Taelr Search for tlio Beautiful.
Two Brooklyn girls in New York on a
shopp.ng expedition were the victims of a
laughable contretempts tho other day.
Near (he corner of Thirtieth street and
Broadway is a little shop conspicuously
elegart from the outside, undecorated by
any si,rn, and without a proprietor's name
on its plate-glass front. The windows are
adorned by suits of old armor, by busts,
statues, antiques, and silk-plush curtains;
through the door one catches an inviting
glimpse of embroidered screens and plate
glass mirrors. In the innocence of their
heart'- they walked in to price some article
which caught their fancy, and before they
were well aware what manner of a place
their search for the beautiful had led thorn
into, they found themselves before a carved
mahogony bar behind which the white
aproned attendants were briskly mixing
the morning cocktails for some overdressed
young dudes. The girls retreated precipi
tately and quickly gained the street, vow
ing they would never enter another un
known shop in New York city. They had
learned, at the cost of experience and many
painful blushes, that a gilded exterior
does not always indicate a Japanese store
or a bric-a-brac shop.?New York Cor.

Introduction of the Potato.
The French Intended doing honor to the
potato by celebrating the cenetenary of
of Parmentier, who not only introduced
that root into France, but inveigled his
countrymen into eating it Parmentior's
efforts to popularize a plant which has
since become a staple article of food were
all in vain, until he bethought him of the
old proverb concerning stolen fruit, and
planted a very large field with potatoes.
When they were fltfar digging, he caused
them to be j protected all day long by
gendarmes. When the officers were with
drawn his potato field was plundered.
TEe taste'thus' acquired spread with
amazing rapidity; Parmentier had :a title
bestowed upon him by Louis XVL, and
took for his crest a potato flower. At the
festival all the different varieties of the
potato are to' bo exhibited and all the
instruments used in its cultivation.?Jos
Vaccination on a Grand Scale.
A correspondent of The Paris Temps
proposes that a bust of Radama II, king
of Madagascar, be placed in the vestibule
of the Pasteur institute. Radama II.
flourished about 1801, and so knew noth
ing of M. Pasteur, but he was an enthus
iastic vaccinationist, thinking that all
complaints might be prevented by some
such treatment as has proved efficacious
in the case of small-pox. With a view to
proving his theory, he obtained the virus
of all diseases known in his dominions,
placed his collections in a large bottle, and
Inoculated his council of ministers with
the mixture. It proved that he had dis
covered not so much a panacea for all hu
man ills as a speedy means of producing a
change of government It is recognized,
however, that Radama IL meant well.?
Matrimony Under False Pretenses.
Proceedings, it is said, are about fo be
begun by a Frenchman who bears a fa

ground that her father led him into matri

his daughter a dowry which he was not in
, position to give. Incidents like this throw
a licht like that in the apothecary's win
dow on the tinseled romance of the coro

of not a few transatlantic damsels. One

The Virtue of Bottled Sea-Foam.
A few days ago a reporter witnessed at
North beach, while listening'to what tho
wild waves were telling to each other, the
putting into practice of a strange supersti
tion. A belief obtains among many of the
credulous all over the world that ocean or
river water, if collected in a certain way
with certain vessels, is a positive cure for
many diseases that flesh is heir to. The
best known instance of this belief is the
strong faith of the natives of India in the
healing powers of the rivers Ganges and
At a little cove between Meiggs' wharf
and the Shelby smelting works two ladies,
both apparently belonging to the most re
spectable social ranks, were the actors in
the strange drama witnessed by the re
porter. One of the ladies stood on the
6hore close to the rising tide, and was
counting a long string of black and white
cowrie shells, while repeating a formnla
of which the reporter could not quite
catch the meaning, but it sounded like re
peating a number of numerals in Spauish.
Standing in the water knee deep, regard
less of the ruin to her clothing, was the
other participant in the ceremonies. In
one hand she held a white flint-glass bot
tle, with an extremely long, thin neck and
a capacity of about a pint. With the other
hand she was carefully gathering the foam
from the crest of each incoming wavelet,
using as a scoop a large blue shell of the
coquille variety. The contents of the shell
she carefully decanted Into the bottle.
The lady skimmer of the seas refused to
answer any ot tho inquiries of the over
curious, preserving a strict and freezing
silence, but the counting lady was more
communicative. She said: "My friend is
gathering the sca-foam to bathe her little
sick dog in. You may laughat us, but we
know by trial that the' water as we are
now getting it is a sure cure for the poor
thing. Unless we observe all the neces
sary forms it Is time and work wasted.
There! Ah, poor thing! She has to com
mence all over again. She put the water
without the foam into the bottle, and that
spoils all she had already got. We were
told of this cure some time ago. I tried it
on my maltose cat, and it cured her, sure.
AU there is to do is to wash tho sick ani
mal In it; that's all there is of it. Yes, it
may look very silly, the whole thing, but
we are willing to be laughed at if our little
darlings can be cured."?San Francisco
Doomed Unfortunates in Florida.
But who are these I meet at every turn
who seem to have stayed awhile?longer
perhaps, than they will stay anywhere
else in this world, whose hacking cough
jars so painfully on the sympathetic
nerves!' They are the army of invalids, or
rather the stragglers from the main army,
left here in its northward march. And
they are one and all "disgusted with
Florida." They all think it a bad place
I for invalids. They are all "just waiting
here a few days, till they get strong
enough" to go to Minnesota, Colorado, or
California. Many of them have their
trunks packed to start; one or two tell me
they have bought their tickets and "would
have started to-day only I caught a fresh
cold, and so am not gaining strength just
now." Poor fellows! Poor, doomed, un
fortunates, halting feebly or* the verge of
the tomb, and still believing every siren
song of hope.

I certainly have personal cause to sym
pathize with consumptives; but I confess
that I arrange my movements so as to lis
ten to them as little as possible. For I am
satisfied, and long/ have been, that con
sumption is contagious?very contagious,
indeed, to those who have a slight ten
dency that way?and between two resorta
of anything of equal attractiveness, I
would urge the incipient consumptive to
go where he will hear the fewest bke him
self. It is not only breathing a close air
with them?that may be avoided?but to
hear them talk and cough will certainly
aggravate the consumptive tendency in
another. I fancy that one reason my
seven years in Utah and the Rocky Moun
tains did me so much good was that I
associated entirely with healthy people
miners, Mormons, Indians, railroad men,
soldiers, and hunters. All the prominent
people I saw or thought much about were

Nature's Favorite Garden ?pot.
The terrestrial flowerlandpar excellence
is the Caspian slope of the Caucasus
range, near the pass of Derbent, the an
cient Pylfe Caucasite. The mountains, to
a height of 5,000 feet, are all summer
aflame with flowers, both in the forest and
open glades. AH sorts of blooming creep
ers stretch their festoons from tree to tree;
flowery mountain meadows attract
swarms of butterflies; hollyhocks and
tlger-lilles are found near the upper limits
of arboreal vegetation. A correspondent
of The Ausland, who visited that Caspian
Florida in the company of a party of Rus
sian railway surveyors, comes to the con
clusion that the highlands of the east
were, after all. nature's favorite garden
spots, and that the master races of man
kind who abandoned that paradise have, iu
many respects, gone further to fare worse.

President Arthur's Happiest Days.
Prcsident'Arthur always dressed well,
and his clothes were always in accordance
with the occasion. His usual snit when
receiving callers was a black diagonal with
a Prince Albert coat closely buttoned and
cut so as to fit him perfectly. He wore
business suits while in his office, and his
favorite hat was a tall plug, black during
the winter and white in the summer. His
fondness for fishing was well known, and
it is said that he caught the largest salmon
ever caught with a fly in this country.
During his presidency he made many fish
ing trips, and about the only presents ho
would receive were those consisting of
fishing-rods. .When he left the White
House he wont off fishing us the first thing,
and I think his happiest days were spent
with the rod in his hands.?"Carp" in Cleve
A Substitute for a Drink.
It is a little strange that we have no
other amusement for our friends but to
ask them to a drink. Several years ago I
carried a box of seidlltz powers, and it was
my habit at a summer hotel to wake up
some man on the floor and compel him, in a
friendly way, to have a seidlite power with
me. Nobody was allowed to refuse, and
the only way he could bo permitted to go
sleep again was to toko a seidlitz powder.
In a little while all the men in the house
became gooddooking; complexions im
proved; but at last I ran out of seidlitz
powders. From that tiinu onward cock
tails before breakfast, whisky and beer
late at dight and the usual forms of folly

THE STREET SCENES OF TUNIS.
A Bloving: Ovlnc; Panorama That Is ol
Intense Interest to the Stranger.
The street scenes of Tunis are a novelty
to a Emopean or an American, as yon see
nothing like them except in an oriental
city, or perhaps in Tunis itself. As I sit
by my hotel window and gaze down upon
the street, the moving living panorama
that is continually passing by from early
morning until late at night is ever chang
ing like the prisms in a kaleidoscope and
never" devoid of intense interest to the
stranger. Camels are as plenty as horses
in an American city, and I seldom look
out into the street without seeing more or
less of these uncouth animals crowding
their way through the narrow thorough
fares, sometimes singly or in pairs, and
not infrequently a long caravan of forty
or fifty or more coming in from far away
interior towns, heavily laden with mer
chandise and all manner of country pro
Strapped to the backs of the camels, un
til it would seem as if they would break
down with the heavy burthens, are sacks
of wheat and barley, bales of wool and
compressed rags, hay, cord wood for burn
ing and, occasionally, sticks of timber.
Many have largo Spaniers made of grass,
thrown over their backs, which are filled
with vegetables of different kinds, earthen
pottery, rude stoneware, etc. These cara
vans are usually preceded by an Arab
mounted on a donkey, who acts as the
leader, and who seems to have perfect
control of the long line of camels follow
ing. In going through the streets there is
a stampede of the motley crowd of Arabs,
and of vehicles, if there happens to be any,
to places of safety, for, like sailing vessels,
the camels have the right of way, and in
very narrow streets, with the big paniers
bulging out from either side of their bod
ies, they occupy all the space between the
low buildings, to the exclusion of street
loungers and wayfarers.
In the kaleidoscope of humanity that
meets the eye from my hotel window are
the Arab money changers, with baskets of
coins on their arms: "medicine men" in
their grotesque costumes, who. by their
strange, unearthly incantations,' and for
small fees, pretend to save souls from
purgatory; wretched, half-naked beggars,
howling, moaning, and beseeching, with
outstretched palms, for the smallest of fa
vors in the way of food or copper coins;
street venders, bearing on their heads or
shoulders baskets of merchandise or vege
tables; jugglers plying their craft: Arab
priests, or "holy men," to whom the rabble
pay deference by getting out of their way
and making low salaams as they pass'by.
Occasionally one of the bey's ministers, or
possibly the bey himself, in his gilded car
riage drawn by four or six mules, accom
panied by an escort of ten or twelve offl
cere in gorgeous oriental uniforms,
mounted on splendid Arabian horses, goes
doshing by, followed, perhaps, by a num
ber of mounted Bedouins, who are testing
the speed of their favorite steeds with
those of their illustrious rulers.?Tunis

The Fourteen Mistakes of Life.
Somebody has condensed the mistakes
of life, and arrived at the conclusion that
there ore fourteen of them. Most people
would say, if they told the truth, that
there was no limit to the mistakes of life;
that there were like tho drops in the ocean
or the sands of the shore in number, but it
is well to be'accurate. Here, then, are
fourteen great mistakes: "It is a greut
mistake to set up our own standard of
right and wrong, and Judge people ?cC?rtfr
ingly; to measure tho enjoyment of others
by our own; to expect unformity of opin
ion in this world; to look for judgment
and experience in youth; to endeavor to
mould all dispositions alike; to yield to
j immaterial trifles; to look for perfection
in our own actions; to worry ourselves and
others with what can not be remedied; not
to alleviate all that needs alleviation as
far as lies in our power; not to make al
lowances for the infirmities of others; to
consider everything impossible that we
can not perform; to believe only what our
finite minds, can grasp; to expect to ba
able to understand everything." ? Ex
Tattooing Abolished In Japan.
The Japanese government, in its anx
iety to complete the occidentalism of the
nation, is passing very paternal measures.
' Its latest piece of legislation prohibits the
favorite practice of tattooing. No doubt
the habit is a little barbarous, but it
boasts on honorable antiquity, and its re
sults are extremely picturesque, as was
shown by the Greek nobleman who exhib
ited the charms of his figured person to
Londoners a year or two ago. The sup
pression of art?tic development Is seldom
advisable, and, except in the case of sump
tuary laws, the limit of state interference
are surely reached when the right of per
sonal adornment is infringed. And tattoo
ing can scarcely be styled sumptuous,
though doubtless one effect of its abol
ition will be to throw a number of artists
out of employment. But what seems to
prove a graver objection to tho new law
is that tho Japanese, without the assist
ance of the family totem pricked on the
skin, will experience considerable tlifli
culty In distinguishing one another.?St.

Mrs. Washington never entered the room,
but wont up on tho third floor to a little
hip-rooted room, which she never left
from that time to the day of her death,
which followed eighteen months later.
When asked the rep-son for choosing out
of the whole mansion this mean little
room, sho said it was because from that
window only could she see Washington's
tomb. During the little while she survived
him her chair was always placed at that
window, and even from her deathbed she

Tho Power of the Washington Hand Pi cas.
A large man with a moustache brooding
over his mouth like some great national sor
row visited The Bell office this week. Ho
was traveling for an eastern house which
makes a specialty of printing materials and
sight drafts. He tried to sell us a large press
with wheels on it, and a strongly made and
binding chattel mortgage attachment.
Ho spoke very highly of this latter feature
and said their mortgages wero never known
to break Ho said the mortgages thoy were
now putting in for printers in the northwest
were alike satisfactory, to themselves and tho
sheriff. Ho also spoke incidentally of the
press itself, and we gathered that it was to be
sot up and fed with whito paper, which would
como out nicely printed with tariff editorials
and original clippings. We judged that
either a Democratic or Republican press
could bo ordered and that there would be no
extra charge for an attachment to ran in an
Our next impulse was to seize a pen and
write out a cheek sufficiently able-bodied to
cover the cost of recording the mortgage.

from the dark, cast-iron countenance of the
