That first meeting, in which the sympathy of the two young people was instantaneous, ws^ the prelude to many others—to duets sung in the twilight, to long discus sions upon art and pictures, and, finally, to a question and answer. In the conservatory, under the fronds of a white fernlike palm, George Ver ney had spoken, in accents which trembled in spite of his effort to con trol them, of his love, and with one quick, crimson flush from neck to brow, one look of trust and love from the beautiful blue eyes, Grace Bellamy's fair head had nestled to the young painter's shoulder, and their lips had met in one long lovers' kiss. Ten min utes later George Verney left the house after ...

The statement is made at Ottawa, Ont., with somewhat startling empha sis, that Sir William Laurier has sat in the dominion parliament, as the prime minister of Canada, for the last time. The report to this effect, which gained considerable currency a few days before the prorogation of the re cent parliamentary session in Ottawa, was at the time received with un feigned surprise by the general public, but not so by the personal friends of the premier. Although the latter rid icule the idea, there is, nevertheless, •aid to he ground for the statement which is now being discussed by gov ernment supporters throughout the country with mingled incredulity and dismay. It is- even added that the announce ment of the final retirement of Sir Wilfrid has been set for a time not later than the coming autumn....

1 tV. A QUEST. -Lonar since, there lived a man reputed wise (Some bettgr things were said of him, some worse), Who made his life a tireless quest to know The way and Wherefore of the universe. He wandered through solutions intricate, And old' and new philosophers he read yl This one converted, but another spake, v. And made his faith apostasy Instead. His life was- girt with vain analysis, And subtie disputations held in thrall Ills soul, that wildly dreamed to overleap The mystery Life offers to us all. But when Age left him twisted, gray and worn He felt the barren purpose of his quest. And longed to quite forget his mocking doubts And live his last, tew, trembling days, at rest. But Death had watched him with a cynic's eye— And marked his shuffling feet, his sight grow dim. Arid one still evening stood befre his chair, And smiled, half kindly, as he beckoned him. One passing through a certain field of grave* May find a stone of father ancient date, Which bears these words, the la...

pT WHAT A LIBEARY IS. George R. Peck Defines It as an Epitome of the World. A. Scholarly Plea for Literary Cul ture—Dreams, Fancies and Im agination* Contribute Much to Human Happincu, Galesburg, 111, dedicated its new public library not long ago, and Mr. G.eorge K. Peck, the well-known attor ney of Chicago, was the orator of the day. His address, like all of his "oc casional" efforts, was scholarly in style, happy in illustration, and par ticularly felicitous from a literary point of view. Mr. Peck's close sym pathy with book* and his wide reading eminently qualified him for a task of this kind. His address was a strong tribute to the intellectual forces, and an eloquent appeal for literary cul ture, as not only productive of mental growth, but as destructive of what is obnoxious to that growth. From his point of view the library should be organized, not alone for the dissemina tion of useful knowledge, but for the encouragement of dreams and fancies and imaginations. He believes t...
