POSTAGE STAMP FAR ]
IT BEGAN AS A HARMLESS AMUSE?
MENT AND BECAME A MANIA..
Millions of Dollars Arc Locked Dp Iu ltlls
of Paper That Have No ltcal Value?Sonio
of tho It a re Specimens For Which Fabu?
lous Prloca An' Asked and tllvcn.
Tho postage Btauip niaiiin is 0110 of
tho most curious of human fads, re?
marks a Now York writer. A collection
of coins is at the most worth tho woight
of tho metal. Not so a collection of
stamps. Tho fashion may go out as it
enmo in, and then tho stamps will be
only so much waste paper.
Tho fad broke out in 1801 in tho form
of a fow sporadic cases among school?
boys and maiden ladies. It was not only
a harmless fad, but in tho ease of tho
sohoolboys it was oven an educative
one. It proved tho easiest, tho pleasant
est and the most efficacious way of
driving knowledgo of geography Into
the adolescent mind.
But now that thoso first fow sporadio
attacks havo developed into something
alarmingly like an epidemic ono begins
to speculate whether tho craze of the
philatelist, is not a distinct bar to hu?
man progress, inasmuch as it consumes
a largo amount of brain force and vital
enorgy that might bettor bo turned into
other and more useful channels of ac?
tivity.
In tho United States alono there is an
organization called the American Phila?
telic, association, which numbers 1,000
members. But this represents only a
BTnnll fraction of the philatelists actual?
ly in the country.
The greatest and most famous of liv?
ing philatelists ? considered merely
from the philatelist point of view?is
M. Philippe do Ferrari, a dignified,
courteous and white haired old gentle?
man who lives in Paris. lie is a son of
the lato Duchess de Gallier a, who was
also a passionate lover <>f stamps.
His collection is valued at $500,000.
He has been known to pay $500 for an
album which contained only a single
stain]) that ho coveted. For more valu- j
able collections ho has never limited his
expenditures.
Next to tho Ferrari collection comes
that of Baron Arthur do Rothschild, |
which is SO valuable that its owner, with
the trno jealousy of the collector, re?
serves the pages containing his rarest
treasures for tho delectation only of
himself and his most intimate friends.
Now, what constitutes the enormous
value of these collections? It is not tho
number of the specimens. There uro
more than G,000 different varieties of
stamps now actually in existence. A
certain number can bo obtained at com?
paratively light expense.
But. tho rarer ones command largo
prices. Novit mind whether tho rarity
Wan created by ago or accident.
The MacMahon stamp iu Franco is
tho blue rose, tho unattainable ideal of
the collector. When tho marshal was
president of France, his wifo was anx?
ious to see his imago set in stamps.
Designs wero accordingly prepared,
but the postal commissioner rejected
them and adopted another design. Nev?
ertheless there is n legend that somo of
these MacMahon stamps got into circu?
lation. If it single specimen over turns i
up, it will be priceless.
Another lost pleiad is a postage stamp |
issued by tho government of British j
Guiana in 1850. It has disappeared from I
the market, and specimens held in tho j
hands of private collectors are valued
at $250.
A set of four !s."><> stamps also issued
in British Guiana bring anywhere from
$100 to $500, and a set of four 1852
Hawaiian stamps are valued at $1,500.
The 15 and .'it) cent reunion stamps
bring ?500. The New Brunswick 5 cent
stamp, with tho bond of O'Connoll, iR
rarely parted with under $150.
Rare is also tin black Canadian 12
penny stamp, valued at $125.
But the collector does not stop nt le?
gitimate issues of/ stamps. He gives
fancy prices for varieties of shades, for
perforations, errors and watermarks.
At a recent stamp exhibition in Vien?
na an enthusiastic collector named Gi
welb displayed with pride the "error"
of France?a stamp of 25 centimes
printed in blue instead of black, tho
"error" of Afghanistan and a stamp
with a missing ornament in a corner.
Dr. Mnllinoim of Vienna had even
more wondrous delights to unfold, for
he was the proud possessor of tho two
rare "errors'' of the Capo of Good
Hope, stamps of 1 penny and 4 pence
respectively, which aro blue instead of
red and red instead of blue.
Such "errors" fetch a very high
price, kept down only by tho uneasiness
of creating new "values" by wanting
misprinting.
No article on philately could bo com?
plete without some uoticoof tho 1,000,
000 postage stamps myth. This still
survives in vague and uncertain forms
iu the rural districts, where it is believ?
ed that some vast benefit, financial or
other, will ivccruo to any ono who col?
lects 1,000,000 stamps and forwards
them to the proper address. But the
proper address is never known.
Incongruous.
A clerical correspondent of one of
tho church papers relates that a certain
prelato had gr eat difficulty in suppress?
ing his laughter at tho consecration of
a church tho other day owing to the de?
vice on ono of the school banners which
was carried in the procession before the
eervieo. This banner was adornod with
a very fierce looking lion, with terrible
claws and teeth, while underneath him
was the legend, "Suffer little children
to come unto me. "?London Truth.
Yellow Fever.
There is a marked peculiarity about
yellow fever which distinguishes it from
most epidemics. It is essentially a dis
easo of a hot climate, and it takes a cer?
tain amount and duration of beat to
awaken it to life. It is said that it can
novor prevail where Indian corn will
not ripen.

When a member of mi Egyptian fam?
ily died, nil tho relatives put on mourn?
ing and abstained from baths, wino and
delicacies of all kinds from 40 to GO
days, according to tho rank of tho per?
son deceased. Death iu one respect put
an end to all distinctions that had pro
vailed in lifo, and king und slavo were
j subject to the same law.
j Tho record of the lifo of tho deceased
had to bo oxamiued by a tribunal of 42
judges before he could bo given burial
with his ancestors. If tho deeds of his
lifo proved that he was worthy of
burial, his body was carried across tho
gacred lake, of which each province had
ouo, and was there permitted to rest. If
tho judges found him unworthy, even
j though he belonged to tho highest rank,
ho oould not bo buried with his ances?
tors. The body was returned to his rela?
tives and was buried oil the side of the
loko opposite to the burial placo of tho

The belief of tho Egyptians in a fu?
ture state of existence gave rise to tho
practioo of embalming tho dead. They
wished to carefully preserve tho body,
so that tho soul upon its return to its
former abode at tho end of all things
might find it ready for its reception.
Bodies were i mbalmed in three differ?
ent ways. Tho most oxpensivo and mag?
nificent method was used upon the bod?
ies of killers and other persons of dis?
tinguished rank, tho cost amounting to
a talent of silver, or$C10.
A number of persons wore employed
in tho process of embalming, and they
wero treated with great respect. They
filled the cavities of the body with
myrrh, cinnamon, spices and many
kinds of sweet smelling drugs.
After a certain time had elapsed the
body was swathed in lawn fillets, which
wero glued together with a kind of thin
gum, and then crusted over with costly
perfumes. By this mode of embalming
tho shape of the body, tho lineaments
of the face, the eyebrows and eyelashes
were preserved in their natural perfec?
tion. Bodii s thus embalmed aro what
wo now call Egyptian mummies.?Phil*

CHARACTER IN THE INSANE.
A Deeply Interesting Study, ^Though at
Times Attended With Sadness.
If it is deeply interesting to study
character among the insane, it is also at
times both saddening ;uul humiliating.
We often look with indulgence upon
what we call harmless vanity or a nat?
ural love of admiration in a rather friv?
olous girl, but look at the same girl
when by some accident or misfortune
the mental balance is overthrown. Now
she believes and does not hesitate to say
that she is perfectly beautiful, has an
exquisite figure, is in everyway charm?
ing and attractive and that every man
who sees her immediately fulls violently
in love with her. It is only im absurdly
exaggerated sense of self importnnoe
that produces the very common dolu
sion that tho patient is a king or a
queen, even a deity.
Again a natural humility and a tend?
ency to self depreciation are frequent?
ly exaggerated by disease into the do
lusion that the patient is an object of
dislike tuid contempt to'every one, that
ho has committed somo crime, and that
consequently ho is beyond redemption
and is reaarded with horror by all
around him. if he Is of n religious turn
of mind, he believes himself to be eter?
nally lost and sinks into a statt; of chron?
ic melancholy audnpathy. On the other
hand, a natural self reliance, no longer
controlled by common sense, cxpauds
into a boliof that tho patient has done

Court-nip In itunmu
Mr. Mortimer Menpos, in traveling
in the east in ser.vch of subjects, came
upon a curious form of courtship
Sketching one duy in Burma, ho no?
ticed a man a little distance off glaring
fiercely straight ahead of him at somo
object lit1 could not see from his posi?
tion. The man s;it with the same fixed
glare tho whole of the afternoon ami
was at it again the next morning. Mr.
Menpes had the curiosity to a-sk an
English visitor what it meant. Tho re?
ply was, "Oil, he is in love." Audit
was explained thill this was their meth?
od of courtship. The object of tho man's
attentive glare was a girl in a neighbor?
ing bazaar. When a man falls in love,
he has to seat himself at a certain dis?
tance from his adored ono and waits for
her to do the rest. If she looks in his
direction once or twice ou tho first or
second day, ho is wildly encouraged,
and if on the third clay sho nods at him
and smiles it is time to go to the parents
with reference to the marriage settle?
ments.

Just as the door of tho city clerk's
office was duo to be closed for tho day
two young ladies called and stated that
they were looking for a marriage license.
"This is not the place," explained
tho sober faced clerk. ' 'Tho clerk of the

you aro too late to get down thero be?
fore ho goes home."
"Isn't that provoking?" remarked
ouo of tho maidens, with a pout equally
provoking. "They told us that thiB was
tho placo to get licenses."
"It is?dog licenses," the facetious
clerk answered.
"The license is for me, not yon, sir,"

A GREAT PHOPHET.
What He Hits to.Say About Foretelling the
Weather and Prsservlue the Health
Probably no man connected with tho
weather department is so well known or
popular as Sorgt. Elias B. Dunn, who
has ob<vgo of tho bureau in New York

a clear eye and a spriDgy gait, although
his duties and cares ure numerous.
"How do I koep woll and fat and

paper man who asked him the question,
"why 1 lmk after my health carefully,
that's all. No matter how hard the

that iho pre-digestid food Paskola
does wonderful things for thoso who
use it. I use it in my family and find
that it lioi only is a food that enters
