WHERE "HABANAS" COME FROM.'

"Where did this box of cigars come
from?" asked the -writer the other day,
standing in the shop of a large London
"That," said the tobacconist, "came
from the United States."
"And this—'where did this come
"Also from the United States."
"Also this other?"
"Oh, that came from the United
States too. I'll tell you all about it.
Suppose I had 2,424 boxes of cigars in
this shop, and that they were taken pro
portionately from the imports from all
countries that send us cigars, then 1,315
of these, or considerably more than half,
would have come from the United
"Then you mean to say that 13 out of
every 24 cigars smoked in London are
American?" I gasped.
"That's just it," he said. "You see,
the Americans send to Cuba for tobacco
leaves, which they use for covering the
cigars they make of Virginia, Ohio and
"Of the remaining 1,085 boxes," he
continued, "the largest number come
from the Philippine islands, from which
we get our Manillas—that is, 244 boxes.
Almost an equal number, 228, come from
our near neighbor, Prance 171 from
Belgium, 102 from Holland and 61
from Germany. Then a very large num
ber, 195, were sent from the British
East Indies. Now, you see, only 92
boxes remain, and we have not come to
Cuba, the country of true 'habanas,'
yet. Of these 92 Hongkong has sent
half, 47 11 have come from the chan
nel islands, 8 from the Canary islands
and 12 from Spain. Four are from Aus
tralia, 4 from the British West Indies
and nearly 4 from all other British pos
sessions. Now there are only 18 more
boxes, and they come from all quarters
of the globe, including Havana. You
will see that of all foreign cigars more
than half come from the United States,
and of the remainder more than half
come from France and other European
countries. No, sir, the 'habanas' which
come from Havana are a small lot
The Rhone a Hearted River.
Of all the rivers which, being navi
gable, do serious work in the world, the
Rhone is the most devil may care and
light hearted. In its 500 mile dash
downhill from the lake of Geneva to
the Mediterranean its only purpose—
other than that of doing all the mischief
possible—seems to be frolic fun. And
yet for more than 2,000 years this ap
parently frivolous, and frequently ma
levolent, river has been usefully em
ployed iri the service of mankind.
It has served under many masters. In
the Rhone valley of the present day Cel
tic flints and pottery underlie Roman
ruins here and there a bit of Roman
magnificence remains almost intact. On
the hilltops still stand the broken strong
holds of the robber nobles who main
tained their nobility: upon what they
were able to steal. Naturally, these
ruined castles, and the still existent
towns of the same period, being so con
spicuously in evidence, theflavorof the
river is most distinctly mediaeval, but
everywhere, to the discerning eye, are
traces of the barbarism, of the civiliza
tion and of thesemibarbarism which suc
cessively were plowed under before what
we have the temerity to call our own
civilization began.—Thomas.A. Janvier
Bonnets Coming Back.
Bonnets, I am led to believe, after

time past, are likely to enjoy a renewal
of favor, but they will be somewhat
larger than heretofore—of the Salva

fancy, yet I am told that in hairy or
smooth felt, with trimmings of velvet
or ribbon loops or tufts of plumes, and,
moreover, nicely tied under the chin

are ever so quaint, and with the hair

I0SS OF THE LUTINE.
MORETHAN $1,000,000WENT TO THE
BOTTOM OF THE SEA.
Only Two Snrvivom Picked Up, and They
Soon Died—Or the Vast Treasure S500,
000 Has Been Recovered—Extensive Op
erations TJnder Way to Secure the Beat.
There is an oaken chair in the office of
Lloyds', in London, the great maritime
firm, which has a strange and romantic
history. It was made from the rudder
of the King's ship Lutine, which, in
1799, was Wrecked in the North sea,
with the largest amount of gold onboard
that ever went to the bottom. The sec
retary of Lloyds' recently gave to the
public an interesting account of this
wreck and of the numerous attempts to
find her lost treasure. The Lutine was a
36 gun frigate, captured from the French
"In the autumn of 1799 it was neces
sary to send a large amount of specie
across the North sea, and, a3 usual, ap
plication was made to the admiralty for a
king's ship. This method of conveyance
Was thought the best guarantee for hon
esty, the best assurance against capture
by foreign foes. Althbugh some money
is supposed to have been transmitted by
the Lutine to pay British troops then
serving in Holland, the bulk of the
treasnre was forwarded for purely com
"London merchants trading with
north Germany in those days were in
the habit of sending their goods and
then drawing bills for their value upon
Hamburg and other houses at so many
months ahead. By the time the bills fell
due the goods had been sold for cash,
which was paid into the banks to meet
engagements. But a protracted frost in
the early part of 1799 had so long seal
ed the Elbe that the merchandise had
been detained ice bound and could not
be landed or disposed of in time.'
"The London traders, to save their
credit and escape the expense of protest,
providing new bills and other probable
commercial disasters, resolved to send
cash across to cover their drafts as they
came to maturity. So grave was the
crisis, so great the sum to be embarked,
that a king's ship was asked, and near
ly every banking firm in Lombard street
dispatched a member in charge of its
own cash contribution.
"Moreover, as many legal questions
might arise, an experienced notary—his
name is preserved, Mr. Schabrach—was
secured to accompany the party and ad
vise in any difficulty. The precious car
go was insured principally at Lloyds'.
-."Various ideas, and nothing quite
authoritative, prevail as to the exact
amount on board the Lutine. Some say
the specie, which was in coins of all
sorts, gold and silver, guineas, golden
piasters, double louis d'or, Sicilian
goldpieces, silver piasters and dollars,
also in gold and silver bars, reached a
total value of upward of a million.
"In October*of that year the Lutine
was ordered round to Yarmouth to. take
treasure on board and proceed to the
Elbe. Her captain was one Lancelot
Skynner, R. N., an officer of distinction,
and no doubt his mission was much to
his taste. The short voyage was likely
to bring him considerable profit, for it
was the rule to pay.naval captains a
commission of 1 .*«• cent on the total
"On the evening of the 5th of October
the Lutine lay in Yarmouth roads with
a merry party on board. The captain,
no doubt in excellent spirits, had given
a grand ball to the leading people in and
about Yarmouth. The last of the guests
had hardly gone ashore when peremp
tory orders came from the admiralty
that the Lutine should forthwith go to
sea. She sailed in the early morning of
the 6th, and from that time very little
was heard of her.
"It is, however, known that she steer
ed a straight course for Cuxhaven, at
thevmouth of-the Elbe, wind strong
from north northwest, and greatly in
favor. After landing passengers and
treasure the Lutine was to convoy a fleet
of merchantmen to the Baltic.
"Soon after midnight, going free and
under full: press of sail, she struck on the
outer bank of the island of Vlieland
(Flyland), the next to the Texel and
one of the ring of islands that hem the
mouth of the Znyder, Zee. She must
have been slightly out of the course, and
it is said that therewas a strong lee tide
running. During the night «ne went
down with all on board. AnotherJring's
ship, the Ajrow, Captain Portlook, was
in company, but she could give no help,
nor the'scoots'or .fishing boats of the
coast, and when day broke there was no
Lutine. Onlyltwo survivors were picked
up byva Butch lugger at daylight cling
ing to the wreckage, one of whom died
almost immediately, and the other, Mr.
Schabrach, the notary, very soon after
ward died, but not until he had told the
little he knew.
"Repeated efforts have been made to
recover the money. In the year imme
diately following, when the whole thing
was fresh and before th#8ami bad silted
or drifted over the wreck, the Dutchmen
fished up some £55,000. Then more sys
tematic and 'some really costly efforts
were made, and by 1857-9 another £50,
000 was recovered.
"The present operations were begun
in 1892 by an English engineer, Mr.
Fletcher, who had been engaged on the
Dntch coast in raising a sunken dredger.
He became interested in the Lutine, and
associating himself with another emi
nent engineer, Mr. Rinipple, they have
approached the business in a novel way.
Their idea is to clear the ship of sand,
but to inclose her in a central area or
dock faced by sandbags, which will pre
vent farther silting, while they ransack
the interiorbf the wreck by divers. This
area is 300 feet in diameter, from which
the sand will be removed by powerful
suction dredgers." New Orleans

Pe Picture of tbe
?CJtr a Siberia. .'Jl
Vladivostok has the aspect of an in
ferior Hongkong, of about .a quarter the
rise. Hills crowned with forts rise round
it np to a height of 860 feet It lies on
the south side of a peninsula 20 miles
long, called Maravief Amursky, in 43
degrees 6 minutes 51 seconds north lati
tude, and 131 degrees 54minutes 21 sec
onds east longitude. The town is "be
tween four and five miles long, but is
straggling and unconnected, and of no
breadth. Some streets are very steep, and
all are Larribly dusty in dry weather,
being never watered, and being contin
ually crossed in all directions by dros
kies driven at a smart pace. Instead of
pavements the streets have "sidewalks"
of planks, as commonly seen in new
American cities. You take six stout
planks, some 25 feet long, and lay them
side by side, and you continue the proc
ess for the requisite number of versts
or. miles (three versts are two miles),
and the "sidewalk" is complete, save
for a few props and nails where the
ground is too soft, or the foundation
degenerated into holes.
The droskies are driven by redheaded,
snub nosed Russian izvozchiks in low,
glazed stovepipe hats.Vith very .curly
brims, red sleeves, plaited black-skirts
and high boots. In them one often sees,*
lolling as passengers, a couple of frowsy
Chinese or a still frowsier Korean. The
fare is only 80 kopecks, or 1 shilling and
18 pence, an hour, or over half an hour,
and from point to point there are ten
penny and fivepenny fares, according to
distance. The regulations forbid charg
ing mbre, but, with fine irony, allow
the" driver "to take less, if he'likes."
He may not leave his cab to take care of
itself, may not "sing, make a noise or
cause a disturbance he must temper
his pace to a "town trot," and "keep to
the righthand side of the road."
The troika has a dashing look the
horse in the middle trots under the arch
ed duga, whose object and effect, when
properly put on, are to keep the shafts at
the same distance apart. The small
horses right and left are cantering, and
their bodies incline a little outward
from the car. In Vladivostok are few
complete triple teams generally there
are only the "middle horse" trotting,
and one other cantering on its near side.*
The water barrel on wheels drawn by
horse or bull and often driven by a sol
dier is a frequent sight, carrying water
up to the forts and to the upper town.
A funnier horse vehicle is the sit-,
astride, cushioned beam on which izvoz
chik and cloaked and spurred officer sit,
with dangling legs, one behind the
other, the officer behind.—Fortnightly
LEMONS AS MEDICINE.
Many a Cure I Effected by These Simple
and Palatable Remedies.
Lemon juice sweetened with loaf or
crushed sugar will relieve a cough.
For feverishness and an unnatural
thirst soften a lemon by rolling on a
hard surface, cut off the top, add sugar
and work it down into the lemon with
a fork, then suok it slowly.
During the warm months a sense of
ooolnees, comfort and invigoration. can
be produced by a free use of lemonade.
For six large glasses of lemonade: use
six large, juicy lemons. Roll on a hard
surface so that the juice can be easily
extracted. Peel and slice. Add suffi
cient sugar to sweeten and stir it well
into the juice before adding the water.
Hot lemonade will break up a cold if
taken at the start Make it the same as
cold lemonade, only use boiling water
instead of cold Water and use about one
half as much sugar.
A piece of lemon, or stale bread mois
tened with lemon juice, bound on a
corn will cure it Renew night and
morning. Thefirstapplication will pro
duce soreness, but if treatment is per
sisted in for a reasonable length of time
a cure will be effected.
The discomfort caused by sore and
tender feet may be lessened, «f not en
tirely cured, by applying slices of lem
ons on the feet.
To cure chilblains take a piece Of
lemon, sprinkle fine salt over it and rub
the feet well. Repeat if necessary.
Lemon juice will relieve roughness
and vegetable stains on the*hands. Aft
er having the hands in hot soapsuds
rub them with a piece of lemon. This
will prevent chapping and make the
hands soft and white.—Philadelphia
The Swiss Pike.
The name of the Swiss is generally
identified with the long pike of the 18
foot shaft, and most gallant attempts
have been made by recent writers to
prove that this celebrated weapon was a
Swiss invention and employed by the
confederates from the first The point,
however, is one that must remain un
certain, for the earliest mention of the
long pike is found in an order addressed
in 1327 by^Count Philip of Savoy to the
burghers of Turin, and no one can tell
whether the Savoyards borrowed it from
the Swiss or the Swiss from the Savoy
ards. The primitive weapons of all in
fantry seem to be the spear and shield.
The Milanese fought with such spears
and pikes eight or ten feet: in length at
Legnano, the Scotch at Falkirk and
the Flemings .at Courtrai, so that it is
impossible really to predicate of any one
nation that it added the requisite num
ber of .'feet to make the Weapon's shaft
in order to make it along pike. .There
•is no mention of pikes in the battles of
the Swiss until Sempach, and it is prob
able that in that action they were not
above ten feet in length.—Macmillan's
