THE CHILDREN GET THE GRAVY.

I think of the children's absolute nerve
about the gravy. What I mean is that
when we have a took, or roast beef, of
anything that has gravy with it, the
children take it all, down to the last
drop, without leaving a speck for their
father and mother. And they're perfect
ly sound hearted, wholesome children,
too, who would do anything they could
for their parents. But about some things
tbey haved a selfishness that appears to
be perfectly natural to children, and
that I suppose is bred la indulgence.
They bavo all their lives been accus
tomed to having everything that their
parents could give them, and so tbey
come to expect it.
"But I smile again as I recall the fact
that when I was a boy I got all the
gravy. Time and again I have seen my
father tip the dish so that be might get
far me the last drop, while be bad none
for himself. He was very fond of
gravy, too, but he never said so. With
grave courtesy he gave it all to me, as
though I were entitled to it When I
grew a little older, I reproached myself
sometimes for having taken it alL
When I grew older still and came to
know how gentle and affectionate and
forbearing and generous bo was, I came
to know that ho wouldn't for the world
havo marred my pleasure by so much as
a word that the simple fact was that
it was a far greater pleasure to bim to
give mo the gravy than it would have
been to eat it himself.
"And now wbeu the children pass
their plates I gravely dish out the gravy
down to the last drop, and I say nothing
for fear that they will rob me of the
selfish pleasnro cf giving it all to them.
But I smile to myself once more as I
think of what will happen when they
como to have children of their own. I
know what they'll do then. They'll give
it all to the children, down to the last,
last drop. " New York Sun.

"By the way," said a gentleman who
arrived here from England a few days
ago, "have you beard of tbo London
theatrical managers' latest scheme to
attract a crowd on first nights? Well,
it's rather odd, nnd I wouldn't bo ear-
prised if the Mew Yorkers copied it be

are somewhat different here.
"You know, the littlo tea and coffee

"It is the custom there for great
crowds to como to the pit and gallery
entrances of tho theaters long before the
time of opening the doors. The pit is
one of the best parts of the theater for
seeing and hearing, and it costs only 60
cents, but there are no reserved seats.
so those who come early get the good
"It is common, in the case of impor
tant first nights, for a long line of peo
ple to form at the pit doors before it is
opened, and when the play is very suc
cessful and popular this may continue
for an indefinite number of nights.
"It has now become the custom to
admit those who care to pay sixpence
extra for the privilcgo at 5:30. Then
tbey get good seats, but they have to
wait a prodigiously long time in their
places before the play begins.
"This stato of things recently inspired
some ingenious manager with another
happy thought He bit on tho plan of
providing free coueo and cakes, from
tho nearest tea and coffee rooms, to the
crowd waiting in the pit on the first
night of his new play. It proved such a
good arrangement that the others fol
lowed tho example. ' New York Her
Of the multifarious rjes of tbo hair'
pin, some at least are well known. They
are suggested by a Fronch traveler's de
scription of a pin which the Indian
women of Peru woar as a fastening for
their shawls. Its head is in the shape of
a spoon. In fact, it is a 6poon and a
shawl pin in one.
It is odd, the Frenchman says, to see
a woman pall out the pin, letting her
shawl drop from her bare shoulders, end
proceed to nso it for eating her soup or
porridge. After the repast she passes
the bowl of tho spoon carefully between
her lips two or three times, gathers up
her shawl and fastens it in place.
The same women use their Elippers
instead of pocketbooks a point in
which they may bo said to have the ad
vantage of their North American Sis
ters, who, having no pockets, or none
within comfortable reach, are compelled
to carry their purses in their hands.
The money of Lima consists of bank
notes, which go very well into the bot

GENERAL GORDON'S STORY.
A Esniaai n Brrsa I th TtUck ad

'At Oettysburg, while- the fight
tho hottest," saJd General Gordon, "I
noticed a handsome young Federal offi
cer, whose bravery was conspicuous.
After the battle bad subsided I found this
gallant soldier lying on the field. He
was dying end begged mo to send a
message to the Union lines. Bis wife
bad decided to share with bim the for
tunes of war and was at tho officers'
quarters in too Federal army.
"I ordered my men to tako the wound
ed officer to onr camp and to mako him
as comfortable as possible. Then I sent
some men with a flag of truce to the
Union lines with tho message from the
dying officer to his wife.
"Late that night the party returned.
and the meeting of the dying husband
and his young wife was tbo most affect
ing scene which I have ever witnessed.
"I was compelled to go elsewhere,
but before I left the sorrowing couple I
ascertained that the name of the wound
ed officer was Major Barlow of New
York. I often thought of the sad inci
dent, which made upon me one of the
most vivid impressions that I received
in the war.
"Shortly afterward a cousin of mine
whose name and initials were the same
as mine was killed in battle.
"The war closed. Ten years afterward
I was with a distinguished gentleman
in New York who invited me to bo
present at a dinner be was to give that
evening. Among the guests to whom 1
was introduced was a certain Major
Barlow. I supposed that he was a cousin
of the man whom I had left dying on
tho field at Gettysburg with his devoted
wifo beside bim.
" 'Ionco knows Blajor Barlow,' I
said to my new acquaintance.
" 'I ouco knew a General Gordon,' he
" 'But the Major Barlow I knew is
dead,' I added.
" 'And the General Gordon whom I
knew is nlso dead, ' he answered.
"I started to tell him the story of the
Major Barlow whom I had left dying
on tho field at Gettysburg when be in
terrupted me, exclaiming:
" 'My God, General Gordon, I am
that man 1 But you were killed at An
tietain. " 'And I know you died at Gettys
burg, said L 'for I saw yon.
"Mutual explanations followed. It
sooras strange to me that the warmest
friendship of my life should have begun
in those awful scenes of blood and car
nage at Gettysburg. The simple service
that I performed that day when I sent
for that dying soldier s wife has made
Major Barlow and bis wife the dearest

CORSICA AS A REPUBLIC
It Was Founded In tho Eleventh Centnry,

During the tenth century Corsica was
the prey of rcuteuding barons, who in
their straggles for territory ravaged the
island and despoiled tho people.
At last, in tho first year of tbo
eleventh centnry, tho lord of the Cinar
ca, to the northeast of Ajaccio, a baron
more powerful than the rest, sought to
mako himself ruler of the island under
the title of count of Corsica.
He had triumphed over his brother
barons, but ho bad not reckoned with
tho democracy of tbo island. That long
suffering body arose, and in one deci
sive battle swept away the lord of the
Cinarca and proclaimed that the land of
Corsica belonged to tho pecplo of Cor
sica. Sambncuccio nnd tho island nssombly
founded in 11)07 what is known as "La
Terra di Commune" and gave it a pop

been held eacred. Under this constitu
tion tho various hamlets of a valley
were formed into a pieve, or parish,
presided over by a podesta, or mayor,
and two or more "communal fathers,"
who nominated a caporalo, a sort of
tribune of the people.
Tbo various podestas or mayors of
different parishes assembled and elected
