When Prohibition was EnfoiCJd.
you know," said a well
ex-Confederate officer to a
New York Sun reporter, "that the
Confederate Government was the
only government in the world that
really enforced prohibition? During
the war tho Government prohibited
the manufacture of liquor in Vir
ginia. It was here that the army wus,
and the uarao prohibition extended
toother southern States. This law
was made because tho Government
wanted all the grain to feed
the people. The further re
sult was that the Confederate army
was tho soberest army that the world
ever had. The little liquor that
could be had was only obtainedjupon
the prescription of a surgeon. The
first three barrels of liquor for medi
cal purposes were sent under guard
through West Virginia und consign
ed to the leading surgeons. They
were carted over to the moun
tains and several days were
occupied in the trip. At
iheir destintaion the barrels were
found to be empty. At first this was
a mystery, hut an examination
showed that a gimlet hole had been
bored in each cask, tho liquor drawn
out and the hole neatly plunged. The
whole battalion sent along as guards
for this liquor had in this way swal
lowed it nil grandually, and though
a big row was raised it was impossible
to tlx the offence on anyone."

To Tell the Age of Horses.
Theagricultural editor of the Times
Democrat says: "The other day we
met a gentleman from Alabama who
gave us a piece of information as to
ascertaininc the ace of a horse after
he has passed the ninth year, which
was quite new to us, and will be, we
are sure, to most of our readers. It is
this After a horse is nine years old
a wrinkle comes on the eyelid, at the
upper corner of the lower lid, and
every year thereat ter ho has one

his age over nine. If, for instances, a
horse has three wrinkles; he is
twelve, if four, thirteen. Add the
number of wrinkles to nine and you
will always get it. Ho says the gen
tleman, and he is confident it will

MEXICANS ALL GAMBLE.
tt Is (he Ruling Crnic, d Even Chil
dren Indulge In It.
"(Jumbling the ruling passion in
Mexico," said Charles F. Hughes, of the
City of Mexico, who was a Palmer House
guest, while on his way to New York.
" Every one, from children 10 and 13
years of ago to old men and women, indulge-
iu it. Every member of every
class of society tries to win the favor of
the fickle goddess Fortune, for gambling
is not looked upon by Mexicans as a most
glaring vice, as it is by Northerners. The
former are more lenient in the matter of
publio morals. Each saloon has various
games of chance, but the whir of the
wheel and the click of the ball one notes
after passing various zealous guards in
tho resorts of your city are seldom heard
there. Monte is the national Mexican
game, as faro and poker are the Amer
ican, and rouge et noir and baccarat the
French. Monte tables are run within
sight of the passers by ; of course these of
which I now speak are the public games
wherein all who wish may participate.
Private games of monte are quite com
mon in some of the homes of the wealthi
est citizens of the bahny country. Poker
is . also a very popular game, and tho
stakes are frequently very high.
"At one home to which I am often in
vited there are four admirers of the
game, and each one is a shrewd and cal
culating player. This quartet is com-,
posed of father, mother, son, and, daugh
ter. Of course the stakes for which
they play are only enough 'to make it
interesting,' but the fact remains that
the parents encourage more or less the
youthful members of the family in the
fascinating pastime. But instead of
looking at the matter in the light of a
lnoiu rigid disciplinarian, the father, a
wvil to do merchant, often speaks of tlio
clever vay in which liis daughter or
son, as the case may be 'called his
bluff,' and his wife proudly exhibit a
dazzling pair of diamond earrings sho
won from him with a ten high flush.
"In alleys, upon street corners, in old
buildings, and in every accessible place,
street boys and girls can be found play
ing with some device for gambling. To
take gambling from Mexicans would
mean to deprive them of their most
fascinating pastime. Chicago News.
The Dark Day Before France.
Senator Barthelmyst Hilare, minister
of French foreign affairs, in a recent
speech said that France was spending
1,500,000 francs for every 1,000,000 francs
of income, and this process, he said, has
been going on for years. "The upshot of
the whole matter," he said, "must b
that we shall have to repudiate our debt
as we did in the first revolution and start
afresh. " Referring to the American re
public, he said: "I greatly admire the
magnificent manner in which the United
Statesdias gone on paying off its tremen
dous debt contracted during the gigantic
civil war. "We ought to imitate in a
modest way the American example. But
several circumstances oppose this. In
the first place, the wastefulness of our
great departments of government issomn
ihing frightful. While it can notbe said
