HOW TO TALK WELi_.
An InterestingChat with Boy? and Glrla
ou tho Art of Conversation.
If one might choose between being
very handsome, with tolerable man?
ners, mid being plain, with a One, well
modulated voice and better manners
than ordinary, ho -would wisely prefer
the latter. "We do not feel the charm
of -well taught speech, because it is so
seldom heard. But onco felt it has a
spell which lingers in the mind forever.
The beauty of the face strikes the eye,
the tone of the voico stirs the heart.
A line voice, winch does noi mean a
loud one by any means, i* always a dis- j
tinct" one, which can bo unerringly
hoard without effort of the speaker. !
An indistinct utterance is always a
sign of mental or physical deficiency,
which ought to bo promptly mastered.
And it takes very hard work often to
get the better of .this slavenly pronun?
ciation. Learn to speak. It is easier
when you come down in the morning
to grunt in answer to good morning
than to say the two words, but you
must not allow yourself this piggish,
boorish habit of grunting hi place of
speech. Neither, John Alexander, must
you let your sleepy, dreamy, unsocial
temper control you so that you speak
hi a dull, thick tone at the back of the
throat, which is of all others the most
trying voice to understand.
Slow speed] is an intolerable affront
to others and waste of time. 1 went to
church yesterday and sat out a sermon,
which wasted thirty-five minutes of the
possible forty years I have yet to live,
listening to such novel and profound
remarks as these: "Animals are en?
dowed with life," "Human beings have
reason," spoken in a ponderous way, as
if the speaker's wits were wool gather?
ing each sentence. You may bclievo I
would not have wasted so much of my
precious life waiting on such slug?
gish mud flowing if the sexton had not
seated me t-.vi far up the aisle to get
out without making a procession of
myself before the congregation. You
must le:irn to talk to the point and
with celerity?that is, not chattering,
but with sum >;>; h, ready How of language
without jerks or confusion.
To speak sweetly, make the toilet of
your mouth and nose with care three
times a day. There should bo three
minutes after each meal given to per?
sonal care, rinsing the mouth, clearing
the throat and using the handkerchief,
which should then make its appearance
as seldom as possible. A habit of deep
breathing also clears the voice and gives
it fullness and softness at command.
What to say. and how to say it. is all
there is to the art of conversation. True,
this is like saying that earth, air and
water are all there is to the world, as if
it were simple as beeswax But it is
something to know when you want to
begin to improve talk, and that is by
(hiding out just what you want to say.
The other day a very bright woman
asked me how she should write an ad?
vertisement for a merchant. I asked
her for an idea of what she wanted to
say, and the first sentence she uttered
was the announcement complete. It
was simple, concise, perfect. Happily
the forms of polite speech ?'ire laid down
for us?the "good morning" for those
we meet with whom we are not inti?
mate, the "how do you do" for friends
People don't always feel themselves
the central interest hi creation or wish
to talk about themselves. They are
rather complimented by talking about
their tastes rather than their affairs or
personal interests. You see the safe
topics can only be indicated by teach?
ing yourself pretty decidedly what not
to say. Avoid questions if you can.
It sounds better to say, "I hope you are
not tired with your l ong walks," or '"you
must be tired with it.'' than to ask
"Are you tired r" or "Have you come
far,'" Take everything creditable for
granted of your companion. Don't ask
perforce, "Do you like music?" in a
crude way, but "You are musical,"
with the very faintest qiustioidng in?
flection, or "You play tennis. I sup?
pose?" And if your unhappy respond?
ent does nor understand either of these
things, do not make him any more un?
happy by pause or comment, but turn
to something pleasanter for him.
Learn all the forms of courteous and
complimentary speech, but use them
witii distinction. You should know
when to say that you will be pleased to
accept a courtesy or attention, when
you will be- happy" to do the same,
and when you will be glad, in the open
heartedness of frank intimacy. Learn
the shades of civility; they give valuo
to intercourse and meaning to cordial?
ity when it'comes. Use thesalt and
spice of conversation freely, but be
shoice of your sugar, and. above all,
?on't bo oily! There are people so
unctuously polite that one near them
[eels like being careful for fear he gets
irrease on his clothes. One has to take
ill their smooth words with much salt.

How tho Cargoes from Tahiti Aro Han
tiled and Disposed Of.
Tho barkentino City of Papeete, from
Tahiti, is one of the regular line of
packets that trade directly between this
port and tho Society Islands, in the
South Pacific, carrying passengers,
freight and the French mails. Ono of
the vessels of the line leaves here for
Tahiti, under contract to cany the
mails, on the first day of each month.
From hero tho packets take full car?
goes of general merchandise, luxuries
and necessaries, for sale or barter
among the islands of tho Tahiti Archi?
pelago. On tho return voyage they
bring here consignments of mother of
pearl, oranges, vanilla, a little cotton,
edible fungus, and cocoanuts and
copra, the latter forming always tho
chief part of the cargo.
Few people who see the fresh cocoa
nuts exposed for sale at all the fruit and
vegetable stalls throughout the city, or
who uso the desiccated article in pastry
and confectionery, have any idea of the
large number that aro imported hero
every year. Ono month 70,000 cocoa
nuts were imported here, and the ag?
gregate importation for the past twelve
months was 1,1-13,000. They were han?
dled by three firms, who control all tho
shipments to this port, and who supply
tiie market as far east as the Mississippi.
The nuts sol! here at $25 to $30 a
When the arriving vessel is discharged
the nuts are piled up on the dock and
a number aro sold to dealers, who take
them with the husks. The rest aro !
tnken to the importers' warehouses,
where they are prepared for the market.
The tirst thing necessary is to tako off
the thick .external husk or rind. This
is done by a man called tho "busker."
The hunker stands up at his work. Be?
fore him he has firmly fixed upright in
a frame a sharp pointed steel instrument
about four feet long. It is fiat on the
side, and looks like a harpoon. On flu's
he impales the nut and so tears off tho
The work is quite laborious, as the
fibrous covering is very tough and
stringy. It would tako a novice about
ton minutes to husk ono nut, but mi
experienced busker can strip the rind
off of about 1,200 in one day. A
bu ?ker is paid $2 per day.
After being husked the good green
nuts, that is, those that havo not
sprouted, aro sold to tho retail fruit
dealers, who sell them for about ten
The sprouted ones are next taken into
an adjoining room, where they are pre
pared for the market. They are tlrst
put into a.steam chest for the purpose
of softening the hard, woody shell, in
order that it may be more easily bro?
ken by tho "opener." Tho steam chest
is about six feet square, and hi it are
placed from 1,500 to 2,000 nuts at a
time. They aro kept there an hour or
an hour and a half, and are then taken
while warm to the opening bench.
The "opener" takes tho nut in his
left hand and strikes the shell several
smart raps with his opening knife, an
instrument something like an oyster
opener on a largo scale. This cracks
the shell, which he then proceeds to
remove, taking great care, not to injure
tl ? nut A good opener can open 100
The kernel or nut is then taken to
the peeler, who, with a spoke shave,
p off, the brown skin, leaving tho
wlute meat. A peeler can peel from
sixty to seventy-five in an hour.
From tho peeler the nuts go to the
washtubs, where they are thoroughly
washed in hot water. They are then
cut in quarters and taken to the mills,
which are worked by machinery.
These mills are three in number, and
from them the nuts are turned out in
seven different fonns. Tho three
kinds principally turned out aro the
desiccated, for family use; another
coarser for bakers' use, and strips
which arc used by candy makers.
After leaving tho mills a certain
amount of granulated sugar is mixed
wiih i he ground nuts in strips, which
aro then laid in large, shallow pans
and placed in the driers, a series of
large wooden boxes heated by steam
pipes. Here they remain for twelve
or fourteen hours, being carefully
watched meanwhile, .and when thor?
oughly dried are placed in barrels, box?
es or tins, and aro then ready for the
The external husk, from which is ob?
tained the coarse fiber which is largely
used in some parts of the world in the
manufacture of ropes, cordage, brushes,

have been mado to utilize it in this
state for various purposes, but without
The importers stato that they have
to leave tho husk on the nuts on the
voyage, or the nuts would otherwise
Copra is the kernel of the coeoauut,
which is broken into pieces and then
allowed to dry in the sun. It is esti?
mated that 1,000 full sized nuts will
yield upward of 500 pounds of copra,
from which twenty-five gallons of oil
can be obtained. Tho oil is a white
substance, with a rather disagreeable
odor, mid is used chiefly in the manu?
facture of candles mid soap.
There are two companies, both lo?
cated in this city, that express the oil
from tho copra. They work up about
1,000 tons of copra annually, while the
amiual importation is about 1,200 tons.
The surplus is shipped to Europe.
After the oil has been pressed from
the nut the residue is 6old for cattle
and chicken food.?San Francisco Bul?

A Shoplifter's Trick.
New York*khoplif tors have more than
one way to secure their booty. A lady
in one of the first eln.ss dry goods houses
gave a 82 bill in payment :or an eighty
five cent purchase at one of the count?
ers, and being in a hurry walked on to
another part of the store, having first
told the saleswoman she would return
shortly for the change and parcel. She
did So in perhaps twenty minutes, was
told there was nothing for her; that
her friend had taken it.
"Why," she said; "there was no 0110
It then transpired that a well dressed
woman who had walked away by the
side of the purchaser hud returned in
about live minutes asking for the par?
cel, glibly recounting its contents. "A
yard ami three quarters of black and |
white niching, costing eighty-five cents,
for which my friend gave a $2 bill."
The girl was convinced, as she had i:? <
ticed the two walk off together, and de?
livered the parcel and change.
A floor walker and detective were
called up. Both recognized the trick
as a well known one, "against which,"
said the floor walker, "there is really
I no adequate protection, so long :us
j ladies keep up the habit of running

I for the issue of transfer cards is to
guard against just this sort of thing,
if a shopper only expects to purchase
two or three things she may, if in haste,
have these follow her, and pay for

lifters often secure the parcels and
change without the ruse of posing as a
friend, for it is difficult for a saleswo?
man at a busy hour to identify readily
a purchaser of twenty minutes previous.
Ladies themselves are often puzzled
and will come back to a counter ask?
ing, uncertainly: 'Are you the ono I
bought such and such articles from?'
Yet they expect a saleswoman to re?
member perfectly. That they cannot
and do not is shown by the frequency
with which this trick is successfully
played."?-New York Sun.
Tho l>ate of the Creation of Adam
But of all who gave themselves up
to these chronological .studies tho man
who exerted tho most powerful influ?
ence upon tho dominant nations of
Christendom was Archbishop Usher.
In lG?? he published bis "Annalsof the
Ancient ami New Testaments," and it
at once became the greatest authority
for all English speaking peoples. Usher
was a man of deep and wido theologi?
cal learning, powerful in controversy;
and his careful conclusion, after years
of the most profound study of the He?
brew Scriptures, was that man was ere
ated L??1 years before tho Christian
era. Iiis verdier was widely received
as final; his dates were inserted in the
margins of the authorized version oi
tho English Bible mid wore soon prac
tically regarded as equally inspired
with tho sacred text itself. To ques?
tion them seriously was to risk prefer?
ment in the church and reputation in
the world at large.
The same adhesion to the Hebrew
Scriptures which had infiuenci d Usher,
brought leading men of the older church
to the same view; men who would have
burned eacli other at the stake for their
diileroiic.'s on oilier points, agreed to
this: Melanchthouand Tostatns, Light
foot and Jansen. Salmenmand Se.-digcr.
Petavius and Kepler; inquisitors ;uul

and rabbis, stood together in the

The Cost ?>f Newspapers.
From a suggestive article on news?
papers, by Eugene M. Camp, In The
Century, we quote us follows: '"What
is the total annual cost of the whole?
sale purcliasers of news?namely, the
publishers ?of the entire news product
of the United States.' An answer to
this question would be of interest, but
it has never been answered. For sev?
eral years I have been gathering infor?
mation upon which to base an estimate.
Publishers have uniformly extended me
every courtesy: nevertheless I find it an
exceedingly difficult quantity to arrive
at, and for my figures I do not claim
absolute accuracy. Publishers in this
country annually expend something
near the following stuns for news:
For press illspat,-lip<. $;,S-J.i.000
For special dlspatclj-.'S. ?,350,000
For local news. 12^600,000
'?The business of the Associated
Press, a mutual concern which pays
nothing for its news, and which serves
its patrons at approximate cost,
amounts to $1,250,000 per aimmn; and
that of the United Press, a stock cor?
poration, is $150,000 per annum: The
former aims to provide news about all
important events, in which work $120,
000 in telegraph tolls is expended;
while the latter endeavors, above all
else, to provide accounts of even's oc?

T!io Most Cosily Bean.
The vanilla bean is the costliest bean
that ever grew. It flourishes in Mexi?
co, chiefly in the states of Papantla
and Misantly. It grows wild, and is
gathered and marketed by the natives,
who sell them just as they come from
the forest at from $10 to 812 per 100
pounds. After drying and curing them,
the dealers sell at about 810 per pound;
one-hundredth part of that sum is all
the poor savages get for gathering
them. They are used by druggists and
confectioners and are reckoned among
the important articles of commerce.?
