Sugar Trade of tho United States.
The 2few York Shipping and Commcrciql
List had a timely article on tho sngar trade of
this country in a recent issue. It notes tho
fact that the competition of beet sngar has
now attained to such proportions that it "challenges
the supremacy of the cane product and
is contesting the privilege of controlling tho
sugar markets of tho world. This has been
the potent factor in shaping the course of the
sugar trade ialBB4, and it is likely to continue.

tons; in 1882, about 7000 tons;
6Uar imports 1G,000 tons; and in
16S4, 85,000 tons wero imported, being nearly
fifty per cent more than 1882. At the samo
ratio of incrcaso wo should import 125,000
tons of beet sugar in 1885 from Franco and
I Germany. The possibilities in this direction
are certainly startling. Brazil sent us more
"raws" in 1854 than ever before. Owing to a
short crop-Manila sugar fell off, but the Tcst
India Islands gavo tho usual quantity. Hawaiian
Islands crop increased by 10,294 tons.
The sugar crop of Louisiana yielded 12e, 1 43
tons, a decrease of 6,835 tons aB compared
with 1883. Tho Alvarado beet sugar refinery
produced 1,650,000 pounds of sugar during
1884. This is tho only manufactory of tho
kind in tte United States. Sorchum did not
exceed 1,000,000 pounds, and the supply of
maple sugar is estimated at 25,000 tons for

by roboiling foreign molasses. The
aggrcgato consumption of cane sugar, domestic
and foreign, in tho United last year was 1,-265,283

When it is remembered that the lowest

could be seen tho remains of tho old staircase
built years before; also tho holes in which it
is said tho rack was fixed upon which Anno
Askero was tortured are visible in tho floor of
tho vault. In this building Guy Fawkes was
imprisoned with his companions, and it is related
of him that after thirty minutes, during
which ho was tortured, he confessed. The
walls of tho prison are covered with inscriptions
made by various prisoners."

Twelve smaller towers encircle thoMarger or
White Tower. There is one lower, the entrance
to which is known as tho tjJQodygalc.
Ascending the stairway, rooms full bf curious
and great reminiscences will bo seen. On, the
wall of a small chamber on the firstfloor is n
inscription made by the Bishop of Hoss, who
was an active partisan of Mary Queen of
ScotB. Anothct room on tho same floor is
celebrated as tho one wherein Fclton, who
murdered Buckingham, blessed tho pcoplb on
tho way to prison. The historical Colonel
Richardson was also imprisoned in the same
room after tho Restoration.
Tho upper flwr of tho Tower has a room
wherein the murder of tho two Princes, Edward
and Richard, tooplaco. Its windowB
open upon a narrow passage, and it is said
that the assassins eutcrcd by these windows.
Of late these rooms- have been subdivided.
Here, after the snrder of tho Princes, Margaret
of Cheyne was imprisoned. She
was bettor known as tho wild woman who
excited the second pilgrim invasion of Yorkshire
in the reign of Henry Till., the object
of the pilgrimage being to overthrow tho
power of Cromwell aud restore Catheriue of
Aragon. In this Tower, Dudley, Earl of
Northumberland, was imprisoned, aud from
thenco was led to the scaffold. Archbishop
Cranmcr also was in custody in this celebrated
Tower, as waB also Henry, Earl of Northumberland,
in tho reign of Elizabeth. Ho
shot himself subsequently, to avoid a confiscation
of his estate.
Tho Houses of Parliament, which include
the Honso of Commons, are a vast structure

A writer for one of the French papers, from

markable shrewdness of Bismark in playing
off one party against tho other to gain his

only eighty-one out of 307 mcmbers.and these
eighty-one are divided into two factions. Tho

It is BiBmark's policy to always keep

who want to crush tho opposition. As an illustration
of his frankness in his mcthods,it is related

Amorlcan Jpbors In Paris.
A comical, successful and innocent practical
joke was recently played off by two
young American artists upon sundry of
their comrades and countrymen in Paris.
Thejr dressed up a Moorish peddler who
was in the habit of frequenting their studios
with his wares, and also of occasionally
acting as their modeh to personate an
Eastern Pacha. Attired in a scarlet robe
superbly embroidered with gold, a vast
white turban, a rich silk sash sustaining a
knife, in a green velvet scab
bard and a Mahometan rosary, a white
bournous and a pair of white slippers, the
Moor looked an Oriental dignity to tho
very life. The most absurd part of the
joke was that he took his metamorphosis
quite au seneux, and insisted upon being
treated with all tho deference due to area!
Pacha. The young artists then took him
down to the Hotel Chatham, and introduced
him on all sides to the American habitues
of the place as Suleiman Digna Mustapha
Pacha, a special envoy from the Sultan, a
general in the Turkish army, etc., etc.
His Excellency was an immense success,
some of the party present who had spent
some time in the East declaring that the
evidences of high birth and breeding in
his physique and manners were unmistakable.
After a pleasant evening and much
conversation, carried on through the medium
of one of the painters, who had planned
the joke, and who spoke Arabic (it
was deemed best to suppress tho Moor's
real and extensive knowledge of French
and English,) tho Pacha took his leave,
inviting his new friends to como to visit
him, and promising to get up a lion hunt
in their honor onhis vast estates in Africa.
Tho American artists then took him to a
' restaurant and treated him to a sumptuous
dinner, after which they drove back to the
studio, apd the Moor laid aside his gorgeous
borrowed attire to assume tho garb
of an Oriental pedlar. Excltangc.
A young lady from ono of tho normal
schools in Boston was recently engaged
by a resident of this city to teach two little
bright ones their primer lessons. She
wore ''beauteous" glasses and looked lovingly
at the little ones.
"Gome hero, my little darlings. Do you
know I am to impart tho necessary information
to fit you for your mature years!"
"Yetb," lithped the smalleth one, while
tho other one stared.
"Well, now, darlings, if you will produce
your primer I will see to what proficiency
you havo attained. Oan you tell
me what that letter is?"
"I don't know."
Don't you dear? Well, now, listen to
me, and I will indicate in a lucid manner
tho formula, by which you will never fail
to recognize it. It is the first letter of
the alphabet in most of the known languages.
It is naturally tho first letter be
cause it represents tho first or most infantile
of sounds that uttered by the mere
opening of the mouth without restraint.
To fix it thoroughly remember that it is

"Yes, dears; and now wo will go and

. "Is there a left-handed barber in "this
shop?" asked a man as he walked into a
tonsorial establishment on Grand Avenue
early in the week.
"We have one, sir. Take a chair."
A reporter watched the strange customer
as the left-handed knight of the brush
scraped his chin, but could not discover
anything different from the manipulation
of a right-handed man, but there was just
the same, and here it is:
"You see," said the boss barber, "when
a man is shaved all the time by a right-handed,
barber, the beard is pushed over
toward the right and when it grows out
it looks like a lopsided mop. The left-handed
barber counteracts this tendency,
and the roots are directed the way they
should go. A left-handed barber is a new
wrinkle, but he is a good thing to have in
Yesterday two blacksmiths were conversing
in a south-side saloon on the relative
abilities of two helpers.
"Jim is a good enough man," said one,
but he can't use his left hand."
"You Bee," said the speaker in response
to the reporter's query, '-blacksmith's helpers
have to stand on both sides of the
forge, and while one strikes right-handed,
the other hits with the left If a man can't
hit straight with his left he's no good."

"English Spoboa Here."
Tibbitts tried to worry ono of these Parisian
salesmen and for once succeeded. He
stopped the party promenading with him on
tho Boulovard des Italiens at a jeweler's, who
displayed in hiB window tho legend, "English
Bpokcn." The "English Bpoken" in the
shops is good enough, as a rule, to explain
tho nature and quality of the goods and that
is all. Further the English-speaking
salesman has no more idea of English than
ho has of Ashanteo. Tibbitts marched boldly
in and the English speaking man appeared. He
waB) a well-preserved, bald-headed man of 50,
and at him Tibbitts went.
