In France we find tbat tbe potato
waa placed on tbe royal table in tbe
year 1610, bnt it was Parmentier, an
apothecary, wbo really introduced it and
did all be could to get it generally cnl
tlvnted, though not witbool tbe assist
ance of tbe government. In 1771 a high
prise was offered by tbe Academy of
Peaanonn for tbe discovery of a new
food which would fill tbe place of ce
reals In ease of a famine. Parmentier
bowed bia potatoes, and Loo is XVI gave
him 50 morgan of land to plant them
on. When showing tbe first flow en of
bis potato, tbe king oaed them aa a
buttonhole booqoet. Uoeen Marie An
toineote bad tbem ia tbe evening in ber
hair, and at once princes, dukes and
bigh functionaries went to Parmentier
to obtain sncb flowers.
All Paria talked of nothing bnt pota

king said, "France will thank jroa some
time bene became too. nave found

not forgotten Parmentier, for I aaw my

WEIGHT POSSlBiw'TIES OF CARP.
If Watt Fed and Treated, They Attala a
Big nab chronicles are alwava Inter
esting. Attention ia Just now being be
stowed apon the weight possibilities of
carp. These fish are notoriously long
uvea, and, provided tbey are not caught
before tbey bare bad a chance of living
long, and, provided again, tbev have
few enemiea and solicitous keepers to
supplement their natural food supply
regularly, it is only natural tbat they
sbouM grow to a relatively great size.
Under normal conditions, of course, tbey
do not exceed a few pounds, and, as it
is the normal conditions that prevail.
discussion of what tbey might attain
may be regarded by not a few aa some
thing of a futility. Still, tbey are some
times placed in peculiarly favorable cir
cumstances, and, as the question is
really concerned with what weight they
can reach. It ia not such a futility after
We must go abroad for the biggest
carp of which angling history baa to
telL In a private pond in Saxony there
aaed to be a pair of breeding carp wboee
united weight in Saxony measure (7 per
cent heavier tban English) reached 91
pounds. The male was 43 pounds and
tbe female 48 pounds. By good living
and attention tbey even exceeded this.
In 1 1 years tbe male put on 9 pounds
and tbe female IS pounds. The pond
which afforded a borne for these crea
tures waa a famous one. In one year
4,000 pounds of carp were taken from it
to say nothing of tench and jack. In
this same pond which, by the way, cov- J
erea it acres me proprietor bad left
several carp for breeding. Five of these
weighed 103 pounds Saxon, and the
largest of tbe Ave, a Spiegol carp, aged
10 years, drew in tbe scale Sli pounds
English. The sge of tbe two first alluded
to could not be estimated. Tbey were on
tbe estate when it was purchased from
another family, CO years before.
We have never to our personal knowl
edge known a carp tbat exceeded 22
pounds to be caught ia English waters.
A brace which weighed 85 pounds was
once presented to tbe late Lord Egre-
mont. A curious thing about these big
fish is their tamenees. Mr. Pennell tells
us he has seen carp in the garden ponds
of Rotterdam eagerly following visitors
about to be fed, while one immense fel
low, with a side aa broad aa a flitch of
bacon and an appetite that aeamed in
satiable, actually pursued him for near
ly 100 yards along the side of tbe bank
until bis stock of bread bad run out.
This flub, be adds, must have weighed
15 pounds. Their rate of growth has
been approximately computed to be
3 pounds during the first six years and
0 pounds before tho tenth year. Poll

The Russian army was strong in reg
nlar infantry, but weak in well disci
plined cavalry, although the latter defect
waa largely supplied by the Cossacks, a
peculiar body of riders from the Volga
and tbe Dou, wbo paid the rental of
their lands to the crown by four years
military service at their own charges.
Then, as now, they fought with barbar-
lo ferocity. Tbey attacked in open for
mation, each man for himself, and gave
no quarter until tbe czar offered a ducat
for every live Frenchman. Tbey were
known to ride 100 mi lea in 24 hours,
and their services in pursuing an en
emy were invaluable. Professor W. M.

Dumas fila bad curt manners. He waa
shy. Like xn art ahy people, be vanquish

I apeak of a sealed book to him. I recol
lect a tilt between him and an Irish
girl, brought np in Paris, who sat op
posite to him at dinner. She waa singu
larly plain. Bnt her ugliness waa most
amusing, and she waa a witty, good
tempered boing. Tbe nose waa abort,

laughing and tbe tongue lisping, bnt.
as tbe French say, bien pendne for rep
artee. Dumas, after staring some time at
ber, put bia forefinger to tbe tip of bia
semiaquiline noae and pushed it up. He
kept it so for some 'time, still staring.
Tbe pantomime was grossly impertinent.
I tbougbt nd so did every one else
that the poor girl would burst into tears.
She laughed, not a bit hysterically, and,
feeling she was an object of general at
tention and of sympathy, made a funny
remark on the grimace tbat M. Dumas
was pleased to give himself. He began
to rally ber. She flnng back retorts. I
never beard such a mimio war of wards
before or since. It ended in a splendid
victory, through good humor and wit,
on the young lady's side. She spoke
French to perfection. "M. Alpbonse"
waa then on the stage. Mr. Ernest Pin
ard, wbo listened with rapture, cried,
"Mademoiselle enfonoe votre Alphon
sine!" Alphonsine was the comic actress
in that play.
Dumas retired from tbe combat net
tled, but be did not long bear malice.
He afterward said what a pity it was
that la jeune Irlandaise etait dans le
monde. She bad tbe viacomica in a
greater degree than any actress or actor
he had ever seen, and proved that where

telescope can bo focussed so as to suit
the latter. But it does seem a little odd
that the gifted scientist in question
