THEY TWO, and sometimes forgot what the book of He I.eft THE They are left alone in the dear old home, After so many years When the house was full of frolic and fun, Of childish laughter and tears. They are left alone! they two—once more! Beginning life over again, Just as they did in the days of yore, Before they were nine or ten. And the table is set for two these days; The children went one by one, Away from home on their separate ways, When the childhood days were done. How healthily hungry they used to be! What romping they used to do I And mother—for. weeping—can hardly see To set the table for two. They used to gather around the fire While some one would read aloud, But whether at study or work or play, 'Twas a loving and merry crowd, And now they are two that gather there At evening to read or sew, And it seems almost-top much to bear When they think of the long ago. Ah, well! ah, well! 'tis the way of the world! Children stay bat a little while, And then into other scenes are whirled, Where other homes beguile. But it matters not how far they roam, Their hearts are fond and true, And there's never a home like the dear old home, Where the table is set for two. OLD PETE. If it had been a question of endurance, the bay might have won. Perhaps it was the day—a soft, balmy, winter day, with a southerly wind, which whispered of coming spring; perhaps it was our youth, strong, exuberant and bright, with its glowing promise of all which life holds best; it may have been all things combined. At any rate, without being conscious of it, we were enjoying ourselves to the full, in the innocence and buoyancy of merely living our healthful country life. I was driving—I always drove when we had Old Pete, for, for some occult reason, perhaps, be and Kitty did not harmonize. Kitty was a far better driver than I, but Pete always fretted when she held the lines. Looking back at it now, I think that possibly it was Kitty's excess of oversoul which worried Pete. She was dainty, well poised and sensible in most things, but there were times when her grasp after the infinite, so to speak, stood in the way of her practical advancement then as afterward. I was not burdened with oversoul—that is, I didn't slop over, and Pete knew that I carried the sugar. But to go back to the balmy winter day, with its southerly breath of spring, the hard, white road and the glorious sunshine. We were gliding lazily along, with not a sound but the tinkle of our sleigh bells and our own voices to break the stillness— I don't mean the tinkle of our own voices, but you understand—when a voice beside us said in a merry, bantering tone: "Oh, young ladies, that's a fine horse you have there; wouldn't you like to race?" Knowing my companion and our horse, and taking stock of the two in the sleigh without bells that had crept up behind us unnoticed, I answered as nonchalantly as though we bad met at breakfast: "If quite agreeable to you, yes. But how much start shall we allow you?" The question evidently amused our companions, as their jolly laugh indicated. The younger man was doing all the talking, as is frequently the case. "We'll allow you an eighth of a mile with pleasure, ladies." "I'll give you a quarter and beat you an eighth to the crossroads." This excited their mirth still more and the younger reached us his whip as the elder courteously raised his hat,saying: "This is a fine stretch here. Suppose we start even?" It was evident that he thought the matter had gone far enough and so took this method of bidding us good morning. Indeed, the glances of scarcely concealed amusement which they cast upon our lean white horse implied that they had wasted time enough in that fashion. Without consulting the code of etiquette as regards horse racing with strangers who come upon one unawares, I replied: "Very well. You have been warned. We'll wait for you at the cross roads. Go, Pete 1" and I gave him a loose line. My heart thrills even now and in fancy I reach out my hand and pat Old Pete as I give him his sugar. The transformation was wonderful. Pete, who had been fretting under the restraining line, suddenly reached out, and instead of the plain, homely, white, angular animal, jogging lazily along, whom our challengers had overtaken, he became in an instant a clean-limbed, far-reaching, spirited trotter, with proud head well forward and every muscle quivering with delight as he threw the snow from his feet in his onward, even, lightning-like rush. \ ';vf ^' At the crossroads we waited for the bay to come up. Both men raised their hats—to the horse. The older one Remarked: ; : "I was saying to my friend that you have little need for the whip which he so suggestively offered you." "We never use a whip, thank you," Kitty demurely replied. kitty's oversoul stood her in good stead here, for I was about to have said something quite different. Kitty was nearly 18 and. I wasn't. I had scarcely seen 16, OUT OF DEATH'S JAWS.—"When death seemed very near from a severe stomach and liver trouble, that I had suffered with for years," writes P Muse, Dunham, N C., " Dr. King's New Life Pilla saved my life and gaveperfecthealth.'',_Be8t pills on earth and ohiy $6o at W N Smithfe drug sfibre, also »A MetealPs, Haa* aidvittStr'r&y* -4 * etiquette taught on certain points. The younger man was quite crest fallen, but I don't think that would have restrained me, if Kitty had not opportunely interrupted my flow of speech. The battle over, Pete had gone back to his ungainly form under the shortened rein. The younger, after looking him critically over, suddenly asked, as though light had dawned: "May I ask if that horse has ever been on the track?" "Old Pete has been on the track." "Old Pete!" echoed our listeners in unison, and with an accent of surprise and chagrin on the part of the questioner, who exclaimed, while his companion looked at our horse with renewed interest: "Had we known you were driving Old Pete, we should hardly have been foolish enough to challenge you to a race." "Presumably." How that grand old horse did take his laurels! Not triumphantly, but quietly, as though they belonged to him. He knew his power. Go east or west, north or south, there was nothing that could show his heels t6 Pete, even then fifteen years old. Years before, his fame had been spread. Gentle as a kitten—a child could drive him, needing no whip or spur— calling only for a loose line and absolute freedom of movement, he was king of the track, known and admired by all and idolized by his owner. Jealous of his speed and his success, some vandals had stolen and driven him until nature could endure no more, and the horse had fallen in a fit where the rascals, fearing arrest, had abandoned him. From that day Old Pete, though no less swift of foot, was unfit for the track. The fits continued, although they were of uncertain occurrence and duraJ tion. His master having died, Pete had become the property of a kind-hearted liveryman, who took good care of the old favorite. No whip ever went where Pete went, and it was not everybody who was allowed to drive him. All who took him out were instructed to feed him half a pound of loaf sugar, of which he was very fond. But that little burst of speed on Pete's part had far-reaching results on that day. Our race had carried us past the road we had intended taking, so after our errands were completed we decided to go home by another route, more especially as, being shorter, it might possibly enable us to escape the snowstorm which we saw was fast overtaking us; indeed the sky was growing very much overcast and the flakes were even then coming in a way that betokened a heavy fall. Although they were saturated with moisture, it was fortunately still warm and there was but little wind. It was 4 o'clock and we had ten miles to go. We had covered four miles of the distance when we came to a railroad crossing, where Pete deliberately stopped as we were half-way over. This might have been embarrassing at another time, but fortunately no train was due on either track for an hour. We waited and Pete waited, looking now and then toward the west. At length, growing a bit uneasy— I thought of fits-r-I said: ' 'What's the matter, Pete?" He gave a slight twist of the sleigh in the direction in which he had been turning his head and stood stock still with his head full to the west. I had been watching him intently, but Kitty had gone beyond that and she suddenly exclaimed : ' 'There's something wrong on the track. There's a break in the snow. See where the• rails sink and there's a gully on the lower side." From where we sat we could see what the trouble was. A portion of the bed bad caved in and, loosening the snow on the bank, had made a serious obstruction on one side, while two of the rails were bent downward through lack of support. There was nothing to do, if we would avert a serious accident, but to drive back to the nearest telegraph office—a distance of three miles. .The idea was not pleasant, for the snow was now falling heavily and promised to make it difficult for us to get home. Still, there was nothing else to be done. The Boston express was due in fifty minutes and there was no time to be lost We reached the office and had the satisfaction of knowing that the operator sent word to hold the Boston express and called for a repair train. By the time we again reached the crossing, the snow had increased to a depth of several inches and was still falling more thickly than ever. The road had been obliterated; the wind rising bad drifted the snow as it fell. Still we kept the horse moving homeward, hoping to cross the plains before the snow had become deep. But our hope was useless. The flakes had become a blanket, and the depth wasincreasing too rapidly for our peace of mind. Long before we reached the plains the snow had accumulated to a foot in depth, and when we touched the boundary of the level tract, which was really a small prairie, we were obliged to shake off from the robe the Bnow which had forced its way into the sleigh. So great was the weight added to the depth that the horse could travel only at a slow walk. As the plains were surrounded by thick woods, and through such a falling mass The days of my youth have passed. Part of the promise then given has been fulfilled, and part has failed of fruition. But ever, as the glimpses of those early days come back to me, I think of the many pleasant hours passed behind Old Pete, and I sometimes wonder if, in that other life, my spirit shall have recognition of the friend of my youth, who long since entered into his well-earned rest in a land where we may justly hope that for him the green fields are forever waving. LITERARY NOTES. A druggist naturally prefers to sell a good article—he makes the same profit as on an inferior preparation—hence they universally recommend Ramon's Liver Pills and Tonic Pellets. In this locality this "mild power" modern treatment has almost' altogether superceded the old style drastic liver pills.

All traces of the road were snowed in, although I did my best to keep the beaten track. At times the horse came to a standstill, seemingly both from fatigue and in protest at my direction. We were in fear that the fatigue might bring on one of Pete's fits, in which he would lie down for an indefinite time and on recovering could only struggle on feebly. We had planned in that contingency to turn the sleigh upside down and remain until daybreak, or until somebody came to dig us out. Pete's protest at my guidance became so marked that, thinking he might know a short cut of which I was ignorant, we decided to give him his head, whereupon he turned a sharp right angle to the direction in which I had been trying to drive him, and in about three-quarters of an hour we saw the distant lights of the village straight ahead. Had Pete followed my direction he would have taken us into a deep swamp, which nobody ever attempted to cross, even in the dryest summer weather, and where nobody would have thought of searching. I could not have guided him in a worse direction, and had cold overtaken us in my obstinate endeavor, we should probably have perished. We stopped at home to announce our safe arrival, it being then nearly 11 o'clock, but such was our gratitude to Pete that we insisted on taking him to the stable ourselves. We learned afterwards that our friends, becoming greatly alarmed about us, strove to organize a searching party and send in two directions, not knowing which road we might take home. The liveryman,however, having learned what horse we were driving, vetoed the proposition, saying that Old Pete would not have a fit that day, and that he was the only horse in his stable who could find his way across the plains in such a snow storm. If he could not bring us home, no other horse could find In the current magazine number of the OUTLOOK particularly good portraits with brief sketches are given of Mr. Cannon, who is to be almost certainly the speaker of the next house of representatives, M. Jusserand, the new French ambassador, who is distinguished for his literary as well as his political achievements, and John St. Loe Strachey, the editor and proprietor of the London Spectator, which has no superior as a critical weekly paper. Mr. Strachey is now visiting this country. Two important articles bearing on the question of the American meat supply are contributed to the REVIEW OP REVIEWS for January. Under the title of "The American Ox and His Pasture." Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews writes on the measures proposed, in and out of Congress, for the reclamation and improvement of the grazing lands in the West, where practically all our beef cattle are grown and fattened. This article is supplemented by a careful study of the recent advance in beef prices by Fred C. Croxton, an expert in the United States department of labor. A little church in Pennsylvania recently celebrated the one thousand millionth minute since Christ's coming to earth. In an article in the COSMOPOLITAN on "Pier-pont Morgan, His Advisers and His Organization," John Brisben Walker mentions that Mr. Rockefeller is popularly supposed to control one thousand million dollars, and that one thousand million dollars would represent the labor of ten thousand men since Christ's coming to earth, calculated at the average scale of wages paid during the past two thousand years. In the same number of the COSMOPOLITAN, a very interesting calculation is made as to what the one thousand millions could accomplish in the hands of a thoroughly ambitious man. The January number of the NEW ENGLAND MAGAZINE opens with an article on "Boston's Playground System," by Joseph Lee, whose connection with many of the public philanthropies of Boston is guarantee of its accuracy. The evolution of the playground, from what its name pure and simple implies to the supervised athletic field, gymnasium and outdoor kindergarten that shall wield a correct mental and moral influence over the city youth, is a problem as yet only partly solved, but what' progress the city of Boston has already made and hopes to gain in the future is interestingly shown by text and illustrations. The stories and verses which constitute the remainder of the number are all apt and timely. Train No. 1, west-bound Continental limited, on the Wabash, has made a run of 112 miles from Montpelier, Ohio, to Logansport, Ind., in 110 minutes. Between New Waverly and Logansport, one mile was made in 39 seconds, and one mile in 38 seconds, the latter being at the rate of nearly ninety-five miles an hour.

"I want you," he said slowly, glaring Into the boy's eyes, "to go upstairs and. see if I left my toothbrush and comb In my room. Toothbrush and comb, toothbrush, toothbrush, toothbrush! Don't forget what I want, boy, and hurry, too. Got to get my train." "N-no, sir-r; y-yes, sir," chattered Willie. Winslow hung about impatiently, watching the clock like a hawk. Only two minutes to spare. Jiist as he caught up his bag to depart Willie came on a dead run across the floor, his face aglow with the sense of a lofty mission well performed. "Yes, sir,", he cried eagerly, "you left 'em!" Winslow gazed at his empty handed-emissary. His lips moved, but no words came forth. Then, with an inarticulate snarl, he stepped into the waiting carriage.— Kansas City Journal. Fiih Blowing1 Bait Up the Line. How on earth or in the water fish contrive to blow large' baits three or four yards up the line has yet to be explained. It is a common thing to find large slabs of pilchard bait used for pollack blown right up the line by large fish. This happens only when the pollack is itself hooked. I have recently found that large bass serve one the same trick, writes a correspondent, but in this case the bass, which is a more cunning fish than the pollack, sometimes gets away. ^To realize the immense difficulty of 9bch a feat let any one put even a piece of paper on a hook and endeavor tho blow it up the line with a bellows. Much more difficult It must be with the resistance of the water, and by what muscular action the fish contrives it I know not. I have searched the textbooks in vain for some hint on the subject.—London Opinion. The Word "Picnic." Few people know the original meaning of the word "picnic." It Is to be found set out in the London Times of a hundred years ago. "A picnic supper consists of a variety of dishes. The subscribers to this entertainment have a bill of fare presented to them, with a number against each dish. The lot which he draws obliges him to furnish the dish marked against it, which he either takes with him in his carriage or sends by a servant. The proper variety is preserved by the talents of the maitre d'hotel, who forms the bill' of fare. As the cookery is furnished by so many people of fashion each strives to excel, and thus a picnic supper not only gives rise to much pleasant mirth, but generally can boast of the refinement of the art" Where He Rode. A schoolboy who was going to a party was cautioned by his father, not to walk home if it rained and was given money for cab hire. It rained heavily, and great wqp the father's surprise when his son, in spite of the instructions he had received, arrived home drenched to the skin. "Did you not take a cab as I ordered you, Alfred?" the parent asked sternly. "Oh, yes; but when I ride with you you always make me ride inside. This time I rode on top with the driver. Say, dad, it was grand!"—Utica Observer. A Wonderful Echo. At a watering place in the Pyrenees the conversation at table turned upon a wonderful echo to be heard some distance off on the Franco-Spanish frontier. "It Is astonishing," said an Inhabitant of the Garonne. "As soon as you have spoken you hear distinctly the voice leap from rock to rock, from precipice to precipice, and as soon" as It has passed the frontier the echo assumes the Spanish accent."—Pearson's Weekly.' Kniffhta of Old. The knights of the days of chivalry were so well protected by their armor that they were practically invincible to all ordinary weapons. Even when dismounted they could not be injured save by the misericordia, a thin dagger, which penetrated the chains of the armor. In more than one battle knights fallen from their horses could not be killed until their armor had been broken up with axes and hammers. Good Coolc*.

The genius to arrange a railroad time card, or time table; so that it may be readily, easily and accurately understood by the occasional traveler is not yet born. Perhaps he will have to be made. But no matter how much the patrons of a road may be mystified the management takes particular pains to supply a special card "for the government and Information of employees only." This table is so simple that a child can understand It The second page usually contains a table showing the rate of speed required per mile for a train to travel a given number of miles In an hour. It starts at fifteen miles an hour, which Is four minutes to the mile, and goes as high as 100 miles an hour, or a mile in thirty-six seconds, and shows 200 subdivisions. This card gives locations: of regular water stations, yard limits, situations of standard clocks, maximum speed of freight trains between different towns, what days are holidays, speeds at which trains may cross bridges at various hours and a list of all stations arid trains. It is likely, of .course, that were similar cards furnished to the traveling :public -there, would be no abatement of fool questions. Besides, it is not to the Interest of a railroad company to take the public too entirely into its confidence.—New York Press. Who Executed Charles I.T In the burial register of Whitechapel under the year 1649 is the following entry: "June 21st. Richard Brandon, a man out of Rosemary lane. This Brandon Is held to be the man who beheaded Charles the First." A less distinguished candidate for the infamy was one William Howlett, actually condemned to death after the restoration for a part he never played and only saved from the gallows by the urgent efforts of a few citizens who swore that Brandon did the deed. Brandon was not available for retribution. He had died in his bed six months after Charles was beheaded and had been hurried ignominiously Into his grave in Whitechapel churchyard. As public executioner of London he could hardly escape his destiny, but it is said that remorse and horror shortened his days. In his supposed "Confession," a tract widely circulated at the time, he claims that he was "fetched out of bed by a troop of horse" and carried against his will to the scaffold; also that he was paid £30, all in half crowns, for the work and had "an orange stuck full of cloves and a handkerchief out of the king's pocket" The orange he sold for 10 shillings In Rosemary lane.—Harper's Magazine. Washington's Birthday. Washington's birthday was made a legal holiday by vote of the Massachusetts legislature April 15, 1856; therefore Feb. 22, 1857, was first a legal holiday. For maijy years previous Mrs. Harrison Gray Otis held a reception at her home on Feb. 22, to which all the people of the city of Boston were invited. Her house was open to the public on that day, and before and after the day became a legal holiday all the military companies of Boston would parade past her house on the 22cL Probably the first occasion of Washington's birthday being recognized was Feb. 12, 1781. That was by the French troops at Newport, R. I. As the 11th fell on Sunday, the celebration was held on the 12th. This was according to the old style of reckoning. Checking a Hemorrhage. Even a very slight hemorrhage is always startling, but it does not necessarily mean anything dangerous. It may be caused by a slight disarrangement of the stomach as well as by a disease of the lungs or heart No one but an experienced physician should decide this question, however. Let the patient lie quietly and give him cold drinks until a physician comes. A little salted water is a simple, familiar household remedy for such cases. Quiet and rest are positively essential if the cause is a serious one. Turkish Cemeteries. Upon the graves of the dead In the Turkish cemeteries little vessels of water are placed for the benefit of the birds, and some of the marble tombs have basins chiseled out for the same purpose, the superstition being that birds carry messages about the living to the dead and, like everybody else In Turkey, are suspected of being spiteful unless something Is done to curry their favor. Period of Deepest Sleep. The period of deepest sleep varies from 3 o'clock to 5. An hour or two after going to bed you sleep very soundly; then your slumber grows gradually lighter, and it Is easy enough to waken you at 1 or 2 o'clock, but when 4 o'clock comes you are in such a state of somnolence that it would take a great deal to waken you. Truth.- Truth Is always consistent with Itself and need? nothing to help It out It is always near at hand, sits upon our lips and is ready to drop out before we are aware.
