But l.arfro iw the cstatci nre. mid thoy
produce somo i'20,000 n year, they nre
not larjfc enough for the demands made
upon tlieni The Into earl left com ler
nble dehtB, and nearly 100.000 has had
to be raised to pay them off The main
tennnceof Longford castle li paid to cost
18.000 ii year Ono way and another
tho income dltuippenrfl, and meanwhile
Lord Folltpstono wants to marry and
make a start on his own account. Un
der these circumstances ho mid his father
have cast envious oyes on the family
pictures. Out of !i00 three will not be
Kreatly micsed. even if thoy bo u Hol
bein, a Velasquez and u Guido, and tho
price that can -be got is 55.000
Of course tho dead e.irl never meant
anything liko this to happen when ho
tiod up the pictures with the land as
strictly as the law would nllow him, but
in these latter days tho law has exhibited
a tendency slow indeed, but still a
tendency to becomo revolutionary. Tho
tenant for lifo can sell tho land without
asking any one's leave, though of course
ho cannot pocket tho money. And as to
the heirlooms, he can turn those, too.
Into a sum of money bearing investment,
provided only ho can got the sanction of
a judge. In the present case the earl
and his Bon easily convinced Mr. Justice
Chitty of the propriety of tho sale, but
tho trustee, Lord Penznnco, and other
members of the family opposed their de
signs and enrried their opposition to the
court of appeal.
This course has done them no good,
but it has enabled Lord Esher to give
one of his characteristic judgments, and
some interesting reminiscences of his
early acquaintance with the aristocracy
of theso realms. Pictures are all very
well, but it is not "to be thought of that
a youth, whose futher owns a castlo, and
whose grandfather died in debt, should
demean himself by marrying on eight
hundred a year, besides what ho could
make by honest labor. Tho distinct
heirs, indeed, will lose their chance of
ever succeeding to the Holbein and its
companions, but thisiB a matter of senti
ment to be postponed to practical every
day considerations, nnd they will nt any
rato know that tho price is locked up in
some safe investment. Tho interest on
55,000 is not to be despised. Happy tho
family with such a resource in cases of
.emergency. London News

time there was pome other day fed npiirt
nnd made memorable by this wiine cus
tom, for even when Adam nnd Bvo left
Eden they must have mndo a moire io
cnt no more apples of the tree of tho
knowlcdgo of good nnd ovil, should they
chanco to como across them. i
'But Indeed tho making of good reso- j
lntlons has always been no easy that one '
marvels why any day in wpecinl should I
ever linvo boon sot npnrt for tho purpose. '
Yet tho fnct Is that almost every one
likes to postpono the time of relinquish
ing tho particular naughtiness which
for any reason hns become objection- '
nble, whether tho renson bo tho baio I
fact of Ubowi character or bo tho In- I
jury it works.
It is bo easy to bo good next week or
the week after, because that iwrson who
is going to bo good next week or tho (
week nftcr is another Individual, tho
person of that timo another person, not
one's self, not tho person of this time.
It is sadifiicult to say, Now, now, now
is tho timo to leavo off! hecanso tho per- i
sou whom "now" nddrews is ono's self, i
and experiences tho whole bitterness of
tho renunciation. And for this reason I
wo may observe that usually tho timo ,
for carrying the good resolve into effect
is seldom this moment or this day, but
is always among tho to-morrows; and
thus uncounted good resolutions aro made
in any part of tho last year, tho timo
for their budding into action being
always loft for tho first day of tho now
It would seem, then, that this first day
of tho now year is really a sort of sacri
ficial day, and whilo we never celebrate
it with external ceremonial as a day of
Bacredncss, as wo do many other holi
days, it is in very truth a day of sacrcd
ncss in tho effect that it has upon us as a
means of grace, let us say, since there is
no question but that tho making of good
resolutions is a means of grace, no mat
ter how poorly wo uso tho means after
ward. On that ono day of all tho 305
wo have the chanco to make ourselves
better than Wo were by all the height of
our desire and our resolve, and thus
something of tho loftiness of the desire
and tho resolve belongs about tho day.

Georgo Parsons Lathrop is not unas
finming in his dress, and resembles a
prosperous man about town. Although
nnugly built and tall enough to wear a
Prince Albert coat his everyday costume
consists usually of a nobby sack coat
suit of clothes. Ho is never overdressed.
There aro no intricate plots in the
style William Dean Howells adopts. He
does not belong to the dude, tho Delsar
tian or tho London chappy school of
fashion, but to a very eobor and unos
tentatious American common sense
echool. To see mm walking down Broad
way in the great throng no ono would
suspect that ho was "one o' them liter
ary fellers." for he looks like other peo
ple. En Venezia, where bo resided as consul
some years, he acquired a tasto for rich
color, which, however, he does not per
mit to oxist in his clothing. A dull gray
suit, Prince Albert coat, more frequent
ly unbuttoned than otherwise, is the ap
parel that he is often seen in. The story
that Mr. Howells preferred a shawl to a
huge warm overcoat is not true, al
though shawls are more or less popular
nmong tho Boston gentlemen of tho up
per tendom. Mr. Howells, it is Baid,
rather likes what is known as the serapo,
a species of shawl that is wound around
tho body, but considers it too elaborate
for practical ubo. Haberdasher.
Not Used to Railroad Tickets.
Perhaps the most excessive ignorance
that the gate tenders at tho Sixth street
railway station have witnessed for a long
timo waB displayed one night whilo some
Grand Army men wore waiting to de
part for Boston. A tall, rawboned youth
tried to pass through the gate to reach
his train. How he ever learned where
to go to get it no one knows He was
stopped and his ticket demanded. It
took him some timo to search his clothes
and find his ticket, but he finally suc
ceeded, whilo tho waiting crowd behind
him grew moro and more impatient.
When ho handed his ticket to tho gato
tender he walked away. "Uome back
and get your ticket!" was shouted. "Oh,
I guess I don't want it," he replied,
"Yes: como back." Ho again declined
and walked further away. The crowd
iiad now become quite interested, and
several voices joined in an entreaty for
him to return. Ho persisted, however,
that he did not want it, and had not a
train official roughly ordered hira to go
back and get it his modesty would
doubtless have prevented him from

Address D 64, olllco '
Tho above advertisement in ono of the
Chicago dailies attracted tho attention
of a reporter. A correspondence was
entered into with tho result of an in
terview being arranged for, tho adver
tiser being quite unawaro that publicity
would be given to what was developed.
The manager of the "social agency," for
such ho called his establishment, was
found occupying an office in ono of the
tall buildings, and explained that the
general purpose of his business was tho
leaving of calling cards, thereby saving
society people tho trouble of doing this
work themselves. "Ordinarily," ho said,
"I employ half a dozen carriages and an
equal number of footmen. I can savo a
lady tho trouble of driving around and
leaving her card by doing the work for
her, and if you want anything done that
way I would be pleased to serve you. My
charges are moderate."
"What do you charge?"
"My regular rates are $1 per 100 cards
left, but I make a reduction for heavy
"How do you mnnago to do tho work
"Why, by leaving cards for a largo
nuinber of ladies with ono trip, whore
several hundred would bo required it it
were done by tho ladies themselves."
"What aro your special features for
"That, of course, ia our biggest day,
not only from tho number of calls that
aro xnado, but because wo work on Now
Year's in a double capacity, not only de
livering caids for those who cliooso to
employ us, but leaving them in the
baskets hung outsido of our patrons'
doors. We will have over a hundrod
carriages calling this New Year's, and
wo will have to supply them with gen
tlemen in dress suits. Wo will also have
a number of callers on foot, at half rates,
as somo prefer these."
"What is tho advantage of all this?"
"Why, it gives prestige to tho ladies
called upon. If thoy can seem to receive
bo many calls, although not entertaining,
they must be considered very desirable
peoplo to know. Seel1' Chicago Herald.
