THE READING DAILY TIMES AND DISPATCH, READING, PENNA. 6 A Bit of Pleasant ttlayside Gossip. THE EARTH NEVER OLD. Therefore am I still a lover of the mmdmva and the woods; the moun tains and all that we behold upon this green earth." Wordsworth. The dear old earth is never old to me Its hills and dales and lawns and wind - ini; lead: Woodland and stream and lake and emerald sea . Green meads and fertile fields and fruitful tree. The odorous breath of pines so fresh and free The nectared rivers winding pleasantly; The far and faint aerial minstrelsy That to the spirit's ear is ecstasy. The mountains towering in their majesty. The wondrous skies that overcanopy; The forests dense, the birds' rich melody. The cadence of the breeze's weird monody, The fleeting days and nights' antiphony, eliding into the vast infinity; The changing seasons' passing mystery. Hounding the recurrent year's symmetry. The wayward spring's coquettish witchery; Resplendent summer's voluptuous beauty; The glorious autumn's august alchemy, An winter's hyperborian apogee! David James Evans. . The discussion over Burns' "Comin' Thro' the Rye" is again revived in England. Mr. Walter M. Graham Easton favors the river theory, and in this way: "That Burns referred to the Rye Water, a stream in the Cunnynghame division of Ayrshire, and not. as generally supposed, to a field of rye grain, is almost certain. The question has several times been raised, and if it has only now begun to exercise the New York mind, for once our American cous ins have not been up to date. This beautiful stream is justiof the kind that would attract the poet's attention, especially from where at Cunnynghame - Baidland to the Ryr - field Woods, it runs through a deep f imantie glen, the banks of which are clothed with a natural wooding of c ak, hazel, ash, and thorn. In early summer especially, when decked out with a profusion of mayflower, honeysuckle, and wild roses the glen presents a picture difficult to beat of its kind. At Ryefield most of my youth was spent, and well do I remember the 'steppin' stanes' below the slope from there, and leading from' the village of Diakemyre (half a mile from the town of Dairy) to the Ryesholme sil' - These stones were associated by old country folk, and many a more modern lass have I seen 'kilt her coats' well clear of her bare 'trilbies' while coming. through the Rye here. My impression regarding the stones and the popular song I communicated two or three years ago to the Rev. James B. Johnston. Falkirk, author of 'Place Names of Scotland,' Whether the crossing is still there I cannot say, not having bpon in the neighborhood for over ten years. In that time a mill v;is extended ab'iut the spot, so that there may now bo no such 'thoroughfare' for lasses 'comin' frae the toon.' Jn the same manner as people argue whether 'Bonnie Dundee' refers to the town of the name or (Taverhouse's handsome features, so doubtless will they go fighting over this point. Old ideas based on nothing, or prejudices, are not easily got rid of. But the bal ance of evidence. I think, is in favor of the stream, and not the grain. Why, indeed, should a girl systematically take a route through a field of wet - growing crop? 'Jenny's seldom dry.' Grain is not grown in glens, and there is direct mention of a glen in the song, by implication. In conjunction with the name of the stream, that of the live." In legendary times, which now Investigation mocks. We're toid of how the lorelei sang To lure men on the rocks. We do things in a different way From what they did them then; For nowadays the siren sings To lure the rocks from men. One of the most popular barber ' shops in the business centre of Philadelphia, says the Record, is glorified by its proprietor as being almost free from objectionable and disagreeable customers. The boss barber prides himself on tho fact that all of his patrons are good fellows, and no other kind are wanted. When asked recently how he managed to have so few growlers and kickers, he said: "The secret is simply this: If an outsider comes into my shop and I find him undesirable I get rid of him speedily. If he pays his check with a quarter or over, I give him ten cents more - change than is coming to him. That generally keeps him away, as growlers are usually mean men, and they stay away for fear of being asked for the over change. If the mean man just merely pays for his shave, the next time he comes in I ask him if I did not over pay him in making change, in such a way that he pets mad and stays away. These are the methods with which I keep the objectionable element out of . my shop, and they work every time." ' The heart that trusts forever sings And feels as light as it had wings, A well of peace within it springs, Come good or ill, vWhate'er today, tomorrow brings, It is His will. J. Williams. It is notorious that cigarettes cause j insanity. To hear cigarette smokers i taiK or tneir vice is a proof or this. A prominent journalist, sane enough on other subjects, said idiotically at a dinner party, as he consumed the cigarettes of Egypt: "I smoke a pipe a great deal now. I am breaking away from cigarettes by degrees. From 4f) a day I have gotten down to five or six." In a well - known cigarette smoker's coma a kind ot trance ne listened to i the praises of a young woman for a , while, and then resumed: "My doctor tells me that a pipe is more injurious 'f than a cigarette if you Inhale the Bmoke ; in each case, as I do always." He be - j tame comatose again, and another man, a lnwyer, snid: "I abandoned cigarettes the first of the year. I smoke Pittsburg stogies, which are more nutritious. Cigarettes robbed me of all will power. I could not resolve to do anything. Whenever firmness was demanded I wns lest. That is why I gave the things tin." The young woman said: I "if cigarettes took your will power j away, whence came the will power with I which you abandoned them?" There - ' hoot tt - '"wvit civilised the subject. i Philadelphia Record.

Pinkham'a Vegetable Compound Cures Them Two Letter, from Women. "Dear Mrs. Pinkham: I write to tell you of the good Lydia E. Pink - ham's Vegetable Compound has done me. I was sick in bed about five weeks. The right side of my abdomen pained me and was so swollen and sore that I could not walk. Tho doctor told my husband I would have to undergo an operation. This I refused to do until I had given your medicine a trial, lie' fore I had taken one bottle the swelling began to disappear. I cou - . i . uuueu wj use i.Mu your medicine until the swelling was entirely gone. When the doctor came he was very much surprised to see me so much better. '1Wbs. Mary Smith, Arlington, Iowa. " Dear Mrs. Pixkham: I was sick for two years with falling of the womb, and in flammation of the ovaries and bladder. I was bloated very badly. My left limb would swell so I could not step on my foot. I had such bearing down pains I could not straighten up or walk across the room and such shootincpains would go through me that I thought I could nf(i;, xi.. i . i , not stand it. My mother got me a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound and told me to try it. I took six bottles and now, thanks to your wonderful medicine, I am a well woman." Mrs. Elsie Bryan, Otisville, Mich. SHORT STORIES FOR THE "TIMES " INNOCENT CONVICT WHO THOUGHT HIS IMPRISONMENT EVENED UP MATTERS. A volume might be written on tli - wonderful work done by Mrs. Maud Ballington Booth among the convicts in the New York state prisons, relates the Saturday Evening Post. On the banks of the Hudson she conducts a cheerful home, called Hope Hall, where the reformed c invict finds an opportunity to rehabilitate himself and to obtain some preparation for leading an honest life. Through this agency hundreds of men have been made into upright and law - abiding citizens. Life in these moral deeps is not devoid of humorous lights. Once Mrs. Booth and her aids had won the confidence of a prisoner who was feared by all his companions. One day In speaking of his past he told them that he was absolutely innocent of the charge for which he was suffering imprisonment, and he thanked Mrs. Booth for some reading matter she had brought him. "I have got witnesses to prove my innocence, even if they are in prison now," he asserted. "Why don't you try to secure a new trial?" "Well, you see," he replied, after a little pause, "I was acquitted of a number of charges where I was guilty, and so when I was convicted of something I never did I said to myself, 'It's just about even balance,' and I took my medicine, without any kicking." SENATOR VEST AND THE STOLEN PIGS. A story that Senator Vest told related to his candidacy of the Legislature in 1S61 against A. S. Walker, says the St. Louis Republic. The canvass was exceedingly exciting because of the near approach of the war, and all the questions incident to it were discussed with much animation. Charges and counter charges were made. Both sides knew that about six votes either way would determine the contest, and on the day before election Walker raised the point on Vest that he had stolen some pigs. The only way that Vest could meet the charsre was to acknowledge smilingly that he had the pigs in his pen and in his possession. If he had gone further and said that he had bought them which they hoped he would do they had witnesses to show that he had not bought them, but Vest was too shrewd to be caught in the trap and turned the accusation off with a laugh and the remark: "One can't account for the way his boys get pigs.'" LAW AND WAR REVERSED. A characteristic story of Joubert comes from Durban, says the Newcastle (Eng.) Chronicle. In the early days of the present campign one of the Free Staters, with the freedom of speech habitual between men and commanders in the Boer ranks, ventured to question the policy of invading Natal. In entering the enemy's territory there was, he suggested, an element of rashness that was hardly in keeping with the cautiousness of an old lawyer alluding to Jouhert's early forensic career. "There is a great difference," replied the Boer general, "between a battle in a court of law and a battle In the field, la the former the advantage. Is with the man who Bpeaks last; in the latter it is with the man who strikes first." Canadian exports wf butter in 1S97 were pounds; last year 28,009, - 296 pound. The total expenditures by the United States government during the war with Spain and a a result of it up to the present time are 55,000,000. It is estimated that there are 50,000 settlers more than last year in Manitoba and the Territories, and of these - about 1;,000 are Amerieans, PREVENTED AVI!

White, with a capable company, will be at the Academy this afternoon and evening, and "Faust" will be witnessed by liberal - sized audiences. The "Mephisto" of Mr. White favorably sustains comparison with other Impersona tions of the character. Miss Verne portrays the role of "Marguerite" with artistic tact and succeeds in winning the audience completely. "Faust," by Frank McDonald, is strong and Impressive, and his emotion Is genuine.
