IK PRIMEVAL WOOD This deep, primeval wood—how still! Lo, silence here makes all his own; ~- Veiled shapes, with hands upon their lips, .Stand round about his darkened throne. The patient pleading of the trees- How deep it shames the soul's despair! In supplication moveless, mute. They keep their attitude of prayer. — John Vance Cheney, in the Century. THE CANOE TRIP. Old Mr. Bittleston had a charming \house and grounds on the Thames, near *> Marlow, including a pretty little eyot. One sultry afternoon he was. enjoying a placid doze in a shady arbor nekr the water'* edge, when he was aroused by the splashing of oars, and beheld a young man in a boating costume in the act of alighting upon the lawn. Mr. Bittleston sprang to his feet iu an instant, prepared .pressed biro to rejaaia a day in the nei^Mtorho, d, so as to visit the church and other objects of local interest. \No thank you, I'm afraid we must not linger,'\ he said, shaking his host warmly by the hand; \we have our work cut out to row to Oxford and back to town by Saturday. I must think of my compan- ions.\ * % Well, at all events, 'come and have l>reakfast with us to-morrow,\ said the old gentleman. ** We Wist be several stages on our road before your breakfast hour,\ he said, as he saluted the ladies in turn; \ by- the by,\ he added, addressing Mr. Bittle- ston, *' there is one small favor I venture to ask of you. teau here, and May 1 leave a portman fetch it on our way down Friday or Saturday?'' \ Certainly,\ said the old gentleman, promptly. ly bobbing up and down in his excite- ment, to try and catch sight of the boat ahead. In spite of their efforts, however, they found the lock-gates closed against them, and the parson's boat out of siffht. What was more tantalizing, the lock had been emptied by the time they got there, and was waiting a boat which was com- ing up stream. An abrupt turn in the river at a short distance already hid from view the boat just relieved from the lock. •'What a nuisance!''exclaimed Mr. Bit- tleston, mopping his forehead as he stood on the banks of the lock, having taken NEWS AND NOTES FOB WOMEN.

The two side-bars of each of a pair of ordinary sash-frames are divided into two parts vertically, and the part carrying the glass is swiveled or pivoted in the side pieces at a point central to its height. The frame with the glass is held in position by two small bolts m the top rail, which shoot into the side- strips. When the latter fastening is ef- fected the two sashes may slide up and down in the ordinary way.

Under the influence of his wife, Jezebel, he plots to kill his master, and become king of Syria in his stead. This plot is successful, and Hazael is crowned king. This character exactly suits that of \Mac- beth,\ The minor characters can also be 'found in the Bible. Of course, Shaks- peare has altered the words, but the plot and characters are to be found there. Dr. Halsey, in his lectures on Shakspeare at Princeton college, stated that Shaks- peare's regular practice was to study the Bible seven hours a day. There were not so many Bibles in his time as there are now, but although very costly, he had one. and made a daily practice\ of study- ing it. Where Dr. Halsey got his in- formation I do not know, but presume he is correct. Though Shakspeare was undoubtedly a great man, I think he is considerably overrated, so far ss his originality is con- cerned. I think he was not endowed with the genius of originality, but rather with the genius of arranging the writing of those gone before, and rewriting thero ;„ „„ «^-»^: _ ^~i~ —Me». itichardLecr A writer in a juvenile magazine lately gathered a number of dictionary words dfid b ti ll g ctionary words as defined by certain small people, of which the folio win, ig seem genuine: Dust: Mud with the juice squeezed out.

Happening to run across the tes- timony of a Mrs. Dawtey,who had been cured of similar sickness by usinz Hunt's Remedy, we at once procured a bottle of it, and com- menced giving it as directed.

Previous to taking it she was trouble! more or less with short breath, requiring a continuous fanning to keep her alive. This gradually improved as we continued the use of Hunt^s Remedy, and onthe fourth bottle she was able to set up all day. She was bloated terribly in both limbs and body upward to the lungs.
