Since 18'JO, when the ballot re
formers, ho called, got their lirst
foothold in Albany, the system of
voting bus been changed 83 often
that only individuals skilled in the
knowledge of the intricate of the
law for votingcan tell precisely what
they, anil other citizens, are ex
peeled to do and what legally they
are prohibited from doing. This
year there will be still another a lili
Hon to to the inconveniences. Here
tofore the legal registry of voters has
shown the age ami residence of the
applicant, together with the duration
of his residence in the state, county
and election district, and the date of
his citizen papers, if he is a natur
alized voter. This vear, in addition
there is to be entered as a condition
of registty a statement of the voter's
height, approximate weight, color
of hair, peculiarities of voice and
speech, and visible marks on face.
The latter designation is probably
meant unusual visible marks, for the
ordinary citiz;u with eyes, nose and
mouth, expects these features to be

ones upon his visage. The new

The appropriation of $124,000 by

The committee has offered premium
amounting to f 1,203 for compctitiv

NAPOLEON'S ORIENTAL DREAMS.
lie Longed to Follow In ttie Footsteps of
Alexander the Great.
Bonaparte was a child of the Mediter
ranean. L he lixht or its sparkling wa
ters was ever iu hi: cyos, and the fasci
nation of its ancient civilizations was
never ab..cnt from hU dreams of plory.
Hid proclamations rinir with classic al
lusions; his festivals were adorned with
classic ceremony, lu infancy lie had
knowu of Genoa, tno tyrant of his is
land, i strong in the splendid commer
cial enterprises which Btretched east
ward through tlio Levant and beyond
into the farther orient. In childhood lie
had fed his imagination on the histories
cf Alexander the Great and his conquest
of oriental empires. In youth he had
thought to find uu open, door for his am
bition when all othorj seemed closed by
taking service with England to tliare
tho renown of those v.-l:c were lrailding
up her eastern eripiro IT".pnoiuted i:i
this, lie turned with tha i juio laci of
success to Rr.; sia. u'.mu'.y England's ri
val ou the continent of Asia.
It is perfectly comprehensible that
throughout Lis early manhood his mind
should havo occasionally reverted tj the
same ideals. The conqueror of Italy and
Austria nn.rht hope to realize them.
Was he not master of the two great
maritime commonwealths which Iiart
once shared all eastern trade between
them? England's intrusion upon the
Mediterranean basin was a never ceasing
rritaticc to all the Latin povcrs. Her
commercial prosperity and her mastery
of tho seas aggravated the exasperation
of France as threatening even her equali
ty iu their ancient rivalry. Iroia tho
days of the first crusade all Frenchmen
had felt that leadership in the recon
traction of Asia belonged to them by
virtuo of preoccupation. Ardent rcpnb
licans, moreover, saw France s mission
incomplete iu the liberalizing of the
continent, and the department of marine
under tho directory stamped ltd paper
with tlio r.ie.tto, "Liberty of tho Seas."
Imaginative forces, tho revolution
ary svstem and tho national ambition
all combined to create nbiquitous en
thusiasm for tho conquest of tho Med'
iterranean. To this tho temperament
aud training of Bonaparte were as tho
spark to the tinder. It was with willing
ears that tho directory heard his first
suggestions about the Venetian isles and
sttbscqncutly Iris plans for the captu:
of Malta, which was to bo followed by
a death blow to England's supremacy in
the seizure of Egypt and tho dismem
berment of Turkey. W. M. Sloano'a

A SPIDER FARM.
A Simp Bottler Tina Recruited tlie Spider
Against Ilia Foes With Sacecsa.
A simp bottler has improved upon tho
prison lesson of Bruce, lie lias taRcu
the spider into partnership in the work
ing of one of his most important oepart
ments. Flies, cockroaches aud other iu-
seets, attracted by his sweets, and en
couraged by tho genial utuiosphero of
his buttiina room, used to interfere with
his work, get iuta his bottles, steal his
goodd and "worry him to death." Ko
ha.- recruited the sjrider aain.st his foes
nud vanquished them. Some 0,000 Fin
ders now make their homo oil the ceiling
and walls of his bottling department.
Their webs aro everywhere, and they bo
have theiisMdvi-swiih great intelligence.
i?aid the butller to an interviewer:
"Thcso creatures know moro than a
great many ix-oplo. Spiders do not care
for sweet things, and never drop into
ny vati or get into my bottles. I never
disturb them cscept to feed them occa
sionally. Tiiey appear to know my call,
and will come out cud feed from my
hand, cr tako a fly from niy linger.
"Ihey shut themselves up during
most of tho winter months in tho little
nests yon see stuck like daubs of mud
about the ccilhig. When winter comes,
I brush away the webs. They prefer to
weave new ones every spring.
"Each May they reappear ready to
unravel tho silken fabric that is stored
iu their little bodies. It is jnt about
then that the flies have hatched their
first yoang. If the spiders appear earlier,
the crop of fiie would soon give out.
"I haTo been only running this spider
farm for two years, but I iiud my littlo
partners indispensable. They will not
endure iu the place a single tly cr inject
that is a plunderer of sweets and sir
ops." Pituburg Dispatcu.
A Tattooed Snake.
Tho sailors of tho gulf cf Mexico and
tho eauatorial regions of tho Atlantis
ocean amuse themselves and also turn an
occasional honest penny by capturing
both largo aud small snakes of tho xx
riety known as the lemon boa and cov
ering their bodies with tattooed letters
and designs. One ot Uiese living in;iuu
scripts was recently exhibited at Egyp
tian hall, Loudon, which had the whole
of the third chapter of Genesis and some
pieces from Punch tattooed upon his
back iu iudeliblo letters of various col
ors. Thousands of these tattooed snakes
are annually disposed of at Rio do Ja
neiro. The buyers generally kill these
snakes aud cither skin them or preserve
the entire reptile in alcohoL Suehqieet

A BUSINESS ROMANCE.

A vonns man who was working as
,.Wk- i ir-irHirtinf. honse had ccca-
sion frequently in the course of business
to call at a certain large manuiacrunug
estabbshmc-nt The bead cf tho concern
took a fancv to him. One day he asked,
tho young man what salary ho was gct
tiug", what his ch:incc3 of promotion
were and so on. lie was told ana uica
said to tho yonng man that he thought
thero was a belter opportunity for mm
in his oflico than in the house where ne
was then employed.
Tho yonns man replied that nesuouia
of coerce like to better himself, bat
that hia engagement would not permit
him to leave for some time to comc.
Tho head of the house said he thought
ho might induce his employer to let
him go. ITe accordingly wrote a note to
tho senior partner of tho iiniiorUng
house, with whom he was on intimate
terms, saying that he had formed a lik
ing for tho yonng man, that ho ix-licvod
there was a better opening for him in
his office aud asking that he be released.
Tho next day the yonng man cams back
with a letter in which his employer.
whilo expressing re.rret ot losing bis
services, said that ho recognized the
larger opportunity offered him, aud, as
he didn't want to stand m his way, re
leased him. Tho clerk went to work in
his new position and so conSnncd his
cmplovcr's good impressions that his
promotion was rapid. He went from one
rcspousiblo position, to another until be
was next to the manager ot the house.
A short time ago the manager died, and
"our hero,"..iiow no longer a yout:
man of course, bnt still in the primo of
life, took his place at a salary very
nearly if not nnifc aj largo as that of
tho presideut of the United States.

Cnstoots of I'ollsb Women.
In Poland princesses and peasants
wear around the throat several rows of
huge coral heaths which aro supposed to
bo lucky the bigger the beads the great
er tho luck and tho dingy looking mer
chants of tho "Zwierjenetz" (Je.wi.di
quarter of tho town), at Cracow, realizo
small fortunes from tho salo of theso
exval necklaces, for a Polo of the lower
classes will almost sooner go without
food or without her beloved "vodki"
(brandy) than forego this cherished or
nament. The "grandc dame" is so loath
to separato from her lucky beads that,
when donning evening dress with its
paraphernalia of pearls and diamonds.
she carries them in her pocket or in the
inside of her corsage.
Whilo ou the subject of Poland, I may
add that tho orthodox Jewesses there
with whom the country literally swarras
aro easily distinguished, apart from
any physical mark of race, by tho silken
wigs which tluy arc forced to adopt cu
tho morrow of their wedding day. Their
religion exacts that on the wedding night
the tresses should full under the bites of
a pair of silver scissors, aud the niassa-
cro is so complete that, shorn close to
the scalii, they conceal the tkull under
a hideous construction of coarse silken
strands, highly ornamented in incstcar.es
with baniLi of black velvet sewed with
small pearls and turquoises. New York
