THEBAW'S PALACE AT MAHDALAY.
"The plncc consists of the loyal
palace in this center, n pile of hand
some teak buildings gilded nil over,
raised on n teirnce about ten feet
high, surrounded by a court-yard
with guard-houses and gardens to
the noith and south. On the west
it abuts on the palisade and wall,
which run all round, but on the cast,
which was the usual entrance, was n
road running north and south to two
gales, and beyond this to the east
were Ihu ar&cnal, mint, eoiincil
fhaniber, magazine, etc. All lotiud
the palace is :i line palisade made of
upright logs or leak, 1 foot in illa
metcr and 1-1 feet high; inside this,
about 70 feet, is a M-foot high biick
wall. The palisade is about 700
yards square, and the city which
sm rounds the palace is 1: miles
square. This last is surrounded by
a lino brick wall about 30 feet high,
with u moat outside 100 yards wide.
The gateways and bastion-like pio
jeetions aic capped by loofs in
pyramidal Btyle, and the wall is
crenelated. Tho wholo looks rather
well. Outside again aic the subuibs,
stretching on the west to the liver
bank. The roads arc mostly execra
ble, and the buildings mostly bamboo
huts. The monasteries aio excep
tions, being very handsome, made
of teak, carved profusely and in
some places gilded all over. The
inside of the palace is a strange
mixture of gilding, mirrors and
dirt ! dust of ages in every corner ;
sanitary arrangements apparently
nil ; the gardens miserable wilder
nesses; the tanks covered with
scum. 1 don't really believe that
Thebaw ever went into these gar
dens, but he may have, sis the palace
was so dirty. He never stirred out
of the palace inclosurc, anyhow.

THE INOFFENSIVE MONGOLIAN.
Ecar Admiral Davis, commanding
tho Asiatic squadron, has made an
interesting report to the Navy De
partment under date of Hongkong,
On the Cth reports were received
at Hongkong of a disturbance at
Chinkiang, in which missionaries
were grossly abused by Chinese
mobs. The presence of a man-of-war
was requested. Jt bccins that
a mob of woikmcn went to the
houses of two American missionaiics
and took them out by force, and,
having bound them hand and foot,
took them to the local magistrate,
.who immediately released them.
Other assaults were committed on
missionaries about the same time,
causing considerable excitement in
the town. The trouble was caused
by the lcfusal of the missionaries to
comply with the demands made by
the contractor for the building
erected for them.
Admiral It. Vcvey Hamilton, 1$.
N., sent the llritish ship Wanderer
to Chinkiang for the piotcction of
the missionrrics, and notified Rear
Admiral Davis by telegraph that
she would remain until lclicvcd by
an American man-of-war. Admiral
Davis telegraphed his thanks, and
directed the United States steamer
Marion to proceed to Chinkiang at
once and relieve the British vessel.
Her commanding officer was diiected
to confer with United States Consul
Ucrgholz in regard to the reported
outrages, and to take such steps as
might be deemed advisable. fS. F.
THE STRENGTH OF M0RM0NISM.
George Q. Cannon, having failed
to escape the punishment due his
polygamous ciimc by trying to run
away, has now given bail. The
amount of the bail is large, but he
can afford to forfeit it. Ho is one
of the high dignitaries of the Mor
mon Church, an institution which
has a revenue of about one million
and a half a year. Jt could bail out
every bishop and high functionary
of the church and they might all run
away. Still a good bank account
would be left. The strength ef
polygamy lies very largely in the
wealth of the church as an institu
tion. Chicago Inter-Ocean.
BIC, BUT PROVINCIAL.
In some things New Yoik is
great, but in many she is provincial.
There arc some big men over there,
but tho horizon of tho average New
Yorker is very narrow. To him the
Unitcd'Statcs is Manhattan island,
with somo outlying colonies in New
Jersey, Connecticut and New Yoik
state. The newspapers do their best
to perpetuate this ignorance, and it
is only by the reports of commer
cial travelers who scour the West in
scarcli of victims and mei chant
princes who come to Philadelphia to
have a good time that New York
finds out what a great and beautiful
country wo really have. Philadel
Smythckins is trying to arouse the
courage of his better half, who has
recently lost her pet parrot and is
ovcrcomo with grief. "Conic come !

lid The premiums on a Tontiuo po

ablo In tho event ot death, the holder of
tho Tontino policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve and the accu

4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of tho
