How sad lused to be in those old days away back there Before I knew the world was full of hidden snares and care I thought it was a task to hold the skein as mother wound The crimson yarn while here and there a stubborn snarl was found I thought my lot a dismal one, as sit ting there at night I heard the humming spinning wheel and watched the firelight Dance out across the floor and back as fairy dancers might. Ah, how I used to long to see the world I'd read about, To p^ck my little carpet-sack and boldly sally out! Reluctantly I used to bow my head upon the chair When father found that it was time to say the evening prayer, And thinking that my lot was hard—ah, how- absurd It seems— I went up to my little bed beneath the white-washed beams. And, far away from wordly cares, had proud, ambitious dreams. Oh there Is much that I have learned about the world since then, And much I've seen t...

Floated about a secluded landing in the Great Peconic bay in a remote corner of Long Island 6ix of these little daredevils of the sea are daily exploiting their won drous feats, diving out of sight, rising again in four seconds, firing their deadly torpedoes under the water at targets, and performin...

0 v. THE INVALID'S BATE. Evcrr Xorie Should Know How to Make It So .as Not to Disturb the Pattest. One of -the most essential things in nursing is to learn how to change the bed clothes of a helpless patient, without uncovering or disturbing him or her unnecessarily. This is not easy, particularly if the sick person is stout and temporarily unconscious, or, for some special reason, as in op erative cases, is not allowed to turn, or even move a limb. This, says the New York Tribune, is the time when a nurse shows her skill, patience and tact. Without fuss, without bustle, with out noise, she has everything in read iness—-sheets, pillow cases, draw sheet, etc., all aired and warmed. Then she places a protected hot-wa ter bag at her patient's feet, for it must be remembered that, owing to their lowered vitality, the sick are extremely susceptible to cold and the least change of temperature, hencc the absolute necessity of having the sheets thorougly warmed before ven turing to use them...

WHEN Jfcj Charles Dickens saw an American prairie for the first time he wondered how. any human being could live upon it a year with out going mad. Yet statistics show that a preponderance of evidence is in favor of the prairies and against the hills. The great psalmist sang: "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help,' not material' help, but Divine, for those were the figurative hills of God, and their tops reached to Heav en. The hills that give Strength also take it away, as the men and women living on those declevities that are' bare and bleak in winter, that lift their bald and rugged fore heads to the eternal altitude of the skies, can freely testify. Humanity only accentuates the loneliness. A house perched on the side of one of those eternal hills is as remote as an eagle's ne...

DECISION TO STAND. Illicit Sam Will Abide by the Rul ing of King Oscar. Hlstarjr of Controversy Which Bai Its Origin in Far-Oil SuutwaaU Maw Has Been Settled at S' Stockholm. The ruling of King Oscar of Sweden and Norway, in the Samoan contro versy, against the United States and Great Britain and in favor of Ger many, is hailed with some surprise by many papers. The decision "is staggering, to put it mildly," declares the Brooklyn Eagle and the New York Tribune says it is "surprising and inexplicable." The decision holds that the landing of marines on April 1,' 1899, at Apia was not justified, and that, in consequence, the governments of Great Britain and the United States must pay the complainants for their loss. How the division of payment be tween the United States and Great Britain will be made does not seem to be known in the state department, but it is believed that ii may have to be arranged by a special agreement between the two countries. The ori gin of the controversy is t...

4':- An Escapade 'v'. »y TOM QAZXOM. OU come into the towoi by way of the sea. That is, not exactly by the sea itself, but along the very edge of it. A little train—fussy and important—puffs and snorts its way 'along the coast, and plunges in the most reckless fashion into a tunnel emerges with a sort of shriek of sat isfaction and deposits you at a lit tie toy station on the very beach. It was in that way that Mr. Rich ard Lyddon came into Dawlisli and it is extremely safe to say that he wished he had never come at all Truth to tell, Dick Lyddon was bored to death. At the present mo ment he was supposed to be on a walking tour which consisted in go ing everywhere by train or carriage, and never walking, if it could by any possibility be avoided. Dick was very rich—ridiculously rich, in fact—with out a relative in the world, and without anyone to look after him, save certain shadowy trustees whom he saw about four times a year. Dick was also very young young enough, indeed, not to h...

i:'p, THE TEST OF TIME. Mr si "Clara J. Sherbourne, Profea uonal Nurse of 257 Cumberland St., Portland, Maine, says:—: "I heartily wish those who suffer from "Some disturbed action, of the kidneys would try Doaa's Kidney Pills. They would, like me, be more than surprised. My back annoyed me for years. Physicians who diag nosed my case said it arose from my kidneys. When the grip was epi demic, I M^as worn out with constant nursing, and when I contracted it myself it left xne in a very serious condition. I could not straighten nor do the most trivial act without being in torture. The kidneys were too active or the secretions were too copious, and I knew what was wrong, but how to right it was a mystery. It seems odd for a professional nurse, who has had a great deal of experience with medicines, to read advertisements about Dean's Kidney Pills in the newspapers, and it may appear more singular for me to go to H. H. Hay & Son's drug store for box. But I did, however and had anybod...

She was a little provoked to learn that her husband expected his friend ..Webb up .to spend a few days in the country. a man she had heard much of—too much of—but never to her positive knowledge had seen. She had a faint idea of his being Jackson's college chum that he trav eled a great deal, and was a person of many accomplishments—according to Jackson. At any other time of the year he was just- such a man as would appeal to her, but this was a season when no man save her hus Band had any charms. In her mind's eye Webb was tall, handsome, ami able and artificial, and for that rea son she WAS sure to dislike him, or his presence.

The name of the good man or woman who seeks rest from weary sermons in slumber is.le gion. From time immemorial the practice has been countenanced by our very "best people, and although it is in the highest degree reprehensible it has been smiled rather thail frowned upon. Kentucldans are very much like their fellow citizens of less distin guished commonwealths.
