paid the specified price for her triumph,

defeated goddesses took revenge for the

the Greeks went whooping about the gates
of Troy the prince probably felt that it

Harvard university gymnasium, does.
Three years ago the doctor offered cash

summer of 1890, the most perfect sym

one entirely different from that in which
Paris came to grief. There waa no chanco

closed and the period of probationary ex

the list of measurements

The female winner under these exacting
conditions was Miss Margaret Blanche
Best, of Meadvillc, Pa. She is the daugh
ter of Dr. David Best, a graduate of La
Salle seminary, at Auburndale, Mass., and
follows the calling of a teacher. She is 25
years old, and has been one of Dr. Sargent's
pupils for twelve months. The doctor said
"Miss Best is 5 feet 5 inches in height.
My tables show thnt 82' per cent, of all
women are shorter than she is, and 17
per cent, are taller. Her weight is 130

of all women weigh less, and 17) per cent,

Work of the Vegetarians.
The recent conclaves of vegetarians in
America and England have been of advan
tage even to the scoffers. The foes of
animal food have at least demonstrated
that such things as beans nnd peas and
cauliflower may bo so artistically dressed
as to cause even the gourmet to regard
them as ends in themselves, and not merely
as the subsidiary adjuncts of a chop or
steak. A London paper, commenting on
the vegetarian, says "that tho majority of
Englishmen eat more meat than is good
for them a habit which is due not so much
to the perversity of their dispositions as to
the incompetence of their cooks." It is a
little queer, by the way, that these British
cooks, who aro denounced at home for in
competency, find easy employment and big
salaries in tho kitchens of wealthy Ameri
cans who think nothing worth their use
unless it is imported.
To Marry a Prince.
Another American young woman is to
marry a prince. The announcement is
made at Dresden that Miss Anna Hallings
worth Price is engaged to wed Prince Fred

the Second Prussian Hussar regiment.
The Prince of Ardeck was born at Offen-bach-on-the-Main
in lS.Bf and is the son of
Prince William of Hesse.
The Widow of President Tolk.
At her home near Nashville, Tenn., tho
widow of President James K. Polk recent

state legislature with all the dignity and
grace that characterized her when mistress
of the White House.

her mother, who is SO years of age. She

It is an interesting sight to see the
hundreds of covered tobacco wagons
come to market Large ware hauses are
ready to offer every inducement to farm
ers to sell their load. Driveways lead
to the great floors where the load is as
sorted in piles according to grade, hav
ing been weighed first while on the
truck. Each pile is tagged with the
name, of the owner and the weight,
with a place for the buyers name and
price. Many farmers remain over night,
for they arrive at all hours of the day
and night. Free stables and other ordi
nary comforts are provided.
There are ten ware houses in Danville,
N. C. They are divided into two series
of five each, and public sales are con
ducted in two at the same time. Under
the direction of the Tobacco Exchange
the order of sales is arranged. Placards
are posted at different poiuts, "First sale
at Neal's," "Second sale at Acree's," and
so on, each warehouse taking its assigned
turn until all five have sold out first to
day, the last to-morrow. Each ware
house has its own auctioneer, clerks,
and most of the firms buying having
two sets of buyers to attend on the two

Compressed Air Torpedo.
Still another torpedo, this one the in
vention of an Austrian count, Buona
corsi by name, has made its appearance
in the European naval and military
world. According to official and private
reports of the trials of this instrument
they were eminently successful, givinj.
results superior even to those obtained
from the Whitehead. The motive power
is compressed air, acting directly from a
reservoir upon tho propeller without an
assistance or intervention from machin
ery. The propulsion is effected by twin
screws working inversely and giving a
velocity greater and more continuous, it
is contended, than any obtained in other
torpedoes. One remarkable feature of
this invention is the faculty of auto
matic guidance, which enables it to
avoid protective nets and shields, and to
dive any distance before rising to give
its blow. Exchange.
