magic rays
move the tides of the world."
Franklin then rose and with the air
of quaint modesty, said, HeP5s to

"I was present at the autopsy of a

said a friend of mine the other day,
"and I was started and shocked nt
what I saw. The dead man was about
60 years old had been the town drunk
ard for 40 years. The doctors had sur
mised that when they cut his head
open a pronounced smell of alcohol
would issue from the skuil. I thought
it only one of those grim sort of jokes
that iEculaoluns indulge in some
times when they are carving a f el low--man
to mince meat in the iuterest of
"Hut I -soon learned that it was no
joke, for when the surgeon's paw had
cut off the top of the man's skull the
odor ofj the alcohol that tilled the
room was strong enough to almost
sicken one. Then one of the surgeons
struck a match and held it close to
he brain. Immediately a blue flame
enveloped-the entire portion of the
cerebral organ exposed, and the quiv
ering flesh sizzled as if on a grindiron.
that experiment and disclosure set me
to very seriously thinking about the
error of my way.
I am not a temperance lecturer nor
a prohibition politician, but I must
most respectfully and firmly decline
