Tomorrow and to-morrow, O fair and far
What treasures lie when hope is high, along
your shining way!
What promises all unfulfilled, what better
deeds to do
Than ever yet, are softly set beneath your
skies of blue.
To-morrow and to-morrow, 0 sweet and far
Still evermon? lead on before, along your
1 shining way I
Still evermore lift up your eyes above what
we have won,
To higher needs and finer deeds that we
have left undone.

A NOVELIST AND HIS MANUSCRIPT.
How Zola the Noted French Author; Tor
ment* Printers and Proof-Re ader?.
Zola writes everything himself; he
never has a secretary for hi? extensive
correspondence. He even seals his
wrappers and addresses them when he
sends his friends brochures or his trans
lators material. He also writes his
literary manuscript himself. Out of it
the printers compose what are called
"placards"?large pages with four gigan
tic columns of text. These are sent to the
author carefully revised and free from
errors, and then Zola begins to correct, ?
He fills the wide margin all round with
hundreds of marks and letters; ink-lines
cut through the text, thin threads- run
crossways and diagonally, entwining
like a lasso a sentence scribbled in an
open space; scarcely a line is exempted
from the hieroglyphics of the master.
Here a note of interrogation must make
room for one of exclamation; here a
semicolon is changed into a full point; a
comma before or after the et effectively
divides a phrase; participles are replaced
by adjectives; substantives take the
place of pronouns; redundant adverbs
must also disappear; the "past difinit" is
substituted for the "imperfect;" more
descriptive words supply the place of
tame ones; for an expression repeated in
five or six pages a synonym is intro
duced; whole phrases are remodeled, sen
tences are condensed into two or three
words, and even half columns are ruth
lessly consigned at once into the com
positor's type-case. It must be a bitter
task to break up the print again, but
there is no help for it. The extra fees
charged elsewhere on authors for correc
tions are not known; nobody complains;
author and publisher rival each other in
a common endeavor after perfection.
After such a corrected text the Paris
journal prints, and the translations are
done in exactly the same way.
In the newspaper print the publisher
sees his work a step nearer the book
form. But the process of alteration is
still unfinished, and Zola is not the man
to watch this process with his hands in
his pockets. He now perceiyes in his
work a thousand things which escaped
him before, and he begins anew to cor
rect more industriously and more relent
lessly than before. He makes ravages
_pn_the texttj^ejbaing.and touch ing up. the
periods, reconstructihglvhole pages, and
sprinkling column after column with
new improvements. "The feuilleton is
for me only a first draught," he once
wrote to me. At last comes the day on
which the publisher, Charpentier, re
ceives the last bon-a-tirer; the new work
is ready; Zola will never more withdraw
anything from it, and he can now rest.?

The Proposed African Inland Sea.
The most recent estimate that has been
made by the the French engineers in re
gard to the proposed African inland sea
is that the undertaking could be consum
mated in the maximum period of five
years, at a cost of about ?30,000,000, it
being sufficient to cut, in the alluvial
part of the region traversed, a canal
averaging some eighty to one hundred
feet in width, which would be further
?widened by the action of the current.
It appears that the estuary of the Owed
Meliah, which is the beginning of the
canal leading to the place to be inun
dated, offers a port, covered at high
water, of adequate breadth, which might
easily be excavated, and would form a
a port sheltered by nature from all the
?winds from northeast to south, passing
by the west; the winds from northeast to
south, passing by the east, would not be
dangerous to the breakwaters. The nav
igation of the canal, it is also said, will
offer no difficulty, as the canal will form
almost a straight line. The proposed in
land sea would be fifteen times as large
as the Luke of Geneva.?Boston Tran
Electric Agriculture in Germany.
An interesting experiment, showing
the influence of electricity on the growth
of roots, has been made in Germany by
Professor Holdeileiss. Plates of copper
were thrust upright into the earth and
connected by wires with similarly placed
zinc plates about 100 feet distant?an
electric battery being thus formed, with
the earth between the copper and zinc
in the circuit. Both potatoes and beets
planted between such plates gave an in
creased yield?beets 15 per cent., pota
toes 25 per cent.?as corhpared with other
parts of the same field.?Arkansaw Trav
The Scarcity of Small Coins.
The Chicago Herald holds that chil
dren's savings banks are responsible for
the scarcity of small coins in that city.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars in pen
nies, nickels and dimes, the Chicago edi
tor says, are hoarded in the thousands of
toy banks throughout the country, and
these, if put in circulation, he contends,
would materially lessen the stringency
of the money market in coins of the
A Remarkable Maine Superstition.
Talking of superstitions, that of a Saco
man is rather remarkable. He never
will allow himself to go to sleep with
the toe of his slippers pointing toward
his bed. Should be retire leaving his
slippers in that position, he can not sleep
until they have been changed and the
toes made to point in the opposite direc
tion. Then he sleeps the sleep of thfl
Bollgious Belief of the Aztecs.
The Aztecs believed there were three
places assigned as abodes for departed
spirits. Women who died in childbirth
and soldiers who perished in battle or
captivity went to the "House of the Sun,"
where they enjoyed endless delight.
"At morning they hailed the luminary
with music and dancing, attended ldm
in his journey to the meridian, where
they met the spirits of women, and with
similar festivities accompanied him to
setting." After years of these pleasures
their spirits were transformed into clouds
or birds of beautiful plumage and pleas
ant song, but had always power to
ascend at will to Heaven?the House of
the Sun, Tho notion or aristocracy was
carried to the other world; for while
kings and nobles animated gorgeous
birds and dazzling clouds, and floated
through the purest atmosphere, the souls
of common people were doomed to crawl
eternally in weasels, beetles and the
meaner animals. v
The spirits of those who were drowned,
or struck by Ughtning, or who died of
wounds, dropsy and similar diseases,
with the souls of children who had been
sacrificed to Tlaloe, the god of waters,
went to a delightf ul place, called Tlalo
can, where that god resided, surrounded
by everything which could contribute to
immortal happiness. The third place of
departed souls was Mietlan, or hell, a
kingdom of total darkness, ruled by an
evil god and goddess, where their only
punishment was the gloomy blackness of
the realm, cheered by never a ray from
sun or moon nor the glimmer of a star.
The ancients located tins hell in the
center of the earth, and it may have
been but a type of total annihilation.?
Fannie B. Ward in Philadelphia Record.
A Covenant with tho Animals.
There is something in the nature of a
covenant with the animals that do our
work and supply our tables and cover
our limbs. It is not only that they die
for us; they have ever lived for us, and
but for us the}- would never have been.
Nor is it consistent with civilized ideas
to parade the unchanged exterior of the
animals we are obliged to use. We
clothe our extremities with skins, but so
changed as never to suggest the sleek or
agile forms they once covered. We
fleece sheep for our clothes, but nothing
is less like a flock of sheep than a crowd
of men. The cowhide, telling its own
tale, has long disappeared from even the
trunk shop and has become a curiosity
on a railway platform.
Well, but how about ladies' muffs and
sealskin jackets? Civihzation must con
fess to them and leave the fair sex to
speak for itself. No doubt the lion's skin
became Hercules, and the custom has
long since assimilated to our taste the
most outlandish creatures gracefully dis
posed over a fair form. But there i6 no
needless parade, or at least, so little that
we do not notice it. It is not so with
the assumption of plumage. The poor
bird is exhibited as whole as possible.
Head, wings and tail are all shown as
faithfully and fully as those of the
hawk nailed to a barn door. But the
most foolish fashion can always exceed
itself, and, bad as a thing may be, there j
is worse.?London Times.
Manual Training for Every Child.
Superintendent MacAlister writes that
the conviction obtains among the mem
bers of the board of education of Phila
delphia, and is, in his opinion, growing
in the public mind generally, that every
child should receive manual training;
that a complete education implies, tho
training of the mind, and that this
feature must ultimately be incorporated
into the public education. He concludes:
"I feel encouraged to go forward with
the work. The great principles which
underlie the system are with me intense
convictions, and they mean nothing les3
than a revolution in education. The now
system is the realization of the dream of
every great thinker and reformer in edu
cation, from Comenius, Locke and Rous
seau to Pestalozzi, Froebel and Spencer.
My conviction and action in connection
with this movement are based upon
what, in my judgment, should constitute
an education designed to prepare a
human being for the social conditions of
to-day. mid not merely for the industrial
demands of our time. Ami this must bo
realized in the public schools, or they
will fail in accomplishing the ends for
which they were instituted and aro

four or five times as long as is necessary

shown by stenographers, who write as
fast as a person can speak. In view of
the increase of writer's cramp due to the
extraordinary amount of writing to be
done by bookkeepers, book-writers,

that a new method of writing should be
intelligently discussed and one inaugur

taxing upon the small and weak muscles
of the hand; a handwriting in whieh the

THE PENURIOUSNESS OF ROYALTY.
Potentates Who Lay Aside N?jt-E?gys from
the Tithes of the People.
Louis Pliilippe was mean in the sense
the Americans attach to the word and
had no perception of any kind of grand
eur. He cut down ruthlessly, to make
money of them, trees in his parks which
had weathered the storms of many hun
dred years. His meanness was the ruin
of Iiis dynasty. From St. Petersburg to
Madrid and London to Athens thrift now
reigns. There is hardly a sovereign who
feels that the income allowed him by the
aation over which he reigns is not for
bim or her, but for the dignity of the
crown, and to act as a head waiter on
national industry. The czar and czarina
themselves, colossal as their private fort1
line is, are intent on making it much
greater. Stinginess is traditional in the
house of Hohenzollem, but their civil
list allowances have been never great,
and they shrink from no duty, however
hard and irksome. They have public
spirit in a high degree, and command re
spect. The. late king, of Sweden be
queathed his only daughter the largest
fortune that was ever known in Scandi
navia, and it would have been counted a
great one all the^ world river. His father
was Bernado'tte, the son of a Beamais
lawyer of small provincial practice.
In Belgium, the royal family is also a
plutocratic one. Although Leopold I
was fleeced by fair harpies in his old age,
he left each of his three children about a
million sterling. Yet M. Etienne Arago
remembers when he had to go in debt for
Borne French embroidered musbn which
he bought to make presents to the sisters
of his (in 1810) master, the czar. Empress
Elizabeth is prodigal, and thinks she can
never spend enough on her stables and
dog kennels; but the emperor is anxious
to swell his investments and the crown
prince and princess pare cheese.
In Italy the king saves to pay his
father's debts, and nobody", therefore,
complains of Ids thrift. Ludwig of Ba
varia is not of his time. His brother of
Wurtemburg is not personally extrava
gant, like our James I, but is profuse
through favorites. The one now domi
nating him is an American, who succeeds
an American. At Lisbon the king
dowager has amassed so much as to be
able to spend millions of francs on his
country house near Clntra, and in furn
ishing it and the palace where he and his
amiable wife live in winter. Maria Pia,
being passionately fond of dress, Dom
Luis pinches in the stables and wherever
else he can. He, however, only saves
out of his Income. His ministers plunder

suspected of receiving a share of the
hauls they thus periodically make.?Lon
A Yankee Doctor In Paris.
When Professor Frank Billings sailed
for France with the children from this
city who were treated by M. Pasteur, he
exhibited a lementable ignorance of the
French language to the passengers and
officers of the steamship Canada. In
Paris he was likewise ignorant, and .Pas?
teur was somewhat surprised that a" sei*1
entist should have been chosen to ac
company the expedition who could not
converse with him without an inter
preter. He would have been more sur
prised had he followed Dr. Billings home
and heard him converse in elegant and
masterly French with Mrs. Billings, who
is a native-born French woman. In fact,
the professor kept it mighty quiet in
Paris that he was a finished French
He had a laudable object in view in
assuming ignorance. He went .to Paris
to learn something, and knowing that
the Frenchmen are jealous of their se
crets ho wisely concluded that he could
learn more by listening than by asking
questions. The ruse was successful, and
he came back the possessor of a great
deal more information about viruses
tlian M. Pasteur is aware or. In fact, he
discovered some facts not yet known to
the scientific world.?Newark (N. J.)

Much has been said concerning the
speed of ice yachts, but reports are, no

Burial of the Head In Thibet.
The nomadic Thibetans do not bury
their dead, but throw them to the wild

Onion* as a Pneumonia Cure.
Pneumonia has been cured by a diet of

Largely the Effect of Habit.
Every permanent state of mind is

The power to sleep when and where

to be heaven sent. Men of the highest
ability have been noted for the ease with
which they could take those cat naps,
far more invigorating than hibernation,
which repair the nervous waste and
allow them in waking hours to accom
plish herculean tasks with their brains.
That insomnia is totally unknown to all
these ready sleepers would be assuming
too much, for the disease, if disease it is,

Benjamin F. Butler is a living example
of the power to doze at will, and another
greater than he, the imperishable leader
of the Liberals in England, nods like
Homer himself when political stress and
strain are doing their worst for him and
his party. Had Mr. Gladstone, with the
fame of statesmanship at stake, and the
weight of English supremacy to uphold,
been through all this a nervous man,
subject to broken rest, he never would
have celebrated his 76th birthday and
still be the virile exponent of his party
principles. Insomnia has a tough fight
to conquer such a hardy constitution and

Tho Remedies of Oar Ancestors.
Before the diffusion of a knowledge of
the circulation of the blood by Harvey,
in 1619, the theories of medicine were
based almost entirely upon the writings
of Galen, a physician of Pergamus, who I
lived under the reigns of the Roman em
perors Hadrian, the Antonenis, Corn
modus and Severus, in the second cen
tury of our era. The practice of the
healing art was mostly made up of the
use of simples?herbs or minerals?the
form or source of which gave an idea of
their use. Blood-letting, burning the
skin with the hot iron, the application to
it of balsams and various drugs having
a pleasing or disgusting odor, horrible
farragoes or sometimes hundreds of het
erogeneous materials, blistering, frictions,
bathing in certain springs or rivers sup
posed to have some wondrous power
over certain ailmonts, apphcationB to
the skin or taking into the stomach of
oils coming from ah* sorts of sources
such were the remedies of our ancestors.
Emetics and cathartics held high rank
alongside of blood-letting. Rational med
icine, the child of patient observation
and physiology, was not born. Chem
istry had not emerged from the mist of
alchemy, and had furnished only a few
valuable products for the relief of suf
fering. "The "nepenthe" of the ancient
and middle-age writers was probably a
secret preparation of opium.?Cor.
The Creole Ladles of Now Orleans.
The Creoles give to Now Orleans much
of its most charming and polished so
ciety; its fetes, carnivals, and far-famed
winter gayeties. They must be seen and
, Jknown to be properly understood. But
"a"'few years since aad comparatively few
had much knowledge of English. With
a very large proportion to-day, even, but
little of it is heard among themselves.
The most of this little, again, is with the
young folks. The latter talk it fluently
enough, though the foreign accent is gen
erally discernable. With the older ones,
more particularly in "Frenchtown," that
portion below Canal street, is still well
nigh unknown. They may perhaps un
derstand it after a fashion. They rarely
affect to talk it. They prefer, generally,
that the young folks should act as inter
preters. The latter here, again, are by
no means confined to French and Eng
Perhaps nowhere else is there to be
heard such a diversity of languages. One
bore in a French, or rather creole, board
ing-house, for instance, may not infre
quently hear, at the table, the daughters
of the landlady, or "madame," carrying
on a conversation in French, English,
Spanish, and Italian with those of the
different nationalities at the same time.
The thing is so common as hardly to be
classed in the line of accomplishments.?
