Apoet 1»ttte rosy prima And blithe and dewy morn of time, When song was natural as breath, Three songs sent forth to right with death. And one.he made to please the crowd. It.pleased them, and his praise was loud; It pleased tlioin greatly for a day, And. then its music died away. And one he made to please the few. 1 It lived a century or two; 'Tsvas sung within \tho halls of kings, Then vanished with forgotten things. And one he made to please himself, Without a thought of fame or pelf, But s.ent it forth with doubt unci fears, Apd it outlasted all the years. No other song has vital breath Through endless time to fight with death Thai) that the singer sings apart To please his solitary heart. —Now York Sun. AN UNTOLD STORY. Lncins Lobdell bad married one of ;be sweetest girls in t^be world, but he seemed to lose sight of that fact as soou us he fouud himself bound to her for life. A good manyjhings were necessary two years after their marriage to keep Mr. Lobdell from fiuding life burden­ some. Among these were four clubs, several fine horses, which ho handled himself at the \gentlemen's matinees,\ and the privilege of going aud coming when he pleased. | If Beatrice Lobdell grieved because of bis neglect, she did so in the strictest secrecy, and succeeded iu retaining her beauty through it all. It was whispered, however, that she didn't care, but there is a great deal of Whispering in, society that is unwar­ ranted. Certainly Mrs. Lobdell might have had admirers if sbe had wanted tbem. Indeed she did have them, but they bad to admire from a distance un­ til George Wbitford arrived upon the scene. Tbe Lobdells bad joined a fasnionn- ble family club, : not that Mr. Lobdell cared for it, but he wunted his wife to have some place where sbe could enjoy herself while ho i\vas not with bur. You see, be was a bind hearted, cuival-- rous fellow in spite of tbe fact that it bored him to be much in tbe presence of the.beautiful,- young woman he bad once loved so madly. The whole trouble, if you must know it, was that tbey were unsuited to each other. Mrs. Lobdell bad a taste for tbe artistic Her husband wtis not inclined tjnit way. He was one of tbe best ama­ teur drivers in town—no one knew the fine points about a horse better than he. He belonged to tbe athletic club, bad been known to walk seveb miles through tbe country mud in ordor to see a - for­ bidden prizefight, and be had won a medal ou tbe golf links. Beatrice Lobdell's enthusiasm over rare old prints, Fitzgerald's rendering of tbe Rubyiat, and all that sort of thing seemed silly to him. But one evening when sbe had ac­ companied tbe Wimbertons to tbe Thursday'evening cotillon party at.the Orpheus club, Bhe met George. Whit- ford. He danced with her and talked about things iu which she was interest­ ed. He could quote 40 of Fitzgerald's best quatrains, and Mrs. Lobdell said when tbe Wimbertons were ready to go home' that she was very glad to have met him. After that it became customary for , Beatr itee Lobdell to attend the Thurs­ day evening parties with the Wimborr tons, and George Wbitford's name loomed up conspicuously upon ber pro,- 1 jjramme. /' \It'a -a pity,\ he said to her one! evening when tbey were sitting out a dance in tbe parlor, \that you W8re bom iu luxury.\ \Why?.\ sbe asked. •'If it bad been otherwise you would have added something to the world's literature that would have lived. Tbe absence of necessity is unfortunate iu your case.\ \Do you really think I have talent?\ \I am sure of it.\ Wbitford was beginning to be known in the world of letters as a novelist aud essayist. He was yonug, handsome and not much of a favorite with men. But most women regarded bim as interest­ ing. t Mrs.' Lobdell looked at him earnestly and sighed. \Perhaps I would have been happier, too,\ sbe said, \if I bad been compelled to do something more than sit around and feel that my life was going to waste.\ \Why not do it anyway?\ be asked after awhile. \Suppose we collaborate on a story?\ \I thiukj\ she answered, \that I could give you the outline of a story that would interest the world.\ There was something iu ber tone—a .tinge of wistful sadness—tbat brotrgi the color.tp bis cheeks. He bent for ward eagerly to make a reply, but sbe hurriedly rose, sayiug: \Oome we must not sit here any longer. He followed ber back to the ballroom, and when they parted tbat evening be pressed her baud very gently, while bis heart went at a violent pitch. Sbe avoided his look and said\Good- by'> instead of \Good night.\ George Whitford waited for their next meeting with boyish impatience, and when tbe evening arrived it sud­ denly occurred to bim tbat sbe might uot oorne.. In that case he didu't'know What he would do. But when tbe Wim­ bertons -put jn an appearance sbe was with them, and he saw that ber cheeks reddened when be went forward to greet ber. He managed before long to lead ber away from the crowd. Then he asked: \ When are you going to give me that story you spoke of?\ ^ * Bhe looked at \ him as if she were frightened and answered almost in a whisper: , 1 \Never \Why?\ \I must not. It would be wrong.\ \No story tbat yon have to tell me, * he said, \could be wrong,\ Sbe looked at a water color upon tbe wall\and asked: I ' \Have you ever- noticed how that artist failed in bis foreshortening?\ \Hang that artist!\ Whitford ex­ claimed. 'JYou kubw.you-are uot inter­ ested in bis picture. Say thkt you will tell me tbe story. Do it for my sake. With it I.know I could make tbe world listen.\ ' > 7 : Sbe looked up at bim, and after they bad gazed into each other's eyes for a moment sbe replied'. \\Well, some day perhaps.\ \Ob here you are. \ exclaimed a man to wnoni Mrs. •.juobrtell was engaged for tbe next dance. \Oome on; they'vo be gnu \ George Whitford sat alone for awhile and then went into the ballroom to find Mrs. Wimpettou waiting for bim. He bad- forgot ( teu tbat his uame was upon ' her card for tbat-unmber. \ j It was a long week for Whitfor.d, that ' next one, and them was a huge disap- ( poiutment for him at the end of it. ; When Mrs. Lobdell-arrived at the, Orpheus club, her huHbaud was with • her. ! Bnt Lucius Lobdell was uot one of tbdse selfish fellows tbat keep their pretty wives all to themselves at danc­ ing parties. He put his name upon the cards of soveral married ladies as a mat- 1 ter of dntyaud then rushed iu amoug tho young folk, for he bad a fondness for girls especially as dancing partners. , So it was uot long before \Whitford | had an opportunity to lead Beatrice i Lobdell into tho refreshment room and ' from theie to a little nook oft' ouoof the j parlors, 1 \I bejieve,\ he said, \that there is ; finch a thing'as fate, and that J am one i of its victims.\ \Yes she repliod, \I know there is i such a thing as fate, and it has'many victims.\ \Why did be come this evening?\ ; Wbitford asked after they bad been si- < lently looking at each other for awhile. \I don't know,\ she answered'. \He ; proposed it himself.\ I \I Was afraid,\ ho said, \that you ! bad asked him to come.\ \No; I never ask bim to go anywhere with me.\ \Do you know thatl have been think­ ing out a story during' the past few days,\ Whitford said, \which 1 fancy, must bo very like \the one you have promised to tell me some time? 1 \ \Have you?\ roplind, looking away from him and toying with the cord attach 3d to her card. Yes. Shall f give you the,outline of it?\ let us V/ait until soibe other not DiooanonnQs at all. \Out a tween the mastiff and bulldog; haps the *'dogma\ '-of B&rdearixi were brindled, prick eared, ana doubt-; less horribly savage.

The .stories of their ferocity are probably not exaggerated, though Lord Balearres, who imported 200 of them into Jamaica to aid in sub­ duing the maroons, never used them.. He frightened the negroes into submis­ sion by circulating 'the stories current about the dogs. —London Spectator. There was a pretty little sturdy boy once, with cheeks as rosy and plump as. ripe peaches. This was a very unhappy little boy. He sat. in the back parlor of a chandler's shop in Boston town. His father made candles. .The lad had to \help wrap and strip j tile wicks, and, oh, dear me,.be hated; the very sight of a candle. .

She insisted upon my hiding my salary, so if I should be held ' up the highwaymen wouldn't get it. 1 , dr.-fw my stipend at 6 p. m., and it is quite dark before,I get home. She is a j good hider in the .house, but her talent j in that line stops thei'e. Now, she had !-the brilliant idea that I should put the i envelope containing my money under | the sweatband of my bat. Highway- ; men would never look there and would i never rob a man of his bat. After she i had made -this suggestion about 40 ] times I accepted it. I went home as i usual on the elevated.

As soon as the morning meal •the next day was over little Ben, to Wis astonishment, was presented with a new fishing rod and told to get ready for a day's sport. \Whatever can this have to do with cho'osing a trade V\ thought tbe boy. He trotted through the crOoked streets, of Boston -with his uncle, soon passing the i statehouse and leaving the big, bare! Common behind as they went toward; Dorchester. The uncle guessed the cause; of tho boy's silence, but did not en- j lighten him. Then, when be was seated * on a green bank fishing, the old man tried to impress on bim his first views of life. \Look about you, lad,\ said Uncle Benjamin, \and see what a busy scene surrounds us. Everybody and everything is at work. Yonder is\ tbe plow going over the ground; down by the shore the people are gathering sea­ weed. Even the tiny vessels out there are those of fishermen catching fish for waddled up the bank with loud squawks, Walter gave lltill a switch and got one for himself. \We'll wave these and keep off the f 3e, \ be'said. Lill stood at tho end of the bridge audi waved.her branch bravely. But when Cowslip looked at Walter wiih her'big round oyes he suddenly sat down by Lill's side and let*Lill do the waving. Cowslip took no notice. She walked over tbe bridge, switching her tail Then Walter stood up 1 firmly' and shook his switch after her. 1'Go home, you foolish creature, yon!\ he shouted. Some more of tbe enemy advauoed. The old ram, seeing some one iu the way who.was not much taller than himself, promptly knocked-Walter down and jumped over bim. The.sheep fol lowed, as sheep will, and one after the other jumped over the screaming boy. Walter picked himself up after they bad gone :by and found be was more frightened'than hurt.
