Legacy Has Grown.
A Wcdnesbiiry (England! resident

provide annually on St. Thomas' day
three gowns and three coats to Indi
gent persons of the parb h. Following
the custom of the tlmea the money
was invested in land (In this case in
minerals), and the original legacy has
Increased In value to $30,000. Instead
of the three gowns and the three coats
the charity commissioners who admin
ister the funds are able to present
200 gowns and sixty coats.

HOUSTON COULD ACT FRENCH.
How Famous Governor of Texas Re
ceived French Minister.
Represcnlative Dudley Woolen wis
telling Hen. Sam Houston stories re
cently, says the Washington post. He
pointed out that France was tho tlrst
nation to rccounizo the Texan repub
lic. A Minister was sent to tho capi
tal, which was then Houston. The
minister knew no English and Presi
dent Houston could speak nothing but
Cherokee and Enlhih. An Inter
preter wan sent for. When ne arrived
tho minister had his first audience
with President Houston. Tho minis
ter come in, bowing low and sweeping
the floor with his t hapcan. He made
a dozen of these flourishes. President
Houston watched him closely, and
when it was time for him to respond
he made ten or twelve of the moat
profound bows, each time sweeping
tho floor with his cocked hat. Then
turning to the Interpreter Houston
said: "Tell the Frenchman that If I
can't speak French I can act French."
ALMOST KNOCKED OUT TILLMAN.
South Carolina Senator Badly Stag
gered for a Moment.
Senator Tillman was once sent by
the Democratic Congressional Com
mittee out to Kentucky to orate for
the ticket. The first speech he made
there up to a certain point was a great
success. He spoko of the necessity
of electing Incorruptible men to Con
gress, "such as the Democracy of this
district has chosen to represent the
people at Washington." Just at this
moment somo one In the crowd inter
rupted with: "Would Dr. Claherty
sell out?" "What'B that?" asked Till
man, somewhat riled at this break In
his train of thoughts. "Would Dr.
; Claherty sell out?" repeated the ques
I lloner. "And who tho blazes la Dr.
! Claherty?" asked Tillman. "He's the
i man you're asking ua to vote for,"
came the prompt response. The Sen
I ator was stunned, and could only blurt
; out: "I never heard of him before."
The Progress of Japan.
There are In Japan twenty-eight
natives of the country who have been
students at the University of Penn
sylvania and several of them have
receutly met In Toklo and formed an
alumni association. One of them
, writes: "The name Is rather odd to
you. We call It In Japanese 'The
' Same Window Society of tbe Unlver-
slty of Pennsylvania.' That means
we have once studied by tlm ame
window. Then we h ;b no president
of the society; we are too democratic
maybe too much Americanized, I
fear. But the members are too few
to need it. Only I serve the society
as the secretary and treasurer and
everything." He slgna himself "Sada
A WHITE HOUSE RECEPTION.

warrior, and several members of his

ASTOR MAY ENTER POLITICS.
Rumor That Ex-American Seeks Elec
tion to Parliament.
A London correspondent learns
"from authoritative sources that Wil
liam Waldorf Astor is likely to be a
parliamentary candidate for a London
constituency at tho next general elec
tion." He Is said to have been ap
proached more than one on this sub
ject before, but has held back becauso
he feared defeat. He was waited Upon
recently by un Influential imputation
and without giving tlefinltf, promise
said he would give the matter serious
consideration. There Is also strong
probability tl:af Neil Primrose, young
eRt son of the Earl of Rosehery, may
be chosen member of Parliament for
Midlothian, the constituency which
was once rcpivrcntoi by Gladstone.

Leather Lasts Only 15 Years.
A very striking instance of the tie
terieratirt:! of leather produced under
coimI. turns (ieiniii liiii- quicker tanning
by use of various cliemicals. thus de
creasing the durability of tho mate
rial, is afforded by the tact that the
ISritish .V.useui.i expends $20,000 a
tear in reliiiitling books in leather.
Modern leather is widely different
from the materia! produced by what
is now regarded as an effete process.
Its life being limited to 15 years. In
the search for cheaper anil quicker
processes of making leather, large
quantities of sulphuric acid are used,
and this chemical In combination with
others, causes the materia! to decom
pose rapidly in the course of a few
years. Stray Stories.
And Once He Called Her "Angel!"
A Missouri editor whose wife liTk
strong woman suffragist has sprung
the following on his readers: "Rock
a-bye, baby, your mamma Is gone;
she's at Hie caucus and will be there
till dawn; she wore pap's troustirs
and In them looked queer; so hush
aby, baby, your papa Is here. Rock-a-bye,
baby your mamma's a terror,
Fhe's run three conventions declared
for three fellows; she's great on the
straddle, way up tin a vote, so hush-a
by, baby, your papa's the 'goat.'
Rock a bye. baby, the dishes are
clean, papa's done scrubbing and put
on the beans; your mamma Is late,
seems always to lag, but heaven help
pap if she comes home with a 'Jag.'"..
Cannot Use Hit Own Cara.
P. A. B. Widener, the Philadelphia
traction magnate, controls thousands
of miles of steel railroad In America,
but he cannot ride In a trolley car
without suuering from an exact Imi
tation of seasickness. Once he made
a desperate effort to overcome tbla
weakness. Accompanied by W. I.. CI
kins, his partner, he went for a
twelve-mile ride and stuck at It until
the trip was ended. By that time he
was in a state of complete collapse.
He came back on the ateam railroad
and has not ventured on a trolley car
Owner of Dred Scot Dead.
Mrs. Irene Sanford Chaffee is dead
at Sprlnsfleld, Mass., aged 88. Mra.
Chaffee, who came of a leading Vir
ginia family, once owned the famous
slave Dred Scot. It was In a case
involving his liberty that the United
States supreme court decided that a
negro, free or slave, had no rights
before the law. Mrs. Chaffee, though
not actually an abolitionist, was al
ways in sympathy with the colored
man. Her ownership of Scot was an
accident and after the decision named
had been rendered she freed the man.
For Seeing Under the Sea.
Signor Pino, an Italian engineer,
has Invented An apparatus called a
hydroscope, which, he clalniB, enables
a pel son to see the bed of the sea at
a depth of 2M to 5U0 yards with a
range of vision several thousand
square yards. Tho Inventor asserts
that the apparatus is adapted to be
used on ships and will enable the
captain to see submerged rocks and
reefs frttm the main deck. The value
of the apparatus. If the claim Is well
based, can very readily be understood.
