CELEBRATED TRENT AFFAIR

The "Trent affair," whiclTcame
of 49 3oar3 ago November', ''lSCl
came very near bcing'oneof ihe
thing9 that chSngo tho wholo course
of history. The Confederate com
missioners, Mason and Slidcll, were
on their way from Havana to Eng
land on board tho English mail
steamer Trent. On the morning of
tho eighth of November Capt.
Charles Wilkes, m command pf the
United States warship San Jacinto,
held up the Trent, forcibly took
from her tho Confederate commis
sioners and delivered them up to the
United States authorities at Fort
Then it was that William H. Sew
ard began one of the astutcst games
of diplomacy that tho history of the
world can show. With consummate
tact he managed to satisfy England
without the slightest jolt to his coun
try's honor or pride. Returning tho
commissioners to tho British author
ities as a "courtesy," rather than as
a "dutyS&6 got out of tho difficulty
without a scintilla of an "apology"
and without so much as an intima-
ion ol any confession of wrong on
';tio. part of his government. .
RACE SUICIDE AND FLATS
Law Penalizes All Landlords
.'( . Who Discriminate Against
, - Children.
The nation? that invented French
nats vja wnicn is not guiltless re
igarding race suicide has "be ne
frightened regarding the cumuli
effect of its in restraint; of popula
tion, and , is devising a remedy.
Last year deaths exceeded births in
France by 28,205, and the deputies
have been introducing laws about it
.ever since. The latest 'ono is report
ed bycabje, and penalizes all renters
of. apartments who discriminate
against children, hoping : thus to
make life easier for parents. Any
landlord who Tefuses to let apart
ments to parents is liable to a fine
of from 25 to' fc, francs, and to be
douh1 upon a second offense.
The motive was praised in the
deputies, but the details were criti
cised. It wa3 proposed as.a substi
tute that whenever flats failed to
, have a child population of GO to
each 20 families the landlord should
be-fined according to the deficiency
in the proportion of children. Thus
it was hoped to set the landlords
bidding for parents who would save
the landlord from fines. r

WHY THEY GOT CITY'S FREEDOM.
Extracts from old records, show
ing how people had earned tho honor
n former days, were read at Conter-
ury by Alderman Mason when the
mayor and es-mayor wero granted
the freedom of the city. Ono citizen
received the freedom for "undertak

Michaelmas feast," another "because
he cured Nicholas. Johnson's leg,"
and a third "becauso he married a
widow with a largo family." Pall

Paris, Dec. 29.A newspaper here
presents to its readers an account of
the methods employed by the Jap
anese dentist, which although per
haps not quite new, is of sufficient
interest to warrant its publication.
The dentist draws teeth with his
fingers without the aid of any inscru-,
ments. He takes the head of the
patient in such a way that the mouth
must remain open. Putting the
thumb and index finger into the pa
tient's mouth the Jap draws five,
six, or seven teeth in a minute,- as
the case may be, the patient during
this process being unable to clo3e his
mouth. This remarkable powess in
extracting teeth is attributed to the
training the dentist undergoes in
early youth. To strengthen the fing
ers for their later work the tyro
commences by practicing on nails
which are driven into a plank on the
ground. He has to pull out the nails
without moving the board. At the
beginning of this nail pulling, a soft
wood is used, and then harder wood
up to oak or something still harder.
An apprentice is not considered pro
ficent in his art until he can draw
the nails from the hardest wood
without moving it.

How He Proved It.

which he could get home. Accord

him his eyesight was bad. The doc

"How can you prove to me that
your eyesight is bad?"
Pat looked about the room and at
" Well, doctor, do ye see that nail
upon the wall ?"
"Yes," replied the doctor.
"Well, then," replied Pat, "I
can't." (Chicago Tribune.
