make old TJrsus Major smile just say "Pea
nuts" In a loud, clear voice within a latuoin
or two of his willtnc ear. If you wish to
gee the nearest approach to amiability
which the black bear of the New York Zoo
is able to assume just insert a nice fat goober
within pawinc distance of the rough old
fellow. You touch the peanut, the bear
will do the rest.
There is a great deal cf human nature in
the blc care, and I somet'uies wonder that 1
tome of the people who hnd so much fun
watching the antics of the bears do not for
get that they arc not looking in a mirror.
It is the sort of nature which we often see in
Ihe street cars and which is so near-sighted
But the she bear did. She learned then if she
never did before, how much more blessed it
is to give April fools thau to receive them.
For a moment she paused, as if in sad
reflection. Then she turned npou that bad,
bad boy such a look ot pained surprise that,
it he hnd not been very bad, must have
filled him with remorse. Tears rn out of
her little eyes and saliva trickled outfof

see how human the bears can be invest a
nickel in a bag of peanuts and indulge
them in a little game of grab.
A Keen Eye for the Dainties.
The big he bear and the little she bear
and all of the rest of the bears will form in
line before you and look as friendly as if
they really thought something of yon.
Four black muzzles will protrude between
the bars, and four pairs of little eyes will
beg jut as hard as eyes can do it. How
keenly those eyes will watch the peanuts,

tongne with her paw, but the misery re
mained. "With a wild howl of pain she took

minutes that cage seemed to be full of fly

different places lit once.
Satisfied "With Themselves.
Outside of your capabilities in the peanut
line the bears do not seem to take any in
terest in you. They are the most conceited
lot of egotists in the Zoo, and apnear to
find themselves all Fufficient for their own
amusement. Now and then you will find a
lion or tiger eyeing you with speculative
glance, as if you were a sweet morsel to be
rolled under the tongue, but the bears have
eyes only lor what you may bring in your
hands or pockets. Now and then one will
indulge in greased pole climbing and
Japanese balancing, but it is not done ap
parently so much for your edification as
tor the acrobat's own amusement. He does
not look for applause nor care f or criticism,
and he lets you understand the fact without
I sometimes think that the Polar bear
wonld like a chop or a cutlet from my
sacred person, but I may be mistaken about
it. I have certainly seen specnlation in

of his own dear Greenland home and the iat
young seah on which he nsed to sup.

man folks do sometimes wbeu they see their
fellows raking in the pot.
Then place a peanut on the dividing line
between the paws of the lady Jbear and the
first gentleman bear. Hoitv' toltv, what a
time there will be ! The two black faces
will look yearningly at the morsel, and the
little eyes will fairly roll as they measure
the distance and irr to determine which

will make a hesitating and lurtive pass at

paw and claw it toward her. The he bear

"Here, you," he will say, "return that

"I'll do nothing of the kind," replies
tne lady. "A pretty cheek jou haeto

Then follows such a snarling and snap
ping and showing ot teeth as you never

duce him to the best society and try in
every way to improve his manners, but in
the end you will have what you started
with a plain, rude American bear without
a redeeming trait, saving his grease and
hide. As a terrible example to cross men

In these days of so much talk of Tam
many Hall one often hears ot the "Tam
many King." The Tammany Bing was a
conspiracy of the leaders of Tammany Hall,
then one of the Democratic organizations of
Jfew York City, to plunder the city by
means of overcharges on account of the new
county Court House. The Tammany So-'
ciety is an old political organization in
."Sen York. William Marcy Tweed was the
leader of the society, and bv careful manip
ulation ho had obtained from the Legisla
ture a charter for the city, conferring great
power upon the city officials. The chief
officers of the city government were his as
sociates; he himself was Commissioner of
Public i Works, and his intimate associates
filled other high municipal offices and occu
pied seats ou the bench ot the Supreme
The robbery was done by means of over
charges on the part of the contractors,
which overcharges were divided among the
members of the ring. The Court House,
which could have been built for 53,000,000,
cost the city 512,000,000, and much other
work was done in the same way, so that the
city debt was increased from about 573,000,
000 in 1869 to 5117,000,000 in 1870. One of
the ring, becoming dissatisfied with his
share of the plunder, disclosed the con
spiracy to the "Sen York Timet in the sum
mer of 1871. The result was the downfall
of the ring, the flight of several of the
members, the arrest, conviction, imprison
ment, escape, recapture and "death of
Tweed, the death ot others, the removal
from the bench of three judges, and in the
end the purification of politics.
What Is money? Pateesojt.
John Stuart Mill defines it as "a mere
contrivance for facilitating exchanges," a
definition followed by another British
writer, Jevons, in his book, "Money and
the Mechanism of Exchange." .Money is
defined usually as a "measure of value;" it
is something by the possession or surrender
of which we measure the value to us ot
other articles. It need not be gold or sil
ver. 'In Homer 8 times, oxen were money;
the Abyssinians used salt; the natives of
the West Coast of Africa used sea shells;
the North American Indians used shells;
the early settles in Virginia used tobacco;
Marco Polo says that the Chinese used
paper not paper redeemable in coin, but
paper, made valuable by the Great Khan's
orders. So, really, money is anything that
is generally accepted as of value, which
serves to do away with trading "in kind"
or barter; it makes no difference whatits
nature is, so long as it is something which
is ot value to the people at large.

The determination here expressed is cer
tainly to be commended. Blackstone says
every citizen should make it his business to
become familiar with at least the underly
ing principles of the la.-of his land. And
this suggests that Blackstone is about as good
a work as "U. G. B." could select for his
first reading. The only objection is that
the work contains much that is obsolete.
Along with it should he read some good
American notes, say those of Judge Shars
wood, who was one of Pcnnvslvania's great
est jurists. To read Kent's Commentaries
is an allopathic prescriptiou, as it is put up
in four big volumes; but in it will be found
references and citations that will suggest a
course of light reading. There are works
of later date, written for the exact object the
correspondent has in view. These are not
intended for mn who propose to make law
a life business, but for men ot leisure and
culture who recognize a weakness in this
part of their mental equipment! Any first
class book store can secure what is needed.
Is there really a mountain in Xe w Guinea,
32,000 ioethigliT S. A. D.
Probab.y not. New Guinea is not yet
thoroughly explored, and unknown mount
ains, especially mountains that have never
been 'seen, are always much higher than
those that have been measured. Look, for
instance, at the Grand Falls of Labrador,
that were measured a year ago, and de
scribed in two maznzines within a few
weeks. Two years ago they were upwards
of 2,000 feet high; w hen they were meas
ured, they were found to be about 300 feet
high. Of course It is possible that a mount
ain 32,000 feet high may exist in New
Guinea, but it isn't likely. If it did exist
itwould have to stand up rather lonely,
without any near neighbors in size; it
might do so; but hitherto all high mount
ains have been found "flocking together,"
as in the Himalayas, where there are a
dozen mountains higher than any others on
the globe, all in a small space ot territory;
and a3 in South America and Mexico.

lington had about 68,000 men and Napoleon
about 70,000. At the beginning of the bat
tle both armies occupied heights of land;
but the British remained on the defensive,
while the French, to attack, had to cross
the v.alley between the lines. The French
made five distinct attacks: 1, on the British
right, to cover the main attack; 2, on the
lelt; 3, a cavalry attack; 4, Key's cavalry
attack on the British center, when the farm
house of La Have Sainte, covering the

5, the charge ot the Imperial Guard. 'The

What was Brook Farm.one of Hawthorne's
old homes? S. S. L
Brook Farm was an industrial associa
tion, a social Utopia, composed of a num
ber of advanced thinkers, whose object was
so to distribute manual labor as to give the
members time for intellectual culture. It
was'located in West Eoxbury, near Boston;
it began in 1841, and came to an end by the
agreement ot "all concerned" in 1846.
George Kipley was the leader of the com
munity; others in it besides Hawthorne
were "Margaret Fuller, Bronson AJcott,
Thorcau, Charles A. Dana, George Villiam
Curtis, FUery Channing, as well as others
whose names are famous in American liter
ature. Every member worked on the farm
for the common good; the plan was excel
lent on paper, but did not work well in
practice. Some of the originators dropped
out, few recruits joined, and finally the
community was dissolved voluntarily.
Hawthorne places the scene of the
"Blitbedale Eomance" at the Farm. ,

"Panorama of the Mississippi," which he
painted himself; it occupied several years,
aud when finished was three miles long, not
merely one mile. He exhibited it in many
cities of the country and abroad. He sug
gested to General Fremont the scheme of
passing Island No. 10 in the Mississippi,
which Grant carried out; and in 18G1 paint
ed a picture, "The-Vision," from which the
'first chromo made in this country was

How many whites and how many negroes

By the bulletins of the eleventh census
(that of 1890) in 17 States there were 15,
493,323 whites and 6,944,915 negroes. The
States are Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware,
.District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia,
Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Vir
ginia. In Arkansas and Mississippi the
percentage of increase of the negroes be
tween 1880 and 1890 was greater than that
of the whites, while in Georgia the per
centages were precisely the same. In all
the other States the whites increased pro
portionately much more than the negroes.
Why were the Confederates called "John.
nies" by the Tankeesin the late war?
We find no absolute reason for the name
being applied to the Confederates; but the
Century Dictionary says that the names
John, Johnny, Jack, are applied col
loquially and familiarly to a person whose
real name is not known, or to express in
definite number.. A cognate expression 'is
"every man Jack." The Federals were
"Yankees," so that they had a nickname
already; the Confederates had no nickname,
and early in the war were hailed as
"Johnnies," in default of any more defi-nite'colloquialism.

one or two months under the impression
that because they got such quick results
and felt compaiatlvelv well that they were
permanently cured. They desire to Impress
upon such patients the fact that during tbe
warm wholesome summer season catarrh
affects a person but very little, and that as
soon as tbe severe nnd chungeuble winter
weather appears there will return again
the sumo old lound of agonizing neuralgic
headaches, stopped up condition of the
nostrils, soro nnd lriltulile throat, with
hawking and spitting and darting pains
Therefore take timely advice and renew
vour treatments, broken off in many in
stances by vacations and other similar
causes, determined to remain under treat
ment until pronounced cured by .the physi
cians. Drs. Copeland, Hall nnd Dyers have re
peatedly in these columns, and also in the
consultation room, urged the necessity for
continuous and systematic treatment in all
chionlo troubles, more particularly those of
a catarrhal nature.
