being i:? tstaff. The estab
lishment. ;! though all its appointments
are excellent, is no1 very well patronized,
probably b.-causo its tariff is too high for
Berlin. The hotel tables d'hote of this
city mainly differ from those of the famil
iar German watering places in the com
pany using less cosmopolitan. At the
quieter ones considerable sociability pre
vails, helped, no doubt, by the old custom
of the landlord taking the head of the
table and dining with the guests. The
Berliner loves soups, of which he has a
large variety. Some of the most favored
"stippen" are "Feiner Gries in Milch"
(milk tea wirh eggs floating on top of it),
"ouppu von Rindfleisch mit gebackeneni
Mark'.' (beef tea with bulls of marrow,
eggs, an:! bread crumbs).
GEItMAK NATIONAL IUSIIES.
There are a number of German national
dishes, the merits of which can not be
gainsaid. Goose with stuffing of pounded
chestnuts, prunes and apples mixed with
calf's liver, onions, eggs, and various
spices, is a standard dish at'most restau
rants of the city. Yen can also have par
tridge c? okeil .'md wrapped up in vine
leaves, with rashers of bacon, and fowls
cooked in jelly. Roast partridges with
'sauerkraut is a good variation of the
French p^rdrix aux choux. Rehbruten
(venisou) with cream sauce is not to be
despised, and smoked Pommeraninn goose
breasts, Westphalia hams, Brunswick
sausages, and sundry other German house
dishes, many of which are also exported,
have gained a world-wide renown. The
partiality of the Germans for beer appeals
in several departments of cookery. Beer
soup is common enough, and so is beer
sauce, especially with carps and eels, for
which the best of "weiss beer" is used.
Beef stewed in beer aud flavored with
spices is a favorite dish. Among Kalte
schaleu (cold drinks) "Bier Kaltechalea"
holds the first place. Every known veg
etable, when cooked plain, i> eaten cold as
a salad, besides which there is herring
salad* with the fish chopped fine mixed
with potatoes, onions, apples, and pepper,
and moistened with .od, vinegar, and
To wash down the miscellaneous solidj
there is a choice of very different wines,
Eeer, which has supplemented wines
at the dinner tables of some of the
best Vienna hotels, is not countenanced
by the higher class restaurateurs and hotel
keepers of Berliu, with whom the con
Eumption of wine is a matter of stern ex
pectation. Tiie average Berliner in his
judgment of wine is guided largely by the
label 0:1 the bottle and the seal on the
The time lor dinner at the principal ho
tels is 6 o'clock. A very fair dinner can be
Lad for $1.25. The higher class restau
rants. Tutor den Linden, Wilhelmstrasse,
Bellevnestrasse, and the West End, are
the test places for becoming acquainted
with the current of public, opinion. At
these a good dinner, without wine, can be
had for seventy-live .cents and upward.
There are hundreds of le^s expensive din
ing places in Berlin, and an excellent din
ner may evcu be obtained at some res
taurants Cor twenty-live cents.
At all these establishments table nap
kins are supplied, iiut generally of tissue
paperwit.ii a colored ornamental border,
not only because paper is cheaper than
linen, but as a protection against pilfer
ing. So common are paper table napkins
iu Berlin that the manufacturers adver
tise them regularly in the newspapers at
the rate of d2 a thousand, about five for a
TBE GOLDEN SAUSAGE.
An enterprising proprietor of one of
these popular restaurant has Instituted
what he call the "Dinner of the golden
sausage," the great attraction of which is
the insertion in every thirtieth sausage
lor his guests of a small gold coin (about
JI), which becomes tho property of the
indlvi lual to whose lot it chances to fall.

How Peppermint la Raised.
Along the banks of Ganargua rivoi',
which flows through the southern portion
! cf. Wayne county, may be seen at this
. season of tho year lurge fields of green
j colored plants about eight Inches in hlght
I extending over an extensive area. To a
j botanist inentha peperita is the name by
which it is known, but to the world iu
general it is peppermint. Iu this compara
| tively small area seven-eighths of all tho
peppormint in the world is raised. Tha
? low, mucky land, is plowed in the spring.
I It is then laid off in furrows eighteen
inches apart, and sets, portions of old
plants, ure planted closely together in tho
row. This is done early in April. The
: roots ore transplanted every other year.
It takes about eight square rods of roots
as they lie upon the ground to plant nn
aero. Tho roots that are planted this
after the crop in gathered, will be trans
planted In every other row for next year's
crop. The liest year's crop is always the
best, because the plant is then the freest
from weeds. Usually they are allowed to
run only two* years, after which tho
ground is plowed under. When the plants
have grown to about two and ono-half
feet in h'rrht they ripen.
The harvest begins usually in the last
of August. It is cut liko clover, Owlth a
cradle, and raked into cocks, when It is
allowed to wilt a little before it is taken
to the distillery. The process of distilla
tion continues to tho last of October. Tho
, plant is brought from the fields In large
wagons and tightly packed in stcam
' tight vats. The steam is let into the bot
tom of the vat, and the oil from the
plants thus volitalizcd. The oily vapor
and steam pass through a condensing
worm into a receiver, where the oil, be
i ing lighter than water, is dipped off and Is
then put in tin cans holding twenty
pounds and taken to the refinery, where
it is refined and put into twenty-one ounce
bottles in a case, labeled and shipped to
, all parts of the civilized world.?Cor. Buf
The Penalty of Position.
The pictorial treasures of the great Eng
lish houses are accessible to the public,
, but I once passed through a stately castle
i in which 1 was a stranger, and determined
I never to repeat the experience, for the
housekeeper took me into rooms where
the work baskets of the ladies still littered
the tables; the very book? they had been
reading were left unclosed, and I saw
their rustling garments leaving by one
door as I eutered at another. The thought
that I had driven the family from their
own occupations or amusements marred
all the pleasure I received. It happened a
few days afterward that I wa3 invited
to the same house, and I told the ladies
how guilty I felt for my Intrusion. But
they forgave me.
For the high English are very generous
about their works of art, their parks,
i their mansions, their historical collec
tions. Nearly all give them up on ono
day of the week to the world. They call
it a "show day;" tho houso is a "show
house," and tho annoyance of the exhibl
? tion must be very considerable. But they
! take this as they do the publicity of all
their life, their exposure to observation
and criticism?as the penalty of thoir posij
t ion. They expect to bo conspicuous, to
have their houses examined, their private
history known. Their lineage is set down
iii the peerage, and-the age of every great
ludy-is declared In the books for all the
world to road. Not a few recognize that
they have obligations because of their
riink and their grandeur. Not only aro
thoy willing that their pictures and
statuary shall be seen, but the poor often
have a day in the week when they may
hold picnics in the park. Even the queen,
with all her love of seclusion, allows
Windsor castle to. bo inspected when she
is not there, and privileged strangers may
visit her private apartments, a stretch of
r.:ood nature which not many democrats
would emulate.?Adam Badeau's Letter.

A curious survival cf ordeal supersti
tion still prevails to a very lurge extent in
southern Russia. When a theft is com
mitted in u household the servauts aro
summoned together and a sorceress Is sent
for. Should no confession be made by the
guilty party the sorceress rolls up as
many little bulls of bread as there are
suspected persons present. She then
takes one of these balls, and addressing
ihe nearest servant, uses this formula:
"If you have committed the theft the ball
will sink to the bottom of tho vase, but if
you are innocent it will tlo.it on the
water." The accuracy of this trial, how
s seldom tested, as the guilty person in
variably confesses before his turn arrives

Preventing the Escape of Criminals.
The difficulty of preventing the escape
of criminals has at all times grieved the
friends of justice, but tho most radical so
lution of the problem has probably been
devised in Gazi, a seaport town claimed
by both the Emir of Belang and the sttl- I
tan of Zanzibar. According to a corres
pondent the municipal authorities, who
enjoy a local autonomy, have for years
saved the expense of burglar-proof jails
by hamstringing their malefactors and
teaching them to earn a living by somo
sedentary occupation. Besides being use
ful, the consequent lameness prevents a
relapse, or at least the filght of a sus
pected backslider. ?Exchange.
A Machine for Working Kainlc.
A machine for working the ramie plant
has just been completed in Pittsburg
which is pronounced a success. The green |
stems are introduced between rollers at
one end of the machine, and, after passing
between various others which hueklc,
stretch, scrape and beat?the whole pro
cess being aided by rt flowing jet of water
which acts as a cushion, lubricant, and
I lux? Hie liber comes out at the other end

that the machine will make thousands of
acres of waste lowland in the United :
States capable of a annual yield.?
When the Voice Fails.
Dr. Morell Mackenzie, in his last book,
"The Hygiene of the Vocal Organs," tells
cs that the speaking voice usually begins
:'o lose power and volume at between 50
and CO years of age. There is a curious
corroborutlon of Dr. Mackenzio In Mr.
John Brlght's collected speeches; for in
the course of his great speech delivered
in the rotunda at Dublin on Nov. 9, 1880,
when Mr. Bright was 55 years old, he
said: "I am very sorry that my voice Is
not what it was; and when I think of tho
work that is to be done, sometimes I feel
it Is a pity we grow old so fa?t."
