The American and European Newspaper
Rabbi Sonnesehein, of St. Louis, lato
ly spoko" upon tho dill'erenco between
Anieriean and European newspapers of
tho present day. The Kuropenn news
papers ho would compare to a fisherman
who sits immovablu and silent on tho
bank of tho stream waiting fur prey to
enter his meshes. Tho American jour
nal is like tho hunter who seeks his
gamo and secures it by hard work. Tito
American editor rthvnys keeps tho wants
of tho reader In mind when preparing
niattor for tho press. Ho is not so par
ticular about oeauty of lanjruago so
long as ho secures tho news. Tho Kuro
penn editor on tho contrary was liko a
collego professor, very classical, very
cold and very long-winded. Tho his
tory of newspapers was a history
of tho world. Tho first newspaper
was printed In tho Latin language for a
select fow soon after tho invention of
tho printing press. A copy of it was now
preserved in tho Lelspslo llbiary, and
the greatest news It contained was a de
scription of tho discovery of America.
It was printed in 1491, just about the
period tho discoveries were tnado. Rom
in Germany, the newspaper thon gravi
tated towards Franco, whuro It existed
in a slipshod manner for a couple of
centuries. Tha tirst development worth
sneaking of occurred at the time ot tho
French revolution, in 1781). An official
journal published in Tarls at tho tlmo
Issued a semi-weekly edition, which was
at the tlmn considered a matter of aomo
With Ball Cartridge.
Our commanding ollleer, Colonel
Freeman retired now theso seven years
was a gentleman of very limited
knowledge as regards regimental ma
noeuvres, and ns theOnety-oneth had been
stationed at N. for more than a year,
and was apparently forgotten by tho au
thorities, ho had no inducement to ex
tend his acquaintance. Thus, from long
practice, wo could go through his half
dozen movements with a precision and
readiness that might have been envied by
tho smartest corps in the service. Rut
thero wo stopped. Ueyond thoso wo
know nothing. You can imagine, then,
our consternation when we heard that
tho officer commanding the district
Lord Pufferoowas coming to officially
Inspect us. Freeman was at first over
come with tho news; but after atimowo
could sea ution his face a look of stern
resolve, llo had evidently made up his
mind to do something desperate.
The fatal day catno at last, as also did
General Lord Pufferoo, "attended by a
brilliant staff," as tbo newspapers say.
We were duly paraded and! inspected,
and put through tho same old manoeuv
res that we had performed every day for
the last twelve months. Wo deployed
and marched, and marched and deploy
ed, nud then began nil over nain, till
at last tho general showed evident signs
of impatience. And then, when an
aide-de-camp came galloping tip to Free
man, wo knew our fate was sealed!
"Colonel Freeman," said tho aide-de-camp,
suavely, "his lordship wishes mo
to express his" satisfaction with the move
ments so far; nothing could have- been
done better. At tho same time he would
suggest that some fresh manoeuvres
might bo gone through with advantage.
Ho has scarcely, as yet, had an oppor
tunity to judge of your regiment's capa
bilities." "Tell his lordship," said tho
old colonel, hoarsely, "that ho shall bo
We all wondered what was coming
next. Judge of our astonishment when,
after getting us into lino facing the stall",
ho rodo behind us and called out, "Dat
talion with ball cartridge, load! Ready!
pre" Before he could get out, "Pre
sent!" tho general and his staff had
turned tail and wcro flying over the field
to get out of range! Lord Pufferoo went
back to his headquarters at once, and
next week camo an intimation to tho
colonel that his resignation would bo ac

A Tribe of Tree Dwellers.
A French naval doctor, M. Crevaux,
has lately made important explorations
in tho northern part of South America,
moro especially in the valley of the Ori
noco and its affluents. Among other
facts of observation ho states that tho
Gnaraunos, at tho delta of that river,
tako refuge In tho trees when tho delta
is inundated. There they make a sort
of dwelling with branches and clay. The
women light, on a small piece of floor,
tho fire needed for cooking, and tho
traveler on tho river by night often sees
with surprise long rows of flames at a
considerable height in tho air. TheGua
raunos dispose of their dead by hanging
them in hammocks in tho tops of trees.
Dr. Crevaux, in tho course of his travels,'
met with geoiihngous, or earth-eating
tribes. The clay, which often serves for
their food for wholo months, seems to
bo a mixture of oxido of iron and somo
organic substances. They havo recourso
to it more especially in times of scarcity;
but, strango to say, thero are 'eager
gourmands for the substance, individu
als in whom tho depraved taste becomes
so pronounced that they may bo seen'
tearing pieces of ferruginous clay from
huts made from it, andVputtiug them in
to their mouths. . '
Wife "My dear, do you not think
Johnny has a wuudorf ul genius for draw
ing?" Husband "I do indeed."
W. "Perfectly remarkable. It seems
to mo wo should bo guilty of wilfully
flying in tho face of Providence if wo did
not recognize the fact in seleetinc a pro
fession for him. Mr. Virgil wTlliams,
tho picture maker, assures 'mo that all
Johnny needs is instruction."
H. "Just my idea; and I mean to
apprentice him to a corner grocery for
instruction in drawing molasses."
W. "Oh, you insincere num."
1L "Oh, you adorable woman."
Tho years of men's lives are liko tho
pages of a schoolboy's copy-hook, ever
beginning fair, ami always ending In
the sumo unsightly scrawls and bloUs.
Yet tho schoolboy passion for "turnim'

A Eomantio Story.
Twenty years ago, a prominent physi
cian was called to attend the detithlied
of an old Mexican. The doctor remain
ed faithfully nt his side until he drew
his hutt breath, and just before ho died
tho old Mexican said: "Doctor, may
God reward you for your kindness to
mo. I have no money to give you, but
I can tell you n secret, known to mo
only, whlelt may sometime prove valu
able to you." In a faint voice ho told
how ho became possessed of the know
ledge of tho exact loealily of ono of tho
lost mines in Mexico, which had not
been worked for more than a century,
and he gnvo tho physician the maps
showing tho situation, which he had
been ciii-rving about with him, betnir too
jioor himself to use tho knowledge for
lii.i own advantage, but always, hoping
to find some one to buy his valuable
secret. The physician thought little of
the matter ut toe time, or until many
years afterward. Within a year ho has
been thero with a partner and bought
tho land where his maps said the lulno
Would bo found without disclosing why
