We went a great deal farther than
we expected, and suddenly found our-

were nearly frightened out of our '

saw two wee bits of cubs -the cutest
little things in the world—lying at

tampered up to the very top of a tall
tree that grew near by.
Mary and I did want those cubs
so badly,but we were too badly scared

minutes, when Mary suddenly said it

The old bear was shot and Lion was

Sand for tlu> < ItllUren.
One of the cleanest and nicest play-
things in the world for a little child is
sand. In summer a load of it dumped
in a clean spot in the bac. yard will
amuse the little ones for hours each
day. They love to shovel it, build
miniature forts, make gardens, with
grass or plants, and dig well . Washed
sand is as clean as sawdust , and a
child can pla.v in it. in its white frocks
and not soil its clothes. For winter
playing a bushel of sarid can bo kept
just outside the door. A shallow box
of a few inches in depth and two or
three fee; square can be easily made.
Spread a lot of newspaper ■ on the
floor, set the box in the middle, fill it
with sand and let the children loose.
Teach them not to get off the news-
papers with it. and they will play all
day in it and not litter the house half

Shortly after the death of General
Grant, a lady who had known him
personally happened to meet General
Dent, Mrs. Grant's brother, in a Wash-
ington street car. The conversation
naturally turned on General Grant,
and, referring to his remarkable sim-
plicity and directness, both in talk-
ing aud writing, she quoted tho line,
"Let us have peace."
General Dent said: "I was present
when he wrote that. 1 have to get
out here, but when I see you again I
will tell you about it."
General Dent did not, however, wait
to see her, but the next day sent the
following,written in pencil on a sheet
of note paper, which the recipieut
keeps as a treasured memory of Gen-
eral Grant. The following is a ver-
| bat mi copy:

convention for the office of president

in a conversational toue replied, ac-
cepting the nomination, and express-
ing his appreciation of the honor, and
then remarked that he would com-
municate his acceptance to the com-
mittee in writing After a pleasant,
half hour's chat General Hawley and
the committee departed. The next
morning, fearing that the committee
was being delayed, I asked tho gen-
eral if he had sent them the written
communication he had promised. Ha
replied no, but he would do it now.
Turning to his desk he wrote without
hesitation his letter (if acceptance.
All of his staff had in the meantime
