A SOUND SLEEPER.
Tb. Extraordinary Incident Related by a
"Yes, I keep a hotel down in the
country," said a fat, good-natured pas
senger, who told stories and ninnched
apples at tho same time. "Lots of
commercial travelers stop at my place,
and I never had any trouble with them.
They arc all gentlemanly fellows at
least, that's the resnlt of my experi
ence. The only thing I ever had occur
in my honso in any way resembling
trouble was last January, when Gus

getting me awake, but if I don't catch
that 5:30 train I'll sue you for dam

too. Bet I've lost the sale of 50,000

sleeping too late or by porters failing
to get me up for tho train, and so al

my trade away. Mind, now, I'm to go

porter had mado one or two failures,
and I knew if he broke down on Hen

more I thought about it the more it
worncd me, and finally I decided to
stay up that night myself. It was lucky

found it no easy job. Happing on the
door was no good, and I had to use
my pass-key and go in and shake him
up. The more 1 shook it seemed to
me the sounder he slept. I jumped on
him, pulled the covers off, rolled him
on the floor, threw cold water in his
face, and came near throwing him out
the window, but it was all useless. He
slept right straight along as if a sum
mer stillness reigned supreme. Just
then I heard the 'bus driving up the
street to get passengers for 'the 5:30
train, and I became desperate. Calling
the porter, I slipped Benson's panta
loons on him, put on his vest, coat,
collar, hat and every thing, and car
ried him down stairs. Then we lifted
him into the 'bus, got his grips, drove
him to the station, bought him a ticket,
stuck it into his hat-band, and when
tho train came carried him in, dumped
him with his baggage into a scat and
left him sleeping sweetly. I was de
termined to save that hundred dollars
and tho reputation of my house if I
had to kill him and express his body."
"Did lie rouse up and stav bv the

"No! he slept all the way to Toledo
and was fired by his employers for
doing it. Rather tough on him, but I
did my duty. When down my way

THE FOREIGN LEGION.
The Most Itcmarkable Ilesiuirnt of Sol
dier Errr Organized.
The foreign legion was decidedly the
most remarkable regiment in the Trench
army. Tor nearly half a century it did
as much hard fighting and marching as
any regiment in the world, and figured
in some of the most famous battle-, of
the period. It was never allowed to
enjoy any rest, and when not fighting
or inarching it was orking. The regi
ment has done as much to build i :i
nourishing colony in Algeria as to win
battles for France, and the roads and
other public works which have trans
formed a wilderness created by Moslem
sloth and barbarism into a rich garden
arc largely the work of its sturdy
hands. Notwithstanding its life of con
stant privation, bad pay and poor food,
the regiment attracted men from c err
comer of Europe. They were of ail
races and nations and represented
every grade of social life. There were
among them political refugees, social
outcasts, hard cases, men of refine
ment bowed down by misfortune, dis
graced officers, impoverished "nobles"
and bright youths full of soldierly
spirit, drawn thither by the glamour
of the rjrench name or seeking a life
of adventure. Most of the officers and
a sprinkling among the ranks were
Frenchmen, but the presence of hun
dreds of Belgians, French-speaking
Swiss and Germans from near tho
Rhine gao the regiment the appear
ance of being less French than foreign.
Yet this heterogeneous gathering of
men of different races, speaking va
rious languages, held together only by
tho bond of discipline and love for sol
diering, had an esprit dc corjts as strong
as that of any regiment in any Kuro
pean army and was just as proud of its
record. The regiment played a con
spicuous part in tho conquest of Al
geria and tho suppression of the insur
rections r.hich followed it, gave a good
account of itself in the Crimea, won
fresh lanrels at Magenta, came out of
the inglorious Mexican adventure with
out loss of prestige, and bv the exam
ple of its courage and discipline helped
to inspire conlldcncc and steadiness
In the raw levies with which Gambctta
vainly sought to stem the torrent of
invasion ahcr the disasters of Sedan
Many soldiers of the legion havo
fettled down in Algeria, obtaining
free grants of land, and make good
colonists. The population is very
mixed, and has some of the best ele
ments of the French, German, Span
ish and Italiau races. The country
has a most fertile soil, although there
is a scarcity of water, which is gradu
ally being "remedied, and for much of
its prosperity the outcasts and adven
turers from every land who formed
the foreign legion have prepared the
wav bv hard work and harder fighting.

PROGRESS OF INDIA.
The Moral and Material (ironrth of Rn
Elatid' 3lot Valuable VoeIon.
The English people arc justly proud
of their great empire of India, which
was completed in the last century by
the prowess of their amis, and has
since made wonderful progress in civ
ilization by the wisdom of their laws
and government. India, indeed, with
its two hundred and forty million peo
ple, is the proudest of England's many
distant possessions. The millions of
money and many thousands of soldier
lives which Great liritain has spent in
holding and defending it, attest tho
value which she attaches to retaining
it as a dominion of the crown. In re
cent years, the efforts of tho English
Governor-General of India have been
directed, more energetically than ever
before, to the material, political and
social improvement of the swarming
native races subject to their rule. No
longer is it the British policy to govern
them simply with iron hand, holding
them as a subject people, shutting
them out from education, and from all
share in the affairs of their own coun
try. A recent official statement gives an
interesting picture of the results of
the civilizing process which has of late
years been elevating and bettering the
condition, in all respects, oi the native
races. From this statement it appears
that the number of towns to which
are accorded the right to mamare their
own local again is xmiAls.
every year. The right "to vote for
their own local rulers is in these cases
given to natives who have a certain
amount of property; and the local
governments thus created have the
power to control the schools, measures
for health, lighting, water, making of
streets, police, and erecting of public
bondings. The result of thus giving
OC' ' 7 ...
tne natives me power to manage their
local affairs is seen in the steady in
crease of schools, in a decrease of ill
ness and death, in better roads, in the
economy with which the towns are
administered, and in a marked dimin- i
ution of crime. JIanv of the crimes
peculiar to Hindoo custom and charac
ter arc ceasing to be committed.
With this political improvement,
the material prosperity of India is, on
the whole, on the increase. The prob
ability of the recurrence of those hor
rible famines which, in the past, have
3ie iammes wnicn, in me past, nave
read terrible desolation through vast
areas of India, becomes happily more
remote from year to year. This is due
in part to tho growth o: me ranway
system, in part to the more general
cultivation of the soil, and in part to
the more intelligent methods of pre
vention employed. The soil of India
yields a large variety of valuable pro
ducts. The growth of coffee is declin
ing; but that of tea is becoming con
stantly larger. In nine years, the
value of the tea grown in India has
more than doubled. Cotton is raised
in India on over fourteen millions of
acres. Perhaps, in time, India will be
a formidable rival of our own Southern
States, in the production of this staple
which may be said to clothe mankind
Wheat is grown on twenty-six millions,
of acres; and the Indian forests, with"
their strong and aromatic woods, are a
source of very considerable profit. In
manufactures, India is making percep
tible progress, especially in the cotton,
jute and brewing industries. New cot
ton mills are being built and put in
operation in various parts of the em
pire. It is noteworthy that the number of
newspapers in the native tongues is
rapidly increasing. These papers dis
cuss all matters with great freedom.
since the once scerc restrictions on
the press have been much relaxed in
recent years. It is a fact worth men
tioning that Shakespeare's plays have
recently been translated into several of
the Hindoo dialects. India, under
English rule, is thus fast becoming
what even Europeans would call a
really civilized state. In due time, no
doubt, the English rule will disappear,
and the empire will become free and
self-governing. But it will always be
a majestic monument to the English
genius for planting good government
in remote regions and among strange
peoples. Youth's Companion.
AN AID TO SCIENCE.
now Photography Proves an Addition to
the Strength of Iluman Vltion.
The aid of photography to the study
of certain departments of science is
considerable, and in astronomy, for ex
ample, it is not limited to the easy
preparation of stellar charts. In Jules
Verne's story of the mysterious island
the Pacific, he has his castaways manu
facture a photographic apparatus. In
looking at tho negative of a view they
discover tho picture of a vessel on tho
horizon which was not seen by tho
naked eye. This is the expression of a
well-known fact that a negative may
reveal leatures otherwise invisible.
The "proof of a photographic portrait
shows the irregularities of the skin,
shows freckles that arc not so promi
nent to the eye in the subject ana so
portraits need to be retouched. In
the same way photographs of the
heavens'reveal stars and other objects
never observed before. Tor example, in
the negative of a part of tho Pleiades
taken at Paris, was seen a faint nebula
that was unknown to astronomers. After
the photographers called attention to
it, there was no difficulty hi making
it out with a large telescope and even
one of moderate power. A new varia
ble star near this nebula was also dis
covered by the photograph.
In the study of the anatomy of tho
brain, the photographic process has
been of great value. In the negatives
of microscopic photographs of tho
brain tissues are revealed many feat
ures which the microscope itself does
not show. Some of these revelations
do not make an impression in tho
prints, even though they may be quito
plain in the negatives." Others, too,
are seen in the process of developing
the negative, but which disappear
jnder tho action of the developing
fluid before the negative is complete.
Photography is thus a stronger eye
than the telescope and the microscope,
which has proved such an addition to
the strength of nature's inefficient or
gans of visions. MHicaules Sentinel.
The Evolution of Language and Kwntual
Sunival or the iltteit.
I como now to speak of the struggle
for existence which is constantly going
on between languages geographically
near to one another and between differ
ent dialects of the same language.
Unless one of tho idioms is specially
favored in tho struggle by political
circumstances, it is evident that the
one which is most advanced in evoln
tion will gain upon those which are
less advanced: this fact can bo estab
lished by many examples. Thus, in
the territory which is now France,
Latin, introduced into Gaul by a rela
tively small number of persons, shortly
surpassed the Celtic dialects. The
French language is wholly Latin, hav
ing retained from the Celtic only a few
recollections in its vocabulary; but,
when the Germans established them
selves in a large part of Gaul, instead
of giving their language to the con
quered population, they abandoned it
in the end and adopted the nco-Latin,
which afterward became French; and
the French language is no more Ger
manic than it is Celtic. Natural selec
tion has caused the disappearance of a
considerable number of idioms. Lan
guages which come into conflict arc
like groups of animals that have to
struggle with one another for exist
ence. They must gain upon their com
petitors, or resign themselves to disap
pear before them. Just as, in the con
test for life and development, the best
armed races finally prevail over those
which are less favored, so languages
which arc best served by their own ap
titudes and by external circumstances
prevail over" those whose evolutive
force is less considerable, and over
those which historical conditions havo
less well prcnared for tho combat. In
France, the trench, the ancient languo
iToil gradually supplanted the langue
A'oc, tho Corsican, the Breton, the
Flemish and tho Basque In the Brit
ish Islands, English eclipsed the Celtic
languages, Irish. Scotch, Manx and
Gaelic, and will shortly have sup
planted the Cornish. "German has
overcome a number of Slavic idioms.
Another kind of selection is going
on within the language itself with
reference to tho uso of particular
forms and words. In reference to this,
the study of dialects is of great inter-1
est. Dialects should sot be regarded!
as degenerate conditions of literary
languages. The?e languages arosim-j
fdy fortunate dialects, whose rival dia-1
ects have been less favored. We are
constantly meeting in dialects forma
and words which their sister literary J
languages have not preserved; and
this fact gives dialects an important
filace in the study of natural history oi

' since all the discoverers of the great
gold mines in the United States, with
but few exceptions, have, as the saying
goes, "died with their boots on." Of

not long ago from an overdose of mor-
?hine administered by his own hand.
'wo years previous to his death he was
worth a million or so, but he died a
pauper and almost without a friend.

Thomas Page Comstock died a beg
gar in a strange land. "Old Pancake,"
as he was known in the mining camps,
committed suicide at Bozeman, Mon.,
on September 27, 1870. by shooting
himself. He was the leader of the
f.tmous iSig Horn expedition that was
sent out by Nevada capitalists in search
of tho Lost Cabin mines, supposed to be
somewhere among tho Big Horn moun
tains. I he expedition was a failure,
and Comstock. whether from disap
pointment or from some other cause,
while encamped near Bozeman, drove
a pistol-ball through his head and died
instantly. He was buried there, and
his grave is unmarked and unknown.
Near the wild spot where twelve
years before the hidden treasure of
Alder Gulch was first revealed to him,
William I'.iirwcathcr was laid down to
rest. Like poor "Old Pancake," this
erratic soul stranded on the shoals of
dissipation, although each in his day
had turned a key the one silver, the
other golden which unlocked millions
for others but nothing for themselves.
William Farrel, who "struck" Meadow
Lake, died a victim to remorse in one
of the leading hospitals of San Fran

pectors passing and repassing his dying

others died violent deaths in ono way

teamsters, who were Plummcr's out

and Henri1 Plummcr were hauled up
by vigilantes and strung up without the
delay and formality of a trial. Plum
mcr was a great rascal. In the early
Ia3's of the mining camps of Montana,
Plummer was elected sheriff of the
caiup about Virginia City. He was the
first locator of the rich ground abont
Virginia City, but thought he could
make more money and quicker, too, by
taking what was already mined than
by laboring in the gulch day after day
and getting it by hard, honest toil. But
he was tripped up at last and died a
cringing, miserable coward, on the
