of carpet, a highly polished center ta

tilled with rare old brass and delft
ware. The most curious thing abo-it
the house are the sleeping quarters
unique and certainly unhealthy frota
the model ti viewpoint, which requires
plenty of fresh air in the IxHlroonis.
The cheesemiiker's family sleeps lo
beds built iu cupboard-liUe recesses In
the wall and as far from the window
as possible. There Is a door similar to
that of a rnpboard. and this Is kept
closed diirl!:" the day Id order that the
bed may be hidden from view. The
stuffy condition of this walled la bed
room cud be readily imagined. The
linen la always snowy white, and the
whole makeup presents an attractive
appearance even to the decorated stra?

THE SWISS PRESIDENT.
His Powers Are Quit Limitad, and So
la His Salary.
The president of Switzerland Is bo
hedged about by the constitution that,
except for official purposes and to fa
cilitate the exchange of courtesies and
of a mien file understandings with for
eign nations, he has no more standing
than the other Biz members of the
council of which he forms a part. He
Is elected for one year, has no official
residence, and his chief business is to
sign the documents of the bundeerat
or council of seven. His salary is in
our money etjual to about $3,000 per
annum, and there Is no provision for
private expenses, such as traveling or
entertaining. He la expected to live
in the capital of the country during
the year he holds office. His associate
members in the bundesrat get $3,000 a
year, and they are elected for three
years, their votes having the Bume
force as that of the president
j As a rule, the president of Swltzer-
laDd Is before election a member of
i this council and Is elected to the high
er office without opposition, but in 1SS.T
he had a rival, and. though he won In
the election, he was unable to support
what In his country Is looked upon as
an affront and committed suicide be
fore his inauguration.
In this connection it might be well
to note. too. that Switzerland Is the
one country on the globe where it costs
Dollilng to die. as In certain cantons
rich and t'oor are buried at the ex
pense of the state. Harper's Weekly.

It mis to. late to go back, for the au

nt:i-r advanced to the footlighis. The
knowledge f this mishap took all the
fun out of Ferraiiti, ami the duet,
which was sung in Italian, was so
dolefully devoid of its usual humor
that I'utli noticed it before they were
half through, and. dropping tl.e text
of the duet, she titled the following
words to it. in Italian: "What Is the
mutter with you tonight? I dn't un
derstand y.'iir nervousness. NoUidy
laughs at you:"
Whereupon I'errantl. in the melliflu
ous Italian, responded: "ity the saints,
I lii'.ve burst my coat! I!very body will
laugh, when I go T the stagi- if they
don't now !"
At tliis unexpected 'interchange of
personal feelings Max M::-et.eI; and
his on h extra began to laugh. Then
the people in the front scats, seeing
the orchestra and the artii-ts laughing.
Joined !n themselves, and the merri

morning, "there is always something
