At Frenchman's bay. on tho border of

Honed tho man at whose house I was stay
ing. Thai house was indeed the best in
j floe district, and, as people Bay in tho coun

) man. Having exhausted the chapter rela
tf tivo to the value and price of land, I asked
him whether ho had ever been to Philadel
phia. He replied that he had not yet dona
bo. Ho was a man of about 45 years of
ago. I scarcely dared to ask him whether
be knew Gen. Washington. "I have never
seen him," he Raid. "If yon should go to
Philadelphia," I went on, "you would bo
pleased to see the great man?" "2so doubt
I shall, but," he added with beaming eyes,
"I should very much like to see Mr. Ring
ham, the man who they say is so rich."
Throughout the States I met with simi
lar love for money, and often as coarsely
expressed. This country is too soon ac
quainted with luxuries. Tho latter are,
indeed, shocking when men can hardly
provide themselves with the necessaries of
life. I recollect having seen in the drawing

him, "Please do not attempt to play on it,

The form of administration in the repub
lic is the same as that of tho empire
Nothing has been altered in its organiza
tion; very little change has been made in
its personnel. Our functionaries are cer
uiinly too namesons; they aro too poorly
paid; they are inclined to routine; they do
not always show the public that kindness
and politeness which they should look
upon as a duty. But thoir Hj'stem is
strongly established; their powers and du
ties are clearly defined; their aptitude i9
remarkable; their probity is beyond all
praise. They possess in tho highest degrco
the feeling of professional honor. This
country, whoo fault is a wish always to
mnovate, lacks traditions in government,
but has excellent ones in its administra
tion. The latter corrects the former. This
itrong organization of tho public service
If snanies it to go witnout too great damage
i Inrougn tno greatest crises. inis may
nave boon observed at the periods of revo
lution. At buch times, whon everything
is in commotion, tho course of public busi
ness does not suffer even a momentary in
terruption. The administration moves on
alone in the most perilous crisis; when a
new government is in power, it is ready to
servo that as it served tho fallen one, and
to preserve newcomers as much as possi
ble from the inconveniences of inexperi
ences. Tho republic is therefore very well
served by its civil officers, as the empire
was before it. Jules Simon in Forum.
Canadian coin is of no small worry in
metropolitan life. Intrinsically it is worth
more than our own, but practically it is
( commercially tabooed and is always
source of irritation and sometimes personal
loss, except to those who deal in it as a
commodity. Nearly every time you get
change a ten cent or twenty-five cent Cnna
dlan coin will slip in usually the former
which can scarcely be detected from our
dime. Then when you are in a hurrying
lino at an elevated station tho ticket agent
will push that com back to you and you
must fumble around for more money. If
you should board a street air and happen
to have no other change short of a five dol
ar bill you will be compelled to get off and
jet change, for tho conductor will neither
vecept your Canadian piece nor change
anything bigger than a two dollar bill.
You may not have noticed up to that
vime that you had the doubtful coin. You
take an inward oath that you will never
accept another, and during the next hour
vill probably bo caught again. Some
tradesmen will take tho coin at par, others
lit a discount. The result is it is shifted
on somebody else and gets passed around
in some way perhaps to you once more.
There are business mon who let this coin
accumulate and finally sell it to a broker,
who in turn makes a good margin on it by
dnpping it at a premium back to its own
jountry. New York Cor. Pittsburg Dis

It has. been pro ed that the mM violent
heat of our glaw hoiifce furnaces will not
cause gold to volatilize, or go off in vapor,
though silver and many other metals are

ounce of gold was kept for a month iu the
hottest part of a glass house furnace, and
did not lose weight. However, a still more
violent, heat will volatilizo it; by submit

Some years ago, outsido of what the wife
brought to her husband as a dower, and
the gifts she received as keepsakes from
hor friends, thoro was nono of what we
understand now by the now comprehensive
term "wedding presents." For some time,
though, the custom has been verging upon
tho absurd, and the funny paragrapher has
pointed his wit with the father's blank
check, tho presents hired for the oocasion,
the tributes from employes, and has rev
eled in the snobbish ostentation of the dis
play of gifts, set apart in an upper room,
all properly tagged, with a policeman or a
private detecthe in full evening drtss to
watch both the gifts and the guests. How
much tnis public display of wedding pres
ents has had to do with the increase in
their number and cost would be well worth
It is safe to say that there are many peo
ple eager to shine in society, and not quite
sure of their position, who would willingly
pay n wedding present as the price of hav
ing their gift laid alongside of the one gent
by a more prominent person. Thus would
they be assured to gain the coveted honor
of having their ptebeiun names mentioned
among the alleged patriciaus. Under the
prevailing oustom of wedding present dis
plays no one who wishes to gain or pre
serve the reputation of being in the social
swim can afford to send a moan or a icor
present. This factor is carefully taken
into account by those making out their
lists of invited giieste. This many a yonng
man lias found out to his cost. Di Vernon

The Child at the Table.
So long as custom and necessity render
it advisable to have a child at the same
table with hi3 parents these should fix.
upon a plan of action and adhere to It.
Desiring to have their caildren looked upon
as comforts and not as spoil sports, they
should enforce strict obedience, exact quiet
at table and inculcate stringently the once
honored maxim of laf yeare fallen sadly
into disnse and disrepute that little boys
and girL? should be seen and not heard.
Remembering how much easier it is to
cheek a habit at the outset than to break
it off after it Is fully formed, the father and
mother should watch their children's table
manner and repress at onco the careless
ness and unpleasant tricks which seem,
possibly through original ain. to come nat
urally to most little folk. The correct
handling of poon, fork and knife should
be taught as soon as they are permitted to
Use these implement?, and slovenliness
should be rebuked and held up as a dis

consideration, establish an outline of diet
for the youngsters and allow no divergence

A PROBLEM THAT HOTEL KEEPERS
HAVE NOT YET SOLVED.
2f en Who Slake Xre T7e of Some of the
Conveniences, bat Who Xerer Register
and "cYer Alc for Their Bill Expert
Opinion on the Subject.
It has long been an unsolved problem
among hotel keepers how to avoid being
imposed upon by a very large class of per
sons who habitually make use of various
conveniences of hotels without In any way
compensating the proprietors. It is, for in
stance, a dally occurrence for those who
are not guests to xnafco use of tho parlors
of hotels for places of meeting, to use the
toilet rooms, to lounge about the smoking
rooms, to use the hotel stationery, and in
other ways to appropriate to their own
use, without payment, facilities which aro
intended for tho accommodation of hotel
guests. The subjee? has been much talked
about among hotel proprietors, and many
expedients have been either proposed or
adopted as a remedy for this growing evil.
In a number of well known hotels in New
York the evil has grown to enormous pro
portions. As far as the toilet rooms are
; concerned, it was at one time proposed to
j adopt a scheme of charge for admission,
I and one inventive genius even went so far
as to propose a machine on the principle of
' "Put a nickel in the slot."
CHECKINO THE EVIL.
It is, horrever, true that, after much
deliberation and consultation, and com
paring notes and relating experiences,
hotel proprietors have generally come to
the conclusion that these evils must iu
some measure be borne, although they
may be prevented in a degree by various
expedients. It is, therefore, now the cus
tom in the larger hotels to post various no
tices about the public places indicating that
they are reserved for gueets of tho house.
Such notices are posted in the toilet room
and in the smoking room, and over tho
chairs in the billiard rooms, and even the
seats that are placed near the hotel offices
for the accommodation of the bell boys
awaiting tha summon of the hotel clerk
to answer the call of guests.
It is alhO an essential part of the equip
ment of all hotels to have one or more per
sons constantly on the lookout to warn off
these unprofitable visitors. Such of thte
unwelcome guests as are obviously un
clean or "crooked" aro unceremoniously
bounced. There is, however, a very large
class of well dressed and gentlemanly ap
pearing persons who do not scruple to thus
impose on hotel proprietors day after day.
With such persons a gentler, but quite as
effective, method of warning off is adopted.
Sometimes tho gentleman will receive a
delicate intimation by word of mouth that
his presence is not desired. Sometimes he
will be asked if he has any particular busi
ness in the house. It may be that a note
will be slipped Into his hand suggesting
that he has been accommodated for a sutli
Speaking on this subject Mr. E. L. Mer
rifield, president of the Hotel Keeper' a-,
sociation, recently said: "To a certain ex
tent hotel keepers recognize that their
houses are public. They aro aware that
from many reasons persons who do not
patronize their hotels may find occasion to
use these facilities. They know, for in
stance, that their own guests during their
stay in the city may find occasion to visit
other hotels and use their conveniences.
They are quite willing to permit a fair
share of their own conveniences to be usel
by the guests of other hotels, but they
have found it absolutely necessary to pro
tect themselves by constant watching and
by the prompt ejection of habitual offend
ers. A STORK TIED TO IT.
"It is surprising how some men will per
sist in little mean impostures of this kind.
There was a nice little well dressed old
gentleman who somo time ago, although
not a guest at the Continental hotel, wan
in the constant habit of spending a portion
of the morning in tho sitting room. Ho
would seat himself in the most comfort
able chair and watch for any morning pa
per which might be left momentarily un
guarded by n guest. This thing went on
so long that it got to be a matter of merri
ment among tho bell boys ami waiters to
watch the old gentleman a he dally
pounced upon his 'free reading ' One
morning one of the bell boys laid a trap
for the old gentleman, and baited it with a
newspaper to which a string was invisibly
attached, and when tho old gentleman
btooped down to pick up the paper it was
mysteriously whisked away. He saw at
once that he had been watched, and he im
mediately picked up his hat and left the
hotel, mid we have never teen him since.
"An imposition of a more serious kind is
the use of the toilet rooms by strangcra.
The more commodious and comfortable
they are, the greater seems to be the ruh
of unauthorized strangers to use them In
our own hotel this i3 a source of iuconve
ence to our guests, and notwithstanding
our notices, and tho fact that we station a
servant in the toilet room to warn off un
authorized persona, the evil continues,
lint, so far as I have known, no adequate
remedy has yet been proposed by the most
experienced hof 1 proprietor Of coarse it
-would be impracticable to rharga a fee of
admission to the toilet room, Lxreaase it
would be a petty annoyance to the guet.
Some hotel proprietors look upon these
public conveniences in the light of adver
tisements. They say it brings people to
th hotel, that, although they may not be
boarders they patronixe the bar or the
cafe or the billiard room, and that in one
way or another tivo establishment will re
Mr Charles hprague, chairman of the
executive committee of the Hotel Keepers'
sMctaUoE, said. "Of courae we are im
posed upon It seems to be a well fcettlrd
opinion, however, among hotel proprietors
that the most that can bo dose Is to heck
the evil, and that there U no powrtbihty of
preventing it altogether." New York Sua.
