The House of Romanot
The Romanoffs rather pride themselves
on the antiquity of their family-tree,
lsmng that it is known to have been
planted by a Lithuanian prince in the

that the i ily did not make their ap
pearance in ussia udtil the fourteenth
century. In the year 1841, Andrew
Kobyla ,migrated from Prussia to Mos
cow, and entered the service of the
Grand Duke Simeon the Fierce. The
descendants of Kobyla held high posi
tions, and the fifth in direct descent
from him was Roman Jurievitch, who
died in 1548, leaving a son Nikita
Boianovitch Jurief, who by hi mar
riage with the Princess of Busdal (a
direct descendant from a brother of St.
Alexander Nevskoi)/who was allied to
the royal race of Rurik; and a daughter
who became Ozarina by her marriage
with Ivan the Terrible. iia was One
of the regency during the minority of
Foodor I.; ad his eldest son, Feodor,
under the name of Philarete, was
elevated to the rank of Archnpandrite
and Metropolitan during the reign of
the false Dunitri. The Romanoffs sup
ported the party that tendered the Rus
sian orowVi to the Pohish prince, and
Philar.te had gone with that view to
Poland,' when the opposition became sc
violent as to change entirely the state of
affairs, and the Poles imprisoned
Philarete. The national party then pro
ceeded to the election of a native sover

possible by blood to the race of Burik,
and after nmh hesitation and many re

A WAJMUIL BOXANC.
6W.1aa4 (Qel.) Democrat.J
Afw ag a nteman by the
Uam* aot arrived in
Woodlan4 and took rooms at the capital
HoteL . He sted that he was an En Aish
fnan and that his object in visiting
daornia was to 0nd a man by the
name of Agernon Braningsford,who had
left his Nome in England in the year
185. Mr. Eldtedge, who is cousm of
the missing man, arrived in San Fran
sisoo about one month ago. He hap
pened to step into the Capital Hotel
saloon and overheard the barkeeper,
Patsy Donnell incidentally mention
the name of "l d Ag." Mr. Eldredge
thinking that possibly this was an ellip
sis of the name of the man of whom he
was in search -made further inquiry
about him. . Donnelly informed
bim that " Old Ag was a.sortof "dead
beat," whom he lad known for years as
a tramp, ad supposed that every saloon
keeper in the land was equally familiar
with him, but he knew nothing of 'his
history.. At present he was engaged in
sawing wood for a gentleman near by,.
and managed to spend hid money for
drink about as fast as he earned it. Mr.
Eldredge, having been directed, then
sought out the man in question; whonag
he found in that healthful occupation,
and at once recognized him as a man of
English birth, which greatly increased
his hopes of sucQss. After a serios of
questions were answered by "Old A "
it became very apparent to Mr. Eldrefge
that he was the same person he was looV
ing for, notwithstanding his forlorn and
dilapidated appearance. Finally Mr.
Eldredge-who, by the way, is an Eng
lish gentleman of the strictes type
ventured the remark: "Well 'Oll Ag,'
as theT seem to call you here, allow m11e
to introduce myself as your cousin Rod
ery Eldredge. I have come to tell you
that your old father,Lord Brauningsford,
is dead, and that you are heir to four
fifths of his estate, which is about
$2,000,000." To say that "Old Ag," was
startled by the unexpecled news would
not express one half, an the scehe which
followed can be better imagined than
Lord Branningsford, who was very
wealthy, had two sons, one named
Lionald and the other Agernon. In
1847 Lionald was married to a young
lad of high birth by the name of Eliza
Stratten. Agernon fnA a frenuent
visitor At the family residence, and' ow
ing to a quarrel between the twd broth
ers over the young wife Agernon em
barked for America, and nrrivell in San
Francisco in the fall of 1850. According
to his own story, he first engage as
bookkeeper in the wholesale house of
A. P. Hotaling, in which position he
remained for a year and a half, when a
defalcation in his accounts caused his
discharge. He then went to mining, and
his history from that epoch down to the
time he was found a penniless tramp in
this city is but the story of the many
who have gone that way. About two
years ago has brother died, and-only five
months ago his father also died, leaving
him heir to four-fifths of his estate, one
fifth going to the cousin, who was made
the residuary legatee if ho could prove
Agernon's death. This he set out to do
but coming to San Francisco he foundi
the living heir a vagabond.
Why the World Progreases.
It was a favorite theory with Buckle
that the world's progress is not made b~y
the emisent goodness of men or the
distinguished pieanness of men. In
other words, he believed that goodness
did not create civilization, but that the
"forces of civilization " caused goodness
and all of the world's progress. Hel
never become weary in elaborating this
opinion. It is the rock on which lhe sets
out to build his "History of Civiliza
9on." All through that "mighty frag
ment " in every chapter of that great u1n
finished book we meet the idea. But no
where is it more eloquently and forcibly
stated than when ho 'wrote: "'phe
gigantic crimes of Alexander or Napoleon
became, after a time, void of effect, and
the affairs of the world return to their
former level. This is the ebb and flow
of history, the 'perpetual flux to which
by the lawvs of our nature we are subject.
Above all this, there is a far higher
movement; and as the tide rolls on,
now advancing, now receding, there is,
amid its endless fluctuations, one~ thing,
and one alone, which endures forever.
Tho actions of bad men produce only
temporary evil, the action of good meni
only temporary good; and eventually the
good and the evil altogether subside, are
naturalized by subsequent generations,
abuorbed by the incessant movement of
future ages. But the discoveries -of
great men never leave us; they are im
mortal; they contain those eternal truths
which survive the shock of empires, out
live the struggles of rival creeds, and
witness the decay of successive religions.
SAll these have their different measures
band their different standards; one set of
opinions for one age, another set for an
other. They pass away like a~ dream;
they are as the fabric of a vision, which
. leaves not a rack behind. The discoveriesi
t of genius alone remains; it is to~ them
. we owe all that we no0W have; they aro
for all ages and for all times; never
'young, and never old, they bear the
f seed of their own life; they flow on in a
Sperennial and undying stream; they are
a essentially cumulative, and giving birth
. to the additions which they subsequently
t receive, they thus influence the most
i distant posterity, and after the lapw' of
centuries produce more effect than they
were able to do even at the moment of

Faw realize what an enormous akmount
of power is stored up in coal, and how
Little we really utilizb it. Prof. Rogers
has put it Deptly thus : The dynamio
value of one pound of good seam coal
is equivalent to the work of a man a day,
and three tons are equivalent to twenty
years' hard work of 300 days to the
year. The usual estimate of a four-foot
seam is that it will yield one ton of good
coal for every square yard, or about
5,000 tons for each square acre. Each
square mile will then contain 8,200,000
tons, which, in their total capacity for
the production of power, are equal to

IF BELTS are allowed to become oov
ered with grease, dirt, and resin, or to
grow dry and hard, they Can not wrk
air-tight on,the pulleys. Very often no
more than twenty-five per cent. of the
available power is obtained because of
these neglects. Many persons think
they obtain more driving power by plao
ing a tightener against the belt ; but this
gain is only the equivalent of the extra
surface with which the belt is brought in
contact by the tightener, and in the case
of a horizontal belt this will be nxarly
lost by friction, though on an upright
belt the tigntenor may be useful. 'here
is economy in working with slack belts,
keeping them clean and flexible, Hard
ened belts are best softened by a wash o
lukewarm soda water and a thorough
scraping and oiling.
She Was Kissed Too Much.
It isn't often that a girl is kissed too
much, and less frequently does a boy
suffer from too much of that sort of
thing. It is diflerent from washing and
ironing aipd cooking and sweeping down
the stairs, that girls have been known to
seek kissing rather than those things,
andl often miteh to the neglect of them.
It has never been supposed that any
great danger lurked in k issing, even
though a great deal of it be done, and if
it ha~s sometimes'fatigued the very ardent
-for sometimes ,the very best things
wvill fatigue one-it has usually been a
fatigue which all were willing to accept.
It appears, however, that there is a
great deal of danger in kissing whichi is
not sensibly and decently done. 4 story
comes through the English papers of an
extraordinary young German couple who
wagered to kiss each other ten thousand
times in thc course of teni hours. That
seems easy enough, and prob~ably there
are thousands of young lovers who pre
sume they have time and again done
some thousands better than that. The
wager wvas the result of a discussion
about howv many kisses could be crowded
into a'given time. The enterprise was
undertakenl With great vigor, the only
drawback being the presence of spec
tators. Within the first hour two thou
sand kisses were exchanged, and the
outlook was p~ropitious. The record,
however, did not keep up, only one
thousand being added in the second
hour. From this time on the business
lagged, and at the end o)f tho third hour
bo0th b~ro dlown. The young woman
fainted in the mnidst of too much of a
good thing, and the young man's lips
were) cramp~led out of their usefulness
It isn't worth while expressing an
opinion about an extraordinary couple
like that. They have their own punish
menit in the fact that the matrimonial
engalgemnent between them was broken
off in consequence of the strange per
f'ortuiance. Probably there isn't any
warning in this for American girls. They
don't miake a public exhibition of their
kissing, and they are never known to
faint at the end of the third hour. They
are the kind of girls also who do not
paralyze the young men's lips, and the
young man whose lips don't paralyze
must be a pretty poor' young man if hie
gives a girl time to faint between kisses.

much thiat way.-Philadelphia Times.
'What Hie Died of.
An old lady from this city who wasn
visiting in Boston heard a doctor- giving

"Euthanasia," answered the Boston
doctor, with professaional accuracy.
"Youth-in-Asia!" retoried the old lady,
"never heard teli of It before!- there ain't

" Oh!" said the doctor, politely, "it
