It consists,  " .besides Mr. and Mrs. Root, of'two sons  and one d:1 lighter. Miss Edythe is tlie  eldest, being just 20. She will probably  be more or less seeii in Washington society, as she will be reckoned among the  ladies of the "cabinet circle."  The two boys are still busy with their  Bchoolbooks.    Elihu junior is a young fellow' of 17, and Edward W.  is a  boy of  . 14.    Their education will continue uudis-  .turbod in the' fall when their father establishes a home in the national capital.  'In -just   what   sort   of  style; Secretary  Root will live when he settles iu  Washington is not yet known.

Whether any of these are to be  taken to Washington is not known, but  one thing is sure, that whatever or  wherever the home of the new secretary  of war is to be in Washington its interior  will surely be rich, handsome and refined.  Thus far in his brief visits to Washington Mr. Root has stopped at^the Arling-  ton, and it is probable that he will continue to make it his headquarters for at  least some little time after he removes  his family to the capital. Later, doubtless,   he   will   take   a   residence   in   the  fashionable section of the city.

Philippines, but whether -the new secretary is going to "cut a social splurge" or  not.   ���������'  Judging from their home life in New  'York', the Roots will neither try .to dazzle  Washington, society nor to save part of  the secretary's salary. F'or many years  Mr. Root-has hud one of the most lue:a-  tive legal practices in New Yoik. and today he must have a very comfortable  fortune laid away. He has not enjoyed  the'fame of Joseph-Choate, but some of  the fees which he has earned in conducting will cases and as counsel for  great railroad corporations have been as  large as those paid the present embassador to England.  Mr. and Mrs. Root have for a long  time resided in a large and very handsome house in West Sixty-ninth street,  near Central park, and while their social  position is most excellent, they have never been given to taking sensatioual  .plunges into the social swim.  They have led .a quiet "home life" rath  er than an ultrafashionable one. very  much, devoted to family dinners and  seeking much of their real pleasures iu  close association with their three children.  And both parents have personally and  intimately'concerned themselves with the  education of Edythe, Elihu and Edward,  who have been educated at home by  tutors and governesses or at nearby day  schools, as in the case of the boys.  But you mustn't gather from this that  Mr. and Mrs. Root have shut themselves  within a kindergarten and that their  entertainments are chiefly nursery parlies. Mr. Root, as a politician, a prominent lawyer and a great clubman, sallies  forth into the world a great deal, and he  a ad his wife entertain quietly and handsomely. Their dinners and luncheons  have been delightful social functions,  much enjoyed by those who have been  their guests.  .Mrs. Root's home life is passed very  quietly. She is very fond of society, but  ���������here again her New England training  comes in-^-she does not think it is proper  nor decorous for a married woman to go  in society without her husband. And as  Mr. Root is so desperately busy all the  time society sees comparatively little of  the wife, who will not go alone.  "I do not believe that Mrs. Root knows  or cares whether my nusband is worth  ������100. or .$1,000,000," exclaimed, a millionaire's wife once, coming down the Root  front steps after a vain attempt to secure Mrs. Root's society at a dinner at  wjifcch Mr. Root could- not be present.

He waves, his hand,  and there conies floating in the air a  white wand, which he clutches. A wave  of the wand and a table appears on his  right: another wave, and another table  on his left. Again, and two large vases  are seen upon the tables. They are shown  to be empty. The magician drops into  one of the vases a few orange seeds. A  wave of the wand, and the receptacle is  filled with oranges, which, on being poured into the second vase, disappear.  A human skeleton suddenly arrives and  begins to dance. It becomes dismembered, the separated parts floating about, but  presently they join, and the. dance is renewed. Next a white rabbit is taken by  the performer, >and in his hands it becomes two rabbits, which are tossed into  the air aud-disappear. An unseen assistant is on the stage all the time. Being  dressed in black, with black gloves and 'a  black velvet mask, he is invisible to the  audience. The oranges are poured into  the vase from a black velvet bag by the  assistant, and they vanish when he empties them again into the sack. It is the  same way with the rabbits, which are  caught in the open mouth of the bag  when they are tossed up. The skeleton is  of papier mache, painted white and fas-1  tened upon thin ' board, sawed to shape  and covered with black velvet, one arm  and one leg being joined so as to be easily  removed.  The tables and vases are white, and.  like the skeleton, are made to appear by  removing their black coverings.  There is another way of producing  spectral effects, says the New York  Press. On the stage is seen atman .seated at a table, dining composedly. The  stage suddenly is'darkened, causing the  man to disappear from .view, but at the  same moment a skeleton appears sitting  on "the opposite'side of the .'table. > The  skeleton is painted with zinc sulphide,  which has the property of "becoming luminous under the" Roentgen rays. The  apparatus for producing the latter is  concealed, and the rays are communicated to Brudder- Bones through' the  body actually of the living man at the  table. By the same means the decanter  and -dishes on the table are caused to  glow brilliantly. The' skeleton is concealed by u black velvet cloth at first,  while the stage is illuminated,   v  "Pepper's ghost" depended chiefly upon  the well known reflecting power of plain  glass.    People walking- on the street often  pause to look  at themselves  in  the  windows of the shops, and it was by the  use  of  the   same   property  of  ordinary  glass that Pepper's amazing results were  obtained.    For example, a figure clad in  a white robe, but concealed from the di-.  rect view of the audience, was brilliantly  illuminated  and so placed that a bright  reflection of it was thrown upon a large  sheet of glass.    The glass was not observed by the spectators, and from their  viewpoint the ghost, for such it seemed,  appeared in obedience to a familiar law  of optics to be as far in the rear of the  glass as the real figure was'distant from  the  latter.     Thus the specter stood  apparently well back on the stage, and its  immateriality was made evident by Professor Pepper walking through it repeat-  wily.  If one looks out at night into the darkness through the glass of a window of a  lighted room, there will be seen the reflected images of objects in the room,  which seem to he exactly as far beyond  the window pane as the objects themselves are distant from the glass on the  inside. One's own face, lor instance, if  a foot away from the pane, will be reproduced by another face a foot beyond the  glass. It is upon this optical principle  that Pepper's ghost deuem's  San Francisco has one of the oddest  and most picturesque suburbs of any citv  in the country. Its houses are composed  almost entirely of old fashioned horse  cars which have been displaced by the  trolley and the cable.  On the sand dunes beyond the Cliff  House-between the beach and the trolley  line this unique settlement has sprung  up. It was started only six months ago.  The pioneer car dweller was a physician  who purchased two big double endors.  mounted them side by side on a timber  foundation and set up housekeeping  therein. He fitted his profession to his  new location by, advocating the virtues  of sand baths.  Where the enterprising doctor led others were swift to follow. The prospect  of enjoying all the beautiful pleasures of  a seaside resort free from the hoveling  horror of a prospective bill proved alluring. The certainty of being able to accomplish ��������� this within so short a distance' from the Pacific coast metropolis  as to make business and amusement  there merely the matter of a little over ii  brief half hour proved irresistible to several San Franciscans even before the  winter mine ceased and summer smiled  on the land.  To own or rent a house at the seaside  is a charming thing., but houses in desirable localities, whether owned or rented, usually come high. -When, however  one can, without going through the agonies of house hunting or the miseries of  house building, order a cozy,' yet commodious "hand me down" residence one. day  The Educated Thief.

A mild boom in sandy real estate,and  discarded street cars followed public understanding aud appreciation of the physician's happy thought,' and the settlement of Carville sprang 'into being. '  One of .the first to step from the wilderness of civilization into the civilization " of the wilderness was a schoolteacher. She bought ,'a single car -and  moved into it with her daughter.  The two houses made a brave showing  from boulevard, beach and car line and  awakened env.v in many an erstwhile  peaceful and city contented breast, and  soon the tide of .urban emigration turned  that way.  At first the plain and simple car. made  stationary by bracings and timbers, was  considered perfectly satisfactory as a  residence. The interior of a street car is  far more spacious than such persons as  have only tenanted them for purposes of  travel can easily realize. By a little arrangement of portieres two people, and  possibly three, can dwell in one quite  conveniently.  ' At first where the family to be sheltered was actually too numerous to be tucked away anywhere inside one car another  was wheeled alongside, and an aristocratic double house was the admirable  result- This idyllic simplicity, however,  did not long satisfy the vaulting ambition  of the progressive beach dwellers. At  least those of them who had become  landed proprietors and owned their own  unique habitations. Car was added to  car and planks to frame in every imaginable way that human fancy, as exemplified in Carville, could suggest.  Cottages, villas, Swiss chalets, castles  and towers begc^i to rise in every direction, and the decorated as well as the  utilitarian possibilities of a corporation's  discarded rolling stock were exploited to  the utmost. At the present date there  are over 70 houses made wholly of street  cars in this suburb.  The old fashioned span of cars placed  soberly side by side is not particularly  popular now, though this method of arrangement still has its conservative adherents. Common variations are cars  set tandem fashion, with a canvas covered passageway between, and cars set end  to end, forming three sides of a hollow  square, with a garden or a chicken yard  or a swinging hammock in the sheltered  space between.  The prevailing idea, however, seems to  be to see in how many varieties of ways  a car may be used in the construction of  a building for either usefulness or beauty  or both. The curving top of a car, its  dashboard and storm shelter and its rows  of sliding windows make it ornamental  wherever it may be placed in the construction of a building once the mind  resolutely puts away the thought of what  it really is.  Used as a mansard roof, they lend a  distinct touch of dignity to the plain  board structure beneath. Grouped together and piled upon each other, they  '&.-  THK  KADIAK   I1KAU   ASaCOMPAREI>   WITH   A  - -      ���������        ;       MAN. -'     '  salmon .which abound in the rivers'of  Kadiak ��������� island. lie. shows' considerable  skllkin catching them.

It seems not improbable that the Kadiak bear is a survivor of the race of gigantic prehistoric cave-bears who flourished late in the tertiary period. -    *  For a century or more he has been regarded as an animal surrounded with  mystery, and not so very long ago he was  supposed to be quasimythical. To this  very day but little is known about him,  and only very recently has he been listed  scientifically by Dr. Merriam, the famous  government ������������������ naturalist., under the name  of Ursus Middendorff. who had some  most perilous adventures with giant bears  in Alaska in earlier times.

It was stated at the time that no pri-.  vate persons could secure the property,'  as Mr. Roche had an absolute option on  its  purchase.    Nothing  has   been   heard '  of the project for several weeks. ,  Some feeling was -roused in Great  Britain by the apparent prospect of foreigners buying the estate. .The Duke of  Westminster endeavored to enlist public  interest to prevent this, and a deputation'  of members of parliament waited upon  the chancellor of the exchequer with the  idea of securing government support. The  chancellor expressed himself favorably  as to the general project of making the  parks public property, but the matter  went no further. In the house of commons Mr. Gerald Balfour, as chief secre- -  tary for Ireland, admitted that he had '  received a petition from the county council of Kerry for the nation to buy the  park, but he thought there was no public  interest in the proposal.  1 '  - 1*  STAGE GLINTS.

I  Farmers  Fleeced  of   a Million  Dollars  Annually That Liberal Government's Friends May Fatten. '  The  Winnii)eg  Telegram    tells    once  more the facts    of    the Binder Twine  bcandal.     In reply to the Free Press itj  ucys: p'  " The Free Press is endeavoring to  offset charges against-the government in  the matter of the Bate binding-twine job,'  by pretending that Bate & Sons got the  twine by public competition. .The pretence is or. course false. The job arose  out of an interview between Mr Bate  and the Minister of Justice on February.  19 1S98- After that interview Bate &,  Sons were written to and told that the  ��������� minister will be glad to receive any  offer which you may make in that con-  nectlon, such offer ro be. treated confidential^ pending a definite decision in  ueference thereto.' In response to this  ��������� remiest for a confidential offer Messrs.  Bate & Son wrote'on the 28th February  making an offer of 4% cents, 4.45 cents  ���������nd 4.95 cents, respectively, for the thiee  d'fferent varieties of twine. The gov-,  eminent then sent out to a certain lew-  ' firms dealing in twine, and all of whom  are under the control of the binder .  twine ring, a private circular asking for  lenders. Sufficient time for tendering  was not given, and it was quite understood that these select few would not  tender against the Bates. That is what  the Free Tress would have the public  be'ieve was putting the twine up to public competition. Of course, none of tht  few firms thus asked did put in tender?  mid the Bates got tho twine at their owi  price The result of the governmen  thus standing in with the ring was that  the twine the government sold at 4y2  cents a* pound was sold to the farmers  at 13 cents a pound. The Free Press  suggests that the war in the Philippines  was the cause of the price going up.  The war in the Philippines was not the  cause of the matter. But a small portion of the material from which binding  twine is made comes from the Philippine islands. A very considerable quantity i-s made from sisal, which is produced on this continent and was in no  wav affected by the war, and 400 pounds  of "every ton of twine consists of coal oil,  which  iri produced in Canada.     It was  because in'Canada twine was controlled  by a combine, into whose hands the government played,  that the farmers were  bled as they were.     Messrs. Bate & Son  almost immediately made over their cm-  tract to tho Hobbs Hardware Co., w'io  had  the  contract from the government  the .  previous    year,   who   .secuu-u     it  through  Messrs.  Coll    Bros,  the    year  before that, and who also secured it the  present  year  through  Mr.   M.  I\   Connolly.     The HobliB Hardware,Company  inn the ring, and the government played  into their hands, instead of holding this  penitentiary-made twine, as it should be  held,  for the purpose of breaking combines   against  the  farmers.     The  Free  Tress  suggests  that no  complaint    has  been  made a'bout the contract for*   the  present year.     The facts are that three  tenders   were   received   this   year���������from  the Hobbs Hardware Co., Coll Bros, and  Bate & Son.     It was discovered that the  Hobbs  Co/s  was not quite the lowest,  and it is stated that just as the time for  receiving the tenders was about to expire, a  telegram was    handed in by^  a'  member  of  the  press  gallery  tendering  on behalf of Martin P. Connolly.  The cheque accompanying the tender  of Connolly was feigned by Mr. Purdy,  the Hobbs Company's solicitor. Mr..  Connolly wa������ not in the country at all,  but down in Mexico, at the time the'  tender was made in his name; and the  contract wa^ at once, after being  awarded, handed over to the HobbA,  Company. There is no doubt that the  government twine is being'this year  controlled /by, the same ring that controlled it last year; , as it has(jbeen ever  since the present government has beeu  in power, and this is the- reason the farmers have , been paying' such' enormous  prices for it."- . ' '  It is estimated by careful and competent  authority that the   " rakeroff"   of  those  two  Grit    henchmen,  Bate  * Andf  Hobbs, oiittof this binder twine memon1-'  oly is fully $1,000,000 a-year.    In otfier  words,   through    the '  connivance    and  assistance of .the Tarte crowd at Ottawa  and the"Hardy gang,at Toronto the far-\  mors of  Canada  are    robbed  of   ,that  amount of money, for the benefit of men  who supply- grease    for    the  machine-  E*ewery<  Presh Lager tew THE BEST  STEAM-  in THE PROVINCE  eer,   Ale,   and   Porter.

The Emperor may be said to have sprung  a surprise on the Crown Prince of Sweden.  For It was on the second day of his visit  that, while sitting at table In the evening  'ut .dinner, lie biiddenly, during u pause in  the conversation, volunteered the remark in  Swedish that the weather throughout tlie  day had been abominable, but that he hoped  that It would prove fair on the, following  Uay. It seeunjJ that- the Swedes present, the  Crown Pnuce llrst aud foiemo&t, looked ut  the' Emperor for a couple of nilnuUs with  open-mouthed and open-eyed astonishment,  unable to believe their ears, until the Emperor continued to talk about other matters, fctill in tbe most fluent Swedish, Just  us If he had spoken this difficulty language  all his life. Naturally, the Swedes appreciated the dedicate compliment paid to  them by the Kaiser In taking the trouble to  learn their language, and before they rose  from table their graiiucation. f������uud expression in a speech'by the Crowu Prince,  bet me add that the Kaiser hM already  uunug the lust teu years mastered the e*������u  still more difficult Kussiup tongue, as, well  Ad a sufficient amount br'ilunaailaaito be  uble to converse In that'language, while his  l<*reuch   and   his 'English   are,    absolutely  , faultless, his accent iu English being indeed  less gutceral aud leu* forelgn^thau^Uut of  ihe Prince of Wales. This learning nnd  aWulaltlou of foreign languages-would be  a feat of no small Importance In the case  of a mau who had nothing else fto do. But  *Uh so active and busy a man sb the Kal-  ./������t;h'to������lmplr.������niMlnB.^  i Countess Warwick-has Just 'given public  txpr&iiou to her dl������appio*ral both ot uu-  loiuonlles, which she describe* as "a weariness to people who, like myself, love  horses." - As she likewise protests agalnat  the proposal.to establish"a ladles' automobile club," on the ground that there are al-  ieady far too many ladies' clubs in existence, "which tend, so she declares.-to disassociate men from , women m everything,  ' i * the disadvantage ot the fair sex, and of  society iu general.. Lady Warwick is of the  .pinion that everything, on the contrary,  should be done to biing men and women  more together..

On the, very day following hla engagement, Lord Oastlereagh  was thrown from his horse while hunting,  and was prostrated for a number of weeks  with concussion of the brain and fractured  bones, uud now that be has only Just recovered," hlB brother. Lord Reggie, has succumbed to consumption, throwing the entire family Into mourning.  Talking of Miss Cbaplln. I may mention t  that her cousin, the little Countess of Cro-  ir.urtie, who has Just celebrated her majority, and who Is a peeress In her own  right, has become engaged to a MaJ. Blunt  of the artlllcn', a relative of that Wilfihl  Blunt of the diplomatic service who Is married to the only granddaughter of the poet  Lord Byron. Of course Lady Cromartle,  who Is very diminutive, will retain her  present name and title after her marring--,  while her husband will remain MaJ. Blunt.  If a son is born to the union he will bear,  tbe courtesy title of Viscount Tarbat, and  will take precedence over his own father on  all social and official occasions. If Lady  Cromartle should predecease her husband  the difference of the rank between father  and son would become still more marked.  For, whereas the son would be the Earl of  Cromartle and a full-fledged peer of the '  realm, his father, MaJ. Blunt, would remain a mere commoner.  There are a number of peeresses In their  own right who have man led commoners,  uud who, la consequence, bear differ ������nt  names and titles to their husbands?, aud  tbe confusion thus created is still further  Increased by the fact that the widows of  peers who marry commonerB are apt to  retain the titles and names of their first  husband, even after their second marriage,  this usurpation being tolerated by society,  though it Is disapproved of at court. A notable case In point Is that of the widowed  Countess*of Grosvenor, whose present bus-  baud Is Mr. Wyndham, the under secretary  of state at the'war office, while If Lady  Randolph Churchill should pe sUt in marrying young Mr. Cornwallis West, she would  only be following English usage if she were  to continue to call herself after the marriage Lady Randolph Churchill, instead, of  Mrs.   Cornwalll3  West. ���������  At a m'oment when bo many royal personages of Europe seem Intent upon economizing their resources and hoarding their  wealth in view of rniny days, it Is pl.-asant  to place on record the generosity of the  aged Prince Regent of Bavaria,. who btiB  within the last two or three weeks given  In relief to the sufferers by the terrible-  floods In Bavaria more than twice the  amount wfclch he receives annually from the  national treasury In the form of a...civil  list He hns likewise undertaken to rebuild at his own cost the bridge bearing his  name at Munich.

No, better .illustration can be  to popular fallacies and errors respecting the origin of phrases in common use  and of familiar sayings than the receol  discovery that the expression "War is  heil" was invented by Senator Oharlea  Summer and not by Geueral Grant, as  supposed, says') the St Louis I*ost-Di������-  patch..-u v '--, , '" i    -  '- A  similar * notable' ^mistake  is- maoV;  moref requontly by -English- thaii> Ameri;;,,  can writers iu the use of the significant^  words 4*After me the deluge,'' or.^Aftsr ���������  os the ileluge,'!,which they credit to tbe -  ' epigrammatic Metternich.;,, As a matter  of fact the Austrian-prince .appropriated  the saying from the traditions of Mine.  Pompadour, and made such frequent use  of it that it came to be handed about as  from his own subtle mind.  Lord John Russell, in giving to the  English language the sadly worn phrase  ' "Conspicuous by his absence," in his ad*  dress to the electors of London,- said:  "It is not an original expression of mine, -  but is aptly from one of the greatest bis- ,  torians of antiquity." Russell omitted  to name the author, however, and th^e  is no record as yet that the antiquarian-  has found him out.  "Better .half" is from Sidney's "Ar-  cadia," wherein Argalus says to Par-  theuit:' "My dear, my better half."  ' "To rain cats and ������������>gs," Ws one of  Dean Swift's .eccentric inventions. ..  "Sweetness and light," attributed to-  Matthew Arnold, wus Swift's. The dean  was also the first literary authority to  apply the word "dust" in the sense of  money payment, a use of the substantive  which is supposed to have begun in the  early gold period of California. It secms-  tha dean hud preached a sermon on  charity so long winded that the congregation wus di&gruutled. The fact, cam*  to his knowledge. Not long afterward  he had another sermon to preach in thft  same place. This time his text was;  ���������'Ho that hath pity upon the ..poor Una**  cth to the Lord, aud that which he hatb.  given will he pay him again." The dean  after having repeated his text in ah ������������-  phatie manner, said: "Sow, my beloved brethren, you hear the'terms ot  this loan. If you like the security, down,  with your dust."  "To throw dust in the eyes" Polhemun  accredits to Epaminoudas, who, wish"  ing. to steal a march upon the Lacedas~  mon-ians, near Tegia, and seize the  heights behind them, made 1,000 of his  cavalry move on in front and ride in  such u manner as to raise a great elduA  of dust, which the wind carried into the  eyes of the enemy, under cover whereof  he executed a suoccssful flank movement  and carried his point.

BO&ERS.  [Copyright, 1898, by the Author.]  - * So  long  as  Bosenko was around tbe  plan   looked  very  good, but  when he  was gone I couldn't   help   thinking of  what would happen in  case of failure.  Every time I read of  o������e of the insurgents in   Cuba   being  garroted I had a  pain in my neck, and I had resolved to  give it up entirely when Bosenko played  his last card.    On   the day he sailed he  came to me with a list of rifles,.cannon  and cartridges he wanted and  a   lot of  provisions. I was to ship the provisions  through a   local   firm   of   brokers, who  were to' pay the   bills.    The  arms and  ammunition wore to be shipped to Cordova direct and be paid   by draft on arrival, and all I had to do was to  select  them.   Just as  I was about to throw ii  all over, Bosenko gave me a  check for  S5;00p. Thai settled it. I hadn't'owned  so. much in my life, and   I  couldn't resist.   ll cashed tlie cheok and waa a full  fledged revolutionist.  .' For a time I lived on velvet    Champagne,   big  dinners, a  dross  suit  and'  theater parties wore my solo occupation.  I .treated all   the  old   newspaper   boys  whenever I  met  them, and   tbey wero  all wild!to get into fcrado.  Iwould even  ?have \ bought   champagne  for  Tommy  Walling,, but, j-he .had. gone,,to   South  r America as correspondent of "The Globe.  The- boys-- used  to  put: in''  rraphs  r  ' about "Hosea  Boggsrtho  rising ..merchant," winch tickled' my vanity, and  ' f ��������� I bought them more champagne. In the  ���������meantime I went' to work on   the  supplies.   It was easy enough to buy   hard  'tack, cheese aud  flour, for this excited  no suspicion, but buying arms was different,   ^.consulted ctbe selling   agents  '    of  all the different firms, but it   was a  . ' delicate matter.   Several expeditions to  Cuba had  been stopped by the authori-  TtiesPah'd   I was' cautious.'   The'   prices  demanded   were,, exorbitant,,  but;..the  " agents'explained  toine  that.'consider-  '    ing  the  risks  and   commissions,' they  could do'no,- better.    The word "coin-  ���������   missions" gave "me a hint, and  I asked  what commission I would be allowed.  ������������������^The^usual^rnte,''j'they  said, "but  ���������perhaps^*we   had- 'better   be   specific.  , '.'^What's, your, .idea?"   ,1 hadn't an  idea  %��������� in the-.',world, -but  thought 5 "per  cent  .   'liberal.   In order to  get it I considered  I must ask .more,and   then come,down,  ,,sq J>said: -  "How, does.20 per cent strike you?"  .    ���������-.} ^They.looked'/at  me  curiously for a  moment and said:-.     >   ,    ,  '- (VA.:*"iWill!that be entirely satisfactory?,"  '���������'I now saw that 1 bad asked too little,  .    ..������������������bufit'was to'o late, and I closed at "that  /. .-'.figure,;Vthpugh'i I  heard   one  of .them  ' '-'' whisper to "another, '"Dead easy.': -  '-_   All; liTi's"'took, time, "but it  was ar-  *rarigedvthafc the arms should be shipped  .^whenever I- gavo the word, which   was  * ^not to  be until the .provisions were  in  "Cordova arid-"'the men arranged for.   I  now  made  up   my  mind  to  sbip   the  ���������goods and   arms, take my   commissions  and'back out of  the whole   affair; but,  wnicb l dared not reiuse. That afternoon the provisions were shipped, and  the agent and I had a lunch at Savarin's,  during which four cold quarts were  offered as libations to the god of revolution. I got baek to the office at 7o.'clock  and wrote out a cablegram1 to Bosenko,  announcing the shipment. It was nearly  dark, the electric lights were in trouble, and the wine made me giddy. I  wrote out the message as follows:  Bosenko, Cordova:  Shipped by steamer Barcelona���������  5,000 flour., ' r  1,000 cheeses.,      ,    ' '  100 niefai porlc.  75 casea biscuit.  1,000.003 hard tack.  Biggerslaff will draw on sight.  . Everything going well.  Hosea Boggs.  This did not need a cipher, as provisions were not contraband nor likely to  arouse suspicion. I rang for a messenger, but on reading the message it looked so illegible that I concluded to copy  it on the typewriter. I went to the desk  and copied it hurriedly and handed it  to the boy without .reading. He soon  came back and said , I must sign my.  naino and address on the back and told  me tho amount it cost, which seemed  largo, but I was flushed with wine and  careless, paid him and rushed for a  train to the country, where for two daya  I made merry with friends, so glad was  I to get ou5 part of the business off my  hands. .<. ^   '  I was coming back to town Tuesday  ,with a dark brown taste in ' my mouth  .and a-bad headache, when I bought The  'Globe and .looked carelessly at it. In a  , minute my head was on "fire. There "in  glaring headlines was the following  ,double leaded dispatch: '  ! another revolution.  #.n Attempt to Seize  'the Government of  Castaragua Frustrated.  A BIG SCHEME BLOCKED. "  San  Boggs  of New York Ships  Men  and  Ammunition to Cordova.   .  WOSENKO IS IN JAIL.  The New York Conspirator to Be Arrested-,by  the United States Officers.  (Special Cable to the New York Globe.   Copy-  -. ..  bright, 189���������.),,.,.      ,,,_., s',  Cordova, July  9.���������A  sensation  waa caused  here today by the.arreet of General Hernando  Bosenko, charged by.President Cuzco with attempting a revolution.   The city is wild. ,withv  excitement.   The revolution,will not succeed.'  It seem3 that Saturday night General Bosenko received a cablegram' from' his New Zork  ���������gent, Hosea Boggs, as follows: f  t Shipped by steamer Barcelona���������  5,000 rifles.      .<���������; ���������  1,000 revolvers:    - ' , D     '  , 100 cannon < rifled). '  75 good soldiers.  1,000,000 c-artridges.', -   ���������   ,  Government will recognize revolutionists.  Monroe doctrine goss. -  This'cablegram, was lying on.Gcnerill "Bo-  senko's desk when your correspondent called  "Sunday morning.? The goncial was out. Your  correspondent saw it wjis important, as it wa>-  in cipher. Fortunately the key/was" in one o:  the general'3 pigeonholes (they are very careless down here), and yo'ur correspondent soon  deciphered the message, though there were  many mistakes, evidently in transmission.  With Tne Globe's usual enterprise, President  Cuzco was informed, and last night Bosenko  was lodged in jail. The United States was  wired through the San Castaraguan minister  at Washington to arrest Hosea Boggs, who, it  will   bo  remembered, was  a  partnor 'in  tlie  offioe and write a letter to The Globe  demanding a retraction. My message  was not in cipher, and I could prove  that'it wasn't, so I felt suro of making  a good case of it, but resolved to drop  Bosenko forever.  On arriving at my office I found a lot  of newspaper men aud two dignified  strangers -who demanded to see me privately at once. I told the boys that I  would see them later, that it was ull  right, and asked the strangers in. One  was the San Castaraguan consul at New  York aud the other was a United States  deputy marshal. In a few words I explained that the dispatch was a lie, but  they did not seem convinced, whereupon  I handed them the original cablegram  Which I had written, and fortunately  preserved. They studied it' for some  time, and finally the marshal said:  "It would be much,more satisfactory,  Mr. Boggs, to see the one you sent  away. Can you seud for it to the telegraph office?"  "Certainly," said I, ringing a messenger call, and writing a note to the  superintendent, asking for the message  on file.  This seemed to  satisfy the two men.  and I told them that in the meantime 1  would write   out a .statement  for-the  newspaper   men   who  wero   waiting.'-  They agreed, and , I- wont   to  the typewriter and Began.  I am a good operator  and seldom look at my copy whilo writ-  ' ing, but'Twas very nervous.' ,I:started,  out to explain   the   situation. ^Haying  written three lines I turned up the cyl "*  inderto look at it, and-my ham.tood-  on end.  Here is what it read:  sNy gaf idiitax kz Brxbyjko mabpleas:  '   ? ahid ip nowe bxt  yhan  tarw said meahj  'inayt ziosxy tatr ian. Tzraim kl..m b tastiwq.

The resulc was  that the balloon caused the parachute to  burn upside down and the aeronaut was  left helpless. Thousands were shocked by  this sight, but none mors so than one of  Screator's popular young women to whom  Professor Thayer was soon to have been  married.  Professor Merighfc. > an Austrian aeronaut and scientist of note, was reported  to have made a most extraordinary  attempt and failure to commit suicide in  a, balloon recently. For years he had  made ascensions from the Prater 'in  Vienna on pleasant Sundays. On the  occasion referred' to. after rising: to a  dizzy height above Gratz, ne is said to  have slashed the silk of the- balloon and  thrown himself out of his car during the  descent. This was done in view of a,large  multitude.' His limbs were broken, and  ho,was so badly injured that'recovery  was deemed improbable Upon investigation it was discovered that Professor  Mcright had'deliberately planned to kill  himself in this sensational, manner. He  had been crazed by his unsuccessful  efforts to perfect aerial navigation. -Ho'  left a message in the oar, in his own  handwriting, which said, "I die in peace.  1 have reached my goal." Tho balloon in  which Professor Moright made his last  ascent was constructed in "Vienna, and  had a capacity of 1,600 cubic meters, and  was valued at $5,000. ' '      '   ���������  It was only last September that next  to the highest balloon ascension on record  was made in Lonaon from ths Crystal  Palace, Sydenham, by'Stanley Spencer,  the noted aeronaut', and Dr. Hereon. The  balloon, which was inflated with pure  hydrogen and bad1 a capacity of 56,300  cubic feet, attained an altitude of 27.500,  feet. At a height of 25,000 feot the air  was so rarJ.fied that the occupants of the  car. were compelled to breathe compressed  oxygen by tubes. The temperature was  61 degrees below freezing point.

It- is  a   perilous   business he follows.  Sometimes^the parachute   jumper   is engaged   for   an   entire season   by the big  excursion steamers   pry-ins   on   the great  lakes.    His .spectacular feats go to swell  Cho patronage derived from   that   class of  pleasure seekers who are equatic in their  predictions. He makes his ascents from  the upper deck, amid salvos of applause,  and is watched   with the keenest interest  and   excitement   until   it   comes   down  kerplunk in the   water.    It   is   perhaps  .more agreeable   to   drop   into   the water  than to fall on a housetop or get tangled  up in a   tree,   but   even   in   the aquatic  ' work there is great danger, for if the performer is not an expert swimmer, drowning is almost certain to be his fate before  his engagement ends.    It   is   the rule to  , send a crew of rercuers in a  boat   to fol-  -. low his aerial flight as closely as possible  nnd pick him   up   as soon   as he can be  reached.-  i Already this season. Frank Reynolds  at Corry, Pa., E M. East, in a1 Minnesota  lake Charles Keef(at; Cleveland, W. A.  Thayer atStreator, 111., have met death,  while there have been innumerable narrow escapes.  Oiie of the most thrilling fights for life  in midair this season was that of Balloonist W. A. Thayer at Streator, 111..  July 27. He fought bravely, but tho  odds wero against hinr and ho lost the  battle. Thayer went to Streator from  Collins. Mich, to make an ascension at  the picnic given by the local camps of  the Modern Woodmen of America. Early  in the afternoon, everything being in  readiness, he started on his aerial voyage.  ,'ibe balloon rose rapidly to a height of  about 1,000 feet and then drifted toward  thf southwest.  , - Suddenly the balloon began to descend  quickly and the. parachute opened. Thousands of spectators were watching   every  movement.    They   were   seized   with i a  panic of terror when they saw the irantio  tut unsuccessful attempts   of   Thayer to  loosen the   parachute   from   the balloon.  Time and again   in   the short space of a  few seconds he could be se9n using every  effort  and   straining   every   muscle and  nerve to free himself from his parachute,  until all of a sudden the balloon collapsed.  A few seconds later    Thayer   struck   the  ground. He was dead when the first man  reached his side.    He   fell   a   distance of  200 feet, landing on his back on   a   railroad track. His back, neok, both legs and  both arms   were   broken.    It seems that  when he attempted to make his parachute  descent the balloon   turned   over and the  gas escaped.

"For 60 years I have been a minister,  and I reckon I have brought thousands  of souls from perdition. If I haven't it  ain't my fault.. I have worked bard  enough.''  The text of Jasper's famous sermon is  Exodus, chapter 15. verse 3, "The Lord  is a Man of war. The Lord is His name."  The theories advanced are: The earth is  square and immovable. The sun rises in  the east and moves toward the west and  there.sets.  The world is flat.  "The Bible says the sun stood still."  he announces dogmatically! "Is anybody  going to say the sun was" standing still  before Jasher told it to stand still? Do  you think Jasher would have asked the  privilege to stop the sun if she had not  been moving? This rooming when the  sun rose it was over there (pointing to  the east). How, in the name of God.  could the sun get from that side of the  house over to this (pointing to the west)  unless it moved?  "Now, Solomon was certainly a scholar.  Do you know he was the man who said:  'The sun ariseth and goeth down and  hasteneth back to tbe place he moved  from.'. It is nonsense to say the sun does  not move. The man who says the sun  doe3   not   move   he   does   not. read the  Couldn't Pass Good Money.

While I rub and bathe I keep  up a running fire of explanation, that  gradually interests my ��������� most indifferent  patient.  "I  tell  her of the  Venezuelan  native  ���������who walks like Diana and whose foot is  as pleasant to tfee touch as the,-daintiest,  most intelligent hand, who sleeps like a  baby and rarely gets a wrinkle until she  is nO, and all this chiefly because of the  sandal she wears.    I explain the,meaning  and importance of these sole nerves, that  might be truthfully written soul nerves,  that are almost the most sensitive in the  body  and that tire  racked and  tortured  by the hot, jarred joints, crushed  nails,  corn infested  toes. and.  worst of all, by  being crushed together to fit a shoe bottom that is only,one-half as wide as the  foot  itself.     It is  a   powerful  argument  when I show a 'woman her naked foot in  all    itst  objectionable,    ghastly    pallor,  swollen   veins  and   red   knobs,   and   ask  her if she thinks she would bear the pain  of subjecting  her   hand   to   a   vise  that  could reduce it to such a state of anguish  and ugliness.  "She is not apt to doubt my word when  I   prove   that   her   bodily   fatigue,   the  wrinkles between her eyebrows and her  hop and go fetch  it gait are all the result of her valiant efforts to steer herself along and ease the pressure as much  as  possible 6u  her tightly  clinched  feet  that have neither air nor swift circulation of blood, and yet on them is cast all  the weight and work of the body.    Some  women know by instinct  how nearly the  nerves  of their  feet   are   related   to   the  nerves    of    their    heart,    stomach    aiitl  .brains, and Mme. Calve is one of them.  When    anxiety    ami    hard    work    press  upon her, she puts off slippers and stockings.

After   this   she   lies  down and has her maid gently chafe the  bottoms of  her  feet   till   she drops  into  a deep sleep, whence she comes soothed  and vigorous for any amount of work.

Here   is what a   prominent   newspaper map, who latelycpaid a visit,  ��������� has to say about it in The World:  At Union a  great  deal of work  was fpund  going on.,  Like, other  t    western towns, it ��������� has reached thai  ��������� 0pngy stage  in its career when  the  ;   next coat pf  paipt is badly  needtd  on its buildings. , This work may  Lave   been delayer! as   pne   of the  results of the Trent river bridge accident, but now that  the line is a-  gain running and prospects rapid  ly brightening the  paint will soon  come, and a good many of the p->ts  - will be vermillion' in "hue    A good  many improvements ,were  noticed  since the last visit of The  World  man tp Cumberland.    The school,  a   splendid   work   of  the  present  member,   James   Dunsmuir,  is at  hist   completed,    and    takes   first  place   for  light,  convenience  and  prchitexiural beauty amongst those  pf the Province.    A' lot   of  small  buildings have been completed and  many other improvements, such" an  the installation of several acetylene  gas plants,   have been carried  out.  Heapl an$ shoulders above  all else,  hpvkever,   rises  the  sinking  of the  new shaft No.   6.    This is  right in  the  town,   just   across  the   s:reet  from   the   school   building.      Six  nipnths' work was expended in put-  x ting it  down,   and   now   the   top  works, the scaffolds and tia'cks ai d  scrt-ens are being pui in.    Anotuer  week and   coal  will begin   to  flow  put.    This will   be taken   from the  big 12-foot  seam at  the bottom of  the shaft, 614  feel down,   no work  being; cpntennplatecl  for seme time  pn the 300-iopt  level,   where   coal  was first   met in   a six   f< ot seam.  This last id the s^me seam worked  fjor many  years by the No. 1 and  No 2 tunnels, while the lower seam  \s indentified  with that at present  working in No. 5 shaft, with whose  workings  ornirnunication from the  new shaft will foon   be established.  Both s'-ems keep up the high grade  quality  that has   so  firmly established   Union   amongst    the   be.-t  camps of  the we-t.    The coke ovens at the  whhrf, too,   are blowing  in a. aii!, aii^l \viil gnon be running  a   tli(,V.i   lull   capacity   of 250   tons  '),VV day.     Tn rc-buiiding  %\w.

By crossing some  distance below the ill-fated bridge  a long fill and trestle gave a lower  crossing, and the storm piers now  reach some 30 feet above the river  bottom against the more than  thre.e times that height of the old  structure. Gradients'are not quite  so favorable, and an additional  mile of track is needed. Much of  this was through several feet of  hard-pan, which occasioned a great  deal of work in its cutting. The  settlement generally bears a very  prosperous appearance. Good,  crops have been harvested, and  go- d prices are obtained on the  spot for all produce. The camp itself seems very contented, and  both company and men working  happily together bid fair to make  of Cumberland a city remarkable  for both peace and  prosperity.  The    care   bestowed   upon   the  camp  by the  colliery  company is  well illustrated in many ways.    At  the surg ery forinstance, where the  employees  receive free   treatment,  everything  is  of  the  latest.' ^The  first X-ray  machine in  the Province  was installed  there,  and-one  of the finest set of test glasses for  the eyes has lately been  added to  the equipment.    A   night   school,  too,  has   lately   been  established,  and other means of eveningamus-  ment and instruction are not lacking.  (The writer is mistaken about  free treatment. The men pay $1  per month into the medical fund.)
