AMERICAN ADMIRATION FOR EUROPE.
A "Writer Aiks "Why It Is Reprehensible
to Kespeet Foreign Opinions.
We hare Iopr deferred to Europe in
many wars, arid our satirists and critics
have .scourged mercilessly what they
branded as our senility. "Is the Hudson
not broadly magnificent enough, O recre
ant American, that jou must prattle of
the Khine? Is the the the Capitol at
Albany or at "Washington so insignificant
that you cannot forget a crumbling Col
iseum or ruined Parthenon? Are not

enough, that the streets of Berlin or Glas
gow must be thrown in our faces? The
Campagna, the Vale of Enna, Olympus,
Hymettus, what are they to tiie prairies of
Illinois and the farther west, to the valley
of Wyoming, to the Rocky mountains?"
So frowns indignant patriotism, speaking
with firm set lips, and so the nightingale
of the boards reproves us for scorning our
own children whom Europe Jao not yet
crowned with laurel.
But may not something be said for
Europe? Although it lo a country no
longer young, is it so hopelessly senile
that its approval is worthless? Because
we are the child of the morning, with a
boundless estate of the future, do we know
everything so much more fully and wisely
that we justly laugh at an older wisdom?
Is it weakness that stirs desire in the heart
of the young painter of i he prairie to see
miracles of Raphael, of Titian, of Correg
gio? Is it servility that draws the Ameri
can sculptor to study'fchc marbles of An
gelo and Phidias? Is'it mistrust of his own
land and its genius tHat sends the architect
to the schools of Pans, the physician to
Germany, the artificer to the countries that

Would not our melodious monitor agree
that it is because other and smaller coun
tries are so sincerely devoted to the main
tenance of lyric art, so versed in it, so edu
cated by taste and long training and ex
perience, that their opinion is the opinion
of knowledge, and therefore that their
praise signifies what the verdict of less ex
perience and training does not signify?

Tho Baldwin Apple.
The Baldwin is a dark red apple of me
dium sine. It grows abundantly through
nut this state and New Jersey. Like the
Newtown pippin it keeps for a long time,
and for that reason it is in great demand
for -winter eating. The Baldwin is the
. pple of the people. It is sold in cheap
grocery stores and restaurants, on railroad
htatious and car, on street stands aifd
ferryboats, at circuses and kindred enter
tainmints, and in tho common, ordinary
boarding house of commerce. It is the
apple which small children buy coated
with glazed sugar and mounted upon a
It is the forbidden fruit which country
school children munch surreptitiously
during lesson hours, and for which they
get whippings. On the street it sells for
one or two cents. In restaurants it is
served at the rate of two for a quarter.
Two bad features of the Baldwin are the
stickiness of its skin and its tendency to
worms. If it can be kept free from the
latter it will, a above stated, remain good
for many months. New York Evening

Chinese Bill of fare.
One night last week a Chinamen minus
his pigtail sat in the restaurant of the joss
bouse and smoked a cigarette. He inhaled
the smoke of the cigarette and then blew it
out in a thin cloud, just as though to the
manner born. It was then nearly midnight,
and the restaurant presanted a curious
scene. Three distinct races were represent
ed at the tabtes. At one Kit two negro
women, with striped red shawls thrown
over their shoulders and enormous straw
hats mounted on their piles of black hair.
Atanotherwere two United Si,ates marines
The big room was dimly lighted by a
number of oil lamps hung in brackets
around the room. Chinese waiters, with
bare feet thrust into wooden sandals, the
ankles remaining exposed, skuilied back
and forth between dining room and kitchen.
Behind a counter at the rear of the dining
room stood thxi moon faced proprietor and
his assistant. Neither seemed to take any
interest in the dinner or waiters. The
floor was bare and the furniture cheap,
unpainted wood. A sickeuing smell of
opium floated down from a den Somewhere

in the minority, and the poor and vicious
of the Bowery and its tributary streets
were representee, by blacfcs and whites
enough to occupy most of the tables.
IX A QUEEB PLACE.
Down in the shadow of tho joss house a
tbinlv cl negro cif about twenty years
was trying to raise a little warmth by a
vigorous exercise of his feet in a fitful jig.
"I say, mister," hesaid as the writer ap
peared in tho doorway; "gimme a nickel to
get somethin to eat, will you? I'm dead
cold an all gone insidei "
"Well, come up stairs and I'll buy some
thing to eat for you."
The negro bounded rrp tho outside steps
and thon stopped suddenly.
"I say, boss," he said hesitatingly, "do
you mind if we goio de. restaurant across
"Is that better?"
"Well, yes," ho said, "an dey trow in de
The negro led' the way to a house on the
opposite side of Mott street, where a red
lantern hung above the entrance. He went
tip one flight of stnirs and opened a door.
A cloud of stale smoke rolled out into the
hall. Inside, the scne at the other res
taurant was rep'eated, only tho room was
larger and the lights brighter. There
were also more tables and persons, and the
proprietor hustled around and saw that
everybody was attended to. .Near the door
was a counter, at which safe the cashier,
and at his elbow was a wooden box full of
American cigarettes. As they passed by
the negro grabbed a cigarette, and turning
around to his companion, said patroniz
inely: "Take one. Dey don't cost nuthin."
It was extremely hot in the room and
the air was stifling. All, including the
half score of white women, some of whom
were young and pretty, were smoking
cigarettes. The smoko moved along
tho browned ceiling in solid waves two
feet thick. The smaller clouds ascending
from individual mouths to join the main
volume curled and twisted in fantastic
shapes. The motley crowd looked like so
many devils, and a sober imagination
could readily accept the scene as that of a
small sized inferno. The waiter certainly
looked like a fiend, with his bare, brown
arms and aukles and a most villainous
countenance. Tho negro led tho way to
the table which commanded a view of the
whole room and at the same time gavo a
glimpse of the kitchen.
MAST THINGS TO EAT.
"Kin I order wot I like?" asked the negro.
The reporter told him to please himself.
"Say, John," said the negro to the wait
er, who had come up and was staring va
cantly over the heads of both, "bring me
some scram'led eggs an some macaroni an
"What you want?" tho waiter asked the
"Oh, give mo some tea," he replied.
"Tea is free," said the negro, but tho
waiter had gone.
Presently ho returned with the orders.
The macaroni was not quite so large as
that made by the Italians. A piece of fat,
browned pork lay in tho center. A dark,
forbidding looking liquid in a small dish'
was intended for sauce.
"Dat's blood," said the negro; "nuthin
but blood; but it's good."
The eggs were swimming in grease. No
bread or butter was provided. At an ad
joining table sat some Chinamen eating
from n curious dish of meat and vegetables.
A rich brown sauce was poured over all,
and some of the vegetables looked like
mushrooms. The Chinamen ate with chop
sticks, but tho negro received a steel knife
andfork. Tea was brought in a Chinese pot,
such as is sold cheaply in all the big stores
now. It was poured into tiny little cups
without handles, half as large as very
small after dinner coffeecups. The tea
was pretty strong, but of good flavor. The
waiter rinsed out each cup with the tea be
fore setting them down. There was no
milk or sugar. The negro was still hungry
when ho had finished his macaroni and
eggs. He ordered some cake and rice
brandy. The former was in the shape of
large Kills of dough. Red Chinese charac
ters were stamped on them. The negro
dug his finger into tho cake and tore off
all the outside.
"Dat's no good," he explained; "dey eats
only de insides."
The "insides" consisted of a lot of pre
serves. The reporter tried some of tho
brandy, which the negro had enjoyed
greatly. It was so fiery it almost choked
lum, and the flavor was not particularly
pleasant. He noticed a dish of vegetables
that looked like Brussels sprouts going to
an adjoining table and asked a Chinaman
what they were.
"Bamboo sprouts," said the Chinaman
in very good English; "they are very fine."
"This restaurant seems to have a varied
bill of fare," suggested tho reporter.
"Yes," said the Chinaman, "but it is
nothing compared to the restaurants of
San Francisco. That is where you find the
fine Chinese resiaurants."
The reporter walked over to the propri
etor, who talked freely and intelhcentlv.
"I have kept a Chinese restaurant,'" he
said, "in San Francisco. San Joe, Sacra
mento and Charleston. San Francisco is
the best place I have been in. I had lots
of nice white ladies and gentlemen for cus
The reporter remained in the restaurant
until half past 1 o'clock. During the time
he was there many newcomers arrived,

seemed inclined to be leisurely. The res

THE ISLE OF SKULLS.
A Woman's lonely Ufe Surrounded by
tho Bones of Her Tribe.
On the lonely wind swept island of San
Nicolas, eighty miles off the coast of Ven
tura county, where, as far back as the
memory of man runs, hundreds of white
skeletons have dotted the valleys and hill
sides, local archaeologists are busy gather
ing the relics of a strange extinct race. The
island is ten miles long and oval in shape, j
being four miles across at the widest part.
Strange utensils pf serpentine, sandstone
and steatite aie found there among the
human bones, and the island and its erst
while inhabitants have a history so curi
ous that it is difficult of comprehension.
In 1835 the padres of Santa Barbara,
learning that there were but sixteen of the
strange Indian race then living there, de
termined to rescue them from the island.
They went over in a sloop and succeeded,
as they thought, in getting all on board.
At the last moment an Indian woman re
turned for her child, and one of the fre
quent storms of the channel islands spring
ing up. the sioop was driven away without
her. The sloop went on the rocks of Point
Conception and all on board were lost.
Sixteen years later Captain George Nid
ever and two men went ft om the coast on
a sloop to hunt otter ofi" San Nicolas. On
landing they were, like Crusoe, astonished
to discover human footprints in the sand.
They saw no one, however, and a storm
compelled them to put to sea.
It was two years thereafter that the ad
venturous captain, revolving in his mind
the sight of he footprints in the uncanny
island, determined to go and discover and
bring over the lonely woman of whom he
had vaguely heard, ilen accompanied
him, and at length they saw on the surf
beaten shore a woman with long tawny
hair dressed in a queer garb of colored
birdskins, and scraping with a bone knife
the blubber from a seal.
They surrounded and approached her
stealthily, and although suddenly con
fronted she did not appear in the least
afraid, but smiled, and then falling on her
knees prayed to the sun. The wild woman
offered no objection when by signs she was
made to understand that she was to go
with them in the boat.
They reached Santa Barbara across tho
rough sea, and the first thing the Indian
woman saw was Dr. S. L. Shaw, now
eighty years old, and yet living there, rid
ing a horse. She had never seen nor heard
of any object like it, and thought the man
and horse were one, and she knelt on the
shore and offered her devotions to it. Two
weeks afterward the last inhabitant of rock
ribbed, tempest tosed San Nicolas died
from eating food to which she was unac
customed, furnished by her rescuers, and
the curtain fell on her race forever.
Wild dogs had eaten her child. Her
dress of red and blue feathers, a wonderful
creation of barbaric hands, was sent to the
pope of Rome. Relic hunters have gath
ered mortals, pestles, ollas, toy steatite
canoes and other curious things thero for
some years past, and shipped them to vari
ous eastern and European universities.
Skeletons and parts of skeletons have also
been collected in large numbers, but today
the bones of thousands of Indians are scat
tered about thero. Some lie face down,
indicating that they have fallen in battle.
There are so many human relics there
that San Nicolas is known as the "Isle of
"Tho lonely island, whoso highest part
is but 1,010 feet above the sea," said a resi
dent of Ventura, "is noted for the high
artistic class of many of its relics. Had
the woman rescued, then fifty-two years
old, not died a story passing strange would
no doubt have been told of the race so long
hemmed in by the waste of waters about.
As ifc is, much of the story is shrouded in
mystery forever. San Francisco Exam
iner. Ruling Passion Strong In Death.
An old lady who had been a great belle
in her clay, and who even in her later life
was remarkable for the wonderful preser
vation of her beauty, died not long ago
after a short illness. Although knowing
that ber end was approaching, her dignity
and sweetness never left her, but on the
last day she was evidently worried.
"Something is on her mind," said the
doctor, and her affectionate children and
grandchildren in vain tried to find out
what troubled her, and what she wished to
communicate for she was speechless. But
all of their efforts were unavailing untd a
little girl of twelve, her great-grandchild,
divined tho pathetic entreaty expressed in
the eyes of the dying woman,
"Granny wants to have her hair
crimped," said the little one suddenly, and
it was even so. The old beauty's face
showed that at last she was understood,
and that she would have the satisfaction
of knowing that she "looked her best" to
the very end. New York Tribune.
Education and Pain.
It is almost a truism to assert that the
white man suffers infinitely more from a
bodily injury than tho savage, nis brain
and nervous system, as the outcome of
centuries of intellectual improvement, arc
far moro developed and far more highly
strung; so that Dr. Felkin, who, in" the
course of a lonsj series of surgical opera
tions performed upon patients of all na
tionalities, enjoyed unusual facilities for
forming an opinion, arrived at the deliber
ate conclusion that tho susceptibility to
pain of an average European as compared
with that of the average negro was as
three to one. And Dr. Felkin also discov
ered that the effect of a fair measure of
education upon a negro was to increase his
susceptibility to pain by one-third. Lou

A Remedy for Teething Troubles,
For teething, a Surrey "mother of
twelve" has an excellent recipe, which, in
her experience, has never failed. At the
first symptoms the child must be taken
out early in tho morning and placed upon
the back of a donkey, to be borrowed for
the occasion. Care is required here, for
the little patient mnst sit exactly upon tho
cross on tjie donkey's back and have his
face to the tf.il. Tho mother will then
lead the animal slowly forward while she
recites the Lord's Prayer, at the cloae of
which she should take the baby in her
arms, kiss him and say, "God bless him,"
and his teething troubles will be over.

ADVICE FOR THE FIANCE.
Sensible Suggestions for Young People
Who Haio Become Engaged.
After yoa have placed the engagement
ring upon the hand of your fiancee it is a
question whether you should continue to
shower valuable gifts upon the young lady.
Flowers as costly as you can afford them
can be sent as often as your purse will per
mit, but parents should have a say as to
the acceptance or refusal of jewelry by the
young lady; and in this matter it is best to
obey the father and mother, for you will
soon have the young lady all to yourself,
and it is barely possible that you will your
self object as ;trenuonslytothe importuni
ties for jewels which will undoubtedly
come from yonr young wife.
You .-hould always be with your fiancee
in public places to which you are invited,
at the opera, at theatres, at balb, at re
ception where gentlemen attend. If yon
are aloue at the ball or at the opera the
fashionable worKl will believe that yoe
have quarreled, and the fashionable world

uncalled for jealousy to bring him to the
point of a quarrel. No lady will give the
gentleman actual cause for such action.
It is a lady's privilege to fix the wedding
day. On this point the edict of fashion i

lady who was really in love failed to take
a suggestion in the matter from her pros

I do not mean to say that you can pos
sibly ljeconiu a. bore to her, but I do insist
that for the convenience and comfort of
other people in tho house yon should cut
your visits almost a3 short as when you
first began to incline favorably toward the
young lady. Ten o'clock is a very pretty
hour at which to live, and you will find
that a strict observance of this will make
future welcomes much more hearty.
Don't be enthusiastic over your fiancee to
your friends. Don't make her the subject
of your constant tall;. Everybody knows
that it is interesting to you, but you are
likely to be the only one who is ant not to
, know hew unlearably tiresome you are.
Thero is one delicate question that I have
been asked to touch upon, and that is,
Should a man of fashion kiss his fiancee,
and if so, on what occasions' There were
times when it was not in fashion to kis3
the young lady until after the ceremony,
but happily that time is only dimly recol
lected by the society men of today. The
one regulation that I believe it incumbent
on me to lay down is that when you kiss
the young lady it should be in her presenco
alone, because, while it is very pleasant
pastime to the young couple, it is bound to
be ridiculed and laughed at, even by the
sister or brother, and smiled at as foolish
by the mother, so don't show your intense
affection in the presence of any one except
the young lady herself.
In the ultra fashionable set of all cities
it is considered proper that the young lady
should always be chaperoned wherever sh
goes with her prospective husband, and no
matter what the conditions may be.
The quetion of the propriety of a young
lady's acceptance of invitations to her
fiance's homo is by no means settled. There
are many woithy dowagers who would,
under no circumstances, favor the accept
ance by their daughters of an invitation
to visit the sisters of her fiance. Boston
How Tropical Traits Arc Protected.
It may have struck you that most trop
ical fruits have thick or hard or nauseous
rinds, which need to be torn off before the
monkeys or birds for whose use they are
intended, can get at them and eat them.
Our northern strawberries, raspberries, cur
rants and whortleberries, developed with
a single eye to the pretty robins and finches
of temperate (-slimes, can be popped into
the mouth wholo and eaten as they stand;
they arc, meant for, small birds to devour,
and to disperse the tiny undigested, nutlike
seeds in return l'cr tho bribe of the soft
pulp that surrounds them. But it is quite
otherwise with oranges, shaddocks, ban
anas, plantains, mangoes and pineapples;
those great tropical fruits can only be eaten
properly with a knife and tork, after strip
ping off the"hard and often acrid rind that
guards and preseryesthem.
They lay themselves' out for dispersion
by monkeys, toucans and other relatively
largo and powerful fruit eaters; and the
rind is put there as a earner against small
thieves who would rob the swfcet pulp, but
be absolutely incapable of 'carrying away
and dispersing the large and richly stored
seeds it covers. Cornhill Magazine.
Thackeray as aSSfcowman.
In Thackeny's case the justification of
artificial names, if it bo right to speak of
justification, lies in this, that with all
the solid reality of the life portrayed we
are never allosved to lose sight of the
author and his art in portraiture. He is
ever at hand to underline the snaboery or
laugh off the pathos. There is a strong
strain of the satirist in him, and satire is
akin to allegory; there is even a strain of
the caricaturist ready to emerge in the
midst of his noblest aA.
He is especially fond of putting on the
airs and graces of the showman. His pref
ace to "Vanity Fair" is headed "Before
the Curtain," and this great novel of real
life concludes with "Come, children, let us
shut up the box and the puppets, for our
play is played out." And we accept Thack

Points About a Good Horse.
There are some points which are valu
able in horses of every description. The
head should be proportionately large and
well set on, the lower jawbones should be
sufficiently far apart to enable the head to
form an angle with the neck, which gives
it free motion and a graceful carriage, and
prevents it bearing too heavily on the
hand. The eye should be large, a little
prominent, and the eyelids fine and thin.
The ear should be small and erect and
quick in motion. Tho lop ear indicates
dullness and stubbornness; when too far
back there is a disposition to mischief.

Kerosene for DandrufT.
The best thing to clear dandruff from
the hair is kerosene. Of course, if it is
used, it ought to be scented, and that can
be done. I made what little I own on that
discovery. It was when I was running a
little shop in one of the interior towns.
By mistake I put some on a man's hair one
day, and he came back to tell me that it
worked like a charm. He did not know
what it was, and I aid not tell ham. He
said he wanted some more of it and I gave
it to him. Then I bought several gallons
of it, scented it, put it in bottles, gave it
some high coundmg name and people
bought it by the dozen bottles. The de
mand was so great that I was afraid the
grocer in the town would get oa to me and
I sent to Chicago and bought a barrel of
it. I sold every drop of it for the hair. 1
got my start in that way, and that is why
I am now in business in the city. Inter

duce her to take another Sixpence from her
well filled purse. This attitude of hers of
course is partly due to the fact that she
has a better understanding of the value of
sixpences, but it is a good deal more due to
her keener sense of justice, wherever she
is concerned, and her patient determina
tion to accept nothing less than justice.

When erderta sr state WHAT form Is
Cactuses are the hedgehogs of tho
vegetable world; their motto is "Nemo
me imptroe lacessit." Many a time in the
West Indies I have pushed my hand for
a second into a bit of tangled bush, as
the negroes call it, to seize some rare
flower or some beautiful insect and been
punished for tvrenty-four hours after
ward by the stings of the almost invisi
ble and glasslike little cactus needles.
The reason for this bellicose disposition
on the part of the cactuses is a tolerably
easy one to gness. Fodder is rare in the
desert. Tho starving herbivores that
find themselves from time to time be
lated on the confines of such thirsty re
gions would seize with avidity upon any
succulent plant which offered them food
and drink at once in their last extremity.
In the ceaseless war between herbi
vore and plant, which is waged every
day and all day loug the whole world
over with far greater persistence than
the war between carnivore and prey,
only those species of plant can survivo
in such exposed situations which happen
to develop spines, thorns or prickles as
a means of defense against the mouths
of hungry and desperate assailants.
Grant Allen in Macmillan's Magazine.
The Father of 3Iodern Jurisprudence.
Louis IX was practically tho founder
of modern jurisprudence. About the
year 1241 he noticed the abuses which
were caused in France by men taking
into their own hands the work of re
dressing their own wrongs, and pub
lished a proclamation establishing the
quarantine du roi. This forbade private
redress for wrongs for tho space of forty
days after the injury was committed.
During that time the injured person
must seek redress and satisfaction in tho
king's court, and if his wrong were not
righted at the end of forty days he
might then take its rectification into his
This proclamation made justico speedy
and tolerably sure, although of course
its administration was in a rough and
! ready way, and unless the records aro at
' fault some law of this kind prevailed in
Louisiana at the time when Missouri
was a part of the French king's posses
sions. Philadelphia Ledger.
How New Tork Appears to a Foreigner.
Of the ugliness, conf usedness and fihab
biness of New York nothing now can be
said; but full justice is done to the Cen
tral park, which in another generation
will be the most beautiful public resort
in the world. It would, however, be al
together unfair to judge of America by
New York; no other town in the Union
can vie with it in dirt, inconvenience
and meanness of appearance. London
Writing letters Without Sight.
A woman whose eyesight has passed
almost beyond the failing point finds
6uch relief in using the ridged tablets
upon which paper is laid that she says
all nearly blind persons should do like
wise. "They have made letter writing
a pleasure," she says, "where beforo it
was a pain. I put a pin in where I leave
off, and I can begin right again after
any interruption. 2ew lork Times.
When Ton Ar in Doubt About a Diamond.
Put your finger behind tho etone and
look at it through the diamond as
