All that concerns the men and worn-
who givo distinction to their day is
of interest to those who admire, criti
dae and perhaps envy their achieve
ments. A special and legitimate cari
osity Is felt in reference to the condi
tions nnder which success is won.
Glimpses are occasionally given into the
methods of eminent toilers, and a won
derful variety is revealed. It is at least
plain that no guidebook to great per
farmancos the anxious author can hare
his choice of several will determine
the point where exactly the best results
are to be obtained. Ouo man's help is
another's hindrance. Many famous
writers, for instancy hare only been
able to perfect their thought in silence
and seclusion. Bnt there have also been
those who could work in the midrt of
babel and defy distraction. Jane Aus

At Wallcnstadt, the other day, at the
recruiting Hatiou, there wait a guard
composed of five men. The chief was a
lieutenant wuo Bpoke German only, the
seoond a sergeant who spoke Italian
otiy, the tliird a corporal who con Id
speak Fr nch and Spanish, the fourth a
private who could speak French and
Gorman, and the fifth a private who
could spoak French and Italian. When
tho lieutenant had to traitMuit an order
to the sergeant, he bad to get tho last
named mun to interpret far him. When
he wnntcd to communicate with the
corporal, he had to requisition the fourth

There are probably more quaint super
stitions woven abont tea than about any
thing else in tbo world. If yon put
cream in your cup before the sugar, it
will "cross yonr love." so yon must be
very careful. If, while the tea is boing
made, the lid, removed to pour in the
water, is forgotten to be replaced, it is
the euro sign of the approaching arrival
of a stranger.
If a titfi stalk floats in the cop, it is

If tho "bean" is attached to the spoon
and clings to it, be will be sure to call
very shortly, if not on that very even

the cup, be will not come. In some
places this is also said to denote the
coming of a stranger, and if tho stalk
is soft tho newcomer will be a lady; if
tough, a gentleman.

If the cluster of small air bubbles
formed by the sugar collect and remain
in the center of the cup, it is a sign of

destroying their toved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
