England should never have gone into
Egypt. Her only excuse for going there
was the protection of a few London capi
talists who had lent money to the Khedive,
and whom he could not pay. But, having
gone there, and committed herself to the
blunder of intermeddling in the govern
ment of Egypt, she should have accepted
all the responsibilities and gaung herself
clear round the pyramids and staid round.
The logic of her occupation was that
Egypt was to be a British province. This
logic has worked itself out in needless
losses and massacres; and the country
must be held at last.
The Iowa State Register, under the

ought now to be rotting under the gallows
tree, but who, taking northern generosity

loyal people on patriotism " The Atlanta

CUAUIAIIQDA IN 1885.
Chautauqua is the favorite mid-summer
resort of Springfi-ld people and hundreds
of persons go there every season, by either
the Bee Line or the N. Y., V. i. O. route.
Many of our readers will, therefore, be
glad to know what is to be done in this
great educational and amusement center
in July and August ol the present year.
We may say here that what has been
known as the Chautauqua Assemnly is to
be known, legally, hereafter as The Chau
tauqua University, the institution having
been reorganized and incorporated under
a special act of the New York Legislature,
and tne Rev. Dr. John H. Vincent having
been appointed Chancellor. And tte may
state at the outset that the popular edu
cational features and facilities of the in
stitution have been broadened und
strengthened, as the result of the liberal
ity, public spirit and philanthropic pur
poses of the managers Mr. Lewis Miller,
the Buckeyj Reaper and Mower man, of
Akron, his brother, Mr. Jacob Miller, of
Canton, Mr. Root, of Buffalo, and their as
sociates, who have, together, put a couple
of hundred thousand dollars in
this enterprise and its appoint
ments, and have never realized a
a dollar in return for their investment! If
people will bear this in mind they will
know how to treat the fale twaddle that
is put in circulation every season about
Chautauqua as a "money-making" insti
Chautauqua is to be w ell manned with
women this year. It is currently be
lieved that Dr. Vincent is constitutionally
if not conscientiously opposed to women
on the platform, hut it seems to modify his
opposition to allow him to pick out his
women. Last )ear several "blessed-good"
female reformers, who meant well, no
doubt, broke over the rules and shouted
for the modern St John and Prophet
Daniel from the Chautauqua platform
but they will never do it again! That is to
say, we do not believe they will. Dr. Vin
cent has selected this year, as
women orators, first, the hright,
keen, brilliant and fearless Kate
Field, who went to Utah to investi-,
gate Mormonism and Polygamy, and who
staid long enough to acquire a personal
and practical knowledge of our great so
cial and political American cancer, and
who has already demonstrated the fact
that she can tell what she has learned
with thrilling and stirring effect Then
come Mary A. Livermore (may she live
forever!) and Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, of
Iowa, who (the last-named) refused to train
with the Female St. Johnsters, last year,
and woild have voted for Blaine if she
had been allowed to.
Edward Everett Hale, of Boston; llev
Dr. Lorimer, of Chicago; Bob Burdette,
the brightest, wisest and best of the funny
men; the incomparable John B. Gough;
Dr. Deems and Frank Beard, of New
York, the latter a great Chautauqua
favorite; and the peerless Bishop Foster,
formerly a resident here, are, with
others among the male platform speakers,
either announced or mentioned as subject
to pending negotiations.
The Chautauqua schools of various de
partments of learning will enjoy unrivalled
facilities the coming season.
The Atbajneum hotel will be opened in
June and kept open much later than usual.
There will be the customary accompa
niments of the season: Spelling matches,
pronouncing matches, vesper services,
round tables, missionary institute for four
days, normal classes, children's classes,
clay modeling, Look-up legion day, Bible
readings, devotional services, memorial
days, illuminated fleet, parlor receptions,
foreign tours, conversazioni, alumni day,
alumni reunions, international Sunday
school gatherings, baccalaureate sermon,
recognition day, C. L. S. C. bonfires, Y.
M. C. A. meetings, etc
The greatest featnre of all will be the
Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle
commencement day, on which day the
class of 18S5, (with representatives in this
city), having completed its course of four
years of study and readings, will graduate.
It now seems probable that not less than
a thousand members will be on the ground
to receive their diplomas.
PROFESSOR OF SIGNS

Sign Language the Only One To lte-

Draw Different Conltislons.
Some time ego a learned Frenchman bo
atme very entaaatastic on the subject of a
universal language for the human race.
t ter much thought and theorizing on the
subject ha came to the conclusion that the
only language that could be universal at
the present day must be a language ot signs.
Being deeply impressed with the import
wee of tht language to humanity, he de
termined to travel from country to country
and teach it in all their colleges and uni
versities. As it happened, the first country
he reached in his travels was Ireland, and
the first institution ha went to was the Uni
versity of Dublin.
He called1 upon the president of the uni
versity, and after some conversation with
him, asked him if he had a professor of
signs m his university. Now there was no
professor ot signs in the university, but the
president not wishing to bo behind the
learned Frenchman, told him that they had
one. The Frenchman tked to Lo intro
duced to him. The president was taken
back at this, but told him that ho could not
see the professor that day, but if ho would
call the next day at the same hour he would
After the Frenchman had gone, the presi
dent called his professors together and told
them the fix he was in, and told them that
one of them must play the part of professor
of signs next day. They all demurred and
objected to this, being afraid tliat they
might be caught by the Frenchman. As
cone of tnem was willing to play the part,
they at least decided to train iliLo, the
choreman, for it Mike had lost an eye, and

in a good suit of clothes, took him to the

him they told him what to do, and that he
must not speak.
lie replied, 'Sure I'll cot, if he sez nothin'

At the appointed time the Frenchman
called, and was ushered into the "recitation
room of the professor of signs." The presi
dent and professors waited in an adjoining
room anxiously for the result In a short
tune the Frenchman came back to them ap
parently much pleased.
"How did you like our professor of signs!"

"Very much, indeed. I congratulate you
on your able professor. I am more than

gotten out of the dilemma, they ware very

The Dentist's Request.
New York Cor. Chicago JournaLl
My dentist tells me of a hated rival who
advertises unprofessionally for patients. He
resorts to all sorts ot tricks to catch the pub
lic eye. But his latest idea miscarried. A
certain pretty actress will soon be more fas
cinating than ever, because her defective
natural teeth will be replaced by perfect
artificial teeth. My friend is at work in the
job But she first went to tho opposition
man to get an estimate. "The ordi
nary price would be 1150," he
said, after a carfef ul examination of the
inoutu to be improved; but as you are on tl e
stage, I think I can moke y ou a preposition
that will moet our respective views satisfac
torily. Tho finest of actresses announce in
the bills the names of their dressmakers, and
let even their wigmakers advertise them
selvesof course for a consideration. Now,

The maniac lover of old-time melodrama
was cot more violently emotional than this
actress thinks she was on this occasion.

A CURIOUS CUSTOM.
What Took rlace At lien a Child Sneered at
New York Herald 1
Seven Hungarians four men, two women
and n 4 year-oil child were sitting at sup
per tho other evening, when tho cbdd sud
denly began to sneeze. Straightway all
knives and forks wore held in mid-air, all
eyes turned upon the afflicted one, all
tongues poured forth a torrent of blessing-1.
The child sneezed five times, and five times
did her companions implore the Aim ghty to
bless her When the child's nostrils resumed
their normal condition the knies and forks
were laid on the table, the chorus of bene
dictions ceased ani the next act of the
drama was eagerly awaited.
It was a novel and curious one. The
child folded her hands in her lap, and fixing
her black o es on each of her companions in
turn, said slowly and earnestly, "I thank
you, mother; I thank you, aunt; I thank
you, Louise; I thank you, Gey-a; I thank
you, Paul; I thank you, Stofano." Those
addressed smiled and nodded and soemed
peculiarly prjud that the little one had been
imbued with religion at such an early age
As proof of their approbation they pilel
cakes and other d unties on her plate and
cautioned her never to forget to ask God's
blessing on any ono who might htpiien to
sneeze m her presence, and to lie sure to re
turn thanks to all whoa.ked God's blessinz
on herseir. hhouia sho fall to do so it was
intimated that death br choking would
probably be tha result of such shocking in
gratitude. Tha child listened to the gol
advice, and then began to make havoc
among tho cakes.
Feeling ".omewhat curious as to the or
igin of this custom, a reporter sought en
lightenment from a prominent Hungarian.
"I do not know the exact origin," said the
gentleman, "but I believe It is as old as the
Hungarian nation itself. Other nations ore
accustomed to ask a bonedictin on whomso
ever they may hear sneezing, but except in
the caso of our people, I do not believe that
they get any thanks for their trouble. It is
a unique custom, and is as provalen t to-day
among all classes of the people in Hungary
as it was a hundred j ears ago."
Old English Tunes.
The English glees, catches, rounds, canons
and madrigals are thoroughly national, and
are adnrred by musicians of every country
for their graceful complications both of
melody and harmony. The English dance
music is equally spirited, and her country
jigs and sailors' horar, po are known all over
the world. Some of the most ancient pop
ular melodies of the English are fortunately
preserved in n little manuscript of tho age
of Queen Elizabeth, called "Queen Eliza
beth's Virginal Book," containing airs that
are still popular among the peasantry.
Those exquisitely pathetic tunes sung by
Ophelia m "Hamlet" are admired by all
musicians, ard are far older than history
con trace. Such noble tunes as "The King
Shall Enjoy His Own Again," "Crop-eared
Roundheads," "The Girl I Left Behind Me,"
"Balance a Staw," "Drink to Me Only with
Thine Ees," "Down Among the Dead Mn,"
"Tho Vicar of Bray," "The Miller of Dee,"
"Begone Dull Care," and others may be
cited as fair specimens of English populoi
and traditional music.
Its general characteristics tr strength
and martial energy. It has a duhuig, lm
pulsive, leaping, fruheksome spirit, occasion
ally overshadowed by a tccch f sadness.
It has not the tender melancholy of the
music of Ireland, nor the light, airy grace,
delicate beauty and heart-wrung liathos ol
the songs of Scotland, butithosalilt and style
of its own. In ono word, tho music of Eng
land may lo de-cribed as "merry," and hex
ofttmnal sons partake of the same cbar
actcr, nr.d are jovial, lusty, exultant and
full of life and daring.

Wellington and JTelson.
In the interesting volumes of "The Corre
spondence and Diaries of the late John Wil
son Croker," a curious anecdote is given of
the only interview that ever took place be
tween Wellington and Nelson. The story
was told by Wellington himself in a conver
sation with Croker at Walmar castle, and
runs, in substance, as follows: "I had just
returned," said Wellington, "from Indus, and
went to the colonial office in Downing street,
where, on being shown into the nttle waiting
room, I found, also waiting to see tho secre
tary, of state, a gentleman whom, from his
likeness to his picture, and the loss of an
arm, I immediately saw to be Lord Nelson.
He uld not know who I was, but at once
began to talk to me. I can hardly call it
conversation, for it was almost all on his
own side and all about himself, and m so

I might be somebody, and he disappeared
from the room, no doubt to ask the ofllco
keeper who I was. What an altogether dif
ferent man when he came back both in
manner and matter! The charlatan style
had vanished, and he talked of the aspect of
affairs on the continent liko an officer and a
statesman. The secretary kept us long
waiting, and certainly for the last half of an
hour I don't know that I ever had a conver
sation that interested me more. Now, if the
secretary had admitted Lord Nelson m the
first quarter of an hour, I should have had
the same impression of a light and trivial
character that others have had. Luckily, I
saw enough to become convinced that he
was a superior man, but certainly a more
sudden and complete metamorphosis I never

is from the parties just about large enough

Murray Hdl people "whose mania for fashion
has developed into acute so isl hysteria," it
said: "If at lU'an or any other home of
opera in Italy, they were to behave as they

the overripe tomato or some other bandy
vegetable, would fall with fearful impact
upon t eir unprotected anatomy, producing

The St Paul man, with a firm but rather
gloomy expression of countenance, quietly
remarked: "Well, I'll send jou a check for
the other $700 wlen I get homel" and came
away. It is douotful if the Dakota auditors
"caught on" to the joke.
