and tor the sake of the second mate,

So saying, he marched up the steps,
gave an authoritative rap with the bur

As u matter of course he was immedi

where a largo party bad already assem

full, no notice was at lirst taken of bis
intrusion, and half-a-dozen people were
laughing at his ban tnoti before the host
discovered the niietake. Affecting uot
to observe the visible embarrasment of
the latter, and ingeniously avoiding the
the opportunity for explanation, Hook
rattled on till he husl attracted the great

him, and some considerable time elapsed
ere the old gemlemna was able to

Prohibition Impuacticammtv. An Asli-
luud lady baa secured $1,150 dununres aaiust
saloon keeper, under lliu Adair Liquor Law.
There are men who call themselves
Prohibitionists, who say the Adair law is
nullity. Why it is a nullity in some
places is because these complainants have
not the nerve to have the law enforced.
They want some sort of a self-acting stat
ute involving the principle of perpetual
motion, that they may be excused from
the labor of turning the crank. The in
coming Legislature, with a Democratic
majority of fifteen on joint ballot,
will, of course, so modify the Adair law,
the best temperance act ever passed, as
render it wholly useless. The Repub
licans iu the Legislature need not worry
the question, but should allow those
elected on the Prohibition ticket to fight
out with the party which they have
placed in power by their desertion of
the only practical and consistent tem-
in the State.
W. R. Chron.
As some people cannot fathom the
meaning of the term local enterprise, a
cotcmporiiry defines it as follows for
their benefit. It is just this: If you can
think of anything that can be done to
beautify or build up your town, go and
it; don't tight the laying of a new
side walk because you have to pay your
share of the expenses; keep your capital
home; patronize home industries; help
your own merchauts to sell more, so that
they may sell cheaper; always get your
work done in your town if possible; sub
scribe and pay for county papers, don't
steal or borrow tho reading ot them. If
you follow these suggestions, aud if
your town docs not improve and build
up, it will uot be your fault.

dure I' reneh co'ikinir and French living
until they can atnnd it no longer, and
then start "off on their own hook."
During the five weeks we have been at
a French fieion two families have id
ready left and gone to housekeeping,
nnd a third is now preparing to follow
their example. They are here t'"r the
education of their children, atid pro
ttosinn; to remain a couple of years, soon
discovered that it would be impossible
to endure French living. Still, this
house has th reputation of keeping the
lict table in Paris, but the manner in
erviricf the dihes is so unreasonable
that the enjoyment of the food is de
stroyed. Think f siirviiir roat beef
without potatoes or vegetables, and,
when it is masticated, havinz peas or
beans, that would have been so delight
ful to eat with it, served separately.
Then the deerts are always a melange
of some kind, so mixed that it is im
possible to tell what you are eating. A
lady remarked nt the table to-day that
sho ate every thing mechanically, with
out a thought a t' what it was. con
tenting herself with the reflecimi that
she would relish home food better when
she got there. "Well, mother," re
sponded a sharp-witted daughter at her
side, who hail probably been reading
Mark Tvain, "you can't expect to en
ior sweet potatoes and hot corn with
j 0 lael Angelo and AV orth. the cr-M.-,-

Breakfast is served in the rooms to
each bonrder ns soon as it is called for,
consisting of coffee and bread and but
ter. At 12 o'clock n lunch is served, of
three ir four separate course, generally
fried eggs, and then beefsteak or veal
ntlet, and fruit, Hfter all of which is
disposed of coffee is served. Dinner is
eadv at 6 o clock, requiring an hour and
i half to dispose of it, each article beiug
served separately, and the plates chang
ed, the vegetables invariable following
the meat, but never with it. The food
is all good enough, and much more
abundant than at the hotel tables, and
would be very palatable if not served
up in this nonsensical way. There is
also abundance of wine at both lunch
nnd dinner. "How I long to get home
to enjoy a good square meal," is the con
stant exclamation of the American wan
derers. We must not neglect to add
that the parties who have gone to house
keeping since our Sojourn here reported
progress and are delighted with their
experience, viz; Muffins, waffles, and
flannel cakes, for breakfast, with beef
steak and ham and eggs: dinner at two
o'clock, with roast chicken and boiled
ham, potatoes, pe'is, nnd Baltimore pearl
hominy, all spread out on the table at
once, to the horror of the French cooks
nnd servants; supper nt 8 o'clock, with
coffee, cold chicken, and hot rolls from
the Boston bakery on Boulcrard Mal

more than a hundred Americans from
the Grand and other hotels in the vicin
ity dine there daily. They have literary
turned this once quiet boarding-house
into a refectory, much to the discomfort
of home guests. We should not won
der if some of these American ladies
who have just started housekeeping on
a small scale, should ultimately develop
into American boarding house keepers,
and revolutionize this mode of eating in
all these establishments. To an Amer
ican it seems contrary to reason and
common sense to be eating peas or beans
as a separate dish and meats without
vegetables. Their guests are all Amer
icans or Kuglish, atid the sooner the rev
olution is commenced the better.
Birth flan Iceberg.
A glacier is a moving river
of ice, flowing on and on to the sea, less
rapidly than the uncongealed streams,
but as surely. No tide ascends to check
its current, or to mar the purity of its
waters; high np, it moves steadily along
till it teaches its mouth. There, on the
rockv cliff it pauses, presenting to the
eye a mass of ice, deep-blue iu fissures,
mutating iu its fantastic forms every
style of architecture apparently a crys
tal city. Such an one doubtless met the
bewilticred eyes of Brendan, centuries
ago, as in his coracle he skimmed over
the northern seas. Such was the scene
that met the eves of the Panther's crew
iu tho Fiord ot Erie the Red, at the ex
tremity of Smith's Strait.
Masses began to detach themselves
and descend to the sea, forming icebergs
of various sizes, and sending the spray
in clouds heavenward. At the very end
of the glacier rose a tower two hundred
feet high, and standing boldly out.
Suddenly, as if the rock had yielded
beneath it, the whole city-like mass sank
grandly down, dividing into immense
strata as it fell. The spectators stood
petrified on the Panther's deck and the
opposite shore, when the whole scene
was wrapped in mist, and iu tho half
light came the flash of falling ice.
Suddenly, nmid the din, they beheld a
blue mass emerge from the mist, at first
slowly, then with a sudden bound.
Dashing aside the clouds of foam and
vapor, an immense wave, curving graud
ly in its semicircular sweep toward the
heavens, rose, gathering in volume. It
upheaved the Panther, held it for a mo
ment on its crest, and then shot it toward

it be true or false; the whisper is sowu
transformed into a storm. A sudden ran
is made upon the bank; and then upon
other banks, until the whole community
is iu a IVruicnt of excitement. If the
banks have facilities lor a prompt con-v
version of securities into cash, the storm
may blow uver; but if distrust is wide
spread, mouey is locked up or held for

perfectly sound arc driven by sheer neces

stamps each are printed each working
day. The number of stamps used an
nually is about 050,000,000, and their
average value is $18,000,000. To pro

stamps are counted and recounted ten
or twelve tunes, registered, receipted
for, and counted again, until, what with
handling and gumming, they lose their
original freshness, and have to be pol
ished up in a hydaulic press. They are
distributed by mail to about 35,000 post
offices iu the United States, aud orders
are received daily for about 30,000,000
stamps. A Government agent gives his
receipt for the stamps, and obtaius cor
