THE CZAR ALARXED.
They have discovered that they
are a vigorous, fullv restored
nation. Tho Russian alliance
has completed their realization
of strength. They are impatient
to test their power. The average
Frenchman would go to war with
England to-day with almost as
much enthusiasm as he wonld
march toward the Ehine.
This newest passion of France
has .surprised her own Govern
ment, has alarmed Russia and
has startled all Europe. The
Czar has demanded that next
month's welcomo to the Russians
shall be restricted to tho form
followed at Cronstadfc two years
ago. Paris has begun prepara
tions for a series of the most
magnificent fetes in history. The
Russian Ambassador announces
that the visitors will accept only
official entertainments. Paris is
annoyed, but she will make her
demonstration nevertheless. De

exhibit of national power, which

A dangerous lunatic who had de
signs on tbe President's life
entered tho White House by
stealth this morning and wa3
making for the upper story,
where ilr Cleveland's office is
situated, when discovered and
placed under arrest. How tho
lunatic eluded the police and got
into the basement of the White
Houso unnoticed is a rays try.
Ho appeared to the colored cook
in the basement.
The old woman, alarmed at the
stranger's actions, tried to escape

walked out of tho main door and

When tho Iuuicsaw Hiblo ho
grabbed a clackjuck from Hible's
pocket beforo the latter could
prevent him, and a desporato
struggle followed. Tho lunatic
was fiually lifted into tho pratrol
waggon and takon to the nearest

Tho man replied sullenly: "I

"What chair i" was asked.
"The Presidential chair."
"Don't yon think tho Presi

"No, I don't," was the luna

it by fair means or foul. Givo us
