A ROYAL BOOK' UYER.
The Purchase, of Diderot's Library
by Catherine II. of RUssia.
Eupress Catherine II. of Russia was
a great reader and a lover of books.
One of her services to letters in Russia
was the purchase of the libraries of
Voltaire and Diderot. She was a warm
friend and admirer of these French
philosophers, and their work interested
her because she was eager to learn new
theories of politics and government.
Voltaire's library of about 7,000 vol
umes is now a part of the Russian im
perial library In the Hermitage palace,
ani in the hall devoted to it is Hou
don's statue of Voltaire.
The story of Catherine's purchase of
Diderot's library is interesting. It is
creditable to her tact and her generos
ity. Diderot named 115,000 as the
price of his library. Catherine II. of
fered him 116,000 and named as a con
dition of the bargain that her purchase
should remain with Diderot until his
death. Thus Diderot, without leaving
Paris, became Catherine's librarian In
his own library. As her librarian he
was given a yearly salary of 1,000.,
One year this salary was not paid.
Then Catherine wrote to her librarian
that she could not have him or her li
brary suffer through the negligence of
a treasurer's clerk and that she should
send him the sum that she had set
aside for the care and increase of her
library for fifty years. At the end of
that period she would make. new ar
rangements. A check for ?25,000 ac
companied this letter.
The Literary Chap In Finance.
"I know a literary chap, good writer
and all that, but with absolutely no
business sense, who suddenly decided
the thing for him to do was to start a
bank account," said the secretary of a
financial institution. "He came In to
see me about it. I asked him how
much he had. and he said he had saved
$59. I told him we rarely started ac
counts on such small deposits, but
would make an exception in his case
to encourage thrift and school him in
"He went through the preliminaries
nervously, signed the signature card,
put his money in and got a nice new
bank book. By that time he was all
flustered. They gave him a check book,
and he decided he would have to have
some money for present use. The re
ceiving teller Introduced him to the
paying teller, and he Inquired the
procedure of checking out money. The
paying teller explained at length. Then
my literary friend went over to the
desk and wrote a check for his entire
$59, got the money and went out"
Comparative Ages of Animals.

Dog and Cat.
The effect of a 'dog on a cat's tail is
well worth study. When a cat encoun
ters a strange dog the tail immediately
assumes an upright pos~im. the back
becomes highly arched @ I ibe fur
stands out straight all ow the body.
This sudden change disumys' the dog,
who brings himself to a halt, and the
two regard each other steadfastly.
But If the dog should turn his gaze
away for a fraction of a second there Is
a swish and a bound, and the cat has
isappeared over a fence or up a tree.
Stimulated by the presence of a dog,
ats have been known to climb to such
heights that they were unable to de
scend the way they went up.

U D DtN POLICUE.
They Are Permitted to Impose smatl
Fines on Ofenders.
One adv:u: ::cerucs to the respec
table inembevr of the community from
the minuteness with which the Dres
den police look into the affairs of every
inhabitant of the city. If he is a care
ful man :nd always carries papers
which may serve to establish his iden
tity he Is practically immune from the
indignity of be4ng arrested and march
ed off to the police station unless, in
deed, he commits some especially hei
nous crime. Does he drive faster than
the law permits, does he cross a bridge
on the left hand side, he is stopped by
the guardian of law and order and re
quested to give his name. If he has
his papers with him the policeman may
then and there impose a fine of from
1 to 3 marks. If then he admits that
he is in the wrong and pays the fine
the incident is closed. If, however, he
wishes to appeal from the policeman's
decision he may do so. Even In that
case he is not arrested, but a day or
two later he is notified to appear in
court and answer to the charge against
him. But then if he is found guilty
the lowest fine that can be imposed
is 3 marks. That this custom of per
mitting the policeman personally to im
pose small fines is little understood by
foreigners is shown by a remark made
to me by a gentleman who had lived
In Germany the greater part of his life
and in Dresden for a number of years.
In reply to my inquiry as to whether
there was ever any question of cor
ruption in the police department he re
"No; none whatever as far as the
higher officers are concerned. The In
dividual men, however, may be bribed
occasionally. For instance, if I were
to walk on the grass in the Grosser
garten and a policeman caught me at
it I would give him a mark or two,
and that would end the matter."-Pbil
By Its Operation Mr. Culpepper Came
Into His Own.
It is the story of a polite and polish'ed
Virginia gentleman and his landlady,
also polite, polished and a Virginian.
It ralned on a day not long ago, and
when Mr. Culpepper looked for his
umbrella In the terra cotta tile in the
hall it was not there. Mr. Culpepper
was far too courteous to say that some
body had taken it. lie didn't even say
it was gone. le merely looked at the
terra cotta tile and cherished regrets.
It was raining. and he had no umbrel
la. The courteous landlady came upon
him and divined his trouble.
"Haven't you any umbrella?" she
asked. "Oh, that's too bad! You
mustn't think of going out without
one. Just wait a moment till I get you
Mr. Culpepper protested, but when
Virginan meets Virginian courtesy is
bound to prevail in the end. The land
lady went upstairs and presently re
turned with an umbrella.
"There," said she. "Take It. 1 shan't
need it today, and you are perfectly
welcome to it, perfectly welcome."
And the grateful Mr. Culpepper
stepped out and unrolled an umbrella
which was the very one he had lost.
Courteous Virg'nia gentleman, courte
ous Virginia landlady, and you needn't
ask me hovw the umbrella came to
change owners, for I don't know. Nei

Diagnosing Under Dif~eulties.
Dr. Sundberg, former consul to Bag

venture that befel him in a Moham

wives of a rich merchant fell sick, and
Dr. Sundberg was called in to prescribe
for her. With a pardonable scientific
interest the western physician waited.

may see the face of a woman and live
or, more accurately, no woman may
unveil her face to any man save her

terest aforesaid deeply aroused, the dip
lomatic doctor insists. The difficulty is
at length solved by the eunuch In chief.
Though the woman may not lawfully
unveil herself, the doctor under the cir
umstances might perhaps be allowed
to crawl in under the gunnysack and so
examine the telltale tongue. "Delight

so. Then after the most thorough diag

The Origin cf starching.
The course of history carries us back
no further than the year 1564 for the
origin of' starching in London. It was
in that year that Mistress Van der
Plasse came with her husband from
Flanders to the English metropolis "for
their greater safety" and there pro
fessed herself a starcher. The best
housewives of the time were not long
n discovering the excellent whiteness
of the "Dutch linen," as it was called,
ad Mistress Plasse soon had plenty of
good paying clients. Some of these be
gan to send her ruffs of lawn to starch,
which she did so excellently well that
It became a saying that If any one sent
her a r-ff' made of a spider's web she
would be able to starch it. So greatly
did her reputation grow that fashion
ble dames went to her to learn the art
and mystery of starching, for which
they gladly paid a premium of ?4 or ?5,
and for the secret of seething starch
they paid gladly a further sum of 20
shillings. _____ ____
Byron's Fatted Goose.
One of the stories concerning the
traditional dish of roast goose on MI
chalmas day refers to Lord Byron,
says an English newspaper. The poet
always insisted in keeping up old cus
toms in small things, such as having
hot cross buns on Good Friday and
roast goose on Mlchaelmas day. This
last fancy had a grotesque result-when
he was in Italy. After buying a goose
and fearing it might be too leani Byron
fed it every day for a ,month previous
to the festival, so that the poet ,and
the bird became so mutally attached
that when Sept 21) arrived he could
not kill It, but bought another and had
the pet goose swung in a cage under
his carriage when he traveled.

Catarrh of the
For many years It has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
and dyspepsia, but the truth Is exactly the
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re
peated attacks of Indigestion inflames the
mucous membranes linIng the stomach and
exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caus
ing the glands to secrete mucin Instead of
the juices of natural digestion. This is
called Catarrh of the Stomach.
