And the soft sounds that fall upon the ear- Are well accordant to the lovely scene, So soft Silence, herself a listener, Is not disturbed by them; yet so serene That the low whisperings of the winds, I ween, Can scarce be caiwd n zephjr, while the sound Of murmVlDB HppJut c«ft**»* still between. —K«w Orison* TUdCs-Democrat. Roinihdera ft Burns. lu Dumfries oil? cannot look upon a single olden structure, or follow with the eye any close, wynd, vennell or street, without knowing that at some time it was more familiar to Burns than any portion of the old city is to any one of its inhabitants today. In the ancient Bank street house where he first lived in Dumfries, in the three tiny apartments, more than one-third of the more than 100 poems he produced in Dumfries were composed. Then in the Mill, now Burns, street home, which, was his last, the remainder were given birth. Among these were "Auld Lang Syne," "My Wife's a Winsome Wee Thing," "The Soldier's Return," "Willie Wastle," "Contented wi' Little, and Cantie wi' Mair," "Thou Hast Left Me Ever, Jamie," "Ye Banks and Braes o' Bonnie Doon," "My Love Is Like a Red, Red Rose," "My Heart Is Sair, I Daurna Tell," "O Wert Thou in the Cauld Blast," "Duncan Gray," "Flow Gently, Sweet Afton," and that grand martial ode, "Bruce's Address." The old, though still spruce, King's Arms inn could never have so long stood the assaults of time and tourists had not Burns, in a forgivably irreverent and delicious mood, scratched upon its window pane. — Cor. New York Commercial Advertiser. Fatting Gold on Books. In a room at the government printing office adjoining the one in which a drawer full of gold is kept, you can see a man putting on gold titles on superb department ledgers and such things altogether by hand. He lays the pieces of gold foil on the backs of the bound and completed books, and burns the lettering fast with little wooden handled dies that lie keeps heated in a small gas stove. It requires great skill to get the titles perfectly straight and symmetrical, though a black silk thre%d is used to make preliminary lines across the gold film for a guide. Finally the gold is rubbed off with a leather tipped stick and with burnt rubber. Real gold is only used in this way for particularly fine books. Designs and lettering of the sort for ordinary volumes are done at the government printing office in nearly tho same manner, but with a yellow composition called "German metal," which looks very much like the gold and is decidedly cheaper. No trouble is taken to save the wastage, and each book cover, after being stamped by the hot die, is simply put through, a brushing machine. — Washington Star. Tho Andes Sinking. The startling announcement is made that the Andes are slowly sinking into the earth's crust. As proof of this La Gazette Geographique says that Quito was 9,596 feet above the level of the sea in 1745; in 1800 it was only 9,570; in 1881, 9,567, having sunk twenty-six feet during the fifty-five years following 1745, and but three feet during the thirty-one years which intervened between 1800 and 1831. In 1868 the city's level had been reduced to 9,530 feet above the level of the Pacific. To sum up the total, we find that Ecuador's capital has sunk seventy-six feet in 133 years. Antisana's farm, the highest inhabited spot on the Andes (4,000 feet higher than Quito, the highest city on the globe), is said by the same authority to be 318 feet lower than it was in 1745. .. to the great floors where tne load" is assorted in piles according to grade, having beefc weighed first tthile oft the truck.

They are divided into two series of five each, and public sales are conducted in two at the same tiine. Under the direction of the Tobacco Exchange the order of sales ia arranged. Placards are posted at different points, "First sale at Neal's," "Second sale at Acree's," and so on, each warehouse talcing its assigned tarn until nil five have sold out—first today, the last to-morrow. Each ware house has its own auctioneer, clerks, and most of the firms buying having two sets of buyers to attend on the two circuits.—Cor. Washington Post. Compressed Air Torpedo. Still another torpedo, this one the invention of an Austrian count, Buonacorsi by name, has made its appearance in the European naval and military world. According to official and private reports of the trials of this instrument they were eminently successful, giving results superior even to those obtained from the Whitehead. The motive power is compressed air, acting directly from a reservoir upon the propeller without any assistance or intervention from machinery. The propulsion is effected by twin screws working inversely and giving a velocity greater and more continuous, it is contended, than any obtained in other torpedoes. One remarkable feature of this invention is tho faculty of automatic guidance, which enables it to avoid protective nets and shields, and to dive any distance before rising to eivo its blow.—Exchange.

Do not gather flowers while the sun is shining upon them, but choose instead the early morning, or the hour after the eun has gone down. Avoid pulling or tearing from the plant; cut with sharp scissors or a knife, and in the case of varieties having a large stalk or stem rub a little dirt over the wound. Always leave as long a stem as possible, not to interfere with other buds or blossoms.—John Richards in Jenness-Miller Magazine. It is not generally known that a single mouse turned loose in a grocery window will catch more flies in a single evening than fly paper catches all day, and besides, he eats them, and don't leave them lying around loose. Don't grudge the mouse his little mischief; he is a good fiy and roach exterminator. fl Remarkable Facts. Heart disease la usually supposed to be Incurable, but wlien properly treated a large proportion ol cases can be cured. Thus Mrs. Elmlra Hatch of Elttliart, Ind., and Mary L. Baker of Ovid, Mich, were cured after suffering 20 years. 8.0. LJnbur- ger, druggist at San Jose, Cal., says that Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure, which cured the former, "worked wonders for his wife."

There is nothing in the world of pleasure and recreation to compare with the beautiful devotion that is paid the old Hebrew people by their children and grandchildren at the various summer resorts. A rude remark is never made in their hearing, nor a disrespectful word uttered to aged mother or father. The gentle yielding of easy chairs, the offering of choice things to eat and drink, the last consideration of self where there is a drive or sail for a limited number, and the, graceful anticipation of creature comforts are attributes of the children to which the filial respect of the Christian is not approachable.— New York World. A Maine Man's Trunk. I was talking with one of the old settlers the other day, and he said; "Don't know Hen Jones, do you? Wall, when you see him you'll know him; he's got the damdest nose on him that you ever seed on a live being, T'other day I see Hen coming down hill into the village, and he was driving a horse with one hand and makin' queer motions with t'other.
