Simply because you have never oeen it

MR. GLADSTONE AT WORK.
A Basjr Man -with a I'nsaion for Sa-ring
Three writing tables stand in the
Hawarden castle library, and not one of
them is for show. At ono table Mrs.
Gladstone -writes many of her letters;
the second, standing between two win
dows, is Mr. Gladstone's political dcslc
It looks now too neat, too tidy, by far,
for tlio taste of any Gladstonian politi'
clan; the blotting- pad has an unused
air about it; the pen-wipers, racks,
knives and other appurtenances stand
about with a mathematical precision
which incuns want o use, and there is
neither note nor leaflet to-be seen. The
political desk, at ell events forthepres-
ent, must be numbered among tho un
employed. But turn to the third, the
literary writing table in the niche by
the window, which is the most peaceful
corner in that pi ace of peace. You may
there at any time during the day see a
sight-that will mako your heart rejoice,
and that will linger in your mind while
pictures linger there at all.
The whole desk is covered with refer
ence books of all shapes and sizes. They
Eorni a wall around three sides, and
there is only an opening in the front oi
the desk jubt wide enough to allow Mr,
Gladstone to place the sheets of fools
cap on "w hick he writes. There at this
desk the G. O. M. sat lately all day long,
with very short intervals, absorbed in
"Bishop Butler," tho man whom he
gives a place among the best of men
who have eer lived. The number of
lolunies required, br Mr. Gladstone for
be Mies I
find their counterpart &
in grace and beauty
in many of the de-
artists originate the
difference being that
the Lilies are for 2.

r Jewelers only. ja
referencels almost enniess fhe has often
to search through one bulky tome after
the other for some chance paragraph
that may help him to elucidate a dark
place in the '"Analogy." There he sits,
absorbed in his work; now writing
rapidly and eagerly for soeo minutes;
now throwing down his pen and dip
ping into one of the books with which
he has surrounded himself. Some
times a specially favored artist has been
admitted to take Mr. Gladstone's por
trait, but it is on express condition that
the "sitter" shall not in any way be dis
tracted from, his -work. Not once doea
Mr. Gladstone's attention flag, though
you may perchance be sauntering about
the room in company with a member
of his family, or be privileged to have a
.-chat with Mrs. Gladstone as, in loving
pride in all her husband's doings, she
points out to you this, that or the other
of the objects in the library to which, at
taches a special interest for him. Not
that Mr. Gladstone is altogether Indif
ferent to violent interruptions. In
fact, he objects to them, strongly, and
ho does not hesitate to say so. But
when it happens that he himself has in
vited you to "come into my room," he
forgive you if you appear while he is
at work, and works on, -undisturbed by
your presence or your voice, with an
absorption in his occupation which, is
nothing short of marvelous. Whatever
the work may bo which, he has in hand,
it takes hold of him bo entirely that he
has to be aroused from it as most people
are .roused from sleep. Mr. Gladstone
does not, as a rule, car to talk of his
idiosyncrasies, since he holds the sin
cere opinion that he is very much like
the rest of the world. But he acknowl
edges that his faculty of concentration
is his special gift, the one by which li
is distinguished from other people.
Another reason why Mr. Gladstone
pets through so astounding" an amount
of work is his extraordinary habit of
using up odds and ends of time, One
'day, not long ago, lie was going out for
a drive into Chester after luncheon,
His pudding was very hot, bo he went
away from the table, changed his
clothes, got readj' for the drive nnd
came back and finished his pudding,
thus saving the ten minutes during
,which his pudding cooled!
From ten a, m. to luncheon time Mr.
Gladstone spends regulnrly in the li
'braryv hard at work. But when the
gong sounds he puts down his pen, for
promptness in everything has become a
second nature to him, and he is proba
bly in the dining-room before anyone
else arrives. Pctz alone, if that little
creature can arrange it so, is as prompt
os his master, for his two ruling pas
sions love for his master and love for
his dinner come into play at the sound
of the luncheon gong. "Westminster

Havana, Cuba, April 7. The insur
gents have plundered and burned three
stores at Sumidero, province of Pinar
The news was conveyed to the nearest
Spanish commander and a force of cav
alry was sent in pursuit of the enemy.
The troopers overtook the insurgents
near the city of Pinar del Rio and killed
six of them.
At Vahos the insurgents have burned
a number of houses and have destroyed
by fire In this vicinity the splendid farm
of La Cuavina and all the fields about

Tirado and Barrigonas.
The insurgents under Bandera recent
ly surprised a detachment of Span.sh
troops at night by advancing upon the
la'tcer's outposts and cheering for Spain.
But the troops, consisting of the gueril
la of the village of Consolacion and the
garrison of tne toyn, Del Norte, soon
found out the "deception and opened
fire upon the insurgents. The latter,
however, threw the place into a panic
and succeeded in burning five stores be
fore they -vi ere beaten off. The engage
ment lasted about three hours and was
remarkable for the brilliant defense of
the small fort made by the troops. The
insurgents left twenty-nine killed in the
streets and in the mornig the troops
seme out to reconnortre found sixty new
ly made graves of insurgents, and it is
supposed that the latter retired with
SHOTS FROM; A GUNBOAT.
Lieutenant Commander Juan Cervera
of 'the Spanish gunboat Alvarado, cruis
ing along the coast of Baracoa, province
of Santiago de Cuba, saw a number of
boats containing insurgents trying to
hwle in the swamps near Port Maravi.
The Alvarado opened fire upon the in
surgents, who jumped out of their boats
and succeeded in gaining the shore,
from whence they returned the gun
boat's fire. The guns and the Mauser
fire of the gunboat soon sJenced the in
surgents, who eventually fied. The loss
of the enemy Is not known. One sailor
v.-as seriously wounded.
Delayed advices received here from
Vinales say that Maceo attacked the
village of Palma, near that place, on
March 29, and succeeded in, entering the
place by passing unobserved through
the tobacco fields in it3 vicinity. He
plundered a number of stores and ap
proached a church which lud been con
verted into a. fort. The insurgents,
however, were repulsed witi the loss of
thirty-nine killedand withdrew, taking
with them the corpses of as many more
killed. The Insurgents also retired with
ninety wounded. The garrison lost six
killed and seventeen wounded.
There have been several ekirmishes
recently in th province of Pinar del Rio,
in addition to those already reported,
during which five insurgents were kill
ed and one was captured.
ALL. SPANISH VICTORIES.
The column of troops from the Rey
battalion, operating in the province of
Pinar del Rio, has found a repository of

ed the insurgents with a heavy loss.
Colonel Moncada fought the insur
gents near Cienfuegos amd put them to
flight. They leflt thirteen killed and
carried off numerous wounded. The
military line running from Mariel has

THE HONEST DANE.
Not So Good When Abroad as When u.
"I like all the Danes, from the profes
sionals, as they are called, to the stolid
little country children who 'cap' so as
siduously to the stranger man. Bui
with this proviso: That they haveno
adulterated their native character with
too much of the tincture of cosmopoli
tanism. The American Dane is often a
highly unpleasing specimen of a nun,
Ho has assimilated, perforce, much ol
the vulgarity and dollar worship sc
common in the country of his adop
tion, and he openly despises his un
traveled compatriots for their sim
plicity and contentment in thatstate oi
life in which circumstances and theh
own want of enterprise have fixed them.
The genuine Dane would, I believe,
rather die than cheat his fellow man,
and eepeoially stranger. But yom
emigrant Dane, home for a holiday
from Iowa or Minnesota, or, worse still
returned as incapable, is quite anothex
pair of shoes. Withal, if English traders
in Danish butter and meat, and Eag
lish importers of; cycles to thi3 excU
lent cycling country are to be believed
in all honest dealing the Danish tradei
is as keen for his own interests as he
ought to be for the sake of his self-respect."

n cigar at five for twopence. He disa
bused my mind of the idea that hii
icountry is lightly taxed, and that i1
jjknows next to nothing of trials like
purs under the poor laws. I was sorry
(to hear, moreover, that there are wicked
old men in Denmark -who assign theix

native parish, which ia then bound to

three flights of stairs and get my um

stairs after my umbrella," and Hr
