HE FORESAW HIS DOOM.
Singular Premonition of v Man Who Waa
If Christopher P. McGuire, the Phila
delphia boiler setter who was instantly
killed Friday afternoon by falling down
the cellar stairs of the store at 48 East
forty-second street, had only taken heed
to the curious premonition which came
to him before ho left home ou the previ
ous day, his wife and little daughter
would not now be crying their eyes out
in their cozy home.
McGuire was the superintendent for
Harrison & Wharton of Germantown,
and traveled all over the country, look
ing after the setting up of their boilers.
He always went on these journeyß cheer
fully enough, but when he was ordered
to go to Boston Thursday he went to his
home at 3235 Irving street in a singular
state of depression. He told his wife
and friends that he felt certain that he
would meet his death on the I rip and re
fused to be laughed out of his convic
His wife accompanied him to the
Broad street station, and after he had
got on the train he jumped off to em
brace her again and begged her to at
least go with him. She could not leave
their little daughter, and he went alone.
She caught some of his worry herself
and did not sleep a wink all night and
was hardly surprised to get a telegram
next afternoon telling of his sudden
death. She came to this city and took
the body to Philadelphia.—New York
The Paris Universal Exhibition.
One of the principal events of the
week has been the issue of a decree,
signed by President Carnot and pub
lished in The Journal Ofnciel, organiz
ing the commission for the universal ex
hibition to be hold here in 1900. The
measures proposed are similar to those
taken for tiie exhibition here four years
ago. One of the most intimate friends
of the president, M. Alfred Picard of
the Conseil d'Etat, is named commis
sary general and director in chief of the
entire enterprise, and he will be aided
iv his herculean task by numerous con
sultative committees. It is needless to
add that this exhibition, organized for
the purpose 'rff inaugurating the com
mencement of the twentieth century, is
to be immeasurably superior to the great
fair of 1889 and to be on a scale alto
gether unprecedented.—Paris Letter.

THE ONLY TIMES IN A CHEEKY MAN'S,
CAREER WHEN NERVE VANISHED.
His First Itnforttinuto Ktperieneo Waa In
Public and Ills Second In rrlvate, but;
In the Latter SI; vat liuk Was Confusion
I have never been really nnd genuinely
' embarrassed but twico in my life. I
have been cluse to it many a time, but
my traininft as n traveling man and a
naturully cheeky disposition has always
saved nic, excepting these two I inn s.
The first timo happened many yoars
ago. I had more hair on the top of my
head then, more self confidence and far
less experience. It happened during
some school commencement exercises la
the town hall of the little plaoo where I
lived. I had to deliver an oration that
night. Itwas "Spartacns." Every boy
knows it and has been thrilled by it.
The whole town population and tho
country for miles around WOTS there. So
was my sweetheart and all her folks.
Tho town hall had a regulation stage,
and in the center of that tnage and near
the front was a trapdoor. I novor knew
this trapdoor to be used, but it was
there, and underneath was a dark spare
used for storing old broken .chairs, di
lapidated scenery and wrecked furnituiv
of every description,
On this night, in question somebody
had weakened the underpinning of this
door. I nevov knew who did it. and if I
found out at this Into day even I would
kill him. I came out iv all tho glory of
Sunday clothes—a Starched shirt and
tight shoes—and began telling without a
tremor how Lentulun, returning with
victorious eagles, had amused the popu
lation of old Capua and how the little
band of gladiators gathered that night
in the forsaken arena. At this point I
began the speech of Spartacns.
W Ith right arm upraised I shouted,
"Ye call me chief!" and stepped square
on that, fata! trapdoor. Down I went
like a piece of lead on (he end of a plumb
line, and the audience rose. I thrashed
around in the dirt and debris, half
stunned, for a few moments, but could
find no way out. They finally fished me
out up through that hole again. 1 was
covered with dirt and cobwebs, my
clothes were torn, and my reappearance
was the signal for wild applause. 1 can
state honestly and feelingly that I was
embarrassed. No boy has ever spoken
"Spartacus" in that town since. The rec
ollection of my effort has always been
Bad as this was. my socond experience
was worse, It happened a short time
ago. Tho memory of it is ro recent that
my blood hasn't recovered yet from the
chill I went through. I have a very inti
mate friend who has a young lady ac
quaintance in a certain city. We can
call her Miss Green. But that is not her
name. My friend is a line young man,
but as careless and thoughtless as a but
terfly. I had to visit this city of which
I speak, and my friend insisted on my
calling on Mil's Green and taking a let
ter of introduction. I didn't much like
the idea of being introduced in that
way and said so. But my friend was
so anxious that I weakly gave in and
departed, bearing a letter to Miss, Green.
And, as I found out afterward, neither
inside nor outside of this letter did my
friend use her first name.
The evening after my arrival I put on
my best and costliest raiment, rehearsed
a number of my best sayings and started
out. Miss Green lived in the very best
part of town. Her residence evidently
belonged to people more than well to do.
To the servant who opened thn door I
gave the letter, asking if Miss Green was
at home. She was. I was ushered into
a parlor, and the inside of the house
showed more than the outside that I was
in the home of people of wealth and re
finement. I began to feel that awe that
strangers amid strange surroundings al
ways feel, when a door opened and the
prettiest ' "! lever saw came into the
room. lar • .tnd bowed. She stood a
moment irresolutely, and a faint blush
came over her face. She had my letter
in her hand also, I remember. Soon she
spoke. I will never forget her voice. It
was clear as a silver boll.
"Mr. Boo," she said, "I have no doubt
but that it would bo pleasant to have
yon among my acquaintances, but really
I do not know your friend who has writ
ten his letter. He is a stranger to me."
Talk about being knocked down with
a feather. A piece of down from a hum
ming bird's wing would have floored me.
Hot and cold streaks ran over me like a
flash, while the perspiration in drops like
marbles came out on my forehead. I
was embarrassed and wild with rage at
the trick that had been played. I thought
in an instant that here is this pretty, re
fined and modest girl, who thinks that
I have seen her somewhere and adopted
such a subterfuge to become acquainted
with her. I don't know how I ever es
caped from that house, but I did, and if
I had been in reach of the writer of that
letter that night there would have been
an immediate row.
The next day tho blackest negro out of
Africa brought me a little note. The
note said a terrible mistake had been
made. My letter had been intended for
a sister who knew my friend very well.
The sister had been out when I called,
and as there was nothing in the letter to
distinguish which Miss Green was meant
the recipient took it to herself, and be
ing somewhat embarrassed and confused
hadn't thought of its not being for her,

THE HOLY OFFICE.
Function* "f the Congregation of the In
quisition Iv the Eternal City.
Thcro are two different tribunals at
Rome if> which is intrusted the judg
ment of books, psmphleU, articles and
other writings referred to them ns liable
to a charge of endangering faith and
morals. One of these is tho congregation
of the holy offlce or inquisition, and the
other is the congregation of the index.
The very name of the former of these
will can so a thrill of horror in tho minds

tion is derived from the calumnies and
exaggerations that have been heaped
npon it by its enemies.
It is not my business to defend it in
my present paper. I would only re
mind ihe reuder that it is most unfair
to impute to tho Roman inquisition the
cruelty and injustice of the Spanish tri
bunal, against which the popes again and
again protested. The Spanish inquisi
tion is now happily defunct, and the
Roman OOBfrregntion of the inquisition
alone survive. It is it permanent com

body and 1 fta meetings always

Paul UJ, by n constitution beginning
with tho v.v V,., "Licet ab inito," and

soever, for it has intrusted to it the

self, all hough in point of fact his multi
tudinous duties rarely permit of his

taken by one of tho cardinals chosen by
luui, who has to report to the holy fa

place during its session.
Besides t he cardinal who acts as presi
dent, there is a secretary, who is usually
the senior cardinal present; a commis
sary, whose business it is to decide what
questions shall be referred to the consult
ors for their opinion, and who is al
ways a Dominican; a promoter fiscalis
or public prosecutor, who conducts the

Great Men nt Chess.
William Steinitz, champion chess
| player of the world, has playod the game
j of kings with some of the world's gieat
est men who were not professional play
ers. He played more than one stout
game lasting from early night into tho
next morning with Yon Moltke, who in
addition to being a great general was
one of tho best chess players in Europe,
and who fought his chessmen as he did
his army corps—always to win. He
played with quite another sort of per
son when in Paris at the time of the
fullness of the power of Napoleon HI.
Ho was honored once by having this
gloomy, ambitious misanthrope for an
antagonist, and says that the last French
emperor might have made a respectable
chess player but for his weakness in mak
ing rash and utterly unnecessary moves.
Once the champion met the Prince of
Wales in a friendly game, but he Bays
there was no honor in beating that good
natured gentleman, for he played hap
Herr Steinitz has played with Bis
marck among others, hut he does not
consider the great Oerman statesman a
master of chess, as Yon Moltke was.
Bismarck never had, he says, that mas
tership of himself that is necessary in
the game of chess. He could not con
tain himself when his antagonist tcould
sit for half an hour studying out a series
of moves. He would stride the floor,
puff volumes of smoke, and at times
seem about to sweep cheesboard, chess
men and all away with heavy hand.

itz, "and no man can master chess with
out patience." Mr. Steinitz ought to

a visitor to a collector of bric-a-brac,
who was exhibiting his chief treasure —a
handsomely carved oak table.
"Indeed it ia," replied the other proud

oldest specimen of furniture extant."
"It may be the finest, but not the old

have an Arabic table at home which
dates before tho beginning of the Chris
tian era. In fact it is known to be more
than 2,000 years old."
"You surprise me," said the collector,
not a little nettled by the remark. "I
had no idea there were any tables as old
as that. Is its history authentic? Whs*
is its character?"
"Oh, it's very simple," added tho
other. "It's the multiplication table.
Its history is perfectly authentic, and as
for its character, why, that is perplexing
