Hall Tuesday night was ������  decided success. The hall was ar  tisticaliy decorated ��������������������������� by. Messrs  Lsndells, Parkins, McPh'ee and  Haliiday, and the soft light of  Chinese lanterns gave a very pleasing effect. The floor was in perfect  condition and the music good.  Notwithstanding a. stormy night  and bad roads almost everyone invited attended and the unanimous  approval with which the committee's decision to give another dance  the 28th ins% was received is evidence that all thoroughly enjoyed  themselves. Many very nice dresses were worn by the ladies present  The white, the pink and white, and  cream costumes were especially  pretty.  how_.to get-there was,-"the^question!  says the .Chicago Iriter-OceanrJ'ack-i  put on his thinking, cap,'..and5'tvKe,  result was that two.hours liter^hajl  found himself on a train   and'* fthovi  conductor-standing by his seat.'

He paid over to" the representative of  the dons a snug: little sum of $20,000,000  in consideration of certain, unpaciiiec!  Pacific islands known as the Philippine group.  A real estate deal, of such proportions  has seldom been recorded, but it was  done with no more fuss and feathers  than some people would lug- into the  purchasing- of two acres of meadow  land.   Here is the way it was done:  The preliminary negotiations havin,?  been 'settled, United States Treasurer  Roberts received from the superintendent of the bureau of printing and engraving four very artistic sheets about  as large as a sheet of note paper opened  out flat.  Each of these sheets was a warrant  for $5,000,000, made payable to Spai'n.  Treasurer Roberts affixed to these valuable pieces of paper his familiar signature, which you may see on any 51  ���������ilver certificate. Then he called a clerk  and sent,them over to the office of Secretary Hay.  Secretary Hay in turn- notified M.  Cambon, the- French embassador, that  he was- ready to conclude that little  bargain which had been agreed upon in  Paris. The embassador, who has been  acting as ago between for us. since the  ' beginning of hostilities with Spain,  walked* down to the state department  and .produced his authority from the  Spanish government to receive the  money.  , Secretary Hay glanced at the docu-  -nents and handed-them- over for, filing.  Then'he gave M. Cambon. the four Si>,-  900,000 warrants. M. Cambon then signed four receipts for the whole amount.  tTNITED STATES TREASURER ROBERTS SIGNING-SPAIN'S WARRANTS.  Oneof these he will keep, another will  be sent to Mr.. Storer, our new minister  to Spain; a third will go to Mr. Porter,  our embassador to France, and the  fourth was .for filing in the treasury  department.  That was all. M. Cambon folded up  the sheets which 'represented a royal  fortune, put them in a cardcase and  dropped the case into his inside coat  pocket. Then he sat down and chatted  with Mr. Hay a few moments, incidentally touching on the probabilities  of the "Washington baseball team winning another game.  No dignitaries were present at this  meeting with the exception of those  mentioned. There were, however, some-  enthusiastic and ambitious photographers, who pressed the button with  feverish energy.  Shadowing the photographers was a  secret service "officer, who mademost of  the button pressing null and void by  watching .the negatives developed arid  seizing those on which appeared reproductions of the warrants. It is against  the law of the land to reproduce by  photographic or other process any of  the money which Uncle Sam issues,  and .while no one would think of trying  to pass a $5,000,000 treasury warrant,  counterfeit or otherwise, the secret  service sleuth hounds intend to take no  chances.  These treasury warrants are payable  In gold, but instead of cashing them in  this country the Spanish government,  has arranged to swap them for bills of  exchange. Thus there will be no necessity for taking a vast amount of gold  bullion across theocea'n.  But this transaction seems small indeed compared with the Franco-German settlement which followed the  great war between those two nations.  By the treaty of May 10, 1S71, France  agreed to pay Germany an indemnity  of just fifty times that amount, or $1,-  000,000,000.  Says George H. Roberts, director of  the mint, in writing of this in a recent  article: "About $400,000,000 was to be  paid within one year and the remaining  $600,000,000 on March 2, 1S74. The total  stock of coin in France at that time  was estimated at.little more than $1,-  000,000,000; hence it was supposed that  France would lose practically her entire store of metallic money.  "As a matter of fact, only $148,473,818  Was paid in coin and bank notes, and  $S49,65S,273 was settled in bills of exchange. This included the interest due.  "To provide funds the French government made two loans,  aggregating  a little over the above total. The bulk  of these loans was placed at home,  with the French people, and of the  rentes (bonds) sold abroad it was calculated at the close of 1874 that practically, all had returned to France and  become the property of Frenchmen.  "Great as was the achievement of the  French people in thus absorbing in  three years government securities  amounting to $1,000,000,000, it is worthy  of remark that the American, people  surpassed it in the summer of 189S, when  In response to one invitation to take  t200,000,000 of United Slates bonds they  lubscribed for over $1,400,000,000."   FRAXCIS TALMERT.  WHOLE  WHEAT,  FLOUR.  THE HUNTING LODGE  Tlie PrircHt In tlie World ana Makes  tlie Best Oread Hvnowit.  Dr.   Nichols,   editor  of   the  Boston  Journal   of  Chemistry,   once  said:- "I  entertain the proformdest respect for a  grain of wheat.    It is the most marvelous combination of  substances admirably adapted   for  the  building  up and  sustenance of  tbe tissues of the human  body."    Baron   von   Liebig   predicted  some time ago that the universal eating  of white flour would result in disaster  White   flour,   although   it   may   be  made from the finest wheat grown, does  not and cannot make healthful, strength  producing   bread, because  it  has been  robbed of  the gluten, which   is the ni-  trogenized   nutritive  element  that the  Almighty intended and decreed should  be the blood making, brain feeding portion   of  the   wheat   berry. ' Gluten   is  never white in, color, and   every housewife should bear in mind the fact tbat  starch, which is the inferior .element of  wheat,   constitutes  almost   the   entire  bulk of the foolishly fashionable white  flour that   is  causing  so much lack of  development among  children and making so many strong adults weak.  :   Even  graham   flour  cannot   make a'  bread   that   is  easy  of   riigestion   and  nourishing to the -body, because it contains a large proportion of  the woody,  coarse and oftentimes dirty outer husk,  which has no.food value whatever, but  which w7as  intended  only as  a protection and covering for  the pure and exquisitely  proportioned   food   elements  constituting the matured wheat kernel.  'Graham'bread is apt to be irritating to  weak stomachs and to leave the stomach  before it   has  had   time to be digested  and assimilated.  Flour,of the entire wheat is without  doubt the purest flour in the world and  makes the best bread now known to  housekeeping or culinary science, because it , contains (reduced to an even  fineness) -all* the bone,. muscle, brain  and nerve feeding elements of the  wheat kernel, so unfortunately lacking:  in white flour, and is entirely free from  the woody.outer husk that makes gra-.  ham flour so coarse and often so indigestible. The beautiful, light, golden  brown bread made from this flour has.a  rich,. satisfying flavor that no other  bread can possess, and it has no equal  among the products of wheat as a natural, healthful and strength building  food, says tho Boston Cooking School  Magazine, authority for the foregoing.  OF  "GOOD QUEEN   BESS"   IN   EPPING  FOREST IS TO BE RESTORED.  Corporation of London Will Provide for  the Expense' of the Work ��������� Qitieeit  ���������liznbutli Used to Kido Up stud Down  tlie Lodjje Stairs -l-'ull Description of  the Historic Structure.  Seventeen years ago, by the exertions  and at the expense of the Corporation of  London, Epping Forest was dedicated by  the Queen to the use and enjoyment; o'f  ber subjects. The amount paid exceeded  a quarter of a million pounds, and the  Corporation of London were appointed  conservators of tho forest.  At the same time Qu^en Elizabeth's  Lodge was transferred to them - as an  object of public and antiquarian interest.  The lodse seems undoubtedly to belong  to tho Tudor period. The roof, appearing  to belong to an earlier date than r,he  reign of Elizabeth, seems to add force to  the claim that it was built'in the reign  of Henry VII. toward the end of tho  fifteenth century.  Just recently the corporation decided to  expend $2,500 on restoring the lodge in  aec6rdance with the recommendations  submitted to them by Mr. ..T. O.  Scott.  , In his report Mr. Scott points out that  when the building was "restored" 14  years ago the object; seemed to have been  to mako the building appear new, and he  recommends the removal of the partition  on the first floor, taking away the plaster,  "restoring the woodwork, providing a new  oak floor and ceiling, adding four new  windows, and restoring the exterior. The  corporation have decided that the work  shall bo begun-at once.  The lodge' is an oblong structure.of  timber, 30 feet by 20 feet, consisting of  three stories, with gable ends and high-  pitched roof,' tlie staircase ��������� projecting  from the hall. , The massive timbers are  still in particularly good condition, the  walls being upright and tbe floors level.  According to tradition tho building  was used by Queen Elizabeth as a   lodge  DETAILS OF FASHION.  Decorating the   Hair���������Sew  Hats  and  Various Accessories.  Without   the   "distracting  details'  we are nowhere or anywhere, for we at  once'eease to be individual and become  merely dull, negative  items of  the social and modistic scheme."  Take the clinging pailletted gown of  black  lace, that is  becoming not only  familiar, but  positively ubiquitous for  evening  wear.    Where would   that   be  without  the' now decreed  accompaniments  of a  smartly dressed  coiffure,-  pearl dog collars, diamond slides, loops'  ' of pearls and the shorter chains of diamonds and turquoise?   By such means  and such means only do we contrive to  differentiate ourselves from our neigh--  bors and .become of noticeable value.    ,  Very.assuredly has the fancy for decorating the hair crystallized itself into  u vogue. ' The exception   now is to find  .r head  unadorned with  evening dress.  And the choice is most amiably catholic,  ranging as  it does from   towering diamond tiaras to little wisps of tulle and  chaplets of flowers.-   But here are some  of the latest and best approved notions  for  your special  delectation, the  portraitures combining to show atone and  the same time novelties for the neck as  well as the head.  At the top is shown a turban of tulle  caught low down on to the. forehead  with a diamond brooch, the remainder  of the tulle being twisted into a knot at  the right side. ��������� Round the neck is worn  a diamond snake with ruby eyes���������a  decorative detail that may be found  curling its insidious way with like fancies at the'jewelers' shops.  A prettily   shaped   wreath   of  those  small pink-Banksia roses that all'Paris  is crazy over is  set coquettishly on one  side  of the head, high   loops  of  paler,  pink tulle  standing up  smartly at the  SOU'S COLOB IS BLUE.  SO  SAYS   PROF.    LANGLEY   OF  SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTE.  THE  A Stylish Sill* Waist.,  The sketch illustrates a very charming blouse in pale green glace silk, with  a short basque bound at the edge with  black velvet and trimmed very prettily  with a stitching in black silk cord.  This trimming of velvet and openwork  QUEEX ELIZABETH'S IIUXTIXG LODGE,  when she resorted to the Forest to hunt,  and it is said that she used to ride up  .and down1 tho stairs, which are constructed in such a 'manner that it would not  have been a very difficult feat, each stair  Doing a solid oak'beam, and the numerous landing places being very broad. A  horse block at ono time stood on the topmost landing. Tbe top floor consists of  one large room, with an . arched timber  roof.  Whether or not Queen Eliazbeth rode  up the lodge stairs, there is no doubt tbat  she believed in exorcise, as the following  extract from a letter to the Earle of  Rutland shows:  "Her Majesty desires that you should  remember her request to you, which was  that you should indever to pcrfecte your  healthe with exercyse, and saeth she  knoeth you are lyke her in that she is  not delyghted with anye sport much, yet  for healthe sake, and because you shall  plose her therein, she would you should  enforce yourselfo to such exercyscs as  agre with you.'! '  The Essex Field Club has; for some  years, used the large room on the upper  floor as a museum, illustrating the  natural history of the forest,and the landings of the staircase contain maps, plans/  and views of the forest and a small collection of books on Essex. '  The museum also contains a large  number of geological specimens. The  forest is particularly rich in flora, and is  a happy hunting ground for the entomologist; and the lover of nature who is  interested in the mysteries of pond life.  The Essex Field Club, are desirous of  making their collection as complete as  possible, but they are hampered for want  of room.  The Corporation of the City of London  will keep this object specially in. view in  carryinc out the restoration, and tho club  will therefore in a short space of time be  enabled to make a fuller display of their  exhibits.

When  the question was put' to her directly,  she exhibited nary a flinch, but, smiling languidly, remarked: '  "I am the youngest of 12 daughters  and 18 brothers."  "Impossible!" exclaimed all- of the  women except the hostess, who contemplated the figures on her fan with  a drawn, dreary smile.  "Not "at all." replied the guest.

Before a battle in former times the  priests solemnly devoted to the gods  the whole of the hostile army then in  sight, and. if possible, no man of it  was left alive. A writer in The Nineteenth Century says that when Hermann decoyed tho great host of Varus  Jnto the forest depths all the Romans  that escaped death in the battle were  captured arid led into the dark recesses, where every man of them was sacrificed upon hastily erected altars.  Latham, in his edition of Tacitus,  quotes six contemporary authorities to  I show that this practice of concluding  a victory with human sacrific.es was  customary among our Teutonic ances-  tor������5. Some ^ruc-ified their prisoners,  others hung them up to trees for archery practice, but iu,general a captive  was eitlier slain,ou the spot or else'reserved to be sacrificed to the'gods.  Eveu when the progress of agriculture  induced them to keep aJ majority of  the prisoners alive to'be slaves they  appeased tlie gods for this indignity  by increasing the tortures inflicted on  the small reinaiudoiv  Gibbon describes how. before the  blazing altar, every r hundredth man's  arms were hacked off him and, before  his eyes, thrown into the flames.

Therapeutic effects of different kinds  have been attributed to laughter by the  gravest medical writers from Hippocrates downward. The father of medicino  laid special stress on the importance of  merriment at meals. The old physicians  recommended laughter as a powerful  means of "desopilating" the spleen.  Fonssagrives said that mirth is the most  powerful lever of health. Tissot professes to have cured scrofulous children  by tickling and making them laugh. Du-  mont do -Monteaux relates the strange  case of a, gentleman who got rid of an  intermittent fever after witnessing a performance of "Le Manage de Figaro,"  at which he had laughed consuniedly.  Other learned doctors state that nephritic  colic, scurvy, pleurisy and other affections aro favorably influenced by laughter.���������Medical Journal.  Power of  tlie Press.

It lacks but  four yeara to make it centenarian.    The  initial strike of American labor whb that  of the journeymen boot makers of Philadelphia.   It was repeated'in 1798 and  . 17i)D. the object aii increase of wagoa.  In 180"J occurred the New York sailors'  strike.     Hero   the  strikers   compelled  other seamen to leave their ships���������a step  that  caused   the   muster of the tow������  guard, the arrest of the loader and the  tgnominous failure of the   strike.    In  1805 the shoemaking  guild  of Philadelphia ro'peated thoir previous experiments, but were fined for "conspiring to  raise their wages.''   In 1809 the Now  York cordwainers imitated their Philadelphia brethren of St. Crispin. ' In 1813  ' the shoemaker laid down his awl and  last at Pittsburg and ended his claim for  higher pay by getting on the wrong side  of the jail "t^oor and contributing to the"  city exchequer.    In 1821 the  printer*  inaugurated their first strike at Albany,,  N.Y., as a protest ugainst tho employment of non union men.   The agitation  for shorter hours was startedin 1830 at  . Boston.   In 1834 the laborers  on the  -Providence railroad made a wage de-.  ' inand and were subsequently handled by  the local militia; 1835 saw the first big  iiiill strike at* Paterson,' N. J., resulting  In twenty-six weeks' idleness and a loss.  of $24,000 in wages.   Prom 1836 to 1843  some  fifteen  strikes    were    reported,  in  three of  which   the   militia  bad  to shoulder their, muskets to prevent  rioting.   In   1842 ��������� was inaugurated the  struggle of the ironworkers in the Pitts- >  burg district.

In * 1868 and 1869 some seventeen strike*  occurred, while from 1871 to 1876 they  were numerous than ever.   In 1877 occurred the great railroad strike in which  the military arm was called into service.  The  damage  done  in   Pittsburg was  placed by government experts at $3,000,-  000..- In 1880 the strike slate had a total  of 762.

"S p. in.���������Countercharge by national  ' - ������������������    forces.  "4p. in.���������Engagement'ends for tho'  drtj.  ''"7 p. m.���������Dinner (evening dress).  , "This continues aa many days as circumstances and provisions allow. Usnal-  " , ly on tho fifth  day the, insurgents  put-  Ibe government forces to flight (by pre-  arrangernent) and  enter   the capital in  triumph.    The   soldiers  rob the' stores  .nnd do a moderate amount  of  looting,  .,   which the government pays for, and all  are happy.   Cuzco takes a  special train  '  '   to Cordova, boards hiis steam yacht and  ���������' f-cils away:   If it is summer, he'goes to  Carlsbad, where ho has a fine villa.    If  it is -winter, ho retires to  his  magnifi-,  cent plnntation   in  Cuba.    Six months  later ho returns to San Castaragua, the-  "    revolution starts up  again, and  in the  '   end Moreno;leaves with   tho  money he  >    has squeezed out of the  country."  "That's a pretty gpod gnruo," said I,  "but I should think it would fail some-,  ���������times."''  "Oh,   it's  understood   that   once  in  r three times the insurgents  are  routed.  ''     That's - to  fool  tbe natives.    Then tho :  president   issues   a  proclamation   and  lovies  hew "taxes and !gets  richer than  ". ever. ' The trouble now is that Moreno  is old and  has  the gout.    He must bo  .,   worth SI0,000,000 and' lives in Paris  ���������A He says  ho won't revolnto, any more,  .aud for   18' month's wo   haven't' had &  "  change'"; It's getting monotonous  arid  ,  ., injures    trade.    Tho   syndicate "hasn't  ,  made a sale, and the  English   bankers  - are'restive. You see, after each revolo  : ;, "Hon) does twenty per centstrtke you?"  ���������  ���������      - r - , >  ,  tion-tbe .syndicate buys   back   the arms  at about 10 per cent of what they originally sold'them for, giving all the officials a fair rake off, but .there has been  Eorne trouble lately. There are now' 296  major generals and it  is  impossible to  support them all without  a   revolution  once in awhile.  Tho syndicate has been  in negotiation with  several   prominent  man to start up the game, hut the trouble is with the  English banking syndicate.  The debt is now about $800,000,-  000, aud, though the country is rich, it  is bard to  raise the interest unless the  taxes are  increased.    Tho bankers only  want to pav 40 per cent this time, as an  enormous amount must bo raised to satisfy the men who have, been waiting so  "Jong.   At   the  last revolution   one  of  "Cuhco's cannon burst and killed  eight  men.   This  made bis army think there  -yas a rear attack, aud' fhey rushed forward right into Moreno's array iu spite  of   all  the  officers could  do.   Moreno  tried to stop his  men  from  firing, but  too late, and, before  he could run up a  whito flag and surrender to the retreating army of Cuzco, 19 men wero killed  ;jnd others  injured.   This cast a gloom  over the  entire  community and  made  the nativeE auspicious.  But the government gave liberal pensions and the affair  blew over."  "But it eeems to me," said I, "that  ������S00,000,000 is a fearful debt for such  a country as San Castaragua. It must  have taken a great many revolutions to  pile all that up. I should think the  bankers would get cautious about advancing more money."  "They are. But revolutions didn't da  it all. Reorganization is responsible for  much of it."  " What's reorganization?"  ' "Why, it's refunding, just like you do  here with railroad companies.    The A.  and   B.  R. _.  company  goes into the  hands of  a .receiver.    A' committee of  hankers form a syndicate, and the'bond-  ii-lders form   several committees to reorganize the  finances.    If  the original  dt-btwas ������100,000,000, the stockholders  sro assessed ������20,000,000, and the total  c-.Titiili-rUion   raised   to   $150,000,000.  -'.re security holders get .squeezed, but  1  e syndicate and tho  committeo get a  l.':������ rake off, and the  company is 'reorganized'' until it goes into a receiver's  L.inds again, as  it'usually does  in ten  y.>:rrs, when the process is repeated.   In  t-m Castaragua this has benn done sov-  i-.::il Limes with tho government bonds,  r.iul tho English  bondholders kick, but  r..yy can't do anything, as the Cordova  j iiglish bankers stand in with the government.    Sometimes these bankers get  a;snap.   Three   years ago Cuzco landed  t) make a revolution.    He issued  $5,-  ( j0, 000 in bonds, paid the syndicate as'  ! 'isual for the arms and ammunition, but  .t'-.is t:iken with tho gont just as he was  j-i'ady to move on - the  capital.    So' he  s.iled away in his yacht aud postponed  iterations for six months.  The bankers  \\ ere wild at first, as the bonds had not  Lean approved by the government.   But  tl':e  syndicate  fixed, the  matter up by  giving < up 10 per  cent of  the  money.  The Moreno  government  never discovered that the new issue wasn't regular,  and the .interest was  paid right along  until'Cu'zco  came iu   next  time, when  evetyt'hing'was arranged.   But the game  is.pretty near ended.   It.won't he possible  to  make  more   than one  issue'of  bonds now, for the country can't stand  it. I think that inside of a year England  will  come  over  aud  take   the   whole,  country for the debt.    That's  the way  they do.   No nonsense.  Pay up that interest or. we will take your whole shooting match, and  nobody does interfere  with England.  . "Now," he continue^ after lighting  a fresh cigarette, "r_y plan is*this: I  am going to...get up a revolution on my  own account. lam on the'outs with  the syndicate, who won't sell me a  thing, but I have made arrangements  9,'ith tho English ' bankers for one last  tesue of $25,000,000 of bonds at 20 cents  on the dollar.   That's an awful squeeze,  bnt <.h��������������� ���������������rwi>f ������_;ar ''O ������"V nfchnr toi'ms:  but thoy insist tnat I import some modern rifles and cannon and get up a genuine revolution and take possession' of  the government and keep it. Then we  . will reorganize the debt and make a  nice thing out of it, even if England  does seize the country, for she won't  allow the bonds to be repudiated. Now,  here is where you come in."  "I was wondering where I came in,",  said L  "Well, the thing must be kept secret, but I want you to act as purchas-"  ing agent. You are to buy arms and  ammunition aud enlist about 100 sturdy  fellows who understand military matters, bring them to Cordova, and when  the revolution is over you.will be a  major general and secretary of the treasury.   It's .-worth a million at least."  When? It made my head swim, and  I told Bosenko that I must have time  to think it over. Well, after a few  days' consultation I agreed to go into  tho scheme, though I didn't,like it. He  talked of a revolution as coolly as if it  were a Sunday" school Jricuic, but I  couldn't help thinking of Lopez and  Walker. ������������������ However, I was getting desperate and resolved to try it. The details were soon arranged, and I was to  act on cable advices and letters in  cipL-er.    This cipher was a  verv simple  YOU  B  Men hate  health.

The "a" meant "z," "e"  meant "w," etc.,,with changes under  certain conditions.! I told" him it was  too easily deciphered aud we would ;ba  discovered, but he laughed and said  that no one in San Castaragua would  take that much trouble to prevent an  earthquake. '  One of the principal errands was to  arrange with tho San Castaraguan minister at Washington for the recognition  of the new government, by the United  States. This tool: some trouble, but he  said it was all arranged, and the minister at Washington was to sexvl sue  word and I was to cable to him.  "If England makes any trouble," he  said, "we rely on the Monroe doctrine."  "What's that?", I askod.  "Don't you  know what  tho Monroe  doctrino is?" said he in surprise.  "No, I don't," said I, rather nettled.  "I am not well posted in religious matters, butT suppose they cut a great deal  of ice with you."  He looked at mo as if he thought I  was guying him and said:  "Don't you know, that President  Monroe was tho man who led your  armies in the Revolution -against England and was president of tho United  States as Jong as he lived afterward?"  "No, I don't," said I testily. "You're  off. George Washington waa the first  president, 'first iu war, first.in peace,  first in*the hearts of his countrymen.' "  "Hold on; maybe you're right, but  anyway there was a man named Monroe  in this country who got up a doctrine  that rules all South America. I don't exactly know what it is, and the only man  who really did understand it is dead,  but the idea is that when'any South  American country gets into trouble with  any European country tho United States  will,do all the fighting for us. It's' a'  grand idea, too, and makes us feel more  comfortable when we do things contrary  to the European fashion. They're all  afraid of you."        ���������> ,;  "Well,.I am glad of that," said I,  ". though this is the first time I ever  heard of it. .But won't tho United  States interfere in your revolution?'' \  "Oh, no;" it never interferes in our  domestic affairs. That's contrary to the  doctrine. We can do what we'like. It's  only when England interferes that you  folks make a. howl. Why, you don't  even take care.of your own peoplo down  there. If one of your countrymen gets  into trouble, it often takes years'to fix  it up through* "diplomacy. Once Cuzco  arrested one of your people, and it took  seven -years of- diplomatic correspondence to settle it." Then it was found he  had been dead four 'y ears. Another time  Moreno locked one of your people up,,  and it took six years to arrange for his  release, but when they oamo-to look for  him it was found that he was one of  Moreno's major generals and had been  secretary of state three times, during  which he carried on the correspondence  about his. own release, without even  knowing it. They are rather careless of  jetails down there."  "Yes, I see," said I, "entirely too  careless. I guess I won't go into the  scheme, for seven years' imprisonment  wouldn't suit my constitution."  "Pshaw!" said he. "There's no danger. If you do get arrested, all you have  to do is to say you are an Englishman,  and thoy'11 let you go quick onough. "  "Oh, they will, will thoy?" said I.  "Well, why is that? Have the English  got a Monroe doctrine too?"  "No, but they have warships, which  is much better.    If an Englishman gets  arrested anywhere, all he does is to send  word to the captain   of  any war vessel  that is in port.  The captain sends word  to,the  authorities  demanding  the  release of the captive and a large indemnity.    If they do not give in. the town is  bombarded, and there you are. In fact,  this plan has led to abuses."  "Indeed," said I.    "How?"  "Well,   you  see,  an   English   vessel  comes into a South American port.  All  its officers are out of money, and   there  is no chance for  a  good   time.    One of  them goes ashore, kicks up  a  row and  perhaps insults some one or knocks him  down.    He is arrested.    The captain demands his release.  The authorities consider.    The second day an indemnity is  also demanded.   The third day it is increased, and four hours' notice given of  a bombardment.    Then   the prisoner is  released and goes aboard with a bag of  gold, and the officers  make  merry.    I*.  has often happened in   San Castaragua,  but usualiy*the  city officials get a person tage of tho rake off.  Indeed it has'got  to be a flourishing  industry in Cordova,  since revolutions suspended.  There -is- a  regular   scale  of   prices, the  syndicate  getting 40  per cent, tho government 20  and tho English captiye   40.

Wise people have long been aware  that "care killed a cat," bnt it .has been  left to the X rays to explain how and  . why. Dr. Fritz. Lange of Munich has  turned his fluorescent screen upon the  stdmach of a happy and contented cat  ��������� and has seen the process of digestion  going ou as, it should in all well regulated stomachs. Then he has introduced  care and irritation into the feline mind  by placing a live mouse just beyond  reach and. has seen digestion stopped  thereby.  Tho Society For the Prevention of  Cruelty to Animals may cry out on behalf of the cat. or the mouse, or both,  but the lesson against worrying is as  complete as any .Christian Scientist  could desire. Worrying stops digestion,  causes dyspepsia, retards all tho normal physical processes and demoralizes  both body and mind.

There -was a crowded- house, and   the  mixed assemblage gave'good opportunity  ' ���������' for" the study'of types.' But among the  ' hundreds'were just two of whom 1 want  to tell you.  .Minis was first violin in the Frivolity  orchestra.   There was a tradition  to tho>  effect    that   his   name^ had    once- been/  ^ _Mimes,  but  because some one had. said  '���������a that- he was "mimsey looking" tlie nauie  v"'had forthwith been contracted, as ^ibove.  "'Mints was 200 years old.   Perhaps you  think I do not mean this, but let us sec.  \   Minis was a ' street" boy.   The urchin's  --> earliest recollections were of the crowded'thoroughfares  about   Drury   lano,   of  his'terror of-the   big < policeman  and  of  ' ' cold and hunger.   His father^was a thief  ���������his mother as bad.   His father's father  died upon the gallows, white his maternal  grandfather had taken up his permanent  residence  at   a   convict   prison.    I* have  ,' , not troubled to trace his genealogical tree  - further,-but'tnake no doubt,that 1 should  find that for. 200 years tlie heredity and  ., environment had been such as to conceit-  ' irate, and culminate in poor little Minis  every    wicked < and   'wretched    trait    to  .which humanity is subject. "  " His face told you all this. It was the  - face of' a' little old man, and it had been  so always. I cannot think that Minis  had ever been a baby, soft and dimpled  and'playful. It is not in nature that a  baby should have grown iuto such an  eingy of manhood.  Mims had not been long in this world  before he had assimilated , perfectly all  the knowledge of good and evil which his  progenitors had been iudustriously accumulating for him through so many generations, and it does not require much  perspicuity to guess in which branch of  this knowledge ho had the greater inheritance.  Now, y_u may think from this that  Minis was pretty bail, but he was not.  because he possessor! one saving uraco.  One day while he was yet'a small lad  .Minis heard a band playing in the street.  1'ossibly he bad hoard music before, but  only with the outer ear. It had never  reached and touched that micro-organism  winch we term the soul.  Mims followed the band a long way.  The band marched fast, and poor Minis'  little feet grew very tired, until they  would carry him no farther. Then he  sat down upon the curb and cried.  But he arose from the curb with the  seeds of ambition firmly implanted within him.    He would be a musician.  Henceforth Mims sold papers and  blacked boots more industriously than  ever and hoarded his pennies with all the  greed of a miser. When he finally counter! them and found there were enough to  buy a fife, it was the consummation of  the first step in his career. From that  on he ascended by regular stages, the  first of which was banging about an  ISast Idnd concert ball and cultivating  the acquaintance, of the .musicians ''there,  and the last of Which was first" violin at  the frivolity.  When the overture was over and the  curtain lifled. Mims leaned back in his  chair, closed his eyes and kept only wide  'awake enough to know when any musical  accompaniment was needed. That part  of the show did not interest him. No  matter how many pretty girls were waving their shapely feet above the footlights. Minis thought it very foolish that  the audience should prefer that to the  numbers of the orchestra.  But he was not permitted to rest long  in peace. There was a roar from the  audience, half of applause and half of  derision, and bio opened his eyes to look  around about for the cause.  On the stage was the usual thing���������a  young singer giving a serio comic song,  with interludes of dance steps and graceful posturing. A new singer he saw at  once. And, to catch the audience, she  was singing to and making eyes at some  one in the orchestra, and that some one  was Minis. Now, this had never happened before. There were plenty of  comely fellows in the orchestra. The  young man who played the bass viol was  of a Byrohic cast of features, and the  cornet player was as round and rosy as a  big red apple, and these were the men at  whom the sylphs of the stage usually  made pretty mouths. That she should  have selected him, with his old weazened  face, to draw all eyes toward made him  to him. Minis flushed, and the people  howled at his discomfiture, while the  girl, quick to see she had made a hit by  chance, began to sing a littlo love song.  This she accompanied with all manner of  serio comic by play, with Minis still as  its object.  As he could do nothing but sit quietly  and hear it tie began to study the singer.  And this is what he"saw:  A young girl not beyond her teens.  He was quite sure of thai, in spite of the  "make up" of the stage, which the footlights and her nearness to them and to  him brought out so hideously. A tgirl  with a fresh, brirrht face, yet unmarred  by the hard life of flie theater.    A prerf-  face, with laughing blue eyes and golden  hair, which Mims could see was net a  wig.  As he studied her carefully, from the  crown of paste diamonds that glittered  in her hair down to the silver lace that  fringed the high tops of, her dainty  boots, tbe first violin grew less angry  with the'girl for singing her little love  song lo him, and when she left tho stage  he "gave her a hand",with as hearty  good will as any man in the theater,  which was-a strange thing'for an orchestra player to do.  Tho fame oi' ".Nonie," the new singer  at the Frivolity, ran quickly through the  town, and the theater was crowded  nightly. And every, night she sang, at  Mims, until it came to be the feature of  her performance and looked Lor by the  regular habitues as the piece de rosist-������  ance of the entertainment.     ���������  ,  "Do you see old Minis?" said one. "Upon my word, he. blushes like a sschooiboy  when-Nonie comes at him. Must be a  new sensation to the old chap lo have a  girl look at him twice. Once is enough to  scare niost'of 'em into a tit."  "Well, I would be willing to wear his  face for a night to get as many smiles as  he/loes. But hero goes for a try lor'one.  at least." r *<>  r- With that the young fellow turned to a  flower seller and selected a bunch of the  liner roses. At the end of Nome's ac: he  utood well up and threw them straiy,',! at  her feet. Nouie bowed, picked them up  and courtesiod again, laughing ami show  ing skirts away and at last wrapped her.  tortured and burned, but living and conscious, in his own garment.  Nonie was not so severely injured but  that she could appear at the Frivolity  again in a few weeks, and when her return was announced the house was  crowded. '  Nonie did not attempt to sing to any  one but Minis that night, but on this occasion he was not the first violin. He  had spent his leisure during her retirement in composing a new accompaniment  to her dance and had asked and obtained  permission to lead the orchestra on this  eventful night for its performance.���������Buffalo News.  ��������� "l  THE AMERICA'S CUP.

And  then  the contrast between  the face  of  this   old   young   gamin   and   the   rosy  cheeks and sparkling eyes of the girl lent  a   picturesque  effectiveness  to  the  scene  that   nothing  else  could.     So the   people  borran to hiss and howl and hoot to show  their disapproval,  while cries of "Minis!  Mims!  The first   violin.'" gave ridded  iii-  t'erprof.'iiion to their meaning.

In the confusion she carelessly came  too near the footlights and. jarring the  slight gauze covering from one of them,  swept hor flimsy skirts above it.

The 39 sailors on the def on der will  get $35 a month apiece. For a season of  five month3they will draw.$6,825 in pay.  Their food will cost $10 a month apiece.  Capt. Barr will receive $4,000 for the  season. The matter of salaries and food  alone will cost- over $12,000.  No one can accurately predict how  much it will cost to sail a yacht like the  Columbia for a season���������not even the  owners.
