The British public and press are
highly incensed at Andrew Carnegie's
statement that it would pay England
to burn up her railroad equipment and
replace it with American models. Eu
ropean railway managers are also com
mencing to wake up to tho necessity
of contributing somewhat to the com
fort of their passengers, but unfort
unately commence where the Ameri
cans left off a dozen years ago, as is
instanced by the following extract
from an exchange ;
'"Having long recognized the in
adequacy of foot-warmers as a means
of heating railway carriages, says The
London Daily Telegraph, the direc

a fly caught on her plate. She took it

A MODERN CUPID.
E was small and
and not partic
ularly olean ;
the half of a
pair of old
ed his princi
pal and most
ment, a huge
muffler was twisted around his neck
and wound several times round his
small body before the ends finally
found a resting place inside his trous
ers ; over this muffler he wore an old
and frayed Eton jacket buttoned tight
ly across, or pinned where the but
tons were missing. An ancient pair of
women's boots, many sizes too large
and displaying a wealth of toes, com
pleted his indiscriminate attire.
His hair, whioh would apparently
have been of a vividly red hue had
there been sufficient of it to admit of
an impartial judgment os to its color,
was cropped very short. His eyes
were keen and bright, and forovoi on
the watch, probably from force of
habit or the necessity of circum
stance. He was very thin and very
active, and probably some twelve
smoky Loudon summers had passed
over his head.
I was a young and struggling doc
tor in the East End of London at the
time, with hard work and poor
patients, and my first introduction to
the boy was on account of a fierce and
deodlyjenmity which had grown up
between the youth who dusted my
surgery and carried out my medicine
and the ragged one, who was known,
by the way, as "Ginger Green"-an
appellation which surely points to a
love of color dormant in tho breasts
of the great unwashed, adverse criti
The enmity terminated in what was,
I believe, locally known as a "sorap,"
outside my surgery door, in whioh my
youthful assistant was severely
mauled. In addition fo the injnries
inflicted upon himself his basket was
knocked over in the scuffle and sev
eral bottles broken. I happened to
return at the moment of tho latter
catastrophe, and seized "Ginger" by
the collar and bore him inside, with
the object of inflicting summary chas
tisement. I had dragged him into the
surgery and dosed the door before he
fully realized his position, and then
he crouched on the floor huddled up
in a heap, with one arm put np to
shield his head.
He was such a forlorn little figure
and so very helpless that all thoughts
of punishment vanished from my
mind. I merely stood over him
awaiting the turn of events.
"Garni" he exclaimed. "Who yer
'ittin' of? I ain't done nnffink. "
"I think you hsvo done a great
deal, my young friend," I ventured
to suggest. "What do you mean by
breaking bottles and punching inoffen
sive errand boys?"
'I didn't want to break no bottles,
guv'nor. What's 'e want to go givin
me's lip for, eh? 'E's always at it."
"I regret that ho should have of
fended your deep sensibilities," I re
plied, "but who is going to pay for
That question rendered him sudden
ly silent and serious. He shuffled to
his feet, and stood there furtively
glancing round the room and hope
lessly thrusting his hands into one and
another of his ragged pockets.
"Was it much, guv'nor?" he asked,
glancing up at me wistfully.
"More than you could pay." I re
plied. "I suppose I had better send
for a policeman."
The awful nature of his situation
appeared iully to dawn upon him.
He cast one hungry glance towards
the closed door and another to the
window, then drew his ragged sleeve
across his eyes and began to cry.
"It warn't my fault, guv'nor, sw'elp
me, it warn't. I was a dobbin' 'im on
the kisser and never seed 'is bawsket,
I restrained a suddea inolination to
laughter and spoke seriously.
"What's your name ?"
"Green, guv'nor ; they calls mo Gin
"Well, Ginger," I replied, "are you
aware that those bottles of medicine
were for two people-three people, in
faot-who are very seriously ill, and
who are waiting for it?"
He became moro solemn than ever.
"Oh, lori" he exclaimed in a breath
less whisper; "willth3y pop it, guv'
"Pop it!" I echoed. "What do
"I think it's very likely,"I said, as
gravely as I could.
"Cawn'fc yer send 'em some more?"
"I might do that, but -"
"If you mix up some more, guv'nor,
and tell me where they live, I'll cut
round wiv it now-straight, I will,
I looked in some wonderment at
him ; he was so desperately in earnest.
But the end of the matter was, that I
made up the medicine afresh and, as
my own boy was still dressing his
wounds and anointing them with
maudlin tears. I gave the bottles into
the hands of Ginger, with many in
ward misgivings and many directions.
"Oh, I knows 'em," he said, listen
ing eagerly. "Billy Collins lives in
the buildings ; I seed ?is muvver go
in just now. This ole gal," indicating
another bottle, "'augs out np Angel
court ; this one lives in our 'ouse. "
"All right," 1 said. "But be quick."
"Bight you are, guv'nor." He
turned at the door and came back
again. "Ain't I to give 'em no d'rec
tions about the doses, nor nnffink?"
"Certainly not ; it's all put on the
bottles-on the labels. And come

He was oertainly very ill, but Marj
was with him almost night and day
and I went to see him as often as pos
sible, for reasons not wholly connect
ed with himself. It was on one o
those occasions that I first confess?e
my love to her ! perchance something
of her loneliness-her bravery in thai
squalid room-drew the oonfessioc
from me. Ginger was almost conval
escent then, and had, after his delir
ium, fallen into a sleep which told me
that his dangor was over.
To my surprise, Mary Esmond
shrank away from me and .covered hei
face with her hands.
"It has come at last," she said, in s
low voice, sobbing bitterly as she
spoke. "I have known that that first
mistake must cling to me forever ; 1
have known that some day I should
meet some good man who would love
me, and who could be to me all that I
could desire, and that then that mis
take should hold me back and say :
'You shall not I"
I was beside her in an instant and
my arms were about her.
"Mary, for the love of Heaven," I
said, "don't torture me like this.
What mistakes do you mean? What
mistake can you have made, at any
time, my darling-"
But she thrust mo away from her.
"I must tell yon ; you must know
now. I had thought to hide it here,
I to bury mytelf here, and live my life,

membered, perchance, for that, and
the rest forgotten. But it cannot be,
I suppose. I-I am grateful, Dr.
Richards, for all that you have said ;
I am more, much more than grateful.
But it cannot be. I-am .a married
I looked ab her incredulously, and
would have spoken, but she stopped
me gently and went on.
"When I left school I met a man
who was, to my girlish fanoy, all that;
my dreams had painted ; I ran away,
and married him. Only too soon I.
discovered th? bitter wreck I had'
made of my life. I will not dwell upon
it; suffice it that he was a coarse and
common creature, possessing no man

my way alone ; ? trained myself for
this ; I hid myself herc. He may find
me again when he wants money. That
is my story. "
In my pity and distress I took her
in my arms again, and sbo leant her
head upon my breast, and cried thero
softly for a few minutes,
It was just at that moment that,
Ginger awoke, and we were startled!
by the exclamation, in a weak voice ::
"Oh, my eye!"
Mary sprang away and busied her
self with the window curtain ; I walked)
across to the patient, who was regard

he whispered : I

nuffink;I 'aven't crabbed it, 'ave I."
Thereafter Ginger's admiration and
gratitude to his "nuss," as ho called,
her, knew no bounds. He would fol-,1
low her respectfully at a distance ; he'
neglected his precarious busiaess dis
gracefully in order to bo near her and
to perform small services for her.
One night, some months after his
illness, ho burst suddenly into my
surgery, and sank into a chair, and
regarded me with a blank expression
of terror. I saw that ho was t::ombling
in every limb.
"Gawd elp me, guv'nor," he whis
pered. "I've done it this time, an*,
no error. It's a 'anging job-that's

By degrees I got his story from him,
told in jerks.

The Oregon Dentist.
"When I was traveling through
Southern Oregon last month," said
Attorney W. W. McNair, "I found
myself in a small village and with a
large toothache. I found the local
dentist, with his whirligig engine that
resembled a small lathe, at the livery
stable clipping a horse.

" 'Want it plugged, thon. What is
it-jaw tooth or knawer?' and he tried
to force a finger that was covered with
dirt and horse hair into my mouth.
I had grown a trifle suspicious of him,
so I thought I would find out what
sort of work he did.
" 'Do you do bridge work?' I

false teeth, but she wouldn't work.

mouth as big as a hazel nut.'
"I oonclnded not to have my tooth

these birds give forth, and so weil are

A Rcmariablc Toa1.
In Surinam there is a remarkable
ioadlike creature, the female of which
carries her young in a series of colls
in the thick skin of the back, which
assumes a strange ho'ney-combliko ap
pearance. When this lady toad is car
rying her nursery about with her, sho
is a very repulsive looking object.
Single handed she would be quite un
able to cope with tho important ques
tion of placing eggs where they will
be most favorably disposed for hatch
ing, and for this she has to rely on
the good services of her mate. Soon
after the eggs are laid they aro taken
up by the male and pressed, one by
one, into the cells in the thickened
skin of his partner's back. There they
grow until they fit closoly to the hex

which is closed abovo by a kind of
After a period of oomo eighty-two
days the eggs reach their full devel

but aotually perfect little toads. The
reason of this is that the tadpoles,
which require to breatho the air dis
solved in the water by means of their
external gills, could not exist in the
cells, and consequently this stage of j
development is passed through very
rapidly within the egg. In due time
the young toads to the uumber of
eighty or 100 burst open the lids of
their cells, poke out their noses and
make their entrance into the world. I

Severe Training lor a Future Emperor.
Some suggestive details concerning
the early education of the German
Emperor have just come out. It soems
that William II. had in early child
hood a tutor who was a captain of the
Guarde. Prince Bismarck had recom
mended him, and he applied to tho
heir to the throne the principle on
whioh he* had trained his recruits,
"bend or break. " The young Hohen
zollern was made to rise at 5.30 every
morning, and at once begin a course
of gymnastic exercises unsuitable for
a child of his age. It is this regimen,
authorities say, which made Prioco
William so weak and nervous that his
grandfather, tho old Emperor, sug
gested one day to Bismarck that his
captain of the Guards would perhaps
better return to his recruits.
Experiments With Soldiers' Rations.
A packing company of this oity is
making experiments in condensed food
to be used by the army on forced
marches. Special cans were made.
ThjB smaller one contains seven canees
of bacon and the largo one about
twenty-eight ounces of hard bread,
soup and coffee, tho two latter in the
form of square tablets. The entire
package weighs thirty-five ounces,
and contains about sixty-rive cubic in
ches of food. In the larger can tho
soup and coffee can be cooked. The
ration is sufficient to last over a day.
The first practical test will be made by
troops leaving Fort Logan, Col., on u
twenty days' march, September 5.

as a registering armor for boxers.
This device is a simple arrangement of
