This Wfis In Denmark.
An Englishman having business to a
certain Danish town arrived at the
railway station. He inquired of a
group of men standing near the way
to the house he wanted, whereupon
one of them offered to go with him
and show him. With recollections of
what such a service meant in Eng
land he said. "I don't want a guide."
"But surely you asked us to show you
the way," said one of them. "Yes, but
I don't want a guide." "My dear sir,
I am not a guide; I am the bishop."

SUPREMITY OF HONOR.
Better for you to live by life's
crossways, clean, pure, honored and
loved for the goodness of your heart,
than to sit in the seat of a king when
that throne must be bought at the
price of honor. —Edgar D. Vin

ANY LITTLE I CAN DO.

A Dictionary Pillow.
I once know a woman who wrote
books, a woman who was very learned
in the matter of French and Latin
and German and Greek Often when
her nights were dark and dreadful and
sleepless, she would lie awake aud
think of words—what language they
were derived from and what their
original meanings had l>eeu. She told
me that it was a great source of pleas
ure to her and kept her from growing
nervous when she felt wide awake.
Often through the cliill gray dawn I.
too, lie awake and think about words
to keep myself from the unpleasant
imaginings that sometimes haunt me
in the nighttime.—Christian Herald.
No Fresh Air Fo" Him.
No doctor would ever have made
Lord Brampton— best remembered as
Sir Heury Hawkins—subscribe to the
new theory that it is beneficial to sit
in a draft "Few people had a greater
objection to fresh air than Hawkins."
writes J. A. Foote. K. C. "At one time
he had a sort of movable sentry box
constructed for his use in court lu or
der to prevent any possibility of a
draft. He once expressed his prefer
ence for suffocation rather than chill
on the ground that it was a slower
When a Hedgehog Awakes.
When a hibernating hedgehog awak
ens it rapidly warms itself up. Wheth
er this is done automatically or wheth
er it is due to the awakening animal
! "pulling itself together" seems to be
a moot point. The fact is that the
animal rapidly warms itself up. The
chemistry of this is a rapid combus
tion of glycogen along with a small or
moderate quantity of fat. There seems
no doubt that the important fuel which
so rapidly makes the fire of life burn ,
j up is glycogen: the fat Is only sub
sidiary. It must be noticed that in
the hedgehog the awakening and the
warming up are two distinct though
associated processes, for the anjmal
may be awake at a lower temperature.
Noticing oue of her small boys nib
bling at some luncheon In school one
day the teacher called the culprit to
the desk. "You know," she began
sternly, "that you must not eat during
lesson hours! Now as a punishment
you must stand here In front of the
class and eat every bit of it."
The small boy did as he was bid. a
curious grin overspreading his face.
The teacher misunderstood that grin
| until the last scrap had disappeared,
| when fiom the class a smalt voice
j wailed lu tearful accents:
\ "Please, teacher, that wasn't his
' lunch he was eatin'; it was mine."—La

Besides his five or six consummate
works, which by universal consent are
practically above criticism. It may be
said that Goethe's songs are the best
in the world. He is the greutest of
all literary critics, and in subtle and
almndant observation of human life
and in the number Hud vulue of his
wise remarks and pregnant sentences
he is one of the greatest writers of all
time. Goethe may le classed as one
of the "greatest men."—New York
A letter written by ltev. Samuel F.
Smith, author of "America." giving the
circumstances of the writing of that
anthem, says that the work "was stim
ulated into being by a collection of
German music books, brought to this
country by Mr. Wood bridge and hand
ed to me by Mr. Mason with the re
quest that I would adapt any of the
pieces that struck me as favorably to
English words. It is not a translation,
though in German the words were pa
triotic. it was first sung at a chil
dren's Fourth of July celebration in
Park Street church. Boston, in 1832 oc
1833." Dr. Smith states that Lowell
Mason was his chief encourager.
Eggs of files are so small that you
must use a microscope in order to see
their real peculiarities. Each female
fly lays on the average of 150 eggs.
For her cradle she selects a heap of
garbage or refuse. The eggs hatch
into minute maggots. In five days the
maggots turn into little chrysalids. or
pupae, shaped like miniatur? beans.
Within another five days these give
birth to flies, which develop with
amazing rapidity into adult Insects,
and then the mischief begins.
Black Headed Grosbeak.
The black headed grosbeak of the
west takes the place of the rosebreast
in the east and, like it. is a fine song
ster. It feeds on cherries, apricots and
other fruits aud does some damage to
green peas and beans, but It is so ac
tive a foe of certain horticultural pests
that we can afford to overlook its
fault*. For eecb quart of fruit con
sumed It destroys in actual bulk more
than one and a half quarts of black
olive scales and one quart of flower
beetles, besides a generous quantity of
codling moth pupae and cankerworms.

man killed—and you call this a play!
