" Give mo the luxuries of llfo," said a witty
American author and diplomat, " and I will
do without tho necessities."
So thinks many a poor man of his tobaooo.
So think business men of tho telephone.
Tho policy of tho monopoly in treating
theno indispensable means of communica
tion as " luxuries," is one that the Legisla
ture should forbid.
An instrument that costs less than a dol

; We dont see so many diamonds as we think
nowadays. Uhlnratonei and paate aro taking
their places off aa well aa on the stage. There are
nnmliers of women In New York known to possess
Jewels worth thousands of dollars, tbe cut, setting
and appearance of which are perfectly familiar to
aoclety people, to thlovca and to a great many peo
ple who cannot be rockoned In either of these
classes. These gems aro a regular part of thn en
ter! ilnment guaranteed to the purchaser of an
opera ticket, and tho holder of the sarno would
feel that Implied contract bad been violated If
their wearers stayed at home or neglected to
spread a travelling show-window over their velvet
corsages In the great gold casket of the auditor

customary bench show of prlzo dames, damsels
and beaux. Aud yet the gems not tho women
are frequently absent when we tnlnk them there.

"All rhlnestones," I was told. "There Is a
new method of cutting and mounting them whloh
bring out greater brilliancy and makes It possi
ble to dispense with the solid filling at the back,
which used to distinguish the atones at once from
real gems. These are safer things to wear. They
relieve the mind from anxiety about losing or
stealing, and so ladles are having duplicates of
tho comenta of their Jewel caaea made up In rhlne
stones and the genuine articles locked away from
danger In safe deposit vaults. It takes more than
n casual examination to detect the difference, and
so the poor thief haa a hard time. "

Tho preparations thot wore going on so
actively wero for tho first annual exhibition
of tho'Now York Poultry Exchango, which
began to-day and will last until the 21st of
this month. Tho association is a duly incor
porated stock company, whoso object is to
advanco tho intereets of poultry and poultry
mon. It has a capital of $10,000, and wishes
to havo a membership made up from ovcry
Stnte and Territory in tho Union.
Madison Squnro Gordon has had so many
kinds of Bhows in it that it can't tell whether
it is a monagerlo or an opora-houso. Long
tables are covorcd with wire cages, in which
the fanciest of fowls exhibit their points.
Tho entries aro numerous and varied. Hens,
ducks, pigeons, swans, pot cots, pet docs,
turkeys, pheasants, owls, guinea pigs, rab
bits, squirrels and the like will havo place in
the week's show.
Tho poultry include Aslatio, American,
Spanish, Hamburg, Polish, Dorkings,
French, game, bantams and a miscellaneous
class. Each gonus in this gallinaceous con
gress embraces a dozen species.
Tho reporter's curiosity was awnkened by
mention of somo " Golden-laced Wyan
dottos," thoy wero such a tony named fowl,
but ho did not striko anything in tho Wynn
dotto lino. A oago full of golden pheasants
was some compensation,
" That is a good sot," ho said, pointing to
a family group of five enormous creatures.
" Vcs," said an aged poulterer vith groat
calm, "they'ro porty chfokens."
Chickens 1 A foot and a half high and
twonty-flvo pounds if thoy vieighod any
thing. The father of thoso little creatures
was n perfect Goliath, and wore very full
brown-feathor trowsers, a largo bustle and
two little feather dusters for rosettes. His
spurs wore as big as acorns. Ho was a dandy.
Fivo bronzed turkoys thrust their heads in
nn agitated way out from thoir cages as the
roportor passed by. One weighed only forty
pounds. One of his " drumsticks " would
supply a family of children with a good
Thanksgiving dinner. Ono of tho turkeys

movements of a man who was trying to cor

tho trail, bocauso tho hon was only three
yards off. But that was tho distance sho
liked to bo. Sho was a modest, virtuous hen,
and made her frantic follower koep his dis

tho hen thrust hor left leg in tho man's right
hand. He had tho key to the combination.

tho aquatio beasts to swim around in without

wero fresh from a bath.
Thero will be soveral curiosities. Tho

tigor cat, a Persian cat sent over from tho
Blmh's dominion, and raro Egyptian geese.
Ono class of hen is the "Downy." They
havo a hairy sort of down Instead of feathors,
and no wings to speak of, so when they oomo
to a two-foot fence, they can't fly over it, but
havo to tako a stepladder.
