His father was one of the great mer

man. His widow, one of the beautiful

thirty years her senior, and had a
daughter who is now Mrs. Ames Van

quaint and curious appearance, es

almost golden. Her eyes are large and
full of animation.,- Hex -usual attitude
is with her chubby" hands folded in
front of her, iher short; curved arms
'resting close 'against her. person. She
says that in. her country children are
never allowed to play out of doors,
and her arms', she explained, were
bowed because in her country children
are compelled to fold them always.
Her plump'and robust figure was richly
clad in red silk, close fitting, with
train, the whole trimmed with lace.
The ornaments consist of a heavy gold
ring and watch guard ornamented with
pendants. Her movements are easy
and quite graceful, and her voice low.

Miss Krarer says that in Greenland
people seldom live above sixty years.
They have but one sickness, and that is
such as in this,country is called con
sumption. They are sick about four
years, and during that time "our peo
ple," she says, "never pay any atten
tion to them. They say spirits have
them and they hate them. As soon as
they are taken ill they are placed in a
house by themselves, and all that is
done for them is to throw them a piece
of blubber as they would to a dog. If
sick people get well they are smart; if
they'die therare no good, and they
are thrown into a hole in the snow, to
gether with their furs and spears. When
people are dead fn my country we
don t want anything more to do with
"Fires in my country," says Mrs.
Krarer, "are lighted with a flint, and
a man who owns a flint is wealthy, and
he guards, it as carefully as a man ,io
this country would a lump of geld."
The domestic life of her people is
very simple, and yet subject to very
rigid regulations. She says:. "When
a wife is wanted from among the
maidens the enamored young man
watches his opportunity, and while the
parents are away or not observing ho
'steals her and takes her to another
honse. If caught in the net he is killed
by the parents, of the girl. If they are
dead his own parents do the deed, as
they consider that a man who is not
smart enough to steal a girl for his
wife is not smart enough to kill a bear,
and therefore should not be allowed to
live. A man must live with his wife
for life. It he deserts her be is put to
death. If a child disobeys its parents
it is punished by being burned with a
"In our land," she said, "we have
neither doctors, lawyers, preachers,
nor rulers of any kind, for we never
tell lies or steal; consequently it is not
necessary to have any rulers. In all of
Greenland there are no trees; the bare
ground is never seen, and there is no
water but that of the occau. I think
that Iceland would be a good place for
many of the American ladies to go, for
in that country the ladies nurer wash
themselves from the time they are
born until they die. The only thing
they do is to anoint themselves daily
with oil. In our country the ladies
amuse themselves by sitting on the
floor of their houses and looking at
each other, while engagingin animated
discussion as to the beauty of each
other, and the one having the greatest
amount of oil on her face is considered
to be the greatest beauty."
Miss Krarer has been eight years in
this country, and has no desire to re
turn to Greenland. She says she never
will go there again to remain per

Sho had given her young pupils a very
interesting lecture about the British

asked the boy at the head of the class;
"And now. Johnny, what are the
men called who govern or rule over us
in this country?" ,
"Kings!" said Johnny, promptly.
"Oh, no. Tell me, the next one, by
whom are we' governed?"
"No! Next boy."'

She rode two squares and got off,

When he bad disappeared a woman at

satisfied the big fellow, and he turned
away and glared at a Frenchman, also
a tourist, who had come in later. After
a long stare he walked up to Crapo
"Blast ycr bloomink parley vous, but

and to our utter astonishment the Kid
went right down into his boots and
slunk out of the room, having no

for five minutes before any one spoke.

Whar'a Mr Nigger!

going down the big river from Vicks
ourg to New Orleans. I happened to
strike a boat on which were half a
dozen professional gamblers. There
were a large number of other passen
gers, and a game was going on in the
cabin eight and day. I happened tn
fall in with two young men at the start,
and incidentally learned that they had
been off on a speculation which turned
out disastrously and were returning
home so close to dead broke that they
could only raise 20 between them.
On the second night one of them came
into the game with this money, and in
the course of an hour won 800. Then
luck shifted and he was cleaned out.
As his last dollar went the banker in

"Yere, Mars John!" answered a voice,
and a "young and likely," as it used to
be termed, negro boy about 20 years
old entered the cabin and bowed very

In just forty minutes the last dollar
was gone, luck and trickery being too
many for the young fellow, and as he
rose up the "banker" called out:
"Luck .seems to .bate some folks.
Whar's my nigger?"
No one could answer, but a search
for him was at once instituted. Three
or four men looked high and low, but
he could not be found, and it was
finally concluded that he had gone
overboard. There was a great deal of
"cussing around," but it didn't help
matters any, and all finally turned,' 'in
for the night. When I went to my
stateroom I found the washbowl full.of
black water, and a strange coat and

men came in the one who had not

Colonel Bob Fined for Contempt.
Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll would
never be suspected of being a respecter
of persons, for he has such a free and
easy way of discoursing upon religious
matters. His lejral protcire was Judire
Buterbaugh, then a Judge of the Cir
cuit Court at Peoria. III., Upon one oc
casion, awhile the Judge was engaged
in lining a spectator for contempt of
court, Ingersoll offered some gratuitous
advice, which was resented with some
show of indignation. Ingersoll retali
ated by hinting that when the Court
'was iishing in a political way after the
ermine he had not been so chary about
accepting advice. This warmed the
old man up in earnest, and he at once
imposed upon the presumptuous advo
cate a fine of $10 and costs. Ingersoll
fumbled in his pocket for a moment,
then walked up to the bar with out
stretched hand and said: "Puterbaugh.

said the excited native, "that I can lie
down here, right in your tracks, for an
hour, and nary1 a flea will touch me."
"I'll take you." said the Boston man.
So the San Diego man lay down and
the Boston maa took out his watch and
timed him. He stood it without a
squirm for fifteen minutes, but after
that he began to betray signs of a de
sire to scratch. The Boston man in
the meantime began to be afraid that
he would lose bis bet. The native was
holding himself in band, bent on stand
ing it out.if the fleas ate him up. The
Boston man took out the crystal of his
watch and used it as a lens and focused
a little spot of concentrated sunlight on
the native's back. It began to burn a
bole in his' coat. Tint the native was

home in 1826. says Scribner's Magazine.
He did propose in the latter part
of his life to return thither, and de
clared that he would rather lie under
a monnd of gravel in Sweden when he
was dead than beneath the tallest mon
ument that could be erected on Ameri
can soil. Ho became interested, how
ever, in his study' of solar heat and the
development of his sun motor, and was
not willing to transfer himself to a
region so Tittle adapted to such studies
as the high latitudes of Sweden. He
needed, as he explained, to be near the

securing to him an income much in ex

not until after he had reached his
sixtieth year, he was constantlv mak
ing gifts to Sweden and to Swedes.
These appear to have attracted little
or no attention in this country, but
they have added a feeling of affection
to the pride with which his country
men remember him. An ancient miner
sent word, through one of Ericsson's
correspondents,, that he had known
John in his youth; immediately a draft
was sent to purchase a handsome
watch for the old gossip, and as one of
his neighbors, "the man with the
leathern apron," was subsequently
fonnd to have some vague recollections
in the same line, he received 150
crowns to "buy him a coat."
When famine pinched the Norrland
en in 1867, and collectections for their
relief were taken np in various coun
tries, the total, contributions from the
United States amounted to 20,316
Swedish crowns. Of this sum Ericsson
gave 20,216 crowns, and a subscription
of 100 crowns from the Swedish minis
ter completed the total.
