Mr. Sturgls says: . ... ^ _* Tho world of tho Mediterranean sea. 18 centuries ago, was rich In works of art and decoration beyond our experience and beyond our flights of Imagination. Kw an effort which few of us can make with success to picture the wealth In Beautiful art of a great city of tho empire. Tho marbles have been burned to lime, the bronzes have been molted Into gros sous or their equivalent, tho stuccoes have crumbled from the walls, tho paintings have gone down with their walls to ruin, tho shattered pottery has been used in fill Ing and grading and building, and its re_ malnlng fragments are of no value except for an inscription or an impressed name- mere potsherds, with now and then, a scrap of antiquarian interest The shattered glass alone contains in Its very substance such beauty, and such completeness even in ruin, that itsfrag- ments are treasured up and studied. These broken bits point to a general uso of vessels of decorative glass, used as Wo uso porcelain for tho finer vessels of table and toilet, and also a great abundance of objects of pure ornament, of wall linings and floor coverings inado of tho same splendid material, No other substance is like that, beautiful in itsell', hi Its every essence Fragments of glass have often the value that fragments of pottery sometimes have —tho partial figure, tho incomplete pattern on tho surface- -tmd thi-y have also what no pottery and no other artificial sub stance 1ms—tho beauty wo generally think of as peculiar to natural stones, to agates and to jaspers. As n collector fills his cabinet with pieces of precious and semiprecious stones, with hero and there a p ceo which has, as it happens, a head or a piece of a head carved upon it, BO tho enthusiastic vltreologist collects glass as glass, loving its substance, Its surface, Its colors, its texture, its transluccncy and its opacity, Its set patterns and Its vague cloudings. Hero and there a stamped or a wheel ground pattern adds its own attractiveness, but tho glass itself Is tho thing. Precious and beautiful is glass, even in fragments. _ Shores, Rolling fcttffire ftttd Icebctgs JJake It Dangerous, The most northerly lighthouse on the coast of this continent stands on Belle isle, at the head of tho straits of that name, a little northeast of Newfoundland.

Dr. Beverly Colo is very abscntminded. Though ho has a wonderful faculty foi recollecting faces, ho can never rcmembei a name or date, and this weakness-causes him endless embarrassment. Ho always-calls' in person nt tho brand postofflco for his mail, and tho postal clerk hands it out without a word, as ho knows tho doctor. Colo went to tho office recent ly, aud there was o now faco nt tho win dow. Ho stopped and after a few mo ments' pause inquired: "Any mail for me?" "What name, please?" "Let me see—-ah," and ho racked hi brain, but tho uftmo had escaped him. I confusion ho walked to and fro inth office and was on the point of, going horn in despair when ho saw a friend coming. "Ah, now! have it," ho saidtohimsel "He'll call mo by name." "How uro you, doctor?" was tho friend erecting* Tho doctor was so mad he wouldn't speak to him. Finally ho turned, and seizing tho acquaintance by tho arm demanded:* "What in the devil Is my namo anyway?" 1 'What's tho matter with you? Are you crazy?" . "No, but my name has escaped me. "Haven't you any of your cards?" "By Jove, I never thought of that." He hastily fished out his cardcase, and draw- ins; out a pasteboard read it eagerly. "Colo, Beverly Cole. That's it," and ho got his mail.—San Francisco Post. sailed Belle isle I cauuot say, for even the old navigators had such a horror or it that on their charts they marked it with the figure of a demon. The morning the little mail steamer on which I crnisRcl "down on the Labrador," as the Newfoundlanders say, plunged aud rolled past it through the surge tho rugged mass of rook crouched there as it ready to seize its prey of ships ami hf.mau lives. The stiff, un- heafcl at our distance, flashed around' its base like a long row of glistening teeth. A huge iceberg had drifted in and lay stranded at ono end of the island; far up ou the rocks was tho lighthouse; on a shelf below stood a littlo htit, with provisions, for shipwrecked sailors; the gray morning mists inarle these look heavy and sodden, and altogether this glimpse of Belle isle was the most desolate scene I had ever ho- held. Over our bov? the barren coast of Labrador was faintly outlined, and as tho last lighthouse on tho continent dropped astern I felt that wo were indeed drawing away from civilization, and this feeling was strengthened when, as We turned our prow northward, wo sighted tho vanguard of the seemingly endless procession of huge icebergs drifting slowly down iu single file from the mysterious regions of the north. Wo had met with single bergs along the Newfoundland coast, but off Labra dor tin y Locarno a constant and uuspeak ably graud feature in the seaward view. I doubt if they cau be seen any- vhere else except in arctic and antarctic waters in such numbers, variety aud grandeur. The branch of the gulf stream which pushes its way into the Arctic ocean has sufficient force left when it is reflected by tho frozen northern boundary of that sea to send an icy current down along the Labrador coast. Practically all the bergs that break loose from the ice sheathed nhores of Green land are borne southward by this cur rent. One morning, when I went upon deck, I counted no less than 135 huge pnes. Some of these were great solid blocks of ice; others were arched with numerous Gothic passageways; some reached with spirelike grace high up into the air. All reflected with pris matio glory the rays of the sun.—Gustav Kobbe in St. Nicholas. ABSTRACTS, to SMITH. REAL ESTATE and COLLECTIONS ALGONA, IOWA. A. D.CLARKE & CO. FARM LOAM'S. Alpona. lowti.

At Montoverde, In France, Hannlbal'a war chest turns up full of Torantino coins still worth par after 3,000 years of burial, tho inutul of which they arc composed remaining uncorroded and tho Punic do- vices stamped upon them retaining their primal legibility. They wore probably deposited in tho soil in somo unrecorded season of panic, fiscal or military, and in tho pressure and confusion of aftor events forgotten. If they could have drawn interest during this interval, tho increment would rebuild Carthngp and restore the mosaic pavements and sculptured friezes of tho-temples of Baal and Melkrath and set ndrft oguin the- flotillas of the Byrsa and unroll tho banners of Dido above the citadel. But they appear without usufruct, dim with burial and disuse, and will find their way into niusenrus and repositories of such ware, not helping any modern problem of finance or circulation, but pointing over again tho moral that The bust outlasts the throne, Tho coin, Tiberius, —Now York Tribune. Hard und Bitter Wills. It was remarked by a writer long ago that "there is uo revenge so hard aud bitter as that of an old man," and it is one of the astonishing perversities of many natures that the longer they live the harder they hug their possessions. The most disinterested affection is passed over, the most faithful and most valuable services are slightly and grudgingly rewarded. This mental and moral disease notably afflicts the richest. Tho Ali?ouu ' Marquis d'Aligre was a singular example. His will was concocted with a special desire to disappoint and insult his relatives, friends and servants. To the first it said: "As for you, my relatives who have been so long spelling upon this fortune on which 'I had concentrated all my affections,' you are not going to touch a penny of it, and not one of yon will ho able to boast that you have squandered tho millions which the old Marquis d'Aligre had taken so many years to hoard up." Sir Robert Bevil, one of James is officials, did not oven spare his wife. "I give unto my wifetenne shillings in respect she took her sohnes part against me and did anyniate and comfort him afterwards. These will not be forgotten." Aud the Earl of Stafford, who married tho daughter of the Duo de Gramrnont, wroto: "To the worst of women, Claude Charlotte do Grammont, unfortunately my wife, guilty as she is of all crimes, I leave five and forty brass halfpence, which will buy a pullet for her snppor. A better gift than her father can mako her."—Westminster Review. L. K. GARFIELD, M.
