If    He Follows    Tried    Principles the  Average Oarsman Can Become Proficient.  From N--w York Times.  If ike embryo oarsman should take seriously all that is fcaid about thj diffvr-  enoi> between the so-c Hed Engl sb long  stroke and the shorter and quicker American stroke, he never would become pro-  . ficknr. As a matter ot fact, there is as  muck Short rowing in England as there  is in this country'. The difference is n< t  na i->na]r but t>okly one between good  rowing and b.d row.ng. In theory th re  ia only oue perfect stroke, and eniy  co.ich who uuderwt.ndc his bu-ine^s  knows it, but tbe difficulty ie ia imp.rt-  ing the kuowlcdge and putting it iu to-  practice.v-.'  A laug stroke is not necessarily a slow  -one,, though it is n >t possible to exc ed  a certain limit without sacrificing length,  on account of the time mc asarily consumed in the different operations con-  nectid with, the beginning, finish and recovery.  There is nothing gained by a good b -  g'nniug if the m-mentum acq;iri-d is to  be let go of at once. As long as the  ���������trokc ia held en to, the pace -w.U cou-  tinuj without extra exertion, !;ut immediately the oars are taken out of the  watgjC'-vlKft;-. speed begins to slacken, and  the,:ro;<ii:.;ngr'forwaTd^thspfc;:-invariably ac-  c.>n p niee' abort'rowing, bringw-the. ;b������at  tha d fferent elylee of strok s. There  are so many strokes nowadays that the  vaxi us coaches' names have been attached to a 'certiin sryle ot rowing, which  in some minor detail differ from the re-  gu'fltion style of row.ng, which, after  all the succe sfu] craw ad -p*r, allowing  that it haj> tried a variety of ttrokes xm-  succeebfuUy. A fow y<jars .-go most  every crew was rowing w'i it w.is k lown  as the Cook slrok", with more or les^?  modifica ions, and unti aft r Yale's tin*  successful contention against the E:ig!ish  c-ews on the Thames, the average oirs-^ ,  man thought it was imivosbible to row  any other but the so-called Cook st -ok \  When Bob Cook, Yale's' famous rowing  coach, returned from England after the  American crew was beaten, he acknowledged that his theory w������is wrong in several technical parts, and advised the  adoption of the stroke as old as rowing,  with 'the additional points made necessary by the advent of the sliding seat.  If a crew wi h the n^c ssiry p"iys:c 1  qualifications  could     follow ' the   salient  particulars in a btroke that will send a;  boat along as fast, as it is possible 11 do.  with oars, it would be only a question of  strength and endurance as to the winner.  This stroke embodies the following poin V ;  In the catch slide well up, back etraig"' -%  chest thro\yn out, arms straight, slightly a  bent over.    This will give a reach of six'  inches beyond the toes,  and places^ihe"  back in proper angle for a quick he.i /e,' *  or snap, as it is more generally callecl. ' "',  The legs are still held in their,position*   '  while the body is  thrown back'4with' a'  quick   snapf    This  gives   a   firm   catch.  Then the legs come in for the long shove, ,  with the arms still straight. ' '  ;   When tbe slide  is done the arm stiU  -straight, close to the side, finishing four  inches from the'stomach, with a-quick-  drop of the hands. - The holding oh of the  arms to  the' body and legs is done^ to  stop the settling of the boat. ..On    th������.  recovery the body is still straight.    Th������/  arms after the quick drop are shot out  straight. ..Ten the body drops over quick- L  ly after'the arms.    The body bends for- .  ward and ihe legsjd-aw up si >wly so ;-~a  not to stop the run of the boat, and givos,  the lungs a chauce\to fill for the next ^  -stroke.'      v     " <        '  This (makes 'the" stroke  graceful, and  ^enay'j;. the'back1 and legs do the < lifth-g-' ���������  'cTwJUttftthel stpmach^ec, "us������,the; bend'-is. -  from the hips.   "The head is at all;"times'  erect, as the head plays a prominent pu\ fr  in the stroke. , "' \  While this stroke is tlie only one for   -  crews; in' the opinion of   most coachen������ '  the rigging of the boat is' one of the mo.-t  important points to be looked after. , The  angle of the oar in putting in and out of   '  the water to get the power in the rignt  place,  the angle  of the  footboards,  the*-  height of the seats,     and    many  other   .  things combine to make speedy and easy  rowing. '  The average oaxsman imagines that he  lifts on the. end of his oar about 20ft  pound-������ though for a fact he does not lh������  half that much, but even such a pu������l  would bend his oar four and one-half- ���������  inches out of the true, which is nidre-  than any oar is sprung during the prW  gress of a Tace. Any man lifting DO  pounds on board will pull 127 pounds ������n>  the fulcrum and 37 pound"? on the blade,  which would spring a good stiff oar three  inches. By these figures it will be seen  that it will take eight men to lift 720  pounds on the handles, 1,016 pounds on.  the fulcrum, and 29G pounds on the-blade.  This shows if the rigging is not properly  adjusted for a good lift and the oar is not  bent how little power is really being  put into a stioke. Eight men lifting the '  above weigLt at tlrny-four strokes to tbe  minute under fair conditions will row a  mile and a hall eclos* to seven minutes.  AN INVADING ARMY.

The long  stKk;y ;iff the 'vindication-of the sliding  seat,'and the object of every coach should  be   to   attain  the  maximum   of  length  tiusion is repulsive to the almond   I wish the minimum of effort.  Coachere frequently overlook th' fac*  eyied^ race, who look'upbju the "foreign devil" aione as much to hp  dreaded as is his .Satanic.majesty,  of Bible lore to the Christian world.  These/ no doubt, well-intentioned  missionaries find it difficult to op-  perate on the Chinaman or woman  that a 140-pound man cann<t drive a  five-'nch blade through the w -ter as f;:st  as a man weighting 168 p-vund*. They  apparently do not understand why the  lighter man rows short, or is late at the  finish.

The color of paper for parlor or sitting'room'" should be resoseful and un-  "stimulatrtig aud never dark. -To select  a large figure or one showing groat  contni-sts is .a mistake.    In regard  to  ' color, everything depends on the location ��������� of the room and the amount of  light it receives.; A long, narrow room,  lighted only from the north end. needs  a lighter, brighter wall than a south  room having three or four windows.  Iu the first case yeKow is needed, and  oue can hardly get too much of it.  Que of the first living decorators covered -such a room with brilliant golden  yellow,, the ceiling only toned down to  ,a cream. It was an immense success.  Such -a color on a north room sounds  more,gorgeous -than It really is. Nothing can be more brilliant than the suu-  "light.' and yellow paint or paper is the  nearest similitude to that.  In regard io figure, it Is a great mistake to. select that'obtrusive-or cou-  ���������vtanning a variety of colors.

Indeed,  she was so diverted even by- her dearest  friends that she made herself rather unpopular.-   People wanted to like her, but  it was difficult when she was laughing at  them.   They always forgave her, however, when she laughed at some one else.  And  without reservation they admitted  Jthat she was the brightest girl in town*  So they made a great lamenting when she  left  there, with   her  family���������her  family  ,,was   more  or  less of .an   incident���������and  ..came  to   Chicago.,* .Lucy  was  sorry  to  1  Ieavethe little town,too, when she found  that she would be lamented.    She began  to attach' some importance to herself, a  thing she had previously failed1 to do because of  nil the absurd  creatures   in a,  world of absurdity she had  seemed the  most' ridiculous.  " If she had entertained  an ambition, she'laughed herself out of-  it. ' Her attitude toward herself, as1 'well  as   toward   the   world,   was - that   of   a  mocker.    And if a ray of sentiment dared  to, find its way into her mental compound  she gave chase to it with'derisive mirth.  c    She did whatever she attempted  well.  In. the village there had been only the  home duties to offer vent to her activity,  and she excelled in those.    When other,  'girls   blundered "in - breadmaking.   Lucy  turned   out  white  arid   feathery   loaves.  When   experienced   housewives   fretted  about the monotony of fare, Lucy invented new' dishes. * She could make'dresses  and embroider, and mow the lawn, and'  curry the horse and drive a. nail.    Oddly  . enough,  none of these  things, had  satis-'  tied her���������not even the drawing of  nails.  They had' not seemed  worth   while,  and  . Bhe had, not been interestedl in her own  achievements, but when she got to  Chicago and found what an awful hurry everybody was in she got in a hurry, too,  though she laughed all  the  time at the  senseless fret and rush and made caricatures  of   Chicago  street   scenes  on   the  edges of her schoolbooks.  , She, who had  been an indifferent student, took a fancy  to   hustle   herself   through   high   school,  and,- that .over,   she cast  about  her  for  / some further fields of work.    She had decided to become a part of the breathless  and preposterous procession.  She went around and looked at the  city and made up her mind about men  and women and business and politics and  religion with the splendid ease and dogmatism of the young. She sent away a  number of ardent lovers.  "Love?" said  Luey.     "It's an illusion.  Any one over 40 will tell you that."  '  "But you are under 20," said one of the  protesting ones.  "An accident!".cried Lucy. "A mere  blunder on my part. It will take me 20  years of my life to rectify it, and I shall  be so busy doing it that I really shall be  able to think of nothing else."  To herself she said:  "When I marry, it shall be for���������for  reasons of state, so' to speak. I shall  marry a capable, brilliant, physically perfect man. I believe in the survival of the  fittest. I believe in the selection of species. This girlish sentiment that entraps  other girls shall not waylay me."  And for once she did not know that she  was amusing.  One morning she awoke with an idea.  "I am going to be a' nurse." she said.  The more she thought of the idea the better  she   was  pleased.     For   what   other  purpose   had   that   magnificently, strong ;  body been given her?    She felt as if ��������� she-,  could radiate strength and courage.    She i  was taken for probation on'the merits of  her general bearing and intelligence.   .  ;"But I'm afraid you are too fond of excitement." the head nurse said kindly.  "You seem to have high spirits. I fear  you will not be able to stand the discipline and the confinement."  But it seemed to Lucy the place for  high spirits: It appeared to be, moreover, the most exciting of places���������as stirring and vital as a battlefield. Here were  reai tragedies, not mimic ones. Here was  the actual heroism. She was interested  to absorption. There was. moreover,  plenty to laugh at���������the pomposity of the  doctors, the solemn reverence with which  they regarded themselves even in the  face of outrageous blunders and erroneous diagnoses and futile experiments, the  hypochondriacal whims of the patients,  the dry sloughing off of all moral responsibility on the part of the nurses, who  came to regard themselves as automata  set in motion by the physicians. This  phase of the comedy humane was deliriously funny to Lucy. She made herself  both friends and enemies by her ill advised merriment.  "Doctors are absurd," she commented  frequently. "I have never seen anything  so owlish and so ineffective as doctors.  The way they set up theories before  which we all fall prostrate and the manner in which they knock the same theo  ries over presently while we servilely applaud is truly entertaining. I am glad I  came."  "Yon won't stay if you don't exercise  more control of your tongue." one of the  truly obedient nurses once said to her.  "Oh. well." said Lucy, "the cars still  run by the hospital.    I can get away."  But for all her nonsense she was soon  counted one of the best probationers the  hospital had ever known. Her steadiness  of nerve was remarkable. Her , pulse  remained when she witnessed or assisted  at an operation. It seemed as if she  could divest herself of her own .personality entirely for the purpose of serving  rhf������. Inert creatuie on the operating table.  The majesty of life* seemed a poem to her  at such moments. To preserve, at any  cost the fragile, divine, mystic, elusive  thing which all the science in the world  could never synthesize seemed to her half  godlike. The physicians gave her extravagant praise. .  "But still I do not like doctors," she  said.' i  ' Sometimes she did not like. patients  aither. There was bne old lady, for ex-  tmple, who never could divest herself of  -he idea that Lucy was a .common servant and that whatever else she did she  must never sit down. One day the girl  had been on her feet for hours waiting  upon the patient, rubbing her, feeding  her and caring for her in fifty ways, and  -it length even her tirin young body ached  ���������n every bone. She dropped into a chair  for a few moments of needed rest.  "Miss Armitage," said the querulous  voice of the old lady, "the room appears  to me to be untidy. I wish you would  pick it up."  Lucy looked over at the discontented  old creature and smiled tolerantly.  "Miss Coudry," she said, "never before  have I been' asked to 'do so difficult a  thing," and sat still.  Miss Coudry had no suspicion that her  phraseology was at fault, and she reported the nurse. The hea'1 physician  interviewed her on i the subject. Lucy refrained from commenting upon the tyranny of the poor old hypochondriac- She  turned the matter" with a jest. ���������  - ''I was asked to pick up the room," she  said. "I am not the magnetic strong girl,  so'I said I couldn't do it."  " The physicjan tempered his reproof.  Tho months, of probation^ over Lucy  was accepted, and the first severe case  committed entirely to her charge was1  that.of a young doctor who had been severely injured in a railroad accident and  one of whose legs had undergone amputation. The case was a bothersome one.'  The young man did not gather strength  as he should have done, considering his  youth. He sank' into a low fever and  drowsed along through, life week in and  week out. Lucy stood by him loyally.  She endeavored jn every way to inspire,  him to make a fight for life. - But for a  long time she could arouse no interest in  him.   At last she had an idea,  "I will make lilm fall in love with me,"  she thought to herself. "It will do me  no harm, and it will help him toget well,  and as soon as he is strong he will forget  all about it.    The others always have."  It was a silly comedy to play���������perhaps  it was rather a coarse "farce���������but Lucy  entered upon her, role with enthusiasm.  She was really a beautiful girl, but she  seldom' took time to remember it. ' Now  she stuck a rose in her dark hair mornings, and she was careful to have a faint  perfume of violets floating from her exquisite gray gown. Her cap and apron  assumed an indefinable coquetry. She  took pensive attitudes and talked upon  sentimental subjects.  "What a precious guy I am making of  myself!" she often chuckled in the recesses of her naughty soul. "Of all the  idiotic parts I ever assumed I have most  cause to be ashamed of this!" - But it  proved to be the prescription of which the  young doctor stood in- need. He watched  for her coming in the morning as frightened children watch for their mothers.  He hung upon her words, exulted in her  springing, firm step, was soothed into  exquisite peace by the touch of her cool  white hand upon his brow, and when he  felt the grasp of her two strong hands  upon his in hours of pain it seemed to  him that with her by he would find  strength to endure anything.  "It will soon be over," Lucy said to  comfort her conscience, "and if I anrcler-  er perhaps I can get him away before he  says anything to me. I hate horribly to  face the consequences of my, sin. If I  had been making sin, I should have made  it without consequences."  But clever as she was she did not succeed in her desire. One day Dr. Halson,  convalescent, turned from the contemplation of the passersby on the street and  said imperatively:  "Miss Armitage. come here."  "Aren't your pillows right?" asked  Lucy with feigned solicitude. She knew  in her soul that the fatal .-hour'had come.;  "My pillows are . well. But I wish to  say to you a thing you have been preventing me from saying for days. You  are a beautiful tyrant, but I will not suffer tyranny even'from the beautiful. I  find upon consulting with my���������with my  physician that I shall require your- services indefinitely. I want them as long as  life lasts. I must take you away with  me.   I must have you for my wife."  Lucy had many times prepared in her  mind the rebukes that she would utter in  answer to these remarks. She would  bring him to an understanding of the absurdity of the thing, for, of course, this  was a piece with the rest of the absurdity  of the world.  But this is what she heard herself saying:  "My dear, dear, I knew you could not  do without me. Of course I couldn't  think of leaving you." And this time  when their hands clasped it was hers  that were trembling.  Then she laughed. She fairly shouted,  with laughter till the patients in the other rooms hear and smiled responsively.  What mad absurdity! What a perversely amusing world! She would marry  only a man of great physical superiority  ���������she hated physicians!  And she had just kissed a one Jegged  physician and promised to be his wife!  "I was never so amused!" cried Lucy.  "You were never so amusing, my dear  heart," said her lover.���������Chicago Tribune.  CUTTING DIAMONDS.  HOW AMSTERDAM ARTISANS HANDLE  THE ROUGH  STONES.  The Splitting;. Rounding- nnd Polishing Processes That Coax Into Being  the Flashing: Finished Stone Heady  For the Setter.  Among the many industries-of. Amsterdam one of the most interesting as "well  as the most important-is that of diamond  cutting ,and polishing. Though an un-  known^art until the fifteenth century, it  has since that time flourished greatly until now at the present day there are no  less than G2 firms registered as diamond'  companies in this great city. Among the  more important of these firms stands that  of Mr. Coster, the manager of which  kindly allowed us to inspect the'workings  of the establishment. Here 350 to 400  workmen are constantly employed, most  of them in the delicate work of diamond  polishing.  When the diamonds arrive-first in Am-  Eteradm, they are in the same rough, uncut state,as they were,when found in the  South African mines. Before reaching  their highly polished state they have to  pass through three separate and distinct  processes���������the processes of diamond splitting," diamond .cutting-and diamond polishing���������and when these are' accomplished  the stones are ready for the jeweler.  The first process consists simply in  splitting the rough diamond (containing  flaws) into several purei"' flawless (ones,  and in this work 12 men are constantly  employed. ' ,  We visited one of these workshops,  where we found three' men engaged in  splitting diamonds as'.they sat at a small  table on'which fell the,,light from two  windows. Oue of the'men talked English exceedingly well and gave us many  interesting details' of this .particular  process, in which no machinery, is used.  Pulling open a small drawer in the wood-'  en table, he showed us beautiful uncut  diamonds, all still in the rough state.  Then we watched the actual "splitting"  process itself. At first sight it looks a  simple one, but we soon discovered that  it needs "gmit skill on the part of the  workmen..  A small wooden tool is held in the left  hand, into which a rough diamond, has'  been firmly "waxed".at the top. .Pieces'  of the waxlike ceinentJ lie conveniently  near on the table, and, as a gas jet is  always burning there, the necessary heat  is easily supplied. In the right hand of  the workman a similar tool is held, the  . top'consisting also of a diamond, which  later on is to act as a knife in the other  haud.-  Probably most of,my readers know that  nothing but a- diamoud ��������� Will cut a _ diamond, and so,the diamond is extensively  employed in all the' diamond cutting-factories in Amsterdam. A stone of. 100 car:  ots can be, split in 15 minutes by skillfully pressing one diamond, aga'nst the .other on the spot where' a flaw'occurs, the  diamond in the. right hand.;.being.,used as>  a knife. Where a flaw occurs, a split  soon takes .'"place, and the' diamond divides into two stones. - Should there be  another flaw in either of these the operation is repeated; until several pure, flawless diamonds lie on the rough wooden table, and the first process is successfully  accomplished.  The second process���������that of diamond  cutting���������is also performed without the  aid of machinery, except in the case of  the larger stones. It was. interesting to  find that all the work of diamond cutting  Is performed by Dutch women and girls.  Diamond splitting and diamond cutting  look somewhat alike, as .the tools are  very similar, but in reality the~process is  not the same, tho great- difference being  that pressure is used in the first instance  always on the same spot, with the idea  of causing the diamond to split into  two stones, while in the .other case it is  used equally on every part of the diamond in order to give it simply a round  shape. To gain this roundness is, therefore, the one leading idea, of diamond cutting. As the diamonds are cut a fine dust  falls from them into a wooden box*on the  table, and this powder is most carefully  preserved, as it is used largely in diamond polishing when mixed with oil.  All the diamonds to be cut are given to  the women in small packets, each having the number and size of the diamonds  it contains written plainly on the outside.  After having once received these packets  the women are responsible for their contents.  ' The work of diamond cutting is particularly hard and very trying to the eyes,  as some of the diamonds arc so small  that 800 of them only weigh oue carat!  The time that a diamond, takes to cut depends very much on its size. A. large one  weighing ten carats usually takes from  thre*������ to four hours, while the smaller  ones take much less time.  The third process, that of diamond  polishing, is an important and lengthy  one. The skilled workmen sit at long,  narrow tables with their backs to .the  windows, having in front of them the  small iron wheels which revolve with  such terrible rapidity when set in motion  hy the great engine. Facing the windows  stand apprentices and less skilled workmen, whose work it is to receive the diamonds from the cutting rooms and solder  them (by aid of the gas jet) into the top  of small pear shaped tools of various  sizes, these tools being composed of lead  and tin. The diamond tipped tools then  pass into the hands of the skilled workmen, who, before fastening them firmly  into frames which stand in close proximity to the wheels, dip each diamond into a  mixture of oil and diamond dust. T.bis is  a most important part of the process, for  by means of these grains ������of dust the polishing is done. Four of these tools containing diamonds are then placed in position near the wheel (four can be polished  at. once), and with a quick movement of  the hand the iron disks are set in motion.  The wheels revolve 1.500 times a minute,  and the diamond is polished on one particular side by means of the constant  friction on it of the grains of diamond  dust.  As  the   object  of diamond   cutting  is  simply to make the stone a round one, so  the object of diamond polishing is to give  the diamond the many "sides," to use a  technical expression, considered necessary by the jeweler before it is ready for  setting. Great skill is needed, in this  .work, for each stone has to be resoldered  a great many times on to the top of the  pear shaped tools and placed again and  again in connection "with the, revolving  wheels in order to produce these "sides."  ���������B.

"I think the late Bill Nye was at his  best when an opportunity presented itself to make humorous remarks about  himself or his own misfortunes," said ML  A. Marks during a conversation in which  the writings of the humorist were discussed.  "I remember an incident which happened in Madison, Ind., the town in which;  I was born and raised."- I was manager  of the playhouse we had in the town, and;  when upon a certain occasion the Worn.-  en's Relief corps, an -auxiliary organiza>  tion to the^G. A. R.. wanted to get'up, an  entertainment for the purpose of raising  money it asked me to pick out something,  I thought would be a drawing card.  "I looked over the list of attractions;  and ran across the names of> Bill Nye and!  James Whitcomb Riley, who were theni  touring together. I told the ladies,that int  my opinion they could make no better-  selection, and the humorist and Hoosier-  poet were immediately communicated!  with. It so happened that a. fewYdoys-  later I had to go to New York and, of:  course, left the entire matter with the-  ladies/ telling them to proceed at once  with selling tickets.  "You   may  imagine   my  astonishment  when   I  returned   home  on  the- day  on <  which the entertainment was to be given,  when one of the ladies came to me and  said that they had. sold but seven tickets'  and that they had abandoned the idea of t  holding  the  entertainment 'at' all.-   The  worst of it was they had simply come, to-  the conclusion that they, could make- no.  money   out   of   the "entertainment 'and',  dropped  it  without .communicating-.withi  Nye or Riley or with their manager.     t ,  "Of course in the afternoon they1'both,  arrived on the train, and it devolved -upon-  me to break the news to them.

Robert Symmer, in 1759, described-'!  some most entertaining experiments,,  making use of tbe opposite electrifications of superposed stockings of different  materials or merely of different colors,,  the dye matters-in the latter case causr  ing differentiation.  If in a^ dry' atmosphere a silk stocking?  be drawn oyer the leg and a woolen one-  pulled over it, the two-will be found, upr  on being removed, to be very powerfully  electrified in opposite senses.; If. the-four-  stockings of two such pairs be used and  then suspended together, they will indulge in remarkable antics due -to, each  of the silk stockings trying to attract  both of the woolen ones, and vice versa,  and, on the other hand, each of each kind  repelling the other.  The amount of electrical attraction and  repulsion produced in this simple way in  a dry atmosphere is remarkable. The  experiment may also be performed: with  all silk stockings, one pair white and  the other black.���������Popular Science. ^jtAmmm* nr m, nurmiti  ll>M<l������������l*'lfili  .ii ',    i I I  I'-       0  ll1'  THS   CUMEKRLAND  NEWS  Issued Everyo(Tuesday.

All forms���������Uorse, foot, and  dragoons, artillery and army service, officer and private���������they are all to wear that  monotonous, uninteresting color.  Never a war but leaves its impressions  on the details of army service. This war  is to abolish the red coat.  At the same time the army is not to lose  Its butterfly tints entirely. It would be a  national calamity  and ft check  to the re  cruiting sergeant's industry if a rod broadcloth were to be wholly a vanishing uuauf  tity. The war oflice realizes tOothc fulll  the value of a red splash, of color In thi������T  black .coated crowd of a Loudon-street. So",  the soldier's costume is"to have;a two'foldfl  existence. The redcoat is to emerge frorajl  his khaki chrysalis on.Sundays and holl-i|  days, siud.at.any other lime' wlien it lsw  intended to be a spectacle and uot a work-ll  ing soldier, as, for Instance, on dress par-jj  The army is to have a full dr-ss unifon������  with red coats, more- striking, more dis}!  tinguished thun hfs present ^rod coat!

Among, the things which this country  iahei-ited from Spain as a result of the  recent war, was the garrote as an instrument ol punishment���������a fact which  wi.6 dLsagrtebly-imprtfifi-d up.n the public mind some weeks ago, when the barbarous weapon was used fur the purpose  of putting to death certain notorious  malefactors in Puerto B co. The geiier-  al sentiment in this -country is adverse  to' any such cruel punishment even in  the c.iee of the worst eliminate, and now  a similar sentiment is spreading throughout Spain itself.'  The first evidence"' that tlie Spanish  people had begun to d eapprove of the  horrible me;liud of ex.cu.ion wh.'ch has  prevailed in' their country for conturie-,  appeared a few days ago, when the Spanish parliament decided that condemned  criminal.:, should ' in future be executed  within the prisons, and not, as heretofore, in public^ and that the mo al tortures  which have heretofore been inflicted on  such criminals b f- re th y are banded  over to the executioner, should be at once  aboli.-hel. Henceforth, twhen a c iminal  is ex: cuted in Sp;iin, a, black flag will be  hoisted above the prison at the moment  of the execution, and nevermore wili b_������  .witnessed those deplorable scenes which  ���������usually took place' when a criminal.wae  ex cuted in public. Furthermore, thj executioner w,ll in future do his work quickly, and not as heretofore.-1 in such a manner r.s'to nedlessly prolong the agony  of his vh'im, Instead of testing the  g.irr.rie for scvtrul wjniites in the presence cf 'ln������ tiinn wbc is to die, he will  hve'to mitke all hi; preparations before-  the cr minal luuvcs his c-'ll, and he-will-  be held '"O.-iionoible if the instrument  fa N to cause t'u ������������������&y death.

Seyeial l.'Jiisla-  tore h������'w v-T, are climbring for further  reform in this dir-cLion. They insist that  one hour in the chapel is sufficient. "The  law," "thoy say, "in condemning a criminal to capital punishment does not ordain that his execution shall be prec-'ded  by any other pu li-hment, or that he  shall be subjected to moral as well as to  p1 ys cal torturer."  The recent regulations provide that in  future the chapel shall be divested as  much .as possible of its funereal features,  and thus, though condemned persons  will be required to sp^nd some hours in  it, they will not .bs tortured in th.-1 same  manner   as   their  unfortunate   predeces-  1  sors were.

Bob lay, six feet of British manhood,  yellow haired, straight Uimbed, deep  chested, sound asleep.  Bob smiled and awoke and -saw mother  looking down upon him.       '  "Mybaby! My boy!" mother 'murmured.   "Oh, my darling!"  Bob bore it with admirable grace, but  he did not like it���������'not a little bit���������and as  Boon as he could he wriggled himself free-  and asked the'.time.   .  There was :time and 'to spare, and'  mother saidif he-did not mind'she would  like to read .one of the morning psalms'  to him; it would comfort her, she said.  And Bob consented, like the gentleman  he wasi and 'lay still while she read,  thinking "what pretty hair she had���������it fell  in a long plait right below her waist.  Then she kissed .him again and went.  ' And when he <was quite sure he could  count on isolation .Bob got up and wan-  ������ dere'd among the-litter of .uniform cases  and portmanteaus that' lay about the  floor. Then :he took up this -Glengarry  and, putting it on, regarded,his reflection  in the mirror^with.complacency.   And his  ��������� pride must be excused, 'for he was a newly fledged subaltern of '20 years, recalled  from leave to rejoin his ibattalion, .which  sailed on the morrow for'the seat of war.  A knock came at the door, and his sis-  ;-$er, his junior ;by three years, entered  ~the room; It was easy 'to see she had  been weeping, but Bob expected as much  and in his heart' did not resent it. He  put his arm round her waist and kissed  her.  "Nearly, time to ;be off!" :he cried with  almost brutal cheerfulness and turned to  strap his portmanteau, -whistling a martial ditty.    ".  :   Nell sat down on "the edge of the bed.  and surveyed the array of baggage with,  mixed feelings.    She .was very proud of  Bob.    He was'a dear hero.    But if only  the war were over and he < back again,  crowned .with glory!  ��������� Other girls' brothers had gone, arid���������well, she would not let  1 herself think.    She wished she had been  kinder to Bob in the days gone by.    Now  the little  uh thought of omissions  would  be ghosts to haunt her conscience till he  was back again.    She would ilike to have  told  Bob  she  was  sorry,  but  she  knew  he would laugh at her for a little goose,  and. besides, it would look as if she 'felt  this was indeed -goodby.    So she choked  back the lump in her throat and sat with  i    brave eyes stoically  watching Bob,  who  stood  in  the  window   examining  his  revolver.  But strive as she would she could not  . check the thoughts that: the sight brought  to her mind.    Bob with a revolver in his  hand���������yes, but far away in the midst of  the din and smoke of battle, surrounded  by the foe; dauntless, wounded, bloody���������  dying, dying!   With a little cry,-she rose  to' her -feet. -  Bob, who had been taking careful aim  at the gas globe, turned at the sound.  ������������������Hellor\ he exclaimed. "What's up,  Nell? You look as if you had seen a  ghost." Then his, eves followed her gaze.  "Little coward!" lie cried teasingly. "I  believe you got funky at the sight of this  revolver."  ��������� Nell stopped short on .her way to the  door; then she gave a queer little laugh.  "Well, perhaps I did," she said and went  quickly from the room.  Bob went back and finished his packing. Therihe caught up his portmanteau  and helmet case and went down stairs.  In the hall 'Perkins, ^the manservant,  met him and hurried forward, with a  scared face. "Oh, sir." he cried reproachfully, "you. shouldn't, really, sir. J  wouldn't have had it happen for worlds,  sir," he said pathetically as he took the  case and portmanteau from Bob's hands.  "Oh, it is all right, Perkins," Bob answered, with ,'splendid condescension;  whereupon one of the housemaids, who  was a witness-of-the scene, hurried off to  the kitchen below.  "He's down," she exclaimed breathlessly, "a-carrying of his own portmanteau  ������aad looking as handsome and cheerful for  all the world as if he was a-going to be  married instead of off to the war!"  "Poor dear!" said cook as she turned  the chops.   "Poor innocent dear!"  Perkins hurried down nt this moment.  "To think," he cried tragically, "as he's  strapped his own traps and carried down  his own portmanteau, and he off to the  war! Vd have lost a whole month's  wage sooner than this here should have  happened. Supposing he's killed, and  I've got to remember that he waited on  hisself the last morning!"  "Ain't he cheerful V" said Mary, the  housemaid. "He don't look as if he  meant to be killed."  "Oh, they none of 'em means to be killed. But that don't make bullets blank  cartridges," Perkins answered grimly.  In the meantime mother had dressed.  She had borne up bravely throughout.  Once, though, her lips had trembled.  That was when the sound of Bob's gay  whistling had reached her ears. But even  then loving pride had flashed into her  eyes and choked down sorrow. Her boy  was brave���������brave and true���������and duty,  she  knew  full  well,   would   find   him  a  She wondered if father, who was in  the dressing room, could hear the sound.  She would like to have called to' him,  only she was just a little hurt at his apparent unconcern at his son's departure.  But, after all, she thought, he was only  a man; he could not know a mother's  heart; his breast-had not pillowed the little sunny head in the years gone by; he  had not cried with joy when the little  feet had taken their first unsteady steps  across the floor. How well she remembered that day, and how proud she had  felt of her son! .He was'such a fine, big  baby. She had placed him against a  chair, and he had looked up at her with  round eyeB of wonder. ' Then, when her  /meaning came to him, he had not hesitated a moment; he had thrown back his  little head and, with a scream of delight,  walked bravely forward right into her  loving, waiting arms. And now���������now���������  She brushed aside her tears, for she  heard father coming.  ���������Father entered the room quickly, but  paused on the threshold. To tell the  truth, he had thought mother down  stairs. He had been- trying to remember  that day when Bob had ridden the new  .pony for the first time so pluckily whether the lad had been breeched or not. He  ���������knew^the picture was on mother's dressing table, and he had come in to look at  it, and there stood mother with the photograph in her hand.  "Humph!" exclaimed father. "So you  have not gone down?" And his voice  was not conciliatory, for he felt that every one that morning, himself included,  was wearing his heart on his sleeve, and  a sense of lost dignity was irritating him.  Mother's heart swelled at the tone.

Bob wanted to,talk, but  .felt that hds one topic���������his luck at being  -sent to the front���������would not be exactly  ���������congenial to his listeners.    So he refrained'and ate a hearty breakfast.   ���������  He would .carry the memory of his last  meal away with him to the faroff land.  The tender face-of mother, smiling brav-  ly from behind the bubbling, steaming  urn;''the dainty spread' table, the pleasant, luxurious room, with tits handsome  pictures; the broad' bow window, from  which he could see the dear old garden'  where he had played as a child: the loving eyes of Nell beaming upon his across  the table. Yes, home was ��������� home, although he was the luckiest subaltern in  the service.  By and by the trap was at the door,  and the .servants gathered in the hall to  wish him good luck and godspeed. Bob  shook hands with them; all and- thanked  thein,' and then he stood with mother in  the porch���������alone. He could not see her  face distinctly for the mist across his  eyes, arid the next moment he and father  ���������were walking quickly down the drive,  .along which the dogcart was going slowly  forward to await them at the gates beyond. Father remarked that the new .  gamekeeper was giving satisfaction and  that there was every prospect of the c.ov-  ers^yieldjng better sport the next autumn.  "WV snail have you home again before  then;, my boy," he said.  "Rather, sir." answered Bob. "We  shall not take long to settle this little affair."  At the lodge the, gamekeeper's four  boys were standing in a row. They had  three cornered paper hats on their heads  and wooden swords in their hands, and  they greeted Bob with sundry salutes and  hurrahs. And Bob laughed and gave  them a penny each. "You must keep up  your drilling," he said. "We shall be  wanting new recruits in the regiment by  a������d by."-  And then the gate was opened, and  Bob climbed to the back seat of the cart.  Far away, at the house, something fluttered white from a window, and Bob  took out his handkerchief and signaled  back again. Then the boys cheered  afresh, and the trap turned into the lane,  und home was already a' thing of the  p.ast.  ��������� ,vAs they drove through.the,yjllatge;.there  was not a doorway that had not some one  standing on the threshold to bid him godspeed.  " 'Tis the young squire off to the war!"  they cried one to the other, and the men's  eyes-flashed and their voices rose, but the  women's eyes filled with tears as they  saw him drive past. "God keep him,"  they said, "and comfort his mother's  heart!" For they knew that the men  gave willingly their lives for their country, but that the gift of the women was.  something dearer than life.  And all the while Bob's heart was singing to him. He did not know that the  song had come down to him from the  loug ago time when the sea kings had  gone forth with their battle songs to be the  terror and conquerors of distant lands.  Ke did not know. But so it was, and  'twas a goodly heritage, of which Bob  in his joy and impatience recked little.  So the station was reached and the larst  goodby spoken, and father grasped Bob's  hands. "You will���������do your duty," father  said.    "I am sure of it."  And Bob's face flushed.

Chinese officials who are in a position to secure accurate data estimate that 11,000,000 Chinamen' belong to the society of boxers, or, as  this same organized band of ruffians  was one* known, the "Society of the  Great Sword."  For the last quarter of a century  this society has terrorized the great  central provinces of the flowery kingdom, and wrought death and destruction in the homes of the Christian missionaries. It was their latest atrocity, the murder of a young  Church of England missionary named  Brooks, that called for the collective  note' of the ambassadors and ministers of the powers. In response to  that note the Chinese government  has sent an armed force against the  Boxers, but it is said of this force of  soldiers that more than one-half belong to the society, and consequently .but little good is expected from  it.  Of all the atrocities of which this  society of ruffians has been accused  none aire more terrible than the torture and death of this young Church  of .England missionary. At the*1 tune  of his death he was on his way to  join a brother missionary at Shan-  Tung. On this journey he passed  through a village where a number of  the members of this society were attending a native feast, and the cry of  "foreign devil," started by a little  Chinese girl, announced his presence  to the blood-thirsty villains.     -  Almost before he had time to realize what was happening they had  surrounded him and began the torture that ended in his death. They  pushed him about from one to another, called him all the vile names  of which they could think, beat him.  with clubs, and finally one of the villains brought a hook to which he had  attached a long, stout cord, and this  he fastened in the poor victim's nose,  and in this manner he was pulled  about the streets. When he attempted to escape be was/literally cut to  pieces  with swords.  This is but one in a long list of  crimes for which this society should  be "called upon to answer. Several  years u^o they attacked and destroyed an American ' mission at Shan-  Tung. The head of this mission at  that time was Rev. J. H. Laughlin,  now of New York city. Other members of the mission were Rev. It. H.  Hent, and Dr. 3. L. Van Schoick.  Of this case Rev. Mr. Laughlin says:  - "We lived in three houses all surrounded by a high wall. The first  evidence of trouble was a gunshot  outside the gate, whereupon the gatekeeper poked out his head to see  what was the matter. Instantly a  pistol was shot off in his face so that  the powder blinded him, although he  received no   other wound.  "The man fell shriking to the  ground, and 25 bandits rushed over  his body and into the courtyard.  Mr. Bent saw them coming and retreated into his cottage, but the robbers smashed in the door and shot  him in the thigh. The missionary  seized a piece of the splintered door  and ran out, striking right and left.  One of the bandits slashed at him  with a sword and cut his head, another wounded him on the arm, but  he at  last escaped with his  life.  "I was romping with my little girl  ���������in our dining-room and ran out to  investigate. I     found     Mr.   Bent's  quarters surrounded by a mob of bandits, and heard them-shouting 'Kill!  kill!'    . ...    .  "I ran back to ���������' my quarters, got  my wife and children over the fence  and helped them to a place of safety.  Mr. Van Schoick did likewise. When  we returned the bandits were gone,  and the mission, safe lay literally  smashed to bits on the ground."The  bandits had shattered it with immense stones and then pried it.apart  with crowbars. The amount of money secured was small. Sometimes  when the plunder does not equal  their expectations they seize the person of one of their victims, blindfold him, lead himiabout in a circle  and at last carry him off to the  mountains, from where they send  messages demanding a ransom."  Another attack on Christian missionaries which called forth a protest  from Germany, and which lost to  China the valuable port of Tsin-Tau,  which was seized by that government in default of the prompt payment of an indemnity, was that  which resulted in the murder of some  German priests and the looting of a  German mission  at Shan-Tung.  The trouble which led up to this  murder started in May, 1891, when  two nuns who belonged to this mission were maltreated by a mob of  Boxers, who charged them with bewitching children. The ritms escaped  with slight injuries, but the depredations were continued, and the mission stations throughout the province were plundered, and then came  the murder of the priests.  As the Chinese government took no  steps toward punishing the leaders  they became bolder than ever, and  many   native   Christians   were put   to |  death by terrible means. This continued until the government at Peking was forced to act if it was to  save itself ��������� the indignity of having  foreign troops landed for the purpose of suppressing' the lawlessness  and bringing to justice the leaders of  the society.  It was only last fall that this attempt was made to put a stop to the  atrocities of the^society, and the futile attempts,at that time promise to  be repeated now.���������The governor of  the province who was ordered to  proceed against the bandits proved  more of a friend than enemy to them,  for after tho troops'which he ha'd  dispatched to punish them had returned victorious he degraded tho  officers of the troops and sent a report to Peking in which he said that  the so-called rebels which the tropps  had attacked were merely an- aggregation of honost country people who  had been massacred without right or  warrant upon the instigation of the  foreign powers.  "Thus, at a single stroke," writes  Henry D. Porter, of P'ang-Chaung,  in a communication to the Outlook,  "the governor paralyzed the action  of every official, making it impossible  for them to act as they clearly saw  was best. The leaders who had  slunk away after the fight quickly  discovered that the governor was on  their side,' and within two week's  every man of them was in his place  again."  But ' little better results can be  looked for from the present attempt  to suppress this society of bandits  and murders now with far more than  one-half of the force of soldiery that  is moving- against them composed of  members of the society that is committing the outrages,' and the day  may . not bet far .distant when' foreign  troops will be landed to guard foreign missions in China and another  step in the disintegration of the ancient empire will have been-   taken.  So far the only punishments meted  out has been to a 'few bl the leaders whose heads have been cut off  and hung in cages on the highways  as a warning to others to desist  from their plunderings, but it would  take thousands of such punishments  to prove an effective cure among a society  with   11,000,000  members.    .

If the faculties are  few, very simple stimuli "will" suffice.  Even that of fleas will go . a long  way. A dog is continually scratching himself, and a bird pluming itself, whenever they are not occupied  with food hunting, fighting or love.  In those black times there is very  little for them to attend to besides  their varied cutaneous irritations.
