So anxious is the Columbian to

something be said alter the delegation shall have returned and reported,

biased point of view, on the text furnished by the brief and fragmentary

passed between Edmonds and Horlick which would Induce the latter

Firing a  Distreaa Signal.
When a ship does not carry a can
non or mortar with which she can fire
distress signals, a metal socket on the
bridge or poop rail is used for that
purpose. Into the socket a detonating
rocket is placed, and inside this is a
tiring tube. A lanyard is booked on
to the tube, and a man, by giving thej lool
lanyard a sharp jerk, explodes, the
rocket. It contains a high eiplosi e
and on leaving the rail gives a lo al
report and another on reaching its
highest altitude. Both reports are as
loud as the report of a twelve pounder
cannon, 'i'he socket is slipped in the
rail at an angle to prevent the rocket
touching the rigging.

From  Pnffnn Rites,
The people of Varna, on the coast of
the Black sea. ia Bulgaria, have a singular custom which they observe nl
the leasl of the Epiphany, which takes
place on Jan. ii. 'i'he clergy, both
Creeks and   Bulgarians, accompanied
by  an  Immcuso crowd, go to  Ibe sea-
shorc, carrying with ihem a wooden
cross. Tbe cross is thrown by the
clergy into the sea. and thereupon the
strongest swimmers jump iu after it.
The best swimmer gets It, of course,
and brings it in triumph to shore.
Tbe Varna people have a still more
singular sail water custom on the same
day. After dark at night all the newly
married men in Hie town are conducted, with bands of music and singing,
to the shore and made to take three
successive plunges Into the Icy water.
They are then conducted home, where
their brides, accompanied by their relatives and friends, have been awaiting
them In state. After this Ihere is feasting and merry making. These singular
customs are believed to have a Pagan

*h�� Ancients ln.lulKeii In Them �����
an  Extravagant  Ocitrff.
The use of perrume was indulged In
to such an extravagant degree by the
ancients that some of the more ascetic
men had good reason to denounce it.
Solon issued an edict prohibiting Its
sale in Athens. Julius Caesar and Lu-
cinus, who were Roman consuls In
565, published a law forbidding the
sale of exotics iu that city, and by
the laws of Lycurgus perfumers were
expelled from Sparta as being wasters of oil nnd encouragers of sensuous-
ness. Clearehus wrote against the excessive use of unguents, and Socrates
declaimed against tbem In strong
terms, preferring, he said, "the smell
of healthy toil and the perfume of a
good and manly life." It was customary at festivals to pass round to the
guests perfumes served in alabaster
boxes and vessels of gold. At one of
these feasts CynulCUS, who loved to
deride the youth for tbe use of perfumes, was made a butt for their ridicule. Some mischievous youth anointed tbe cynic with much ointment,
pouring it lavishly over llis head nnd
face. When be awoke he exclaimed
ln an angry voice: "What Is this? Oh,
Hercules, will not some one come with
a sponge and wipe my face, which is
thus polluted with a lot nf dirt?"
At the-Syrian banquets It was usual
for tbe slaves to come in with bladders
full of Babylonian perfumes and bo-
dew the garlands and walls and hangings anil till the balls with delicious
fragrance. In some of tbe more modern feasts statues and ornaments were
provided with jets which threw nut
diluted essences ami attars.���London

Curiously  enough, that article, uow
considered   almost   Indispensable,   the

children and was only adopted by elder
members of the family about the mid-;

the grown people In place of napkins, i
When they did begin to use napkins'
they placed tbem Brst on the shoulder,
then ou the left arm and finally tied
them about tbe neck. A French writer
who evidently was conservative and
did not welcome the napkin kindly re
cords with scorn:
"The napkin is placed under the chin
and fastened in the back, as if one
were going to be shaved. A person told
me that he wore his that way that he
might not soil his beautiful frills."
It was a difficult matter to tie the
two corners In the back, and it is said
that thence originated our expression :
for straitened circumstances, "Hard to
make both ends meet." This custom
led to the habit of table waiters carrying a napkin on the left arm.

This at tirst looks like a literary parallel to Swift's well known fortuitous

A Flagrant Breach uf Dlnelp""* That
Wai Uroteeflne Enough to Make the
General Who Mever Laughed Hoar
In Spite of Hi* Grlmneaa.
General Buell, whose timely arrival
at Shiloh, some military critics hold,
saved General Grant from de'eat, was
known in the old army as "the man
who can't laugh." General Buell was
not grave merely; he was grim. Yet
two yeurllng cadets at West Point
made General Buell break a record.
It was hot on the plateau above tbe
waters of the Hudson, hotter than tbe
cheek of a flehlplece that bus been In
action, so hot that the leaves ou the
elm tree shriveled aud the feet of the
pacing sentries burned from contact
with the only pave-* path on the government reservation.
The plebes had reported and were
quartered In two divisions of barracks,
the upper class men having been turned out to share quarters with their
comrades In the other divisions.
Tbe June examinations were on.
The board of visitors, of which General Buell was a member, bud paid its
perfunctory visits to mess ball, to academic   building  and   to  barracks.     It
was 10 o'clock in  Hi orniug.    Two
cadets bud been thrown by fate and
by the arrival of the plebes Into the
same room of tbe fifth division of barracks. Tbe thermometer ln the shade
of the guardhouse registered 99 degress. In the room In which the two
cadets were quartered doubtless It
stood in degrees higher.
There hud been one morning inspection of quarters by an army officer, and
the two yearlings, gasping for breath
ln a room Into which the sun beat with
no regard for cadet feelings, bad every
reason to believe that there would be
no further Inspections that morning.
They bad stood the ordeal of the examining board at 9 o'clock, and, with no
studies in baud, they thought they were
safe until the first call for dinner.
By tbe law of the academy every
cadet In quarters was to be in full dress
uniform until 11 o'clock. He was not
allowed tn smoke, tfls bedding was to
be neatly piled nt the bend of his bunk.
In other words, the cadet room and the
cadet's person were to be properly ordered and properly arrayed for Inspection.
"It's hot." said the cadet who was to
become an artillery officer.
"It's hotter than that," said bis comrade.
"Let's strip," sr.ld tbe one.
"Done," said the other.
And forthwith they stripped. Then
the mattresses were pulled from the
bunks and thrown under the window,
through which occasionally came a
whiff ot breeze, grateful though heat
"I'd like to smoke," said the future
artilleryman as be threw himself on
oue of tbe mattresses.
"I'm going to smoke," said his comrade.
And Instanter pipes were lighted, nnd
the room began filling with fragrant
blue fog.
There was a clink of a swonl bean'.
In the hallway. Its sound brought eon-
gternatlon. An Inspection was on. Before the two yearlings bad time to
thiuk there was a rap. nnd the door
was thrown open, and In came, not tbe
ordinary second lieutenant Inspecting
officer, but Lieutenant Colonel Henry
M. Lazelle, commandant of cadets, and
Major General Don Carlos Buell, United States army.
Discipline strikes In. Tbe two culprit cadets sprang tn attention instantly, heels together, arms hanging
naturally and the little fingers where
the seams nf the trousers would have
b?en if they'd had any trousers on.
The future artilleryman was clothed
lu one sock, and in this attire ho was
one sock the belter of his comrade.
They stood there rigid. The position
of a soldier was never better maintained. Commandant Lazelle turned
purple with rage at this graceless
breach of discipline actually paraded
before a major general of the United
states army and a member of the
board of visitors.
The cadet who one day was to command a battery bad dropped bis pipe.
The hot bowl touched his great loe,
ami the burning was too much for
even a soldier's stolidity, and he emitted a very boylike "Ouch!"
General Don Carlos Buell took In the
spectacle ami all the glorious humor
of the situation, His griinuess was
not proof against such a sight as this.
He leaned hack ngalnsl a table and
roared, and not even the wrath ln the
commandant's face could check his
"Come, general." said ihe commandant; "Iel us go. I shall report thesi.
young men fur three flagrant violations m' ih,. rules of the academy."
General Buell looked at the guilty
ones and roared again. Tbe commandant led the way out of tbe room, bnt
tbe culprits beard Ibe laugh nf Ituell
all the way through the hall, across
the area of barracks, until finally It
came as a sorl of chuckling echo from
tbe office cil' Ibe guardhouse.
The culprits were confronted with
tbe probability <tf ahout three months'
confinement to qunrters and about
fifty tours of extra guard duty as a result of their disregard for discipline.
They wero In the depths for twenty-
four hours, and then the list of the
day's delinquents was read, and, lo,
their names did nol appearl
General Don Carlos Ituell had hno'
tbe laugh of bis lifetime, and because
of tbe joy of It be had asked the corn-
manilant to spare tbe Offenders.���Chb

The Wind In the Autumn Urallr llu
Very Little lo llu With It.
When the storm clouds gather behind
the hrown autumnal woods aad cold
winds begin to blow, then the bright
leaves coin.- drifting iwn ia fluttering;
fast thickening Bhowera until it almosl
seems as if the wind were the active
agent and actually tore the leaves fr.uu
the trees. This, of course, is not the
case. The loaf fall only becomes possible after a loii^ preparation on tbe part
of tbe tree, which forms a peculiar
layer of evils in each leaf stem called
the cleavage plate.
This cleavage plate, or separation
layer, consist* of a section of loosely
attached thin walled cells with a few
strands of stronger woody tiber ia
among them, so, ia tbe early autumn,
although the leaves appear as firmly
attached us ever before, they are really
only held on the tree by these few
woody strands aud the outer brittle
skin or epidermis of the stem. Now
only a slight shock or wind flurry is
sufficient to break tbe fragile support
and bring the leaves in showers to t'aa
ground. We may see these woody
strands broken through in the leaf scar
of the horse chestnut, where they appear as little rounded projections on
tiie broken urface and are often spoken of from their fancied resemblance
to the nails of a horseshoe. The hick
ory and ash among other trees hav>��
similar markings ou their leaf scars
and from the same cause. On the root
of the wild siirsapurilla, which projects
just above the ground, a like scries of
little projections will be seen upon the
ringlike sear which surrounds the bud
where the leaf stalk has Just separated.
Often the leaves separate and fa\'l

own weight Is sutlieient to break tho
frail support. These hushed and supremely tranquil days we all remember, when our October walks are accompanied by the soft, small sounds o.'
falling leaves, by the rustlings ancl dry
