The manner in which nwiwchs
are paid their salaries varies consi
derably. The Kmperor of Russia, for iu
slauee, is the only ljuropean sove
reign who is entitled to draw on
the revenues of the country over
which he rules' whenever he pleses
and to almost an unlimited extent.
All the vast sums accuring from
various forms of taxation in Rus
sia are banked to the credit of two
officals named as the imperial treas
urers, who discharge all liabilities
of the Russian government.
Under the Russian constitution
the czar is entitled to receive a sev
enth share of the revenue of the
country, and though he, as a mat
ter of fact, never draws upon the
treasury to this extent, the emperor
of Russia is yet by far the best paid
and wealthiest of Kuropcan inon-
The Kmperor of Germany is in re
ceipt of n salary of ,100,000 per
annum from the state, but his maj
esty has, of course, many other
ways of supplementing this pay.
The salary is paid into the em
peror's private banking account
twice a year, the check for it be
ing signed by no fewer than
seven officials, and is finally indors
ed by the kaiser himself.
The emperor also receives a "mi
litary and naval" allowance, wheh
amouts to a big sum, and the ex
pense in connection with the main
tenance of the royal household at
Potsdam are paid quarterly by the
King Kdward receives a quarter
ly check from the paymaster general
for his salary as a monarch; the
check is what is known as a nego
tiable receipt, and is sent to the
keeper of the privy purse, by whom
if is signed on behalf of the king,
and then lodged to the credit of
his majesty's private banking ac
The Kmperor of Austria is put
to some personal inconvenience be
fore he can obtain his salary.
On the 1st of June and 1st of
December the Austrian monarch
pays a visit to the office of the
state treasury, where he is received
bv three imnortant officials.
One of those officials then reads
out a document to the monarch,
reminding him of the many duties
he owes to the state, and exhorting
him to the faithful performance of
The emperor is then asked if the
amount is sufficient, and on his re
plying to the question in the affirm
ative, given a receipt to sign for
the money, which is, in due course,
lodged to the credit of the imperial
The King of Portugal's salary
is never paid to him direct, but is
vested in the care of three officials,
upon whom the king can draw
whenever he requires money.
Each of these purse keepers, as
they are called, receive ,6500 per
annum, which the King of Portu
gal has to pay out of his own pock
et, so that the arrangement costs
the king ,1,500 a year, which
could be very easily saved by the
dismissal of such entirely needless
officials as the purse keeeprs.
The Sultan of Turkey has no al
lowance or salary; he simply in
forms the Grand Vizier when he
wants money, and that official has
to see that the amount required is
forthcoming promptly, otherwise it
it is more than likely he might lose
his head. Pearson's Weekly.

The following changes have been
made in Hawaiian lights and aids
On June iG, 1905, the Iihaiua
Anchorage Uuoy, painted red, was
replaced by a black and white per
pendicular striped, second-class nun
buoy, Territorial type, in 8J4
fathoms of water in a position 30
feet N. of the old position. This
buoy is on a line of bearing NIC.
and SV. with the new light and
marks the mid-channel entrance to
Iihaiua Roads where anchorage
may be had inside of the buoy
within the limits of the white sector
of the light is not less than 30 feet
of water within 300 yards of the

crown of the roof in the line of

I.ahaina Light Station, located
on the eastward end of Government
Wharf, Lahaiua Harbor, easterly
side of Auau Channel and westerly
shore of the northwesterly part of
the Island of Maui. On June 20,
1905, this light will be discontinued
and on that date a new light will be
displayed from a tower 20 feet east
of the old location. The new struc
ture is a square, pyramidal, trestle
tower with the upper 10 feet walled
in to form a room, painted white
with lead colored trimmings. The
lantern is displayed in the open air
on a box-shaped structure with a
rail forming a gallery around it.
The new light will be 60 feet above
high water and 55 feet above base
of structure. The light shows
through 1760 between the bearings
S. 480 H. (mag.) and N. 360 W.
(mag.). It is a fixed white lens
lantern light visible 12 miles, with
2 red sectors visible 7 miles, which
red sectors mark the reef line which
extends about 300 yards out from
the shore line. The white sector
marks the anchorage in Lahaina
Roads and the break in the reef
through which the boats laud at
the Territorial Government Wharf.
Between the bearings S. 480 E. and
E. (mag.) the light shows red.
Between E. (mag.) and N. 360 W.
(mag.) the light shows red.
Anchorage may be had within
the white sector in not less than 30
feet of water to within 300 yards of
The Ynv or the World.
It works about like this most of
the time when one man or one line
of business is very prosperous some
other man or line of business is apt
to be catching it. When potatoes'
are worth $1.50 a bushel it is a good
thing for the man wtio raises them,
but hard on the man who has to
buy them. When the salaried man
can buy a barrel of good apples for
$1.50 the man with the orchard is
dodging the sheriff. The rain
which makes one man's pasture
green spoils his neighbor's hay,
and when wheat men are buying
pianos and surreys and starting
national banks the day laborer
grunts at the price of flour. A pe
riod of hard times makes work and
prosperity for lawyers, and a set of
aching molars a paying job for the
dentist; the undertaker thrives dur
ing epidemics and fatalities to hu
man life, while sickness and super
stition of people make millionaires
of the patent medicine men. The
intensely cold weather builds up
the fortune of the coal man, and
when people are dying of sun stroke
the iceman is enlarging his bank
account, and so it goes, the mis
fortunes and dire needs of some
insuring good times and prosperi
ty for others.
A Hostonian at Cape Breton hav
ing run up a bill of 10 cents in a
barber shop handed the proprietor
a Canadian dollar bill. He got
back in change four American
"quarters" and a dime. The bar
ber explained tint in that part of
the world American 25-cent pieces
passed for 20 cents. There the
story ends, But it is well known
that in many sections of this coun
try Canadian coins pass from hand
to hand at a similar discount, 20
cents American for 25 cents Cana
dian. Thus all the conditions are
realized for the puzzle so often at
tacked on the ground that its prem
ises are absurd. The traveler could
bring his four quarters back to this
countn , buy some 5 cent article
with each of them, and receive four
Canadian quarters in change. If
he were regularly traveling back
and forth across the border, he could
keep up this exchange indefinitely,
spending 25 cents in each country
without ever reducing his original
dollar. The puzzle is, of course,
