Rowing will be universally stimulated by the participation of the crew of the University of Pennsylvania in the grand challenge cup race at Henley in July.

PORTO RICAN WEALTH INDUCEMENTS IN AGRICULTURE AND CATTLE RAISING. Government Reports Facta Encourag inc to Investors—Cultivation of Sugar Cane and Tobacco Insures Handsome DProfits—Railways and Koada Needed. People in search of reliable informa­ tion about Porto Rico "will find a lot of valuable statistics in the official report of the census of the island, issued by the United States War Department. The census was taken under the direc­ tion of Lieutenant Colonel J. P. Sanger, who hasrmade his report a document of unusual interest. While agriculture is now the prin­ cipal source of wealth to Porto Rico, says Colonel Sanger, the early settlers were for many years engaged in cattle raising, and this is still an important industry, the rich and luxuriant pas­ tures and many streams providing all that is necessary for this purpose. It may be said that all fruits and vegeta­ bles adapted to a tropical climate will yield abundantly in Porto Rico, and this is especially true of the coffee...

Now the days are getting longer, and the folks who wake at dawu And can't sleep If there is any noise about, Soon will hear the merry clatter of the mower on the lawn And the garbage man who rolls the bar­ rels put. How they'll .toss and turn and tumble in a vain attempt to sleep When the rising sun shines in at four o'clock How they'll growl and groan and gnmble and they'll curse both loud and deep As they hear the milkman coming down the block. There's a moment, then, of quiet, and one fqlls into a doze. Then a crash against the door—you're wide awake! It resembles a bombardment, but, as every­ body knows. It's the way the newsboys leave the Dally Fake. It's no use to try to slumber, for the world is waking up, The trolley gongs are clanging as they pass. The flies are buzzing fiercely and the neish bor's yelping pup Is chasing English sparrows off the grass. Oh, we're glad the summer's coming, when the snow wil...

Boston is afflicted with a milk famine, but the devoted people will no doubt bear up as long as the supply of beans holds out. J. Pierpont Morgan has paid $25,000 for a single book. Had he been looking for bargains, he might have bought a whole library for $25. The Skyscraper Trust will attempt to levy tribute upon the architectural as­ pirations of men who rre bent on the pre-emption of ethereal i,pace. South Dakota's "divorce colony" en ables the people to see a great many Easterners of notoriety who find the Da­ kota climate conducive to freedom. The Charleston sheriff who reports the case of a negro who grew a shade lighter through fear, while in jail, may have overlooked the influence of the jail lava tory.

At the ideal angling inn the non-angler is regarded as an interloper, very likely turned into the commercial room regard­ less of whether or no he happens to trav­ el in anything, and the fatted calf is not killed for him. No one understood the delights of the country inn of the old sort better than William Howitt, whose "Itural Life of England" lias many de­ lightful passages.

SPINNING WHEEL. CLEANING HOUSE. The qlr vibrates with slow and measured thuds. And o'er the landscape oft a dust cloud scuds For in the back yard gloomily now stands A man with face begrimed and blistered hands. Across a rope the parlor carpet hangs. And on It with a club he feebly bangs His eyes are tilled with dust, his ears the same, His arms are sore, bis back is stiff and lame, But often comes this cry across the yard— "Why don't you beat that carpet real hard?" His Ire is roused, but no retort goes back Instead he hits the thing a fiercer crack, And pounds away with grimness of de­ spair, While-still the «ust ascends to spoil the air At lust ere darkness bides his task from view Again he hears the voice, "I'll make it do, liut don't imagine that your work's com­ plete, For there are ten much worse than that to beat. The carpet from the rope is meekly tugged And slowly to the parlor it is lugged And then though back and anus and bands are sore The wearied man must tack it to th...
