The English, the Americans and the
French are probably the most remu-
mi salve patrons of Monte Carlo, and It
la to Switzerland and not to the frontier
of ItsJy that the wast majority of pleas-
are seekers repair in summer, ears the
London Telegraph. Again, at the very
aertod when the Casino people wish to
altar KnarlWh vial tors to the Riviera,
the Londoa season is at its height and
the parliamentary session has as yet
shown no sign of waning. The Atlantic
are hringlag to Europe every
ft shoals of American tourists, but
our transatlantic visitors usually pass
the atunmer in London or Paris, or at
English or French watering places, and
await cooler weather before they Jour
ney down south. Another suggestion
made to the perplexed administration
la that a club for the use of gentlemen
visitors should be established In con
nection with the Casino, it being- pro-
to utilise for tbe purpose the
premises of the Hotel Monte Carlo, but
It la difficult to see that the financial
prosperity of tbe Casino company would
be increased by supplementing the ex
isting tripot with a club. Visitors who
really belong- to cosmopolitan clubland
can eaaily become members of the Cer
ol de la. Mediterranee at Nice, and
after all. tt is not the serious players,
the adentiflo operators at rougf et nolr.
who despise the merry but frivolous
game of roulette, that are the most lu
crative customers at the Casino. At
trente-et-cjuarante it is really . possible
to win very large sums of money, not,
indeed, to break the bank since Napo
leon's dictum of the big battalions
eventually winning still holds and al
ways will hold good but enough to
cause the administration to close a par
ticular table for a few hours. At rou
lette, however, for the winner of any
considerable amount there are possibly
100 who, sooner or later, will be utterly
and hopelessly decaves, or "cleaned
out." Moreover, in modern times it has
been the lady punters who, in the aggre
gate, bring the greatest amount of
grist to the mill of the Casino company.
It Is not that the ladies often go to the
maximum of stakes to be realised they
are in general too timorous for that
but they play recklessly and they con
tinue to play until they have lost their
last o-franc piece on the tapis vert, and
a club from which ladies were excluded
would be bereft of the contributions of
the sex who are, as gamesters, not less
adventurous and perhaps a little more
Incorrigible than men.
BOGUS BEER AND SMOKE.
A WsrMly Crltlelsa of Two Great e-
arsaatsry AgeacUe of the Ago
It Is said that the non-alcoholic Imi
tation of beer which Bishop Fallows is
selling in his Chicago church saloon
looks like beer, tastes like beer, foams
like beer, and has so many of the other
qualities of beer that It is calculated to
deceive Hans Breitman bi-e!f. This
being the case, is it moral T When
Mulberry Sellers strove to produce the
sensation of warmth and cheerfulness
by putting a lighted candle in the stove
was he truthful and heroic or menda
cious and cowardly? The question- is
not a light one. It gees deep, via addi
tion to Bishop Fallows' Imitation beer
we have thrust upon as an alleged
agency of reform a patent pipe which
can be loaded with tobacco and smoked
In the ordinary way, except that the
smoker, who seems to be drawing deep
draughts of consolation and philosophy
from it. Is not getting a single whiff of
the reality. He Is merely deceiving
himself with a delusive dream of com
fort. Is this reform? If it Is there Is
reason for believing that hades will be
the most thoroughly reformed place in
the universe, for there, according to
tbe version of a sacred poet whose
scriptures have the authority of ven
erable antiquity, men as shadows will
Indulge the ehadows of their un mas
tered habits, drinking church reform
beer and smoking patent reform pipes
forever and ever without the possibil
ity either of satisfaction or satiety.
And after having tried this for only a
abort time one of the greatest dignita
ries of the place declared that he would
rather be a tramp or a Chicago broker
on earth than the most respected and
honored potentate in all sheol. The
mocking reality of such pinchbeck imi
tations of allurinsr vice as the patent
ptpe fca' SVmefMtaj TVffernal about It,
Homer was not mlstaWen on that point
There can be no virtue In pretending to
be delightfully vicious. The way to
reform la to reform. There is no other

te a Sleigh.
It was the experience of only a horse,
but It was such as to raise the hair of
all who witnessed it, says the McKees-
port Times. The animal belonged to
Jacob Keil of Market street and. after
running- off and swimming half way
across the river, it was returned to its
owner uninjured. Yesterday afternoon
Mr. Keil left his home in this, city in a
sleigh and went to the residence of John
Sinn in Lincoln township. He tied his
horse in a large coal shed- near the
house. Shortly afterward Mr. Sinn's
hired man drove up with a load of coal,
and. not knowing of the presence of the
animal on the Inside, commenced pitch
Ins; tbe coal through a window In the
shed. Mr. Kelt's horse frightened, broke
loose and started for home. Up hill
and down hill It dashed at a reckless
pace, frightening numerous pedestrians
alone the -way. 'The - horse Anally
reached the Monongahela' river and.
nothing daunted, started tn to swim to
the other side, dragging the sleigh with
it. The river was full of Ice. but the
an1-1 swam out Into the current and
bad succeeded In getting about half way
across, when It became chilled by the
Icy water and turned back. It reached
the shore tn safety and waa caught and
returned to its owner. A peculiar fea
ture of the runs wax fwas that -the
sleigh and harness were not damaged
to any great extent and the horse es
caped injury, although exhausted by
Its wild and furious chase.

In restaurants where women "are em

although they cost -the giver nothing
and have no cash value anywhere, ex
cept, perhaps, aa elements to be con
sidered In estimating damages in
breach of promise suits, says the New
Tork Herald. Why a man should con
sider it more or less obligatory on htm
to give a gratuity to the man who waits
upon him. be he white or colored, while
bis conscience relieves faun' of all such
obligations when a woman performs a
similar service for him. is one of those
mysteries which the feminine mind Is
Incapable of solving. I have conversed
with several "waitresses' on the sub
ject, and they have always told me
that they would Infinitely prefer dimes
to smiles, mors esredaHy aa their pay
is so small that the problem of making
both ends meet is for them a particu
larly hard one. It may be said In de
fense of masculine custom in this mat
ter that the conduct of the recipients
of these amatory demonstrations
would Justify the opinion that they pre
fer them to small pecuniary emolu
ments, but the cruel fact Is that the girt
employed in a restaurant who doesn't
act more or less aa a flirt stands no
chance of retaining her 'position. A
complaint of a customer's familiarity.
Instead of causing him to be rebuked,
would more likely result in her own
dismissal. It Isn't alone for waiting
that she la paid. She Is expected to
make herself "attractive." There are
many men of an economical turn of
mind whose patronage of restaurants
where women are employed la largely
due to the fact that at such places they
can refrain from "tipping" without be
ing suspected of meanness. And a
dime saved is 20 cents earned. But, all
the same, a woman who waits on table
In a restaurant Is Just as much entitled
to a "tip" as a man, and the fact that
she doesn't tret it is only another link
In the chain of evidence which ehowa

advantage of a woman in pecuniary
matters if he gets half a chance. That

TOLD OP WARD M'ALLISTER.
Story f the SepamUm of TMa Wife
aad RIs Oldest Sea.
The story, according to an old society
woman. Is this: Soon after the mar
riage of Ward McAllister be and his
bride went abroad and took up a year's
residence in Paris. Here they enter
tained and lived very magnificently.
They were extremely popular, and when
the little Ward appeared on the scene
he was made the recipient of numerous
gifts and was treated like a baby of
royalty. His mother Was passionately
devoted to him, giving up society for
him, and not even allowing the nurses
to touch him when her own care could
take the nurse's place. But the young
wife was not strong. Soon her health
began to weaken under the strain of
the case af the boy, and, after a consul
tation, the Parisian doctors said that
the two must be separated and the
mother travel In Idly for her health or
she would die. Immediately Ward Mc
Allister began making preparations, for
the trip. But to his surprise his wife
refused to be separated from the child..
Poor mothers took care of their chil
dren, why could not she? And she
knew that prepared French food would
kill Mm that was the secret of it all.
Finally a desperate scene was gone
through with. And the wife was car
ried off forcibly to Italy, while the baby
returned on the steamer with his nurse
to make a visit to an uncle and aunt on
the Pacific coast. But before the sepa
ration Mrs. McAllister made this vow:
If you take the child away now I will
never look upon blm again." And she
has kept that vow to this day now
forty years. That Is the story aa the
clubmen and older society women tell
It, says a correspondent of the Baltimore
Sun. Possibly there Is but little foun
dation for it to rest upon. Fear
ing for the future of the son, the gos
sips go on to say. he had saved money
for him and used all his enormous so
cial influences for him. Once he dined
a certain western railroad magnate on
consideration that he would give Ward,
Jr., Jthe counsel work for his western
roads. The son occasionally visits New

the two plants aa a Joint enterprise.
This idea has also taken root near at
home, aad the plana for a gas and Ice
plant In a near-by city are already in an
advanced state of preparation. This
new development of the artificial ice
business baa been brought about large
ly by the improvements made In the
process of Its manufacture, which have
not only materially improved the quali
ty of the product, but reduced its cost
to a point which seems to assure a very
large profit even at a price much below
that possible to those who get their sup
ply from nature's stock. - It is claimed

GENERAL MILES' BOVHOOD.
Loved Flahiag aad Was the Leader ml aa
When General Miles was a boy. he
had few companions near his home, for
it was alarming region and sparsely
settled. His only brother, 13 years older
than himself, left home early, and his
two sisters being much older Nelson
left much to himself.
On Saturdays and other holidays the
schoolboys frequently met by appoint
ment at the home of one of their num
ber. They formed themselves into bands
and clans and drilled or carried cn min
iature warfare. They re-enacted scenes
of the Indian and Revolutionary wars.
The leaders drew lots to settle who
should be "the British," "tho Injins"
Kelson Miles frequently led one band.
They made expeditious through the open
wooded country. Sometimes imagining
themselves roving Indians, they built
wigwams, and sometimes as pioneer
settlers they built log huts. They laid
ambuscades, attacked strongholds, cap
tured parties and did many other ad
venturous things. Their costumes were
gathered from the farmhouse garrets
and consisted of colonial, continental.
1812 and train band uniforms former
ly common in old New England fami
liesand imitations of the dress of the
Narragansett and Iroquois Indiana The
weapons were old flint look muskets,
shotguns, rusty swords, tomahawks and
bows and arrows-
It is easy to infer that the Miles boy
had military aspirations, and that the
promise of an appointment to West
Point when he should be of the required
age would have been bailed by bim
with delight But a farmer's boy with
out relatives or friends with political
influence had no hope of such an ap
pointment in those days, when cadet
ships went by favor and not by com
petitive examination. New York Press.
