New Use For Spring Chickens.
Should the little daughter of Mr. Ca-
lissi ever recover she owes her life to an
Italian violinist in the city. Suffering
as she is with brain fever and the doc
tors giving tip all hope of her recovery,
this morning she spoke the first word
and ate the first morsel she has for sev
eral days. A friend of Mr. Calissi, an
Italian, visited the sick child and re
marked had he known her condition a
day or two ago ho could certainly have
saved her. However, he was willing to
try it, and going out he brought in a
number of spring chickens. Taking a
live chicken he split open its back with a
knife, opened it wide and placed the 1a
side of the chicken, entrails, blood and
all, over the child's head. As soon as
the chicken began to get cold he would
open another and place it on in the same
About the time the second chicken be
gan to cool the child spoke, and after
ward asked for something to eat. So
far 22 chickens have been used, and the
child is doing splendidly. What effect
the warmth of the chicken and vitals
had upon the child's head the writer can
not tell, but should the child fully re
cover the Italian professor wants the
credit. He says ho saved his son's life in
the same manner when it was necessary
to use 48 spring chickens. He prefers
rabbits when he can get them in his
treatment. Paducah News.
Mrs. Stanford's Duty.
Tho end has come, and to Mrs. Stan
ford falls the melancholy duty of carry
ing out a great educational scheme such
as tho world as never seen. That this
scheme should originate in California
seems in keeping with a state which is
itself an empire, self feeding in almost
every particular, as great in beauty and
wonders as in size and natural products.
Fortunately for the university, Mrs.
Stanford was essentially her husband's
helpmeet. She shared his sorrows no
less than his joys. She was a coun
selor and friend to whom he confided
all his enterprises. Rising above per
sonal loss therefore, Mrs. Stanford can
take her place at the helm and steer a
magnificent idea into the safe harbor
of accomplished fact. Hers is a glorious
task, in the doing of which there will be
infinite comfort. Husband and son have
only gone before, and spiritual lielp will
come to her who humbly bears her cross
and dedicates her life to the advance
ment of humanity. Kate Field's "Wash

Bed Apples Won th Bace.
Two large apple trees stand side by
side in an orchard not far from Sydney.
On one hung fruit which looked like
balLa of gold in the sunlight. The ap
ples on the neighboring tree were a
bright red. One day the owner of the
orchard sent his men to pick the fruit.
It was to be sent to the World's fair,
and he followed them out among the
trees to see that tho work was properly
done. When at last the apples were
packed in the barrels, the fruitgrower
decided that those two barrels should
separate in the orchard and not meet
again until on the exhibition table in the
Horticultural building at the fair. The
red apples were to go east, and the yel
low apples were to go west.
xno golden rruit was loaded into a
steamer and started toward tho Suez
canal, while the red fruit was started
the same day in a vessel across the Pa
cific ocean. The fruit grower marked
"No delay. Perishable goods," con
spicuously on each barrel. He wanted
to ascertain which was the quickest
route to the World's fair. The barrel
of yellow apples passed through tho
canal, through the Mediterranean sea,
up tne .ngnsn cnannei, and nnaiiy
reached London. Here it was taken
from the boat and sent by railroad to
Liverpool. Then the barrel of New
South Wales fruit was loaded into an
ocean racer and started on its way
across the Atlantic to New York, whence
it came to Chicago by railroad. It was
just 66 days to an hour when Thomas
Pugh, the assistant general superin
tendent of the New South Wales ex
hibit, received it.
In the meantime the red apples had
crossed the Pacific ocean to San Fran
cisco in 20 days. Then they were sent
by freight to Chicago. After numerous
delays along tho way tho apples arrived.
They had been 52 days on tho way and
had been admired by Worlds fair visit
ors for almost two weeks before the
golden apples which grew on the tree
beside them in Australia were placed on
china plates and set on the table beside
them in the New South Wales fruit dis

Fortifications For an English Port.
The British war department has made
arrangements for having the works in
connection with the fortifications at
Chatham considerably advanced during
the current year. The chain of forts
which for some years past have been
under construction in the vicinity of
Medway are intended for the defense of
the dockyard and naval arsenal and tho
military depots at Chatham and also of
the approaches to London. The expend
iture has already reached a total of
many thousands of pounds, and it is es
timated that a further outlav of between
$100,000 and $150,000 will be necessary
before tho works are complete. Of this
sum it is expected that $70,000 will be
expended during the coming year $4o,-
000 on the eastern defenses and $25,000
on Darland fort. In both of .these cages
there has been a large increase m tho
amount of tho original estimates.
It was anticipated that the works in
connection with the eastern defenses
would cost 480,000, but o
substitution of civil for
that sum has been raised to
The original estimate for the construe
tion of Darland fort $80,000 was also
found insufficient, but up to the present
time the actual expenditure on this par

Champion of the British Monarch.
Queen Victoria has lost her champion.
He died only the other day, but his son
succeeds to the office. It is his duty to
stand ready at all times to defend against
all comers tho right of the sovereign to
her crown. But he only appears in pub
lic, personally or by duty, on coronation
day, when, unless the sovereign dispenses
with the ceremony, he must declare
her formally crowned, throw down the
gauntlet anddefy her enemies. If the
champion fails in this duty, he forfeits his
estate, given tho family by William the
Conquerer, and sinks into middle class
obscurity, for the queen's champion is
not a nobleman. Yeoman and squire was
Robert de Marmyon when William the
Conquerer made him his champion and
gave lm tne manor or Scrivelsby., and
his descendant, who has just surrendered
the office by death, was a simple justice
of the peace. Queen Victoria did not
call upon her champion at her corona
tion, nor did William rv. George rV was
the last king at whose coronation the
ceremony was observed, but the simple

cleanliness saves more lives than all of

our bodies as well as our surroundings.
Bad matter is continually exuding from
tho pores of tho skin, and if this is not

Next to tho first pronounced hoopsMrt
on Broadway the first straw hat of the
season creates tho largest attention.
When a man has confidenco enough in
the weather to start out for a two days'
trip with a straw hat, he is planning a
great responsibility upon tho weather
bureau, which stands for our modern
providenci. I saw such a man at tho
Fifth Avenue hotel one day, and his was
the first straw hat of the season. To say
that he attracted much attention and
was tho subject of a great many pleas
antries is putting it very mildly. Thero
r.ro somo people, however, who are either
indifferent to criticism or too obtuse to
observe it, who begin things without con
sulting other people. Somebody has to
begin, you Imow, but the largo maaonty
of mankind lack tho nerve of woman
kind and dread to bo conspicuous in any
particular as to dress.
Jlen are awful cowards when it comes
to dress. They wait for those of better
nerve and then follow like a flock of
sheep. Scarcely a man of all those who
smiled and sneered and laughed at the
man with tho first straw hat but will bo
wearing a straw hat himself this sum
mer. Yet if all men were like these no
such thing as the comfortable straw
would havo ever been worn, becanso no
man would have had tho courage to be
gin it. Thero is a certain humor in tho
incongruity of things, it is true, and if a
man appear on Broadway m straw hat
and ulster he is likely to be a sensation
at tliis season of tho year. A motith
or two later and the man with the over
coat and straw may be seen-at any sum
mer resort. New York Herald.

It is only in tho far west probably
that tho old race of spitters keep up the
best practice. In tho cities, at any rate,
you seldom see men who tilt back in
their chairs, put their heels on the dinner
table and take tho firo irons at 40 paces.
Civilization is progressing when you
must not talk about spittoons, but de
maud that utensil under the name of
"cuspidor." Still tho most prominent
notico in the Woman's building is, "Do
not spit on tho floor." A man stood be
side me as I read this. Ho wore a slouch
hat, to which Buffalo Bill's would be
siinply a fashionable bonnet in size,
trickles of rich tobacco juice wattled his
mouth lito a Darnels, ms uoots were
models for a coffin maker.
Noticing, I dare sa-, a twinkle in the
corner of my eye, ho said slowly and
with that grim, smileles3 humor befit
ting a slabsided hero from Indiana way,
"Say, now, do they mean that wo mout
take a shot at them pictures?"' There is
certainly a suspicion of local option sug
gested in that sentence. Better to have
gone on the principlo of some other no
tices which, without waste of printers'
ink (and composition), meet your eye ev
erywhere: "No admittance. Go out!"

American friends of Russian freedom
aro not silenced by tho promulgation of
the treaty with tho czar. They protest
as earnestly as before against a compact
whose political extradition is all on one
side. Wo have no political crimes ex-
cent at rare intervals. Russian laws turn
hundreds of petty words and actions in
to crimes. From the punishment the
only escapo is on forged passports, and
the treaty makes that forgery an extra
ditable offense. Eennan asserts that this
provision alone will cover every political
offense known to the severe Russian law.

The hair was burned from his head and

Five hours later he had been put in a

tho intention to havo his body encased

wa3 necessary to cross a swollen stream,
and in this act the bed of tho wagon was
partially submerged and tho body near

the effect of restoring animation to tho
apparently lifeless body. In consultation
with physicians Mrs. Meado was after

submerged his body, which was a rare

The fair has developed some curious
cranks. Ono of tho most conspicuous ia
the gentleman who wants to write Ins
name in every register ho come3 across.
Ho is generally enthusiastic o'ver his own
state, and makes for tho local building
as soon as ho arrives on therrrounds
Onco thero he first locates tho registbV,'
anti witn a mignty sweep or tne arm
scrawls an illegible name across the reg
ister. This dnty performed ho wanders
into tho next state building, finds tho
register thero and signs his name again.
All told thero must be several hundred
registers in use, for not only are they to
bo found in state buildings, but also in
exhibits. Ono man entered tho Minne
sota building tho other day, and as ho
signed his name exclaimed: "I gness I'vo
beaten the record. This is the two hun
dred and fiftieth timo l'vo signed my
name. I guess more people'll know Jabez

ho existed before."
It is amusing to watcli these register
cranks. Ono got in tho California build
