Plant a Tree. He who plants a tree Plants a hope. Rootlets up through fibers blindly grope, Leaves unfold into horizons free. So man's life must climb From the clods of time Unto heavens sublime. Canst thou prophesy, thou little tree. What the glory of thy boughs shall be? He who plants a tree Plants a joy; Plants a comfort that will never cloy; Every day a fresh realltv, Beautiful and strong. To whose shelter throng Creatures blithe with song. If thou couldst but know, thou happy tree, Of the bliss that shall inhabit thee! He who plants a tree, He plants peace. Under its green curtain jargons cease, Leaf and zephyr murmur soothingly. Shadows soft with sleep Down tired eyelids, creap, Balm of slumber deep. Never hast thou dreamed, thou bleSßed tree, Of the benediction thou shalt be. He who plants a tree, He plants youth: Vigor won for centuries, in sooth; Life of time, thst hints eternity! toughs their strength uprear, New shootß every year On old growths appear. Thou shalt teach th...

2 THE TALENT DOWNED By Larghetto Who Wins the Second Race. A Good Day Spent at the Race * Track. Detailed Account of the Various Contests. Bulky and Saddle—A Close Finish—ln teresting Details—Exciting Scenes. The racing at the Agricultural Park yesterday, with the exception of one event, proved a good deal more interest ing than the card seemed to promise, the majority of the contests being well contested and exciting. There was no appreciable difference in the number of spectators, as compared with that of the preceding day; and the sun having dis pelled all uncertainty as to the prospects of a shower, there were almost as many carriages hitched to the inside rail as on the opening day. As on Tuesday three out of the four favorites carried off the honors and the betting fraternity had little to complain of on that scale. The victory of Larghetto in the second race was a severe blow to the talent, wiio were about equally divided in opinion as to the chances of his two opponents, and...

CHAUTAUQUA CHAT. Yesterday's Lectures and Out Door Sports. Milton and Tennyson the Sub jects of Study. An Interesting day at the Seaside School. The Tennis Tournament—The Results of the Contests—Notes and Personals. Yesterday morning Col. Homer B. Sprague delivered his lecture on Para dine LuM. It was a synoptical view of the great poem from an unusual stand point. Milton, like Homer and Virgil, plunges in medial res, into the midst of his narration, relating afterwards, by way of episode the events that had gone before. Dr. Sprague began at the chrono logical beginning, and related the events in their order as described in the poem. In this way he gaveacleaver view of the succession and made a continuous nar rative. The lecture was beautifully illustrated with colored diagrams,(show ing the successive stages in creation, These views are original with Dr. Sprague, who has made a close study of Milton's cosmogony, and has corrected a number of important errors in Mas son's statement ...

6 A Sermon in Rhyme. If you have a friend worth loving. Love him, Yes, and let him know That you love him, ere lit'e's%veniug Tinge his brow with sunset glow. Why should good words ne'er be said Of a friend—till he is dead." If you hear a song that thrills you, Seng by any child of song, Praise it. Do not let the singer Wait deserving praises long, why should one who thrills your heart Lack the joy you may impart.' If you hear a prayer that moves you, By its humble, pleading tone, Join it. Do not let the seeker Bow before his Uod alone. Why should not your brother share The strength of "two or three iv prayer?" If you see thehot 'ears falling From a brother's weeping eyes. Share them. And by kindly sharing, Own your kinship with the skies. Why should anyone be glad When a brother's heart is sad .' If a silvery laugh goes rippling Through the sunshine on his face, Share It. 'Tis the wise man's saying— For both grief and Joy a place. There's health anil goodness in the mirth In which ...

PERSONAL AND PERTINENT. No surplus does not seem to work well in the Argentine Republic. . The returns from various political centres indicate that the Presidential bee is the genuine "busy bee." It was feared that in his reply to X. M. C. Mr. Reed in his efforts to X. L. would be driven to X. S. Fortunately he made a fair N trance and a safe X it. The charge is made that the Philadel phia Press "stands dumb before Senator Quay." The general observation is that it is a sad case of mutual dumbness. New Orleans newspapers announce that Major Burke, the defaulter and ex editor who is now in exile in Honduras, is in wretched health. He is said to be suffering from a cancer of the nose. His wife is still in the south of France. The leaders of tlie Argentine revolut ionists calculated that they had 1,000,000 cartridges, but found that they had but 100,000. It is doubtful if gentlemen should be trusted with the affairs of state whose arithmetic is so sadly def ective. President Gelman appo...

WOMAN AND HOME. THE SAD TIME IN A WOMAN'S LIFE, WHEN SHE HAS NO PLACE. Ihe Happy, Careless, Motherly Woman. Some Things Never ln Fashion —Fifth Avenue Belles—lt Was a Woman's Idea —An Old Walter—Gentle Hints. There is a time in a -woman's life when she is too old for the dance and frolic of the young, and too young for the quiet corner of the old. No class claims her. She feels often lih9 an alien from tho com monwealth of womanhood. In charitable work and in social life the invisible line is passed. No one invites her now to preside at the fancy booth or hasten the sale of flowers with her gracious smiles. Neither is she asked to give the dignity of her age and position as one of the patronesses of the fair. She is laughed at if she dresses in the gay colors her soul loves, or scolded {by her family) for always wearing black. She has no part in the play, but is quiet ly relegated to the position of stage setter and prompter while younger and older women pose and win applause. Her b...

MEXICAN PROGRESS. features Noticed by an Observant Traveler. I ran across Peter Lewis, an Amercan doing business in the City of Mexico, the other day. Speaking of the progress which Mexi co is making, he said: " There seems to be a kind of hazy idea running through the minds of a good many people in this country that Mexico is greatly behind the age in the march of modern improvements. This is a great error, in the cities at least. Take the City of Mexico, for example. That city is better provided with horse railways and other systems of rapid transit than New York." It is completely cobwebbed with railways, and the cars are used for the most extraordinary purposes. For instance, such a thing as a hearse is completely unknown THE LODGE BILL. Why Should Harrison Endorse a Policy That Grant Abandoned?

Inhale Correctly Means an Erect Body and a Graceful Carriage — The Spine Should Be Straight and the Muscles Soft—tittle Good In Gymnasiums. Over in Brooklyn is a little man with a gigantic chest and marvelously strong muscles. He ia the founder of a new sys tem of physical education. Thirty-two years ago, when he was wearing his first knickerbockers, he was so puny that his parents thought it was hardly worth while to encourage him to go on living. Today, although he is small he is as strong as a bulldog and delights in amusing his friends and astonishing strangers by lying flat on his back and lifting up 240 pound men at arm's length. He thinks the cus tom of putting young Americans through a course of calisthenic and gymnastic ex ercises is all wrong. "The present system is wrong from be ginning to end," he said to a reporter. "Pick up a six months old infant," he added, "hold him in an unstrained upright pos...
